With the deadline over we now can begin our countdown towards the end of the 2015-16 season. The Leafs have 21 games remaining, tied for second most games remaining in the league (only the Islanders have 22 remaining).

If today was any indication, that won't be the case. Armed with a few alternative reinforcements, the Marlies handily beat the second overall by a score of 4-0.

The trade deadline has come and gone, and while Toronto wasn't at all active on deadline day they still accomplished a tremendous amount of work in the months leading up to it. In total, 12 bodies and one draft pick were moved out by the Leafs and 11 bodies (three of them prospects) and six draft picks came back the other way.
