Leafs Nation Podcast: We’re Back!

  Huzzah! The Leafs Nation Podcast is back! We’ve been on something of a hiaitus for the last few months, and it’s no wonder – there really hasn’t been much to talk about – but myself (JP Nikota), SkinnyFish, birky, and Danny Gray have put together some good Leafs talk for your enjoyment. In fact, if you’ll…


Leafs Nation Podcast: How Do You Solve A Problem Like Brian?

What with François Allaire’s recent comments about interference with his work, and Brian Burke’s subsequent ruffling of feathers, fellow Pension Plan Puppeteer SkinnyFish (@SkinnyPPPhish), fellow TLNer Gus Katsaros (@KatsHockey) and I decided it was high time to look at Brian Burke’s work so far with the Toronto Maple Leafs. I think Skinny has an interesting…

Leafs Nation Podcast: This is how sad James Wisniewski is

  In this week’s podcast, Cam Charron, Danny Gray, and I chat about the recent Shea Weber situation, the Rick Nash deal, and get into the likelihood of the NHLPA being back to work this October.

Leafs Nation Podcast: Free Agency and A Dispersal Draft?

Leafs Nation Podcast: The JvR Edition

    With Danny Gray out of action this week, it was up to Eric T. (that’s @BSH_EricT of Broad St. Hockey fame) and I to hash out how each side felt about their new players. I’m happy to say that Eric was unhappy with the deal – always a good sign. Sorry, Eric. Follow me over…


Leafs Nation Podcast: Pre-Draft Fretting

  Neither Danny nor I are the ‘freak out’ types. We generally have a positive outlook on the general direction that the Leafs take. (Hey, we’re fans – sue us.) But leading up to the draft in Brian Burke’s final contract year could make him do a lot of things, and at this point, we…


Leafs Nation Podcast: Oh, Marlies!

Losing 6-1 is a tough day – let alone when it’s Game 4 that eliminates you in the finals for the Calder Cup. Michael Forbes (@mforbes37) and I (@JPNikota) were in attendance, and sat down today with Danny Gray (@ACatNamedFelix) to discuss the match and, of course, NHL playoff action.
