In a continued effort by Brendan Shanahan and Dave Nonis to change the culture of the Toronto Maple Leafs, George Mason - known affectionately simply as GM by his family and close friends - was relieved of his concession-selling duties today.

We don't need a silly All-Star game to know who are the REAL stars of the hockey world. All we need is the power of prayer and First Star, Worst Star!

There's a lot of things that you can rip on David Clarkson for. He doesn't score a lot, he loses most of his fights, and his contract with the Leafs should be framed in the Hockey Hall of Fame to show future hockey managers what not to do. I feel bad about it too; by all accounts he's a very nice gentleman and he clearly wants to succeed.
But I need to add one more thing to the list - he might be the single least effective powerplay option in the entire league. The Leafs coaching staff has to, at some point between "three months ago" and "immediately", consider another option in his spot.

The above video was made in the year 2010, and yet it feels like nothing has changed. Except for the fact the Leafs started 1-2-1. Hell, if we want to be technical, the Leafs are still paying the player who makes a last-second cameo.
Needless to say, the Peter Horachek era hasn't started off the way that many had hoped. In fact, on the score sheet, it's been a disaster - the Leafs were just shut out for the third time in four games tonight.
