How a wasted pick in Frederik Gauthier was salvaged

The other day we found out our beloved Goat, Frederik Gauthier, is parting ways and likely heading to the Coyotes on a PTO. I guess, that doesn’t mean it’s set in stone, but with him heading to UFA in the first place, it seems like the Leafs were ready to cut ties with the center….

The Leafs Nation Festivus Airing of Grievances

It’s a very special day for those of us who cling to holidays created by ’90s sitcoms. Happy Festivus! A Festivus for the rest of us. Given that we’re a bunch of weak bloggers, we’ll forego the feats of strength this year and focus entirely on what we know best, and that’s airing our grievances….

Leafs by the Numbers: Travis Dermott

It feels like Travis Dermott has been around for a long time. After all, the Leafs drafted him way back in the second round of the 2015 draft and a lot has changed for this organization since then. The fact is Dermott has still only scratched the surface of what he is capable of in…

Point projections for Leafs players in a 56 game season

Auston Matthews was robbed of his first 50 goal season when the league was forced to shut down last March, and while his chances of hitting 50 in a shortened 2021 campaign might be slim, he should once again be in the running for the Rocket Richard Trophy this season. How many goals is Matthews…

Leafs by the Numbers: Jimmy Vesey

Jimmy Vesey’s number is 17, which represents his career high in goals, a mark he hit twice while playing with the New York Rangers. Now, 17 is not an eye-popping number, but it is a respectable number of goals. 17 goals would have been good enough for fifth on last year’s Maple Leafs team. It…
