Good morning Toronto Maple Leafs fans!
It’s Saturday, and we are 11 days away from the start of the Maple Leafs newest season, filling us with hope and dreams and dread and stress. What a fandom we’ve chosen.
Last night the Maple Leafs were Schrodinger's hockey team, both losing and winning the same game. Hardev has your recap of the Blue & White game:
Maple Leafs beat Maple Leafs on national TV
How great is it that the Maple Leafs intra-squad scrimmage is national TV on BOTH sports networks, while the other Canadian teams get no airtime?
It’s pretty great.
The Leafs also signed Brarden Kressler and yes, I am also asking “Who the hell is Braeden Kressler?”
Maple Leafs sign Braeden Kressler to an ELC
