Apparently the Leafs and Simmonds are working on an extension

The Leafs are chipping away at another pending free agent, as it appears they’re working on a contract extension with Wayne Simmonds. Elliotte Freidman first tweeted about it earlier today, but it also lead off his 31 Thoughts column today as well. 1. Nothing is done until it is done, but it sounds like Wayne Simmonds will be…

William Nylander might finally be getting the respect he deserves

For the first time in probably his entire career, William Nylander isn’t the poster boy for trade talks. Sure, you still have the occasional uncle that still thinks he’s overpaid, but for the most part, people seem to think it’s crazy to see him go.

Whether that’s because he has an issue with the team, or he…

5 reasons why the Leafs are out of the first round… again

Well that sucked. At the end of the day, I’m not entirely surprised, because this is the Toronto Maple Leafs and their entire brand is finding unique ways to crush your soul. But I definitely wasn’t expecting this. The Leafs had the best regular season in franchise history as far as points percentage goes, and…

TLN Three Stars: There just had to be a Game 7

What do the Leafs going to a Game 7 and Thanos have in common? Both are inevitable. I mean, at the very least, they’ll get to exorcise those demons, but they should’ve just closed it out, that would’ve been much appreciated. They didn’t really deserve to have this game go to overtime so in the…
