It's almost too easy that a Star article that needs perspective brings up a guy called "Fisk".
The Toronto Maple Leafs dropped an absolute heartbreaker in Pittsburgh last night. I'm not too interested in re-hashing it, and despite Toronto blowing a 4-1 third period lead, they managed a point out of a road game against one of the best teams in the East, and are still well in the playoff race.

Don Cherry has never taken issue with being the centre of attention. With his weekly appearance on CBC's Hockey Night in Canada's first intermission segment, Cherry takes to his soapbox to discuss his own personal appearances, vendettas and politics in front of a large national audience forgoing any quality analysis from the first two periods.

Poor Scott Gomez. From the website which asks the rhetorical question "Did Gomez score" to players naming him the 3rd most overrated player in hockey, it seems like there are a lot of hockey fans, players and media who don't appreciate his talent.

As mentioned earlier at The Leafs Nation by Danny Gray, the rumour that John-Michael Liles had re-signed a long-term deal with the Toronto Maple Leafs hit the Internet feeds this morning, securing the future for at least one current Toronto Maple Leaf. The deal was confirmed in the afternoon, with Liles signing a four-year extension worth $3.875M per.
Who is the other Leaf that this extension may effect? Mikhail Grabovski.

Dion Phaneuf, the Captain of the Toronto Maple Leafs, needs to be less selfish and must pick his spots more intelligently (if at all) when it comes to fighting. Even if his honour is at stake, it's the worst thing Phaneuf can do in any situation, as not just the team's Captain, but as its best defenseman.
His team's rivalry with the Ottawa Senators picked up for maybe the first time since Phaneuf became a Leaf.
