And the winner is...


The one and only, Tomas Kaberle, defenceman for the Maple Leafs.

You - the people - have spoken, and it's change you have voted for. Kaberle will replace Mats Sundin in the Sports And The City banner, and I can't say I'm surprised. Kabby does, after all, "make cross-ice pass like you won't believe."

For those that voted for Mats, thank you, and fret not. Sundin will live on forever in our hearts. 

The results of the poll were actually rather close. Kaberle won it with 44 votes, while Mats came in at 40. Vesa Toskala finished third with 19 votes. Like my man Barack Obama says, every vote counts.

Thanks to everyone that participated. Appreciation is there. I'll get the Sports And The City one-man marketing department on it.

@ Schultzy: I know you voted Kabby. He is the apple of both our eyes.

@ General: Cheers, brother. I know you're a big Tomas fan as well.

@ Wrap: Don't worry honey, there's a possibility that Kabby gets traded at this year's deadline, or in the off-season. So, we might have to do this all over again. And Schenn will most definitely be involved. And he'll likely win.

now that Tomas is part of this blog, will he share shaving tips or advice on making cross ice passes like you won't believe?
