A message from the desk of Eyebleaf, virtual Burke replacement (Pick 22)

First of all, the Toronto Maple Leafs would like to take a moment to thank Cycle Like The Sedins for their more than generous hospitality. It's a pleasure to take part in this most interesting endeavor.

We'd also like to make it a point NOT to congratulate the Pittsburgh Penguins. Fuck those guys; we were cheering for the Detroit Red Wings.

Without further adieu, with the 22nd pick in the Cycle Like The Sedins fantasy draft, the Toronto Maple Leafs are proud to select centre MARC SAVARD.

Savard? Interesting...

Does Savard have a brother that the virtual Burke can trade for or sign?

Rj said...

Interesting indeed. Cap hit isnt too bad either considering.

The cap hit is a BEAUTY. That's why it had to be done.

bitter much about the Pens?

Crosby is an annoying weed and seeing him with the cup was like watching your dream girl (or boy) being asked out by the most obnoxious person in school. Not to mention the last thing the NHL needs is for Gary Bettman to get his way.

Does Savard wear the C on this team (not that it will probably matter) or will there be no captain as we feel the skates Sundin left are still too big to fill??

I thought Savard would be one of those picks that would plummet to the second round. This seems about right (who would have thought a few years ago that Savard would be drafted before Joe Thornton?) though.

@ Cassie: Not bitter. Just didn't want the over-the-top tankage to be awarded.

@ RJ: We were finally able to say goodbye to Mats back in February. It's time to name a new Captain, and I think Savard is certainly worthy.
