Sounds right. I think they can sneak him though. RT @FAN590Walker Leafs will place Brandon Kozun on waivers today.— James Mirtle (@mirtle) December 17, 2014
It was fun watching Kozun go all-out in training camp and force the Leafs, who had finally done away with facepunching lines, into keeping him aboard. But an early-season ankle injury threw things off the rails and now it looks like there simply isn't room for him in a healthy lineup.
Given the way teams have been acting on the waiver wire this season, many aren't expecting Kozun to get claimed by another club, but he's definitely not a lock to clear either. We'll find out at noon tomorrow if he's off to a new city or headed to the Ricoh.

With a few more cuts on the way for Team Canada ahead of the annual World Junior tournament, Leafs' prospect Frederik Gauthier appears to be a last-minute decision.

On this episode, we try to fix the Edmonton Oilers from top to bottom and look at the Leafs' hot streak.

I'm not one for trivial things like "win-loss records" or "standings". I'm a simple man who believes that if you beat the best team in hockey, you become the best team in hockey. Tonight, the Toronto Maple Leafs beat the Anaheim Ducks, who are the best team in hockey, so the Toronto Maple Leafs are now the best team in hockey. It's simple science.

It's the marquee Tuesday match-up that everyone's been waiting patiently for as the Leafs take on their longtime rivals: the Anaheim "no longer mighty" Ducks. The stakes are high tonight as the winner gets to keep their magic beans capable of powering their sky-high PDO's, while the loser's will get nothing except the mumps.
The last time these two played was back on March 10, a game the Leafs won 3-1 to push their record to 35-23-8. A playoff berth was all but certain afterwards I'm assuming (I have a regressive memory disorder that completely blacked out anything that happened from March 16 to April 13, so I'm actually not sure, but I mean 78 points in 66 games? Even the Leafs couldn't blow that, right?)
