Wow, did you guys see Connor McDavid's pregame interview? pic.twitter.com/7uf56oIFzc— The Tank Nation (@TLNdc) December 1, 2015
Connor McDavid is finally going to be forced to do the one thing he's been avoiding for his entire life; facing the Toronto Maple Leafs. I feel for the kid, really; he clearly wanted to be here, to the point where his clavicle acted in his best interests to get him out of the last matchup between these two teams.
But now, the gloves are off, and the Leafs need a loss. Tonight, even in Blue and Orange, he is Toronto's saviour, not Edmonton's, as the Leafs push for a huge zero points. Let's get right to it.

Sometimes, a slap on the wrist is all a person needs. That's what the NHL is gambling on today, as they've decided not to suspend Nazem Kadri for his throat-slash gesture earlier this week.

When you look at P-A Parenteau and where he might end up at the trade deadline, the easiest fits are obviously the top contenders who are looking for a pure rental to round out their roster for a Cup run. Think Winnik last year in Pittsburgh or, as a more expensive example, Antoine Vermette in Chicago. Of course these are all very different players, but the point stands that every season teams looking at their championship window make these types of depth moves to load up.
As of now, Parenteau brings with him a 0.5 point-per-game pace on the season and a $1.5-million cap tag that's off the books in July. He's showcased himself well this year as the team's third-highest goal scorer, and is arguably the person on the Leafs' roster who's the easiest to see moved by end-of-month. Here are a few places where he could be heading.

Out with the Dion Phaneuf era and in with the Auston Matthews era.
