There isn’t a huge sense of urgency at the moment, but the Maple Leafs and restricted free agent defenseman Luke Schenn are back at the bargaining table.

Kings fans are waiting around to see when restricted free agent Drew Doughty will finally sign a long term deal in L.A., let’s just hope you’re not holding your breath in anticipation or else you might pass out.

The Leafs are making nice progress this season, but two questions remain: 1) will James Reimer fail to maintain his progress from last season? and 2) will Toronto swing for the fences with a big offer sheet? If you ask Brian Burke, the ideal answer to both questions is “No.”
