Habs blog trashes Leaf fans, DGB, PPP

38

It's systematic from fans of the Maple Leafs. Whereas Canadiens fans were too unmoved to bother expressing opinions on the Leafs latest playoff-eschewer-to-be last season, there's hardly a Leafs blog worth its weight that passes up Martin bashing. I think it's essentially because Leafs fans, young ones especially especially have built their identities around two fundamental truths: 1) That beating Ottawa in 4 consecutive playoff series was the best thing about their decade 2) That 1993 was their year, cheated only of their latest Cup by foul refereeing ... I suspect that if a psychoanalyst were to probe into Toronto's complex about Jacques Martin, they might find a more profound complex about the falterings of Pat Quinn with sometimes superior and often more playoff-ready contending teams. (I suspect they'd have a lot to say about me writing this article about Toronto's complex too...).
