Truthfully, the title could have just as easily read "Marlies trade William Nylander to MODO for Viktor Loov."
From the always cool and informative Chris Johnston of Sportsnet...
After much discussion, MODO allowed prospect Viktor Loov to join #leafs AHL team rather than forcing him back to Sweden. Classy move.— Chris Johnston (@reporterchris) October 8, 2014

After pouring through nearly a hundred applications and putting five talented finalists through the wringer, it is my great privilege to announce that the Next TLN Blogger contest has come to a close.

Do you know what I've noticed? Whenever anybody says something over the top about Phil Kessel, it's always negative. If it's about his personal life, his physique, his play style, whatever, the baseball bat is always swung at a dead, critical horse. You never see somebody overstep their boundaries to controversially praise the best player on the Toronto Maple Leafs.
I'll break from that norm today. Phil Kessel could be argued to already be the best Leafs winger of all time.
