  1. Despite the loss our Buds showed some real promise last night. Any team that rolls into the ACC will have to come prepared to fight what appears to be a rough and tumble edition of the blue and white. Blueliner Francois Beauchemin looks like he will contribute significant minutes with his steady play. The tailgate party was live and the Watchmen put on a fantastic show. It appears as though Brian Burke has assembled the best Leaf team that will take the ice in years.
