"You go back all the way to their first appearance in the Cup final against Chicago. You take that you take to conference finals appearances, where they lost both times in a game seven. Obviously, I think there was a playoff myths and then that huge embarrassment at the hands of the Columbus Blue Jackets getting swept in the first round, But they followed up with two consecutive Stanley Cup in seasons in which today went 15 and oh, After losing a game, which is just a remarkable example of resiliency, I think tap the bottom of the most talented team that we've seen. I think it reminds me of those Detroit Red Wings teams back in the day when Nick Lidstrom was in his prime That if you you know, if there was a salary cap back then they might have been about 100 million over it with the amount of talent that they had the Lightning for various and sundry reasons have been able to assemble the amount of talent on the roster. They've been able to keep it together. They've been able to Work financially through, you know not only the benefit of long term injury reserve with future out, but, you know, let's be honesty. The tax advantages that a team in Florida have, um, are palpable in order to kind of bring down the debate salary of players and lessen the captive again. You come back to How? How much all these other factors play into a team. Success ain't like the Florida Panthers don't have the same tax advantages, right? Haven't exactly had the success of every lightning event so I think it speaks more to the quality of the organization, the ownership the management to coaching, and obviously the the shrewd assemblage of talent, um, and the execution by that talent in the playoffs. I've got one last question for you again. I'm talking to Greg Wyshynski, senior NHL writer for ESPN. This is on the minds of everyone here in the Tampa Bay area. Could they do it again? Could we have a three p. There are going to be some big changes during this off season. But is it possible Yeah, there are And I think for me it's very possible because I think the core of this team is probably going to be kept together. And it all does track back to you guys to me, which is Andres Ass listed the goalie and Victor has in the defense Mint. Um, you know, I think as long as you have that on your back end, it's a really good foundation on which to build a lot of things. I think you probably throw Kucherov and that two up front. I think about it. So those three guys to me like as long as you've got, then you're you're in business now. The part of the team that I'm most concerned about. And I think one of the reasons why they were able to pull this off and back to back seasons was their checking line with Yanni Gord, flanked by Barkley, Gaudreau and Blake Coleman. It's possible all three of those guys are gone because of the salary account situations. This team which would be a real shame, because It's one of the most effective lines that we've seen the postseason on a team and replacing that kind of facet of the team will be the real challenge Julianne Freefall in this offseason because not only are you looking for commiserate talent, and that's going to be difficult, but you're also looking for talent You can fit in under the constraints salary cap. Again unless they decide to put like Victor Hedman along commitment reserved for 82 games and then bring him back for Game one. I mean, I mean, it is kind of what they do, but I think I think that to me, it's You know, like we started to stay off the top. The death of this team is really the most impressive thing And you have a feeling that because of the length of the season and they're capping flat again, the depth of where you're going to take a head in the stars what they're going to be there, but Signing those special grunt that make a championship team that's going to be a challenge. I think for them this offseason senior NHL writer for ESPN Greg Wyshynski with us here you can find his work at ESPN com, including his most recent piece.

"Fall. But I'm not like super super super confident that it's going to go in. I'm like 70% confident that they move them. And then there's like 30%. Being in the back room. I had this like, Well, maybe they don't. They don't have to. So I'm definitely expecting that. They're going to trade Jack Eichel, but I won't be like My Fox won't be knocked off if they decide to keep him. I think it's going to be crazy offseason, but I don't think it's gonna you know, like I think there's going to be something that happens. That surprises mate. The thing that surprises me might be that they decide to keep either Michael or Reinhardt. I don't think they're going to keep both, but I think there's a chance to keep one of them. Okay. First of all, you've never missed a four ft putt that I've ever seen. I have lots of them. Second of all you maybe 70 30 on that four ft putt, But everybody watching you is probably 90 10 on you when you're putting from four ft out, So I think that's the way this actually looks right now, which is like it seems like everybody around us. And talking to us outside of Buffalo is like, Oh, he's totally getting traded. But every time I talk to you, and I'm in the same boat, man, I agree with you, which is I don't know. I keep coming back to. Well, it does complicate with the with the surgery, and you know you're Greg Wyshynski was on with bulldog in me last week, and he said there are teams around illegal lot of them that I agree with the Sabres about the surgery, so that kind of gives them pause about making a deal. Even I think That if you get a real, it's okay to make the deal if you still lose a little bit, because I think that that's just kind of where this is gone, But I look at all the teams that have been rumored to be interested in Eichel and I look at The Anaheim Ducks, for example, like they've got the third overall pick. They've got some really young, talented prospects. They've got some players who could be captain that could ultimately help the Sabres for the next couple years. And I look at deals like that, and I sit there and I wonder like Are the Sabres in that much better of a position if they accept this deal, and I go back and forth on it, So I do think that it's probably going to happen, and I think saber friends probably realized that just because the relationship is severed, but I'm also kind of in the boat that's like Kevin Adams doesn't have to trade Doesn't have to do it. So if he doesn't get a deal that he loved, he shouldn't move him. So I think that's kind of where this is, and I think that's why it's okay for Kevin Adams be asking for a lot, and I think that's why it's OK for him to be patient because The end of the day. If you don't get a deal that you love Hopefully you get a somewhat healthy Jack Eichel next year, and maybe you move them next year Or maybe the relationship is fixed, and we just moved forward here. So It's a really interesting things. I don't I'm on vacation next week, So I'm kind of assuming that's going to happen next week, because that's just how things work, but But, you know, I'm kind of walking on eggshells here here. Yeah, I am too. We leave tonight actually got to Oregon, Where you going? Charleston, South. I've never been so I'm excited. It's going to be like a million degrees. So I'm going to try and stay in the air conditioning as much as humanly possible, but heard like there's really good food where nori organ gone. We're going. My brother lives in McMinnville. It's about an hour and a half south of Portland. It's we have this discussion yesterday. Don't know if you know you know what the Spruce Goose is The Howard Hughes plane. Ever hear of it. Just spruce goose. Um, it's where it is. It's in a museum there, but that's where he lives in McMinnville, McMinnville, Oregon, and we'll be there so we'll head up to Portland. Last time we're there, we went up. We spent some time in Seattle, which is like a 34 hour drive, which was really cool, but it's really nice. And you've seen the movie The Goonies, right? Oh, of course. Yeah. At the very end when the pirate ship is going out, and the rocks are right there like he lives near there. We've gone out and I've stood right there looking at that exact spot where the pirate ship is going past the rocks..

