The 2011/12 Maple Leafs season is two days away against our arch rivals the Montreal Canadiens, the Buds will be looking to make the post season for the first time since the lockout. The club is one of only two clubs to have failed to do so (Florida Panthers the other) and will be looking to charge into the post season. Can the club score enough goals? Will the penalty kill finally stop something? What will the goaltending look like?
These are all major questions and some that the club, the fans and the media are already asking and we have not even dropped the puck yet. Well Leafs Nation lets take a look at 20 Insane predictions for the Maple Leafs 2011/12 season.

The NHL season is upon us Leafs Nation and the Toronto Maple Leafs made their final cuts today sending Keith Aulie and Mike Zigomanis to the AHL Marlies, while placing Darryl Boyce, Joey Crabb and Matt Lashoff on waivers as the October 6 home opener against the Habs inches closer.
There were a few surprises with the club as rookie defensemen Jake Gardiner and Jay Rosehill both stuck with the big club over Aulie and Boyce, while rookie forward Matt Frattin also is sticking with the big club as Nazem Kadri is out with an injury for 3 to 4 weeks. The Leafs opening night team will look like this.
