After a disappointing end to the season, the Toronto Maples Leafs are looking forward to the future by making some key changes to the team. The Maple Leafs have had no such luck as other teams who did well earlier on this season, such as the Columbus Blue Jackets, who beat the Pittsburgh Penguins in the second game of the series. Similarly, the American Hockey League team, the Toronto Marlies, suffered an unfortunate defeat against the Texas Stars on Monday night, following their previous 5-1 victory against the Stars in game 1 of the Western Conference Final last Friday. The Marlies had...

A country that is perhaps better known for ice hockey, skiing, and humour (and not necessarily in that order), it could well add another couple of things to its future national heritage list over the next few months or so. Two trends emerging from this great nation are rugby but also online casinos.  Having played second fiddle to its neighbour USA in the gambling industry, Canadian-based company Amaya Gaming Group Incorporated are buying up as many gambling entities as possible in a bid to benefit from more relaxed gambling rules by US states for legalised online poker.  Capitalising on the...

TORONTO, Jan. 16, 2014 /CNW/ - Proving his talents aren't limited to the ice, Phil Kessel finished second in the NHL Alumni Charity Poker Tournament presented by PokerStars.net, beating out top poker talent and NHL Alumni to claim a share of the $100,000 charity prize-pool. Kessel outlasted two Canadian poker legends: Daniel Negreanu, Global Poker Index Poker Player of the Decade, and Jonathan Duhamel, 2010 World Series of Poker Main Event champion, on his way to claiming the second place spot. In the end, it came down to a heads up match between Kessel and another Team PokerStars Pro,...

Our friends at Winging It In Motown and in the Detroit blogosphere (the Delvecchiosphere? Gordosphere?) also have a generous streak and they've asked us, along with a number of other teams, to help them in fundraising in the lead up to the Winter Classic. They have a fun way of raising money during games and I'll let @jennyquarx explain: In the past, the bulk of the money we have raised comes from the pledges. You can pledge whatever you want but if it's something ridiculous, we ask that you keep track of it (every time Stevie is spotted is a...

Yesterday's contest didn't go exactly as planned. In hindsight, it relied pretty heavily on the Leafs winning the game. Don't blame us, though... who could've known readers on a Leafs fan site wouldn't predict the Senators to beat the Leafs in a hockey game? The following four posters receive viewing party ticket for getting the winning team right (lonsmos2 got the score right, too): Supercilious – Sens 5-0 Lonsmos2 – Sens 3-2 Biltmore – Sens 4-2 Eugene Aronov - Sens 4-2 I drew the final name from a hat, and the final winner is gilmourhalloffame.

Maple Leafs Hot Stove has been approached by a parent of my Nephew's Hockey Team seeking out a team sponsor(s). After speaking with Alec, we thought it would be a cool idea to see if the MLHS community would like to join in and sponsor the North Toronto Tyke Select Team. We will feature a write up on the progress of the team and players, as provided, and we can track the players here. Obviously, we'll respect the young player's anonymity and follow them with last names only or in a similarly anonymous way. Alec and I have started...

As always, I will incorporate a few of the best questions submitted by members of the MLHS community. Try to pick your single juiciest question rather than listing off a whole buffet.

Maple Leafs Hot Stove has been tasked with the challenge of submitting (for a blog series soon to be announced at a popular hockey website) a team of eight past or present Maple Leafs who were the best Blue and White representatives of the following countries: Canada USA Russia Czech Republic Slovakia Sweden Finland The Rest of The World (i.e. any country not listed here specifically) Our only criteria is that the player must have played 80 games for the Maple Leafs. With Brian Leetch disqualified by that criteria, the USA seems to have a lock in Phil Kessel. Czech Republic seems in little doubt with Tomas Kaberle. Picking...