"How much of a of a jump do we expect for these guys to take heading into this upcoming season on a team that's likely not going to have Jack Eichel back? Likely not going to have Sam Reinhart back and you know, it's it's going to be a much younger demon, even younger team that had already has been So I think, especially without Michael and Ryan Hart in the picture. I think the expectations you know, they will be lower. But you know, Mike makes a great point. It's a little bit exciting to watch because hey, We're going to get the chance to see some of these young guys get a chance to start at the NHL level and see how they progress. As time goes forward, you know is will bargain going to make the team from day one, especially for Rasmus risk? The linens gone? Absolutely, he should are we going to see you know some of these other younger guys making more of a bigger impact like Casey, Middle Stat. Rastus aspirin? Anders Bjork Cage Thompson. Seeing the guys that you know, even in Rochester. Some of these guys that maybe you know that could make an impact in the future. Are we going to see these guys starting in Buffalo from day? One? Sure, that's exciting to watch. But, you know, if Michael somehow comes back if Reinhardt somehow comes back, Yeah, the maybe expectations are a little higher, but are they still playoff team? I don't know. It's hard to tell. But certainly things are going to be a lot different. If I mean either way, it's going to be a lot different, but the expectations will be different, one way or another, but Even then, I still don't see the Sabres being a competitive team, a competitive playoff team for at least another couple of years, which is unfortunate because this this playoff drought there on it's time for the longest playoff drought. In NHL history and, you know, are we expecting another year or two? Maybe even longer. I hopefully not. But it certainly doesn't look positive that way. Yeah, and I still I have a lot of questions about like, what's going on here? I wish this is a It's a really intriguing type of situation from a lot of levels. And of course, you know, the very first part is just simply know where Jack like, will be playing and trading him, but Normal situation, like any team would be kind of jumping each other to get in line to acquire this player, but I think because of the health situation in the medical situation, and then what? Who do we have on the other day? Who said we had some? It wasn't Lashinsky. Greg Wyshynski was on. I was I filled in on on Friday for Mike. And I was in a bulldog. We have Greg Wyshynski outbreak in Britain, and I said, Where are other teams when it comes to This health situation like Are they okay with trading for this player? And he said, you know, he said, when he looked into it, there were more teams that he realized actually were on the saber side of this and would have the same opinion as the Sabres. You think about it from that term? That really complicates the issue here, right? I mean, there's there's only a real limited team. You already you already have unlimited number of teams that can do this and the salary cap and all that. And the prospects you have to give up with the players, the pics or whatever. But now you talk about if Wyszynski says there's actually more teams and I thought that are pretty much in the saber side of this, which is we don't want him to have the surgery, either. If we traded forms, we're not gonna trade for him. I just think that makes it even more incredible to think about a couple tweets coming in. Justin Didn't we publicly say we wanted the Sabres to lose a whole season? Yes, Some people did many people did. I really didn't. It was I understood it, but that's okay. It's not about me. I'm saying yes. If you say we I don't know who we is. Yes. Maybe. Come on. No, Justin. Certainly, you know the difference between the mayor saying Lose a Stanley Cup final game when you're 60 minutes away from winning the cup versus Hey, let's lose to get a generational talent, which, obviously, now we can look back and say, Was that the right call? I think that's a debate for another time and maybe a show that I'll actually do this week. I don't know, Uh We got Yo, Xu says, Al. Excuse me for being lazy. It'll be here, right? You're not lazy are all the Buffalo Road opponents Stadium is going to be full capacity to your knowledge. I'm assuming he means the bills. And to my knowledge, I think they were all approved. By the NFL, But I'm not sure if they were all approved by their local municipalities. Yet, so, to my knowledge, though, I would expect that to be the case. I'm just not sure of all of the I's are dotted and T s are crossed in a lot of those. Um you know, certain situations, All right, So let's get with Paul Hamilton. We come back. We'll ask him about this, uh, Cup final game from last night. And where this goes at Montreal in Tampa, and also about the question I just posed to you, which is What really is the difference between your expectations between a Sabres team with or without Jack Eichel and or Sam Reinhart this year? 80305 50 If you want to jump on board Sal Carpaccio until noon today and then sneaky Jodi BSC takes over at noon on w G r stay connected to our shows and get in on the conversation.

