Bruins Free Agency Reaction & Analysis | Poke the Bear w/ Conor Ryan

"And welcome in to poke the bear episode 254, the Adam McQuaid episode. One of the most lovable likeable toughest Bruins there was number 54, Adam McQuaid. That is today's episode, I'm Aronofsky along to ride a Boston Sports channel, Connor how we doing? Evans very tired, but I'm doing well. Did anything happen on Wednesday? We're there were, there were a lot of moves mean. I don't remember anything happening on. Wednesday, me NHL World Cup? No, I don't think so. No, I just didn't sleep. Well, no, just tough night of insomnia. Yeah, yeah. No. I actually watched I watched signs. Then I came on my way. Frighten me though. Is that I'll play a little bit but, you know, persevere day-to-day putting into that stuff that stuff not much happened. This is not. What are we talking about? We're going to spend 30 minutes talking about nothing. Seems to be like a mushroom on movies. Yeah, yeah. Episode. That anyways, there's quite a bit to talk about free agency was Wednesday and boy. Well, I mean, it didn't disappoint. The sense that, it was very entertaining around the league. I mean, Philipp grubauer being taken by the Kraken. That was very out of left field. Dougie Hamilton go to the devil's. There were no big moves by the birth. When's accepted net, which will get to. But I had to write out a chart of all the additions and subtractions and question marks Bruins. Add just to go over things for people who maybe aren't caught up and we can kind of see where one the Bruins the day before on Tuesday signed re-signed Mike Riley three years three million then they started off free agency by signing Derek forbort two or three years three million left. Defenseman. They signed Eric Holla 2.375 million per year. That's two years correct? Years almost two years Tomas nosek, two years 1.75 million per Nick foligno, two years, 3.8 million / and then Linus earliness. Oh Mark or Uranus. Yeah, Lena. So Mark 4 years, 5 million and that's the net subtractions you they lost Sean kuraly to the Columbus Blue Jackets he gets to go home. Best of luck to him probably Nick Ritchie I know Kevin Paul Dupont had said that he was coming back but then I believe it was Larry Brooks reported that that Nick was looking at him. Yeah, you look to be someone that the Bruins were definitely going to keep and then didn't and then lost it damaged our as well. Best of luck to him out in Calgary for third round pick. And then the two big question marks, David krejci and Tuukka Rask, and the Bruins, currently, after yesterday, have a lot about 1.8 million in cap space. According to cap-friendly, which on days, like yesterday cap-friendly is as real and MVP. Is there as the goat? Yes, absolutely. As good as it gets. So there's a lot to take from this. We will try to break it all down here and I think a lot of people are having trouble making sense of all of this. You know, the Bruins added a bunch of players, a lot of depth pieces, a basically a starting goalie people are cut this. A lot of question marks here and I think we'll start with this cuz I know we both agree on this. There's two scenarios. There's two lenses to look at yesterday. And there's if krejci returns and there's if krejci doesn't return. And in one scenario, it's really good. And in one scenario, it's really worth the air. Yeah, no absolutely. I mean it's tough to like do a full grade or gauge this offseason right now just because there's so many, you know pieces up in the air, right? You look at its kind of like you watching like a Christopher Nolan movie and like halfway through it just gets cut. And personally what do you think of it? I fuk it off in the second-half. I don't know what the gauge it on. That's like, kind of how yours if you would right now because if you're going in, you know, if David krejci returns and they have to move cap or assigns a, you know, a value deal. Granted. I don't think a value deal is like one point five million. Like I think they have to move a cap anyway, right? But if he signs for Three and half four million. If they they able to get him do that and easier to see. Then you you're looking pretty good. You know. Have they moved the needle. Enough that people are getting the duck boats. Already know, they have a lot of stuff work in your favor. I think they've improved in areas. They needed needed to especially in that bottom six where falino and, and Halle know sick and all those guys will contribute. But if David krejci is not there in the middle one, I'm curious as to why you, you know, spend the money to keep Taylor Hall because I don't like Taylor Hall signed here with the expectation of having a center by committee, kind of be the guy that's driving offense on his line. Um, so yeah, it all depends I think on whether or not crazy comes back because if he's back and the pieces fall where they may, and that bottom 6, and you've got a folino and coil, and holla, and objective process in that mix too. I imagine if they have to clear out cap. Be the first one to go. Which here, see what the return would be on. That would be a straight cap dump or if it's you package, same with other players to move, you know, like a John more contract or what have you try to get home, you know, cap flexibility, plus an impact player, back Arizona's very nice in the winter. Yes. Yeah, there's plenty of options that they can. They can go with in terms of Freedom capping and not moving some contracts out, you know, it's not like they're locked in right now, nor I think people have to be aware that the Bruins I think can go 10% over the salary cap limit during the off-season, so they could sign great to you right now. It's like a $4,000 deal. It's not like the, the NHL's cap Auditors are going to come in, like, just like fight. Don Sweeney right now, you know what to do until the regular season stats. So they have some some wiggle room from their home, like someone gets kidnapped, they walk in with like a thing. They put over to brush his head like pull out John. Yeah. Like so you look at this, this, how how they wage, Handle this offseason and is it, you know, the movies people are expecting now? I think, especially I think you look at that defense might be a big question mark in terms of whether it's the right Personnel, you know, with with where is Lincoln, Riley's potential, you know, top four guys is Derek forbort The Equalizer that you need, cuz I think we've talked to multiple times about. They need at least like, you know, two guys out there and need to get back, guys, granted the market for defense and seemed pretty brutal. I mean, you already didn't have a Lexia cuz off the market Maya, Tina stayed in in Vegas. You look at Ryan Suter who he's getting paid a bullet of money from Minnesota, is still chasing money in term at his age, which that's Alexia Brian. Whatever credit waiting Kudos. Yeah, yeah. Yeah. You can't see much, do you feel the brunet's? So it's a bit of a tough situation in that regard. You don't know if even a guy like at home is going to get moved, considering natural traded Ryan else already. So you have to make do with what you have. So their birth Even so they were before but still some question marks there. So again have they improved? I think so there's a lot of again, moving Parts. If crazy is back, you know, if he's back in the full by this time next week and they've moved, you know, the broad score or what-have-you for a cap relief and or maybe a player. Then I think the complexion changes that this is Steven with, you know the situation and that address areas they needed to address. But if we're going into camp and it's we're doing a story of who is going to be Charlie Coyle or is it going to be adjusted Nika to see? Then you're in trouble or Nick foligno like, you know, Nick foligno, it's easier to see not great for team in a win-now window, right? However, if he's a third life and, you know, Winger who's able to, you know, provide offense and that's part of life. You didn't get much from last year pretty good. So it all again hinges on what, what creates she ends up, doing, I look dead. Today in three segments, obviously of offense defense and in that duh. But I think on defense, it's the most cookie-cutter. They improved. But it's not enough, right? You have the same table for you had last year, which you need to it needs to be better off, you added for Bert to most likely that third pairing, which I think for Bert was an overpay, but you needed that six foot four, two twenty can kill penalties play stuff minutes, I think you'll be better than he was in Winnipeg else. You needed him, you needed a guy like that. You got him. Kudos. You improved in that regard. I would say for was probably better than lausanne so you improved but you need to improve more on D. So top for, I don't know what they're going to do. Forgot that those guys are off the market, they really were never quite on the market for top four left shot defense. I mean, just as you said oleksiak Martinez and Suitor all three were going to be very tough to to lock down. So that's going to have to come via trade offensive, though. You mentioned it, you know, Sweeney mentioned on Wednesday you know Center by committee if she doesn't return. That's scary. That's scary game. I think it's interesting. He wants Frederick down the middle so you would assume Fredrick would probably start off as maybe the fourth-line center. I think yesterday, as much as it speaks to needing an injection of off of proven depth, right? Like that's kind of why the Bruins had postseason struggles, the past few years has, you know, when it comes to these big moments, when the Top Line isn't producing, or even the second life, the third and fourth lines need to come up big and, and last year in the postseason, or this past season, it definitely didn't happen year before it didn't happen against the blues. Had a tough time happening. It kind of speaks a live up to their, maybe not. So confident, in said Mica because against the Nico was kind of touted, as you know, last year, he started out on the, on the, the top six. I know it was a Winger, but he's always would kind of like, oh, he's, you know, the future top-six, centerman and yesterday get Halo. Who's a center really know who can play center? You have coil, you have Frederick, you know, maybe even create she wears Tanika in this mix. I know obviously don't really talk off. Pakistani Kia hasn't really made an impact on the roster yet, but we were told for so long that this was a big chip. This guy was going to be, you know, top six center. I don't know where he fits in any of this and I'm just curious, you know, and I know you feel the same way with if she's gone, where two people saw it. I mean I would assume coils II Center a second line Center. So then is your third line said Mica, is it Halo? I mean, you're paying holla orpheline a potentially be that I'm just like, it's mind-blowing with this lineup could look like next season. Ya know, again, there's so many pieces that haven't been something. That's not even looking at dabros grade of. Like, even if God, you know, crazy she doesn't return these guys as move up like is he still a guy that the Bruins want to roll with next year? If he's you know, your third line you know left-wing I think he's still do for a bounce-back season but you know is it better value moving him for an asset or you know getting some money back. I didn't quit. He's back. I think he's most likely gone, I don't know. Yep. Do you have a trade of lass up there? Unless you're also, if you're lumping, you know, Sydney in that mix and making, you know, a bigger package to acquire a guy than maybe that changes the complexion of things but wage sneaky. Yeah. In terms of maybe some of these other younger players, I think it's it's tough to map out a set ideology, right? Because if they, you would think up in his win now, window, where they've also have signed a folino, a, how, you know, these veteran guys that it's like, all right, we saw happen with the youth movement. Last year, we went with zavora land and life goes on and said Mica didn't work and it did not gel at all with our window Window Seat. Imagine this year, it'd be the same thing of or be the opposite of we're not doing a youth movement. Know if a guy like Frederick's Dixie sticks, but we're not going into the year entering training camp with, you know, Sydney at the top of the depth chart in a key spot in the lineup. So that would seem to mesh with dead. What these signings were. But also what happens if she's not here like cream cheese, the ultimate determinant and just how legit they can go. In terms of trying to go for with this Veterinary Group now, because life is not fair and sneak has your 3 C or he's in a key spot like that and the key part of the lineup, right? Like you're not spending, you know, these couple of million of dollars on that third line. I have a rookie that you don't know can fit that role be The Driver there, right? So, so yeah, it's, it's again, it's tough to kind of map out a set game plan. I think we generally know what the the the the course that they charted out was and that they're trying to go for it and they're trying to round up the depth at trying to have, you know, versatility and adding these guys to the mix. But Mom, if she's not, there is kind of bad that that key cog you needed the second line, then it all kind of falls apart, right? Like you're missing like a key Foundation that you'll even the whole rest of the lineup construction on stable. Because Can coil bump up there to see. I mean he can he's a center but it's see what you want right now and especially in this one now window even if he's dead he bounces back and his you know the knee injury he had and the surgery had back to 100% And he's a coil that we saw you know in 20 2018 nineteen thousand for twenty twenty, that'd be great but if you still a to see right like if what's Charles Eco out his best you know forty-five points probably right. It's a very good 3 C but if that's your option there for A guy in the middle that's going to drive and get the most out of a second line that you need to produce with Taylor Hall and Craig Smith. It's got scary. And again you also is Jackson has a to see what a risk. They're not again until hobby that thrilled about it, right? So it's it doesn't whatever option you look at if she's not back, it doesn't match with the the layout and the plan I have for going for this year so it all is going to depend on David krejci. And again who knows maybe they have a deal, you know, they're working on and then just you know, trying to move up cap first cuz I'd imagine they would rather move the cap space right now. Just because let's say they signed krejci to 4 million dollar deal and they're over the cap. Right now you lose some leverage in terms of moving Galaxy Edge because teams know that you need to free up the cap space so it could be waiting. Just to move those movies before signing a guy like krejci but That's what you hope is a scenario. Cuz if it's not, and they're literally just on on hold, you know, as like David krejci's, like chilling in the Czech Republic, or down in South Carolina, that's not good. You would think to be something that would handle right away and if he's not back, then the I will look at this season and kind of this window gets dour very quickly. I think you're screwed afraid. She doesn't return. Cuz again, I, I don't know where to put it, but very, very blunt but effective. Yes, I think you're screwed. I do, I don't know. I mean, coil is your best bet is to see if he's gone, but it's not really proven. There's a lot of question marks when it's G kept safe to say, it's not a safe bet if he doesn't return, but what is a safe bet what to say? Every time is that online? Absolutely Heaven.

I saw this happening on Wednesday. I was supposed to go to the Sox game Tuesday night, but it got postponed to the next day for 2:00. And I debated on not going cuz like, what was going to be a lot of moves happening. But then I was like, well, my seats are really good and I paid it on for the boss. It's a beautiful day. I'm going, I don't care, and I went with a friend and all the way. Yes, and I'm sitting the whole game updating Twitter, all this stuff. And then as I'm driving home as all, Mark is getting signed and stuff off to see, I can't look at my phone and drive as everyone should know. My friend was sitting there reading everything. All the, you know, what people were saying, what the deal was, you know what, everything like that and I'm sitting there just dying to home. Say something about it or see things for myself. But took a safe route, safe route. So we hit on defense a little bit and I think four again for Bert. Feels the need for bills and need a little bit over paid off. Still need to get that top-four defenseman, but I think maybe the most interesting thing that happened yesterday, was, it feels like, feels like this. Team has moved on from Rask in a sense. All Mark for four years times, five, five million per that's not back up, money. That's not, you know, a temporary answer. That is a long-term solution in. I think a lot of this left, a lot of people, kind of like, what moving on from Rask is one thing, but when you have swim in there, so swimming is obviously in the fold. He needs obviously more time, we all agree. That's what he needs. Time to prove himself and to kind of get ready for consistent, NHL action. But what did you make in the line of soul? Mark deal. What were your initial reactions to that? Yeah, probably a little bit surprised at what the heck, you know, the term of the pay. I was I think when it got announced, it took a while for the the term and the actual details to come out. So great news. Then the Buffalo News say that Buffalo offered him like five times 25 Mi, Ya Dead. Correct. Yeah, but I think it was, you know, Friedman I want to save the first one who like had like just the straight you know. Oh, mocked the Boston. So first reaction is like not bad, they're claiming, you know, they're either, you know, gearing up for a legitimate guy to be kind of that stopgap. Or, you know, they're, you know, thinking maybe rats is going to be a longer-term or if he's back at all. So, you said, all right, you pair him with swimming. That's a very good insurance, you know, policy. Cuz as we said multiple times, you don't want to have a hot, a hot situation on your hands and I'm working that really struggles in an extended role, then the turn comes out and it's four years, five million. You're like this isn't even like, you know, start or money of like a guy in a short-term like this is a guy you're committing to at that that kind of contracts in terms of, you know, if it works out I think you look at the grand scheme of things and just how these things are mapped out. I really don't have that much of a problem with it because I think at the very least, it covers all the bases of a situation in that where you've got, it's like a choose-your-own-adventure book and like there's about four hundred different ways that I can go. Hey, why if you pick the wrong hallway, to take, what have you like whether it be, you know, swimming invalid are struggling if Ladera was here and they went with them, them struggling an extended role, they didn't have much of a backup scenario, a spot where young, you know, to Grass either is still injured or he decides to retire. And all sudden, you're, you're screwed, you know, going into the postseason. All these kind of different scenarios that you run through, haven't gotten all my fellow who isn't just like, you know, a journeyman. They didn't sign like a, a Craig Anderson or what-have-you. I was just like a body to be there. That has played an NHL game as insurance. They've got a guy in Omar, cool. You kind of look at his numbers. It kind of reminds me a lot about the Bruins kind of I think thinking when they sign the RO halak in 2018 because people forget as good as halak was, you know, especially in that first year in Boston with his number is the year before with the Islanders were not that great. I think you have a 9:06 a percentage and again you kind of looked at his numbers and the underlying stats. They look pretty good. It's the problem that you had, you know, the pre Trot Islanders defense in front of him which was pretty dogshit object. So you look at oh Mark last year and for him to put up a 9:17 a.m. a percentage with the Sabres with that defense. When Rasmus ristolainen is like your number one option back there, like holy shit. So I think you look at the opportunity, the Bruins had one, you've got a guy in all my accou, I mean, who knows, man? Like even if swimming is, you know, struggles a bit. Or even if he solid, you've got another guy you pair with him and oh, my accou. Could have his value really maximize in this role when he's got a competent defense in front of him and a solid structure that Bruce Cassidy has you know this could be a guy that could take another big step for this team and if you sign him to a deal like this, where he's still only twenty seven five million against the cap but if he's a guy that all of a sudden his has like a nine, You Know, Jack or save percentage, you know, in in the season looks pretty good and that case you either can decide on Rascal later and maybe he comes back healthy for the playoff run and you've got a good time with those two together and you get spend more time down in Providence or two situation where maybe all markets women are lights out and you don't have to even revisit the rest situation if whether it's, you know, finding the cap space or just the situation of juggling, those guys and net. So I think initial reaction I'm fine with it cuz I think. Oh, mark one has a lot more to give and to it. Pretty much covers any situation. Can you have right where whether it's a rookie struggling Rass not coming back, rest. If he does show up, it's one of those good problems that have, right? It's not like it's like the Bruins would be driving over. Especially, I think you looked at home last year ended where you pretty much were, you know, were nervous to go with Jeremy swimming in that role. That depleted defense in front of you. You had an injured Rask, you know, sweetie kind of more or less mentioned that they could very well go into the postings now, with the legit tandem, if it's oh, Mark, and a healthy Rask and postseason. A lot of teams would love to have that happen. Well, it seems would love that situation and swimming, who at that point is he could be on a roll or he could, you know, be taking the the struggles that are expected from a young goalie in that spot. So I think however you look at it, I think the Bruins still did a good job of Identifying guy that not only is just a solid nhler, but a guy that I think has a lot more room to grow in a higher ceiling than maybe people don't realize considering the numbers he put up in Buffalo. Also. I think the other thing they do some people are critics of this deal. And again, the money does seem high. But I think the critics are saying, you know, oh my God, even even if Rask doesn't return, you know, his own Mark going to be starting over slave. And so I'm going to be a backup for four years. I think the answer is no. They platooned Raskin halak. No issue. When Ross was making seven million dollars a year, they had no problem doing that. Why would they have a problem for shooting? All Mark at 5 million? Who said it was a goal. He was had some injury history and you, you know, you platoon with swimming and and we'll mark, there's no real starter, there's no real backup. It's a one, a one be kind of scenario whoever takes the one a or one b as completely, you know, hard to guess. At this point, just swing was on such a roll last year, all marks also very, very good. So, I think it's fine. Like, I think, and, and that home It does feel though, like probably wouldn't return, unless there's an issue unless one of them slumps or gets injured or whatever it is. It feels like Rask is done but I will say this month. So we mentioned yesterday, he talked to Raskin drafts kind of gave the okay for all mark This probably won't happen. But you know, in my my thought of thoughts, the conspiracy theory part of your brain, you know, the part of your brain. That's always there. It's kind of like maybe this could happen almost wondering if they're going to use the time that Rask is on the Shelf. The kind of let's swim in grow into his own as they would like to you know, play really, really well. And then when Rask is ready to come back in january-february, you have all markets why I haven't gotten. It was just around that time, the trade deadline trade deadlines right around that time. Grass comes back, they signed Rask to, I don't know what, whatever deal they've signed him to page him with all Mark, and then you got swimming and he's playing really well, and you're going to throw them down in Providence. You really going to do that all marks under contract for three more years. Who knows what Rascals under. You should always sign a regular, back-up. You wonder if they might trade swimmin because at this point at this point swimming is their number one young Prospect. There's, he's completely surpassed Anika on the, on the page on the on the depth chart in terms of the prospect pool, he's their number one guy. If you could trade swim in for a lot of things right now, and if he plays really well, this upcoming year, you could trade him for even more dead. And I wonder if, I wonder if they would ever consider doing that, whether it be for a jack, eichel, when is no movement class kicks in, or for a top-four, she left shots, been because that feels like, it's going to be tough to maybe trade for right now. I'm just kind of curious if that would ever be something they do. Cuz that's a big move, that's a big move. But this part of me that's like that's kind of interesting. Yeah. I mean again it's probably further down on the list of how they I think ideally they like to keep swimming. But again I think signing Olma gives you that option though that you probably didn't have before where it was either, you know, swimming over the dollar or you sign a journeyman like that was not going to be part of the plan. If you're coming into a guy like, oh Mark you can either fax it opens up a whole new level of options you have where you can either roll with him further foreseeable future as your number one, you have him as you know, an insurance for swimming and see kind of develops and builds his foundation as The Avengers Will franchise you go with it. You hope he becomes it. Opens the door to have him. Be, you know, a Galaxy phone to be potentially use as a trade chip. If again, as you said, as he looks like a phone, number one goalie, I probably would move them. But if you're thinking, you know, you need that last push to get over the cop. And you got a top-six guy or a legit number one defenseman on the market or what happened, maybe that changes, and that wouldn't be an option. If you didn't have a guy called Mark in that who's hopefully at that point playing very well. So I think when you look at it, like most authors moves and like most of this offseason for the Bruins as a whole about five hundred different moving Parts with it, that it's tough to like build like a consensus, like, one sentence like summing up how like their goaltender situation or the decor, the bottom sixes. But I think when you look at it, considering how You know, tough, it was to gauge what to even expect from that goaltending cord going into this year as of 24 hours ago, you at least have some stability there and you have options wage. I think considering how, you know, potentially destabilizing it could be two in a win-now window, lose your franchise. Goalie for if not mostly or maybe, maybe he he's done the fact that you now have a guy like, oh, Mark and net to be, you know. With a Galax women. You at least have some stability there which you know, I think you go into the season change. I think the number one concern is still krejci and then probably the defense the fact that I think goaltending from me is still third on the list of you know concerns or what you don't really know that much about life is a testament to the fact that they lease have an option back there that they can kind of rely on hopefully in all marks. So again, tough to gauge right now, what it's gonna look like by training camp but You're still in a better spot than I think. A lot of people thought they were going to be as soon as the news dropped back in June that rats, we've going to be out four, five, six months me going from wrath halak to month marks, women feels like an upgrade because again, you're saving money against the cap as well. You're not paying as much last year. They were paying what? Ten million dollars in debt. At the current moment, it's what five million plus women making is sewing under a million. He's over a million. Not right. I I'm trying to think we'll how it kicks in once they're so even then if it's not make a lot of money though. Yeah, so if it's 6, when you're saving four million and you have two younger age, is Annette Swain, you know, very high up side. So to me in some ways that's an upgrade. So again, I know there's a lot of people who are saying, you know, Wednesday was a complete failure, it was awful. There's a lot of people saying it was great. I think it's it's, it's tough. The dust has yet to settle. But on first glance, I do think that at least defensively, they, they upgraded a little bit should have upgraded morgue. And that they upgraded now offensively. That's still very murky. It's hard to again with the crazy stuff as we've discussed very hard to kind of pin that down and it does feel like the brush will get traded maybe even get strong even if she doesn't get to come back because there's still a lot of pieces in that bottom 6 and I think they still would like some cap space. So, I'm curious if that happens. I wonder what his values like, I, I do wonder what his value would be, if you can. You get a second round pick for him? Could you get a third, you know, can you get a legit NHL player in return? I don't know off. Again, if it's a cap dump, I don't know how your, you know, maybe debrusk and more for a pick. I don't know. The market is so geared, I have no idea and I mean, you should also look at it too. They could be holding on in terms of entertaining offers until after most of these top-six Winger, Zaroff the mac and free agency. Because if you are a team that missed out on a guy that you would change, Getting, you know, a guy that's capable of scoring 20 goals, maybe you then you know, Circle back and look at a guy like the breast who I'm sure there's plenty of teams that even if maybe, you know, depressed valuation. It's not the greatest can look at him and be like, all right, he's twenty-four he almost 30 goals in a season. He was on Pace for over 20 goals, had covid-19 it and twenty and twenty twenty. You know, he's a guy that if we put him in our situation, change of scenery could be a top-six guy in our lineup. You know, there's value there so that could be waiting for that kind of the free agency dust to settle and then you know, entertain offers once again. So I think this value there which would be another reason why we thought he's more or less just a pure, you know, cap dump. But in terms of, you know, priorities though it's all about free up. Cap a great you back because again not beat a dead horse but if she's not back the whole outlook at the season, takes a major hit. Yeah. That's not good. So that's yep. Everything in the Bruins world. I think we kind of hit on everything. You know, could buy Corelli. Hello Thomas. No II, Lino sex, going to be a fourth-liner. Holla Felina are going to be third liners. Said we do know that we do know that around the League what stood out to you? What was the surprise? What what what piques your curiosity? What was would you like wage? Which was it out like, yeah, I think probably it's more. What I didn't like it was like, how many teams were throwing out? Crazy contracts. It's crazy. How you look at last offseason how hesitant teams were to to spend money especially in the flat? Cabinet were very cognizant about that. Didn't look like this year. I mean, people thrown out crazy money too and again, like I understand you paying up for Hamilton or or what have you, but even, you know, Coleman to a six-year contract which brings in on him, but that was the one bullet dodged that will give him credit. That was, I'm glad that didn't happen. I would have been that would have been like reminiscent of the Dead. Casteel. But you look at just, you know, like sooner for four year deal that time and gets. I think seven year contract. Cody get four years. Yeah. The Kraken who didn't make any deals or any expansion draft and you know, signed Chris driedger like gets grubauer now. Like, it seems like people are were spending a lot more freely than I thought they would be sitting. We're still in this flat cap era and there's no guarantee yet that it's going to be increased next year. I think, in the coming years, it's inevitable of the cab Rises. Once again, once you've got a m s p n and Turner deal kicking in once you got Seattle, doing. Well, once we go back to the pre pandemic, you know, level of Revenue, but not a guarantee. It's going to be my next offseason. So the fact that so many teams are spending at the same level, kind of surprising. And I don't think there's any real like winners. Like, it wasn't a team that I think you look at how they handled the first day for you to seem like seems set themselves up for a run Club app. Colorado, getting camper. But even then like that cost to get him, was pretty heavy, right? Yeah. It did not go according to, I think their plan of what they were hoping was going to happen when they had to do this kind of panic trade for a guy named about a guy like camper so. Well, LeBron was saying that their plan a was obviously re-signing grubauer. They're playing be, was signing Freddie Anderson planned. See was trading for campers so they were up against the wall. Yeah, so you know, I I look at it, you know, the teams that are still good is still going to be there, you know, like Colorado even if they had to do a little bit of panic move to get a goaltending. Still have a lot of The Usual Suspects back there. They're still going to be good and they locked up in the car, you know they got landeskog they all those guys Tampa even, you know, people think Tampa even though they lost their entire third line, it's going to be good to be very good choice of either about even without their top-six. And they also re-signed Breaking Point who is a monster like yeah, they're they're still, they would still be a legit Contender even if they didn't have that Top Dog. Cuz vasilevsky and then defense is still as good as it is right there. Still going to be a very, very good team. So honestly, the team that I think came out of this whole offseason right now. Looking pretty good. Is dead zone of being cognizant of the fact that they suck and they have a lot of work to do. So they took on all these Shady contracts and I think they've got seven picks in the first two rounds next year like they do, in fact that's that's an actual good rebuilding effort from from Armstrong coming in and fixing what was a mess. So that's one team that are they going to be good? He'll know. But in terms of actually ripping the Band-Aid off and really retooling and rebuilding and what should be too, pretty promising drafts, they did pretty well for themselves. Especially considering they got dipshit Vancouver, to take the OEM contract, which and together and to get the 9th overnight drop. Exactly. Yeah, so sucks. The Bruins didn't get gallons. I think he would have been fantastic, you know addiction. But Not worth it for that y'all contract that Jim Benning trying to over in Vancouver. Trying to say, you know, change of scene. He's going to fix what has been replacement? Level of production from O E, L for that contract. Isn't something like that Vancouver. Team is so screwed, man. Like there's been there was a lot of we're not even talking about Carolina, how they have, not just the Tony DeAngelo shed but they're, you know, deciding to be exposed the cheap owners that they are with getting really developed of it. And, you know, going with, uh, you know, a team that people are so high on. Now, they're kind of scraping the bottom of the barrel and trying to save money. Chicago giving Seth Jones at horrible contract and trying to now build a contender like, in the middle of what should be a rebuild? They should, they should have blown it up years ago. The fact that they're now like tried to blow out of one you'd be like oh this sucks. Let's let's just spend a ton of money again. There's yeah there's a lot of teams that off. What do you think? Maybe Bruins fans are disappointed that the off season? Maybe it hasn't been as lofty as they expected good. God, there's a lot of teams that had some shity weeks, a couple. Oh, and I mean I just I mean I look at the Blackhawks. Look at that Seth Jones deal. There's obviously that, but I mean, just trying to run it back. It's like, what are you doing? Like just rebuild. I used to, I didn't understand that. You know, what are you doing? I mean caves on the verge of retiring. So you just have Patrick Kane, you're building a healthy male, Patrick Kane, I don't get it, I don't get it. And then yeah, the Tony D's scenario the situation and Caroline that makes no sense from a real life standpoint from a cheap owner's perspective, you basically trade Dougies nine million a year for Tony D and his one thousand a year hoping that you get like half the production. I guess I can see it from that angle, but that's a terrible terrible person and not someone you want your locker room or representing your organization wage. They kept trying to yesterday or Wednesday, trying to justify. He's become a better person and, you know, he's changed. Of course, there's no examples of that and everyone kind of just looks that laughs, but the real reason is, is they want to save money. They want to save the 8 million on a right shot puck-moving defenseman. That's the reason they looked at they looked at a status from two years ago. So I have 53 points and said, well, we can do, we can do that and save, that's the reason that's the real reason. It doesn't care that, you know, racist or or any of those things. It's just, you know, you say it's money. That's it. That's the reason they're a hockey team at the end of the day people forget but that yeah, that's kind of free agency might continue. I just got a notification that Brandon Saad is going to Saint Louis and Corey Perry is going to the lightning. So cancel you to join. The Marian Hossa experience home next that that basically locks in that the Canadians are going to say on the company. Yes. Anyways, before we go, what can the people look forward to over bsj? Yeah, obviously, a whole bunch of news to break down. The last couple of days, I'm sure we'll be more news to drop in the coming days where I think there's still a lot more shoes to drop in terms of the Bruins, audience will have all the updates, breakdowns, all that good stuff over at TJ's of subscribed to Boston Sports channel, cam going to follow me on Twitter. You can do that at, Ryan underscore 93, go do all of that for CLS media. I'm Aronofsky. That's kind of Ryan, you poked, the brake boosters, have a great rest of your day.

Flyers fire Hextall

"The. That game misconduct podcast with Don. League-record and welcome to the Monday edition of games conduct. Diam? Download Greco we had long hiatus because of thanksgiving, and we come back to some big news involving the Philadelphia Flyers. And who better to discuss that and everything else NHL on a Monday is EJ Radic fermenting. Joel now Monday through Friday on the NHL network four to six PM eastern time. How're you do? I heard you under the weather. So I'm glad you're feeling better. Yep. Just that's that time of year. You just got to try to. Grin and bear it. I guess that's the best thing you can do. And nobody's gonna feel bad for him. Because you know what? Next day could be you. So don't feel too bad because he seems to save some sympathy for yourself. It could easily be me off and on I'm often on death's door Mollison. But then you then you rally your known to rally rally, which is very alternative alternative. Yeah. That or death and believe me, we'll all scrape up enough strength try to avoid that whenever we can. Yeah. Well death in firing. Those are the two things that nobody wants to have happened to them in Ron extol is out in Philly, creative differences for lack of a better phrase. You're reading a statement, they just didn't seem to philosophically believe in the same thing's going forward with the organization. Do you know what those philosophies were? Well, no, I don't. But I would I would speculate on a couple of things I think that, you know, the flyers are underachieving so far this year, you know, their their goal differential is a minus thirteen which is in great. They're they're not been very good at home. They're five six one at hall. Call those losses have been ugly. I was there for their home opener against San Jose. When they got blown out in that game. And it wasn't the only time that they had been blown out on home ice. And they just had an embarrassing loss in buffalo that an embarrassing loss in Toronto. They did actually have a win against the Rangers on black Friday and played well in that game could have been a lot more one sided if it hadn't been for Henry. Plan. So well, so I mean, there's underachievement of there's probably some consternation within the flyers management structure about the future of their head coach, Dave axed, all we've seen a lot of we've seen several coaches moved out ready this year. So there's probably something that we're going to Asian somewhere along the line that probably feel like maybe they need a coaching change or something different day or so that could be something. Also, the new I think during Ronnie's tenure there. He's been very of. He's been very patient, and he's tried to develop as young players, and that's very commendable. And you know, I think there were probably some that are saying, okay. You know what we have goalie injuries? Let's get Carter heart from the minors, regardless of has been just played very average there. And let's elevate them to the National Hockey League level. And I think Ronnie's probably quite back against that. He's fought back. It's the coaching change. But the one thing I would say about, you know, Ron Hextall tenure which has been I would be critical for sure is that if you were gonna look to have a stop gap goaltending group between the time you draft in heart. And when you feel he's going to be ready, and really it's gonna be a while. You had to do better than Brian Elliott, and Calvin Pickard and Michael noisier. There's been a number of goals that have been available over the last couple of years. They signed Ryan Elliott after Brian Elliott, basically was a key element in the Calgary. Flames being eliminated in the playoffs in that particular year. Michael waiver hasn't been able to stay healthy for more than a couple of weeks at a time Calvin Pickard they picked up off waivers. You know, it just seems like they haven't been able to find any stability goal during his tenure. And I think that is another thing that I would say the other stuff we could argue. I don't think we could argue about that. I think that there have been other goals that have been available that would have been better than what they've come up with. And so that and that really to me is one of their biggest problems. There's just no confidence in the Philadelphia. And it makes sense to me everything that you say and the patients we've talked about it here on the show on how they weren't gonna rush heart up. They weren't gonna rush some of their younger players up for a run last year. Even though they worry. To make the playoffs or cosmetically to to soothe any problems this year that there was patients usually it's the general manager. That's chea-. It's the organization that's preaching patients. It seems like it might have been the other way around maybe the organizations Chiba, Iran. Xbox had the philosophy of I want to be patient it usually works the other way around right? I mean, he he was I guess thinking he had all the time in the world and time ran out. Yeah. And you know, the other thing too is that in Philadelphia now, you know, done it when we were growing up tonight or on the flyers. And like when the old man was happy things were good. And when the old ban wasn't happy things got changed, and that's the way work, and and now with Mr. Snider passed away a couple of years ago, and it's kind of a corporate group. You know, the Comcast group that owns the flyers. I'm not exactly sure we'd making the decision, you know there. It's a it's more of a corporate structure. I know Paul homeland is he's the guy that eventually his name gets on the, you know, the release, but you know, how much input comes from. The corporate management structure above him. You know, and how much they have to say in this. So the bottom line is for the flyers. They've got to play better. They've got to figure out their goaltending situation. They've got a combination of some some veteran players that have been playing very very well. And some young players, you know, that they feel can be really good players. So the window for that all gnashing, you know closure. Ruse best years. Jacob four checks best years, even James van ravens cycle. They recently signed as a free agent and was injured for a good part of the season. I mean will they jive with when you know, I've improved RAF is at his best. Then maybe Carter heart becomes the goalie down the road. I don't know still. I mean, that's the window. Can you get all those things at the same window? I'm not sure, but they and the one other thing too is they don't really and it's not a fighting league anymore. We know that there's there's not those types of players, but in Philadelphia, I think they do like to have their team nasty and hard to play against and the flyers have had to fight. At the team this year to fighting majors and they've only come in the last couple of games. And again, not that you're gonna turn your team into the seventy five broad street bullies. But you know, there might be a sense in Philly. Like, hey, we have you know, that's where we are. We have to be a little bit harder to play against and we aren't right now. So there's a lot of things I think the problem what do it? I'll be very curious to see what happens. I didn't think they've axles days along there without Ron Hextall. And there is there is a place in Philly that could go out and could afford to make a deal with Joel when Ville the bringing him good point as well. That's a very good point on. They have the money to do it. Now, it's interesting because you're going to let go of both of them today if you wanted to so we'll see if it's just a reprieve until they can get something worked out with Joel or whether he thinks or the organization believes that hack stall will will be given a couple of weeks to maybe prove that he deserves to stay. But if they had a problem with say Hextall, not firing hack stall that I would think both of. I'm would have gone today. So we'll see if he could take the opportunity. Yeah. It's a little strange. I agree with you. I think it's odd because I think there has been some push especially because we've seen in the last several weeks as I mentioned, the Oilers made to change the things may change the hawks may changed teams. But making changes the blues meta change. It seems like that's the move that comes first. And if nothing else comes in tandem, but in this case suppliers have made this decision. So I guess we'll just have to wait and see how it plays out over the next several them that should be interesting. All right from the negative to the positive Buffalo Sabres on an amazing run nine game winning streak. But if you dig a little deeper EJ eight of the nine games decided by one goal five of the nine games in shootout or overtime. So is this team that's coming together? And is a legitimate force in the National Hockey League. Or is this a team that you know has been quite fortunate during this nine game run. 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. But I mean, heck I'm really happy for him because that's a die hard fan base up there. We know the sports history of that franchise. But hey, things are great in buffalo right now. The bills have won a couple on a row or say here we're role in. I mean. Hey, everybody's out on Chippewa while having a good time right now, you know, when you talk about what a sport needs and very seldom does a sports say we need the buffalo market. But the NHL does. I mean, if you take a look at the Stanley Cup final ratings. It's always a last year. You know, it's it's Vegas going up against Washington. So we are Washington. Be number one Vegas will be number two buffalo be three of Buffalo's always heard sometimes second depending on what the Stanley Cup. Final matchup is they love hockey, they hunger for it to the longtime since they've had a run that two thousand and six six cups should have been. There is no offense to Peter lobby letting the hurricanes, but the the sabers were so the net conference final I think they would be ten in the Stanley Cup. So that was that should have been there championship. They still think about the whole goal against Dallas ninety nine. Now. I'm not talking about Cup for this team. But if they can start moving in that direction, they'll be excited you mentioned Winnipeg is one of the teams that buffalo beat during this. Streak. I mean Patrick line. Aiming this is this is sick. Now what he's been able to accomplish Ellison. It's kind of a wacky stat. But still I player in NHL history to record a hat trick in three different countries in the same season. That's pretty good. I like that. It's three three hat tricks before the twenty third game. Which is something you alluded to on Twitter bossy did four times, but still different era of hockey. But. Listen, we had a conversation back when they when him and Matthews were rookies of and who should be the call to trophy winner. And you said you always leaned towards the center as opposed to a winger. But I say for a winger, I mean, this kids just a flat out star. And as just been a joy to watch while listen he could score. I mean, there's no question. He's Alex Ovechkin two point. Oh, I guess right. If there is such a thing, he's very similar that he's a big physical guy. Got a great relief. He scores with similar areas Lovie, and you know, the funny thing is this guy started off season. And he was a little bit in the slalom people are wondering what's up usually under the goals score? Either power play goals around the net goals. And then all of a sudden he just goes off the winter Finland and he got hot over there or he just brought back with them. And I mean, it's just the dynamic goals score. And I think he's going to be a dynamic goal score for long as he plays in this league and got nineteen now. And boy, I mean he's rolling. So he's got a supporting cast around him. You watch Blake Wheeler thread, those passes through to him in that left circle. And they got some nice camera crew one another. So no surprise like Patrick line is scoring goals. I guess the only surprises when he goes through any kind of stretch where he doesn't because he's just who's to dynamical for any update on the Lander. No, not for me. I mean, it's so I mean, we we know what the calendar says, right? I mean, we're we're sitting here and several more days Saturday. I believe is December first. You'll have to have something done by then, you know, I think it could go. Anyway, maybe we'll say well, he's going to sign or he's going to be traded something's going to happen. And I'm like, well, I mean, if chroniclers don't get a great offer for them, and they can't sign them. I mean, I don't think it's out of the role of possibility for for just shut shut down and for for knee land. Or maybe they end up playing Sweden this year. So I I'm not saying that's gonna happen. I think we're likely that he's either gonna sign or get traded. But I only get rule it out. Because if you're the leaps. I'm not giving me of kneeland or away. You know, I'm getting something significant return if I'm trading I think if I had to if I had to wager on it. And of course, I'm in the state of New Jersey. So I could sure thing existed. I would probably say that he'll get something done, and he'll say, but you know, when it will probably be something short term because I think that's the rub it all this is that, you know, newsletters, letters the first of the three guys to really be dealt with for a contract knee lender. Martyr and Matthews, and I think that there was some concern. In the new Andrew group that you know, they signed for less than you know, Margaret gets X amount. More Matthews gets X amount. More than that. I think they see their player and Louis grosses the Asia there, you know, of course, Williams dad, Michael played in the league, they see their player, as you know, in a similar place within the structure is maybe not at the top. But you know, you know, we get into these discussions about money. I mean, it's always it's always an interesting dynamic. So I think time we'll we'll play out over the next three or four or five days. Like, I said, I if I had to wager. I'd say he's gonna stay, but I wouldn't rule anything out and that would include the idea of him just not signing and not being traded here. And there's other players that are going through this next year. I yeah. Oh, yeah. I think we're, you know, I think peel the Brenneman done a piece on it about the idea that some of these younger players that have played so well, you know, we might be looking at some of this. And you know, some of these teams. Have a number of, you know, tough contracts, and I think that's you know, we haven't even seen that yet only when you think about some of the contracts that were signed. I mean, there's three four or five years left on these deals, and you know, I don't think we've seen the extent of the damage that they can do when a franchise I think we're seeing a little bit of that play out in LA with some of the problems they've had, but you know, they have a lot of success you win Stanley Cup. She signed players belong contracts, and then those players don't perform at that level anymore, and you're kind of on the hook for those contracts. So, you know, the case that guys like me land guys coming out of entry level. I think if if they're your guys that you feel like your core. Gosh view, they have produced. I think you almost you're almost of the situation where you have to pay for future production as opposed how it used to be where you pay for what a guy has done and tried a kind of a level of of production. Because if you wait you end up signing those guys much later in there, you know, at twenty six twenty seven. Now. Now, you're doing an year veal, and you're you're not getting the best eight years of their careers. You're getting you know, maybe three good years, then try to okay years, maybe three years where he meant to think about buying the guy out. So in in the in the case of the Matthews, who's obviously he's gonna get his money, and you know, Barner or and the end or I think you'd like to try to sign those guys for the eight years if you can just because you're getting their best probably their best years of their career. But the problem is in Toronto's case they've got to MIR assigned to a big deal. And they've got the, you know, three really high in young. It's just hard to hard to do the mass as yeah, it's hard to it's hard to do the stuff in a vacuum. Now for sure yeah. Yeah. Rick carpenter L. Of course, you know, him from the athletic. You should follow him on Twitter. He's a great follow for anybody out there looking for some hockey knowledge. I don't know if you saw this tweet from a couple of days ago, maybe yesterday says that the NHL quarter Mark nine of the top fifteen point scores are. Twenty three or younger, including each of the top four rotten file mcdavid McKinnon martyr. Overall, this blows me away forty six point four percent of players to appear in at least one game this season or twenty five or younger. I mean, that's what this league is about. And so these guys gonna wanna get paid. You know what I mean they're carrying teams right now. Yeah. And I think you here's another guy that's going to be interesting grading point in tamp down. I mean, he's probably been their best players. Certainly there amongst most productive players with future off. And what are you gonna pay? Brayden point of his Tampa Bay Lightning and some point down the road of you know, you have rent and then McKinnon, and Colorado, and then, you know, you pay McKinnon you're going to have to pay rent and at some point. So until you see how it's played out there with dry file mcdavid. Those guys are on big big contracts. And that team is really, you know, it's all good when the team is winning. But the team is losing then it's you know, it's more. It's more problematic. Obviously. But it's it's it's amazing. This league is gone young. It's it's a fast league now. And if you can't keep up, you know, you're you're in trouble. And that's the way I look at team like Saint Louis who, you know? Here's the staff where he died at this time last year the blues leading the league in points. They were a top the National Hockey League standings as we discuss we talked today. Your later are thirtieth out of thirty one teams. And I think Saint Louis has their hesitation to embrace the young talented players in their group and push them forward in their lineup has been part of their problem. Yeah. So you know, literally is absolutely about youth. That's absolutely that speed right now. And if you don't have those things in your line of going for you, you're probably looking up, but a lot of things. All right. Let's do a few tweets before. I let you go cool. Okay. All right. Sam has says gentlemen, hope you both had a wonderful. Thanks. Giving day with your loved ones looking at the Western Conference standings. I'm surprised to see Calgary is I in the Pacific Division, is that sustainable do. You think San Jose Vegas or Anaheim will rise to the top? I like San Jose's team still, but they've been so inconsistent. I mean that a nice little run. But really at the end of the day when you're looking at there. Yeah. They're twelve eighty four which means a twelve and twelve right, right? And they both board games and overtime. So they've been very up and down Calgary fourteen nine and one. I think the key for Calgary is going to be the gold sending now David Riddick has come in. And then great, and he'd be my guy. I would continue to roll with David Riddick. Now, they had the back to back. I believe Smith played in the game last night. But I haven't had a chance to double check that. But the bottom line is that. If Mike Smith is not going to respond, David miniature your is your goal, and he's played very very well. He's at nine thirty save percentage. Screw twelve games. You have to have goaltending this leak the Calgary Flames. They've got terrific young players there. Chuck drill Monaghan Lynn home. I mean, the defense which you're down on Brody. And and those guys. It just going to be about the goaltending is the goaltending going to be good enough. And there were two week division. So dateable. Absolutely. It's the stable for Colorado and have a good roster. They just need to get good. Goaltending Riddick continues to do that for them. They'll be fine. Yeah. Smith twenty five saves in the six to one victory for hours on last night. Haywood w says, do you see the Rangers picking up another play via trade to add a veteran presence with the kids? I don't think that's really where they're at. No. I agree. I think that they're like just talked about they have embraced the idea of playing the young players and to a certain degree. It's been pretty successful so far now they've won four shootouts. Therefore, no, knowing the shootout, we talked about that with buffalo. Right. So I mean, that's a plus they've found ways to win those games you take those points away. Just take those four points away and the Rangers now moved from fourth in the metro to near the bottom right there with Philly. So. For me. I think that the, you know, the Rangers are gotta kinda go maybe week to week from a managerial standpoint, they're going to watch their kids. They have in Hartford. They're going to watch the kids they have playing in all over the globe. Whether it be in Europe or in the in the junior leagues and North America. They're gonna keep intending to watch and see how they feel about Kevin Hayes going forward. And what offers may come for Kevin Hayes. I think if you get a good offer for Kevin Hayes. I think you move if you don't get a good offer for Kevin Hayes, then you'd probably sign them. And and you move forward. But you know, I think in the case of of zuccarello. I don't know if there's gonna be a big market for for zuccarello'll. If there is a deal Jimmy made. I think it's the same thing. I think the Rangers are looking at continuing to get younger fast better. So that's the way I would do. Now, you see the numbers game for me is all right? Let's say you traded now, they don't have an appetite to trade picks. That's why you sent the letter out last year. Right. And we're not even a year removed from that. So unless you're going to do a Spooner for Strom, which they did which is let's see if I can take a chance on a player that hasn't really clicked the two places. He's been any veteran you bring in. Gonna take somebody's job. Right. So you don't want them to take one of the kids jobs, and then you defeating your own purpose? Right. I mean, the idea is to let the kids play if I'm going to go out and get a center that's going to play on the fourth line and make Leah's Anderson sit than than what am I doing? He'd like. So I'm gonna bring in a veteran to help the kids the kids got to play. So what veteran of my benching? Exactly. I mean, I think I look at it this way, if as a one of those this is what I say when I say, they go, you know, manageable. Look how to week to week if we get into February and the Rangers go on a great run. And they and they are just playing really, well, then I would think that the Rangers would look at it and say, okay, there's someone out there that we could add to this group that can help us even better. We we just come together beyond our wildest dream. Right. But I don't think that's going to happen. I think that they're going to bounce around back where they are. You know in one day out the next 'cause they have goals. We've got a pretty good group. And the guys have really responded to David Quinn has done an excellent job. So I think again like people have Kevin Hayes. Kevin Hayes has been a good player for them. You watch the Rangers on a pretty much game to game basis. So you would have probably have more of a p than than I would. But by feeling this. If you something Kevin Hayes to like a six year deal, and he doesn't perform it that higher level. You know, now, you're stuck with his contract. So I think for me if somebody came in, and we'll give you a really good prospect and high pick for Kevin Hayes. I'm probably making that field because I think that the raiders future is. Is the younger guys they and their group the guys that aren't even there yet. You know? That's what that's what's going to be the thing that gets the Rangers to the next level. So I think that's where the Rangers will be with Kevin Hayes. I think that they like him. He's played. Well, they wanted to continue to play. Well, and you know, what if the offers there to do something they'll I think they'll do it. And if the offers and there, then they'll resigning him, I agree with you. Let's close it out with Tom wish to say happy thanksgiving. Same to him. Could you see the NHL coming up with a compensation formula similar to the NFL for free agents? For example, the Pinera inside a big deal with someone else next July. Columbus gets draft pick thoughts. Well, I mean. I guess something. Like that is you know, you then you have to determine okay, it's like a special pick. So what number picked you don't think it's fair to the teams that you know, in drafting before they have to slide back one to accommodate a team that couldn't sign a free agent. They knew going into it. What was happening? Yeah. There are cases where teams get those you know can compensatory draft picks. They get added to the draft, you know? But I I would say that the, you know, I'm not I don't think it's something that's an urgent thing for me for the NHL because you know, the covers you have time to make it to dry, and if they choose not to make a decision, why should they get anything for it? You know? So I mean, that's just the way it works. And I don't I don't have a big problem with the way the system works. Now. I think it's incumbent on the on management group. So the individual seems to make decisions that are best going to impact their chances stuff success. All squeeze one more Jake says, what division do you think has been? Best. So far, the Atlantic of the central. That's a good question. Because you don't want the Atlantic. I was like the dog division last year. It was so bad. And I thought it was going to be pretty easy to handicap again this year, and it's been much better. I mean, you know, Florida's been the surprise just with not playing well now, they have another injury rebuttal Lago. So they might be kissing the playoffs. Goodbye. I thought they'd be a team that could get into the team, but they've got a pretty bad injury. And you know, losing tro check. And now they lose Longo again. And I don't think longer with James rivalries, really the answer. So Ottawa has been entertaining. Although there you just go for ton of goals, and they're rebuilding Detroit. One thing out there defensive back. I mean, they've been a much different team in the last month. And they were the first month Montreal has been very competitive. They put Carl also on waivers today. That's one for you. I mean, they just signed last summer or two summers ago. And he's got a. Five year deal at four point six to five million. So I guess they're going to be eating that money in the minors. I don't think anybody's gonna pick him up off waivers bosses had a lot of injuries buffalo. We talked about camping Toronto or elite teams. I I would probably have a whole central probably the bend the better division. You know, Saint Louis bottomed out Chicago hasn't been as good, but they're really strong when you think of Nashville Minnesota, Colorado wind up back at the top and Dallas is they're pretty good. So maybe marginally they've been they've been the better division but land asthma surprised this year because some of the team even though they may not be winning as much there have been much more competitive. Yeah. There's no question. EJ? Thank you so much with us. All the information. We'll talk to you next week. All right. You got it done. Always budgets are. That's the great EJ Radic joins us every Monday when he can. And when I can fit him in my busy schedule to have you want more EJ and h L network NHL now Monday through Friday between the hours of four and six PM eastern time. Let's take a look at the slate of games tonight. There are five of them at seven. O'clock. The Bruins will be in Toronto to take on the police. Always a fun rivalry Toronto with their six nothing victory back on Saturday. And Bo Boston, of course with their nice win. They blew it to nothing lead in the third period against Montreal. But eventually did win the game. They're banged up on the blue line for sure but trying to revive at thirteen six and four all the leaves have been great at sixteen eight and oh devils continue their Florida swing? They'll be in sunrise to take on the Panthers. You're EJ talking about again. Roberto Longo is heard devils now back under anti Joel five hundred after getting blitzkrieg in Tampa last night capitals and the islanders from the from Brooklyn from Barclay center at twelve eight and two islanders squad coming off a win over Carolina while the capitals taking care of the Rangers on Saturday. Speaking of the Rangers, he'll be hockey fights cancer night Madison Square Garden, as they will take on the Ottawa Senators and at seven thirty tonight, it'll be the blue jackets and the Red Wings from Detroit as things really heating up right now in the metropolitan division. So close the metro right now Washington back where they probably feel they belong all along the Stanley Cup champions twenty nine points Columbus with twenty eight points in the twenty six are the top teams in Rangers. Now two game losing streak by themselves on the outside looking in. But it's still so close because the islanders and the Rangers are actually tied in points with twenty six with the Rangers played two more games. So the Rangers with their home and home against Ottawa tonight at Madison Square Garden Thursday up and Ottawa chance for maybe the Rangers. At least they have to feel like they're the better team and could win those two games to get back on track before they go to Montreal coming up on Saturday. But you know, what the Rangers thought they were the better team a couple of years ago in the playoffs. They got beaten six games. So that's why I gotta pay close attention to these games. It's always fun back with again tomorrow recap the games, and we'll go over would be a full slate of games coming up on Tuesday. Thanks again to EJ Radic. We'll talk again tomorrow.

