A Look Inside the Bubble

The 2010-2011 Leafs roster is anything but set in stone, and although there are several stand-outs that will, barring injuries, be wearing blue and white for the season opener against Montreal,...

Former Leafs goalie Glenn Healy, now a CBC broadcaster, loves to tweak Toronto management for its ongoing playoff failures. So he couldn't resist when Burke and he were arguing at the summit about the timing of the next World Cup, which Healy wants in February to replace the NHL All-Star Game, while Burke maintains it should be in September. "How about April in Toronto?" quipped Healy, a dig at the Leafs' rink being empty at playoff time.

Howard Berger: Doing what the Toronto Sun can't The point I’m making is that Frantisek Sr. has a wealth of hockey experience, and was certainly empowered to speak from the heart about his son last week. He probably had no idea his comments would venture beyond the Czech Republic, but nothing is sacred in the Internet era. His translated remarks were first made public by the Leafs-devoted website Pension Plan Puppets. Burke, however, would have nothing of the accusation that Tomas Kaberle and Ron Wilson are oil and water in the dressing room.

Oh Captain, My Captain! Go Leafs Go!

Now that Burkie and the Leafs Management are back from their vacation, what will happen to Kaberle? There are rumours (EK among other sources) that several teams have offers in, and there may be an offer to beat. Names like L.A., NJ, Columbus, San Jose, Washington and Buffalo come up, and also possibly something with Boston. Is he staying, is he going, or he is going, and then staying? (trade and then resign in the off-season for the duration of his career) Discuss!

I don't think this has ever been on here, but just a great story and character builder about Keith Aulie. Amazing.

Blacker inked for a 3 year entry level contract

The Leafs have inked Jessie Blacker to a 3 year entry level contract, and he will be reporting to the Marlies in the next few day. I like the kid, and expect good things from him in the future.

The Real March Madness begins!

Our Maple Leafs, along with many other teams in the NHL, are playing 16 games in the month of March. Yes, that does basically mean 4 games a week for a full month!! Stock your cupboard and be ready for some major Leaf-age!!

Blacker and Kadri named to OHL All-Star team

Congrats to two future Maple Leafs for making the All-Star team.

Help is on the way. Looks like Bozak's coming up!

If Grabbo is injured, who would your pick on a call-up be? Hanson because he's been strong when he's been up, or Bozak to see if it might get him going?

"I have no idea why they’re in the position they’re in, but I know they’re a dangerous club," Boudreau said. "They can throw guys over the boards, they can play the game. "They’re going to turn it around very shortly. Whether they’re too far (out of the playoffs) or not, I don’t know. But they’re going to be a hard team to play against in the not-too-distant future."

The Habs and Molson have hit a new low

Molson owns the Montreal Canadiens, and put out a new low calorie beer called Molson Canadian 67. Coincidence? You decide! Either way, I'm going to continue to not drink Molson.

No one a winner in Phoenix

Judge Baum has ruled, and he has denied both Balsillie's and the NHL's bids at the team. See article above for full story. It looks like Baum is basically saying that if the NHL fixes a few things in their bid, that they will most likely be awarded purchase of the team, and that Balsillie issues with relocation are too great to surpass.

Officially Calling a Mike Ulmer Boycott

Look at 2:36pm in his CoveritLive session today, and see below: 2:36 [Comment From HenkeStockholm] What is your top six defencemen for the leafs? 2:38 [Mike Ulmer] Kaberle, Komisarek, Exelby, Beauchemin, White, Van Ryn. Potential breakthrough player: Carl Gunnarson. Sorry, but thanks for a great first season last year last year, but we're really worried about the sophomore slump. You're going to the Marlies this year, Schenn. Ulmer boycott in effect!!

Healtey Traded to Sharks

See the following link for the full story, but it has been completed. Heatley is no longer someone the Leafs D will crush on a regular basis. Sens get Cheechoo, Michalek, and a 2nd in exchange for the troubled winger, along with Ottawa's 5th round pick. Post also in FanPosts.
