On Saturday night, the very defeated Leafs take on the undefeated Ottawa Senators. With just one goal for and seven against in their first two games, the Leafs look, to start the year, about as expected, honestly. Playing three games in four nights is almost never favourable, and for the 0-2 Leafs, it could present some difficulties.

A somewhat renovated Ricoh Coliseum was the home of many debuts tonight, but it was the 19-year-old sophomore who stole the show.

So the Leafs... 

Well. It's a rebuild. Guys, it's game two and already, there are only so many different ways that I can tell you that the team looks like this by design. 

(Either that, or Mike Babcock is still secretly rooting for his old team to win, in which case there's literally nothing we could do tonight.)
