It’s time to start hating the Blue Jackets

What a long, strange journey it’s been. We’ve just gone through our longest non lockout related break from hockey and the reality of the Leafs playing tonight is finally hitting, and it’s hitting hard.

Getting ready for the BJs

Anyways… It’s been a long few months of waiting for this moment, and it’s finally here. The Leafs are playing the Blue Jackets, and a lot of digital ink has been slipped over the past couple of months on this matchup. With that in mind, what better way to know our enemy than to take…

It’s a Leafs game day! Nature is Healing!

Allow me to pull back the curtain on the glamorous world of hockey blogging. It’s not a lot of fun writing pregames or post games. That being said, when we’ve been waiting to watch hockey since the middle of March and get some closure on the season, today it’s feeling pretty darn good. While the…

Introducing The Leafs Swear Jar

Hockey is back! And with that is our desire to complain about hockey. It’s only natural. My attempt to curb complaining came with this throwaway tweet (aren’t all tweets really throwaway tweets though?): I'm wondering if Leafs twitter can collectively promise not to lose its shit when Robertson only gets 7 minutes of ice time…

Is Laurence Gilman a potential fit for the Coyotes job?

For once when asking a question in the header of a post, the answer isn’t no. Unfortunately Leafs fans probably should want the answer to be no, as keeping Laurence Gilman is likely the better outcome for the Leafs. Yesterday it was announced that John Chayka has left the Coyotes organization. An interesting story unto…
