Enjoy the Leafs' Wednesday Night "Rivalry Game" against the Sabres. I think I'm seeing a Connor McDavid mirage...
Leafs vs. Sabres Toronto Star game preview for what is sure to be a real barn burner!
As much as I don't enjoy linking to the Sun (let's just say that I have never exceeded the ten complimentary online articles per month), but apparently the numbers are so low that it led an "industry insider" to exclaim, "I couldn't believe how low it was when I saw it." Perhaps hiring a bunch of annoying hacks to criticize the lack of effort on the ice isn't panning out well for them?
I'm putting this under Leafs Links because discussions of the draft are basically all we have.
Did you miss Scott Wheeler's piece on Strome and Marner? Don't fret, it's here!

Ray Ferraro: The odds of going pro are extremely low but the odds of having to find a career and a job to pay bills and be a husband and father are extremely high and it’s not dictated by if you played AAA hockey
Thank you Ray Ferraro.
Also in youth hockey news, addressing misogyny within the culture is long overdue. Consent and sexual violence are not jokes (do not read the link if you are upset by those topics). My heart breaks for those who were victimized (in this case, and everywhere). I'm exhausted from seeing this (and saying this) again and again.
Parents: know what your son's coaches are telling him. Know what your son's friends are telling him. Make sure your voice rings truest.— Eliza Eaton (@Eliza_Eaton) March 11, 2015
Thank you @Eliza_Eaton for writing this.
The classic Ovi gif notwithstanding, it turns out that maybe he isn't terrible defensively after all.
Many more shot attempts, but fewer goals.
