"jeff schultz" Discussed on The Falcoholic

"Just just as a oregon into kind of specific positions as a whole going back to the if the starter's play on both sides of the ball and i think the thing that all fans should be looking for that i will be looking for is. How did the starters play. Because you mentioned the the depth issues jeff. Schultz wrote a piece for the athletic. Saying basically the falcons had the most minimum wage contracts in the nfl. Make sense for all the salary cap reasons we've been covering throughout the off season. We know that the death is not there. The falcons best chance to win. This season is for their starters to stay healthy and play damn well and that's why normally i wouldn't really care how starters looking preseason but we need to see them have much more success than the team did in the first preseason game and if the stars go out there and light it up i will feel much more confident going into the year. If they don't. I'm not going to be the sky's falling but i'll be a little bit more trepidation with my expectations specifically though obviously the offensive line. I mean i think that was the the big like nightmare. Scenario in in game one was just wildly and blocked second teamers. And the falcons are in good shape. I think with have when i when i saw matt. Hennessy didn't dress. I was a little surprised by that. clearly speaks to how the coaching staff feels about him. Where he's basically okay. You're being treated like starter So i think they should feel in good shape about jake matthews mad hennessy. I think chris lindstrom again is on a path to be a star in this league. And then i think kayla mcgarry we saw what life could be like without kayla gary in the first game so i think that should help. Everybody appreciate him. A little bit more than they. Then he's not great by any means but he's not bad either. He's he's an average tackle and you can get by with one average tackle in this league But how the depth shakes out behind them. I don't think is a surprise to anybody that that's what i'll be looking for. You know whether it's jalen mayfield or Who's the rookie. They drew dahmane or josh andrews or any of those guys It's a shame that matt gono his missed all of this preseason. Because i really think there's tunde here for him to really stake his claim and outside of that if the starter's play i wanna see the running backs and because the guys there in the first game didn't get anything done and a lot of that is attributed probably to the offensive line. I do think you saw a lot more consistency in cohesion. In the play calling and the scheme they stuck to outside zone runs. Play action that bootlegs and screens. Which are your three main pillars of of an offense and especially in the preseason. You're really not going to see a lot of wrinkles. But i want to see how. Especially mike davis and quadri alison. I don't think we're gonna see a ton of quarter l. Patterson or if we if very vanilla because i think he's if there's like an x factor on offense going into this season for me i think he's he's that just because a grind. This seems like the team has something in mind for him but every team that's ever headquarters. L patterson like fan base thinks that before the season starts and then he gets thirty eight carries across the season. These mainly just to kick returner Manage that and then. I just want to see a a quarterbacks played better. I think we have an idea of how this is going to shake out and aj mccarron is going to be the primary backup and sleep. Eight francs practice squad. You know maybe third quarterback guy And just pray to matt. Ryan doesn't miss any any time but for as much as everybody kinda came away talking about flea bay francs and he certainly did kind of like spark the offense. I don't buy any. When a quarterback has the most rushing yards in a preseason game. he that doesn't mean the quarterback's good something gone off the rails. Like danny yelling. Did that all the time like i need. I need you to get in there and move the ball with your arm for me to take him seriously as as a quarterback with upside which is why. It's a shame that kurtz is gone. Because he he at least move the ball through the air. It kept the offense month's schedule made some plays with his arm and it looks like he's doing well so far in green bay up there and i wish him nothing but the best because he's a super nice guy but those are the three things that i'm looking at my basically named every position dame but offensive line kind of running next. We didn't get to see in the first preseason game and then just i need to see the quarterbacks play better yeah at everything you said one hundred percent and for me on the offensive line specifically. It's that left. Guard spot Yes i feel like that. Josh andrews right now sort of the pencil in starter jalen mayfield. Being moved away from tackle and back to competing for that left guard spot. It sounds like he was alternating times with josh enters with the first team that this week. So it'll be interesting to see if mayfield can crack into the quote unquote starting lineup. And get some snaps. Their that's obviously a position of a deep concern on the offensive line. The wide receivers to me is is really interesting. We know ridley russell gauge clearly. The to starting guys It looks like right now. Elimidate zacchaeus is going to be wide receiver. Three although taj sharp has been really making a push up but you still have that fourth in that fifth wide receiver spot and potentially six. Many of us are sort of assuming the falcons go with five largest Here but you've got guys like frank darby who they drafted Austin trammell who really looked at the beginning of camp but got injured has you know has been quiet since.

"Back on alchoholic. Podcast dave walker. I'm joined by the one and only will mcfadden. We're talking about the falcons tight end group heading into two thousand twenty. One talked about the two guys at the top cow. Pinson hayden now excited. I think both bizarre. If you couldn't hear that voice in the first half of this is to me one of the most fun position groups sorta keep our eye on for the season but the guys who are at number three number four and maybe number five on this roster they matter as well we'll and i think the the first thing that jumps to mind he is not going to be receiving tight. End but the falcons clearly thought they traded for. They clearly thought this guy was so on a wanted to having locker room. He is a phenomenal inline. Blocker in maybe in the way that hayden hearst and cal will not be this year He is undeniably a fantastic locker room. Presence in which was gonna piss. Kiss off some of our But i think his values being understated. Because one thing falcons fans wanna see one thing. Arthur smith wants to see is a successful running game again this year. And i think he's gonna be a big factor. Now i'm talking about lee smith We we pulled away from the buffalo bills. This guy has. He's thirty three. Okay and i just want to reiterate this. He is thirty three as a blocking tight. End in the nfl. Some of you may be just sort of laughing at that. I think that is a testament to how good he is at what he does the fact that he has lasted. Essentially you know a decade plus in this league being doing something. That is sort of an under appreciated aspect of disposition. And he's still going and the team brought him in. And i want to give them the benefit of the doubt here that they knew that he was going to be the kinda guy that contributes on the field it contributes in mentoring. A guy like cockpits and this guy that's going to be a strong presence in the locker room. D feel the same way or my overstating Maybe a little bit too much. What lee smith could mean for falcons issue no. I don't think you're ever stating anything with that. Because like you said it was notable to me that they traded for him. I mean this was somebody who i can't imagine out there's always stuff behind the scenes. Wear you know everybody kind of expects one thing or believes one find out that actually know two or three teams were in on this person. And so what ends up looking like maybe a head-scratching move turns out to make sense in the context of all the matters really are with these thirty two teams think and two teams thought. This dude was worth adding than and you wanted him then. Yeah that's all the matters at the end of the so. I looked at this because he clearly does that. Niche levin toilolo the loose stock blocking damned role. And that is something where it look if you're going to draft kyle pits at number four and you've got already kind of a receiving tight end a little bit more of a hybrid than a pure receiver like an angry type but a pretty much a receiving tight end and hayden. Hearse you need somebody to put out there when you need the tough yards. And that's where. I think the move to get lee. Smith makes a lotta sense because he's cheap. I mean he's he's old he's experienced. He knows what to do. He's seen a lot of situations that are going to be thrown at him. So you don't really have to while you're working on grooming kyle pits and you're working on seeing what you can get out of hayden hers before you have other not to let him hit free agency next offseason or whether or not he can be part of your team. That's a lot of coaching energy to invest