Hockey Cards Aren’t Locked Out!

NHL lockout be damned! Let’s do this! Just like the video says: Leave a comment and you’ll be chosen at random to recieve one of either a hockey card with pieces of game-used jersey from four different former Leafs (Matt Stajan, Vesa Toskala, Luke Schenn, and Jason Blake), or a card atuographed by current Leafs…

Francois Allaire is Probably Right

Why didn’t Francois Allaire do interviews all the time? Very often in sports reporting, people give vague answers to questions. The quotes are nice to have because of the name attached to them, and they’re great for filling up pages, but that doesn’t mean they always add actual value or substance to the story. For…

NHL 13: A First Look with Sean “Rammer” Ramjagsingh

The great thing about covering hockey for a living is sometimes you get to play videogames for a living, too! I sit down and play NHL 13 with the producer of game, Sean "Rammer" Ramjagsingh – who is 6’11", by the way. Have the Leafs found their new number one centre?!?! Anyway, Rammer explains a…

NHL 13 with Doug Gilmour

  Member of TLN, video blogger, and overall handsome young gentleman (who’s clearly writing this) Steve Dangle sits down with Leafs legend Doug Gilmour at an event for the upcoming release of EA Sports’ NHL 13. Dougie talks about gaming, the CHLPA, the upcoming (we hope) Winter Classic, his epic cow leggings, and more.

The Scr-interview, Part I – Ben Scrivens on the 2012 season

It’s the offseason, and I was able to get a hold of Ben Scrivens for a lengthy interview, cut into three parts. The first part deals with Scrivens’ 2012 season, both with the Maple Leafs, and with the Marlies for their Calder Cup run in the spring. What were your expectations heading into last season?…

Marlies Sign Paul Ranger

A source I trust has confirmed the rumours that former Tampa Bay Lightning defenceman Paul Ranger has signed with the Toronto Marlies. Over the last few days, several reports have come out that Ranger had signed an AHL deal in Toronto. If true, Ranger will be set to play his first professional hockey since his…

JVR: From a Flyers Perspective

When the Leafs traded Luke Schenn to the Flyers for James van Riemsdyk, a Flyers fan asked me for my thoughts. I gave them. Doing Leafs videos for the last few seasons, I’ve obviously seen quite a bit of Luke Schenn. I even interviewed the guy a few times. Since getting drafted in 2008, we…

A Midsummer Night’s Theory

Alright, work with me here… This isn’t a trade rumour. This isn’t me having a “sources say” or a #CONFIRMED moment. This is just a theory I have about the Leafs’ plans heading into 2012-13. Leafs fans have been uneasily waiting this summer while the team has done very little to a roster that fell…
