Not much in the way of Leaf news today, aside from a couple articles by James Mirtle at the Globe and Mail that I got a kick out of. It seems that Brett Lebda is feeling just a tad left out.
"I thought I was playing pretty well, but I’ve just been on the ice for too many goals against," he said. "Whether they’re my fault or not, it’s still something that needs to be cut down."
He's been playing well, you see. It's just that everyone scores when he's on the ice. Go figure.
Also, it seems that Carl Gunnarsson, Fredrik Sjostrom, and Jonas Gustavsson are getting into organized crime.
"We spend a lot of time together," Gustavsson said. "Our girlfriends, too. We've got a Swedish mafia going on here."
There are a couple other Leaf-related links to check out, but this long gap between games is also as good time a time as any to catch up on what's been going on with other teams around the league. More after the jump.
