On this edition of the Leaf Report, the guys discuss the transformation of Joe Thornton as an aggressive high energy bottom 6 player. In fact, the Maple Leafs have become more of a multi faceted team, adding grit and sandpaper to the teams skill and speed, shaping the teams identity.

Plus we look at how Nick Foligno has fit in with the team, John Tavares and William Nylander's resurgence, the loss of Zach Bogosian to injury and Rasmus Sandin's emergence into the top 6 of the defence.

Jonas and James also take a look at Freddy Andersen's return to practice, and as always, finish the podcast with your questions answered in the Leaf Report pod-bag.
