With the NHL’s offseason officially upon us and the Leafs’ already well under way, I have decided to bring back tweet of the week articles for Editor In Leaf. This week’s tweet features well-known Toronto Maple Leafs fan and blogger Steve Dangle (Steve_Dangle on Twitter) who tweeted out the fact the Leafs have not had a player that can get under the skin of their arch-rival, the Montreal Canadiens.
Can the Leafs trade for Marchand? Ever since Grabovski was bought out there's been a "punch the Habs in the head" void that needs filling.

What makes this tweet so great is that the Habs suck, it made me miss Mikhail Grabovski and well, honestly no one likes the Habs so full credit for this terrific tweet. The Leafs could get Leo Komarov back to fill that role the Leafs have missed for some time now, if only they find a financial fit for the Finnish player but with Dave Nonis and crew running the ship it is unlikely they will pursue Komarov, which is unfortunate because he really wanted to come back and play for the Blue and White. So for now, sadly, the Leafs will have to move on from missing Grabbo and Komarov and have to deal with rocks like Colton Orr and David Clarkson as the “Hab head-punchers” for now unless they sign Komarov which would be really cool.
