It's fairly accurate.
I lived in Toronto (until just a couple of weeks ago) for seven years. I've seen some terrible things when it comes to their players. They're *really* hard on goalies.
Remember that fabulous season where they went to the playoffs, only to blow it in the third period of Game 7? That was the year the Bruins won the cup. Anyway, the following season, James Reimer was injured in a game against Montreal, and he was concussed. He missed quite a bit of time, and that was bad because a) his stellar play had a lot to do with them making the playoffs in the first place, and b ) he was off to a pretty good start. Anyway, in his first game back after missing quite a bit of time, he got the call to play against that same Bruins team in Boston. The Leafs were awful, and they got blown out 9-1. The next morning, I was pretty dismayed to see the cover of the Toronto Sun which featured a picture of 22 year old James Reimer in his first game back against the reigning Stanley Cup Champions on the road behind the worst team in the league, and a headline that read, "What a JOKE".
Pretty crappy market for the kids. It's nice to see that they've got a few good ones right now... I still hope they choke.
