Get Back On The Bandwagon! - Season 3, Episode 007

In this short episode Dave and Chris jump back on the bandwagon as the Leafs go 7-3-1 since our last episode. We talk briefly about the wins of the 3 weeks we didn't have a show and get into the recent resurgence in Vesa Toskala's game. He seems to be winning back the fans. His only recent losses are to the well oiled Boston Bruins and the once Leafs prospect Tuuku Rask. Wayner calls in and gives us his picks for the renaming of NHL trophies. He was right on the ball with some of them, but not to worry he was out to lunch on the Jack Adams. Have a listen and see who Wayne thinks the Jack Adams should be re-named after. The Wayne's Word was a disappointment this week but fear not, we'll zing him next time.

Leafs Season Week 7 in Review - Season 3, Episode 006

It's the Dave and Chris show, and until Brian finishes all his remodeling of his new place it's gonna stay that way. This week we talk about the Leafs inconsistency in play. The week of point streaks followed by 4 losses in a row and an awful lose to the Hurricanes. You can hear the dispair in their voices as they grasp for something, anything positive to say about the Leafs latest performances. It's a rough go of a show that not even Wayne's Word can cheer up. If the show seems to be as inconsistent as the Leafs play, be encouraged to know that we will soon be back in the swing of things now that all the moving is done, (almost).

Leafs Season Weeks 4-6 in Review - Season 3, Episode 005

This week Chris, Dave and Dan discuss the Leafs first win of the season and the dismal chance of them reaching the .500 winning percentage. We talk Toskala, head shots and other stuff that I can't remember because this show was recorded a month ago and is just being posted thanks to the lack of a computer and the incompetence of Future Shop. Episode 6 will be posted also which was recorded 3 weeks ago... We also jam a Wayne's Word in there somewhere. I wouldn't blame you if you don't listen to this one, it's too old to bother.

Leafs Winless Season Continues - Season 3, Episode 004

Practice! Practice! Practice! That's all the Leafs did all week and only Dave and Chris are there to talk about it and for some reason almost run out of time doing it. Newsflash; the Leafs lost to the Rangers! We also discuss the many woes of the Leafs and what they can do about them. After 3 seasons it's starting to get hard to find something to talk about a team that continues to disappoint. We also discuss the 3 on 3 tourney that the boys in blue had in good ol' Richmond Hill. We talk about the rest of the league and the surprise starts for Colorado and Phoenix. We wrap it up as always with Wayne's word and the best goalie in the NHL's name gets butchered. Have no fear there will be 4 games for us to discuss next show and maybe there will be a win among them.

Leafs Season Week 2 in Review - Season 3, Episode 003

Massive traffic on the 401 makes this a shortened episode, but not short enough as the guys are disgusted by the Leafs play and don't want to talk about it. But we do. Loses to the Pens, Rangers and yes, the much underestimated Avalanche are worrying Leafs Nation as they go 0-5-1 to start the year. Will the Leafs get even one win in October? We also dive into dodge ball and talk about what fun game we'd like to play to loosen things up. Dave votes for elephant polo. We talk about what the boys in blue can do to turn it around....(shrug) Finally we get Wayne on the ringer and he pulls out his 3rd correct spelling much to our amazement. Have no fear though, things get funny when we ask Wayne to role play as Brian Burke and he gives a rousing speech to the gang.

Leafs Season Week 1 in Review - Season 3, Episode 002

Panic on the streets of Toronto! Hang the GM! Hang the GM! Hang the GM! Hang the GM! (it's a Smiths song parody) This week the guys discuss the Leafs abysmal first week of the season and the widespread panic in Leafs Nation. People are ready to jettison Toskala and Wilson after only 3 games. The first game may have been exciting against Montreal but things got worst as they were shellacked by the Caps and then we were bored to death against our rivals in the nations capital. We also discuss the Leafs tampering charges and the hatred between the city of Vancouver and Toronto. It's War! We also talk goalies around the league and not to be missed is Wayne's Word. Check out our new and improved website and vote on weekly subjects regarding the Leafs. Also join our sporting news pool!

Leafs and NHL Preview!

Season 3 is here! We were lazy bums during the summer but were back! In this episode we discuss all the changes around the league. Chris says some stupid things, Dave says some stupid things and Wayne definitely says stupid things. Thankfully we had Dan, he thinks before he speaks, so he didn't say stupid things. Most importantly we talk Leafs and the excitement that is brewing in the T dot and of coarse we have everyone's favourite; Wayne's Word!

The Better Late Then Never Episode - Season 2, Episode 020

Apologies but this episode was recorded almost 3 weeks ago but because of a busy schedule, the economy and many factors both home and abroad....... oh, who are we kidding, we've just been lazy as of late. It's been so long we don't even remember what this ones about (except that Jamie is on as a guest and is brutal), if you don't listen we wouldn't be surprised. We have one more episode coming up to wrap up the season and then we're done until free agency time.

Leafs Season Week 21 in Review - Season 2, Episode 019

Dave and Chris start the episode off by discussing the latest coach firing in Guy Carbonneau. Bob Gainey takes over as the first non french Canadian head coach in a long time (except when he was interim coach before Guy). Al MacNeil, in 1971 to be exact. We also discuss the retirement of Gary Roberts. We ask the question could Steve Mason win the Calder the Vezina and the Hart trophy in the same year? Half way through the show Brian stumbles in late and rather rough shod. We the quickly talk about the Leaf games of the week. Then it's the main event. Berger Vs. Wilson. We play the clips of their argument and give our opinions on all things said. Finally we finish the show with a bang when we call Wayne spells his best Wayne's Word yet! Enjoy the show and see you next week!

