"The other things. So we always get bloodthirsty as a fan base, right? When teams continue to run into that brick wall. So yeah, of course it's fair to ask the question, could Kyle dubas be in jeopardy? Yes. On record, no doubt he knows that. He would expect that. But I would think that there's enough evidence to also present a counter argument why he shouldn't be in trouble if they fail again this year. Well, I'm you'll correct me on this. Brendan Shanahan signed an extension, correct? Yeah. Yes, he did. What length I'm not sure, but I believe he did. So, shanny hire and dubas have been a team and a vision. Yeah. I don't see it. I don't see that dubas if they lose in the first round would be let go. Because of the extension. And this extension also is an extension of Brendan Shanahan's vision. Now, to me, the toughest part they have to walk around, like those are all great signings, cash abundant camp. Campbell at 1.65, all great. The vision to me got bumped off track when they've got so much money loaded in the four forwards. Like that to me and the $11 million that goes to John Tavares is such a huge bolt in the middle of their lineup. It is, yeah. You know, I mean, but that's part of their vision. And so they've got to work around it. And so far, it's not work. It's not even come close to work. They haven't got out of the first round. No. So that means you could have John Tavares or not have John Tavares. And you still lose in the first round. Yeah. And look, I don't think I don't think the answer to the question, no. For me, the answer is no. Yeah, we could be flat out wrong..

"This is why I love what he said. Because we are paying tortorella to make headlines and to give takes. And he's on ESPN and he's saying things that get us talking and get the league talking, get the world talking. He's a complete moron for what he said and he's completely wrong, but I don't want any situation where we ask for takes and comments and opinions on the league and then guys give them and everyone screams and yells how stupid he is, right? So I did send him an anvil and envelope with anthrax. So heads up in your mailbox ever talk about Macbeth like that again. But he's giving a take that he truly believes is correct. And here's the thing, who am I to say anything? Because John toro has a Stanley Cup. He knocked off the Tampa Bay lightning in Columbus a few years back. He's done some special things in the game. And he knows what it takes to win in the playoffs. But if you think that Connor McDavid has to change his game, you're the craziest son of a bitch that's ever walked the planet because this guy, like I've said before, is the greatest hockey player of all time. You want him to change his game? What are you talking about? Do you know people say Steve eisenman changed his game and they won standing up? Steve eisenman had Sergei fedorov Nick Litt strom Larry Murphy, all the Russians, Constantine off Larry on off, Brendan Shanahan. Dude, Connor McDavid is an absolute genius on the ice. We need every other player to try to do anything remotely close to what Connor McDavid does. We don't need Conor McDavid doing what some grinder does. Now, yes, in the playoffs, is it harder to score? 100%. But why would he change his game? Okay, in the end, does he need to do a little bit more defensively? I guess you could ask that of anyone, right? Of anyone. Like, yeah, you gotta be a little bit more responsibly defensively. Dude, you have the whole game. You create chances every time you're on the ice. You're the fastest skater with the puck. The game's ever seen. Nothing about Connor McDavid's game is causing the oilers to not win the Stanley Cup. There's nothing does nothing to do with him. And the argument is, wait, you don't know shit. You were a plug, you were brutal. You went to the cup finals. You sat on the bench pretty much the whole time. Towards his Stanley Cup champion, he knows what it takes. You want to quote towards me saying when he's selling the world on ESPN for McDavid to shut up, what would he be saying if he was coaching the oilers? Holy shit, call a fuck about the honor. He's got fucking tripped in hot dog game. So enough with the shut up Connor. Dude, I have been. I watch every oilers game, as you know. If you follow me on Twitter, there's three penalties a game on, they don't call. And so if he was head coach, he'd be discussed. So you can say shut up. I don't even think he winds that much. If you look at Crosby's beginning of his career, he wind more than McDavid has. I just don't. Social media wasn't as big. Everything wasn't going as viral and happening fast. Now, I agree with you a 100%. He has nowhere near the personnel. This is the first. Is this the first year where they have a legitimate contender? And they still haven't just some people's opinion having addressed goaltending, right? Well, 5 on 5 they're struggling, but they are a contender this year. They are no question. 100% contender for the first time I would say since he's been an oiler. So now we can start judging. Now, based on the penalty aspect, there's been a big conversation online because you know when playoff starts all of a sudden they start calling the game a little bit looser. And we all know that and that's a fact, right? You get away with a little bit more cross checks to hear cross checks are there. So everybody found it weird how many he would normally draw and then the drop off when playoff came. I don't think he drew one penalty during his 8 playoff games. Sorry, did they get swept by Winnipeg? They got swept. In the first round, right? Yep. So I don't think they called one penalty there and then in the games leading up to playoffs. And even to start the season a little bit. Now even as a fan you're starting to notice it. So everyone's noticing it. Right. So that's what makes me wonder. Maybe he is complaining that much and refs are so sick of it and it's like, you know, maybe it's behind the scene under his breath where like refs are noticeably not calling penalties on them. And maybe there's a whole sense of like, he's so good, we can't, we can't help him out even more. You know what I mean? Do you think this is towards looking into all those comments about that? Or he's like, man, come play off time. It's just harder. It's a little bit tougher out there. If he's gonna keep complaining and whining and they're gonna keep complaining and wine, it's not gonna help him in the long run. So he's saying kind of shut up and just like learn how to play through it. That's his. That's his opinion on it. Tort saying shut up, the way he said it so funny because the guy just knows how to like piss people off and he's he's so truly like, what's the word when you he's just so authentic torque? He doesn't give a fuck what one person thinks..

