4:45 – Dave Feschuk, The Toronto Star Columnist, In Sochi

Dave Feschuk speaks about the officiating in the Canadian woman’s 3-2 overtime win over the Americans on Thursday and explains why he thought the call on Hayley Wickenheiser should have been called a penalty shot. He believes there’s no question that Marie-Phillip Poulin is now best female player in the world and thinks the Canadian men’s Olympic team should be considered the favourites against the United States in Friday’s semifinal because of their superior defense.

5:00 – Bob McKenzie, TSN Hockey Insider

TSN Hockey Insider Bob McKenzie joined the program to talk about the impact John Tavares' injury will have on NHL participation in South Korea for 2018. The injury is just one more reason why the owners will not want the players in South Korea. In Vancouver 2010, the players for through the tournament mostly unscathed but injuries to players like Tavares, Barkov, Zuccarello and Kopecky have definitely registered with the owners. There's no hockey connection to South Korea, so it's unlikely the NHL will participate. While Canada continues to face questions about the lack of goal production from their forwards, the Canadians defense will be the toughest the USA has faced in the tournament. McKenzie also touches on the disappointing performances of Russia and the Czech Republic. The Czech team selection of players like a 42-year-old Petr Nedved was mind-blowing and the alternating of the Russian goalies was also a questionable move.

5:15 – Steve Simmons, The Toronto Sun

Steve Simmons provides his thoughts if woman’s hockey should remain in the Olympics and believes there is no question it will remain after the gold and bronze medal games. He discusses the disparity between the Canadians and Americans against the rest of the world and believes they have been able to get significantly better than the rest of the world because the North American women play one other at a variety of levels such as the NCAA. He touches on the officiating in the gold medal game and believes woman should no longer officiate games. He discusses the impact that the late Sarah Burke has made on freestyle skiing and the tribute that Canadians made with to the late Nick Zoricic by wearing denim.

5:30 – Masai Ujiri, Toronto Raptors GM

Toronto Raptors GM Masai Ujiri speaks about the lack of moves at the NBA trade deadline and why few transactions take place on deadline day. He discusses his approach to making trades and why he believes it’s important to address the current roster while also building for the future. He touches on why the team has been able to come together as Jonas Valanciunas and Patrick Patterson have taken on larger roles and Kyle Lowry’s future with the Raptors. He discusses the strides that the organization has been able to make this season and believes the team is a few years away from really making an impact.

6:00 – Paul Maurice, Winnipeg Jets Head Coach

Paul Maurice speaks about Russia's disappointing result against Finland and the Fin's terrific execution of the trap. He believes the countries with less skill were able to develop a defensive game that helped nullify the differences in talent that contributed to more competitive games. He provides his thoughts on Canada’s semifinal meeting with the United States on Sunday and believes Canada will have a strong offensive game. He discusses the differences between the larger ice surface compared to the North American ice surface and believes the North American style of game is beginning to find it’s way in the KHL. He recalls his experience in 2002 with the Carolina Hurricanes and compares the fitness level of that team to his current roster and discusses how he’s changed his approach through the years.

6:15 – Darren Dreger, TSN Hockey Insider

Darren Dreger speaks about the make up of team Canada men's team and why he believes the Canadians need to play with a little more individual play. He touches on Phil Kessel’s terrific play for the Americans and why he feels Kessel will be the first Leaf to score 40 or more goals since Mats Sundin’s 2001-2002 season when he scored 41. He touches on the impact of the John Tavares's injury and is surprised that Patrice Bergeron has not been slotted to play centre. He discusses why John Tavares’s injury could now be a reason for players to not play in the next Olympics and why the IOC may have to pay the NHL for players to compete in the future. He discusses the interest that teams are expected to have with Islander’s forward Thomas Vanek and defenceman Andrew MacDonald at the NHL trade deadline.

6:40 – Cheryl Pounder, TSN Women’s Hockey Analyst / Gold Medalist with Team Canada

Cheryl Pounder speaks about the Canadian woman’s 3-2 overtime win over the United States and compares the poor officiating of the game to the 2002 gold medal game in Salt Lake City. She discusses the impact that Kevin Dineen has had on the team and his ability to juggle the lines and believes Dineen’s NHL coaching background helped the team buy into his approach. She talks about Finland’s disappointing loss to Sweden and believes the Fins will elevate their game at the next Olympics. She touches on Hayley Wickenheiser final run with the woman’s Olympic team and the passing of the torch to Jayna Hefford. She believes Marie-Phillip Poulin is the best female player in the world with Amanda Kessel a close second and predicts a win in the Canadian men's semifinal against the United States on Friday.

