And speaking of Vesa Toskala – this should be a continuing column of its own – the brewing controversy in Toronto – Monster vs. Toskala. It will be interesting to see which goalie gets the start against Ottawa tonight.
He bought some of the furniture for his downtown apartment at IKEA and assembled it himself. “Not maybe the most fancy,” the Maple Leafs’ rookie netminder said. “But it’s enough for me and it’s a good price.”
