Several San Jose Sharks Teammates Don't Want Evander Kane Back on the Team
"Craig, if you can believe that. I feel like that. We've heard that before. Somewhere with Evander Kane surprising I don't know. I guess you know what? When? When he had left to San Jose. I You know, like, okay, so I always kind of wished the best for players. Always do you know if if a guy's got off ice issues or whatever you hope that he can figure it out and You know what I mean and grow from it right? And when he went to San Jose I thought Was good for the same as that he was gone. Um, thank Yeah. But I also thought when you know when he lands there, and Joe Thornton picks him up and brings him to his house. I think, Okay, this is going to be a a new turn for Evander Kane here because he's going to have you know a good mentor there with Jumbo and Other good leaders that they had there in San Jose. And I thought, you know what this could be beneficial for. Um, So here's to hoping that You can you can sharpen up. You know, And then here we are. And so, so Kevin Kurtz has been on our show before yesterday was reporting that Players. On San Jose. We're talking about How they don't want him back. Says the team was trying to trade Kane earlier this summer, a source says, confirming a report from the daily face off. A big part of the reason for the team to pursue a deal was canes strained relationship with many of his teammates, according to several sources, According to one source. The frustration with Kane stem from the general disrespect of team rules such as being late for practices and games. And zero consequences came, which caused ripple effect with other younger players, added the source. According to another source, it wasn't easy dealing with him this season, so We'll talk about another

"This father's day hank. What are you getting jay for father's day nothing. Good one funny jake. We're gonna talk about your viral video soon. You ready for it. yeah. I didn't always ready for talks and puck. We did a Return to the big mad for our leaf fan. Awol's the leafs are maybe the saddest franchise ever. It's tough right now. Big mad is trending in toronto. That's that's it's been it's been six thousand two hundred fifty one days since the maple leafs have won a playoff series. They haven't won a playoff series since two thousand and four. They haven't won a stanley cup. Since nineteen sixty seven but it's actually way worse than that because the way they lose playoff series are so stupendous. Lee stupefying lee bad that it's like incomprehensible to so the they had eleven years so seventeen years since they wanna play officers. Oh the first eleven years. They just didn't make the playoffs except for once and that one time they made. The playoffs was two thousand thirteen when they gave up a four one lead in the third period with ten minutes left in game seven including two goals when the when the bruins pulled their goalie in under two minutes to go. That's insane then. In two thousand seventeen they were up to one in a series against the capitals. They lost six games two thousand eighteen. They lost in seven games. Two thousand nine hundred and they lost in seven games and then they lost up three one against a team that i think fans like they hate more than any other team in in the canadians. They were up three one in the series. They go to a game seven and there's actually nothing worse than a no show in game seven. Yeah like losing in game seven. I know that that's bad in two thousand thirteen. They lost the way they lost. I would contend that a no show the way they lost tonight where you like. Get a fucking goal with thirty seconds left to just have something on on the scoresheet doubts that hurts so much worse. And it's not like the leafs have been terrible team this whole time either because they've been good like leafs in the late nineties early. Two thousand had a lot of really good players and there were so fun to watch. That was like the tie domi team when he beat people up that fell into the penalty box would fight everybody on the on the ice. you had. I think darcy tucker is on that team. You had mats dean like they've had a lot of really good players come through toronto and you always think of them as being one of the premier franchises just because they've got like their toronto's team. The blue sweater is wonderful. But they are they actually kinda got screwed by the strike because they had a really good team. I think that's when they they won. Their last playoff series was the year before the strike. They had a good team that they're building on. They got fucked by the strike and then they just haven't done anything at all since then. It's tough our good friend. Paul missed the net said that when they were up three one in this series he would he would get himself circumcised. Yeah he's concise. Dick got sweater and he will circumcise himself or pay for somebody. Circumcise them if they were to lose that series turns out. They lost the series. So hot seat pulled foreskin circumcised. Yeah he's gotta get circumcised. And i looked it up. Actually you have to. You have to wait forty two days before having sex circumcised hikes. New nickname jr nasty. Ooh you can't joseph your circumstance uncircumcised. No you don't come. Oh if you're the foreskin just sit in resorts it. he had just. It goes back in the fall. All right so we got big mad tweets. Read some of the best. These are from li fans. We asked them to write in. We do feel bad for them but misery is the best content. So this one's from luca he said. I wanna cut my face off while getting punched in the groin. Multiple times i. There was a theme to the people. Were trying to relate it to like our own misery. I didn't need that but a couple of them were like Said it's like being packers fan but are often turns into the bears come playoff time. Yeah that's actually a pretty good. Take though yeah. That makes sense. Mike he said. Please don't talk about us on the show. I just threw up at so bad. I'm going to chain smoke darts and hate saves a fucking joke. It's like watching a movie where you know the ending and it sucks but you watch it every year. Fuck fuck fuck. This is actually a pretty good spin zone by the leafs so the leafs texted a statement to their fans. Ooh after the leafs nation. This isn't where we want to say goodbye in her five-month unprecedent journey. The vision was clear. We fell short but we would like to thank the five hundred fifty healthcare workers who represent the true heroes of today. I can't wait to see scotiabank right. That yes oh this yeah. They had a bunch of like What what are they like. first responders nurses paramedics come out and they were in attendance tonight so another choking one of their spin zone is that because they there's still a lot of code restrictions and canada. They didn't have the giant watch party in the town. Yes no video of all the lease fans getting their heartbroken. Yeah good point liam wrote as leafs fans we should collectively choose one shit coined to pump and poor earnings to buy the team. We fire everybody in hire a shaman as a coach no need for hockey knowledge to coach. Lease just enough. Good juju to balance out the curse. I don't know how this guy's name. I'd rather drag my balls through mile broken glass and vinegar than watch. His team. cock-up the playoffs again. I liked that cock-up the playoffs It's like taking one hundred kids to the dick and over and over again This one did this guy. Did the same thing where. Lucy decided that to bring the bears into this. I don't know why it's like if the bears got a top ten quarterback and won. The division was a top five team in the league with a real chance to win the super bowl. But then the double join captains but then you take that feeling and make it every year except this year. It was against the packers Yolks this one. Came from kyle lowry season..

