So I just want to give a quick pat on the back to myself as I point out that I predicted/demanded that the Leafs would get 4 points out of the 3 games last week. Our boys did 1 better and got 5. So kudos to them and of course myself for this accomplishment.
It seems that the era of the Monster has begun, to which I say thank goodness! I never liked the Toskala deal to start, but if your getting a "quality young starter" then ok. Mind you this was the second year in a row we gave up a prospect/pick for a quality young goalie (see Raycroft). Looking back how did Ferguson Jr keep his job so long?
All that is kind of in the past now so lets deal with today. Toskala has been terrible. Lets not even reflect on what I believe was the longest goal in NHL approx 197ft. Have a look for yourself. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=meFICJYORvA
Now Vesa is sporting a GGA north of 5. Eat his contract for the rest of the year, trade him for some Doritos (which are delicious, and you now probably have a craving for I'm sure). Just do something to free up his cap space, and bring in someone to help this team. Call up Joey Mac to help relieve Jonus, and ride that tandum for the rest of the season. Nothing but the best Vesa, but don't let the door hit you on the way out buddy.
Our next 5 games @ Chi, vs Cal, @ Ott, @ Car, and vs Was. I want 2 wins and an OT loss. I'm just asking for 5 out of 10 possible points. Steal another in there and I'll be impressed, and we kind of need to start doing things like that to get back into this thing. Until next week, happy hunting fellow Leaf Nation citizens.
