Suffice it is to say, contrary to earlier in the week, the mood on Friday’s edition of Leafs Morning Take was much more vibrant and enthusiastic.
Nick Robertson is a big reason why. In his season debut against Dallas on Thursday night, the 21-year-old potted two goals, one of which was the OT winner, as the Leafs edged the Stars 3-2. With that in mind, we discussed Robertson’s ceiling for the season and what a fair expectation for the former second rounder could be.
Meantime, it was quite evident that Dallas was taking liberties on Toronto’s stars, they were running around all night. The age-old toughness vs. skill debate is always a fun one to have, especially in this market. At the very least, my Twitter timeline agrees. Is it time to bring Wayne Simmonds back into the lineup? As a former enforcer in the NHL, you can bet Rosie had a couple comments on that.

After that, we previewed Leafs and Jets from Winnipeg on Saturday night. After four in a row at home, Toronto now embarks on a five-game road trip to finish up the month of October. The Leafs are 3-2-0, the Jets are 2-2-0.
Furthermore, Thursday night was a tough one for my PointsBet Canada bet of the day, I took my first L as Auston Matthews failed to cash on an anytime goal. All I can do is move past it and look ahead to tonight’s NHL slate:
