Recap:

12:30 - Jonas Siegel, TSN 1050 Leafs Beat Reporter (live at ACC)

The Toronto Maple Leafs seem to play with a completely different type of intensity against the Boston Bruins, according to Jonas. Reasons for that could be the fact that they know they have to play their best against one of the best teams in the league. They also get into the Nazem Kadri comments, and how no matter what the scenario, he always seems overly optimistic. Jonas also bring up the fact that it's not the first time this team has gone through an awful stretch this season, the whole year's been an absolute rollercoaster ride.

1:00 - Ray Ferraro, TSN Hockey Analyst

Ray Ferraro is not very fond of the Canucks' season, he doesn't think they'll be winning the Stanley Cup any time soon. It's going to be a long road back to the finals for them. Reasons for that are the fact that they have an aging group of players and a mess in management. Ferraro also wasn't a fan of the fact that ownership hired Tortorella around Mike Gillis, and wouldn't be surprised if Torts is gone this offseason. Firing the GM and keeping the coach would be a silly mistake since the next GM would want his own coach. He also looks at the impressive play of the Detroit Red Wings with such a depleted line up.

2:30 - Matt Devlin, Toronto Raptors Play-by-Play Voice

The Toronto Raptors had a very impressive win last night against the Houston Rockets that has experienced a few injuries. Even though it wasn't a Rocket squad at 100%, Matt Devlin still thinks it was an incredible impressive victory for them. He also gets into the Indiana Pacers and how they've been playing wounded as of late, both mentally and physically, they even got booed off the court following their loss to the Spurs. They'll have a tough test against the Raptors tomorrow and Devlin predicts a very intense, playoff-type game. However, the key down the stretch is to stay healthy for the big guys.

3:00 - Dave Goucher, Boston Bruins Play-by-Play Announcer (98.5 The Sports Hub)

Boston's overall lineup has been playing consistently on the basis that the bottom lines step up big when the top ones aren't performing. Goucher also loves Jarome Iginla's play all year, providing great leadership for the Bruins, the only thing missing is a Stanley Cup. He's also one of many that believe Claude Julien's great coaching has been heavily overlooked in Boston and around the league for that matter. However, he admits that Julien has made peace with it and it even let's him do his job more comfortably now since, according to media and fans, he's been almost fired every time one little thing goes wrong.

3:30 - Dan Shulman, ESPN

There's a lot of positives to take in from the Toronto Blue Jays' first three game. However, Shulman still sees a few question marks around this lineup that start with Brandon Morrow, Brett Lawrie, and of course Jose Reyes. He also delves into the new Instant Replay challenge, and sees how managers seem to use it as a time killer, but it's better they do that than pointlessly go argue with the umps. Considering all the problems with Instant Replay so far, the MLB will likely go through a trial and error period to fix it up. Shulman claims that several owners are bothered by the length of the game, however it's evident they're not doing anything to change that since the most basic fixes to that can be made (pitching coaches and catchers going to the mound being one of those examples).

Recap:

Mark Giordano - Calgary Flames Captain

Mark joined the boys to help tee up the Leafs-Flames game. He discussed his experience as a captain, saying its an honour during such a crucial rebuild. The team is young but is working hard and he hopes that this years late season success carries over to next season. Mentioned that losing in a Canadian market is tough, its a fragile time for the team and the mood changes real quick, but it can all turnaround with just one win.

Jonas Siegel - TSN 1050 Leafs Reporter

Joined Leafs Lunch live at the ACC. Talked about the problems that have led up to the letdown of the past 2 weeks. At the heart of it all are the Leafs defensive problems; Jonas debated whether the issue is with the pieces or the system. The conversation then shifted to discussing the Marlies players that could of/should of been called up and the issues the leafs have had with their stars ice time.

Ray Ferraro - TSN Hockey Analyst

Ray believes this is the time for the Leafs players to be “selfish”; meaning do your own job and not focus on the jobs of others. If enough players can do that they can play better as a unit and achieve better results. Compared a defenceman like Ryan Suter to Phaneuf; Suter being a safe stay at home defenceman, who in this town would be applauded for his success on the backend but would also cause fans to ask where the offence is. Hard to put the blame of the slide on anyone specific as they have all been bad, but as usual the heat goes to the highest paid players.