"And that's a good there and they have all world goaltender. But that was a big part of our less in having jacques robinson these guys just you look at them and they they just yet such respect for them but i was a real good. I'm not gonna say speech but a couple of days before jock made sure we understood. We could beat them already. What was the question you were going to have for about. Scott steve. Yeah he came over. How long shanahan signed. The free agent deals saint louis. And you guys would just awarded scott stevens after that. What was that all about. I know ameral all right. I mean obviously and they'd offer to pretty damn good players. Rod bryn mawr incurs. joseph goaltender. I believe and i don't know the business aspect back then we're just players but obviously it was tampering. Saint louis had slyly. Offered brendan shanahan. This outrageous four year contract was he restricted. Some i don't i figured dachshund offer sheet kinda before the author. She yes exactly how they're going to gain buddy was against the league rules. Whatever that was so it goes to arbitration court. And they're offering joseph and bryn mawr. Kim you have pretty awesome players. Shanahan was going to be a player. Second overall pick but he hadn't quite a stab somebody who's getting there. You could see he was going to be an elite player scored thirty goals power forward tough as nails and lamelo shoot. Shot for the stars says. No we want scott stevens somehow. Some way the saint louis or the arbitrator ordered a scott stiegler scottish lou. Lou shot for the fence. I think he would have been pretty content. Curtis joseph and rodman at the time. Yeah wait at that. Don't call me. But i'm almost positive. That was the the deal. Initially that they were trying to give us some great players in their own right obviously right so we got stevens the rest history now. We had you know that big tough defense went on the back end. You know. Scott was drafted by your. He was fifth overall. I believe in my year in plot against him to washington. Couldn't stand him either. But i i always wanted to be. I always use that term. The poor man scott stevens. I'm going to be the poor. Man's scott stevens not as good offensively but that tough nasty big hitter But just that was. I'd be happy with that but when we got him i was certainly going kappa. This guys aren't team now like now. We're starting to become formidable. Now we got scott stevens. Now we've got a real good nucleus the guys up front and then we get to draft scott. Tomorrow still underrated me the best most effortless skater i've ever seen in the game has ever seen. I love that kid. He's just awesome. He was nineteen years when he was nineteen years old. And i was thirty and still a little bit of a wild man throughout my career and when i grow up i wanna be scott on word of a lie. We're still real close. Such respect from just because the way he cared himself in the way handle is life and on and off the ice and and as far as a player. I still think he doesn't get enough. I still don't think. I know he's also under the radar. He's quite sacrificing. He's a quiet guy. But just so well-thought-out such an intelligent guy and but had that burning desire to win it just the game looked easy to him. So sometimes look trying. I never seen a guy want to win like tomorrow. He just did it in a different study. Play with them anaheim minutes and you'd have one beat sweater asked jessica but he also competitor he. He would get angry. Look no further than he got a ten game such. I never had a ten games from china. Rattus mentioned national need crack. Peter well over the head with his stick at ten games for no he had enough enough. He kept getting started. Alfredsson snap lamey. He had that little foolish. I'm gonna need what he club guys. Now schalke over the head with got ten games for it needs had that competitive spirit as you. You don't win four cups. You don't win everywhere you go. And wherever he goes they happened to yes because he's highly skilled but he has that that heart that yes that will and character. I love them. We were like oh we room together at times. We were like oscar and felix. But but he's a guy he's one of the guys you know you not many guys you because everybody has their own lives and you move on you. Try to stay in touch. Always have special bond five guys in on those devils teams won all three cups together. Don't matter if you don't see each other for ten years it's like you never left. Who are the five that when when all a stevens broder myself It's sergei brilliant. Tonight