Toronto Maple Leafs-Mike Brown- Who is this guy?

September 2nd, 2010 No Comments

By Louis “KingofRoncesvalles” Pisano A lot of Leafs fans are asking the question “Who is Mike Brown?” Many of us over here in the eastern side of the continent haven’t heard much about this guy but if you ask Vancouver fans about him you’ll probly get a sneer and hear that he wasn’t very well recieved in GM place in fact down right hated. People are describing him as a hard working, speedy right winger, 110% all the time, gritty fouth liner, dime a dozen as well. A few have described/compared him to Ryan Hollweg with better speed and more smarts. He fits nicely into the the middle-weight catagory when it comes to the fist-a-cuffs, and ain’t a-scared of no one, tough as nails and won’t back down are other expressions being linked to Brown.

On the power play, the Maple Leafs were equally inept, scoring 22 times at Home (29th overall) and 22 times on the Road (21st overall).

Dan Rosen of NHL.com is reporting that the Ilya Kovalchuk saga now has a deadline of 5 p.m. ET Friday, at which point the NHL will either accept or reject what is believed to be a 15-year, $100 million contract between Kovalchuk and the New Jersey Devils. The NHL made all kinds of headlines when it challenged the Devils original contract offer to Kovalchuk which would have paid the talented Russian sniper a total of $102 million over 17-years. The NHL made its case on the suspicion that the original contract was guilty of a “circumvention” of the Collective Bargaining Agreement, which an independent arbitrator later agreed with. If the latest contract is rejected, its back to the drawing board for the Devils, who have been working closely with the NHLPA and NHL in order to facilitate a deal that
