Leafs place Mike Amadio on waivers and what that means for your weekend

The Leafs have placed Mike Amadio on waivers. This probably isn’t bothering you. He was at best adequate in the preseason, and the three games he played in this year are generally met with “really, Amadio played in three games?” That meaning he wasn’t particularly noticeable. Amadio (TOR) on waivers — Elliotte Friedman (@FriedgeHNIC) October…

Leafs sign Morgan Rielly to a team friendly deal

I guess I can quit my chicken little routine when it comes to the Morgan Rielly contract, as today the Leafs have announced that Morgan will be a Leaf for a very long time… Eight. Mo.

The Leafs reunion with Freddie Andersen seems ill timed

When we last saw Frederik Andersen he was regularly imploding in the Leafs net, and it seemed like his career was coming to an unfortunate end. The Hurricanes didn’t see it that way, and walked away from a promising goaltender they were developing in favour of giving more money to Freddie. It seems like it…

These things happen, and as…

When it comes to Mitch Marner it’s always complicated

After the first round playoff exit last spring it seemed all but certain that there were going to be some high expectations attached to Mitch Marner and a demand for him answering his critics. Unfortunately, that hasn’t happened and instead Mitch Marner has put up just one assist in the first four games, while averaging…

News and Notes: Matthews returns, new lines, and a couple of injury updates

Following last night’s game which included the apparently unforgivable act of having a student athlete sit on the bench instead of an AHL goaltender, the Leafs have closed out the necessary steps in bringing in Michael Hutchinson as their emergency call up goaltender. As expected, the Leafs bring up Michael Hutchinson Whether your issues are…

There is no easy path to keeping Morgan Rielly beyond this season

The second Charlie McAvoy was signed today my mind went where any reasonable person’s mind should go, and that was to how it affects the Leafs. Contracts for Seth Jones, Darnell Nurse, Dougie Hamilton, and others already set the bar high for Morgan Rielly and should have essentially torched the idea of Rielly accepting a…
