TRADE DEADLINE SZN is here.
On Monday afternoon, the Vancouver Canucks dealt their captain Bo Horvat to the New York Islanders in exchange for Anthony Beauvillier, prospect Aatu Raty and a protected 2023 first round pick.
So, naturally, the common question is how does it affect the Leafs? I broke it all down on the Tuesday edition of Leafs Morning Take. For starters, Horvat going to New York means he didn’t end up in Boston, which is a good thing. In the grand scheme of things, we’ll see what how the blockbuster trade impacts Toronto. I’m so curious to see what they do.
Also, unfortunately due to technical issues, we were unable to connect with TSN’s Bryan Hayes on today’s show. Don’t fret, he’s agreed to try again tomorrow. We’ll figure it out.
Meantime, Jay Rosehill dropped by to deliver another instalment of 3 Hits With Rosie. It’s incredible how versatile Rosie’s getting with some of these. He was dialled in once again today.
Lastly, I wrapped with the PointsBet Canada bet of the day.
And so, make sure to join yours truly & Jay Rosehill tomorrow at 11 AM ET as we tee up Leafs/Bruins. Plus, as mentioned, Bryan Hayes will join us to touch on the big matchup, Matt Murray and the trade deadline.
