Tower Talk: September 13, 2013


Maple Leafs

The “who is going to play with Phil Kessel” debate is one that has raged throughout every Leafs training camp in recent memory. After Tyler Bozak piggybacked his way to a new contract extension off of Kessel I assumed that’s where he would be staying…is Randy Carlyle smarter than I think? [Toronto Star]

The Maple Leafs are hoping for improved play from their blue line this season, with Carl Gunnarsson healthy, Jake Gardiner with the team all season, and Paul Ranger joining the ranks its tough to see how they won’t be better. [Globe & Mail]

Buffalo Bills

The Bills have officially sold out Sunday’s game, as well as their 3rd home game of the season, meaning that Bills fans not heading to Ralph Wilson need not fear a blackout ruining their Sunday. [BuffaloBills.com]

The Bills secondary is beat up, where will they turn next for reinforcements? [Buffalowdown]

Blue Jays

Over at Getting Blanked Drew Fairservice reminds us all why he’s king of the blog game with yet another excellent piece, this time on J.P. Arencibia. [Getting Blanked]

The Angels swept away the Blue Jays in a battle of monumental disappointments. I was quite frankly sick of the Blue Jays ruining their chance at a protected pick so good riddance. [Toronto Star]

Amazingly, despite the absolutely awful on field product this season, the Toronto Blue Jays have been able to maintain high television ratings. [Toronto Star]

Raptors

Pop quiz time! It’s early in the school year, and NBA training camps are just around the corner, so it’s the perfect time to have a pop quiz about the Raptors offseason. [Raptors Republic]
