The Maple Leafs may not have had much success on the ice in recent years, but the city of Toronto has had something to celebrate. Longtime Leafs captain Mats Sundin was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame in 2012, capping off a 18-year career with the honor. Sundin was just the second Swedish player to be inducted, and the first to make it on his first year of eligibility. Sundin was the No. 1 overall pick in 1989, going to the Quebec Nordiques. He was traded to the Maple Leafs in 1994, where he played the bulk of his career and was eventually named captain. He finished his career with 564 goals and 785 assists, and he is also the Leafs franchise record-holder for goals (420) and points (984).

McLaren feels pain, then delivers it

Frazer McLaren needed eight stitches to close the cut on his chin from a fight, another four for a gash on his cheek carved open by a stick later in the game.

Photo courtesy of Veronica Henri/Toronto Sun/QMI Agency By Tony Ambrogio (@SNTonyAmbrogio) Dave Nonis could have a busy few months ahead. And his decisions could impact the Leafs now and moving forward. Nonis traded a 4th liner in Mike Brown to Edmonton and Matt Frattin is coming off a knee injury. An issue that promises to be interesting to watch will be finding a spot for Joffrey...

Toronto Maple Leafs are on a roll

Leaf’s head coach, Randy Carlyle has a few fans in Toronto. Even though the Toronto Maple Leafs won 4- 2 over the New Jersey Devils earlier this week,  head coach, Randy Carlyle was not too impressed with his team’s play in the first 40 minutes of the game.  In fact, he is not satisfied with the progress of the team, despite their recent success.  ”We are not satisfied...

Keys To The Game Vs. Toronto (Thank You Kessel)

After an ugly and dissapointing loss the Bruins have a shot to bounce back against their North East Division foes. The Toronto Maple Leafs. The Leafs have lost their glory and are a big reason the Bruins will be great for years to come.

Mike Augello: Battle of Ontario, Part III; Holding Onto Holzer

The Maple Leafs will need to put forth a better effort against the division and provincial rival Ottawa Senators than they have put forth in their first two outings this season. Toronto was fortunate in the previous contest at the ACC in mid-February, as they were outplayed by the injury riddled Sens throughout most of the game, but earned a 3-0 victory mostly on the strength...

ICYMI Canucks lose to the Columbus Blue Jackets #fireav

AV…duck, the pitchforks are out! The purpose of hockey is to win and the Canucks haven’t been taking two points away from games lately. An overtime loss to Columbus combined with their recent string of efforts is enough to make this quite level-headed Canucks fan thoughtfully finger the panic button. Perhaps the window is closing, perhaps they’re merely the latest reincarnation...

(Video) Embellishment City

What's laughable is a Canucks fans would come up with this spoof video on another team in the NHL diving. The Vancouver Canucks are the poster boys for diving and embellishment, if needed we can do a review of the offenders. This remotely amusing video, calls out the Brad Marchand for what a play during the 2012 NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs. Whatever. You would probably circle the...
