"So it makes it unique on top of that. It's four, seven game series. It's physical series. When you talk to a guy like grant wisdom who could be one of the coolest greatest guys I've ever met an absolute winner at every you know level and he talked about just how hard it has to be would be to win a Stanley Cup and this guy that's one Super Bowls and how tough these guys are. You just put that all together the ground. Swell, the fan base here, the great stories, the history, what Bobby and no well, and Jimmy Roberts and Phil Roberto, and you know.

"Jake beaver better, Joey. You experienced as part of it, what what Pittsburgh did in what was what was it like seventeen years ago or so, or looked like they were teetering on the brink in Pittsburgh. And then if you're almost gonna move. Yeah. I mean, they were. Sprint center, which still sits vacant for h. l. team and then they have the run of success. And now if you talk to people in Pittsburgh and this surprise me would assume list, I would assume it's a Steelers town, but I'm told that the penguins town. Yeah, which is really saying something with the history of the Steelers, but it got going because they went on that run. We're up there. You experienced it. And so I'll anytime when Chris was in here is our first blues guest. And since Tom Stillman, Keith shock, John, Kelly, Kelly, chase, Darren, Pang recently I always ask the question because I love hearing the answer. What would it mean to this city? You never wore the note on the sweater, but now you're part of the organization. What would it mean to the city is a Saint Louis into actually experienced that firsthand cheese. I mean, it was the people here, the fans here, the kids here. I mean, everyone is just management whole organization. People are just so desperate for championship is insane. I had sitting with Bobby player couple nights. Ago at the hall of fame thing and and he was telling me about his experience, a plane in those cups, how close they got the, we've gotten close so much, but I think to bring a Cup home here, I think I think it really could just revamp the entire city. I mean, you look at the Chicago Blackhawks when they went on their runs and they put they put your Kogyo kind of on that map. And Chicago has done that for a while, but the kind of went vacant for a bit now back on that map, right. I think Saint Louis could in some ways out nothing against the Carl's. I think it really could establish themselves as maybe more of a hockey town. And I know that saying a lot, but I just I see the excitement. I see where this this game is going and how excited people are getting about it and and to have this young group and this this exciting group that hit the ice and to bring home a championship guy who would just being it would mean everything to me. I mean everything all my friends. I mean, it would be one heck of a party. I mean, I, I love asking the questions. I love hearing the answer and that was one of the signature moments. I think from. From when we talked about it and people remember that that's what people people think about it. You know when I when Panger was interviewing, you know, I think I think of Bobby plager- we thinks of meeting, you know, it's just a lot of people think of alumni and for what that would would mean for for those guys, you know, to be parts man, you can really just simplify it. It. It's just a cool trophy. I mean, really it? Nope. People talk about winning the World Series. They don't talk about winning the World Series. Trophy people talk about winning Super Bowl, but they really, even though it has a great name to one of the all time greatest coaches in Lombardo they don't talk about, well, we just can't wait to win the Lombardi trophy. Right? K. I don't even think to get a name for invest in the NBA. Right? I'm desert trophy of the name. No, thanks. Okay. Well, that's part of the point. Okay. They win in World Series. You win the trophy. And they present the trophy to the owners and the general manager in the NFL down on the field, they present the trophy to the owner in the NBA owners and general managers in hockey. They don't talk about. We wanted NHL championship. We won the Stanley Cup in the they, they won the trophy. They won the Cup. I mean, it's that's how it's talked about him. The Cup isn't presented to the owners who paid for the team. It's not presented to the general managers who built the team coaches who coached the team is presented to the captain of the team in the players who want it, and it is really a cool thing about the sport of hockey where it comes down to the players that want it. I get that trophy and I, it's just me..

