Calling LeafNation!

Fellow Nationites!

I am hereby calling upon all citizens of Leafs Nation to pull together and use our collective conscience and make something special happen.  Now, I ain't talking about feeding poor kids or saving ozone, I'm talking about the NHL Draft.  We need to make something happen, and if we all focus our energy on it, if we join together in this deed, then the cosmos will realign and Burkie will be able to move up and grab our man.  To do this, we need something simple to help us channel our national mojo and align the stars, we need a mantra, and its gotta go like this:

Get Couturier (Get*Koo*Tour*EE*Ay)

We should all turn and face corporate headquarters and repeat, maybe 100 times a day, GetKooTourEEAy, GetKooTourEEay, GeetTourEeay ...

Sean Couturier is a 6'3~6'4 200 pound centre with a ton of skill who was tops on many folks draft list in September.  His value seems to have tumbled back to low top ten, a pick that might be achievable with a little national goodwill and mojo working ... 96 points in each of the last two years, with a combined +117 rating.   

The last time I had this kinda feeling, Fletcher was the GM and I had just seen a lanky 16 year old undress 2 defensemen on a 1 on 2.  I looked at the kid and said, "C'mon Fletch, draft this kid."  I spent the next month saying, "I tell ya guys, if this Lecavalier kid doesn't go #1 overall in 2 years, then I'm (fill in the various blanks)."

Maybe if I had a mantra then, we coulda made something happen. 

But now, another big skilled centre comes out of the Q and I so I begin:

"GetKooTourEEay, GetKooTourEEay, GetKooTourEEay"

c'mon, LeafNation, say it with me -GetKooTourEEay...
