Hamilton is an interesting place. I don't think Torontonians are still the type to mock the area, given that the housing prices have gone up so quick that the entire younger generation is going to have to move there before they turn 30 anyway.
With that said, we can point to their a nearly-NHL quality building with nobody more than an OHL team to play in it; that changes for one night only as the Leafs take on the Red Wings in the last of their kinda-neutral site games. The Leafs are tired after a blowout loss to Montreal. The Wings are well rested after spending their off day being classy and underrated, or whatever it is they do.

Josh Leivo is one of the last surviving pieces of rebuilds past; of Brian Burke era Draft picks, he's one of six who still remaining under contract with the team. But at as a 23-year-old, his time is starting to run out if he plans on making a graduation to the big club. This has made his quiet preseason surprising; not only has he not really contributed, he's also straight up not been in the lineup.
If I had to guess, there's a level of intent to this; the Leafs are likely trying to set him up to clear through waivers in the next few days.
