Sure, Let’s Talk About John Tavares

It’s nearing Christmas, and if you have kids you’ve been dealing with letters to Santa and catalogs with circled Paw Patrol toys. I guess the adult version of this looking at lists of free agents and dreaming up a scenario where your team has been good enough that a GM is going to bring in…

Oilers Need A Backup Goaltender. Leafs Have Three. Discuss.

With my wife away on business my morning commute this morning meant that I didn’t have an objector to me choosing to listen to TSN Edmonton on the drive in this morning. I consider my wife’s presence somewhat of a blessing because sports radio is terrible and she saves me from myself everyday. Today, I…

TLN Monday Mailbag: December 4th

The call the mailbag post the most anticipated post of the week is an understatement. Well it’s probably an incorrect statement, but for those of us who get to answer the questions it’s probably more fun than it is for anyone reading this. I’m not sure how every single blog has landed on Monday as…

LGD: #HereComeTheOilers

It’s an understatement to say that this game is near and dear to my heart. As a Leafs fan living in Edmonton this is game that has certainly been circled on my calendar since the schedule has been released and I’m looking forward to proudly walking into work tomorrow wearing my Leafs hoodie and toque…

LGD: Black Friday Dealing the Hurricanes a World of Hurt

Earlier today on this site Dylan Fremlin posted that he loves the Carolina Hurricanes and that he thinks you should too. Dylan is a traitor. Dylan has forgotten that it’s Buds All Day, not Buds unless the Hurricanes are playing. Don’t be like Dylan. Dylan thinks the top reason to love the Canes is a guy…

TSN Thinks Toronto Is the Best and They Are Right

Earlier I was reading Oilersnation. Why you might ask? Well, I like to check in on the Jan Brady teams around Canada from time to time and make sure that they are still spending a good about of their time talking about Toronto and how they wish their team and city was good as the…

LGD: Dancing With the Devils in the Pale Moonlight

Since the Devils and the Leafs last met, both of the teams have seen their record normalize a little bit. Both teams are still sitting at the top of the Eastern Conference, but the Devils have gone 5-3-2 in the last 10, while the Leafs have been 5-5-0. For a while it looked like tonight…

Speculating On Who Needs a Forward

Last night TSN produced a handy dandy list of teams that are in the market for forwards around the NHL. This list was presumably made before the Oilers solved all their problems by acquiring Mike Cammalleri, but it’s a list that makes for good discussion when the Leafs have a seemingly endless supply of NHL…

The Soshnikov Recall Is Official

The Leafs have officially recalled Nikita Soshnikov today, sending Freddie Gauthier back to the Marlies. This was an expected move after Pierre LeBrun reported the details of Soshnikov’s contract last week: Nikita Soshnikov, who has yet to appear in a game this season with the Toronto Maple Leafs, instead spending all his time with the…

Radio-ing Elliotte Friedman: Leivo, Soshnikov, JVR, and Marner

One of Elliotte Friedman’s least favourite things is when people pay attention to what he says and find it interesting enough to write about. So I’ll apologize to him in advance because that’s exactly what we’re going to do here. Here is the full segment with Friedman (starts at the 31 minute mark and gets Leafs-centric…

Make It So And Call Up Pickard

Frederik Andersen had one of his best outings of the season last night, but he also provided us with one of the scariest realities we’d have to deal with and that’s how screwed we’d be if he’s ever hurt. Andersen’s arm just got caught and he is in some serious pain. pic.twitter.com/J3jXo2HcQw — Flintor (@TheFlintor)…
