In typical fashion, Tim Leiweke is swinging for the fences on behalf of the Toronto Maple Leafs. No, this isn't another article about Steven Stamkos (we did that yesterday). We're talking about the 100th anniversary, and the things that he wants the team to do off the ice in 2017. On the list is, well, everything.

I wasn't able to get to it on the weekend, but I'd like to expand on a few tweets I made after the Leafs hired Peter Horachek as an assistant coach. I really like the hire. Horachek was a coach who got certain results in Florida (huh? you might ask) that I don't think a lot of coaches would.

Oh my god is it ever a far distance between Toronto and Winnipeg. It took us almost three days. Anyway, thank you to everyone who came to the Five Hole For Food event in Toronto, and all of the other readers I've met in other awesome cities. Today not much has tangibly happened in Leafs land (there's a theoretical, but we'll talk about this more tomorrow), so it's time for a mailbag.
