The Leafs are in the midst of their traditional mid-to-end-of-season collapse and it’s a surprise to exactly no one. Oh, you’re surprised? Were you also surprised that the sun came up this morning? Because baby, this is like clockwork for the Leafs. Looking at the team on paper coming into the season you figured they had to have a chance to be better than they were last season, perhaps even avoid the slump they’re in right now. Yeah, not so much, eh? Well, despite their perennial struggles you can’t lose hope yet and jettison James van Riemsdyk, LW (1 G, 8 SOG, +1), Tyler Bozak, C (1 A, 3 SOG, +1) or Phil Kessel, RW (zip, zilch, nada) for pennies on the dollar, because the upside is

Morgan Rielly is on his way to being a huge star (Tom Szczerbowski-USA TODAY Sports) The Maple Leafs have inspired many theories about why they are so bad, but they all complicate things way too much. The Leafs are a bad team because they have one quality top-three NHL centre and a no elite “number-one” defenseman. It’s a classic case of people searching too deeply for an answer and missing the most obvious. Going into the season, there was hope that the additions of toughness in the form of Roman Polak and Stephane Robidas would, along with the continued development of Morgan Rielly and Jake Gardiner, give the Leafs a formidable blue line. Instead, the blue-line has been

The Maple Leafs haven't played many home games in January and with the way they're dropping in the standings that's probably a good thing.

The head coach of the Arizona Coyotes will soon be the husband of a reality television star, but don’t expect him to be the one programming the PVR and firing up the Jiffy Pop to celebrate the premiere of Hockey Wives. Just because Dave Tippett’s wife Wendy has a role on the upcoming W Network program, which debuts March 18, doesn’t mean he will be making a cameo. “I have nothing to do with that. Zero. My wife was involved because a couple of friends asked her to be involved,” Tippet told Sportsnet Thursday in Toronto in advance of his team’s game against the Maple Leafs. Then the 2010 Jack Adams Award winner and the winningest coach in franchise history, drilled the point ho

The Leafs head home for part 2 of a back to back, hoping for a more exciting game. Wow, last nights game eh? So that was something.. Okay, I didn't watch it, but I told you I wouldn't, and if you did, I'm sorry you make bad choices. Though I hear Rielly had one great shift in OT. Tonight the Maple Leafs host the Coyotes, after travelling home from New Jersey with a loser point and not much to be proud of.  Both the Coyotes and the Leafs are on losing streaks, Arizona sits at 2-6-2 in their past 10, while the Leafs have a record of...1-8-1...are you fucking kidding me? Well, someone has to win tonight, unless the power goes out in the 2nd period and they postpone the rest of the game.
