March 16th - Book It

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

Another battle of Ontario last night - Leafs win 2-1, SenaTards again are hiding behind excuse that a bunch of their guys had the flu. Funny, going into the game - their was no way the Leafs and their "AHL Roster" could beat the Tards.

The win was secondary - SenaTards resident punk Chris Neil was at his predatory best again last night. In what has become all too familiar with this guy - another predatory head shot on a guy who didn't see him coming.

As is usually the case, Neil wouldn't answer later in the game when Leafs tough guy Coulton Orr came looking for him.

Leafs come back to Ottawa on March 16th - Neil is going to get a beatdown that night...count on it. A picture of what is in store for Neil on the 16th.

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

Calculate this!

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

You may be asking yourself - why is a member of Leaf Nation posting a picture of Bruins GM Peter Chiarelli? Well, I guess congratulations are in order for Mr. Chiarelli - if you want to know, just ask him. Before Thursday night's game between the Leafs and Bruins - Chiarelli was on Toronto radio talking about the Bruins - and of course, his favourite topic these days, the Bruins trade with Toronto that saw Phil Kessel move north for two first round draft picks (2010 and 2011) and a second round pick (2010).

Chiarelli took a bit of a shot at Brian Burke and Leaf Nation saying- "we calculated that the trade would give us at least a top 10 pick" and something to the effect that anything better would be gravy. Some (read Bruins fans) may think there was nothing wrong with what their GM said - however, it was a classless act sharing with the media that you thought another team would be horrible going into the season. As an aside - how do you "calculate" how a team is going to finish?

When Brian Burke is asked about the trade - he says he would do it again and hopes it works out for the Bruins. Whether he means it or not is not the point - Burke, unlike the former SenaTard, would never through a colleague under the bus or mock his team.

Laugh it up Pete - you too Bruins fans...remember, this is a guy who spent years as part of the SenaTards brain trust...their history of drafting hasn't been great. You will probably get a lottery pick - enjoy. Some of us aren't as gracious as our GM - we hope you draft the next Alexandre Daigle. You may draft Taylor Hall and he may be great - but playing for the Bruins...two words - Joe Thornton.

The question Leaf Nation has for Chiarelli - while you were busy "calculating" where we would finish - should you not have been "calculating" your own damn salary cap? You are the proud owner of the worst contract in the NHL - the one immovable contract - Tim Thomas. The Bruins will be in salary cap hell for a few years - enjoy a few more years of Tim Thomas and his $5 million/year contract. Or maybe

Michael Ryder - $4 million in 2010/11

Dennis Wideman - $3.9 + through 2011/12

David Krejci - $3.750 through 2011/12

Good luck filling out that roster next year guys - you'll have your own lottery pick next year.

To my anonymous reader who lambasted me for a blog entry about how the Bruins were doomed under Chiarelli - still laughing? or are you know seeing "just how wrong you were"? (remember those words buddy?)

One more thing on Thursday night's game - while we lost in a was truly spectacular to watch Milan Lucic get dusted by Coulton Orr, knocked on his ass twice by Dion Phaneuf, and miss an open net. LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOUUUUUCH - meh.

Song of the night on Hazelspeeps - for Peter Chiarelli

Loser - Beck

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

I'm out.

Spring is in the air

Hey Peeps and anyone else checking in. A special "Hey" goes out to Hazel Mae who is ushering in spring for all of us.

Yours truly, and all of Leaf Nation (which we still count Hazel as a member in good standing), can't wait for baseball season to start - the 2009/2010 season hasn't been good to the Nation...but we still believe in Brian Burke. While many will be complaining that Burke didn't trade Leafs D Tomas Kaberle - some of us think he was right to hold on to him. A quiet trade deadline day for the Leafs - 43 years and counting.

So to those of us who say GO DODGERS...or Blue Jays (ugh - it is going to be a long summer for peeps in Toronto)...I leave you with this, as a sign that spring is in the air.

That's it for tonight.

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

I'm Out!