"And it was my findings students. You know most teams kind of side with the Sabres on this one, as far as their approach to the injury, and that kind of that, you mean your question is what complicates things. I think that complicates things because Jack and his team obviously have a certain thing in mind for what they want to do. The injury and it may not necessarily square with the team that acquires them. But like you said, I think a trade of this magnitude, um and and a transaction of this magnitude necessitate. Due diligence and lines of communication opening between the player and a perspective new team in ways that they don't normally do for a trade. So I'm sure this will all be sussed out well before any deal is struck, because the last thing a team wants to do It's required Jack Eichel and he's still miserable, you know, with with the situation at hand. Few more minutes here with Greg Wyshynski from ESPN. Longtime, uh, NHL reporter. He's on the West her hotline with us, Um, but let's shift our focus. Enough of that. I won't. I won't. I won't waste our time trying to figure out who the Sabres goalies might be next year, Greg Um, the final So far. I thought two very different games. Montreal played their game in Game two and had that backbreaking last second goal at the end of the second period after really dominating the period that it was much more their style game in Game two, but the result was still the same. So obviously a lot. Lot of pressure for them tonight to try to get back in this series. Yeah, And that's a great point. And it's a great point. Why the lightning are so good is that they are comfortable winning eight. Nothing as they are winning one Nothing, which is two results they had in the same series against the Islanders, as you remember, And so when Montreal does take over a game and when they play well, The lightning can kind of downshift and play a different style and not get flustered by not being able to do things offensively that you know, like we saw Vegas like lose their minds against Montreal because of the way Montreal was playing right so That's just the adaptability, this lightning team that makes them so dangerous. But for me, the story of the first two games is Montreal's offense, like they played to a one goal deficit engaged for what, like seemed like forever in Game one. In Game two again beginning of the third period. The Coleman goal was a backbreaker, but that's still a one goal game, and they simply couldn't find that extra goal to nodded up to change the complexion of the game to send it to overtime or whatever. And I thought the key to the game, actually, if you remember in Game two They had a four on three power play for like a minute 55 at the end of the first period, and I mean not only didn't convert but weren't even dangerous on it. And you cannot squander those opportunities against a team like Tampa. So To me the story of the first two games with Montreal's inability to get that one goal they needed. And a lot of that tracks back to the difference in Game two, which is Andrei Vasilevskiy, and right now he's out playing Carey Price. You're playing like an M V. P and the Lightning just have so much wind in their sails in these series because they know they have the best goal in the world behind them. Yeah, they are such a well rounded team. I mean, go figure They won the cup last year there in the finals here up to nothing. So what does that to even say? But I think you know the goalie is obviously excellent. Their ability to play defense like I noticed this even in just games against the Sabres the last couple of years, you know, laugh if you want, because the sabers I'm making this point about, but Tampa's defense to me is big and hard to get through, like, I think they're very tough to get second chance opportunities against just because physically they are. They're hard to get through. I mean, you got to play a well rounded game in the NHL on defense. You gotta be able to skate and move the park. Obviously, that's at a premium. But they have. I think just the right mix surrogate Kevin Hedman, maybe as the best examples of guys who can really wheel and play offense, but our big hard bodies to beat in front of the net. Yeah, absolutely. And you know, they added David Savard, that group from the blue Jackets. He kind of fits perfectly within that that you know mindset, too. But for me, the story about them defensively is as a team concept and It's one of the great stories behind their success as a team in the last two seasons, which is that you know that they were a team that was always on the cusp of looking like a championship team. They had like the best regular season record in decades, and some such That one year and then they lost the blue Jackets in the first round. They got swept by Columbus. And it was at that moment when Cooper their coach, Jon Cooper, got their attention and said, Look, we can score. But you can't keep playing like you want to win every game. 5 to 1. You've got to be able to play a game where you win it 2 to 1, and you could see their maturation as a defensive team. Especially when it comes to the playoffs in the last two seasons in the bubble, they played really good defensive teams and played them tight and won those games this year. Like I said, they can beat. You ate nothing, but there are just as adept at winning one Nothing. And it's that commitment to team defense and their ability to do it that just makes put them on another level and again. Montreal is really good, and they're really good at getting you pissed off. And get you frustrated by not being able to do the things you do well, But Tampa's got that ability where if you take something away from them, that's fine. They'll beat you another way, and it's just remarkable thing to watch in the playoffs. Like last thing for you here. I learned watching the run up to Game two the other night that the league had hired a tic tac influence. Influencer. Um you know it. Stop me if you had that on your bingo board for things that that I'd be asking you in in 2021 Stanley Cup playoffs. Um, And there's a relationship that he has with bar stool, which I don't know, maybe make some people uncomfortable. What were your thoughts on what the league is trying to accomplish and whether They're sending the right message with, you know, inclusion and hockey is for everyone and that sort of stuff by hiring this guy That's got some baggage. I I'd say. Yeah. His name is Josh Richards. He's got, I think. 25 million followers on Tiktok. I think in totality for social media, he's got like 40 million followers. Um and you know, I did whatever he reporter does when, when a tick tock Stargate tired with the NHL. I asked my 11 year old daughter. What's up with this kid? And she complained that he had a distract once against another influence your house, So there you go. That's what the kids are saying. I love it. My seven year old talks about this distracts all the time. And I think it's the most. Yeah, The sway House has heat with the hype house. It was the whole thing. But the Barcelo stuff like legit. I mean, there are some hockey fans that understand you know that barstool. Mean has had problems over the years of misogyny and You know, having their followers go after people in the hockey community. They had a whole situation with the National Women's Hockey League. Even earlier this year last year, I forget. Um, And it was it was bad and and, you know, having an association with bar still comes with a lot of baggage in but in particular, having an association with the importantly has a lot of baggage and this kid as a podcast with them, so I completely understand that and what I've been trying to tell People in the hockey community is that.

