As a Leafs fan, I'm happy to see this.

Very classy move. And I'm a Hab fan, so I don't usually give out compliments to the Leafs But this really was a great gesture.

See...now that's just cool...instead of turning it into a "lose/lose" pissing contest...this'll turn into a "win/win" pissing contest that benefits both cities.

Classy move!




Now I just hope that our brain dead mayor pays attention to how it's really done.

awesome! perfect response!

I hope the Sens match or exceed, in both cities... and why not other cities as well? let's start something here!

Finally, it looks like the winners will be the food banks, like it was meant to be in the first place. Classy move by MLSE.

I agree, very intelligent response by the Leafs.

I think the sens should match. Don't exceed it because then you get into a game of possible one up manship.

Thanks, I really don't mean it in a bad way, more like a joke because we know what happened with Ottawa last year. I'm proud of MLSE, that was a great move and it shows that they back their fans. What would be great is seeing the Toronto Maple Leafs players come into the Corel Centre and donate food as well showing how classy they can be as well.

To me it seems like the Mayor and council got exactly what they wanted. Some hype for the food bank donation scheme. Why not use the Sens-Leafs rivalry to do some good for charity? Hardly clueless, but brilliant I say.

Nice move by the Leafs.

Maybe the Sens can hand out 'How to improve your sense of humor' self help books at the game also...

Also stickinassectomys will be performed free of charge!

Perhaps next Mats will be donating some Campbell's Chunky soup or whatever the heck soup that commercial was for to the Ottawa foodbank.

I love this move by the Leafs, stickin it to em where it hurts most in this case, PR.

Now Leaf fans will be twice as loud in Ottawa and there'll be twice as many Leaf-fans there. Not looking too bright for the Sens...

I would.
