Preseason LGD: Jack Eichel is a piece of garbage

Guess what! There’s Leafs hockey on a Saturday night! Unfortunately, they’re still playing Buffalo. Jack Eichel is a piece of garbage. Here’s how the Leafs likely lineup, as they’re missing a few big names, such as Marner, Tavares, Nylander, and… Semyon Der-Arguchintsev. Jack Eichel is a piece of garbage. Leafs lines at practice(likely playing tomorrow @ BUF)…

Remembering THAT Leafs moment: #TeamUnit

In awe at the size of Team Unit. Do you guys remember the short-lived clothing line / whatever else it was by the name of Team Unit? If you don’t, you weren’t missing much. Back in 2011, some Leafs/Jays/Marketing executives decided to come together and offer a brand of clothing that was essentially knockoff shirseys…

Can you name the 30 NHL teams who do not have John Tavares? Test yourself

Test yourself Today, we’ve discovered another great Sporcle quiz: Asking you if you can name the NHL teams that John Tavares does not…

Senators associate coach Marc Crawford admits he cheers for the Leafs

There’s two types of people in the world. Leafs fans, and liars. To no one’s surprise, one of the Senators organization outed himself as a big Auston Matthews fan,  and by extension, the Leafs. In an interview with John Matisz for TheScore, Crawford admitted that while Matthews was playing against his own Senators in his first…

Our staff’s Conference Finals picks

This is honestly a pretty nice Conference Final, all things considered. I mean, Boston didn’t get past Tampa Bay, which is great. Washington finally got past Pittsburgh, which is great, though I can always enjoy Phil! winning a Stanley Cup. Vegas is a hell of a team to watch and Winnipeg being this far in…

Mailbag: Peace out, Boston

Good afternoon. The Boston Bruins have been eliminated from the playoffs. Does that make you feel better? Worse? Think any free agent D-men like Jack Johnson, Sustr, de Haan, Hickey would be targets at the right price? — Ryan Golubski (@freddy2toes) May 7, 2018 In a way too simplistic analysis, no x4.

Monday Mailbag: Anything but Lou out edition

Lou Lamoriello’s out as Leafs GM! No one asked about it though, probably because we sent out our call for questions before that news broke. So here’s some rambling on some other stuff that really doesn’t matter too much. Which Marlies player besides Derm and Johnny do we see in the nhl for an extended…

Tonight is not a time for moral victories

Even if you predicted the Leafs would win the series, even if you predicted the Leafs and Bruins would be playing seven, there’s probably not a likelihood that you predicted it to go down like this.  There’s the obvious eerie parallels with the Leafs-Bruins series from 2013. After falling behind 3-1, the Leafs won consecutive…

LGD: Let’s force a seventh

A year ago today, the Toronto Maple Leafs had the chance to force a Game 7 against the Washington Capitals. Despite one highlight-reel goal from Auston Matthews, the Leafs were unable to force that seventh winner-take-all game. Today, they get a second chance in their second consecutive do-or-die matchup. Leafs lines (Via DailyFaceoff.com) LW C…
