It may have been against a very young and inexperienced Detroit Red Wings group, but credit where credit is due - this may have been one of the Toronto Maple Leafs' best showings this preseason, specifically on the defensive side of the puck. Still, there's a lot to learn (and just as many cuts to come) before Wednesday's season opener.

I took some heat in my last LGD for saying I was excited for the preseason to end, but this time I feel like I can say that again without much argument.  It's been a lengthy and certainly at times interesting preseason, but the Leafs have hit an exhibition skid, most of the jobs seem to be earned, and it's just time to get onto some meaningful hockey.  So let's all celebrate what this pre-game represents: the end of the preseason, and the start of an 82-game rollercoaster.

Unlike my colleagues, I see an untapped potential with the talent the Leafs have assembled. I really do. It just requires someone forward-thinking enough to put the pieces together the right way. So that's what I did.

Just like the juggalos that he used in his header imagine, Bobby's a joker if he thinks this team has untapped potential. An NHL lineup gutted of anything resembling elite talent and patched together with bit players and PTOs, this Leafs team isn't going to surprise and overwhelm anyone. Though, #nice call in dressing Rich Clune. 

But really, let me tell you what Toronto's lineup is going to look like. This group might be a porta-potty fire, but as my colleagues like to tell me, my takes are ice cold.
