.....being just outside of the GTA, there's been very little mention of this incident. Oh sure, the Leafs are up in arms because Hill played a integral part in the Islanders making the playoffs, at the Leafs expense. In other words, the Leafs were affected most by this, of course they are going to squeak a bit.
.....And, the Toronto talk radio station (Fan 590) ran with it for about a day, if that...cause it was a Leafs story, it was the expected reaction.
.....However, outside of the GTA, one radio station and the odd newspaper article from a Toronto newspaper, this story is getting very little attention, even by diehard Leafs fans. Truth of the matter is, the diehard Leafs fans forgot about Hockey in mid-April, and the few who have chosen to follow the playoffs, when this story broke, they were talking about the Sens.
.....Now, outside of Leafs-Nation, let's be honest, very few people give a crap about Sean Hill, and the fact he used a banned suspense. Sure it was wrong, but there's no one in the forest to hear this tree make a noise...D'
