Hopefully, now that the fan will start to broadcast Leaf games (next year) they will talk more leaf hockey. I have slowly weaned myself off the Fan and listen a lot more to TSN radio. They have great hockey analysis, especially before and after a Leaf game where there is complete coverage. I also listen to Gordon Stellick on HNIC radio on Sirius 157 in the afternoons.
TSN radio will be broadcasting Leafs games next year...

No, hes not. I sometimes get confused if Hayes show is about sports or (un)interesting Tweets he read. Seriously, he talks about Twitter more then any single sport, including hockey.
And he tries to take the McCown approach about being negative about the Leafs, but it doesnt work with him. He argues every decision about this team, even if the day before he argued the exact opposite point. Its like he forgot what he said yesterday. Its rather like reading a lot of posts in the PGT here, actually. The funniest parts are when he tries to argue with Ray Ferraro. Ferraro owns him each and every time. He looks like a fool. Ferraro, a HOCKEY analyst, even made him look foolish when discussing baseball.
And I disagree NFL is popular in Canada compared to NHL hockey. Look no further then the Bills games in TO that didnt do nearly as well as many thought they would. About the only thing that matters to anyone is Super Bowl, and thats only for the spectacle and the parties.
To be completely fair, we're talking about the Bills here.
This morning Sammut is showing exactly why I dislike him. Hes basing his whole show around the idea that if the Leafs lose tonight, they are unable to make a trade because of BURKE'S trade freeze. Hes conviently leaving out how no one else in the league can make a trade either. I would be fine with him having a discussion about how Burke's freeze is early, but hes purposely misleading the audience into thinking that currently the Leafs are the only team which cannot make a trade.
Does anyone know if Anthony Totera was let go? I think ive said it here before, but I really cannot stand that dude. No original thought, just asks stupid questions, like 'Are you happy to be a Leaf fan?" then repeats that stupid question like 42243242x, then takes calls on that same question for an hour. As a listener, why do i care about others being happy to be a Leaf fan??? If it were Are you happy about the latest trade, or the last line combos or something, but its always just generic garbage.
ok that was my rant. I like Sammut and Rob Wong, and to a lesser extent Norman on SN Latenight.
