Here we go again Leaf fans..This year there is a lot of optimism that has been generated among the Leafs Nation...Coming off a very disappointing 2006-2007 season where the Leafs JUST and i mean JUST missed the playoffs, there is a lot to be optimistic for this year. The Leafs led by their young GM John Ferguson JR made some big off season moves to help this club. Acquring Vesa Toskala not only improved our goaltending situation, it will also give the franchise in a position to have trading power with 3 solid goalies in the system in Toskala,Raycroft and hot prospect Justin Pogge.The other major move the Leafs made is adding that elusive big scorer on the top line...It has been said for years Sundin hasnt had a true goal scorer on his wing and Jason Blake might be the guy. I personally believe that Blake is a better fit with the playmaking Kyle Wellwood and it remains to be seen how Coach Paul Maurice will have the lines set up.The other wildcard is Mark Bel..Bell was a highly touted 1st round pick with Chicago and put up 25 goals a few years ago before the trade to San Jose...After having personal problems off the ice, if Bell gets his act together he will be a major player on this team...Lets go Leaf Fans..Lets band together and lets do it this year...

This post is just over 10 years old..Its cringeworthy some of the stuff that was written..Hot prospect Justin Pogge, Jason Blake and Mark Bell...Oh boy that was bad..

What will be Toronto's #1 line if Matthews can't play?

"Nikita Soshnikov has a clause in his contract that states the Maple Leafs must call him up by November 14th or else he can return to the KHL on loan. The Insiders discuss whether this clause might force Toronto to make a move..."

The Leafs play Philly on Jan 18th on Lindros retiring night. My buddy is a huge Lindros fan and wants to go.

I am iffy because I am not sure if I want to make the trek. However if I do go, Otto will of course be tagging along with me. The casino is down the street and as you know, I will make a trek over to it. I than thought Otto can't go but he will be able to at midnight. He turns 21 on Jan 19th.

5 in a row. 4 without Matthews.

Otto is on a trek with a bunch of York U guys in Montreal this weekend. They hope to get tickets for the game.

100 York U students went to Montreal. Only 6 guys went to the game. 4 of them already had tickets except for Otto and someone else. The scalper wanted $200 for the tickets but Otto got him down to $150. He told me that they had an unreal experience at the game and the guy Otto went with said the ticket was worth every single penny. Looks like Otto has a new buddy.

Also forgot that students are generally poor. They ate at food courts and fast food. Otto never got to experience the restaurants in Montreal but they did go and see the nightlife.

The funny thing was that they had 4 to a room. In Otto's room it was 3 guys and a skinny Russian girl. She got angry that Otto got a rollaway bed since it took alot of space. She bolted to stay with friends and they never saw her again.

Not a great day for Scott Darling. Tough to give up 8 goals in an NHL game without getting yanked.

Biatch is using Vegas goalies today so lots of Leafs goals would be great.

There will be representation in Philly on Lindros jersey retirement night next week. Otto and I will be at the game. Flying in on the day and flying back the next morning. We are going with a good friend of ours who is a huge Lindros fan.

It's time to ask the question.

Is Mike Babcock a bad coach?
