Against all odds, the Toronto Maple Leafs have filled me with unexpected optimism and soul-crushing despair after just one game. This is gonna be a long season!

    Favorite Leaf last night: Daniel Winnik

    Loved having this guy back in a blue and white uniform. Seems like he’s the responsible, trustworthy, “Dad” of the young forward group and I really like his game overall, last night included.

    Least favorite Leaf last night: Leo Komarov

    It isn’t often that I rag on Uncle Leo, but the hit on Subban was behind the play and could have cost the Leafs much more than a couple minutes of 4-on-4 (thank you Devante Smith-Pelly!)

    Best audition: Matt Hunwick – had a solid game all around, looked energetic and responsible with and without the puck.

    Worst audition: P.A. Parenteau – just didn’t notice him at all; wouldn’t be surprised if he or Spaling are switched for Michael Grabner against either Detroit or the Sens this weekend.

    Maybe the pontificaters in here are trying to tell you something Steverino, namely that there were 42 comments on another article on the leafs first game and you got one. Just saying.
