I think the leafs have one more year outside the playoffs before things start to turn around.

Spring and the Maple Tease are out

The Leafs are like that girl in high school. You know the one. You had a name for her.

Rhymes with hawk tease.

And what a tease. She tossed her curls, undid her top button, flashed a little thigh, wiggled a little tush then flounced off, giggling.

Drove us nuts. And speaking of blue testicles...

The Leafs are pushing their playoff mirage to the hilt. The annual Maple Tease.

The hard truth: If they win all their games, the Rangers and Sabres lose all theirs, the Hurricanes tank, the Montreal Maroons come back from the dead, the swallows take a pass on Capistrano, someone finds Amelia Earhart alive, and God comes down to play centre...then the Leafs are in the playoffs.

That has not happened since the spring of 2004 and is damn unlikely now.

But, theyve had faux playoff races nearly every year since the 2004-05 lockout.

In that stretch, theyre a combined 60-44-9 in March and April, excluding Thursdays game.

I counted it up twice, in disbelief. And they never once made the post-season?!

Play at that clip all year, and youre in the thick of it _ instead of clawing up from the basement after Christmas because you started 1-9.

Same old crap, says Joe Robb, 31, the Waffle Guy, who is banned for life from the Air Canada Centre for using Eggos to express his ire.

Every year, we think theyre getting better at the end, and theyre not. Its just a smokescreen.

And we reward them by getting all excited. What are we rewarding them for, not making the playoffs?

Youre right, Waffle Guy. The Maple Tease is fun the first time, like the first bat of that high school sirens eyes.

But by the time your palms are sweaty, your ties askew, you cant sleep, and youve wasted your paycheque on flowers and chocolates...youre feeling kind of used.

Thats where were at. So I get letters of anger and anguish. I get one from Lawrence Berk, 54, whose greatest passion after my family has always been as a Leafs fan.

Ah, the passion and the fury.

Montreal, Detroit, Philadelphia come to mind, to name a few, as cities whose hockey teams would have cleaned house long ago if they were even remotely playing the way the Leafs have for more than 40 years.

Well, GM Brian Burke and coach Ron Wilson are back next year, so....

I dont see anything changing, says the Waffle Guy. Especially if James Reimer isnt the real, real deal.

But whats with this Maple Tease?

The obvious answer is the Leafs play well in March because they have nothing to lose. Pressures off.

And we lap it up like puppies, were so desperate to love our team.

This is our only hockey of importance, says Matteo Codispoti, 39, whose fan movement, wewantacup.com, I told you about in February.

This is our playoffs? says Matteo.

All of a sudden, they give us 10, 15 great games and the city falls in love again, theres energy, kids know who all the players are, theres street hockey.

So Codispotis group has postponed pickets at the ACC we dont want to come across as haters until next fall, the Leafs traditional swoon season.

Meantime, I guess we settle. Its hard not to, when I see forward Clarke MacArthurs call to action as reported by our Rob Longley:

Be a team where you are fighting to get to fifth or sixth place rather than trying to sneak in.

Fifth or sixth? Hell, we want guys fighting to get to Number 1. If fifth or sixth happens, fine, well take it, grudgingly.

But, please, no more Maple Tease.

Time to put out. Go all the way. At least get to third base. Speaking of which...
...

the Blue Jays open Friday night at Rogers Centre.

Let them mess with our heads for while.

It's all dependent now on buffalo and carolina. carolina can win just 1 game and tie and then bufalo must lose them all. Of course leafs have to win them all lol.

Montreal winning or losing tonight has no impact on the leafs.

Honestly, I would rather see Montreal make a run at it like last year then get swept in the first round.
