First Stop: Local Domination

Don’t look now, but those Toronto Maple Leafs—the team left for dead about a month ago—are within two points of a playoff spot (of course, they’re tied with five teams, but that’s parity). All of this happened despite having a horrific goals-against and an ungodly 70% penalty kill rate. Part of this coincides with the arrival of Phil Kessel, but part of this seems to follow a pattern Ron Wilson had when he first arrived in San Jose.

Noted Sharks fan and Ron Wilson expert Mike Chen offers his thoughts on the Leafs' recent surge.

One of the things that we got to do was play Bingo with the kids. I don’t think I’ve played Bingo since second or third grade, so it was fun to get back to being a kid, being around all the toys, seeing the innocence in the kids and seeing how much fun they had.

Christian Hanson kicks off his new blog by talking about his visit to Sick Kid's. Hopefully he keeps it going and doesn't get traded or released (all three fates suffered by TFC bloggers)

This can only be termed the cartoon recreation of Jim Carey Price's reaction to the news that the Montreal Canadiens have been sold to the Molson family. Glove tap to Chris Boyle for the picture.

I was sitting next to Pierre in our TSN studio above the draft floor. As each team passed on Zach, Pierre’s anxiety was building. He just didn’t understand a pick he felt for a few teams should have been obvious. As for the Islanders, it was really bad timing - because of his father being J.P., because of the skill, because he seemed to land in the Islanders’ lap. I tell you, it was like Mount Vesuvius with Pierre. What I remember most is you at the bottom of the platform playfully pleading with Gord Miller to try to get Pierre to calm down. "Stop! Alright already"!

Chris Botta relays Bob McKenzie's tale about how Pierre McGuire has no concept of restraint, tact, or when to shut the hell up.

CBC's closing montage of the playoffs. Not shown: the fan behind one of the goals last night that was wearing a Toronto Maple Leafs jersey. Things like that make it tough on all of us. Unless it was a Hal Gill jersey and then it's doubly great.

5 Ways to Save the NHL

+
  1. Contraction/Relocation - Some teams just are not going to make it. Florida, Atlanta, Nashville, Tampa Bay, and the Islanders can get either axed or moved. "Give them a good team and they'll support it!" will say the whiners. Well, part of having a club is supporting it in the downtimes. Just ask us.
  2. Home Whites - Seriously, what a terrible idea by the league.
  3. Throwback Jerseys - Stop using them to make more money from fans and use them as their permanent jerseys. Wait, should I call them sweaters?
  4. No More Shootout - And not just because the Leafs suck at it. Why should teams make the playoffs because they have players that are better at breakaways than another team's? Dammit I hate Bettman.
  5. Divisional Playoffs - You know why Leafs and sens fans hate each other? Because of playoff meetings. Not six regular season games in three weeks.

I sit and wonder, why hasn't (Toronto's) hockey team won anything? Why hasn't the baseball team been successful lately? Because I'm coming from the outside and I don't know if you guys get your heads together cause you don't like writing nice things. ... You just want to write sh--. And I'm wondering if it's a knock-on effect to all the other sports. Does Toronto want their teams to be successful? I'm asking you.

TFC coach John Carver rails against the city's terrible sportswriting.

I came across this job posting on the Battle of Ontario site. I think maybe we should get our resumes ready. The qualifications don't seem so tough to meet.