Definitely we would probably be doing it regardless of whether or not we are to listeners or not. but it's still nice. It's nice to see at the hard work. Pays off my hard work. I mean just reading off one headline out of our dock because we have a very vague script as always. Yeah yeah yeah. Yeah so I guess we could just jump right in hockey. Considering there's so much to to go off right yeah. Do you want to do our hardcore song. I oh see. I'm out of practice now. I know i. I think i almost missed the opportunity last week because i was just like. Oh yeah damian. Can't be here hockey. Just kidding hardcore. So yeah i got This song feel my steel spend endgame. I just released on a split yesterday that they did with a hold on. Hold on hold on with living in fear and game. I think i've had like very early on in the podcast. There from calgary i think. Hey calgary hardcore fucked the flames but and game is pretty fire So yeah it's just a bunch of fu malloy fucking still is pretty good. A lot of good guitars underneath. I got a classic as you're oh yeah just added the two of these songs to our playlist on spotify so make sure you check out. The lincoln are bio. You'll see linked to the playlist or you could just search tci hardcore playlist on spotify. And you'll find it. But i just added year of the knife baby abandoned. A lot of our friends have been quite a fond of xiao tyler. Kyle We love this man. Just i know you do as well. I went with saw. Why not k-. It's basically the name of the band and just very screaming very yeli. Tk literally yelling. You know it's good intro to the band you get used to their name funding kicks ass man and there are always a fun time. They always play with like jesus vs and bans sick live. Yeah i've seen him like three or four times. they're awesome. Yeah and you guys. Can you know what's funny is. I don't think we've ever really shouted out like if you guys like any of these songs and you kinda wanna see what they look like. And what do you look like. You can look them up online. Like why not k. Like hey five. Six eight five six. He's really great. You know creator in the space where he just records like a bunch of different shows and you could see you know how these shows looking what we what we really mean when we say that their shows are insane. Because if you see a lousy k. show even on recording yes. You're gonna think it's phenomenally nuts. Yeah hey five. Six definitely can expand your like hardcore taste. Oh yeah it's the six effect. Yeah exactly So yeah he's awesome. It's hate the number five and then the the word six on youtube he's awesome so go check him out. We're also in a few videos. I'm in a bunch a couple. Actually i think so it's Yeah so maybe if you guys know we look like now since we have pictures on the account and maybe you guys can look for us so yeah yellow like you said before. Let's get into hockey The first thing you have here is cb wi with the red wings I know you wanna discuss that. There's something i want to discuss about it as well that i held off for this episode. Dude yeah i mean i'm not a detroit red wing fan but stevie why himself Mr wasserman he's making me n with his moves. He's been is a phenomenal off season. So far insane. I punch the table by accident. But he's he's doing a great job. I mean i made a deal with my islanders which i know you kind of covered. A couple of things nicoletti on his way there and sure is he aging. Is it a rough contract. Yeah maybe maybe But they're able to acquire some things you know and not trade and neglect can also help. Fill out their power play. you know. He can help quarterback that power play is the best on it maybe not but nicoletti great. Pick up for them. I think any kind of fills a whole so. Listen i i think i think that nicoletti was a solid pickup for him. Second was signing this. Michael rasmussen do. Maybe i'm a little behind. And i really didn't know much about him. Which is clearly the case. Nhl franchise mode legend. Yes six foot. Six two hundred thirty pound vancouver native. A dude is insane. I mean so. He's kind of slow start but he's only twenty two years old playing in the nhl on honestly let's be real a struggling detroit team so most of his goals are off the power play though because yeah i again didn't know much about him so i wanted to watch as many as i can. I watch a couple of highlights and a couple like you know. Draft prospect talks about him. You know they're little old but do it. He just sits in front of the net. Almost like anders li like that. I know it sounds like Just going back to the islanders but just to give some type of a similar to him he just parks his ass right in front of the net and he's getting deflections in and he's he's a good solid obviously six foot six two hundred thirty pound man so nobody's moving so insincere two in forty games not to not to push for twenty two year old ninth overall pick so if he if he develops the way that he should do. It's going to be lights out in this league and just a solid resigning for him. I think that it was a great job now. I think that this is what you wanna talk. This is what i wanna talk. So i'll let you take the reins on this one. So i'm going to flip it. Because i think that you have something else about them. So last thing. I'll say and then 'cause i wanna flip after what i wanna talk so forty million cap space right now so they have a lot of work that they can do They have made a couple signings. I believe Since we last for writing this They son and this time jordan. Asir lee from the coyotes. Pious souder From the blackhawks. So these are good deals And they just resigned. As if like an hour ago. Tyler tuesday tyler On a solid deal realistically two years. Four points sometime five. Yeah so it's a good deal. I'm hype for them. Hopefully they can be somewhat competitive in the in the atlantic division. Right there in the. I don't know. I was thinking back to like twenty fourteen when they were in the central but yes so hopefully they can make some noise and disrupt the tough atlantic division. But i mean. I don't have high hopes for them but okay back to what i what i want to go story line here. And i have no beef with steve y for this one about the allison adele chevik trade. I have no be with seaview. Cv about this like how. How did carolina give out alisyn del. Jv they dropped the ball. How in god's name. I mean. Listen i should have been more prepared and pulled up his stats for this. But i believe it was a nine hundred. Save percentage as like a twenty two year old a twenty five year old. Excuse me so yeah. He had nine thirty two. Save percentage in twenty three games had fifteen wins on the carolina hurricanes over his twenty nine game career nine twenty eight save percentage twenty five and they gave him up and for a third of the hurricanes gave him up for a third and jonathan burning. This is a guy they drafted in the second round by the way your nave wasted now. Th- what three years on developing him. Three or four years lyle. So you know he's right ready to become nhl. Mainstay and last season proved that and now this season was going to be just another great year for him. Hopefully and carolina certainly dropped the ball. I mean the rumor was that they were losing an arbitration. You're gonna have to pay a little more than they would have liked to but make the accommodations. This is your this is your goaltender. This is your this is going to be your long staying goaltender. This is a a nine. Thirty percentage goaltender that. You're that you're living walk for. Let's call it a bag of pox. I'm kidding. I mean they're getting jonathan bernier in the third. But you know gotta you. Don't let him walk man. You don't let him walk and for the fact that he signed for two years for three million dollars. I think he wanted a little bit more with carolina. I don't know why he settle for less here. But jesus christ three point five million you can spend that on a on a fucking nine thirty gold. Bu- goaltender well. that's my apparently. I was reading that. There was rumors that they didn't believe in him. I'm sorry but what do do not believe in him. And you have four years to fuck in even more than that. 'cause he's twenty five even more than that. Yeah i wasn't even thinking i for some reason. I thought he was a lot younger but he also looks like my cousin. Who's twenty-three that's probably why oriented twenty to But yeah it just doesn't make sense to me which is what i want to transition into carolina. Because what the fuck they doing. Yeah. let's go. i know. I know we're skipping very far down here in the thing but They signed tony dangelo. Which i briefly went over in the episode on tuesday. But it just doesn't make sense to me. It doesn't make sense to me why you would bring him into the locker room. So they also traded for ethan bear the hurricanes trade but they also lost jake bean so i guess considered a wash whatever so ethan bear who is indigenous. Tony overtaxing texting back and forth. And ethan was like. Oh yeah there's there's like no be or whatever and he's like everyone deserves a second chance bro. This guy has had like seven chances. You know what. I mean between. Oh l. for the racist and homophobic thinks that the pires between two instances of abusive official between Getting kicked off arizona tampa like like. This guy has had a million chances. Improves time and time again. That he's just a piece of shit. Yeah i mean. I i just want is inexcusable. And for the fact that he was fighting a teammate at the nhl level at this point because carolina man. I you know that this was a team that we were highly. Touting i love talking about and this is just a blunder. This is This this shitty off you. Are you feeling that that. Tony de angelo is going to go to a organization again It's just disappointing that it was that it was carolina. I i mean. I as stupid as that sounds because i feel like it would be disappointing. No matter what team that signed him. But i i would like to think that they were gonna be the last team i thought you know. Here's my thing donald l. the gm. What kind of drugs. You're on right now but you made me so embarrassed that i had a layover in charlotte. That's what you're making me embarrassed. I'm embarrassed i was in your state. Yeah i'm embarrassed. Because how do you how like i mean. They was such a good team last year. It's just it's so it's so stupid. And they just signed then. Freddie anderson so like a two year four point eight million. You didn't wanna pay pay more for ready anderson. Who is washed up injured all the time. Are you kidding me It's a stupid move there and carolina for some reason like dude. I just don't get it. What are you doing. What are you trying to accomplish what you're not getting better. Which makes gm's like stevie wise men more appreciable. I think he's absolutely insane for what he's been doing like he's doing a great job because he teams like this where they're blowing up their team from the inside out for why for what like i to me. It just doesn't make any sense at all. it's just doesn't make sense i just. They lost ski. He loss were in fogel. That you know it's like they've lost. Jake bean is like nidal chevik. I mean it's just for me. I just don't understand i just i don't get it. Yeah no it's definitely mind boggling as what this team is doing right now I wonder what they're going to look like next season. I was scared of him. You know what else is my modeling. And i mean and i went. Oh i went over on the episode on tuesday is But i figured like you should chime in to want like say like real quick. Like about logan who and the montreal canadians. Yeah we should. I speaking of assholes. I i was listening to the episode. I felt like i wasn't making it. So evident that. Like i condemn what he did. Like i mean. I know i was like oh yeah you should have done it whatever but then i may i think i said somewhere. It was like i get it. He made a mistake. And i didn't mean that like oh what he did was a mistake. Like i'm an in terms like looking at it from a team perspective. Like if i'm mark birgitta and i'm looking at him then i'm like oh just made mistake. I don't think he just made a mistake. I think he's an asshole inside that. Yeah and i wanna make that evident like you know regardless of his age regardless of whatever is being boys whatever that doesn't matter what he did is still fucked up this this woman. I feel terrible for. And i wanted to make that evident that you know like i wasn't excusing by saying hours. Just a k. Boys will be boys. I wasn't framing it. And that's how. I view it. I was doing it how. Nhl teams might view it. What the point i was trying to make is that hockey culture should be changing and like these teams shouldn't be having this view on these players such as lemay mayo tony dangelo and of jake fucking pretend gets into the league. I'm going to bug out gets back in. I don't get how now like ever since we since we last spoke like more women apparently have filed for like civil cases against him. All named. it's up to like six or seven women like so it's like there is cancelled. Coulter and hockey. I'll keep saying it because it doesn't make sense. I mean the the fact that might bourbon are bourbon. Whatever the fuck having no clue how to say his name Dude i it's to a point in a situation where What is he the prime minister's whether called not probably yes sir prime minister trudeau. He's literally saying he's disappointed that he ever supported canadians. Like he's like he's down by this team's decision Even the owner has something to say about it then. They came out with a whole press. Release about all. The steps are going to take to try and help reform. Which if you have to come out with the press release for that. Shouldn't that just be worrying enough to not take him. I was listening to a podcast. I forgot forgot who was forget. Who but it's like again. They weren't excusing it either. They were saying how it's like if it seemed really wanna draft him you know like talk to him and be like y'all what are you going to do the next year like reform yourself. You know and see if he does like change. I don't know how you measure that. But then it's like then maybe take a flyer on him. But even then i'm just still like i don't know it's like you can't measure as you just mentioned like like like he he could. He could put on a brave face and say until he's blue in the face that oh yeah i changed. I'll never do any of these things but it's like this is what he was saying. He was like young. I learned a lot from this experience. When you get whatever you want to get your goal you get your dream of being in the nhl a month after exactly are thing goes down and you know what i brought it up the other day. And that's what pisses me off. He said how you won't see let experience be utilized to help other young men there's there's no quote unquote make mistakes. But how are you showing that there's consequences when you still trapped in the context. I fucking round cancel culture. Is it real. So if i see anymore. Instagram common saying oh hockey's turning soft casual culture. There's no fucking thing such thing in hockey as that because of assholes like this get into the league and getting what they want with no repercussions. That's what i'd say about that. I don't know. I know. I should bring that conversation surface. Not stop talking about it. I hope that case swept over the blackhawks now like Did you see. I forgot who was beneath mentioned. This really quick. Yeah whatever his name. I feel bad saying that. But whatever his name is Shit there's a blackhawk player from the two thousand ten mile. Yes yes you sent me this in. Dm's right yeah. I want to bring up his back to five. Okay founded Nick boynton odd that you know. They asked me who knew and i gave them names. Basically everybody on the team new. I said everybody fucking knew about it. I said you can talk to the coaches. I said talk to torch who their former assistant. I called out. Brian campbell and said talk to patrick sharp and talk to patrick kane. The training staff knew everybody fucking new and this echoes. Because how do you not know about that. And then apparently people talking about how like the victims is getting harassed. And it's like why the hell did a the so. Many people know and estander after ten years. That's insane to me like it's it's it's sickening. Hockey coaches fucked. It's sickening it's like it's it's how can you watch a fire and walk away from it. How can you watch somebody being attacked and walk away from me. How can you watch. Somebody be sexually assaulted know about it and just look the other way like there's so many people involved at this point and maybe like oh it's above me. It's above me. Somebody else should take. Somebody has to take care of it or if somebody but like somebody has to stand up somebody has to say like yo enough's enough and for it to be under wraps for ten years no like i mean. The patrick sharp know that he he went and played on. He went and coached an under twelve team under eighteen team. I don't know. I don't know maybe he did. Maybe he did it. But somebody in that organization if everybody fucking knew somebody in that organization had to have known that he was teaching an under eighteen team like doesn't that doesn't that spark a little bit of like a accountability new to say like red flag. Like hello. this guy was just doing this with with full on adults and was able to do that in a major league organization and keep it under wraps Now he's going to a small town with eight hundred eighteen year. Old kids doing this. Yeah exactly like there's no like there's no accountability in anybody in this organization. And it's a it's really disheartening. And you know not to keep harping on a burgh robert but he was an artist should be harped on but like like there's other people involved as trying to say boy he him him in particular and then for him to give now this logan kid of fucking break like come on come on lately like you give speaks for how long men like you've been given how many breaks like no no. It's it's disgusting. It's sick it's it's it it shouldn't happen and it does. That's a sickening part. And i think. I think another person is getting swept under the rug about this is kevin shoveled off from the wind patriots. The gm how he was also on the team at that point how he knew. And nobody's talking about him. Why isn't the nhl saying anything. Like where's gary bettman. Where we're going to do all the we're going to do all these things all these things for seattle. We're going to be like. Oh yeah we're doing. We're doing awesome. You're gonna say all these things about i. It's original six franchises. They're not gonna do anything about it. That's why people need to keep talking about it. Every episode talk about it every like post every development. That happens share. You have to keep talking about it. I and now it's like i. I don't want to blame reporters. But it's like do your job like hugh had these press conference with these guys. Do your job say something to them. I haven't heard anything. Have you know like do your job to ask the hard questions at get. These people to be responsible. Get them to answer like i. It's just like it's so much is happening but nothing is happening at the same time. It's like it's like this is all made up for. The fans suggest believe is happening but the nhl at all or no. I don't know what you're talking about like what's on it was. I'm really hoping that there's an article at somebody's really working on and that there Oh really big. You know. Kind of like the arizona coyotes warning. I really hope that there's an article coming out soon. Distributed name details names everything. I really hope there is. Yeah and then at that point if nothing said from the nhl something seriously change also really quick. Because i didn't see. I know i actually about it. It's like apparently blackhawks. Brought out. Because i was watching the draft but apparently they brought like eight women to like make the pick with us the blackhawks. And it's like come on. How you are you gonna make like how are you gonna make a spectacle out of it like get a fucking grip and the she should have the. We'll go very quick. It's really hard for me to even mentioned this after the conversation that we just add because i feel like this is also a big issue in its own right but like after. This conversation is kind of hard to say. But the cleveland indians did just change your name to the cleveland guardians which then sparked the conversation about the nhl and the blackhawks again. Should they change their name. And i don't know we. We always know that the nhl is always extremely late to situation We know that they're very late to the party. They're very late to follow suit just to save face And again there's other issues that are plaguing this this organization. There's other things. I need to be fixed too But again you know maybe maybe the name change is a conversation that could spark again because of the guardian change and also got to think to the indian dinner. Change your name The redskins change their name to the football team So it's like how many teams are going change their name and then the nhl still have crickets and not like neither. Say we're sticking with it for these reasons bub-bubba whatever whatever whatever or we're gonna change nick notes crickets cricket it's We don't know what's going on. We're not a real. So i don't know again. I feel stupid bringing that up. I know you shouldn't in conversation have you. But i just don't have anything odd. Yeah you hit the nail head there. Yeah yeah so far. The blocks canadians Anyway well i got really heated. I started well. The ac's broken this studio bedroom. The ac upstairs is broken so We're we're working sweat. I don't wanna put the fan on because you know we have to suffer. You guys suffer that way. You can hear us clear. You know what. I think. I wanna get more heated All right as it's less it's a much less heavier topic but so vegas. Oh yeah man. I was waiting for this conversation The the the vegas hater. So they traded. Marc andre fleury for a minor league player and they didn't let marc andre fleury know about it Which is fucked up. Honestly he found out through twitter which apparently is a thing they're like. Oh yeah you know we want to let them know like when the trade actually goes through when the trae calls approved which like i get to an extent like insiders are going to be breaking it. You know so it's like this is gonna break it regardless so it doesn't make sense to me. I'm going to be in talk with my clients or my my like employees. You know I mean you see there. There's been like in football. And i think in hockey to third day do like these like behind scenes. I think they did like a behind the be for the bruins hawk. God i hate those things. I hate it when we come upon network. Do a fucking ca towards is going to be the but like there's been situations where there's trades and you see the general manager see ownership sitting down talking with the player being like. Hey listen like you know. We're going to be moving you here like we're really sorry that happening but like being a world class organization about it and letting them know. Hey by the way you're gonna change your moving to fuck in You know where do you go to chicago. You're going to the blackhawks like he finds out through twitter. Like i get it like you know. They exposing very fast. Especially frank serve ellie. Franks value absolutely insane which we talked about that Thing let me put that under here so you know whatever Continuous sorry you know. Of course he's psychos are going to get it out quicker than anybody else but like apparently ryan reeves who just got created which i know that's another thing and i don't wanna get too far ahead of myself but what i want to say is he. He was involved in the conversations. Where straight yeah. This bottom line plug. Who has six goals in three hundred nine. Six hundred games plays eight minutes. Only is known for fighting and destroying people's lives is involved in the conversation for his trade but mark furry avenged. Don't right anyone of just one. The vessel top three goals hunter of all time damian. Do you know why ryan reasons notified. Tell me let me know. Enlighten me because as nbc has pointed out many times is the best player on the vegas nights. He's the only player that talk about. Of course they have to let him know. Nbc jerks him off. All this come on saturday the defining player fuck off with that bullshit. Flurry is a top three goaltender of all time. I think he's third in wins or he's going to be third and wins or something like that. Like how do you not let him know. Especially after you said that you wanted to have him there for the rest of his career and you drafted him as face of your organization exactly and so now. I'm going to move to ryan reeves. Because i think i'm i think i'm like on acid or something right now because i seem to be only one that thinks that this is a huge overpayment by the rangers. Oh we didn't we didn't say but didn't say where are we said. We didn't say where ryan reached the rangers for a third round. Pick a third. A third round. Pick damian nate schmidt got a third round pick. Yeah like i'm sorry He's not he's not worth third third-round pick isn't a and i'm and so when the tree broke i immediately sent you. Because i think i saw with it. 'cause i pose notifications on i send to do within like thirty seconds and i go dude. Alum mayo tom. Wilson and the new york islanders have Shook the entire new york rangers organization to their core. Well so now they're now they're scrambling overpaying swirling in there fucking seats trying to figure out a move to make and they spent a third honor and so then i send it to you on like the fucking dumb ask the rangers and everything and then all sudden i sent into our friend martin to and And so then. I click on comments. Tom well said. And i'm like i'm like okay. Ha ha. this is funny like throwing all like tom. wilson. Tom wilson tom wilson. And i'm like where's the actual talk about trade and then people are like good trade. The rangers needed to boost physicality. And like that is not a good trade. that's terrible asset management. Yeah brennan lemieux. He's going to bring down the bottom six core there and it. It's it's mind boggling. Yes he going to be a physical player. Sure yeah if he's not suspended if he's not suspended i bet you. If he was suspended the rangers would have a better chance of winning a game and not to mention that they extended him to a one year. One point seven five carpet contract after this. I think it's what an yeah hockey isn't all about everybody who score goals but it was six goals in what six hundred games or three in more it might have been three gained three hundred. No you actually has a surprising amount points. I think are you serious. 'cause i saw scratch everything i just said. I never going to believe anything. I read on the internet. Ever if you could double check. Because i'm going to sound like an asshole. No no so. I just hit a hundred points in six hundred eighty six games. How many goals forty nine forty nine goals are. He had he in thirty seven games this year. He had one goal and five points. Okay like listen all right. I will say as much as i talk about him like i. I admire what he does for racial injustice in nhl. I admire like how he like has like if you start up businesses. He seems like a great person off the ice in charity. Every that's awesome great. I have no beef with him as a person but on the ice on the is. I'm sorry he sucks both both like both like skills wise and just like like physicality wise. He just like dirty hits all time. I think it's funny. How much chirps people. But i mean. He's not worth around pick. And that's like oh. I got to say about it. Yeah i didn't. I didn't like to move. I mean again. I guys you only johnson. I can't wait for it to happen. Like i guarantee you if you were to look at the comments right now on it. Everyone's like oh my god good tree tree man. I'm you know. I'm on the one going rangers pulling out and tom wilson. Tom broke us. Tom wilson owns the rangers. Yeah someone goes. I wouldn't pay more than a burnt. Little caesars pizza for his. Tom wilson rent-free opening night brawl does reeves. No yet wilson crying. Yeah so anyhow that whatever. So yeah so you know. It's it's interesting. But i guess we'll keep things moving here back to some news around the league Some good news for me. David krejci up to the bruins honestly to the bruins for them. I mean you just locked up taylor hall. What three or four years five. Maybe even think it was four years. I think it was four and it was a contract. I think it was like five million right. So solid contracts. Linus ullmark to. Oh my god yeah. That's a good pick up the bruins that a lot of great work. Then david create your second line. Senator guy who's been here forever seismic felino. Sorry sorry actually. No waste of a terrible eight million three point. Eight million that is disgustingly overpaid like horror. Funny you know what i want to say now. The leafs paid a first round pick for nichelino to play six games. We'll leave suck. They paid a first round. Pick for six games played. Well it's okay. Because they're also paying nick ritchie two point five for two years. Yeah well anyway. So crazy he he He went on twitter. And i think through the bruins they made like this huge fucking post He's basically he's going back to czech republic shot the check because You know. I am leaving discussing disgusting hole on their second line center position so taylor hall gaping hole because i ruined it. I do like what the fuck mean i think. He's what thirty five so he's he's old enough. i think. yeah so. It's definitely getting a little bit older. But i mean it's david creech. He was he was still. You know thirty five. You're still doing wonders for that team. So that'll line center still a very big loss to them. And i wonder what their next move is now duke by chance to you know what it is a contract was that i don't know i can look that up. Just give me a moment here as up. I trying to say a couple of signs that they did. So i mentioned the nick felino lines mark. I didn't realize how busy they actually were they. Also they did a lot. Yeah they also signed thomas. No sick for that night's crises contracts. Seven point two five probably one of the larger contracts on the fucking bruins. Yeah so the most actually because marshawn sheep. Pasternack chief yes. So he's making like four point five or something do they. Make the move eichel. Get some retained second-line. Whoa whoa whoa wait. That's actually a crazy jack. Eichel taylor hall and then who else. Who's on that wing pasternack. Marsha say move eichel the first line put birger on the same. Okay okay all. Right i can. I don't wanna break up perfection. Line hole on. Who could they even trade hold on all mark the end. They signed him from the. Maybe don't know no 'cause they want the equivalent i didn't mean to uh omar came phone bruins From sabres probably want. Oh my god know who they. I don't know if they can actually trade. I would probably have to give picks and then they would have to give Jacobs borough maybe as one. I remember i remember vegas lines You know various options trade for them that they asked for really home that fake. That was a fake one though. It has been away. There's no way. I like a- vegas. How the opportunity. That would have taken it all right. Okay yes definitely bullshit thing. I actually don't know who the control no because they just signed him. They signed a just signed a lot of these players sign trade. I mean that's not a problem. Especially if you're getting jack eichel that hardly trade like jacobs the neka carlo. He's great i think they would trade. Maybe they would. And then maybe two i but they all they all they have is the cap space this point. If they can figure out a trade they can figure out a trade but any new cap spaces there. Now that's interesting. That's actually real and from right outside of boston he wa- he would like to go there so they're gonna have to retain a little bit and you'll loki be player that the only player that i like on boston hall and mcevoy mcelroy's from freeport so our oceanside anyway see that's crazy Speaking of the sabers you have here. That jack who's rift with the sabres deepens. Yeah with the statements made you see those statements man. I briefly skimmed it. It's a the metoo honestly share. But like i didn't care enough to read four lows. It also came out like just a couple of hours ago right Leeann late last night. Oh i like the picture too. And i didn't see basically yeah basically just saying how Jack would be able to play for the start of the season. Even if he were to have the surgery now that he wants even right now a couple of months away you'll be able to have it but they don't want him to have this artificial disc replacement. They want him to fuse. The fuse the other disc with the plate or something which would take a lot longer. And it's just like you know. Let them have autonomy. You know i mean. I guess i never really knew how much influenced that organization hat on their bodies like. I don't want to be like some guy was like. Oh let them make their choice. Like i get like the teams have to be involved in these decisions because you know you you wanna move this guy you wanna garner these assets like you don't want a guy who's not gonna play that i guess i understand in a sense. Yeah but i don't understand it again. It's him like he needs a surgery to get back to one hundred percent like you're going to waste skies career his life on It's weird. it's a weird situation. I i wish that he would just get traded or any so. He can do whatever he wants. But who's to say they're also not showing medical records. Ooh well who's to say he doesn't go to this next team and they don't give them the surgery. I don't know it's weird. I didn't realize how much of an influence again at they had on on these decisions. I thought hey. The doctor said i need this. Let's get this. But i guess they have team doctors that can say whatever the hell they fucking want true. Yeah so like well. Obviously they would have done it because the deter agents are world class and they're not idiots sitting in a bedroom right now I can they bring the arbitration type thing to have to be able to like. I don't know but then like why not. Why are we at this point yet. I don't get it. Yeah you know. I don't know so i don't know weird weird. I don't like it at all. Hope not at all free jack. Eichel come on guys. let's get it. Let's get it trending on twitter. Free eichel bruins order rangers by free. Acl yeah so him. For ep. forty showed up. i like patterson too much person. Suck it bitch. Oh that was a good patterson socket bitch. I love pd. Oh they need to. I know not so many times right now. They need to get the fucking contract sign. I don't think that an offer. She is coming because of how much like teams are spending much but yeah man like just fucking get it done man. You'll doing bruins doing no let they wouldn't do it. They don't have enough caps. What would happen if like a team offered five million dollars for pederson and then the rain accept it. Oh yeah he has to accept the first yes oh. Pd hughes get resigned and dickinson. To and just gonna say fuck it. I would i if i was. I always say oh which is offering five million a matching forgot. He would have to approve by eight years. I would cream. But but he's going to destroy the economy of of jim benning in the eighteen million cap space right now for the three of them. They're fine yet. When million of it being rumored to go to allies pederson getting ten million us all the all the other defenseman that are getting nine eight million dollars. I'm not saying that's not good though. I'm i'm not saying he's gonna he's gonna get like six north six six seven six point two five seventeen million irish. So let's say a patterson's only gained like seven point five five by three. He's betting on himself died or better contract than bars or more money than bars that they've been using it's comparable i think it's seven point five and then hughes maybe between six and six point five for so that's fourteen right there. Then you have four more million for the other guys. They're gonna sign him. For like two point sixers attrition tomorrow. There's another guy holy levy but he's eleven less than a million so they'll be fine. That's the point of the moving cow space for for pederson so i'm concerned about next season with brock best syria. Well where are we at this point. Is there anything you wanna cover really quickly or do you want to do. I mean we could go through like all the signings and trades. It's just there's literally one hundred and twenty-five signing well we can. We can just go through name off one one. We'll go back and forth in like say our like our thoughts about them then all right. Yeah so we'll do that. And then we'll go onto conducts islanders. Start from the beginning of the Where i'm seeing where it started. Hopefully by like where counter garland got resigned. Which i am right there too. Okay so Lovie yeah. Let's talk about that. You didn't think that he would be last right. Oh yeah. I even put a thing and a lot of people agreed with me. Maybe it's because we have a lot of under fans hundred senate but alexandra of what thirty five thirty six thirty five just thirty. Six thirty six signed a five-year contract point five million dollars. I think that. I think he's not gonna play off season. I mean granted. If he stays completely healthy he goes on. Like the tom brady. Diet and like re changes entire work life and like becomes an absolute machine at the age of forty. Sure go maybe finish it. But i think that he's either going to end up on lt or he's going to be he's going to be like the fucking guy who ends up in arizona again at the end of his career just like everybody else does and i don't know i just five years to me at this stage in the game for lovie seems a little too steep but could bureau a for me. I think it's if there was a player in the nhl that you could see going till forty one. I think it's lovie. I don't think crosby. Will i think he's had too many concussive injuries. He's not really had too many He hasn't had anyone that are like insane. But at least recently you know so. It's like i don't know if there is a player. That's the top caliber that is going to continue to forty one. I'm going to say. And i think he's banking on himself to break this gretzky goal record. Which if he gets thirty goals over those five years he has already one h thirty eight hundred thirty one each and every single season and then he beats the record dude if he has like three fifty goal seasons. He's got it. Yeah well that's all. I think i think he's going to wonder so anyway. Let's continue which one you wanna talk. Let's go one on one talk so i guess we can skip over the knox right. 'cause we'll say that for later. Yeah yeah. I rented monterey. I don't really care for so this here pisses me off fucking lightning getting more godley. I forgot about this cheaters. Back at it again acquiring seabrook. Who's never gonna play another fuck. I agree this right. Here is what i find fucked up like the trading l. tr l. tr. Contract later tyler johnson for. I do clear. The space for tyler. Johnson for like. I didn't have problems with the kucherov thing season that i didn't have problems with this. I do have a problem with i agree. Yeah this is messed up. It's it's annoying and it's just yeah. It's bullshit i it's so fucking stupid annoying. I hate this team. I like the lightning are just despicable man. I i hate the lightning dude. Yeah no yeah this one. I've never felt this. I've never felt this feeling towards another fucking team in any sport. Yeah i i agree that this one's really fucked up. I don't like this at all so you learn. Well you got the next one here. Gabriel winds up actually saying in colorado eight years at heaven million. How old is he he's early thirties is he. No he's not. Yeah wait. There's no way that he is landis or my role he's twenty eight okay. Stars close thirty six so thirty six. That's up i. It's just that you know you're signing him in your locking amid for this long like you have other players that you got the sign like they're such a stack team. What a lot of young guys So tough they thought that he was going to be there. Yeah i mean. I remember saying he's going to the islanders. So it's kind of kind of a little bit Yeah the the the rumor right the day before the The it opened up. They were saying that they weren't even talking anymore. There there hasn't been any talks in and all of a sudden day of boom. Gabriel lindskog eight years seven fucking million while i was listening to thirty one. Thoughts And freeman was saying before the expansion draft the talk of stop between avalanche scott. They're gonna pick it back up. Once everything's chaotic weekends done. Take some time to cool off and there go so Trust and elliott not us. Yeah all right what you got for next one only because we were you're hating on carolina they lost maroshek to. I don't even know if he mentioned that. No we didn't so we were just talking about an adult chevik so they lost everybody. He goes to toronto three years. Three point eight razek and campbell interesting. I like i like i like that Tandem campbell's been playing really well. So that's interesting to me. It's not bad Bad i kind of like it My thing is though. They lost that hyman and he wants to sinn for seven years and track and rolling. But like like this is way too like if it was if it was like five years or four years. That'd be a great deal. Yeah seven years couple years though it might. It might look better because you have to think right now. We're so concerned about these contracts being so high or term too because it's a flat cap so in a couple of years with like this new. Tv deal and everything like that. It's gonna start rising so five point five might look really low. Let's say five years from now so the back end of this contract might look a little bit better than it really does right now. I don't think it's a matter of what he looks like and then he plays you know they're they're they usually drop off pretty like early so i don't know yeah interesting interesting Alec martinez he resigns. He's another guy that was rumored for the islanders Three years five point two five. I would like that on the unders. Maybe maybe a little too much especially considering that's basically what fucking ladies contract was but he's just obviously a way better player. I would have been okay with that. Good signing for vegas. Honestly yeah What do i talk about I guess i'll briefly mention mike riley because another another islanders target by three good contracts. Got me mad three by three. I would've loved that. I always had it at two point five whenever i did my cat things but i am mike riley. He's a guy and i I'm actually gonna watch him. I wanna watch him and see how he does another cheating. Classic guy blake coleman. he bro. This contract sucks all fucking years. Four point nine. Av blake holman He got the bag. Does he deserve it absolutely. Not but it goes back to back fucking stanley cup champion. people are going to overpay for Experience it's almost like the stanley cup. Rings like blinded the calgary. Gm like when he was doing the signing. It's like it was supposed to be like is supposed to be two point nine for four years. But instead like coleman shine the raise your point nine you know so yeah. I don't know. I mean he did have thirty one points last year in fifty five games but again that's on a stack tampa team and again the style. He plays man. He plays really rough And he's twenty nine thirty. I don't like that deal. It's kinda akin to a the david carson deal a few years ago wherever it was like what the fuck he. Yeah so. i don't know. I don't know i don't really like the deal too much Talk about freddie under ryan suter to the stars four years by three point six. yes i. I don't like the term especially because of his as old. Yeah that he was asked her guy that everyone was like. Oh we're gonna but yeah was two years for like four million so a little bit more cap for shorter term. I would have been okay with that. is not the worst deal. The data are the worst deal of free agency. So yeah i. I feel you on that i guess next for me would be miki. Grantland for years five mill- that's a lot of term again for four years. I don't know. I mean i it's over. I don't really know the predators situation all too well though to really dive into what that move really means for them just an interesting signing for me for me. Alex weinberg three years for four point. Five with with the crack and so They got their first line center. That's good deal. I like it. Oh so yeah the rangers so you know how they're trying to get all physical whatever they got. Patrick nimith three years two point five again on like this big fucking. We're going to get big. We're gonna get physical. We're going to wilson. Yeah we're we can't get bullied anymore. I mean good move. You know in that regard. Tom day kind of doubled down a little too. Hard for me Yeah me too David savard good contract. Montreal fuck you mark bridgeman but David savard got a good deal. Or you got a good deal for david. Savard three point five million for four years. It's pretty good. Yeah i just ripped them. From fuck. In columbus ohio economics had done that instead of a talker pullman but you know whatever my guess i don't really care for those guys are so your boy. He just got bought out brandon. Hope he hope beast got bought out and then signs a one year. Two million dollar contract with the stars Interesting good deal. Good deal for two million not bad. Yeah i mean it's not bad and You know provide good back-up i forgot who their starter is right now Ben bishop son. Lt are or was injured Could open one somewhere right to go somewhere else. So maybe he is going to be starting Interesting tanger oh yeah him too. Yeah with so. He'll technically be the starter. I believe Yeah okay Can holland again. Fucking up signing cody. Cc'd four years three point. Five million come on. What are we doing these right handed. Defenseman were getting paid way too much. This is like the twenty sixteen free agent class where everyone's getting like overpaid in a certain position. Yeah wow there's an edmonton fan in the comments of the saying legitimately considering not watching hockey anymore And breaking connor mcdavid requested a trade. Yep so fucking dumb is another. One is looking at k. L. offers so yeah stupid stupid stupid good too much money. Yeah much term Just to save some time going to scroll up just a little bit past. A couple of these guys are going towards like depth yet. Deaf players here. Oh there's a few good ones are a few wild ones. Yes so let's go. Oh ian coal. He's a guy that i would like to. He sounds a one year. Two point. nine million dollar deal easily could have been done by the islanders but he signed hurricane so that was interesting for me. Fill grube our six years. Five point nine million to the crack in philip group our yes that's not Oh crazy shit It's a big contract big boy contract so okay here we are. Yeah that's that's tremendous and i mean he. I don't think he was great. He really fumbled the bag into playoffs. So i wonder how he's gonna play fleet the no other fucking years five point five million dollars. La la la this one yet. That's a tough deal. That's a tough deal. You got the money he wanted. Yeah no he got montreal. They're kind of fucking up. I i mean. I don't know multiple ways interesting interesting deal. Jay schwartz took the crack in four years. Five point five million. That's big contract to couple big contracts crack and maybe they are trying to be competitive after all. Yeah well that's what. I was calling saying that they were gonna do You know a big splash and try and say as low as they can in in the draft trade whatever they can and then just spoil lash in free agency. Yeah i'm going up a little bit brayden point all eight years mazing nine point five contract. He deserves it. He does easily the best center right now. Well i don't know why lease on their team based on their team and he's scary. I hate them. I can't i can't stand them and that's a good thing for him so Eight years now. Five got paid boy got paid so I wonder what they're cash situation. Go look like maybe we'll do dive on that soon. speaking of big contracts dougie hamilton. Seven years for nine million That years that's a big one. I mean you're going to have to pay him to him from the canes. So you know the devils david have a lot of space though the if if there's a team that has a lot of space it's them i mean now they're paying him in. Pk a ridiculous amount of money. Their defense pk. Only has one year left though. Yeah so we'll see I'm kind of going back a little bit. Only because he's a former islander and it never really worked out josh ho saying that he was not tendered a contract qualifying offer so he was a free agent and toronto's the first team to take a dive on him to give him a professional tryout. Not a contract yet. So i don't know. I mean skill was always there so i wonder if he has a chance of cracking. This the you know the roster. We'll have to wait and see. But i felt to be interesting Oh yeah mike hoffman. Three years for four point. Five to montreal to deal. We've got one now that that's definitely good to one and We talked about earlier. Linus ullmark he. He left the sabers and he sat with the bruins so he's had a four by one of the last ones i wanted to say is Zachary resigned six years nine point five eight three million a year Skis nuts huge contract for somebody. I guess wants to stay in columbus which is good that they at least have somebody. That won't stay there here. So yeah that's nuts. They had to pay him the fuck macomb stay in but in the In the same token i do wanna say whereas whereas worth amount. But yes seth jones signed in chicago. I don't think i mentioned it on the The podcast on tuesday. But it's like a nine point five something jones for seven years or something like that crazy man. I don't like that at all See i think. That's the last one i want to say. Yeah i mean that. That's good for me too. I think we did a great job. There was a lot to cover. There was a lot that we didn't so sure. You guys know a lot of it. And i'm cheryl come up in conversations further from your But what a. What a phenomenal. We for. Free agency fucking. It was insane. This is the most moves i've ever seen. Yeah i feel like yeah definitely so for me. So i guess we go onto conducts islanders talk. Yeah i don't really have much else to say. Because i covered most of it on On tuesday i mean one thing. I don't think i mentioned is alice adler sign in la for For three point five for one year. I think Fine economics if they would pay three point five for him. I would've been pissed Best can defenseman in history in franchise history but you know what The eagles guys spread his wings at some point and go somewhere else. So duh doesn't have the legs for it but also maybe tucker pullman dozen so i don't know that that means yet to be seen Also whoa where his. I wanted to discuss real quick. I didn't discuss on tuesday is Who's asian was it. Somebody said that connects media is negative. Okay so i'll recommend larson's con Contract his His agents said about the negativity about our larceny. He goes vancouver's a tough market media and fans wise so driven by negative media. So unfair they are already all all over ohio. It's why some free should stay away from vancouver. The media scrutiny. Yes i remember saying this now. Yeah and it's like to fuck off fuck off on sorry. Now i'm going to be negative media because what are you talking about so it was a whole big group of like media members that were just talking right after they were like and they were just like commenting on each others posts like oh don't be too negative and it's like you be critical of a team. You can be critical players contract. You know what i mean. Granted some fans take it out of proportion. I mentioned that before some vancouver fans are bonkers but same for defense. Yeah as as we know was mention that but yemen so as all. I really got to say. I mean yeah if you guys wanna hear more about my takes on from the past week or listen to tuesday's episode if you haven't yeah we were talking about pederson whose contracts before. Apparently they're both committed vancouver at her agent. They wanna stay in vancouver together so hopefully they get something done soon. Trance on the athletic said on or address on the van cast said. Oh yeah i mean hughes might not report or he speculate. He didn't report that he's not going to report to camp. But he's saying that he might not due to his Contract yet contract negotiations because of the ten to see clause and they usually anytime someone has attend to see so tend to see clause they usually Take a little bit longer to negotiate a contract so we might be seeing him for a while. Also shout to jeff patterson last steps on the van kassy's joins cares and price see. I was actually pretty heartbroken yesterday. Listen to that last episode so any who. That's all i got for. The canucks was discussed. Islanders yeah man. It's been spent a while since i've spoken about them and a lot has changed but not a lot of change. So you kind kinda covered a lot of it. I already mentioned josh saying he wasn't offered There was a couple of other people. Like michael dell call. He wasn't offered a thing he wasn't signed by any team released yet Which i found interesting. I felt like he was a hard worker So i wonder if he does find another squad or not nonetheless though You know. I hope those guys place in another team The islanders cap space in a andrew ladd being moot created some cap space and nicoletti being moved created some some space and jordan. Abberley being selected. I know you mentioned it. And very hard to see him go It was sad. Not gonna lie. And i wasn't ready for it for him to actually be there and where the jersey you know most players they were just like oh yeah. He was selected and then they went on the next thing but no jordan heavily was there. He was mccracken jersey Pretty far jersey by the way Stand stood there. And i was like what the fuck i can't believe it. He's gone so sucks but it cleared up a lot of cap room for the islanders Eighteen million to be exact plus another six with the l. tr boy chuck for this last season. So there's a lot of people sign and they have the space to do so now all eyes on fucking Vivier that they're talking he's trade. You know they're saying he. He's being rumored to be involved in the tarasenko trade big l. theaters do that i would i would riot i would be at. Ubs arena tearing it down breath. Neither in cars like thank you. I'll be flipping cars if should tarasenko Yeah sure tarasenko right now is probably better. Be maybe won't get to that same level. But i love pavilion. And he does a lot more for the team. That just that. And i love him. So pelvic being rumored wanting seven million dollars Seven million dollars. I don't know. I don't think so buddy we're gonna need to see some more You know offensive output from you before we give you seven million dollars like you are seeing big contracts for defenseman nine million eight million seven million But their offensive minded guys. And i'm not trying to say oh well you know you're playing defense like good job. You're doing your job but for those for that type of money and you need to be doing both. And he's not so. I hope they get it to somewhere. Five six range and maybe three or four years and if you can prove that you can do that which trust me. I'd be more than happy for that. Then sure seven million. You know While it's wait and see though what happens there and every single person that's been rumored to join. The islanders in this off season has just been taken like everyone's being picked away. They only moves. That haven't happened are sankoh. He hasn't been traded yet. So that makes me think that the islanders are still like the front runner for it because nothing has happened since free agency started. That's very true island having a single person. I haven't had a single person. But i'm hopeful to that. You know palmeiras assigned anywhere Zajac hasn't signed anywhere What's his name has signed anywhere. He's rumored joe signed a contract. Pomares room to have signed a contract already. So there's a lot of talks to be done. i'm sure lose. Just trying to figure out all his in house contracts i before he goes outward and tarasenko is probably his big fish at china real. And if he can because honestly eighteen million dollars for byu pelvic palmeri that makes sense like. There's not really lots a lot of room you know. We were worried that we weren't going to have the same team next season incher. There's a couple of pieces missing one hundred percent but I think they did what they had to do. The signings guy. So i don't know I still think they needed defensive guy. And i still think they need another top line forward but palmeri probably play that role love to wait and see and that's all i have right now off the oh i got chirped oxy route two. So i'm very happy about by the way. I want to clarify this before i get into this. I love the fact that we got him at pick. Fifty two far guy who was supposed to be a top ten. Pick to fall to fifty two insane. So i'm very happy about the pickup happy. I love the pick and ever since he picked like the day of he scored four goals. I know you mentioned that. He's goals and the showcase story. And you know. I damned him and he replied to it. Oh yeah yeah. congratulations bro. Or whatever and he was like oh yeah thanks man you think he sounds like yeah so i He seems really cool. You saw it in his press conferences. Kind of like a revenge tour going on in his head. I think as he shut so yeah no great and ever since then he's been turned it up. He leads the junior. So case and finland's in the finals. I think right now so all lost usa. They just lost. I think last night. Yeah okay well. He's doing a tremendous job. He's doing a great job. yeah. I think he's playing in the second place game or third place game. Sorry i should say but anyway Again he leads. So of course i under fans are through the moon through the roof flake excited and so am i. I think he's doing a great great job where he's at. I'm happy for him. And i really hope that this is a sign of a good future but i i don't want to say i'm being too critical. I'm trying to say that. I'm being a realist is that he always was great and juniors. It's when he went into the men's league that he struggled struggled immensely But but cova did happen jordan schedules. He didn't really get to adjust the right way. And i truly believe that with the right time with the right minutes played the right training. The right everything. He really kanter's transition to the men's league and play well. But i did compose a tweet to. Am so i was a little tired. I didn't really date the way that i should have. I i'm assuming but Mike tweet went along the lines of saying sorry. I should have had this up before. I replied to I guess an insider james nichols for the islanders. He tweets a lot about them and He has quite the following He tweeted saying you know he's doing great. So i replied. I want to be hyped. But we know he could perform in the juniors. He struggled above that. Bullets blamed the weird kovic seasons and i was being serious about blaming the weird cova seasons. I guess you kind of read my twitter saying that i'm kind of mocking the fact that they're that they're blaming it but it's a legitimate question for me. At least you know and everyone is getting quite upset. He was eighteen. Horrible take So playing versus men's had all the reasons and know the world being turned upside down didn't have any like people. Were coming at me for no reason for no reason. You know no reason whatsoever like i. I don't know. I understand that you want to be excited. You want to defend him know but not everybody's attacking just a legitimate question as to can he play at the level that we want him to play at and you know. How long is he going to take to get there. But i'm very excited about serrato. I know. I know he's gonna play in sweden the season. I know he's gonna play there. And then this whole experience with men so that hopefully by hopefully by next season hobie here either h. level or he'll be playing you know best case scenario. hr level. But i doubt it. I'm excited though. I if he could be like are two lines or second line center. You know it'd be cool. you know. Be right underneath bars. L. barzel roddy ratu right underneath them. I also just looked. Yeah it was last night Cooley from the usa. I don't know yeah. he scored. Ot winner so. I think they're playing in the third place game. Because i know they're playing today I mean i guess. That's all i have to head for the that was pretty good So i feel pretty good about that. Sure i miss something. That i'll probably mentioned in the next couple of episodes toughness for you guys. I think that's it right. it's for you. i think i'm good all right.

Game Misconduct Season Preview

"The lease. Is that game misconduct podcast with Don league-record and welcome back everybody. Hopefully everyone had a phenomenal summer. The season is almost the honest about a week away. So we'd figure he give you a little bit of a taste a little bit of a preview in the reaction on Twitter was tremendous. People have been asking all summer long ones game is conduct coming back, and I was finally able to nail down September twenty fourth today. So not sure when the next one's going to be, but we'll get going once the season starts will have every single day recap of the games from the night before, but we'll give you a bit of a preview. And since it's a Monday, why not go to our Monday guy? That of course is EJ Radic NHL network Monday through Friday you can watch at h. l. now from four to six eastern time, EJ Don league-record. How are you buddy. You know, it's it's so true hockey fans. It's, they're just eager like the puck gets like we, you know, we raise the Stanley Cup in Jones, and I mean people want games again, like in like three days later, you know, fan had there whether it would be little or no off-season at all. Just start right up in the next season. But you know, the players needs a little time to to get kinda back into gear. And there was so many different moves and things that will happen in the off season. So a lot of ground, a lot of things to talk about both now and moving forward. And of course, the best thing I saw last couple days is you drop in the puck at Ramat poll college. I believe they are. They're hockey team was playing and they had you at all right off the puck. Yes, though I was honored. They gave me a gorgeous jersey Greco on the back. It was terrific. They played Hofstra. They beat them tend to to lot of fun. It was a lot of fun going out there, seeing a lot of the fans people coming out so they got, they play their games at the ice fault in Wayne New Jersey, and they've got nice place. The hit men were playing the rockets. And of course, the rockets that was the team that. Jerry Roenick play with when he was a kid so that the bunch of rinks and really just cool atmosphere and people just love and hockey, grassroots stuff. So I know that always gets tagged towards more of the Canadian thing. But there's so many little outlets around the United States where you see how much the game is growing that people care about it on the college level highschool peewee, and there's kids playing the sport parents going to the games, and I think that needs to be promoted a little bit more because you stats where you see the sport grow EJ, right? And you see how much Dallas is into hockey beyond just the stars and and in Nashville that when these NHL teams come, they come not just to bring NHL hockey, but just to bring hockey in general to these places in, you know, we'll also we've seen New Jersey players make it to the pros. But this is where it begins that that little kid skate and yesterday or even the guys playing the the higher levels can be your next superstars in this league. So I think that needs to get promoted a lot more. I I, I mean, you said they had Greco on the back of the jersey like that was the surprise like, would they have had Smith? No, they could've just given. Jersey, but they gave me the. They went the extra mile with the full nano used to people go on the full nine for me. You know what I'm saying? Come on down the everybody loves you. Come on people. I wanna say one thing, the jersey hitman. Yeah, there that building there. Toby Harris does a great job with that program, real good guy, and you're absolutely right. I get to be around these rings all the time. My son Brooks was fourteen and playing Danna may level hockey with the brick brick hockey club. I'm one of the coaches there, and you know, every weekend this weekend, we were doubted igloo in laurel plan, and there's just, you know, teams are coming in and you know the kids and the coaches, and everybody involved lot of people, you know, sacrifice their time, the adults to the involved and the kids just love playing. So it's always great for me. I always say the same thing down for me whenever I'm in a little bit of down mood and you know me so that can happen a little bit of a down mood the I always when I go to the rink, I always feel better. I feel like it's like my how my home and you get to see hockey people. So it's so true and it was good to see out there. Donnie puck. It was great. It was a lot of fun. Got me really in mood, not just for hockey, but to get back into the podcast and the day in day out of it, and let's get started. I listen. I know we're both east coast guys and of course that's what we're both station, the New York metropolitan area. So we're definitely focused a lot of time on the Eastern Conference to me, the better stories are coming out west, right? The improvement of Calgary Carlson going to San Jose, Ken loss Vegas duplicate what they did last year Coble Chuck returning to the NHL in l. a. with the kings, I just think is just so many great stories out west. Yeah, I don't think there's any question about it and you know some of the managers out there. I've talked about the idea that everybody just kind of like, you know, low keeps loading up. I mean, you know, San Jose was in the mix of era that didn't get them a couple of months go by. And then the sudden they make the trade per for Carlton. And now when you look at their blue line, you know and have Carlton and burns on the blue line, not, you know, not I, I don't think it quivalent to win the ducks had Pronger need abide or because I think those guys are just such complete where such complete players and really two of the what top five, ten ever to play hockey. But in our in this particular era where there's more of the puck moving defenseman to have those two guys back there, providing the jump from the back end. It'll be really, really interesting to watch the team that's already very, very good in the San Jose Sharks. So you you're absolutely right. I'll be curious about, you know, some of the other like a team like Arizona, Arizona, desert three or weird teams like you know that the Oilers were good to your physical, they were terrible Lage, or are they going to be better there. The coyotes finished strong last year, but you know me I'm never big second half play because a lot of your so far out of it, you're always planning the backup goalie and teams as Uman nature tells the teams don't get. So I'll be curious to see if the coyotes can build on how they finish. Last year. Dallas has a new coach. Minnesota has a new general manager, you know, Winnipeg comes back with a terrific, terrific group nationals gotta. Be disappointed how things finished with them last year. Everybody thought they could win. Saint Louis made some big moves in the offseason. So have some goaltending questions there in an injury would say Talon right now you just go on and on your actually, right. The Western Conference is the pair the east. I look at it when people ask me to predict it, I kind figure it out maybe wrong, but I kind of have an opinion on it in the west. It's really hard to get a real Graham on it. Yeah, because they're just so many really, really good teams and they'll we just mentioned, Calgary kind of loaded up. They go out and they get Neal home. Ryan also know a Hannifin because that's always been looking at the Calgary Flames. There, there's they really need it. I thought to kind of bring together a blue line at sometimes I thought kind of underachieved. They've got some names there, but watching them play. I always thought they could play better. So do you like what Calgary did the changing coach? Our big Peter's guy thought he did a good job in Carolina. I think he'll do excellent in Calgary. Is that a team that can compete with San Jose in the Pacific? I mean. I can be in the battle. I mean, it all comes down to Mike Smith being healthy and playing well, six years of age. So that's a question Mark, right? When he was healthy last year, they were better than when he was out when it was out. It really kind of fell off with them. So he's obviously key for them Bill Peters. I really liked him coming into Carolina. I liked the fact that he went through all the steps. I really, you know, in Carolina a little underwhelmed by what happened there. I know there was some limitations, but at the end of the day, you know, I didn't see that team really moving forward over these last couple of years. So I think for Bill Peters in Calgary, now some of that stuff, you know the the Calgary Flames have shown they're willing to spend money. You know, we're not gonna be able to look at Bill Peters now and say, well, the organization just didn't really support him. You didn't have the money, couldn't go out and get the players and a lot of young guys. I mean, this is Bill Peters is the second job he should know exactly what he's getting into. This'll be a big test for him to see where he's at. You know, they moved Dougie Hamilton, I'll out of their statistically Dougie was pretty good, but for whatever reason. Fit within their group. So you know, you're round goes back as a captain a little bit older, but still in pretty good player. Thirty four years of age. Hannifin comes in still a lot to prove for him. TJ brody's a good player. Hamernicks solid by her fans, don't him from his time with the islanders. So I, I mean, I think the players are there any upfront real Monaghan meal. You right down the line and they have some pretty good offensive players, but they're in a very tough conference or tough division and they're going to have to need. They're gonna have to have things go well, and they're certainly going to have to have likes best play well and you know the Golden Knights. They went out and got Paul Stazzone that's gonna help them. Obviously up front, Nick Holden. They picked up on the blue line. But my biggest concern is Ken, the guys that really just had career years for them do it again, can Carlson duplicate Marsha show that is so many guys there that I thought just played out of their heads now that they come into their own, or were they playing with a chip on their shoulder and have career years? Because I, I don't think they can afford all these guys to take a step back at the same time. Time. Yeah, I know. I agree with that wholeheartedly of, you know, it'll be interesting to see how William crossing does this year. I mean, he was just so good last year, talk coaches that was probably a top five player in the league last year, forty three goals and just was a dynamic player in all situations. Can you know? I'm not expecting him to score forty three goals again this year, but I'm also not expecting of course towards six. I mean, I'm expecting that he's going to have a very, very good season and be a similar player that he was last year of the second go round. You know the it is going to be different. I don't know. You know, it's just that's the way it is in in pro sports updated in life. I mean, you know, they came together. It was a unique thing. Everything happened now in the offseason they added Paul stabs me not the speediest guy, but you know a proven center in this league that can give them a little more depth than the middle. I think when they played Washington that was kind of a whole Washington centers, you know, we finally saw a team that had like real depth down the middle, give the give the Vegas Golden Knights trouble. So they had staff in there. They've added. Max patch ready now, who's the goal scoring winger went out made the trade trying them longer term little bit younger than James. The kind of a similar player. He has experience as a former Canadian with the would you go with these system coach in Montreal. So he knows the player they're going to be missing. Nate Schmidt, you the first twenty games a year. That's huge. I mean, that's whole suspension is a is a monster story and the fact that he's going to be out first twenty games. He's a terrific puck, moving defense and also shape Theodore's currently on fine as we speak as a hold out our FA. So I mean, those are two left shot fucking defense. And so I don't know things in the preseason of look good, but the feces and nobody's really, you know, we're not really to focus on games that don't count. So when it starts when we start playing for real and shape the door, if he's still not there and they Schmidt of obviously going to be out twenty games. I mean, that's a big hole in left side of their defense to fill. And I think that kind of looks at the top heavy part of the Pacific Division. I liked the Kovalchuk acquisition for the Los Angeles Kings. I'm not sure it changes. Them all that much. I don't know how you feel about it. I think it's a, it's a borderline playoff team much. Sure that that moves the needle enough for me to think that they're that much better because a call will return. Yeah, you know, it's funny the other night cold took minute nice play in a game against the Golden Knights game with six to one. I believe at the time he went any beat, you know, a minor league defenseman against their fourth or fifth goalie and the organization, and everybody was like, wow, the textile highs it. I mean, I have no idea what that is other than the fact that he's still could stand on skates and be as good as like really back in players in a game or themes getting blown out. I think that Cobo Chuck. He's got a three or deal. I think the first year was really cheap because there's a lot that I wonder about with him being at his age, thirty five. He's had some injuries. He said everybody says, and I've seen the photos that he's in really great shape, but you can be a great shape on your thirty five. Maybe it doesn't translate other nights tonight basis. They need him to come in and score their top line. You know, winterless left wing or last year had nine goals. So there if they, if he can come in and put up twenty five goals, maybe more that will be just an unbelievable pickup for the kings. I think by the third year that deal, I don't know if we're going to be if they're going to be happy with it, but I think they're looking at short term. Let's face it. COPA Dr Carter Dustin Brown. Do you do doubt? He just re up for the long-term Jonathan quick. These guys are in the window to have success and they're trying to have success. I think in these next you know year to three years with this group. So we will see if it pays off. I think if they could have got in on the mecca patch right there was some discussion about that. The draft didn't play out. I mean, that might have been a better fit for them younger player who's been playing over here in this league now, and it's up to speed with what's been going on, but I'll be curious that's for sure. I'll be curious to see how kobylt Chuck fits with the team, how we we plays with it. He works well co Petar and you know one thing about COPA chart as well at thirty one. He had maybe the best year that he's ever had last year. And I love Andrzej COPA, try. I think he's just a wonderful player. Terrific. Two hundred foot player. Does everything. Well can help you went but unfortunately, father time undefeated right. So came COPA. KTAR have the same kind of year this year. They had last year. I think if he can get close to that, that's a huge plus. I don't know if he'll ever have the kind of year that he had last year the the production ninety plus points for a guy who plays the complete two hundred foot game is a lot to ask any might have had more if you think about it, if he would have had that goals, boring wing on his side. Remember Jeff Carter was out for a large portion of the year, and we're gonna see how Jeff Carter place this year at thirty three. So there's a lot of questions for the LA kings, but they still have the high end guys that in the short term can make them dangerous team. Now when you take a look at the the central division, it's Winnipeg Nashville right now, those teams pretty much stayed Pat, but the big improver that Britney much remade their forwards. The Saint Louis blues, did the blues do enough to get. In that Nashville would have paid category? I really liked the blues team, but I'm just so scared of the goaltending j. count is already hurt, and he's got issuing a back bay was back bathrooms and training camp. So that's that's an issue. I believe that's the case. Chad Johnson is there as a guy that's down to run the league. And you know, I don't know if he's a guy that can play that really can carry the lion share of the of the games for you, but you know, I think that's still the Arab just, you know, John, you know, we've talked about this for for many years. I've just never been a big, Jake Allen fan. I put a couple of your whilst he seemed like he kind of turned it around and and maybe got over that hump. But then he kind of regrets again. So I, you know, he's twenty eight. He's not twenty four and we're, you know, I think maybe it is what it is with Jake Allen at this point of his career. So that's the biggest concern. I mean, the rest of roster. I like I like their defense is good enough with portraying jlo Perico. You know, Bobi is getting up there but still helpful. You know. A second pair, third pair guy, you'll Edmonton. It's been a pretty good player for them. You know, I, I really liked the additional Riley for me outside of Thompson. They didn't give up a ton to get him. I know there was a lot of assets but spoke to and Macklin were guys that really were. We're back in players there, and I think they were looking to open up space for young guys to kinda come in. They've got a lot of pretty good young talent within their organization guys like Robert Thomas Robbie fabrics coming back a little. He got a little dinged up again, they're looking to open space for some of those young guys. I you think about down the middle now when you have a while can play in the middle, they picked up Tyler Bosak who's really good third center. You know, they've got Schwartz's playing compla- the play, the wing, he can move to the middle of maybe they could move some of those other guys around Shannon's. Another guy plays can play the middle. I like their team, but Donny, I'm just really scared of their and that and that. And that could be something that takes them right out of the playoff, not forget about Stanley Cup on doctor take in a very tough division where. Where you know you think about, you know, Colorado, we've got a good young team on the way up Dallas chains coaches, and they've got a lot of high and weapons, and they've got his skin and who's a really high draft pick who's gonna come in. I think she's going to be a really good defense for the Dallas Stars. You already talking about Winnipeg in Nashville. Minnesota always seems to find a way to get one hundred points. I mean, it's not easy in the central division. So for the Saint Louis blues, they've got a hope that Jake gallon gets healthy and plays. Well for the Chad Johnson can show us something that he's really not shown us in his whole career that he can play really well over a long stretch. And I don't know if he's played behind this team, but that's the real worry for me. Then you got you said you mentioned our zone a little bit earlier vastly improved towards the end of the season, but you need to be able to do that for eighty two game schedule. Colorado had that great run last year. Can they duplicate that? I'm not really sure, and just waiting on Edmonton, right? The hair, the Edmonton Oilers team that I thought it was going to be good. Last year boy, they really got exposed. We talked about it on game. Misconduct, their wingers just seemed to not be able to keep up with their centers. And so do you see of the teams that I just mentioned, do you Colorado a playoff team? Edmonton was not last year Arizona, not last year. How much do you think they'll be any changes from year to year with those teams? Well, I think I think Colorado, I like Colorado to continue to move forward. I think there's a fast team. They got really good gold tiny. Now, when you think about the addition, you know they've made, you know they have, you know, they made that trade to get Phil rube our from the Washington Capitals, and then they also still have a gold center that has been a good one there, and it is in the final year of his contract and involve off. So he's got every incentive to play well this year. So that's what we talked about the blues and having goaltending struggles. What looks like Colorado's pretty solid and goal. I think the reason they went out and trying to make the play for hours because they had injuries last year and they got into the hamburglar was playing Andrew. By the time they got the right well does of injuries. So Eric Johnson, this back healthy. That's good. I'll be curious to see Samuel Gerard this year where they picked up, played half a season for them. They got him more than half from from Nashville. Good puck, moving defense when they've got other guys on the way and their group, they're going to be better down the road and the force they have the Ottawa Senators. I overall first round draft pick next year which may end up being the first overall pick and they couldn't get it on the on the use week stakes there. So I mean, I like the future a lot for the avalanche. I expect that you know they're going to be a playoff team, the the the the coyotes. I like what they've done in the off season. The biggest key. Again, you go back to Donna is always the goal tending when Rhonda was healthy at the end of the year, he played really well. They got gold sending out of, you know, out of the other, the kid they got from the LA kings. It's about serenity been with Minnesota Dorsey camper. They got good goaltending on the ham. So that's gonna be the keep like, you know, they've got a pretty experience defense with excellent lower goal ago d- the mirrors y'all Marson right on down the line. Chickens coming back from injury, good young player. Those young forward. They have really showed a lot of talents Keller was great. Last year they've added yell shown Yock. I'm kinda route route down. You have to play well and do well at the center position there. If they give them that full opportunity, they added Michael brand new Brin speed to the wing if another experienced guy. So a lot will depend. Goaltending is good. And those younger players can continue to move forward the coyotes. It'll be hard to play every night and that will make them a dangerous team. Let's go to the Eastern Conference real quick. You're EJ. And then you look at the teams that missed the playoffs last year. The only one that I look at that might be able to make the jump with some of the moves that they made would be buffalo. I'm not sure that the islanders the Rangers Carolina Detroit, Montreal. I, I don't see one of those teams making the jump. Now, do you think the sabers of those non playoff teams have the best shot to get in? No, I think the Florida Panthers those now. That's. Good point. Obviously, that's obvious when they came right down to the last day of the season to be able to get in. But but but of the teams that really were poor last year, the teams that were out of it pretty much as we got into into April latter stages of March, Florida, put them to the ciphers because I do think they are a playoff team this year is, is buffalo the top of your list or you'd have them also with everybody else's, not making it again. Well, I'll give you my quick beauties and I'll go to buffalo is that I just think of the team's last year that were in the play offs. I think the only change we're going to see is that the devils will be out in the Panthers being. I would have been in last year they had in the started bad. And if the devils didn't play just dog on the well down the stretch when he caves, which was lights out, good golf, gone for Florida, which hurt them. Yeah. I mean, now injuries always play a part in this, but let's say all things equal here on September twenty four, two thousand eighteen. I think you know. And again, it's always subject to change, but I think that the devils, I think there's going to be hard for devils to do exactly what they did last year. And I think the Florida Panthers, they just had deep arosh or you look at the team. I mean they're loaded with players. I mean there there were team that you know for those while you don't even wanna play him in the first round. Yeah, you're right because they got some horses. They're in Florida. If they could stay healthy and you know the question Mark for the Panthers is really going to be their goal tending. I mean, we keep going back to goals then, right? It's the so silly you know that you know it's always the case in hockey. It's it's, you know, it's one of those things that's always goaltending baseball. It's always pitching, and you know is Roberta Longo gonna be able to hold up over the course. Of the eighty two game schedule. He was dinged up. Bless your missed. A lot of time is you know, you know, behind him James rhyme, or is he going to be be able to come in and be a good player if they need him to be a good goal tender. So you know, I, I love the Panthers team. I mean, like you said with what? Some of those and they ended up my coffin. The share. Hopefully he can get put the off ice things you know behind him because that's a guy that can score from heck of worry. Helpful, helpful winger in a place where they have centers. I mean, think about this Lupu forward. I mean, Mark off Uber, no Hoffman tro check nukes data and off. I mean, that's that's six really talented forwards right there. They got Henry works from coming in. There's a really high end young rookie that can be a really top player for them. I mean, they're loaded throughout their group and undefended again. I mean, equa know, had the injury issue when he was punched by Domenico day. So hopefully not gonna have any after affects. He's that's concussion problems. But I mean, he's still thinking he's only twenty two. I mean that kid, Michael Matheson is an underrated defenseman real good player for them. You know the question again because back the golden. So I'll be curious to see our plays out, but to go back to buffalo, the asked me about, I think that the pieces are in place for the Buffalo Sabres to start moving forward to question will be, will the well the whole will the franchise stay moored? 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. I would think you could do better there, but you know, this is a really talented roster, but that division, I mean, the Boston Bruins are really tough. You know, the the Toronto Maple Leafs we know what they've done in the off season about the Florida Panthers. I mean, those are clearly the best four teams in the Atlantic Division to me on paper. And you know, you could throw them up almost in any order depending upon how things go for them during the season. Yeah, that's definitely going to be a fun division to watch Tampa. And of course, Taveras in Toronto is to make them a lot of fun as well. What? What's your feeling now on the blue jackets? Okay. We've been waiting for this team to pop for a while, but they just can't seem to get out of the first round. Where do you think they fit with everything in the metropolitan division? Well, they're a good team that's for sure. And they've got some really talented players, but the biggest problem I think going forward going into the season is simply this. They've got a top forward. It was going into the final year of his contract. You know, much like the giant era situation last. Year that has has has vocal has been vocal about the idea that he really doesn't wanna make any decisions over forward as one every Sunday long-term deal, which which always, as I said, you lashing, we talked about Taveras. I mean, the fact that he hasn't signed tells you that he hasn't fine. I mean, that's all you know, it guy sign if they wanna stay somewhere. If they don't, they, they let it play out and it's, you know. So how is that going to work for Columbus is a your co- kicking line and going to get to a point some point during the season where he's gonna feel the need to trade our Chemi penins. I don't know if they get off to a good start. Everybody's happy there. You know what? Maybe they just ride it out and try to win the Stanley Cup with the team. They have. They have a damn good team. I mean, they have the same exact question goal with Sergei Broncos. Right here was contract. He's their guy. Do they feel like that you own this corpus Holloway's, right? They take the reins. I don't think so. So I mean the negative on on Brodsky's that in the last couple of, wow, you know you when you have a guy that high end, that's one visit trope easy. You just want him to be the guy to to. To to stand up and win. You know, find a way to make those saves when you games. Now it doesn't. You need help from your teammates. But I think in Columbus, if truth be told they probably they probably sitting there going by which we could just a little better. Just wish the, you know, if he could just find a way to be a little better in the postseason. Maybe we can get to that next level, but you know, Steph Jones coming back. Terrific. Trivia and really should have been north Toby finalist in my view last year I'll be curious, see what happens when and ski going into the final year of his entry level deal. And he's, they've been tearful women preseason because he's had kind of nagging shoulder injury for a couple of years now. And so that's a little bit worrisome. But boy, he's a high employment as well. This is a really talented team and a good a hard team to play against, but but Donny with the Ponente tuition and the Borowski situation, those are things that we're going to be cloud that kinda hang over Columbus, Ohio throughout the season unless seems also a great story. Let's get to the tweets. A lot of people want to tweet and I left. I left the. Rangers off here because we know we get a lot of range of tweets. Well, let me just disclaimer what I'm about to do before we get to the tweets. If you're gonna complain to me that your team hasn't talked about tweet us and we'll talk about him. All right. We try to get as much again, and a lot of ranger fans. A lot of local guys get involved because he, I are both in New York, especially me. This is a national podcast. We try to talk about everybody, but if you want your team to be talked about, you tweet himmy we'll talk about him. So I sent out the tweets every morning and owned a recording. So let's get to them. Rob asks the question which ranger prospect slash rookie. Do you think we'll have the biggest impact on the team this year? I like Anderson a lot. He's had a good preseason if I had to guess somebody I would say it'd be Anderson. Yeah. I mean, I, I like fantasy a lot really competitive kid, and I mean, so that's, that's a, that's a huge thing right off the bat is that you know that that makes him somebody that that stands out, you know. But I would say the two of them last year when I saw Filipino, I thought Filipino was was really good. Yeah. I mean, in in a short window now, you know, things were, you know, the wheels are off the bus at the end of last season, and you know, they were really just trying to play out the string at that point. And you know Anderson had kind of a long ear because it will juniors and he'd have been dinged up, and you know there was a lot of things going on with him so he looks good so far and in camp, we'll see. But I think those are the two guys kind of focus on. We'll see some of these other players that they've been able to acquire through transactions in, namely the Tampa baby. Oh, you know someone like read how at some point, Libor hijack. Hi. Can you guys step step up at some point where they're going to be in their developmental twenty, twenty years of age, but you know the way things go. Now we to the rebuilding, put those kind of guys in the lineup. So right, I've become I. I mean, I have to say he don't Anderson. I'd be with the guys to really watch. You know this year as far as the really young kids get an opportunity to play in New York. Michael wants to do you see this being a breakout season for possible Bouche Navid you seemed hamstrung by ABC's yo-yoing him in and out of the lineup for two seasons. Well, I mean, you gotta hope it is right. Boots never was. It was a high draft pick. He's come over. He's played Bolillo base and flashes of of really being a good player. He's twenty three. Now, I think that there's every reason to think that he's gonna get an opportunity to really be a big part of this team. I saw a nice school and one of the preseason games against the devils. So, yeah, I think you know whether or not he is going to be for me to say, well, he's going to break out this year. Could get hurt in the first game of the season who knows. Right. But I think that. He's a hydrophobic. He's an elite prospect. He's gonna get an opportunity to play and he's played some ready. So this would be an opportunity this you wanna see if you're a ranger fan. If your ranger management, you wanna see Pavel buchnevich take a big step up this year and the what you thought he was going to be when you draft. All right, how he wants to know what team is projected to struggle or had a rough season. Last year will surprise the league. This year. Buffalo coyotes islanders Rangers have sends connects. He believes it's going to be buffalo. Well, I think buffalo, like I said, it'll be interesting to watch. They've got the tenants in place to have really good longterm success. I think there's some questions there. I think that'd be more competitive. I just like you can look at it though, you know, in the Atlantic. Okay. Were they better than they better than Tampa? Knowing they better than Toronto? No. They've been to the Boston. No, they've been in Florida. Not not. Not really at this point. So you know. But I think at the year for the Buffalo Sabres and I say this, a lot of defining you're done, it's just for the IRS for Phil Housley in that group for the players for for everybody involved, put your head down, go to war, be there on night. One just played two games as best. You can play. 'em try to stay healthy if you can. And then at the end of the game, you pick your head up and you see where you are, and if you know what, if you find yourself in the playoffs. That's wonderful. If you find yourself making a huge step forward, all of a sudden you've you've progress throughout the season where Jack gyco has taken a really as rightful place among the very best players in hockey, and he's been healthy all year. If Ross Mus Dolly and they've had a really good rookie season is has really made that transition. And that their goaltending has been good and some of their other young players have stepped forward. Now all of a sudden you really happy. So if you finished fifth in the Atlantic Division, if the sabres and you had to say, have ninety points this year, that's a rate season, but the only way you get there is one shift at a time. One one game when period when the time for teams like the Buffalo Sabres and that's what it is. So we'll see. It's been. It's been an organization where that boat has been rocking for a long time. They're this steady the boat out focused on the task at hand and play hockey and just progress. That's the biggest thing from Buffalo Sabres the sheer. So we'll see. We'll see how it plays out, but I just think they're in tough in that division with four teams to me or better than I got a couple of minutes left one squeeze in a couple of more tweets, Chris resident, flyer, fences, a lion annoy verte, ready injured, Elliott stole recovering from injuries as a possible. Hextall may call up Carter Hutton at some point. Yeah, yeah. I mean, I think I think it's possible. I think I think Ron Hextall has been very careful with these young players and that's and I think that's been awesome because in a place like Philadelphia where you know, we all know they haven't ones, and so you know the broad street bully, Erin, seventy five, and they've been to the finals a number of percents than they haven't been able to win. And there's a real desire to win. Ron has done a nice job of stockpiling from talented young players. There they have some experience veterans have been very, very good. Obviously, closure was was fabulous. Last year for check was terrific. Van Rie was like they bring him in as a free agent originally flyer. Now, backing Philadelphia Torri had a kind of a breakout offensive season. We gotta see what's going to happen. Wayne Simmons the final year of his deal. You know, Travis connect me really step forward last year. You know, see what happens with Nolan Patrick into your to, you know, on defense with the, you know, Ivan pro Ross is one of the best defenceman in hockey ready. I mean, this guy. When you've been watching plays dynamic and fun to watch gossip. Spreads are great, offensive defenseman. They've got some other young guys coming, and again, we get back to the goal setting and I think Ron's plan is it just a Tri fold with Elliot and noisier you know, and by another year or two for Carter heart. But that said, I think that, you know, sometimes guys come in at a younger age and sometimes opportunity becomes available and they come in and they grabbed things and they take. So we will see if that opportunity is going to be is gonna come through either injury or just his play at some point. But the history there is that Ron Hextall patient and I'll say one other thing because we told you, we started this off talking about these kids in jersey, playing hockey, our buddy that he stole ours is jersey boy, goaltender big goaltender a lot of potential there. He was hurt most of last year when he would have had an opportunity to maybe step up. I heard these by Jerry very well on training camp so far. So you know, maybe there's an opportunity France, and he stole ours either in Philly or somewhere else down the. But you know, I think that Ron again, I'll fly or fan just look at the, you know, look at the president, Ron Hextall has been patient, and so until he differs from that and goes away from that, I'd have to say that they're likely going to have heart-to-heart have another year or two development, but you never know. And corny says, been so busy today work. I probably missed the deadline. Oh, well, welcome back is we'll Courtney guess what you didn't got in just under the wire. So we're able to say Hello to you and welcome back. All right. Got a runny, Jay. Thank you so much for this. A really appreciate it. I love to get back into the fold again, and I think we'll do another one on Monday before the season starts. So if you're available October first, let's do this again. I'll make time for you done. You know that. All right, buddy. I'll talk to you next week. All right. All right. That's the great EJ Radic he could see him on the NHL network Monday through Friday and NHL now from four to six PM eastern time. So as I told you will be back again on Monday, October first, the season, we'll get started late around that week. And then once the season kicks off for real on October, third, then we'll be doing it. Every single day like we normally do during the course of the season, but who wanted to put something up there kind of get into a bit of a preview and see where everybody kind of lies. You wanna tweet me. He can do it all day. Long at Don Greco hashtag game is conduct. Lance your questions, and we'll get more indepth with our predictions coming up on Monday, October first.

