Raking Leafs

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


Blake, the wise

I'm starting to think there is an intellectual deficiency within the Leafs hockey operations, mostly because Jason Blake is pointing out the obvious and sounding like a friggin' genius.
A team like the Ottawa Senators," Blake said. "I've played against them twenty-some times and every time they're the toughest team to play against, every single time. You want to have the identity of being tough to play against.
Why this message hasn't been reinforced more than a NORAD bunker, I have no idea. I can handle being a losing team, but these flashes of 'what could be' followed by a big steaming pile of poo is unacceptable.
