Last time around, we got some comments on our new wheels. Some liked the old school mail delivery truck feel. Justin felt it looked like an Ice Cream Truck, probably because he forgot why exactly he was loafing around and eating ice cream while looking out the window. Whatever the case, it may have to become an ambulance with all of these injuries hitting the Leafs lineup. Anyway, lets answer some questions.

It's been just about five years since the Toronto Maple Leafs said "Hey, do you know what we need to add? A Kessel", and took the steps to do so, offering a kings ransom to the Boston Bruins for Phil in September 2009 - a move which gave them one of their best wingers of the modern era.

When we heard that the Toronto Maple Leafs were looking for Finnish forwards who spent last season in the Kontinental Hockey League, everyone assumed that Leo Komarov was the target. Technically, they weren't wrong, as he signed a four year deal in July. But as it turns out, he wasn't the only guy that the Leafs had set their sights on, signing Petri Kontiola to a one year, one way, make it or break it deal. But who is this mystery man? What can you expect from him?

When Leo Komarov left the Leafs at the end of the 2012/13 season, I was upset. He was the type of player I loved watching the most, from an entertainment perspective. By that, I mean, he was a jerk and a half. But he was Toronto's jerk and a half. He was Toronto's friendly, weird talking creature from a far away land, who just happened to irritate anything that wasn't in blue and white. Leo Komarov was Toronto's Alf. But he left. But now he's back! Maybe not in pog form, but he's back.
