Monday Mailbag: Is Auston Broken?

If you’re not on Twitter, as always, feel free to email [email protected] if you have any questions for next week’s mailbag! Things are rosy in Leafs land right now.  The sun is shining, snowfall’s just around the corner, there’s a newfound energy around this young Leafs team, and everyone is happy! Wait, actually, no they’re…

Morning-after recap: Ducks? Bucked.

Good teams win close games, or so the old adage goes. This wasn’t a #beautiful game by the Leafs, but it wasn’t exactly an ugly one either. The Leafs controlled play in both the first and third period, created a high number of chances at even strength, drew a pair of penalties, killed off the…

Postgame: Dandy win over Randy

Thank goodness, folks. After an extended losing streak, the Leafs finally did something right. You don’t really see the Leafs win a lot of games that are 2-1 with a minute to go, but hey, a lot of things happen over 82. When it was all said and done, it was 3-1 for Mike Babcock’s…

WWYDW: What would you do with Tyler Bozak?

It’s another October come and gone, and Tyler Bozak is still a Leaf. His whole career, Bozak has never been one to just… play hockey. Every single season without fail, there is always a discussion about whether he’s playing too much. Whether he’s bad defensively or not contributing enough, nothing young Tyler Bozak does ever…

Leafs postgame: Honestly we should’ve just gone to bed

What are sports without a little frustration once in awhile? The Leafs played like garbage tonight and deservedly lost a hockey game by a score that was only kept close by a resurgent Fred Andersen. At the end of things, it was 3-2 Sharks, but as you’ll see in this fancy chart from corsica.hockey, it…

Morning after-recap: Trending downward?

Last night, the Leafs lost, which they do sometimes. The Leafs lost for the third time in four games, which they don’t do quite as often (anymore). And for the first time this season, the Leafs lost back-to-back games. Was this a winnable game? Definitely, the Leafs started off with the lead and were within…

Leafs Postgame: At least Leivo had fun

Maybe they do need more practice. Corsis Powered by Corsica.Hockey Well, they won something tonight! 1st period: Assists are kind of funny. Josh Leivo got one on this goal. Do you see it? Matthews to Kadri and it's 1-0 Leafs pic.twitter.com/Zr8Ns7oo8a — The Leafs Nation (@TLNdc) October 28, 2017 No? Maybe catch a glimpse of it on…

Kasperi Kapanen called up to the show, Eric Fehr loaned to Marlies

Well, there you go. Kasperi Kapanen is once again a Maple Leaf. The hero of game 2 of the first round of the 2017 playoffs, many were wondering when he’d again get his chance. In six games with the Marlies this season, he’s picked up 3 points (all goals), but we all know that Kapanen’s…

Morning-after recap: Late Registration

As the old cliche goes, the Leafs forgot about the first three minutes of last night’s game. 2:53 into the contest, the Leafs saw themselves being out attempted 9-3, and more importantly… down 2-0 on the scoreboard. Could they turn it around? Well, kind of. 1-0 Hurricanes (Josh Jooris goal) Jooris goal pic.twitter.com/axmYIUxJuD — steph…

WWYDW: Where would you put Marner in the lineup?

Mitch Marner has six points in nine games, a statement which is pretty #nice for a 20-year old player. But Mitch Marner isn’t any twenty year old player: he’s Mitch freakin’ Marner. He’s a guy who scored 61 points in his rookie season. He’s a fourth overall pick.  And briefly, he was/(is?) a fourth liner….

Calle Rosen loaned to the Toronto Marlies

Babcock asked Calle to Rise and Calle Rosen. The Leafs signed Calle Rosen in the offseason and he became a Norris Trophy candidate. Two mostly unknown Swedish defencemen in Calle Rosen and Andreas Borgman immediately became best friends and starred in a buddy cop movie on way to the Leafs winning their first Stanley Cup…

Leafs Postgame: Never in doubt

Holy expletive. Honestly, what the hell was that? The Leafs won a game by three goals that they blew a four goal lead in. The Leafs have given up seven goals in two games and still have +8 goal differential. The Toronto Maple Leafs have scored fifteen goals in their first two games of the…
