What did you all think of missing the first 10 mins of the home opener last year..which was the first game in over the year just to see the Leafs lose in a shootout.
Come on, it was the first shootout in NHL history. It was a good reason to miss the first 10 minutes. .

How can anyone concentrate on the issue at hand with that staring them in the face? It's like a nasty car-wreck version of Fred's bouncy little number.
