Not long ago I cited a number of hockey and Maple Leaf blogs that I enjoy a great deal. These include:
Leaf Nation online (http://leafsnationonline.com/ has been around for a year and is now broadening its horizons. I'm assuming it's connected at the hip with the companion site at http://theleafsnation.com/
Joe Pelletier’s Greatest Hockey Legends at http://www.greatesthockeylegends.com/ This is an excellent hockey site, with articles on often little-known hockey facts and special people and moments.
Leaf fans pretty much everywhere know about Pension Plan Puppets (http://www.pensionplanpuppets.com/ ). I’m sure thousands of people stop by the site daily for all kinds of information, funny stuff and stories from a host of solid writers, with assorted Leaf news and updates.
Maple Leaf Hot Stove at http://mapleleafshotstove.com/ is a highly worthwhile hockey site with a wide range of writers, views and opinions and thoughtful Leaf perspectives pretty much daily.
I also very much enjoy the work at We Want a Cup http://www.wewantacup.com/ . Matteo and crew do an excellent job all-around. As I’ve mentioned in the past, the front page alone makes it a 'must visit'.
I’m sure just about every hockey fan knows about Down Goes Brown. People have long loved his unique work online and at now the National Post. Sometimes he joins forces with the always-entertaining Bloge Salming site at http://www.blogesalming.com/.
Long-time former NHL goaltender Phil Myre always brings his “been there” perspective at http://www.philmyretalkshockey.com/.
Puckin’ eh is an excellent Leaf site that I always enjoy, too, at http://puckineh.com/.
Regular readers have heard me mention Preds on the Glass in the past. It remains an outstanding hockey site that brings us up to date on virtually all things hockey every day throughout the year at http://www.predsontheglass.com/.
If you love outstanding photographs of hockey new and old, you’ll never want to miss http://vintageleafs.blogspot.com/.
A relatively new blog worth checking out is OT Winner. That blog can be found at
There is so much good (so-called) “non-mainstream” media work going on, it’s impossible to list all the really fine sites. And I’m sure there are many outstanding ones that I’m not even aware of.
My question for you today: which Maple Leaf and hockey sites do you like best, or simply enjoy visiting on a regular basis.
What’s most important to you—breaking news, humor, a thoughtful approach, current Leaf analysis?
