The HNIC experts discussed what it will take to get the NHL to say yes to the Olympics. If you don't watch the full video, at least catch the short interview with Rene Fasel in the early part of the segment.

Plus the group discussed the Tim Thomas trade and mentioned if the league did a favor for Jeremy Jacobs?
Don Cherry and Ron MacLean discussed the the makeup of the Leafs and some of their fans, the fighting code in regards to the Rinaldo/Crombeen fight and a few other topics.