"So james think of joe thornton at age seventy eight out there. The toronto i guess he's gonna start it out. Sheldon keefe. leaves head. Coach is gonna start old man river in between mitch and austin matthews on their number one line. Yeah i you know. I don't think much of it right. Because here's how that's gonna go okay. We'll start for the in the first game and we'll see all goals right. It's not it's not like you ought to lock in you know it's not like there's a rule saying he's got to stand that first line for seven games or whatever they'll put them in you know it's it's probably a pretty good marketing idea right. Not that the leash need to market their team. Their audience being so big. But so i don't think much like whatever the guy shit they're going to move he's going be he's gonna be moving down a line. Steve about every twenty minutes chase way joe jordan. Come over is next. He's on the second line now. Yeah so when. I when i read that headline you know. It's like like like a starting goalie announcement you know putting them. We're putting in seoul and so right on. What young boy now. So good point when you talk about an off season you know it's it. It does generate headlines. And i don't think that truly. I don't think the leaves have any operations of making that a permanent thing. Not even through the first freak and half of the first period right or if if it happens at all I just It's i think it's a way to of really truly welcoming joe thornton to toronto. Because while he's not going to be relied upon heavily to be the offensive thrusts that he's been throughout his career is forty one years old Oldest ford in the nhl. It's not likely to be a guy They're leaning on that heavily but they are leaning on him quite heavily to be a great leader on the team which is one of the voids for the toronto maple leafs in these recent years on good talent citing young talent but rudderless totally rudderless. Right.

"You can do that by simply saying kay crapshoot finish in the bottom five somewhere. Any one of those five Winning but it shouldn't be a team as good as the new york rangers. That's a you know. Well along in there rebuild now that ends up with a number one overall selection. That's not really fair either. Because part of the idea of the draft is for the week or teams to be able to replenish a. Don't want to see it go. That far were good teams end up with the number one overall selection. Well here's the other thing steve. If you look at the big picture though okay so you see this display yesterday by philly and eyebrows are all going up a whole. Hang on a minute here. What's what's happening now now. We know what's happening. Okay like i said. Even chris collingsworth going. This makes no sense. E just came short of saying they're tanking just came like a hair short of saying say i would never do that. I don't understand blah blah blah but in the big picture stevie when you look back at at at previous years you know where where the draft happened. It's not too often. Cv when when people do look back say five years ago. If you had the same situation with a with a hockey team sort of saying look try your hardest but don't try too hard okay. Got a good position. You don't hear too much of that anymore steve. You don't hear someone go. Oh yeah don't forget. They tanked that game. You know You know what i mean. It's just it's not this. It's not this sort of you know rapid problem right so we look at things and yesterday. So what you're telling me is they. They go from the ninth ninth. Pick to the sixth pick. Yes so i've been seeing drafts my whole life and it's a crapshoot whether you get who you're gonna pick in the sixth round compared to who you're gonna pick three route three three picks later you know so it doesn't. It's not that big a deal to me. It's not so much about where you select it just about the fact that you're tanking at all it. It doesn't really matter to me. What the the. Your incentive is for the most part All i know is if i'm running the nfl roger goodell. I'm looking at two teams. Who went out to play. A game meant everything to one team in washington and they win the division and it also met a ton to the new york giants who were relying on a you know an at least an honest effort from washington's opponent in the eagles and they failed miserably to deliver that..

"Gets lots of Perry unless you know Burke was looking to the Future and sort of having a already very very good Ducks team that was going to win a cup within a year. Yeah. I'm in a year, right? I don't think they want to 6:07. So they want the yeah. So I've seen those loaded on the cost for it. I doubt you would have traded, uh, you know, some of these franchise of guys already had their these older players but if getting joked, what means you go up a gallic Getzlaf. Yeah, of course you make that trade for the Ducks if you're trying to win now so but yeah the facts. It was one of those situations where it feels like, oh, like with Saddam who he was going to trade too and everyone else was like, oh, you know, we'll give you Brian get hello. Hello my boss. Okay, like I feel like it's one of those situations where it's again. The Bruins worked out they want they want a cup after trading fill out and they got you know the cap space, but you also could have birth. Another two or three younger players that could have factored into the next ten years of his team if it was somewhere else. So again, it wasn't the the most devastating trade. I guess you could say wage history, but you could have done a lot better considering what talent you have there and Joe Thornton in terms of what's funny though at the time. That was the devastating trade cuz they were terrible and then they bought him down again like they were they was funny. Well, they were good in the Years leading up to that year. They they were pretty good in that time leading up. You know, the phone number raycroft and they they were genuinely pretty good and then Thornton trade happens they completely bottom out and I think at the time it was devastating. Yes. I mean you you wonder about an alternative reality in the Bruins Universe where they get Ryan Getzlaf and they have get a first-round pick but let's just say they've gets lots. Okay, you've gets off and Patrice Bergeron, you know, just do you log You go out and get Savard. I mean I don't I think you still get Chara maybe not Savard but probably still Savard. So and then we're just David krejci fit in the mix. Like I think it's a very cool thing to think about Harry also is interesting. I mean if you get Corey Perry, I mean that's just another scoring Winger. I mean Harry ended up being a fifty goal scorer like so long. I think it's so fascinating to think about those two because I mean Perry and gets lost in their Prime were top 10 players in the NHL. I mean, yeah, I mean like Elite of a leap off. They just kind of got stuck out there in Anaheim and those it's.

