This, in conjunction with the coaching shake-ups, amounts to a resounding about-face for the Leafs organization. I mean, just last year you had now lame-duck GM Nonis boasting about having a healthy...

I haven't actually seen the jersey; I'm taking the word of somebody I have every reason to trust at face value. The only specifics I've been told is that the new third is black and doesn't have the...

By no means do I think Steve Yzerman and Jon Cooper were merely paying lip service in lauding Ryan Callahan but both also have strong incentives to say he's the best thing since sliced bread.

Niskanen provides on-ice skills at a position the club was lacking. Callahan does not. That's the bottom-line.

That said, my preference was always Stralman because TB, even without a bona fide...

A couple things:

I really don't think Yzerman, having already acquired Garrison, would have signed both Niskanen and Stralman on July 1 even if he had not re-signed Callahan and had the extra...

They could have signed 2/3 tweener -- which, if we're being honest, is what Callahan is at evens -- for much less money and term. It's going to be hard justifying keeping Callahan in the top-6 at...

He's a value buy, for sure. He's probably not going to fly off the shelf on July 1 so, depending on how the trade and free agent markets shape up, he's a guy to circle back around to.

You mean a player's on-ice save percentage? Sure, it can be an indicator but, as I wrote in a different post, a lot of goals are the byproduct of 'puck-luck' and, as we all know, what kind of goalie...
