2020 Stanley Cup Final Game 5

"All right. Well, welcome back I see I can't even I still can't say it right. Said at like twenty, five, billion times I still can't see it right. Welcome back to star cast remarks long with. Chris Chambers and Spencer. Tut's I'm Ryan Chambers. Spencer's our special guests on the podcast. Tonight. He's an old buddy of mine and he's He's a really good friend. So Spencer say hi Lord Room. And then Chris. No one likes you. Yeah I know. All right, guys. These games just keep getting more and more exciting game for was a good game until the rest Blewett and screwed us over on it. And they kept the Russel's in their pockets tonight. And guess what happened a magical thing happened We wasn't stars. Win. Stars are still the better team all series if you take away. Plays the stars are the best are the better team in every single game. and. So hopefully, whatever happened tonight. I. Imagine. They were told to chill it with the penalties because obviously called differently. So hopefully keeps going like that and stars have a little bit of hope that would be nice. They're both teams several things it on Orion and our like that should call on that. But Oh yes. Immediately quiet. Tampa definitely took advantage of the lack of calls and over time. All. Right. So the reaction to this game I did I hated the first overtime period? Honestly. And we were hanging on for dear life and you know what I'm going to go back to. The goaltenders are one of the most important things when it comes to any major sport. So, last game vessel Leschi had that huge save when we were down when we were up three two and allowed Tampa Bay to come back and win the game fired before and over time tonight. Dhabi had two huge genus. No three China saves. There one, there's one toe pick I'll still your words, Chris and then we had two more giant blocker saves that there was one instance where I thought it hit the post in the over in the first overtime and no, it didn't hit the Post Daba could just got full blast in late into the corner pool. So that. Well. So Let's talk about something that wasn't a factor in today's game as much in that was special teams. Yakuza didn't want to be in trouble again tonight. So they swallowed the whistle on everything. There's no chance get called either of those other times unless someone's head was shopped off, it seemed like it was nuts. So. Do you think they should have called those? Should've called those penalties in the first overtime. Oh, no way they did. So like if you asked her opinion I would much rather than call it the way they did tonight but they were definitely penalty compared to the other games, right So. Here's the here's the thing I was I was seeing it on twitter is there was a bunch of people who were all upset about the fact that the stars were not getting those penalties in the first overtime and it was just like we can't have it both ways. We can't sit there and complain that they're calling too many and then complain when they're not calling enough. And it's like. and. I put that in on twitter is just like I. Mean we can't complain about the rifts tonight we told them to swallow their whistles they listen to our podcast that I still haven't posted and they actually listened. It was. And we won and it was it was it was a more fun game that was an exciting game and it was absolutely epic. When it was, it was a playoff game. It was called like a Stanley Cup playoff game. It looked like a Stanley Cup playoff game. The first four games did not. They looked like regular season games the way they were officiated and this one seemed different in it seemed more high energy in it seemed grittier in it was much more fun to watch Jerry. Total I. totally forgot that it was in the bubble watching that game I totally forgot it was in the bubble. The way that game was played. It was you're exactly right Chris it felt like a Stanley Cup playoff game and so game for game four is Great Until the rest ended up. Until the recruited thank you for not screwing it up tonight I. appreciate it. How many shots on goal that we really get in the first overtime like one maybe two. Think it was officially too but. Those no overtime was very bad. The other reason we were in it was because adobe, INSA black. Play in our own, how many the the lightning got ridiculous. Yeah, we were in our defensive zone for at least fifteen of those wing. It was not good. Yeah. That was absolutely insane that whole first overtime. I'm just sitting there on my on Larry on the edge of my seat just like begging hockey guides. Please Louis praying in my head like please don't do. Volunteer there are this. Year. Yes. I was I think. It was so hard not to scream because we got like four kids here at this house right now they're sleeping and it took every ounce of my being scream out. Every ounce of my being not to say that and I didn't, and that was very proud of myself. So speaking of Corey Perry. Who a credit really go to Corey Perry Jim nill. Corey Perry Hill let's give another one point five mill. Right. He made it worth it tonight alone audience off. Yup, they give them the art Ross give him all the bonus. We need to start signing. We need to start signing a petition to resign him. I think after I think after the past two games. Yeah. The past two games three goals in two games after he had been silent the previous nineteen. I don't know about recital, but he's definitely worth so that he was definitely worth the contract we gave him this year at the very least. Okay. So this puts up an interesting point about. All the slack that Jim was getting you know for all the contracts that he signed, which included undersecretary he signed for about a million billion and a half. He signed Polski to that huge seven, million dollar deal which a lot of people were like he's a he's already thirty five why you signing up for seven, million a year, and then Corey Perry. Yeah and see that's the thing is that. Young those guys are showing up if it wasn't for the undersecretary, pass in the Colorado Avalanche series to give your onto, we wouldn't be where we are. If it wasn't for the goal eleven goals, house, we wouldn't be where we are. Now if it wasn't for the three goals in the past two games, the Corey Perry has scored we wouldn't be here now so. Again mad props to Jim Nill. He did it. All. All the people calling for nils head especially at the end of in. Season when we were on that losing streak. They look kind of silly now. This is built great I mean obviously prevails game period did not play anywhere near the way they're playing now, but this is what they were signed for. Right. We know that guys that old aren't GonNa be we'll to keep up for an entire regular season but if they can turn it on in the playoffs, that's all we cared about, and that's what we got, and that's what we've been getting or just a goal when we need timely goal the happened that's happened numerous times with both of those guys. and. I don't know what else to say. Great signing. Good. Please don't ever fire Any know any no. That was one of the things that they were talking about at the beginning of this year is Jim no on the hot seat I think I think he's fulfilled that question against. Your own over. Now but. De. I wasn't saying anything about it, but I'm definitely happy that. He's making people eat their words now so Okay so Talk about some frustrating things that I had tonight 'cause you. Spencer saw the obvious things because we were both talking about it but. Before I, go on Christie, you WanNa say something about the Klingberg haters out there because I saw you post it on facebook about it. Oh Yeah we'll just in general. I. Don't know why there's such a big fan base. If people who cling Bursa much in want him to be traded and stuff he's been outstanding. He has the second most point center team in the playoffs. He's had amazing assists timely goals. If you still hate Klingberg after these playoffs are just stupid. Like. Honestly. This ignorance healthy. He's made some some very good plays Americans like goals when wouldn't be where we were where we are now without him definitely. Doubt absolutely, no doubt. And congratulations to him for being the top goalscorer among American born players. He passed Joe Mullen tonight with that goal in the third period and Let's talk about this too because the search has done it again, they they came back again in this game and just win allegedly thought that this was over when Sergeyev scored the goal I thought okay, that's it. And then. You know I put on twitter but to be. Put on twitter as it ain't over till the FAT lady sings. But in the back of my head I was like this is over this. This series is over this game is over and you know what? I hate, don't give me hope I. Two or three times. That's the exactly I've felt. The rats are calling the games correctly now that we're going to be playing more five on five, eighty, two games now if you'll so much better. But Yeah, like House Foley ready for this to lose this I'd mentally prepared by some for it, and now all that's thrown out the window I'm going to be so sad if they lose on day. Right. It's. Here, we go again to swim. We think that the starter done they somehow seem to pull it off so. And okay. So let's talk about some of the things that we were. In the game itself specifically. So we mentioned how how good Areola Perry was all over. The is tonight. Lucky goal so Long. He was very noticeable on the ice wherever whenever there is a big scoring chance he was. One of the prime reasons for it I mean he was all over the ice and that third line. Excellent tonight. Maybe you just need to make them our second lane. Give them a little bit more a little bit more playing time so. To mentioned that fourth line tonight with a Dickinson Tomato and dowling even though that was a line that was just kind of thrown together. Of the circumstances, they did an accident absolute excellent job. It was very so I don't think they were giving given much responsibility on the first line for the bay lightning, but they were in the offensive zone and it seemed like and I noticed that several times and I was like, wow, this is one of the few lines is actually getting sustained offense of pressure or check. Great for pretty much all night long from them is it looked like FCC. So is especially good good game by Dowling, is what I thought. I'm a dowling hater but. He played hard and he played physical also. I was really having been. Never been a big fan of his, but he was really aggressive this game and. Before method, really. Well, and the thing is that commodities had his chances. He's come in in the past two games and none bigger than that giant save that under vasilevskiy hat on him. Where we could have gone up for to last game, but he's had his chances and he had his chances again today as well. So, what are the things that was really frustrating for me tonight was and I'm GonNa say it again was our exits out of our own zone. We could not get out of our own zone especially in the first overtime especially recruited escape. And yes that's true. But it wasn't just the first over time it seemed like whenever? They had. Like even like a slight bit of pressure either there is a lucky bounce for them. In like they, they happen to get their stick on it or a bounce off our skate in stayed in our zone or something like that or we just didn't work hard enough to get it out of our own zone. So the. The exit from our own zone is very frustrating and then the turnovers tonight again, there are just some dumb turnovers and it. At least from my end and I did I didn't like to see and. I was really curious and I'm just looking at it now. But the giveaways in what's funny is that they're actually showing that Tampa had one extra giveaway than the stars twenty, four to twenty three. So I don't know how that's possible. Think. That's I think. But those numbers are definitely because of tire players, right you never see twenty three and twenty four giveaways in hockey game even in the regular season so. That's some tired legs that don't WanNa move is where those giveaways are coming from. and. You know shot then golden night forty, one to thirty, three in favor of the. Lightning and I mean that's been every game. Honestly, yes. That's going to happen every game decided against the Vegas Golden Knights. But the thing that I'm really impressed with in that, we're continuing to play our game is the block shots. The block shots was thirty three to eighteen in blocked shots tonight. So. We're still sticking to that defensive game. I just wish I would see a little bit more offense going the opposite way and a little bit better exit of our own zone. That's. Earlier the first period dislike gave me hope unlike they written on the lightning zone majority of the time in the second third period they in the first overtime but right back to the second third and fourth game where the turnovers were all stars zone. Give us some comfort get out of there. Reu. holding my breath every time they put a puck anywhere near Dobie is so stressful right and and you know what? I didn't feel that way in game one, two or three. Now game four I started to feel it because we were we were down to two one in games but in game one, two and three, I didn't feel like that and especially in the past series I didn't feel like that either I felt a little bit like that in the Calgary series. But in Colorado series I didn't feel like that and the Vegas series I didn't feel like that and that was just because we were up the whole time. Now with our backs up against the walls. All that stress is coming out now. One game at a time one game at a time. If you look if you look at half to win three games in a row seems impossible. But if you just have to win the next game, it's not that hard. So let's see if they could make it one more and then at that point, anything will happen in a game seven. So. The all you got about one more win one more win. That's all you gotta you even focus on. Little. We're not learning how Really, hoping we don't go home. I wanted to game seven. Data game seven. So very crazy stat line. Everyone's talking about how Tyler Sega needs to break out in this series he her Sagan has an assist on every single goal tonight three assists and then so if he's not scoring, he's at least doing that so We can't buy this guy goal. No. I think he's accepted it actually gone through the stages like last game was denial and he's like finally reached acceptance and he's just make great passengers fifty. Also, he's also doing a lot of defense things will. Yeah when was out there we were never pin in their own zone. They are always making good passes for it's coming back to help the D. to get out of his own in that line always seemed to get us out so. That keeps you rod to Perry Sagan Line with great all night long right I. agree that was it was a great line tonight for us. So. Speaking of. Players that we hoped would bounce back. Let's I. Know We kind of hit on it but but we didn't really talk about it much was Dabi. Dabi played played. Excellent. Tonight. He I mean he only lets in two goals. And the two goals let's in. Night is fault at all. Especially, the second one is completely screened. and. Then what was the first one again? The plug go I guess could have been his fault. But in in you know that's that's an interesting thing that you can look at. Do you think there were a lot of people that were saying that Khudobin should've poke checked that puck instead of letting him go around. What do you think? Your the way w plays he doesn't really he doesn't use a stick in that way he doesn't really have an aggressive stick. So after that you noticed he started thinking about it more. So every chance he had to take a wack at the puck he did. But the way he normally plays as normally goes brings his whole body towards the puck because he's a smaller guy, he doesn't like throwing the stick out there to get a diving poke check 'cause he not big enough miserable. Literally. Jumping on top of the book I mean that's Goes as an example, what he normally does he's not. Like saying is not. Is Not good with a stick. I guess not asking really with the stick with his own body. Yeah. The Andre pilot goal was just beautiful. That's I. Mean there's nothing around it and then the circuits have goal there's no chance that he saw that unfortunately, just a seeing eye shot very lucky thorough bodies like. Started lighting bodies. Fine as. The Net, -An agency that. No way you could aim ninety, five, mile an hour one timer that will. I'm just going to whack the credit and see where it goes. Before now, he was intentional you. Here skill peer. Skill. Sometimes I. Wish we had like Shea Weber or like A. The day. No Char in have somebody's shoe two, hundred, eight miles an hour. that. He when he's when he finished the series against the Golden Knights a I, think it was a hundred ten one farmers. There's no way there's no way you can purposely be able to. I'M GONNA put it in the top left corner. Here we go. Tim also agree that. The last year easy nocco poke seventy miles per hour into the goalies neck. Would get. The same exact person. So, anyway. Dhabi had a great game and he he's going to have to be better a there. He's going to have to be better for the next two games. He's GonNa have to be our best player. You know we're all raving about how great corey period how good they again is doing in hey, skin shows up on the scoresheet again tonight, which we've been missing him but Dhabi has been our most consistent in our best player through these playoffs had any has to be when you're the winter when the the best goaltender in the league arguably who we think is the best goaltender goes down he's not able to play. He's he's got to step up and he has and he kinda laid an egg on some of those goals in game four. And he stood told tonight in, it's only going to get harder who's proven that he's up to no one is another lead. Lead goaltender which Kind of worried about when he goes up for free agent what's happened there but WE'LL SEE Let's just enjoy. For now. Because I appreciate he was really looked at it as a backup until I mean game on the the first year is. The. Out. Walking Stanley Cup final. All right. So what do we need to do in game six? Keep doing what we're doing. Save big someone's got to step up again. That's what we said. Last podcast. Someone's gotTa Steph Curry. Perry did it. He played great the whole game so Maybe. He did do it again. Maybe someone else steps up but. We're seeing throughout these throughout this playoffs that it really only takes one of our one of those top six guys that we have to take control of the game and they can go win it, and that's what happened. Tonight Corey Perry took control this game and he wanted The great first goal in a grind e scrappy very corey Perry s second goal. So Someone. Just got take control of the game and say I'm going to win it and that's how we've won all of our series. That's how we came back in the Calgary series. So I need to see that the box. Proven obviously in this game is not all us. Retz also, but we proven this game than what game on say out of the box. We get results as slapping more of that. Yup. Absolutely and you can ask, Chris this Spencer but that's been my thing like all playoffs stay at the box and in especially now more than ever that. KOMO's out. Fox's out HINTSA's. No. Penalty. Money less. Harmed carried out of the box he can actually score. That's we need this. Go. Sounds just like off. On. What. Even better fading. Sh-. Right. Speaking of the penalty kill. So let's talk about that one penalty kill. The one penalty kill we had I was scared to death. It was a shooting gallery. And it was just shot after shot after shot cross you know eastwest passes North South passes coming up to the slot in again Dobie made a huge save right in the slot dead center right in front of him Do you think that Tampa is gonNA get more than one panel. Or more than one penalty more than one power play in the next. Yes I do too. Hopefully, not completely mess this up, but I think they're going to amp up a little bit more in the next game A. And I appreciate the way they called tonight they made the obvious calls the super obvious calls and they weren't overbearing when it seemed like a penalty and it might have been a penalty they didn't call it. That's playoff hockey. Should have been done like that from the very beginning of the series. So yeah, if it's maybe a penalty. Bentley this. At least at this point at this point, normally this would be June but right now. I. Can't. Believe. Is Almost October. Thin Win. Win It. Goes against October. On A hot take hot take as call in game six to the stars game sixty the stars. Okay. All right. So all right. So let's ask that one question then do the stars win game six. Arthur. Chris, we can't hear you. All Right Chris says, yes yeah. His his his Mike Wayne out and he's shaking his head. Up and down a lot. we're. I think we're going to blow out game six. I think we're GONNA blow game six, I think this is GonNa be we're going to go after it and we're going to force a game seven and I wanNA. I WANNA see a five nothing or for nothing or or. Twelve. To I'd be okay with that and I think this is I think it's going to happen. I really do I think it's going to happen so We'll see you. See it, it would be absolutely sick and. You heard it here for me first so All right. We're GONNA leave it at that guys. All right. They listen to start after remarks. You can follow us on twitter and start casting or you can also like us on our facebook page guess Kamarck. Also, you can follow us on our Youtube Channel. We'll catch you on the flip say, goodnight.

Hey low guys and welcome into the sarcastic remark studios along with chambers. I am ryan and This is where Stories happen for the stars. We talk about these sort of things and unfortunately we live in a state where football is king and we fell in love with hockey. So hopefully you'll enjoy our banter back and forth Chris we've been gone for a while. Nothing's happened right absolutely. Nothing except for hockey stopped making sense but you know oh my goodness everybody. There is so much that We have to talk about in. You may not hear us talk about everything this evening. No so there's no way. I mean we probably what four hours probably if we actually mitch and everything. So we'll do what we're going to split this up into two episodes Tonight and then we also got tomorrow night so for those. That are listening on the podcast side. You'll get another one too Tomorrow as well So specifically what we're gonna do tonight we're gonna think stars perspective only all right so we're going to look at just the star side of the news in. See what we got going on here. 'cause garlic just with the stars so much as a happened over the course of the last couple of weeks with the seattle expansion draft in and also with the Also with the nhl draft in also with free agency which Nobody thought that the stars were going to be super affluent in the free agency. And that's exactly what happened. Boy were they wrong. Okay so let's talk about just the first bit of stars news that i want to mention this one just broke. I think this morning it might have been this morning. Just yesterday. it's long overdue but Sergei zubov the man. The myth legend himself number fifty six. Mr hall of famer now is finally getting his number retired by the dallas stars and that will be happening in january and of this upcoming season. And i believe it's going to be against the capital. So congratulations to mr sergei zubov not like he Didn't deserve it or anything or not that we didn't expect it but It couldn't have gone to a more deserving Person among the stars. Blue liners loves zubov integral to the cup run. It'll always be part of dell stars history well in it. It seemed for the longest time for a while that He was not going to get his number in the Hall of fame has number his name in the hall of fame at all even though he no one a couple of cups in had been in an integral part of all of these Teams and especially for the dallas stars for years and years and years so that makes What is that a rip to four hall of famers that were on that stanley cup. team was madonna bell. Four carboneau and zubov now so for those guys very integral parts of the dallas stars. Congratulations to sergei zubov But let's get down into stuff that we really want to talk about that. Seattle expansion draft will and brett hull breath five so bad i can just imagine hall lake st watching ahead to look it up. Going crazy is on. She's just not say bread whole in night as a guy who scored over six hundred goals. Something no big deal. Okay but can you just imagine him watching our stream and being do what the heck man. i think. We're good all right. All right hopefully never sees this. And i don't feel awkward and bad anyways. Okay so let's get to the seattle expansion drafts oregon talk specifically with the stars so one move before the seattle expansion draft actually starts for the stars and what everybody thought was going to be the pick for. The kraken was not meant to be because the dallas stars trade jason dickinson to the vancouver canucks for a third round pick. I believe it's in twenty twenty three i. I'm not quite sure on the year. But i am sure on the round I hate that so much specifically for me. You know everybody who watches are stranger. Listens to our podcast. Knows that he is one of my favorite players He will continue to be my favorite player even if he plays for a a really rough. The uncover connects team. But chris what did you think about the trade. I mean yeah it. Kinda sucks is the right trade to make because he is definitely going to be picked if if he wasn't too if it wasn't traded because he still had years on his contract is at rfa he was a young guy. He was still getting better. He somebody you could really build the team on could really be a solid. They're line guy for him so now we get to pick forum which is obviously better than nothing. So it's the right trade even though it sucks but there is no way we were keeping him while he was either him or alexi. Ac and at the time it didn't sound like alexi was going to be signing with the With the crack in. But unfortunately that happened. We'll get to that in a second but I i know a lot of people think that. Oh it's jason dickinson is not that big deal but for me especially this past year. He really stepped up as the third line shutdown center and he. I mean you can talk about him. Not you know progressing enough with his offense or anything like that but defensively. I think he was on the elite side of the nhl. And he could. I mean i would not hesitate to put him up there with like the filipinos of the world. And the you know the top nino third line shutdown centers of the world and He was absolutely fantastic and especially with radic axa not playing up to his potential like he has this past year. And you know just him being hurt overall. I mean there's even times he was on the second line and just he did a bunch for the for the stars this year. so yeah unfortunately. I think that's more of its. Hello how many injuries we had than. How good jason dickinson is. In my opinion. I mean i. I thought he was good. You convincingly throughout the season you you made me jason tickets and fan but in my opinion. This isn't a huge deal especially with the the signings that we made that we're gonna get into soon and with radic fox is gonna be healed up like he's gonna fill that spot in be just as good as he was before on my opinion so not a big not a big deal in my opinion but i do i do miss him. It would it would. It would be nice to keep him but now he's still yet the Did go out and Now make sure that we replace dickinson and alexi act both in the free agent signings. Oh again we'll get to that we jumping ahead So let's just go ahead and get to The main reason why we wanna buy we wanted to do the show Was to say goodbye to jamie. Alexi the heat he does as you. Fa he is the pick for the seattle crack from the dallas stars. Because i mean honestly who else were they gonna take other than alexi. Ac who else would they take They would've taken marshall show. Or i don't know how to say his name name. Mass measure in march izzo. He's on rusher in master hasher have had haven't had they would've taken you think they would reagan atom like guidance anything. Yeah well. I looked into some tourist. I forgot who reported this. Sorry whoever was. I mean but whatever But it sounds like it was a really last minute thing because alexi accent that he had no idea until the day before the expansion draft and his agent told him to get on a plane and go to seattle so it sounds like just worth too much and room seeing the contract that he signed. That's pretty true. It's a little bit higher than i think we would've been able to pay. And obviously it was too high for what they would want to do. So he goes to seattle. Which really sucks. He's awesome player in could get better from here so it really sucks to lose him. He's gonna be really good on the crack in could even become a top top pair guy for them in the future so good luck to him yet so the Really good luck to him. I mean he got paid. He deserved it. He reserved to get paid contract. in We'll speak out of that contract. Let me find those numbers quick He signed a four year deal. No five year deal. Excuse me the four year deal was larsen five year deal for a annual cap hit of four point six million dollars so i mean that's that's top four right there and you know for alexi. I came a even get the opportunity to play top. Two minutes with the seattle kraken so Yeah and i mean he deserves it. He's been a great player and he showed that he can even be offensive as well. Maybe we see more of that on the crack in since they don't have as good puck. Moore's stars already. Have he try and find a different role there. Maybe even two but level when we first got him he was good. We sent him off to pittsburgh to get better. Brought him back made a cup run. Good luck to them later on the cup without him. Yeah that's that's the other reason. Why a lot of people are talking about About alexi especially the seattle's very excited because he has stanley cup experience stanley cup finals experience and nonetheless so i know a lot of people look at that in some people believing that some people. Don't i believe unless you're in that kind of situation you really don't understand what the experience is like to be in the stanley cup final and you know for someone like jamie alexia. You've got that experience. He's in the prime of his career. He's twenty eight years old. He's not like you know late thirties or forties like chara or anything like that and like you said. He played with a an elite defencemen in mirror. Hey skin in the past year and a half or two years so in in he was averaging over twenty minutes. A game for that has passed season. So that's i mean that's a huge hole that the stars would have to fill which they have filled now. Yeah and we're going to get into we try building it with two guys. Yeah exactly and and we'll talk about that here in a second but In one of the things we're also going to miss about alexi is just just as pure size. I mean there's not many guys in the nhl with his size. We thought one though he's still smaller than alexi. Act but we did find one so in honestly Some career numbers. He had sex goals. Fourteen points minus three This past season He had a fifty five point. Eight percentage five on five scoring chance. Four percentage in fifty six regular season games with the stars last season Like i said twenty and a half minutes per game and he was in that included a minute and a half Average with when we were down a man so on the penalty. Kill so man. Lots of lots of things that he filled that. I don't know if the stars fully dressed it but we'll see that as one guy that we definitely wanted to have but so do you think that so you said that you read somewhere that it was definitely a last minute thing it was it really a last minute thing i i think it was. I mean i think alexi acquis just gonna take however much you could get from whoever it was because that's where he is in his contract life right now like as the cat you need to cash in In age is what i meant. Say you don't see you don't think that that four point five with would come from the stars at all yeah. I don't think we were willing to pay that. I think. I think he probably max out for or you'll probably offered him max for a v. So well let's see i. I don't necessarily believe that if it your net will i if the max was four for nil i would. I would spend the extra five hundred thousand to keep him around ju- just because of the way he played with. Hey skin and i know some people don't like the way that He played with as skin because he said a lot of people said that he was too willy nilly. He wasn't a stay at home. Defenceman enough for mirror His slightly agree with adult care though alexi did did offensive things in. We need that in a team. That can't score goals. So i i mean having a guy that's gonna stay stay behind more and be like like i think he's gonna was more alexi. I security blanket than the other way around. So i think if we can find a way for him to have a security blanket. Which i'm sure we're going to talk about with guy we signed later. I think that will allow him to be more offensive and be more aggressive. Which i think will lead to more points which is what we need from our defensemen to win games obviously from always on playoffs so i think overall it in a weird way this is gonna make hasty better elect being drafted so i mean the responsibility definitely going to go on that top three again the off. It was before this anyway though so but still electricity ever had understand. Alexi still had a portion of that responsibility in the top four and the further. That went along in the past couple of years. The more that you can rely on alexi act being solid you know. Nhl top four defenceman and fortunately definitely taught for at least the and unfortunately. That's exactly why he resigned. So and why he was Taken from the sars. And the other thing i was i was thinking about. Is you know they had him in seattle right. So it's not like he's one of those picks that they take from a team and then immediately flip him for something else no. He's he's easily seattle cracking hit. You say seattle cracking. He is a seattle crack. And say he's a he's a crack nour and i don't know anyone wanna seattle. He's saying seattle he's not going anywhere so That was the other thing. I noticed about him. Being there along with jordan christopher Some of those players. That were there what i read. He said he hopped on a plane the night before so go figure man go figure so all right well anyway put a bow on it. Thank you alexia. Career years in dallas Especially your second Your you know your contribution to that stanley cup. Run in twenty twenty It it's always going to be in the front of my mind and a as a dallas stars fan. I i think. I can speak for chris. we thank you very very much an we know. Good luck to you in seattle from guide you got paid But if you play the sars again we will not be doing you. I promise k. so no stars. Fans are allowed to boo jamie alexi when he comes to town k. Can't wait to seem in those awesome. Jerseys i will say those jerseys. I mean i don't know what is with the last Two teams seattle the seattle expansion. And the vegas expansion but both Both jerseys have been excellent. Ought take don't like vegas. Jerseys really i love the vegas jerseys. I love the big. What we're talking about. We got too much use. Okay i don't like the gold omits though the gold homeless are stupid all right all right anyways all right all right yeah before. We opened the box. That can of worms. We'll talk about that tomorrow gay anyways. So let's get into. Don't give me that look all right. Let's get into this next topic. We're gonna talk about Which is we're going to skip over the draft. We'll talk about that tomorrow because we we both need to do a little bit more Research on that before we get to it But just as a disclaimer The stars got a lot of prospects. I'd i mean we started with Eight picks in we ended up with ten. And i think we got all the players. That that Jim no wanted so. Would you know trading to get to take the lower pig in the first round to get more draft. Picks overall is an amazing move especially in this year's draft because nobody has any idea what players are good right now. it's literally we're getting more shots in our gun to try and hit a target right now. that's all it was. I think those great move sean about that real quick. Yeah and and side note it. People need to stop talking about jim. No like he's an idiot. I mean. I love josh josh. If you're listening. I know you don't know for some of the moves that he's made but i love jim. No i really do. And there's a reason why he's been around the stars for a long time now. Yes he's made some boneheaded decisions in some dart seven stuck with prospects especially prospects. I am vowed to sue skin But you know the the the fact that you know. He's he's never made like a stupid stupid stupid decision. Like some of the contracts that were handed out The past couple of days holy crap. I am so glad by the way that we did not go after. Blake coleman aren't you. Aren't you glad or jones. Nine and a half million dollars for a four. Seth joe seth jones chicago are you insane. Say let another. We'll get more into that but it's hard to stay on track today. All right all right. i'm just gonna signing free agent signings. Here we go okay. So first off mentioned two players that the stars weird new. We're losing but they've already signed contracts. There's others that have not. But these are the two i know for sure. cog liano has signed a one year. Deal to go to san jose and He's i think it was for one point. One million dollars so good luck to andrew cargo. Yano we love display in dallas it. He just couldn't score yet. He's back in california and then also mark pick as much as it was a short time with the dallas stars for mark pick. He was very effective for the stars of for what he was asked to do. Last year with the with whether he was on offense or defense or whatever situation news but into We actually signed him as a defenseman and then most of the time he was playing offense and he did a fantastic job with it so You were adequate. Yes thank you. Pacific and now. The only bad thing for him is he. He is going to where you know all players die. He's going to buffalo so on arizona's we're all players die right. No no no. No no buffalo players are already okay. Real quick Who's worse. Who's a worst franchise. Arizona buffalo worst franchises buffalo but okay whereas team arizona really. I mean technically still. Has jack. I right now so but we all we all know that he's going to be traded before the season starts if he's not traded before the season starts. I will be very highly shocked gay again. We're getting off topic. Okay anyways all right so Holy crap no we heard about one signing a couple of days maybe a day before free agency opened on july twenty eight little bruce little aspects in there. Is you know we expected it. Some people agreed with it. Some people don't Just depends on how you look at the contract. And then everything blows up. And we signed a six or seven guys and very highly address depth within those organizations. So let's start at the top We'll start with the obvious one ryan suter Comes from the minnesota wild on a four year deal where three point. Six five million per season He is thirty six years old so it is a thirty five. A plus euro contract. Where sam we need him he. He hates thirty five year old contracts. Don't know what's your. What's your original thoughts on this deal christian. Any ideas will just like everyone has been saying. It's a great signing but we hate the term but like so that's what everyone is saying. We all know it's not a great term for years. He's going to be playing for the stars. You're going to be under contract for the stars at least when he turns forty. That's good so what. I realistically think this is is that. This is a loner. Because we're trying to win now but he wants the stability to know whether he's gonna be in dallas until the end of his career and that's what it costed for us to get ryan suter to try when a cup with this original core so for that. I think it's worth it. So i think overall the signing is meth plus to give it a meth. Because i wanted ryan suter but men contract sucks well in in this is why. Excuse me This is why. I think that neal was not willing to go above. three point. five ks for alexi. Ac that is. I should go back to that alexi. Aki wasn't willing to go. I mean he he fudged a little bit for suitor but not much right So i mean that's why he alexi Got went decided. Yeah final go to seattle. And he got his payday that makes sense. Yeah i in in so from from nil side. He knew what he was going to do. But none of the stars fans knew what all of these signings holy crap that we were going to get all of these signings Yeah 'cause that extra base that we save from going the suit or instead of resigning alexi act is going to other really good number five defensemen that we signed to. Yes and i'm really excited for that So in so. Let's talk more about suitor. Though do he does get a Movement clause that is the worst part of the contract but did expected right in. Honestly if you're looking at it from ryan suitors perspective. You really blame him exactly what those were. His terms like three point five is nothing for somebody like who's been in the league he is. He was gonna make seven point five million if he wasn't out this year exactly like three point five is like very small for but that's he wants to be able to in his contract and know where he's going to be it he's happy being in texas and then ending his career that was his his terms was the term. He wanted what we're years and he wanted to know where he was going to be. Yeah that's what it took fine. We're not gonna once once. Our core is all too old to actually be good and once we lose radulovich savell ski and we start flirting with. What's going to happen abandoned sagan. We're not going to be contending anymore. That point and that's what ryan suter is going to be in the last last year last two years of his contract so at that point. It's not it doesn't matter that we have three point five that is maybe a seventh advancement even at that point. Well i think it's worth it in two things about that. No movement clause one expansion over so he know general managers a little bit more. Were less frugal with the no movement causes that they handed out this This off season period. Because he didn't have to worry about seattle expansion right in at the cap hit that he's at if he's five or six player you know that's something that you can eat up an nba. Okay yeah when you can live with it. It wouldn't be a great contracts i. It wouldn't be like a it would be would be a bad contract. Would be awful. But that's one of the things i love about now. I'm going to go back to know because he doesn't sign stupid contracts. Like for example. The oh my gosh San jose not brent burns other dude air. Is it carlson carlson. They almost had ericsson da. Carlson thank you That he didn't sign he doesn't stupid contracts like that. That's why we got involved in the first place is because you know the general manager of san. Jose signed him to eleven point. Five million dollar contract. You know agree. This contract isn't stupid. The last two years are are bad but if the first two years or a good then it's worth it right because we're trying to win the cup and the next two is right exactly so souder gave up some of the money that he probably could have gotten elsewhere right and we gave up the fact that we didn't want give him a no movement clause but we gave it to him. Because that's what he wanted and that's why he probably signed with dallas or other teams. That were probably maybe even offering him more money but yeah one year. Four and a half Yet yeah and his age at thirty six ryan suter. He is a guy that you know he. He's got a family he's got. He's got young kids got a wife they want to. They'd like to stay in the same place in in a based off the conversation that he had with bill garin when he was bought out. He's he said it very politely when he added his his interview but Yeah i i mean he was really mad in in in you know. He had a right to be mad with the fact that he was getting bought out like that because he was expecting to stay in minnesota in that unfortunately for him didn't happen So i really don't blame him for that In an from. Jim knows perspective on the no movement clause. I really don't mind it. I really don't i know he is an old guy. I know he's not somebody that you would normally given a movement clause too but ryan suter is a veteran. Defenseman in this league He he fully deserves it. He deserves the money that he got. And then the last point that i make on ryan suter is We were were paying for the last three years for this year alone this first year. This is it whether the weather jim nill admits it or not. This is it. This is the air if we're going to go back and get another chance to go to the stanley cup final and win it with this core like you said this is our last chance. 'cause next year radulescu on podolsky gone. All these contracts are coming off. The books contractors numbers which. I'm glad to hear that. There's an extension. I i i watched Jim knowles a media. Availability right after Free agency after. He did all the signings and he said that Kleinberg was getting like currently was talking negotiations. So i'm glad to hear that. But which how is that possible. He's doing a meeting and talking to clear the same time crazy. You're a door chrish. Talented guy anyways. Okay so ryan suter d. Okay based off for the other signing that. We'll talk about here in a second. Do you see him filling that fourth spot in filling alexi extra. I think it's gonna just be depend on whoever plays better with me row. If mirrow likes playing with souder better or playing with the classic big guy like alexi. It just depends on what works best. I think either one would be fine all right so i'm leaning towards shooter. Yes there's my official answer so all right so we we keep we keep mentioning this guy. We're gonna go ahead and go ahead with him. I before defenseman. Yeah the mystery defenseman who who at his. He has one of the greatest names in the world. This reminds me of yogi pucca member. Your yoki poker. He has a named just like that. His name has hawkin pau hockey. That is so much fun to say. I cannot. I cannot wait for a razor. Just say that for the first time and have some sort of razor ism with hocken pau. Gay hocken. pod comes from the carolina hurricanes. He is a six five holy crap. Big boy. I know that probably a guide to help fulfill that size role Alexia left He signs for a three year deal worth one. Point five million per depending on how you look at this contract does could be a good contract. good value or we could have overpaid him What's your thoughts. Initial thoughts on mr haagen pau. I think this is the best free agent. Signing i have tied tied for the best free agent signing so i think he's twenty nine. It's a three year contract which he's going to be on this team for a while. Still and even if if he does sex trade him because he doesn't have movement clause a nobody. But anyway from what i've seen and heard from other people who watch him often. He's a really like solid defensive guy like he his mindset is defense i he's not really offensively minded at all but he's a solid d guy doesn't really make mistakes. He's always in the right position and of course he's big. We like big big is good so i really love the signing. I think it's super cheap. I think it's cheaper than what deserves from what i've heard at least so i really like signing A couple of things about mr hawkin pau his first name. Yani yani hawkin pa. Sorry i'm gonna keep saying because it's so much fun to say. Anyways he is twenty nine years old split the season between anaheim and carolina. Last season Like you said he. He's not offensive guy. He only had four points in fifty. Seven regular-season games between the two teams but his big thing. He finished third in the league. With two hundred fifteen hits. I'm really excited for that part. I like so he also He played with carolina In the playoffs Showed up with carolina for eleven playoff games In here's another interesting thing about Hocken pau in why he wanted to come to the stars. What are the stars known for christian left handed defenseman good gas but no. He's finished he's another member of the finnish mafia. We have another one to add to that interesting Statistic that i saw on. What's not really statistic. It's more just like a interesting fact That i saw on twitter. The stars will be the first team in any chil- history to have thirty different. Finish players play for their nhl team so that goes to show you why he came to the stars because rope a hint mirror heiskanen yada yada yada yada yada and keep waving Naming them off gear on. I think he wants us from from finland to anyways we like finland yet and obviously so does so does jim nill and then even before jim no The defenseman we had before or the defendant afford the journal miniatures. We had before so realistically that does kind of help with team chemistry and stuff like it is kinda cliche to say that but like having someone who speaks like your native language and his from a smaller country like that like it's easier to become friends with a guy like that because you already have things in common with them so it is a plus right and If we if this guy really does have a huge upside which he might he might he might be a great Defenseman that could fill into that top four slot. Maybe maybe if ryan suitors not up to that. But he's amazing number five right. He's an amazing number five and I mean this is the kind of guy that we know that the stars really like in this is for those of you. That didn't like the fact that alexia jack was very much. You know in the play a lot more so offensively and trying to get involved offensively. This is a guy who could play with me or hey skin. That will not do those things he's going to do. Those things off into defenseman. We'll hear you kill this. The guy you want so anyways Hawkin pau. I cannot wait for razor to say his name. The first time going to be so excited anyways so that's the one of the other big splashes in he actually came later in the day and a i'm gonna let's go ahead and go with the next one That i i give him a good. You get good at you. You're not gonna give him a mid plus he's good he's good a+ gay april from christian say he's a nun a+ not even a naples. Okay just to okay. All right scale. I i love this next signing myself. Just because i've watched him for several years. I know he's on the older side. But i don't care. Lou glendenning from the detroit red wings comes through the stars on a two year deal worth a million and a half each per season. I really like glendening i love. I love just yell. So much i know josh's zim hate it with their stupid advance. Stats but dads dude. The i toby that looting is awesome all right so i really believe that he was signed for one reason and one reason only and what is that faceoffs face us. He is better than ours are pretty good. You know. we're good face off team and he just makes even better like holy crap. I think at one point he in some of the seasons. He's played he's at he's been at like sixty percent win on his face. Off percentage lou glendenning holy crap so. Yeah lassie's i mean. Yeah last season there. You go sixty percent on on a team. That routes really bad in the detroit red wings. They got better but they were still really bad. Last season in it just seems like you know these little things that Kind of pop up to you with certain players. What they do. Do you think jim nill thinks they face offs are really important. Obviously important well some some people decide. Today's nhl it's all about possession. And like they say coaches always harp on puck. Battles puck battles puck battles. I remember the one of the big things that monte talked about. Whenever he was with the stars the first puck battles the face off like. That's what it is so if you win the first puck battle like the first puck battle of the. I don't even know what they call that with. What's what's the time called between whistles. Now play those seems like whatever but if you win that. I talk battle like your art. You're already often an advantage like and if we can like it's going to look like we're going to be dominating face off. We already were like even last season with out tyler sagan. We were still winning face. Most of the time. And like now with lou glendenning on our third or fourth line like they're going to be winning face off faceoffs to like. That's a puck battle. Well that's another talk about all that we're gonna win so i don't know why you wouldn't like it. And so he's basically the replacement for colorado and boy wouldn't upgrade. That is a huge upgrade in mind in in a little bit of dickinson. To in my opinion has dickinson was good on the He was good on the face off. Draw and and on top of a face. Offs glendening can also He can kill penalties. he's he's really only galler. So i i'm honestly shocked that Detroit did not resign him. It only costs us one and a half million bargain. Banning gymnast dino's beast in. He knows what he wants and he got decent contracts for for some of these players The only one. that's that would be kind of iffy. Is the shooter contract. And even then if cedar doesn't pan out This season or or even seasons after it. It's it's not a huge loss to have a a cap that it might hurt us a little bit but it's not gonna not high enough to cripple you right. It's not a seven point five. Av like the contract. Yeah so is other like that. So that's that is a good thing in that. In so one of the things that i i saw that i saw that i heard when i was listening to Jim knowles media. Availability was the fact that after got who said it might have been mike hike. He was saying that the stars could possibly have Five of the top ten Faceoff percentage win people in the nhl next starting next season. So i'm really excited for that. Facts if we can possess the puck and keep it out of her zone. That helps you know. There's what fifty percent of defense now is winning. The puck battle getting it out of his own winning a puck battle on the penalty. Kill like that's immediately. Fifteen to twenty unions off the off the kill youtube very beginning like it. It's a crazy advantage to have like. I think it's way more important than people give credit for well. And that's exactly why players like Nick suzuki i mean the only leave the only fault in his game is that he can't win. Faceoffs i mean. If he can win faceoffs he could be one of the best players in the. And that's we're talking about players way to win. He's starting to win more of those draws especially this past year even last year when he he was kind of filling the role of sagan. It's noticeable because in the big face offs at the end of the games sagan won them he would always win that face off and hence wouldn't and if you're trying to win the game with less than a minute left in your in the offensive zone you lose that face off. That is killer dude like us. Having these awesome face off guys and getting sagan back as another great face off guy is. It's going to be huge. I think it's going to be really noticeable about how much more we have the puck and as a team that does not score well in his doubling down on that scoring well with these signings which i've later it's gonna be really important to have the puck way more than the other team all right. Well let's let's go over these these face off guys for the stars sagan he he improved ever since he's gotten here but i think he's been here for six years now. Six or seven years now always above fifty percent well over. he's over almost always over. Fifty percent Ben even though he's he's started as a winger he transferred to center when the stars were really bad. And they didn't have any center depth He's a good face off man Now we've got glendenning on top of that. He's probably one of the best in the shell. You've got roddick fox who had a rough year this year but we know we know why his hand in hand yeah. Those are important and then We had dickinson for the longest time as well. So man and then The only detriment was ropy hints and romance was no good His his breakout season but last year being heard better he was. He was better in his his numbers. Were getting better so under fifty percent. So it's less than where he wanted but if he's on the line with somebody like oh and joe pavlovsky. What else gays well. He is above fifty percent as well. So you've got all of these guys who could win that face off. I mean think about that. Think about that through the lineup for the stars. There's somebody on every single line. That could possibly win. A faceoff sometimes too can realize face off right exactly so it's just insane the amount of depth that the stars have at that particular aspect and how much jim nill has shown that he feels that is extremely important and that is going to be important because we don't score like i said so with the signs we have these are all the matches are completely matches our style all mattress style. We're doubling down. We are with these signings. I feel like we were trying to be not one of the best. We were trying to be the best team in the nhl and if we can do that and find a way to get the puck more so that we can score more. That's that would work. I think so we get we get back. Get right back. That's a little bit more goal support and if we can have the puck more than the other team then obviously that gives you more of a chance to score it having those two. Hopefully that will lead to win. Right right. I think that makes sense there. There's still some questions surrounding this team is questions on the offense but and this i was actually looking this up earlier today. Like if you look up like the top offensive teams and the top defensive teams. The top defensive teams are all great teams the top offensive teams. Some of them are not good teams. They don't perform well in the playoffs. So defense is obviously more important than offense. I know everybody hates to hear that in the modern. Nhl and offense is so highly praised. And of course. I feel like offense is way more important than the regular season when you get to. The playoffs like teams like the islanders. They are contenders every year. Their offense is below league average on almost every stat and they had consistently making conference finals. Like you don't need that offense new york islanders. You need some offense. You don't need the best offense so we can find a way to get some points if we can find a way for ropy hence to be even better than it was the year before. That's all we need. So defense is more important in the playoffs. 'i love the signings. I love doubling down on the identity of the team overall for free agency. Are we done we. can i get the overall. i already have been overall. I like it we. We still got a lot to talk about too. And so I skipped over this one by accident. I meant to mention this one right after hawkin pob but this is not really a free agent signing. This is more of a extension. He gets his big money. Contracts shoot. we didn't even talk about men we haven't been. I know it's been while man. Yeah we'll be given on doing it. So mary skinny and he signs for eight years so he gets the big money contract and term in minutes and we didn't talk about that i know man and he gets a eight point four or five million dollars per season. Got it done exactly what we needed in exactly what he needed as well pretty much two weeks since this happened so i'm sure y'all had enough of the talk about it but i'll just say especially since the signings that have happened recently. This is a great contract. I love it is going to be a star for almost forever. Hurry and we thought he was going to get. I mean we were talking nine and a half. Maybe two eight and a half would be a good contract and as well we got so any even got a little bit less than eight and a half about fifty s. It's basically and a half yet so okay other players That the stars got over the past couple of Things at some of them are not really big. They're more depth moves and they will get to the one that really scared everybody So another one. They signed Andreas bergmann he split the year between tampa bay in syracuse at He's just a purely a depth move for the stars Same thing with alexander. Patrick alexander pitcher vic kinda comes over From stockton Lead he spent most of the time there and Again another death move. He's kind of an older guy so in case the stars have a lot of injuries and stuff like that. Those are two guys that john never happen. We said that about the four. And that's why we didn't play last year so And then the other resigning skuld point signs a one year to a contract nick. Manna gums back. Kind of one on one year two way contract as well Another you know Contract of note. Michael raffle comes from the philadelphia flyers and It also the washington capitals. He was on both teams for both of those For for both for this past season He's a solid two-way a guy. He's got good hockey sense and He's also big guy he he's got. He's a strong physical presence on that line in on the ice and again just more veterans savvy or depth. If you start play good this year. Hopefully he doesn't find the ice very often though. I think i think he will because i think he would. He's purely a fourth line guy. He's not a guy in so we'll we'll see how that goes hoping to see delay andrea in masher in there is dead but right and we'll talk more about that here in a second about what the lineup may look like Right after this but Any thoughts about any of those contracts just purely death moves anything. All using case everyone gets cova gets hurt again but we all know that never happens and that those guys will never see the ice ever because everyone always as healthy knock on wood all right. Let's get to the uh the scared everybody in not just sent shockwaves through dallas stars world but across the shoot across the hockey world. Mr brandon hobie is a member of the dallas stars comes to the dallas stars on a one year. Two million dollar deal. I never saw this coming. When i first saw the tweets for it. I thought it was a joke. Because it wasn't the tweets weren't coming. It wasn't coming from you. Know darren. Jaeger or franks ravelli. Elliott friedman chris giannini. Those guys what it didn't come from those guys at first and then you know those guys started you know saying yes. This is the thing and i'm thinking. Holy crap we have four. Nhl goal is on our roster critic of four. What's what's your thoughts. Tell me your thoughts. What you're thinking. I thought the same thing when i saw it. I thought it was a joke. I thought they were spoof accounts or something like that. When i first saw it but my thought is crap that means been bishop is not okay. That is exactly what that means that that that is not going really next season so the big question mark for next year. we know. We're going to be defensive team. We know we're going to be good on faceoffs and we're going to be good on penalty kills. We don't over score goals that's up to our individual ford's in our often defensemen of course and we'll talk about that in second to but the number one question mark this season is how good is our goals in again be and who is going to be in the net because we have no idea so the ideal case scenario is that ardinger is our starting goalie. He goes he goes a training camp. He plays amazing. He steals the job and he just he carries this team on his back until we become a dynasty when five cups and he has three trophies and all that that's the ideal situation and hope he's in the back retiring the the bad situation is that khudobin starter hope these the backup and that is in the h. l. And i'm very scared of that possibility. Are you not want that to happen. If that happens i i will be very upset. And we'll be on the fire nil train like literally for that only that reason. I will jump on the train because if we waste another prospect in the h. L. another goalie another goalie prospects. Jack i am a little two point. Oh that can. I will lose my mind. I think jack campbell's whole career was screwed by saying the. Hr that long. I think if he ends up when he was actually ready who knows. Maybe he gained. That confidence is a great goalie like and we don't. We don't trade for ben bishop. We don't we don't need to get on. Tm -i whenever lennon starts up struggling jack campbell and we go win cups that way and we have our offense system and all that jack campbell is just the the wall on the back but jim nill sucks at deciding when prospects should start playing in the nhl. He's terrible at it. So please please. Just let off your play in the nhl. He doesn't have to be the starter just to start off with. He can be he can be the backup or the or the or the one b or whatever. Please don't put andre i will. I will cry. I will literally cry on camera. Lots of thoughts From me here maybe good maybe bad. How good so. Jim nill is very different than some other Gm's some gm's you know they get their star people young guy in the hand the reins to them and they say go win. Be free jim. Nill is not like that. But how many. How many times has that happened. For an nhl franchise will. The penguins won the cup that way. Okay but the blues okay but again and again very few. I don't include joining bennington and this group of players but the group of players that i think of of young players that can drop in and just immediately start making impact connor mcdavid. Sidney crosby alexander michigan. That's that's probably where my list ops right there. I don't include nathan mackinnon. I don't include a dry cycle in that conversation In it's just because of how the nhl they love youth it they value youth in the nhl. Nowadays it's been going younger and younger and younger and instead of the prime being you know twenty seven. I think that age has dropped to lake. Twenty four twenty five or a player is in his prime. The thing i don't want to see happen to and is what happened. Carter heart and i've mentioned this before. Carter heart was given the reins to the to the crease without any competition so there is nobody that was going to take his spot. Not even brian elliott. When he was there and he had a good a really good season. Neil good couple of seasons this past season though holy crap. I'd not good whatsoever at all in this story discussion. I mean the flyers missed the playoffs partially on the fact that they could not keep goals out of their own. It i mean there were even gains. That carter hurt wasn't even on the roster. He wasn't even the backup so he couldn't have even played that night even if they wanted him to so in a way. I understand what jim nill is doing. Am i one hundred percent behind what he's doing. No because auden ger has proven himself. He has shown that he is capable of being a good goaltender. I don't know if he can be a starter right now but definitely a tandem goaltender with somebody else with another with another. You know another good decent goaltender so you agree. He at least needs to be a backup at the very least. He can't be in the ahl so this that comes to my second thought. If you're jim nill you want. You're sitting on the bench backup if he doesn't get in if the plan is for him to not at least get half of the games in the nhl. He needs to be playing in the ahl. That's my eyes. That's my thinking. If i'm jim no i'm not saying i agree with that but that's what i'm saying. I'm trying to read his mind. What i'm thinking. When you listen to the to the again i'm going to go back to this To this post game post game to this media availability interview that he had with all the stars media guys. He wants more competition for injure. He doesn't want to just give injure the rains in khudobin still there. If bishop is ready to go for training camp which. I don't think he will be And he's he's not you know he could be there and then now he's going to be there so if bishop was still healthy often would not take the starting job away from bishop. Right correct i would. You would agree with that right correct. He would take it away from khudobin. Yes but he but he wants to make sure that andreas fully ready and he wants more competition for auditor. I'm not saying i'm agreeing with this one hundred percent. I'm understanding it. But i'm not agreeing with it. Icu shake in your head. But do you understand the thought process. If you're jim now yes but the only way it makes sense is if you trade you trade khudobin like. That's the only way it makes sense. You can't you can't have. You can't have those three guys on the roster at the same time in my opinion you you're gonna scratch a goal every night like that. That can't happen. I don't think like that's not reasonable like y- there's going to be competition either way whether it's hopi or khudobin. They're they're both decent. Goalies still does allergy talk forever. Sh- stewart does figure out that for whatever reason he's going into a sophomore slump or going to have those guys we're going to be decent enough so that if our team is good we will still be a good overall but there's no f. three there's not an unless you're gonna scratch either your job in every game and then that's a lot of money that you're not even gonna have on on the bench so it only makes sense if you'd open a straight in my opinion that's the only way it makes sense and then trying to free up cap space for something else. That's the only way make sense in my mind. And if khudobin is not traded and auditors. Nhl that's insane to me. I would wholeheartedly disagree with it. Like have already said so. Who do you expect. Let's just say that bishop is not ready because it from obvious. I think that's one hundred percent obvious if he comes back at all for that fact. so who's the tandem. Tandem is holding dinger. In my opinion. There's no other option. That's the only option if you open if you'd even if though been outplays are outperforms hobie at training who can't go to training camp khudobin has to be traded before training camp starts. What are you gonna do put on them to not that. I'm telling you right now. Chris basically from what. I saw what i watched in that press conference. That is not going to happen. That's that's ridiculous that's crazy. In my opinion what why are why are we having two million dollars and a three point. Five million dollar goalie fight each other and training camp to be the backup to someone who gets paid less than a million. I don't know the i understand why he did it. I don't necessarily agree with it. I don't understand what a competition either way. But not really yeah. If it opens goalie he would have been good competition. If bishop is hurt if bishop is one hundred percent hurt there's no way point is coming in the only two people that the only two goaltenders you'd have as you would have a khudobin honor tandem like a normal nhl hockey team but right but that is what you're missing my point. That is not what jim nill wants. He wants competition between. He doesn't want to. Just give her the ray moore the competition for the starting job. It's who's the best goal. It's like exactly what happened. It says it's a three way right now to have a three way competition for going. It doesn't happen in an normal hockey team. That's so much money wasted on on competition. But we're met again he. He obviously doesn't feel one hundred percent for sure about art or khudobin which is why he went out. And kat holy hobie in okay. So let's leave that discussion for another day. But what i do want to talk about is hopefully numbers are not good. That said all the petition. Yeah and sucks. Hobie does he. The past couple of years. He goes a training camp. We buy them out after training camp. No that will that will that will not happen. So gosh can't happen that's not. Let's talk about a couple of positives with which is totally because the so he does have stanley cup Stanley cup final. You know oh my gosh experience. I can't think of the word second experience. Okay the one of the greatest of all time is the only got final. Yes that's true. Okay that's also true but he hasn't been the same since then and in vancouver hugh is behind a really bad defense gore in vancouver and coming to here. I think we are defensive. Core in our defensive style way we play can make any goaltender look good. There is no doubt he will go look at new york. Varlamov varlamov is. I would say in above average goaltender but he looks great because of the style that they play. Same thing was sarokin. He was a rookie last year and they were so they were so physically. You know making sure that their defense side of their game was locked down. That sarokin didn't have to be tested all that much. I mean they had that one game where they later. Goose egg it was like eight. To zero reagan's Tampa bay but other than that game. They were sound defensively from the other games that i watched So i think that brayden whole becoming here could be a good thing for him. And i think he could be good enough for the stars if he has to be an option. I hope he's not. I still think it'll be a khudobin. Auditor tandem this upcoming season and i think hope be at she. I don't know maybe straight now. But i give this signing two poops too i i like your your rating system here. Chris is very good. It's very accurate. Scientific scale is me. What is wrong with you. okay anyways just to throw some stats up. Put a bow on it and then we'll talk about our who cares segment for tonight. I don't even want to say these kids are so bad. Seven eleven in three yearly. She would only played twenty one games with vancouver this past season. Three point six seven goals-against average in eighty nine save percentage holy crap. That's that's bad. That's just just robot so This is a guy who he's been a trophy winner. He's won the stanley cup He helped capitals. Earned the William jennings trophy Back in twenty sixteen twenty. Seventeen i. I don't know what else to say about this man. This whole situation has me completely confused. So final thoughts. I'm bring home acres already. Gave it to poops to poops. Okay all right That is not all of the news. Obviously we'll talk about way more news afterwards but before we get to our Our care segment for tonight which is going to be. Fun can be interesting Let's just look at a potential stars. Lineup this is what would i put together. Based off of all the after all the signings and stuff so line one hints pavillon sqi robertson Stays on the right side. He's not a senator agreed. Good like okay. We'll do it in a line to sagan roger off and i put gary enough. That's our second line. We'll see we're on a falls. I feel like he's going to have a better season. So we'll play. I feel like he fits better with those two as well. So i want to mention this right now because a lot of stars fans did not like the fact that this was not addressed in free agency but they wanted another top six player could score goals. We have seven top. Six guys bright. That's exactly what i was thinking too. And they're in a lot of them. Were either hurt or had seasons or whatever order been who's unfortunately it had multiple bad seasons in right and third line. This is who i put. I put a been a key rounds And i put a raffle there as well. I guess you could put raffle or glendening there. That's a i want raffle to be healthy. Scratch in my in my personal opinion. I don't think he's i don't i don't love him. But so who would you. Who would you put as your third line. Then our put a delay andrea or i. I really wanna see masher on the lineup. I feel like if he has a good training camp. He can work his way in there. Well what about damiani. There are so many so many players in on enough roster spots in general. I prefer i prefer a younger guy who has scrapped his way to a roster spot rather than a defensive minded veteran who really is just a guy who can't score and figured out a way to stay in the nhl again that third needs to score for the star this year defensive against the mind somebody give them a chance. They're hungary i would prefer that especially on a team. That's already old. You know speaking of raffle. I know what he scored this past season. Nothing yeah we're eleven points. Eleven points in forty four games so that. Yeah so that's so. You know what i take that back i i wanna see one of those guys up there too. I wanna see some younger guys. Change your mind and real tongue dead yet. Good all right and then for your fourth line. I guess since while i'll say i want damiani m asher in up there with bin i'll put Dang that's a good fourth line fox glendenning komo. That's a good for line one. That's what i'm saying is good but the goal is just terrifies. Me dude agreed legal. Play y- yeah we we. Where's where's josh. With his cardboard sign that says free hot injure we need it all right and that leaves us with our Our defense we're not even talking about the goaltenders because we already did. But i'm gonna say clean. Bergen ladele stay together. I'm going to say. Hey skinning suitor and i'm gonna say hawkins sector and i know there's a lot of people that are going to say Heart to see harley up here hardly doesn't need to be playing in the bottom three or the bottom two. Excuse me in the in the third pairing the bottom too. So i think it's going to be sick around honking paw and i think that's our our lineup for the are possible lineup. For the stars parley has crazy good camp and sicker it. Doesn't i would be in there. I would be happy with it. I feel like he would get enough minutes especially if he's playing well because i think that there appears great if especially harleys in their. That'd be crazy. Good third pair. They would they would play a lot more than the third period. Did last season. So i would be. I would be fine with hardly being in that in that spot over. Sarah agreed hundred percent. So i don't know why i have a feeling. The secret is going to be bad but i do well. And you know we heartburn. I'm so much. And then when we don't talk about him that's a good thing because it means he's doing his job job lesson hobby noticeable and any any en for portions of the season. He wasn't so that was a good thing. So anyways That's gonna do it for us for the stars portion we're gonna get into our who care segment for the evening Our nobody cares. Nobody cares segment for the evening where we talk about anything but hockey so four. It was called. who cares. who cares. Who cares who gives a crap about who cares so anyways for who care segment. This evening we are talking about our top three favorites summer olympic games. So you wanna go first. You want me to go. I will do the pass it back and forth thing. We'll start at number three. Okay all right you. I mean i I'll go ahead and go. I go ahead okay. Number three because it is hilarious. We have artistic swimming. How is that a sport. If you're gonna call artistic swimming board. You have to call marching band of sport. And i don't think marching band is a sport all right moving onto you. Can you imagine a marching band olympics olympic the olympics of marching band the united states would win that hands down. It wouldn't even be close. Japan has some good margin. Okay you know what never mind okay. Japan wins that is very true. Okay for mine number. Three i put gymnastics. I love i love. And i know that's very broad because there's very different things about gymnastics but i enjoy watching all gymnastics. The women's side in the mid side Just the fact that some of the things that those guys and ladies can do blows my every living mind You know on a side note. I it was really sad to hear about Simone biles dropping out of the dropping out of the olympic games But it allowed for other members of the women's team usa team to kinda shine through so it was. It was good in that aspect and it was mostly from a mental health side that she That she kind of dropped out. So i don't think it was necessarily a physical side so There that she was hurt or anything so anyway shadow to her. Hopefully she's okay. Hopefully we'll see her at the next olympics or whatever but Yeah anyways number. Three to six all right. What's your number two all right. My number two. What are you actually looking at a list your listeners i have. Oh you will list absolute dirt. I'm just doing this. Based off of the number two will be legit on number two. And we're going to give it to water-polo as fun to watch have you watched. Water polo is fun. It is so cool. Those guys kind of like hockey whereas like you're playing you're playing a ball into net game. I grew like soccer hockey lacrosse. Hamble handball bulletin. That game while doing something. That's difficult like standing in standing in running and soccer. It's not that difficult but boy you just open akin to worms for soccer fans looking the stamina required for that. Okay yes but they about the stamina required for water polo is way more. Trice treading water and then try standing in an olympic pool. On top of that. I agree with you. Actually get it yeah. Water polo awesome sport. And they like each other. that's hilarious. Yeah so i i. Actually that was going to be my number one. I'll put it up my number two so that our our our number ones are different but I had water polo at one. I love watching water polo. It's so much fun to watch It just the. I mean for all the things that you said to just the amount of strength and stamina you have to have in order to one stay afloat so you know people who can't swim that they're already impressed with that to you have to be able to you know. Stay in contact with your team and trying to figure out to score a goal that way on top of that and you know all the all the other stuff that goes along with that as well so I mean you already hit all on the head. So i'll leave it at that What's your number one chris. What's number one. The number one summer olympic game is handball really. That's not something i expected from you. I thought you would think handball is stupid. I choose handle because it is stupid. Rules handballed the rules of handle is to take a ball in your hand and throwing the net is let in huge to make it harder. You can't get close to the net. The court is shades like has too big half circles where the goalie stands and nobody else literally. Nobody but you can jump into this. That doesn't make sense. You're only made that rule that you can jump into the circle because it looks cool. Allying throw that nixon and dribbling part zero sits like they just dribble for no reason. It seems like sometimes. Maybe i just and i definitely don't know the rules but they just dribble for no reason like the athletes. That do this game. I feel like these are all the rejected athletes. The reject that is so mean. These guys are playing basketball right. They could make basketball so they switched to. I dunno tennis or something. Mega ten is either. Then they switched to swimming or diving actually diving diving either and then they finally made their way to handle. And they're they're killer on the handball. Court bro look at some of those guys. Those are not like a one athletes right. But that's what makes it great. This is a wreck sport. That's being broadcasted on national. Tv for millions of people to watch and it's a wreck. Sport is what it looks like. It looks like a made up export. I i wouldn't be surprised if like literally texas wreck. Sports didn't make up this game here. It's great so before i give my now. I wanna give shout outs here to uncontrollable gamer. Ninety seven i'm not sure what four but rifles is what i watched that you know. That's another good one at. I enjoy watching. That gives some of that. Take some real marksman ten meter rifles pretending. There's nothing yeah. I don't know whether it back up brew. Yeah so yeah. Sat out uncontrollable gamer ninety-seven. Thanks for thanks for tuning in man and Thank you for your common as well in joining in on that my number one and i changed it because water polo was gonna be my serious number one But this is my nam serious number one race walking reading that the whole time. Yeah i cannot but legitimately like the form you have to have for race walking like it's super specific like have you have you. Have you watched. Yes anything on the floor. I it's still it's so dumb. It is so dumb it makes no sense whatsoever why to have race walking exactly like handle so. Both of our number wins are stupid. I guess so okay. Well that's why the olympics are great. Nobody watching so they can go and watch a sport. They've always the reason. The olympics are great is because he watched sports. You have no idea about. It's amazing so of course we're going to pick those things. That's what the olympics are. All about is watching a bunch of athletes that aren't really the best at sports compete on a national level for fake pieces of precious metals. So sort of lovely thought in this podcast men. Just just a thing. I'm i'm looking at this race. Walking thing there's some history it made its debut in the olympics in nineteen. Oh four in. St louis has been around for over one hundred years. I didn't know that. I thought that was running it. This is the dumbest thing ever and and for some reason. There was literally one year where i sat down and i watched it and i don't know why because they're i guess there is nothing else go. There was nothing else on. Oh i remember. I was waiting for. I was waiting for men's volleyball because the team. Usa was doing really well and it right before it happened to be race walking. I can't remember how many years ago that was but raise walking for the guys that didn't even chance. So if you didn't make if you didn't make Soccer then you've got relegated to handball and if you didn't even make the handball team get relegated to race walking. Oh man oh man how you practice for that public like. It's so awkward. Right you can imagine is thinking about that. I can't imagine okay. We're going to end this off tonight because we got another long podcast tomorrow that we're going to have to talk about everything else that happened. Just hinton marc andre. fleury filled grew. Our we'll talk about that tomorrow night. thank you guys for tuning in a long christian chambers. I'm ryan Michio follow us on twitter grams. Instagram's snap snap book saw. Let's jazz in thank you.

