Mondays, am I right?
A little after 8:30 on Monday morning, the Leafs announced they'd traded two of their upcoming UFA assets to San Jose- Roman Polak and Nick Spaling- in exchange for a second-round pick in each of 2017 and 2018, as well as Raffi Torres.

Tonight, the Leafs hosted the Philadelphia Flyers in a nine-goal, torrid affair.
Picking up one more point than management probably would've appreciated as they fell in 5-4 overtime, the Leafs continued the trend of a decent possession game met with an L on the scoresheet.

Failure will never overtake me if my determination to succeed is strong enough.— Frank Corrado (@frankcorrado22) October 5, 2015
The above tweet currently sits pinned at the top of Frank Corrado's twitter profile. It was posted the same day the Vancouver Canucks placed the defenceman on waivers.
Corrado’s move to the Leafs over the next 24 hours wasn't really an overly notable one in the grand scheme of things in the NHL. A 2011 5th round pick claimed off waivers from Vancouver, it was perhaps surprising why Vancouver waived him in the first place, but still far from a blockbuster move. Floating between the Marlies and Leafs lineups as well as frequent nights in the Air Canada Centre press box as a healthy scratch, Corrado sat in limbo for the early part of his Leafs' career.

Chicago scored 7 and the Leafs scored 2. In a stinky season, you're going to have a few stinkers. And this one smelled baaaaaaaad. The result or even the scoreline wasn't surprising per se, but the path was a little wonky.

It sounds like Toronto's going to be a busy place in the holiday season of 2016-17. While hosting the Canadian group of the 2017 World Juniors in the round robin, another piece of news dropped today about the Leafs organization's second-ever outdoor game, and first at home.
