"That aren't playing anymore, but guys like Brent seabrook that have this character and ability and leadership and years in the game that you just have so much respect for and talking with those guys and they've always said you're going to get there like keep doing your doing they've been my biggest supporters and kind of always had the like when, how? I don't see the barriers, but I think it almost just hit me all at once of like, how did I end up here like this? And I knew it was going to take a conversation or two with the right person that saw something different in me and what I could bring to a team that would create potentially bring this opportunity to life. But I didn't know when it was going to happen. So I think now that I'm here, perhaps when it's all over, it's going to be like the adrenaline crash as you guys know. It's just you're so in the moment and appreciating and so grateful to be here. But yet knowing I have a job to do. And that's been my focus every single day is do my job and make sure I do it the best that I can and if we succeed, which my hope is we will succeed, then it's all going to make it that much more sweet. No question. Well, for the moment, you're where you belong and this guy is obviously the limit for Jessica Campbell. Thanks for joining us. Thank you so much, guys. Good luck, Jessica. Thank you. You know, ray Jessica Campbell is too busy for this. So in her honor, we're going to have to raise a glass of 44 year old CC. Two jazz Campbell for joining us today presented by our friends at Canadian club whisky, the 44 year old release is available everywhere. Maybe she gets back to North America after a successful men's worlds or if in the future we cross paths who knows. Maybe she'll come out to Saskatchewan and I'll give her a splash. Gotta go home eventually, right? Yeah. She's an impressive young coach. Really is. She is. I like how you can tell she wants to get right into the meat of the problem and solve it with her skill, her skill background, her skating background. I was really, really quite impressed. You know, we're surrounded by so many terrific hockey people. And I'm going to say hockey women, but I chose people for a purpose, right? You know, you're married to one, obviously, is doing great things in the hockey operations department. Emily casting gay is there. She's making her way. Rachel Dory is in Vancouver. I'm thinking of Cassie Campbell Pascal. I'm thinking a Cheryl pounder who I work with you work with. I mean, Megan Megan duggan is in New Jersey. Go down the list, right? And this is the thing pretty soon, Drake's not pretty soon already and going to be more. You can't list. There's too many. And it's just the way it should be. If a woman is qualified for a job, why can't she aspire to have it? Why can't she coach? Why can't Jessica Campbell in whatever the I never know how the coaching road works? Why can't she be qualified? If she is she is. Yeah. The one phrase I use all the time and I think it's apt is that it's not.

"Carter, huge jessamine, Dustin Brown, Brent seabrook, Robert Nielsen, Steve bernier, Zach parisi, Eric Farr, Ryan gets left, Brent burns, Mark Stewart, Mark Antoine, Ryan Kessler, Mike Richards, Anthony Stewart Brian Boyle, Jeff tambling, Corey Perry, Patrick keefe, and Sean bell. You know who I would take if I had to redo this draft first overall? Patrice bergeron. Take it in the second. Really? Taken in the second round, 45th overall by Boston. Okay, fair. And gets off number two. You wouldn't pick flurry first? No. Oh man. The goaltending is such a, that's such a good base. And he went on to win three cups, not saying he factored in two of them. For reason my top three still, but I don't know. It's like personal. I guess you could really argue bergeron or get stuff. And I think if you could redo it, most people would say, or Weber, Weber shut down as well. Boom, that's how I was going to say webby, man. They had big D, you build around Jared type fucking demon. Absolutely weba. Wow. Well, that was a fun little game. Yeah, all right, moving right along. Another Hall of Fame. Marion hos, his number 81 is going to be retired by the Chicago Blackhawks sometime next season, a date has not been announced yet. He officially retired on Thursday as a Blackhawk after signing that one day deal so he didn't have to retire as an Arizona coyote. I think that's where they shipped this car. He's the 8th Black Hawk to have his number retired 1134 points in 1309 games played, of course, he won three cups in Chicago, also played in three straight cup finals with three different teams. A trophy is the only guy that did that, but that's a pretty distinctive thing. Do you have any coyote? Jersey retirement night as well. They should match the pronger, datsyuk. Yeah, that we should just, we should put the statues up to now, get a good deal, like a three pack combo. You know, get a little bargain on it. Maybe it's one of those statues where it's like a horse bottom and they come out as like the different heads. What do you call those things? I have no idea. Do you know what I'm talking about? What like a person in the top and horse legs in the back? Yes. I think is it a minotaur? Am I sure I think? I think I'm in a tour. Let's do a mentor. There's another Hall of Famer that kind of just calling it quits. Do we got that? Doug Wilson, San Jose. After 19 years, Doug Wilson stepped down as general manager of the San Jose shocks. He's not retiring, so he may pop up elsewhere. He's just the fourth guy in NHL history with 1000 games played in 1000 games as a general manager. Even though they haven't won a cop, he definitely built the hell of a contender there for a long stretch. Only Pittsburgh and Boston have won more games and have more points than San Jose while under Doug Wilson. Only the pens have appeared more playoff rounds, 31 to 30. They had 5 Western Conference final appearances. They got to these 2016 Stanley Cup before they lost the Pittsburgh. The team, they said they're going to take their time finding a new GM owner hassel plattner. He doesn't want a full rebuild. He wants someone to come in and take over this team right now. They have cap isn't tough shape though. I sent the link over to you guys. He's going to have some work to do, whoever the new GM is, but any words on Doug Wilson stepping down. Well, I think it was Eliot Friedman was saying that John Ferguson junior, who's the assistant with the coyotes might be one of the frontrunners. And I think the comments from ownership were, they want somebody who's maybe a little bit more vocal and more of a presence and maybe talks to the media more. I think Doug Wilson, first of all, unreal job during his entire time there. I would say probably one of the top GMs found it fascinating that they've only had two GMs in the whole length of the franchise. I don't know if you mentioned that off the hop and you talk about the sustained success. Western Conference Finals