It’s been quite a ride, but unfortunately it has to come to an end. We started this podcast three years ago as three Ryerson University students (who didn’t even know each other) with a passion for the Toronto Maple Leafs. Fast forward and this show grew steadily and we have to thank each and every one of you who listened to us. So here it is, the final show ever of the Leafs Lounge podcast, featuring special guest, TSN Insider Darren Dreger.
You can hear our interview with Dreger at 35:10
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 the first episode of the podcast for the 2016-17 season, we discuss the positives of this Leafs team, despite so many negative storylines early on. We predict how many points and goals Matthews and Nylander will finish with and what changes the Leafs should make to their lines.
