Please Santa make this dream come true. After all he just finished beating the Islanders, the benchmark of an elite team.

"This Xmas could be better if Santa stuffs a certain piece of paper in my stocking. #whatcouldthatbe???"

Toilette paper?

Absolutely, extend his contract for at least 10 years. Ronnie has been did a great job for the first two months of the season. Why wouldn't you extend his contract after that?

The way Toronto has been playing, I hope he does get a contract extension.

LOL!

Good one, roamer.

And I hope he gets the extension he wants. A 45-year Cup-less streak deserves that kind of loyalty. Wilson's done his share, missing the playoffs three years in a row. I have confidence he'll find a way to make it four.
