The Morning Skate for Tuesday, October 21st

Bullet points for what you missed while having nightmares of getting dumped as Liberal leader (nightmare to some, dream for others)...
  • RDS headline about the Habs 3-1 win over the Panthers last night: "some talent and some luck." Okaaaay. I don't want to rely on luck to win games. How about some Jaro? He dominated. Trade bait! Trade bait! Saks gets his 600th career point, Frankie B scores the winner in his return, and Pleks shows up to score in an empty net. OK now we're rambling. More later today;
  • Ryder blows chinks in the shootout (big surprise) as the B's lose 2-1 to the Pens;
  • Sean Avery returns to New York, goes out for dinner. Oh, and Stars beat the Rangers;
  • This will probably get its own post soon, but check out this headline: "NHL Governors Considering Second Team in Toronto". One team of suck isn't enough?
It's a long wait 'til Saturday. Bring on the mindless filler!

Am I the only one who thinks that Rhino maybe isn't ready for the big show. He's been given plenty of opportunity and I realize dmen take longer to mature. But at this point, and it really pains me to say this, I trust Breezer more than I trust Rhino. He scares me if he's near the puck in the defensive zone. Seems to panic a lot.

He doesn't totally suck, but also doesn't instill a lot of confidence. Here's hoping he can turn his game around.

Rhino looks good on paper, big body. Problem with that is that he plays like Hal Gill not Zdeno Chara, not that Chara is infallible, but he's not a road cone like gill and Rhino. I'm hoping time and playing time can help him but i'm hoping we'll bundle him with halak and get Hossa.

After more than 40 years of suckitude, Toronto decides to trow away the Leafs and get a new team.
