Vesa Gustavsson Doesn't Apologize. Leaves That to His Fans
"Superstar NHL caliber goalie Gustavsson was given the challenge last night of matching up against one of the greatest goalies of all time on a surging Devils team in order to keep the Leafs playoff chances alive! The bounces went against our Boys in Blue on the night, but if
Leafs 1, Employers of Matt Cooke 0
In life, we are all forced to do things we really don't want to do. Take me for example. As a board-certified massage therapist, every day I have to work on people from all walks of life who think that just because I'm "comfortable" with their nudity, suddenly I must
Gustavsson Finished. Expects 12 Year Conditioning Stint in Swedish Elite League
You know, life is full of delicious little mysteries: How does the mind work? What is the nature of love? How does Pierre McGuire keep finding a job? Well it doesn’t take a strict Jungian like me to figure out that another is certainly not knowing how and when
Leafs Play Half Great, Win 4-3. Leaf Fans All Great, Win Everyday
Last night we all found the answer to the riddIe, "Which is harder: the Leafs winning a hockey game or getting 10,000 comments to save lives?" The surprising answer is that they're both pretty goddamn tough. One half of the result came from the hard work of the Leafs'
Toskala Gets Shutout, Says: "I've Had a Laser Pointer in My Eyes For Two Seasons."
All right everyone, please settle down. I know it'll be difficult as we've all suffered an incredible blow. Obviously this morning we're still reeling from the shocking happenings at the ACC last night, or as I will now always refer to it, "The Events of 1/14.'" Wins don't
Leafs Lose, Broad Side of Barn Safe
In preparing to write this post about last night's Leafs/Oilers game, I tried to think of a bunch of cliches that I could use to illustrate my frustration. "Flat as a Pancake" was a good start. "Give the Shirt Off Your Back" was a bit of a stretch and
TML: Here's to Future Days
A funny thing happens to a young NHL superstar on his way to setting a personal high in shots in a game: you electrify a nation driven mad with desire for culpable proof that their team will actually have a number in the "wins" column in the double digits. And
Maple Leafs: Turn Head, Cough
As a doctor, I have devoted my life to ending the pain and suffering of those wretched souls who wander the world without hope, without direction. Choosing this path in life has brought me many riches; for example, it's how I met Chemmy. But now I want to put my
Game Review: TML 10
Summer has given way to fall this week and obviously that means a couple of important things. One is: VAMPIRE MOVIES!!1! The other is new hockey video games! And until they can merge my two faves (online screenname: PhaneufBiter69), I'll have to settle for one or the other. To
And Burke Said, "Let There Be Goals"
I'm not a religious man, to say the least. This one time a street corner preacher asked me if I needed to have my soul saved, and I answered "It's 11:30". In spite of this, I know when someone is doing the Lord's work, if the Lord is the
Talk to Your Doctor About DDoSS
If you're anything like me, and lets be honest, with all my charity work, how could you be, you're someone who loves the summertime. Long, hot days. Short, steamy nights. Tops go down and tops come off. With all due respect to Autumn, it's the sexiest, sexy season. So, that
Kerry Fraser: The Divider
As I sit here writing a post about Kerry Fraser, I sit here having a heated argument with someone I've never argued with... about Kerry Fraser. This person, whom I'll call "my 4:00 patient", listened intently to everything Fraser said as he fought for his life yesterday on Leafs
LEAFS OF FURY
Editor's Note: In an effort to ensure that my favourite bloggers don't disappear Chemmy has managed to get He Score He Shoot's Greener to agree to join Bitter Leaf MF37 as a contributing blogger. When will his posts show up? If this picture is any indication then I guess he'll
Game Preview: Leafs vs. Kings
The (American) Thanksgiving horn 'o' plenty keeps on giving for your friend Greener this week, and I keep on thanks-ing. This deliciously laden cornucopia brought to you by a peaceful, loving Universe, and the lawyers running the NHL who've finally realized that human beings west of, say, Buffalo actually want
Allies 6, Axis 3
On a night when HNIC honours heroes of the real and sporting type, the Leafs pick a great time to play what is increasingly becoming the mark of these 08/09 Leafs: 60 minutes of being a team that no one in the NHL enjoys playing against. Similar to the
He Score/He Shoot: He Said/He Said
We are just over a day away from the beginning of the season so it's time to make predictions for the upcoming season. Throughout the day we'll have a number of previews and first up are Steven Spielberg and my compadre - Greener and Norte from He Score, He Shoot.
McCabe/Fletcher: Two Men Enter, One Man Leaves
Editor's Note: You might remember Greener as part of the three man team that was needed to fill my shoes while I was gallivanting in Europe. He is also part of the team at He Score! He Shoot!. Considering his partner is Moose then you might say he's the entire
FTB - ...And That Should Just About Do It
Seeing as the date is July 12th, by my (Romulan) calendar, I make it approximately 400 weeks since what's-his-name left his forlorn, run-down Toronto Maple Leafs blog, Pension Plan Puppets, for his idylic, sexy vacation. Did I say vacation? I meant forever. When your friend and mine PPP (the man)
FTB - Nieuwendyk > Smith
One of my favorite goals ever scored by someone in a Leafs uniform was scored by the Toronto Maple Leafs new Special Assistant to the General Manager. That man's name is Joe Nieuwendyk, and he scored the winning goal in a 4-1 shit-kicking of the Ottawa Senators on April 19,
FTB - We're All In This Together!
With the last privately exploded Mexican-made 4th of July firework going off in my neighborhood this Saturday night, I'm realizing that summer is really here, and for those of us who love hockey, that only means one thing. Boredom. Remember that time when all that stuff was happening around the
Cliff Fletcher has acquired Mikhail Grabovski from Montreal for prospect Greg Pateryn and the Leafs 2nd round pick in 2010. So yaaaay! No second round picks for years now! A C/LW, Grabovski is a 24 year old Belarusian who was Montreal's 5th round pick in the 2004 draft. Here's
FTB - Perspective? I Got Your Perspective Right Here
With the uproar of free agency dying down, there are only a few good players left out there still fielding offers. Guys like Mats, Jagr, and me. Mind you, the offers I'm fielding are along the lines of "Do you want to biggie size those fries for only .99 cents?
Leafs Get The Finger
There. I beat the entire Sun media empire to the worst pun that Jared of London never made. Who the hell is Jeff Finger you may well ask. Well, go ahead and ask. No, I'll ask. Who in the hell is Jeff Finger? Here's another question: How in the hell
They Always Come Back
Underprivileged kids throughout the GTA are celebrating right now as the greatest friend the Boys and Girls Club ever had, Curtis Joseph, is returning to play for the Toronto Maple Leafs. Whether they left through trade, free agency, or were denied through fickle fate, they always end up coming back
FTB - Move Along...Nothing To Read Here
I fielded a phone call from Moose on Sunday night where over the course of 2 minutes his mood went from "in shock" to "off his ass elated" at the news that his favorite team, the Oilers, just traded Jared Stoll and Matt Greene to the Kings for Lubo Visnovski.
