Thirty years ago today a mad scientist and a time travelling Delorean brought young Wendel Clark 30 years into the future from 1985. The hope was that he would have travelled far enough into the future to see the Leafs win the Stanley Cup. Instead of seeing a bright new future filled with endless possibilities, it just seems to be a lot like 1985 with some flashy new technology.

On this episode we have some Blue Jays talk, try to figure out Crosby's struggles, try to figure out what the heck is happening in Columbus, and Adam might be the worst friend/person ever with an incredible and dastardly prank.

The Columbus Blue Jackets are off to an ugly 0-6-0 start and sport an even uglier -17 goal differential, which is worst in the NHL and far off second-last place Calgary's -9 mark. Things are so bad that GM Jarmo Kekalainen is reportedly considering both a roster shake-up via trade, and axing coach Todd Richards.
From Elliotte Friedman's 30 Thoughts earlier today...
3. The word last weekend was [Kekalainen] wanted to make a trade before a coaching change, and he’s certainly trying. He’s looking for a defenceman who can make life harder on opposing forwards.
There are two problems. First, when you’re struggling, other GMs throw anvils instead of life jackets. Second, it can be very difficult to find trading partners this early. Most teams want to see what they’ve got.
Hi, yes. Paging the Maple Leafs?

It seems as if the end is at hand for L'il Timmy Leiweke, who briefly swooped in and fixed everything that's wrong with the Toronto sports.

It's no secret that the Leafs love them some stats and are very comfortable looking to the internet community to staff their Research and Development department. Kyle Dubas has staffed the department with Rob Pettapiece, Darryl Metcalf, Bruce Peter, and of course TLN's own Cam Charron so far, but the latest person they considered would have been a significant addition indeed.
