Recap:

12:15 p.m. Claude Loiselle (Assistant GM of the Toronto Maple Leafs)

Loiselle broke the news that Joffrey Lupul will not be travelling to New Jersey and the team is still waiting on reports of his injury. Loiselle thinks the hit on Lupul last night was an unfortunate and if he is out, they hope JVR, Tyler Bozak, Kessel, Matt Frattin can step up. Jake Gardiner can't go back to the AHL and has to clear waivers if he does. He is ready to be in the NHL and develop with the team. Ryan O'Byrne brings depth due to his size and is a physical player who is able to finish a check. Loiselle was not able to comment on the possibility of getting Luongo. He did mention that the Leafs spoke to Miikka Kiprusoff. Loiselle thinks that Kiprusoff has playoff experience which Ben Scrivens and James Reimer are lacking in. Veteran goaltenders will be able to help younger goalies when things are rough in the playoffs. This was the reason behind trying to acquire the Kiprusoff during the trade deadline.

1:05 p.m. Ray Ferraro (TSN Hockey Analyst)

The problem with concussions is that there is no way to know exactly when Joffrey Lupul will be back. Concussions affect players in different ways. Ferraro thinks that the two guys who don't play on the ice too much seemed as if they wanted to make a physical presence. Unfortunately they hit Lupul at the same time but doesn't think it was a dirty hit though. It is still unsure with Sidney Crosby's injury, whether it may be a concussion or just a jaw injury. Ferraro also weighed in on the tight standings in the Eastern Conference right now. He did not think that Philly would be in the playoff race at the moment due to losing so many defencemen. The Washington Capitals can be dangerous if they do make the playoffs because the team seems to finally be getting things together. Alex Ovechkin has improved as well as Mike Green and the defence core.

2:35 p.m. Scott MacArthur (TSN 1050 Blue Jays beat reporter)

Jose Bautista wants to play tonight. His injury is described as a minor twist/general soreness. Most players will tell you that they have no "ill will" with John Farrell leaving. Adam Lind likes John Gibbon's presence more because he felt that he was getting mixed messages from Farrell last year. Dwayne Murphy was telling him to swing earlier while Farrell was telling him to take a more conservative approach. The Blue Jays have moved on. Jose Bautista would rather Farrell be in Boston if that's where he wants to be than be in Toronto and not want to be here. When The Red Sox played the Jays in Dunedin earlier this spring, a reporter asked Farrell if he wishes he was still with the Blue Jays due to their current roster and Farrell said "Well if memory serves, I was traded". MacArthur doesn't think that Farrell handled the trade well. Right now, Farrell is in the city he wants to be and it is best for Alex Anthopoulous to have John Gibbons than Farrell now.

3:05 p.m. Alex Marvez (FOXSports.com NFL Insider)

There was a lot of faith in the Baltimore Ravens dressing room. Brendon Ayanbadejo was outspoken and he tried to explain it to some players on the team that some are born gay. He tried to have his team understand what he was trying to advocate. It has been very difficult to bring your family to an NFL game because the prices are through the roof. The NFL needs to reduce the price of their tickets and cut back on some of the money they are making. However, Marvez doesn't think this will happen. The NFL has other things to worry about first than to tackle people who gamble each game.

3:30 p.m. Tim Tschida (Former MLB Umpire)

When umpires hear comments like what Bautista said about umpires, it is usually forgotten the next day. Tshida understands that players are frustrated but Bautista probably regrets what he said. Umpires don't have the luxury to change the way they call a certain player if they are continuously getting hackled. If an official choice to punish a player by calling him out on purpose, it is unacceptable in baseball and other sports. With so much media covering baseball right now, the problem is that every night there's going to be at least one ejection. The media will always cover this highlight and show it repeatedly but they rarely talk about the right calls that the umpires make - it's just the way it is. Umpires don't win or lose games for teams. A bad call can sometimes affect the way a team plays but at the end of the day, the teams are the ones who win or lose the games.

3:45 p.m. Ryan Dempster (Boston Red Sox pitcher)

Dempster made a quick call from the Red Sox dugout to speak with Hayes. He thinks he is getting better as a pitcher as he gets older. His ability to command a baseball is better and he just has to keep practicing and pitching. Knowing what its like to pitch at Wrigley Field, it is also special to have a chance to play at Fenway Park because it is so historical and the fans are very passionate. Dempster is excited to be back in Canada tonight despite the fact he never seems to get to pitch at the Rogers Centre. He looked back on playing on Team Canada in the World Junior Championships and said he always watched the Blue Jays growing up as a kid.

Recap:

12:30 p.m. Jonas Siegel (TSN 1050 Leafs reporter)

Randy Carlyle says they won't put Jake Gardiner in right now if they don't think that he will contribute to the team. The Leafs are not a player development team at the moment. Siegel says Gardiner may not be playing the way Carlyle likes him to play. Sometimes veteran coaches may already have their mind set on what they look for in a player and simply will not put certain players on the ice. For example, Ron Wilson never played Nazim Kadri even if people thought he had potential. Carlyle likes guys such as Mark Fraser and Frazer McLaren who stays in their comfort zone.

