BeLeaf In The Magic: A Maple Leafs Podcast
In this episode, the boys will look to cover the 2019 NHL Draft. What will the Leafs do? Will they trade up? Will they trade down? What will other teams do and how will that affect the Leafs?
The boys will also talk about what the Toronto Raptors championship win means to them. They also give their takes on what a Maple Leafs Stanley Cup victory would mean to the city. Would it be a bigger parade? How crazy would the party be? And what would it take for the Leafs to get to that point? Also, the boys will predict NBA Finals MVP Kawhi Leonard’s future with the Raptors.
Jammed in there will be some Leafs rumours and other nonsense.
To cap this eppy off, “on-the-side-horseplayer” Holmesy will talk about this year’s Royal Ascot meeting at the Ascot Racecourse in Ascot, Berkshire, England, where former Maple Leaf, current NBC hockey analyst and avid horseplayer Ed Olczyk, and the rest of the NBC crew, will be covering the festivities from June 18-22. Holmes will give the listeners a quick history of the meeting. He’ll touch on what has happened so far and what’s going to happen as we venture into the weekend. Holmes will also give his “best bet of the meet”.
The boys talk about these points:
- What the Raptors championship means to our hosts
- A look at the draft and how it could play out for the Leafs.
- Raving NHL rumours.
- The Canada Sport Analytics and Technology Conference + Blue Jays
- Holmesy’s piece on the Royal Ascot
Until next time, keep your stick on the ice.
