[Friday's FTB] Cody Franson Signs! Huzzah!!

Tom Szczerbowski-USA TODAY Sports

Kessel says: "Dion, we're having a FAMILY MEETING!"

I've officially got the bug. I'm excited for this year to start. After agonizing months of replaying "The Game Which Must Not Be Named" (unless you're Stompin' Tom, in which case it's something different), fretting about David Clarkson's crazy contract, Tyler Bozak's re-signing, and the departure of Mikhail Grabovski, Clarke MacArthur, Matt Frattin, and Ben Scrivens, it's actually nearing that time when we all shut up and just get to see how this team does.

I think it's fair to say that most of the contributors to this site (myself very much included) have predicted grim things for this season, but for some inexplicable reason, this fact doesn't take the edge off our enthusiasm. At heart, I guess, we're still just Leafs fans.

Can't wait.

Coyotes to introduce tailgating

The weather is nice there throughout winter, so it sounds like a great idea.

Tim Thomas and Florida make it official

One year deal, $2.5M in salary, $3.75M total with potential bonuses

I can't be the only one who didn't know Cam Neely was "Sea Bass".

For real. Easily the coolest cameo ever.
