"Close. Welcome back our number two instigators. W gr 5 50 MSG, um, offseason conversations training camp Starting. I don't even know if a training camp schedules actually said, is it? I'm assuming it's somewhere in the The 20th is a Monday. So somewhere in that week, I would imagine normal time would be Late like September 16 17 18 area. Yeah, well, the first preseason game is under 28. But Floyd Columbus, So backtrack dad a week. Usually you have about a week of skating before the first preseason, so I would think it would start around the 21st 20 21st. Okay? When you got when that's when you say when you consider a week before a preseason game, the norm like maybe five, Haven't they? Three or four days like I always thought like they they would open camp on a Thursday they were playing Saturday. They used to be. There used to be some of that before, but Mhm. I I personally don't like it like you got two days on the ice. And then Austin, you play preseason game. I love that. I loved it party. I can. I bet for goalies, they would suck getting up to speed and and and angles and stuff and normal. I can, but it also is different because you guys when we skated in the summer, we dropped the pocket center ice and we played a game of shinny right now. The guys that are skinning in the summer. They're actually doing skills development, goalie training, uh, actual practices and when they get to camp They don't need a week a camp to be ready to play a game. They're already in game shape somewhat when we played. It wasn't like that. So maybe now, I would say yeah, two days and let's go. Um, I can still remember Alex Kovalev. When he played for the Montreal Canadians with me. Remember, he remember the white skates he used to have? Yeah, He was the only guy in the league that had these skates. You knew it was his signature. It was him like these white skates and the stick was his signature to and his stick was insanely short, like and curl like at the bottom. It was rockers. Um I remember after one of our years, we we, you know, didn't make the playoffs or or lost out in the playoffs. And when he had left He left his all his equipment still hanging in his stop. Okay. I thought that was kind of a little weird because I was I was one of the last guys to leave Montreal after the season. It was like, you know, I stayed there for probably a week. Two weeks and then I I went in to grab all my stuff. To take it back to my my hometown for the summer to be able to skate there. And when I went there Everybody's equipment was gone. Except for Alex Kovalev's still hanging in his stall. So I was thinking to myself. Well, you know, maybe Kobe is sticking around Montreal a little bit longer, Beautiful in the summer time, you know all this kind of stuff. When I came back to Montreal. Every year. I was always the first guy back in Montreal every single year I usually went back. The first week of August, and we didn't start training camp until what the the first of September Marty third of September around there back in the day. But I was little bit later like it was like like the nice seven because there were reasons why I'm saying that is because our first day, uh, never have kept training Labor Day. No. But our first day of training camp in 2000, and one was 9 11. You know, So it usually was about that the eight at 9/10 11th of September, So I was there a solid month before all my seasons. Because there wasn't there was not. Um there was nobody in my hometown that that I could skate with that could push me and that I could practice with and do the whole shooting match, So I left. My hometown early every year by a month so I could come back and skate with this huge group of players in Montreal. All these years I came back. Alex Cobb. Always stuff still installed hasn't hasn't from from the day that he left. I'm thinking of myself. You must have another another set of stuff at his at his house. He shows up to camp that year. I looked at Cov and I was just curious. I say go stuff still hanging your stall. They haven't skated all summer he goes. Yeah, This could be my first time. It's our first our first day of training camp. You think it's funny? I'm like, I think it's awesome. Actually keep going. I'm like, How was he? Unbelievable, huh? Yeah, absolutely Unbelievable. Like he stepped on the ice, and he looked a little. He looked a little slow. Um, but he was never a speedster. He was all about Park control. He was his skill set. I'm gonna go. I'll take his skill set. And put them up against any player in the last 25 years. Go watch the warrior videos on YouTube there and have you ever seen him? With his tricks and stuff is stick handling what he could do One hand shot. Oh, you gotta understand. Snapshot Top corner when I watched this, Okay. I watched this For years, playing with them because we would finish practice. And what he loved more than anything is after the practice was done, and all the boys are in the circle together. Okay at the middle in the middle of the ice stretching everybody did it after every single practice. What does he do, Marty? What he did PT. He does his drills, pucks. He gets three pucks is sitting on one knee. At the far end of that big circle in the middle of the ice, where you face off dot and he feathers passes. This is literally three quarters of the ice. In the air, and he's trying to land it on top of the net. Now here's the thing I would ask you or any other NHL player. You know, does that does that that sound hard. And first of all, you know, a lot of us would be able to risk that in the air from your knee from your I want to hear the first guy to say. Oh, yeah, that's not that hard to even get it. It is hard, but, um, you'd be able to get it up. Yeah, you could do it. You know, But here's the thing. I am not kidding. When I say this. I watched this for years, and he did it after every single practice and I watched him land multiple. Yeah, on the top of the net, and I'm like, if you if You really have to see it on a regular basis to believe that His percentage of of hitting and landing them on the top of that was was not normal, like this was like, unheard of. We're talking like 50%. Maybe I wouldn't say 50, but like he was a good 20% landing on top of the net. I'm not kidding. You five parks. He was landing one on top of the net. He was missing 80% of them. That's not as good Course. Yeah, right. I mean, but you have to understand that other 80% that he was not landing on top of the net. They were. They were right there. Oh, yeah, Like bouncing off. You know the net and his skill set. He loved to play one on one. He liked to get, um two other guys so three in total, and a lot of the times it was with soccer. Koval and Saku Koivu's stick handling and length and and dangle abilities in small areas was Totally insane. And I remember being I remember having some fun doing this and then just completely lost interest because it was so embarrassing. I can never touch the park. I was just like they're like, Hey, ribs come on, and, you know And I realized that I was just like a like a human decoy. That's how good they were. It was so insane. Their abilities to handle the puck. And and the movements of their of all their their the stick and everything it was. It was so unbelievable but anyway Alex Kovalev. Well, that's not what we're really talking about. We weren't talking about Kobo have been talking. Remember, we started that we're talking about training camp opening and guys not skating and how much different it was. But anyway, instigators we talk about whatever we want here. W gr 5 50 MSG It's summertime. So you know what we do in the summertime? We talk about Scott Wheeler's redraft in the 2018 draft, and, uh, you know, there's There's a thought that was the draft. The Dalian went number one and In this draft. He.
