William Nylander update: ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

William Nylander, at the time of publishing, has not yet signed a contract. But you know who has takes about it? A lot of people! With seemingly no connection at all! Take: retired NHL player Marc Savard, who mostly films youtube videos in his basement. I’m hearing that 6.9 mill a year gets @wmnylander in…

Report: The St. Patrick’s Day jerseys are coming back!

Are you excited? A leak today from the icethetics blog, who is almost never wrong, suggested that along with two other NHL teams, a piece of news also involved the Toronto Maple Leafs.

Should the Leafs trade Connor Brown?

Connor Brown’s 2016-17 season seemed like it was cementing him as a building block to be a key complementary piece in the Leafs’ future. Six points in his first seven NHL games at the tail end of 2015-16 showed he was ready to stick around, and after putting up 20 goals and 16 assists in…

What can Josh Thole teach the Leafs about their backup goalie situation?

The Leafs had a great backup goalie situation in 2017-18. They had a surprisingly successful Curtis McElhinney, a recently acquired Calvin Pickard, who’d shown success at the NHL level, and Garret Sparks, who was absolutely on a tear in the AHL. Now, they’ve managed to keep just one of three, with Curtis McElhinney and Calvin…

Preseason Player Preview: Ron Hainsey

Bio Ron Hainsey came to the Toronto Maple Leafs in the 2017 offseason, as a fairly “meh” signing. Coming off playing big minutes in Pittsburgh’s top four (and winning a Stanley Cup), Hainsey’s acquisition wasn’t  exactly met with waves of excitement.
