Team: 2019-20 Toronto Maple Leafs
Team Explanation
This is a PSA for some of you Leafs fans you there: RELAX.

I swear, y'all are the absolute worst for wanting to hit the eject button the second everything isn't going perfectly. Some of the trades I've seen this week alone have been mind blowingly bad.

Does the team have some issues? Yeah. So does almost every NHL squad. Welcome to the salary cap era. Your team has also had some injuries. Again, welcome to the NHL.

I could see some moves being made to add defensive depth, a grinder forward to add some grit come playoff time, or a backup goaltender. But sheesh, the way y'all act you'd think you just watched your team get dick-stomped 8-2 like I did last night.

Prayers for Detroit Fans.

Hopefully Larkin, Mantha, Seider, whoever gets drafted in the Top 5 (2020) and Cholo can help instill some hope for the future

Like your opening narrative.

One thing I've noticed over the years from Leaf fans, and then non Leaf fans catch the same allergy is as follows. When they don't like a player(s), who might be the least effective player on the team, they think by trading that player for a bottom end player from another team, that will solve all the Leaf problems.

I also find it funny how no one gives this team credit for weathering significant injuries this season. The list of guys who've missed time has been Hyman, Dermott, Tavares, Marner, Johnsson, Mikheyev, Moore, Muzzin and now Rielly. That is quite the list of good players getting hurt.

I take offense to that. Us Leaf fans are nothing if not consistent when it comes to absolutely terrible trade proposals.
