It feels disingenuous to call this a “Season in Review” for Andreas Johnsson, who joined the Leafs late in the season and played nine regular season games, then six more in the postseason. Instead let’s call it a “Tryout in Review,” because that’s really what this season was for him. Johnsson was stellar for the…

2017-18 Leafs Year in Review: Matt Martin

Matt Martin quickly went from “irreplaceable in the mind of his head coach” to afterthought this season, and the Leafs likely became the better because of it. Overtaken by players such as Kasperi Kapanen and Andreas Johnsson, the Leafs’ closest prototype to an enforcer was one of the league’s healthiest players this season, as he…

2017-18 Leafs Season in Review: Tomas Plekanec

It still feels weird to be writing a piece about noted Toronto Maple Leaf Tomas Plekanec, but here we are. Plekanec’s stint in the blue and white was a brief one, having come over in a deadline deal which saw a second round pick and a couple of log-jammed prospects head the other way. Given…
