It’s official. The Leafs will face the Bruins in round one. I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t hoping for the Habs on Tuesday. As much as the last four games against the Habs...

Can't wear your jersey 24 hours a day? Get this Beatles-inspired T-shirt exclusive to Maple Leafs Hot Stove just in time for the PLAYOFFS!!! There are a limited amount of these tees left, so act...

I hope to have an article up later in the week, but for now I thought I’d share some notes. - Make it three straight years in which a player other than Phil Kessel...

As the Toronto Maple Leafs skip along to their first playoff berth in eight seasons, Dion Phaneuf’s play is forcing his name to be included in discussion for the Norris Trophy.  The Norris is...

A Toronto Maple Leaf hasn't won a major NHL award in an embarrassing amount of years. This year, however, it looks as if there could be a case made for 3 award nominations —major or...

That. That was the win that cemented the Leafs as playoff worthy. 1 - The Leafs started nice and bright, carrying the pace early. JvR, contrary to pre-game line projections, started on the top line...
Joffrey Lupul

What an impressive showing by Joffrey Lupul last night. Re-united with 2011-12 running mates Tyler Bozak and Phil Kessel after an in-game audible by coach Carlyle, he led the Leafs to a not-always-convincing 3-2...

Toronto overcame a slow start on the second night of a back-to-back set to close out the league-worst Florida Panthers at home.  The game featured the return of Joffrey Lupul to the Kessel line,...

‘Tis the season for Leafs trade rumours. Now, I’m not about to dig up every rumour out there on the internet and go through it, but I do want to provide some thoughts on...

Tonight, Randy Carlyle will stick with James Reimer seemingly in an effort to give Reimer a chance at staking a number one's claim to the crease. Carlyle has stated his preference to have one...

With the boats now foolishly burnt and the season 31 games old, the Toronto Maple Leafs sure look like they’re reeling into form.  Since starting the season with a record of 15 – 9...
Mikhail Grabovski

After a good comeback/confidence-building game against the Tampa Bay Lighting, the Toronto Maple Leafs  have perhaps created more questions than answers. The Penalty Kill keeps improving (now 6th in the East) and, even as...

It’s like déjà vu all over again. And no, I’m not talking about “The Slide.” Last season, the Leafs went into the year with moderately low expectations. Many had hoped the Leafs would be able to...

Among certain members of the mainstream media covering the Leafs, there seems to be this idea that won't go away where Tyler Bozak will name Mikhail Grabovski's $5.5 million as his starting point if...
Corey Perry

With just over three weeks to go until the trade deadline, I feel as if I can get away with a rosterbation post without too much scrutiny. I’ll do my best to not go...
Tyler Bozak

I took in what felt like a one-point win last night at the ACC. I of little faith was thinking “blow out” after the bang-bang goals in the first, but there seems to be...

The Leafs welcomed the Penguins in what was their second meeting of the season. A win in the first game in Pittsburgh certainly felt good, but this was a Penguins team that has 7...

Since we are almost at the halfway point, I thought now would be a good time to write some notes on each individual player thus far. Here is the close-but-not-quite-halfway Leafs Notebook: Goaltenders James Reimer...

On Wednesday, Wade Arnott, Phil Kessel’s agent, indicated his client’s apparent desire to spend the rest of career playing hockey for the Toronto Maple Leafs.  This, despite being disappointed in the club’s performance last...
Phil Kessel

The agent for Phil Kessel joined Greg Brady and Jim Lang to discuss the evolution of Kessel's game, his mindset during the scoring drought and how the forward feels about playing in Toronto. Said Wade...
