At this point in the season, we should be talking about how Phil Kessel is closing in on 40 goals and has thrown his name into the mix for the Hart Trophy. We should be debating whether Jonathan Bernier’s numbers are good enough for a Vezina Trophy nomination and how James van Riemsdyk, Nazem Kadri, Morgan...

After watching the first period of the St. Louis game, I realized that goal tending is not the problem plaguing the Toronto Maple Leafs.   It is the team’s lack luster performance.
