The off-season for the Maple Leafs’ goaltenders will take divergent paths, but at least Jonathan Bernier, who will have sports hernia surgery on Wednesday, knows where he will be when the Leafs open training camp in September. James Reimer? Not so much. “I have no idea, to...

Toronto’s Wasted Season

from Michael Traikos of the National Post, It’s a shame, really. At this point in the season, we should be talking about how Phil Kessel is closing in on 40 goals and has thrown his name into the mix for the Hart Trophy. We should be debating whether Jonathan Bernier’s numbers are good enough for a Vezina Trophy nomination and how James van Riemsdyk, Nazem Kadri, Morgan...

Power Play Eludes Ducks in Loss to Toronto

The Ducks have now lost three in a row – two in a shootout and now a 3-1 loss to the Toronto Maple Leafs on Monday night.  So much for showing former coach Randy Carlyle how much they have improved without him behind the bench.  Those three losses have also allowed the St. Louis Blues to catch up and pass the Ducks in the standings by a point. Perhaps some of the blame for...

The Toronto Maple Leafs are fading fast

After watching the first period of the St. Louis game, I realized that goal tending is not the problem plaguing the Toronto Maple Leafs.   It is the team’s lack luster performance. The Leafs are in a slump right now and there seem to be no end to it. This is the worse time to go into a six game losing streak, knowing other teams are fighting for play off berth. As of now, the...