Podcast there and gregor along with ray ferraro and today it's a special ask griggs. Anything pre tree deadline edition. So i asked you this race we prepare for headlines and we'll keep that somewhat brief because again we want to get through as many questions and ask her in grades as we can. Are you up for an emergency podcast. We haven't done one of those in a while. So i'm thinking maybe post trade deadline on monday april twelfth or the morning of april thirteenth. Today you don't be good that we should do monday night because then then i'll know what it was like to work in a coal mine because i'm starting at five. Am for the trade center right. That ends at two pm organ. This pacific time. Then we have to tape a hip for sportscenter so that will finish to thirty by the time. It's all done then. I gotta jump in a car and drive down to the studios to broadcast the leafs and canadians game. So get their three. Fifteen warm-up starts at three thirty then once we do warm up. When i do. And then i gotta talk at the duffy twice again before the game starts. Then we'll do the game. That's three hours. Basically finish at seven. Come home and talk to you again. What are we to finish the day. I'd allow it. That'd be a salty. Ray for that's a lot. I mean i'm fully what it's an emergency gotta be done. Maybe we delay the emergency tuesday. I was up then then like your brains on tuesday. Just think you're going to be oatmeal monday night. It is okay. Well so here's what. I'll do them for some reason. Bob mckenzie's on the panel. I guess because the only dust them off for a special occasion or they will in a motor. What is wheeled out. So he'll be a museum piece now. Well he's fully vaccinated and he's in good shape you know he's trimmed up. Have you seen him. He looks great. So i'm getting pumpkin for leaps game. So i'll be. I'll be fresh. I'll be ready game for a quick emergence. You're gonna hang on bob's coming out of retirement is going to do the full day. And then they're gonna staple into that chair to make him do the game to love it. Though bob renegotiated deal it was probably the way he could squeeze a few more as john. Davidson used to say shackles off. So he's doing like three or four leaf games which i didn't argue with. Look i like games but on trade deadline. Oh you're going to experience it as many years. This is the the worst one i had was we for whatever reason i did. One from the arena. In calgary and i had to be there all day. Yeah so they wanna be up for whatever was going on. So i do. I do the trade about four o'clock. I'm like madam lowered my voice here like i got one of those. I had to do the game by the middle of the second period. I couldn't talk so the producers. Like say anything i. He's going to say anything a so. It sounded like a guy chewing on glass. And i think it was cuthbert. I might have been bored. I don't remember and they basically had to take the game to finish it off themselves. That's the last time anyone's been in a wrinkle day while that wouldn't be a problem for gourd he could pit bull off of meat wagon all right. Let's we're going to jump into headlines here. But i life of all everybody loves a little personal touches that we put on the raindrops podcast. Now you've had all even new puppy for what three weeks two and half three weeks after coming up three years five years. I'm not sure what it is. So i'm thinking to myself. Would you confirm before we recorded. We established and we've had cami on the podcast to tell some great stories of how finicky you can be mean you like things in a certain way. You're very organized. Your bit of a clean freak all of those sites which i highly respect and appreciate. 'cause i'm not quite that extreme but i have those tendencies as well Two dogs and a cat in the bigger house. Thanks le- i've got a senior citizen dog still as its faculties so on occasion crap on the floor as we've also talked about the podcast because they stepped in it in our bedroom. Want right but for you. I mean a puppy. it happens all the time right. They take squirt on the floor. But it's now her on the tile or somewhere where you can just quickly clean it up and the way you go like. That's the part that gets me with with with dogs or the new policies especially okay so all these wearing us out. I gotta be honest these about five to six pounds. My hands look like they've got darts in them candies hands. She's with the dog more with all the more her hands look like she just stuck the partway in a meat shredder. Like it just because the dog fighting with lightning and those little pencil teeth. Now they're just like zing zang zing take him and take him out take them take them goes inside take them inside has as a three lexa water again. You're like how like. How did you do that. And so i i am getting quite a lot of instruction as well. Yeah because i'm not as attentive as i probably should be like i sit down and watch five minutes a game. I look over that all these gun the bathroom again cleanup him. Clean up the bathroom now. I've got the game on pause. It takes me four hours to watch a game now. If it wasn't so cute. I'd really have. I'd have an issue with them. So i totally transformed the house. We have a bunch of throw rugs around. Yeah they're all wrapped up in or rolled up and put in the basement. He piece of rock squirt pizza. Run-scorer like come on you. So i mean you're probably tired of hearing the dog owners. Who think they know it all say oh it gets better. It's gonna be great. It'll be fine and it does and you know it will eventually your lip moment and right. Now it sucks right. But here's what happens. And i'm not going to get too graphic because it's gross but they do get better but like humans. They get sick right. They get sick or they'll get mccain. Why do you. Why are you telling me this. Like i'm just getting through the first part here. I know but imagine a hundred and thirty pound great dane with the runs. Can you imagine. can you up mad. No okay so bill all the is going to be eighteen. Pounds tops. Plenty yeah whatever is coming out of that. Great dean at a tiny. I can't even think about that. Well i'm just telling you. I mean at least it'll be fleeting and it'll happen once in a while you'll be you know. You're just a beacon of positivity moving on the headlines well going and put all the up for whatever adoption well headlines brought to you by our friends at google dot. co cool belts. Chris abbott will join us a little bit later in the podcasts. As he does every week. He's got the latest masters odds news. Notes round one underway at augusta. You've got to be nineteen years old. You've got to stay cool bet responsibly. And check dot co from by the way we had conversation in our pre work here on the podcast with chris about wrestlemainia which we're gonna have to dive into with because to me. It's it's a farce. It's a mega brazilian dollar industry. I understand wrote. I don't understand it. So i'm curious. He wants to talk about wrestlemainia. And i'm curious as to why so we'll get to that headlines. Let's begin with the big trade your former team one of your former teams new york and is trading for kalpa. Mary and travis jack from the new jersey devils New jersey retains fifty percent of their salaries. Both pending unrestricted free agents. The islanders get better. they get older. No question about that. new jersey in the meantime gets a first round draft pick and a conditional fourth which could be a third. What do you make of this deal. I i'm i'm not a fan of call palmeri. I think he's a very useful player. So how much better blue emerald will make the new york islanders. Why i think they got better for sure. You're you're right. It's all about short term for them. They had that all kinds of cap space with the unfortunate injury that offers lee so they loo was going out to get a forward like lou with seven million dollars. A cap space in his pocket is not an idle guy. Like something was going to happen. So i i look at the deal and i think pull. Maria's slowed down. I don't think he can do what he used to do. But he can score. He can score close to the net. The islanders are not going to be a rush team right. So what what why. I like this deal is. The islanders are built a certain way. You know they're gonna four check. They're going to control the puck with their size and the added players that play the same way droids. They didn't know sometimes. A team allowed a player in after the after. The playoffs are over. You go yeah. That guy just didn't fit. I don't think that's the case here. These guys fit with the way. The islanders play. What's interesting though is and tom fitzgerald in new jersey. The general manager traded to very useful players. And got i and maybe third. But it's not it's not It's not a seller's market. That's for sure. I think that's what the that's what that first rate of the of the season told me like the of this. Yeah think you're right and look fizi tawny this trade thought people body got absolutely fleece. Now the one thing i would say and look. I'm appreciative of the fifty percent salary. Retained that matters. I mean literally. it's currency who's given a first round draft pick for kabul mary again with all due respect. He's a good player. Boston wasn't giving a first round draft. Pick for kyle o'mara so fizi gets a first and a conditional fourth. He gets two players that are probably going to be in the american league in in johnston. Aj a gritter but in a bizarre world that were working living in this pandemic with shorten season with all the question marks a flat cap and all of those things. I honestly didn't think there'd be too many first round picks thrown thrown out for rental players. I do think. Kevin adams is sitting there with sixteen offering them first round picks for taylor hall. No chance like it's a hard market the other thing drake's. I don't know that we've talked about enough. Is that okay. So you're an owner and you had a fortune. It was this big and now it's a lot less bake for sharing. Your general manager comes to you. And says i want to add money and you look around and you go At most two thousand fans in the building. Yeah no make do with what you got. The other thing for for tom fitzgerald as well they clear to roster spots here in pulmonary and zajac. They've got a bucket load of young guys that they're trying to evaluate to playing spots to try and move this process along jersey's got some really interesting young players and which jersey and no. We don't talk a lot about them. I know people. Don't talk about ty smith in the calder trophy race. But he's really good player to and nobody talks about jersey. got a first round. Pick for this. This is about the best they were going to do now. Well and fifty being the high character man that he is a loved his quote right on where he said. I hope that we get is a thirty second. Pick in the draft. I hope both of these gentlemen win. Any means assad lip-service fits is an old teammate. A plate with them with the islanders. He's a good man he is. He's really just a good person. All right well as we get into ask ray and rigs in a few minutes here Again as we're recording this podcast on thursday. What is april seventh eight. While the eight first masters come out yeah of course We're not gonna dive too deep into trade speculation just because with date. The podcast almost immediately writing is inevitably. There's going to be things that happened. And maybe the new jersey in new york honors straight kinda gets things rolling We'll talk about some of it as we go through ray drake's but i didn't wanna talk about tomorrow night stuff now in toronto and montreal before we wrap headlines so jack campbell sits a franchise record with the toronto maple leafs going ten all end in crease. A now for thirteen to in one as a member of the toronto maple leafs organization. Are you buying it entirely. I mean are you seeing enough in the play of this young. I to to believe that they don't need to do anything in goal. And maybe maybe. If the negotiation with freddie anderson doesn't go the way that they hope jack campbell could be the answer as their number one moving forward Three weeks ago no now yes and for a couple of reasons rates. Is jack going to win. The vezina sometime no is he going to be an upper. Half of the league guli. I think he can be. Can you win with upper half goaltending. Even if you're around the thirty two starters if you're in the sixteen to twelve range sure why not look at the stanley cup winners over the past couple or past decade look how many teams have used to goalies. Yeah because they washington one and phillip group our was the starter by game three. It was braden holtby pittsburgh three guys one year two guys the next year like it happens. I i'm really impressed with campbell's play. Maybe i'm a sucker for the story. Maybe like i'll tell you it's impossible not to cheer for him. He just seems like such a good person and he went and got booted to the curb but as he was getting booted to the curb. The people that were still working with them dallas. They still love them. They're like i want this guy to do well. Jim nill traded the los angeles just to give him a start a restart. Maybe they can recalibrate. We love the kid. Nothing's happened forum here. And there's a couple of guys in los angeles. That jack has gone to great lengths to credit and billy ranford the goalie coach and dusty mu. Who is kind of this goalie. Whisperer the kind of stays in the background and he hoped jack except the ups and downs of the position. But i watch him play. And i'm like does he get lucky. Sure does every only get lucky. You bet does he make the safety supposed to make and then a few that he should absolutely the only concern. I have of the maple. Leafs is the combined health of anderson and campbell right or they're gonna hold up physically because anderson's a question more clearly. That's a soft tissue issue because they don't have a timeline for him and you know how that works with goalies like sometimes. It looks like it's going to be tomorrow and it turns out to be a month and then with campbell. They're trying to manage his practice time. That would be the only thing that gives me pause with the leafs goaltending right now while. We're told that. Freddie is going to be fine but what does that mean until he told the season's going to be fine three weeks ago too. Yeah yeah the deeper into the season that becomes a concern right. Absolutely speaking of concern brendan. Gallagher lost the regular season at least a six week injury with a fractured thumb. I mean such an energy guy. I don't have to sell you branding gallagher. I know that. I love all in the lineup. I mean that combination with the tar denault had really just come alive to right. So it's it's a significant hole in the line of big loss for the montreal canadiens because of the ti. He'll they can go out and spend above the cap. What about three point. Seven five million dollars to. They need to do that or do they. Just keep things dry for now you'll or is is coming back off and you've got cool caufield who everybody in montreal. I think everybody around the nhl to see how much of an impact he can make as a wildly inexperienced player. What would you do if you're burge I wouldn't spend three point seven five on a winger. That is just going to gum up the project when gallagher comes back there's only so much ice time to go around. I'm using that money. If i can get a top line center i know. They added eric stall but they're still really inexperienced the middle of the ice. If i can do that sure otherwise. I might look for a depth piece. Someone that can help fill in because they still don't know even the war mia's back and starting to skate. You never really know what we've seen. How players are going to respond coming out of kovin like are they is. He gonna feel good. Is it gonna take til next year. Is it going to take a month. They don't really know. So maybe if i'm looking to plug that spot. I look at a depth guy. Somebody that can fill in that. Maybe i can move up and down the lineup. But i'm not looking at a stud player right now because one gallagher comes back i hate that guy in him. Where because if you if you look at the way. They're their lineup is they. Don't really have a lot of ruby screwing up the whole thing corey perry. He's been a game tonight but he's been. He's been to montreal to a certain extent. What jason's fats has been to toronto. Two old guys that are smart that can still play. That can still produce. It's one thing it's kind of a throwaway time or they can play. No they produce. That's the difference. Headlines brought by prowls cool bed dot. Co it's time now ready for okay. Tire performance players of the past week. This is the fun part of the segment. I mean we chewed through some of the meat. We've got expanded version of acid rain. Dregs anything coming up. You go first. Who's your performer of the week. I'd say one of the most underappreciated players in the national hockey league it's twenty-three-year-old adam fox with the new york rangers Fox has a goal and four sisson in just a couple of games this week. I know it's for this week. But i'm gonna love this into drake's eleven game point streak three goals and eighteen assists for adam fox when you start the big little deeper and look at some of the numbers that go behind his performance. He's in the norris trophy conversation heriot's and i don't think there's any real momentum yet for but if more people start to see and understand what adam fox is doing for the new york rangers. They're gonna go. You know what when we talk about these young guys. Yeah my car and hughes and heiskanen among others. Fox's in that conversation. Just think. Three teams for adam fox before even plays a game drafted by calgary. They couldn't get him signed they throw them into the deal with dougie. Hamilton goes to carolina. Carolina couldn't get him signed ends up with the rangers and he is terrific player. He will definitely be in the. Us olympic team conversation one hundred percent all right. Adam fox is right ferraro's okay tire performance player of past week acute on this one little bit to be fair because we've been blessed with some high quality performances in the past you. Can you go back to map or zealous. hat trick. How wild out was including the baseball swing goal that ended a an rush was part of that trio of offense. We just talked about. Jack gamble on noteworthy austin mattheus. He's healthy again. And you can sure see it. I mean zakheim and continues to be what he is connor. Mcdavid leon draisaitl Night against the ottawa interrupt. How abo- dry cycles goal wound. His feet were in the parking lot and he hammers at like what i want a shot or are you kidding me. Well as goal scorer. Okay just tell me how difficult that is impossible traits. It's obviously it's not impossible but don't forget he's not just standing there. He had to move to that place. Yeah he stick has to stay in front of the goal line or else it literally is impossible. Any beats the goalie short side inside the post. Here's the other thing. If you're oughta walk why would you cover him like when he broke through there. He's not even in a scoring swan. He wants to go stand there go ahead. Oh it's in the net hoops insulation soon as i saw it on. Like what a terrible goal you know. And i'm blaming goalie that then you watch the reap leaner like whole smokes that egypt do well. Here's the other thing. The guy that had the puck or you're not gonna be square up to connor mcdavid. No you're going to be. You're going to be them kidding. What are you gonna do. Yeah brilliant performances by leon and by connor mcdavid. But i'm not going with either as my okay. God who you got. Kevin fiala all. That was good last night. Wasn't it wednesday night. I just love stories like that. I mean seattle is a good hockey player. It's it's not like this one comes completely feel. The low it is is first career advert. It was just the feeder of the night right like this is a huge game for the minnesota wild against the colorado avalanche so the message was delivered by the wild in an eight three thumping of one of the top contenders in the national architect. Who's kidding who we throw out statement games a little too freely guys like me do anyway. I wouldn't lump you in that to me. That was a legit statement. Game and kevin fiala was such a big part of it so kevin fiala minnesota wild as it was a statement game to minnesota to their self to show that they could they could hang with these guys phillip group. Our was going to be my player of the game until until he couldn't get the puck out from behind him. Last night is like Or player of the week. I'm like yeah. I can't pick them now. Well you got a good one atom fox Okay tire performance players of the week presented by our friends at okay tire with over three hundred and thirty a locally owned okay. Tired stores across canada from coast to coast who've got you covered from top to tires. Check them out at okay. Tire dot com okay tire. It's going to be okay. Hundred seven hundred seventy slide into throat punch me. I'm a little feisty with throat punch. This week i'm waiting to jump. I'm going to jump on the back. Yours drake's so. I'm going to jump on the back of yours. Yeah i'm no disrespect. Intended here. Because i i am nothing but the utmost appreciation for the medical community especially for those like the individual that i'm in a lump in my throat punch who have committed countless hours in the fight against covid nineteen the educating of in this case the province of b. c. etc however provincial health minister bonnie henry him out this week and perhaps just applying semantics here basically said that the variant that is plaguing the vancouver. Canucks has not been legitimised right. Now i believe and i haven't. I haven't talked to the doctor henry about this. Obviously but when. I use the term semantics. It's because everyone is assumed it's the p. one the brazilian variant right. That is infected. The the vancouver canucks So in answering the question. I guess it's fair to say well that that hasn't been confirmed. Okay all right. What has been confirmed. Is that a very attacked. The vancouver canucks that can axes organization of confirmed that the national hockey league has confirmed that so the misinformation or the lack of transparency around. This story has been very very frustrating to me. So it's a throat punch who dr bonnie henry and a throat flick if you will to the nhl because this pisses me off. Because i've been invested in covering this story. nhl puts out a list everyday. The covert list only refers to the main roster players. Will the guys on the taxi squad. Don't count those cases. Don't matter like that. Does that make any sense to anybody. So people are piling on me and others who are reporting the complete story the facts. The facts are won. T one players as we're recording this three coaches and a member of the support staff total twenty-five all of those people that i don't give a rat's you know what what the nhl covert lists puts out on a daily basis but there again is the underbelly the dark side of social media right because rather than feel for all of the people in the families that are involved impacted societas with the vancouver canucks. They come after the reporters guys like me while he's a fear monger. He's inflating the numbers. He's doing this doing that. So it's a throat A throat flick and the reverse because thanks to vancouver canucks for coming out on wednesday in probably in response to bong henry and saying here are the facts. Here are the numbers. There was a variant. That has been identified that is hit our organization families are now being infected. Not just the players. This is a deep and serious concern. So i wrap it up with an acknowledgement and appreciation the vancouver canucks coming out and being as transparent as they felt they needed to be because it cleared up a lot of nonsense. Okay so drags. I think we're we're now at the point. Were thirteen months into this pandemic. We're all fed up to right here with at all and so my throat punch is to both the federal and the provincial governments for a lack of leadership and lack of clarity. Damn look we all know that. Everybody's figuring this out as they go along right but we're all in appreciation of the difficulty of this but there is no common sense and no clarity and direction. There is no leadership in this. So i thought the start of april would have been a great time to say. Okay we're we're dealing with this new variant. We don't know a lot about it. We're learning that it's more highly transmissible. Let's let's be a little more vigilant. Here are the do's and don'ts just make five or seven each if you give your kid twenty-seven instructions they can't follow them if you give them four they get a chance to follow them so why gum it up and mix it up and oh some schools goal. Some schools don't howl give a break to the teachers have spring break. Let them reset. Let them regroup let everybody take a little bit of time. I know we can't go on vacation but let everybody regroup a little bit. Put some guidelines out there now. The information information from the provincial governments and a lot of times is misdirection. In my opinion. It's not clear direction. It's misdirection look over here. Don't worry about that. they're look over here. Don't worry about that they're how about. Let's just have some clear guidelines. So i feel really grateful today after we're finished i'm going to get my first vaccine shot nice. So if gord miller wouldn't have walked me through the process. I wouldn't have really known where to sign on to get on the pharmacy less to put your name into various pharmacies. So you could get your shot now. Maybe i should know but that should be for everywhere you turn around. There should be information. Go here go here. Go here sign in here here in here. it's the most important issue that has been in our lifetimes. Yeah i think why are why are people having to guess what what do people do. They don't have a smartphone. how are they signing up. I guess that's the part that i wanna give a throat punch to. There was a lack of clarity and a lack of direction. I'm not saying that. They need to have all the answers. But there needs to be some clarity. And they're just is not well and for the record we try not to get too political or shumuel. Go after things on the podcast. People get enough of that by watching the news and going through twitter and all that but in fairness as you've just explain and i've gone through we don't have a choice. It's impacting our lives. It's impacting our professions. It's impacting the people that we cover. Obviously vancouver could oxygen. The teams have been associated. So we're not going to make a habit of this unless we don't have a choice and i don't feel like in episode seventeen of ranger eggs. We had much of a choice. All right good friend. Chris abbott cool dot co now. Join just for weekly stop. Rain griggs so many ways. We can go with this this week. Chris but i wanna go to the bizarre first and then the master seems pretty obvious. We'll get to that in just a second but as we were preparing for the podcasts. You explain to rain. I that their actual odds for wrestlemainia. Like how's this even possible. I mean it's all negatively scripted. Or at least that's my vision. I wouldn't call myself even a fringe. Fan of wrestlemainia acknowledged those who are die hard fans. But how can you back on something that seems so unreal right. It's like trying to bet on what happens on the friday episode of the young and the restless The same thing in scripted It's it's interesting but it's popular. So i think i yes and scripted. Yes he's somebody knows the outcome. So generally the betting limits on these things are are fairly low right like you could probably profit less than a hundred bucks on a single on a single bed but still you can profit hundred bucks. You know the answer. So money's money but what what we found over the years is that people are clamoring for this and you know it's sports entertainment. There's a winner and loser. People like to get involved. So what sports books do is put up some odds and and let people bet on it and then Hopefully they stick around and and play a little bit more. And that's the kind of a marketing angle more than anything One of the best you got on like the finishing move or i suppose you could. Yeah i mean. We don't have markets for that. But i know i remember the so last year. For example we how many german suplex brock listener it in his math. We had an over under and so then the market the the bookmakers. They hate us marketing guys for that because they're like this isn't real like how are we supposed to do this. I'm like well. You have to sit down and count. How many suplexes brock listener does saudi It's it's pretty funny but you know i. It's just one of these things. It's a bit of fun. It's interesting same thing for the royal rumble. Where edge a canadian one And i think he was like six to one to win the event so it was You know as a bit of fun and One of the really interesting things. Though is that because the outcomes are generally known the odds are usually prohibitive to betham. But i guess the news hasn't leaked out too much because When i look at some of our odds like minus two fifty for a winner minus one forty three like those are legit. Can you can bet on those and and not have too much risk. So that's a bit of fun. But i mean listen. I'm a huge wrestling guy. Or i was when i grew up. Yano gorilla monsoon. Bobby heenan Those guys the he's shaped my life for better or worse when you go back and listen to some of the comments but Absolutely loved it and glad that that we have odds honour well in super In wrestlemainia one which was in the silverdome in detroit. I was playing in hartford. Our team got a block at tickets to the hartford civic center. We watched it on the big screen. Like is closed. Shift it was closed circuit. Was we're in Coattail somehow he got the nickname coco. Beware so we call them. Coco the wrestler coco. Beware paul mcdermott. Used to hit the hit guys. He'd come around back of the net and just man he was big and tofte need run people over and there was a wrestler king kong bundy and his finisher move was the avalanche it so that hit got called the avalanche zone with derby would finish somebody off behind the net so we were huge wrestling fads back in the day. Amazing i modern model. My hairstyle after king. Kong bundy as well. I certainly get in with that. But i love it. I love it right. That's amazing that must have been so cool. I mean it was flanked. At that point there was still a realism to it. Like you knew. It wasn't real but people took it seriously. The hulk slammed andrea the giant. Like how could that not be real. Are you kidding. Well that israel by the ever seen the andre the giant documentary fascinating. I mean the life of andre. The giant and part of it was wrestling part of it was disease that he had which made him so gigantic. But i mean they used to pull You'd fly business class everywhere but they take rose out of the airplane so he could sit comfortably in hold a bottle of red wine in his hand and it looked like a small beerbaum drinks. I'm not kidding i. We ran into him in the airport in chicago. One time until the my nickname was peewee. Until they're like peewee. Stand up their stand up there so i went up and stood next door andre the giant and just kind of like off to the side walls or anything was drinking a beer in it was like a little lounge. It was like a toy in his hand. And i'd say lee had allowed guys guys. He had a sweat stain his back. It was this wide. The man was enormous. It must have been everything in effort to walk from here to there for the guy so we started the segment making fun of the fact that their odds on wrestlemainia and we've spent the better part of seven to ten minutes talking about greed. Stories from rustler's so okay. What are the odds for the masters. What are the odds for the masters. Let's go quick. Dj's got to be the favourite. That's a tough one. Dj is the favourite. I know you love your golf so dj and actually justin. Thomas are tied at ten to one as the favorite now with bryson just behind them at eleven to one by the time this drops around probably in the book so these odds will change. But you know all the big names are at the top and everything. I listened to this week guys talks about out. no no name guys in the masters it's always for the most part somebody you've heard over someone you care for. So that's why you see a lot of the big names at the top of the board. I've even heard people betting on patrick reed at plus thirty two hundred. So i don't know anything whether adapts not a patrick reed can play. He's a good guy to cheer for. He's tough to cheer for but he can play. He's one there before my darkhorse a guy that's never one is calling morikawa. I think he's a i that guy's gonna break through. I think the soccer bed is jordan. Spieth that everybody loves speed the one last week. He's not winning this week. That's that's my What do you call. Those are my tout's all right. Yes turn more cows more cows plus thirty two hundred as well. So i mean it thirty two times your money for a bet on him if if you want to get it in and then you got brooks plane on one knee a plus twenty five hundred so i mean some people are trying to be cute and say well. You never get him at that number. Well the reason 'cause they'll probably withdraw before it's all said and done so It's it's gonna be exciting everybody's fired up one of the things you can do as well as wait for the tournament to start. And then the odds will shift in. You'll be able to bet them mid tournament once you see where it started by yet. It's gonna be a real big weekend for for bedding will let you go this. But i mean can you bet on bryce shambo as an example is a love eight gut right and a lot of golf fans. Just can't stand him. Marietta reasons other news a terrific golfer. Can you bet on on a player that to miss the cut or do something ridiculous or you know. Shoot a seventy five around one or something along those lines. Yeah you can bet on guys missed the cut you can bet on him is thirteen. The one they're talking about him driving the green Whatever you can bet on whether he'll be able to do that. During the event you can bet on balls in the water on par threes all in one. It's you can. You can really your bankroll betting on all kinds of things on this event. If you really liked it and i love it probably four putts things like that right three putts for sure. The greens are so lightning quick at augusta this weekend or supposedly is always are always are all right. Chris actress habit from heal dot. Co joining us. Weekly here on the ranger eggs podcast.

We've got some deep questions deep deep deep questions here and ask and greg's anything you want to start with a hockey side. You want to start with the business side. I could pepper you with all of this stuff. Pepper mole man. The drake's Because the role related now. That's it's all like a tangled web. Okay while let's with all due respect to erin who submits the first question. I'm going to ask because it's an important question but there are hockey fans out. There will find it a bit idolizing because it's business specific right. One of the biggest ramifications of the flat salary gap anomaly trade deadline in free agency but the expansion draft for seattle. I mean it's a big question because there's multiple ways you can go with the ants. While i would say in relation to seattle also the caps eighty one point five seattle has to spend to a certain to the floor for sure seattle. What is the floor. Sixty four million drake some like the yeah sixteen threes and change. I think something like that so they also have to draft thirty one thirty players. They don't get to draft somebody from vegas right. Which is quite a perk for vegas all boy so of those thirty players. They draft twenty of them at the minimum. Have to be under contract for next year. So seattle has to draft at least twenty guys that are instantly in their organization and then they're free to spend draft and do whatever the heck they're going to do so the one of the things seattle's going to going to be able to do i think without question is find a team. They're not going to have to find him. 'cause he's jams are going to be calling. Ron francis like crazy and say iran. I got a great idea for you. Why don't you take this guy. That's gumming up my salary cap in the expansion draft. And ron's like yeah. I don't really want them. But i'd like them with a second round. Pick or like him with the first round pick and so in the past when vegas got all those extra picks it was because teams didn't wanna lose a certain player. I think this time drags it's going to be about the implications of the cap teams. Have no flexibility. No room no movement. And so they're going to be able to trade a player that is sticking in the middle of their salary cap to seattle. Seattle is going to be able to take that money but to do that. They're gonna take your assets as well. So johnny asked a similar question so i giving a Just a tip of the cap. Only who wanted to know a little bit more about base expansion and seattle would do things differently and you've kind of touched on that day even toronto who is most likely to lose ice time if the toronto maple leaves add what they need depends which think they need. Yeah i mean if you're at if you're looking at top six winger will. Then it's alex scale chernyak for sure. There's there's nobody else in the mix that's the guy that's gonna drop if they add a more physical rambunctious forward could it be thornton. Have a goal in nineteen games. I mean it's kind of a you know out of the way story right now because things are going pretty well but you've got it thornton player in thornton. That's playing ten minutes a game. It just can't find a way to produce anything and and that's a uncomfortable reality that that they're going to have to look at where it really slap me upside the head. It was a game against the montreal. Canadians or willie landry is unavailable because of protocols. Right they move mckay of up into the top sex not that is not an okay player. But i'm watching and he's got quickness and we are sure works hard. He's an effective player. But i'm all that's why they need another top six seven guy right they need. You need to have another option to move there by the way you know who i think of a lot dregs. And you'll know this player really well. When i watched mikheyev get another breakaway short handed. Pass four genova. I think from my day. I was going to say todd marceca bingo. How is that right yet. I'll have more shan would get three breakaways. a week. couldn't catch him. The guy was a rocket ship. And you just end up picking up the puck. You know in your goalies pads. Yeah he just couldn't finish that last bit. You imagine how much money he would have made. I mean that was a different era of is getting played. You know better than i do. But if you know if he had a twenty percent ratio upon on goals scored which might be high on. Breakaways should know man. He usually get a lot of them. Shorthanded you'd be clarified are would be like. Don't give it back here. Yeah because if they bob boom he was gone he was gone. He's a good man. I i used to have a lot of fun with todd back in the day with the oilers alright. So ring sabers. Fan poland at raise heartstrings. This year what do you got. I'll k. so this is from a collection of suffering sabres fans. It seems raise brother-in-law donny. Granato as discovered the secret. To some saber success is let ross ms darlene just be who rascals dolly is so do we think that donna granato as a legitimate chance of being higher as the buffalo sabres full time at while who knows what kevin adams is is is thinking Obviously i am biased. Don's my brother-in-law out. He's a fabulous coach. He's not just the guy back there that saying harassment. Go do whatever you wanna do right. There are parameters to the way the donnie coaches but there is a way that dawn empowers players to be what they can be. He's got zero eagle it. It's really remarkable when you talk to dawn. Hey you did a good job with this team. And he'll flip it and talk about the team talk about. He's done it forever. Everywhere that don has been there has been success and it's not an accident when he was with green bay back in the. Us h. l. When he got started when he won the calder cup don was on a fast track to being an nhl head coach and then he was diagnosed with With hodgkin's lymphoma so obviously treatment and recovery took priority and it's been a long road back but then he went to the national development team. Ask austin matthews what he thinks of him as jack michael what he thinks among these players these top players went through that program that blossom under dawn's leadership coaching. Don should be in. Nhl head coach. I hope buffalo goes on a run here and they take notice of what he has done. They've got points and five straight games. You'll be the first to tell you. It helps linus ullmark back in goal. Yeah right. But they're doing this with taylor whole i i you know. He hasn't mall due respect. He hasn't broken a sweat in three weeks. Jackals not in the lineup and they're still they have made marketed improvement. Yeah he's not. He's not a pushover either. First thing he did was he started working. Those guys way. Harder than ralph krueger was walking them like we need to work harder. We need to be in better shape. We need to be able to hunt the game better. Yeah so it's not been easy. Well i'm not bought is because i don't know donnie well at all. I don't have the same history. Obviously they you do But what i can do read a resume and for all the reasons that you've just spoke on. I think he has to be given top consideration to assume a position fulltime. He has to. I mean i've i've seen i've read. I've heard the rumors mate lehman because of his connection to kevin adams potentially being a front runner adams's living in it in the moment. If he can see the results and kim and teri guler the owners of the buffalo sabres see the results and they know what they have to go through and what they have to go through is going to be more than a renovation. I know that's word that bugs you because it's not it's either or it's not a renovation. It's a tweak. So if they're if they're headed towards a rebuild and it certainly would be if you're trading your cap and jackal in the offseason. Wouldn't you'll want somebody who's seen it. And donna and literally knows how to mold young stars not just young underdeveloped players on stars so yet breaks. The track record is sitting there to be looked at there is not there's not a An unknown with dawn. Will it be enough i may. Here's here's the other thing. Of course i you know. Badger him about you. Know what do you think. What do you think he's like. I don't know we got a game tomorrow in jersey out like he's really good at that me. I would be sitting there with a pencil and paper and trying to figure out this connection in that connection worried about things i can't control. He's not like that all right From jet fact heard the rumors guys. Ross lubbock for nikita zakharov. Were those true while jump in and say they were true more. I think in the summer conversation between stan. Moment and kevin chevrolet off. So now jenner fact is asking. Is it likely that chevy is pushing her still interested in zap zits or offers the door of zadora off. And what would it take to get that trade done. So i didn't even know this question was coming but i did. You see the mic'ed up addition of zadora off this week. No i didn't see you okay. So after we after we're done with this go logic. It's it's humorous. Because many talks a lot. And that's the sole purpose for making up a guy you don't want somebody who's not going to say anything right but everything from being a cheerleader. On the badge to communicating with either is is the partner or forward or whatever and he'll go time time time time no stuff like that not that much time and then i can't even remember who the replaying but somebody went after. It doesn't matter they're planning but somebody gave an extra swipe at the goalie and the big man came bruising in and just absolutely pull lasted this guy to the wall and he literally big russian is like dreidel with with rocky co. That is a monster. He's a monster was. He's six six six five something like that. Any lit release. is towering over. This guy. you gotta see it and don't talk to but in goalie and then somebody else comes into defender skating back to the bench and you can't hear what the other players saying to nikita but nikitas is like. Do it do what. I was watching. But it's tremendous so anyway. The gift is off. In relation to the winnipeg jets. I think the issue is that nikita either has say this about of players is really good. Games are really good games and his bad games are horrendous in in this particular game again you'll see he even comments he all. I guess i'm going to set my career game record in penalty minutes because he was in the box like well. I let me say this about about chevy in the jets here. Is that Last week trying to think who they were playing their forward blocked. Ohno pure luke dubois and four but ran together at forber left the game. He hurt his knee a little. Bit of an in that moment i went They gotta add another defenseman erik. Forward is really important for them and if he's out of the lineup your next guy's sammy nico wound and because nathan bowl us out for the season with shoulder surgery. I think the jets have to add a defenseman somebody with a little size and a little experience that if they have to go in they can play. They know they can play. The jets are a good team. Yeah and then you've got blake wheeler now kind of twist in the wind. A little bit right right. He's not going on that five game trip that starts today which is thursday indefinite injury. Concussion related symptoms. He took an eligible from brady. Could chuck ans- some stuff. Lingering so i think they just want to get a hold of it. Which is the right thing to do. Get him healthy for the playoffs. But that gums things up for chevy right. You know when it comes to the concussion stuff. There's no certain in any of that. He doesn't know that he's gonna put a wheeler on long-term drake's i think the one thing they will that is Would help the jackson and really the oilers and the canadians and of course the leave says there's almost been a line between the teams in the playoffs and teams out right so your plan. You're gonna be in those teams are going to be and so that may be bide some a little time to wait right. Even though the deadlines monday just they have time to wait. They're not gonna fall out of the playoffs. We've talked about the toronto. Blue are several questions about the lease from goaltending to whether we believe they're going to add that tops six forward so i'm not gonna lumping all that because look we know this toronto. There'll be ample reporting on what the leaves are doing For the next several days and of course when we record our emergency podcast. Host deadline will summarize all Employers question from db. I hope db isn't what i think it is a. It's one of my favorite phrases. I'm not gonna say you know there's a little e beggary going on here. Do the owners have a chance. Going forward with to backstrom goaltenders instead of a consistent number. One it's like having rolleston markkanen conklin a whole over again but with no pronger in front to help or bail them out. They haven't had a true number one since sallow so db is not impressed with the goaltending of the edmonton oilers. Well d be. I would say your problems sit there. They sit elsewhere as well. If you're thinking about a a a stanley cup yeah right. So you could pay ten million dollars for carey price. But you're paying twelve and a half for connor mcdavid and you're paying eight and a half for leon draisaitl worth every penny of. That's twenty one million bucks into guys right. Where are you getting a goalie. The one that he's talking about. Yeah where are you getting him. You like i think fans sometimes live in a fantasy world like you can only put eighty one million dollars into an eighty one million dollars cap. I have this free. You can't put five pounds. A sand in a four pound jar doesn't fail so those goal. Easy mentioned with oprah they mean the stanley cup final game seven that year. Yeah was far mike. Smith has been as good as any goalie in the north this year. Do i trust it. I don't know but they're paying them a million and a half box this summer can haul it's going to have upwards of thirty million dollars spend if you think. He spent an eight million dollars on a goalie. You're wrong because they've got to do something with ryan nugent hopkins. Either sign him or try and sign a replacement if they can't get him signed right darnell nurses coming right around the corner. He's thirteen goals. What do you think he's gonna cost. They don't need with these guys they have. They need about three fifteen goals scores to go around them. They don't need a forty goal score because those guys are so good what they're where they are going to need to spend dregs is find out can oscar cleft bom come back because he's a hell of a player and if he can maybe they're going to be okay whenever and bouchard takes one of those jobs on the blue line. Yeah you're probably cut tyson barrie loose. He's gonna wind. He's gonna make too much money too much money. I'm going to say something. I'm going to suggest something. Outrageous loved ray just dot climate. Oh yeah. Toronto maple leafs are able to pay zakheim. At least fair value not even fair market value because fear value. Drake's five plus plus. Why wouldn't the again depending you've got. Rioting john hopkins like you said. I mean kenny's invested a lot of time in that go chichan. He'll exhausted but it's going to be a deal that makes sense to the owners. Not overpay just because ryan hopkins has been a great teammate. And a wonderful delay in fifty million dollars. You're exactly right you know. Sorry it's a business. You're zach hyman and the leafs can't pay you more than four and a quarter just again. We're just making this up. I am i am. But which is a hefty raise based way makes right now. He's a toronto kid. Loves playing for the leaf says they all do. I'm sure he wants to win. Nothing more than wanting to win the stanley cup of matthew's admire all of his buddies. But the business does take priority. And he's earned his place pending unrestricted free agent. And now you're looking at it. You're gonna to wait a second. Maybe i can get the money that i've earned and i'm trading minor matthews or connor. And leon that's not such a bad deal. I don't think it takes too much creativity to imagine what that conversation is going to go like right right. Like if you're the oilers of course you're you're going to Talk to zach hyman. How many teams are going to be in that list to talk. Zach hyman like honestly what a year is having but here i will say this. He's gonna make a bucket load a money and if you've listened to me broadcast the league games you know how much i like. An admire his style of play. Gotta be careful. This is a career year. You have to be careful thinking that zakheim. It is going to score on thirty goal pace every year. Because he's on. He had twenty one goals two years in a row. I think he's got thirteen right now. Maybe fourteen yeah and it seems like every game. He's on the scoresheet. That's not the case. But that's what it seems like right but five plus. Yeah i'm paying him that. Because i think he makes life easier for the big boys that he plays with right right and the game against montreal canadiens and luck. This isn't a fan club of zakheim in show. It's just one this knowledgeable about goodies. He is you take a shot in the foot right the end of that game basically at the end and he's trying to clear the zone montreal within that empty you know. They've pressured corey pair. We talked about earlier in the podcast. Doing what he does he take the shot in the foot. And you know how much that hurts. And he can't get off the ice. He's not trying to get off the ice. He's trying to make a play to clear the zone to end the hockey game while they're successful they they kill the clock and he he literally the first thing that comes to mind. Is he skating towards jack campbell with his foot in the air hurt so bad but he's got to acknowledge and celebrate with his teammates. So he's not worried about his own wellbeing. He's just going to the crease. When like when he blocked at it just seems like that's what he does on a game to game basis. I will say like. I'm cognizant of how much i talk about him during the leaf game area. And i'm like okay. I got back the train up a little bit here. When pavel datsyuk was playing in detroit. I had to remind myself i wrote it on my sheet enough of thirteen last pavel that guy take a drink of water and i'd be like oh look at how we drank water. I just love the everything that data. Who did i wanted to play. Like pavel datsyuk. If i can reinvent myself it would have been that. that's awesome. I think we've chewed through a bunch but i i do want to give a little bit of love and this is again is a washer. Okay it's vancouver related and i don't dive too deep into the speculation especially when it comes to the young players because you run into trouble right the team. That owns us player. 'cause he would later and go. What are you even mentioning that for. It's it's not going to happen it's silly anyway. Were mentioning it because we're on a podcast from k. Man any chance jack. Us could make his way to vancouver become vancouver. Canucks put a smile on clinton's face finally. So does quinn not smile enough. That an issue in vancouver like what will. I don't know. I've talked to several times. He's a super engaging kit like is he's supposed to be giggle guy out in in public during the games. I never put any could jack hughes adhere to be like no no like how. How is that going to happen. So you're saying paterson for us. Who says now okay. have we all know. Have we just about had enough of these articles. Who says no no me. I see no to all of them. See i i give the the writers those articles a little bit of flexibility because doing insider trading twice a week okay to this stage leading up to the trade deadline. It's shooting fish in a barrel. Right you're gonna have not might happen all of those things but in the early days of the regular season. There's nothing going on in. You've got to come up with four minutes of content. I can appreciate these. These journalists sitting there going. I got nothing. The cupboard is bare. who says no. It's time i get it. I mean i just like. I'm looking at the deals on. Like who says no both teams who wanted on the next one anyway but ever but i don't i don't see you know what maybe the way that Quinn gets to play with one of his siblings. Maybe they draft his brother fair point. That might be easy. Way might have been the easy with this. One again. Sculpted of questionable. Wrap it up on this. Because i bring it up because it is a concern and it actually applies to the trade deadline in what the boston bruins may or may not do its rich rich is asking as to karasu potentially played his final game for the boston bruins and we can't answer yes or no to that because we flat don't have the answer. I know there's concern about is considerable concern about his health. They don't know the the the prognosis and even though the boston. Bruins were definitely in palmeri. Mary in on taylor hall. I think the dawn sweeney is very cognizant of you gotta be careful right like you can't you. If there's an opportunity to add a piece like that without overpaying then you do it but if you're uneasy about what to ca- situation is maybe this isn't a year to do that. That that sense to you right. It really feels in boston like they don't want to have a transition year but the have to have one you know like just think of their you know. Their defense is extremely young and inexperienced they lose crew. They lose chara pretty hard to expect. You're going to be the you know the same team. They could use another forward for sure. So now you're looking at a couple of bigger pieces. Now you've got the question goal. They played their young kid Wayman the other night got his first. Nhl win you know. Maybe it is time to even though they don't wanna burn year berge as he gets older. Maybe that's just what you have to do. All right buddy. I that was good. That was funny. We got to ten questions are so we should do this. I don't know a every few months. Maybe what he's not crack it open. Let the let the mail bag fill up and yeah you know and then we should you know and yeah for sure what's It's thursday halfway through the podcast when it clicked over eight o'clock. Am pacific time. Just if you might have noticed. I'm looking over this. My tv watching the masters two masters over there. Yeah of course. I am going to get my first vaccine today as i mentioned earlier and then Then i got to go by someone espresso coffee. I'm out of amount of my coffee. Really how many espressos do do. Don't miss wrestle own ness brosseau by the way. What a great machine that is really love it the little pods. Put the part in you. Get your different kinds of coffee. You've got got the espresso you've got the medium wants the four todd the photos the intensive with my morning coffee is like i'm not a coffee. I gotta go. I'm trying to think which world championship it was And where we were staying. It might have been denmark few years back but the hotel we stayed in. All of our rooms had a nice little boy. You had the palatial suite. I mean you're right ferraro. You endured and p. auguring Palatial swedes and the rest of us peasants actually have to stay on the lower floors of the hotel. You know it was one of my favorite. They don't lose your story about the coffee. One of my favorite things that i did there with my room looked where you in rishaad will do the stand ups. And i'd look out there. Knuckleheads would be taping something and you cannot stop needling ryan. Rashad can't do it. I'm watching in your like your ties. Wrong fix your jacket. You were on him. And i'm watching from my window a floor above all of that like my afternoon comedy. There are two reporters actually two and a half because so sarah alaska has an example. Does great work. You know host winnipeg jets games. You do a ton of those every time. I'm on that talkie or a c. Sarah pop up on camera. I take my cameras out. And i'm just blast photo right because when you do that you know you get the mouth half old one. I rose all of that. And i just stopped this dolphin every so often when i'm feeling a little ridiculous texter picture. Hey sir how you doing in. It's inevitably with her face. Twisted do that to rashad. Endlessly specially with his hair. And sarah volley all the time so anyway i will say i have seen a picture that perhaps when. I've mentioned you to sarah. That she is sent to me. Rager face yeah. She's got lots dreger face is in contortion in jolly actually pretty good stuff. Yeah she she's very good at it but seravalli two way. Yeah well because he makes it so easy. We have the return feed when we're taping insider trading right. And sometimes he's behind. So i i mean when i'm in studio k let the makeup artists throw a little bit of powder on this old crack face in way you go at home. I don't even really bother like hitting my own studio frank as the you'll bra doesn't while the rest of us can see. He's doing it on does that because he doesn't care. It doesn't care nurse judy. I take advantage of those things to just wrap up the coffee story One of the great things about that hotel in denmark was the little slide out coffey corner and it adds an espresso pods all man. I look forward that. I mean we always have great breakfast. wheat your. Because we're not doing it again. I need a suit right. It's the culture all of those things but those are the little details on the takeaway that i enjoy the most. So i'm i'm a big fan of espresso. I i got it for my birthday last year. I didn't know how much are we gonna like it. Nice it is phenomenal. That a cami gift or one. The kid is a gift and then you but the best part is you get the by the coffee that you like the taste that you like are a couple of different ones and oh of labored coffee got no no but just different intensities and you get the espresso for the afternoon. You know. 'cause i'm i'm so refined as you know lots. There's lots of refinery in trail bc accent. It's a lead and zinc smelter. That's the refinery them scout. Terp me from trail bbc on twitter. I didn't respond. I just. I've learned not to do that anymore. I can't remember what it was about but took a swipe of being unlike. Why would you do that when the bio says you know. A sculptor solan so team from trail. The guy can read it. I can see it. I can find out who you are. Why would you do this to me. You're just poking the bear. And i did i just well.