I am ryan and We're here to you live on wednesday night a little late but it's it's fun. Chris is finally get to do with this off season stuff right. Yep it's hard to find things to talk about a little bit. Spent quite all the gm's or on vacation right now right as especially after you know the craziness of july with Stanley cup being awarded later than normal. And then it was just like boom boom boom. Nhl lynch you draft Expansion draft and then you know H regency and after that it was august. Nothing so but we still got some things to talk to you. Guys about There's mostly we're going to talk about a kind of like the line combo's for the will will do that last. Because that's the more interesting thing for us and also for you guys who are listening to us on the podcast side. Hello to you guys on the podcast by the way and We're also gonna start with just some recent news again. There's not a lot but we're still going to start with that and then we also wanted to touch on a little bit about this article that came out in the athletic It was about a couple of days ago and it's about the nhl executives being concerned with season ticket sales and we'll get into more depth about that As we go on throughout the night. So let's just go ahead and get started Gershon got anything going on fancy in the world that you wanna tell our listeners about or not really Well i work at tech store. So i'm sure most y'all know that by now but anyway So we had about twenty five computers. That were delayed for eighteen to twenty two weeks though. So i am. Yes i got. I got to tell all those customers about that. They were very happy to hear that from me. So i'm just full of love and joy from all kinds of people today right well for me. We start school tomorrow so Our first day of school is a thursday like he's grown. Who does that. Thursday anyways okay. So that's what's going on our life but you don't care so let's get into this story things okay so a lot of the news. Coming from this past week was mostly about a lot of signings. In a lot of extensions that are coming up The first one that comes to mind obviously is is kind of a big one for me is the uc sorrows extension so uc sorrows got paid. He's got a four year contract with which in my opinion that's like the perfect length for somebody who wants to stay in a city for a period of time and he's he got it for about five million dollars a season so good for him. Good for you sorrows in just a shout out to him especially because you know as a short dude you know. He's a short goaltender mad props to him play in that position when you know most of the goaltenders nowadays are you know six three in up. So yeah i would like to see him not with the predators because for some reason he always beats us what is that about. Uc sorrows and the stars. He even even when rene was good sorrows would always beat us when he was playing in as a backup so is it's just annoying. Well it was rene for the longest time as well and it wasn't until that playoff series win john. Klingenberg scored the goal in game. Six in overtime that Us to the second round. I think it was twenty. Nineteen right there. Twenty eighteen one of the two and like that was like the first time where i finally felt like. Okay the curse is broken. It's no longer there but Anyway i stars fans the the big thing about this particular bit of news with the whole signings in extensions thing is yes. We've had a lot of signings with three agency and everything but on the klingberg front. There's nothing which is a i. I shouldn't be concerned. 'cause i mean it's august in offseason. Nothing's going on. But you know some people have shown third you a little bit of concern with this. Should we have any concern right now. Christian with the clegg situation. I don't think so. I mean i think i think this year he was gonna he. I don't think he was gonna sign this offseason no matter what i think. It's possible that we get assigning during the regular season of this year. But i think they wanna wait and see how he's doing to see if you can get a big boost 'cause if he comes out and has a a norris performance kind of year. He's gonna get paid a lot more than he would if we we pay him right now so i'm sure his agent wants to wait and honestly it might be fine for us to wait as well. Well yeah if you're the stars you don't wanna wait right. I mean i. In my opinion. I mean what if he has like a monster season right now lately. Let's just say he scores sixty points which is insane for a defenseman. I mean adam. Fox did it but let's say kleinberg an insane year. How much is he worth. Then in especially with all the contracts that have come out recently With all the. I mean freaking says jones getting nine and a half million dollars that stupid and then Who who am. I thinking i mean dougie. Hamilton got paid to yes dougie. Hamilton got paid too. But he's worth it but still defensemen are getting paid. So i'm scared. That's going to translate to next season. And if he has a giant season next year he's gonna demand ten eleven million dollars. He's gonna get ten or eleven million dollars. I think if we're smart we give it to him. So that's what i hope. So you really think he's gonna get ten million dollars even if he doesn't have a monster season next season so he has to have a good season from to get ten million. I think if he has the same season he had he had last year this year which was still a good season. Really season for klingberg gap. He would still get paid around what. Hey skin is getting in. that's i mean. I really don't expect him to get more than hey skin. I i really don't read. You could probably make some arguments that you know. All i've been around for a long time. I deserve to get paid a little bit. Which he does so you know. Maybe i see him in the nine million dollar range eight and a half million dollar range something like that. If we get him signed this off season if he has a terrible season who knows maybe a little bit less maybe eight million but if he has a monster season that price goes up. And he's he's going to be asking for ten ten and a half million so i mean. What are your thoughts on that. Do you think that's about right or do you think ten and a half million two million i i hope he has to get paid two and a half million because that means he had a good season if he had a good season and the stars probably had a good season so in a roundabout way. I hope we have to pay that much. That'd be a great problem to have okay monster season off to the side. Let's just. Let's just talk about expectations from drunk klingberg. What's your expectations from john. Clean berg if you're jim nell rick bowness. Whoever i expect you'll play the same as last year. I think this is his kind of plateau. In my opinion. I don't think he'll really get much better than what he is right. Now see his prime right now or maybe a little it. I think he's his prime right now. He's he's nowhere passes prime. He's in it right now. I'm not sure how much better he could get. He might have a good season. Like a really great norris contention season in one of the next. Maybe five but i don't think he's going to be consistent like erik. Carlson was When he was in when he was the senator so long enough may go on a tangent there in a second. Because you know it's something we didn't talk about that we were going to talk about but it may be a good idea to talk about now. We'll we'll get to that here in a second. But honestly if i am jim nell. I want to see exactly what i saw last season. Maybe a little bit more production. Maybe it's just just in goals though you mean right because his assists were crazy. Yes exactly. I mean he's gonna get those assists because you know. He's the power play quarterback other than mirror. Hey skin may either on the first or second unit. So he'll he'll get his assists just because you know. That's one of his. Strong suit's is getting that puck through the you know through the wall of penalty killers or even if it's five on five is getting them through the other teams defense. That's huge strong suit of his so but i would like to see more goals from him I i mean if he gets. Let's just say he gets fifteen. Plus that's monster season that's insane. That's the rose into actually my my expectation to him. Maybe seven or eight goals if he gets ten. That's perfect and so ten. Ten would be absolutely perfect for john klingberg if he wants to get paid this off season and you know if i'm jim nill i'm Letting him know my expectations on and I mean that's what. I expect. Ten goals so Let me go on site tangent here for a second. This is not something we were going to talk about. But i wanna talk about the norris the norris trophy for a second all right. So here's the argument from a lot of people nowadays a lot of what is the norris trophy for. Let me just ask that flat out. Officially it is for the best defenseman. Best defenseman okay. Now that is extremely vague right leaving so now based off of what you see the past couple of seasons even going back all the way to eric. Carlson what is that. Trophy awarded to highest scoring. Defenseman hiring defenseman right so arguably like when erik carlson was in you know inaudible. He was a great defenceman. No give me wrong. He was putting up points like crazy was he. The best defensive defenseman though was he the best all around defenseman and the argument with some would be no. Yeah i would say no. But i mean that's just. The nature of that position in in our sport is just that there's no real good way of showing defense with stats like we have plus minus the best like generic in like most right aims thing we use and we always talk about how it's a how it's terrible. It's a flawed system. Yeah especially over a long period of time exactly. Because if you're on a bad team you could be the best defense men in the world but if you're goalie let's in half the shots and nobody else is playing. Then you're plus minus is going to be terrible and that's how i feel asthma darlene. Right now i really do if you're on the ice more. Your plus minus is more likely to be fluctuating. Than if you don't play as much right so let me get to this. Let me get to the question that kind of spawned this whole idea should the nor'easter phoebe be given to the best offensive defenseman the best all around events or the best defensive defenseman and then what if an pick one of those three in obviously there needs to be a solution for the other two slots right if that makes sense So what what. What would you put as a solution. Because i have one. I reject all solutions and substitute my own solution whereas the norris trophy is the mvp trophies for defenseman whichever defenseman is the most valuable defenceman for their team in my opinion should be the north shore winner so if carson so can i liked the hart trophy but for specifically for defenseman. 'cause defense better never gonna win the hart trophy right. We rarely see that i. I'll go look and see when the last time Defenseman one the hart trophy was degan but anyway if you make it the mvp trophy of defenseman you're saying exactly would. It is like the that way. You're living at subjective so it can't be a defensive guy or it can't be an offensive guy but it's the guy who has the most impact is is what i think. It should be all right. So i honestly have a solution for all of this and what i what i think it should be. Is that the north if we should be the best all around defensemen and in my opinion and thankfully we don't have to here ranger fans on this or anything but i don't think adam fox was the best defense in the league this past season. I think they just made a big enough ruckus you in fandom or whatever especially the rangers that they convinced enough people in the media the pow hp the professional hockey writers association or whatever to select adam fox as their winner rather than victor hedman. I still think. Victor hedman she got shafted just kind of almost kind of like a vascular got shafted as well and i think people i think part of it was people just did the lightning win trophies. So just because they're so good i i. I don't think that people would come out in. Honestly say that but in the back of their mind. I think that's what some people are thinking. I'm going to give this to somebody else. Who was as good on their team. If not better but in so my solution for all of this is that you create another trophy that recognizes a defensive defenseman right so i mean think about just makes both trophies less special though i disagree i i completely disagree because you have. Here's my thing you have all of these trophies for point-getters right you know the rocket for the most goals you've got like you know the hart trophy. I mean honestly still should be looking at up but how often is given to a a vincent. It's never never maybe paul coffey. I'm just guessing off the top of my head. But i mean defensemen really truly only have one trophy that they can go for and you know everybody has says oh. This guy is a norris candidate. We talked about john klingberg before mirror. Hey scan came around and now we're seeing about mira. Hey skin as well. The fact is there's you know hundreds of i wouldn't say hundreds dozens and dozens of defensemen in this nhl. But there's only one trophy and it can only be awarded once a year. So maybe recognize different faucet. Facets i think that's the word facets of the game for defenseman because honestly that is a part of the game that is coming out now. Ofensive defensemen are becoming more and more prominent in our game. Just because it's getting faster. I mean we didn't really have much of that long time ago. We had brian leetch. You know the great american player. I mean already mentioned paul coffee but now there's more you could name four five offense of defensemen. There's two in the dell stars alone. So i really think that the solution for this is creating another trophy and i don't know what to call it but i mean think about people like esa lindell gets no recognition. He gets paid. Yes five and a half million. That's great but he's not recognized for the things that he does for this team and ends completely on the defensive side. How often did how did we look at the stats and linda had played six seven minutes of. Pk time and they in that power play of the opposing team had gone like over for every game. Exactly right exactly. So i mean i. I know this is kind of a little bit less. So but like jacob slaven in carolina. He's a great example. Not crazy offensive. Defenseman yes he puts up numbers but he is more on the defensive side of the game. So i feel like that. Those players need to be recognized more. Sorry random changing that we weren't gonna talk about. But yeah i mean what's your thoughts on. That was just curious. I think that's true but having to trophies like that makes them both less special in my opinion is right now the norris trophy special because that's the one for defenseman you know if that's what you think of what's a trophy for advancement. Oh it's the norris but it doesn't. It wouldn't really work. I think if there's to like it it would just make two guys be the mvp which is pretty lame. But there's not too mvp's there's like heart trophy winner and there's a rashard winner and they're two very different things in very obvious so yeah all right so i've got that so the last time that the defenseman one the hart trophy was the nineteen ninety nine two thousand season and that was chris pronger when he was with who is. He went to saint louis blues and that was that. So it's it's been over twenty years since a defenseman has won the heart the hart trophy. So you're telling me in twenty years there hasn't been a defenseman that probably could have outplayed any of those go goaltenders or Forwards that you know that won that award. That's just me but whatever doesn't matter that much. I thought it was interesting. Yeah there's been seven defensemen in his in the history of the hart trophy. That of one will not seven defensemen seven times a defensive as wanted. Bobby orr won it three times and again there's another offensive defencemen that it was not normal in the back in the late sixties early seventies. And that just wasn't a thing. Okay anyways let's get. Let's get going so sorry random tangent but that's a good. That's a good topic to talk about. I thought that was kind of fun anyways. Next thing we want to talk about. That's kind of going around twitter. In the social media world's is that the nhl executives have wait. There's more news you the thing. You've been posting all about on twitter. The that's what i'm doing is moving on moving on yet until i was rudely interrupted. Okay keep going keep going the. Nhl approved a three inch by three and a half inch. Add on the jerseys for the twenty twenty two twenty twenty three nhl season. So that's not going to be for. This season obviously is going to be for next season. All right and the location of these ads will be on either one or the chest okay. I would guess it's probably the opposite of where the sea or the i would be because you know you're captain so as to have the and then they'd have the add on the other side but you know you and i. It sounds like because we very briefly texted about it. Sounds like we're on opposite. Sides of of this issue people are some people are freaking out about it and i wouldn't say you're freaking out about it and then some people are more whatever. What's your initial thoughts on this whole thing or first of all i don't like it adds on. Jerseys is it looks tacky. The nba did it. Looks bad. I don't think it looks good. Having the wish. Logo on your lakers jersey is. It looks tacky in my opinion. Also whenever they start selling jerseys for the twenty twenty two twenty three season. They're going to have the ads on it. They just better. We'll have the ads on it. That has been confirmed but an every other sport. If you go by lakers jersey right now. It's going to say wish on it if you go by f c barcelona jersey. It's heaven whatever. The heck fricken giant logo. They have on their chest is. So you're gonna pay for an ad and you better believe the price of the jerseys not going to go down. So you're gonna just you're going to be paying the same amount to walk around with the billboard on your on your shoulder which is stupid. It's ridiculous and honestly it's just gonna it's gonna make the jerseys look worse if there's any color these logos. I'm going to be really upset so we have our against. At and t. sponsored helmets and they did the white at and t. which it looked fine if there's a blue. At and t. logo on our victory green sweaters. That'd be weird. That would look terrible. I don't think they're stupid enough to do that. But i i don't know wolsey but i don't like it at all. Think it's an eyesore having to to pay for an ad you're gonna pay to an ad around. That's crazy so i just don't like it. I don't like it either but here here's my thought about it and i kind of put. My thoughts on twitter earlier might have been instagram. One of the two. I forgot the nhl loss over three billion dollars over the course of the last year and a half when the when the pandemic shut everything damaged down this is the way that they are trying to recoup assets that they had. They're trying to get back to that. I think they were like four point. Eight million dollar per projection for that Twenty nineteen twenty twenty season before it shut down and they're just trying to get back to that so that they can start raising the salary cap again. You raise a salary cap players get money players get money. We have arche to watch. That's my biggest thing i don't. I don't think getting chills anywhere close to being in danger of anything like that right now. Like five years from now and they haven't done anything to gain more money or ticket. Revenue hasn't bounced back like we think it will been. Yeah maybe you'd have to explore possibilities like this. But they're not they're not saying. This is like a temporary thing either. This is a thing that is going to happen and is going to stay so bad bounce back to their normal. The ads still going to be there. There's going to be making more money off of it and having our game look more bed. We'll see i don't agree with that i. I don't agree with that. That thinking. I understand what you're thinking i just don't agree with it. The thing is is that more than any major sport okay. Let's take the four major sports in north america. Okay so american football for our uk listeners. Because i know there's a lot of uk listeners. i can't say football without saying american footballer the otherwise they'd be like lou nadu whatever. Ns exactly anyways american football basketball baseball hockey. And i think it's in that order of revenues. All right football has enormous contracts enormous. Tv contracts so when they they didn't they also didn't really go through the pandemic as much as the other sports dead. 'cause their season was over right before the pandemic shut. Everything down. Basketball again has huge. Tv contracts mlb has bigger contracts than the nhl but not as big as the nba. So they don't have to worry about it as much either the thing with the age and that's a majority of the money those three leagues make still over. Fifty percent of it is tv revenue. That's not the case with the nhl. The nhl is still mostly reliant on gate revenues from season tickets from whatever kate ticket ticket sales that still their main thing and until their product goes up. More where we can get better. tv contracts. It's going to be that way. So they're just trying to recoup the money that they lost and on and i don't wanna get into the other stuff yet. 'cause we're jump in a little bit but it got regret. It's not recouping the money that they lost though they're implementing something that's going to continue in perpetuity like that isn't gonna go away. Probably right your money back. You're probably right but for right now. The it's you know the the players are in a lot of debt to the nhl owners in the nhl earners are trying to get back the money that they lost. Then the thing that i that i i know a lot of people are like oh will these owners are all you know greedy and stuff like that and i totally get that thought because some of them probably are but the thing is is that if these owners don't have money there's no team and if there's no owner to support the team the team sucks right. We saw that with the stars win. tom hicks screw the stars over any add to declare bankruptcy and he sold the team to a bank or something like that and the team was mediocre at best for those periods of years. And then tom guard comes along and now the stars have done better so people have to understand that money and makes the world go around and makes hockey work if we want to have. Nhl and we wanna be able to watch the stars. Tumbler already has to make money. So that's just my whole thinking of it. The idea that we're in danger of the owners not having enough money to keep their teams operating or the right now yet money and it's not true right agreed right now but if we're getting ahead we it would be perfect to segue into the next thing but we can't we'll we'll talk about that here in a second okay so before Before we go into that next part about season tickets and stuff. We'll talk about that but let's get into the one signing. I did wanna talk about because this was really interesting. I did not see this coming to be totally honest with you but big jumbo joe. Big joe is now a member of the florida panthers. The florida panthers have done some excellent signings over the past couple years and i mean they were second in the central division last year beating out tampa bay even and they went out and got even more players. I mean sam right. Sam reinhart alone scares the crap out of me The fact that. He's on that stacks. Florida panthers team and then they go out and get big jumbo. Joe so does. Does that mean that. The florida panthers could be considered as a stanley cup contender right now. Which starts on that. Obviously thornton thinks so. I mean we all know. There's only one reason he's going there right now. That's one is up and he thinks that that team can do it. I definitely think that they can. I think they're definitely at least at least a good playoff team. Without a doubt. I feel like if they have a really good regular season they could definitely be contender. But get a lotta this so these are the players. Did they have on their their team right now. And this is insane So alexander barkov. Johnson hubert of those guys have been around for forever for the For the florida. Panthers you got carter for hagi who scored eighteen goals last season in forty three games. He was on. He was on a thirty. Go pace you've also got sam bennett. Who they traded for from calgary and they stole him from calvary. I think it was like two second-round picks them for and when he came over he was basically a point game in the regular season after he got traded to florida. You've also got anthony declare. Who didn't have a fantastic season. But he's still a good middlesex. Guy scored tangles three games. I take that from some of the stars players right now. I mean patrick. Corn quiz frank. Retron also scored eighteen goals in fifty six games. I mean patrick. Corn quist is. He's thirty four. He's still course. Scored fourteen goals forty four games. And then you look at their blue line. They've got mackenzie wieger. Aaron lag gustav forsling roddick. goot goodness. I mean that's still a fantastic blue line. It's a little weaker than the stars. But it's it's still good. And then in that you got sergei brodsky. Who definitely will bounce back i. I can't see him. You know sucking it up again. He will bounce back. And then you've got a young spencer night as your backup i mean. That's that's a scary looking team. I don't know if they're a stanley cup contender now but they differently. Didn't back down when they thought that they could get more players and make themselves look like a stanley cup. Contender they can. That's scary roster. What do you think they're definitely getting further last year. At least yes so anyways. I just wanted to mention that because joe going to florida. A lot of people were joking. He's retiring early is getting everybody goes to florida to retire. That's gotta be nice to though. Honestly i'll take that and can you imagine the weather difference going from toronto to florida. Lovely lovely ain't no not to mention. The restrictions are much more relaxed in florida than they are in toronto So okay anyways mentioned that all right so good like to jumbo joe. He won't win. The stanley cup stars will so anyways Sorry that was a shot in the dark but whatever anyways let's get into this Next topic that we're going to get into the nhl executives. According to a report are worried about what is going to happen for season tickets for this upcoming season And there's a lot of debate behind this but the idea is that they think that the buildings will start full in october but as it goes on further and further throughout the season that there is going to be less and less and less people going to these games. And i mean there's a ton of you know intangibles in factors that go into this before i go into any of these details Original thoughts about why you think the execs would be worried about season tickets. Well i'm no economist. But i want to go to hockey games stills of that that's all i got to say i have no idea i don't know why why even that but i'm sure they got some fancy algorithms to tell them that that was disgusting. Never do that again. Oh part fingers anyways okay. So here's the deal with some of the some of these factors that go into why they think they're going to be all worried first off obviously the pandemic it. So that's an easy thing to talk about. The economy is not good anywhere right now and people just don't have the amount of money spent on entertainment like they did and if you're crunching a budget right now which a lot of people do better than frigging congress. Sorry another shot then. The first thing to go would be entertainment right. I mean you're not gonna cut you know. Basic necessities like food paying the bills car. Obviously stuff like that. But the first thing that's going to go is is entertainment and hockey falls into that That realm now for me. It doesn't. It's a necessity but for most people. It's a it's a it's a form of entertainment so that's number one. The second thing is is that when the nfl shut down for a period of time everything shut down right so there was no sports at all going anywhere when when those things happened people had a little bit more time to look back on their. Life's look back on their families and stuff like that and reflect a little bit in maybe maybe some of them are thinking you know maybe i should spend more time with my family or spend more time at work or be more productive with other things in my life rather than going to forty one games in a season i feel. That's more of a stretch. I don't think that out how people's mentalities change calculated into any kind of economic algorithm. What i i think. I don't think that's into an economic. You know whatever where you just said but it's it goes into the A smart person word. Yeah i'm i'm i'm done. I stupid kate but it still affects. What people you know how people feel how people think and how they're going to spend their money. I really believe that. I don't think that much i mean i'm i'm glad we're all thinking philosophically and everything but when it comes down to it. Everyone wants to watch hockey. Still talking agree with your watching hockey before. I don't think your roof your reflection time during the pedometer of think man. I don't like hockey anymore. No i'm not. I'm not saying that adult. It's just a fact of that people's priorities change. I truly believe that. I mean mine differently. Did over the they make. It allowed me to to look back and realize you know. Hey i'm not going to work in as much. I mean sitting in front of a computer doing google classroom stuff but it allowed me to look at the priorities in my life. You know You know my my my god. My family You know other things that i had. There's completely blinking right now. 'cause i'm in of a screen but it it changed my priorities so if it changed my priorities i don't even have season tickets. 'cause i live too far away anyways. Surely that there's a lot of people out there that probably the same thing that's just that's just my thinking. Am i crazy. Yeah little bit okay. Little bit go. What does go crazy than okay. I'm thinking it'll be fine. We'll get money. They make lots of money. Different ways does not going anywhere. Yeah in this. This last thing is is an. I don't know if this really connects. It probably doesn't but this is just me i've gotten a lot lazier over the paint over the pandemic. You know just with every thought. I was during the pandemic. Well i mean exactly. I mean like it during the pandemic. Nobody was going anywhere. i mean. excuse me there. You weren't going to any kind of entertainment. Things weren't going to the store if you're going to the store you were probably doing. Just pick up and driving straight back home. I mean things like that so it made me lazy in my in my job and you know every day activities that sort of thing and i've seen it with my kids who i teach as well so they've become a little bit lazier as well. They don't want the it seems like they don't wanna work as hard now. That's not true for everybody. But i have seen that more with the more average kid. So my my connection to this is this. If you're a season ticket holder. Eight annual season ticket holder. like most. And let's say that you went through the pandemic and everything i mean. Do you really want to go and spend so much time going to a hockey game. Forty forty one nights out of the year when you could you know rather spend time with family or do such and such thing or just flat out be lazy singer but on the couch and watch watch the stars from your couch. A is there any connection there is in correlation there again just insane if there is. I can sympathize with it. The first year that i have season tickets will be the happiest hockey year of my life. I'm not will happen. It will happen. I'm not discounting that at all. But the i believe that there are people out there that would look at that in you know maybe change it a different way again priorities. I mean priorities changed over the pandemic. And i think that's why the nhl executives are really worried about that and in the athletic article. That's one of the things they pointed out so The ancho will be fine. You know bottom line. Show be fine. They will eventually get back to that. Four point eight billion projection wanting to get but how quick they get back to that. I think is going to be affected by how people's priorities are. And i guess we'll see what happens over the course of the next couple years so anyways put a bow on that little topic Is there anything you wanted to say about that before we get into the next thing. You don't want your season tickets. I'll take him likewise so two people to people i'm we're looking for two groups of season tickets anyways. Okay so the next thing we want to talk about is stars. Line combos defensive pairings and goaltending is gonna look like for that what it could possibly look like for the twenty twenty one twenty twenty two season we very very briefly went over this in our free agent frenzy episode. But i wanted to go into a little bit more depth. And let's see if maybe yours changed or maybe somebody makes a lineup that you originally didn't have put so So what we'll do is we're going to go line by line. D pair by pair. And you just tell me. Tell me your thoughts on each one. All right why don't you go ahead and go first enlisted. Start with the first line. Who's the first line so my first line is going to be publicity hints in robertson worked all year last year. No need to change it. Hintsa's i guess this is kind of a hot take is going to be our highest score at the end of this year in my opinion. Oh that's that's another heartache. At all in my opinion based off of what we saw last season is still a great player. Which is why. I think it's hot. Take but i think cancer is going to be our highest next year. So i think that's definitely gonna be our first line. Hopefully belsky can play at least close to what he did last season and then that line would be amazing and i think it will help a little bit that he play. I assume i'm with you this. That's my first line combo to is that he plays on the wing so there's a little bit less responsibility and a little bit less coverage on the ice. The center does the most skating at of all three front forward. So i think that will help l. skin and maybe help us production. Wolsey just doesn't lose too much because he's he's gonna be worse than season. There's no doubt about that. He had probably the best season he's going to have in his Fourth quarter of his career will say but hopefully just doesn't lose too much. Well i mean fifteen goals twenty eight assists forty three points in forty one games. I mean it was. That's crazy his he in while he's injured while he's injured. So that just makes me think that that injury held him back. So you know i wouldn't. I think he can hit thirty goals this season. I really do. I really do if you double that. Forty forty one times two. That's eighty two games fifteen times to thirty goals right there and i think the projections are going to be even higher so i think he gets thirty goals this season. You can keep that up no way boy myself. 'cause he's he's so old. Last season was crazy he was talking about. We're talking about two totally different people right now. I was talking about hints. Sorry ski about now. Put hands yes you did. It's been a long dance. Yes he gets scored thirty goals. Yeah i'm with you i okay. I'll flip around and say i agree with you on pills. If he hits twenty goals that will be great. I that's okay. Well we can go back and listen to the episode and see who was wrong with me. I i've been working so much. I hate it. I'm tired all right. So i get line. Who you got Second line i've got. I've got tyler sagan. Alexandra love and i couldn't decide who i wanted on the left side. Either gary on off or keep your onto and i'm kind of leaning towards tv rhonda for one specific reason. And that's because. I think that gary off will play better with ben. Then he would play with tyler. Alexander reggie off. I'm putting brianna there but you can keep going next head you go ahead saying well. I'm putting out there. Because obviously russian line. That's freaking cool Also gavitt can just be the run and gun guy while sagan just dances around everybody in reggie watkins somehow find ways to score goals so in having the one timers on both sides of the both sides of the ice. That'd be nice to. But either way i think those three guys are are most consistent offensive. Guys nigerian wasn't really last season. He had a sophomore slump season. It was really rough. I expect him to bounce back. Pretty pretty dramatically this year. Twenty plus goals. I wouldn't say if he had twenty it'd be happy with twenty. Yeah i agree. That would be awesome if we could get some a little bit more production. Yeah so the the reason why. I don't put gary on off on that second line is i think is a better fit because he has a little bit of speed that dennis gary on the ground is so slow but it depends on the game it depends on the game because sometimes he can keep up sometimes he can keep up with events and other times it seems like he's the slowest player on the ice at that was a statement point. Third-line i'll say my third line third line and i don't understand this. The did you read that article the the season preview. Nhl dot com put up. I don't know i might have a bunch of trash. It was a bunch of trash completely and They said riley tufty was on the cusp of being on the nhl roster. And i'm like have you been watched it good. Even if he has a great camp he has nothing in his past back up why he should be allowed to be on the nhl roster in my opinion anyways. That's not what i'm getting into. My third line is jamie benn at senator. Because they've already said that he's gonna play center and they're they're gonna explore that and then i've got a gary off on one side and then i'm gonna go ahead and out there in say that riley damiani makes the camp and he's on the third line because i really want him to make it a guy that i have on. The third line was crazy but yours is really crazy. Well i think he's gonna be given every opportunity making an al rookie of the year. And that's a line. That kind of fits him he. He may have to play a little bit more of a pk role than he did when he was with the texas stars but again that third line completely is changed from last season. It's that that line is not a defensive line at all. That is a that is a third line scoring line in my opinion. And that's why. I love that line anyway. Who who did you did. You have the same. Two people will know you had key on third line. Go ahead say third one. That'd be crazy that'd be cool. I would love for that happened anyway. Mike they're lying. I put in key ron's on the third line. And i'm putting been there as well i think he's gonna stay at center and then i have to land area as making camp. That's not too far out there. I really was too far out there. But it was still out there. Mines mine's versus out. There bro. a great. But i think delay if delay andrea really work this off season which i really hope he did got bigger and stronger. Which was the big thing that we talked about with with. I tests was showing us is that he would run at people in. He would just hit the tall. So i if you've got if you've got bigger and stronger which. I have full faith that he did that. He's trying to push to make nhl roster and he's on the cusp. I i think he would be great right there. I think he'd play really willeke. Rhonda's will okay and the fourth. I'll go ahead and let you do your fourth line because i i'm still even at the last second i'm thinking about changing it but can you. Can you go ahead and line. Fourth line got come. Oh i have an glendening foxing. Glendenning can trade. Whoever's doing the center it doesn't matter They both take faceoffs. That's going to be an amazing. All three of those guys are amazing pill killers. That's gonna be awesome for our penalty killing. I think we're going to have. I think we should have the best penalty killing in the league this year. Just based off of our roster. I think we should have the best building killing with how good we are faceoffs. How good those guys are at penalty-killing we should be the best at that. So i'm really happy with that line as a line. And that can be a lockdown line to like if you're winning every face off the happens here defensive zone then the other teams i line. They can't get the puck like they can get the puck if we have it agreed. And i've got this fourth line. I do same line end for all the reasons you said. And we're both going against. Most people were saying that michael raffles out yet and my thing is is that you got to let some of these young kids start to take over. 'cause let's just assume that the stars don't make the bmi ame make the playoffs and they don't win the stanley cup. This is it. This is our chance if they don't make the stanley cup. You're going to need some of those younger guys to step up. Because i mean next year personnel skis gone. I don't see him being resigned. roger lav is gone. I don't see him being resigned and and we start going. I wouldn't say a rebuild full-on rebuild but definitely like retool if that kind of makes sense. I'm stealing the words from the hockey guy but we'll still be relevant but we will be a bubble playoff team for sir next year in my mind now. This year i'm way higher on the stars Most people are most people still see them as a bubble playoff team but Yeah yes i think the raffle signing was pretty useless. I don't think he should play. I have. I think we have enough depth. Guys were we. We didn't need to spend a million dollars to get raffle. I don't think it's important for us. I mean i mean look at the guys we have. We had to landry. we have garner. We have less bronx. You could say tufty definitely play. I know you kinda scoffed at that. But i think he's still has potential as a prospect even outta measuring. I mean you would give him a shot. I think instead of giving he went he to europe to play. He's no shoes. I got about that another one. We killed another one in the h. l. damiani out other. Give him a chance. Then let a thirty two year old right and and kmart or play play. Well here's the thing with the raffle signing with with that shows to me is that he wants a little bit more Veteran presence in line up which year right exactly right. So i mean i mean so when you go down the list of forwards in their ages Of who will be in my lineup. Here's their ages. Eight so thirty to twenty nine thirty five twenty two twenty four thirty seven thirty five twenty seven twenty four twenty five thirty two and was last one Twenty one so. I mean it's a good mix of both but it's almost like we have like all the guys in all the old guys. There's not many guys in between right. does that make sense. Yeah so i it's. It's it's almost like he's trying to take this scale. Which those of you. Who are on the podcast. I can't see 'em have one hand down one hand up and he's just trying to balance it out a little bit Is that the is that. The thought from jim nill. Well if that's the thought then. How does the raffle signing ballots anything the raffle signing balances. I don't think he makes. I think he's number thirteen number thirteen. That's i sure hope so. I don't think i don't think it though. and yes. We had a lot of guys who came up and played really well for the stars. This past season. Like i mean. Gardner gardner played fairly decent in the bottom six role and and same thing with With tanner kiro. He was probably the best one to fill in those bottom roles but he didn't like what we talked about. We talked about this a long time ago. Is that that fourth line. And sometimes even the third line had ahl level guys on it. It's almost like he hurt us and he went and said okay. I'm gonna go get all these guys and a lot of he did in he even did it in the defense as well so okay. Bow on forwards defencemen. This is real easy way less. I same with me going on okay. So this one i was. I was very tempted to bureau and hawkin paw. But i'm going to do miron sitter instead just because i i still do think so. There is solid defensive guy and will be the same. Kind of security blanket from your. He may not be as big. But whenever we need the big guy we'll put occupy their cetera. Okay and who's your third pairing can makes it sicker and aqaba secker hawkenport. Okay so i hope that Harley or or hanley either one harley were handed pushes occur out but i don't think so i honestly think that that What's his face. You said it hanley. I think hanley's number number seven. What about harley harley. Hate you always harley harley know harley does not make the stars this year. Because i think this is year that they tried to go for the cup and i don't think he's ready yet and and plus he he's. He destroyed the age. All this past season needed did great. And i really think that even further that he's not gonna make this roster just based off of Andreas bergmann and alex petrovac being signed by. Now those repeatedly death moves. Those guys are not gonna play much for the stars but they're going to be on the nhl roster So and i to make have the exact same defensive pairings although i think if souder struggles for a long period of time so let's just say i think he'll struggle right off the bat because he's in a different city for the first time in a long time i think if it's by late november maybe early december. If he's still struggling a lot. I think hawkin pot will be given that opportunity to play in the top four. So i i think that will happen. And then All right so then the big question. And everybody's talking about it and confused about it. Who's a net in a perfect world auditors in that and hopefully the backup and dhabi is not on the roster and has been traded but this world is not perfect is evil and it is mean it is full of stupid general managers who liked to have four. Nhl goaltenders exact same roster and pay all of them lots of money. It's so stupid we still have four. Nhl bish bishop may be out in duns. Oh right now. We have four. Nhl goal is on our roster that is idiotic it is so stupid and is what is going to make podcast over the hour mark once again. I'm to disagree with you at every turn of what you're going to say because it's stupid and it's dumb and we should not be putting on injured in h. l. in any circumstance and you're going to try and make an argument as to why you should be in the h. Elegant it'll be stupid in. i'll hate you for it. Okay gonna play in europe. I never said that auditors should be in the show. I don't want him to be in the age. Oh i don't think he deserves to be the age l. But look but i'm reading the cards of what jim nill did. What did he do. He went out and got with things. He thinks that you should berate him for no. I'm not going to berate him for it. Because he is a brilliant person. And i'm stupid so stupid so i'm just going to go. I'm gonna go with an trust in jim nill that he knows what he's doing Joe which i think is stupid as well. I don't agree with it but obviously maybe there's something asinine it's the most say. Arctic it's even idiotic thing ever underwood tariff the age of you played the same. But he's not going to because it's going to be so put out that he's not in the nhl he should be no matter. What would you just never more starter now. In giving the best chances it's stupid and we've already talked about this. I don't want him to carter. Heart it okay carter. Heart did fantastic. When he first came in and he was he was young and he was basically given the reins to the gold to the crease and he just like if philadelphia was like here. You go it's yours. And then he sucked it up this past season so i don't want that to happen to you. Don't have that. Because you have either auditor or be as the backup. Who are proven starters. And they could do it if they had to. They wouldn't they wouldn't be great but they would. It would be enough so that if our team was good enough we could still win games. So it's not the same though. It's not the same as carter. Heart because carter heart had nobody. It was him those it. Yes your safety net. It would be the perfect situation to do it and we're still not going to do it but in he a lot of people say he doesn't have a safety net. How dhabi did not want to steal the cut by himself. And i'm not talking about the stanley cup. I'm talking about last season. Got duo stanley cup. But he was still better than lots of other goals in the nhl. Yes i'm not disagreeing with you but but it wasn't good enough to make the playoffs and that is what gymnasts looking at. He's looking at the fact. Okay if under is the starter well none of these enough to make the playoffs. Hope he's enough to make the playoffs. Oh my gosh. I do go tell. That's vancouver fake okay. But they would also agree with me. Vancouver does not have a defense vancouver. Doesn't have a defense he will. You've already told me you will have already. Yes yes he will be better stats will be better and you've already told me that this team the are taught for an assuming it suitor. We'll just go tutor that they are the we have one of the best decoders in the nhl. I agree a hundred percent in behind. Goaltending is important but that defense that we have is going to stop a lot of the issues that hope we had last season. Hope he didn't have that security blanket of a great top four defenceman decor sorry. Not defend doesn't make sense but de corps. He will be better. He has the opportunity to take that net. I don't agree that he should okay but he is the extra security blanket because dhabi has shown that he can't that security blanket. Okay well then. Why is he on the roster. Then why is he on the roster. You're offering jurors already showed that he can be a backup. You did really well last season. So is don on the roster if you can't be a starter we don't eat them for backup and he's getting paid three million dollars we we. He was strictly for last season. In my opinion why he got paid. Because we knew that we're going to have to go without and jerry. No matter what ambition was hurt we knew they will then. Why hasn't he moved yet. i don't know he has he. And i've team no-trade list. There's lots of other place in. Here's here's the other thing about auditor as well. Jim gymnast has not come out and said that under will certainly age. Oh what has transpired. Is that hike. Came out today and said i. I need to go find that tweet. But and i'll find here while you're talking in a second. But he came out and said it's kind of expected that he was going to start in the ahl that does not mean that nil thinks that he's gonna be in the age he flat out came in the press conference zim press conference after the free agent period. He said come and get it coming. It does your net. If you prove to me that you can come and get it now. In my opinion. I think he already proved it. Okay and lots of other stars fans agreed with us. We talked to josh. Josh degrees hundred percent that auditor should be the starter. I mean listening to the hockey guy videos on his youtube channel. He's he thinks that he's proven that he's can be a starter for the stars this upcoming season but obviously last season and i guess. The bubble playoffs wasn't enough for jim nill. But he's leaving the door open for auditor to take that job. I really and i really think he will. He will so he let he left the door open and then he put another barricade in front by signing hopi ranger or khudobin. That'd be fine for him to say go get it and try and be trying be khudobin. That's fine but you're gonna already well. He's already done that. He's already beaten dhabi. Then why dhabi on the roster if he's already been dhabi sheikh on the roster because x. if audience if he feels that auditor is still not ready. If you can't you just said he who i. This is not me. This is me speaking. Jim nill k if he jim no looks at those three guys and he looks at camp and he says odder is not ready. Okay if we did not sign hobie who is our who our tandem khudobin in point now that would be. It would not be that bad. You wish he would not be so bad the as it gets into your again if he's not ready. I'm not on the whole season. I'm i'm. I'm talking jim nill. You're arguing jim. Nill right now not me. I agree with pid. He's stupid then no he's a whole season. He's not going to be bad enough to have to be put in the h. l. half the season he played half a season and the other half if not ready in his. W should not be on the roster if we're saying that he's better than khudobin agreed. I'm not disagreeing with you chris. Okay but we're both agreeing and you're talking about all these other people who agree with us stupid. He's dumb. that's the point. That's a decision to make. But you're going to talk about a guy who has who who helped build up the detroit red wings as a stanley cup contender. One several cups with the with the detroit red wings and you're gonna turn around and say that he's stupid and case marking handle as a key piece to make a cup contender and also trade for tyler sagan and completely no jerk off the boston bruins wrong word any but anyways in and also go insane. Joe pavel ski. Yes i he sucked but he was the reason why the stars went all the way to the stanley. Vinyl him indaba both okay. So i disagree with every decision. He's made i could point out a bad one so it's not like he's they're being millard. Good decisions than bad decisions and we are as people want to go through and criticize all the bad decisions like you phone. I like to look at the positives in wise chris. You're just you're all negative all time you're looking at the negatives so i'll finish out by saying is going to end up in the l. This year is going to be ridiculous. I'm gonna hate. It is going to be bad again. He's going to be better than laws but he's still going to be bad. Negative negative negative khudobin is going to be bad now. Now we're going to be just trying to overcome goalies. All year is going to be ridiculous. Disagree hundred percent. That's what's going to hold us back as goaltending this year. It happened for the day they've been bishop comes back and we're gonna be praying that he can actually play goals. He's i think he's done. I really think he's done. I don't see him coming back if the stars don't make the playoffs i agree with you. That's going to be the reason why pope doesn't show up dhabi doesn't rebound and on in a in the gaming world so if anybody knows about sports are win condition right now. Goaltending in by the goal is that it looks like that are going to be starting. I'm not happy with that win. Condition well i think i got injured does win the starting role i do and he will he will and if i'm wrong i will be very sad but i think he will and i think i think hope it comes in and he He outshines dhabi and remillard surge. Third string goalie just on our roster now if he gets put down no i think he can probably go to jail and no one's going to pick that up right okay. So if he goes down to the ahl what happens is that the stars save a million and a half on cap space. Joe he has to pass through waivers but he can't go to the ahl he can the same with hoping if it goes down to the ahl khudobin outplays hobie then that he's his campaign is two million dollars so then the stars can put most of that it in the in the ahl then it only five hundred thousand on the cap for the stars. So i i think i i. I really do think it's auditor will win it and then it'll be. That's that's who i think goes with the tandem so anyway we we were arguing with each other and i wasn't even And i was agreeing with you. I don't know how that happened but anyways okay so any last thoughts before we wrap that part up. i'm upset. you're upset just because i played devil's advocate. Sorry okay anyways we're getting to our who cares sigma for the evening and shout out to ellie for giving us the idea. Elliot's christians girlfriend so high l. e. Thank you for the idea christian. You wanna tell our audience the idea. We're doing top three favorite cereals. I'm still in a bad mood. I can't sell it to you. Serious good we like cereal ryan gophers sugary surgery staff k. All right number. Three cinnamon toast. Grinch is awesome cereal. I love it specific toast crunch and number three. Yeah oh my the. I think my my next to our well number two is a little bit basic but number one is my favorite. So keep at that at that rate number. Three is captain crunch peanut butter puffs their cabinet currents peanut butter. Yes really had them now. haven't Peanut butter the so. Think of reese's puffs and take out the chocolate. The captain crunch peanut butter puffs they're delicious. They're amazing you must. You must eat them with milk because they're very dry but they're delicious. Probably eat those by themselves to right and as a soccer whatever. No i really to drive twenty. You said reese's puffs because that's my number two and why never to is racist. Yeah okay so we finally agree on something and even though we agreeing on basically everything else. Candy in serial form and really peanut butter and chocolate is absolute best. So even the off brand reese's puffs that i've seen weirdo thinking multi meal. I mean if i had choice. Obviously i'm getting reece's bus but even the off brand ones. I wanna give my number one cause less exciting by number one cinnamon toast crunch. It is perfect. Cinnamon and sugar are a classic serial or flavor combination snickerdoodles amazing cookies.

Afraid out drag out and welcome to freak cout drag out. I'm never more. I Have Fester and we have absolutely zero. Zero plans about what the shows can out so buckle glove butter cups. We don't even know what we're doing. OINK has no how are Ya was the happened in hush hush been I mean I'm a love breath I know the feeling I guess that's that'd be good. We're at least six foot on the right side of the dirt. This time I mean yeah. We're not pushing up. Daisies Fester alive. Do Mel Everything's going did serve for can't complain I guess I complain Minnelli's heretolisten except for the dogs. Hey they'll show you some love trumps butter. Show them some love and end. It's already taken a turn for the worst record folks new record less than a minute in less than a minute in Oh my goodness so. It's actually been kind of a boring couple of Newsweek saw. I don't really have any great topics I mean. We did teach everybody. Hey how to peacefully protest. I mean that's something I hate it. That the best news article that could come out of Virginia was woman. Women arrested for refusing to remove the mask. Fucker was twenty three degrees. That's the best you got. You was released not even charged. Yeah Yeah then I seen some conspiracy. spiracy theories Her husband or something worked for that governor and everything else so even if it was true you know like you said it's fricking gold there so I don't see what the big deal was. I have tried Jim Nill Neuralgia. I'm forever in a mask outside because it's fucking cold and it hurts my fucking face but but no. That's the best news article you got your just because we didn't shoot him up. We didn't tear anything up and we cleaned up after ourselves. Kiss an amine. It's it will opposite of persons what you're saying. I mean they. They literally showed videos. And they compared the videos of Virginia to to some of the demonstrations like anti and there's handshaking and hugging and meeting and talking and then there's destruction violence in small talk cocktails being throw you know that kind of thing There was none of that. I mean they literally declared a state of emergency because number for. I say it's for two reasons. This is not any kind of facts because why in the fuck would we have facts on out drag out. But in my personal opinion. The governor declared a state of emergency for two reasons one. He wanted it so turn into something any hope that it would make all hill to back his. You know. Let's take everybody's everybody's gun rights and to like Pussy Not Factual based at all. I'm just curious what the ANTIFA headquarters like all right guys. Let's get together here. We're GONNA crash his party. Assert wait a second They all have guns on second. Thought we're going to skip this. Rally Okay people you tell me these things thirty years at a year and the Bass Okay Prom. I have my debts nuclear weapons the wrong pasta and we will read some down I mean literally everybody had guns and none of them went off on a firing tangent all on their own and nobody pulled any triggers so and it was mixed race gave everybody was there. Everybody was hugging and and there was no racism. There wasn't anything about race. There wasn't anything about age. There wasn't anything about gender. It was literally early. All walks of life from all over the country and the decline of the of a state of emergency. Just lets him. Deploy the guard. But there there were deputies. An actual entire police departments at this demonstration and they weren't there for security purposes. They were there protesting just saying but they have caused me a lot of headaches all of this Second Amendment Shit because I'm being invited to every single group in my Area because all of these cities and towns in North Carolina or making sanctuary cities which. I don't have a problem with but I mean it. I don't know I feel like that. They're trying to make the the laws trickle downward and all it's GonNa do is cause more problems more problems more problems I mean. I guess I should be happy. I'm in a sanctuary city where they're not gonNA take my pupils but whatever. I lost those in a tragic. Boating accident wasn't it also raises. Sheriff had a nice little comment there one of the public City gatherings or something to do Well there's been strenuous down. Her Nettle Huntersville had her share a spoke out. Well we they also had one in Hello Randolph. County and Davidson County and Rowing County. And they they've been speaking up a little bit of everywhere but to me. This is just getting boring because number one we know what red flag laws are going to do. It's basically going to turn into a turn me down for a second. I think I'll call in a red flag law and calls pandemonium odium chaos even though there's no truth to it whatsoever or they said something ugly to me on facebook if I'm a keyboard for your sunk in its earnings so we all know that the red the the red flag laws are nothing but a joke. But I've noticed that on all of these mass shootings where the person is fucking psycho. Nobody called and said. Hey there's this crazy guy that lives in my neighborhood that might be a serial killer. He's been acting on note the shit. Don't come out until after night. Well I always if you think he was weird boy tortured dogs and killing rabbits and skinny offer fund nine. You don't say nothing until after it's done God forbid it was on the other side man. y'All have turn to turn in a New York fucking second the way it goes. Democrats Democrats not all but most Democrats liberals reserve the right to be fucking crazy Roese. Blitz flipped around full. We all going to jail. That's just my two cents. I don't know it's fucking boring topic in anymore because it's just like we didn't do anything wrong. We didn't do anything bad we showed up. We shook hands. We had some fellowship. Ill I'm surprised that they weren't for again like Barbecue Barbecue. And in Shit on the streets and like beating everybody I mean it was just got all southern rally with out the hoods 'cause we don't like those kind of southern rallies alleys allow them to bring the grills close by they probably would have had you know a few barbecues going on like serious like unsurprised churches navy now. Oh Shit even though Virginia's right at the the line they're still the south. y'All I'm just kind of shocked that it went as quietly as it did not on our apart because I'm from Virginia. I'm not shocked on the residence or the people that came on shop that people weren't plans it to cause trouble. I'm really shocked that that didn't happen. probably because they'd be outgunned if you think it's like he said we're going to go to this one and you do know they're all alarmed alarmed out second safe out there. you go out on a major there but we'll just we're not gonna read had together this time. We're not going to get on buses. We'll just meet you there. Okay get their one. Anti per member looking around. Takes mass down and blends blends. Let's see stupid so I can't yell. I am beginning. Crushed it an absolutely no motivation district and cold weather. Snap that North Carolina's getting with the pressure. Change Sucks Ball anybody who suffer from chronic onic paint. which is all of us knows? That pressure plays a lot of a big part in pain and it sucks bad and like the bed in Iran and my magic juice and had ordered more and went two days without it was evil. Okay now cold spell. You're saying what twenty twenty one already. Cisco here's here's the thing any other time in January you worry you could be shut the hell up anytime any other time in January it will be cold. Is Ball's here right. So I got this brilliant idea I was I I was gonna say I was going to stock up. Fill the freezer up and we get out. You realize it's seventy two degrees so we can't fuck in enlight go anywhere else gotta come straight home. 'cause they're thinking Oh fuck him out any other time in January. Be So cold that you can't feel your face. One time I needed needs to be below freezing so that everything stays cold. It seventy two buck in degrees in January and now it's thirty degrees. Our bodies can't get you swan temperature and next week probably fucking snow well. We had thunder so within the old wives tale ten days after thunder supposed to have snow pissing pissing me off either. Be Warm or cold. I've had all four seasons in one week and which one should actually got co period state pretty much old We're still in the a single digits and stuff like that but we're not negative. That's later this week. Dropped back down to the negatives again but now that you said the magic word. It's stayed cold it stay gold. What exactly would be fine if I could get acclimated to one certain type of weather and get used to the heat? I can't get used to the cold because it's different every other. Tuck it out. I mean seriously I'll never and it's been a long time since it's been this Orman January but when we got out of the store in we have to go about about forty five minutes to go to Sam's Club and I'm like I don't think Brown enough coolers 'cause I brought one color you know I was like well. If we practical over with me we can just carry that straight radiant dump it in the freezer and then the box. You'll be okay. No no no no no no no no we get outside in like having to take my coat off and I'm like why is in. It's after dark so you'd think the temperature up the temperatures never dropped below seventy to come straight almost as like you know what screw you weather. Mother Nature's on crack. No no mother. Nature's going through menopause. Now Mother Nature has started doing all the methods running rampant around here. I don't know the white ship and soon be producing it for you. I guess too slow. I would love to see snow. Allah for just be one set ETA temperatures either be all seven east be authorities whichever but like like two days later and it was still a warm and you don't even get a gradual. Step down it. They went seventy twenty nine up go outside and Whoo Hoo you know that cold air that when you're not expecting new almost pace yourself literally walked outside and I was like all I could go back in and people for go anywhere. Oh God either not listened quite quite quickly up here and I've done that several times. You know it's been warm and the temperature drop and I'm at work now. Walk outside no coke. Because I've been in no coat all day and I'm like eight. The cold shock. I I don't hate cold weather. I mean it does. Hello my face but I don't hate it. Academics appropriately. But when when you start out in shorts and need pants but then you need shorts and the need pants and then you need seven coats. You don't know where you're going you just don't it. Just fuck you fuck. UNC See Weather Shit. Let me guess from you guys do if you ever You're you're you're gonNA people can't drive in it. Oh my God. When it's if flurries the world stops they they don't close like schools down here? They cities literally. It'll go across the screen. The city of Salisbury is closed. I'm like Damn. They closed the whole damn city and the shelves empty of bread and milk. They were three. OR WE'RE GONNA die which we never understood because our when you lose power you're gonNA make milk sandwiches. I mean and I and I like I said I get it for the bread because if it's that damn cold and you lose power you put cold cuts outside. You can put your milk outside. But I don't know what the fuck the eggs or for unless you have like some form of of alternate looking. That doesn't require electricity. What did you do? They may hey joe. DNC immediately runs out because somebody said the S. word. I want to know what the fuck you you need. Seven gallons of milk seven loves the bread and twelve dozen French toast. Because it's going to be seventy degrees in three days so it you're not going to be gone. It's not going to be like you snowed in for three months so I don't quite get it. It's funny though. They can so much say chance of and yeah. I know when I go to work that day. I'm going to have a miserable fucking day because store is going to be crowded and then I do my regular shopping anyway so so if I need something I'm like well I'm off tomorrow so I'm GonNa go ahead and shop now when I leave. Works ain't gotta go out tomorrow and they're like you stock enough snow and I'm like no I just like to fuck and eat. I'm not one of those. We try to be but until recently we didn't have the capacity to be you know we didn't have A freezer we have the little one on the fridge but I tried to get my grocery store three weeks because I hate grocery shopping right. Oh God who doesn't but it never fills something you forget something and it never fails that what he forgets when he goes. Shopping is always something on a snow day of where everybody shopping. I'm like you want me to go into that crowd that's on. I can avoid the crowd at work. I don't have to go the grocery store I invited. You want me go. Face that mob for Cana- chicken noodle soup are you fucking crazy now. I can't make the recipe cook. Something Else Bitch Shit. Don't worry it's not much better up here in Alaska stress me in the fruit snowfall yet. Twenty cars in the ditch. And you know there's only one road road pretty much the leach from where I live up here in Forty miles away north of Anchorage to Anchorage. So there's only one way I can get the work but never fails always. He's somebody that slides off in the ditch so working night shifts is actually a blessing. Because there's less traffic less. Eat less idiots out there on the road because even appear that yeah. People can't drive in. Yeah I mean I get that and I you know down here. I guess where I was raised in the mountains. We used to get a lot more snow so I was used to snow. Grandfather taught me how to drive in it. Because when you live now this about the sound redneck is chip shit but when you live a half mile of of any kind of our top road and then forty five minutes from any type of store other than a small little convenience store that the gallon of milk twenty seven dollars You have to be able to drive because nobody wants to go grocery shop and then cook groceries a half Mile Road road. And we've we've had to do it. It's been so bad that my grandfather has been in town style and he's you know and it's already snowed rapidly. Blizzard Blizzard like conditions. So he's picked up the groceries and now he can't get back up in the Holler so we're all down there. But it's not like we were stupid we'd be out there with like car hoods or whatever was flat that we would use for sledding. Yes I'm not redneck. Kyle the groceries on it and of course we were like twelve and thirteen so we were the meals so we pulled it back. He'll but I can remember times where the snow was so fucking deep that my grandfather. His slaying was teaching US responsibility. Something he's young installed know about these days but five. Am we had called buttons. 'cause we lived in we lived in the same Holler but is it went far far. But it wasn't like you could hollered wake me up or telephone because the phones are down so you know back when they had dolls loves motoring Otari Anyway so he hit the call button and wake me up and he'd be like it's time to go take care of cattle. He would tie a rope to me. Because I would fall into snowdrifts Oh drifts and the snow drifts were bigger than me so when a fall in couldn't get out so basically when I fell into a snow drift new just block back on my butt and he would dragged me up the hill walking. 'cause I was attached. I mean I've seen the snow's deep enough to where like we. We did the roles of Hay. And if you're quick on a heal them suckers day on and I was not paying attention one time and it came. Rolling at me in the snow was is deep enough that I just laid down in the snow and it rolled over top but I mean I can remember those days of hell of a lot of snow but down here. It's it's like the minute somebody gets on the road. It's all hell breaks loose and unlike an hour I'll be driving up the interstate and you'll see a cargo Zuma Bass Hawk in at you because you're taking your time you should take your. There's you don't need to fly. I don't care what anybody says it will drive. Does nothing when it's icy this yet. But in they'll be like all angry and road rage in and you get two miles up the road in their flipped over in the ditch. And you like get out. I'll go over and you're like hey hassled slowed down a little bit instead of honking at me. You wouldn't recognize demand anything you know that kind of deal but they do the rain too. That's getting say they're just as bad during the hurricane Last year year before last minute flooded so bad. These cars were going through these puddles installing out and call him puddles. Because I'm in a giant truck but I would get up to it and if I couldn't if you could see the lines in the road then I knew it wouldn't so deep that I couldn't cross through it but if you couldn't tell I would get out walk up to it and be like Might want to drive in the mud or a off road and go around this but I watched so many cars get stuck. It was hilarious. And I'm like Yo ain't never been before but at the same time I guess because that can drive with since it. It terrifies me to have to get out there. Because it never fails. I will be driving to and just dandy nothing dangerous and next ext thing you know here comes cletus in jacked up truck with absolutely no brains trucks clean which means they've never. They have no reason to have it. ACT UP IN. I'm sorry about your small penis anyway and they'll be the ones that caused the wreck back. Yes I yelled at every truck. I see that isn't covered in mud. That's jacked up for no apparent reason. You know no scratches clean as a whistle and I'm like and story about your small Pinas Genus. They're usually the NASTIEST. Get the sixty thousand dollars truck with the thirty thousand dollar rims in the you know. Twelve inch lip kit. It and you know going out there like you said Clean Isabelle. What the hell? Well a couple of weeks ago. Our security asked a big giant jacked up truck to move and he said I can't park in the parking spaces and I kept saying the waist Ause set up their Sydney Ordinance. The parking site space aren't slanted ended their short straight. So I always go to the top of the parking lot because my trump fits where there's no cars you know what I'm saying. It's easier when we ask him to move. Suddenly cleanest becomes a complete and total douchebag are security guards black so he starts dropping racial slurs. There's a walk up no matter. What the hell is your problem? And he's like I'm a sovereign citizen and I was like and that's got shit to do on private property. He's he's like an. I'm not parked and I was like you're not parked. He goes on stop. There's a difference and I was like really. What gear you in ears? Psa what's up piece where he goes park and I was like Berenberg Eh. Move fucking just and he just kept circling like scream at video and song probably Youtube famous right now because ice hi springs. I'm sorry about your small penis after about his six lap. You know. The entitled Douchebag agree of rednecks and then there's just straight up trailer trash and I just call people like got straight up trailer. Trash no offence if you live in a trailer there's a difference between living in a trailer and living in a trailer where you've got your fucking engine in the bathtub decrease in it just high class trailer trash in a double wide trailer before I moved in this house. But there's no reason you gotta go around like you ain't gotta look. Oh No trust me. Yeah we actually grew up in a trailer park so yeah I been there. Didn't I know what you mean. There are very nice trailer parks out there and then there's the mess parks WCHS. There's literally you know where they like. you can rent the trailer and the land for seventy five dollars and there's nobody police in it or anything. See if I had property were had a trailer park I would have. I would put security there. You know it would have a gate and I would have security security twenty four seven and there wouldn't be all of that mess because people deserve affordable housing without having to live scared to go outside with their kid. Yeah there's definitely neighborhoods where much here Banjo music than go walking through the park because he's pulling needles and shit a living in a trailer park and every Saturday night like clockwork. It was dinner and a show dinner and watching my neighbor tasers. Richard is Saturday night and like I said there's nothing wrong with it. I just think that these parks where the traffic doc is in and out in and out so you know that there's nothing good going on You hear small explosions which means bub. The street operating his meth lab. Again Your kids can't go outside because it's not safe due to the amount of animals running loose not being made to stay in yards needles everywhere and I just don't understand number one. How can the slum Lord that's running even allow the trailers to be rented out because half half of them don't have power and you see a lot of extension cords running and I'm like they're like but we're getting money and I'm like I would tear I would bulldozes entire land? Salt the fucking the earth. Because it's nasty probably bring in shit ton of dirt covered by all of this up and start Over with you know Nice trailers and make it affordable for like veteran's or elderly that everybody's talking about these Tiny house communities and saying that Britain. They think it's such an actually seniors argument recently. They said that they think that during these tiny houses veterans is a bad idea. Because they're just GONNA turn into you drug infested Sloan's like you know most trailer parks and stuff and I don't think that has to be true. I think that the people who are in charge of running these these homes for the homeless as long as they're providing other resources you know further addiction and so forth and so on and coming back a- and not letting these people just do what the fuck they want and helping them get on their feet to clear out a tiny home for the next one. I don't see anything wrong with it. It's all about the effort you put into it but everybody was commenting about how nick this time. Next year the tiny own park is going to be nothing but a mess park and I don't think it it has to be like that. I just think it takes. Whoever is doing it financing? Whatever I just think it takes time and effort? I'm not saying invade their privacy by inspecting every single day but you are dealing with people who are on the streets for whatever reason if you care I mean and the only way they're gonNA learn responsibility is if you you have if you go in and say okay now I will be by and obviously you don't need to tell when you're coming by have it only agreement that you're allowed to come by. I'm not not not saying every day six times a day. Whatever but you know once a week stop in and make sure? There's not needles piling up if you do see somebody instead of kicking them out. Say Hey let me take you to the. Va Let me get you into a Rehab facility somewhere Let's get this place cleaned up and I will leave it open for when you get out kind of like a halfway playhouse. I know you can't hold their hands. And they want to do it but I just don't think it's GonNa turn turn into the disaster that everybody's making it out to be like people are trying to stop support so that other tiny home villages don't open up across America because even though this one's nice and nothing's happened they're still showing the what I don't know how much time we have left about five minutes. Lincoln go ahead and let you do our Our sponsors also. Also you look up. The private group is. We haven't added that into your little repertoire okay so.

IBM flipflops just running outside to walk the dog real quick.

I'm just not much justin bieber their tolerate great all kinds of music except Mumble Rep. I can't even get past the first alert because I'm always always always when I think you're saying the same word word just different mumble. So I'm not really sure net next. I do enjoy watching. Snoop Dogg Review Mumble rappers. Though is like they tried to get me. Do that night. Going to be Judy. Judy you getting like okay. Snoop stop smoking so much before. Show Buddy I only have one only ever bought one rap actually eh cassette and gave away your age. Oh yeah good old sir. Mix A lot. Maybe not back back when that was the big thing to go by because that was one of the first ones that came out with the parental warning explicit lyrics sticker on it so every every teenager had to go buy it have it in their collection. Oh Yeah I remember those days a going to any store that sold CDs or cassette. And you would go and you'd pick it up if you didn't see that label. It means Shit. NAST laying had been edited on a hill. So I remember. My cousin bought a snoop dogg the GIN and juice album. I don't remember what's the name of it but I'm sure that Jj Charmian any minute. But so he got the accidentally bought the edited version. Well L. Ninety five percent of his words are cussing. You're literally listening so and you get like two or three words in and then something else and then you're like what where's where's the rest of the song. So we were. We were proud to buy the ones with explicit content. Only what's funny is back in the day. They didn't really audio you so at fifteen still still buying explicit content but I think you had to be eighteen. I don't fucking know and then one of those other stores before anybody realized that that's all they were selling edited ones. And do you go and you buy it expecting to get certain lyrics and What the heck is this? Yes the album. One was called doggy style but just remember him listening to it and a lot of gin and juice like back then. They wouldn't even now bitch on the radio and stuff but I listened satellite radio so that may be wrong for regular radio. I don't know but it would be like they would say Biz or like they wouldn't They couldn't say smokin Endo's will be smoking something and it just the lyrics were so weird and then when you hear the real song you completely you know look looked like a total douche bag because you didn't know any of the real words because you went and buy you a cussing seating by me. Those you know they they were going to pick up two live crew and Dray I wanna say is they WANNA be right. Ninety three or ninety four that I got my first Marilyn Manson album and I remember my mom saying she didn't care. Just don't play in front of my grandfather and I remember because in Virginia so far back in the boondocks that if there was a new hit I got it about eight months later like actually heard about it or you know. We didn't get our radio stations. Play this shit. It was a lot of country but it I remember going to DC to stay at my cousins and they were listening to snoop dog and I had never heard of Snoop Dogg and I don't like I said I don't remember what year it was but I remember buying that in DC and coming coming back home and my mom to this day bless her little heart. Still Love Snoop Dogg. She still loves the dog she she actually knows. She won't cuss cusp but she still knows those lyrics that's one of her good qualities one of two good qualities I guess but anyway that's freshly. What the hell have you been doing besides side getting plowed? Actually I kinda got. You could almost call us afraid out but probably not quite to that level but just kind of been getting my brain rain. Back in into focus. December's are always kind of my brain goes haywire on me in the way I deal with it is I shut down and all you fuckers. Wouldn't let me shut down offense Bro. Every December and January if not all of us most of us go Susan Shit. Did you know normally the way I deal with it as I say I can shut down for a couple of days and it's good but it's like you guys wouldn't let me go through that process. I mean even our to behind the scenes guys or even all the behind the scenes guys were all over me. It's like where are you at what's up. How you doing come on? Just give me a couple days to get my head in order actually had to shut everything down for like two weeks in order to get my head back in the right space and so much. We'll be back fulltime on this but of off try. Try to make it when I can. Well we know that and trust me I definitely get the go away for two weeks but people still go. Make sure you're okay because it's the one time time we don't check that that that brother sister does something dumb and you regret it the rest of your life not checking. So don't take it personal brother. Oh I know on that. I want to say that all even give out since we're recording this on the twenty second go check. Call One your brothers a couple days late when you're hearing this but give those brothers. You haven't talked Dr Sisters. You haven't talked to him while a call and see how they're doing. Do a buddy check since we're on that subject it's okay to shut down even to three weeks I like. I said I've done it myself. I've been like I'll answer real quick and I'm like I just don't WanNa talk to anybody but at a love. We always make sure that somewhere net. Shut down you know even if you don't answer that we're still thinking about you your third but this year. It hit hard for me January and I could not figure out what was going on that week actually ended up calling my work and saying I'm taking emergency leave. I'm at the point of. I don't know if it's break if you WANNA call it breaking point without satellite complete serial. Oh killer I was just at the point where the next person look fuck with me and I was going to exmouth shit so I called him and told him I needed a week offer. PTSD break and it wasn't until after Mr the date had passed I was like Oh my brain remembered. Even if the rest of me didn't remembered the anniversary date and So so I took a week off record that we didn't do anything. So after you brother. Trust me it's that time there's a lot of stuff that's in that time frame that's gone happened even going back twenty thirty years and it's during that time frame it's just you just shut down for a little bit and get away and it. That's just how how I process and and I really do appreciate you guys check in on me even though it did annoy the hell Outta me some days one of the great qualities of us. We annoy people know but after we make sure. You're okay or at least I did. I don't know about the rest so after make sure you're okay. I just was like an. We'll give him a couple of days in you still good man. Yep still and that's what we were just talking about You know finding somebody else to fill in. I don't care if we get up to ten host as long as it gives everybody the opportunity because whether you stay back full-time Because this can get to be a law ought especially if you already going through something and then you're committed other things that you don't necessarily have to go. Do you know you but but you committed to it and then it makes you feel bad and then you're like what am I gotTa go do it. And I'm at the point where I'm like. Look guys I just I just don't want to so I'm not going. Take all the other problem I was having is with our recording schedule. I was come getting home and grabbing a bite to eat sitting down to relax because I had about an hour to kill uh-huh and and it's like I was done well a couple of those times. That's what we figured because you had message in your and we're like where we go recording our get a thumbs up and then relate rusty rusty and we knew that I and I don't know how links not dog tired too but I knew your. We're getting dog tired because because it comes to a point where we were doing one show and you were sound asleep and halfway through. It was like like today talking gibberish. Yeah you missed his few before before the commercial break he literally couldn't get the he couldn't read suddenly inc lost the ability to read. So you can talk and there for a while. It felt like we were recording. Not just for Friday out drag out but it was like okay. I got to be there to stay alive show to help them. I am going to go help do is it and I was like I. Radio no more no more radio done. And that's why I said the message as I got back off for a while because it just it was I know they are going to be there and then I get home and I pass out or so. I was starting to feel bad saying yeah. I'll do it and disappearing. Nobody ever got upset. They just WanNa make sure you're all right if you're sleeping I mean what are we supposed to say. No frosty. Don't take care of your self. Do not don't do not promote self care. Okay what we say when we say how we say link Oh wake up for grab over Dude. I know you ain't had no sleep either by gets L. or yourself or at least fell asleep on air like some people I mean come on I have. But that's why I used the mute function when I'm not talking most the time. Yeah well I learned from a prior other people's mistakes Lee. Somebody did Shit Doc. There's nothing better than everybody pausing. What is that? I've come to realize it's winky snoring. Yeah good days the good old days function on my head as well so I I just use. It wasn't us a fresh I didn't get an answer. I see his little icon move and I'm like okay. He's alive. I had it hit me to the point where I had to shut just about everything off because it was door days messages. Were coming in so quick that my brain just didn't want to compute butte. I understand that I hate December's apparently I hate January. Twenty second because I can't read or do Shit on January Twenty Seven O. She's Fun Times is when he started talking. I was like let me. Just stop you there before you become a remix just ditch the bar grab a grenade. We're done we're entering the whole thing to a big long commercial. Now he just he I mean he literally started talking backwards pretty much much yeah. I don't even remember what I said because yeah we'll hear Friday. Hopefully we won't but I'm sure we will. He's not gonNA edit that 'cause it's hilarious and then when we go to take the frigging break you have to throw in a one liner and get me cracking up. So you know that staying in their boat inserting something and I'm like well you probably poem Ch. Oh this is what happens when you come to a show with zero planning because you just don't feel very good and before anybody goes while you shouldn't record. I enjoy recording. It's great therapy. It's just sometimes you just don't feel like fuck complaining. You spend on 'em besides where the title where we spent a week planning and then we get the day of the show and don't remember Shit even when we take notes or spit it out in like thirty seconds. That was supposed to take thirty minutes. Yeah we literally discuss this for forty five minutes online. And that's a thirty seconds and it's not nearest. I funny is when it's impromptu so I don't like I don't like Prima her shit unless it's like a commercial or something and then those after like forty seven times. 'cause I'm like only suddenly yeah can't read ahead. That issue is something to the all great and mighty bow had me record and it took me forever to finally get it one recording that you could actually understand. y'All yeah and mine was all the disclaimers because I you know certain things went before they air on the show. I want them to know that we a a are taking responsibility or be. It can cause them to fill a certain kind of way but to do that. You have to. You can't just wing it so it's usually a paragraph or something and I get halfway through and I'm like and inner and I'm like oh no I can't use that literally just sounded like I recommended. They do something bat. It nope that came out Know who the phrasing on it makes it really hard to to read And I don't read long paragraphs I'd do better stuff broken down into a few short sentences. So if boatswain's me a disclaimer to read and it's like fifteen sentences is by the middle of it. I'm like initially for radio. That's how I sound but it is. What it or? Just listen to me talk right before the break next. Next week we hit we do have a guest. Is it stinky guest it. It is a stinky as it's a barbecue place that doesn't mean it's stinky. But I see we keep bringing on guest yes that I can't relate to 'cause I don't eat barbecue wh-what I hate barbecue even barbecue pig. Oh I like roasted fried make Bacon dudes when I went. To Sam's I got two giant slabs of fucking bacon when I say slabs I don't mean like six pieces seven pieces in a pack Lake Powell labs three pounds per pack a for days. You brought home the Bacon. They try not to bring owing comb. His wife might get a little pissed off about that. No she probably could actually pay you. Take me away this here. He's yours get him out of your food. Everybody has commented about the life steady bears. I'm surprised you're not getting more messages about Orders now because we kinda just tell him to message you. I don't know what else to do. We we actually. Did we see one message in from lady that was a grandmother or not but A young young child actually witnessed her. Her father passed away right in front of him in a car accident. We're doing a special special edition. Teddy bear for that one opens Manger Wings On that bear for that that child so She's in the process of trying to get that made right now so get off. Hopefully soon I discovered build a bears cells air force uniforms marine in uniforms and firemen uniform. So I'm really really really contemplating having the wife making the cast of Frag out drag out in bear form with little. Uniforms could say to be killed. We have to and pig and a bird. I don't know if they have all that but we can put in bear form but the only thing is I did so I did tell that he was going to have to chop one of the legs off the air of the bear before he put him in the firemen suit because he can't have two legs. We got a one legged fireman. Well it's the here. For Christmas announcement wife is getting a little squeaky toys for the dogs and she brought home a pig snowman and something else didn't have any birds. Well that's close per se. There thought she said she's bringing a a fake leg or something. I don't don't give that to the dog. No but they did. Give the cast out drag outs of the dog chewed Don. I have them. Oh goodness yes. To wife does have have a raven. She does have different snowmen she does. Have you know the bears. Of course Anna pig. So yeah. There's there's options for people figure bigger close on a snowman. That was a tough word special. Make that bill pointy hat. That was gonna be the kicker like I say bill. The bear has the uniforms. I'm just trying to figure out you would put pants on a snowman. His ass frothy. It's not as easy as it looks. That's why most of his pictures. He's only got on the jacket get snowballs. Oh my God. Oh we miss his one liner about his frozen assets there I am. scrolling through news feeds everything trying to see if anything interesting has happened anywhere and guess let not a damn thing we already did the Second Amendment Shit.

