Thankfully, things are looking slightly better in Leafs Nation today, after last night’s thoroughly deserved 2-1 victory in Boston. James Reimer may have finally proved he’s the goalie of the future for this team and I couldn’t be happier for him.
One person who wasn’t available for game 5 was the Leafs Mark Fraser, after the following incident during Wednesday’s 5-2 loss at the ACC:
As a result, Fraser was taken to the hospital for a CT scan and this is what they found:
Talk about literally adding injury to insult.
You’d figure Fraser might want to consider his legal options, especially with being the son of Ontario Court of Justice Judge, The Honourable Mr. Justice Hugh Fraser. Surely dad could pull a few strings to make sure that ‘justice’ is served, until you realise the former New Jersey Devils draft pick wasn’t wearing a visor.
While the defenceman is undoubtedly one tough son of a gun, especially after leaving the ice under his own steam, not wearing the appropriate protection makes you question his intelligence. And there’s no defence for stupidity, no matter how powerful your dad is.
