The Mailbag took a week off due to last Monday's trade deadline, but we're back! The Leafs have been a different kind of wacky, wild beast in the past two weeks, and your questions reflect that. Let's jump right in!

It was an exciting week in Leafs land. Not, "hey we got a win" exciting or "hey check out the return we got for Parenteau" exciting, but thanks to the Marlies invasion we can look back and find a few positives.
We're going to try doing something a little different with Power Rankings, and rather than painfully assign rankings to the top 20 roster players, we're going to look at the top ten Leafs moments over the past 7 days.

"Three-game losing streak" hasn't been in this team's vocabulary since their season ended in a first round playoff collapse last year. Then again, neither was getting shut out, but the Utica Comets ended that by blanking them on Friday. Today, the Marlies looked for revenge and a high note to end a lacklustre weekend, but couldn't get it in what ended up being a 5-4 loss.

It was a good game, it was a bad game, it was the 2015-16 Leafs.

It's been an exciting week for Leaf fans, with the post-deadline call-ups we got to finally see the first wave of prospects that promise to be a key part of the future success of the franchise. Nylander, Kapanen, Soshnikov, Hyman and Leipsic have all had impressive NHL debuts and are showing that each has a strong chance of being a big part of the Leafs for a long time. The guys coming up from the Marlies have had all the attention this week, and rightfully so but with the CHL regular season nearing an end there are going to be a lot of big games upcoming for the younger prospects in the Leafs system.
