A pair of Toronto Maple Leafs fans sporting aspirational jerseys were spotted at the Erie Otters-Ottawa 67s game on Sunday afternoon. While most fans of the Blue and White have been getting attention for tossing their sweaters on the ice as a form of protest to express displeasure with the backsliding Maple Leafs, these kids donned homemade name bars that signalled perhaps a silver lining amidst the Leafs’ struggles: the chance to snag No. 1 draft prospect Connor McDavid.

With the Toronto Maple Leafs in the midst of a nine game losing streak, there is a great deal of speculation that General Manager Dave Nonis and the Buds will be sellers before the March 5th NHL Trade Deadline. The Maple Leafs may want to get a jump on the other teams and start making moves sooner rather than later.

There was more excitement in the first five minutes and 22 seconds of the Oilers-Flames game than the entire sixty minutes in the Maple Leafs game last night. Despite out-shooting and out-chancing the Philadelphia Flyers, the Toronto Maple Leafs were handed their ninth straight loss as Steve Mason paced his squad to a 1-0 shutout win.

The Flyers came in to Saturday’s game against a desperate Toronto Maple Leafs team. Steve Mason shut the door on the Leafs, handing them their ninth straight loss and the Flyers fourth straight win. A Michael Del Zotto goal was all the Flyers needed in the 1-0 victory.

It's a lazy Sunday so let's reflect back on the Leafs [loss/victory] from last night. Oh Man, what a game last night. How do they do it? Those players and their goals and passes and body checks and things. Okay, I wrote this way in advance of the game, but in fairness to me, there's no way I'm going to be up at 7AM on Sunday after starting my hockey game at 11:15PM on Saturday. Stupid children taking all the good ice time. Here are you links hastily jammed into here at 2AM after I've showered and wait for the sweetness of sleep to make me flop over on the couch.

Toronto Maple Leafs: Struggling to win without Randy Carlyle

I never thought I would say this, but it actually looks like the Toronto Maple Leafs are worse without former Head Coach Randy Carlyle. The Leafs relieved Carlyle of his coaching duties on Jan. 6, making Assistant Coach Peter Horachek the interim head coach. At the time of Carlyle’s firing, the Leafs were 4th in the Atlantic Division with a record of  21-16-3. While this isn’t a terrific record by any means, they also led the NHL in goal scoring, racking up 130 goals in 40 games, while allowing 121 goals. Since Horachek took over the Toronto bench, the Leafs have gone 1-9-1, scoring 14 goals and allowing 34 goals. The Leafs current record is a disappointing 22-25-4, bad enough for 24t

The Leafs got shutout by the Flyers. The Leafs got shutout by the Flyers. The Leafs got shutout by the Flyers. The Toronto Maple Leafs struggled offensively against the Philadelphia Flyers. No, seriously. The lone goal scorer was Michel del Zotto. No, really. Watch the game in six if you don't believe it: Some rough thoughts on players: I thought Holland had a really strong game tonight, was often in the right place in the right time, had some speed, and had a couple good zone entries. Kadri was creative and had a couple good opportunities (include  a great doorstep chance where he was shut down by Mason). Rielly played like a man possessed in his last few minutes of ice time.
