Tonight we have a matchup between two teams who have long been basement dwellers in the league. One of the two teams has been drafting well and was finally ready to make significant moves to push for a playoff spot this season, the other is the Leafs.
We also get our first look at Nikolai Kulemin as the opposition tonight (unfortunately without his loveably crazy BFF), and we can assume he wants to remind Carlyle and Nonis that they shouldn’t have let him go.

Well this is a bit of a surprise, but it's funny that this move comes at a time when Kadri trade rumors have been emerging, and there's also coverage of Tavares and Kadri during their London days ahead of tonight's matchup between the Leafs and Isles.

I'm still getting used to being an adult. Like, having a job that isn't writing about hockey and stuff. I like what I do, but man, I can count my time slept every night in minutes. I was already sleepless beforehand, but this is a whole different story. That's enough about me, though - it's time to answer some questions!

Nylander The Best
In case you weren't aware, William Nylander is very good at hockey. The eighth overall pick in the 2014 NHL Entry draft, it didn't take long for Nylander to make a good impression on his MODO teammates. In his first SHL game of the season, Nylander scored the game winner in the third to give MODO a 2-1 victory over Linkoping.