2020 Stanley Cup Playoffs Game 5 Round 2 Avs/Stars

"And and off between welcome back to start castic remarks is Ryan and got Chris again here with us already. Always gotta see how D ROM. Legitly speak speechless, I don't know what to say. That was a weird. So I guess our compliments to bonus backfired on us begin. This is one of the dumbest coaching decisions. I've seen in a while the let's address the elephant in the room. What was bonus thinking? I guess you would thinking Bishop healthy, but nope. He wasn't and you could see it just by looking at him just just by watching him play watching Bishop play. He looks and continued to look nothing like the Ben Bishop that we know and the thing is that if you have a great goaltender who is playing really well. Yeah, he didn't play well and game for but why would you go back to somebody who in his last game? Yes, he won that game, but he won the game because our offense showed up. Why would you go back to him for this? Yeah. It doesn't make sense to me. We talked about this how even have been Bishop was ready would still play heard of in cuz we want to close out this series cuz the apps are such a threatening team. Like they have if a team is going to come back from a 3-1 deficit from all the all four series that are going on. Right. Now people would give the ABS as the best chance to do it for good reason to because they're probably the best team in the playoffs from overall during the season and stuff off. So, I think we obviously think that was a dumb decision. So I don't expect Bishop to be back in net for games 6, but we might be looking back at this game at the end of the series and thinking about the Lost opportunities here because After those first four goals, we win the games if you take away the four terrible goals. And while we were we were definitely playing terrible the first. Too so it's not pin this all on on Bishop. We looked awful. But at least I expected us to look way worse than the Avalanche in the first. Since they're on the brink of elimination, but there is not like that. Yeah, there's we look terrible on defense. There wasn't a good goal that they scored really they were all very savable and the last one was pretty atrocious so bad defense in Iraq. That wasn't healthy. That's just not good coaching coach didn't get them ready coach didn't put in a goalie. He was ready it that's awful. That's that's have been. That's the that's the coaching. We got a custom to during the regular season, unfortunately, and I hope I hope Jim Nill looks at a game like today and understands why bonus can't be our coach next season. I know a lot of people think that he's earned the right to be Be the coach during these playoffs, but we can't have a coach like bones in there. He he's too old school. He's not really he's not really ever makes the right decision. That was awful and maybe it's just down luckiness with him, but he really trusts his coaches and he really trusted players and sometimes just doesn't make the hard decision on Twitter. I was reading that the goaltender Jeffrey's was the one that told him that Bishop was good to go. But that that still doesn't make sense. There was there was some communication issue somewhere because even on Twitter like go ahead good. Yeah, the goaltender coach is going to tell the head coach to put in the starting goalie if he's healthy as as a goaltender as a somebody's looking on the outside. I would want my goaltending coach to tell me that right if we have the opportunity to put our young guy and we want to do it but bones has got realizing that situation. He hasn't played in forever. We can't throw them into the fire against the most potent offense in the league in an elimination game and elimination game and took him to do. Well it was it was a bad bad decision. My bones bones needed to stand up to his coat to the goaltending coach right there. And he we've seen he doesn't have the guts to do that. He doesn't It's obviously a bad coaching decision. So that's yeah, we can really say and you know now that I'm kind of looking at it. It's it making that decision would be really hard. Cuz a lot of people were saying that you know, it would have even been better in a 3-1 situation to let Jake ottinger go in and make his playoff debut. But again that the guy name is Young. He's hasn't played a regular-season game, which is way less pressure than a a playoff game in a elimination game, but And and then who'd open didn't play well last game and it's a it's a back-to-back-to-back. And then your goaltending coach is telling you that Bishop is healthy and good to go. But that still doesn't make sense to me cuz I looked on Twitter. It was like around 2 or 3:00 when bonus came out and said, all right with both Stephen Jones and Ben Bishop are still unfit to play and then we're all like, okay, so it's going to be who it's going to be who don't know big surprise. I think that was I think that was a bluff on back on. a bonus is part there during that press conference because if you go and look at some of the stuff you said specifically he talks about But here's also ask you the starting goalie was and he didn't say then and he said we have the information. We need to know who's the starting goalie going to be a super mysterious and weird. So if you read into it a little bit you could kind of tell Bishop was going to play. That's what I thought at least when I saw the press conference before the game. So but and you see why like you said it's hard to say no to that cuz first had open had his first not awesome game last game his friend Sub 900. It says back-to-back game food opens from playing a ton. And our backup goalie is somebody who we don't want to put in pretty much under any circumstances. And if in a Ben Bishop is good. It's a perfect time to let them play off because we're up 3 to 1. If we lose this game, we still have two more chances to close it out. So it there's obvious reasons to put in Bishop, but it's just I think especially as a fan page not good to see us giving hope to the Avalanche and it's scary to see well and you know before I even started this podcast I was thinking like this game fully rests on break his shoulders. But the more we're talking about it the more I'm starting to realize that you know, he probably made the right decision and he went with his gut. No, it's still not the right decision. He hears not healthy wage here. Well, here's the other thing. The other thing is that he might have had some Insider information that the third goaltender for the Colorado Avalanche was going to play tonight. So he thought that might be a log Never confidence-booster for Ben Bishop. If Ben is facing, you know, the third string goaltender Michael Hutchinson who played 11 regular-season games for the Toronto Maple Leafs this past year. I didn't get any single regular-season game with the Colorado Avalanche when he was traded and then you know, he just makes his start because Francisco is unfit to play it. Maybe that's another reason why and again I understood a bad choice because he's not healthy. You can't put a goalie Who's not a hundred percent into a playoff game and expect him to do. Well, it's not a good decision. I know the goaltending coach thought that he was healthy which obviously he screwed up to but It ultimately lies on head coach to make the final call and he should have seen during practice that he wasn't a hundred percent and he didn't see it so dead altimate lie. It's a bad decision because he's not healthy and the responsibility goes on phones. yeah, it's just really frustrating cuz that's a game. We should have one. We we should we really needed to close that out. And now I'm really scared about Wednesday then potentially Friday. That is completely opened the series up. I thought that this was a shouldn't shouldn't closed-door case series, even if we lose this next game, you know, we'll we'll still win game six, but after the decision that bonus made it just I still think we're going to win game six or seven. I don't think the stars go three straight games not playing good enough to beat the ads. I don't think the ABS go through Straight games playing great hockey. I think the stars are going to win this series and one of the two games they looked fine after the after the five goals. We look decent. Obviously the ads weren't playing full but it kind of looked like they still were they were still playing hard. They were still skating the pucks hard like the announcers at the end of the game. It's still a weirdly felt like a one-goal game throughout it felt like the stars could go off at any moment. Like we've seen him do in the in so many games so far in these playoffs and come back. So I think I think the Stars All are very well in control of this game. I think it was just it was just thrown away game by a really bad coaching decision is really what it comes down to in my opinion. All right, and then Thursday we're going to do something different. I'm going to pull in a quote from the post game conference, which we haven't really done but I think it's really important to you know, maybe a month is what he's thinking. So this is bonuses response to a question about putting Ben Bishop back in the game to rest Anton khudobin and you know after we've obviously looks like I'm going to come back and win the game and let Bishop get some game reps and and this is quote. This is what he said word for word. He said I did I did but you know what give Dobby credit threw him into a tough tough situation team wasn't playing. Well, we were getting bombarded and he battled so hard in the net it would have been tough to do that. Would we have like to give Bush a little bit more time? Yeah, but when Dobby goes in and he's battling like that, even though it was supposed to be a night off for him because he's played a lot of great hockey for us. We were trying to give him the night off. We tried to change things around Thursday. I thought of putting Bush back in absolutely, but when David is in there and he's about he's battle like that. It's probably supposed to be he's battling like that. Let him go home. So that just sounds super wishy-washy to me. Right. Well, what do you think? Yeah, he's kind of dodging the question like right right. Like it's honestly it's kind of a dumb question. Everyone knows what's going on. He thought fishing people's replacement. That's what it comes down to is just a mistake. So I don't know if there's much you can read into that. We've seen bones make some weird comments before so I think you took a bill as goaltender and not make it about how bad Bishop was Instead try and flip it into how good who'd opened was but it's not really a question that needed to be asked like most hockey questions if she knows what happened Bishop wasn't healthy the end bad decision and that the story of the game we wouldn't even have to watch the game to make that decision there. Well, I have a stat said no Power Play Goals by the Avalanche in this game. So we're looking on a bright side here the Stars took a trillion penalties because we were poed at the game, which understandable honestly for me. I'm not really home. Said about that but our penalty-kill played great tonight stopped him all stopped a long five-on-three that and it looked like as we're trying on all of them. They didn't look like they were just passing it around you'll get penalty Kill by the Stars. There's your bright side for the night and we were better in the faceoff Circle tonight. So that's a good thing too. And honestly the way I look at it, I think you're right. If we had started who'd open if we start your domain, it's obviously a close game. I think ABS at least take it to the two-goal lead in the first. Because of how poorly we were playing off, but who doesn't I'll be able to stop him and if you'd opens on that day, maybe he told him to one again, maybe yields and two zero somehow but Yeah, it's just frustrating shots on goal. 23 to 5 in the first. In favor of the Avalanche 15 to 11 in the second. In favor of the Avalanche 18 to 3 in favor of the Starship in the 3rd. They just stood back and just played a difference of game they need yeah, when you got a four-goal lead, it's not it's not even really it's not even really close. You can do whatever you want at that point. I did enjoy the stars at least showing some pride in their game at the end and I'm not allowing an empty-net goal and really trying to score some more. So that was at least nice to see two but overall. I think this game is kind of just lost by the coaching staff just terrible coaching decision. If you put em down for Road, you can't really expect much of am out of the rest of the game, but I think we're fine for the next two games. I think we're going to come back strong. I think we're going to put who'd open back in the net. We're not going to worry about trying to get a name. Get back in there again until we're sure he's healthy and he plays a bunch in practice and I I think Stars close out on Wednesday, honestly in my opinion, they've been flying well all series long. All I got to do is find it again off the ABS didn't even look spectacular this game. They really didn't McKinnon didn't look great. He had a he had a couple good passes. But again, he wasn't skating around his like he was in the first three games. So I think we're back on Thursday and we close this series out something that's frustrating to me is that we started to play better and we started to dig down into their 5 goal lead and then after I asked and and scored that goal in a second with 17 at 1731, you know, and then it was five too and I'm thinking okay three-goal lead. All right, what's that crazy as the series is has been down. There have been multiple times that a team has scored three goals in a row to tie the game because like okay we might have a shot at this even though like it just felt awkward the whole game felt awkward birth. But then 30 seconds later McKinnon does this thing and passes the puck burakovsky and he carries in the back of the Dust a bad play by Klinger. Honestly, it's still hard to get your mind back into a game when you're down by four and three goals since the very beginning so it like I don't know if we can read too much into really anything that happened with this game. It's just not good when a team plays badly and they have a hurt goalie in the net so So let me get your opinion on the game misconduct penalties one tip of all skiing want to come? Oh, do you think those were good penalties to take or do you think that those were bad penalties to take? Well, they weren't good pills to take but if it was a one or two bowl game, even at three gold game honestly The Refuge throat, or Podolski out during the game the outside a four-goal lead at that point during both of those games has gone ducks and they were just trying to settle the game down so that no one got hurt and that the game just ended so I understand why they do it obviously call more penalty's when it's a bla game. They want to keep things cleaner and knocking people injured so Obviously not a good penalty, but I think the refs are fine to call it that way. I was just a little frustrated with the amount of penalties. They were calling honestly at one point after they scored that sixth goal the Avalanche they they honestly just should have let the game go I understand what I'm doing in the second. Because yeah, the second. Was getting very chippy and it seems like every every whistle there was a little scrum in front of the net which to the Stars credit. That's what you need to do in order to push back when you have a really bad game like that. But I honestly think that the game misconduct penalties will be good for the stars in the long run. Those are two veteran players who are very nice big leaders in the storage locker room pavelski. Not only with his, you know, veteran leadership, but also the goals he's been scoring and then Como is not as outspoken as pavelski is if I'm understanding correctly from what I've read and all of that sort of stuff but he's still a leader in that dressing room enough to wear bonus gave him an a he's an assistant Captain. So what I'm hoping is that when you got two guys like that who are stepping up who are being vocal who are being passionate about a game where? You know, we just because of a poor coaching decision. We just went got behind early because of the coaching decision. I think it's a good thing and I think that will push and passion in the game six. Yeah, I think there's going to be no shortage of passion from the stars the game six, I think both teams are going to come out swinging. I think it's going to be the best game of the series and if they don't win game six, I don't see us winning game 7, I really don't and it's all going to come down because of that decision that goaltending decision and I really hope I hope I'm wrong, but I'm scared. We're going to lose the next two games lose game six lose game seven and then we're going to look back on this and say this was the turning point in the series. When was when bonus made that decision and you know for I put this on Twitter cuz I was I was talking to the Colorado a couple of Colorado Avalanche fan. Twitter and you know they were complaining about how their team was playing like, you know, the app is really haven't been playing that bad. It's just not consistent and I was like you guys have a lot of good players a lot of young players. So you're going to have a really good team for a very long time. You're going you're going to for the Stars. This is it I think this is it. It's either this year or next year and I think this is the climax and if we're going to win the cup, I think this is the year that we're going to do it. So we just with all of our aging players that we have and all the people we have on one page when your contracts and all that sort of stuff. I think this isn't so I guess we'll we'll find out and see so So what are they going to do in game six? Answer obviously. I think we're going out strong in the first. I think we're going to get on top of them and they're not going to be expecting it. So the ads got to find a way to to Thursday. We do what they did in the first period of this game and to apply pressure hard. I mean twenty three shots in the first. Is quite stained. Yeah, so they're going to be they gotta try and find a way to do the exact same thing again, which is it's pretty tough to find that energy again when you first get put on The Chopping Block, that's normally A team's best game in the series. So I I think it's going to be tough for them to match what they did today and I think the stars going to be embarrassed by this game and they're going to come out and try and I think they are going to close this game 6, that's what I all in and that is one thing I'm thinking about like, you know, if you've been to st. Louis Blues series I would be worried about I'd be a little bit more worried about it. I'm still worried about it. But you know this year has felt different it felt different it felt like he feels like home of the Blues now and we had the veteran team. So I'm hoping that we have some quick Amnesia and we forget real fast real real fast and this game I didn't even offer. It didn't feel like the ABS were playing so much better than the Stars really like we talked about earlier like throughout this series. There's not really a game with that that was just outplayed us to a point where we couldn't do anything else like they score on this 5 times because we have a hurt goalie and then they score on a first shot on the brand new goalie, so It's not like we're outmatched in any way in these games. We've played better than the ABS in almost every game of the series. So I don't think this is a time to worry. I think definitely we're going to look back on this if we lose this series and say that this was the turning point, but I don't think we're losing the series so not a big deal in my opinion. Well, I certainly hope you're right and all of our listeners. Sure. Hope you're right and all of us are chances really sure. Hope that you're right. All right guys, thank you for listening tonight. It's all we got for you tonight. This has been sarcastic remarks tonight tonight. I guess this morning is 1:00 in the morning. So, you know, but thank you all for listening and hopefully be able and you will enjoy this in the morning go follow us on Twitter at Stark Astic or you can also find us on Facebook at Stark a sticker marks and then you can also find us with whatever you get your podcast Stars lose a very awkward and strange and weird game 6 to 3, and they're just been a week.

Is Evening we've got a special. Guest for you, we have the Patriarch of the Chambers family we have David Chambers. Dad. Yet. and. What a better way to have a special guest on the podcast tonight. Oh, my goodness I say this a lot Chris and you make fun of me for saying it but. Tonight couldn't have gone any better. I mean that we the first and second period was not exactly. The way would that we wanted to start off but it seemed like at the end of that second period like that last minute it. Then there was another game that was just like this. that. At the end of the second period, they just decided to start playing again in the third period they dislike flip a switch and then like the last ten minutes after it was nothing but stars hockey after that. Pretty much the entire. The entire last three quarters of the third period with completely dominated by Dallas. It was really awesome to watch US play like if we were talking about what have player best hockey whole series that's where we did. We played our best hockey at the very end in an into overtime as well. It was it was awesome to watch. Crazy that they have the ability to take it up yet another level because if we flight sixty minutes of that kind of. WE SWEEP THE TAMPA IT would've low. Tampa Bay yet. Go Islanders. Yeah. Honestly I think I'm just reading for the islanders at this point so that the series last a little bit longer so that we can get a little bit more rest but you know honestly Amanda telling me about this for those you. That's my wife We were talking about it and it's like you know we haven't had a real break at all. And yet we we've done so well. So Rolling. Do we say you know what Tampa Bay let's go come on bring it on. Or say you wanted a little bit of a break think it matters Dallas has proven that this season it doesn't matter what happens. They're gonNA find a way to win hockey game. They're gonNA find a way to be one of the best teams in the League. The head coach randomly fired out of nowhere the most surprised news of the season that was not hockey related. They win a winner classic in the most extraordinary comeback fashion ever, and now they're winning the Cova Cup playoffs in the Western car. Over a cup. Cup It just shows the attrition of this team in how great they are at finding ways to win despite the circumstances. So I think it doesn't matter I hope that they take a little time 'cause I need to have time to breathe. No, let's keep it going man. Let's keep it going. Win. Keep it rolling. Let's go I. Want this done. Yup. got. You said basically no time off been none. There has been no time since the start of the first round to this point that there's been more than a day of stars. Except for the protest things one day in between each game. Yeah. Yeah. We've had we've had two day a two day break, which was a longest break. so that's kind of nuts to think about. This team started one, seven and one. Then, it went fourteen one in one. then. We fired our coach. Then we had the winter classic. And came back in spectacular fashion which all of us were asked by the way that was incredible. We go all the way through February in March. We lose six games in a row ski season the season stops because of covid. Glenn Our Stanley Cup final. We are now in the Stanley. Cup final. How Makes no sense. This makes absolutely no sense. We were just talking about this before we started recording my bracket is completely busted ain't no way I'm winning. Yeah and the star started this with the with the with a round robin stuff in looked. Terrible and now look like the Best Stars team, I've ever watched since I was able to actually know what was going on other than a goal was scored. You take a step back or you ridiculous take a step back in late last year though in the loss last year in the knowledge that they could have done it the could've taken that nextstep last year. I think they didn't mentally mentally they they grew and end the confidence level that they have. Built from that and they brought that into this place even with all of the craziness that's going on that confidence is never way we we could be down by three goals and we we'll just come back and win. That's all right. The stars talked about that before the season even started the they're looking back at that double overtime loss to the Blues in game seven and go on to win the Stanley Cup and think what could have been if they had just beaten them. We'll just that's what on by the whole time and I think that's what's on their mind every time they come back in a game, the team that comes back the most in the NHL every time down by. Three goals in the first period of game six like just they can look back at that experience just like you're saying. They know exactly what to do in that it's worth it to do it or just pull out our secret weapon rookie. Yeah, that's definitely definitely Dell stars skill. They're great junk Jim. I like where we're at. His I. Mean we all knew that he was going to. You know you know scored three goals in game seven in the Second Round To score the game tying goal in five in the third round. So I'm making a strong prediction here. No matter how this series ends if it wins if it ends in Stars Win Yeovil Caveat Ranta either scored the game tying goal or the game clint or the series clinching goal to win the cup. Is I. Don't think that's too far out at this point. What else? That's not even hot take. It really isn't. It's not why not? Why not. Make sure you know maybe maybe Robertson comes into the game and like wins it game seven triple overtime everyone says he had its footing the crease or something. I. Don't know might as well happened they changed the rule. Now, how does that sound? So familiar Sounds. So familiar I put my finger on it. But the Buffalo Sabres. Talk Let's talk about the the two goals that were the biggest. Give you rot game-tying in girl Janowski game winning in. That's yeah. That's what I'm saying that's the future. That's Giuliana. Rhonda. And then after Gary, on of scores I've saw this picture all over social media it's jury off enhances jumping into each other's arms and like that's GonNa. Be The picture that we're going to look at when they're the core of the team that this is all built around later. Younger still awesome youngsters can glory in the youngsters, but I'm GONNA go back to been skull because he bounced to him and that's a that's a goal scorers bounced bounced right to but it was behind him either lean back and lifted it in the top of the net. Beautiful. Beautiful that's where Jamie been lives. He's a goal. Gremlin? He stops up all of the gravy. And that was the start of the comeback. I truly believe that that is the reason why we're sitting here right now talking about a series win is because Jamie been. Game. The whole. Yeah. That's the last two games civically. Right after you call on him to step up and make the big plays, right so I'm sure Jamie been listened to it. He's been wanting all the whole time guys I mean y'all said beatdown McKinnon right take him out league isn't just does it so keep it keep it going. I like data appreciating are perfect predictions. have him on more often. Yeah, seriously. Well. But you know as much as we talk about. How bannon stepped up How Dennis Gary on his doing what he's supposed to be doing as one of our big snipers, which he has exploded this year as one of our big forwards and I'm so happy that. You. Know. There's a Lotta people nowadays especially with the first round pick like Dennis Gary on off that if he doesn't come out in the. League very early on. And start scoring goals. You know like an Austin Matthews where he scored four goals in his first game or something like that that by the time they're twenty two and they got drafted when they're eighteen people are like kind of shoving them off like, Oh, well, he was a bust. I am I gotTA give credit to Jim Nill I have to give credit to Jim Nill in the fact that he kept with his plan, he felt like he knew what he was doing and he stuck to that announed in the finals. In do this. This year with sit down to the AHL because he was not playing good enough. That sounds like a joke now but it happened. Of this year and in like it would've it shows exactly what the stars team is that exact moment 'cause he gets sent down and he could so easily feel bad for himself in say that he should be playing in the NHL which you really should have. He didn't. He didn't play that bad. He's to be sent down but they obviously said he needed more skating time. So it gets sent down his first game he scores a hat trick. That shows the resilience of the whole team in that like one moment just throughout this season, there's resilience at every turn. Everything has been thrown at the stars. No one has believed in them like every NHL staff writer has counted them out in every single series. There's. Three writers alley off that have counted them to win the series. There was zero against Calgary one against Colorado in two against. Vegas. And we prove August trend, we prove Vegas Vegas. Biggest is odds wrong or make a bunch of people lose money hopefully. So. Stars are just bounce back guys in they know how to win now that's what this whole season has been has been there long. Path slamming into the blues every year and getting knocked out of the playoffs and they finally figured out how to win hockey game with just them enter rely on nobody else I want to throw the crazy Russian into the psychotic Russian or whatever that question was. Not Presser the other it was pretty hilarious. Radulovich has absolutely stepped up. it's it's been fun to watch him again. I think they've lost a little bit of speed but but with them together and pushing it spins been great to watch watch them Gel and gives the team the momentum they need whether whether or not they're scoring with rats he was scoring team. So didn't show up as much. This game relief by saw some getting out there and hustle and same with the Sagan. If throughout the series that he's been playing great and that whole top line was just so good especially towards the end of the game. You. Know. We did all of this like all of this without Tyler Sagan being one hundred percent. Who would have thought that? You know a month ago month and a half ago and we're sitting in you know we do a podcast in say oh well, we're going to ride our backup goalie There's going to be this random rookie that comes in and scores three goals in game seven of the second round, and we're going to do all of this and get to the Stanley Cup final without relying heavily on a fully healthy Tyler Sagan. Who the? Nobody in their right mind would have even like giving you a second thought. They would have laughed in your face and now that's exactly what happens. Yeah it's nuts. Through. In you know we're talking about all of these players that have stepped up but. Here's M-? Here's my two biggest players. One of them is really obvious and the other one is kind of obvious. I'll say the the less obvious one I Jamie Alexi AC. He. He. He has filled a top four role that we've been missing for the last couple of years. In the way he has played an I, give full credit to mirror. Hey, skin and here. I, think he's seen what mirror hey skin and can do and he's like you know what I can do that too. And because of that, and he's he also is so sound defensively, he played on a Stanley Cup winning team with Pittsburgh, I, mean, he didn't win the Cup while he was with them but his all players like Chris Tang and Marc Andre Fleury and you know said the kid, Phil Kessel all these guys who had won a cut before he took that experience brought it back to Dallas, and now we're reaping the benefits of what happened. In he has I, I mean, I'm raving about this guy he's not even a kid anymore you call him a kid I. Think he's like twenty, four, twenty, five, I mean he all these players are stepping up at the exact right time. and. Then the other one I got to mention. That's obviously. Crazy obvious without Anton. Khudobin. Absolutely none of this is possible. Got? Hot Goalie in the playoffs fan got to have a hot goalie when he is on fire. In. The he doesn't get enough credit he in. You know I I love mirror. Hey Skin and what he's done to these play offs in and he deserves just as much credit as you'd open does. But if if we win the Stanley Cup final if we win the Stanley Cup. I feel like there's no there's no choice that you give the Conn Smyth to Anton Khudobin. Right now, there's no question in my mind either he's definitely stepped up taking the last last two series and this one needless stood on his head. Well, in that see, that's the thing is that there have been times that. There have been a lot of times in the past couple of series. Where at long periods of times when the stars haven't scorer scored has shot a bunch shots. That he sat there in stood on his head. And the lucky. The lucky thing for him. Is that the stars have been extremely opportunistic in this playoffs. I know that we're not getting all power plays were not getting. You know all the flashy our. Man No rough love. I know but. I I I can't rave again the he deserves a concert. And I really really really would hate to see him leave after he wins the Stanley Cup. Honestly. At this point I just don't. I don't see how we can afford him. He's taken us to the Stanley Cup final he's he's going to get four million. He's at two and a half million dollars two and a half million dollars. That's A. Stuff is podcast. The Dallas Stars going breaking Stanley Cup finals. We'll talk about Dobie leaving we all know. Be Happy. Yep I'M GONNA mention it again it's. It's Kinda like watching like your kid leave for college or something like that. You know he's doing so well and he's doing really good and you know he's GonNa do great things in the future but. It's really sad to see him go. But you know for now we're going to sit here. And we're going to enjoy. This last series in you know what? This is it? Like you know there's no like, oh, well, we go home after this series. Or. We can keep going like this. Is it you go home either way either. Way exactly and we have absolutely nothing to lose no matter who we play. In the finals yet. We have no. Pressure on. US. Pressure think's GonNa win either. So where's this will be played? Are they picking assume they're picking one of the bubbles but they? Edmonton so it's happening in Edmonton off the Eastern Conference Games have been in Edmonton. As of the conference finals as well. I didn't even know that. Thank you. Big homer on. Okay. We we we've kind of ranted about all the players and how we're so happy about all the stuff. But how do we win this game? If there's one thing that you had to look at it and say specifically about this game because this is about game five, this podcast is supposed to be but you know we've kinda gushed about all the players. What's the one thing that stands out to you more than anything in this game Dad why don't you go first? Curse wants to know. In this game. We came out and played solid defense. We knew they were going to come out strong. They did we played solid defense we didn't In previous games, we lacked the intensity to truly whether it and stuck in it. In this one we came out, we played solid defense dot W. Celtics in it for a period of time we grew off of that and then and then pushed it forward and just slowly grew and overwhelmed. Chris you can talk now it's Ok okay. I think it's my turn again. Let's say Okay so first of all. Dow's pray played pretty decent in the first read, right. So if anyone watched that for most of the period, I would say that it was pretty evenly matched right except towards the very tail end of it were Vegas started taking over. It was pretty well played by both teams. But. The second period was terrible for the stars it was so bad. There is not a good part of it. W saved their lives and vegas inability to score goals, saved our lives and I think those two things are really what this whole series boils down to. Biggest is top guys can't score goals. They don't have the depth players to score goals for them so. Dabo saves all the slightly difficult ones and they can't make any kind of big plays like the stars can and they don't score enough goals to win. Frighteningly. That's what we've. That's what we saw from our team when we were in our losing streak coming into the end of the season, right? That's exactly what was happening. Everyone was dry everyone was snake bitten. But. We, we're finding ways to to win hockey games now. So I saw the stat earlier. Before this game that Vegas only at six goals that's in the series. That's why they're not waking. They can't score goals. Well, guess what? Dallas had six goals. Alice. Series. With only one more goal than Vegas. So. It's not just that. Vegas. Wasn't scoring goals because Dallas wasn't really scoring goals either as a low scoring series, but Dallas knows how to win a hockey game are only better than your goalie. Bill. So we'll say that, but like litter put made so many bigger. It was awesome I. Know it sounds terrible to say that with Dhabi played. So amazing. Her. Litter had so many outstanding remarkable larceny. Saves. In it didn't matter the story great order. Yeah. It was. It was crazy by both goaltenders, but the stars find goals when it matters and that's really what it comes down to you in the stars are finding ways to win an offensive battles. They found a way to win in defensive battles in now we'll see how were you have to win the Stanley Cup final. But either way I'm certain that we'll find ways to win the game. So I went after a couple stats show. In. One Goal Games, the stars are ten and one. In, the playoffs in overtime, the stars are four and. This leads to one of my points why this game was so important we're so click. The are big players. Stepped up when they were needed to. and. Then a little bit of a little bit of sprinkles from Ronson there and pavilion in the in the flame series right so right exactly and and everybody is on twitter I'm looking at it. Now everybody is talking about that huge. Go. Almost you keep telling me I'M GONNA say it wrong and I still say it wrong Polski now Adele Ski. And We could have been down three one in that series and who knows what would have happened And then the last thing I'm going to mention that I think was the difference in this game was power play in our in our special teams. So. Win. We got the opportunity when we started playing better in the second half of the third period especially. We have several power plants. In the second, there was one power play that t. v. especially towards the beginning I forgot who was the penalty but the they just could not get into the zone they couldn't set up they weren't doing really well. And then Ben again back to the clutch nece scores the goal, and then we realize. Hey. We could actually in the series tonight. In not have to go through another game seven. Craziness against the Colorado Avalanche. Once they smell that. It was over, they smell blood in the water, swim up to it and bit the credit of it and that I think is one of the biggest things about this series. It's something different about this stars team compared to last year and you know everybody talks about. You know when you have a young up and coming team like for for example, we saw in the playoffs Vancouver. They've got an extremely good team. But they're young. In. They don't really have any experience in the playoffs. But they just got to play. In beat the F-, The Stanley Cup finalists, or Stanley Cup finals winners from last year. And then they played against the Stanley Cup favorites in the Vegas Golden Knights in. If you're vague if you're Vancouver, you can't ask for anything better than that for future prospects of this. Now, let's take this back to the stars. The stars. They had the same issue. that. Had this playoffs last playoffs against St? Louis. And again you'll y'all. We're both talking about it in going back to game seven double-overtime Jamie Bain was probably like probably like two centimetres away from scoring that goal, and then we all asked what if What if this is it? And we're never going to be able to get back in into this. The stars learned from that series. And you could see it. You could see it in game seven against Colorado. You could see the way that they were acting. They were way more relaxed. They were way more fresh they. They weren't gripping their sticks a little bit too tight. End You know what I felt that in game five. After kier onto scored that goal I was. I was like we're GONNA win the game. I just knew. And Then, we put pressure on them at the beginning of the OT and then. Gary on puts it away. I mean, you can't ask for anything better. than. This I mean this is. This is the climax of this stars era team. Jamie, Ben, this is it. This is your chance to show yourself how you could memorialize yourself in Dallas Stars Legend for the rest of this team's existence. This is it. He deserves. It needs to go take it now. Just go do it. Beast. Mode Times three. Beast mode in every single game. From now until. We had till the end of the next series I mean there if this doesn't motivate you nothing will here does he have to go kill in the in the in the next series whether it's Tampa or islanders who does he have to go kill this time? So if I was talking with someone about this actually so so far it looks like it's going to be the lightning. They've kind of dominated every game even when they lost. So let's say it's the lightning. The stars are the best built team to stop Kucherov in the current state he's in right now. He is he looks unstoppable but if there's any team that could do it I think it's the stars so. My my heart's way to in it at this point for me to think logically. But. But I think that gives us a great advantage if it really does happen to be the lightning which from watching all the Games, it very much looks like it's going to be. What if it's the islanders then get someone who's got a shutdown. Now now. To go after Barzel kind of, but the islanders are just such a better. Well, rounded team is actually. So there it would be I know this one, but I think there's going to be more scoring that happens. And I think the collects clocks toll and on Cinderella there for the islanders unfortunately. Yeah. I out here the bills ring as well. It's unfortunate. They're kinda getting outplayed. imagine if buried trots had a Tampa Bay lightning team. Are I don't even want to think about that that I guess he did with. Washington. And then Washington was like an it was the players that got us to the final. And now. Look at what's happening So I still think that I agree with you Chris. You gotta go after. Kucherov if. The lightning ended up winning. And if it's if it's New York islanders you gotta go after. Matthew Barzel. Maybe, even Josh Nelson or Josh Bailey because both of them have been. Absolutely fantastic in that series actually watch the full game last night, which was a little surprised because it was so tired but. I stood up for the whole thing so. Hurry. Jomon y'all got anything else to say. WE'RE GETTING UP TO THIRTY MINUTES SO. I'm still in denial. I. If he scores, we're GONNA win the series. So if he if we if we're up in the series and Game Five, we're up three to one and he scores. We're GONNA WIN WE'RE GONNA win the Stanley Cup. Closing my closing remarks are just comparing back to the old days because in in. In Ninety nine we we knew we were going to win we win the presidents trophy. There is no doubt from the very beginning we were winning and that was just it. It was just Done that's the way it was. I had no faith at the beginning of this one with how he played at the end of the end of the regular season and even the even the the round. Robin. On. No faith at all. And they're the moment I believed. was. was fidelity's last-second goal. I don't remember which game that was game three. Inflames for, and. All of a sudden I was like okay. I can see it. They're not going to go away and that determination is there and so. We we've got the best chances that we've had in in twenty years. So let's go get another one. Heck yes. Me and let's go. All right. Thank you again for listening. It's been star cast their remarks.

Starcastic Remarks-The Only Dallas Stars Fan-Led Podcast

PGR: Carolina vs. Dallas February 11th, 2021

"Hey guys this is mike madonna. And you're listening to start. Casper marts on free sixty. Five sports radio network star cast parts. I freaking hate. You said i'm took off. I i went from like pissed off. Peter to negative nancy to level headed larry. So good thing. We're recording this later because otherwise it'd be a lot more pissed off. We got a lot of people in this room. That i guess Yeah there's five of us right now and right now Larry is when it's controlling me so we're all good right now. Stars lose four to three and another game that i felt like we should have one. What about you chris. Yeah so. I don't even know. I don't know i don't even know what to talk about now because this is so everything just pisses me off right. That's the weird thing does. It seemed like so the majority of his game. It felt like we were in control right but whenever they scored their goals it was from like a severe blow out from the stars. Doing something terribly wrong. So i don't and the third period was very annoying so like the whole beginning of the third period we liked the best we had all game and now and then right one stupid mistake one. What's been and goes down a little too early. And then a perfect pass tape to tape to the exact wrong guy. They add this. The other star killer isn't that is not named patrick lenny. What it is about neto He loves playing against the stars whether he plays for minnesota or really he plays for frigging carolina. Yeah it feels like it's two games in a row now that it feels like we're getting bad balances and stuff but at some point you. You have to be good team to win. The hockey game right and carolina proved that tonight they got the. I think there are two things kind of are the biggest takeaways from this game so again. It's not even really stupid penalties. Because they i mean you're gonna take penalties. I mean there's never going to be a game where you don't take a penalty unless you're just that perfect which will the team is but that's a whole nother story line of this game. Though the first period all those penalties and then someone told the rest to chill out and then the game actually got good at that point. 'cause the first period was so slow. I mean the. I think even raise your point. Twenty face offs in the first period. It was like draft and speaking of rest can kin the registers dropped the puck. What is it about this year. In the just not dropping the frequently it really feels like they're inserting themselves a lot. Maybe honestly there's just popped into my head but maybe they don't feel accountable to the crowd anymore so like they're taking liberties every time you you hold onto the puck too long. The crowd's going to do at you but like maybe. If that's the bag your might anymore you'd hold onto longer or no probably not but whatever something to think about a in okay so let's comes down to two things in my head in and maybe three i'll stick with three okay. There's a little bunch more but there's three big ones okay. One of them is. We need to start using our speed more and not drug kind of speed. We need to start using geary and our hints speed and roberson getting up there too and that line looked excellent. Tonight we need to use more of that and especially when we're playing carolina because carolina has too much skill for us to be dumping and chasing the puck and their defense is fantastic just like ours. So they're not going to succumb to that style game in my opinion and we play that way in the second period. And that's what got us all the chances and that's what got us three goals to get to get ahead and so that was the first thing the second thing is. We really got to execute on our on our scoring chances. I mean there's nothing else we can do. We did everything right in period and when we were up three to two if you include the dickinson chance which probably should have gone in the back of the net and then the chance that It was a two on one. Odd man rush With a key in ben which they looked good to again. Take the shot. Take the shot jamie. Yea take a shot. He feels in the back of the net. That feels like a huge problem to me right now. Like all of our big guys. They're passing too much like heiskanen he doesn't have. He has a lot of assists like he's been great raise but he needs to score the goals like that's what he's paid for. That's what he's gonna he's gonna get paid for. He's not really in his contract then needs to shoot. That puck give you. Rhonda's not the guy to score the goal there. Jamie benn is score that goal. That's why he's paid his giant massive salary so yeah very frustrating. Go ahead with your points. Before i go into other stuff. Okay and my last. My last biggest thing is it. We got out goal tended tonight which is weird we normally don't get out goal tended and for some reason i never thought of as a fantastic goaltender but he has looked really good against the stars in the three games against us this season and tonight. That's honestly that's the. That's the huge biggest difference maker is the stars. Didn't start had chances. We didn't take advantage of them. And then he made especially in the second period. Some gigantic gargantuan saves kept his team in it and just allowed team to kind of chill out. And kinda hang around until you know. The stars ran out of gas. I guess i agree with you in the in the the fact that w was great. But i'll give you a counter argument to rymere's good. Maybe the stars just make rhymer look good like we played sue the other night on. No no no no but we played sue bantu backup got to backup goaltenders. Okay but certainly not that good. No you're just making them look good. No i disagree because 'cause we do in a row it happens like i'm hearing this argument like a lot on twitter actually really. Yeah a lotta people are being like again. Stars make another backup goalie. Look like a contender is like okay. I have stars are doing. Yeah is that something the stars are doing. Are we not good at shooting. The puck no seems like it. You know if you had asked me right after the game we recorded this podcast like right after the game i probably would have said yes but at this point and i'm going to go back in again level leery now so i've kind of come down and it kinda helps listening to a bonus honestly because i listened to the post game conference and he. He said a lot of the right things and a lot of stuff that i agree with. I wish we would. You know do better on our chances. But his biggest thing that he said is if we continue to play like this. Then we're going to win more games than we lose and it just so happens that now we're just losing these games based off of especially the first two carolina goals that was just off a broken plays and it just happened to go to the right person at the wrong time for us so i agree with that. But if you're a cup contender if you wanna stanley cup you find a way to win the game anyway right so you play the right way you get screwed over by puck bounces stupid broken up. Plays bad goals. Your goal is not on and you still find a way to win the game. That's what drinks to win the stanley cup. Do and that's really the season. But you were just in the stanley cup. Final like these guys know how to win hockey game. You've seen them figure out how to win on game game seven against colorado. No chance we win that game. We don't deserve to win that game and we find a way to do it. Because we're a good hockey team game. Six win this game. was it a game. Four against calgary when we should have gone down three games to one and somehow belsky gets the goal allow with seconds left and we ended up winning including game. Six against calgary in the bubble playoffs like that should have been should not have been a game that we won and yet we slaughtered them and figured out a way to to win. You're right and it's because i think the big thing is had the i mean the hockey gods are i mean. We've made them out somehow right now and i think that's the biggest point of this is again. There's there's a little bit of puck luck here but you're absolutely right that if we're a cup contending team which obviously right now. We don't look like it we're gone. We've won one game in the past seven and those teams find a way to win regardless of what happens four game losing streak right. Three of those are one goal range. This one's not two of them since this one is taking nearly empty netter. I like this as i count this as. That's what i was saying but like last year. We won this game. Lucky we want the past three games probably like we were the best one goal team in the league right like. I don't know if it's if it's a hard thing like if they need to care more like especially on the last goal in the second period it looked like just trying to block. It just looked like But before the goal even happened trying to kill the clock and get to the dressing room with their three goals that they scored not really worrying about it and just out of nowhere comes beginning and boom. It's in the back of her net right and all that all that momentum you had instantly gone like they brought it back into the third but then one mistake and it's gone again and then it didn't come back like that pressure that we had in the beginning that period didn't really show up again. Nope like totally get that. It's hard to care about the hockey game like this. You're gonna see this team like six times seven more times. Actually not that many now. It's only five but again we only we are planning them nine nine. I don't remember there's we're we were playing them more. There's a lot of hockey games against the same team right. So it's i totally get why it's hard to care like empty stadium like less games in the season. It's half a season like you've got gotta find a way like you can't let last season be it in like the way that is applying right now. That's turning into. They're getting beaten by the good teams. Now they're getting even getting beaten by teams who just outworked them like the to chicago games. Were they got worked in their skill. Could leave alone. couldn't be chicago. Maybe the first game. I agree with you but the second game. I like the way we played. I sound like jim nill. Gosh like where we are still chicago in both of those games. You can't deny that they they didn't. It's working harder right now. Harder hockey team for as bad as they are. Yeah they played well they did but we played well as as well in considering that this team is considered to be in a rebuild the call the chicago blackhawks. And then you got the dallas stars. Who are stanley cup finalist from this last year. That's a game we should win. And in not only have we not figured out the chicago blackhawks. Who are a rebuilding team. We haven't figured out the carolina hurricanes who aren't good team who are a good team and who are expected to make the playoffs in. This is a semi competitive division. It's not as competitive as the east division but still the we should have won that game tonight. We should have won the second game against chicago. I don't feel like we deserted when they get the first game against chicago. But it's all sorts of frustrating this because it seems like we're doing all the stuff right we're doing we. Were getting all this pressure. Were doing the things that we want playing stars hockey and it's just not happening and it seems like it's always one thing they always one different thing so it's either we don't get to save when we need it or it's the one difference of one defensive mistake we've made in the first seven minutes of the third period which was that that stretch pass to nina neater after having great shift after shift to start the third period so all all this i think he comes down to is like we have great hockey team. That's why we're in the recent games that were in and why it's we're still seemingly playing well but it seems like the heart from last season in the playoffs especially it's not there. There's no urgency to win the hockey games when when they're when there needs to be especially when you're on a three game losing streak like the on point it looks better than that but thrown a four game losing streak right now. That's a pretty awfully. Maybe i really don't think that's it though. I really just think that it's i don't believe that the last podcast i can't believe that sudan. And and rymer are that amazing of goaltenders. We'll even the average goaltenders can have a really good game. And i have been like that close together with two completely different goalies. It's again. i think it's possible and it's now rhymer tonight. Made better saves than sue band did against especially in the he played the first game. I think he played the first game for chicago. And it was lincoln and the second one but still i mean he made some big saves tonight. And that's normally what we get from dhabi and we i mean when we got the save it was when we were down for two three and it was it was honestly too little too late at that point because we had no momentum. There is no maybe you're right. Maybe there was no sense of urgency. I wouldn't call it heart. I would just say there's just. There's just no sense of urgency. It was too after after the knee writer. Gold felt like there was no push. There's obvious difference between before the radical and after how dead. I'm not necessarily sure that's a hard thing. But maybe that is a sense of urgency thing. We'll agree with you on that. Because i think this team really cares about each other because the way they play they they. They play like a team. It's not like they a giant superstar. Who does all the stuff for them. So all right all right now. Let's talk about notable players tonight There's a real obvious when i think we're both thinking about it but i'll let you it. Who was the most noticeable star tonight. I'll go with someone who you're not thinking of lindell looked really good. A good choice was playing very well very offensive. He had gracious throughout the game. Still made awesome defensive plays. He's always underappreciated. So there you go lindell player. I love lyndale. he's not underestimated by the stars though he makes five and a half million dollars and he deserves every penny he was still minus two tonight. Though so i know that's gonna happen a lot of goals. Yeah with a lot of goals. But again i mean hey was minus two clambers a minus two. She know how. I feel about plus minus the Again in a single game. It's fine. I think that's that's fine staff and those three players that are playing the entirety of the game. Yeah the center out there as much as klingberg has he'll get like minus eight all right. We'll a alexi act played for seventeen minutes and thirty three seconds which is just about a minute less than lindell and he broke even so i don't know so and honestly. I don't think it was anybody's fault tonight. I think we really just if you may one mistake. We got screwed over on it so anyways so player tonight also the obvious one robot hints roadway was absolutely arguably the best game that he's played the season and he has been that good he was from the first period on. He was the best player a he he was flying down. The ice gary was feeding him the puck robertson was feeding him the puck and it he just looked fantastic on the not just the side of the boat but the defense side of the puck too. He plays a bunch of apparently kilowatt to six six. Oh that's power play time so he already so. It's been a minute on the penalty. Kill tonight but that's the fact that he's on there at all from last season is pretty ridiculous right and the so. He plays in every situation for the stars right. Now you can give really to that whole line brat. Lie and i'm going to name it. So we they switched. Fox's for dickinson right right. So we've got the cdc line my legs good pretty much all game so cdc line more like like normal like they're good checking the good checking line but the rope a hands robertson agree All night in were on the board a lot. How long were you waiting to use that. The whole podcast to eighteen minutes in i thought of it as soon as they mentioned dickinson was on the isis. Of how relevant is that in. Today's time so weird. Okay so all right so that brings up an interesting question. Now that we're thinking about it. Why did bonus switch Fox and consent was just because dickinson is faster than fox. Wh- wasn't looking quick tonight. Real every time it was dumped in he was the first man in it. Seemed like he never got the puck. I don't know what it was I know time on ice would reflect that at it doesn't i don't know it worked. I don't know why it was decided to happen that way but it worked out. Well i mean the the lines. Good and fox on that fourth line with I think i don't think that's gonna be a consistent thing kaz Phase percentages garbage. He's software so. I don't think it'll be consistent thing but you know we'll see hopefully we keep it 'cause good line name. Cdc honestly i think the real reason why we We did that was because dickinson is just faster than foxes and honestly just with dickinson being the faster player That's what we needed. We needed to speed tonight. Man the in he provided that especially with the cogs on the side over there is a pretty quick little dude too. So i think that's my reasoning. Why but okay stats for the evening Out we outshot carolina. Thirty seven thirty two. That's the funny thing is at the beginning of the year when we were winning games. We're being out shot and now we're outshooting teams and we're losing and here's a big thing with me tonight. Is we lost a lot of key. Face offs janke face offs in again fifty three to forty seven in favor of carolina. Tonight percentage wise again. We let us say right in a speaking of sagan on the power play we were one for five in the only way your bed was on the five on three five on three and that's fine. We took advantage of that opportunity. Which that's what we have to do. That's great okay but when we had those other opportunities to go up four to five to it you got school score. I think. I think that comes back to these guys. Just passing like why are we not shooting the puck when we have it on the wing. And you've got a good shot shoot the frigging pock. Yeah like i don't get it like you're getting paid that much money to score. Goals scored goals and again we let another power play goal so it seemed like our that too has been awesome. Both special teams really good to really bad like really fast in it's it's kinda deceptive that we're fourth in the nhl right now. That's not the way that we've been playing is. I mean we've been getting goals bit Side we've been letting too many goals in when we're down man and hits thirty nine to nineteen in favor of the stars and again that's probably whole you know hometown. Whatever petitions thing that you've been saying so carolina blocked more shots seventeen to eleven and giveaways dead even at thirteen so it. It's a game. We should have won the game. We should have one. And i got one more thoughtfully. Wrap it goes. Where are we like playing two teams instead of playing our game against them. 'cause you look at the chicago games. How a bad team wanna play against a team. That's better than you they'd wanna make scrappy and they'd wanna make it chippy in low scoring and chicago did that to us. Both knights two goals each game in regulation ended in. How does carolina play hockey. They want to play fast. Get their chances when they get them. Get breakaways to the top guys in score goals. So you think we're feeding into their systems. Maybe we're not playing our game. We're not commanding the game. Maybe we're playing the other team and trying to beat them at their own game. I don't know like a defensive game. Seems like what you wanna do in like. This was obviously not that the it seemed like we were going for a high scoring game when we were playing it as well i just. I don't know how you would help you fix that light. You gotta get back to what was working cycling with the defense dump and chase get it to the point. Man set it up in his own score goals that way because like a of recently have been coming off the rush to which was not normal for last season or during the playoffs at all so well. Here's here's my thought on that when you said that 'cause that was my argument after the first period was that they needed to change and they needed to do this whole because i didn't feel that the dumping jason stuff was working so i said okay. Let's use your speed. Let's use hinson giri on often. Get them in there and see if we can score off the rush in that seemed to work in the second period in my second thought to what you said is don't good teams. Find a way to win in. They went in different ways they do. But when you're playing bad teams and they still can control the pace of play too. It's like you find ways to win but you want to play your game plan. The only way you get off your game plan is if it's not going right. Which i get in the first period where we were doing wasn't working so changing their is fine. I guess just when you get to the third period. While i guess they like it. I dunno right rights. See see all. This is all confusing all of this especially the past two games in games. We should have one because it's just like well. They did this in the this well but then they didn't wait wet and it's all confusing Basically like watching throw up on the ice. 'cause it's just it's it's ugly cat. Hopefully all this talk is pointless in literally just is to really unlucky games. That's that's what. I'm attributing this to. That's am even though. I said that we didn't you know we didn't execute. I'm just going to go with this. Dumb puck luck. Now and the words that professor mcgonagall for sheer dumb luck so In you know. I just thought about this. And because we're all confused and depressed because of the last four losses. But you've got to give credit to jason robertson. He's been excellent on that line. I've been saying do robertson is fire. I told all y'all i told all y'all's i told y'all robinson was going to be on the ice this season and he review for that and he's actually on a three game points to right now. He had two assists tonight. So who with two points. How many points. Right to two points ryan dose. What did i say. Agents are good at hockey well. He looked excellent so hopefully they keep him on that line and hopefully hints doesn't get hurt and stay out a couple more games because i would hate to see more line reshuffling. I'm sick of wine. Reshuffling let's just keep the lanes that we got and nobody else get hurt. Radulov comeback. We need you. I don't know if you have made a difference tonight but we need you back because we i guess we missed often so all right anything else. I think we're good. I wanna win hockey game. Yeah i do too so stars lose again tonight. Final score four two three five two three. Excuse me i'm still thinking. We both thinking very where three was basically four three game so stars lose five to three to the carolina hurricanes. We'll have another. Pg are for you guys on saturday after the stars take on the hurricanes for the fourth time and hopefully we'll look for a win on this win and see if we can solve the puzzle. That is james rymer and the carolina hurricanes. We got a normal start time on saturday. I don't know what we're doing with thirty minutes late. Like what the heck weird. What time does it start. Cynthia than seven tonight. Starting at seven. Thirty i turn on tv. I'm like what the heck while watching. Brian ray. a guy. Joy de but i was confused. All right well you can follow us on twitter at start casting where i rated right after the game. So you can enjoy lose tweets mango go. Read all the ranson. The comments those are a couple of good wins in there too. Yeah and then. You can follow us on facebook instagram.

"Hey everybody thank you for joining today's episode of Real Estate disruptor that we have my great friends pace Moorby Djamil repeat offenders for this show that got three three. Pov here got a very special message today if this is the first time tuning in. I'm Steve trained broken owner stunning homes realty founder of offer fast homes out the only off market properties and I'm on a mission to create one hundred millionaires. If you'd like to join us US connected instagram as seve dot. Trang if you're excite for tissue please he's giving away of give me a thumbs up and as a friendly reminder. I don't charge for this show. I don't make any money doing this. Here's all I ask. This is what it cost you to listen to the show. I've been advised by consulting. Listen I need to get the five hundred five star reviews and his migraine easy goals. So please do me a favor. I tune subscribe and give a five star review. And you can if you can write what you like about the show even even better. There's is a live show Pasted Djamil have agreed to be completely vulnerable and transparent hundred percent So ask your questions than they answer. Ready I'm ready man all right so I guess we'll just right off the bat. You know I there's weakened of this morning I saw hold onto posts about collaboration and there's the the Hashtag collaboration right can I jump into that real quick do it. I'm looking right so yesterday. Djamil was on a show. He was actually on. Antoine's show amazing degradable but Djamil said something really specific. He said if you have a problem with somebody making money or them taking care of their family because it was a deal that you should have got in your mind you need to change your your heart and it. I knew we were coming on the show to talk about this But it just impacted me so hard this morning and I was looking at a couple of things and I just started looking. Actually you know what I looked for was. I looked our photo in Dallas. Where he was? You're wearing your suit. You're looking sharp. Thank you and I was looking for that photo and through that I started looking looking at all these people that we get to hang out with and we go to collaborate and do deals with. And I'm like these are technically my competitors. I was so blown away by that. I just decided to blast all over instagram. And just tell everybody technically these are are these are my competitors but together because of the way we actually act not like competitor's uh-huh but we actually make money together and then when we ran together I told you there's no no doubt you made me a million dollars plus this year just because of who you are. Well that's crazy but you're my competitor. Yeah absolutely competitors so that was the reason I blasted instagram and I was talking about collaboration. And all that stuff besides the fact of why we're here. We're actually competing on a deal not long ago. Oh Yeah you called me. I was in West Palm Beach and you said we have a problem right. Who doesn't have a problem there? Keith is we'll get sell it. Oh that's two percent edible but you know grand scheme of things all right let me. How many tries to actually do? How many transactions nations are reviewing? Yeah and that's the first time that we've ever actually bumped into each other talking to the same homeowner really good point right so I think that's something that to put perspective there's always say there's more than of opportunities out there right and that's the reason we act the way with you. What was crazy about that as well as that? When you call me you said? Hey we have a problem because we have a loving relationship internship. We truly did have a problem but we worked it out with a five minute phone call at the end everybody wins everybody's happy whereas when there's other people in town that are not they don't have the collaboration heart. Yeah the there is no phone call. Yeah it's just lawyers and this and that and animosity and whatever blocking each other on instagram and facebook and and that really is not the nature of our city yeah right finish. City of Phoenix is a completely different city. And so it's fun to have those phone calls and solve stuff in one phone call and was terrible rebel is. I knew he was busy right in West Palm Beach with Tom Cole. And some of the big stars I was with Brent and all these guys they were all ordering dinner and you're I'm out in the parking lot of this fancy answer restaurant talking to you to solve that problem but the message is the pace because businesses. Hey we have a problem. You know he's GonNa call you a hundred percent total dick move but you want to add to that You know looking at the way that we operate in Phoenix right so Pace and I have a great relationship ship other wholesalers that we work with as well I and I brought this up on Antoine's show yesterday too and I'd love to bring it up again. We literally are getting sent addresses addresses from people before. They've got the deal locked up before they've got any contract like there's they're the most vulnerable situation nation that they could possibly be in and they're sending us a lead for you can look at this in two ways you can be like. Hey I'm going to be that Super Jerky Dude. And I'm GonNa take this address and and I'm GonNa go send a co- you know be super subversive and and terrible and trying to go. Yeah try to sneak the guy in that happens one time. And that's the end of the story right or you can actually deliver a service and be helpful in not knife your your friends and collaborators in the back and just find ways to win together all right I think and I'm going to share an example here when Payson I of you know started doing a lot more deals together. We started finding that there was so much entanglement entanglement between people. We worked with that. It was tough to understand what who who works with you. Who works with me and how? How does this work and and what happens happens when a guy who sends a deal to pay who typically would send a deal to me since feel the pace pace buys it and then how does he feel weird about that? Do I feel weird about that and that was happening. uh-huh right and we got to a point where that it was happening. You know enough times right and and you can look at this and have to opinions about it. I sit there and and be irritated or when it's happening to him. He could be irritated and we could be irritated with each other. And then when we're in each other's presence we're going to be irritating and that's it's going to suck right or we can say you know and for me when when the first time that happened. The first instance that happened to me I got checked myself and the a moment anything outside of love for my friend and brother to get out there and feed his family and be able to crush it. Whatever anything else? That was outside of that feeling I put. I like it. Had to go because my focuses on look all of that is coming from fear anything that why. Why should I be scared of if somebody I work with sent pace deal? That's not feared. That's not a fear thing for me. That is okay. Maybe he had more of an opportunity. Maybe he woke up earlier. Maybe he was on his instagram earlier. He got the worm before I did hands down and instead of looking at his plate and seeing you know sussing out what's on his S.. Four and what. He's chewing on focus on me. Love my Bro. And everything will work itself out now. I completely agree with us right. But I think it's a lot Easier said than done. This is mostly a foreign concept. Yes so how do you. What exercises what? What are your mantras? Met like what are you doing. So put your head in the right place. Can I can answer that. So I think When we were in Houston the wholesaling event and I was on stage and I did did that contest? Djamil was the one who chose. Jj Simmons What's wrong with them Jonathan? So I'm up on stage. I say whoever asked the question Russian come out to Arizona Right. We're going to pay for your trip and you're gonNA come out. Do a ride along visit. Quigley Br Visit Brent Daniels studio all that stuff. Jj Simmons had such such a great question. His question was basically. I don't naturally come from that place and I think the answer to why people don't naturally come from that place is because they haven't seen the fruits that that actually bears when you do and so the advantage that we have is that because we are brothers just because we're friends regardless of business we naturally do business together and what happens. Is the fruit start bearing and what happens is it just perpetuates this amazing cycle of more and more deals in sharing things back back and forth. I'd like Oh you know what that might not be a great deal for me. These guys are a better fit for that or hey I know pace by subject to call pace right so now we figure out how to work with each other because we know it actually benefits us long term in fact the guys in town that have that attitude of what Jim was talking about that. Say I'm GonNa Take Your address and I'm going to go around you those guys. Don't stay in business law. They don't last been driven out of town. Yeah and you know you watch you watch what happens in our industry. Our town town is continually getting better and better and better the people that we collaborate and hang out with is getting better and better and better. It's like your mastermind or master or Brennon Simmons mastermind the two best masterminds ever by the way. The collaboration inside of those circles is so unbelievable. I can't I can't imagine anything else so well that's just Phoenix says. When Brennan Simmons starts his masterminded go give right? The first thing he asks is who in here has done a deal with each other and if if you look every hand is up. I don't have enough hands. Yeah right so so that in itself is is telling if I walked into a mastermind or in a different town because we hear this when we traveled together three of us and we go to places. What's the one thing that people say? The energy of the Phoenix people is intense. You guys are so loving. It's so different from what we have right. It's so it makes me look at it and say well how. How animalistic is it in these other places right like how dirty can get? Well you know as well as crazy you know Is that camera who asked us like man. That's awesome. You know. Your entire team came flew out together other really know all competitor lying and driving together and hanging out eating and the whole time. We're driving the suburban together. Were texting each other deals and sharing and making money money together when you and our driving to the propel studio when that Uber that horrific Uber. Yup We were selling deals to each other on the phone with the Max like well paced negotiating with you in the back seat. Yeah it's crazy. Yeah Yeah Yeah that same. At the same event I was sitting at A. It was actually Max Max mackerels event. We're sitting at our table and I was sitting across from Djamil and I was selling a multi. Yeah we just while we were just sitting there like forty five grand sitting at this table together. I mean that's that's the power right right and I and I feel because of that And because I I've sensed city the city that we've gone to it's broken and that's not because of anybody or anything right. It was broken here too. It just evolved into something better and I and I think that there's tools and you'd asked what are some of those tools right right self-awareness first of all. Let's be real if you can't really really really true. Okay you've seen those situations where somebody wins and everybody hears about it and you get five smiles right right do you. I think there's five hearts that feel that smile. Not Naturally maybe one or two or three of them are like yeah so unhappy. I'm happy happy right so if you feel that in yourself you're not bad visit make you wrong. It means that you're still living in a survival mind. You're still living from this. This place of there's not enough and I got I got a horde and I gotta keep an go go go. Go Go Mimi Mimi. That's okay. Read some books right fig understand what abundances right. There's so many books on it. Take a five minute At break and go download meditation and and Mantra to yourself. I live in abundance. I live in abundance. have an abundance mind if you don't change yourself off focus on the opposite of what you're actually feeling and it'll become that anytime you're negative. Think about like if I'm if you've done something to me that I feel feel okay. I'm mad at Steve Right now right. Not that that's happened but let's imagine it did find mad at Steve. You know what I'm GonNa do. I'm GonNa Mentally Focus on what I love about Steve Achieve. And that's all I'm going to think about. Yeah then naturally whatever it was that was bothering me falls off right so I think the first this key is be self aware and know that nothing is static. If you feel this way right now focus on the exact opposite and you change it. Yeah I think There's there's a quote I read you know and this is one of those cheesy. INSTAGRAM means. Whatever probably page could be? Maybe you know who push. Because I can't remember for the life of me it was. You know the the only time you should be looking and your neighbors bowl is see. There's food in there right and that's the abundance mindset and I think you know going back to we're talking earlier earlier like it's we know that you need abundance mindset to win. We know that we've experienced it but how someone like. We say we can appreciate and they're going to be like these are just like you know Weirdos. Yeah fhu yeah so like how. How does someone? I'm going to answer that just from a personal experience from my personal side. So in my iphone I have to drop the word iphone. Anybody that knows android android hater extraordinarily extraordinarily here but In My iphone. I've got a notes APP in that notes. Ed Got My personal goals right. And they all relate to basically taking care of my family only at the end of the day but one of those goals specifically says I want this is one of my goals too many opportunities not enough time K and a year ago anybody that knows me saw the transformation of where I was a year ago. I am today one hundred percent of that. I can equate to my relationships. One hundred percent outside of that is my relationships but what I put into those relationships as I hope you guys can test. I read the go giver two years two years ago before before you ever even knew Brandon Simmons. I read it and then Brandon had me read it again but in the go giver. Basically said you have to give to receive right so I said I want so many opportunities. The time is my problem right. Most people out there saying I want more opportunities. I want more opportunities. I have too much time. I want more options. I WanNa feel my calendar. I'm the opposite I. They have now and hiring people specifically to handle all of the opportunities. I have in abundance because I believe and this is not me trying to glow I spend eighty percent of my day trying to help other people get from their position into a new position and it started out just because I had resources and construction or had resources with a lender ahead resources with whatever and I just sit here you go here you go here we go here we go here you go and now a year later. A lot of these relationships are bearing fruit for example. When you and I first started our relationship what was that relationship? I would try my contractor right and did we provide a good service. You Yeah Democrat. I did crap nobody wanted to do. Yeah no my clients like hey I need. My roof looked at any Kim. Osbourne do another job but I'm happy to do it right right right. Just think of me. Remember me when there are bigger jobs but you're happy to get the crap jobs right. Yeah and I was. I was running around all over town doing things. I had sixty sixty five projects going at that time. I made sure I took care of you even though we it was a new relationship for us and then as I made my transition into wholesale the number one one person that helped me in wholesale was Djamil.

I know you know everyone should be sending it to my company right. But you're naming dude. Did Wendy. He called me and told me that he was going to be bringing deals in that you guys were working something out for an assistant whatnot right away. The first question is hey man What if I do like half here and half there and I'm like no bro? He's literally this conversation. What if I do have Magnusson in half it magnus west and I said no no? Steve is going out of his way to be extremely helpful to you. He really wants Your Business. And he's he's going above and beyond right all magnetized. Yeah go that path.

