As a pending unrestricted free agent, Mikhail Grabovski has seen his name pop up in more than a few trade rumours over the last while. Fortunately for those who believe he’s a superb player (and he is, even when he isn’t making much glorious goal), there are solid indications that he isn’t going anywhere.

It was 46 years ago to the day, February 9th, 1966, that then Eagles executive Ed Snider (who is also a movie producer now...no, really) and his group were awarded one of six expansion NHL franchises that were to begin play in the 1967-68 season. The Philadelphia bid came and pulled the rug from under what appeared to be a lock in a bid from Baltimore. In retrospect, one can only help but wonder how hockey in Maryland's largest city might have affected the life plans of one Omar Little.
Coincidentally, February 9th is also an important date in recent Leafs history.

The stretch drive has begun in the NHL, and in the Eastern Conference, the standings seem to shift every night as there are five teams with a legitimate shot at bumping each other around at the bottom of the Conference's Top 8. Every couple of weeks, we'll take a look at team's predictive stats: the rate they need to achieve points to hit the current playoffs entry point of 93 points, as well as their goal differential, PDO and Fenwick Tied, measures that help us predict whether a team has earned their spot in the standings.

Maybe a puck shaped like this wouldn't sneak through the "Goose-Hole"
Since everyone found yesterday's sequence so easy, here is another one for you to chew on:

This would keep Dion Phaneuf busy until August.
Allow me to introduce the Leafs Nation Hockey-Sense.
Every so often I'll post a series of numbers. Your job is to figure out which number is next the in sequence. Sometimes they'll be Leafs specific, sometimes they wont.
