The Maple Leafs Song: A Video Tribute

Last week, I shared with you The Maple Leafs Song, my homage to Adam Sandler and truculence. In honour of the commencement of the 2010-2011 NHL Regular Season tonight, I give you once again, The Maple Leafs Song – now with BRAND NEW VIDEO GOODNESS! (I learned that last bit from a marketing guy). Spouse… Continue reading The Maple Leafs Song: A Video Tribute

Rookie Tournament: Leafs 1 at Penguins 4

Spouse and I did make the drive down to Kitchener last night (earlier this evening, actually) to watch the Leafs rookies vs. the Penguins rookies.  I’ll have more to say about the game later – right now it’s late and I need to get to bed if I’m going to be a productive member of… Continue reading Rookie Tournament: Leafs 1 at Penguins 4

Coming from America: Why the Maple Leafs Will Sooner or Later Have Neighbours

James Mirtle’s work following the Phoenix Coyotes bankruptcy matter as it has unfolded has made for a fascinating read.  If you ignore for a moment the fact that this corporate soap opera is a passion play wreaking havoc with the emotions of fellow hockey fans – fans  who are loyal, hardy and dedicated enough to… Continue reading Coming from America: Why the Maple Leafs Will Sooner or Later Have Neighbours

Monster’s Inked: Jonas Gustavsson is a Maple Leaf

Last night, I painted a metaphorical picture of  Maple Leafs’ defenceman Francois “Happy Trails” Beauchemin and his bulky blueline brethren as  each being rather like a rampaging Godzilla, treating the opposition like so many unfortunate stomped-upon movie extras.  Today, Brian Burke brought us a real live Monster;  the Toronto Maple Leafs have signed Swedish goaltender… Continue reading Monster’s Inked: Jonas Gustavsson is a Maple Leaf

Happy Trails, Indeed: Francois Beauchemin is a Maple Leaf

The Maple Leafs signed defenceman Francois Beauchemin, late of the Anaheim Ducks, to a 4 year deal today.  The deal brings an annual cap hit of about $3.8 million. I am a huge fan of this signing, for several reasons: It will be hilarious to watch Montreal’s Lollipop Guild of Cammalleri, Gomez and Gionta spontaneously pee… Continue reading Happy Trails, Indeed: Francois Beauchemin is a Maple Leaf

No Fat Lady Yet: Tidbits from the Balsillie/NHL Ruling

I spent some time this morning (on my coffee break, relax everybody) looking at what Judge Redfield T. Baum had to say about the Phoenix Coyotes bankruptcy proceedings (Odin Mercer at Five for Howling has posted a link to a copy of Judge Baum’s ruling.) Much will be made of this ruling – and properly… Continue reading No Fat Lady Yet: Tidbits from the Balsillie/NHL Ruling

Brian Burke is Rocky: NHL Trade Deadline 2009

The 2009 NHL trade deadline came and went at 3 p.m. today.  You can find a complete recap and analysis here;  briefly, out the door go Nik Antropov and Dominic Moore (in return for draft choices).  In the door comes former Sens goalie Martin Gerber, who was claimed on waivers as a stopgap measure as… Continue reading Brian Burke is Rocky: NHL Trade Deadline 2009

Setting the Market: Brian Burke and the NHL Trade Deadline 2009

Nb:  I am cross-posting this article to both my own site and Pension Plan Puppets;  I spent a lot of time working on this, and it occurred to me that if Jammies or Sexypants accidentally pushed the wrong “deletify” button over there at PPP, I might lose the whole thing.  So here ’tis: Here’s the… Continue reading Setting the Market: Brian Burke and the NHL Trade Deadline 2009

Maple Leafs Twenty Questions: Funsize Edition

All-time world champion non sequitur (in that, in addition to being unrelated to the topic, it “follows” nothing):  My Dad, who seems to be working hard to secure a position as worldwide press agent for HiR:tb, tells me that there’s an army of people out there reading the blog and enjoying what I write.  That’s… Continue reading Maple Leafs Twenty Questions: Funsize Edition

The Day I Bought the Leafs.

I bought the Toronto Maple Leafs today. No, really, and although the Maple Leafs I own will never win the Stanley Cup, I’m just as happy as can be. Just to fit in with the previous owners, I told the first guy I met on the street today, “you’re fired.” I also raised the price… Continue reading The Day I Bought the Leafs.
