The Last Day of August

<3 Kabby - Bruce Bennett

We've done it, everyone. August, the slowest of hockey months, has passed us by. Some important numbers for surviving the last September Stretch:

5 days until Leafs rookie camp.

14 days until the first pre-season game.

14 days until the first regular season game.

15 days until the first Leafs' preseason game.

31 days until the Leafs' home opener against the Alfredsson-free Senators.

Who knows? Maybe sometime next week, there'll be something to talk about. A little light reading for you:
