Report: Leafs could be lowballing goalie Jonathan Bernier

Toronto turns over new Leaf with goaltending coach's fresh style

The Toronto Maple Leafs haven't enjoyed consistent goaltending for a long time now. Over the past three years, James Reimer and Jonathan Bernier have each shined in net at different times while crashing and burning at other moments (anyone remember that Oliver Ekman-Larsson goal from center ice against Bernier?).Before Bernier and Reimer, the Leafs cycled through a string of goalies...

Lou Lamiorello becomes new Maple Leafs GM

Change is a constant in professional sports. This is especially true in the NHL, where teams can affect the fortunes of their future with the right signing, trade or draft pick. But if there’s been one constant over the last several decades, it’s that the Toronto Maple Leafs will screw up just about everything. Paying out the nose for a guy who had one productive NHL season...

Watch Toronto's Nazem Kadri pull off high box jump on one foot

There has been a lot of criticism of Leafs forward Nazem Kadri this offseason, and even the Maple Leafs seem to be asking Kadri to prove himself after granting him a measly one-year contract extension earlier this offseason. But Kadri apparently is hard at work getting ready to prove people wrong if a video he shared on Instagram Tuesday of himself working out in the gym is any...

Armstrong says playing with Kessel was ‘frustrating’

Former Toronto Maple Leafs forward Colby Armstrong had choice words about old teammate Phil Kessel. Speaking to Sportsnet 590 (H/T to theScore’s Ian McLaren for transcribing), Armstrong said being the American sniper’s teammate was a bit frustrating.
