Hey not this year, but maybe, possibly in two or three years we could be actually talking like this could happen. It sure is a lot closer than when Helix released this four years ago.

Stephen J. Harper: A Great Game: The Forgotten Leafs & the Rise of Professional Hockey

November 5th, 2013

For many years Prime Minister Harper has mentioned a small project he works on when the politics is done: a book on the history of hockey. Today, that book, A Great Game: The Forgotten Leafs & the Rise of Professional Hockey hit the bookstores. Looking at the rise of professional hockey in the early years of the 20th century, “A Great Game is about the hockey heroes and hard-boiled businessmen who built the game, and the rise and fall of legendary teams pursuing the Stanley Cup.”

Prime Minister Harper was on Toronto’s Prime Time Sports yesterday to talk about the book.

You can buy the book at the usual bookstores, buy it for your Kindle, iPad or other tablet device or, of course, do what I’m going to do and put it on your Christmas list.

And so begins a new NHL season for Leaf fans…

January 9th, 2013

I was never on the Brian Burke bandwagon. I remember before he was hired, everybody on town saying he was the only guy. And I wondered what they saw in him that I simply didn’t. But his firing now, at this time, is bizarre to me. At the end of last season sure, even over the summer once new ownership was in place. But now, some 20-games with his new coach and days before training camp starts?

So if you’re a Leaf fan who thought, young team, shortened season with extra long break before, if Jimmy Reimer can put together the kind of January to April run he did 2-years ago, this could work – sorry about your luck, it’s all starting from scratch.

And here’s a question, isn’t Dave Nonis the pro-Louongo go on the management team? sigh
