Shh: Let's not wake up Damien Cox

Editor's Note: Quick, someone send Damien Cox out to cover a tennis tournament.

Damien Cox, September 28, 2009:

Somehow, the Maple Leafs will make the playoffs.  There, I said it...you can bet on an improved sense of team identity to help Brian Burke’s Leafs, and let’s face it, the mediocrity of so many Eastern Conference teams leaves the door wide open for any club able to put together a 93-95 point season.

Leafs' record, next 8 games:  0-7-1

Damien Cox, December 1, 2009:

There's a useful clarity to being awful. Awful as opposed to average...nobody would disagree any more that the Maple Leafs are a lousy hockey club this season, destined to finish in the lower rungs of the NHL...[a]fter 25 games, the hole is too big for Ron Wilson's group to be in contention for even the last playoff berth in the east...Burke will have a tough decision to make on his coaches if this turns out to be a 20-win season...nobody's fooling anybody any longer. The state of the Leafs is crystal clear.

Leafs' record, next 8 games:  6-2-0
