Toronto Maple Leafs: Expect William Nylander to Be Great in the Playoffs

The Toronto Maple Leafs are a week away from playing the Columbus Blue Jackets. The series will be a best of five, with the winner (the Toronto Maple Leafs) going on to face one of Boston, Tampa, Philadelphia or Washington. One of the reasons the Leafs can be expected to beat the Blue Jackets is […] Toronto Maple Leafs: Expect William Nylander to Be Great in the Playoffs - Editor In Leaf - Editor In Leaf - A Toronto Maple Leafs Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

Toronto Maple Leafs: Nick Robertson Appears to Have Made the Team

The Toronto Maple Leafs are not a team that is afraid to take chances. This year the Toronto Maple Leafs fired Team Canada and Stanley Cup winning coach Mike Babcock and replaced him with a rookie.  Despite pathetic attempts to run William Nylander out of town, the Leafs management held their ground and get the superstar […] Toronto Maple Leafs: Nick Robertson Appears to Have Made the Team - Editor In Leaf - Editor In Leaf - A Toronto Maple Leafs Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

Friday’s FTB: Big cat energy

Photo by Mark Blinch/NHLI via We’re pretty sure William Nylander is secretly Garfield. Perhaps sensing that we could all use a moment of true peace amidst chaos, the Athletic put out an article on William Nylander yesterday. Lasagna after dinner, sleeping in aisles and being a family man: Everything you didn’t know about William Nylander, the Leafs reclusive star. @TheAthleticTO https://t.co/8PLSpavHwz— Joshua Kloke (@joshuakloke) July 16, 2020 The entire thing is wonderful, especially Rasmus Sandin’s wide-eyed emphasis on how much Willie likes (really likes) lasagna and...

Top 25 Under 25: William Nylander is 3rd on our list, 1st in my heart

Top 25 Under 25: William Nylander is 3rd on our list, 1st in my heart

Photo by Mark Blinch/NHLI via Was William Nylander the Leafs MVP of this season? I made a mistake with my voting in the Top 25. As you’ll see below in the voting table I voted William Nylander #2 overall. I think I made a mistake. I should have voted him #1. Calm down and stop yelling. Yes, Auston Matthews is an excellent hockey player and a centre; a position that needs to be strong for teams to succeed. He’s clearly deserving of holding a top-two spot for the eight years he’ll be eligible for this list. He isn’t however, someone who can handle the spotlight, and own up to...

Traikos: Nylander facing a make-or-break playoffs with the Maple Leafs

What is William Nylander’s future with the Toronto Maple Leafs? A couple of years ago, you would have said he was part of the core. That he was a key to the team’s pursuit of a championship. That he, along with Auston Matthews and Mitch Marner, represented the Big 3 on offence. But that was […]

Top 25 Under 25: Rasmus Sandin is still the Leafs top prospect at #4

Top 25 Under 25: Rasmus Sandin is still the Leafs top prospect at #4

Photo by Frederick Breedon/ Sandin holds off Robertson to maintain his status as the Maple Leafs top prospect. There’s no denying that taking fourth place in our Top 25 Under 25 is a big deal. We voted Rasmus Sandin up the ranks to sit behind only Auston Matthews, William Nylander, and Mitch Marner. He’s now even higher than last year’s rank of #6, and maintains his spot as the top prospect on the Maple Leafs. Barely. Nick Robertson was only a fraction of a ranking point behind Sandin. Essentially, we had them tied as top prospects, but there’s a story behind the numbers. Four...

Friday’s FTB: You know who is super hot?

Photo by Jeff Chevrier/Icon Sportswire via You’ll never guess which Maple Leafs player it is. William Nylander is hot. That’s assuming he’s already here in Toronto, and I’m not sure about that. But, if he is, he’s hot because the air temperature is something like 3000 degrees outside, and it has been all week. We’re all hot! And it’s annoyingly humid too. The central air in my relatively new apartment building struggles to keep up by late afternoon. Even when I set it to high and leave it on all day long the thermostat shows the temperature still starts creeping up after...
