Reading the Tea Leafs: Dominic Mo- erm, Boyd Devereaux

Following on the success of two other dormant series Chemmy and I have decided that in order to fill the gap in NHL news that we'll take a look at each of the current Leafs, possible Leafs on the Marlies, and prospects. I bet no one reads this. First person to mention this line in the title gets this week's pin. We'll recap their performance last year, what we can expect from them, and how they can win our hearts (hint: signing the contract was a good first step...unless your name is Bryan McCabe Ian White). We have no idea how long of a series this will end up being or how consistent it will be but with two of us expect it to only be half as half-assed and twice as timely.

Former Leaf he'd have to play like in order to be christened a deity
Dominic Moore.

Biggest Question Marks
Could we have acquired Patrik Stefan, kept Wade Belak, and had the "Draft Bust" line?

2007-2008 Summary
Dominic Moore shit I mean Boyd Devereaux played on the fourth line and didn't do very much. He doesn't do completely idiotic things on the ice I suppose. Good for him.

Projected 2008-2009 role/team

Domin- seriously this isn't even a gag I keep forgetting about which one of these two I'm writing about. Dominic Moore is the younger one, Boyd Devereaux is the older more boring one. I'm trying here, honest.

Anyhow, Dominic Moore (I didn't notice this one until I previewed the article and read it out loud to myself, good lord) Boyd Devereaux will probably get his paycheck and ten minutes of ice time a night until he gets hurt and misses 20 games like he does every season. Shit, I work more than 82 days a year and I don't get 20 days off.

In conclusion, if you could get paid $600k a year to not do a whole lot in exchange for promising not to screw up on a grand scale a la Bryan McCabe, you'd be Boyd Devereaux.
