Fantasy Season in Review: Toronto Maple Leafs

Offensive Corps: Although he missed the first twelve games of the season, the offense revolved around right wing Phil Kessel. At first, critics thought the Leafs lacked an appropriate playmaking center to compliment Brian Burke’s shiny new toy but at season’s end Matt Stajan and Tyler Bozak proved to be just good enough to keep…

Giguere Turning Over a New Leaf

Jean-Sebastien Giguere shutout the Atlantic Division leading New Jersey Devils last night, effectively placing him back on the fantasy radar.  This transition should be no surprise as we listed him as a winner of the recent blockbuster trades due to an increase in playing time. The problem for the Leafs this year would be keeping…

Under Review: Armageddon Edition

In light of Sunday’s bombastic pair of trades between the Toronto Maple Leafs and the Calgary Flames/Anaheim Ducks (and a decidedly light week on other ‘big issue’ NHL news), it struck me as necessary to dissect the re-landscaping nature of the deals pulled by Burkie and Co. The facts: on Sunday morning, Brian Burke announced…

Fantasy Winners & Losers in Pair of Blockbusters

Toronto Maple Leafs GM Brian Burke officially made two deals today.  The first sends Ian White, Niklas Hagman, Jamal Mayers and Matt Stajan to Calgary for Dion Phaneuf, Keith Aulie and Fredrik Sjostrom.  The other sends Jason Blake and Vesa Toskala for Jean-Sebastien Giguere.  What does this mean for your fantasy team?

Goalies on the Hot Seat: Maple Leafs

Continuing a feature we’re going to look at frequently this year, which goalies are getting the majority of starts and who’s job is in jeopardy? Green means the goalie’s job appears safe, yellow would mean they are yielding more starts to their competitor than normal, red means the starting job appears to be more dependent…

Should Ron Wilson Be Fired?

It’s officially that time of year where expectations and hopes have turned to wins and losses, and for some teams just losses. Although it’s still early the Maple Leafs have not looked anything like the team that will contend for the playoffs and be defensively sound. They’ve looked like a team tanking this season for…

“Weeks” for Vanek, Liles, Toskala and Salo Injuries

We’ve already seen Andrei Markov go down early in the season, then we learned about Johan Franzen and Daniel Sedin going down over the weekend.  Now, you can add a few more injuries that could possible affect your fantasy rosters.  Unfortunately it’s a little too early to tell the extent of the injuries but we’ll…

What a preseason that was but what does it tell us?  Toronto and Vancouver are most likely to meet in the Stanley Cup Finals and Pittsburgh will be a cellar dweller?  Hardly.  At least the player performances and roster cuts give us an idea of some interesting goaltending situations to look at entering the 2009-10…
