Van Riemsdyk's new role

It seems James van Riemsdyk is about to get his first real taste of top-line action with the Toronto Maple Leafs. With Joffrey Lupul (fractured forearm) out and Clarke MacArthur nursing a finger injury, van Riemsdyk is pegged to skate with Phil Kessel and center Tyler Bozak in Tuesday's tilt with the Buffalo Sabres.