Brendan Kennedy - Toronto Star

Credited Dickey for taking the blame for the loss solely as his loss. Game felt a lot like 2013 with Dickey struggling and Reyes going down. The Reyes injury could be a huge impact on the teams season and Brendan found it odd that Reyes played in Montreal with this condition.


Antonio Davis - Former Raptor and Current ESPN NBA Analyst

Antonio talked about the potential of losing Lowry; feels he is a very significant piece because if they lose him they are losing their floor general and the pulse of their team. The raptors have been flying under the radar and if they play their game they can pull a few upsets and make some noise in the playoffs. Touched on the Pacers decline close to the end of the year. As beneficial team work is, you do need a star you can lean on when it matters most. If he had to chose, he would take Lebron over Durant; he can play 4 different positions, dominates on both ends of the court, he’s proven champion; hence, if you have one game he is who you take.

Pierre Lebrun

Doesn't think a decision on Carlyle has been made yet and the assessment will happen in the off season. Talks about his sit down with Wilson; Wilson can relate to what Carlyle is going through (the thousand yard stare). Saturday the Leafs looked the most nervous that Pierre had seen them, they were panicking and guys looked like they didn’t want to go on for their next shift. Credits the obsession with the Leafs to the fact that there are so many. Everyone has an opinion and their own crazy ideas, which makes it hard for athletes and coaches to ignore due to the volume of noise.





March 31: Show In Review

The Canadian Press

With the Leafs in the midst of an eight-game losing streak, Bryan, Jamie and Jeff debate whether the team’s losing streak was a predictable outcome due to their season-long play with Dave Poulin and Ray Ferraro.

Hour 2 (Leafs Lunch):

Hour 2 (The Bryan Hayes Show):

Bryan is joined by Scott MacArthur, TSN 1050 Blue Jays Reporter. Hour 2 Audio


Recap:

12:30 - Dave Poulin, Toronto Maple Leafs Vice President of Hockey Operations

With the Leafs losing streak in full gear, Dave Poulin talks about how the team needs to get some more energy in them. It's not so much the desperation that they're playing with, it's more so the inconsistency from certain individuals. The shot differential has been an issue with this team all season, but it's not the reason for this current losing streak, according to Poulin. He also says that the onus is on everybody for these struggles but they still have an opportunity to get back in it.

1:00 - Ray Ferraro, TSN Hockey Analyst

Ray says that the officials in the NHL have to start calling games on a consistent basis, while they do so individually, they have to do so game in game out (when it's different crews calling it). He feels the biggest issue with the Leafs is that they seem like an unwilling group, haven't been sold on the system by any means. While part of the issue could be with the coaching, there are no good replacements out there now, so it is possible that he'll stay on as bench boss. He feels that outside of the top line, Bernier and Rielly no one on this Leafs team is safe from being traded.

2:30 - Israel Gutierrez, ESPN

Considering all the changes the Toronto Raptors made in-season and past off-season, Gutierrez says he's surprised how good the Toronto Raptors have been. He feels that they're very similar to the San Antonio Spurs in terms of the players buying into the system and mentality of the coaching staff. Gutierrez also chats about the Miami Heat and their success and how rare it is that a front office has been as stable as that one has been, with Pat Reilly at the helm.

3:00 - Scott MacArthur, TSN 1050 Blue Jays Reporter

There are low expectations from the fans about this year's Blue Jays team and Scott MacArthur is not surprised. There were a lot of changes made last year so people expected an improvement after a disappointing season for the Jays but they didn't see it. There may be an improvement in R.A. Dickey's play though considering he had an offseason that was far less hectic than the one last year (post-CY Young). A lot of this season's rotation, in Scott's eyes, hinges on the play of Morrow and Hutchison; if they're great then the Jays can be in a very good spot. It's going to be a big year for Hutchison and it can be the start of a bright future.
