Well with training camp set to open in less then 2 weeks, its a great time to get into hockey mode and and break down what the Leafs might look like for there opening night matchup against the Senators. [b][u]Goaltending[/u][/b] This position looks all settled pertaining any trades with Toskala and Raycroft heading into the opening season 1-2, Clemmensen is the curre...
The Leafs receive a second blow this preseason and have lost Kyle Wellwood indefinitely as the nifty center has surgery to repair his hernia once again the same injury that sidelined him for 33 games last season, having already lost Mark Bell to suspension the Leafs must now look within there roster and see if there is a player who could step in and possibly center a secon...

Week 1's Hero and Zero

Posted Thursday | Comments 0
I have decided to start up my own little blog entry, similar to the players of the week. Except it will be the Hero and Zero, (although I may add a couple of sidekicks for the Hero if I feel it is necessary), pretty self explanatory I think so I will just get right into it for week one.

Pens vs Leafs preview

Posted Friday | Comments 10
Perhaps the biggest thing working in the Leafs' favor heading in to this Saturday's game is the motivation that comes from an 8-1 win. Just last night, Mats Sundin also surpassed the club records for most goals and most points, 390 and 917 respectively. Tell me how you can slow a guy down after a feat like that on top of a monstrous win. I'd like to know. Let's hope, fo...

Bring Darcy Tucker West.

Posted Sunday | Comments 8
This blog has been a long time coming. But after reading the ek columns last night regarding the leafs and whether they should clean house or not... then hearing the Flames may be involved if only an e1, doesn't matter, I have to get this off my chest. I love Darcy Tucker. He's from Alberta, Castor or Byemoor I believe. Anyway, he is a fighter. He's gritty, he can sc...
Needless to say, Ferguson has left one hell of a mess in Toronto. Currently, Toronto has about 49.8 Million dollars committed to players, with about .7 million dollars left in Cap space. However, for next season, there are 19 players signed to 44 million dollars. Assuming that the cap goes up to 53 million, we will have 9 million left to ATTEMPT to get back, Sundin, Steen,...
Mats Sundin the all time Leaf scoring leader is rumoured to be willing to waive his no trade clause for certain teams in a bid to help the Leafs future, i being a Leaf fan would love to see the Big Swede return in the summer, since at this time we do not have anyone who can replace Sundin's point production, Sundin will most likely be traded along with a current roster pla...

Team To Watch: Dallas Stars

Posted Thursday | Comments 1
I'm going to be doing a series of these, with a new team each day. Today we look at the Dallas Stars, who continue their search for a scoring winger to play with Modano. This search has been ongoing for years with very little success. In the offseason the Stars tried very hard for Jason Blake and Slava Kozlov, only to lose out on both. The Stars hoped to get their wi...
As of now the Leafs are a big mess. There are 5 players on the team with No-Trade clauses. Most of them should be traded either now for teams making a playoff run, or in the off-season at the draft. Sundin should be and probably will be traded at or before the trade deadline, pick up a developed player in the league, or two, a prospect or two, and a first, and second round...
My father had a funny way of declaring how smart he was (or thought he was, depending on the situation). He would tap the side of his head and say “I knew there was a reason why I have headaches all the time.” I guess now it’s my turn, because less than a week ago, I indicated that I highly doubted Cliff Fletcher would be able to do anything of significance before ...
The Leafs lost to the New Jersey Devils twice in 5 nights, as the Devils reclaimed the top seed in the Eastern division. Kyle Wellwood logged 11:47 minutes of ice-time as he had [b]ZERO[/b] goals [b]ZERO[/b] assists [b]ZERO[/b] shots on goal and [b]ZERO[/b] points. Now it has come to my attention that he had been demoted to the third line playing with Moore and Ponikar...
With the Leafs all but out of playoff contention, Interum GM Cliff Fletcher headed west to scout talent and a pair of back to backs this weekend that may force Leaf fans off the ledge, lets turn our focus to the 'rebuild'...It has been reported that GM Fletcher has "extra" money to buy-out any contracts he feels need discarded. When the term buy-out is mentioned shortly a...
Whether you think he'll be bought out, then signed as a Free agent or traded willingly, the general feeling is that Darcy Tucker will likely end next season on a different NHL team. Moving him really doesn't free up that much cap cash, but players like Tucker can be game-breakers, and as such, retains a good reputation among NHL coaches and GMs. So, assuming there are t...
In arguably the most important off-season that Toronto will see in the 'rebuilding years' to follow, Fletcher has stepped up and pressed the 'purge-system' button. Fletcher has served notice that Darcy Tucker will be bought out, and has placed Andrew Raycroft on waivers along with teammate Kyle Wellwood and with Sundin's negotiating rights being bantered about, it is o...

