"You think, Keynes and no brainer Because I'm I don't. I don't think he is, but I think I would lean to Yes. I think we named the three that are the no brainers. And from there there are solid discussions. You want a defenseman in here was Erik Karlsson. Generational. No. Was is I mean, look, I'm trying to think of a defenseman who was generational, right? That's right. I mean, now we're you know, we're getting to like the old Bobby Orr discussion. I don't know that I have a guy stronger. No, No, I don't have laws Keep going or is Lidstrom. Lidstrom. Yes, that's your best bet I think. Yeah, right. Lidstrom? Yes. Yeah, That's your best that good that long the best at what he did? Yes. No, Chelios, Um Bork. It would be the next guy would nominate no on board, huh? So Jesus, let's get some text on this other other names is pretty good Names coming Intense Hman, Obviously. Rasmus dulling, Um Boy. Who else? Jonathan quickly of defenseman recently have gone into the hall. I mean, I know that Al McInnis no, um, we're missing. I feel like we're missing some defenseman really badly. Nobody from Pittsburgh like now, am I going back to like coffee? Uh, he's not generational. No. Yeah, I don't know. But I think a defenseman is a harder discussion. Um, I love the Kaine discussion. That's really it. I'm really struggling with that one. I I I think he is, but I can't. Yeah, it's not a slam dunk. Uh, Here's a text. Zidane, Achara. No. Mm hmm. Club. I wouldn't take him over Lidstrom. No, I agree. Uh, I just wouldn't I mean generational. It was your really, really you're talking about again. How often does that guy come along? Only char was a freak show. Obviously, usually don't find six FT seven defenseman who are like him. All right. Ciara, huh? Let's go to goaltender. Harsh. Yes, Yeah, There's no question Hashtag Long Quist. No. No, because I mean, Mike Richter was a really good golly for the Rangers to his numbers hanging up in the rafters. No, it's not going to retire. Long question. Oh, for sure, he'll be retired. But that doesn't make you generational. Yeah. You know, you can be a great player of your number, retired and not be generational at your job, carry prices and no, no, he was drafted fifth. Overall, There's there's like that's almost like the Eichel conversation has carry price lived up to the billing. Of the fifth overall pick right. He's supposed to be Marc Andre Fleury was the first overall pick. Yeah, because Cary Price often has been the face of their franchise and had some great not lately but has had some phenomenal seasons. Yes, I think he's lived up to what the building was freedom. Yeah, I mean, he's Into the All Star game. He won the Hart Trophy. That's pretty good for a goaltender, and there have been years where they made the playoffs, chiefly because of Carey Price He's not once won the Vezina Mhm. You get drafted fifth overall. Best goalie, you know, blah, blah. No visit us. Has. You know, Mark Country floor is a tough one. There. Generational Goalies, um, Tajik and it's wok. Yeah, And I mean, does broad or get this treatment. I know right like that. I think I don't think so. Martin Brodeur cannot be generational, right? Don't think so. I don't. I mean, we're talking rarefied air at their position. And I know he's got I get it. He's got the cops and we got some defenseman being texted ahead. Scott Niedermayer, No. Alex Pietrangelo. No Scott Stevens. No. Brian Leetch. No, no, He's really, really good. But again, generational is a big step. It's a really lofty thing. You can be amazing and it's no like we said No. One. McKinnon. Yeah, And he's great. Amazing. We're talking like one of the best ever to play at your position makes you like Ovechkin obviously and Crosby, right? Those guys are generation. I think a texter has it right. It's one of the best in 20 years isn't a generation 20 years. Uh, Yeah, I guess that's about 30 tops. The idea is How long it takes you to have kids. Yeah, That's what I'm saying. 20 years 30. You can get to 30 have your first kid and that's the next generation some 30. I'm stretching 20 to 30 year window, then that's how good you have to be. No. And Lidstrom's in that window. Yeah, I think lynched him is the best out of everybody We named unless you're a fan of Ray Bork. Thanks for the text. I mean, I think it's a Good point to bring up. And I mean, look at the conversation. We got out of it. Yeah, I think the priority just making big contributions. That's why we That's why we get connected with our fans. That's right. I think that's what's going to hurt if Iculs traded right and we're closing, Let's say we're closing the chapter on the Sabres career, and I don't know what the future holds for him, but I think it be self. He's going to have a great career. What's going to hurt him? Yeah, is you're going to look at and go. Yeah. Okay. You can give me a stat line. 300. What is it 350 something points and 370 or 80 games. And all that libel Baba and they sucked for six years like, but that's not his fault. I mean, he you know if It just seems silly to to attach him to the team failure and say that reflects negatively on Eichel. I don't care about his stat line. I don't care about his hands, his speed his vision. I don't care about the fact when he started rushing up ice, you would move to the edge of your seat. If you're at the arena. I don't care about the T shirts would said, I'm just here to see Jack. I don't care about any of that stuff. Guys. His Sabres career will be linked forever with Failure. It's not his fault, and that shouldn't take away from a tank or him and what he did and how he's got. I'm speaking about him as it's in the past, already how he would be remembered as a Buffalo sabre. He's one of the most talented players. It's the most talented player they had in the drought, but he's one of the most talented players I've seen now. I haven't been here since day one. Okay..