"His growth and pick up from juniors and what he did an Anaheim, and he got a great opportunity Anaheim and to play with Perry and gets laugh and and then go over MC mcdavid and he's played with such great players and he's really, really come into his own. I mean, I agree with Chris, I think it was an absolute steel. I mean, what was it? One one point, seven, five. I mean, I think what we see in the preseason, I mean how he's already helped the power play. He's a guy like, you know, all the fans washing miss year. You know, he makes his money below the hash marks in the offensive zone when he has a puck against the wall. I mean, big bodies cannot take him off the puck. He, he rolls off well, he sees the ice well in his complement at right now, very well with rhino Riley who sees the is just as well. And then you put like, number ninety one in the high slot there. I mean, this could be streamlined extremely dangerous line for the blues. Yeah, that's exciting and people were super fired up about it. As it was, but then like you said, you combine it with all the other moves, and that has people super fired up observing what you observe having played knowing players. Unlike any of us can. Can really relate because you're out on the ice with these guys. How does this team and European up? I think the top nine are as good as anyone in the league. I think you know, we had this discussion last night with aiming Alex, and you know you're talking about depth and are they the best team on paper? I don't know if the best team on paper, you know, I think the Winnipeg Jets you know for for, you know, rightfully so have been projected the window when everything this year from all the the top people in this in this game. But I think if you look at strictly top nine, I mean the, I mean, just hypothetically speaking, let's pretend the Bosak Steen on that third line shutdown role, and then you throw a guy like Sammy play in there. I mean, I would mask that third up against any their line in the league. And if that could be your shutdown line, look at those top two lines with shorts and Hsien and I mean Cairo and O'Reilly and terracing those of the scoring line. So top nine, unlike man without a doubt, I think we have the firepower you know, the fourth line..

"Saint Louis blues refer team when you're when you intend to be competing for a Stanley Cup on a player that may not impact your for five years is very different than a team that kind of needs those pictures to fill the hammered. So nothing happened. Could was done at the draft and it certainly wasn't from a lack of effort. Then they get up in. It's free agency as David Peron. They knew him could guy to bring back not a sexy signing by any means in that sense and Tyler Bosak and not will someone that a lot of fans were familiar with has some good second-line upside slotted. You know, probably third line for this hockey team with his death. And of course you know, he was with Toronto during all the struggle. So there's at what's going on with, you know, no real changes in the know. And then because of those signings that made burglar that made so Boko vailable and Doug was able to rekindle the trade that he had already tried to get done for O'Reilly. And, and it happened, you know, which is good. The signing though, and we talked about this during our last broadcast. That's great. You if you had opened up camp the right then and there you'd have been pretty happy and pretty excited. Pat maroon. Turning down, probably more money someplace else and signing on a one year deal to come play here in Saint Louis. And I hope I'm right on this, but that could be an absolutely monster signing, and it's because he brings an element. The team hasn't had for a while desire and a willing to get in front of the net just in and it's at big body. Again, it's fitting that he's wearing number seven after after Walt it were and you know that one then that that took those flames that had been lit and really launched it. And so I'm just excited to see how this thing plays out is the season begins if guys stay healthy and how it works. Because I, I still think there's some tweaking to come to be honest with you. But I think now that I have, I, I really do believe that they can compete for central division title with the team they have, which is saying something in that in that division you of course know you know, ninety plus percent of the players in the league having played. But Pat maroon is somebody that you can go back on even further than than your time in the league. What was your opinion of that move? Observing it from where you are observing it at the time. But yeah, when that happened, I was I just merely thought back to win. I, I started playing with Pat and that's when we were kids. And you know, Pat was always just big kid. And I mean, you know, he had a lot of baby fat on him. He was very tall. And if you look the rest of his family kind of short family, he was kind of like this outcast, big tall, big kid. He just couldn't skate very well. He had a terrible stride. He was from Oakville and everyone in South County, just loved roller hockey. Ice hockey wasn't again. We came back to what we talked about back in the day and you know it wasn't hockey, wasn't a big hotbed yet in Saint Louis. And so he's just roller hockey player and he decays and step on the ice. And he looked like goofball. I mean, in Pat maroon, he's throughout all of his childhood. He was kind of known is like the big body. He had great hands always had good hands, very gifted because of roller hockey. You know history and but he just couldn't skate and he, I mean you ask anyone from his high school in this, you know, twenty years ago you ever guess it Pat Bruins playing the NHL and right now for Saint Louis blues and people just laugh. I mean, he was that type of player in to see him..

