The Leafs have a lot of the roster pieces in place to be a high flying, strong skating transition team full of fearless individuals, many of whom have big bodies. The San Jose Sharks are actually that team, with even more depth and a coaching staff that takes advantage of the abilities of their skaters. Tonight was a game destined for heartbreak, but if the Leafs could beat the Ducks, maybe they could pull it off agai... make it stop

I'm seeing a lot of 82 game pace numbers being spread around the Internet right now for forwards on the Toronto Maple Leafs, mostly for the sake of arguing about people.

"Shouldn't the Leafs game be on right now?" Not exactly. The west coast is lame, and time zones are lamer, so the Leafs still have a couple of hours before they drop the puck. We'll talk about that game soon, but for now, how about answering a couple of questions? Without further ado..
