What are Leaf fans saying about the Ryan O’Reilly injury

I guess there is a good and bad to this. Good, it didn’t happen closer to the playoffs or in the playoffs. Bad, so much for finding his spot in the lineup. Gonna be interesting to see how long he is actually out for. At least it’s just a finger and not a hand or wrist.

As long as Ryan O’Reilly returns before game 1 of the playoffs, I don’t even care.

“ before the playoffs “, That’s all that matters. Go Leafs Go!
