As the Leafs losing streak hits hilarious proportions, the rumors have ramped up surrounding the team. By all accounts, it sounds like the team will be selling off what they can at the trade deadline. That speculation was heightened immensely yesterday when TSN reported on the likelihood of players like Daniel Winnik, Tyler Bozak, and Joffrey Lupul being moved. Among that group of players of course was Cody Franson, a pending unrestricted free agent who Darren Dreger believes has an 85% chance of being moved by March 2nd.
Today, ESPN's Pierre LeBrun poured more gasoline on the fire when he reported in his Rumblings blog that GM Dave Nonis did not fly out with the rest of the team from Nashville Tuesday night. Rather, Nonis will stick around to scout Thursday's game. As LeBrun points out, that's likely to do some research on the possibility of a trade involving former Predator Cody Franson.

ICYMI, the Toronto Maple Leafs have been all kinds of horrible over the past several weeks. Like, losing-ten-games-in-a-row horrible. With that streak, the Leafs have dropped down the standings and are now pretty securely in the Connor McDavid sweepstakes.

At this point in my life, I've become the master of these 11AM school day games. The rules are simple - bring something to shield your ears. You gain next to nothing hearing the game on a day like this; mostly because it's drowned out by screaming children. I listened to music most of the game and I was at peace.
The Toronto Marlies, on the other hand, were not at peace, as they lost this one by a score of three to one.

The Leafs may never win again.
