Maple Leafs recall Greg McKegg

Maple Leafs recall Greg McKegg

The Maple Leafs have reportedly recalled 2010 third round pick Greg McKegg from the Toronto Marlies. This appears to be an insurance policy for tomorrow’s game vs. the Senators in case Peter Holland can’t go, as he was nursing a minor injury from yesterday’s win over Florida.

James van Riemsdyk and Carter Ashton are also banged up at the moment.

Greg McKegg has been centering the Marlies’ top line for most of the season and has quietly compiled an impressive 26 points in 35 games, recently stringing together a seven-game point streak in the month of January. He could make his NHL debut if Holland can’t play, but the call up at the very least rewards McKegg with his first NHL payday.

If they can't score in this period, it will be 3 goals in 6 games for LA.

Re-watched some 24/7 today. The segment with Kadri has a song in the background (it's Jai Paul-BTSTU) with a chorus that goes, "I know I've been gone a long time. But I'm back and I want what is mine". There can't be a better description of the way this kid's picked up his game. Let's go Nazzy...drop another 3 on the Sens tonight.

Just saw the highlight of the Proust Bishop fracas. Not sure if Proust is best described or a punk or pussy, but that was about as awful a display as I've seen in some time. Someone on the lightning should have disregarded a suspension and pounded him.

@wiski  The song they're gonna play is called "Loneliest Lion"...seems appropriate with the mask

@wiski  I thought the whole Kings run was pretty boring.  They're not a very entertaining team.

@wiski @Cameron19  It's not like it's a rare stretch of scoreless play for them, either.  They were terrible at scoring, even the year they won the Cup.

@Gilbey93 @mike_84 @Cameron19  Richards and Carter are insanely over-rated, I find almost especially by Leaf fans ( I guess cuz they saw a bit of Doug Gilmour in Richards). And Brown has been just terrible.
