It's been a month since the trade deadline. The Leafs unloaded the likes of Cody Franson, Mike Santorelli, Daniel Winnik, and David Clarkson as the team took a look to the future. David Clarkson has been injured and his season is likely over. Daniel Winnik has settled in nicely in Pittsburgh. Franson and Santorelli, though, are interesting cases. Through 20 games each with Nashville, the two combine for just 7 points. That's pretty bad. What's weirder though is this is far from the first time the Leafs have had a rental player struggle mightily in their new home. So what gives? Let's take a trip down memory lane...

On today's episode, goalie bodies, the sandwich debate, and Adam, uh, has a thing.

I can just picture it now. The day is January 1st, 2017. The Toronto Maple Leafs are taking on the Buffalo Sabres in the Winter Classic, hosted at the recently renamed and partially renovated Rogers Skydome. Morgan Rielly fires a stretch pass out to Connor McDavid. McDavid pulls a spin-o-rama to get past Jack Eichel, and fires a shot top shelf. Two minutes left in 3-on-3 overtime. Hat trick.
The crowd goes wild. The Leafs improve to 1-36-0. Until then, we're stuck with these two god-awful teams, delivering realistic forms of disappointment to the masses.

Heading into downtown Toronto during rush hour is practically a suicide mission. Everything is so crowded, and you find yourself in a panic, over-thinking every step you make in an attempt to get just a little closer to your destination. As much as that’s a description of my commute to Ricoh Coliseum, it could also be applied to the Toronto Marlies’ playoff push. Tonight, they attempted to further push into the crowd, taking on the Chicago Wolves. However, as the 2-1 result would indicate, it didn't work out.