"You have to with legitimate, like franchise carrying potential. What one being lost it. Who you mentioned the other one being Sebastian Coe. So the big goal? Yeah, to Edmonton of the WHL. So I, you know, I would. I used to like it. It's a drafting field goal kickers in your fantasy football draft. Well, like, you know, you waited till the third round fourth round at most, and you would never take a kicker in the first round. Well, it was the same thing like that in the NHL with goalies. You had examples here and there in 2015 with Samsonov and I think at enduring 2017, but they were late in the first round. Now we've seen goes getting drafted close to the top 10 and think about Wall Street is this kid has been ready for this moment, his whole life. I mean, he was the youngest Ever appear in the Swedish junior league. He was 14 years old as a goalie, playing against 19 to 20 year olds, and then this year he there was a period of the way he was the number one goalie on a really competitive achievement layer in Sweden, So he's played in all the big games. He puts a lot of pressure on himself is As idle as Henrik Lundquist, and he plays a similar like inside outside where he's really reserves, things deeper than that. But, you know, couldn't just explodes to the puck and blankets the lower half and with Cosa you get. I mean, this kid is fantastic with his puck handling and his aggressiveness. Again. He's always are big. They're not small. There are 626364. And so considering that I think I saw start with this year. Six of the eight finally keeps in the playoffs this year in the Stanley Cup playoffs had goalies who were first round picks or four goalies. Starters in the conference finals were first. Around picks, and now you're having carried price against Vasyl left in the final, So I think teams going like, Well, listen, maybe we'll make an exception that thing with the Sabres. They never dressed all these. They have a couple of decent prospects. In the UK Peca, Lou Cannon and the kid Portillo, But I think the teams have only drafted. Those are the only two goes, they'd rather than the last five years, so maybe the savers will dip into the goalie council. They have more picks this year than any year. 2016. I'd be shocked if they don't draft at least two goalies. Well, three weeks from tomorrow. My partner on the other end of this call is going to be a proud papa nervous wreck all at the same time because his son, Owen Parker, um, could possibly get selected in this year's NHL draft. And as you know, a 66 goalies. They can move like him. Don't come along very often. Steve. So what are we looking at? Maybe with his chances here, and I know a lot of our listeners have followed his career since he's been young playing the Buffalo Regal's going back played at Nichols High School, and, you know, we're all going to be proud if we happen to hear his name selected. Yeah, Pro own Parker. You know, I'll tell you what he's going to be an over age. This is I believe a second look, but he didn't play for a great team. This year. It was there was the Isis tilted against them. But again, you know, when you have that size, I think he's like 66. He's able to cover the net. He played his angles the right way. And I always say this, but with goals we've seen so many goalies drafted late guys that work heralded guys that weren't ranked by central scouting the drafted late And they end up making noise and we see goes in the Chl at 24 25 become number ones in the NHL. So you know it's a lot of fun covering goal. He's like going. I know that there are a lot of competitive drive competition in the position because you know, teams only allowed so many. Going on their roster. But yes, chances I think are pretty fair. And you know you also having the added text this year. I think we have 225 6 this year, so it increases his chances of getting drafted even more. That's definitely one of the weirdest if not the weirdest moment I've ever had on the radio. Uh, I appreciate I appreciate Sal asking. And Steve. I appreciate, uh The kind words about the boy will you know we we were treating it like a long shot. And if if the number hits, you know, great, it'll be a obviously an incredible memorable day. Um, thanks a lot for your help you You want to let people know where they can find your work. And and, uh, and get your get your prospect rankings and all that stuff before we let you go. Sorts of free blog called the Draft analyst. Calm had been around since 2014 and I got a whole bunch of stuff going on there with rankings and mock drafts and prospect profiles, and I also have a podcast called the Draft on this podcast. They could find me on Twitter at the draft analyst All right. Thank you very much for the time and the kind words we really appreciate it, Steve. No problem, guys anytime. Thank you. All right, that is Steve Cornea knows the draft analyst is where you find him on Twitter That's Capital, D Capital, a on the draft analyst. Uh, going deep on the NHL draft. All right. We'll take a time out here. I'll kind of collect myself. That was just bizarre. Thank you, Sal. Uh, yeah. No problem. I'm glad I'm curious. Hey, listen, I I think a lot of our listeners are like me. I am Am watching this from afar. I'm closer to you than most of our listeners would be, But I'm super curious, You know, I mean, I think this is going to be really fascinating to watch unfold, and I know that it's kind of like something like, Do you ever say anything to you? Do I not? I wanted to happen. We all wanted to happen. You know, we're all kinda in this weird space. It's your son. You're super proud, no matter what, whether he gets his name, call or not, You know he's had this amazing, You know, Goalie career so far, and he's got a lot more ahead of them. So I just think it's super cool. I can't wait. But one of the weirder things for me is every time someone writes about Owen power. I, C O and P. And then it makes me think of Owen Parker and I'm like I got to think about. You know if he's going to get drafted, too, which is cool. I know sell they were they They both were drafted in the same year in the O. H L back in 2018. So when I was like, first sort of learning about some of these websites that ranked players at that level, I'd go looking and own power was just like the NHL draft. He was a very highly rated Prospect for the O H. L draft as a 15 year old and so every time I go look like I'd have a moment that's like a flash like, Oh, no, it's not him. Of course, it's not him. He was chosen very high. Owen was like the 200 player picked in that draft. And, um you know, probably we'd be blessed to have the same scenario. Play out here like if only take that late. Great. I wouldn't expect it much sooner than that, if at all, so anyway. All right. We'll take a time out here and we'll spin off of some of what we just talked about here with both Greg Wyshynski and Steve Cornea knows here the last hour on hockey, get back into some football as well as some I might need some grilling advice as far as like purchasing a new grill, and we hash that out with you and Joe and see if we get any feedback on that. What would it be in Fourth of July weekend and all? Let's take a time out along with cell carpaccio, whose in for my show up I am the bulldog. Sneaky Jodi BSC at the controls, And this is W g.

