Just to update you on some of the proceedings around The Leafs Nation HQ.

As a website, we've had a very good summer. Even without any Maple Leafs hockey to discuss, we're drawing people in to talk hockey and our readership has grown substantially. So to all of our new and returning readers, thanks.

Another order of business, Lindy's Sports' Leafs magazine recently dropped into newsstands. For $10, you can get cover-to-cover quality Leafs content, and there's quite a bit of TLN representation in there. JP Nikota, as well as our new man Gus Katsaros, are both prominently featured. I also have an article on the state of the Leafs' defence, fancystat-free, with a small exerpt here:

Guys, Brian Burke isn't perfect. Well, he's far from it. In fact, he's been pretty mediocre during his tenure in Toronto and he'd be the first to tell you that. But I think the moves he's made this summer—trading for James van Riemsdyk, signing Jay McClement, getting rid of Luke Schenn and Colby Armstrong—are signs of progress and that he's at least recognizing deficiencies.

Anyway, here are some helpful tips for Brian Burke from ESPN.com writers Tim Boughton, Paul Grant and David Walter. They are really quite something. Here are a few of my favourites:

What the hell is Brylin doing in a shootout?

This post will focus solely on the Essential Game, as it turns out I had alot to say on the matter. It's really two games, and you should know that it's very depressing. But nothing better demonstrates what Leafs fans have gone through the past 7 years than these two games in April of 2007.
