Thanks for the tip there guy

Hey Peeps and anyone else checking in. A special "Hey" goes out to Hazel Mae if she is checking in (wearing black I would assume).

A day of mourning for Leaf Nation today, last night's 5-4 loss to the Islanders was pretty much the last nail in the coffin of this year's Toronto Maple Leafs.

The media in Toronto will undoubtedly be calling for Cliff Fletcher to pull the plug on this team and start moving some bodies - Mats Sundin being the prime target. For those of you who don't recognize the man on the left - that is former Leafs GM John Ferguson Jr., the architect of the mess known as the 2007/2008 Toronto Maple Leafs. When JFJ was fired, some donkey (Damien Cox) in the Toronto media wrote about how JFJ was a very good hockey man who would be a hot commodity. Well, he was right (sort of I guess) - JFJ is doing some scouting for Hockey Canada and was snapped up quickly by Canada's Sports Leader TSN to provide analysis and insight heading into the trade deadline.

Another reason why TSN is an absolute joke - it wasn't enough to have one of the worst-ever GM's in the NHL on their hockey "experts" panel, Mike Milbury, now they add JFJ who is famous for trading away first round picks for veterans on their last legs. By all accounts, JFJ, is a stand-up guy - his character won't be questioned here, but as a member of Leaf Nation I had to laugh reading JFJ's views on the status of the organization. The story is here.

For those of you who couldn't be bothered reading it - all you need to know is that he ACTUALLY had the stones to say if he was still in charge, there would be a for sale at the ACC. Ya, thanks champ - Leaf Nation has been through five of your "garage sales" - your acquisitions of the likes of Glen Wesley, Ron Francis, Owen Nolan, Yanic Perreault were enough to show us that you were NOT the guy for the job...EVER.

Back later with more (through the good graces of my man Tilt's work internet connection).

Hazel, here's hoping things are groovy in your world.

I'm Out!
