It’s finally the playoffs, and through a nail-biting end to a season full of twists and turns and speculation the Leafs are…… facing Boston in the first round. But that’s fine, and we’re fine, and still have four final regular season games to talk about anyways. Plus: updates on the CWHL situation, revisiting our beginning of the season predictions, and what the Lightning’s uniforms should look like.
This week we start with the heartbreaking news that, after 12 years, the CWHL is ceasing operations. To quote the players, who came out with similar statements on social media following the official announcement, “it’s hard to remain optimistic #NoLeague”.
Also on the table this week: Tyler Ennis’ Masterton nomination, Auston “Beast Mode” Matthews, the coming rise of player tracking technology, and who should captain the Leafs.
Things mentioned in the episode:
Peter Chiarelli has been fired!! Holy shit we can’t believe that it took this long!! Meanwhile, the Leafs wrecked the Capitals 6-3 in a magical slump-busting game, the NHL managed to truly out-NHL itself with the All Star Weekend, some players wore some baller suits, and Dubas held a press conference. We also discuss which Leafs would win what in a beauty pageant, what mascot we would like to spend a week living with, and try and match hockey teams to r/relationships posts.
