Sports Illustrated (that oracle of hockey expertise) has its Leafs preview up and they don't like the team one bit.
Specifically the Goalie is too old, the defense are a bunch of obstructionists that won't be able to adjust to the new rules and the forwards are slow and injury prone.
Why is this good news for Leafs fans? Because Sports Illustrated has consistently underrated the team in recent years. I seem to remember the year they went to the final four against Carolina SI rated them 15th in the league (behind LA whom they ranked 10th!).
