Frank Seravalli doesn’t get the sense that Sheldon Keefe’s on the hot seat right now: Leafs Morning Take
By Nick Alberga29 days ago
Don’t get it twisted: Even though the Leafs managed to come from behind to outlast Tampa in OT on Monday night, Sheldon Keefe and company are still unequivocally IN ONE.
It’s outrageous how inconsistent this team has been.
Once again, guest co-host Carter Hutton was with me for the Tuesday edition of Leafs Morning Take. Right off the bat, we dissected another leaky night for Ilya Samsonov, who was chased by the Lightning for the second time this season. He’s really fighting it right now, and being a former NHL goalie, Hutts shed some light on what may be going on behind the scenes for him right now.
Presented by DoorDash, The Appetizer focused on yet another epic come from behind victory against the Bolts. The Knies, Matthews, Marner combined for 10 points and Nick Robertson notched an assist in his season debut. Meantime, full credit to Joseph Woll, who once again was forced to spell a shaky Samsonov. He’s been a phenomenal early season story for this team.
Meantime, the one and only Frank Seravalli dropped by to share some intel on Toronto’s up and down start. We talked John Klingberg, Ryan Reaves, Ilya Samsonov/Joseph Woll, the trade market, and Sheldon Keefe’s status as head coach. As per usual, Frank gave a good perspective of where things are with this team right now.

Lastly, we finished off with some more crease talk as we discussed some ways for the Leafs to get Samsonov some much-needed practice time. Curtis Sanford will have his work cut out for himself —that’s for sure.
Extra, extra: Jay Rosehill be back in the mix for the Wednesday edition of Leafs Morning Take at 11 AM ET. We’ll see what he’s been up to plus tee up the first Battle of Ontario of the season.
