What we know about the Leafs latest KHL signing, Kirill Semyonov

Nothing like dropping the kids off at school and getting a LeafsPR alert on the way home. Is Andersen activated from the LTIR? Did the Leafs hire Bruce Boudreau as a special teams consultant? Nope it’s European Free Agent, and the Leafs did as they always do, they partook in a signing… 🖋 We’ve signed…

Campbell vs. Andersen is not really much of a goaltender controversy

The are few story-lines lazier in hockey than the goaltender controversy. It’s essentially just the guy who wasn’t the opening night starter isn’t the best goaltender on the team anymore. That’s the situation for the Leafs as they have Jack Campbell now sitting at an incredible 15-2-1 record with a .927 save percentage, while @Frederik…

Leafs and the joys of (lite) load management

If it was really load management it would have been happening all along and not just emerging in the final two weeks while the Leafs close out their season. From early on in the season it seemed painfully clear that the Leafs are a notch above their North Division rivals, and frequently had to beat…

Thoughts on the Leafs forwards heading into the playoffs

It seems like stretches without hockey are a rarity. In a lot of ways, with the weather improving, it’s quite welcome. In other ways I just want the season to hurry up and end so we can get on with the playoffs already. This seems to be heightened by the fact that the Leafs can…

How Morgan Rielly has done against North Division competition

It was just over a month ago that I decided to explore what the Leafs have in Morgan Rielly. The reality then is the same as it is today, Rielly is a talented offensive defenseman, that will always let us wanting more from him in his own zone. I think everything was summed up pretty well…

Lately it seems like Joe Thornton has been adjusting his style of play to fit with his likely bottom six deployment for the reminder of the season and into the playoffs. With that he’s add a bit of chippiness to his game, that is generally welcome, but crossed a line Thursday night in Winnipeg and…

Save percentage and the Leafs success

Here’s the thing, we all know what happened last night, and no one is going to be more familiar with what happened than the Leafs goaltenders. Quite simply, David Rittich shit the bed. He’s not the first Leafs goaltender to do it this season, and there’s a lot of evidence showing that he won’t be…

TLN Three Stars: SPOILER ALERT-David Rittich didn’t make the cut

The Leafs lost 6-3 to the Canucks. Their second loss to Canucks following their return from COVID. The Leafs five loss in a row. If you are looking for silver linings and optimism in this post, you’ll be disappointed. I mean, we still can scrape together three worthwhile Leafs for the three starts, but to…

Finding a spot in the lineup for Nick Foligno

The question of where Nick Foligno plays seems like it would have been a lot harder to answer before Alex Edler went knee hunting on Zach Hyman, so the easy answer seems to be, he’ll go where Hyman was, and that’s that. Well, if you are happy with that answer, thanks for reading, please click…

Changes to the Leafs schedule announced

Given the rather serious COVID outbreak experienced by the Vancouver Canucks organization, it was inevitable that there were schedule changes coming for the Leafs. The initial schedule changes looked like they could have had the Leafs playing four games in five nights. Fortunately, that isn’t the case and the NHL released the revisions today. Leafs…
