Ridiculous Facebook Groups
A Facebook friend just joined a group called "John Tavares must play for the Leafs". I'm watching the Leafs right now, currently tied at 2 with the Panthers, and of all the ridiculous Facebook groups I think this may be the most ludicrous.
It's not that I wouldn't like John Tavares in Toronto, in fact, it's quite the contrary. Tavares is going to be awesome, right up there in Crosby-land, and he's already a lock to go first overall in 2009. He will not be a Maple Leaf, unfortunately, no matter how many people join this Facebook group. There is no hope.
We'll never suck enough to get the first draft pick that year, because we like to wallow in that 7-10th spot in the conference. That won't get you John Tavares. The only other option is a trade with the team that ends up with the first pick in 2009, and we don't have close to enough desirable assets to pull that off. The only hope of trading for the Tavares pick is a large collection of draft picks, solid prospects and good, inexpensive commodities. So you see, John Tavares will never be a Maple Leaf.
Besides, the Leafs don't draft great players. It's true, you can look it up.