Tomorrow: Steve Simmons and Jonas Siegel in Sochi

February 19: Show In Review

The Canadian Press

Hour 1:

Dave Naylor and co-host Dave Hodge talk Olympic Hockey with Jonas Siegel and Steve Simmons, and are joined by Olympic Gold Medalist Heather Moyse. Hour 1 Audio

Hour 3:

Dave Naylor and Dave Hodge are joined by former NHL player Michael Peca, Bob McKenzie and Team Canada Women's Curling Skip Jennifer Jones. Hour 3 Audio


4:15 – Jonas Siegel, TSN 1050 Reporter

Jonas says with Tavares out, Matt Duchene will come in to take his place. It resulted in Bergeron being used as both a center as well as a winger. St Louis is also someone to consider on the top line and Babcock could take part in more shuffling vs the US.

4:30 – Heather Moyse, GOLD Medal Winner today in Women’s Bobsleigh

Heather took us through her and Kaillie Humphries run at their bobsled run, which resulted in them winning a Gold Medal. Heather talked her and Kaillie’s preparation for a bobsled run, where they try not to feel the pressure. Heather also discussed what her future holds in competition sports.

4:45 – Steve Simmons, The Toronto Sun

Steve wondered how Canada has a hard time scoring, despite the amount of elite, goal-scorers on the team. The time is now for Team Canada to start scoring or else they are going to be playing for a Bronze Medal. This entire Olympics was built around the Russia Hockey team and the fact they did not win Gold became a major disappointment.

5:15 – Bruce Arthur, The National Post

Bruce discusses the Team Canada win over Latvia today and how this could have easily gone the other way. Says that aside from defenders like Weber and Doughty, there is nobody on the forward unit that is having a great tournament and feeling very confident about their game.

5:30 – Dmitry Chesnokov, Yahoo Sports Russian Bureau

Gives us the perspective inside the Russian team and how so many of them were shell shocked by the loss to Finland today. It will take some time to analyze this and there will soon be apush for the re-birth of Russian hockey. Also feels it incredibly unfair to blame Alex Ovechkin for the loss since it is such a team game.

6:00 – Mike Peca, 2002 Gold Medalist

Mike recalls winning Gold in 2002 and the famous Wayne Gretzky tirade that wound up inspiring the team. Why it worked is that it reminded the players that they had all the talent in the world and shouldn’t need Gretzky to wake them up. He likes the use of Patrice Bergeron and why he fits so well with Sidney Crosby. Peca describes what it’s like to play for Ted Nolan and how the success at the Olympics will help his NHL stock. Feels that the Buffalo Sabres job should be his to have.

6:15 – Bob McKenzie, TSN Hockey Insider

The word on John Tavares out the gate is that “It ain’t that good” and as a result the Islanders will be one of the teams arguing against the 2018 Olympics for NHL Participation. Bob says that Finland may be smaller tan most of the “super power” countries but they have won more medals than any other country since the NHL joined the Olympics in 1998. Finland should get credit for sticking with a gameplan and a goalie while the Russian rotation has not worked out. Weak defensive play also did them in here quickly.

6:30 – Jennifer Jones, Skip, Team Canada Women’s Curling Team

After qualifying for a Gold Medal, Jennifer Jones previews what we can expect in her match against Sweden. She talks about how her heart was racing throughout her game today against Great Britain, but that's what the Olympics are about. She also discusses how her team having experience will be a big asset when competing for Gold against the Swedes, who they've already beat this Olympics.

4:15 – Jonas Siegel, TSN 1050 Reporter

Jonas discusses the use of John Tavares and if it makes more sense to have him as a winger instead of a centre. Jonas spoke to members of Team Latvia today and they are keeping things loose heading into the game tomorrow. Based on practice today, he thinks that the odd man out for the forwards is going to be Matt Duchene. This is also now Carey Price’s tournament.

4:30 – Bruce Arthur, The National Post

Bruce explains the story behind the band Pussy Riot and what’s happened to them in Sochi from protesting to being detained by the Russian gov’t. He says that to tell the true story in Russia, you have to understand that there are two Olympics going on -- the athletic and the political .

4:45 – Steve Simmons, The Toronto Sun

Steve was at the Gary Bettman / Rene Fasel press conference today and he clarified why the Stanley Cup was in Sochi. Bettman told Simmons that they never brought the Cup there on their own, they were specifically asked to do so. Discusses Ted Nolan and why you can never count out a team that he coaches. This is exactly the style that Nolan loves to play.

