GCL doesn't have this limitation. rogersondemand was actually forwarding free access to this last year for their cable subscribers. No word yet about this year.
When I had GCL, I would switch IPs to watch the Leafs games and then disconnect the vpn after it started playing.
Either way, both have a full refund policy if you're unsatisfied after a couple of days.
Good points, I had this last season.
Also worth noting that it's not every Leafs game, it's every game that's not nationally broadcasted. So, any games that are national on one of CBC, Sportsnet or TSN won't be broadcasted on LeafsTV Online. I believe last season it translated to around 55~ games. Better than nothing, and the HD feeds were very good quality, but yes the black border/non removable scoreboard was/is a definite nuisance.
I'm also thinking of going the GCL route for this shortened season.
