Poke the Bear


Poke the bear episode 39 a Matt beleskey episode ice in honor of Matt beleskey. I'm Evan Marriott house key here with Connor and Boston Sports channel Connor how we doing? I'm doing very well. How you doing? I'm good. I got a haircut. I'm all you know, fresh up people watching on YouTube. You'll see that little bit of a deferral the same thing. I always get but we'll fan of Welcome in the spring of the you know, the headlights the hot air even though Friday Snow Yeah, that's not ideal. That's not good for like the aerodynamic kind of you know, and it's like nice page seventy eighty degrees out a little bit of wind wind in your face not when it's snowing that's not ideal. So no. No, but anyways Bruins the Bruins Lynch the new acquisition Phones are on the team and they all played Tuesday night against Buffalo. Now we hear you and I we we we don't ever really over reacts doing, you know, I never overreact never never get directions on our thing, but we're going to do some way too early look-ins judging these guys off one game. So we're going to judge all three of them off of one game which is near everyone's going to be doing this so might as well join in on that kind of fun. But so we'll go guy by guy in in how we thought they looked in their first look against the Sabres start with honors Bjork off, of course. Yeah, do do What's called the OT goal, which would be like the most Bruins development ever is honest work finally breaks through in the school board and it's against the Bruins and overtime. I just loved how the first goal was Bjork to Miller and that was a former Bruins just sticking to their own team and the most like that. I think that only happens to the Bruins if it definitely doesn't happen everywhere else too, but like it only happens to the bridge. Where you know it's a thing with the franchise where like that having some of the teams like oh, what a coincidence for the Brewing. It's like that's about right and of course that's going to freaking happen like, you know, and we said this month from weeks up to the deadline. You knew wherever Jake debrusk went if he was to get traded. He would be a thirty goal scorer. No public school like you gos Nashville that guy's lighting up place up. So yeah, no surprise or not. But I hope your scores are million goals with Buffalo. I hope he does fantastic. I really do like we said we need to change of scenery. Let's start with Taylor Hall cuz that is obviously the Hot Topic number 71 that looks like I'm getting Balkan 2005 Marc Savard, I think oh 506 Marc Savard had yeah, he had 7105 06 was know Saddam was 06077. Yeah, it was the the yeah, that was the first year for him even chart together. Yes, cuz oh 506 was Thornton and then he leave off. The the classic David Lewis era the day flew South one year. Let's no Taylor Hall against the Sabres had a very good night. He had three shots two of them were in overtime should add an assist on that Craig Smith goal, by the way in a group chat I have with some people I do work with for Bruins clns. They said let's do some predictions for Taylor home. I said Taylor how he's going to assist on a Craig Smith goal and I was I was pretty much right. I mean, I was pretty right there. But what did you think of Taylor Hall? Yeah, I think if you're a few of the problems you have to be encouraged as what you saw home. It's kind of interesting after the game. He saw a few like National people kind of reactive like I guess I forget who was if someone up in Canada that was like, well you saw from a game the Bruins have the works out for them with Kayla Hall like guys not confident really going to build his confidence back up which I mean he's he's admitted that but he needs to build his game back up, but I don't know how he saw anything from it off. They give you like a red flag of like all this guy's really fighting the puck. I mean, it's his first game with the new team hasn't played in ten days. People forget about the guy was literally was on the it was held out of games wage earning a new system. So, you know, I don't know people are expecting him to to score a hat-trick in his first game, but you know, I think he started off a little slow. I think he had to kind of adjust the new life mate said like kind of a bad turn over that kind of that spin around pass it went to a sabre instead of a brewing so like yes a little tentative at at this. But I think it's a game went on he got more comfortable. I think where you really kind of noticed him especially was transition wise very very kind of assertive and smooth to the neutral zone. Got a lot of an easy. Everybody was able to manufacture a lot of pretty clean Zone entries, which is usually been an issue for this team terms of kind of getting that momentum back. So I think especially moving phone number Against maybe more physical teams like the Islanders or the capitals where they really trying to, you know, have you in your Zone? Haven't got like Hall who can't support a guy like McAvoy or a Grizzly look and get the puck-moving. I think it'd be a big a big difference maker in terms of helping out that group. So I think if you're the Bruins as the the first step I think of to be encouraged it wasn't, you know, I don't get the month