And my what I say to him is. I'm so happy I love you. I'm so thankful that you guys connected and you guys are able to do business together. We'll stop stop we. I was in Your meet up which is hands down best meet up in the country. I feel amazing. I was in your meet up and I go to Jamila Djamil cells me. Probably one of my best cash flowing properties. I just walked up to say. What do you have right? Cells me a house right there before it goes on his list of great benefit there. Then that meet up that was I think that was at the Phoenix area. So so we are the Phoenix area. In Jimbo's there's Greg there's pace these two guys need to meet right and Greg was doing his own thing but when you put him in I together we went. He went from buying maybe one or two houses a month in our buying twelve houses a month while we're being and we have private money coming in like crazy. We have a great system. How many houses were buying? Yeah I mean we like overwhelmed. The title companies that were that were utilized companies plural right. So we've overwhelmed them with. How many were buying and Bro? I am not joking. It will make me ten twenty million dollars in my life because of a relationship you gave to me that you could have easily taken for yourself. Yeah Awesome I love it so you WanNa pass this message on to other parts of the country. It doesn't feel like work. It feels like I. We have a cheat code to life. It feels like we have the ability to go out and just play this amazing fund video game and just go play and go. How can we help you? And how can we help you. And how can we help you. And when we go and other cities it's crazy like we went into Dallas went to the propel e event Shout to those guys. Amazing guys We go to this event. And we're sitting there talking to these guys and we're like there were these little clumps and clusters of people kind of staying away from each other and work grabbing people from other groups and bringing them together and saying why are you guys doing deals together right here. This event right at least to the magnitude at your event and Phoenix Korea and other events here locally in our inner phoenix market. It is so fun to take what we I haven't created this. I'm just a little cog in the wheel. I've benefited from a lot of these relationships that have created this world. The Phoenix Phoenix gets to Levin. I JUST WANNA go and share with the rest of the country. So how how's the. How how? What's the plan her? We're GONNA share with the rest of the country. Well you ready so The graphic traffic the that hasn't been shared over and over and over and over and over again all over social media. So that's a real thing pace. Djamil do America we are we we WANNA see. You WanNa meet you WANNA come to your rea- What we would like you to do is if you live in a town? That's broken where you feel that. The people aren't collaborating that you've got You have to watch your back that it's that it's you know cutthroat that its doggy Dogg. If any of those words resonate with you find Denison instagram tag. US Tag urea so that we know where you are and what you want us to attend. We will reach out to the organizers of that Ria And we will come to your city we will meet with your groups. We will sit down with you and we will figure out. How can you all benefit each other? How can you make money together and how can can you adopt the mentality and the energy that we have in this city in your own town? Not only that. We'll also talk about the beautiful things that we do like how we're great at dispositions positions and how paces awesome met subject to might even do some ride along. So we're going to bring with us. The added information that we typically love to talk about. But first first and foremost it's going to be. How can we mend whatever is happening? That's causing you guys not to work with one another. Let's let's let's deal with at the heart of the matter and then we'll deal with everything else you know what's amazing about our local market is I've been in other businesses and I've gone to other Rias or whatever across the country in real real estate and it doesn't seem like people are excited to be at these events. Not they almost like Should I go. Shouldn't I go. You know I got a Netflix. I got this great show. I'm not GonNa you know I'm going to catch up on whatever. Excuse they don't go to the thing for us. It feels like at our meet ups and when we're all together in Phoenix. It's it's not even a question whether I'm going or not. It is on account. I'm going it's like it's like I feel like how I felt middle school going to the school dance laundry percents. That's how a much I'm looking forward to it because I get my friends and we're going to chat and we're going to eat whatever everybody everybody sitting there doing deals on about is like the new Investors The newbies as we call them they start like kind of we had this conversation that One of your meet up where they're all hanging out hanging out in one area and you're like you went to all the guys that are doing deals and go go get those guys and let's bring them in. Let's get these new guys and start doing deals with them and finding out. What did they need in their business? And the act in the conversation that you had was please go to my new people and say to them. What do you need from me to be successful in business? And that's the the whole mentality mentality behind everything that we're trying to do here is how do we take a room full of people and make sure that these people are doing deals together. Whether it's learning learning about this Disposition or whether it's Dude I would love to go on a ride along and I. I don't know what our first state would be. Our first city would be. I think we have some people already kind of chirping in his ear. Yeah we got some people but we'd love to hear from you in Orlando Tampa Atlanta You know any of these towns like any of these Houston Dallas San Antonio uh-huh North Carolina Salem. Wherever her just like reach out if you feel like there's the necessity or it's the energy isn't right Tag US tag area were common. I think I think just to paint a picture for people that don't quite understand. That is that. Let's say that we fly in on Thursday and we go to reopen on Thursday. We want to hang out other investors in that local area and then the following Friday. Maybe Saturday is I. I WANNA go on ride alongs. I want to go into appointments or I want to go into. Somebody's acquisition Russian department. Say Give me your ten worse leads. I WanNa call them live right now and show you how I pitch is subject to. Meanwhile Djamil sitting there teaching the their team. How Keegan Lee? Who does a hunt close to one hundred deals a month? How they do Despu like we wanNA bring our skills and our abilities to the table and see what we can do to help other people's evils businesses in other markets? Yeah and I would say that if you're in a market we feel like you're not able to do this like do yourself. Yeah Freedom Right up out says is you know one of the feedback. I've gotten our meals is I. I'm I'm so glad I can go to a rea- where I'm not being pitched I think part of the reason why they're so San offish or like you know their arms are crossed is because they're just getting ready to be something right right. There's especially you know all the different views I've gone to locally it's just feel like all right when when's the sales pitch comment right. You know he's got a book. Who is that a book ours are so don't do that? You have like you have a meet up and then and there's a meet up outside of your meet up. It's just like a high school dance. It's like the dance was cool and everybody's having a good time and then they say okay we're shutting down. You guys need to leave and everybody goes in. The parking lot hangs hangs out does deals together right. It is crazy fun. Yeah so I think that for you guys here that if you guys have a great fantastic I don't have one start one because just kind of the message. We're talking about here just being the leader and being the one with abundant mindset. You will be the one who has a success. If you're finding your RIA is not right. So open a receptive to this Eh Steve Trang of your town like really for real following the example from a lot of other but I think also goes back to you know the books you talked about going back and reading books because I think the pundits mindset as a leader principal posted something a couple of nights ago. Right guys jump around bouncing whatever so good but I did my best to write the skills in order that you needed and the skills that you know the first we are evolution is we're trying to find the find a seller and after finding out. How do I get a phone after you're done with Ohio? Close them not not closing. How do I make that repeatable? Now that made a repeatable how do I build organization to make beautiful and after that it's how do I keep the people there right then. That'd be my competition and leadership. Is that last step. I think the most valuable skill but I think that is the abundance comes with the leadership and you guys want to you know have this accessible. Rea- you gotTa have that bonus mindset the lead right your community hundred percent and we had this idea one time. I don't know if we'll still do this or not. But we have this idea about having a competition Jamila Ni- where we go into a random random city we get rid of our our existing phone you just get murder. Found Burner Phone Agra drug dealers. I think this is going continue. I love this idea right. And we have a competition addition to see who gets the F- The first wholesale deal with no resources that we currently have money knowledge. Whatever and me utilizing my resources here? An Musil utilizing his resources. They're completely two different flavors and then having people follow us and learn how to do a deal like if I'm a Newbie and I'm watching us just boom getting deals. It breaks the paradigms that people have hey this is really hard if two dudes fly into your town with nothing right no resources no contacts instagram. No instagram I mean we're talking burner phones And are able to put together a deal in a couple of days. I mean that should blow the socks socks off of anyone. Who's been doing this for nine months and hasn't gotten there I deal yet and no nothing against you guys? If you're sitting there listening right now you're like that's me that's cool but that's just just it's there to show you that. Hey it's whatever you're doing right now you're creating your own limitation. You're stopping yourself. We literally could do that. We could walk into a city in two days. We'd have a deal. I have no doubt that you can do that but that years. Do you think I would get it faster or Djamil be honest. He's been doing this way longer than me. And he's waving waste a lot more likable percent. I think what would happen as would have like a few contracts. But he wouldn't be able hold a cell phone and I told you I'd get one contract and I'd sell it. We should do. The competition is that it's it's gotta be it's not a deal of. It's not a check 'cause I just go knock on a random door of course how can I solve your base more rbm salt everything and that's awesome. You will well. That's not good. I think that'd be a good idea. I think it's a great idea. I think that's probably the first thing that you do. When you get into a city you know what's fun? Is that at at some point. I don't know when this transition was. I got to think about it but at some point. How many deals I'm doing on a monthly basis was no longer important? It's how many people I'm helping get their I deal is super important so whether I'm making money or not there's a there's a couple of guys Scott bigalow. Nobody quite knows him in in wholesale but he's trying to break into wholesale well. They got a couple of deals recently. I didn't make any money on it but I was so proud and put on my instagram. Like these guys are making money on a ride along getting some some some knowledge and going off and doing deals all I wanted was the emotional income. Just give me a pat on the back and Atta boy and know that. Tell me I did a good job. I have so much more pride in Nah than doing thirty dollars a month and still crazy to me because you spoke about it wholesaling life you know Elizabeth and Charles Event which is a fantastic event out shutout shutouts. Oh Yeah Yeah I just want emotionally crazy busy main. Roi We've we've all been filling our cup with emotional income for the last you know year and a half two years and that to me is what is keeping my life exciting. Well how many cars can you have. How many things can you buy at least twenty? Well I mean even then is pouring super boring but like how many times can I see Corbin. His little girl's face and smile a billion and anytime I see it. I'm it's going to be like the first right. And for this fillets ladies. They don't know that aren't following. These guys you know Jamila is corporate Gov yes absolutely right. I mean that's to me. I think a collaboration I it's awesome. That'd be buddy so All right so I'm not seeing a whole lot of questions here. Charles Charles wants to know what what meditation routine are you following. I love it so I I download an APP called inside timer You can essentially download it for free. There's no cost. And there's hundreds of thousands of meditations on there so I like to mix it up. I'll so basically do like a guided one one day and then another day it'll just be like timed There's a there's a group called stress fit S. T. R. E. HE S. FIT STRESS FIT. there are channel on that op there. The meditations are just amazing. I typically do between between thirty to forty five minutes in the morning before anything else right so I wake up. I drink coffee do my thing and then like like its into the room and I just get still for that time and everything else that happens from me and the day is is flowering from that place right and and that's not to say guys. I'm walking around like a monk being complete weirdo right. I still have like breakdowns. I still get irritated. Take things happen but my reaction to situations is completely different today than it was absolutely. Yeah Charles Southwick says his Has Rea- no longer exists in Charles. I think going back to what I was saying. I think this is fantastic. Because when I started my meet up it was really simple. I call all my friends. Djamil spoke at the first one man can the first racy disruptors me to how many people can be your first one thirty thirty. I I walked with my Coffee Cup so what I did is I just wanted to meet up. Dot Com created one. Put it as a monthly recurring. So I don't have to think about it again Reach out if your friends posted on facebook we started with thirty. Were one hundred hundred ten one hundred forty pretty consistently now seems like every time we have we. I shouldn't say we every time you have an event See I feel like it's my bet like every time you have another event you have to change venues news probably once a quarter because facets yeah we were on our forth forth any fourth or fifth menu. Yeah it's crazy I'm in the goal is to fill up the sun's arena. I think that's great pretty tight. That'd be cool so a Charles. I I think that's a great thing if you feel like your town is locked honestly honestly if it's just a meet up it doesn't have to be rea- if another local investor even a Newbie who cares like if you've never done before let's get twenty thirty people together and let's hang out and talk about how we're getting deals and how we can help each individual person get their first deal or magnify. How many deals they can get on a monthly basis? Yes and I think You know just to add ons that whole collaboration mindset you know I already knew already from wholesale but Djamil Mentor me a lot. Further there are two what I knew about wholesale and added poured a lot into my cup. Can you even imagine how many people you indirectly help this show. Let's crazy and then I was a terrible closer forever and then meet with pace and just to get more deals just to get more business. I wasn't trying trying to get better at sales. Like and pay Sane. Well there's this place where all his home best guy hang out as a what and so I wanted you because he he didn't tell me right off the bat and I had to pull it out of you right but because of our relationship you know I get to meet Brad. I get all the training and now on a sales coach coach. Oh my God I took one of my greatest weaknesses until I wanNA greatest. It's it's fun watching your students because you know were really good friends so your students will call me and yeah and I tell you to have them call me. I'll take them on. Ride alongs conversations with him. It is so fun to hear them talk about them getting their first deal their second deal etcetera etcetera etcetera duty. You realize how pool credible right. It's just like a mushroom is a mushroom cloud but I don't level up if we're not creating relationships right right and we don't come in with an abundance mindset and it's not just the three of us there's more of us right. I mean there's Jesse Anne Evil Bryant Brannon. There's a whole the bunch of us were all getting better. Our group is getting better because we're all helping each other right. So you know the message I want it in Impart on Charles and some of these other guys is that the sooner you level up and raise abundance mindset the more other people can pour into you right. How how would we um pick the city? How are we going to do that? So I I guess it's going to have to be from just audience participation right so the more people that That reach out to us from a specific town. The more need. We're GONNA feel exist. They're right right. You know guys. This isn't going to be thing that's going to cost the rea- anything it's like we're gonNA come out there and serve But that's a good point. You know a lot of people ask us all the time. Well how much are you charging for this and how much you're right we do. I do it all for free. We have coming serve guys. This is like we we are coming to serve and so Let's let's remove that from the equation and let's let's see Tag Your friends get your friends. Who would do you want us in your town? Do you want to come and show you guys how to get your first deal. Do you want us to come and show you guys how to be friends with each other and and work together in an appropriate way Tagore. Agus t have your friends tag us get let us know what town you're you're you're coming from and we will figure it out from there and I think let's say in the next thirty days keep keep your eyes open and we'll start announcing cities and and and dates we've already got Salem North Carolina Scheduled wow yeah. That's that's Max Maxwell Mr Max Maxwell yes so we're going to Make make that one of our stops. Also we're starting we're kicking off In Bama Yeah. BRIAN TRIPS BRIAN TRIPS. Have all your absolutely.

And then we're GONNA be doing ride alongs on Sunday which will be pretty cool. Yeah let's see. What are some of the questions Eh So Josh wants to know what is your best advice for staying consistent as a one man show Does he want Ah. Let's ask him a question back to you. WanNa stay a one man you right become a two man show right because there are people that are like look. I'm happy where I'm at. I just want to be more consistent but I gotta understand understand if that's where he wants to be that's one piece of advice or the other piece of advice is I want to grow a team. I just don't know how right so have him reply back there another question we can are all right. Josh we need a follow up question on that And and he's is requesting that you guys all Bring her along O N. He's always invited. Yes yes yeah I mean. She's a great mom that puts his altogether responsible. Although she's a little bit troublemaker. To she is a troublemaker always playing pranks and whatnot. Antoine's requesting DC naturally. Oh yeah billion percent dude you guys did such a good job on his show. Yesterday was awesome. What's up Antoine here? All while you're looking for questions I'll answer that question and if I'm gonNA stay a solo. Here's what I solo preneurs a wholesaler. What I would do personally only just because of this works for me? Really well is I would go and collaborate with probate attorneys not as an investor but as a problem solver so most of the deals I get I'll actually put a video of this up on my instagram. But the best deal I got this year came from a probate attorney Shout Riley Riley says amazing he follows most of what I do but it came from somebody he he'll call me go. I have this weird thing where somebody needs a solid car. Right and I don't what to do with it. Great I'm not just a real estate investor. I'm a problem solver So what you what's the problem. I'll help them. Locate a buyer will help them do this. I'll help them do that. Because also six problems unrelated estate for his clients and then I'm going to get a deal out of it right. I gotTA deal. The guys probably saw the yellow bug those on my instagram. The way we gave it away to autistic kid and I didn't announce it because he asked me not to awesome so just for anybody. That's on there i. We handed him the keys. He didn't have a car to get to work. He's he's on the spectrum. He is pretty high functioning but he didn't have a car and so we mccaren Hook Dutiful. That car came free free with a home purchase. That I mean thirty five thousand dollar assignment on from a probate attorney and if I had no resources I had no money I had nothing else I would go in and I would solve. PROBATE attorneys problems. Not Go in and say I'm a real estate investor. I I'm a cash who everybody's a cash buyer everybody go in there and come up with a solution and I have eighteen of them. I have them in my phone if anybody wants to hear them. I will tell you all eighteen of those problems that I saw for probate attorneys clients non-related to the House right and so we bought a deal Funny enough last year we had an attorney goes. Hey We came in my office and you told me that You guys do locksmith Yeah we do locks nothing. I'm not a locksmith. I just called my locksmith. But here's what happened. He had a locksmith. WHO's Jewish and a lot of blocks for some reason or Jewish here in Arizona? They don't work Saturday so he has a client that they'd sit there rick referring to their normal Locksmith doesn't reply calls me. Hey I've I've got a client that's going down the property. I need your help. I go no problem. I call pop lock I drive down there and me pop lock and meet the seller. And what do I say. What are you doing with the house? We made thirty seven grand awesome solving a problem for people with out the thought process so I would stay there six hundred probate attorneys in the in the state of Arizona and are not state of Arizona Miracle County And there's eight hundred probate that probe's the happen every single month as a solo preneurs. You're I could just go out and do ten dollars a month just by attaching to probate attorneys and solving their problems. Not doing cash offers right. Hopefully helping that semi your deals these like I have. I have one hundred tips like that that I'd be. I cannot wait to tell people across the country burn. Wants to know how you guys build build an out of state eight buyers list. ooh That's a great question for you. Bro the same way we build one in state It's it's a lot of data mining rights. So if you guys I've ever watched Anyone who's done a walk-through keithly. We got that little secret room. That people keep chirpin about really dark. I've never been there. I heard I heard has whips and chains. There's lightbulbs there's no other windows you know getting complaint no And there's lots of little caesars. Pizza but No what we do is the same process right so We are reaching out on social media. We are looking at key indicators like what pages are these people liking. Do they like Rolex. Ferrari and medical equipment awesome. I probably know I have a doctor on my hands with high disposable income. I'm going to send that person outreach message and find out do are they interested in real estate investing and with the interested in buying properties with instant equity The answer to that question from anybody. The WHO understands money is going to be. Yes right and so That's what we're doing. We're really looking at key. Indicator key indicator factors like. What are the things that these people like then? We paint a picture. Make a profile of who these people are. We do an outreach and we bring them into the stable once they're in a stable then it's relationship building so the buck doesn't stop there. I had a conversation with heavier and and Some Raphael's people last night and we were talking about you know if he asked me. If there's one and one piece of advice that you could give me On how to like really help the disco team I'd say go deep have your team go deep transactional. Conversations stations are terrible. Yeah right like nobody cares. Nobody cares what deal you have known. No one everyone's too busy doing what they're doing today. How are you going to impact? Somebody's filter filter. The the the things that they're pushing out of their their their spirit of a attention. How are you going to do that? But by them carrying that you're calling them there's fifteen buyers that I cannot shake that I cannot make work with anybody in my team because they refused to buy from anyone but Djamil. Yeah so I still have to sell houses even though that's not what I do. That's like what my team does. I'm still working to do that because those people need to be served so Yeah man take a look. Make sure you're you're paying attention to the things that they're they're liking Reach out and then go deep Carl's asking about the eighteen solution so I think maybe if we reach out the pace later on. What's your instagram handle pace J. Morbid Pace James? Here's what I'll do this Saturday Jamila. Actually our we stand in the same hotel. Your let me bunk with you. I think they get a bunk bed for the hotel. I don't know when I'm hanging out at nighttime Djamil. What I'll do is I'll do a video?

I'm not going to answer that question. You need attorney. Is it happening. Hundred percent is illegal. YOU WANT TO GET A. It's hurting his opinion on that you wouldn't want ours Greg Fowler wants to know your clothes when your door knocking letting the seller no houses in foreclosure. Yes hundred percent what I. Here's the opening line when we knocked doors because we have a door knocking team and we're we're going out and that's the other thing that I'm planning on teaching people how to get your first deal by door knocking.

I said She goes yeah this this happened in a in an appointment in the cellar goes well I need to talk to my fifteen year old. Needs Talk to my kids and see what their opinion is and I said okay. Well if we're going to play games why don't I just take my take. My numbers dropped twenty grand. She's I'm not playing games. I said yes you are. You're playing games. You're thirty years old. You don't need permission to sell your house flat out and we and we record where we I record all conversations with the sellers So and then I post them on instagram. So other people can hear so if you guys want to hear appointments with Sellers Cellars I. That's not we ended up getting that deal the way we got that deals. That lady just needs to be flat out told and same thing yesterday. our Monday we got a contract contract on a mobile home and the seller goes I want seventy grant so we get to the property and I go okay so if somebody was able to come up to seventy thousand dollars what would be the next step right. That's the closing line stuff nail and the confidence and she goes well. I've got a call my husband. I go interesting so you guys are already made a decision going to sell it at seventy I go is your husband. Maybe another buyer. Because why don't you just called the Bayou right now. I'll wait for you. Yeah I'll just wait and if they're willing to go up to a higher number let's figure it now but I'm here and I've got a contract and I'll go take it down to title right now. So she calls the cell the other bytes shoes. Yeah you're right it was. It's another buyer shock. Shock the liar so I just called it right out as it is and I just said look it's okay. Let's just have an honest conversation. I won't see you in forty five minutes so let's just be. Let's hurry this process up and not play games with each other. Her and she was. Wow I really appreciate this. This is refreshing and so she calls the other person and goes. Hey you didn't show up probably just GONNA sell the house to this other guy. Are you willing to come up up on your pricing. The person goes yes but I wanNA see the house. Okay Don hangs up signs a contract with us. But if I was if I didn't understand how to call that personnel. What would have happened is I would've would've felt insecure about my number? I would've said okay. I'll give you seventy five grant And now I'm desperation commission breath thing all over this person and now I'm beating myself up because I don't just call out the problem as as a really as look Ma'am obviously it's not your husband. It's another buyer. Let's just call them right now and only for you guys watch your tone own when you guys are using any of these lines with people because this is not say if you say it in a way it you're probably going to get punched in the nose right so like so so make sure you're you're being mindful and I think that part of it too for me I liken it to We were talking about this on Monday. You know I've put in over ten thousand hours at table right table. I know when you're doing something I know. I have a pretty good idea what that means. I know wants to do what to do when to do it. And I think the same thing your your first time. You're on the show. We talked about the reason why you want to go on all these appointments. Is You just want to be a better still in the house to this day. I'm T- I'm going on appointments with my acquisition the people. I didn't set that appointment. Might my team is doing that. But I look at the calendar I go. I want to go to that. I WanNa go to that one and my wife goes you probably at some point you kind of slow down on. How many appointments as you're going on I go? I got to keep the act sharp well. And that's the reason why you can save your husband's sounds like a buyer right whereas newer guy says that right and it's like no. It's the real husband right interesting. Yeah sorry guys. That's bad advice. I know is great advice. I'm it's the repetitions is the experience right so And then Josh elaborate. So how does they consistent as a solo preneurs. So that's where I would go And that's another question to right. Here's here's the other question any time I'm talking to a Newbie. Somebody that comes right along with me. I asked them at the very beginning. What do you WANNA learn today? 'cause I can talk. There's no that's my one thing. I don't have the problem with his talk right. I'm sorry I have no problem talking so I'm sorry so I'm going to fill your day with whatever you want if it's subject to if it's door knocking whatever it is that we're good at as a company. I WanNa make sure I feel your day which is typically twelve twelve hours straight of you in my car going on appointments I. I mean they're meeting with my attorney. They're meeting with my my partners. They're meeting on construction sites. Go Out and buy. It's everything what do you want to know because in between appointments I'm GonNa Fill your Noggin with all that knowledge right so the first question they ask is. Do you have money or do you have money. But I'm going to answer this as if you don't have money because I think most people that are listening to your show trying to get started if I have no money and I want to get started. The two ways as a solo procure to get super consistent without spending any money is other than gas. Right you gotta go to the appropriate Attorney's office that's number one number two I would DOOR KNOCK PRE foreclosures. Yeah we're doing like four contracts a week on pre foreclosures. I mean you see how many files were opening with your title company. We are absolutely the crushing it. Our team is amazing. My My my are door knocking team or I actually. He's I consider him a partner is Matthew Beard and Matthew Beard runs our whole door. We're knocking team. And I am surprised if we don't get two or three contracts in a week surprised so there are so many deals out there in our cost basis to get in the door in our cost basis to talk talk to these people is almost zero other than gas so my collaboration John Beard is another Guy That came through my coaching program. All right did he really yes. So it's just just this surplus. Thank you all so thanks for your consistency. Though that I wanted to still that down because I think what he's trying to do is just like figure out a step process right right Routine man like be unapologetically stuck to your routine There should be nothing that shakes. Take it from you so so map out your ideal day. What time are you going to wake up and wake up at that time? Are you going to use the restroom. Time that you're going to drink coffee time that what's the next thing you're GONNA do. Are you gonNA do some form of personal development some kind of clearing your mind so that you're in a good state then pick three activities for the day. Do we pay said call Private attorneys and figure out how you can help them solve their problems When I love is call rent by owners right front by owners? These are amazing opportunities for you to get out there and get deals. They're free you don't got to buy data you don't have to buy a dialer. You go on Zillow dot com and find for rent by owners in your city you'll know thereby owner because there won't be real estate logo with the listing. There's just gonNA be some dude named amy. Some girl named Amy and her her phone number there right and so And then you know another another thing they could do is dry for dollars right. Whatever the pick three things make them a part of your routine be unapologetic and do not ever stray from that routine? Jesse Burrell tried to have us all meet What was that two weeks ago at the batch batch office and I told you guys you know I'm with you? Guys are the highest level. People I know and I'm gonNA T- that text thread and they're like nine. Am Nine Am. And it's like confirmed. Confirmed confirmed confirmed confirmed. Sorry guys I can't because I have to go exercise at that time and it's like everyone must have been thinking. Oh good you millionaire originated in a but it's. I'm sorry if I don't do that. My entire routine is bumped. I can't Bob really good point because I love you guys so much I I want to be my best self when I show up to that meeting so no it's gotta be ten o'clock and that's it and for you guys that were in that room. I did have a conversation. Both these guys but we're expecting my time he did but yeah I think to add onto that the consistency agency right I think if you if you haven't picked up the book yet. Josh is Miracle morning you know like Jamila amazing job summarizing it a couple of minutes but if you want to go into greater detail I think miracle morning is Great. Another point on that real quick. Is that if I'm a seller poor I don't know what market he's in but I would also so go to these meet ups or even create a meet up on your own and instead of knocking doors goading going to probate attorneys on your own. Go with somebody else right and say hey. Do you want to pal around around. Let's hang out because it's more fun to collaborate and talk while you're in the car and eat lunch with somebody else and talk shop the whole time even if talking-shop is like have you ever done deal no I've never done a deal either great. Let's get our first deal together. I would find somebody in your local market. You want to build a friendship with and go do those things together. Even though you're not partners earners right we do that stuff. All the time in Phoenix where we just tell people. Hey come over to our office come do this. Let's go hang out. Hey Hey everybody we're going and having a lunch wjr and collaborate and doing out so I would do that as well because accountability of having another person involved is going to keep you consistent. We know that one hundred percent. Yeah we're kind of really partners business or kind of running right. Yeah Nice hundred percent Let's see if there's any other questions here I think Sonya's reliving town where busted out of the tournament with pocket Aces Nice So Elizabeth wants you you guys come down to Houston to Houston we would love. I love Houston her very first. meet up so I guess she's doing official one. Oh my gosh we. We've Elizabeth Kristen that one for sure. Let us know Elizabeth So guys keep firing away on your questions is there is deserve book or resource. I know we talk about preaching on abundance mindset. Is there a book resource that you would go give it probably. Is the one googlers a great one. I mean I think the simple stuff is the real There's one book I read. I think it's Jen. CICERO I believe is her name. And it's called you're a bad ass it's is written. I think it might even be written like for women. I didn't know that when I bought it but I read it and You know made me cry a couple of times I gotta say like it was great. It was fantastic. There was a lot of really great nuggets in there. Iowa's tell people that are beginning. Their journey and entrepreneurship read that book Read thinking grow rich which you know again another fantastic book that really talks about how to just change your thoughts be protective of your thoughts. Things and One hundred percent right. And and if you can if you can just start the journey with the most simple approaches like those few books They will serendipity serendipity serendipity will take over and you will find yourself in situations and other learning capacities you'll you'll learn about some other Great Book from a friend who says says Oh. I didn't know you were into that stuff. Let me tell you about this. Great Book I'm reading and your knowledge will grow. Yeah I would say my favorite book for all this kind of stuff it all floods into one thing is understanding your own superpower Right I if I could some some is what my superpower is. It's opening minds and when I opened my mouth and I wish I knew that when I was twenty five because I would have been it will help a lot more people than it would have been a lot further in life but the way the the way I think a lot of people. We'll need to start figuring that out is reading the book rocket fuel and my visionary or am I an integrator. It doesn't mean you can't be a little bit of both the what do you naturally want to do. And then go hired Aldo's other things and go focus on that one thing. You're going to be a lot more consistent. 'cause you naturally wanted to do those things right. I don't naturally want to sit in front of Excel and punch out numbers. That's not what I naturally want to do. I naturally want to go out and talk to people and solve their problems so I need to go find those other task to be offloaded. So the guy who asked the question about being a solo poor what are you. Are you an integrator or are you a visionary right focus on that and then you're going to be a lot lot more consistent because you're going to have a lot more fun during the day. Doing what you naturally WanNa do you hundred percent and to add onto that collaboration theme you know when we I think one of the things that we mentioned before kind of crystallized our friendship was was Dallas. We live at Maxwell's event but I was the only one speaking it was only about me and you guys all came along to hang out right. You're right but he had to hold your camera girl. I wanted to clap and what you wear that suit. So I think that's like the greatest example. You you guys have nothing to gain right. You Guys WanNa come hang out and see your buddy speak onstage right so I think that's the best providing think of what we're talking about collaboration. You know just time out of your schedule paying for your only Airfare Hotel Weird when you actually say it out loud yeah we just came to show love love man. That's you know. When's the last time you did that in your town right? Yeah absolutely does make make a very big difference to see what else there is I can't what we actually would love to see Elizabeth again. She's amazing that hold. That was so so well put together so The door knocking script that you kind of said earlier. If there was a way you can put some sort of a script thing is. You're not really he saying that. He doesn't like scripts right. Wants you to get in there and be you And and ask questions and and figure out how you can solve problems. I think that's what I'll do is all walk through. Maybe I'll do video I'm knocking doors on Tuesday next week with my team We've got some New People coming on board award that we just recruited So I'll go out and I'll actually do some recordings for the first line when I talk to people because as crappy as the audio is it's nice to be able to hear it and feel what it really feels like to be on some used. You're gonNA hear our footsteps. You're going to hear us like rummaging through our our pocket you're GonNa hear all the RAW audio but I want would love for people here that I thirty second interaction. Yeah and I can give people all the statistics door knocking of what it looks like. An how many doors yours you have to knock. I deal and all that stuff. We can do that in another conversation. But if Djamil and I come out to your town I will. I'll walk through all of that stuff. Perfect Awesome So I want to wrap this up here But we really dropped a massive nuggets. But I wanna give you an opportunity. TUNIC leave one last one opportunity to leave one last one as I make a couple quick announcements so guys next month. I'm I'm finishing the year off in New Orleans with Chris Rude for skillet on December sixth through eighth check that out is bitterly slash two zero one nine skill and then in April Jamila. Millon I are going to be in DC for Anton Campbell's events my gosh that's the double revenue increase profits. Definitely check that out and then Max tonight we have our I guess. Just add again on collaboration so like maximum maximum tonight. We have our own business that we have coaching program. And I reached out to you. I reach out to you and shot the Bro Guys This coaching program. I'm bringing some higher level students in once a quarter. Would you guys mind to sit in the room with us for a day. Four Times a year right and there was no like let me think about it. There was no like I don't know like hell. There's let us know when now asking for anything in return. It was a great sandwich Venice by the way. Actually I had a lot of fun. I took I I took took Taylor around two three of my subject to houses that were under construction and I walked through how we bought it. Where the source came from how we funded it and how much money we're making on the back end? showed him paperwork. showed him everything dude. I would do that for nobody else students other than you and maximum. I definitely appreciate it. So guys were doing you. An accident January tenth through twelfth. You guys want to check that out may twenty twenty year ago to disruptors Dot Com and the workshop. We'll make sense for you this coming Friday. Take two days from today. We go coffeen from Salt Lake City. He's amazing And then we got Charleston. Nana's Mike honest coming in from San Antonio next Wednesday okay so beyond a lookout for that With that being said last thoughts watching heart. I think that's the key you have to really really be self aware and watch your heart And be relentlessly truthful about it. Don't make excuses don't justify if whatever it is call it as it is whatever whatever you're seeing in their be accepting of it. It's there for a reason you're not wrong for feeling away. You're not evil for thinking or getting jealous or any of the things that might be happening but be relentlessly honest as soon as you can point your finger on what it is. That's causing you to not have that abundance mindset or not be able to really care or joyful for other people's success once you've identified what that route is think of the exact opposite and focus there. I Love I love it. It's so good for me. It's unquestionable last. Piece of thing as a thank you I told you this morning. During our Ron I I said Steve You have impacted me and my family so much I get people like when I when I'm on stage or I'm talking to somebody who watches Steve Drinks podcast and if there's one hand and not ah audience.

LIVE Radio Show April 4, 2021 Gummy Bears

"Hey guys this mcdonnell. And you're listening to start casper marts on free sixty five sports radio network. Hey chris how's it going this evening going fantastically. I have lots of candy. Lots of candy too much stuff from easter stuff to celebrate easter. Lv eating candy throughout this podcast Little guys Welcome to star. Cast remarks Along with chris chambers. I'm brian chambers and We're coming to you live from college station. Texas where christie's located tending texan and from the middle of nowhere west texas From a little town called crane. Where i am from where. I'm currently teaching so We want to thank you guys for tuning in today We've got a couple of things we're going to talk to you guys about. But first we got some breaking news For you guys in it has something to do with the stars Chris would you like to break the news for us. Oh yeah dobie had the If you didn't know dhabi had a positive yoga test on a saturday saturday morning. Which got him out of these two weakened games but we just got word that he had a false positive and also rick bowness got a positive test somehow in the middle of the games who is out during the third period. So we're thinking that's a false positive as well so very interesting we are. We are hoping that it is a false positive. And jim nill did come out During the post game and kinda set something straight in according to saad according to sides twitter feed. he said that his demeanor and his I guess the way he was holding himself was kind of calm. So i it sounds like they're expecting it to be a false positive dislike. It was for anton khudobin so especially with what's going on with the conduct since it's pretty scary right now seeing. What all the conductor going through definitely not want that to start here so yeah and and you know what speaking of that. Let's talk about some of that vancouver stuff because Before beginning to the games for this weekend So it for those of you. That don't take the virus serious li. It's it's it's hitting vancouver pretty hard It sounds like over twenty players and you know coaching staff in training staff and all that Have caught the virus in this and We don't know how it started or where it started for this team but honestly crested sounds like there's several players that could possibly be hospitalize. And you know these are like you know top tier athletes. These are not like you know limbaugh old. You know fat people like me. I mean these are like great aid athletes and if they're getting into Hospitalize what it seems like. There's i think there's about two or three that according to reports so I mean what's your. What's your thoughts on that. Good i mean just the whole virus thing is just proved like you don't know how it's gonna affect you really nobody. Does you could be great health. You'd being terrible health. I know people who are immunocompromised. The virus did nothing to them now. I know people who are in great shape. You got like destroyed by the virus. So you just don't know you just play it safe and Our thoughts and prayers out to the the whole vancouver organization right now. And hopefully everything goes on fine with them and they're able to continue their season But unlike some of these other shutdowns it sounds like this. Shutdown is going to be more than just a week so you know for some of the teams. It's like you know a couple of you know positives. And then they're back on the ice in like a week's time playing games again based off of what. I'm hearing but i'm seeing on twitter and other places and other media members. It sounds like this is going to be an extended An extended break for the vancouver canucks. Which is not good for the nhl schedule. yeah true. i mean just seeing it outbreak. Especially like when we're nearing the end of the pandemic we have the vaccine out the nhl trying to get these guys vaccines like. I'm a college student right now. And i could get the vaccine like tomorrow so the jellies do something because these guys are in close quarters with other people. Because that's their job. They have no choice. They have to do that for a living. They can't be separate from people so they need to find a way to get these guys vaccines honestly in my opinion. Yeah i don't know what's What's going on with With the nhl with this but and you came out and say that said this in post game. He said that Most of the stars and most of the coaching staff and the training staff have actually gotten the vaccine. So i have. I have as well. I don't know if you have if you will you. You had cove nineteen so you don't really know if you really do you. I haven't yet. I'm waiting for letting other people get who haven't had sickness yet. Yeah so And it also makes me think like maybe you had a couple of guys out for sickness. Like cog liano was out for sickness like that could have been the vaccine. I know multiple people who who who got lake really bad fatigue getting the vaccine. So yeah. that's weird. Because i went and got my The second dose was worse than the first soon i. It was just a little bit of numbness in that was about it but You know that second dose. It seems like everybody has been talking about it that it really knocks you down for up to three or four days I- i wasn't like down but I was definitely not feeling great. I mean i still went to work in and stuff like that but in and again the only real side effect i felt was that i just couldn't pick up a ton of weight because my arm was completely numb and it was sore for about three or four days so but regardless The i think one of the big things that's People were talking about with this cova shutdown vancouver canucks is how is this going to affect the scheduling for the rest of the season. That's a really interesting question right. I think they're going to be doing exactly what we're doing right now. For games and six nights every week no breaks which we've shown it's very tough to do so One of the one of the biggest things that i've seen is that I i just don't see how they're going to finish the season with fifty six games at least down up in the up in the north west vancouver. I just don't see how they can do it. And that's been the whole reason why this schedule has been so flexible. And the way in the reason why they've done the ways things they have is because they wanna get fifty six games done for a season they want to try and get as many games done as they can. But i just don't see how they can unless maybe like the playoffs start in the united states before canada so candidate necessary possible. Because you got two rounds of will yeah. You'll have two rounds of individual playoff play. So that's probably. I didn't even think about that. But that's that's i think that's definitely going to happen but it it's either that or you know. We wait for the north division to finish their season and then we start all together. But i mean there's no reason to do the right like we're going to be playing anybody from the north division. We're only playing playoffs within the division. So i think that's that's definitely gonna happen. I think that's a great idea. Well i i mean is there really another option. Though i mean the other option is you give him a ton of back to backs whether playing five games a week so well. That's what they did was obviously not ideal. But i mean the sars has been playing four games every week for. That's going to happen. That's going to happen till season ends. It's not ill. But i think it's better to get to fifty six games than it is to say all this team gets ahead of you. Even though they have less points because they've higher point percentage like that would be a whole bockel. So i think they do everything they can to get to fifty six games. No well the only thing i can think of is why it wouldn't be such a big deal is because the vancouver canucks were starting to via for a playoff spot. They were starting to get back into the mix because a factory denko has played well recently in that they've been getting better because of the play of him but I don't know and it seems like a. I mean this is a hard situation. I mean i. I'm just glad that. I'm not. You know gary bettman. I mean. That's really his job. Honestly we yeah Yeah that's why he gets paid the big bucks Certainly the big bucks. So do you think that he gets aired. They do you think that he do. You think the season ends with the vancouver canucks not playing a full fifty six games or do you think that they play a four fifty six games. I think there's no chance because like unless they obviously get out of it right but like if they get ahead of a team who has more points than them based on point percentage. There's gonna be a right. So i don't think there's any chance that they don't play fifty six. The other option is is you. Just tell i mean you talk with the vancouver connects based off of what it sounds like. Is that the. They're not going to be in any kind of shape to play even after you know even after the come back because i think the team that comes back is going to look a lot different than the team that started before all this Positive testing and all that sort of stuff. So i mean. I don't know i honestly don't know either. Gonna be eliminated from contention if like really they can't go because it seems like that. It seemed like they can be out for like four weeks. Maybe i guess at least three at least three and four or five weeks would not be doable so they might just be eliminated or the other option is like they have to play for six games. You can't play less than fifty six them. Jump ahead somebody even though they have less points yet. But i'll be awful but are the players health more important than the you know then making the playoffs. Right now yeah. that's what i'm saying like. They're either going to cancel their season because of this or they're going to have to play fifty six games. Those are the only two options. I see fair. Okay well. I mean the other. The other thing is like this is their fall to. This hasn't happened in another organization. There's been outbreaks other organizations. And it hasn't been this bad so whatever protocols they put in place they failed at them. Well and whatever happened there i. It sounds like that. They didn't follow what they were supposed to. Because the nhl since out a memo about hey you know. Rehashing the guidelines so Obviously vision obviously failed year in. Its but will i mean you say that about the vancouver canucks but what about the stars at the beginning of the season. They didn't have it that bad though like dan about sixteen players test positive. Vancouver's everybody every player so it and they're like getting very bad off their families are getting it. I've seen so it's more than that. It's coming home to people to it it's a debacle. Yeah just hoping that All this goes down so Just when it seems like that everything's starting to come back to normal and more. Nhl teams are starting to allow fans into the stands. And stuff like that. And there's even some you know. I saw some reports that possibly during the playoffs that canada would allow like you know twenty five percent capacity or ten percent capacity or whatever Obviously that's outside of the bill. Now that's not going to happen anytime soon at least in canada. So that's definitely what what makes it more strange too because it feels like the pandemic almost over and then this is the worst that hockey has gotten hit by it right honestly so it's just strange. So i i hope and pray for the Vancouver canucks that everything goes well with them and And i also hope we don't have another lake this again At this point if you're a vancouver conduct i would just be worrying about the health of yourself in your family. And i wouldn't even be worrying about the playoffs right now because it seems like i would almost say their season is done with the way that it is an and they just have sixteen teams in the north division. Now vancouver just bows out. I hope not 'cause they were playing better and i. It was fun to watch Thatcher dim koga his five-year extension. And see how well he's been playing but It's honestly just not worth it if you're the vancouver canucks To try and push for a playoff spot if you got that many people Testing positive for covid nineteen so anyways So i'm not really seeing anything else Talking about vaccines or anything with bonus or anything. I would assume he got it. If if they're saying a lot of the coaches and team got it 'cause like bones and older guy he'd be like the first guy in the organization i'd give it to. Well how old is he is. He like seventy seventy five. Maybe older than that even non and older than that i think he's like sixties but really. Okay all right well anyways a so Let's talk about The games this weekend. Chris Stars go to oh two and one in the past three games so no overtime. Thank goodness i think i'm just happy not to be playing overtime for the past three games and honestly Especially with today's game. I was fine with losing one to nothing. So to slit while i mean we split the season series with carolina who is arguably the best team in the nhl right now in my opinion. That's what i was gonna get it so my my impression of the weekend as a whole is good. We didn't. We had a good weekend but this last game. Man you gotta you gotta steal that point when auditor gives it to you. Yeah i agree is the best. He's played and lost one to nothing. Like and i said last game was the best. He played so saturday was his best game up until then today was better than saturday and they lost it so that it's just so fresh. It's hard to get a goal when you have no more forwards on. The team are centers on the team. I mean like we're already injured in dickinson and fox are out to like even if they couldn't go we'd have to tell them to go because we don't have enough players. It's ridiculous i mean i would rather have a. I rather have a fully rested rope a every other game than making play every game. Honestly with the way that he's been don't have fox and dixon we won't have a full have seventy men did fox are not go tonight. I thought he played tonight. Did he know know fox and no dickinson. So get this. That's that's four centers for the stars four centers that are that are hurt right now. So that's tyler tyler. Sagan's been out this entire season He's our number one center. Our number two in a row. A hands is in and now the lineup. This entire season so far in the game and he wasn't today but we really had to have him today. and then jason dickinson. Who has are are i would say. He's our fourth line. Center is out. And he was playing a up on the first line with prevail ski in travelsky and robertson and then freaking roddick fox is now out too so it in sinners we don't have any centers daime. Ben was playing center. Tonight he has a senator like that he hasn't been forced to play center in tyler's egg. Yeah since so the in you. I'm going to rehash something. That elliott friedman said in the thirty one Thoughts podcasts the other day that he does for sports net up in canada It really sucks to lose games like this if you're a stars fan but look at the team look at the team and who's on the team right now. Look at who is out. Look at who has hurt. And the fact that the stars team is five hundred ya. Nhl five hundred. We've lost ten overtime losses but the fact that this team is nhl. Five hundred is absolutely incredible and eliot freed. Men was singing the praises of the dallas stars and he was very impressed with the fact that you know with ahl depth players now ahl top players age of depth players that are coming into this lineup and doing the best that they can against these clubs. Like these I mean this is a juggernaut team. This is a different team. The the the carolina hurricanes are juggernaut team. They're the only place where i would say. That they're weak at is goaltender and yet alex and muratovic is now back rymer has been playing well and then they third-string adele kovic it. Who is a technically. A rookie is playing lights out as well. So this is a juggernaut team in the stars were able to split a back to back with them. It almost almost three points right. We could have. We could have won this game. I mean it's not like we didn't have our chances in today's game in and we we really had our chances But before we get to the sunday game let's talk a little bit about The sokolow about the saturday game so the the saturday game was a a huge game Mostly because for the fact that the stars found out the day of that anton khudobin tested positive We know now that it's a there was a false which thank goodness but That through mr j. Cotton into the limelight anna. He made forty one saves in in that game. Yeah here's incredible off. All weekend was outstanding and especially that gaming feel like he had some just unbelievable stops and saturday's game like today he didn't make a magic but saturday he and several just magical saves well in the the main thing was And i put this up on nine on twitter in the second intermission was that there were about three or four auden chances. That went came his way in that second period and he stopped every single one of them and at that point it was two to one carolina in a really pushing yet. Then they were. In the first period we played. We played pretty well on And then the and we only had Well it was one one at the end of one but in the second period it kind of they re written. Yeah we were getting airlines started to a little more rodman. Brindamour got his his Group into swing and Yeah and Anton anton jake had a Answer for all of those odd man rushes. we dominated that second period and somehow we came out of that period to to to. That's that's just incredible. That's finding a way to win instead of finding a way to lose. That's that was my whole idea. That game is we found a way to win that game even when we obviously are best like carolina in my opinion looked better than us that whole game but we still found a way to stay on top of them and to find a way to win especially with jake without him. We wouldn't have found a way but we he was on and our ford's found a way to put three goals in it was. It was a good win but we got contributions from the people that matter so jake stepped up when we needed him to and he played fantastically. And then let sing the praises of our captain for a second Heat he he the this week and he looked fantastic. He really did even in today's game when It seemed like you know we were all tired. They were tired. You could tell. The the whole team was exhausted. And both teams yeah. Carolina disturbs more skilled. Rely on than the stars. Do right now so it's a little harder for us to get over that hump being tired Because because of the way that we have to play which is poor ticking forechecking forechecking but Jamie benn play great. Emmy the there were there was one chance of particular In the second game that i was like oh that's fantastic. It was the one on one against I think it was hamilton. And he pulled it around to his backhand and got a decent shot off. He looked like he was alexander. Radulov there for a second plan on the It on the back end. So that's the kind of general then we need. We just need a few more goals out of somebody like robertson has been is continuing or play great this week and he. He was a cnn too. Like that's been all year pretty much but we need some more from somebody because we're beheads isn't going to be in the lineup. Every night and then has been stepping up the loss four games. I'd say well in a row pay for the first time. This season played three games in a row. He played last sunday. He played tuesday. He played thursday and so you knew that he was going to get the night off on saturday. I mean you. You had to guess that. He wasn't going to be in the game on saturday. And i knew from the start that he wasn't going to be in so we needed those contributions from those players. Like that and thank goodness. We got it from jamie benn We we definitely needed it and on top of it. Not just being jamie benn google. It was a power play goal. Which i it seems like the past couple of weeks that the stars have been kind of pushing on the power. Play a little bit. And they've been able to rely on the power play more absolutely special teams in golden. Like we always say. That's what's gonna play playoffs. That's what's gonna make us lose saturday. We want special teams and we want goaltending so we won the game so one or the other People are wondering to talk about real quick for the for. The saturday game was The play of mark pethick Ended up with two assists in that game. I believe if i remember correctly maybe it was just one. Maybe i thought he had to may go got changed. Got your way. Yeah okay so anyway Plastic on that shot from the point. Where acog liano had a beautiful tip on the first goal in the saturday game that was fantastic and a coug liano has had a a pretty decent season considering he's not considered to be an offensive player. He's put the puck in the net a couple times when we've needed him to having a great season that's why people are thinking that he might be on the trading block because we could get some value out of him for a playoff team. That wants to make a push that wants to add a little bit depth. Colorado is a great option. You can put him in anywhere. he'll play well. We'll talk about that more here in just a second And then Let's let's obviously talk about the play of jason robertson That pass out to the front. Tanner didn't have to do much of that puck. He just put his stick on the ice. That's that's he just went right into the net and was perfect So great for carro. He's he's actually been pretty decent. And what's funny is that he's always. He's he's scored two goals this year and both goals have been game winning goals. So is he the new tv renter for a little. Bit maybe Okay runs his hurt like everybody else. Why not right. Yeah we'll get we'll get to that too as well So the past robertson made from behind the net up into the slot. You don't make that kind of pass unless you have a lot of confidence and he he is protruding all that right now From the young twenty one year old. yeah and hopefully. It's not just it doesn't feel like it's just competence to though because he's going like most of the time when a rookie breaks out leg that i always go back to chason. When he broke out in dallas at the end of the season we were already out of the playoffs so he just threw shade on up there. He scored every game for eight games. But that was all in the offense absorbed. That's the only place he lived he he. He never saw him back checking raking great defensive. Play roberson is great to way forward to like. It's not just in the offense zone. He's going both ways. Great back checks great defense while the other team cycling getting getting a stick in passing lanes like he seems like like legit so i most of the time when people say oh. This guy's just so confident right now. They're saying oh he's hot flash. You know like it's not going to stay this way but robertson looks like the real deal like it. It seemed like he could be the guy that we were missing next to the line. I always think of his Is is on of hints being on the same line so like in the future in an ideal world where everybody is healthy again. Maybe one day the now. We'll we'll never get that. I've i've already made sacrifices to the to the gods and they said no so. We're just going to have to deal with it but either way you saw those two young guys. If you like well you kind of want one more to make that super line. I think that's that's robertson in that super line. Those guys are the fords of the future for the stars. I think he's the real deal. I don't think it's hot flash. Will you say he's a great a player. But and i don't know why i think about this but in the nhl ea games. They have all those different player types. You know to a forward Power forward you know playmaker whatever it honestly in the way that the style of the game is played nowadays it almost seems like everybody has to be to four hundred and some absolutely you tell us sagan is a great example. He was a great way for now. He he makes defensive. Plays all over the ice and like he's. He's a goal scorer that's all he's paid to. Do you have to be into more now to to be actually helpful in this league. That's what that's what going on up. Learned the whole richmond season. I think though that's definitely true. Well we'll have to see how How that goes but Anyways robertson continues to make a name for himself in why he should be considered for the calder trophy nomination. Older and You know what's funny. Is that the the players that are now considered for the colder. There is a little bit of hype around caprice off but not as much around like a lot friendlier or some of these other players that got taken. i mean. there was some some around. Tim students as well. But a lutheran your has not panned out the first season like everybody thought he would and a stitch has having a good season but the the two front runners for the calder trophy. Right now are jason robertson and compete solve and minnesota I i mean it's caprice off salute but those two guys came out of nowhere this season. Yeah there's it kind of makes me wonder like maybe the nfl's going to cycle more towards baseball league baseball. You never see someone out of the draft immediately playing up. You see that like once a decade or you think might try bryce harper the reason they were both so fabulous because both of them were doing at the same time. That never happens. So maybe hockey's turning more towards that way to like most of the time your first round guy isn't gonna start in the nhl you gotta start him in the nhl to get his feet wet even even if it looks outstanding. Because the like he was he was the no doubt first round pick like almost two years in advance of his draft spot. And i would say he's total bust right now pretty much. You can't call somebody a bust. He's eighteen nineteen one of the two. You can't call coma bus right now for the season heard cover the susan maybe for the season maybe were saying he was gonna do. He's not close to that. Well in a lot of people were saying the same thing about jack hughes now now Lebron your has a higher. I would say a higher potential then jack hughes in new jersey but Jack hughes did not have a great rookie season last year. But if you look at the season that he's having now off mercy's it's a lot better than it was his freshman season so you can't really call somebody a must in until man. I would say five or six years. Maybe i i'm just saying bust. In comparison to what people said was good happy. I mean i saw predictions like he was going to score twenty goals and stuff like that and he was the front runner for the colder before. The season even started and I mean he he's he's had a couple of good games in the game. I i've. I've tried to watch the new york rangers because the rangers are you know they have a lot of young talent right now Cocco one of my favorite. Nhl players right now not on the stars and he's so much fun to watch But he just hasn't looked fully there. And maybe that's that's the problem of the near rangers organization and they just put him up there too quick. Maybe you're right. Maybe we see more players Even top tier talent Top five picks you know. Don't get put into the nhl right off the bat In normally you don't really see that out of nhl players except for kids that are in the top five. Yeah how's to top five pretty much you can guarantee they're going to be up there but not always in on the draft to be. I mean i mean the only exception. I can think of somebody that was outside. The top five that was drafted was actually the dallas stars skin. Did you shkin. He got drafted tenth overall. And but at at the time he was seen as a top five pick is because because he might have stated russia right and it didn't end up that way so We'll see how we'll see how all of this goes but Your speaking of the draft that twenty seventeen draft for the dallas stars seems to be one of the best recent drafts if not the best draft. starts have had. I mean when you look at the top three players that were taken in that draft. You've got hastening was taken third overall. We won the lottery. In got third overall with heiskanen and then later in the first round jay cutler and then in the second round we tech jason robertson. So i mean this team has notorious notoriously been bad for for not drafting the right people at the right time and stuff like that but this twenty seventeen draft looks really good for the stars especially this weekend. Looks like your journey. Definitely and i mean. That's also i kinda wanna talk about like maybe. This season is kind of a blessing in disguise for the dallas stars franchise in the long run. You know maybe if these guys don't get hurt we stick with those older players. And maybe jason robinson doesn't even get a chance on the stars team like i. I don't think he would have had all this season. And maybe maybe he doesn't develop into the player he's looking right now and like same thing with with a delay andrea de landreau. Wouldn't be buying right now. I mean tons of we definitely auditor would be playing right now. We wouldn't see that he's definitely nhl ready for long jedi of the stars being a good team for more than just this little stretch. This might overall be a good thing especially if we can sneak into the playoffs and get our big guys back in time to make a run at it. It'll be it'll be seen as an amazing season if that's the case but even if not there's some good things that we can take out of it definitely just seeing. How good are rookies really are and especially the robertson robertson and and auditor. Those those two guys have looked excellent for for the stars in the long run so Anyway so that's the first game so the stars finally went above five hundred in yesterday's game for the first time. Since the i know i was two and then and then it back to nhl five hundred but that's okay so Some stats for you. From the game on saturday Carolina outshot the stars. Forty three twenty five. We got demolished in the face off. Circle sixty to forty percent But the important thing on saturday game was that we won the special teams battle that we talked about. We went angled angled sending We won the play. The tar the play. The powerplays went one for two for the stars and over one for the carolina. Hurricanes hits for thirty seven hundred twenty seven in favor of the stars. Balk shots twelve eleven favor of the stars and giveaways nine to eighteen in favor of the caroline hurricanes so One of the things that. I did want to mention about the game on saturday. In i thought the stars were so successful is because they were getting therefore check going in with with a lot of players out in especially jason jason dickinson. Going out early. In the i think it might have been this first or second period. It was definitely not third. It was the first or second but You know you're gonna have to double shift everybody you down to eleven forwards right. So the way that they played the game in with the players that they had was the right way to do it and they beat the best team in the league. In my opinion. I honestly think that caroline is the best team in the league right now and They played well despite. You know not only being down some other top players but you know. There's no ropy hints. There's no jason dixon. There's no tyler zagan so scored three goals right and we can find a scripted feeling. We're gonna win most of our games and that's what we said last season two but especially with our goalscorers that it's so hard to get to three goals right now. Three sounds like a ton of goals but his tars well and That jamie benn goal at the end of the second period was huge. Absolutely huge so So dependable on the game Yesterday we need more depth scoring which is what we got from caroline. Andrew galeano We got a goal from player that we really needed it. From jamie benn and then we got outstanding goaltending from jacob singer So that just needs to be the way that the stars play consistently and and this weekend just further proves to me that like dhabi needs to be out this season or next season i. It's very likely to happen this season. But by by the end of the off season coming up the shortened one dhabi can on his team it. Hey it has to be ardinger. If you're gonna say auditors gonna be our guy in two thousand twenty three. Which i believe is the right decision. You wanna be able to pay these other guys coming up and you want him to have time with bishop. Who is an experience goaltender. Who knows how to win in this league who who plays the same way to these guys are both big players trying yep gigantic people. They're gonna play the same way. He's obviously learning so much. This season like you see every game like your rebounds are bad israel. His rebound control gets better. Goodness that was bad. Were gerard just every game. He plays he gets better. He's gotta keep playing in the nhl. He can't stay in the h. l. anymore it's proven especially this this weekend. Just outstanding begin for him. This is the starting goalie frustrate there that played like top ten in the league this weekend so he proves he can't go back to the h. l. If he goes back to the it would be awful. You'd be terrible well it would. It would either be that or everybody in the ahl would just be absolutely freaked out of jay cotton. Can you get the shut out one one a week. Yeah one week yeah he easily be the the stars that the texas stars best player down there so If we had time actually wanted to talk about some of texas stars and see how they're doing because they're actually doing pretty well done there But let's get to this. Let's get to to Today's game So despite the fact that we didn't have all these have all these players in. I felt like we played in okay game. It's hard to be made. It's hard to be mad because we split the the sees it. The series which i said is should be our only goal so with plans especially like i said in the beginning of the gas overall for the weekend. Happy but is games right there. I know we have one center on the team right now. Put lake when audrey please that good like oh you gotta get one. Point gets an old man. You gotta get one this so they play back in my opinion there. Canes were on us all night again like you said. We don't have the skill to make the passes to get out of our zone like we don't have people who could make those passes. We disagree as they were in our zone. The whole game ryan they were. They weren't but the. I still feel like we have the i mean the only thing that seems to be untouched as the top four ford for the defense and i felt like we were doing an okay. Fifty percent of the time. I'll say fifty percent of the time we were getting. Oh we were getting out of arizona. Okay but the the thing was this game is that there just wasn't enough. Push on the offensive side of the puck. So and i think that we just have to that zone. But i think the reason why we spent all those shifts in arizona's because we were one we were tired to were down a bunch of players and we just don't have the woods didn't have the the push that we had in the first period of the saturday game. I'm not saying i'm blaming him. Like they have so many excuses that completely valid for losing this game but like when you're goalie plays that good. I'm sure they all feel that way to like everybody's out there doing the best they can but they feel like we gotta get one goal but so it's just like we got to age aligns in game. I i mean. I mean look at the lineup that we have tidily andrea probably could be a top line in the show You got nick camano. You've got a justin. Dowling is not who is a depth player. He's he's somebody who the hell healthy scratch You got wreck gardner. You've got ten or carro at these guys. Should not be playing guys who shouldn't be on an initial roster right now but the thing is is that a story. The season is the injuries that the stars have face and thinking about it. Before this season we would say robertson shouldn't be on in the nhl either so in and we knew that he could score 'cause based on because he would he led the oh l. Which is one of the canadian junior leagues in scoring. and he. I think he had like a hundred points over. One hundred points and You know there was a lot of hype around him but that kind of died off the last couple of years. So i think you're right. I i think he we would have all said no jason robertson needs to be top six and maybe he gets a call up when We have some players that are out. But i if you if you showed me this lineup before the season started and said this is the lineup. That we're starting in and joe game with i would say we would win two games all season like that's to age alliance take that buffalo and somehow we're we're still keeping these games closed so again. It's a miracle that we're not dead last right now so we should be happy about that. But when you're one point away it just it hurts. Well the the thing that i love about jason robertson is This is a stamina. Throw at you. The two players that i noticed the most in today's game were actually Jamie benn and jason robertson and between the two of them they combined for nine shots so that's a third of the star shots right there with those two players and they are on and they were on different lines which which is good because we needed we needed to have to try and spread out the offense a little bit of will of the offense that we have left. I should say but it was good to see both of those players you know. Throw in anything and everything they had at the net especially this game. You just needed one. I've been everyone can feel it to like the came to aren't going to get another one auditors. Playing do good so all we needed was one. We just couldn't find it. We couldn't get out of his investment. And you can see that because like our our defense are defense. Didn't really have that many shots either. Like clinger had no shots on goal because he was in his own the whole game it it. It just sucks. Who were so hurt. We have ones that are left right. It was back to back like hell and the score was only one to nothing. It was only one. Nothing should have been seven enough right well and yet rotten made several especially the second period. I thought the first period was a little bit more even even but the second period especially we got destroyed. You know if you look at the play on ice it was just holy crap. I was like oh we're in arizona again over going to go. Never mind we're not going to get it down. Oh here nope never mind stand. And you know despite all the pressure and stuff like that One of the things that i've noticed the past couple games in this goes back to the The was nashville. They played on thursday area. Forgot national the. It seems like they're defensive. Game in front of their goaltenders has gotten better over the past couple of games. I definitely agree with that for us. Like seven games. I'd say they've gotten tighter right so they they've been playing better for you. Know they sucked it up at You know after that four game win streak. They were sucking it up after that. And then they got to a point to where they were finally starting to play a little bit better in the offensive zone and getting that forechecking going and now it seems like the pasco games. They finally started to figure out. Oh this is how we play defensive. Hockey dallas star style. Yeah they've gotten the cycle between the defenseman getting being able to pinch as much as they want and still getting our forwards back enough to defend on a counterattack so it feels like the way we were playing in the playoffs just without all the skill players right and to age alliance in honestly. I didn't know how. If i can measure this in any way but with the last three games i haven't fell as an this is funny but panicky as i have previously about when the stars in their defensive zone because they've been making better plays with the puck right so they so the and they're not trying to It's happened a couple of times where they've passed their problems along or whatever but it generally is and we've been using are defensemen to get into the offense zone right and if we turn over the puck out the offense of Blue line of the time. There's been one or two forwards there to help back check to help with the that. Play the i mean the the one mistake we had tonight is alexia pinched and there was nobody back to to help them out. And that's how martinique got the breakaway in scored the goal. That was the one mistake. I saw the entire night. One big mistake. I should say that. I saw the entire night the rest of the time. Even though the stars retired they were playing a very defensive style game and it was fantastic. The way they've been playing. I wasn't panicky. I honestly thought that we were gonna tie this game up based off of how we were playing defensively. Yeah i i thought we deserved to definitely it super strange. How like are definitely being more aggressive in get. Our defense has gotten better because of that. It is just weird starts. He's weird but it works. It works it works so tonight but last night at work we just need to see. We just need to see a little bit more push and it was just. We were just tired skill. Yeah and. I don't think we're going to get that back anytime soon. So unfortunately we'll have to see if we can get any of those players back. I mean You gotta think that does ropy hints play in the next game. I sure hope so sitters. I mean who's who's your who's your first line center. Okay pavlovsky okay. Who are sick at line sooner here. Who can take faceoffs. Commando you're going to do it center. Goodness this season's nutty okay. I it's just flat out. Are we still in guys. I don't understand. I don't understand it either. I'm just and you know. I i loved your. I love your comment about how this could be a blessing in disguise for the stars so even though we may not make the playoffs since if that we're seeing the development of somebody these guys who might not have gotten a chance in that might change the you know the aspect of you know who we protect in the seattle expansion draft and. I think you're right when you talk about that. You know watching these players. Play these rookies and some of these younger guys. It changes how the outlook feels for the future for the stars because for a while it seemed like you know all right we we have two year window maybe three year window and then you know we. We beat nashville. A couple of years ago made the second round and we. We could have beat st louis. And we didn't and that really sucked. They went on to win the stanley cup. And then you know this past year you you. We go all the way to the to the stanley cup. Final in adverse circumstances and one of the craziest situation you will ever see ever in the history of the world with the covid bubble playoffs and we lose and six when we won the first game. I in a lot of people. Don't remember that we won the first game of the series. We were up one. Nothing in this series. We needed three games to win and would have won the stanley cup in after that game. Six loss oh. Oh i was so mad but After that game six was like that's it you know i don't see the stars coming back after that. That was their chance and they and they didn't get it. But maybe with emergence of jason robertson. The continued progression of roper hints despite him being hurt and then the play of jay got injured. We're seeing the future of the stars. And then maybe those players can take over for more of the offensive jobs that we expect it some of these other players. Now they may be jamie income. Come down to a third line role rather than expect him to be a top six forward now and maybe he can still be that kind of player that in throw his body around us of that and not ask so much of him. And maybe he contributes more offensively. Because we don't have to as ask ask as much from him because at the emergence of some of these other players right like before this season i'm terrified of what would happen after jamie benn and tyler seguin and radulov are all gone like they leave. I don't know what this team is. But but now we can definitely see that. Would this team is when they're gone. Where team leaves it's going to be hence on and roberson as those being your guys and you're gonna have hey skin up top and you're gonna auditor in the net like you could see it crystal clear. There's your next like in. Hey skin ears if you hold on him. Hey skin he he's still going to be around in an like. You see the young core of the stars which is awesome. Because in that. That means that we're still going to be even if we go into a. I wouldn't even say we're gonna go into your rebuilt solve these. We see these five guys in the way they're playing. Yeah there's no rebuild there's no it. There may be a retool where maybe some of those players leave. You know the the komo the cargo janas the the radulov's the the dhabi's players. But i think we stay competitive. The guys you need to win are still here. And that's like that's what jimmy was good at like when he when he was the gm of the red wings. Well that's why streak it was twenty five. It was over seen twenty five twenty six that i think it was twenty six straight years going to the playoffs. Jim nill doesn't rebuild teams he. He's building teams while they're good. That's what's great about jim. Nill like he is not worth it to him to get rid of a prospect to get somebody who he might win now is a great example of that is holding onto heiskanen when it could have had a sure thing with. The guy can't even remember his name anymore because he sucks now but like that's just a great example of how jim nill is keeping us relevant and why he's a great gm. So i think anyone who ever calls her nose head. I haven't seen very a few. I if you it's mostly been bonus but yeah but nil has is an outstanding gm and if the lardy is smart he will never get rid of him ever will never let let him leave so the it seemed like this team doesn't need to rebuild. Ever it just super exciting to see what these young guys where they could take us in. This sure beats the the way that the stars were you know previously before. Tom galati took over. So when when How what was his name Tom hicks when the old owner when he went bankrupt to need to sell the the stars and the rangers in the stars went through a long period of mediocre. Nece are going to rename it. A dallas cowboy nece Sorry i love you dak prescott but man the we gotta get money but ruby rockaways yet please seriously especially with the stars season. The way it's been. Please don't get hurt again. We we need to see a good dallas cowboys season. Okay yeah anyways so we need to. We need to hope and pray that this continues for the stars as well and We'll see where it heads so So we we don't have much time left So we're going to have to push off the whole Prospect stuff but I did want to talk about Two signings the dallas stars made Just recently this past week and I'm going to have to make sure that. I pull this up correctly but We signed two players from the university of north dakota after the frozen four and i got him on is The the captain of team jordan kawaguchi. So he he was the captain of north dakota. It was a big goal score guy big leader guy and the next one soon after. That was their goalie adam. She'll he'll look for. He looks pretty good. He didn't look like the guy on their team like he wasn't the reason they got there. But it's definitely some depth on on goaltending which you can't get enough of so that that's to really pretty big names to to get off of free agent contract so those are just great depth depth signings for the stars but i feel i feel terrible for those two guys too because i don't know if you noticed but did you see what their last game was. No i didn't their last game. They lost the. They both lost in a five overtime playoff loss. Yeah i i watch after the start. I think there was a star scheme that day or i i can't remember but despite the fact but when it got to the third overtime i was like okay i gotta watch says and i basically will watch the full game so man both of those teams it was. I mean that's some of the best hockey. I've seen you it. At any level. It was so much fun to watch but what's great about covid gucci is that he's one of the most underrated players and One of the reasons why he wasn't He wasn't drafted was because of his size. And i. it's and. I love it when you know short guys and you know smaller guys get contracts like this. I mean the the jose altuve as of the world. I mean it's awesome. Dec- these guys He's listed at five nine and one hundred eighty five pounds. So he's not a big guy whatsoever. He's and he's like rocco grimaldi size or chris connor from way back in the day Size so Yeah small guys like us. Go small gays so Disa- couple of stats for you. He had one hundred twenty six points and one hundred and thirty six career games at the ncw level so it. it seems like he's going to be He's gonna be a good addition to the stars prospect pool and He right now that That one year contract he signed is going to start next year. He's actually on an eight zero with the texas stars right now. So he's with the stars organization right now but not under an actual contract to try out. Technically even though his contract will start next season. It's just what he can play without being under contract pretty much right also get paid for it and then and then she'll is Just twenty one. And he's actually leaving a year early to forego his last season so we'll see how that goes But yeah so stars. Make a couple of good depth signings and we'll see how that goes with all that stuff so let's it's going. Jim nill to be active on stuff. Like that 'cause like you're in the middle of the season e- easy thing to not really pay attention to those are two really good standings. I think they could become big deals later. You never know. Yep so we're getting and that seems to be a more of a a thing that starting to come around is. It's not just from canada that all these players are coming from there now. There are some canadian players that are starting to go towards the ncwa now. And there's the the the talent level at the nc double a. Is starting to rival. The that of the canadian leaks is becoming a legitimate way to get to the nhl. A legitimate pass so yes so We're excited to see where these guys go. And hopefully the they continue to Progress and maybe we'll see them at the the dow stars level. Maybe sooner rather than later Not sooner that means that would mean we were doing. But maybe that's right. Yeah never mind. I take that back but She'll looks like he might actually be. The the good complement to jake injure no here in a couple years. So we'll just we'll see if that works Crispy got about a minute and a half. You got anything that You need to say or talk about or anything out to rj. The whole bag of gummy bears. And i feel disgusting. What kind of be bears his hair. Bogle awesome. i didn't say don't get those cheaper ones. Oh what's the other one. That's really good. Have you tried the albanese.

LIVE Radio Show March 14th, 2021 Columbus Game Reactions & Goalie Controversy?

