Ahead this week on AFITC, a third of the way through the season and the Maple Leafs find themselves in a playoff spot. And they didn’t even trade for Roberto Luongo. Surprised? Shocked even? We’ll answer that question as well as look at why things have gone right, if it’s time to change the perception of the Leafs goaltending and what to do with a glut of defensemen.
Back Checking gets the Listeners voice onto the program as we check in with some emails and tweets. The Gong Banger is along as well later in the segment to ring in another Troubling Fact of the Week.
Rigamarole wraps the program as well with a look at arguably the biggest question that Dave Nonis and company will have to answer in the coming year. Also in this episode, we’ll make an announcement about the future of the podcast. You know “the nobody on the ice until the zamboni doors are completely closed” rule in minor hockey, well it doesn’t apply in the NHL. This is Episode 8.2 of AFITC.
