There's no greater feeling for a prospect than finally stepping foot on the home ice of your NHL team's arena. It usually signifies that your hard work has paid off, as you've made it to the biggest stage there is. This long weekend, however, brings a bunch of Leafs and Senators hopefuls to those rinks for a different reason - to represent their AHL clubs.

Ah, Family Day. It's the holiday that we made up because we needed time off in the middle of a month famous for being cold and making couples remember to go on a date. The latter has passed, and the former is at its peak; I don't understand why anybody would want to go outside today. I don't know how many of you are spending today with your families, but I do know that a few of you spent a minute or two asking me questions, which I'm here to answer.

LEAFS POSTGAME: Worst Case Scenario

So, here's my position on tanking; no matter how bad you're going to do, you're going to win a game or two. We've seen teams tank so hard that the league has considered stepping in and still win a handful of games. It happens; teams don't try as hard, bounces go your way, you know the deal. So naturally, I'm in favour of the Leafs losing a bunch but especially in favour of their rare wins coming against the Montreal Canadians. Because, you know, beating the Habs is better than being successful. If you lose, whatever, it's a big zero points and you move on to the next loss.

Of course, the Leafs found a way to screw that up tonight.
