LEAFS NOTEBOOK: Ellis 'Banged Up,'' Clemmensen Recalled

TWITTER: @GeorgeRichards

 

With only two games left, there's not much left to talk about. The Leafs, eliminated from postseason consideration on Tuesday, didn't even bother to leave Fort Lauderdale Beach to take part in Thursday's morning skate.

 

Good move on their part in my opinion.

Anyway, Scott Clemmensen is back in Sunrise as Dan Ellis apparently got "banged up" in practice yesterday says Peter Horachek. Clemmensen flew back late last night but because of some air snafus, his equipment didn't get here until the skate was already done. Clemmensen will back up Roberto Luongo and his new mask -- plenty of photos on the post below -- tonight against the Leaves.

 

What else happened today? That's about it.

 

-- Ron Young, the long-time off-ice official for the Panthers, is retiring after Saturday's game and moving back to Toronto.

 

The Panthers will honor him tonight as he drops the opening puck against his hometown Leafs.

 

It's a nice honor for a good guy who has been around this team since its inception. He'll be missed around the rink.

George,

I have a question for you. Which franchise is more of a joke? The Marlins or the Panthers? The Dolphins are not far behind, but still a mediocre franchise.

If they don't fire Scott Luce, they are basically saying we don't care about young prospects. They have a ton of duds in the minors who will never make it to the pros. Jacob Markstrom was one they finally gave up on. This guy cannot pick talent and Dale Tallon over pays for has been. Paying Brian Campbell seven million a year, is the same reason the Blackhawks got rid of him.

One point ahead of the Oilers for the 2nd worst record in the league. Hopefully we don't screw this up and get the #2 pick...sigh, another top 3 pick in a draft without an elite superstar.
