When you're stuck in the news cycle surrounding the Leafs, it's tough to remember how much you enjoy hockey and just being a fan, especially recently. It's nice to get a good reminder of what it's like to have fun watching this club, and we all know there's no shortage of memorable highlights to look back on. [Like, way back]
As we head into the new season tomorrow night, check out this video from Tim Thompson (or "b0undless") and get a little fired up for the blue and white, in what we hope is the beginning of finally turning the corner.
Admittedly, I almost* shed a tear when it got to the Dougie wrap-around goal.

A new coach, a plethora of new talent, and now a new leader. The Toronto Marlies announced this afternoon that summer signing Andrew Campbell will be named the team's seventh captain in their eleven-year history.

The Toronto Maple Leafs had initially opted to keep recently acquired Scott Harrington, drafted in the second round of the 2011 NHL Entry Draft by the Pittsburgh Penguins, in the opening lineup for the start of the 2015-2016 season.
Now, though, the team has reversed that decision - and that raises a few questions about the team's claim of 22 year old Frank Corrado off waivers from the Vancouver Canucks.

Yesterday the Leafs apparently informed Stephane Robidas that he wouldn't be in their plans this season, and then he very conveniently became injured, leading to speculation the team would be pushing him to injured reserve to maximize their cap savings instead of sending him off to the Ricoh and only recouping $100K. Today they made things official by placing the 38-year-old on the IR list, and now we have to wonder if he'll stay there for the remainder of a contract that pays him out $3-million in each of the two upcoming seasons.

If you thought that the Leafs had a lot of defencemen already, the situation just got a little bit more confusing, as the blue and white laid claim to Vancouver Canucks defenceman Frank Corrado on waivers this afternoon.
