A relatively slow day for Leafs links, but also for NHL links in general. The CHL is a different story, however, with the St. John Sea Dogs winning the Memorial Cup. The win marks the first time a Maritime team has ever won the tournament, and James Mirtle, who has been following the story from the beginning, has the recap:
