So we still don't have NHL Center Ice so I was unable to watch last night's game. It sounds to me like the Leafs are very much a work in progress, although I'll take a win any day of the week. Instead of watching the game, I participated in the live draft for PPPPP Division 1. I picked 2nd overall, behind our illustrious overlord PPP. He took Ovechkin, I took Crosby. After that I got stressed out so I really have no idea just how well my team turned out. Why am I stressed? Because Bell mobility is retarded. I'll leave it at that.
I just hope we get Center Ice soon so that I can get back to watching the Leafs to relieve my stress. Or give me a distraction. Or feed my addiction. Or, uh, just give me another reason to want to drink? Whichever. Lots of links after the jump (woooo hockey's back!)
