What the hell, Maple Leafs fans?
I really have nothing to say aside from that.
An awful, awful weekend.
Awful starts to the season for key players.
So...there’s a game tonight against the Hurricanes at 7PM, if you’re interested in that at all. It’s on Sportsnet if you want to bother.
In a probably more exciting game, with a better outcome, and better players you can watch Game two of a pre-Olympic series with Canada vs USA. That’s also at 7PM on TSN5.
So, there’s a podcast you could listen to.
Look, i know the Leafs are bad right now, but at least - AT LEAST - we aren’t the Sabres. That said even Sabres fans don’t want to talk about their on ice performance.
We have a trade to announce. The Senators send the Sharks back their 2022 7th round pick in exchange for forward Dylan Gambrell.
The Chicago Blackhawks are trying new things..
Hawks call timeout, Colliton hands the dry erase to the players, they appear to draw something up and hand it back. that’s…interesting pic.twitter.com/6LTNLBYbDe— Liam McHugh (@liam_mchugh) October 25, 2021
They also aren’t doing well.
Blackhawks lose 6-3.— Mark Lazerus (@MarkLazerus) October 25, 2021
Fall to 0-5-1.
Set a record for season-opening futility, at 360:57 without holding a lead.

This is very bad.
The Blackhawks could make dubious NHL history tonight. The NHL record for the longest drought without a lead to start a season is 324:25 by Charlie O. Finley's California Golden Seals in 1970, per research via @stathead. The Hawks (0-4-1) are at 300:57 going into tonight's game.— Mark Potash (@MarkPotash) October 24, 2021
When will it get better?
The Blackhawks are one of just two teams in the NHL without a win so far this season (0-4-1), and they’re down 4-1 to Detroit in their own barn tonight. Their next opponent is the Leafs on Weds. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯— Justin Bourne (@jtbourne) October 25, 2021
Ah, so Wednesday.
We don’t want to leave you all on a downer, so here’s a story about someone trying something new, and it working:
Enjoy your day!
