With Detroit now out of the picture, it's entirely gratifying to anticipate the Stanley Cup fight between Disney and Ottawa. I'll be cheering on the Sens, a team that has experienced its share of management, ownership and Players' Association grief. It could be argued that these trials are just part and parcel with belonging to the league, but anyone who lives near Toronto knows otherwise. If you wear a blue and white jersey, you are blessed with everything except a team that bothers itself with winning games.
But who would waste a thought on the Leaves right now, when the league's two best teams are gearing up for a proper showdown? Not I.
