With 3 big wins in the past 8 days for the Blue and White, including beating the hated Habs and coming from behind to beat the surprisingly flailing Washington Capitals, the Leafs are actually building some positive momentum. These wins correspond with the return of the heavy browed Captain my Captain Dion Phaneuf.

Playing big minutes and a calming force on the back end, it’s clear he has a huge impact on this young team and at only 25 himself is proving his value.

Ahhhh, one of the great books of my childhood. Without solid centremen, a team is nothing. I’m not entirely sure I accept that as a truism, but it’s hammered into my head enough by half-baked hockey fans that it’s starting to stick. Twenty-nine games into their season, the Maple Leafs’ are embarking on a three-game swing through Western Canada. The Oilers spanked the Leafs 5-0 at ACC on December 2nd. And the Canucks demoralized Toronto exactly one month ago, when Mason Raymond scored on a stupidly long slapshot that J-S Giguère still wishes he could have back. Time to rate the Leafs’ centres 29 games into the season.

2009 - 2010 17 67 37 48 85
2010 - 2011 18 33 24 26 50

Leafs vs Habs - Return of the Waffles

Looking back on the past 7 days of hockey, the journey of the Leafs has been eerily similar to that of the Rebel Alliance in Star Wars. At first, they faced down what seemed to be insurmountable odds; the Rebels the Galatic Empire with their Death Star, the Leafs with the 5 best teams in the Eastern Conference in succession.
