Leafs loading up for future

Hey Peeps and anyone else checking in. A special "Hey" goes out to Hazel Mae.

While many in the media and in Leaf Nation predicted that new President and GM Brian Burke would introduce himself to Toronto with a flurry of trades to rid the Maple Leafs of "soft" Europeans, Burke has surprised the Nation by sitting back and evaluating the team first.

Burke, no doubt with an eye on the future, has been loading up...the front office. The Maple Leafs announced the Burke's best friend, Dave Nonis, has joined the front office as Senior VP of Hockey Operations. Burke's team is up to five, with Cliff Fletcher staying on in an advisory role and Joe Nieuwendyk, Al Coates and Jeff Jackson remaining with the organization - while we would never assume that Burke was copying anyone, it sure looks like he is looking at the Red Wings management team as he moves forward in rebuilding Hazel's beloved Leafs

The future looks bright - even if the present kind of sucks.

Tough week last week, 1-2, meaning the total (for those of you playing along) is down to + $ is about time we go 3-0. Today's suggestions:

TENNESSEE - 14 over Cleveland - hard to see the Browns scoring any points today, the Titans are the play today. Lay $200 on Tennessee minus the points.

CHICAGO - 6.5 over Jacksonville - the Jags have packed it in the for season, expect the Bears to ram the ball down their throats with Matt Forte today. Lay $100 on the Bears.

NY GIANTS - 6.5 over Philadelphia - big game for the Eagles, which means McNabb will be terrible - Giants won't have Burress, but they'll still run the Eagles into the ground today. Lay $100 on the Giants and kiss those counterfeit Eagles GOODBYE.

That's it for this morning gang - thanks for taking the time to check in. Back later for the 4 pm games.

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

I'm Out.
