Toronto Maple Leafs – rough start to their Season. First eight games were loses. Then hope was born... we got Phil Kessel of the Boston Bruins! Haven’t won the cup since 1967 – yes, I was only 5 years old. People laugh. Leaf jokes are now hotter than Newfie jokes!

Things are changing, so much so that in 2014 the Leafs will be the Stanley Cup champions! Not only that, they will be the reigning champions for six consecutive years, losing to the Carolina Hurricane in 2020! We’ll raise an eyebrow and ask, "Washington Capitals...are they a hockey team?"

My predictions and "prophecies" are about as plausible as Messiah showing up in a barn. My ludicrous musings about the hockey world five years from now would seem as likely as Isaiah’s.