"Hey guys this is mike madonna. And you're listening to start. Casper marts on free. Sixty five sports radio network. Hey chris how's it going everything going. Okay it's going great going great or just going okay. It's going great. That's why said great instead of okay. Great call words selection. You sound so monotone. what's wrong with you. thanks here. Oko intro welcome to sir. Cast their remarks Long with chris chambers and ryan chambers We are to a gentleman who live in the of texas who unfortunately ended up. We are we are gentlemen. We are not boys. We're gentlemen will. You're still boy. How about that. i'm the i'm a. I'm amanda boy a bigger instrument with it. I'm seven years older. that's all accounts. Okay in any way we live in a state where Football is king and hockey is on the back burner. But not for us and not for this show We've got a lot of stuff to talk about today We are currently in two different locations. So chris located in college station where he goes to texas. And i am currently in west texas on the road so Do this remotely and we hope you guys enjoy this We're gonna talk about the two games for this from this past weekend One of them just ended in a two to one shootout win for the stars. The first win out of six when it goes into overtime or shootout and then Also a roth. We'll talk about the loss From saturday and then there seems to be a goaltender controversy. Stewing up in texas. So we'll talk about that for a little bit and and if we got a little bit of time Also take a look and see if the top four in the central division are really as tight as some people say that they are which If you look at the standings it may be that case but since we're a team podcast we like to think that that's not the case we're gonna we're gonna look at the positives and Look on the non pessimistic side and hope for the best for the stars. So anyway chris You got any opening remarks before we get started otter is a good billy. He did good this weekend. Yes so i thought that was the most interesting decision and from this From the team. I honestly i was expecting khudobin in this too. I mean yet to be honest. Saturday wasn't like his best start. I know a lot of people like in the facebook groups were saying like they were soft goals like they weren't necessarily like soft goals. I mean they were good shots they were sable but it doesn't mean like he let he he didn't let the goal in but you know he let in four goals all the game technically so i was surprised he was in there too but apparently their trust in the trust in the stats really because he only has one regulation loss and that continues today so well and the that will bring that up here a little bit later. Realistic talked about the game. In general So special teams were not an issue this whole weekend there so after we complain. It's almost like they were listening to podcasts. And said okay guys right. Well listen But there were no penalties on saturday. Not one not a single euro one and then today five minutes of hockey and there were no infractions. I don't believe that but okay right. And then for the for the stars for today the stars had one and the blue jackets head one. So i don't it here's a question for you Because there've been a lot of issues with this this season with referees and you know they. There's some referees that call twenty minutes and fireplace. There's some referees that call nothing just like the past two games and So do you think that the problem in the nhl when it comes to calling penalties and being consistent from time to time is a referee thing and the referee should figure that out or should that be like a upper management kind of thing and maybe the the quote unquote chief of the refs can figure that out. Well first of all. I don't think that the two penalties this weekend was a coincidence. I guarantee somebody on the stars. Jim nill bones. Whoever talked to somebody who's in charge of officiating and said that ten power plays is ridiculous because it was it was stupid and made the game. Dumb is what it did. And i think that's why we get the response of having to power plays in what hundred twenty five minutes hundred thirty minutes of hockey because we had two overtimes but yeah so Obviously this was a response to angry. Dallas stars management. But i think just overall the season. The officiating has not been consistent between divisions as been consistent between cruise. It's and if there is only one like kind of is that they're calling everything so nothing will not really the only time they've called nothing this whole season and that's because there was to it. There was statistically twenty penalty minutes in the last game. So i don't think they ever are doing nuts. Like i can't remember a time. When we went to games with two powerplays between both teams. So i i think. Overall the trend is to call lots of penalties and stars pissed off and the rest were like. Yeah it gets kind of stupid well. Here's another question for you. Because i honestly felt like the end of the game on On saturday when we lost in overtime four seconds left the only reason why Zachariah inskeep was opened in my opinion because there is a big play. That's interference and i felt like there is interference on the play. But of course they're not going to call it in overtime with four seconds left on top of the fact that they haven't called penalties the entire game. So and so actually. I prefer that. I prefer that to the twenty minutes against chicago. I'd rather lose that way. And not have the game be decided solely because a special teams than to have the game mattered solely on special teams. So i prefer that will end. But that's fine and everything but what makes the game interesting of what makes it. Fine is the fact that there are special teams so there. I guess may basically what we need to do. Is we need to find a healthy medium. And we've seen the extremes on both sides in the game against chicago where was it chicago. Whatever game yeah was against chicago where there were ten penalties and then the past two games were received like new penalties. Call to bill in these in the past two games. One free site and Okay so we talked about that but let's look on the other side. We talked kind of about how the star seem be doing. Really well five on five right. You could say that the that the special teams have kind of let us down especially the penalty kill. Yeah well we got that option here this weekend where there were no penalties and we basically played five on five the entire time but we still come out with only a shootout win in an overtime loss. So it three hundred four points. I mean right where i mean. And that's great and everything but it's not the not the way that i was expecting it to go if we were playing five hundred five the way that we have in the past the past before these two games the previous four or five games for that so it. It's just a matter of consistency. This is that's the word of the year for. This team is being consistent with every single thing every single time. Well i mean especially the thing that's fallen apart. This weekend has been like defense on on the rush so like when columbus is on odd man rush or even just even man rush like Let me think so. Three out of columbus's four goals this weekend were on the rush. The other one was off of a face off so like obviously. There's an issue with goals happening on the rush and there's been multiple other times where there's been very scary. Chances on the rush like our standard defense with the other team is set up. I believe is pretty much solid but on the rush for whatever reason we're just falling apart like maybe bat checkers. I coming back hard enough. I'm not sure what it is. But you'd like passengers. Go through our skates and bounce wearily straight back to the to the opponent but it's been an obvious trend this weekend and a little bit in the chicago games. The defense on the russians did well. It's been really interesting just because it seems like we have had any like this season. Almost like he's oliver luck in the playoffs and then this season when we feel like we're playing well there's one mistake goes in the back of our net in one. That's that's what happens on the rush though like right. We're not not going on the rush there more likely to score because they have the speed going into the heart mega save. Billy has to be moving backwards with the players. So it's more likely to score on the the random chances of the other team gets if they're coming off the rush that's why we were so good on defense. Last season is because our backers would pretty much take anything they had away like you pretty much dot one passenger shot or you just sean on the rush and that's all that we would give but this season it seems like we're giving a lot more weed giving up the late man. Coming in is getting chances a lot of the time especially right now but yeah they got. They got to figure that out. Because that's definitely been the trend. I'd say the past three games so One of the stats. I was gonna talk about honestly before Today's game was the fact that under has gone to overtime. Five times any had lost all five previous before today. And one of the one of the crazy stats. We look on twitter and on facebook and all these other places was the fact that out of eleven one goal games of the stars have played this year. They've only one to two. Which is the opposite from last season. Exactly and i don't. And i don't know what the what the issue is here but i i think it comes from in. Okay go ahead and say it. And i'll see my part Sagan radulov and rope a heads. Sagan's not in every game. He would win a lot of those one goal games radulov's not he just got back he would win a lot of those one games reprehensible to win a lot of those wingo beans. You take those three players out of the lineup and yes no wonder you're try. You're it's hard to find a goal at the end of the game. Like with those guys in the three more berry dangerous threats. That are very likely to score a goal at the nba game. I think right so since you go since you went ahead mentioned day. Let's go ahead and talk about i. Alexander radulov He looked refreshed tonight. Good night yeah. If it wasn't for it wasn't for how great corpus allah was playing. And i think you would have a goal. But yet and he kept to that point. He can't go into that backhand about three or four times today and not just thing it just thing and it finally went in that last With and that's something that the stars have been missing this whole season and that comes back to those players being out with rabin hinson Being in and out of the lineup although he was in today. I know it was so nice to see a rope. Hans radulov and robertson on the line. They actually look pretty good. I like the. I mean. I prefer having gurianov unaligned with them just as a personal preference but yeah whatever but anyway i feel like rachel visit played kind of the way that we that we'd say like beast mode. Ben plays right like he just takes the puck and decides he's going to make a play that's the way he was blinded. It was great. I thought he was fantastic. He was making things happen every shift. The he was in the offensive zone which is where he lives course. He's not a a two way forward at all but he did what he had to do. And he he made more offense for the stars without a doubt. Well i i love the fact that he he just seemed to be jumping on the park like the all the time this game this a consistently all over the ice. You is in the other teams. You know Grill will what did i say nothin' now thing if it has said i said it i said okay so anyways honestly Let's talk about j. under a little bit. And then we'll talk about the goaltending controversy a little later but specifically let's talk about Jacob singer in these past two games and how he's done absolutely fantastic. I don't know what else to say about a rookie goaltender. He's only twenty one years old he gets thrown into a situation. Where you know. That's really what the stars rely on. The time is elite goaltending from two goaltenders. Not just one and He's kind of proven his way into the stars lineup. I kinda give them what what what he deserves on the saturday game he. He didn't play great that game. He played good enough. Which is why we got to overtime. But he didn't like the second and third goals they could have been stopped like if he does stop one of those like we probably win the game like what we definitely win the game. Obviously because we went to overtime. But that's just the and that's what we've been talking about this whole season right is like auditors. Not the guy who's going to make the big save to win you the game. But he's also not gonna be the reason you lose so i think but i think the only way for him to figure out how to win games is for him to play in them more and i think he did that tonight. I thought he made some pretty fantastic saves that glove save off. The rush was amazing. That was fantastic. I think that was one of his best Of the season so far. So i think the more he plays the better he's gonna get in. The more impact is gonna make on these games so saturday. He definitely doesn't deserve to be called outstanding. Great like for a rookie. He's great but like if you're a hockey player you don't want that to be the reason why someone's giving you a compliment. But on sunday he was just a great hockey player and was probably the best all-star star on the ice right and He he's made. He didn't make a ton of saves On saturday i think he only made twenty two out of the four shots that he face so he He safely to and he didn't play great and then he you know and then i was really worried about this when he started the second game because we did that with her four games ago he started to in a row the first one he looked great. Got the shot out the second one. He sucked it up. Right and then and then tuesday thursday dhabi got get the starts gets the starts. Plays great on. Tuesday sucks on thursday right so i thought this was just gonna follow the same pattern with his weekend but he he's. He's showed differently. I it was different. He yeah flipped it. I mean saturday. He he's definitely didn't play balance and he played good. You play good enough to win. Gave us a chance to win even though they weren't Sunday goals sunday. He he definitely was a major factor in that game in the win. Just big saves out the game really especially in the second period like there. Were many chances of blue jackets. Had to score a goal there and that could completely shifted the game like a goal there when they had all that momentum could have been deadly but he held onto during during that onslaught so yeah. I think he was fantastic on sunday but again he just needs to play more. I think he's earned the he's earned games. Obviously i mean dobies obviously struggling well. I wouldn't even really struggling. I think he's fallen back to earth from from the playoffs in the beginning of the season where he was outstanding. He's fallen back to normal. Dhabi and i think auditor deserves to split the time with them right now and until one of them shows that they definitely deserve to be the number one. Okay so how do you split the starts though. Do you go one one one one or do you go. You just ride one until they lose really badly and then go to the other one after that or what do you do. I think you keep doing what you're doing. I think in the in the middle of the week. When you have the days off you can keep flipping. I'm like you were and like. I honestly feel like playing them back to back unless they've had a really like surf. They haven't tough saturday like the played. They face thirty plus shots. You don't play on sunday. Probably like if they're gonna go on back to back like keep them in there try and get him some training him some energy. I mean if you can if you can get one of them like on a hot streak that could that could do a lot to get us. These games back that we need and i know everyone's talking about like our out of it. We're we're pretty much out of it. But again we went on a pretty deep losing streak and go on a pretty good winning streak to like that. That's how the stars operate is is very streaky. Very hot and cold. So it's definitely not out of the realm of possibility so we find a way to get one of them hot and get us onto that streak. We can sneak back into the playoff picture real quick well and then even when you think about the last season To your point. Chris the beginning of the season. We started one seven to one that we started when all at fourteen one one tear and then like right before covid hit and shut everything down. They had lost the previous. Like what four or five in that. That game was the fifth one or something and then they go in the playoffs in absolutely demolish everybody. Why don't i wouldn't say demolish they play well and there. They were hot. So you're you're exactly right when it comes to that and that one of the that's just the way the team that's the way the players with both goalies like that's just the way the team goes. I don't know if it's due to age like age has to do with it. I have no idea but just for surveys. And that's the way the stars work. So i feel like a winning streak is not like fetched at all. I think it's more likely than not actually well. We also thought that after the past couple games especially after the the one thousand game a cane. So the the first game against the blackhawks on tuesday. We thought that was going to be a turning point. Obviously that wasn't and I don't know maybe this is the turning point. We're starting to run out of chances. Where there's there's not going to be a turning point in. We have to do it soon. it will be. That's the thing you're trying to find any reason to be a turning point like might as well right now alexander radulov. He's turning point. We've only lost one. Game in regulation radulov was in the lineup. So like even as a player. You're thinking why not reggie la be the turning point and turned the season around there like. There's no reason it shouldn't be. So you just gotta find a reason to to get on the hot streak just mentally like he doesn't have to truly be the reason like i don't think just alexander radulov playing in the game will will automatically make us a contender for the cup but guess it great doesn't hurt it hurt and if you can make that up in your head like that's the reason and then it translates onto the ice. Why not so Real quick back to injure thing. Because i thought about this before it went on that rant. Tangent there one of the things that Oh and newkirk. And bruce levine. Were talking about on. The post game show was about auditor in about khudobin. Because that seems to be a hot topic with the stars right now Obviously i think age is going to become a factor in this right. So dhabi is thirty. Four thirty five in on jurors twenty one. Twenty to one of the two i. I can't remember the exact wanting to twenty two. And then dhabi's thirty. Four thirty five the reason why auditor was able to do a back to back like this was because one we didn't travel and to he's twenty two so he can he can do those sorts of things unlike darby can so i think dhabi can do it. I just think it's easier broader like on having could do energy. i think it definitely is. Yeah i think autre could do to thirty five save nights in a row and it wouldn't really bug him 'cause like a he's got the young body he's not worn down like dubious but i mean dobie obviously can't do it. He's done it once the season already. But it's more about earning the time now because dhabi hasn't been playing fantastic otter has been playing better than expected. And i think they're pretty even right now on their play. So like competition like iron sharpens iron so make that a competition make them earn their dime so having bailed out i think they've both been playing good and hopefully while they're battling out one of them starts playing great. That's what you're hoping for right now. So he all right. So here's the goaltending controversy We we've kind of very ventured into it already but no no no not yet not yet not yet. Okay not the stats. Okay okay. All right well let me let me finish this off real quick because honestly for me i think that ought should get more starts right now based off of how he's played and specifically the yet and he just gives his hot take whatever. Well i think the way that it should go right now until unless we see dhabi play better which we haven't honestly he had the one game against chicago where he kept descend and if it was like two one and he made a couple of big stops in that tuesday game but that thursday game. I don't know three goals on four shots in the second period. That really thursday game right. Not no he sought so y the way i would do it. Maybe it's strictly to your point. Both goalies are playing decent enough right now and dhabi is just not as consistent probably because of his age and probably because of the schedule. So here's my solution to this. What i think we should do with the stars. What i honestly think we should do. Is we should let auditor play to eta three and let dhabi play one and not because specifically because otter is the better goaltender one hundred percent right now which i think he is the better goaltender right now editor of the two. But i think just because he's younger in he can handle those sorts of things. What do you think. I mean i feel like that's more i feel like it's more of an emotional response than anything is if you like as soon as has a bad game going to be like oh why why are we played auto more games. Adobe does make so much money the. I think that's to this weekend. If you only look look and see that if you only see how w played on thursday and then how played on the weekend. I would agree but i think overall right now they deserve to be splitting time so her however that looks if bones wants it to do it by whoever playing well so honor played well this weekend maybe he just keeps putting them in there and puts him in tuesday against ambi maybe or maybe they just make a fifty fifty schedule like they had we with the lebanon and niamey and just have them are. You're playing today. Get ready for this game. Because that's what you're gonna play. How how do. I think it should be pretty much split. Fifty fifty until one of them like distinctly shows that they are playing better long period of so. I don't think you can figure that out a week. Because i don't because i don't think this time last week. We were saying the same thing about autre we weren't saying how he should be the starter because he didn't show that yet but he he had a great weekend. We'll greet sunday a decent saturday. I'm gonna keep saying that 'cause saturday he wasn't great. But i think that's more emotional than rational. So split fifty fifty ryan thinks that offer should just go ahead and play most the games and he's wrong sixty seven or sixty six thirty three six seven. No no no sixty seven sixty seven thirty three guy. Let me in there chris. You're jerk all right so before we get to the the long-term goalie controversy that i'm kind of interested about i want to get into a little bit of the stats here. Sure so so for the for the saturday. The saturday four three loss again. Losing in the final seconds of overtime. That sucks but i heard. It's more than anything honestly. Yeah would we lose so many after regulation kind of expect it so first of all the first thing i want to talk about his face offs. We sucked that's embarrassing. And it's hard to put it on fox 'cause he still had fifty percent but like for fox. A fifty percent isn't a great night. Maybe they just had some going against him every night. That was that had is number. I don't know but like fox has got to be like a go to guy for face. Offs the season especially with sega now but I also wanna talk about the fcc line. That game was fantastic. Well they were good. One of them had to had two points. They were good today to in today's afternoon game but especially offensively on saturday they were. They were fantastic. They had chances all night and kept kept. Doing what cog liano does he. If he gets the puck in the offensive zone just shoots and this time it worked out. So i think that's great because i think that's all he has to do if he finds himself with the puck and he's in the offensive zone. Why not just throw it at the net and he hits the net every time like give them credit. It's not always great. Shot low targets into the logo. But it's a net who cares so all remember at the beginning you remember at the. I think it might have been like two or three weeks ago. We were sitting there complaining about the fact that they weren't getting any shots on net will now. It seems we've been out shooting the opposition for the past four or five games. Which is ask. You've been winning more no way shock. It's almost like we know we're talking about what we need to shooting the pot more. And that's mega good. We need to vote. Jason robertson didn't have any points that game but he did have the most shots on goal with four which is great. He needs to keep on shooting including a lot because he's he's got a scoring touch. That's been great sekula. Did you see that. Did you his slapshot. He scored a goal off the slapshot. Did you see it yes. It was fantastic. Yeah why does meat you that boy. That was hard. I know to do that more. Sacra i like that. Yeah i don't know what the deal was with that. But i thought that was absolutely awesome. So yeah i all the all the other teams that's on that were were pretty even except for blocks because the shots hat gives the shots had more stars attempts stars had more shot attempts overall but somehow ended up only four more and the starches overall had the puck more. Which again is like this. So the stars had the puck more headless giveaways the blue jackets and again. That's why we feel like we're playing better in these games and again i. I felt like we deserve to win saturday. So it's frustrating. I don't know what it is. I think it just because you don't have enough goalscorers like we normally do. But i think having rad's back and hopefully hints and seems like he's playing more to so if his is playing more that'll help out to Also our defense has just been solid throughout this whole drought as well. I'd just like to give them credit because they've had less credit so far and it's out of his scoring slump on saturday which was fantastic like that. Well and then when you look at the time on ice look at the time on ice for defensemen for the top floor mirror. Hey skin twenty five minutes. Thirty seven seconds klingberg twenty five minutes forty six seconds. So that's fifty minutes out of the sixty sixty five minutes of the game. Were one of the two of them. Were on the ice Jimmy alexia twenty two minutes and fourteen seconds I mean yeah and that's how it should be the top were. Have i think our top four is the best of anybody but i also think our bottom to is like one of the worst so we should feel no shame putting her demon in there a lot. 'cause obviously they can do it like they did it all throughout the playoffs in much tougher hockey they can do it here and split pretty evenly between the top four to. I'd honestly wouldn't mind aleksic playing a little bit more there too. But i know that's kind of just because when we need a goal heiskanen klingberg going. I see they need so that kinda makes sense but i. I wouldn't mind seeing alexi bell sometimes. If there's a big defensive zone that we need to shut down so so a their of great in conclusion of that let me point out one other thing because i thought this was really interesting with The time on ice for all the forwards guests who led all the forwards with time on ice on saturday's game Joe belsky you think nope jason robinson nope jason dickinson interesting right like that. It will be. Isn't that interesting though that. I think that's extremely interesting. Because the jason dickinson is one guy that i love. He's one of my favorite players on the stars just because he does so much for the stars in several different aspects of the game On on the power play on the penalty. Kill five on five. He can be on the first line second line. He's played on on the third line fourth line and yet he seems to do okay or well. In all the situations he's placed in and that tells me right there. Is that if you wanna look at. Who the coach trust more than anybody. You look at their is time. Jason dixon led all let coaches decision there. But he's i'm just for that. I'm going to get at jersey with digging in on the back. Oh gosh you'd better not gone this season. No he's he's coming back. What jersey shirt i. Guess should i get the reverse retro finally either reverse retro jerseys finally the reverse reginald jersey or the blackout which one the blackout blackout. Yeah probably okay anyways anyway. So let's talk about some of the stats from sunday's game What stands out to you. They're christian the face offs again li garbage holy garments roddick fawqa thirty one percent. So i think having someone on on the blue jackets like figure something out against fox. Hopefully not else has yet. Hopefully nobody else's figure it out but whoever they've got going against fox the has got his number so that was not good. The belsky did well sect. But that's normal. Nobody else really did anything The other thing was The shots on goal we were leading by a lot and always unwin away so and overall there was just lots of shots by both teams which is surprising. Well it's especially when there was only two goals. Now the nice thing about what i appreciate it from otter and we're back on nodar again. Is this team been very momentous for lack of a better term. I can't think of the right word. So i let guys are at where the it's whether whether the momentum is going against them or is going for them they are very momentous their reliance the way that what you mean. I was trying to put it in one word chris. Come on. i know moment. This is a word sucked should add. Let me have my moment okay. So anyways so perfect example. Is you know the stars play with great momentum through the entire game right. So i'm going back to that florida game so there to nothing basically the entire game and then they completely call apps in the last seven minutes and they let three goals in in regulation when you look at this game. They looked like they were gonna let in another goal. I honestly thought it was going to be. It was gonna be one but often jer st he. He stood on his head and he made a good couple of days after they scored the goal. Now what. I would like to stars to do better off Going forward is that if they are scored on we need to see more of an energy push from the stars after they get a goal scored on them. And that's something that we're not. We're not seeing from them that we did see in the bubble playoffs one of the things that i loved about the stars in the bobo playoffs they would get a goal. Scored against annabi dislike an screw it. Whatever and then like two minutes later they go and score the goal score. The you know the go ahead goal a great example of a team. That was that fantastically was florida like in every game. We played against them every time. There's a goal there's always they always have a mindset even if if it's themselves scoring they're always like now we gotta put and we're not gonna put our foot on their throat. Yeah and we're not the only ones that they're doing it against they've done it against other teams there. That's why that's why there have been great this season. They figured out some some mental switch to flick whenever they need to get that little bit of extra energy after goal. Because the the one minute after you can really cause a huge momentum swing and like that's something that pretty much all hog personnel personnel. Talk about how that one minute after the goal can really determine how the the the time till the next goal is going to go so i think if we can figure out how to turn that on like you said after we get scored on or we score. I think we're better at it when we score. He'll talk about how stars can score in bunches. So it's easier for us to get the momentum going after we score but when we get squared off we need to find a way to to counterattack rather than just trying to absorb the punches well and it seemed like last year we were able to do both kind of would you gave it that we were able to. We were during the playoff we were able to see. That's that's a good point in the playoffs. We were able to absorb the punches if they were pushing after a goal and we were fine because we had elite netminding from dhabi and we had good deep the overall defense around him to get the puck out of the way if it got in a danger area and then on the flip side we were also able to respond with some offense when that those sort of things happened. Yeah and i mean it's hard to get the kind of intensity though in regular season game when you're playing four games a week so i totally get that but florida's finding a way to do it and that's why they're so good so we we need to find. I definitely agree with that. Momentous idea ryan rates okay. So all right. So i know nobody can see on the radio but have you seen that picture. Yes i picture so okay sorry. I was looking on twitter for specific things and so last game it. It was a thursday game. Jamie benn seven hundred point right and all the all. The rage on twitter was about blake comeau in his basically speedo and then This is a picture that this stars put up on a gardener first career point. Congratulations to gardner. But there's another player in a speedo. Go figure i on board with his strength. Their thighs blessing my feet right and then he something. I've require all the ladies. If you haven't seen the star social media you have no idea what we're talking about. Go look at it. go figure it out. you'll look at it. it's it's gross. Oh it's hilarious either. Don't zoom in So here's the other thing about that. Is a lot of people are saying that that that that should just start becoming a trend for the stars and it's like please know all all the guys around the world are like please. No in all the ladies are like this please. So anyways okay. Sorry that was random but I forgot what we're talking about. Chris what were we talking about before that know eighty sunday. I know sorry. Who that i wanna see. We go ahead. We can move on from from the post game reactions from this weekend. If we want we can start talking about the does goalie controversy going on with the stars goal and so we already took we. We kinda took took a look at the short term controversy that we got going on like should be playing auditor. Dhabi always the ryan arches behind. Were sent all the way already and he's dumped for that but whatever but over the next about three years. We're going to have some interesting decisions. So i got a lot of this Information about a drop on y'all from hockey writers dot com from sam nestle mesler nest ler nest ler but anyway he kind of breaks down. The three goal is at the stars. Have and what's going on with it. So so i we're gonna or just going to give you some Some exposition real quick. So first of all obviously we have been. Bishop is pretty much been in business. Talks all three seasons all three seasons. He's been with the stars but he's also pretty much been injured. All three seasons suspend with the stars. That's an issue. I think it's so this is just to take real quick. I think it's worth having that potential for great goaltending and him being injured. I think that's worth it. So i think he's definitely a guy that we should be keeping navy resigning. If auditor doesn't workout but anyway i liked them bishop. I think he's definitely our number one goalie especially now that he's not doing great. So yeah and he's signed till twenty twenty three and after that he'll become an unrestricted free agent. The next we have anton khudobin. We all know how that went down. Great playoffs he was a decent us. A great backup last season during the regular season as well and he's just been decent overall for the stars the the best back. I think we've had in a long time. Actually i honestly the best backup since mike smith. Since mike's back to tha that's what i was thinking but yet he he's obviously been fantastic for us. Got a big pay increase. He's also the signed until twenty twenty three after twenty twenty three. He will also become an unrestricted free agent. The same year has been bishop. Both of them signed till twenty twenty three and then we got otter who He signed his deal two years ago for three year. Entry level deal so he signed until twenty twenty two. Well he'll wear. He'll become a restricted free agent. So that means we're more than likely to sign him So we talked a lot about expansion so bishop will have to be saved during the expansion drafts because he has that. No movement clause in order is not eligible because he hasn't played enough. Nhl games so he would be protected from expansion. Two would leave. Dhabi open if if that's Something that seattle wants to do. But we'll get into that a little bit more too. But he signed until twenty twenty two too restricted free agent. Obviously he's come up here a lot. Sooner than some people would have liked. I think he was more than ready to start playing here but a lot of were hoping that he will stay in texas until twenty deal is up and that's kind of what a what who wrote this article was sam thought sam that offer even after this season should should kind of stay down in texas and build up his game from there so i wanna get your take ryan. What does the situation look like. After twenty twenty three win bishops contract runs out and khudobin's contract runs out. I'll tell you why. Because i think i'm gonna go even before that. Can i say for next season. Yes go for next season so for next season This is my heartache in. This is what i think is going to happen. I think it's going to be bishop and On jer nix year as our tandem in. Here's the reason why Some people are saying. Oh we should do a a a three goalie rotation that's obviously been proven that stupid. That's absolutely stupid. And we in the most recent example of that is the rangers when you had lung quiz. The veteran georgi of the good goal the good young goaltender and An interest again. Who is a really good young player and that didn't work at all. They between the three of them. It did not work so the other thing is is that you have to look ahead to the seattle expansion draft right and i think it comes down to two players when it for the sars and out of those players one dame alexi in the other is anton khudobin now anton khudobin for an expansion team will probably be a decent starting number one goaltender for a first year expansion team and i could see that 'cause it's only for a couple of years so he he wouldn't be there for a long term and that's exactly what they want him for He's proven that he can be a good goaltender. Especially when called upon to be the number one when you're number one is really hurt if there's no other options for a number one for the seattle cracking and I just don't see how we can keep all three regardless of the expansion draft. So what i think happens is i think that He gets traded. This offseason probably is my is my best guest and then auditor re rejoins the stars for the beginning of next season. Yeah i don't know how. But i think you kinda read my mind. I would agree with that. I think he's either. He's either kept on this offseason as a expansion draft bait and you hope that they take khudobin over dickinson or Or he's traded after the season you may be. He's traded for expansion draft bait or maybe he's just traded straight up for another death player or something. But i think i think definitely who khudobin's contract is not worth keeping when you see how good autre already is. I think having offer play these games and play as good as he's been and then as soon as bishop comes back you just sit in the back down to the ahl for for two more full seasons. I think is kind of ridiculous. Rental is like right like you can say he always going to get better down there. But like we don't know that like h hockey's oxidative from from an agent hockey players who come up always say that said there's a different intensity guys are bigger a skate faster. They hit harder. They shoot harder they shoot faster. They're harder to look around. So there's obviously a difference and i think right now. We're we're really watching otter figure those things out like in the beginning of this. We're talking about how he's terrible. It looking around screens and stuff. He started figuring that stuff out really holding under. Yeah he's he's terrible holding rebounds he's figuring some of that stuff out too so we'll whoops but anyway i think sitting back down the l. He he won't get. He won't get good as as fast as people think or as well as people think like he won't i think he's at a ceiling for the h. l. I don't think he can get any better than he is playing h. l. games and i think that's detrimental to our other goalie prospects to like 'cause if you want to get better you have to test them out. As being a starting goaltender if you're playing in the h. l. until twenty twenty two your banking on bishops gone offers guy so if you're banking on that he's got a play pretty much every night so you're taking starts away from other goalies who who could be our next guy that we just don't know about. I don't think that's good for goalie. Prospect depth officer. And i think i think he had a great season last season. I think that's a career season for him and that's a great thing to hang his hat on. But i don't think that's something that we can expect and i don't think it's something that we should rely on joe going into these next few seasons. I don't think it should be the one two punch of dhabi and bishop. I think we should hope that bishop can stay healthy enough for us to get a cup run. I think that is really win. We're going to have the best chance to win. A stanley cup is bishop healthy. From the first game until we're holding the stanley cup. If that ever happened season. I think we're like a favorite to win the stanley cup. Like if that that'd be amazing in with oughta just backing up for those seasons he get plenty of plenty of reps there especially if he gets injured. 'cause like i don't think bishops get last three seasons without getting injured again honestly. So he'll get those reps there. I think landed both good enough to be Once a week backup And i think just expecting oughta go straight from age being started early. Twenty twenty three which i think is likely i think after twenty twenty three. We're not gonna have been bishop. I think there's going to be the guy. I think trying to get him to go straight from the number one goal in. Nhl is kind of foolish time. pack. I don't even know where to serve with that The one thing. I would be really scared about with us. Is what if he's what if he's not really the real deal like what if he's not the the guy that we hope. We expect him to be. So we let let. That's what we're looking at right now though right right but but this is a different year and you could argue that this is a different year because because of the schedule that the way that it is I mean the circumstances surrounding every single team in the nhl right now where just about everybody has. Somebody hurts and i don't know but i don't i mean i i don't know the right answer the only way you can say i think the only way you can say. He's not getting like quality reps. Right now is is like saying that this isn't pure. Nhl caliber hockey. I think that's not true. I think we're definitely seeing a good. Nhl product at their especially right. Now says we're getting into full swing. I mean it took a good two to three weeks navy to get going but this is nhl hockey like you might be a little tired nhl hockey but like this is a joke caliber rocky and he's standing up to a great. I mean if he'd like all of a sudden just falls off the map after we've already traded dhabi late. That's obviously a risk. You have to take like you never know if the guy's gonna do that but from looking at him right now he's ready to play in the nhl like from these games. He is in nhl goaltender right now in his definitely good enough to be a backup and like we're we're talking about right now. He's he might be good to be the starter over. W so i think sitting him down to the h he'll is just a dumping and when we have dhabi and bishop locked down for twenty twenty three i. I don't see how both of them stay that long. Unless we unless restraining order which i also think is a bad. The that offer is not on the table. If i'm jim nill artery is one hundred percent. Yeah on the table. I would agree. I think he's i think he's the future of the dallas stars i think he's going to be the starter and twenty two thousand four at least like at minimum. So i i think he's probably the best prospect right now for the stars and he should be held onto you and that's why we should get rid of either khudobin or bishop and let him let him have a chance in the nhl getting any better agents already too good for that. So here's the deal with With jay cutler. And why. I'm a little scared to bring him up in the to the nhl like for to be the like the guy right now or in the next couple of years in the next couple of years. Okay so if we look at. It's after bishop or you're talking about before bishop and when you say kind of like handing off the olympic torch so maybe kind of inbetween co where it starts like maybe sixty forty seventy thirty and then it fits fifty fifty hundred takes over. Am bishop retires. Release or something The when i think about other young goaltenders in the nhl are doing really well. I don't know if. I put jake off in that same category as these goaltenders. Here's the goaltenders. I'm thinking of right now. So dodger emco in vancouver. I don't know if he's in the same in the same category knob. Ben mckenzie blackwood. I don't know if i would put him in this category as mackenzie blackwood of new jersey. But carter heart. I would definitely not put him in the same category as quarter heart now. Two of those three guys are these order. Further team right now and They've proven that Mckinsey blackwood has proven that. He's the starter they got corey crawford tobacco up then. Things happened with corey crawford and then a quarter heart is is undisputed number goaltender and he's one of the top ten goaltenders in the league and he's young he's twenty three twenty four And then the only one that i would say that might be kinda iffy about if it's his job or not although he's played well in the past couple of weeks or so is that co and they've he's kinda split. The starts with brian hopely. They're vancouver Fifty fifty. So i don't know if i would put jake off in that same category especially as those three goaltenders. Maybe thatcher tim show but thatcher co was already in. Nhl goaltender last year and he was already projected to make the nhl roster. And jake wasn't so my. I guess my question to you is do you think that jay cotton has the same and and do it quick. 'cause we got about four and a half minutes left Do you think he has the same. Nhl potential as those three guys. I absolutely do. I think the difference is the amount of starts. He's had i mean carter heart so first of all i you guys. He said auditors. Like two years younger than both of them carter heart and An auditor about the same age about twenty two. But again like you said. Carter heart has been relied on his the guy like he's getting pretty much every start right now right so seventy percent of them. I would bet. I hadn't followed like very well. This year i feel like auditor had as many starts as part of heart. He would at least be in that conversation like right. Now it's fifty fifty like isn't it like between starts for the stars goalie. It's got to be around fifty. I dhabi's started fourteen and under started ten or eleven something like that. Yeah so i think if auditors starts as many games as these big names have been that he would be in that conversation too. I don't think he should be starting that many games right now like i mean same reason. Why why we we thought. Heiskanen was snubbed from calder. Like he didn't play thirty minutes like some of these other kids did he. Didn't he didn't get all the time he wasn't the guy on the first powerful unit. He was the guy on the second power play unit just because we had a cleaner. So i think it's kind of the same thing like it's a good thing. They have to play that much. Because it means we have depth in that spot but if he was playing that much i feel he being the same the same spot as those guys. Maybe not as good as carter harks card heart. Obviously he's been fantastic. But i think he definitely has the potential to be up there with those guys so even dr. Tim co who had an excellent postseason. Specially deco has has been. He's been pretty broad. Pretty not good this this. This regular seasons have been pretty rough series. I think he's gonna be out of league. Come next season. you really think so. Hot take adult think so but Honestly so i'm going to summarize my whole spiel healer. 'cause i thought this conversation super interesting i think dobie either is picked up by expansion which i think is less likely. Or he's traded this offseason. Which i think is more likely and we go bishop. Autre until twenty twenty three when bishop becomes goalie or when bishops contract runs up and then i think offers the guy so i think we're both on the same page there. Well you know it it. It actually is a good thing that that we're talking about this because it means that we have depth at that position right kind of a good thing. Yeah we got we got. You can get something from from dhabi. I mean let's not. Let's not forget about that. Goalies don't fetch as much on the trade market as you think so I really don't think we would get much for wf. Did okay all right. We got to wrap this up. 'cause we got about a minute and a half Anything you wanna say Stars related or non-serbs related to wrap this up. Three out of four points is good. We have to play lightning. That's bad let's be lightning and then beat red wings in go four in a row. That'd be good. Good job chris.

2020 Stanley Cup Playoffs Game 2 Round 2 Stars/Avalanche

Starcastic Remarks-The Only Dallas Stars Fan-Led Podcast

2020 Stanley Cup Playoffs Game 2 Round 2 Stars/Avalanche

"And off and welcome back to star cast remarks the only Stars family had podcast. We're back with Chris here today. I'm Ryan and what a game by the Stars? Yes. I hate McKinnon he can oh, you know what? We didn't even talk about I think that phrase to add to the end of that sentence. I'm sure we'll come up with something by the end of the podcast whatever figure something out. Yeah, we'll figure something out. Okay. So anyways, I have never been so happy to be proved wrong cuz you know, when we were doing this season preview or season preview the round 2 predictions and everything. I was saying that I didn't think that the Stars could keep up with the Avalanche. Apparently we can in just about every category. Well, what's happening in my opinion is the stars are exposing the Avalanches depth. They have none they have Nathan MacKinnon landeskog Makar and greens. And those are the those are there for players. And after that there is nobody in the stores are taken advantage of them rantanen. He wasn't even in this game. He was nothing. I really think that they missed Eric Johnson today. Like they I think he's like number five or number six on Thursday or depth chart, but I mean you can see even with the stars and the round-robin series before we started the play-offs and even before that. We were complaining about missing jobs. And we're complaining about how Sakura has been was playing bad. Especially that one game sidenote. He's been playing a lot better. I've noticed a lot of it had to put you and had a good day for doing had a great two on one that he stopped. So I've been really impressed by both of them and they played a lot more to now now I think fedun is Playing too many minutes to where he's losing his Effectiveness. I would scale it back maybe just a little bit. But other than that, this was like a complete game for the Stars package. We knew that they were going to push back in the first period of a pushback. Oh, yeah. They I mean if it wasn't for our amazing goaltender Dhabi, there's no chance for in this game at all. It should have been four goals in the first at least David saved our lives in the first. There's no way. It should have been 1-0 praise to the all-mighty. Holy there is a Mister Who Tobin he has played for outstanding games in a row. He is 585. Yeah, five more like, yeah, so so that's something that we keep forgetting to mention long is it we're on a five-game winning streak in the playoffs. Yep, three against the flames and then two against the Avalanche and we were all I mean myself included. We were all scared that Colorado was going to wipe the floor with us considering they destroyed Arizona in the last two games 14 to 2 and goals. So I guess that speaks more to how terrible the Arizona Coyotes were off, but Me and I have never been so happy to be proven wrong. I go back to that anyways, so let's go back to Dobby Dobby. Oh my gosh dobi dobi dobi out of the 1st. There were 20 shots from the Colorado Avalanche just like we said they came out hard but phone number the last time there's been 20 shots in the first period of a game. I I can't remember a game like that at all. It was so lopsided and he saved all but one way, he's a 19 shots in the first. And honestly if it weren't for his play in the first period where we were just trying to get our legs under us, or I guess we were just trying to Outlast the same momentum and the attack of the Colorado Avalanche for trying to get revenge for losing that first game man. If it wasn't for him we wouldn't have won this game. It's at loss. 30 at least with with with an average to good goaltender. It's at least 300 S. Well I I counted I counted at least five. I was thinking it would there were like four good shots that I thought for sure we go in and it would have been 5 to nothing compared to 120 and because of that outstanding performance from our goaltenders again, and you know, we keep thinking, you know, maybe this way GM has better goaltending than us know. I don't I don't think there's another team right now that has a better goaltending tandem than a dollar stars. And all right now it's all food open. It's not even officially open right now. He's the best coach playoffs in my opinion even even from March from especially from his last game. Well and everybody thinks that he's so young and everything but he's only choice 35. He's an old Point. Yeah, and you know, we'll everyone was talking about before all of this happened all the Cove. It's tough when we were talking about this return to play action game. Everything is which team would benefit the most and a lot of a lot of you know, commentators are saying oh, well, it's going to benefit teams like like Carolina with a bunch of Young Guns and everything and obviously that has been proven false by the Dallas Stars with the play of their veterans one who'd open and then two will add Mister Joe pavelski. I mean just in the playoffs he has earned his seven million dollars in my opinion. Oh, yeah. He he get this so NBC is all you know. Google gaga dying over Nathan Nathan MacKinnon know. Yeah Nathan MacKinnon. Oh, I almost had kale McKinnon. So you forget his name. I know they said it like yeah. I know they thought I heard it. Like I'm very curious. I might go back and actually like count how many times I said I but we stopped watching the intermission Ford's I couldn't watch them. I turned them off. I turned off the TV and looked dead. The scoreboard to see when it started to get right but he has as many goals as Nathan MacKinnon. Yeah, but as as many goals as 7 in the play-offs, oh my goodness. I understand that. He's winning the the I guess the points raised in the play-offs, but you There are so many stars that are outperforming themselves from what we were expecting them pavelski has seven goals. Hey skin and we kind of expected but still he's outperforming even see myself with fourteen points. I mean, oh my goodness. Stop talking about Nathan MacKinnon starring Rancho dobi dobi again this game. So like I said last game not just the big save said he made I can't think of one juicy rebound that he gave up. He he held on his so many pucks. So many up on his shoulders that he clamped down on with the glove so many kicks out with the pads way to the point. It was just great saves just putting on a clinic today. It was outstanding to watch. I just can't believe the the play of this guy. I mean, I mean we all knew he was good and we were like, you know, you know, even myself included talking about him was his stats were so good because he was only playing half of the time and you know, he might have been playing against lesser teams are so I have nothing to back that up on haven't done my research on that. But he said he led the league in save percentage this year as a as the backup goaltender for the stars and oh my goodness has she shown up in the playoffs in Iraq? He's got he's got the most highly potent offense in the league. He's got a 9:30 save percentage against him and the only reason there's even five goals is because of the arguably best player on the in the league that's on the ice against him Nathan MacKinnon Nathan MacKinnon with 5.5 goals in this in these playoffs. Yeah, just outstanding work outstanding work from that man. I really hope we keep him a little don't think there's a chance. I hope we need to but I think there's no way he's worth way too much money now. Yeah, it's if he takes us even to the Conference Finals and we end up winning this series. He's going to be looking I would think at least 3 and 1/2 million plus for his for his next contract. I mean, I understand he's only Thirty he's only he's already thirty-five but he's still good three years deserves a yeah. Yeah. Now I you know, I thought crossed my mind about this and then it was really funny because the NBC announcers also mentioned this as well, but you know, I haven't really thought about this but this maybe one of his opens last chances to actually get a Stanley Cup ring. I don't I can't tell you if he's gotten one or not. Has he gotten one? Do you know I don't believe so. I think he was on Boston, but I think he left Boston like just before or after they got it. I can look it up real quick while you keep talking about. How greedy is if you want. Yeah Ray Vaughan him as much as as we want. So out of the sixty minutes that he played today. He's got home you save 38 had a 40/40 shots again. The stars are not really known for that. But he's still doing it. He's safe 34-30 out of even strong. He's saved eight 4:10 on the PowerPlay and then his save percentage was a whopping 95% 95% that is absolutely insane and you know to give credit to the stars as well. They played at least on the 1st. But in the definitely in the 3rd. More so than the second cuz they kind of birth. Wrapped it up and shook it down. But none of the Stars ended below zero today in there plus minus. So that tells me that if they were down there for a goal against they made up for it with by being out on the ice when a goal was scored. So just fantastic numbers and from who Tobin great defense in the 3rd. Thursday and man who is my daddy as your little thing says right there. Yes, so he did technically win a ring and 2011, but he never got into a game. So he has a he has a ring for being with Boston during 2011, but I'm sure he has an asterik an asterisk on that ring a well. He would have no a stroke on this Earth if he took us in won the Stanley Cup, they were no way get the playoff MVP right now the way he's playing if he keeps doing it well and you know, if you're this is the last thing I'll say about dog. Hobby is if your rig bonus and Ben Bishop is cleared to play and he's no longer unfit to play. Do you just keep writing who'd open until khudobin has a bad game right where I am right now, you definitely do without a doubt. It would it would take an absolute moron to take him out of the game right now. He's playing so hot you ride him until he completely explodes honestly, right and then, you know Rick bowness Thursday an excellent job. We we get onto him a lot for the way he is and everything like that, but honestly he is You know, he really is doing a lot better job and me included gave him a lot of crap for what what he's done. He has some questionable decisions that he's made in the past. But I really Gotta Give him credit right now ever since he called that timeout and the Calgary game and game 6. I've just had nothing to complain about it. He's been doing all the garbage he was doing in the regular season. So like during the season he's like changing the lines constantly. So no one can get any Groove like even if a line is playing decent it's getting flipped up cuz another line is playing bad is finally playing Gary on up and hits for the minutes that they deserve and he's finally letting these guys play like it's been it's been frustrating during the season but you're right as soon as as soon as the playoffs have come he's flipped on a dime and don't everything. I've been asking him to do for the whole season. So I guess I got nothing to complain about but I I really don't want to see his regular season coaching back again next year honestly. Yeah, that's really interesting and another random tangents kind of on subject Washington fired their head coach. It was this morning. I think it might have been this morning or yesterday. I forget which one but Todd Reardon is looking for a job that might be another opportunity for the stars. All right. Well, anyway, we'll leave that we kind of made that to be about Dobby but we kind of went all it is Rick bowness. And yeah, yeah, that's right. That's what makes this project so much fun. ADHD hear people. All right. What was the next thing we were going to talk about penalties? He was oh yeah. Yeah game out there today that was ridiculous. There was like three or four touch Bells like on both teams like total. There was a penalty on birth and cogliano the middle of the 3rd. He literally tapped the guys gloves and they sent him to the Box what a joke. These guys need to go back to Orlando and officiates of NBA games goodness off that being said, there was a terrible Stars penalties too. But oh my gosh these rats were so frustrating 8 to 3 on power plays 8 to 3 that is not closed. I've had five straight power plays in the game and they score on none of them. So the Stars After scoring on the first to their own game today and then played their own gaming the 3rd. And shut them down. So this was complete Stars domination right after the first period after dobey saved him a second if there. The stars were demolishing them in the app should feel embarrassed. You texted me during the game and and we were talking about the penalties and everything and you know, everybody was just really frustrated and then you even said that a lot of the ads fans were sitting there complaining about the fact that a lot of calls were not being made on Star like and then I started playing dirty like, okay. So you've never played a checking team yet the coyotes let you walk all over them these Avalanche fans goodness. I gotta be so spoiled. They've never seen defense I guess and it shows that it makes sense why we're doing so good against them. Where a checking team we For Odom in the regular season and when we're on our game, it seems like we're just going to destroy him. This team is built to kill a team. Like the apps just reminds me actually of the the Stars Blues when we we were a fast-paced team the most exciting team in the NHL and then we hit the blues and Bam we can't go anywhere. They're checking us into the borders. We have no space and that's exactly what we did to the apps day after the 1st. And then we just totally embarrassed them. Well, and I'm glad you mentioned that cuz you I felt like you were reading my mind there cuz I was thinking the exact same thing cuz we were talking about that series a long time ago when that happened and we took like Wireless stores doing so bad. They were like the best team in the league and then we ran into the blues and were like all the blues do. Is there a checking team. That's what they do and they go down into the dirty areas off of the of the offensive zone they go and get the puck. They put it up back up to the point. They shoot it from the point and then they look for dirty disgusting no playoff series and you know, what is playoff hockey and that is how you should win and you know, what now, the script is flipped. We used to be the Colorado Avalanche and now we're full screen cuz we still have that speed and we have that skill. We have Jamie been in that Top Line. Get it done. We have these Young Guns who are fast as anything that can get it done and we've got veterans like pavelski and Corey Perry who can get it done and it's changing every night last night. It was the Top Line. This night is pavelski and The rest of the the rest of the depth, it's just it's an awesome team built by Jim Nill. I think the people who are calling for Jim nill's heads are actually not watching the hockey game and they don't understand the team that's been built. This is a perfect playoff team and I think anyone who doesn't see that just doesn't understand how GM Egg Works at all. And you know what? I wonder if he learned that so after the Lindy Ruff area when it was all run-and-gun score 675 goals every single game. Maybe you learned that he maybe you know, maybe you learn that you know, but and you know, he's thinking like maybe a regular season really good team. Does it mean anything when you get to the playoffs? All you have to do is be in the top eight so you could be the 8th seed you could be the 8th seed and be a good playoff team and still go to the Stanley Cup finals home. So and we've obviously seen that in the past ten years or so just because you're the best team in the NHL does not necessarily mean you go and win the Stanley Cup the stars in nineteen ninety nine were the exceptions but everybody was saying about Tampa Bay that Tampa Bay was a lock for the Cup last year and what happened they got swept in the four by the Columbus Blue Jackets who? Where the 8th seed and we're not expected at all to take that series and it completely busted my bracket by the way last year and Acquisitions Jim Nill made after that playoff series with the blue box. He definitely learned from it. He picks up cogliano like who knows who cogliano is? Why are we getting this random guy from the Ducks picks up Como? Why are we getting Como? He's a nobody from nobody team, but he saw their play. He knows that their Grinders and they're going to fight on the boards and he built one of the I think the best checking line and in the NHL right now the best fourth line anywhere around so I think he completely understood what he was doing when he was building those guys. Those were just oh, I'll get these guys cuz we lost our other guys. He he wanted those guys for this playoff team. They were centerpieces every one of the choices a centerpiece. This is a it's a great team. This is this is making me more and more excited more and more excited just with how this team is built and you know completely off blowing my expectations of what the series was going to happen. And this is looking like a Stanley Cup playoffs, you know, like a Stanley Cup Contender team even more so than I thought during the Calgary series. I thought we got away with the Calgary Series in a way, but I think of anything right now. We just manhandling these Avalanche we are getting on top of them and making someone else other than the top-line scorer and they can't do it. Hey guess what random tangents again? We started with penalties and somehow we ended with handled as checking why Tim Kneeland makes sense. We're in the ball park. I guess we're at the Ballpark with Adobe one, right? No. Hay weight ballpark is the wrong sport Chris Rock and watching the Rangers anymore. Hey guys, the first ten games and it's just say wow. Okay this stuff. Yeah, I'm happy right now. What's up? Talk about sad stuff. Yeah. I know. Yeah. Yeah. Hey we could talk about the Mavs and has it been pretty good t-ball Google Ok off anyways, anyways, so what's next? Oh, yeah. I want to make a quick mention of a stat that stood out to me first things first is cross. The faceoff percentage was completed as obsessed today, which is again very odd. I'm not sure what was up. But I'm sure that will be talked about it tomorrow honestly because of the amount of power plays at the other team had so when they have the power plays they're going to be more aggressive on the. Because they've got to suck face off guys and operatives you were on the PowerPlay 16 minutes tonight so that that would make sense. All right, but the real one. I really want to mention and actually dad pointed it out to me and I'm glad he did cuz otherwise I wouldn't have recognized it but the hits today the hits today and this kind of goes back to what we were talking about a second ago 6229 in hits. Well because he didn't like his rice. Yeah. No, no joke twice as much as the Avalanche and if the Avalanche have any chance of getting back in this series, I think it's going to have to be with physicality. They're going to have to answer with a physicality can't do it. I you know what? That's what happened. And right now they can't play the blues all all those years ago. We were talking about how we need to bring up oleksiak up onto the Deep hair. That was he was the seventh man and that was before faith in the Pittsburgh talk about how we need to bring him up. Just cuz we need some big guys and we were talking about how we can match the physicality and we couldn't do it. So that series it felt like we were scrambling the whole time and I feel like it's going to feel like the same thing for the ABS. They've got no, Room and they're just feeling frustrated that they can't score. That's the exact kind of hockey. That stars want to play. Well and one more stat in blocked shots, 21 two floors defense going at it 21 to 4. If that doesn't tell you what this team about physicality wise first off great goaltending and then also the amount of blocked shots that we had. I'm sure like more than half of those run the 3rd. I could I feel safe in saying that way but This is why I'm I'm I've been never been more optimistic about this team since nineteen ninety nine and just how the that just shows how the team is buying in. You're not going to lay your your leg on the line to block a shot. That's probably not going in if you're not hundred percent on with the team. So all these guys are 100% right? There's no otoko b cup know these guys are going to win that Kovac up and they're going to rub their covid-19 all over it. There was one other thing we were going to talk about you remember what that was Nathan MacKinnon and how he can't stop scoring points. So many car Perry used to be a little puck shove his head into the glass and put his fist in his stupid little patchy beard. And just tell him to stop have you doesn't stop you just get into it again. I'm tired of it. He hasn't had his butt on the ice nearly enough every check against him needs to be finished every single what we might take some slashing penalties against him. I don't care. Stop the man. He's okay. I know we were complaining about how he was mentioned so much in the ABC broadcast, but he is a freaking amazing with hockey player. It's nuts. He is outstanding so we gotta stop him please please. Okay rant over. gatorade's okay. Now it's fantastic. You know, you're a little rant reminded me of that one scene in The Avengers when Hulk is good. Just going crazy and everything and you know, Robert Downey Junior Iron Man puts on the Hulk suit that Iron Man Hulk suit, there's a specific name he gave me but I forgot hey and he just sitting there like with a bunch of punches like sleep go to sleep. Go to sleep. Go to sleep. That's what we need to do a McKinnon except it needs to be like accepting used to be like two or three stars players. They're just going go to sleep. Go to sleep. Go to sleep. Go to sleep. There's a joke ass fans. We don't want to injure him. We just want to make you feel uncomfortable know. Yeah he is and you know, if there's any as fans listening in this podcast, which I highly doubt there is but if you are y'all are so lucky. We haven't had a player like that like Nathan MacKinnon since Mike Modano in my opinion. We have some of that someone that was an amazing dancer. He's a power he was a power forward off. On the The Art Ross, but Nathan MacKinnon is just it's beautiful to watch him play hockey. It's so frustrating. It's it's it's not fair. You know speaking of Corey. There is that one play at the very beginning of the first period where he looked like, you know, twenty two year old lady Cory parry and was I was like whew, I was like police car police car police car off in those both have pretty good games. Yeah, that's fantastic. All right, I think we'll leave it at that. I think that's pretty good. I think so too long or guys. Thank you all for listening this evening. You've been listening to star cast. I can marks the only Stars fan live podcast. This has been Ryan joined by Craig's life.

