GAME DAY: Toronto Maple Leafs
Rumor has it that Carlton the Bear has been talking some serious trash about the Thrashers. He always was an abrasive Arctic creature.
The big mega-interesting news story surrounding this game, the first of the season between these two teams, is something to do with former Leafs Nik Antropov (who we signed this past summer under orders from Ilya Kovalchuk) and Pavel Kubina (for whom we hilariously traded Garnet Exelby). They will be booed.
Watch out for a sudden explosion in "So is Kovalchuk gonna re-sign? HMMMM? HEEENNGH?" stories in the regular Canadian press.
