Is Alex Galchenyuk good enough to be the upgrade John Tavares needs?

Photo by Derek Leung/ Has the top-six hole already been filled, or is it still the best place to improve?

The Toronto Maple Leafs sent two AHLers to the Hurricanes (ha, irony) for the 2012 third overall pick after clearing...

Galchenyuk Looking to Prove the Toronto Maple Leafs Right

Since that fateful trade, Galchenyuk is now suiting up for his fifth NHL team in […] The post Alex Galchenyuk Is Finding His Game With the Toronto Maple Leafs appeared first on Last Word On Hockey.
