News: Bozak scored a power-play goal in a 3-2 win over Florida on Tuesday night.
Impact: He has 40 points on the season, but that's a far cry from his early-season pace. And his minus-21 rating is an anchor on most fantasy squads. He will likely end up somewhere else over the summer and that means his fantasy value will actually stabilize -- he'll be used in an appropriate role and not deployed on the first line. But right now, you should probably park him on your bench. He's just too much of a risk.
News: Kessel picked up an assist in Tuesday's 3-2 victory over the Panthers.
Impact: Phil's been less than a thrill lately -- he has just four points in his last 10 games and 10 in 26. Yes, you read that right. That 10 in 26 games is a 32-point pace. He's better than this, but this slump should mean he's picking splinters out of his butt on the fantasy sidelines.
News: Bernier made 40 saves while letting in just two goals Tuesday in a 3-2 victory over the Panthers.
Impact: This is the third time in his last nine starts that Bernier's made 40 or more saves, as the Leafs' defense has been painfully porous. But he came up big in this one, and has (despite some ugly goals here and there) generally been a reliable presence in the Toronto net -- the problem is that the team in front of him is just not very good.
News: Smith (lower body) is expected to return to the lineup Tuesday against the Panthers, Paul Hendrick of Leafs TV reports.
Impact: Smith hasn't appeared in a game since Feb. 14 due to an injury. As the Leafs' fourth-line center, point-gathering opportunities are scarce for Smith, and he doesn't do much to supplement his value outside of the non-scoring categories, either.
