Leafs second home rink in Kanata
Just a short Leafs GameDay thread today. Headed out of the town to hang out with some family, and won't be able to break down exactly what is wrong with the Ottawa Senators this year. Don't worry, though, the Leafs still have games against the Sens throughout this season and we'll be able to get to that at a later date. I don't think the Sens underlying numbers are enough of an argument to think they'll do any better this year than last. Perhaps they caught lightning in a bottle a year ago, but they were the 7th best possession club in the National Hockey League, upset the Montreal Canadiens in the playoffs and made it ~somewhat~ of a series.
Problems exacerbated in the summer though. The team has no money and while they did a great job of replacing Daniel Alfredsson with Bobby Ryan and Clarke MacArthur, both have whom have been outstanding for Ottawa, the rest of the roster is playing well-below where they were a year ago.

In this episode, Chris and Steve are a little drunk. Adam does his best to be, you know, a professional, but pfffft.

On December 24, Santa Claus will use the power of Christmas Magic to fly all around the world delivering presents to good boys and girls. How he is able to visit all these kids in so little time remains a mystery - but the presents that await on Christmas Morning is a testament to his effectiveness.
We here at the Nation Network possess no such powers. So if you are in the market for an OilersNation, CanucksArmy or a LeafsNation hoodie today is the last day you can order them in time for Christmas. The sale closes tonight at 7 PM MST and odds are they won't be back until next Christmas so get yours while you can.
These babies cost $60 each and a portion of each hoodie sold will go to the Children's Hot Lunch program at the Amiskwaciy Academy in Edmonton.

Collecting and commenting on the major stories surrounding the Maple Leafs as recounted by friendly members of the mainstream media and bloggers. If you have a story you'd like to have featured, sent me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Bit of a rough week for the buds, as their losing streak was pushed to five with a loss to the San Jose Sharks on Tuesday. They needed their goalie to steal them a game against Dallas, and the goalie did, so there's a little bit more optimism in the air Friday morning than yesterday morning.
But we begin the weekly recap with Nazem Kadri's heavy heart.
