"In the last 36 games Ottawa has only won 17 and have given up 3.25 goals per game".
Somebody a few months back on BoO was certain that the Sens were not nearly as good as their 16-3 record. He took a lot of flak. Most geniuses do.
"Moore, who was claimed off waivers from Minnesota on Jan. 11, banged a rebound past Ray Emery at 9:32 for his first goal in 10 games in the blue and white. A Luke Richardson giveaway to Boyd Devereaux behind the net set it up".
Toronto hits the waiver wire while Ottawa hit the 40 year old UFA pool.
Toronto 1 Ottawa 0
"Ottawa's Jason Spezza again looked lost without the injured Dany Heatley and Daniel Alfredsson".
One would think $7M would get you a guy who can make things happen by himself. Tlusty has two goals since being on Sundin's wing last week. Spezza can't even tie his skates without Heatley.
"Emery, who's had his fair share of incidents lately, didn't want another and said he wasn't about to overreact.''I definitely wasn't going to get into an altercation there. I might have been on the front page of a couple more papers,'' Emery said. 'Stuff happens, no big deal to me'."
A douchebag is as a douchebag does. Isn't that how it goes?
"(Toronto's) current roster is peppered with nine players born in 1983 or later: Earl, Stralman, Tlusty, Darryl Boyce, Alex Steen, Ian White, Carlo Colaiacovo, Matt Stajan and Kyle Wellwood... there is also Tyler Ruegsegger, who showed obvious talent while playing on the U.S. team at the world junior championship, and Toronto native Chris DiDomenico now the leading scorer in the QMJHL with Saint John... Justin Pogge and Nik Kulemin, both 22, very well could make the jump to the NHL next season."
Cut to the year 2010 as Brian Burke, GM of the newly minted Stanley Cup Champion Toronto Maple Leafs, gives props to JFJ for his contribution to the talented young core of the team.
