TIL: the |g| in Swedish is more like a |y| if there is a soft vowel in front of it, which really wrinkles my brain when I think of all the -berg names.

If they're both 50% as good as Karlsson you put them together and get 1 Karlsson.

Wow. You're right.

Then when we draft Brannstrom we'll have TWO Karlssons.

Borgman was a teammate of Brannstrom, btw, so our scouts have definitely been watching.

I mean I've already ordered my jersey so they better have been.

Suppose it's possible they signed Borgman by mistake than?

Not unheard of in these here circles.

The Finger/Sauer story has to be one of the greatest Leafs-stories ever. Because it's 100% true. There's no way it isn't. I wish one day we get Finger's (or his agents) perspective of what happened.

Lou probably signed him because he likes all of those depressing black and white movies he made.

Isn't the architect of this deal still on our payroll?

See, I never bought that story. I always thought that Finger was a relatively young UFA coming off a year where he had pretty decent numbers(in the most superficial categories but still) and that was the sort of thing an old school guy would go for, senile or no.

I think we may be kidding ourselves if we think current GMs wouldn't do the same thing.

None of the stuff about Finger being some great shutdown defenceman or even being used as a shutdown defensemen lined up though. SOMETHING there was screwy.

And he wasn't even that bad on the Leafs -- no worse than the 6/7 guys we have now -- just 4x or 5x overpaid.
