Who’s Driving the Marner-Tavares Line?

When the Leafs signed John Tavares in July, and Mike Babcock said that he’d be playing on a line with Mitch Marner and Zach Hyman, Leafs fans had been drooling over the potential that the Marner-Tavares duo had together before the season started. And nearly halfway through the season, that potential may not have been…


How A Twitter User Predicted Tavares To The Leafs In 2009

Have a seat, folks. This one’s about to get wacky. With John Tavares poised to face off against his former team, the New York Islanders, on Saturday night, this week felt like a good time to take a trip down memory lane – or the depths of Twitter’s archives, at least. Yesterday I, Maple Leafs…

(Editor’s note: The following was originally written for WingsNation.com and published here without the author’s consent. Sorry Nick!) I was at the game tonight. In the 20 minutes that it took to walk home, I groaned out loud about 20 times. My wife, the eternal Leafs fan, mocked me the entire way. Now that I’m…


LGD: Winged Wheels have Landed

The Leafs are hosting the Detroit Red Wings tonight in the second of a back-to-back weekend. The Leafs had a solid 5-3 win last night when the New York Rangers were in town. Detroit had the benefit of an afternoon game yesterday at their home arena against the Panthers, giving them a little bit more…


Which Leafs Should Make the All-Star Game?

(Editor’s note: point totals and league positions do not include last night’s game. Thanks!) The All-Star competition continues to be one of the most boring events the NHL puts on every year, because the only fun stuff that happens is when the players party together after the Skills Competition. The last time we had an All-Star…


Ennis injured with broken ankle in Leafs 5-3 win over Rangers

It wasn’t pretty… but it was a win. In a game the Leafs definitely should’ve won… they did. Phenomenally, in fact. Bigger picture, though, the most pressing news would be this… Tyler Ennis (ankle) will not return for the third period tonight due to injury. — Leafs PR (@LeafsPR) December 23, 2018 which eventually turned…
