Top 10 Players Who Deserve A Stanley Cup

This is one of those rare occasions where a team that you don’t cheer for wins a Cup, and you’re really happy about it. Just seeing Ovechkin and Backstrom hoist the Cup together drew a few tears into my eyes, and I barely root for the Capitals. So, I got into the giving spirit, and…

Monday Mailbag: Finals Edition

Well, they said that the Leafs would need to win the Cup for hell to freeze over, but we still got hell frozen over, but instead because of one of the most unlikely Stanley Cup Finals ever: Washington vs. an expansion team. I don’t know what hockey is anymore, but let me answer your questions…

What the Leafs Can Learn From the Vegas Golden Knights

Well, wasn’t that a fun trip? A hectic first round matchup against their demons in the Boston Bruins, the Leafs ended up on the wrong side of the playoff bracket, and see themselves participating in the rest of the playoffs from their living rooms.

Thoughts on Game 3: Goaltending, Plekanec, and Matthews

Hey, remember when Auston Matthews was a terrible leader, Babcock should be fired, and the Bruins were this unstoppable behemoth and would easily sweep the Leafs. Yeah, me neither.

It’s the end of the world in Leaf land, and yet, the mailman still has to do his job. Let’s get right to it with this week’s  mailbag.
