Toronto Maple Leafs: Tyson Barrie’s Post-Babcock Norris-Worthy Season

The Toronto Maple Leafs signed T.J Brodie this summer to replace the outgoing Tyson Barrie. This was a move the Toronto Maple Leafs probably felt that they had to make.  Barrie is a bad defensive player, and while he more than makes up for it with offense, given the make-up of the Leafs, you can […] Toronto Maple Leafs: Tyson Barrie’s Post-Babcock Norris-Worthy Season - Editor In Leaf - Editor In Leaf - A Toronto Maple Leafs Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

Toronto Maple Leafs Opening Night Defensive Pairings

The Toronto Maple Leafs have one of the NHL’s deepest teams. Because they are so deep, and because the lineup options are nearly limitless, it is fun to come up with various lineup  scenarios – well at least for me.  Yesterday we talked forwards,  and I suggested that the Leafs copy the Bruins and run […] Toronto Maple Leafs Opening Night Defensive Pairings - Editor In Leaf - Editor In Leaf - A Toronto Maple Leafs Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

There Is No Room for Zdeno Chara on the Toronto Maple Leafs

Zdeno Chara would be an Awesome Addition to the Toronto Maple Leafs but there is no space for him Surprisingly, Zdeno Chara is still available on the free agent market. You’d think that someone who’s given his all to the Boston Bruins, would be off the market by his longtime team by now. Of course […] There Is No Room for Zdeno Chara on the Toronto Maple Leafs - Editor In Leaf - Editor In Leaf - A Toronto Maple Leafs Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

Toronto Maple Leafs Opening Night Lines and Roster (Forwards)

The Toronto Maple Leafs have an incredible amount of depth.

Toronto Maple Leafs: Canceled Games from Matthews Prime So Typical

The Toronto Maple Leafs will (I assume) eventually play a game, though when that is is anyone’s guess. The Toronto Maple Leafs have been a bit unlucky, over the years.  I don’t want to say “cursed” because that’s a bit much, but you do have to wonder.  50 years without winning? Seems they’d win by […] Toronto Maple Leafs: Canceled Games from Matthews Prime So Typical - Editor In Leaf - Editor In Leaf - A Toronto Maple Leafs Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

Toronto Maple Leafs: Goodbye Yellow Brick Goat

The Toronto Maple Leafs made many off-season moves, but one kind of went under the radar. Prior to the NHL Free Agency Period, the Toronto Maple Leafs chose not to issue a qualifying offer to veteran centre Frederik Gauthier.

Toronto Maple Leafs Depth Chart: Part One – Goaltending

Toronto Maple Leafs: Mike Babcock Fired One Year Ago Today

The Toronto Maple Leafs fired Mike Babcock one year ago today, which kick-started Kyle Dubas’ vision.

Toronto Maple Leafs: Mikko Lehtonen Opts Out of KHL Contract

The Toronto Maple Leafs signed Mikko Lehtonen to one-year deal in the the first part of the off-season.

Could Zdeno Chara Sign with the Toronto Maple Leafs?

Zdeno Chara has been linked to the Toronto Maple Leafs but does it make sense for the team to sign the veteran?