"And I thought the key to the game, actually, if you remember in Game two They had a four on three power places like a minute 55 at the end of the first period, and I mean not only didn't convert but weren't even dangerous on it. And you cannot squander those opportunities against a team like Tampa. So To me the story of the first two games with Montreal's inability to get that one goal they needed. And a lot of that tracks back to the difference in Game two, which is Andrei Vasilevskiy, and right now he's out playing Carey Price. You're playing like an M V. P and the Lightning just have so much wind in their sails in these series because they know they have the best goal in the world behind them. Yeah, they are such a well rounded team. I mean, go figure They won the cup last year there in the finals. Hero to nothing. So I mean, what does that to even say? But I think you know the goalie is obviously excellent. Their ability to play defense like I noticed this even in just games against the Sabres the last couple of years, you know, laugh if you want, because the sabers I'm making this point about, but Tampa's defense to me is big and hard to get through, like, I think they're very tough to get second chance opportunities against just because physically they are. They're hard to get through. I mean, you've got to play a well rounded game in the NHL on defense. You gonna be able to skate and move the park? Obviously, that's at a premium. But they have. I think just the right mix Surrogate Kevin Hedman, maybe is the best examples of guys who can really wheel and play offense, but our big hard bodies to beat in front of the net. Yeah, absolutely. And you know, they added David Savard, that group from the blue Jackets. He kind of fits perfectly within that that you know mindset, too. But for me, the story about them defensively is as a team concept and It's one of the great stories behind their success as a team in the last two seasons, which is that you know they were a team that was always on the cusp of looking like a championship team.

What? What are your thoughts on what the league is trying to accomplish and whether they're sending the right message with, you know, inclusion and hockey is for everyone and that sort of stuff by hiring this guy That's got some baggage, I'd say.

And you know, I did whatever he reporter does when a tiktok stargate tired with the NHL. I asked my 11 year old daughter What's up with this kid? And she complained that he had a distract once against another Influencer house. So there you go. That's what the kids are saying. I love it. My seven year old talks about this distracts all the time. And I think it's the most understand. Yeah, the sway house as heat with the hype oust it was the whole thing. But the Barcelo stuff like legit. I mean, there are some hockey fans that understand you know that barstool. I mean, has had problems over the years of misogyny and You know, having their followers go after people in the hockey community. They had a whole situation with the National Women's Hockey League.

Is not listening to his barstool podcast. The majority of those kids fan bases on Tiktok and Tiktok is A, um, diverse Young audience that he's reaching. And if you're if you're somebody like me who has been preaching for the last 15 years that in order for hockey to get where I think hockey should be. We got to broaden the tent. Invite more people to the game. Get more people excited about hockey. We need to be a more diverse sand bass, a younger fan base and just get more people excited about it. That this is a guy that knows how to do that. I mean, he's an influencer for a reason and has the audience that he has for a reason. And he's a legit hockey fan. How much money has the NHL thrown at people who don't care about hockey but are just famous. Right, like this kid's famous within his social circle, But he also cares about hockey's from Ontario. Like he's village, it hockey fans. So I think at the long story short like I think we as hockey fans had to acknowledge that, Yeah, it's not great that he's associated with brands that, you know, have the reputation they do in the half of the reputation that do for a reason, and the reason usually it's harassment. But it is also important to recognize that this is the type of guy that could open up doors to new hockey fans that we constantly beg for someone to open and I think we have to take that into account, too. All right, well done. Greg really enjoyed the time as always, and best of luck with everything, and we look forward to, uh, to our next visit. You got it. Thanks for having me. Alright.

