10:16 AM ET 10.20 | Tim Leiweke's quirky honesty has taken a pounding in his first few months on the job as CEO of Maple Leaf Sports and Entertainment. He promised an exclusive to the Toronto Star and burned them on it and recently lied to a Toronto Sun columnist on the night Dave Nonis was taken to hospital. I may not have cared much for his predecessor, Richard Peddie, but I don't remember him fudging the truth to anyone at any time.

He's at Ref-Con 2 and off and running to replace D Delmastro (depending on whether he can read while prevaricating). Loofas looked like the Loofas last night - too bad they gooned their top goalie theyselves. The sooner Reimer's out of Tory-TO-ON town the better, for him anyway.

If some in the media can twist and misrepresent, or at times outright make it up, why not the other side too.

Shades of Lord Irk but ... a little higher up the ladder? Works for me!

That's the truth.
