There's something I really like about Drew MacIntyre. Besides the fact he appears to be genuinely nice and friendly to everyone who comes into contact with him, and the whole being really good at stopping pucks thing, he's not afraid to give you an honest answer. It may not be the one that fits the story you're working on, but I'd rather hear somebody's actual thought than a cliche that fits my agenda.

With that said, who else is better to give his feelings on the series so far?

I received a couple of really good questions when doing yesterday's mailbag, that deserved a longer response than a paragraph or two. One of them was as follows:

Let's say the Leafs don't trade Phaneuf after all. Do you think they would be wise to strip him of the C?

There are a couple of things that you have to look at here.

It looks like the Leafs have figured out. After allowing the most shots against by any team ever in an 82 game season, their logical plan to repair things is as follows: keep the "defensive minded" coach who oversaw things for an extra couple of years, and trade your team's most talented defenceman months after giving him a seven year contract. Wait, what?

It's an all-Marlies mailbag today! I guess once you say "I suck at talking about the draft" and we can't talk about coaches anymore, there isn't much else in terms of topics, is there?

It's as if they don't know any better. I still don't know if it's possible to call the perpetual underdogs "for real", but one thing is for sure - the Toronto Marlies are putting up some out of this world results in these playoffs. Tonight, they had a chance to effectively crush the Chicago Wolves' home ice advantage, and did just that, winning by a score of 5-2 and bring home a 2-0 series lead.
