Things will ramp up for Toronto after the conclusion of the Stanley Cup Final, but right now there's nothing but rumor and speculation. Like a show on MTV, there's no real substance. There are still interesting storylines elsewhere in the NHL though. For example, the hated Vancouver Canucks will attempt to win their first championship tomorrow night in Boston. I say attempt because, as we all know, the meltdown by Roberto Luongo is inevitable. Then we'll get an entire summer of Vancouver writers telling us how the Canucks were robbed. It's going to be delicious. Go Bruins.
