"He says he's rather disappointed with the lack of progress so far" says the TSN teaser for their video promoting a clip of a Nazem Kadri interview at a golf tournament. It's rare to have any kind of real hockey news in August, so I have to say my interest was piqued, and I was looking forward to hearing Kadri have some harsh words (although nobody will match Mikhail Grabovski this summer, ever) on the Leafs management for not locking up Kadri yet.
And then you hear Kadri's interview and you hear, well, this:
You know I know both of us want me in a Maple Leaf blue and white jersey next year so I think we'll make something happen but as far as that goes right now you know we're still standing in the same spot.

There's only a month left until training camp starts, which means we're soon to be done living through the slowest time of year for hockey talk. For Leafs fans, we wait for Franson and Kadri to have their new contracts sorted out, while arguing every day about whether this team has made the right moves so far this summer. It'll all be on the ice starting in September.

All this Gretzky trade talk the last week stirred up the old story machine in my head. Looking at some of the other players involved in the trade I ran across Marty McSorley's name.

Like it or not, there's a strong chance that the Toronto Maple Leafs enter 2013-14 with Tyler Bozak manning the pivot on the top line alongside Phil Kessel. The Leafs Nation has beaten to death why that's not the optimal situation, but it's high time the focus turns to making the best out of a bad situation.
So, if Bozak and Kessel are on the top unit, who should be the winger alongside them?
