Tomorrow the Buds take on the Anaheim Ducks at 7 ET.
Both teams have struggled to start the season, one was expected to, the other....not so much.
The ducks are a strong team beaming with young stars Getzlaf and Perry, both future superstars. And of course they boast probably the best d-core in the league,with the best pairing I've ever seen.
On the other side, the Leafs are the polar opposite.
One of the weakest teams in the league, the Leafs have played the way everyone expected, except that one guy who said they'd make the playoffs.
That aside, there have been a few bright spots so far.
The trio of Hagman-GrabO-Tlusty/Kuulie has been the best line on the leafs. They have one point between the three but they creat somthing every time they're on the ice. Also, the Buds have 4 more games until they must make a decision about Schenn and each and every game he convinces me more and more that he belongs on the team. Him and Frogren have become the shutdown duo and have been the best on the blueline.
With all that said, the big story of the game will be the resurrection of the Burke-to-Toronto rumours.
The current GM of the Ducks has turned down a contract extension to stay in Anaheim and many say he is going to take over Clif's post at the end of the season or perhaps before that. If the (don't call me mighty) Ducks keep under-performing like this maby we could see Burkie up in the box at the ACC more often.
The Leafs official website is streaming the game free, ill post the link tomorrow.
Side Note: The new season of Kenny Vs. Spenny started tonight, anyone get to catch it?
