WWYDW – Trading For Phil Kessel (With a Twist!)

View image | gettyimages.com Phil Kessel is far and away the Toronto Maple Leafs’ best player. Also, he only has three points in his last ten games and must be traded.  I mean, that’s not really the case.

Adults could learn a lot from the children that come to these 11AM games. For one, they fill up the building, which is a huge step in the right direction.

Mailbag Monday: Same Question Week

The good news: we’ve moved on from a dozen people asking about Connor Brown. The bad news: we now have a dozen people asking who the Leafs will pick at four. Which shows that the Leafs are bad, but not bad enough to get worse, and that our priorities as a fanbase are locked in…

LGD: More Like the Minnesota Tame

There’s only three weeks left in the season. The Leafs need to go 7-2-0 in order to match their worst record in the last 15 years. That record was good enough to have the second overall pick. Times have changed. Now power rankings.
