  The Toronto Maple Leafs have called up Greg McKegg from the Toronto Marlies. The 21 year old centre has 26 points in 35 games with the Marlies this season, good for third on the team in points and first among centres.

Leafs trade Fraser to Edmonton for Hartikainen, Abney

  It was only a matter of time before the Toronto Maple Leafs made a roster move to clean up the roster mess that November/December’s wave of injuries created. Today, the tipping point was reached and a deal was made with the Edmonton Oilers, sending defenceman Mark Fraser to the land of Oil and misery.

Leafs postgame – Toronto paint Picasso, defeats Florida

wtf is going on here An early 2-0 deficit to the Florida Panthers turned into a decisive win—the last time Florida was in town, Scott Clemmensen stopped 28 of 29 shots for a 3-1 Panther victory—and that wasn’t exactly the case Thursday night. Despite going down 2-0 early, the Maple Leafs rallied in typical Maple…

LGD – Game 56: Panthers @ Leafs – I miss Scrivens

Little late today. In all our talk about how great Jonathan Bernier has been this year for the Toronto Maple Leafs, can we really overlook what Ben Scrivens has done this season? Scrivens has a .937 save percentage on the year, leading the league among goalies with 1000 minutes of action. A night ago, he…

Charron: What’s happened to Joffrey Lupul’s production?

Between 2012 and 2013, only nine players could boast the following statement: “I played at least 80 games over those two seasons, and registered at least one point per game.”  Those players? Nick Backstrom, Glaude Giroux, Ilya Kovalchuk, Evgeni Malkin, Jason Spezza, Martin St. Louis, and, of course, Phil Kessel and Joffrey Lupul. Looking at…

Leafs postgame – Leafs outshot; win. Lather, rinse, repeat.

Any other team, and we might suggest that the winner of the Tampa Bay and Toronto game taking place on Tuesday night was lucky—that the winning team benefit from four goal posts and a memorable goaltending performance from their starting goalie. But this is the Toronto Maple Leafs were talking about, and they’ve managed to…

Troy Bodie, Please Stay

             Who is Troy Bodie? Sadly, a lot of people don’t know because he hasn’t been a regular in Toronto’s lineup. Over the years, Carlyle has chosen to employ facepunchers as opposed to hockey players who can punch faces, which is the difference between a guy like Bodie and the…

LGD – Game 55: Lightning @ Leafs – Barbaro

When Steven Stamkos went down, I think too many people were willing to write off the Tampa Bay Lightning. Stamkos is many things: he’s a generational talent, probably the best scorer in the game, a deserving Olympian and, as it turns out, pretty inconsequential to the success of the Lightning. Not to say the Bolts…

Mailbag: The Re-Return

Hey! We tried this thing during the offseason, where I answered people’s questions about the Leafs and Marlies once per week. It lasted two consecutive weeks. I tried to revive it a month or so later, which lasted one week. Moral of the story? Jeffler sucks. Don’t do a hockey mailbag when people aren’t playing…
