Speculating On Who Needs a Forward

Last night TSN produced a handy dandy list of teams that are in the market for forwards around the NHL. This list was presumably made before the Oilers solved all their problems by acquiring Mike Cammalleri, but it’s a list that makes for good discussion when the Leafs have a seemingly endless supply of NHL…

The Soshnikov Recall Is Official

The Leafs have officially recalled Nikita Soshnikov today, sending Freddie Gauthier back to the Marlies. This was an expected move after Pierre LeBrun reported the details of Soshnikov’s contract last week: Nikita Soshnikov, who has yet to appear in a game this season with the Toronto Maple Leafs, instead spending all his time with the…

Radio-ing Elliotte Friedman: Leivo, Soshnikov, JVR, and Marner

One of Elliotte Friedman’s least favourite things is when people pay attention to what he says and find it interesting enough to write about. So I’ll apologize to him in advance because that’s exactly what we’re going to do here. Here is the full segment with Friedman (starts at the 31 minute mark and gets Leafs-centric…

Make It So And Call Up Pickard

Frederik Andersen had one of his best outings of the season last night, but he also provided us with one of the scariest realities we’d have to deal with and that’s how screwed we’d be if he’s ever hurt. Andersen’s arm just got caught and he is in some serious pain. pic.twitter.com/J3jXo2HcQw — Flintor (@TheFlintor)…

DEAR GOD NO! Kypreos Speculates On Marner

Let’s get something out of the way right up front. I don’t think that Kypreos is saying this deal has been discussed. I don’t think he’s saying it’s going to happen. And I don’t think that Nick Kypreos is correct in his speculation. Now that all of that has been said, let’s take a look…

Riding the Wave: The Nikita Soshnikov Contract

On last night’s Insider Trading on TSN, Pierre LeBrun dropped some new knowledge about part time Leaf/ part time Marlie, Nikita Soshnikov… Nikita Soshnikov, who has yet to appear in a game this season with the Toronto Maple Leafs, instead spending all his time with the Marlies, has a clause in his contract that would…

Is Mike Babcock a Gamer?

There tends to be something very familiar about the way that Mike Babcock builds his lines and how he always has. He’s a big fan of a physical presence on each line, combined with a playmaker, and a finisher. This combination reminds me of the grinder-playmaker-sniper for perfect chemistry in the EA NHL series. Now…

LGD: Amateur Knight

While Leafs fans are preparing for the next rebuild, the schedule has gifted them a home game against an expansion team that is currently using their fourth string goaltender. This should be an easy night, but you can’t ignore that fact that the Leafs have been A) playing terrible lately B) historically tend to lose games like…

LGD: La La Land

Riding the high of beating Randy Carlyle in the O.C. it’s time for the Leafs to bus it up to the road to Los Angeles, or as it’s sometimes called Hollyweird. Like I said, the Leafs won last night and that was good, but that also means the Leafs will be a little tired when…

5 Photos of Jaden Smith Accompanied By Randy Carlyle Quotes

A while back during my first stint at TLN I took a look at how Randy Carlyle pictures could be improved by the addition of Jaden Smith quotes. Some of you liked it, and a lot more of you wanted to have me committed. Since tonight sees the reunion of the Leafs and their former…

5 Leafs You’d Want As Your Amazon Key Delivery Driver

You may have seen the recent release that Amazon has come up with an exciting new way for you to be murdered, assaulted, robbed, receive parcels. It’s called Amazon Key and it seems terrible in every sense of the word. Since I find Amazon Key to be a fascinating disaster waiting to happen, and because…
