There have been plenty of great trades in NHL history. The problem is that when one team experiences the results of a great trade there is often a team on the other end left shaking its head. For every outstanding NHL trade, there have been some equally abysmal ones. Here’s a look at the worst.

Toronto Blows It in 1990

The Toronto Maple Leafs have not won a Stanley Cup since 1967. There are plenty of reasons why and one of them happened in 1990. With the Leafs off to a poor start in the 1989-90 season, Toronto general manager Cliff Fletcher felt Toronto needed more defensive depth. He decided to trade the Maple Leafs first-round pick in 1991 to New Jersey for Tom Kurvers.

When a team has another team’s number, it means that one team usually wins the head-to-head matchup. In the case of the Boston Bruins versus the Toronto Maple Leafs, the Bruins own the Leafs’ number. Whether it is in the regular season or playoffs, Boston has routinely dominated Toronto physically and mentally.

Playoff History

With apologies to those in Leafs Nation who may read this column, there is no better place to start than in the year 2013, when chronicling the Bruins and Leafs rivalry. Toronto had brought Boston to the brink of elimination in their 1st round matchup during the 2013 Stanley Cup Playoffs. The Leafs were leading 4-1 in the 3rd period of the 7th and deciding game of the series. All indications were that if Toronto could hang on for roughly 8 minutes more, they would have eliminated Boston, and all the talk about being

Monday, February 24th, is the NHL trade deadline. Fans and media will gather around their televisions or mobile devices, hoping to witness all of the action. Which teams are buyers (teams in search of players), and which are sellers, (teams that are getting rid of high-priced contracts and talent)? Which teams are in the hunt and looking for that championship piece(s)? What NHL teams are trading away their talent, playing their young talent, essentially tanking their season, in order to land that high draft pick?

Did you hear that? That was a huge collective sigh of relief by Toronto Maple Leafs’ fans. From the puck drop on opening night of the 2020 regular season until now, Leafs Nation has not so quietly been expressing their frustration with how the team started the season. Toronto currently has a record of 21-14-4, good for 46 points, and 7th place in the Eastern Conference. Therefore, the overwhelming concern for the team’s well-being is extremely premature. If the playoffs were to start today, the Leafs would face a very familiar foe in the 1st round in the Boston Bruins.

The race to lift the 2020 Stanley Cup is now picking up steam approaching the All-Star break in January. Trades, demotions, free-agency, all occur in an effort of making a successful run through the playoffs. 12 games is what one team out of 31 in the NHL must win in order to lift the Holy Grail of Hockey. The Washington Capitals, St. Louis Blues, Boston Bruins, Toronto Maple Leafs, and Tampa Bay Lightning, all made the playoffs last season. It is these 5 teams that are most likely to contend for the Stanley Cup, but how each individual team will get there may not be so obvious.
