So as has been pointed out, this now makes it 3 of the last 4 years where the team that knocked the Leafs out went on to the Finals.

I think Boston also went to the finals in the reimer/Phaneuf era.

You know what I also forget that TB went to the finals in 2015 I think. They are pretty much at oilers of the 80s dominance at this point.

I think Leafs just need a ‘slightly’ more favourable first round match up to go on a run next year.

The NHL playoff format is CFL level stupid.

You know, I'm starting to think the Lighting aren't exactly "very beatable".

You mean, the team that has faced elimination for all of 3 games over their past 11 playoff series might be a tough out? Who knew?

Don't worry guys. We just need to be more like the Lightning. We just have to figure out a way to get all of our top tier players to sign their contracts for way below market value because of advantageous local tax laws and nice boating weather.

Remember how much it sucked when players signed with teams just because they offered the most money? Glad that's fixed.

They were absolutely 100% beatable in our series but we didn't show up for games 2 and 4, seriously we should have beat them, no excuses.

Sucks doesn't it. We have to hope for a weaker opponent to advance. With the talent on this team we should be steamrolling everyone.
