A perfect night for Toronto:

- Maple Leafs win!
- Raptors win!
- Blue Jays win!
- Toronto FC win!
- Marlies win!
- Wolfpack win!

The only other two professional teams in Toronto did not play. The Argonauts (CFL) season has not started, and the Rock (lacrosse) had a bye week.

Also, for the first time ever, both #1 seeds in the NHL playoffs have been eliminated in the first round (Tampa, Calgary).

What are the chances that Vlad Jr is still with Buffalo in late July? That's the only time that Buffalo plays in Durham.

NoMich: A VERY strong rumour says that he joins the team this Tuesday. There is no chance he's still in Buffalo by mid-May, never mind June or July.

/sad trombone

That's what I figured. I took a look at his stats this year and, well, he should be called up soon. He's going to be fun to watch

Based on stats he should have been in the league for over a year.

It all has to do with money, contract, and control by the team from what I understand.
