Line Up: Toronto Maple Leafs v. Buffalo Sabres

Date: September 27, 2010

Rink: ACC (Toronto)

Puck Drop: 7:00PM ET

Radio: AM 640

TV: Leafs TV (HD)

With only a couple of exceptions (Reimer for Guigere, Caputi for Sjostrom), it looks like tonights line-up is a good bet for the regular season line-up….If Burke carries 22 players, the only battles that remain are for the 7th defenceman and for the 12th and 13th forward spots….The battle for the latter 2 forward spots would be between Caputi, Mitchell and Hanson….My view on Kadri (as if you care) is that a half or full season in the AHL will do him good…as it did for Bozak and others. It will make him hungry, give him experience playing “with men” and enable him to adjust to his new frame (he added some weight and seems a step slower).
