Blackhawks trade rumors 2017: Chicago ‘checked’ on Gabriel Landeskog, James van Riemsdyk

Blackhawks trade rumors 2017: Chicago ‘checked’ on Gabriel Landeskog, James van Riemsdyk

A couple of big names have reportedly popped up on the Blackhawks’ radar this month. The Chicago Blackhawks want to add a big-name winger, and they’ve “checked in” on the Avalanche’s Gabriel Landeskog and the Maple Leafs’ James van Riemsdyk, according to NHL.com’s Brian Hedger. Either player would definitely qualify as the kind of top talent Chicago is reportedly trying to acquire to pair with Jonathan Toews. The Blackhawks are currently leading the Western Conference standings in points, but they’re a thin team with worrisome underlying statistics. Rather than wait and see...

Could James van Riemsdyk be a Boston trade target?

Could James van Riemsdyk be a Boston trade target?

The Maple Leafs winger is arguably just what the Bruins need, and his price won't break the bank. The Bruins, it appears, are going shopping this January. Coverage over the past couple of days has focused strongly on Don Sweeney looking West for a solution to the team’s current scoring woes, with Colorado's Gabriel Landeskog the name coming up most often in conversation. There's just one issue with any negotiations with the Colorado captain. The price is absolutely ridiculous. The Avalanche asking for Brandon Carlo smacks of the kind of negotiation where the seller asks for the Earth in...

Auston Matthews currently has an eight-game point streak

Auston Matthews currently has an eight-game point streak

Of course he does. Why wouldn’t he? With yet another goal for Auston Matthews - remember when he couldn’t score? - the Toronto Maple Leafs’ leading scorer is now riding an eight-game point streak. He has 35 points in 38 games, five ahead of the second-place James van Riemsdyk. Twelve of those points have come in the last eight games. Really, the only shame about this is the four-game multi-point streak he was riding was snapped, as Matthews was held to but one goal against the New Jersey Devils. A real shame, that one. But here’s to hoping he can keep the regular point streak...

Maple Leafs trade rumors: Is James van Riemsdyk being traded?

Maple Leafs trade rumors: Is James van Riemsdyk being traded?

All signs are pointing in that direction. I love the NHL online store. It’s such a wonderful place of goofy shit no one ever needs, and jerseys, and clearance jerseys of players who have been traded or let go. I haven’t visited in a while, but someone on twitter mentioned JVR was in the clearance section and I was all whaaaaaaaaaat? Does someone in the NHL Store know something we don’t? Being the brave person to plunge to the depths of the NHL Store so you don’t have to, I jumped in. The very first two items that came up: James van Riemsdyk jerseys: Okay that horrific...

Take a walk through past World Junior Hockey glory of current Leafs players

Take a walk through past World Junior Hockey glory of current Leafs players

A lot of Toronto players have been to the WJC. Take a look at how they did. If you make it to the NHL, you were probably good as a kid, so it’s not surprising a lot of Leafs played in past World Junior Hockey Championships. Connor Brown didn’t. Tyler Bozak didn’t, but most of the rest of the top nine did. Here’s all the Leafs and Marlies skaters, when they played, and how they did: William Nylander is the champion by points per game, narrowly beating out Nazem Kadri for that honour. Kadri got a medal though. James van Riemsdyk has always been good, and Mitch Marner’s 1.20...

James van Riemsdyk is playing with Nazem Kadri tonight, and they’re having fun. James van Riemsdyk's first period assist is his 300th NHL point and his 100th assist as a Maple Leaf. #TMLtalk— Leafs PR (@LeafsPR) December 23, 2016 With this assist on a goal that was helped along by noted offensive threat Roman Polak and ultimately tipped by Nazem Kadri, James van Riemsdyk hit two milestones at once. His 300th NHL point and his 100th assist as a member of the Leafs is just a reminder to us all how good this man is. Congratulations to James, and, please feel free to make those...
