Recap:

Pierre McGuire – NHL on NBC

Pierre says the Leafs problem is the lack of depth on defense and down the middle. Pierre says the Leafs giving up so many shots night after night has come back to haunt them this season. Pierre says when Tyler Bozak and David Bolland are out of the Leafs lineup it is tough for the Leafs. Pierre says because he is not in the room he can’t say if lack of leadership is hurting the Leafs. Pierre says the Leafs have talked enough and now they need to play. Pierre says guys like Colton Orr and Fraser McLaren are not helping the Leafs playing 4 minutes a night. Pierre talked about John-Michael Liles at the Winter Classic after he got traded. Liles was a true professional after he was traded. Pierre says the busiest people in hockey today will be Tim Murray, Brian Burke, and Dave Nonis because the teams are in free falls right now.

Luke Wileman – TSN Soccer Voice

Luke talked about the official announcement that Jermain Defoe will be property of Toronto FC on February 28th from Tottenham Hotspur. Luke says Toronto FC has instant credibility this week over a 48 hour period with 2 star players. Luke says Defoe still has lots of game left in him and he will be one of the top 3 or 4 players in the league goal scoring. Luke says he does not think FC fans will be ‘Blue Jayed’ because the talent they will turn FC an instant contender and Tim Lieweke wants to make this a championship team.

Leafs Breakfast w/Darren Dreger

Darren says the Leafs coaching staff have a couple of options to consider. You either sit back and be patient and supportive or disciplining key players. Instead of making Jake Gardiner or Paul Ranger a healthy scratch you might sit someone from the leadership core upstairs. Darren does not feel the Leafs have not tuned out Randy Carlyle yet. Darren says it seems it was 6-on-3 for the Hurricanes because there was no effort by the Leafs. Darren feels Tim Gleason is not Bobby Orr he has a skill set of being a physical defenseman. Darren says Nazem Kadri is too obvious to sit out a game but Cody Franson might be a target.

Alex Marvez – Fox Sports One NFL Reporter

Alex says he likes the Chargers will cover and may win because the Broncos offensive line is banged up. Alex like the Colts over the Patriots because they finish strong and the Patriots offense is not a good this year. Alex likes the 49ers because they are battle tested and having Michael Crabtree back is huge for the team. Alex Marvez likes Derrick Brooks to make the Hall of Fame and Michael Strahan should get in. Morten Andersen will be the longest shot to win. Alex likes Redskins new head coach Jay Gruden because he structures his gameplan to his players. Gruden and GM Bruce Allen have a connection. Alex thinks Johnny Manziel will be great in New Orleans and learn from Drew Brees and could take over.

Chris Schultz – TSN Football Analyst

Chris talks about how good Russell Wilson is and his development as a NFL quarterback and he likes Seattle to beat the Saints. Chris likes the Patriots to be the Colts because they will control the clock Bill Belichek will have a gameplan for the Colts best offensive weapons. Chris likes the 49ers because they have played each other already and they have film to come up with a plan to beat the Panthers. Chris likes the Chargers to keep it close but the Broncos should win. Wes Welker will be key for the Broncos.

Jeff O’Neill – TSN Leafs Analyst

Jeff says the Leafs loss to the Hurricanes is ‘garbage’. Jeff wonders if there is a disconnect Carlyle and the players over lack of work ethic. Jeff says they are two weeks away from a lottery pick if they do not pick up their game. Jeff says either there is a leadership issue or they hate Randy Carlyle right now. Jeff says Tim Gleason and John-Michael Liles trade should be good for both players. Jeff says the John-Michael Liles situation may have been a management issue because they buried vets like Liles and didn’t get a fair shot. Jeff says Carlyle should take out Phil Kessel of the lineup for his lack for effort.

Recap:

Pierre McGuire – NHL on NBC

Pierre talked about Martin St. Louis snub from Team Canada. Pierre feels St. Louis is all about team and the Yzerman/St. Louis relationship will be a bit strained but it will heal. Pierre says if he could take one player off Team Canada he would sub St. Louis for Rick Nash. Pierre have talked about Patrick Marleau has earned his place with Team Canada because of his size, speed, and he deserves to be on the team based on his play. Pierre feels the Leafs have an inconsistent game and teams are not afraid of them. Pierre feels they need a better attack and energy to their game.

