The Canadian Press

Live from the ACC, Bob and Matt tee up tonight’s Coyotes/Leafs matchup on TSN 1050 and are joined by Jonas Siegel, Sean Fitzgerald and Gary Roberts to discuss Dave Nonis’ recent comments regarding his head coach and whether the GM should be looking to make a trade.


Hour 1:

Macko and Cauz were joined by Jack Armstrong and Sean Fitzgerald of The National Post.

Hour 2:

Macko and Cauz were joined by Buster Olney and TSN 1050 Maple Leafs reporter Jonas Siegel.

Hour 3:

Macko and Cauz were joined by Former Maple Leaf Gary Roberts and John Kryk of Sun Media.


9:15 - Jack Armstrong

Discussed the terrific intensity and back-and-forth action in the fourth quarter of Wednesday's Raptors overtime loss to the Bobcats. NBA players play at a different level when it gets to the fourth quarter. The Raptors played well to get to the 16 point lead and then they got sloppy offensively and took some bad shots. There were breakdowns defensively, particularly on covering Kemba Walker. The loss of Rudy Gay has cleared up everyone on the team. Kyle Lowry has improved in terms of his distribution of the ball, not quitting, and finding teammates quickly.

9:45 - Sean Fitzgerald of The National Post

Began telling a story about how he was cut off on Yonge Street by former Maple Leafs captain Mats Sundin. There are questions being asked regarding Randy Carlyle during this losing skid. Clarkson has as many points this year as Paul Bissonnette, who records 4 minutes a game. It is tough to get Clarkson going when there are no centres to help him out. There are a lot of story lines for HBO 24/7 to cover, it will be interesting to see how they portray them.

10:00 - Buster Olney

Addressed the Masahiro Tanaka coming to the MLB rumors. There is nothing final yet and the people in the Yankees front office are just hanging on every word. The Yankees would have gone all out to acquire Tanaka; he's 25 years old and he's someone who they really need. They have a big hole in their rotation. The Blue Jays have to get better starting pitching and they have a unique chance at an upgrade between now and spring training.

10:15 - TSN 1050 Maple Leafs reporter Jonas Siegel

Talked about who would be the trade bait for the Leafs to shake up the roster. James Reimer was brought up although goaltending for the Leafs has been solid. It isn't easy to acquire a $4 million defenseman because you have to give someone on the roster up. After the loss on Tuesday to Florida, the team seemed to realize that this "slump" has to stop and things have to start changing. Gardiner has been leading the team with ice time through the month of December, when he was benched, the players noticed that he wasn't on the ice. Carlyle has to figure out a way to spark the team.

11:00 - Former Maple Leaf Gary Roberts

Explained that you can cheat when it comes to eating, but not every day. Steve Stamkos learned that if you take care of your body outside of the rink, it will help you on the ice. He is driven and wants to get back on the ice; he is doing everything he can to quickly heal. Morgan Rielly will be a great player in the NHL, however, experiencing going to the World Juniors is one of the best experiences. Players don't have the opportunity to recover between games to play their best night in and night out. The moment teams lose confidence, it becomes stressful and begin to panic. It comes down to doing the simple things really well.

11:30 - John Kryk of Sun Media

Believes that football should be played outdoors regardless of the elements. The Cowboys shouldn't have stopped the run game and keep it balanced. Murray only ran a few times in the first quarter. Trends are not coincidences and the defense has been horrific for Dallas. The offense has been so inconsistent because of play calling.

December 18: Show In Review

The Canadian Press

Bob and Matt are joined by Jamie McLennan to discuss how the Leafs need their leadership to step up and bring the team together following another disappointing loss to the Panthers, and Sam Mitchell checks in to chat about how the Rudy Gay deal has been a win-win for the Raptors and Kings thus far.


Hour 1:

Macko and Cauz were joined by Jamie McLennan, TSN Hockey Analyst. Hour 1 Audio

Hour 2:

Macko and Cauz were joined by Craig Custance, ESPN, ESPN.com and Chris Cotillo, MLBDailyDish.com. Hour 2 Audio

Hour 3:

Macko and Cauz were joined by Sam Mitchell, 2006-07 NBA Coach of the Year, TSN NBA Analyst and Will Brinson, CBS Sports. Hour 3 Audio


9:15 - Jamie McLennan, TSN Hockey Analyst:

This falls solely on the leaders on the room, and the effort simply was not there from the Leafs last night. A captain can be a leader, but there has to be a leadership group in the room. The supporting cast really needs to step up off the ice, in addition to on it.

10:00 - Craig Custance, ESPN, ESPN.com:

It’s hard to see the Red Wings ever accepting a rebuild; this is a franchise that’s been so successful for so long, they’ll do whatever they can to keep the playoff streak going. The NHL can learn from the NFL, and you watch hits from Ronnie Lott back in the day, it was vicious. And now, there are flags preventing hits like that. If you have to take a little bit of the physicality of the game to keep some of the superstars in the game, it’s worth it in the long run.

