“Release the Kraken!”

Like Zeus in "Clash of the Titans" I now call upon Brian Burke to "Release the Kraken!"

The Toronto Maple Leafs were mathematically eliminated from the NHL playoffs for the fifth straight season this week. Five seasons that the Buds' longest-serving member, Tomas Kaberle, has been a part of.

Now, reports out of Toronto have Kaberle complaining about his coach and saying that he is finally ready to move on.

“Release the Kraken!”

I've always been a fan of Kaberle's vision and puck-moving ability. What I don't admire is his reluctance to shoot or play a physical game. And now this.

Has anyone else noticed that when the Leafs totally sucked at the beginning of the year, Kaberle was leading the scoring and was second in the league in scoring amongst defencemen, and now that the Leafs are playing relatively competent hockey, Kaberle has vanished?

Time to move on. The end of an era. The last of the Muskoka Five.

“Release the Kraken!”
