Freddy Hurt, McAdam Called Up As Emergency Backup

FREDDY’S INJURED AGAIN, EVERYBODY PANIC!!! Okay, it’s probably not that bad, but there’s some cause for concern. The @MapleLeafs announced today that the club has recalled goaltender Eamon McAdam from the @NLGrowlers (ECHL) on an emergency basis. Frederik Andersen is listed as day-to-day with a knee injury. — Leafs PR (@LeafsPR) October 15, 2018 While…

Know Your Enemy: Breaking Down Auston Matthews’ Hot Start

In case you haven’t heard yet, Auston Matthews has been pretty good early on in the 2018-19 season. He’s leading the league in scoring, and has a whopping nine goals in five games, which is something that only four other players have reached: Alex Ovechkin, Patrick Marleau, Mario Lemieux, and Mike Bossy. That’s certainly not…

Know Your Enemy: The Ballad of Connor Carrick

Fun fact: I was supposed to write Connor Carrick’s preseason preview article, and the day I was going to, this happened: Connor Carrick to DAL. — Bob McKenzie (@TSNBobMcKenzie) October 1, 2018 Didn’t think I’d be writing about him a week later though. Maybe writing about Connor Carrick is my calling. You wouldn’t have to…

Leafs Postgame: What the Actual Hell Was That?

Ok, so, a lot of stuff happened there. Like, lots of stuff. So, let’s get right to it then. I missed most of the first period, and by the sounds of it, it was a good thing that I did. The Leafs tested Sparks well in the early going, by letting the Blackhawks walk all…

Leafs Postgame: Leafs Season Officially Over as Sens win 5-3

Fire Dubas. Trade Gardiner. Buyout Tavares. Nylander was invisible, trade him for Erik Gudbranson. Wait, you mean to tell me that single game samples can be fluky, and sometimes good teams can lose to bad teams solely on luck? Oh, in that case, calm down, it’s only game 2 of 82. Unlike Wednesday, the Leafs…

Know Your Enemy: Buying High, Selling Low

It seems insane to think that just 17 months ago, the Senators were one goal away from the Stanley Cup Finals. Since then, they’ve divebombed to the fourth overall pick, lost their franchise player, and it seemed like every other week, they were making headlines for some internal problem. You probably didn’t need me to…

Preseason Player Previews: Morgan Rielly

As we’re about to head into the season, it’s time to take a look at the Leafs’ resident “great offensively, terrible defensively” defenseman. No, it’s not Jake Gardiner. In fact, we’re talking about Morgan Rielly, who, despite the reputation, is mediocre at best when it comes to defending in his own zone. He’s excellent with…

Know Your Enemy: Death by a Thousand Stabs

To say that the Montreal Canadiens are a bit of a mess is an understatement. Ever since the missed the playoffs in 2015-16, and traded PK Subban as a response to that season, this team has been nothing short of a disaster. As bad as Marc Bergevin has been, it hasn’t always been this bad…

Who’s Better: Mitch Marner or William Nylander?

Stop it. Stop. It. We don’t need to have this debate. There doesn’t have to be some definitive list of ranking all the Leafs. They’re similar players with their own unique things that make special in their own way. We have both of them, just appreciate them while we have them here. Stop. It.

Preseason Postgame: Semyon Der-Areyoukiddingmewithalltheseplays

The Leafs played their first preseason game on home ice, and with that, we saw the debut of a face of the franchise for years to come. That’s right, Semyon Der-Arguchintsev made his debut at the Scotiabank Arena (which also made it’s Leafs debut as well). But holy goals Batman, it was a hectic one,…