1:05 p.m. Ray Ferraro (TSN Hockey Analyst)

After ripping Hayes about his new TV career and his choice of sweaters, Ray talked about teams not giving away first rounders any more because they need young players who aren't being paid a lot yet to help build the team. The Minnesota Wild gave up high prospects (first and second rounder) for Jason Pomenville. He has another year in his contract and is a very versatile player. Buffalo came to the conclusion that they will not be making the playoffs so Ryan Miller may be gone in the summer. The Calgary Flames are stuck because it's too late to rebuild. They are a year or two behind which is why there are no high prospects in their minor system right now. Its a mess in Calgary. Ray also weighed in on Patrice Bergeron's latest concussion and also had a brief comment on Luongo's post trade deadline presser.

1:30 p.m. Jim Jackson (Philadelphia Flyers TV play-by-play announcer)

The Flyers still feel as if they still have a shot at the playoffs but injuries keep piling up. However, they have been doing quite well at the moment. Goaltending hasn't been the problem or solution for Philly this year but Ilya Bryzgalov hasn't been bad either. However, he hasn't been the kind of guy who steals wins for the team. Claude Giroux hasn't lacked in leadership but he may be trying to do a little too much on the ice because he is the captain. In some cases, it is easy to blame the guy who is the face of the franchise but Jackson doesn't think that Philly's struggles is due to Giroux's leadership skills.

2:30 p.m. Steve Simmons (Toronto Sun)

Found it strange that Jose Bautista called out the umpires after only two games. Bautista should focus on his own game and not how the calls are being made because he can't win against the umpires. Simmons has written an article today that James Reimer must feel like "chopped liver" because Dave Nonis has been looking to upgrade the Leafs goaltending. However, Reimer should understand that this is all business. Leading up to the deadline, the Leafs number one priority was to get a quality goaltender because the team has not had this in almost eight years. Roburto Luongo will be meaningless and interest in him from the Leafs organization will simmer down if the team and Reimer have a stellar playoff run.

3:05 p.m. Dan Shulman (TSN & ESPN)

Nobody knows why Roy Halladay has been struggling and he doesn't seem like the pitcher he was a couple years ago. Shulman thinks there's something going on with Halladay because the balls he is throwing is around 80 mph instead of his usual 90 mph. Doesn't think Halladay has enough on his resume to get into the Baseball Hall of Fame yet. However, Pedro Martinez will most like be inducted soon. Whether a player is wrong, they can't win against the umpires so Jose Bautista might as well back off. The Toronto Blue Jays need to get it together because expectations are very high right now. Kevin Ware's injury was horrifying and devastating. He will probably not be back next season. Andrew Wiggins hasn't chosen which college he wants to play at yet. Shulman says that as good as Wiggins is, going to Kentucky wouldn't be a good idea because the school is loaded at the moment. Shulman doesn't think that Florida State's basketball style of play would be a good match for Wiggin's style of play.

3:30 p.m. Connor McDavid (Erie Otters & OHL Rookie of the Year)

After being named OHL Rookie of the YEar early today at just "15" years old, McDavid said he took a little bit of heat from his teammates after being deemed one of the best upcoming young players in hockey right now but it is all in good fun. Some advice McDavid would give to Shawn Day, another Canadian up-and-comer, is the advice that John Tavres gave to McDavid: "be yourself and keep doing what you're doing and you will be alright." McDavid's favourite player is Sidney Crosby and was lucky enough to sit in Mario Lemieux's suite to watch the game and meet Crosby in the dressing room after the Pittsburgh Penguins game. That was one of his favourite moments in his life. People have high expectations for McDavid and it may difficult to be put on such a high pedestal at such a young age, but he says all he has to do is set his own own goals and live up to his own expectations.

Recap:

12:30pm Matt Stajan - Calgary Flames forward

As the fire sale in Calgary continues, Flames' forward Matt Stajan chatted with Hayes and Noodles about the feel in the Flames' locker room right now. There's a mental aspect when you lose guys you have played with for years. The players are looking for updates as things happen, but at this time of year, Stajan explained, you kind of have to let things play out. Stajan said the team has been making blatant mental mistakes and just haven't been able to put it back together. On the topic of Kipper, he has been the centre-piece for the Flames for years. Stajan said he's an absolutely incredible goalie and great teammate to have. Stajan has enjoyed his time in Calgary and playing on a top-line. It's a difficult time out in Calgary, but they have to keep working hard as a team.

