You can start marking your calendars today, as the Toronto Maple Leafs have officially announced their schedule for the 2016/17 season. There's a lot to digest here, so let's break it down.

With the 2016 NHL draft just a few days away(!), it's time we turn our attention to one of the more cruel annual traditions of the first round and beyond: draft day slides.
We see it every year: Cam Fowler, Brandon Gormley, Emerson Etem, Hunter Shinkaruk, Travis Konecny. The list goes on.
Let's take a look at some of the top-ranked players from this year's draft, and see which ones are candidates to continue the tradition.

Looking for tendencies in the Leafs' drafting approach is obviously still difficult for a few reasons. For one, we've only been through one draft with Mark Hunter calling the shots (no doubt with help from Dubas and a myriad of scouts). And secondly, even in this short time they haven't really established any favourites whatsoever when it comes to where they've taken players from.

Soo.... that happened. Some of us felt that the Leafs would pick up a new goalie, others felt they would hold on, and out of nowhere, the Leafs continued their tradition of stealing any spotlight back for themselves, making the biggest trade on a more active than anticipated day, sending a 1st and a 2nd round pick to Anaheim for Frederik Andersen.
Some love the trade. Some hate it. Now, most of us have had the chance to sleep on it, or if you're a night owl like myself, barricade yourself in thought. Here are a few things worth considering before making a final judgement call.