in two players ukraine. Needs somebody over here. Who just knows what the hell they're doing and don't have to pay attention to him a lot. And that's lee smith and oh by the way he can help develop somebody like kyle pits and the finer points of blocking he can help hayden hearst in the same way like there are so many guys on football teams in in locker rooms. Who just kind of know their role they come in. The coaches are frank. With and say look. You're not here to get seven hundred yards this season here. You're here to help us on four th and one. You're here to help us at the two yard line. And you're here to help develop this guy that we just invested a lot in and teach them how to be a pro and the other part of this is i. Don't know this for sure but this move strikes me as the type of move where some coach. On this falcons. Staff has either worked directly with lee smith before or is very close with a coach who worked directly with lee smith and who was recommended. Very highly to the falcons coach. So i don't know that for a fact that's pure speculation but that's what this move made me think of because in your one of your coaching regime. You're looking for culture guys. You're looking for guys that you know. Operate the same way you want your team to operate. They approach it philosophically from the same way that they're going to set the tone and that's just when i saw the lee smith move. That was my very first thought was okay this dudes coming in here to bash some heads and to set the tone in the locker room. That's what he's here to do and your last point is such a point one. Because i'm not going to dance around it. We we heard from many reporters wants. Dan was gone. in including jeff schultz From the athletic. Who has been covering the falcons for quite a while that there was a distinct lack of accountability in the locker room under dan. Quinn and i think that arthur blank and The rest of the falcons ownership felt like that was something. That had to be corrected. And it's one thing for the coach to establish the locker room and what. He expects all of his players but that coach needs someone. He needs several guys. Several leaders several veterans to carry that message into the locker room to every single player to make sure it resonates to make sure that they're hearing it it's one thing for the coach to do it in to reinforce what his expectations are. But you need those guys. Those guys like lee. Smith matt ryan these veterans who made a long career in the nfl to reinforce that message to every single gone roster. And i think to your point. Very strong one. I i agree wholeheartedly. I think lee smith guy. He's going gonna be one of those guys who's gonna come in and he's going to bash heads like said he's gonna be in there on fourth and one he's going to be in there on third and short and he's gonna get at most seven yards receiving but this is a guy that's going to help arthur smith coaching staff from the inside revamp. What the locker room is. Because that apparently was in the issue over the past several years with this team. And if arthur smith is going to rebuild this roster in the way that he wants to he needs guys like this. You're going to carry that message for him against a very important point So we may not see him on the stat line much but i think his impact will be seen in other ways in. That's something. I'm very interested seeing how that plays out and i just real quick i. I don't want to necessarily like there are absolutely some some good leaders and players. Stillman's locker room is your that accountability. Thing certainly was a factor. But i do think that the locker room probably didn't need a full overhaul but yes an infusion of new people just like there was in twenty fifteen in two thousand sixteen right. I'm a firm believer in turnover within the locker room to keep motivated. Keep guys hungry. Get new perspectives. Dig all while in good but there are some good young leaders. I think On this falcons roster already. Yeah absolutely and they just. They need as many of those voices as they can get especially for new coach coach..

"Smith are in wind now mode win. I think the these moves may be incongruent with that. A talking point for this team falcons want to win now. Terry knowing arthur smith want to win now okay but i also in survived now vote so they they want to win matt now but i would say there are survived now of katie's wired to win but they're not going to go out. This isn't like what happened. With the falcons. The last two or three years you when you rrestructuring guys. You're signing dante fowler. You're you're bringing back. Todd guler early you doing. All the staff which i rode people are upset. Identity was going to work. that's fine. Nobody has to send me an apology. It's okay. I know you still love me in your heart. It's it's cool this narrative that they were in win now mode as you are defining win now was wrong to begin with at said they were wrong. They never wanted to restructure matt. You have to start with that. They were not. They did not want to do it. And i look. I am of the belief that will never going to know the answer to this for truth. But i'm of the belief that when terry fought knowin- arthur smith came to the falcons knew it was a bad kept situation. I'm not sure they knew how bad it really was. Okay into you really started looking at the situation into two. You really started seeing. wow we. there's not too many options here. we can do. Yeah a absolutely one hundred percent guarantee you that font no did not come to atlanta expecting or wanting to restructure maira up. Hey doesn't mean he doesn't want to win now doesn't mean. He doesn't exist capable quarterback but he wants to get out of this cap held at this franchise in an he did it because in in two arthur In concert because they had to survive k. And in the rest happens whatever the rest happens But they were not going all out to win a super bowl this year. I'm sorry this. This spoils the the julio jones kyle pits calvin ridley hayden hers russell gauge you know offense were matt was gonna throw for six hundred yards and seven touchdowns. Every game was a famous chiseled in stone even more so than kyle pits going to the to the to the allah fame. Before he's played. I get it. I totally get it this but this bunk that they were hearing not just and i'm not blaming fans fans fans. I don't mean that as a criticism but you you see things your car okay. Yeah at this bunk. That has been spun by so many national media members can't believe they would do this when they were in when they were never forget in win now mode go all out. The super bowl was not. Do they wanna win. Yes but they're not going to go all out and bury the future even more than saudi beardie to do it. And i don't answer your question. I think that's the right perspective because it is. It has been some of the national media confusing to me. That has been any names. Because they're very nice people in a lot of really no football they. Some people are friends of mine. And i'm dislike. What are you people writing. What are you saying. And i yeah i don't yeah just going to let it go before this guy. Calm down me. I apologize of. I do think though that the it was made to be more simple than the situation really is. And and i think that's and that's almost always the case with these things. You know the whole thing with trading. Julio i think was made to be far more simple than it really was a lot of things at play Including the fact that he wanted out. And i think that probably the best thing to do when you see a situation and it looks black and white is to take a step back and say there's probably some something else going on here. Some additional details. We don't know and i get for fans it's maddening because you wanna know why you wanna know sure. Why is my favorite player. Being shopped around on on the the trade block But again it's these situations are rarely ever just black and white a win now versus for the future. You know if i'm a gm. I want both but that's just mickey. Yeah yeah and and look if we're living in a world like baseball or whatever something raising he can play economic situations in this data caps situation. Then you know. Maybe if julio jones wanted to stay you do it right and money's not an issue lahser owners willing to spend money and you spend money but just not it's just not the reality of life in the nfl. It's not an and they were not going to. I mean i hate to break any anybody's vulgar. They were not gonna win the super bowl this next season with. Julio jones is just any you know that defense looks like how much they have to prove with a running game and you have an offense. Even if you think matt ryan can still play at a high level on. Cd's he can't but you if you think he can. There's a transition with a new office scheme in any new coaching style. You don't know. And while i think this team has been poorly coached couple of years And while i think some guys are going to perform better overall product is going to be better would. There's a lot of players we don't know they're going to respond. We don't know how they're gonna play in the scheme. We don't know how it on both sides of the ball. We don't have responded. These coaches Maybe they peaked already. Maybe the falcons gave money to some guys. I'm not gonna mention names that they should not have. And these guys are all going to be judged on a whole new level with new sets of eyes with no loyalties to the past whatsoever and and there's a lot of the year right now and it is fear and this is not critically jared. Because i think he's phenomenal and needs to be a part of the future and i don't think anyone franchise thinks otherwise but things go horribly this year you know. Are you thinking. I'm just throwing this out there. Are you thinking. Can we commit x number of dollars to one player defensive tackle when we have so many more holes to fill than we thought right this. I mean seriously so it's another reason. Why maybe the falcons didn't wanna go down that road right now. Outside of the fact. That just wasn't really feasible I just think there's a lotta decisions are gonna spin off. What happens this season. Who's kept who goes gets paid. Who doesn't get paid who we have can on from. I just think it's like starting with a clean chalkboard all over again. And i think this was never a situation where it was going to get fixed or completely rebuilt in one season regardless this was never going to be twenty twenty one. And we're done. This is probably a multi year project to your point where they're going to keep reevaluating some of these guys in figuring out there their long-term fit on the team. And you know even with guys like diaw jones and grady jarrett. If they're looking two years out those guys are gonna be approaching thirty. And and that's the point where you start wondering if that's the guy you're going gonna commit to for long run and this is what we signed up for. I mean fans wanted. Thomas dmitrov in dan quinn gone and they got their wish and i think it was the right decision. I think everyone believes it was right decision but along with that that means the new regime comes in and they re evaluate everything including your star future hall of fame wide receiver. Which is where. Jeff thank you again I mentioned this on twitter. And i'm going to reemphasize you're on the podcast for all the reporting i've been watching. Yours has been the most consistent on these. themes with the falcons. I think it's held up the most consistently over the past three or four months So kudos to that. Because it's been a roller coaster. We've seen some wild reports over the last three months. But i think your experience with this team has has shown over the past three months and is accredited work. You've been doing so on thinking. Yeah on that note tiller listeners where they can find you what you have going on Well since my week won't be interrupted by another flew straight trade. I could spend an hour on that one Yeah you can find everything. I write which i will be falcons minicamp I think tomorrow the next couple of days but yeah just the athletic dot com.

"At the time but you know keep people keep bringing up matt ryan. But he was the one move that they could make it that moment to get under the cap for the league. Your started and i feel like this. The cowboys fan may not understand this. But there's no there's no grace period you have to be under the cap when the nfl year starts. They don't yes. Let you carry over it like in. There have been teams if i think the last one was dallas. Cowboys got penalized. I think the first round draft pick because they went over the cap in a in a non In one of the middle years where the league was under a cpa. They take it seriously. So matt was the easiest and quickest way to get under the cap at at that at that juncture Interestingly you mentioned the negotiations with grady. It almost seems like the worst possible time to try to negotiate an extension is when his agent knows that you're desperate cap space absolutely like that's ever was saying that should be the easy stenciling like if i'm the agent. I'm dragging my feet a making no sweat. Because i know. I've got him right. Where one and now. The julio trade if anything up the possibility for a better negotiating ground with gregg jarrett next year if they want to extend him in help out the twenty twenty two which is not looking great without conceiver. No because you guy in we can circle back to matt ryan on this so right now you. You already had a bad cop situation. Twenty twenty to take what whatever it is fifteen million of a dead money of julio now in twenty twenty two bat ryan's because of the recent restructure cap number twenty twenty two jumps from about twenty five million this year to about forty eight million next year. He's not going to play for. Forty eight million next is not going to happen. So there's only two options one is they restructuring him yet again or to you and i are here one year from today. Talking about was getting a second round draft. Pick for matt ryan enough in the tree. And i'm not really exaggerating because if you look at his post june trade number next year it's not numbers are not equal to julio but it says it's a very similar situation right pay the guy forty eight million we. We can't do that. We can restructure him but we need to get out of this future hall or we can trade him. And i think a lot of these decision a lot of these decisions based on what happens in twenty twenty one This is why i was such a strong proponent of drafting quarterback matt still not sure they made the right decision outfits. Pets Regardless of how good cockpits is. I understand that. Their evaluation of justin fields was not nearly as high as it was trevor lawrence. Or zack wilson. Or or trey lance. Who i i know for a fact they really liked. Trae lands It was clear they did not want to take a guy who they presumed to be by the quarterback but guy Pick in the draft and really like how pits to there's person everybody likes cockpits never seen a guy be declared like an all pro before. He's even plays. I mean it's like people are like when this guy get i feel sorry for him. He will bring this jan or hollering and insert great. But i mean come on let me let me get play right pressure. No pressure so again. I buddy engineer. This comeback. Arthur smith again. It's to come back to their record. This year headed of they. And does arthur smith believe okay. We can trade matt ryan. Let's say eight okay. I think we can trade matt ryan and signed this ryan tannehill level quarterback. Okay as as we proceed ryan tannehill a couple of years ago and and i can get at least eight eight making better if there's nobody. They want draft next year or they can do both so i really think does again. This is it. Cleans up the issue next this year. Doesn't think that the issue admixture Twenty one but not twenty twenty two. I'll get the words out right and But they had to do it they had. They're pushing recent. They had to start doing some of the stuff. Now and i know people are upset. I know people who have blue. Jones jersey are upset. Or he's guy all blob. This is as i said these are. These are businesses wrapped around sports. It's not other way on an and it's just the reality tonight is i wrote at night. I car the forty niners Thought they traded joe montana zapped. I moved to land. But they did as i was hearing. The hawks traded. Dominique wilkins was on the plane. When the braves traded the gohmert the with the murphy flying philadelphia. Oh my god. They traded bill murphy. I grew up in atlanta. But i knew what he met here. And so It's it's just happened to know or interesting. When you mentioned some of those trades because even with montana they had someone waiting in the wings. They had steve young waiting in the wings. And i think what sort of bosom of talk about who and he's going to go down as the one of the greatest players on the falcons maybe at the wide receiver position ever but they drafted calvin ridley in many people consider him a wide receiver. One and i see that sort of as a parallel with that montana. Young situation where you don't necessarily want to let go of this guy. In the ideal scenario he retires with the franchise. But you have someone waiting to take over that spot when when he's gone and it solves multiple problems with the cap and with Being able to elevate calverley immediately to that wide receiver position And then even with del murphy. I remember that That trade massive braves fan. That was devastating to me at the time. And he's a former Mvp award two times with the brakes And this guy you would think. Oh he's going to be a brave for life to steal the phrase from arthur blank and these businesses are they're brutal they don't the debt loyalty only go so far in as much as that. The team is still winning and they have the money to pay these guys so one last thing. I want to run by. Because we've heard this a lot in a i think you've dispelled it multiple times in. Its a narrative that keeps going. Around with the falcons in your one of the few people that i think has has reported on this Differently than many people. There has been this idea. That when the falcons restructured matt that they are now in win now mode they want to win now and that that restructure is a signal that they plan to try to compete immediately for a super bowl and then when they drafted cow pits that win long that narrative their win now mode and of course what came along with that is. Why would you be win now. Mode and then trade away. Julio jones when you can have the best offense in the league What do you say to this. I did the falcons knows..

