This game on Saturday really has no great benefits to the Canucks, besides 2 points. But could you imagine if Vancouver loses? Can you imagine the Toronto fans then? I don't want to imagine it, so instead, enjoy your news about the Canucks:
Kesler Contract Talk
Kesler's agent spoke to Kuzma of The Province about the contract that he feels that Kesler deserves to sign. It's gonna be big money, because Kesler is the type of player that is the heart and soul of a great team. In my opinion, Kesler is captain material. If he wasn't in his last year of his contract, I would be saying that he should be the captain instead of Luongo. Overhardt brings up an interesting statistic that the Canucks "won 74.36 per cent of their games (26-10-3) when the twins had less time than Kesler."
Schneider Ready to Go...
...But he's gonna have to wait until Sunday's game against Edmonton before he'll be able to play because of IR regulations.
Burkie acts like a 5 year old
In a phone interview to The Province today, Brian Burke talked about how he wasn't going to make a big deal of the tampering accusations that were made by the Canucks, but in the end, well you know that he is Brian Burke, and he's making a big deal of it. As per usual, Burkie has some gold quotes:
- âIâm certainly not going to pour any gasoline on a fire that as far as Iâm concerned doesnât exist. When other organizations talk or complain about the Leafs, I ignore it by and large.â
- âWe werenât copied with any of the correspondence or made aware of it so when all this talking was going on we were mystified, it was like, what are they talking about?â Burke said. âIf we were going to bring a tampering charge against a team we would copy the team on it, make them aware of it. That wasnât done so we were kind of in the dark on this.
- âIf I didnât see Mike, that wouldnât be a snub,â Burke said. âIn my building, I always go down and talk to the visiting GM, ask him if they need anything. I donât know what Mike does. If I see him, Iâll say hi to him, but if I donât see him I wouldnât consider it a snub. . . . Iâm not jumping off a bridge if I donât see him and Iâm not going to order a cake if I do.â
"The Monster," Beauchemin said, offering up his best scary voice, albeit with a distinct Quebecois accent. "The Monster!"-Globe and Mail
My favorite addition to the Leafs this year is definitely Jonas Gustavsson.
Well he's Swedish, his name is Jonas, and his nickname is The Monster! (with the exclamation mark!).
Those are three perfectly good reasons to love The Monster!
Reports out of Toronto that say that he might be ready to go for the Vancouver game on Saturday afternoon. It's not likely, but it would be nice because Mirtle saying that Schenner might be a healthy scratch, and really Schenn and Gustavsson are the only two things that I like about the Leafs.
