Randy Carlyle Firing: What Changes Moving Forward?

Randy Carlyle’s inevitable firing brought about as crazy a day in Leafs land as any in recent memory. Phil Kessel and Dave Feschuk arguing, with Kessel calling Feschuk disrespectful and an idiot. Ex-coach Ron Wilson suddenly...
Dion Phaneuf, Nazem Kadri

GDT: Game #40, Toronto Maple Leafs vs Winnipeg Jets (7 p.m., HNIC)

The banged-up Maple Leafs will look to salvage something out of a back to back after a tough loss to the Minnesota Wild last night. "They're pretty strong in back-to-backs, the skate well and they can...

GDT: Game #36, Toronto Maple Leafs vs Florida Panthers (5 p.m., SNO)

This will be the third week in a row with a Sunday game for the Maple Leafs, something we should probably get used to as Rogers pushes their new Hometown Hockey Sunday night program...

What Does the Future Hold for Jake Gardiner?

And what should the Leafs do with the polarizing young defenceman? The answer isn't an instantly-gratifying one: Continue to be patient. There is currently no bigger riddle or lightning rod on the Maple Leafs than the...

Game Review: Game #34, Chicago Blackhawks 4 vs. Toronto Maple Leafs 0

In the game day thread before the Carolina game, we talked about how, in March of 2014, the Leafs were on a red-hot streak that included wins over the Kings and Ducks right before they...

GDT: Game #34, Toronto Maple Leafs vs. Chicago Blackhawks (7 p.m., CityTV)

The Maple Leafs take on the Blackhawks in a quick turnaround following an embarrassing defensive effort last night against Philadelphia. It's the second weekend in a row where the Leafs play Saturday-Sunday, with the second...

GDT: Game #32, Toronto Maple Leafs vs. Carolina Hurricanes (7 p.m., TSN4)

The league's hottest team pays a visit to its coldest tonight in Carolina. The two teams are riding opposite streaks, the Leafs winners of six straight and the Hurricanes losers of six consecutive. With Alex Semin,...

JVR, PDO and the Leafs Defense

I didn't have any particular topic I wanted to write about this week, so yesterday morning I asked my twitter followers what they wanted me to write about as far as a statistical analysis of...

GDT: Game #28, Toronto Maple Leafs vs Detroit Red Wings (8 p.m., SN)

The Toronto Maple Leafs (6-3-1 in their last 10) are in Detroit to take on the Red Wings (8-2-0). Detroit has been one of the hottest team's in the League since they were defeated...

Game Review: Game #27, Toronto Maple Leafs 4 vs. Calgary Flames 1

If you're Randy Carlyle, in terms of process, you're probably only really happy with the middle 20 minutes in this game (and of course Jonathan Bernier's performance). That sounds bizarre after a 4-1 win, but...

GDT: Game #25, Toronto Maple Leafs vs. New Jersey Devils (7:30 p.m., TSN4)

The struggling New Jersey Devils are in Toronto to take on the warm-getting-warmer Maple Leafs. “They’re playing with confidence, a lot of speed, a lot of depth. I think they’ve won four or five in a...

GDT: Game #24, Toronto Maple Leafs vs Dallas Stars (7:30pm, TSN4)

For the disappointing -- relative to off-season hype -- Dallas Stars, the key to victory has been quieting/limiting Seguin, Spezza and Benn. After that, the Stars have been dealing with a pretty big drop off in terms...

GDT: Game #22, Toronto Maple Leafs vs Washington Capitals (7 p.m., HNIC)

Game Review: Game #22, Pittsburgh Penguins 4 vs. Toronto Maple Leafs 3 (OT)

A point out of a visit with the league's best and highest-scoring team (15-4-2 with a +27 goal differential after this win) is something any team in the League will take, no questions asked. Especially if you...

GDT: Game #19, Toronto Maple Leafs vs. Nashville Predators (7:30 p.m., TSN4)

The Maple Leafs are looking for a bounce-back game after hitting the lowest point of their season so far, a blowout loss to league laughingstock the Buffalo Sabres on Saturday night. The Predators are one of...
Nazem Kadri Sabres

GDT: Game #18, Toronto Maple Leafs vs Buffalo Sabres (7pm, HNIC)

Toronto (9-6-2) is in Buffalo to take on the struggling Sabres (3-13-2) in what always feels like a home game for the visiting Maple Leafs. After a tough loss against the Pittsburgh Penguins, the Toronto Maple...
Phil Kessel Penguins

Friday Mashup: Back to Back On Tap

Pittsburgh tonight followed by Buffalo tomorrow. Better to be playing the Sabres when tired than the Penguins, at least. Friday Links: Paul Hendrick: Peter Horachek interview -- talks backside pressure, neutral zone coverage (Leafs TV) Jonas Siegel:...

Game Review: Game #16, Toronto Maple Leafs 6 vs. Boston Bruins 1

There will be some debate after this win as to whether the Leafs were just that good or the Bruins were just that “off.” Zdeno Chara and David Krejci were out of the lineup and...

Game Review: Game #13, Avalanche 4 vs. Maple Leafs 3 (SO)

We shouldn’t have to spill ink on the head-scratching decision that was the Morgan Rielly scratch, but it ended up clearly affecting the game in a negative way, so here we are. In Arizona,...

Game Review: Game #12, Arizona Coyotes 3 vs. Toronto Maple Leafs 2

Unprepared to start the game. That was the story of the Leafs' 3-2 loss to the Phoenix Coyotes on Tuesday night as they tried to dig themselves out of a 3-0 hole and ultimately couldn't...
