"Needs to park that all that crap after the whistle. All the it. You know in play aggravation stuff. Because he's focused. It looks like more on that than generating scoring chances. They need him to play. Zac rinaldo to run around right. That's akron aldo's they've got dylan dubey. Who's an aggressive little agitating player. Let him go run around. Matthew could truck scott a play. And i think the point from solder is. I don't know how good you think you are. But you're not playing well enough and we need more from you. The maybe no surprise the guy. That's had the biggest jump in minutes lucia. And i gotta say drake's i've been for the most part really impressed with lucia season. He has been an effective player. For calgary They have them for the price they have. Which is too much. But i think he's skating better than he has the last couple of years and he still puts fear of all things into most flares when he starts moving around there. We made a bit of a stink. Monday night After the game gustafsen lockdown his first. Nhl win we'll just talk briefly. Is it amused me. Because i could see myself doing this. And it's happened so many times. Over time rasima anderson tries to take the the game winning pocket right will brady could chalk his wants. No part of that even though brady has been you use. He's been the culprit on that seen historically as wealth. Did you buy rasmus. Sanderson's explanation after the fact. You know saying look. I was pissed off. You know we lost. We were playing well. I didn't realize it was is first. Nhl win he should have the box. I threw it back. I mean that. Just good old-fashioned shenanigans. It is because when you're mad at the end of a game and the puck comes to you generally slap it down the ice like you. Just get rid of it. He was carrying the thing. Like where was he going with it. You're not allowed. You're you're not practicing your stick. Handling at this point like member late last week winnipeg loses in edmonton and the puck bounces rate blake wheeler. Yeah well. He didn't take it with him. He threw it into the stands he was mad. And so i. I don't care one way or the other. I'm glad guston's.

The big leagues is really difficult for a guy to come to that day. Right to to feel comfortable with it because they fought so hard you know their whole life to stay in the league to get into the league to get drafted all that stuff.

That really grabs you. That you're twenty six million dollars in debt. The guy has already made his career earnings in the nhl. Well over fifty million dollars so before the age of thirty somehow this guy has blown through almost eighty million dollars to get where he is right now. Unbelievable how what happened.

I was kind of tepid about it yesterday. I don't know that sounds. That sounds like a free pass. You know sort of thing. But but i woke up this morning thinking about hockey starting out. That's good that's good. It might be a free pass for the canadian. Teams were terrible. But i think there's a good chunk of canadian teams. That are very good so yeah. A canadian team is an automatic for the conference. Final for sure. But it's not like it's a lesser division. That gives them a free pass. It still going to be well earned even though we're kind of putting in framing it in those terms like a canadian team is guaranteed a spot. It doesn't mean it's not going to be hard right. Darren pang yesterday. We had him on the suspended with me and rusty. You're a big part of that as well and he talked about the sense at the end of the show.

"Great guy that everyone loves hanging out with great storyteller. And I really good golfer. So it makes me wanna go chatting with him. That are a we had a legit trade. Go down with the prospect in the NHL Philipson there. Please absolately not long after prospect, Adam FOX he was going to go back to Harvard for senior season the art of the VA of the Harvard. Harvard harvard. The. Who's me the hurricanes? Ship them off to the ranges for a second round pick in June's draft and a conditional third and twenty twenty the third would become a second of FOX place thirty NHL games with the Rangers next year. That's a pretty good Hoffa Carolina considering you know, he could've just went. And everyone knows he wants to go the ranges probably didn't have to give anything. But grenell. You made a great point saying give Carolina some credit. Did you own Twitter? Like, yeah. Got a second round pick from guy that everyone knew they wanted to leave for a guy that was drafted in the third round. So I mean, essentially, they flip that I mean he was originally drafted by Calgary, and then was sent over in that Lindholm Hamilton trade. But I think Carolina getting a ton of credit here agree now saying that wouldn't he have to go back and play college for another full season next year if yet, but then he will have chose any team you, correct? But I mean, it's clear that he probably thinks he's NHL ready. It's clear that the Rangers think he's NHL ready. Carolina does have. Some type of leverage and saying if you don't offer me enough, I'm not gonna train them to you to help benefit your team. He's going to go have to eat another year in college Harvard's different. Those those guys love to go back and finish out their career. And I'm not I'm just trying to analyze the entire situation. Sure. Credit can be given to Carolina forgetting a potential second round pick out of it. Right. If he ends up plan more than thirty games. But what you're saying? Is that they were like, hey, if you don't give us what we want. We're not your too good for college now, and you're going back. Yeah. Right. Well, yeah. Or we're not gonna just give up an asset to help the New York Rangers and considering your essentially fucking us by not signing with us. We'll let you rot another year in college..