Trade Deadline Review - Season 2, Episode 018

After trade deadline Leafs fans are left with one question, Why? Why pick up Gerber? Why only 2 players moved out? Why only a second round pick for Antropov? Why wait until now to give Toskala surgery? Finally, why do the Leafs keep winning? The guys discuss and fight over these and many other questions this week. We give our varied opinions on the trade deadline and talk about who came out the best in the end. For some reason we get side tracked and begin talking about the lady who had her face and arms ripped off by a pet gorilla and the woman who called the police while waiting for her drive-thru order. Also talked about is Coach's corner rant about Ovenchin and the return of Mats. We also briefly discuss the return of Avery and more importantly the not so triumphant return of Wayne and his misspelled word. Enjoy the show and have a listen next week, as the Leafs season soon comes to another tragic end.

Hockey Day in Canada Special! - Season 2, Episode 017

Welcome to the Hockey Day in Canada Special! This week it's just the 3 guys talking hockey from the brand new podcast studio. To be more accurate the unfinished podcast studio with no heat, chairs, flooring, washroom, running water or table. We talk about the first 2 trades to start off the season as well as Mike Green's record making streak. We also discuss the mob affiliations with the Montreal Canadians, will one of the Habs turn up at the bottom of the St. Lawrence with cement shoes? The passion for ex-captain Mats is evident when the guys talk heatedly about his controversial last year with the Buds. It's too bad we all agreed and there was no one like Dan the Man to argue our points. Sad to say we go 2 weeks in a row without Wayne's word. So what was so special about this Hockey Day in Canada show? Nothing, absolutely nothing.

Leafs Season Week 17 in Review - Season 2, Episode 016

For some reason Brian decides to start the show by discussing a plane crash, things get stupid, people get insensitive and we end up talking about which way you'd rather die, in the plane or in the house the plane crashes into.....anyhoo. Dan decides to join us after a long hiatus and has little to say, but oh boy, what he says is insightful. We talk about the Leafs still needing to lose even more so we can get the best pick possible. These show notes are starting to sound exactly like they did this time last year. Lose! Lose! Lose! We also discuss the eminent return of Avery and the unusual way Burke and Wilson are handling players, including Pogge who may be losing confidence every start he makes. Our effort to get a hold of Wayne for Wayne's Word fails so this show we regret to inform you that there is no Wayne's Word. Booooooo!

Leafs Season Week 16 in Review - Season 2, Episode 015

Dave's very late and Brian and Chris wait in the driveway for 30 minutes, so this weeks show is a short episode. Wayne doesn't show up because of a debilitating bout with the hiccups. There wasn't much to talk about in the NHL anyways so we kick the show off talking about the firing of Craig Hartsburg. As bad as things are in Leafs Nation, Sens fans are feeling the brunt of a horrible team that hopefully doesn't beat us to the bottom of the NHL. We also discuss the Leafs games versus the Pens, Panthers and Sabres. This sounds like something we said last year, but the Leafs aren't losing enough games for that high draft pick. We finally get Wayne on the phone and try to trick him with a strange Wayne's word submission. However it doesn't work so we give him his real word, Getzlaf, and he thankfully murders the spelling of it.

All Star Week in Review - Season 2, Episode 014

This week on the show the boys discuss Zetterburgs brand spanking new 73 million dollar contract and mildly debate about who is a better player, him or Rick Nash. We also have Russel from Sens Underground join us to give us the skinny on the diarrhea mouth Melnyk. Russel challenges the Leafs to a race to the bottom of the NHL. We accepted! We also reminisce about Dougie Gilmour and the good ol' days back in 93'. Later on we talk about Pogge and the Leafs avalanche lose to the Wild and wild win over the Avalanche. Then we get in a big to-do over the NHL All Star game and the very gay and very embarrassing pre-game shows. The NHL needs to cultivate a better image then cirque du soliel garbage. Chris gives some ideas for changing the game and making it better. The big finale comes with Wayner attempting his word of the week, which I am not about to attempt myself. Cheerio and have a listen next week!

Leafs Season Week 14 in Review - Season 2, Episode 013

This week on the show the guys fight about fights and the new OHL rule. We talk the Leafs week of loses, well almost. One win in three attempts and the slide to last place looks a little more possible. If only they let Carolina complete the comeback! We also discuss Jason Blake and his newfound energy and improved play. Jamie the west coast correspondent gets on the horn and gives us some less than stellar insight on the Canucks with new addition Mats Sundin. Good thing we ran out of time and had to cut him off for Wayne's Word. With the trade rumours swirling around Tampa's captain we had to use him as a word. You can tell I even have trouble with it since I didn't even try to spell it. Join us on Facebook.... or die!

The Catch up on Crap Episode - Season 2, Episode 012

Holy Crap! We sure did miss a lot of episodes. In fact we didn`t do an episode during the entire month of December. So apologies to all of our faithful listeners. Things got crazy and we never managed to get together. This week we try our best and fail miserably to cover everything we missed in only an hour. Needless to say that`s impossible especially with Brian reading emails from a month ago. The list of things discussed is too long to mention, but not as long as the list of stuff that we still didn`t get to speak of. We should be back on track starting this week and we have a list of guest we want to start getting to ASAP. Sorry to all and have a listen to us live this Friday at 8:30 p.m live on talkshoe.
