Looming distraction in Toronto

07:30 AM ET 08.13 | While Nazem Kadri, who is expected to take on a larger role in Toronto, continues to work on his skating and conditioning this offseason, he also remains unsigned. In Kadri's case, expect to hear a lot about a one-year "bridge" deal, similar to what defenceman P.K. Subban signed in Montreal for $2.875 million. That buys some time for the club and gives a young RFA a route from their entry level contract to a big pay day later. ... "The closer and closer camp comes, the more of a distraction it is to me," Kadri admitted. "But I'm confident we'll come up with something. I know both parties want to get something done, it's just a matter of them getting some things together and putting the team back where it was. We have a solid foundation, a great group of guys and no one wants to leave."

Drinking. The curse of those who used to think clearly. :-(

I was beginning to think early onset dementia but drinking is probably correct.

Well if he's professing Leaf Love then yes sir, P - U.

I'd rather see a hickey on a hemorrhoid than watch a Leaf game.
