"Yeah, maybe the best player in hockey is this Asian American kid, this Filipino 23 year old. And my mind continues to be just lying all over the floor in a million pieces. Because of that. But at the very end, there is one more piece that I need from you. Because I know, look, you have a hockey nickname capper that's been established on this program before. Does Jason Robertson have a nickname that is suitable? Do we need to give him one? Where is he on that front? You know, I feel like it is my duty at this company to hype up hockey players. And as creative as they are on the ice, I find them to be more creative off the ice in a lot of times. And there is some great hockey nicknames out there. There's a rookie with a Montreal Canadiens right now. Arbor Jack guy, the last name is so hard to spell its ex HE, K, AJ, and probably messing it up that his teammates call him Wi-Fi because it looks like a Wi-Fi code. Oh, that's good. That's real good. So it is my pleasure to report to you that Jason also has a creative end. In my opinion, beyond acceptable nickname in the star's locker room around the league, he is a robo. Yeah, there's no improving on that. Yeah, no, robo is great. Robo is automatic, robo is a machine, and robo is also my new favorite hockey player of all time. So Emily Kaplan, thank you for truly introducing me to his story. I appreciate you covering the topic in this excellent player in my sport and all I have to say is Salomon. Maraming salamat, thank you very much, and yeah, at this point, we now got to go get lechon, Emily. It's kind of like the pork roll of the Philippines, so I think you might enjoy it. You want me to go eat delicious Filipino food? Say less Pablo, I'm there. So until then, I and Pablo Torre, this has been ESPN daily. I don't talk to you tomorrow.

"Where Devers and bogarts and JD and all these guys should be hitting a lot better than they are story, but they're not because they're pressing because they know that they have to score 5 runs a game in order to be a playoff team this year. It's a psyche thing, especially in that sport and when you're in the course of a 162 games a long, long haul, it's definitely something that I think is standing out with this team right now. Let me add one more thing because we've had a raiders fan in the chat kind of bugging people all day. I told them to go away a couple minutes. It was a fumble. And you talk about your franchise like it's some, you know, blue blood NFL chip. How does it feel that the city of Oakland didn't think you guys were worth investing in to keep around? So there you go. Just came for the jugular there, my goodness. You lock the team. I kind of like the Raiders. I like their roster this year. I like that team. I'm the only one who doesn't have them finishing in last in the AFC west. I am in third. Chargers still have math coach, but I actually like the Raiders too, and I actually like Josh McDaniels. I switched the background back to patriots, 'cause now we're talking football again. I actually like Josh McDaniels the second time around to. Like I actually think that he might have it figured out and he's got Dave ziegler upstairs with him to kind of help him out with the roster. So I think that the Raiders are in a really good spot and I agree. I think they're going to be competitive in that division too. But we can talk about that on another show. Maybe we'll do around the AFC around the NFL show at some point here before the start of training camp and talk about some of these other opponents. As I mentioned on Thursday, schedule release for the entire NFL, I urge all of you to not look too much into any leaks between now and Thursday. If you see what's already won out there. Yeah, if you see leaks on Thursday, then those I think are legitimate, but well, it's just who they're from. NFL schedule leaks on Twitter where the schedules are three. I don't know if they're from Jeff Howe if they're from Mike Reese and they're from Doug Hyde, if they're from us. Those make a little more sense. Fair enough. So I would hold off on any scheduling things till Thursday, but hopefully by four or 5 o'clock on Thursday. What do we got? You put the other banner back up real quick. Okay, one second, one second. Emily Kaplan, who's ESPN's oh, do we have good news?.

"Of energy and we need him at this point of the year. And then like you said, Friday, Emily Kaplan and Jesse grant, you both come out and said he's getting seasoned surgery. You know, he hurt his knee by first Philly, gave it all he could, but the body finally gave out. Then Dubois like those reports on accurate my knowledge, it was a maintenance day. I expect him to practice tomorrow. I expect him to dress Sunday. Then on Saturday, the team released a statement, which is unusual for a team to release a statement to say a guy is not going to be practicing taking a maintenance day. And then Sunday, he backed up Thompson. So that was that. And then today, Mike, you just sent me the tweet, he's getting surgery. So the ash closed that I'm down. So it's just been this whole cluster fucking meaning the other day he wasn't getting it and now he is getting it. I don't know, man. You wonder what's going on? Especially after they already gave away mock Andre flurry. They just got rid of a salary. They didn't even get anything back from them. They stick Elena, and then they just kind of fucking went Lenny. So on Thursday, on Thursday he told the team, he's getting shoulder surgery. And the doctor looked at him and agreed that that's what should happen, right? And on Saturday, then the team said, can you just push this back a day and back up Sunday? Because of cap implications or something. Citations, I don't really know exactly what that meant or if I'm even wording it right. But when I say chaos, there's no better description for not just the season, but the goaltending situation. And now, so what I read and what I can tell is the vagus fans hate the boar and they hate Leonard. It's like, I think they look at the fact that a lot of them still think gallant was completely unfairly let go. And maybe it wasn't fair the way it happened, but divorce had some success there. And then they look at the goaltender. They probably would have rather have kept flurry than Leonard. Now the issue being Leonard's got three more years at 5 million. And I think if you really dislike him as a Vegas fan because of kind of the antics and I shouldn't even say antics, but there seems to always be something going on with Robin lehner, right? I mean, he doesn't seem like somebody as quiet as Mark Andre flurry in terms of going about his business. Do you guys know what I'm saying when I say that? I just think sometimes if something's not to your liking, certain guys certainly hold it in a lot better than others. And he doesn't. He voices his opinion, which is fine, but ultimately, if it happens over time enough, you know, there's a lot of tension that does build and it seems like some you mentioned maybe some frustration towards Leonard from the fan base and also Deborah. There's also, there's also friction, but it seems between them. It seems big time. It seems. And once again guys, we're just going off of snippets and stuff and kind of the feel out process. Like, I'm not one to dig and ask that questions behind the scenes. I'm not an insider. But it's just been absolute chaos and I think that from a league standpoint and you already mentioned it easily and as well, the consensus is this is the most hated team and they've only been in existence the last three, four years. So a little bit more. Oh, yeah? Yeah. I don't know, man. You think so? Maybe this year it's closed people are getting sick of Vegas, but people hate the leafs. I was going to say about Leonard though, he has been injured all year pretty much. So in terms of worrying about the actual goal thing and his number since he came back from injury, which had been pretty bad, I mean, he's been battling through injuries. So he's able to go and he's getting the shoulder surgery and next year, I mean, you're going to get a healthy Robin Leonard, hopefully as long as surgery goes okay. So I wouldn't really worry about the type of goaltender he is, although I do look at Leonard and I kind of think of a goalie who would is a great tandem goalie, right? And not necessarily a true number one who's carrying the sterkin is the number one Georgia is a great backup. Whereas in Boston, say, I'm just thinking of teams with two goalies, right? You have swimming, you have all Mark. Minnesota right now has flurry. They have towel, but it's, I think of Leonard is one of those goalies. Do you know what I forgot Toronto with a cauldron in California? Well, I don't think you guys have a clue what's going on in Toronto and that. I mean, I wouldn't even consider that on a level of other teams goaltending. It's like, I mentioned. Okay. Fair enough. Yeah. Okay, cool. But it is wild to see the disconnect between a head coach and a goalie who is such an important part of the team where he's saying he's done for the year and the coach is blatantly going against him saying, no, he's completely fine. It's like I've never really seen that where either the team didn't tell the board that Leonard's getting surgery and that he's really injured or he knows and he's like, no, I don't believe it, basically. So it is a wild scenario to see how it's all played out. Not to mention the fact that they've been clawing and fighting just trying to get in the playoffs, which I think right now somebody said online, it's a 15% chance they get in. It would take a miracle for them to get in at this point. Well, everybody's listening to this on Tuesday. Biggest game of the year between both teams. Tonight..

"All right, Jack Hughes of the New Jersey Devils on joining us on The Rain Drake's podcast. And Jack, we just talked about this off air, but it feels like you've been doing a lot of media, including an unbelievable feature of Emily Kaplan and ESPN. There was a lot of information for us to digest in that feature and speaking of digesting how have you been chirped? If you've been chirped at all for some of the content of that interview, looking for broccoli recipes, any of that sort of thing? I mean, no, obviously that was, I think I haven't even watched it, actually. I was there the whole time, so I kind of know what's going on, but yeah, I heard it went really well and you know, I don't know if that's happened in hockey a lot, you know, like features like that, so I thought that was pretty cool to be one of the first guys to get that opportunity and obviously with ESPN and they like my personality and obviously my game is picking up. So it's a good opportunity and it was a fun day. So I think it went really well. You know, Jack you know, you play and you have such great flair to your game and we thought with Trevor's egress earlier and there seems to be out of that development program in the U.S.. Like I just see like there's so much character out of that and flair and creativity. Does this part of that come from how they coach you there or as part of it just the way you guys are? I don't know, you know, I would say, especially our team, like we just had a bunch of beauties on our team, just good guys. Guys you like hanging around. You know, we loved being at the rink in terms of the on ice and the creativity what you're talking about. On the ice for two hours practice and then probably 45, 30 minutes after practice too. So that was a team that loved playing hockey. And you know, obviously, it's some special players and guys with a lot of passion and a lot of different personalities, you know? So it was a really fun team and it wasn't a cocky team, but it was for sure a really confident and fun team stuff. I think that translate and carried over that man, that's got to be way more fun than to just grind through a boring practice again to have guys that haven't fun while you're doing it, right? Oh, yeah, I'll tell you that. At the program, it was all that competition based. You know, it was all games, always blue versus red one one team loses one team wins, you know? So there's less Latino playing every other day, you know? You can't do that competitiveness on a daily basis, but at the program, it was just extremely fun practicing because we're getting better, we're enjoying and you're laughing out there and smiling the whole time. You know, that's the culture. I think we want to create New Jersey where we all come to the rank and enjoy it and love it and obviously it's along season with ups and downs, but we gotta enjoy practice and enjoy the game. Seeing a bunch of videos from you guys you and your brothers when you're young and your tooling around out on the ice or your fiddling around in a basement playing play in the hockey or whatever. Was it kind of the same there? Were you guys always competing against each other? In the.

"We'd have to come up with the new themes along london. Roll out the old and but people jimmy. I remember the day we lost it. I mean they were. There were tears in bristol. It was really emotional and outta be back on the other side. Welcome it back but yes. The players are really happy. The league is really happy. And it's it's a great marriage right. It's great sport is really fast is different from what we had at the last time. But it's really fast skill level off charts and you know what what you talking about eyeballs stuff. There's just so many different ways you could do hockey broadcasts. There really is right. So the big difference to me is the intermissions and the pre and the post and the promotion. That's how we can make a difference. I mean how many different ways can you actually broadcast the hockey games. Three or four. But you can do a lot of other things around the game and the promotion is a big piece. We are twenty four seven. And i think that's were hockey. Wins by coming back to yesteryear. Yeah i mean it sort of you know you say that it makes me think of the nba on tnt. I mean regular season nba regular season. Nhl are not things you have to be in front of the tv to watch when the are in front of espn plus streaming now. And isn't it. I mean regular season. Nhl regular season nba mlb accent as well. But that's a that feels different but those two sports. I mean like you said you could do those intermissions. You can do a lot of different things you have the time. Have the leeway it perfect for. You know sort of experimenting thing. That's like what is it. A five hour window on thursday nights the dollar right and i love ernie dangle on like two in the morning but that's it and then you'll see him again. You know we're still going like we finished monday night. Sports that are three. Get up in the morning like so enter. That's where we can really help the. Nhl released him any property that we know that we have. And like i said i. I'm not gonna sit here and ask you like hardcore hockey cushions.

"Okay, so we've talked to bruss. We've talked Swann. I want to get into a little bit of the new broadcast because again, we mentioned it's only been one game for the bruins, but there's been multiple national broadcasts. Obviously, ESPN and Turner now have the rights instead of NBC. We saw ESPN on Tuesday night of last week, which was like the opening night. It was what? It was lightning and rain. The lightning and the lightning and penguins was actually I'm thinking of Turner. Lightning. And then it was cracking in Vegas. Cognitive, which was way better game. It was bad. That was a horrible. Horrible, horrible fan. It was the whole thing. And then the next night Turner was caps rangers caps and Blackhawks. Abs Blackhawks. That's the first time we saw the Blackhawks just debacle. But I was watching. Yeah, I was watching the new broadcast. I wanted to see what do I like? What do I not like? My overall thoughts from both as I like both. I enjoy that it's on ESPN. I like that it's on Turner. We'll start with ESPN. It felt so professional when they did it really well. Kevin weeks is awesome during the initial. Kevin Kevin cone. Linda Cohn, and Kevin weeks are great together during the intermission. I like booty grass a lot. So I just enjoyed the broadcast. Did you have any thoughts from ESPN one? Yeah, no, I thought as you said, professional informative, good personality, said Emily Kaplan was awesome during the broadcast instead of literally we didn't have to listen to where a guy went to the USA channel because she got actual insight. We heard what people were saying on the bends. Like, actual information to an actual game, which is very refreshing. Yeah, I think both shows are both broadcast are very, very good. ESPN as much as I think people will see what happens when they get into more of the ESPN+ broadcast cloud. I feel like that's just going to really confuse people at first. So I think you have to navigate that hurdle because as much as I think ESPN is being very upfront like, don't forget, this is what you have to do. I know when we get to bronze games, especially I'm going to have people tweeting at me or having questions about it, which is understandable. It's definitely something in terms of pitching like, no, you need to get no, it's not ESPN. You have to subscribe to get this broadcast as well. That would be a.

