The Toronto Maple Leafs have fired Head Coach Mike Babcock.
Patrick Marleau, the 40-year-old centre who played 2 seasons in Toronto and adopted two 20-year-olds in that time, made his return to Scotiabank Arena -the Maple Leafs Home base- since being traded, bought out, and signed to San Jose this off season.
So the Toronto Maple Leafs have named John Tavares as their captain. I'm not mad, I'm just disappointed because A. it should have been Morgan Rielly and B. it ruined my nap.
Jason Spezza, a 35 year old centre, is up for Unrestricted Free Agency this summer.
The past 2 seasons have been rough on Jason Spezza.
Dallas is still thought of as the team that missed playoffs 5 years in a row. The team that crashed season after season and it a "lost sport" in the football capital of America. But let me tell you this: This team, this season is different. John Klingberg is one of the reasons why.
Last season, it seemed as if the Stars had a solid spot in the 2017-2018 playoffs.. that is until they dropped 8 games in a row eliminating them from first round contention. The extended summer felt disheartening, not only for fans I'm sure.
