Friedman: Soft Teams Do Not Win In The NHL

The insider noted that the Leafs do, in fact, seem to be a soft team. He even went so far as to say that those kinds of team typically do not win in the NHL. This is particularly notable with the Leafs as they have had almost no playoff success whatsoever in recent years despite strong regular season performances. Of course it only becomes harder to win in the playoffs, so perhaps that is when the softness gets exposed the most.

Regardless, the Leafs need to figure things out quickly. Joseph Woll is not going to bail them out all season. Even when their star players perform well the team loses. Something in Toronto has to give.
