Ahead on the Christmas Edition of A Foot In The Crease, we take you through the last week of Maple Leaf action: two downright impressive games against the Pittsburgh Penguins and Atlanta Thrashers bookended by two atrocious outings against the Boston Bruins and Dallas Stars. As well we update you on the statuses of injured Maple Leafs including Mike Van Ryn, Luke Schenn, Jamal Mayers and Vesa Toskala in the Revolving Door.
Mats Sundin finally rendered a decision. We weigh in on his decision to return to the NHL with the Vancouver Canucks to conclude the Redline Report.
Listener Email, the Junior Hockey Report which includes news on the St. Michael’s Buzzers and the CJHL vs OHA Central Division “Battle of Ontario” tournament along with a fireside chat with Brampton Battalion defenseman Kyle Pereira follow in On The Bubble.
In rigamarole, we hand out glasses of holiday cheer and lumps of coal to the best and worst from the first portion of the Maple Leafs schedule.
Big thanks to Kyle Pereira of the Brampton Battalion for joining us for an interview (fireside chat) on today’s edition of the program!
