During a time where there wasn't a lot to cheer for in Leaf Land, this moment shone through.

Tim Brent is a couple years removed from his Leafs days, but he is not forgotten in this city. Tomas Kmec, a young hockey reporter from Slovakia, recently went to some KHL games in the Czech Republic, the home of the lone Czech KHL team Lev Prague. Tomas offered to interview some KHL players for us, and Brent's team, Torpedo Nizhny Novgorod, recently came to town. We've already posted his interview with Leo Komarov here at TLN, as well as an interview with Ryan O'Byrne. Brent's new KHL team, Torpedo Nizhny Novgorod, also came to town recently. All Tom asked for was that we give him credit. Please give Tomas a follow. He's the reason we have these interviews.

Here's Tomas' talk with Tim Brent on his decision to go to the KHL, injury struggles, his time in Toronto, and hope to play in the NHL again one day.

Ryan O'Byrne on his time in Toronto, decision to go to the KHL, and more

Ryan O'Byrne wasn't on the Leafs for very long. He was meant to be a late season addition to beef up the Leafs' blueline. Even though his role was minimal, in a way, he got a more complete Toronto Maple Leafs experience than most players have been through in the past decade. He played in the blue and white during the playoffs, after all.

A few months later and minus an NHL job, O'Byrne is now playing for Lev Prague of the KHL. Even though he's thousands of kilometers away, we managed to get an interview with the now former Leaf.

Tomas Kmec, a young hockey reporter from Slovakia, was recently at a few Lev Prague KHL games in the Czech Republic. Tomas approached me last week, offering to interview some KHL players for us. We've already posted his interview with Leo Komarov here at TLN. All he asked for was that we give him credit. Please give Tomas a follow. He's the reason we have these interviews.

Here's Tomas' interview with "Ryan O'Beauty" on his time with the Leafs, Toronto during the playoffs, heading to the KHL, Randy Carlyle, and more.
