Toronto Maple Leafs News & Notes: February 12, 2014

Toronto Maple Leafs centre Tyler Bozak is scoring on an incredibly high percentage of his shots this year. In fact, he has one of the highest shooting percentages in the league over the last three seasons. How is Bozak scoring at such a fantastic rate? Not norm ullman breaks down all of Bozak’s goals from this season and offers a conclusion in this FanPost on Pension Plan Puppets.

Toronto Marlies defenseman T.J. Brennan is participating in the AHL All-Star Classic against Farjestads BK in St. John’s, Newfoundland tonight. With 51 points in 50 games, Brennan is putting together an amazing offensive season. So why hasn’t he been able to crack the Leafs’ roster this year? Jeff Veillette of The LeafsNation takes a deeper, analytical look at Brennan’s season, and shares some answers as to why he hasn’t been able to make the jump to the big club.

You can catch the All-Star Classic on Sportsnet One in Canada, or any of these fine networks in the United States. Game time is 6:30 EST.

NHL teams may be taking a break for the Olympics, but thankfully, Elliotte Friedman of CBC Sports isn’t. He released his latest 30 Thoughts today, this time a special Olympic-only edition. It’s interesting that Friedman isn’t as convinced as some other media members that NHL players won’t participate in the 2018 Games.

If the Leafs can continue their great play after the Olympic break, they should be something scary come Stanley Cup Playoff time. Don’t miss your chance to see this great team before its too late and get your Toronto Maple Leafs Tickets today.

The men’s hockey portion of the Olympics kicked off today with Sweden taking on the Czech Republic and Switzerland facing off against Latvia. Wannabe Canadian Sean Gentille of The Sporting News offers his medal predictions and Americans everywhere cry for his deportation.


Lastly, Don Cherry has brought Coach’s Corner to the Olympics. Steve Simmons of The Toronto Sun spoke with him about beer, Russia, Canada, beer, Russia, getting sick in Nagano, beer, stray dogs and beer. Say what you will about Grapes, but he’s sure entertaining, although he should probably cut down on all the beer.
