Leafs vs Panthers tonight has massive playoff implications

The Leafs needed a bounceback, statement, character, whatever kind of win you want to call it in the worst way on Tuesday against the Lightning. They got it. But while that was a game to feel great about for a couple days, the reward for it is the setup for tonight’s monster game against the…

Leafs talks with the Canucks over Tyson Barrie have “intensified”

There are less than 24 hours to go until the trade deadline, and you know what that means: There is chatter. Lots of it, folks. We’re going to try to keep bringing together as many trade talk items (known in some circles as “rumours”) from legitimate outlets until everything is settled, so let’s get right…

Leafs feeling the heat, but could they do some selling at the deadline?

It’s crunch time for the trade deadline right now, with the usual prelude of minor deals trickling in these past couple days leading up to Monday when the bigger names get moved around. With that comes a lot of insider previewing, and most notably today the 31 Thoughts podcast gave their full league rundown of…

Show me decent goaltending and I’ll show you a good Leafs team

The trade deadline is next week and can anyone honestly come up with a proper assessment of what the Leafs might need to really improve their team? I can’t. It’s almost impossible to zone in on a target to fill the “weaknesses” in Toronto’s lineup because, frankly, this godawful goaltending recently has sent everything off-kilter….

At least it’s entirely up to the Leafs now

With a little less than two months left in the regular season, the Leafs now have a clear path to the postseason in front of them. When things got off to a disastrous start leading up to the Babcock firing in November, there was a lot of uncertainty around whether or not the team would…

Will the Leafs be leaving New York with Alexandar Georgiev?

The Leafs are in New York to face the Rangers this evening, and depending on how desperate they’re feeling these days, they could be flying out of the city with a new goaltender in tow. Links between Toronto and the Rangers’ Alexandar Georgiev have been talked about all season to this point, and will only…

Muzzin contract picking up steam, Leafs sort of linked to Josh Manson

There’s been a somewhat surprising amount of Muzzin contract talk over the last week or so since he bounced back from his stint on injured reserve. And I say somewhat surprising because we haven’t heard any of the same rumblings with Tyson Barrie, a right-shot who is younger and also set to go to free…

Leafs send Tyler Gaudet back to the AHL

Let’s not make this into more than it is. Gaudet was recalled by the Leafs to be on the roster when the team went on the road to Nashville, where he played last season. This is what we’ll come to recognize as the “Reverse Babcock” where the team actually treats players decently. With the team…
