Probably not the best place to put this, but.........I managed to get tickets to a few Olympic games! Nothing super special, 1 good team vs 1 crap team (SWE-BLR. FIN-BLR, SLV-LAT) but I'll at least get to experience the atmosphere. I just wish I could have gotten a Russian game (since I knew there was no chance in hell I was gunna get a Canada game) - it would have been awesome to see Ovechkin live........oh well.

Hey, at least you get to see two of the top five teams in the world.



My Leafs are doing so baddd.

What bothers me is that they are constantly outshooting and outworking their opponents, but can't seem to score. I think Jason Blake is rubbing off on all of the other players, and they've started aiming for the logo on the goalie's uniform...



Flyers beat the Devils, oh baby

Leafs have no leadership. Do they even have a permanent Captain?



Dion Phaneuf has been traded to the Toronto Maple Leafs.

 

"Two teams in dire need of a shakeup have done just that, as the Calgary Flames have shipped defenceman Dion Phaneuf, forward Fredrik Sjostrom, and and defenceman Keith Aulie to the Toronto Maple Leafs in exchange for forwards Matt Stajan, Niklas Hagman, Jamal Mayers and defenceman Ian White. The Maple Leafs and Flames have been working on the components of this blockbuster for a week to ten days, but sources say the details of the deal didn't fall into place until late last night."
