Leafs weekly review: Making grown men cry

Record: 0-1-1 Two times in a week, the Leafs played at home and put themselves in a position to win, only to somehow throw it away late on. As much as I would like to sit here and blame it on Roman Polak like a lot of the Leafs fans do, I would point at…

Leafs weekly review x2: Inconsistent

I missed last weeks review because, well basically, I had a few festive beers over the Christmas period and decided that Bud fans across the world could wait an extra week to get a bigger review. The record 3-2-1 It has been an interesting two weeks to say the least, with the Buds winning three…

Leafs weekly wrap up: What a week to be a Leaf

The record 3-0-0 The Leafs enjoyed two home victories against Canadian rivals and one on the road against the reigning Stanley Cup champs. Beautiful.