Do think I had a name plate on. The back of my sweater microbes NHL gain, not nothing. So I just I go into Minnesota. I got no name on the back. I play the game. And it was about halfway through the first period. It was a commercial break and some guy in the crowd yells out. Hey, Pang the pee-wee's run next. Stick around. And I'm I'm sitting there thinking to myself, I'm five four and a half. I was one hundred thirty two pound. And I'm thinking, oh my goodness. I am in the big show. It was sold out the hawks and the hawks and the and the north stars. They hate each other. L seek or Dino sister rally the whole group. So anyway, that was my first array into it. And I I got stay there for a couple of weeks made in NHL paycheck. Remember blind. My mother marching much. I I was making ninety thousand though, I think I had about a I think I might have made like thirteen thousand some length that in that time that I was up. By law. Two seven times that this year. That's crazy. Call are. I know I know he's gonna get paid through this summer. I was making I was making twenty two five in the minors. I mean, my Purdue was thirteen dollars a day. This was a bonus, man. I was living life exactly people at the tonight their film and rookie of the year Haughey version with fucks this who is. Other guy that now is making waves the NHL different way that you played with though was a hell of a player. I I've been told was Bruce Cassidy, right? Oh, he's a great player. Absolutely. He was unbelievable. He as a rookie in the Ontario hockey he had over a hundred and ten points. I mean, I did defensive and like he he was so calm, cool and collected. It was in it was he was incredible. I never seen a guy like the fire was out its hottest. And that guy was like, he didn't have a pulse. He would make a play. He would drag a guy in front of the net. He would the first time. I got traded to Ottawa from Belleville. I was the first call drafted by the Belleville bowl. And then the second year, I got I got traded to my hometown of Ottawa. Thank god. And it ended up that Bruce Cassidy set me. So can you play the park. What's going on? What do you like? And I go Brucie you're in trouble play back to me. I can play the puck and no problems there. Sure enough pressure on got the puck on his backhand rate in front of me, maybe ten feet and he high saucers back in poster to me racing glove. I. Catch it put it down. He peels off. I passing the puck. And he goes down the other way. And he goes to great play. I'm like great play. I didn't expect that. But that's Brucie. Brad, Sean, Bruce Cassidy were tremendous together. They were unbelievable ones right hand shot one the left hand shot, and they they do it. All they were great thing. Like, julia. You around was both in IHL and the age the eighties. So I wanna ask how insane did some of those fears get because of the fights end. Did you have have scrap yourself as a goalie? I scrap in major greenery. I I honestly I got I got my I got the shit kicked out of me. It was embarrassing. Yeah..

