Reimin' It Up

Posted Monday | Comments 0
*I'll be honest, I don't even know what the hell this title even means, but it gave me a chuckle, so I hope I get a cheap laugh out of ya'* You know what really grinds my gears? James Reimer has been a forgotten player amongst the Leafs' prospect cupboard. Take a look at his statistics throughout his career thus far: [b]Red Deer Rebels (WHL) [/b] 2005-06: 34 ...
Nothing has ever come easy to Jonas Gustavsson in his hockey career. He has had to work for everything that he has achieved and has strived to prove naysayers that he is capable of being a starting goaltender in the NHL. After displaying a dominant performance in his final season with Farjestad of the Swedish Elite League, which included a 1.96 goals against average, 0....

The Morweena Miracle

Posted Thursday | Comments 0
The Morweena Miracle – By Ty Dilello A Google search of Morweena, Manitoba does not tell you much. It is a small Mennonite village just outside of Arborg and about 150 kilometers north of Winnipeg with a population of around 150. It is also home to James Reimer, the very humble goaltender who led a late season charge that almost sent the Toronto Maple Leafs to the pl...
As we move closer to the draft, Brian Burke and Dave Nonis are working hard at keeping our team competative and the fans as a side effect are gleaming with hope and pride. James Reimer evoked something that sits inside all leafs fans and up until last year, had been lurking in the depths of our collective stomachs, waiting to be unleashed. As we sat and watched the relat...
Hey all, Now, I realize that with a bit of common sense and realistic expectations it's pretty easy to take a stab at what the Leafs will look like next season. Yet I frequently see people making odd guesses/ projections for the team to then defend themselves till their blue in the face... So I'm just going to write down the lines I believe most likely to be put out...
Maple Leafs fans we are just a few weeks from training camp, thats right Leafs Nation just a few weeks away from September and another run by our beloved Buds to end this playoff misery that we having been suffering from since the end of the lockout. The Leafs have made a few changes from the club that ended the season in April: In: Tim Connolly, Matthew Lombardi, Co...
I have a few predictions, some realistic, some fun and outlandish, for the Leafs from now till the end of next season. Enjoy! 1) Komisarek is gone, he will be traded. If the asset is a 7th rounder in 2015 I think the Leafs accept, and someone will give up a 5th for this guy in next years draft. 2) Kadri will end up on a line with Kessel and Connolly and have 60 p...
As we start to ramp up for another action packed NHL season we also start to see/hear the many couch experts (myself included) start offering their opinions and projections for the race to April and what it will bring. Who’s going to jump out early.. who’s going to suffer the xmas slump.. Who has all the pieces to go all the way? It is worth noting that it is always su...
While neither goalie has proven themselves to be a top flight NHL starter, there is a twist to the story. Reimer, once thought to be nothing more but a future backup goalie is the Leafs number one guy. Monster, once thought to be their future number one goalie is starting to look like nothing more then a possible back up. My question is, Do you think Monster can s...
It's always amusing when the media is really eager to jump all over any negative stat out there, and at the same time ignore some positive ones. Everyone knows the Leafs penalty kill is struggling and regardless if they win, it will make headlines the next day if they allow even a single power play goal – as was the case after Tuesday’s game vs. Carolina. What's puz...
Last nights match, although tough to bear at some points, was one of the more entertaining games I have seen from the Leafs in a while. There were a lot of positives coming out of the game, but the negatives were the same as they have been for the last few years. I prefer ending on a good note, so let’s start with [b]the bad[/b]: 1) Not my biggest beef with the t...

A Ring around the Goalie

Posted Thursday | Comments 0
The Maple Leafs have done a complete 180 degree turn from their usually post lockout performances and that is not a good thing Leafs Nation. The club has gone 4-6-2 since the all star game and an even worse 1-6-1 in their past 8 and as February 24/12 comes around the club looks like they will be sitting in a familiar spot post lockout..... out of a playoff spot. The clu...

