Maple Leafs

Finally! The Leafs have signed RFA Cody Franson to a 1-year deal! [NHL.com]

Where there was once nothing, now there is hope for a few soon to be Marlies. Who will benefit most from David Clarkson‘s 10 game banishment for being stupid? [National Post]

Phil Kessel realizes that his second swing at John Scott‘s ankles were probably a bit much, but also adds he didn’t really have any other choice in defending himself. [Toronto Star]

Buffalo Bills

What was once a strength has turned into a black hole on the Bills offense, the running game simply has not been up to par and the Bills are looking to do something about it. [ESPN]

Despite the injuries piling up, the Bills are confident in the depth on their defensive line. [Buffalo News]

Nine Bills missed practice with injuries yesterday including Stevie Johnson and Mario Williams. [Rochester Democrat & Chronicle]

Blue Jays

Munenori Kawasaki might be one of the unlikeliest DH’s in the history of Major League Baseball, but that didn’t stop him from collecting 4 hits last night in a losing effort. [National Post]

Alex Anthopolous has come out and said that the Blue Jays need to “upgrade the production” at catcher if they want to contend next season. While some will read into this as a good-bye to J.P Arencibia, his wording left it open that Arencibia could return and they would expect more out of him…hmmm. [Toronto Star]

The Blue Jays may be losing at baseball (a lot) but they’re not doing to bad at that thing called life as a number of Blue Jays became fathers this season. [Toronto Star]

Raptors

If a lot of things go right this season for the Toronto Raptors, they could very well see themselves sneaking into playoff contention. One of those things that has to go right? Landry Fields needs to rediscover his rookie form. Can he do it? [Raptors HQ]

It’s too late to get any, but Bell bought every single ticket to one Raptors preseason game and gave them all away to fans. [Mobile Syrup]

With the preseason just around the corner it’s time to start looking at who is coming and what to expect from Raptors training camp. [Bleacher Report]
