The Maple Leafs losing streak reached seven games with a loss Saturday night in Detroit. There was no heart, no determination, no passion all week long but that is anything but an accurate way to describe Episode 2.14 of AFITC.
We cover the Maple Leafs’ three disappointing results this past week against Atlanta, Boston again and Detroit. We tell you who has spun back into the Revolving Door and discuss some of the reasons for this stretch of deplorable hockey in What To Be-Leaf. Joe Nieuwendyk called it a career this past week and we pay tribute to his career in the Redline Report as well. The schedule format is still on the minds of many and we take an in depth look at the decisions that came out of this week’s Board of Governors meetings. To conclude the RR, we look at how Peter Schaefer’s towel waving gesture may be more than just an isolated protest but rather an indication of what is becoming of the officiating in the NHL.
On the Bubble features another shocking story of indifference to hockey in the Southern US as well as an outstanding portion of listener email. Our listeners are not happy with the Maple Leafs play of late and they tell us all about it on the show.
Rigamarole discusses the age old question of whether stars get different treatment than average players, an issue brought back into the light over the past week.
