It's So Funny and Yet So Painful

From 197 feet away, Vesa Toskala cannot stop the unrelenting machine that is the New York Islanders. Our master plan to secure a top 3 draft pick is succeeding, and we are making you look silly in the process. Actually, the only silly part is that the Leafs are still considered in the playoff hunt, but I guess at this point anything is possible.

Do you want to know the punchline of this joke? Sure you do. This was the only goal the Islanders scored all night in a 3-1 home loss to Toronto. It took a gift of a goal just to get on the scoreboard against the team that is directly ahead of you in the standings. I'm also betting it will be Rob Davison's only goal in an Islander uni. Any takers?

In summation -- "Sigh... When's the draft?"


  1. What a thing of beauty. Too bad it was by the Islanders, rather than ON the Islanders ...

  2. I don't know what's more embarrassing, that or the sparse crowd.

    I also wonder what McCabe said to him after the goal? Words of wisdom?

  3. Poor Vesa, that was painful.
    I'm so glad you didn't do that while you were with the Sharks.

  4. In summation -- "Sigh... When's the draft?"

    Draft, schmaft. (famous last words)
