Recap:

4:30 - Tyler Seguin, Dallas Stars Forward

Dallas Stars Forward Tyler Seguin joined the program to talk about his season in Dallas and what the off-season has brought for the 22-year-old. Playing in his natural position of centre with Jamie Benn alongside was a huge benefit for his success. The excitement in the organization following the Jason Spezza trade is awesome. Seguin talks about the life of a young professional athlete, and what criticism they can face for their lifestyle, and some of the wild rumors that surfaced from his time in Boston.

5:00 - Troy Murray, Chicago Blackhawks Radio Analyst

Chicago Blackhawks Radio Analyst Troy Murray joined the program to talk about the club locking up Patrick Kane and Jonathan Toews to matching 8-year contracts. Impossible to overstate the impact these two players have on the organization. The challenge will now be for GM Stan Bowman to build a team around two players filling a large portion of the salary cap. Murray mentions Patrick Sharp as a possible piece that could move, and other possible transactions for the team.

5:15 - Dirk Hayhurst, TSN 1050 Blue Jays Analyst

TSN 1050 Blue Jays Analyst Dirk Hayhurst joined the program to talk about the Jays plummet from the top of the AL East standings. Adam Lind found to have a broken bone in his foot following his mother's insistence he get an MRI, should raise some concerns with the team's medical staff. Jays can't compete in the AL East with the current lineup decimated by injuries and could turn from buyers to sellers at the trade deadline. Hayhurst also talks about the Yankees struggles and that the term is terrified by Masahiro Tanaka's trip to the Disabled List.

5:30 - Dwane Casey, Toronto Raptors Head Coach

Raptors Head Coach Dwane Casey joined TSN Drive to expand upon how the team is continuing to grow, and how each player has to bring something new to the table, and the coaching staff has to continue to work and develop new tactics to succeed, because they aren’t sneaking up on anyone. Casey discussed the acquisition of James Johnson, and what he’ll be able to bring to the team the second time around as a Raptor. Casey says the selling point that he and Ujiri use to attract players is winning, and how they need to continue to take steps as they did last year, and that’ll attract free agents. Finally, Casey chatted about Bruno Caboclo, and how his wingspan is almost unparalleled for his position. He expects his contributions to be mainly on the defensive end for the foreseeable future, but he expects his offensive game to develop soon as well.

6:00 - Sam Amico, FOX Sports Ohio

Fox Sports Ohio NBA Reporter Sam Amico joined the program to talk about the LeBron James speculation of him returning to Cleveland. James has likely decided where he is going and is now just confirming it with all the members of his inner circle. The longer this process goes on, the better chance he ends up in Cleveland, and that would feel like winning a championship to the fans of Cleveland. Would the level of hatred towards James surpass that of 2010 when he left for Miami if he chooses to stay with the Heat?

6:15 – Cory Schneider, New Jersey Devils

New Jersey Devils Goaltender Cory Schneider joined the program, fresh off signing a six-year, $42 Million contract. The feeling of stability and being the clear number-one goalie will be new, following the platooning with Roberto Luongo in Vancouver and Martin Brodeur in New Jersey. It's impossible to replace Brodeur, but will work hard to uphold the level of excellence he established with the Devils. Schneider also discussed his thoughts on shootouts in the NHL and the atmosphere of playing in Vancouver.

Recap:

Howard Bryant - ESPN.com/ ESPN The Magazine

The Novak Djokovic vs. Roger Federer match went exactly how he thought it would. Both players had something important to prove - Djokovic to prove he's the best player in the world after not being able to finish in the last few majors, and Federer to show he's still got it. He feels the Djokovic narrative he can't win the big one is a little bit overstated - as Djokovic has six majors. One can see how upset Djokovic gets and he thinks part of it is the eastern European chip on his shoulder, and the other part is the fact he showed up late to the party after Rafael Nadal and Federer had established the game. He compares tennis today to the Celtics and Lakers with the Pistons showing up in the middle of the rivalry. He thought Federer was finished last year not because he was old, but because he was injured. Once Federer is healthy, he's still dangerous. The question in tennis is not getting there, it's staying there, and that's exactly what Genie Bouchard has to do. Bouchard is doing what Sloane Stephens was supposed to do. There's three things to look at when judging Bouchard - if she's afraid of the moment, if she has a dominant serve, and if she has enough variety to play a style other athletes aren't used to.

