Good morning Toronto Maple Leafs fans!
If you got caught in that winter storm yesterday I hope you’ve been able to dig yourselves out. If not, take another snow day and relax.
It’s not a game day, so we’ll be taking it easy over here. Let’s see what we can wrangle up for your reading pleasure.

There is some hubub around the PHF who are making a 7AM(?) announcement today. They say this is “major announcement regarding its future in the sport”, but would you really make an announcement like this at 7AM eastern, with the only notice coming less than 12 hours ahead of time?
