When Leo Komarov left the Leafs at the end of the 2012/13 season, I was upset. He was the type of player I loved watching the most, from an entertainment perspective. By that, I mean, he was a jerk and a half. But he was Toronto's jerk and a half. He was Toronto's friendly, weird talking creature from a far away land, who just happened to irritate anything that wasn't in blue and white. Leo Komarov was Toronto's Alf. But he left. But now he's back! Maybe not in pog form, but he's back.

After the pair of split-squad games last night, the Leafs were expected to reduce their camp roster heavily at some point today. Looks like they've done it.
The list of players cut includes the following: Greg McKegg, David Broll, Connor Brown, Jamie Devane, Carson McMillan, Brady Vail, Brad Ross, Eric Knodel, Andrew MacWilliam, Brendan Mikkelson, Tom Nilsson, Christopher Gibson (goaltender) and Cal Heeter (goaltender).

Wednesday evening the Leafs played a pair of split-squad games against the Senators. Two games, happening at the same time, 450 kilometres apart.
It was a lot to wrap our heads around, but we came through. Find Jeff's recap of the Toronto game right here.
Over in Ottawa, the Leafs sent a paper-thin lineup to take on guys like Karlsson, Ryan, Turris, and MacArthur. The game went as expected, but on the backs of Carrick and Rielly, the Leafs kept it close to the end.
