We revisit the expansion draft discussion from last year and discuss which Leafs players we would protect and which we would expose. We also analyze the recent play of Jake Gardiner after being paired with Connor Carrick.
We debate Frank Corrado’s place on this roster and whether it is time to trade James van Riemsdyk for an established top 4 defenceman. We also discuss the Seth Griffith roster move and tee up James Reimer’s return to the ACC.
This is the first and only political episode of Leafs Lounge but because of its significance, we briefly recap our thoughts on the U.S. election. There is some Leafs talk too, beginning around the 17:15 mark, about the play of the Leafs rookies and their defencemen in the past week, as well as the coaching decisions by Mike Babcock. Let’s make the Maple Leafs great again!
On this episode we discuss Nazem Kadri’s impact on the Leafs and what he has to do to continue being effective. We also break down the Leafs defence issues and take a look at some of the similarities between the Chicago Cubs and the Maple Leafs, since this podcast was recorded on the day of Game 7 of the World Series.
