Maple Leaf Coalition

Toronto Maple Leafs Win Stanley Cup!



Canada was stunned Monday when it was announced that The Stanley Cup will be awarded to the Toronto Maple Leafs, possibly as early as December 6th. The cup will be stripped from 2008 playoff champions (Detroit Red Wings) and be awarded to the Leafs, who didn’t even make the playoffs.
How is this possible, Canadians ask?
Well, the Leafs have formed a coalition with the eastern conference semifinalists (Montreal Canadians), and conference quarter finalists (Ottawa Senators), now outnumbering the Red Wings. According to current Leaf coach Ron Wilson, “the Red Wings have lost the confidence of the league and should hand the cup over immediately to our coalition.”

NHL commissioner Gary Bettman is cutting short a European trip to try to resolve the unprecedented hockey crisis that could force a second playoff series, or see an opposing team coalition take the cup.
Prorogue, you say?


This guy pretends to lead Coalition “A” (as in “eh”, eh!)


Ah, but this Maple Leaf coalition is not led by pro rogues at all - Coalition “B” is led by Big “B” - the only guy who’s a winner in the east & west!
