Opposition Coverage: Broad Street Hockey
Martin Biron has a bright future in custodial engineering
The Leafs travel to the City of Brotherly Hate hoping to avoid snowballs, batteries, and falling jackasses on their way to winning the second in a home-and-home series with the Broad Street Boarders.
The soon to be newly minted coach of Team USA at Vancouver 2010, Ron Wilson, is putting the Gerberserker back in net after serving his three game suspension for highlighting the inadequacies of Mike Leggo. Also debuting tonight is the Leafs' latest messiah Christian Hanson! He'll be playing on a line with Jason Blake and John Mitchell. So what can we expect from the Spawn of Slap Shot?
Ummm...apparently not any of that:
"The danger is that because his dad was a low-skill guy with a high level of pugnacity and truculence, that people will assume because the kid is 6-foot-4, he's going to bring the same package. He's not. This is a guy we're signing as a skill player. We're going to go after guys who bring that other skill set. This guy doesn't have it."
Great. So we can look forward to this I guess:
At least the game will be entertaining!
