"I Finally Like What I See In Leaf-Land"

Mitch. Mitchell.Correspondent IMarch 10, 2010

I could hardly wait to sit down and hammer the keys on The Leafs fine team effort over the Bruins: A great 4-3 over-time win for "The Buds".

It has been quite some time since Leaf fans have seen two or three good team efforts, such is the case since the Hurricane loss.

There seems to be a sense of "Pride" coming from every player now, and it has been years since I have had that feeling.

I do not think a real 'True Blue Fan" minds losing that much, if the team effort is there!.

The goal tending is coming along, and you can see that the young players want to be there.

"Kessel" seems to get the best out of the opposition goal tender, "Kessel" has had some bad luck of late.

I do believe at the moment: that "Nick Kuleman" is Toronto's best player, but you have to love the effort of all the young guys.

If Toronto continues their fine play the rest of the season: Burke will have to be very careful with his tinkering of the team in the off season.

If Burke can find that Missing link, a Centreman: then I think The Leafs will have a good playoff run in 2011/2012.
