Ahead this week on AFITC, have the Toronto Maple Leafs reached a new low. Three more losses this week stretched their losing streak to eight games. We’ll take you through a zero for Florida stretch and a disheartening loss to the Vancouver Canucks. Later in the Redline Report, we address comments from JS Giguere where he called out the compete level of his teammates, the possible departure of Richard Peddie from MLSE, and the new format for the 2011 NHL All Star Game.
Back Checking gets the listeners involved when we feature some great contributions received this week through Twitter and Email, one of which, dare we say, is an “Email of the Year Candidate.” The Junior Hockey Report follows with news on the St. Michael’s Buzzers and Team Canada East at the World Junior A Challenge. To wrap the segment, the Gong Banger is back for another Troubling Fact of the Week.
Wrapping the show, we turn to rigamarole and discuss whether or not Nazem Kadri’s call up was the most intelligent course of action for Brian Burke to take in order to get the Leafs out of their protracted slide. All that and more coming up on Episode 6.8 of AFITC.
