Thursday Morning Leafs Links

Not a lot for me to talk about in this one, just some good links to send your way. There’s obviously a lot to be excited about regarding the Leafs right now – a playoff spot, some trade speculation, a good interview from Burke yesterday, plenty of buzz on Twitter.

As I mentioned, last night Alec posted Brian Burke’s interview with McCown and Cox at the FAN590. If you haven’t given it a listen, make sure to do so right here. Burke was on fire as usual, covering a variety of topics, even throwing out some more quotes to get everyone thinking about trade talks ahead of the deadline (is something on the burner? “Yes.” Do you think you’ll get something done? “Yes.”). A must-listen for sure.
