How will the CFL East be won in 2013?

Sure, it’s still two months before free agency opens up, but given what happened last December, it’s a question worth investigating.

It’s been just over a year since the Toronto Argonauts swung a deal with the Edmonton Eskimos for Ricky Ray, the franchise quarterback that would lead the Boatmen to the promised land in his first year wearing double-blue.

During the same off-season, the Hamilton Tiger-Cats obtained Henry Burris in a trade with the Calgary Stampeders and all he did was put up several franchise records and bring the Tabbies offence to life.

When it came to elite quarterbacks residing in the East, Anthony Calvillo finally had some company.

As many had expected, Calvillo opted against retirement last week and is returning for a 20th CFL season and 16th with the Montreal Alouettes.

That news had most Alouettes supporters jumping for joy, but leaves a significant question left to be answered.
