Making the best of this

No hockey and no hockey talk makes Leafs Nation go crazy. Hitting pause on the season has been interesting. I’ve learned just how much I use sports to navigate my day. The empty moments between meetings, the twitter tab open while I take breaks from mundane excel spreadsheets, and those couple hours a night of…

The NHL has officially decided to suspend the season

A day after the NBA had it’s first case of COVID-19, and suspended it’s season, the NHL cancelled morning skates and team meetings in order to allow the league and the NHLPA to assess their situation and determine next steps.

It’s probably time to send Rasmus Sandin down

I’m assuming this is something that no one wants to hear. I’m also assuming that sending Sandin down when Martin Marincin is sitting right there isn’t something that agrees with you, but hear me out. There’s some reasoning behind this, and it’s not the usual, “if you are only going to play him 10 minutes…

Leafs beat Tampa. Here’s to feeling good all the time

It’s safe to say the Leafs needed this one. It’s also safe to say the Leafs need to be consistently playing like they can beat their likely first round playoff opponent, but consistency is a problem for another day, and for now we can enjoy the Leafs outlasting the Lightning in a 2-1 victory. It…

A first round preview (assuming the Leafs don’t blow it)

So the Leafs are coming off another rough week. They went into California, and had a schedule of three very winnable games against lottery teams and left with one point. To add to that, the Florida Panthers won both of their games since the Leafs last played, and are now sitting one point back of…

Nick Robertson is recognized by the OHL as the best hockey boy of the week

You don’t need me to tell you that Nick Robertson is damned good. Maybe you do? How closely do you follow the OHL? Anyways, Nick Robertson’s 55 goals in 46 games is pretty impressive, and he had a particularly good week last week… #OHL #OnTheRunPlayer of the Week | @MapleLeafs prospect @nickrob2001 of @PetesOHLhockey.

Rielly to return Tuesday? Liljegren returns to the Marlies

Earlier tonight we saw the activation of Cody Ceci from the Injured Reserve, that was immediately followed by the announcement that he would be playing  tonight against the Ducks. There were initially reports that Rasmus Sandin would be the lone defenseman out tonight, but that was soon dismissed by this… Liljegren going back to the…
