Frank Corrado – Our Lost Saviour

I don’t really get to play too much ice hockey. Truth be told, I don’t have a lot of time these days, and also I don’t own full gear and I’m really bad at skating. I basically only play when my buddies rent ice or there’s an outdoor rink. Anyway, we rented ice on Canada…


Should the Leafs bother with going all-in for a top defenceman?

For the most part, the Toronto Maple Leafs have a full-up roster, three months before the start of the season. It’s a good problem to have; they’ll have to make some tough decisions, mostly up front, but it’s pretty safe to say that they have one of the best forward cores in the league, an…


TLN Monday Mailbag: July 10th

The second week of free agency is always more boring than the first one. Almost everybody of profile is off the radar, so the bulk of signings tend to be in the “oh, that’s a neat deal for a single season” territory. The Leafs have made none of those unless you feel like arguing about…


TLN Plays of the Week: July 9th

Another week is behind is in Leafs Nation, with all sorts of fun news and notes. For those of you who may have missed the action, let’s take a look back at some of the most popular posts on TLN over the past seven days!


The next Leafs move will either be substantial, or far away

The salary cap and the collective bargaining agreement are interesting things. There are so many weird twists and nuances to what goes into a team’s active salary, from overages to retentions to long-term injuries, that the hockey community tends to be left confused, but not confused enough to decide not to argue their interpretation to…


TLN Roundtable: How You Like Us Now?

The Toronto Maple Leafs have put the first week of July behind them, making a bevvy of signings throughout the organisation. Still no trades yet, and there’s a lot of players who could be forced onto the block by the numbers game, but some strides were made nonetheless. With that in mind, our roundtable gives…


10 players left expendable by the current Leafs depth chart

Now three roster players richer after an inefficiently efficient UFA week, the Toronto Maple Leafs have some decisions to make in the coming months. There’s a massive surplus of NHL ready depth on the bottom lines and pairs, and the team is approaching the 50-contract limit with 47 players signed and two RFAs sitting and…


Leafs re-sign Justin Holl to 1-year, 2-way contract

One of the least heralded players in the Leafs organization is back for another year. Justin Holl, who has spent the entirety of his time in the system with the Toronto Marlies, has signed a 1-year contract that keeps him away from arbitration. 


Leafs UFA Review: An Inefficiently Efficient Week

It’s safe to say that, as far as putting pen to paper with free agents, the Toronto Maple Leafs have called it an offseason. Sure, there is a ton of room and flexibility for one more big push via a trade (and we’ll talk about that in a separate post), but given the sheer stock…


Maple Leafs and Dominic Toninato to part ways

The Toronto Maple Leafs will be shedding one prospect from their system in about a week and a half. The blue and white will be parting ways from forward Dominic Toninato upon his eligibility for unrestricted free agency on August 15th.


TLN Monday Mailbag: July 3rd

Feels good to be the richest team in the league and have something to show for it, doesn’t it? The Leafs aren’t taking their window of cost efficiency lightly, and it shows, even if they aren’t exactly plucking steals out of the market. We’re excited, and so are you. But there are still thoughts on…
