After so much positive energy and hype heading into last season, it doesn't feel the same this year after another first round exit.
We've already got the news that Ilya Mikheyev wants to be traded and we learned that Auston Matthews had last minute surgery which he could have had much earlier.
Now we might be dealing with another injury.
While some Leafs' players were having a scrimmage yesterday, defenseman Morgan Rielly seems to have suffered an injury.
It's hard to tell exactly what happened but he seemed to be dealing with something as he got off the ice and went back to the locker room.
David Alter of The Hockey News was able to capture the afternmath.
