Bob McKenzie was on TSN's Insider Trading show today talking about Dougie Hamilton trade rumours, and how they've been connected to the Leafs so far. Here's what he had to say:

The Leafs were in tough, playing on a back-to-back game against a rested opponent. Playing their backup goaltender, and facing a pretty solid New Jersey team.

Yesterday morning, Dave Feschuk and Steve Simmons met on the radio to talk hockey, and the subject of William Nylander came up. Their take below thanks to the transcribing of Platinum Seat Ghosts:
Simmons: "on the nights where William Nylander has tried hard, I've been impressed"— Platinum Seat Ghosts (@3rdPeriodSuits) November 22, 2016
Feschuk: "well that's not often"
There are a lot of reasons why this is ridiculous. He's just a rookie, he's been really good already, his usage hasn't been ideal, it's ignorant and toxic. But this is a story that puts a different spin on it all.

The Florida Panthers were in town for the second time this season to play our Toronto Maple Leafs Leafs. Toronto won the first contest 3-2.
Seth Griffith returns to town after his short stint in Toronto. Here's a post I wrote the other day on him. A little bit of self promotion never hurt anyone right?
Here's how the game went:

That's right folks, on November 12th the Seth Griffith ERA was DONE in Toronto (s/o to the SDP). The Leafs chose to waive him due to the return to health of Matt Hunwick and the recall of Nikita Soshnikov. This created an overstocked roster. The Leafs claimed him off of waivers just one month earlier from the Boston Bruins.
As an undersized winger, the Leafs seemed to feel that Seth Griffith was an asset they had no use for, with other undersized forwards present on the roster, and more coming through the pipeline. And there is merit to that when it comes to the future of the organization, no doubt. It would be surprising if Griffith was going to be a Leaf for long, with so many young forwards on his heels.
