It’s difficult for most fans not to be caught up in the ups and downs of their team during a long NHL season. Leaf fans are certainly no exception.
When the Leafs are winning things typically feel pretty good, even when we offer up a reality check statement like, “They aren’t playing that well; they can’t keep this up forever…”. Conversely, when the team loses ground in the standings, it’s easy to pick at the team’s flaws and make things sound worse than they really are.
I try to capture some of that sentiment in the latest “Vintage Leaf Memories Podcast”. I normally talk about my favourite subject—the olden days—during these programs, but today it felt timely to discuss the current state of affairs in Leafland.
Just days ago the club was what, third overall in the Eastern Conference standings? Suddenly, even injury-plagued Detroit (with all those games in hand) is not far behind the blue and white.
So instead of talking about old-time Leafs like Duff, Keon (right), Horton and Bower or Sittler and Salming, it’s all about the Randy Carlyle Leafs on the latest VLM podcast.
