That is brutal. I wonder what the market for hockey is like up there? Do you think it would be able to get the viewers?

It is too bad though, because tonight Montreal vs Toronto! And of course Montreal had better win after that terrible performance that got them kicked out of the playoffs.

Unfortunetly the market for hockey is not that big, despite the sucess of the Ducks-Kings games at the o2 arena. I hope people start showing an interest in hockey more, it's so much better than football (soccer).

I mean which would you rather hear about?

Jason Blake of the Toronto Maple Leafs issued the following statement following the team?s practice Monday at Air Canada Centre:

?This morning I shared with my teammates news that I was diagnosed with Chronic Myelogenous Leukemia. It is highly-treatable, and I have begun taking a pill on a daily basis that has proven to be very effective in controlling this cancer. The prognosis, and certainly the expectations of my physician, myself and my family, is that I will live a long, full and normal life.

?This situation will not impact my ability to live my life as I otherwise would, and will not affect my ability to perform at my highest level for the Toronto Maple Leafs. I?m looking forward to my first season with the Leafs and helping our club compete for the Stanley Cup.?

Statement from Maple Leafs team doctor Noah Forman regarding Jason Blake?s medical condition:

?Jason Blake has very recently been diagnosed with Chronic Myelogenous Leukemia (CML). This is a form of leukemia (blood cancer) which is a slow growing cancer of the white blood cells. It has an incidence of 500 new cases diagnosed each year in Canada.

?It is caused by an abnormal chromosome of cells in the body's bone marrow.

Jason is in no immediate danger, as he is in the chronic phase of the disease and has been assessed by a leading authority on CML at Princess Margaret Hospital in Toronto.

He has already started treatment which consists of an oral medication taken daily with low side effects.

?We have secured opinions from numerous CML specialists confirming that with this oral medication, most patients are well controlled and lead normal lives, doing all their normal activities. Jason will be able to continue to play fully with the team and will be monitored closely by both the team's physician and his CML specialist.?

Wow, poor guy. Hope he gets better.

His wife had a cancer scare six years ago when she was 8 months pregnant. The doctors told her she had thyroid cancer, they gave her a cesarean, removed the lump and then said... "Oh, turns out it wasn't cancerous after all". Doh!

The Leafs are getting hammered. Ugh.

That news will make half of the Canadians on Neowin fairly happen though...

6-1 :ninja:

I wouldn't be joking to tell you that Vancouver is literally celebrating this like the Stanley Cup. From newspaper to radio, Vancouverites are crowing about Toronto's loss.

Luongo isn't exactly having a great night tonight.

Ouch. On the other hand, Carey Price did well enough tonight, hopefully he doesn't end up stealing away my only decent goalie in the neowin fantasy league.

The 8th goal against Vancouver was shorthanded too. Vancouver was unable to score on what appeared to be a 5-on-3.

I hope I didn't come off as arrogant- I only meant to tell you how true your observations of non-Torontonians was. I'm gleeful at the loss of the Canucks. Not a fan of either them or the Leafs; Rangers are my team.

Montreal is up against Carolina again, hope they keep their point streak alive, and Huet better play a fantastic game because I am counting on him as my goalie in the Fantasy League.

Carolina is coming on strong. I've been saying it for a while, Carolina is going to bounce back strong from last season's poor play. They just beat the Sens and killed the Leafs.

We stole Carolina's home opener from under them, I expect Carolina to come out strong against Montreal in their home opener tonight.

Have I mentioned recently that the Leafs are a very difficult team to support?

Once again we had a 4-3 lead in the 3rd period only to lose 6-4. It's like deja-vu all over again.

The Lightning almost rallied back to win as well... At least the Sens lost a game.

Reffing was atrocious against the Canadiens.

Anyone catch the SJ/Bruins game? SJ ties it up with 38 seconds left. With 15 seconds left in the game, SJ clears the puck around the boards but it bounces off the ref and onto the stick of a Bruin which would set up for the game winning goal.

I've noticed a lot of ref mistakes not only in hockey lately. EPL, NFL, College football... etc. We can only hope it will get better.

Gotta love McCabe. Not only is he one of the worst defensemen out there, but he goes out of his way to score on his own goalie with 3 seconds left in overtime!

I. hate. McCabe. That's all I have to say about last night's game. On a good note, Gamache and Kilger got their 2nd goal of the season and Antropov go a goal and a assist. Damn You McCabe. You're off my Fantasy Pool just for last night.

Geez, Montreal was robbed by a lucky goal. **** they completely outplayed Florida for 60 minutes and were beat. What terrible luck. Oh well, if they continue playing like they did last night, it should be ok.

I can't believe Flames surrendered a 4-0 lead! We need to tighten up our D. Also, amazingly enough, all 4 Avs goals went off of the skates or sticks of Flames' defensemen. :blink:
