Toronto Stirs Some Shit Up: But It Still Won’t Help Them

A few days ago, I got a mobile update from TSN saying that Toronto had acquired Dion Phaneuf from Calgary. No other information was released in that text message, so I was stuck sitting on the bus with a huge WTF look on my face, and no one to share my confusion with. Only an half an hour later, I got another message. This one told me they got J.S Giguere.

First Trade:

To Toronto:

Dion Phaneuf, Fredrik Sjoatrom and Keith Aulie

To Calgary:

Niklas Hagman, Ian White, Matt Stajan and Jamal Mayers

Second Trade:

To Toronto:

J.S. Giguere

To Anaheim:

Vesa Toskala and Jason Blake

So after a short panic attack on the bus thinking that Toronto was a threat to the Sens holy awesome-ness, I realized, FACK THAT, Toronto has only won 17 games. Ottawa has won 31. So even with a Stanley Cup stealing winning goaltender and an All-Star defenseman, Toronto still has shit chance of making it anywhere this season. But it does put a question mark for next season. Throughout the years, Ottawa has always dominated Toronto during the season, but when it came time for the playoffs, Toronto always ended up on the winning end. What if this trade is enough to guarantee a playoff spot for the team next year? Let’s pray it’s not. Toronto’s cursed, and I refuse to believe that switching around a few guys is going to change much.