"But but the the league has a lot more to deal with in the NHL in terms of getting the season off the ground affected and now it's something like this where we're driving to another, you know labor. That's another situation with the first side to Blink loses again, it doesn't help the fans or any of us looking for, you know, the season to go off, you know, pretty cleanly right now. We're just kind of sitting here waiting to get any more concrete news. But as you said, it seems like that January 1st starting date is all but all but lost unless they miraculously agree to something this weekend. It's like yeah trying to get shots on a week and half which again you've got guys in Europe. You got guys up in Canada to go cries all over the place. He gets a Wrangle up and get them back over here. So I think that's case you're looking at mid January to early early February at this point, you know, maybe 48 games something like that. But again easier said than done when you got these two sides kind of dog. You know arguing over money again. Not great. Not great. And it's and it's one of the TV deal things most interesting to me because you do wonder where they might go next year, you know, whether it's they stay with NBC which I have a tough time imagining they would I feel like wage I think ESPN's the move. I always thought that if you really want to grow I feel like the most most younger people in this country watch ESPN. I mean, you know, it's all day sports NBC Sports. I mean, you know, they have, you know, like fencing on it, you know 11 in the afternoon. So I just purchased in ESPN's the way to go but that's a whole other topic for a whole another day speaking of big moves. We just had a 15 year anniversary 15 year anniversary of of a very very bad but ended up not being as bad as people thought a trade with Joe Thornton to the San Jose Sharks now fifteen year anniversary of that older than both of us together. We're both under 15. So people that people don't know that God. Few people don't know that and combine two, so that would make like, you know, you ate and me like 7 so that would be kind of weird. But yeah, it was seven fifteen, right? Yeah. I got that right. Thank Joe. You can't configure. I think that's I think that's it. But I think the most interesting part of the Joe Thornton trade obviously everyone's hashed out how bad that returned that was and how like, you know, Wayne primeau and Brett Stewart ended up turning into Chuck kobasew an interference. That's not terrible Ferris when your cup and on the other side of it Marco Sturm was here for a really long time had that this song by braiding goal had the 2010 word classical he was great and he was a great like sort of bridge guy. When you think of like bridge players from one generation to the next Marco Sturm is like a prototypical bridge guy like that guy was a complete Bridge To The Future to like contending for a cut, but he was not going to be on that contending team traded for future consideration wage. Don't think the Bruins we don't know what the future considerations are and I was ten years ago. But.

Just, basically, somebody in a rolls or a limousine or something they'd roll down their window and talk to somebody beside them and traffic at a traffic light and say have you got new poop on there you go. Okay. That was. Anyway. That was big news for the weekend. Cool speaking a jumbo about Joe Thornton signing on with the Toronto Maple leafs over the weekend. Forty, one years of age and I think I guess he thinks. That Toronto represents best chance to win a copy actually said, I need to win a Stanley Cup. I, really like the leafs I love the organization. It was a little bit about family because he's from that area right mostly about hockey and I think the average sends fan would go. Go following, chuckling away Riley, the team that hasn't won in fifty two years. You think that's your Stanley Cup solution. I got a one year deal with seven hundred grand. Anyway I, don't know if they're starving for new state because this thing has been. Just. Like went viral like there's so many stories on the you know I flip through the score news and I got a couple of other news APP sports illustrated and Google Sports, and all that. And I flipped through. Top. Story. Steve. Okay my first story. Thornton spoke to Joe Montana before signing with the leafs. Okay, right. Okay. Thornton signed one year because he's ready to win. Now next one thornton decline spence's offer to wear number nineteen with the leafs. Okay. You know what you know what that news is of Joe Thornton doing that picture watching. Sportscenter. Okay. Sports desk whatever pitcher watching it, and then they all the the daily news you know whatever's going on all the stories and dirt so well edited. So produce and that the end of the show you know they're gonNA start to sign off Steve signing off another great shows Steve You're going to have to watch for the dodgers owned by the way Joe Thornton. Signs for seven hundred in Toronto. Goodnight everybody. That's what that is. Right what that is. It's like it's like an oldies act come into town. Is. Not. Really. As big stories it's made to, but it really is another example of how. In Canada anyway, the leafs run the sports news wheel. Yeah. I if I was Joe Thornton this story about Joe. Montana. I. Would be embarrassed because the headline of the story is kind of like comparing to great joe athletes. Joe Montana won four, Super Bowl Steve King and when he got traded, it was huge. You know and there is in the story Joe Thornton spoke to Joe Montana because he got traded out of California just like Joe Thornton. It's just like, no, no, no no. That was a crazy trade ninety. I think it was nineteen, ninety three or anyone to Kansas City for a couple of many retired in ninety, five our data. This, the only thing similar are the two first names. act. Great Way. Let's let's not give Joe Thornton short shrift because he is a guy that's GonNa be a first ballot hall of Famer in hockey but he hasn't won any cups. There's no doubt about that. He's not in Joe Montana's class per se it just really it's any way you could make this story maybe a little more compelling get another article out there because again, if the leaves do anything you know it's a guy who was a name player and everybody knows that name and it was a terrific player in his day. But I think just last season showed that the end is nigh for corn and this is as it is with Jason Spitzer. This is just a bringing in a leadership. It's a rocking chair tour for both of them. By mercenary thing as they both try and win a Stanley Cup because they both and find careers but the couple alluded them both in by the way, there's going to be thirty two teams. Soon, the Stanley Cup is going to allude most players. So nobody should Brian over that. Now now I'll give him this. All right I will say this that that I. Like a lot of people. They live and die with the leafs but every year, there's hope. Hope and there's no question since Austin mast you Austin massifs. Westerlund also. Limo Austrian little CV also didn't. mattheus. Places in Toronto Maple leafs. And who else is marlow and? Know Who's there Matthews Patrick Marlowe was it's kind of funny because Marlowe left San Jose to go to Toronto for a year or two and Joe Thornton was probably going on my buddy first and second overall back in I. Don't know what draft was. There's probably going back to a.

