They weren't supposed to beat Ottawa, Boston, New Jersey or Montreal either. The team is young, playing for jobs next year and no pressure. All bets are off.....
Realistically, I think BadHab is probably right, not enough games to catch all the teams directly in front of them, although I think they will ultimately catch 1 of Islanders, Columbia, Carolina or Florida just based on the schedule remaining. Still, depending on how the balls go, the Bruins could still get 1st, 2nd or 3rd pick.
As a Leaf fan, first, I'm very encouraged with the team Burke has put together now and with Kadri coming next year it should be better. Even Gustovasson is starting to look better. Kessel scored another laser.....beginning to think this trade will work out well for both teams.
Regardless of where the Leafs finish, I watched the whole Leaf/Hab game and it's obvious what is lacking in the Bruin game right now. There simply isn't enough team speed either at the forwards or the defence. That's why they need someone like Hall. Hopefully the Bruins focus on picking up some more speed.
Montreal absolutely flies out there and Toronto is also a very fast skating team (but not quite as fast as Montreal).