5:00 – Darren Dreger, TSN Hockey Insider

Darren discusses that while you have to respect Latvia, this should still be an opponent that Canada should not fear. Kessel and JVR have played terrifically and the Leafs coaches and management are happy with what they see.

5:15 – Christine Brennan, USA Today

She said that the Ice Dance was not fixed. This was not a 10th place team winning a medal. The US team was quicker and more athletic. Whether people like it or not, Ice Dancing is like picking which movie should win as Oscar. She feels that if the Canadians had a problem with the coaching, they should have spoke up earlier and made a change. She was surprised to see the Canadians make those comments.

5:30 – Bal Gasol, Federal Minister of State for Sport

Minister Gasol is fresh off of his trip to Sochi. He says that sports leads to a much healthier community. It makes it worth while to fund amateur sports and the government is not caught up on medal counts. They won’t be disappointed if they bring back fewer medals than Vancouver 2010. All the sports Federations will sit down after the Olympics as they determine how the funding should continue. Politically he found Sochi pleasant and safe. He also defended Prime Minister Harper’s decision not to attend the games. He made an exception in Vancouver but that was it.

6:00 – Pat Quinn, Former Team Canada Head Coach in 2002 and 2006

European teams really rise to the occasion during the Olympics and their games are rooted deeply in defensive hockey. Jokes about forgetting Tuuka Raask’s name even though he drafted him with the Maple Leafs. Sometimes you just face a hot goalie like Canada did in Turin vs Martin Gerber or in 1998 vs Dominik Hasek. He recalls the respect the 2002 team had for the coaches while in 2006 the Olympic team was immature and didn’t handle the process well.

6:15 – Bob McKenzie, TSN Hockey Insider

With South Korea not being a hockey powerhouse he doesn’t think the NHL and the NHLPA will push for inclusion. It’s nice that Slovenia and Latvia won a couple of games but it’s not a big boost to international hockey. Bob does not see Latvia being as much of a threat as Switzerland could have been. It’s advantage Canada tomorrow in the Q-Finals.

6:30 – Scott MacArthur, TSN 1050 Blue Jays Reporter

Scott says that the words of Alex Anthopoulos have mot matched the action and results and the fans are growing impatient. There are not many other options out there to add a pitcher since it has to be via trade. Now, AA is being asked to deal someone like Marcus Stroman. Makes the Jays hesitant to deplete the prospect cupboard any further.

4:15 – Gary Lawless, TSN 1290 and The Winnipeg Free Press

Gary joined us live from Sochi to discuss the backlash today with the selfie that Speed Skater Brittney Schussler took with Vladamir Putin. He said that just because she took the photo, it doesn’t mean she supports all his political views. Many of the media is already compromised by taking part in the games and covering them. He described the scene from Canada House when Putin made an appearance and spoke to Canadian officials and athletes.

4:30 – Steve Milton, The Hamilton Spectator

Steve says that the new scoring system makes it tougher to fix events like ice dancing, but, he feels the some of the marks given were “ridiculous.” He explains the judging needs to put skaters against a standard as opposed to other skaters.

5:00 – Darren Dreger, TSN Hockey Insider

Darren discusses the men’s side of Olympic hockey and how aside from Phil Kessel, he’s amazed at how many teams and stars are having trouble scoring. Sidney Crosby will always be a “lightning rod” and everyone obsesses over his stats. Why the Swiss are an enormous threat to Canada.

5:15 – Victor Kraatz, Fomer World Champion Figure Skater and 2-time Olympian with partner Shae Lynn Bourne

Amidst the Moir/Virtue controversy, Kraatz explains Olympic Ice Dance judging and how they look for very precise element in the skaters’ programs. Also mentions how Moir and Virtue have grown the sport on an almost-global scale.

5:30 – Steve Simmons, Sun Media & TSN The Reporters (live from Sochi)

NHLers at the Olympics might be coming to an end, Simmons explains why players love it but the league hates it.

Finally covers the weather issues there and the improved play of SWE/FIN/SUI’s goalies in Women’s hockey.

6:15 – Bob McKenzie, TSN Hockey Insider

Bob says that too much has been made of Sidney Crosby and he thinks it’s overblown. He discusses the rise of Swiss hockey and how they are a serious player in the international game.

6:30 – Tessa Bonhomme, Women’s Hockey Analyst and Fmr Member of National Team

Tessa explains where a lot of the hatred between Canada/USA comes from. Memories of a brawl she was a part of and why the game is still growing. The game is a big draw for the IOC and it’s still a legitimate sport for the Olympics. Signs in Sochi point to other countries finally catching up.