Leafs Breakfast w/Darren Dreger

Darren talks about the Leafs loss to the Islanders. Darren talked about the Leafs lack of identity right now with the team. Darren feels it was a statement game and the Leafs should have beaten a team that was ripe for the picking and they underperformed. Darren says Bernier was not sharp on 3 of the 4 goals and wished Bernier owned up to the loss more then he did postgame. Darren says the Leafs are a fragile group right now but Carlyle did credit Kadri for his effort. Darren said Steve Yzerman had a very experienced group around him and he got enough information to cover every aspect to select Team Canada yesterday.

Scott Ferguson – MLB Analyst

Scott says it is time for Major League Baseball make a decision of steroid users being left off the ballot in the near future because the voting is a farce. Fergy would put Maddux, Glavine, Thomas, and Craig Biggio. Fergy says Jack Morris should get into the Hall of Fame and was the best pitcher of the eighties but likely won’t get in. Scott says Pete Rose is a Hall of Famer but will never get in.

Alex Marvez – Fox Sports One

Alex is heading to Denver to see the Chargers/Broncos. Alex thinks the Chargers will be a tough matchup for the Broncos. Alex says the Chargers have a swagger and thriving off the us against the world mentality. Alex says the Saints can keep their game against the Seahawks close but will lose. The Saints were able to run the ball against the Eagles but it will be all about the passing game against a tough defense. Alex is curious how Cam Newton handles his first playoff game against the Niners despite playing in big college games…minor vs major leagues.

Jim Ralph – Leafs Colour Analyst

Jim cracked some jokes about Team Canada’s long winded press conference. Jim thinks we could see Canada using 2 goaltenders during the Olympics just like Vancouver. Jim gives Yzerman credit for calling players personally explaining why players did or did not make it. Jim says the Leafs can only win one way if the goaltending is great and their first line scores. Leafs cannot win different ways which is an issue. The Leafs of poor defensive play is hurting Leafs goaltenders. Jim liked Tim Gleason’s debut for the Leafs because you didn’t notice him making any bad mistakes.

Leafs Breakfast w/Darren Dreger

Darren talked about the Leafs loss and he said those types of games happen during the course of a long season but if they continue to lose in that type of fashion then fans should be concerned. Darren talked about Jonathan Bernier bouncing back but Reimer will be ready to take back the net. Darren is not sure why Nazem Kadri has struggled offensively this season but it is time for him to get rid of his ‘demons’ and step up his game. Darren had no problem with Tim Gleason not playing Saturday because Randy Carlyle rewarded Paul Ranger for his performance at the Winter Classic and it gave Gleason more time to adjust to.

Chris Schultz – TSN Football Analyst

Chris talked about Andy Dalton’s tough game against the Chargers and it will be interesting if he will regress after single game bad performances. Chris wonders what the future of Marvin Lewis in Cincy after another playoff loss. Chris gives the Chargers credit and feels they have a great chance in Denver because they were hot at the right time and Mike McCoy use to be the Broncos offensive coordinator and knows the players well. Chris loved the Saints approach in Philly where they played well defensively. Chris was impressed with Colin Kaepernick and how he handled the cold in Green Bay. Chris said Andrew Luck is no worried about failure and has shown nothing but great composure and that’s why he has so many comeback victories.

Matt Devlin – Raptors TV Voice

Matt talks about the Raptors 10-4 record since the Rudy Guy trade. Dwane Casey has stuck with a tight rotation of guys. Matt said last night’s game had a playoff tone to it and said the Heat took the game very seriously against Toronto. Demar DeRozan or Kyle Lowry could be All-Star selections if they continue to play they have recently. Matt says the trade talk surrounding Kyle Lowry will likely continue right through the NBA Trade Deadline.

Aaron Ward – NHL on TSN

Aaron talked about what an amazing experience it was to play in the outdoor alumni game in Detroit. Aaron talked about the behind the scenes fun the players had and who was in shape and who wasn’t. Aaron talked about Tim Gleason’s game and fell out of favour with Kirk Muller. Aaron says Gleason will be a guy Carlyle will lean on. He has bite and grit in his game. Aaron says Gleason will be a strong defensive presence for the Leafs.
