Predictions for NHL 2009-10 season

Toronto_Maple_Leafs2[1]Well a new NHL season is almost here and this season I will once again be cheering my Toronto Maple Leafs on to victory.

Last year was not too much fun as I admit I was part of Tank Nation, cheering for the team to get a high draft pick rather than wanting them to win. That was the only season since I started being a hockey fan in 1970 that I was not cheering for Leafs wins.
I am really impressed by the turn around ever since JFJ was let go.

Brian Burke is the perfect person to turn the clubs fortunes around, and the changes so far have been great.

Signing the college boys along with the Monster as free agents I beleaf (sp intended) will give the Leafs a big edge this season and in the future and that allowed the team to be able to afford to give up draft picks for Kessel.

Leafspace.com asked for us Leaf fans to make a few predictions so here are mine in a nutshell

1. Leafs will finish 7th in the East
