Sweet action for kids 'n' cretins. Marjoram and capers.

NHL 2021

Post by Kimmelweck »

It will be a nice distraction to have hockey back this week, so I thought I’d start a new thread for the NHL 2021 season. In the middle of winter, when the dark of night descends early, there’s nothing like the warm glow of the ice on the TV screen. It’s like sitting in front of a cozy fireplace. Anyone else looking forward to the shortened season?

For your listening pleasure, I present the sweet lullaby voice of Rick Jeanneret, and one of the greatest calls in NHL history.…

Our good guy veteran/part-time fourth-line centre got waived as a paper move and is trending locally on Twitter, in case anyone was wondering how the Leafs' first week is going.

Yeah I saw the Leafs had waived Spezza. He seemed good at faceoffs at least. Wonder what the point of that move was. Salary cap related?

Also, how’s Zach Bogosian doing for you guys? He was useless in Buffalo, when he wasn't out with injury. I saw that he had a nice hit on (checks notes) William Nylander the other night though. At least they’re off to a better start than the Sabres. 10 months without game action has left us embarrassingly out of shape.

Yeah, it was cap-related maneuvering to allow get him some days off and bring up taxi squad players when he's waiver-exempt.

Bogo has been... not great, but not an outright disaster so far. Excited to see what Lehtonen can do tonight — hope he lives up to the billing.

Bogo never lived up to expectations here, but he wasn’t the worst of our problems. At his current price he’s probably an ok vet presence. Hopefully he works out for Toronto. Real nice guy and as I understand he still does some charity stuff in the Buffalo area.
