Ahead this week on AFITC, just when the Toronto Maple Leafs start to convince people that they’ve turned a corner, reality snaps back in a hurry. We’ll take you through two wins over the Florida Panthers and Carolina Hurricanes as well as an abyssal effort against the Buffalo Sabres to kick start the Redline Report. Mike Brown resigns, will Clarke MacArthur soon follow? We’ll discuss those two players who have been among the few consistent performers for the Leafs this season.
Are the Leafs taking the best course of action with the development of Jerry D’Amigo? We’ll address his status before spinning through the Revolving Door and wrapping the segment with Quick Hits on Evgeni Malkin and an NHLPA poll that left some dubious results for the Leafs. Back Checking brings Listener Contributions, the Junior Hockey Report and a not-for-the-faint-of-heart Troubling Fact of the Week.
To wrap the program, rigamarole looks at the core of the Maple Leafs and explains why Brian Burke’s rebuild, so far, has been a bitter disappointment. Toronto’s schools were shut down on Wednesday due to snow. For the record, if we had planned to do a show that day, the snow wouldn’t have stopped us. This is Episode 6.20 of AFITC!
