"Look at McDavid out in Edmonton, like they have to him draisaitl and they struggle to make the playoffs every so you have that then you go to New Jersey that any the year. He he went off. He he basically carried them to the playoffs and then he goes to Arizona which is a horrible situation and then he goes to Buffalo like do you expect that? He's going to go they're they're going to come these winning teams know so that's why I was listening to felger & Mazz just bash wage. Taylor Hall and how he's never one anywhere and it's like well, yeah, he's never went anywhere because he's never been anywhere with anybody good around him. So this is the first the first time he has real teammates and a real team with real culture and you know U Mass culture right there boom can't can't forget to check that out. If only you if only the Bruins had Carville is coach then then, you know stay need to be endless but no, I do think this is right situation and then the other two deals Mike Riley, you know, I see no problem with that deal and Curtis Lazar as a death be so long. That is what the Bruins did at this deadline now for the rest of the division. Do you think now here's the million-dollar question? Do you think these deals Elevate the Bruins month past the Penguins past the capitals past the Islanders if they played them in the play-offs, but when they play one of them in the playoffs, yeah, I mean, I think it's all going to come down to health this seem. You get rash back healthy and you don't have to worry about that injury, you know popping back up. If you get Kalo back and Grill Lake and not going then we're in a much better spot and I want to mention, you know, Andrae Crouch. It's just terms of we don't really know if he's going to be back if he's able to if he was able to come back like much I'd also just helps boost your options in terms of you know, your middle 6, but I'm not going to put pressure on a guy who's obviously seems like he's really dealing with concussion issues. So but if you get back healthy, I do see how this scene isn't right in the mix there..

"Like you're the capitals right now who gave up a first Verana and you know, legitimate pieces Franti mantha like you you didn't give up much here. You give a third of 2nd and unders if you are cool again was never going to get his shot here, you know every month to him to probably go to Seattle, at least I did and get his shot there and instead he gets in Buffalo now to me I just look at this as the best case scenario is so much better than the worst case scenario is the worst case scenario. Isn't that bad? I mean like you filled holes on this team without giving much up and as a GM, I think that's the best thing you can do. I said this to you last night. I've never seen dogs sweet, you know, someone's life over reading go from like 14% to 94% less fan of like 30 minutes, but it did because again like and and we'll get into this where Taylor Hall should fit in this lineup cuz I think we agree Mike Riley should be a table for Thursday at least especially right now number one might be talking right now. Maybe run to that power play Tuesday night but or tonight when people listen but let's let's get into this a little bit off for a guy like Taylor Hall. I think he's he's going to play with crazy to start. I think that that's pretty obvious. He's going to play with David krejci to start now to me and you mentioned this to me there on the like, oh, well, we recorded or after the high danger passes. Yes, he's second in the NHL correct with the first first first in the NHL with us for high danger passes wage. For for those who don't maybe understand I danger you means you're just getting pucks to high danger areas. So really comes down to if you're playing with good guys, you play with good players. They're going to finish those chances obviously in Buffalo that not a lot them. By the way, you can see middle sad. It's not a that's not an established sniper. If you look at some of the guys he was dragging around on those lines. How about the Buffalo just like getting killed off those press conferences on Monday morals. Well, and again pretty much Kevin Adams speaking afterwards is more or less. Like maybe fleece isn't the right term. But with Taylor Hall surely, you know incorporating that no move Claus think I might have the hands tied, right? That's I'm sure who knows if you know tail he'll didn't have a first-round. Do you have a movement Claus would the capitals or someone who gave up that first pick where they move it for a guy like Taylor Hall. You think it's a possibility, right? So yeah. Yep. It kind of stuck with yeah, the Islanders like they were kind of been stuck between a rock and a hard place in terms of getting returned. So Buffalo continues to take owls. I mean, it's it is it is truly run out of there and it's not cuz again, they they they really had no choice with this. This was the only deal they could make a call only one come here. It also sounds like he wanted to sign here long-term in the off-season and it was Sweeney and the Bruins who said no way that we're not doing long-term here and even you know, he just recording..

Should Don Sweeney Be on the Hot Seat?