"Talk Show Sports Byline USA. Here's Ron Bar. And boil joins us on sports byline defenseman, who played seventeen seasons in the National Hockey League with Florida Tampa Bay San Jose and the Rangers, and he has a place. In Nhl, history is one of four defense, mentally two different franchises in scoring and he won a Stanley Cup championship playing with the lightning, also, he won a gold medal for Canada, and the two thousand ten Olympic Games in Vancouver and you grew up in Ottawa and to an American baseball is certainly the national pastime, but Canadians. It's hockey. What is it about hockey? That makes it so special. God I don't know I mean I would I venture to say eight of ten boys probably get pushed on the ice as soon as they can see their father scam so. you know the weather has something to do with it? Obviously, it's cold for. For more months than than it is in some of the warmer states and You know you gotta find something to do outside and. With the with the frozen ranks in the frozen ponds, people you know like to to send their kids out to play hockey or skating I was just another Canadian boy that. was was on the ice all the time. He was a good friend of mine, and of course he hosted hockey night in Canada. We used to talk about it sometimes, and he said you really couldn't put your finger on it, but it's almost like the DNA in Canadians especially, the kids you read about that. And again it transfers from from you know from parents to the kids. You know you you grow up you. It's usually on TV you know back in on Saturday or whatever my dad and my mom would be watching TV so as a as a young child I'd do the same, and you just kind of fall in love with the sport, and and then you know it keeps going and going. Players growing up. I had to in particular I. Wear I wore twenty two. Because Rick talk it I was a Philadelphia flyers fan growing up and My favorite defenseman was Brian Leetch who is number two so Those two guys are probably the two two guys that I I like the most physicality of the game, a little bit like a football of course, but how does one develop that physicality from being a kid growing up into eventually playing in the National Hockey League? Yeah some guys. Some. Obviously, I was not a big body, so I had to work at it I had to get in the weight room and put in some extra time and try to strengthen my body because I wasn't going to be. Stronger bigger than most of the guys, so you guys have that natural gift whether born in there. They grew up to be six five and. And two thirty to forty, but I wasn't that so I spent a lot of time in the gym a lot of time in the weight room. And I think what helped me was was really my brain and I had to be a little bit smarter out there than than other guys and and Kinda know understand the situations when you're undersized player when you know. Where to go and how to get there, you were drafted out of Miami. University. Did that surprise. You weren't taken in the draft. It did not because it's well documented. I was I was kind of a an underdog. My whole life I was overlooked told early on that. I would never make it, so it was. Kind of ingrained, and whether it's right or wrong I, just kind of never expected to to make it even though you know I was always the top player on my team growing up i. just never really realistically thought that I had a chance because I was told that I wouldn't have a chance. Do you smile sometimes when you think back seventeen seasons playing professional hockey for somebody that they said couldn't play at that level Oh for sure I had a chip on my shoulder from day. One and I still haven't now even though I'm retired I I never gave up I never quit, and I believed in myself. Even even though others didn't and yeah I mean to every day. Every day was a bonus for me I wasn't expect to play one game. Let alone over a thousand, so it's It's an absolutely amazing story and I'm really proud. When people take a look at players, no matter what the sport might be because I've had my other friends that were in pro football. Say the same thing. I was either undrafted a draft late. What is it that they don't see the evaluation process? I am for me. The biggest thing was size I think the skill was there but size being back then you know the bigger players. was you know you, don't you don't see it as much anymore. The back then defenseman under six feet. They wouldn't even look at so you know in football. quarterbacks need to be a certain size, but you look at a guy like Russell Wilson. WHO's my favorite player in the NFL? He's Kinda. Guy Cheer for because he's an undersized. quarterback and he's obviously amazing things out there, so it was just it was just a size thing for me, and that's something that you can't change. You can't go in the in the gym. And work on that. You're only going to be as tall as As God wants it and You know that's the one thing I I couldn't. I couldn't change and that's the one thing that people thought. We're not allowed me to be NHL par. One of the things that I've known about any sport hockey. The wings have a certain mentality. That defenseman have certain mentality. The goalies have a certain mentality helped me out a little bit with a defenseman's mentality. The the Weirdo. They're the ones that are going in that the phase one hundred mile an hour shot, so they're usually not all all right.

