Overseas Trip For Leafs?

from the Toronto Sun,

The Maple Leafs are rumoured to be on the short list should the NHL again choose to open the 2008-09 season in Europe.

“I have heard about it,” general manager John Ferguson said yesterday. “No question, the Leafs are a team with global appeal.”

Stockholm would be a strong possibility for the Leafs, who have Swedes Mats Sundin—for this year anyway—as well as Alex Steen. A perfect match would be the Vancouver Canucks with the Sedin twins and Markus Naslund.

more... hmmm, I know another NHL team that would be even a better fit to play in Stockholm than either the Leafs or Canucks…
