It is really easy to get on the Toronto Maple Leafs right now. For the fourth time in the last 11 years, they lost to the Boston Bruins at TD Garden in game seven.

They have won one playoff series in the last 20 years and have been one of the NHL's massive dissapointments during the Auston Matthews era.

On Monday, the Maple Leafs had a few press conferences that revealed a few things. One of them that is taking a lot of heat right now is Mitch Marner.

Marner didn't produce offense in the playoffs, he had a lazy effort in game seven on the David Pastrnak overtime winner, and now he is making terrible tone-deaf comments.

The Maple Leafs are so far away from being on top of the mountain

He was asked about playing in Toronto. He mentioned that he loves it which is nice but he may be gone this summer anyway if the Leafs decide to change things up.

He also said that they are "looked at sort of like Gods". That is as horrible of a comment as he could have made. There is nothing "God-like" about the Maple Leafs right now.

All of the top guys on the team have done nothing in the playoffs. That includes John Tavares, Auston Matthews, and William Nylander as well.

They are all either not healthy or don't produce when they are. This was not a smart thing for Marner to say, especially after losing in the playoffs yet again.

Now, the Leafs hit the road while the Boston Bruins move on to play the Florida Panthers. It is the same story with another year.

If Marner wants to "be looked at like a God of hockey" he should probably have more than three points in seven playoff games. Winning more than one round a decade may help as well. No matter where Marner plays next season, he needs to be smarter and better.
