After the first official home game of the preseason last night, the Leafs are heading to Buffalo for their fourth preseason game. We’re almost halfway done with the exhibitions — almost.
At points it might seem like the preseason is way too long — and that’s a valid point — but it’s always nice to see some of the rookies and prospects play with some talented players. Rather than watching them on grainy streams on a line with your future electrician, we get to watch them in full high-definition with some NHL stars next to them.
With not that much room to take spots on the Leafs, this is an opportunity to show management, the coaching staff, and some fans, what exactly a young player looks like in a simulated NHL game.
Tonight in Buffalo, the Leafs will be significantly stocked with players destined for the Marlies when the calendar turns to October. While Buffalo will try to put out their most “talented” lineup for their first home game of the preseason.