Leaves the comments slide into the. Dm's let's get the conversation flowing just in. What are you drinking drinking my sweat. That's fallen from my face right now off. Yes drinking from dubko long island favorite abusive powder armadillo which is thought was thought it was an animal animal. But i guess it's not armadillo. Yes i i was gonna say. It sounds pretty close. I know. I know it's i know it was kind of hop So it's pretty good. I have had one of the other ones. There's before i was gonna say i remember the can. Yes yes yes justice. No black. Eew so yeah. I'm drinking that. Would've you do my new favorite company. Captain brewing lawrence comeback. Now captain lawrence brewing company. I saw them again in the freezer or fridge. I went from again Last time was a wbz ib this time. It's a regular easy. Ipa paradise weights cute. Little can hear dry hopped with bravo hops mosaic lupin powder which is basically the same shit that was in the last one but i will say that You could taste that. It's like not as easy. Sounds like i don't know. I don't know how to actually put it into words to a little bit more clear. It's literally quite literally it's clearly. It's a little lighter. You know what i mean. It's not as a deep of the iced. If that makes any sense that do be making sense though. And i kinda like the double one better to be honest to be frank which is kinda crazy because normally mallinder beer per no but i think god the tyzzer changing double dry hot means It up. I'm just assuming gotta just make it's like fuck in cold brew. Coffee basically just makes it like heavier or deeper or I think it makes the hops deeper. Like the taste like dictators like. Yeah i. that's the only way i put it into. Words are now with the my mental state of the heat. This is actually fucking just to give you guys To fill you in on what you're alluding to The ac at my house at the studio broken gone obsolete. It's been like this for a while now but we had a little temporary fix but then broke for sure for about a week now and if you live on long island you'll know that this has been a very hot week and middle of august and It's been a brutal week. I've been in a pool of sweat every single day while working and it doesn't help that. I have many oven aka my pc. That kicks up heat throughout the entire room to I literally can like white my arm and you sweat my hands. Right now are glistening. I feel like i'ma edward cullen from twilight yeah and this is our jordan flew game. You know what i mean. This is as bad as it's gonna get for us. We actually even contemplated going outside. I legitimately had that a an option that we were just going to record this out. I because it's legitimately cooler outside and it's like ninety degrees. Yeah i mean tomorrow. it's going had. There's like fifty percent chance of storms and everything so that cools down be like eighty four. So i'm hoping that the temperature does drop next week. See me seventy nine week. So i'm fucking static for that. I'm pretty hyped. I mean say fucking sucks cock the wrong with sorry. I have to say that you know. I mean we were having this conversation earlier before we started recording because again this is brutal. I'd actually rather be sweating. You're fucking fucking mental dude. I've been outside in cold right. Where like literally your spine shivering. Yeah fiber of your being shivering lifespan. Another jack uncontrollably. You just put something else on you you. You can't this well. I mean usually speaking there is so you if you're unfortunate enough to not have ac. Like ma you know and especially outside there's scape whereas in the cold you can layer up. You know i guess so i guess oh you can't you can't shed your skin like your title fight or something. Ira show title fight messier. I'd rather fucking sweat then be frozen. I don't know. I like i as brutal as it feels like at the same time like i just feel gross our indoors and i'm like literally like i could see i was skin if i was outside i would feel but also also by the way. I'm coming back from the gym. So our pre workout on me. I just worked out just a chest and shoulders so look at his bragging because he works out unlike like me felt a good workout. So you know. But i'm trying to say is i know pump into blood's flow and i'm hot and even our beer's sweating my beers warm. I've had it out for probably. I've had mine for five minutes. I feel like it's a lot warmer. Yeah no no so. We're gonna start checking but let's keep this core song of the week. We have what you have. I got i got selfish thieves by mortality rate girls. Voices fucking nuts. I think. I've said i i've spoken about them before. On the on the pa the podcast but man. They fucking hit so hard. I love this band Yelich she shrieks but like not. It's not doesn't do too much. The backup vocals into everything about them as a pretty fucking gnarly and there more of your sil- mind but really. Yeah they're more like metal corey. I'm going to have to listen to them while they're on our playlist while i'm adding them right now Yeah how fucking you know so me. I went with with an older band expire. I feel like right. Yeah there a bit older yeah. I haven't really listened to them to be honest with you and then Like last week. I decided to listen to them. Finally because i saw it in the playlist. Yeah and this song fiction dude. Sick sick man. I really enjoy them. I'm kind of like mad. That i missed out on for how long i now i feel like i have seen the meta show those without foundation. Yeah i feel like. I've seen them before type shit. Where like they've just been outta show that i'm out on that really paying attention. Yeah but Fiction from expire. Good listen it's on our play list. You can find our platelets on spotify research tea cr hardcore song of the week or if you do follow us on instagram twitter facebook. Whatever may be it is an arleigh link tree in the bio. So you'll be able to find it as one of our tabs so you'll be able to listen to these songs and every other son will be picked and If you don't like hard core now getting check it out. Try something new to try to get our friends into but Dennis was on it for a hot minute. Say showed dennis but fuck you. Dennis found you added to the playlist. So yeah and also if you guys father platelets you'll guys will know this song. The day the pod comes out so you get all except today when you just put it on. But i only mentioned that because he just said if that's true. You know so any hockey where i wish we had ice rink because fax it would make life easier for the back of my neck. You wanna feel he'll be okay. So yeah i think the big thing in the news right now is robyn leaners whole twitter in that blew up. Dude he's sick. I love robin lehner. I know that he's garnered some hate this week though. Yeah which is weird because it feels like we beg for personality in players And then. I can't find another hockey player. Who's ever done a alive in a on twitter before. Yeah definitely. I mean i guess maybe 'cause it's robin later. It blew up a little bit more but like he's actually answering questions that you want to answer like you know. Like if if jack eichel per se just because it's name on my head right now or allies pederson or bars l. Did acuna on twitter. They would do softball questions. It'd be. who is your hero going up. Those are the only answers they would questions. They would actually pederson. Say all ya. My heroes were Had daniel danielson Maybe daniel alfredsson swedish. Yeah and that's the thing like they won't even do real answers. Knock answers or islander like map bars l. would be like. Yeah man mike. Bossey was really great for me grownup. You know i. I really looked up to that kind of man and wanted to. I wanted to You know i want him to resemble my game would say vancouver answer. 'cause you know. He's from port moody. Ah true yeah. So that's like the type of like thing you would expect from like nhl players but robin lehner kept it. A book he kept stack with. Everybody was actually answering literally every single question. I was actually fucking answered and to my like idea. Ooh seemed legitimate. Seemed like it was actual answers from the guy rather than just you know a hockey guy answer. Yeah no definitely but anyway. I guess we wanna talk about some of the things. He said some of the shit that he stirred up in front of me. But i i'm gonna go his twitter now I guess one thing that really stuck out to me one thing that was like the main Focus i guess you could say Was his comments about buffalo his time in buffalo and Kind of the empathy that he feels for check eichel now so As we all know go before he was nylander. Had a little bit of a stint there in In buffalo played on the sabers He mentioned that he was actually injured. There with an ankle injury and the team doctors and everything rushed back more than he thought that he should have been gone for like a week or two writers like he. I don. I forgot what he said if it was like a broken or if it was a sprain of the ankle and he said that they had him on a bike like a week later when obviously you should be resting and letting it heal before you're anything and they were having them prep as if he was gonna get back out on the ice like that week or the week after and that was his experience and from what he was like kind of that. It's the experience of others at the team. And how like the environment of the organization is. Yeah which which is fucking terrible especially because like you know your dream is in the nhl and then you get put on a team that doesn't really value your health. Just values the product that you're trying to put on the ice and rushie back tries to have done their way instead of your body. It's just like but then you're gonna you're gonna have your body after you retire. You know be taken into consideration. Wouldn't you rather player beyond the ice one hundred percent rather than fifty percent and then for risk further injury. Then be absolutely nothing in dirt for you. I mean i. I would rather that but i mean i guess. Apparently buffalo things different. It's like i. God forbid and i i feel bad that i'm even saying his words but like let's say jack eichel russia's back i don't the ice gets hurt even further like what's the value to you then buffalo. Not not saying that like that should be their only thought. But like what are you. What are you doing what are you doing. What are you doing rushing player back from injury and not following the proper steps because you're gonna lose him yet with you're going to damage guys entire life literally. Yeah exactly yeah. Because then they'll be thirty five hundred retire early and be in pain for the next forty years of their lives. Yeah so it's like i. It just doesn't make sense and it kind of like now you know that it's not just being a drama queen. Not that i thought that before. No i did not. I definitely saw that sentiment online. Not that i thought before. But yet i was definitely like an argument for some people trying to i guess defend buffalo and their stance on this. Now that you know of at least another player who went through the same exact situation will not same as act obviously but a like similar position that he was in and now he's saying also other players had the same story so it's a bad look. It's bad for you guys at buffalo. And definitely i hope that management or ownership wherever this issue is sorted out. Because it's it's it's a legitimate issue at this point. Yeah definitely but yeah no. He calls him a the stair man Especially with this next the next thing. Yea let us know what he say. We talked about He goes oh yeah. You're my top five goalies. He had six of them so great. You know i'm so. He had andre best levski. Marc andre fleury to grasp john gibson. All you know four reasonable. I think i think they're pretty to get sick too. Because i feel like he's left out very under appreciated that. We have to do a better job of promoting john gibson. I don't think we do. I fucking love. I mean i do general. I think we just generally needed bring we need. We need to talk about john john. Gibson's fucking awesome. But then he through two goalies. Who i don't quite get being top five in the top six for that matter. I guess so the first one ilias roeken. let's go. we're having twenty two games played or whatever the fuck outstanding games twenty two games played outstanding games and then cow peterson sleeper. That fucking coma toast. That's like fucking ridiculous. Yeah no so pederson. Pederson right and sarokin. He doesn't peterson's are those. Were to like young guys that he picked. I guess he was just trying to keep us from youth in there. I know i know like to better younger players are two younger. Better goaltenders no thatcher dump go. No no i. Don't i'm not gonna say because i know we have here. Who should really be in there. But you see saros. Alex indulge avik. Spencer night these. I'm sorry these goaltenders are better than the two of them. Little true allison dealt cevik. Are you going to be better than sarokin. Yes one hundred percent. I think you're being such a homer. I think he's giving me really good on these top five in the league. He's going to be world better than adult traffic. I'm already so went berry. Gets let go or whatever. Then we'll see how sarokin fares against the you know the dull chevik you think is one hundred percent hop. I think he will be. I think or. I think he has better potential to be than i think. Cal peterson. early sarokin. Two hundred percent do washington does play the door crash. Carolina play no not carolina nobel. Jake specifically just watch him like watch his. The breakdown of his movements guy is not sending you could. You can say the same things that you're saying about sarokin. I don't think you can you literally can. Yeah everybody's cash. It doesn't say them. It doesn't mean great movements and he's sound and he sounded his position and he makes a desperation when he can. I mean so can adultery. I'm not trying to take anything away from him. I think they're all going to be great. Tenders goaltending is taking a big leap with all the young. I feel like the the position in its own right is taking another step same offensive. So it's it's taking a whole another step so you know. Obviously i feel like it's hard to project who's going to be. Who and who's going to be you know the next quick. Who's going to be the next flurry who's going to be. The next guys guys are selling the league but you know obviously kind of. I don't want to say pass the prime because obviously we saw a flurry price just did but you get what i'm saying. I think that all these young goaltenders are going to be phenomenal and probably even better than we've seen in the past projecting going to be who i don't know i feel like i feel like a lehner for his argument. Was just kinda throwing some too young sleeper picks. He's being stupid. i think that. Uc sorrows is also in contention. Man i mean the oh so in the end like that one series that like the round one that they lost it. Nine twenty one. Save percentage right over the in thirty six games played. He has nine twenty seven. Save percentage and a two twenty eight goals against on a national team can't score like the dude is nuts. He's cracked spencer night. I don't have his ads in front of me. But i know he's played like ten games or something but i think that he has potential to be honestly one of the top three goals. The league at some point only had four games played. He's going to be the best in the league. Had four games played do me a break bought four regular season. Give me and then to in the playoffs. He had nine thirty three in the playoffs. You were coming at me for saying roka's be good for having twenty two games play. You're saying spencer. No and he's on defensive he's gonna be the best team in the league next season. Basically when did i say that they were gonna. They were going to play in the eastern conference finals. Yeah because they have joe thornton. It was a joke. Sarcasm doesn't translate in tax my brain. It's hard i was like right. Let's look so all right. Spencer night right okay. Yeah playing boston. College boston college. One of the top teams nine. Thirty eight percents great great great stats. But he played on boston college. You eighteen you eighteen. Thirteen which i guess is good. It's good for like nhl standards but you're talking about you know the us nationals team and junior national team that underperformed one hundred percent. I mean i can't say because i don't watch the you eighteen nine thirty six way. Where are you seeing this elite prospects. I'm here now. Eighteen in six games played. I'm talking about actual sample size of thirty. Three games played. Nobody said but the world's years with the forego yeah you know the us nationals u eighteen team program and then the usa. He plays sixteen games. He had nine three know an actual sample size. It does come down a little bit. I mean he and then again on boston college. He played on a phenomenal team. They're one of the top teams in the in college. So i mean hey listen if he come sarokin play on the top team in the cage l. Like you were saying before but he also you play on the h. l. is you're playing with adults. You're not playing on team. Yeah but you're not playing a eighteen team. You're playing grown ass. Men where goaltenders and other forwards and defensemen or any skater. I should say sorry. They underperforming they play again. When you know young guys play against full last grown adults they under perform look. He's twenty years old and he's playing in the league so obviously he's gonna be great. He's going to be good says heart-to-heart so exactly see what happens. But exactly. but i i think i think bottom line well. I think we can eliminate cal. Peterson conversation percent. I don't think elise roken least right now. The top five going right now is these. I've no prospect wise and future. I thought i think not prospect. Plays only backup. He played twenty. Two games okay. So we still technically a prospect okay. He's technically playing twenty games as a backup. He's not the starter. You're gonna have another season as backup as a whole season all right so maybe prospects not the proper term. 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. I love john gibson that i hope they do something there in anaheim way. I'm sorry i'm fucking stupid. I'm completely forgetting connor book. Yeah why am i not yes. Whoa what the fuck. Yeah connor. Hell book is top goaltender leak. Hello buck yeah. He definitely deserves about the top. Five over sarokin or peterson one hundred percent. Maybe even rask. Yeah well well ask. i mean. 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. They they have to be trading him especially for the cap that he has to so. Because i mean i imagine ullmark own mark. He only signed like five mil- right or four for four years five mil so he only five million is like rookie contract. He's like a one million at most. So i mean that's six million right there. Then rask northern six millwright task has to be. I don't on paper now but No so i mean it makes sense. But i mean that's a that's a thou- Let's say ten eleven mill tied up in goaltending which isn't terrible. There's other teams that are worse Seven million like florida in their goaltending situation Oh he's seven million years. That's that's about eleven million dollars tied up in goaltending which isn't horrible now more. So i think it's thirteen seven plus five twelve thirteen but silva maybe moving is a good idea. Especially if there's some caps bring in jack eichel who knows that that happens. I i honestly happens scary. It's a scary thought for me being a fan but well that leads into one of my questions. I low key think that you know eichel physician but anyway. That's enough about robin later. I think he answered a bunch of different question. I think he's in like countries and egypt right now or something. What's if you look at his twitter. He's in egypt riding fucking camel camels and he has like a all the the outfits on stuff. So that how i know i. That's probably faulk but he has. He's having a good time. He says him. I love robin lehner. Don't care i know he's controversial. Sometimes and a lot of people don't understand because like you know he was. He was defending What's his name evander kane when everything was going down but yes controversial thing from him. I think more than defending he was kind of saying. Let's wait for the facts type guy. Which i could see both sides of like yeah. Let's not just write this guy off because we don't know the whole story but at the same time it's like it's pretty damning considering again that leads in another question so okay okay. So i guess we'll belong here. We'll go with our big signings of the week. You and bold lettering huge because it was such a big week. Yeah right fall so the three one talk about. I want to talk about three skaters. First and then we'll go into three goaltenders was going to To take a look at all these things So so the first one neo. Pionk from the winnipeg jets. Yeah they were ration- with him and four years five point eight five million Listen i mean. I i like it. But i'm kind of wary. You know i mean i. Defenseman have been paid the season. Yea right handed. I think this is a good deal as an offensive defenceman. Believe he plays more offensively but Yeah you know what fuck. Yeah i paid the especially for years. I think the term good the lower maybe like five five five five but i mean avoided arbitration. What you're gonna do you know you're not gonna sign anybody with point five in. I mean you know thousand. Jake jake rana three years. Five point two five now. That's a big deal. Stevie wide during his magic. It's i think that's a solid deal for him. Three years is good And yeah ever. Since he went to well even before spying on the cops he was planning phenomenal. He's trust me. I know. I was disappointed every time i saw him on the ice. But even when he went to detroit he was lighting it up and made a lot of moves and i think that rana kind of solidify all season here. So i think it's a seal. I that's another guy that about the growing. You know yeah now Your favorite team made a couple of deals florida. Panthers had two big signings. Sam fucking reinhard three years six point five overpay six point five. I don't think so. I don't know i guess it depends. I mean obviously plan on buffalo. So you can't really fault him. He's got twenty goals in that twenty five goals so going to florida a a more solid team and for three years. So it's not a lot of i mean. Hey it could turn out to be very. I think it's i think it's a great deal really. Yes i think. I think that's a gamble deal in my opinion just because i don't know how some heart's gonna pan out. Is he a product of just playing on buffalo of being bad. You know what i mean or is he going to be solid on this team where he's going to be able to find his role here. I mean i don't know what is going to be. What is it. do you have an idea. I mean i guess what the wait till like preseason fulltime roles going to be on this team so you'll be like top line minutes be hotline winger. Yeah maybe i mean. I imagine the first line of jonathan. He radio aleksander. Barkov and sam. Reinhart yeah so then that definitely we will see thirty goals would actually be ready to guarantee that pet. I would be willing to sign. If he plays on the first line two full season. I would be willing to guarantee thirty goals so at that point it would work out but i mean you know depending on what his role is depending on how florida pans out to be interesting. Not only did they bring in him. Sam reinhart they brought in the new journeymen. joe thorton. yeah which is. Yeah which yes. I was kidding before. When i said that they're going to go the eastern conference finals because of him. Yeah so one year. Seven hundred fifty them in general so i thought that you were key serious but like not obviously pushes them over the edge a good. I think there's potential if the if they get the right match. I think they could face off against tampa first round again. It'll be all right. I dunno another year. Spencer night spencer tender off three point for now but i mean joe thornton. Obviously he's got some life left at him. He's not a top line guy just like around town. He was minor yeah. He's a fourth line veteran role. Obviously and that's probably what floridians realistically and You know you got plenty of firepower on that top line. So now you're going to have some gritty leadership on the bottom or fix perfect couple years of goaltender tendering. Yeah you're right florida's gonna be good I don't know be interesting to watch them next season. Actually i'm excited. I think i'm gonna watch panthers games. I think they're fun to watch. They aren't panther state. They definitely did make some moves here that that are gonna be willing. That are gonna be fun to watch so the next so that there's three goaltending contracts that we need to discuss and So the first one talk about your favorite team The new york rangers resigned Begin to a four year. Five point six five eight million dollar contracts. Begley think of that. I'm pretty happy. Former years of swiss turk indiana's always light him up for some reason So hope it remains the same. This could become a very very very very great deal or it could be a very very very bad deal because he has games where he plays phenomenal games. Or you're like who is. This is going to be the next fucking lundquist ear. Like what are we talking about. Our lung quizzes. Go don't even do. I know but like you know the guy filling issues. I guess i should say. I don't know i five point six for. I think this is right off his. Elc right yes. So that's a pretty big deal In four years. So you're locking in for a little bit so i hope it doesn't work out Could be good could be good. What do you think. I think it is a bit of a bet but but you know it's a bet that could work out even even better. I think for the for the rangers. You know just sirkin played really well a lot of time. Trust me. I had them in my fantasy team really well and then he doesn't his a couple of bad games but i don't know man overall especially with the rangers getting better this year. I think the young players will better. They slow down. I know but i'm saying like the younger players kako kind of a better year. Laugh adam fox couple cocka- this up aaron you know and if they get eichel yeah magic. We'll have cocco anymore. They went in have a lot of those young guys anymore. They wanted nickel. Maybe they don't have circuit if they want. I'm kidding would give. What's his name gore gift. Which apparently he wants out. Which makes sense. Because i think his trade values low right now. I mean he's not going to be a starter. He didn't get a lot of playing time. And is he a for contract or he's going to be up front contract season next season so like yeah his his. He's got his value. Is going to be very low but i wouldn't blame him for not wanting to be there. Yeah because you're just going to be riding the coattails of And you're not going to really get any playing time. And i think he could be a starter. Theoretically or french star. You know what. I mean like So then the next goals hunters ilias samsonov the capitals one year. Two million against good deal. It's fine but it's a shame till one year by two. Oh my god. I think it's still but since samsonov played well it makes sense though for for it to be so low it only being one year i was just reading the comments on one of one of the pages and someone comments. He's cute and then comes right. After goes i got hacked. But yeah so i think two million for a samsonov is good but it's a shame only one year but i do like the deal i like it. Yeah no i mean. It's not a bad deal again. It's only one year. So yeah let's see. Let's see what happens. i guess. what are they gonna do after. And the last one then Carter heart cart tender three. When i drafted him and i kept holding onto him hoping that he'd would be better until seven. Where then he he started shooting. The buddy morales are graham dropping. Somebody else pays them up version that we can the nisha the bet again one that week and then the next week any car heart baby. Yeah so he signed a three year by three point. Nine seven nine which is very specific. Bso basically a four million dollar for three years. I think it's a gamble as well. Yeah i mean he's really young and had one bad season so it's like how much can you say that he's not gonna be good anymore. You know Sophomore slump so to speak. So yeah you know. I definitely think he's gonna rebound this season. He's definitely going to revamp. Definitely especially with the change that really means they're decor bring in ryan you know. They got stronger on defense. So i mean he's definitely going to rebound a bit. How much does he rebound is he going to be. Is he going to be worth being a number one goal. Not number one. Goaltender in an organization is yet to be known. I guess because again he is so young. Yeah But it's not a terrible deal no point nine or whatever the fuck it is. That's not bad. that's not a bad deal at all. I kinda of like it especially for the potential that he does have so apple. form that contract. So those goals hunters being said damian. What do you think These recent goalie signings for elliot. Sarokin boggling leak. Yeah top five in the league so He definitely should get paid a million dollars. But i mean really doesn't allow you should be paid ten million dollars sarokin realistically in a perfect world based off his plate because he's going to be phenomenal but obviously that's not going to be good for the team so We're going to have to go a little bit lower. I don't think he should get paid. Which historic and has been paid. Only because stern has played a lot more than he has basically double a little bit over double. Nobody has played so. I don't think he's quite gonna hit five million dollars yet And i only think. I think that i think for like two or three seasons left so i think they're going to try to do a low contract that kind of matches those years in term only because You wanna get sarokin time to get better. Get more familiar on. Us is rather than it being russia and fully developed into the goaltender that we know he's going to be good. That freeze feels nicer or fridge. Drills nicer yes it does over the the fan that we can't have on us just taunting us. How unprofessional i was just trying to be so slick about it but listen we'll be okay. Yeah but no. I think kind of helps you get a price. I would like to see him get like the card heart deal considering like how many games have been played and the fact that he's not going to be a starter that's the main fact. He's not going to be a starter. Next season is still allama net. Could he be yes. I think so. I think he could play forty games and be okay But he's not because we still have realm off So i i would love to see like a matching to varlamov contract. Two to three years. I think he has left hopefully formal. Maybe a little less informal for me. That would be perfect. Three point five the beautiful while the thinking since he's going to lee kisha at least get four point five for three years or two years. Whatever whatever now now i don't think he's top now obviously in the future he will be tough off so he needs to get his little boy contract where he gets his big one a little boy contract you know. He has to get his His his welcoming welcoming contract before he gets his payday. Yeah So why not wrap it up but you know because we still got a little bit to discuss. But why don't we Get into our questions. Yeah so five questions for each other about general. Nhl thingamajig so think of yeah. So do you want to yeah. I'll start right right. So i went with conducts win for the first one i did i did because i want to keep it a little closer to home here Pederson close to the home of my heart. The home of your heart so allies petterson's been in the news this week. He added swedish right swedish interview. That got translated over into english Maybe we could go over it now. They want wanna go very later. I don't know But basically in his comments he He said that he got the quote. Here yeah read it for three or us that way. I don't basically well. He was home ahead and gauche the negotiations right now. The asians do all the talking. They just let him know what's up They both want to come to an agreement. They're not in it right now. They're happy to find the solution. He's not worried that they're going to get it done so on. What kind of deal he preferred. I wanna say they're in vancouver now. But i also wanna play for team that's winning and has the chance to go far into the playoffs. Every year i feel like we've got a chance to do that next year if we have that chance with my next when my next deal expires. I don't know. I just wanna play where. There's a chance of winning and quote. There's nothing Sorry no no finish. Sorry so my question is if you're jim benning and you wake up and you read that quote like what is your focus. Now what are you doing. Like i don't wanna say let's train them right now but if you were to trade him right now what are you looking for. But also at the same time if you're not looking for a trade what is kind of like your plan with them if that makes sense a lot there but like what's your plan with allies pederson at this point so the way i see it. You're not looking for trade. you can't pedersen's the best player on the hands down a thousand percent best player on the team. And i've said it before i think top fifteen the league like he's up there you know especially like ross skill wise now. What i'm doing. If i'm betting assigned through three year deal right or a try to get three or build on and then continue to like do what he did. This offseason be aggressive in order to create a team. That's contender. if after the season. nothing works out. then i would trade Tyler myers out attempt to get six million off the cap i would try to trade tanner pearson get three point. Seven off the cap or three point. Five three point two whatever it is gonna create more cast based assigned actual good contracts because tucker pullman isn't going to get it done i mean that's i think it's a service station came from for ep. Yeah i think. I think it's better conversation. I think it's better d. corden. Last year i do especially oli levy probably going to be playing like full. Nhl minutes and seeing what jalen chatfield. He's not going to be playing full-time. Nhl minutes but you know. I don't know. I mean to get connor. Garland that's again. I've spoken about before huge upgrades. The forward core for records nuts goes take another bringing halack goaltending a solid. Just the defense. If oliver ackermann larson who's apparently sepedi if he can bounce back. Jim benning looks like a genius. If all recommend larsen plays top. Four defenceman yeah. He'll be a little bit overpaid but fuck it like then. This team has a good shot of going to the playoffs. And if this goes in the playoffs and say they face against like Say they face off against like in edmonton. I think they could take him. I do think edmonton is worth cordless. I'll say that right now. So if i'm betting. I'm not trading pd. I'm not looking to because again. He's the face of the franchise just did a lot of spit. Faint face of the franchise. So yeah i'm not trading. Pd make sense makes us. I probably wouldn't do that either. J. t. but other to say there. I like it Hopefully they do do well. This season 'cause. I don't wanna see pedia man i would. I texted you. i would kill myself. he left. Yeah i mean like you don't wanna hear that from your star. I also but i also expect his. I respect it because you know i can't even lie and this is the last thing that i'll say on last tangent go off of its twitter going off about it. Some people were pissed at him. I can't blame him. I mean like. I don't blame him at all. I wanna fuck him win. I know but like there's like a. There's like a nhl answer and yeah. We're trying to show answers here. And i'd prefer that like not bring up bad blood but i prefer this over john. Taveras situation true. You know he's letting us know. He said he wants to be makeover now articles the contract will be done. Hopefully three years maybe four. If we're lucky right then see where we're at then evaluate. Then that's how i. I'm pretty sure most contract negotiations go you know. So it's like he's being on the fans from the media and i have nothing but respect for it. I kind of do respect out of the been more so fuck all the cops fans on twitter saying we ask like. He posted a picture. Like say you're yesterday. The comments on fucking annoying is how they were like cool. Repeating steamy coober. That's fucking annoying. I wanna smack everybody. If people were calm posts. And i'd be pretty best anyway all right so let me give you a question for you. So this is kind of a big. I did a lotta general. My honors wanted down low. I think it's four thousand v one so anyway is carolina playoff team. And did they take set back this year. Yeah their playoff team They definitely did take a step back. i mean certain moves can pay off with like good like i i. It pays say. But tony d like yeah. I'm like i don't want it to work out. I don't you know what i mean. But you know. He was playing phenomenal hockey before. He's not playing so it's like you know it could. It could work out really. Well i mean they. They made a couple other sundays. I'm trying to bring up more of their stuff right now but You know they you know. They changed their goaltending. Obviously it's not an adult traffic anymore. Yeah that's that's my big thing like. They take their future. Their future definitely doesn't look as promising dead before I think they kind of went into a desperation. Like let's win now which make desperate moves and hope they pan out but i definitely do think they are playoff team again. I mean i think they have plenty of youth that's going to carry that Special cov turbine. Those guys nash. us. So i it's still. It's still a team. it's i don't know. I i think they definitely did take back. I'm sorry that and indulge victory. It's still boggles eight. Yeah i mean it doesn't make sense bad. How do you spend a second on this guy. How do you develop him for years. Have like talent that could technically be tough live in the league and then fucking just give up on him like that and go for like What ranta like. Yeah and daybreak independent. I think it was just tampering purnea. Who who very they moved. They moved into the devils. Will they lost doggy hamilton. That was the thing for me. I'm elliot ethan bear. I do like embarrassing is good. Was he twenty three hundred doug hamilton now so but the addition of him and unfortunately tony dangelo angelo. Tony dangelo. I like i said i. It's unfortunate. but he's a good hockey shit but yeah he's a good hockey player and he does put up a lot of points for teen. That's already offensive minded. So they're going to be lighting it up. They're going to be lighting it up a lot and i think they be good this season playoff team for sure. All right cool. So you mentioned earlier about the oilers. How if they knox would verse off against them day would absolutely dismantle and that's because of the the bottom and words in my mouth. I didn't dismantle them. I said they would win. 'cause they had quite the debacle this season. I think we can agree. And they have like a mounting cap hit issue. What would you do now like this off season. Still to improve their chances and like any big trae oilers. Yeah any any big move that you would make any big name that you would trade just to give your team some life because at least we're having lasted in work out man. I i know this might take you a minute. And you have some up but Yeah like man. That's a rough one because he questioned sorry because no. It's okay because they did. You know they brought in on zach hyman right. He's good. They brought him warren fogel. I thought you know. I think the additions of duncan keith. And cody cc set them back a lot I also think. I don't know if bussard line lineup. I don't know who steps in the bottom. Perr chris. russell isn't the best defenseman and their goaltending. Such a fucking problem. I mean they might they. Mike smith and mikko koskinen. I mean the biggest thing. I also don't think cloth gown cleft bounds gonna play at the season. But so i was. I was listening to something. And they were saying that. Connor mcdavid zach hyman. Excuse me Leon seidel ryan uson hopkins and darnell nurse. That's probably gonna be their first power play right. That's half of their cat literally half of their cap space in five players. That's that's unheard of like. I think they fucked themselves. This off season At least you know. I mean maybe they can play really well. I mean if jesse kyle. Yamamoto can perform well. So if there's a trade or if there's like a move that you're going for you're looking goaltending or obviously you need gold. Under goaltender. I think is the problem right but they resigned. Mike smith for trade koskinen but but for what. And who do you get mean. The goaltending carousels already sorted. I mean i think that this team that they go into the season with an matter of they're they're gonna try. The approach of we can score more goals than you or mcdavid. I mean they can theoretically is thing. Survive david god forbid gets injured. They sold dry seidel goalscorer in the league. But i mean like a what what mcdavid had like. Four point producer may contributed fifty percent of their goals last season. Or something like that like you know. You're putting a lot of stock in like. I mentioned those five players who are who have the cash basis allocated towards so. I don't really. I don't really think there's a move that they can make this off season but sia so cool so my question for you question number. Two what contract to do think Get after his supposed. Declining of a seven year or eight year by nine million contract. Yeah i think he's gonna go way short. I think it's going to be. I don't know how old he is. I think he's a bit older. He's twenty four. I think again. He's a bit older for a. You know a guy. is probably. Let's imagine two years for him to be a two or three. So i think he's gonna sign us low term deal. Let's say three or four hundred range He's gonna wanna get paid he's gonna want a it'd probably be. Oh sorry continue. Isu the conversation. Sorry oh yeah yeah no. It's fine. I mean i wanted to mention too because i wanna make sure i'm not shot. I mean i think they said that he has a ten million dollar deal setup with russia right now all under wraps one year like ten million dollars. Yeah i mean that's rumored probably true now. This is putin's team now. The question is does he wanna play in russia or does he want to stay. Here will apparently said by september. I if it doesn't get signed with the wild and he's out yeah yeah that'd be the biggest travesty for the fucking wild to not do which is why i think they're gonna just give into the term because they definitely want to him longer time seven or eight years nine years they obviously want to because they wanna get him locked in the lower av which makes sense but like we're talking about a guy who wanna call her he can easily become your number one guy not only won the called her but change. The fucking team changed team and also like i don't want to say that he's going to be on. The level of the guys are making like ten mil but like he's gonna be worth it. I think he's going to be worth it. You're going longer term with capris. Albanians go higher than i million well but but again he wants lower term because he probably wants the option to leave realistic though he doesn't wanna play for the wild. Let's mean let's be real at this point that no long-term deal and offer him nine million dollars he doesn't wanna play there for forever so he will only report because capris and his camp say they haven't reached out to him since april which so there there's conflicting conflict because they're saying they did. They're saying they did so. It's becoming like and honestly. I would air to believe the wild more than i would believe them. Considering what's coming out about like a deal with the russian team deal with this and you know i for some reason i wanna believe wild more than him there now which doesn't really make a difference. I fucking believe anybody. But i mean i. I would like to think that the wild aren't just giving up on their number one talent right away so i would like to believe that. They're not again. I think it's a four year deal. It's probably gonna term. I mean the number might come down from like nine ten million it. Probably it'd be like eight million and they'll probably want three or four years. Whatever it is that takes them to a ufa and he's just gonna leave the team so actually just looked it up so he's usa in three years so it's going to be three or four year deal and let's say eight million dollars because it can be a little bit of a shorter term. I was thinking. I was thinking Three years at nine point five yet. Because i think he's going to really i think he's really force their hand which then it makes sense but then at that point and it's like the water like all right. Are we going to get into this guy. Well i mean. I would you and i would. I think that's the right move on site. He was near point per game. Yeah near point per game. He literally team exciting to watch. It's a tough situation because it's like what kind of example is that going to set for the rest of the team. Not that they all have the fucking power that he does. I don't think the rest of the team is a bunch of caprice. Don't have a lot of team isn't a bunch of capri solves. But it's like. I mean i wouldn't be. I wouldn't be thrilled to stand next to this guy a like. I feel like it's going to be kind of like a detriment to that not a detriments to the team. It's hard to explain. I don't know how to put it into words right now. I'm trying to figure it out. It's like okay so this guy can just bully you guys into making pay however much money off of one season and then me who. I've been here for eight years granite. They're not putting out the production that he is or had the ceiling that he does. But like i feel like other players aren't gonna respect to caprice obvious as much and they're not also not gonna respect ownership as much because there's willing to give into a guy who's been your one year. I feel like that might call some turmoil if they go ahead and do that if the wild around say. Hey listen we're committing to you guys in the locker room. We're going to do everything that we can. Obviously losing caprice. Aw is a big fucking deal. But i mean i don't know it's a double edged sword. I feel like for the wild if they do it if they don't yo- so it's just crazy to me because then in capris is you've uf a year the buyout for parisa and suitor is fourteen. Point seven million that such a hindrance on the cat between so that you yeah minnesota wild got a lot of shit to figure out. Is bill guaranteed. Gm bulgaria He's got a lotta shit to figure out. Hopefully they got capris of. I see him here. I don't wanna see him. Don't want one hundred percent. He's so fun to watch. I'll watch it would be. It would be bad for league if caprice left. I think is going to be tough deal to get done. I hope it does give him what he wants. The same thing as pd. Give them whatever the fuck you wants. You know what. I mean i know. But that's that's a superstar. The team you know you need to get them signed free then you build the team better. So when he is in his. Ufa year he'll want to resign true. all right. all right Oh my question right all right so number. Three which team this off season do you think. Made the most moves to improve. It was the most improved team going into next season. Sorry i was saying a lot to say a little. Oh wow lot teams of. Yeah I don't know. I mean this is a very Biased to me. Like i wanna to stay with a lot better than they did they really. I mean it's kind of like again. We keep saying the soda. Feel like but like it's like a bet on. Aol and they were able to do a lot of contracts with ideal so they freed up some space themselves. And you know it's kind of a bet. So i agree with you. I think there definitely are one of the teams that were like the best to improve. Yeah connor mcdavid co whoa counter. Garland's that was a freudian slip. No yeah connor garland the wreck larcenies better than alex adler jason dickinson too. I think they're pretty flush thing that devils i've gotten better W hamilton signings really good. They all signed. Jonathan bernier hopes. Add some stability to the back in and they resigned. Eager sure ghana vich An an sow shot. Did you guys treat schmidt yet. Yes or a third. I'm sorry. I forgot i forgot. Yeah i remember that now. So i don't know i mean i think the i think the devils like i really liked the devils the crushing odor I don't want to press the button right now. I'm lazy heats getting to me. Yeah i mean those are pretty cheap. I don't really have many winners. The blackhawks i think. Unfortunately i think the marc andre fleury really helped them out a lot. I don't i. Don't i mean the says jones thing though i don't know i mean it's still definitely a top defenceman. And he's still a top focused. I don't know yeah. But i mean he's not a though focus is helping you today not not those length of fucking jones and again. They're thinking that this is like patties one of his last couple of seasons. I think today's one of his last couple seasons. So it's like you're just going all in for today and obviously if it doesn't work out doesn't work out but i think they're going all in just right now we're weird thing to say but i also think columbus got better in the sense that they got a lot of young players. A lot of draft picks. I think looks better you know. The outlook does better overall. They're going to have another couple years shit. Hopefully in the future they can really You know yet. They can boost it up so yep so with the talks. Have been a jab being rumored in buffalo trade. Do you think buffalo would allow and be part of the package or do you think they would need something else. i mean. obviously they need more than just a job. I mean in the sense of woods have been at jabalya Part of the trade or not because a lot of people are saying he would be so. I actually was on twitter. And i saw something interesting. Data guy tweeted saying If savannah job is really a part of this trade to make it happen to it. Do we need to be a third team involved. So whether that means i i would assume what he meant by that. It's been a jab going to another team and then another prospect going to buffalo. Yeah definitely i would assume that'd be the right ago and that made the most sense for me. yeah and i would also make the most sense for wise taking so long. Because i mean if they were able to get a deal done just between the two of them. I feel like it could have gotten done by now. Yeah because how much can you talk you know. Like how much can you say the same shit over and over again before like you got just stop talking to each other so definitely inclines me to believe that. There's a thirteen about the islanders. Maybe that's why they're not getting obviously joking. But you know maybe there is a third team involved in these conversations. But i think savannah jab. Obviously the rangers are going to give up a lot. More than just maybe cocco maybe another prospect and then a couple of picks on top of that but to be honest with you and this might sound shot. But like i would not be surprised. If eichel doesn't get moved this off season. I i was going to be my original question to you. I wouldn't be surprised if i call does not get moved. I would see the entire roster getting move before eichel gets just because of the cap how difficult it is to move and then obviously the price you're paying to pay ten million dollars to a guy who's injured so what so you mentioned a third team right. Yeah me one second. What do you think Talkback i'm looking for their team. Okay maybe zibanejad then goes to the kings turcott goes to turkey or maybe rasmus. Campari and it killed. Thomas goto the buffalo sabres. I mean they have a bunch of center prospects. I'm looking at their top. Ten prospects are now five in the centers a lot of sense because again their team to have some space. And they're trying to not rush there rebuild but they're like getting older players and they're getting better so it's like maybe he's Who's like twenty eight or twenty nine. You can go to the kings then you give up rasmus. Campari and to kill thomas. I have another seven eight seasons of. Yeah you're not getting all in player not getting ovechkin. Yeah and by the time by field and turcott come in been dragging me your third line center and you know you're on the talent of his career. He's still gonna be good. I it's i. I honestly think if it deals on a three three person thing or would have to be at this point only because of the space and the fucking price of him and you're right. If something would have been done it would have been done. It would have been done by now. The teams are really holding out hoping buffalo lowers their lowers. What they're what they have to do if that's not being talked i. It's so confusing. It's so like you're so in the dark but yeah the kings make a lot of sense. There's a long seems accent. Any team with like a deep prospect pool makes sense and andrew. That's why i really wants. Bring up kings. Make a lot of sense though. That definitely is a team that could potentially be part. I like that. I like that. One dow danish number four for me. Do you genuinely believe that alexander ovechkin can break the gold a two hundred percent hundred percent. I will i think that he can. It's like thirty four goals that season for four more or less five i. He's got forty five for a couple of them and then you're really five goal as painful seasons. Now yeah over. You're probably talked them. Definitely imagined he's like four short wall heap he's played in. I think two lockouts or warm out and then shortened seasons due to injuries and everything the cova season i imagine it comes down to like five goals. And you're like covert never happened. Lovie berry hokey playing. What's going to happen and breaks it unless he's only putting up then tangles game in the last two years contract. He's gonna keep playing until he breaks. It is he. It'd be like a yager play until he's fifty but this time the an an play until he wins are until he gets the record on a percent and there will be a team. The fucking does it because whether or not he's actually helping your team he's probably going to be putting asses in seats. Yes one hundred percent even fifty. You know i yes. Especially i do have one hundred percent. I think that's actually solid. I think if there's a line for that. I was one of the one hundred fifty something goals. Yeah has at least five years left. He's got five years. Yeah i think he can all right. I got almost no doubt in my mind when i guess so. Well yeah for me. At least the. I'm lovie believer So my fourth question this style question so maybe loaded for you. What concerns you the most about the islanders going into the season. We don't know what the team looks like. That's number one but number two realistically because of what we can assume. It looks like I actually while we were recording. I saw something. I says as ajax likely going to be back on a team. So that's could he be sick as replacement or is he going to be achieved contract that they're just kind of on the waiver wire basically just in case. I need them anyway. I think the main concern would be defense. We don't really have a nick lady replacement Is robin silo. Going to be the replacement it could be. He's going to be really really really young. Or what would i do probably moved ops. And up to the second pair and have dobson mayfield as a second pair and solo play with green But i don't like that you know. I hope they make a deal. That brings in another defenseman more than i would like afford. So yeah i would say defense concerns me the most right now and but we play really good defensive system so maybe a guy like sallow playing olympic Yeah yeah i mean they make our fucking goaltenders. I mean we have like a nine million fucking let's say was at nine twenty. Save percentage goaltender night. twenty two. i think of our lease numbers were so we have a good team. We have a good defensive system so maybe solo could just fill the role and then maybe dopson plays a more important role next season. I think that's definitely a possibility. But i would feel more comfortable. If they got another defenseman. Defense these scare because a lot less la loaded question than i thought. Maybe i took an easy route. Because i feel. I think it's fair though. I mean i defense. What's that worried about offense. I mean if we if we have lee bars l. palmeri top line. I'm not scared. Yeah i they're like. I saw a tweet and i didn't check it. I didn't so i don't know the truth behind it. But there was five. Instances or six instances of Ah bars paul mary. Being on the ice together and for them turned into goals. And there was a playoff times so obviously. You're playing a heightened game. Obviously that might not and regular season to being every single time these fucking dues touchy ice together. You know score. But i'm not scared. I'm not scared of mary's game. I think palmeiras really good still. And i think with lee rather than fucking leo calmer of i think the voice gonna put us can put some goals and i think you have plenty of youth and i room that you signed paul. Mary's rumor that you signed says he says it's rumored that you signed parisa peres as an easy upgrade for third line parisi jean-gabriel paseo oliver washroom at the very least. That's a scoring third lions. Yeah definitely and you know line. Obviously we have a whole. Maybe walter moves up maybe bring in somebody else would third line or maybe it's colorado unfortunately because please good defensive game which is our mantra so i'm not really worried offensively. It's all defense. I'm worried about. Because i think it's just gonna become too young mayfield is very inconsistent season. I'm kind of blinded by his playoff. Snipe his snipe. I'm blind by that. No but he played phenomenal in the play saw. I'm kind of blinded by his play there. I hated him in the regular season. I was ready to literally just wave him and never see him again. So i mean obviously we're going to get back to that in a regular season and then you're playing with dobson who is consistent but has bad times at the same time so it's like you know that's a very unfair second pairing in my opinion and would they have to right handed defenseman of the same pair. They're both right handed. I didn't even know that to be honest with you. I don't know too much about solid. That's the only problem i know. Mayfield obviously but oh you said mayfield dobson. Oh yeah yes he's to me. I don't follow but yeah no you're right actually now. I'm thinking about adoption being on a second and third pair well mayfield's on a second pair now south some really. Yeah super weird outta and so it was. It was working in kind of not really. I put them on the second pair. Well you know trot season he hates. Playing the fucking youngsters trots. Trots is goaded atrocities. Likely you're actually under the age of twenty five so you really cannot play. You can't rent a car new york state. You should not be playing on my hand actually play on my team so i don't know what you're doing but that's enough for that. 'cause i kind of tracking tucson now my fifth question. I don't know. I kinda hope you have an interesting answer for this one. It could be very easy. It could be very. I can make it difficult. I hope you make it difficult. So who coming out of the top five. This season straffed are you. The most excited for the sabres empowers to start my do the crack mapra nears the ducks matache. The devils hughes and the jackets johnson. Who are you most excited for. I don't want to say just next season. But like i guess i guess so because a lot of them probably aren't even gonna play next. Well i think like three of them are paying michigan next year. Exactly so it's like four. No i'm sorry. Four of them are playing. So it's like you can't really excited for next season. So i guess let's say for their career. It could go the easy answer. Never though this is no no. No ken johnson. Ken johnson and johnson without a like. I guess technically fell right. No he was projected at ninth or something because a lot of people are saying the cops. We're going to get them if they cut the the pick but Yes can johnson. I would say. I'm most excited for overall in his career He's probably wing. Nhl level but his pure offenses skills. Nuts it's out of this world Washing highlights of him. It's nuts Get he cracked guys crazy. pure offenses skill other present. Probably most excited for luke to see what he can do In jersey especially jack hughes there Luke uses a pretty mobile defense. When i think he's a little bit more risk taker than empower. Oh empower looks you know. He's he's gonna be a good defense. In no doubt in the lee however i think power is going to be just more of a Like a solid top four defenceman. That's like his ceiling. Maybe his That not ceiling has floor and maybe like around a ceiling as well. I think lucas has potential to tom. Be everywhere between like top. Four or top parent is the last name you know. We'll know exactly. Yeah so. I think between ken johnson look on pretty Yeah i'm really that luke. Us went where he went. So i think if i had to answer i wish it went to anaheim or something deci. Both hughes aren't on the same fucking team. But i also say outside of the top five. Really cypher william mechlin apnea. It duty looks fucking cracked as well. i know that this wasn't part of the question but i'm also really excited For carson kumons on blue jackets Defense twenty fifth overall. I remember. I liked his game a lot when we did. Our mock draft thing happened like eighteen. Seventeen raft Did they did. They have three picks right. I think so. I mean if a fucking hit at least onto faulk. So they had so. They cold cylinder for the jones. Yes whole cylinder cam johnson. And then Coursing cool moments. So yeah i mean that's a solid trafford there so fucking sick. oh see. those are probably who. I'm most excited for So my fifth question my last one. Do you see an adventure. Cain trade working out since many players don't want him on the team next year and are very pissed off that he that he might be now to be honest. Though i bearing anything else comes out of the investigation comes out that yet. He did gamble On games than he's not playing. But i would find it hard to believe if the facts they remain the same that He's gonna play on the sharks next season. I know a lot of players. Don't want him to play. I just feel like they have so much stock in him and so much pay to him like let me honestly look up his contract only because i just want to know what is it like five or something so actually if we go to the calendar too right. Yeah so i'm going to go to cap friendly. Just bear with me. one moment. i know this is like a we do this question on the fly so kane benke going. I'm filling up of indicate gain more about gambling. Bad evanger can't why can't i fucking. Oh here we go way oboe explicit content so yes so he's making seven million dollars so yeah and there's one two three four years left where the mtc he would technically the wave it but then again nobody on the team wants you to play so. I think you'd be more likely if there's a team that really wants to So let's say that. They bought him outright. The cost calculations remaining four out the buyout length becomes eight years than the buyout cost. Each year would be just shy of two million does year for eight years. I don't see the sharks doing that. And i don't see them benching seven million dollars a year. Yeah so i would unfortunately ford the sharks sake say that he would play on the team next season. But i don't think a deal gets done either because dwindling play a the situation that's going on and yeah no. He's he doesn't get dealt islanders. The best season of his career. Yo take him away from close to good back on track but back then he then he has foxwoods right there. Jake's fifty-eight walkers could've hit jason. He would win fifty eight playing blackjack in their next fucking vander chain. Now it'd be so gets a facetime call from his wife. You seem flip this phone. All right let me stop having jokes about soon-to-be-ex-wife yummy salad. Okay okay. nothing's facts right now. Vander kings going load. I'm proud of that. Where where's the button. I forgot a a radically just to get that. One thousand yeah. We have a clip that clip that instagram clip. That's clip it rick. We don't have someone. We'll have someone named rick here because he would probably be dying of heat stroke be calling an ambulance for rick. I'm ready calling myself to be honest. I really think. I almost passed out at one point. the beer starting to get to me but i think it's also the heat into me one hundred percent of the fact that i literally just had that sandwich little sandwiches i i had so i two pieces of italian hero and a fried sweet potato tempera. Since this morning. I like seven in the morning so things are looking bleak for the boy right now in this heat. I wish you guys can experience that. If i guess i would say. It's over ninety degrees in this room right now. It's gotta be about one hundred. I would say it's close right has to be like i don't want to be dramatic and i don't know with because there's nothing flowing right now but i wouldn't be doing now just trying to be the tiniest bit of breeze it's tiny falcon handlooms when we have the mini oven. Right there the pc. So it's easily one hundred degrees in this house now. Yeah so. I think we're gonna head out. Yeah i think we're done fouls on instagram. The clapper report. The l. a. p. p. e. r. e. prt or nine one one class where probably gonna find passed out. Yeah yeah if this episode doesn't make it up hope somebody finds this. Sd card and found footage. Horror movie to be on her patriot. Patriots right imagine. We had a fucking video camera right now. Though i wouldn't post it would delete you say oh you know what the camera malfunction because to do any who yeah. Let's wrap this up. Yeah yeah You guys can follow us on. Instagram shocked that he was able to get that out under this cognitive cognitive state that we're both good. You can find. Every saturday usually sometimes later because conflict of schedules But you can always find us on the weekends. Stay tuned to us on instagram again. And you'll know when we delay or whenever something's coming out we really appreciate the loving getting. I think we just cross like five hundred dollars through. So yeah we just cross five hundred dollars so love israel. You guys are phenomenal. Appreciate it man. i'm really. I'm fine with this I think we definitely took a bunch of strides here in We're having a lot of fun. I hope you have listening.

