Looking to the Future with Babsocks, Laine/Matthews

This week, we have seen the Laine/Matthews debate continue. It’s full of hot takes. A number of people believe Laine deserves the Calder Trophy because he’s a prolific scorer, while others believe that Matthews deserves it because of his complete game.

The Laine/Matthews debate is just surface of what has been a fierce Toronto Maple Leafs and Winnipeg Jets rivalry. The teams simply do not like each other. Adding Laine and Matthews into the fold thanks to 2016 lottery balls is a YUGE add for what could make for a potential Stanley Cup Final between the two teams.

I had the (Babcock voice) OPPORTUNITY to interview the creators of Babsocks, Jake Mednick and Thomas McCole. They have some merch planned, but couldn’t reveal what’s coming. McCole and Mednick are life-long Leafs fans, and stand for a number of great initiatives as they continue their venture with Babsocks.

So who do you think should win the Calder trophy? Laine or Matthews? What’s coming next for Babsocks?
