It me, Bobby Cappucino taking over the mailbag from Jeffler because TLN overlord Justin Fisher is tired of Jeff's BS (bad stuff). 

As such, I asked for questions on Twitter for the first ever #Mailbobby and here are the questions I got. There are some good ones and some bad ones, but I answer them all with gusto and conviction. And if I know one thing from worshipping the MSM - that's all that really matters.

JVR trade

The first of many Leafs moves before the trade deadline happened today, with the Toronto Maple Leafs dealing winger James Van Riemsdyk to the New York Rangers. I literally cannot believe it.

Most people look back as the Carlylera (that's "Carlyle era" conveniently shortened to make it more efficient) as a negative. "The team played in an unsustainable way", people say. And sure, that's probably true (although we'll never know, as Carlyle's time was unfortunately cut short). But there is something the Carlylera was good for: entertainment. The same can't be said for the Mikera (short for "Mike Babcock era") thus far.

Paul Hendrick aka Henny is known as a nice guy, and is a great source for all things Leafs. Even at the worst of times, you see Henny tweeting about the positives of the team and players. 

That's why we were so surprised to see him roast this fan on line earlier today.
