A couple months back, when the shots against situation looked dire for the Toronto Maple Leafs, I wrote an article on here titled "How Bad Is The Bleeding?". Well, the season is over, and we don't have to pace the Leafs out anymore. They've given up 2945 shots this season. Here's how that stacks up compared to the last 26 years (earliest full season data available) of the National Hockey League.

With the Leafs' season done, I imagine that mailbag questions are going to be a bit weirder. Mostly, "what do you think about this draft prospect", "who should the Leafs sign", and "why does Tim Leiweke appear to be flying a giant blimp over South East Etobicoke". I'm not good at following amateur prospects, I don't like playing crystal ball, and I'm voting for whichever mayoral candidate declares war on Mimico.

So during the offseason, instead of doing a mailbag every Monday, I'll do one every time I get five questions that I want to answer. So really, it's in your hands.

To submit a question, send me a tweetemail meask me, or leave a comment.

A strong finish can make up for a weak start. I'm not sure if that metaphor better suits the third period of this game, or the weekend as a whole, but the Toronto Marlies pulled off a three goal rally over the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins to avoid being swept on this weekend roadtrip.
