Thoughts on Leafs 2018 Collapse

I’ve let a few days go bye to let my emotions settle down. The Leafs nation has suffered another horrific collapse at the hands of the Boston Bruins. This one is easier for Leafs Nation as we are getting used to it.
While many leafs played well, Mitch Marner was outstanding. Strong on the puck, dangerous on every rush. He should be the highest paid leaf and possibly captain. He doesn’t give up and was dangerous on every shift in the 2018 playoffs. Andreas Johnsson, Zach Hyman, Patrick Marleau, Morgan Rielly, Ron Hainsey, Roman Polak, and Tomas Plekanec are some other notables. Thomas Plekanec actually surprised me.
Some of the leafs did not play so well. I was looking for Nylander and Mathews to show up (MIA most of the games),unfortunately when they did show up, they were floating to the outside or giving the puck away. When they shared the ice with Jake Gardiner bad things would become worse. Sigh…either these players are injured or they are soft with no heart. It will hurt them when they are negotiating for new contracts.  Marner should be the highest paid leaf. Mitch Marner for Captain!  Hunter was right….let him lead this group!
