You can post our record, or even guess a win, loss, OTL for each game if you want. Assume the roster is the same as when the lockout started (no Luongo, but yes McClement). Get into more detail if you want, like who would be leading in scoring, who made the team out of camp, how are the goalies holding up.

Sat, Oct 13 vs Montreal
Wed, Oct 17 @ Washington
Thu, Oct 18 vs Columbus
Sat, Oct 20 vs Ottawa
Fri, Oct 26 @ NY Islanders
Sat, Oct 27 @ Philadelphia
Tue, Oct 30 vs Anaheim
The NHL schedule makers usually are very kind to the Leafs by giving them a soft easy schedule to allow them to start the year off well.

Leafs finished 5th last (26th) overall last year, and 3 of their first 5 games Montreal (28th), Columbus (30th) and NYI (27th) are actual non-playoff teams that finished below them in the standings. Toss in Anaheim (25th) and you have 4 of their first 7 games all against non playoff teams from last season.

You couldn't really even hand pick a more desirable/easier schedule to begin with, in hopes of getting off to a quick start.
