The drafting differences of East Side vs West Side

I understand TSN's point here when they're comparing the two teams, which is the noticeable discrepancy of draft picks accumulated from 2003 to 2011. Basically, the author illustrates that T...

During the draft you could have ended up in Toronto or with the Islanders... Of course, I've thought about that and about what it would have been if i was there. Also considering that many 20-year guys are already playing twenty minutes a night there. Of course I think about it and it makes me feel bad. Nikita Filatov Just a random, nothing quote I found about Filatov after a month or so playing in the KHL. Obviously, his behaviour is flaky, but Toronto's "rebuild" era isn't going unnoticed amongst European prospects.

Could the Kessel trade be the worst in NHL history?

22

According to Associated Content Sports, the Leafs certainly have committed the worst trade ever. The author's knowledge of the Leafs is limited at best, however, that hasn't stopped him from writing several "Haha, LEafs r Sux!!1" articles and hosting several others. It's just an incredibly asinine article that is passed off as hockey coverage.

Canucks GM Mike Gillis isn’t allowed to discuss the $25,000 fine levelled against Leafs coach Ron Wilson by commissioner Gary Bettman, but several league executives are shaking their heads and some see it as a joke. Penalties for tampering include loss of draft picks and a fine of up to $1 million. Wilson stated the Leafs’ interest in pending UFAs Daniel and Henrik Sedin during a radio interview before July 1 and all the organization got slapped with was a lousy fine? "We talk about tampering all the time and it’s supposed to be dealt with harshly," said a league executive ...

And the whining continues. Aww, boo hoo. The big bad Leafs are so mean!!!

Tampering charges against the Leafs resolved

103

And the result? The Leafs were fined for the comments made by Ron Wilson, but were just verbally reprimanded for the latest charges regarding the name-dropping of players in the draft. I wonder how long the league had to stifle their laughs when they had to seriously deal with the accusations lobbied by the Canucks. After all. for the Leafs to commit such an egregious act bordering on a massive conspiracy, a team actually needs to care about the opposition. Somehow, I doubt anyone taking the Vancouver Canucks all that seriously.

It was a weird night for everyone considering the uncertainty about Doc Halladay's future, but I thought I share some levity regarding last night's game as I sat behind the Jays bullpen. Edit: Sorry about the above pic, it comes out larger here - http://bit.ly/MAUUb

CBC feature on Nazem Kadri

Hey, guess what? Another Muslim angle by a mainstream media regarding Kadri! Whew, we haven't seen one of those since yesterday. Still, it's a nice piece about Kadri and his impact beyond the Leafs.

"As for the Leafs, how can I not still feel it? Those days in the old Maple Leaf Gardens are forever. That rickety old place, those black-and-white pictures hanging everywhere, the Gondola and remembering Bill and Foster Hewitt speaking from up there. "Those were the greatest days. And every night I go home, I can't help it – I'm always watching out of the corner of the eye, checking how the Leafs are doing. It's who I am."

Admittedly a bit "fluff" on Bruce Boudreau, but it was a nice piece with a Leafs connection for someone doing his best to put the Capitals on the map

Tlusty has picture perfect game

Our favourite amateur hockey player/photographer, Jiri Tlusty scored a Toronto Marlies record five goals in an 8-5 victory over the Syracuse Crunch earlier tonight.

Mt. Rushmore for the Leafs

11

This has been making it's rounds around the web, but who would your "Mt. Rushmore" be for the Leafs? My three locks would probably be Teeder Kennedy, Syl Apps, and Dave Keon. As for the fourth, I'm having trouble deciding between Wendel Clark, Mats Sundin, Borje Salming, and Darryl Sittler mainly.

"I've already been offered a top-five pick for Luke Schenn," Burke said of the rookie rear-guard, who was named first star in Saturday's 5-4 win against the Pittsburgh Penguins. "But I'd have to be crazy to move him. It's sort of similar with Kaberle."