"You think that. Don sweeney on the hot seat or he should be the hot seat. I don't think this year i think right now. It's i think. I agree that it's kinda the lowest of the low right now in terms of where the team is up. But also you know. I don't wanna make excuses Cut down to the fact you know regardless of what teams dealing with. You shouldn't have to have a third period. Rallied to beat the sabres and as much people wanna complain about. Those two goals getting called off in the last minute of the game against the devils. Let's be let's be. Let's face it like you shouldn't be in untarred. Anyway against a team like the doubles. Be it the fact that mackenzie black wedding has an eight six. Two eight nine two. Save percentage i think against Everything except the bruins where he has a nine six to save percentage The fact that you power play a can't score against the devils waiting twenty eight in the league in. pk you know that's an issue. That's compounding the problems. The fact that even the power play going from elite still pretty good is not good enough which is show you the margin of error that this team has when they're scoring in You know producing at all really

And again you said it this makes that Twenty Nineteen Cup loss that much worse because this guy would have not only had the COP but hit on Robert Thomas would be you know. It'd be in Boston or same with Charles playing through broken job but crew Robert Thomas I mean it'd be statues of it. There'd pictures in bars there it would be incredible and and that loss. He doesn't get that and he it stinks because he should have got there are two things it would have been awesome to see him getting Boston. AQAP. In money and right now, the Bruins are not in a position to offer him a long-term deal with that kind of money because he's in that weird crew that's not the veteran corps and is it the next generation near the Veteran Corps Berge on marshawn Chara Krejci Rask's, and then you have the younger core of mcevoy posture knock debrosse. End Cruise kind of in the middle and you saw coils the same age or close to it, and they only gave five years. This past year.

Go, get it somewhere else go get the bag somewhere else and go win somewhere else because I don't think I. Don't think by year four, five I don't know if the bruins are still going to be contenders in the same way they are now. So I think going somewhere else. it's good for my back right in. It's definitely going to be interesting to see what the Bruins do this off season because it sets the stage for years to come like art. Are we going to kick the can and like say, Hey, we're gonNA, go younger like we've had our last. Real chances at a cup run like.

"It. He's such a rare breed. You don't see a lot of them anymore. But I mean just what a freaking leader and what a just a total freak. So I think a guy that you look back when he finally does retire and I think everyone knew from like let's say from like, you know, 062 2012-2013, whatever everyone knew how great of a player he was right a perennial Norris Trophy candidate. But like I think you're going to look back at that runny head and just you know, feel like you then he was underrated in terms of what like the fact that he only one Norris Trophy for guy who you can make cases. Maybe the best dog. One-on-one shut down guy in the league like this other obviously greater defenseman in terms of everything they could do but just in terms of defensive stop or what he the minutes. He logged, you know deleted play on the foul play obviously anchoring a peek just a freak of what he was during his prime. Like I think people take it for granted. Just how damn good he was. Oh, yeah, like he has ever really been fast. No, but he's made in every sense of the word and the fact that this sounds really stupid. But the fact that he's even able to stickhandle. It's six 9 on skates to me was always impressive. It doesn't make sense. makes no physical sense, but there's anything about it, but it's just keeps going to play at least 57 Connor.

Just you know looking back off. Last year looking forward and I think you know, she probably getting a few more zoom calls with, you know, either players or management in the next couple of days, hopefully, so especially once we talk to Don Sweeney, I think you should have a good idea of kind of their outlook for this upcoming offseason cuz as we've said multiple times they gotta make some moves so they'll be a whole bunch of stuff to dive deep into so we'll have stuff on Boston's home, And again, I'll be here with you Evan at some point this week breaking down kind of what lies ahead Sounds like a plan.

"I'm Cameron close by the way Scott Wheeler works for the athletic. He does prospects. He likes the Kings prospects and we've got a good solid interview with him. He was really interesting guys. We did this interview. A few weeks ago, and it's one of my favorites we've done as far as I know sometimes, we get off topic, which is probably all the time on here but we did you know it's a hard hitting hockey interview to Santa least we stayed on topic, but we still hit a variety of topics. It just kind of flowed really well talked about a couple of the experiences he's had. Some of the more interesting stories covered working at the athletic and obviously large of the interview spent on covering not just the current kings prospect pool, but also one or more of the players who might be added to that pool come October. So very good interview. Excited to get to. It Will Zach I. Feel like a fool because. You know we poked fun of it at the Ahl's return to play Strategic Task Force. But today a big announcement coming out that the League may play on December fourth in in all seriousness. I just. It's really you know Kinda just. Pushing things down the road a bit but it's nice to see a date on the H.. L. Dot com here that basically the announcement today as. The anticipated start is going to be December fourth they're saying we're not gonNA play me for that. But in an ideal world, if everything goes to plan were playing games on December four doesn't say anything about crowds, fans anything like that but it's something I guess I'll take something. So I while we're still jesting strategic was not included in the age els press release it was just the return to play taskforce. So I don't know if his day podcast Donald is a different task force that was unpublished or if they just dropped the name. Maybe not focus on strategy but either way that was the group that that brought us here today and like you said it's it's good to see something I mean this isn't we're going to be dropping the puck on December fourth book get set in stone and I think it'd be foolish to speculate on anything else regarding the age L. schedule right now but it's still nice just to see that. Okay. The NHL announced tentative December first start date that's a Tuesday it would make sense that the age I would start the following Friday as of right now that's the plan. Just one more on the strategic task force. How many times to? To, get to this December fourth date. How many times do you think kyle do? Can Hall and David Poile Don Sweeney Steve, is how many times do you think they're on the phone talking about this like maybe once After imagine. Health read like yes. Sounds good. Got I. Mean these guys with the exception of is every one of those guys has a team competing for the Stanley Cup so many times you. They were really worried about this. Deeply engaged in the return of maybe maybe the. Maybe, those guys were the strategic element and then they just they dipped on the call so that they had to drop it from the name I. Don't know but we have to imagine the that they have a bigger things going on right now than you know a a no earlier than date yet lately. I'm sure a lot of a lot of these guys like you've got the Gym Brooks the owner, the phantoms. Tear. Black. Tie Prejudice. Like you have a bunch of team presence I know our team president dared avid is on on those Li calls all the time in they're trying to figure things but I'm just talking about the general manager Don Sweeney I don't think is like well, we gotta get this December birthday locked in guys I can't do anything I can't even have a conversation with our coaching staff about these playoffs before that some just something I'm I'm thinking of it's something. You have to you take it with a grain of salt that could very well get pushed back but again, it's just nice to see a date. We don't know anything about vans. No one knows anything. So credit credit to the AHL, the League office singing outlets put something out there at least now you have something to shoot for everybody knows how tenuous everything is you know I nobody knows what they're APP for lunch next week. Let alone when the first AHL game is going to be played for the twenty twenty, twenty, one season. So at least they're putting something out there I'll give him that the and saying, okay, let's at least have something to shoot for. Probably, a chicken sandwich with spicy brown mustard American cheese toasted bread you've been into lately. I told you sandwich guys like that'll probably be have for lunch next week. So I guess some of us do now but tips and tricks on. Any who you know it's it's good news. It's encouraging. It's it's not a it's not anything. It's not written in maybe race bullpen, but it's good to it's good to have some kind of news in. July about. This upcoming season which was. Entirely question marks until this point. Zach. You that I wasn't going to be too interested in the exhibition games of hockey. You know what I was Kinda right like they haven't done too much for me. I flipped on what's really done it for me is baseball and you know we've talked a baseball gag I can watch a good amount of of any baseball game that's on. If I'm in the right mood if I WANNA relax Gouge Watch nine innings, it doesn't bother me watch them. I watch angels and Mayor Owners last night it was a good game and then I, watched. Dodgers an astros which was awesome. That's a joke. By the way I know we're not a baseball podcast but I, you know dodgers world. Guy, who doesn't really have any affiliation to the dodgers whatsoever I'm a red SOx Fan I'm a I'm a baseball fan in Joe Kelley getting suspended for eight Games is. Talk about trying to destroy the game the American out. So Kelly exciting happening in the game forget about the Astra's doing all that he made a face. He didn't even hit a guy he made a face. Off drives me. Crazy they're. Getting rid of younger fans Trinidad would have gotten zero games. Like the think about stuff that we complain about that were like. Who Cares that? He did that in the end zone after he scored a touchdown like whatever celebrating? Yeah it's a little bit Maybe PG thirteen, some of the stuff that we've seen in the end zone dances but those guys don't even get suspended he made a face. Who Cares so stupid. But it's great to have sports back. That's beside the point. Have you been watching a lot of the NHL has been something else catch your attention? I've been more on baseball as well I I got anxious fans I got the amount of market for like the first time ever. So I bought the Yankees MLB TV subscription so I can watch the Games. Out which is pretty cool definitely watching more MLB. Than anything right now but I I flipped on you know a few periods here there of the NHL Exhibition Games by their own admission. They're saving the the real stuff. You know the big stuff in the broadcast. For, the weekend after Saturday's returned to play. We'll probably talk about a few of those a little bit later in the Pod, but you know it was it was good players looked relatively up to speed it wasn't you know your first game, a preseason level hockey it was better than that in my opinion though I just watched him few periods of a couple of games. Yeah. No there's definitely competitions a fight last night one of the game. So it's definitely fiery and get everyone's excited to see I just can't wait till the actual these qualifying around start I am going to be all over that I wanNA watch everyone I can't wait that's going to be excellent..

