The best line I’ve heard so far about trade deadline day

In 1967-68, the Leafs were sailing along in top spot until the wheels fell off in January. At the deadline, they made a huge deal for the big centre they wanted, but it was too late.

Last night, after we got back from the grandparents’ house, my seven-year-old was telling me about playing NHL2K11 with his uncle.

“I didn’t pick Toronto,” he said, “because I didn’t think I could win with them.”

My daughter walks into the room.

“Who said that,” she asks, “Nash?”

(For non-hockey followers – Rick Nash is considered the top prize to be had at today’s deadline day.  Toronto has fallen into the sewer since slightly before speculation began.)
