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.

THE INMATES ARE RUNNING THE ASYLUM!
With Adam Wylde out of town, Steve and Chris run the show. Steve got a surprisingly easy-to-obtain interview with Cody Franson, there's a little brawl talk, and Steve (me) answers your questions.

Leo Komarov was a unique addition to the Leafs last season, and this site lucky enough to get a unique opportunity with him.
Tomas Kmec, a young hockey reporter from Slovakia, was recently at a few western conference KHL games, including Lev Prague hosting Leo Komarov's team Dynamo Moscow in the Czech Republic. Tomas approached me last week, offering to interview some KHL players for us at TLN, including Komarov, former Leaf Tim Brent, and former Leaf Ryan O'Byrne. All he asked for was that we give him credit. Please give Tomas a follow. We wouldn't have these interviews without him.
Here's Tomas' interview with Komarov on the Leafs, Mikhail Grabovski, Randy Carlyle, Dallas Eakins, and more.

The day after the big Leafs-Sabres brawl, there's a lot of fallout, and a lot of opinions.
Should Kessel have slashed
that big dumb guy Brad Pitt killed at the beginning of Troy John Scott? Is Davis Clarkson getting a 10-game suspension? Is Bernier awesome for beating up Ryan Miller? Are you still reading this? Watch the video!