TUCKER BOMBSHELL - JULY 1?

Posted Wednesday | Comments 8
I had an interesting thought today, and really don't know if it is do-able under the CBA, but would certainly be a bold move...if it were possible. This is pretty out there. Here's how it would work. Cliff Fletcher announces this week that Darcy Tucker will be bought out. Tucker is bought out and gets a nice little sum of $1 million or so a year for a few years. ...

Avs sign Tucker, Raycroft

Posted Tuesday | Comments 5
[b]Let me start by saying that I am an optimistic person by nature. I try to believe that all things will work out well in the end or at least that every situation has the potential to turn out well. As the whole hockey world anxiously awaited FAF (Free Agent Frenzy), I suggested the Avs could use some depth wingers - guys with a little heart and soul. You can't questi...
The Avalanche signed two former members of the Toronto Maple Leafs in Andrew Raycroft and Darcy Tucker who were just recently bought out of their contracts. The signing of Andrew Raycroft is, in my opinion, more about goalie coach Jeff Hackett than Raycroft. Hackett was brought to the Avs to work with Jose Theodore and bring him back on track. Both of them already worke...
Let's start off with an introduction. I haven't been on this site, and posting a blog in a while. So, the name's Johnathan. I'm a 16-year-old highschooler from Toronto, Canada. I've probably already lost credibility in saying that, haven't I? Well, how's this one - I'm writing this blog in the middle of night, my head pounding while eating a bad of Lays potato...
I have not been posting in a while. I have graduated from university, went on vacation, started my new job. But with the Avs’ training camp just around the corner I will try to write more frequently about the Avs. What can we expect from the Avalanche this upcoming season? Some analysts have already made up their mind and don’t think Colorado will qualify for the play...

5 in a row

Might as well keep the streak-in-the-title thing going. Another slow start doomed the Avalanche last night. That's the obvious newspaper take anyways, and sure it's true to a point. 0-6 on the PP is bad news though. Especially with Sakic out, this team needs to simplify on the power play and utilize the ability of guys like Smyth and Tucker. Get the puck to the net ...

Avs in the Basement

Posted Wednesday | Comments 4
[b] First of all, I want to give a shout out to the other Avs bloggers on this site - you're all doing a great job, writing nearly every game. It's nice to see some more support than we had last year. As previously mentioned, it's not real easy for me to get blogs out as I'm currently in South Korea teaching ESL to bratty little children...anyways...it's nice to be bac...
I know, I know... He's suckling a cool mil' of our hit for an eon, but nobody wanted to go down that road except the senile Cliff. Sure Darcy is on his downside but that could be a silver lining. He'd love to return to this spotlight where we would welcome him back with open arms, thus signing for peanuts. Another mil' plus what he's owed ain't bad...

Tucker-ed Out

Posted Friday | Comments 0
Darcy Tucker has officially called it a career. "After spending the whole summer anticipating I would play, it got to a point where I knew it was time." "I just knew, during workouts I didn't have that same feeling," Tucker told TSN, "and I needed to be fair with my family." Darcy Tucker had a successful career playing the role of a grinding pest. After beginning hi...
