Our playlist for dealing with the Leafs

To say we’ve been feeling down around these parts is probably an understatement. We’re having a rough couple of weeks coming to terms with not only the Leafs loss, but the fact that the sweeping changes we want to see are very unlikely to happen. I know I’ve ate my feelings, drank my feelings, and…

Should the Leafs become a slower team?

As much as Mike Babcock was criticized in his time in Toronto, one thing we can all agree on is when the team finally took off after the Matthews lottery, they were a team that played with a ton of pace. Hell, even in the year they finished in dead last, they were at least…

The Leafs will probably sign T.J. Brodie if he hits the market

There’s been a lot of talk about the Leafs’ ability to take a big swing at fixing their defence corps this offseason, usually in the form of a run at Alex Pietrangelo in free agency or moving a substantial name up front to get help elsewhere. Then beyond that, the sort of B-squad gets a…

It really looks like Nick Robertson has fast-tracked his way to the Leafs

Next weekend the Leafs will be playing in playoff games. Call it the “play-ins” or “play-downs” or whatever, but for all intents and purposes, when Toronto goes up against Columbus on August 1st, they’re in do or die mode. Lose 3 of 5 and go home. It’s as important as any other postseason matchup they’ve…

Trading for Seth Jones would be a terrible idea

Ever since the Leafs were eliminated from the playoffs on Monday, I’ve been seeing a lot of how they should explore bringing in Seth Jones, especially since he’s made it clear with Columbus that he’s going to free agency when his contract expires. Whether that’s because he has an issue with the team, or he…

5 reasons why the Leafs are out of the first round… again

Well that sucked. At the end of the day, I’m not entirely surprised, because this is the Toronto Maple Leafs and their entire brand is finding unique ways to crush your soul.

TLN Three Stars: There just had to be a Game 7

What do the Leafs going to a Game 7 and Thanos have in common? Both are inevitable. I mean, at the very least, they’ll get to exorcise those demons, but they should’ve just closed it out, that would’ve been much appreciated. They didn’t really deserve to have this game go to overtime so in the…

How much Cap Space do the Leafs have?

At this point most fans are aware that the NHL trade deadline falls on April 12th, and it’s no secret the Toronto Maple Leafs are looking to add. The mystery is who, and we have some parameters on that. The general consensus is that the Leafs are targeting a middle 6 forward, most likely on…
