New, comments

So I figured that I would follow in the great Deadspin's footsteps and provide a round-up of interesting articles in the morning with a little commentary.

I'll leave the comments open for name suggestions in the hopes of actually getting some good ones. Also, if you come across any interesting articles or blog posts or write your own e-mail them to me and I'll try to include them. Anyway, here is today's installment:

  • Alec Brownscombe takes a look at the stable of prospects that JFJ left behind. In five years we'll know if there's a silver lining to his tenure with the team.

  • Speaking of Alec, there was a bit of an incident with Greener but things have been sorted out. Good to see that the issue was cleared up and that the circumstances that allowed it have been addressed.

  • Ryan thinks that the Leafs are in the wrong about Thursday night's calling.

  • Back to talking about the future, Tim Wharnsby reveals that JFJ had an opportunity to sign the famed Fabian Brunnstrom but decided to give him another year to see how he adapted to Sweden's top league. Now there are four other teams in the running. What good are unlimited financial resources if they aren't used creatively to secure talent.

  • Howard Berger has not quite learned to read. Leaf fans don't think that Mats owes Toronto or its fans anything. However, people are hoping that his love for the franchise extends to taking a trade in order to return to an improved situation in the summer.

  • Dave Shoalts reports that it will be Robbie Earl who will be the latest player called up in an attempt to re-make the Leafs in the Marlies' image.