"You're hire them just hard. I wanna lick your nuts. Anyway, nobody talked about in. This is a guy with credibility got Stanley Cups. And he was one of those top and players where you said sometimes the top line. You get a little bit complacent. You're playing with the big boys where all of a sudden, you break them up and you're trying to impress your new linemates? And that's exactly what they did. And it worked out for him. And it was an interesting comment that that's maybe an element that I wouldn't have known because that never had to happen to me. I was more of the anchor where I was being somebody being forced play with me. A couple of other things. Yeah. Hey skin in that pass to tie the other night? And then of course, the shorthanded goal by cog leanna. Man. I was really surprised that Bishop didn't come out and play that. I'm sorry. Not bishop. It was Bennington didn't come out and play that puck. And I know a lot of people say like it depends really on the goalie in it ended up being kind of far away from the net. But right when you see a pocket by defense minute top. It was done up top running the point on the umbrella. If a puck it's by him, you almost no it's going to be a two on one most of the time. And that that way you could tell and Cox did his thing, man. One of the best skaters the league still should have the iron man streak fucking that suspension. I love cogs one of the funny. If people ever asked me who's the funniest guy in the league that I would knows funny. Andrew call auto doesn't credible imitations teammates, love them. And so to see him score that big oil wasn't a surprise. And it was enormous in game three even though they ended up losing that one Kagler on another guy off the ice. Just very dedicated to the game big on supplements are big time on on his gym time. And ph and his water all just to alternate professional in a great guy to have around so happy for him to get it going -fensive Lii, and I think that pretty much route I should go to Pang or now because he talks a lot about the blues color guy.

"Com studios loved the conversation, and you know the thing that I always enjoy most when I have you know, members of the blues in whatever capacity there in is that kind of final question where I asked, what would it be like if they won the Stanley Cup? And it sounds like paying on the same page with me, think of the guys who actually wore the sweater dating back to Bobby plager- through Kelly chase and then some of the recent alumni as well. And what that would mean I'm telling you and in fact that you know when I talked about this year's roster and the anticipation for this year, his eyes lit up that was not a that was not a dog and pony show there that was sincerity. He is very optimistic about this upcoming season and that fires you up as well. And then on top of that, you know his playing career. I, you know. What he first off who he played with holy smokes. But then second early, you know, grinding to get to the NHL and you know having that defining moment where he's like, yeah, you know what? I'm not good enough and then going back and working his ass off to make sure that he got back and stuck around. That kind of tells you the kind of guy that that that he is as a broadcaster love, listening to him, love watching for the broadcast teams across the board here locally or so good. But I've always felt like because of the chemistry and the passion for the organization. The blues, you've just had fans of the blues had great fortune with the caliber broadcasters that we have here in Saint Louis, so so good to have Panger in and talking it over with him, hope it fires you up for the upcoming season and also gives you some history on his career and his upbringing, and also just his love for the game.

"Is it it's actually the number three show in the world in the world and with a bullet though, so it might get the get the number one AM radio stations. Absolutely. Thank you for that promo. We, there's a gentleman by the he calls in his daddy Padre, but his name's Tyler Stewart and he is the, I believe, the, I don't know what the term is for it. But if like a like a goalie is in addition, he's sitting in the three hundred hundred. Yeah, Doug vaughn's, your spare goalie. Doug von. My co-host thinks that that is the dumbest thing in sports. There is a guy saying the three hundred level who could actually wind up playing in the game, and he always goes back to why not put like poor twos or something like that that's to play in the net. Yeah, and he's asked chase about it. I feel like he's asking Chuck about it or ask Chuck about it, and they're both like, no, you don't understand just because you play hockey. Doesn't mean that means you can go play goal. Gingell your thoughts on daddy, Padre aka Tyler. Stewart and the rule you got, it wasn't title Stewart. The drummer for bare naked ladies leave was now he's now he's stocking vending machines when he's not sitting in a little more. Well, you're right on both counts. If you've got a player on your on your on your roster that did play gold growing up or does throw the goalie equipment on in practice which used to happen a lot more than it does now and could put on goalie skates. Then that would be a possibility I, I would. I would actually probably do that rather than no fence to Tyler Stewart or whatever. But but because Tyler is played, I mean, he is the goalie. I mean, he's growing up being immune. So there there is a difference there and actually toddlers pretty good. He's pretty quicken these. So. So by. So I do like that. But I, I see the other side, but I think what maybe what Doug. The skates of a forward are Rockford. You're not gonna put on those skates and put on goalie pads over top, those skates, your balance, you'd be falling on your face the whole time. So the the, the skate blade of a goalie is flat so that you, you have that balance and you're on your heels than you are anyway, so long story short, unless you've worn inexperienced that you're not gonna be thrown in that position. I think it's the coolest thing in the world that a kid that never had a chance to play in the NHL plays rec hockey and has a few beers with the boys afterwards or maybe in the middle of the game and has a chance to put on the sweater and get treated like pros because everyone of our NHL players on the blues around our league, Pat him on the pads and treat them just like a player. Once you're in the and once you throw on that sweater, you are one of your teammates. So I think the fun part is that keeps a kid motivated to keep playing the game and get a chance to like, I, I think that's awesome. So he did what a floor hockey championship. I believe at Brentwood. Couple of. Ago. So he's trending? Yes. Good for him. Yeah, see, probably played forward though. No wants to play goalie and floor hockey and telling you that right now, we all wanted to play. We wanted. We wanted to score score drank somebody, not. Yeah. Thank you. I've enjoyed the hell out of it. Golf and hockey with you. Thank you so much. We'll play some time with love the six point, scotch game, hammer game, something like that. Are you give me on the hammer? Okay, sounds good. Thanks Fagor. So there it is.

