One of the more interesting subplots to the Maple Leafs' 2010-11 preseason has been the Michael Liambas situation. Offered a tryout - amidst much fanfare - in time for the team's annual Rookie Camp,...

Day Two of on-ice participation is now in the books .. the sessions all had a purpose, as camp not only winds down, but clear decisions need to be made on who will remain...

The Toronto Maple Leafs held their on-ice portion of training camp today. Players have been split into three squads to accommodate the 63 players invited to camp. Among the contingent of fans outside the ice...

As much as I tried to just sit back and enjoy the game as a fan last night, I couldn't help but take a few notes (this might have been because we ended up sitting among...

Finally the day many of us have been waiting for has arrived.  The NHL Toronto Maple Leafs rookie tournament kicks off this afternoon in London, Ontario, and for many it's a chance to catch...
Brett Lebda

Brett Lebda has barely registered on the radar for Leafs fans and with good reason. This offseason is yet again centered solely on Tomas Kaberle, while Lebda toils away on the bottom pairing...

It's that time of year again. The Canadian World Junior Development Camp for the 2011 tournament in Buffalo is under way, as the Canadians try to bounce back from a heartbreaking loss against D'Amigo...

Colby Armstrong’s shiny new 3-year, $9,000,000 contract with the Maple Leafs has been the focus of much debate over the past month. Leaving the contract argument aside, it would be prudent to take a...

This is why I don't like doing prospect profiles.  Call it the "Curse of GB". 2008-09's semi-popular "Getting To Know You" series featured six players who were (at the time) prospects Leafs' fans were excited...

The word out of Los Angeles today remains that Brian Burke has yet to receive an acceptable offer for Tomas Kaberle. While talks are said to be heating up according to Pierre LeBrun's twitter...

As we head into the draft weekend, Burke's shown the fans and media that a) he's not afraid to swing a huge deal and b) no one's going to see it coming. You can...

Took a couple days off, but now let's get back to the draft profiles. Today's 2010 draft primer will focus on Andrew Yogan, an American-born power forward who plays for the Erie Otters of...

Blacker has all the keys to being a successful top-4 blue-liner, but expect him to play a couple seasons in the AHL before seeing his first ice time in the big leagues. The newly turned nineteen year old must also add 20-25lbs to fill out his somewhat lanky frame in order to compete regularly against the leagues best. Though the Leafs depth at defensive has Blacker currently in the bottom third, as long as the Maple Leafs have Burke as general manager, Jesse will be in the system. Truculence and testosterone tops this youngster's resume, with a side of pugnacity and a light sprinkling of belligerence. I would compare the future of Blacker to that of Mike Van Ryn, just without the injuries (hopefully).

In continuing with our preparation for the 2010 NHL Entry Draft, which takes place June 25th - 26th at the Staples Centre in Los Angeles, today's draft primer will profile right winger Brett...

Former Team Canada World Juniors captain, Patrice Cormier, will be facing charges of "assault causing injury," says Annie-Claude Bergeron, a spokes-person for the Crown prosecutor's office of Rouyn-Noranda. Cormier will appear in court on...

For longtime fans of the NHL, it was nothing new. An organization set to come in, guns blazing, and attempt to be "competition" for the National Hockey League.  On the surface, perhaps not a bad...
