Hi, TLNers. I'm on vacation in Barbados this week. As such, I am drinking a lot of rum punch and thinking about hockey. Rum punch is a lot of rum in a lot of orange and mango and pineapple juice with a lot of mint leaves in it, all stirred up and served over ice. Here are three hockey trades I've come up with that I think are relatively reasonable that the Leafs should try and get done by next Monday's trade deadline. If you think I'm crazy, like... I just finished telling you about the rum punch.
I am drunk.

If there's one thing better than winning a professional hockey game, it's winning it before lunch time. The Toronto Marlies did just that today, winning their first school day game of the year by a score of 3-1 in front of 8000 screaming children.

THE LEAFS LOST TO NASHVILLE?!?!? AAAHHHHHHHH... actually... here's why I'm OK with it.

A few weeks ago, we asked you to play the role of Lou Lamoriello (or Kyle Dubas, for those of you who read your hockey news on your phones) and submit your trade proposals to make the team better, be it now or eventually. Of course, a quarter of the organization has moved in that time frame, but a few ideas survived.
Now, its in your hands. It's up you to decide who the best Armchair GM in the classroom is.

From the beginning of this whole Jonathan Drouin saga, it seemed like just a matter of time before we heard the Leafs being name-dropped as a potential suitor. After all, they are a buyer in the biggest way when it comes to trying to accumulate young talent, and rumours seem to follow them more than any other team given the major media market in Toronto.
The Drouin talk has quieted down a little over the last couple weeks while he waits at home for a deal, but in the past 24-48 hours or so it's been ramped up again. As Bob McKenzie from TSN explains, it seems as though teams are getting wind of what's being proposed by others, and many are circling back to make a push before the deadline. It appears the Leafs are now part of what's become a long list.
