Anaheim Ducks’ 5 Worst Trades in Franchise History

With the trade deadline once again here, the Anaheim Ducks find themselves in unfamiliar territory. The team will be bonafide sellers for the second year in a row and already got the ball rolling by sending Ondrej Kase to the Boston Bruins last week. We’ll have to wait and see how that move turns out, but there are plenty of trades that haven’t worked out for Anaheim. Here are five trades that we’ve labelled as the worst of the worst. 5.

Kings may have already made their biggest trades as NHL deadline approaches

With the NHL’s trade deadline Monday, the Kings and their general manager Rob Blake expect to be fielding calls and making inquiries up until the noon Pacific cutoff time for trades. “(Teams) tend to wait to make sure if they’re completely in (the playoffs) if they’re going to give up assets,” Blake said in a phone call earlier this month, adding that the accumulation of cap space for prorated salaries was also a factor in trades materializing near the last moment. The Kings have clearly identif...

Carolina beats Toronto 6-3 with help of emergency goaltender

David Ayres was sitting in the stands with his wife at Scotiabank Arena when Carolina Hurricanes goalie James Reimer went down with an injury. The on-call emergency netminder in Toronto, Ayers left his seat and got half dressed into his gear on the off chance something might happen to Carolina's second option, Petr Mrazek. What he didn't realize was Mrazek had been hurt in a scary collision with Maple Leafs forward Kyle Clifford and was down on the ice.

Maple Leafs Have Goaltending Options and That’s a Really Good Thing

It’s been an up and down the past few weeks for the Toronto Maple Leafs. The team rifled off three straight wins following the All-Star break, including an impressive 5-3 victory over the Dallas Stars, and all signs were pointing to a strong stretch run into the playoffs. That sense of excitement was quickly put to rest, though, following a 3-5-1 run where they were outscored 25-33. No matter how good your offence is, you aren’t going to win very often when you’re allowing close to four ...

Maple Leafs Have Good Options for Barrie at Trade Deadline

In a July 1 blockbuster trade that sent Nazem Kadri, Calle Rosen, and a 2020 third-round draft pick to the Colorado Avalanche, the Toronto Maple Leafs acquired Tyson Barrie (50% salary retained) and Alexander Kerfoot. Barrie has been a polarizing player all season long. Underutilized by former coach Mike Babcock, Barrie put up terrible numbers to start the season. In 23 games (under Babcock), Barrie scored zero goals and added only seven assists, on pace for 25 points over a full season, by ...

Maple Leafs News & Rumors: Muzzin, Andersen, Malgin & Barrie Trade?

What an odd game this hockey is. Two teams played on two nights and looked like two completely different teams each night. I’m sure that sounds confusing, but on Tuesday night in Pittsburgh, the Toronto Maple Leafs were simply steamrolled by the Penguins by a 5-2 score. Two nights later, the Penguins were completely overwhelmed by the Maple Leafs by a score of 4-0. The teams completely switched roles and results.

Remembering Borje Salming: “King” of Maple Leafs’ Defensemen

Borje Salming played 16 seasons for the Toronto Maple Leafs from 1973 to 1989. In his more than 1,000 regular season games (1,099 to be exact), he scored 148 goals and 620 assists for 768 points. More remarkable, he ended his Maple Leafs career with a plus-minus of plus-155. What makes that high plus-minus so remarkable is that, during his last ten seasons with the Maple Leafs, the team was horrible, seldom close to having a winning season. During the 1976-77 season, Salming set career highs ...

Islanders Have Long Struggled With Prospect Development

The New York Islanders have plenty of handpicked talent through the NHL draft in their line-up today. Mathew Barzal, Brock Nelson, Ryan Pulock are a few stand-out names that have found success at the NHL level, and are a core of this Islanders group. However, dating back to 2011, there have been some major swings and misses in drafting and developing “high-end” prospects. And unfortunately, some of those players have moved on from Long Island, and have found success with other NHL organizatio...
