Brooksy Bit Me I didn't see a playoff thread for today, so alas I posted it here. Saw the story regarding Avery and Laich and because Avery is a big baby, this sprung to mind and I took a study break to err pursue creative interests. Cheers.

I'm not sure if this was brought up on this site, but one of our favourite memes from the end of last year was injured in a vicious attack by Vityaz Chekov, a goon squad featuring Chris Simon, Josh Gratton, Antoine Verot, and Brandon Sugden. Not only do Verot and Gratton start pummelling people who have no interest in fighting, they continue to do even when the fight is clearly over. As a result, Martin Skoula has a broken orbital bone, and the goalie was concussed. This isn't the first time they've picked on Skoula (who had no fighting majors in his time in the NHL). Skoula Gets Jumped Many people mock Burkie for his comment about belligerence, truculence, pugnacity and testosterone. But at least the Leafs actually play hockey. May Skoula continue to inspire us towards victory!

NHL Guidelines wrt Salary Dumps

7

Fellow PPPers, I'm wondering if anyone has a handle on the NHL's guidelines regarding dumping salaries. I had thought that the NHL would not allow trades that are, objectively speaking, salary dumps, but I haven't heard a peep about the Sturm trade violating that, despite the fact that the Bruins essentially traded 3.5 million for nothing. The news release said Boston would receive "future considerations," but general manager Peter Chiarelli met with reporters and said: "Really, it’s nothing." "Keep in mind the value of cap space," Chiarelli said. "That’s what you have to keep in perspective. I’m not trying to justify trading for nothing. Of course we like to get return for our player." Not that the NHL has been consistent in knocking off cap circumvention deals in the past, but I just wondered if anyone else knew anything about it?

How much is Jeter worth?

3

I think we can all agree that 15 million for Derek Jeter is overpaid. But I generally don't pay much attention to standard salaries in baseball, so I was wondering what Jeter is actually worth? Additionally, I know many of the young, good SSs are underpaid because they're under control. In short, there are too many unknowns for someone with my limited knowledge to hazard a guess. So I figured I'd ask here instead of in the Yankees blog, because I love the Jays and I wanted a slightly more unbiased opinion. So, would a 36 year old free agent SS with Jeter's numbers command even 10 million/year...5 million/year...less? Edit: My guesstimate was around 5 mill or so.

I didn't see this posted anywhere, and while it's not Leafs related, it's kinda cute. Cheers.

Meet Wendel - Maple Leaf Trot

If there's anyone in Southwestern Ontario who still hasn't managed to meet Wendel (which is hard since he's everywhere), he's slated to be at Mohawk on July 24th. Autographs are free, so you can put away your 1st rounders. If you're keen on a good night of horse races slots, why not make it a night.

Stumpy

Here is the next installment of Leafs Heroes. Larger version available here I actually really like this one. I'm not sure why. Maybe it's the truculence factor. Maybe it's the fact that in my tween years, I really did think Thomas was tough (hey...185 seemed like a lot back then). It's a pity that in between his two stays with the Leafs, his best years were spent elsewhere. P.S. Sorry about the slight blurr. My batteries died after one shot.

Yushkie

So here's is the first actual picture from the calendar. Sorry about the picture quality! The lighting in my room was horrible, so I played around with the picture settings (and I know nothing about editing pictures), and while it looks better than it did, it's a bit too dark. The slight fuzziness is due to my shaky hands. I'll try to fix both problems when I take the next picture. I started with Yushkevich...because well...Yushkevich was awesome!

Calendar

To Kavel and loser_domi: I managed to acquire the calendar =D But as you can see, it's far too big for my poor little scanner to handle. I figured it'd be...you know....calendar sized...instead of like 10 * 16. =) So I'll have to grab my digital camera this or next weekend so I can actually get an entire page.

My Pet Monster So anyway, I made this a while back and planned to use it along with the caption "Gustavsson Gets Handcuffed". But what do you know. I was away in Windsor cooking food for my mom the first time Gustavsson got pulled. So instead, I'll just pretend I made it for Black Friday as a cute plushie that you can have for the low low price of 9.99. Quantities may be limited to zero. And yes, that was definitely one of the best TV shows of the 80s despite only having 13 episodes!

Creator's Note: This started with me wanting to put a monacle on a picture, realizing that you couldn't do transparencies with MS Paint, downloading another program and fiddling around with it to experiment.