"I mean, the the unique thing here is that you're talking about a player who's still I think Michael has got his best years in front of them like I wouldn't be surprised to see him be an M v p candidate. I mean, he's 25 years old. Like Usually you get a cop up player of this caliber, or he's had probably more of a body of work. And maybe that makes it more trustworthy. But he's probably closer to 30. Then he is to 25. So that's got to be tempting, You know, like to Quentin by field might project as as as a first line All Star Center, but like, Can you project him as Jack Eichel right now? Probably not as optimistic as you could be a bottom. So yeah, I mean, that's a tough thing. It usually you hear teams preach, like, stay the course draft and develop and all that. Um, but you got a chance to really jump the line here with somebody who is smack dab in the middle of his prime, and that just almost never happens in the league. Yeah, but you know, the other part of this, though, is that we plan to a salary cap. And while Clinton by field might not end up being Jack Eichel, I mean, there's there are people that in his draft year we're projecting about to have a Yevgeny Malkin ask skill set. That doesn't mean he's going to be Malkin. Mind you. I mean, there's only one Malkin. But like if you can get kind of close to it and not commit 10 million on your cap to a team that already has a lot of money committed to an J. Kopitar and drew dowdy And know that you'll have that money available to acquire high end talent to Serena, surrounded by fields surrounded Turcotte. If you're the Rangers, you're already paying a ton of money to Trouba and Panera and And what have you and yeah, some of that money might go to the Sabres in a trade for Eichel. But if there's an economic aspect of this, too now, some might say Iculs underpaid, You know, for the amount of talent that he has with that with that, captain, but With the flat cap this year. Um, and next year and you know you talked to some people around the league. They think the revenue picture is a lot rosier for 21 22. Then maybe the NHL anticipated in the capital start creeping up again. But it certainly isn't rocketing up again. And there is a certain financial aspect of this deal to where if your team that you know you have to be comfortable committing that kind of cap space to equal because I don't think the Sabres are picking up anything. On that cap kit. Um, you know for a player Michael's caliber. The other part of this trade would be the injury, of course, and the uncertainty surrounding it and what's going on with the Sabres, but also other teams and you know the neighbors would have to. I would assume give permission for other teams even speak with Jack like or the their medical team or whoever's medical team. However, that would work out like what are the complications that you may be hearing? Involved with any teams that might even be interested in Michael as far as that's concerned. Yeah, I poked. I poked around on this. When Jack did his press conference, Right and I think, and this has been reported elsewhere. And it was my findings students. You know most teams kind of side with the Sabres on this one, as far as their approach to the injury, and that kind of that. I mean, your question is what complicates things. I think that complicates things because Jack and his team obviously have a certain thing in mind for what they want to do. The injury and it may not necessarily square with the team that acquires them. But like you said, I think Trade of this magnitude, um and and a transaction of this magnitude necessitate. Due diligence and lines of communication opening between the player and a perspective new team in ways that they don't normally do for a trade. So I'm sure this will all be sussed out well before any deal is struck, because the last thing a team wants to do Is required. Jack Eichel and he's still miserable, you know, with with the situation at hand. Few more minutes here with Greg Wyshynski from ESPN, longtime NHL reporter. He's on the Western hotline with us, Um, but let's shift our focus. Enough of that. I won't. I won't. I won't waste our time trying to figure out who the Sabres goalies might be next year, Greg Um, the final So far. I thought two very different games that Montreal played their game in Game two and had that backbreaking last second goal at the end of the second period. After really dominating the period, I thought it was much more their style game in Game two, but the result was still the same. So obviously a lot. Lot of pressure for them tonight to try to get back in this series. Yeah, And that's a great point. And it's a great point. Why the lightning are so good is that they are comfortable winning eight. Nothing as they are winning one Nothing, which is two results they had in the same series against the Islanders, as you remember, And so when Montreal does take over a game and when they play well, The lightning can kind of downshift and play a different style and not get flustered by not being able to do things offensively that you know, like we saw Vegas like lose their minds against Montreal because of the way Montreal was playing right so That's just the adaptability, this lightning team that makes them so dangerous. But for me, the story of the first two games is Montreal's offense, like they played to a one goal deficit engaged for what, like seemed like forever in Game one. In Game two again beginning of the third period. The Coleman goal was a backbreaker, but that's still a one goal game, and they simply couldn't find that extra goal to nodded up to change the complexion of the game to send it to overtime or whatever..

"He's right. It's just this is hockey. He thought it was an overreaction. Paul if you missed it today, Paul Hamilton. Paul, by the way, did not see that answer. Coming from Paula Hall said he should be arrested. Did not see that one coming. I thought for sure he would say, Throw the guy out of league. Don't lever. Don't ever let him play again. Well, I mean, that's where Paul came to the rescue because you know you and I sit here and say you should never play again. Get a few text like you guys don't know the sport You never played. And here's Paul. Be like you're gonna arrest that guy. Well, they got guys like that in the sport. I don't want to be in the sport. I mean, he hurts people. Right. He hurts people. So that was on purpose and in very cowardly ways, too, And that's the thing about it. It makes you makes you so mad. It's not a hit where it got away from him. He didn't have time to go. To respond. Right turn like all these conversations, air. Oh, he turned into it. Oh, he's in the danger zone. All this all that bubble? No. He punched a guy in the back of the head who was down on the ice. Like you know that Z coming, man. Well, jury had driven head down and or his face mask wasn't his helmet. He was admiring his past. Remember, that's what it was. No, that's not right. Daughter by your past, look up. Yeah. Are, you know? Did you see the numbers? Did he not see the numbers? I get it. There are there are plenty of moments in the sport. I always struggle with knee on knee. It's always hard for me to tell it wasn't on purpose that it just did. He opened up his stride that the guy do that, knowing there was gonna be a neon need collision. I always I could never really get into the head of a player thinking what are you doing? Um, but I mean, it's so there's no debate when you when there's a guy on the ice, and you're Down. They're giving him the business. And then you drag Panera and down one of the stars of the sport, and, you know, whatever. So they don't play the capstone played tonight like I was