Is there anything more exciting than a two game win streak? Apparently a three game win streak is a possibility. The last time the Leafs had one of these was on March 10th last season. Following that win the Leafs picked up just six points in the next fifteen games. Memories.
Tonight the Leafs host the Detroit Red Wings to kick off a two night home and home series to determine who is the most middle team in the Hotlantic Division. The two game series is also a great chance to reflect on how awful Jonas Gustavsson was (and still is) and how better off the Leafs would be now if they chased Long Term Injury Reserve Aficionado Stephen Weiss in the summer of 2013 instead of David Clarkson.

Jonas Hiller seeing beach balls, the Oilers aren't very good at hockey, the Leafs could use Eric Staal, the impact of defense on goaltender stats, loving the game again and more in this weeks Roundup.

Wow, can you believe that Jake Gardiner has been healthy scratched two games in a row? I mean, that's nuts. There's gotta be a better way to arrange that blue line without sitting the guy you just signed to a lengthy, expensive contract.
If only we had some smart hockey minds to tell us how to fix our mess. If only there was some group of handsome and sophisticated people out there who can get this defence sorted out. The writers here at TLN certainly don't fit that bill, so let's turn it over to our readers.

According to noted Tyler Bozak lookalike and Dave Nonis relative Darren Dreger, the Toronto Maple Leafs may be interested in acquiring Carolina Hurricanes centre Eric Staal. The question, of course, is would this be a good idea?
