Hello Toronto Maple Leafs fans! Are we ready for another week of game-free nights that ends with everyone finding the tiniest of minutia to argue about? Boy am I ever excited to argue a out why borderline NHL player A is a better option for the 13th forward than borderline NHL player B. What a joy!
The next game is Thursday night against the Ottawa Senators, so carry that looming dread with you. Anyway, here’s some stuff I found online while nursing a sore back I got from making my house look presentable enough for some sucker nice person to buy. Yeah, I have a house, I’m one of the good early millennials who still got to do stuff like that.
Did you know that Travis Boyd is on waivers? I barely knew he was on the roster.
Some ding-dong wants the Leafs to get Jonathan Quick? Like the one on the LA Kings? Who hasn’t had a save percentage over .910 in three seasons? Who’s still has a $5.8 million cap hit for this seasons and two more? To the Leafs who are cap strapped?
Do the Leafs make trades? For these players?
Speaking of Mikeal Granlund, he’s been moved to the scratch and dent section of the trade store.
#Preds starters: Ryan Johansen, Filip Forsberg, Eeli Tolvanen, Mattias Ekholm & Alexandre Carrier. Pekka Rinne stops the pucks.— Brooks Bratten (@brooksbratten) March 22, 2021
Preds scratches: Mikael Granlund (day-to-day, upper-body) & Mark Borowiecki (week-to-week, upper-body). #NSHvsDAL
In news from the department of “Niagara IceDogs the Maple Leafs would have drafted if those jerks the LA Kings didn’t take them in the pick right before the Leafs had”
Akil Thomas just scored his first career professional hat trick in a span of 2 minutes and 43 seconds late in the third period to overturn a 4-1 @ontarioreign deficit and force overtime. Incredible!— Zach Dooley (@DooleyLAK) March 22, 2021
But Sean Durzi got us Jake Muzzin, so okay I guess.
The smart people at Cap Friendly noted some moves:
Are they bad? The other divisions don’t exist for me.
I didn’t read this, but I enjoy the headline.
Okay folks, enjoy your day and remember, don’t argue about anything worthwhile.
