Episode 3.37

Featuring Nick D'Agostino

The march of the Penguins has led Pittsburgh to the Stanley Cup Finals where they await either the Detroit Red Wings. We will get you caught up on all the happenings regarding the Stanley Cup playoffs in the Redline Report. Before that, we open with Leaf Notes featuring news on the search for a new general manager, Mark Bell, Kyle Wellwood, Tomas Kaberle and Anton Stralman, along with the Toronto Marlies and their continuing quest for the Calder Cup.

Quick Hits brings the Redline Report to a close as we take our final look at Team Canada at the World Hockey Championships, and touch on news regarding Ron Wilson, Martin Erat, Chuck Kobasew and Jacques Martin. On The Bubble follows with Listener Email and this week’s guest: St. Michael’s Buzzers defenseman #8 Nick D’Agostino. He’ll join us at the end of On The Bubble.

Rigamarole wraps the show with a look at why the Pittsburgh Penguins have been so dominant thus far in the playoffs and surprisingly, it is not because of Sidney Crosby or Evgeni Malkin.

Big thanks to Nick D’Agostino for joining us on the program this week! We wish him all the best heading toward the 2008 NHL Entry Draft.

Next week on Episode 3.38, we will welcome Nick’s teammate from this past season with the St. Michael’s Buzzers, #6 Brandon Burlon. In the final NHL Central Scouting Rankings, Brandon was ranked 41st among North American skaters. Among the topics we will discuss next week on the program are what it took to get to this position and what lies ahead including next season where he will be a member of the University of Michigan Wolverines and what he expects as the 2008 NHL Entry Draft draws near.
