Toskala Exorcism

As I was reading Fleet Fox's post and the comments that followed, I couldn't help but notice; as a fan base, we have a lot of built up anger towards Vesa Toskala.

And honestly, who could blame us? Vesa Toskala is one of the worst goalies of the modern era. He refused to learn or change his technique (even when he was given the opportunity to study with one of the best goalie coaches in the NHL) he's let in some of the most laughable goals memorable and he still refused to show a modicum of regret or embarassment for his play. It's been said many times that without Vesa Toskala as our goalie this year, we would have finished out of the lottery and would not be giving Boston that coveted 2nd overall pick. Wouldn't that be lovely?

But, what can we do about this built up anger? I have a proposition - a Toskala Exorcism.

In my personal experience, the best way to rid yourself of anger is to give it a place to shine. No matter how or where you do it, airing out your anger is the best way to end it. In this vein, I propose that we use this forum to exorcise our hatred and resentment of Vesa Toskala. Think of it as therapy.

If you were talking to Vesa right now, what would you say? Write him a letter in the comments and let the anger flow out.
