It's already the last week of February! And it's a leap year too, extending the month all the way to Friday. It's a busy time in the pension and retirement world with the month-end, tax slips going out, and oh have you made that RRSP contribution yet? Thanks to this being a leap year it means the "first 60 days" deadline is this Friday, February 29.

It's also a busy week for the Maple Leafs too, though starting tomorrow. The Leafs will host two teams they just played out west and then get a visit from a team that is a potential first round playoff match-up. Here is the schedule:

Tuesday vs. Vegas Golden Knights @ 7:00 p.m.
Thursday vs. Arizona Coyotes @ 7:00 p.m.
Saturday vs. New York Rangers @ 7:00 p.m.

And if you are still tired from all the recent late night time games, worry not as through the rest of the season schedule there are now no starts later than 7:30 p.m. ET.


The Back to Excited boys were back yesterday and excited about the Leafs. They also answered all your questions, no matter how unrelated to hockey and so the big takeaway was learning that Arvind has a keen interest in creatures with tentacles (technically they aren't tentacles, but I'm going with it).