"And Linda, what a week it was, we kicked off the NHL season. We were both at an NHL opener. I was at the early game. You were at the late game. We had a chance to get on the phone and dissect a little bit, but we didn't get into all of it. So we saved it for the podcast. You're welcome people. Yeah, I mean, it was great. Now I'm like going through withdrawal because every night I want to be at a hockey game. I know. Is that wrong? No, it's one of those things where I was done and I was itching, and I was like, okay, can I do this tomorrow? Okay, when especially between the benches, it was just so cool to be in that action and that atmosphere. I unfortunately was at the lightning game. It just didn't have the same atmosphere as your game. So I'm a little jealous that Vegas was the better show. Let's face it, it was a dud. And I was totally shocked by that quality of play in that game. But no, nothing against the penguins. They came to play at least one team did. But I get all that, but wait a minute. Between the benches, okay? You are outstanding. Although I was in Vegas and the sound was down, but you look great. And I know you were saying something significant because you're Emily Kaplan and you always do. And you leave that little something for the viewers to just ponder. But I want to know what it was like. I mean, I know you're rehearsed and everything you told me, hey, Linda, I got the rehearsal Tampa blah, blah, blah, blah. You know, I never I never got that. I'm going to be between the bench as my first ever go round in Anaheim at the Honda center at the pond, Friday night. And I'm pumped up, but I've got to tell you, I got a little butterfly. So I need to be prepared. And you know, that's how you kick bought. That's how you crush it when you are prepared. So Emily, can you please tell me right now? How can I best prepare myself? I'm not talking about taking notes and no one the players and knowing the number. No, I'm talking about how do I stay upright. How do I not get hit by a puck? I know I was a goalie, but I don't have the equipment on. Well, it's so funny because after the game, we went to the hotel bar, lobby and I was talking to folks with the NHL, and there's this woman to call Buckley and she's in charge of broadcasting. She's like, the ref's all came up to me before the game, and they said, who's that between the benches? We're really worried about her. We don't want her to get hit by a puck. Who is that? I was like, oh, she's fine. That's Emily Kaplan and they were like, and I could tell during the game, the rest were giving me a look of like, huh? So, keep your head on a swivel. Follow the action of the puck, but come on Linda. It's all instincts, you're a goalie. You're reactive. You're going to be fine at it. I think the coolest things about it are that the small moment is that you notice, like, for example, in the lightnings, banner, ceremony. We watched that on air. And then, you know, after we go to commercial break, I see all the veteran guys Victor headman, Mikhail surgeon, pat maroon. Another guy did it to. Maybe it was kuchar. Went over and skated to the Stanley Cup and just tapped it and I just thought that was a really unique moment. And then when you're there, you get to see things and like, for example, I didn't get to talk about this on air, but the ref on our game with Steve kosari, and he was getting so mad at the Pittsburgh bench, specifically the coaching staff of Mike Sullivan because they kept trying to make line changes when they weren't supposed to. And Steve is like, gotta help me out here. You gotta help me out and he was getting really angry of it. You get to see every player that skates to the ref complaining about something. Start practicing your lip readings because it's really hard to hear. But you can hear some stuff and the one thing I did report on air, which was funny, Corey Perry got knocked into the net and it comes back and he skates over, and he's really upset. And I'm sitting between the benches and Brian Ross is like leaning over yelling and he's like, hey, Corey, are you okay? And he doesn't respond. And he's like, how are you? It wasn't me and Cory just give him the death glare. And so those type of interactions you're going to love. Yeah, that's the thing though. I love that that you were able to report on that. But what I'm concerned about, so I'm going to be so head on a swivel, right? I'm going to be looking at both benches, you know, when I probably should be paying attention to what's going on on the ice. You know? And so I'm really, you know, they say repetition is the key. No, I just want again, stay healthy, stay safe in that first go around in Anaheim tomorrow. I'm really pumped up. But I'm going to be anxious to kind of capture who was it that said, I don't know, maybe I'll give you credit Emily. The key to being a good between the bench reporter and NHL hockey game is be like a nosy neighbor. Was that you who said that? No. No, it wasn't, but I like that. Literally what it is. Right. So that really resonated with me. B and nosy neighbor, like poke your nose where it doesn't belong. And I know we're going to have the two big and you had it and you experienced it. Big plexiglass on each side, which can block out a lot. But you can still see. And so that's what I'm going to try to do. But I'm really looking forward to it's fun, but I was like, oh, and here's the other thing. And I know just because we're two women, I want to bring this up. It doesn't mean you're women, you're talking about clothes when you're wearing. No, that's not why I bring this up. I'm talking about I want to freeze my butt off in between the benches. I want to make sure I'm wearing the proper fire. You know, I learned now finally after I, you know, I've learned never to wear boots or shoes again to a rink. To one, my feet freeze two, they hurt after like an hour. So no more, I wear comfortable sneakers, but my second part of this question, what the heck do I wear? How do I keep warm? Is it cold there in between the benches? The people want to know. It's not just me. It's a little, it can get chilly. You know, I mean, I was in Tampa where they have to pump the air and you know, probably in Anaheim, they do too. We're layers drink a lot of tea between periods, find someone who could bring you tea or coffee. That's another huge tip. But you're not gonna have to go to the bathroom all the time. I can not drink too much coffee and tea. Not an issue. Yeah, we can talk about bladder control as well if that's what we want. TMI, I know. I also like one thing. I was just in my friend's wedding and the wedding planner. My best friend's wedding. Yes. My best friend's wedding. It was. They're my two best friends, and they got married. It was my best friend's wedding, didn't make any packs with anyone to get married at 40 or 30 whatever the actual pack was. But the wedding planner came up to us and was like, make sure you guys are kind of moving around because a lot of people lock their knees and faint. And I actually thought about that between the benches, a to stay warm, but be just to make sure nothing kind of funky happened. Luckily in Tampa, there was a lot of space so I was moving around, and especially when the play does come to you, you should step back a bit just in case, you know, something gets deflected or stick comes up right..

