Nov. 20: Curtis McElhinney happy for Andersen & Sparks
November 20 2018
The Leafs kept rolling in their victory over Columbus last night and have now turned it around on home ice, the lack of defence quality on the Leafs right side is still a lingering issue, and is Nikita Zaitsev's contract indefensible? (2:20); Leafs Nation co-host Marc Savard predicted the 2 NHL head coach firings over the last 24 hours, thinks more mores are coming in Edmonton, is impressed with Mitch Marner has stepped up in Auston Matthews' absence, and couldn't imagine a better start to the John Tavares era (13:18); Former Leafs goalie Curtis McElhinney is with the Carolina Hurricanes now and discusses his last days in Toronto, what it was like to lose the back-up job to Garrett Sparks, how you mentally prepare to play so infrequently, and why Freddy Andersen is a good fit for a big market like Toronto (30:17).

Nov. 19: Michael Peca on contract talks costing him a season
November 19 2018
Good Show's Leafs Analyst Justin Bourne breaks down what makes Travis Dermott so good, why Justin Holl deserves another shot, the importance of developing defencemen, Timothy Liljegren's limited progress in the AHL, why the Leafs have been successful even without Matthews and Nylander, why Babcock actually liked Marner from the beginning, and how the Oilers have screwed up so badly (3:32); Former NHLer Michael Peca is the only player to have sat out an entire NHL season because of contract negotiations and says a hard deadline like December 1st would have changed things for him, his holdout had both negative and positive impacts on the rest of his career, timing is bad for both the Leafs and Nylander, things get ugly when spun in the media, and offers some advice for Nylander (32:43).

Nov. 16: Andersen looks great, while Price has some problems
November 16 2018
The Leafs Hour kicks off with Ben & JD appreciating just how good Kasperi Kapanen has looked this season; Former Leafs goalie and Stanley Cup champion J-S Giguere has a lot of positives to say about Frederik Andersen, talks about how important it is for the back-up goalie to just be a team guy, thinks young goalies are more than able to carry a heavy game-load, and the Montreal Canadiens have been a very pleasant surprise but it's no thanks to Carey Price (7:25); It's another Leafs Ticket Takeover Friday with Good Show's Totally Original Survey Game Show (35:57)

Nov. 15: Auston Matthews back soon?
November 15 2018
NHL Insider Chris Johnston joins the show from San Jose ahead of tonight's Leafs-Sharks game and says Auston Matthews is making good progress with his injury, the LA Kings look really bad, the Lightning are going to have to weather the storm without Andrei Vasilevskiy for the next few weeks, Garrett Sparks really needs to perform well this weekend, the William Nylander situation continues to be fascinating and if it comes down to it the Leafs won't hesitate to let Nylander sit for the year, and a trade would probably not net the Leafs proper value (5:20); Steve Dangle joins the guys to talk about his new book and reacts to the latest news surrounding Nylander (31:45)