named five snyder. Stevens me broder waylon. yeah sometimes. People sergei brilliant and now the guy doesn't there's always the unsung heroes. He was kind of the swiss army knife. Could do it all. Yeah he was one of those guys you had to have to win. And he was the other guy had won all three so anytime i see sergey still working. We call syria brilliant. He works organizations. It's like he had that special bond. We want three times together. Feel you don't have to say it means something. And and but when we got steve and then we got mr and then we got brodeur. I'm like oh man. Now we got that all world goaltender even though you just thought even though he had an established soviet you saw the second year. Yeah this broader kids are going to be pretty good because he had a quiet confidence about them that you had to have the net and and the rest is history one those three times and we always had a chance. You're not gonna win every year but we knew we had the and core and you don't they don't stay together that long we had five guys were together. Ten years pretty. Well just doesn't happen too often you'll end and three defensemen and a goaltender. So the chemistry you're able to end the bond and just on and off. The ice becomes an important factor of why were so consistent defensively and in arizona and i made a mardi was like a third defenseman. I could peel off. Not getting my face run into the boards. I knew the pass would be right on my stick better than any defense or the past that i could give you know so it just all those elements helped so much along the way that Pretty amazing app from a team. That couldn't win twenty games to still being around because usually get traded when you become good and lou had many reasons off the ice to trade me many times. But that's what. I love the boat alarm. You know. This is unreal. We don't wanna keep you all day though but we need to hear a couple of loose stories that you've probably never forgot..

"You a little parental note down. So I was always doing something. I was always going somewhere and my parents were just rock stars for that. You, you never really think about how much they sacrificed and give to you until you're older. And now you're Thirty. And you're like, I don't think I could, I could take care of a child right now. So love you, Mom and Dad so much. It sounds like they were both very inspirational to you both in the past and probe. And it's speaking of people that were inspirational in your life. What sports did you enjoy watching as a kid? Obviously whether it be in on T or in person? I know that you enjoyed watching hockey which we will get too short. We so what sports did you enjoy? Watching and are there any athletes in particular that you lived up to as a child both male and female? Of course. Yeah, I watched a lot of track and field. I thought Sonia richards-ross was awesome. I ran track in addition to playing ice hockey. So I did the 400 the 200, the four, by the four, by one. I thought I was really fast to get attributed to my speed on the ice and I really obviously, like Serena Williams and Venus Williams. I thought they were just Trailblazers and a predominantly white sport, which I felt, I could relate to playing ice hockey and my dad would always force me to watch the NHL, especially playoffs my favorite team or the Detroit Red Wings. I love Steve. Yzerman I love song. Call. I wanted to have a slapshot just like him and break like a million sticks in a game. I love Brendan Shanahan like those are my guys and they were so good, so it helped that I was favoring a winning team. I, I was a kid that just really loved to play more so than watch if you know what I mean. That sounds like you have been immersed in the sport of ice hockey from a very young age. We're going to be talking about that very soon. I find it very interesting though that you got into track and field and that kind of you said attributed maybe to your speed a little bit. So can we talk about that a little bit more? Did you do that? Competitively I wasn't more for fun. Yeah, it was more of a thing where my mom did the high jump. And I think she might still have the not the Collegiate, but the High School record in Cleveland Heights for it. Probably not but she used to. She would brag to me about it and I just wanted to try it. I thought it was cool and long. Jump was also my thought jumping in a huge box of sand seemed Really cool and I just like to compete. I love being in a lane next to someone at their very best against you at your very best was kind of what drove me to run a Check..

