LGD: It’s a trap

View image | gettyimages.com If you’ve been a follower of the Leafs for a while, you understand three simple rules: A Toronto-born player from a visiting team will always score a goal in front of family and friends at the ACC. A former Leaf will do the same, no matter where the game is played. Mid-week games…

Estimating the Leafs PDO

View image | gettyimages.com It’s the same story, different year it seems. Night after night, the Leafs get out-shot, out-played, out-possessed, but almost never outscored. The Leafs are currently on a 10-1-1 streak right now playing some very good teams in the process and beating them handily to boot. But they haven’t played all that…

LGD: Squashing the Flying V

It’s the marquee Tuesday match-up that everyone’s been waiting patiently for as the Leafs take on their longtime rivals: the Anaheim “no longer mighty” Ducks. The stakes are high tonight as the winner gets to keep their magic beans capable of powering their sky-high PDO’s, while the loser’s will get nothing except the mumps. The last time these two played…

Monday Mailbag: Postman Justin

Jeffler is a very busy boy. He is in the holiday spirit and is at the local mall buying lots of gifts for his family and friends and Twitter followers. If you do not receive one, I’d ask him “What’s up? Do you not like me?” As he’s very busy, I have taken over the Monday Mailbag…

Leafs at the World Juniors: Dion Phaneuf, 2004 & 2005

View image | gettyimages.com Dion Phaneuf’s World Junior tournament offered many Canadians their first chance at watching the future Toronto Maple Leafs captain.
