Matt Hunwick might just be the player that people have talked about the least when it comes to the new players that the Leafs acquired this off-season. There's good reason for that - he's been a bottom-pairing defenseman for his entire NHL career, and that's probably what he figures to be for the next two seasons in Toronto. That doesn't mean he can't be a valuable player though, and it doesn't mean he can't exceed expectations either. Hunwick has excellent underlying numbers (as you'll see past the jump), and he might be even more effective for this team than some people are expecting. So if you're really, really passionate about the team, keep reading, and I'll tell you all about the life and times of this new Leafs blueliner.

The Toronto Maple Leafs lost their best offensive weapon, and what remains isn't exactly the most talented group of goalscorers. Where will the offence come from this year? We asked our Roundtable to give us their predictions...

"Where did he come from?" you're probably asking. To that I say "the Kessel trade".
You likely respond with "didn't we just get Kasperi Kapanen, Scott Harrington, and some picks?" I say "yes, but also Nick Spaling."
You say, "I only care about prospects?" I say "well here is a feature on him anyways".

It looks like the Toronto Maple Leafs have decided that their flights are reserved for themselves, and not the people who are there to talk about them. In an obviously Lamoriello-driven move, team broadcasters will have different flight arrangements beginning this season. As well, the players look.. different.
