Lottery winners?! Auston Matthews is the superstar Maple Leafs have lacked for 99 years

Somewhere, somehow, some quack-job Toronto Maple Leafs fan found a magic lamp. Or wand. Or puck. Or Punch Imlach’s fedora. Or anything to wish a mystical transformation upon hockey’s most sad-sack franchise. And all the far-fetched theories or ideas typically reserved for irate late-night radio show callers began to come true. “Yo, the Leafs should make Brendan Shanahan their...

Should the Leafs Re-sign Peter Holland?

The Toronto Maple Leafs have 19 players with contracts expiring this summer. Now obviously most of the UFA players will be let go while most of the RFA players will be signed. Out of all the players that have expiring contracts only Peter Holland gave me pause. How much should the Leafs re-sign Holland for? Where would he even fit in the lineup? Do the Leafs even need him? How Much...

My Leaf Blue Print: The Case For Selecting Alexander Nylander

Déjà Vu for Leafs Nation? For the first time since the 1984 to 1985 National Hockey League (NHL) season when the Maple Leafs finished in last place, which gave them the right to select future Leaf captain Wendel Clark first overall, Toronto managed to finish in the basement of the NHL standing in the 2015 to 2016 NHL season.  However, unlike the good old days some three decades...

Why Steven Stamkos Should Come To Toronto

Last year, I wrote about how Mike Babcock should join the Toronto Maple Leafs even though the future of the team didn’t look that great. In numerous comments, I was told that it would never happen. Why would one of the best coaches around today want to come to a team that was starting a rebuild? Well, Babcock proved me right by surprising nearly everyone by signing an eight-year...

Would Matthews or Laine be Better for the Maple Leafs?

The Toronto Maple Leafs dedicated their 2015-16 season to put in place a long-term rebuilding plan. They knew they were going to be a basement team.

The first was to bottom out and get the best odds at winning the NHL’s draft lottery...

Report: Panthers expected to cut ties with Dave Bolland

One of the silliest things an NHL general manager can do during free agency is chase a big name just because he’s a big name in a weak free agent crop. That’s exactly what Florida Panthers general manager Dale Tallon did when he signed David Bolland to a five-year, $27.5 million contract prior to the 2014-15 season. Bolland had a reputation as a leader and a winner from his...
