Renaud Lavoie appeared on Jeff Blair’s show on SN590 today and the question as to whether William Nylander enjoys country music was posed. This, of course, means that they were speculating the possibility of a trade that would send Nylander to the Music City for one of the Predators’ many defencemen.
Elliotte Friedman put out his 31 Thoughts today and it was loaded with Leafs content. Let’s dive in.
Hello, Leafs Nation. I’m here reporting from Edmonton with some hot inside information: Peter Chiarelli is ripe for the picking. It’s that time of year! The sun is out, the birds are chirping, and Chiarelli is sitting in his desk itching to make his annual horrendous summer trade.
