A man decided to wear a Toronto Maple Leafs jersey to Tuesday's Tampa Bay Lightning-Dallas Stars preseason game. That led to the Stars video board operator to perfectly trolling the fan with a meme. Next time, wear a jersey—or shirt—of one of the teams that is actually playing in the game. [Imgur, h/t Reddit]Read more NHL news on BleacherReport.com

There was a lot of hype for Finnish forward Petri Kontiola going into the NHL preseason. After all, he had been a force for Metallurg Magnitogorsk and Traktor Chelyabinsk over the past couple of seasons, not to mention a strong point producer for the Finnish national team at three different levels in 2014. All signs pointed to him making the Leafs roster, with people slotting him anywhere between fourth line centre, and second line right wing.However, once it came time to hit the ice, the results weren't what everyone had hoped. He wasn't as involved in the play as he needed to be, and he was sent down to the Marlies, leaving many to wonder how he would react. Today, we got some answers from

One of the tricks of the season-preview business is that you always start at the bottom and work your way up, building suspense along the way. That’s the basic approach we’ve taken for our NHL preview; on Monday, we covered the Bottom-Feeder Division, and yesterday it was on to the Middle-of-the-Pack Division.By the end of that second post, we’d covered half the league. And when it went up, fans of the teams that hadn’t been mentioned yet were thrilled. Clearly, this meant their teams were considered Stanley Cup contenders. Celebrations broke out across the hockey world.1Not so fast.Today we introduce the “Your Guess Is As Good As Mine” Division. These are the teams that are expe

Elliot Friedman has his 30 thoughts that came out yesterday and in it, he explains that the Leafs have been shopping Carter Ashton to see if they can get a pick rather than lose him for free on the waiver wire. Ostensibly, this is because they are keeping Colton Orr and/or Fraser McLaren on the roster. This closely mirrors what happened last season, whereby Joe Colborne had a lacklustre camp and he was sent to The post Wednesday Mashup: Bye Bye Carter? appeared first on Maple Leafs Hotstove.

In May of 2013, I wrote an article on Dion Phaneuf and his play when the team is leading vs when they are trailing. It presented a pretty compelling case that Phaneuf is a significantly better player when the Leafs are trailing, a situation in which he is given a more offensive role. Today I will update that article while looking at some new statistics. Background I recently posted an article on how to conduct a WOWY The post Dion Phaneuf – Leading vs Trailing Part II appeared first on Maple Leafs Hotstove.

BozFeed: 9 Carlyle Pictures Made Better With Jaden Smith Tweets

Randy Carlyle has been somewhat of an enigma during his time as the Leafs head coach. Often we find ourselves asking "What is he thinking?" Alas, I am not the one to provide answers to that question, instead I've turned to possibly the greatest philosopher of our time, Jaden Smith. His tweets seem to perfectly capture the inner thoughts of a man who thinks helmets cause concussions, almond butter is one of the great evils in the world, and that toasters are beyond understanding. That being said, not all of Jaden Smith's tweets work for Carlyle Pay Attention To The Numbers In Your Life They Are Vastly Important.— Jaden Smith (@officialjaden) February 4, 2014 but you'll see that at least 9
