The Leafs Geeks Podcast – Episode 51: Q&A Session

Here’s the iTunes & SoundCloud links to the episode (this was recorded a few days ago, sorry I’m late posting it on TLN, it’s been a nightmare trying to get stuff out with a computer over the past couple weeks).

In this week’s episode, I had listeners send in questions on twitter about the offseason, and tried my best to answer them with some critical analysis. Here’s a time-stamped list of the topics that were discussed:

1:16 – Who will the Leafs select with the 17th overall pick?

8:18 – Would you trade the 17th overall pick for a RHD like Tanev/Manson?

12:23 – Should TOR be interested in acquiring a F this offseason (ie. Neideretter, Radulov)

16:08 – Ranking the top available D that the Leafs might target.

28:09 – Potentially unloading Lupul to clear up cap space.

32:36 – Thoughts on moving Nylander to centre.

39:13 – Worst possible (but realistic) offseason move?

43:39 – Late round picks to target in the 2017 draft.

49:34 – Does PIT’s success indicate TOR should stack up on F instead of addressing D?

1:00:00 – How do analytics departments’ proprietary info compare to public data?

1:07:45 – Who will be the Leafs’ next GM?

1:10:30 – Thoughts on taking Kari Lehtonen as a cap dump.

1:13:55 – Should we be worried if TOR continues to prioritize size>skill in the draft?

1:16:03 – Lion tattoo power rankings.

1:17:54 – Update on my European adventure (& 10-day window where I’m back home)

Hope you enjoy the episode, cheers!
