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?

The answer, of course, ...

#MusicMonday: Pre-game Playlists

bozak600mar3

Whether in the dressing room or during warm-ups it’s music that plays a big role in getting in to game mode. For the Leafs, the pre-game playlist is very important. In fact, the team handpicks the songs that will flow through the sound system at Air Canada Centre as they take to the ice prior to the game.

The 15 minute warm-up features a mashup of upbeat songs and while I’m not sure who has the ultimate stamp of approval in the dressing room, their selections get two thumbs up from ...

phaneuf500feb24

Now, where were we?

The Maple Leafs renew their season Thursday with a road date against the New York Islanders followed by another road engagement with Montreal on Saturday.

Here are 10 questions facing the club as they approach the last 22 games of the regular season.

Can Phil Kessel maintain his torrid pace? Kessel, a five-goal scorer during the Olympics and the tournament’s top forward, banked 27 points over his last 15 Leaf games. In that stretch he scored 11 times and did not go more than two games without a goal. ...

Throwback Thursday: 15 years at Air Canada Centre

70115

Fifteen years ago today and after a long tenure filled with many memories at Maple Leaf Gardens the Leafs would move further south to a new arena constructed at Bay St. and Lakeshore Blvd. called Air Canada Centre. Occupying a site that previously housed Canada Post’s Toronto Postal Delivery Building, the new arena would retain some of the original building’s facade while the inside featured all the new bells and whistles.

In it’s first week, the building would host a Leafs game, a Toronto Raptors game, and soldout concerts of the ...
