Found December 19, 2013 on The Nosebleeds:

Mason Raymond attempted to embarrass the Coyotes defense with a spin-o-rama move on a first period rush Thursday in Toronto. It did not go well. Instead, Raymond wound up lookin’ like the fool when his attempt failed miserably and he wound up flopping around like a fish out of water. That’s so Maple Leafs. The post Mason Raymond attempts spin-o-rama shot, fails miserably appeared first on The Nosebleeds.


GIF: Mason Raymond's failed spin-o-rama

Mason Raymond tried to pull off an ambitious spin-o-rama against the Phoenix Coyotes. It's safe to say things didn't go according to plan. As he backed in towards the Phoenix net, he first lost the puck and then lost his balance in what might be the most embarrassing play of the month.  Maybe this is why you only see the spin-o-rama in the shootout.  (H/T Reddit Hockey) [follow]

Dreger: Cody Franson a potential target

On today’s Dreger Report, Darren Dreger noted that the Rangers are still shopping Michael Del Zotto, and that the Leafs are still a potential fit. Since the Rangers are looking for a right-handed shot on the blue line, Cody Franson is the name that Dreger has thrown out as a potential target. Dreger also mentions that Jake Gardiner is being shopped by the Leafs. If I had a choice...

Eklund: Your Call: Is Phaneuf Worth a Max-Term Contract?

With the NHL salary cap ceiling about to shoot up next year -- and, almost certainly, to continue expanding rapidly in the years to follow -- there is virtually zero doubt that impending unrestricted free agent Dion Phaneuf could command a $7 million to $8 million cap hit on the open market. There is really no point in debating whether he's "worth" that cap hit...

Mid-90’s trade rumors helped fuel Stevie Y

I don't plan on following the reports from the Maple Leafs alumni's practices ahead of the "Alumni Showdown" games--save noting that the Toronto Star reported that Mats Sundin won't be able to take part due to knee surgery--and I've kind of ignored Sportsnet's "Greatest Maple Leafs of All Time" profiles on their 24/7 page (again, the "...
