[Thursday's FTB] Ah, Training Camp!

Jonathan Daniel

It's beginning to look a lot like October.

There are plenty of interesting tidbits from around the league to discuss this morning, from Dallas Eakins' comments about hiring son-in-laws, Tim Thomas' pending decision to re-join the NHL, and of course, speculation about who will make the Leafs' team.

The truth is, there are only a few spaces up for grabs. If Cody Franson re-signs (please), there is likely only one spot left at defence, but there are as many as three spots within the forward ranks. Relative to other seasons and other teams, a total of four job openings is actually a lot, not to mention that with so many new personnel, it's tough to gauge exactly how well everyone will work together.

Fun times.

The Quiet Room, Dirtbag Edition: Darcy Tucker

I can concede Tucker was kind of a dirtbag, but he was OUR dirtbag. Also, I'm not sure (just from that video) that the hit on Kapanen was a hit to the head.
