Leafs won’t automatically match any offer sheets this summer

Restricted free agents and offer sheets have been one of the big focal points of the upcoming offseason, with Mitch Marner and the Leafs being at the forefront of this topic.

William Nylander named to 2019 Worlds all-star team

At least he finished off his year on a high note. After Finland upset Canada 3-1 in the 2019 IIHF World Championship in Slovakia, William Nylander was named to the tournament’s all-star team.

Let’s be frank: The Leafs wasted this season

Honestly, I don’t know where to start with this one, so let’s skip the boring intro and get right to it. This season was a waste, no doubt about it. This season began, and ended, on July 1st. We signed John Tavares, and then that’s it. We might as well had done nothing this year,…

Andersen has stepped up his play this series

It’s hard to believe that 10 years ago, we were hard pressed for a decent goaltender to help us get to the playoffs. I love James Reimer as much as the next guy (probably more), but when he’s the best goalie that’s been between the Leafs pipes, that means you’ve had goalie problems. That’s why…
