Toronto Maple Leaf News and Rumors
Canada.com “offsides” has reported a rumor about the blackhawks asking about the availability of Bryan McCabe.
Once again, the Leafs let another slip through their butterfinger-like hands. But this time, there are no denying that someone screwed up royally. Now, do we blame Paul Maurice for putting Kronwall on the ice with little time left on the clock (and allowing the tying goal) and then decides to put Antropv and McCabe as two of the starting trio. Or do we blame McCabe, who we should now call Mr. Overtime. He seems not only to be the achilles heel for the Toronto Maple Leafs this year, but the worst part about it is that he doesn’t even care that he causes so much misery. The look on his face after giving up that pass was priceless… take a good look at it… it looks as though it was indifference.
Sportsnet and the FAN 590 are reporting the Leafs will be without the services of defenseman Pavel Kubina after an injury to his MCL in Saturday nights shootout loss to the Rangers
Strong support for another NHL team in Southern Ontario
According to Forbes, the Toronto Maple Leafs are the most valuable NHL team, valued at $332 million.
This value is rather remarkable, considering that the Maple Leafs have not won the Stanley Cup in 40 years. In addition, Toronto came out on top even though it has a smaller population size than New York, Los Angeles and Chicago, the largest Metropolitan cities in the United States.
This much can be said: The frustration level between Jason Blake and the Maple Leafs is at full peak. At this stage, no one is quite sure what to make of the other and neither side is happy….
I was just over at NHL.com reading the list of players on The All Star Ballot. After I wiped my eyes and reloaded the page to make sure my peepers were not playing tricks on me, I was understandably sick.
The Maple Leaf’s lost 5-1 to the Sens. The first half of the game saw an uninspired team go down 4-0 to the Sens and it took a time-out/goalie-switch/and major vending spree from Paul Maurice to get this team back to life although they still came up quite short losing 5-1.
I know what you’re thinking….ARGH….another Leaf article. Sorry but I have to get this out there.
This is a rant from a really angry die hard leaf fan .
I am sitting here in agony watching my leafs get man handled by a better and better Coached team in the Ottawa Senators score 4-0 and counting . It has come to me that it is not our defensemen that are the problem but our defensive play as a whole (team) giving up three short handed 2 on 1’s on the same power play and one resulting in a goal is just pathetic .
An optimist could argue the leafs are a top notch offensive team waiting for the defense to find its groove before the team takes off. A pesimist would argue their a bad team on a hot streak, waiting to collapse into the basement once the scoring slows down.
