Weekend FTB: The A-Z of the 2019-20 season

Steve Russell/Toronto Star via Let’s take a look back at the year that wasn’t. Good morning Toronto Maple Leafs fans! We’re past one week of the end of the season, and we’re still working out the kinks of filling these boxes with words, minus inspiration.

Thursday’s FTB: Goals from down the depth chart

Jerome Miron-USA TODAY Sports Elites only. This is my first time writing one of these in the post-hockey world and I’m not sure how to start this. I hope everyone who is still having to go to work, for whatever reason, and especially those who are frontline workers are doing well and staying safe. I hope everyone in social isolation or quarantine is holding up ok. Ok, onwards to the distractions! Following the heels of my fellow compatriots’ retrospectives of Auston Matthews and William Nylander’s highlight reels, I thought I would dip into the Leafs depth charts for what are...

Instead of watching the Maple Leafs play tonight in their green St. Pat’s jerseys we’ll be at home drinking beer alone. But we can still all hang out here together!

I say it’s time to talk about our favourite Swede on the team, William Nylander (yes, Hardev, we know for you it’s definitely Pierre Engvall)!

Monday Chat: Auston Matthews overtime goals and Nick Robertson dogs, oh my!

Photo by Mark Blinch/NHLI via Auston Matthews has built an impressive portfolio of overtime goals in his young career There isn’t much new to talk about when it comes to hockey these days. We’re all (im)patiently waiting for the worst of the COVID-19 pandemic to pass and hoping with fingers crossed for it to happen in time to still finish the 2019/20 NHL season. So, with time to kill we might as well start treating this like a mini off-season. And with every off-season means watching older highlights you still remember fondly.
