Training Camp + NHL News

The Leafs open training camp today, but a couple of players won’t be there due to injury: This could leave a couple of spots open on the roster come opening night. Presumably for hopefuls and/or players that have been signed to PTOs (Zach-Aston Reese, Nick Robertson etc) to crack the opening day lineup. It could … Read more

On The Bright Side….

I’m tired of reading idiotic, over-the-top proclamations on Twitter and making fun of it, but I’m also tired of being so damn negative, so, instead, I’m going to join the “It’s Always Sunny In Leaf Nation” crowd and point out a few good things about this team that aren’t insanely out to lunch: Goaltending Yeah, … Read more

Link Dump

First, some good news: I’m cheering for Amirov. It doesn’t matter if you ever liked the pick or not, all that matters is that you never want to see a young man’s dream of playing in the NHL get derailed by a brain tumor. It’s hard not to want to see this kid succeed. This … Read more

For this reason I’m not even going to bother to write up any more draft profiles. It actually seems a little … Read more

The Road Ahead Pt 1: NHL Entry Draft

Congratulations to former Toronto Maple Leaf, Nazem Kadri, on winning the Stanley Cup last night. An even bigger congratulations to Alex Newhook, who will bring the Cup to Newfoundland for another tour. It’s been a few years since the trophy of all trophies landed on The Rock, so it’ll be nice to see it happen … Read more
