As predicted by myself, the Leafs were extremely quiet on Trade Deadline day. In typical Maple Leaf fashion, fans have reacted negatively to these actions, or lack thereof, but I believe at this point in time that this was absolutely the right thing to do.
The Olympic break is over, and the home stretch is about to begin. Now is the time to put it all on the line in that last ditch effort to both make the playoffs, and make a deep playoff run as well.
With the Olympics underway, and the NHL on a 17 day break or so, it is time to celebrate how great the game is as we watch the best players from around the world battle it out for the ultimate glory. However, in just a couple weeks we will be watching as our favourite teams decide whether to add depth, rebuild, move a goalie, or make a blockbuster move before the trade deadline strikes. So who are some names to really watch out for come March 5th or maybe even before?

Talk about getting hot! Since January 12th, the first game after their 4 game losing streak, the Leafs are 9-1-1. But, with Dave Bolland on his way back from injury, will the Leafs continue to make deals? And if so, who is on their way to LeafLand?
It was not long ago that the Leafs were out of a playoff spot and looked as though they were slipping fast. Since then, the team has gone on to win 6 in a row and look really good doing it beating teams like Boston, Colorado, and Montreal along the way. The team is back in playoff contention as they sit in 5th place in the east with 59 points. The Leafs have two games left in their 4-game Western road trip, in Dallas and Winnipeg, before coming home to play 4 of their final 6 games before the Olympic break at home. (more…)
