Leafs management endorses Marner and the status quo

It’s hard to imagine getting much out of a press conference ever. Still for good or bad, they exist, and on a day when Leafs fans wanted to believe that sweeping changes were on their way or at least an identification of what went wrong, we were instead treated to muted endorsements of staying the…


Looking forward after Leafs locker clean out day

There was a lot said from the players, management and fans over the last few days. Some good, some not so good. But after today, you sort of have a sense of where the Toronto Maple Leafs will be going when they move forward. It really seems like they won’t do much this off-season, but…

5 reasons why the Leafs are out of the first round… again

Well that sucked. At the end of the day, I’m not entirely surprised, because this is the Toronto Maple Leafs and their entire brand is finding unique ways to crush your soul.

The Toronto Marlies 35-game season came to a close on May 20th. It was an eventful last few weeks as the team played their final 13 games in the last 20 days of their season, due to AHL COVID-19 protocols. No playoffs, no Calder Cup — nothing. I’d suppose the correct word for this season…


The Leafs need to make a big change or it will never work

Eight straight losses in series-clinching games. Eighteen straight playoff games without a goal from Mitch Marner. A combined one goal between him and Auston Matthews. A blown 3-1 series lead. What does that all add up to? The most embarrassing loss in franchise history. Yup, it’s even worse than losing to a 42-year-old Zamboni driver…

The Leafs lose in game 7, again

The Leafs have been eliminated by the Montreal Canadiens, that’s it. Do I have any words? Not really. Every year, it feels like we have the same conversation and nothing changes. Absolutely nothing. Thanks for following along with this season, and I hope you enjoy the final video of the year on the Leafs.
