The biggest sub-story of yesterday's trade with the Ottawa Senators, no doubt, was the Toronto Maple Leafs moving on from their long-time captain Dion Phaneuf. At the same time, though, there are other ways that this trade impacts the team. For example, one can look at the roster shuffle it causes for the Toronto Marlies, and how it makes a great team somehow better.

Chris Johnston of Sportsnet is reporting that Colin Greening has joined the Leafs in Edmonton and is practicing with the team.
The 29-year-old winger is expected to practice with the NHL team in Edmonton on Wednesday afternoon after being acquired from Ottawa in the nine-player Dion Phaneuf blockbuster.
With Lupul, Matthias, Bozak, and van Riemsdyk all out, the Leafs are probably wise to bring in an additional forward and do so without disrupting the Marlies any further.

Now that we've seen a significant contract head out the door, I feel reinvigorated about this series. The Leafs clearly aren't only looking at moving their rentals, they're thinking big picture, and one of those big picture moves could be shipping out Jonathan Bernier.

It was just like any other Sunday. Well, sort of. For whatever reason, I had woken up brighter and earlier than usual, and so had a bunch of my friends. Maybe it was meant to be, because on January 31st, 2010, the hockey world was flipped upside down by the Toronto Maple Leafs.

Think of the Leafs at the start of the season. A roster set up to fail, am I right? Okay, now place Joffrey Lupul and James van Riemsdyk on the IR. Oh, and keep Shawn Matthias out of the lineup with a less severe injury as well. Also, give Tyler Bozak an illness. Maybe, just maybe, trade Dion Phaneuf as well. That gives you a pretty barebones Wednesday lineup, but hey, at least the Flames will be exciting!
Wait, they put their worst goalie in net? Oh, and they scratched three key players because they were presumably, uhh, "not feeling great" the morning after watching the Super Bowl? This game has "least entertaining of the season" written all over it.
Did it ever live up to that hype, as both teams stumbled towards the finish line until the Flames skated away victorious, outscoring the Leafs 4-3 after sixty dreadful minutes.
