Maple Leafs Are a Good Team…Deal with It

It has taken me a while to gather my thoughts. Unlike other writers that cover the Toronto Maple Leafs, I didn’t know what to say when I saw the news. Sure, I was excited and thrilled like every other fan in Leafs Nation, but I was left speechless as this is one of the biggest things to happen for the Maple Leafs, besides drafting Auston Matthews. When I heard the…

Danault Deal Ranks Among Canadiens’ Best

Upon signing forward Phillip Danault to his latest deal, Montreal Canadiens general manager Marc Bergevin’s work this summer may very well be finished.

Red Wings Development 2018-19: What to Expect

Unbeknownst to many Detroit fans, the Red Wings have been in full development mode since 2014. Until recently, the dirty “rebuild” word was never thrown around as much as it currently is. Rebuilding is not uncommon to any sports franchise but the Red Wings fandom today doesn’t remember (or were not alive) for the last rebuild. I wasn’t and I highly doubt many others were. Consequently, we can’t grasp the…

Colby Sissons: Dark Horse of the Devils Depth Chart

In today’s rumor rundown Jacob Trouba and the Winnipeg Jets have both submitted their ask for the purpose of salary arbitration and the two sides are far apart.
