I would like to officially congratulate Jerry D'Amigo on signing his ELC, and welcome him to Toronto. Jerry, if end up being the type of player that so many Leaf fans hope you can become, welcome to the kind of adoration that you can rarely find anywhere else. But no pressure, kid. Go out there, have fun, and work hard. Wear the blue and white proudly and do whatever you can, and the rational Leaf fans will appreciate you anyways.
