12:33pm Claude Loiselle – Leafs Assistant General Manager
Loiselle spoke about Morgan Rielly and said he is playing like a veteran after just one game and being a -3. He has a great hockey sense. When analyzing the teams start Loiselle said they have been lucky but it’s a long season. He said they’ve called up a lot of young kids to replace their vets and they've been playing well but it's hard to make any judgements so early in the season. Loiselle also addressed what it’s like managing the cap when they are so close to the limit and also what he thought of the comments made by Clarke MacArthur taking jabs at Randy Carlyle saying it was unfortunate and sometimes its best to say nothing when you get traded.
1:05pm Ray Ferraro – TSN Hockey Analyst
Ferraro spoke about the Peter Laviolette firing and said the wrong man was let go. Despite a great track record of drafting, it’s their free agents who have let them down plus management has overpaid many of them including Mark Streit who got a big deal when he is already 35 years old. Ferraro also talked about the Leafs 3-0 start and the play of Morgan Rielly and Jonathan Bernier.
2:15pm Ryan O’Halloran – Florida Sun-Times Union
O’Halloran mentioned that the point differential for the Jags this season is now at -112, with the Giants not far behind at -100. He then addressed the just released point spread of -28 which the Broncos have this weekend against the Jaguars and despite the spread, he’s still taking Denver. O’Halloran also said the Jags have no interest in Tebow.
2:20pm Calvin Watkins - ESPN Dallas.com
Watkins talked about the crucial interception made towards the end of the game last night by Tony Romo against Denver. He said fans are upset at Romo but also at the defence for giving up so many points. When asked who the best team in the division is, Watkins believed it’s the Eagles especially on offense. Jason Garrett’s job is secure for this year but if they don’t reach the playoffs he could very likely get bounced.
2:33pm Brian Leetch – Manager NHL Player Safety
Leetch came on the show and joked about playing 15 whole games in a Maple Leafs uniform but he enjoyed every minute of it. He addressed the concerns in regards to NHL player safety and what the league is doing to make the game better. He said his role is to watch games and discuss among several former players any incidents that could warrant suspensions. He said keeping helmets on is a way to make fighting safer but its hard to do anything if you get punched in the face. This way when players fall on the ice they have a better chance of not hurting themselves. Leetch, who was known as a great offensive player and defensive player, also had some thoughts on Jake Gardiner being criticized for his play in his own zone.
3:05pm Jim Henderson – Saints Radio Play by Play
Henderson spoke about how important it has been for the Saints to have Sean Payton back in the fold as their head man and how they have been able to put together the only undefeated record in the NFC at 5-0.
3:10pm Bob Kravitz – Indianapolis Star
Kravitz looked back on yesterdays win over the Seahawks and the play of Andrew Luck. He also made some comparables with Luck and Peyton Manning.
3:33pm Jerry Crasnick – ESPN Baseball
Crasnick joined the show from Tampa ahead of Game 3 between the Red Sox-Rays and discussed the comments made by David Price calling members of the media “nerds”. Crasnick also talked about the Dodgers deciding to start Clayton Kershaw on just 3 days rest and how they must not have any faith in Ricky Nolasco.