"No, not at all. I knew that was coming. They always do that. You know, I get it. They don't want people people coming out and saying that You know, in public trying to get one of their one of their people fired and then that type of thing so Matter fact the amount didn't even surprise me either. I mean, so I absolutely knew that and players would be fine more, but it's negotiated in the collective bargaining agreement like $5000 was was the you know they couldn't find Wilson a million dollars. Or half a salary or anything like that. I mean, the punishment finds are ridiculous, ridiculously low for what is allowed as far as how how much a player can be fine. But that is all collective. But bargaining for by the players I did. I did see a very strong opinion from you about the other news about discipline for the Rangers, and that was Bush. Nah, Bitch. Getting one game for that high. Stick on, man tha last night. Um and you, you well, you laid out what? What were your thoughts on on that? Exactly? It's just got nothing more gutless decisions by the NHL. I mean, I don't care what one doesn't lead to the other. It's like well, the Rangers had to take care of themselves because the NHL din step in that matters. Not at all as far as this particular incident goes. And Matthew was trying to handle it The way you're supposed to handle the incident he already got slashed by Butch Novich. And he was trying to get into a fight and he was doing it the way most guys do it. He's tapping him on the back saying Okay, let's go. He we want me. I'm here. Let's go. Hey, doesn't jump him. He doesn't sucker. Punch him. He doesn't do anything. Which now average just turns his back. Samantha gives up starts get back in the play. Here comes the whistle. They face each other and Matt that was going to go over and hey, do you want to go challenge him again, and he gets cross checked in the face. And and Bush in average runs after he does that. So first of all, it's a gutless play to do that and then run and second of all the NHL. How do you How do you do You just give a one game suspension for that. It's It's just blows my mind and I know why they're doing it. When Brendan Shanahan was panning out suspensions, they were starting to get longer. And star players were starting to get suspended. And the NHL's like the owners, like Wait a minute. No, You're not going to suspend convict David for 10 games and take him out of our line up for 10 games. No Stop it! Stop suspending people like that. If economist David breaks his stick over somebody's had smashes his helmet 50 pieces, give him a three game suspension and let's be done with it. You know, and that's what the owners want, and that's why we're here. It's not. It's not Paris his fault. He's doing what he's told by the owners who run this league. Yes, I don't disagree. It's what they want. It's absolutely what that's. That's why I find the debate that you hear. Sometimes over one game versus two is just a total waste of time because the premise has to be that you actually want to eradicate the behavior. And they don't. So why are we bothering with one game versus to like, What's the difference? Well, they would like to eradicate the behavior. They would prefer that Butch Nevins doesn't cross check Man thin face. But they're not willing to give him the proper suspension because they don't want him out of the lineup because whether it's him or economist David or Jack Eichel or whoever we're talking about here. If it's a star player, it's going to cost that owner money because that players not in the lineup. I also think the optics of all of this, Paul like Wilson, where did we start? Right? Wilson does what he does on Monday night. He doesn't get suspended. Then we get last night. You know what show and you know Bush? Nah. Bitch him cross checking..

"Seventeen games. Yes don't forget about that so here a number and you go man. That's high last because they're seventeen games and by the way i think the nfl is coming out in two weeks. Okay i think. I want to see like the mild a the twelfth thirteenth. They make a bigger deal at schedule released than it needs to be like. I understand the big deal about the draft. I even understood the big deal about the combine when they would do that because that was of the draft. The schedule release that to me. He's never a big deal. I mean one or two games. That are interesting. Wednesday may twelfth okay. When the when the schedule released comes out all right. So this is post draft season over under totals over on. This ovando totals about the giants. I remember seventeen game. Seventeen regular season games. Where are the giants. What is that number seven and a half it. Seven over seven which is minus one twenty. Five seven number might end up going up. Okay that to me. I'm sorry seven ten season. While i'm i'm way bullish on your the giant giant over seven. I love that right now. Okay that's got to change. I think at least update eight and a half. What about the jets over a six six and a half six and a half who think the team with the worst win total in us dollars there. You go three and a half three and a half men's and it's hard to think this just one game but can imagine one in sixteen season. Fourteen own seventy could go seventeen depending on. What's going on with the shawn watson. Well the jets still not getting much respect as are ranked third worst when it comes to season over under actually tied so there's a bunch of teams at six and a half the eagles the bengals jaguars the jets all at six and a half and the lines are five. And the texans are three and a half and the team with the most team with the most would be the tampa bay buccaneer and second most eleven city chiefs. twelve where the green bay packers rodgers. They they are right now off the board they are. They are off the board right now. I cannot find the packers because they are off the board. Yep where are can. I ask you a couple other questions. Sure please boomer please. Where the dallas cowboys the dallas cowboys jack prescott back under