I hope Kaberle makes it with NJ. Their D is pretty thin.

If they added an NHL team to your city. How tempted would you be to switch teams. I wouldn't switch but i would definitely check out a few games if Mississauga got a team.

@ingy56 I liked Kabs back in the day. He was a good Leaf. A late pick that worked out well which was very rare at the time for the Leafs (and still is, but hopefully getting better).


Like @Reether, I wish him all the best. Would like to hear his "Oh yeah for sure..." once again in a post game ;)

@ingy56 It's not that hard to remember the fans screaming shoot at him during power plays as he dangled along the red line searching desperately for someone to pass it to.  The other team didn't even bother to cover him as it was so plain he was not an offensive threat anymore.  He had a great run in the early and mid 2000's but it was plain to see by the time he left the team and soon the league that either he had lost the magic or the game had changed and he hadn't.

@ingy56 He drove me nuts the last couple years here but I wish him only the best, I hope he can make a comeback.

@ingy56 one of the few covers I like better than the original.  For me     Sting>SRV>Hendrix  (no disrespect meant to Jimmy the Master)

Hmmm

@wiski @mike_84 What's the story?  Two guys feuding over which team is better already?

@mike_84 I'm an animal lover and even though I like the idea, I also find this excessive (due to size). I'd wait for version 2.0.

Hmmm

@mike_84 Dunno 'bout that. What if you find fornification, up-the-skirt, and other unintended images?

Hmmm

@mike_84 What would you like the team to be called?  'Sauga Dogs? lol

@mike_84 Might sound funny, but I'm of the feeling that a 2nd NHL team may not be a slam dunk success here. Toronto's a Leaf town, not necessarily a hockey town.

I would hope that they'd put the 2nd Toronto team in a different division (not sure if that's possible or not).  I'd watch both teams.  Would LOOOOVE it if Burke was brought in as GM.  Begs the question of another Hot Stove site (fuck, can you imagine....4 different threads going at the same time on 2 different sites....lol).

@mike_84 I think if Bodie shows up like he did last year, he will stick with the big club. He was one of the only bottom 6 last year that showed up ever night. 


/edit I have no idea how far Devane is, just thinking Bodie has the inside shot to make the big club

@Bobsyouruncle @ingy56 Screw you Bob, I just finished playing.  Now after seeing that, I gotta play some more but I'm too tired !!!!    


10 likes. That was a special night for him.  I wonder if that latino tempo change was all improvised? - fantastic  :D

@Yaknowwhat Auto complete error... inexcusable though for a news outlet.

@MaxwellHowe @wiski @mike_84 Assuming the quote is from the airline. Unless we've gotten to the point where even "news" outlets start getting snarky.

@ingy56 @FloorHockeyFlopper For me Jeff Beck is SO unique, his covers are more Jeff Beck than the actual song - I prefer him just doing his own stuff.     Nice ALS challenge BTW  *thumbs up dude*

@Hmmm @ingy56 @mike_84 Not sure, I mean the Leafs do get tremendous support in Buffalo and even Ottawa, but that's 4 times a year. It's just a funny feeling I have. I think the K-W area would be a great spot, just not sure what the Red Wings would think. Might impact junior hockey in that region too.

@Yaknowwhat I could be wrong, they probably have market studies that indicate a huge potential market. However, the WHA was a no-go here, even when the Leafs sucked ass. I'm positive the Toros would have beaten the Leafs of that year. Junior hockey has failed here on numerous occasions. Sure, neither of these examples are NHL hockey but it's enough to make me wonder. 

Hmmm

@mike_84 Leafs would have to screw up bad then. Hmmm, I wonder if it would be possible to buy a stake in the ownership?

@Bobsyouruncle @FloorHockeyFlopper haha I recently heard an interview (forget who) who said a lot of early blues players would wail away on a solo in the club, go into the can to take a dump, and come back onstage still playing the solo.   Man, stories like that have to be true haha

I got the same feeling Ingy...your bang on..its a Leaf town...not a hockey town....I think alot of people would be absolutely shocked by the lackluster fan support of a second Toronto team...

@wiski @ingy56 @mike_84 That rink needs serious renovations, if not a new one. They should have had a team instead of Ottawa. Someone screwed up there. 

Hmmm

@Yaknowwhat Still, wouldn't it sell out for every game against the Leafs?

@wiski @ingy56 @Yaknowwhat Yeah, me too. I went to a bunch of games...better hockey than Harold's motley crew. Hell, they had half his players.

I was playing golf once at Derrydale (or whatever it's called)...back in the mid 90's...and Hazel was in the lounge having a few drinks.  I'll always remember her car hitting a garbage can on the way out...lol.  I've met her a few times over the years.....feisty woman, that's for damn sure.
