You can always count on the Toronto Maple Leafs to be involved in Saturday Headlines in some capacity. Tonight, it had nothing to do with the on-ice product, and everything to do with its parent company MLSE.

According to Elliotte Friedman, Maple Leafs Sports and Entertainment may have found its new boss...

It's only been a week and a half since the NHL season kicked off and the Toronto Maple Leafs have since rung off three straight losses. This wasn't exactly unexpected - most of us had already resigned ourselves to a season of mediocrity and unbalanced win-loss columns - but there have been a few pleasant (and unpleasant) surprises so far this season to make things at least a little interesting.

Which Leafs players have stood out so far this season? Our Roundtable discusses...

Now that the NHL regular season is underway and all of the organization's prospects have returned to their respective junior and club teams, it's about that time we kick off another year of weekly prospects updates.

When I joined TLN, this was my gig - prospect reports. Looking back, I spent my first year fawning over Morgan Rielly of the Moose Jaw Warriors and not a whole lot else. In my first ever TLN article, I wrote about Rielly, Joshua Leivo, Stuart Percy and Garret Sparks - not because they were doing anything remarkable, but because they were the best prospects in the organization. 

Fast track to today, and we can see just how far this group has come. Rielly is on his way to becoming a legitimate top pairing talent, while Leivo, Percy, and Sparks are all pro hockey players with the Toronto Marlies. The good news is that none of the latter three are considered top prospects any longer, having been passed over by a number of extremely talented kids that the Leafs have since drafted or acquired by trade. The organization has as good a prospect pool as it has ever had, and that's why following them closely this year will be such a blast.
