With the 25th Overall Pick, the Leafs select… Dominik Bokk?

Who is Dominik Bokk? A German winger who spent this past season playing in Sweden with the Vaxjo Lakers organization, Bokk is a highly-skilled forward who certainly looks to have top-six NHL potential. He’s creative and likes to dazzle the crowd with the puck on his stick, and he’s a very good skater. He’s got…

WE GOT THE (CALDER) CUP!

Marlies win! Andreas Johnsson wins the Butterfield Trophy despite missing the first two rounds of the playoffs! Marlies should have had a shutout but in fact Texas received a pity goal from the officials! Luckily, the Marlies were better than the refs and put together a dominant performance in the AHL’s first Game 7 in…

With the 25th Overall Pick, the Toronto Maple Leafs Select… Bode Wilde?

Who Is Bode Wilde? Probably nobody you need to immediately worry about — it’s not super likely that he’s still on the board when Pick 25 rolls around. Still, that’s what we all said about Liljegren last year, and somehow it happened. Also, Corey Pronman says there are “off ice and conditioning issues” that, while…

2017-18 Leafs Season in Review: Connor Brown

It’s time for us to discuss the greatest Connor to ever come out of the Erie Otters organization: Yes, that’s right. Let’s talk about Downtown Connor Brown. Brown can best be characterized as steady and dependable with a flash of offensive upside — we saw that last year in his first full year in the…

2017-18 Leafs Season in Review: Andreas Johnsson

It feels disingenuous to call this a “Season in Review” for Andreas Johnsson, who joined the Leafs late in the season and played nine regular season games, then six more in the postseason. Instead let’s call it a “Tryout in Review,” because that’s really what this season was for him. Johnsson was stellar for the…

Morning-after recap: Last night wasn’t the worst

If you missed last night’s game, well. In some ways, you didn’t miss anything — the Leafs ultimately walked away with a shootout loss and one point in the standings. Still, it was a good hockey game. These were two good hockey teams who may play each other in the postseason, fresh off the trade…

Leafs Postgame: Kill shootouts with fire

If the Leafs plan to like, go for it, it’s likely they have to go through Tampa Bay. So like, playoffs are gonna be stressful. The Corsis The Leafs looked good for the first two periods! Eye test more or less matched up from what I saw. The Bolts made a push in the third, but…

LGD: Down With Torts, Etc.

Friends, it’s a good time to be a Leafs fan. Babcock is rolling four scoring lines — okay, fine, three scoring lines and Kasperi Kapanen — and it’s the era of Travis Dermott, who stepped up admirably in the Leafs’ time of need and has managed to stick in the lineup. As the trade deadline…

Morning-after recap: Still thinking about Jake’s stretch pass

HELLO. Last night’s helter-skelter whirlwind of a game is behind us, and I’m honestly still hype about some of those goals. (Mostly the second Willy goal, but I don’t want to get ahead of myself here.) Here’s the goal-by-goal recap of whatever last night was. May we witness more fun like that soon, and may…

Leafs Postgame: What just happened

Before we get started… Wanted to let you know Roman Polak has played 666 games. Anyway, we had ourselves a barn-burner tonight! Not sure that either coach will be thrilled with how fast and loose this game was, but from a fan perspective, this was a damn fun game. One thing probably weighing on the…

LGD: Show Tavares What He’s Missing

After a brief respite from Leafs hockey for the All-Star Break, we’re finally back at it. Tonight the Leafs take on the Islanders, who played (and lost) last night against the Panthers. I’m inclined to be optimistic about this one, folks — especially since the Leafs should be (in theory) rested, refreshed, and ready to…

LGD: Stop the Klingberg

Howdy! It’s Game Day in Dallas, the weather is beautiful, and your Leafs are on the second game of a back-to-back against a surging Stars team with Curtis McElhinney (bless him) in net.