The next two seasons is clearing cap space because I don't see yep. Going up. I don't either I either moving on to another topic quickly before you might be touching off Maria is the bathroom and forward David pastrnak continues his unbelievable year, but more or less its notoriety. He wins the check player of the year for his contributions as a check player around the world and in the NHL tremendous tremendous tremendous player and so happy to have this type of scoring machine on a Boston Bruins club that we've to me seems like has been starved to have the caliber of of him on this on this team. So thoughts on his year and his future months. This this young man is quickly becoming an elite player in the National Hockey League. If he's not already not already there should talk about, you know becoming also the future face of the Boston Bruins franchise here, you know, I think right now for me, you know Bergeron is the face of that truck has but just this young man, he's got the whole package. He's got the whole package going on and it was a little bit heartbreaking have the season end. So abruptly and not be able to watch this kid get to that 50-goal Mark because I think he could have he could have done that easily off and you know potentially exceeded that and the Bruins have been starving for a long time for a guy like this on on the team. You know, we've had those Snippets where we left off. You know Joe Thornton was going to be that guy and Phil Kessel was going to be that guy and Blake wheeler was going to be that guy and for one reason or another it just never seem to pan out here in Boston. And so, you know, it's it's it's refreshing. It's refreshing to see and it's exciting to see and it's awesome for the future of the Boston Bruins organization. Yeah. Awesome. He's just he's so funny. Like I think his personality fits well here. Do you know what I mean? Like we talked about like like you just did a great list. You could add Sagan and many others to that law. I forgot about him. I'm great like skill set. But just some reason I mean even like Joe Thornton right which he was beloved by many of em all but just like something didn't click right but Pastor like walked in it's like he found his right fraternity house or whatever and I think to what makes him kind of we always say like a boss Like it's a Bruins thing and I think for him it's it is his story. He is Young and he had to you know, he did. He wasn't the affluent real kid that got to go skate on the good night. I sat Phillips Exeter, which is fine. But like he's not he's a kid that he.

"Was it rumor that they were going. Have the time or exotic. Yeah, where I think it was rumored that I don't want to miss, remember but. I do. Remember rumblings about Thornton. That being happy there and they couldn't sign them. Long term and it was time to move on. So the game was, he was in the same class as Sergei Samsonov. And I believe Samsonov was also traded that night same trade. He was in the same town was really in the same trade wasn't in the same tracy was traded. I thought the same night. Oh, I can look that up, but the game was a November twenty nine, two thousand five gaming. It's the new. Jersey devils. Okay there you go, who you who you covering for those games for back then. Nice. Yeah that is nuts I mean I like for me I. Mean of my lifetime. I guess the Sagan Trade was close to that I mean what what do you think was bigger? Thornton was probably much bigger because there wasn't a lot around him like he was the one star. One of the ones I would say. Morton was bigger definitely. Yeah, because Sagan, it was just. A younger a younger player with a ton of potential leaving like there were tons of pieces around. They were still a cup team. They just let him go. It looks bad in hindsight, but at the time it was Kinda, like Oh you know they're getting. Loui Eriksson back was pretty good and saying it didn't fit. Compared to Thornton who is the lifeblood of the offense so? Yeah I mean it's fun to look at these hypotheticals. These alternative Kinda realities you know what could have been I'm just surprised that O'CONNELL accepted the San Jose De Hall I mean Marcos terms fine, but don't know. Samsonov wasn't traded until almost the end of the Oh five. Oh, six season it was, Thornton, was traded to San Jose at the beginning of that season in Samsonov wasn't traded until March ninth to Edmonton Marty reasoner yon starts stops knee. And a second round pick in the Oh six entry draft. You know who that turned out to be. Phil, Kessel no close wait..

"The NFL's different. I think the. MLB is a little different, because the season hasn't even started but with the NHL and NBA It was an act of God. There's nothing you can do to Prevent the halting of. Those Leagues and just call it off. I I'm tired of these leagues. Saying well could do this and we could do that and we are talking about the possibility of. Playing these games and empty buildings like enough already. That's not what's not what I want and I don't think it's. The Super Majority of hockey fans want is some. Truncated playoff format. That gives us a champion for the sake of having a champion I'm not for that at all. I mean I think if they do a playoff format in the platform they have now. It's the exact same. They just can't the regular season. I don't think you have to technically put an asterisk next to it however, if you have a totally different playoff format that is. Not What we have now, robin, exactly. No, then you have to put an asterisk than it's totally different. And it's you know that that Stanley. Cup that team wins is always like well. They want it not. For Cock to twenty, nine hundred and twenty season. You know and the thing is so. they're talking about possibly playing at Ralph. Angst in arena in grand forks North Dakota and then possibly in Manchester New Hampshire, those are the two sides have been thrown right now. Obviously would love New Hampshire because just near us. But the thing is I just think. This is tough for everybody. It's tough especially for team like the Bruins, who doesn't have a huge cup window with the veterans on their team? And this season, which was supposed to be another shot at the cup, another shirt fire eastern conference final potentially is gone. You know probably and the momentum they had was killed David fifty goals again like this is the thing this is I'm going off on tangents here. No, you should, that's. What good podcast! Go ahead it's true, but when I think about like what I just said, so the bruins missing the cup and the Bruins. Cup Window shortening and David Posh fifty goals. All of those aren't even close to problems that I. Care about right now like. I don't care about that stuff right now because. Of what's going on in the world like it makes it seem so silly that I'm sitting here going well, you know the world's burning around me and the economy's tanking and people losing their jobs tonight, but David posh knock didn't hit fifty goals like. So horrible. I asked his wishes to my point. Why are people so worried about getting these leagues back up and running? Get Society backup running well, you, you know these games will give a sense of normalcy. No, they won't not. If people don't have jobs to pay for, you, know playoff tickets, or they're capable bill. They're not gonNA feel. I I feel very strongly that the last thing we should be worried about. Is these leagues coming up with some truncated form of playoff format just to put games on TV so people can watch and. I guess it'd be there for somebody to watch, but you know I go back to two thousand thirteen and that season was incredibly shortened, but the playoffs structure. was legitimized because it was essentially a the playoffs as usual. That's why I think there's no ASTERIK. By the two thousand thirteen Chicago Blackhawks win over the Bruins in the Cup final. Because Blackhawks had to win sixteen games in the Stanley Cup.

