Ahead of Toronto’s second meeting of the season on Friday with the Chicago Blackhawks, Dave Bolland made his first appearance on Leafs Morning Take.
I still remember the day the Leafs acquired the two-time Stanley Cup champion. It just hits differently with a local product plays for the team, doesn’t it? It’s unfortunate it didn’t work out for Bolland long-term in Toronto.
Anthony Stewart filled in for Jay Rosehill on the Thursday edition. We kicked off the show by discussing Gregg Popovich’s antics from Wednesday night. Mid-game, the San Antonio Spurs head coach took to the in-arena mic to tell the fans to stop booing Kawhi Leonard. The NBA is the gift that keeps on giving.
Presented by Door Dash, The Appetizer focused on the U.S. Thanksgiving playoff barometer. If you’re unfamiliar with the notion, the stats and data suggest that if you’re in a playoff spot on this day, your chances of making it are really good. Yes, the Leafs are currently in a playoff spot, so that’s good.
Meantime, brought to you by Sober Carpenter, as mentioned, Dave Bolland dropped by the show. We discussed William Nylander, Patrick Kane, and what the Leafs need to do to finally get over the top.

Lastly, delivered by Charm Diamond Center, we went over some notes from Leafs practice. John Klingberg is still nowhere to be found and it looks like Conor Timmins is ready to make his debut. I’m curious to see if he can build off his strong showing in training camp. He was fantastic.
Jay Rosehill will be back in the mix for the Friday edition of Leafs Morning Take. Join us at 11 AM ET as we tee up Toronto’s Black Friday matinee game in Chicago. Also, we’ll preview Saturday night’s tilt in Pittsburgh against Kyle Dubas’ Penguins.
