Recap:

4:30 – CFL on TSN Analyst Duane Ford

Joined the program in advance of this weekend's CFL Scouting combine. The combine has come a long way from its infancy but still doesn't attract all the best players due to Redshirt Juniors at NCAA schools not at the combine, yet eligible for draft. With the improvement of CIS Football, the days of picking players from NCAA schools over similar players from CIS schools may be over. Ford also discussed how the NFL pushing their draft back to May would be negative for the CFL and touched on the proposed pass interference rule change for the coming season.

5:00 – TSN Hockey Insider Bob McKenzie

Jumped on the program to discuss Sean Day being granted Exceptional Player status by Hockey Canada to play in the OHL as a 15-year-old. Day is the fourth player to receive the distinction after John Tavares, Aaron Ekblad and Connor McDavid. He also weighed in on Mike Komisarek waiving his no-movement clause to head to the Marlies. Will the Leafs use their compliance buyout on Komisarek at season's end?

5:30 – Basketball Mogul Sonny Vaccaro

Joined the program to discuss the Ed O'Bannon lawsuit against the NCAA, Electronic Arts and Collegiate Licensing Company. O'Bannon, along with former college stars such as Bill Russell and Oscar Robertson, are claiming their rights have been violated by not getting paid following graduation for the use of their images and names. Vaccaro is at the center of the groundbreaking case and discussed the ramifications should they win the Class Action lawsuit. He also offers his opinion of Big Ten Commissioner Jim Delany's comments about the conference dropping big money sports, such as football, and operating on a Division III level should the lawsuit be successful.

6:00 – CFL Commissioner Mark Cohon and TSN President Stew Johnston

Joined TSN Drive in studio to discuss the new broadcast deal between TSN and the Canadian Football League. The league's current contract with TSN ends following the 2013 season, and the new multi-platform deal begins in 2014, ensuring TSN will be the home for all things CFL for years to come. Johnston and Cohon discussed the various aspects of the deal and what the addition of an Ottawa franchise for the 2014 season meant to negotiations. They also touch on the impact this deal will have for football in southern Ontario, specifically in the Toronto and Hamilton markets.

6:15 – TSN Hockey Insider Darren Dreger

Weighed in on Jake Gardiner's return to the Leafs versus Tampa Wednesday night and addressed the Mike Komisarek situation. Is there is a move on the horizon? He also touched on the Joffrey Lupul suspension, the call-up of Ryan Hamilton from the Marlies and whether visors will be mandatory in the NHL next season.

Hour 2:

Dave is joined by TSN Hockey Insider Bob McKenzie, NCAA March Madness Analyst Sam Mitchell, and Toronto Argonauts Wide Receiver Chad Owens. Hour 2 Audio


Recap:

4:30 – ESPN NFL Analyst Herm Edwards

Explained how he liked the new rule change for running backs. The rule changes are to make football safer, not just at the pro level, but all levels. As the game goes forward, the players are being bigger, stronger, and faster so the safety of the game is important. There will be a change when it comes to the way players hit and block, but there will always be a physical presence.

4:45 – TSN Maple Leafs Beat Reporter Jonas Siegel

Explained how Randy Carlyle has always been vocal at practice but has really turned up the volume this week. Most of the games the Leafs have lost have been close, it has just been a few minutes here and there where they fall apart and lose. James Reimer has been a bit off, his timing hasn't been the same since he came back.

5:00 – TSN Hockey Insider Bob McKenzie

Discussed the General Managers meeting and the voting on visors. The NHLPA will now have to vote on whether or not they want to grandfather mandatory visors. When it comes to officiating, in previous years there was communication between coaches and referees and today there is a "wall" where coaches can't get a word in.

5:30 – TSN Analyst Sam Mitchell

Discussed the Raptors choice to let Grantland behind the curtains to their analytical strategies and the SportsVU program. He believes that it is possible that LeBron James will go back to Cleveland after he wins a few championships. He tried to recruit superstars to go to Cleveland and when he couldn't he joined a team with superstars.

5:45 – Toronto Argonauts Wide Receiver Chad Owens

Talked about his pursuit in MMA. He has always had an interest in it and this off season he has been practicing and training and has been given the opportunity to participate in an amateur fight on April 6th. He explains that there is a risk, but also states that everything in life has risks.

Dave and guest co-host Dave Feschuk chat about the re-calling of Jake Gardiner with Leafs GM Dave Nonis and TSN Hockey Insiders Darren Dreger and Bob McKenzie.

Hour 3:

Dave is joined by Canada Basketball President and CEO Wayne Parish as well as TSN Hockey Insider Bob McKenzie. Hour 3 Audio


Recap:

4:30 – TSN 1050 Blue Jays Beat Reporter Scott MacArthur

Joins Dave from Florida and updates the status of pitcher Ricky Romero. He will be playing in a minor league game tomorrow and will make changes in his mechanical pitching where he now has to just adjust his hips. It is just a minor tweak but they want to address it before the season starts because he hasn't looked the same.

