Damien squeaked an interesting post on to his blog today. He had info I hadn’t seen on the Monster’s visit to Toronto and provided some great insight into the savvy of one Brian Burke.
“When Gustavsson walked into the home dressing room of the Air Canada Centre last Saturday, he was greeted by the jerseys of all the Leaf goaltenders over the years, from Johnny Bower to Turk Broda to Terry Sawchuk to Felix Potvin to Curtis Joseph with, of course, a No. 50 with the name “Gustavsson” occupying the final stall. Gustavsson also toured some local real estate and even saw a local nursing facility where his girlfriend of two years, a registered nurse who missed the trip because of a terrible fear of flying, may find employment.”
Now that is cool. No, maybe the buds didn’t have all that bling that the other teams had. No he didn’t meat a former US President or throw out the first pitch at a baseball game, but he it sounds like Burke put on one hell of a hockey show for Gustavsson. That’s pretty damn cool if you ask me.
