    Hockey Hall of Famer Börje Salming received an emotional ovation at the Toronto Maple Leafs game on Saturday, as the Leafs legend battles ALS. Salming's impact as one of the first Swedish-born NHL players paved the way for his fellow countrymen to have their moment as well.

If a struggling Blues team can use this as a springboard to save their season, and decisions ahead for GM Doug Armstrong if they don't. Jake Muzzin's - perhaps permanent - absence causes concern for the player's well-being, and also for an already questionable Toronto Maple Leafs blue-line. Plus, could changes be coming as soon as this week for the Vancouver Canucks?? According to Dregs, Bruce Boudreau's position behind the Canucks bench could be vacant any day now. Betano's Kris Abbott was absent as he's galavanting in Greece; he'll be saying ‘Opa!' when he hears the guys praise his NHL bets. However, it was another team ‘L' on NFL picks as Aaron Rodgers heard the pod picked the Cowboys, and promptly got his groove back. Stanley Cup odds are discussed, rough starts for the St. Louis Blues and Pittsburgh Penguins have the guys eyeing if those teams rebounding could result in an improbable cup run.    Ask R+D continues the Swedish trend this week as a listener from Jämtland asks about ‘decriminalizing' the offside rule, and sparks another idea of a ‘grey area' for the coach's challenge.

Ryan Reynolds and the hype surrounding his interest in buying the Ottawa Senators.  The Boston Bruins signing, and subsequent un-signing, of Malcolm Miller has been a mess from start-to-finish: NHLPA ramifications, lack of foresight for the victim, and the onus of responsibility needed from Miller's parents are discussed.

The St. Louis Blues are now on a 7-game slide, the guys ponder if there's a disconnect between the team and coaches, and talk star players needing to step into their roles. Western Canadian teams are all taking some L's recently. Edmonton Oilers' penalty killing, and Calgary Flames' growing pains are amongst reasons for concern in those markets. However, the Vancouver Canucks issues seem to be reaching a boiling point. Canucks President, Jim Rutherford's thinly veiled comments at Head Coach Bruce Boudreau, along with captain Bo Horvat's pending UFA status, and a lacklustre record; might just spell the end for this core. The guys examine whether or not a rebuild could be coming on the Westcoast. Kris Abbott has his voice back and is using it to shed light on the “1” blemish on Ray's 5-1 NFL picks record. He recounts a rollercoaster of emotion as he came oh-so-close to hitting his first-half Bills/Jets bet.
