Heading into downtown Toronto during rush hour is practically a suicide mission. Everything is so crowded, and you find yourself in a panic, over-thinking every step you make in an attempt to get just a little closer to your destination. As much as that’s a description of my commute to Ricoh Coliseum, it could also be applied to the Toronto Marlies’ playoff push. Tonight, they attempted to further push into the crowd, taking on the Chicago Wolves. However, as the 2-1 result would indicate, it didn't work out.

YAY! THE LEAFS WON! Uh oh. The Leafs won...

Diehard Toronto Maple Leafs fans - those unfortunate, sad souls - have been waiting for the club to procure a bona fide, big bodied, first-line centre ever since Mats Sundin left town nearly a decade ago.
Though dreams of landing Connor McDavid continue to dance in the heads of Leafs fans (and surely Maple Leafs management as well), McDavid's Erie Otters teammate Dylan Strome could fit the bill. The six-foot-three centreman, one of the safest picks in recent history based on his tantalizing combination of size and production, might also be available in the likely event that the Maple Leafs do not win the NHL draft lottery and end up selecting fourth.
Will the Leafs look to take Strome based on his size and position? TSN's Bob McKenzie isn't necessarily convinced.
Let's wade into it after the jump.

Nobody likes the Toronto Maple Leafs. Stephen Brunt called them the least likeable team in hockey, fans aren't showing up to the games anymore, and even the players are beating up on other players.
And if cute movies about love and self-worth have taught me anything, it's that the Leafs are in desperate need of a makeover. They'll never impress anybody by simply being themselves, so something's gotta change!

The dead horse has been beaten on how there are probably a million better things to do than watch the Leafs play hockey. It seems like those takes shouldn't have wasted before they faceoff against the Sabres with five games left. At this point we're likely to not see any movement in the bottom five teams, no one is catching Buffalo for dead last, so if you're watching you're tuning in hoping for signs of players developing or you want to maximize the time you have left with Phil Kessel wearing a Leafs jersey.
