Thanks to everybody who watched the last video and congrats to the winners!
Ready for the next one? You could win a Bobby Ryan game-used jersey card!

NHL lockout be damned! Let's do this!
Just like the video says: Leave a comment and you'll be chosen at random to recieve one of either a hockey card with pieces of game-used jersey from four different former Leafs (Matt Stajan, Vesa Toskala, Luke Schenn, and Jason Blake), or a card atuographed by current Leafs captain Dion Phaneuf.

Why didn't Francois Allaire do interviews all the time?
Very often in sports reporting, people give vague answers to questions. The quotes are nice to have because of the name attached to them, and they're great for filling up pages, but that doesn't mean they always add actual value or substance to the story. For that very reason, Francois Allaire's quotes from Michael Trakos' peice in the National Post are a bit jarring.
"To be honest, I don't think the Leafs need a goalie coach. I think they have enough of them. They have two or three guys who were making decisions with the goalies. In the NHL, that's not the way it works. If that's the way they want to operate, then I'm not there."
That cool breeze you just felt was the breath of fresh air that, that quote was. There's just something about being blunt and up front that I love. They don't even need a goalie coach?

The great thing about covering hockey for a living is sometimes you get to play videogames for a living, too!
I sit down and play NHL 13 with the producer of game, Sean "Rammer" Ramjagsingh - who is 6'11", by the way. Have the Leafs found their new number one centre?!?!
Anyway, Rammer explains a lot of the game's new features, shows some great, new in-game footage, and I score two goals on him, including a goal on the Flyers by James van Riemsdyk. That made me really happy. Enjoy!
