It's amazing how beloved Leo Komarov became in Toronto in so little time. Despite only playing 49 games and 550 minutes, everybody's favourite Finn/Russian/Estonian who also speaks Swedish and English may have the highest approval rating of any non-core Leafs player in the past couple of years.

There's something I really like about Drew MacIntyre. Besides the fact he appears to be genuinely nice and friendly to everyone who comes into contact with him, and the whole being really good at stopping pucks thing, he's not afraid to give you an honest answer. It may not be the one that fits the story you're working on, but I'd rather hear somebody's actual thought than a cliche that fits my agenda.

As time passed, Bibeau's stat lines didn't strike anyone as "amazing", or even "good". In fact, when TLN put together its Leafs Prospects Midterm Rankings, Bibeau didn't even make our list of honourable mentions, let alone our top twenty list.

I received a couple of really good questions when doing yesterday's mailbag, that deserved a longer response than a paragraph or two. One of them was as follows:

Let's say the Leafs don't trade Phaneuf after all. Do you think they would be wise to strip him of the C?

There are a couple of things that you have to look at here.
