The Toronto Maple Leafs represent the city of Toronto, Ontario, Canada in the NHL and are members of the Northeast Division of the Eastern Conference. The Maple Leafs are part of the “Original Six” members of NHL and were founded in 1917. They currently boast 13 Stanley Cup championships, second only to the Montreal Canadiens’s 24. The last time the Maple Leafs won the Stanley Cup was in 1967 and the current 46-year drought between Stanley Cup championships is the NHL’s longest.
The Toronto Maple Leafs will look to improve from the 2011-12 NHL season where they finished fourth in the Northeastern division and failed to qualify for the playoffs. This offseason has been all about the goaltending situation for Toronto, with names currently being tossed around that include LA Kings backup goalie Jonathan Bernier and veteran Dominik Hasek, who will be returning to NHL after a season in the KHL. With already two young goaltenders on their roster, the Maple Leafs will likely be looking for a veteran like Hasek to provide experience to the position. It’s still too early to tell who will be the starting goalie in Toronto but within playmakers like right winger Phil Kessel and defenseman and Captain Dion Phaneuf, the Maple Leafs still have a lot of talent. Kessel led the team in goals, assists, and points last season and he is clearly a vital part of the Maple Leafs’ offense. Phaneuf, along with alternate captain Mike Komisarek, will once again help to provide the Maple Leafs with the dominating defense that they strive for. The 2013 NHL season will likely see a considerable improvement from the Toronto Maple Leafs and you are not going to want miss it.

The Air Canada Centre in downtown Toronto has been home to the Maple Leafs since 1999 and has a capacity of over 18,500 for hockey games. The Maple Leafs’ archrival is the Montreal Canadians and the rivalry between the two is often called one of hockeys greatest.
