Perhaps these principles wil be helpful in our future discussions, once there is actually something to talk about.
While that is certainly profound which we would expect no less from you.

But I like to put me Peter Principles into to Practice ..

So

When coach Quinn yells Top line and Sundin jumps on the ice it will look like Leafs are down 2 men and on the PK.

and

When Quinn yells 4th line your up .. 12 guys jump over the boards and Leafs are called for too many men on the ice.

You're only as strong as your weakest link .. So maybe to be successful its not the top guys that count you just have to have better crappy guys then your opponent ??

Perhaps it just going to take a little getting use to Bettman Utopia NHL in the future.
