Nick Kypreos, Justin Bourne and Sam McKee begin the show by continuing the conversation around the uncertainty of Auston Matthews' future with the Maple Leafs, then get into Toronto's 4-2 victory over the Detroit Red Wings, which one player would be replaced on the defensive pairings, and how the group has bought in on performing better on defence. Former NHL executive and Sportsnet hockey analyst Mike Futa (42:09) weighs in on which area on the Leafs roster they should be upgrading, if Matt Murray and Ilya Samsonov are the future goaltending tandem, and his assessment of Matthew Knies within Toronto's prospect system. Then, senior columnist from Sportsnet Eric Francis (1:07:04) jumps on to discuss Matthew Tkachuk's return to Calgary for the first time since being traded to Florida, Flames' struggling on offence, and how can head coach Darryl Sutter help turn their season around.
