Raking Leafs

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


I'll Wager On Futility

Ninja, I propose a bet.

I'll wager one cheap domestic beer on the first of our teams to put together back-to-back wins in 2008. You have a head start.

    Should shoot-out wins count?

    Regulation Wins Only. They are our rules, so we might as well reward what we think is right.

    I was just about to post that Ninja. Not that it matters since the Leafs couldn't win after 60 minutes if their lives depended on it.

    They can't win within 60 minutes either. Those OTL numbers don't lie.

    Speaking of, well, nothing to segue off of, but Moore, Boyd and Kilger actually looked good. Creative and effective puck movement in through the neutral zone and in the cycle. And Stralman finally got the green light.

    Ninja, you said "Regulation Wins Only". Do OT wins count?

    I'm thinking that overtime wins are okay, but shoot-out wins are not. I'm flexible though.

    And yes, Moore, Boyd & Kilger looked solid. I always liked Moore when he was with the Blueshirts. He's like Blair Betts (serviceable, workmanlike, responsible).

    If they need more than 60 minutes, they aren't winning the pure way. Like before regular season OT, and 4 on 4 OT and shootouts. If after 60 its tied, you didn't win the game.

    Rock on. It's a bet.

    And look at that, The Rangers have surged into the lead.

    Why do I get the feeling this could go on a while?
