Where will the Toronto Maple Leafs finish in the East this season?

Well the poll is closed and blog readers have spoken. A third of readers believe that the Maple Leafs will make the playoffs this season. Though I have to suspect a healthy number of these people are playing with us. Or they may just be delusional because 15% of voters picked them to finish first overall. Hey what can I say.

I consider the bottom 3 spots to be potential lottery picks for the right to draft John Tavares (who has 5 goals and 4 assists in his first 3 game with Oshawa this season). The worst 5 teams get a shot at Tavares and I expect 3 to come from the East. Well, over 50% of blog readers picked the Leafs to finish in the bottom 3.

Here are the results:

1st - 15.0%
2nd - 3.8%
3rd - 1.2%
4th - 2.5%
5th - 0%
6th - 0%
7th - 8.8%
8th - 3.8%
9th - 2.5%
10th - 3.8%
11th - 5.0%
12th - 3.8%
13th - 16.2%
14th - 7.5%
15th - 28.8%
