Today was locker room cleanout day for the Toronto Marlies. The process basically involves everybody getting up super early in the morning, and being told what they're expected to do next season, before grabbing everything they need, addressing the media, and heading wherever it is they need to be. For the media, it's the same start, but instead of being lectured, you're the ones trying to think of the last questions you can ask to get quotes out of these guys for a while. It's an interesting experience, and hopefully I can integrate the stuff I got today into some neat articles for you all. 

With that said, we won't jump straight into that. Today, it's a mailbag. Probably not the last one of the week either; there were a ton of questions today and I don't like these posts to go on forever.

To submit a question, send me a tweetemail meask me, or leave a comment.

Editor note: In case you missed it (because we did) our friends at DailyFaceoff interviewed Jay and Dan a couple weeks ago.

DailyFaceoff is based out of Canada, so naturally we tune in to TSN and other Canadian media outlets, and for our Canadian viewers, I know you love Jay Onrait and Dan O’Toole. They were in Canada, but now they have become the go-to for hockey highlights in the United States. After moving to Fox Sports 1, Jay and Dan consistently kick the Fox Sports Live coverage off with the NHL playoffs.

I recently got a chance to have a chat with Jay and Dan to discuss the playoffs, the move to Fox Sports 1 and loads of other intriguing NHL topics. Enjoy!

Hello Canada and hockey fans in the United States andNewfoundland…and the rest of the world too because this is the Internet,after all.  I’ve been watchingthe playoffs a lot lately. I mean it would be infinitely better if the Leafswere in it but there’s something to be said about watchinghockey without a bias. 

The Habs-Bruins series was fantastic. The one downer? Theyrenot The Leafs. Despite the great puck, I almost had to look away from my TV (Ihave an expensive TV).  Speaking ofbuying expensive fancy TVs, I’ve been getting good use out of myLeafs-themed Scotiabank card.

In case you missed it last night, the Toronto Marlies were eliminated from the Calder Cup Playoffs, losing 6-2 in Game 7 of the Western Conference Finals. Obviously, the recap exists to give you immediate information about the game in hand, so I wanted to address a few things this morning.
