We're finally getting close to the trade deadline and the exciting possibility of things happening on a regular basis. Monday has been booked off of work, and fake food poisoning has been planned for following dinner tonight so I can spend the weekend discussing the return for Mark Arcobello with all my internet friends.
That's not sad at all.
Instead of diving deeper into the flawed way I choose to live my life, I've asked three very handsome gentlemen to help me out with some trade deadline related questions for our roundtable.

With the trade deadline right around the corner, it's looking like the Leafs still have a number of roster moves to make. Today, they made a relatively minor one that was inevitable at some point.
Per Sportsnet's Chris Johntston, the Leafs have activated defenceman Jared Cowen off injured reserve from a hip injury.

The week started off pretty busy. Actually the month started off pretty great too. If you told me the deadline would see the Leafs dump Phaneuf, Polak, Spaling, and Matthias, I would have been pretty impressed with that.
Unfortunately the Leafs did all that stuff pretty early in the game, and now that they have to deal with the fact that I still have expectations for certain players to be departing by Monday. With Lou saying he doesn’t like to wait until the last minute, most of my expectations are around the next couple of days.
While sadly not everyone can be traded, there’s still hope for a lot players departing, at the very least the unrestricted free agents. Here’s a quick look at the players who are still here but ideally won’t be come game time on Monday night.

It's fun to judge others, so let's do that now. Let's look back on the past seven days and all that stellar Leafs hockey and rank the Leafs from, I could almost tolerate him to WHY HAVEN'T WE SPALING-ED HIM YET?!
