Cardiac Columbus almost pulls it off, the stupid Crosby criticism, and two teams force Game 7.

If I were rich, I’d go to the Stanley Cup Final.
Of course, if I were rich, the Leafs would be in the Stanley Cup Final because I would own the team and I’m a genius.
I would fly there on the team plane. I own that too, by the way.
It would have crazy high-speed Wi-Fi on the plane. I mean, even if I’m a crazy rich bajillionaire who owns an NHL team I’m still totally going to make YouTube videos.
It would have the most ballin’ menu you can find in the sky. It would serve the finest food from around the world, and more importantly, the “Steve Nachos” that the bar in my old neighborhood in Scarborough served. Oh, you don’t know what those are? Well you know how nachos always turn to goopy mush at the bottom and there are all kinds of toppings left over? Not with Steve Nachos because Steve Nachos come with extra chips! See? I’m smart. That’s how I became an NHL team-owning bajillionaire in the first place.
Here’s the problem though – I’m not an NHL team-owning bajillionaire. I am merely a blogger with a Wi-Fi connection and a pot of coffee.
Since I’m a long way away from my dream of eating Steve Nachos in the sky on my way to the Stanley Cup Final, I have looked into other ways to get there: My cool new ScotiaHockey NHL Debit Card.
First of all, it’s got a spiffy Leafs logo on it. I’d show you my card but that’d be dumb. Tell you what – here’s one that looks just like it.

The Kontinental Hockey League is a magical place. The fans are fewer, but they're louder. The players are often paid more than they'd make in North America, but as a whole, the teams spend less. Ilya Kovalchuk and Alexander Radulov are still people that exist to be good at winning hockey games. And, most importantly, instead of the Stanley Cup, they play for the Gagarin Cup. This year, Metallurg Magnitogorsk is taking on Lev Praha, in a series that's about to go to a 7th and deciding game on Wednesday.
I was bored, so I took a look at some of the connections these two teams have to the Leafs.

The Ducks come back, the Blackhawks finish the Blues, and the Rangers are starting to look like contenders.

I need to use the "save draft" button more. I wrote a really long mailbag. Answered a lot of questions. Deleted them as I answered them. It was actually one of my better ones yet, and upwards of 2000 words long. I clicked publish. Suddenly, -ZAP-. It's gone.
It could be worse. I could've been in an elevator and got stuck. Wait! That happened earlier this week. For half an hour. I'm this close to going Amish. Anyway, here's my second attempt at a mailbag tonight:
