Oh Yeah, Hockey's Back...

Oh No! No, no, no, no, no, no!!! Eric Lindros has signed with the Toronto Maple Leafs. Yes, THAT Eric Lindros. The dude who is one hit away from losing what's left of his head. Good thing hockey is not a contact sport. So that makes the two key signings by the Maple Laughs two older concussion prone big centres. Oh well, it'll be kinda cool to watch Lindros in a Leafs jersey for the whole length of half his first shift. Then he'll accidentally bump into Tie Domi and be gone for the rest of the season.

Of course, the Edmonton Oilers are really my team (tho I grew up watching the Leafs), and with the new CBA, they might finally have a chance if GM Kevin Lowe doesn't completely lose his mind. Getting Chris Pronger was a wild acquisition out of nowhere, but the Oil gave up way too much for him. Then, while Peca is a good addition, I think giving up Mike York was a little costly as I think a guy like York could put up some points in the new NHL. Let's just hope they get some decent goaltending. One thing you gotta say about Lowe - he isn't afraid to pull the trigger on a trade...
