Near the end of the season, on my personal Blogspot Leafs From Rivers, I kicked off a series of posts discussing predictions of how the Leafs would settle with their restricted free agents (RFAs). Now that all of them have signed contracts, I wanted to take some time to review how I did. 

Unfortunately, I wasn't able to complete posts in time on Joshua Leivo and Morgan Rielly, so they are absent from this list. The way I structured each post was I gave an optimistic, realistic, and pessimistic outlook on how the situation might settle, in order to make it feel less "crystal ball"-ish. All the individual posts are linked below so if you're looking for some detail on where I got the numbers, or if you want my take on quick player analyses on each of those players, please take a look.

It's August 1st, and outside of us looking at salary data and calling it a borderline captastrophe (I'll see myself out), there isn't exactly really a lot to talk about today. I wouldn't blame you if, instead of surfing the internet, you went outside and explored the world, or at least played Pokemon or something.

Friend of the blog Avry Lewis-McDougall did just that, cruising by the Air Canada Centre and noticed something... what the hell happened to Mats Sundin?
