It’s a weird day when Leafs twitter bemoans the fact that Toronto has put an enforcer on waivers. Of course if that enforcer is Troy Bodie, and means a greater likelihood that Colton Orr and/or Frazer McLaren will start the season as Leafs I guess there’s some reason for outrage.

It's been a week of preseason now, and we've confirmed that Phil Kessel is the best. Has been for a minute, will continue to be. It was just another meeting with the Buffalo Sabres, this time at home, but Kessel and last year's top line quickly rediscovered their flow and once again carried the team on offense.
This one had some ups and downs, though. Killer offensive line of the future? Disappointing night from some players competing for roster spots? A potential injury to a key player? All that and more, baby, as the Leafs beat the Sabres 3-2 in a shootout.

It's been just about five years since the Toronto Maple Leafs said "Hey, do you know what we need to add? A Kessel", and took the steps to do so, offering a kings ransom to the Boston Bruins for Phil in September 2009 - a move which gave them one of their best wingers of the modern era. The year is now 2014, and while he doesn't have the same hype around him, his younger brother Blake is joining the organization as one of four new signings for the Toronto Marlies.

As one half of the Winnipeg Blue Bombers, Colt Knorr has been an old-school favourite - and go-to guy for Carlyle - in Toronto for awhile. But facepunchers are a dying breed, and Orr doesn’t offer a heck of a lot beyond facepunching. Oh and guess what? He barely even facepunches anymore, and when he does, he's bad at it.
