Toronto Maple Leafs

It was a Hall-of-Fame type week for the Toronto Maple Leafs as they hosted the Hall of Fame game and added a number of special moments to what has been an already impressive start to the season - now sitting at 11-5-0 through their first 16 games. While the class of 2018 was honoured prior to their game against the New Jersey Devils on Friday, one member of the Maple Leafs family had his name enshrined in the Hall, while two others continued to add to their already impressive careers. With that, here’s a look at the most recent news out of Toronto. Marleau’s Apple Farm It seems fitting that while the Maple Leafs played host to the Hall of Fame game, a likely future Hall of Famer added to his illustrious career - tallying his 600th career assist on a second period goal by Nazem Kadri.

Toronto Maple Leafs

In today's rumor rundown, the Pittsburgh Penguins are starting to realize they might need to shake things up to boost the team, the Buffalo Sabres understand that one of their free agent forwards is getting more expensive by the day and there are some teams taking stock of what it might take to land William Nylander. Penguins Might Make a Move Jonathan Bombulie of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review wrote that Pittsburgh Penguins GM Jim Rutherford stated during a radio appearance on 105.9 FM that some roster changes might be needed to help break the team's recent slump and improve team chemistry. Rutherford wondered if the team has settled in and not given their best effort because they've been used to success. Maybe the group has been together too long and it's time for a change. One example might be a player like Daniel Sprong who should have progressed but was a healthy scratch. When he is in the lineup, he's been playing on the fourth line instead of successfully...

Maple Leafs Goaltending

Frederik Andersen has quietly been the backbone of the Toronto Maple Leafs this season. Now in his third season wearing the blue and white, the Maple Leafs knew they had a strong goalie, someone who has helped guide them to back-to-back playoff appearances. He has had a great start to the season, and it’s helping Toronto get through a tough period with Auston Matthews on the shelf for at least the next few weeks with an injured shoulder. There have been times where the Maple Leafs have struggled putting up goals, but Anderson has been a constant. Has Andersen Been Overshadowed? The Maple Leafs were off-season darlings this summer after adding John Tavares to help lead a star-studded roster along with Matthews and Mitch Marner. William Nylander's holdout continues to be tracked with great interest while the emergence of Morgan Rielly and Kasperi Kapanen has been profiled to a large extent as well. And of course, we can't forget the fallout after Matthews'...

From the Broad Street Bullies, to the modern day Philadelphia Flyers, the Toronto Maple Leafs have always found trade partners in the form of their Eastern Conference foes. While there hasn’t been any action between the two teams since mid-2012, the two teams have had their fair share of dealings over the years. While we’ll only be looking at the five most recent trades between the Maple Leafs and Flyers, we will be going all the way back to 1995 to do so. With that in mind, here’s a look at the five most recent deals between the two franchises. Developing James van Riemsdyk Consider it a multi-year rental, but on June 23, 2012, the Maple Leafs acquired forward James van Riemsdyk from the Flyers in exchange for defenceman Luke Schenn. A fifth overall pick for Toronto in 2008, Schenn played four seasons for the Maple Leafs - debuting in 2008-09. While he’s never been known for his offence, his longevity and physical play is what made him stand out as a...
