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,…

TLN Top 20 Prospect Rankings 2017: #17 Justin Holl

It’s time that we all had a Justin Holl conversation. It’s not a pleasant one, but one that needs to be had. As of this moment, there’s a case to be made that he’s the 4th best right handed shot defenseman in the organization, and with developing Timothy Liljegren being somewhat of a good idea,…

Future Star Friday: Josh Leivo

This week we kicked off the TLN Top Prospect Rankings, where we do our darnedest to give you the best look at the Leafs you can get for the price you paid to get them. Anyway, in putting together the rankings, our keen observation skills made us notice that not all the kids were prospects…

Prospect Season Continues: Pronman Ranks the Leafs #13th in the NHL

Here’s the thing about August. It’s a great time to talk about prospects. Why just earlier today, that wonderfully handsome Ryan Fancey gave us a look at some of the honourable mentions from our TLN Top Prospect Rankings. That’s pretty fun. You can also find a series on the Leafs top young’uns over at Pension…
