Dave Feschuk: The Maple Leafs are better with Nick Foligno — whose quotable shot at Toronto’s defence no longer applies

If it goes well, Foligno will be the Zach Hyman-esque grinder they have been seeking to complement, say, John Tavares and William Nylander. Or maybe he’s a third-line checking staple. The details will be worked out after Foligno serves his seven-day quarantine and dons the same No. 71 his dad wore for the Leafs, Dave Feschuk writes.

The Maple Leafs have another practice day today, getting ready for tomorrow’s bout with the Senators who, while last place in the division, have recently proven they can still take on and win against the best teams if they make mistakes.

Is Alex Galchenyuk good enough to be the upgrade John Tavares needs?

Photo by Derek Leung/ Has the top-six hole already been filled, or is it still the best place to improve?

While Kyle Dubas now has to wonder about his goaltending situation, he still says he’s looking at forwards. Word is getting out that the Leafs may consider Alex Galchenyuk their top-six forward acquisition after all, which could be negotiating tactics. Since arriving on the Leafs and moving to the second line with John Tavares and William Nylander, Galchenyuk has...
