Another way too early look at the Leafs and the expansion draft

Given that we don’t know when this season will start or end and when we’ll see the expansion draft it’s probably a bit premature to start planning for how the Leafs will approach it. Of course we’ve looked at this draft twice before on the site, so we’ve set a precedent with being okay with…

What scares you the most about the Leafs?

There’s a good possibility that Kyle Dubas has a sense humour and thought that bringing back Michael Hutchinson the day before Halloween would scare Leafs fans. I think it did, only when we realized that when there’s three NHL goaltenders between him and the net that there was nothing to be afraid of. Though that…

Michael Hutchinson 2: Electric Boogaloo

The Leafs certainly are making sure they don’t find themselves in the awkward situation of having Michael Hutchinson as their backup goaltender again. The way they are ensuring that is by bringing back Michael Hutchinson as their fourth string goaltender. The press release: The Toronto Maple Leafs announced today that the hockey club has signed…

The OHL season and how it affects the Leafs

The Leafs seemed to have a sixth sense about the uncertainty of Canadian junior hockey over the past couple of drafts. And while fans who demand that players be from the same area code as the team they cheer for may be upset, the Leafs have positioned themselves nice to not be carrying a number…

Bogosian by the numbers

Few things are more scary than the idea of looking at Zach Bogosian’s numbers. Zach Bogosian wasn’t brought in for his numbers. He was brought in to be an affordable tank. An unmovable force in front of the Leafs net. He’s here to satisfy our desire for punishing hits at the cost reasonable outlet passes….

Where will Nick Robertson play?

The answer to this question varies greatly based on who you ask. Some have Robertson playing with Matthews or Tavares. Others have Nick Robertson returning to the OHL for one more season of overripening. And pretty much everywhere in between.

There likely isn’t an odd man out on the Leafs blueline

The Leafs have 7 NHL defensemen now that Travis Dermott is signed. By NHL defensemen, I mean defensemen we all reasonably expect to be on a NHL roster at the start of next season. I’ve counted them. It’s Rielly, Muzzin, Brodie, Dermott, Lehtonen, Holl, and Bogosian. That’s 7. That’s not including Rasmus Sandin or Timothy…
