Hey the Maple Leafs seem to have picked up speed and are ready to take a crack at the playoffs! It seems to be a lot more exciting than last year and last year was actually great! Buffalo seems to be all conquering and will be one of the favs to win the Cup. Pittsburgh seems to have the team of the future - let them come to Hamilton. I even heard that Ballsile wants to build a new stadium in Kitchener-Waterloo. Nah, Hamilton is cool! Although my friends in Winnipeg want a team there. And what about Quebec City?


On December 2, 2005 I wrote this Leafs recap following a 4-0 win over the Panthers. You'll see we were 15-9-3 at the time. We all know what happened last season. Still, I'm cautiously optimistic.

I wouldn't bet on a team coming to Hamilton. As neat as it would be, I can't imagine it happening.

I'd be surprised if it happened too, Mike, to be honest. That's a bit too close to Leaf territory and well, problems a-plenty could result from that. I don't know that the same could be said for Buffalo, but I've heard the speculation that a second team that close by could hurt their market, too.

Y? I mean, Toronto, Missisauga, Oshawa & area to the north could continue to support the Leafs. Hamilton, London & area South & West of it would suppport the new team. Come'on, bring a few more teams back to Canada. It's ridiculous that Florida has two teams & California. Nashville, Pheonix, Atlanta..., get my drift??? Location, Location, Location

I watched that Leafs - Panthers game the other day and there was nobody in the stands.

You and I would both love to see a team return to Winnipeg and Quebec City. I'd enjoy a team in Hamilton, too. There are other factors at play here, though. Corporate support, US television markets, etc...