"Line how we got here. With the julio jones trade for those who have been in a cave for awhile. Julio jones has been traded tennessee titans in exchange for a second round pick and fourth round. Pick in twenty twenty. Three in the falcons will send the course. Julio to tennessee along with a six round pick in twenty twenty three So jeff we know the compensation we know. The trade is is pretty much done as point. i wanted to backtrack to where a lot of this really started. Which was several years ago. We've found out sort of Through reporting Since really march april timeframe. It seemed like there was a you. Know some consternation. Between julio and the falcons and what. We did that start. Was it in the midst of the contract negotiations. Back in two thousand seventeen two thousand eighteen Is it a little bit later than that. Where do you think that things start to go sour between him and the organization nods question database for having me from an economic standpoint. It started in two thousand eighteen because at that point three years left on a contract. Extension the falcons led by thomas smith at that time understood. They probably would be facing an extension the following year even would have two years left and i know they had budgeted in before that two dozen nineteen season to give him an extension even with two years left and i believe it was agreed on by all parties front office jimmy sexton whoever and then out of the blue julio wanted a contract adjustment before doesn't eighteen and i'm i'm pretty certain that the organization was adamant against that that was actually right when i left the agency to go the athletic actually a story inside the week of me leaving. I think some people in the ajc were were convinced that i was holding. The story still have really is not the case. I really out after i left and it was. It was clear that the falcons did not want to make any adjustment number one. There were still three years. Luckily as deal number two They don't have any money in two thousand eighteen. They hadn't budgeted for it but did anyway they did restructure anyway. They got further deeper into the whole. Anyway i think got another tuna three and a half million whatever it was friday and then on top of that the they redid his deal before two thousand nineteen i think ever since that two thousand eighteen season from an economic standpoint there was stress the was laid out to me. Was that. just the closeness And i'm not necessarily including arthur blank but but maybe to some degree. Yes but certainly the closeness with me on the franchise from both ends just wasn't at the same level how much of this was rigid residual from not win a super bowl how much of this was residual of maybe julio wanting some statistical achievements that he was unable to get And you know the slide of the offense and obviously Know avas hill her to the situation to right if if they're not making thirty in the last three years maybe none of this happens to some degree and again quinn. Doesn't get five. Maybe they just kinda go on. And on so i think that is really start at. Where julio where he reached the point of screwed. I'm out of here is that i can answer. I do know this and i wrote. This column is agent. Jimmy sexton is also arthur smith sage. Okay right asli. Only found out very recently. Because i never really paid attention. Arthur smith stage was arthur's may that multiple offers to coach elsewhere. And he was not any jimmy. Sexton would not be doing his job if he didn't tell. Arthur smith look the you want that job just so you know before you go. Who will be wants out. So he knew. I'm sure on some level -tary fought no knew that he wasn't happy Even all that said if he was happy part of me thinks that they might have moved off. Try to move on from any way. They knew they have the gap situation than they were gonna have to get out from under this at some point they had. I realized this is a long answer but just kind of all ties. Together absolutely yeah. They decided they had to restructure matt. matt ryan something. They didn't wanna do They'd already done that. They weren't going to do that. With julio at the absolutely nothing to do with julio and in so basically that's that's where we are The lactic cap hit next year but to get out of the salary this year and they get sick around pitch so yeah they were never going. I picked. i don't know how somebody reported it. I thought it was bs the second i heard it night. Nobody told me that nobody else reported it. And i'll say this if somebody told somebody that they talked about first round pick. This is about the only scenario where i could see it happen. Team called called What we can discuss a first round kick. But you're picking up twelve hulu galil fifteen dollars right and that scenario. Maybe the cocoons go. Okay now. that's not gonna work because they wanted the money off the books this year And they needed. They needed to get off the books issues. So i think that's really. The out of the picture was relisted. And how much do you think that the firing of dan quinn may have been the straw camel's back because we know dan. Quinn had this reputation for being very Beloved within the organization the players love him There was some reporting this morning indicated. That was one of the final straw. Julio even though the team honestly have been losing under dan quinn as head coach so he was frustrated with winning. You would think those two things would wouldn't be held At at the same time. But you think that Dan quinn getting the axe in the way that he did. Maybe with a perth situational bit with with. Julio i dunno i dan. Quinn was very young. Players is a good guy. I love him to death out standpoint. He was a little bit of enable or he did allow julio to manage himself as they put it Allowed himself to taking himself out of players when he wanted to allow himself to to practice. I mean julio knows his own body not spine. I got it but i did mess with the team. The the offense is rhythm to some degree. I'm they'll never stayed out But i just think logically. They know the play. I get it but you still practice for a reason. I'm actually it was upset at. I don't know if he was upset. So much dance firing as much as he was how all the players basically just tainted at some point you know and then suddenly you know who gave a speech or wherever said something. Suddenly they took off and it's like dance job was say the following you tank did again. I think in that sense had been khalil was disgusted. You know With a lot of stuff going on around him specifically i mean. You can't look at something realistic and see a team go. Eighteen thirty you know over three years at basically have continuous continuous backslide from super bowl..

The falcons didn't like justin field. So that's why they decided not to take a quarterback. I would've traded down. And if you're gonna to when the tight end but you still have matt ryan like i don't. You're are you ready to compete. I don't think so. That's the feels like they're just two steps forward. Two steps back yemen club. That's limbo right. Yeah and you don't want to be there. Just cow pits could turn out to be wonderful player. But yet if you missed out on the other quarterbacks and you didn't like the other ones mack jones. I trade down and i could get back jones. Did that make sense. Unless they didn't have a good grade on him. And then you don't want to just take a quarterback and there there are a couple of teams that didn't have good grades on justin fields at all. But if you're the falcons you didn't get a quarterback this year You'll probably get a chance to get one next year. That's for sure you got the games coming up tonight. We got the game that reggio be on the call for. That'll be game one nuggets and the sons. And then you got game two bucks and the nets.

