Toronto v Hamilton - Scott

So the doctor walks into the examination room with a concerned look on his face and says “I’ve got good news, and I’ve got bad news; which should I start with?”

The Good News:

The Toronto Marlies announced their five and a half secured home dates for the upcoming 2012/13 season.

Five and a half, you say?

For the second straight season the Marlies will invade Air Canada Centre ice for their annual Boxing Day game. It’s not technically at home, but Ricoh regulars don’t exactly have to travel all that far – and […]

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 […]

2011 NHL Entry Draft - Brian Burke

I was told a funny story the other night about time capsules.

Enamoured with the idea of uncovering forgotten treasures at a future time, a younger version of a close friend teamed up with a neighbour to begin burying pieces of their life. As the story goes one capsule turned into three; which turned into seven; which then evolved into more than a dozen.

One weekend of fervour resulted in holes all over the backyard, each with its own piece of the day buried in the earth.

This process is not unlike the […]

Marlies Bench

Anyone can read a stat sheet.

Living in Toronto has taught me that much.

Likewise I have also learned that anyone can tell the time, but only few can fix a watch.

I always found it interesting that goals and assists were both worth one point on the stats sheet. Don’t get me wrong, it did me wonders when playing hockey. I could put up three points in a game on secondary assists alone. Though when analyzing a team’s success – especially as they venture further down the playoff road – a goal […]

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 […]

As we head into the Marlies opening game of the second round of Calder Cup playoff action against the Abbotsford Heat, I thought it was a good time to play a little game called ‘When’s the Last Time.’

It’s pretty simple, actually. I will rhetorically ask a question starting with ‘when’s the last time…’ and then post the answer. There’s really nothing to it. And since – much like a grade 11 math textbook – the answer is provided for your reading pleasure, it means all of […]