Okay you want to get to hockey all right. Justin cry when i say no. You didn't say anything okay. I was thinking about something right. Sorry yeah yeah so moving onto some hockey. No confirmation yet. but i if if we're right There's a certain timetable on the cock- to nemi deal with The hurricanes We're doing completely. we're gonna break his back in. Sorry i i just had to say all right so we're going to take back in So yeah anyway. A he offer sheet still out there a seems as though the are not going to accept it so it's not official yet but i think it's a week now. Yeah i think it's been a week. I think he's gonna be there. I think he's gonna be on the On the on the hurricane so What what do you want. What do you have for us on this anything. No i mean is it just looks like the hurricanes had a second line center and the canadians have six million second-line. Yeah the second line center. Twenty years old six million dollars. Ooh but then they have a canadians. Have jake evans. So i don't know whether the comparison is i mean you know if jonathan dran does come back and and hopefully he does hopefully all right now yeah. Maybe we'll be second-line center. He said that he would be able to. I think we were talking about in the last episode. But who knows if he actually can you know. I mean philly denault one at a lot of money for a while years. But i mean he was solid choice for the canadians. So on cnn. I know it's it's a big loss. It's big loss. We'll get into it in our rankings of the atlantic division. Talk more about it which were shirted trigger some canadians fans. 'cause you guys have been all over social media. Oh my god. I am one of the more than more. Oh polarizing fan base. Oh man i think you gather up there with maple leaf fin hate recently recently canadian fan hate than a maple leaf. You make the cup you know you get a couple more fans fan as now. Maybe not but anyway moving along here. I don't think we've mentioned as last episode if we did you know we love him. Caprice off we got a little bit of an update. Correal grill Looks like russia is out of the picture. It looks like he is going to stay with the the wild Kinda like we expected this time around. The one year player is expecting a five year contract at nine million dollars. Av you know. He didn't win the calder. Neither win the calder. Near point per game near point per game nine million dollars for five years and steep speak deal. It's a steep deal. I mean maybe towards the end of it it's not gonna look that bad 'cause captured start increase soon blights And i don't expect them to really take a downturn. I think he's he might have a little bit of a slump because point per game. I don't i i hope he can keep that up. You know maybe he regresses just a little bit. You know this upcoming season. But i definitely think that he keep probably can play that nine million dollar contract all three to five years. But i can't believe that an organization. Ahl getting strong arm by a one year vet at this point while so my thing is well. there's two things with steel one. I think it's a deal that was necessary for the wild to make go no of course not especially considering how he changed the wild. He made them watchable which something that i didn't think was ever going to happen. Unfortunately but capris made the wild washable made them fun to watch because he took this whole team this whole culture on the team the whole fan base and said you know what i'm yours. We're in this together. Electrifying watcher. Let's not forget. Also he's a rookie but he's barely a rookie. You know what i mean. I mean he played in the cage l. for six years. That is kind of Over go that idea. He's in his prime right now. He did play for the big thing. That handicaps wild of this deal is at next year. They have like fourteen million or the next two years after the season. They've like fourteen million dead cat from the Suitor buyouts i think it's like four them over. How are they gonna add anybody. The like i mean there's gonna be noticed trade somebody then to like trade zuccarello contractor like i dunno. It's rough so the next two years after the season that they're gonna be screwed. You know Can be rough. So that's my big thing with contract but also like again. They they had to make this happen. You know can resolve had to be brought in The only saving grace is that marco rossi is going to be on any elsie. And he's supposed to be pretty good of the wildest here who knows. Maybe he'll be a good middlesex centre drum and i think not this next season i think matthew boldys coming in i think i think it's next season. I don't actually know. Because i know he was in college. Forgive me forgive me. Forgive me forgive me for you know So he's projected to be on the team this year. So i mean oh and rossi's not okay flip flops. Them i guess so. Yeah i mean who knows if the wild can actually do something in the central vision. We'll get to that in our central division episode potentially next week so i think it's a good deal. Yeah no i mean and should we good Moving along here. We got a bombshell today. We finally got some news. I mean i guess it was to be expected Bananas official the nhlpa. Any nhl come to terms and agree for nhl players to compete in the twenty two winter olympics in beijing. And i'm all for all four dude. I i'm since two thousand fourteen and i love it. I was actually seeing a social media. I mean it wasn't a lot of people it was probably about ten percent Were saying that they didn't like the idea of nhl players like they're like. Oh yeah i knew. He goes one to grow the game. But i don't think this is the way the do it. And i think that's fair like to say that i say that but i don't think. Nhl players playing in the olympics each just to grow the game. I think it's just like a former competition that like these players want. They want the liberty to play for their country and who the nhl to take that away. I mean i. I understand that contract allegations coming in in in play and stuff like that but i think it's only fair for these players to be able to do that see. I don't think it's a way to grow the game right now because the nhl and the olympics don't make it a way to grow the game. I think there is potential for them to you know may more like in-depth coverage about it like you know what i mean something like that there. There is potential to grow the game from that. So like like. I mean for me. At least i don't i know. A lot of people watched the olympics. Who don't usually like sports. But i don't typically wash olympics. Yeah i i definitely did this year like i honestly forgot the olympics where. I lost some volleyball. 'cause i think volleyball's cool but yeah we know. Okay why because i like haiku. All right. I don't usually like anime but that was pretty k. You'd never see column. Put me onto that really yeah. It's a some anime about this like high school volleyball high school volleyball team. This kid was like a midget. Oh that was kind of offensive here. We'll shortage he's like five two or something and volleyball. You won't be like six three. Yeah yeah of course. And he's like a spyker. The kid can jump out like that and like it's like that it's not. It's actually a good show any who that's the only thing i really watch volleyball. I watched some of the I watch like some simone biles like whatever like. There's a highlight reel version. I have no clue anything about gymnastics. Carville barely fucked. They do but the fact that a person can go from the floor to let like what feels like ten feet in the air and like her feet and feet in the air Or her bottom of her head. Ten feet up in the even higher i. It's absolutely insane. Like blows my mind what they're able to do especially her to. He's insane but anyway back to hockey. I'm lit dude. I went to see and just meet unite before spit on ideas as to what the line collect like like we were talking about team. Canada and team canada can look like versus china like retirement on monday. Oh yeah but with over real quick. Just team china on meet tim. China team canada now through their top line. What did you say it was. It was like cardo david. Mackinnon dot is a top line. Built for like. I don't know like i. I think anybody made a super team. That's the super team will. Then you look at the fourth line on the fourth line from the athletic had. John's varas rhino riley and mitch martyr as the fourth four fourth. Line line the third line had barzel had bars l. playing without radim point and mark stone. Yeah like why. that's about him. Six of mark stone radim point matthew barzel. Who do we say we said Riley ball then the second brad marchand salt crosby. Patrice berge on the extras here. The extra have. I don't agree with one of the english. be bow. wherever. But sean syria and mark sharply those are extras. That's nuts. mark shy fli as an extra on his canadian squad. And i think harry trott's is either the head coach or the assistant head coach to bro. I'm team usa. Till i die of course but well especially when you have a first line of mass patti austin matthews and patrick kane's three which have charges borrow against them and their careers. So i mean that is pretty american of them representing representing for sure. Yeah but the goaltending for the usa is what i want to talk about. Most yeah connor. Halbrook john gibson thatcher dump now that is a trio that is a brick wall candidates. Goaltending quite honestly. There's a much canadian goaltenders who are at the top. I mean you have cary price. Marc andre fleury and jordan bennington. Well i would say flurry and bidding ten would probably go more than per price. Yeah i mean. I'm not a huge fan of bennington but I really like Flurry i think flurries still at the top. So flurry further is going to be tough to play against but I think that jon gibson and faulk in hello book playing in front of that. Oh my god national snatcher. Us extra defensemen quinn hughes patriots extras. Yeah so what are. What are we on the us team. So i'll read off quick. Yeah so last ready. Awesome patrick kane. Nice topline yeah mac. Chuck jack eichel asks. Bring kit stacked j. t. miller joe villes hebr brady chuck jake gansel dylan larkin in the brian. Ross yes see. The bottles loss lack the bottom six. Latin rock besser and ucla team. But any and johnny goudron and brock nelson as extras. Yeah then for defense ryan mcdonagh. Adam fox jacobs sleeve. Charlie mcevoy says jones. John carlson defense but bottom six group i think lacks especially compared to defense and goaltending. And that's what wednesday championships i think is solid solid. Yeah then i just wanna say a earliest pederson. First line for sweden so yeah. I'm excited to watch china. Put on a clinic on the us. Yeah hannah they're going to be running shit and gruber oxman. I feel bad. I mean we talked about the last episode but you yeah yeah but One thing. I wanted to note the nhl does hold the right to pull out of this at any time depending on health concerns with covert and all that Do think would feeling they would for breakout. Happens among the nhl. Or if they're you know come time for the olympics and there's like a new very i don't wanna like scare anything or four new. Yeah the world's coming to another that's going so it's like if things heighten and it's just too much of a risk i yeah i and i wouldn't blame the nhl. For that. i mean you have investors and you have owners that you need to protest. So i would totally understand and support the nhl and their decision to pull out. Maybe they put in that clause because they already know that they're going to pull out. They just wanted to look good and please see yeah but like i. I feel like that's a necessary. Call clause like i mean you know whatever oil hot with the i i hear you. I don't know i do like that though. I i feel like that's a i. I'm a little wary about how the olympics are going to go especially and again. I don't mean to be like a debbie downer but going into the fall and winter. I a little weary that they'll be build a really get things off the ground. But anyway i hope for the best. I really hope we get to see the fact that we could see that type of a matchup team. Canada versus team. Usa and what. We just discussed phenomenal. I must watch like on a percent glued to the score golden goal. He'll passenger george yesterday. Speaking international news. Canada won the The world's for for women's hockey beating the usa in ot decision. Murray felipe polian. I know how to give the correct pronunciation of her name. Yeah the cats and of canada sheehan snipers not beautiful snipe called it. she's pointing. She was like sorry celebrating but they called it off. They said no. No no keep playing. It was like thirty seconds later that they reviewed it and they did the buzzer she. It wasn't even like a controversial though. Hit like the right corner behind. The bounced on the goal line and bounced out beautiful. I was like shocked Not shop. I was like florida a shit. That was a snipe. Yeah i holy shit and yeah. We were watching the clip just before we started recording and it was like an awkward thirty seconds. And they're like what's going on because we just got word that go in. Yeah but of course adelaide. So the play stopped and usa had a chance at the end. I mean yeah. It was a good defensive. stop By canada there but the drama that would have had they got off that one t for goal imagine that and they have the call that offer the goal that was scored earlier. Do that would have been out of in a moment but beautiful congratulations to canada. And even to you guys in the us bringing home the silver right. So congratulations i agree. So what do we want to get into next. We wanted to the signings. Yeah yeah i mean there was a bunch of signings this past week so I guess we can run through this really quickly Blues they lock a home. Perico eight years six point five average. So what are we thinking. Here i liked the cockpit on nervous about the term. You know I'm pretty sure like twenty eight. Let me double check that. Really quick as twenty eight So complete thirty six six point five. I mean listen. I think it's gonna be good for a few years like really good for few years. Yeah i feel like it's like a good deal. Like i feel like it's not i mean it's no jones deal. Yeah they're not. They're not ridiculously overpaying. Obviously the terms a little higher than we probably would like But i feel like that's what you gotta do these days to keep term to keep the yellow and you know you gotta give them some time on their deals So it's definitely not a steel as far as contract wise but like. I'm not like i hate it. You know maybe towards the end but then again that becomes a contract. That's i don't wanna say easy. Move but like a two by six is hurry to move Especially for a player. The likes of calm perico or even fact of like that's probably gonna look like what like a four million dollar contract. Looks this year true. So at the end of it. I don't think it's. I don't think it's too much of a scare. Yeah and he's great. He's good so then we have the sabers signing two players to three years by two point. Five million each each We have casey middle set three years. Two point five million a year and henry yoki are three years at two point. Five million so middle stat. A little bit more than i know the other guy here. I think everybody does because people project middle south of calder winner over earliest patterson and that stupid of you think that while especially for planning on save considering middle asking me the new number one center there once i gets traded if he does will but even for second line guy two point. Five insane deal. Can you continue to produce with squad who knows what's going on there. But i mean he he. He's three years. He's he's obviously younger so he's probably that probably takes them to usa. I'm assuming i could be wrong I'm not because i don't know. Yeah i don't wanna i don't wanna firm either one near left on our fe or ufa contract so. I feel like this is necessary for his escape from the sabers. Because let's be real. That's what all these guys are trying to do. Just escape just live like elsie contracts. Here and then just go and find a new home On the deal it's easy. It's a lot of like leverage on like leverage for his neighbors. Honestly because i mean. I don't know what their caps situation looks like. But eh but if a if a bright mind if they figure some shit out they might be able to make solid moves in. I mean it's the sabre so. I don't want to hype them up. You know. i kind of hype them up last season and look what happened. Yeah but You know losing eichel is going to be tough but that's gonna phreatic cap space and they'll be able to make some moves i think. Yeah i mean currently they have. I believe twenty three million Dude incredible amount of space. And then you're going to free up eichel and that's even with jeff skinner's six years with nine million kyle okposo with two more years at six million. You know so So that would take him as on. Rfa which is Good for the sabres as both henry. Okay sorry henry. Yojiro also tastes as an our f. As well so He's only twenty hundred twenty two. I saudi saudi sabres and honestly poe cycle. I think they can do something. But it's the sabre so hold our butts next. I like just the a lot. The flyers lock in joel farabi. Yeah oil furby. Sorry six years. I five million a good deal. Great deals twenty-one steel awesome. He was living well. He's got to be their top scorer. Let's be real probably a couple of years. Yeah especially towards anna that deal so yeah. Absolute steal of a deal definitely next. Steve e. y. He just makes fucking deals bro. Steve why. I don't know why i think it might be his name. I'm like obsessed with him and all the deals that he makes Piece hines philippe hornak for three years. Four point av another steal another w is good I wouldn't say the. I think it's a good deal. I think it's a solid deal. Yeah i think it's just a w if i'm on instagram and i'm looking at puck going. That's all those fucking comments are on those w. w. stands for. Wait so yeah Yeah i like the olot on easily. Good solid defense in especially on the redwings which they need somebody to help more at cedar Because he's coming over. This year are supposed to come over which is pretty nice ability to the back end for years. And then our boy nicoletti on a second pairing. I know he's a. I don't know i think we're going to talk about the red wings later with our ranking so i have a little bit more about them later but i think they're gonna steps so great signing in my book last but not least certainly not least the senators they. They took a bath. They took a bath with drake battiston. Another six year contract this time coming in a little bit lower four point nine seven five brilliant brilliant steel so now i don't know aid all these teams that are waiting later. Their deals are looking a lot nicer than people was the first day rushing to sign the ills. Tasha goes So yeah no. This is beautiful contractors pedersen's contra six years by six point nine million matt. I cry nice. Oh i didn't even really realize that. Yeah but so you know. It's funny with seen bathrooms contract Being played out. Today you know brady Contract yes you wanna talk about the dude. So i saw a tweet. I screen shotted. Send it to you any gummy wondering what the is going on. Ready to cook cock cock. How do you say chuck chuck. I'm so bad with names. Do you are horrific with names. I'm her because you only watch islanders. True now apparently he wants to stay are so this is from Sean simpson from an. He goes and says that My sources tell me. Frustration has set in with them He's trying to stay positive but doesn't understand why it's taking so long. I asked what has been offered. And it was termed. They have not received a legitimate offer from the yet now. Is this a case. Where they're trying to figure out like a guy like bathurst and and all these other guys that they're trying to figure out and then assess it and realize okay. Can we go along with them. Can we go short term with him. Yeah i think that's the situation definitely but for that to not be clear with this camp exactly you need to be open with communication. It's like in a relationship with me very yeah. Exactly bring out the red flag. That's a red flag where the hurricane red flag relationship podcast here and we give you guys relationship tips. Have you seen the guy on talk He dresses like a frog and paints his face green. He's larry's he's he doesn't say anything that's ridiculous about it. The people are like. Oh yeah so are my mom. Did this and cycle does that make you feel you know. I didn't think about like thanks. Mister frog and it's just like what he didn't say no. That's exactly who we are for these these. Gm's you know the ropes from the sidelines players in the nhl. Yeah hundred percent. we know. We've negotiated multiple contract ourselves. I you know. I'm a player agent for myself. I mean you were at the beginning of the. The season at the beginning of the season is beginning of fun. We got a lot of practice. That way So no. I mean all jokes aside. That's not good from an organizational standpoint This could be some smoke. You know You know from the reporters a dry day trying to figure something out but nonetheless. I hope they figure things out and obviously with this deals signed. I think this just burden over the cap floor. This last deal So they have plenty of room so i'm sure they'll lock them up surely longtime You know term on that and I'll be right and senators land all be right at the capitol. Yeah yeah so I think that's what the news. I think we're gonna talk money. Four million cats space gas. So you know they'll lock them up for however long they need now. It is time. I've been waiting for this. Mommy for so damn joshua celani you'll see. I'm looking at their catherine sahar. Hey the islanders. Lula morello has finally released on these guys from his basement and has announced that they signed contracts. Final fucking lee on september. First we got four deals sign dotted. Holy fuck no i mean. I don't think it comes to any surprise at all. These guys did come back from day. One agency we knew they were going to be signed. It was just a matter of what it looked like in holy shit though i got to say i mean all these contacts i like him. You know I could see controversy in a couple of them but i love it. I'm so excited and Honestly type in has got me lit. So i guess i'll go through each of them. I'm going to go with the one. I don't like the the most i do. I still do the deal kalpa. Mary signed the deal for years. Five million dollars each year. So i saw a lot of controversy online seemed the garner a lot more of a attention conversation which i was very thankful because i'm glad i'm not alone in saying you know because you said to me too i like i was so blinded by the fact that we signed all these guys like you're talking about starting and i'm like dude. Listen i know so. I was essentially released contract a little bit. Cheaper cheap essential a little under a million dollars cheaper than it really wasn't he five. He was like is like five five six six hundred thousand dollars. Okay about fifty five hundred anyway. Complimentary for years five mil. I still like the deal and again to. He's only thirty years old. He played really well. Last season was different for him. He didn't shoot as much Especially in the regular season So he really didn't perform that well and he was playing on a struggling devils team before he got traded. He got traded to the islanders and once he got traded to the islanders they were also struggling then to you know they were battling the loss of lee they were trying to come back and things never quite clicked before the playoffs but holy shit when the playoffs clicked. Palmeri looked like himself. He looked better than himself to be honest with you and honestly i could care less if he doesn't do a thing in the regular season as long as they make the playoffs and he plays like he did this postseason. I'd be happy with it. And for five million dollars for a guy who's potentially going to plan our top wine. I'm in love with the deal. I love it For years i can see an argument for being too long but four years to me. I'm okay with it. You know. I'm okay with it. You plan for two years on that top line. probably maybe you start to lower him a little bit there. I mean we're paying five million dollars for a third liner already. So you know. I for a couple of their liners. So i don't hate it. I don't hate it well now. 'cause it's only patio bailey. I consider mother liner okay. Anyway so moving on quickly. Because i don't want to take too much time. I know always have like a fucking hour. Long islanders talk. So i'm going to speed it up Ilias sarokin. this is an ideal that i deal. I love the deal for the player. I don't like the deal for the sake of The fact we're paying nine million dollars now for goaltending so anyway sarokin three year deal. Four million dollars each Little more than i would've liked to see Only because again we already paying wlov like five. While it's the price you pay. When you got the william jennings trophy. Winners i mean. These guys are the best goaltender league and i was stamina. I will stand by. I will dial hill Depending on how the season goes though. Could we see a thing where they toronto varley Maybe we can speculate about this about this later. Maybe at the end of the season two depending on how it looks. I love sarokin. I love the way he plays. And the fact that shit's turk in who's like a full time starter. Four years at five point. Six five mil i deal. Because he's like full time guy so that that leads me to believe that sarokin is gonna start taking the throne like sooner than later. Varlamov tarasenko trade. Which would make sense for the blues realistically it would make sense of blues so who know you heard it here first. Latest breaking news her justin of the klopp report another deal. And i fucking love this man number. Fifty three cases zeke as six year deal. A lot of term. Apparently dog does to. The dog loves it. Two point five million dollars each year. Insane value. On av in my opinion granite. He's about him six forward he plays on our fourth line. So i understand that. A lot of people can bring two-point full moon doors for bottom bottom line gone should fuck up This guy scored in overtime winner in the playoffs. I would kiss him on the lips after that one. Just kidding paws office. Can i get into halio He can easily slide up to the To the top third line but hey we like him where he's at heart and soul kind of player he sought after in the market to he was offered five million dollars from siachen granny. Crazy seattle. Cracking doesn't know what the fuck they're doing in that crazy. But cases ezekiel is a five million dollar player in the eyes of other organizations and was other teams are looking for him. I think i again online date. They say everything every teams involved in a fucking player. But i think toronto is looking at zeke. As everybody liked him and he's a great player. He deserves the money so the fact that they got them for half that at two point. Five gr- great value now sixty six years. Yeah steep that is very steep. Hunter percents again. I i i keep going back to this defense. And maybe it's just me being an island fan here. Probably but i was saying this earlier about other teams to in in six years. What is two point. Five million dollars gonna look like. Is that going to be close to a veteran contract. You know and maybe his play doesn't stay the way that it does now. But he's a face off champion he he's great and the face off circle they roll has line all the time they start his line against other teams top lines in the playoffs. So we're not talking about just the fourth line guy and i love the deal. I think he's gone. I think he's gonna play the contract well and his quote that i might get tattooed on me. I'm going to die in islander. That's the way to put it number now just because the quote because you know what you think about it like five years ago four years ago players would never say anything like that about the islanders furniture. Never say a saying like that but the winning culture the family feel of the islanders is real and cases signing a six year deal at only two point five when he have got five million elsewhere. The is a true telling sign that the honors our winning team a winning culture. And they're buying in so put. I wish concert thought so. I love i love this deal Wanted to jump shot to winnipeg because he just wanted out which socks and also we could talk for the later but also what's his name just saying recently how he's like glad that he left honestly had are horrible contract. Loui eriksson right. He didn't say no. He didn't say he was glad he left. He was glad one hundred percent he was because he sucked. He sucked the whole. Listen louis all right my favorite. I forgot to write about that. Yeah the best contract. Anthony vivier three fucking years at four point one million dollars each year now again this like still contract the best value only twenty four years old has really found himself on the second line. The killer bees. They are not. They are sick And i'm excited for what's next with that line i mean whether or not bailey's on that next season i don't know but I still think there's room for grow growth especially in him. This season an eighty two game season. He was on pace for twenty six goals. I honestly think next season if he plays the way that he played in playoffs. He kind of did the same thing as before he dropped off in regular season. I could see him progressing to a thirty goal score this next upcoming season. The i could see that thirty plus. It's very exciting All these deals incredible to me. I love it. They basically have no space left so which begs the question of what's next because we do have a whole defense or missing a second line. Defenseman trayvon lama trailer lama of But it was confirmed that i saw the hammock. Getting back priest was confirmed that he's coming It's probably a contract He's usually good for twenty five goals. I think on this third line role. He's going to be super effective. And i think it's a great deal Michael collins zajac at the beginning of the beginning of the fa free agent like debacle here or the islanders It was rumored that they did sign but obviously was not announced. I really don't care for either to these players. I mean it'd be great for it'll be great for further at you know on the squad too much it's fine i are great What was interesting. Colton prego his deal with the blues. Signed the same day as the islanders announced all their deals. So i don't know if there's any like okay. We're organizing books. This is what was being talked about down off de both teams are lining their books. Four move. I don't know people were kind of saying islanders. Fans is delusional as canadians fans. It's getting bad so desperately habits when you have a good team. We're so desperate for moves now and signings. That were like well. You know what. It's like hong kong twitter terrible. It is now so it's getting rough. But anyway i'm good with the ford group as it is but if we add tarasenko and it's not i e price i'm okay with it We're gonna need free cap space. So i'm saying josh bailey. Bellows are favourites. Pick of some sorts. We bring tarasenko in a reduced salary. I love the deal. Gives us a more romo. Save some money on the bailey exchange there and maybe we can get like a two million dollar defensemen. I don't know whatever. I don't really know all the figures in my head right now Just imagine this a top six of lee oursel- and tarasenko second-line byu nelson then palmeira walsham. Now that to me. It's good team. Top six percent is an amazing six. In my opinion i again. I'm an advance. i know. I'm a little bit of a amazing is really good though. Yeah it's really good. I think it's great defensively. I'm still worried smashing. I hope he can impress in. Because if we can have ill see on that In defense appearing I think it's going to be great. But i don't see the islanders sticking with that though they're gonna want somebody who's like season guy who is proven course So i do expect another move to be brought in for a defenseman but overall i love every deal. That was signed. The future looks great. Forty one days until islander hockey baby lights. So as damian mentioned 'cause i completely forgot about this crack another four. Oh yeah there to the french shows one nine. Three loui are and i forgot. I forgot to talk. Yes because news again. Transit gonna amy again. Listen i thought how was funny. Quote from louis ericsson. You want it to press the button this. You're looking at the button So this is a quote from ericsson. I never wanted to give up. The connects knew. That the only thing i could do was being the ice rink show. Good mood try and train every day. It was as it was. I wanted to get away from this for a long time. There's nothing to complain about. But since my contract was so big it was difficult but of course it would have been fun if it had happened a few years ago. So why don't you try louis. Why didn't you try at all. I mean like. I'm sorry he was like he was the slowest person. Ice can never potter goal. He was mr empty net king. That's all he was only guy defensively. Very good defensive forward was but like. I'm sorry when you're getting outplayed by eighteen year. Olds like come on dude like you can't crack this roster who has sucked the past three years. I'm sorry it's more of an issue than your contract. One hundred percent. It's more of an issue than a contract and you got the benefit of the doubt. Listen i don't blame him for talking about it. Obviously he's gonna talk about it. And i don't hate louie a person i really don't i was like as a person he's always seemed like a genuine nice guy also feel bad for how much can fans ragged on him a like. You gotta you gotta play your part yes contract you gotta fill the shoes. Yeah but i understand. I mean when the pressure's on especially in a market like economics It definitely could be taxing affect your play So i think he was just venting Ten media which is always a bold move because you get mixed reactions you get people who feel sympathy people who feel the way that you do in your like all right so just not up and play no. He has cemetery. And the fact that like there was like fans who were like saying oh louie autograph and then like sanctions and it's like that's fucked up. Yeah like so anyway. That's my lyrics thing he's gone. I don't want to talk about one who i do. Want to talk about those silly particles and he's now on the move. He's fully vaccine ready to attack. The podfather has come into vancouver to terror on the likes of calgary edmonton bottle. This is awesome. I'm super high to see him play. I'm pretty sure he'll like ninety. Nine percent are ninety nine. I'm like ninety five percent. Sure he'll be on third lima jason dickinson. And either one of neal's hold under or tenor pearson. Yeah that's such an exciting spy and it'll be the most exciting third line for the canucks since i've started watching them in like since probably the twenty team it's not personally particles in amazing to a player from what he shows in the cage l. And your seems like a good guy. He's like captaining world junior teams. I'm just super excited for him. I cannot wait semen connector as bro awesome. You know who. I'm happy is not an economics uniform anymore. Besides loui eriksson the man who shall not be named not going to say his name. 'cause faulk him but he's officially in the cage al now with Something locomotive whatever. Good riddance it. Doesn't look good when you're going to russia after sexual assault allegations from multiple women. You fucking loser. Saw peace hopes and ever see your face again on his banners. Now gone from marina which thank god because it took too long. They finally took it off. I don't know why they waited so long. I guess i don't even know. I don't even want to know james. How're also signed in the essay. Shell which you know. Whatever mean depth player you know. They signed a bunch of stuff players what makes sense And finally with the dhaliwal said that after labor day which monday the connection. Intensifying talks between themselves and ep forty and hughes which like no shit. that's should have been doing. We're getting close here. I'm expecting this to dragon and training. I don't think they're gonna be there. Started it at least us. I don't think is. I think they're both gonna like probably 'cause blockbuster didn't start training camp neither bo horvat. That's before i think just how jim. Benning negotiates ara phase. He likes to take his time with it. Which you know. It's fair like we said before with other drake bathrooms and thing you know the better deals have been signed recently the whole rush into a deal. Yes so lou. lou emeralds. Wise words were once Scott time gotta take it. Why not you know why. Russian thinks well so so when so jim benz infamous quote is a you know we take a day at a time. Okay which is absolutely terrible. The worst asset management in the league. So let's get to the atlantic. Division is in addition. Oh yeah okay. So i was the first edition of the clapper report talking about or ranking each division and the standings they're laughing. I mean for your not laughing at me for stuttering. No really clapping. So yeah no. We're gonna do this every week. We're gonna start with the atlantic division. We'll keep you on your toes about what we'll do next week. Yeah but let's get it. Let's get it going. Get it poppin right away so you were starting from the bottom of eight to one and you wanna you wanna lead us off. I think it's no surprise here. Yeah so eighth at the tampa bay light now. So yeah the buffalo sabres same. I know we're trying to go back and forth but shame. Everything is what i'm gonna say. Probably yeah there's not much to say you know for me. Except it's what's to be expected and remains the status quo in the atlantic division. You know especially subtractions of lena's linus ullmark rasmi salonen and sam reinhart has shake free. Jack eichel yeah. God knows if he's gonna get traded but regardless. He still hasn't had the surgery which is necessary from congenial to continue playing the eh so like can he be traded. I mean i don't know. I think it should be but i don't know if he will. You know montreal. Or calgary should go rogue trader imagining montreal That apparel but they'd probably want knicks zouqi Which they're not getting so That being said you know with the sabres. This is really all you can do. This year is really hope for good development years from casey middle sat cousins and rasmusen stallion along with Is it grows in it. I think he's playing s asia this year and then empower young are coming next year you really want development ears all take a step forward and you'd have a lot of space talking. Yeah so i mean maybe this is something that You take a backseat this year. You get yourself another. Pick shane right. Yeah i know. We don't want to promote taking a couple first round picks year. Yeah so. I mean next year is going to be a year that i think the sabers especially as they move eichel now they might not be in russian move eichel. Obviously they're not in a rush. I could have been done but maybe trade deadline. He's moved and you know they prepare themselves for next season because With the mood that they they could potentially make in the us that they have next season. I think that they can make an improvement from number eight spot. I think that's a very low bar. Yes because next Pains say but a number seven of the red wings. Yes same here. Yeah so. I mean i love you. I love the mood. They made i think that they put themselves in a way better position Don't think they're quite there yet. They're still very young but just like the same hers. I think next year is year that they can strike and make some moves Bring some more guys in some more youth development and The red wings are very exciting. But i i don't think they have much to punch with this year. We'll know see. I agree i mean i love the adult victory. It was a great I love them bringing peace suitor or pious suitor. But you know this is another team that's going to need huge evolve near from films edina lucas. Raymond joey delano excited about he's jay. He's a big guy. Moored cedar excited for plays a great to way game great defensemen so hopefully that translates into the nhl You know this team can be scary and several years. But i don't think that this team is gonna finish any higher than seventh in division unless unless like the youth go on an incredible run here now but then honest division. Yeah especially well. We'll get later. How top heavy. This is six. I have the ottawa senators. Oh you don't okay So are a so so ottawa. Better on the to- towards the tail end of last year because they were playing in bad division and they picked up semen other teams had covert and when other teams games didn't matter team has good pieces in the top. Six like brady chuck. Josh norris. strict battiston. Tim studio but they don't have much after they have no death down in the forward core. They only have Thomas chaba on defense and eric branch from on defense and brandon's most likely can mean a very sheltered pairing role so he's not going to have much time to the explosive offensively like he can be. I don't see him as a good team on like the previous teams is mentioned. They need some time. It's more pieces before they can even be considered to be a bubble playoff team. You know they need huge development steps just like the other two teams you know from their young players who are really carrying. The weight of the team is again. I like i mentioned. They don't have depth. They have no doubt whatsoever so that that's why i had them six. I i could see what you're saying here with my canadian in not only missing the playoffs have them going very very low. Here man okay. I don't they shouldn't have made the playoffs last season. They were the one team that shouldn't have made. The playoffs. should not have made the playoffs preaching to the choir and carey price amazing goal tender for his time. Great player great goaltender. He's aca sustain the player he's not going to sustain the play that he had face looking like hamsters. Bud dude i got the sham so read that spilling do you wanna take okay. Everybody we will be right back. We have an accident. I'm so angry. I just spilt my be everywhere. I went to happen. I closed my hand. While i went to grad the beer and it was like the most often so matt not paying attention see do canadians fans. Yeah no kidding. Fans piss me off but anyway i really don't think kerry price is going to sustain the level of play. He did. I mean yeah my coffins. There i don't really think that. The addition. I really don't think that they did much though. Obviously my coffins a great player but not much change for a team that was going to miss the playoffs last season in a weaker division of what they're playing it now Obviously you're playing the whole nhl. I don't see them doing good. I don't see them doing good at all. I mean maybe this oversight. Because i'm not too familiar with him and their play. I mean obvious. Unfortunately i am. Obviously you know you have tactfully. Who went off for them last season. Unfortunately for you you know. Nick suzuki great player caulfield. I mean he's exciting. I just. I don't see the level of play that got him to the Going to sustain this year and I'm pretty high on a lot of other teams in this division so For essentially those reasons. I had the canadians have v So i put a time to upset some people. I didn't know i would be upsetting them less than you know. I went for the dagger on them. Yeah so i look essentially. I'm that set on it. Like i don't i. Don't mind missing the play. I've sat on the missing. The playoffs agreed. Obviously the senators get into them. Obviously you pretty much hit every now on them but Anyway hugo sorry it's okay So that that's what this exercises for So yeah so. Montreal had cinderella story last season right. They were team that everyone wanted to take the lightning down and they got squash in the finals in five games dave. They got absolutely demolished. They got lucky that game four and that was it was over after that right you follow this up. Setting off season with losing shea weber. Too injury i'm ninety nine. percents sure. Losing yester- teeny emmy tune offer carolina at this point loose thomas tar who benched in the playoffs for literally. No reason was great partier team for three years. And then you you know you know with all that said following another mediocre regular season mike carey price. I don't think teams can be good enough to be a wildcard team in the eastern conference especially with the the very good metropolitan division and the very top heavy atlantic division. Right i mean so. I also that being said expected very sharp decline in thailand. Foley's production sustainable and it's not just the spiteful connotes outstanding me talking like january do that. He over performed a million times last hundred percent. I'm asking like six goalscoring which agree. That's not sustainable. However a full year of coal caufield will make them more exciting. And we'll probably negate that tyler to fully loss. I do think. I mean i lump is a thing. He didn't even play full year. He played like ten games. That sure you know that that is that is true. So i don't know if he has enough credits via sophomore. That's true wh when jake evans is your second line center. I just don't grasp he can make noise in this really tough top of the atlantic division. There's no shot the make it him. Barring massive injuries to the top four teams. That are involved in this division Again jonathan hopefully he comes back. He's scheduled come back like inland comeback. I do love jonathan. Drano is have. I hope that he persevered through whatever it is going through currently but like they need a lot more any alive from him. And especially man. I think shea weber's losses so undervalued right now. I think that is such a dire to the canadians agrees such a huge pillar on that team. I mean then you really need to have that. Alexander romanov really shows up and projects himself as a two three defensemen on his team. Because if they don't have that. Pierre has doesn't have another great season they're not gonna have anything of price slips at all. He falls at all teams done. So i don't think contains are gonna make playoffs. That'll being said. I can't believe how bad canadians fans have been on social media. Recently i mean anytime. One of the pages has anything to say about them. They start bogging out. I thought connects fans were soft. I mean the canadians were ranked on puck umpire. Twenty first or something like that and and even he was like. Oh boy here we go. You know like about like going on so why. He thinks that the canadian aren't as good as contains fancy when canadians fans were like or you could. This team is better than the canadians. I doubt it. There's no way the oilers jets though the blackhawks all this stuff. There's no way they're better. And i'm mike. Yeah they are. The canadians are a good team. They've finished under five hundred last year. Good i know they made the cup. And it's hard for me to avenue. What did i say got hot at the right time. Carey price scott. How hot at the right time. He was the best goaltender in the world years ago. He was one hundred percent pro season. He was the best turn in the world now. He's now he's not gonna happen. It's gonna happen again. Yeah again yes so. I'm glad when agreement. Anyway let's go to your fifth. Yeah i mean it's the senators like like you said before you. You had a lot of it that that's pretty much all his permanent to them. It's another team that played in the canadian division. That's going to be playing these tough. Tough tough teams that they didn't have to face last year. I mean look at it. I don't i don't see any of these teams doing well. Unfortunately is bottom teams volume. Seems like i don't see them doing well playing the rest of the nhl. I mean. I like their top six in their youth. More than i like The canadians only. Because i feel like they have a little bit more underneath there. You know underneath their skates they put a little bit more So that's honestly the only reason why i gave them a little bit of an edge but these two are interchangeable. They're not gonna farewell. See my i think can ease some more depth. They don't have they don't have as high end pieces. But they better space to if i'm not mistaken Yeah but the win over. They just went over the cap floor and making him so. Yeah i mean you have matt marine. I would like yeah. Yeah i forgot. I would like to see another goal tender in there you know if they can make them look into but i i don't see them to all right so let's get to the spicy the top. Yeah yeah all right. So i think i'm up for the fourth god. I know who you're is now. You don't say fourth. I feel like you're going to say the least but it's okay. Yeah yeah i knew a why how. Before i say anything i want to say i think the forty fourth third and second spots are interchangeable I think that's going to be super close like within like six points of each other like from second to fourth. It's in six points. I think it's extremely closing. They're taking the wild card. Of course right one hundred percent. Well yeah so so then. They believe they lost hyman. Who while we were saying how he's overrated free agency. He has amazing defensive skills while putting up solid points and it really helped out the top. Six maple leafs. Yeah he. I would agree. They got relatives arguably deeper and therefore ford group but cost defensively. Which is what spanish. Well so that. I didn't even write that in here. But because it's just it's just the same defense was last year. Yeah it's not a good defensive defense and now they're not even gonna have help on the front And so here so nick. Ritchie is going to be interesting. He's a bad bottom. Six ford i just think he makes dumb decisions at the wrong times. Yeah he was a liability in the season and especially in the tough rivalry games with the middle east. I think he's going to do the exact same thing. I've things going to try to play in a force a role while he really should be trying to play power forward roll. We'll see if andrea cachet can continue what he started in anaheim in his career and putting up solid numbers but he's only played nine games in this a two seasons so he's i am pretty sure injury. Yeah so he's played that. That's a huge gamble. That on your third line under this and especially if a god forbid have an entry top six. I think that's rough. Then the lease banking on two young players to be in their top six and michael bunting who had thirteen points in twenty one games last year. It's good in arizona. That's good respectable. How are those only twenty one games. Yeah so you really need to be wary of that. And nick robertson is gonna play his first nhl game. I'm pretty sure it's enemies first. Nhl game you know. He's a rookie. Some people are already saying he's the top six and while that can happen for sure i mean. Look at neil's ho vendor. It's possible yeah it can happen. But i'm so weary of it. It's tough atlantic division. Yeah and if your banking on like those four forwards. I mean right there. That's four ford's that's a third of your ford they of banking on. That's there's so many questions with them in their ford i just think a lot of their centered especially top six. Like matthews's hit is. Yeah like i feel like that's something that like. Well we'll see what happens at mcdavid and dry style and those are the two best players agreed agreed. So you're right. That's actually salad bowl. And then i also wanna say police are then going jack. Campbell and peter connect- Razek solid on his game. But he's also wavered. In the past jack campbell also played well last year he did but again on a stack team that punish the week north division. Yeah so that. That's the thing is canadian teams like my point here. I think they're going to struggle adjusting back into regular play with other teams to any played twenty nine games last year. So i wanna keep an eye on the phantom. I think things can be really difficult in this top heavy atlantic division with who i have above them the panthers bruins light who can shell teams especially teams who have a weaker decor like. I do think that the maple leaves a week or before especially because then their bottom pairing is like really young guys who let's be real aren't like the best i again. I know the cows fan. I want to talk. I think cross have bottom five in the league. But i mean still you know. It doesn't mean. I can't call out a spade a spade. Yeah that's my thing on the maple leafs off but again four third second. They're interchangeable. I see them most likely being fourth. I mean i don't necessarily disagree with you at all I just think that. I do really like the panthers so i have them. Obviously where you had the leafs where we were at number. I'm so sorry my number. Four number four. Yeah so i have the panthers at four. Sorry they're solid team. They're really solid team. I think they are going to make the playoffs. It's just that the all these things are going to be also seems layer. That out i for some reason. I want to have a little bit more faith in the leafs. Just based off their past. It's fair to be honest. Just based on their past. I want to have a little bit faith. I mean sam reinhart. They just bought them in right. So he's going to be insane. I mean a line of barkov. In reinhard hall i mean that's that's solid now. Just think then you don't even have hugo toppling. I'm one of your second line. I know i know claire. He's a solid signing to. I mean he's a guy that like. Yeah they him yeah. I think that he is a guy. That's going to have a really big impact solid middlesex. Where i think this seems really good. Only say they could take the spot of the leafs. And i feel like i'm like fucking cop out right now for saying all these things but like it's true. It's true a month out from the season. i think. I think this team is solid. The only thing that like they're going to be writing spencer knight who's good. He's good he's very young and then when then. It's what happens if a card or heart situation happens here. you know. i don't wanna you know. Put some bad juju on a more whatever but like it can happen. He's very young. And then we're go back above russky. I mean i know you're paying him like he should like he's a goaltender but say yeah. Yeah so i. I don't think you're gonna get that out of him. So i unfortunately put the panthers at the four spot with toronto at three. Obviously no surprise there You said a lot of item. I think that honestly they could even move up. In the in the standings i mean it all depends. I really liked the lightning in abruzzo. I think they're going to outperform them. But i do agree with you in fact. I think that this team did take a step back especially in the forward group. I know that you swapped out a defensive guy for another guy who feel a little bit more offensive. But i don't think that's your problem team. I think you guys can score. I think you guys need to keep the puck island at Maybe you solve that net. But that's a question. Mark hyman losses. Big yeah but i understand why they let him go. They had to your name six years for five million greed. But like you're just going with the mentality that you could score more goals and you can keep out which you can do this team. And they're banking on their. I mean their defense. Three offensive defencemen. Exactly so it's not. It's i feel like. I feel like the oilers. Show it that their regular season monsters. We cried. I cried about this season. That their regular season monsters. I think the leaves are going to struggle in the playoffs again. But i think they're going to be able to put up enough points to put them in a respectable spot in the standings. Anyway i'm done so you're number. Three is the panther right. Oh no yes. So this is the true cinderella team for me. I fucking love. I love watching them. Play man so that makes me sound super bias. When i talk about them however they are not my favorite team their defence is a on. Sorry wow i. Wrote their defenses tremendously great. Their offense is atrociously. Great with the addition of san right here like you mentioned. I mean they have filthy. Boo top says nuts. It's gonna be good i mean. Yeah verhaeghe barkov reinhard schubert. Oh i mean they are absolutely bonkers and not to mention san ben. Anthony declared like yeah like you said i mean you know they're going to continue to tear up the sleet and it's gonna be super fun to see also think they have it a solid defense court. I think they have a good top. Pairing zieger and aaron act blad especially because earn blood. It's gonna be back on the ice. After having his great season cut short by gnarly injury last year. I go back to mess leg. But apparently he's doing fine Parents really good. And then they have. They have pretty solid Second and third period. I don't hate it. Yeah mark navarra brennan monce were. Who is there forsling. This better than i like to leave. I will agree. Yeah i saw gustav forsling Radcow goose so. I think that they're forward. Defense are better however yell like you said the biggest question mark for me to spencer night can he truly be number one goaltender carrying the semen playoffs at twenty years old. Haven't played like four games. I agree i. It's it's a huge thing. But i've been playing a lot of red dead redemption lately and so like dutch would say arthur. You just gotta have some faith so that right. There is what i'm going to say. You have to have some faith with this panthers seaman true cinderella team. Yeah they're awesome to watch their superfund. They haven't engaged fan base all that jokes about like. Oh fanta remember the fans killer down there. The team is killer the general managers killer. They're building a winter culture. Just like the islanders were doing a couple years ago now. The panthers are starting on that trend right now. I'm calling right now. The panthers going to be the next winning culture team in the east however. I do think that they're behind the bruins and the lightning. Yeah so i do think they are third though in the division. So renew your ones who are going to want to one my to one I'm not going to say it. Because i said for all these other teams And i don't have a cop out here. I'm gonna i'm gonna stick to my guns chatab and i think the birds be number two. Yeah me too. I did write that. I think they could easily be number one. But i feel like i said that every fucking time here i kind of full season of taylor hall plan on the squad Who do they just lose to. Just like reggie krejci so like that. That's a big loss. One hundred percent but hall stepping in. I mean i also think that in goal since they lost to harass they brought in the leanest ullmark minus all mark and jeremy swimming getting another year. Better though i have goaltending tandem also mark with a real team dot dot dot dot. He's playing with a real team. He stole games for the buffalo sabres. The ni- evan playing on the boston bruins offensive superpower. Yeah no they're going to light it up. He's gonna play tremendously in front of them. I also think that bruce cassidy needs a killer season for his wad. I feel like they're going to really pull for him to And i think that the bruins in a state that they are right now need a big statement here. And i think this is going to be it. I think that they're going to go off All hockey side. I think the bruins are gonna just quote unquote nut up and put some points on the board and really really do a good good good season here. Yeah and The other point the other point. I have Similar years well. So i have that cry. She's a huge blow to the team. The gap in the worse. So now charlie coyle most likely filling that role. Charlie cole is fine. I think a good third line center but You know it's going to be tough. But again taylor hall coming in for playing with it. Offered cheated cooking. Emmy seven million on That would have been awesome but yeah in all seriousness again with their goaltending situation. Yeah great I think they're deepen their bottom six. To i mean jacob rusk felino khawla thomas no sack. Courtesy are entrenched frederick. I think they're pretty good bottom six. I think that they can stand on their own. And i think they're gonna hover between two three this year. They're defensive core. I think the mcevoy's still going to get better. Love the long island. Native show mcevoy allen isolated from oceanside wishing planning to be noise from long beach sees me See ashaari mcevoy a long island native mac right slick who is also pretty good. Yeah i'm mike riley carlo. I think they have a good decor Yeah and so. that's awesome. I think number one. We have the tampa bay lightning Even losing a whole line. Essentially i i still think that lighting remain at the top of division there so sack with their stars kucherov. Sam coz headman basil. Sem less not brayden point. All starting no i They're not going to be a great team There may be growing pains in the bottom six with the younger players. Did they did lose a whole lot like well. That's what i'm saying like you much know exactly amin lake. You didn't lose much. You didn't lose much and you guys were incredibly deep beforehand. I that's the thing. They built the teams that way they can withstand the losses. I mean listen ability over you. Can you can lose out on eighteen million dollars fine. Yeah i mean ross. Colin matthew joseph on their third line. I think they're gonna be good. There may be growing pains still super young and being a third line role. That may be a little bit anthony. You're playing next anti-israeli and then you have your educator You know like your your guys above you. That could probably pull a little bit more weight. Probably play a little bit more of the two lines a little bit more than a third line and fourth line. I think you're fine. Also will per daily face off. They have alice beret. Boulay on this on the second line. So i don't know how that's gonna work out. It might be a thing where like they just don't have a deal signed yet. But again the the decor decode the decoy. The decor the corps. I fucking love their decor as someone who played defense. I love their decor that victor hedman yon rueda ryan mcdonagh airy sirnak mckell. Surrogate have cow foot. Yes mike scary team in. I mean they're not i mean. How is new fiber in my body's. Stand this fucking team. I hate them. I think i hate them more than any other team in the league including the rangers at this spare. I got a bet against them. I can't bet against them. If i'm a betting man if i'm a guy that wants to make money i'm going for three pete and they're going to easily take the atlantic. I mean obviously barring any injuries which is something that they do suffer with and there are going to lose a little bit depth so a couple of injuries they can slide one hundred percent but that celeski don't even you don't even have to talk like he's the best goaltender but you don't even have to talk about it when you talk about this team. Fortunately which is fucking ridiculous. Because that's how means as i completely forgot about man fucking he's nuts even when this star search team let them down he steals. Yeah he's nuts. Goaltender fuck you. Yeah Third grade team. I y jillian brita. I can't wait for islanders lightning. Spf three madison loose again. That'd be the worst time. I actually almost crowd. actually it. was shed a tear. When you said that. 'cause i wouldn't be able to handle that. I wouldn't be able to handle their loss of the lightning but anyway that wraps up our atlantic division you want to say you have any last notes you want to say about it. No except i gotta say canadians fans humble yourselves man canadian fans you guys got a chill on social media like loki. I'm getting sick of seeing goes. No jake season's upon us. I'm i'm going to take off on the fucking comments four. Listen okay. I like to suburban white kids. But i hated this drake. I thought i didn't hate it. I just didn't think it was looking face. You guys can't look at it. It was like mid it was mid. Wasn't drinks best album. No wasn't here's another great album but what what's the marvin's room. That's a decent one. I don't dislike that one in literally every has bangers on it has club hits on it that you see on his head. Why are you getting heart shaped in near head close before. He's a certified loser boy that's what he is saying. Omar you kidding me. I mean okay. I don't like the love. Poetry poppies home hong copies home to get a grip girls. How stupid it was. It's not a bad lot of the dumbest line here is being realigned. It'll metoo you're a guy like girls that means you're straight you're not a lesbian but if somebody would say in fourth grade is not good. I'm sorry it's the exact same as well as other albums. I did you listen to probably the first three songs. Fortunately i listen to what is way too sexy way too sexy way supposed to be a talk song. They'll fucking sample in the beginning of that. The whole the whole song dumb future is the only thing good about it. Well sooner future. Love you buddy. But he's the best thing about it dude. What's that song with. Fucking rick ross. And wayne that is you'll only at those. You only live once. Jake make up your mind. He he can only two song. I've heard this year's shot the five absolute either that song dude. April rains classic. When you hear that beat it spell. Classic that's a classic slow rains. Classic it's classic. It's a beautiful i is. You guys could probably don't drink at all. He's a hater a hundred percent. I don't think drake's like listen. I appreciate what he's done for the the genre i appreciate. How many albums sold whatever the new generation. I appreciate the influence that he's had number one of our shit. I don't care. I don't care how many you sold it doesn't he makes the best thing to say but he does. But it's alright doesn't care it doesn't matter they know one for you exactly because it streak. Can't he set the analyst enough rap anymore. I'm be real but like us enough happening more. I remember one just because he's number. One in sales does not mean. He's the best sale bring when he talked about. Gosh oh the sales sales plan on the planet. Whatever paw that is that is not all of you guys in the group show. Because i'm not in that group. Yes they say. No no okay. I'm in the group. But like i'm not in. The army of his sales have been in their best know. His songs are vibe. Every album has as songs has generational shifting songs off. Don't even get me started. This guy won't go down in history as a number one of this generation. Connie was raped before him. Now it's drake. It's benchley five to ten years. Needles went around to the best of generate. I don't think they're the best of that generation. I like the music at all. I hear you because Time to change. I think it'd be the time change. I don't know. Because i because they just fucking talks about whatever and they got ever an awful over him but but like dress number one of the rap game right now and He'll stay there who's number two there. I would probably venture to say i. This point dana age gays. Obviously number two Where do you put like kendrick. I know a couple years. He hasn't put out to shit that he says it's not he's like three or four he's three or four. I have four and now only because he hasn't done shit if he's he was rumored having album this year to like is is like when you're listening to him. You're like line in like this week. Right he said something about like. Oh i came from the seventy or something like that like and then like this kid did like a hole deep dive on what he meant. It had like it's like. I love something that we had to be like. That's what i feel like. Here's my actual thing. I'm not trying to sound like a hater here. It's like for me. It's like. I feel like his sound hasn't really evolved. You know what. I mean in the sense of weight and i i. I mean in the sense of like what he's been talking about. You know what i mean. I feel like. I feel like every time i listen to his. It's like the same idaho. But what are you know. What do you want to go into. Because like honestly he's the guy that found stardom from. Tv was raised in a relatively stable home for the most part and just found himself to become at the very ripe age. Sixteen seventeen to become a star. So it's like what is he gonna wrap about get deep about see then to like. I don't listen to route the same way. That like i dunno. I wasn't around when i smoke. But like and so i was just like a chill that kind of thing. And it's like i can't do that streak. I just don't think he has chill songs. He is the owner. Does yes on this album. I will say that there's a lot more chill vibe to it more. So that is just like lit. Let's club let's let's let's have an anthem. I accept the talk song except for the docs. but it's still a banger. Still it still. I hate the fact. I just said like it actually made me cringe. It's still drake song. It's gonna do it's gonna do. Great people are going to love it. It's going to be every single one of your friends captions for the next year and a half. It's well fluential friends. maybe but i'm not interesting. Your friends i'm saying literally anybody asia so influential that you can't head on it so we can't leave people waiting. What are you. What are you give it out of time. I'm on your first. Like i'm assuming. Listen once i listened to it all day to two and a half times. And i picked the songs i really liked it. I listened to a lot. I'm going to go to eight. Go with the solid eight again. I feel like it was a letdown for drake album though like i feel like c. I'd probably get like six. Like i don't think he's bad. I know i know. I joke around in the shocks he doesn't. It's not your five. Which is all the show. Millie bobby brown and like the like seventeen year olds onstage and everything. I don't like ten years ago. Okay okay you're turning twenty four right next year. Yeah the seventeen year old. No no no make out with her okay but he kept compliments here which which he has a history of that. I also don't like that. I don't like the millie. Bobby brown is literally like absolutely nothing. It's just oh traumatized just for people to say that when it does become something. It's literally not i mean it's fine. It's fine we we take. I don't hate has music. Like i say drake defender and she's definitely our ear. Your apologised No i don't hate us music. Like i always say in the group that i do. I just don't like it you know. I think it's fine. I understand the appeal. I do understand the bill. i just don't like it. Yeah which is fair. Which is i can't hate you on. Like i don't i know it definitely sounds like super like pretentious me but i do prefer like kendrick. I think hundred is nuts like the shit that he says in his songs. It's like insane. I also love j. cole's more i gotta say kohl's homeless nuts. Yeah jacob was nuts. But i think connie is albumin. Drake's on plainfield. Yeah i was upset with drake's connie's gospel shit so much and it felt lost like i felt lost listening to it like i felt like i was like i felt like i was in connie's brain. Space fell railing chaotic. It felt. I also think that goes into what we were talking about before we started recording is how long these albums and getting an hour and a half hour forty minutes. It's like why what happened on the two hours. It was like our forty nine legitimately two hours. Let me just fifteen minutes. I like listening to hardcore mostly. Now it's like nothing wrong an album. It's thirty minutes long for me. Like i don't like added to an hour forty minutes for connie like how much of its filler. Like the whole thing half. So i also do think that the features andre album were mostly better than him million times better. And that's the thing. I find common on his albums. I think the features that he brings on do better than he does on the songs and drake was an hour twenty six minutes so yeah it was definitely long But the only thing was which rakes drake's features to better than i like his songs features and like with connie like felt like he was on a song for thirty seconds and then he was gone and then it was just a features but he was just riding the coattails of the features. Drake have that in common. I mean at least on this No not on this album at all. Drake went off the entire album. But this been rambling guys. If you love your rap we're going to start a brab.

"Welcome back everybody to another episode of the clap report. We have a couple of things to go over a couple of signings and wanna talk about just took a sip of his beer. There any weird. He got taken back by. I don't i don't dislike it but we're going to run through the teams and they're signing some some quick news Also there's a athletic from Sean mc andew. I got makindu makino mckendall He wrote about the six confusing teams in the nhl from this offseason. So we're going to touch on that and we're also going to read through the top free agents left and the latest rumors surrounding those guys will go through basically the top ten. Yep sounds good anyway. Let's get into it. What's going on everybody again. Welcome to the clap report I feel like it's a another intro. Like a second introduction to episodes. Yeah every time because i don i don't even know man. I feel like everything. Just say is built like a commercial like one of those but like one of those really terrible local commercials like shirley group everybody crew to shirley hotel group approved. Approved approved died. I know it always seems like we kinda have like a secondary in. But i feel like there's no other way like i feel like at least for us to start. Yeah we always want our little basic intro. Then we go going a little music and then we come back and then we do do send him using the same. I don't know maybe you know bro. Maybe we do a second season we come into. It would change the format. Change of the intro. Ooh spoiler go. Yeah spoiler alert. you want to break the the The news we actually have some really bad news. Share with you guys This is gonna be our last our last episode. It's been fun. i. I enjoyed every episode. That we've i know recorded guinness set up together but it's got to come to come soon at one point and you know for about two weeks because Yeah now we're just gonna take a quick break There's not a whole lot of news going on so it's beginning coming pretty hard for us to Come up with new ideas and you know a bunch of different yes. Let's talk about for an hour. Yes especially being like inexperienced really. I mean because we've only news a few months now off season. Nothing really much has been happening. Saw me you know it's not it's not it's not nothing permanent will take a knock break goodbye. It's see you later. It is a see you later. We'll come back. We'll we'll probably try and implement something new or change something up for the season and And it also has nothing to do with the new coming out next week. Yes guys are playing cod. hit us up. We wanna play. You're not gonna play shut. I'm gonna play especially caught dude. The beginning of modern warfare was so fun it also. It helped you're stuck inside with quarantine not necessarily beginning. Yeah we really played it all together and one point so dow is incredibly fun. Time not gonna lie and i kind of missed the search search and destroy. Try hard as i used to be. No that used to be well. I used to get everybody into it too. Yeah thanks plano play. Do you guys play call duty at no. I saw a couple of months ago. It was too big. You know that's what she said. It's it was too big for my hard drive though that's anyway i've just playing overwatch. Nhl red dead and it. Evan update for us on your nhl like So wait what are you playing more. Replay more relate to gm motor pros. Yeah okay. I saw like the be a pro. This is very time consuming Plus i i'm more into like running a franchise. So how does your franchise gone. I think year four or five canucks chips the and my one and but schools been picking up. So i haven't been playing as much So what happened near two three and four years fallen in the playoffs gonna of no year year two. I'm i finished fourteenth last. what happened. i don't know i just missed the playoffs by two points. What have your team you a lot of people on no. I don't think so i. I forgot what had happened. I don't know. But that's what. I wound up moving out to the first overall pick. Okay i got a ozzy rousey for some twenty twenty one to pay Now he's my first line pederson besser first line already like two more years after. Okay yeah sixty points in three. I think jesus with patterson buster yeah. I lost in the conference. Finals against the avalanche seems legit. Yeah so but i hopefully we can reclaim. I've tried to reinvent my bottom six kind of difficult. But you know you should do and you can do it right on your xbox just stream it like twitch and then just show the clap report jan mood do that drunk drunk and shell game studio w chill dude. I i got i mean. I don't know how many people would wanna watch franchise mode live. That's true from me. Well that's true. But i feel like i feel like gm mode especially gives further insight to to hockey. Yeah because it gives you the the idea of like you know kind of what gm's are going through basically a not as life or death literally because not life or death but like living but I don't know it'd be kind cool. Maybe i'll maybe. I'll think about what do i need to mix. Ira or something. Well mixers gone actually makes her so I it's just going to be sure of twitch and but we do want him have your own twitch or we can even set up an unofficial cloudy court to which channel that you should read on in the in the break people have through Switch we'll just stream well stream. Kat well man maybe i ought to get back to you on Do we do our beer talk. So funny story guys. We did record like the beginning first. Five minutes of our episode and we did the beer talk but As always if you guys are listener for a while now you'll know that we have technical issues from time to time. We lose the whole episode. Yeah we lost a whole well. We lost forty minutes or something stupid once and lost of phillips second. Yeah so we were used to this at least this time. Five minutes. yeah we call it. I heard it all know. This isn't happening. We're not letting this happen again. So we caught it early. Luckily but i guess we could do our beer. Talk real quick. Yeah big mistake. it's raced. Yes thank god. That five minutes is gone. We're not going to say what the mistake was. But it's okay even suspense. You don't wanna roast me. That's really should happens. Well today re drinking the same beer from last week The barrier brewing company's sweet It's like their fruit flavored beer. I don't know i like it. I liked it the last time is olga enjoying it this time too so it's very good. It's definitely one of my favorites. Put for all you light beer drinkers. I definitely think that this is a good option to warm up to. Yeah doesn't like ip's but i try. I don't know but i think she will be. If you're listening and you haven't had it during it telling you about it's good fucking that thing from spongebob that it's radical radical drink sponsor. I want to be the salesman. Get outta town to sonny see-saw. Spongebob still reigns supreme. I don't care what anybody says about it here. The first few seasons. Yeah oh well i mean. I haven't watched it. Obviously since like i don't even know when what do you mean obviously is it. Are you supposed to not when when did you stop watching spongebob. I still watch occasionally really like work to. Oh i mean that makes sense because you work with the youth. But i mean i haven't watched it at least since i probably middle school. No way really. Yeah i don't know watch reruns in high school. I didn't watch like send the reruns i would. and well. yeah. It was on to be honest. And i get roasted a lot At my previous job. And even now. I don't watch a lotta tv. Yeah whether it's live tv netflix. Hulu whatever i dunno. I video game as you know i would rather play video games. Yeah you know. Now that i'm wiped up and everything like that. And i've been actually okay now. I'm gonna relationship and we watch netflix all the time. Now what are what are the top three things that you guys watch well right now and i've seen before actually right now. We're watching breaking bad again for me. I i love.

So let's just put that in the past hour. We were we top three shows that you're washing. Yes yes so. We were watching breaking bad currently almost on the last season so we know we just spoiler alert just in case. Nobody's seen spoiler spoiler spoiler which is crazy considering this has been out for how many years now had thirty seconds. Yeah we just watched gusts blow up utterings. Yeah well not even really. We comes out with this half faces. A craigslist tiny falls dramatic scene. I haven't seen the shown a while. It's y'all know it's crazy. I don't know if this is the same for everybody. I also have a really bad memory. I don't really remember like majority of scenes that happen. And i watched it and i love the show. I always say that it's one of my favorite shows. Course i remember like key plot ideas. Yeah remind for guys like most of the show. I was s when this happened. So i don't know it's cool Another show that we just recently wash. Which i really like. Follow up to the hunting of hill. House was why do better than hell house. No it's not better than hill house. It's totally different. It's two different shows. Got you totally different. Shows saw of the horror nerd. Yeah but it's really good dude. I would suggest watching it. Okay i i enjoyed it and last but not least certainly a really good i liked was dark. It was it's like an overseas show that they kind of voiced over for here. I think it's german. I think it's german Really get show crazy. It's like time traveling. Like orbs and like dawn bags like eighteen hundreds but then going into the future fifty year. I don't know it's all over the place. It's really good though. I suggested i would suggest you wash that before. Blame enter okay so those are my three now that i'm a tv person but going back to spongebob the original idea. I didn't forget. We were talking about two but i remember. It was the fact that i'm not a tv person. But you know willie right. Obviously we keep mentioning him on the spot cast but he would roast me forever for not being in tv person. I got it. The i'm not really guy either. Yeah it tastes law from you. Sit down and watch your show. Well yeah. I guess sort of shocked between my phone or again playing xbox really really bad attention span. Yeah so it's like difficult for me. Tell me i know All right are you gonna move over to the to the hockey news. Now yes sure So couple of signings. Just i just had a brain lapse for a second See other rangers had a couple of signings this week shouts martin show martin and tabitha fuck early in the pen for taxation. Have you seen that video dude. It's such a week video. Oh yeah i remember. You told me you had a story to toe. Do you remember. Now you're like know we'll wait till we record story that memory lapsing. You're talking about fuck. Sorry use the context. There was no context. That's why i was kind of excited. I was like oh save. It was right before we recording. That's all right. Don't worry about my fault for doing this to you. I swear you happen though. You don't even remember that happening. No i remember that happening though is absolutely no context to it. That's the thing story story on the memory left now but We'll finish out the rangers and if you remember it interrupt no matter where we are. I'm yes so holy fucking shit. I'm soo young for this Yeah ryan yeah so ryan her to yeah two year nine million dollar contract with the rangers For four point five year He got fifty nine points at seventy games. breakout year. Which is cool. It was nice. Yeah for them. I previously had eighteen goals in seventy games. No that was the that was the for my bad but he had a career high. An assistant points No i mean. Yeah i mean definitely a good piece but they give him a show me deal you know at the bridge. Deal those who show him. And then we can't pay because billion pieces to pay now. That's very true. They don't they don't have. I don't see if strom actually shows up and has a out sending season. He may not or two seasons rather may not be there anymore because then they'll have signed kako in two years. I think cocco and then they got at least just kako and angelo to the angela feeling back to. I feel like this rangers team. They have a short window here. I don't know i mean. Obviously they have a lot of young pieces. I would probably be the team for a while but at least a team that they have now I think they got to win. Now they want it with these pieces. Yeah i could see that though the year to where they can potentially make the playoffs and they'll have a. They're definitely making the playoffs unfortunate. Definitely i think what one hundred percent during the playoffs this next season. i mean. obviously it's going to be a little different. A little weird with shortened season more than likely but you trust their goaltending. Yeah they were great. They're outstanding last season small sample size definitely but they obviously have a lot of faith in them considering they lundquist. Go and the money that they're pumping into these two goaltenders. Good little swedish tango there. Whatever you wanna call them. What's what's the recipe. Oh no that's him. Know what are they russian. they're rushing. I got confused with the tangos. The makes up for my lhasa. Whatever i got. What's his name is swedish fucking luck with him. I thought they were swedish. For some reason gore given a store or store yeah. Those are swedish names. Yeah yeah of course. Those are swedish there s american. I'm not going to go there. Never mind the seconds brendan lemieux a two year. Deal at one point five five year I mean you know. He's a good bottom six player Gets them to a little bit of penalty trouble but You know he's a good fire could shrink player for them. you know. yeah. I mean. I feel like it's a lot of money for bottom guy but then again don't really know. Also what's it called he I think this is one of the only cases that actually settled. I think that this is a settled. Arbitration deal oh yeah yeah like that is just like one they'll iron out when in arbitration interesting i. I hate the rangers. So i'm not really excited to see it but i definitely i. I can't even stand looking at their jersey. I was watching a video of them the other day. Why well as watching. Like i don't know i always get like random. Nhl like recommended videos highlights and like oh like craziest hits or whatever the hell you want or like. Oh what the hell are you doing moments those. I always occasionally watch them on. Board and Yeah the rangers were in their lot. So i was looking at these jerseys. Nhl bias at east coast biased. Nhl has there so ugly deep blue. Anyway my unders finally will up. Dude yeah even if it was only an hour They sign roll up. Roll it and polack. So why they signed for two years. it's decent. I a lot of people complaining about the two years you know. I feel like the term. Wasn't there right now. No definitely definitely in a normal situation probably would have gone it but with the with the certain circumstances where now i feel like it's a great deal Five million per year by the way so ten million altogether not too bad not too bad for for toppling demand. so i don't know with it Obviously two years. I think. I think it's unrestricted after two years. So people are upset about that. But they're not gonna signed a one year deal and considering next season they have a bunch of our face to sign buell and i think another name or two is gonna need a contract so it makes sense what they're doing. I'm scared next season. We're not even through this one. Yeah no i get that a lot and then the year after that we're gonna have pull up wanting a contract so it's like what the hell who knows maybe regress a little bit. I mean or the same amount. Yeah who knows you know The scary thing is right now. Is that. There's only three point nine million dollars left to spend. Yeah so obviously the elephant in the room and said they still need to sign bombshell Some people call in seven million. Some people are like. Oh he's going to get an offer sheet for ten eleven cutting unless it's a long term deal. Yeah so i mean three point nine left. I don't know what they're gonna do. I'm thinking a million. Yeah i mean they gotta get. They gotta get moving with these contracts. They gotta move something. Even if you're moving a peace now. I know me and other people were hopeful that these two second rounders can help move a piece. But i don't know what they gotta do. You gotta move. Somebody like boy. Chuck core com leo or. I don't even know i've annot anymore. Just make something happen please. Yes a tough situation to be indefinitely. I'm sure they're gonna figure it out though apparently Pull on his on his call to he was saying how like him and bars l. Talk and you know they definitely want to take team friendly contracts so that way they want they wanna make a run with the team they have. Now what. The had last season playoffs with special i mean. Obviously he's going to say that in a in a post conference for signing of course he's gonna be like. Oh yeah we like to steam. And i mean business out. If i'm not mistaken somebody else said something similar. Okay we're gonna move out now then. There was like another quick signing of vladislav garrick hav from the blue jackets. I said that right. I think it'd gavrikov vladislav garrick gavrikov. i can't get that first name to be honest vladislav slava loudest love anyway. It's definitely a three year deal. Two point eight million per Helping solidify this c- columbus blue jackets de corps Their de corps scary man. They're they're very i. I love this team. I honestly do. I love watching them play even though it can be boring sometimes. I like watching the blue the same thing about the islanders. I don't think they're boring to watch. So i'd like a defensive team. Say there's nothing on watching the next skits gordon twenty times a game but they scored twenty one goals anyway. I'm mark from the bail amount. They have hoped the entire go. Well see i think they'll be right. Yeah hope so. They're all ira now th- well they can't really do anything else you know they. They don't have anything else to really do I mean you do have a good point. There you know they. They don't have the cassius to sign their needs. You know another middle six winger And other top four defenceman. Yeah they don't have the cap space for that so it looks on what peter they were over. I don't know legitimacy at but they're around like a million dollars over the cat Someone's getting buried in the minors definitely Well you said it was at a. What's his name right. Michael furlan Within tr definitely man. He says he's he says he's good to play but he said the same thing then he played a shift and then how to sit out the rest of the playoffs. I mean they're going to have team doctors involved in that decision. I think it has to be cleared by the idea. It has to be so they're definitely going to league officials looking into it. But it's like you know the the guys had so many concussions. You know you can't risk your health you know. I certainly wouldn't want to especially if you made your money. You know. I mean still going to be getting paid From if he's on our so r. o. l. tr. Excuse me. I just said that litter litter another note I saw it on a post and it's crazy to think of the dallas stars. You know with their great past season signing of their coach and everything. Yeah they're going to have a really rough. Start to the next season as both tyler sagan and ben bishop are going to be both out for five months yeah I believe it was sagan with a hip surgery in bishop with a knee surgery. There again five months like that. Yeah obviously we don't know in the season realistically isn't gonna start hopefully sooner than later especially feel full of having more than fifty games. Yeah i. It should definitely be probably early early january. Hopefully i don't know but yeah they're going to be out there going to be out man. I mean that's two studs to stars of their team. I also remember reading something Speaking started season they're definitely not going to an eighty two game season. Oh yeah back to back and like a prolonged the probably gonna fall suit of like a shortened lockout season game from yahoo. Save forty eight to sixty games. Yeah they're going to hire and but then again maybe even some owners might not want to play games only because of the money that are going to be dumping into it. Yeah i mean at this point the nhl you know it would almost be embarrassing if they don't have season like day. One hundred percent have to have a seasonal definitely like you guys are way too big to fail at this point. You're like a bank man too big to fail. You can't can't not play again embarrassing. The league if they do not have a season but then again also in the eyes of the owners you already dumped in law so much money from this past playoffs. Yeah that to travel to do this. All over again would be national and local amount of money to lose. No so i could see why when it happened but then i can also see why maybe some owners wanna play less games. And i don't know. I i know is going to be a ton of talk and people above our pay grade making that decision extremely above our pay grade. Yeah so i don't know i. I hope it's least sixty games. I want i want a bit of a season but then again i kind of like the idea of shortened seasons like i liked it with baseball. Not gonna lie. I'm not really a baseball fan. So you know. I didn't really watch every game and you know with a couple of fans they you know. They like the mile near the marathon that they're on the one hundred and sixty game. Fuck it is. But i liked the intensity like it's shortened season. So you know. Every game matters at that point like if they're playing a forty game season you go on a ten game wintry. You're more than likely gonna to. You know you're going to play offs so all those games are gonna matter every face off every every shift every like it's going to have like almost like an undertone of playoff hockey throughout the entire season. Yeah and it's not as bad as football where it's like sixteen games. Well well you know you look at the nfl. Every game matters literally every game matters for you getting into the playoffs. So i like that since. I like to sense of urgency. I like the regular season to have more meaning. I get it where it's like. Oh no that's how the initials men maybe games. This is how it works. This is the nhl but the idea the shortest season. I kinda like it. is this day. I don't i'm not gonna say go fifty games for here on out for the future but maybe if you cut back a couple of i mean then again. Eighty games realistically isn't that much especially when it's spread over from our like october to april. Yeah then also got thing baseball where it's like you know you got hundred six double the games in like the same days. Certainly baseball is ridiculous. One hundred percent. I think they should cut in half. Obviously they're gonna be losing out on millions and millions of dollars so they're never going to do that. Yeah and same with the nhl. They're gonna keep it the way they're going to keep it but i don't know i like the idea of more intense regular season. I don't know food for thought for them. I hope they. I hope they Scheduled meeting with me. You know i'll sit in. We'll talk with them to it's like and as far as like ticket sales go team like like the islanders. Obviously team like the rangers. They're always sell not selling out but they're always selling incredible amount of tickets. They're always going to act out blackhawks they're gonna be packed out to. The islanders. Were a lot of their games. Have lot of seats filled. No less game for them to go to less opportunities. People are gonna make you know adjustment. And i go to these games. I'm going to pack out their stadiums even more. At least i think i don't know i don't know we'll see we'll talk in our meeting. Nhl gary bettman. You can hit us up at The clapper well haven't come to the studio to my bedroom house laughing at the scratch me. Scratch my beard dude. It's each year unlimited. Grow out.

