Monday Mailbag: “When the heck does the season start?” edition

August. Twenty-first. Two thousand AND Seven…teen.

The point of the year where you do things like care about a big star in the sky, potential Leafs d-pairings and also Connor Brown’s contract or lack thereof.

Caring about hockey at this point in the year is weird because you either care so much or just want to enjoy your summer. Sometimes it’s both, but really, October can’t come soon enough.

But anyway, let’s jump into the very hockey-heavy* questions** this week.

This wasn’t a question, but it was a nice compliment.

As you can tell from this mailbag, we could really use some hockey things to start happening.
