If you're anything like me, you've probably found yourself wasting a good bit of time dragged into the the internet searching through past NHL drafts and such.

I considered chocolate rabbit Easter, but I couldn't think of a way to tie it in. I almost got desperate and went with a 4/20 pun, but this mailbag is about blue Leafs, not green ones. Besides, the Leafs got low to close out, not high. Maybe you're just going call today Sunday. Whatever. Just go have fun in your way. But first, here's a mailbag.