"All right china now we just gotta get big picture right now because we are celebrating twenty five years of the wnba. And you've been covering this league for fourteen years more than half of the league's existence so you're the perfect person. Know your experience your season. You told me like that word. Tell me in what ways has a league grown and perhaps more importantly in what ways to the league still want to grow. Yeah wow the league has grown so much in twenty five years. And i think that's been the fun. Part of this season is getting to reflect on all of those ways. Whether it's on the court in just you know how dynamic these players are in what they do between the lines. I mean yes. In the first season the league was great but some of the things that the players are doing athletically these days their skill said i mean you would hope that over twenty five years the game would have grown and you can see that in the numbers in terms of points scored in three point baskets. And how much more that means to the game so definitely on the court but also just the overall popularity of the game and i attribute that to a couple of things number one is the players. They have really own their own personal brand. They've owned their brand as a league. Whether it be social justice or speaking out on different things happening in society or you know their love for beauty and fashion what they do as parents as philanthropists as business owners. I mean these women have stepped out and used it at times even their own social media accounts to really push was important to them to show the world that hey you know we need more support for for the wnba whether that's viewership or sponsorship. And i really believe that's why this league is growing in those ways is that these women have taken ownership of it themselves and and put their brands. I so that's one thing now in terms of where the league may still want to grow. I want these women to get paid more money. I want to say the average salary is in the one hundred thousands in the mac salary. Somewhere around two forty So two hundred forty thousand dollars. Yeah we're not saying you'd have to compare it to the men. But i think we can do better. Most of them are getting ready to pack their bags. As soon as they're done with their playoff laws in head overseas. It's ridiculous like as much as i love the euro league game. I don't want to take away from what they give overseas to end your playoff run today and tomorrow be headed to say russia and your team is already three games into the season if crazy most of them are doing it for the money i will say all of them are but if they made a better living in the wnba hey they wouldn't have to go overseas and so that's where league still needs to grow it. Because i think if they were able to get more rest the quality of the game would increase even more. We could have these players marketing the league in throwing it in the off season so it would just be valuable in so many ways so it's time for some people sponsors you know step up and put your money where your mouth is really support. These women. All right let china. It's a playoff preview. And so i have to ask who is your wnba finals. Matchup and who wins the championship. This season well listen. Here's what i'll say. I do have to call these games so i don't wanna piss anyone all i would just go with the top two seeds and that's based on what they've done to get here. The connecticut sun in las vegas aide says. I know i'm going chalk. It's no fun. But i also do believe that. These two rosters are best prepared with their debt with their playing style to make a run to the championship round. Now who's gonna win. Everyone will have to tune in and watch. I'm not giving. I'm not getting away that one you'll have to just watch the games. Thank you china for your seasoning. For your expertise. And enjoy the game tonight in phoenix. Thank you so much for having me. I always have a blast guys thanks.

"We're all kind of saying the same agree. I guess what i'm saying. Is that if i were in dave roberts position i wouldn't be worrying about the next series i'd be trying to win this series and trying to get some more winds and even though i'm kind of hoping and keeping my eye on the scoreboard what's going to happen between milwaukee and san francisco. I can't control what's happening between those two teams. The only thing i can control is putting out the best chance. I have for my team to win. And that's why. I'm using these three pitchers now though so just to get to clinton's point and why what you're kind of saying is just slightly. A little bit off is that they could have pitched orients yesterday right. He would have pitched on four days rest. You could have pitched him yesterday. And you would have gone then. Would've gone bueller sherzer then probably price or somebody bullpen. Game on wednesday. But they didn't. They held them back and let him pitch on monday because they were pitching for these and not going towards the weekend with the san francisco sears. They could have had their three best pitchers going on friday. Saturday sunday. dave. Roberts decided to give an extra day off to to give an extra day off to bueller. And it ensures her in some sense so that they can have those guys rested just that extra day it did have nuance to yeah and more generally. That's that's a management thing that you can't just throw out you can't just say well. This is what we're doing today. That's that's the whole thing that you're doing in a series never mind but don't you guys think that you're looking at colorado and you're saying this is a team that is a ten games under five hundred type of ball club and you know what i think we can win. I don't think we need to us today. I think we can win this game even without him. They didn't obviously but i. I gotta think that you're looking at your opponent is which is why you're looking at atlanta coming up and then san francisco and you're thinking to yourself we gotta win these games against atlanta. We gotta have our best pitchers l. Which is why you have to plan for other opponents as well because who you're facing matters when again the factor that's changing here. Scott is the time on the calendar. That's the only thing that's really important. Here you're running out of time because all the games count the same. It's just a number of how many you play so you have to be able to manage it. Otherwise you're kind of going your gas out in a way that doesn't make sense for what you're trying to do. Overall the dodgers scheduled just down the stretch here three games against atlanta starting tonight at home than three games at san francisco. Three four games at saint louis and is a very very tough stretch of ten games because all the teams that you're facing right now are all real playoff contenders absolutely. So this is why. Dave roberts is choosing who to pitch in what series and where. He's he's sitting this up for the rest of the season. he's not just looking at like okay tomorrow. I need to have this guy. He's looking all the way through all the way up to possibly a wildcard game setting it up. So it's like this is who i'm going to die in that spot crucial element here because the wildcard game is not just another game. That's becomes on your seasons on the line so when you're close enough to this situation where you can sort of you can you can literally read it out. You don't make these decisions in april you make these decisions on. September starts because that's what your job is because how september is october when all right. So here's the final analysis then. Does everybody here like or not. Like what roberts has decided to do you lose two out of three to colorado. You start a three-game series tonight against atlanta and you've got your top three guys going. Do you like it or do you. Not like i think the best thing he does is this part of his job which is managed to get his guys in good situations. I don't necessarily think button pressing with his strength. Is this kind of stuff is his strong suit. Yeah i think he set this team up to succeed by doing it this way. So i'm i'm totally with sam. I think this is a great move. I think this is exactly what he should be doing. Pitch these three guys against a team like atlanta. That's a playoff contender. First place team versus wasting. I'm putting that in quotes. Wasting one of your top pitchers against a bottom dweller. Who obviously upset them by taking two out of three. Alright stick around everybody coming up. I would like to get back to a little bit more on rondo. Lots of people had to say about that earlier in the day the lakers looked like rondo is coming home. We'll get back to that story coming up yet sadan on cap on seven seven. Espn clinton yates is in force sodano. This week hey handsome man. Let me ask you something before we move back. I said we want him back to the lakers. For a second but hold on we were talking some baseball stuff. Did you see this story with the new york. Mets this past weekend you know listen both the dodgers and the giants had not long ago played against the mets and the dodgers took three out of four against them. This is going back into august twentieth somewhere in that range. So we're getting towards the end of the month but you following this story. How the mets fans are booing. The team who's in complete free fall and the mets players are like gesturing thumbs down to the fans and then after that happened once hobby by as told the whole world. Yeah that's us kind of get back to the fans. The mets pr staff went into like damage control. Motor you following the story. Yeah this this is an interesting story. Because i think especially in markets like this one that are big markets where people consider themselves to be rather educated fans. This is an interesting story because like queens. Doesn't play any of that. The mets and that fan base in that media market. Emily kaplan was explainers on around the horn. Today when we talked about it like this is how their role in queens like. This might fly in terms of like. Hey please be nice. Yes but when people talk about the pressure of the new york market. This is the kind of stuff that they're referring to. And listen the funny thing about it. And this is what i said on the show as well as like this is so mets man like even the things that they do incorrectly they do them in an extra lame manner like this down bit. Greg has been going for three weeks but you know nobody knew about it. Because they weren't getting people on base and they weren't any tag on games to let everybody know they were doing something good and some subversive way. And you're just like. Oh i get it. Hobby really fun. Exciting player and his larger point. I do kind of agree with. And i like how many buyers. But he's been there for a cup of coffee. Why are you yelling at mets fans. This doesn't even make sense. I know you're defending your boy. But like oh no. This is lame on lame which is just new york metropolitans baseball. I love this story. I absolutely love it because a couple of weeks ago. Remember their owner. Steve cohen ripped the mets. He's like what's going on here. Like i thought these guys are professional hitters like. Excuse me i mean on a hedge fund guy and i decided to buy myself a baseball team for the fun of it to show off tall my buddies but the guys stink and i thought they were a bunch of professional hitter so i know first of all people were. They seem to be rubbed wrong. By how dare owner publicly rip his team. I personally loved it now. You've got hobby. Baya's telling everybody that the thumbs down gesture is his way of saying to the fans..

