I'm a life long Leaf fan that's temporarily moved to Montreal. I want the Leafs to win the Cup mostly to shut up everyone here.

"I think there’s got to be an argument (Carkner) is the toughest in the league, for sure" - Zenon Konopka, who has obviously been punched in the head too many times. If this quote doesn't warrant 15 minutes in the quiet room, I don't know what does.

Veteran Forwards for Kaberle

So, with Tomas Kaberle all but gone soon, I thought it'd be interesting to see what kind of forwards are out there, like him, with one season left until UFA.  The following list is far from...

Cormier, physically mature to the point he looked much older than his teammates, played well, staying out of the chippy trouble into which teammates like Stefan Della Rovere and Chris DiDomenico became immersed...... Canada struggled to keep its cool at various times during the tourney, with Cormier and Leaf prospect Nazem Kadri among the worst offenders.

Damien Cox is an idiot, part 37298 Gotta love how Damien always feels the need to bash the Leafs and their prospects in completely unrelated stories. DiDomenico was immersed in the chippy stuff, as evidence by his two minor penalties taken all tournament. Damn that Kadri for being among the worst offenders, what with 14 PIM all tourney. Wait, what? 12 of them were on one play for a hit to the head that most people agree was only called because it's in the IIHF rules? My God Damien needs to be blocked. Cox blocked if you will.

Finger the third worst FA signing of the decade?

31

Allan Muir once again proves he knows nothing at all about hockey, stating the signing of Finger was the third worst of the decade. Nary a mention of Redden, or Gomez, or Briere, or Drury, or Campbell or anyone else. Nope, Jeff Finger. He is obviously overpaid (by just a million?), but can be quite serviceable. Muir's an asshat.

Citing the need for more truculence, sources say the Leafs are close to trading their 2012 first-rounder for this unheralded European. (e4) Pic from here.

Leafs eliminated from playoffs

Well, it was a valiant effort this year boys, but the Star has spoken, and we all know how well they know their hockey. To the golf courses!

Schremp on Waivers

Would be nice to be able to take a flyer on someone like him, though there's no room for him on the big club. Should we try to pick him up in hopes that a new environment (and Ron Wilson) eliminates his defensive problems? If so, who would he push down the ladder? Part of me thinks we should pick him up, use him as the 13th forward (or sub-in 4th liner) until we know exactly what he can bring. Then either demote him (and risk losing him ourselves), or see if he develops into what he was supposed to once upon a time. I'd rather take a chance on him than say Mayers. Thoughts? Yay or nay?

The Rangers' Sean Avery won a settlement in his libel case against Toronto radio reporter Howard Berger following mediation earlier this month, Slap Shots has learned. The suit was brought in the aftermath of the pregame incident in Toronto on Nov. 10, 2007, after which Berger alleged that Avery had made comments to Jason Blake relating to the Leaf winger's previously diagnosed cancer. Terms of the settlement are confidential. Avery has at least one more pending suit relating to the incident.

Does this make anyone else smile?

Oh man this makes me laugh. Try to guess which of these are making the big bucks.

Toronto Maple Leafs' Top Prospects

This will probably be part of the FTB, but I'm up late and an eager beaver so here it is. Hockey Futures isn't always the most reliable, but what this does show is we are starting to get some organizational depth. The importance of that should not be underestimated. I look forward to seeing many of these guys in the lineup in years to come.

A sign of things to come?

While at least a good man won, I still think starving students like myself are more deserving. Though I'm too poor to play. Congrats Keith, hopefully that good luck rubs off on our team this year. Found via Kukla's.

Canadian Olympic Jerseys?

I gotta say, I like them. Especially considering all the hubbub regarding them in the past.

My apologies if this has already been discussed. Considering the company, let's hope not much hockey is discussed so that Poni doesn't pick up some pointers from King, May or Peters.

Montreal Canadiens are Red Stripe: They’re short, overpriced and don’t speak French either. Toronto Maple Leafs are Guinness: They’re slow and heavy, have a storied history, highly recognizable logo and are famous for their Irish head.

Sources also told Tedesco that George Gillett, the outgoing owner of the Montreal Canadiens, hammered Balsillie for telling a French-language newspaper in November of last year that the Canadiens were for sale, claiming that Balsillie's comments destabilized the franchise and directly contributed to Montreal's failure in the playoffs.

Q: What's the scariest thing you saw from a Flyers fan during your time in Philly? A: There was one guy who had a Mohawk and tattoos on the side of his head, and he changed his name -- legally -- to Flyer Eric. That's probably the scariest thing I think I've seen.

Go Flyers!

Joining Gilroy in his journey through minor hockey was his kid brother, Timmy. They grew up only a couple of blocks from the Nassau County Coliseum, the home of the New York Islanders. But the only player they knew was Wayne Gretzky. When it came time to sign up for numbers, the brothers both wanted No. 99. "That was the first one taken and we got to practice late that day. I went 98 and he (Timmy) went 97." But now No. 97 is the only number Gilroy will wear. That's because Timmy died at age 12, the result of a bicycle accident. "On the day he passed away, I promised mom I'd always wear his number," said Gilroy.

http://www.thestar.com/Sports/article/614777 I wonder if this will have any effect on the Leafs landing him, what with Burke's imposed "no numbers over 40" mandate.

Some strange, strange choices in there, including Kadri going 22nd? Just goes to show the NHL can't do anything right. Hat tip to Kukla's.

Now, with Martin Gerber having acted like a complete idiot over a goal that, in my opinion, was correctly counted as legal, Pogge gets another shot.

Is anyone at all surprised by who said this?

If Ron Wilson took a minute to think this over, he'd see the qualities he admires most in hockey players --tenacity, work ethic, intensity, edge, consistent job performance -- are the very same qualities Howard Berger brings in reporting on the Leafs for FAN 590

Damien Cox makes the case that Toronto Maple Leafs fans need to give Mats Sundin a standing ovation upon his return. "Those who accuse him of lying to the Leafs about his true intentions are fools. Those who would jeer him upon his return belong to the same category." How about this: Leafs fans set a deadline for cheering him, and then just keep delaying it until he leaves town?

Wyshynski still stinks, but I find that funny.

I know this isn't hockey related, but it IS sports related, and bacon related, and I want it, so I have posted it. And now I'm hungry. I cannot wait for someone to do this with a hockey arena.
