The Toronto Maple Leafs got off to a competitive start in training camp today. After an offseason full of questions about the future Maple Leafs players, fans, and management finally got to focus on the present. During the first day of camp, two of the team's biggest acquisitions delivered what they promised.

Newest Leafs Forwards Get Into A Heated Battle

The Toronto Maple Leafs had their first training camp skate today. During this time we got our first look at some of the newest Maple Leafs in uniform. The most notable additions were Max Domi, Tyler Bertuzzi, Ryan Reaves, and John Klingberg.
During a small area game drill where battling for the puck is the name of the game two of these additions put on a show. Max Domi and Ryan Reaves gave Maple Leafs fans a teaser for what to expect from the new Maple Leafs.

Maple Leaf fans were ecstatic to see this as they have been begging management to add players like these two for years.

With the style of play now changed there should be no excuses for the Leafs. The expectations are Stanley Cup or bust.
Auston Matthews has his new contract and understands what is expected as do the new additions in Toronto. If the Maple Leafs struggle out of the gate even with the added physicality things could get ugly in Toronto.