you had 5 of them, one Stanley Cup finals, you had one president's trophy and they'd be playoffs 14 times during his 19 years. So a very, very impressive run. I think that the some of the deals maybe as of late would have, you know, we're still going to see how that ends up transpiring, but overall body of work fucking hell of a job man sustained excellence and enjoy retirement, well deserved. I don't know if you would say a Hall of Famer as a general manager too. Is that fair to say what you need to win a Stanley Cup to get that consideration? Probably, but I mean, I think the run he added to be that good of a player 8 time all star Hall of Famer Norris trophy winner and to turn it into being able to build the team that successfully it's just an amazing run by him and I hope everything's going on going well. I know he took a step back and nobody really knew what was going on. I think he's pretty private, but yeah, it's just a hell of a career on both business side and playing side because he's been able to really kind of figure it out and build a team that so many people picked up to win Stanley cups. They couldn't get over the hump at socks, but it is interesting, but it's like where they go from here because they've handed out they usually didn't hand out long-term deals and then they gave 8 years to burns. They gave 8 years to Carlson they gave 8 years to get sure they just gave 8 years to hurdle. They gave 8 years to vlasic. So they were chucking them around constantly and it's been a tough little goal, but like the owner mentioned in terms of not wanting a full rebuild, I wouldn't expect that because I don't think if hurdle heard that that was the plan, he would have resigned. So they're going to have to open up cap space to probably going to have to buy out vlasic. They're going to have to make some tough decisions there personnel wise because there needs to be a turnover and a quick turnover if they don't want to have a full complete rebuild and talk about a fucking man rocket, too..

"W G. M. This is Chicago's afternoon news at 409 on this rather dreary Monday afternoon. Thanks so much for joining us, it's John Hanson. I'm filling in for Steve Bertrand will take you right up till seven o'clock and we got a pretty packed show today. Just a little bit. We're gonna be talking with Congressman Raja Krishnamoorthi. He wants to raise taxes on the cigarettes here in Illinois. We already pay 15%. If you're an e cigarette smoker, he wants a federal tax on top of that to stop teenagers or at least help prevent teenagers from taking up these cigarettes. He joins us in just a little bit to chat about that. We got the courthouse reopening, chatting with Sean Lewis and just a little bit. And then I mentioned that dreary weather. We got Chief Meteorologist for News Nation, Albert Ramon. He'll Hoppus on or he'll hop on and tell us when that might that pattern at least may break but I want to say hello to everyone. Mr Kevin Powell. How are you doing, my friend Busy sports Day, Especially on the ice. Yes, very. Over the past few days. We have heard some rumors. Some reports that this deal was in the works, and now it appears to be done. Duncan Keith and also Blackhawks. Great, Of course, a huge piece to the three Stanley Cup winning recent Hawks teams adult to the Edmonton Oilers. It's It's not been made Official yet by the Blackhawks are the Oilers, but Multiple outlets reporting that Duncan Keith after 16 seasons with the Hawks is headed to Edmondson. In return free up younger should say Prospect he's played in the league, but the defenseman Caleb Jones, and a third round draft pick. Also a big part of that deal is Edmonton. Taking the rest of Duncan Keith salary, which is roughly $5 million off the cap this year, So that gives Stan Bowman a little bit more flexibility in what should be an already busy off season for the Hawks. I can't imagine that number two not going up in the rafters at some point. I mean, unbelievable When you look at his numbers and look, I think Duncan Keith over the past couple years has still been good. He's still been a very good defenseman. It's 37, though, and to ask him to tell his 27 28 minutes a night. There's probably a bit much Um you do it, though he would do it without? Yeah, Yes and only 27 tonight, Coach? Sure. But you look back at him in his prime. When when he was paired with Brent Seabrook. Uh, Duncan. Keith was absolutely everything you could want in hockey player. I mean, he was shutdown defenseman. Two way defenseman as well. So just an unbelievable career with the Hawks again, not official just yet, But it seems to be just a just about a done deal. We'll break that down a little bit later on home Run Derby Tonight. You get excited for the home run Derby, John. No, no, not, you know, Ever since it became guys hitting 30 and I don't know I like to. I sound like an old grumpy man. But I did the old days when they hit the 515 ft. Juiced up on steroids in the nineties, hitting it out of Miller Park. It isn't Denver, so expect the ball. Flying out tonight. So I think the story of your starting pitcher. Also being your leadoff hitter is something crazy probably didn't deserve it with the numbers he has. But Shohei Otani of the Angels, the two way star, which he is having an incredible you probably could have made a case for Carlos are down at the White Sox to get that nod, But Lynn maybe or Lance Lynn, one of those two guys, but show your town is just such a big story this year, kind of made sense. Kind of cool. It's kind of cool. Hey, Lauren Napkin. What was that number that they're going to call me out again? If I won a million dollars? Let me grab that for you. It's very important. You don't want to miss its 31281435 to 4 and they will or they will email you so and ER or check the spam folder d ph dot communications at Illinois dug up. I trust me. I've been like refreshing my email that I never look at in Gmail. This isn't like some terrible radio station promote where they've got to be listening. Answer. When they call and say Did I won the vaccine lottery? I will say they'll they'll give you seven days to get back to them, and they'll continue to try and reach out. But, hey, don't miss that call. I know $100,000 is nothing compared to the Million Dollar prize given out last Thursday, but that's still a good chunk of change. So I mean, I take it. I'm not even kidding. I have a 312 number calling me right now. But it is not the rest of your family, You know? So just your standard, You know, my car warranty expired. Just answer it here. Live on the air. John, who knows? Answer and be like, Hey. I need this line clear for the vaccine. Well, what happens if we call this number now? I don't want to do that live on the program. But can you put in a good word? I don't know. Like, really Get ahead on it. How about me? You know, Has anyone thought to call the number instead? Just let you guys know I'm available. If you want to call this number