The Calder Trophey, given to the leagues top rookie, would probably be best described as a three man race at this point ( Although 4 candidates stick out in my mind ). The 4 are Evgeni Malkin, Pittsburgh Penguins… Paul Statsney, Colorado Avalanche… Jordan Staal, Pittsburgh Penguins… and Anze Kopitar, Los Angeles Kings.

Why it is time for Mats Sundin's tenure in Toronto to come to an end

It has been the most debated topic in Leaf Nation since the end of the lockout. Does Mats Sundin fit into the future of the Toronto Maple Leafs? The simple answer is no. The aim of a hockey team is to win, and we won’t win under Mats Sundin.

Alexei Kovalev. Do you want him?

Wanted: Someone to take this guy off of our hands.

Off-Season Game Plan

Alright so as we all know the Leafs have have roughly 11 million to spend this off-season. I personally believe the Leafs shouldnt drop the bomb and sign players like Drury,Briere, Smyth and so on but they should sign key players that will fill out certain roles and will add depth to the roster where we could have 3 consistant lines rolling and a great 4th checking line.

Where are Drury and Brier Going?

Drury and Briere are Free Agents at the end of the year and if Buffalo loses them even one, they could be a much less threat to the NHL, I doubt we will see both Drury and Breir wearing Sabers jerseys next year, but where will they go?

Toronto rumors and truths.

I’m sorry Sens Fans but it’s all true. I know you don’t want it to be but it is. I’m going to give you such a headache and really be in all your faces if you don’t like the truth then don’t read this.

Kovalev Anyone?

Alexei Kovalev wants out of Montreal, he has stated he wants out. The Leafs have an over-payed defenseman by the name of Pavel Kubina. The only way to get rid of an over-payed player is to get another over-payed player. Kovalev can play when motivated. I think a change of scenery to Toronto would do wonders for him, and playing with a real first-line center in Mats Sundin, I think it would be awesome. So here is the proposed trade:

Kovalev wants out

Alex Kovalev told Gainey that he didn’t want to be back on the team if he was treated the same way he was this season. I heard if Souray and Kovalev go, Gainey is going to pick up a Headlined UFA.



How? Simple the fans got to their heart and it made them want to win.

Right now the team needs the fans behind them. Forget the Malik giveaway goal that ruined the game last night for them. Don’t boo him yet.
Cause they need Ranger fans to breathe life into the team.

Who is the best play-by-play man in the NHL?

There are alot of good announcers in the NHL but none of them beat the Buffalo Sabers radio voice Rick Jeaneret. Fortunately I live in Hamilton, Ontario which is is about an hour away from Buffalo so I can get WGRZ 550. Whenever the leafs play buffalo, Forget AM 640 I am listening to WGRZ 550 so I can hear Rick Jeaneret. Anyway here are some of his best calls:

Captains on the move?

Because of underachievement, contract issues, need of improvement all of the Canadian teams could have new captains next season.

A realistic look into the Leafs offseason.

The way I see it is that we are going to welcome back two past players. Both of whom want to be with the Leafs. Better get a drink this is a long one but a good one.

Leafs sign Devereaux

TSN is reporting that the Leafs have signed Boyd Devereaux to a 2 year deal worth $550,000 and $600,00….
