Maple Leafs

David Clarkson is returning from suspension for the Toronto Maple Leafs on Friday, now they must figure out what he will bring to the table and how he will fit in. [National Post]

Ball hockey didn’t work (guess they won though), so the Leafs decided against a real practice again and instead played some footy. [Toronto Star]

The Leafs farm system isn’t so parsley stocked these days, so there’s actually something to look at when doing a prospect watch! [Editor In Leaf]

Buffalo Bills

C.J. Spiller says his sore ankle is feeling “a whole lot better” which makes me feel a whole lot better about the Bills run game. [ESPN]

Aaron Williams is moving back to his natural position of safety, which can only mean good things for a Bills defense that has valiantly held in there despite numerous injuries. [Buffalo Rumblings]

With all of their games decided this year by a total of 31 points, the Bills have certainly been in every game this season, and a lot of that credit can go to Doug Marrone. [BuffaloBills.com]

Raptors

The Raptors success (or lack thereof) depends on a number of things this season, while I would argue that the team’s primary issue is their terrible bench, a lot will swing on which Kyle Lowry shows up to play with the first unit. [National Post]

It was a preseason blow out as the Toronto Raptors handily defeated the visiting Memphis Grizzlies 108-72 on Wednesday evening. [Toronto Star]

Rudy Gay trade rumours are already abound, so what could the Raps get in exchange for the talented forward? (Hint: probably nothing as valuable as that expiring contract). [Raptors Republic]

Blue Jays

Blue Jays coach DeMarlo Hale is one of 5 known candidates that have interviewed for the vacant Washington Nationals manager’s job. [Toronto Star]

I love my guys over at Jays Journal, but this gets a giant NOPE from me. Please for the love of god Blue Jays DO NOT SIGN Omar Infante. [Jays Journal]

Since he was drafted all Marcus Stroman has heard is that he can’t be a big league starter, and all he has done in return is excelled at every level. Stroman is embracing his role as an underdog, and I’m excited to see him with the big club. [BlueJays.com]
