The Toronto Maple Leafs have just found a taker for the albatross of a contract that is Jason Blake’s bloated contract. The Anaheim Ducks have acquired Jason Blake and Vesa Toskala for J.S Giguere. On the surface and in my bias view it would appear that Brian Burke has morphed into “The Situation” from Jersey Shore fame and committed what is known as “The Robbery” but in contract terms, not in typical “Guido” Jersey Shore terms. If you aren’t a familiar with the “The Robery” read this.
Meaning: the act of diverting the interests of a desirable female away from a competing guido. Committing a robbery is considered a skill and may be done even to close friends.
Common usage: “Vinny was making out with this girl, but as soon as he went to the bathroom I moved in and completed the robbery. It was awesome!””
Now all that’s missing for the Leafs G.M (besides a winning hockey team) is a blowout hair cut like Pauly D and some finer practice in the art of GTL (Gym, Tanning, Laundry) and the transition will be complete. Soon after Burkie will be ready to fist pump the beat to the ground just like “The Situation”.
