You get the power to judge professional athletes on their job performance! With just one click! Think of how good that will feel! And, as a community, we'll let the entire world know just how much we adore Mo Rielly, and how little we think of... Oh, I don't know... Roman Polak?

The Toronto Marlies are taking an extended break from Ricoh Coliseum for the last time this season, touring Winnipeg and St. John's for two weeks before beginning a two-month stretch where the team doesn't go more than a weekend without a home game. Tonight, they kicked things off against the Manitoba Moose and walked away with a relatively stress-free 6-2 victory.

It was a night of celebration for the Toronto Maple Leafs. A few people had some endurance milestones; Dion Phaneuf was playing in his 800th game and Mike Babcock was coaching his 1000th, but what really mattered was the pre-game tribute to Darryl Sittler, whose famous 10-point game was 40 years ago this week.
Oddly enough, the Leafs and New Jersey Devils decided that a fitting tribute would be to put the sticks away and avoid scoring at all costs. Even with the shootout considered, the teams only put five pucks in the back of the net in a 3-2 Leafs shootout victory.
