Toronto Maple Leafs: Tampa Making the Final Is Not Reassuring

Some people may, in the next few days, paint a story that the Toronto Maple Leafs should be reassured by Tampa making the Stanley Cup Final.

That should absolutely not be the case. Just because the Toronto Maple Leafs are the only team to take them to seven games, doesn’t mean we should be proud.

The only possible reason to be proud would’ve been defeating them in the first round and preventing any chance of a three-peat.

[Editor’s Note: Technically the Leafs are the only team to beat them in a playoff round, it’s just that one of the games didn’t count].
