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...

Some This And That

from Steve Simmons of the Toronto Sun, - So let’s see if we have this straight. The Maple Leafs had David Bolland, Carl Gunnarsson, Nik Kulemin. Mason Raymond, Jay McClement, Paul Ranger and Tim Gleason when the season ended. And now they have Petri Kontiola, Roman Polak, Mike Santorelli, Leo Komarov, Stephane Robidas and Matt Frattin. And I wonder, is this a hockey club or...

Four Players The Pens Should Target That Shouldn’t Break The Bank

With the NHL Salary Cap set at $69 million, the Pittsburgh Penguins have just a shade over $14.5 million in cap space per Cap Geek, and have only 14 players under contract for next season. Earlier in the week, the Penguins sent qualifying offers to Brandon Sutter, Simon Despres, Jayson Megna, Phillip Samuelsson and newly acquired Nick Spaling. So that 14.5 million will likely be...

Nasty Toe Save By James Reimer Leads To Game-Winning Snipe By Mason Raymond

Last night’s Leafs-Kings game in Los Angeles provided us with one of the better sequences we’ll see this season. Tied at two with the Kings on the power play five minutes into the third period, Toronto goalie James Reimer made an amazing toe save to deny Anze Kopitar on the doorstep. Kopitar then missed the rebound opportunity high, sending the puck around the endboards and towards...

Peter Tessier: Jets & Canucks: Back Where it All Began

Back where it all began When I first came to Winnipeg the Manitoba Moose were the professional hockey team and one I could relate too, they were the Canucks farm team. I knew some of the players, their history and speculated on the their future. Kesler, Hansen, Bieksa, Edler, Burrows and Mason Raymond, were all guys I got to watch play before they became household names to curse...

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]

Mason Raymond attempts spin-o-rama shot, fails miserably

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.

A Thought on Colin Greening's Struggles

As I flipped channels last night between game six of the World Series and the Leafs versus Flames game on TSN, I made a comment on Twitter after watching Mayson Raymond score his fifth goal of the season six minutes into the third period giving Toronto a 3-1 lead. Ultimately, the goal would wind up being the game winner. Why sign Colin Greening to a $2.6 M per year extension...

Red-hot Maple Leafs upend Wild

Mason Raymond scored two goals and James Reimer made 36 saves and the Toronto Maple Leafs beat the Minnesota Wild 4-1 on Tuesday. Toronto scored four goals on only 14 shots. The Leafs improved to 6-1-0, continuing their best start since 1993, when they opened with 10 straight wins. Because of penalties, the Wild spent more than a quarter of the first period on the power play....

Friedman’s 30 thoughts: on 3 on 3 OT, Bobby Ryan, Bryzgalov, fighting and more

The CBC's Elliotte Friedman's graced our Monday evening with a  "30 Thoughts" column. He begins with the P's and Q's of a shootout spin-o-rama (see: Mason Raymond) vs. ettiquette (if you "snow" a goalie, should that be a penalty?), and he continues from there. Among his thoughts: 1. Looked a little bit into Ken Holland's overtime suggestion...

HockeyBuzz Hotstove: Hotstove: Who Impresses You?

The season's just a week old, but I already find myself fascinated with some early-season performances. In some instances, it's really just expectation based -- I was unsure of how a player like Mason Raymond would look with his injury history, for example, and have been blown away by his skating ability and fit in the Maple Leafs lineup. Raymond's game is predicated...

Travis Yost: Spin-o-rama Drama

One of the slightly amusing things stemming from Ottawa's 5-4 shootout loss to Toronto was Paul MacLean's objection to Mason Raymond's spin-o-rama attempt and goal. Since both of Toronto's shooters scored, and both of Ottawa's shooters missed, the story got sort of buried in the post-game -- at least until the Ottawa Sun and the NHL spoke with the team.

Colin Campbell issues a stern reubuttal to Paul MacLean

Ottawa Senators coach Paul MacLean was not amused by Toronto Maple Leafs forward Mason Raymond's spin-o-rama, snow-and-score goal against Craig Anderson, and I guess this falls under the, "Ask a prickly question, receive an equally grumpy answer" category. NHL senior VP of hockey operations Colin Campbell replied to MacLean's, "Should this be allowed?"...

Mike Augello: Leafs Overcome Disorganized “D” In Comeback Win Over Ottawa

The Toronto Maple Leafs had their share of struggles in the season opener against the Ottawa Senators, but rallied from a 4-2 second period deficit to win a 5-4 shootout victory at Air Canada Center Saturday night. Mason Raymond scored a goal and two assists in regulation and a spin-o-rama goal in the shootout to lead the Leafs to their third victory of the season. Nazem Kadri...

from Wayne Scanlan of Senators Extra, Senators head coach Paul MacLean was surprised to see Mason Raymond’s spin move allowed in Toronto’s shootout win over Ottawa. “I was on a conference call at the start of the year with all the other coaches and was informed at that time that that play would be seriously reviewed and you were taking a chance it would be an illegal...

The Toronto Maple Leafs erased a 4-2 second-period deficit, and proceeded to pick up the extra point in the shootout courtesy Mason Raymond and Tyler Bozak. With the win, the Maple Leafs remain undefeated on the season (3-0-0). The performance on Ottawa's end could more or less be divided by two sides: those who played on the Kyle Turris line, and those who did not. I thought...

Carol Schram: Canucks Welcome Dalpe and Stanton as Raymond Shines for the Leafs

Former Vancouver Canuck Mason Raymond scores the winning goal in his first game with the Toronto Maple Leafs. Stings a little, doesn't it? Yesterday, I said I didn't think Raymond would do great things in Toronto. I'll stand by that for now. The goal was pretty flukey, as Raymond's pass attempt bounced off Raphael Diaz's leg and right back onto his stick...
