The Leafs began the 2011-12 season in fine style and sat atop of Northeast Division for some time. As the schedule got harder, so did the ability to win games.
After losing starting goaltender James Reimer to concussion-like symptoms for almost six weeks, the Leafs really started to look like a sieve defensively, giving up copious amounts of goals.
As of December 19th, 2011, the Leafs have scored the eighth-most goals in the NHL at 100. However, they have also given up fifth most goals against at 105. No real balance there, and because of that, the Leafs have plummeted in the standings, falling to seventh, one point away from the ninth spot and two points from 12th in the Eastern Conference.
There have been many problems with the Leafs this season, but the main problem of course has been their atrocious specialty teams, where the main focus is their penalty kill. The Leafs are probably considering calling the entire Marlies team up to kill the penalties for them.
