Unfortunately for the Toronto Maple Leafs, one half of this memorable James van Riemsdyk goal battery will be staying home for tonight's preseason contest. The Leafs kick off their preseason tonight at 6:00 p.m. from Budweiser Gardens in London against the Philadelphia Flyers. Unlike the Washington-Winnipeg game on CBC from Belleville last night, there aren't a whole lot of stars on either side. Claude Giroux, Jakub Voracek and Phil Kessel will be staying home, as is van Riemsdyk. For shame.
In net for the Leafs will be James Reimer and Christopher Gibson, as Reimer begins his quest to retain the Leafs' starting goaltender position, behind a defence that has just two likely NHLers in John-Michael Liles and Paul Ranger. The Maple Leafs posted a full lineup on its website including line combinations:

There were some interesting items of note from today's Leafs camp scrimmages. For example, 19-year-old Morgan Rielly skated on a defensive pairing with Dion Phaneuf. More interesting to me though was just how nasty things got.
Here's what went down.

After a month of non-stop hot prospect action, The Leafs Nation's Top Twenty Prospects feature has come to an end.
As most of you likely expected all along, Morgan Rielly was named the Leafs' top prospect by our panel of writers. He heads up a group of seven defencemen who made the list, along with twelve forwards and a single goaltender. Since we released our countdown as twenty seperate articles, the least we could do is release one final article with the full list.

Neat picture, but who's the knob interviewing Darryl Sittler with a Galaxy S3?
I had the opportunity to have a brief chat with Leafs legend and Hockey Hall of Fame inductee Darryl Sittler on Friday morning about this year's Leafs, Morgan Rielly, and Tim Leiweke's stance on Leafs history.
How you ask?
