Valentine's Day is a strange event for many.
For some, it's the best day of the year. Things are going great in your personal life and it's the cherry on top.
For others, the worst, for obvious reasons.
For Leafs fans, it's probably somewhere in the middle. A Saturday night matchup with Montreal with a chance to beat them at home? Sounds great, until you remember Montreal's leading the Eastern Conference and Toronto's only ahead of Buffalo and Carolina.

Happy Valentines Day! It's up to you how you spend today. Maybe it's with a special someone, maybe it's watching some hockey, maybe it's waiting outside Shoppers Drug Mart for their chocolate to go on clearance. Maybe it's getting ready to have the best 50th Anniversary of the Canadian Flag day party ever (yeah, no).
In any event, I'm going to bring back something we did last year on the The Leafs Nation; low budget Valentines cards! If you'd like to make your own, the header pic works as a template. If you'd like to see last year's, they can be found here.

The Toronto Marlies are creeping their way back into the playoff picture. As such, they needed a big game tonight against their arch-rivals, and boy, did they ever get it, winning 4-2 over the Hamilton Bulldogs in this weekend's lone matchup.

It's been a really, really interesting few days in Leafs Nation. First, we found out that Brendan Shanahan has the blessing of the MLSE Board to strip this team down to the wood and build it up all over again. Then we had the Leafs' best player, Phil Kessel, tell reporters that he loves Toronto, but "if it's not here, it's not here".
It's going down, guys. It's the beginning of the end for this team.
There are, of course, some perceived untouchables. Pretty much everyone agrees that players like Morgan Rielly, William Nylander, and any future draft picks shouldn't be moved for any reason, while others include Kessel in that group.
We asked the TLN staff to share their opinion on the idea of trading Kessel - here's what we got...
