Here's @APetrielli on Leafs: "Whatever their defensive system is, they have to tear it down and start from scratch." mapleleafshotstove.com/2014/04/07/lea…
Story: On how the Leafs players are still mystified by what went wrong fw.to/u3clXcG
If you've never read @blackdogpat's whimsy, here's a good post on #watchthegames to start with blackdoghatesskunks.blogspot.ca/2014/04/an-inc…
Karri Ramo's save percentage up to .933 since Olympic break with that shutout.
Devils lose. Very good news for Columbus' playoff hopes. Leafs chances creep up over 2%.
Flames on verge of playing major spoilers vs Devils. Up 1-0 late in third. Ramo's sure been good lately.
Dreger "I think Carlyle's job is obviously in jeopardy. Can't go through this type of disappointment without that happening."

Kadri: "If you look at us, it really sucks, because for 85 per cent of the year, we were one of the top 10 teams in the league."
Kadri: "It’s been really hard on the players. It’s not like we want to lose. It’s not like we’re going out there and not trying our best."
Carlyle remarked today that the staff was "mystified" that the Leafs penalty killing was so poor when they had such a good save percentage.
Lightning have given Steve Yzerman a four year contract extension.
Follow @LW3H if you're interested in that kind of thing. Best injury updates going.

ICYMI: Leafs biggest issues are depth and defensive structure. So why is everyone blaming their best players? bit.ly/1fVtvMg
Leafs may shut Lupul down for the year.
On way down to Tampa. Leafs on ice down there at 1 p.m. for practice.
Just want to point out that the front office of the team that won 2 of the last 4 cups deemed Bolland to be expendable. Not a core piece.

Seriously, who cares who people cheer for in the playoffs. It keeps them engaged with the sport and it shouldn't diminish your enjoyment.

As an addendum, I can't think of a more disastrous conclusion for the Leafs to reach than "if we just had Dave Bolland, everything's fine."

Columbus win drops Leafs playoff chances to 1.6%. Only a 14% chance even if they go 3-0 to finish.
Bumped into Jets owner David Thomson outside Winnipeg dressing room last night. Some more motivation for them to win with him in building.
Commenter: "I've watched nearly every Jets game, and that may be the worst game I've seen their opponents play inside their own blueline."
