The Toronto Maple Leafs had initially opted to keep recently acquired Scott Harrington, drafted in the second round of the 2011 NHL Entry Draft by the Pittsburgh Penguins, in the opening lineup for the start of the 2015-2016 season.

Yesterday the Leafs apparently informed Stephane Robidas that he wouldn't be in their plans this season, and then he very conveniently became injured, leading to speculation the team would be pushing him to injured reserve to maximize their cap savings instead of sending him off to the Ricoh and only recouping $100K. Today they made things official by placing the 38-year-old on the IR list, and now we have to wonder if he'll stay there for the remainder of a contract that pays him out $3-million in each of the two upcoming seasons.

With the training camp squad back in town following a string of exhibition games in Newfoundland, the team has announced a stunning nineteen assignments to the Orlando Solar Bears tonight, bringing the roster down to a relatively playable size.

Twas the week before the NHL season openers,
and all through the league,
Raffi Torres was throwing elbows into heads,
and Toronto's goalie situation was creating intrigue...
Have I mentioned that I hate goaltending controversies?
