Brendan Shanahan Does The ALS Ice Bucket Challenge

+

Maple Leafs President Brendan Shanahan did the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge (donate here).

He was promptly doused by his three kids with the last one cracking him in the head or as he put it:

(illegal contact to head followed by launching followed by late hit....bad parenting)

To which Patrick Burke replied, in proper NHL Department of Player Safety fashion:

You materially change the position of your head just prior to or simultaneous with the contact by Kid 3.

Tom Anselmi's MLSE Legacy

+

Now that Tim Leiweke has confirmed that he will be gone no later than June 2015 or as soon as a replacement is found talk has turned to who might replace him. This article looks back at Anselmi's time at the helm of Toronto FC which should be enough to preclude him from the job but he *is* nice to the media so there's chatter!

Kiss And The Leafs

Kiss played in Toronto last night and got Leafs jerseys. Surely they are just a few performances away from their own banner in the rafters of the ACC

Every Goal Mike Santorelli Scored In 2013-14

+

Pass It To Bulis has a post up showing all 10 of Santorelli's goals last season. He was probably the best Canuck forward last season until Martin Hanzal wrecked his shoulder. Looking forward to watching him play for the blue and white.

After watching the Leafs fire people, hire people, and make some nice signings while on my honeymoon I finally get to talk about it!