Don Good afternoon and how fares everything you know. It's going as well as it could. Based on the situation role in US take it day by day. And just do what you can and a little bit of history don and I were Co Voices of the Cincinnati Thunder Junior hockey team when they made the move up to South Metro Sports. Don was the number one play by play guy. I was the number two. That's how I don I know each other. Well let's let's let's not referred yourself was number two because I think you know asked a lot of the people that were listening to the Games that were the the guy. They would've probably preferred to listen to now. Don You've been a voice of so many hockey teams and I hope to get to all of them that you've covered so let's begin. Where are you from originally deer park? Ohio so You know live their ties about five or six and moved out into what's called Anderson. Township grew up there and you know pretty much lived in Cincinnati. Most of my life. I've had a couple of You Know Times where I've moved away. lived in Louisville Kentucky in the late eighties and then came back to Cincinnati started working with the Cincinnati Cyclones. Nineteen Ninety and then I've lived in Greensboro North Carolina Albany New York But each time that I've left gone away always found my way back here to Cincinnati. I was about to ask a wind. Did you know you want it to be a broadcaster of Hockey Nineteen seventy-two Cincinnati swords the American Hockey League were planet to Cincinnati Gardens. What's my first game that year in November I was instantly hooked on the sport started listening to the Games on the radio. Ken Wilson was the Voice of the source. He went on to do the Saint Louis. Blues at did them for twenty years later on the Phoenix coyotes for a little bit but You know that's when I kinda thought that would be the thing to do because I knew know being an American and you know just not growing up with a lot ice around Cincinnati. I mean there is no chance that I was GonNa ever ever play hockey. That would have been the ideal dream to be a hockey player but the next closest thing would have been broadcasting So that was kind of the goal you know to to broadcast hockey and I really wanted to do it in the American hockey. Everybody wanted to do it the NHL but for me The H. L. Was My introduction. The hockey you know I love that league and I was fortunate enough to not only get to do it But the do it for a team here in Cincinnati with the Cincinnati mighty ducks and I know I definitely WanNa talk about the mighty ducks. I remember the radio commercials and Cincinnati Radio when I was a kid and I mean that those were some great teams at the gardens. My next question is how many teams were you. The Voice of I did a little bit of color with the Cincinnati cyclones. It was it was the voice of team when I was working for them. And then With the Carolina monarchs did some helped out with the weekly Radio show that they had but in terms of the actual play-by-play voice would in Cincinnati mighty ducks and the Albany River Rats. How did the mighty ducks and the river? Rats situation come to be. Why WOULD THE CINCINNATI MIGHTY DUCKS? I was working for the Carolina. Monarchs and in fact there had been talk about You know broadcasting the the next year but the Hartford whalers moved to Greensboro and the monarchs got addicted from their lease at the Greensboro Coliseum. So I needed to go somewhere else and as I look around and around that same time the Baltimore bandits of American Hockey League. They were looking for a new place to go Since cyclones at vacated Cincinnati Gardens Guards needed attendant said all came to a came together that way where the Baltimore Franchise was purchased by the Gardens and They had Anaheim as the NHL affiliate and took on the mighty ducks name So you know was an opportunity to come back home and it was an opportunity to work with Anaheim Organization. I had met some of them. You know the GM Jack Ferraro and system GM David mcnabb. You know they had would come to Greensboro when the bandits would play so I was able to know who I was going to beginning involved with. They seem like really good people and it seemed like the right fit at the time. Wasn't the mighty ducks also affiliate with Detroit for a little bit? There was a time. There was three seasons where there was the dual affiliation in Detroit would send eight to ten players and it was You know interesting to see because there was a different way of of you know what the two organizations were trying to. You know doing terms that type of players that they were drafting but the coaching staff. You know they made it work. The first year was nineteen ninety. Nine the nine two thousand six of all math was the coach in the next two years with the Detroit Anaheim Split. It was Mike Babcock coach and the team and you know but it was just interesting work with both organizations in Detroit. Ken Hall of was the General Manager. He's now in Edmonton. Jim Nill was the assistant jam. We would see him a lot and he's now the GM in Dallas and they just you know just terrific people you know longtime groups so it worked out because both organizations you know really worked well together and tencent had those dual billions. You know. It didn't work out very well. I mean that's going to be tough. Balancing not only just the one but two of 'em as well sending athletes to either the red wings or the mighty ducks at the time. You know sometimes you get one or two call by your parent club and that kind of hurts but you could have you know the situations wherein one week you know. Detroit need the call up guys due to injuries and Anaheim to call two guys. Four guys short. So Y- that kind of kept it from from being as good as the team on paper you know look like when you looked at the roster was going to be really good team but just because you know you were getting calls from two different teams. They were always opposite taking your best players You know so. It was kind of hard to field a competitive team. But you know it was just one of those things again. Some tremendous talent that came through both four Detroit. Jerry Fisher was one of the players that kingdom from Detroit. He's one of the best players I ever saw. You know in the American Hockey League and Mannheim Ryan gets lost came through at the end of one of the season's joined team for the playoffs yet. Corey Perry came through and Andy McDonald was another player. Had A pretty long h career so just a lot of talent and You know just to me. It was always unbelievable. Help with the talent level was not only on the mighty ducks but just through the American Hockey League and how few People Cincinnati Number. One knew about it. Remember to appreciated it and that's sad to the. Ahl's the top step before you get to the big show in the NHL and thinking that you were in such a historic hockey rink and you get to see pretty much to stars of tomorrow in Cincinnati. That's that's a little sad. Yeah I mean it was. That was the one thing that I always felt. That was missed during the mighty ducks years was just you know having that opportunity to see a lot of these guys that we're going to go on not only playing. Nhl But play very well and become key players on their teams and you could see the visiting teams come in. And there'd be number one draft picks on the rosters The level was phenomenal. And you know these players twenty twenty one twenty two so you know they were just beginning their careers and it was a great league for them to develop their talent but an opportunity for fans to really you know watch these players before they went onto the NHL but it just seemed like here in Cincinnati. They wanted you know they were more about. You don't have in their fan favorites players that we're GonNa make their homes in Cincinnati and I think some of them You know they. They kind of took it the wrong way that the players wanted to get out of Cincinnati because to get to the NHL so it was just hard. You know it was. It was hard to get the fans to really Stay connected with the team because they were used to with the Cincinnati cyclones the Ihl they could McCain players have those players while year after year. And that's a shame too because the players don't necessarily want out of the town because they don't like Cincinnati. They they WANNA play at the highest level possible. And since they do they do and you know what's interesting about that is And it just to about satanic integrate town. A lot of these players debt went on to play in the NHL. You know they now live here in Cincinnati so I mean. They've made it their home so when they were here they loved it. They loved the people but it just wasn't the NHL where they want to be there was a former NHL or that lived in Cincinnati. I don't know if he's still does blind stockton. He was the head coach at Sycamore for a year or two blinds down still does live in Cincinnati. Keep in touch with Blaine he was with Cincinnati stingers back in the mid seventies one. I was season ticket holder with the what's to the Stinger and he's one of only two players that ever scored fifty goals in both the W. H. A. And the NHL. With Bobby Hall being the other one. That's pretty good company there for blamed but it was kind of you need for me. I was working for the Cincinnati. Cyclones at the time and You know here I am as a teenager watching the singers and I have all these players and then you know nineteen ninety-one you know blamed comes in as an assistant coach and you know now on bus trips and talking to the guy down. The coach's office with them all the time so that was kind of a surreal for me to see these play and then they would be a lot of the players scouts to that. I had watched growing up so to see all these players from my childhood now. Working on the management side and then crossing paths was all them drama hockey days. That was something that was always interesting to me. Now the mighty ducks eventually took off and left the Cincinnati Gardens but. I don't know how many people knew that there were plans to try. Bring in another team. In the railroad there's array of riders. Wanted to. Yeah the real raiders. There was it was the same you know. The Franchise was owned by the gardens. What happened with the mighty ducks is there were teams in Louisville Lexington in the American Hockey League? As soon as they left the leak the mighty ducks run. The clock because sky travel costs just skyrocketed There were no longer the overnight trips or you know the day trips. Were you can leave at four o'clock. Go play the game. You're back home by midnight. Also that there were twelve those trips a year between those two cities and so the the cost of operation really skyrocketed at that point. And when you're flying to these different places you know. It's great for the players that are flying from Anaheim's point of view. They were no longer able to have as much practice time as players in other cities. Were getting if you look at You know when their cities like Albany and lull and Kravitz and Hartford and you know Syracuse Although cities with their road trips are like two hours three hour road trip. They can come back the next morning. And they can on the ice at ten o'clock while when you're leaving and playing in Milwaukee and you get back at you know five or six. Am from game. You can't practice at ten o'clock you can't practice that day so the practice time wasn't there So being development lake practice a huge part of that and for Anaheim For hockey reasons they needed to look to go somewhere else and they found appeal in Portland and then when I was in Albany the next year you know. I saw a lot of these players that have played in Cincinnati on the Portland team in all told me hockey wise. It was better for them because they got lots of rest. Let's practice time. But they really Miss Cincinnati because the city wasn't as good but that's why the mighty ducks left and it was tough to get another NHL affiliate because same situation was going to be there not enough practice time so you know. Although there was interest we were trying to sell season tickets. We've had taken deposits and we need to have two thousand season ticket holders and you know we got to run that fifteen hundred range but time ran else in all the NHL teams the ones that we're looking for different places to go. They at all you know committed elsewhere before we could commit to having that two thousand season tickets that we need financially To make it work to where we could fly to more places and that and it wasn't always going to be you know a six hour bus drives to rides to Milwaukee so after the mighty ducks and the railway tres. What was your next stop? My next stop was the Albany River Rats in the American Hockey League I wanted to stay in the American league. Could and I was fortunate to be able to do that. And I got into another situation with the dual affiliation we had Colorado and we had The Carolina hurricanes where there so You know for me. It was kind of getting reacquainted with the people that booed him out of Greensboro with the wailers seem to the former whalers there that the Carolina Group was You know you know really first class organisation Jim. Rutherford was the general manager. He's now in Pittsburgh pa. Tom was head coach. He's not coaching over in Russia. And you know we had some some pretty players in come through and I really enjoyed my ear. There and media wise was almost like an initial setup for me where we had three papers that covered the team on a daily basis so every practice the beat writers were there after the. Games the four. Tv stations would get the post game interviews and So it was as close as you can get an even better than a lot of NHL cities in terms of how often the media was around the team so I enjoyed it from that perspective. How did you wind up back to Cincinnati and wind up with the Cincinnati Thunder? I was working with the river. Routes you the Albany ownership also own arena. Football was the Albany conquest so we were on a road. Trip and Was in Florida and I'm sitting at the hotel down by the pool. Getting Ready to head over to the for the game and my phone rings and it's a guy named Bill Malphrus to had been the marketing. Pr Manager at Kings Island in the nineteen eighties. Several years he was kind of doing some consulting work with them. You know working through three days a week and it called me up and he just said hey just wanted to run something by you. There is a An opening for PR manager here. You know what? Up Interested in talking to us about what you know grown up on the Kings Island and had done a lot of fun. Things on roller coasters net there in the nineteen eighties. And I'd always outside of Sports. You know the other thing always wanted to try was to be a PR person in the theme park industry. You know so I told bill that It certainly be interested in talking about it. You know but it was one of those things for me. I liked what I was doing with the river. Rats I was treated really well. There by both ownership The staff and the fans you know so. I wasn't in a hurry to go anywhere. My wife and daughter you know like the city. My daughter absolute local school system that she was at so there wasn't any urgency to get back to Cincinnati. But I looked at it as nothing ventured nothing gained type of scenario so I came back into town was father's Day weekend and Interviewed for the job in a couple days later they called up and said we'd like to offer it to you so You know having with them with pro hockey especially at the minor pro level. There's there's not the best stability sometimes so at the time you know with a wife and a eleven year old daughter you know. I knew that kings island wasn't aluminum. Nossa wasn't one of those things that we would keep moving every two or three years so it was an opportunity to come back home. You know do something that I had always kinda wanted to do. And you know the when those things like hockey was fortunate to do it my hometown. I was able to do what I wanted to do. In the amusement theme park also in my hometown now this is something that. I don't think a lot of people get to interview have but you're in the Guinness World Book of Records and does have to do of Kings Island What was it about it? It's a was riding roller coaster. The Racer Kings Island. It was the first roller coaster road nineteen seventy-two my cousin. I was afraid of them. Mike my Cousin I The park was opened and he said come on. I'll give you fifty cents. Well that was big money for me back then because that's what I got each week. We're taking out the trash and cutting front yard at my house. So I was like fifty cents. Okay can buy a hotdog or something with that here so I wrote it and vastly love the Ryan. So I ended up writing at like nine times that day. But nineteen eighty-one. I get a season pass to the park at this time. I'm working as a novelty under at had some bengals games It was a fun. You know fun job to have and they went on. They went on strike in nineteen eighty one. While the day they went on strike was the first day I use my season pass and there was this girl that worked on. The racer ahead graduated with few weeks earlier was Dan and You know I was just riding the right a few times and I asked her. What was the the one day record you know? She found out that it was ninety six so I tried to get that not knowing how the lines and stuff worked and I would come back and a couple of later came back a couple of next thing you know. I've got four or five hundred dollars on this so went from trying to get the one day record so well. Maybe I'd get a thousand rights and before the strike ins and I did you know the strike ended on August ninth and I got the ride on August fourteenth by one thousand nine hundred eighty one. So it's just a fun way to occupy my time. You know just having some fun. I didn't WANNA start in Okla- find another job and then have to leave. You know week to later because the strike ended so I was just biding my time But it was just kind of a fun thing to do and the next year was like well. Maybe I get two thousand rights on it extra. Maybe you know the three thousand and five thousand and it just kind of evolved from there was nothing really planned out it just kind of happened and then from nine hundred one thousand nine hundred ninety. I had ten thousand rights on that race. I did ended up breaking the one day record twice so I had one hundred eleven hundred twelve right days on it So I did. What my original idea was to along the way but It was just something that was fun. I loved you know. The theme park industry in Love rollercoasters. was just the way to have fun. I did other things on was up in the East right. Watch the shows and and Right all the other rights too but it was just you know to me it was I. It started becoming perfect way to to do things where I would spend my summers in the evenings and add up at the Kings Island and then you know in the winter. You know you're watching hockey or you know then started working for hockey teams so it just a fun. You Know Combination. They're important question here forward racer or backwards racer. I always liked the forward side like the backwards. Why backwards was unique and I remember eighteen when the PR department at the Park? They called me said. Hey we're going to be trying to sit spearmint thing. Can you come out Thursday for this Media Day thing? We're going to grant one side of the racism backwards now. I had written on the racer in the backseat. Night turned around and watched from that backwards perspective. I had an idea what was going to be like. It was unique and you know the first couple of years with it But for me the novelty had kinda worn off. You know three or four years into it. You Know Silence. Preferred the the forward side So back in two thousand eight when both sides were turned to both running forward and I was okay with that because I remembered growing up with it that way. So it's depends. I think when you talk to people they wrote it from seventy to eighty one. They like it now that it's back to what it was but if their first entered into the race you're was once. I was backwards. They missed a backward side. Yeah that I think that's why I like the backwards side to but if you think about a two forwards I mean that's the racer you know. Yeah exactly exactly what that but no I always had a fun time with it and you know I still you know ride it. I don't You know before we'll be ready. Twenty thirty forty fifty times in one day anymore but You know if I have time you know in those. Tom Don't WanNa take a ride on the ranks. Terrell still do that with whatever rights. Did you enjoy back back then? What other rides the beast you know for sure that to me. That's even though the racers you know the one I did the record on and if I had to pick one right. It's my favorite ride. The Best I would say the beast. You know it's to me. It's the best wooden roller coaster that's ever been built Nothing else like it. You know the length of the ride in at the speed of the right for wooden roller coaster spin out in the woods on silent right that every day. I like the carousel. You know. I think that that's kind of to me You know like the heartbeat. Amusement Park in is that carousel that atmosphere kind of ride the train. You know. I'm a big Fan of the at Kings Island. One of the first big rides that I remember going on you know when when Kings Island I open. You know was that train. Here's this big massive locomotive So I think for a lot of little kids the first right big right that they go on so you know. I always enjoyed the train and then there was a right. Flying Equals You know you can kind of make your own experience on that so I would write that a lot but You know there wasn't a right that they didn't like I would write everything and this is before paramount came in. And you're right. Yeah yeah this was in the nineteen eighty eighty one to ninety. I was there at least five days a week in sometimes seven just around work schedule that but at least five days a week and then I would average over fifteen writes a day on the race in over that period did average out to be like fifteen point two ride today and that was always statistically sports fan go up attracted to statistics so I probably started keeping track was just. I just wanted to see how many visit sight make and how many rods in what my average rights per day would be on each total rides astride that right so being statistically inclined. You know that's what motivated me to keep tropical. I hadn't been a big sports and I never would even started keeping track. I was GONNA ask. What was the major difference when paramount came over and they ran the park for A while loves the difference between paramount. And you know the previous ownership that they wanted to It was a way to market. You know the movies became more about that than the actual park experiences. You know the things that were icon to kings island you know or getting push more in the background and it was more about. You know what's the next? What's the next movie we? Can you know promote so rather being named like top gun? You know things like that so it was just a different atmosphere kind of change. A little bit of became more of that that. Feel that You you know it was more commercialized. Like there was face off which is by the entrance to the park. That was Faceoff Croft experience or something like that Tomb. Raider the ride you know. They did a good job with that. I mean it was all you know well done in that. But you know I was used to how it was in the seventies eighties. And then you start to switch towards becoming more of these teams on that so it just changed a little bit you know for me the you know the atmosphere of it but the right experience itself is still the same talking about changes from your youth India Park and bouncing to Anderson Township. What's changed in the Queen City? Just the size of it. I can remember when they're when there wasn't a connection between couldn't get to kings island on seventy five from Anderson Township in just that kind of thing you know the the beach. Montevideo you know that was one lane on each side Tyler's railroad up. All you get toward you know maysonet kings island was a two lane so I think the size of it you know as as been what's what's changed a lot that I would say just just grow with you know. There's all these businesses. Now you know out in Anderson Township Beach Avenue. And that wasn't the case before you know so it's become like a mini tri county. You know throw through Anderson Township. Now it really. Has I think the biggest change though. And if you're a hockey fan listening list it's GonNa break your heart again. The gardens being demolished. Yeah Yeah you know I. I think that's the first hockey game I ever saw. Was there worked off the different teams. There it would be a total of fourteen years that I that I worked at Cincinnati Gardens You special place in my heart always will met my wife there and Cincinnati Gardens But I I've always believed though that You know you always respect history revere it and sometimes you know have to move on and and you know things don't stay forever. It didn't have a tenant anymore. It was tough for the ownership of the gardens to keep it going So they didn't really have much of a choice at that. Point wasn't likely to to be able to attract the attendance because what the arenas today you know. What what everybody's looking for. It didn't have all his amenities so it was going to be very tough to do that or looking trying to bring in know different rates and things. It didn't have you know the kind of things that you know. Either the capacity or you know the dressing room set up. The sounds images had a lot of things that weren't there you know that. Were great in the fifties sixties and seventies and eighties. But what people needed today to make it work. You know it. It just wasn't there anymore so you know it was very sad to see it come down but I understood it at least did save Some the pieces. I think the like stone statues they had in the building. I think that went to savior and I think the letters of Cincinnati Gardens went to the signed museum. Yeah they did So they they did save some parts of it. I was a little surprised that you now quickly When the when the ownership changed hands that locked it up and started. Just you know ripping things out. If that's be a little more time it would have a better kind of sendoff. Didn't really obvious standoff. You know that it deserved when you look at the history of it. And the Cincinnati Royals and Oscar Robertson play. There as of Charles was a boxer and he was there the Beatles played there. There was just so much history that you thought that it would have. You know at least deserves some kind of a send off but that you know and that didn't happen so that was that was sad as well but I did have the distinction of being the last Non Employees the the last billion that was inside the guards and that wasn't by design. I I went when I heard it was being sold and was changing hands. I went to go see some of the people that were still working there and You know just walked around for a couple of hours and then I left in. I got home and I had a message. Facebook MESSENGER that. Hey you'll be the last person that does it. The new came in and just padlocked everything in or kicked out so I. I was considered the last person to walk the halls of guards from civilian point of view. I try not to get angry about things. But it's still I don't think the actual demolition of the gardens set me off is just you know up while everything's locked in we're guy bulldoze it for yeah exactly like said it should had a send off and it didn't. Yeah I mean I don't think the NBA's coming back Cincinnati. I mean for very long time. If ever I mean an Oscar Robertson he was Cincinnati. I mean and the rooms were good for a good long time to and there's great hockey there The MOHAWKS play there. I think they want a couple of your they want five Turner Cup Championships in a row. I was GONNA say cleanup playoffs and I don't know why I thought I think. I'm thinking the Milwaukee Clarks but main the Mohawks were good swords stingers mean all the his through that building in the you know in the early nineties when they first came to town that became a toughest ticket in the city to get. I mean we I work for them. Fifth person they hired back in nineteen ninety and I worked for them for six seasons in those first two years. We're really special. Midway through that first season you know it really took off and all of a sudden you know. We were selling out every night. Ten thousand plus the next year thirty two home games. Twenty six hundred ten thousand plus standing remotely so I learned a lot of what I know today about You know marketing promotions at one of the three original cyclones owner. Something was wrong fuller. He had Been involved in the wrestling business Both as a wrestler in the later a promoter and just that guy was a genius and just to be able to be around that for the four years he was involved with the franchise and the things that I learned from him. I mean you could work. You know thirty forty years in the marketing industry and not pick up what I did just having him. Every day you know and I was like a sponge absorbing all the information and in what he did work in a we were packing back gardens and when he left you know the attendant started to go down so I mean he. He was every other people got the credit. But Ron was that the promotional brains behind the cyclones in those early years he got the butts in the seats for the first the first version of the cyclones. Yeah exactly and it. Was you know that was one of my jobs was to Contact the media and you know throughout the week to tell how many tickets we had left and I would say we're down the fifteen hundred next Ed Paul. We got seven or next echo. Where three hundred call. Game Day and say we're sold out. You know so that was one of my primary roles was to give the updates the medium you tickets. We had left learned one thousand nine hundred ninety two season. What's besides the venue and league? What's the major differences between the cyclones? Back then and today since cyclones which play downtown well for the level number. One the caliber play. You know the E. C. H. L. Then was the league. Nobody really wanted to play. And it was a place played a few had nowhere else to go so the cholera plague. Much much better. You didn't see anybody that You know was on an NHL contract Hartley in the H. L. Those first two years now. There are several players on H. L. teams that were drafted in the NHL team. You know believes that. They're gonNA play for him someday. So you definitely you know the depth as much better you know the back then your second line in the show probably couldn't play in these H. L. of cut. But you know it just that much difference. Just the depth in the players are different with it. I think the The fans going to the game or a little bit more different. You're seeing more families now. Today at the Cyclones Games they knew did back in the early nineties at Cincinnati Gardens and it was pretty much you know. A college crowd was going to the game back in the Early Gardens Days. You know so now. You're seeing a lot more. You know more families that that go to the Games than the obviously the venues or going to be different there. You do more things at You know where. The cyclones a plan right. Now you know with with just the you know yet the video scoreboard and you can do more with the putting on a show and more with the entertainment and those kind of things now. I know the cyclones They have a lot of family. Deals like you mentioned and law deals to get younger kids into the sport and recently. They signed a partnership with N. Y. Y H A. I couldn't think of the letters from there but they signed a deal where the junior. Cyclones are coming back for youth hockey. What were some of the promotions like four cyclones? One Point Oh well the first version of it. I mean we had you know were the Bikini Nights and there. Were you know the dollar blue nights and you know a lot of those. You know kind of promotions Know deter traditional wants to you know the puck nights and the hat nights t shirt nights But the one thing that you know if I look back that we did not do is we would have ten thousand people you know it's all about entertainment was around full was working but it was It was a night of entertainment. Oh by the will those hockey England one on so one of the things that we did not do this first couple of years while we did not. We weren't getting enough people hooked on actually hockey. It was the night of entertainment part and I think that's what today. Cyclones do very well as they do. Make that effort to to be working more with the youth hockey community and and developing hockey fans. Where you know for us back. Then you know that wasn't the priority to develop hops. It was you know or entertainment. You know we'll just do whatever we can the building and I also like the cyclones of today they have a special hockey team sled hockey teams and they reach out. I think that's really well. Yeah so I mean I think you know it'd be nice if you took the best of both you know what the cyclone I did. And you did what The cycling's are doing today. And then you'd really have something special now someone that seen a lot of hockey especially in Cincinnati Ohio USA. What does change from your first day with the microphone till today? I think just the you know what's changed for almost symphony sense of it is just that You know hockey has been around now for a long time and you know this more people that have been exposed to it. This is about the game You know one of the differences. I noticed like when I went to Albany was on our weekly radio. Show fans would call up and they'd be complaining about the power play. You know those kind of things where that never happened. You know when I was doing the mighty ducks games You know you didn't get the actual hockey question. You know questioning the strategy or anything like that and I didn't Albany where I think now fans are more. They're getting more into that to where done standing in the game better. It's now been here. You know pretty much now every year for the past thirty years. That's pretty good. Run between the different versions of the cyclones and the might dots So there's been enough exposure to. It's you do have that core of a fan. I think that's one of the things that synthetic does not get credit for is there is that you know core of hockey fans. There's there's maybe ten thousand They don't go to every game. But there's that nice solid core you could build from the NHL. We came here. You know but I think that's just the thing that there's there's more there's been more development of the the knowledgeable hockey fan. Do you ever see a venue? Like Cincinnati Gardens being built in Cincinnati. I don't unfortunately because they're thinking the time to change to where any venues that are being built today. You know it's all about the you know the the corporate community and the luxury seats The luxury suites club seats. You know those kind of things where in the actual fans are always them in the upper lot of arenas they they. Don't get close to the ice anymore. So I think that's the one thing that Steph link changed over the last thirty years as a you know if there was a new venue built or whatever it pushes and it works the same way you know for baseball or you know other sports to where the the die hard fan you know. They get pushed higher up in the in the in the seating around the arena. Because it's all about the corporate you know the the corporate sponsor in the club seats in those kind of things The people dispersed item and attainment. They're all sitting in those seats. Close do you ever see something not like Cincinnati Gardens but another hockey venue being built around society? I do I do think you know I can see that You know you look at the Reno. Where the cyclones playwright and everybody thinks it's a young younger you know a young arena because it was in comparison to the gardens which had been built in one thousand nine hundred eighty nine and not open But Cincinnati cyclones arena. That's forty five years old. You know that opened late. Seventy four seventy five. So it's not young. You know so I do think that there there. There will come a day in the foreseeable future where there is a new arena. Built and hockey will be played. There do you see Heritage Bank center getting renovations or do you see a brand new building taking its place include. If there's a new venue that it would be refurbished where the haired spank center is I think the the best option if you can. You know refurbish it you do. You know because you right there. You don't have to go with the land or anything so I think that would be. You know the first thing that you'd want to do and that's what they're doing out Seattle with the NHL expansion team they're gonNa get you know it's not a new plot of land where the building this arena. They're taken an old one and just kind of redoing it to take it up to today's standards so I think that's that would be the the first thing that I would think it would probably would happen as it would be. The current arena would be refurbished and redone have downtime for about a year or so you know eighteen months or whatever nothing would be going on in there But I I think that would be though. That's the the least expensive route to go is to to just refurbish what you have now. In Columbus they have the chillers around the northern quadrant of the city and Location Downtown Indianapolis has the fuel tank. I think that's what's called Do you ever see Cincinnati getting something like that or they build multiple rinks for like High School Hockey Youth Hockey adult hockey. Do you ever see that happening. I do see that happening. You know what you need. Is You need someone. The champ on that person who wants to champion. It needs to have some deep pockets. But I do. Somebody will emerge at some point and that will happen. I'd love to see that happen. Because the chillers in Columbus or nice especially they are the chiller north in Lewis Center. Were all the Ulan. Tanzi highschools play hockey. They just put in a third rink. And they'RE GONNA. Redo all the lighting systems where it's much brighter. And it's it's something I hope does happen in Cincinnati. 'cause I've right now there's two rinks that service high school hockey and they're both about a mile part on forty two so once the hills department store so yeah exactly played lots of men's league games and both those facilities but I you know I think you know it. I think it will happen down the road you know again. You just need somebody that's going to you know champion that kind of thing. That has some money or they have people that they know that. Have some money to want to get those projects going you know it always helps when in Columbus we have NHL team. You know because there's going to be much stronger interest in hockey but You know you look at Indianapolis Same Level as cyclone so You know you say why not. Why can't happen in Cincinnati? Exactly it'd be it'd be the perfect place and if the fuel can do it in the H. L. I think the cyclones would be able to as well but my next question is going back to your hockey broadcasting career who were been some of your favorite players and coaches and people. You got to work with in that time. Bradshaw is a head coach. He was the head coach. Cincinnati mighty ducks. He's an assistant coach with the Blue Jackets right now and I always amazed that he does not get opportunities to More opportunity to interview for head coaching job in the NHL. I think part of that is on. Brad's not a self promoter. but He's a phenomenal coach One of the best people that I was around so From a coaching point in others. Bradshaw Mike Babcock You know we had the situation with him with the Maple leafs this. This past season but You know at the time I was with him in. Cincinnati treated me. You know my family very well so ill Mike. You know up there on that list Tommaso in Albany old school you know guy. He was the first American the square more than thirty goals in a season in the NHL when he was at the Washington capitals. You know so so. I enjoyed working with him. Identity a was the first cyclones head. Coach Fun guy to be around so those are the guys that You know most memorable to me from the coach and Pointed out from player perspective. Other just you know so. Many of them There was a guy named Craig Ferguson. When I was with the the Carolina monarchs you know. Just a really really good guy you know. He got one of those of things. He understood it Zenon Konopka with the ducks. He stands out About the most talented guy kind of scrappy player No one ever thought he'd play in the. Hov Did no one thought it'd be good enough to play American league. He did not want to play. Nhl He did But just from a community you know point of view He came up to me the first day of when he got assigned Cincinnati and the two thousand four or five citizens and he said. I want to You know be the guy that you go to for all these community appearances know. Do whatever you want you hear that a lot but a few of them stay true to that all the time but you know he did and one of the funny stories about Zen is He was going to visit children's hospital so he he was there and he took a couple of players with them. And I get this call and the middle of the afternoon. It's Children's Hospital and they say we WanNa talk to you about the player you sent over here today. Zenit cap on an Guy. What do you do you know that he's throwing language what happened here? You know what I said He was everything. Okay she goes. Oh yeah everything's okay. And she said he was supposed to be here for an hour and a half and he's been here for four hours she goes the the kids need to settle down. He's got all wired up and everything you know. They need to get back in their rooms and But it was just things like that that you know. He made an impression on me because he did it for the right reasons. He understood You know that You know other players you know after practice you know. They didn't want to do the appearances. Necessarily maybe they wanted to go to the mall. You know or whatever you know his thing would always be you guys go to the mall. That's not going to be there tomorrow. I'm GonNa go see these kids. You know who might not be there tomorrow so. He was a very positive influence on a lot of players. Getting Damn to come see what he was doing. So that made my job much easier when you have a guy like that that You can take other players and kind of encourage them to do what he's doing You know we have other players to you. Know like You know John Sebastian trickier. He was but the mighty ducks when they went to the Stanley Cup final. They didn't win but they lost in seven games to the New Jersey devils but He's one of the players Andy. Mcdonald's Ryan gets laugh Cory Pecker that played here for a little bit. You know he was a fun guy. Corey Perry You know there was just a lot of you know just so many of them that came through Joffrey Lupul. Michael Holmquest was the guy with the ducks You Know Damn Bosma was a player. Who's first year? He came to Cincinnati mighty ducks the next year. The last year the ducks he was an assistant coach. He went on to coach to Pittsburgh Penguins. Let him to a Stanley Cup. He's now in. Detroit is assistant coach. You know just a phenomenal guy to be around. So they're just I mean I could list over hundred of them. How about some of your favorite games and your time favorite game. Most memorable game would've been in the two thousand four zero five season Cincinnati Mighty. Ducks rallied from a three games to one deficit. Against Milwaukee and the the admirals at one that called cup here before. So it's a game seven in Milwaukee the ducts skate out to a three nothing lead. Milwaukee ties it in the second year. They always say that. You know the three stores when the having hockey so it looks like there's going to be over time and With thirteen seconds to go in the Game Mark Popovic just flips one in from the Blue Line in this little in a little rishaad flutters toward to go. It goes by Brian. Finley the ducks win the game and advanced onto the next round. They eliminate the walkie. So that would get the most memorable gone that stands out to me from the mighty ducks era. Is there a game in that era? Where it's six of you in the wrong way. Like it's a heartbreaking loss for the ducks the next round against the Chicago Wolves They they lost that series in five games. And just as I'm on the broadcast you know talking in. You're seeing the players after they do the handshakes skating off the ice. You know that there's not GonNa be another mighty ducks came the next year. You know there is no next season for the Cincinnati. Mighty ducks bad about heartbreaking. It was you know at the time and You know you're hopeful that another teams we're GONNA wind another NHL Fallacious. And you're going to be able to keep it going but it was just a special group in the two thousand and four zero five season and You know just to watch it. You know you're so emotionally involved when you're the broadcaster Newark team near there from day one with the organization just to see that You know it's over dislike. Thought it's over as the guys were skating and I can still picture them. You know almost going down the line and you know to skating. Awesome I remember Curtis Glenn Cross-court the Mighty Ducks Co shorthanded goal in that game. So that that stands out. I think you know going about the cycle The first game back in nineteen ninety against the Roanoke Valley rebels. And that's out to me because Thought I'd see a pro hockey game. You know after the sorts left at Cincinnati Gardens again so to see that comeback around and be a part of it You know that that was a special feeling to personally for me. I have a story similar to that. It was the Dayton demons Because I was play-by-play voice for three years. The third year We fell in the semifinal game in the best of three to the. Danville and I just have this feeling that. We're not GONNA have demons hockey next year. I wasn't official quite yet. I mean there's rumors saying the owners going to pack them up a move to Port Huron Michigan which he did but I just remember seeing that last game winning goal with about forty some seconds left and I just start thinking. We're not GONNA have demons hockey next year and you know all those guys aren't going to be you know in Dayton. I mean we got team for one more year at Harrow. And then they folded hair closed up than that. Big Tornado hit about a year ago. So yeah that's that's not fun when you know that There's not hockey tax year. No and then I had another situation cyclones. And on one of the first people that were held the nineteen ninety and then the ninety five ninety six season you know as they get ready to start to play. Offs and opportunity came up with the Carolina. Monarchs and the Florida Panthers Head coach been with the Cincinnati Cyclones's the NHL affiliate for a couple of years. But they had moved on to the American Hockey Greensboro. A number of the players had gone there Head coach was rich Com. We've been an assistant. Cincinnati Chuck Fletcher. Was the assistant. Jim in Florida that to know Hammer. Wealth cyclone hairs Brian. Murray was the GM an so. I was kind of excited about that opportunity. And you know I had an interview setup but they said we'll get them with the playoffs so cyclones beat Kalamazoo when they beat the when the next round now than the conference finals. So at this goes from the newspaper. We'll talk to you in the In the series with the Orlando and Cyclones lost game seven. And after that game you know I just kind of sat you know after everything was done with the post game interviews and that just went and I sat in the seat you know that I watched my first ever hockey game. There you know at the gardens and and you know section twenty and Just kind of sat there for like twenty thirty minutes. Because I'm thinking okay if I interview get this job. The last time I'm going to see gain here maybe you know so That was a different perspective to with it and I didn't know if they were going to wait for me. I thought you know. Whenever two months later they rally filled the job. But the next morning of my office and Brian Mckenna H. Commissioner Later on was the general manager of the Carolina Monarchs and he calls me sorry Betcha last last night. Can we get on a flight tomorrow? Come out and talk to us so But that was another one of those memories just the infamy with the cyclones because I had six wonderful years there and knowing that You know it was time to move on. You know to try something. I wanted to try the American Hockey League So was it was kind of one of those memories for me that I remember more about that. Last in a couple of playoff games that series and then that final game. I do a lot of the the six years with the team counting hockey. What some of your favorite things about sports in Cincinnati? I think you know for me. I I like the some of it's for the reds. It's the tradition. You know you know baseball's first team To memories you know that I had watching the big red machine in the seventies But you know big Bengal Fan. You know so. I've been going to their games for years. And so it's just you know as a Cincinnati Sports Fan. I think it's just you know just growing up supporting the teams And just having that become a big part of Your Life. You know if it's for me it's not it's not very deep it's been always Baseball football hockey and amusement parks. You know there's not too much more depth than that so For me that's what it's always you know since I sports seemed just how woven into my life you know the fabric of my life that these things are another thing. I don't think I'll be able to interview Anyone else asked about this. You have your very own day kings island yes don helbig day. Yeah that was I think. Back in two thousand four. It was my one thousand visit season pass holder to kings island. You know that had done the the the roller coaster thing in eighties and then I was approaching. The one thousand visits the marketing department. You know became aware of that and said you know. Kinda hold off. We want to kind of make a little special deal out of this So can you do it on? This date was July Twenty Second. You know so can you? Can you hold off on visiting a you know as frequently as you do in time out and do it that day so? I got there that morning you know. They had the big red carpet out. Everything that You know That I walked down with my wife and daughter and You know they they gave us a bunch of you. Know little gifts and things but That was kind of fun. You know totally unexpected. It just was one of those things that happened here if you go somewhere lot. You're going to have numbers on something right so it was a it was one of those things that You know it's kind of neat and then you know two years later on their you know working as the the person to the park staying with kings island. Can you ever picture like a sports exhibition? Ever happening at kings island like something. I don't know like an exhibition in any sport You know it's possible to have those kind of things we've had some things close to that We had Robbie knievel motorcycle. Jump set a world record back in two thousand eight. That was one of my first big projects that I worked on their We Nicoletta did a high wire walk from the front of the where the International Restaurant is over that over the fountains To the top of the Naipul towers he was walking on this wire. That's no whiter than a nickel Two hundred sixty feet above the ground little nerve wracking watching that and you're the PR person for the park. Knowing something happens you know how many calls you'RE GONNA GET RIGHT. So that's always that's always a little nerve wracking but those are kind of you. Things that close to the sports type things we've had we've had some of the gaming You know the Gamers have come out and have had their own event there. There's been different things like that but Yeah I think there's an opportunity down the road to do some kind of sports events and things there now. If you up to Sandusky with Cedar Point. They've now book built a Sports Complex there so they have all kinds of You Know There's Baseball Tournament Softball Tournaments Basketball tournaments you know. So they've they've got a great setup and Anytime anybody that you know. That's listening to podcasts. If you're up in that Sandusky area no check out the sports center that has been built up there by Cedar Point. You know it. It's fantastic. I don't know that there's a better facility anywhere. Someone's going to find you sports. You know you can talk about you. Know what's down at Disney you know when they have all their tournaments and things down there at the sports complex down there but this is you know first class you know. I think it's just phenomenal Facility in it's only been open for a little over a year now. I think that'd be pretty huge kings island. I mean it would be yes. There's already great sports and Southwest Ohio. And you have. I mean you got that tennis venue. That's home to State Championships Fallen spring I mean. I think it work in Kings Island. Great to have all this. You look at it. Now when kings island opened in the seventies The golf course across the street was owned by Kings on the tennis facility owned by Kings Island. They had their own campground. They had their own hotel. you know. Say it was a complete. Both sides of the street was all you know. Owned by Kings Island in his years went on with tarmac. Reopen that in a soul out of that off but but yeah it'd be nice to to have a lot of those different things happening and You know if you had a place where the sports teams could play. Not You know that the kids are certainly going to want to go. You know. -Sconsin time at Kings island neither before the game after. Don How is this virus affected your jobs? Well been working at home. You know since the late. March with I'm still able to do a lot of the things that would have done in the office. It's just a different way of doing it. But now we're not point to where the season you know we would have been open So you know we're no different than what the Ritz in are going through all the baseball fans and you know it's it's tough for everybody you know it's a it's you know throughout the country. Everybody's going through it and Was No playbook for this. No playbook so You Know He. It changes day by day. You know. There's there's no way you can come out and say this when you know can open or anything like that. 'cause you don't know with that so just a lot of unknowns. I think that's been the biggest the biggest thing is just all the unknowns But you know you still proceed and try to go about it. The best you can and one of the things that have been doing like the Kings Island blog is. There's a lot of you know keeping people entertained with virtual rights and Park history we've been able to keep our audience engaged with that but You know you certainly wish it was different But at the reality situation is it's not so you just adapt and try to take it the best you can day by day and then there will come a point The park will open again and everybody will get back to having fun and You know the way that new normal for a little while and then eventually it all comes back and then you know. Hopefully everything comes back stronger than ever. I'm hoping but I will make a comment about what kings island did for season ticket. Holders Free Season Tickets for twenty twenty one if you already have your twenty twenty Passing so I think that was really nice I can do. Yeah that was You know a nice gesture I think you know when it first started nobody knew how long would you know go? We knew for sure you know that it was. You know that first couple of weekends but as you get into you know the end of April and there's still no sign of anything You know it's the right thing to do is to is to give your you know your pass. Holders you know a lot of them have been pass holders. You Know Ten fifteen twenty thirty years. You know some of them. So it's it's the right way to reward them for their loyalty during this difficult time. Don You mentioned A lot of hockey. And you also mentioned the present indoor football team in Albany when you were with the river rats Is there any other sport that you WanNa try broadcasting before you hang up? The set baseball would have been fun. You know I would. I would have liked done baseball That would that would have been That third sports so growing up it was either you know hockey was the priority of baseball would have been second and then you know football would have been the third one to broadcast so never got the chance to do baseball But I can't complain when I look back on it. You know when when you know I'm nineteen years old and I'm thinking I wanna either. You know the broadcast or work in the amusement theme park industry in a few years later when I discovered that part of it You know I got to do do both and so I can't complain. I you know I can say without hesitation over the last thirty years. No one's than have for those folks that are listening if they want to be in the PR field or broadcasting field. What advice can you give? Well I think if you want to do the PR thing. I would you know it's Kinda Change. It's evolved on on help. You know ours done nowadays. You really need to do press releases you can do so much of that now through social media. You don't have to bag the media You can become the meeting yourself. You know with with The days of the Dayton Daily News balloon choir I used to do the printing press. The printing press today is facebook. Instagram twitter thrown blogs using your own website driving traffic there. So I would say if you if you're trying to get into PR focus on the digital side of it. You know learned as much as you can about the the social media piece of it Because that's now where a lot of that communications going out. So so willy become as well-versed as you can and all those different platforms in learn how to do things with know a blog and you know what you're trying to do with that in terms of becoming the media of yourself if you want to be a broadcaster you know you just have to. It's a it's a tough tough Industry to get into But if you stay with it you know that's the key part you know you just gotTa stick with it. That can't happen for you you know. There's a lot of you know you'll see a lot of broadcasters that are pretty well known today you know. They spent ten fifteen years really trying to break in before they finally do The reds new broadcast or the show. That's replacing Marty Brennaman Tommy throw you know. He spent a long time. You know in the in the AA level before he ever got the shot you know to start doing some reds games so you just gotTa stick with enough you want to be a broadcaster and try to broadcast as many things as you can you know. Don't turn down any opportunities you know. There's an opportunity some high school sports do it. There's an opportunity to do Some college sports do it. You know that's the thing you just need that repetition to be calling games you know at the end of the day doesn't if it's a high school game on college the NFL. It's still with all right or it's still baseball you know so. You're still calling the same game. It's just different levels now. The next two questions I have for you are based on. Here's unlimited money We'll stick with the sports side. I if I gave you all the money in the world to build a hockey rink in Cincinnati. Where exactly are you building this? What do you have included? And why where am I gonNA build it? That's a that is a phenomenal question. with that. I would think for Cincinnati. I would go somewhere down what they were looking to before with the reds down Broadway Commons area for some space down there. You know We have like Mount Adams. In the background in that area Do it down there for for an arena the put it there Cincinnati. Okay and I think I would want it to. I would want it to be I would I would some of the best take the best from some of the you know the NHL Arenas out there. Today you fill that go to Columbus. I'd look and see you know the Florida panthers have a tremendous arena. Go to those places in just pull the best elements from those and put it into your design. Now I give you the same amount of money for your very own ride. At kings island it can be rollercoaster. It could be anything. What do I think I think you know? We're going to be able to debut that right here sooner soon. What the new Orion rollercoaster. I think. That's that's what I would do. You know with with that kind of right. I think it's something that It's you know it's got the height where you're gonNA drop three hundred feet. It's got the speed ninety one miles an hour. It's got the link. There were fifty one hundred feet. It's got lots of you know hills. It's two something like that is what I would do. I think my big thing is You know I'm big on rights repeatable. So the more the bigger in the more intense you make it. The less people are going to. WanNa write it repeatedly. You want somebody that gets off the ride. They want to get back in line and write it again. So I think anyone that went to kings island when it does open and Ryan. That's the kind of ride I would build. I think I said this before. We started the interview but Chick. Ludwig says hi he also wants to ride the Orion with you womack. That happened for chick you know. We'll make that happen. Also wants to be the voice of the Haunted House too but mean he would be phenomenal that he really would. You know a great guy. I got to know him. You know When he was covering the Bengals for the Dayton Daily News and I always appreciated him in the in the post game press conference. He'd ask the questions that a lot of you know others might not ask. He wasn't afraid to ask harder questions. Although if you do need a second voice for the hot hotel you know I I can do a good spooky one. Yeah you could you writing with that. Yeah now how can people follow your work and you on social media? Well They WanNa follow me the best way to do it the twitter and it's just simply don held you know. Don DON DEAL IN H E L P G at twitter DOT com. That would be the best way to follow me on social media also on instagram. I don't do a lot of the crazy things you know not doing. Tiktok or anything like that women entertain people that way And then the other way to follow me though to the Kings Island blog I usually put out four or five different blogs a week Try to cover the park as as the media would so if you go to the Kings on the website of visit kings island dot com check out the blog and you can also see my twitter address right. There was well but Yeah those are the those are the best ways to follow me. I really appreciate the time you've given me today and I miss working with you with the hockey team but that was a fun time. Fun Time it really was. I mean for me. It was an opportunity I had done games rated. I can't use them in her. Had a chance to come back and do some thunder games and it was a way to stay in touch with hockey But also get to meet the other really good people such as yourself. I mean it's some I didn't really get to touch up on This interview Just the thunder just how much the sport itself is the same. But how different is juniors from the pros? I started the do the Games. It was tough because the You know the speed of the game was a lot not as fast you know the the plays you know you didn't have the they know the of Chris Passes Plate really. I'll say that surprise me You know and it was. It was You know better I thought it would but it took a little bit of time to get used to You know because when you're doing the American league in that you can kind of Read the play. What's going to happen? And you know from watching practices and stuff you know what the guys are. GonNa look to the tendencies you you do. Eighty Games year. You know especially your own team. You know what these guys tend to do in every situation and that helps you. Call the game because you can. You can forecast what's about to happen here that you stand top of the play that way so it took a little time to get to know the different players on the thunder what their tendencies war. But once that came about You know that it was a lot easier to call the games but it was just a different It was an adjustment to go from. You know the the speed of the game to end in to some of the you know there was a lot of You know call like Ping Pong you know you know just throwing it from each other as blue back and forth little bit stuff so it was a little bit of that to us to and then you just learn learned that You know not to try to catch every little thing that was happening so it sound a little bit better coming out to the audience you know so I wasn't. It wasn't as much you know. Different possession of the Puck as you had at that level and that was a lot of fun to because the thunder was pretty good and that was That'd be we're coming on. They were coming on a tough conference to. I mean you had the Peoria mustangs. They were really good You had the Saint Louis Junior Blues. Which would have been the team to beat Nashville predators had a team. I think they're in the same conference. Yeah Nashville yeah the and the and the Nashville predators. One of their coaches was Chris Mason. Who has played for the Cincinnati Mighty ducks and then had gone to play? You know about nine years in the National Hockey League with Nashville. Being one of the teams he played for. So it's fun to the catch up with him again to David Carpet. He was coaching the team so he played for the Cincinnati. Cyclones when I was there so There were Some familiar faces. The lakes in recognizable coaches But it was a good league and You know the Thunder. They read that disadvantage because they got the later. Start in some of these other programs but they were coming on and they were pretty competitive. That last year they played at the gardens and then they moved up to You know the place up in Dayton that's That's all we got to work together to so it was a lot of fun watching them They had really good players. Jake store I think is a name. I remember Yup. Another guessing was when we went up to Dayton was not having that You know that sideline view but having it from the end zone trying to call the game that way because you're to saying in the far corner near corner that kind of thing and then now. Suddenly clouds left corner right corner recording. Yes I it was a different terminology. Try to throw in there for a little bit. You know two hundred hundred England when it was at the other end. You couldn't always see when a goal was scored as well. You know if there was a scrambler something. You couldn't really tell who was kidding. It from the foreign. It was a little more guests work. You know at that point too so that was an adjustment but it was also good. Because I'd never had to do it that way so it was fun to to You know call the game from you. Know a different Different perspective you know. It was just totally new experience so that was all right. Yeah I mean it's it's a little tough like you mentioned if it's happening in the far and you know and there's a lot of bodies it's tough to see and I I deal with that for high school hockey up itself Metro but same time. It gives you a gives you more of an advantage because you know you see it not quite three sixty but you have more waste. Catch it type of thing. Yeah exactly so you know I do. Miss Call Him. You Know Games and I look forward to the founder Games. I think I did whatever was fifteen games in do fifteen games but You know it was. It was a way to stay in touch with hockey and You know they had A. They had a nice group of people that were involved with that organization Know Ryan the head coach Ranko Bill. He's now Calgary in the western Hockey League as assistant. Coach Duane. Sutter former New York islander in. He's the head coach of that team. So you know. He's he's moved on and having some. You know some good success coaching in the Western hockey. You know and that's going to help him. And eventually you know who get to be coaching the junior team in that at some point you would think. Do you follow high school hockey in the area a little bit. You know I see it pop up. Sometimes you know different people involved with in in my social and that but You know as far as going to games and that I haven't really had much of an opportunity to get out and watch any I mean there's there's some really good high school teams to I mean. Molar is probably one of the better ones say XS up their elder. They were really good when I start calling high school hockey which thanks to the thunder. That's how I got him with. Centerville in spring borough so that was. Yeah that was I would it? I would see high school games. You know when I was working for the Cincinnati mighty ducks because they would have on Saturdays. You know you'd see the high. School teams are on Sundays at the gardens. They'd be playing before the mighty ducks games are after the mighty ducks game so I was able to watch the molars in the in the sycamore than Elders that there and they would have practices there so I would see that you know in the late afternoons every day but that you know once the mighty ducks left you know. I wasn't Around I didn't have that access to it that a key today back then I understand and and I think my big worry about the gardens was what's going to happen to all the high school teams luckily They all found homes with northland or sports. Plus so the definitely needs to be those arena that we talked about earlier in the podcast. You the definitely needs to be more ice if anyone's listening and has deep pockets start building rinks because that'd be great and and built rings with like the DO N. I don't know if you're going to talk about but the desk at the USA rink at sports. Plus it's like s that's awesome. It's got like the fastest Internet you can ever imagine it just streaming. There's just beautiful now on the other side the Canadian site. They don't have a desk but which is fine. But you set up. Between one of the benches and sin-bin they put one of those stickers on like. This is how you protect your neutral zone. It's like why would you put it on the glass? That's how I see came from. Oh that was not fun. I had to lean over the glass with the camera everything. Luckily I didn't get struck but the the good thing though is I mean you. You still calling games. And that's what matters. Yeah and I'm very thankful for that and it seems like people really do appreciate you know someone covering ice hockey so you know if you ever if you ever catch a high school game and you know it's Centerville plan you know look map because I'll probably be there definitely do that. Don Thank you so much for your time today. And that concludes episode one forty nine the Cincinnati Dayton sports. Podcast up next the milestone one fifty. Hey folks just a couple of things to talk about before we wrap up episode one forty nine as you heard the close out the interview. The One hundred fiftieth episode is next. I'm really excited for it.

What Does A Perfect 2021 Offseason Look Like - Stars Edition

"Hey guys this is. Mike madonna and you're listening to start kassar remarks on free. Sixty five cast radio network and welcome in to the star. Cast liquor mark studio along with christian chambers. I'm ryan chambers. And you are listening to the only dallas stars fan led show tonight. We have a very special lineup for you I offer to talk about a couple of side use of articles. That are absolutely fantastic. And i'd love to talk about them so we're gonna get a couple of You know in looks from what. Chris thinks about Maybe what the perfect season could look for the dallas stars and we're also going to talk about You know assessing player performance in relation to their salary very interesting article that saud yussef put out about how the salary of one player can be seen whether it's up to par for what's expected for that player and then we're going to get into the kind of the more fun part of tonight show and we're going to do our very first our very own seattle expansion draft and not just for stars for those of you that listen to the To the podcast episode this last week. We're going to go through each team. And hopefully we get the right players. We don't know a ton about all the players but we're gonna pick him anyway just for fun so anyways Gershon why don't you say hello to the audience out there a little audience out there. I am christian. I'm going to talk about things. Great great because everybody cares what we think everybody. Okay yes okay so anyway let let quick thing before we get into all this who would have thought oh okay. Let's backtrack a week and a half. Who would have thought that the montreal canadiens would be up three to nothing in the second round. The playoffs series. When they're down three games to one to the toronto maple leafs. I mean. I saw it coming from a mile away. It was pretty obvious how. How insane is that absolutely. I don't know. I don't know whether to think i don't want to say that. The canadian division sucks. But i'm starting to believe you. Chris i really am yeah kane. Division sucks and carry price decided to start. Playing crazy decided to start playing crazy. You disagreed okay. So i just want to point this out off air right before we started curse actually admitted that i was right about carey price. If you heard our little. You know sneak peek. That i put out on twitter and facebook and stuff like that. Chris argued about the fact whether carey price was as good as you know people say that he is and i said he was. Chris said nah he's as good as it used to be. But i think christian is finally starting to come to the dark side to the side. We have cookies. No only three of the last four games. He's been crazy. The other games easy. You just got lucky. And he decided to start being creased. Good job for for one for one of my few hot takes being right here. But that's what she did. Yeah okay so brats. Yep exactly so. Anyways chris so let's get into a couple of bits of stars news before we get started with the articles We wanna briefly. Mentioned the fact that matt franks had an article out talking about Tyler seguin not ruin the article for you guys out there but if you go and check it out Tyler zagan is his. Rehab is coming along very well. We're very excited. That he's gonna be ready for the For the training camp Do you think the tyler seguin is going to be a basically like a major free agent acquisition for the stars. Since he basically didn't play at all last season. I mean yeah. Can we view it that way. Yeah absolutely. I mean 'cause you see that we are on the bubble last season and with the acquisition in quotes of tyler. Seguin giving into next season is gonna feel like a completely different team so yeah i think that's totally fair way to look at it well and we'll see this here in a second when we talked about the second article but it's really interesting seeing what's going on with all of the stuff okay all right so first of all we want to get into what perfect offseason could look like for the dallas stars. it's still a little bit early to be to consider this like the off season. The off season because not much is going on other than the playoffs. So there's you know eight teams remaining fixing to be four. And then they'll whittle it down to two way yeah really. I'm not sure how that works. At least i think that's how it works right not positive about that anyways k. So what we do wanna mention here. Real quick is breaking news. According to today is at the canadian government actually is Dropping the the border. I don't know what you want to call it. The border crossing guidelines that they have for you know teams coming over to the To canada so when whichever. Canadian team wins which it looks like it's going to be montreal. Who they play they will actually be allowed To go to go into the united states and the comeback and then which and then no vice versa for whatever. Us team they have. The us team will be allowed to go to montreal and again. I'm saying montreal. But we've seen crazy. You're things happen but it. That's that's a done deal so the canadian governments allowing it. Yeah not really a shocker. I mean we can't expect it. We saw it coming. I'm surprised that it didn't come sooner. But i mean well who cares. Nobody really expected that to be an issue. All right so honestly the sock about the actual offseason for the star stuff. So i got it off on random tangent. I meant to mention that earlier. Okay For the for the off season it almost seemed like last. Offseason was the biggest off season for the stars and a lot of people will just based off the fact that you know. The stars made the stanley cup playoffs. You know a lot of people were saying. Oh well they're not. That was a complete fluke. They're not gonna be able to do it again. which right now. It looks like that. That's true that it was a fluke. But i think this off season is going to be a an era defining moment for the jamie benn tyler sagan john klingberg era and i think this is the last season for them to do anything of damage in the playoffs. Agree disagree no all this offseason is big because we actually have things that need to be moved and stuff like is obvious things that need to happen. Ecorse expansion draft is gonna shake things up as well. So that's that's why. This offseason is where jim nill needs to start making his money. I have full. Faith is going to do everything absolutely amazingly because he's pretty much done that since he's been the gm of dallas. And i've been very happy with it so if Other than that where i'll get always gotta be one thing right. Yes exactly but i mean that's why this is big we gotta get dhabi off the off the books we got assigned miro heiskanen into a longer deal like there's another big auto staff. Yeah there's a lot big things that would need to do. That's why this offseason is important. Well and there's a there's a ton of sub topics within this Within this article The the first one is probably the most obvious one in. We hate to say that like we can use this as an excuse for the fact that we didn't make make the playoffs. But i you know and we say that we do use. This is an excuse that we didn't make the playoffs. But the fact that the injuries of the stars sustained to major major major components of this team is the reason why. I think we didn't make the playoffs. This offseason season and the first thing for a perfect twenty twenty one off season for the stars is that all of the injured players make full recoveries which which unfortunately missing the playoffs helps. Yes so i am. I mean you can look at that. You know killing two birds with one stone kind of thing. I it sucks that it happened that we didn't make the playoffs but at the same time we're really going to be carolina. I don't. I don't know you get back into that argument. Go back to whatever okay. So robust hands on surgery within the past couple weeks to to fix his left abductor. Tendon that he's been dealing with since the twenty twenty stanley cup. Final so he he went and got that taken care of. And it looks like he's gonna make a full recovery before training camp Roddick fox obviously. We didn't know about fox You know i mean. We knew that he was hurt in the in the stanley cup final But we didn't know that the same nagging injury kept him injured for the entire twenty one season so this is giving him some time to recover as well Alexander radulov dealing with a core muscle surgery. That's absolutely sounds painful. Hopefully he makes a huge comeback for the stars. And obviously we kind of mentioned it. Already but tyler sagan coming back from offseason hip surgery You know we hoped that he was going to come back at a time. When the stars we're going to be making a playoff push but that didn't come to fruition unfortunately so So how possible is it to see all of these players back at one. Hundred percent waving is going to happen. You think everybody's going to be one hundred percent before the before the season starts. Yes okay so we have. We weren't four and a half months. Yeah we're going to be fine all right and then so and then you know one more big injury to mentioning in this actually gets its own category In the saudis have article but the second one is bishop getting back to at least eighty percents of you know where he was. When he was the runner up How important and i don't wanna diminish been bishops importance to this team because he is very important and a lot of stars fans. I've just forgotten because he hasn't played in so long now and the last time we saw him play within the stanley cup playoffs in the bubble and he sucked it up. Big time so is it as big a deal for him to get back to where he was or is it not as important with the emergence of j. Gotten better we think if you want to win the stanley cup play offs have to have at least a top five golden. Nhl pretty much in my opinion now from seeing the previous teams that have won it or at least just a hot goaltender right then time at that time. What okay they had. You have have amazing goalie. He has to make amazing saves. Who does the only reason or even close to sniffing stanley cup. So it's yeah if you want to win the stanley cup. It's vital to the regular season. It's not super vital or not as vital normal. So did you think we can expect bishop to return to hire percent health at all. I mean you can't ever expect that when when it's been listened in bishop and the other thing we didn't mention is that you know yes the goaltender and yes. He's great but also thirty five now so and i. it doesn't hit goaltenders as much as it does. You know just skaters or you know forwardsor defensemen or whatever but does he take that back because of the fact that he's been injured for so long and the age is catching up to him. The only way he would take a step back as if he truly cannot play the same way at all to what he was doing it auditor just really explodes onto the scene. Which i don't see happening. It's very unlikely. So i think bishop is still going to be a great goalie if he's going to be business quality. Which is what we would need to win a cup. You know that that all just comes down to who gets at the end of the season so can't really predict that will end. Here's what i would turn turn to with. Ben bishop and you're saying oh he's getting older and stuff like that who is probably the front runner for the vezina trophy. This season. marc andre fleury. How old is he. Thirty-seven are still say vassallo ski. I think that vassilev ski is the best goaltender in the nhl. I would which is what the trophy -sposed debate. Now i think the trophy is for is for the best season and i think that marc andre fleury deserves that trophy. Believe this or not. I cannot believe this but mark andrea. Flurry has never even been a finalist for the vezina trophy. It's kinda crazy. Isn't that insane to think about that. Now not even third place he. He's he's never gotten any higher than fourth. he's thirty seven years old and this is the first time that he's a runner up for it. So that's what i would point to when it comes to You know if somebody says. Oh well bishop getting gold that would. That's what i would say Okay the the next topic about perfect season for the dallas stars according to saad yousif Seattle takes khudobin. That would be an answered prayer. That would be an emmy for. I don't the further we get or the further we get the closer we get to the expansion draft on july twenty first the more that i feel like that's not going to happen and we're just gonna have to trade him for something. All these mock drafts. That people are drawn up acting like they're gonna take him. It's it's getting my hopes up dude. I'm getting excited. I'm hoping that they're gonna take him well. And you know that really sucks because in in two fast sets. 'cause i mean he's the goaltender that got us to the stanley cup final. There's no arguing that a and it. It sucks that you know. He's the one that's on his way out. But the i mean what are you gonna do. Bishop bishop is going anywhere. Jake jury's not going anywhere you got three goaltenders for two spots. Yeah d- like khudobin better than bishop or orange. Some people say yes. Which in my opinion. That's absolutely insane. He's an amazing goaltender but unfortunately he's not built like a great goal tender in somehow he still is a goaltender. I don't know how he does that. But for consistency. And for what you want in the you want to bigger goalies who are already proven that they are great so no reason to keep it open. I love khudobin to. I will always. I will never forget what he what he did in dallas. They'll that's crazy. But i don't see him plagues the stars next season well and then this the crack in selecting him would solve a lot of the russia problems for the for the dallas stars. I think the number one thing on the docket for the offseason is moving khudobin as cheaply as possible. And that would be as cheap as you can get. That'd be nothing so right and i. I don't think there's any other way we could do that without moving him in retaining some of his salary was. Don't wanna do. We want to get rid of all of its resigned. The young guys right and especially with the flat cap and a lot of people are saying this. This flat cap is going to last another three or four years. Which wow if that happens if that happens ask suck that's going to screw teams as well. It's gonna. It's gonna screw a lot of players to get in there pay days. There's going to be fewer and fewer Guys in their early twenties. They're gonna. they're not going to get their pay days. Because of the pandemic real quick if tangent on that sharon they're in a great place. If that happens to be honest. I mean and it's completely jim nill he set it up perfectly wasn't expecting flat a flat cap to come in flat tax tax. We we don't. We're not really other than the i would say. Maybe maybe jamie been. There's not really a guy that we're paying a ridiculous amount that we need that cap increase so we can get more players right like the new york rangers signed. What's his face. he's not even that good to ten million dollars or whatever and they're screwed so pinera talking about pinera up aaron pioneer and has been excellent for them. If you wanna if you want better yeah now if you want a better example i'd probably shoot you towards florida surburb roszke. He signed a ten million dollar contract. But that was a bad contract and especially considering they've got christie or now who has come out of nowhere and they've also got spencer night so yes talk about. You know a a loaded crease. That's it's worse for laurie. But my point is whenever people sought signed players to those big contracts. They're banking on the cap getting increased yearly. So that as time goes on that contract is worth less and less right. Now it's not gonna be worthless unless it's gonna be worth that crazy amount of your cap space so those guys are kinda screwed whereas we have a lot of people signed right now when the we're already at the flat cap so that actually benefit us overall it might screw some players which sucks for them but right hockey's a business bro. You're getting paid millions of dollars. Be happy well and then. Here's the here's the to take it full circle back to the khudobin if if they do take khudobin. That's three point. Three million dollars off the cap and base off the numbers and things that i've seen about you know players who are going to return and players who are not going to return if this if khudobin is taken the sars will have about eight million dollars to play with for free agency and that's with like all these certain players signed in assuming the best further for the dallas stars and we'll talk about that here in second but And the other thing is that you know out of the players that are going to be expected to be taken by from the dallas stars. And we talked about this in our pass episode on a wednesday or tuesday or whenever it was It looks like it's going to be between jason dickinson radic fox Anton khudobin and i mean because you have to protect joe pavelski. Based off of the season. He had right. You have to you. I saw a lot of drafts. Not protecting pills key to which i think is you're gonna in either one like if you're gonna protect jason dickinson over joe pavelski or roddick fox Overdue pavillon ski. Sorry that's not happening. I don't care how old how old he is joe. Pavelski was our best forward for majority of the season. So that's that potential and like you said our window is closing on at least these the our original core of jamie benn sagan. I think this is it. I think this is the season. 'cause contracts come off. I don't know if this is it. But i think is we're getting there for at least these older guys but like we've talked about the young core coming to is going to be great. We're not gonna. we're not going to go back to to the the twenty garbage forever. Yeah please no. And i just hope tom. He doesn't go bankrupt Okay anyways next Next topic for best offseason hopes for the dallas stars affordably taking care of restricted free agents. So obviously who's the the biggest restricted free agent for the dow stars. Gee i wonder that would be joel. Kiviranta down you got to protect them just because of that. One hat trick in the playoffs. No i'm just kidding. Obviously the The the best you know the biggest thing is miro heiskanen And we've had lots of conversations about this 'cause this is a big topic of Concern if you're a dallas stars fan But you know we've kind of already talked about this about a month ago With mir hoskin. And what he's gonna sign I think he does resign. Obviously he's not going to hold out. The stars have been good to him. He's been good to the stars but big question. How many years does he get and for. How long in for side. He's saying that the perfect scenario for the stars would be a bridge deal of three years at around five and a half million per season. Yeah i think actually i. I was thinking about this earlier in. I think that's more and more likely because of the flat cap because the way the way you pitch it is. We don't know when the cat's going to start increasing again so you don't wanna make your big deal right now. When who knows it could shoot up and a couple of years so take your bridge now. Take a breads contact iran whenever the cap does increase. That's when you're going to become one of the highest payed defenseman league. Keep progressing the way you are so i. I think that's a enticing pitch. But you know we'll see but my only thing about that is i. I would expect him to command more more money. I think the three years is probably right. But i do think five and a half is low and maybe jim nill can talk to him and get but i think about all the things. A mirror. heiskanen does for this team. he's constantly on the ice either him or klingberg He puts in way more minutes on both on. Both sides of the puck offensively and defensively. Hey plays the power play. He plays the penalty. Kill i mean i well. Yeah is so much for the stars. That i just don't five and a half his enough five point. Five is still definitely a top four defenceman pay range in the upper end of course and it's a bridge deal like you're gonna get to renegotiate it in a few years and if you're expecting to get better and better like i'm sure he wasn't happy with the year he had this year overall and he's expecting to play better in the future so why not hold out and get that huge payday later on. I mean i think. I honestly think that'd be really enticing coach so five point five six point five. That would be great. I think it's likely and that kind of puts him around the same cap hit as saccharin sqi and mikhail sergachev. Which you know those are not those are two names that you would want to be mentioned in the same sentence s so that would put him just above both of those guys and we still barely older than me. So right. that's the other thing you gotta think about. It's like that's insane. Somebody these guys go through how. He's twenty two twenty three twenty one or twenty two. I can't remember off the top of my head. is he's low twenties. I know that anyways he Saw it also does throw a side note in there for dickinson and key routes. He says Bring him back for a two year. around one. point eight million. I think that's fair. Based off of the way dickinson played this past year. He was asked to do a lot. You know fill in roles that that's not his game or whatever an. He did the best that he could with what he was given and then obviously The other one is your kiviranta. That'd be another one to bring back in. you know. he just says just give him a qualifying offer. Nine hundred thousand so yeah anyways talking about re signings And i wanna i. I'm glad that he mentioned this. Because i wanted to get back to this too. Is resigning jamie alexia back. Because you know i was i was kind of talking you and dad down a little bit about you. Know y'alls fears about him being selected by the seattle cracking I'm a little bit less confident. In saying that he would go to the seattle cracking and for one reason only and i kind of mentioned it. But i didn't mention it enough to freak myself out enough so he wants to be a dallas star. I believe that. And he's found himself a good d- partner with miramax cohen. Now the thing. I'm scared about is that four day period between when they're supposed to have selected the players that they wanna keep and then the actual expansion draft so the time that the teams you know have their protected lists in before the twenty-first so during those four days so between the eighteenth and the twenty first this seattle cracking can talk to any of these players that are on these non-protected lists and talk expanse. Our expansion extensions. Excuse me now. I would expect him. He could probably get three or four for maybe up of four and a half million from the stars. I believe that yeah The only thing. I'm scared about is if seattle comes to him and says we'll give you five years for five and a half million. I don't know even. Just gimme ac. If you're jimmy alexia. Is that money enticing. Enough to leave the dallas stars to leave a good d- partner in mere. Hey skin and and know that more than likely. You're not going to have a great team and you're probably going to be the best defenceman on your team. Honestly that was my argument earlier. Right like right. Twenty eight th. He's in he's in cash now so does so does he. Bank does he go and bank. That's that's the big question i mean. I don't think we can look like saad. Says we can't really afford to give him the bank. We could try. Maybe maybe we're not reciting dickinson to give him a million more than we would normally. Maybe something like that happens. But we're not going to give him a six year contract worth five six million dollars. That's not going to happen. We can't afford it and another. I don't f another team offering that seattle seattle's one i mean they're not gonna have. They're not they're not gonna have any contracts they can offer whatever the heck they want and make it work. Well i'm saying all it's not just seattle. We need to get stuck on seattle. Like i just play for anybody. I just don't think that that most teams are going to give him more than four and a half million. I totally do. I don't think so. i don't see it. Honestly he he's great defenceman and he has spurts of offense that you see what the heck this is a six seven guide dangling miro heiskanen but i don't know and it's maybe because he plays in dallas. He's he's not as big a name but in and it also hurts him that he plays behind players like esa lindell john klingberg mba skin. So i i just don't see him i. I don't see him getting five and a half six million on the free agent market. I don't i. But i think but i think that the cracking would offer it to him to entice him away from the stars because they know he wants to stay with the stars so i think lots of teams will offer him that i hope. Not because then that means we're more than likely losing losing him but So okay so let's just say this is the perfect season for the dallas stars With all of this out of the out of the way all this talk. Let's just say that he does resign. And that's the perfect. You know offseason thing for the stars and he's gonna sign for three years at three and a half million per season. That's the best thing for this this deal. That would be a complete steal if that were true. Okay and talk more. Defensemen i I mary hey skin in the most important people right. It's it's not like this team is built on defense or anything The the next thing talks about his agreeing to an extension with john klingberg. So i don't think this is big deal right now this offseason as it would be next offseason but it's really nice to get these sort of things done and out of the way before the before next season starts so that you know that he's going to be coming back. So how. how important do you think this is. It's very important. And i don't really know if you could get klingberg to the to the table right now actually just because of the flat cap that we were talking about like just holding out waiting to see if things boost back a lot quicker than. They're expecting like that's totally. I think a smart thing to do like business. Wise for klingberg. So i don. I don't even think that that's going to happen. I mean it'd be great. But i don't think that's likely at all well. Here's the thing even if he does sign a quote unquote birds contract. He's in the prime of his career right. Now he's twenty eight sunday bridge contract no chance gonna signing his six at least or he's not signing you. Really you really think so. No bridge contractor juggling. I hope you're right. 'cause 'cause the i want him nail down So when we first signed him to an extension when he had that breakout season and that feels like ages ago now Jim nill did excellent with a signing. He got him for four and a quarter million Four point two five million. I think it was like for four or five years at that point when he signed it. Obviously he's not gonna sign that again. He's he's gonna be expecting somewhere. North of six million. I would i think personally. So how much does he get and for. How long chris. I think the comparison to the tory crew contract is pretty fair. I think it's around six and a half. Maybe maybe a little bit lower. Maybe six for the same time at least six years at least six years. It's longer to eight. You push up the money. Obviously so i'm hoping he stays around because obviously he's not gonna leave. We're not gonna let them get rid of lots of players to make sure he doesn't leave. Yeah thank thank. God is would sign up. I think eight million a year if he if he demanded it like they were to lose john klingberg. Yup all right. So here's here's the next topic so enough defenseman we finally get to go into the forage a little bit. Okay so the next topic. That saudis puts up here for things to happen for a perfect offseason gun. Young prospects make the jump and we saw that with the stars this year just because of the fact that we had a lot of players that were injured at certain points of the year. I mean we saw brett gardner as a rookie in there. Obviously the the big ones jason robertson and jake gotten juror. We saw tidal andrea. Make his debut I mean there. nick commando Joel less l'esperance that to a lesser degree. Those two but the some of these young prospects really need to make the jump. Further stars this next season and fully expect our fourth line to be all young prospects. See i think we've had so many prospects at texas for like five years now in like two of them have made the jump in robea angry on of so it's totally time to start trusting them more. Save some cap space because of all the signings we have to do in trust the younger guys especially because of the the cap ceiling well in the the big thing for me is we need to change. How the bottom. Six is looking at chugging life because the the checking line needs does not need to be the third line if that makes sense Ugly on komo dawn. I know getting as much as i hate to agree with you. I agree with you. 'cause they played they played really well for us but at points in the year they were our best players in. That's not a good thing even when it's even with cygan and radulov out you know the there were points in the season when robertson was not playing all that well and jamie benn definitely was not playing well for a majority of the season until he got moved to center and stuff like that. So here is what. I would like to see out of the dallas stars next season. I would like to see them. Give their young guys a chance on the third line. And i want the third line to be seen as a scoring line rather than a checking line and i don't know how well that fits system for rick bowness. Because he liked he loved to play. cog lino komo together in a either dickinson or fox. Down the middle the sec line or that. The cdc line. So i would love to see the difference in that and then go ahead go ahead. Yeah go ahead in some way. You're going to get what you want. But i think they're still going to be some form of a checking line. it's just gonna turn into. I think it's it's got to be the fourth line we'll either that doesn't matter third fourth. Who cares like that. That doesn't matter. It was only the third line this year because we ran out of players. We were playing. Nobody's on the fourth line. So third or fourth. It doesn't matter it's gonna be dickinson fox An somebody else. Yeah i agree. And i would love to see them. Start checking line agree and then our young prospects are all goal scorers like we don't have like someone who we classify only as a defensive forward late that'd be that'd be terrible prospect anyway so yeah our fourth line is or third line. Whatever you wanna call it is gonna be the one that's gonna be r our scoring bottom to line just because random or the guys who have the potential score random thought. I'd love to see a line of these. Three guys. Read gardner jason. Dickinson radic foxy. I think that would be a perfect checking line for four thousand for the stars and for the third line. Leave it open to the to these prospects. That i mean we. We need to mention this. But riley damiani he he. He was named as joe rookie of the year this past week. So you know this is the guy that was a fifth round pick back in eighteen. I believe and now he's really starting to make his move. And i think with all of these contracts that were that were losing He has a real chance to making the stars roster and i hope he does because we obviously if there's anything that this team needs more of a scoring right am i wrong. No you so wrong. We don't need it anymore. So that's just what. I'm hoping that we see these. Young prospects like damiani and master in and harley even harley i'd love to see hurley make the jump next year even though he's new he's probably arguably our best prospect but because our defenses so loaded. I just don't know if he can push for a job. 'cause i i would not want him harley to be in the third peering the am i being ridiculous and thinking that yes are you think so i would i would. I would wanna see him playing a top four minutes and with the players that we have right now. That's not going to happen. He would still get good enough minutes on the third pair. That wouldn't be an issue but if he's a seventh i agree with you. But if he's a he's a fifth or six that's fine. I'm only worried about that. I'm only worried about that. Because of the way that we've seen bonus run as defense. I mean he. Highly highly highly leans on those top for defenceman and we could see that base off the ice time. 'cause i mean whoever was on but he still didn't play he played like sometimes a third of what miro heiskanen john klingberg and sometimes even jamie alexia played so. That's that's why. I would hate to see harley get stalled at the nhl level because he's on the third defensive pairings sense. I it makes sense in my head. But i would hate to see him. Get that third hearing. Just because of that so i don't know maybe i'm just thinking over thinking it too much. I think everything. I think he'd be on third period. You'll get enough minutes to to learn and get better but yeah but that's a fair criticism. But i understand it but it would be kind of cool to see him and joe hanley. That would be a really cool third pairing. I'd love to see that so anyway. So that's confusing. Yeah harley hardly the handling hanley harley okay so and this next one we're going back to perfect offseason for the dallas stars This one i had never really thought about. And i find this really interesting. So he says to move back in the draft is one of the big things for the stars for perfect offseason. Does any of that make sense to you. Asa why that would be christian because right now they have. The fourteenth overall draft pick and the likelihood of getting like a franchise altering player at that. Point is not very likely but especially this year. We talked about the word that i use for. This draft is a crap shoot. I mean there's gonna be players that are taken in the second round that some some boards may have in the sixth round or vice versa. There may be somebody picked twenty second overall that somebody else sees as a lower third round pick or something else. It's a complete crap shoot. So do you agree with this whole notion of maybe moving back in the draft for the stars and may be getting more draft picks ca. I understand the logic a little bit. Yeah it 'cause it either. You get more draft picks for players that you could be more certain of in later rounds like just due to size and skill and just pure athletic ability rather than some random katie's just scoring a ton of points for some reason and we're gonna undrafted because why not a also if you could get another prospect for the first round. Pick any way that you actually have some information on other than who knows who is in the draft right now. Nobody does so it makes sense. yeah. I don't know if it's it won't make a big difference for the stars within the next three years. I have at most so well and as far as As far as for us fans with short term shorter memories. I don't think this matter so much well and this. May i mean if you're gonna even think about doing that as the stars this may be the year to do it because honestly sometimes it's not necessarily about where you dropped in the nhl. Because i mean i mean look at edmonton for example. I mean how. Many number one draft picks up. They had over the past ten fifteen years. Quite a bit off taylor hall ryan nugent hopkins connor mcdavid and and they drafted high like not. Just you know top ten but sometimes five on a consistent basis and yes. They're making the playoffs. But i mean look what that happened to them this season the they got swept so and then what the other argument i will look at is who are the two biggest players for the stars right now who have been kiss who have been there for the longest time. Jamie benn well. Even before sagan before sagan jamie benn and john klingberg when were those guys drafted what round where those guys drafted in in the fifth around for both of those guys so it's and then and then look at joe pavelski. When was he drafted sixteenth. Or something like that was like the seventh or ninth around or something crazy like that but it's not always about where you draft but how many draft picks that you have because you have more chances to hit the dartboard so that kinda makes sense to me and and is kind of you know. Pull me over to the dark side and giving me cookies on On that particular idea so any final thoughts on that that's too. That's too far advance for me. My my brain doesn't comprehend anything that's happening week of my prison being so i don't know about all that all right Okay and here's here's a fun one all right so the his next one is sign a true scoring difference maker in free agency. And you know. Jim nill is not really known for going out and getting high profile me. No signings in free agency when he does they suck. That's not pets a that. That is not true. Okay look at alexander radulov. That was that was a great signing spent. So as a good saying i remember when we signed specimen we thought we were going to win the cup man. Talk okay so So according to cat friendly the stars are projected. Have about sixteen point nine million dollars cap space okay. So let's just lift talk about all the numbers that we thrown out for a second. Okay so sawed you said is saying these numbers for these players k so hey in a perfect scenario so this is perfect world scenario according to saudi stiff Hey skins five and a half million dickinson and kiviranta combining for about three million. So that's eight and a half right there in alexi acts three and a half million come to about twelve million. Okay so those are the players that he feels like should be resigned. And then that would leave us. W- with about five million dollars in cap space to work with five million dollars. You can get a decent player. I mean think about like tyler toffoli for example with the montreal canadians. He signed a four year. I think it was four and a half ish contract with the montreal canadians and he was among the top goalscorers in the nhl. This past season So we could get somebody good for that but we kinda mentioned this. If khudobin gets taken in the perfect world scenario for the stars that leaves the stars with about eight million dollars to work with which eight million dollars would be perfect. And that's assuming we don't resign any of the other players That we haven't talked about. So you know camo kalayaan. Oh all those guys. We don't resign those guys. Those guys come back so even though that claim berg's Let's say that let's go back to this. So claimed six and a half million would kick in after next season so he still on the four point two five this upcoming season but his his extension but kick in and twenty twenty two twenty twenty three but at the exact same time travel. Ski in radulov's numbers would come off the books and twenty twenty two so then not only do. The stars have room for a big name. Possible player you know. North of eight million dollars. They can also offer more than just a one year deal. Which in this in the way that the cap is this season. That is a huge thing to have. Because you're this for the next couple years you're gonna see a lot of big name players. Sign these one two three year contracts and a lot of them signing one year contracts. Just because you know. They can't fit under the cap if they signed a big contract. So i think that is huge for this. I thought chris that'd be awesome. But that's not going to happen scenario. That's why this is a perfect world. Scenario right yeah. it's the perfect word scenario. We're not signing as came from five point five and three point five. That's just it's not be insane okay. So let's a wizard magician. He would ways like. I'm glad we're on the same brainwave. Their magic frigging now but some older out here. Okay or well. Let's say that he let's say that khudobin still does get taken but we have to pay more to those two players so let's give them a million dollars more each okay. So alexia gets you know four and a half million which that seems like over paying a little bit to me and then hey skin and get six and a half million which that seems a bow right. If you're doing a bridge do more than that. The stars still have six million dollars in cap space if that happens. That's enough to get somebody. It's not enough to get taylor hall. Eight and a half really not taylor all and i know and sawed you said goes on a slight tangent under that in this paragraph talking about taylor and i guess you could make an argument for taylor hall based off of what. We're seeing here in the playoffs With boston this israeli the first time he's been in the playoffs past the first round. God bless his heart Because he's always been on second teams but I would say that there's still other players that the stars should go after you know. There's there's got to be a bigger name player out there who i think. The biggest important thing that he has to have on his resume is stanley cup. A stanley cup win. So even i don't even know if you need that. I mean the guys. We have our our veteran guys. This whole team was in a crazy stanley cup. Playoff push like so a lot of them. Have that experience. That's true yeah. I don't think we need. The veteran presence. Taylor hall would be fine it maybe two other guys that consistently get like a like twenty points. They consistently get twenty points a year. Both of them for this. And here's what i'm thinking about. Perfect world scenario for like two players. I i'm thinking specifically of the third line of the tampa bay lightning like somebody like i'm specifically talking about blake coleman barkley goudreau. Those guys can score goals. They can score extremely important goals at the right time but at the same time. They're on the third line. The role is not as big as some of the other players that they will that you know that we have that will be expected to pick up those rains and we get a third scoring mine which i feel like. That's what we need so we we need somebody like a a blake. Coleman barkley goudreau Something like that. Maybe even josh anderson Or joey anderson. Joey anderson it. I don't think is gonna get resigned in toronto. And i think he'd be a great pickup for the stars but I mean lots of interesting conversations here because the and it looks like the stars. You're going to have a little bit of money to pay to play with assuming that tom. Gloria will let jim know spend to the cap A final thoughts on that chris. Yeah i mean that's exactly what talking about. Just we find a couple of guys who are able to consistently score and the do not the flashiest guys but their depth scoring instead of depth work that we have had. We've had death work with colorado and komo but scoring is the thing that we've had so yeah totally agree so the topic for this article is He mentioned for the stars. having perfect. offseason is find impactful depth three agents in no looking at toronto. We can see how important those depth players can be. Obviously for rape believes that did not work so whatever toronto dead and finding quote unquote grits. That's not what the stars need at this point. What they need to do is they need to find somebody that fits into their system that can score goals that can be on the third line. That's my belief in what we need. for for the stars in maybe you avoid signing big name players that you can sign better guys on the back end well and we don't. We don't need those big name players. I don't that's what we have. We have our school players. They may not be. The you know the sexy you know connor mcdavid and the the leon draisaitl 's awesome matthews of the world. But we have guys that can get the job done if they just need a little bit of health and they need to be frigging healthy. So that's funny that so i didn't even read this at this particular sentence but he but Saad actually mentioned blake coleman Under this Sub topic Oh that's funny. He mentions michio work. I don't i don't see him coming back. Pull another alexia eric. Now these good again. We'll take him right exactly. Jordan band have already banned. Yeah he winstons jordi to as seventh as a seventh. I think it would be okay as carolina fair. We're gonna have to come up with a new name for the for the show. Just because it's the stars resigned dirty been but it hurricane in all in all rea- a reality though i don't think a dirty bin reunion would necessarily be bad if as long as as long as he's the seventh defenceman if he's tajiks no absolutely not. I have never hated a defenseman. More than i hated. Geordie georgie ben. He just got unfortunate. All the puck bounced off of him. Yeah wakey lewis. That's not necessarily his fault. He's been gone for a long time. Now maybe that curses on somebody else like on vancouver or trey all something just said i hated man reversals near the personal totally. Not in this way. Oh man so okay. So should the stars go out and get a big name or do they sign like a like two players to play on the third line. Who do you think. Do they really need a giant. I let me let me say giant. Let me say solid a solid scoring difference maker versus like to three players that play on the third line. That could make a difference. Yeah i think need depth scoring more than the need. A taylor hall so taylor hall would be really cool and don't get me wrong. I'd be so excited if we signed taylor hall. That'd be awesome. But i think in actuality from purely intellectual standpoint if we can this hard for you to do right very hard if we can get guy who truly consistently score goals in a depth role. That's what we need. That's what we have never had so like in the entire jamie benn tyler seguin era. We've never had consistent depth scoring guys. So we're gonna find that. I think that's the ideal. Yeah i'm gonna completely agree with you on that part because That third line is going to be a huge difference maker for the dallas stars this year. Because when you look at the lines. Here's what i think is going to happen. i line. I believe they're going to keep the three together. For the for the furthest the big three for the star this past season pourville ski roberson and hence i think they keep those three guys together. And that's that's our top line second line. I do think that jamie benn sagan radulov will stick together so that leaves on that third that third line believe it or not that leaves dennis kyrie off looking in on the third line scoring line if we look at it that way so. I think that you could make a pitch to some freedoms. Hey you could play with a guy who can really freaking shoot the puck. I mean snipe it when he's confident and we need you to help him. Realize that confidence again so i think that would be a fantastic thing that that's what i'm working at for on a from the stars perspective so when i don't want the dickinson and fox so that would suck right now. He he he. He's a scoring forward. That's what he is he. There's a reason why he led the stars in scoring two years ago. It was because of that shots. He has a lethal shots. That looks like another famous russian that we all know ovechkin and skin. His shot is so scary. We just need to get gary on off to that point. I'm not saying that. Gary is as good as can done not saying that at all. Don't twist my words but he he could have shot. That is close to being as lethal as that now. I believe that if he has the right players to play with them It would it would help so okay. That was fun scrapped. All of our you. Y'all to come back next week or maybe we can do a podcast episode with those with those two other things but Any final words chris Before we can cut this off we got about two minutes in any series that you noticed that you like that are going well. Series are going. Well no not for me. No hurricanes are losing. The bruins just got tied up. I was wrong about the canadians again. It's my first round. Was my my second round sucks. I'm looking pretty good for the second round. I said montreal was gonna win. Colorado is going to win. I said islanders were gonna win and then what. What's the last series. I keep forgetting kook cares Dan i forget but whatever i was. You've got your own division. Oh yeah. Carolina hairline yes. That's the one series. I was wrong about. Feels like it's already over. Yeah it kinda kinda does and it looks over anyways. okay guys. Thank you guys for tuning in this evening. chris chambers.

