Since late last season, I've been of the belief that the Toronto Maple Leafs are actually good. More specifically, I've been of the belief that with the systems that Mike Babcock executes, the influx of young talent they've added in the past few years, and the continued growth of those players, the Leafs are now more likely to win X amount of hockey games than most teams in the league. It's a belief that they are not Stanley Cup contenders just yet, but they are at least in the threshold for good.
Alas, the Leafs lost to the Vancouver Canucks in a shootout last night, thus throwing a movement that was well-accepted several days ago out the window. Or did it?

There was a fight and also a fun hockey game.

This weekend is a huge one for the Toronto Furies and the CWHL in general. It's GTA Rivalry Weekend, which always proves to be an amazing match up. Tonight's game at the Brampton Memorial Arena is in honour of DIFD, a youth mental health initiative. Tomorrow's game, in Barrie, is part of Roger's Hometown Hockey.

There was much anticipation to tonight's matchup with the Canucks and Leafs, given the physicality and fisticuffs that happened the last time these teams met.
