Happy World Junior Day, let’s talk Leafs prospects

Admittedly in my family the World Juniors haven’t caught on as a family tradition yet. My Father will always watch whatever sport I put in front of him, but it’s not required viewing. My mother can have her arm twisted to watch a gold medal game, but round robins are out. My wife doesn’t care for sports, and my kids are just now beginning to enjoy playing sports, but the concept of watching sports on TV is still a little ways off.

Does this mean we’ve made it?
In case you missed it, check out the fight below. We’d say Wayne won that one pretty cleanly, but Benn held his own for a while. It’s been some time since we’ve seen a fight like this in a Leafs game, and so long as everyone is a willing participant (which, clearly, they were here), fights like this one can be really fun. Take a look, and don’t forget to read the post-game recap for a full account of the Leafs 7-3 win.
