If you think the Leafs aren't trying "you're lost." That's according to Phil Kessel in a scrum yesterday. As you can imagine, this blew up into a whole big thing.

Kessel: 'We're giving a full effort'
Crank-of-the-season, Jonas Siegel, highlights how Horachek and Kessel have competing messages.

Toronto Maple Leafs’ dressing room ‘pretty screwed up'
An anonymous Leaf said "You’d think things would change. No one notices what’s going on here." Who was it? Apparently someone from the bottom 6 who thinks the top 6 stopped caring, and so he should get more ice time.

The Leafs have 10 games left. For some reason the NHL's schedulers decided three of these games will be against the Senators, the first of which is tonight. The Hamburglar now has a win record of 12-0-1. Sounds like a night for the Leafs to tank, and tank hard!

A new Leaf: Nikita Soshnikov

The Leafs acquired a player you've never heard of.
