4:30 – Michael Lopez, Brown University / Department of Biostatistics

Michael Lopez, Ph.D. Candidate in Department of Biostatistics of Brown University discussed his recent study, which looks at the NHL standings system. Prior to the 2013 season, there was more of an incentive of NHL teams playing overtime against nonconference opponents than conference opponents. Between 2005-2013, He also looked at the Toronto Maple Leafs and how they have done the opposite, by playing more games against conference opponents than nonconference.

5:00 – Bob McKenzie, TSN Hockey Insider

Bob joined TSN Drive to discuss the trade rumors surrounding Ryan Miller and the possible teams that will look to acquire him. Bob believes the Blues make the most sense for Miller and Jarosalv Halak could be a name that will be involved. Ryan Kesler is drawing a lot of interest from many teams, but has a no-movement clause so it’s up to him if he wants to be moved. Martin St.Louis did ask for a trade and by Bob's understanding, he asked to be traded to one team, the New York Rangers.

5:15 – Mark Grimes, Toronto City Councilor

Mark Grimes, Toronto City Councilor joined TSN Drive to discuss the deal that will see BMO Field become the permanent home of the Toronto Argonauts. Mark looked at the process of getting the deal done and what will need to be done from both, MLSE and the city of Toronto. A deal would need to be done by 2015 and could cost over $100 million.

5:30 – Tim Graham, The Buffalo News

Tim was at the NFL Scouting Combine and the way Michael Sam handled himself with the media was very impressive. Tim discussed Michael Sam’s performance at the combine and doesn’t consider him a blue-chip prospect. He is, at best, a late-mid-round pick. He weighed in on Jadeveon Clowney’s impressive performance at the 40-yard dash. He also looked at where teams stand with Johnny Manziel and what he liked to see from the Buffalo Bills at the upcoming NFL Draft.

6:00 – Scott MacArthur, TSN 1050 Blue Jays Reporter

Scott joined the guys on TSN Drive to recap the Blue Jays first game of spring training. Kyle Drabek didn’t have a great performance today and was very emotional after the game. Judging by Drabek’s body language when he met with the media, it looks like he is putting too much pressure on himself to grab the 5th spot in the pitching rotation. Jose Bautista looks as good as he says he feels, as well as Melky Cabrera.

6:15 – Darren Dreger, TSN Hockey Insider

Darren looked at the latest setback to Dave Bolland and may be days, maybe weeks before we see him in the lineup. He also looked the possibility of the Leafs shopping Nikolai Kulemin leading up to the trade deadline. Darren looked at the teams that make sense to acquire Ryan Callahan, including the St.Louis Blues, considering lack of depth in forwards. Darren also discussed the possibility.

6:30 – Howard Bryant, ESPN.com Sr Writer & ESPN The Magazine

The NFL is very serious when it comes to possibly moving the Super Bowl from Arizona based on their decision regarding Arizona State Bill 1062. Going to be interesting how Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer handles this situation and very curious to see what happens if she signs the bill. Howard looked at the latest news surrounding the NFL instituting a rule that would have players being penalized 15 yards for using the N-word.

4:40 – Steve Simmons, The Toronto Sun, Final Segment from Sochi, Russia

Steve calls in to recap Team Canada’s (men’s hockey) overall performance in Sochi. Says they were the first unbeaten team (in NHL Olympic era) and that’s because of how they were good in every aspect of the game. Simmons also says that Team Sweden lost because they didn’t pick the right players and the coaching staff decided not to play some of the better players enough (in particular, Oliver Ekman-Larsson). Finally, he talks about the ridiculous Nicklas Backstrom suspension.

5:00 – Bob McKenzie, TSN Hockey Insider

Bob gives a brief overview of Team Canada’s (men’s hockey) Sochi performance and talks about the balanced core of the team. He then addresses the Martin St. Louis to NYR rumours and how it’s unlikely that it will be a 1-for-1 deal, especially since there’s some dollar issues for Tampa here. To conclude, Bob discusses the possibility of NHLers in Sochi and how he doesn’t feel they will be there, but that can definitely change as it is in the owners’ hands.

5:30 – Cyd Ziegler, Founder of Outsports.com

With Jason Collins playing his first NBA game since coming out, Cyd Zeigler explains why that situation ended up being just another guy doing his job. He also talks about how Michael Sam is handling the NFL Combine well as the focus has shifted towards his athletic ability. Zeigler also explains why US Lobbyist Jack Burkman (who wants to draft a “no gays in NFL” Bill) will lose any battle if his proposed Bill makes it through to congress as it will only bond the pro-LGBT community.

6:00 – Brian Williams, CTV Olympic Host

Brian says how much he loved these past Olympics. They are the first one in a long time that he experienced as a viewer on home soil and is ecstatic about the pride that the entire multicultural country showed. He also discusses the importance of NHLers at the Olympics and how it’s been great for the Winter games.

6:15 – Darren Dreger, TSN Hockey Insider

Dreger explains how the players don’t have much leverage in terms of returning to Olympic hockey unless big names like Sidney Crosby step up. He feels skeptical that the NHLers will be there and that the owners will use John Tavares as the poster-boy for not participating in South Korea. He feels it’s a longshot and the IOC will have to step up to make it happen.
