TORONTO - Whether it's positive or negative, the Maple Leafs are consistently the talk of Toronto. The Toronto Marlies, often left behind in all the commotion, are now the centre of attention with the Maple Leafs out...

Author's note - Before I get started and preview the Toronto Marlies first playoff game this season, I'd like to thank the team at MLHS for bringing me onboard.  A little bit about myself for...

Perhaps the best part about Nazem Kadri's two-goal, three-point performance last night against the Ottawa Senators is that he can start the season with the Toronto Marlies with his head held high. Certainly, Leafs...

There's nothing quite like the story of the home-grown athlete. Everyone likes asking Oakville's John Mitchell what it's like to put on the Leafs sweater every day, or trying to find some way to relate to Jesse Blacker's being drafted by his local club. But when adversity is thrown into the mix, when a player has to go through some degree of hardship to make it to not only the level he wants to be, but for the team he wants to play for, that's when a story becomes a best seller.

It was no less than two months ago that I was pondering this same question, that of captaincy, and examining the same factors. Thinking of all the tangibles – speed, talent and scoring – along with attributes that are harder to judge – the ability to command the respect of the team, lead with strength of character and handle the Toronto media through success and failure. The lone difference is that last time, it was the Leafs.

Is it just me, or has the hockey season passed us by far quicker than usual? It seems like I just finished making arrangements for the home opener against Hamilton (which, might I add was a win) and here I am already looking back at the season that was. It was an absolute blur of call-ups and injuries. The bright young stars that comprised the frat-pack line (Tyler Bozak, Christian Hanson and Viktor Stalberg) all found their way up to the Leafs. Carl Gunnarsson, the player I was most keen on going into the season, left the Marlies early on for the big club and never looked back.

#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.

Who would have guessed that with all the attention surrounding the Leafs 2009 1st round pick, it would actually be the Toronto kid selected in the 2nd round that would be first to string some games together on a pro club. Though not officially announced, Jesse Blacker has left the OHL and joined the Toronto Marlies for the remainder of the season.

The Toronto Star provides us with a couple interesting tidbits about potential trade talks leading up to the deadline: - Ponikarovsky continues to be heavily linked to Pittsburgh. Previously, we learned from CBC's Hotstove that...

By Gus Katsaros The Leafs aren’t as bad as a four win first quarter. They were a playoff bubble team prior to the season, and the postseason wasn’t necessarily the goal, as was becoming competitive...

While the Leafs made the decision not to renew Marlies coach Greg Gilbert, some of the players are truly on the ball. Some Marlies have traded their skates for runners, augmenting any off season training...

Even though the Maple Leafs season is officially over, it doesn't mean that there's no playoff hockey here in Toronto. The Marlies just started their Round 1 series of the AHL playoffs last night...
