Steve Dangle – TheLeafsNation.com

It is a weird feeling to be a Leafs fan right now as they haven’t gone out and made any moves that really make you shake your head yet this off-season. It is an odd place to be coming off a year where they brought in Clarkson and Bolland. The moves that they have made are low-risk with the possibility of having solid impacts. Komarov is a player that brings a lot of things to the table that they were missing last season – as he draws penalties and gets under the players skins.

Mark Masters – LIVE from Wimbledon

Milos is public enemy number one at Wimbledon this week as Federer might as well be an honorary British citizen with the amount of titles that he has. No one knew that this was going to become the biggest tournament in Canadian history, and it snuck up on a lot of people. Bouchard is getting more chatter than Milos at this point as there is a very real possibility that she becomes the world number one a lot sooner than Milos does. Genie and Milos are not that close – and there might even be some tension between the two considering how much attention Genie is getting.

Shane Horton – Toronto Argos LB

There has been a lot of turnover on the defensive side of the ball for the Argos – but there is not necessarily more pressure on him now, it is just the chance for other players to step up. Having played at USC under Pete Carroll, there was a lot of lessons to be learned and he inspired him and a lot of other players to be successful both on and off the field.

Chris Broussard – ESPN NBA Insider

It was a big day for Toronto to keep Lowry considering how many other great options there were for him. Miami didn’t have a lot of money to spend – but he would have been a great get for the Heat. If LeBron does decide to leave Miami, Cleveland is the most likely destination for him. There is a part of him that wouldn’t mind making things right in Cleveland and that is why they are the biggest challengers for his services. Next year there will be more challengers for the East if the Big 3 returns to Miami. Brooklyn and Chicago could be improved. Basketball is unique in the sense that players control their destiny much more than any other sport and it is refreshing in a sense to see it rather than being controlled by owners.

Adam Proteau – The Hockey News

The Islanders signing of Grabovski and Kulemin were actually pretty good deals. You are going to overpay no matter what with UFA’s, but these are two productive players that they had to overpay for to come to the team. They could now turn around and move some of their depth up front to solidify the back end. The Capitals and Canucks are a pair of teams that think they are a lot closer to contending than they actually are. They would have been better off to start tearing it down and giving themselves some flexibility.

Mark Masters – LIVE from Wimbledon

The Brits are going crazy over Eugenie these days and they even asked her tongue-in-cheek if she would become a Brit. If she plays to the best of her ability, she has a great chance of winning today. She is a better grass court player and actually won the junior title at Wimbledon a few years back. It is hard to quantify how big Eugenie could become if she wins this week – but she is so like able and has the potential to become a real superstar.

Josh Lewenberg – TSN Raptors Reporter

Most people expected Lowry to re-sign with the Raptors, but when you hear that teams like Miami and Houston were expressing interest – it was natural for the Raptors fans to get a bit nervous. It was nice to see for once that the big name Raptors player went to UFA and decided to come back to Toronto. $12 million a year is quite fair for Lowry considering where the market is right now – and they did what they had to do to lock him up. Lowry has been largely underpaid thus far in his career, and this is a good bump for him.

Amin El-Hassan – ESPN NBA Insider

This is a change your life deal for Kyle Lowry as he is moving into eight digits – as he is now at the point of making sure his grandkids goes to college. This is the first step for the Raptors, but it is a step in the right direction. They may have paid a little bit too much for Lowry and that could complicate future roster improvements, but the most important things in the league is roster continuity. If the Raptors hadn’t locked up Lowry, the next option was Eric Bledsoe – who is an RFA – and then there is a huge drop off at point guard.

Mike Halford – Pro Hockey Talk

The Grabo and Kulemin signings show us where the Islanders are as an organization – as they either have to overpay or go out of their way to take a risk on players in the draft like Ho-Sang. Teams are clearly not pushing away analytics as much as the have in the past, and Grabovski getting the contract that he did is proof of that.

June 30: Show In Review

The Canadian Press

Bob, along with Jonas Siegel are joined by Dave Hodge and James Duthie to discuss the Leafs acquisition of Roman Polak and the NHL Draft, and Carl Gunnarsson checks in to chat about being traded after five seasons in Toronto.

9:30 – Dave Hodge: The Reporters

It is hard to say what direction the Leafs will be going – but it seems clear that they are trying to clear a spot on the top pairing for either Rielly or Gardiner. Polak is not guaranteed to be a top four player by any means, but it is clear that they have been trying to get a true bruiser for several year and they are hoping that Polak is that guy.

10:00 – Kevin Dineen: Former Florida Panthers Head Coach

He looks back on his time with the Panthers and admits that they have tried to push too many kids too quickly into the league and that may have eventually doomed him. Coaching the women’s Olympic hockey team was a dream come true and it was great to be part of the Hockey Canada program despite the short notice.

10:30 – James Duthie: NHL on TSN

Doing live TV is a fine art and we found that out this weekend with both Steve Yzerman and Garth Snow at the draft. It was clear that Kesler wanted out of Vancouver – and the Canucks ending up getting fairly good value in return for him despite the fact that he had a short list of teams that he would agree to go to.

11:00 – Carl Gunnarsson: St. Louis Blues Defenseman

Shocked to hear that he was traded on Saturday, and while he had heard that Shanahan was going to try to make some moves, he didn’t expect it to be him. It was his first time being traded, but he has settled down a bit after the initial shock. His hip has been a chronic issue, but he had to get the surgery that he did this off-season. Whenever a team struggles, there will be players that have to fall on the sword and that have clearly happened. His main focus at this point is battling with rehab and trying to get to 100% health in time for the coming season with the Blues.
