The pumps have been turned off. The glass has been taken down and packed away. The only professional hockey left to be played in Toronto will take place 3.2 km down Lakeshore Blvd at Ricoh Coliseum. For the 7th straight year, the Toronto Maple Leafs' season will end on the final day of the regular season. For a season that held such promise, even as recently as January, this weekend will be fairly depressing. The Leafs are out of the dance once again and it looks like yet another summer of significant change is looming. At least the draft should ensure the Leafs pick up a good young talent.
