Preview: Game #23 Devils @ Leafs – Meet the Devils

Bit of a short preview today. Lots of talk around the trade that sent Mike Brown to Edmonton for a conditional pick. My own belief is that this is a good move in a vacuum, in that the Leafs get a lottery ticket—as well as an extra roster spot—in return for a player who didn’t…

Brown Trade A No-Brainer

You’re a fan of a hockey team, one that happens to wear blue and white. Things are looking up. Or, at least not down. Games are being won somewhat often, players that were missing during these wins are starting to return, and the key to this year seems to be consistency rather than streakiness. You…

Marlies Win 2-1 In A Shootout

  Today was a chance at redemption for the Toronto Marlies. Really, their last chance against the Binghamton senators, facing them for the fourth and final time of the season. Yesterday’s game was a continuation of the usual patterns – a lack of scoring, an inconsistent powerplay, and without Drew MacIntyre starting, instability in net….

Making Highlights at Hockey Night

Working for CBC Sports and Hockey Night in Canada has been a dream of mine ever since I was a kid. In October of the 2011-12 NHL season, this dream became a reality. My ticket into “the ceebs” was making highlight packs. I did that all throughout last season, and once the players and owners…

Marlies Lose 4-2 to Binghamton

You know how I just wrote an article about Drew MacIntyre being signed by the Marlies to give them a better chance at winning games? With my luck, he was nowhere to be found tonight, as Dallas Eakins decided to give the start to Jussi Rynnas with Mark Owuya backing up.  Don’t I look smart….

Yesterday morning, the Toronto Marlies announced the termination of goaltender Drew MacIntyre’s professional tryout, and the signing of a full AHL contract for the remainder of the season, a move that has some happy, and others confused. The move comes immediately after the return of Jussi Rynnas to the team, leading to some confusion. After…

Marlies: Joe Colborne Revisited

I’m not going to get into the individual breakdown of skills here for Colborne, I gave my thoughts as to what kind of player he was and how getting to the net. I pointed out in that post about the range in which Colborne was expected to develop. As it stands now, if the Leafs…

Kadri-son to Believe – Leafs defeat Isles 5-4 in OT

A lot of weird things happened in this game between the Maple Leafs and Islanders. The Leafs got a win, which isn’t that weird this year, and continued their impressive start to the shortened season. It was a 5-4 overtime win on a goal by Dion Phaneuf 1:11 into the OT period that somehow snuck…
