I've had 3 or 4 people ask me what I thought of the trades this weekend.
One guy said the best thing ever for the NHL is if the Leafs win the Cup, and they're on their way to doing so (or words to that effect). Once I stopped laughing, I said that the NHL doesn't give a damn if the Leafs win - they already sell tickets, children are brainwashed from birth, merchandise sales are strong (based on all the **** I see in stores), and they have a strong TV following.
There are a few planning the parade... a few realistic souls who are hoping Giguere returns to 2003 form, Phaneuf becomes the stud he was advertised to be, and are glad that Blake is history, and a few who don't quite know whether to be happy or not.
Val, I'm not sure which is more satisfying - Leafs not making the playoffs annually, or when the Leafs made the playoffs and were eliminated by the Flyers. It's a tough call.
