Toronto Maple Leafs Banged Up Blue-Line Looks About As Expected

The Toronto Maple Leafs beat the New Jersey Devils last night. That’s the good news.  The bad news is that the Toronto Maple Leafs had to score a boatload of goals to do that.

Wednesday FTB: Leafs slump ‘till the Sandman he comes

Photo by Kevin Sousa/NHLI via Sandin shines, and some Leafs rumours come out We’re starting to see the future of the Toronto Maple Leafs’ blueline — both in the short and in the long term, and both in terrifying and exciting ways. With injuries to Jake Muzzin and Morgan Rielly, our uber-prospect Rasmus Sandin got back into the NHL last night against the New Jersey Devils. He had two primary assists in just over 16 minutes of play and looked pretty good the whole way. Granted, it was against the Devils who are a pretty terrible team, and his ice time was the lowest among any...

Rasmus Sandin makes some noise in a 7-4 win over Blake Coleman

Photo by Kevin Sousa/NHLI via We’re keeping him. The Devils are a team that’s in a weird place. They’re an early adopter of futility this season, in that they aren’t making the playoffs, they’ve fired their coach and their GM, and so they should just tank. But then too, the interim coach likely wants a real job, some of the players want to be traded to contenders, and the good players are too young to be jaded. So what kind of team are they? We’ll find out. First Period The Maple Leafs open the period with a lot of puck-handling, but not much shooting. Frederik Andersen...
