The Real Deal

7PM ET: CBC

Tonight there will be festivities at Dundas and a game in Helsinki. Tonight the puck drops on the Toronto Maple Leafs' 93rd season at the Air Canada Centre.

Carey Price will start for our oldest rival but Andrei Markov and Roman Hamrlik remain out of the lineup. Toronto turncoat Michael Cammalleri is suspended tonight Ogie Oglethorpe style. The Leafs will turn to Montreal native J.S. Giguere in net as we sit back and forget the preseason and forget 29th place and look forward to possible salvation.

It was ten years ago tonight that the Leafs defeated Montreal to open a season at home; a feat they haven't repeated since. Their jerseys evoke the 92-93 squad. Can this squad deliver their end of an unfair bargain?