That pay women hockey players a living wage tournaments. The world's and the olympics made everything to players on the women's national team in two thousand seventeen.

More importantly for the first time national team members were paid a living wage so that training and chasing dreams no longer had to be a financial burden that deal expired this year and once again the sides went to the negotiating table while the women were hoping to build on the momentum from the last contract the players were left feeling unsatisfied. These settled on a one year deal a byproduct of the pandemic the way to see what the economic picture looks like next summer. Meanwhile at worlds the treatments still isn't the same.

Sydney mclaughlin just feeding out the leila mohammed to get gold in the two hundred meters the explosion from noah lyles but it came a little too early and andrea the grass of canada. Bolting to the line. And finally golden kennedy been eric. Awesome run for silver kevin. You live for. I know you love to track how to deliver. It was fantastic. I this is. This is what the olympics is all about when it comes to track and field. You're seeing world records and more world records. I mean you saw two women break the world record for gold and silver and all of a sudden. Let me not talk about the the men's two hundred but let me just talk about the four hundred hurdles. Which is all of a sudden become v showcase event because just previous to this. You saw two men come come in under the world record so this has been it's been absolutely astounding to watch in the track in track and field and of course two hundred meters. It was fun. And i'm looking for another world record in the one ten for the men. Emily kaplan no swimmer lily.

It's so cool to watch and it was really cool personally to watch cine mclaughlin because covering the olympics in two thousand sixteen in rio i remember there. She was the story. She was the seventeen year old prodigy. She was supposed to come out and win and then she didn't even make it to the finals so now to see her at the ripe old age of twenty one fulfill that promise. It's just a really amazing story. It's what the olympics are all about. Yeah last night was felt like john. Mclaughlin introducing herself to an american stage in crowning herself.

They alternate wins in world records in the four hundred meter hurdles and with it all on the line and tokyo they went all out.

The los angeles lakers had like fifty cents to work with this off season and they signed every body areso ellington bays more month. None white our carmelo anthony and they're so old you're supposed to say how old are they. Tony these so old. If you make an adam and eve joke they say through soon too soon. You're all week. emily kaplan. Can this possibly work with the lakers. Come on we're all getting. Karl malone and gary payton vibes right two thousand four. A bunch of vets ring chasing los angeles and the two thousand four lakers team was very good. They made it all the way to the nba finals. But then they got obliterated by detroit pistons team. That was a lot better. And that's kind of what i'm seeing with. These lakers team to they were smart to add a bunch of shooting around a big three of russ. Ad lebron but i think they lack some of the talent and the defense to go up against a team like brooklyn. I also think carmelo's looking at this team as a thirty seven year old and it was like i gotta start telling people. I'm thirty six and shave a year off because all the cool kids on this team are thirty. Six him black stone. This is an older team. Let's just say it like that. Can this possibly work. Of course it can work if there's one thing that the nba does not serve. It is youth. You just saw it again in the nba finals experienced players with the milwaukee bucks who put away a younger lead team by the sons. You look at thirty two years old. That was the average. Age of one of michael jordan's teams in one. I think that's the oldest team. Ever in fact if you just look at the two thousands i think only the one of the warriors teams which was maybe averaging around twenty five twenty. Six years of age is actually pulled this out so you wanna be experienced you need. You need the grizzled veterans in order to get by. Look at who the sons add just a couple of years ago. The sons were the youngest roster in basketball. And who did they add to try and get over the top. Jae crowder was one of them and chris. Paul was the other they went for the experience. So you need that any kind. Can this possibly work with the lakers are doing well. I i'll say kaby. I'm not sure that'd be my take away from the finals with the bucks and giving especially that. Tv three struggled at the end and the bucks didn't have playoff experience. But that said i came here. Ready to roast the lakers for being old. And then i saw june we on this panel and now i feel compelled to defend their which is what they're bringing to the table as well as emily said shooting and that was of course a sore need for them with lebron ad and westbrook and now in ellington monk bays more and carmelo anthony. They've got guys who are shooting around forty percent from three. They did sacrifice a lot in defense ever easily. It can defend howard helps in the paint but giving up caruso. I think is really huge. He was the best perimeter defender on that team. He signed a really reasonable deal in chicago. I feel like the lakers should've strove to keep him that. Said they've got lebron. Ad they're still gonna win the west and then probably lose to brooklyn lou. How about you. The lakers are so old that they should be called. The minneapolis. Lakers the lakers are promotion for bingo night and be dressing up the staple center like it's a retired okay. It's one of those things where you know. Obviously they have a lot of experience on that roster. But i think one of the biggest snack here is the fact that they lost that defense. As mentioned alex crew is such a good defender. Casey p is a plus defender denis shrewd was a plus defender. I think they're taking a major step back here and while the experience definitely buys a lot in the nba. This is a really young league right now. A lot of the best star players in the nba. Right now are really really young. I think the lakers are going to have some things to climb.

