The Toronto Maple Leafs have had a terrible start to the season.
The Toronto Maple Leafs have a record of two wins and five losses through seven games, which is really bad. However, it’s not so bad when you realize that the best trait of this team is their attack, and the reason they lose is that they can not score goals.
If the team struggled because they could not defend, or because they had an obvious mistake that was exploited, I would be worried.
But they are not, and they are not, so it’s just luck that absolutely no one should worry about. It’s a bit of a shame, because we would all have loved a high-flying start to the season, but it really does not matter. Eventually, this team will go on a huge winning streak and get back in the race for the division title.
They enter the playoffs and compete for the Stanley Cup. It’s a given. So do not worry too much about things you can not control, especially when that thing is shot percentage and the guy who shoots the puck can not even control it.
So with that fact established, let’s check out the ten worst things people have attributed this bad start to. Note that none of these are invented.