"The Rangers in game six of the Eastern Conference finals and they do go on to win that series in seven we did have the step on my toe goal in a double overtime and then after that they did go on to defeat the Vancouver Canucks with the Rangers winning that Stanley Cup in nineteen ninety four coached by Mike Keenan and you had the group the core of mark Messier Hey Mike Richter and Brian Leetch some of the big names that do come to mind but yes that's right Massey said they were they guaranteed a victory he scored a hat trick and then all those years later back in two thousand and twelve amber the day of game six between the Rangers and the devils in New Jersey where eventually Adam Henrique ended up having the game winning goal in overtime as well I remember waking up and and I have a messy I at the time I was in high school had a messy a Jersey in my room autograph that was posted in tweets of the messy a Jersey with the guaranteed newspaper clippings as well hoping that history would repeat itself but as we know that was not the case Rangers would end up getting to a Stanley Cup final a few years later in two thousand and fourteen where they will lose to the kings and then their next best shot did come the year after that in twenty fifteen when they had a better team they had the president's trophy winner you had the first round I want to say that one in five games against the penguins then they came back against the capitals we had step on on Friday and step mom is talking about that game winning goals would be to come back from down three one if your member in game five and this one is actually crazy in that game five I was at Madison Square Garden and in game five of that series against the capitals you had Henrik long quest the building was dead because the range on the verge of elimination after winning the presidents trophy you had one question getting to the bench and that it was Chris Kreider who scored a goal as long because it's getting right to the bench to tie that up it goes into overtime and I want to say it was Ryan McDonagh with the blast to when it that did start to come back you had the crazy game six of the Rangers I want to say that they won going away maybe I don't own a game seven it would be that was different here so I'm gonna make my yours make stop getting game seven you had the staff on overtime winner and then they do go on to play Tampa where they did win game one had a brutal loss in game two couldn't score like a five on three power play I think they allowed a shorthanded goal actual eight on the five on three power play by want to say Tyler Johnson and then you got to a game seven trying to get back to the Stanley Cup final where who would they have played that year that one I don't remember who they have played Hickey do you know off the top of your head I know temple lost the cut that year who did they lose the cop to in twenty fifth gene that I can't remember what get out called black it was Chicago that's right so they lost to Chicago and or or dead the lighting did lose to Chicago but the Rangers in that game seven it was there was not a lot of scoring I want to say they ended up losing the game to nothing but that was a brutal brutal brutal and I mean a brutal game seven loss because on paper you have thought that the Rangers are going to the Cup final we get some redemption and find a way to win they don't have the kings back in that you had Chicago but you thought they would lose in a Cup finally got back the next year and when it but that was not the case the last time the Rangers did when the cop was because of the three to ninety four where mass do you get the hat trick in game six they go on to win game seven they beat the Canucks in ninety four and that was the last Rangers title since then all right anyway enough with the hockey talk pizza bore will join us coming up in a half hour from now the head coach of the Las Vegas golden knights did start the season as the head coach of the San Jose Sharks we'll chat a little box with the board coming up in thirty minutes but let me ask you this though trace are you what are you at all a fan of this onside kick alternative where we'd be now well fourteen fifteen and you would get it twice in a game where you could wind up let's say you you scored a touchdown are you want to get the ball back you lined up for ten fifteen at your own twenty five you get one shot to complete your fan that I'm all in I think this is a win win for everyone it's safer for the league it's more exciting for the fans and all of a sudden these games get closer and there are the finches get more exciting I'm all in on this new rule if it's obviously voted through yeah and and I'm with you I think it's more exciting and just because it's more exciting doesn't mean that it's the better alternative but in this case though with how the onside kick kids with no more running start you can't overload one side it's been a a point now where let's say for five six years ago yeah you don't have a great chance to get the onside kick it's not supposed to be easy at least there was that glimmer of hope where you can sit back and say oh okay we have a shot down the score to get the onside kick now with the safety precautions and the