"I don't louis accidental. A funny accidents get to witness very happy for that guy. Buffalo goes with another defenseman in their first overall pick. it was rasmus style. Lean before quickly about veneers. I think that it's been said. Everywhere ron francis was really into trying to find guys who played the game the way he did. You know. I mean that's near impossible. Want one of the all time greats. But this guy is fucking awesome. He skates like the wind. He has often ability. He plays on the other side of the park. I just got the chance to watch him at world championships. The most all my god. He now granted. This year's world championship was by no means like one of their top. You know the top players weren't there and things like that but this kid is awesome. And i think a lot of people looked at kent johnson. Columbus ended up taking new play michigan as the number one center available But in the end they went with veneers. I think francis sees a little bit of himself in them and i love the pick. Yeah they said Foreign above the best way center in the draft has an unbelievable motor. We had so. We did a pink. Whitney draft show with shane don which was unable to attend because he had prior engagements. But we figured. Hey why not pop on. And shoot the schick ashamed. Owns kid actually ended up getting drafted by coyotes in the second round but he did a good job of breaking down. Some of these top picks. I think we talked about the top fifteen. So if you guys get head over to our youtube channel you can check that out. But yeah he. He said that he looks a little bit. Like mike madonna when he skating because he's got the jersey flap in the win. Now people he ate buchan mike madonna. He's got a long way to go to being one of the best american born players ever but some deputies some high praises for the second overall pick and guys four. the top. Five out of michigan. I don't think we're ever going to see that again. No there's no way that a liberal. I i'm i'm not positive. There's no way that's happened with the junior team right now. Juniors built a little different right. You're not gonna have that many studs like that age on one junior team considering this draft in college you can choose where you wanna go. But if michigan doesn't win it all next year they're the biggest punch scrubs. I've ever seen they have they have. They also have pap response on. Who was picked in the first round last year player. Who was picked. I think. I think their goal was a high pick last year to right is that yes so so maybe even wagon status now. Ann arbor is a great town. They got a football program. That's pathetic now. Still a top football program known around the country. It's a great school nonetheless. The other funny thing about veneers. I meant to mention as he was committed to play at harvard. And then the ivy league so pathetic. They canceled their sports last year. So the kids you know. I'm a tough top draft prospect. I gotta i gotta go somewhere. She went to michigan late. But what. I was going to say about michigan is. It's a great town. It's a great school. it's an awesome. Awesome arena yo serena sick raid atmosphere and that team has just built to dominate this season. Because never before. Like you said biz if you've seen this many top prospects on one college team.

"Is a coincidence whatsoever that today is the day the Blackhawks come out and say, You know what? We have an external investigation. It's going to be very thorough. It's going to be totally separate from other people with no ties. The Blackhawks Because Gary Bettman is just going to defer to that refer to that kind of hide behind that, and we'll see what comes from that. What do you make of the way that the Blackhawks are now addressing it? Clearly there were issues in the past. But now having an independent review of the situation, what do you make of what the Hawks announced today? I think that would be complete appropriate stuff, especially because we hear the names of the people involved with this minus Donna McDonough. Those are people that are still within the organization today, and I don't think there's any way that you could do this fairly if it's conducted in house. Even with the NHL conducting a review. I think that there would always be that cloud of doubt of bias that may be seeing what they want to see. But if they're really, really serious about finding the truth and understanding Is this as bad as it seems, who should be culpable? I think they absolutely made the right step with hiring a former federal prosecutor the wrong message. Talking to NHL insider Emily Kaplan. Who's uh your You still live in Chicago, don't you, Emily? I do when I'm not traveling on the road to Vegas and Tampa. I reside in Chicago, and so she's a Chicago and so what do you think is more likely? If they do really get to the bottom of this? Do they scapegoat John McDonough as the All Mighty president, who told them not to do it, or do you think Stan Bowman could lose his job? I don't want to speculate. I do know that, you know, then, uh, well, John McDonough has been gone for what a year now and you know, there has been things and whispers ever behind the things we're like, Well, he was the old school way of doing things and now we're new, and that's cured to an extent. But there's still a lot of folks that have been around for a long time, and we're part of that McDonough regime and remember that regime also include a ton of success on and off the ice. I do think just because Stan Bowman's name has been so publicly attached to this. There's going to be a lot of scrutiny on him. And you know, in the next couple weeks, we're in a period where he's going to be very visible were about you know, after the Stanley Cup final, we're going to have the entry draft and we have the expansion draft. And they're all things that the GM has to be to speak on that there's free agency that it's next season. And so I do expect some kind of resolution soon, and I do expect to be very uncomfortable for stand in the meantime. All right. So what time does Bettman speak in 90? Seconds. Okay, Go ahead. Thank you. I appreciate your time. There you go. Real life coverage right there. She's live from the press Conference Cup final about to begin and you know like this scandal. This is a major story that also has tentacles all throughout the league because we re reference multiple times the success. The Blackhawks organization while this was going on, and what happens was successful organizations, members get pulled to different places. And now this story isn't just a local Chicago Blackhawks story. This is a story that then incorporates other teams. Other franchises NHL Overall. Marc Bergevin is the he was with the Blackhawks when this happened and he was asked about it yesterday. You understand what I'm wearing coming from on Susanna Collins, right, Like here they were outraged. The Oh my gosh, We can't have someone say sex in our air. Meantime, there was a sexual assault and they turned a blind eye. How hypocritical Can you get it? It's more than that, though, Sylvia because we've heard countless stories behind the scenes about how buttoned up the organization has been, and just how, like straight laced they've always been. But then, as soon as something happens that would make them look bad. It seems like allegedly they They're sweeping it under the rug. Yeah, Yeah. The Susannah Collins thing. The thing that really annoyed me with that situation, she is so talented. She was a rising star in this business and in this city is that baby They used improv sketch comedy that she was doing before she got on TV as a strike against her when any person trying to make it trying to get into television trying like she wasn't doing anything inappropriate.

