Tower Talk: November 1, 2013

Maple Leafs

It was a surprise to all when the Vancouver Canucks decided to keep Roberto Luongo and deal Corey Schneider instead, most of all to Luongo himself  who thought he was soon to be a Maple Leaf. [Toronto Sun]

Tyler Bozak is a very bad first line centre in the NHL, but just how bad is he? Well I’m glad you asked! [Pension Plan Puppets]

In just his first pro season Tyler Biggs has gone from a first-round draft pick of the Toronto Maple Leafs to a third-line winger with the Toronto Marlies, but is that really something that the team should be concerned about? [Toronto Star]

Buffalo Bills

A weird season for the Buffalo Bills can get even weirder if they can pull off an upset of the lone remaining unbeaten team in the NFL on Sunday at Ralph Wilson Stadium, Buffalo Rumblings has a podcast breaking it down. [Buffalo Rumblings]

While Buffalo is a hot underdog pick this week against the Chiefs, they still don’t know who will be taking snaps from under centre in their upset bid on Sunday. [Buffalowdown]

C.J. Spiller is expected to be active Sunday against the Chiefs. The Bills will need every weapon at their disposal against the vaunted KC defense. [FanSided]

Raptors

The Toronto Raptors are going to need to be a team that moves the ball well in order to be successful this season, and they know it. [National Post]

After some opening night jitters, the Raptors look to settle down their game and improve their all around performance the next time out. [Toronto Sun]

Blue Jays

The offseason is barely a day old and people are already fretting about the Blue Jays potential budget, something that we have absolutely no insight into, unless anyone saw last years Marlins trade coming? [The Globe & Mail]

Dear John (Farrell), we know that you won the World Series and everyone in Boston is delirously happy with you as their manager, so we’ll keep the secret of your actual incompetence under wraps for now. [Jays Journal]
