Flyers fan loves it

Kyper and JB are so entertaining. Sprinkling in Doug every once in a while brings me back to HC at noon. Great stories, good insights, and hilarious back and forth. Keep it up!

ellencbalazki ,

two GREAT hosts (sorry, mac)

three times a week was not enough kyper for me. now he's back on a 2-hour DAILY show and adds bourne (who was awesome on hockey central with marek)?!? man, this show is sofa king good. even their producer is knowledgeable and entertaining. i wish i could give it more than five stars.

Higher Thinking ,

I never knew Kyper was so good!

This has become by FAR the best Leafs show on the radio/podcast! Nick and Justin have great chemistry, and Sammy is a great producer but is really a major part of the show. I think it's brilliant to involve him so much because it gives the feeling that we get to see what goes on behind the scenes.

I love the upbeat mood all the time - always finding something positive to talk about. Justin is the nicest guy and has credibility because of his experience and his great "genes". Real Kyper has such conviction and always makes me laugh - he's never afraid to call out anyone or bring up any topic.
