Welcome back to another episode of Back to Excited. Today, we discuss:

  • [2:42] Fulemin rants about how people react to ‘playoff injuries’
  • [14:53] Our trust in Kyle Dubas
  • [31:23] The Leafs are very young and very good
  • [36:43] We defend Mike Babcock against some of the criticism he has received
  • [51:55] William Nylander ripping up the World Championships (he got another assist as I wrote this)
  • [57:32] Rasmus Sandin blowing away our expectations
  • [1:02:50] Mitch Marner is going to get overpaid, but he’s also an amazing player that is a joy to watch.

As always, you can find us on iTunes and Soundcloud. Let us know what you’re optimistic about regarding the Leafs, and of any topics you’d like us to cover in the offseason.
