Ottawa coming off a below average pre-season with lots of question marks and yet when you read this you would think Rick Wamsley and four days off are all the team needs to hit their stride. That, folks, is how the media sees you when you have made the playoffs every season but one this millennium. Innocent until proven guilty.
Meanwhile, in Toronto, you get the impression from this story that no scarred writer will predict anything positive without covering their ass. The stars must align, every player must be 100% healthy and maybe, just maybe, they'll get into 8th. Talk about once bitten.