But the Buffalo's noble dot org's and and Eric Today I know years ago like there was a really big special Olympic event like there were Olympics hosted over it. Maybe you be do they still do you guys still have like teams from all across the state, gathering in one particular area and perform and and competing Yeah, So it's the interesting thing about special effects. It's not just one event. So in a normally care we have about 20 competitions just in Western New York, spread out through western New York. So, um, our state games to travel and we have a state summer games, which were in Buffalo from 2012 to 2014. Air. Actually, hopefully we're going to be able to get back to normal will be in Syracuse next year. But we have our summer games are winter games in our fall came that travel throughout the state. But all again all the funds that res through events like this and in our polar plunges pretty iconic. Go to support our local athletes, and it costs about $500 to support one athlete per sport per season. So, um, we do fun events like the Buffalo stumbling in the polar plunge, and you know we're doing the longest drive competition as well. Just to kind of get the help our athletes out and get him back in the game. All right. All right. Well, thank you very much for joining us. Best of luck in again. Buffalo snoble dot org's for anyone that wants to, uh, to get involved. Thanks. OK, great. Thank you guys have a great day. Thank you, too great organization. Really? It's it's so cool to just see like that. I mean again. It's just it's competing, right? Nobody's worried about whose first or second or third or fourth and the joy in the faces of the kids when they're you know. They're doing what they're long jump in all the different events. They have softball throw. It's just It's really awesome to watch. Was I was texting with my wife, Molly. Her uncle has down syndrome. He competed for a long time. He's 50 50 years old and did a lot of swimming, and she she was trying to follow up to find out like You said it a bunch of medals. I mean, he was He was good. He was to come headed in his younger days. So she also coached Special Olympics, which lived in Jamestown and, you know, just kind of volunteered It Zits a great organization to get involved with so and to be. It's important for the kids to have the the Athletics. I mean, to have these events to be able to compete and do these things and all it and again. It's great. I think it's great for The families to have this place for their kids to compete, but also for people like me who just who know of of people and be able to go out there and just watch the whole experience. You know, they want to say that, um, was it Is it tunnel under high school? I know. They always said they have games the last few years. I think it Huh? No Wonder High school, and it's just always a blast being out there. Um, yeah, I don't know. I think I was gonna mention what was it Crap. About the special powers and special Olympics. Yeah, it was about. Oh, and just I mean, listen, being on the field of the stadium. Well, that's gonna be awesome. If you are, what scenario? It is always cool. So must be. You know, it's a great experience. Okay? The other thing I want to mention Um Should the bills trade for Julio Jones? They should probably do that. Let's go ahead and do that. Holy smokes. Julio Jones is there's an article written up that it looks like Sigmund Bloom. The Falcons would like to trade Julio Jones, where they want for I don't know. But making it work making the money work. How can the bills do it right? The answer is yards for pass answered me on Twitter. If you re structure digs and extend him for a year that gets you most of the way there. I think you could do something with Dionne Dawkins to I'm you know, it seems like a pipe dream. It probably is a pipe dream. I'm just going to say this. A conversation about how do you catch the chief's? Except there's your answer. That's your answer. By the way you trade for who you trade for Julio Jones, and you now have two of the best receivers in football. And also Colby's Lian manual. E. I mean, yeah, since say it would be, it would be a move he's making 15 million this year. It's a big number. He's worth it. Signal balloon by the way. He's coming up with chauffeur the bulldog this afternoon at four. Okay, you promoting them. Nice. Can I convince you? Can I sell you? What? What I gotta do to get you Julio Jones Mobile. He writes Sigmund Bloom does. I'm sorry. Jeff Schultz, the athletic wrote this that the teams that could fit the bill for for Julio Jones. He's got three years, by the way about his contract. He still he does. So you got term. He says they need to have cap space, contending that think that Julio could put them over the top and be young looking to take the next step. Now, the bills or two of those three they don't have enough cap space. Maybe they don't need Julio to put them over the top. But anyway, you think the team in New England interested in him, huh? Here, the team's listed Ravens Patriots, the Niners Colts Chargers. It should still have, like, I think over $10 million in cap space. Mm hmm. You know what trade from just so he doesn't go to New England? If the Patriots had Julio Jones and those two tight ends, Yeah. Then what they go from having the worst weapons and league toe having, and that's some pretty good stuff to work with about 14 million and cap space, so they need to create just a little more space to trade for him. Well, I mean, I don't think the bills are going to do it bought. You want to push you want, try and get all in. Hmm. Let's step aside real quick, because relate get the break in and get out the way cause instigators will yell at us..

"Slava Voinov was a damn good player. I mean he could escape pressure he could move the puck he could attack in the zone defensively. Not Big but he was so strong on his skates and again. We know the reasons what happened. But that's not to get a team that that had more attack to it. I think the previous company and just to add a couple of things on Jeff Schultz A guy comes in and basically it was. He was the third line of Defense. If you will because Willie Mitchell was was injured early In the playoff year regeer then replaces Mitchell he goes down and then scholtz replaces regeer and You're right Jim I was looking at some of the numbers on Scholtz and he plays basically the series. The I'm series would Slava Voinov so there is your your second pair so to speak although it's tough to call. Martinez in green a third pair of for as effective. They've been and were in the playoffs over the years but Schultz was even in every game he played and you talked about the minutes and you know he had experience He had well over. I think four or five hundred. Nhl Games Mostly with the Washington capitals so knew how to play the game. He kept it. Simple a wasn't fancy Darryl sutter use them killing penalties Which he did with Voinov quite a bit and you know just one of those stories that whenever you analyze the playoff series especially when you look at a team that won the series like the Kings did against Anaheim this year. A good story a story where our guy you know gets his opportunity and makes the most of it and he was very dependable. And you can't discount the effectiveness that he had on the Kings being Ah Pretty steady of pretty sound team. Not only in the series but throughout the twentieth. Fourteen playoff run. Did he go? Did he play again after the answers you know? I think he did. I think it was Chicago in round. Three and I I know Willie Mitchell didn't I don't know if we're gear. Can I want to say regeer may be comes back later in that Chicago series? But don't hold me to that I'd to get up my sheets on that I'll look his game log right now as we're going into that but I was Glad you guys brought up the defense. Obviously in two thousand and twelve all six defencemen played every single game In that playoff run and so to have Jeff Schultz and and Robin Gear and and I think one other player whose name escapes me at the moment might have gotten in there but I could be wrong but to have those guys step up and fill in those steps roles. I mean it it. It just reminds me every time of Jeff shelves picture with the Stanley Cup. Where he's in a pool wearing a suit and a floating with the Stanley Akzo. But just a really did. I just looked Jesse. He played seven total games and and I think he played the last six in the Anaheim series so probably he plays game one against Chicago. And then revere comes back. Because I don't think Willie Mitchell was able to come back that playoff year. I might have been mistaken But as far shows his series was the Anaheim series played six of the seven games that he got into that playoff year against the ducks The the numbers I'm looking at Mitchell played in eighteen games so I think that might have actually just been the series. That Mitchell missed was that was that Anaheim series But regardless tremendous team effort. Let's go ahead and run through the Games real quick. We don't have to get too deep in the weeds. We'll start with games one and two at the Honda Center. Both kings win the first three to win in overtime. Goals from marrying Gabric mentioned Abbott game to marrying Gabric starts the scoring and the Kings win three to one jim anything particularly in that game. The you felt Help the Kings win the game or series? Well I think there's no question in game. Two it is Mr Jospin quickly. Kings were outshot. Thirty seven to seventeen. Doesn't always tell the story but you get into a playoff series. You need different guys to do at different times. And I think Jonathan he was picked the Number One star that gained Alec Martinez was Pick Number. Two Star and I was talking earlier about difference makers to me in their series. When you talk about the injury situation I think you make a a pretty good argument that