"James Carlton state farm is somebody who spent so much time on the ice played in the league, but also you talking Saint Louis planet CBC when in three state championships, how do you view the game in Saint Louis now versus say, when you were coming up? Oh, it's huge. I mean everyone's playing hockey now and you know, with the the two rings coming up. I mean, they don't have those ranks yet and you go to Kirkwood or after Fenton, any Friday, Saturday or Sunday, and it is just booked solid. So I mean, there's a desperate need for ice and that's just a credit to how many kids just are excited about the sport hockey. I think the winter classic did huge things for the community here as far as kids getting excited about it, but in the blue is going to be good this year. I think people are just really amped up about it. You know, growing up here earlier, you know, twenty years ago. There wasn't a lot of hockey after had a rain. There was granted city maybe Webster, but they're all out doors and and there wasn't really a huge opportunity. And our coaches were plumbers and my dad was in concrete. I mean, those were we just needed. Dads on the bench who would give kind of even ice time. But now the game has grown so much. I think the biggest reason for that is because you know Kika, Chuck six round l. mcginnis sticks around a lot of these players who retired here. Now they have kids who were born here, grew up here and now they're coaching. So all these young kids are being coached by these foreign professionals. And I just think that that is the biggest reason for why this game has grown so much and we'll continue to grow and with the new sheets coming up. I mean, there's really no end. I mean, you could be looking at maybe a potential city like Chicago with Saint Louis can kinda mimic act with all the youth programming. There could be three or four AAA teams in here in ten years. You know, who knows? Yeah. I mean, there's there's two now and, and this one of the things that that new ice rink in in Maryland heights is gonna do to the way they've designed. It is going to help so much because, and I said this when we did the groundbreaking and really do believe it. You will now be able to host tournaments, youth hockey tournaments in Saint Louis that you are never able to host before. Teams are. People are still Dr driving to Minnesota. They're still driving to Chicago. There's still drive, believe it or not the Indianapolis, and you know, and, and and around for that. And now you're going to be able to host them here and host them really well, because we all know that the event capabilities at this town has. So the thing is, is I, I think we're just at the beginning of what is really to come. And we're talking fifty years of this franchise being in town. But I mean, it it, I, I really feel this. I feel like we're, we're, we're at a new dawn in some way, shape or form. And and all we gotta do is find a way to in a fan, the flames a little bit, and really just turn it into a raging fire while a great run by the team this year with certainly ignoring that. And you know you. Are part of the broadcast team at this point, but there was an, I think it was a Saturday curbs where in the morning I felt like loose fans were beside themselves because I think that was the David Perron acquisition nothing at saved in the rom. That's all that it was. And then by ten o'clock that night o'reilly's part of it and in twelve hours, it went from despair to great optimism. Well, you had the draft where I thought, I think, fans almost look at the draft now, like they look at the trade deadline because I think some general managers kind of getting tired of being held hostage, and there's that much more value on draft picks because of salary cap era. So depending on where your team is in the competitive process, those debt draft picks could have different Bill. A third round draft pick for the.

