Is there a trade imminent???

Although Brad Ziemer and Ben Kuzma are two totally different people, they have similar sounding names and thus easy to mix up. However, they work for competing news outlets and both have independently reported that James Reimer is practicing with the Vancouver Canucks at UBC.
What does it all mean?

Well, this SHOULD be my first post-game video for the Leafs' home opener vs the Habs, but instead, I'm going on rant mode. Oh, and you can win a wicked-sweet Jake Gardiner rookie card. I know, right?!

I don't want to be "that guy" who harps on every baseball opinion thrown out by a member of the mainstream press, but sometimes they're just too dumb to pass up.
This is Steve Simmons, a guy who works for the Toronto Sun and TSN. He is a full-time sportswriter. He makes well more than I do, yet he talks about sports like that asshole at your work talks about sports: He judges who is good and who is bad based on who the commentators talk about the most.

Tonight was the designated start of the National Hockey League season. But it wasn't the start. The Toronto Maple Leafs are off all over the world, right now. This was the Toronto Marlies. They played against the Rochester Americans a few steps down the road from the Leafs rink, at a smaller barn called Ricoh Coliseum.
They played very well, too, the Marlies. They won the opener and there were some players that made us very confident that the team's stars—Jake Gardiner and Nazem Kadri—could one day become Toronto Maple Leafs. The home team won, and had a few players in the lineup who looked like legitimate NHLers. Maybe it was more like a Toronto home opener than originally expected.
