BeLeaf In The Magic: A Maple Leafs Podcast
Kyle Dubas, the general manager of the Toronto Maple Leafs did the math, saw the writing on the wall and said that someone had to go. So during the second round of the 2019 NHL Entry Draft, Dubas pulled the trigger on a deal with a team which takes pride in calling themselves a "bunch of jerks" and exiled the head honcho of the Main Event Mafia Patrick Marleau in an attempt to keep the rest of the faded stable together.
Well, most members of Leafs Nation said "Bye Felica" to Old Man Marleau, other young studs from the Buds shared their memories of what once was, and got your hosts thinking about what's to come once the cash man beats the drum to signify the start of the RFA wars.
So in today's episode, the boys will talk about the main storylines of the 2019 NHL Entry Draft. They will also chat about the moves the Maple Leafs made while looking at the team's newest members. On top of that, Oscar will tell the tale of his experience at The Canada Sport Analytics and Technology Conference. Who knows, maybe Papa Marner might get a mention?
The boys talk about these points and more:
- The Leafs Draft
- Trades at the draft
- What to expect now
- Oscar's weekend
Until next time, keep your stick on the ice!
