A little too quiet

Unfortunately, there isn't much Leafs news to report on this morning.  The Buds do expect Fredrik Sjostrom and Mike Brown back in the line-up tonight against Washington on HNIC.  While Sjostrom hasn't been very noticeable this season, Brown has won over many with his tenacious forechecking and willingness to sacrifice his body.  Colton Orr is also a possible scratch after banging his head on the ice on Thursday (you'd think a guy who takes punches for a living couldn't possibly have a brain to concuss, but go figure)  The most compelling storylines of the day, however, are going on elsewhere in the NHL.  Will someone claim Nabokov?  Will Cory Clouston get fired?  Have the Thrashers really lost 130 million in five seasons?
