[Tuesday's FTB] On The Bright Side

Scott Barbour

OK, so the league and the players met last night for a couple hours to start talking again, but there doesn't seem to have been any real movement, and any article written on the subject is basically another non-news item, but at least we know they're back to chatting, and not taking two weeks off.

More interestingly, a number of Leafs prospects have been doing well, the the Marlies having won 6 of their last 7 games. Nazem Kadri, for one, has reassured many a fan by buoying his point totals as of late.

At least there's some good news out there for us.
