On the eve of another NHL season, the Globe Hockey Roundtable assembles for a special episode previewing the 2011-12 Toronto Maple Leafs.
Globe and Mail Maple Leafs beat reporter James Mirtle is joined by bloggers Michael Langlois of Vintage Leaf Memories and Julian Sanchez of Pension Plan Puppets to discuss the season ahead for the blue and white.
Among the topics up for discussion: Will goaltender James Reimer be able to handle the pressure of huge expectations? How will rookies Matt Frattin and Jake Gardiner perform in games that count? Will the special teams be improved this season? Is the club destined to miss the playoffs again?
