All they talk about is the leafs and it's pissing me off! I skip half the podcast every day because there is only so much they can talk about leafs related and the rest is pointless. When the playoffs started they lessened the leafs content but here they go again Phaneuf trade rumours! There is playoff hockey to talk about but all they care about is the leafs. Guess what the leafs and the city of Toronto are not the centre of the goddamn universe! Next year they will have exclusive rights to the NHL games and they better change or else it's going to be a gong show. At least TSN pretends they are not leaf biased!
Really??? The Leafs are out, great playoffs races going and you guys talk about the Leafs last practice and what it would be like. Really?? And the call up coming for their last game. Really?? You're kidding me. Is this a joke?? Really?? Your title is HOCKEYCentral. Honestly, there is more to hockey than the Leafs. Really!!!
Rename the show
The show can be decent, but the Leafs talk is unbearably annoying now...and I imagine it's only going to maintain this course as the leafs become better. Round 1 of the playoffs are underway at the time of this review, and even though there are 16 teams to cover and 8 different series, this show talks about Leafs for easily half of every episode.
