On the episode we discuss the recent loss to the New York Islanders and why it’s concerning based on what has happened in the last stretch. How much should the team’s struggles fall on Mike Babcock or is this on the players not getting the job done?

Kyle Dubas addressed the media after cancelling practice and made it a point to defend Cody Ceci who has received a fair amount of criticism so far this season.

Did the Leafs general manager get too carried away with the moves he made in the off-season especially the contracts he signed? Jake gives his thoughts on how he wouldn’t do anything drastically different but would take a different approach.

David wonders if there is a solution to getting the Leafs’ special teams back on track especially the power play which is inexcusably below league average considering the talent the Leafs have.

Jake doesn’t understand why Babcock should be playing his top end players more like the Edmonton Oilers and Boston Bruins are right now and Austin explains that part of it has to do with his philosophy which is why people are calling for him to be fired.

They look at the next stretch of games and wonder if this will determine Babcock’s future going forward.
