I don't need to remind you where the Leafs sit in the standings, but I do need to remind you that the post-season starts in a couple of days. Some people have other teams that they like to follow, and others wait until they have to pick somebody new. Theoretically, I land in the former, but my other teams?

But what you want and what you get are two entirely different things, and the Leafs, well.. it wasn't very pretty.

With the Leafs out of the playoffs, it's time to find some silver linings in the last couple of games. For me, I always liked it when the team would give opportunities to their up-and-comers, giving the fans a taste of what is to come, and the staff an opportunity to see if they're ready to make the leap.

Tonight, the Leafs will be doing just that, giving Drew MacIntyre his first ever start and Petter Granberg his first taste of the NHL.