back any good news for me? Exactly. And Mary Vandeveld. I wanted to bring you in on here because I heard your conversation with Lisa Dent. About Airbnb and your husband's, uh, if you weren't listening, he doesn't want to stay at a bed and breakfast because he feels like people have died in the homes talking like an old house, right? Because a lot of bed and breakfast or old houses and he doesn't know what happens in hotel rooms. Right? Like, well, yeah, he He loves hotels loves them. I don't get it at all, because I love the ambience of an old house. You know the whole thing and breakfast if they make it for you, and I love that, but We can't go because he just doesn't want to. And some of the beds are really high, You know, And then he really boy, he is particular. It's just funny because he is kind of short. But, you know, I just think like a dead guy in the bed. That's I mean, okay, fine. There's worse things that I could think of it. You know, whatever you know, Just turn off your brain when you're laying, you know, it's been a while. It was like 20 years ago, so maybe he's changed his ways. But we haven't tried it since 4 14..

"The city. I'm Lisa Dent on 7 20 w g N for Anna Duplantis. I'll be in tomorrow from 1 to 4 as well, Um, we've got to talk about the Duncan Keith thing. Kevin Powell in our sports department is with me. But, Kevin, I know you are an avid golfer. Um So did you watch the American century championship yesterday? I watched a little bit of it. Yes. Where you locked into it? Yes. I don't even know why, but because I was seeing some familiar faces. You know, a lot of the Bears were playing. I mean, Brian Urlacher, Robbie Gold. Matt Nagy, Kyle Fuller, Jim McMahon, Doug Flutie. I didn't see any of them. All I saw was Vinny del Negro. That was because he was the leader. I didn't know if Vinny Del Negro was such a great golfer. I know John Smaltz has been around Tony Romo. Those are guys names you see, and kind of here around the golf circuit as well. Steph Curry was out there. Mike McDonnell, longtime hockey player, Um Yeah, it's always It's a star studded event. For sure. I mean, there are a lot of, uh, celebrity outings. This one actually draws a huge celebrity crowd. Justin Timberlake was out there. Roger Clemens, Jerry Rice. So all the big sports names were together points in golf and out of all the Chicago names. I mean, Vinny Del Negro. Want it but out of the Bears, I guess Robbie Gold shot the best round. So what did you shoot this weekend? I'm sure you got in around. I did get it around Saturday. Would you finished just in time, with little bit of rain falling out in the suburbs, But we did get a full 18. It was supposed to play yesterday morning, but That was a washout. So at least got one round in. So I was happy with that. Okay, Let's talk about Dunkin Keith. You know, I get very attached to people, especially if it's somebody that plays for the Hawks or the bowls or the or the Bears. And and then I. I feel really sad when when they're traded off or they're gone, or they choose to leave. Yeah. So the reports are that Duncan Keith is headed to the Edmondson Oilers for defenseman Caleb Jones and a third round pick, also a major part of the deal. It is being reported that the Walkin Consume, can will take on all of Duncan Keith salary, so that does give them some much needed salary cap flexibility heading into this off season. It's not an official deal yet. We haven't got anything from the Hawks, but It seems like it's just about a done deal. Duncan Keith to the Edmonton Oilers, But yet to your point, I mean, you think about that core of Tase Kane, who still remain with Corey Crawford. No longer with the team. Brent Seabrook stepping away from hockey now, Duncan Keith Marion Hossa, so really, just have that core of the three Stanley Cups. Just the to remain in cane and tapes, But, yeah, I don't think we can overstate how great of a player Duncan Keith was He still, I think plays at a good level high level. Certainly not dead his elite level when he was winning Norris Trophies. Um when you know you look back at some of those years during those that Stanley Cup run what Duncan keep meant to that team, but just a complete hockey player. He's a complete shutdown Defenseman. Everything you would want in a defenseman, one of the best Blackhawks players ever. But you know, it's great. He's one of those guys. Much like Greg Olsen was for the Bears or Robbie Gold, who have foundations based in Chicago that raise a lot of money. And for him, you know, I always loved is is Keith relief at Joe's Bar, and I think it's raised like Recorders of a million dollars for the Ronald McDonald House Charities of Chicago land and I'm sure he'll take that to the next town that he's in. But I think that builds a fan base that goes beyond sports where people are very thankful for what some of these athletes do in our community to Benefit our community and all of us who live in it for sure. And you know when you have that platform here and how crazy sports obsessed we are in Chicago, and, you know, they think once they understand you see, like the work when Anthony Rizzo does and things like that A lot of these guys do and I'll contribute. So when you do have that platform and you do have an audience and a fan base that's going to be on board with pretty much anything you're doing. As well take advantage of it. So yeah, for sure, Duncan Keith, But, you know, we knew at some point this this incredible run the Blackhawks, head from the core would slowly come to an end Duncan Keith's 37 years old, It's the direction that I think a lot of us are have kind of seen with the Blackhawks. And when Stan Bowman is doing with the roster turnover, they were going to have to go this route eventually, but Getting younger was key. Obviously so, so moving on from Duncan Keith. Um not not a major surprise, considering the direction of the team, But yeah, I mean, Just an absolute legend here in Chicago Sports. And with the Blackhawks. Yes. So, thanks to Duncan for all He's done home Run Derby tomorrow night. I know tonight tonight. Yeah. Who wins? Who do you think wins? Shohei Otani is the betting favorite? He's the leader in baseball. He's the two way sensation with the Angels. He pitches. And he hits a lot of home run, so he's actually gonna start on the mound for the American League, and he's going to D. H and he's going to lead off. So, um, that'll be fun to see him in the All Star Game tomorrow night, but the home run Derby. It's an eight player brackets they do now and they're timed rounds and it's three rounds. So, um Thani's The betting favorite. I'm going to go with Juan Soto of the Washington Nationals. That's my pick for you. Okay, I'll hold that to you tomorrow. Okay? Um, And so I don't know if this is actually considered a sport, but I wanted to talk to somebody about it. So you're my guy, Kevin Powell. Um, professional tag. Have you ever watched that on T V? I have not