The Monster, Doc, Great One and Two Words: Viktor Stalberg

notepadIt's Saturday morning, I'm sipping my coffee and about to head to High Park. This is the perfect time to throw down a sports smörgåsbord.

The Monster
Jonas "The Monster" Gustavsson made his preseason debut for the Leafs last night and he looked awesome. He played half the game and didn't allow the Red Wings to beat him once. It's tough to look any better than that. I'm excited about The Monster, because that is an absolutely fantastic nickname.

Doc
Roy Halladay, the best starting pitcher we've ever had, made what may have been his final start in Toronto as a member of the Blue Jays. It was a gem. He threw his major-league leading eighth complete game in a 5-0 win over the Seattle Mariners. Thank you, Roy.

The Great One
I grew up idolizing Wayne Gretzky. He's the best hockey player I've ever seen. This week has been tough for us Gretzky fans. The Great One deserved a better fate.

Two Words: Viktor Stalberg
Those are the words I used to close my 2009 Training Camp Roster analysis. I will use them again. Viktor Stalberg. That is all.