running if we're going to hear anything on Potential suspension today. But they don't And we forgot to even bring up breaking was mentioning the break The tweet. The caps put out last night that they quickly deleted the violence and rent free crazy tweet about Tom Wilson. Uh, yeah. Yeah, that didn't go over well, either got to lead us. Yes, it did. But so the league can actually sit on this one for a day. If they so desire, the capital's don't play again. No, it's today. Tuesday. They play tomorrow against the Rangers played the second game of their little miniseries against the Rangers. So Maybe the league Don't know what the league does. Maybe they just sift through with this stuff today before they decide what to do. I mean, I'm not even going to say it any more is going to say if he doesn't get a hearing right hearing is at least five games right if he doesn't get a hearing, what do we do it, But it's the energy that's not gonna work myself up anymore in person, which would mean that it's six or longer. I mean, there's each. The fact that it's taken this long is just ridiculous and itself because there are some incidences where it is pretty much announced immediately afterwards. Were it slow or first thing? The next morning, there's going to be a hearing coming from the NHL with whoever it is and the fact that it's taken this long. For an announcement to come is Is certainly an indication that it's going to be less than five games. He got seven games for the boarding hit on Brandon Carlo. It is Mother apologize, though, the funny thing about repeat offenders. Is that he had the NHL allows your entire record toe wash. If enough time goes by in between, which is, you know, like car insurance guy. It's safe driving. Ever got any accidents like I'm gonna drop your rate. With Tom Wilson. Immediately got in trouble again, Right, which is like, Oh, he was just waiting for that period of time to toll And then he boarded a guy for a seven game suspension. So you know, common sense would indicate that what they should do is say, like Oh, you're a year ago. The targets people in the works of system toe hurt as many players as possible. Oh, yeah. One year and one year in the future, If you ever do it again, ever. You're not. You're not gonna play ever again. Let's see him play. Let's see him Play one hockey game, knowing that if he does something like that he's done for his career. He went a good Almost three years. It'll about 2.5 years been a good 2.5 years without, you know, getting suspended by the league. So Harav for him? Yeah. So you get suspended in March for Carlo. According to the story I've got from Greg Wyshynski. The previous suspension was September of 2018 20 games for an illegal checking a preseason game. I'm looking at the sun hit on Oscar sunk, That's the life that's the 20 thing. That's always just so amazing to me. About this. I just I think it's so it's such a broken mind set that you know he's tough. He fights Hill Hill hit guys here, but when he plays clean, they'll do all that. There's so many scummy hits on and I just, you know to say, Well, guys were pulling away. He hit Brian Do Mullen in the head from behind. Like this guy is headhunting, right? He is 100% headhunting and It's It's tough because when a guy is willing to back it up and fight like he will, from time to time you get the feeling he's a tough guy. Tough guy He does. A lot of cowardly thing is that he's a cheap, tough guy. Yeah, Dirty, tough guy. Tough guys stand up and fight and Del put. You can get tough guys who will play the game clean. They don't cheap shot people. They will drop the gloves in a heartbeat. They'll challenge you, They'll stick up for teammates, builder. They don't They don't cheap shot guys like I didn't think I don't think Rob Ray was a dirty hockey player. He'd find anybody and everybody, but I don't You know, he was never dirty. This guy is dirty. On and.

Now this is It's the small little solace I can take myself because there hasn't really been a lot of suffering in Tom Brady's NFL career. This week. Actually, I beg to differ suffering for other teams. I've done some of it. Have you just just a little bit some of it in person, too. By the way, right at the Games have to ask you some day. We'll do a segment on your favorite bills. Patriots games that you've actually attended. Um, let me backtrack back in January, The story came out for the New York Post. Eli Manning had done an interview to the New York Post, and he told them at the time, and Tom Brady still hasn't gotten over losing to him in the Giants twice in the Super Bowl. Hey, said he doesn't really bring it up when he runs into Brady. But quote I've been around Tom numerous times. I've never brought up the Super Bowl or our games versus them. He actually brings it up. It still bothers him a little bit, especially the 071 when they had chance to go down as the greatest team of all time Now, this was prior to this year's Super Bowl with Tampa and Kansas City.

So hopefully they can help ESPN Drive how they go about foul with this deal. I personally am not looking forward to if there is Barry Melrose because they're Hey Barry Melrose and I hate us stupid mullet head and I've hated a stupid mullet head for thirty years and no I do not know the interesting tapes of hand now, I'd rather have Jeremy Roenick back. Thank you. At least he's interesting and I just yeah overall. All Barry Melrose we're going to say is Gretzky Gretzky Chrissy. That's all he ever talks about is Wayne Gretzky like a crock. You can't get over. I'm just do it. You know, what's funny about ESPN? And this whole deal is there was an audition. For this and last year the NHL gave streaming only right choice to ESPN. So ESPN had a package and believe it or not, even though that was a trial ESPN still paid the NHL a hundred million dollars to do that job. Evening, so that would have that was that was a good gauge Market of Interest. So like will people actually be interested in ESPN returning to ESPN. And so I think a channel that puts on the spelling bee as a sport should shut up and maybe show some hockey that being said blackouts are going to still continue to be an issue. Yeah, I'm not happy about this if you can be paying for this and you're going to get all this technology until 1 open up don't black out anything, you know, I got pissed off the other day cuz you know with the counties that I have in here I have to go through and I'm like well watch this game and then it does it's thinking thing and all of a sudden it pops up and says, you're out of Market. That's like well the game was like out west Palm. So what does it matter but then you put it on regular TV, and then there it is. Yeah. I hate that story inconvenience. It is stupid to me that the NHL does not have a capacity. You just are their own goddamn games true. That shouldn't be black out anything. It's like okay I can get all right, we live near Boston. So we get blacked out for Nessun. Okay, I get that. I should never be blocked out of a Colorado Avalanche game. I'm definitely out of Market. In fact, it is 14 hours to st. Louis if I want to watch the Blues versus whoever why am I being blocked out? I have you know, yeah, but that will go a little of that might go away..

If you haven't seen the movie, you don't have to bother. This is a good they went after me. And they said, Listen, We don't need guys like this in a league. There's no room forward in the game. There's no room for guys in the game. Their sole purpose is to punch people. I believe the players that play in this league should be able to skate and pass not simply ignited fight. We're gonna eliminate players like this. Which is one of the reasons why Oh my God.

