Mitch Marner's Post-Game Comments Spark Anger For Leafs Fans

The Toronto Maple Leafs have been in terrible form as of late, losing their past four games on the back of some blown leads, and now the fan base is especially angry at forward Mitch Marner.

Marner's interesting comments bring outrage from Leafs fans



Given those four straight losses and question marks both on the blue line and in net, questions are being asked about Toronto's potential to miss the playoffs this season.

While they've still got plenty of talent, the team just hasn't been playing well, and it makes Marner's post-game comments after the loss to the Edmonton Oilers even more intriguing.


«We're a great hockey team. And we gotta ignore what everyone else says. We know we're a great hockey team. We show up every night. I mean, this last four games that we've had leads, we've played some awesome hockey, some great hockey,» Marner said.


Troubling comments expose Leafs biggest issues



Sure, there's teams out there with little weaknesses that go through struggles, but Toronto aren't those teams, as they do have plenty of holes to fill, and perhaps the biggest of all is the Head Coach role.

Sheldon Keefe has been under plenty of scrutiny as of late, and those rumblings about his role in Toronto must be growing louder, so with this, the blue line issues and every goaltender seemingly struggling this season, the Maple Leafs season could be on life support soon unless things change.
