What to pay Nazem Kadri?

via Wikimedia commons Here’s a good question: What’s Nazem Kadri worth? Not in the sense of dollars and cents, but how long should the Toronto Maple Leafs choose to commit to their young centreman? In the latest Leaf Report podcast, James Mirtle and Jonas Siegel begin talking about Kadri at around the 20-minute mark, and…

YakovMironov’s Leaflets: May 30th – Dallas Done?

At the moment there are three coaching vacancies sitting open in the NHL (thanks Tortorella for opening up another spot.) There’s been no shortage of interest in Dallas Eakins for head coaching jobs in the past, and it sounds like he’s been actively interviewing this summer. There is a very real possibility that the Marlies…

The Leafs found value in net with Reimer and Scrivens

via Wikimedia Commons Steve shared this bit from Kevin McGran on Twitter this morning. It was a mostly factual, albeit obvious, bit about how the Pittsburgh Penguins are so good because of their depth. Depth, moreso than top talent, is what drives team’s success through the regular season and into the playoffs when too often…

Listen to The Leafs Nation’s segment on TSN Radio

It’s a little dull around here during the offseason, but we’re exploring our boundaries with media other than writing. Steve of course has the excellent Maple Leafs montage from the 2013 season set to Adele’s “Skyfall” which can be found here, and Cam was found on TSN 1050 Tuesday night with Jim Tatti and former…

Skyfall: The 2013 Toronto Maple Leafs

I made a montage of the Leafs’ 2013 season. During the week that the end of the lockout was announced, and shortly after Brian Burke was fired, I heard Adele’s song Skyfall that she made for the new James Bond movie with the same name. I’m always video editing and always tinkering with highlights, and…

Canucks reportedly show interest in Marlies coach Dallas Eakins

The season is over, so the pickings are very slim for posts. We’ll have some stuff later this week on the contract that the Leafs should give to Nazem Kadri. Meanwhile, Jeffler is digging around some team data in all the Maple Leafs games this year. Maybe we’ll talk about the Eastern Conference Finals. Probably…

YakovMironov’s Leaflets: Can’t Fight This Feeling Anymore

In case you missed it over the past season, it’s become clear that Randy Carlyle seems to think fighting gives the Leafs some kind of competitive advantage. While I admit to some enjoyment from the occasional sideshow, it seemed ridiculous to link the success of the team to bad hockey players dropping their gloves to…

Open Thread: Angling for young forwards

Alex Burmistrov, via Wikimedia commons Thomas Drance has a post up on Canucks Army this morning about the availability of players like Alex Burmistrov, Nino Niederreiter and Ryan Johansen. The Maple Leafs aren’t in the same position, forward-wise, as Vancouver (meaning, Toronto has the ability to score goals on occasion) but it probably wouldn’t be…

Leo Komarov makes joke in Russian press

Leo Komarov via Wikimedia commons An interview with Leafs fourth liner Leo Komarov popped up in Sport RU this morning. Pension Plan Puppets has a translation, where on first glance it appears that the Maple Leafs may lose their pesky Uncle Leo to the KHL and Dynamo Moscow: – Maybe it’s time to come back…

Nozak: The Chemistry Chronicles

(Tyler Bozak’s realistic value to the Toronto Maple Leafs is a dead horse that I intend to beat until you assume it was cremated) We’re inching closer and closer to the start of another off-season, filled with unrestricted free agency, trades, and all of that fun stuff. Of course, there’s a lot of debate as to what…

Victoria Day Open Thread: Is London’s Max Domi a draft target?

Image via Mark Staffieri at Ice Hockey Wiki There’s going to be a lack of Toronto Maple Leafs-related news until the conclusion of the Stanley Cup playoffs. This week I’m focusing much of my time tracking zone entries for the Memorial Cup (work will be published over at Yahoo’s Buzzing the Net) and only doing…
