Here it is.
We have been waiting wayyyyy too freakin’ long for the opportunity to see our team again.
But what has really changed to the team that wears Blue and White? Not much really.
Except that we added John Tavares. NBD as the kids say.
No longer do we have perennial whipping boys Tyler Bozak, JVR. Gone are Roman Polak, Leo Komarov, Matt Martin.
Most of the team is already set. I do not do the numbers, so I will round it to 95% of the team knows exactly their role.
Who steps up?
Who steps down?
Wednesday afternoon the Toronto Maple Leafs announced their roster for Camp. Do you see William Nylander in the mix?
The @MapleLeafs have announced our 2018 training camp roster.
Training Camp Fuelled by @GatoradeCanada will begin tomorrow and continue over the weekend with on-ice activities starting Friday in Niagara Falls.

It is merely a ‘meet up’ and media availability today at the MCC before the team heads down the oft congested QEW to Niagara Falls but it is a start.
A start to what could turn into a magical season, and I am ready.
