Toronto Maple Leafs: A Hatred of Other Teams, or Possible Self-Loathing?

March 4th, 2010 by Louis Pisano Leave a reply »

The Toronto faithful haven’t had much to cheer about for 20 or so years now, and the hatred has grown in their hearts for divisional arch rivals such as Montreal, Buffalo, and Ottawa.


Do we hate them because they’ve had success? Yes!


Do we hate them because they continually finish higher than us in the standings each year? Yes!


Do we hate them because they've had good young prospects and we’ve had mostly barren cupboards or traded off our youth? Yes!


Do we hate them mostly because we hate our own product on the ice and our past brass and their decisions? I say yes!