watched it on TV. No, it is the craziest thing. Anyone listening. Watch this because Somebody turned me onto it, and it is literally it's like it's like one room with lots of obstacles, and the whole point of the sport is to tag the other guy, and it is the most intense, crazy thing you have ever seen. And these athletes are so agile. It's just it's inexplicable. You need to check it out. It's a step up from your basic playground tag. When we were growing up. It is called professional tag for a reason. You can't even believe you care to believe in it. There's actually skill and there's a method to winning. And yes, of course, it was one of my nephews that said, You have to watch this and I'm like, is that even a thing and it is and it's Pretty much something everybody needs to. You know what I think? I've seen highlights of this where it's almost like, not an obstacle course. But as you said, it's kind of just there's things that they have to jump over and run down and run around. Yeah, yeah, yeah, it almost looks like a skateboard park or something, You know, But the competition is on. We should play a professional, uh, tag game here at the radio station, and I'll just run around this afternoon. We'll select one person to begin my money's I'm Mary van develop. She was. She's always walking around the station anyway. So can cream. You guys lay of the land here, Okay..

It would probably be pretty tough to have to sit there and watch the game on TV and know that your fate is sealed that you are not gonna make the playoffs and I'm sure that was the emotion felt like All of the Stars players and be very interesting to see how they play here this afternoon.

"I think the brink it has talked about it as well. Hasn't it like you deserves some credit for for what? We're watching this team do right now, Doesn't he? No question. No question. First of all, Think back 23 seasons ago when he took over in November for Joel Quenneville. Hey, had had one year in Rockford under his belt, had some success with them. He gets thrown into the fire with a team that had basically had one coach for 10 years and a system. That was specific to Joel and they had their routine. Everybody understood it. Here comes a guy who was younger than Duncan Keith younger than Brent Seabrook as the head coach, So I think there's probably its trust. Issue there off the top, just hearing a different voice. Then you throw in last year shortened by the pandemic. I think it was really important. For that team to go toe Edmondson last year in the bubble and to see them rewarded for the style of play that Jeremy wants this team to Diogo. And it was that Series win over admitting that screwed up their their their draft order, so to speak, But I think not only show the players that his system Is something that can work and be rewarded in this league. But I think it gave Collison some confidence as well as a young coach, that the road he was heading down. Eyes. The correct one and then this season could not have started any worse guys. It looked like a death march for games in. They've given up 20 goals and not won a game. And they've turned it around to be this surprisingly fun team to watch. So yes, he does deserve credit for this because I think those you know eight rookies that were and and second your players that were in the lineup last night. They're probably more inclined to accept what the marching orders are from a coach. But now there's on Lee, a few veterans that are around and both Keith and Cane I can tell you are buying in. Totally. They are. They are accepting their mentor ship role for some of these other guys. They're thinking back 14 years ago, Patrick King when he broke into the league and who helped him along. Duncan's going back 16 17 years thinking about when he entered the league and who brought him off and he's now paying it back. And so it's been a total by in, it's been surprising. And I do think the coach Jeremy Collison while he's never gonna win a press conference, just not his style. Hey, deserves credit for the way this team is playing, Pat. What is the bottom line here? Are they not bad or or the Blackhawks? Actually good. I think they're they're closer to, uh, between not bad and good. I mean, think their up and coming. I don't think we need to start planning the parade route. Or get ourselves ready for for the Tom Brady Tampa tour. I think this is a young team that has has decided to give these guys an opportunity. Two. Figure out whether or not they're building blocks for a championship team and again, I still hold out hope. I think Jonathan Tae's is going to be back at some point this year. I don't think Kirby Doc will come back. I think that's a would be too much of a risk, especially with an a risk injury to a center Menand and the importance of taking draws. I think there's a really good chance that the captain comes back. And could you imagine the team that is humming the way it's been humming with points and 10 of their last 11 games? You know the third ranked power play the 10th rate penalty kill, surprisingly, getting good goaltending all of a sudden gets one of the best leaders in the game. That would be the trade deadline acquisition of all trade deadline acquisitions. And that would make this team even stronger. So still holding out hope that that could happen. I'm I'm not expecting them to make the playoffs, but I think they're gonna make it an interesting run to try and get into that Top four at this point, isn't it? They exceeded our expectations. Which were very, very low, but that does I'm not taking anything away from them because they've been really fun to watch. But it's a small sample size and just the best way that you could describe it to yourself is is just keep your expectation levels. Had a reasonable spot, right? PB? Yeah, but I mean that, you know, we're in Chicago, so I mean, it's It's like, you know, the Bears went 12 games one year and we expect them to make the next step in the following year and And that's where we you know, were 14 games in and you're having me on the show. I probably not on the show today if they had two wins, and they were in last place in the central, so Yes, we should be. Absolutely encouraged with what we saw. We've seen so far. They have exceeded expectations. But this is just the beginning. This is just, you know, a foundation, so to speak. You're trying to figure out if all of this is sustainable. I mean, I said this on the hockey show last week on ESPN 1000 Saturday morning, lieutenant that like I was in the camp that I wanted to see. Corey Crawford back for like a one year deal. I thought that made sense. I thought it was too risky with the defensive performance that I saw from this team the last couple years, giving up so many high danger chances on every given night. Turn it over to three unproven netminders. Had they gone that route and brought Cory back or say any veteran were 14 games in That veteran would have started