TLN Roundtable: We Need the D

We’re four games into the season. The Leafs are 3-1-0, but hey, let’s panic about something and thing worth panicking about is probably defense. The Leafs averaged 4 goals against so far and as much fun as it is to put that all on the goaltender, we’ll spread it around a little here because the…

LGD: The Devils Rejects

When you’re 3-0 and just came off a tough win against the Blackhawks, few teams are more of a welcome sight than the New Jersey Devils. I’m also pretty sure that’s the first time welcome sight and New Jersey were used in the same sentence. The Devils will spend the season living and dying by…

TLN Canadian Team Power Rankings

We’re a week into the season and we are already seeing Canadian teams shake out the way we expected them to. The Leafs are unstoppable force that cannot be defeated, the Flames are okayish, thanks to the savvy addition of Tanner Glass, and the rest of Canada is 8,891 km of suck. Periodically we’ll have…

Pickard is a Leaf (Marlie) and Lindberg is not

Few things bring me the same joy as a Leaf trade. I guess one thing that brings me more joy is a trade that I’ve been pining over for a couple of days. That trade is the acquisition of Calvin Pickard from the Vegas Golden Knights, and all for the low, low cost of Tobias…

Marincin Clears, Rosen Recalled

This post is about closure and as it often does, waivers has played out in the most boring fashion. Marincin has cleared waivers and is Marlies bound. This is good news as he’s definitely still an asset within the organization, and they didn’t lose him for nothing. It’s also good for those of us who…

Martin Marincin On Waivers

We all thought this could happen, but then it didn’t. Then the Leafs seemed to do fine without him last night and now he’s gone. Martin Marincin is now on waivers. Normally there’s nothing surprising about a team waiving a seventh defenseman, and waivers have certainly been active at this point in the season, but…

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…