Good english second language kicking leash high end and i bought the expensive her higher under tire under one which was like twelve bucks a cigar. Which doesn't sound like a lot. But i had to buy like four of them saw like what am i doing this usually just by three dollar cigar. Yeah for everybody. Black and mild seven get some black and mild black mild shit when i was like fifteen fifteen but well exposed now but Black them out probably like twice because of my friends and i was like. Oh he's our whatever. Will i had like a couple of times when i was in high school then in college when i'd be like really drunk and i'll be like outside of my like dorm or apartment. I'd be walking just like stumbling and my one of my old remains He would always have black a for some reason to supply through dude. He was like he didn't really shower too often. And his hairs greasy. Hope he doesn't own scramming. Now follows the podcast. No no. I'm not saying it like a mean way. It sounds like a mean way but it isn't like mean just reminded me like an outdoorsy person. He was from like okay. I'll say upstate in the boonies Like of buffalo. Oh so yeah. He was out there in the woods but But yeah he would spic justin. He never really got drunk. You'd only only drink whisky and smoke weed. But so you go. Justin you wanna black and mild. I'll be like share. Yeah hey through probably please. S not listen them with it. Oh no yeah. No scary nights up there in a purchase. Yes i knew. It see memory lapse again iceland. What fucking story was. I wanna tell you all right. Well i guess we'll move on now to the six confusing teams. Where do you wanna start bud So i just went in only so. I'm pulling them up on my phone. Okay as we go. I want to the flames. Okay so. I kind of did a little mini summary of each team besides this team right here because we talk about them. Yeah we all right so anyway so the first one of the teams i. This isn't say. I one of the themes calgary flames. Okay ianna summary. That i present is they got better goaltending in marcham but they still lost pieces. They're blind into jane brody and most likely travis. Hamic right yeah. There's a little lapse there. I also think that there are lacking in their Their third and fourth line their depth is really where it should be or where it should be you know. Their tops is going to carry this team. Yeah that's really top. Six heavy team And you know and their defense carried by mark dear donahue. Who's a thirty seven year old. You got ten of coming in buddy. Well i mean yeah. According to daily face off his top tier yeah It would make sense honestly makes sense interesting. Plays against the other teams top lines on the next remember He'll tornadoes between the first and second pairing. Okay depending on that realize he was that i thought he was younger. He's thirty one. he's about to turn thirty one. I'm really wrong about him Interesting i mean he was one of the original pieces from the twenty eleven connects run. It was only alex mather on the team that were on the team last season interesting. Yeah this flames team team. Yeah they look to have a potential especially as you've mentioned the top six The bottom is definitely going to be a question mark. But i mean you get a couple of depth scoring from them you know title and i also think a big a big factor for them as if sean monahan can. Can you know be guided. You know it's He was slacking a bit last year. I don't really have a stats in front of me. But i know that he was in performing up to caliber. I mean So yeah. I don't know I think i think they're very top six reliant team especially that first line. Yeah so yeah and the goes hunting ken. Jacob mark schrimm play on a team that doesn't insulate shot attempts canucks. What they did was they allowed a lot of shots but a lot of the shots were also outside of this slot. So it's like that. Also boosts up save percentage a little bit. So can he continue this. You know who knows And can this defense against thing. Losing tj brody and most likely travis hammock. I mean maybe. I know there's talk about hammock possibly look into resigned because i know he definitely wants to stay in western canada. Yeah but there was also talk about him. Going to canucks but that kind of fizzled with What's his name coming over from vegas. Yeah ishmael fuck vegas. Yeah so. I don't know trump's hamic fury signs they're definitely gonna be in good shape. Yeah so i guess the next team he can look at as the flyers. Yes bring them up. This night. didn't write summary four Where the fuck oh So yeah we're looking on daily face off right now at the teams Again daming kinda mentioned. I believe in the beginning or that might have been the first recording. How we're also kind of this week again. It's been slow with the at the news so it's been But honestly. I liked this philly team in. Yeah they were. They were great last season. I'm honestly not surprised but it was fun. Series watching them with the versus. The islanders could easily could've advanced. I mean obviously lightning. Were just unstoppable. This season but i mean. I think they could have put up just the same fight. Maybe you know maybe just the same. I wouldn't even say better. But i don't know no definitely i. I love seem I do plan on moving affiliate some point And so if i do this team will definitely be definitely be going gonna watch. Yeah i mean you know. They've been defensively defensively. They're pretty good The third line you know they're kind of but there with haggen bron but they also have same morin who's on. I r and nolan patrick. Also on i are But yes so. I don't know they're definitely interesting even watch. They got tired of hat. Yeah say car. Heart car heart They have him in net. I mean hopefully. He can be sustainable. Y- over that season he looks good. He's watch twenty two. I think he was insane last year. Yes he fun to watch This this flyer seem as definitely team to look out for They're young team becoming Speaking of young teams. Not the seem The montreal canadians This seems so weird spleen. I really just mean weird in their contracts. I mean because what we spoke about the The brennan gallagher and shasha anderson signings. Yeah brandon gallagher. You know he's you know he's good. He's pretty good but he was shifting a banana lineup. Just like max. Domi was also lost. Mass domi true But their offense looks good on paper. Yeah i mean that the top six again is strong. You know yeah to her gallagher fully adding to this team now. Gi that's going to be interesting key suzuki. He's young and he's stud. He's a stud. He was great. Postseason anderson on the wing. There i mean you have on your third line. You've johann switch up to the top. So they're definitely they're definitely good on offense They're going to be no no shine away from scoring. I don't think from this team. Yeah definitely on. Their defense isn't too bad either shea weber on the top line shea weber. Alsi is still hanging patriot down the edmonston signing yeah and jeff petri that was a good signing as well. Yeah i mean it's it's all new. It's all new. But i think the major question mark for this team is going to be you know price sticking it. Yeah see. is he going to prove the ten million that he gets. Yes he going to go back with former glory i. I know that he was the major question. Mark going into the postseason. If i remember correctly he was definitely a question. Mark and he'll definitely continue to be one especially when you're paying nearly fifteen million dollars for your for two goaltender listening That's a lot of money tied up there. Yeah i don't know man. They're they're definitely confusing team. As far as that goes. Yeah but other than that. I think they're i think they're set. I think they're glory for glory. I think they're i think they're going to be a great team. This season a great team. I mean well. A big thing than that was mentioned in the An article is that you know they barely squeaked by the planes you know they were the twenty four team out of the twenty four to make. Yeah by think they had a lot of great signings especially on the defensive event And even addition to fully. I think what would lawson max domi. Yes i think. I think they upgraded with the fully. I don't know okay. I think this team definitely upgraded this of this post off season. Yeah they definitely upgraded. And i know i already mentioned. They can do something with goaltending but then again carey price if he comes up and he shows up big again. It's a wrap for them. I think. I think i think they're without a doubt another playoff team. This season. all right. What are your thoughts. You think they're making it I think they're bowl team. The strong you know true you bring up a valid point there You know but they could upset just like they upset the next thing. We're going to talk about The pittsburgh penguins allen. Thank god i. This team is confusing. But like i have no faith in them. Out all bold. Yeah bold. I mean sidney crosby malkin i guess you could say gansel i mean i don't. I'm still not fully sold on. Jake cancel I know that sounds very stupid of me. But i mean he's like played alongside crosby malkin you know. He hasn't really done by himself. Too much mom and their defense. I mean defense definitely in my opinion seems to be lacking. Yeah i mean like can their defense keep up with the The other teams in the league's top forward. then net. two thousand say on to you know you get rid of mount. Murray matt murray isn't he's. I'm marie hater is not good credible. But i mean he's definitely. It was definitely trista tenders risen. Jerry had a had a stretch where he's doing well but that's it's stretch you know. What do you think about ten. Well brandon tenant tennant here think is solid serviceable bottom six player. I think this. I'm like a five year deal for one point. Two million or something. I think it's three five actually. What yeah that's fucking shit. You're a six year contract. Why did i think it was so much less. Oh yeah man. I don't know that's yeah. I just seen that you go. oh man. that's that's a lot of money for bottom bottom guy. If you going to talk about mike matheson to making four point eight seven five million a year for the next five years on the bottom pair on the bottom pair. Fuck mike matheson for injuring pederson. He's a crybaby and could handle getting deked out. Fuck matheson t sift that. He has been sip now. I don't know. I hate the penguins. So i really hope they don't do anything either. But they're an older team. That's gotten sick. pass you know. So it's like. I don't know i just hate crosby. Anyway i wanna Speaking of older teams. I think we have. We have two more that are on the list. Then we have ours that we were discussing before So the chicago black. I don't know why chicago sh- kagera kagera blackhawks What's called yes. So it's their confusing over place. They are even management yet considering they said that they are rebuilding but then the team doesn't think they're revealing yeah the players don't assume that they're rebuilding They're also just like didn't they just signed the akita's of i believe right. They signed him or they traded for him who we talking about nikita zakharov on defense. He's really a good defenseman. Their second line dunk calvin. Here's a good. Islander duncan keith. No oh yeah yeah. Yeah he four point six for bottom hair. I mean well. Yeah the contract. Left's leaves a lot to be desired him. Nc taking up eleven million on bottom perr. Yeah eleven million top paid pair. Yeah i mean you know. I feel like this team. They're making more than their bottom six and it's less to be desired. You know what i mean. It's like they're definitely team. That all right i understand. You're trying to rebuild but lake. I honestly why a huge thing for you. I know i'm going to sound crazy. And you're probably gonna roast shit out of me and i'm okay with it at this point. I say hewlett qena tastes go. I was just about That's what i was thinking. It's like you're not gonna roast me. We agree we don't agree. I don't think it's feasible for them to do it. But it's like if you have some blockbuster trade you can realistically have two of them. And you to the rebuilt on the ten point. Five million cap hit for each. I think you can do it. I think that there's there's team with room right now I don't know if i could bring it up. But there's a couple teams with over ten million in room where they want be giving it to one player alley sign ova no police not now probably not but i know those teams in the in a position where they want to trade for somebody who can push well even if you look like taes has two years left on his contract So really to. If you're gonna get something the only has who then why would you want. Try trade a bunch of assets for that well because well. He added to be a team. That's going to you know it's not actually consider. Yeah and four point five million dollar rental which is ridiculous amount of money. So i guess i guess it's it's legitimately going to be impossible but and he's also going to be a free agent at thirty five years old. So it's like thirty five year old aging It's anybody who's main has a better outlook say he has two years left to and he's gonna be thirty four. They signed matching deals. I think he did i. I think this blackhawks team. If they make noise will also have goaltending they have now. Come sue ben. He's their goaltender. Yeah and even their. They're confusing team. They're they're confusing. Because it's like you have two guys like all you know I don't know i. I think they're done. I think they're done. Yeah they've definitely been done The next the last team on on his list on sean mccan dojo macondo is His list is the san jose. sharks There another team that the well. They're a team that kept getting so close in past years. Oh good to watch their phone. I mean yeah. I've always kind of like them. I don't know. I've never like a big follower of them. But i never like hated the sharks. I thought they were cool in an obviously losing a guy like thornton where he was like the face of the team. Yeah it's definitely without too much change. A new look a new look team Yeah i mean well that's the thing. Yeah and they're trying to hang on your i mean. But they stop. Brent burns and eric carlson. Yeah i get that i burns. I like him. i don't think he's hold on. Let me see. I pull up their contracts. I don't know how much he's getting paid. Damages burns paid. He's getting million or something eight million. I mean it's it's now worth a million. I don't think and eric carlson's eleven mark. Edward plastics like seven point. Five seven million. Yeah i remember a. I was just watching not watching. I was just reading another report on the athletic where they were talking about. Teams that were As far as contracts went like valley. Worst teams yeah. I forgot the exact are not worse. Contracts it was like to value the value charts. Came in dead last. yeah So they have insane contracts for some of these guys that they're not you don't want to say they're not producing but they're definitely not live up to their potential. Yeah i mean eighty million for this line here of last week and carlson. I'm an also the goaltending. I mean you know martin. Jones hasn't played up to his contract and democratic looking for a fresh. Start with the sharks. So you know. It's there's a lot of question marks team jumbo joe thornton moving over to game. You know it's like. I don't know ayla him. I mean i you let him walk. Which kinda sucks. Yeah that's hard. You coulda gone some value for him but then again imagine a team. Moving a guy like that yeah. I don't know damned if you do damned if you don't and i think they're damned for good. Doug them domed. I think i think they're a sinking ship at the bottom of the bottom of the ocean of bomblet pacific. The house can take him over. Yeah imagine then yeah. Rt that we picked. So i would honestly substitute this team in confusing for the black on not the blackhawks. I'm sorry for the flyers because fires are good team. They're a good team. I don't see them being bad. I don't think they're confusing. I think they're just in the middle of the road team who has potential to be up to the second round whereas the sabers. I feel like every year. They're kind of like the coyotes in this respect where it's like every year. Everyone says they're going to be a good team. Well you know. I'm going to say right. Now i think on paper. They're great team. They're just unproven yeah. I don't think they've had a test yet. So we were looking at this before we were a recorded and that's why we added them. Yeah i mean just look at the top sick. Not sick six. Yeah exactly. I mean the addition taylor hall definitely team. Getting hall is going to be a stall to write arkansas to are the draft season. Holy shit this offseason. What the fuck you know. Yes so the top six right now is looking like Taylor whole jack. Eichel victor olson. Let's just skinner and eric stall along with dylan cousins so Second line there. So yeah i day look great and even the bottom six. I think that they can have some contributors one of my favorite obviously being another friend. Kyle okposo. he was a great for the islanders. Even winger obviously he's had a couple of injuries and definitely in the past. 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 on sports. Dot com course nets. Yeah This is written by just so we don't get a copyrighted or anything who's by sadler's adler so good looking for this. Emily thank you. Emily some to talk about Number ten we have derek obviously a free agent of the islanders. I one hundred percent see re-signing he definitely fit. Well he definitely had good. he definitely had an impact. I would say even in the playoffs. He doubt he had a couple of goals. There he definitely you saw him. People knew who he was so heavily. Good thing on the honor team. Yeah i mean. It wasn't as good as he was when he was with the senators senators. I mean and obviously you with the rangers. Because that's what they traded for his dad they presumed to have the same values of and we see how that turned out. Yeah but yes so. I don't know His last cap hit for this past season. One point two million these getting you might be getting around one point. Five one point five million. It'd be a stretch. i think But then again for team with room and you wanna you wanna make sure you get a guy. Maybe i don't know But he's definitely going to be under two mill probably won't point five yeah Number nine is andreas authentic issue He's only twenty six. He's just had a thirty goal season and last series he had three million He was with the oilers but they didn't give him a qualifying offer to me. Especially a young winger allegedly fast winger as really fast who's score. Who's one of your removed from thirty goal season. I mean that might be steel especially for number nine on the list. He kind of went unnoticed to me. Yeah but three million needs probably gonna want an upgrade from that. I mean no matter. I mean because it's these players are all having their contract situation being dragged out so at that point though dollar values probably drop for them. They're just gonna wanna play you know so. Yeah you don't want. He might take a one year deal like two point two true a. Gimme show me deal. I i think that he has the potential to be asleep for for this for all season. Yeah sandy batman On the hurricanes. Yeah no he definitely had impact for them but he's had a lot of injuries lot of injuries and a lot big it last season. I am in my opinion. Yeah five But you know it's an he's a right handed defenseman Teams you know. He was the backup to tyson berry. Tj brody You know so. He was like the the second tier. Oh yeah before him on looking at him but he probably wants much. Yeah i think. I think he's overvaluing himself. Yeah i mean you probably wanted around four million. i'd have to say four million. That's probably what he wanted. Four million for heap. This is complete speculation. why am i speculated. I'm here. I'm like yeah. He probably probably wanted this. Like i have no knowledge of anything. I'm gonna give you want four for four like that's probably not a thing But yeah i mean. I mean he's definitely aging too so he definitely probably wants to term but i wouldn't give him happy side so yeah. Yeah so it's probably disconnect with the teams that's forcing them to be out here too long. Yeah you'll probably be a pickup by the beginning of the season next. Anthony do claire and he is so interesting You know. I feel he's up and down always Last year he he's only twenty five. He was on the ottawa senators. And he's only he's only twenty five one point six five million dollar contracts I don't know it's like i feel like because he's bounced around i think four or five teams What the rangers coyotes and senators. I think may ambu senators coyotes and rangers. I think and you know he just hasn't found a home i think. I think i read somewhere. It's about his defensive game he's not exactly a top six. Yeah he's not exactly a top six ford. He's their liner. But he's a defensive liability but he definitely puts a points especially yeah what he just had like twenty goals or something he definitely has occurred and twenty five I i think he's going to be good. Winger as you said he is definitely a good goal score liability. I even in my head was thinking. Maybe he could be fit for an island. Or i don't wanna say at a budget because he's definitely want money but if i wouldn't assume it'd be much i wouldn't assume it'd be more than three million But you should be a player agent. Yeah should give them. I just thought of a good idea sir. Yes so i mean obviously not right now. 'cause this is right on the spot but we'd take a player and i'm like the gm of the situation where i would offer them and then or the player agent what. Oh yeah. i like that idea. That's actually pretty sees idea. Let's do it for the next one. I don't even know who the next one is. Oh shit. I couldn't tell you one thing about carlson. Arizona coyotes thirty thirty five. He's coming off. I think it was like a three or four year. Deal four point seven. Tell you one thing about thinking. Signed the contract. Avalanche demonstrated the coyotes. I was right. Now is operatives scored twenty three goals But yeah he's actually really good bomb six forward. He's a good penalty killer again. I wouldn't imagine him coming north of two million I wouldn't give more than that Here definitely japanese boys. I'm just trying to look at the market. I mean but honestly a lot of the market plays on the number one person you know dominoes or i guess the top three. 'cause i for i know the second one. I saw sneak peek. But i don't know the third the fifth is eric. Khawla twenty eight. He had two point seven five million last year But he's been injured a lot. You know he's definitely getting an upgrade from his contract. Say around him getting the same. Maybe maybe three million avas matter all right. Come on now. you're in it. I mean. I you know i. I couldn't see closer. I can see closer to that. You know There's just not a lot of money out there that's the thing. There's not a lot of money out there. And then especially eric. Khawla didn't really build off of his previous seasons. You know he's coming up vegas us killing it. And then he's in florida and they went to florida. Well here really player should be able to find success anywhere well true but like also if you're on a team like vegas where you're literally a powerhouse and also i. I saw a funny clip of the spin. Chiklis podcast they were talking about the vegas flu teams traveling for the first time that yeah if you think about it. Write a team going to vegas for the first time. Of course they're gonna party. I think that's a real vantage on their home games for at least a couple of years. Yeah now definitely. I mean i remember. That was being spoken about when they first joined the league and hold up. Well you do that. I'm going to look some up. Why do white sit here. Talk about our caller. Oh yeah no fucking idea. Listen dragging my knowledge. I eric hall. I have very limited knowledge of. I think he's a third line center with Vegas no he was second. Cody achim was the third line. Ever leave and the william carlson was. I don't even remember. I think that was because he got picks up for the minnesota wild. Nobody cares about a history lesson. This is social studies The fourth one's interesting. All right you can go there So the fourth per personal solicits ilya kovalchuk Thirty six rule. He made seven hundred thousand news on the canadians and then went to the capitals Yet i don't know. I don't know why you wouldn't go after him for like nine hundred thousand a million i will go after one hundred percent You know. I don't know. I go a great goal score. Great snipe do any slow. But i mean if you're if you're getting the minimum if you're getting under a million that's fire him for men. I think he's a good plug for a team or at least a team. That's a little pressed definitely. Yuck i i would try to. Maybe i don't think you have fit him of lose image true. The one thing i'd mention i did look up was the vegas nights record at home in twenty seventeen eighteen season. They were twenty nine and ten and two And twenty eighteen twenty nineteen season number twenty four twelve five so they definitely have an advantage at home do now. Does that correlate to it. Being an advantage because vegas or does that correlate to home advantage but if you think about it like the vegas night like sure okay. Home-ice advantage right for a team like the rangers and all of them where their home and you know the fans are definitely rallying. And i don't know. I guess maybe not traveling and stuff like that. I wonder what the average is. Now see. I wish that. I thought about before you know during the week sonam kinda. That's what i'm so the boston record at homeless twenty two four and nine air boston affect philly twenty five six and four pittsburgh twenty three eight and four i okay now ice off my head i see high may make make me seem like a dick. I'm just thinking from like my like my research background. It's like vancouver was twenty two nine and four. Oh wow maybe a major effect. And i'm just not a lot of teams though. I mean vegas season twenty to eleven and four You know. I think i think the novelty vegas is kinda fallen off because the teams absolutely why where you players mention that it was definitely a factor Like few visiting players When after the first season they were in the league. I remember reading some kind of article about it about how that is actually a thing how it was the thing. I don't know if it's still persists. But yeah i definitely think the novelty of the vets are gonna fall off and then they're like. Hey listen we made that mistake to rooks do it. Especially because you think about it. Like any of the rookies. That are coming in the league. They might be under twenty one and even in canada where the drinking leads the the drinking age eighteen. They can't do it in america's so i mean they probably other ways. What am i exactly pamela hockey players. Yeah but anyway to be an nfl player man. I wish i could probably liked him. So martin had sent me. Shots martin He s sent me some something Hold on yeah look it up. Did you remember back on my on my birthday before cove it hit we were talking about possibly doing vegas trip out of it and fun. Yeah that's definitely one place. I wanna go to. While we're still young in our party or age. I don't remember what it was. I think i had replied to a story It was like. Would you rather like Win win a cup on your least favorite team or play for your favorite team with nothing. Andrew and i said when a couple my least favorite team. Because if i'm in the nhl if so a one year deal get the cup. We'll get drafted the flames. I'm trying to win cup. I don't care because at that point. That's where i separate i. Well i think that anybody would especially if you're getting to the nhl level you have like a certain level of mentality. You have a certain mentality of yeah. I'm a winner. you know then there was For her was fuck forgot. it was like. Would you like win a gold medal. Ferrier or would you represent your country or when a stanley cup or something. I think maybe i said when a cop you know. Yeah if you're in if you're in the nhl you're there to win in perspective. Oh and then it was. Would you be the aso's allen and then would you rather be a superstar art. No would you rather when a superstar and win nothing or an average player and one of the upper. Some i yeah i would totally be cool being a top six huntsman vehicle with that. I think in this in this sport. It's it's a team sport so no matter what you do whatever. You contribute as long as you're pushing in as long as you are on that team here in your valuable piece. You're winning a cup like you're going to be known as a team you know. Yeah like you. You look at teenagers. All that was a magical team the blues that one a year. Everyone's gonna look back at all as a magical team all these pieces all these people look at this guy on the third line name. One you know will exactly and then even if you're an average player still be a fan favorite yet. i mean. Look at like you've mentioned before. Matt martin matt martin like another guy for his entire career. Everyone loves him. everybody loves him. No matter what team on on the island. Yeah on toronto. For a little bit there everybody loved him. So he's that it's it's a character guy. And what i was quickly talking about before. Is you gotta look at a guy like Ho-sang on the islanders. Obviously they've had their turmoil They put him on waivers. Nobody wanted to resign him. Why did he sign a contract with islanders. After all that bullshit and after he requested a trait uae. Why why would he do that. 'cause he wants a chance at the. Nhl yeah he could. He could have taken his talents. He could have gotten money. Playing in in a league overseas. Obviously not not like four million. You've got a couple of million playing overseas instead. He was like you know what i'm gonna work. I wanna make it to an nhl team. Yeah that if you're a hockey player you gonna be an angel team. So it's obviously that mentality that displays have and wanting to win a cup and they wanna be tender like you hear all the time no matter what the sport is. I want to be contenders. Look at basketball right now. Yeah all these guys are are taken lower deals just to be on a team that's gonna be beyond be to lebron you know literally that's that's an age That's the nba or now. Yeah so definitely. I'm going to be a cup guy. I'm going to be an average bottom six guy on a cup team down with it. Yeah i'm with it. I'm with that Moving on moving on number three mob boy r.i.p which people who still with us on the islanders but travis ambani He's still in the market Again i think. I mentioned on the last episode. He definitely wants to stay western canada only because of something with his family. I think it was like family like problems like health. I think probably making that up. But i'd see owners i would assume you want to be there So it was on calgary I know that they were rumors of him at allegedly allegedly through the grapevine. Talking about vancouver. Obviously that fizzled out. Yeah nate schmidt makes on took that but at three point eight male. I don't think he can make more money. Then again. avenue really been following him Twenty nine so he's not incredibly old either. He's definitely at a good age. I think for Not a short deal but middle. I guess like maybe like a four a four year deal maybe five years four over my god. We're gonna have so much fun with this. Fucking dude is all wait. Wait thirty five. Oh why would you want to bring in thirty five. I would want to follow it. Well yeah if you're agent was helmets years at three point five three years at three point five cutting him. Yes i would say four by four. How would say four buffo. I would say five. Four or four. By four. I would i would go up to the wendy's drive. Can i get the four four. Can i get crispy chicken junior sandwich at the full full. And that's what you're going to give hamic for four. If he goes for four for four. I'm going to. I don't even know what but i'm gonna tech in it happens and he's going for four three for three point five three i. I want to remember this. I know i'm not but three four by four ways so wait what we can do to is like since there won't be any like signings during the season we can go for like people who are going to be free agents too. Yeah we definitely do that. All guys a witness greatness. This is about an awesome segment. We need more coming on him with it or name for it. A special name mckell grantland interesting number two number. You almost there. He got really. He struggled this year with the predators coming from minnesota. He played really well minnesota They traded him straight up. I believe for kevin fiala And the now is looking kind of weird for gremlin. He was making five point seven five. I think he might get around. I don't know man. I don't know what i would offer him honestly I mean he's he had a fine sat line but not worth five point seven five. I would say. Give them something to give them. Yeah like a one year deal one two year most men and probably around the same. He's probably gonna want more but then again he's been kind of slacking. The markets kind of a little bit of a cut. Yeah i can imagine getting more might wall more around that he could get it. Yeah especially in this market. I i couldn't tell you. I'm a player guy but five point seven five man. I don't think so. Thank you damien and we got the last last but not least i think everybody listening assume oh my god so i don't know if we're going to cut that out cut it out. Sounds like using dogs. We're really not dog. I have a pit bull and he'd heard his back. Paul and actually my sister just texted me that she's coming home so the dogs are going to be excited. Should come in. Come in stay down stairs gonna be quiet but Again he heard his back pau. I don't know what exactly happened. But he's excited anything. No i tried to look. You won't even let me look at us pau. I think my mom looked at. She knows what's going on with him. But i don't know that he definitely ran down the stairs just now just crying. I feel really bad for the poor guy. He's crazy as you know. I don't know if any well if anybody knows a pit bull whose hyperactive he literally like somebody comes over here. He's a friendly dog in the world as matt friendly. We'll never be mean anybody. But he's jumping on your trying and say hi. I know excited running around. He had to me this tennis ball in his mouth and he was honking my knee. He's he's so dumb. Just bump it in everybody but Pets poor little man is hurt right. now he's going through it with his back paws so hopefully He stops running down the stairs so he cries go fund me started a gofundme for surgery just replacing pau replaces full of like a fucking eagles posh anyway. So yeah i was tension. Anything said about damian said about my kaufman honestly. i didn't even get that far off. Okay cool Bmi coffin man He's making five point one almost five point to He had almost thirty goals. You know he's a he's a. He's twenty five goal scorer He plays really well on the power. Play you know is really good on the like basically of veterans office but on the opposite side At least twenty five score hit thirty six years the year before last year I think that around five point two is a good five million of five to five point. Five is probably where it's definitely going to get increased pro. I get what you're saying wouldn't get an increase. I get what you're saying that a little bit of down near six million final offer. No six million. No all right. That's where i walk away as gm especially in this market. Why do you think he's signing. He only one year deal. He only wants a one or two year deal. I get everybody in. The beginning was like thirteen teams. Want this guy. Thirteen teams right. I get a lot of teams. No robert hooper told. The athletic thirteen clubs have shown interest. Say names five or six of them series. So if they're sixteen serious you gotta pay six million. That's my final offer. So it's like here's my thing though. And i'm not saying that i am not no but it's like shown interest what does that mean in the nhl. You know it's like that means just like simply calling him to be like yo what are what are you asking for. And then does that qualify shown interest. Because i love you like of course the agents going to hype it up. He's thirteen hundred. That's what i'm saying. Probably seven teams. Call them five teams. Call him religion but i get it cash-strapped but he i but again it's gonna be short term. It's going to be a year too. You're gonna have to pay him a little bit once a year. Five point four. He wants a year five point. Four six oh so now. You went up because he was getting million by wanted. Five point four. he's against six million. I want my respect. He's three nine five now. You're going down each time. You say six. I'm dropping five thousand. Listen i called that. don't go. Six million clapper is what did i do. Remember five point four or something. I don't know listen for point. Three nine then listen to these yet all right well. That's it for this list. I guess that's a good preview of are all we need to offer something. He's come up with a name for that segment. That's gonna be fun. Yeah i know we come up with a name. We'll couple of hold promo for home to. We're taking our break for season one. But i'm gonna shit listeners. Right now that season too. I take it to a different level. Yes own upgrade us. So we're going to at least take a At least a one week break Next week maybe it might be another week after that depending on how things go in the league i guess it really depends on what we're going to keep a close year-by-year will week by week. Wherever you're here it won't be longer than two weeks so h shouldn't be and again we'll start season to a will consider season two and You know we'll definitely look to upgrade some things and if you guys have anything you do want us to talk about on her way back you know where to find us Justin welcome to the spelling bee for last time is thing on.

Hilary Knight of the PWHPA & Team USA

"From the north peach podcast company in partnership with esn. Welcome to episode twelve of season two of the rain. Greg occupied gas garin gregor long. My good friend ray for ireland. We missed it episode. Eleven and up episode normally. What we break because we banter about our lives beginning to podcasts. The end of the podcast sure. Maybe because we had so many headlines to get to last week didn't acknowledge this. We've got another busy week of headlines coming up shortly but had a glorious moment ten days ago and it actually wasn't a moment it was an experience and you know what that experience was. I hesitate to guess. I got a haircut. I got a haircut. Where hardware store. Wow i can see the volume has been brought back down. You were getting a little q tip ish See that's that. That's you know. I look at mark. Berge valley look at some of the guys around the national hockey league. Right who got the flow going and i mean it's in the pandemic. What are you gonna do you. We don't have the freedoms of going to the salon and getting a haircut. That's just kind of wait. Is and you know. James dot these. Sheryl god love the woman lovely lady. She's gotta stop cutting his hair his. It's ridiculous and then. I'm looking at mark berge and he's got some flow and i'm looking at guys around the nhl named gut the flow. And i'm envious. I've got a hair envy as do you. Of course. Of course. I do but mine. You're you're right. I get the flow. Mine just goes poof. It's like a chia pet. See cami cuts my hair get trimmer little buzzer on their jobs. I think sometimes she does. It should not even paying attention. But how would you know. There's really it. Can't you can't really mess this up but it does look. It does look a lot more tidy. The one thing i will say it. It looks tight here and less gray really. It was starting to get way gray. Did you watch the sopranos right. Yeah yeah yeah you not that bad. Who's the guy. Paul walnuts he had the white walls. yeah honestly. I've had that reoccurring caller dream. I kind of think of it as a nightmare of waking up one morning and look in the mirror. And i got the white walls will tell ya. It's i mean it's common. It's at see i have a different dream. I wake up and there's even have you ever dream of your teeth falling out. I mean it's a nightmare. Just it's anxiety. nightmare. I really followed. Drags these teeth. I mean i've been hitting the face with sticks and parks and we call these trail tease. They never followed tie domi. They're made out of wood. Oh they're not. I don't know what it is. They just don't they don't follow all right. Wanna get the headlines. Jump on cooking today my friend so the toronto maple leafs sweep the edmonton honors. Three three-game set decisively in a mini series. They outscore them. Thirteen to one zero points in this series for connor mcdavid now zero points. Ross mattheus even though matthews only played the one game so when you analyze that series does it tell you more about the evidence oilers or does it tell you more about where the toronto maple leafs are right. Why i think it. It establishes the toronto that much better than than everybody else in the division as of march the fourth like. There's there's really no comparison. I mean they. They took a team that was. I believe eleven in two in their previous thirteen games and they just dismantled them. They i mean they leon draisaitl and connor mcdavid. Don't have a point They didn't even really as a team. Stressed toronto goalie. The toronto police three goals in this series and all of them look like all stars. By the time. It's finished where i was. I was surprise. They took them apart like that. But i i think this you know it tells us that edmonton ran over a bunch of teams. That are as good is toronto either but it also tells me that when you're playing teams multiple times you gotta be careful how you evaluate either of those teams right. Because that's a week in time. And that i mean if you play montreal early in the season they stampeded overtop and now montreal cat score among other issues right now. But you're like same team two different times in the schedule. Toronto was done this though at eighteen. Four and one. They've done this the whole year. I can remember one really bad game. And it was twenty two minutes of a right game against ottawa. We're up five one then. They took a nap in lhasa game. But other than that. They've been outstanding. I it'd be caught on twitter. We're recording a podcast episode. Twelve here on thursday. Rob toots goski. I get rob teach goski and edmonson is beat reporter there. i like. His work is a funny funny guy. I i find him quite funny on social media as well leon draisaitl didn't find him quite s humorous postgame. Did you see the game will. Yep now now. I saw the tail end of it. I didn't hear the first question until this morning right were dry side. Gave a pretty tight answer to rob service question so this is one thing. It's so interesting. I can easily see both sides of this because i've sat on both chairs unions to be that by an i speak from experience when i say that i was in a couple of scrums with you and i never you intimidated me and scrums. Let's be fair. I don't know if i ever visit my height healy's dare like you're just like when sherzer anyway so i just a couple of exchanges that that i recall with you scrums. So i get that china cutting sarcasm wit so you appreciate is. I cut you off. You appreciate where leon rice was coming from with. His aren't gas. Yes so but this is what. I what i know is so the reporters all identify themselves on zoom call. Of course it's different when you're standing in the scrum you can actually see the guy but you're in tentacles up with certain people right away and so you know the the things we find funny about rob in the way that rob i attacks them quite frequently man i think he's sharpened funding idea. I text him and say man that one made me laugh and that probably doesn't go over as well with the players and so when the first question is asked and i don't really remember how it was framed that basically nobody scored in three games kind of thing. I i would assume draisaitl panic goes up a little bit sir and so you give. I'm not giving you a long answer. I'm not going to get into doing because the third question of it after his. No this was really great. I enjoyed not scoring. The next question was ryan shaw and he gave quite a lengthy answer so it caught him at the wrong time. Maybe it was the wrong guy asking the wrong question a time that you know may or made him agitated. I get it. But i get the second question from rob do. Is that in zoom. You only get a certain amount of time to ask a question. So he was pissed off. Yeah and so. He said speaking not good enough basically so they had a little knock a coconuts together there and today's the next day now. All right let's go down the highway. Alberta to calgary where the flames need something. Real good to happen in raiders. You know lots of understandable speculation. That jeff word anomaly on ossete. But he's on thin ice. Use it any adjective or cliche. You want which surprised me a little bit because bradsher loving has been general manager for seven years and i believe or his fourth coach so i don't think he wants to chew through another one. They have been remarkably inconsistent united. A an ottawa. Calgary game last saturday afternoon and they look good. I mean goudreau was was flying back when was engaged. Matthew chuck was a difference maker in that game and then they followed up with an absolute clunker which fuels more speculation than speculation. Suggested a cultural issue. There's something in that room that isn't right. I mean you a deal by it number one and number two. What does that even mean. Okay so i'll start with. The fact of the matter is that they've been unbelievably as you mentioned inconsistent all season and that game that they played the the day the clunker that was her ninth game and fifteen days of eventually. The fact act is you're gonna get worn down you're gonna have ups and downs. So that's that's the fact. There's another fact. Is that when. Jacob marks from got hurt. David riddick had to take over in goal. He gave up eleven goals in two and a half games in ottawa. Won from outside the blue line one. He turned over behind the played. One good game and he was a mass. Any other to goudreau has gone quiet again. He's got no goals in his last. Eight games got nine on the year but not in his last eight sean hands or number one center. He's got tools and seventeen games where he doesn't move the needle enough to be your top line center so i think this team should be better drinks. I'm i'm unfailing in my view of that. However i'm really quite surprised and disappointed at the way that they've played you ask about the culture while i mean cultures hard to define. Except it's kinda everything it's it's your work it's like are you together in this or guys poland in directions. It's focus pretty clearly. They didn't have their focus In game three of that series or warmth look like a beer league team. They had two guys run together outside the blue line. Goudreau shot of puck off. Mono- hands head lucia trip than fell in the corner like they look like i look chaotic in there like desperation to not fail. They're always behind and so all of that stuff that the culture that commitment the focused togetherness just it should be better than it is. Because i think calories a good team and they're just not right now in their ten eleven into their rate near the bottom and goals for like. It's it's really surprising. I i just think they should be better at this law right. Well more carnage in montreal. you cannot be critical mark. Burgenland suggests that he just likes to stay calm and just go bucks man. He was the most aggressive general manager in the offseason recognizing so many concerns that he had with makeup of his roster. They have a brilliant ten games. Start in the wheels. Start law before falling off which leads to the firing of glow. Julia and kirk muller and then on tuesday in a strange scenario mark wall says up to stefan. Wait the goalie coach for the montreal. Canadians during the second period or intermission says oh by the way. You're fired you know in game. Fires has goalie joe jr according to berge and according to carey price they did not have a conversation prior to the dismissal of stefan. Wait about the potential of a goalie coach. Jim now as we know it. Sean burke director director of goaltending for the montreal canadians. This just has weird slapped all over one thousand. It was a strange strange deal so he goes ahead and fires. Julian which. I mean you could see there was some. There is some signs they're talking about you know. There's a heavy energy around the team that came from shea. Weber paraphrasing that that Cool but you know julia. Ed made a couple of comments that in my mind sort of separated himself from the team. We tell the guys don't take penalties. We tell them they'll shoot the puck gorlic. Last they still do it. You know and so it was kind of a weird scenario. So they fire the coach. The goalie coach was interesting to me stefan weight because him and price of work together a long time berge did an interview yesterday and he talked quite extensively about it. In one of the things he mentioned was the pattern of prices. Play over the last little bit now. That bubble is what we remember of carey price of. You know the heyday of price. Where it was just the best goalie in the game and there was no debating it and further. I don't know what the ten or twelve games they played in a bubble. He was amazing but go back to last year. Go back to the year before and it wasn't there was always some big sways some ups and downs so clearly they they saw this start to the year and said we got to do something different. I would find it to be even more odd. It's not a goaltender Coach to the with the reputation that shawn burr cast for basically reclamation projects. He himself was a reclamation project. Back in the day. Berkey was a good goalie but the wheels were off for him and he found some help in with his game and had the results late in his career. Devon dude nick ilya. Y'all off. Mike schmidt mike smith they all took major jumps under under burks tutelage. And they think that this can work again all right. 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 turn it. They're they're tough spot there but this this is going to hand poorly because it it seems as though kruger's answers. Yeah definitely looks that way all right. Let's wrap up headlines making way for hillary knight who's joining us episode or a twelve of the raindrops hockey podcast. We're going to wrap up with a positive story. And hey by the way. There are other divisions right right the nhl suite of we keep hearing about that the other divisions and so it should be surprised to know on the tampa bay lightning of runoff time. The recording five straight wins. There are now seven points back for the toronto. Maple leafs for the league lead. But they've got four games in hand on the toronto maple leaves so it's so hard to defend as we know but you know when you look at the tampa bay lightning. It's it's plausible. It's more than plausible. It's believable that provided they stay healthy rate you say that about any of the contending teams but the tampa bay lightning seemed to have the same swagger that they had you know going into return. Yeah what i find interesting about this. Drake's there's two teams in toronto and tampa that at one point. Were a boat. And i liked it offense and flow and scale and they both came to this realization tampa because he got kicked into chops by columbus and swept in four games and toronto. Maybe because they kept losing to tampa in boston. All the time was that we've got to find a little more firmness to our game and it's not a boat that they need to fight a lot. Campus fight they went and got some bigger stronger heavier players and they mix them in with the skill of you know the data accumulated so. I'm looking at the tampa. I'm looking at tampa right now. And they were just running roughshod Over over most of that central division. You don't like you but you look at it and you're like so what we were hearing a lot about. You know. toronto beating up on a week Northern division dallas is a mess right. Now yeah detroit. Not good nashville is is been a disaster really columbus you know. They just finally one but they lost five straight. Chicago's kind of a rebuilding team yet. They'd got twenty points tampa tampa temperatures better than than everybody. Carolina and florida had outstanding starts. I'm really interested in florida for real this year. like this. you know they're thirteen four and four. They're they're off to a really noteworthy start but tampa has got three straight shutouts for vassil ascii. Like three straight. He hasn't given up a goal in two weeks. That's kinda hard to believe don't forget they don't have nikita kucherov feed. Yeah they get seventy one goals in twenty games and they don't have nikita kucherov really good team. It's going to feel like you know we talk about this. On annual basis especially especially with star players like kucherov gonna feel like an unbelievable trade when this guy is healthy again and up to speed gun back into that lineup. all don't end drake know what will have we. We marquette down for episode. Maybe twenty two yeah or soul when kucherov does come back and the uproar that they ditched on long-term injury reserve all season to get surgery and he comes back with no cap hit for the plan that i don't know i'm gonna guess it's episode twenty two maybe market. But it's coming up all right. Well we'll have to check it out. Injury update we throat punch coming up. Ask rain anything around the corner as well but our interview today with hillary night is brought to you by our friends at cu dot. Chris from cool belt will join us a little bit later. We'll talk about the latest odds news. Remember you've got to be nineteen and cool bet reminds you stay cool all while. We're pleased to be joined by hillary night one of the many stars and the w. h. And hillary you're here on the raindrops. Podcast talk with the dream gap tour one citing tour. That is especially when you kick off last weekend in the fashion that you did. Addison square garden in new york. One of the exciting opportunity for all the great women of the sport to use their skills. Yeah we're excited at. I'm sorry we couldn't have an easier. Acronym i obviously mumbled to the pow hp but no it's. it's it's phenomenal. We had year one last year. And really what we set out to do. Is we had a collection of players. And we're like we are amazingly good and talented but we continue to have this gap between having the adequate resources to train Programming to compete outside of the national teams and then to the visibility issue is only discover women's soccer before year. So how do we. How do we kinda juggle all this and and put together something. So that's where the dream gap tour began and in your to now he's got an amazing roster of you know brands and corporations that want to be a of it and we've renamed it to the secret gap tour but to play at madison square garden. I mean the venue. Just it speaks for itself so to make history. There was phenomenal. And we're really looking forward to the united center. Come this weekend you you talk about all the the extra attention sponsors and talk a little bit about what. Maybe the forerunner of the women's sporting movement billie jean king getting involved supporting and giving direction to all all you talented athletes. That were kind of looking for that direction. I think anyway talkable building. Yeah I mean billie jean's the go right grace of all time She she did in tennis And it just it it transcended tennis specifically right it. We saw it across all industries pushing for more equity in sport. And honestly i think she was one of the first calls Look like we just had this league fold There's something right now. But but it's not the sustainable. It's not what we're looking for as players you know. How do we navigate. the upcoming You know terrain. And to have billie jean king sign up in her group and women's sports foundation into sensually guide us through this time of uncertainty. Is it speaks volumes to what she's done in sports and outside of sports but then also her her legacy in what she continues to do to to try and facilitate change have a positive impact in. Obviously this word of ice hockey right now but other sports as well hillary twenty years ago cami. Of course you know my my my wife she. They were in this battle for recognition for acceptance twenty years ago and i saw the frustration because it just never went anywhere nobody nobody would sink their hooks into it. Nobody would buy in they. Would i think the moment for me. When i realized the commitment that the female athlete had was when we were in the gym. And i realized she was trained in rats off the same way i was but she had the love the game more than i did because there was nowhere else to play it feels to me like there's momentum that can't be stopped does it feel like that for you. It does In i joke around. I'm like i don't know if the planets are aligning or what's going on but You know it took us some time. And we're obviously standing on Cammy among other teammates shoulders to You know build this new future right and we're just one more piece in the puzzle forward but if feels like we're finally things are coming together at the right time and we're finally getting the recognition visibility The resources that we need to one perform and then to do this more so as a full-time full-time gig 'cause a lot of my teammates. Who aren't on either national teamer at european national team You know they have to do two or three other jobs or give lessons at the local hockey rate just to be able to wake up and train with us so What we're really looking forward is to change the sport but not just for the next future and grab a couple of million dollars but for for many many decades to come so We haven't had the platform but thankfully people like cami have built have built part of that platform for us to stand on so it's You know i think at sometimes. You're just like i'm just another one sport forward but what we're doing today is extremely significant and We're fortunate for the pioneers that came before us. I i thought was really cool. The game on sunday. So i i came in riley. My older guy was at soccer. I came in. It was in the middle of the second period. And i watch like three or four minutes as i was changing You know like the sit down. And i'm like it just looks like another game. Yeah like like it. And i hope that comes across like the positive way i mean it. I'm like it should be on tv. The game was great. It was it looked like another game. That i've been watching. Is that what. It's starting to feel like when you go play. Yeah yeah. I think before. There's this disconnect rate and all this misnomers of like what is women's hockey and you know they're women are not as fast or not this or not that and You know. I was actually looking through the other day and i was like. That's that's a set goal scored that thinking like you know it was one of the guys are clips aren't on social media as actively as their they play more games and I think it was like brand deckers long like oh yeah like i. Was there a front seat. Unfortunately but That's what it's doing right. We're really grabbing that visibility component and connecting and making this connections now and now that we have more. Nhl clubs interested in seeing what we're doing in our products high end. I mean the sky's the limit for us. So it's really exciting. How far away are you guys. Do you think from bringing both sides of this together. Because i think everybody realizes there's really only one road forward has to be one league. There can't be two different things going on now. The the n. Whol played up at lake. Placid like what were you. What was the pow. Hp thinking as that was going on That's question one question two. It's the dream got tour to me is another astounding part is. This doesn't include any canadians or europeans. Because of the travel issues yet people are supportive of the women's sport. There like women's hockey is awesome. Why we it. So how do those things fit together. Yeah well it's interesting. I do agree. I think you need one League that's the premier league rate There's always refer other facets of different levels for sure but One of the things that we've always prided ourselves on our skill level and the caliber of player that we have involved in our organization were player. Lead player driven but we have the best players in the world And i think that's a big differentiator for us and You know you want the best players in the world on tv rate And you want them to be able to create this ticket so You know regardless of national teams when a professional hockey game is on tv that you're going to get the big numbers and you're going to get the big engagement And brands and partnerships in clubs are going to be happy with the so i think You know sometimes you feel like uh specifically we feel like our genders online a lot of the times because we're trying to prove that we're good enough even though we we are good enough that products there But you want to make sure that you're delivering it in the right way in the most professional way as possible and Yeah i mean in two to go off the global pandemic front. We're not able to cross the border right so that also adds another fold of complications. And you know we had a phenomenal plan Looking to this year and we've gone to cd efg an our. You know we're back in the later part of the alphabet but to be able to host these games whether that's at the garden or at the united center and you know another couple. Tvd hopefully coming through Is but yes. I do wish that we could get the canadians involved. In in the lifted when the time comes but To have an interest in canada right now for these us hubs in the regions playing is outstanding. How difficult has it been to train. Bolt more mentally then physically than with no defined or season starts here just recently that it seems like the women's world is a goal as it should be but that that becomes like a focal point as opposed to just work out because gee i should be working so hard You know when you when everything hit and it became way more serious than i think. Any of us Really anticipated and world's cancelled. Nhl's cancelled mba's can't everyone's getting cancelled You're saying they're scratching. I'd be like oh my gosh you know. When's our next touch point. And i think that's the hardest thing is you know we're so dialed into our structure. Our schedules were creatures of habit and to not have that rhythm of schedule or that consistency of touch point To not be able to train with other people on the ice or to have it just us in our own silos all over the country. It's really difficult. So we did our best to arrange virtual training sessions on zoom. But they don't replace the real thing right so we're all in it to some extent to the same in the same boat but Yeah i mean not having that touch point of being able to read the body. Language create that chemistry with teammates has been the most difficult part of this process and then mentally be. I don't know in the next time is but whenever that next time is i have to be ready for the opportunity so that actually became more stressful as we got later into summer and fall. Because that's usually when you're gearing up to start a season you don't know when you're gonna play a game again now. You're only thirty one. I mean you're in the prime of your career here so i'm not trying to cut your playing career short anyway and asking this question but if you give some thought about what your future might be hockey at. Coaching is it management. And if the answer is yes then. Why can't that be in the national hockey. Yeah no i would love to stay in the sport. I don't think i'd be a very good coach. So isn't it funny. Some people know they'd be a good coach. Others are like it's not for me and everyone's like oh you'd be a great question. No i really wouldn't really articulate like how to shoot a park or to do these things would drill records sometimes. See that means you are that you're you're you're a creeper back in the line right. I go third. I usually try to go. And then i turned to my teammate. After they've drawn it up. Okay give me the spark notes version. What are we right. Some guys some guys and girls gonna to get their first job. They know the drill or they don't but they still got to go. I i was always slide back. I'll let them go coach. My blood louis. Coaching its management. That you'll do. Yeah no i think it'd be awesome to get the experience to pursue a career path in management in i think one of my ultimate ultimate lake lofty goals with to be put together an ownership group in all all women's ownership group to own one of these teams both men the women's side. That would be the dream. Us will see hanoi. I gotta make a few more dollars and this career path isn't pay me enough to to get there right now. But i'm you know. I'm confident that with the right experience and all the other things that we're doing off the ice you know being a part of the pow hba learning all these other facets business and in other industries. It's been a great learning experience. The hopefully those skill sets fly. Back to billie jean king for a moment her part of her address or speech and communication to you guys. Is you know women have been conditioned to take the crumbs. Don't want to crawl. Yeah we'll be talking about the crumbs. There is a club right. Somebody else can have the crops so now so now you're between games here. What is your what are your weeks like between msg and the united center. You're pretty busy. Of course yeah honestly. We went back to the drawing board. Kind of you know. We made some big errors hopping on the ice and playing together for a while so Trying to iron those things out this week and Approaching chicago this weekend. I mean we're excited. We've actually got a good chunk of players from the chicago area so it's gonna be great to be back home in play not in front of fans playing our hometown so Yeah it's We want we technically one last weekend but we lost last game. It didn't feel like we want. So i think we've got a little chip on our shoulder going into the next okay so i had to catch up to the scoring thing too. Yeah which is pretty cool. Yeah and so. It's supposed to be different. It's supposed to be interesting. I found it. I think that's a really cool way to go about it yet. No him up with that So now is Jayna hefford and then you know obviously advisors and the combination of the board. But we didn't necessarily know how many secret jim got tour stops. We could have so if we hadn't even number that was going to be an issue especially with the prize pot So trying to have a creative problem solver to to not knowing the number of games turned out to be a really unique feature. And i remember our coaches like you know. Give give the puck. We want to get her a hat trick. Like cheese like collegiate chill and the senate right and he's having her flight. I'm like let's going on. And then i was like. Oh man that's right like we get an extra point and she gives a hat trick. Roy moving and then we could pulled our goalie. I think The second game At the garden we didn't want to because then the escort differential would have been to quote right so yeah all these little nuances that you know. So that's why you're third hillary. That's why you're third in line faculty so you've said coaching probably isn't for you. You're more on the management side of things or better yet ownership more and more hillary women are popping up in hockey operations around the national. I make almost on a month by month basis. But how long are we seriously from a woman having a primary rule in coaching on the bench. Whatever can't be that far away. I don't think we're that far You know it just takes an opportunity right So and i think we've had that sort of synergy of grabbing a lot of the mail coaches bring him into the women's side which has been great. And i think i think think the opposite is going to happen Some the women's Coaches are going to go coach on the side. so it's wonderful. I think before we looked at it and just thinking if the ratio of the female coaches at the collegiate level in wine have more women in the coaching positions So having emphasis on that would be important as before but then also get that experience and you just need an opportunity to mentor to be able to kind of show you the the road and you learn a lot that way. But i don't think we're too far off at all. It's off well really mean a will be one of which one of your teammates is a coach like when you when i'll give you an example when when we were in hartford Playing one hundred years ago. Ron francis looked like a manager. He just seemed like he was going to be any. Is dave tippett. Looked like a coach. Like you know how you can just picture one of your teammates. Who is the coach. Oh boy well we. This is a difficult. So brand actually. Currently is a coach. She coaches. are you eighteen. Us program but not her Probably kelly panic. She likes to break. You can just. You can just see it right. Yeah you know down in the analytic brand. I'm just like okay cool. This is how i feel over here on the power play. Feed it over here. That's awesome hillary. Well you got a lot going on. Obviously with dream gap to her so Thanks for taking. Time to join rain. Ryan i on the raindrops podcasts. And all of us move forward. Yeah thanks to the by going to challenge you guys so thank you great to see hillary all the best day. Yeah thanks what a great guest hillary night and raise. You're asking the question then. You were talking watching sunday's game from madison square garden. I think you described it perfectly right. It's that it was a game. I mean we. You walk by television at any point any night with a condensed. Nhl schedule and yeah. You're paying attention to another division game outside of the canadian division. But you'll watch it. Okay i get the gist of that game game. This was exactly right. I mean it could have been an nhl game just based on the quality of play. And i think that's. I think that's really important is that hillary made mention of it really quickly but the there always seems to be this comparison old but the men are bigger. The men shoot the puck heart. There is no comparison to be made. It doesn't matter what. The comparison is is the quality of hockey entertaining. And i don't think there's anyone that could say oh my god. These women aren't fantastic players. She also made mention. They haven't been on the ice very much right like they're they haven't had access to get on the ice. I thought they put on an amazing showing. You know what the next game is going to be the same and when this becomes a league. 'cause you have to add so we're watching forty players. They're right that's just forty. There's hundreds more that are of that quality. Either canada the united states in europe. And what whatever. This league is going to be cold when eventually it gets off the ground. Because i don't think there's any any denying that it's gonna look like that and you're going to you know what that's a good game. I'm going to sit and watch it. They've made incredible strides in the depth of their game. Twenty years ago. I was watching cami. Play excuse me. I'm watching the girls now. And it's like watching us play twenty years ago versus the guys now growth has been exponential and it's great stuff and i thought she was awesome. She was an awesome guest. And she's funny she's got great personality and I'm glad this the secret dream. Gap tour is has gone off his wall as it has and will continue to do so concerned throat punch with so. Stop for an episode eleven. Because you started. I and we've got a made a pact have we not. We don't always have to have the throat punch. Even though you know the fans of ray andrey love they love the but it has to be organic and it has to be real. We don't make this stuff up right and we don't want to search for at drake now. I don't want to search for it. No okay so you start us off. Who's your throat punch candidate. This with one of my yearly rants probably did this last year. But i'm gonna do it again in pure we'll do it next year and that's the goalie interference crop okay. I can't stand it. I hate when goal goes in and we're looking at the replay and everybody's kind of wondering the are waiting as they're looking at the video to hear from their video coach like eight assists okay. Should we challenge the problem. That i have with the will is this. It's the most important area on the ice right. The goal crease. That's right a lot of the goals. Come from we've all like. I think to have a pretty definitive rule about what is or what isn't goalie interference. After all this time it's still a gut feel rule. I mean i understand the ruling in the wording. The goal has to be able to freely play his position. What exactly does that me. And i'll give you two examples. Brendan gallagher rape before. Julian has fired bumps into matt. Murray murray doesn't even really try to get back up. Try to reset puck puddles by it's in the net. It should be the winning goal. It's waved off. Noble next night calgary in toronto william knee landers scores in the last minute in a tie the game. It looks like a people waiting at a bus. Stop inside the crease david. Riddick's pushed way back in the net. Everybody's flailing away at it. I look at these two plays. And i'm like it's too easy to argue the other side of the play which whichever the ruling was. It's too easy to argue the other side and that. I'd like to throw punch that rule because i hate it. I love the international rule. Which basically you can go through the crease. They changed that. But you cannot post up in the crease. And if you do the whistle blown in the face off goes outside the line so before any of that mess happens the place. Already get yeah. I think it's a better rule. Excellent throat punch. What do you got. Drake's you were actually advertising For for help yeah. I'm curious well. I was because i i don't normally like to go after video odds right but i feel like there to deserving and i will settle on one So the debate for me and my tiny little pea brain was between austin lots of the ottawa. Senators and alex ovechkin washington caps watson hidden. Jonathan durant from behind. I mean. I guess you could throw a bunch of the referees for not calling in penalty because it was clearly a missed penalty right just a dangerous unnecessary disrespectful plate that trump to though by ovechkin 's spirit of the gonads Friendlier and yes. I'm choosing to throw poncho v. Because i wanted to use the word gone. Adds it issues. Underused word and i. I feel like you could say you could sort of see. You're doing the leafs game with gordon. Muller and jake muslim blocks a slapshot takes it right in the goal nets. Are you going to say that. No i will not say that. I'm trying to think what i would say pills you see. I think you could see that. I don't know if i can. You say oh i take a junk. Yeah yeah trans- are you say midsection or alyosha. You don't have to say anything more than out right. Okay but just so ridiculous. Though when you first of all ovechkin shouldn't have been fined. He should have been suspended agreed. Agreed secondly i don't know why when i when we were playing. It's you know somebody would get hit and they'd come back to the bench and they'd be like all you know. Yeah and you know how it feels that you know it sucks and you'd start to gain them. I don't know why that's funny but it just is but there's a huge difference here right if if you look at the referees are and you know that you're not being watched and you tap somebody you know. Just give them a little tap. I mean of course it hurts but you do because you get you get away with it. You're just trying to get under. Somebody's skin that your plan right was. This was vicious malicious. Call them whatever i mean. He didn't wanna fight trip. Frederick and i understand that even though. He's a tough dude right now he. He can throw him but he dismisses the fight. Clearly this kid is under his skin than he does that. So they're alex. Ovechkin my throat punch in episode twelfths all right time for a weekly cap with chris. Abbott from kubat dot. Co it seems a little premature to be talking about stanley cup odds but i guess it's not i mean we're approaching. Some clubs are approaching. The halfway mark of fifty six game regular season schedule. Saw throw out some stanley cup. Odds for us today chris. Yup for sure I mean nothing really surprising. I don't think the tampa bay lightning. Our last release were the stanley cup. Favourite at plus seven hundred so seven to one odds Colorado right behind them at seven and a half to one and then you had the leafs in third at nine to one and and i know we're we're biased to the canadian teams in the north division. But i think if you can get in on them at nine to one right now. That's not bad ray. Who betting on. You're putting money around right. Our you're putting money on the tampa bay lightning or you believe in what you're seeing in this toronto maple leafs. I like the way. Toronto's blaine right now and what scares me. Tampa only as nobody ever seems to repeat anymore like it just seems impossible somewhere. There's a pothole. That's the only thing that makes me wonder because don't forget tampa is doing this and they don't have nikita kucherov right so chris halloween. Also how do you. How do you guys. How do you guys set the when you're setting aligns because the teams are playing against each other. That's gotta be a bigger challenge to well. It's actually Peek behind the curtain. It's a huge exposure of risk for our oddsmakers. Because you're right Like i look at a team like carolina to one right now. Maybe they're the best of the bunch. I don't know when you know when they've got a fully healthy roster so i think from a sportsbooks perspective. It's really really hard. And you're going on what you believe these teams to be and what you think might happen if they get to the semi finals or you know so The there's there's definitely some long shots that could sneak in there too. You've got Islanders team one to one you know. They played playoff hockey fifty six games. The air the blues are still a long shot. We don't talk a lot about the teams out west especially here in canada album. We're not playing them now at all. So you know those are some teams that stand out to me and in a little bit shorter odds. You've got the bruins who at nine to one and vegas at nine to one as well who you know. I i don't know about you guys. But when i'm looking at these bets i try and find teams. That are really really annoying in hard to play against. Those are the ones that usually have success in the playoffs. And that's why you know a carolina a boston And even vegas to a certain degree. Stand out to me all right. Let's switch over to curling You're a big guy. I know the signed scotland hearts. My favorite major curling event is the upcoming brier. Now current is good for cool bet dot. he'll right. scott were huge. So do you expect from the brier. I hope so. I mean i do know that You know the the men's tournament looks to be a little more competitive. I think you had you know three ish. Maybe fourteen separate themselves You know seven eight nine teams. That could all realistically have a shot at the brier. So that should lead to some more some more I guess some bets on both sides of the ledger whereas at scott as we saw a lot of the favorites getting all the action so Yeah we're really looking forward to brag gesu defending champion from st john's team canada. He's the betting favourite and then brad jacobs from northern ontario One of the interesting things we've seen early though is aligned movement on kevin kelly who this is how deep the field is. The guy is is one of the best ever and. He's a wildcard team at this tournament. So we've seen we've seen a lot of bets on him. I think he opened around five to one a now down to about three to one. We'll drake's was talking earlier about the you know hates maybe a little early. But maybe it's not about the stanley cup odds wellspring trainings rolling. So world series. Odds are out. And how easy is it to project forward. I mean i look at the dodgers. And i'm like oh my gosh. Look how good they are. But then san diego went and added all these terrific pitchers and you're like man. Maybe san diego can be a team that can sneak into a pretty interesting conversation. Our the odd set in your mind right now like you them. Do you see some value and This got to be difficult. I mean we're talking about something that's going to happen in october. It is but you know baseball of all the sports i think is the one that that people think is easiest to predict with all the with the sample size and the numbers and the statistics on what happened yet. Los angeles dodgers pretty much. Read like an all star team when you look at the roster. So they're a plus three twenty favorite to win the world series and you mentioned san diego which is interesting their third on the list but i mean that put them second in their own division. That's something you've got to think about when you're thinking about these things as well then you know a team like the atlanta braves with so much young talent there about ten and a half to one. Of course everyone's excited about the blue jays. Thirty to one odds for them to win the world series right now. That might be a bit of a long shot for that to think that might happen. But they're also second on the odds list in the american league east behind the new york yankees so obviously somebody thinks they're pretty good in a thirty to one. I don't i don't think you're having to take a hometown. Discounted the jays great scott. Thanks for stopping by chris. Sub-grade week our thanks for us. Acid rain rigs anything. You can submit your questions to any of our fine social media channels either twitter instagram more on the ranger eggs a website that's rain greg's dot com question from drouet. What should the number one priority in this offseason for the vancouver canucks. Coal is much salary as you can. i don't know i don't know if they realize how far they are away from being a really competitive team my belief just from living here and listening to the comments from management Not not the fans. I mean the fans can have the opinions that they want. Because you know there were all on the outside of your emotionally invested. But for management. I keep hearing about old back to the bubble. The bubble was awed short frame. It does it does not indicate what you were. They were outside of the playoffs. Before the bubble when you expanded more teams into it right there bottom sex in their lineup is a tire fire. And you can say yeah. That's the bottom end of their lineup. That's half of your forwards that you'll get nothing zip from so they're talking about you know. Should they resign. This player resigned. That player they have enough players in the three and a half to four million dollar range. Don't give them anything they can not be signing players in that range. What i would do is. Because i think there's going to be quality players that are to get squeezed out by the eighty one point five cap. I think that's i mean you you you talk to more than me but i think that's almost a fact drinks and so i think you're going to be able to get really good. Players on one year deals start looking for fence they keep talking about vasily put goals and like he's gonna come in and turned the franchise around the twenty year. Old kid right. He's gonna come and he's going to do fine he's going to be like neal's whole whole blander two young forwards but that's not enough to turn your franchise fortunes around so i would say cul salary look for skill look for speed a dude on short-term and look all you have to do and we'll get to murray's question on goaltending in vancouver in just a second but look around the north division right and you see the patience and the perseverance that does finally pay off. You know you're seeing not in toronto. You're seeing it to some degree and edmunds and obviously the david and dry subtle. You're seeing it in in winnipeg with the likes of shy sharply. Nikolai healers and you know pure luke dawar. Now i mean go down the list vancouver just has to be patient in get the. Here's the part of the drinks. I don't think people remember you. Brought up winnipeg safely. Connor ehlers lowry appleton. All go of morrissey russellville was gone but he turned into something back recliner. Your all of those guys are home grown. And you've got to sit there and it's gotta be hard like chevy's got the same kevin shovel diaz got the same hair as you. It doesn't get long flourish. It gets wide and gray and so while. He's waiting for these guys to prosper. The patients parts the tough part. Yeah but they stuck with it and winnipeg. They got a really good team. Vancouver his been a little bit here a little bit. They're a little bit they have no none of. It's one thing to say or that was the number nine pick. Pederson was a number five huge. Was number seven. You should hit on those pets. Virtanen in the lineup. He was the six pack leash. There you know that that hasn't quite worked for them for the most part they don't have anybody from mid second round down. I i want to say. Hold landers the guy. Yeah aren't murray wants to know which vancouver's three goalies and we're we're zeroing in and ask her and drags anything on vancouver because we touched most of the canadian teams in headlines earlier in the pot yet so murray wants to know which vancouver three goaltenders are you exposing in the expansion draft. If you my friend or jim benning braden holtby. Yeah i mean i don. I don't even think it's a conversation. Really which would be a big part of the reason why they signed him right right and three point four million and having the start he is. I don't know why would you claim them. If you're seattle you're going to have other options and they'll be good options. Not that he isn't but they'll be younger. Better options yeah so to me. It's it's hopi for you know it's certainly not go. It's not gonna be detroit. The other one that they he would be referring to but game. It's me for sure all right final question and it's more cami related to be fair from kyle. Okay a lot of time with county. I mean as you should choose my wife. I buy probably spending more time with her than she would really want at this point but we are without question and and think of this lawyer answering the question cami related because as we wrap up episode twelve. We have an updated the milestone birthday in the planning. And all of that. And it's not going well okay. We'll get we'll get more on that saga. Our teams able to scout. Now question from from kyle. Is it all watching games on. Tv or scouts permitted to attend games. Live will negatively impact seattle's expansion draft scouting ability. So this may be too sensitive because yummy is a big part of the scouting. Staff will tell you in her office her office. Yeah when i go in there. There's there's always a book that's open gets closed like there's always a screen that shutdown like i literally. She's literally on the other side of this wall. Yeah i have no idea what goes on in there so she does go to the canucks home game. she's able to go to the game. There's a protocol for the pro scouts. They could go They go up to a box. They sit in the box. She's the only one in that box. Yeah so everybody's distance. They do their job. They go right back down the elevator to get in the car and they go home so she can get to To the games lots of video scouting but they don't watch the games. They watch them on tv. Can we watch them on tv. But they have scouting programs that isolate on individual players. So you can just watch one player. Whoever that might be and they they must narrow down the. There's not six hundred players available. There's whichever number players are available. And you keep calling the held colindale until you get to the point that you're comfortable making pick but y- for sure it would impact the way that they scout. If every team has impacted scouting wise on the amateur and the pro level. Right you just. You can't get to the games. You would normally get to no question all right so big week coming up followed by another be we. Every week is a big weekend raindrops podcast. How is the planning going. I know you've enlisted family and probably some friends to make sure that you not this thing out of the park right now. I'm looking for a ground rule. Double really yeah. Like the options of what's available and what you can do. Of course that takes things down a lot tight okay. Soul on now. He sent me a picture of you. It looked like you. You're either finishing up doing pictures from nineteen ninety or something right. I bring it up because it's probably an opportunity for us to post that picture as part of the podcast thinking drake's could you did you again. I had the mustache. Well there you go so so. Just just do all the barbecuing do all of the having. You're not getting host a big party any know the i would assume we'll have some kind of families thing right. But that's they do that on every birthday granados are they more zoom calls in a businessman and so they're always chit chat and so we'll we'll get that together i don't know i'd like to be able to canis. Not a thing person. She wants the experience of it. She wants family close. She won't so we'll probably plan. I would say something for fall. Nice when hopefully we can get together as a family and go somewhere but for right now in. i don't know i i just. I'm a little short on ideas. I gotta be honest with you. How many people can you actually have on zoom call. Because when i think of the granado family all i see is like a screen full of squares. That's exactly it. The answer is her brother. Joe is a is a brilliant guy works. has worked for a few companies. He's kinda like he's pretty impressive guy so your question. How many people can you put on. Zoom call is not for me. It's for joe. All right. When when i text joel a week ago said hey joe is looking for a little help with gandhi's birthday and he said an obama. I'm expecting spectacle. So they know they know by the way. Does this gamma gets the primary assist for for looking to hillary. Is that fair. Oh yeah by the way initial idea. But but here's the thing one. I brought it up after watching the game on sunday which was outstanding from madison square garden. You said well. How would we get her number and candidate heard you. When she's like did he just ask. How are you going to get the number. So i can. I was having to get all the numbers and lineup the guests. I guess i would see eighty seven percent of the guests or on your on your bali. Wink house there is an underused word. Dali whick. I didn't even really know what it means but i don't ever use it to okay. Well it may perhaps somebody can can follow up on one of our social media's twitter love twitter you you like twitter so somebody will be making it. Less and less. Bailiwick is the actual bailiwick. Yeah well that means in all the things you look after. I have no idea. It would be my daily work of things that i look after. Yeah we'll get. Get us out of here. Would you are body. What else have you got lined up between leaf. Leave connect game on thursday tonight from vancouver Next week i've got to winnipeg toronto games. They play tuesday and thursday in toronto so busy ten days got coupla jets games from like literally right over there. Yeah be doing the intermissions with sarah and and the days just they fill up they fill up. That's for sure. Well now more of the same game after game wins insider trading tuesdays and thursdays. Every week like clockwork. Righty so you got some big for tonight. I do Though yeah good good. I'll be told me to. I'll be tuned in probably draft related. We're we're not gonna get into it because we might have a decision on the league not moving the drops by the time we get to episode thirteen so that'd be something that weekend sinker teeth into next week so perfect we've got to give a huge out rate or partners who make the podcast possible week by week that is cool but dot. Co the free to play sports in casino games website and again. Welcome aboard to our friends at okay tire. Hope you enjoyed episode twelve. Be well and get set for another great episode talking.