centers. He stays healthy. Comes back on one hundred percent thing. They went after defense in the draft. Once you guess where the cowboys say they are at eight and a half nine and a half nine and a half okay. Nine and a half all right. So where are these san francisco forty niners. Okay you want take guest a. I'm gonna say nine and a half there as well ten and a half sheet ten and a hat. What jimmy garoppolo starting. Yeah ten and a half. so let's see. Another interesting team would be patriots. The patriots are going to be. Wow wow they spent so much money in free agency my god. They rebuilt their entire defensive line. Nine and a half nine knowing. No no no no. No you know anything about this. Texas am quarterback that the vikings drafted kellen monde. He's like one of these big strong athlete types. That is ross. Yeah what did you did you hear. Rg three just roast kirk cousins. Did you hear this. i did not hear it. I'll play it for you in the break if i could find it but. Rg three has no no right to roast kirk coast. This is what. I thought you were going to say about now. I laughed because you know my take on cousins. But i knew you would hate that. I knew you would hate that. All draft in the same draft that he was drafted after. Rg through johnson. Taking this job. Rg three sucked. I know that. But he's like man kirk cousins been cashing checks there for a long time to put up mediocre seasons. I was like. Let's go archie three. Yeah okay who. I was into it. He's like a kellyn mon- does all the things that kirk cousins can't do sell. That's of course he feels. I like kelly on is a big strong athlete. Who's like a rocket. Yeah you know. Even more raw than josh allen was when he came in obviously Yeah i gotta play this for you. When i when i find it interesting. Hey hey but one thing. I will say is i think he's got a future this. Rg three he wants to do. More media stuff because he had a strong opinion about it came from a place of knowledge. Now he's obviously holding a grudge. There's nobody weighs about that package. In a way that was i mean he wasn't on an on or any of that stuff. Just went right into it and mean. Good pass quality in poughkeepsie ups. Qualley yeah what is up. I love you guys. Hey man we love you got this morning. listen. I'm driving down to work. I'm driving south of sixty four. And guess what. I see on the side of the road. Don't tell me another bone a big forty foot boat unbelievable higher on one tires like you know it was like it's gonna fall down on the side of the road. Yeah i just don't understand how you don't go and get that boat right away. I just this. This was my point with the one on the way that was there for three days so the question is how long does that bokan remain there. Will you take the same dr tomorrow morning. Squall own think of you. you know what. Let me tell you that yeah. That's a good one too. I just countywide zapping their side of the road. Maybe we were taking it off to a lake or something or bringing it down. Who knows quality but i just as i said with the one on the. If you got your boat on a trailer you're blowing a tire on a pothole. The rest of my life is dedicated to get off the matter. What i needed to do weekend not weekend calling everybody. I know. i'm not just leave it there for another day right. This isn't like a hat blown off while you're on a boat into the water.

I was over when we decided back before we research. We told him not to tell them not to. That was two years ago when brendan shanahan. Actually called me. So we'll try to wherever he wants to go. He's been such a great guy up here in toronto. We own that and you know there was never really thought. I can't speak for matt. There was never really a thought. I don't think that matt would go play for the rangers even though it's original sixteen and forgotten like him. That's you know they appreciate stuff like that. Yeah and I was just like the team wasn't ready for guy matt martin two years ago now maybe next year. That's a different story. You know it'd be nice to have somebody that can actually hit back you know and get involved but but they can let them go well. They definitely need that type of presence. There's no doubt.

"Brand we know it's An incredibly busy time of year or not just in toronto but around the national league so we really appreciate you taking the time to join us here on the podcast extras. Thanks read all right. Thanks again to the president of the toronto. Maple leaves brendan shanahan throat. Punch not a big challenge. This week you know. I i i feel as the hockey gets going then. Obviously more game specific throat punching candidates for. You're going to emerge but renew at all surprised. Because i was at how much reaction there is been do the national hockey league selling ads particularly the helmet ads. I don't i don't. I don't understand why people care i don't care if there's an ad on the ellen or not that is my throat punch to the people that are complaining about this because in anything you do was advertising it so why can't the nhl advertise on their most notable product. Which is the players. So people always send. Oh yeah it's going to end up like this. Where the european teams have ads. All over their sweaters and pants and socks. I told you and i spoken about this. I went to the game and berlin last year landed was playing there right. Nobody looked like they weren't having a good time. That was the best game atmosphere. I'd been at in a long time. Remember back in the day. Because i was playing. I hate saying that. Jesus back in the day down anyway. There were no ads on the boards and when they put the first few ads on we were like. That's ridiculous those save never last. Now you're like you don't even notice them unless you see it in its advertising. What about the four places on the ice where the ads are what. I can't believe they haven't done. Why isn't there ads in the faceoff circles. That to me makes sense because everybody's stopped. You're not skating across the ad right where you might only catch a.

