"The Show Must Go On" is probably an appropriate title for today's Leafs Game Day post. Many of my coworkers at CBC received some pretty disheartening though not unexpected news today that the CBC will be making massive cuts. But what happens now? Does everyone just go home?

As the Leafs see another season wind down without being in the playoff picture, there's a finger that nobody sane could point at; goaltending. Jonathan Bernier and James Reimer have won this team games they've had no business winning, which is probably the reason it took until Game 80 for the last wheel to fall off. But enough about that. Let's talk about a previous Leafs starting goaltender who retired today, Andrew Raycroft.
