The Los Angeles Kings have a very real chance of winning their second Stanley Cup in three years tonight. It's an amazing feat for a team that was built with purpose and with patience, and they deserve all the credit in the world for it. Most people are giving it to them.

There are some Leafs fans who hold a grudge though, based solely on an incident from 21 years ago, that happens to be my most frequent "Wayback Wednesday" request and one of the most popular mailbag questions since it started (just behind "who will replace Carlyle????"). I'm referring to...

"Do the Leafs win the Stanley Cup if Wayne Gretzky is called for a high stick in Game 6?"

First and foremost, you should have let this go 21 years ago. Secondly, probably not.

The good thing about today? I managed to take care of so many day-to-day errands that I can't actually remember most of the day's events. The not so good thing? It's 10:44 AM and I'm about to do my second mailbag in three days. It sucks, I know, but at least we're getting to the bottom of the inbox. Besides, I'm hoping to get our first Wayback Wednesday post in a while up tomorrow, so that will be something, right?

It is the worst day of all days. It's what you come to dread after the final buzzer of the final game. It's the opposite of what any fan of the sport could possibly want. It's that imperfect spot in the sea of news.

Today, it is 4PM and nothing is going on with the Toronto Maple Leafs.

I've probably used this title before, but I don't know that it really matters. Today, I'm focusing my day on cleaning my room, doing laundry, responding to messages, and laying the foundation several weeks worth of content for this site. In the process, I noticed that I had a mailbag email (!!), a mailbag tweet (!!!) and 23 AskFM questions. I really need to chip away at these, so we may have more mailbags over the next week or two. The bottom three questions are three months old, for reference.