"Winning battles That's vital to any team to have success and that's something that That regardless of kyle's interest in analytics like you said to me analytics is just information. And if there's good information in his bad information but what's most important is what you do with that information. And when i first met him one of the things. I was really impressed with was sort of had a good idea what what bad information was. Valuable information was and As he's grown under lou lamoriello and the success that he had with the with the marlies And and sheldon what he's done is coach. coming up through the system. I just thought that they really had a good concept of how to balance the to your you mentioned sheldon rate at the end here so this is first full goal forum and it's pretty clear he's putting his stamp on how he wants things to go and not taking over a team that was in mid stride or mid stream or whatever you played for arguably the greatest coach of all time i just came from the world junior tournament in eager larry on told me that it was like sitting in the front role of a classroom with a professor but it was never always easy. So can you think of one scotty story because there's eight million that you can about how you had to figure each other out because it was not always the smooth path right. Oh no it was never smooth that you know what behind it. All status scotty and it wasn't It wasn't pleasant every day. And that's the other thing people think all when you're a winning team you want your your winning these championships or you're a contender. It's just pleasant every day. No it's it's still tough every day. You still have controversies and things like that but At the end like behind it all no matter how we felt about him on that particular day you might be. You might be happy with your coach. Might be mad at your coach. you know. Inevitably he made and so there was a trust build up there and sometimes we almost like grudgingly look back and add a line change. He had made or we'd sort of what is he doing. And then we'd score. We'd be like oh man. He did it again. he's smart he's smart But we all wanted to have a relationship with them but he wouldn't let that happen and he kept us he. He likes for us to be off balance he liked for us. I think to have to deal with adversity On the flip side if there was no adversity in a game of we were winning six. Nothing against the last place team in the third period. Scotty would not be quiet behind the bench. He was honest. Like it's like we're winning. Six seven eight nothing in scott. He just won't shut up now. He just he's talking about a show. You're not supposed to say shadowed. Scotty stop yelling. Stop seeing them. Wanna shutout up. Complaining about dropped passes complain.

"I mean that gets our attention and it creates more of the buzz reynard talking earlier in the podcast about the influence of the graybeards of the trial. May maybe even around the league a little bit and lyon matters. You've got jumbo. Wayne simmons bogosian. You mentioned jason spencer. How involved were you in that process of maybe dates back to acquire jake muslim where you recognize. Look we're still a young team are young so bring in these experienced guys now like joe forton could and probably will make a pretty big difference. I mean there's there's you describe young a bunch of different ways and some people would just use young as an excuse or or a bit of a crutch and to me That's not what this is about anytime you can like. I am foremost you've got to be able to play because it doesn't matter Who you are what your name is like. If you don't feel like you're contributing to the team in your corner of the team you get kleiner you get quite in the dressing room. You'll get quieter on the ice. So so we all recognize that that you have to have an important role and you have to feel good about your game to have a presence. In to have an impact on the mariners into matthews and in the young players in our organization that are still maybe not even in our lineup. Maybe not even making the leafs but get to see what these guys doing the gym every day. And get to see what these guys do. Practice every day So it's incredibly important. What what i would say to. Everyone is You know we we believe in balance. And i think that you're constantly seeking that out just the nature of the way that you build things in that you build. Nhl teams You don't always have the balance that you're seeking Like instantly and so. I think that You know constantly trying to move you're constantly trying to improve You're constantly trying to make your team better Other teams are are trying to be better than you trying to knock you a knock you down and and that's the nature of the competition. But i think that you know everything we did in this offseason Was meant to do to add more balance and get make ourselves a team. That not only. We've we've had some or some regular season success and we haven't had the kind of playoff success that we now think that we're capable of. I think that it's just trying to get over that hump get to that next level and you know the players that we've drafted developed Are great players and they want it. They love being maple leafs They you know. I've seen not only one difference. I've really seen here as a lot of ontario guys wanting to come home wanting to play for the leafs Wanting to be a part of that. So that's exciting. But ultimately everything gets decided on on.

