Maple Leafs Pregame #14: 5 Things to Watch against the Capitals

Not a heck of a lot of Leafs hockey this week. We’ll have to enjoy what we get, and tonight we get the return of Travis Dermott, which is good. Unfortunately the Leafs get the very good Washington Capitals team, which is bad. It would be nice to see the Leafs rise to the occasion…

Was Jim Matheson right about the Leafs needing “greasy forwards”?

You answered no to this didn’t you? It’s fun to answer no to title questions and frankly it’s uninspired to title posts like that. You’re right to be mad.

It’s an important part of being on the world wide web and discussing sports. Lately I’ve been working off the notion that despite the anger towards the Leafs…

Maple Leafs Pregame #11: 5 Things to watch for in the land of nightmares

Boston again. Boston after a poor performance against Columbus. Boston after going to overtime the previous night and the having to fly out. Boston with Michael Hutchinson in net. It’s safe to say I don’t have a good feeling about this game, despite the overtime win against Boston on Saturday. Remember though, we live in…

Maple Leafs Pregame #10: 5 things to watch against the BJs

It’s election day. After you’ve voted instead of watching three hours of election coverage that will make you want to claw your eyes out, you can watch the Leafs play against a Blue Jackets team that makes their amateur scouts want to claw their eyes out.

Backfilling John Tavares

John Tavares is hurt and that is something we were promised couldn’t happen. At least not in a non-Olympic year. While there’s never a good time for an injury to a star player, the fact that the injury comes during a miserable 4-3-1 start to the year, where the Leafs are still yet to beat…
