The Toronto Maple Leafs are clearly in the midst of a transition. Over half the publicly-known staff has been fired, many players have been traded, and many will be walked away from. But it seems like there's still a lot left to come in terms of roster shuffling; the group from Game 82 will almost assuredly not be the one that skates on the ice for Game 1 in October.
It takes two to tango, though, and in the New Jersey Devils, the Leafs may find a dance partner.

It's very easy to overlook Oliver Kylington based on his boxcar numbers but the resume is strong and the scouting report impressive. He arrived in the Swedish Hockey League at 16 and could be the best skating defender available at this summer's draft. Oliver Kylington is a significant talent.

The Stanley Cup Playoffs kick off tonight and I don't think I've ever seen a bracket more engaging or unpredictable. The first round matchups couldn't have turned out any better, providing us with enough narratives to give a mittenstringer a seizure.

This was a must win game, and for once, it had nothing to do with implications and everything to do with the quality of opponent. Quite honestly, the Iowa Wild are far from stellar; in fact, they're the worst team in the AHL this year, currently twelve points back of 29th. They don't even have a McDavid to tank for, either! This should have been an easy two points for the playoff-pushing Marlies.
Sixty minutes and two goals later, it appeared to be just that, as Toronto took home a commanding 5-2 win.
