Never would have thought it still this early into the season (and with the general laziness and apathy that the papers give their sports sections), but there's a lot of food for thought in the papers today:
Gustavsson starts tonight. Apparently for just a period, his time will increase over the next three games. He'll have to face the awesome power of former Leafs Kris Newbury and Brad May though. Hope he's up to the challenge.
Rickard Wallin earned a roster spot already? Funny, I can't remember seeing him play.
Brian Burke broke Steve Moore's neck. Or something.
Some players still have some respect for history and tradition. Nice to see Cujo getting the respect he deserves from a new guy. I like Joey, but I really hope we don't have to rely on him as a starter for any stretch this season.
Kadri's not staying with the club, which is really for the best. Looking forward to next year's camp already.
On that last note, has anybody noticed that Cox has been surprisingly tame of late? I mean, there was only one real shot at Leaf fans in that article. Some of his articles about the Leafs have even been downright... optimistic. Creepy. Maybe that new picture of him looking old has mellowed him out.
Final cuts are coming this weekend, and it's been a great preseason for the club so far. Oct 1st can't come soon enough.
