The Leafs apparently got hit by a bug, I suspect transmitted through JVR via Species. Way to go, Species.
#Leafs recall Justin Holl on emergency basis for tonight. Roman Polak to IR with a viral infection, Ron Hainsey a game-time decision tonight vs. Isles with illness.— Kristen Shilton (@kristen_shilton) January 31, 2018
So on the one hand, Polak to the IR seems like a good time for Babcock to really give guys like Carrick, Dermott, and/or Borgman some time even when Zaitsev and Rielly are back. On the other hand, Hainsey's been such a rock in stabilizing the game of Rielly and Gardiner, so that's less good.
Nikita Zaitsev has the worst stats of the Leafs top four | by Katya, looking at Zaitsev using incredibly hilarious metaphors.
GO LEAFS GO!
Who are you most happy to see getting into the lineup now?
This poll is closed
Zaitsev - better depth on D
Dermott - kid's solidified the bottom pair
Kapanen - frigging finally!
No I'm not giving you Rielly as an option that's just not fair