"I would lean to him being a too but only for that reason you know like he he can be your franchise centerpiece. Isn't it funny. Just a few years ago. People were shocked that you cake line and walked past a finnish player and yes he. Rv to take the dubois and we've seen in short order now. Cake line was was pretty bang on so when all these rumors are coming around. Drake's if i'm calling. I know that i'm not giving the will. I be prospect in a couple of extra pairs of shoes. Like this is a costly deal. He's got two years just signed on his contract plus when he's out of that contract he's still in your team's control right. He's not at unrestricted free agency yet. So this is a costly deal for whatever team is acquiring but if it's winnipeg it's lying back the other way however they can figure that if it's if it's montreal as it kotkin hammy coming back with you know maybe one of your better prospects like guli or dot right. But i mean that's that's a big cost the right. If it's calgary you're starting with sean monahan like that's not even a it's not even a discussion like the guy you're getting back isn't four years from being a good player already a top end. Nhl player. i'm getting that back. And if you don't wanna give me that back i can't make the deal and therein really lies the danger for not danger. The the trouble for dubois is you can ask for the trade. And then his agent will say oh. They're asking too much. The line is going to say. I'm not getting offered enough. And the answer is probably. He's not getting offered enough right. Because you've got a rip the heart of your team out of your forwards that's the heart of their forwards right and you have to replace the you. General manager need to have permission to speak with the asian papper saw to make sure that this isn was season and a half and he's gone or less he's not going to stay right Because that's the reality admits. Yeah but the problem with that. So i can ask and pepper song and do block and say yeah. I'm going to stay. The can't even signed him to an extension. No not until summer correct correct. Yeah so you would have to be working in the desk drawer there to to get an extension done. That's gonna come in fact be july i. I don't know what whatever that day is going to be right when it's eligible but that would be the way that would be the only way i could strip my roster of assets to make this deal and some managers will do that. I won't give permission. I understand that. So oh and i. And i get it to get it to. You're like wait a minute. What if i give you permission. You can't get a deal done now. I've got a player. That's now three quarters of the whale. The door he's already in his head fought. I'm outta here. Yeah always not..

"Everything else. It's been kind of lingering around that senators franchise for awhile. It's really cool to see. Drake's i don't think there's anything. Dj smith can hand this kid. Did you won't be able to handle. It doesn't mean it's gonna get fifty goals. But i don't. I don't think there's anything he can't well. And i also like derek step on is just trying to shepherd this kid into the national hockey league. Having fun william talk about how he feels like. He's is adopted. Son things of that nature so right. Well i'll tell you now. You're here's a funny. Thanks so when when patrick stephan came to atlanta was nine thousand nine hundred ninety nine and my oldest son was eleven matt and patrick was eighteen and i was thirty five to the house for dinner. Patrick had more in common with match step in for cheryl. When he's got he's got a radio he's got his own kids. Who are that much younger than him. Tim still slow. So it's a weird as you get older it's like wow that's a weird sing are wrap-up headlights talked about The new kubois scenario. And i feel like we're going to talk about this on the podcast locher and season two. Obviously tell you it's dealt and there are some who believe it's going to be sooner rather than later just to avoid the distraction but you're talking about a guy early twenties six three two hundred twenty pounds center who always at least the number two in teams. The national league is dan near a number one center and who knows what the upside of of dubois is going to be here. I think conservatively we can stay. Three of the canadian teams would have of interest. And i'm talking about montreal. Winnipeg calgary and there's probably. I mean probably every canadian team would would inquire i don't know how edmonton can make it work. But why wouldn't why wouldn't ottawa inquire for sure. Why wouldn't you of course when you've got a plethora there's that word again right. Yeah i like it two weeks in a row too. I can't use the third week in a row. otherwise you do. But ottawa's got that great collection of of young players that have been at sea for sharing. Belleville like and peered oriented. He's gotten crafty during his time in in ottawa. So that that might be something can pull off. And then you look at them with the the the american based teams. We know the new york rangers are going to be in their los angeles kings anaheim ducks love to acquire. Pierre-luc watt am looking at chicago. The uncertainty of jonathan toews. What's going on there. you know. Maybe stan moment can lob something at your milkshake align in that that makes sense anyway. Give us your assessment. A beer liuyang. If a general manager for any of the teams that i've just mentioned how hard would you be on this guy. I would be on the phone right away. I man the guy is the guy has untapped offensive potential. And i say it's untapped because he's not gotten to that maturity of being able to do more to his game or columbus plaza direct straight line style fitch really good with a big really good skating Powerful centerman now. What i think of a number one center i think of the slickness of mcdavid or a dry. Seidel are matthews herb. That's that's a number one center to me..

