Latest Toronto Maple Leafs News


Who would’ve thought we would be saying those words in reference to the Maple Leafs just a week ago? There was a palpable air of awkwardness present as Tim Leiweke called this ‘Shanny’s team and culture” while Dave Nonis sat listening at the other end of the table. Shanahan is his Leafs’ Masai Ujiri, and Leiweke made no bones about referencing that directly. Dave Nonis is saying all the right things as of now -- about knowing this role was in the offing for some time, looking at it as an opportunity to collaborate with another good hockey mind, Shanny...

Leaf Fan Reaction Video

The team with the best odds last picked first in 2010. The Leafs have an 8.7% chance of moving down to 9th overall, but a 3.6% chance of moving all the way up to 1st. Obligatory: [youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zMRrNY0pxfM] Bill Daly will reveal the results at 8 p.m. EST on TSN.


We began our search for a new head coach for the Toronto Maple Leafs with an in-depth look at Peter DeBoer over the weekend. DeBoer officially received the MLHS stamp of endorsement, but he has since been confirmed to be remaining in New Jersey next season. Be it a new deal, or a contract option we weren’t aware of, apparently his contract isn’t expiring anymore. Next up we’ll look at someone whose contract definitely did expire: veteran coach Barry Trotz, formerly the longest-tenured coach in the NHL before his 15-year-reign as Predators bench boss ended just the other day.
