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.
*They’re not really hockey-heavy
** Not all of them are questions
What are we going to do with all these wingers?

Having more wingers is good. Options are good. Losing players to other teams is not good, but having so many good players as options is good.
Not the first time this question’s been asked, but here is what Jonny wrote about this last week.
What's the best team you can make of ex-Leafs who remain in the NHL?

Oh. Maybe you shouldn’t trust this guy. Avoid the Presement and the President for Eclipse takes.

This wasn’t a question, but it was a nice compliment.
You can email us at TLNmailbag@gmail.com as well in case you don’t use twitter.
As you can tell from this mailbag, we could really use some hockey things to start happening.