"The Tim mckernan show back to our guest. Darren Pang as you're playing, are you thinking, well, you know, it's, you know, I'm in the NHL. But inevitably you're thinking past that and thinking broadcasting, or what's in your mindset that gets from the transition from the playing to becoming the Darren Pang that the blues fans and many fans around North America familiar with? I think I think I was planning that when I was playing major junior a with the auto sixty-seven. Wow. Yeah, that was because I had already if I didn't get signed by team, we had a four year scholarship. Anybody that plays major junior. So many years gets a full ride in Canada. And I know that we obviously the schools in the states are plentiful in great schools, but there's some great schools in Canada. Unfortunately, I'd really didn't pay much attention to school so I couldn't get into some of them, but I was trying to get into Ryerson is a I. I wanted to get into a broadcast in school and that's where I was headed. And and then I ended up signing a two year contract. So I did turn pro and I I, but I at so at that point that I really thought about my second year in the second year in the minors I hosted a show every Friday morning at eight o'clock in Saginaw. So I started driving to a radio station in was just one hour, eight to nine o'clock. Then I go to practice for ten thirty. And so then I thought little bit longer about that and harder about that. And then when I was in Chicago, big city, plenty of opportunity, I tore my ACL and so I was out, I had surgery September of today's September, eleventh and September. Eleventh nineteen Eighty-nine and our producer at the time Lisa seltzer, it'd be like anyone that you guys work. She worked for the team. She was the producer for Pat Foley and Dale talent. And and she said, I'm gonna ask the Blackhawks permission for you to deuce college hockey. I said, well, that's a great idea. So I did c. c. h. hockey I you, I see. Flames were c. c. h. a. m you know whether it be Michigan state or fair state or lake superior wherever bowling green. So I, I, I got him a molded IFP and I started doing games and I did games with three play-by-play guys at at UIC which was pretty amazing. One, one guy, Chris. Batson. He ended up being the first voice of the Anaheim ducks. My second guy was Randy haunt. He still the voice of the San Jose Sharks, and my third voice was Mike Goldberg that I worked with later on ESPN and he worked for the Red Wings wild and UFC. He's the voice of the US. So this little the school, it's no longer d one. So that's how I got. So now I had demo tapes now I got, you know, now I was really into it, and and so when it when I ended up retiring couple years later, I really, I jumped right into it without hesitation. What do you think it is that that has made you successful and continue to climb up the ranks and be a voice that I think you know similar to to whether you're talking baseball, football, basketball, if Darren Pang is on the call, feels like a a bigger game. Why do you think you have? Why do you think from the outset able to have some success? I have a lot of energy. I mean, even as even as I get older, that's never waned. Like I go into a, I go into a rink and now especially being between the benches. There's just an it's exhilarating. So I. Excited for every game. I still do. There's not one given. I think if I don't probably pack it in if I felt like I was cheating what I'm doing, I would pack it in. There's I like work with John. He's well prepared. So I know that John Kelly is going to take care of that part of it..

I watched them work with Mike Vernon who is sent down to Salt Lake, and this is where my game changed. I watched them practice after are not before our practice because we were after them. And then I knocked on visiting coaches door after our practice because he was watching ours now and I myself and I asked him if I could have the drill book that he just used with Mike Vernon. And he says, I'll make something about ten pages for me. I still have it to this day and that and those drills that change that change the way I was the way position myself how square I was how patient I was. And Wayne Thomas ended up being my goalie coach in Chicago. The year I made the hawks. So that's one of the reasons why I really made it was we, he went to bat for me, but so that's what that's what you know. You're not gonna work harder and you can stay. You can sit in the net for hundred hours, but if you're not stop it, you know working right. He was my foot position, basically my hands and my feet, and my patients and now is in order to be a small guy, I was going to have to play as big as I was going to have to play big and on top of my Chris, and I wasn't going to be able to go down prematurely like I was doing before. Did you feel like you get to the NHL without that? I don't think so. Really. I absolutely defining moment for me. No question and I still have it if is even show value in that. That's for sure. Thirty years later. When you look back on your your time with the hawks, what stands out to you about that NHL experience that you know somebody especially around Saint Louis? Yeah, so many kids are dying to get what you are able to mop Bush and work, however, many years to get to that point, man, you think about that? I think putting on you're putting on that sweater for the first time was with something else. The the first game I backed up against the Montreal Canadians, which was my favorite team growing up. So I'm, I mean, I'm literally I'm on. There was actually funny, really funny live from Larry Robinson was playing for the Canadians at this time and Larry now with the Saint Louis blues as a special advisor, and he denies that he ever said this, but in the warm up. Unbelievable. Didn't even have my last name on my sweater. Number thirty, four. No last name. And so I get in the net and I guess Larry Robinson, Doug Wilson, our good friends. They grew up in Ottawa together. And and I guess is there skating around Larry? Robinson pats on the ship has willy come over here for a second. I guess Doug skates over and he goes, who's just looking at the the the goalie says, where's the other half of them? So so man Douglas. If Doug Wilson couldn't wait to tell me where's the other half year goalie best line ever which is a great line. And so you know what going on the ice, you know, going up those stairs playing your first time in the Montreal forum for me, that was incredibly special. I love the Montreal Canadians growing up. They were. They were absolutely. I, I'm sure for a lot of baseball fans, if you're, you know, cardinals fan or Yankees fan you, you gravitate towards winners. I just they just want all the time. They are always winners. So I, I love them. Didn't like the Toronto may play. So with the first time I played maple leaf gardens, I'd played there before and major junior, I wasn't. It wasn't as much of a big deal for playing in the Boston Garden. Is just incredible. Incredible spot gave up a goal from center ice there. That was fun. Time I should have had more nightmare on that one. No question that was that was that was one for the..

