On Friday, the Leafs had (I think) the first official day of training camp in Niagara, and we got some Leafy goodness from it.
There was some more quotes, interviews and transcripts released from people with the Leafs, including Mike Babcock, Tavares, Matthews, Marner and others.
You had a scrimmage game featuring Auston Matthews, John Tavares, Mitch Marner and Patrick Marleau, so of course the goal scorers were Martin Marincin and Pierre Engvall.

The players you expected shone in the scrimmage today.
And this is a better view of Auston Matthews pulling the Kucherov-move... he’s going to ruin worlds this season.

It also featured some grand photos from Niagara Falls, where Marner actually seems... taller? Taller than Carrick and maybe Dermott anyways.
And a preview of the “veterans” we’ll see in the first pre-season game on Tuesday.
