Two things....

....that hockey fans knew, but Leaf fans didn't:

1) Ron Wilson treats his players like shit. Ok, so not only is he the first coach ever to miss the playoffs three years straight and keep his job (good business decision Burkie!), but it's being confirmed that many of his players dislike him. You might've heard of this one particular unimpressed player, one once considered by Leaf fans a top contender for the Captain position, once touted as the best offensive D-man in the league, once considered untouchable (no wait, that was this guy), currently serving out his last 5 games as a Leaf: Tomas Kaberle.

Well it seems Kaberle has an issue with Wilson. Kaberle is "unhappy with the manner in which Wilson coaches the Leafs and the lack of respect he shows for the players." The only quality veteran on the TMLs, the only one around when the Leafs were a playoff team and hence the only one who has seen several coaching changes thinks Wilson is a bad coach. It's been clear to the rest of us that Wilson can't coach a team of anything less than superstars, and I'm looking forward to a mutiny of this undeserving and overrated Burke buddy-buddy sometime next December.

Next time you're in Ottawa, Kabby, and out of the poo and white jersey, drinks are on me.

2) Speaking of being overrated, alleged future Leaf Captain Dion Phaneuf was voted the NHL's most overrated player in a recent poll. "Bah!" says the average leafer in response. "Those polls are unreliable, just a bunch of fan monkeys selecting radio buttons for their hated rivals".

But wait! No, this is not a poll of fans, or of Howard Berger et al., but a poll of NHL players. You know - the guys who actually face Phaneuf on the ice (and, quite possibly inclusive of current and former teammates given the sample size). You can't get a more knowledgeable group than that, now can you?

"Yeah," retorts leafer, "but the next guy was probably within the margin of error of the study".

Think again, Leaf fans: "His 21% of 272 votes was almost as many as the next four combined;Wade Redden, Scott Gomez, Shawn Horcoff and Sean Avery."

Isn't this guy supposed to save your defense in the all-world-all-amazing-rebound of 2010/11? NHL stars don't take him seriously, so why should anyone else?
