Nazem Kadri Continues to Make Toronto Maple Leafs Fan Miss Him

Although he’s done a ton of tremendous things as Toronto Maple Leafs general manager, the Nazem Kadri trade will always haunt Kyle Dubas. Before we talk about his time with the Toronto Maple Leafs, the racism that Kadri and his family has had to occur this week is disgusting and there’s no place in this […] Nazem Kadri Continues to Make Toronto Maple Leafs Fan Miss Him - Editor In Leaf - Editor In Leaf - A Toronto Maple Leafs Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

Would a Youth Movement Help the Toronto Maple Leafs?

The Toronto Maple Leafs look like they have young guys ready to graduate to the NHL level… But is this really what the team should be looking for? The Toronto Maple Leafs are heading into a offseason where they will most likely have a high turnover of forwards. In need of new contracts are essentially […] Would a Youth Movement Help the Toronto Maple Leafs? - Editor In Leaf - Editor In Leaf - A Toronto Maple Leafs Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

Who is in net for the Leafs next year?

Photo by Graig Abel/ The Maple Leafs have decisions to make in net, and I miss the good old days when all we talked about were righty defencemen. Goalies. Every year it’s goalies. The single biggest thing the Tampa fanbase has going for it isn’t the Cups, the great team, the coach or any of that, it’s that the only goalie conversation they ever have to have is which comically bad veteran, good-in-the-room backup will they sign this year. For the rest of us, it’s goalies all the way down, every summer. Before I start my annual look at goalie choices for the...

A Potential Defenseman for the Toronto Maple Leafs to Trade For

This off-season,   there are changes coming for the Toronto Maple Leafs. Maybe not “blow it up” changes like some would hope but changes nonetheless. The Toronto Maple Leafs are going to keep their coach, GM and President, as well as Morgan Rielly, Auston Matthews, Mitch Marner, John Tavares and William Nylander. They just re-signed Mark […] A Potential Defenseman for the Toronto Maple Leafs to Trade For - Editor In Leaf - Editor In Leaf - A Toronto Maple Leafs Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

The Toronto Maple Leafs Have 2 x No Trade Clauses to Deal With

The Toronto Maple Leafs blue-line for next season started to take shape on Saturday when they signed Mark Giordano to a two-year, league-minimum contract extension. Earlier this year, the Toronto Maple Leafs signed Morgan Rielly to a seven-year contract extension. In between those two events, Rasmus Sandin and Timothy Liljegren had excellent rookie seasons that […] The Toronto Maple Leafs Have 2 x No Trade Clauses to Deal With - Editor In Leaf - Editor In Leaf - A Toronto Maple Leafs Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

Maple Leafs Offseason Cap Calculation

Maple Leafs Offseason Cap Calculation

Photo by Len Redkoles/NHLI via How much flexibility is there? It’s time once again to track the Maple Leafs’ offseason cap space. Why? Because although the offseason is actually six weeks away and all the current contracts are still in force, for all intents and purposes, the Leafs are in offseason mode already, so we can pretend it’s July. They can only make deals and sign new contracts they will have room for once free agency begins. CapFriendly does not track offseason space. And no, the offseason amount is not whatever CapFriendly has plus the 10% offseason...

Photo by Codie McLachlan/ Talking about the prospects that have interested me the most of late Well, the Toronto Maple Leafs have been eliminated from the playoffs again. As fans, we’ve already started transitioning to off-season mode. That means worrying about free agency, cap space, and... the draft! I want to get one more watch list out before the draft of the prospects I’ve been following and watching since my previous list. After this, I’ll start writing up full detailed profiles for my final cut , and who may be available in the Leafs’ range for their...

Toronto Maple Leafs: Qualifying Offers Will All Be Affordable

The Toronto Maple Leafs are in a very lucky spot, at least in regards to qualifying offers they’ll have to put out there this summer. Luckily for them, no single qualifying offer is going to throw off their salary cap to any great extent. In fact, the large majority will see the Toronto Maple Leafs […] Toronto Maple Leafs: Qualifying Offers Will All Be Affordable - Editor In Leaf - Editor In Leaf - A Toronto Maple Leafs Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

Toronto Maple Leafs: Could Mitch Marner Work As A Center?

Could the Toronto Maple Leafs try something bold and move Mitch Marner to center? Obviously Mitch Marner has some history as a center, albeit in his much earlier hockey years, and the Toronto Maple Leafs have John Tavares as their second-line center. However, there’s certainly elements of Marner’s game that suggest that it might be […] Toronto Maple Leafs: Could Mitch Marner Work As A Center? - Editor In Leaf - Editor In Leaf - A Toronto Maple Leafs Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

Maple Leafs have a handful of RFAs to negotiate with

Photo by Kevin Sousa/NHLI via The players on expiring deals are numerous this year. The Maple Leafs have a host of UFAs and RFAs to re-sign, or not as the case may be. Most of the UFAs seem to be unlikely to return, but the RFA picture is less clear. Teams usually re-sign RFAs when they are in the NHL. But cap constraints might make keeping some of these players unlikely for the Leafs this year. First a review of the Restricted Free Agent process. All RFAs a team intends to sign have to be issued a Qualifying Offer by the deadline, which is July 11 this year, two...

The Toronto Maple Leafs didn’t waste much time signing Mark Giordano to a two-year contract extension as they prepare for the off-season.

The 2021-22 season ended in heartbreak for the Toronto Maple Leafs. Unfortunately, it is the sixth season in a row the team has exited the playoffs early.
