If you ask most followers of the team, they'd tell you Leafs defenceman Jake Gardiner hasn’t had the best start to the 2014-15 season. Fresh off of signing a contract extension that will see him earn $4.05 million cap hit for the next five seasons, the pressure is definitely on Gardiner to prove his worth.
Yet despite being perceived as “young”, it’s easy to forget that Gardiner’s already in his fourth year in the league. At age 24, there’s still likely room to grow, but Gardiner’s ceiling and his prime is getting closer and closer to being reached.

It's Sunday, it's colder than something that is, like, INCREDIBLY cold outside, and you can't watch football ALL day, so why not hunker down in your favorite footy pyjamas and take a gander at this week's First Star, Worst Star!

The Toronto Maple Leafs did a very cool thing and honoured Pat Quinn before tonight's game. They also did another cool thing and ran the Washington Capitals out of the Air Canada Centre, defeating them by a score of 6-2.

The 11-8-3 Leafs host the 10-8-4 Captials on a Saturday night matchup which, at least on paper, appears to be fairly evenly matched.
But as any follower of hockey knows, what's written on paper doesn't always equal a close game.

The final buzzer sounds at Ricoh Coliseum. Fans, for the most part, are just happy to have their team back in town. After all, they've spent the past several weeks on a road trip while their home arena was put to a different use, hosting the annual Royal Winter Fair. The reaction from the players, however, is not as positive. Heads are hung low during the walk from the bench to the room. Men living out their dreams look visibly frustrated.
Perhaps the loud f-bomb that escaped the room, coming from an unidentified player, best describes the Toronto Marlies' seven game losing streak.
