We’re back again with our newest edition of PPP’s podcast, Back to Excited. In this episode, Arvind and I discuss the training camp battles for spots that are happening—or in some cases, not happening—throughout the lineup.

  • [2:37] Our early feelings about Patrick Marleau (good!) and Ron Hainsey (less good!)
  • [10:02] The battle for the third-pair role: Calle Rosen, Andreas Borgman, Travis Dermott, and our beloved Martin “Marmar” Marincin
  • [27:26] Is there a chance Miro Aaltonen grabs the fourth-line centre job? Any chance? The tiniest little chance?
  • [35:48] What does Josh Leivo gotta do to get some respect around here?

You can find our podcast on Soundcloud below, on iTunes, and wherever fine podcasts are played.

Feel free to give us your thoughts on the podcast and the Leafs!
