You know, ZBBM, I think you mentioned this in another thread, but let's wait until the Leafs actually win a Stanley Cup before we start anointing Dubas, or Shanahan.

Yes, and relevant to the media, there are more than a few who have made a career dining out on the "Leafs have been a failure for so long" trope ... and they will be right there again, crowing, if the Leafs don't win it all this year.

Can you imagine the schadenfreude (and not just on the Island) if we get booted in the first round again?

The pressure was always going to be higher this next season.  It went up exponentially with JT.  We'll see who rises to the occasion.

Darren Millard is leaving Sportsnet. I wonder where he's going? Was happy to see Pierre McGuire go but I actually like Millard.

Meh. I always found him painstakingly bland. I get HNIC isn't the institution it once was but I would have hated to see him replace MacLean one day.

Yeah, nothing against the guy or anything but I can't ever recall thinking he ever really added or detracted from a show. Maybe that's what some people want out of their hosts but I think it's fairly replaceable.

I listened to him a lot on the FAN590 over the lunch hour. He was good, better then most hockey pucks who report these days. I would guess he is going to US programming in some capacity.

Yeah, which means the end of Biscuits unfortunately.

Let's not beat around the bush, Millard is bad.

Lozo might genuinely be my favourite hockey writer right now, so it's a bummer if this means he won't be producing anymore pieces. But I have been eagerly waiting to see what Katie Nolan does next so it's promising that he'll be involved with that.

Hey gang, have you watched Sportsnet's reasonably competent NHL coverage and thought to yourself "I think they probably would make a good burger", well, do I have the restaurant who'll charge you eight bucks for a pint of Bud Light for you!
