bernier600mar17

The Maple Leafs practiced in Detroit on Monday as they get set to close out the five-game road trip against the Wings on Tuesday (7:30pm Sportsnet, FAN590).

Following the hour-long skate at Joe Louis Arena, head coach Randy Carlyle gave an update on Leafs goaltender Jonathan Bernier. The netminder left Thursday’s game against Los Angeles after the first period and didn’t dress in Sunday’s loss.

“Jonathan Bernier went for an MRI today and it was revealed that he has a low-grade groin strain,” Carlyle said. “We don’t believe it is week-to-week but rather ...

Leafs Prospect Connor Brown The Number One Point Getter In Nation

brown500nov23

Connor Brown has a great pedigree but humble beginnings.

The son of a minor-pro hockey player and the brother of four-year OHLer, the Leafs draft pick stands out because of where he started from.

Brown was drafted by the Erie Otters in the 13th round of the midget draft. The Leafs waited until the sixth round to choose him at 156  in 2012.

Brown’s 43 goals and 123 points in 65 games don’t just lead the OHL. His point total betters those of the QMJHL and WHL leaders which makes the 20-year-old Toronto ...

Here’s why Dave Nonis stood pat.

nonis600mar5

Ladies and gentlemen, your Toronto Maple Leafs.

While the Montreal Canadiens landed Thomas Vanek and the New York Rangers grabbed Martin St. Louis,  Leafs GM Dave Nonis elected, as expected, to keep things as is on trade deadline day.

Let’s look at this from a couple of vantage points.

At first blush, Nonis’ inactivity comes down to one question: are the Leafs as porous as the team that garnered just two of six points after the break or the gangbusters group that went 11-2-2 in the heady days before Sochi?
