Toronto Maple Leafs Top Five Young Players

Last season the Toronto Maple Leafs finished sixth in the NHL Atlantic Division with only 84 points and a 38-36-8 record. The team’s goal against number is 256 which is the 26th worse in the league; their penalty kill percentage is 28th.  The team isn’t full of great two-way players, with their best plus/minus rating being a +3 coming from Tyler Bozak. But what they do have...

Nonis: Gunnarsson departure means Gardiner, Rielly need to step up

One of the curious trades made on Saturday involved the Toronto Maple Leafs. They dealt defenseman Carl Gunnarsson and the 90th overall pick to the St. Louis Blues for Roman Polak. While that deal netted the Leafs a physical blue liner, it also sent Dion Phaneuf‘s top-pairing partner out of town. That means there’s a spot next to the Leafs captain and a chance to play a lot...

Core Players In Toronto Appear To Be Staying

from Michael Traikos of the National Post, There were rumours that the Florida Panthers wanted James van Riemsdyk in exchange for the No. 1 pick in this weekend’s draft. But the core of the Leafs remains off-limits for now. And help is not necessarily on the way either. According to president Brendan Shanahan, “I don’t think July 1st is ever a great day to rely upon...

How About Some Leafs Talk

from Mike Brophy of CBC, From this little corner of the hockey universe, I see only four players on the Maple Leafs who should be considered untouchables: Bernier, defencemen Morgan Rielly and Jake Gardiner and left-winger James van Riemsdyk. All others should be made available to allow Toronto to become a better defensive team that is willing to pay a price for victory...

Toronto Maple Leafs’ four untouchables may surprise you

As mentioned earlier, the Maple Leafs are rumored to be shopping major players (and a majorly expensive player) to the Panthers for the first overall pick. That isn’t all that GM Dave Nonis is reportedly considering. As a follow-up to that terrible trade rumor (Phaneuf, Kadri, and the Leafs’ eighth overall pick to Florida for the first overall pick and Ed Jovanovski), it seems...

Leafs players not surprised by Carlyle’s return

Morgan Rielly and Nazem Kadri were hanging out in their hotel room at the world hockey championship when Twitter told them the news. The Toronto Maple Leafs were holding a news conference, so they got curious. It didn't take long for them to find out via social media that coach Randy Carlyle was coming back — with a two-year extension — and assistants Greg Cronin, Scott...

Video: Cristobal Huet’s amazing save against Canada

France defeated Canada by a score of 3-2 in a shootout at the World Championships. The upset – and what an upset it was – could be credited to Stephane Da Costa’s two goals and by an amazing performance from Cristobal Huet. Huet’s best save of the game was this gem on Canada’s Morgan Rielly. Incredible. Huet got just enough with his diving effort to sent Rielly’s shot...

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...

Maple Leafs are 'tuning' out

The media quickly dubbed it The Day The Music Died. Randy Carlyle certainly noticed when he walked through the players quarters before Monday’s practice that the high-decibel modern music mix had been turned low or off completely. The coach interpreted the gesture two ways. As a fan of ’70s-era tunes, he was grateful for the silence, but also knows his playoff challenged team...

Maple Leafs won't have easy time on road to playoffs

Buckle up, Maple Leafs fans. The road to the Stanley Cup playoffs isn’t about to get any more smooth. That became fact on Wednesday when general manager David Nonis decided to take all of his irons out of the fire and stand pat as the National Hockey League’s trade deadline came and went. Not that Nonis, who had his eyes peeled for a centre and a defenceman, could have added...

Maple Leafs have success splitting up Morgan Rielly and Jake Gardiner

As much as Randy Carlyle likes the offensive skills that Jake Gardiner and Morgan Rielly can bring as a defence pair, the Maple Leafs coach also has a firm grip on what the youngsters can learn when put with a veteran. Gardiner and Rielly had been together for 10 games before Carlyle broke them up on Thursday night, after the two were weak on for the Florida Panthers’ first goal...

Morgan Rielly: Phil Kessel Is A ‘Mutant Almost’

Toronto Maple Leafs forward Phil Kessel is on some sort of a roll right now, and it’s no coincidence that the Leafs are playing their best hockey of the season. Just two weeks ago, the Leafs were struggling mightily with some even wondering if head coach Randy Carlyle might lose his job because of the prolonged slump. However, Toronto has turned it around as of late. The Leafs’...

Stop The Randy Carlyle Must Go Talk

from Damien Cox of the Toronto Star, So, unless you believe Leaf history should just keep repeating itself, let’s just end this conversation that Carlyle should go, OK? Ditto for the chatter about these players quitting on this coach. If that’s the case, it says a lot more about the quitters than the coach. Whether Carlyle is or isn’t liked is simply irrelevant. It’s...
