LeafsI was just checking in on Canadian Thinker when I saw Fred had posted a little tribute video for Dougie Gilmour. I have only ever owned two Maple Leaf jerseys: a #5 Bill Barilko and a #93 Doug Gilmour.

Gilmour is my favourite Leaf of all-time. That's likely true for all 30-something year old fans of the blue and white. Doug Gilmour was a great captain, a fierce competitor and he produced. Wendel Clark and Mats Sundin were great Leafs, but there was only one Killer.

Dougie will be at the Air Canada Centre tomorrow night for a sweater-raising ceremony in his honour. It's well deserved.

In my top 3 leafs . Keon Sittler and Gilmore. Keon would usally be on top for me. My favourite as kid . You know when they WON the STANLEY CUP. And I own the house he lived in in 1967. Gilmore was great though I will never forget the playoff run in 93. Wow.

I would consider having man-love with him - one of the Leaf greats.

I think tomorrow's Marlies game is Doug Gilmour bobble head day. Hooray!!!

Bromance - worst show ever.

Gilmour and Salming - the greatest Leafs ever! Unlike Elvis, I have no desire to get intimate with any of them.

I hope members of the media get Doug Gilmour bobble heads tomorrow.

Dougie was an awesome player who played every game with heart & every team he played for made a difference because of him. He deserves the honour tomorrow but still NOT Hall of Fame worthy.
TOO bad players today worry about $ - Look at Sundin in Vancouver. They have no home wins since his return. I guess he will will be a possible rental player again at 6-8M$ this season. Vancouver will probably had enough by the trading deadline.
