Named after former Toronto Maple Leaf great Bill Barilko, the Barilkosphere is a network of blogs and websites devoted to bringing you the news, information and opinion (and lots of it) regarding the Leafs you crave as a fan. This feature is dedicated to bringing you the best of the Barlikosphere every day except Sunday. So sit back and relax, pour yourself another cup of Joe and enjoy today’s round of fresh links.
A post from a little while ago that serves as a good rundown of the Leafs’ offseason to date. From Down Goes Brown (click through for full post on Grantland).
A lot of former Leafs to reminisce about on this list. Another DGB post on Grantland.
There’s been a lot of talk of Rob’s new book lately, and it says some pretty interesting things about the Leafs. Cam Charron makes a pretty good case for it on The LeafsNation.
Duchene is definitely one of the “good guys” of hockey. From Wayde Greer of SLAM! Sports.
Another highlight-reel pass from Tie’s son goes viral. And the shot from McDavid ain’t too bad, either. From theScore.com.
The offensively inclined 17-year-old has a lot of room to grow. From clrkaitken of Pension Plan Puppets.