1:40pm Jason Botchford - The Vancouver Province

The Canucks have acquired Derek Roy from Dallas and Botchford chatted with Hayes and Noodles about the situation in Vancouver. Botchford explained that the Roy deal may open up the ability for the Canucks to trade Luongo now because they don't have to get a center back in return. However, he feels the more Mike Gillis talks about trading Luongo in the media, the less likely it could happen. Is Gillis trying to drum up some interest in Luongo? Sounds that way to Botchford. Either Luongo or Schneider will be gone by next year. There are still going to be teams that will bite on the Luongo bait because he has been a solid goalie for the past ten years, according to Botchford. In Botchford's opinion, Gillis helped solidify the Canucks roster and completely rearranged the way Alain Vigneault coached the team to get them to the Stanley Cup finals.

2:05pm Brendan Kennedy (Toronto Star) and Scott MacArthur (TSN Jays reporter) - In-studio

The Jays host the Indians in their home-opener tonight. Brendan Kennedy and Scott MacArthur joined Hayes in-studio to chat everything Jays. Kennedy believes the fans are very excited to get the season started after a long spring. TSN's own Scotty Mac chatted about the fans who missed out on the back to back World Series team and are excited for this year's team. The windows have been taken out in the restaurant and has added to the atmosphere in the old Dome. The Jays are really hitting that 18-35 years-old demographic of fans, according to Kennedy. On the topic of injuries, MacArthur told Hayes the team has enough solid players to deal with injuries if they happen. There are ways Gibbons can mix this team every night that will help them win without having to call up minor-league players. The guys chatted about the Jays' depth and the expectations the team needs to live up to this season. With Gibbons back as manager, and the line-up this team has, there is a feeling in the city that it's playoffs or bust.

3:20pm Jayson Stark - ESPN Baseball

The man who has covered more than 30 spring trainings chatted with Hayes on what to expect from the Jays this year. Stark agrees that the team is built for "playoffs or bust," but because this is such a talented team, he advises people to just sit back and enjoy it. This is going to be a murderous division and almost all the teams could have a winning record. Stark also touched on the Yankees and the financial mess they've become. The team has invested so much money, but scoring runs--even when they're healthy--is going to be the Yankees' biggest problem. Other teams have money now, and according to Stark, the Dodgers have even more money than the Yankees. On the topic of Jay-Z becoming Robinson Cano's agent, this is a big deal because Stark was convinced Cano was not going to stay a Yankee. Jay-Z is a Yankee fan and he understands the importance of Cano staying in New York. Stark suspects this will keep Cano in New York for a little bit longer.

Recap:

1:05pm Ray Ferraro - TSN Hockey Analyst

The NHL trade deadline is approaching fast and Ferraro weighed in on some of the speculations and rumours. When it comes to the Leafs, in a perfect world, Ray would add a veteran goalie because Reimer lacks the playoff experience the team will need, however, in terms of the Luongo rumours, Ferraro doesn't see the Leafs going after him because they would have to give up too much. Right now, Reimer is stopping the puck and has been doing a decent job with his .920 save percentage. Kadri will be an RFA at the end of this year, and Nonis will have some thinking to do in terms of his contract. Ferraro said it's hard to gauge an extension on a player who has not played that long in the NHL, but has played phenomenal. He looks like a completely different player this year. Will it turn into a Subban-like situation? The guys also touched on Crosby's status and if he could return this year. Is he still in the running for the Hart trophy? There is still all kinds of dental work to be done on Sid, but he's still 10 points ahead in the scoring race, and if he comes back, he has Dupuis and Kunitz to help his keep his points up.

2:05pm John Gibbons - Blue Jays Manager

It was a long spring and the Jays are ready to go. Hayes chatted with Gibby about what to expect from this year's team and getting prepared for opening day. On the topic of chemistry in the line up, Gibbons says there is no substitute for talent in this business and that's why there is so excitement around this team. As far as determining the line up, the team was put together with certain guys to play certain positions. With regards to Romero, he was struggling this spring and Happ was pitching well so the best thing for Ricky was to stay in the minors and work through it. There is no reason to believe Bautista is not back to full health. Gibbons told Hayes, Bautista is looking like his old self and is ready to go this season. Encarnacion will play first base for the most part this season with Lind as DH, but they could alternate. The Jays host the Indians at the Rogers Center tomorrow with Dickey getting the start on the mound.

3:05pm James Duthie & Pierre LeBrun (In Studio)

Duthie and LeBrun joined Hayes in-studio and looked at how the NHL playoffs are shaping up. LeBrun had predicted the Rangers and Blues to make the cup final, but has seen the error in his ways. Duthie had initially predicted only one Canadian eastern team to make the playoffs--the Senators. The guys reflected on how surprising this season has been and how off-base their initial predictions were. As the NHL trade deadline approaches and the rumour mill churns, Duthie and Lebrun looked at the possibilities around the league. Ryan Clowe is expected to me moved out of San Jose, even though the team is starting to turn it around. The Stars are debating on signing or trading Jagr, and the Islanders could end up rolling with the roster they have. The Eastern conference is wide-open now, which makes for interesting circumstances near the deadline. Who will stay? And who will go?
