Don't have any Leafs related links for you this morning. Did find one small tidbit regarding the CBA negotiations from Larry Brooks of the New York Post:

So the CBA negotiations basically can be summarized thusly: The big-market teams don’t want to pay the small-market teams, the small-market teams don’t want to pay the players, and so, of course, the NHL is stuck in its flawed approach that satisfies both of these constituencies while reaching deep into the athletes’ pockets but doing nothing to generate revenue for cash-poor franchises.

Depending on the extent to which the owners are unwilling to compromise, we may be in for an extra long offseason.
