New, comments

It's Leo Komarov's birthday! JvR and I made him some delicious cupcakes! But where did they go?

Are they on top of Faulk's head?

Today is the 28th birthday of our favourite Estonian/Russian/Finnish/Honorary Canadian/Nausicaan, and most interesting player in the NHL, Leo Komarov!

After a pretty stressful few weeks for our Leafs, I thought those of us not caring about the All-Star Game (ie. everyone) could use a fun distraction. Last night I made some delicious cupcakes for Leo to enjoy for his birthday. My real life boyfriend, James van Riemsdyk, has temporarily hidden them inside one of the players stalls in the Leafs dressing room while preparations for Leo's party will be made here by you all posting lots of Leo Komarov GIFS!

So, James, in which player's locker stall did you hide the cupcakes?

You mean you don't remember? Leo isn't going to be happy about that. You're so forgetful!

Dawwwwww. I love you too. How about I loosen your chains for a bit. Didn't you say you made some kind of unnecessarily complicated list containing vague clues describing in which players' stalls you didn't hide the cupcakes so that we can all eventually figure out where they are by a tedious process of elimination?

Help JvR and I find Leo's cupcakes. They are hidden in one of the players stalls. The clues below will help you figure out which players to eliminate. The list of players is whoever was in the game @ the Senators on January 21, plus those on IR and the healthy scratches.

The clues vary in difficulty and area of interest. Keep in mind that some players may be eliminated by more than one clue, and some clues may eliminate more than one player; but there are no trick clues, they all eliminate at least one player; and only one player is not eliminated by any of the clues. When you figure out that player, share it in the comments, but use the spoiler font! The first person who wins will receive a special prize.*

And remember to leave some Komarov GIFS to wish him a happy birthday!

The cupcakes are hidden in the stall of the current Leafs player who:
