Kyle Dubas says it's Toronto or nowhere
In a somewhat shocking turn, Kyle Dubas came out and said that he will either return as GM of the Leafs or he won't be working anywhere. He said that this season has been taxing on him and his family, and they will discuss his future in the coming days.
Maple Leafs players face the press
All the player interview videos from the final media availability of the season.
We ask the big questions and give our best answers before we have any idea of what to base them on. As is tradition.
Just the Facts
You need some facts before you fantasy trade all the Leafs for stars on other teams. And yes, you could just look this up on Cap Friendly, but here's some things you need to know.
A blog post about the offseason
After game three of the second round, when the Leafs had played very poorly for three straight at a very inopportune moment, I went back and read two things from the end of the Montréal series. Both were about Mitch Marner.
Recap: Maple Leafs fight hard, fall to Panthers
Florida wins it in overtime. This is how it happened:
GDT: Round 2, Game 5 - Leafs vs Panthers
We know the Leafs can win an elimination game, they've done it before. That's just science.
GDT: Round 2, Game 4: Leafs on the Brink
Are the Leafs really on the brink of a long fall, or are they actually at the bottom of a long climb? I don't think that's a question of pessimism vs optimism or realism vs hopium. I think it's a question of point of view.
FTB: Blue Monday
After opening overtime with 13 or 14 icings, the Leafs gave up a goal to the other Sam, as Reinhart played the hero.
Think fast, Leafs, you're almost out of time
I don't know what to think about the Leafs, this series or anything about the playoffs right now. I'm not very optimistic, but I've never been more irritated by outlandish performative pessimism.
Matthew Knies to miss rest of Round 2
The diagnosis is concussion, and the prognosis is at least two games missed, likely more.
Sam Bennett fined for cross-checking Michael Bunting
That should read, fined for cross-checking Michael Bunting in the head.
Round 2, Game 2 Recap: Leafs hoist with their own petard
The Leafs defence looked exposed and fragile in Game 1. And it also looked like it was on the forwards to fix that. Well. They fixed it all right.
Prospect Playoff Schedules
The late April and early May schedules for the Maple Leafs prospects in the playoffs.
Round 2 Game 1 Preview: Maple Leafs host the Panthers
It's a well-trodden path, but new to this New Maple Leafs team. The second round is where you find out if the naysayers were right, and your first round win was one of those random events hockey is famous for. The Maple Leafs believe they are where they should be. But so do the Panthers.
PPP Roundtable - Catching up with everyone
We talk about what we did last weekend, and our plans for this week.
Maple Leafs vs Panthers starts Tuesday, May 2
This is too soon, we haven't even stopped celebrating beating Tampa or stopped laughing about Florida beating Boston long enough to consider that Florida might be pretty good. We aren't ready!
PPP After Dark: Bears and Panthers
Bruins-Panthers Game 7 is on at 6:30 tonight, and we can watch the Leafs' next round opponent be revealed.
7 Things I Think About Round 1
Guess who: I like his commitment to his bit – which is to walk the miscreants away from the crease like he's the bouncer in a club in the wrong part of town. I like his point shots, and also that he knows he's on the Leafs now, and he should use them sparingly. I like his defensive awareness too.
Reaction to the Win
This post is just tweets of videos. It will break your phone if you didn't already throw it in the air when Mr. John Tavares esq. scored that goal.
Recap: Maple Leafs Going to Round 2
It is fitting that the only goals in regulation were scored by Steven Stamkos and Auston Matthews, the two best shooters in the game (NHL?). Overtime decided a contest of intense, grinding effort from every player on both teams. This is how it happened: First Period Tampa takes the first
GDT: Maple Leafs back in Tampa

Round 1 Game 6 Preview: Leafs @ Lightning
The Leafs lead the series three games to two and have two more tries at closing out this first-round series. As was clear last night, most series in this year's first round are tough contests going to six or seven games to solve.
Round 1, Game 5 Recap: Lightning over Leafs
Andrei Vasilevskiy plays his best game of the playoffs to take the series back to Tampa Bay. The Maple Leafs can't convert on their chances, and struggled, albeit a lot less, at what we used to call driving play. Auston Matthews tried his best, but he couldn't do it twice in a row.
