Ahead on Episode 3.43, the penultimate edition for Season Three of AFITC, we bring you up to date on a variety of Maple Leaf roster moves made in advance of the kick off to free agency on July 1st. GM Cliff Fletcher continues to live up to what he said back in January about significant changes before next season. We will tell you who is gone and who can still expect to call themselves a Maple Leaf come September.
Quick Hits features lots of news regarding the Tampa Bay Lightning, news from Anaheim including Scott Niedermayer’s decision for next year and a departure from the Ducks, a new contract for Jeff Carter, a trio of signings in Calgary and San Jose, a pair in Colorado and two departures from Ottawa. On The Bubble features Listener Email and the return of the Gong Banger in the Troubling Fact of the Week.
Rigamarole concludes the show by cautioning the Maple Leafs as to why it would be a good idea to tread carefully once the free agency market opens for business.
As we approach the end of Season Three of the show with the final episode to be released on July 6th, we would like to get your input for the AFITC Year End Awards in the following categories: Whipping Boy of the Year, AFITC Leaf Player of the Year, Email of the Year, Emailer of the Year, Rigamarole of the Year and Guest of the Year!