Duane Forde – TSN CFL Analyst

The biggest thing from the Toronto Argonauts perspective in bringing Dwight Anderson in is he can line him up against anyone and he can guard them man-to-man. Another reason Scott Milanovich brought Anderson in has to do with a sense of swagger he presents. The turnover in the CFL, along with the short length of the preseason might be why the league has started slowly. The Hamilton Tiger-Cats took a big step forward from Week 1 to Week 2, especially considering they were both away games without top wide receivers Greg Ellingson and Andy Fantuz (due to injury). The Winnipeg Blue Bombers look smart right now starting Drew Willy after showing great toughness and leadership in his first two games.

Craig Burley - ESPN FC Analyst

It's been a great World Cup, but there hasn't exactly been a great team standing out above the group. The art of defending has faded in world soccer and everyone's an attacker now. He originally picked Brazil but worries for them more after the Thiago Silva suspension, than even losing Neymar. He sees Lionel Messi being the deciding factor in the Argentina vs. Netherlands semifinal, and thinks it will be chaos if Argentina beats Brazil in the final. Neymar was carrying Brazil up until the injury, and Oscar must stand-up in his absence.

Rick Westhead, Toronto Star

There is a renewed effort to unionize hockey players in the major junior leagues just two years after Glenn Gumbley was caught using an alias in an attempt to recruit both players and the NHLPA to gain support to unionize. Unifor, created in 2013 from the merger of the Canadian Auto Workers union and the Communications, Energy and Paperworkers Union has scheduled an organization meeting Wednesday in Montreal to convince players to sign union cards. Unifor will argue junior hockey players are taken advantage of, and the CHL will argue more money than ever is being poured into the sport to look after the players on and off the ice. Unifor is trying to attempt to distance them from Gumbley, yet they had an agreement with Gumbley if he unionized teams in Quebec. This is happening at the same time Northwestern University is standing up against the NCAA.

Wayne Scanlan - Hockey Columnist, Ottawa Citizen

Bryan Murray was at the development camp for the Ottawa Senators today, but he left early and announced he was diagnosed with cancer just afterwards. It was announced he will begin treatment, but the Senators haven't gone into detail about the type of cancer, or the treatment but have asked to show respect for Murray's wishes and family. He will probably miss some time while he is getting treatment. Jason Spezza had been the wiping boy for quite some time in Ottawa, and for that reasoning the break-up was a more mutual decision and much cleaner and than the likes of the Heatley saga. The REDBLACKS fans are really fired up and there's a lot of enthusiasm for the team and the home opener. He doesn't like the REDBLACKS name but thinks it will someday grow on the city.

Scott MacArthur - TSN Blue Jays Reporter

The Blue Jays issues are with offense and defense. The defense is directly related to some of the injuries they have had such as Jose Bautista and Brett Lawrie. Lawrie was not having a bad year when he got hurt, and that is being proven while the infield struggles during his absence. There is a different feel around the clubhouse now as they lose games in comparison to earlier in the season when the team was consistently winning games. The Blue Jays are getting the starting pitching, but the offense is laying to waste. Edwin Encarnacion's window of return will be 3-6 weeks. He would not move Aaron Sanchez because he is too valuable, but thinks the team needs to acquire a second or third baseman. Bautista will most likely get a significant fine for what he said about instant replay, but if the games better players begin to discuss this seriously we may see change.

Scott Mitchell - Hamilton Tiger-Cats President

The team looked into if the facility would be safe, and then wanted to make sure the atmosphere would be a good experience for fans. The team won't mind playing at Ron Joyce Stadium and is glad to be back in Hamilton, but they're not sure how many extra seats they will be able to put in. The team will work with what they have and McMaster University has been great accommodating the Tiger-Cats. He thinks the organization has proven they've been in this situation before, as they play exhibition games at McMaster and played their entire last season at Guelph University. The team was told the stadium would be on time and on budget, and it is clear only one of those is going to be true.
