The Leafs/Habs rivalry is one of the biggest, longest lasting, and most important rivalries in all of professional sports. To remind us of this, the American Hockey League's schedule involves their affiliates facing each other twice in the preseason, twelve times in the regular season, and potentially a best of seven playoff series.

I know I complain about this every time. It's not even anybody's fault; this league relies on bus travel and it makes things easier. But it's still a bit annoying. Except when the big clubs are playing on the same night, then there's a certain cool factor involved. What isn't cool for the blue and white, however, is a loss, which they walked away with today.

This year, a couple of higher profile players have hit the market. Could the Leafs be interested in moves involving any of them? We'll go through a couple potential candidates bit by bit as we near the deadline. Today, lets go far over to the west coast.

Hey Guys, Remember when Phil Kessel was 'Sluggish'?

I’m going to go on a bit of a rant here.

It wasn’t too long ago (this morning) that people were complaining about Phil Kessel. The Toronto Star published an article (yesterday) saying Kessel looked sluggish during practice Wednesday morning, often dropping to one knee and he was the first one to leave the ice, which is totally fine. Then people all around decided to go after Phil Kessel, saying his season was over. One sluggish practice, and he’s left out for dead.
