It's okay to lose to Buffalo, it's not the end of the world. Acquire a goalie, maybe a depth D, and you'll be fine. Goalies will never perform well in Toronto, and I 110% blame that solely on the media and fanbase.

As a Hawks fan (ignoring the trade), why would you ever want to get rid of Nylander? His contract is probably the most team-friendly one the Leafs have.

How is it the medias fault when Mrazek letting in goals from the corner

Goalies are some of the most mental individuals, we've seen Holtby, Hellebuyck, and others create their own individual pregame ritual where they predict the saves they make and how the game will go. If their mental is off, they're doomed. Mrazek had a couple bad games, media started writing on it, he had a few more bad games. Look at Campbell, same thing happened to him, now he's hurt. We can't sit here and pretend they don't read what the media says. Hell, they're answering questions about their performance after every game! It's a different beast in Toronto, look at how well Andersen is playing in Carolina. They flipped spots and they also flipped their performances.

Andersen wouldn't be playing this well if he was still in TOR, and Mrazek wouldn't be playing this poorly if he was still in CAR. Reimer left CAR for a worse team in SJ, and he's still putting up much better numbers than Mrazek.

Need a cultural reset here in Toronto . Nylander plays with no sense of urgency and too non Cholant. Granted he is a talented player but we need to inject some passion and grit. I’m afraid it’s the price we would have to pay to pull Fleury and Hagel.

Because everyone is acting like the sky is falling when the goaltending can at a minimum be somewhat addressed come the deadline. Goaltending is one of the least predictable parts of the game and while granted Mrazek is a dumpster fire and the Leafs have had below .900 goaltending for 75% of this season, the team is still just a win away from 5th in the NHL. If they pick up .900 goaltending for like 5 games they can start to get rolling and then its anyone game.

This team has flaws but so do a lot of others. All they need is something to break their way and if you actually believe its impossible for that to happen then why be a fan in the first place
