Well now that Connor McDavid's contract is all wrapped up over in that winter wasteland of Edmonton, and the Leafs own Connor Brown has been signed to a very palatable deal. We can start to focus on Cap hits for the Toronto Maple Leafs, and what will happen during the next wave of contract signings here in the...

August 10th, 201702279The Introduction
For years the Maple Leafs farm system was looked at in two very conflicting regards. One, by Leafs nation, as always having a superstar talent waiting in the ranks to help the team “get over the hump”. The other, a widely held perspective, that the Leafs were not a serious competitor and their best prospect would...
August 7th, 201701236The World Junior Showcase is an excellent opportunity for players to make their mark for when the World Junior Championship rolls around in December.

The Skinny: Here we are, the last men standing. We've done all the talking and assessments are made. Now it's up to you who you see as the Toronto Maple Leafs 6th defenseman on opening night. The well rounded and seemingly NHL ready Travis Dermott versus the PP skills and large frame of Andrew Nielsen. Both 2015 draft choices, one a...

The Skinny: The easy decisions are made. Now you have to weigh age, ability, merit, development path, and all in all making the club better. With Dermott and Borgman, both make an interesting case as to why they're ready for the NHL. Conversely, both are open to arguments as to why they are not. For Borgman, without seeing his game...

The Skinny: Is Andrew Nielsen a better prospect with more of a future with the Leafs than Martin Marincin? I'd have to think so, but that's merely my opinion. The real question here today is if you are the GM of the Toronto Maple Leafs who do you have higher on this seasons depth chart. I don't want to sway voting but do you want...
