Toronto Maple Leafs New Years Resolutions: Turning Over a New Leaf

January 2nd, 2010 by Jon Neely Leave a reply »

Yes, 2009 was certainly an interesting year for the Toronto Maple Leafs, and one that, while having some positive aspects to it, will mostly be happily forgotten by many in Leaf Nation.

This season started off terribly, and the team has been playing catch-up ever since. But with 2010 rolling in, it is finally time for the Leafs and their fans to forget about what happened in the past. This year is all about getting better and aiming higher; it's all about the now.

On the morning of Jan. 1, 2010, the Leafs found themselves sitting five points out of the eighth and final playoff spot with exactly 41 games to go in the regular season. With the team showing at times they can put together a string of wins and play strong, smart hockey, the goal for the rest of the way should be to have a spot in the postseason when it's all said and done.

For each and every one of the players on the Leafs, they need to take the changing of the calendar as a second chance to make this 2009-2010 campaign count for something.
