I didn't need to use this picture, but I really, really wanted to.

Unless you missed the 40,000 tweets about it, "The Dream" aka Nazem Kadri has signed a two-year contract with the Toronto Maple Leafs. As fellow awesome TLN writer Cam Charron wrote shortly before this post, Kadri's contract is very good for the Leafs.
