May 15, 2022 – For Leaf nation it’s essentially like living in the movie Ground Hog Day. A really good team racking up the points during the regular season and failing for the sixth year in a row to move forward. Frankly Leaf fans deserve better. Connor McDavid put on a show leading his team […]

HOCKEYCRUNCH – Can the Habs Make the Playoffs? By Jamie Gilcig

September 26, 2021 – It was an amazing finish to a frankly disappointing season last year.
