The Maple Leafs begin the season on October 2, a Wednesday, against the Ottawa Senators in what should be an exciting match. Will the Sens have the contract of David Clarkson or the contract of Ryan Callahan on the roster? How will they get to the salary cap floor? Will they make Bobby Ryan captain since his salary is now crucial to the team?
Meanwhile, will the Leafs have any players at all or will they all have been offer-sheeted away?
Two days later, the Leafs get another opening night in Columbus. That’s all we know of the schedule so far, but we expect the rest of it to be announced tomorrow, June 25, so stay tuned, and crack open the piggy bank and see if you can afford a seat at Scotiabank this year.
