Jesus H. Christ, that Mike Babcock is an intense looking man. Look at those goddamn eyes. Forget Detroit, Babcock looks exactly like the kind of no-nonsense-or-I-will-cut-you sociopath the Toronto Maple Leafs need manning their bench.
Or maybe he isn't. I don't know. What do I know? Nothing. I'm just a blogger. You guys though - the readers - you're the smart ones. Help me out.

No Nazem Kadri, Joffrey Lupul or Peter Holland. That's not to make excuses for the Toronto Maple Leafs, who were defeated 3-1 this evening by the Minnesota Wild, but it certainly made things more difficult. Without them, the Leafs ran lines that played well enough but severely lacked an offensive spark.

The Leafs have travelled to the far and frigid North i.e. Minnesota to take on the Wild tonight, and they'll be doing it with as many as three regulars out of the lineup.
Joffrey Lupul is on the IR, Peter Holland is banged up, and Nazem Kadri is a gametime decision. To patch together their forward lines Toronto has called up Greg McKegg, pictured above looking all sexy and/or lazy.

I'm no insider, nor do I have any insider information, but I can all but guarantee that Canadian head coach Benoit Groulx's message to his players today was "don't take Denmark lightly".

I don't even want to talk about the game. That's partly because I already wrote the Team Canada postgame piece earlier and it's also New Years Eve and such, but mostly because all I want to talk about is Phil Kessel. Sweet Baby Phil, scoring all those goals. He's the best.
