Vegas Wants to Trade. I Want to Speculate

The first thing you should do after the Leafs win a game 7-2 is start thinking about what players you should trade away. Wait, that’s in no way true, and the Leafs have a very good roster that doesn’t need a whole lot done to it. In fact, while defense may not be a point…

TLN Monday Mailbag: October 2nd

It’s mailbag time! What a wonderful thing to get to do right before the season starts and right after the Leafs just cut half their roster on their way down to the 23 man opening night lineup which needs to be set by tomorrow night. I might be alone on this but I’m awfully excited…

26 Leafs Remaining

It’s that joyous time when the roster starts looking like a roster. The Leafs have unceremoniously axed 23 players from their NHL roster sending players to three very different places: Sweden, the Ricoh Coliseum, and waivers. Here is the release from LeafsPR: So that leaves the Leafs with the following players still kicking around: Who’s…

LGD: Are They Ever Going to Cut Someone?

It’s another Leafs preseason game. I think they’ve played one hundred of these so far. The only solace I can take in this month is that there was no World Cup of Hockey, and every year without one of those is a glorious time to be alive. The Leafs website tells me that they are…

LGD: Preseason Fun with our Francophone Friends

Tonight the Leafs play in Quebec City, a place that is best known for not having a NHL team. They will be playing against the Canadiens, which is additionally funny since no fans hated the Canadiens more than Nordique fans. Anyway, it’s preseason hockey and it’s a great time to give lip service to communities…

WWYD: What Becomes of Andreas Johnsson

Last week Ryan Hobart kicked off our “What Would You Do?” series looking at the Leafs who are bound for either restricted or unrestricted free agency next summer. First up was Josh Leivo, who most Leafs fans have become quite familiar with. This week we’re going down the road to the Ricoh and looking at…

Which Leafs Perform the Best Against “Elite” Talent

With the season just around the corner it’s getting close to the point where we can completely forget about last season and stop looking back to what happened. That being said, it’s getting dangerously close to the point where bloggers can stop relying on making cases for or against players based off of last season’s…

The Leafs Announce Their Camp Roster With a #TBT Addition

It seemed odd that the Leafs were waiting so long to release their training camp roster. Almost like they had something to hide. This morning @LeafsPR tweeted out the full roster and at quick glance it seemed to be everyone associated with the Leafs. All of the players under contract (minus Horton and Lupul), all…

What Moving the Draft Age to 19 Could Mean

It’s September. We haven’t seen hockey in months. One of the furthest hockey things away from now in the Entry Draft, so it makes sense that we talk about that, right? Sorry, it’s happening. The draft is interesting, and what’s even more interesting is the idea that the NHL could move the draft age from…

TLN Mailbag: Hijacked By Jon Edition

Hello everybody! It was a long weekend and if garbage men can push back Monday collection until Tuesday, certainly we can do the same with our mailbag. Our opinions aren’t all that different than the steaming bag of diapers I set out on the curb this morning, so in that spirit, here are a bunch…

TLN Top Prospect Rankings 2017: #7 Joseph Woll

Not since the days of Justin Pogge have the Leafs been so sure they have a top goaltending prospect in the organization. Does that scare you a little? Good. Goaltenders are scary. They might not be voodoo, but they are a little scary and for most of us it’s a little difficult to fully understand…

Rookie Tournament Should Lead to a “Smart” Decision

It’s the final week of August, the Leafs now have all their players signed, we’re just over a month away from games being played, and our focus can now shift to the hockey filler that September provides. We are now 10 days away from the first bit of that filler with the Leafs Rookie Tournament,…
