Toronto Maple Leaf News and Rumors
The Toronto Maple Leafs, in all likelyhood, will not make the Stanley Cup playoffs this year, sorry Leaf fans, last nights slaughtering of the Ottawa Senators was more proof that the Sens are over rated, then the Leafs being under rated. The Leafs are a team with their top goal scorers being Darcy Tucker, and Chad Kilger, (other then Sundin of course) who are both second liners, at best, and it has become painfully obvious, that whether he is the leagues outstanding player or not, a Leafs playoff appearance will mean a Hart trophy performance from Mats Sundin.
As a Leaf fan I am excited to see what could happen in tonight’s game against Ottawa. Its great to see that the Leafs are committed to playing younger players and how Head Coach Paul Maurice will handle this new Leafs team. With Paul Maurice behind the bench, the team will work hard and be more accountable for their actions unlike last year’s team.
I hope the Leafs make the playoffs but I more relieved that Quinn is gone as Head Coach. Quinn was a huge reason why the Leafs underachieved. I am ready to go, bring on the 82 game schedule.
Go Leafs Go
I submitted an article about the mistakes I think the Leafs have made in building their team. After that, I wanted to take a look at what they had, and what they needed and how I could have done it better.
Pavel Kubina will sit out Toronto’s season-opener against Ottawa on Wednesday after the NHL suspended the Maple Leafs defenceman one game for his cross-check on Detroit Red Wings forward Juri Hudler.
The Leafs seemed to struggle still 5 on 5. The signings of Kubina, Gill and Peca was supposed to improve Toronto’s even strength play, yet it seems this isn’t the case.
I was up set when i read this beacause Heatly might be getting away with it.He’s is taking chances away of possibly futur stars, he should be punished!
Today it was announced that Forwards John Mitchell, Robbie Earl, Jiri Tlusty, Kris Newbury and Jeremy Williams were sent to the Marlies.
From what i’ve seen so far, this is what my Leafs line up wwould be:
The Day and Time have come when Hockey Minds should start to think outside the box….
There were alot of improvements last year in the game…
Following two preseason games I have made my lines of the Toronto Maple Leafs.
Two assists and a few big hits was all it took for me to love Mike Peca. Of course it is still not known whether the peca we got is the 8 goal peca who played for the oilers last season or the peca who scored 6 goals, got 34 hits and blocked 24 shots in 24 playoff games. I personally think we got the playoff peca because he is comeing off of a terrific post season and because he is playing in his hometown where he will presumeably play with a great deal of heart trying to get his favourite team to the playoffs.
Wow what a performance he put in net last night, is it possible for him to be our starter and for Rayroft to be back up?
Leafs announced Friday that they have signed rookie prospect Brent Aubin to an entry-level contract.
Carlo Colaiacovo was forced to leave practice today; the first day of training camp.
According to TSN, Doug ‘Killer’ Gilmour is back in the fold of the Leafs as the player personel advisor.
TSN.ca is reporting
The Toronto Maple Leafs and forward Matt Stajan have agreed on a two-year deal worth $1.75 million.