"The boys would be like, rinks weren't as nice in pristine is these rinks today? I mean, you're there was a in maple leaf gardens in Toronto. You're locker room. Is there and then they the toilets are in the middle of the room. I mean, so you guys. And they're like, you know, they could see it after the warm up comeback and feeling I could feel it. I could feel it. I'm like, oh, go there. And the boys are listed in there like. Hangers, ready to go. Feeling I would imagine so. So the started as a seven-year-old was always nervous. All. Yeah, that's something I and I'm wondering if it would've changed and I think it would have if I was just if I was a forward, you know, I was a because then the attention isn't all on you. Yeah, you know what kind of feeling like, you know, like parents and everybody's, they watch games and I know how competitive is there and minor hockey, and they just look at the goalies in the goalie and you can you give up a bad goal in everybody? I mean, there was little and I don't want to look at the moment. You know, mum and dad of the kid play. You're looking the other way the the grunts and groans, and the kid comes out. Everybody's trying to tell them good game, and he knows, you know, you know, when you, you know, when you gave up such a bad bad time goal and and it's a terrible field, you really grow up and you feel like you can handle a lot in life because not many people give up. I you make good saves along the way, but, but I tell you, I remember the bad goals. I gave them like I when I retired, I woke up like haunted from some goals. I can't believe Joe Mullen score from behind the net like that, you know, or I woke up, I I, my wife so hard in the nose. Her nose blood and her eyes were watering because I was making a glove safe in in bed. And so I'm on the right side. She's on the left. My glove saves up my gloves on the left I turn, I guess I must have been having a dream in bang. I made the save and she's crying and I'm like, what happened? She goes. The know something. I made the save. Didn't make it the first time dream about it. Oh my gosh. I didn't know this. Oh my God. This is something else wicked. I hope you're enjoying our conversation with blues broadcaster. Darren, Pang here on the Tim occurred and show his guest appearance is presented by Mark Hanna of evergreen wealth strategy. So Mark is somebody who I I know, got to know about the three or four months ago at this point reached out to me wanted to sponsor the podcast had heard that we had something going here and he wanted to be associated with it. I'm flattered and so the way that it works is we meet. And I was just kind of saying what's up making sure that he was somebody I wanted to tell you about, and and then over the course of the conversation, it wound up being more me learning about his business and how he does business and then driving home. The point that, wow, I really blew it in my twenties, in my thirties, with my management of my money. And I say that not as part of the spot, I say that is truly part of my life and that. That's why for those of you listening, I really want to drive home the importance of having somebody like Mark Hanna, a financial adviser who can get you on the right track, but organiz your things. I maybe I'm wrong here, but for me sometimes it's not doing the actual task. It's dreading the task, the tilts you more. And so from that standpoint, I would rather have the peace of mind to know that I made the phone call three one four eight eight nine zero five zero three.

"And when I was six and seven, my best player in my team was a guy named Doug Smith up until I was twelve years old. I played with Doug every other year because I jumped up because he's he's older than me. And then I stayed in my age group for my second year, whatever level that was. And then another young kid Danny Quinn came up and was my teammate then. And so- Doug, Doug Smith ended up in the second overall pick of the LA kings and Danny Quinn up in the thirteenth. Overall pick of the Calgary Flames, and then Danny left to go to London Ontario. They family moved, and Steve Eisman came in and move in from from Burnaby British Columbia. So I just kind of say, wait till three players, and I ended up with Steven and Steven. I have been best friends boy for almost forty years, but I was lucky that that's how competitive our group was guys from Saint Louis. Like Dave Lowry would went to my high school played over a thousand games, Freddie Brathwaite the goals. Absolutely. When blues when he went, he went to my goal is school, and when he was like twelve and thirteen and we went to the same high school. So we've been surrounded by Jeff Brown, another sure a great Napoleon guy that that ended up so for a little small town. Like I think there was eighty thousand people. We we had a lot of really, really good years. And so is it a huge, huge part of the culture there even more so than say, other Canadian cities throughout the country. It's pretty similar. Yeah, just happened to have some kind of thing on there and he's still do to this day. You know, it's just a good minor hockey program smaller. City like Toronto's the, that would be the main hub m. t. h. l. is you can boy, you can be scouting twelve year olds right now, and you'll probably hit it right on the nose, which one's going to be a player. It's there's just so many more players there, but but it was still still a great city to grow up in in Ottawa. Were you? Were you net minder through and through from the beginning? Yeah. Yeah. I, I started as a as a forward. I love plan forward. I, in fact, I hated playing goal to be honest with you. Early on I, my dad was the goalie in one, you know, he was coaching the team and he said, why don't you give my dad call me, Joey, Joe? Why don't you wanted to give it a try? You know, I played golden. We've got some old equipment and I put on, I put on it and I had good hands. So I call it a lot of I could catch really well, and and then my dad's like a senior the best with got my, I wanna play forward. Like I like scoring goals that I played Ford and lacrosse, and and I didn't really like the feeling of given up a bad goal and letting your team down like it was an awful feeling like, you know, I just got queasy. I see. I could never eat. I was. I was really nervous. And I couldn't eat like what? A bad comedy, like seventy nine year old. I ate porridge and cream of wheat. My whole life. Oh my your in an orphanage. Else I'd feel this. So would you get sick like you actually get sick, or would you in the NHL? I got sick before every game, and it was just a disturbing feeling. Literally every game literally every game. So you knew that you were going to go like the point could listen the rumor like, oh Packers over that. Exactly. Right. The tradition anybody going, you..

