Tower Talk: October 8, 2013

 

Maple Leafs

Dave Bolland is certainly doing his best to make Dave Nonis look like a smart man with his play thus far in the early season. [Toronto Star]

David Clarkson said he is “jacked” from lifting weights on a daily basis and has reflected on what he will have to do walk the line without going over it while sitting out so far this season…so there’s that I guess. [National Post]

The Maple Leafs may be undefeated, but they have been far from perfect through 3 games this season. One of their biggest problems? An unsustainable (if they want to win) number of turnovers. [CBC]

Buffalo Bills

The Bills are returning to home sweet home this Sunday to face the Bengals, where the team has been completely different from the one to show up on the road. [ESPN]

Colin Brown and Doug Legursky are in an open battle at the left guard position and will be splitting reps in practice this week. [Buffalo Rumblings]

The Bills claimed OL Antoine McClain and released OL Sam Young yesterday in a minor move. [BuffaloBills.com]

Blue Jays

Actual Blue Jays news! Dwayne Murphy has retired and Chad Mottola has parted ways with the organization, meaning a new hitting coach is on his way to Toronto, which should totally solve their starting pitching problems. [TSN]

Edwin Encarnacion has been nominated for his second consecutive Hank Aaron Award. [Jays Journal]

The Blue Jays have decided to avert a public relations disaster by not increasing the price of ticket packages for the 2014 season. [Bluebird Banter]

Raptors

If the Raptors are going to be successful, Jonas Valanciunas is going to need to become a defensive anchor for the team, is he capable of doing just that? [Toronto Star]

The Raptors won their first game of the preseason, defeating the Boston Celtics 97-89. Rudy Gay led the Raptors with 17 points on the night. [Raptors HQ]

Jamaal Magloire is in Raptors training camp, looking to help the Raptors “toughen up” for the upcoming season. [Vancouver Sun]
