It’s over.”  But that is simply my opinion.  The author feels that the Leafs, Wild and Panthers could all be possibilities.  I would add if you think 33 would play in Toronto then you haven’t been paying attention (and that isn’t to be misconstrued as a shot at the city).  Patrik Laine takes on pro golfer friend in exhibition match for Facebook LiveMissed this one from Tim on the Jets winger having some fun back home in Finland during the pause.
