The Maple Leafs began on-ice workouts today at their new practice facility, the Mastercard Centre for Hockey Excellence. I’ve been given credentials and was on site for the first day and will be attending all...

I won't go into a lot of detail about the game itself, as Alec covered that quite well. The news, for the most part, was good.   Many of the Leafs' prospects were impressive in their...

Looks like the numbers have changed a bit from last year. RFA Refresher If teams sign a restricted free agent (RFA), the team holding that player's rights has the opportunity to match that offer.   If the...

I'm going to take a moment to depart from hockey talk, and encourage readers and fellow bloggers to join our friends at Toronto Sports Media in their open challenge to raise unprecedented Barilkosphere support...

Two contrasts in Leafs prospects from the Memorial Cup with Chris Didomenico breaking his left femur, and the continued development of Dale Mitchell. It's truly amazing that aside from a six-game stretch in February 2008,...

This proposed offer to purchase the struggling Phoenix Coyotes by Jim Balsillie may be a better possibility this time around. It may seem impossible to fathom another NHL club so close to its...

This is the second installment from Rigadori Filmworks on "Minute with Murrey". In this episode, Murrey discusses the recent polls conducted on fighting in hockey and challenges the theories of Pierre McWire in how...

Remember the way back in the day when the "Can't Beat Cujo" signs filled the ACC on those passionate, rambunctious (always wanted to use this word) Saturday nights? Well tonight, we got a brief...

So much for easing Justin Pogge into his second start against the low-scoring Minnesota Wild. With that degree of spotty defensive coverage, even the lowest of low-scoring teams would've lit up the Leafs for...

Coaches Corner maybe becoming increasingly irrelevant as the staunchly patriotic Don Cherry rambles about musings better suited to an age when every player was nicknamed “Butch” and that a Swede was something related to...

Just six months ago many a grapevine was carrying rumor of NHL expansion while I lamented the integrity of a revenue bound salary cap. Even into the new season few had foreseen the sheer...

John Tavares ties the most goals ever by a player in the World Juniors with 12 but managed to do so in 1 less game than Jeff Carter, and 13 less games than Eric...

It’s their final exhibition matchup of the pre-tournament and Canada looks to apply the same pressure they’ve produced in their first two meetings. Sunday night’s game against Finland showed that this team can in...

Canada came through the gate a bit slow and sluggish. They managed to escape the first period tied at 1, but as the game progressed with chances equaling out by the midway point, Canada...

Team Quinn does exactly what the former NHL head coach always demanded from his team. An all out hard hitting war, and that’s exactly what fans have gotten. Victor Hedman is welcomed to the tournament...