"She's fantastic at what she does ESPN hockey reporter Emily Kaplan joining us here on Game Day on ESPN Radio Emily We appreciate the time thanks for jumping on first round of the playoffs in the NHL set to start tonight. I want to start with more of an abstract question. This has been a very unique year for the National Hockey League, in which all the Canadian teams spent the entire season playing one another and nobody else. So how do we properly evaluate the Canadian teams as we get set for the playoffs? Because we've seen none of them cross over to play anyone else do the pandemic. Yeah, it's wild, And it's the same situation here in the states were all three divisions of played each other again and again, and the first two rounds of the playoffs are again in division. So it's just the same teams we've seen face off each other, and I know talking to some guys. They're sick of it. There have you for new competition, but I do think that one it will make these first two rounds. Little extra juicy. You know, there's no feeling out period. We know who hate each other. We know their second seeing each other and to your right Once we get to the semi finals. It's kind of a crap shoot, because we don't really know how these teams they're going to face off against each other. And, you know, we've heard some talk that the North Division was little weaker than the other three. Maybe the central Division of the eastern stronger But there's only one way to see that and that's when they all get to finally play each other, which will happen eventually. Emily. We haven't seen the Penguins on top of the NHL's is 2017. How much faith should we have in Sidney Crosby on this penguin stain? That's a good question. You know, I really feel for them because of the last two years. They've just been decimated by injuries. But I think that coach Mike Sullivan has done a really good job of just been feeling the next man up mentality and it feels like anyone they've put out there with those guys. Does well and this year, you know they're getting healthy at the right time. They just got of getting milk and back, but he missed some time. We'll be here for the playoffs. I think they've got a shot. But they're playing the Islanders in the first round. And that is not an easy out the Islanders of the team that like nobody wants to pick because they don't play a great for effective Brenda pockets all defense. It's pretty boring, but you just kind of discount them until they go on a long run. So I think if they could get past the Islanders, they've got a good shot. But it's no easy out the first round. Emily Kaplan, ESPN hockey reporter, joining Joe Foreign Ball, admiring Metcalf E of the Goodyear Hotline. Some years in no matter what the sport. Maybe you only have a small handful of teams that are truly competing for the championship. When the Golden State Warriors were running through the MBA, it was almost a foregone conclusion that they win The West, and maybe one or two teams had a shot in the East for this year's generation of the Stanley Cup playoffs. How many teams truly have a shot at hoisting that Cup? At the end of the tournament. That's a great question. You know, I think the unique thing about the Stanley Cup playoffs is once you're in. Anyone does have a shot. And we have seen these eight feeds, You know, Go on long run thinking of it. Just off the top of my head. I'd say a half dozen teams I could say, realistically winning, but I I honestly could maybe up that number date. Emily, the Minnesota wild Go 51 into against Vegas. What does that mean? And what's their potential? You think in the playoffs? Yeah, it's crazy because, like the President's trophy was who gets the top seed came down to the pretty much final day and final game that the Colorado Avalanche played and because they won biggest bumped down and had to play. The wild is a really exciting time for Minnesota. They have got this kid Korea could freeze off who just Change the complexion of the team. He's so dynamic, so fun to watch and like they might have been, like lowest on my watch ability rankings last year and probably our top three this year, So yeah, they do get a favorable matchup. It's like Vegas. But Vegas is a team like they've only been in the league for a couple years now, but they think their time is now They're really veteran squad. They've got the best goalie tandem in the league, and Marc Andre Fleury and Robin Lehner. So it's no easy task for Minnesota. But I wouldn't just count them because you know, I mentioned completes off, but they do have a bunch of veterans on that roster as well. So it's kind of a nice, well rounded bunch. I love that term watchability because when you see the playoff structure, you get some teams that were matched up like Boston and Washington, and that just feels given their history that that's going to be a great series. But sometimes that could turn into a done other times. You might have serious that aren't necessarily appealing on paper, but they turn out to be great. I remember maybe 10 11 years ago. In the opening round. The Kings and the Blues had just this seven game brutal battle. That was one of the most physical encounters I've ever seen in my life for the opening round of the playoffs. There's one serious jump off the page at you has one that people who might not normally pay attention should be paying attention to You know, I think one of the more unique series this year for the first round is the battle of Florida. It's the Florida Panthers burst the Tampa Bay Lightning, and there's just so much there. I mean, the Florida Panthers. They're having this Renaissance year they're really buying in. They've got something called the Goaltending Excellence Department, which is hilarious to say, but they created it..

