BACK IN ACTION

TORONTO - OCTOBER 7: There's a joke about action to be made here, but it won't be made by me. (Photo by Abelimages/Getty Images)

No, not the NHL, silly. They're a bunch of turds.

School starts up for everyone in Ontario though, and here at Pension Plan Puppets, we have a number of regular contributors and commenters that work in all kinds of educational capacities, be it as students, profs, or teachers. I myself am returning to a rewarding job, teaching only the brightest and the best.

Hope you had a good long weekend everyone, but now it's time for real work chatting about hockey.

Today, we've got Leafs-related linkage from all the usual suspects, including Cam Charron of The Leafs Nation. Before going on to read his article assessing the worst and best Leafs contracts (he's not the only one with a school-themed article today), you should probably know in advance that it ain't pretty.

Michael Langlois is a more generous marker than I am. (And look out, children. It's the first day of school, and I'm BACK.)

Is Toronto Maple Leafs' Matt Frattin Ready for Primetime?
Oh, I don't know, let's just play some hockey and see. From Kevin Pentz at Maple Leafs Central.

Suck it, Phaneuf! I got engaged two days before you! (Really, I did.)
