Good morning Toronto Maple Leafs fans!
Yesterday afternoon we had a vision of things to come in Toronto. Auston Matthews, leading a team of young, great hockey player, wearing a blue jersey, with Mitch Marner, William Nylander, and Morgan Rielly by his side, winning a championship and being named MVP.
Sadly, it happened in February, not June this time, but it will be a summer celebration soon enough. For now, we'll accept an All-Star victory but soon we will demand Stanley.
Team Matthews had a little fun ahead of time, doodling on their gloves.
Coach Justin Bieber took to the ice for warm ups.
Overall, it seems like the home crowd had fun, the glitches and slowdowns from last season were mostly worked out and it was a successful All-Star Game for everyone.
Next year we won't have one as the NHL will host a weird mid-season tournament with NHLers from Canada, Sweden, Finland, and the USA. Good for the other players for getting an extra week off.
Most of the other news out there is rehashing the Olympics, four nations, or Coyotes news we've been hearing about all weekend. So here are a few other items to discuss.
Who has let you down the most this season?
Hopefully we've learned good things.
Enjoy your day everyone!
