If Justin Holl is the Leafs worst defenseman (he isn’t) then Toronto is in great shape

One of the best practices in Toronto is ignoring anything that comes out of Steve Simmons’ mouth. At worst it’s going to make you stupider, at best you’re giving attention to someone who should be fading away into obscurity. Press conferences are a different beast though, and if he actually gets called on to ask a question, we all have to suffer. That’s what happened after Game Four.

Maple Leafs' Justin Holl: Three apples keeps Wings away

Holl picked up three assists in a 10-7 win over the Red Wings on Saturday. Holl looks like a lumber truck on the ice -- slow to get rolling and hard to stop once he does. His confidence had taken several hits over the last few months, and there were plenty of rumors that the team needed a better option than him on the blue line. But Holl has started to rebound and is on a three-game, five-assist scoring streak. He's not a fantasy scorer, but Holl adds stability to the Toronto blue line.

Leafs Notebook: Justin Holl quietly stabilizing his game, Mitch Marner’s newfound goal-scoring confidence, and Kyle Dubas’ trade deadline priorities

With the All-Star break over, the stretch drive has officially begun. There is no playoff race to speak of in the East at the moment. The top four teams in each division are basically set (unless the Islanders can cash in on their eight games in hand with a big winning streak) and the rest of the season will basically be about fine-tuning, getting to the playoffs healthy, firing on all cylinders, and jockeying for position in the standings.

Maple Leafs Have Questions to Answer With Justin Holl

Toronto Maple Leafs’ defender Justin Holl has not had the type of season general manager Kyle Dubas expected when he went the route of protecting four forwards and four defensemen, instead of protecting seven forwards and three defensemen for the Seattle Kraken expansion draft. He left unprotected newly-acquired Jared McCann (Seattle’s selection) and forward Alex Kerfoot, specifically to protect Holl.