Alec Martinez was the biggest difference maker for the kings and that he was a third pair defenseman earlier and then he probably still played on the third pair but his mixed his minutes went up to the point where he would be considered a second pairing guy or he was just he was about eighteen and a half minutes so just the difference make he made in. Games one game. Two for sure on that series. Yeah and I think Obviously in this series the home team just couldn't hold serve Early in the series with kings taking games one and two and Honda centers so the fact that the kings rebelled to keep themselves in both games one and two They scored I in each game. I prayed goal in game one by Martinez and then Gabric. Thirty four seconds game and that was huge. I mean as it turned out the team that scored I and all seven games while ended up winning in this series but to go into Anaheim again against a very good team that had hundred sixteen points at one hundred and sixteen points that year. Fifty four wins and you know. Anaheim got three goals in two games and the Kings Are Seemingly looking real good by Going to home ice for games three and four at staples. Now we get into game three and four at staples like you said Nick. And this is where the one weak spot emerges as far is the arguments for kings domine is that is that the the ducks begin to start having goaltending issues. Much like the sharks before them Jim Are you at all compelled by the idea that Boot using three goals in this series should be taken into account as far as determining the quality of the win. It changed the series around right back a little bit later eastern Anaheim when Gibson comes in but you know. Sometimes you're forced to do that because of injury I always felt even though even though you know. The ducks made it more than tough series. I feel that the team that is not forced to make a move a change in adjustment. As long as it doesn't have to do with injury of course injury comes you have to make an adjustment and not that usually makes the first adjustment is team. That's on their heels and the team that usually doesn't end up winning the series and know that they were forced to go with Gibson game for he comes in throws a shutout whose first playoff game the Kings Twenty eight to fourteen doubling up on shots on goal also huge win for John Gibson. But you know I don't. I don't know if boo shuffling things around as much as not just getting to a point of maybe his hand was forced at least start and then he's looking for a spark but if I'm not mistaken later on in the series I believe Mr Gibson gave up a bad goal leaky goal. And you know it happens to everyone that happens to everyone. But

I suppose that you both pick the same series lawyers. I shouldn't be We spoke to Gary shoot check already about the ninety three series against Vancouver which was the first time the Kings had advanced past the second round Just on a personal note. The two thousand twelve sweep of the Saint Louis. Blues will always be my favourite king series because I still am hurt over the ninety eight series against the blues. And so for me. That was a sweet revenge for the Kings to get their first series sweep in franchise history against Louis but let's get into the two thousand and fourteen second round series against the Anaheim ducks the first time the kings and the ducks ever faced off in the playoffs. That series really Looking at the totals was all marrying gabric. Six goals for ten points plus four lead the Kings Agyei. Copays are eight assists one goal nine points in the series. Justin Williams and Jeff Carter both with five points kings win St- game seven on the road and again just a little personal note. I was able to secure a ticket to that game. The day of the game for About one hundred dollars. Think so all of those rumors about a about the Honda Center being staple south. Maybe a little bit of truth to that. But let's start with you. Jim Biggest takeaway for you from that series against the ducks. Well the reason I picked as my series Jesse and just be. I'm going to try to simplify things. I'm going to go to three specific reasons why I believe. It's my favorite second round series. The king's point reason number one it's against duct right reason number two against the ducks and reason number three. It was against the ducks three excellent reasons just to add to that. The kings didn't want to get serious. Really let's not forget we'll get into it but yeah the kings playing. The Diet was the first time they'd ever met in the postseason. Right but I had forgotten this Anaheim had the best record in the western conference. They were the number one seed that season so it was a kings team that was in the conference final year before lost to Chicago and two years prior to that in two thousand twelve a their first Stanley Cup. So Yeah Yeah it was the ducks but I think what added a bit more flavor to it. It was a very good Anaheim team. The kings had to take on and of course Anaheim had the the home ice in that in that series the I think the whole fourteen playoff neck and again I talk about it many times. I it just my opinion. I'm pretty sure the numbers would bare it out. But I think the Kings winning fourteen the road to the Stanley Cup. Final was the most difficult road the history of the National Hockey League. I'm GonNa go that far. I mean you get down three to San Jose in the first year. He's you have to play you match number one seed in the second series. You're getting into a situation where Chicago is. Are they? In the midst of Salary Cap Dynasty. You know just to get there so anaheim a big part of that. I know just you started with a couple numbers to me in crunch time situations. Unfortunately I have a tremendous amount of respect for these guys. Sometimes we can joke about things. Sometimes we have to get serious but I think this Lafon Perry were both minus five in the series Co Petar was plus five Gabbara of plus four a lot of the crunch big time important goals. That were scored. That was the matchup and the Kings won the match up of the top lines absolutely and Marianne Gabric I mean looking back over the years. Not only in series the kings have been involved in but other teams that have been in the playoffs. How often does a player in a seven game series score in every road game in four road games which is what Gabric did he had six goals in the series Jesse talked about but they were all in Anaheim Ties it late in game? One after the kings pulled goaltender and wins it in over time and that Kinda set the tone for the kings and and of course Gabric like Carter in twenty twelve was deadline acquisition that season and he was brought in. You know to add offense and only did in that series as I mentioned was get six goals and as it turned out he led the NHL playoff goes eight years. So good for Marian Gabbard. All you can do score. Well that's the winning numbers when you're putting up numbers like that in the playoffs. You don't need to do anything else. I mean. I've talked about it on other podcasts. It's it's the MVP the Conn. Smythe doesn't always go to your best player. You know it goes to a difference maker. Sometimes if there was a second choice to Justin Williams and I would go with Gabric and because of the goals he scored because of when he scored the goals and many times the type of goal he scored was not necessarily the Marion Gabbert. Enter with speed and bigshot. It was your nose into scrum situation Absolutely and I was just kind of a reliving some of the highlights of that series with Gabric and and and in the first game when Anaheim's got a two to one lead late in the king's pull the goaltender. Gabric is going to the net and he got a rebound or a tip of a Mike. Richard Shot so again. Not a a skill type of goal that you would expect that we've seen so many times from Marian and then over time the same thing he goes to the front of the net copay tarp puts it in front of me. Tips it in so yeah again Gabric had a great playoff series. And his attorney one is only Stanley Cup in his career In twenty fourteen but yet he give him marks and we don't have to talk about much now but you know in the following series against Chicago. It was the same thing he had some big goals against the blackhawks similar thing. Just go to the net. Be there for tips. Be there for rebounds and very effective. I agree with you Fox. Yeah I I think and I don't know maybe we can ask some of the writers when we get back to normal hopefully in a couple of months Where Marian Gabric in the cons fights the voting your as you mentioned Williams did win it and certainly you know a difference maker in the three game. Seven's got the kings to the final. But yeah you gotta think in Marian got got his share of votes in twenty fourteen. Let's talk about speed real quick in the first series against the sharks in two thousand fourteen and sat out the first two games then he gets inserted into the lineup and it felt like at least from in my memory that the the kings regained a little bit of speed in a lineup that had been killing them in Games. One and two. How important was it? Jim You've talked about how in two thousand twelve team won on defense and in two thousand fourteen. They just came out and attacked other teams. How important was it to have players like Gabric like Carter like Pearson in the lineup against the Anaheim ducks team? That finished first in the division wasn't different makeup. Jesse you right now. You can add speed throughout your lineup and know that was I think the big contrast between twelve and fourteen was just that addition of speed and already had added Carter two years previous. You pick up Gabric Nick. I'll tell ya we checked into the hotel. This is first series but rejected the hotel in San Jose for game. One and I just went to Lombardy. I said Dean a minute just to pick your brain just before the playoffs star. Here just WANNA