Last night the Leafs made another step in turning the page on the last few years of garbage by unveiling their new logo - a throwback to their old winning days, and an attempt at making players proud again to throw on the jersey.
The jersey styles that will accompany the new logo obviously aren't finalized yet, but we can guess they'll be pretty standard fare, at least for the home and away threads. But there's still an opportunity for the team to create a third jersey, and with speculation that they'll host an outdoor game at BMO field next January, last night's big reveal probably won't be the last of the year.

If I had to choose one player who will definitely, most certainly be traded by the Toronto Maple Leafs this month, it'd be P.A. Parenteau. Saying that, Roman Polak is a close second. It's already been reported that the big, tough blueliner is on a number of teams' radars, and while that may come as a surprise to Leafs fans who would be thrilled to flip him, you can't underestimate the draw of grit and depth at the deadline.
Here's the top five landing spots for Roman Polak, if (when) Toronto trades him...

Lost in all of the re-branding hullabaloo was the fact that the Toronto Maple Leafs played a hockey game less than an hour before. To be fair, there was a large stretch of this game where one shouldn't have cared in the slightest. Heck, if you're all-in on The Tank Nation, the end result was probably not one that made you stats-happy.
But there's something about beating the Bruins that makes you happy. Tonight, the Leafs did so in dramatic fashion, coming back to win 4-3 in overtime.

On this episode, the guys talk about a whole mess of things. Hockey gets in there eventually. McDavid and John Scott, I think.

There it is, and it looks damn good. We've been following the 'New Maple Leafs Logo' beat for a week now, discussing early rumours and concepts as well as looking at all Leafs logos past and present (and ranking them). Now we finally get to see it.
