A strange, new feeling: On the end of a winning season (finally)

The NHL Draft is coming up fast. You can bet on the talk and rumours of Maple Leafs trades starting up quickly after taking a back seat to the Raptors today. The Leafs will still be present Friday night for the first round selections even though they don’t have one of their own. They can still make deals on the floor, and could both trade up in the process. You never know!

Before that, we have the ever exciting NHL Awards on Wednesday! I’m sure all of you will tune in for that. There will in fact be a quiz about the show on Thursday’s FTB. Your PPP membership will be voided if you don’t pass it!

Here’s what we wrote about on the weekend.
