Ahead this week on AFITC – the Goalies Gone Wild Edition – we’ll start with a look back at a busy week for the Toronto Maple Leafs that saw them play four games and endure their first major trade of the season. The details on those games as well as who’s in, who’s out and what it all means are along to kick start the Redline Report. Some injury notes follow in the Revolving Door before we conclude the segment with a look at a potential feud between Ron Wilson and Phil Kessel along with another major trade from the Nation’s capital.
Later in Back Checking, Listener Contributions feature some of your thoughts on the trades made by Brian Burke and Bryan Murray and two great emails from Alan and Aaron on the sudden outbreak of goonery in the NHL. The Junior Hockey Report updates you on two St. Michael’s Buzzers games and the Gong Banger stops by to ring in a goon themed Troubling Fact of the Week.
Rigamarole wraps the show with a look at why the mountain is likely too tall to climb for the Maple Leafs to reach the playoff summit. Alex Rodriguez was caught on camera at the Super Bowl with Cameron Diaz feeding him popcorn. While some said it was a moment of embarrassment, I say for any regular guy, being seen having Cameron Diaz feeding you popcorn would be a major accomplishment. This is Episode 6.21 of AFITC.
