LT asked me to comment on the Canadian political situation. My brother sent me this…
“Canada was stunned Monday when it was announced that The Stanley Cup will
be awarded to the Toronto Maple Leafs, possibly as early as December 6th.
The cup will be stripped from 2008 playoff champions the Detroit Red Wings
and be awarded to the Leafs, who didn’t even make the playoffs.
How is this possible, Canadians ask?
Well, the Leafs have formed a coalition with eastern conference
semifinalists the Montreal Canadians, and conference quarter finalists the
Ottawa Senators, now outnumbering the Red Wings.
According to current Leaf coach Ron Wilson “the Red Wings have lost the
confidence of the league and should hand the cup over immediately to our
NHL commissioner Gary Bettman is cutting short a European trip to try to
resolve the unprecedented hockey crisis that could force a second playoff
series, or see an opposing team coalition take the cup.”
