It's not the post-season.
Leafs - 5 Red Wings - 4 (SO)
-The Wings, when interested, are better than any of the other 29 teams, or hell an all-star team of the rest of the league combined.
-Johan "Motherf'ing" Franzen plays for the Red Wings. I can see Toskala in two years in one of those old Nike commercials:
Unable to stop Johan Franzen, Maple Leafs goaltender Vesa Toskala is forced to become a taxi driver. "Franzen with his fancy Bauer skates. I never knew what he was going to do, go top shelf, bottom shelf, glove side, stick side! Johan Franzen exposed a weak stick hand, with his strong skating and stickhandling, I couldn't stop him. Are you Swedish sir? That's good, because I'm not picking up Swedish people."
God, what great commercials those were.
-Osgood looks worse than regular season Osgood last year.
-Except for about five minutes of each game, the Wings would rather be somewhere else. And it shows.
-Why didn't the Wings put a bid towards Jonas Gustavsson? Makes sense to me...watching the highlights, he seems to fit the bill of what he was advertised as.
-It's preseason, so why am I even making any judgments at all? Hell I only watched five minutes of the game, I should shut the f' up.
-Has an alumni team ever beat the current team in college sports? Because I think it is going to happen today. It's game time.
