Wednesday’s FTB: Who is most likely to get Tyler Ennis’d this season?

Photo by Mark Blinch/NHLI via Who gets to fill Tavares’s RW until Mitchy comes around? The Leafs are set to start another season without a star forward in the lineup. Last year it was the William Nylander negotiations which lasted all the way until December before he and his long blond locks returned for a 54-game campaign. Mitch Marner is the name of the game this time around, and despite the goal of wanting him signed before training camp, it continues to look as if this could dip into the regular season. Marner being out creates another temporary hole in the Leafs lineup that will...

NHL Players Desperate for a Good Season

NHL Players Desperate for a Good Season

William Nylander set a precedent last season by holding out on the Toronto Maple Leafs until he got a new contract. While he did get his wish, Nylander's play for the rest of the season had many questioning if he was worth the money. Nylander will be desperate to have a bounceback year to show that his holdout and subsequent contract were worth it. Plenty of other NHL players are in the same position as the Toronto youngster. Whether they need to prove they are worth a contract or are battling to stay relevant, here are four other NHL players who are desperate for a good season. Four Players...

Top 25 Under 25: Mitch Marner Cashes In At #2

Photo by Fred Kfoury III/Icon Sportswire via The prodigal son is our second-best player under 25. The top spot on this countdown was never in doubt. The second spot on this countdown was barely any less certain. Mitch Marner is this year’s #2 Leaf under 25. In past years, Marner and William Nylander have been neck and neck in these rankings—last year they finished in a perfect tie, with five voters having Nylander in second and five voters having Mitch ahead. After a late-starting, low-scoring struggle of a year for William and a supernova one for Mitch, that tie was broken into...

A true perimeter player, hugging the boards. | Rick Madonik/Toronto Star via It’s time to get the true measure of the most polarizing player on the Leafs. The Player I think you’ve all heard of William Nylander. Maybe too much after last summer, so how about a trip to the more distant past to a time before that was true? Cast your minds back to the summer of 2014. The Leafs had just drafted Nylander with their eighth overall pick after choosing Frederik Gauthier in the first round the year before. Are there two more different players on the Leafs? Nylander, not even six feet, a...
