Most minutes by a team in a season? 
4 out of the Leafs first 6 games have gone into OT. This makes me wonder... is there some standing record for the most minutes played by an NHL team in a season?

Congrats to Mats on the stellar goal! I couldn't watch the game but it really doesn't get much better than that for a 500th goal... shorthanded... in OT... to complete a hat trick!

And finally... GO TIGERS!!! They took out the big guns in NY so they should be able to make short work of their slow, overshadowed cousin, the Mets.

No More Yankees!! 
Go Tigers!! Nice to see the big spenders knocked out in the first round.

It's the least we can hope for after they take our hopes for a division title away every year with their massive payroll. Heart can win in the post season but statistics will generally rule the regular season and statistically, they're pretty hard to beat.

Go Tigers!!

Has Edmonton given up? 
First they lost Pronger and Spacek. Now they're letting Peca go?

Is that just how the Oilers organization works? They only build decent players so they can sell them off rather than trying to build on their success?

Suddenly it sucks to be an Oilers fan. I never thought I'd be saying that this year!

Peca once regularly scored 20 goals a season as one of the NHL's best two-way players, but last season he had the worst production of his career scoring just nine goals and adding 14 assists in 71 games.


Ah yes... welcome to the Leafs. Where great players come to die.

Hopefully it works out well for the Leafs so us fans can convince ourselves we've got a shot at the cup again. Not making the playoffs really puts a damper on that pipedream!

And make no mistake... I'm a diehard Leafs fan. Woot!! Go Leafs Go!!

So much for the krauts. 
The Germans have been eliminated from the World Cup and, along with them, all likely chances at me winning the second round of the lunch pool I'm in.

Bloody Italians. Turns out they can play well when they're not taking bribes and fixing matches. Good on them. They deserved the win.

To add insult to injury, if Italy wins the final, they'll nudge Germany out of 2nd place for most World Cup wins, for which they are currently tied with the Azzurri.

I guess that's what they get for not scoring any freakin' goals!

Can't win all of them on penalties, you lazy bastards!

Looks like I'll have to be happy with just one free lunch.
