Maple Leafs coach Sheldon Keefe said the lamest thing after Game 7 loss and NHL fans ripped him

The Toronto Maple Leafs had their season come to an end once again in the first round of the playoffs last night as they lost to the Tampa Bay Lightning 3-2 at home in yet another Game 7.

The Leafs, who were roasted by fans after the loss, blew a 3-2 series lead against the NHL’s defending champs and haven’t gotten out of the first round since 2004.

Brutal times once again for the Leafs and their fans.

After the loss Toronto coach Sheldon Keefe had a really lame take on his team and the handshake line, saying:

“We got a lot of respect in that (handshake) line from that team, which is nice to see. It was a much different tone and much different feeling of respect from the other side from what we’ve experienced previously. We’re certainly earning respect in the league but, again, we’re not in the respect game. We’re in the winning game.”

Seriously, he said that:

I guess that’s a positive to take away from another season-ending loss?

I dunno, man, that sounds pretty lame to me.

Twitter had reactions.
