Good Morning Toronto Maple Leafs fans!
Tonight is game five of the 2019-20 season, and its great that we’ve all agreed on one thing: Everything is Kasperi Kapanens fault. Yes, even before he decided to defend by going spear fishing with the puck on Saturday night. Kapanen was the one in the wrong.
Max Domi is on it:
Mike Babcock knows who’s to blame:
Mike Babcock on Kasperi Kapanen: "I'll talk to him, but I'm not talking to him now. He's going to have enough people talking to him. He'll probably get the message pretty good, I'd imagine"— Mark Masters (@markhmasters) October 6, 2019
The media are writing their hit pieces...
Story: Is it too soon for the Leafs to bump Kasperi Kapanen off the John Tavares line? https://t.co/0XaKKGbyyc— Jonas Siegel (@jonassiegel) October 8, 2019
"The fact we're not even a full week into the season and it's just four games, I think it's gonna buy at least a little more patience."@reporterchris spoke about how long of a leash @mapleleafs head coach Mike Babcock will have with Kasperi Kapanen. pic.twitter.com/r1dtkJsxMk— Sportsnet (@Sportsnet) October 8, 2019
And, you aren’t officially a scapegoat unless the fans are on board:
Ok. Since everyone’s going to nitpick my choice of words, why is Kasperi Kapanen still playing on a line with John Tavares and Mitchell Marner?— CorsiHL (@CorsiHL) October 9, 2019
I just dropped Kasperi Kapanen for Roope Hintz in my fantasy league. Hope I won’t regret it— Erin Walsh (@ewalsh90) October 9, 2019
But, despite all of this, at least he’s keeping his sense of humour.
Here’s what you missed at the ol’ PPP yesterday:
And elsewhere in Leafs Land...
I only read the headline, but...it wasn’t a trade?
It’s mean, but...it’s kinda funny.
Of course, we all knew this.
The Leafs keep using this logo on things, and I worry it’s going to be on a jersey at some point.
Now here’s some news about other, lesser, teams.
Aw, poor babies.
Any future Leafs in here?
Then don’t expect Alex Pietrangelo to stick around.
Gritty gets personal...
Enjoy your day folks! Don’t forget, the game is at 7 tonight!