"All right. Tried to putting green in my backyard. I played all the time Grant. Fuhr is the goalie coach in grant, and I played a lot of golf and he's a great player, and he's a great guy to play with who which is even more import. But he's, yeah, he's a, he was a scratch player. So I, I kind of climbed it down climbed down and it just got to a point where I was playing. So often I just put a ball on the t. and just go. And if you can drive the ball straight in the desert, you're going to be way ahead of the game, and I'm a straight driver the ball and and so I was able to get down to a lower number. I really struggled coming back here, struggle. West struggled with my carries. The ball didn't go as far, especially I play at meadow brook and a lot of the greens, even though some of the holes. Can be short. Lot of the greens were raised, and so your carry distances look, you know, you got to so you might be hitting nine iron somewhere else, but you might have to hit an eight iron here. And so it seemed like I, you know, for a while here I was like, woo. I'm not even. I'm not a six handicap playing donate, and then I got kind of going again and and got it down a little bit. You're right about the wife thing. I happened on my desktop. My laptop. I was going through picture of our one year old male. Later in the podcast. Have I have a video from my swing instructor and I said, oh, take a look at this to my wife. She goes, oh, yeah, keep please texts that to me. There's nothing more than the seat and you working with your swing instructor. Who's your instructors? Craig story Greenbrier, outstanding, total swing nerd like myself. Now that I've gotten back into the game, who do you who I didn't Asheville? You're you're, you're index. Oh, you. Seven point. Six, seven point. Six. So I can't. I can't hang eight at your clubbers at. Yeah, I think it's a nine actually. Then you're right now. Okay. So I can't hang with. You don't have a swing instructor. You're just never, really. I never. I've never. I had one. I had a lesson I when I was living in Chicago belong to Aurora country club, real good old country club into the are pro back. Then we just we hit it off. I had these custom Henry Griffiths clubs, and and I, I loved George. Knutson is a Canadian golfer. I'm one of the great swings, and this guy use the same clubs and had a little bit of a draw swing, and I just hit it off with this guy, and I ended up getting a couple of lessons with him and that was it. And I just kind of go back to if I go back to a book, I go back to, you know, watching something. I'm just a visual guy. I'll watch George Knutson. You have videos on YouTube. He's just a really good swinger the club, and it's it's a similar move that I have that I because my being so short, you've probably figured that out that I'm relatively short, listen, I can relate swing swing isn't, you know, I don't hit these high big cut, Jack Nicklaus balls. I'm a little drier. The ball most times in lower ball flight. So that's what I don't. I, I don't like taking a lesson because then I'll then I'll think of something I don't wanna be thinking. Do you think it's easier for hockey players? We always hear, oh. Oh hockey player. So he's easily going to transition into being a good golfer. Is there something to that? I agree, totally agree. I mean, you know, even I'm amazed at, you know what other, you know, running back a wide receiver. They didn't grow up, you know, facing, you know, let's let's say our bodies north and you know, we got to turn to our right, and we got it hit a shot going that way. There's something odd and peculiar about aim in. You know if you haven't done that, but hockey players, we don't shoot a puck face in north where you know we're facing that size..

