Are the Toronto Maple Leafs For Real?

Vince Talotta/Toronto Star via Getty Images By Tony Ambrogio   Is Dave Nonis in denial? Does he REALLY think the 2012-13 Maple Leafs – a team that blew THAT lead against Boston – should be in some way reunited? Or is he just going with guys he has a history with, knowing they can’t get the job done and will at the end of the day miss the playoffs making it possible – POSSIBLE...

Grading the Toronto Maple Leafs’ free agency

The Toronto Maple Leafs have not made a big splash in free agency, and don’t expect them to as long as Brendan Shanahan is in charge. The Leafs president was quoted as saying that building a team through free agency is “a bad habit”. So, after hearing that from the Hall of Famer, it isn’t surprising that the signings he and GM Dave Nonis have made are not Sportscenter...

KHL less threatening than ever to NHL

The numbers don’t really add up, but they say an awful lot about the global hockey landscape right now. Petri Kontiola’s new one-year contract with the Toronto Maple Leafs is worth $1.1 million — a tidy sum until you factor in that he paid a little more than $600,000 to orchestrate his exit from the Russian-based KHL. As a result, he’ll essentially be playing for less than...

Maple Leafs bring back Komarov, Frattin, add Robidas

  The theme of the day for the Maple Leafs could be summed up something like this, “2012-2013 reunion!” The only season in which the Leafs qualified for the playoffs was the 2012-2013 campaign, and it featured a roster that had undergone some considerable change. Leo Komarov and Matt Frattin were players that were given […]

Team Finland struggles with line changes, falls all over each other (VIDEO)

YouTube Hockey line changes are better left to the professionals.  Joe Fan has no idea what exactly goes into a smooth change on the fly.  Guys on the bench recognize the end of the shift.  They prepare to hop over the boards as their teammates hop the boards or come through the door onto the bench.  Or, if you’re Team Finland, you fall all over yourself like a bunch of buffoons...

Team Finland Pulls Off Least Graceful Line Change In History History (GIF)

Line changes in hockey really aren’t as easy as they look — just ask Team Finland. Finland squared off against the Czech Republic in their final tune-up game before the IIHF World Championships later this month, but it appears they could use a few more practices if they hope to secure a gold medal. Practices that focus on doors and climbing over walls, that is. Blackhawks prospect...

WATCH: Team Finland’s really, really bad line change

A line change is one of the simple, most fundamental parts of hockey. The guys on the ice go to the bench, and the next players up for a shift get on. Easy, right? Well, apparently not for Teuvo Teravainen, Leo Komarov and Tommi Huhtala of Finland World Championship team. Teravainen tries to hop over the boards, but the gate opens, and he falls down.

Former Leaf Komarov wants back into NHL

Leo Komarov's KHL club had one flight this season of the marathon variety, precisely the kind of tiresome experience that has the former Leaf winger reconsidering his career status. “It took us 12 hours or something,” he said of the near 10,000 kilometre flight from Moscow to Vladivostok, quick to mention the one stop required to refuel along the way. It may not be in Toronto...
