Leafs-Islanders Preview



The Leafs three game road trip takes them into Long Island tonight and into Ottawa tomorrow against teams that have started their respective seasons with 4-1 records.

The Islanders might arguably be the best club the Leafs will have faced this season with Jaroslav Halak, Johnny Boychuk and John Tavares providing balance from back through the front of the lineup.

The Islanders have gone 5-2-1 in their last 8 games against the Leafs and began this season at 4-0 for the first time in franchise history.

Stopping Tavares will be a key for […]

Motown Preview


The Leafs and Wings close out their home-and-home series tonight in Detroit with expectations high following Toronto’s 4-1 setback Friday night.

The Leafs focus this evening will deal with handling the Red Wings’ back pressure.

Detroit continually limited Toronto’s time and space with the puck last night and Henrik Zetterberg made them pay.
Zetterberg became the the first Wing to record four assists in a game against the Leafs since Brendan Shanahan accomplished the feat.

The Leafs convened for dry land exercises this morning at their downtown team hotel before refining a game plan […]

Thrown For A Lupe


There’s little margin for error in the Toronto Maple Leafs’ quest for an elusive playoff spot.

Health is wealth so there is certainly concern over the well being of 2nd line winger Joffrey Lupul.

The 22 goal scorer last season did not participate with the main group at practice Thursday.

The club announced that Lupul was dealing with a lower body ailment, would be assessed later in the day and his status for Friday’s game would be determined then.

Lupul’s absence saw Brandon Kozun bumped to the 2nd line while Matt Frattin, Carter Ashton […]

Manhattan Project


The Toronto Maple Leafs checked into New York City in the early hours Sunday following their 5-2 loss to the Pittsburgh Penguins at Air Canada Centre.

There would be no morning skate just a dryland session at the team hotel with strength coach Anthony Belza.

Two sub-par efforts on home ice hasn’t sat well with the Leafs as they enter a proverbial hornets nest in the Rangers’ home opener at Madison Square Garden.

The Leafs gave up three power play goals against the Penguins and have scored just two even strength goals in […]

Panik And Pens Prep


The Leafs finalized preparations for Pittsburgh’s arrival on Saturday with a 90 minute practice Friday and with a new look on the right side.
Just a day after being claimed on waivers from Tampa, Richard Panik took a regular shift on the 4th line alongside Peter Holland and Daniel Winnik.

Although Randy Carlyle wouldn’t confirm Panik’s participation in Saturday’s lineup, it does look like Matt Frattin could be a healthy scratch against Pittsburgh.

Panik wore number 18 in practice on Friday, the same number worn by another Slovak and current Leaf scout Peter Ihnacak […]

A Not So Off Day


There’s never a dull moment in the ebb and flow activities of the Toronto Maple Leafs even on an off day following Wednesday’s 4-3 loss to Montreal.

The team spent Thursday morning in the gym undergoing a dry land workout while Cody Franson, Josh Leivo and Carter Ashton skated on their own.

Leivo was subsequently sent back to the Toronto Marlies along with Troy Bodie while Ashton still remains with the big club.

The Leafs then announced that they’d acquired right winger Richard Panik off waivers from the Tampa Lightning.

The 6-2, 200 lbs […]

Let The Games Begin


The Toronto Maple Leafs were put through their paces Tuesday in a final preparation for Wednesday’s season opener against visiting Montreal.
It was a high-tempo skate with an emphasis placed on special teams and neutral zone coverage.

The ability to dominate the centre line and force opposing teams to dump the puck rather than carry it into the Leafs’ end will go a long way toward improving D-zone efficiency.

Tuesday’s lines and pairings were identical to Monday’s practice meaning two players will make their NHL debuts against Montreal.

Brandon Kozun and Stuart Percy are […]

Leaf Roster Takes Shape


The Toronto Maple Leafs pared down their roster Monday in anticipation of Wednesday’s opener against the visiting Montreal Canadiens.

The final cuts provided a mission statement of where the organization is headed compared to where its been the past few seasons.

Colton Orr and Frazer McLaren were placed on waivers for the purpose of being sent down to the Toronto Marlies.

This season’s Maple Leafs will place a greater emphasis on all four lines contributing.

That wasn’t the case last season as the top two lines struggled in March with fatigue a factor in […]

Henny’s Collingwood Reflections


Joffrey Lupul greets fans in Collingwood after practise. The town were terrific hosts. #tmltalk

— Paul Hendrick (@HennyTweets) October 2, 2014

The Toronto Maple Leafs are back home after three days of bonding in Collingwood.

Mayor Sandra Cooper officially welcomed head coach Randy Carlyle after Thursday’s skate and the Leaf bench boss appeared right at home in a political role alongside her worship.

Leaf lines and pairings offered a glimpse of what we might see come opening night on Wednesday, October 8th.

Stephane Robidas took a regular shift alongside Dion Phaneuf while William Nylander […]