Yeah it well. Yes i mean i think any of it like adding a goals yet. Simmons tried to address a a toughness sort of thing. It's all looking at. What our weaknesses in our strengths. Now the older guys not so sure on only in that i remember being an older guy and like your. Your legs are there. And then they're gone. You know it happens pretty quick right. It doesn't happen to a twenty seven year old happens to a forty year old. You know jason spetsnaz thirty seven Going to be You're going to be thirty eight at the end of the year. Thornton of course is plus forty. Y'all simmons has unfortunately had a lot of injuries to him that we don't really know how the pace of the game is gonna look this year because it didn't look great last year so the the list of forty year old effective players is really short. Like it's almost non existent. So they're they're asking joe to fill that spot with massey's and more they're asking him to play on the power play. Can you do it. I have no idea. I guess they probably don't know either. But for that cost the probably feel a luck. We're getting a great a one person. Which is what they have inspects it to and what they're going to get with simmons and so we're gonna put these eighty one people in the room and then probably hope that their on ice performance helps because if you think of it those three who are not gonna win any skating that's twenty five percent of your forwards every night like it it matters. Yeah it matters. So that's the unknown part of this. As far as the people anna.

"And so his his age. Probably you can multiply it forward a little bit now however vancouver had myers hughes schmidt adler and then jamie benn and a free untested totally untested players like. How is that going to work. It's not and so they get hammock in there and now you've got hammock to play with us right. That's nate schmidt's a good player so really good. Gifted is a great word that they were gifted. So now you've got schmidt playing with adler and now you know in some form. And then you've got myers with probably lady their first round pick from a few years ago who seems to have come around the corner injury wise and play wise. Now you look at the blue light and you go man. I could see that this was a good signing for them. Now i don't know drags you know this like. They can't make it official till they put. Michael furlan lt. I correct correct. And that's the league has stepped in on that too by the way right frank. Seravalli was doing some reporting on social media and whatnot. Where they're saying okay. You need to disclose us and you need to file that contract otherwise roster that you have today is the one that you're going to work with Because it is a form of cap circumvention. Right and i believe. That's why the saint louis blues did what they did in announcing hoffman. So again as we're recording this. Maybe it will be announced when people are listening. Furlan has been placed on lt. Ira that's the wiggle room for. Jim banning in the to make the one year deal. Travis helmet worked. It looks like eriksson is going to be either on a taxi squad. Or i guess that's where he'll be so a million dollars comes off to cap one point seven five. That's a you know. That's ed pebble in the shoe of cannock fans out here. That's for sure is that and they're just you know they've seen enough of of what didn't work but they're still got you know they still got some clogs in the salary cap there but this this whole division is going to is going to be a bit of a scramble and i think we all know it's gonna be really interesting but vancouver's okay i i don't think they're calgary. I don't think they're toronto. I don't think they're montreal. But i think they're in that group with edmonton winnipeg. And kinda you know. It's a in my opinion. It's going to be three team scuffle to see who gets in you mentioned. We had a brief conversation with corey. Perry and fully fits into that category too. But i call it the collection graybeards right and it seems like veteran players players was down in cup experience just experienced period of always mattered. So let's let's twist this in a different way. But i look at what the toronto maple leafs have done. Here and man. I'm intrigued by it. I am and i think this goes back to the jake. Muhsin trade with the la kings where they went. Okay we're acquiring this piece and then they realize okay. Muslims pretty good defense than but manny's good and he's good in the bench. He's good with the media and you know they'd special there again The experience factor they bring in jumbo joe thornton and they bring in wayne simmons.

"It's incredibly difficult and challenging thing. It really truly is an and then to skip from cova to injury potential fifty. Six games as a tight schedule you. I'm going through that. North division and know to winnipeg opens on thursday and then when a plague plays five games in south of nights and the majority of the seven canadian play. I think four games in six nights depending on right outbreaks gone initially no preseason games a shortened training camp. This smells a lot like muscle polls growing strains like can't dry. I just just think of this. Like guys come in really good shape. They've had time to predict when the start was going to be. Nobody's been hit. Nobody's i'm telling you the difference between being in good shape and then when somebody is slowing you down or not letting you go where you wanna go the differences miles at takes time. That's all strain on your muscles as you're trying to allude innovate and then somebody's talking and near you know there's a growing there's a low back there's something something something and it doesn't even have to be anything major but as you out the schedule somebody pulls a groin in winnipeg second game. They're going to miss five games. Just the season's only seven. What seventeen weeks long. Yeah you know that that stuff is going to be so much unknown and is gonna so much determine I think what what is probably going to play itself out so as we're recording this year. We've just had the luxury of consuming. An incredibly long list of players placed on waivers. Like i mean. I didn't count l. Eighty eight eighty nine. Today is eighty nine n predictable. Yes because again to clarify to be placed on taxi squad. You i have to clear waivers and i look at at corey perry Because i i.
