My bet on whether the Leafs will try to acquire Luongo.

picechart600apr25

Note: While an employee at MLSE I have absolutely no idea whether the Maple Leafs will pursue Roberto Luongo. This post is a reasonable and hopefully reasoned guess. Anywhoo…

I have this great idea about marriage.

There should be a no-fault window for separation every five years; sort of a renegotiation where you can look at the Missus and say ‘up for another five?’

What the Leafs need to consider about Roberto Luongo is whether they want to be married to him for the rest of his playing life. How long he wants ...

Pleasure trip lands Percy in the spotlight.

Less than a year after Maple Leafs GM Brian Burke selected him in the first round of the NHL draft, defenceman Stuart Percy is logging big playoff minutes with the Toronto Marlies.

They call it the imposter syndrome.

It afflicts most everyone. The more you think about something the more unreal it feels when you get it.

Which brings us nicely to defenceman Stuart Percy, just 18, and drafted 25th overall by the Maple Leafs last June? A concussion meant a speed bump this season in junior but in 150 games with ...

Marlie Joe Colborne doesn’t remember last goal…for now.

Joe Colborne, shown here in a November game with the Maple Leafs against Washington, is looking to reclaim the momentum that made him the AHL's player of the month in October. Colborne had two assists as the Marlies won their AHL payoff opener 4-3 over the Rochester Americans.

Over the last five years Joe Colborne has scored 130 goals. If you did that over a week your arms would get tired.

He has scored all kinds of goals with all kinds of people. He has scored in the Alberta Junior ...

Mueller looks to break through as Marlies ride into playoffs.

Marcel Mueller will get the chance to show he can contribute to the Maple Leafs as the Marlies open their first -round playoff against the Rochester Americans, Thursday at Ricoh Coliseum.

It began, as these stories always do, in a small Bavarian town known by a name I will not attempt to spell. A decade ago, Korbinian Holzer faced Marcel Mueller for the first time.

As 14-year-olds the two future Marlies met and pretty well instantly became estranged at a tournament in their native Germany. “He was the biggest defenceman and I was among the biggest forwards so we saw a lot of each other,” Mueller said Tuesday.

For lack of a snappier name, the two are known locally as The ...

The price of big and bad might make you mad.

schennulmerapr16

By any measure, especially his own, Leafs’ GM Brian Burke did not have a good year.

But in one element, Burke has been in front of the curve.

Big and bad is the new black.

In January, Burke reluctantly sent Colton Orr to the minors and publicly fretted the era of the fighter was over.

At the Leafs season-ending press conference Burke stressed the need to be bigger and stronger. “We need to address the size of the group and the compete level of the group,” he said.

“I like teams that go into buildings ...

Eakins eager to revisit the heightened competition of playoffs.

eakins600apr16

The kind of playoff moment a player will remember. Marlies coach Dallas Eakins, then a defenceman with the New York Rangers sends Eric Lindros into the Rangers' bench in a 1997 playoff game.

Dallas Eakins remembers the moment if he can’t quite place the date.

It was 1992 and the Marlies coach was in the second year a 15-year playing career that would see him manage 120 games in the NHL. He would touch down in 10 different American and International League towns: Baltimore, Binghamton, Chicago, Cincinnati, New Haven, Moncton, Winnipeg, ...
