[Thursday Leafs Links] TANK, BABY, TANK!

Mike Carlson

There is really no excuse for winning the next two games.

The Leafs can basically do themselves no good by winning these last two games, and stand to gain by getting a (slightly) better pick in the first round. The playoffs aren't going to happen, and no player is going to prove himself as either capable or incapable in the span of a few days. The Leafs should shut down their vets nursing even minor injuries (Lupul and Bolland are already done) and - discreetly - mail this one in. You wouldn't want them to be accused of tanking by the league, but after losing 9 out of 12 to miss the playoffs, I think the league is unlikely to do so.

In any event, on to the links.
