This year’s Toronto Maple Leafs team has the chance to achieve greatness. For some players, it could be the best of their career. The team as a whole has proven that they can beat some of the other top teams in the NHL.

Of course, the Toronto Maple Leafs are not going to win every game and they will lose some ugly ones. Every team goes through that and it’s not that big of a deal when you look at the season as a whole. The Leafs have won 20 of their last 26 games.

Winning is great and it always sucks to lose, but when a team wins as often as Toronto does, each loss hurts just a little bit more. The good news is, Toronto hasn’t made losing a habit this season. They have been able to shrug off loses and bounce back the next game.

This team has an unbelievable amount of talent and I know many fans who don’t care about a player’s regular season achievements if they don’t end up winning a playoff round. To that I say, regular season stats do matter, and we should enjoy what these players do.

There are currently seven players on the Toronto Maple Leafs roster who are on pace for an amazing season. I think we should be able to sit back and watch these amazing achievements unfold before our very eyes.
