Toronto Maple Leafs Have 3 Former 1st Overall Picks on Their Roster

The Toronto Maple Leafs now have three top picks on their roster. After the Toronto Maple Leafs signed Joe Thornton to a one year contract, it gave the team three players that were selected first overall, to go along with Auston Matthews and John Tavares. Thornton was selected first overall back in 1997 and 12 […] Toronto Maple Leafs Have 3 Former 1st Overall Picks on Their Roster - Editor In Leaf - Editor In Leaf - A Toronto Maple Leafs Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

Toronto Maple Leafs: Joe Thornton or Patrick Marleau?

Which veteran free agent add is a better fit for the Toronto Maple Leafs? The Toronto Maple Leafs were in need of a veteran to help lead a relatively young team as they hope to win a playoff series and hoist the Stanley Cup for the first time since 1967. While captain John Tavares is […] Toronto Maple Leafs: Joe Thornton or Patrick Marleau? - Editor In Leaf - Editor In Leaf - A Toronto Maple Leafs Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

Dave Feschuk: The Maple Leafs put John Tavares ahead of team-building two years ago, and they’ve been paying ever since

The signing started a series of dominoes that has left the club struggling with the salary cap as it makes roster moves.

SIMMONS: Wayne Simmonds should help Leafs power play, even if he's not on it

At his best, and at a different time in history, Wayne Simmonds accomplished something that the core four of the Maple Leafs — Auston Matthews, John Tavares, Mitch Marner and William Nylander — have yet to match in their careers. Simmonds, in 2017, scored 16 power-play goals for Philadelphia, 15 and 14 in seasons before that one. None of the big four have equalled those numbers. Over the past 10 seasons,...

Toronto Maple Leafs: Looks Like Alex Pietrangelo Will Hit Free Agency

The Toronto Maple Leafs are anticipating a big day tomorrow as the NHL Free Agent period opens up. The Toronto Maple Leafs – and one assumes – many other teams will have their sites set on the biggest name on the market, Alex Pietrangelo, the captain of the St. Louis Blues. After John Tavares (you […] Toronto Maple Leafs: Looks Like Alex Pietrangelo Will Hit Free Agency - Editor In Leaf - Editor In Leaf - A Toronto Maple Leafs Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

Maple Leafs hope new assistant Malhotra lights up power play

On paper, the Maple Leafs had a respectable regular-season power play, tied for fifth with Stanley Cup champion Tampa Bay at 23.1%. But it wasn’t as dominant a force as advertised, despite boasting Auston Matthews, Mitch Marner, John Tavares and William Nylander in starring roles. The unit’s overall lack of success certainly haunted them in the Columbus series with a 2-for-13 showing. ...

Toronto Maple Leafs: The Criticism Of John Tavares Is Unjust

Steve Simmons of the Toronto Sun called out John Tavares earlier this week and his criticism of the Toronto Maple Leafs captain is completely unjust. The fact that we’re having a conversation about the Toronto Maple Leafs captain John Tavares being overpaid and washed up is ridiculous in the first place.

SIMMONS: An ordinary John Tavares in the playoffs isn't what the Maple Leafs are paying for

The elephant in the Maple Leafs room is the captain with the giant-sized contract that isn’t going away. And it makes for uncomfortable conversation — especially now with money so tight and the Leafs with so many needs. It seemed like such a good idea at the time, signing John Tavares as a free agent, building your team around one of hockey’s better, more consistent players, who was finally freed from...

With Maple Leafs core set, prospects will try to skate way into meaningful jobs

Here’s what we can assume about the Maple Leafs. The core of the club — Auston Matthews, Mitch Marner, John Tavares, William Nylander, Morgan Rielly and Jake Muzzin — isn’t bound to change much in the coming seasons (unless, of course, general manager Kyle Dubas can find a way to add Alex Pietrangelo). Of that group,...