Spittin' Chiclets Episode 304: Featuring Elias Pettersson

"Hello. Everybody. Welcome to episode three, hundred and four of spitting chickens presented by pink witty from our friends at New Amsterdam Vodka here on the Barstool sports podcast family. It's Halloween Week Halloween weekend here we got some tricks we got some treats but let's I say hi to a couple of goblins produce of migrelief any plans for the big weekend I know Kovic ruined it for everybody but Anything shaken. No specific plans Halloween, this weekend I knew Biz was glowing a little extra today are a you on the other hand you promised us a good Halloween costume because you got the long hair. So I'm excited to see era instagram and twitter this. Parties to go I. Was it was all don't try to get out of this. I haven't been introduced yet, but don't even begin. This is too early you. All themed towards the Halloween. We'll do we'll do a zoom Halloween party with all our triplets, fans at our as going to always stretch. All of a sudden beat actually loved that, Hey, all of a sudden the big guy with the big hose from all. Corentin just pops into the zoom like some involved. The Guy who got mean what's his name Guy You Gary? Reasons, I love Barry r.i.p Berry love you I actually did go go down the basement today because I I moved some pictures recently. So I knew what they weren't i. Found a couple of old Halloween costumes they sent to the boys maybe we can spit them out on the instagram a little later but. Let's say Paul Business Senate what's up gay me before wet guys do I'm the coolest guy one day at a year and it's Halloween because on my fucking scarecrow tattoos. So how do I get a lot of tweets about it pumping my tires about how amazing it is free cover charge. Now let me give you a little bit of advice. Lay off the candy. Okay. And that might seem very simple off the hop here, but it's leading into something. So I go to the fucking dentist last week was a little bit behind because of Kovin I didn't think putting myself in that environment necessarily right away. So I missed my like, what do you do every three months checkups six months? I think you get your teeth cleaned bouquet waltzing check cavities. So I went about eight to nine months. So she goes looking around you know nothing out of the ordinary a few like, ooh, that was a little sensitive here there. Well she proceeds to tell me I have ten fucking a cavities do reassuring. Wasn't this ten I know Oray. Mean Buddy what do I do with Diet Coke and use licorice loss? If anybody knows me and watches me brush my teeth. I do it for about ten fucking minutes. It's a greasy. Revised two loss I floss with those plastic things. So's thing I told. So that's not how you're supposed to correctly loss. You gotTA use real floss. Ra. This thing. Can Cavities Yet. Using g-string his. All raise plus one ted and carry out of the gate second assess ten cavities than maybe the trashy thing you ever told me. Okay so so obviously, my wheels are saw banning. So then I get horrible couple of days man. Okay. Okay. So then I got the bill and I see it's twenty five hundred bucks for future. I haven't done this yet right? So. Then adding I'm going down and business world. Well then I. Should I go get a second opinion. Like maybe they were a little slow. They need a few extra funds and they're like this guy's a fucking hockey player. Look at his nose look at Greasy look we could fuck in sandbag this guy. So I think I almost have to go for a second opinion to hear someone tell me I'm in the double digits for cavities considering I've went three months over my last visit or or beyond. and Teen Months Dude like more twenty three. I think you're lying about the last time you went, and so that's the only explanation or the guy to completely wrong I was looking at somebody else's teeth x here's a real. Case. So here's where you're wrong because my ex girlfriend used to work at the place. Okay. So there is another theory, but I'm not going into the. Floride with like acid in it. Arose her okay we should. Probably having a good chuckle, but there's no way this. Whatever now if in fact I go someone like, yes you do have ten cavities. It's it's remarkable. What have you been doing over corn to warrant ten cavities and we recommend you start philosophy with a G. String I said I said has been ever been done in one set. And they're like, no, no, you can't do. You can't do ten one set. So if in fact I have ten I think my punishment should be to go back there and get all ten and one set I recommended five at most I thought I thought three was Kinda, the Max. For I've had horrible. God. Right now and I'm having the biggest truffle all this, and this is my mouth we're talking about. Well, do your your mouth is an absolute pigsty of a place and I can't believe that that's actually the news you got. Imagine you go to the second opinion and he's like you got keen gap. You have to pull all your teeth and dentures. The guy goes up on the cavities. Be One step closer to having nice teeth teeth like avery so. I mean I don't know I. Let's put up Paul what would be harder me accomplishing the Tour de France me going to ten cavities in one sitting so I thought the boys would have a chuckle at my expense regarding that subject. I. Mean in my embarrassed that I have ten cavities. Yeah I am. But I'm also embarrassed that Shit my pants before and he did it as an adult in an airport. I'm embarrassed about somebody else shitting my bed. I'm embarrassed about a lot of things but you guys are like my buddy. So if you're gonNA share these things. Also too busy I had like I was starting to get a spot on my because she get older whatever smoking drinking tea coffee for years whatever. You can actually go. To brush teeth too, and you could literally brush the enamel right off, which is what I did. I always thought Bryant brushing better and you literally fucking take the enamel right off. So you they said sometimes you could switch soft hand brushes get an electric but you're telling me I've brushed ten Cavadino on my teeth not brush 'em off mine. But it's a so. So there's four potential theories here but I mean ultimately I hope that I wasn't being sandbagged and that's actually what it costs to replace ten cavities and it's not fourteen and I do at one sitting and we all have a big laugh about it if I make it through it. Yeah I had a root canal a my guy, my guy couldn't do it. So he had to refer refer me to another guy, these mother fuckers during a pandemic I. You know when you get a medical bill, sometimes you pull it off to the side. It's not a credit card bill these mother fuckers after like a month, sent me to a collection agency and. Go they want all for that cow I paid that motherfucker in person? I. Was like, Oh, I know this isn't your call to the secretary was Nice. I says can you pass the latter? It's absolutely ridiculous to put people's name to our senator named or credit agency like six during a six month eight-month pandemic. You don't know what people's fucking financial situations or it's granted. Mine didn't change. That's besides the point we got. A little one of those cans the goal throws put on your forehead for all these crazy interaction, our egos full Karen. I am interested to see what you pull out of your pull out for Halloween, are because I feel like that was a promise. Now, we should mention considering we're done having a little chocolate, my expense that on Saturday sadder note, we're not going to be talking for the next month. We're going on a full month hiatus although we will be rolling out some interviews for you guys. We have some great ones lined up a g going to get mad at me because you're going to be bugging me about it. I thought we we got Alex Tuck. He was awesome. He was older an hour talked about we we we went all over the place. Today, we have a special guest and I'll let you tee that up are. Of, course we say hi to wit. We've been talking about it. Shit Roach CD. So I gotTA. Say to me I. Thought he was frozen. Throw so far tonight I know I did say Biz from the topless show we have some treats it and that means we get huge guest tonight EP forty, Elliott Patterson of the Vancouver canucks we had a blast Dr this kid, I mean you know I love and we get the Europeans just different style about of different swag whatever I had a lot of fun talking to this kid did you guys not? I had a blast. This guy gave me the business to. You'll hear he had no he had no fear whatsoever interpret me I respected the hell out of that. I also think that He didn't know what was going on as he got in and you could tell he kind of loosens up and then I really noticed he make the video I think will show his personality a little more than maybe what you're about to hear but the video and our instagram and all that I just had a fun time because this is an interesting cat. So we talked about a bunch of different things you'll enjoy. Getting, we'll get to that a little later I. we're actually going to kick off a little baseball tonight I know that's not frequent on checklists but the world series game six Tuesday night I mean I trash baseball Automata goof lineup but I love the world series I still watch it. We got a great game before that Tampa Bay one late. I've never seen anything stupid in a lifetime of watching world series. What's his name Kevin cash manager? Of Tampa he pulls Snell the guy gives up a second hit in the six ten and five and a third innings pitched seventy-three pitches. He pulls the guy after giving up a single. The next three bad is all struck twice that night over six with six KS in because these fucking analytics that drive me up a wall atop the reason to hate fucking baseball pulls the guy I just go up to one end up winning three one one of the series i. Can Taste fucking Tampa dodgers but just an awful awful managerial decision with. One of the worst I can't even remember something as dumb. And when you talk about. How people reacted like you can listen fans and. Analysts after the most amazing thing I saw was. Alex Rodriguez and David Ortiz were interviewing bellinger. Is it cody. Cody. You think that guy that guy gets laid Nellie. My God for another story. This guy is getting interviewed by these two hall famous and they ask him I think it was a rod. What was your thought when you saw that they were opponents now and he started laughing he's call. Thank God we find they had a chance and then mookie said the same thing when he got police's like Oh maybe I'll actually get on base was. Analytics the argument that everyone has on the other side is that analytics got this team with the lowest payroll in baseball one of the lowest payroll in pro sports to the world series and it gave him so much success analytics is the major reason behind it now. So if like. You gotTa dance with what got you there and I think that I just butchered that saying but You don't WanNa fuck on. The one you brought I don't know but I think everyone knows what I meant. I'm on now. I think you should have you. Know. What I mean. You know what I mean that they're saying, well, why would I change what God is here? Why would you change it? Why would you not pull this guy? Because he's the one of the best pitchers in baseball he's grooving to hits seventy three pitchers when I was little like nineteen, ninety, four, I was eleven years old I don't remember who the world series was I remember watching Nolan Ryan bombed one hundred and one mile fastballs each one hundred and forty pitches some nights. You can change the regular season and how you save guys arms with analytics I understand. But when you got your ace back in the day, the ace used to go nine. Nine nine innings pitched complete game winners in the fucking world series and this dude was willing to do that. The snow was probably six or stomach. He's had tears in his eyes when he got the hook, he's I. There's an old thing Mike Mussina. Mike we yelling at. I. Don't know if there's Joe Torry. Someone New York is get the fuck back in the dugout when he saw him coming out. Didn't do that but Jesus man what a Shitty Way to end that game, and that series because I thought there was going to be game seven I took Tampa to I took them game tune game for Ra. So sticking with it, I always thought I was too and all in the series on just them in three in two and four. So it sucked and the analytics part I do agree can I guess a team that's paying the whole team less than they're paying mookie that's the only way they get to where they are. But at some point you gotta look like man, this guy's fucking lion on the mound he didn't want to be taken out. Yeah, and also game sex I get why they were doing the low pitch counts for like the regular season just to kind of get everyone and as you mentioned to Kinda save arms but like they're not save it for at that point, you just had a shortened season and these guys are used to throwing more and going back to those interviews. MOOKIE BETTS HOW is it? Interesting guy to like I didn't realize how big of a stud this guy was on the field and to all the. SOCK. Sorry to hear Jesus. Rolling his eyes right now. But he said he goes the way that the other guy was pitching snell he's like we just we couldn't see it like we couldn't track it at all and it goes. That's just the way the night goes and when they. On like that. Like. You said they were already over to the next three guys in all of which might have been strikeout. So like you said, they had a big chuckle over that but. I ended up turn on the game after that, and then that Mukhi, made it three, three, one by Jack I didn't catch all the action I saw twitter Dr Twitter Excuse me light up and that's why I started watching. So interesting breakdown in the guy, the guy that they brought in had given a run up six straight games. would be like it would be like killing a penalty. With a minute twenty to go in game seven of the Cup finals game six. If you WANNA get real accurate and I, happen to be on a team with Nick, Lindstrom and the coaches I hold on hold on. Let strum. Let's get Whitney out there. You threw me on the PK and immediately the other team scored because of something I did and you like that was the analogy. Someone made the analogy on twitter tool that it was the equivalent upon traffic and the eighty Olympic game and I thought I mean, I know that circumstance a little different butter was along the same lines in mentioned pitch counts. They fuck and weren't even a thing. I don't know twenty years ago because I actually went to look up in speaking a mookie business. That's a name that triggers generations of SOx fans. Now going back to the eighty six world series a movie Wilson. Was Pat, when they ended up coming back in that epoch game six and I looked up because there was some controversy about clements coming out of that game with under you your fucking Omnium fuel born yet baby whatever followed clemens this shit in Clemens Arnold he said he wanted to stay in the coach shed that he wanted to come out but I looked up, he went seven innings gave up four hits to run like it wasn't like okay. It wasn't like this decision but I I couldn't find a pitch kind of looking at the box. Good. Pitch a pitch count on a box school from nine, hundred, eighty six, and now it's this thing that these guys go way too deep on like who the fuck his fast ball comes off a back when the guy hits it like just like the jove average six pack needs to know that Shit it just. Shows. Also, my theory in on my theory, I guess theory. I. Don't think anything comes close to football but if anything does it's baseball in terms of how much a manager can like our coach can actually make change the game football's number one, the place they're calling, but I think that coaches matter. So much of a baseball, your show is this guy. I mean, there had to be there had to be as big as bench coach had two players in that team taken. What is this guy doing right now? What's it doing? Doing, and then I also read if you were to get fired which I don't think you'd fire him I mean horrible decision. But look what the season they had like. He'd get hired the next day. So the guys that good coach I just think he lives and dies by numbers some pizza. Yeah. Exactly. Middle Game Seven oopsy daisy and no more. We have this fall a new a new boot king from commissions of sports because rob Manfred. Gut It hod. He seemed pretty fucking rattled when it happened man this guy I don't know if he was drinking during the game murphy was nervous and there's not even Clinton close to a full house he was getting booed pretty good at it seemed like a really affected them. Did you catch that wall somebody tweet out that? He was drunk I was like what the fuck is going on everything missing all this crazy stuff at this game. Is loaded somebody said that, but I don't know if there was confirmation maybe the booze rattling that much but Jesus Christ maybe get a pep talk with Batman, I eats booze. And then you had you love, bettman's got like the hulk stir like let's go. Let's hear the other side for me, and then you get like the pull Johnson turn from the game because he his positive test for Kobe Komo during the game, and then he goes back on the field mass takes it off I. Guess He's been with those guys the whole time but or just like I, I mean Kudos to baseball and the dodgers for winning. But what a cluster fuck that guy was their. Thoughts online. I was like, okay. Time to sign off. Yeah. Anyways, moving right along hockey in Massachusetts was a big story since the last episode there were a cluster of cases allegedly linked to hockey I again I say allegedly because I don't know how it was proven. I guess one hundred eight confirmed cases out of like fifty thousand registered players less than a quarter of a percent depends on who's doing the math flyer. So the powers that be here in Massachusetts, put a two-week stoppage to all youth recreational hockey. Delays Michael Weather Bauer exercises for the now but a lot of people in the hockey community here in Massachusetts. Not Happy. I mean I didn't get it wet myself like, okay. What's two weeks going to do? It's a it just it just seemed kind of too specific I. Don't I don't know what I some. Yeah I've been it was frustrating for me to see because. That these kids are for the most part. What I've been told is everyone was doing a job in terms of. You're not going to the rank of you feel sick the Tracy thing where you have rosters being given out at the Games by parents you you you. You see a bunch of other things going on that. Are there fine and basketball and the state where it's indoors as well and people are rubbing up against each other more than hockey like that hasn't been shut down and. If it's two weeks whatever. All right. But if they end up doing where they're pushing the goal back, then it's two more weeks and all of a sudden all these kids who? They can't go to school they can't play hockey I mean what the fuck? Like what are you doing to kids that don't don't deserve for for this to be happening to them. So certainly, there's people out there who are irresponsible and maybe our issues in terms of why there are spikes I mean. That's that's a that's a conversation that is way more indepth than what we're going to have. But in terms of like everyone being affected like a bunch of kids playing hockey I I don't i. don't really see how that's fair for million other things going on. So if it's two weeks that'll be at if it's not then you start thinking well, we gotta do something we gotta figure something I'll help these kids out. Get back playing with should be healthy. You live your life you exercise be with your friends you can't just shut these kids lives off. Your the two weeks feels arbitrary. It's not everybody's GonNa go home inquired quarantine for that two weeks. You know what I mean like the fucking things still bouncing around but anyways yeah. Hopefully, the kids here Massachusetts can get back to playing in Massachusetts enough to go to other states which I know all the p. that's the instinct. Let's go somewhere else and then you know you re run the risk of bringing an infected somewhere else which is fucking fucking cost the fuck from the. GECKO. anyways. Let's regardless of what Major League Baseball Analytic said Tuesday night there are some numbers you just don't want to mess with in Twenty Nineteen alone one hundred, twenty, six people were killed in six hundred, thirty, five people injured in collisions at railroad crossings from twenty fourteen to twenty, one, thousand, nine, hundred, seven, hundred, ninety fatalities involving motor vehicles. At railroad crossings bylaw trains have the right of way at all railroad crossed crossings. That's why our friends at Nitsa in the F. R. A. The Federal Railroad Administration want you to be very heads up when approaching a railroad crossing trains cannot swerve stop quickly or Change Direction to avoid collisions a train travelling at fifty five miles per hour takes a mile or more to stop. So when approaching a railroad crossing slowdown looked and listened for train on the tracks especially at passive crossings you know it's true that there's no excuse that's worth risking your life or at highway real real grade crossing. So, be sure to stop his trains can't. All right boys so that before I was on Biz. Dash back to either. Little cleaning up there speaking a numbers how fucking Wayne Wayne Gretzky put his house on the market. I don't know how long it's lead on there I saw. His one in in California twenty, three, million, one on show. Would that course they just played at I? Believe saw. Fins Barkan, can you guys hear that? Twenty, three, million. On his trip is twenty three, she twenty three sheets. It's gorgeous like an estate I think it's the house were in the pool they filmed the scene from. Abu Standing. In nine, what's the band called nickelback rockslides bugsy favorite band? He partied with them itself. That's like the one day I listened to them because I got my Halloween Tattoo that's school put. On through standing in line I. Know You got to you got that Tattoo back in the day when you're like Halloween's the sickest of the year to go out and rip it like now I'll get into every clubs I got a tattoo for say this then that you grew than tribal or wire come on, that's a stall barbed wire around the BICEP. If you have that right now guys everyone home you laugh and looking down at your buys with a bar wire but you know you had a couple of years that you were the balls. No word of a lie I think Dan Girardi has the tattoo where it's barbed wire. But where it meets the by of Seth it's tribal he's got the. Scott Collab-, man he. Is He a well and boy? My Goodness I. Really. He's a well and boy. On He's a funny fucker to I. Don't know if he'd let it fly on the podcasts given like that like anytime. Anyone comes on now they get they try to get canceled Little, little little nudge from what the fuck is going on. Now, I don't even understand what it's like to deal with certain people. Nowadays, we're dropping interviews, allies, Patterson who was unreal. Great Time, and then all of a sudden we what out that he's GonNa come on the part you're GonNa, put you in here in a couple of minutes and he's got people coming out of them online who say Biz in the podcast. MISOGYNISTIC and racist it's fucking bullshit but these people are such pigeons. Allies realized you know what? I'm not gonNA listen to these losers online I'd a lot of fun doing this podcast with these guys and I'm GonNa let the interview role because nothing now nothing happened and those people aren't what? The podcast host is with they aren't what these people say they are. So fuck you and you're trying to make our lives more difficult. But in the end, you don't matter again because we have another awesome guy who comes on and tells the story talks about his love hockey and enjoys it. So take a hike and beat it. These people are such losers online. Terrorist. Ignoring you don't want you don't. You don't like it. Don't watch it but yeah. fussing on. How are we? Going to hop it. It makes it a little difficult because like we're trying to give every fan base what they want to interview their favorite players you want to get him on here, and in this case, this kid is like a sweetheart this kid would not harm a fly. You know what I'm saying and like a lot of people from the Vancouver Fan base, we listen to the podcast. You know they wanted him the captain came on. So he comes on, we have a great one. We WanNA tease it a little bit for for all you Vancouver fans who listen to the show and then like PD's got. Feel like go online and see the people are like fucking. Kids are burning their kids jerseys and there're going out to get a a you know he was one or something, and it's just like it's just very excessive like listen have have we maybe said some things on the podcast of upset people but like I dunno misogynistic racist like those are some pretty fucking lazy terms of you throwing out like based on what? What everybody who's listening right now here's from the show like guys I used to talk about my sex life like I. Guess if that makes misogynistic because like they were like silly ridiculous stories like. Well, I guess I'm sorry for not being sorry about telling in the past I'm clearly living a different life now where like a behind me but even go weren't your sister telling like stories of your life that people are interested in these people are such loses don't listen all right no, but but right But also in the same breath is like you know me anare spend a bit more time maybe on social media than wit I'm trying to siphon through like what our fan base likes some trying to collect like okay. Seem like people really enjoy this. Let's maybe try to do a little bit more of that like Granola going down the you know the streaming because guys. As as a Patterson talks about the interview, like he wants to do streaming Nathan MacKinnon just started streaming. Younger guys. This is a good way for like our audience to connect with those guys through a I, don't play much video games when I do I get spanked but Grenell there grinding it out. So we're just we're just trying to like you know run a tighter ship than maybe we de Star but we're still going to let it fly. We're still going to have fun, and if it means, we're not get your favorite players on then fuck back because I ain't fucking changing and that JD Burqas Duke Lick my ball back I don't give a shit. No, I'm dead serious. I don't care like did you do the research like do you know anything? The showdown when when things erupted as far as the black lives matters movement like guys like when that should I'm I say I'm fairly liberal and I'm from Canada when that Shit's happened down there I was I was a wreck like it gives me anxiety. So like we care about these social matters that some people are letting it fly like that we don't care about no, and we're trying to handle it even more and more maturity as going we go on because we know we do have a bit of a voice and there are younger people listening to this show and we have to get to a a subject a little bit here. That's a bit of a Debbie Downer but. Were like there are certain things that I won't say anymore I don't use the word kills anymore. I try not to talk Grenell. Said I'm trying to move I'm trying to move my line for you, but there's some things I can't reason with Jd fucking burqas lick my fucking. Don't let you Jackie I. Am glad you mentioned I I didn't I don't follow them I didn't even hear about until like the last week and he wrote unless upset or mad about Elliot's Pederson for going on Chiklis what you wouldn't even name than I am at at the institution of hockey for Chiklis become a thriving pot of the culture in the first place. Fell here's the. Hockey Institution Hockey didn't let us in there was a fucking market and we fill the void in. That's what fucking happen. So put it in your fucking fucking pipe and smoke a diggle, leave me I. It would be better off to not have to deal with this shit and just hide out in this little corner here. That's why we do podcast. This is not being shoved down your Throat Ladies and gentlemen you gotTa Click to get here. So that's why we do it on the barstool platform because we're allowed to let it. Fly where a Tsn, a sports net or whatever major company that we worked for they say you can't say that talked you I'm going to say what the Fuck I want connection to the the the the fucking the Holy Trinity Racist Sexist Homophobic which doesn't apply to us in a lot of is just old like Dave said some stupid shit over the years like old bad jokes that attempts at jokes off the go over them now and they just I think most of the people say that just bitching about Dave, the most part. I'm off disloyal to Dave. He's been fucking great for me, but they just those pieces that original look at this thing from the daily beast like listen I was fucking media major those the epitome of slanted hit. Half the people write them. Don't even work for that out what they get. Pyatt specifically to write about the worst possible that they think in spin it that way and those are the stories that people tag strangest. So the impression they have of Bostrom chip bunches some fucking six year old daily beast article that was designed to make us look like shit in the first place. So whatever we know said all in all it weighed ended though. I think you'll enjoy the interview made out decision I. Well, we we we got a little ways to get before. Okay. Yeah. Shitload assignments boys lot lot more know a lot of the free agents went but now what kind of fell off my chest by the way I know we ran at a little bit they're boys but this is the shit that like I'm fucking Dundee on with it I, it's move it over the signings like I said most of. Unrestricted free agents off the board they're onto restricted free agents abitration. There's only been one hearing. So five I Detroit full at Tyler, Bird. Tuesay was awarded a one year three and a half million dollar deal he had twenty one goals. Twenty seven assists last year in seventy one games used the first hour fay to have a hearing either you guys have a have arbitration. We hear some horror stories about Abitration I've heard horror stories in a sense that. Guys go in there in the team will say the meanest shit possible. They'll make fun of his wall horry they'll make fun of his dog at home they'll. They'll bring up like how shitty the car is. He's driving although maybe not that because then they could pay him more money for nicer. You know what I'm saying it's not pleasant and I think a lot of times there's been stories or there's there's there's history of of guys like never wanting to play for that team again after they hear the way, the GM or whoever they're kind of talks about them. So it's a business. But nobody I think enjoy certainly players don't necessarily enjoy arbitration unless they get an enormous payday from it which used to never happen maybe it happens a bit more. Now Mr Arbitrator this guy can't play in the first line because the first line center complains about how bad his breath during games so we cannot pay him first line money who got a huge arbitration has yields sure honor he does not shave his not he's not she. Have you seen? The buyer, have you seen the barbed wire and tribal tattoo on his arm? Your honor? Either way as close from Abercrombie your honor. Abercrombie, good prove for Tuesday, though business I mean. I like this song got a nice little bump in pay on imagine. Yeah. No, he's. He's a heck of a player. He's got that like old school throwback look to I think I think Assad online is. His girl posted a picture. They got his mouth of him smiling as made as one of the masks for Kovic. Their, buzzing around. So he's a he's a funny dude and he he's Todd gratuities nephew right? Correct. Hafa twitter thinks it's his son every time he does something on the ice but. His nephew so Moving right along the Senate as a team, we've been mildly stroke and off a little bit Connie Brown he avoided arbitration signed a three year deal ten point eight 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? Along Heaven Couva San Restricted Free Agent Jake for ten and two year deal five, point one milk comes out to two point five, five, million, dollar cap it Let's See Dallas San restricted free agent Dennis Curry on-off fuck was he really made a name for himself this past playoffs two year deal five point one million comes out to just over two and a half million as well By the way heads up to our friends over T., S. DOT, com, get your free agent track. A does not have this deal listed so you might want to jump on that. Let people know because some people do do use that for work. It wasn't just a little heads up Carolina San Restricted Free Agent Hayden Flurry two year deal two point six minutes at one point three million capit-. Jersey signed unrestricted free agent Dmitri Kulikov to a one year deal worth one point one, five millions with Winnipeg last year and Edmonton extended defenseman Chris Russell one year, one, point, two, five mil that deal kicks in of the Twenty One, twenty, two season. So a lot of one and two year deals but I know some of the FELLAS Biz prefers seventy year deals because, well, most guys have tried different ways to last longer imbed but thinking about awful decisions by baseball managers in the world series doesn't always work.

So hopefully, donor will be back in the front office visit you I at any scoop on that gotta what on no I haven't really reached out to a excuse me. I haven't reached anyone to talk about that. I think the other news that came out I think the same day I believe right after Elliott free minutes tweeted that out. Something else came up. So just been kind of focusing on how I'm going to talk about that on the podcast. Guys, it sucks. You want to get into an hour. Yeah. Yeah. We'll. We'll jump right into it. coyotes draft pick Mitchell Miller who they took in the fourth round. They didn't have any picks in the first three rounds. had.

A wall as she says, he she thinks he pled guilty in part to keep that video from going public those kind of so awful to watch again, that was per the mullahs. She also said that millicent apology lead to thirty one teams but never want to her son said, our son is never heard from him never got an apology from when the court went on. The. Magistrate had some harsh words familiar basically dot he felt he was the victim and the whole thing and look you know every draft teams need to make sure to similar decisions not about these particular circumstances but there's a Lotta. Shit on guys that they hear about they have to verify But this is some. This is some top staff to read man it was really. Heinous stuff and you know, I, I know I Shit I did it to fourteen wasn't always good. But you know this was a disc or tape at Sam goody. This was some some some stuff man I know people talk about second chances and stuff like that but it's like, okay you don't have to give this person. A second chance is, is this juice worth the squeeze? I I don't know man it's it's behavior of such a level it's like I that's not something maybe three years later it just goes away if I'm a GM. I might have taken a pass as well but with Biz I'm not. You'll want to Joel I'm GonNa Hop Ben. Guys it doesn't sound like at all that he. Like he was remorseful for it because I anyone who was remorseful for for this would handled it a completely different way and for the for the judge to say that to him for the signs of the footage judge say sorry. I Apologize No, you're fine I would what the judge say to them at the basically the other the other kid who was a part of this was like crying in the courtroom and was completely devastated and clearly at understand deep down to the core. Then why is what was a highness crime? The, Judge didn't feel that from Miller at all and for for a judge to maybe go over his way to say that during sentence sentencing. I mean they're usually judges for reason, like they know what the fuck they do, and they got into that level where people trust their overall opinion and assessment of all situations. So our at you hop in and said, yeah, the from the Magistrate Judge Whatever they got Mitchell. I'm not sure you still get it. I don't think you like being where you are but I still don't think you've put yourself in the shoes of. Not just a one victim but numerous victims know what should come to school and Phil humiliated or intimidated if this is what you do in school I wonder what you do outside of school is supposed to be in your best behavior in school. So if this is an example of your best behavior, I wonder what your worse behaviors, I don't have a sense of real remorse but I do feel that you feel sorry for yourself. In kind of aligns with the apology to the thirty, one teams in the kid that he assaulted in victimized and. Listened from the coyote standpoint and speak for anyone inside the organization I don't. Know who made the I don't know why I mean I believe they released a statement saying that partly also because they've been, they've been harping on the diversity thing which is a good thing right with. Xavier being hired as the the president. And then to go out to do this, that's A. Very contrasting there and people were calling them out on it where the organization said we felt that like considering this is something that we're looking so much into that, we would be the team that would be able to like. Like clearly. Rehabilitate this person till where he's completely clear image and that is that person that did that whatever that he did no longer exists not even a SPEC on the fucking radar and to hear so many different examples as to maybe like he genuinely deep down to the core didn't understand what he did and why it was so wrong not only the abuse side of it just like the racist side of it so. I. Guess Oh. Leave it at this. If a fourteen year, old person makes a mistake even as grave as this. Do I believe that they should be cancelled forever if they show remorse and understand what they did was wrong and the core to the core and even maybe even go as far as to like. Go and talk in front of kids at school and and understand that why this is a problem why this can't exist I. Don't know I'm not saying. That that would be a good way to start get ahead of it where you can kind of like pay your debt to society, and of course, the kid he did it to in the family. Of course that's like numeral but then to go show them, this is how I've learned from it, and this is what I'm trying to do. I'm trying to use my horrible example as as you know, this is why it's bad look at on the big what was supposed to be the biggest day of my life getting drafted to the NHL. The whole is national news about what I did. Right. Yeah. Those very well said band. And that's That's an example in itself for every person listening to understand that your you're your, there's consequences to your action especially when the the act it gets too. So grave as what this was and this I believe that it's fair that this kid is carrying this burden at eighteen years old because of what he's done and maybe. In what we're hearing is the lack of remorse and what he actually did. So at that point in time on thinking no, I, don't think he's truly learned from that horrible act and how it may have affected that other person. So it's just like it was just hard to hear and like. You know. It's a tough one on Chin for the organization There's no denying that if they felt that they talked to him, they truly believe that he is no longer that person and that was their judgment at the time then. You A guy I. would trust I would trust them if if it were true though that he'd like. Apologize to that kid I mean if that's true with the never even like said anything to him in person or on a letter. Does those horrible to read I mean listen man if this kid doesn't feel bad for what he's done and actually like truly truly understand like. How mean and cruel what he did was then he probably doesn't deserve a second chance Biz you said it past if he can. He can go out and prove that. He's a different human being then I I think everyone deserves a second chance I'll say I'll summit by saying this. A knock and argue with you. If you think that he should never have the right to play in the NHL giving with worth thinks it as were presented in the media. But I'm not gonNA, argue with you. If you think that this kid deserves a second chance to show that he's not that person like I just like. Well, you said you could be the one to not give them the second chance but if you're going to hate every single person that would that's kind of where you've gotta maybe think I why I disagree with that person on giving him a shot but so. Hopeful- hopefully though if anything that's not that the kid even wants to hear it now but he should get in touch with that guy in and then apologize and Like, just relating to like me talking about it like I work for the coyotes and like there's a there's unbelievable people that work for the organization and it just seems to have felt that like there's been a lot of not so positive things happening Like yeah I'm not going to cast any judgment on the inside other than the fact that I hope you're right on this one because this seems I. Hope this is not as being portrayed in the media or as intense because I don't think that necessarily is a great representation at this time just at this time. Yeah as far as the second chance you know team is obligated to give the him or any other chance. If you did something, we'd be the drama I'm sorry. No, that's right now I think we should also note we had GM bill Armstrong Bill Armstrong on. He had absolutely nothing to do with this pick because the news broke since that episode but you know he was still with the blues he had nothing to do with the draft wasn't able to deal with the draft. So I figured that's worth noting because he was a recent guest in military discounts on his community service but you know the the jury's still out on actual remorse I, guess so. We can move right along here chugging along. Actually you know what boys I think, it's pretty good time with Senator Order El-Arish Pederson get a little levity inherent.

Hockey growing up to follow all the drama and the British Premier League all these high end soccer. Leagues Yeah I do I'm a big fan of soccer and. I watched it a lot. I don't. Follow it. Nowadays. Because time difference on everything and I don't have a favorite team. So stuff the sport not. On Anglia, your typical typical Sweden that speaks perfect English and I know you guys take a growing up was it was a little difficult for you two years ago you rookie year view British pretty much been completely easy easy speaking for a while now. I was. Also K. in English at school I mean I did. Like like highschool might only mindset was gonna do everything to pass the test because I want to. Because I wanNA play hockey and the reporters need. Yeah exactly. It's same here, but I never passed. Oregon asked to be interviewed. I know so. So I think actually brock best I can. Tell. You guys a story whenever you guys get that opportunity guests now. My First Development Camp I was not good at English at all like. An. He has A. Refund Story. When He's basically telling me that I kinda like him off didn't WanNa talk to him because I was nervous talking about it because I wasn't. Comfortable talking English yet. So. But them. Like moving here here. English, everyday so PD when you're young kid with Swedes that you modeled you game after I, mean you you scoring past to good I would say Peter Forsberg no, he had probably a little more to his game but who did you Montreal? Swallows Peter fors- Berry. S Remember, his. All old days back in Modem where. Orion play for two games very successful two-game. Fifty Actually the privilege to see your last gaming your career now, all my. Those the last period you're at that game. Yeah, you remember it. I remember gas who pizzas three absolute liability has on, but he did have a secondary insist on the power play goal thrilled. Washed best three that's for sure. I was Dash I was dashed three in the first period. And one of them I went to turn in my ankle completely gave out and hit the side of the state and I fell in the guy, grabbed it and threw it in front, and it was like it was like a legit like the whole first home game of the season I'm an import we lost like tonight we got whacks the night before on the road and I'm horrific and I went into and I retired after that period the first period and I sat on the bench the second and third. So we watch the game together my last program. Eight of twenty minutes be dash three and throw pizza against the worst team in the league. A great performance for the dog in this S. H. L. I might of I might have asked my brother for will background check because. You were doing some prep work for this. Was your brother is he is he in Vaxjo now he's saying that Cornell? The team I play for before Vancouver. Well, actually before that I want to ask you you play for Tim rougher a year because my best friend Matt Murli played for timber for awhile and he He lives in he loved it. He married to go from there and. He told me that it was so big when when he was playing there to try to get up to the S. H. L. Right like your division to and and so I saw that you played the one year you lit it up and you guys weren't able to advance into the into the big league. say you ha- instead you went to of Action signed say you had gotten? Timur in would you have stayed with them that year? Would you were you moving on? No matter what that will. Talk. I had like all the time like during the season with my agent would France would family my brother? I Yeah I. Appreciate I would have stayed because timorous close to home It's where I have my I played it for five years and you would have gotten them there. It would have been like that much more special I I would guess yeah exactly and Geno. Things didn't go the way on I'm I'm happy. Would they the? It would be cool to. To bring, Tim Roth and play one year and as such elda Ra kind of talked about it earlier as far as like who you looked up to growing up. Making the transition on you had as much success over there. Were you nervous about coming over to North America to play and was there any of these older veterans from Sweden who you reached out to in order to talk to you before you did? So I mean given the instant success you had yeah. Well, I was nervous I didn't know how. I mean initial list the best league in world and didn't know how well I would do and And of course some. Skinny. Also. so I do know how well it would perform but. we had forgotten for Swedish guys in the team and they help may get comfortable in everything especially marks from Hey, took me under his wing right away and. Grateful for death but. I shall game against flames. My first shift lasted ten seconds because our D.. Absolutely destroyed one of the flames guys and my next shift was a fight so I this is done in jail. Sick leave exactly the way they talked about it over there. Yeah. Yeah. So Like I can live like this where you more scared of coming over here and experiencing it for the first time or fighting Quinn us at Rookie Party this year in the lobby of a hotel. He wouldn't say, yes, the FI. Guys wrestling in the lobby at Rookie Party of the hotel. Room is goes fast. And who to out? I mean, we we're having to get time. Both might have been Lil Little Lucille. Pepsi. That's okay. That happens on your credit card loss loss sued great night's home. I think wrestle. Then we I don't think we had a winner I. Think our teammates rocus loose, and here we go and. You guys got a funny relationship I heard a story to that He was driving up the hill and it was icy out and then he he like pretended to start slipping but then the car actually did start slipping down the hill did not yeah. Yes. So So it was snowing Hoover and. I don't know how slow the workforce like. Safe, it's knowing the snow stays under oath like two three days before they get rid of it so. Ra people collecting a pension doing the nothing. In the closet. On. Also we we we're going off for dinner and I walked because I was driving a sports car and. and. That's end that does not work well in snow. So walked with Queenie to kiss Toyota. Tough core. Sucker quitter. Had to get a Chirp in on him but. Yeah, we were going up a hill and I was already like freaking out because I was afraid we're GONNA slip in I don't know hit someone. and He sends that so we were going up. Then he like scream Oh, my God what I looked around there's no on there and then he starts laughing at me so you got well. Employees who cried, Wolf I had a v Couva shirt when you were a little boy as everybody knows motor. Google it. But what did you know about Vancouver before he got there anything Of course cities? It's still Harry both the sedan. So Get hockey place. But especially, a good people are outside of hockey doing work with the community. No, let's And Mike Over Big Hawk city. And I mean Hawking Canada and. Hawk is the biggest four chairman cougars. So it's a is blessed playing here. To. Take me back like the draft. It's in Chicago I. Think did you know you going V had? Did you have any chances of going higher like how did that whole day go and then after was there a special night in Chinatown once you get to go top five fifth overall I went the same Nice meeting you plug for himself. That's we have to hear about that every episode. Well, I just tried to get every fifth overall pick ever so we can come on I could bring it up every time. You're serious. That's the game. Saw The game you saw. That was not at the prime that was that was pathetic I agree. Yet. The draft. After the combine Both Toronto Ammon Cougar flew me out to Kinda me more do testing level. So Baku was the team that children most interest in me. And but before Drafts. Mangku didn't talk to me. So I still wasn't sure if they were gonNA pick me so. But then My said usually before a draft, the camera guys conscious dance in front of you before a pick is a called up and. When Montgomery was the camera guys what's In front of me so I knew they were going to pick Mitt done, but there was still a little nurse and all that so. How old were you when you knew you were much better than the other kids were playing with. You Realize Holy Shit I'm pretty good here A. Very Jong because yeah very young. UNICYCLE was was the tipping point. I'm better than everyone. I WanNa talk about how you got so into fashion. Your I. See you posting all the time I mean I I don't know if it was at the all. Star Game You wore that James Bond Villain outfit. Yeah. Fun. Thing if people zooming on that pick, it's not stripes. It's letters. And what does it say? I. Saw Vaughan she. Okay. So that's like you love that high end designer. Yeah. I mean I've always been into fashion and. Now in making. A lot of money have been. I don't take care of myself a little bit. To treat yourself. Always pretty sharp-dressed plays in the NHL Yeah I mean. There's some. Tough outfits and team specially. pedia. I mentioned a few minutes of dual threat out there and people are GonNa pass shoot or whatever. What do you like that score a goal setting up for one. Full full-fledged you did a little bit of that in play offs and that's one of the things I wanted to talk about to like maybe there you know that was your first experience obviously the physicality of it goes up and then you guys you end up playing Minnesota and then Saint Louis. Felt that points in both series, they were trying to get you off your game physically, but you ended up playing appoint a game like what were you thinking going playoffs the first time and ultimately how do you think you handled it overall? Yeah I mean. I playoff new. Like all. All intensity gets up and physicality. so Mindset, was to play hard enough shy away from anything and. They're happy with well, we performed in the playoff One game away from making the. Conference final but no I think. Well, I. Think we did well, not men the. And Gentlemen was, of course, a Lotta crosschecking on me and all that, but I'm used to it so. Yeah Yeah. Taken a beating as part of being one of the best that you've definitely had to experience that. But you talk about the playoffs and it was being successful but you also bring up Mark Stroman I get the chance to play with play with Marquis and the miners in. Florida a little bit unreal guys very happy to see us deal but must have been tough to see him go. What did he mean? What did you mean to? You just take under under swing when you came over? Young I mean that was tough for me. I haven't experience. A business side of initial. So and marks from was. Of course a friend for life for me but he's been. Taking care of me like show like telling me like small stuff to think about Not to wear some. To, wear like a crazy who they on. Unlike when we will grow kiss my God, this is I. I was with Marquis when people were telling him these things, it's come full circle. It really did register with them. That's awesome nice. So. Yeah. I listened to him and. I'm trying to tell these things to Quinn, but he's just telling me to shut up so. You guys are too close in age. He's probably beat it. It's on November. Yeah, it was. It was tough seeing markedly, but it's business a non. Their contract he got because he so. Where would he be bringing you out around? Vancouver I'm sure that was you know if you said, he put you under his wing rock was Roxie a frequent spot. What's are the young guys on there anymore? Is that even a thing? Roxie. Esa actually saw their best one night. That's right. I think we did run into each other at the back Bar Olea. Yes. Though I was get. Can you put my drinks on that little guy over there in the corners cab yet guy with the guy with the gun. I know we've been going to jail tunnel Lutts So, I'm trying to say we go too much butts. Dropout myself but no jail Tom Butts Yeah rock states Have Been Dirt I think three times and the. Three. On where place I would say. Out of there. Are you skating right now?

Is schedule, and I followed them. We were talking every day about they work at that I'm GonNa do for today so. Oregon out the drink. Monday to Friday on Saturday Sunday off. I was to hop in about the training on you see a lot of these high players doing a lot of skill work in the off season as far as hopping in the ice and all of a sudden they're all these movements in and out or cones. Are you doing that on the ice as well as getting in the gym? Every Single Day I'm? Doing. I'm doing more. I stuff more strength stuff. That's what I needed the most but I'm skating once or twice a week to still keep that going but. I'm spending more time in jail than on the ice during the summers just getting swallowed for the off-season at. All inclusive down south. The Vans Popcorn Brian. Don't think work out but I've been working my whole life, but I just don't try to hear the same thing. Don't worry these fifth overall pick they come gone and after our bodies just prove it on the ice body shaming. I think Wayne Gretzky, eight, hundred and seventy pounds. So I wouldn't worry about too much. I'm not sure about the Canadian was allowed to go back to Sweden if you wanted to or a you're talking candidate, what's the situation with that? Yeah I. I could go back today or tomorrow when I come back for next season whenever that starts. I have to Corinthian for two weeks in I'm. I don't WanNA quarantine again.

I want to be thought of a connection I two but then it's a little romantic and then I would have done the same thing you just put the. Light candles. Let's get it going to pop and okay that. Cornell this is one of the young studs league. You probably you know you're darn into the social media and all the craziness you have a question for. Yeah, you did a video at the on the bench guys Sadako. You played some audio you there. I was so fun actually I like being goalie I you. So I told her yet played but growing up by played soccer the whole time. I played soccer goalie. Sorry we had a goal in our backyard back home, and of course, my brother he's older than me.

Your brother must have. been a huge influence for you. He still plays over there. We mentioned that like growing up with he was giving you beatings and we just always doing everything together.

