Monday Mailbag: Nylander=Yes; Leivo=No

You have to be happy about William Nylander being back, right? I mean, if the TLN Facebook page is an indication, that previous statement definitely isn’t true, but if you can’t find joy in William Nylander being a Leaf, I’d argue you can’t experience joy. Nylander has a lot of recency bias to make up…

Who’s Left and Who’s Leivo-ing?

With the arrival of William Nylander the Leafs have 24 NHL players and are only allowed 23. The immediate action taken was that Travis Dermott take an on paper only trip down the Marlies until things can all get sorted out. The reality is that come Tuesday night the Leafs want both Travis Dermott and…

WWYDW: Who Is Nylander Going to Deliver to the Marlies?

The Leafs have activated Auston Matthews from the Injured Reserve today which has put the Leafs back at the maximum 23 roster spots and moves Freddie Gauthier up to the press box to hang with Martin Marincin and Justin Holl. All of this is fine and really and no one is going to shed a…

Getting to Know Morgan Klimchuk

It’s always exciting to have a new face come into the Leafs organization. Well, exciting might be a stretch, but it’s always somewhat noteworthy, and that mild sense of noteworthiness comes from Morgan Klimchuk. The trade was 1 for 1. The Flames swapping their AHLer winger, who hasn’t produced as well this season compared to…

Monday Mailbag: Nylander Watch Week Begins

Closure. It’s coming this week. Closure is good. We get all move on with our lives, unless we don’t. Who knows. Let’s answer questions… is Nylander signing with the Leafs? — Bandwagon Leafs Fan (@hockeyphreak) November 26, 2018 I’d say it’s 50/50. He’s either going to or he isn’t. Let’s look at the Pros and…

Monday Mailbag: November Rain Edition

The Leafs won and that’s good. Auston Matthews hasn’t found a miracle shoulder cure and that’s bad. We’re still talking about the Nylander contract and that’s really bad. Your mailbag… Nylander?! — DJ Sinnimin (@djsinnimin) November 5, 2018 Thank you for being as open ended about this as possible, that should allow us to do…

Statistically, the D is Ass

Barely any of the season has been played, but we’ve probably seen enough of it to be very worried about the Leafs defense. In fact, I’ll go so far to say that pretty much all worries about the Leafs defense have rightfully been carried over from last season and supported by at least another decade…

Monday Mailbag: Injured Reserve Edition

I miss Auston already. The way he scored goals. The way he helped others score goals. The way his eyes would light up when he was endorsing a product. IT’S NOT FAIR DAMMIT! Anyway, it’s not a big deal. It’s the regular season and there are few things that matter less than the NHL regular…

Catching Up on the Leafs Prospects

Around these parts I’d like to think we do a pretty good job of keeping you up to date on the Marlies. I mean, not me personally. I don’t particularly care for watching the AHL, but there are a lot of plucky young bloggers here who are more than happy to give you the straight…

LGD: More Like The Lames

I mean, it’s the Flames after all. The Leafs still have John Tavares shooting on Mike Smith. Yes, Mike Smith of letting in 6 goals on 21 shots last week fame. No Matthews sucks the big one, but it also means exciting new line combos, so let’s take a looksie…. LW C RW ZACH HYMAN…

Should the Leafs Make Sam Gagner Official?

“No.” I mean, I think they should, but I just wanted to acknowledge the clever reply you just typed into twitter or facebook when you read the headline of this post. We can all agree that you are very funny, now please go away. Anyways, now to the post… Way back in the long ago…

Matthews Out for Four Weeks Minimum

It’s never a good sign when the coach immediately says that a player won’t be available for their next game in the media availability following the game in which a player was injured. So when Saturday night Mike Babcock said that Auston Matthews wouldn’t be playing tonight against Calgary, we were giving some time to…