A Tale of Two Opposite Games PGR: Blackhawks 4-6 & 4-8

"Hey guys this mcdonnell. And you're listening to start. Casper marts on free. Sixty five sports radio network. The everybody welcome back star. Cast berks along with chris chambers. I'm ryan and we are here talking about the latest two stars games against the the hammer against the chicago. Blackhawks the columbus blackhawks. Yeah good words ran. Yep where's your heart. Haley's i didn't switch her. Name's this time along with ryan. I'm chris i didn't say that time. That was impressive. You finally joe name right know. Yeah so before. We talk hockey House baseball season going. And you think the rangers are doing brian even care anymore. I watched the first game after that verse game. That was the worst baseball game. I've ever seen in my life. I know all the excitement to build up to an absolute terrible loss. That was one of the worst beta. Y'all don't have to have not going to be talking about baseball on this podcast. 'cause i don't wanna remind myself of it so Will the rangers are doing better now. They're close. they're closer to five hundred than they were. So they're they're worked there six games. I sh- about it. All the dallas teams are perfectly mediocre. The stars are now back to any dislike. Always then you have the cowboys who are perfectly mediocre. And then you've got the rangers who are at. I don't know their record draft of my head but there are at an extra game. The cup was can no longer go eight. Were they gonna do. They did they really. Yeah where i haven't heard about that. I'll seventeen games eight. So is there no no bikes anymore. They just extended the season by a week. So there's so eighteen weeks it has more than eighteen weeks really. You have to play play. Nineteen games now and have a bye week or two. I don't know really wow. Does that mean that they're not doing the four week. Preseason anymore. I hope so. I see that that's one thing that doesn't work for For football for nfl Four games for a preseason is too long. it's not like a hockey. Where are you going to have to figure out like okay hockey time about. Okay sorry. I got sidetracked. Dallas sports are very mediocre anyways. So let's talk about these two black hawk games honestly curse. This is like night and day difference It's like one team and like flop players like wednesday night or something. I don't know so The stars lost on on tuesday with a final score of forty two. And then they won a this with a score. Five to one and There are a couple big storylines from this game but i think the biggest storyline overall is the defense in the turnovers that were cost so in in the first game it was dallas. Who is not doing what they were supposed to be doing on sucked on defense. That was the worst defensive game. I've seen them in two years. Get in in in this game today. They did the exact opposite. They took advantage of honestly the difference from the chicago. Blackhawks was worse than the stars was on tuesday am. I begin to goals on their own. Just from duncan keith. Like google nest. The if i was jeremy colson the head coach of the chicago blackhawks. I watched that second goal. The robertson goal. I would've been the dora faster than you could have said. Oops 'cause that was some of the worst defending i have ever seen so first off. He gives off the puck right. He gives up the puck in a really terrible turnover to rope a hints and then he leaves one of the top rookies in the nhl. Just wide open in front of you. Basically just stood there and there is another instance they were talking about in the third period whereas the door if he was out there for like two minutes and they said he had skated like a full-week a radius of like to feet it was a tale of two games For for the stars in the end this and it just goes to show you the inconsistency of both of these teams honestly. The stars have played better as of late with the past month month. And a half you know. Will this road trip. They ended three two one which is very good for the stars. And that's that's kind of where we need to be if we want to keep track of getting that fourth playoff spot in the crap is honda central. Who cares who cares. It's sponsored by. Isn't that what we want to be. But it keeps us in. The hunt is what it does like. We're we're still not out of it yet so it all it takes is really one. Bad road tripper. Homestand to really to really knock out but as long as we keep playing five hundred hockey where we're going to keep ourselves ourselves In this playoff race at least so it was really frustrating. Watching this game on tuesday. So in the first period kirby dot scored with his very first of the year assisted by kane and murphy and throughout that game we got completely obliterated by that line of doc kane and bring it look like yelling through players on the ice. Kirby is making himself known in that game and Stars had no answer for that line and the the other thing about it was is that the stars were feeding These two one one opportunities these odd man rushes and it was really frustrating. The watch because that's not normally the way the stars play normally. That's one of the staples of especially rick bowness hockey. Is you know limiting those odd man. Rushes yeah absolutely. That's why that's why last game was like. That's why i said was the worst deepens of game we've played because it was honestly just trash They did make a late third period. Push in it was. It was either saw saud yussef on twitter or matt. Franks one of the two. This was basically another one goal game that the stars lost. It's if you look at the records for the stars in one goal games which i have the Stats in front of me. But i talked about this before is the good teams are going to be dominant in those one goal games. They're going to have a clear winning record and that's one of the things that the stars have not been very good at this year as regret last year. And now we've we've talked about this a lot and i mean it we. We just don't have the goal scorers to make it happen. Seems right now. Might we have a few but we just don't have enough guys who can do it so this is not happening so well. So real quick tangent. Some good news for the stars is seems like that. We're going to start getting some reinforcements here very soon within the next couple of weeks so it was reported on twitter that three players alexander radulov tyler seguin and ben bishop are all going to be joining the taxi squad very soon. I think it was believed to be on saturday. So if they're being moved to the taxi squad that means that we could possibly see them. I would think within a week maybe a little more than a week. Maybe negative that they like that a little more than we think. That's just so they can practice with other people so i i'm expecting two weeks but hopefully sooner we we need those guys in. Can you imagine how much of a boost that would be to the stars team right now and i mean we're literally treading water. I mean you can't wonder much in the way that we're doing right now. Yeah yup i mean we've been at five hundred for like half a season now already writer in you gotta think that those three guys like those are big names. Those can push you over the edge. Get you to maybe six hundred till the end of the season. And maybe that's enough to sneak into that garbage for spot like that's all we need like we said like this whole season has just been awash with stars it. It just sucks and if we can somehow find a way to scrape a playoff appearance that that'd be awesome. That's a win right and that would be a huge I think we could be seen as a huge dark horse in the playoffs spot. I think we could give tampa. Bay fits for that in their first round. I'm assuming tampa bay makes the i guess the first seed but at this point they might not so but regardless whatever team we play. I think we're gonna give a lot of fits too and maybe we can get back to that brand of hockey that we played in the bubble obviously with everything. The bubble was perfect. And okay so. I felt like honestly in the game on tuesday that the stars dominated more of the play getting there for checks set up and everything like that and i think that was a clear contrast to the way that this game today tonight was played so it tonight in even though it was a five one score it was definitely not like period and i think the only reason why we were able to survive the first period was first off. The play of anton khudobin khudobin wasn't asked to be superstar but he made the save is where he was needed. But it almost looks like the stars are finally starting to get back to that team defense so it. It's earlier in the season. When we were around in our own zone around the net i would be more panicky with the stars. Play with their defensive play but the past couple games especially these past two weeks. I've been less panicky with how they've been playing in front of their own net. Yes they're the those passes or getting through that you don't want to give up but it seems like that especially our forwards are getting their sticks in the right spot at the right time. Most of the time like ninety percent of the time in those chances aren't happening for the opposing team. Can you hear that. What is that. You're playing the piano. Terry playing the piano. It's no big deal. Anyways what do you. What do you think about that. You think that's just me being crazy or do you think that's true. That's definitely true. I think that we are being more active on defense especially from tuesday night game because tuesday night's game was awful for that but hopefully overall we're just getting better. I think that. I think also a thing that helps out with that. That might not be notable. Is that fight for the six spot. That's been going on between kasich and hanley. I feel like both of their plays has gotten better as the season has gone on. Just because of that competition in that spot and i also think overall has had a much better season this year than you did last year issued. He has that big slapshot. He's been outstanding on the pele. Kill all season. I think he might be one of the more improved players from last season to this season that most people wouldn't really think about. That's a really good point. I haven't thought about that. And especially the the play of all three of those guys you know we spent so much time talking about the top four and how much stars rely on that top four but you know we we sometimes forget the play of those three guys all three of them and especially the emergence of joe hanley unfortunately he He got hurt and everything but the play. All three of those guys have been fantastic. So the other thing that i wanted to talk about was just the face off percentages between the two games so the the face off percentage is between those two games in the first game the stars and this is kind of been flip floppy A little bit because you know for the stars. They've typically been the team that has won more face offs but with jason dickinson and being out. And fox's missing a game or so the the face offs have been. You know we win. One night we lose the other night. We win one night. We leave the next night and i. It just needs to be more consistent so that we can win more of these games. It's definitely true this another place that we talked about before the season started like. That's where we're gonna miss tyler sagan like last season we want base off pretty much. Every night we would have to suck pretty bad to lose their face offs. When when we had tyler teigen as our front dinner and roddick fox as our second best face off guy. So i think that's definitely spot where we're getting hurt and i feel like now. People are just kind of stepping up because again we don't have enough. We don't have enough sinners but people are stepping up and they're doing really well so so to to that point. The what seems to have worked really well is because of the because of that lack at the center spot right now. It's because of all the injuries that we've had to deal with. Jamie benn has actually stepped up in that center spot and he played a lot of an he actually did very well on the draw This evening Let me look at the stats for this He was fifty eight percent in the face off. Circle that so. That's pretty good. And honestly you know a change of scenery for him off for the left wing side and allowing him escape the full width of the of the rink. That full you know for with. I think it benefited him. Alive on can't hurt so he can't play any worse than he has been recently. But you have this game. He played really. Well you got you got two assists. I still think he's not playing to the full potential that he can. It just feels like sometimes you just makes the lazy plays. I don't understand why i know. Some of it is like that's kind of the way he plays the puck he makes nonchalant kind of plays but it just seems really lazy recently but i mean worked out tonight. Got two good assists should have scored a goal instead of having an assist. But i get stoned. That was a great save. Regret saving ended up not mattering at all. I know that. I hate when that happens in. Especially if you're lincoln. And i mean he gave it all he could in the his defense. Just did not show up to this game tonight. So kudos to that second air. Was it the second goal or was it. The first goal that was a hint skull so was the first goal was the first one. So i mean great. Save back but rope a would not be denied and you know it. I'm gonna backtrack on ben a little bit to be honest with you. Because yes he's not the Yes he's now making him on the let me finish. Let me finish. I'm to finish. But anyways he has he has played better especially the past two weeks. And you can't expect him to be the jamie benn. he was when he was in his mid twenties. I think we need to lower expectations at that and yes the cap hit is very egregious right now because it is what it is but it almost feels like we're paying him for what he did rather than what he's going to do. So there's this there's this thought among you know nhl gm's and especially the old gm's compared to the young gm's John hanke versus jim. Nill off morello. Lou in jim nill are going to pave the guys for what they've done so they're going to get those big contracts after they've succeeded especially when they share their points. Okay so those those big offensive players when you look at john tanka. He handed out these giant contracts to players that he expected to more later contract. So right now it may seem like a really expensive contract but later on it would be a really good cap hit because the caps going to go up right will. The cap is not going to go up for the next two years so it looks really bad. That john champion did that. And honestly i think that is the right way to do it. The way that. Jim nill and lou lamoriello do it in. It seemed to work for this earth because we haven't been in a lot of captured over the past six or seven years. That no has been the gm. He's been very mid with watching the cap in looking at okay. Will this come off the books in an we can pay this guy so like mira skin is going to get paid this off season. And there's a couple of guys there are going to get their salaries off the books this year. I don't see them returning but What are your thoughts on. That does all that make sense or is that just crazy. It makes sense but just we can be fancy like yeah. Benz playing better. Ua but like the day he may he may nine million dollars. He's one of the highest paid players in the league and he's nowhere near the top of scoresheet not even close not even not even went hawking not anymore at least i mean. He's talking about look at connor. Mcdavid you look at mitch martyr. You look at eric's okay. If you wanna talk about terrible contracts erik carlson you'll get these guys. That are i mean. Look at the two goaltenders The two big goaltenders look at florida. Borowski is making ten million and then he hasn't been playing well trigger has outplayed him. So you could technically say that's a bad contract right now and they when you look at a carey price. Gary price has not been the carey price for a while. Now and he's making. I think ten or eleven million dollars so i i think i've been for a while because we can have been bashing ben a lot and you keep bashing been if you want to. That's up to you. But i'm going to back off on bashing ben because i hope that this move to center going to help him and you know maybe realize its full potential. He's seventeen better seventeenth. What salary okay. That's still pretty high. And he is the highest paid dallas. Start knowing it might actually like a hundred thousand higher. Okay so but still i. I think a layoff jamie benn for a little bit and i think he's played excellent the past two weeks especially he. He's starting to contribute offensively more yes. He only had two goals and two assists in thirteen games. But we talk about the cap hit in. That's always focused on we. We don't know what's going on behind the scenes in how he's leading this team or the other things that he's doing you know physically. He is dominating. You don't have to pay. I'm million dollars for that. As you say your head. You're not paying nine million dollars for that. So i'm saying need. Let's tom galati on here and see what he says. Hey tom we're spending nine and a half million dollars on a player on your captain feel about that. So i'm gonna jump off of that for for a little bit but anyways Like we started on face off in. We somehow ended on with demon. Been anyways back to face offs in this game Tonight the stars completely dominated the face off circle even better than the blackhawks did on tuesday. So we won fifty eight percent of the faceoffs compared to forty two percent for the chicago blackhawks so that that needs to be a staple in the stars game and especially when You know we're on special teams either in the offensive zone or in the defensive zone and that showed in this game tonight absolutely Another thing that we got mentioned is the fact that the the stars dominated the special teams tonight. Not just the ultimate thing. Yeah and the two things we constantly talking about through this whole season we dominated and because we dominated it. We won the game. The power play has looked much better over the over this road trip. I don't know what what's happened with it but it. It seems like they know what they're doing. It seems like there's a certain there's certain kinds of shots that they're looking for and they're gonna take like mira one timer mirrors lee one timer if he's under wing or if he's on the top that's something that we can expect now from our power play muros gonna try the one timers and that's something. We didn't see last season. Which i think is one timer. Pretty good i like it. And he's he's obviously the place it really well too. Which i think is the difference between gurianov's in his garage kind of just blasted hundred nineteen miles an hour the mirrors and that was one of the things that we're talking about in the post game right with with brian and brent is the fact that you know typically the the d. at the top of the you know in the in the center up at the top of the blue line they typically hold the puck and they look for a lane and they arrested in. Well maybe we need to see more of those one timers and to your point about the power. Play the power play has been consistently kinda treading in getting better and they mentioned this tonight. But this is the first multi goal game on the power play for the stars since the seventh game of the season. So that tells you something about how stars have been playing as well is the fact that that they're even though they're not getting a ton of opportunities there still starting to you know. Get those power play goals and one other thing. I wanted to mention about the about. These powerplays is that we have seen these special teams less frequently and especially win. The stars were getting destroyed in the special teams game in. We were losing games because a special teams. We started being more disciplined. And all in even though we got less powerplays we also had less penalty. Kills that we had to deal with. And i don't know if that's discipline as much as the league telling the rats to lay off a little but you know either way same result i mean i just remember some of those games when it was just like you remember but remember the whole league was like that and then at one point disease into just stopped all of sudden See was something with the rest. There's no question about that but well and how did you think about the physical. Play both of these games because there is a i mean the stars thread of hits and you know honestly so did the blackhawks. Normally they don't throw as many hits but the stars through over forty hits in both of these games this week. Yeah and in that kind of makes makes you wonder. Maybe that's the way you can kind of. Get this team off. Their game is by throwing moorehead's easy this game. They threw a few more last game. Maybe that's why kanaan debrincat were unable to causes much havoc because they were on their butts too much like that might have to be our game plan against these faster teams when we don't have our faster guys on the ice will in. We saw how effective a physical team could be when we played carolina. Carrot carolina is a better for checking team than we are. And that's one of our forte's especially right now with all of our skill players out that's always goals is for checking the bottom third up to the point. Shoot it from the point. You know look for garbage goals and when we play carolina again. That's something that we got to be able to do. Is we got to be able to outplay them. Physically in the for check and we and we can see how well we play when we when we do stuff like this even though it today's game wasn't as four cecchi as if for lack of better term because there's no other word for the second period was yes that's true the second period. It was an in forcing turnovers because of those hits so we need to see more of that. That's kind of. That's what's been so frustrating about this season is because we see a games like this and we're like we can totally do it even with four h. l. players. We can beat teams like this. It just doesn't happen and like the second period we dominated the second period. That was probably one of the best periods that we've had on the road trip and we wanted to execute arms ru scored this of the season. Yes and we executed on it. Finally we've had great periods in the past we just don't execute on. We don't win the period on the scoresheet. When we've won it via ike check so we need to keep ways to score goals and like these weren't a of these were bad defensive. Plays to but we don't always take advantage of those either like there's been multiple times this season where the other team has had bad defensive plays. We've let them off the hook like it as a team can't score goals like us. We can't let that happen. We've got a barrier those and that's what happened tonight. Hopefully this get some some mojo for a couple of players in. We can keep getting guys who can score. And that's one of the frustrating things about the stars. It's like in a game like this where we were i mean. We were outplayed. That first period on on tonight's game on thursday i just completely and utterly outplayed but because we took advantage of the one opportunity that we had in the first period we lead the game and then from there on. We didn't have to chase the game now. i wish they'd played better in the first period. But then when you look at other games where we completely dominated the play in the first forty minutes and we could be down three nothing or for nothing and we talked about those games and so it's almost like the stars need to focus on in. This goes back to what i was saying earlier. We need to focus on the defense. I shut that down. Don't let them get the opportunities and if we do let those passes get through then we need to make sure that our sticks are there where they need to be so that those scoring chances don't happen and then we can take off the other direction and basic I can't think of the word right now. Where you go really quickly from the defensive zone and go straight into offense. I i can't think of rush now. Whatever relay or switch. There's specific word. I can't think of daggummit whatever. Okay so anyways. That's the frustrating thing about this team. Is you know they dominate in. Don't score goals and then we don't dominate and we do score goals. He scored five so anyways. Here's another thing. I wanted to talk about this apparent to me in the two games. Is i wanna talk about the play of tidal andrea. So a lot of stars fans have been really do a lot of stars fantasy. That kind of tells you right there. A lotta serves fans have been high on tidal andrea in like. Why isn't he getting more games in more ice time in all of this other stuff and i think that obviously the coaching staff knew something that we hadn't seen in it's just more egregious and more apparent right now but tidal. I put this on twitter. He needs to bulk up more. Because it seems like when he's down on the corners and he's going for these puck battles you know he's just getting thrown to the ice. He's on blood everybody and then the and then in that was mostly in tuesday in an today's game he takes to really bad penalties. Let's play this like stick between the legs and you know takes the guy down so i would not expect to see him on saturday would he think i think just now makes his way back in just because of tidal andrea. Not playing well. I think that's true. I mean i think he deserves it to the past. Few game have been pretty bad for him so a i don't think he deserves to be playing so i'd agree with that aalyah. My words bones right right in a. I'd just invert offensive player. He only had one shot on goal in this chicago series as well over the two games so it's not like he hasn't gotten his opportunities either. I mean he's he's had the chance when you know we've had no center depth to play on the top line you know or with robertson and hence or with ben and gary on off and he just hasn't made any kind of push when he's gotten those opportunities he's had a couple of flashes in the pan where it seems like oh cool. He's he's doing really well and then not much after that so i just hope that he gets his his playoff and going so anyways We got up. Because it's getting long but Robertson continues to dominate in continued to prove why he should be considered in the color trophy nomination. And we'll talk more about that on our on our radio. Show on sunday and Komo with a multi point multi point multi goal ak- able to point game the first multi go game of his career since two thousand and fifteen so great for komo and both of those shots were sick. Yeah they were awesome especially for the first one the second one. He didn't get all of it but he was there. He got to stick on it. It went in the net. So who cares. You can find a good shot that are like to see a goalscoring. Komo's that'd be nice right in one of the. They talked a lot about in the post game today. About the playoff komo cog on kalaiana was kind of a spotlight in so they've both been outstanding the during this whole road trip. They're both really good offensively and defensively. They're always good defensively but they showed a real often decide that we need. We need them to find ways to help offensively. Because we don't have the guys to do it. So i think that really helped in making this road trip successful act as we get one more point than five hundred right honestly. We may look back at the end of this season. In if we get that fourth playoff spot we may be like you know the players and the of specifically during an robertson but also the play of these veterans that are not you know goal. Scores got us into the playoffs. I mean that extra point that one extra point or that one extra game tying goal from such and such player goes through the playoffs and we can look back at this season. Say that and they've been a huge a story especially recently cog lino and komo so I think that's just about it. Chris we we need to mention anything else anything else you wanted to talk about before we wrap this up. We didn't talk a lot about but that's because everybody already knows he's amazing. He doesn't like her house. Ropy hurt. Roby's amazing i love. It was really funny listening to him on the He did an interview. Obviously because you know four points in the game and you're gonna be asked to to do immediate interview at the end of the game and he was like yeah. I played good. And here's the search. And i think saad asked him a question about know you've been in more games recently. Is your injury feeling. Better as was like when i man i'm feeling good. It's like five ten second answer Questions to answers to those questions so anyway guy this. This team just looks different places. Different one rope a hence in the lineup and robertson has been the most consistent you know player. He plays every game. And he's been the most consistent point getter for the especially the last month and a half but you can't. You can't not look at ruby. Hinson say that he has an impact. He is the most important dallas star right now at this point in this season and the season. Actually i'll i'll go as far as that. Yeah when he's on the is he's our best player. No question i mean. I make the argument that somebody is more important right now than ribbons so D- galore behan. I think we should leave it at that. And in there 'cause earnestly he's he's one of the main reasons why were even close to nhl fine furniture with ten shootout in overtime losses. But okay all right. We will get you guys again on sunday We will have our live saturday saturday. Saturday okay well we. We might do a pdr after saturday or we may just wait for radio. Show on sunday. Who knows but Either a we'll get you guys on the weekends and Thank you for tuning in. Make sure you follow us dollar social media accounts and all that jazz go. Rangers is three and gosar nor the rangers You guys for tuning in once again. And we'll get you guys on the flip side. Good night by.

Starcastic Remarks-The Only Dallas Stars Fan-Led Podcast

PGR: Tampa Bay vs. Dallas March 2nd, 2021

"Hey guys this is mike madonna. And you're listening to start. Casper marts on free. Sixty five sports radio network. Hey guys welcome back to scar sarcastic remarks along with chris. Chambers i am ryan and chris Long story short stars lose tonight by final score to nothing. We very briefly talked about it off camera here but it seems like the big difference in the game tonight was even though that there were a lot of positives that the stars could take out of this game on. Vassilev was there to save the day for the tampa bay lightning. Yeah i mean. He obviously played really good. We had a lot of scoring chances. Like at some point. Somebody has to score one. Somebody has to score a goal. It's not that heart your that's your job. That's what you're getting paid to do. And it seems like we still. It's all the same stuff that we've been talking about. And we just can't seem to figure out how to score a goal against under vasilevskiy. That's now three straight shutouts one dating back to the stanley cup. Final game six. And then the two games that we just played and we can't seem to get a goal past andrei vasilevskiy. What was one of the more frustrating things for you tonight you you were talking a little bit about the power play off camera. Yeah carro dowling. Being on the power play for two minutes and forty three seconds. Each is ridiculous like those are the last two guys out of the forwards our picked up on the power play like objectively. So who would you rather. Who would you rather see on the power. Play those literally anybody other than those guys. i would rather see camano dickinson. I'd rather see colorado literally anybody else. I'd rather see alexi ac on the power play them. I don't have to even have up there. There's no reason they should be on the ice for that long. They don't score goals. They're not goal scores. That's not their job and they haven't done it this season. I don't understand why he would even do that late. sure try it and try it for one time and they did in the first part The first tried it. And they sucked. It wasn't good at all. The only good thing was hey skit his given was the only one who could try and do anything he would. Just trying dangle into the zone and get a shot on that those. The only thing that was happening they did. Nothing it sucked. It was awful. There's no reason they should be on the ice. Yeah so it's and again. We talk about all the same stuff even though we have all these great moral victories in the stars are seem to be playing a little bit better and they've had all these grey days scoring chances. It's we can't put it in the back of the net and any any no. There are some people that are calling for the heads of the refs and stuff like that. You can't blame the rest no chance. Get our one goal. You can't live on the rest well. Even in a lot of people were saying. Oh that commando penalty was bullcrap. Okay maybe that might have not been a double minor bullcrap. These then score right. That's what i'm saying and they and it's not like they didn't give us opportunities like the refs gave this opportunities on very obvious penalties. That were deservedly. So by tampa bay retain out dowling out there for half the time that gives the power plays for so it's just it's just really frustrating to to watch this team and know that we're playing well in not getting rewarded for the fact of how we're playing 'cause you know we played great today. We did not play great on saturday. Saturday absolutely sought We even the first period when we were doing okay. We weren't getting any like high-quality chances so I want to go off on a random tangent. All that's what happens when good play the lightning find a way to win. They're playing bad that they can still grind out a win like the lightning. Don't win games one to nothing to nothing. That's not the way they play. They're going to turn off offensive team. They're gonna score goals. That's that's like they're going to keep the goals low because learn awesome awesome goalie but they're going to score goals to it's not normal for them to score less than three goals and they still found a way to win the game because they're a good hockey team and they know when they're not on that they use that defensive style and they did and they outplayed us at our own game. Good teams find a way to win. You can score one goal on a team. That's not playing well like there's no. There's no chance like we're running out of time. You gotta start winning games now. Yeah and and honestly looking at the schedule. This is not the random. And i was talking about looking at the schedule. It looks like there some teams that are coming up that we can probably start beating up on. If we're going to get back into this. These are the games in the teams that we need to be playing We've got columbus coming up. We've got nashville coming up We've got We've got some other teams coming up that we can possibly beat up on that. We should be ahead of in the standings right now. But we're just not because we've played games but The random tangent. I did wanna go on was miro heiskanen so there are flashes of the magic of heiskanen tonight. Finally like i've finally saw more than once where hey skin and had some you know. He looked like himself. Yeah i mean. He looked better on the power. Play that dalian. Carol were on the bus because he had this the only thing you can do like he tried to pass them to get something in the zone and they couldn't do anything with it at that point he's got to try and do something right like you kinda forced his hand right so it looked like he was flying several times tonight in. I we need more of that. We i mean that's how we're going to get back out of the slump. Is we become raffles for miro. Yeah but honestly he looked more. He looked better tonight than than has in the past week or so. But so has the whole team. These guys are holding shots like we talked about that too like he doesn't look awful he's got to turn it into shots to score like so let's talk about some of those shots because some of the shots that we were getting in. Hey in i think it was had a great question that he asked dickinson and dickinson kind. Went on this tangent about Under vassal eski and dixon was kind of like well. I had a great a chance. He himself did dickinson. Did and he just buried it right into the belly. Button of vasilevskiy. So it's like when we are getting those chances either it's an easy save for the goaltender or were missing missing the net completely. I mean that's true too but like the way you can over overcome that she keeps shooting like if you're gonna be bad enough to where you can't put a puck anywhere near the net. Then keep shooting. Eventually one's gonna go in like one goal game for each team should not be a hard task that he'll be that should happen even if you are having a bad shooting shooting day. Even if you're a bad team that should still be had heard bad team. That's bare minimum. And that's scary to think so. We talked about the power play. Let's talk about the other side of the special teams so tonight. The penalty kill surrendered the first goal and then they looked better after that however in the game conference we slightly talked about this bonus talking about that goal right so in practice yesterday. That's what they work done. They worked on special teams that worked on the power play and they also worked on the penalty kill and the penalty kill when they were working on the penalty. kill they. He said they got rid of the same pass. And the back door pass so he took away both of those options for the tampa bay lightning but then the the one shot that he was willing to give up was the outside chances which that's where they scored the goal from. So so how frustrating that did he say. He was happy with that shot. He was fine giving that shot up he he said that was the goal that the that's the that's the shot that he wanted to give up. Yes that's gotta shot. He wants to give up that. He's wrong like you can't allow that shot uncontested like the way that they pass it. That quickly it was bored to top two board in like that. Shot can't be uncontested if that's the game plan then. The game plan sucks. Coaching sucks. Because that's awful. That shot is is a high percentage shot. It's gonna go in a lot. It's ridiculous so let me ask you this question at this point. Are you on the. Are you hopping on the fireboat strain. 'cause seems like people are fine with that. I think that's a great idea to try and shake this team out of like again. I'm not saying it's hundred percent bone fault. Obviously if you can't score a goal then your the team played bat. The team played bad tonight. But if he's saying that that's a shot he's willing to give up and he's gonna play carro dowling that long on the power play when it wasn't working all night like there's some blame on him too so like if if not to just shake things up like i'm fine with firing coach. Something's got to change. Somebody's gotta give nevins given right now. We just keep losing the same way every night so something's got to happen so i think something's got to happen because this team is not different late. Who'd we lose corey. perry. I know we joke about him but like he's not the guy who made the dallas stars a stanley cup final team. He's not been bishop. Been bishop is driver. A hint has been in and out the entire season. Having people in. And i like that doesn't turn your team from crazy. Good to bottom of the league. Because that's where we're at right now. We're bottom of the league if you discount the first four wins when we had our players. I don't think there's a way you can go from that. Go to that bad that easily like. I think this team is still good enough to win. Hockey games what we have on the ice right now is good enough to get into the playoffs. It is good enough to get in this division. It should be not happening. It's not like we're in a tough division. We're not we're not we should. We should be middle of the pack. I mean if we make the playoffs in all bets are off. At that point rate. I feel like the right for the playoffs. When we get our is back. I think we're going to be so much better. Even if we're playing bad we'll get back to where we can win games when we have bad games but right now we can't do that because we don't have those guys so we we need to get fourth like that's the goal is to get to the playoffs that's it. We're not trying to be the best even good team in the league if we can scrap our way get fourth. Then we then. That's a win. But like i don't get this lineup. It's good enough to get there. I don't understand why it's not like something's gotta give obviously stupid coaching decisions in the past. Four games that we've talked about at length so i think a coach's a fine way to to try and change something bench somebody if you're bonus do something different but not different like playing your worst forwards on the powerfully. That's a ridiculous solution that that was a very. Can you make any sense of why he would do that. He wants to try something different like he wants to try. And put a four checking lion on the powerpoint. See how it works. And i'll be fine with that okay but once and you stop when it doesn't work but he didn't the third period he put him out there. So that's what frustrates me more than anything is. He had a chance to look at it in solid. It didn't work and he kept doing it anyway. Like what is wrong with that. It's so messed up. Well then what's the What's i mean. Honestly if i wanted to see a checking line out there. I would rather put fox komo and cognitive out there right late night. Don't i mean that would be. That would have been coming out of a lineup. Those guys that are coming out of the lineup for rookies. Going on care what. I don't get it. I don't get it. Do you think he puts a landry area. And some of these other players. Back in by. Taylor i mean i don't know what the heck he's gonna do now like why. Why don't we just bench belski on the power. Play like who cares right. I is the top power play goal score in the nhl finchem. He's making are stupid. It's dumb it's illogical in. It's dumb. Like i know we talked about. We can't talk about the coach but that's a dumb decision. That's it's tough. There's there's no way around it okay. Well jim nill has came out today and said that there is no hot seat. There is no hotseat. I mean he's not going to be fired so stimulus plan. It makes sense. But i'm on board for doing it. Okay i see both sides it. I'm not saying he should be definitely. I've saying i completely understand the reason for him being fired in a startling towards it i don't think he will but like there's definitely a great argument for it happening. Okay so what do we do it okay. So firing bonuses out of the question. That's the easiest thing to do to kind of spark a team and kind of wake them. Obviously that's not going to happen. Because that's what noah said. There's no so besides getting maybe some the landry back in what else can you do. There's nothing you can do. Honestly if he's gonna do crazy things like that. Like i don't know dude. He could keep trying crazy stuff like that. We can leave dowling in. Who's been playing good. Dowling delay andrea. Who's been playing well. Just pay him money. I i don't know in. It's it's almost like he's wanting to rely on these These veterans more in even though he called them out they're not performing so they have the shots on goal. They just didn't bury him tonight. Which is obviously what they're paid to do. But like the guys suck to like dowling. Were awful zero shots. On goal with the majority of their ice time was on the power. Play like that's your best chance to get a shot on goal and you can't do it in that's like that's about a quarter of what their is time was was on the power play and they couldn't put what on the net. So you can blame those guys but like the depth doesn't doing it either so that it's coming really nowhere is that's why we're that's why we lost like two seven and four. That's why we're two seven four. Nothing is happening. Nobody scoring so yeah. Garbage golden got a score. Yeah that's got to happen. Somebody's got arbor schools harder. Drive the net play like chicago. There's other ways to score goals than just trying to rely on skill and it doesn't seem like it's happening again in throughout this game even though they played better. It's still a team. That easy to play against like playing against that kind of star team didn't seem like an issue so i don't know where that identity is. I don't know where any of the goalscoring from the first four games is but it's just a lack of confidence at this point. I mean it's one hundred percent mental at this point. I truly believe that. It's i'm starting to believe that they suck so. Let's let's hope not guys on the roster are not bad. it's so frustrating. Like maybe they just all decided to suck. This season here knows what it feels like. So let's talk about Some of these some of these tweets. I put questions. Thoughts comments up on twitter and Here's a couple chris so at d. Butler thirty eight fifty six Was there enough improvement to build off of question. Mark i mean they did look good but dang dang it is still hard to watch them. I mean of course there's stuff to build off but we've been seeing that the past seven games that there's good stuff to build off of never do it so the right building off of anything right now like yes. They played better but obviously tampa had a bad game. Like i would say they still want ad and they still won and we couldn't score a goal. The only player on tampa who really played great would even say vasilevskiy on the other side. It talking about it being really hard to watch stars right now it is. I mean Especially saturday there. Were several times when i was just like i just want to turn this game off and not watch it but i finished it out. i don't know how you feel about this Christian and you can tell me how but it almost feels like ever since we started this podcast at least for me that i've been looking at it from a different perspective so i'm not as emotional as i used to be. I'm still ticked off. Don't get me wrong like that last minute of the game. Today i was sitting there yelling at the tv. There was one tampa bay lightning player in the corner against four stars. And we were not able to so. But i'm trying to cover. I guess because we're doing this. And i'm trying to cover it more logically but i mean what your thoughts that i feel kinda the same way i mean. I just like watching hockey. Even when they sucked. Like i was still watching them. Like i i just i love the stars. I like watching them. Play in makes me feel better every time it's journey Turn on his stars game even if they're sucking so. I like hockey. Even if they are losing more frustrating right now. Because i feel like there should be winning all right at braves con. Stanza say that right It's too early to give up on the season but realistically we might want to adjust goals for the season will accomplish. I think about this season as just not getting the good breaks. That doesn't necessarily mean we are do though that's a. That's a really smart. A twitter commentator. That's weird. Let's have definitely have definitely changed. We are no longer going to be a good team in the division. The only goal we have right now is to make the playoffs and pray that sagan and bishop make a big difference. Those are the goals. That's it any other goals at this had are out the window so forth in the division fourth division. And let's see what happens yet. Hockey's weird it and that's a good question. Asti chris will sagan in bishop have a huge impact when they come back. 'cause there or are they just going to have to kind of ease their way in. They're not gonna be able to score five goals in the first game. They think so but like if this team is still playing that bad when they come back out of it anyway. But i don't think they continue to play this because they're playing like the worst even the nhl right now. But i don't know do you. I hope so. There are worse teams. You just ask buffalo and ask vancouver right now. They're seven and four. If you exclude the first four games we got to seven and four. That's pretty awful at pretty bad. Yeah all right All right at justin smith eighty-eight while we played a great game. Is it too late for this moral victory or do they try and build off this when they face columbus same question. Yes they try but like. Yeah it's getting to be too late where your time in short season so what we need to do is we need to beat the bad teams every game. You'd need to beat the bad teams every game and beat the good teams a couple of times. What's gonna take for us to sneak into the four spot so if we can at least beat the bad teams. We're going to be good. But and hey shine out to blackout. Dallas commented our on our twitter post. A dallas yeah. I love blackout. Dallas stuff is like twitter about getting a check mark so they said at blackout dallas need goals first to dallas stars offensive roster adjustments tonight. Keep your onto out kiro in make sense of that more than kierra than the key runs apart. High can't ever write it. It doesn't make sense now. You're here you want to rest guys. Yes but like those are the guys who want to rest like kiviranta like he. He's like his oldest me easily. Be fine to go out and play hockey games. So i don't i get why but it's a stupid reason so it's it's still nursing injury. They i think i heard he might have been out because of an injury but no confirmed or not so if he was injured sure but it still remains like wiesel andrea out. Then you know like i. I really think we're gonna see delays andrea in the next game. I really see dolly and care and the bird. I'll be on the power. If they're on the power play next game like fire the coach we should win. The fans should fire the coach ryan. Chris you wanna go coach the start. I'll go fire off-farm myself all right all right. This is kind of a different thing so At alton dill's Someone who doesn't know any anything's opinion. But if sicker and needs a game off would it be that bad to see harley get some action maybe he can help fix the issues. So that's an interesting point because we talked about. You know the the defense needs to leave the offense and that's another puck moving defenseman. So do you think that we might see harley. I mean i've been wishing we saw harley for forever now. Like i think he should play more in general like you should be on the stars. I think right now but so yes. I agree but for whatever reason the stars eight prospects in want them to die in the age l. So probably not gonna see him. You know what. I'm thinking about now too but yes i agree you thinking about not to campbell. That's what i'm always thinking about. Whenever we talk about harley's not playing or delay injuries in that plane. Or give up playing the whenever i go to. What about hunka no. No conchas not. He's not real. I don't think being calm up anyway. He's not in the taxi squad early on the taxi squad. I think harleys in the harley. The harley's definitely at the age right now. He's he's playing for the texas stores because the oh l. was not playing right now. So but yes. I agree harley should be playing at hanley but the stars hey prospects in them to die in the ahl before we trade them for next to nothing and then they play good on good teams like jack campbell beliefs. Sorry your question. The starter stupid. It seems like it on several things right last one in. We'll probably close up for tonight. At logan honks white t. I think he's a. He's got a youtube channel. Maybe subscribe any anyway. He says Dallas sports has never had this low as a collective group. Tonight was the first time. I ever laughed at how bad it was instead of getting frustrated. How should i reset my mindset. Because i feel like i'm just starting to not care and not feel emotion if we lose now. Let me answer this one. Because i think we've already said this in. Its who was it. Was it braves. Yeah it was braves. We just need to reset our goals for the season. That's the answer so the at twitter answered twitter there and we just we just need. We just need to think about were. We need to get the whole stanley cup. Finalists mentality ever head. Because we're we're not that's not the same that we're not the same team right now so what we need to do is we need to go back to square one. We just need to be a decent team. We made the playoffs. Make the playoffs. That's that is the goal right. Different teams make the playoffs. If we make the playoffs then we might be able to see this season as success. Maybe probably not because of worried this because we were in the stanley cup final last year but if we just make playoffs anything can happen. I mean we've seen the eighth seeded team. Make the stanley cup. Final and give a run for the money or vice versa. Even win the cup we. It's happened so i think that's the answer to that question. You just need to get the stanley cup. Finalist mentality. ever our head think. We're not a good team. We're not a good team. Look at the positives of what we're doing right now. Build off those and don't expect winds at this point. Yeah i'm with you wins. Don't expect winds because honestly if you expect wins. It's going to hurt more. Sorry you got anything to add to that. Yeah we're going to try and sneak into fourth place and look at what percentage points because of games played whacked looking reports percentage in. We wanna win half our games. What's our points percentage right now. what are we in. Points percentage wise six six. So that's that's either way you look at it and so bad but it's not as bad. Yeah it's not as bad okay. Starts playing again on thursday against columbus. Maybe we can actually start. Be beating up on some teams if if there is any time to turn this season around these next stretch. A games is going to be the biggest time to do that. Because we've got teams that we should be beating coming up. We should you know bbc.

Post Game Reaction 2020 Stanley Cup Playoffs Flames/Stars Game 4

"Hey, everybody. We won't ignore you anymore. We were just talking stuff for a second welcome back to star cast tech remarks. Should I cut that out? Got that? Joe Of. All the ageless point. I don't know necessarily about ageless by. Long Grass. And he's playoff hockey plan really well. Jim nill is looking like a genius right now in the. Immediate for pretty much the whole regular season. So it's about time. Yeah. Yeah. I mean it was I. Think it was understood that we were looking to pick up. For Belsky and even Harry for the postseason like. We were going to have to drag them there but once they got there have so much experience that I I agree planned all along was there for playoffs maybe they do something during the season, right? Welcome, back to star cast remarks. This is Ryan and we got Chris Anzac joining us on the broadcast again how you guys doing doing a lot better than. After. The storms lost the last one. Yeah. No Joe Stars Stars winning has made a pretty good mood I'm good to. Good Input Christian. Streets. Stars one yesterday with a final score of five to four in overtime with about five and a half minutes left four and a half minutes left. and. It seemed like claim Berg scored the goal but hours later they came out and we actually figured out that Raji Lov is the one that tipped the puck into the net. So good for both of them. anyways. We got a lot to talk about with this game I guess. We just have to hope that the score tomorrow will be four in game five. Yeah. That's the magic number which is. Completely. The opposite of what we thought this was going to be going in right like. If you're to tell me that the the stars or in a play games that would two five four I would been laughing one not believing. Yeah. I would have thought that loose both so ten than those two games but sandwich a shutout, right? Yeah. No. Hen Goals. And WE LOSE WE LOSE Ten goals in two games, which is not what we were expecting at all. So let's just hope I guess the magic number is five we'll get to five. Well, it's that could have been so much more. I. Mean Sixty two shots on goal on paper it like look at the game you like Oh Talbot let and five goals. Yeah. But he say what is that fifties? This island. Yeah. Some crazy like that. That's insane. Slaves defense is awful. They are bad. They're the worst defense in the West I. Bet well, and the thing is that coming in I thought that Calgary actually had one of the better defenses. I really did. Now. They're no. They're no Saint Louis now but their defense. I thought I thought it would be better than that and maybe they're missing travis him in tight much. But you would think they'd do a little better I. Didn't think that we would be scoring five goals gaming. Like. And now it's more a knock on the stars offense than Ben. appraised. Calories Steve But one thing I've noticed which I don't know if you've seen the same things in the game it seems like Calgary's like the top of Calgary's defense does not pressure our our top defensive airing like they don't really pressure they'll do whatever they want and they just Have, you noticing that same thing? We're getting up in the offensive I feel like we have a lot of space in. Our demand are definitely moving around. Well, I think we mostly saw in the third period there because that third period we were just on slotting them I. Mean it wasn't even close. It kind of looked like they tried to pull a a word in the third period like we're not gonNA play right into goal. So that's kind of what it looked like to me but even before them, they're just like they. Are Our defensive? Defenseman, so much space up at the top, and you don't want to give Klingberg Hey, skin and space. Jaime Garcia now too right. Yeah he's coming out of his own to he's he's pretty I think he had an uncharacteristically bad game is yet specifically penalties but you know that aside I mean really we haven't really seen Dow alive and I think he's kind of playing that super defence asylum replacement Klingberg's really going all out offense. So that's kind of expected but but they're just giving us a lot space atop and I think that's really what's contributing to a lot of our goals were shooting it from the point and it looks like we have adjusted to. Let's put three is up in front of the net now. Hey. Play. offline if we're going to rebound of our players is GonNa get like what a demand drops down into his slot, the coaching staff so It's kind of funny when I saw that power play was our our big four. I guess you could say Roger Lov. Sagan. been and then hey skin as well and four of them just. You know they they came out for that power play and then. As soon as I think it was been one the face off in Relief Sagan all three of them just went straight to the net. They're just like let's just forget about the outside and getting the the shots from the from the dots from the face off circles. Let's send them all three of the front of the net and let mirrow in their do their thing. So. It was great to see because that puts Belsky up in front of the net where he belongs and it shows when he scores three goals in a game granted one was on a rush but to of his goals came from him sitting in front of the net and putting away a rebound that's what he does. Now, this kind of goes into one of the points we. Were GonNa talk about and what we discussed. Klingberg. Quite a game. He had he and you know I don't know about your Chelsea on social media but it's mostly on the facebook groups that I see not so much on twitter but definitely the facebook groups there's a lot of people say, Oh, well, he's overrated and he needs to be traded or whatever we need some help the. Your understanding it. There's a group of like fifty stars fans who were super vocal at hate click bird so much i. don't know who these people are, but they do not know how watch hockey or what how statistics are. It's so frustrating. Yup. Yeah, and seeing the same thing. So I'm a lot more active on the run it grew going through there and I see I see a lot. They're mostly talking about you know cling. Some stupid mistakes it happens but he he has so much offense that generally more than makes up for it. I mean last night ending with a with a plus too even though he was on the ice again for the shorthanded goal. It's getting ridiculous. Here in a second mortgage. So I, think he had a great night I. Think he ended up with three assists had the gold taken taken away from him and given to ratchet off I don't know fragile Austin really made that much different somewhere when I did see the Puck we've slightly I think it was going in either way. Yeah he ended up with three points in the game and that's huge I. especially think that the main reason why you're seeing turnovers takeaways from him is because he's playing half of the hockey game he's on the ice for half the game it's going to happen like there's there's no way to stop it. In like they also use the plus minus step of course to to try and show that he's not as good as the as everyone says he is but when a players. In half the time of the game, he's GonNa. Be Out there for for on average about half of the goals against. So using plus minus possession defenseman is just in idiotic stat to us and it just shows no knowledge. So all Klingberg haters, I, hate you to go ahead Zach I almost interrupted. You know. So all I was GONNA say is I mean, might Christian say Kluber place for a majority plays for a majority of the game especially without having John's now like that's that's her that hurts a lot. Yeah, and again, we'll talk about that here in a second to. In Klingberg scores score get so many points for the team. You know he's he's shooting it from the point of lot to and kind of what seems to be happening is he shoots it from the point and if it if the top player blocks it, that's where they're getting those Russians from and where we are shooting a lot from the point. It seems to be kind of an emphasis on what we're doing right now. So that's how. Yeah for sure and I think that's part of the reason why people are frustrated as a bad bounce off. Someone's should had bounces halfway down the Ice Story. Around and Skate and then they have to go chasing grab it so. I think that's kind of I think one of the places the is he's being he's been out there on I. Think. All the shorthanded close. I think the reason the Shin Pad things are happening on those block shots because the flames are. Overall faster team. So we have guys that I think are faster than all the flames like Greyhound enhance I think those are the fastest guys on the ice but overall every flames gator is a pretty much good skater other than luggage. So they're a flying down the ice at our forwards can't catch up even if are slows down a little bit. So we're kinda leave demon out to dry especially on the power play when we've got the umbrella with one guy on top, they get lucky block and it takes a kick into the neutral zone. You're gone you got one demand that you have to be. So I got three things add to that. So I think Yan mark is also pretty quick to and side no, he had a great game and he continues to impress me. But he's still can't finish. And not because he's finished. He's liner so I'll take it. We're not paid him to score. I mean, can you imagine the just based off of what you've seen the past two games from him? If he was scoring, he could be a legit top six Ford. Top six if. We have seen this though for years at this point. Rise me. Mark is finishing. This is the guy who says that he gets paid for it. So I think we should stop complaining about it really kind of expected it. At least we're getting some pressure on the goaltender is what we should be big thing. He worked hard every game. He stretches the is. So there's a lot of benefit from it but yes, he can't score and it's kind of frustrating. Now. And then well, I forgot the second thing but the third thing. There are talking too much. The third thing is you can't take plus minus too seriously over a long period of time. I. Think it's a very deceptive stat. Over a season now, if it's for like you know appear period like five games or a single game or two or three games like that. It, it really does say something about that individual player, but once you get to like an extended. Point. A season, a full season it. Plus minus doesn't really do anything good for it. So for like. So for example, when you think about this, think about a really offensive team was the most offensive team in the NHL the Tampa Bay lighting, but go with them. I bet and I haven't done my research on this but I bet if we go and look at the stats especially from last season when they set the. Regular season wins record with sixty two or sixty, six over sixty and you go look at Nikita Kucherov. Plus minus or whatever. He's GonNa. He's I would bet it's huge I. mean the man's scored one, hundred, twenty, eight points. But does that mean he's a great defensive player. Not. Necessarily We gotta be careful about that plus minus Thing so. anyways. let's go. Let's change. That kind of is a good. Transition into our next topic four by the way. That's pretty high. That's really high. Because he scored a goal, right? So. Let's transition into this next topic, which is the ice time for the stars defensemen. And specifically for mirrow Hey skinny Zach do you WanNa. Tell us how long he was on the ice for? Yes. So Our. This. Look at both of them but severe was on the ice for thirty five minutes forty five seconds. Of Of An eighty minute game. Okay seventy. Seventy five whatever. But still he was on the ice for a very long time. And John Klingberg to thirty two minutes nineteen seconds. and. Then you compare that with our bottom to second Dune Sec sacred played ten minutes and forty eight seconds. The only played six minutes and forty two seconds of that. we are essentially. Laying with four defense, you'd been superior. Yeah to defense. In. It worries me a little bit because. I kind of looked at the end of the game, it did seem like it was starting to slow down a little bit. He was still name. My goodness. I'm saying what worries me about it though is we're having to lean on. Our top guys so much. If we don't like. It's GONNA be tough to go through entire playoffs like that. I don't I don't know how hold up it's they're good players but man, if you're playing that night in night out, that is going to be rough. Yeah. A seven game series with US leaning on those you guys is super dangerous because they're also like they're like, aren't they went into for points. Either way at least top five for points on the stars during the postseason and like. If that goes away because of them being tired and getting word down. Let's get there goes all our goals. We're going to have puck possession and we're not be able to score. Arab. You'll to play defense either so I honestly think that we should play second for doing more in which you try and trust about their in even though that's terrifying to say seeing what we see from. I think at at some point, we're going to have to wrap to throw out I mean maybe we can hope for a game that's not one by one goal and we put him out there but that's kind of what I'm hoping I. Want We have outplayed the flames I feel like in the last three games we lash winder. would. Yes. Really Sucks I would like to see us jump out to a three goal lead and then that would allow us to play second round for the. Right. Like if we are able to actually get a moderately safely because it's still not. Obviously this. But you know ever able to get A. Decent. Lead we can actually start running them out there a little bit. So Chris you. Right. By the way Mirror Hey, skinny is leading the team with eight points. John Klingberg with six must now with Fox. For statistician over here. Well, all of which are goals for Joe. PALCA. Who would have figured that whatever? Goes goes up now now that we're talking about Joe Polski just random. Statistics for you. Actually saw this thing on twitter but he is one of the oldest players in NHL history to score. A Hattrick in a playoff game. And I mean The only Dallas Stars player not franchised Dallas Stars so since they moved to Dallas. Player to score a Hattrick in a playoff game. Right insane to think about we had Madonna on our team. We had all we'll met nearly died. Yeah like we had. We had players that. You'd think would have had tricks but underperformed. Come on. Now come on Madonna, you have to score more. Umbrella Hall with his like almost seven hundred goals. Not Getting. belsky deserve the hat trick that game to best gator on the is by far head and shoulders. He really like just looked hungry. He wanted it more. That's what it comes down to well and you. And you have to go all the way back to nineteen, eighty two. So almost forty years ago when a Minnesota North Star at that point scored a hat-trick. Dinos Israeli. been while. All right So one of the last points we wanted to mention today was and I, think this is the difference in the series and why the series is tied right now instead of the stars being up three to one in my personal opinion. Anna. Specialties. Honestly it's hard hard to argue that. Well, when you look at the amount of power play goals that the stars have given up. They've they've given up one in just about every single game I. Think the only one they didn't give wasn't game three. and. then. They've given up a short handed goal in game to game three and game four. So. If we can stay out of the box and I guess, stay off the power play. We'll be fine because we. are destroying them five on five. Hundred percent destroy you don't want any specialties so we should just decline powerplays that's A. Calgary, I'd be intentionally slashing the try and get on it'll be. Just throw right right out there and be like, Hey, goes for another gold. Yeah and I've ever the two of y'all. Texan with me. And talking about when they scored that shorty. Who Was it I forgot who scored that goal the shorthanded goal. Score the score the other two. Tobias reader. Your reader. Is Three in back to back to back Games has frequent. Ridiculous. He's currently tied. Tied with the postseason record of headed goals Navo season. Well and it's the it's Radwan. But that's true. Yeah. Red One and it has. No like round half. Round. Point five, it's. Only through four games. So yes, crazy. If I'm rick bowness. I'm telling our players that they need to be way more disciplined. Kaz. I mean we scored power play goals in game two in game four, and that's great. But you know honestly, if it means, we give up short handed goals I would not have it because we are obviously out playing them five on five. I mean. So part of the thing is on. Feels like on two of the three power goal has been. Unlike unlucky bounce off of someone's Shin Pad and then. I think Klingberg's should've taken a pill the on the Believe, it is the one game to I think he should just take in the penalty. Yeah or at least give or at least just given the penalty shot like I. Think I would rather take that. The other piece of it is. I feel like a little bit is on Youtube and I, I don't. I don't rag on doping very often I. Love the Guy Dhabi's Dhabi's one of my favorite players on the stars but maybe yes, say one of them. He hasn't been playing up to up to par really what we saw during the regular season. Neither have or bishop didn't as one game the that that's what's been concerning knee Moore's 'cause. So we put the we put the stars goalie as a better goaltender in this series when we did our series thing and that is not been true. Talbot is the much better goaltender this series, and that's honestly dangerous for us because our goaltending is probably the best thing about this team. So we WANNA go. If we want to go deeper, that's what's going to take us there. It's our goal. Tang. It it's not gonNA be scoring five goals in a game. Well you know that's that's an interesting question. So does that mean that our philosophy may change for this for this playoffs I mean if we're GonNa if we can score five goals in. Any No. Do it that way as the really anything wrong with that if our if our philosophy has change to that, we're going to lose the game. So, our team has built to score five goals, every game or else he would have been doing it. All regular season would have found that eventually if our goal is not up, we have to rely on scoring five goals again, I don't think there's a chance I think Dhabi step up if we want to be one of these better James I, think the others were scoring five goals is because it's Calgary in their bad defense. I i. think another thing that in we were talking about special teams and that's a big piece of this Calgary has had the best power play. In the postseason and that was that's not just as the stars they were doing the same thing. It's the jets like they're scoring power play goals. I think a big part of it is they are fast. The question becomes does our penalty kill pick back up when we're against a slower team? I'm not sure but that's been I mean like we were saying. The special teams is where they're scoring goals. So I? I don't I don't remember as taking as many penalties as as we as we have been in the regular sees. So I think I. DO think if we clean it up a little bit, we'll see less schools against. I I would just like to see Dhabi make a couple like one of those. Say's right. It's a big saying some big saves so. Hold on hold on hold on he had that aid giant enormous save against. Good. But and I'm not saying I'm not saying that I'm saying specifically on those breakaway chances like. You got like if he saves one of those shorthanded goals in either game in either game. Three. Dame. Four. Goal going game three. It's a different game. We're not down to. Zero. One Zero and have a lot more life. Go taking. Keep on going like it's not only his fault, right but like. I feel like that's a save that we need to have made everyone. He's not playing the way he was he would have made that save the regular season. Three times in a row right? Like we can't be given a shorthand chance like that. You know every single game. But like he I do think needs to be. We'll see one of right and so all three of those going and that's what's Kinda surprised. I think y'all on Khudobin too much my opinion. No. He's playing. Great. I'm not saying he's not playing good. This just on the strictly speaking on the special teams side things like specifically the shorthanded goals like those are made in the past and that he can make. His five on five. Mike. I think you'd stop playing as well as he wasn't the regular season, but that's a podcast point for another time. Yeah I'll talk about that after he gets showed out next game of course now that I've said yes. Yes go shut was let's. All right. So all right. So last thing a last point that we've got. were making this podcast in between Games because we were too tired to do it yesterday right. I was tired. But. What are you looking for in game five? What what's a huge key to win game five in your opinion? I'LL START WITH ZACH We just touched on it but stay out of the penalty box don't don't give their. A spark. A that's that's pretty much the only thing if we can stay out of there like. I don't think they get going and then we get shut down, we can shut him down five on five. I think Calgary has been the lucky has been the luckier team this series and I think it's about to turn around and I think the stars are about to have a big blowout on game five is my opinion. So you're looking for a big Lou looks good to change. Law of averages is about to kick in stars are GonNa win five to. Five two very. Were five goals I was hoping it'd be seven one. Avalanche. So. That's the kind of game I want. Poor Darcy Camper. Man He's he's the only thing keeping them alive in that series. Yeah. I feel so bad for him. Well, that's that's another. Thing. You know speaking of which we'll probably talk about that and maybe. Maybe our next podcast we'll talk about How are picks from our predictions are doing just to see what they're looking at because some of them are doing pretty well, and then others are just not doing great at least for me. Now. anyways. Back back to what we were talking about I'm GonNA agree with Zach. On this one, we gotta stay out of the box. Got If we keep their power plays probably to a minimum of minimum of two or three Yeah. I'm a great. Yeah. You're right. Chris He's old number two for those that aren't watching on Youtube it. We keep them to a two hour. It's two or three. powerplays goodness I cannot speak. Then I think we will be fine. We will win the game and we won't have to ask Dobby stand on his head although he might and we may get a shutout. That's a big thing. Is You know I? Just looking at stats like. For Job Ben. He had a two point. He has a two point, six gold, two goals against average and I still a point nine, seven savers. So he's his savior. What he was doing during the regular season, I think was a nine to nine two at the end of the regular season but I think that he'll he'll start making. For one I think the defense is going to start playing a little bit better. and. That will allow him to have have a great game. Last. Thoughts Chris. Go Stars. Last Night Zach. Win Seven one. I have a heart attack. Let's pull a Colorado avalanche about that. Thank you, everybody. Seriously I don't know if I can handle another one. Thank you everybody for tuning in.

