Found August 18, 2013 on HockeyBuzz:
The days of Leo Komarov playing for the Toronto Maple Leafs may not be over. According to a report out of Russia on Saturday, the feisty winger indicated that he still has something to prove in North America and intends to return to the NHL. “I have not finished the NHL. I want to go back there.” Komarov said “After this season, I’m a free agent.” The 26-year-old winger chose...

So why hasn’t Grabovski signed anywhere yet?

Ever since Mikhail Grabovski was bought out by the Toronto Maple Leafs it seemed likely that he’d find a new home quickly. He’s a productive center and tends to drive opponents crazy at times especially teams he used to play for. Steve Simmons of the Toronto Sun heard from one NHL GM about why Grabovski is still waiting for an offer. “He was trying to cash in on getting the...

Markham, ON’s mayor believes that an building an NHL-sized rink won’t yield a second team in Toronto

The probability of the Toronto Maple Leafs agreeing to allow another NHL team to horn in on its monopoly on the hearts and wallets of Canada's most populous city is incredibly small, despite the fact pundits insist that a second NHL team in Toronto "makes too much sense" to not be awarded to the city at some point in the near future.

Toronto Has The Worst Team Corsi

But Tavares finished third in the Hart Trophy voting, ahead of Jonathan Toews, and is pretty much a consensus pick for Team Canada in Sochi while the Leafs are still trying to figure out exactly what they have in Kadri. - A player...

Mike Augello: Nonis: “We Have Enough Cap Space”

Maple Leafs GM Dave Nonis is not concerned about having enough cap space to get defenseman Cody Franson and Nazem Kadri signed before the start of training camp in mid-September. "From our standpoint, we have enough cap space in our minds to get both players signed and that's what we intend to do," Nonis told’s Dan Rosen on Friday. "There are...

GARTH: Recalibration

Welcome to the working week. There are 28 days remaining until the Sabres kickoff their exhibition game schedule on Wednesday September 15th in Montreal. You aren't the only hockey fans with free agency anxiety.
