On July 1, 2018, the Toronto Maple Leafs made the biggest splash in free agency for the first time in years. An improving team with a promising young core, they grabbed the big fish of the free agency class from that year, signing hometown boy John Tavares to a seven-year contract with an average annual value (AAV) of $11 million.

There isn’t a whole lot going on with the Leafs at the moment, so it seems like a good time to take a break from attempting premature analysis and shifting to other topics. It’s time to change the goal song I say this as someone who initially embraced the Hall and Oates era in Toronto, thought it was the best attempt in a long time at this team having fun, and felt it filtered out to element of fans that take sports way too seriously. That said, keeping your goal song is for winners and the

Will 2022-23 be Nick Robertson’s breakout season? There’s a chance. What the Toronto Maple Leafs’ coaching staff needs to do is to find Robertson the right fit.

They come from all kinds of different leagues, levels and teams. Each position demands different kinds of play. Performances can vary depending on ice time or health. Global pandemics wipe out entire seasons for some. It’s difficult to really project a prospect and how good they may become if all goes well (and it seldom does) compared

The replay of the WJC is getting attention for not getting attention. While I find it a little too pat an answer to say that attendance is down just because everyone noticed that junior hockey has a sexual assault problem, it’s likely part of the reason the stands are also empty. But it is August. That has to be part of the

The Toronto Maple Leafs have some of the best winger depth in all of hockey. The Toronto Maple Leafs finished 4th overall and have an excellent roster, but their main strength comes from their wingers who are among the best in the NHL. Along with Mitch Marner and William Nylander, the Leafs have Michael Bunting […] Toronto Maple Leafs: Elite Winger Depth Will Be Key to Success - Editor In Leaf - Editor In Leaf - A Toronto Maple Leafs Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

TLN Prospect #5: Fraser Minten brings potential and projectability to the Leafs

Ahead of the draft, I was of the belief that the Leafs should be targeting more NHL projectability with their early picks rather than just swinging on higher upside prospects who provided less certainty in their overall projections. Last year’s selection of Matt Knies in the second round – a player with a relatively safe floor who still possessed some offensive upside – was a step in that direction, and the early returns have certainly exceeded expectations. The Leafs went in a similar di

It’s been an interesting day at the World Juniors. Nothing more shocking than Latvia pulling off an upset over Czechia, but from a Leafs perspective there was another multi-point game from Roni Hirvonen this afternoon for Finland, and Topi Niemela also found the scoresheet. I’ll have much more of them throughout the remainder of the tournament, I promise. The night cap game features Matthew Knies facing Team USA’s toughest competition of the tournament so far against Sweden. Again on a li

They don’t make a lot of noise about themselves, but Maple Leafs defensemen Morgan Rielly and T.J. Brodie were the most important parts of Toronto’s defense corps last season, and they will continue to be crucial components this coming year.
