Hey did anyone hear if there’s been any hockey news while I’ve been out of town?

As we all know, hockey is virtually void of an offseason. The Stanley Cup Final goes into late June, followed quickly by awards, the Draft, and the carnival that is the kickoff to free agency. Sometimes there’s a bit of a lull after a week or two but this time, in Leaf Land anyway, there was a big kaboom. Multiple signings, two executives fired, and a new cunning Assistant GM who probably still gets ID’d at the bar.

If there’s no offseason then that means that the new season is right around the corner. Don’t roll your eyes and say “it’s August.” You’ll blink and it will be training camp. So let’s get ready for the season, shall we? 

Every season brings a new and exciting set of storylines and hot takes. This will be my eighth year "covering" the Leafs and I’m 26 so this will also be my 26th year of fandom. I think I’ve been watching this team long enough that I can predict what some of the headlines might be this upcoming season so I’m going to give it a shot.

A few questions for you...

1) Are you a smart and opinionated hockey fan?

2) Do you want to write about hockey on a major platform?

3) Have you ever read something about the Leafs and thought 'I could write better than this idiot,' maybe even on this very site?

Do we have the thing for you!