You're like the friendly giant that show that CBC show from when we were kids where show he basically You know he'd be he was of course giants and everything so we had this tiny little bits of furniture that he'd invite you to sit in and stuff. It was a horrible wait. It was stupid valves good when Jerome the draft come on jump into the bag here with rusty the rooster rooster bag. That wasn't too Phallic. Well how bad. How bad is rusty's agent okay when the CBC and Bob Homey? Who's the giant? I don't know who the voice of Jerome the draft was. The agent comes back and go. I got this great deal for. You'RE GONNA you're gonNA spend all your time in this smelly dried up sack okay. And it doesn't seem like great. Accommodations defy the agent. Get something else. They give me a trailer. I want to be in my trailer. You know when you GO DIV on the director. You don't say I'll be in my bag. Yeah well although maybe they. Maybe the agent was really good. Steve and renegotiated when the CBC said. You're GONNA live inside. Bob homeys bag okay. We're GONNA do that every show just reaches down and pulls and the as I know no no. We're going to do a little bag hanging from the from the wall okay That just a immediately reminded me of one of the most horrifying stories I was ever told it was a guy round the scoreboard at the triple. A Baseball Stadium here in Ottawa. Great Guy and he told me he had had a sesame. Yup I quite famously at the Secta me because I lost a super bowl. Bet I'll get it done. Get it done tell you? Why if the rams don't win this and cover. That was New England one. I think we're rams are favored by 'cause you can hack away at my scrotum now. That's a gamble fan. There's a Fan holy man anyway. This fellow wanted to chime in on vasectomies. He said okay. I got a story for you. I guess he was. He just had his news feeling pretty good about it and is obviously an incision that has to happen in the boys or in the area and he's down there is gets home late at night and he's you know as you do kind of cleaning up down there lathering up. His Middle Finger went right into the whole inside his own bag also. He's immediately horrified. He starts running up to his wife and he's sitting there put my finger. It didn't get stuck in there but here he is with his big lathered bag happening. Goes UP TO SLEEP. Well this Oh my God I gotta whole anyway. It was horrifying where the way told well. That's something Steve. For many years. I tried to do myself just to give this. A whirl hurts by. Did you ever go through the process? I don't think so what remember and I duNNo. I forget if I did. I remember I've had a hernia operation and I had the idea I had because my mother died of colon cancer so I had the colonoscopy done. Okay yeah that tonight. Sound Fun I just. I remember because as I was getting put out I might have said while you're in there. Can you check out the vast death Franz or whatever it is fixed that up? But I can't remember. I can't remember so well I if you're asleep in. That's that's understandable. But if you're even remotely awake no man ever forgets whether or not. They had a vasectomy. Get your finger out of your bag. Come on come on good God. Suchinda cleaned that up before the before the people arrived for dinner. You know Jesus let us launch. In case there was an interesting story. I thought in the score Joe Thornton and this is our computing web poll today. Should Joe Thornton be speaking this way about a team? He still on a better situation. He still in so. The trade deadline came and went and Joe Thornton quite clearly wanted to go somewhere else for a chance to win a Stanley Cup But he went public with it. This is quote. He says as you get older you realize you only have so many shots at this thing you know it would have been nice to have a chance at the Stanley Cup. I wanted a shot. I've been hunting this thing down for twenty two years. He's forty years of age he had signed a one year. Two million dollar deal to stay with sharks but of course as we all know by now the sharks absolutely suck this year right and he said Fairly coordinated tsn. They say there was interest in Thornton on deadline day but not from the elite team so he was willing to waive his no movement clause to join a legitimate cup contender but not one of these. You know middle of the road teams. That were just trying to get into the playoffs. And I don. I thought that was a crazy thing. Not Not Insane. But it's like what are you doing like what? What are your teammates? GonNa think of you or your fans well. A totally agree totally agree. It's what I was reading that this morning and If you're if you're Doug Wilson and GM and you hear this and and maybe Doug Wilson knew this all along anyway okay. He's probably had this conversation with Joe. The he apparently had a no movement clause or somebody was more than willing I think he says it has only if you have a legit chance right That he said I want. I WANNA move so I expect he had that conversation with. Doug can you trade me if you can find me a nice place where I got a shot at the Stanley Cup? Okay and Doug says we'll see what we can do pal okay salaries and the problem. He signed a one year. Two million dollar deal and probably the reason he did. That is for exactly what he's saying if it doesn't work out this year. But if you're Doug Wilson everything that Joe Thornton said when he went public with that is okay. Let's look at that Joe so you want me to send you to a team. That has a good shot at the Stanley Cup in the playoffs. Hey Joe that's why we kept you on this team. Okay Joe okay. That's why we gave you a one year deal. That's why we did keep you and then you know and renegotiated the deal with. That's that's what we want to do here. Joe When a Stanley Cup and by the way having shot you don't forget to say I've worked at this for twenty two years. If I'm Doug Wilson. I'm going exactly Joe. So how is that a bunch of value for us to throw you out there and get get someone from an elite team or draft picks? You haven't won one Joe in twenty two years yet. You're talking like if a team gets me right now. I'M GONNA keep the drive alive to the Stanley Cup. That's that's what it looks like. He's saying sure. So it's it's sort of like you got to be kidding me Joel you know. I don't blame them for thinking. It blame him for hoping for it but to articulate it so that the fan base that your teammates all hear it. I don't know it just leaves if I were a fan of Joe Thornton and the sharks. If I were a teammate of Joe Thornton it would certainly leave a bad taste in my mouth. Well I think so. And every comedy make Steve. I'm saying again. If I'm Doug Wilson go you know Joel All that. Shit you said those three points you know. I want to go to a team with a Stanley Cup. I've tried for twenty two years to get this point number two and by the way I'm forty years old and Wilson is going to go. Let's look at all three of those Joe and I couldn't agree with you more okay. So where's the fucking attraction for me to throw you out there? You know you haven't won in twenty two years okay. You're forty years old and and you know I don't know if you're my third point. Was there one that Stanley you know you went to the final fifteen or sixteen or whenever it. San Jose went there and and so we go. Keijo you shot and by the way you were five years younger. Yep Okay and had to be moved to. It's not like he has no interest. Pierre Lebrun from tsn says three or four teams were interested in Thornton ahead of the trade deadline. Now those are going to be playoff teams or teams that have a chance of the playoffs. like at least that represents an opportunity to potentially win a Stanley Cup but because they weren't the elite contenders he decided he wouldn't waive his no move clause to join them like. I don't know Joe Thornton's been paying attention but it's a now a league. Where if you get in you have a chance. So I don't know why he's being this picky. If this is something. That's his big dream of his. And the other thing is it becomes laughable when he says I want to be traded to a team that has a shot at the Stanley Cup. Well for fucking throw your name on that Heap Joe. Every player in the League every single player in the league whose worth his weight in salt says. I want to hope we win a Stanley Cup. That's why I'm here. You know so. Wow that's amazing job. You know. We never thought of that. Joe That you wanted to win a stanley the way sharks fans are probably feeling about Joe Thornton comments it would sort of be. I don't know reminiscent of how sense fans probably felt by Daniel Alfredsson without knowing much of the background of how that probably went down. There was a lot of people that were like. Let you go into Detroit. You're signing with Detroit. Imagine if you had to do that okay. Imagine if that was a bylaw in the that when a player like Joe Thornton in his circumstance where they come forward and they've they've reached the minimum of no Stanley Cup in so many years in their imagine they said okay. You've got to trade these people and they have to be to a contender. Think about that. Joe Okay there would be fucking seven hundred and fifty contracts. We'd have to look at every year. Every player would love that every single fucking player. So he's out to lunch. Yeah meanwhile I think maybe we're out to lunch based on what the listeners have to say some of the feedback we have on our RB computing web poll today in what it really sucks for. Big Joe tell the fans if they want true to spare pull on a Sans Jersey R I P J G P now that being said five years from now this ends could have a team worth. Investing in the future is bright. Peer Pru writes if I were a die hard San Jose fan. I probably would've wanted that for him as well. It sucks balls but hey there's always next year Joe. Imagine big Joe in Pittsburgh Sylvia rights no issues for what Joe Gay for the team. The guy has been running after this for two decades. He doesn't finally year if a shark fan. I wanted him traded to a contender to try and win the prize. Joe Does offer anything to this shark team right now other than leadership. Big Rick there never really been many players asking out of San Jose. It's usually the opposite. It's so nice there that the players Never WanNa leave in fact many. Go back and retire there. Joe Would Look Great in Boston for a run this season though. Oh well Michael Hammond. I think he's earned the right to say he's disappointed and Joe Album rights. I agree with some of the comments. The guy's around for a long time may not have a lot left. I would have granted. His request is the right to be upset and I don't mind him speaking out. I don't think it's a case of the sharks grant his request or not. I think they probably would have liked to have helped him out. In that regard off you go to a Stanley Cup contender. The reality is what level of asset is he. Is he going to help? A team that considers itself true elite contender. When the guy's got twenty something points so far this season and has certainly lost a step as far as speed. Go so anyway. We're dead wrong as far as the good listener goes but that is our computing web poll today James..

"They didn't do it in game seven the other night and lost the game. Chris I of San Jose Sharks seminal favourite because this could be the last shot for Joe Thornton to win the Stanley Cup. You know, kind of a Ray Bork situation. Right. I mean, he's played in this down the Cup. Final back in two thousand sixteen but has never won the Stanley Cup. I'm not sure he's going to retire. I would think if he won the Cup. He would. But great great. Great question. And yeah, I've got a soft spot in my heart firm as well. Matter of fact, I don't buy told the story on game is conduct. When I worked at WFAN. There was a call or by the name of Jose in Manhattan, who's a big hockey fan. And he was able to get the co the number to the newsroom, and when I would work overnights. He called me in the newsroom, we talk hockey because obviously the radio station wasn't talking any hockey. So it talked to him about hockey. And he wanted to see Joe thorns first game. If you remember going to the ninety seven season, so this will be the ninety seven draft. The Bruins had two first round picks. So they selected Joe Thornton, and they also selected Sergei Samsonov. And both we're gonna make their debuts against the Los Angeles Kings in Boston and the ninety seven the NHL is all screwed up. They open the season with one game and wasn't even like a nationally televised game or special game opening to the ninety seven ninety eight season. One game in Boston, Bruins and the kings. And the Bruins are awful at the time. Thus having the two first round picks the first pick overall and the kings were in anything special, and it was just like one row game by itself in those like nobody in the building. So he wanted to go, but he'd have eaten a car. So he asked me says I got three tickets to the game. Would you wanna a buddy wanted to take and take me to the game of Boston? I had a friend Bill Tanum who's a huge Bruins fan. So we picked up Jose in Manhattan. We drove up the Boston. And we went to the game problem was in the season Thornton broke, his wrist or his hand or something didn't play in the game. So I could have seen Joe Thornton's first ever game in the NHL, but he didn't play Sergei Sampson. Off did. But that's the beginning of his career. And now we're getting to the end of it. So yeah, I have a soft spot for Joe Thornton. I would love for his last game in the National Hockey League to be lifting that trophy. I really wouldn't mind seeing that David says so much to say about what it's been witnessed in the first round of the playoffs. So I guess I'll ask the sixty four thousand dollar question was that the greatest first round you've ever seen in the NHL ploughs while here's the problem with remembering the first round even this year as great as it was second third and fourth rounds. Obviously the fourth round be just the one series if they match with the intensity, then we're going to have less of a memory around one because it is still just round one. So could there have been a great round one back in the day? But you don't think about it? Because maybe round two is just as good around. Three was just as good off the top of my head, David. I think to answer your sixty four thousand dollar question. Yeah. The I don't think I've ever remembered a series with this many up since we've seen so many I three two one seeds done in the first round all four division winners done in the first round. So just. The top of my head. I can't think of any other. But we might have less of a memory of this round two ends of being just as equal Bill says not really a question just around the idea that the potential series deciding game seven of the honors Cain series will be the second day of back to backs is absolutely ludicrous to me, hopefully, the series doesn't even go that far good point because game six and seven of the hurricanes islander series those games. We'll be back to back, and you know, you're trying to fit everything for time..

It didn't look I honestly guys usually during the the intermission, you might look elsewhere. But I wait to see the beard, and he looked pretty clean so good good for the brand is is Friday night going to be we're going to see this thing. Get dialed up intensity wise because I thought that second period got a little chippy, and what do you expect? I mean, I know there's not as much fighting in the playoffs. But what do you expect the rest of the series? These teams are become rival. Can you believe it how much rivals? These teams are two years. Two years. Two years Vegas Golden Knights coming last year. They go all the way to the Stanley Cup finals. But it was a it was a tough loss by them last year. And you know, they went out and get Mark stone. They get to patch ready and staff to add to their team. So they're better we air Carlson gusts Nyquist and we make our team better. So what are we gonna see we're going to see a physical another physical brand of hockey tomorrow night? It's going to have an edge to it. Because now you don't wanna go to nothing to the sharks.

You see what their record is my guys today. The great best in all the Western Conference on the road trip. That there's. Mike sincerity from LA I watched there's only Larry watch Mike, you told me five minutes in five minutes. All right. There's only one team with more points in the sharks. You know that you join know what team it is. It is Tampa Bay. I was gonna say the name. Yeah. No. The Tampa Bay is the only team in hockey with with more points in the sharks. Well, this the sharks are the highest scoring team in the NHL since the first of the year they are scoring and scoring and scoring. They had seven goals last night. It was against a nineteen year old going, Michael GPA tro, and great, you know, just a great night. San Jose is the only team in the NHL now with five twenty goal scorers. And I was asking Mike before the show Presidents Cup trophy sharks or this year sharks. Who's the better which team is is the better team? I thought Mike would say presents cope trophy year sharks. Which was Mikey. What year that weight? Excuse me. Hey, anyway. Mike said that this year sharks team has the best chance to you know, to to hoist the Cup Lord Stanley could be coming to San Jose this year. Mike does the National Hockey League? Want a championship in San Jose? Or are we still considered? Do you think the National Hockey League wanted the championship in Raleigh, North Carolina? No, they did not National Hockey League. The champion in Dallas. No, they did not National Hockey wanted to champion in Tampa Bay. Matt nice place to go for the vacation. What I would say Tampa Tampa Bay. I'm just playing on the nine thousand places I'd rather go than Tampa bowl. You're right there next to Saint Petersburg. You never been to Saint Petersburg. No. I'm just saying. I'd I'd rather. I'd rather go to Miami Beach place in the state. No. But, but I think if you've been to Saint Petersburg, get to see the Phillies, workout, okay? All right. I put it that way. Because stop by the trop. Oh, so Ed DeBartolo lives in an asshole that well, you said it I didn't say no, I'm just saying. I mean you've been to Tampa right vacation. Is there hanging out with Reuben foster back in November? Okay. Rubin. Had a good time. Oh my God. Trip this year jumbo past Mr. hockey Gordie Howe for fifth place. Our ninth place on the NHL, all time assists list. Twenty-three time all star Gordie Howe Gordie Howe played from nineteen forty six to nineteen seventy-one a guy retired at age what we retired a few times. He retired at fifty two you remember he came back though and just played a game. Just so he could say plate in each decade. And that's even if you ask anybody, they'll tell you best hockey players Gretzky, Bobby ORR Gordie, Howe whatever order you want. But it's Gretzky one. And then most people have Bobby ORR then Gordie Howe anyway chill Thornton. Now. In in some great great, you know, lofty company for sure a thousand fifty assists for jumbo a thousand forty nine for Gordy. So I was asking Mike. I'm looking at the all time assists list is Romans at one thousand sixty three that's Detroit Red Wings. He's gotta make you ask. Demotes? There you go play with the Rangers as well around thousand seventy nine Paul Coffey eleven thirty five the great cough. I think all those may be possibly gettable Yaar mere Yager eleven one thousand one hundred and fifty five he's got twenty more than Paul Coffey. Ray Bork is next. Anyway, I'm just looking at the list, and when I get to Gretzky Gretzky has jumble Thornton has one thousand fifty assists. He's one of the greatest assists guys in the league today. You know, you think anybody who's who's great with the puck on the stick? Finding open open teammate Joe Thornton guests, how many assists the great one finished with. Is a great number one all time. I'll tell ya. I have no idea nineteen hundred and sixty three Joe Thornton for his great as he is. And he's Joe Thornton sold right now. How old is jumbo? He's mid thirty s or later. He's older. He's late thirties. Oh Nabet bike, you better. Look that up. I'm not thirty nine great Wayne Gretzky at nine thirty nine. Well, he doesn't look like it is waste skit great hair. Great hair, but Wayne Gretzky nineteen hundred and sixty three assists. He's almost Joe Thornton is only a little bit over half way to Gretzky. Yeah. You want your mind blown even Larry that blows my mind, all your mind, even more Gretzky did that in less than fifteen hundred games Thornton hit that fifteen hundred game Mark month ago or so so there's only like seven players in the league to have fifteen hundred games four hundred girl goals thousand assists, Gretzky's not on that list. Because he did all that stuff that you're telling us in less than fifteen hundred games. I'll give you more on Gretzky. And you tell me if I'm wrong, I would look at Larry. But you don't have it in your hockey notes Gretzky without being a June. You know what? I mean. What do you mean? Well, when I say Gundi had Marty McSorley, that's good knowledge. He didn't have to fight. He's he's about the only guy. You look at that list. That did not fight. He did it all on skill. He did not do it by being. Some of these some of these guys like Gretzky Gretzky ever. Mark Messier liked to fight. Of course, he won the last Stanley Cup with the Rangers. You will know he's still beloved ninety or ninety four. He's third on the all-time assists list. It's Gretzky Ronnie Francis. Mark Messier Ray Bork Yaar mere Yager top five. But how about how that's so unbelievable to me that show Thornton could have over a thousand assists. And yet he's nine hundred thirteen shy of Wayne Gretzky. I mean who has done more to obliterate the record book, Jerry Rice in the NFL or Gretzky NHL? Well, hey, there may not have been a team in San Jose. There may not have been the sharks. If Gretzky hadn't come to Los Angeles. I just looked it up. My guess how many fighting penalties? He got called for how many fights in his career. Yeah. I I was gonna say seven to fill. All right, Mike, you agree with this. So without Wayne Gretzky, conquering LA, we may not have had the sharks. That's a good call showed that a team in Cal. And yet, and again, Laura, I don't mean to spoil your was when he went to Phoenix as a player as a as a coach and owner he couldn't couldn't make it popular there. You know what I mean because he's not playing. Just. But Phoenix his name didn't carry the same Bill. Let me ask you this will the sharks. I mean because I I went to the sharks game of a month ago. I came I've taken in a few years now, it was a good time and their fans are super into it. They've been to the Stanley Cup. They didn't win if they had would they be mainstream. Do they need a Stanley gene hoist the Cup to then get into the Niner? Giants, you know, the the mainstream bay area sports fan who isn't from Chicago Philly New York Boston that literally grew up in the sunset