reimer488feb20

There was some good news during Wednesday’s optional Leafs practice at MasterCard Centre as James Reimer and Joffrey Lupul both skated with their teammates.

It was Reimer’s first time on the ice since suffering his knee injury last Monday against Philadelphia.

Leafs TV was there and we have some video of Reimer doing some work with goalie coach Rick St. Croix.

Lupul continues to recover from his broken arm and he no longer is wearing a cast but he is still unsure of a return to the lineup. Check out the video of Lupul going through ...

Leafs need to consider JVR in the middle.

James van Riemsdyk is inexperienced in the face-off circle but his installation at centre between Phil Kessel and Joffrey Lupul would have a healthy impact on the Leafs.

James van Riemsdyk is inexperienced in the face-off circle but his installation at centre between Phil Kessel and Joffrey Lupul would help the Leafs.

Joffrey Lupul is midway through his projected six-week recovery from a broken arm. That means the question of who will man the Leafs top line will only grow in importance.

Those conversations need to centre on James van Riemsdyk, specifically moving him to the middle of the number-one unit upon Lupul’s return.

Aside from the excellent play of James Reimer the dominant conclusion of the early season is ...

Leafs Look Ahead To Senators

carlyle400feb15

The Maple Leafs were back at practice Friday as they get set to face the Ottawa Senators Saturday at the ACC.

A day after not skating in Carolina, Carl Gunnarsson practiced with the Leafs as he continues to recover from a hip ailment.

Head coach Randy Carlyle shuffled two of the lines as he reunited Jay McClement with Mikhail Grabovski and Nikolai Kulemin. That shifted Leo Komarov to a line with Clarke MacArthur and Nazem Kadri.

Here is how the rest of the lines looked:

van Riemsdyk-Bozak-Kessel
McClement-Grabovski-Kulemin
MacArthur-Kadri-Komarov
Orr-Steckel-Brown/McLaren

What the Reimer injury says about the Leafs

scrivens400feb12

It’s true. You don’t know what you’ve got until it’s gone.

 Even if it’s gone short-term.

 Which brings us back to James Reimer, out for at least a week with a knee sprained in the Leafs 5-2 win over Philadelphia.

 “Ah,” you say. “What if it’s longer?”

Even if Reimer’s injury keeps him out for months instead of weeks the Leafs will likely still sit on their hands.

 That would mean no deal for Roberto Luongo, no attempt to coax Tim Thomas out of his unfathomable retirement.

 Reimer’s knee provides a fine benchmark to examine how ...

The ethical wasteland that is the facewash.

If you think this is okay, you can

If you think this is okay, you can’t really talk about facewashing protocol.

Okay, this is not an anti-fighting tirade.

This is a what happens when you allow fighting tirade.

This is about the code and by association the scrum that swept up Mikhail Grabovski and the Canadiens’ Max Pacioretty.

In case you haven’t heard, the league declined to suspend Grabovski for what Pacioretty said was a bite in a scrum Saturday night.

The facewash in hockey is as old as shin pads. Sometimes it’s penalized, sometimes it’s not but if you ticketed every ...
