Normally I dont post articles but this one made me laugh due to the issues with the Canadian government right now:
Leafs Just Won The Cup
National Post Published: Friday, December 05, 2008
Canada was stunned on Monday when it was announced that the Stanley Cup will be awarded to the Toronto Maple Leafs. The cup will be taken from the 2008 playoff champions, the Detroit Red Wings and be awarded to the Leafs, who didn't even make the playoffs.
How is this possible, Canadians ask?
Well, the Leafs have formed a coalition with the Eastern Conference semifinalists, the Montreal Canadiens, and the conference quarter finalists, the Ottawa Senators, meaning they now outnumber the Red Wings for on-ice victories.
According to current Leaf coach Ron Wilson "The Red Wings have lost the confidence of the league and should hand the cup over immediately to our coalition."
NHL commissioner Gary Bettman is cutting short a European trip to try to resolve the unprecedented hockey crisis that could force a second playoff series, or see an opposing team coalition take the cup.
