We have been waiting for this type of Leaf Team for quite some time, and so has every person that is involved wth the Blue And White.
The players on this years team know full-well what it takes to be a good solid hockey player and play in this kind of a hockey market.
Make no mistake about it, the players also know the great chemistry that has taken over in the dressing room this year.
As a player, one would have the feeling of being giddy- with excitement, but not wanting to show it.
I have had this type of feeling in my playing days and it is a fantastic feeling.
It is like one big happy family- every player doing his job, every player knowing exactly what is expected of him.
The players get the attitude: we do not know how to loose, and when we do, everyone is to be held accountable, not just finger pointing- we loose together- we win together.
Now we get to my point of one game at a time.
I have read some write-ups of the standings, cups, parades,.hold on folks, let's not let this mentallity get into the dressing room.
If our current Leaf team continues to grow physically, as well as mentally, and they play one discipline game at a time: Great things will happen with this current Leaf Team.
My only negative point from the two games to date:
Please D-Men: Don't turn back into your end after gaining possession of the puck, the fore-checking will kill you, not only that- your own forwards are out of your end waiting for the pass.
