Maple Leafs Pregame #50: 5 Things to watch against the Preds

The bye week is over. We made it. The All-Star Game is over and we don’t need to talk about it for another year. Another victory for us! Anyways, the Leafs find themselves coming out of the break in Nashville, and finding themselves in 10th place in the Eastern Conference. Honestly, this isn’t as horrific…

LeBrun: “Dubas Could Strike Early”

No hockey means more trade deadline content. That’s a sad fact. The other sad fact that is even when hockey resumes we’ll still probably spend the next month talking trades instead of games, but thankfully we’re exactly one month away and it will all be over soon (until summer). TSN and their army of insiders…

The level of difficulty for the Leafs remaining schedule

The Leafs have 33 games remaining in the rest of the season. They are presently sitting four points back of a playoff spot. They are 10th in the conference in points. They are 10th in the conference in points percentage. It’s an uphill battle, but not impossible. Not an impossible deficit to overcome, especially since…

Willie Nylander: The Comeback Kid

Folks, I don’t need to tell any of you how great William Nylander is. You’re smart. You’ve been watching the games. You’ve looked at the stats. You’ve seen that Nylander is well on pace to exceed 30 goals this season, you’ve seen that he’s regularly elevated the game of both Matthews and Tavares, and you’ve…

Sitting Andersen tonight would be the right call.

Sheldon Keefe stated earlier today that the Leafs had a number of game time decisions they were planning to make on banged up players heading into tonight’s game with the Chicago Blackhawks. This is interesting for a few reasons. The main reason being that this is the Leafs final game before beginning their bye week…

Allow me to suggest that the Leafs should be interested in Matt Dumba

Here’s the thing. The Leafs blueline, it’s not very good. In fact it’s pretty bad. If the Leafs get Rielly and Muzzin back, we’re a bit happier, but if you ask anyone what the biggest flaw on the team is they are probably answering defense, or possibly William Nylander, assuming you’ve asked your terrible uncle….

What should the Leafs do with Tyson Barrie?

It seems as if the Leafs have been treated to three Tyson Barries so far this season. First, we had the Babcock Tyson Barrie. He was the one who was horribly miscast on a shutdown pairing with Jake Muzzin, saw too many defensive zone starts against tough competition and successfully dragged down Muzzin rather than…

Maple Leafs Pregame #48: 5 Things to Watch for against the Flames

The Leafs picked up a much needed win against noted win donors the New Jersey Devils the other night, but face a bit more a legitimate challenge tonight in the Calgary Flames. I mean, not really all that legitimate, they are decent by Pacific Division standards and Lucic in their lineup, but still the difficulty…