rule changes even though you did have that game with the saints and the falcons this year I want to say it was thanksgiving or or close to thanksgiving where did seem as if every onside kick was getting recovered for the most part though now you go into an onside kick and and you don't feel like you have a shot to recover the chances now or more minuscule than ever I was reading today though traces on pro football talk and I don't think about this because the first thing I thought of when discussing this rule was how you don't plan on more Ford how you don't want to see the penalties then become such a big factor where people are **** and complaining on incidental or minor contact and how it should have been called to making that a whole disaster we have to see more dean Blandino Mikey bees Geyer Mike Pereira or or whoever it is I want to see less TV less TV from our referees I prefer more you know when you have a play like that if there's little minor contact you're going to get a lot of it discussed and debated now how will that be officiated if someone is getting mugged on a fourteen fifteen or they got a call it then you have a situation room sometimes they sneeze on it official decides to throw was wide so I don't want to see a penalty decide that played out that's agree just brought the call like a normal play and then you can eat you can maybe even get a roughing the passer as well so there's some penalties that you just wonder how the officials are going to call it that was my first thought originally though the way that this rule was being talked about though and this is not true is that you could only use it if you're down in the game and we talked about a little bit last week Powell we didn't want to see that happen because maybe you do get a team that that ties it up or has a lead in and they don't trust their defense and there's about a minute left they they really love their quarterback and as crazy as this sounds and I don't think it would happen in most cases but if you decide you know what we'll trust patch bombs on fourteen fifteen and a tie game to get the ball back instead of kicking off the football and then flying for overtime and having the game go out even longer and things like that for the most part though if you're tied I would imagine though that you're gonna kick off the football entrust your defense but you never know we see things like fourteen two yeah I know it's a difference of two yards to fifteen yards my pets please your call strays and Kevin fall came up just I hear short of a first down but my new understanding of this role in pro football talk reiterated this today is that you don't have to be down in the game to implement this fourteen fifteen conversion you just have to tell the officials and they notify the other team and away you go you can only use this twice in a game so there was this thought that let's say if you have a team that scores with five seconds left or six seconds left and let's say they take a twenty four to twenty three lead if they haven't used their two fourteen fifteen conversions on what would be the new onsite tech they're not quarterback would maybe just take the ball and the clock it's it's running on this play you drop back for for five seconds and then just throw sixty yard bomb at out of bounds and then the game is over and you don't get the ball back is that a part of the world that you don't like how I may be unintended consequence of it is if the team does take the lead then they're gonna use it that way with maybe less than ten seconds or so to go and you got to make sure that clock at zero because then if you don't the other teams taking over at you're a twenty five yard line they could just go kick a game winner when the game but if that's the situation that does present itself trace is that part of the role that you would not like I don't it's not it's not a big enough to turn for me to complete just over the ruling just kick the onside kick because our if you're if it's five seconds you're down by seven can kick them like they're doing a Miami miracle right or or one percent of one percent to six city miracle yeah it's it's not good so you know the shares writers like you know it's a big or you know a legitimate chance at all that you got taken away just you know a miracle is taken away let's say so I have no problem personally we know if that's gonna be one of the unintended consequences or one of the I guess only negatives of that new rules that sure the last five seconds teams can really take advantage for their own they're winning and not give the team your team a chance to go ahead and get one more shot fine so be it for me at least the positives outweigh the negatives of such I would still push for it but what about what about you what are your thoughts now I'm I'm with you too I don't think there's an alternative where you could say the game can't and on on that play I I don't think you're going to create that I really do think it depends though which coach is the first one to use it to your advantage his prescribing you see a Bella check in maybe one of the seven or eight patriot wins this year they scored a late touchdown in five seconds left the estate him throw the ball if you can't fifty yards out of bounds people be free get out if that is what say I don't know Andy Reid R. or hardball people say that it's good coaching if it's spell check then people are saying that he's going to be using the rules to his advantage is similar to what happened with what he did against the jets with the declining of the penalties and all that we took the game clock off and then it came back to bite him in the you know what yeah you exposing that deficiency or or the flaw in the rule book when my credible they did on the other side but you know I say that in just a little bit and have a little fun with that I don't think I agree think that's a perfect word it's not a deterrent to me and why this rule should no longer happen I happen to like the rule and I'll just be I'll be really curious to see the success rate of it and and how even the big name quarterbacks in the guys you think no doubt can convert like a home to the third and fifteen I'm in the Superbowl to Tyreek hill would be put in that situation I would like to see how much better the success rate is in your number one compared to what the onside kick great is from this past season will break here though it is exact yep show on CBS sports radio me come on back.

What is it that they don't see the evaluation process? Yeah I am for meeting. The biggest thing was size. I think the skill was there but sized being back then you know the bigger players. was you know you don't you don't see it as much anymore but back then defenseman under six feet they wouldn't even look at so so you know in football quarterback need to be a certain size but you look at a guy like Russell Wilson is my favorite player in the NFL. He's the Kinda Guy Cheer for because he's undersized quarterback and doing obviously amazing things out there so it was just it was just a size thing for me and that's something that you can't change. You can't go in the in the gym and work on that. You're you're only going to be as tall as as God wants it and you know that's the one thing I I couldn't I couldn't change and that's the one thing that people fought. We're not allowed me to be an HR and one of the things that I've known about any sport hockey. The wings have a certain mentality that defenseman have a certain mentality to have a certain mentality helped me out a little bit with the defense mentality of the weirdoes. They're the ones that you know going in that two phase one hundred on our shot so they're usually not all all right upstairs. I think demand. Are you know identical. I think the it's changed over the last twenty years defense in back then were a little bit more your tougher guys or slower guys bigger guys but it's changed now to where he got a little bit more more mobility in the back end so I would say that the the goalies are definitely different different birds but the fords defensemen are are usually more same. You finally got your chance with the Florida panthers a couple of years in the minors and then you come up as well being guy from Canada and now how playing hockey down in south Florida was kind of a a strange situation for you. I mean how the hockey fans in South Florida react to the sport yeah. It was you know what they I came in. The Florida Panthers made it to the Stanley Cup finals a year or two before I got there so hockey was kind of a big thing they were in Miami and they had just moved to where they are today which is sunrise so that was Kinda new but no hockey was kind of a big deal especially the team has had been doing well so again for me. I was happy to be up. I didn't care where I played. I was just so thrilled and it is a great quality of life you know and you can go to the ranking in the middle of December and driving in the sun and you know maybe go play golf on a day off it was it was a pretty amazing way to live yeah. You're not shoveling snow out of the walkway. Are you know in two thousand two you were dealt to the Tampa Bay lightning lightning and in two thousand and four lifted the Stanley Cup championship with the lightning for the first time the cup and I just wonder how you look back on that period of time with Tampa Bay because it was upsetting the way it ended but tell me a little bit about the team that won the Stanley Cup Championship in your time there yeah very similar my personal personal story. I think the team had some undrafted you know Marty Saint Louis being the other one in particular. you know there was there's a Lotta under guys at weren't expected to be there and we were a team that wasn't expected to win and we Kinda all came together very much like my story and then kind of an underdog team and another dog city and we all came together in the right place at the right time guys found their way on that team from different in scenarios and it was a short I mean by the time from the time I got there went from a non playoff team to you know a playoff team to Stanley Cup winner within you you know two years so it was a it was quick and that doesn't happen very often but it's a it's a credit to to the management that you know went out and found some of these players I in different situations and put up. Put the team together. NCNB gypsies is there's always kind of crossroads. What was it for the Tampa Bay team? UH I don't. I don't know it was just it was like the stars align. We made the playoffs the year again after I got out there for the first time in forever we lost early and we kinda learn from that so I think that loss was you know maybe a crossroads. I don't know if you WANNA call it that I put it was just kinda showed us what what it would take to win and then we went on to win the following season so it was a it was a quick lesson but it was a good one. GB chips really do seen an awful lot to players no matter what the sport is because I've heard a lot of my friends say you know I would give up all the numbers if I could get a championship. Tell me a little bit it in your particular case what that meant to you because after what you told me about how you had to always fight to get anything I would assume that that meaning was probably a little bit deeper interview. Oh one hundred percent I for sure I'd I'd give up all my goals an assist for another for another chance at a Stanley Cup. I statistics you know we're never ever important to me. I never had a you know I never had a milestone. I never set you know. Sometimes they say to set goals. I never had goals as far as actual goals and assists are concerned it was it was always about winning for me and I'd be willing to you know take all my personal points in for another chance at the championship. That was my number one goal the only goal I had going in every season. I know that the players get a day to have the cup in their presence and and to do with whatever they become too much. They really warn you. They say don't they say simplify. Don't Overdo it because other guys have done in in the past and and sure sure sure enough. I overdid it. I did way too much ended up getting a day and a half. I got the night before and I told my wife that I just wanted my my my friends. My buddies just kind of guys I grew up with and not kind of. Have you know other people around. She understood that it was just kind of one of those things for me so we kinda went out a little too late and a little too much and then the next day was was more family oriented friends. You know where I grew up. we raise some money throughout the day three separate occasions so you try to give back to the community a little bit and we did that but it was a it was a long day after the night before and you know it was it was amazing I wouldn't I wouldn't change it but it was definitely a it was all there's a lot of stuff going on.

"We have dominated game to where they could have lost that been down to nothing magical that what it changed the series kidding. Not goal wasn't critical. But now the confidence is with the avalanche in their top. Guys are playing calories top guys. But Nathan MacKinnon is so next level at this moment and being Pepsi center to see it. I don't know who's better than him on the planet at this moment. He's that good that powerful. He's completely dialed in focused on his game in with that ability. Make everybody else on your team raise their level as well. As the beginning is blowing my mind, and everybody's mind. And while he's playing right now. You mentioned that you don't know anyone right now in these playoffs who's playing as well as Nathan MacKinnon, if you think back to your years of covering the Avs playing all that kind of stuff the the mission that this guy is on have you ever seen anything like it either as a player or as an analyst? Oh, of course, I've seen Joe Sakic was this good. So as Peter Forsberg so Patrick wa Brian Leetch of the New York Rangers back in the day. But all the players up mentioning they're all either one con might Stanley Cups over right there beside them. So, you know, can you keep it going can you maintain it? That's his next almost his last challenge because he's so dynamic out there that at a minimum. He's gonna draw probably three penalties a game because defenseman just cannot handle him wide or somebody who's going to hook him. So he's putting his play is up there with a great game. And if he can continue it the team is just going to be really difficult to stop because group our is looking phenomenal net and as long as he struggled the back end. Anything is possible right now anything. Mark ryshkov. Joining us here on drive time sports. You mentioned the penalties. Obviously, some chippiness Matthew could shock, of course. Sam Bennett as well. Do you expect the Avs too? Do any sort of retaliation move towards the flames early in this game. Or or do you not kind of see that kind of stuff in the playoffs? Yet. Nothing's gonna happen. There's there's only one type of retaliation. That's going to happen tonight. And that's called feeling the net. Team home down three to one. That's all you need. Now. This game gets out of hand. Again. Of course, there's going to be some shipping of stuff at the end of the game. I don't know for in for another four five gold blowed or this one's going to be tighter Calgary's been spending. A lot of time watching Bill figuring out ways to shutdown McKinnon probably going to be tighter game. However, if it gets out again, then. Yeah. The end of the game there's gonna be some fisticuffs. No doubt. It's the playoffs. It the best calories. Got a young Tiki. Chippy.

"Now, you're starting to get other guys that aren't on the top line producing for you. So I think that's going to be big for the avalanche. I've I have a sneaking suspicion the avalanche. You're going to still make the playoffs and maybe a pain in the neck in that Western Conference. Forever t h s was able to listen to your call of the third and overtime game. First time hearing you call a game. I enjoyed it. Question is in your opinion. Who was the best ranger player in history. Will thank you for the compliment to me the best player Rangers history. Is also I believe is the greatest American born player, and that might change now with the the way that the the Vander Kane has played and certainly some other American born players as of right now certainly full castle to me the most all around complete of ranger was Brian Leetch. I think Brian Leetch was really really special and playing a position that is very very difficult to play. So I would say Brian Leetch is the greatest ranger and as of right now, I think the greatest American born players. Well, AJ man says can you please explain why there wasn't a penalty on the overtime goal of the Rangers game. Also, the Rangers played with some aggressiveness. Kept it close. Is this how you beat Tampa and the plows? Absolutely. I think a little snarl is a way to kind of keep the Tampa within reach because they really don't have that feistiness. They got big players and they play physical. But I don't think they've got that that nastiness down just Jeb. They got a ton of experience. So may not matter, but AJ, I think you are into something. And as I mentioned before I think. Office following through with a check. David Quinn said afterwards. It wasn't a penalty. I really don't know where he could even go after he released the puck. I think it was more of a collision than anything else. So I can't get crazy about that non coal Michael says, the penguins move forego Branson is getting torn up by fans and analysts. What do you think about him? And what do you think? Again, change of scenery would probably be good. We know what brands that could bring to the table. So I I would trust the power brokers there in Pittsburgh that they can maybe tap into something. I understand it his history as recent history hasn't been great. But there is something there. And if there's an organization that can tap into it. I do think it is probably the Pittsburgh Penguins. Right. Lotta fun as usual. I can't wait for tomorrow. Because I think it's going to be fascinating to see not just what transpires is far as how the fans treats onto various before the game. But more importantly, how the islanders respond to that. Because they need the two points. They need desperately specially with the cat. Capitals and Alexander Ovechkin you know waiting in the wings to play at the Coliseum tomorrow. So a couple of days here for the islanders and that can't be lost recap the games love our weekly top five as well tomorrow. So looking forward to hearing from you, then you want to get in touch with me the best way to do it at a hashtag game is conduct. This was the Thursday edition of game..

"I'm Ray Sager and get my producer Monica ballot here. And we're talking about the main thing it felt like a good topic for the first show. Absolutely. The main thing, and we've got we've really do have a thousand man and woman army at our disposal of forward thinking business owners marketing consultants who we work with media professionals who we deal with on a day-to-day basis all across the US and Canada, and really I could roll in Europe and Australia in a pinch. And I think. Have to get like a Craig Arthur from Australian just for the Australian accent at some point it's astounding to listen to, but the main thing so what we've already heard from some great people chipping in the main thing can include having a story to tell it can include the discipline to create that content. It can include facilitating community. There's a lot of main things. And I think what's great is. When you get each different person in throwing their spin on right? Then you've that's where the magic happens for sure we invite you to follow along always man brand radio dot com. We've got a ton of resources there that flow from the things that we lean on in our day to day working with business owners. And then, you know, also all of the audio and video archives of the show. You can find there as well now. So let's dive back into it. Who do we have next? We've got Brian Leetch. Service legends Des Moines, I s O'Brien is one of my favorite CEOs in North America. He runs a heating and cooling company there in Des Moines. A Brian is the guy who I turned me onto report leadership international, which has been a huge training component. If I know Brian his main thing, I bet it's going to have something to do with people. Let's go ahead go and get him teed up online, and oh probably do have a disclaimer or a disclosure upfront in full disclosure, I've had the privilege to work with Brian a good many years. We're talking about the main thing, which is obviously a different thing to different people. And I figured if I asked six or eight of my favorite people around to bring a different perspective by the end of the show. We'd have an awful lot of goodness. So Brian you tell me man in your day to day. What's the main thing? Well, over the years and most recent years, the main thing has been the journey of my own heart and my own development as a leader over time letting go of my profound desire to control everything and build people that are better than me. I surround myself with people that are better than me. That's really been the theme of the main thing for me for a while. I know one of the things that you're really focused on. I don't know if it's a main thing, but you're kind of talking about your people and your team, and I know that a marathon with no finish line almost for you has been recruiting, you know, so coaching them up. That's great. How do you find the people, and how do you tell me how you work on that part of it of finding the right people and then coaching them up. Well, finding the right people you really process. We we screwed that up enough to to really start to drill down and get some create some success through failure over time. But the reality of it was we must have the first step for us was to be very very clear on our identity as an organization, our culture until we are, and then get very strategic about identifying people that match that for the longest time. I was a sucker for rescues and restoration of people and an incredibly optimistic. That I could help anyone go to the level of changing, your belief systems and their values and things like that. That was a continual. Uphill battle hundred percent had to do with my story because as my values changed, and my belief systems changed and the victories at I I wanted that other people. What I what I learned in. That was ultimately that when the student is ready is is when the teacher will arrive, and I was going after students that weren't ready. And so over time we got there disciplined in getting real clear on who we were what are our values and interviewing first and foremost values and common belief systems around the things that really really mattered in our business.

I e get fish in the boat, get the employees on boarded and working their way through an interviewing process. I guess the able to build a sophisticated enough interview process that affirmed the values were in alignment, and then then, you know, the really the next step was the really the genius component. That was introduced to me that go after people that have proven competencies, and you know, so really came down to an investigation of their career history and their life in high school and how they grew up and what they were exposed to the mistakes were so important because what I was looking for and not is the ability to overcome them to persevere through them over time, the most valuable valuable aspect of identifying a players that matched. Our culture was listening to their story and probing deeply into their story. I'm looking for. The victories in it. And looking for the the failures, and overcoming those particular failures? Person with a proven track record. It's not we're not betting on a horse tend to one odds at that point where you know, we're betting on the two to one at worst case scenario, you know, so what I'm hearing you say, it's almost like the main thing is a one two punch. Right. It's finding a player's. Okay. And then leading them coaching them up. So I love the little peek behind the curtain on how you guys find the right people, and how you interview them. But once they're on board K once they're on the team. How do you coach them up? How do you actually lead them? What you give us some pro tips from like, I said, not the wax your car.

We really understand their story in who those people are in in, you know, in the first ninety days, we give them a dissertation on strengths and weaknesses. And and and it's just loaded his candor. Hey, you know, here's some areas few development. Here's the streets. But I know we're going to bring value to the team. And then we put that on them. It's their responsibility. Put together a professional development plan, a one page two page document on what their development plan is what their goals are where do they want to be that type of stuff how they're going to get there, which we can then provide coaching into instead of me telling them, here's what you're going to do in. How you're going to be successful. We put some responsibility on their shoulders to think deeper, you know, to think is to create you know, I come over the years. I've learned that standing on a podium and delivering a good sermon is not necessarily going to transform someone into success. But we may think deeply about who they are where they're going what they wanna be and how they want to do it. There's a lot more traction and their development without ownership in it. So, of course, we're providing coaching and training, and and and. Starting right out of the gates their belief system. Interrogating what their belief system is around buying patterns of consumers and behavioral and those type of things and what they think should happen in our industry. And then we teach and we were to close the gap.

And I think. I'll have to get like a Craig Arthur from Australia on just for the Australian accent at some point. It's it's astounding to listen to, but the main thing so what we've already heard from some great people chip in in the main thing can include having a story to tell it can include the discipline to create that content. It can include facilitating community. There's a lot of main things. And I think what's great is. When you get each different person in throwing their spin on right?

I think that's really been theme of the main thing for me for a while. Ben, I know one of the things that you're really focused on. I don't know if it's a main thing, but you're kind of talking about your people and your team, and I know that a marathon with no finish line almost for you has been recruiting, you know, so coaching them up.
