Morning after-recap: Serving up justice

Here’s a good recap from last night: WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO *takes breath* WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO The Leafs haven’t been winning a whole lot recently and even less in regulation. They didn’t win in regulation, even though they probably should have and deserved to after uh, a questionable call. It was a dumb game, and frustrations have been high in recent…

Auston Matthews only Leaf named to all-star game

For the second time in as many seasons, Auston Matthews was named to the NHL’s all-star game, representing the Atlantic Division. And that was it, from the Toronto contingent. No other Leaf was named, which is a clear-anti Toronto bias, or something. In 34 games, Auston Matthews has put up 19 goals and 14 assists…

Morning after recap: Sore?

The Leafs came out flying in the first period, and won in the shootout over an expansion team. In October, that would’ve seemed like a disgrace. But for now, a win’s a win, two points are two points, and let’s discuss it. Auston Matthews was playing despite reportedly being “sore” earlier in the day, and…

WWYDW: Should the Leafs make changes to their lineup?

The Toronto Maple Leafs are ROLLING right now. Sure, it’s only three games.

But ALSO… we haven’t been in an argument about Josh Leivo recently. Also,…

WWYDW: Who re-signs next summer?

Let’s think big picture today, because it’s a Wednesday evening in August and what else would you rather do than stress about NEXT offseason? In case you need a reminder, here’s a list of the Leafs’ contract situations. Out of the “core pieces”, we’ve got JVR, Tyler Bozak and Leo Komarov all potentially hitting the…

TLN Top 20 Prospect Rankings 2017: #16 James “JD” Greenway

Known formally by “James Greenway” and informally by most as “JD”, he’s known to us as the sweet 16th ranked prospect on our rankings. From all accounts so far, JD seems to be a good kid with a decent sense of humour, but how does that translate to the ice? *Not to be confused with…

Monday Mailbag: “When the heck does the season start?” edition

August. Twenty-first. Two thousand AND Seven…teen. The point of the year where you do things like care about a big star in the sky, potential Leafs d-pairings and also Connor Brown’s contract or lack thereof. Caring about hockey at this point in the year is weird because you either care so much or just want…