Vokoun -The Next Leaf

Posted Friday | Comments 0
Vokoun is no longer welcome in Washington. Not because of his play (which has actually been just as excellent as his time in Florida), but simply because it's a numbers game. It should be pretty clear to everyone in the hockey world that Vokoun took a large salary cut to play for a potential cup-winning team instead of sticking it out with his bottom of the heap Florida Pa...
For my first crack at blog writing in some time, I thought I would simply put together a list of my thoughts on the Leafs. 1. Nazem Kadri is in no way the bargaining piece Brian Burke would have us believe he is, nor is he the super star the Leafs need. In fact, I would argue that if he does not piece together the defence side of his game soon - and that includes limiti...
Maple Leafs Game Recap 1/23 Maple Leafs 5 @ Penguins 2 Make that a second straight road win for the Maple Leafs, both spoiling the opening night festivities in Montreal and now in Pittsburgh. As I wrote in my first Maple Leaf entry the other night against Buffalo, many questions will be answered in this shortened 48-game schedule. Tonight, was one game for example,...
Maple Leafs Recap: 1/26 @ New York Rangers I am not going to beat a dead horse from Thursday's game against the Islanders. I didn't get to see much of the game, but saw enough as Scrivens allowed several more easy goals between the legs. Toronto had built a 3-1 lead all to be completely destroyed due to a spotty defensive effort and poor, inexperienced goaltending. ...

Great Character

Posted Friday | Comments 0
The leafs really showed some character last night. they looked as though they were going to give in about halfway through the second period, but they managed to take complete control in the third and won a decisive victory. The young guns are firing on all cylinders as the goals were scored by; JVR, Kulemin and matt Frattin iced the game again for the leafs. I reall...

5 Thoughts on Game Day

Posted Monday | Comments 0
#1. The Bryzgalov everyone in Philadelphia expected back in June 2011 seems to have finally surfaced and is putting up solid numbers so far this season (2.27 GAA, .921 SV%). It has been 9 games since Bryz has let more than 3 past him and he has been more solid than the Flyers 5-6-1 record would indicate. On the other side of the ice the James Reimer that Toronto fans saw a...
[b]February 10, 2013[/b] [i]Maple Leafs 5, Flyers 2; Kings 4 @ Blues 1[/i] What can I say, the Maple Leafs are on fire right now! And the Kings actually looked like a championship caliber team. First, let's begin with the Kings who needed a good performance after yesterday's killer defeat. Darryl Sutter finally played Jonathan Bernier, who helped give incumben...

