Johnson off to Strong Start in Sweden
Enough can't be said of Andreas Johnson's start to the year. Before his SHL regular season even began, Johnson and his Frolunda Indians dominated the double round-robin portion of the Champions Hockey League. In five CHL games so far, Johnson has amassed eight goals and 17 points, good for second in tournament scoring behind teammate Mathis Olimb. Read that again... 17 points! In five games! #nails

It's so fun when hockey's back. It's not so fun when your team gives up a go-ahead goal with under a minute to play. Alas, here we are, with the Toronto Maple Leafs dropping their home and season opener to the Montreal Canadiens by a score of 4-3.

Now that the 2014-15 NHL season is upon us, there's no better time to make sure you're following all of your favourite TLN writers on Twitter.
Hockey Twitter is the best of times and the blurst of times, but it's also where you can get a ton of cool hockey content straight from the writers. It also gives you another way to contact us directly to our internet faces and tell us how dumb we are and where we should shove our ideas!!!

It's a hell of a day, people. Not only does the regular season kick off tonight, but we've also got a new weekly feature to roll out. Every Wednesday is now What Would You Do Wednesdays, where TLN will describe a fantastical scenario and you, the reader, will let us know how you would handle it in the comments below.
Here's where it gets fun. Once you provide us with your answer, everybody on the entire internet will read it. Then they will give it a thumbs up or a thumbs down. Then you will become very famous and popular and all the boys and/or girls at school and/or work will be very attracted to you. It's that easy.
Ready? Let's do it.

Truthfully, the title could have just as easily read "Marlies trade William Nylander to MODO for Viktor Loov."
From the always cool and informative Chris Johnston of Sportsnet...
After much discussion, MODO allowed prospect Viktor Loov to join #leafs AHL team rather than forcing him back to Sweden. Classy move.— Chris Johnston (@reporterchris) October 8, 2014
