Quarter Season Review - Season 5, Episode 001

Welcome to the quarter season review! This is the first episode of our season of talking Leafs. We may not be doing very many episodes year because of someone whom will not be named (Wayne). We are happy to be talking about a good Leafs team, finally. Things are looking up this year so far as the Leafs are playing very well and Kessel and Lupul are kicking ass in the points department! Have a listen to our thoughts and opinions on what the rest of the year may have in store and the goings on in the NHL so far. Also have a listen to Wayne try to spell 2 words this week on Wayne`s Word, BONUS! Stay tuned for another episode around the halfway point of the season.

Reunion Tour Part 2! Leafs Season Week 24 in Review - Season 4, Episode 017

All of the guys return to discuss the flailing Leafs attempts to return to the playoffs. The show starts with a word meaning discussion. This week the Leafs surprise by playing a stellar game and beating the Canes, only to falter to the Panthers in a 4-0 shutout loss. This brings up the curious question of Wilson's decision to play Giguere and not even dress Reimer! Brian gets rather heated in Wilson's constant contradictions of himself. Is Wilson just messing with the media? If the Leafs are actually trying to make the playoffs why did Wilson play Giguere? Leafs fans everywhere were baffled and dismayed. There is no way the young Reimer could be tired enough to not even dress. The guys here think it's over for the Leafs and playoffs are out of the picture barring a miracle slump by the Sabres. Things get very silly with Wayne when he tries to say Philly is a surprise and then tries to spell a Ranger players name. Enjoy all and please donate!

Leafs Playoff Push Week 2 - Season 4, Episode 016

The Leafs playoff push falls short this week as they only pick up 1 out of a possible 6 points. They're still in it but hopes get slimmer if the following weeks continue like this past one. We reminisce about the last time we were excited the Leafs may make the playoffs, but alas they lost to the Islanders. We discuss the upcoming week with 2 important games versus Buffalo and Carolina and of coarse we talk at length about the Chara hit on Max Patchready (Wayne's Word Spoiler) According to Chara and Spezza no one in the NHL is trying to hurt each other... sure, and Sidney Crosby doesn't have a concussion. We also have to speak about the media and their huge overreaction. Should the league bubble wrap everything? We wrap things up with some WWE talk with Wayne and his awesome Wayne's Word!(see spoiler above)

Leafs Playoff Push - Season 4, Episode 015

So, as always the Leafs are making a late season desperate push to make the playoffs. As always everyone is asking the question, will they make it? If you want answers than listen to this show, then find yourself wanting more answers because we don't give any. Same old, same old. We all want them to make it this year since we don't have to worry about poor drafting position. We also review the recent trades and the boring trade deadline. Is Dion Phaneuf the worst captain in Leafs history? Some in Toronto radio have been saying so, we give that topic a whirl. We also speak about the difference between the Leafs play with Reimer vs. Giguere in the nets. Finally we discuss the ridiculous of 3 point hockey games and wrap it up with as always Wayne's Word.

Brian Burkes Trade 'O' Rama Episode, Part 2 - Season 4, Episode 014

This is not really a Trade O' Rama per say, but Brian Burke did make a big trade again this year prior to the trade deadline frenzy and we talk about it, as well as the trade of Mike Fisher. Does Burke have more in stock? Probably. We he make another trade before trade deadline day? Perhaps. Do we like asking ourselves questions that we then vaguely answer? Maybe. We also revisit Kessel being picked last for the All Star game and the Toronto uproar about it. We then discuss all the goalie fighting and suspensions from around the league. We then give our opinions on Don Cherry's opinions about Andrew Ference. As always we wrap up with Wayne's Word and Chris' new idea for making the Leafs playoff contenders next year. Have a listen to find out how!

All Star Extravaganza! Leafs Week 17 in Review - Season 4, Episode 013

It's All Star time! Get ready to get ready! This week we talk about the NHL All Star game, the gimmicks and the glory! The biggest breakup in NHL history, the Sedins split up, and no big surprise to many, our beloved Kessel gets picked last. To stroke his bruised ego they give him a car and 20 G's to his favourite charity. We also talk about the Nabokov incident, Leafs horrible week, and Komisarek's appearance in the crappy rumour mill of TMZ. Finally we have a double shot of Wayne's with a talk about Wayne Gretzky and our own Wayne for Wayne's Word. Too many Wayne's! Enjoy the show!

Leafs Week 16 in Review - Season 4, Episode 012

This week we review the Leafs rather mediocre 1-1-1 record. Scoring seemed to be a problem again until they faced the Ducks on Thursday night. We discuss Nabokov's signing with the Red Wings and again marvel at how Kenny Holland manages to get great players at bargain basement prices while the Leafs ownership continually overpays (Kessel, Komisarek, just to name a couple). Will some other club pick him up? We also discuss Lombardi's freak out with the call from the War room on the high stick and the return of Forsberg...again? Then Chris bitches about the 500 million dollar company that runs a rinky-dink T.V station. Finally we sum up the good and bad of the first half of the season for the Leafs and we get Wayne on for a Wayne's Word.

True Grit! Leafs week 15 in Review - Season, Episode 011

We're back after the holidays for a quick episode due to the inability to find the mixer in quick fashion. Since the last episode the Leafs have gone 8-6-0, included in that a 4 game winning streak! This week we delve into the road winning streak which includes the great play of rookie call up James Reimer. Many of the Leafs forwards are poised to score between 20-25 goals which will be career highs for all of them. The only weakness still appears to be on the Defensive side of things as this on paper defense is not living up to potential on the ice. Lately the Leafs have shown true grit, so we decide to talk about the movie True Grit for a while. We discuss Dion Phaneuf, will he ever return to his years of Norris Trophy possibility? We also talk about Wilson's cash betting and his 600th win and the HBO series 24/7. Finally we wrap it up with the usual Wayne's Word!
