The 2014-15 NHL schedule was released yesterday, and the news wasn’t great for the Maple Leafs (click to view the Leafs schedule).
Ok, i think I got this right now. Still unofficial, but I think it’s right. Rested/Tired B2B in 2014-15. pic.twitter.com/a2tMyuBn8T

(In layman’s terms, the Leafs get to play a tired team while rested only 5 times, but played a rested team while tired 14 times).
|Rank out of 30|
|Total back to backs||t-3rd|
|Games as rested team||t-27th|
|Games as tired team||t-3rd|
According to more of Gus’s data, out of a sample of 17220 games, a tired team’s winning percentage is .495 while a rested team’s is .596.
At least they’re in the East. Using a 4th line might be important in those tired back to backs.
So LeBron is a free agent, no doubt Wickie is on the hunt now. Good, keep away from the hackey team.
TSN has a defenseman, Fleury, rated at no. 8, where Leafs pick. Are there no You Tube videos of this player so people here can rate him as a future star. ? It would not surprise me if this player turns out to be a best D-man in this draft. Sometime players with no hype are the ones that really are, special.
I saw the awards convo down below, Dave Keon is the most decorated Leaf, Calder (1961), Lady Byng (62, 63), Conn Smythe (67), 8 time all-star, 4 Stanley Cups. Not bad at all... one of my top 3 favourite Leafs.
Ya baby..we're kicking Ireland's ass!
@DeclanK When is someone going to put out some draft rankings? I'd like to know who the Leafs have a shot at.
@ingy56 Who's LeBron?
And the hackey wives :)
@mr_hanie Another Percy really, Not outstanding Defensively, not outstanding offensively, just smart and fast
@ingy56 Wasn't Keon only the second line center on the Leaf Cup teams ? He would be roasted here as not a true no.1 center.
@Ricky_Vaives_slapshot @ingy56 I think the ship may have sailed on that but I agree 100%, he's obviously holding onto a principle too so I totally respect that. He's always appreciative of the fans adulation though. Glad to see him show up at the ACC for team events. I still say the most dominant performance I've seen from a Leaf was the semi-finals in 64, game 7 in the Forum and Keon scored all three goals in a 3-1 victory. Wendel's game in LA in 93 comes close though.
