A TALE AS OLD AS TIME (KINDA) | Leafs Hub
I'm using an ancient photo for this article because it's far too fitting. Mike Babcocks prediction has finally come to fruition. The pain is here. Who knew it would take this long? And who knew that as much as things have changed, they have stayed the same in a lot of respects. The numbers I'm about to show people aren't in depth by any means. Nor are they indicative of any one player, players, or coaches. But when I started to think about the recent history of the team I started to feel like a real life version of Bill Murrays "Phil" from Groundhog Day. You know, that movie where Phil lives the same day over and over again? Dangerous power play. Bad penalty kill. Solid goals for. Terrible goals against. Horrid shots against. Get a good nights sleep (or summer off, if you will), and wake up to the same nightmarish reality.
