Raking Leafs

Mixing metaphors and casting cliches about hockey and the Maple Leafs for the ether's pleasure since MCMLXVII.


Kilger re-signs for three years @ $2.7m

Chad Kilger, a former first round and fourth overall pick, has received a contract he earned all year, finishing checks, skating hard, and generally looking like he still has something to prove in his tenth NHL season.

Recently Kilger commented how the new standards of enforcement have benefitted his game, putting his excellent skating on display. But his wheels aren't his only asset, as his win in the hardest shot competition is testament. His quick release spin shot from the slot was a pleasant surprise to me this year.
