In my opinion there's been a problem with the content on The Leafs Nation for a while, people have been putting too much thought into their work. Writers have been doing their best to provide analysis, they've been making charts and graphs, they've been translating Swedish hockey sites so you can know more about Viktor Loov. Today I am taking a stance against effort, and bringing you a clickbait alternative with the start of a bi-weekly feature called BozFeed. 

For people who were tired of having to think too hard when Cam was talking about Relative Corsi for players with 45% or lower Offensive Zone starts you’re in luck, now you’ve got BozFeed!

Was Jeff’s analysis of the shootout pushing your brain to hard? Don’t Worry, BozFeed is here!

Was my analysis in..If HFBoards ran the Leafs   Playoff Bingo  uhh...CRAP! I guess I was already doing this, but now it has a name. BOZFEED!

Now that Gunnarsson is gone it’s time to make way for the next Leafs Swedish defenseman. While that’s more likely to be Granberg in the short term, and Loov could be the better long term option, there’s some really interesting middle ground with Tom Nilsson. Nilsson ranked 16th in our voting last year , and has now skyrocketed up to 13th based largely on one writer's belief that he might be the second best defensive prospect to make a significant impact (Hint: I’m that jackass).

What can be said about Dominic Toninato that explains why we think that he’s the 16th best prospect in the Maple Leafs organization? Last year we had the excitement of him being above a point per game in the USHL which was good enough to put him 15th in our rankings. He looked to be following a path similar to Tony Cameranesi, in fact, his USHL numbers were better than Cameranesi’s, and he’s bigger. Both are fast Minnesotan kids attending University of Minnesota Duluth, their paths are similar so their rankings often are too.

Today the Leafs have released the 2014 Rookie Tournament Roster and Schedule. For the most part this is exciting because the end of this tournament marks the beginning of training camp, but it also gives a few prospects a chance to earn an extended look at training camp, potentially the unsigned/undrafted guys can make a case for AHL deals, or getting selected in the next draft, and the tournament hockey is much better than the pointless scrimmages of development camp.

If the HFBoards Ran the Leafs

Coming off a historic collapse, and missing the playoffs for the 8th time in 9 years it seems reasonable that the Leafs are badly in need of change. The Shanahan hiring is a good start, and we hope Carlyle will soon be shown the door, leaving us with two birds left. The General Manager and Assistant GM team, and the players themselves. I've decided to take the two birds with one stone approach and today we're going to hand the GM duties over to the HFBoards and let them rebuild the roster.