5:00 – TSN Hockey Insider Darren Dreger

Discussed Jake Gardiner's return to the Maple Leafs. He can make a difference for the Leafs because he is a different player than Korbinian Holzer provided that he plays the way he played last season. Randy Carlyle is searching for chemistry right now, and he has it with the top line. The Matt Fratin, Joffrey Lupul, and Nazem Kadri line has been looking good together as well. Corey Perry signed with the Ducks and there is no doubt that he overpaid Ryan Getzlaf, but he had to do it in order to keep Perry and Getzlaf together.

5:15 – Maple Leafs General Manager Dave Nonis

Discussed the return of Jake Gardiner and believes that he has the ability to get the puck out of the Leafs' defensive zone. His play has improved dramatically over the last five or six games and he is ready to play at the NHL level. He doesn't think that the team has played poorly in the last five games, the game in Winnipeg last week was disappointing because there was not compete. The wishlist for the trade deadline is a player that can contribute and add to making the team better.

5:30 – ESPN Voice of MLB and NCAA Basketball Dan Shulman

Previews the March Madness Tournament and makes note of all of the Canadians that are in the tournament. There is not a single team in this tournament this year that is as good as Kentucky was last year.

6:00 – Canada Basketball President and CEO Wayne Parrish

Commented on the increased amount of Canadians that are in the March Madness NCAA Tournament this year. Canada has become more prominent in basketball and scouts south of the border are beginning to recruit Canadians. High school programs in Canada haven't put the energy and dollars behind programs in developing athletes in Canada in order to keep them and that is why so many athletes go south of the border to develop.

6:15 – TSN Hockey Insider Bob McKenzie

Discussed the return of Jake Gardiner to the Leafs lineup as Korbinian Holzer is sent back to the Marlies. The Leafs performance last year is a reminder for them to avoid missing the playoffs. Joffrey Lupul was getting the fans going his first game back by encouraging them to keep cheering and keep the ACC loud. If the Ducks wouldn't have committed to both Ryan Getzlaf and Corey Perry, they would have lost two key players.

Dave is joined by guest co-host Steve Simmons and chats with Dave Feschuk and TSN Hockey Insiders Bob McKenzie and Darren Dreger about the Leafs team moving forward and the Ryan Miller and Patrick Kaleta Buffalo Sabres' drama.


Audio:

Hour 1:

Steve Simmons co-hosts with Dave and are joined by Dave Feschuk for the full hour. Hour 1 Audio

Hour 2:

Dave is joined by TSN Hockey Insider Bob McKenzie, USA Today Columnist Christine Brennan, and Bruce Arthur of the National Post. Hour 2 Audio

Hour 3:

Dave and Steve are joined by Marc Edelman, associate Professor of Law and TSN Hockey Insider Darren Dreger. Hour 3 Audio


Recap:

4:00 – Dave Feschuk, Toronto Star (4-5pm)

Steve Simmons co-hosts with Dave and previews the NCAA Basketball tournament as it is almost underway. The tournament puts players on a big stage at such a young age. Some of the players get so much media attention during the tournament and may not ever make it to the NBA.

5:00 – TSN Hockey Insider Bob McKenzie

Gives his insight on the Patrick Kaleta comments. When the media went to Ryan Miller, he stated that he was going to tell Kaleta everything that he told the media after said that he was being dramatic. Miller is frustrated and it looks like the Sabres are close to blowing up. A lot of Maple Leaf fans are hitting the panic button. There will be talks about the officiating at the GM meetings.

5:30 – Christine Brennan of USA Today

Discussed the state of figure skating and how there is a decline. It has changed all around the world and the big problem is the attendance. The World Championships are always an after thought post Olympics and they were always packed. It was such a shock that the defending world champion couldn't sell out an arena just 11 months prior to the Olympics in Sochi. Patrick Chan fell twice on triple jumps, put his hand down on another triple jump and he was making so many mistakes. The new point system is anonymous and a bit confusing.

5:45 – Bruce Arthur

Is down in Florida and watched Ricky Romero pitch where he was struggling with pitches. The Jays are committed to putting the best team on the field and isn't convinced that Romero is ready for this. The Jays have a good idea of the range of performances on the players. This team has enough guys that don't have to be great to succeed. Jose Reyes will come out of camp ready to play this season because the level of play at the WBC was so high.

6:00 – Marc Edelman, associate Professor of Law

Discussed the level of legality when it comes to fantasy sports. He compared state laws and federal laws in the United States and touches upon what is considered to be gambling and illegal. If there is a skill required in fantasy sports, then it is not considered to be gambling because it is stated that gambling is based solely on chance.

6:15 – TSN Hockey Insider Darren Dreger

Believes that Saturday's line up is "the team". In a condensed season, there isn't a lot of practice time to get messages across to the team. Randy Carlyle had a bag skate at the MasterCard Centre today. This skate was designed to get the attention of the players. Mikhail Grabovski wasn't used in the shootout and has been struggling offensively. There has to be a way to get Jake Gardiner back into the NHL, he is a puck moving defenceman and the Leafs don't have that outside of Dion Phaneuf.
