It is with heavy hearts we announce the elimination of the Toronto Maple Leafs from the 2011 post season playoffs. The Leafs started the season auspiciously by winning their first 4 games giving Chris, Rhino, Noxcape and other anonymous Leaf fans hope that this may be the year. Alas it was not to be. The old Leafs returned. Inconsistency, poor goaltending, lack of secondary scoring, poor coaching, poor power play, poor penalty killing proved to be the Leafs' demise.....again. Along the way they lost not once but twice to the Vancouver Canucks, Canada's team, Western Conference Champions and the President's Tropy winner. Their elimination tonight marked the 6th consecutive year they have missed the playoffs. What a grate team the Leafs are. This obituary cannot be completed without repeating the refrain that Leaf fans are familiar with:
Leafs suck !
