*Note to the reader: I realize that Ryan Kesler has never been a Toronto Maple Leaf, Phil Kessel is no longer a Toronto Maple Leaf, and none of us want to hear Dave Nonis' name ever again here in Leafland. I'm not sorry for writing this anyway.*

TLN's street hockey extraordinaire is still on the road with Five Hole For Food, so I'll be taking over this week's Mailbag over for Jeffler.

They'll be in Calgary tomorrow, Edmonton on the 15th, Victoria on the 17th, and closing things out in Vancouver on the 18th. Visit the Five Hole For Food site for full details.
Without further ado, here's the Mailbag...
