I'm not one for trivial things like "win-loss records" or "standings". I'm a simple man who believes that if you beat the best team in hockey, you become the best team in hockey. Tonight, the Toronto Maple Leafs beat the Anaheim Ducks, who are the best team in hockey, so the Toronto Maple Leafs are now the best team in hockey. It's simple science.

It's the marquee Tuesday match-up that everyone's been waiting patiently for as the Leafs take on their longtime rivals: the Anaheim "no longer mighty" Ducks. The stakes are high tonight as the winner gets to keep their magic beans capable of powering their sky-high PDO's, while the loser's will get nothing except the mumps.
The last time these two played was back on March 10, a game the Leafs won 3-1 to push their record to 35-23-8. A playoff berth was all but certain afterwards I'm assuming (I have a regressive memory disorder that completely blacked out anything that happened from March 16 to April 13, so I'm actually not sure, but I mean 78 points in 66 games? Even the Leafs couldn't blow that, right?)

Jeffler is a very busy boy. He is in the holiday spirit and is at the local mall buying lots of gifts for his family and friends and Twitter followers. If you do not receive one, I'd ask him "What's up? Do you not like me?"
As he's very busy, I have taken over the Monday Mailbag and have also trashed the truck and lit it on fire.

Dion Phaneuf's World Junior tournament offered many Canadians their first chance at watching the future Toronto Maple Leafs captain. While Phaneuf has been a polarizing figure for much of his career, especially in Toronto, he was once one of the game's brightest young stars, alongside such names as Sidney Crosby and Alex Ovechkin.

Here is a photo of Swedish star hockey player and Leafs great William Nylander with former Swedish star hockey player and Leafs great Mats Sundin.
That is all.
