The hockey scribes in the little city that can't are giddy with the prospects for the new season now that their Leafs are undefeated after three games.
Hmm... when has that ever happened before?
Oh, not since two years ago, when they opened with three straight wins and finished October at the top of their division.
Remember how that season ended?
I know, I've blocked it out too, but I looked it up; out of the playoffs, lost 10 of their last 11 games, and poor Ron Wilson got tossed over the side mere months after signing a contract extension.
So lets not get too enthusiastic with the superlatives, Toronto sports-writers. October isn't nearly as important in hockey as it is in baseball.
