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...

Although the season is only about a week and a half deep, there are already more than a few telling signs that should hold relatively true over the course of the season. Of course, some teams are playing far above the expectations placed upon them, but for most that won't last very long as they come back to Earth after a couple of weeks. On the...

LEAFS DAILY  Well, if the Penguins are a Cup Contender and the Leafs an Auston Matthews contender, you wouldn't have known it by watching last night's game in which the team filled with superstars looked decidedly mediocre against a team made up of cast offs like Arcobello, Parenteau and Boyes. Now, this isn't to say the Leafs were the better...

Leafs Daily The Leafs (0-2-1) are back after a long layoff and they will face the Blue Jackets tonight in Columbus. The Jackets are off to a brutal start in which they were outscored 20-9 and lost four straight games. Most people considered the Blue Jackets - after their great run to end last season - to be among the favorites in the Metro...

LEAFS DAILY The Leafs haven't played since losing 5-4 to Ottawa last Saturday and they play tomorrow night in Columbus. While it is a long layoff for the beginning of the season, it's certain that with the Blue Jays playing in the playoffs and the Leafs (most likely) facing a year of losing and building, that not too many people really...
