Close games were the order of the day yesterday in the National Hockey League. Both scheduled games resulted in one-goal victories. The Montreal Canadiens defeated the New York Rangers 4-3 for the second game in a row, this time at the Forum in Montreal. The Toronto Maple Leafs finally scored a goal, actually two of them. That was enough to give...

LEAFS DAILY: The Leafs lost last night 4-3 to the Coyotes, and while Mike Babcock wasn't happy with the game, I felt that a strong third period and solid games by Rielly, Kadri and Van Riemsdyk were actually reasons to be very positive about the performance. That being said, Coyotes centre Martin Hanzal left after the first period with an...

Singer Bing Crosby confirmed yesterday that he is a member of a syndicate that wants to bring NHL hockey to San Francisco. Crosby said that his group has not yet submitted an application to the league. He is aware of others in the Bay Area that also want the franchise, and he plans on contacting them to see if they should pool resources. NHL...

LEAFS DAILY: The Maple Leafs took a backseat the last few weeks to the Blue Jays, who were playing in the Playoffs for the first time since 1993. A relevant and successful Toronto team is something most of us can barely wrap our heads around, but it really did happen and it was amazing. Removed from the moment, I don't even care now that they...

The Toronto Maple Leafs limped home to a fourth-place finish last season, 13 points behind regular season champion Detroit Red Wings. The failed attempt at defending their 1964 Stanley Cup title left many questions surrounding a team that is long in the tooth. Veteran savvy and guile can take a group only so far. With that in mind, general...

LEAFS DAILY Leafs Daily is a mostly daily (but sometimes ironically named) Leafs Blog that will appear throughout the season as often as possible. We'll do our best to provide alternative coverage to everyone's favorite team - by which I mean that what you're going to get on a daily basis is more that just lineups and a recap of the news. Yes,...

The NHL season is just about two weeks old, but there is already so much happening that it seems like we may see more trade action early in the season than we usually do. Here are the top five teams - in my opinion - that are/should be most desperate to make a trade right now. #1. Chicago Blackhawks After winning the Cup last season, the Hawks...

LEAFS DAILY Let's be clear, Leo Komarov isn't going to lead the Leafs in scoring and the Leafs aren't likely to maintain their high possession ways with the roster that they have. Certainly James Van Riemsdyk and Tyler Bozak have way too long of a history putting up lousy possession stats to read too much into their current top-of-the-league...
