As one half of the Winnipeg Blue Bombers, Colt Knorr has been an old-school favourite - and go-to guy for Carlyle - in Toronto for awhile. But facepunchers are a dying breed, and Orr doesn’t offer a heck of a lot beyond facepunching. Oh and guess what? He barely even facepunches anymore, and when he does, he's bad at it.

Stephane Robidas has been cleared for contact.— David Alter (@dalter) September 27, 2014
Robidas was held out of the early part of camp and has yet to play a preseason game. While the defenceman brushed this aside as being a precautionary measure, it was somewhat surprising, and created concern over where he was in his recovery from breaking the same leg twice last season.

Isn’t Joffrey Lupul sweet? He’s a good looking man, he’s got Lupe’s troops and he can score goals. Hell, my girlfriend loves him. You know what else? He gets injured a lot. When he’s healthy, he’s productive and when he’s not . . . well, he’s not. And far too often lately, it’s been the latter. There’s only so much a man of his social stature can achieve when he spends a considerable amount of time in the press box.

A preseason game against the Buffalo Sabres; what could possibly go wrong? Well, if last year was any indication, a lot of things. Fights, lumberjacks, suspensions, and all sorts of crazy stuff. Tonight, the goal was to keep everything a bit less aggressive and just play some hockey, and these two teams definitely did that.. for the most part. In the end, we got a bunch of scraps and the Leafs got an overwhelming 6-4 victory.

When we heard that the Toronto Maple Leafs were looking for Finnish forwards who spent last season in the Kontinental Hockey League, everyone assumed that Leo Komarov was the target. Technically, they weren't wrong, as he signed a four year deal in July. But as it turns out, he wasn't the only guy that the Leafs had set their sights on, signing Petri Kontiola to a one year, one way, make it or break it deal. But who is this mystery man? What can you expect from him?