10:30 - Chris Cotillo, MLBDailyDish.com.

A lot of people and industry sources have helped him get the scoops, and guys like Ken Rosenthal have been really supportive and awesome in helping his career. The Blue Jays will likely jump into the pitching market, and once Tanaka signs, the top three pitchers on the market could fall next.

11:00 - Sam Mitchell, 2006-07 NBA Coach of the Year, TSN NBA Analyst

Both the Raptors and Kings seemed to have benefitted from the Rudy Gay trade, as the Raptors have more depth, while the Kings have a go-to scorer aside from DeMarcus Cousins.

11:30 - Will Brinson, CBS Sports

Jerry Jones does have a history of discovering some talent, but there some inexplicable decision that he’s made as well. He’d trust the Lions over the Cowboys, as their defence is more deserving of faith. Joe Flacco has been terrible this year, but if he gets into the playoffs, he could flip that switch on.

December 17: Show In Review

The Canadian Press

Bob and Matt are joined by Dave Feschuk, Keith Jones and Gary Lawless to debate whether the Leafs should allow Morgan Rielly to suit up for Canada’s World Jr. Championship team.


Hour 1:

Macko and Cauz were joined by the Toronto Star's Dave Feschuk. Hour 1 Audio

Hour 2:

Macko and Cauz were joined by the NHL on NBC's Keith Jones and Gary Lawless of the Winnipeg Free Press, TSN 1290. Hour 2 Audio


9:15 - Dave Feschuk, Toronto Star:

The Leafs need Morgan Rielly right now, and it’s hard to see how much of a developmental step it would be for Rielly to go. The Leafs have some easier opponents coming up, and it’ll be very important to rack up some points in this stretch of games.

10:00 - Keith Jones, NHL on NBC:

Far too often, defenceman are rushed into the NHL, and there are many times in which they struggle later on in the season or into the next season, we even saw it with a guy like Luke Schenn, Rielly would benefit from the World Juniors for sure. The Thornton suspension is appropriate, and Shanahan nailed the intent of Thornton’s actions. It would be a mistake for Team Canada to leave Claude Giroux off the squad.

10:30 - Gary Lawless, Winnipeg Free Press, TSN 1290

Morgan Rielly is going to be a great defenceman in Toronto, but is there right now? You’d have to say he’s not at the level where you wouldn’t consider sending him to the World Juniors, and it’s certainly feasible to say that letting him go for those two weeks could really help his confidence and developmental level. If the Jets trade Evander Kane, they better get a boatland of talent.

11:00 - Mike Missannelli, 97.5 The Fanatic in Philadelphia:

Dez Bryant is a diva, and it’s a DNA package with many of the great WR’s in the NFL. Philadelphia is a sky is falling city, and there was a point in which the Eagles were on a big high. The Eagles need to pick themselves up, and beating the Cowboys in Week 17 is where the entire season will come down to.

December 16: Show In Review

The Canadian Press

Bob and Matt are joined by Jonas Siegel to discuss whether the line of Joffrey Lupul, Peter Holland and Mason Raymond can continue the success they had Saturday night, and Craig Button checks in to chat about the early impression made by Connor McDavid at Canada’s World Junior camp.


Hour 1:

Macko and Cauz were joined by TSN 1050 Leafs Reporter Jonas Siegel.

Hour 2:

Macko and Cauz were joined by TSN Resident Scout Craig Button and the NHL on TSN's James Duthie.

Hour 3:

Macko and Cauz were joined by Cincinnati Bengals Radio Analyst Dave Lapham.


9:15 - Jonas Siegel, TSN 1050 Leafs Reporter:

The Holland/Raymond/Lupul line was very dangerous all night, and they could be found gold with all the injuries. As much as Carlyle likes the size and physicality of Paul Ranger and Mark Fraser, he can’t be satisfied with the way they’ve been playing. Liles and Rielly moved the puck well, and maybe they keep rolling with that duo.

10:00 - Craig Button, TSN Resident Scout

Connor McDavid is going to have to prove to the coaching staff that he’s able to contribute as a 16 year old. All signs point to Jonathan Drouin being a healthy and instrumental piece for Canada if they’re going to win a gold medal. Brian Burke would certainly consider Dave Poulin or Claude Loiselle, he has great relationships with them and it’s definitely a possibility.

10:30 - James Duthie, NHL on TSN

Fresh from a minor hockey tournament, Duthie chimed in on the Maple Leafs weekend and win over the Blackhawks, and the reaction of the Dallas Cowboys broadcasters after yet another bad loss by Romo and Co.

11:00 - Dave Lapham, Cincinnati Bengals Radio Analyst

Lapham is consistently one of the wildest and over-the-top colour commentators in the NFL, and he chatted about how he conducts himself and if he’s ever been told to tone it down. He also broke down the terrible Bengals performance last night against the Steelers.
