Tuukka Rask winning a Stanley Cup as a starting goaltender probably won't annoy Leafs fans, will it?

EA Sports and NHL 14 have completed their annual playoff emulator! They take the current playoff tree, match all the teams who are facing each other with their updated rosters, and see who the game predicts will win the Stanley Cup.

In the email I got from EA Sports they gave me highlights from each round, including who won each series and how long it took!

Here are this year's results...

Lessons Learned?

I haven't had much to say about the Leafs' recent hiring of Brendan Shanahan as the team's president and "alternate governor", since it's tough to have an opinion on a guy who hasn't run an NHL club in any capacity in the past. However, after Monday's press conference, where the new boss was introduced to fans and media, the interviews have been non-stop from both "Shanny" and the man who hired him, MLSE president Tim Leiweke.

Mailbag: Over And Out

With the Leafs' season done, I imagine that mailbag questions are going to be a bit weirder. Mostly, "what do you think about this draft prospect", "who should the Leafs sign", and "why does Tim Leiweke appear to be flying a giant blimp over South East Etobicoke". I'm not good at following amateur prospects, I don't like playing crystal ball, and I'm voting for whichever mayoral candidate declares war on Mimico.

So during the offseason, instead of doing a mailbag every Monday, I'll do one every time I get five questions that I want to answer. So really, it's in your hands.

To submit a question, send me a tweetemail meask me, or leave a comment.

If the HFBoards Ran the Leafs

Coming off a historic collapse, and missing the playoffs for the 8th time in 9 years it seems reasonable that the Leafs are badly in need of change. The Shanahan hiring is a good start, and we hope Carlyle will soon be shown the door, leaving us with two birds left. The General Manager and Assistant GM team, and the players themselves. I've decided to take the two birds with one stone approach and today we're going to hand the GM duties over to the HFBoards and let them rebuild the roster.

You wouldn't believe what Joffrey Lupul said about the Leafs leadership qualities

There was a lot said today by Tim Leiweke and Brendan Shanahan as the Toronto Maple Leafs made a big scene in unveiling their shiny new President and Director of Hockey Operations, making the media rounds and holding a press conference. It was also locker clean-out day, which is usually when we get to learn who was injured.

But beneath all that was a Joffrey Lupul quote that's been buried behind a lot of other stuff.
