Leafs Announce Roster for 2012 Alumni Game

XXXBack in January, we had some fun speculating who would play for the Leafs in the Alumni Showdown.

The Leafs just announced their roster for this game, although they will add a few more players later. Here's who they're confirming thus far:

  • Darryl Sittler
  • Rick Vaive
  • Darcy Tucker
  • Felix Potvin
  • Mike Palmateer
  • Kevin Maguire
  • Dave Andreychuk
  • Doug Gilmour
  • Wendel Clark
  • Curtis Joseph
  • Johnny Bower
  • Ron Ellis
  • Jim McKenny

We mentioned them all, except for Kevin Maguire. That choice is a bit of a shocker. Surely Ed Olczyk can get the game off from his analyst duties to play for the blue and white. And Mats is likely sitting on his decision, as an homage to the way he left the Leafs.

What's really important, and has already been mentioned by @DownGoesBrown on Twitter, is that Bob Cole call this game.

Toronto Mike Verified as the defacto Toronto Mike

Just read that next season's Winter Classic between the Detroit Red Wings and Toronto Maple Leafs will include two alumni games, featuring around 100 players from the storied franchises.

So this list will definitely grow.

Have The Wings released a roster? If they get a bunch of the guys from the mid 90's, that could be a seriously good 'old timers' team.

I hope Bob Cole doesn't get too confused and call Johnny Bower "Darryl Sittler" Too bad they can't Foster and/or Bill Hewitt to call the game.
