Yep, that's right, since the Flyers came into existence, they are leading the Leafs in Stanley Cup wins 2-0. Of course, if more recent history is what suits you, last year's series was a great Flyers victory.

Originally posted by BigVitoMarkSpoken with the ignorance of a true Leafs fan
I've only been a Leafs fan for a couple of years since the time that I lived in Ontario and adopted them (I've since moved back south but have retained the Leafs the same way Walter Sobchak retained his Judaism*). But my point is this: I've seen the Leafs have contending teams this whole time and even *I* know better than to say right now they're taking the Stanley Cup. Besides, how many times over the last 20 years in ANY sport has the best team at midseason been the best team in the postseason? It's happened, but not THAT often.
Even my GF at the time, who is a casual hockey fan at best said it best when she said the following, "They've had good teams the last few years but they always find a way to blow it in the playoffs"
*The Dude: "Man, you're fucking Polish Catholic..." Walter: "What the fuck are you talking about? I converted when I married Cynthia! Come on, Dude!" The Dude: "Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah..." Walter: "And you know this!" The Dude: "Yeah, and five fucking years ago you were divorced." Walter: "So what are you saying? When you get divorced you turn in your library card? You get a new license? You stop being Jewish?"
