You don’t need to worry about the salary cap if your players are always injured
Unfortunately the injured player is Andreas Johnsson, and the fact that the Leafs put him on the long-term injury reserve means we aren’t going to be seeing him again until after Christmas.
Johnsson has been a staple of the Matthews-Nylander line, a line that has needed a bit of a shake up lately, and I guess this is how they’ll get it. I’m not going to speculate on how that role will be filled because honestly Sheldon Keefe has shown a willingness to go off completely against what we’ve seen under Mike Babcock, so I’d be curious if the Marner-Matthews-Nylander experiment continues, or if it’s time for something completely different.
Martin Marincin and Nic Petan getting recalled is standard practice at this point. I’m not sure how much I agree with …
