TJ Brodie was everything he was asked to be

In the not-so-distant past, the Toronto Maple Leafs had garnered the reputation of being something of a, to put it bluntly, complete dumpster fire defensively. Be it the ever looming narratives surround the likes of Jake Gardiner, or just the complete lack of defensive prowess that came with the likes of Cody Ceci, Tyson Barrie,…

Rasmus Sandin took Leafs Nation by storm after being selected in the 2018 NHL draft, starring on the international stage for Sweden while showing he could be an impact player in the American Hockey League, and even seeing significant NHL action as a teenager. The last year and a half, however, has been difficult for…

Jake Muzzin is the hero we don’t deserve

Leafs fans argue about a lot. Should the Leafs trade Mitch Marner? Should the Leafs trade William Nylander? Is Jake Gardiner bad? Is Tomas Kaberle bad? Very rarely do you find a player that just about everyone in this fanbase universally likes, especially in this era of analytics. Jake Muzzin is the kind of player…

Report that Leafs Assistant Coaches are in demand

On the Saturday Headlines segment, Elliotte Friedman shared that teams have asked permission to speak to a couple of the Leafs assistants regarding roles with other clubs. This is interesting because at this point are we particularly attached to any of the Leafs assistants? And while no specifics were really given about who is asking…
