An Introduction


    I would like to begin by thanking Alec for the opportunity he has created here at MLHS. I not only refer to his gracious offer to join his team of bloggers, but to the wider notion of a site where fans of the Toronto Maple Leafs and of hockey as a whole can come together to engage in passionate hockey debate. Some of you will know me as TMLShab from HockeyBuzz, the chat boards at and countless other hockey sites.

    I can’t get enough hockey. Sadly, its physically impossible (read: exhausting) to spend all your time tearing up the rink or watching games and highlights on your television. As such, I turned long ago to the blossoming phenomenon of internet discussion boards to get my hockey fix. I’m sure this song and dance is familiar to most of you. Here at Maple Leafs Hot Stove, my sole desire is to continue to provoke discussions about the game (and team) we all love.

    To give you all a taste of my writing style, I’ll leave you with a link to my first round entry in the HockeyBuzz Next Great Blogger Contest.
