Bill Enos 

 Bill grew up on the south shore of Montreal, but was born on the left coast. He has been a die-hard Canucks fan since 1989 (except those two Messier years, which he spent living in a bunker fearing the sun).  Bill has long been an avid baseball, hockey and football fan, and probably should write a book about one of them. Joining the podcast with Riley is a chance for Bill to flex his vast knowledge of hockey history without becoming a pub quiz barfly. Bill has promised to remove his green and blue coloured glasses for the podcast, but can't make any promises.

Riley Haas

Riley grew up watching baseball but fell in love with the Maple Leafs during the 1993 playoff run. He had his heart broken by Gretzky and didn't watch hockey again for 5 years. Starting with the 1999 Leafs playoff run Riley immersed himself in hockey again, becoming so obsessive that he eventually wrote a book about Maple Leafs mismanagement. He dates his falling out of love with the Maple Leafs from the David Clarkson contract. He is now much more of a basketball fan but still loves the history of hockey.
