Thank you to our producer DJ Stacey Hope for mixing the great intro and outro beats.
Segment 1: We break down the Leafs and Predators transaction, detailing the pieces going and coming each way. Highlights include the return and development for the Leafs, the potential trade targets heading towards the March trade deadline and the impact Kyle Dubas as well as Mark Hunter will have on the upcoming draft for the team.
Segment 2: Going through the NBA trade deadline, we give you our picks on winners and losers, shaping the landscape of the league after the deals made. Specific attention goes to Goran Dragic and Reggie Jackson, altering the bottom of the Eastern playoff landscape. We also hand our best wishes to Chris Bosh on a speedy recovery.
Segment 3: Breaking down the Raptors month, we go over what went wrong in Houston and New Orleans, looking at the upcoming schedule in the team’s difficult February. The Raptors face stiff challenges in Dallas and against Golden State, before a softer run to close out the schedule.
Segment 4: The NFL draft combine is debated and discusses, we go into the top quarterback picks for the upcoming draft, along with the impressive combine performance from Byron Jones. We expand into the combine becoming more of a largely covered event by the NFL network, and the exposure it gives to younger athletes who may not have had a similar platform in years past.
Segment 5: We close the show previewing some Champions League matchups, and have a little fun teeing up next week to close it all out.
SEE YOU NEXT WEEK!
