That tweet was written on October 29th, after the Toronto Maple Leafs defeated Edmonton 4-0 in Edmonton. The next night, Toronto was in Calgary on the second half of a back-to-back, and rather than the Calgary Flames give the writer of that particular tweet a large helping of crow, Toronto defeated Calgary 4-2 despite being out-shot 43-22 and out-attempted 76-49.
Since then however, Toronto has gone 26-28-8 with, incredible, just 15 of those 26 wins coming in regulation.
Just perhaps, the Maple Leafs need to fairly beat the Calgary Flames before the curse can be lifted and the team can get back to its winning ways. There isn't a lot of time left, with six games left, the Leafs not only needing to surpass two of Detroit, Columbus and Washington, but also fend off late attacks from New Jersey and Ottawa, who are both within a game in hand of passing the Leafs in the standings.
Hold on to your butts.

The Leafs drive me a little nuts and I yelled and screamed about them on the radio.

TheLeafsNation.com can exclusively report that the National Hockey League will put out a press release later this morning, confirming that the Toronto Maple Leafs have been found in violation of the Collective Bargaining Agreement on multiple levels surrounding David Clarkson's 7 year contract, and will be penalized their 1st Round Draft Pick in the 2014 NHL Entry Draft.

That’s something we talk a lot about when it comes to the Leafs, isn’t it? It makes sense. For one, they’re the most valuable team in hockey. Beyond that, the Leafs have the biggest and most passionate fans in the entire league. That means we want to know all about who’s getting signed or traded, what their cap hit is, and what cartoon character they chose to name their dog after.
But how about your money?

We’re sure you didn’t miss it, but a fan managed to hop onto the ice at the Leafs home game against Tampa Bay on March 19. It was silly, kind of funny, and far more unique to hockey than it is to baseball.
It also raises some questions, like why someone would risk punishment to do this, how they managed to climb the glass before security could step in, and how much alcohol was involved?
Well, we managed to track down the man who ran on the ice and became pseudo-famous for a few minutes. We’ve left his name and any identifying details out, but below you’ll find the key parts of a 20-minute interview conducted last week.
