My suggestion (apparently not posted) was that you suggest the Leafs put this in their Official Program. Worth a try?

Well-crafted tribute to the team and its fans. Nicely done. Perhaps they might put it in their official program?

Great poem Susan. I am not a big hockey fan but my hubby is crazy for the canucks. You sure caught the spirit of hockey fans though, who ever they are rooting for!

Loved it! Usually, I see haikus with only one verse. You did a great job putting many verses in.

Is Hockey still a sport? I thought it was replaced with something more exciting like Speed Knitting. :)

RH, I too hope the Leafs win many games this season. Would be nice for a change :)

Storytellers, Thanks... My husband went to school with Wayne Gretsky...not that that's relevant here but thought I'd throw it out there :)

Marc, My niece lives in Ottawa ... huge Sens fan. We battle it out her and I through the season with jokes back and forth.

Bruce, That would be great if Brian Burke would hire me :)

Ruby, Thanks, I'm having so much fun with Haiku :)

Brian Burke should hire you.

Still don't know why they aren't "Leaves" instead of "Leafs."

Go Avalanche, hahaha!

I was raised in Minnesota, where hockey is also king of the sports world. I was shocked when the North Stars left the state, but figured it was because everyone was too busy attending their kid's and grandkid's hockey games to have time for a professional team!

Good luck- so many of our players come from Canada...

I am a hockey fan! I used to love going to all the games here - Blues vs. Chicago Blackhawks were my favorite games:). I haven't followed it as much lately bc I'm a bigger FB fan now. (Football not Face Book:). I hope the Leafs win lotsa games! Great Haiku!

I'm not a fan of cold weather. So sports played in the cold, uh, hmm, no. Still, enjoyed your haiku.

It would have to be the Black Sticks for me, but I don't really follow them so I'll give a 'Go Leafs Go'

I support the Silver Ferns netball team

I am a football fan rather than hocky even though my team has been pitiful for some time now. But I respect your right to love hockey. Sisam. so Go, Leafs, Go!

Ah yes and lost in the finals at least 2 times in the past 10 - 15 years right? :-) Oh wait one of the times I'm remembering was the Hurricanes knocking you out of the semis, not the finals. :-) Just trying to remind you of the losses! Ha ha ha...

I'm more of a Capitals fan. We're chronic under achievers! Ovechkin needs to do better!!!

Lapse, I can only hope and dream. We haven't won the cup since what 1967? :)

Cardisa, You can do it...Yes you can :)

You are so good at this Susan, I am so nervous to even try!

You won't get far losing to Boston like you just did. Better beat them Saturday night.

Who is your star player? Lookin like Phil Kessel? Was going to crack on him since I've never heard of the dude, but he leads the league in goals and points. Not bad.

Linda and Ruchira, I am really hoping that there are a few Leafs fans in HubVille. Maybe Greek One or Duchess OBlunt will stop by and cheer them on. :) Thanks to both of you.
