Well done Leafs and I hope the Jets got a nice wake-up call out of the deal.
So much for the vaunted pre-season power play.

McDavid with the 1st Hat trick by an Oiler on opening night. He's faster than last year too.

Didn't realize Leafs picked up Marleau. Don't know if you Leafers have watched him much, but he's been awesome since day 1 with the Sharks. He's getting up there in age, but he'll make stuff happen. Good depth signing for you guys.

I still hate the Leafs though...haha

That was great but it made me nervous, what happens if the guy is ever out? Team better be just as good and step up.
I didn't realize the Flames picked up Smith, damn I thought he was great with a terrible team around him last season, he played well tonight. They got Jagr too, should be interesting.
Leafs blow.

It seems that hatricks are easy to score when it's the first game of the season. Hatricks for everyone! Now let's watch some highlights of Pittsburgh getting smashed 10-1.

Leafs offense looks to be the real deal...I was really concerned with the sophomore jinx.
Defense is still shaky though. Andersen better come up big and stay healthy.

Mcdavid is a superstar. I don't know if I'm a believer in the Oilers, but saying that this kid is the "next Crosby" IMO doesn't do him justice. But that will be diminished if he isn't on a team that can legitimately challenge for Cups (not just make the playoffs). very likeable guy as well.

This could be a real strong year for Canadian teams for a change. Honestly the only ones that IMO will struggle to keep up, are MTL and Van. Maybe WPG.
The rest (TML, CAL, EDM, OTT) should be exciting.

I'm not sure what Oiler games are like when they visit the Leafs at the ACC (ACK? :rolleyes:), but it gets interesting here in Edmonton when you guys visit Edmonton. Half the rink is Oil fans, other half Leafs.....at least it was that way in the Decade of Darkness. Not so sure now though. I'd love to see the Oil meet the Leafs in the finals one day though. That would be f***ing special indeed.

The goalie on my beer league team moved out here from TO a few years ago...yes, he's a Leaves fan. We had a game Wednesday night and he strolled into the dressing room with a shit-eating grin on his face after his beloved Leaves dismantled the Jets. He proceeded to have one of the worst games I've seen him play since he's played with us...it was painful to watch. Afterwards we suggested he ditch the team jersey and wear a Leaves jersey instead as opposing players (not much love for the Leaves out here) might be excited to hit him square in the maple leaf, over and over again! He chuckled a little and then left. We'll see what jersey he wears next game...

TML and MTL fans take the cake for being the most annoying.
Although Van fans were almost up there too when they had a decent team.

I don't like Van fans the most, or team for that matter. I've worked with Leaf fans and it's been just fine but I still like to carry out the healthy part of the rivalry.

Um, you do realize that typing 'Leaves' as if it is the correct spelling simply demonstrates that you don't know how to spell?

If using the correct pluralisation of 'leaf' is offensive to you then I just might carry on being offensive to make my grade four teacher proud.;)
