The Toronto Marlies have an 11AM home game today. Why? Because they hate logic (actually, it's a school day game, something they do a few times a season). To some, this isn't very interesting on the surface (if it is? We'll have a recap on TheLeafsNation), but a bit of an eyebrow raiser came in the form of Craig MacTavish being in attendance.
I can't tell you exactly what he's here for, but this is what we do know.

Well. This got out of hand quickly.
On this episode, the guys preview every team in the upcoming Olympics, and Adam reads the highly-anticipated sequel of luvudangler.

Shot clock in Florida midway through the second period
Well, I suppose Jeffler posted the above photo across social media for a reason. For those of you who never saw Space Jam, log off right now and go watch the movie, and THEN come re-join us in the postgame thread. For those that need a refresher, scrawny aliens need to play a basketball game against the Looney Tunes, so they capture the talents of NBA stars and beat up on the Looney Tunes until the second half, when the Tunes are led by Michael Jordan to a heroic comeback and also get clutch performances from Bill Murray and Newman for some reason.
As best as I can tell, the Florida Panthers captured the talent of a real NHL team and just absolutely hammered the Leafs. The final score was 4-1 but that flattered the Leafs somewhat. I have no idea what I just saw.

Tomorrow morning I'm going to take a bus down to Seattle to watch a friggin championship victory parade. I can say with absolute certainty that I would not have enjoyed the Superbowl victory as much as I would have had I not sat through some awful, awful years and monumentally heartbreaking losses (remember what Sean McIndoe said about "THOSE GAMES" last spring? The Seahawks exit against Atlanta to end their season a year ago was one of THOSE GAMES. He was completely right. I'm over Pete Carroll's confusing decision to play prevent defence against Matt Ryan with under a minute to go. I'm even over Matt Hasselbeck "we'll take the ball and we're going to score!" Right now, only the things between now and the next victory will count in the annals of crushing disappointment.)
Anyway, that's not really important to the game between the Maple Leafs and the Panthers tonight. I have a couple of notes about Dave Nonis' reported rant at his team and also a whack of statistics that don't matter.
