http://www.LeafsVideos.com presents “While You Were Gone”. While James Reimer was hurt, Jonas Gustavsson and Ben Scrivens had to keep the Maple Leafs up in the standings. Through hardwork and dedication, they were successful in giving the Maple Leafs a fighting chance.
http://www.LeafsVideos.com presents its 2nd tribute to Jonas “The Monster” Gustavsson. With all the talk and hype on James Reimer, “The Monster” has been quietly improving his game for the 2011-2012 season. With Jean Sebastion Gigeure on his way to the Avalanche, Reimer and The Monster will have to stop the world.
LeafsVideos.com presents its sixth compilation video. Tim Brent worked his way up through hard work, dedication, a will to compete and sacrificing his body to win games. His work has not gone unnoticed as we put a spotlight on his strong play for the 2010-2011 season.
LeafsVideos.com presents coverage of the LeafsTV Brian Burke Press Conference. The Toronto Maple Leafs have traded Tomas Kaberle to the Boston Bruins for Joe Colbourne, 1st round pick, and a conditional 2nd round pick.
The Toronto Maple Leafs have signed former Atlanta Thrasher Clarke MacArthur to a one year contract at $1.1 million. Clarke MacArthur was awarded $2.4 Million from an independent arbitrator, however, the Thrashers walked away from it.
He is a 25 year-old Left Winger from Llyodminster, Alberta, who scored 16 goals and 19 assists in the 2009-2010 season with both Buffalo and Atlanta.
It will be interesting to see how he fits in with the rebuilding Maple Leafs.
The Toronto Maple Leafs have acquired Defencemen Matt Lashoff from the Tampa Bay Lightning. Matt Lashoff is a 23 year-old native of East Greenbush, New York. He is a former 1st round pick (22nd Overall) in the 2005 Entry Draft (From Boston). He has played in 63 NHL games and will add depth to the Blue Line for the Marlies.
The Leafs give up 24 year-old Alex Berry and and 22-year old Stefano Giliati. Both players have yet to play in an NHL game.
The 2 for 1 trade will give Brian Burke more roster room to bring on new players.
Can you believe all the drama that has happened with this all star defencemen? All the blogs have talked about it and probably the whole hockey world is sick to their stomach about this topic. So it is only fitting that I write a blog about it. Let’s face it, Brian Burke wanted the world for this guy and he didn’t get it. I commend him on sticking to his word and not letting him go for nothing. We will now go into training camp with a solid blue line. This will give an OPPORTUNITY for the young Leafs forwards to show up and EARN their spot on the roster for opening night against the Habs. I truly believe the competition will be fierce for the top 6 spots. There will be players that will show up and think they have a guaranteed spot only to have their ego busted and bruised and find themselves in the press box. So let the Grabovski’s of the world fight for his spot and most likely punch someone if he doesn’t.
I don’t want to predict my line up for opening night just yet, however, I am calling it now that Tyler Bozak will be our #1 centre. You can see it in his eyes that he wants it more than anyone. He has heart, passion and a will to compete, he will show the NHL that he belongs at that spot. Youth is going to take us to the next level. T-Bo is the present and the future of this team, and he will make an impact NOW. Wait for it…Wait for it…and go…
First blog on LeafsVideos.com. I hope you enjoy the compilations that I have made for you Leafs fans. There will be many more to come. The 2010-2011 season is coming, and coming fast. What is the number one topic that is trending for the Toronto Maple Leafs? Of course, long time favourite, Tomas Kaberle. A special puck moving defencemen who makes one of the finest first passes in the game. Ask any Leafs fan about whether they would keep him or trade him and you will get a different answer every time. So what does the future hold for Kaberle? I think people are asking the wrong question. The question should be, what does the future hold for the Toronto Maple Leafs? Regardless of whether we trade or keep Kaberle, the Toronto Maple Leafs win.
Trade – Brian Burke has had as many as 6 offers for his prized defencemen, however, he has held back, patiently awaiting an offer that makes sense for his hockey club. He has made it clear that this is not an auction, he will only pull the trigger if he can get his top 6 forward. Names such as: Drew Stafford, Devin Setoguchi, Ryan Malone have been thrown around yet nothing has happened. What is realistic? You could go to any Maple Leafs message board and look at all names that the faithful would hope for such as: Bobby Ryan, James Neal and Ryan Clowe. The possibilities are endless, and we will all wait with the rest of the hockey world to see if Burkie can get it done. It is almost a guarantee, if Burke does not trade Kaberle, he will remain a Maple Leaf for one more year.
No Trade – If he cannot pick up a ready-to-play Top 6′er for Kaberle, than Burke will hopefully resign the 32 defence to a home discounted price and let the man finish his career with the team he started with. The Toronto Maple Leafs will have a rock-solid blue line, with Ron Wilson being able to choose who the best of the best is. With Phaneuf, Schenn, Gunnarsson, Beauchemin, Komisarek, Lebda, and Finger, you could have one of the scariest blue line in the Eastern Conference (assuming all are healthy and ready to have the year of their lives). Brian Burke has publicly stated that he would love to keep& resign Kaberle, he is a one of a kind player and can do wonders for a team.
