    The Leafs are 8-10 years away. There is not a single player on their team that could be a huge cog on a championship team... ~~ Plekanec at the Disco ~~

    I cheer for likeable players, that's why I am smitten by our current Habs, these are a group of guys, for the most part, you'd welcome into your home. Golf takes that to a much higher level, PGA players donate more to charitable causes than NHL, NBA, MLB, and NFL combined and has for many years. These guys are built on honour, the game demands it, the fans demand it, and Tiger is an atrocity to the time honoured tradition of gentlemanly behaviour on and off the course. Listen to Tom Watson speak, he oozes class and humility. Of course, Tom is my favourite, so I'm extremely biased. ~~ Plekanec at the Disco ~~

    My favourite is Tom Watson, I'm only 34 so I only watched reruns of Jack (back when golf network had amazing historical ,programming) but his game was phenomenal, worked the ball. I love the old game, guys worked the ball far more often, not it is a distance game with less dog legs and shot shaping off the tee, every player is primarily a draw and high ball player, it's disappointing. Bubba is a throw back. But yeah, Tiger at his peak was the best clutch putter I have seen. His driving was never that good, even in his dominant years, but his iron play from the rough was,legendary and his recovery around the green was phenomenal (thanks to putting as much as chipping). It's tough to argue with him being among the best during his peak.... I just think that Jack was dominant in an era of Hall of Fame players.... Tiger had Phil, who is likely outside the top 10 of all time while Jack competed against 4-5 of,the top 10 ever ~~ Plekanec at the Disco ~~

    Depends on how an individual watches the game.. If you're a "puck watcher" you will under appreciate Plek, but, if you watch players (which I tend to do) you will notice all the intricacies of Pleks game. ~~ Plekanec at the Disco ~~

    I had to give up on Hockey Central at Noon, I still DVR it but end up skipping most of it... Today they spent most of the time speaking about the Yotes, Oil, Leafs, Sabers... Is this what hockey coverage has come to? Focus on the worst while ignoring the best! We had Rags vs Habs, Bruins vs Isles, and Wings vs Bolts... All the best teams in the East playing each other, can a fan ask for anything better.,... And the national show by the network that "owns" hockey fails to present the sport with a focus on elite teams. It's very troublesome. MLB only covers the Yanks when they're on top, NFL is the same with the Cowboys and Giants, but here in Canada the F***** Leafs are driven down our throat. Sorry for venting, but there were some awesome games last night. ~~ Plekanec at the Disco ~~

    Naw, during the Jack area there was also Travino, Seve, Norman... Who in the Tiger era (including himself) had the up and down % of Watson? Driving accuracy + distance of Norman, putts made 10-20' of Travino? The best players of all time played along side Jack. Go to Wikipedia and look up Watson and how many times he was runner up to Jack in majors.. And how many times Jack was runner up in majors,and who he was behind.... All stats (both wins and the timeless putting, driving, recovery, and ball striking) favour Jack. Tiger may have had the best 24 month stretch in PGA history from a wins perspective, but he is NOT the best ever, just in the conversation. ~~ Plekanec at the Disco ~~

    Don't attack me please... But... Is my most despised talking head,on Sportsnet finally coming around? Kypreos was upset the Weiss goal was called off last night, when asked if the Habs and Rags were the two best teams in the East he said "nobody would be surprised if either the Rangers or Habs made it out of the East in the playoffs." What gives? ~~ Plekanec at the Disco ~~

    Bowen also said its very tough these days and it will be a painful second half... He doesn't think they have a shot at the playoffs.. At least he's realistic. ~~ Plekanec at the Disco ~~
