Bob McKenzie speaks about the possibility of the Maple Leafs starting Drew MacIntyre over James Reimer in one of the their next two games.

He believes if the Leafs miss the playoffs that changes in personnel will likely made and suggests Jake Gardiner could be one of them. He believes the Leafs are looking to improve at centre and on defense and thinks the organization might be willing to part with Nazem Kadri to upgrade at one of both of those positions.

Kevin Weekes provides his thoughts on the Toronto Maple Leafs goaltending situation and believes the Leafs have one of the better goaltending tandems in the NHL. He touches on James Reimer’s solid season for the club last year and why the felt they needed to upgrade on their goaltending. He believes the Leafs have mishandled him over the past couple of weeks, specifically Randy Carlyle’s comments regarding his play. He suggests the Leafs will need him as the season unwinds and feels he will have some trade value should the Leafs decide to move him during the off-season. He talks about the Leafs tendency to get out-shot and believes the team needs to improve their defensive play.

6:00 – Shannon Szabados, Columbus Cottonmouths / Olympic Gold Medalist in Sochi

Recap:

4:30 – Jeffrey Kessler, Attorney Who Is Suing the NCAA

The system of the NCAA benefit everyone except the players themselves. With a vast majortiy of these athletes never making it big, they are used for school revenue and have nothing to show for it. The athlete movement in he NCAA now is similar to the start of free agency in pro sports. He is in favour of a free amrket system where each school can bis for players. The competitive level between schools right now, can’t possibly get worse. An Anti-Trust case does not tell the world how things should be – rather – what is legal or not. “The world is ready to accept the change.”

4:45 – Scott MacArthur, TSN 1050 Blue Jays Reporter

Watched Ricky Romero against the Tigers today and can only say that “it was awful.” Romero had issues yet again with control. Making matters worse, Marcus Stroman was also yanked and threw only 32 pitches and less thab half were strikes. Still unconfirmed but it looks like Brendan Morrow is slated to be the #5 starter. He feels that being #5 will allow him to start the home opener since they start the season on the road.

5:00 – Bob McKenzie, TSN Hockey Insider

A look at the Buffalo Sabres and Ted Nolan. Had Pat LaFontaine stayed with the club it was almost a sure thing that Nolkan would have stayed on. Although supported, Tim Murray will now have to make that decision. Not sure what he’ll decide. The Atlanta franchise was moved incredibly quickly while the Coyotes were saved at every possible turn. That makes it hard to read the Florida Panthers situation and whether or not relocation is a possibility. The NHL still sees a team in Souyth Florida as part of their plan. On the return to Montreal with Patrick Roy, he feels all the bad.

5:15 – Dyshawn Pierre, Dayton Flyers Forward (NCAA) From Whitby Ontario

Paul Bessire, general manager ofpredictionmachine.com speaks about how his site works to predict the outcome of games in all major sports. The predictalator plays every game 50,000 times before a game if played and the likely outcome of a contest includes straight-up, against-the-spread and over/under winners of each game. He discusses his sites rate of successfully predicting over 60 per cent of upsets at NCAA basketball games and discusses the games he thinks where possible upsets could occur. He discusses a 16 seed vs. one seed matchup where he could see a competitive game and believes we will eventually see a No. 16 beat a No. 1.

5:30 – Ken Holland, Red Wings GM and Sr VP

Does not want to make excuses but he has never quite seen injuries like this season. They battled last year as well but this year so many impact players like Zetterberg and Datsyuk were impacted. They hope to play their way in and there is always the outside chance that someone like Zetterberg might be available in the playoffs. His surgey puts his out 8 weeks and the start of the playoffs is at 7 ½ weeks. Weiss suffered a setback and then Helm was pulled out of a game the night before the trade deadline. Morning of deadline he was down 3 centers.

6:00 – Sam Mitchell, Former NBA Coach of the Year

Phil Jackson heads to NYC and it already had had a impact since Carmelo Anthony has already bought in. He says it’s silly that people are questioning his work ethic since he’s at the end of his career. He has won multiple titles and his basketball IQ is unmatched. He – among many – would love a chance to coach for a guy like Phil Jackson. Phil’s coach will absorb all that Phil has to offer, especially the triangle offence. Nobody has worked for the Knicks with this stature than can keep someone like James Dolan from meddling. Mitchell says even Dolan was in awe of Jackson today. The Knicks are a whole new destination for free agents now that Phil Jackson will be the recruiter.

6:15 – Darren Dreger, TSN Hockey Insider

The Leafs seem to play a different and calmer game when Bernier is in goal. The team needs to be held to a higher standard. The Washington game was a huge letdown since they had played so well in California. The future of Alfredsson is – as always – up in the air but his reoccurring back problem will alter his decision.


6:30 – Senator Jacques Demers, Former Canadiens Head Coach

It is a huge night in Montreal for the return of Patrick Roy. He was there when Roy had the number retired and the ovation was lime nothing he has ever seen before. Points out that his 4 Cups were also won with 4 different coaches which is very hard to do. Ray has handled the situation terrifically and this evening will be like a return of a King. The Canadiens have allowed so many good coaches go in the past like Claude Julien and Alain Vigneault. Demers was the last coach that was someone that also lived in the city.

Tomorrow: Jack Armstrong, Dan Shulman, Gurdeep Ahluwalia

He provides his thoughts on a potential Pittsburgh-Boston matchup and believes the Penguins will be in tough in a series against the Bruins and suggests the Bruins are head and shoulders above the rest of the Eastern Conference.

5:15 – Scott MacArthur, TSN 1050 Blue Jays Reporter

Scott MacArthur speaks about the Toronto Blue Jays’ decision to use Brandon Morrow as the number five starter in their rotation and provides his thoughts on how the Jays’ rotation could play out. He believes there are a lot of question marks surrounding the club’s pitching and suggests the team will have to hope for two pitchers to emerge out of Ricky Romero, Esmil Rogers, Drew Hutchison, and Todd Redmond, and J.A Happ. He discusses why the team didn’t trade Jeff Samardzija.

5:30 – Joffrey Lupul, Toronto Maple Leafs

Joffrey Lupul provides his thoughts on the Leafs successful California trip where they won two out of three games and describes the style of play of all three teams as a heavy-physical brand of hockey.

6:15 - Darren Dreger, TSN Hockey Insider

Darren Dreger provides an update on Kris Letang and believes there is a strong possibility that the defenseman could return to the Penguins lineup this season after suffering a stroke. He talks about the idea of a coaches challenge and suggests Matt Cooke’s head shot on Marc Savard was the primary reason for the NHL altering their rules on hits to the head, but believes general managers want to keep the element of human error in the game. He discusses Martin St. Louis’ slow start with the New York Rangers and suggests the veteran may be placing added pressure on himself.

6:30 – Rowan Barrett, Canada Basketball Assistant GM
