Tim Connolly was put on waivers and we will see whether he makes it through. Darren Dreger noted that he'll probably go down to the Marlies. Hopefully, he will be as acclaimed as Keith Aucoin, who was picked up by the New York Islanders, by Dallas Eakins for his hard work and dedication. While we wait for the 3pm 5pm deadline for final 23 man rosters to be submitted let's take a second to get to know the Leafs' newest pest, Leo Komarov who was profiled by Friend of the Blog Jonas Siegel:

The Germans and Finns were squaring off that day, a pair of Maple Leaf draft picks on opposite sides.

"I remember all the other teammates on the national team were coming into the room after the first period and going 'Who the [expletive] is that guy?' and I just sat there and laughed," remembered Korbinian Holzer, then a member of the German national squad.

Meet Leo Komarov. Among the newest Leafs to join the roster this winter, the 25-year-old is certain to be a nuisance for opposing East foes and likely to emerge as a fan favourite in Toronto.

Boy, I can guarantee that if the opposition hates Leo Komarov that much that we will love him. Although, judging by some of the stuff those guys were complaining about, we may be in for some controversy once he hits the ice. But Chemmy had a thought: what if Komarov is always like that?
