Hockey-starved fans in Toronto, rejoice – there’s going to be a charity hockey game played between a good number of NHL studs at Ye Olde Maple Leaf Gardens, and you can go watch!

Cynical Bourne wants to write dickish things about the presumed effort level of the game, but Optimist Bourne feels the need to note that it’s still impressive to watch the best in the world at what they do when they aren’t going balls-to-the-wall. The best part about charity games – aside from the money going to charities, obviously – is that the defense is usually pretty lax (not existant), so you get to see plenty of fancy, skilled plays. It’s a goalie’s worst nightmare – poor D and talented forwards who want to try ridiculous things that have the potential to embarrass them. Fun!

The money raised will go towards the NHLPA’s Goals and Dreams Fund, which you can learn more about here.

Your teams (images courtesy Pro Hockey Talk, cause what, I’m going to create my own graphs?):

Damn. Team Subban looks nasty. What a treat for Leafs fans to get to see the great Tomas Kaberle in person!

And now, Team Stamkos:

In all seriousness, there will be tons of talent there, and it’s for a good cause. If you miss hockey and like helping people, Wednesday’s your day to take care of both.

  1. I imagine Tim Connolly is pretty nifty in a no-check game.

  2. thats a pretty impressive line up but I was at the charity game that Hartnell and Richards put on a few weeks ago and those rosters were a lot better. all that being said still sucks that we have to argue about which charity game had better rosters

  3. Good day! This is kind of off topic but I need some help from an established blog.
    Is it very hard to set up your own blog? I’m not very techincal but I can figure things out pretty fast. I’m
    thinking about setting up my own but I’m not sure where to begin. Do you have any ideas or suggestions? Thanks