"Training on time and prepare for a full season. Major league baseball. Was looking to delay the season for about a month. So that players could be vaccinated and by issuing that delay. Cut the number of games in the season. Because of that delay, But the players want a full season and thereby all of their money to the guys. That Petey I told you, I don't know if it's the right player for baseball. That depends on where the world is, in large part. And neither management or labor. In the case of that particular sport gives a damn about was right for the sport. They care about what's right for each individually themselves. That's all they care about. Baseball's had enough labor stoppages and enough head butting over the century. I don't mean just this one. I mean the 20th century going back to show us that they don't they're not paying attention to what's good for the sport in general, Sometimes they get it right by accident as they consider what's right for themselves. I don't know. I'm not gonna try to sit here and say that this is the right move. I mean, we don't know. Hopefully Tony. By the time we get to the end of the baseball season, the world will have taken a big turn in the right direction. But without that, we don't know if this is gonna work for baseball. Yeah, I'm sitting down 90 after night, and I'm looking at what's happening to basketball and how it is being disrupted right now in front of our eyes, And I'm thinking this will happen to baseball. As well. That 162 games is not even necessary. 121 140, I think would make everybody happy. You could make up some games with those seven inning doubleheaders. I think those three rules the seven inning doubleheaders the guy on first base in the 10th inning. The Universal D h. I think they all talk about I don't really know. Don't really know that this is going to work out. Completely for baseball, and I know it's unpopular. Take the view of the owners. What You know, I mean, if you want a baseball team, and you have to pay out full salary to your players. And you want fans vaccinated so you can get some concessions? Because, Mike, this is not the NFL of the MBA television doesn't pay for all of it. That's right. Doesn't so I understand why an owner would say what you want me to open up and make no money and just give out money, so I don't know. I don't know. I just again, Tony. I understand it. You know, each side could make some compelling cases as to why in the moment you understand and see it the way that side sees it. But is it the right move? You know, I mean, how far we're going to get how far we're going to go continue to go with cases of covert were being reported and deaths at a record rate every day. There's a new record how long we're going to go that way before it plateaus and then starts toe. You know? Decrease. Yeah, I mean, don't we? We may need to see that before baseball in any other industry can go on in a way that they want again. The comparison of basketball basketball is changing its protocols right now. Report from USA Today, saying fans may be allowed for baseball least in a limited capacity to start the season. Spring training games could see tickets being sold to small groups in pods SportsCenter all night, ESPN radio. Starting Wednesday and continuing for the next 116 consecutive days. I love hockey. The park is dropping on the 2021 NHL season, unlike last fall, when the NHL held its postseason in Hub cities There are no pods or bubbles, ESPN Greg Wyshynski. Yeah, Here's the skinny. It's a 56 game season. The NHL designed it to try to be as a covert proof is possible, such as that is, as we see with every other league right now, Um, they realigned the league into four completely new divisions based on trying to group together teams geographically cut down on the travel. And then also because I don't know if you've noticed, but the Katie and border is closed, so they put all seven Canadian franchises in the same division this season. It's the North Division. We're calling it the way the North Division obviously and and all of Canada is super excited about it. All the United States kind of like, all right, well, you guys go have your final could focus on our team for a little bit. Ondo. What they're doing this year. Is they Instead of doing a full conference league wide schedule? It's an interest division schedule. You're just gonna play games within your division, And they're also adopting a sort of home stand aspect of the schedule Kind of like Major League baseball or minor league hockey, where, for example, the Pittsburgh Penguins will go to Philadelphia. Don't play the Flyers twice in three days, then they'll go on to their next two games. Syria's their next two game series and all of this has done in service of creating a schedule where there's going to be enough room to make up games because the NHL knows they're gonna be postponements. And to try to cut down on travel and most importantly, along with health and safety expense the season because the NHL knows he's gonna lose over a billion dollars. Most teams get used to sort of scouting for their rivals. They also build their franchises at times to compete against certain teams within the division. So how does this realignment impact teams? Great question. I mean, we don't really kind of know what the dynamics gonna be. I mean, you take the Canadian Division, for example, You got a team like the Toronto Maple. It's their predicted by many to be the best team that division well. Every single team in that division wants to take a chip off the Toronto maple If they all keep the leads, like if you're the Winnipeg Jets, you're like all I want in life is to beat Toronto because of the team that gets the most attention and the most TV time and everything else. So there are no games against the Florida Panthers on a Tuesday night for Toronto, every single came is going to be like a playoff game for them, and for most of the teams in that division The other dynamic that we're all having a lot of trouble Wrapping our brains around is what is it gonna be like for these teams to play inside of empty arenas as it stands on Lee three teams right now, the NHL are going to start their season with fans in the building, Arizona Dallas in Florida, and even then we're talking about a 20% capacity, maybe, like 5000 fans, so for teams that traditionally have a strong home ice advantage, Team Blake Standard Day. Vegas. Montreal, For example, What is the dynamic mean now when you are going on the road, playing a few buildings, and you're gonna have empty buildings at home? The whole nice advantage aspect of the NHL is something I think that's a little bit up in the air this season. You need to catch up on everything that's happened since the season ended in September. Greg Wyshynski has a lapsed fan's guide to the season. It's available now on ESPN dot com. Five games on the Wednesday scheduled to kick off the season for the NHL, including the defending champions..
