Episode 7.17

The Gong Banger's Strike

Ahead this week on the program, the Leafs took three of four games this week heading into their week long All Star break. We’ll take you through those games against the Minnesota Wild, Montreal Canadiens and a pair against the New York Islanders to kick start the Leafs Notes portion of the Redline Report.

Later, John Michael Liles re-uped with the Leafs for four years? We’ll weigh in on that deal as well as exploring whether it’s time to look at extending another pending unrestricted free agent: Jonas Gustavsson.

Wrapping the Redline Report, Tim Thomas said no to President Obama’s invitation to the White House. Disrespectful? Off base? We’ll give you our thoughts before jumping into Back Checking with Listener Contributions from Twitter and Email as well as a Troubling Fact of the Week featuring Alex Ovechkin.

Rigamarole concludes the show with a look at the stark contrast between the way the Leafs went into the All Star Break last year compared to this year. All that and more coming up on Episode 7.17 of AFITC.
