Ahead this week on the program, the Leafs are off to a great start – or ARE they? 4-1 through their first five games. We’ll examine whether that really should be viewed as a good start after we take you through the three games from the past week against the Flames, Avalanche and Jets in Leafs Notes to kick start the Redline Report. How should the Leafs approach the goaltending situation, where has all the secondary scoring gone, how good has Phil Kessel been? We’ll touch on those questions as well.
Wrapping the Redline Report, we look at Hockey Canada President Bob Nicholson’s suggestion that the NHL raises the Entry Draft age to 19. Back Checking brings your voice to the program with some great Listener Contributions including an all timer sighting of Jersey Guy. The Gong Banger concludes the segment by ringing in another Troubling Fact of the Week.
To wrap the program, rigamarole this week gives some perspective to the way the Leafs have started the season thus far. This is Episode 7.4 of AFITC.
