1st Toronto Maple Leaf Report Card for 2018/19 Season by Jamie Gilcig

The Leafs are meeting expectations for most.  They’re winning games, scoring goals, and near the top of the standings. They doing it though without William Nylander and for the last while, Auston Matthews. That certainly wasn’t expected. Most thought the Leafs would rack up points, but have issues on D.   That pretty much has been […]

Leafs & Sens Win – Nashville 2-0 vs Chicago  GAME 2 Thoughts by Jamie Gilcig APRIL 16, 2017

Cornwall Ontario – The Habs evened their series Friday night.   This year there seems to be more desperation across the board to win with multiple games of 100 total hits.  It’s good hockey; sometimes great.  Shea Weber, even though he took a lame fighting penalty, was the monster for Montreal.  Just the beating alone […]

Montreal saw some lottery tickets.    Alex Semin, Zach Kassian, and Tomas Fleischman.     While “Flash” had a good start, as […]

Lamoriello – Leafs Too Many Chiefs Not Enough Braves & Habs Like Semin by Jamie Gilcig JULY 27, 2015

It has to be a disappointing off season for Leaf fans.  Not quite as disappointing as for Hab fans, but pretty darn close. Neither team has really addressed their core needs even though both are near the Salary Cap. Dumping Phil Kessel was more of a statement than a trade and now Brendan Shanahan has […]
