The story of Herb Carnegie

Herb Carnegie was denied a shot to play in the NHL, to the point his passing has been practically ignored by the league.

A Toronto-based group with a proposal to bring a second NHL team to the Greater Toronto Area says...

A Toronto-based group with a proposal to bring a second NHL team to the Greater Toronto Area says the team would be named the Toronto Legacy and would play out of a 30,000-seat facility built at Downsview Park. The new facility would have multiple ice pads for public skating, with more seating than the Air Canada Centre. And the team would offer 25 per cent of its proceeds to seven national charities, including Carnegie's Future Aces Scholarship Foundation.

Talk about pie in the sky. Simmons was, bear with me, right. These guys have not even talked to the NHL about an expansion team, they announce it during the Stanley Cup Final, and they didn't talk to the NHL about it. I bet Herb Carnegie just went up on a death list alongside Jim Balsillie.

A Third Group Wants GTA NHL Franchise

Wow. Yet another group wants into the GTA. This one is different. Instead of working to destabilise the NHL, ripping a team from a city, and basically being a bunch of jerks or being headed by the only person dumb enough to fight Wendel Clark when he didn't have to this proposal is basically run by Mother Teresa's Jamaican-born cousin. Interesting Notes: "The three will unveil how the team will honour "Canadian heroes while supporting cancer research, national scholarships and children's charities." "Tomorrow, the group will talk about its financing, donations, an economic impact review and also unveil the name of a team, arena, jersey, site plan and architect renderings." Balsillie can't even come up with a team name!
