Press Box School’idge: Lessons Learned vol. 1

Is it just me, or has the hockey season passed us by far quicker than usual?

Carl Gunnarsson, the player I was most keen on going into the season, left the Marlies early on for the big club and never looked back.

The two most important of these will need to come this weekend as Toronto faces Manitoba, the current occupant of the 4th and final spot.
