Top 20 Maple Leafs Prospects 2018: #17 Eemeli Räsänen

Intro This year’s rankings find Eemeli Räsänen in a slightly different position than at the start of the 2017-18 season; rather than gearing up as an OHL sophomore, now he’s headed to the KHL after signing a two-year deal with Jokerit. And instead of our number 10, he’s number 17–although that’s probably due more to…

Maybe Later: Kody Clark

Who is Kody Clark? If you saw his name and thought “hey, wonder if that’s Wendel Clark’s son”, then your instincts are spot on. While scouts seem to agree that Kody isn’t much like his dad, hockey still runs in the family. Kody grew up playing in Toronto, and obviously it would be really cool…

2017-18 Leafs Season in Review: Mitch Marner

It’s Mitch Marner’s turn! Which means it’s my turn, because I will never pass up an opportunity to talk about Mitch Marner. So here’s a quick look at Marner’s second year as a Toronto Maple Leaf (and his first as their leading scorer). Stats GP GOALS ASSISTS POINTS CORSI % (5V5) XGF% (5V5) 82 22…

LGD: Let’s Finish This

This is it. Game 7. Boston. We’ve been here before…but that doesn’t need to mean anything. The Leafs survived Game 5 in Boston, and if they come to play, they can do more than just survive Game 7. The last two games were do or die for the Buds–the only difference tonight is that it’s…

Somebody is gonna have to be the hero in Game 7…why not a Leaf?

To get the obvious point out of the way, the Game 7 hero should definitely be a Leaf. That being said, these are my suggestions: Option #1: Mitch Marner Mighty Marner!#StandWitness | #StanleyCup pic.twitter.com/Ry5S2kSPZl — Toronto Maple Leafs (@MapleLeafs) April 24, 2018 Why: He’s been the Leafs’ best player all series, he has a history…

Morning-after recap: Nothing really matters

Obviously no one wanted to lose to the Winnipeg Jets with one week left in the regular season, but on the other hand, who cares? The Leafs have already clinched (so have the Jets, whatever), and this is the time to get all the bugs out. The main downside of this loss is definitely the…

Postgame: Not the rematch we were hoping for

Remember the season-opener in Winnipeg, when the Leafs put up 7 on the Jets? Yeah, this was not that game. But, that being said, it’s worth mentioning that that game was actually a pretty good precursor of the Leafs’ 2017-18 season: goals came from Kadri (31), van Riemsdyk (36), Nylander (17), Marleau (25), Marner (22),…

LGD: Waddle Waddle

It’s game day, the Buds have won 10 of their last 12 games (going four for five on the road), and they’re on a five-game winning streak. Even after giving up 57 shots to the CBJs on Wednesday, the Leafs managed to come out on top, and now they’re in Pittsburgh looking for six in…

Morning-after recap: Saving the Best for Last

How nice is it to recap a win for a change? (Very nice.) The Leafs’ young guys got to be the heroes tonight (even with Rielly out), and we can only hope the third period is a sign of what’s to come, because it was awesome. 1-0 Leafs! (Zach Hyman goal) .@ZachHyman gets the @MapleLeafs…
