Freddie Hasn’t Been Freddie

If there was one thing made abundantly clear over the past two seasons, it’s this: as Freddie Andersen goes, so do the Maple Leafs. Through the first four games of Toronto’s opening-round series against the Bruins, he has not gone well, and neither have things for the Leafs who find themselves mired in a 3-1…

The NHL announced today that our very own #34 has topped the NHL’s best selling jersey list for the 2017-18 season, or at least those purchased through Shop.NHL.com, NHLShop.ca and Fanatics.com. Here’s the…

What’s your biggest gripe with the Leafs this series?

The Leafs are down 3-1. This sucks. We’re complaining about it. We asked our staff: what’s your biggest gripe with the team this series? Scott Maxwell My biggest gripe with this team was their play in the first two games in Boston. They had never played that bad all season, and to suddenly play like…

LGD: Don’t get mad, get even

Well, we’re finally here. Game Four of the Leafs’ first round series against the Boston Bruins goes tonight, with the mission alarmingly simple: go out and get the W. With the Leafs having dropped the first two games of the series before storming back for a 4-2 victory in Game 3, their clearest path to…

There’s now a Polish rap song about Auston Matthews (VIDEO)

The content you didn’t know you needed, but you’ll welcome anyway. We all remember the song “Auston Matthews” by SVDVM, but now it looks like Auston’s musical influence has gone international. Earlier this week, the Polish rapper SEPT. dropped a track called… “Auston Matthews”. If you don’t speak Polish, have no fear! SEPT. was nice enough…

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. After a very poor showing in Boston, the Leafs went home with a chip on their shoulder, and had a much better performance in the six….

WWYDW: Apparently Dougie Hamilton is on the block

If there’s one thing this series against the Boston Bruins has indicated, it’s that the Toronto Maple Leafs need to upgrade their blueline. No, it doesn’t mean they need to trip over themselves to package all of Auston Matthews, William Nylander, and Mitch Marner in a deal for Adam Larsson, but they do need to…

Joe Thornton is looking like a great match for the Leafs

A couple weeks ago, I threw myself into the fire by saying that the Leafs and John Tavares, despite the fact that it seems like destiny, simply aren’t a match. I got sewered online for it, then asked good twitter dude Totally Offside! to consolidate how wrong I was into an article so everybody could…

Jack Edwards Needs to STFU

I guess we’ve got to talk about Jack Edwards. No we really shouldn’t, it should be established that this guy is gross, but with the Leafs not playing until Thursday we probably owe you some content that isn’t just us begging for Komarov to stay out of the lineup.