"Watching the woman of the seventy. It was a whole thing. All right, Joe, I gotta ask about this. I gotta ask about your what your perceived broadcast styles. What do you think you're going to because you're actually playing against a lot of these guys yet it'd be calling. Is that a weird spot where you know, it's not weird. I think it's actually, I hope to enlighten the listener a little bit and give them some insight about why certain players do certain things. And while why rhino Riley is so successful in the face off dot, and because I've gone against them and I know what he's looking for. I know how he engaged his body and how he makes it just minutes. And so I think if anything being so current from the game is is going to help my style and, but to answer your first question, I don't know what my style is just yet. I'm still working through that and into Chris's point earlier. I'm just trying to be me for a while they're trying to like, you know, do I get a voice coach to take lessons about? You know, what do I gotta do to increase my vocabulary increase curse was just like, you know, hey, I just want you to be you. So I'm, you know, the, the more I become myself and just get comfortable in myself. I think that that that my role and our chemistry. You will kind of find. I think that's the right play. You don't want to be somebody else when you gotta was feedback from what twelve different people in broadcasting who put Joey in their top three. What did they like when they when they reviewed all of the candidates and then put him in the top three. Here's the thing that they thought it was good. You know what? It was the sound I it was. There was a freshness to it that that that helped to. And, and I think you could hear even in the one period that we did. I think you could hear kinda that newness off the ice in in why was important, and that's going to wear off honestly, if if he decides to do it long enough because there's going to be a time where the players you play within it Heke could only be a couple of years for things really changed. But I just think that where the popularity of the game, the continued growth of the game where where it is now, especially in Saint Louis number kids, you see what Tarasenko jerseys, Fabri jersey Schwartz jerseys. You know, Perico all these guys. I just think in the end that that Kerr freshness to be able to relate today's locker room, which is very different than it was even ten years ago. What today's players are going through someone that who who's career, you know, ended because of an injury and dealt with, you know, the hot button topic of concussions. You know, and you just put all that put all that together. And it just seemed like a good fit. Someone that played youth hockey in Saint Louis played high school hockey. You know all the way through in Saint Louis, someone that that went and played college hockey at northeastern. So part of our obviously part of our job is to go on the air working, describe what we see, but being in the community and helping with the different initiatives of the team is also a critical part, a major part of what we do, and I felt the Joey was going to be able to relate and have the right messages for, you know, a sport that now we're going to have with the new Maryland heights rank and then shoot looks like getting the ground broken on one in Chesterfield within a couple years. We're going to have that much more ice again, there's going to be opportunities to grow. The blues of started that you know that hockey twenty twenty initiative to get twenty thousand more kids playing hockey over five year period, believe it or not all this played into now whether or not we could just talk the game. And and I think other saw that as well. Hope you're enjoying the conversation.

"I have a belief when it comes to play by play in that is that a lot of teams a lot of networks nowadays don't and i and i understand what i see this at i am a play by play guy suicides a little selfserving but but it it really is bigger picture than this i don't think the i think the care for the quality of the play by play and the broadcasting is nowhere near the level it used to be and nowhere near the level which should be i have to ask immediately why why is that because if you go around in in our stand when you're listening to a sporting event brought it becomes very personal relive broadcasting is a personal business we're we're talking to a microphone and i can't see who's listening but even it as as we do a podcast we don't know who's click on on it ripe but as they hear you more as the learn your sense of humor because using it on the air they either start to relate to you in all that that's why people come back and want to listen to you show again right and and frankly in you know this they think they know your win in reality they don't know darn thing about her okay i would i would i think has happened is because of the bottom line zone it is the actual quality of the art of calling games just isn't what is in any go through in listen like listen to listen a lotta college football like whistle to the local broadcast right am been owners are touchdown and geiszer yelling and screaming their head off and you're going that's not broadcasting up because you're yelling and screaming you know touchdown touchdown touchdown rate at doesn't make it a great class to tell you i like this because now you're providing me with a tangible example i go yeah i agree and a football jumping over there by late i all the time so the guys want you know muslim weeping in the background he's making it he's making a great call you know the twenty five fifteen and you hear the guy drama going yeah you're like a you know and and and so.

"Where i'm coming from in my wing of broadcasting is probably different the irs but maybe it's not what i became aware when i was a camel v is my absolute irrelevance to the station and i don't say that a selfdeprecating way i it's almost anybody who would be there in that any but at the moment i say to alan cohen the general manager i need a fifteen percent raise which might sound somewhat conservative to people i have no idea he's going to go okay there's a there's a guy in south dakota or were you came from and little rock would cut off his left hand and come here for fifteen percent less than your currently making and it does not impact my bottom line kinda cachet and low and you have to have an impact on the bottom line in there are a handful of people in the marketed on play by play i don't i don't how much impact to the bottom line there's a broadcaster have sets where i'm coming from well because we're going to be listening to the blues gays it might be pissed though if the guy they love listening to isn't there are gene bob yet well maybe yes but to your original pointed irrelevance if i wasn't doing the blues games tomorrow and somebody else was guess what the games are still going to happen her out get a whole right called off right and whether they like my replacement or not if is masses they don't really like my replacement they're gonna turn around and finds the next geico so you have the i i don't think it's different in this business versus any business the had to find a way to be relevant you have to find a way to bring value you have to find a way to connect now i do believe.
