Leafs Welcome the Champs to Town

Real Kyper & Bourne

Mar 15 2023 • 1 hr 44 mins

Nick Kypreos, Justin Bourne and Sam McKee begin the show by discussing when they expect Auston Matthews to return to his old self on the ice, if Calle Jarnkrok fits on the top line heading into the post-season, and what they expect from the Leafs home game against the defending Stanley Cup champions. Then, Eddie Olczyk (21:14) jumps on to chat about where Luke Schenn could fit on Sheldon Keefe's roster, the state of the Western Conference, and if the Colorado Avalanche has a chance to hoist the Cup again despite dealing with some injuries on the team. Next, ESPN's Ray Ferraro (41:59) weighs in on the current group of Maple Leafs and their chances against the Tampa Bay Lightning when the playoffs come around, why Jon Cooper's hockey club has struggled in the last stretch of the season, and why he's not overly concerned about the Boston Bruins. To wrap up the show, Aarif Deen (1:06:15) joins the guys to give the Avalanche perspective ahead of their game against Toronto, how they've navigated line juggling with players injured, and if their goalie Alexandar Georgiev can lead them to another Cup.
