Episode 2.38 of AFITC comes your way today and we can safely say this week’s program cannot stack up to Episode 2.37. After having Matt Stajan on last week’s program, it was virtually impossible to do one better this week, so we did not even try. Such are the breaks of setting the bar high. Not to mention that there has been nearly a week since game action and as a result, in the eighty four weeks of doing this show, never before have we had such a struggle to assemble some solid content.
Nevertheless, we feature two Leaf Notes to begin the Redline Report which discuss the departure of Aleksander Suglobov and the imminent arrival of Nikolai Kumelin. The Playoff Recap discusses Game 6 of the Western Conference Final and tees up the Stanley Cup Finals. We mull over Jim Balsillie’s intent to purchase the Nashville Predators and the possibility of moving the team to Kitchener-Waterloo. To conclude the Redline Report, its Quick Hits featuring information on Jordan Leopold, Kurt Sauer, Ryan Kesler and Brian Leetch.
In On The Bubble, we have more listener email and a Troubling Fact of the Week. Rigamarole focuses on Wayne Gretzky’s unwavering loyalty.
