With roughly 48 hours until opening night I thought it would be a good idea to set up the new season....by looking at last years top 10 moments.
Ummm...ok. Here we go.
Doug Gilmour Night
I just needed a reason to post this video.
Ron Wilson bitch slaps Howard Berger
1:30 - 2:42
The most anticipated fight since Ali/Frasier.
Ok...maybe Leeman/Savard. You know what I mean.
Brian Burke comes aboard.
Ahahaha...I often wonder if Bryan Murray looked around after that exchange and expected Ashton Kutcher to turn the corner. "You've been PUNKED!"
Grabovski/Kostitsyn and Grabovski/linesman
I love the "Nixon" at the end.
Mark Bell on Daniel Alfredsson
Wait...what?? This didn't happen last year? Really???
Oh, well. It's posted now. I'm really lazy, so i'll just leave it.
Drafting Nazem Kadri
I especially loved when the people who passed a gall stone when the Leafs drafted Kadri are the same ones who now claim the Leafs can't make the playoffs without him.
Signing Jonas Gustavsson
Shoring up the Leafs goaltending was a priority this past off-season. If the first 3periods of Gustavsson's career are any indication then Burke and co. hit a homerun.
Wendel Clark Night
Wendel Clark can kill two stones with one bird.
Luke Schenn destroys Evgeni Malkin then eats Tyler Kennedy.
I'm not kidding. He literally ate Kennedy. Look at Pittsburgh's lineup this year. He's not even there.
Nik Hagman Goal
Ok so it's the Panthers, which diminishes the "wow" a little bit, but the Leafs weren't exactly the '85 Oilers last year.
