According to the Saskatoon Blades, the Leafs have hired their Statistical Analyst, Bruce Peter.
Peter has already been added to the Mapleleafs.com Management list, so we can assume this is official.
Peter will be joining a team that includes Cam Charron (former editor of this site and noted girlfriend haver), Darryl Metcalf, and Rob Pettapiece reporting up to Kyle Dubas.

I'm going to the Blue Jays game tonight. I like it when teams score more points than the other team, especially when the team that does it is the one that I'm cheering for. The Blue Jays have done that a lot lately. I like seeing the City of Toronto happy and successful. I don't know where I'm going with this, but Toronto rules and hopefully more parts of it will rule soon.

TheLeafsNation.com is counting down the best Leafs of all-time and Felix Potvin made their list. Knowing he is my blue and white bae, they asked me to make a video about him. Here it is!

When the Leafs traded their 24th overall pick in the 2015 draft to move down, I was a little upset. Others questioned the move too - with Travis Konecny still on the board, why not take him and run away laughing? But I was sad for a different reason - TLN favourite Jeremy Bracco was still available, and he most certainly wouldn’t be by the time the Leafs picked again. Or so I thought.

Rick Vaive was drafted fifth overall by the Vancouver Canucks in 1979. After just one season, he was dealt to Toronto as part of a package that saw Tiger Williams and Jerry Butler head west. Williams would put up one 30-goal season in Vancouver, Butler never hit 20. Vaive hit 50 goals three times in Toronto and hit at least 30 another four times in his 7 seasons in the Blue and White. It's perhaps the 2nd best Toronto-Vancouver trade ever, after Cam Charron for a writer to be named later (which turned out to be Jeff Veillette).
