It's a Sunday morning on a holiday weekend so I'm guessing our readership today will be somewhere between slim and none. Here's what people are saying about the Leafs:
Systematically, the forecheck was relentless and the defence looked as organized as it was disorganized this time last year. A full 60 minute effort, when it was tempting to let off in the third. Phil Kessel is looking stronger, better conditioned and even more lethal than where he left off last season. The four forward lines are clicking on all cylinders and serving their functions. The penalty kill is a night and day difference so far.
"Everyone said when I was coming here that I was coming to a 29th place team," said winger Kris Versteeg, late of the reigning Stanley Cup champion Chicago Blackhawks. "But it’s not the 2009-10 season again. It’s a new season."