minimum 8 to 9 games, the other three would have had to split up the other 45 games. There's a chance Kevin LinkedIn may have one game under his belt or no games under his belt because he was the third option this year. Imagine if they would have gone the conservative route off, bringing in an established veteran netminder and try to find a replacement among the group. We may have no idea that we've got a gem underneath our finger here and Kevin liking it. So it's an example of When you make the decision to go all in. Yeah, you open yourself up to, uh, speculation and things could go south. But something like this could happen. That would not have if you've gone the traditional round. That's why we go with Tyler Bray next year. We need to find AARP use at quarterback. I think the thing get Ryan pace over to Europe. Maybe maybe maybe the bears of Mrs all along there, that's good, while We'll send him to Europe and leave him there. That's probably good bastard. Yeah, great stuff. P b. We will be listening in the hockey show 10 A.m. on Saturday and we will be watching on NBC. Sports Chicago. Yep. Tomorrow night back on against Columbus. See if they can keep this thing going. Yeah, I love it. Brothers games really quick. There's Pat Boyle all over the black Watch this much regular season hockey. I think years I know and it's good. It's good to have them playing well. It really is that the Bulls have an interesting game tonight as well. We could talk a little about that, and also cap tried to explain himself. Play you that next bottle.

"They have to have a mindset here that when you get in the offensive zone, spend some more time in that area. But when you have the opportunity, you've got to get bodies and park to the Net. And boy it just When you look at the gold look at the goals that they scored against Detroit, and they had five even strength goals in that last game, and you sit here and say, Well, Jeepers, we're going to the net and throw in the park to the Met. There's rebounds there. We're doing what we need to do. And all of a sudden it it it went right out the window. So you got attacked the middle of the ice tonight against Nashville, and I don't know why they've had such lack of success and scoring against national. Yeah, the Ah good team. They basically rolled with four defenseman. They didn't really play there. Third pairing. In the game last night, And when you've got Yoshi and Alison that comb and Fabbro out there, you got to make it tough on them. You gotta make them defend a lot more and use up some energy and their own into the ice, so they don't have the energy and the offensive side of it because those big fork back there Nashville expect them to play a lot of ice time tonight. But if it's an easy amount of ice time because they're not working hard, not battling. That's bad for the Blackhawks for those six goals on Sunday against Detroit, came below the dots. And between the circles building better by design is sponsored by architect of Chicago and creating thousands of gathering spaces for Chicago and families. And on yesterday's pretty game we heard from Brandon Hagel, who continues earning his time in the lineup and how he made his NHL debut on March 11th the final game before the pause. Hagel had to wait until last week, but he's been in the lineup since. Now, Nicholas Bohdan, who is Adam Beau Qu'est. Fellow 2018 1st Round pick gets his second chance tonight. Ready after waiting and putting together one of the more impressive training camps that kept him on the taxi squad. Yeah, I don't think it was a lost opportunity for me. You know, I just came and I played one game and I think I did well, so I was really happy about that. And just here. It's just about getting better every day, you know. I want to show that out of my place here with what everyone continue to be better, You know, gapping up, killing, placing the DEA's own making some place and I think all of those stuff. They just it just gone with confidence, so I just need to build build up my confidence, continue to build it up, and I think it's just gonna be good for me. Well, he instilled some confidence in the coaching staff with the way he worked in the off season since he put on about 80 £10 still not a big defenseman. He won't be all his. You know, Bread and butter is going to come with his stick work in his footwork and reading plays and he gets another opportunity here tonight, And I know Jeremy Carlson very complimentary. I think he was tempted earlier on to insert Bohdan into the lineup. The opportunity here comes tonight. What have you seen from him and training camp compared to previous camps. I think there's a different confidence level and an awareness of how you have to play in the NHL. When you first come in you. You really have no idea. You have no clue. What it takes to play in the NHL. And that comes over coming into training camp, Seeing how guys like Duncan Keith on the blue line, Brent Seabrook, the veteran players prepare themselves and how hard they have to work Tonto shin themselves to play at at this level, and that's something that for the younger players, they just don't understand. They think they work out hard, but they don't understand how hard they actually Have to commit to what you do in the off season, and it sounds like Bohdan did that this offseason. He put on some weight. He said that he feels better that way. And I think Justin awareness of how the game is played at this level. Is something that that he can build on from the lessons that he's learned when he's been in camp when he's been in the all of the groups with it with the veteran players, So you know, we'll see what happens tonight. Looks like Jeremy Colton is gonna roll seven defenseman I thought last night when you had some guys on the blue line struggling Um, that it was tougher for Sheldon Brooke Banked who runs the defense and Jeremy College in to find guys who were ready to go out there who were playing at a level that you needed to have. So actually much time was they spent in their own zone last night. Yeah, so I think that by going with seven defenseman, you know, he's basically telling a lot of people in the line up on the on the blue line there that if you don't play well and you're not performing, you're not going to see the ice because we've got an extra guy in the lineup for that reason, all right, Thanks for the knowledge, Troy let you go. Ready for the call with John and stop the are Thanks for the swag. Thanks for the swag is How funny is that way? Didn't talk before this, So, Yeah, we're the Bobbsey triplets, I guess coming up. Next we go behind the bench with head coach to hear me, Callison. I will create opportunities in transition, or, you know, we get a puck back in the offensive zone. You're close to the net, and you're ready to create a chance. Like all Taki is sponsored by Bud Light. There's a Bud light there. Vandal Sports book You look Leon Citgo Feeling good plumbers..

"The United Center tonight looking for their first road win, while the Hawks they just want to win period high and everyone John Weidman, along with Troy Murray and Chris Boden, we want to welcome you into our broadcast and Welcome you back to the United Center. It's been a long time. Troy. Since I've been able to see that March 11th of 2020 when the Blackhawks played the San Jose Sharks and seemed like the world shut down after that, we had no more games to talk about here. He eventually did get to work during the summer in the playoffs, which was cool. And then finally, this season came back around in the month of January, and we're all happy about it. It's great to see them playing hockey on this ice surface right now, and it troubles our hearts to know that the greatest fans in hockey are not among us here. That's going to come in time. But for tonight we have an original six rivalry that I know you was a player love to take part in. Welcome back, but well, thank you. I remember that, like it was yesterday. The N B A. If you recall it. Postponed their season that night breaking news that the MBA was postponing their season. So you knew something was gonna happen, But I don't think anybody had a clue. But but what? Actually Was going to happen just an incredible amount of time here that we've dealt with this pandemic and it's not over yet. And we wish everybody who was dealt with the issue. All the best in every way. I know from heartbreak and It's just been tough. But we're happy to be back here at the United Center, doing what we love to do, and that's called the games and I'm excited to see this rivalry blossom again this season, the first of eight between these two Original six rivals, and for so many years I was a part of it in the old North division throughout the eighties and The Blackhawks. The older players were a part of it while they were still in the same division, so it's changed a little bit. Obviously, you don't see him all that much. But I'm excited for this opportunity here at the United Center to see these two teams play. It's a very meaningful game. Um, Red Wings is we've talked about it, Chris said to wood to all on home Ice Blackhawks getting their first taste here at the United Center looking for their first victory, so should be exciting. Should be good. Now it is the home opener, and that means that there are ceremonies involved before the start of the action here tonight, right now. Members of the team that are primarily part of the taxi squad being introduced right now, and some injured players taking part in this. It's great to see Brent Seabrook come to the Blackhawks bench and give a wave to everybody. He's dealing with back issues will get to his segment here in a minute, along with That of John Seabrook could wave to the crowd. The young guys, they can't That would be a little too much. That's right. That's exactly right. Well, let's get to some sponsored items right now, starting with the injury report it sponsored by Blue Cross Blue Shield of Illinois, the card to carry through it all. I'll go ahead and start with veteran Brent Seabrook. He is on injured reserve with back issues and we're hoping he'll he left real soon would be great to see him back in the lineup and of course long term injured. Reserve for Alex. Knee Lander. Jonathan Tapes, Blackhawks captain And Kirby Doc, all with different ailments. We wish all of those gentlemen all the best and hope to see them back into the line up real soon, and now the Blackhawks regular players introduced down below us on the ice surface. Let out of the tunnel by Blackhawks goaltender Malcolm Suban and followed by Colin Delia, Kevin Lankan and then companies. So it Z gonna continue on as it usually does the kid. Let's get to tonight's keys to the game. Troy if we can, they're sponsored by Bud Light. Hey, there's a Bud light there. Go get him with the keys. Thanks, John, the first key And they kind of talked about this. They want to get off to a really good start here. You know, they played four games on the road. They're back home. Familiar surroundings. Get off to a good start. That's that's the key here, and the second key is they don't want to chase this game. They haven't had the lead, but about half a minute. Yeah. This so they they just can't keep chasing the game. Get off to a good start score the first goal. Don't fall behind and then chased the game. I mean, everything has to adjust and Jeremy College and has to look at his vengeance. And try and figure out where he's going to get those goals from where you're gonna have that comeback ability in the last game. They did it a couple times, but you don't want to keep put yourself in that position. The third key is keep working on the defensive structure. Still too many breakdowns Jeremy Collins and talks about it. Is there still a work in progress, and that's true, but I thought we saw some signs that it was heading in the right direction in the last game, and hopefully they continue that here in their own and tonight and play better. Defensive. All right. Thanks for those keys. Try it. Now at the the Introductions. Continue way see some new faces in the lineup in these these guys have played four games together, all on the road down in Tampa, and, of course down in South Florida. Team record now old, three and one, But trending, I'll say are the Blackhawks in the correct direction. They picked up their first point in that last game down there went to overtime. I think that their confidence is built with each passing games. Yeah, and you look at these. These younger players that they organization really wants to get a look at it. They actually made a move. To give these guys another opportunity. Brandon period was sent to the taxi squad. Carl Soderberg is with the team skated yesterday for the first time. You know when he's available, he's going to fit in there. Everybody was kind of. Well, you know Jeremy Collins and said, You know, we want to see what the young guys could do. And yet you're saying OK, Well, Brandon period didn't sent to the taxi squad. And Carl, Sir Soderbergh is with the team. Um He wasn't talking about all sort of burden. When he made those comments he was talking about what a few suitor has done, and Philip Curtis shatters done. You want to see them because you know what Brandon period could do. And.

