Episode 3.24 of AFITC hits the air after yet another confusing week in the land of the Maple Leafs: one win in three games but the two losses were both one goal games. Nevertheless four important points were passed up in a very tight Eastern Conference. We discuss those games and hand out another Player of the Week award in the Redline Report.
To wrap the Maple Leaf portion, we touch on two significant quotes: one from Matt Stajan and one from an unnamed NHL executive. We conclude the Redline Report by discussing Richard Zednik and his terrifying injury along with news on Rod Brind’Amour, Sheldon Souray, Hendrik Lundqvist and the first trade of note before the deadline.
Listener email follows in On The Bubble. Later in the segment, #3 Wade Belak of the Toronto Maple Leafs joins us to discuss what to expect from the Maple Leafs over the last quarter of the season, the importance of toughness, and the possibility of wearing a neck guard among many other topics. Big thanks to Wade for taking time out of his day to come on the program!
Rigamarole wraps the show and looks at why so few transactions have been consummated thus far.
