Roundtable: Absolutely, the Broon’s

Like it or not the Leafs are facing the Bruins in the first round of the playoffs again. We’ve known about this for sometime, but soon it will be happening on your very own TV set. A lot of people aren’t looking forward to this, and for good reason, it will be challenging, and hard,…

Garret Sparks to rediscover his technique, cue montage

The recall of Michael Hutchinson this morning had all the necessary elements required to throw Leafs Nation into its far too common state of panic. Personally I went through four stages of goaltender grief. Stage 1: LOL, Sparks is scratched Stage 2: OMFG!!! What if something is wrong with Andersen Stage 3: Is Woll ready…

LGD: A game as meaningless as existence itself. Eat Arby’s

It’s hard to get pumped up about game 81. The Leafs have their playoff spot clinched. They know who their opponent will be. They know that they are the third seed. The Lightning have clinched the President’s Trophy. Nothing they do will have any impact on who they face. They know they get home ice…

Marlies sign Justin Brazeau to a two year AHL deal

Nothing like a good AHL signing to get you going in the morning. Well, as far as AHL signings go this probably is a good one, as there were a number of NHL teams interested in Justin Brazeau, but as Darren Dreger reported this morning, he’s signed a two year deal with the Marlies… Justin…

Rest for Andersen benefits both goaltenders

Mike Babcock has a plan for Andersen and Sparks usage down the stretch. That might comfort a lot of people, but it doesn’t really comfort me. You see, I’d really like Andersen playing as little as possible, since, I dunno, when he’s in he’s often looked like a guy who needs a night off, and…

Jonday Mailbag

The Leafs fan base seems to be imploding after last week and the questions we’re getting seem to stem from that feeling. We’ll try and cool down the anger and send you off in a much more relaxed state of mind. Should Sheldon Keefe be the next head coach of the Leafs? — Graeme Nishida…

LGD: Gritty in the City

Howdy folk’s. Is it a good sign when your mascot is your biggest star? Probably not. Anyways, the Flyera have been trucking along and refusing to let go of their playoff hopes. In many ways they are a less sad version on the Edmonton Oilers. On the other hand you have the Toronto Maple Leafs,…

Assessing Jake Muzzin’s Quarter Season with the Leafs

The consensus coming out of the Jake Muzzin trade was that it was a pretty steep price to pay for a player, but that Jake Muzzin was a worthwhile addition to the Leafs. In the time since that trade we’ve now seen the Leafs struggle, and we’ve seen Carl Grundstrom score in his first two…

Your Tavares Night Bingo Card

It seems like Islanders fans are definitely not over John Tavares, and a quick review of their Reddit page suggests that they are expecting to be drunk, loud, and ready to burn things. With all of that in mind, we’ve put together a handy Bingo card for you to play tonight. It will probably be…

LGD-Tavares Eve

Really when you think about it, tonight’s game is just really a hassle. You can tell the locker room is focused on Tavares facing the Islanders tomorrow, it’s definitely a game that means something to fans as well, and we’re going into it as the second half of a back to back because the schedule…
