It's officially the off-season, and while there's plenty of fun to be had coming up; the draft, free agency the World Cup; what we want is training camp and the pre-season.

The Toronto Maple Leafs will be heading back to Halifax for camp this year, and after such an enormous turn out last year (recapped here), they've added a pre-season game vs the Ottawa Senators for the wonderful Leafs fans in the Maritimes.
