ing out of the race due to exhau

    导出博客文章The Toronto Maple Leafs organizations centennial anniversary no doubt will be a
    glorious celebration of the game of hockey. The bright, young talent that has
    taken over the team will be on display and will give a glimpse of whats to come.
    The odds are against the Leafs earning a postseason berth, however, but the
    arrival of Auston Matthews, last Junes No. 1 overall selection in the NHL draft,
    already has Toronto fans revved up.While the Maple Leafs and the NHL will honor
    the past, it will be a great season to look toward the future in Toronto. Theres
    a lot to be excited about. It might take a few more years, but the dawn of a new
    era has arrived. The Toronto Arenas won the first Stanley Cup during the 1917-18
    season. Maybe history will repeat itself 100 years later. But before we get
    ahead of ourselves, lets focus on the upcoming season.Best new facesMatthews,
    19, is the fresh face of the future. The kid from Scottsdale, Arizona, proved
    his worth for Team USA at the World Championship last May and again for Team
    North America at the World Cup of Hockey. Hes big, strong and extremely
    talented. Hes smooth, and comfortable in his 6-foot-2, 210-pound frame. And his
    No. 34 Maple Leafs jersey is flying off shelves in Toronto. Theres so much to
    like about this kid, and Toronto should be a perfect fit.Theres more to like
    about Torontos ongoing rebuilding process than just A-Matts (Im sure hes being
    called Matty, but I like A-Matts better -- just saying). Anyway, the Maple Leafs
    added veteran forward Matt Martin during the offseason. The 6-foot-3,
    220-pounder will add strength and grit to the Toronto lineup. The Maple Leafs
    also added defenseman Roman Polak along with goalie Frederik Andersen and Jhonas
    Enroth.Biggest unknownsThe biggest unknown is how Matthews game will translate
    at the NHL level. Playing pro in the Swiss Elite League last season, when he
    registered 24 goals and 22 assists for 46 points in 36 games for Zurich SC, was
    a good starting point. Plus, his contributions at the World Championship and the
    World Cup make it appear likely that his transition to the NHL should be
    relatively seamless. But lets not put this kid in the Hall of Fame just yet. He
    will have his growing pains, as all rookies do. He will be under a microscope in
    Toronto and expected to contribute right away. Fortunately, he seems built to
    handle the pressure.?Goaltending has been an issue for the Maple Leafs, so thats
    why the organization added Andersen and Enroth. The No. 1 spot could go to
    Andersen, but hell quickly learn that Toronto is a long way from the Anaheim
    Ducks. The 27-year-old will see a lot more action now than he ever did, and it
    might take him a while to get used to seeing so much rubber. Enroth, 28, has
    served mostly as a backup in his NHL career, and that will be the same in
    Toronto.Which?Morgan Rielly?will show up? This is a big season for the
    developing 22-year-old defenseman. It will be his fourth full season in the NHL,
    and he needs to contribute more offensively, especially on the power play.Sure
    thingsEven though William Nylander, 20, has only 22 games of NHL experience from
    a season ago, upper management knew he was ready even before he made his debut.
    He had six goals and seven assists for 13 points during those 22 games, but he
    showed high-end skill and a strong enough hockey sense to make everyone believe
    hes the real deal. While all eyes will be on Matthews, keep a close look on
    Nylander as the favorite to win the Calder Trophy (the rule states a player can
    have no more than 25 NHL games under his belt to still be considered a
    rookie).Im not sure you can consider Nazem Kadri as a sure thing -- but hes
    making improvements. The 25-year-old top-line center had 17 goals and 28 assists
    for 45 points last season, and hell need to boost those numbers in 2016-17. He
    needs to become a leader on and off the ice for the younger players on the
    team.PredictionThe Maple Leafs will make strides again this season but ... . The
    organizations continued progression will be fun to watch, though. Eighth in the

    ten years. They come in every color: white, red and rose. If you have to pick
    just one, go for the Savennieres. Made of Chenin Blanc grapes grown on schist
    soil, this white wine has gold reflections, complex aromas with scents of pear
    and offers mineral qualities once in the mouth.ddddddddddddHistory: Some bad
    memories might have crossed the mind of three-time Tour de France winner Greg

    American rider ended his Tour career there during the sixth stage of the 1994
    Tour, dropping out of the race due to exhaustion.Stat of the Day: 28. The
    numbers of stage wins by Mark Cavendish, who matched five-time Tour champion
