    Watching the 1984 Stanley Cup Finals on NHL Network right now. What an atmosphere in Edmonton. I hope fans get to waive sparklers again in the new arena.

    So happy that the Leafs new management seems to be staying away from those long term contracts… I’m not saying that these guys are a bust by any means, but we have had enough long contacts for awhile..


    SIDENOTE: With all the road closures for the PAN-AM games this weekend, I thought that some of you might enjoy even just listening to my last two videos for the TML LEGENDS section on my channel…, while you drive your way home…

    I did one for Belfour yesterday.. and here’s the newest from today..



    Have a great weekend, everyone..!

    GO CANADA GO!! : )

    P.S.: For those haters of mine that seem to be here.., why not go outside and take a walk.. and grow up…

    If you think I really care about LIKES & HATES on here, you really must be very immature.., because I rarely say much at all.. and if you just hated this post.., you must be very, very young and insecure.. I am almost 60… These things mean nothing to me… I just like to point out immaturity & rudeness when I see it, though… Being tough behind a keyboard is something even my cat could do… Have a nice day.. : )

    Off topic, although there isn’t that great center prospect in next year’s draft, the top 7 are all 6′ + and 200lbs + will be nice to see the Leafs forced draft some elite talent with size.

    Unless of course Hunter trades down to draft some no names.
