An experimental drug has helped Paul Henderson rally against lymphoma chronic leukemia.

Back to the future: van Riemsdyk shifted to centre.

Is this man the answer to the Leafs long-standing search for a number once centre?

It was just an idea. A notion even.

Is this man the answer to the Leafs long-standing search for a number one centre?

Back in the summer of 2012, Randy Carlyle was wrapping up an 18-game stint as the Leafs coach when he wondered out loud about the possibility of moving James van Riemsdyk from left wing to centre.

“I made that comment over the summer months and it was big news,” Carlyle was saying.

“This was my first test on maybe I should shut my mouth.”

What Carlyle didn’t recognize was that since ...

Nazem Kadri Answers The Bell And The Hockey Questionnaire.


For a guy who makes a handsome living built on fractions of sentences, Nazem Kadri isn’t a particularly patient guy.

Ask him about the one thing he would change about himself and the 23-year-old London native sites the need to be willing to wait.

“I would be more patient,” Kadri said in his Five Questions feature. “I can get impatient and agitated sometimes. Sometimes I have to breathe and relax.”

He is breathing pretty easily right now.

In the three games he has played with Phil Kessel and James van Riemsdyk Kadri has scored ...
