You mean the season didn’t end at the trade deadline? There are still 19 games to play? There’s one tonight?

You know the drill, it’s a Tuesday night game against Florida so you can rest easy Tank Nation, the loss should be automatic.

Last year as the Leafs entered the off season I made the executive decision on behalf of Brendan Shanahan to let Nonis go, and replace him with the HFBoards, the results led to a roster that even Steve Tambellini would be embarrassed by.

That was the HFBoards first time out, and pencils have erasers for a reason. It’s time to hand the Leafs back over to the HFBoards and see what would happen if the HFBoards rebuilt the Leafs.

Leafs Recall Andrew MacWilliam

As per Leafs twitter, Toronto has recalled Andrew MacWilliam from the Marlies.
