NHL Awards

With approximately 10 games remaining for each team in the regular season, the race for the NHL’s Individual Awards will not change much. We can now make an educated guess on who the recipiants will be. Who do you think will take home the hardware?

Reasons why people hate Toronto!

Over the years the Toronto Maple Leafs organization have been heavily criticized by many hockey fans coming from all over North America all the way to Europe.

Is it the Toronto Media? Or is it just the Toronto fans themselves?

I know this is the last thing Leaf-haters want, another Maple leaf article. But this one will be on the basis of bashing them. Being a leaf-hater myself I thought I’d share my reasons for hating the biggest team in Canada and in hockey.
