Argument: Leafs Only Option is to Clean House

IconSMI

With expectations high, there is disappointment in the air in taking 9 of a possible 20 points in the first 10 games of the season. As a result, there has been plenty of calls for change by Leaf Nation for their beloved Toronto Maple Leafs.

Assessing The Leafs and Their Problems

I know, you’re probably thinking “Another Leafs article”, but none of those articles are ever about anything. They are just repetitive rants about different line combinations, or unrealistic advice to GM John Ferguson. So I thought I’d write the truth, something that wouldn’t get Leafs fans made fun of…

Counter Argument: Status Quo Is the Way to Go for the Leafs

10 games into the season and panic has already started in Leaf Nation. The Toronto Maple Leafs have had a rough start to the season getting only 9 of a possible 20 points in the first 10 games with the bulk of them at home.

Could changes be coming?

The Leafs have called up Kronwall and Tlusty for the start of their road trip. Is this a sign that changes could be coming to the D. With Colaiacovo due back soon, Stralman now up and now Kronwall also called up, is this Maurice sending a message or are changes in the making? Harrison has also shown alot of grit with the Marlies, is he next? At forward Wellwood and Mark Bell are due back and with the call up of Tlusty, I would say that 2 forwards are on their way out. Again is this just Maurice sending a message or are changes coming up front as well? I would say that Ferguson and Maurice will do just about anything to save their jobs, so yes I expect changes to be made.

Leafs practising defensive drills

The Toronto Maple Leafs have talked the right talk thus far.mBut it really has been all talk.

Paul Maurice comes into training camp saying the Leafs need to work on 2 things:
1. Playing a better team defense
2. Staying out of the penalty box

That was over a month ago.

simon gomache, power play, penalty kill, Marlies

This guy has been playing his heart out, scoring, passing, hitting, doing everything he can to help this team win, if every player on this team had the same level of the energy as simon gomache for every shift that they hit the ice, the leafs would undoubtedly be fighting for the first place. I don’t know why, Leafs Players lack passion and enthusiasm that they should have for the game.
being up 3-1 and then losing 6-4 to bunch of 17-1nd 18 year old kids is absolutely unacceptable.

Tucker out indefinitely….

As stated on Sportsnet.ca, Tucker suffered a rather serious knee injury on Saturday against Chicago and is considered out indefinitely.

Goalie Controversy?!?!?

Gary Rothstein/Icon SMI

I had an epiphany of sorts last night while watching the Canadiens vs. Panthers game on TSN. What provoked this profound insight was the pre-game show, in which Glen Healy was asked, ‘Out of Florida, Toronto and Ottawa, who has a goal tending controversy?’. In a rare moment of brilliance, Healy responded by saying that the Toronto Maple Leafs were the only team out of the three who had an actual, bona fide goalie fueled conflict.
