Darren Dreger calls in
The TSN reporter who broke the news of Shea Weber signing an offer sheet with the Flyers called in and talked about it with Mike and Todd. The biggest revelation from Dreger: "Flyers GM Paul Holmgren and Predators GM David Poile spent all day on the phone yesterday trying to get a trade done, and Holmgren had enough." Does Dreger think the Flyers are instant Stanley Cup contenders with the acquisition of Weber? Find out below:
Our resident injury expert Joe DeRosa called in and updated us some injuries including Reds 1B Joey Votto and Jayson Werth. Joe DeRosa is a Physical Therapist at Linwood Physical Therapy.
Shea Weber's agent Jarrett Bousquet
The agent for Predators D Shea Weber called in and really gave us the details of the offer sheet his client signed with the Philadelphia Flyers. Bousquet believes that "Nashville can probably match us, but does it really make sense for them if there may not be hockey next year?" Listen to Jarrett Bousquet talk with Mike and Todd about Shea Weber's desire to play in Philadelphia:
John Morosi talks Phillies/Hamels
FOX Sports MLB Reporter John Morosi called in and gave us the latest regarding Cole Hamels and a possible contract extension. The Phillies are currently at 6 years as other outlets have reported, but Morosi wonders if it's still in Hamels best interest to take the offer without testing free agent waters after the season is completed.
