This week on Real Gud Pros we discuss an overwhelming seven games, Auston Matthews' budding modelling career, and help the Leafs marketing team out by suggesting new off ice video ideas.
We’re back and so is Babcock! But we’re not lingering on that! Join us as we instead celebrate the Toronto Marlies sweeping their way through rounds one and two of the playoffs, learn about some new European prospects, and cheer for the only NHL team we’ve ever cared about. Also: everything is happening so much in women’s hockey, evaluating William Nylander’s taste in music, and Patty learns how to get down with the youth.
This week we eulogize the Toronto Maple Leafs’ 2018-19 season the only way we know how: by bitching about Mike Babcock and spending way too much energy defending William Nylander. Join us as we lament game seven, rage about deployment and ice time, and debate which hockey player truly captures the spirt of Satine, dying of consumption in a Parisian brothel.
Brackets are busting left and right, the Bruins are playing a “clean game”, and the Leafs are Canada’s Team question mark? The Flyers may be out of the playoffs, but Gritty’s chaotic influence is definitely continuing to spread. Join us this week as we push optimistically on through playoff hell, talk Leafs beards, and take a welcome respite in Mitch Marner’s Reading Corner (patent pending but unlikely).
It's trade season babeyyyyy! And so far there have been.... no trades involving the Leafs. But while the Ducks are busy trading out their entire roster, some other stuff did happen: Buffalo and Columbus' respective mysteries have been solved, Ryan Johansen has been suspended for two games, and the NHL and NHLPA have confirmed that there will be no 2020 World Cup. As for the Leafs, well... Babs, can you turn on your location for a second? We just want to talk.
