TSN.CA: Toronto Maple Leafs forward Nazim Kadri will be out of the lineup for 3-4 weeks after suffering a sprained knee in practice yesterday.

WINNIPEG SUN: Can Mark Scheifele make the Jets this season?




  1. What does The Kadri Injury do the Leafs bottom 6? Does this give Frattin or Colburne a shot? Or does the Revolving door of 7 4th liners keep rolling??

  2. Scheifele should be on the Jets him and Kane looked deadly last night

  3. Scheifele has obviously earned his 9 game shot

  4. If your working on your powerplay in order to create good chemistry with your top unit,I can buy. If it’s just to make it click for making it click, it’s a waste of time. A practice situation will always be different from a game situation. A powerplay is bonus in any game for sure. But, your better off, setting up your 5 on 5 play than the powerplay. Because if you bank too much on the powerplay, you could be in big trouble come the playoffs in a similar situation.
