In amidst the Phoenix and Balsille trials, the NHL playoffs, and the recently concluded Memorial Cup, THN and Ken Campbell manages to do it again: a potshot at the Leafs and their fans. No doubt to fufill the daily quota.
Those who follow the Toronto Maple Leafs are always looking for the next savior and they’ll undoubtedly latch onto Dale Mitchell...You’d have to think the team and its fans have learned a little something from Justin Pogge, who went from national junior team hero to possible flop under the weight of ridiculous expectations and an organization that handled his development in its typical ham-handed fashion.
Once again, it's us fans that over hype a 3rd round pick who we have routinely called an invaluable energy/checking line player in the future by propping him up in an article. Funny thing is, that snippet of Dale Mitchell is the only time Campbell even mentions the Memorial Cup in the entire piece. Whatever boosts your readership, right Ken?
