The Ladies are celebrating 50 episodes of the podcast and it’s been quite the ride since our first in September 2019! We’ve been diehard Leaf fans since the late '70s/early ’80s and for this special episode, we give you some background on who we are and how the show came to life. As long-time Leaf fans there has rarely been a dull moment in Leaf Land and the ups and downs of this regular season are definitely testing the stress levels of Leafs Nation!

In this instalment, we get the show started with The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly! Auston Matthews is taking over the segment coming up in a couple of categories. Let’s just say the past couple of weeks haven’t been great for the Leafs and we break it all down for you with a discussion about bad reffing, blown leads, and the goaltending woes that nobody expected.

It’s not all doom and gloom though, and there have been some bright spots in the Leafs' play. We celebrate a couple of milestone moments in our Highlight Reel segment!

The focus of our Third Period segment is the trade deadline. We put our GM hat on and give our thoughts on where the Leafs need an upgrade. Is it the defence, goaltending, or a top-6 forward? What player(s) would we like to see in a Leafs uniform? Will Kyle Dubas make a move or will he stand pat? We get into the nitty-gritty of all trade deadline possibilities pertaining to the Leafs.

It’s that time in the season when we are keeping an eye on the NHL standings. The last stretch of games against non-playoff teams hasn’t helped the Leafs! The next group of games are going to be against tougher opponents. As we said earlier there is never a dull moment and it will be interesting to see the Leafs' response heading towards the final month of the regular season.
