Report from the Rock: Drama boils over and the city wins, for now

It’s a dark day for sports fans in the city of St. John’s. Perhaps the darkest it has seen since the day it was announced that the St. John’s Maple Leafs were leaving town… or the day it was announced that the St. John’s Fog Devils were ceasing operations… or the day that the St….


It’s Leafs vs Blackhawks and really what else is there to say?

The Leafs play the Blackhawks tonight and frankly, it’s a little bit difficult to decide what the focus is here. Sure, yes, the Leafs are in a tailspin and things seem pretty dire and if they lose tonight there might be some big changes coming. But on the flip side – the Blackhawks organization as…

Jake Muzzin’s rough start exemplifies Leafs’ early struggles

It’s only been six games… of the same old habits.

I think there’s merit to both sides of the arguments being presented by a fractured and discordant Leafs fan base right now. On one hand, yes, this team is due for a reversal of fortune. On the other hand, these 2021-22 Leafs have not given us much indication that they have learned from past mistakes….


The Leafs reunion with Freddie Andersen seems ill timed

When we last saw Frederik Andersen he was regularly imploding in the Leafs net, and it seemed like his career was coming to an unfortunate end. The Hurricanes didn’t see it that way, and walked away from a promising goaltender they were developing in favour of giving more money to Freddie. It seems like it…


Marlies and Me: Joseph Woll shines in season debut

The Toronto Marlies were ready to put their 5-0 loss to Manitoba last week behind them with a back-to-back this weekend. The first game was against the Rochester Americans, and the second was against the Cleveland Monsters. Toronto’s opening game of the weekend was one to be forgotten by the Marlies. Rochester handed them a…