What to make of Blackhawks moves on NHL trade deadline day

"And talk a little bit more about what the Blackhawks did we bring in Charlie a room only autos from Anna corona hotline from N. B. C. sports Chicago Charlie how are you tonight Fred you nailed my last name they're not a lot of people can do that on the first try well I've been I've said it three times during the show so I try to get it right it is actually the more you look at it the more it is exactly like it's spelled sell it all but that is I'm I'm sure I'm sure you've got a letter from cap though well yeah well I in everything we've all got lessons from cap have only let's be honest yeah yeah we generally did did the Blackhawks get get done what they wanted to do today I think the goal and Stan Bowman even said this in a conference call it should basically recruit some of those graphics that they gave up for the end you're salty on it and try to get a you know they got a goal tender in return in a defenseman prospect but I think if you put them on a lie detector test or some truth serum okay perfect probably would have loved to get a first round pick out of out of today is that the reality is the market wasn't really to their favorite like six six first round picks removed in the month of February and neither one of those picks removed for rental so the Blackhawks moved to other youth expiring USA then they got a second round pick in the end plus prospects and then a third round pick forgot to send in a little bit underwhelming but you know that's what the market dictated it's interesting you bring that up Charlie because I guess the question at this point that is do you think the hawks waited too long in determining whether or not they were to sell it because obviously they had a little run there you know in the end of the at the end of December and January what it felt like they were getting hot do you think they maybe put too much stock in the fact that they were playing well but you know at the same time they they were still on the outside looking in it when when you're finally you know got around to the trade deadline here yeah it it's a good point and you wonder if the the blackouts could have gotten more for robin Lehner if they had treated him earlier but at the same time went when they come out of that bye week and they come out with a big win against Arizona like if they had it really had quite off type vibes where this team was close to knocking on the door and then you go on that five game western Canada trip and if you take care of business there like you're you're probably gonna be about a playoff spot if you pick up six seven point six or eight points on that trip and and that the fact they only picked up a few things started to spiral then obviously the we saw a lot of trade happened last week where a lot of defenseman got moved in and you wondered if the Blackhawks were gonna pull the trigger on America if it's been deleted get out in front of that but they stayed patient and I don't know if they were trying to package and Eric Gustafson with another asset like a robin letter to try all the packaging of the return and try to get that first round pick that they're covering but unfortunately they weren't able to make it happen Charlie you mentioned letter there and I think a lot of hawks fans are wondering he he will reportedly he was willing to consider a three year deal with the hawks now you know I don't know if we've seen confirmation of that report but it's out there that robin Lehner was willing to potentially talk a three year deal with the hawks do you think that something that was truly in their interest or do you think they just don't want to be locked up long term with robin Lehner due to maybe a quirky history to say the least well I I'm not sure about it because robin Lehner is on record saying that he didn't want to take a discount like you felt like you wanted to be paid market value and and he deserves that what whatever he was asking for he deserves what he wants and if the Blackhawks were gonna offer him he offered what he wanted like he had every right to take it to and and has every right to take it to the summer and get exactly what he's looking for the the fact that if you know the Hawkins did offer a three year deal letter would have been willing to take lasted it do a three year deal I feel like the team would have pulled the trigger on it because I I don't know necessarily if they were looking to try a lot of money and term to to robin letter because that's just not exactly how they operate in it we see all around the NHL now teams are very reluctant to give big contracts to goaltender than in the Florida Panthers are seeing it right now they they find Sir David Gonski two an eight year contract worth ten point five million dollars and he has been performing this season so I think maybe that's also what is scaring off the hawks and wanted to have that type of security with the goaltender another couple minutes where's Charlie Roumeliotis from the Blackhawks insider at NBC sports Chicago the guys they get back for a for a letter is is that yes they need to get some names back or is to Bangor to be their back up for the rest of the season or what you know what's going on yeah I imagine so I read in Markham Sudan will be the Blackhawks is back up you know barring any injuries and I know the Blackhawks do have calling deleon Kevin Lincoln in downtown Rockford who have both been playing really well like Kevin like that had a really good start to the season that now his play has tailed off Collin Delia really struggled at the beginning of the year and now he's been really good so if you have two young goaltenders in Rockford but I imagine now comes through and it's probably gonna be grooms here said to either be the backup going forward at least for the rest of the season and then we'll see beyond this year Charlie do you think a Jonathan Tay's will finish his career with the Blackhawks there's been rumblings are speculation mostly from fans that you know he could be somebody down the line the hawks might consider moving if they they were able to get a hall for him but to me Jonathan tapes just seems like the type of player who gently down the Blackhawks want retiring in a Blackhawks Jersey yes absolutely and I I don't blame Patrick Kane Jonathan three Duncan Keith those core players I don't blame them for being frustrated like they want to win in Chicago but the the problem is if they don't want to go somewhere else to win another ring like