With a week to go until the trade deadline we're about to shift into full blown rumour mongering mode around here. With a roster built to be deadline rentals, this is our time. The Phaneuf trade has also reminded us that anything is possible and that might make it difficult to not be disappointed next Monday if the changes aren't significant.
While there's a lot coming at us in a short period of time, it's worthwhile to look at the deadline story so far, and revisit some of the TLN #content that will be relevant this week.

Tonight, the Leafs hosted the Philadelphia Flyers in a nine-goal, torrid affair.
Picking up one more point than management probably would've appreciated as they fell in 5-4 overtime, the Leafs continued the trend of a decent possession game met with an L on the scoresheet.

He may not be injured, but the Leafs have added Leo Komarov to the list of unavailable players with his three game suspension. At the same time the list of players available for recall is shrinking as Scott Harrington has just been shutdown for the season.
In good-ish news, Shawn Matthias is making his return tonight, replacing Komarov.
As for the Flyers, a win tonight allows them to cling to some small hope that they could be a playoff team this year, and that too could be beneficial to the Leafs as having one fewer seller and one more buyer at the trade deadline should increase the success of the Toronto fire sale.
