LGD: Preseason Fun with our Francophone Friends

Tonight the Leafs play in Quebec City, a place that is best known for not having a NHL team. They will be playing against the Canadiens, which is additionally funny since no fans hated the Canadiens more than Nordique fans. Anyway, it’s preseason hockey and it’s a great time to give lip service to communities that were rejected for expansion.

The Leafs have an entertaining lineup tonight, and make this a game worth paying attention to. Aside from Connor Brown and Connor Carrick, all of the players are fighting for NHL a couple of NHL jobs and even Carrick and Brown are trying to make their case for expanded roles this season.

Loose Change

We can look forward to a good time being had by all tonight with a very Marlies lineup going up against a much more NHL-y Habs roster. The game should lead to some decisions on Leafs bubble players, and with the clock ticking, it seems like cuts and waivers could be a reality very soon.