get gone. He talked to me for forty five minutes and forty two of those minutes. We're about the homework. The kings did to acquire Marian Gabric. And how much tape they watch. How much in person they scouted. How many people? They talked to trainers former coaches former teammates. It was incredible the homework they did so. Yeah I think you know you get a guy like Pearson come into a series inject speed you have got like Gabbara. Who Does the same thing? Then you have a corner on a separate line and before you know it you're just looking down through the lines and you're gone okay. This is not the get delete hold on and win like two thousand twelve. This is okay. If need be we can outscoring you too. Yeah let's not forget Tyler. Toffoli who like Pearson was a rookie that season in maybe doesn't have the the speeder quickness of those other players. You mentioned Jim but You know deadly around the net a tremendous shot as you can appreciate and he comes in and and there's another there's another weapon and as it turned out I think he wound up Setting a Kings record for most points by a rookie in a playoff here in two thousand fourteen. So yeah you put Tyler to fully in the mix there and now it's like pick your poison what line even to try and match up against Justin Williams who turned out to be the MVP for the most part you could. You could make the argument in that playoff year. He was on the third line. He played with with jared. Stoll and Dwight King. Quite often throughout the playoff series. Now they juggle the lines late in Games. That was closed. And you know going with veterans things like that as coaches always do but yeah I mean kings were tough team to match up against in Twenty Fourteen. Probably more so than they were The year before in two thousand thirteen in two thousand twelve won the cup. Because of those additions that you just talked about I think if I were comparing the teams and I knew were just talking about fourteen here but if I had to win one game just one. I would go with the twelve team because they were more consistent. You know exactly what you're going to get fired. A seven game series. I think I would go with fourteen team because they could win in different ways and through the course of a series that long you might have to find different ways. Mccain's did not go off on a tangent here. Game One injury to Robin regeer. The rest of the series Jeff Schultz comes in and plays an average of nineteen minutes and eight seconds of game so this is not a guy was inserted and just sits on the end of the bench. He comes in and plays on the second pairing and as I've talked before and I always have practices just talking about hockey. Just the hockey aspect. This.

"Jeff Schultz comes in and plays an average of nineteen minutes and eight seconds of game so this is not a guy was inserted and just sits on the end of the bench. He comes in and plays on the second pairing and as I've talked before and I always have practices just talking about hockey. Just the hockey aspect. This Slava Voinov was a damn good player. I mean he could escape pressure he could move the puck he could attack in the zone defensively. Not Big but he was so strong on his skates and again. We know the reasons what happened. But that's not to get a team that that had more attack to it. I think the previous company and just to add a couple of things on Jeff Schultz. A guy comes in and basically it was. He was the third line of Defense. If you will because Willie Mitchell was was injured early in the playoff year regeer then replaces Mitchell. He goes down and then scholtz replaces regeer. And you're right Jim I was looking at some of the numbers on Scholtz and he plays basically the series. The I'm series would Slava Voinov so there is your your second pair so to speak although it's tough to call. Martinez in green a third pair of for as effective. They've been and were in the playoffs over the years but Schultz was even in every game he played and you talked about the minutes and you know he had experience He had well over. I think four or five hundred. Nhl Games Mostly with the Washington capitals so knew how to play the game. He kept it. Simple a wasn't fancy Darryl sutter use them killing penalties Which he did with Voinov quite a bit and you know just one of those stories that whenever you analyze the playoff series especially when you look at a team that won the series like the Kings did against Anaheim this year. A good story a story where our guy you know gets his opportunity and makes the most of it and he was very dependable. And you can't discount the effectiveness that he had on the Kings being Ah Pretty steady of pretty sound team. Not only in the series but throughout the twentieth. Fourteen playoff run. Did he go? Did he play again after the answers you know? I think he did. I think it was Chicago in round three and I I know Willie Mitchell. Didn't I don't know if we're gear? Can I want to say regeer may be comes back later in that Chicago series? But don't hold me to that. I'd get up my sheets on that. I'll look up his game log right now as we're going into that but I was Glad you guys brought up the defense. Obviously in two thousand and twelve all six defencemen played every single game In that playoff run and so to have Jeff Schultz and and Robin Gear and and I think one other player whose name escapes me at the moment might have gotten in there but I could be wrong but to have those guys step up and fill in those steps roles I mean it. It just reminds me every time of Jeff shelves picture with the Stanley Cup. Where he's in a pool wearing a suit and a floating with the Stanley Akzo. But just a really did. I just looked Jesse. He played seven total games and and I think he played the last six in the Anaheim series so probably he plays against Chicago. And then revere comes back. Because I don't think Willie Mitchell was able to come back that playoff year. I might have been mistaken But as far shows his series was the Anaheim series played six of the seven games that he got into that playoff year against the ducks The the numbers I'm looking at Mitchell played in eighteen games so I think that might have actually just been the series. That Mitchell missed was that was that Anaheim series am but regardless tremendous team effort. Let's go ahead and run through the Games real quick. We don't have to get too deep in the weeds. We'll start with games one and two at the Honda Center. Both kings win the first three to win in overtime goals from marrying Gabric as we mentioned Abbott game to marrying Gabric starts the scoring and the Kings win three to one. Jim Anything particularly in that game. The you felt Help the Kings win the game or series? Well I think there's no question in game. Two it is Mr Jospin quickly. Kings were outshot. Thirty seven to seventeen. Doesn't always tell the story for you. Get INTO A playoff series. You need different guys to do at different times. And I think Jonathan he was picked the Number One star that gained Alec Martinez was Pick Number. Two Star and I was talking earlier about difference makers to me in their series. When you talk about the injury situation I think you make a a pretty good argument that Alec Martinez was the biggest difference maker for the kings and that he was a third pair defenseman earlier and then he probably still played on the third pair but his mixed his minutes went up to the point where he would be considered a second pairing guy or he was just he was about eighteen and a half minutes so just the difference make he made in. Games one game. Two for sure on that series. Yeah and and I think Obviously in this series the home team just couldn't hold serve Early in the series with kings taking games wanted to Honda Center so the fact that the kings rebelled to keep themselves in both games. One and two They scored I in each game I prayed goal in game one by Martinez and then Gabric. Thirty four seconds in the game and that was huge. I mean as it turned out the team that scored I and all seven games while ended up winning in this series but to go into Anaheim again against a very good team that had hundred sixteen points at one hundred and sixteen points that year. Fifty four wins and you know. Anaheim got three goals in two games and the Kings Are Seemingly looking real good by Going to home ice for games three and four at staples. Now we get into game three and four at staples like you said Nick. And this is where the one weak spot emerges as far is the arguments for kings domine is that is that the the ducks begin to start having goaltending issues. Much like the sharks before them Jim Are you at all compelled by the idea that Boot using three goals in this series should be taken into account as far as determining the quality of the win. It changed the series around right back a little bit later eastern Anaheim when Gibson comes in. But you know. Sometimes you're forced to do that because of injury I always felt even though even though you know. The ducks made it more than tough series. I feel that the team that is not forced to make a move a change in adjustment. Long as it doesn't have to do with injury of course injury comes you have to make an adjustment and not that usually makes the first adjustment is team. That's on their heels and the team that usually doesn't end up winning the series and know that they were forced to go with Gibson game for he comes in throws a shutout whose first playoff game the Kings Twenty eight to fourteen doubling up on shots on goal also huge win for John Gibson. But just I don't. I don't know if boo shuffling things around as much as not just getting to a point of maybe his hand was forced at least start and then he's looking for a spark but if I'm not mistaken later on in the series I believe Mr Gibson gave up a bad goal leaky goal. And you know it happens to everyone that happens to everyone. But.

