At this point all I'm asking for is an effort. Some players gave one and some very did not.

Iconic, bombastic hockey broadcaster Don Cherry loves Toronto Maple Leafs forward Nazem Kadri.
Cherry has a bottomless well of affection for the embattled 24-year-old forward and on Saturday's edition of Coach's Corner he went to bat, once again, for his favourite Maple Leaf.

Ok, so here's the plan. We get this hockey game over with and then we all head to The Roxy. That's the place to be, man. It's where every visiting hockey team (and members of the home team, I'm sure) go after the game to unwind and drink and meet pretty ladies. It's like hockey player heaven, and they even hold parties and bring in the Stanley Cup! No, I mean, not when the Canucks win. They don't win anything. It only happens when a Vancouver-born player wins the Cup elsewhere and brings it home.

There are several high quality defensemen available in the 2015 draft but there's a range of opinion about the 'best available' at the position. Noah Hanifin remains the likely 'first defenseman off the board' but the Russian Prokorov has a lot of momentum as we head toward spring. The other name you hear about in the range of the top five overall? Zach Werenski.

The Calgary Flames really needed a win tonight. While they sit second in the Pacific, they're barely holding on to a playoff spot. But despite burning the Leafs by a score of 6-2 tonight, the Flames were not tonight's biggest winners.
No, that honour belongs to the Leafs fans who decided to go out and spend their Friday evening with friends, family and loved ones. The fans who thought, "hey, I don't need to watch the game tonight, I'd rather do pretty much anything else." They're the biggest winners tonight.