So we're we're on. Sports gives ninety seven. We've got a long way to go guys. Imagine like forty arouse like welcome everybody. The sports coups five thousand. Oh boy all right. We finally have one million views. It took a while but whereas you know. Espn's on like forty billion or whatever so anyways podcast she has right now so semi competing with their. But we're not really not is called. Listen closely with linda cohn and i guess as listen. I think this was a precursor to the to the. Do but she was. She will also be primarily focusing on hockey going into the future with. Espn so maybe she was in the room when they were doing these negotiations to get hockey back on espn now that. That's yeah. So that's linda cohn everybody and of course she she. When the florida panthers are doing their goalie. Try for their emergency. Backup goalie tryouts. And we had a whole bunch of people here coming down to to try out. She was one of them. She was one of the people that came down to try and win. The job of emergency backup goaltender for the florida panthers which would have been pretty sweet if she was in the building. Every other night is waiting with her gear..
Virus may have NHL cutting locker-room access
"All important story though has crossed the wire V. E. R. NHL is going to close in locker rooms to the media because of a recommendation from the CDC centers for disease control due to the old feared outbreak of the corona virus so this is happening this was Emily Kaplan are great ESPN national NHL reporter explaining exactly what the NHL intends to do with the locker rooms in regards to the media the NFL is planning on closing locker room access to the media the new policy coming on recommendation by the centers of disease control and could happen as soon as Saturday and it's already banned international travel to lead off and play it but this so far the biggest step if taken at the monitor the threat of North America at the end the brokerage home athletes deputy commissioner bill Daly told me that the league is very expert in plans to the kind of life becomes even more significant right have a playoff he could not rule anything out including playing in front of a funny game well certainly rice I mean you understand the concern among the virus and you want people to be as safe as humanly possible I certainly hope that this is only temporary because while a lot of people might say why do media need to be in the locker rooms I mean it is a very important job that you cover professional sports that you are in the locker rooms meeting these players are really telling the story is the right way I think it's a drastic step I understand that but again we hope it's just temporary yeah and in the end the thing is to Jeff is that it could reach out and I don't see why it wouldn't reach out that sort of thinking and policy to other leagues as well and specifically for for me the NBA is another place where where I I believe these conversations are going on about how they're going to approach this type of thing and and again you know just on the media side of it that's something near and dear to both of us but you know I I think that people have to understand the kind of wonder why are you in there anyway and in the locker room while it is is a sanctuary for the players it is also the place where you do kind of connect with players on and off the record level that's where you build trust within that's where you you can get it to where you just get to know a guy you get to know about his story his mindset and so you're trying to you're trying to get that one on one interview with him or even you do have that one on one interview with them and the barriers are broken down because he trusts you he believes in you feel like you know each other he already knows your first name you're not even introducing yourself when you sit down to do the interview so you know fans want these type of stories they want this type of access they want reporters to take them inside the locker room and accurately tell the story well the doors got to be open for you to do it so I I do think that well you want to take all the measures necessary to make sure that no games are getting canceled or anything because of of an outbreak within a leak it's it can be you know you give a mouse a cookie you it's a slippery slope to start closing locker rooms and preventing media access because players players kind of want that especially when it comes the NBA and and that's something that the media has to consist we kind of fight force that that sort of thing doesn't get limited I've always felt that as a reporter your job is to tell the story the most accurate way and Everest way you can okay fairness is very important if everything is just in a at a podium you don't have any perspective you have no contacts and that to me is what being in a locker room is all about you mentioned the relationship establishing that it is about filling in those blanks it's about understanding that everything is is so black and white and sports and reporting it so much gray area and you'll never understand that unless you get to know people and that's why I laugh at you know nowadays all these teams discourage you know their players and coaches from having any sort of relationship with the media I know I'll never understand that because if I were a player I would want people covering me that actually knew who I was and what was about because that's the person that's going to be the fairest when it comes to writing about me talking about me whatever covering me I just don't understand this modern thinking with media relations but that's another story for another show we hope that the NHL are banned and but I mean just you know rule is temporary but certainly with the concern for the corona virus you can
What one thing Kyle Shanahan would have done differently in Super Bowl
"Shanahan first public comments post the Super Bowl indicating he thinks the way they ended the first half was one of the reasons why they were up in the in the fourth quarter quote. I think that's one of the reasons why we're up. Ten in the fourth quarter and quote also thinks Jimmy Garoppolo one of the main reasons they got the super bowl quote. Jimmy is one of the main reasons we got the super bowl times by pal shot at hand. I'm telling the first comment obviously defend his quarterback. Doc Look no one's defended. Shane had play calling for the last few days. More than me. I think the criticism of him throwing the ball has been way overblown. But I'm still critical of of how we handle the end of that first half yes. It's why they were up ten but I do believe he should of anticipation that Patrick mahomes against gas line of Defense in the fourth quarter was a bad bad matchup and they should have tried to take the point when their offense and the defense. We're both dominating capital Biracial Shannon. I'm buying this is exactly what you want to hear. The leader is conviction. You don't need him lamenting this loss. Nothing's going to change. Don't keep watching the titanic over and over again as for starting next year. Of course you should. He's not not only was a good game manager but he had the best pass completion last year referring to Emmanuel Sanders. WHO said he's already watched the Super Bowl five or six times and every time? It's like watching the titanic padded down. Frank do you know that feeling by herself. Shanahan year his goal was not to give the ball back at the end of the first half. Let's remember the offensive offensive. Pass interference call. They should have been down there kicking a field goal going ahead by three points. The issue was those two drives after. San Francisco's I'm sorry after the Kansas City scored that was the issue in the fourth quarter. They did not lose a game in the first half. I don't have a problem with it and bob run a CELENA BY I. AM selling the nonsense agenda. Have I remember sitting here thinking Tom. Brady's watching this going for a minute. Forty three time outs give it to me. Give it to me. Every coach in the League was saying. What are you doing Janet? Hey and you're asking. What are you doing Bob? I have to say respectively. I'm selling you. What were you doing with your super bowl? Pick because they never came in. You never made a super bowl pick right here except Francisco within Cisco Forty niners. Here's your deduction Emily Kaplan. I mean this was not blackstone but about as good as you can do it as well. You're here you're super bowl. Pick and we move on fire sale to raptors one nineteen pacers one eighteenth the champs who you can never talk about coming coming back from nineteen down to get the win. They now have won twelve straight if a defending champion warriors team where he teamed one twelfth. You'd be writing love sonnets. In IAMBIC pentameter
Predators Sign Captain Roman Josi to Eight-Year Contract
"It's ESPN and ice but yes for ESPN talks about hockey I'm grateful NHL Writer I'm Emily Kaplan National Nhl reporter indeed you are so today the big finally get some actual hockey news talk about other than like injuries and stuff the Nashville predators call the press conference today like everybody be at the arena like eleven thirty 'cause we got a lot of things to talk about Oh what could it be could it be everybody knew immediately was the Roman you'll see extension eight years the Max nine point zero five nine for number fifty nine on the for this contract making Roman Yo see the third highest paid defensemen via the CAP heading into next season behind only Eric Carlson Andrew he is twenty nine currently will be turning thirty on June first of next year so emily we think of this contract firstly after talk about this trend this is the NHL trend. I feel of the last eighteen months when you sign a new contract it has to have some owed to your Jersey number in it and it's just ridiculous to me it's too cutesy it doesn't make any sense I don't know if the players leaving money on the table I'm not the team is like besides looking cute and a press release what is the purpose I will say this as well kind of a beat trend when you consider that Wayne Gretzky's numbers retired or all around the league and no one can ninety nine ninety nine it'd be the number I would use if you're going to pull the contract mullarkey that's for sure but I look I think that Roman Yosi over the last couple of years I've been one of the most consistent and best defencemen in the League he's a guy that we should be talking about enormous conversations probably over the next two to three years that's what level is at the most shocking part about it to me is the no movement clause because that is something that David Poile infamously does not give out here and Piranha or the only guys on the roster who have it and you mentioned his age he's about to turn thirty of this brings him to what thirty nine years old we're at a time where hey the blackhawks are playing the predators tonight on Tuesday recording this and we're talking about thirty four year old Brent seabrook halfway through his contract with a new movement clause that is looking pretty bad and getting scrapped for the second straight day and I don't think that Romeo who's on that same exact trajectory but we see why these things do become troublesome down the road right so doughty's contract was thirteen point eight four percent of the cap when he signed it trying to or Carlson's contract when he signed his this past summer accounted for fourteen point four seven percent of the cap and then Romeo Issues contract is eleven point one you percent of the cavs so greg numbers you get the sense that that's often couch come on what am I I always I always I was wave past math in high school I went in the back of the book copy down every a answer every lake odd-numbered question had the answer and then just a bunch of nonsense on top of it and hope that was right and if I was right like my goal was like a seventy five just get me through it did what I could so get degrees get the feeling that this this salary this is for the contract probably settles in around this much it's down from where the Romans camp was looking for they wanna like nine five it probably settles in around here because partially because of the trade protection that's that's a hell of a caveat from Poi- like you said and and because of it you know this this number on the open market is over ten I think for a defense of his of his vision Ilk we've been talking a lot about Albatross lately insofar as him being a Ufa and you know these kinds of guys don't become available when you look at a team like for apple like the Vegas Golden Knights like we've talked about for the things Golden Knights are loaded up front they've got a goalie they don't have a foundational defensive another Blue Line there's don't Roman he's one expert says one both these guys could have been available summer now one of them's off the market and you've got to pay for that so yes the term is frightening because like you said Brent seabrook cautionary tale right absolutely frightening term on this I will note that according to cap friendly the the contract is structured with all a bunch of signing bonus money in the first four years so all the way until twenty four when he'll be turning like thirty four right so that's just a little note little caveat no signing bonus money for the last four years and you know just there are ways to get around things but for the moment eight years over nine million dollars for one of the best defense in the League and the predators obviously if you look at the ages on that oster the next four years of very important
