We’re back from the holidays and more prepared to fight Sabres fans than ever! But first, we have to catch up on a fuckton of games, recap the last-minute bid by the Dallas Stars to take the 2018 Tirefire Management of the Year Award, and provide an extensive play-by-play look at Auston and Mitch’s performances at the Nutcracker. And finally, to ring in 2019, we provide some members of the team with the New Years resolutions WE think they should make (and also begrudgingly make some of our own).
The Leafs have given us so much this holiday season, including a secret jam band, a veritable mob of moms, and a Leafs Alternate Career AU of their very own. To repay them, we come up with some—erm, mostly PG-rated—gift ideas for our favourite boys.
Now if only we could've left Florida with more than one point…
It’s our tenth episode and now that we’re trusted hockey experts, we think it’s high time we start making some changes around here. This week, we propose some NHL rule changes (spoiler alert: some of them are… more serious than others). Also—the CWHL content is here and amazing, NO ONE IS GETTING OFFER SHEETED, the Leafs are once again trying to kill us personally, and Josh Leivo had to Josh Leave-o.
Oh, and one more thing: FUCK the Boston Bruins.
Sure, Willy still hasn’t signed but we’re feeling optimistic!! Mostly!! Kinda!
Either way, we’re not lingering on it, because there’s lots of other stuff to talk about. The very entertaining trash fire also known as the Ottawa Senators is, remarkably, getting worse, the speculation over Mitch Marner’s worth is also somehow escalating, and, oh yeah, there were some hockey games played too.
Do you ever find yourself up late thinking about which pastry a certain member of the Toronto Maple Leafs is? Probably not, but don't worry we've got you covered either way. Also: the Leafs conquered California, Peter Chiarelli makes another one-for-one trade, and the Habs like to rub pickle juice on their legs.
Trying to forget two games we'd rather not talk about, we help plan Travis Dermott’s sexy séance, find out what unpopular Halloween candy is Ron Hainsey’s soul twin, and tell tales of adorable Morgan Rielly’s past. Also: Auston's shoulder, sensory friendly hockey games, the Pens being back on their bullshit, and more!
