Toronto vs. Hamilton - Joe Colborne

The AHL season doesn’t really feel like the AHL season until the first edition of the AHL Battle of Ontario. And while we had to wait until early December last season, both Hamilton and Toronto will host the other this weekend.

That’s right, it’s a home and home; AHL rivalry style.

Including the two preseason meetings (which Toronto won both) the Marlies and Bulldogs will square off 14 times this season, including a pair of home & home contests.

For those who want the low down ahead of the game, here are my ...

Toronto vs Rochester - Jerry D'Amigo

You’ve waited long enough, you may have the hockey season back now.

We are all just a little spoiled, don’t you think? We were able to root for a team right through the middle of June. That said, the symptoms associated with mid-August hockey withdrawal didn’t seem any less torturous. Making us all that much more appreciative that hockey is back at Ricoh.

This should make for a fun season.

The Marlies start right where they finished last season; at home. With the opening of the 2012/13 season, Toronto will play host to ...

Toronto vs Hamilton - Ben Scrivens

Two games in three days reminds us all that the hockey season is back.

Especially when the calendar reads five days until the Toronto Marlies home opener against the Rochester Americans.

But until points start counting in the standings, the Marlies have one last game to tinker with the roster and make the decisions necessary to fill those final few holes in the lineup. Dallas Eakins will cycle out some of those who helped lift the club to a victory in Cobourg on Saturday in the first of a two-game set against ...

Toronto Marlies vs Hamilton Bulldogs

I was always a fan of TV mini-series.

A television show (sitcom, drama or otherwise) which ran a half season would consist of 13 episodes. To put that into context; including two preseason meetings, the Toronto Marlies will face the Hamilton Bulldogs 14 times between October and April. This has enough content to be a prime-time Emmy award winner.

QEW rivals Toronto and Hamilton square off in their first of 14 meetings – which also happens to kick off both of their preseason schedules – Saturday at 7:00pm in Cobourg.

Looking back over ...

Experiencing a trip to the Western Conference finals in the American Hockey League and in historical fashion announcing the Marlies as champs set up the chance to cap an unbelievable year with a trip to the Calder Cup finals. Although finishing the 2011-2012 AHL campaign short of their goal (Calder Cup championship) the Toronto Marlies had a season like none witnessed before. Here is a look back to some memorable occasions experienced during an incredible run for Toronto hockey fans.

Way back before a puck had been dropped on the 2011-2012 ...

Like you, I’ve spent a good number of hours pouring over statistics.

I’m talking every digit you could imagine.

From rookie season goal totals to penalty minutes in major junior. I’ve allowed my eyes to peruse plus/minus ratings in the playoffs and average ice time during NHL stints. I’ve compared face-off stats, penalty kill rates and goals scored while four-on-four.

One digit I cannot find ranked in a column, however, is that of chemistry. It’s an unquantifiable bond that propels lines to heights greater than ...
