Beware the Deadly Tree

leafsSo... Stan Lee is creating superheroes for each team in the NHL. According to the NHL, "these 30 Guardians will be unveiled together in a special presentation during the 2011 NHL All-Star Game on Jan. 30 in Raleigh, N.C."

Pretty cool. I can't wait to see what superhero my Leafs get!

Oh... it's a tree. A giant walking and talking tree. Nevermind.

But it grows wood at will.
And sends out sap bombs.

It's more than just a tree.

Leafs #6: A league leading scorer from 1929 who retired after a brain injury during a game with Boston in December 1933. Go NHL Go.

... I should have kept reading. Ace Bailey's injury was the NHL's first mid-season benefit game catalyst towards its annual All-star game.

CQ: yes, one of only 2 numbers retired by the franchise. In this instance however, the 6 refers to the original six. It's on the other o6 guardians too.

Original six number ... except for Detroit. They should have instead used the number of Stanley Cup Finals appearances for most of these guardians.

Can we get a real Guardian of the NHL because it's a shit show down there in NYC with this bozo running the show?

I guess it's Kryptonite is root rot.

If the Leafs' "superhero" was supposed to reflect the present, he would be made of rock, or at least have rock hands, legs and feet.

I love the "immovable object" bit. Its perfect. As in, "not moving forward anytime soon".

So much deadwood surrounds the Leafs, this seems to be a fitting character for MLSE.

Perfect. Deep roots but withering, sorry-looking branches reaching out in desperation. Still, for some reason the neighbourhood still shows up to look at it. Sad.
