I went into this morning excited that the Leafs were already down Shawn Matthias. Waking up and immediately seeing Roman Polak and Nick Spaling make departures has essentially helped the trade deadline deliver on my expectations. Everything else that happens beyond now is just gravy, beautiful, delicious gravy.
This week the Power Rankings are going to focus on the keepers. It's time to rank the Leafs top to bottom on how much we want to see the players sticking with the Leafs after the trade deadline. Take this with a bit of a grain of salt, since really after the top three it starts becoming more about this deadline not being the best time to maximize a return for that player.

Does today seem like a good day for new beginnings or what? The Blue Jays have officially opened camp down in Dunedin, Florida, taking the first steps on their path towards defending the American League East title they won last fall, and my coverage of the club has moved into these splashy new digs!

I took last weekend off to go to New York on a whim. It was pretty cool; even if I couldn't see a third of the ice at the Barclays Center and Grabovski and Kulemin made me feel too nostalgic for comfort. But I'm back, and I'm here to take on some of your questions. Let's begin!

With news that the Leafs had traded away two roster players this morning, it was inevitable that we would see the team recall a couple of players to fill out the lineup.

Mondays, am I right?
A little after 8:30 on Monday morning, the Leafs announced they'd traded two of their upcoming UFA assets to San Jose- Roman Polak and Nick Spaling- in exchange for a second-round pick in each of 2017 and 2018, as well as Raffi Torres.
