For the first time in a couple of years, Ricoh Coliseum's press box was completely full. It can get crowded, but rarely do you see a complete lack of empty seats. It's no secret as to why, though; William Nylander was making his home debut for the Toronto Marlies. He didn't turn heads last night (nobody up front did; it was a 3-0 loss, aver tall), but this was a chance to show off in front of his new audience. Unfortunately, it still wasn't the result that he or his teammates wanted, as the Marlies lost 4-3 in overtime.

Peter Horachek is 8 games into his 42-game tryout. Things aren't going so well record-wise, but there is reason for optimism. It's still far too early into the Horachek era to look at things with a sense of definition, but we are far enough into his tenure as interim head coach to start pointing the microscope in his direction. Well the all-star break is here and the Leafs are off until next week. With nothing else to pass the time, let's take our first look at how he is utilizing his players.

At 1:33 PM on Friday, January 23, 2015 the dream of Steven Stamkos playing for the Leafs officially died and Pierre LeBrun killed it.
Steven Stamkos says similar to Kane and Toews, he envisions potentially signing an extension in July one year out before he becomes UFA.— Pierre LeBrun (@Real_ESPNLeBrun) January 23, 2015

In the past few days, what seems like a two-year buildup of a potential Ryan O'Reilly trade has really started to reach a new level. You know things are getting serious when Bob McKenzie writes up 2000-plus words on the subject.
