From my inbox, a different take on the politics of coalitions and how it could play out in the world of the NHL…
Considering all this craziness coming out of Ottawa, this scenario makes just as much sense…
Leafs win Stanley Cup!!!

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 from 2008 playoff champions the 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 eastern conference
semifinalists the Montreal Canadians, and conference quarter finalists the 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.
