I kinda meant the Leafs, and "potential" as in "maybe he'll want a hockey team closer to home someday". ;)

Though I never knew the Penguins won it back-to-back.

The Penguins might have let a lot of talent leave town, but don't count on that with Crosby. I mean ... Mario has him living at his house for cying out loud.

Nothing short of a Canadian occupation of Pittsburgh will bring Crosby to the Leafs.

One thing that impressed me about that video was his puck skills when he had those water bottles and just random pucks lying around and he never touched one of them. Also when he had the three pucks down, everything was so smooth.

I wish I could toe drag that beautifully.

At first thought, that seems a bit odd... why is the kid who's likely getting paid millions living in someone else's house? Is Mario just a really good friend?

Okay, I just watched the video. Meh. In all honesty, the puck tricks were nothing spectacular. The kick was interesting, but that's about it.

I'm kind of fond of this a little more. :P

And when he was backhanding pucks with one hand. That is almost impossible to do. I can only think of how strong a wrist he has.

Also true story here, after one of the practices in the morning with nobody left in the arena Kovalev took a tiny hockey stick and started roofing pucks into the top of the net.

He had not noticed that there was one reporter left at the top of the arena and that reporter just couldnt believe his eyes. He ran down in amazement and asked Kovalev what he was doing. Kovalev told him not to tel anyone but he wasnt actually trying to roof the pucks, he was trying to throw them on TOP of the net!

Nothing serious. No concussion, and he'll be back in like a week.

I only watched a couple minutes of that Kovalev montage. I got annoyed by the video showing the same play 10 times each. We saw the nice goal, don't show it us 10 or 20 times.

Crosby is never coming to Toronto. To get a player of that calibre Toronto would have to fall to last in the league for a few years. And that's not happening anytime soon.

Thank God...

I never really understood the draft system. Does that mean that Buffalo or Nashville would get the last picks?

Yes, though that's only part of it.

The draft goes in opposite order of points. So the team that has the most points will draft 30th.

Though the 14 teams that don't make the playoffs are drawn in a lottery to see the draft order. So the teams that missed the playoffs can draft anywhere from 1st to 14th.

Now to confuse things even more teams that get draft pics via trades draft at the position that the original team would have.

So say Philly trades Toronto it's 1st round draft pick. Toronto would draft wherever Philly would have. (which would end up being one of the first few pics).

Clear as mud? :P

^Not to mention if Satan, er, Gary Bettman were to add another God-awful expansion team to, say, Buttcrack, Arkansas or some other non-traditional hockey town, then there would also be an expansion draft to further confuse things. But here's hoping that never happens again. :P
