As you may have heard by now, the Toronto Maple Leafs have signed free agent Russian winger Nikita Soshnikov to a three-year entry level contract. Most recently, the 21-year old Soshnikov played for Atlant Mytishchi in the KHL, scoring 14 goals and 32 points in 57 games played. That points total was fourth best among U24 players in the league.
Now that the news has broke, we're seeing more and more quotes coming out of Soshnikov and the Russian media. Not that I know anything about him personally, but he's certainly saying all of the right things.
More past the jump...

Now that the Leafs have nothing left to play for, is it time to use some of those post-trade deadline call ups?
There's 11 games left in the season, and since the Leafs have officially been eliminated from playoff contention, the organization might as well start taking a look at some of the minor league players in the system who could potentially be with the big club in 2015-16.

ICYMI, the Toronto Maple Leafs are a horrible hockey team.
And with nearly a month remaining in the 2014-15 NHL regular season, the Leafs will miss the playoffs for the ninth time in 10 seasons.

Craig MacTavish watching the Leafs, probably.
Ughhhhhhhh, let's get this over with. The Edmonton Oilers beat the Toronto Maple Leafs by a score of 4-1 tonight, while Toronto handily won the Greatest Tank Battles game-within-the-game. The Leafs, much to the delight of Tank Nation, now sit 27th in the league. So, that's something, I guess?

Ok, so here's the plan. We get this hockey game over with and then we all head to The Roxy. That's the place to be, man. It's where every visiting hockey team (and members of the home team, I'm sure) go after the game to unwind and drink and meet pretty ladies. It's like hockey player heaven, and they even hold parties and bring in the Stanley Cup! No, I mean, not when the Canucks win. They don't win anything. It only happens when a Vancouver-born player wins the Cup elsewhere and brings it home.
