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!