"But either way, let's move onto GM of the year. The three finalists were Don wa Dell from Carolina Doug Armstrong, who was going to be joining us in just a little bit here on spitting. Check, let's Stanley Cup coupling, general manager happy to have him. And also Don Sweeney from Boston in, Don Sweeney from Boston one. He was the first Bruins win since the debuted in twenty ten I thought he also gave a really nice speech where he mentioned, his his two sons who are born prematurely, they will a pound and a half when they were born, and he said he his inspiration, the see the way they fought life. And he's kind of followed his kids in also gave a nice shuttle to his wife. She was pretty mostly in the audience. It was just a real nice, kind of ten. Moment that we got to see on TV. I don't know if you're able to see it or not this. Yeah. As soon as he got up and hugged his wife, I could sense, like there was like it was something bigger than the award because she was very emotional about right away, gorgeous woman, as well. He walked up. And then when he said that, you know man, there was a lot of emotional moments there. And I, you guys know me I get a little sensitive, and I, I was crying a lot tonight. Trying to keep her keeper in there. But all all every, every every, every finalist, very deserving to win that, I think considering his team to the best and regular season, he had some work to do. Dave used thirty seven players during the course of that season, and, which is very interesting. So that shows that they have a lot of depth as well on the developments there as well as in providence. So I thought, very, very deserving. Doug Armstrong who, who didn't end up getting the nod I thought made some very stellar moves this off season. I think maybe the start of the season is what, what probably didn't win him the award. But I don't really think he. Considering one Haughey's ultimate prize. Yeah. And it's crazy. Other the other guy that was up for this award. Donald L. I mean, the whole summer the question was, who's going to take over and Carolina. And there's a lot of people off the job to turn it down people took their names out of the makes it was kind of a gun show, because the rumors flying around about the new owner, and what he expected and wanted, and what things we're going to be like, but man, this guy came in, or he'd already been there. Right. And he took over and just did a great job that team there. There was a lot a lot there. But the run they went on it's just kind of the beginning. I mean they get a lot of young studs. They're all was so good lot of great players. So those guys, it's funny these GM's do they'll be up for wards like this team has a great year. They've a couple of grades signings or trades, and then two years later, you look and their jobs in question. It's crazy. How this goes, it's very similar to coach of the year. But for this for this season, I mean these guys that, that a hell of a job and like, like, we just mentioned, Doug Armstrong, he's joining us in and he got the ultimate price. Yeah. So it's been pretty great year for all these guys. Still having said that biz when you mentioned how it's emotional, I think that even though the whole show is like corny, and there's there's factors in it where they're trying to make you laugh, and it can kinda get awkward. It's still people, you know, having their dreams come true like, right? On the fact that, you know, you can win an MVP award or Norris trophy at something you've always dreamed of a I could totally understand a lot of motion that night. Yeah, we'll talk more other words and how life changing they are to some of these guys on going back to Doug Armstrong, you mentioned. He is coming on for an interview there was a slight issue with the audio..

