This is a problem for Gary. He'll never get his usual huge bonus from his real employer, the NBA, for his usual stellar work preventing hockey from overtaking basketball in popularity.

Flappyhead: soopey: .

Yeah. Because the leafs have such a good track record with up and coming superstars.

You mean like Matthews, Marner, Nylander, Reilly, Kapanen, Hyman, Johnsson, I could keep going if you like.  If you're going to dump on Toronto at least get some new jokes.  Zamboni drivers come to mind.


If Matthews, Marner, Nylander, Reilly, Kapanen, Hyman and Johnsson were so good how did they lose to a Zamboni Driver?

isthisme: I'll watch hockey over any sport and I'm happy the players will continue to let the owners keep the bulk of the revenue however I don't understand this ignorant need to restart the season.

Last I read they are looking at July, cramming as many games as possible then not starting 20/21 until late December or January?

Unless they are looking to become a summer sport, why not just end 19/20 season and start the new season on time in October?


Some teams and fan-bases like winning Stanley Cups. If you are a Leafs fan I can understand where this could be a puzzler though.

He took great strides last night, guaranteeing that none of the worst teams in the NHL get a shot at drafting a franchise player in Lafrenier.

Oh well. The bonus there is that my Red Wings season tickets keep getting upgraded because others are turning theirs in because they don't like watching their team get beat every night. Now I just have to hope we get to use them.
