Leafs winless...STILL?

The downward spiral in Toronto continues...after Saturday's 4-1 loss to the New York Rangers, the team is 0-6-1, and the wailing and gnashing of teeth continues in Leaf land.

Now, we all know that at some point, the team will get off the schneid and start winning some games, but does anyone really think that, barring some kind of miracle turn around (Wendel Clark is not walking through that door...Johnny Bower is not walking through that door...Borje Salming is not walking through that door!) that Toronto has the horses to pull off any kind of playoff run?

If the season ended today, the Bruins would be looking at the following picks overall in the first two rounds (not taking into account the lottery system):

1st (Toronto)
9th (Boston)
31st (Toronto)
38th (Tampa Bay)
39th (Boston)

OK- we know that Boston isn't as bad as they currently are sitting in the standings, but that's the kind of haul that should make all draftniks dance a little jig.

We'll do this pick update every Monday, so be sure to check back at the first of every week to see where Boston is picking.
