Should The Leafs Trade For Artemi Panarin?

We’re into the dog days of summer now, but these quiet days make for plenty of speculation amongst fans and insiders alike. Last night, Elliotte Friedman appeared on NHL Tonight and tossed around the idea of the Leafs being interested in Columbus Blue Jackets forward Artemi Panarin. 2017-18 saw Panarin put up a career-best 82 points…

Maybe Later: Cameron Hillis?

Who is Cameron Hillis? Cameron Hillis is a centerman for the Guelph Storm of the OHL. Taken 28th in the 2016 OHL draft, Hillis is coming out of his rookie OHL season in which he put up 59 points through 60 games. At 5’11” and 168 pounds, Hillis is neither massive nor undersized – he’s…

With the 25th Overall Pick, The Toronto Maple Leafs Select… Aidan Dudas?

Who Is Aidan Dudas? A passing glance at Aidan Dudas wouldn’t necessarily scream “centerman for the OHL’s Owen Sound Attack”. Clocking in at just 5’7″, Dudas may be entering into a league where size is quickly becoming a thing of the past, but even still remains an underdog in that regard. Drafted 10th overall in…

2018-18 Leafs Season In Review: Patrick Marleau

2017-18 saw Paddy Daddy Marleau donning a non-San Jose Sharks jersey for the first time in his 20-year NHL career. Last summer, Marleau inked a huge 3-year contract with the Leafs at $6.25 million per season. Despite that contract being a massive cap pill to swallow for a player who will turn 39 before next…

2017-18 Leafs Season in Review: Tomas Plekanec

It still feels weird to be writing a piece about noted Toronto Maple Leaf Tomas Plekanec, but here we are. Plekanec’s stint in the blue and white was a brief one, having come over in a deadline deal which saw a second round pick and a couple of log-jammed prospects head the other way. Given…

This Isn’t Pain: My Toronto Maple Leafs Fandom

“If you think there’s no pain coming, there’s pain coming” Like many of you, I’ve given a lot of thought to these words, spoken by Mike Babcock in the summer of 2015, shortly after he shocked the hockey world by leaving his post with the Detroit Red Wings to ink a massive deal in Toronto.

Five Times I Personally Found Brad Marchand Eating Trash

Tonight, the Toronto Maple Leafs head to Boston to kick off their first-round series against the Boston Bruins. In case you didn’t know, the Boston Bruins employ a human man named Brad Machand. At least, he allegedly claims that he’s a human man, and definitely not a rat who eats out of Boston’s finest trash…

LGD: The Devil’s Rejects

It’s game day! The Leafs continue their regular season farewell tour tonight in New Jersey. For the Leafs (48-25-7), a 50-win season is still realistically in sight, and is probably one of the only things worth playing for at this point. For the Devils, their playoff spot is all but secure, but a win tonight…
