The Key to the Leafs' Season

On Monday, September 19th, the Toronto Maple Leafs will take to the ice for the first time in five months. The pre season opener will see the Leafs hosting the Ottawa Senators at the Air Canada Centre. Regardless of the result that night, Leaf fans will finally have that hockey itch scratched.

In the process of trading away the two young veterans, the organization opened up a spot for a more prospective future to emerge. Headlined by Claude Giroux and James van Riemsdyk, the new group brings with it a refreshing sense of excitement about the possibilities of the future.  Packaged with that excitement is an undeniable anxiety about the amount of points going out the door with Carter and Richards. Now that Ville Leino has also left the team, it has become ...
