It's just fun to remember how Saku consistently outplayed him. That said, fair or not, the Sharks' annual playoff implosions will for a long time be tied to its leadership group, and that evidently includes Thornton.

What about reminiscing about those glorious playoff days when Thornton was a Bruin and Saku would drive him batty throughout the series, ultimately keeping him off the scoresheet and etching the first of Jumbo Joe's post-season failures into his NHL epitaph?

Didn't you hear? They also changed from Mars bars to Snickers in the vending machine.

Hiya, Luke. Until the Leafs' players come up with a sensible reason to explain their ditching the salute, I'll continue to think it a juvenile and seriously ill-advised decision. The salute itself isn't a big deal for me, but once you start it, you better present a very good reason to stop it.

Hey, front. Didn't see you around last night, but figured you would have been happy yesterday to see Kingston boy Allen join the good guys.

Even when they win, they lose. "Darren Dreger @DarrenDreger · 1h 1 hour ago Everyday in Tor it's something. Today, outrage because the Leafs ditched the stick salute to the fans. Player decision. Coaches didn't know. " Hard to explain this off as anything but a petulant response to a couple of yahoos tossing their sweaters onto the ice.

Looking elsewhere around the league this evening... The Flyers lose again, 3-2, this time at home to the Wild. I'd steer clear of Hextall in the lunch room for a while. Panthers currently up 1-0 on the Sharks, in San Jose. Are the Sharks pulling a 'Costanza' this year by 'doing the opposite'? Wet the bed in the regular season and run the table in the playoffs? In Calgary, Flames tied 3-3 with the Blackhawks. Hate to offer any praise to a team run by Brian 'Hobo Hair' Burke, but you have to hand it to them. They aren't the pushovers that their neighbours to the north continue to be.

Pierre: "Caesar, that's a FANTASTIC point. Wow, I really respect you for bringing that up. Boy, what a great point. You know, I really love your character. If someone asked me how to characterize you, I'd say your character is probably your best character trait. And I've seen that character in you since you played Tyke hockey in Mooseturds, Saskatchewan. I remember sitting on your father's lap in the stands and just being BLOWN away by your character. I really was. I'll tell you right now, Caesar, if I had got that GM job in Pittsburgh, you would have been the first guy I would have brought into the fold. What? I say that about every player/coach/scout/popcorn vendor in the league? That's because they have character. They really do."

For any 'Downton Abbey' fans, just saw Carson the butler in a scrum around Pacioretty. Neat.
