Who Ya Gonna Call?

Well, it certainly won't be a bunch of idiots wearing vacuum cleaner backpacks. I'm referring to a group of people that sucked in a slightly less literal way. What I'm asking is, given the option of calling any making a drunken phone call to any former Leaf player, whose number would you dial? Over at The Leafs Nation, Danny Gray chose Alex Steen:

Alex? Are you there? If you’re listening just hear me out. I’m so sorry about the way things ended. I should never have listened to Cliff Fletcher. He had clearly become the "Senile Fox" by then. We were all still so happy to be rid of JFJ that we said and did some things we didn’t really mean.  Now you’re in St. Louis and I’m here all alone, without you. How did it get to this point?

There are links a plenty after the jump to get your commenting engines going after a long weekend layoff, so get back to work, you lazy bums. I mean, get to work here, not at your "real" job.