That's on their heels and the team that usually doesn't end up winning the series and know that they were forced to go with Gibson game for he comes in throws a shutout whose first playoff game the Kings Twenty eight to fourteen doubling up on shots on goal also huge win for John Gibson. But you know I don't. I don't know if boo shuffling things around as much as not just getting to a point of maybe his hand was forced at least start and then he's looking for a spark but if I'm not mistaken later on in the series I believe Mr Gibson gave up a bad goal leaky goal. And you know it happens to everyone that happens to everyone. But.

Portillo feels like kicking a guy when he's down down though I'm not looking to pick any fights. Oh No no no certainly not Jeff Schultz like Jeff Shoals. He played wait a couple of big games in two thousand thirteen fourteen. Fourteen figures Jamie mcbain the wind. I liked mcbain. David Vander Gulick David. Banner like one hundred percent. I mean honest like joked earlier. That might not even I promise you. Vander garlic's mom. Tom Doesn't know who it is. That's a that's a home alone situation. Vandalism good names Christopher as for stieg yeah I one of his sticks at home. Yeah and to your point not toby reader but toby reader. That's the other guy. Darcy Kemper no no no from last year that you and Carlin would fight about him. Oh Yeah one hundred percent Mark Andre Kliesch. Yeah yes throwback jerseys who was the guy that had last year the Russian the Russian. Yeah they claimed off waivers from Tampa wasn't I don't remember and make me look up this dumb player no offense to this player in his career Oh Nikita sure but that's the one that's him. Carl Haglund I mean. That wasn't his fault. Though I was saying they traded for him he showed up. He did his work and then they traded him Freddie Modine actually I liked. I liked helping to like. There's a couple of guys they brought in help. Alfred uh his pants at home. Oh there's a story. There's pants his hockey pants. I mean look the goalie list alone right like oh I mean. Although actually was the was the decade before this where they had. Yeah not this second. Yeah Yeah pretty quick. Yeah a bunch of good backup Martin. Joan Yeah Bernie Yup Yup Yup Yup who else I mean Oh and Bishop Yeah Darcy Camper Camper was at least yeah productive. While he was here doesn't how many times how many games has been bishop. goalies have been good here. Yes yeah five. Five years tenure net. Before that. That's the real reason I bring that up because this is the sort of thing that when I used to write for the Royal Half Dot com you Takafuji. This is the sort of thing that we would. This is our bread and butter. Daniel Taylor and I see you're right but I went on record at the time when he and quick were. Both Berry Bros Roster bust but this is. The kind of this conversation shouldn't be happening on this podcast. There should be somebody out somebody somebody out there. Oh who was his partner the other one none of the other one. The one with the METALLICA helmet But but this is my I put. I put it on twitter. This is my challenge. Anybody listening in anybody falls Manzar. Don't well don't wait for me and Dave to have our producer to have this conversation This kind of stuff that that kings twitter and kings vans need right. There's there's already there's three or four or five or six accounts and they're all equally supportive cocaine. That's fine. Yeah dig deep into the misery of being a sports fan King Sans. We've just completed the greatest decade in franchise. History it's going to. It's a tall order to have a better decade gate them the one we just had Adam Hauser all. That's that is a good one. How many games twelve one all right there you go you? He gave him eleven too many Ou six goals against he doesn't point zero eight goals get him quick and wasn't him. Quick and Taylor and people are fighting over who should be the starter because it wasn't two thousand eight two thousand nine that now five to okay. I was a little bit earlier but anyway yeah he used stability with me played against him in squirts. Really wow human. His brother Sylvian CUCCIA. Who was unbelievable and unbelievable hockey player? Well that's okay. So I went went to his brother surveying was set our house when they came to play us. He's from Sault Sainte Marie Ontario and then we would go to saint. This is one of ten and we would go to sue St Marie and stay with his family and we used to watch hockey night in Canada and they have it on in French. And so that's the memory ahead of Dan Colucci better memory than most kings. Ah John Sebastian Ban. Wasn't he in a commercial. Eric Harrisburg airstrip is all right. Yeah no it wasn't in the In the commercial whether like having some sort of a yeah contests contests you'll mama offers anyway. Whatever so we go to this game sting wrapping stingrays were so bears? There's none of this and this is why I now hold on Jon Klemm. I think you know your junk clatters. I like all right. The point is none of those guys could shoot and you could tell really quickly like. Oh yeah this is. Why they're in the east and Brodsky's little brother? I think it was. His little brother was playing on the solar bears. And I'm watching the game and it's like back and forth back and forth to sooners some lumbering goons. That are never going to make it but some guys like some wheels is the hands but they just. They don't have the full package. No Yeah Yeah. They've got one or two things but it was so clear right you watch the H. L.. Sometimes you're like Oh Martin. I play Mary okay. Fine whatever follow back from whatever. The Easy H.. Jelly like wow. This is thirty. Might get a maybe a like a call up because of an injury. There'd have to be like a string. Yeah Yeah so anyway. Best of luck to everybody on the Orlando. Celebrate or something. Yeah sure of singer. Jonathan quick did start off in the look. You GotTa do what you gotTa do writing royal and Marcus Phillips Down there right now but played some games with Antero right anyway. Now we are going to wrap it up happy. It decades Kingston's happy ten last year. It's twenty twenty moving onward and upward and nothing but positive for the king's future. That's right right Jesse.
