It was a good game, it was a bad game, it was the 2015-16 Leafs.

It's been an exciting week for Leaf fans, with the post-deadline call-ups we got to finally see the first wave of prospects that promise to be a key part of the future success of the franchise. Nylander, Kapanen, Soshnikov, Hyman and Leipsic have all had impressive NHL debuts and are showing that each has a strong chance of being a big part of the Leafs for a long time. The guys coming up from the Marlies have had all the attention this week, and rightfully so but with the CHL regular season nearing an end there are going to be a lot of big games upcoming for the younger prospects in the Leafs system.

For a while, it looked like the Toronto Marlies were going to have a repeat of yesterday's shocking shutout loss to the Utica Comets. But tonight's game against the Rochester Americans did have a few signs of life in it, even if it provided the same unwelcomed result, in the form of a 4-2 loss.

For the Toronto Maple Leafs, this wasn't a night for the present, but one for the future. One where the focus wasn't on tthe players who skated through the last sixtyish games kicking and screaming, but for the ones just starting their NHL careers in hopes of being ready next year. In a night that began as a look back at Dion Phaneuf's tenure, it was the young blood that ran the show in a - wait for it - hard fought, thoroughly controlled, one-goal regulation loss.