"Like they've had some people who've been consistent behind the scenes to harass trade that was his, I believe, as well. They've guys like Scott, Bradley Neely Don Sweeney was behind the scenes for a while. You know, Keith Gretzky was there for a while. My first year at hockey night. Ryan NATO was doing media relations. And now he's in the scouting department like he's been there for a long time. And then, you know, John Ferguson came over there from San Jose. And it was under his watch that they brought in Kuraly in the Jones deal. And I believe he was also pretty keen on Connor Clifton. They bring in guys who behind the scenes, or they've had guys there for a long time behind the scenes who find players no matter who the GM is they've always worked hard at. It John Ferguson. I think was pretty instrumental in the Charlie McEvoy peck as well that the way when Boston because there were two players at Boston wanted in that draft. Both were defensemen was Dante Fabra or Charlie McEvoy and the Ferguson's and the mcevoy's lived on the same streets. When I see senior was with the Rangers. And so he knew the family, so I think he was instrumental in that pick. I wonder if I've always liked the Ferguson's left us that then they go. All right. So here we go moving on here on the thirty one thoughts anything else to add to Saint Louis or Boston or should we move on. No good series. Okay. You have been a lot of fun and we look forward to, to more of it. You reported on Saturday on headlines on hockey night in Canada. Eric Carlson, and the San Jose Sharks. Decision time soon. Here's what happened. Like I wrote in my notes last week that we believe that he was going to test free agency, and he wanted to see what Tampa could do. And I got a call on Saturday from somebody who said to me, you better look into this, because the word at the combine was that San Jose had some. I don't know of confidence of the right is the right word or belief is the right word that they were going to get it done. Now Doug Wilson did not get to the combine until late. I haven't spoken to him, so I don't know. But you know we've talked about Doug Wilson before the closer, he hates it when I use the word salesman, but he is a good salesman like he believes San San Jose. And you believe in their organization when he wants someone more often than not he gets man. So what someone said to me is you better. Look in on Carlson, because something is going on. And the information I was given was that he is going through a process right now. I don't know of San Jose has an offer on the table or he knows what it would be. I would assume he pretty knows what he's going to make if he stays in San Jose. And he asked me a decision I think they've asked them to make it known this week because if he doesn't stay they have to move on to some other things. And I'm told that Carlson will make his decision this week. And what one player in the league told me who I think knows Carlson. Well, is that you're not wrong about Carlson being interested in Tampa Bay, the what if it doesn't happen, when if they can't make cap space will, what if for whatever reason, Tampa Bay can't make it work or big O sideways, like what's Mike Tyson's old-line everyone's gonna plan until you get punched in the face..

"And you're seeing this some of the franchises that didn't put their money in the Dominican and Cuban. Some of those markets really hurting from it out of the White Sox gotten a lot of trouble because they're Dominican, scouting director. Excellent. Was heavily bribed and then made the fire, and you know they, they set themselves back several years though. It's just not thinking that fresh talent and and also not creating the pipeline for future talent. You know, I mean, a lot of these guys from other countries wanna follow some of their countrymen for good reason just for sheer comfort and you know, it's since he back and I think the cubs that was a major factor. I think the, oh, when first to say that that was a huge, huge feather in their cap going in and one that they've continued exploit. But like you say, I mean, they're going to, it's going to be an international after slotting system or something along those lines that teams can't continue to to have certain advantages because you're right, that is an enormous loophole. That's finally slowly being closed. All right. Let's talk about. You know, we talked about chip Kelly a little bit earlier, and today we got news on official as it may be, but I Don Sweeney came out and said, Shawn, Watson, Wayne galman, Mike Williams, and our TV Scott are going. Be taking part in the team senior day festivities because this is going to be there last year on campus. It's not official yet, but it's going to happen. Those four guys will head to the NFL draft. When we talk about a guy like the Shawn Watson, you know, could this be that guy the chip Kelly's been bleeding for for civil. Boy, that's that's an interesting one. Assuming that the forty Niners will be in that top for position where he's kind of hovering around there. It's possible. But at the same time, you know, just the way I don't know. I don't feel like I would, but break the Bank with an with a high pick on the guy like to Shawn Watson early in the first round. I don't know about you, but he just doesn't strike me as if chip is waiting for to strike finally on a quarterback and he's taken this long. It just doesn't feel like the draft to do it. He doesn't seem like the guy to do it with personally to be, and you know, maybe he will, but it it just don't see that man. I, I don't think that Watson is is is kind of player as far as having the accuracy and precision that you need to check that defense. So quickly. I don't know. What do you think about that? I couldn't agree with you more. I have never understood the hype around Shawn Watson, this guy. I. Think that his absolute upside in the NFL if everything goes perfect is he's kind of Donovan McNabb and I don't know that I'm taking a guy with a number one number two pick in the draft who might turn out to be Donovan. McNabb is everything goes right? I just don't see it. I mean, this was the odds on presumptive favorite to be the number one pick into the year. Never made sense to me. Then granted is something of a a down year for top talent in the draft is if your name isn't Myles, Garrett or Jonathan Allen and co. I just never saw it. This quarterback classes unbelievably lacking in my mind. If you're interested in a quarterback, you know, wait till next year when you have, I think Kaiser stays in school. So let's how next year you're going to have in that situation. You know, you have a more Jackson, you have, Josh Rosen, Rosen. You have to Sean Kaiser, Jake Browning. Let me tell you why I was at the California golden bears Washington huskies for football in this weekend. I sat in the front row. I sat in the front row with a bunch of my significant other's PHD cohorts. So it was a an interesting rowdy time..
