Leafs Postgame: We Willy Rock You Like a Hurricane

The Leafs entered the game on a bit of a skid, with a two game losing streak, and a rough loss to Boston. But, the Leafs turned it around quickly, and didn’t slow down, as they went away with a 4-1 win. 1st Period Unlike the last time the Leafs played in Carolina, the Leafs…

The MLCU: Part 2 – The Snap

About a year ago, I wrote an article to vent my excitement for Avengers: Infinity War by comparing all of the Avengers to Leafs players. Having recently watched the movie again, and also passing the anniversary for the article (oh, and the Avengers: Endgame trailer being released), I decided to add another installment in the…

Leafs Sign Nylander… For Real This Time

After a looooooooooooong five months, the Leafs finally extended William Nylander to a contract. Told Nylander is staying. Done deal 6 yrs. — Darren Dreger (@DarrenDreger) December 1, 2018 That’s right, the pain is over. Our Swedish son has returned. After dealing with clickbait headlines about how Nylander is selfish or wants a trade, he…

Monday Mailbag: Still Talking About William Edition

It’s yet another week of the William Nylander holdout, which means that it’s another week of terrible trade rumours and anxiety. Also, another week of questions about Nylander (and other topics).

Leafs Postgame: California Sweeping

The Leafs face one of their former coaches, as well as the star player that they could’ve picked in the 2014 draft in Nick Ritchie tonight, as they look to do something they haven’t done since 1995 – sweep the California road trip. It’s a back-to-back, but hey, if I can write both of the…

The no sleep squad is back, as the Leafs play game 2 of the California road trip, against the only good team on this trip, the San Jose Sharks. The Sharks have had a history of dominance against the Leafs, and it seems like every game is either the Leafs getting outshot but the game…

Monday Mailbag: California Edition

It’s time to overreact to one (1) loss to the Bruins, just in time for the Leafs to head on their California road trip! This should be fun! Is Morgan Rielly destined for the Norris & Captaincy — Matt Beaudin 🌐 (@Matt_beaudin) November 12, 2018 In terms of the Norris discussion, I assumed that his…

Leafs Postgame: Buck the Fruins

After nearly seven months, the Leafs finally have their shot at redemption against the Bruins for their playoff series. But, just like that first round matchup, the Bruins top line overwhelmed, the weak links on the blueline reminded us that they were the weak links, and the goaltending wasn’t exactly ideal. Just great. 1st Period…

Leafs Postgame: Playing Like Hall of Famers

The Leafs had a pretty solid night, you could say. They managed to light the Devils up for a whopping six goals, on Hall of Fame night no less. So, let’s make this quick. It’s Friday night, I got places to be, you got places to be, so lets talk about some goals. First, we…

WWYDW Friday Edition: Garret Sparks Playing Time

We are now 15 games into the season, and despite hopes in the offseason that Babcock might stray from the status quo, we have seen Freddy play 13 games, and Sparks has only been in two. One of these games was because of a back to back, and the other was because Freddy was hurt….

Why are the Leafs better on the road than at home?

Home advantage. It’s something that you’ve probably had drilled into your head since you started playing sports. Whether it’s baseball, football, hockey, or any other sport, there’s always been this comforting mentality of playing at home, with your friends, family, and fans watching you, and cheering you on. It’s that kind of edge that teams…
