Tonight the Monsters of Regression face-off once again. The 2013-14 regressors, the Toronto Maple Leafs and the 2014-15 regressors, the Colorado Avalanche. The two teams are eerily similar to the extent that both jettisoned talented centers (Grabovski and Stastny) after their playoff season, and both for some reason thought aging, injured defenseman would be the answer for them this season (Robidas and Stuart).
Of course the biggest similarity was hot goaltending in front of poor defense, and neither of these teams have done much to remedy that defense issue. That should make tonights game fun to watch and if the two teams combine for less than 70 shots, I'll be shocked.

It's a new season, but it's not hard to look back to the immediate past. For the returning members of the Toronto Marlies, you have to imagine last year's conference finals were in the back of their minds as they took on the Texas Stars last night. Unfortunately for them, the only person who earned redemption tonight wasn't on either team last year.

Those [lovely people] at TSN threw up a video today called "Maple Leafs creating a distraction in net", and it's, uh, something. Careful not to call the Jonathan Bernier and James Reimer platoon a 'goaltending controversy', the video certainly hinted that things could maybe, potentially, perhaps boil over.
Let's overreact, shall we?

The Leafs suck. November sucks. Everything sucks.
