See You Next Year


A welcomed three day break over Christmas has revitalized the Maple Leafs and readied them for the task at hand.

That’s five games in the next seven days starting late this afternoon in Sunrise, Florida as Toronto plays the Panthers in a 5 p.m start from BB and T Arena.

All five games are on the road including two sets of back to backs with the Leafs not returning home to play Washington until January 7th of 2015.

The first game back could make for a lethargic beginning from both clubs tonight but […]

A Down Day In Dallas


Three days prior to Christmas the Maple Leafs may have got a present they most wanted. Beyond a much needed two points what they got today was a day off.

Much needed although the clubs critics might argue it wasn’t much deserved.

That said the Leafs played their sixth game in nine nights Sunday in Chicago. As much as head coach Randy Carlyle would’ve loved to have practiced in Dallas Monday, he knew it would be akin to drawing blood from a stone.

So the Leafs look to snap a three-game losing streak against […]

Back To Basics In Chicago


The Toronto Maple Leafs arrived in Chicago around midnight central time Saturday in need of resetting their clocks and their approach to playing games.

The Leafs had just dropped a 7-4 decision at home to the Philadelphia Flyers in a second straight loss after winning six straight.
Of major concern is the fact that Toronto has given up 79 shots against in back to back losses to Carolina and Philadelphia.

David Clarkson’s first period goal last night provided the Leafs with its last lead of the game at 3-2 before the Flyers stormed […]

Continue Rally In Raleigh


The Leafs will play nine of their next 10 games on the road beginning with tonight’s encounter in Carolina against the Hurricanes.
For the Leafs who’ve gone 10-1-1 since that momentous loss to Nashville, this contest can surely be described as the proverbial trap game.

The Hurricanes have lost six straight, not scored more than a goal in either of those six losses, and currently are the top contender for Connor McDavid with an NHL worst 19 points.

That said however games in Carolina are never a given for the Leafs. They’ve not […]

Motor City Preview


The Leafs and Red Wings renew acquaintances tonight in Detroit.

It’s the 652nd meeting between these storied rivals and the 6th contest already this season if you include two preseason games.

Both teams will wrap up the season series Saturday night in Toronto.

These clubs know each other well and David Booth knows this rivalry especially well.

The Livonia, Michigan native grew up watching the Wings thanks to season tickets his parents had when he was a kid and still have.

Booth will make his first appearance as a Leaf against his childhood team tonight.

He […]

Prospect Update

Rinat Valiev

Christmas is less than three weeks away and its onset means the arrival of the World Junior Championships and the possibility of three Leaf prospects participating in the event.

From a Canadian perspective 2013 Leaf 1st rounder Frederik Gauthier is hoping to make the roster for a second straight year. The 6-4, 220 pound centre is looked upon for his defensive prowess in a shutdown role as well a penchant for killing penalties.

Gauthier suffered broken ribs at the Leaf rookie tournament in London in early September and subsequently missed the start […]

The Man From Van


Mike Santorelli hails from Vancouver following in the path of another West coaster in Morgan Rielly.

Vancouver’s contributions to the Leafs over time has seen Glenn Anderson figure prominently.

But B.C’s largest city has produced few with the ability to make an impact as Leafs since then.

Santorelli is hoping to change all that yet recognizing the best of a hometown that gave him his start in life and hockey.

The son of an Italian immigrant from Naples, Santorelli’s father Vince loved soccer but saw merits to playing that other game when it came […]

Never Give Up


As a young man growing up in Munich where soccer dominated his sporting environment Korbinian Holzer’s goal was always to play in the NHL someday.

And while most German youngsters idolized soccer greats like Jurgen Klinsmann and Franz Beckenbauer, Holzer’s hero was Scott Stevens of the New Jersey Devils.

The lanky right handed shot progressed rapidly in the German hockey system making his professional debut as a 17 year old.

He’d play in two World Junior tournaments and represent his country at the 2010 Olympics in Vancouver.

That same year saw Holzer play before […]

Dion’s Early Memories


The business side of hockey and the responsibilities that go with being captain of the Toronto Maple Leafs can certainly weigh on the broad shoulders of Dion Phaneuf.

But as challenging as they may be, Phaneuf has never lost his love of simply playing the game, a passion that found its beginnings growing up in Edmonton.

Phaneuf is in his 10th NHL season and is knocking on the door of 30, but he remains a kid at heart.

He was a major contributor to the Alberta Children’s Hospital while playing in Calgary and […]

Nazem Kadri’s Evolution

Nazem Kadri

Nazem Kadri might not be having the offensive year expected of him with 5 goals and 5 assists through 22 games.

After all the 3rd year Maple Leaf scored 18 goals in his rookie season in 48 games in 2012-13 and totaled 17 points in the opening 22 games a year ago.

But Kadri has stepped up in other areas. He’s playing a 200 foot game, his faceoff percentage is up at 50 percent from the low to mid 40’s and he’s physical.

His development isn’t lost on the man who coached him […]
