Auston Matthews is using the All-Star game to recruit potential teammates

Auston Matthews is only 20 years old, but he made the second All-Star game appearance of his career this weekend. When he was a rookie, he was quiet and reserved at the event. But this year, Matthews’ personality was one of the event’s bright spots. According to Craig Custance, Matthews was trying to lure some…

Prepping for the Seattle expansion draft

Gary Bettman indicates that the NHL’s 32nd team — Seattle — will get the same expansion draft rules as Vegas did. — Chris Johnston (@reporterchris)…

Kasperi Kapanen deserves a full-time role with the Leafs

When Kasperi Kapanen gets put in the lineup he immediately becomes the fastest player on the Leafs and, most nights, the fastest skater on the ice at all times. The dude can skate. Kapanen was just sent back to the Marlies, but I’m hoping it’s just to keep him on the ice while the Leafs…

A Critical Analysis of the Best Hockey Tweet of All Time

Please, come chirp to my face and I’ll show you hockey. Not on Twitter. Just you at me, in person. You’ll have to sign a release and then we’ll be good. Need to be legal. MMA is legal. Hiding behind the computer stinks, pal. I’m all about hockey and its code. https://t.co/PMwCOUzkeB — Mike Chambers…

Rinat Valiev loaned back to Marlies

Well, that was fast. Today, the Leafs announced probably their most “meh” story of the year. Without getting into a game, Rinat Valiev has been sent back to the Marlies. Called up earlier in the week, Valiev was likely an insurance callup with no real shot of getting into the lineup barring an injury. The…

Which Leafs Are Most Likely to Test Salary Arbitration This Summer?

The summer of 2018 is a crucial one for the Leafs as they attempt to navigate the cap and maximize the potential impact of their young core for years to come. Much fanfare, and deservedly so, surrounds the team’s forthcoming decisions on impending UFAs James van Riemsdyk, Tyler Bozak, and Leo Komarov. But there will…

Morning after-recap: There’s No Fault in Our Stars

Wow, a Leafs game where I actually enjoyed every second of it, and didn’t hate myself for wasting my time watching the team play poorly. Who would’ve thought that we’d see that team again? While it wasn’t the entertaining, back and forth hockey that they played early on, it was a solid, all-around win, and…

Post-game: Auston, Naz, and Willy Make Dallas Look Silly

After a solid OT win last night in Chicago, the Leafs were basically doomed to lose tonight, considering the situation going into the game. But, the Buds made us not worry (for once), and played a… surprisingly complete and all-around hockey game? Wow, what a treat!

Morning after-recap: Serving up justice

Here’s a good recap from last night: WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO *takes breath* WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO The Leafs haven’t been winning a whole lot recently and even less in regulation. They didn’t win in regulation, even though they probably should have and deserved to after uh, a questionable call. It was a dumb game, and frustrations have been high in recent…
