It's all over. Habs: 4 Maple Leafs: 1

The Leafs played the last game of their season tonight. It, like every game since February 6, was not pleasant to watch. The loss ties the Leafs' end-of-season points with the Ducks, but as regular-and-overtime wins are tied, and the Leafs only played one game against the Ducks, the -33 to -27 goal differential puts the Leafs' pick in 5 - lotto territory - while the Ducks will pick sixth.

If you weren't planning it already, take this opportunity to watch some quality playoff hockey, but I should warn you: comparing playoff-teams' performance to recent Leaf play may induce serious bouts of depression, so make sure you don't think about that. Afterwards, feel free to strap yourself in for an entertaining and/or terrifying offseason. We've got the draft lotto and draft day itself to "look forwards" to, and with any luck, a Vintage Brian Burke-quality trade, without a Vintage Brian Burke-quality signing.

There really isn't much to recap. The Leafs allowed a 5-on-3 shorthanded breakaway goal against. Dion scored. Carey Price was seen wearing a cowboy-themed Halloween costume. The usual.

Leaf-related or not, what are you most looking forwards to this Toronto offseason? The Pittsburgh-Philadelphia opening playoff matchup? Getting angry over the Annual Snub Pat Burns Voting Charade? The complete hockey-silence of August?
