Leafs TV's Paul Hendrick reports that Toronto will start goaltender Jonathan Bernier in the second of back-to-back games Wednesday night in Calgary, which might be mildly surprising since James Reimer has played fantastic in wins against Pittsburgh and a 43 save shutout in Edmonton on Tuesday night.
This should not be perceived as a slight towards Reimer, because head coach Randy Carlyle has f...

Before the 2013-14 NHL season began, a lot of the hype surrounding the Toronto Maple Leafs concerned the inevitable goaltending ‘controversy’ that lied ahead. With one month in the books, there is little controversy and plenty of praise to be…Read more →The post Why the Leafs shouldn’t even consider trading James Reimer right now appeared first on The Hockey Daily.
The Toronto Maple Leafs resorted to their recent formula for success in their 4-2 victory over Calgary on Wednesday. They got yet an impressive 41 save performance from goalie Jonathan Bernier, had their penalty killing unit stand out in another stellar special teams effort with five penalty kills and two short-handed goals, in spite of being dominated in puck possession and being...
Earlier this year rumors started to ramp up involving the possibility of a second hockey team in the Greater Toronto Area. Those rumors only intensified when Rogers & Bell partnered up to purchased MLSE and GTA Sports and Entertainment proposed to build an NHL-size arena in Markham just outside of Toronto.
All of these intense rumors have been suggesting that there is a serious...
Outshot silly. Gobs of giveaways. Dumb-arse penalties.
And, yikes, drilling the referee in the ear with the puck, which can’t be good. (Spot the cuss words dialogue-bubble floating over Paul Devorski’s bleeding head after Cody Franson rang one up the boards and off his noggin’.)
Really, the Maple Leafs have to cut this out. Otherwise, who knows? They might rack...
Jonathan Bernier looks to be on top of his game again as he led the Maple Leafs to a 4-2 win in Calgary to help Toronto sweep the province of Alberta in consecutive nights. Bernier made 41 saves for the win while Lupul, Raymond and JVR all scored. Matt Stajan and David Jones scored for the Flames.
Toronto is one of those teams to load up on early this season. They are in...
To an Easterner, it’s a mystery why a town in Alberta would be called Fort Saskatchewan. Isn’t Saskatchewan the province next door?
In any event, that’s where Joffrey Lupul was born three decades ago, just 10 miles or so down the highway from here. He grew up besotted with the Oilers and, for one season, was part of the oil-drop tribe.
So there will be tons of Lupuls at Rexall...
Sportsnet's Nick Kypreos reported via Twitter that negotiating perimeters between the Maple Leafs and representatives for team captain Dion Phaneuf would have the pending unrestricted free agent signing a contract extension for more than $7 Million per season.
Is #Leafs Phaneuf worth 50M over 7 yrs? I'm hearing bar has been set in talks and that's where it starts...
Toronto Maple Leafs right wing Carter Ashton will have a hearing with the NHL Department of Player Safety on Friday for a hit on Calgary Flames defenseman Derek Smith on Tuesday night at Scotiabank Saddledome.

The HockeyCentral at Noon guys on Sportsnet discuss the report from Nick Kypreos that contract talks have started with Dion Phaneuf and the Toronto Maple Leafs.
Kypreos states the starting point is around $50M for 7 years.
Phil Kessel has one of the most accurate wrist shots in the NHL, and he showed it off during the Toronto Maple Leafs’ game against the Edmonton Oilers on Tuesday night.
During the second period, the former All-Star winger unleashed a shot from an incredibly difficult angle at the edge of the trapezoid that found the top portion of the net before Oilers goaltender Richard Bachman...
The Art Ross winner is something Leaf fans don’t cheer for unless it’s because he is a member of their fantasy hockey team. However, this season, members of Leaf Nation may be able to enjoy one of their own challenge…Read more →The post Phil Kessel: The Leafs best hope for the Art Ross appeared first on The Hockey Daily.
Phil Kessel has figured into 10 of the Toronto Maple Leafs' last 14 goals.
With seven goals and three assists in the last four games, he'll keep firing away Wednesday night when the Leafs' road trip takes them to Calgary to face a Flames team seeking its fourth straight home win.
Kessel scored twice and added two assists in Tuesday's 4-0 win over Edmonton as the...
Former Toronto Maple Leafs general manager Brian Burke hasn’t taken to sowing his gloats about Phil Kessel.
Burke took huge grief when he got Kessel from the Boston Bruins and gave up two first-round draft picks.
Boston took forward Tyler Seguin and defenceman Dougie Hamilton in back-to-back NHL entry drafts, but Seguin, who was shipped off to the Dallas Stars this past summer...

The Calgary Flames will host the Toronto Maple Leafs tonight in what may seem like a reunion to some. Having several ex-Leaf players on their roster, and even management staff, the Flames will look to use said players to their advantage tonight against their former clubs.
With Matt Stajan centering the first line and Joe Colborne appearing...
