October 9th – Hockey night in Canada

I could not post an entire month of ‘News & Views’ without devoting at least one day to Canada’s favourite sport and one of Canada’s favourite teams.   According to this news report, Leaf fans have reason to head into the season with some realistic hope for victory this year.

Also a fan💞

I have to admit that I am not much of an expert on any sport, including hockey.  When I met Dan, he was playing on a couple of teams. His main one was The Raiders. To this day, most of them stay in touch and get together on occasion. I went to watch a few of their games. I still managed not to learn a lot about hockey, but I did discover that Dan was a decent hockey player! 🏒

So why, is there hopes for the Leafs this year, despite their previous years of less than stellar performances?

  • The Leafs did well in the regular season last year. It didn’t translate into the finals but it is something to build on.
  • They have a handful of elite top end players.
  • This is the first full season for coach Sheldon Keefe.
  • The season schedule works to their advantage. With the odds in their favour for the first few games it puts momentum on their side.
  • Talented prospects… Nick Ritchie, Michael Bunting, Andrej Kate, and David Kampf

Here is to wishing the Leafs all the best in the coming season. For the fans out there, keep the faith! This could be the year!

  1. My husband was born and raised in the GTA (greater Toronto area) and is a die-hard Leafs fan and likely always will be. Like you I am not much of a sports fan but I was happy to see them better last year. Hopefully this will be their year – it’s been a very long drought!

  2. I enjoy football and have my favorite teams, but I have never watched hockey so I know nothing about it. It is great that their are so many different sports so that we each can have our favorites. Very nice photos.
