JR should trade a pick for Komisarek right now. I heard he's in the State
Just tell him to turn the other way when going to the locker room and give him a red and black jersey instead of a white and blue one.
Also, post of the year candidate from the Leafs GDT

It costs a ton of money to put kids through years of playing hockey with less than a 1% chance the kid will ever make the NHL. We are seeing the ramifications of the high cost of hockey on families and as a result a weak talent pool year after year that feeds the NHL. The on ice product sucks Mr Bettman. Get rid of the count and contract to 20 teams get rid of all these money losing bad market teams and scrub players. I wouldn't pay a dime to see this crappy 30 team product. The NHL is over loaded with 3rd and 4th line plugs..i'm not entertained! A report out yesterday said something like 37% of people now expect to spend less on the NHL brand. Gee no kidding i wonder why. They don't even give a rats ass about hockey in the U.S. they think it's a goon sport like the WWE the Americans just don't care for the NHL product.
If the Leafs can't make the playoffs in this god awful NHL in this shortened season it would be beyond laughable. Ottawa has lost Spezza and now Karlsson Sens should be falling back in the standings Philly is a joke Holmgren has ruined that team Buffalo has an AHL level scoring attack the Habs are a disgrace and the Caps are an AHL team with a disinterested and under performing Ovechkin. Then of course there are the usual bottom feeders like the Islanders Florida Winnipeg/Atlanta. If the Leafs can't make the playoffs this year...
