    Toronto Maple Leafs History

    The Toronto Maple Leafs are one of the oldest and most historic teams in all of the National Hockey League. They are a part of the original six and have plenty of Stanley Cup trophies to their name throughout their history. They were founded over 100 years ago back in 1917 and have been a staple of the game of hockey ever since. 

    They have won 13 Stanley Cup trophies, but they haven’t reached the top of the mountain in over 50 long year’s at this point. Their last title came back during the mid 1960s when the National Hockey League was still in its earliest days. They have never won a Conference Championship or a President’s Trophy but they have six division titles to their name. 

    In their inaugural season of 1917-18 they brought home the Stanley Cup trophy. However, the following year wasn’t as successful as they became one of the worst teams in the league after problems with ownership and front office forced them to sell a lot of their players. Their .278 winning percentage that season is still the worst winning percentage ever recorded in a season in franchise history.

    Another decade or so would pass before the now Toronto Maple Leafs would become relevant again when the team was sold to Conn Smythe in 1927. The 1930s were a period of great success as they reached five Stanley Cup Finals in a span of seven years. However during the decade they only managed to win one Stanley Cup in 1931-32 and they didn’t win any in their five and seven year span.

    The 1940s was an even better decade than the 1930s as the Maple Leafs won five Stanley Cups during the decade and four out of the last five to close the decade out. To this day the 1940s and 1960s remain their most successful periods in franchise history and both are considered a dynasty for their accomplishments. 

    After all the highs in the 1930s and 1940s came the 1950s and it was a decade of disappointment as they failed to win a single Stanley Cup. Depending on who you ask, some fans of the team and fans of the sport will tell you that the team was cursed because of the death of a former player. If you believe in fate it just so happened that the Maple leafs won the 1962 Stanley Cup only six weeks after the deceased players’ remains were found, thus lifting the curse. 

    The Cup win in 1962 was their first of three straight and their second dynasty in the history of the franchise. They were going to win another Stanley Cup during the decade in 1967 and it has been their last ever since. It has been over 50 years since they’ve won a Stanley Cup trophy. 

    The 1970s and 1980s were a bit of a down period for the Toronto Maple Leafs as they went through a lot of front office turmoil and it showed with their play on the ice. However their lack of winning in those decades worked out for them in the 1990s when a rebuilt team helped them find success once again. 

    They made some playoff appearances but they failed to win a Cup heading into the turn of the century. The end of the 2000s in the first half of the 2010s is perhaps the worst decade in franchise history as they failed to make the playoffs several times. Heading into the 2022-23 season they have made the playoffs six straight seasons but failed to get out of the first round every year.

    During the 2021-22 season they won 54 games, finished second in the Atlantic Division and made the Stanley Cup playoffs. It all looked like it was coming to an end as they had a lead on the Tampa Bay Lightning in the first round before losing in seven games and once again finding themselves with another early exit in the postseason.

    Have a read on below at SportsTips expert picks & preview on the Toronto Maple Leafs.

    Preview on the Toronto Maple Leafs’ Head Coach: Sheldon Keefe

    A former National Hockey League player, Keefe has 15 years of coaching experience as well. Beginning his career in 2006 in the junior ranks he got his first NHL job in 2019 with Toronto. Prior to that, he was a 47th overall draft pick in 1999 by the Tampa Bay Lighting. He only played 5 years in the NHL before quickly joining the coaching ranks. His all time W-L-OT record is 62-29-12 all coming with the Maple Leafs.

    Preview on the Toronto Maple Leafs’ Key Player: Auston Matthews

    A former #1 overall pick in 2016, Matthews is heading into his sixth NHL season. Also the winner of the 2016-17 Calder award given to the rookie of the year. A prolific scorer already, he is closing in on 200 career Goals. He has scored more than 30 goals in every season he’s played for the Maple Leafs. Going along with his tremendous goal scoring ability he also has 152 career Assists, putting up at least 25 in all 5 professional seasons.

    Preview on the Toronto Maple Leafs’ Next Best: John Tavares 

    A 12 year veteran of the NHL, Tavares has played for two teams over that span. Starting his career as an Islander before moving to Toronto in 2018. He has been nothing short of great in 3 years, playing in nearly every game. Along with his dependability he has shown he can still put up great numbers. While serving as the Maple Leafs captain he has 92 Goals and 106 Assists.

    Toronto Maple Leafs Betting & Odds Preview 2022-23

    The 2021-22 season is over and we take a look back at the Toronto Maple Leafs betting history for the most recent season. We will provide more information in relation to the new 2022-23 season once information becomes available. In the meantime, have a look at the betting and odds information for the Leafs before the start of the previous season:

    It was a great year last year for the Toronto Maple Leafs as they finished on top of the North Division with a record of 35-14-7. They will come into this season looking to repeat that and win the Atlantic Division. However, it will be a bit harder for them this time around as divisions will return to their normal format and they will not be playing against other Canadian teams for the entire season. 

    They open up the season at +1200 odds to bring home the Stanley Cup trophy this season. That puts them just outside the top five in the National Hockey League in terms of odds, as they are at number six at the moment. The Maple Leafs have a star studded roster that is led by Auston Matthews, who is also a potential National Hockey League Most Valuable Player award winning candidate. 

    If they can remain healthy and break their first round playoff series curse, then this team has the potential to go far into the Stanley Cup playoffs this season. It all depends on them being able to get out of the first round for the first time in over a decade and if Matthews can continue to score goals the way he has in the past.
