When I was a kid, I delivered the newspaper to Rick Vaive, though it never occurred to me that it was a "job". I met Nikolai Borschevsky once in 1996. I got his autograph and asked him if he was still playing. He looked at me like I was crazy and then he said "yes". Then I looked at him like he was crazy. He actually won the Russian scoring title with Spartak in 96-97. Who knew?

Airing of Grievances - Bob Cole

There's always going to be controversy and a little bit of adversity playing here but I think guys have to be held accountable... Maybe that's a big reason why we haven't had success in the last few years or so, maybe the guys haven't been held accountable. So, hopefully, I'll be part of things to come here in the future and if I'm held accountable at an early age, it'll make me stronger down the road.

Pretty cool video worth sharing. Nice camera angle. The sound is a bit loud so watch the volume. Better yet, turn the sound off completely and put on Chariots Of Fire or Eye Of The Tiger. Way to go, CUJO!

Wilson, of course, doesn't have to worry about the wrath of the fans because management did such a great job selling the idea of a long, slow rebuild. Maurice's smile grew a little tighter. "I wish for Ron the very best," he said. "Good luck to him. You can build as long as you want there."

Wow. From the Globe. We have to win this game. We just have to. I won't be able to stand Paul Maurice's smug, snarky, smirky, dry, dry - sand in the desert dry - humour if we don't.

Christmas Contest: Live From Leaf Nation, It's Saturday Night!

This is going to feel like a long weekend, but not in a good way. I'm very happy with the way the Leafs played last night in Buffalo, and while I don't normally want them to play on back-to-back...

Forward Alexei Ponikarovsky missed Monday’s practice. "I was going to tell you we traded him and you guys would go running," Wilson told a clutch of reporters. "But his wife had a baby at 3 a.m. last night. So, obviously, I excused him and congratulated him and he’ll be in the lineup tomorrow." Was it a boy or a girl? "He had a boy," Wilson said. "He named him Ron."

It's a Poni-boy! Congratulations to Alexei Ponikarovsky, and to, uh, Coach Ron Wilson, I guess. Good call, Alexei.

Did anybody in Vancouver get a similar letter?

An open letter from Mats Sundin to the city of Toronto, and to the fans of the Toronto Maple Leafs, for whom he cares so deeply:

This is a video that takes a close-up look at Mats Sundin's thought process with a graphic illustration of what's going on inside his head. The ping-pong ball represents his decision making abilities, while the guy in Red represents his desire to control his own destiny, either to leave the game or to come back and keep playing. The guy in Blue represents the Leafs - entertaining the fans with no idea how to actually win. I'm sorry. I miss hockey so much.

Gary Bettman's Suggestions To Improve The NHL

  1. Immediate expansion into Europe with an eye on Japan and China
  2. Increase obstruction/interference calls. Eye-contact between opposing players should result in coincidental minors
  3. One shot per team in each shoot-out will be "judged" and awarded a point based on "brilliance and immagination", resulting in 4, or even 5-point games
  4. No blue-lines, 3-on-3 overtime, and 2 basketballs instead of a hockey puck
  5. get a different commissioner

Okay, y'know about Todd Gill, but what about this?

How weird is that? The Todd Gill thing is odd, but this is another level entirely. Try, spooky.

This is a long clip, but it's really good. Two great Todd Gill goals, but you'll have to wait for them. The number 2(3:30) and number 1(4:35) "moments" of the '93 regular season. Todd Gill is awesome. All heart. No talent, but all heart.

This is a highlight package worth watching. Wendel and the Leafs at their best. From 1993-94, when they went 10-0 to start the season. I believe these 2 games come from Feb. 28/94 and March 4/94