their soul that and they have no movement clauses in their contracts read that they want to spend the rest of your career here in Chicago and they want to win the Stanley Cup again in Chicago so I don't see that it man it would be if thirteen is out of date senior retired Black Hawk that it wouldn't feel right if they if they went somewhere else Charlie one last quick one for you what is the biggest need for the hawks this offseason to try and get them back on track and into the playoff conversation next year yes hi it's tough because you kind of want to see how this you know they've been battered by injuries particularly that of the blue line with Calvin Han and Brent Seabrook and then Andrew Shaw you know I would I would sail and it is those guys need to get healthy first and then you want to see how your developments are going with Adam vocalist and Kirby dach but to me ideally like you need you need another top six winger like you need another top six four they have Jonathan Tate and Kirby docking Dylan Strome and and obviously Patrick Kane and Alex DeBrincat but they don't have really that photo type scoring winger that can help balance out the lines and I'm not saying that the Blackhawks have it all made on their depth on their defensive group because they tell but you look at the reality is they have five guys under contract for at least the next two seasons after that and that's not even including Adam vocalist and potentially Ian Mitchell so I want to say a top four defenseman but it just didn't seem feasible because all the they have all these guys tied up Charlie I know it's been a long day we appreciate jump around for a few minutes no problem guys thanks for having me

Predators Sign Captain Roman Josi to Eight-Year Contract

"It's ESPN and ice but yes for ESPN talks about hockey I'm grateful NHL Writer I'm Emily Kaplan National Nhl reporter indeed you are so today the big finally get some actual hockey news talk about other than like injuries and stuff the Nashville predators call the press conference today like everybody be at the arena like eleven thirty 'cause we got a lot of things to talk about Oh what could it be could it be everybody knew immediately was the Roman you'll see extension eight years the Max nine point zero five nine for number fifty nine on the for this contract making Roman Yo see the third highest paid defensemen via the CAP heading into next season behind only Eric Carlson Andrew he is twenty nine currently will be turning thirty on June first of next year so emily we think of this contract firstly after talk about this trend this is the NHL trend. I feel of the last eighteen months when you sign a new contract it has to have some owed to your Jersey number in it and it's just ridiculous to me it's too cutesy it doesn't make any sense I don't know if the players leaving money on the table I'm not the team is like besides looking cute and a press release what is the purpose I will say this as well kind of a beat trend when you consider that Wayne Gretzky's numbers retired or all around the league and no one can ninety nine ninety nine it'd be the number I would use if you're going to pull the contract mullarkey that's for sure but I look I think that Roman Yosi over the last couple of years I've been one of the most consistent and best defencemen in the League he's a guy that we should be talking about enormous conversations probably over the next two to three years that's what level is at the most shocking part about it to me is the no movement clause because that is something that David Poile infamously does not give out here and Piranha or the only guys on the roster who have it and you mentioned his age he's about to turn thirty of this brings him to what thirty nine years old we're at a time where hey the blackhawks are playing the predators tonight on Tuesday recording this and we're talking about thirty four year old Brent seabrook halfway through his contract with a new movement clause that is looking pretty bad and getting scrapped for the second straight day and I don't think that Romeo who's on that same exact trajectory but we see why these things do become troublesome down the road right so doughty's contract was thirteen point eight four percent of the cap when he signed it trying to or Carlson's contract when he signed his this past summer accounted for fourteen point four seven percent of the cap and then Romeo Issues contract is eleven point one you percent of the cavs so greg numbers you get the sense that that's often couch come on what am I I always I always I was wave past math in high school I went in the back of the book copy down every a answer every lake odd-numbered question had the answer and then just a bunch of nonsense on top of it and hope that was right and if I was right like my goal was like a seventy five just get me through it did what I could so get degrees get the feeling that this this salary this is for the contract probably settles in around this much it's down from where the Romans camp was looking for they wanna like nine five it probably settles in around here because partially because of the trade protection that's that's a hell of a caveat from Poi- like you said and and because of it you know this this number on the open market is over ten I think for a defense of his of his vision Ilk we've been talking a lot about Albatross lately insofar as him being a Ufa and you know these kinds of guys don't become available when you look at a team like for apple like the Vegas Golden Knights like we've talked about for the things Golden Knights are loaded up front they've got a goalie they don't have a foundational defensive another Blue Line there's don't Roman he's one expert says one both these guys could have been available summer now one of them's off the market and you've got to pay for that so yes the term is frightening because like you said Brent seabrook cautionary tale right absolutely frightening term on this I will note that according to cap friendly the the contract is structured with all a bunch of signing bonus money in the first four years so all the way until twenty four when he'll be turning like thirty four right so that's just a little note little caveat no signing bonus money for the last four years and you know just there are ways to get around things but for the moment eight years over nine million dollars for one of the best defense in the League and the predators obviously if you look at the ages on that oster the next four years of very important
