Wow, time flies when you're losing a lot of hockey games. It's been five years to this very day since Dion Phaneuf was traded by the Calgary Flames along with Frederik Sjostrom and Keith Aulie to the Toronto Maple Leafs for Matt Stajan, Ian White, Nicklas Hagman and Jamal Mayers.

The Toronto Marlies got away with being outplayed yesterday, coming out ahead despite being outshot by over thirty. This wasn't a performance that they could repeat tonight if they wanted to go back to back. On one hand, the gap wasn't as big, but the defensive holes remained and came back to haunt them, turning a 2-0 lead into a 3-0 loss over the Utica Comets.

There are a lot of questions being asked in the photo above. David Clarkson is asking the referee "Why are you giving me a penalty? Why can't I sit on this guy?, while Matt Read is asking anyone who will listen "Why is this guy sitting on me? Why are the Leafs so, so bad?"

I have no idea what Utica's mascot is supposed to be, but I must say, he makes me appreciate Duke the Dog so much more. Being a dog has nothing to do with being the Duke of Marborough, but at least I can relate to owning a dog. This thing? Not so much. At the end of the day though, they're just mascots, and the game is what matters. In today's game, the Toronto Marlies squeaked out a 3-2 victory.

Why should the NHL continue to reward the Edmonton Oilers for on-ice failure and organizational ineptitude by giving them a better chance to select the cream of the crop at the Entry Draft while more successful teams line up behind and wait their turn? It shouldn’t.