PGR: Negative Thoughts Continue Dallas @ Florida February 25nd, 2021

"Hey guys this is mike madonna. And you're listening to start. Casper marts on free sixty five sports radio network. Would you like to start off today. Chris or shall i welcome back to star castricone marks with ryan. This is chris. We talk about the stars sarcastically. So they had a really good game today. I'm so happy right now. They had fifty five now fifty minutes of a great game and somehow they lost. How do they lose this game. Like i literally. I at this podcast ever because i have no idea yeah. I was obviously speechless for the entire. What five minutes less. Three the whole three minutes of implosion by the veteran team volt veterans and nothing ever phases them because they went so good into covy playoffs and the all all it took to defeat the stars. Tonight was a flimsy board. Made of cardboard does it i. I'm so pissed off right now. It's not even funny i. It really isn't. I'm just i'm done with it. I'm sick of this team i've did. They can't play a full sixty minutes. They can then they won't. Yeah i mean. I don't i really don't know what to talk about chris because this is i'm if you don't stop me i'm gonna go onto epic rant going to sit here and ran for twenty nine. Oh to talk about. So here's what happened everybody. The stars played a decent decent fifty minutes there. Okay play pretty good florida's playing bad. Obviously they looked very warren down. It's kinda the star style. That's the way it works throughout the playoffs. Right and then we let do we let them beat us in frigging five minutes and we ignore ryan yelling so ottawa's playing really good to audit. Had a great game up until the last ten minutes and then we got to the last ten minutes. We'll wait. I before that we needed to point out the weird thing to happen. The matter spark the whole thing is that board like demolished. I have never seen before in my life like that looked like costco board. You know i'm saying why are we talking about the boards when the stars imploded. I'm just saying we're talking about this. When did the turning point happen. You can still say it's it's inexcusable and mention it. Because are you kidding me included. I don't care about the frigging boards at the air. That was a turning point in the game. The stars completely one hundred percent imploded on this is an again. This is another game. This is probably like the fifth or sixth time. I said this this is a game. We should have won and we didn't. We found a way to screw it up again for the sixth or seventh time over here laughing at me like right now. 'cause you knows how mad i am. Our kids are asleep. So i gotta be quiet. Okay i will be. I will be angry. Quieter star suck all those not quieter how it was quieter my in probably because talking into a microphone that much quieter. But gosh either way. Yeah after the after the flimsy collapse you gotta admit. That was really weird. Have you ever seen aboard the that. Yes that was. I'm okay after the board collapsed. Somehow florida rallied back and put on a ton of pressure which the stars already were didn't have a great for check in the beginning of the third but after that board happened there was no four check at all and then they had pretty much zone time from the last ten minutes to the end of the game. And wouldn't you know the score three goals because they're a good hockey team. They're not bad hockey team. If this is a bad hockey team sure we can fool on turtle and not for check it all and probably still win the game but the hockey team. You can't do it. See the thing was that was frustrating is that they were. They were for checking at the beginning of the third period. They realize they realized they were like okay. We were not going to go into this turtle shell and then they let that first goal. Get in and then everyone's freaking out again. They're like oh. Gosh oh gosh. Oh gosh and then when they score that second one. It's like okay. It's major pain time. We had one good one good offensive shift after that second goal they scored and then after that they just turtled again even more and they couldn't do anything with it so the star stars team is good enough. I think that's what is frustrating. More than anything is because at the beginning of the third period. They were doing the right thing. They weren't doing with the stars normally do when they blew leads. They were actually for checking. They're pushing the offensive zone time. Which is what they normally don't do. And then after the stupid board thing. They just stopped. What was the point of that. Like if you're not mentally tough enough to get around well maybe five minute pause like maybe like. Maybe not even that long late. This team is all about overcoming adversity. That was their whole story. Go going through the playoffs. This losing players left and right weird kovic stuff and no. They didn't show any of that tonight. So long term it works. I guess but short term it sucked and with all the veteran presence on the team you gotta think at some point they step up and do something and it just never happened. It showed no leadership in the end of that third period. No but that's not but that's not true. I it the. I honestly don't know what the answer is because like you said we had a we had a good game. Overall jamie benn scores a goal when jamie benn scores the goal. That's how you know that this team is doing well. He scores a goal. He does what he's paid. Nine million dollars should do here. That's a big part of his paycheck. Okay we'll say two million as for the physicality steph and seven million is for scoring goals. But the way you're saying i'm wrong but i'm not cena wrong and may maybe it's starting off. You said here's where you're wrong but they just can't seem to find a way to win a game in the an even even yesterday yesterday when we did the podcast the only reason why we won the game had nothing to do with our team on the ice. We were the dallas khudobin's we were the dallas dhabi's we read the dallas has else. That's what we were. There is no team it was. It was florida vs dhabi. That was it. Yeah and this game you see. We played all really good fifty minutes. I thought especially in front of our backup goalie when we don't have our goal scores. Two goals is pretty good when we have three of best goal scorers and the last ten minutes like like that was it that was it all the stats swing to the stars. All that happened was the last ten minutes we in like. That's got to be a veteran presence. Like we have the veteran still on the ice. Like the captain on the ice like if anyone's going to stop an implosion like that that's who it is or the coach honestly like like i feel like i'm blaming him for no reason but like what else is it coach supposed to do it except in situations like this like you can run lines in different strategies and stuff but like that's when you really need to be a good coaches to figure out how to get your going after a break like that and get them prepared for like okay. These guys have worked now because of this break. Y'all need to be ready for them to come at you and they weren't because it looked like as soon as the first goal went in there is no there wasn't a change. Nobody said to change anything when we're definitely should have been changed because you saw as soon as the restart happened that they were on top of after the first goal. That's what you call the time out rate like. Am i wrong there now. How often do you. How often do you see a when you have two goal. Lead in the other team scores the goal in its two to one. How how often do you see. The coach call timeout. And how how often are there are pauses in the middle of the period. Okay with a dentist admits it worse. That's see but see you with the pars in calling time out. After the first goal that would seem to make it worse to slow the game down even more and the stars one eight this sars wanted to grind the game out and get it done with so i don't think you take time out after the first call out of the probably yes but he didn't do it then either because he probably knew something was going to happen and he was right he that third goal was scored and then he takes if you if you feel like something's going to happen and they're going to score a goal then you should call a timeout after before that to stock and that's true and say you call the whole lot the reason you call a time out after the first goal after the first goal is because there was obviously a change in the period as soon as the restart happened. It wasn't like oh the score the first goal and they thought oh now he can win. It was a soon as the restart happened. The stars were obviously worse in florida. Obviously had a fire lit under them. That's the reason that you do it. I would called a timeout. That if i was the coach. 'cause there's obvious turning point that you can point to be okay. That's where the florida. Panthers started playing better. After that first goal you still have the lead. That's when you need to regroup them. I you disagree with it but not the first goal glosses with lots of the coaching stuff. Like the like personal disagreements with the way things are done. Maybe it's stupid. I'm not a coach. I dunno okay so set. This gets into some of the twitter staff. So i asked for rants questions. Comments whatever on twitter so D butler thirty eight fifty six or restarting to cyo bones was never really great head coach and just a really good assistant is it. Is this place like squarely on bonuses as his fault squarely no. It's not just his fault. But i think there's definitely something he could have done. But what else could he have i. I guess i'm not. I'm not saying. I'm not saying that you're that you're wrong. He's not partially to blame. But what else can you do you could. You could have put. You could put a very in there. And i still think the stars would've done the same thing i think that's just me. I think barry trotz gets his guys together and say. Hey there's been a break they're gonna come out swinging and then if you see what happened in the beginning after that break you see the goal than he would have called the time out Regrouped him that's what i think. A good coach time conspiracy time the boards was purposely broken in florida nuits lamb boards was replaced with paper plates right into the plates. The boards are made out of paper and they knew it in new. It's obviously not but yeah. I think it comes to blame on the on the leaders in partially on the coach. Of course it's not only the coach's fault has to happen for you to suck that bad in the last ten minutes so this goes back to partially what you said to boehner who has asked in the postgame interview. What wrong and he blamed the veterans. Yeah that's what he flat out came in. And he said the veterans those were the first two words out of his mouth when he answered that question and so i agree with that. That's is number one. I who the who are the veterans who are the though the veterans who are those guys the one is are jamie benn komo infidelity but then those are the three guys who were the most outstanding this game. So that's our two goalscorers. Yeah they end. They didn't do the veteran job at the end of the game. They didn't finish the game. They're the guys who were supposed to get people together and let them know. Hey something's going to happen like it's been to nothing. There is a break something very well could happen because this is a good hockey team. It's not a bad hockey team. So they know hockey they know that. That's how momentum shifts can happen because the the third period was all dallas until that point that is definitely a point where the momentum can shift and they know it. They played hockey for their whole lives. They know image of shift that way. So it's definitely their fault. And i also think it's partially bonuses fault but i understand that i think he should have done is a risky thing to do. But i just general as general coaching philosophy. I think coaches you timeouts more often than just the game but more effectively in your opinion. Now i if if we're gonna fault bonus on one thing. I would have kept the the time out for word the three to. Let's get the game tying goal kind of thing that i don't see i don't think he should've called it after two one but foley one hundred percent agree with you that he should have called it when it was too because at that point two goals and fifty two seconds. And you know. They're extremely obvious. Like yes there. Might you might be right about the whole two one. And there's a momentum shift thing and it looks like they're starting to play better but especially after two to. You need to cut the moment of the panthers somehow. Yeah that's the majority of coaches would have called a timeout exactly. I wouldn't even have been an aggressive timeout. Call right in at that point. Nothing was in the stars fever at that point. Because you know they'd played a great game up to that point and you know they played stars hockey. They played the way that they were supposed to know especially with three of their top six forwards out so but at the same time. I can't blame the veterans either because the veterans the veterans are the ones that scored. It doesn't matter if at the end of the game. They don't do their job and talking about the whole sixty minutes is to in that happened. There was late in the see. That's the thing that's so frustrating about all of this is that we can't seem to find the league win. Something really bad is going on. You want to blame something like there has to be a problem too big to blame this time. I mean i. I'll signed blame all over the place right fit. You want to blame one thing like like there has to be one problem. That's going on right now in but it just seems that it was a little bit of everything you know. That's what i always like. A team doesn't lose just for one reason right like if there was a big one they glued sometimes. Yes sometimes it is sometimes crazy but like if a team lou only had one bad thing happened in the game they probably won the game. You know so. Yeah but we can move on. Yeah auto play the three goals. Were like what. I don't know he could have done well. This this debbie make one of those. Say i know he's he's exhausted and there's no way he was going to play but but would he have made one of those three three stops. Have made one of those. You obviously can't say yes but he would have a higher chance of making that and that's what we talked about. I remember when it was. But i think it was like before this restart like darby has a higher chance of being the reason you win the game but an order just won't be the reason you lose. Remember that comparison. We made that. Yeah that's definitely what you're saying. What you're seeing here does dhabi make one of those aides in pull us out of that single handedly but you can't know for sure so it's definitely no no chance you put it on the goalie like if dhabi did that it would have been something crazy like it would have been a huge save to turn the game around or something like that. But you don't blame a rookie. Netminder not making a spectacular save when the team is falling apart right and yeah and they. That's why i'm saying. Here's here's a question. Here's a question. Is this still the this thing. This game alone is this game because the stars completely melted down or is it just complete dumb. look we completely melted down. This is not dumb luck. Like that's why it's so frustrating too. I wanted some luck. I want to believe it's done. Can't you can't but that's why it's so frustrating to us. Because it's happened to many times it's happened many times now. Well in the first fifty minutes or so good for fifty minutes. That was a great game for adele. Stars t missing three of his top scores like two goals in a game. I would be fine with but on the road team on the road grind gown. If you're a defensive team you have to lock down that win and like to to not do that. So fantastic choices come fully like it's sad as a defensive team it's embarrassing you're gonna leave each defense at team and you lose a two goal lead with less than ten minutes in the third period. That's embarrassing and this never happened last season like maybe counted on one hand. Sit that's a good point. That's a good point like we we even though we were losing games last last year it. It's we could put it to the fact that we had new new guys on the ice. And they were close. One goal games interim period. We would not go into the last ten minutes of the third with a multi goal lead and blow it all in five minutes now. The way i feel about this game is how i felt about Aren't you remember how long ago it was. But there was a game against And might have even been back. When madonna was still around it was we had a four. Nothing lead going into the third period against the los angeles kings and somehow ended up losing the game. Sixty five in regulation or might have been in overtime they. Actually it was a overtime. So that's how bad. I felt about this game in me trained to be calm in front of my own family because i'm all ticked off and everything and i explained this to my wife. Amanda i like on the inside. I'm sitting here like screaming like a banshee. I want to throw things up. Begin so all. I want to go outside and scream to the heavens. What the heck is going on but on the outside. I'm showing this comb demeanor when it's the complete opposite how i feel and it was hard to do that. Like really hard in brag about risk Slammed on my desk. So hard to i i. That was the one thing i did is it. There's five seconds left in the game and you know hey skin and doesn't get the last shot off. And then i just i just take my hand and i go on my kitchen. Table and negative thoughts proceeded from there. Negative negative proceed. That is that is the. That's that's the new catchphrase. We'll have to. I'll probably call it. I'll probably call the podcast episode. That's pg or i'll call it pg or negative interesting all right well that native proceeding. Well do you want to end it there. I got a couple more got to go through the tweets. Yeah okay we'll skip the stats tonight. Because the stat see the stars won't and they did. So yeah i i don't even care about the stats tonight. I'm not even gonna look at them. Because i know that we played well for a good portion of the game. Yeah yeah so. Whatever so villain. Dt x. victory and club for life. Yeah i know. It's all album them. All of them. column awesome. i think that's a real name. But anyways so he said there is absolutely no excuse for the last six minutes of the game. It was like they forgot that they had a game to play. I can only imagine how frustrated they are with themselves frustrated. Would i would use a different word i'd be. I'd probably use pissed. I can only imagine how pissed today are themselves. I mean i can just imagine that even with bonus you know he. He probably went in there like tortorella. He went in there and just started screaming and cussing up a storm. I mean you can't you can't lose a game like that ever in any any professionally for that matter so especially when you're dominate so badly in the beginning of the game like that's exactly wanted the game to go for fifty minutes for the players. We have young players. We have right now and for who were missing. Yes that is one hundred percent of grendel wet. We're probably ten minutes of the season and we would still play like that with that. If we had those three other guys but it would. We might have more goals up on my have more goal. But that's beside the point. We just told them out down. Yeah and like like i. I've seen people say like don't freak out we've got people injured like normally that'd be a fair reason but games this this season we're gonna have. We're twenty five percents three this season already yet. We're going to have at least two big guys out pretty much every game. I think like at the very least even when bishop kagan come back so there's gonna be people hurt every single night and that's going to be true for all the teams in the league. That's what's going to happen when you pay play so many games so close together. We need to figure out ways to win hockey games. Like this and the first fifteen minutes wordperfect. That's how you do it. If you're still guys are out in the last ten were like. I don't know how you play so well and then so awful so quickly Victory at stars. We go over to vs tampa and playoffs h. e. hockey stick. No so yeah. I don't think that's true. It's now i think getting into fourth place isn't going to be as hard as we think it is. If that's all we need like in all honestly if i think getting getting taken back i know a bunch of media. People have talked about being like making a big trade at the end of the season. So if we could actually feel that impact from those to be players coming back into the lineup. It's gonna be too late if we continue playing like this. It's all you have to do is get into the playoffs. That's as long as we have a fourth place spot windows guys. Come back in will be fun but that that is true. If we're at six when we come back we have to the and this goes back to what he says. We have to be able to at least go. Five hundred against the good teams. I'm not even considering us one of the good teams anymore. The three good teams in this division. Okay you got tampa. You got florida and then my forgetting carolina. You have to be able to beat those teams. What have we done against carolina zero for four. Would we done one for two when we should have gone to for one one we done against chicago over to and that's not even a good team. We go if we lose tampa if we lose both games to tampa were done. We're not getting in the playoffs ice. I think it's a dumb thing to sages so early in the season like yes. It would really. It's not early in this. The games we we've already played a fifteen games but the other the other thing about this is that always gary nine games left the all these other games that were playing. All of these games are divisional games. So you can't look at these games there. Two point games are four point games every young. Only you yes to gain so it's the same thing but we're gonna lose all these games. That's what i'm saying. If we lose we lose a an app we we're we. It's basically an eight point difference if we lose the next two games against tampa and just win one game back against them and then it's only a four point difference so the same thing as big games. That's not going to happen though. It is what i'm saying like layer could be. Maybe that's why it's a dumb thing to say so early in the season but because you never know tampa like the blues last season. We're in dead last in their division. The stanley cup. Okay never say they're out of You know that's good analogy. He's in there in dead last. It's because they play had less games and everybody else and they had they. There's lots of arguments against that. Why that's not a good comparison but the other thing is is that in and you said it yourself. We didn't see the stars team. Empl implode like this last year even though we were losing games. Yes that was fine. We did not see a game like this. We did not game like you did. With the last games of the season. The last six games of the season last season the stars were terrible and then what happened and then they go in. Which is finals cogan. Yeah that's what i'm saying is teams change so stuff can change the settings. Saying you're out this early in the season is a ridiculous thing to say in my opinion like no matter. What even if it's detroit like if there's any sign of life in detroit which there's not but if there's any sign of life in detroit and you said that they're out like no they're they're still so many games left to play. I don't know man and rosedale thing just being reactionary but still if it's two zero at the end of the first period Games over no chance. You're not the there's more hockey to play so even though yes right now it. Kinda sucks calmed down. There's more hockey to play. We'll talk about playoffs so when we get closer to the end. I'm right know i'm right. You're just emotional. Yes so does the other people who are emotional to y'all calm down just half a watching hockey for a little bit and be pissed off. Lose terrible games like this all right so Braves four fans. I hope i said that right. A he thinks and quote think we are at that point. Where difficult decisions have to be made. This team reminds me of a team. That missed the playoffs. Because they can't get the breaks to go in their favor. Now we i think i don't know what to say. I let me formulate my thoughts. Your we are getting close to that point right to where something needs to happen. Something's gotta give and wind. General managers feel like the team should be doing better than they are. And it's not happening. They make crazy decisions to shake things up. So i don't actually how the great right they're not. They're in fourth in. That happened like so. I don't think they're there yet. But i think they are getting closer and closer a game like this where the team implodes where i think partially like like like even use it after the second goal. How do you not call a timeout like that questionable decision. That seems ridiculous in my opinion but like gems will make crazy decisions whenever the team is not performing the way that they feel they should. Jim nill thinks this team is good. Not much changed since the stanley cup. Final i like where we're at where we're at. Yeah but k. Two things first things first some some weird person on twitter which i'm not going to quote his his name. He's he didn't post on our thing but he said it's time to get rid of bonus and go back to the run and gun offensive style that i was just like okay. That's stupid. no no absolutely not. We're not going back to the lindy where we outscore problems. And then game boy. That was fun though it was. It was fine but we were we. We were the number. We were the first team in our division. We were the best team not necessarily division in the conference and and we lost in the second round right. I think that's not how the playoffs were great. And then in nil realize that so all we have to do is get to the playoffs. Like you said. I'm saying and and you know what my prediction of us getting. Fourth is looking more and more realistic at this point for me. At least i was real. I was really hopeful for a while. Especially after that to start the season for no But it certainly look more more realistic. Although i was about columbus and it seems i was wrong about florida. That florida looks like they're going to be the third team but on the on the other side. There's nothing that jim nill can. Do you wanna bet from know from a from a team. Perspective not rash. I will agree exactly right so much. Montreal did it. And they're in a playoff spot. Okay yeah no so. I'm talking team. I'm talking to the players. Not the coach. Yes that's probably. The most drastic thing to do is fire the coach. But i don't think he's going to do that especially with the and we talked about it just just yesterday so i'm not going to go into that again but you have no cap space. You have so you have some guys who are paid a lot of money who are not producing the way they should maybe under a different system under a different system they would and we saw that with the referee you know sagan and been were scoring at will the app. Yeah i mean. I'll agree with you there. I don't think a trade would help like i think. Overall this team is good. I think we have five players out like five of our best players out which that's more than any other team like you get like. I did say like every team's hurt. I mean that where we have to find winds to get to the playoffs with our guys are but we have five of are not just five. Players by of our best players are not playing right. Now that's real bad so yeah. I'll agree that he should make any trades in like i said earlier the bishop kagan coming back as hopefully the the big trade at the end of the season that teams make to make the push to the playoffs. You know what i'm talking about. The hopefully that comes to fruition. But i agree really the only adding the only option. He has is to fire the coach which that's not realistic that data's word today that has worked for teams recently. I don't know what it is but you never know. Do you can wake up one day jim. Montgomery you'll be fired for seemingly no reason. Anything can happen in sports which is why they are all right. So i can ex- hill now. Negative thoughts continue in negative thoughts. Continue all right. I think we're we're gonna stop ten minutes ago. Easter on for another ten minutes. Oh gosh okay. Any last thoughts. Chris play better too. No no no three words. No forwards play the full sixty minutes. Five words from two to four to five play. The full sixty minutes teachers kept one right ones ready go. That's it that's all we can do but kick out all right. Oh goodness yeah. I go to everybody guys along with chris. I'm ryan You've been listening there castro. Marques thank you for downloading this episode and taking a listen.

Quick Expansion Chat

"Please welcome the commission of the general gary bettman. Bullying is okay. It just means you're a hockey ready. Welcome to a cookie. Seattle expansion draft addition podcast presented by the gmc sierra at four elliott. We have a lot to get to a lot to get through. We're gonna cram as much in as we can you know. Hopefully we'll ceo works out Short amount of time But before we get to the specifics of the draft and what's going to happen on thursday and the deals and in some cases lack of deals and the surprises. How would you describe. Wednesday was a whirlwind. There's no question about that. If the nhl wants to stop all this from getting out they have to move the submission time closer to the actual draft. And i realized that sometimes. That's a challenge. Because you've got to make sure that they've made all these picks that are legal and you've gotta make sure they've done a followed the rules but if you'll remember in two thousand seventeen we knew all the vegas picks. I think the only one that was late was chris. Thorburn who was vegas picked from the jets. Think that was the last one to get out but we knew all of those picks earlier. You're the other thing about that. One was it was the night after the h. l. awards right so we knew all the picks but all the media was there. The hockey world was there. I think. Seattle and the nhl did the best they could considering just the overall restrictions of life right now. That vegas thing was a huge party and everybody was there. I that's what everybody's forgotten is that we knew everybody who going to be taken. The surprise was just who showed up right. You know when flurry walked out and things like that. I just remember the big ovation. How excited the crowd wise. So i mean the only way the nhl is gonna stop. This is they're going to somehow while first of all. I hope we don't have another expansion anytime soon. But secondly you're gonna have a fine to have have to find a different way of proving like maybe what you don't do is you say okay. We're gonna find five players who we find out well advance or being taken or they're geographically close to being taken or we say you guys are the only ones that we're going to know and then maybe thirty minutes before the show you get a situation where everybody else is told Oh this is the second in two thousand seventeen. I remember players complaining to me that it was all getting out and the same thing happened today that some people don't care. Some people were really disappointed. I got more. Dm's you know. Obviously you know. Frank was the guy who broke most of the pecs but i got more. Dm's than ever today from people telling me to shut the bleep up because they didn't want it ruined the. It was a lot so the nhl has to find a better way to do this. But you know i'll tell you something. Seattle started calling teams about an hour after the deadline which was ten. Am eastern and saying this is we've taken from your team and it was getting out like it's that simple. If you give people eight hours lead time they're gonna find out to the expansion draft itself and going into more of the big questions. The big question was would seattle take carey price from montreal. The answer no kill flurry. come on down. What did the price thing ultimately come down to. I think ultimately it came down to seattle. Didn't feel they had a great picture of what is health is or potentially could be. There's a lot of frustration between seattle and montreal. I know seattle complained about it. They felt montreal avoided the true spirit of the expansion draft. They felt that they didn't really get a clear picture of what prices potentially facing. And i don't know if they would have taken him. I think it quite simply. It's pretty obvious by what they did that they wanted. Financial flexibility. Look at the lot of the deals is not a lot of term there. They went to five years to get alexi. Ac and i think that's because teams like dallas and potentially winnipeg and colorado were all over him if he got to the market dallas to resign those other teams to keep them or to go get him and i just think that seattle new if they wanted him. They had to get there other than that. They didn't take a lot of term. And the thing with prices. I just think at the end of the day with the limited amount that they knew they felt. They didn't feel comfortable enough in taking that contract because they weren't sure what is injury status is and i know that bothered them. I think they they really felt they weren't given true fairness on prices medical situation other big names at the expansion draft. Let's let's pause and have a conversation about mark. sure dan. this was an obvious one. This was the layup this was the you know polite putt for par applause after you make the pick because we all saw this coming a mile away. The only question. I think that people have a butcher data when seattle is. How long will he be a member of the cracking with all the rumors about the rangers and there was the oilers like you have a sense of the plan. For dano here. Do you think they're bringing him in. If they're flipping him. Yes no. Could you not see that. I know now first of all i think this was a very emotional period for giordano and he kind of admitted that when he spoke to the media after the event on wednesday night. I think he was hoping that somehow the flames and the crack in would reach a deal to keep them there. You were right. They were asking for a first third. You nailed that last week. In our podcast. Calgary was not willing to pay that you know. I think calgary hope that maybe that would change that. Maybe it was a bluff in in the last minute it would change in it. Never did i think the flames also like some teams made deals in advance like arvidsson and things like that or graves or mccann. I believe calgary talked about moving giordano. If he wasn't comfortable in seattle. Is there somewhere else he wanted to go. And other teams just weren't willing to make those deals because of their own expansion issues. And i think up until tuesday night late slash wednesday early wednesday morning i think jordan was hoping somehow it might change. And it's not that he doesn't want to go to seattle. It's just that. He's obviously so connected to calgary. I don't think jeff if you're bringing guy there and putting them through that. Are you really flipping him. I be shocked. And secondly i do think the rangers are looking for a left hand d. There's another guy that seattle drafted who i wonder fits a bit better and that's carson susie because his cap hit isn't as high you know. The rangers really have some tough negotiations going on right now there's hysterical and fox next year i know jordan house only got one year left on his deal. But you know. Suzy kind of fits a lower number. I'm not convinced. Rain was getting traded. I think the rangers are looking for a guy who fits his profile. But i don't know are you bringing that guy all the way in there to flip them. I'm i'm not convinced of that. And francis said tonight what a player had bet me and that is that he's a good chance to be their first captain Surprised that there were no deals before this raft. There's one at least it's tyler pit lick. No no sorry sorry. Sorry no trades heading into this draft. Yeah will be trade but after the selection has already been made and we'll find out about that thursday afternoon after one o'clock eastern and pit. Lick is probably calgary. But i think philly's in there too but yeah i mean i am. I think we all thought that there would be some well. First of all francis said the teams were better prepared for at this time. But i'm curious to see where this goes. I'm also still wondering about free agents like i wonder. If there's like the one guy is you know. I've been on for a week now. Jaden schwartz. i think seattle really had interest in yup and they had a pretty serious negotiation with them. I wonder if that's still turns up to be the case down the road. We'll see but i was surprised. There weren't more trades. We'll see does that see i. I was surprised that it and i have two questions about it. One is that a reflection of how general managers felt coming off vegas expansion where they were much more aligned with. Just take the player that you want. We're not making any more deals. We already handed you a stanley cup finalist. Once we're not gonna do it twice or has you mentioned the first and the third prices just too high. While i think there's probably a combination of both but also if you don't think you can make trades you can't walk yourself into a cap problem if you look at some of the expansion selections there are guys who are not going to get you into cap trouble coal in from vancouver for example alexander true. He's not gonna get you into a cat problem. From san jose gavin beyreuther from columbus nathan bastion from new jersey carson. Our ski philly had a lot of guys that could get you into trouble carson torrance kitty. No vantage from the capitals. I think a really good pick. But they stayed away from dylan and scholtz for example. So that's what i think it was. Some of those picks were about to is. If we can't make deals make sure we don't lock ourselves into a problem. Well that's an interesting point that we should get to hear. It seemed as if listen ron francis. Talked a lot about having cap flexibility. And even though he's been given the green light to let the salary cap act as a magnet and suck as much money upwards as possible. You know fifty two point. Six million dollars is what these players today cost at twenty nine million dollars in cap space remaining this all according to cap friendly. This is ron francis. True to his word is not yes it is. We cannot column aligarh and that leads me to wonder what still could happen in. Free agency Mentioned schwartz you know what else could be there. You know where they're really thin. Is there thin at center they are. You know renault reported tonight. That yanni gourd is going to be out for the start of the season know. I'm not convinced about this. Giordano deal but i do think. They've talked to the rangers about strong. I do think that's a guy they've talked about. Does that mean filipino. Or something like that. Are they thinking about offer sheets. I mean i doubt it but you never know. I think it's going to be interesting that they've got a lot of room to do a lot of things and that's the position that really stood out for me is center of all the positions. I think they're thin at. It's that one We've talked with us being the goofiest and perhaps richest free agent situation The nhl is seen in quite some time in the off season. If you're gonna hit into a summer like this whether you're an expansion team or not you want to have the most salary cap space possible Like did you look at these pictures. And say i guess you're sort of already winking at this. You know what let's get this over with. Let's make this as as painless as possible from a salary cap point of view and then let's go shopping and there's two big names out there. We can go shopping to try to get in our basket. Having looked at all the players that got picked. It seemed as if that was a deliberate strategy. No question i like their d. yup de looks good. I actually don't mind their goaltending. If they're all staying. You know the one thing about the cord. That's really interesting waiver exempt. So they've got some flexibility there in their third position I like that. Pick by the way you and i talked about this last year. The beginning this season someone the organization to the beginning of the year said. Don't be surprised the if If ultimately joey accords the best goaltender in the ottawa senators organization. And they kind of chuckled. A little a said no. I'm serious this guy is good to me. That's a sneaky could pick by seattle. That's not gonna get a lot of headlines. Was there one and perhaps the answer from his carolina. Was there one team. You're surprised by the pick from seattle. Because morgan geeky over players like jake. Bean to me is more than an eyebrow raiser was there one team out there. Few the assad. That's an interesting choice. I didn't know they'd go that direction. Well when i heard beyreuther that was one of them. Just because i definitely didn't know they were going to go in that direction. You have kevin stenlund. Yes you did. Okay i thought. John quenneville. I thought they might take the door of so. Quenneville from the blackhawks was another guy. That kinda surprised me a little bit. Hayden flurry didn't surprise me. I i. I wasn't shocked at all. I know what the kings i really liked. The curtis mcdermott pick. But some people thought they'd pick Calc lake so i was. I was kinda zeroed in on that. But i like mcdermott a lot. Like you saw dave paxton talk about team. You know mcdermott pretty good team guy. He's very tough elliott. Yes really really tough hockey player. yes he is. What did you make of the jordan. Abberley selection. I think they really wrestled without one. He could've gone. Bailey coulda gone bellows. Yeah i thought they really wrestled with it. You know balian and have the same term. there's a little bit more money on On abberley as opposed to bailey. I think but i heard they really wrestled that one just to figure out. Okay which of these two do we do. We want you know. I think the allens are going to be interesting. I know how much lamelo loves rumors about his deal. I'm about as guys. But i know there's there's some teams wondering if they're going to be able to fit bo villi there with everything else that he's gonna try and do. That's going to be a situation to watch. I think. I think the other. Big surprise is larson. I again jeff. I've said a couple of times. It really looked like this deal was going to get done and i spoke to another player there today. After that got announced that he was going to seattle at basically the same money they edmonton was willing to pay. Its not like the crack and a blue the other side of the water here and you know they just said he was a guy looking for a fresh start you know. He's been through a law. His father passed away and how emotional that was for him. You know cleft bomb leaving. They said that was a bit of a factor to bite. You know one of the players said to me that they just wondered if he ever felt comfortable they're like going to edmonton in that. Whole maelstrom of the taylor hall deal and all of the one for wind jokes and and things like that. They said to me that adam larsson never felt comfortable in edmonton because of the way he got there and they just think that with a way it started and and cleft bomb and the family challenges you went through that it was just like you know what it's time to go do something else that would make sense. And that's one thing that we don't talk about enough when your those two and their performance were married for a long time. Who's going to win this deal House larson playing measure. That off against taylor hall as ridiculous as that might be. Because one's a defenseman wanna left winger. It did happen right and listen. We've seen it. We saw was su ban and weber like the high profile ones. This is what happens and we never consider what that does to the player who's considered the inferior of the two. We never talk about what type of mental grind. That puts you through like i always wondered. You know what happened. You know what went through the mind of Of tom kurvers in toronto. After that deal and after you know look at turned into You know. Tom kurvers for the draft. Pick that turned into scott neater buyer like that could not have been easy for the late. Tom rivers at all. That must've been awful and we never consider that. We never considered it. I remember when i covered the montreal. Expos it's spring training one year. It was the year after. They traded pedro martinez and one of the pictures. They trade him for was tony. Armas junior at locked. I didn't interview with him. And oh i just remember him looking at me during the interview. Singham i'm going to have to deal with this all the time other deals around the nhl other stories around the nhl right now. We'll start with hall taylor hall. We just mentioned him with that tattooed trade and now adam larsson has left. He's member of these. We should get the compensation here as well. Seattle crack adam larsson. Seattle cracking jamie alexia larson. Four years for av alexia. Five years for point six by the way do not feeling that alexia leaving almost and i know you're gentleman g you don't to take things personally but they feel like this one might personally hurt. Jim nill i always got the sense that he really loved jamie alexia. They brought them back. Remember after he went to pittsburgh thr- autumn back had great success held onto him at deadline. Winnipeg was pushing hard. Thought it was going to get done. Loved the guy off to seattle thought on that one. They almost trade him at the deadline. There was a lot of interest. Like i said. Winnipeg colorado dallas themselves. They obviously really liked him. If you're going to get outbid you're going to get outbid. It wasn't like dallas didn't try here. They got beat by a big offer. That is offer. Okay taylor hall. And the boston bruins. What's the latest okay so at one. Pm eastern the freeze lists I think the first deal we could see down is barkley good role. That one should be announced on thursday taylor hall and boston. They're working towards it there. I think there's a hope that that one gets announced on thursday times. Six ish zakheim in. I think that's gonna come down to does toronto make trade at least don't have a ton of picks they've trade a lot of picks they might wanna get one back from edmonton by hyman was in edmonson on wednesday. Like to me if they're gonna make a deal with the maple leafs. It's an eight year deal and it could be announced as soon as thursday. It's a seven year deal that probably gets announced on the twenty eighth. That's kind of what we're looking at here. And i think it's going to come in the total dollar amount. I think is probably gonna come in somewhere around. Forty million give or take a little bit if it's an eight year deal. I think it's gonna be fortyish regardless of whether it's eight or seven. That's a whopper of deal for zach. Hyman and we said last week in toronto went to eight years. But i don't think the av is where it's going to be here even just like looking at the career and time in the nhl like he'll go from playing with austin matthews to playing with connor. Mcdavid whatever he did in a previous life elliott blossom. He must have done a lot of good things to deserve that in this life. also mike smith. I believe chris said it is two year deal chris. Sit around two million. I think i'd heard maybe two point two five. But i tend to believe chris around two million i. I wonder if they're going to do something that we're not seeing on defense yet. Free agent or trade. I don't know but they've made the one move. I could be totally wrong about this. But someone said to me that they think they could be. The draft is on. The horizon are round on friday. Two through seven on saturday and then next week of course is the free agent extravaganza designing season on the twenty eighth. How much activity do you expect around the draft. And we've had we've had a lot of gm's talking aggressively for a longtime here now and early when that happens you get action at the draft. Would you expect well. I think that there will be. I mean says jones. Jack eichel those are a couple of names and you know someone said to me you know normally at the draft. It's the last minute it's the deal at the last minute. But he felt that there might be some teams. That wanna go early just because this year's draft is such a crap shoot as you know that they might want to give themselves a bit more time to adjust if they have to move positions seth jones. I still wonder about seattle. Somebody was saying to me that they think chicago is still in there. And they're trying to find ways to do it without including like a doctor debrincat like is there anything else. They can do Not including those two particular players. But i think that'll be big over twenty four to forty hours and so we'll be eichel last week. I said that you know. I i thought or whenever the last day we was we did the podcast that some of the teams were out. Will someone said to me today. That maybe a couple of those teams might be edging back in the other thing too is calories. Got a lot of caparo now. What are they going to do with that she. I always wondered about the market. I wonder about that marketplace and You look at bradsher living how listen we understand. The giordano was upset. Bradsher living was upset as well. You would imagine calgary flames fans Could use a good news story right about now. They just lost their captain top defenceman norris trophy winner etcetera set the tone culture conversation. All of it. I would feel that. If i'm brad tra- living i need to do something here. I think that's the most dangerous thing time you're in when you feel you need to do something. You agree with that. By the way i wouldn't know i hate that feeling. That feeling of i need to do something. That's when you walk into a disaster. That's when you take yourself and you know you flood your own basement because you think you can fix things. So calgary an interesting team Seattle interesting as well. Plenty of cap space. Plenty of opportunity. We have not heard the last this summer from seattle crack. And thank you very much any other teams as we wrap up this quickly Post expansion pod any other teams that keep our eyes on other teams to keep our eyes on minnesota definite one. I think they want to do things. Still surprised. cabinet didn't go. I was but they must really like susie florida. I think florida's trying to get some extensions done when berg bannet ver he and possibly even barkov. I think they're trying to get a lot of their business done. Lamelo no question about it. Talk briefly abo- pavilion. I think those are the teams that really stand vancouver. I mean they're trying to make some moves no question about it. We'll see what happens okay. So we're gonna finish up the pod. There there are more things on the horizon in the nhl. We just mentioned the nhl draft will join you after that at some point on the weekend But wanted to keep this one brief. Keep this one quick. A lot of things would change on thursday after one o'clock eastern and the tree freeze left's this might be a record. Twenty six minutes. I think this podcast clocks in. That's that's a record for these too wordy gentlemen but i'm pretty sure that ammos happy he doesn't have to edit another ninety minute monstrosity. Taking us out today victoria. bc based drummer and songwriter. Best known as the drummer for old soul rebel. Michael wilford upcoming single rattle. My bones will be released in the fall of two thousand twenty one and with live music beginning to make a return. You can find him.

We'll talk blues we'll talk. Nhl trade deadline which is a month away the blues fall last night In la to the kings scott burnside of the athletic coming up in just a few minutes cardinals continued to roll along so busy times.

Well it's great to have scott burnside with us as we talk a little hockey of course if for some reason you are not already over and subscribe to the athletic at the athletic dot com. Follow scott on twitter at overtime. Scott be. what's going on man. what a what. A gear removed from last march and sports evaporating into the ether. It is as the nhl mba rolling along march madness spring training. What's happening it. you know. Honestly it's like for a lot of people say there is a certain below factor to what's going on the last year. And i always have to catch myself when i'm trying to do a time reference and when you think about the playoff bubble in the you know the bubbles in toronto and edmonton where we saw the the final two rounds plague of the stanley cup playoffs and the draft after that which was in october which throws everything out of whack And of course this season with fifty six games starting in january it. You really do have to remind yourself of sort of the distortion of time. You know as we as we look at what's going on with this. Nhl season which is now the at the midpoint and weeks and counting lesson for weeks now to the trade deadline which is always you know for me that that line in the sand once you get to. The trade deadline that rushed to the playoffs in really is truly distract. Run but this will be an unusual trade deadline period with the divisional only play and restrictions on the border going into canada. So lots of lots of uncertainty in lots of of Sort of uncharted territory. I think for a lot of nhl teams as we. Head towards april twelfth trade deadline will talk And a moment about a great piece that you have at the six. Nhl trade deadline deals. I want to see happen. You can also not subscribing jump on for a dollar per month right now at the athletic dot com. I'm wondering scott as you mentioned the bubble and we get ready Sports fans for the ncaa tournament. Your take on what that will do to the quality of play and you know coming out of the nhl bubble last year the nba. Bob i heard a lot of mba players. Talk about and the numbers prove. The quality of play was was up at a level that really of course benefits from not having to travel nevin the same sidelines during games. And you know Just there's routine is challenging that because you're isolated but there's routine what you see with the nhl in terms of having consisted ice surfaces not having to get on planes late at night fly in for some western conference teams fly all over the place. How did you see that affect or impact the quality of play. And do you think there could be a trickle effect and other sports like in march madness beginning this weekend. I am curious to see how the How the tournament goes how it unfolds it. That's a little bit different dynamic of course because it being one and done and so the one hundred percent is already in place there. I think it was. It was interesting to watch the with the nhl bubble in the way the the established it in in terms of the plane round And then the round robin so the teams that were of course. The top of the standings of the at the time of the plo at the time. The pause didn't have to go right into the best of five playing rounds. Of course saint louis one of those teams. I felt i think. I think it was hard for a lot of those or some of those play in teams or sorry the round robin teams to get the urgency up. I think we saw that with washington capitals Who looked very flat when they got to the traditional for of the playoffs and were beaten badly by the islanders. I don't think saint louis ever really got into a groove in losing to vancouver in the first round. I think it was hard for some of the Maybe and maybe teams that were more veteran. Had had some success last couple of years. Like saint louis in washington the the previous cup winners in nineteen and eighteen respectively. It was hard for them But in terms of the actual play. I think for me what it wasn't talking to the players and coaches. The key was to do. Find that internal motivation because without the crowds and especially in playoff off the environment into normal. Nhl playoffs building. I think it's like unlike any other. In pro sports it's just that it's so dynamic it so compelling and whether you're visiting team the home team It can drive you forward if you're the home team the fans are booing you. It can cripple None of that was there. So i think that was the interesting part. How how did teams like tampa towards went on to win the stanley cup dallas which went to the the final for the western conference. How did those players find the motivation internally without that external crowd noise and the buzz of being in your own building and knowing what was on the line i thought that was really interesting and i thought the quality for the most part. was was excellent. I thought the hockey was excellent And i i don't i. I won't be surprised if we see a very high level of competition at the at the tournament. Even though will be in a similar kind of bubble. I think the closest thing really to the stanley cup playoff scott and that atmosphere is probably march madness. Because you can be a blues fan. It could be the first period of the first game of the first round. And you can still feel like you wanna puke all my guy. We're done just because of the urgency of every shift like the first inning of a world series game is even game. Seven is still the first inning right. And right i think that if there are kentucky fans in the building and how states plane drexel drexel's close. They're going all root for drexel and you'll feel that into building. We're not gonna have that this year. So yeah it'll be it'll be interesting. I guess to see from an emotional standpoint how that how that affects things and how that affects the underdogs. I guess as well. Yeah well i think you have to. You know his time bussan. And i know that when i talked to two players and coaches and staff were there. It's it's hard. I it is. There is that sense of isolation in it. Especially remember talking to zach with gordon Defensive from the tampa bay lightning during the bubble And he had been you know he'd had a tumultuous been buffalo is contracted been Basically negated by the sabres and in the ended up signing just before the trade deadline with the lightning in a young family at home in minnesota Waiting to see what was going to happen and the fact it was his first ever time. The plastic veteran player and not to be able to share that on a daily basis with his family was really hard. And i think There were all of those kinds of dynamic some whether it's a young family. Maybe you've got you know an illness at home war elderly parents all the things during this pandemic that can weigh on you. When you don't have that contact on a daily basis or that regular contact again that goes to what kind of support system. The team has in place in the bond within each of those teams is going to be challenged especially as you go deeper and deeper into that term because The deeper you go the longer you are away from the reality of of your world at home wherever it is and especially now with more and more You we get a sense that things are returning a little bit to a piece at a time towards normalcy but to be in that bubble for that period of time you'll be removed from that it will write. Its own mental challenges. No question about twelve said you can read scott's a piece on the half dozen deals that could happen by the nhl trade deadline were a month away. And as you alluded to or deals you want to see happen as you alluded to scott an interesting wrinkle with divisional play and some of the realignment that we've seen as we stand right now in the middle of march Where do you think. Blues stand in terms of navigating some injuries in terms of their their cap space Do they need to see the next month. Develops just if you were buying or selling stock right now in the blues at this point would you buy seller hold a. That's a great way to put it. I think i mean the the blues are in sort of a hold situation. Although i i would sort of lean towards buying if if i'm doug armstrong the jam the blues and i rarely pretended i am doug all occasionally i do but most of the time. I don't pretend to be. No one would tweeted earlier. It would come out of nowhere and catch everyone off guard exactly but you know what i you know. I'm sure that there are some blues fans who feel a little bit Uncertain the that the blues are at the mid point in four in fourth place. I think a lot of us imagined there was going to be a lot more separation at the top of the west division. I i think a lot of imagined that it would be a very close battle with vegas and colorado in saint louis As the top three teams and that they would distance themselves pretty easily from the rest. That's happened that way. Minnesota's been really good surprisingly good colorado not as dominant as a lot of people thought and the blues had some ups and downs. You haven't played very well at home And i think a to me a a team. I saint louis. You have to temper all of that because this is a team that knows what to do when to do. In spite of the fact that i didn't think they were. They were really motivated or not fully engaged in the bubble last year You go back to nineteen so you understand this is a roster that really does understand the the ebbs and flows of a long playoff run and all kinds of things. I think there are. You know i'm sitting there. A playoff team and their injuries have been any issue right. The they've had critical parts in another lineup. Course missing vladimir tarasenko until very recently coming back from I think it's his third shoulder surgery to miss him for the first half of the season. You've had golden break. Oh and i'm not sure people understand how important golden west to the stanley cup. Run two thousand nineteen And certainly since the retirement of djabel miester kobe. Broncos is a huge part of what is going on with the blues and of course with alex Going to Vegas in the offseason. So his injuries in issue. No rob thomas being out So it lots of issues. And i think they've taken torey krug some time to find a comfort zone for him since coming over basically to fill the void that out tr- angelo created when when he signed with vegas so there's been some issues there But i do like this team. I think they're well coached. I think i think there is an understanding of what needs to be done there. So i you know they probably were. A lot of people would have expected them to be in terms of separation from you know not being in the playoffs But but i like. I like so much of this team. You're the guy that i just. I'm so impressed with a got a chance to spend some time with them. During the two thousand eighteen playoff run in with is david perron. Yes oh my god explain. Why only nine points at twenty eight gave a great story and just the best guy ever to is so you know again. I think there are probably areas of concern to me at the point With this team in their history. It's i would put them very sort of moderate to low level of her. That's my assessment. Well a before we wrap up. I'll ask you about the deadline. And you know it's it's interesting to think about The trade deadline and what it can do organizations but players to and you know peron will say and and be open as you know about how tough it wasn't edmonton and what getting traded to pittsburgh and getting to play with you know some of those guys and then getting traded to anaheim getting to play with ryan gets laugh like what that did for his his career and then did i think for the blues when he came back so there are some big names in your piece you have four teams in the west including an intra division potential trade. You'd like to see. I won't give it away. Go subscribe at the athletic dot com. but scott. will you give us maybe your favorite deal Of the of the six that that could happen a month from now. Yeah i would. I use the one that I don't know whether this will happen. And i'm just curious to see how the dallas stars are going to deal with some really crushing salary cap issues moving forward. Jamie dan tyler. Seguin who account for north of nineteen million dollars against the cap and we know the caps can be flat at a one point. Five million for the next couple of years until the economics get sorted out after the pandemic and the shortened season. so for me the guy. That's so interesting. john. Klingberg such an important part of that dallas Blue line. he was critical. Part of that team. Going to the stanley cup final To win short of cup championship. I got one more year left on his deal but he doesn't have any trade protection and he's going to be do a very significant a increase. I'm not sure dallas stars can afford to keep him. That's just reality facing jim nill And i know there's a team in philadelphia. Desperate for a top four defender baby someone to play with ivan provorov. It would be a huge deal might be too much to do the trade deadline But i'm curious to see if the stars a look like they have a huge uphill battle to get back in the playoff picture in the central division after a rocky start That's the one. I'm curious about john. Klingberg to philadelphia. That would be the one that i'm curious to see. Whether that might have some legs in might actually come to fruition. It's interesting and You know a similar age apples and oranges. Maybe a bit but a similar ages To win the blues acquired j bohm eastern and what bom. Easter did a steady that blue line. Which would you. You mentioned earlier. And the blues beneficiaries a handful of times now and other teams cap issues and doug armstrong man. You're right he just i. I would say it'd be surprised. The blues kept wheeling and dealing. But i'm not surprised with that guy i guess they got they they. That's some cap issues. Which may make it and i guess the you know the interesting thing and especially when you've had the injuries that the blues of had and i know it's almost a cliche but the idea that vladimir tarasenko coming back into the lineup at the stage of the year is almost like the ultimate trade deadline acquisition. Is you your own ad kind of thing. And it's why. I remember back when i was at. Espn i remember the night jobe. Jay-paul miester became a blue And it does take some time. Sometimes it takes time to come and fall kinda grew. So i think if you're a guy like doug armstrong in you you've got to tori crew. I wasn't saying klingberg to the blues. I just met the kind of impact. Could make someone's able to snatch that up. Oh yeah right. Yeah no. I understand. But i was just thinking terms of guys who take some time and oh yeah i like tori crew jimmy. Justin falk is another guy you know came in and it's taken him in like the better part of a season. I know it's all disjointed now but was wrong i think doug armstrong probably likes his mix it pretty. He must be pretty satisfied. I would think with that jordan high and other guy that you know one of the kids who's been in and taking advantage of the opportunities With some of the injuries other veteran players in and really taking advantage of that opportunity. And i think as a gm man. That's those was the best kinds of things that can happen to you when you see that homegrown talent who You know means you don't have to go elsewhere. You don't have to look outside the building to maybe find some of your answers. So it's a great point. Scott burnside had to the athletic dot com. Yeah it was another trade for. Brian elliott the pick. Got from calgary jordan. Cairo follow scott on twitter. It's overtime scott. Be again check out his piece. Six deadline deals. He would like to see happen.

Scott burnside and again just have everything rolling right now. The nhl and nba headed towards the playoffs. Major league baseball getting ready to start the masters around the corner and the nc double a. Starting this weekend man. What what a year. What a year. What a year. And i'm going to try not to take it for granted. Try not to take any of it for granted. Although that is much easier said than done all right. A quick click nine minute reset primer on mizzou and illinois as they get set for the tournament. We'll start with mizzou. I was joined by former missouri tiger jarret sutton and sam of rock m nation and got both of their thoughts on the match ups and where mizzou could have been advantage. I i think when. I look at mizzou right now. Where they're at a mean jeremiah. Tolman to me is still such an important piece from a matchup standpoint. Because i think when jeremiah is good it makes everything a lot. Better when he's doing things defensively rebounding the ball to high level. Stand on a foul trouble. Finishing at the rim plane and and roll of your pinson allowing pinson to get downhill make plays in hidden bunker spots and hitting him on the role law And getting him in single coverage and then german getting doubles. I think opens up other guys for cutters like drew. Smith is a really high. Iq player that moves really well without the ball on saw. Put it on jeremiah. Solman but i still think in this game. I think it's interesting about this. Matchup is like we said missouri and oklahoma reflect each other pre similarly in a lot of ways. They got some older players. So when you look at oklahoma austin reads brady To older players. That can do a lot of things are going to be the two most important players probably on the floor. License heartless will be there as well But they got experience and they got a guard and they got a big. That can do things. And i think that's what's interesting about. The matchup is defensively. I'll be curious. Congo's with mitchell smith at times to guard on the perimeter They're gonna try to bring jeremiah someone on the perimeter guard on the perimeter. And i would think that there's gonna be some substitution patterns there and i think jeremiah someone's got sat foul trouble in this game. It's really important and then from guard standpoint. This team is is so much veteran transition. We know that when when they push pace and they limit teams to one shot and it can get out and have live ball turnovers and have their defense to offense is when they can score points and set their defense and they can get a lot of confidence and they build and it's defense to offense and then they share and they have that balance When they struggle they're not or turnovers. They're giving up offensive rebounds. They're not rotating defensively. They're not communicating. And i think this oklahoma team day. They are a very balanced team as well. I mean they can score the ball. They got guys that can make shots. They can stretch the floor with brady big student. Threes And defensively i think coach krueger. I think he would say this is one of his better teams defensively to oklahoma. Now they have had ups and downs for sure but they've won games on their defense Especially back in december. But that that to me is that the game's can be won and lost is the defensive side of the ball which both these teams know. They got to defend win. But it's also the executing on offense making perimeter shots which you know is mark smith going to step up and make threes mark. Smith is gonna show up. Are we going to get production from mizzou standpoint from mitchell smith giovane ticket does console go towards watson a couple of times. What does that look like off the bench from missouri. Getting them production off the bench. So it's sort of like what team shows up for me. I mean when when you're saying who's who's win this matchup. I think oklahoma would say the same thing like it depends on what team shows up And jeremiah someone's gotta be you gotta be good for this this team. I think if they if they have a chance to get through this opening around and the look to the next round. He's gotta be really good exam. Your pinson's gotta be consistent and get downhill and be an attack mode. And i think if this game is close which i could see it very much being closed i could see it being a somewhat of a slug fest in the sixties i could be that could be the case especially in lucas oil with depth perception as can struggle to make shots in an opening round game like that. I think when you look at closing games out who's gotta have the ball late in the game. It's gotta be drew smith. I mean i think he's earned that late in games. He's an older player. We saw him hit a shot against florida. That won the game. A much needed win. Obviously out that you look at it. But he's got to be the guy probably late. It has a bone scans in some sort of isolation giving him space to work. And i think that would be your late game scenarios there. But it's going to be a good matchup I think if you're just a college basketball fan in general and don't have title com oklahoma missouri. It's it's a good game to watch and that eight nine line especially looking ahead of who's played gonzaga and sam selling the biggest indicator for me Like how efficiently missouri's able to kind of generate offenses are two point percentage and win. They're when they're going well they are kind of getting those those primary and secondary break opportunities when they're getting on the floor and running your finishing with guys. You're finishing with Drew smith mark smith jr yvonne picket getting out and running And and being able to finish those as opposed to contested two point shots in the half court so if teams are able to kinda limit what missouri does transition and they have to kind of go to court and you you get more like the pick and roll offense with ever pinson as much as we like ext like one of the things that he He does is. He's not great around the rim if he's not getting foul calls And we all kind of know that that officials kinda put away their whistles more later in the season and and And tournament play and they're not as likely to call as many of those like you know body contact kind of calls it that savior was kinda getting early in the in the season so when his free throw rate is high missouri is generating a more efficient offense And they're able to kind of keep those percentages up but but when he's not getting those calls he's really missing close in two attempts against defense and and that causes that to kind of sink. So yeah i mean i. I do think that the turnovers is something that that is going to help missouri. but it's not just. It's it's long rebounds. It's it's forcing oklahoma exit to to miss contested shots and then getting that and going quickly Him as long as as long as they're they're forcing mrs They're not allowing second shots. you know. It doesn't necessarily have to be turnovers but but still getting those transition opportunities in in finding a way to to score against the defense. That isn't said this is very clearly a key from missouri heart illinois and the other side of the bracket and a brutal. I think by everyone's really evaluation draw the line. I got oklahoma state in their region. They could wind up plainly ola in the second round if they win their first round match up the atlanta a one-seat. Here's ryan fagin from sporting news going into the bracket you not before the seeds were out in my mind. My my dream scenario for the final floor title game matchup was illinois Oklahoma state in. I thought that had been great. Matchup number one seed versus number two or three seed. Somehow oklahoma state went up as a as a four seed which is mind. Boggling was mind boggling on selection sunday. It's still mind boggling. now I i think they had a better record than literally any of the number three seats especially west virginia team. They beat twice during the regular season. I don't understand how that happened. And now all of a sudden my dream title game matchup is going to happen in the sweet sixteen It sounds weird to say this. But i think whoever wins that sweet sixteen title game sweet sixteen game between illinois in oklahoma state is going to the national title game. That's how much i think of those teams. I think that has always going to have a tough second round game if if if it's against Loyola is not a pushover. As an abrasive. I think illinois good enough to take care of that but this is a. This isn't a line. I team that is very much capable of winning national title absolutely The first the second round of the third round games are going to be brutal If they thinking. Get through oklahoma state. Which i really do think it'll be oklahoma state even though tennessee give them a trouble in the second round I think that illinois has a very good chance of getting into that title game against Gonzaga plenty attorney talk as we go forward and looking forward to Just kicking off.

Post Game Reaction Game 6 Flames/Stars

"Welcome back to star casting remarks. That's I'm Ki- I'm. What? Yeah. What just happened. Yeah I. Don't think there's really even much of a breakdown. You can really do about that game look like those of many bites teams go out there, and then like the team that was in the lead just Kinda fell asleep and. Yeah, I don't know. Stars win. By. Final score. Now, that was not a question we know the stars was. Okay Stars Win. With the final score of seven to three. That's a lot in two three. That's a Lotta. Hockey's. We have only played one real Dallas Stars game at of out of those four wins for the win for the playoff series. And that was game. We saw our four wins in the series. Are Five Four. Five, four, two, one, seven, three. AM. For team not known for their offense, we have scored the second most goals in the first round and you know high more. Behind our. Yeah. Go figure. Okay let's I. Guess we'll just look at a couple of stats tonight. Let's start with these. Sure Calgary gives back game three, their goalies sucked. were bad. That way difference in the game. Yeah. Khudobin. Actually plays outstanding. For fifty minutes he believes a perfect fifty minutes. So unfortunately, in the first ten, there was three goals. But he played a great game since then he finishes with a nine twenty seven save percentage very respectable. Higher into his safe percentage average for the best the league. and. Then the flames Talbot who's taken out in the in a during the second period and put back into the third period which I've never seen in my life unless there was an injury. Finishes with a save percentage of seven, thirty three. In riddick goes in for less than period faces, nine shots, it only makes succeeds. Like. I, said, I still don't know if this is a stars Wayne or flames loss. I think I think Calgary's given back game three that they stole from us. and. Giving us a CA- chuck name to go along with it. Oh, man that Mimi is going to be everywhere. We made that out. We need the I saw that on the twitter really use that throughout the play offs for every reactions just the Gif no matter what. From now on, that is our that's that's our. That's our rally flag now, did you see the other Jif that was up on twitter? I forgot who put it, but it was when Cari Latin was still around and it was absolutely hilarious because they said, when is doping and assert doing this it was the exact same score against the exact same team several years ago it was against the flames it wouldn't it was seven to three. What are the chances? Oh. My goodness I I guess that's the difference in this series, and we talked about that right at that when we did our previews for this series. and. In the middle of the series we were saying it didn't feel like stars goalies were being better than flames goalies and they prove US wrong in the next three stars wins and. Finish out, the series for us. In the stars woke up in game two and they never looked back except firm. Stolen game in game three. That was pretty much it. We still there the better team that game. Yeah and you know what I'm starting to think that we actually were the better team in game three in I don't think Talbot was. That great. Play well I. Think we were very unlucky. Yes I think that was part of it. We had no puck luck. And all those goals that should've gone in game three. winning. Game Six. Every single one? There was divers think. I. Think this is the only game in the series where we didn't hit opposed actually. I. Don I can't. Say. They all wanted. Yeah. They are every single one of them when they saw like to good miss chances both of by the first line obviously but. Well. Actually, that's funny. You bring that up. So we were just talking about that. Gets who didn't score points tonight. Gary Been? And Radulovich. Does that mean there's this like the beginning of the end of those three being dominant and then didn't. Often hints in the Post that made on Facebook I. Think this game is a perfect highlight for with the stars future is. For the next hopefully, like ten years. If we can keep him on our team, it's going to be the hints. In hastening show and they're going to be the core of this team has been Zagan clinger were. But I think. The best teams in the playoffs teams that always wind up winning the cup. It everyone agrees that they were the best team that year are always the teams that have those older guys and they have their new core coming up with them and they're both there together and I think I'm hoping that's what we're witnessing right now and hoping we'd get a little bit more production out of the top three guys going into the next round but I will say the top three they had some pretty big plays after the first two games. The the goals that they did score while they were few and far between there were some pretty big goals you think about the first goal in in A. Game five to win. Yeah. The been like what do you think goal that goal can change the game? No goal in the first period goes into the second period zero zero. We could be looking at a whole different game there so While they haven't been as productive as we've seen them in the past they have. Made a pretty big impact on the series. Still I think well, you know what I'm thinking about right now is I'm thinking about the Toronto Media and they're probably welcoming Calgary with open arms saying welcome to the crap show his. Candidate right now that was. I. I'm thinking it's still I think Calgary's still on still coming up. Right I don't think they're they've arrived yet I. Think they've got. Two good players that solid first line, a decent second line that's pretty much carried by chuck. There's no doubt that all. There's no blue liners and the goaltending, obviously a spotty but I think I think within the next few years as long as they're GM has a brain and there they'll be able to figure out to get some depth guys in there to help Johnny. CONSTRUC-. Well. The the thing is that what was the most dominant line in this series for the Calgary flames? was. An airline, your third line was. Do. Bay and Milan Lucia each in an until game three. The. Meal Lucci resolve the scoresheet every night going back to the Winnipeg series. And then I guess it. They are playing a lot of hockey by the way I mean a lot of hockey very soon and Man. I thought this was absolutely hilarious. But so when the flames were a three to nothing. That's when the NHL released the start time for games. Think it. Thinking there was GonNa be one game on Saturday. stores didn't want. Without that one thing. It's almost like on the bench during the time out bonus was like. It was the time out. They just released the time for game seven. Show them for them. Wrong gear. Yana. If you've got my back, you'RE GONNA YOU'RE GONNA score four goals Oma Gosh I've got another daughter and a good game Sagrada off still has miserable ice time and he scored four goals I. Think he had third least among forwards. It was yet gary on of Cure Cancer Rhonda and hence and Hints had thirteen twenty four kissed her on ahead thirteen twelve in Gary had thirteen, twenty seven. So yeah. He source for that's again every three minutes. That's the goal every three minutes. Pretty much and writer saying he should just play all sixty minutes and the stars old school twelve goals a game. Theft. Let's just clone. Hey, skin and Gary on-off. We'll be good. Yeah, the. We'll just go with that moneyball. Okay. Well. Let's look at some other stats for today hero of the series I think is mere. Hey, skin. And hear. An clinger even though he wasn't very vocal tonight, her vocal does that even make sense. Scoresheet, right? Yeah. It was on the scoresheet. But Hey skin tonight with a goal and three assists. In you know, honestly, if he doesn't score that goal in the first period on the power play. I think this game is a lot different. I completely agree I think that goal was huge because if you if you're going into the locker room three nothing in, you're getting trout the whole game. That that feels especially bad. three-goal deficit. Really Sucks, but two goals is pretty normal. Like that's a bad period, but it's not like it's not like you're going into the room thinking like how are we gonNA come back with this? You go into the room thinking one more goal in hockey game. Right. So it's much easier mentally in my opinion to come back from two goals in district three. So I think that's a huge goal, and of course, stars just come out. Dominating the second period, it wasn't even close it looked like the Calgary didn't even belong there. Then, third period actually, Calgary looks pretty good in the first. Seven minutes, they're pushing pretty hard. But then as soon as green outscored is fourth, it's over. Well, it was. It was a good play by Cavour Rhonda Too. So it was like give routes actually played pretty well game. I know especially compared to the other game that he played where he looks very shaky. He looked really good this game. So if your marked out for an extended period of time I, think I think if he throw second line with Paul Skin. Gary. Enough. You think he can just replace that. WanNa see Publicity Gerry often heads which we saw in the beginning of the game which got me excited but the. Added Mattia, I still WANNA see those guys flying up the wing and just the Bilski. Coveted in late man and scoring but. Either way as long as it's scoring seven goals, I can't really complain so. honestly, I was getting ready for game seven. I realize after that first period I was like. Okay fine will will will win game seven because there's no way we play this bad and then the next game in game seven, we don't pull off. The win. But at the stars had other ideas tonight. I don't know what else to say about this other than. It would what's the story of the game here we were talking about this a little bit earlier to in the in the green room before we started recording but is this a flames implosion or is this a actually like stars? Like offensive breakout. So I, I think it's a mixture of both I. Think the flames goalies sucked in terrible. Like. I mean all the goals we had a pretty decent I. Think I can think of a couple that were pretty bad. But. The, they've gotTa make one good save at least and they did the whole game. And then the second part is that. Dallas came out to take the lead in the second period and there was no stopping them from Calgary Calgary is not good enough team to stop them. And I think the whole story of the series is Dallas is Blue Line is a tier two s tear. Calgary's Blue Line is like not even in any job Blue Line and that's where the starkest contrast in the series comes from 'cause if you if you're a normal hockey fan and you're like staring at stats like me at Ryan are. Can you name one defenseman from Calgary flames? Not Not really. They didn't they were nowhere in this series not on defense not on offense I think there is one goal by a defenseman and it was in game one. I can't remember who exactly it was Rasmussen yeah but. They were non-existent are blue liners were far superior. which is what we need because we have one of the best blue lines in the league, and we just showed that dominance in this whole series in my opinion that are goaltending from. Game for on well, and I think one of the the biggest surprises about this game was. Actually, I disagreed with I. think it was Tim Cowlishaw on twitter he mentioned something about. I forget the Calgary Coach's name Jeff something. Decisions it's not it's just something. But anyways, he said that you could tell that he was not a real NHL head coach because tell that lead into softies and then immediately switch. Terrific. Played a single game in the bubble. And that I was like, no, he he's just trying to to get some. You know get jump stardom basically like take a couple of jumper cables hub the his team up to a battery Neil kind of. Electrify them back in. And then you know after. I think re after Riddick gave up that goal I was just like I'm going back to that same twitter post and it was like, okay, I was wrong I'm sorry you were correct. Yeah. It does jumpstart the other team but not the other goalie. Hasn't played in can't play. Right, right? Exactly. So if you're GONNA put in a cold goalie, he knows not going to do well. There there's there's really no reason to and like I think if we have been bishop as backup to of in that game I, honestly think after the third goal who opens taken out. which like is crazy to think about because after that, he plays a great game. But if you give three goals in seven minutes and it's been, there's been like eight shots seven shots wasn't I don't know. That's when you think about changing a goalie. Yeah. Kind of belief. Go ahead. Yeah. It kinda. Pleased to our favor that we didn't have been bishop on the bench tonight. So and we're definitely not going to put auditor and unless let's to Dovan gets. Gets hurt because that would. That's pretty scary thing for. goaltenders never played NHL came to to. Poor Hunter. It'd be terrifying I. I mean, he's he's your age I think right? Maybe a little bit older on August twenty two. So maybe twenty one something like that. Okay. So we've looked at a couple of stats for the stars I'll just throw this out there as well. also had a great game to go and added great series. He's the best. He's the best for this series. Gerrad obviously has has has a great game today, four goals. That's nuts but PAVELSKI is overall. The Best Stars for this series he always seemed to be the guy jumpstarting comebacks jump starting the offense in. It always seemed like he had the first good shift after a streak of bad ones. So Pavarotti's contract really starting to pay off. Light like we thought it would in the playoffs, which is when we need it most. and not to mention Corey Perry to he also with the helper today. So he hasn't been as noticeable the past couple of games but the he still does the little stuff. Right I mean he's he's our agitator. He's the one that gets in the other teams face and stuff like that as long as he stays out of the box. He's a great player for so which he has actually you know that makes me think about something on the flame side is marked Jared Oh, my goodness Marc Girard Donohoe. This guy had penalties left and right this series it seemed like and Again he's just taking bad penalties and. You could see I think it was about ten minutes left in the third period. You could see his frustration when I think it was him by himself Ram this school goal crease and was trying to pick a fight with clean Burgh but He just had a rough series and maybe. I is this the is it for Mark Giordano. And that's funny to say considering like just a couple years ago he won the Norris Trophy. And now he's very very quickly on the decline not for his sake and for the for the flames sake. But if you're a flames fan, I don't know where you go from here. I think it's definitely frustrating for their fans and for their best players to be in his position into kind of squander the play good game. Since after game one on US League game three, they were carried by their netminding. And some public from the stars and some puck and their GM has gotta find a way to put some put some blue liners out there or something else they might be. They might be trying to get out. I mean. Johnny. They've been in the League for couple years. Now, it seems like they're still fresh faces, but they're they're climbing up there. They're going to have to find a way to start winning. Some Games are they're going to get frustrated and get out of that place same way. Same from in my opinion with David and dry CEO. And when you look across the stats for the flames. The. They're just minuses all over the all over this green welfare. This gave you. You've got. Tobias Rieder with a minus two. You Got Sean Monahan with my to you've got no. Hannifin with minus upon with minus two. That just proves the most Gaydos. Yeah. Most of those guys are in your top six or infants case your top four for your defenseman. and. I'm sorry to fame flames fans. I don't I don't know what? I mean Brad tree living. Has got himself a huge job to do at the end of the year especially after that game and with that game being the last game of their season that all people are going to be talking about from here until December assuming the next NHL season starts in December. December January whatever it Kinda reminds me of the the stars game seven against the Blues get blown out. And how that just leaves a bad taste in your mouth for the entire season and you know what's funny that the thing that? Was Bad about that game is that it showed how? How lackadaisical are physicality was on that specific team against the Blues and the blues ran us over. That's exactly what happened listeners, but we are that team now. physicality. Wise. We are that team. We are what? So we we took a page from the Blue Book and we took it and found some players to fulfill the roles. That year we we win, we win the western conference right in the regular season where a great hockey team were not a great play hockey team that year, and I think from that point on Jim Nill sees that he says all right I'm building a playoff hockey team. Now, I don't care where we end up in the regular season. We're going to make a deep run and I think, I, think we all thought that this team was built for deep run. I didn't know exactly how it was gonNA work. Since the weirdness of these playoffs, but this team is built to go deep in the playoffs into have been defined scoring on on at least three out of four lines apparently scoring even though. That they couldn't score goals will we'll. My point is we've got the debt to get the goals even when our top three aren't playing Zach was right when it our series preview, he talked about we were not going to need to rely on the top three guys where I thought we would have to our death comes in. comes. In big time, and that's a that's a great sign for a playoff team and when we face those especially Colorado which I various gave we face better teams. I feel like we're GonNa find somewhere scoring from the top three, and hopefully we keep this going from our depth than just keep it rolling. Well. Let me ask you real quick about your thoughts. Now, before we wrap up this series. The last two games in the Colorado Arizona series of a seven to one. Each get off so Arizona has a lot to talk about to speaking of Taylor Hall. I if I was Arizona, I would not resign him, but that's for another day Those two games was it just Arizona had? was just that bad or did it show that? Colorado is just that good and we should be very scared of their offense. So I think there's there's definitely A. Second make definition now I think there's there's definitely a bubble effect. that. Went on with some teams especially in the in the entry rounds and I think it carried over into some of the first rounds I think the Yoda as soon as they. As soon, as they kind of realized that. They're getting demolished and it's not looking good for their series. They're Kinda just feeling bad for themselves and they're ready to go home is my opinion. That's that's that's the what it looked like from the team that they put out there it looked like the yields were bad. and. I'm actually really excited for this upcoming series because Calgary's offenses good. Don't get me wrong. Obviously. It scoring seven goals against NHL teams twice is pretty astonishing but it's going to be that great offense versus the stars great defense hopefully. We'll wait a win. Or. Whatever it may be an offensive shootout. Maybe the stars what we thought was our. Our. Our game maybe it's not that anymore or maybe things the cove effect in the playoffs. It's everything's weird. So I think it's still our game. I think. The flames big goals come from inconsistencies in the stars right to honestly this game. That's true. The first ten minutes was terrible by us in the. Pretty much the last forty we were complete control. and. It it feels good to know that the stars can find ways to win. I think that even starts with the final round robin game like we didn't look great in that game. But we won the game and that of that of mantras continued throughout this series to like even if we're not looking great or not playing style hockey that we want to. Were adapting and finding a way to win that hockey game so. I think especially this covert, Cup that adaptation Covid Cup. I like La Kit that adaptation and that ability to win a game any way. It comes at you I. Think it's going to be super. Helpful. and. Hoping, we can't find her defensive game because I think that's the main reason we were able to me did I think that's the main reason we were able to sweep Colorado and the season series because we lockdown against him and we just put up bar one or two goals, and we moved ourselves along into the next game. So. But that's for another time. I'm sure we'll have series preview around to add that I. think that's GonNa. Be Our next podcast probably. Very excited to talk about that series end to watch it obviously. I'm really curious to see how all of us did with our season previews and who won and who didn't 'cause. There were some serious I was very wrong on. This like. But all right. Let's let's wrap up the series wrap this up. What was The deciding factor for the stars winning this series in your mind if you had to pick you can't I? Mean there was multiple things. But if you could only pick one thing, would you think it is blue liners his kinetic Klingberg they win the series. Highest point getters. Had the puck possession of anybody on the ice. They controlled. Pretty much games two through six. I've kept it in their hands and they want it in my opinion, our reliance on our top four is going to be huge going forward and the award. For Top defenceman. Thank you and the emergence of Jamie like CEAC is. Probably, one of the biggest things that allowed us to win this series I really do believe that. Now he's he took some stupid penalties but. He just seemed more confident on the ice anytime. You can see that with the way he goes forward with the rush. This guy is six seven and he's flying faster than Johnny Gujral is candalyn around a little bit at everything I know and. All right. Since you said that I, I'll that I would have said that too but I also got A. I'll pick something else the emergence of Khudobin. is absolutely huge I believe. Yeah we scored a lot of goals. We we did that but without Khudobin. I mean I mean look at today's game. If you don't have goaltending, you don't win series or games or anything. And Calgary proved that to the entire NHL Today. that. The flames don't have goaltending third at least they're just not consistent. So. were. I really, hope. Bishop. Whatever's going on with Bishop? A He gets fixed or I very little. They were in good hands though. And I'm not worried about that and even when Khudobin winning net I wasn't worried about it because we saw how he played. Now. The the the last thing that I'll mention about Khudobin is. If he takes us deep into the playoffs and stuff like that. How do we keep him? We don't he. He's GonNa expect a huge race. Deserve, I think I. Think he's at like two and a half million right now in which is decent for backup moneywise and he's definitely proved it. Yeah. The only way we keep them. I think even after just this series, the only way we keep him is if he wants to stay, he would have to take a pay cut and we've heard him say stuff about him he likes Dallas he wants to play here I've heard him say that. For I don't remember where or when but. The bishop is still our number one goalie. So anyone who thinks Khudobin as our number one goal is wrong been bishop is still at least a top five goalie pretty much. The past eight years. So he's going to be our number one goalie going to resign him. He is going to play for us in net every game, but we have when we top we have. TALKBACK backup goaltender in the league. Really Bar none oh? Yeah. Not Out what about a vegas? No Way Robin. Linear Marc Andre Fleury. Khudobin is better than lender.
