Just over a year ago, on April 27th, Mark Spector was reflecting on the Hall/Larsson trade and blessed us with this important line: Conduct a poll of 200 hockey men, and it might be unanimous: Edmonton got what it needed in that deal, and giving up Hall was well worth it. Now here we are…

The Case for Mike Babcock as the Next GM

Okay, so Lou probably hasn’t even cleaned out his office yet, and he’s barely done his press conference, but it’s time to start talking about who his successor will be. The two most obvious candidates are Kyle Dubas and Mark Hunter. After that one of the experienced assistant GMs around the league like Paul Fenton,…

No Korshkov…Yet.

Reports out of Russia this morning are that Yegor Korshkov will play the 2018-19 season in the KHL.

Jack Edwards Needs to STFU

I guess we’ve got to talk about Jack Edwards. No we really shouldn’t, it should be established that this guy is gross, but with the Leafs not playing until Thursday we probably owe you some content that isn’t just us begging for Komarov to stay out of the lineup.

It’s Not Going To Change Now: Game One Usage

We’ve spent an excessive amount of time dealing with our opinions on “tie goes to the veteran” within Leafs Nation.

Monday Mailbag: Jan 29, 2018

McInjured, Pickard Recalled
