Toronto Maple Leafs: Will They Be Better in 2011-12?

As a Leafs fan, I am used to hearing "Leaf Bashing" all year round. I find it funny because the only people that ever talk about "planning the parade" are the bashers. I will admit that the Leafs have their fair share of fans who make the rest of us look silly, but for the most part, I think real Leafs fans make less noise about the team than the haters.

I have heard and read too much over the summer about how this team is no better than last year or the year before that. I also hear that GM Brian Burke has done nothing since arriving in 2008.

Well, I won't go all the way back to '08, but I will explain why the Maple Leafs have a better team in 2011-12 than last year's squad.
