Hello Leafs Nation! It's time for another (barely) Monday Mailbag. Thanks to all those who submitted by either tweeting me (@thejustinfisher) or The Leafs Nation (@TLNdc) or by using the hashtag #TLNMailbag. You're all heroes in my eyes.
Vermette to Toronto?

With the NHL All-Star Fantasy Draft a day away, both myself and Jeff decided to do a fun exercise in which we'd select our own All-Star teams. But then Bobby Cappuccino showed up and decided to crap all over our selections, which is just so typical of him.

The Leafs' latest goal scoring phenom, defenceman Roman Polak, will return to Scottrade Center for the first time since being traded by the St. Louis Blues to Toronto this past offseason.

Peter Horachek probably isn't all that thrilled with the beginning of the Peter Horachek era in Toronto. In two games under the new bench boss, the Leafs have dropped both and gone scoreless. Sure, it's two tough games on the road against two of the best teams in hockey, and sure, the Leafs have suddenly started playing pretty decent defence (relatively speaking), but 0-2-0 just isn't a pretty record.
The piling injuries aren't helping either. Joffrey Lupul, Peter Holland, Leo Komarov, and now David Booth are on the mend and won't be lining up tonight. Matt Frattin, the AHL Marlies' leading scorer, has been recalled.
This patchwork lineup will have to find their scoring touch pretty quickly if they hope to hang with the Sharks tonight in San Jose.

There's been a whole lot of nonsense in my Twitter dot com feed lately, and I'm not talking about Bobby Cappuccino.

What is this? Seriously? Jeffler wrote a good piece this morning on why trading Phil Kessel would be a dumb idea, but I guess nobody smartened up and we are apparently still talking about it.
