Maple Leafs Gardiner & Brown: Will They Be Back in Blue & White?

If Scott Wheeler of The Athletic is correct, the answer to whether Jake Gardiner or Connor Brown will be with the Toronto Maple Leafs next season is a solid “no.” Jim Parsons, in his most recent The Hockey Writers’ podcast, interviewed Wheeler and what he had to say about Maple Leafs’ salary cap next season woes […] The post Maple Leafs Gardiner & Brown: Will They Be Back in Blue & White? appeared first on The Hockey Writers.

GDT: Toronto Maple Leafs take on Tampa Bay Lightning

GDT: Toronto Maple Leafs take on Tampa Bay Lightning

It’s Blue and White vs. White and Blue night. The league-leading Tampa Bay Lightning have come to town to play one of the teams directly behind them in wins: the Toronto Maple Leafs. Both sides have incredible offenses, injured defenses, and a Vezina-quality starting goaltender. Here is the preview for game #69: Zach Hyman is a game-time decision for the Leafs after missing morning skate due to an unknown issue. Tyler Ennis will skate on the top line if Hyman isn’t able to go, with Trevor Moore, Frederik Gauthier, and Connor Brown skating as the fourth line regardless. On defense,...

Why Connor Brown ‘is definitely on bubble’ with Maple Leafs

Nazem Kadri will be back in the lineup eventually, and someone will be out of a job

Nazem Kadri will be back in the lineup eventually, and someone will be out of a job

The music is going to stop and three exciting wingers will be scrambling for the last spot on the Leafs bench. Nazem Kadri is currently not playing, and has not yet practised with the Leafs on their road trip, but he looks due to come back sooner rather than later. When he does, and William Nylander converts back to a winger and pushes Connor Brown back to the fourth line, someone is coming out of the lineup. The three contenders for exciting scoring winger on the fourth line all look promising, and maybe even more than just promising. This isn’t an easy decision. But this game of...

Two things the Leafs didn’t do at the deadline

Two things the Leafs didn’t do at the deadline

Discussing a player that didn’t move, and the defence that wasn’t changed Brown Leaving Town I sincerely hope Connor Brown doesn’t search his name on Twitter. I mean, aside from the regular reasons why an NHL player should never do that, Brown has been in the unenviable situation of being the player who is included in every fantasy trade proposed by Leafs fans. It’s easy to see why. Brown is clearly inferior to Mitch Marner, William Nylander, and Kasperi Kapanen on the right side. He can play left wing, though I don’t think he can play it well; certainly, I don’t think he...
