TLN Report Card: April 1, 2016

You fine folks have been doing a wonderful job of giving your Toronto Maple Leafs big thumbs up (and down) since we rolled out the TLN Report Card, but I want to make sure you’re all healthy and practice safe thumb judgement. Here’s a quick exercise for your fingers – gimme three sets of ten before…

LGD: Taking the Tank on Tour

Embed from Getty Images I feel better. I was getting a little anxious there after the Toronto Maple Leafs won three straight games (and five of their last six), but with an ‘L’ against Boston, the tank is back on track. And better yet, it’s heading out on tour. After a lengthy six-game homestand, the…

Leafs Talking With Nikita Zaitsev… And Alexander Radulov!?

Embed from Getty Images You’ve got to be kidding me. We already knew about the Leafs interest in CSKA Moscow defenceman Nikita Zaitsev, what with him visiting Toronto and touring the Leafs’ facilities and pretty much agreeing to a handshake deal that would see him in a blue and white uniform next season. But hey… this…

LGD: The Not So Big, Not So Bad Boston Bruins Come to Toronto

Embed from Getty Images Tonight’s game is rather insignificant from the Toronto’s perspective. There’s no Stanley Cup to be won this year, and say what you will about fighting for jobs next season but the vast majority of this group either won’t be back at all or will simply inherit roster spots by default. That said, playing…

TLN Roundtable: Let’s Talk About That 4th Overall Pick Again

Earlier in the week during the Monday Mailbag, I was asked who I would draft if I held the fourth overall pick in the upcoming 2016 Draft (to which I answered Matthew Tkachuk, which is apparently wrong). We followed up on this again in Wednesday’s WWYDW article and it garnered an enormous response from you fine…

We’ve Got New TLN Merch For You!

What do you know about the Nation Network? Well, you know it’s a kick-ass family of websites that cover a bunch of different (mostly non-playoff) hockey teams – but did you know the Nation wants to make sure that when you do tear yourself away from our hot hockey takes and go outside, you look good…

TLN Report Card: March 25, 2016

Another week, another… three straight wins? What the actual hell is this? I thought Toronto was supposed to be tanking? I just don’t know what to believe anymore. But hey, three straight wins means there must have been a number of Leafs stepping up and exceeding expectations. Let’s grade them, shall we? Here’s the latest…

WWYDW: Picking Fourth

With ten games left in the regular season and, obviously, no playoffs to look forward to, your focus is probably moving towards the 2016 offseason and all of the fun that comes with it. Besides a potentially enormous dip into the free agent pool, the NHL Entry Draft is going to demand a lot of…

This is how you fix the NHL Draft Lottery

Embed from Getty Images The NHL Draft lottery is broken, and it’s the Edmonton Oilers’ fault. General managers all around the league seem to agree with this notion and have already begun discussing ways in which the lottery could be updated or amended so that winners can’t keep winning over and over (and over) again.

Monday Mailbag: Justin is Back

What’s up TLNers? It’s your fearless leader back in the Mailbag seat once again. As always, thanks for all of your submissions. If you want to ask your own question, make sure you tweet @TLNdc or myself, @thejustinfisher, and I’ll get back to you next Monday. Today we’re talking Morgan Rielly, William Nylander, the 2016…
