Maple Leafs Are Right to Explore Life After Andersen
Following last week’s blockbuster trade that saw Kasperi Kapanen shipped off to the Pittsburgh Penguins in exchange for a bunch of goodies, it’s clear that the Toronto Maple Leafs are officially open for business. And after an unceremonious qualifying-round loss to the Columbus Blue Jackets, it’s no surprise that general manager Kyle Dubas is looking […]

Maple Leafs Hit a Home Run With Kapanen Trade
Toronto Maple Leafs general manager Kyle Dubas wasted no time in getting back to work after another disappointing end to the season.

Muzzin Injury Raises Questions for Maple Leafs’ Defence
The Toronto Maple Leafs delivered perhaps their best performance of the season on Tuesday afternoon with a dominating 3-0 victory over the Columbus Blue Jackets. Any reason to celebrate, though, was overshadowed by an apparent neck injury to defenceman Jake Muzzin, who was stretchered off the ice late in the third period. News broke Wednesday […]

Should the Maple Leafs Bet Big on Ilya Mikheyev?
Last spring, Ilya Mikheyev was a relative unknown in the hockey world outside of Russia. The then 24-year-old winger had just scored a team-leading 23 goals and 45 points for Avangard Omsk of the Kontinental Hockey League before declaring his intention to make the move to the NHL. By April there were rumblings of his […]
Nick Robertson Should be a Maple Leaf Next Season
During this time of darkness and uncertainty amidst the COVID-19 pandemic, it’s hard to look at the positives in the hockey world. The NHL’s 2019-20 season and playoffs may very well be cancelled, and it’s hard to say when exactly we’ll see our favourite teams take the ice again. But luckily for the Toronto Maple […]

Maple Leafs Win the Biggest Game of the Season Over Panthers
Hockey’s a funny sport. It was less than a week ago that the Toronto Maple Leafs were the laughing stock of the National Hockey League following their embarrassing loss to Zamboni driver turned goaltender David Ayres and the Carolina Hurricanes. Beyond the pure humiliation of losing to an emergency backup goaltender, the 6-3 loss raised […]

Jack Campbell, plucked from the Los Angeles Kings along with gritty winger Kyle Clifford, was not the first (or second, or third) name on most people’s wish lists, but with rumours about the sky-high […]
Maple Leafs: Nylander’s Comeback Season Just the Beginning
Hockey is a results-driven business, and no one knows that better than Toronto Maple Leafs forward William Nylander. After a lengthy contract stalemate and disappointing 2018-19 campaign with just 27 points in 54 games, members of the media and fanbase alike wrote Nylander off as an overpaid prima donna who would never live up to […]

Maple Leafs Must Make a Splash Ahead of Trade Deadline
Despite a strong 16-7-3 run since Sheldon Keefe took over behind the bench on Nov. 21, the Toronto Maple Leafs remain exactly where they started when Mike Babcock was let go: 10th in the Eastern Conference, and on the outside looking in. While the team has certainly performed well on the ice – and most […]
