Burning Maple Leafs - Game #52
#1
Canada's Team (sic) is coming to town tomorrow sporting a 19-23-9 record. The Leafs are another run of the mill club in Canada this year and started out with the perennial high hopes that life would be better with new management and coaching staff. Despite these improvements the Leafs have continued to struggle even if their off-season acquisition (Komarov) is leading the team in scoring. They are similar to Calgary in that they're having a tough time settling on a no.1 goalie even if James Reimer has a not too shabby GAA of 2.33 and a SV% of .929. Some in Leaf nation are getting excited about the prospect of having a very high draft pick next year. So the Leafs may be sellers over the next three weeks.

Meanwhile good old ourside are teasing us again. They've played not too bad their last few games. We still have a goalie issue (read Steinberg's 'analyis' on trading Ramo below. We're still trying hard to make the play-offs, but that may very well be a pipe dream. So its likely that names like Hudler, Wideman, Jones, Hiller, Ramo, and Russell may get bandied about in order to procure more picks this summer.

Still its Toronna coming to town. The Dome will be filled with the emigre population or those poor souls who grew up cheering for the Leafs and haven't quite realized Calgary is home. Real Flames fans always relish the thought of burning a maple leaf.

Game time is at 7:00 p.m. MST on SNW, 9:00 p.m. somewhere else on SNO.

Easy Wilson.
Your Honorary Flames Fan card can be revoked faster then you can type Neon Dion.

This matter will go before the Flames Forum Council.

Aw jeez...not again.

I always cheer for your guys except when they play my Leafs. I throw myself upon the mercy of the council.

I'm too lazy/busy to write something new so here's a re- run from Dec.2014. Nothin' much has changed  Cool Mischief



In honour of our Eastern brethren from Toronto, the centre of the hockey universe and from whenst all media flows, I have composed a song of tribute as our teams are about to meet :

It's only make beLeaf
(sung to the tune by Conway Twitty – inventor of Twitter)
link to original




Maple Leafs fans everywhere
they think we really care.
But the rest they can't deceive
We know it's only make beLEEEEEaaaaf!

Our one and only prayer
is that they'll go nowhere.
For Flames our dreams come true
a Stanley Cup or two.

No one will ever know
how much the Leafs will blow
Our only prayer will be
we beat them easily
cuz they're oOOOOoonly Make beLeafs
(make be LEEEEaaaafs!)
[Image: %3E]

Our hopes just might come true.
Flames make the playoffs too.
The Leafs are living proof
You can't win with Phaneuf.

Their fate they can't control.
Their team just has no soul.
Our only prayer will be
he's there for eternity!
Cuz he's just a MAAAaaake beLEEEEEaaaf!
(make be LEEEEaaaaf!)

Our one and only prayer
is that the ref's are fair.
The Flames will go for broke 
and make Don Cherry choke.

Then the whole world will know
how much they really blow.
They'll never win the cup,
they might as well give up,
cuz they ARRRRRRE the Make beeeeeeLEEEEEaaaaaafs!
(make be LEEEEaaaafs!)

{R.I.P. Mr. Twitty. Thanks for the songs.}

You know that may be a bit severe. Its only his second offence. And our economy is slowing a bit...

Yabut, we got lots of the stuff! We may as well bring back some old traditions. Why, I'd even bet the Donald might want to start this tradition.

That is how we roll over here this year.  It allows for more inane and/or ane pre-game discussion.

You are the 1st to complain, so its unlike to faze us or make us change our ways.  You are welcome to use it as excuse when the Leafs lose!!  :P :P :P


Actually, no predictions here.  This is 2 teams struggling to score more than 1 goal per night over the last few weeks.  Not only that, its 2 teams with goal-tending issues.  Who knows what will happen??
