Newsday offbase on Leafs and Bolts~Hanky the mind reader

So Mark Hermann has decided to take a look at the NHL off season now that it is coming to a close and point out some winners and losers. Most are expected, included is the stab at the Leafs, but the banter that follow is not only lame, but purely moronic:

“Loss: The Maple Leafs have been in limbo all summer and they’re still over a barrel over Mats Sundin, who hasn’t made up his mind whether he is going to play with them, with the Rangers, with the Flyers or not play at all.”

There are lots of things you can say (and be negative as all hell too) about the leafs off season, but limbo??? They have added 10 players! Is that Limbo? They are stuck in a PR pissing match with Sundin, but I would hardly say he has held them up. Not once has Cliff said, if only we had an answer from Mats so we could do other things. Limbo??? Maybe, just maybe you should look at the facts before writing such a dumb commentary. If you want to bash the buds there is lots you can pick on…

it’s funny how he lists Tampa Bay as a winner, yet the folks who lay the dough in vegas have the bolts at 45-1 to win the cup (the buds are at 40-1 but who is surprised about that?) :”Win: Hockey could be hot in Tampa Bay again, what with the arrival of No. 1 lottery pick Steven Stamkos and new coach Barry Melrose. Check this: If you Google Melrose, you find a link to YouTube, showing a Melrose-Clark Gillies fight.”

Is anyone really surprised that Hanky got caught plagiarizing? We have been calling him a fraud for some time. The audasity of claiming a family emergency all the while positing on a message board. In any event, did you call his latest post this am….The amazing kreskin has actually made it into Sundin’s head to read his mind…:

“Although Mats is still largely under the belief that he is not going to decide until after camp starts I am hearing several murmurs that the Rangers are still trying to convince him otherwise and that the Rangers apparent cap issues are “completely manageable if need be.”

Although he is still under the belief???? Sorry, can’t stop laughing. “Sources in Mat’s head are telling me”…..

Simmons suggested it over the weekend… Has JP made it impossible to fire him now? I say JP’s future is tied to Godfrey’s. If Paul leaves JP is toast.
