Leafs Lose To 5-2 To Detroit

  The Leafs played game nine of their ten game preseason tonight. As such, we saw a close to full roster – one that was missing Phil Kessel to suspension, and Fraser McLaren to injury, but was essentially what we’ll see on opening night. The final game will feature a duller roster, to say the…


Game Thread – Leafs at Red Wings

Two preseason games left. It’s looking like the only thing left to settle is which depth winger is going to be on the roster to go in place of Frazer McLaren should he be injured opening night. 11/12ths of the forward core appears to be set, with Colton Orr returning to the lineup for his…


What we learned with the Kadri and Franson negotiations

We know you’re wrong because you have a Big Bang Theory t-shirt. Ryan Lambert over at Puck Daddy wrote a column that went up this morning about how the Toronto Maple Leafs mishandled their salary cap situation this summer. It’s tough to disagree with the overarching point, that Toronto once had lots of cap space…


Leafs salary cap situation, as best we can tell, after Franson signs

The good news is that Cody Franson is under contract. The bad news is that the Leafs are still a little over a million above the salary cap, according to Capgeek. While Leafs’ assistant general manager Dave Poulin complained yesterday that Capgeek doesn’t factor in the bonus cushion for Jake Gardiner, all the calculator apps…


Cody Franson Signs 1-Year Deal

  The Toronto Maple Leafs may have started the offseason’s cap management in a way that makes one want to pull their hair out, but appear to have come through in the eleventh hour, signing Cody Franson to a 1 Year, 2 Million dollar contract. Odds are, if you agree with this site even occasionally,…



As the preseason comes to a close and the NHL regular season is squarely on the horizon StreakCred is ready to go with an early bird – $15 for the entire year.


Tyler Biggs Scores Awesome Goal In Marlies Practice

Another day, another practice at Toronto Marlies training camp. The roster is now at 17 skaters, and drills have become more team-based instead of individual as they near a pair of preseason games against Hamilton (what an original opponent!). Particularly interesting, personally, was the spin around faceoff drills, but I’ll talk about that and include…


Phil Kessel Suspended 3 Games

  As we all know, Phil "Trill" Kessel took his beloved "hackey" a little too literally on Sunday, going full Lumberjack/Jedi on John Scott’s completely oblivious ankles. We noticed it, the Sabres noticed it, and NHL Player Safety certainly did, suspending Kessel for the rest of the preseason. 


Leo Komarov on the Leafs, KHL, and more

  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…
