Leafs Talk Today Goes Live to Air Tomorrow

After the success of the debut episode of the show, Josh Lewis and I will be returning sooner than we originally thought. 

The second episode of Leafs Talk Today will air tomorrow morning at 9 A.M. on youcastr, and right here on Bleacher Report.

On tomorrow's show we will of course talk about the Toronto Maple Leafs.  We'll talk in depth about Mats Sundin as he nears his decision.  We'll also talk about Luke Schenn and Chris Didomenico impressing the Canadian brass at the World Junior Development Camp.

Of course we don't just talk Maple Leafs.  Tune in to hear the latest headlines from around the NHL.  We'll be talking Joe Sakic, Steve Stamkos, and a whole lot more tomorrow, including a preview of the Central division in part two of our around the rinks segment.

All this, and a whole lot more tomorrow morning, 9 A.M. on youcastr.  Hope you all tune in.

Colaiacovo Training Hard, Eager to Start Season

A new coach.  A new direction.  And hopefully a little luck.  That's what Carlo Colaiacovo is looking at as he heads into this year's NHL season, a season in which the Toronto born defenseman will be given every chance to play top four minutes on this young team.

Colaiacovo has spent his off season training hard and has even been working out with former WWE wrestler Trish Stratus at her new downtown Toronto yoga studio.


Schenn, Didomenico Still Impressing at Canada Camp

Although they didn't record a point in the second game of a three game mini series, Toronto prospects Luke Schenn and Chris Didomenico have continued to impress team Canada coach Claude Groulx and fellow Maple Leafs brass.

Both players picked a great time to strut their stuff, as Dave Morrison, Al Coates, and some other Leafs Brass are in attendance watching the intersquad games.

Groulx has been impressed with the intensity of Schenn, who is treating intersquad camp games just as we would any other regular season game.


Maple Leafs TV Carriers Announced

The Toronto Maple Leafs issued a statement earlier today regarding their broadcasting rights and distribution for the upcoming 2008-2009 NHL season.

As reported last week, Rogers Sportnet gets the bulk of the games, airing 28 Toronto Maple Leafs regular season games. 

The rest of the schedule shakes down like this:

  • 24 Leafs games in CBC
  • 17 on TSN
  • 13 on LeafsTV

Also, Sportsnet, TSN, and LeafsTV will broadcast all nine Maple Leafs pre-season games.

Sportsnet will air the Coke Zero Fans First game against Buffalo on September 22nd, while TSN will air a pre-season game against the Penguins.

LeafsTV is expected to air the remaining seven pre-season games.
