I don't know why the season isn't over yet, but here we are, a month to go and we're evaluating the performance of the 27th placed team who went 1-2-0 this week including a 6-1 loss. What do we have to show for it? One of the few players who hasn't been an issue this year sent home for showing up late to a team meeting hosted by a coach who won't have his job next year. Just another week in Leafs land, so here we trek once again into the abyss of player power rankings.

Toronto Maple Leafs centre Nazem Kadri was late for a team meeting this weekend, and as a result, he won't play on Monday night against the New York Islanders. Hopefully there's a lesson for Kadri in this, and the mini-controversy can now be put to bed, where it won't oversleep.
"It's brutal," Kadri said of his mistake, and the resulting consequences.

Trade deadline has come and gone, teams are making one last surge for a playoff spot, and impact players are dropping like flies. First Star, Worst Star is as healthy as ever though!

One of the most understated adversities that an American Hockey League player or team has to overcome? The grind that is the weekend-heavy schedule. If you need any proof of this, look no further than the Toronto Marlies this weekend. They took on the Adirondack Flames at 7PM on Friday, and finished the game around 10PM. Seventeen hours later, they dropped the against them again, and finished around 6PM. Twenty hours after that (yay daylight savings!), they were on the ice again, facing the Utica Comets, and ultimately winning by a score of 2-1.

Talking about your reptilian brain, sticking up for yourself, and at least showing up.
