An active voice in the betterment of the sport of hockey, Brian Burke has three rule change proposals according to Darren Dreger. And I like all three, with some trepidation. Among the three, the bear...

Irwin that is. It was reported last night that the Maple Leafs had agreed to terms with 23 year old free agent forward Brayden Irwin, a former teammate of Viktor Stalberg at the University...

Tonight, the Toronto Maple Leafs hope to rebound from their loss to the Panthers with a win tonight against another team they must steal points from - the Atlanta Thrashers. The Leafs continue their...

After tonight's snoozer, let's move on to a bigger and better subject. Some of you may have watched a surprising Norway side battle Switzerland to the bitter end for a quarterfinal birth in their final...

Tonight, the Buds and Habs are set to battle it out and put their win streaks on the line. The Leafs are 5-1-0 in their last 6 outings, while the Canadiens are riding an...

#NHLAnagrams havebeen a big thing on twitter over the last week, and what a riot we've had. Some of the creations have been strictly comical (Daniel Alfredsson = An Idle Ass Fondler), some have been ridiculous (Brian Burke = Urban Biker) and others have fit so perfectly, you would think that it was by some magical force that their name and anagram had come to be (Zdeno Chara = A Hazard Cone, Vesa Toskala = aka Lost). With the Toronto Marliesseven points back with 12 games to go, I'm torn as to my thoughts of the post-season and based on the Marlies' anagram, Realism Torn Too.

It was a light day practice wise as the optional skate drew only a handful of players to the MasterCard Centre for Hockey Excellence. Only Luca Caputi, Christian Hanson, Wayne Primeau, Garnet Exelby and Jeff...

Once again, a hit to the head results in a dangerous play. Now that the NHL is looking to add a new "head-shot" rule, it seems the hits are becoming more glaring and frequent...

I attended practice at the MasterCard Center for Hockey Excellence, watching a loose group of players reveling in the 4-1 win over their provincial arch rivals. It all began with a loose skate, just...

The Ducks play spoiler to the blue and white... kind of. As the Marlies head down the stretch and zero in on the number four spot in the North West, Anaheim pulls a key contributor up to the big club. As if it's not already hard enough watching talent on the baby buds knowing they'll never develop into a Leaf.

As the playoff hopes gradually continue to fade for even the most optimistic of fans, the focal point of the Maple Leafs over the last few weeks has been on the stellar play of...

KULEMIN with the game winner, and that's all folks!!! Leafs win 4-3 in a thrilling overtime victory! Now, wasn't that an appropriate Torontosaurus Rex?! That was the Leafs first OT victory of the season. (1-9) ****** It feels...

The gold medal game is upon us, and fittingly, Canada will face off against their US rivals in a battle of hockey's elite. The US team, led by Zach Parise, Patrick Kane, and...

In the aftermath of a huge win over Russia, where Team Canada surprising outscored their rivals to the tune of 7-3, fans immediately - and naturally, I might add - began to eagerly anticipate...

Sunday: Stalberg called up, skating on the fourth line today with Primeau and Orr. I'd like to see Stalberg get more of a shot in an offensive role, but it's tough to argue for...

Those were the words of Chief disciplinarian Raymond Bolduc after handing out the ruling on Patrice Cormier's hit. The forward, who elbowed Mikael Tam of the Quebec Remparts in the head, received a suspension...

Coming off an uninspiring performance during a 4-3 road loss to the Atlanta Thrashers on Tuesday, the Maple Leafs look to rebound tonight with a more energetic effort in Tampa Bay against a struggling...

A shining example and further proof of New Jersey's dominance recently. Even when blanked for the first time this season, the Devils still ended up with a win, the full two points, and...

Last season, Phil Kessel registered 14 of 24 assists in an 18-game span, with 10 more over 58 games. He battled an ugly 14-game goalless skid (14-0-3-3), three games before going down to a...
