Twenty-five games. That’s all that the Maple Leafs have played so far this season. That’s tied with the Columbus Blue Jackets for the least amount of games played so far this season.

Things blew up (as much as they can in Toronto these days) yesterday afternoon when the Leafs traded Peter Holland to the Arizona Coyotes. After a strong start to the season, Holland found himself in and out of Mike Babcock’s proverbial dog house — mostly in, really.
