GDT: Watching is self-flagellation edition

In some versions of the Pandora's Box myth, the reason that hope remains is because hope is the greatest of all evils. Just food for thought as the season goes on.

Hmm, that's odd. The powerplay still isn't fixed.

That was the last power play goal of 2017.

Well there definitely was an improvement. It at the very least a treat to watch Karlsson skate again. He's been much, much better accelerating over the past 2 or 3 games. That late goal was like going to a titty bar: just wholesome entertainment for the family. Shortlived, but it was definitely entertaining. I think. It's been so long.
This could be the slump busting game, where they deserved better but still lost. After Senate's prophetic (although after 10 losses the prophecy perhaps isn't quite so impressive) OP I don't want to say there's hope, but there is a kind of feeling that is uplifting in spite of the misery and suffering we are inflicting upon ourselves.

Because I've watched these guys for the past few years, I really do believe that we could go on an unstoppable run, but this year's team has some GLARING holes in it.

Can't do these late games anymore.

Y'know what would almost make this season worthwhile is an utter collapse in January or February by the Leafs, as is tradition...

Whenever I think they are putting some good plays together, inevitably this happens:
