But like he's not he's nowhere near where he's going to be potentially why he's i think he's gonna be tough. I've obviously i'm a homer. I know that. I am but undoubtedly i would have to say. He's going to be close a top five in the league when it was going to win over him. Yeah ep forty leaves and they have no goalscoring. Fuck off okay. Anyway but yeah so i mean at least my top three. I would have andrea vassilis mark audrey flurry and low key. Maybe john gibson. Yeah gabi f- i might put him. I mean considering. He plays on the ducks and he had this season. He had dude but not only the season. The seasons bro. He's been consistently good on that team. He's been the only thing keeping them from being the bottom of the barrel.

We can't really argue about because he has been healthy. He hasn't been healthy two seasons. So i mean i to be honest with you. I really don't know about the season. Prior i know obviously had issues in the bubble but i think he was injured in the regular season to the bubble was a family matter. No no i know. But i think in a regular season yet injury was healthy and then obviously a family matter then. Last season he had a back injury. I think it was or a hip injury. One of one of the two and so we haven't really seen a healthy or we haven't really seen much like on paper like two years Two plus years. Yeah you know so. I kind of obviously false backburner on our on our monitor's here so maybe next season we you know we see different. Rask i know bruce cassidy was saying how we should see him starting next season then they signed linus ullmark. They have jeremy swain. Still i think yes. Women's nah it's like what the fuck i know. That's an interesting conversation to harassment..

We're going to shift to a positive story and that's tampa bay. Lightning coming up in just a minute here but allied thoughts on the buffalo sabres because who try and make sense of what's going on there. Yeah it's not going so well it's not going so well. Mom feel for kevin adams to some degree you know. You've got an inexperienced general manager who has a very strong minded head coach in ralph kroger and you know some wonder how that's kind of muddied things up in in buffalo as well. But you have any idea how this is going to end in buffalo. It seems like a lot of change. it seems like it's it's not going to end. Well i mean like right now they just. They're not even competitive you know they've got they've got forty six schools four in twenty games. Jack eichel i. I think he's still got two goals in eighteen games. Taylor hall hasn't scored in twenty jeff. Skinner has got a goal this year. He's got eighteen goals. In the last one hundred games. He's played wound so couple out with rasmussen crystalline in their best defenseman who had covert and really had a struggle recovering from it. Linus ullmark their number one goal. He's been out like you couple all that together in your like like they don't have a chance in all and they're not even close but the the problem becomes so. How do you fix it. You know the other night in new york that the two thousand fans that are allowed in the building or channing. We want eichel right like are they gonna make a move with eichel. You can't trade skinner. He's got seven years left now after this one at nine million per that's not happening taylor holes on a one year deal like. He says he's opened to resigning. Yeah he's got new goals course. He's open to resigning so there. The problem the easy thing to say his tear it down start again. We'll haven't they already done that. Nine years with no playoffs. If they trade jack eichel and walk on from taylor hall your another five years by the time the guy whoever you're going to draft is gonna make an impact on your team enough to really.

"Though you you take a step back as the player and even if he's telling you listen you just need a break in your mind. The team needs to win. And this guy's choosing to not have me be a part of the club to go. Try to get a win. So it's like no matter what you can say that ralph where we can say. He doesn't have a dog. Which i'm not saying that's not true. Where like he's probably definitely willing to give them a chance again. But ralph Looks at his entire team as any coach india and says like i don't love his game he's not necessarily in my dog goes. I just don't think he's that good. And i think that skinner right now. I mean he's skating was always different right. He was able to move but it was the opening up of the hips and there were many different ways. He was able to create space herself and skating through the neutral zone. He'd be like okay. It wasn't always in a straight line. Maybe he's had injuries in the past isn't the same player anymore but to have that much more time at nine million. They can't trade him they're only hope. Is that the crack and would take them. And ron francis was in carolina when they drafted him and jason barley assistant. Gm gave him the contract in buffalo. Right so maybe they're yourself. It's an inside job. I don't know you hold half the dole and we'll take them we're not paying them that what you oughta. Who gave on what you're insinuating. It's an inside job. Isn't the ira. It'll be a hell of a conspiracy and you love going to spend the next two weeks in the computer castigate. He'll like allred youtube till four this morning so to get serious about it. I don't know tough time. You got imagine eichel not going to stand much longer for this. You said he's a one year deal. I don't know if he's regretting the decision. I don't know how how what's going on inside the locker room but you can gain some pretty good assets as far as drafting capability. I in maybe get some young prospects. I just think it's gonna get worse before it gets better and and you have pieces that you can move now and you mentioned one of what you're in control of the the the no trade or no move clause kicking the next year you'd have to agree to it or pick y'all of a sudden you're getting the list to the teams that would take in a tough situation for the organization ultimately though i say blow at the up now and it's gonna get bad for two years but at least at that point it's gonna turn around to where you don't want to be in the same position three fucking years from now. I know the problem is it. Was this bad seven years ago and then they got eichel and it was thank god we did it. We went through that time. We're going to. We're going to go and now it's like. Oh my god wait. We're doing that again. I didn't work this good. He's he's gonna go find somebody else. one other thing sign. Heart's been good this year. I mean that's been a positive note. He's easing second in team scoring right now behind all of sudden who who's another good young stud so they got some pieces like we know today's nhl with with everything going on you can turn around quickly but holy fuck man. This is like one organization. I was pulling for. I think i might have had the making playoffs this year. Yeah might be getting first overall pick. All of a sudden has been one of the few bright spots second in the league power play goals with six but honestly i don't think it was a bad play by halsey because he probably figured we'll even if they suck this year. I'll get traded the deadline. He could very well end up on it. You probably will sir. I mean you wanna plant a season but it gives him a little bit more control in that sense and he was able to potentially fetches number. So i mean he's a he's our body and i hope that he's able to get moved and go to an away better situation and he's able to get paid accordingly but i can't imagine that he expected it to go this bad. Yeah i mean he might have his cake and eat it too if he ends up with a good squad at more tough new so buffalo gago linus ullmark and the one of the few bright spots. He's going to be able to at least a month with the low body injury. So it's like the more what's at the mar more rains. It pours as easy when it rains. Or pledge out biz. Help me out but so either. Way man yeah. We don't like the pick on buffalo. We know the great fans. But it's a situation that you know we got to talk about so or the more things change the more they remain the same. Yeah that's another one that but let's move over to the capitals. They had a great week three. Oh wouldn't one week. Seven point jumped in the first place. Hank lundquist did skate the other day which is great to see but he's still months away from plan they're not even putting any sort of timetable on it but vernon caps man. I mean they had a couple little bumps in the road but they're looking pretty shop lately. I haven't been watching much shawn. I open my mouth about the caps. Miss playoffs this year. That tells you the extent of my hockey knowledge that division when we when we watch and like you know we've got the anders penguins stream on sunday. Thanks to labatt blue light. You just see like the pittsburgh had success against the islanders all of a sudden the take it to them. They went on to nothing game boring as hell. Thanks islanders and then you just look like pittsburgh's not even in the playoffs right now and so that that division is so strong where the rangers fans had way higher expectations. And what's going on there now. Granted they're falling away quickly with buffalo and the devils in terms of like. This is a five horse race Washington's i don't want to say the entire time it heads and shoulders above the rest of the division because i think boston's looked so good through certain stretches. They had a tough go. Rangers and islanders pounded them. I'm kind just jumping all over the division more. So because i bring up like washington's good but that that is such.

"Two seasons have been low Maybe that's an effective in being on that bottom line. I don't think he was on the bottom line for the unders and even the couple years previous four buffalo so it's definitely limited role so you're probably not going to get that much out of him but let's say he goes back to forty points. I mean obviously again bottom foresaw. I don't see that happening bottom six bottom line. I don't know but you know you got good. Contributed contributors from him. You know sam reinhart. He's a good guy who's been is part of this team for years. I know they just resigned him at five point two got ican there thompson so that third line is incredible and then even bottom line i would say you can get some goalscoring out of yeah. I think less of a defensive six and they're they're trying to pad up the scoring on the bottom six. Yeah but then it but looking at their at their defense Yeah that's when you kind of have a couple of question marks but what point do you trade a great defensive team for high scores. You know we've seen that a lot with high powered is scoring teams. See i feel like the thing with The buffalo defense is you know they obviously have rasmin stallion defenseman At like twenty one twenty. Two are no. He's only he's only twenty. I don't even know but so great defense style lean. He's yeah he's like twenty or twenty one and then you have a few players. Such as rasmussen salonen colin miller who are all like solid top four defenceman. They're like third fourth defensemen. So you know it's like you ca. I don't think it's a bad deekor I wouldn't say it's bad. You know. I mean it could be improved upon but anything to get improved upon where. I think that it's kind of unproven as goaltending with linus ullmark and carter hutton. Well all mark. That mistaken needs to resign this year as an end of next season didn't he. I think it's next season now. They just sign them all right so he signed on your deal. Yeah okay. that's why. I'm getting confused. So yeah it's a one year deal. I mean he's twenty seventy at that point. Where like if he's going to be anything is going to be now. I mean last season. He had a nine a nine one. Five save percentage so that's not bad to sign it goes against grenades small sample of thirty four games. Yeah so he definitely split to season. But i think that this team and i don't wanna i don't wanna say on an unproven team. 'cause watch us just get caught here but i think that could be good. I think we they are an improvement on proven team though. I think we could definitely see something if everything goes well. Yeah yeah. I'm with that cool. I like that all right so i think to wrap things up for today's episode. We wanna touch on the last Top unrestricted free agents We have ten. that remain. Unsigned here that we kind of want to go through Kind of over like a little bit. I guess of the rumors about them right now. And our thoughts. Yeah right I guess number one want start with them Oh we made this mistake before to ten up. Let's go from china. We'll save the best for last so number ten. This is more than ten to. We wanted to do ten. Oh my god off sports net so oh great. Good number ten for you. Yeah so on this article number ten this is.

"Million comes out to three point six, million, a year Chris tyranny also avoided arbitration signed for two years, seven, million three and a half million dollars cap it. He came over from the Eric. Carlson bounty that trades looking better and better for auto every day and they also signed unrestricted free agent Alex Genyk to a one year one, point zero, five, million, dollar deal. This. Sense man it could be pretty frisky next ya whenever it is. I tell you what good for him I feel that like he's a guy were like he's high-octane he needs to fire and all the skill cylinders. We saw guy like, Anthony, declared goal there and and do what he did with the players coach in a new environment and. They're allowed to like. Play a little bit more their style of play and you know, China, bouncing around a little bit here and I, think given with teams at the fact that maybe there's not that pressure to win now he could you know re-instill that confidence in his game which I mean if you don't have it in your. I mean to when you're that highly skilled if you don't have your confidence like you're pretty much. Useless. As a depth player, he just doesn't have those types of tools. So a perfect non-risk deal for the Ottawa Senators I hope he does well, he's a great kid. He's never really been able to to stick anywhere in and kind of make make his imprint on any organization. Excuse me. So I just kinda compared to the Duke Lehrer situation where he's a guy who went there found that and he was the same type guy like he just couldn't land on his feet and then you organization he went to. So Galley Hope you hope you lander feet pal. I also like Connor Brown man that must have been tough to get traded from Toronto Toronto got all these these young pieces and he goes over to Ottawa and. You know lashes disaster for them but he was good ice skates he compete so I that signing a lot and I think that that Ottawa Ottawa's. Surprise. Now I think they're still going to be. Not They're not a playoff team but their way better than last year. How many you keep seeing names added he keying guys signing and? It's definitely not going to be a walk in the park most nights for whoever's playing against them like the way it was you know this past season. Be Betting on a lot next season whenever it is another thing too I. Glanced over his Gaucho. Next scored thirty in this league I think he had twenty nine a month for all one year like I know like it was one thirty. But. Are we can move on I'll back you up the. which. said the ninety four world series a little while ago but that was the the strike lock. I I was like something sound off about ninety four. All I can think is the Rangers. Combination of that between that and between that and Elliot's coming up you're going to get by the way I sh I just finally got his name right for the first time I liked the EP forty. That's. Off The glass and that's his new name to me Pini. Save is also had a couple of guys that avoided arbitration Sam Reinhart Buffalo the agreed a one year deal five, point, two, million they also avoided abitration with Goalie Linus ullmark he re up for one year two, point, six MIL. Ryan Hi that's a pretty good price tag farm five on five point two all chime in on this when I feel like they're like this, his last contract was just prove it contract i. felt he proved it to a certain degree. There was that one incident about him giving up on a play earlier in the season that got amplified. So that seems to be fresh in people's minds as far as maybe that's why they didn't i. think it's new GM in there we've come to the situation where halls over here. So like a I. Don't know maybe him and Jack had amazing chemistry where we use some of that money in order to keep him around and also I think reinhart's GonNa plan the second line and not the season be playing was Schlaug's but I think what they're seeing as a can you drive your online like can you even take a step up from there and then I think that warrants him probably getting what he might have been expecting to get this off season but given with what's happened I think five hundred to five point to a great number. I know the him and Michael are great buddies I. think that if he's able to prove it again I think that I think they should keep him I think he's I think he's a decent piece. He's a good room guy. I think there's yes there's some things to improve on but once again like this team, all around has not been very good. So it's not like that's a that's a piece. You Might WanNa keep around considering you haven't had many better pieces than him who who's a wrist align Eichel that's it. It was the only to think of over a decent amount of time who have been consistent in that organization. and. He will be a restricted free agent again after this one year deal at he's averaging just under twenty two goals a year. So obviously, another guy, he has a good year, he'll to fully get what to forgot i. He basically. Four, what you get four and a half. But I'm thinking more from an age standpoint where Ryan Reinhard still what he's twenty four. Twenty five soon, I may he's he's going to get your twenty goals. He's going to get your fifty points and then that's if he makes that leap all the sudden maybe it's thirty and it's And it's sixty, five, seventy points I. I like him as a player and that team struggle you can't get rid of guys like that right now. I. Mean if the Sabers ever gotten to the playoffs, they were deeper team in a better team and they got it in the net plan centered on the top line and then reinhard turned into a rule even a better player and he like he's kind of like he could be David crazy i. know that's crazy praise and all he's got a long way to go but. You know I don't think he'll ever be ninety point guy but faulk creatures had years. We had seventy points. Regular season led the team in scoring in the playoffs like this guy's really good and he's young. I think that there's no way buffalo could could lose a guy like this at this point. So then you got hall on the first line, then you got you got skinner on the team as well. So let's see also how does with maybe a little less focus on him given that there's not a ton of depth upfront. So maybe thrives I hope he does he's a great guy in Bisbee by the way did not pay him for that appearance. So I hope you get your meal money at some point. I fuel signs to run through here. Let me know if you want to chime in Colorado Resat. I'm sorry. Carson. Restricted free agent devante jobs four year deal worth sixteen point four, Mil four, point one, million dollars cap it I mean. I think this is probably take him maybe shorter term and gamble on himself, but I think of birth. Publiz. Burn the hand was worth two in the Bush to him. Would you agree with that wet in other words like you couldn't be a two year deal and see how he didn't got more money down the line but opted for the security of a forty. Million take care of that. Well, he should be should be good to live on and joyful. Enjoy a happy life I'll say a fun life take that back. I I don't really understand why the island has got rid of them. Maybe we'll learn more but I like his game. I like skates. He looked awesome in the playoffs and now he's making. Very Fair number I think for both sides. If he's going to be the player he showed to be on the islanders this year he could even maybe arguing little underpaid in four years we'll see what happens but I like him. We go right?.

Will you missed the fight? Like everybody else mystify. Because I was I was the the pigeon or so to speak. That wasn't in the game and I put my year. We the fourteenth floor. I knew my role well-poised new my role guys make sure you're not seeing though you'll go. I trust but yeah. It was crazy because so we're up. I don't remember the score. Whatever three to we're up a goal anyway and it's third period then there's me and boorish Bryan bickell view the black aces let's go. Put our gear on. So we're going to start getting her gear on. We're dressed and phillies scores late to tie it like six minutes left in the game to tie it. And we're like motherfucker. All the guys were going to jinx all the guys are going to see us in our gear will. The game goes over time and we dock into like the little massage room phillies like a little closet across from the training room and we had it set up as the massage room. And we're like hiding in there. Then we're like fuck. What if they score and overtime and we gotta take all our gear off? Just feel like this complete loser and like we changed it for all the guys. So we're watching on like a little tiny TV screen in the in the dressing room and cater scores or we didn't offer winning. We ran out to the bench and we stop at the bench and same thing. We're like do we go on the ice. Do not go on the ice because if it's not a goal I don't want to be picking on my shit up escape backing the scene penalty because you're out there and you're on the roster so we went a bucket and we just went out there and celebrated with the guys thank God it was in because I would have felt like a real big donkey escape back off the ice and down the hallway and back into the room. What do you remember about Chicago after that title because just the crowd and that was what people really started? Learn about how crazy the anthem was because they hadn't been good for such a long time. You know and it was just fun to watch the Blackhawks these young studs young team and then I remember your celebrations being crazy. And maybe that's because like right when social media was getting big twitter and stuff but that must have been the craziest couple of weeks year life. It was It was crazy crazy for the single guys. My wife was pregnant with our first saw. It wasn't that crazy but like loser but you can literally do whatever you wanted and it would. It was like we didn't know how it's GonNa go either so it was like day one. It's let's go rocket barring grill and the COP shows up and it's instantly. Assia people like the play. It's like one o'clock in the afternoon on a Tuesday. I don't know what day it was and it was slammed like it was Saturday night. Three in the morning strays and they had like a limo bus. And the police would police escort us. And then they'd roped off so we could get in and out of the bar so we just went like Barda Bar bar will pretty soon this limo bus at five hundred thousand fucking people in this thing. People tasers sitting on the roof and people are like jaw day eight cities on your roof for the Limo bias. Going from bar to bar. It was just like we didn't pay for anything for the whole time. There's nothing like airing is free. We have jokes. Who Go the rank in the morning like free starbucks today free whenever eight. W whatever you're fucking eat for breakfast like everything's free never paid for anything. It was just like I know you're Hawkeye. Your Hawk was any wanted to do. Had this officer officer Tom Baker on Speed that's Dhabi tax at three in the morning. Where our underground can? I'll be right there. Now come into the bar you'll find it. It'll take your home and you're flipping the lights on your people through the the microphone no-holds-barred man aiming you bury a few bodies usual Saturday Chicago couple. Oh my goodness going back to Kane for a second. He the most skilled teammate. You've ever had at any level. Yeah for sure for sure. And I touched on earlier. Like competitiveness like not. You don't have to be a super competitive guy you don't have to run people through the building and you don't have to fight and you don't have to body check but he just is competitive in the sense. He wants the pocket he wants to be the guy and he's a big game player and he plays Bass Games in big games. Ot winners Patrick's clinching games skilled. Smart name competitive. He's a special player. One of the best really. I mean boys have. We pretty much covered everything there is to cover. Chicago because we still have a lot to touch on with La. Is there anything that you WANNA talk about Chicago specifically water? Am I best city in if you guys? Yeah Oh Yeah I. I'm on that train. Yeah if there's your free agent you WanNa sign in a city. I mean the organization. Is they treat you so good they give you any resource possible To give yourself a chance to player that I mean they're American league team gets treated like the NHL it's The Best Organization sports the Model Organization and I feel lucky to of been a part of it really some people forget you spent a year in Edmonton. Now we've talked to some guys from. I forget while I was GonNa say some guys essentially going back home. It's not usually a good story. There's more pressure added to it. More people ringing up their phone for tickets all time you know. They can't wait to get the fuck out what I mean just like I was excited. I to be honest with you okay. Stanley Cup. Didn't play law didn't play in playoffs. I'm to ten worst team. The League play more not opposite played. Less like could barely get on the ice man. It was unbelievable rape from the start. I was like it was just such long on the fourth and a half line from the first day camp literally whatever I know my ability and I know the type of player but I'm just begging for chance. Just give me an opportunity. You know on the you show up and you'd have a different Color Jersey then absolutely everyone and that's not a good sign. Yeah no or. I don't know if this happened you busy but I always knew if I wasn't playing. 'cause assistant coaches wouldn't say good morning to me so I'd always be like oh I'm out tonight. What do you mean? I didn't get a good morning to. He feels bad or he just doesn't even want to look deal with me. You know when they would come say hi to you though and good morning was right before your bags skate. Once everyone left he's gone for the after practice practice. All boy here we go again are good is black aces in the on the Cup runs. That's the only time it's fun. Yeah that's out. Yeah the but what you. We're the WHOA thirtieth thirtieth place by a landslide. Yeah that was tough sledding. Man All my God. Any good player we had was hurt. We're addressing an American pollutant. By the end there were some games and I remember. That was wasn't that the season halls and he got his face stepped onto by party and it was a disaster guys linus ullmark though that was the highlight of the season doing spin instead. Amas T T T rennie. Tom came in and did this after he did that. As on oil change go check out oil change anyone. Is that what it's called? That'll sum it up for you. Oh Oil Changes. Some of the most incredible. Viewing you're falling around a dead last placed team in the League and it was hall and then Magnus priority who you know was Kinda with them is the three stars and then right away. You could tell he wasn't. It wasn't the same player it was just. It was ugly ugly. I was lighting it. Up My just. Having the seat of my life was on fire early heavy on fire abby fire and then boom ankle went out never the same. You know it is. Passion goes away after the body for me. There has to be some positives though. That was a young team. I'm sure you guys had some good times at least off the ice. I mean those guys that have stories all the time eighteen years old and Edmonton Hall and I mean they were legendary more five. I thought it was such a great group of guys though like I duNNo. I had a blast. I love him ski so quiet but funny do great to have beers with I mean. Tanner cracks me up. It was just with pens later on it was. It was a fun team that you just wish you could have been good. Oh Good Laddy Smith yet. Laddis meet on the show. He said he'd come onto. How Green would he be such a pussy? Such you are oldest young guy. I know all this young guy I know you could Busey such pussy. I my wife gave birth. I thought I just newborn babies like why are you? Why are you not Comfort Beers? Yours such pussy. You're like I'm responsible for another human being now. Rational you do. His voice. Perfect sat beside him all year. Fucking bullshit use such pussy phrase. I wanted to ask you played for Brent early in your career while up in red deer then you play for Darryl Sutter in L. A. did plan for Brent. Prepare you for dial in any way or are they completely different? They're very similar very very similar berry. Workmanlike back you. The best thing about them is it's black or white. Here's where you stand whether you like it or not. This is our fourth check. This is our neutral zone. You're playing. You're not playing whatever it is. There's none of this While in this situation you're going to do this but in this situation you got to do that. It's like this is what we're doing and the best thing about Darryl is. He treated everyone equally..

"Grabner scorned embraced. He loss game on a breakway. He's doesn't bury a lot of break. He's about ten percent of breakaways but he gets he gets a hundred of 'em he was under review five years a year. I bet that he played two games. He might get over one hundred one game he got. Recently I played with him in New York for two years. We we were lions vehicle. J. T. Miller this guy would have three breakaways again. Yeah Right. Believable varies like one. I was talking to Raff. RAFF said he was complaining about not having a lot of goals this year or something or no he has I think he has. I think six six eight and he said he should have like eighteen or should be up there and rafts like what do you play. Oh you get four breakaways a game like why are you complaining through four year. One hundred breakaways. You only score. If he scores ten percent none of his goal and always getting a least another ten. Yeah but but I will say if he was given the gift to when he just goes in all alone like Matthews mcdavid he would have sixty fucking goal every year breath breakaways. You might be going too fast for the break like for his own skill level. I would say it's something mental but maybe maybe we can with this interview right now. We can kind of get the FUNK SWIG she touches teeing up shots. Nice Watch hockey. The only analyst watch hockey TORONTO. I wasn't down that end of the bench but he came down and he said should I do it. But you saying it's a our coach lappy. I think because I was at the other end of the bench I did this and then he came down and just ripped a clapper a rocket. It was unbelievable. Who won the last guy and I may be wrong that I saw come down and Ripa clap or like that with older stole when he used to take breakways that guy in Edmonton from squeezer? That like did circle and then came down and took a hallway. All no no that was that was linus ullmark. He didn't he would just like fake clap. Clap I don't know I remember one time I'm He was famous in Edmonton. When he did he yeah he did like the he came up and did like a spin before he touched the puck? And then yeah it was a complete clown house show dead last spin around one of these sold those Jersey engine. Tom Renney came in the room and before he talked to us. Spin around old go actually loved tr but he came around like this. We're in thirty. Th Place Right now but line is Omar. Okay Charlie did it. Did it guys with absolute candidates. Just come down like what are you GonNa do all right well being in Philly. You mentioned Qatari like 'cause you're learning things about guys you've played late against for a long time. You don't know that much about him. He's way underrated O- hundred percent like you're seeing on a daily basis. He's just one of the best two way centers I honestly think of Biz played with them right now and I'll say seriously twenty. He makes every guy he plays with. Better it's insane take me. I'm not saying the guy's he's playing with right now like needed the help because their Oscar. Tk and that lines one of the best lines on the league But like he he just plays the right way like that. Top twenty centers came out and he wasn't on it. Yeah that was crazy. I I didn't really asked about this before you have to be on the top twenty dollars and I should have no. I got asked by affiliate someone someone that works in Philly. It's about him not gonNA listen. I never like I just met him once at Media Day in Chicago and so I didn't know if I was supposed to pump his tires the new guy coming in NBA. All this guy teams unbelievable. No also the demand that we just got his morose everyone they just say talk about how sick the team. Because I don't really know the guys yet. But he asks you.

"It's even better and then you look and risk the line and there's questions you want to be out of there while he's there right now Montauk. I love bringing him over Colin. Miller has a great all you did the play call Silky so he has a fucking bomb bomb no jake McCabe. That's a defensive defenceman. You can add a little bit offense but he's a young player as well twenty four. He's getting a little bit older but you also see that he can make a big impact play in twenty minutes twenty minutes but Gordon's hurt to start the year hopefully he's able to come back and get involved but they do have assault decor much-improved you then look at like upfront and Eichel's been able to do and he continues to improve and Sam Reinhart took that step it. It was a huge season for him to make make believers out of people who maybe wondered. I don't know if this kid can be a an elite offensive player sixty five points without without missing a game you can think that he could step up even a little bit more this year and the other thing is if you look at young is because they're always in with a team like buffalo and the struggled struggled after kind of a misleading ten oh Ron right early in the year. You're going to see new players step in one of these guys. I've already seen the preseason hit two goals the other night Viktor Victor Olson the reason I'm able to talk about him because when I went over to Modo and before my enormous retirement that sent Swedish media into shockwaves I was a teammate of his. I don't know how old he was then. He must have been fucking. It must've been seventeen eighteen then this kid shot is a joke. It's like my Kaufman's whole ruin the best snapshots I've gene so he came up last year played six games four points right so he's going to get a chance to play on one of I think one of the top three lines this year he can score you'll see the questions being when you get to goal well actually the first the first challenge for Buffalo Division so good right to look at these teams. You'RE GONNA have to beat on a regular basis an leapfrog to get into the playoffs so Florida got really good. They improved Thanh while already having three of those top teams Boston Toronto Tampa so the division being so strong really hurts buffalo but they got a new coach Ralph Krueger. I love him. I had the guy in Edmonton. He got screwed over by them when he was fired Ed via skype. The story's been told a bunch of times but he believes in this team. He's a positive thinker. He's going to continue to beyond guys but in a way where they really WanNa play form warm. He's a he's. He's all about positives all about being a family. He'll talk to your straight up about anything and he'll let you know where you stand and let you know what he needs out here. There's no questions coming from players so he's GonNa make a big difference. They've had you know I think with Phil Housley. There was a lot of issues in terms of how the team played the systems while also the lineups and who he chose to use in certain points and then you know as you get older on your star superstar type player. I'm looking at Eichel. I'm looking at Darlene. The League becomes easier year by year in that. I'm saying the travel becomes easier to deal with. You know how to pace yourself. You know how to play against certain players a little bit differently. It's when you're at that top and talent the first and second overall type picks that these guys are every year is a little bit easier so Eichel is going to because I think this will be his fifth year fifth year pro or sixth year one or the other and then darlene second it'll be as V v so the League is going to come easier to these these guys and along with the division being tough. The only other thing is the goaltending so Carter Hutton's trying to prove that he is a number one goalie and Linus ullmark cy young unproven unproven guy so if he gets chances to play he's GonNa have to play well to the division being toughened. The goaltending is what you really look at it in terms of weaknesses in a sense but there's reason to believe if you're a sabers fan alright. I don't know what to say after that which just absolutely buzz. I'm excited this team different team. I'm sure you've got a few notes so I'm good what's up. You guys are snowing stab before the show you guys are fucking often run a man no free ads can London fog and also bringing in call Mila Ella kind of feels like there might be some redundancies on and we've always here Rasmusen Bristolian his name Aristophanes name pop it open trade rumors solo wouldn't be surprised if they can like that and now now you have three puck moving defenseman right so defensemen not defenseman. Excuse me you have to get them involved at all times. Get off the ice and you know you know what kind of similar type of lineup when they when they came in the League was Golden Knights is they had three pairs where they had a guy stand back and one guy getting offensive and that's why they had so much success as they were coming as a five man unit every night and I mean. I don't think they're gonNA make playoffs. I think there's a ways to go there and because they gotta figure out the goalie situation and get a little bit more depth but hey if they end up surprises and people I wouldn't be surprised Yeah Joe L. Hanson he was one of the better Bruins the whole playoff so that was a nice advil hill help like I said secondary scoring their bottom six in particular. That's going to be an issue for them. Also brought in Jimmy Visi who's in a contract contract and other interesting note they have eight pending. Ufa's on that so if you know they're out of it early manual it could be a fire sale in buffalo of end by his last guy. It didn't get mentioned that could be a huge step up type years Casey Middle Stat you saw what he did. In the world juniors you do not often see a player dominate at the world junior level the way he did with the pedigree of his draft and how high and not see them like be very very good. Nhl as he dominated the best players in the world under twenty twenty. I think this year he's nineteen. He's nineteen right now so look look for him. I mean twenty five points. Maybe the famous delighted sixty two line and said he's the worst dresser on the team because all he wears this is Lou straight up high school and risked allied in our apartment came on it wasn't rescinded it was darling I I interviewed him at the NHL Media Tour and had asked him I said was the worst wrestler on the team and he said that middle stats so little little friendly banter between the boys and he's also in the last year his ELC so he'll be looking to hopefully get paid but none of us have the savings region into the playoffs or not a step up but I already have my if my eight Eastern conference teams yeah. It's again a brutal division a lot a lot of top kids. They have to face how many more teams we got. We got two more minutes to more. I know this Zaba Oblast this week. You can hear voices next up. The Old Detroit redwings finished with seventy four points last year a couple of new faces in town Val Terry Fila Bulla Patrik Nemeth Adam earn they should goodbye to Nicholas Krahn well who did retire nothing earth shattering from the wings over the summer. I'm sure Steve You is the master plan but he can't fix things over ninety inherited a lot of this stuff I mean Dylan lock and I can't believe he's only twenty three after him Tyler Tuesay Anthony Mantha and Andre Anthony see you after that though I think they got a lot of depth issues you take a look at the roster. There are some nice pieces like I just mentioned but this is a team of twenty four million under the cap you look at it doesn't look like a seventy seven million dollar Ross dots crazy let's go for as Biswa to the wings going yeah I just I mean it starts now right rebuilt and how quickly can can either Zarman get it done. I will say that when you have a presence like Eisenman walking the halls of your organization and your building I feel like everyone does tend tend to elevate their play a little bit more just because you have an guy look over you. That's been there done that and proved himself so I think they're going to be a hard fighting team. This year. Their coaches is is an excellent coach. very well liked very very intelligent and prepared. I just they just don't they don't have anything and the crazy part about wouldn't they. They also don't have a lot of cap space and you said that already and it's not going to be pretty. I almost hope that they don't do well so they can start getting some assets in draft in in the lottery pick section because they're going to need some help of entry level contracts moving forward here in order to help turn this organization Zeeshan round. They do have some pieces to build around obviously don't Larkin. Who has he been named captain yet? I don't believe so so I mean I mean we're in crazy. Roese Times. We're in looking at a few organizations WHO ARE ICONIC TORONTO. May Police and Detroit redwings are set to name new captains. I mean that's a that's a big thing right so I would imagine he's the guy they pick and as I said earlier the time starts now for Stevie y to work his magic. They said well the DIS the issue they're getting older. Mike Green Ericsson and Trevor Daily you know they're in their mid thirties upfront. You gotTa love a couple of the guys that they've got to be able to build around. That's Larkin Sick Anthony Mantha Anthony. Co had a huge here one of the fastest players in the League in Tyler Tuesday. I love his game love. Oh God people in Detroit telling me how great he is crazy. Co Kid is probably one of the more entertaining palm trees. I just don't know if he's you know he's. He's a bit of a wildcard. He's just kind of doing this thing out there. I don't know how that translate. When does he go hot and cold last year? He was just pretty much hard. I think that the issues that they've had pry with them. We're like attitude type stuff Carlin cockiness. I've heard if you're GONNA play the way he did last year and get thirty thirty. I mean you you. You're going to be able to act a little different. thirty goals scores aren't aren't exactly buzzing around Evanger Kane out there a little bit with that swagger. Are you know I don't I don't think as tough but just saying there's a little body language so they're going to need those guys to keep continue to improve and then their first overall pick from the summer before Selena I don't want this guy needs to be nasty. I I've apparently I mean he played nine games last year three three points only thirty five points in fifty nine. Ahl Games but in junior there was there was domination domination they love when they picked him so he can make a huge step but they they pretty much need him too and then scored fifty goals in the Oh L. D. Cube official year any any lit up a Halifax but the issue being that when you're rebuilding which they are right in the midst of you need those those top AH picks to head they need that kind of turn all I was at the Arizona coyotes..

"I mean, listen they've been riding away right now in this league. There is not a lot of difference between these teams now we have power more than I've ever seen it. This league for a long time and just for example in the metropolitan division from the capitals at the one spot the devils of the eight there's eight points between them so everybody is is kind of right on top charter. And you know, and the same can be said the divisions and throughout the the Buffalo Sabres or finding a way to win those games. And that's great for them. They have a franchise player Jack Eichel who was found. Someone in Jeff Skinner that he has great chemistry with your skin has just the test. Gators always been a really talented guy. We're talking to Johnny McClain who was coaching Carolina was an assistant Carolina. And he was really impressed with Jeff scanner is just lost. You know, he just said this guy's really talented guy. And he gets to go to buffalo and play with a high end player and I call and he's got eighteen goals now in twenty four games. And I think in sixteen of those of come in the last seventeen games or something some crazy number like that. So they're getting they're getting enough scoring, you know. Golly that's come in. And he's a franchise. Pence men, but he you know, he's a rookie. But he gives them someone. Now, that's another really high end talented player. Rasmi Landon is I think it's certainly a you know, a tough re defenseman on teams in the league. So he's he joins with you know, with Ali. And they've got a couple of veterans back there. They added those veterans than the blues trade with a wily that gives them a deeper roster to begin with. They went out and got Carter Hutton who has come in and played very well, so far he's a veteran guy. That's giving them kinda the belief that they could win games, and Linus ullmark is played. Well, when he's as a young guy who they see my either die down the road. So listen, is it sustainable? No. It's not sustainable to continue to win sixteen to come back and games and win. Everyone goal game win all the shoot outs. It went all these overtime games. But the Buffalo Sabres through twenty four games. So put themselves in a great position to pay perhaps the ploughs this year. And I think they're going to be a team that they're feeling it right now. And if they can stay healthy. And if they continue to get decent goaltending. They're going to be a team. It's just gonna be a. Competitive team and hard to play like, you know, like a lot of teams in this league. Like, I said, I mean, there's just not a lot of different even the bottom one little change or something all of a sudden, they could be I'm not I'm not trying to pour cold water on it. A matter of fact, I joke around with Michael Rapaport who's our stat guy with the Rangers. And he sends out notes before every game. You know, who he is? You see him at the garden and one of the I joke around with him because he always gives a stat. Like when the Rangers. I haven't looked at today's yet. But just for sake of argument, you know, it'll be Rangers and senators, you know, fourteen of the last twenty meetings of a decided by one goal. I mean, you could say that about every matchup as the Rangers. Every game is decided by one goal or two goals because of an empty net. I mean, very seldom no matter how bad a team that you're covering is that you're sitting there with the game already being decided going into the third period that that's how the sport is. But you're right. The positive of it is they in nine straight games against some pretty pretty good. Opponents that they they've been the one to figure out a way to get that last goal. And that's that says something about a team they went in. They went into Winnipeg in Minnesota on back to back night. That's right. That's that's the win those games. And in Minnesota the second of the back to back they were down to nothing and rallying went. Absolutely. So you know, that to me was an eye opener because that is a hard double these days to go on and play those two teams. Yeah. And I gotta give a lot of credit. So we'll see how it goes..
"linus ullmark" Discussed on Hockey Today
"And by that, I mean, like we'll the owners kind of worry about owning and not worry about other things. We'll the manager, you know. Is he going to stay focused on the job at hand? You know is, is the coach going to, you know, in in how Phil Housley? It's still, how's it going to be a better coach this year. I never thought he did not have a lot of coaching experience, even the coach in a couple of places, but not really a head coach for any length anywhere, you know. So can he learn better from the stakes last year, Jack geiko? Can he be healthy but you know, certainly with when you have an Eichel and you have a Rosman Darlene, you have to you to pieces. I mean, we use a Stanley Cup champions over the years to have a number one center number one, and most of the time almost in every case Donnie. When you go through the history of this league, you have enough on center number one defense minister elite players, and they have two guys potentially. That can be really elite players in this league. So there will be interesting to watch. We'll see how car Hutton does it net. It looks like Linus ullmark to somebody they liked behind him. They're probably grooming him to come in behind Hutton. We'll see if the rest of the defense can kind of stay in place and he'd better this. Year, but they'll be an interesting team to watch for sure. And of course the so the only change you would have playoff wise, Florida replaces New Jersey. So we could have pretty much the same playoffs as we did last year. So the question is who's more apt to really take a run at Washington and Tampa throw them in the mix as well. And when there was when there was conversation that they were gonna get Carlson, I I started thinking about when Golden State got Durant in the NBA. I mean, you're talking about almost a super team here. So I, I still look at Tampa as the even the Washington won the Stanley Cup EJ am I still crazy to kind of look at Tampa's the team to beat in the east. I don't think you're crazy. I think a lot of teams look at the Tampa Bay. A lot of people look into the Tampa Bay Lightning really impressive. Why wouldn't you be? I mean, they've got those. They've got the pieces in place. I mean, they've they've got a really a bunch of really high end forwards up front led by Naqui to kucherov. I'll be very curious to see where Steven stamkos is at the season. He had a good regular season, but it really fell off in the playoffs. And I think he was dinged up. I was being that being at a devils lightning game late in the season, not in the playoffs, but late in the regular season, and I was sitting right behind the bench. So I had really a good idea that was going on, and he came back to the bench a couple of times and he was just really, you could see struggling and it showed in his play. And so I'll be curious to see what he does this year. That's an important piece. Obviously the Tampa Bay Lightning but hasn't been leaves the way on defense mcdonagh's their first full season fully integrated, circuit, Chevy, getting better Basle. That's great and goal. I'd still like to think they'd have. They could get a better number two. I'm not a big Louie Demane fan of the guy that would want you wanna plan thirty thirty games if need be or or. Vassilis he gets hurt, but I think that's an area of I..
