Points are awarded for each game, where two points are awarded for a win, one point for losing in overtime or a shootout, and zero points for a loss in regulation. Among major professional sports leagues, the NHL is the only one to award a team points for losing in overtime.

yeah, that one personified the season, and was maybe the 2nd worst 'hop' in NHL history...i remember watching the clock tick as they came back up the ice, remarkable:

YouTube- Ales Hemsky - Stefan


good one, Yuri! regardless of my 'turnaround' predication, i think they'd need about 90 to 95 points to slide in this year, not...most of their losses have actually been decent games, eh

btw, another moving Remembrance Day tribute on Coach's Corner...portraits of the fallen while the Maple Leaf Forever resonated on bagpipes...needed a wet glass of water following that

Toronto played like a winning team last night. The Montreal Canadiens are fast becoming the new Leafs if they dont turn things around.

Yes Don Cherry had another moving Remembrance Day tribute. Grapes is a good Canadian, I never miss Coach's Corner. And on the first part about vicious hit from behind; (head in the boards), it won't stop until someone gets killed. (IMO)

Women hockey is so enjoyable to watch !

Maple Leafs most valuable NHL team for fourth straight year
By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS (CP) – 20 hours ago

NEW YORK — For the fourth straight year, the Toronto Maple Leafs are the NHL's most valuable team, according to Forbes magazine's annual survey.

The Leafs are worth US$470 million, an increase of five per cent over last year. They easily are worth more than the next franchise, the New York Rangers at $416 million, up just one per cent.

The original six franchises are in the top seven, with only Philadelphia at No. 5 breaking that monopoly. Montreal is third ($339 million), followed by Detroit ($337 million), Philadelphia ($273 million), Boston ($271 million) and Chicago ($258 million).

The Vancouver Canucks ($239 million) were the next highest Canadian team coming in at ninth. Calgary ($200 million) was 16th; Ottawa ($197) 17th; and Edmonton ($166 million) - the lowest-valued Canadian team - at 24th.

Chicago has the biggest rise in value, up 26 per cent, followed by Washington at 15 per cent to $183 million.

The Stanley Cup champion Pittsburgh Penguins rank 11th at $222 million.

The average value of the 30 teams is $223 million, a slight increase over the $220 million of 2008.

Not surprisingly, the Phoenix Coyotes, with all their ownership issues, have the lowest worth, $138 million. And 14 teams - nearly half the league - went down in value, ranging from Colorado decreasing by 11 per cent to Philadelphia falling one per cent.

Toronto has, by far, the most operating income, $78.9 million, Forbes reported. Second in operating income is Montreal at $31.3 million.

The Leafs are tops in revenues, too, at $168 million, followed by the Rangers at $139 million.

Just another attempt to solicit predicators (I learned a lot from the 'Great Spam Scare' of '09). Just make a guess........the Leafs have scored 14 points in 21 games.... 82 games to a season.

Leafs losing games at record rate
But have they lost hope?

By Rob Longley, Sun Media

Last Updated: 21st November 2009, 11:00am
They are losing games at a rapid rate and every way imaginable, but have the futile Maple Leafs also lost hope?

For now, what you see is what you get as management has no immediate fix for this frustrating and forlorn season.

For tonight anyway, the group that has bumbled through the first 20 games and is on pace to being one of the worst editions in franchise history will be left to rescue themselves against a league powerhouse.

There is little hope for the present, with management unable or unwilling to pull the trigger until it decides there is no alternative other than putting an underachieving veteran on waivers.

Worse still for hostile Leafs fans, it’s becoming increasingly difficult to keep faith in the future given the steep price in draft picks it cost to acquire Phil Kessel, who at least is one of the few bright spots on the last-place team.

”We seem to have hopefully hit bottom,” Leafs forward Jamal Mayers said after yesterday’s tense practice at the Mastercard Centre. “There’s a feeling of disgust that this could happen.

“It’s not acceptable. There’s no other way to paint it. There are no moral victories.”

There aren’t many of the other kind, either, as the playoffs are quickly skidding from pipe dream to statistical improbability.

With a current losing streak that hit five games on Thursday, the Leafs have won three times and are on pace for just 49 points. Mathematically, that would match the 48 points accumulated in 80 games by the 1984-85 team as the worst in club history.

While number crunching has become a blood sport for irate followers of the morose franchise, it carries some weight given the season will be more than a quarter done after tonight’s clash at the Air Canada Centre with the Eastern Conference leading Washington Capitals.

While few might expect the current pace to last, raise your hands if you would have guessed there would be just three wins at this point?

Not since the 1999-2000 Atlanta Thrashers rang up 39 points (with just 14 wins) has an NHL team been so putrid. Nowhere close, in fact.

How low can it go? If the Leafs do indeed finish with 49 points, they would be 45 or so out of a playoff spot./p>

Meanwhile, by all accounts, the flight home Thursday night from Carolina was a miserable one, with “a fair number of expletives” as one player put it yesterday.

You can argue that the Leafs were robbed in the 6-5 shootout loss to the ‘Canes - allowing a goal with three seconds left to force overtime plus the phantom four-minute penalty to Ian White earlier in the third period. But the reality is the Leafs squandered three and two-goal leads.

“I don’t think it’s right to let it roll off your back,” Leafs forward Lee Stempniak said yesterday. “Losses matter and they’re hard to swallow. You’ve got to hate losing.”

No one finds it more revolting than Leafs general manager Brian Burke, who less than a year into his tenure is taking his lumps these days.

But until Burke is convinced someone on the Marlies would seriously help or that a veteran has no more hope and thus can be waived, what can he do?

“It would give us a boost, but because we are kind of limited, we can’t send anybody down,” Wilson said.

For now. If the losing lasts much longer there will be no choice, something both Burke and Wilson willingly acknowledge.

“We have three wins in 20 games,” Wilson said of one of the roughest extended periods of his coaching career. “It’s not fun, I can tell you that.”

David was in his 5th grade class when the teacher asked the
children what their fathers did for a living.
All the typical answers came up - fireman, policeman, salesman, etc.
David was being uncharacteristically quiet and so the teacher asked
him about his father. 'My father's an exotic dancer in a gay bar and
takes off all his clothes in front of other men.
?Sometimes, if the offer's really good, he'll go out to the alley with
some guy and make love with him for money.'

The teacher, obviously shaken by this statement, hurriedly set the
other children to work on some colouring, and took little David aside to
ask him, 'Is that really true about your father?'

'No,' said David, 'He plays for the Toronto Maple Leafs but I was
too embarrassed to say that in front of the other kids.'

What a disappointing level of participation. Even Jesse Joe decided to protest rather than predicate.

Oh well.......

It seems only fitting that the sole non-Canadian predicator should be the first one eliminated.

Good luck to those still standing.

ps. no prizes

Just bringing this to its conclusion :

jj is the winner. With 3 games to play, the Leafs' point total will fall in the range he selected.

It's only fitting........he originated predicating.
