TLN Draft Prospect Watch: Clayton Keller

Embed from Getty Images After Auston Matthews there’s a steep drop off when it comes to centers in the 2016 draft.

Exit Interview: Nylander, Sparks, Hyman

Embed from Getty Images The TLN Exit Interviews are still trucking along and today we take a look at three players who made their NHL debuts this season. Arguably all three did better than expected but how much of a future do they have with the Leafs? How many Dubas heads did they earn? These…

TLN Draft Prospect Watch: Pierre-Luc Dubois

Embed from Getty Images There seems to be a belief that Pierre-Luc Dubois is someone who has gone skyrocketing up the draft charts throughout the season, and that CHL Top Prospect was the call to arms to start giving Dubois the attention he deserves. Really, it’s just been a couple of rankings like Craig Button’s…

TLN Draft Prospect Watch: Matthew Tkachuk

Embed from Getty Images He has a familiar name and the pedigree that goes with it. Being a 100 point player on the powerhouse London Knights, who just happened to be owned by the guy running the draft for the Leafs. He has NHL size (194 lbs, 6’1), and he’s dominated at every level. That’s…

WWYDW: Leafs Other RFAs

Embed from Getty Images In case this is the first Leafs thing you’ve looked at today, you’ve probably noticed that Morgan Rielly and Nazem Kadri have been re-signed to very reasonable six year deals.  I’m sorry, I didn’t mean to say very reasonable.

Speculating on Kadri’s Next Contract

Embed from Getty Images The Leafs season is coming to a close and with that a gloriously long window of time to begin negotiating contracts on the free agents the Leafs would like to see return, or at the very least are uncomfortable seeing them walk away for nothing. One of those deals that probably…

TLN Draft Prospect Watch: Patrik Laine

Embed from Getty Images It’s a bit of an overstatement to say that Patrik Laine wasn’t on the radar at the start of the 2015-16 season. He was certainly a prospect that people had their eyes on in September, but generally as a top 15 or top 10 pick. Bob McKenzie’s rankings had Laine at…

LGD: IT’S ALMOST OVER!!!

Embed from Getty Images You’ll notice we’re a little late at getting you the pregame for tonight’s game against the Flyers. That’s largely because we’re so excited for the post game, which could include the Leafs clinching 30th overall and the Flyers making it more difficult for the Bruins to make the post season.  Yes….

LGD: El Alamein

Embed from Getty Images Tonight we are about to enter possibly the most critical tank battle of the season, as the Leafs take on the Blue Jackets in the final home game of the season. Toronto might feel compelled to win their final game in front of a home crowd, but I assure you that’s…

Nazem Kadri Suspended For Four Games (Rest of Season)

Embed from Getty Images When Kadri crosschecked Luke Glendening in a retaliatory act on Saturday night there was a good chance he was going to be looking at a suspension. Kadri being a repeat offender certainly seemed to guarantee it wouldn’t be a short suspension either. Now we officially know the damage… Toronto’s Nazem Kadri…