"Gentlemen from the home loan expert that comes -tudios present to you. Darren, Pang Packer. Thanks so much for coming in, man. I appreciate pleasure. I, I'm looking for to talking blues upcoming season with you and then also your your career. But anytime I get a fellow golfer in here, I like to note out on love it on the game. I could talk. I could talk for seventeen hours on golf. I think all I think a lot of who are in and that's what makes golf such a great game. It's a, it's a, it's a a bug, you know, and was a couple of current Saint Louis blues. Players have have recently got the bug was recently has been out there and Alexander Steen with him this week, and he's, he's really got it going now laying, you know. So his poor wife that that didn't marry a guy that love the game of golf. Now they're, you know, now their marriage, these locked in, and he loves the game of golf and Jaden Schwartz is another one. And so these, you know, I, I just I think that there's something so fascinating about guys under pressure that. That hit a great shot. Like I think it's, you know, in our sport of hockey, it's you're right, there's there's goalies in the history of the game that could just make that one. Save that other guys couldn't. That could just make that one pass when other guys couldn't the pressure on. But when you grow up with a sport, it doesn't seem like it's pressure, but watching tiger have to hit a green or make a make a six to eight ten foot putt with everything on the line and all those eyeballs on them, and that is nerve wracking just watching it. So yeah, that's why we, we, we, we want to be really good at that game, you know, because you know, especially the players that I just mentioned have really mastered the game. A hockey is the part of the reason why you see a lot of like we've talked about Ozzie Smith, Marcus Allen these guys who are hall of famers and their sport. It replaces in some capacity, the competitive element of everyday life that that guy's such as yourself experienced from the time that you were three or four, five years old. And then when you when you stop playing your respective sport now you you gotta find some place to to have that competition. Yeah. And you're. You know, I, it's a great sport because your your body's been mangled up a little bit. I mean, for all of us that have been retired for longtime. I've got a six surgeries on my left knee. I've got knee replacement. I've got a labor Tara on my right hip that I gotta get fixed. He got an elbow problem. There's always something, but you can get on the golf course and play. You know, maybe you can't walk with your bag thirty six day, but you can certainly get out there. And I think that might be something to that. You know your, your competitive instincts, are there you want to be really good at it, but, but also you want to be with your buddies. Like I like playing golf with with my guys. I like any and it doesn't matter about gambling or doing this so that although that's that's a fun part of it is playing for something but, but it's plain with your buddies and getting on that, I t and everybody throws the balls up. And now here we go game on the smart ass comments. And and there we go roll until that's you missed the locker room a lot. When you stop playing every one of the guys would say the same thing. So that's already get your two point five, that's that's. That's legitimate. That's legitimate. What's the lowest you have been? Yeah, I was. I was scratching in living in Arizona. When I when I when ESPN lost the rights to the NHL in two thousand five, I got that that phone call from an executive producer that said, hey. You know, we're all out. We, we don't have hockey. I, we're going to keep Barry Melrose on the set, but everybody else is free to go. And so you know, I got a phone call from from Mike Barnett who is Wayne's agent at the time. And then Wayne called and said, he's going to coach the coyotes. And he said, would you consider coming here and and being are broadcaster. And I said, yeah, I consider it..

"Iggy in videographer, Nick ill, great to have you in for Mark Hanna of evergreen, wealth strategies, presentation of Darren Pang as we enter into hockey season here in Saint Louis. I have wanted to get Panger on the program just because I knew it would be instant offense eases to guy that, you know, I was just telling gangster Pete. As a matter of fact, you set somebody up like they're paying with a question and you know, you're going to get the best answer. Just first off, he's entertaining, like chaser can tell great stories, and then you know he's a broadcaster so he he gives you what you want and then some. So you get plenty of what you want and even more so loved the conversation. As I say, I'm a, I'm a parody of myself. I don't know. I don't know if. I'm going to say when I don't like one, that would be awkward, but this was one, you know, I can tell like the boys are in here the producers and Nick, and you can tell from the response that they enjoyed the conversation. If your blues fan, you'll love this. Plus, I think you'll also enjoy the history hangers playing career. You know, he's kind of like Tony LaRussa in the sense that he downplays you know his ability, but if you made it to the NHL he played for the Blackhawks you had to have some game. And so that was a focal point in addition to, of course, talking about this upcoming season for the blues and his time is blues broadcaster and all the fun and games that have come throughout both his NHL playing career nece NHL broadcasting career, including a little fun fact that I was not aware of that Panger had a little issue every time before he would play an NHL game. You will hear that in addition to much much more coming up in this interview. It's all made possible by our sponsors, and I. Can't drive.
