Leafs by the Numbers: TJ Brodie

TJ Brodie was arguably the Leafs biggest addition this offseason, at least as far as on-ice value goes, as his signing helps the Leafs round out their deepest blueline in years, maybe even decades. Brodie was the one player that I really wanted the Leafs to go after, considering that he was the best mix…


Leafs by the Numbers: Zach Hyman

Zach Hyman proved everyone wrong. That’s my story and I’m sticking to it. He was a 5th round (123rd overall) pick in the 2010 draft who wasn’t really thought of, at the time, as anything special. Acquired by the Leafs from the Panthers in 2015, Hyman has become one of the team’s most invaluable players….

Leafs by the Numbers: Zach Bogosian

Around this time last year, you probably wondered why Zach Bogosian managed to remain part of an NHL roster in spite of a lack of playing time and a decline in play. Regardless of what was the root cause of the regression, it appeared all but certain that he would see his hockey dreams end…


Leafs by the Numbers: Frederik Andersen

From the day he first arrived in Toronto back in 2016 up until today, Frederik Andersen has remained one of the Leafs’ biggest x-factors each and every season. The team would only be able to go as far as he could take them and that has usually meant the decisive game of the first round….

Leafs By the Numbers: Denis Malgin

He might just be the best player you forgot the Leafs had. Denis Malgin appeared in just 8 games for the Leafs last season, but there was a time when the 2015 4th rounder was making a name for himself in Florida. More accurately, he was distinguishing himself from Evgeni Malkin. The 2015 draft was…

When you think about the Leafs’ 2019-20 campaign, what is the first thing that comes to mind? Is it Mike Babcock making the baffling decision to scratch Jason Spezza on opening night? Or how about that loss to the Penguins, followed by that save from Fleury, followed by Babcock being fired and Sheldon Keefe taking over?…
