Breaking News!!!

In what can only be described as a stunning turn of events, Detroit may have to relinquish the Stanley Cup and hand it off to the Toronto Maple Leafs. A coalition consisting of teams from Ottawa, Montreal and Toronto have petitioned NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman to remove the 2007-2008 cup from Detroit. Last year the three tams combined to score 759 goals while racking up 126 wins. Detroit had a mere 54 wins and scored only 257 goals. The coalition states that due to the fact the Red Wings are currently 3rd overall in the league, hockey fans have lost faith in the current champions. This change is needed to restore confidence in the game of hockey. Mr. Bettman has returned early from a spending spree in Europe to deal with the crisis. While he is no longer captain of the Maple Leafs, Mats Sundin would be presented with the cup, perhaps as early as Dec. 6th on CBC's Hockey Night in Canada before the Maple Leafs host the Capitals in a rare nationally televised game on the network. Management for the Detroit Red Wings has requested that the league be shut down until Jan. 26th at which time perhaps cooler heads will prevail. Bettman may decide to replay the 2007-2008 Stanley Cup Playoffs at a cost of 300 million dollars during which time all other vital issues will remain unsolved.