Rubber Buds: Leafs/Isles

Posted Thursday | Comments 0
The young Toronto Maple Leafs look to bounce back from another disappointing effort when they take on the New York Islanders on the island tonight. There is a lot of talk about the reffing in last nights game against the Canadiens with a terrible call on a Mike Brown hit in the 1st period that saw the Buds down a man for 5 mins, and Brown ejected from the game, as well ...
[b][i]Three Games, Three Cities, Four Nights; Could have been worse...[/i][/b] [u][i]Maple Leafs 4 @ Philadelphia Flyers 2[/i][/u] After suffering a bad loss in Ottawa on Saturday, the Toronto Maple Leafs headed to Philadelphia to take on another 'Jekyll and Hyde' type of team in the Flyers. Philly continues to struggle in their own zone keeping teams from scoring...
[b]March 4th[/b] [b][i][u]Maple Leafs 4, New Jersey Devils 2[/u][/i][/b] For forty minutes, it was men against boys. James Reimer was sharp, but still was beaten four times; twice by Marek Zidlicky and twice saved by iron. Forty minutes, it was the defending Eastern champions against the adolescent Maple Leafs, a team who had not made the playoffs since 2004. ...
[b]March 6th[/b] [u][i]Maple Leafs 5, Ottawa Senators 4[/i][/u] This game came down to goaltending, and clearly James Reimer was the better netminder at his end of the ice, turning aside 38 of 43 Senator shots, helping the Leafs hang on to a 5-4 victory over their provincial rivals. I recent years since the arrival of Reimer, I am sure all Leafs fans out there are...
[b]March 21 [i]Sabres Steal Key Point from Lazy Leafs[/b][/i] Before I get into this one, I just want to make one thing clear about both of these teams on the ice; all weaknesses were greatly magnified throughout this game. The Buffalo Sabres and Toronto Maple Leafs are two teams going absolutely nowhere this season. Both teams are lazy, they cough the puck up at ...
[b]March 24[/b] [i][b]Maple Leafs 3, Boston Bruins 2[/b][/i] Perhaps the Maple Leafs caught a break facing Anton Khudobin instead of Tukkka Rask? Be as it may, Khudobin came into the game with a 6-2 record and a sparkling 2.14 GAA and a save percentage of 92.5%. Toronto also may have caught the Bruins at a good time, as Boston played with some inexperience on its ...
I have to agree with what a lot of hockey analyst's are saying. The Leafs are a team still in re-building their winning ways and striving to make the playoffs in 8 years. Why risk that and make a trade for Luongo. He is a number 1 goalie but he has those streaks where he STINKS he really STINKS, not to mention the size of his contract. The Leafs looking to be h...
[b]May 19[/b] Now that my heart and soul has recovered somewhat from the Maple Leafs' monumental game 7 collapse in Boston, I think I can finally chime in with some post-series comments. First of all, give the Maple Leafs all the credit in the world for bringing out the best in the Boston Bruins. As I originally predicted, I thought Toronto would have been lucky enou...
[i][b]June 21[/b][/i] The first official day of summer brings joy to many. School is finally out. The Stanley Cup playoffs are in full swing. Baseball season is hitting its serious curve. But yikes, another Toronto Maple Leaf offseason is about to get underway. And from the sound of things, I am getting a bad feeling in my gut. With the numerous reports ...
The next Maple Leafs season is fast approaching, with only 42 days until the season opener, and a mere 26 days until the preseason, we keep wondering who will be our number one goaltender and be in goal for us throughout most of the season. Here's why Reimer will be number 1, while Bernier is yet again going to take the backup position. Bernier, with his 1.88 GAA, and 9...
When the Leafs acquired goaltender Jonathan Bernier from the Los Angeles Kings this past summer, two things were made clear by this move. One, the Leafs would have one heck of a goaltending duo this upcoming season—and two, the Leafs will more than likely have a goaltending controversy on their hands at the end of all of this. I've always said its never a bad thing to...
A wise man once told me that history is bound to repeat itself. This is the main reason why many Leaf fans have stayed loyal. For us, the loyal Blue and White army, we still believe history has proven we will move back into supremacy. Now I'm not here to begin blowing the horn of victory just yet. But, the masked men in between the pipes have begun to show us the capabilit...

Scrivens a Saviour?

Posted Thursday | Comments 0
Hockey fans who fancy fantasy leagues or the L.A. Kings may have found a place in their hearts for a new goaltender. Ben Scrivens has been stellar since arriving in California, starting in only 6 games but allowing only 9 goals. He has been very impressive, recording 3 shutouts so far this season. This is tremendous news for Kings fans, as Jonathan Quick is expected to ...
[b]December 3[/b] [u]Undermanned Maple Leafs Unable to Sink Sharks[/u] The first big test of a tough and critical stretch of games for the confidence stricken Toronto Maple Leafs came tonight at Air Canada Centre against the San Jose Sharks, perhaps the best team in the NHL at the moment. To be quite honest, the Leafs played a strong game despite being dominated f...
[b]March 27[/b] It has been a while. There really has not been much to talk about, except watching the Toronto Maple Leafs revert to a team who plays with little clue of how to play the game of hockey. The team refuses to keep things simple. They have also tuned coach Randy Carlyle out completely. It has also become very evident that the seven year extension for pse...
Many different opinions circled around after the Flames draft. Was it underwhelming? Was it a success? A failure? Did the Flames only draft on size? Why a Goalie? The reality is that despite our individual opinions, these kids are Flames now. So lets look at them and make some comments. [b]Sam Bennett[/b]: I obviously watched the videos and read all of the scoutin...
The Leafs adding David Booth was a great success. T.O. needed another left winger, and snagged a decent one at a very modest price tag. Admittedly, Booth struggled to produce with the Canucks, but if he can reach the stats he found during his time with the Panthers he can be a dangerous player for the Leafs deep into their line up. Reimer re-signing,especially with the ...

Posted Wednesday | Comments 0
[b]follow me on Twitter at: https://twitter.com/DailyNHLGrind[/b] The Avs held on for as long as possible in Toronto but we're unable to come away with a victory. On their 40th shot of the night the Maple Leafs came away with a 3-2 overtime win off of Phil Kessels stick The game started off the right away for the Avs. Right off the opening face off Duchene drew a pen...
