Coaching Colleagues Expect Krueger to Thrive & Adjust With Sabres

Questions Remain For The Toronto Maple Leafs

from Steve Simmons of the Toronto Sun, The Babcock situation is not the first priority on Dubas’ busy summer schedule, but it is a priority of some kind. While the assumption is Babcock will return as head coach, there may be some staff changes or internal alterations to aid coaching in the future — and some conversations about how Babcock can move forward as a coach. Dubas won’t say it out loud, but he couldn’t have been happy with Babcock’s playoff performance, as many weren’t. When...

How Are Things Going In Toronto?

from Lance Hornby of the Toronto Sun, On a sunny September day in his Scotiabank office, amid high hopes of a new season, the glow of the John Tavares signing and more riches to reap from young stars, we asked Kyle Dubas about where coach Mike Babcock fit in. “He’s an elite coach and I expect an elite performance from him and his staff,” was the direct reply from the new general manager.

In a series full of questions, Maple Leafs' Babcock short on answers

Mike Babcock has done a lot of good things as head coach in the National Hockey League and elsewhere. A second Game 7 loss in as many years against the Boston Bruins on Tuesday night only added to Babcock's (perhaps notorious) inability to push Toronto into the deep waters of the Stanley Cup Playoffs. How does Auston Matthews play just 15:18 of five-on-five time (18:48 total) in a game where the Bruins led 2-0 after the first period?

It’s that time of the season. Once again the Toronto Maple Leafs are heading to a Game 7 to play their arch-rival Boston Bruins. Recent history suggests the Bruins will have an advantage because the Maple Leafs seem to crash and burn in Game 7 road contests. For those who cover the Maple Leafs, there seems to be a lot to be critical about. Frankly, most of the Maple Leafs’ coverage has been negative. Related – Maple Leafs’ Management: Trouble in Toronto?

Maple Leafs & Bruins: What to Expect in Game 7

It seems somewhat inevitable – a Game 7 between the Toronto Maple Leafs and Boston Bruins – and this year’s playoffs are no different with the two clubs staring down the deciding game yet again in the first round. While the Bruins are a very similar team to the one that beat the Maple Leafs in last year’s postseason, Toronto has changed somewhat significantly with more speed and less grit defining the lineup they’ve iced so far in this year’s matchup with their divisional rivals.

Auston Matthews At The Top Of His Game

from Michael Traikos of the National Post, A year ago, Auston Matthews went into the playoffs saying he wanted to be like Jonathan Toews and Sidney Crosby. Forget about the regular season, he said. He wanted to be one of those players who make a difference — and a name for themselves — when the games really matter. Then the Toronto Maple Leafs went out in the first round in a series in which Matthews was ineffective and underutilized, prompting head coach Mike Babcock to travel to Mat...

Maple Leafs’ Kapanen Trying to Stay Positive

BOSTON — Playoff success came early for Kasperi Kapanen.