grew up in Daly city grew up on the peninsula is that person going to be like as passionate about the shark someday. What we'll take we'll talk about that right there. We'll take a Stanley Cup finals. Saying they made the Stanley Cup finals. They didn't win it. Right. And Mike agreed came back the next year because they didn't win Stanley Cup finals wasn't enough to change the momentum and the and the conversation among. Everybody loves a champ. We'll company bandwagon fans. There's all kinds of people. I go to church on Sunday. There's like nineteen people wearing warrior jerseys that I swear if Winston garland and Chris Mullin and Mitch Richmond walked in on the they wouldn't even recognize these guys. Now, the chargers picked a bad time to go to their first final because of the very same time. The warriors are playing in the NBA finals against Cleveland for the second straight year. That is good knowledge. They get snuffed out by a damn good penguins team. All right. If San Jose climb the mountain, and there was a parade and people could really wrap their arms around it. I think it would. I don't think they would be anywhere near giants. Niners warriors. But they would they would breakthrough into the mainstream. I ever mentioned that right where the shark arena is my dad used Renault. Okay. Arrogate right there right there. I was probably the goal to the right to the south to the right? The southern end. I probably. Swam in those arrogation ditches, right where Joe Thornton did his thing. Lasted six five O says Wayne Gretzky had five points in a game ninety five time in his career. And also somebody says carried us know Jack about hockey, but he does know who Wayne Gretzky's daughters, probably married to the great golfer Johnson. Yeah. Dustin Johnson Johnson. Mary to the great Janet Jones wanted to drive, by the way, DJ had a drive into McCovey cove the same night in the pre game the night before Matt Cain went perfect. Who's the guy? What area code the guy took a shot at me? What is that? I've it's really every area code. Okay. Thank you four zero eight floor. Heaps your peeps are turning eight. Mr. wise guy, you probably didn't know that Lenny Dykstra, bought Wayne Gretzky's house in Thousand Oaks did you and then the poor guy couldn't afford it ended up they repossessed it. But did you know that eight if you're gonna come come strong next Babbitt? We'll let him get his thank you might. We'll get his impressions of the youth quake that happened at the top of the hour with pars siding with the giants. And also her color Murray as totally out on Cuyler or Schutte believe that maybe he'll play baseball at some point. We'll get his thoughts Tyler Murray. I give you five million dollars. And I don't even bother to call. You just you'll find out on Twitter. I'm Steffan you on these sports later. Gary and Larry on KNB are six eighty the sports leader after lunch hour, it's time for vision.
"joe thornton" Discussed on Spittin' Chiclets
"Give it a try and get in the game. Once again, we can't thank revolt Midi and mock Andre Fleury enough that was a great interview. Like, you say what we do them in person that just so much better nature. Commitment kid is absolutely full of personality out a lot a lot of fun talking to him. I can't have him on yet. We did mention before the the views the flies man, they on the verge of using a record tying seventh goal tended the season a picked up Mike McKenna from waivers if he does he will become the seventh goalie to start the season. And it's only January is that they've been three other teams in history that I've used seven goals in the season. That's all of the costs of an entire season. Brian Elliott was the purported number one. He's been out since November. You should be practicing within a couple of weeks. But it's crazy that the only in January and they've already gone through seven guys sixties guys of at least two games. Oh, it's not like the call up Rando here. And there feels like it's an e bug situation. Waiting to happen. They're gonna have to pull some guy off of off of street clothes and start him at some point. But we've been hearing about bonuses this week. I thought bonuses. Would done. I thought we talked about before guys didn't get bonuses anymore. But apparently, that's not the case biz couple big bonuses. We Elias Benneton got a couple. Asta matters. He hit some bonus levels to you got a pretty good bonus story FIS right business. Well, because we were talking about the pilot residents. I went there and stop by. And and he goes, hey, listen to as bonus story, by the way, Taylor Pyatt. He'll never come on the podcast, even the thought of it gives them exactly unbelievable guy. Just some people are just like not down to come on and tell stories and we're cool with that. But I get to tell a second hand story now. And then I looked at the good guy. So thank you buy it. And here it goes. So he started off his career with the islanders used drafted first round eighth overall. And you guys might know more about this. So Joe Thornton was drafted first overall at that time, there was really no way to compensate these young guys were coming in and making impacts right away. So his Asia kind of set the tone as far as setting up all this bonus structure, you he was like one of if not the first guy to set up all these crazy bonuses. Like if you get twenty goals, you get an extra two hundred and fifty K if you get this get extra that so Pisey was. One of those guys drafted first round eighth overall. He ended up getting all these crazy bonuses in his contract. And at the time to if you didn't hit them in your first year, they would roll over and the money would roll over to the second years. Well, so basically like if you eventually hit in your first for years and paid out. So he ends up getting traded over to buffalo in his first off season after first year in the NHL, and he actually got sent down to Rochester the miners to start the season. Halfway through the season. The team is struggling handed up getting called up had a great second half. Well, he ended up having a plus minus bonus he finished that year. Tangles tennis going into the last game he needed to pluses in order to hit a bonus. So he ends up getting put on a line with MIR slosh attand who lead their team in scoring and sure enough in that last game season mind, you it was robberies last game ever Pisey ends up getting a plus early on the first period right away. And then and a few guys on the team were aware of this bonus. How much is this for I'm wait-? I'm waiting to wrap it. And I'm also waiting for the to look up the guy. So Rhett Warrener was one of the guys who knew about the bonus fast forward. They're up by goal and the clock winding down. There's a whistle. The other team calls a timeout Rhett Warrener goes over to Lindy Ruff and goes, hey, Pisces a plus minus bonus you put him on the ice..
