After 20 games, GM Kyle Dubas held a press conference to discuss the state of the team. The team’s record at the time was 9-7-4, meaning the Leafs had lost more than they had won by that point.
Through those 20 games, the club didn’t have a single impressive regulation win. For reference, here are the opponents they’ve beaten after 60 minutes of play this season:
- San Jose (playing on the second night of a back to back)
That’s it. That’s the list.
There have been some injuries of note, an adjustment period to two new assistant coaches, and a number of new players getting acquainted with the team and even the league.
