Episode 2.44

The Season Finale

Forty four weeks in a row, forty four shows and with that Season 2 of AFITC comes to an end. On today’s episode of the program, we evaluate the signing of erstwhile Devils netminder Scott Clemmensen, discuss the benefits of the Maple Leafs possibly adding a senior executive to their management team and look over the key dates in the 2007-2008 schedule for the Maple Leafs. The Redline Report continues with Quick Hits where we examine the signings of Sidney Crosby, Bill Guerin, Mike Comrie, Sean Hill, Hendrik Lundqvist, Brendan Shanahan and Sheldon Souray. We also look at the unhappiness of Alexei Yashin and the two coaching positions filled this week: John Paddock in Ottawa and Brent Sutter in New Jersey.

On The Bubble features our final segment of Listener Email this season with comments from Travis, Andre, Alan, and Aaron. Rigamarole looks at the “Thomas Vanek Affair.”
