This quote was issued by Leafs GM Brian Burke in downtown Toronto yesterday, and while Jonas Gustavsson will get the start tonight in goal against the Wild, I have to ask: Has Burke gone off the deep end?
Here we have a team who is starting to come around. Starting to play good, solid, consistent hockey, and then we have an occasionally idiotic GM make one statement that could bring all that crashing down.
Now, I suppose that may be a little bold. I mean, I am Canadian!
But gosh, Brian, why would you puff out your chest and exhale onto the house of cards that is the Toronto Maple Leaf hockey team?
Geez, I'd better settle down and have a nice hot chocolate or something. Is it too early for a beer?
Here's the way I see it: Everything is finally going the way it was apparently supposed to go right from the start.
The players are playing well together, the goal-tending is getting better with each game, and the team seems to be buying into the Ron Wilson system.
So why rock the boat by stoking the fire of another goalie controversy?
