So, here's my position on tanking; no matter how bad you're going to do, you're going to win a game or two. We've seen teams tank so hard that the league has considered stepping in and still win a handful of games. It happens; teams don't try as hard, bounces go your way, you know the deal. So naturally, I'm in favour of the Leafs losing a bunch but especially in favour of their rare wins coming against the Montreal Canadians. Because, you know, beating the Habs is better than being successful. If you lose, whatever, it's a big zero points and you move on to the next loss.
Of course, the Leafs found a way to screw that up tonight.

As reported by Elliotte Friedman and Damien Cox on Hockey Night in Canada's Saturday Headlines segment, Toronto Maple Leafs captain Dion Phaneuf continues to draw interest from the Los Angeles Kings, but could another team be in on him as well?

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.
