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:
