"You know that I have had a very different opening segment planned. About midnight last night. And such as the world that I live in that breaking news happens and things evolved in change. So here's now what I got for you. The way this goaltender market was moving this morning, I I thought that optimism was warranted when it came to Philipp Grubauer. Seven of the top 10 pending, um, phase and you can rank them in any way, but I think that we're pretty solidly on a list of 10. They were off the board within an hour of free agency opening. One of them was Chris Draeger, who went to Seattle, which I thought Solved. Seattle's goaltender question. I thought they were choosing him over carry price. How silly I was to think that But he goes off the he goes off the board a week or so ago, and then you get a slew of the guys. That gets snatched up within the first couple hours of free agency and then you throw in Marc Andre Fleury, who was traded to the Blackhawks. Because when goaltenders go off the board So do teams that need goaltenders. But clearly Waiting underneath. The surface of the water. ABS are sitting on their their avalanche ship. They're riding the ship. They signed Gabriel Landeskog. They locked up Kale MacArthur. They're ready for free agency. And there was Just like this little bump. Underneath the ship, and Joe Sacco, who was like what was that? And then all of a sudden a giant tentacle reached out of the water came down and snatch Philipp grubauer away. That was the cracking. And that crack in his name is Ron Francis. And as an avalanche fan, I hate him with every fiber of my being. I, You know, I thought after and you know how much I looked at Seattle's expansion draft. I was like Them. This is the group. You have the same system in place. That Vegas had That allowed them to immediately build a Stanley Cup contender and You don't use it. You just didn't He didn't use it. Numerous best players available from the team passed on him. Carey Price, most notably a goaltender, a franchise goaltender guy that just carried a team to a Stanley Cup. On the board didn't take him. Took Chris Draeger instead. Okay? No. Chris triggers nice. But he has yet to prove he's a franchise goaltender. What should have tipped me off that Chris trigger was not the ultimate answer and goal. But when we're on, Francis went through this expansion draft I was like this is the team. And I thought he was sandbagging it because I don't know if you're aware 2022 is a loaded draft at the top. There are three franchise immediate will not in media because there's a little bit it takes them a little while to get But three for sure franchise face of the franchise type guys at the top of next year's draft. So I thought, Well, this is why he's sandbag because clearly he understands. That the team he built is not a playoff team. Even in a week. Pacific Division. They're not a playoff team. So I thought it was well, he's going to build this out. The normal expansion franchise way. Lots of draft picks. Affordable, controllable players. He has Dave Hack stole, who's known as a developmental guy, you know, coming from the college level. I thought, Okay, This is the way he's building it, Not the way that I would choose, but you know I submitted my resume on monster dot com and I I don't think that Seattle reddit So they chose Ron Francis and Ron Francis has made his name as a draft and develop organically grow the franchise type of guy from his time in Carolina, So okay. To each his own. You, do you Oh, but he was sandbagging for a different reason. He was sandbagging because he wanted cap space. So once he's been able to utilize, said Cap space. Makes not one, not two, but three. Premier free agent signings. He grabbed, uh, cc legend. Jaden Schwartz. He signed Winberg. And then, of course, he grabbed Philipp Grubauer. And now I am ready to amend that my prediction that the Seattle crack and will not make the postseason because they absolutely are going to now. No, they're not. I don't. I still don't think they're the level of Vegas. The level that they were when they first started. But there are much better team. In the Five hours since free agency opened, then they were after the expansion draft. But that's the cracking so good on them for swooping in What I hope with this Philipp grubauer thing. I hope this wasn't about the land of Scott Deal. I hope that the Landeskog deal did not keep them from signing group. Our That is what could not under any circumstances happen. You could not sacrifice goaltending for winger, especially in this market. You lose Gabriel Landeskog. You can go out and get Jane and Schwartz. You could trade for Vladimir Tarasenko, although I don't know that ST Louis would be willing to part with them. Suffice to say there are more options. For the Colorado Avalanche to at least Replace Gabriel Landeskog s production. I am happy that Gabriel Landeskog is back with the Colorado Avalanche. I think that he is an elite player, and I think that he brings a lot of stuff that the Avalanche need. And need more of to be quite frank with you. But faced with the Sophie's choice Of Landeskog or Grubauer ice maintain the entire time. That group hours should be the priority. The guy's a Vezina Trophy finalists he signed for less than $6 million a year. Do not tell me That it was the value per year..

"To the Harlem Globetrotters. I'll have more to give away as the week progresses. But thanks to all of you who Entered in. Keep the number handy. You will need it later in the week. Now, let's go to the Play Mavericks sports APP line to get your thoughts on today's topics in the last, uh seven minutes or so that we have Most of you want to talk about the Broncos, So let me get to the Non Broncos text first, and then we'll get to the Broncos tax. Ryan says, If we have to over pay for Landy, a group our at this point I take grew and let Landy walk. Have been that way since day one. I don't want to lose any of them. Right, because the ABS need to stay together and then get better. Right, keep everyone together and then add to it. So I would make that same choice if if Joe Sakic is presented with Goalie. Getting ready to walk or a winger and I know he's the captain. I don't want to try to minimize what Gabriel Landeskog has meant to this organization. Grubauer to me. Apples to apples. Is more important to the success of the Colorado Avalanche this upcoming year, then Gabriel and Scott Not by a lot. But he is And part of it is because there's just not that many options out there. Chris Draeger was taken by The cracking. Um, I carry price isn't going to go anywhere now that Seattle didn't take him. They're just not that many options out there. And the ABS can ill afford to be trying to do some patchwork stuff in goal. It's not going to work for him. So I agree with you completely. Ryan if you're faced with those two By all means. Try to sign them both. But if you can't Gotta go Grubauer. All right. Couple attacks on USA Basketball from the 79 Hey Kaufman, as the French would say NBA guys don't care about the Olympics. They would have to conduct themselves with the minimal amount of class. I'm not gonna Pile on in that way. Um, not saying your wrong. I'm just saying that's not attack that I'm I'm taking today. But it's like the point that JP brought up or what I brought up when I was talking to J P If they feel it's an obligation. The Olympics should not be an obligation that's an insane thing. To say that it's almost oxymoronic. It's not supposed to be an obligation. You're not supposed to do it because you're afraid that people on Twitter are going to smack talk you If that's the position that these NBA players are in, then USA Basketball should do them a favor and say, You know what? We're going to go the international model. We're going to get a group of guys together, whether it's you know, 6789 guys. And they're going to do all of these tournaments. Going to play together. They're going to get a reporter. They're going to be able to be cohesive. And then will solicit a couple of spots for NBA players. And go that route. I mean, that's that's worse. That's so much worse. Then. USA losing Like I know that we are Star spangled awesome in this country of ours. I love this country. I love American exceptionalism and and I want to lay waste to every other country at the Olympics. But If you told.

Also you get the Red Sox beating blue J. 7 to 4 Yankees escape the Philly 65 and 10 raise walked it off on the Orioles 54. That was in Austin Meadows, two run single when we're floors at a big two run shot during a three run ninth as the Giants double the Dodgers for two Indians clip, the Astros 54 twins raised the White Sox 52. And then we found out your mean Mercedes decided to retire. He took to Instagram to post he's walking away from baseball indefinitely under a caption. It's over. Mercedes began his career eight for a clash with Tony LaRussa. Remember that swinging 233 Oh pitch and the position player in a blowout. He apologized for quote, not accepting some of their decisions called himself a mature as well. One of the note to give to settle cracking. They had their expansion draft the NHL Callie yarn Crow of the Predators. He was selected first. They also grabbed out under forward Jordan Eberle, Ian Panthers goalie. Chris Draeger. Yeah. All right. Thank you. Marco. Let's play that clip of Tom Brady with Jim Gray, discussing how he still held it as a motivation that there were a couple of teams that were not interested in his services. Do you care to Exposed to it was talking about because there's private things for me that are going to remain, uh, you know, motivational for me, so they know who they are. And then that the team you think they know? Yeah, that teams know who who were probably interested and Um Yeah. I mean, it's fine. I mean, everyone's got a choice to choose. You know, I think what you realize is that there's not as many smart people as you think. You know, it's just the reality. I think it's some. It would be a no brainer if you said, you know. Hey, You got a chance to get Wayne Gretzky on your team. Or you get a chance of Michael Jordan on your team out. We don't need them, you know? No, thanks. We're good. You know my mind. I'm kind of thing. Okay, Well, let me go. Let me go show. Those teams what they're missing and at the same time, let me go proved to the team that did bet on me and the team that really show that they really wanted me and committed to me so You know Tom Brady's not wrong there. I think at that time when Brady was available, he didn't feel like Michael Jordan. He didn't feel like Wayne Gretzky. Maybe Michael Jordan on the Wizards. Maybe Wayne Gretzky on the Rangers. But There were times I would I would imagine. I'm not sure. But in 2000 when Jordan wants to come back, he comes back with the Wizards. Does every team in the NBA want a 39 year old Michael Jordan? In the last two seasons of Wayne Gretzky's career. Did everybody want Wayne Gretzky? The answer is no. So he's not wrong because he is in that conversation. You know the greatest athletes of all time of their sport. Tom Brady is going to be in the conversation the same way Michael Jordan is the king of the NFL in Wayne Gretzky was will always be the king of the NHL. Brady is a little different because he's more specialized than those guys. Those guys the greatest overall player, not just the greatest at their position. That's the greatest overall player in the NBA and NHL. You would not say that about Tom Brady. Not in my estimation, but Again. Brady's in the conversation as one of the great football players of all time, and he is the greatest quarterback of all time. So he's not wrong and saying in his mind Hey, man of Wayne Gretzky is available. Don't you want Michael Jordan is available. Don't you want him? Again. The issue, though, is that the time that he was available We didn't know He had this left in him. He felt like he did. I don't think football universe at large Din, So it's it's a little disingenuous. But this is obviously what Tom Brady thinks how he thinks and insight into why he is great. He has forever play the Aw shucks card. I'm just trying to win football games. I'm just trying to do what's right for the team. All that. Patriots down the middle. Don't say anything type of tact. And here he is. Comparing himself to Michael Jordan and Wayne Gretzky. He understands his greatness. He understands his position historically, and so every time from here on out that he says he doesn't and I don't think about that. I don't compare myself to others. That's for other people to say. That's a lie. He he absolutely does. He's absolutely aware of that. And again, this is what is driving him now to be in the pantheon of greatest athletes of all time. And it is what makes him not. Stay stagnant at 42 43 years old to want to keep playing and keep competing and keep winning comes from comparing yourself not against Patrick Mahomes or Aaron Rodgers or Jimmy Garoppolo. Now it comes. You compare yourself to Muhammad Ali and Wayne Gretzky and Babe Ruth and Michael Jordan. And that's that's when you start. Digging into a different part of your motivation, because you can't just say Well, I want to. You know, I want to prove people wrong. Well, you've been doing that for 20 years now you've proved everybody wrong. Don't worry. You were six round graphic that works for the first five years. But what happens after you win three Super Bowls? These are the motivations you get to When we come back, we've got your advanced analytics and your epic fail.

Cardinals outlast the Cubs three to intend Yadier Molina, your game winning R B. I double there, and the Rays walked it off on the Orioles. 54 was Curtis Stephen Austin Meadows two run single. Meanwhile, you're mean Mercedes took baseball by storm thanks to eight hits in his first eight at bats that broken all time record. He did have his issues with manager Tony LaRussa, Of course, not following some of the unwritten baseball rules you remember swinging at a three Oh pitch against a position player in a blowout. I think it was 15 4 at the time if memory serves, and he blasted along solo shot, he was sent back to the minors. Later in the season, he was record. Now he's decided to retire. Wow, Mercedes with an instagram post. He apologized for what he called quote, failing as a human being and not accepting some of their decisions. I'm stepping aside from baseball, indefinite, loud unquote now. Don't know what you did unclear. Obviously, what Mercedes, referring to We know about the issues with Tony LaRussa. We don't know everything that happened in that clubhouse by any stretch. He did write this under a caption. It's over. So you're talking about a 28 year old who toiled in the minors for you know, I had to look it up. I don't know how long 20 years old for a while he comes up takes the world by store He was actually hitting. It's not like his numbers weren't awful. They did tail off a bit from the hot start. But now all of a sudden to go from that to retirement in July for first place team. It's a strange, strange story. Yeah, really, really bizarre. You're right. And he was remember. He had the support two of his teammates for the way that he was playing with pizazz. And even though LaRussa reprimanded him His teammates were supporting him. So it's very bizarre that suddenly something is so unfair and baseball that is just flat out quitting. Yeah, and again, I mean, little cryptic, like Not accepting some of their decisions. Seems like a you know, kind of a poke at LaRussa. But the idea of he kind of put it on himself to with a couple of things, but failing as a human being. I mean, Honestly, when I read that I'm concerned about Mercedes right now, not just the you know, clashing of personalities. It's almost like, you know, Can we get some help for him? Is he going through something that obviously we hope is okay. But That was a little sad reading this and hopefully it's just one of those things where you're going through a rough time and you can get yourself back on track. And he can come back because 28 years old early to be walking away from the game, So let's hope everything works out with Mercedes and the White Sox or another team down the road. A couple other notes for you real quick Seattle crack and had their expansion draft. You got Callie Yarn Crow of the Predators. Selected first. They also grabbed Islanders forward Jordan Eberly Panthers goalie Chris Draeger apparently is going to be a net for them and sad news with two time national champion coach Bobby Bowden, 91 year old announced he's been diagnosed with a terminal medical condition.

"Night reported that Chris Draeger. Depending free agent goalie for the Florida Panthers is going to sign with Seattle that will be Seattle's selection from the Panthers, and they will be able to reach An agreement with him. At just over three. I think it's $3.3 million per year over three years. Believe I have that right? Florida is going to be Chris Draeger. So that complicates things because now it's well Do they look at Driggers and say that he's Going to be there, starting goalie It's like, Whoa, that's way too much to pay. You're going to pay Draeger 3.5. Million 3.3 million. Whatever and then you're going to absorb carry prices salary. That's too much to spend on goaltending. I don't buy it. I still think that carry price. Being the face of the Seattle franchise. Makes all the sense in the world. And let's not forget that Carey Price may not be healthy for Game one. He may not be. Might go under the knife this offseason. And he may not be back till midway through the season. But He's going to be back at some point. And he may not need to need surgery That's still up in the air. That's what Carey Price has spent. The last few days in New York doing is undergoing medical evaluation to see if there's anything that he needs to Get operated on But if he's given a clean bill of health or even if what is like Some kind of scoping or something like that. Where The recovery is going to be You can count on it, and it's not going to take him a ton of time to recover and all this kind of stuff. I still think that Carey price because Seattle has got to be thinking about who to make the face of the franchise. You know? We talk about it all the time, And sometimes it seems like it's an overrated thing. To talk about the face of the franchise. Who cares who the face of the franchise is? I think when you're trying to get off on the right foot as an expansion team, I think it matters. Think it mattered to Vegas. Marc Andre Fleury. Was perhaps the biggest name available to them. And they chose him to be not only their starting goalie but the face of their franchise. Seattle needs one. This is this is why they're negotiating with Gabriel Landeskog. The reports are they are doing it. It's not like they ABS exposed. Gabriel Landeskog in Seattle didn't decided to pick up the phone. At some point over the last three days, Ron Francis and Gabriel Landeskog representatives chatted. He could be. The face of Seattle. But I don't think he wants to go there. Don't think just because they signed Chris trigger. Who certainly becomes You know a We don't sign Philipp Grubauer. Then who are we going to get? Option for the Colorado Avalanche. Cause he was certainly on that list. I still think he makes all the sense that I'm not going to say. I'm not going to guarantee that he becomes a member of the Seattle cracking, but It just makes too much sense to not happen. And the other part of this, too. Carey Price had no movement clauses. The same thing that Eric Johnson waved. Carey Price waved Was Cary Price trying to do the Canadians are solid. Was it to protect Jake Allen? He's goalie. It's a little bit different with Eric Johnson because you look at the situation if they have to. If Eric Johnson takes up one of their protected spots automatically because he has no movement clauses. Now, either Girard my car or tabs are exposed. Eric Johnson waived his no movement clause as a favor. To the ABS. I think to an extent. To try and ensure At the good, talented defenseman that they have remain on the team, one of which Eric Johnson Will be paired up with Next season. Now, if you're going to waive your no movement clauses in your Eric Johnson, then you have to be somewhat okay with the potential that Seattle takes you. But I think Eric behind the Eric Johnson move was more about. Hey, this is a deke or that I want to be a part of and I want to try to keep it intact. The best that I can, so I'll waive the no movement clause. I make a lot of money. I'm not going to be the most attractive target for Seattle, like these kind of conversations happen internally. Carey Price is a goalie. The only person That can very protected. If carry prices exposed is Jake Allen. So it's not about any other player on Montreal's roster. Always that really carry prices. Motivation here. To waive his no movement clause. His wife is from Seattle. He is from British Columbia. I think Carey Price looks at this. You know, Montreal? I said yesterday. I feel like this is Montreal somewhat admitting that maybe their run to the Stanley Cup final was a little bit fluky that they have a flawed team and could use the cap space that they would get. By letting carry price go to Seattle. But once they come to him with this proposition and say, Hey, Will you move? Wave your no movement clause, I think. Carey Price.

"Walked away from Lennar. Right. They wanna Jennings Trophy with planner and Thomas Greiss. And now they've got them off. I'm trying member Varlamov fins They play. They play a system, Jeremy, right. It's like we're going to win the Jennings Trophy or whatever we're gonna have a low goes against. And we're not going to have to worry about committing to one goalie to do that. We're going to be fine. No matter who we put in there to an extent, right? Right. Well. The the debate right first up by the way to follow up. Seattle collected 35,000 deposits for season tickets. Wow, in a matter of hours, and that was in 2018. Does it say if it's a one year thing or was there a multiple multiple year commitment does not say what I'm looking at 35,000. Deposits. But you're right about Winnipeg, right? People were buying for multiple seasons at at the beginning, and they weren't They weren't just locked in for one year. So all right to the to the point about the big money goaltender to that age old debate, which You know you of course, Want great goaltending. It's never been about you Don't want your goaltender to be good. It's about you playing a salary Cap league you're trying to find where you can expose inefficiencies and one of the places to do it. Somebody wrote yesterday tossed the attacks. This is not like running back and the answer is my opinion that it is a lot like this it and that's because you can get a really good one for You know one what 20% of the price And then if he's really good, like Grubauer was just really good for Colorado, and now he might want to get paid. So teams walk away from those goals. That's what the Islanders are doing. We're not going to pay money to a goaltender, not big money. Maybe someday they ultimately do. But for now, they haven't so on this debate isn't Montreal walking away from Carey Price? Potentially a big time. Check in the side of you don't want to do that. They signed into that monster contract And then immediately after he lives up to what he was supposed to They think I mean, if you Yeah, If you wanna go to Seattle, man, I mean, best of lock right. Think we That's what it is. And John Shannon. You know what? What? When I pointed out that they're gonna let him go for free, he said. It's not free. They get $10.5 million in cap space. Just the idea that The biggest name at goaltender for the last, However many years it's probably him along with what long Quist. Mcflurry. Yeah. The biggest money, the biggest name the Oh, the guy that that the Penguins complained about last year in the return to play, we don't have to want to have to play Carey Price and then they lost to him. Right. You that guy Montreal just said like, Oh, yeah, that's fine. You can go. Yeah, Good luck. You know if if they ultimately take you, I think it is. It's a running back. It's similar to the running back because of the concept of how much money do you really want to put it? You have to pay a big name guy to be your goaltender. No, you don't. You know, the question is How do you get a goalie? You know, Like, what kind of assets do you used to find your goalie and then? How much would you pay the guy when his contract is due right when a big paydays come, let's say I don't know you pl or Omar? Let's say they re sign all marker. Upl is here in a year, and he takes the starting job and he runs with it. And his contract is up. How much you want to pay a goalie to stick around, You know, Would you go out on the open market and give a bobrovsky contract? Anybody? Well, no, you shouldn't. Because you don't hear Spencer night, Maybe Spencer nights the answer in Florida, Or maybe it would have been Chris Draeger instead. But they went out and gave Bobrovsky a huge contract. Why would you do that? So it is. It is kind of like running back. What do we say about running back? Well, it would be nice to have a really good running back. But you're not going to pay him a ton of money. And guess what? When he walks into free agency, you just go find another running back somewhere. Middle round of the draft. Whatever street free agent you can find another running back. No one ever, says It's not like I feel like people equate a discussion on whether you should pay a goalie $10 million a year that you don't think goalie is important. It's about the cap writes about the cap. It's the value of that contract. We're at places in the cap. What are you doing with defense? And what are you doing with forwards? And where do you put the value? Want a big money? Goaltender? Yes. You need good goaltending to win. Mean the Sabres haven't had consistent goaltending. I don't know Ryan Miller. It's been a while, Um so I understand you need and you know what the worst your team is in front of him. The nicer it is to have a goal who can stone everybody, But it's not an asset. It's not a position where You'd want to say Let's spend $8 million a year just to me. It doesn't make any sense because you can find other goaltenders and you don't need to spend big money to get a guy to come to your roster. It's it's um, I'm not trying to diminish the position. But if I'm paying $10 million give me the top center in the game. Give me the give me Kale Macara or if Rasmus telling turns out to be Kehlmann car? You know, I'd even give me I'll spend big money on a top goalscoring winger. Those Skinner obviously hasn't panned out the way they wanted. I would just spend money in those areas before I'd say I mean, it's trying to think like Dominic Cash if there was a dominant cash today, and his contract came up What would the Sabres do? Do you want to pay that guy $10 million a year and Max out an eight year contract and say, This is the face of the franchise. We're sinking money into that. I just don't think it's a good idea. On Skinner. Maybe hash. It is a bad example cause he's a once in a lifetime goaltender. Do you expect to bounce back from him or something? Well, Can I ask you? What's your What's your definition of bounce back? Can I get 20 goals from him? Yeah. I don't think that's a lot to ask. Do you think you will, though? Yeah. I think he will bounce back is getting 40. No, but I think he's not going to Jack Eichel feeding in parks, which 20 Skinner in that 40 goal seasons, scored all kinds of goals. He was amazing that year and he was on the top line and got a lot of minutes. You know, I know that we talk about Skinner like he has to be the worst contract in the sport..

"This guy is going to play. You know, all four defense four D like that's not what it takes. It takes quality as you pointed out. Ribs and and petty, But I still think you need multiple pieces for Jack Eichel because he's that good and that quality of a player for salmon is different Now. I'll tell you this. I interviewed Brad Larson for something else, the new coach in Columbus and he said, And I was this quote. Our team is gonna look much different next year. Oh, wow. Okay, So it's not just said Jones is is your team in Columbus is gonna look a lot different next year. They're planning on training and goalie Corpus. Hello, armors. Lincoln's You guys that Jody Shelley, he talked about both of them. I really like Mars likens Korpisalo is is good as corporate solo a step again above walmart. I don't think so. But Mars Lincoln's I think could be long term could be really, really good. So that would be a good direction. But if they think in Columbus, the team is going to look a lot different next year. There's a big piece. Come in to help down the middle at some point, and Sam Reinhart would be a decent sized piece like they would have to have more along the way of other trades and acquisition they're going to do, but I think Sam would be a good piece there. They want. Yeah. You know what might have been a long time ago. But you've got two of the three gold medal line there with Max Domi and Sam Reinhart. If he if he goes there if they were pretty dominant together at the world Junior is not going to try to bring Anthony Duclair back and me. Absolutely. Yes. Absolutely. He was already there once. Why not Bring him back Instigators? W gr 5 59 machine. Go ahead, Greg. So what? I'm trying to say to you here, gentlemen, How do we feel about my my pick? Number one. The Sabres needed defense era goaltender. We know that we do know that Columbus Blue Jackets have two very good goaltenders, and they want to move one of them. The fifth overall pick. Which what Ellie Elliot said. It could be. You know, I'm not saying there could be a high pick. I believe that it could be a Sam Reinhart deal. I think I don't know him overly excited about number five in a goal because I go to the goalies, hit or mess and the number five's hit or miss. You're not getting any certainty back in your lineup in the Who do we have as a goal right now? Okay, We have Lena's okay. And he needs to be re Don't have Llinas. We do not have Leanness ribs lesson. Okay. He's still technically. Until free agency start and I finally in Seoul, Mark. I'm telling you, I will like yell at on the rooftops. You don't want to go to free agency because there's too many goalies as not enough chairs. I've been in that situation before. I was like, Oh, I've been to back to back playoffs Conference finals two years ago after Philadelphia. I'm going to get five plus million a year on a long term deal. It's gonna be great. And you know everybody is talking about Ha. There's there's a lot of goalies and not a lot of spots. There's a lot of only not a lot of spots and you know how long I was on the market for three weeks. And I got a backup slash a one A B third goalie situation with the New York calendars. That's what ended up happening and I'm telling you, they are leading us all. Mark. You don't want to go to free agency. That's my thing. But okay, let's just say that You have an option to maybe acquire MERS, Lincoln's or a goalie via trade, or you have an option to maybe acquired goaltender to free agency for a few years, So look at the names that are available on free agency Frederick Frederick Anderson. Antti Raanta, Uh, Peter Marais. Zeke. Jonathan. Bernie is still a really, really good goaltender at James, right? Am not crazy about James Robert, but he had a good season. Okay, you've got you've got a you know, you've got goalies that are available. You've got goalies you've got. 56 Brian Elliott older. But he could come in and be a backup mentor to anybody you would want. Um there is gold. Chris Draeger. I forgot about Chris Draeger in Florida. There is goaltenders available that you don't have to. To trade for you can just sign them. And Lance Lisovsky. Also sorry you were saying and I was gonna say, and it's not going to be where you're going to have to to trade and then sign them to a huge contract. They're going to take Two year deal because they know that market's flooded Lance Lisovsky also right. He's had more time on our show the last couple days, and he has all year. Another savers. No for you. All the Devils have interest in defenseman Rasmus Crystalline in, according to multiple sources, the Devils have the assets, picks and prospects that would make the deal work for Buffalo. Glaring need at right hand defenseman with Carrick. A U F A. So, um, you know they have the fourth pick. I don't know if you get the fourth pick overall for restore for sure, but I mean, there's there's a trade. There's a trade there to be made, so maybe it Maybe it's New Jersey. And what we're talking about here is, uh, Elliott Friedman, reporting that the savers could be in the running here for another pick in the top. 10 and Craig suggested Columbus. Anaheim also came up and obviously the L A pick. So I think this is more to do with Sam than Jack. What do you guys think? 100%. 100%.

"Taylor Hall and line up tonight. Well, Curtis Lazar played tonight. Question for you guys and ah, A lot of talk about Lena's all mark today with Marty Biron, Craig Reveille, myself and the sabers tonight seven o'clock puck drop. And that's a 6 30 pregame show on MSG and six o'clock and W G. R 5 50. We made it yesterday, gentlemen. We made it through the day Long day I asked crack this morning, Marty. I said we talked about seven. Something later. I don't know, he said. So I was exhausted yesterday mentally It's so hard. Cause there's nothing going on. So you have to come up with with things to discuss and and possible scenarios. And you know when trades were happening, you just talk about the trade. Move on. Talk about the trade. Move on. Talk about the trade Move on. So this felt like Day in the month of May last year, when we didn't know if there was gonna be an NHL season or not, and it was in the middle of the pandemic and shutdowns and Nothing to talk about on trade Deadline day. That's really what it was. Complete snooze fest. Another snooze fest, you know? Oh, it's trade Deadline Day look, and it's going to be a maid. No. Another snooze fest. Tired of the everything, To be honest with you. Everything happened. The big trades happens. You know a day or two before something that still gave us lots to talk about, And you know, looking back at what the sabers have done in this trade deadline. We'll sit there, break down and give her thoughts. Did you expect, like really like and I'm gonna ask you guys this bt I'll ask you first, because you usually ask the questions. Did you expect anything to happen? Like really Like when you looked at you woke up yesterday morning. Yeah, specifically no with the league like sabers when you tell her like that's You know, And that happened overnight. So you're getting ready. And you're like, Okay. Well, that was it like I think that was it. But did you expect big things around the league? Because I think Nick Selina was big Damantha move was big, but other mental was big yesterday. Most illegal happened today before like when you shut up yesterday. Did you write down like it's going to be a busy day? Or did you kind of do it now? No. Not at all. I think the fireworks could have happened. I think Kevin Adams fielded a lot, and I mean a lot of calls. On players that did not get traded. What I mean by that is, I'm sure that there was a lot of interest in Sam Reinhart. I'm sure there was a lot of interest in Rasmus wrist, aligning. I'm sure that Kevin Adams was feeling a number of calls on Lena's Hallmark. And he chose Not to pull the trigger. There was there was one goalie trade. And it was David Reddick to Toronto. Like Johnson. Bernie did not go anywhere. Chris Draeger in Florida did not go anywhere, and I don't think Florida would have traded them because then they would have been stuck without a backup in Spencer Night, a 19 year old goalie as a backup, but I didn't think there was going to be any movement on Lena's. But are you surprised at Like the price for players yesterday was not high. There was trees. There was 1/7 round pick in 2023 traded yesterday. Seventh rounder in 2023 oldest, Like how old is that kid? That's what I was gonna say. Dead kid right now is playing 14 you hockey 15 u r K maybe. One point for you. It was so bad, so there's 16. He's 16. No, he's not because 16 year olds are getting traded in 2022 is 15 right now. 15 15 years old, So But so, Yeah. You're not going to trade some right now. Right now The price is not where you want it to be or not Trading Restore. Now the price is not where you want it to be. You're not. You're not making As they say hockey trades because there was really no price point for that. Parents get those kids out there. Shoot! Pox is 1/7 round pick available. Well, Nashville got 1/7 round there right for every good Branson. So actually, although I've got a seven grounder, you went to Nashville. So that's a 2023 draft pick that you could go. You could be a new Ottawa senators draft pick. If you really work hard, So Craig based off based off your comment there about fielding a lot of calls that that's kind of what Sparked my question in the Zoom press conference, and it was basically throughout the process. Like I called it the Big three and I said you've gone through. The draft free agency and now a trade deadline, and he's fielded a lot of calls on players. All through those process all through that at the draft, Great free agency and things like that. And then yesterday So that's what my question was. Does yesterday help him? Without year kind of help him gauge What the future of this team is going to look like knowing what could potentially be out there. Come the draft. Yes, I think it. I'm sure Kevin Adams was probably more busy than any GM out there. There's no question Um, I'm sure that he talked to many, many G M's that we're kicking tires, maybe not necessarily super interested, but at least kicking tires on players. Like Jack Eichel. Like Sam Reinhart like mass, Miss crystalline in players that were not moved at this year's deadline. Or maybe they won't be moved period. But at least Kevin Adams at least got an opportunity. You understand that what the market is at this point in time, things are gonna change in a couple.

It was Florida feeding Nashville by a final score off two to nothing. Chris Drinker was in the net Syria, Brodsky has found his game of life. He's got a pretty good role, but Joel decided to go with Chris Draeger. Head of their game tomorrow versus the Tampa Bay Lightning in Trigger with a 21 save shutout. Sasha Bark off scored again for the Panthers and two to nothing victory. You see Sorrows was forced to make 47 saves for Nashville, a beaten twice as well in the two. Nothing final will hear a little bit more from that game coming up a little bit later here in the postgame show, but Florida Now at 44 points will Nashville remains at 27 is we take a look at the central Division standings so of the Lightning after today's went over the Blackhawks remain two points ahead of the Panthers.

They're approaching the midway point of the first period in that one in the Canes and Blue Jackets are scoreless and Columbus win tonight. Draws them even with the Blackhawks at 33 points, because the blue jackets you know I've gotten their stuff together a little bit lately there too, Oh into over their last four, while the Kanes have dropped to Nero after their eight game winning streak. So again scoreless there in the middle of the first period, and by the way, I think I mentioned this earlier that Columbus Blue Jackets in the Black Hawks do have the same number of games following tonight's Jackets contest in Raleigh. So it's not a matter of having games in hand when we look at the point standings between the Blackhawks And the Columbus Blue Jackets. Also in the first period, the Islanders have jumped out to a three to nothing lead on the Flyers. Boy, What a roller coaster. Philadelphia is going through a nine. Nothing loss a couple of nights ago against the Rangers, and they bounced back. And beat the Islanders, who had been red hot Now, in this rematch against the the aisles, New York has jumped out on top three Nothing that about midway through the first period as well. Also in the central, the other contest. Dallas is visiting Detroit. They're midway through the first period at Little Caesars Arena and scoreless so far the stars coming into this one a 25 points. That's only one point better. Then the cellar dwelling Red wings in the central Division. But Detroit has won three of their last four. While the stars they continue scuffling.

"Of Calvin, Don second time tonight. Some friendly fire from Colin Deleuze defenseman involves the puck getting past him. So the goal credited the horn quest from Huberdeau and Radko goddess to make it 4 to 2. And after Ryan Carpenter took a slashing call with a little bit more than three minutes remaining in the game, Florida put the icing on the cake in front of the net, hears him around with a shot. These cars didn't take him long bark off off the face off, got away a shot from the slot, then worked the puck over to Jonathan Huberdeau, who hooked it pass. Delia for his first goal on the season is over. No. Yeah, his first from bark off and horn Qu'est at the 16 55 mark and that would close out the scoring panthers out. Shoot the Blackhawks. 10 8 that final period It was 29 24 for the game Hawks hell below 50% on the face off Dad for the first time this year, just barely, However, the only 1 49% of their drugs make that 47%. After going 50 50 in the first two contests against Tampa Bay Hawks credit with 13 hits compared to eight for Florida also credit with just four blocks shots. The Panthers collected 13 of those in front. Of Chris Driggers staffed 23 of the 25 shots that he faced. Meantime, Colin dealer gives up a five spot for the second consecutive game again a little bit of rough going with a couple of deflections from his teammates getting past him as he stops 24 of 29 shots Now in the game summary. They've been really slow down in Florida. They have yet to put the final one up. That includes the three stars. Rest assured, I'm gonna take a shot at this. The three star selection sponsored by Bud Light, there's a Bud light there. I'm assuming it's going to be a Panther sweep and the 12 and three stars going to some combination of two lots to rein in as well as Jonathan Huberdeau had a goal in to assist Patrick or Enquist likely what's terrain and had a goal and assist there could also potentially give it to Chris Draeger. Making rare start for him. He doesn't have a whole lot of experience, even though he's in a young goaltender, but drinker stopping all but two shots that he faced here this evening. So once again your final score five. You, too. When we come back, we'll hear some more postgame reaction from Florida straight ahead of the Blackhawks postgame show on 7 20, WGN. Good afternoon.