Yeah I had a I had Halloween costumes written down but I don't know I'm kind of bond have actually gone to a party in years but I'm Kinda. bummed I really wish I could've got gussied up as as you start on my photos I sent you earlier. I. When it comes to Halloween I go all in boys she had. To do did you see that house somewhere in Texas that the guy he you know everyone people go crazy following this guy had like faked dismembered bodies on his lawn poetry like fake blood all over the place and people kept calling the cops reporting dead bodies. He illegal one fake body with like a safe had fallen and hit him in the head my. Point fake blood and brains everywhere. That's cool. All fucking following. Unbelievable speaking he's dressed as as me in the summertime right now with that masculine, that is about the same tone. Do you have any good good Halloween stories where it what the what are you gonNa just the kids this is more about the parents now that you have a kid. Oh Yeah. He's A. He's a hammerhead shark he loves sharks. So we got a hammer shark costume. Phenomenal. It's actually my dad's birthday showed open Damn Whitney on Halloween to always fun for us and the scarecrow tat. Yes. So I, I'll probably send him a picture of your tattoo as a gift for birthday dad. Talks Story. Just Bugsy on year I've I've I've I've told that I got a bunch of tattoos on my chest said the shirt open wide I had a big ass bugsy wig on and then just carry it around the bodily Egger. All night did the bugsy voice. So that was pretty funny. We got wrecked. What about the Halloween Party where you and Bugsy trust up more dress up as Wendy's and you pay. Where we ned was in town for that. And Nashville it was. Always in Pittsburgh I don't remember the bar we're out I. I had the Wendy's wig on WHO's he? Oh he was some sort of fast food character I believe I, other story I the last time I told this I remembered what he was, but we just got bockel them. We're sprinting down Carson Street and I got the Wendy's wig on and People Whitney. That's Maloney's chasing me down. We actually ran into diesel. Biz We ran upstairs and next thing I see that came around the corner. He'd already got a size of pizza and slap me in the face with it. So that was just how we'd parties were the funnest time one of the parties of the year. Every year guys you always did he had a day off or maybe he didn't never daffy all grinded through the next day together but. This is also before. Social Media. At a certain point to guy started spreading some serious dough on these Halloween. Yes. Yes. He did the dude from. Owns no one knew he did the night king was that is king the Ice King Oh damn. It must've cost him a couple g's it was legit like Hollywood cost him. So. You don't think many people are going to be doing the fancy ones this year even if. I mean I'm sure there's going to be like a virtual Halloween or something I mean there's definitely going to be young kids having fucking potties won't give a fuck I mean that's that's all you. About. No Shit Yeah Ever costume contest each one of us has submitted. And we have our fans vote on it. I think I could beat you guys know. You. Would you would. You got nothing to do all day besides can cost him. You'd have some like you'd have a staff over like building a costume around you. Re Days Straight and we'd get all dummied in the competition to. Check out a couple of new shows obviously, like I said last week gotTA catch up on my TV and movies busy I. Don't Have Stars and on I actually it was only ninety nine cents during Prime Day. So I got stabbed like ninety nine cents for two months. There's a show on called P. Valley. Sure Okay Sir I'm intrigued it's I'd just signed up. Literally just. Dude. It's a show. It's about a black strip joint in the Mississippi Delta like I had heard about it and I got put on. It's fantastic man I I mean there's not a lot of familiar faces on it maybe one or two but so far so good man I I it's just a real different show I. Mean I haven't been to meet TV shows about a strip joint let alone a predominantly black on located the Mississippi Delta and all the assorted characters that commend based on a true story I don't believe so I mean it might be inspired by. The strip joints in that area to a Mississippi. Delta. But. It's definitely good shit that. Nah. Showtime. There's a pretty good docu series airing lately the comedy store. The Fabled Comedy Gone Comedy Club in Los Angeles if you haven't seen it, it's worth checking out man it's a, it's a pretty big pot of comedy history in America. So if you're interested in that by all means, check it out without spoiling it for the people who haven't seen it. Did you guys watch Bowl Rhett? Pot Saw I. saw on okay why G-? Let's give it Oh, I. Guess we have to talk about it a month from that. So I just I'll say this Ra it didn't do it for me like the first one, but it's still remarkable how he's able to pull off some of these teams and like the one with his daughter dances. God Like gruesome, I couldn't. We gruesome. Summarize but that's it. But there were some scenes man that we're wild it just I felt like. gave me. He wasn't. He wasn't the character as good in this one given there probably has been so much time that had passed. It's kind of like the dumb and dumber guys went back to being dumb and dumber finally again where they. were. Wasn't during that time. So just felt off a little bit to me. I also think it landed flat yeah I mean I'd say, maybe an hour and that was thought to get a little disinterested but correct, I, think also Biz that which changes fourteen years ago you kind of had to entice people to say really stupid shit in front of a microphone on the news nowadays, you don't have to really proud to many people to do it they they. Kind of willing to do it pretty easily. I know a couple of people have already complained that they were framed different. It's like dude, you a strange knock knocking door. Have you simul these papers and fucking you get interviewed and then you're going to be like, Oh, I, got set up. It's like what the fuck you think like just random strangers show up with foreign accents anyone and. You should that should have been a fucking clue. Your radar on their sick PR team. Yeah seriously. So all right. Well, that's the pop culture, a part of the episode. Now, we do have some sad news why we need to get to while obviously beloved Edmonton Locker Room attendant for the oil is in the then as Edmonton Eskimos Joey Maasai he passed away at fifty seven surrounded by family has a universally beloved a figure not only in Edmonton but the sports world who's inducted into the Alberta Sports Hall of fame back in Twenty fifteen he was presented with an NHL, all style award years back. Family released a statement they requested that Louis Flowers donations could be made to the winifred Stewart. Dot Com. I it's an organization that empowers people with disabilities Joey had down syndrome. If you want to donate, just go to the site and Click on donate its winifred steward dot com to ends in Fred. Also Elliott Friedman has a tweet pinned on his page at my easier for you which obviously you you're an Edmonton. You spent some time with Joey share some with us. Off I this is this was tough news to get you know you. There's certain people like you meet in life and you get the chance to around they'll never ever forget the moments you had with them and this guy was unreal and so my you know what I knew about joy before I got to Edmonton was I just remember seeing him in the Oh six cup finals when he would belt out the anthem, he always sat like I. All right. Right beside the behind the bench behind the trainers and he's belting out the anthems unreal and everyone kind of saw them, and just what he meant to the team in there were different stories I think. NBC At the time did a story about what he met and what his role was with the oilers and for people don't know. Wayne. Gretzky Issues Dayton assistant. Vicky and in eighty four I think convinced or the at the oilers agreed he you know he could come on and help and so at the time it was. It was Berry Stafford was the equipment manager along with sparky who lyle. Could Kucharski I. Hope I'm getting his name I preach Park Euro is your sparking to me I apologize but I'm trying to get the story correct and then. Kenny low came on laters and athletic trainer. But so he came in they just they just hit it off right? Like this guy was so happy to be there. He also worked for the Edmonton Eskimos thirty years he worked for these guys and he became one of the boys when I tell you. I, got in and met him. You think like it's one thing and then all of a sudden when he's talking with everyone, he's given people shit. Guys are giving him shit. He was just so much fun to be around and he would do certain things every day that would make everyone laugh like he lived life to the fullest sky was so happy and I think that he did so much more for for guys who got to meet him than than they think they did for him. If that makes any sense I got to talk to Gags, today, Sam Gonyea who wrote. An awesome piece in the Players Tribune, go check it audible what Joy Moss meant to him. They really close I call I talked to Who Work Gags is GonNa come on and tell some of the stories the way he's got a great memory. So we're GONNA get to that at some point this next month but just going over some old things like this guy love wwe, he loved wrestling so much and the year one of the years I was there penner and him would have these wrestling matches. Do they were full blown paper view matches? The whole organization it'd be in the room. And everyone would be absolutely going bananas as Joey would get brought in. He'd get in with his music he'd play the villain. Panel would be swinging this guy around is around his head. It was unreal like the actual wrestling match they had an about four minutes in Joey would take the place who had a robbed as he as he three, a sparky get down. To three. Moss. Vice goes nuts. I actually have a video of it I'll play the. Outweigh the reaction as he pins them. Irene music. Starts Pumping. He's dancing. He'd be sitting in La La la La la La Bama. Bomb. That is unreal on that. So there were so many other things out gags. Reminded me all dude. This guy. No one in the world could drink harder coffee than Joey. Moss? He would take part of coffee that just came off. Thousand degrees, he'd throw it in the microwave for a buck fifty. A buck fifty that's one, hundred, ten seconds. If my math correct and he would sip on this thing that'd be burning through a Styrofoam Cup no problem. He must have burned all of his taste buds or feeling off of his tongue because he crushed coffee at the highest temperature known to man gags goes. We want we lost him at the bar because guys take them to the bar. We took him to Wrestlemainia at the movie theater. We'd have them over guys who have more guys you bring them to dinner every night. GAGS, they took him to the bar they lost them and they look on the dance floor and he's Line Dad's into a country song. Oil City, just. See cogs. Donald bottom of new watch. And every time it broke would go right to. A new one like a watch guy on the team. Love the Ryan Jones went and bought this guy, seventy, five, inch TV everyone went to place the big TV. He already had a sixty five inch or you just want a little bigger one. So he was a bully I love it. Oh. So. Then a like guys who do this all the time you know. You Know Beers right? Maybe if there's a special treat joey capital little bit of I don't know I don't know how that went down but no beer's allowed and so like Horford go over and join me sitting down just slide a beer next to him and be like sparky smokey Joe's got a beer and sparky come flying saucer you two minutes penalty box you have to go stand outside the locker room for two minutes time was up come back in just nonstop like him fucking with guys and guys fuck with him like he was one of the which was one of the. One of the best people ever I think he's GonNa be He's GonNa be so so messed and I said read is article so many former players. Said different things on social media, instagram twitter remembering him, and what really sucks is that what's going on with covert and the borders because there would have been an amazing turn out to celebrate his life and that's socks. So somebody that will never be forgotten anyone who ever met him will never forget them and certainly anyone got to spend a lot of time with them those oilers and then I should bring up now Jeff Lang and Harrier there now td fours and these guys who. Wants the old staff moved on nothing change with Joey Right? He was. He was with everyone else and everyone took care of them and we're all GONNA. Miss Them. So rest in Peace Joe, Moss fifty-seven amazing years and anyone who met you is really lucky. Awesome also thank you hell of attributing. Send it from the chickens family deepest sympathies to Joey's family and many many friends around the world. We would terribly sad narrow. Joe. Again I think that'll wrap up this week's episode.

Of course you're in a great mood. You're back out there playing golf every fucking day and on every Davis but Yeah good amount. Good amount I mean have you. Have you been in the backyard? Practicing on your swing. No because I don't want to RIP UP. The grass laid down some beautiful saw. The pools finished also. I should've mentioned that came out. Incredible at the TV setup outside the grill the chairs the firepit. I mean let me tell you. I'm dialed in this summer. Dialed in I hope you guys come and check it out at some point now. -solutely May I love to Keita Alto? Tv HAVE NO GLAMOUR nighttimes back. This is an outdoor. Tv apparently this thing is is what you need. So let's hope it goes well and it could stay out there all you. I was thinking when I got a fall. Fire Pit Patriots game that get you going after eighteen holes big time. Big Time we do have a guest once again back to one episode a week so if we can fatten it up a little before we can. We have a two and a half Time Cup when his own words? He'll explain it for you to Colin Fraser. Great guests had a lot of laughs at him. Our flew by and we also have Tampa Bay four Alex Cologne to come by. He's a quote unquote influence. And now so he's GonNa talk about being an influence or on instagram now. So that'd be pretty funny as well. You could get some news. I mean I guess it's an update as things kind of truck out here and the Lebron was bent on top of everything from day one. He reported that the return to play committee has made progress on twenty four team format. Now that's not a twenty four team playoff. There's going to be a plan with eight of those teams so technically they'll be sixteen teams in the playoffs if they were to go of this format. There's still talking about having the two hub cities with twelve teams in each city again. Everything is hypothetical possible. Possibility right now. Nothing even close to set in stone still issues about testing. What if one guy test positive is that going to blow everything up and the players want to be cooped up in a hotel room for month. Two months three months at a time. Well maybe two months at a time no family. There's all these other little things that pop up as well one of the note to the NHLPA's executive board voted to further defer a decision on that last paycheck. I think it's obvious they're waiting to see what happens with the season before they probably wait on that paycheck. What what's your take on where we are right now. Baby steps It's just a little hope. I think for people who really WANNA see hockey. Because you're at least seeing what it could look like if it goes down. There's a there's a blueprint that starting to come about. If there is hockey and I I can't see guys itching to get back and play if they go to wait another -nother fifty sixty days after what they've already been through. Since the season cancelled or delayed I the other thing too is the border issue. Because that's just I don't know if you just mentioned that I was just reading an article today. You're even get candidate you can't even back in. It's like only essential travel so at least if it happens you know how it's going to go down and you could start arguing about that but it's still a long way from actually happening. Well let me ask you a question. From play up his back now the players have already been paid for the season. You don't make any more additional money in the playoffs unless you get like a cup on. This is that correct. You'll make money per every round. It goes up and then if you if you win the Cup. I don't know what do you know what the Cup bonuses now is. I don't which I showed. That's right up my fucking alley and going back to your comment Ra. I believe at this point. The players are deciding on whether they're gonNA received their last paychecks because we all know what the escrow situation is going to be like. If in fact they don't come back and play because at this point lost revenue might be one point one billion. I think I read okay. And let's go back to you guys talking. Couple Debbie fucking downers over. There are a your dangling the carrot from Pierre Brian by the way your Kinda dressing a carrot today so it kind of fits perfectly here. Show the proper love. The WHO is saw Bob. Marley love love the fucking IRA guys. I'm an optimist. I think that what they're doing right now. Is they're slowly planning on the return. Let's hope another second wave does. Not Come of whatever's going on out there the corona virus that's going to swoop by and they're going to be able to put these players in a facility whether they decide on Edmonton. I'm hearing that's popping up. I've I've also heard Vegas which to me. Seems like the perfect spot given the fact that they have resorts everywhere maybe on these guys days off they could take a page. Whitney's book and hit the links and make it a safe environment. Of course safety is the number one issue but I am very optimistic. That they're going to do twenty four team roll out and some people are like why twenty four team skies. There's a business component to this. Okay more teams more money. More FANS ENGAGE. Yay sports more gambling. Are we allowed to talk about gambling on this podcast? We are thumbs up from there. You go so every hands. National Penn National Gaming. I'm going to be the optimus of the podcast and I believe that hockey does have a strong possibility of coming back. And everyone's GonNa stay safe and the Arizona coyotes here to be crowned as down the Cup champions yeah. I just don't know how I feel about watching playoff hockey with no with no fans in the stands Biz. I I see golfers coming out. Just move the Ryder Cup back. If there's no fans I don't know maybe in the fall you can't have them even when you start next year so it's kind of a stupid point me if it's to be the case no matter what but. I Don just not sold on the season coming back. I I think if it does be thrilled. Get to throw some action on these games. We'll get we'll we'll have some things to talk about here on the chickens podcast and in the end maybe be a good thing but as of right now I'm on I'm on the Arrow pointing downside with as I'm doing with my pointer finger wit and to touch on your comment. How some of these players not might be that excited to come back and I can understand from a player perspective. Because they're in limbo right now you know. Maybe they're back home hanging out with their friends and it's harder to stay in shape not knowing what's going on I it's it's evident that some of these teams are in places where players have stuck around. I believe they have taken it more seriously. Some teams also have lot of guys coming back from injury Colorado being one of them so a lot of these guys were probably taking it a little bit more seriously to recover from their injuries and get back to possible game shape given the fact that they probably had some rest over the course of the time. They were injured so to me. There are some teams. And we're going to have one guy on coming up here. Alex Colin where tap you got. Imagine all their fucking guys are still in tap all staying in shape a good environment and those types of teams that are staying in shape and taking this break a little bit more seriously than others are going to have the advantage. If in fact this thing gets kicked back up who who are some of the teams you would give the advantage to right now who remain the most disciplined and also had a lot of the same the core group of guys if not the whole team? Stay in one city vagus to me. We talked to revolt. He said the whole team still there. Throw getting after it together every night. Well they ain't GonNa fucking day clubs because ain't open yet you don't think some of those dudes have backyard seasonal. Banger of day club. And that's true. I mentioned my new backyard if we could have. We could have a day partied. Milton Massachusetts guys. That's why through this out there. Social distancing style but Biz. I can't say which team I think I'm GONNA say any the youngest team the youngest team that was in the hunt based on this layoff. And the thing if you're sitting around and you had a date in if you're at a date told you all right. This is when we get going. You need to be able to have a plan to have to have a schedule in terms of when you've ramping up the training when you're going to relax when the couple of days off before the season begins we'll be they don't know anything. So how the hell are these guys going to be staying in shape in which I it's got to be a little mentally exhausting every day going in there and not even knowing where you're gonNA end up and when it's going to happen why I think it's GonNa come down to accountability and leadership. You mentioned the fact that you give the damage to maybe the younger guys. Okay Fair enough. I don't know. Are Those guys who would take the office seriously? Given the situation maybe there's some temptations that are sucking in thoroughbred youth Rome out there and they skate four hundred miles an hour and they all get multiple point games every week. It's those kids are fine but the younger guys they're hockey nerds most too many ways permit. Drink okay so based off what you're saying if things get back going you probably give the leafs a pretty good chance. They gotTa Take Buzz. We talked to Matthews the other day. He seeing the ice through the video game. Okay well why as well drop jump right into that then are watch it. Ira Alqadi I mean Keith. Yandell is must see television. Nbc in the eighties absolutely tuned in of just for him. I mean you guys obviously funny too but we don't get Keith. All the time and he was I put it on. You know I tweeted it to support the squad and then I had for five minutes and I tweeted again like you gotta put this on and that fucking funny. He's just like everybody has a body like that he's the funniest guy the crew and. I'm glad everybody to enjoy what's up. And then this Friday. We'll have a pack Huntington from the Milwaukee Bucks. First Frankie Borelli of the foreplay podcasts. In of all right Frankie fame. Oh Oh all right interested to get your thoughts on that wet. I know you and Borelli go out a little bit with his islanders. Love and I would say I would say his naive us. Is that a word now? You now you have a tae now. Ted Already learned that in journalism school at North Adams State nineteen ninety-three. Oh so you're not fucking with. That's actually a word naievety. The yeah the Noun version of being naive is night naievety yeah. Ra is still high stepping out of the gate. I it wasn't good for you like Marcus. Allen Fair Academy colors onto own. Listen I I know I know some you. People listening aren't big video game people. But we're having a good time. Jumping on these twits streams. I mean it's nice to see the boys Austin Matthews Popeye as well Great catching up with him You know we joked around a little bit seeing these guys personality outside the rink because you know when when they get around the rink sometimes they're a little on edge so stop by. We're doing that and Fridays at E. P. M. Eastern Grenell. He's been organizing the whole thing. He's growing up before our eyes and you. I don't know if you mentioned at the top of the episode. You guys end up taking down. The Washington capitals professional sports team correct. I've come a long way since losing twenty two nothing. I'll tell you guys that much. We took down a pro gaming team last night. We actually had all E. from On the bench join us. Those guys are hilarious and Daddy Padre as well but we had A. We had a squad and we took down a professional gaming team. Congratulations very impressive yet. Klay A world may I? I'm amazed at what these kids. I mean the the cream of the crop making millions of dollars playing video games. I mean some of these kids clarin a million a month from Youtube and shit. It's believed the episode not the episode when when Blackburn Played Carl Senator. We talked about that but I I said that I feel the exact same way like I have the same amount of fun doing that. As when we're recording here I think if you enjoy the podcast even if you're not necessarily gonNA care at all about the video game we don't either really we're just we're just shoot the shit like it's I would. I would have you check it out. I know it's hard for for some of you guys who just maybe still have the am. Fm Radio and your grandkid helps you get to the podcast. App on your iphone but you could figure it out on all our on our all. Our channels are before. I throw it over to you. So during that peop- Blackburn and John Carlson. One I think Ovechkin had an empty net goal and I was actually asking him. I said how many got how many pluses do you think you've gotten because of the empty net goals and I thought Oh vets might ranked top. Ever he is currently sitting third for most empty net goals ever at thirty nine. Oh Okay so you did hear that. I didn't I didn't have second Gretzky. Wet You answer. Who's in second I? He's third all time. He's third currently. That's so hard I'm going to say I'm just taking a goal scores. That played a time. Is Herman Gretzky? This one's off the board. I don't think many people would Aussie Marianne Marianne hosts so with forty. He's one ahead of Alex. Ovechkin right now and it was funny because we were talking on it and coaches usually reward the guy who aren't cheating and think of a guy who's more responsible at both ends of the ice and a horse and who deserves those empty net goals Marian Hossa and of course the great one at fifty six career empty net goals. So thank you to the fan. Who sent that over? After we jumped off the Stream Nice little staff should have thought. Yeah I should have thought of defensive and actually Biz speaking of Very responsible forward to can also put the puck in the opposing team's net. We're GONNA take a call right now.

It's the Grand Bio. Welcome back the spitting chip. Let's on thanks for having me guys appreciate absolutely man. So when did you add influence the instagram by got a kick out of that? Yeah I was just I mean it was something I decided to do during the quarantine kind of make the most of my todd talking to invisible it all started with this dog talk and how it came about really are media guy. Brian Breeze Mun continually kept asking me to do a video for the fans. Corentin videoed. I'd seen like you know twenty players have done it. You know show to the fans wishing they'd get back soon. I didn't want to video like that for some reason and I figured I would you acuity with fans and I was out on my dock so I thought it'd be funny if I did it on. My jet ski kind of picked up. A lot of people started watching so I decided to go see stamkos. Headman mcdonagh on the first episode fans have really enjoyed it. So it's it's been a lot of fun you know even though we joke about it It's been I've been raising money for a good cause while I wanna get into that right away. I want you to explain why you didn't. I think it's awesome that you you got outside your box. In thought of an innovative innovative way to incorporate the fans set are just doing a generic video. And I tell you what man it's been popping off and I couldn't be happier for you. Yeah I know you said like coming out of your box and I know for myself. It's not something I would typically do especially not in season but I remember I attacks Stammer mcdonagh They stand Maria was like no not doing a good start. You know I thought like maybe. I'm Austin funding or whatever. But now they didn't want to do it at first and then He was kind of joking and once they came around to it and once we actually did it and I saw how the fans loved it and the money raising They really got behind it. Actually I'm filming another video tomorrow. I don't WanNa get much way that Stan was involved in itself. He's one guy that's tough to get bass. Let's another guy in the in the media. That's really tough to get an interview auto and I was able to do that so it's been fun. Well it's funny. I think everyone at home should appreciate hearing that. Sometimes you can't get guys. I people say you should have saw him. I WANNA come on never coming on this. Podcast just retired by the way but once they start seeing how much fun you've had and by the way the other part is you all live that close on this channel or whatever. Yeah so that's another softball I know. Yeah that's another funny part like so. I started this for to be a fun thing that identified teammates in. What's real and to raise money for charity? But what's really come of it? It's like the ultimate free agent recruiting video. I mean I remember my my GM problem. He's like I don't know if he was calling me to Kale cut it out. Stop the Graham videos. And he's like man. Thanks so much. These views are great. The fans love him like the ultimate free agent recruiter research in the future. So I think at some point some is gonNA sign here because that video and I'm GonNa get traded because what Biz Biz wants to sell the. What are what are they called? Jetskis with no state tax on the side to also remind the viewers of the on the recruitment video. No no state tax all. They're like we have a team party extend stammer will or head will usually have it. And I'll just go on my jets the over there and then come home. It's pretty it's it's a good lifestyle in and people are back home or like you know when you come back to Canada with the seasons definitely. I'm not going anywhere. I'm happy here. So basically the buck should thank you for getting Tom. Brady and rock. Yeah definitely I have this knack of of assing three questions at the same time. It's kind of goosebumps. Choose your own ending but one of the parts I asked you about. My first question was the charity aspect. Report actually got a year okay. Let's see it. These are the shirts all just. Yeah and you're one of those. Y'All send you guys already gave. Actually I gave one to your buddy. A Buddy Riggs need posted about it but yeah that Hillsborough Education Foundation is is where the money's going to we raised. I haven't checked the numbers. I think it's like fifty grand to selling these t shirts so the people are really enjoying it. But what is basically? There's a lot of kids that live below poverty line Like around Tampa and because school has been canceled. They have no way to communicate with teachers. So like these fourth graders have no way to continue in. And you go to the fifth grade Sometimes Wi fi. They don't have computers laptops so all the proceeds are going to be going to them to help them out to to finish splinter. That's incredible man good for you. Yeah who's did you did you ask circuit chef to do all the The video he made with the Yoga and everything was that was that all his so. That was kind of how this whole thinking about was circuits. Like isn't influence sir. I don't know if you guys knew that. But him his girlfriend Are kind of influencers. They put like videos. That are kind of funny and Our OUR BIG I. It's just threw that in there nor all out. Have you ever done a full Florida? Somebody like Bandana for the whole July August. I have not I haven't done full summer. I've been here until July and then it gets. It gets pretty hot. You know it gets a little hot and then my my golf courses closed in June. So it's closing in ten days so I gotta I gotTa join like another course. Usually I'm not worried about playing this this time. So are you know where he goes my tree all? And if you're a hockey player you go back too much at all in the summers. That's close to feeling like God as possible especially during the pre weekend taught five weekends in my life. Yeah I mean so there's Montreal's a great city in the summertime like the old poor little area in Montreal is gray but degrom. Frey is by far the biggest weekend. You'll get buddies coming stuff. I think I ran into you. A longtime for is in the NHL in a bathroom during the Grand Prix. I never told you. Thank no chance you you big dodging. What do you mean I fought I love you? I had more alcohol and drugs on me and in me my system. Now I wasn't an hour I don't even think I was in the NHL or anything of that point. But I just think you walked by me and so like Mixing Water Bug was like that's fucking Disney. I knew your business the thing. There's that douchebag shell you you're fine you're fine. You're having a good time. We went to that. David Guetta the one night. A new city gas. But a back to you. Twenty-six six fucking goals already. This season you're on pace. You'd already surpassed your career high. You were buzzing obviously disappointing. That things stop commenting earlier. You guys are team were. I'm assuming most the team still down there. You guys are probably keeping yourselves accountable. Given what's at stake for this core group. Yeah if things kick back up. Do you think you guys still have a very good chance at GonNa stab at this thing. Yeah it's funny. I was actually golfing with the Stan today. And Martin namedrop by the reason I brought. That up is that we were actually talking about that. We're like you know what a lot of people are talking about. Like if if somehow someone wanted the cup of there'd be like an asterisk surrounded if foxy came back this year and we're like no man like you know what we're all putting the situation. No one decided this. No one wanted this. And it's just the situation. We're in so Guys are staying in shape. Some guys have laughed That live in the US that kind of drove home but like Florida State Law. Like we're allowed to go. Were allowed to do a lot of things that other states. Lots of do stores basically open right. So guys are staying in shape and We're excited for the prospect of playing again to go back to the football for a second. Who before the box Boxcar Brady? Who Your favorite team in the NFL? Pats yeah pats guy. Well I I went to. I went to school. I went to High School in Massachusetts. I mean I'm from Canada right like I don't I was an alouette fan growing up but I went to school in Massachusetts in high school for two years and then I went to Harvard for forty years so I never. They were so good when I was there. We're we're in high school here. Dot Deerfield Diff- Academy that Gerda School. That is yeah. It's good prep school. What about Mile Ten? What do you think Milton? I drove by it by wits. Place cake eater. Yeah but Milton Academy that's not you. Don't associate that with me. Dad Is that is not who I am. That's Nice area. Yeah it's beautiful. Though it was we were talking a few days ago and you. I know there was rumblings that you might actually get Tom. Brady on DOC talk now. Well who okay. And what was funny. Though about changing you. Reaching out to him was his comment. I'll let you say that you ended up reading a few days after thrown out the end bite. I was trying to get Tom Brady on and by being by say try. I wasn't really trying. I just every single interview I did. I was like now. I'm trying to get Brady on like every are done ten interviews while they're like. I'm just hoping that at some point it will get to him and they'll be like okay. Actually an twenty story is I was GonNA play golf with him last week because he joined the course nearby and one of my buddies in heritage inviting me to go play golf and he's like one group is like. I'm going to play with some of my buddies. And unlike instances like very low key guy like replying with Brady. He wouldn't mention any DOT K. You WanNA come out like we're just GONNA play with. Somebody's like love guys like that and so in my head. I think made it up. That was playing golf with Tom. Brady so I actually sent him a GM the week before saying my Kay you WanNa come on the jets talk show and I was like what if I played golf with this guy and the grand? He looks at the end. He never talks to me ever against. I set them a stupid. The end files relating order the golf course and it's like extensions buds from Lake Nona. They're good guys the funniest part of going to prison. Toss in you. Know The you that Stanton's bodies just as regular old Joe. Schmo buddies hanging down the basement. Was Tom Brady. And then it turns out to be. I was just. I was actually restoring like so excited. Like what am I going to save on? Enjoy marketing. Give him a shake his hand bring cheer. I don't know but none of it happened. How money extensive. So stenson read headman no stenciling. Because they're both Swedish. We ended up playing around last year at his home course lake known a- and he is like the biggest hockey fan you've ever met and so when we were playing golf with him. I mean I'm a bigger golf and hockey fan so I was asking nonstop golf questions. Like how's it playing targeted and he couldn't care less. All I want to know was about hockey so it was fine. Yeah we were asking questions about the Things but he was a super nice guy brought us through his house out of barbecue and ever since then because he lives in Orlando. He'll come down games and we'll play golf with him like you know once in a while it's great man and people don't know. Henrik stents and open British Open champion. He flushes the Engulf Ball. Like no other so. I can't imagine the noise off club when you're playing with them. He didn't miss a green and the funny part was when we I with him. He didn't know our handicaps right. Like we can kind of play like he's a six. I'm a one or two and but he's I'm sure he plays in all these events and he like deals with all these you know amateurs and we're we're trying to get in backbone with them and we're like pay like what are we gonna play what's going on here kind of and he wouldn't give us anything he's like. Oh let's just whatever because I think he thought we were like fifteen twenty taps and you have to give us like thirty stroke J. Like NO DUDE. I could play. Give me five five in the back nine. You'd like kind of figure it out. He's like let's play a cricket match and I'm like Hey let's get going or giving. Dolan he literally so we play nine holes six birdies and he's playing. You guys have more tipped out. It's just so easy. And he like he was playing like it was. I don't even know how to compare it to hockey like us just like playing soccer before the game no practice swings just kinda going up and hitting the ball like the Greens were all punched. Like they weren't rolling. Well just hit every Yeah you could just tell like why guys are so good. I mean when you're at one or two you think you're like pretty good. You're going around your club. Ninety nine S Sarbaz. Go ahead I was GONNA say so stents not invited to the sand bagger no stance a come on. He's a river you guys should come. I mean I don't know if you news down me and had he would love to play you guys all. Yeah we have This is a done deal in terms of sandbag invitational. We'll think about it. You're busy Biz. Hey but The Tom Brady situation that I was referred to believe he was on Howard Stern and how much he loved by using using. I'm over the moon about by starting can all go. I'll go I forget. So I don't know how we got into Stanford and I was just dropping means on me. Was You tom so Tom Brady hours? Lake also a lot of this in my mind I was listening to Howard Stern interview like trying to prepare for. If I had Tom Brady talk unlike cable. Like Howard. Stern's doing interviews. Let me like cigarette. How he gets gets out of Tom but either way like the one so he talks the Howard Stern like. I absolutely loved Tampa. It's the best place. Didn't say that breedlove Stan. And he's like the one thing I don't really liked is that my house is right on the water. Everyone knows where it is used to be. Derek deeter southeast and boaters and jet skiers US kind of roll up to my wife. I don't have a frigging chance now because I'm going to up to his dog. That's all talk talk talk. No I don't have a chance man. I think brock we could have no he used to live in the same community as stammer and he'd have his own boat and he had no idea how to work. It's abuse bumping into the dock and everything and he had twenty like his arm cast on news like Auburn. The dock and Stan Rose Life Gut to normal that. But he's a super nice guy the funniest part thinking that if you ask them a question or two from the stern interviews like Bro y you repeat in the stern and US. Three hundred ninety. Let's see what are you talking about man? A what's I mentioned. You're twenty six goals career high. You must be on the TB twelve diet right you fucking jock sniffer. It's funny man. I was doing an interview guys. So much. Shit about this Like some guy. Joe Smith in an interview. How did you score twenty? Twenty six caliber. You've been doing so well 'cause I had it never hit twenty four and I told him a bunch of reasons but I told him I was meditating. A lot and the whole article was about me. Like changing my lifestyle and become like a meditation guy and now in the room. Look guys will start. Meditation means the guys have given you a hard time but honestly you know when I go like when I put my hand up at means. I WANNA go next question but but sorry for interrupting you I was GonNa also I was going to say. Is I picture? You like an Ace Ventura. Have all the Buddhist and shit like you walk in. You have your own car ceremony. I mean I figure you'd be like a meditation kind of guy now. Oh Yeah I mean. This can't sit still that long. No I'm out timeout. I have started with my essential oils. I'm Mike Halfway there if you can see behind me. You rolled up on someone's dock and shows right didn't you just. You would just stop talking that I'd like bumping on some guys like. Oh Sorry Buddy. I'm just you know I that was so that was my first episode. And it's really tough to demand everything you're on the jets. E It's bumpy. You GotTa make sure there's a good connection because it's live and it's not like if I do a couple of tapes. This'll be good. This is live. People are watching this there. You know watching it and I end up on guys dock and he's coming out thinking. My jet ski broke down. Nobody good I'm going to stand research. Just don't ruin the I cut asshole. He's a good guy. I didn't think I was chirping. You about the meditation aspect. But I would like you to going like this like mental midget or something you know. But for those of you listening when we're on these zoom calls it's hard the communications not there so we got to know who's up next we don't want to each other. So zoom calls are tough. Live is way better. But let's get back to the meditation because I believe that is important. Yeah so I remember reading this book and it was I don't WanNa get too into it. But it was called tools of Titans Guy Tim Ferriss and he basically interviewed think it was like the most successful businesspeople athletes. Everything in the world like this guy did a huge huge book and he said the most common thing they all had I think. Eighty percent of the Meditated no shit so I started doing it last year And it of just keeps you balanced why. I remember when I used to score to get so happy when I have three bad games. I get so down myself and now I'm just kind of like a score. Whatever I don't like display well know how hard time but it's you know. I think it helps. I think that's ridiculous because I play with Jordan wheel and he used to meditate before every single game and their friend. We joke around about it. I wouldn't I wouldn't lay into him. Because this guy is fucking light in the lap you ended up being calder cup. Mvp whereas I talked to friends who do it and I would like to get into your mind down. It's another great natural way in order to calm down anxiety as well. Have you felt it help with that? Yeah I mean had terrible trouble sleeping a lot like especially night after. Dame's so before it before I go to sleep like it just helps you. I sleep a lot better interesting. Yeah I saw you when you're on the jet ski by the Arenas Right near the Canal. You live on you that close to the arena like you jets. Were not close enough. It would take me about ten minutes to get to the to the arena. I always have this dream this dream that basically the bridge gets stopped up on my on. My all live on islands Davis Island and the bridge gets blocked. And there's no way off and we have a game and the only way to get to the game isn't a jet ski and I always just think about that meeting in a suit and just ripping dommage analysis and jet and rolling up to begin because there's a dot literally right there so it could be done chuck chuck in the Jet Skis to the Valet. Guy Taken off your flippers. Nice orange later killer. Do you find yourself judging shows or movies that have jetskis in them like when Kenny powers was out there ripping on his or or even in that tiger king documentary when that whatever it was was buzzing around his or like. Oh I know what what model that is. I don't know any of the models I just know. I've been on CD to get me a deal. They've sent me a bunch of stuff but they haven't given me a jet SKI AT NO I. The part of the reason I started talk talk was because I thought Kenny powers on Jesse was like the funniest thing ever And then when that guy came on tire king It it just made. Even that was a ridiculous Attract tried to mimic it when he's like slow motion biting with his jet skiing audit a his. Is Life stock like this? I mean I could really do it but yeah those kind of part of it. You'd have to have a lot of food to be able to mimic. Oh look very killer. Thank you so much man. It's pretty cool to watch what you've done down there and I i. I had no idea it wasn't your personality and you and you kind of took you a little bit to get into it. So you're you're a natural at it and I appreciate you coming on dude. Thanks guys appreciate when state? 'cause I you guys. I got a video. What's being filmed tomorrow? So I don't know Aga- and sandbags. Dan Forget I would never saw for the meditation thing. I would never call you mental measure for that and you have fucking six goals in the show this year. That's a math guy. But that's like four five times more than my fucking career so congratulated Alex. I just wasn't sure and best of luck to you guys when you face off against the oats in the finals.

He built the Fire Alaskan style which is pretty entertaining in the least. I thought it was hilarious. He launched his unverified. Accountants verified account so. Might want to give Scotty a heads up if you talk to him. He's got to accounts he might want us to verify won but either way he taught us out of the fire was pretty funny to check it out as I did. See that he's He's a gem I've been getting tons of. Dm's about getting him back on already folks. We got a lot of people that get to base. We got through one one year of his career and we play. Goldman played like seventeen years. I don't even think we got past his rookie season. No no we didn't and we still have to talk. Talk to him. I would say it would be be confident in saying we at least get him once every nine months. Would that be a fair assessment? He's going to be in the rotation just like Teddy Priscilla's who by the way who by the fucking way messaged me yesterday and you know who said he might be able to get on here. Danny fucking Heatley. Mr Fifty and seven himself might be coming on he. He his quote was. I WanNa make them beg a little bit more and I said that's exactly what I'd expect from fifty fucking goalscorer. We gotta Beg for them so fans either heaters. GonNa come flying us. Nope it's GonNa take a little bit. It's going to take a little bit of love from us to get heater on this pot. And then it'd be beautiful fifty seven himself and Our would be such a treat to get him on. One of the nicest goalscorers he he he actually asked me for a sign stick one time his thing was you know how normally it's the plugs asking all the superstars around the league when they know their time's coming to an end. We'll heater did the. He flipped the script. He asked all the fourth line plugs slash fighters to sign up sticks forum. And actually when I got when I got asked I thought our trainer was pranking. Me I thought they were fun. When you know a Danny Heatley asked for one Looking forward to getting him on because he is he's a Butte Nice Biz. We'd just obviously talked to Alex Cologne and he played emily. That's the first time I crashed a cup party. Was that arena in two thousand and four so I very fine memories of that Bunn. It's all coming together. A lot of functions way in this episode. Yeah Okay funkaway. Dying to move my fucking table. Let's see we got some other some other news here. The long running minimum wage class action lawsuit. The Canadian Hockey League was settled. Finally the official documents were filed in court on Friday ended a six-year skirmish debating whether the whol. Oh l. the CWM JJ L. play his quote. Employees were quote student. Athletes it sounds awful familiar to fans at the. Ncw down here in the states but in an open letter the H. L. said the agreed upon settlement was for a total of thirty million dollars in several sources say each C. C. H. L. team will be responsible for paying approximately two hundred fifty thousand dollars in damages. Total team payouts will come to fifteen million with the League and Insurance. Cover the rest. Basically the plaintiff said junior hockey contracts or an actual employment contract entitling entitling them to minimum wage and the benefits described. The defense was that plays were student. Athletes in that education package development equipment and off ice programs exceeded what would be earned the minimum wage. So it's like I said a pissing message pissing pissing match similar to what we had down here and the play has one so they haven't divvied up the money yet they don't know who's going to get what but we're talking about several hundred million dollars man that's a lot of Doda. Get SPLIT UP several several hundred. Hold on seeking out. They were seeking one hundred and eighty million in back wages. So I take that back the set of Moose thirty million not hundred. I meant to say several tower. That is so much information given them like a good thing. It wasn't me reading. It won't be tweet as all day but I mean I. I'm shot off episode over. That's IT YEAH. My brain would have exploded. But I'm I'll be looking for my check. I'm excited you know it's like a lot of times. They had these suits though. You end up getting a check in the mail for like forty seven cents from someone. I remember. Someone sued blockbuster veiled excessively fees back in the day and everybody got like a voucher. Fight to free rentals because there was like a base class action suit suing on behalf of everybody so people have nothing to do with it. Sometimes get your. What's your yearly check? You get for being the cook in the back of the town. Unfortunately I wasn't that high up on the call so I don't get residuals for that. That would be nice though in other facets residuals but let's talk about silly lawsuits member. There used to be the top ten list that would come on every year and I mean in the states. It's a lot more ridiculous in Canada and I believe number one was a Guy. One one point seven million dollars because he had a winnebago and in the manual. You set it up where it's cruise control. It didn't specifically say that you couldn't get up out of your seat. He thought it was going to drive the car or the RV. Excuse me so he got up after he put it in cruise across cruise control to go make a pot of coffee in the back of his win Bego. Well obviously the thing crashed but because that it didn't say that specifically in the manual I think you want one point seven million dollar lawsuit unless some fake one but I mean. Can you guys think of any other silly lawsuits top? Your head will. It's funny mentioned the our the hot coffee. Mcdonald's one is the original one. The person who spilled hot coffee on themselves and then sued. Mcdonalds. Because they weren't one that the hot coffee they just bought was going to be hot. That's why it says hot coffee all over fucking hot coffee cups now because of that. I got a dumb lawsuit. Sophia Franklin Verse Barstool Cloud The cloud. She's soon barstool. No I mean that's why people think she's Oh. Yeah that are we talking about that host? Let's do it now. It's out how stupid. How dumb are these two girls? Have you ever in your life? Heard of a deal that Portnoy on his non-private roof deck gave to those girls. Do what do you make a year on the instagram account? Once they would have owned it all this. I don't know I mean I want to say I called this one seven months ago and I think the video still on fucking youtube. I'll let you finish but yeah that was that was. It's just the I think everyone at this point knows the whole story. If you don't check out daddy speaks on. Call Her Daddy. They tried to go behind the back of Barstool and completely screw over. David Erica. Who Listen that. Podcast took off and shot like a rocket. Up The charts. It would not have happened with. Oh barstool the same way. I openly always tell everyone. That's the exact same thing that happened to us. Okay so these girls to try to take and and get rid of Barstool after what they did for them and mind you there. There's they're crying poor the whole time. They're making half a million. They work one day a week. Do take some nine hours to record one of those episodes. It's just incredible the way it all ended in Biz. I didn't know you called it in your whole discussion when they tried to do. I mean I called the fact. They weren't good human beings and listen. I'm going to hammer on because they're young and they made a very very very dumb decision. What upset me the most about it? All is the fact they were willing to drag barstools named the mud in order to get what they want and got exposed for it. That is that is unexcusable. And the fact that Portnoy and and a lot of people have barstool were probably upset at the fact that he gave people who are being that ungrateful people who were being Shitty to the employees and the people that had you know help get that company to where it is who now eventually gave them their following. And I can side with Portnoy on this where a lot of people were like. Aw that's ridiculous that he would have given the IP. The reasons even said in that podcast. We're an unsettling times right now and considering sports aren't on and it's a sports network. They might be leaking oil a little bit so what he was prepared to do. Offer that up so they can make good money for the next year and maybe keep some employees employees staffed so if anything he was going to eat that one in the end but he was doing so in order to keep everyone on payroll which he's done since this whole fucking thing happen what's he done. Ozzy's continued to pump. Oh bangers now I know you guys are probably Bellamy stroking him off going back to the girls it was it was really fucking Shitty and then now what Sophie is is all well. She felt slighted because Alex had gone behind back. And what I think what she's referring to is the fact that Alex had went in and ask Dave for raise behind her back when in fact I mean we all know based on the information that's out was Alex was doing more the work. She was the one editing. She's brought Giovane money. Why wouldn't she get more money? Poop pants right so listen. I hope it in a perfect world. It gets reconciled. They come back to Barstool they keep it going. It doesn't look as if this is gonNA happen now. The other funny aspect of it is the girl who went into Barstool to interview. Dave and I believe she worked for H. B. O. And he explained the whole engraving the spades bottle because when his enemies lose he likes to celebrate that. Yeah it's a little bit diabolical as he said well this dude from HBO who was willing to basically drag Dave and his company through the mud to get his girlfriend. What what he what she wanted but by no means was entitled to it. Fuck him to. That's some rubbish. Asked bullshit play out your contract. They'd already ren renegotiate. I believe a couple times since they'd even started. They had two years left on it. Plato make your half a million and then you can walk and go wherever you want and but busy. You're not the the best part of all of this is that they're podcast was Field dominance no guy does anything to us we take these phone took it out some cloud from HBO. Looks like the dude from Shrek like the the looks like the Lord Fox Heart Lord Qua- Lord Farquaad so incredibly enough. A guy breaks it all up and take a hike. I don't feel bad for those girls. Not One bit date the deal of a lifetime given to them and they turned it down like morons and I think it shows how reasonable Davis and that's exactly how years if you want to go talk to them about somebody you could walk in his office and he'll be straight up with you and as I said I'm I talk about it all the time. I'm a second chances guy. I hope they can reconcile. I hope they get back together. Everything gets patched up and even I would go over and say you know we've had our beef in the past. I think what you did to try to do to the company is very shitty of you but hey I was young and dumb. Wants to. Let's all laugh about it and go have a couple pink. Whitney's so I wish him nothing but the best but that was phony Baloney Bullshit. What was the alcohol they're talking about? No idea wasn't pick Whitney quiz was the creepiest thing you've ever said on this. Podcast heads anything in a law. That was I had the under put it that way I me and Biz talked about it before. I think they are really really really really bad advice. They made some really horrible decisions and and for anyone listening. It's a prime example. If you ever feel like you're being slighted or not getting what you deserve at least have the sack to walk into your boss's office or whoever may be involved and tell them what you think is fair. There might be some back and forth. You might not even end up there but at least lay the cards on the table. Be a straight up person. Look someone in Eye Tom. Exactly what you think. He deserves the weight. The way they went about it is just. That ain't that ain't being responsible adult. That's being a fucking Brat. Yeah I think anyone who listened to Dave take. Dave doesn't lie. Dave calls it like it is and you figure out what went on there. I mean you know. It's it's clear what went down and I think there's not too many people on the other side rooting for them folks. But honestly when I thought for the first time during this whole quarantine time that we might be in the Matrix was in the official looney tunes account of Bugs Bunny Fame. Don't worry I have this project trying to get off the ground. Let me know you interested interested. Hashtag call her granny the granny from the bugs bunny fuck it and I can episodes of my fifty years ago. Like I'm like what fucking planet are we in Looney. Tunes is tweet net basketball about a call. Her Granny puck and buckle world. And Right now. It's yeah it's been. It's been a pretty crazy week Happy Memorial Day weekend. By the way I think are a mentioned earlier. Then what transpired is the fact that you know days been hemorrhaging money in the stock market. But he's trying to fuck every soup known to man right now and sure enough. The day he hits a million dollars in one day You know investing was what the next day after that podcast had come out so it was it was. It was a good week for Dave and unfortunately he's lost a big podcast but he made it back up in in the stock market. Yeah like you said. He's got more money than he can. Council couple of the notes before we get it over to our Buddy Colin phrase Pal EAGLE RUSSIAN REPORTER FRIEND. Is he got a new GIG. He tweeted out now.

Great teammates so congratulations on an amazing career. Fifteen years where did he go after? Edmonton did you go to Dallas. Take Montreal maybe I. I don't know the exact wrote but he used he might.

Thanks for having me. I gotTa say first off what you've done here. Unbelievable I mean think about. We're just a bunch of dumb hockey players and give you guys a lot of credit for guys that this takes a lot of work. Not that I'm a radio guy or a podcast. I but it's a lot of work you guys do so I tip my hat to you guys. Good job it's funny. You mention that just a couple of dumb hockey guys all make something work because my father actually said he's can you stop saying on their that. You're dumb because I paid a lot of money to send you to school. Your Life Osorio. Just being honest. That's how the show run that figure it out. That's how we roll right dumb hockey players but yeah. I don't know you guys are smarter than give yourselves credit for you got. We got goons. We got YouTube channels. We got it all going here so fragile. We never got the answer two or three times. You've had your name on the cup. Okay so all cleared up took on the cup twice so I like to tell my son and his buddies that it's two and a half two and a half because twenty ten. My name is on the cup. Twenty twelve my name is on the Cup twenty fourteen. My name is not on the COP and as the story goes you can only have so many. I Dunno spaces lateran. Whatever I played thirty three games. I believe you have to play forty one in your automatically on Oreo after play game in the finals and I did neither but round to let him finish around two. Were playing Anaheim and we call up. Jeff Scholtz. Jeff shoals played for Washington over four. Nhl Games really really good. Men didn't play all year for US regular season plate like six eight ten games in the playoffs We don't win. If we don't have Jeff scholtz fill the void for the injuries we had and he got his name on the cup and and rightfully so. And I didn't so I say two and a half because I got a full playoff share day with the COP. I got everything else that comes along with it. I just didn't get my name on the Cup while here. Around the spitting chocolates podcast. We use you just hand those out. So we're going to say three time Stanley Cup champion. We actually reward guys who don't get two thousand games around here because we get selfish that big at the price for the boys they get all chip in for the watch reward. The guys who stopped short like Markov at Nine Ninety Wall. I mean I is lucky to get three hundred thousand. I didn't get a thousand ships in the league. Let alone so. I'm happy where I got three Stanley Cups. I wrote a lot of coattails to get there as happy. These guys took me there. Let's put it that way. Fraz bent US three combined. I don't think have a thousand and all the friends we made. And you've got three cups for us so great job pretending we have friends and trying to still make. I don't know I don't know let me on anyway. Well let's let's start all in the beginning. I'll handed over to Rx actually acid anything yet. Nah I haven't but that's quite all right first off where you hold up anyways. I'm hold up in beautiful. Sylvan Lake Albert. It's just Western. Red Deer Twenty minutes. I played my junior hockey and read your met. My wife never laughed marginally from ABC straight smack in the middle of Edmonton and Calgary. So you got half ends fans half Calgary fans and if you've been to Canada we know Rick. Have you ever met wreck? The infamous rick from DEA ticket holder at the rebels. Grab wreck yeah. He's he drives some of the boosters to school and stuff it's crazy. Rick is a guy that with describes as the guy in between like you said Edmonton and Calgary who is either reading rooting for both teams and every morning on the radio. When they're talking about either team he's punching the steering wheel because he's that big of a hockey psycho pass up to eighteen thousand general managers sitting in on okay when when we played in Edmonton it was trade sheldon. Surrey's well you know you don't think they've tried to do that. Tried to five million in Hershey. He's a fan of the show. Know the best thing ever. It's listening to real-life callers and they you know they got a go gates again and get hallways again and well. What do you to trade to the Bruins for again? I don't know Fraser and Whitney those deals all work. I know who you want. You can't get a certain ways. But are you still playing are you? Are you done skate? Noah many done now I Finished in Nurnberg Germany in Twenty fifteen long story short is only thirty one but I lost my passion man. I play in the NHL. Then I played plug away in the American League for year and then I plugged doing Germany for three months and they didn't see Christmas and I hung them up in and that was it. It's not that physically couldn't do it. I just got a zoo. Apply any more. I you guys know kind of player and four on straight grinder. Thought I'd go to Germany and be some powerplay specialists and I was still a straight grinder unauthorized. Tell you great country. Had nothing with the League. Prostate played in is listening. You guys episode the other day of Prostitution Same Place Beautiful City guys a beautiful city law. Germany just didn't WanNA play hockey anymore. That's okay I got ask it. He was very hard on the refereeing. What's your call it is? I started laughing when you when he's talking about it because it is the it is atrocious. It's literally atrocious. It's our coaches and North American coach. Rob Wilson Coaches in Peterborough now. Great coach awesome coach and he played hard. He wanted to play hard but only for the first forty minutes in the third period. It became this. Nobody had anybody. You're not allowed to hit anybody anymore. Considered take any penalty. Call anything then. My goodness clean hits it. It was crazy you just. It's true hundred percent true. What he said you blow guys up. And they don't care they don't care they'll just they'll call poop bally's five on three phrase. I WANNA go back to red deer for a second. Had some art is on that squad. Do you want if cam would future cons might win? But we got asked about Colby Armstrong. Was he was? He is much of a character back then when you played him as he turned out to be when he used the best absolute character. He's he's exactly he's exactly what he is on. Tv is who he is. I mean he's he's funny he's Jokester. He's he's serious bone in his body. You know knowing and he reps on himself like nobody you've ever seen that knows he's got a Oh. Can you not rip on Yourself? Eke You gotta get ahead of it. You played already know like he's a legendary. Read your rebel for sure legendary bomb glad. Ra brought it up. I guess we'll get into it right now. That would you describe red deer or at least at that time. The London Knights of the West. Well yeah I mean they had. They won the Cup two thousand. I wasn't there a came the year after and we lost in the finals to Kuni who ended up winning. They had Jarret stoll mayor. Nigel Dawes must have been a rookie there right. Yup y'all would have one is a sixteen year old Yep A really good team. In my second year we lost to Cologne and the finals and they taught Georges Shea. Weber Duncan Keith. Heard of them. Yes the list goes on and they picked up Duncan Keith. He was at University of Michigan. And they pick them up in like all fun and he just knew fuckers here we goal perfect neck and neck with these guys and they picked up dumping key so we lost to them in the finals and then my third year we lost in the in the semi final. We had good team was a good run for four five years. Aaron Read Your Yeah for sure I mean I looked at your first year there. I think seven guys. That team went on to play at least one hundred games in the NHL. Let's just dive into it. What made it such a a winning environment What was it ran like and just dive into that. Will we had Brent? Sutter was her coach to old school. We all know the sutter brothers. We all know how they run. And I personally I brand. I don't think I played in the NHL Without Brent. He runs a tight ship. He all business but guys buy in. We had a lot of guys played harder and would was just smoke and guys like putting them in the hospital. Just drilling them. We guide we'd play like no mercy like wit not not your type of game with knows of cringing as you're describing this hockey what are you talking about we? We're like the number Idaho. Two three one ranked team all year and we lost two games back to back Friday Saturday both overtime both at home. And we're supposed to have a rookie party Saturday. Night and Brent was just fuming so we had the rookie party anyway and we had become to the rink Sunday morning for the seventy M Bagger just hung over guys. Let's go mercy like you said Dionne enough that underage year he. I think he had close to twenty goals and he was fighting. Everyone and I mean he became probably the number one defense of prospect for the draft for the next year. He was so good he like. When I say he'd kill people. I keep cat like Scott Stevens guys like across the middle of the ice and he was us a sixteen year old player but he was you know Biz like he does man you get zero Fox now. Anybody is and is that confidence. An that is what made him such a good player as a sixteen year old. He's running around like a twenty year old just chirping every beginning at least at the beginning when I first saw him playing the NA chose rookie incredible. He's he's the quickest feet like he. These quick crossovers and just light people up trying to cut this guy. He's thirty years old and he was eighteen nineties. Two hundred and ten pounds is a sixteen year old so did it does not lack confidence and didn't lack sick even even then in junior like that guy. It has nothing to do with making honored million dollars. He's like us the same guy. Fifteen years old that a played under eighteen with them and we went over to Europe and I don't think players there had ever seen someone hit that hard and I'm GonNa throw already real quick after this when he hit him there. Was this like thud where you could feel the person's soul leave their body. You could just a little ghosts would go up to the and and some guys they were like never the same. They just got hit that hard. They got scared so sorry I rambled on there. That's all right. I wanted to ask was college ever on the table five. Did you have any office? We go in the hallway. You know what my dad always wanted me to go to college. He made a deal with me. If I wasn't a first round pick you would have liked to go to college but if it was and I was. I ended up going first round red deer so was kind of like do is done. What's not a big deal read? There's a lot of guys behind. That are still so there you go. I was I was the early giant. That was good at hockey because he was already six feet tall walk. Everyone started catching up. Your shit literally literally but I never really considered it. No I was from Kamloops Blazers Fan just from from the glory days in Kamloops and I was like I was hell bent on the Western League all day long boyfriends or buts about it. You would drafted by Philly. What was it two thousand three? Is there a potty of that was bummed out you never actually got the play for the flyest given the history of the franchise and Shit? Yeah it's kind of weird because I didn't really feel any ties there. I didn't have any other instead. He roots down. I didn't really know anybody on draft day. They picked Micra turds whatever. It was tenth or Eleventh Twelfth and then they picked Jeff Carter eighteenth or nineteenth and then they didn't have a second round. Pick me sixty ninth and I said Fuck Me Centerman Centerman I I am. Hopefully the third line center someday. There's no chance I'm playing on this team anytime soon because these guys are unbelievable played. I didn't play like juniors whatever I knew how good they were but I mean in their careers speak for themselves but I I was disappointed wrong word but I I was new is going to have an uphill battle making that team so I got traded a year later as riding the bus from red deer to Saskatoon and Brent Sutter's the only guy with cell phones like the big like Zack Morris. Lights and it was poem grim call. This called me on the boss on the way to Saskatoon is traded to Chicago. So it's kind of like wasn't a big deal it was just. That's it moving on okay. If you're if you're in the minors or something it's so much different when you're playing junior okay. So tell me where to go when it's time longer my signing bonuses the same signed yet. Oh you're on that world junior team in North Dakota time I was. Yeah Yeah No shit team. We've talked to so many guys that have just said that. Never seen anything like that wall. I go back summer camp. They busy you go to the summer camp. I don't all the no chance for the world junior camp. Yeah yes I did. I went to that summer camp. Me And Mike. Agnew almost fought and then I mean I. I don't think I should have been invited back for the Christmas one but I think that pretty much did me in because they said no fighting and we almost square square. He was a tough fucker from the West. Was A fucker real cave. My face and to be honest. Squirrelly is where. He'd looked like he wanted to kill someone. Yeah when the wires cross one of those where it's like all fighting a guy who was on coke at the bar where you're like. Oh my God could punch this guy. Swear in the face and nothing's going to happen. He's a machine. He's the terminator at this point. He was the terminator he was. Played Calgary down the road but world juniors. I don't remember this one Biz but me. Me and dion fought world. Juniors to both teammates. Red Deer. Dion kept going after and said was on. On on my scrimmage team so I went after dion new. I was on the bench and dion like pulled like down the bench and out the gate literally. I'd be suspended. Ten ten games. Say This is summer camp and me. And him fought this the last scrimmage. The day and Brent Sadler was the coach so he's our rebels coaching. He calls us up to the office after the game and he's pretended to be mad. You dumb bastards. How does this look? This is red deer rebels and mean me dion. Start laughing and then Brent starts laughing. He's like you dump red suit. Fight A WORLD. You cut the shit you guys on it. All we're stupid goes to all the Games changed like just stupid shit. I Dunno like just kind of happened. It wasn't planned. It was just one of those dumb things that all kind of came together dion. Why sticking up for your like fake teammate. Scrimmage trying to be a hero say trade to Pittsburgh takes care of me like he did. That's the mentality dion hat. Though he wanted to go at the best and and I respect them for it. He made a lot of money because of neck. Nobody told me the other day he still thinks he can play. And he says this is the perfect opportunity because everybody's probably been boozing and hanging out so he's a little bit more old school so he probably could just up and balanced right in especially especially as he would say for playoff hockey he could throw those hits and maybe not suspended twenty games. This guy's alleged. Vip got to get him on the show here. No he says when he retired. So I've been trying to rush him to retire and he I think he still hanging on. That's why he might come back for for playoffs. I mean there's twenty twenty four teams that could swoop them up might be a double episode and Honor Double D on legit Bizet. Never at U eighteen when Dion bids was the only guy still sporting would sticks at the time was Kinda in that would stick changing over to synergy and everyone had synergies accept this. I could get his sold his commitment issues and other every other area of my life except for my would fucking twigs. He and he sold his synergies and bought some food clothing. And then he got some sheep wooden. Sherwood's for free so deonte sticks and this there's three hundred people in the stands the two hundred and fifty of them are scouts and cuts all checks. So we time we're in Europe ready to play games. I have a three woods sticks left that he got them all Chris. Go Up for brackets an every stick called in advance. How you all this story? I told the about when we got over there. The first practice we were we own around and a happen with the. Here's the funniest part about it. Was I think when it all ended I had to sticks left okay and he given one away to someone on mcnally only got one left and then as the was pulling away from the rink and PS Johnny Slovakia? He's a hey business that's your stick and he'd give it away to another kid out there and he was waving goodbye. Went back with no fucking sticks because a double the and I showed up with twelve fucking woods sticks a two week tournament that son of a bitch and for a big tournament like we want we want to make the NHL. Knob is doesn't have any sticks to the CL- I was getting clown like you said I appreciate you have my back on this one. I should be more upset at Dion. I should go after them for some of my signing bonus because maybe I lost a little bit there. He's got enough doesn't his body. I know I know some people just because of his time in Toronto but I felt his time in Toronto. You should respect them even more because us taking it on the Chin there for the whole team at the time and I love him. I think he's a guy who will a lot of people will change your opinions on once. We get him on our podcast. He's great he's Great Spent four years in red deer. We laughed a lot. He's married to Alicia Cuthbert and he used to watch the movie. What's the movie? She was in the National League. No all two hundred talking about drill next door and this guy was in love with her before even better than then meet certain. Mary's IT meant to be a conic. So when you got traded and then turned pro what a guy to go within Vandermeer And he wasn't here and the red deer rebels. I didn't play with him. He's a little bit older than me. But yeah okay. They got all the brother. I played at the younger brother. Ted There's five five of them calling. Can I hop in we got? We got peed on recently. All He'd have some good stories. Oh yes he did he. I bet you didn't tell you story when I when I fought him and beat the piss out of them in San Antonio I'm just joking. I didn't beat him up so every time I see him. I say remember that time when Canadian San Antonio Frazier going after him so you have last say you could say whatever the fuck you want. You'll be knocking on my door here any minute just to read you top this hell and I just wanted to pretend I was a hero and get square off of them. No Fuck No. Oh God say crazy no no no. I didn't do that. I just Kinda went. After Mitt the benches he kind of slapped me around and threw me on the bench and then he came in the locker room after he said what the fuck do it trying to hero trying to get out of the minors exactly making a look. Good phrase before you did get called up the Chicago the couple of guys you play with a couple of characters James was new ski in Dustin Buffer. I WANNA ask about buff Obviously him in. Winnipeg just parted ways. Were you surprised by any of what went down and how? He kinda marches to the beat of his own drummer. He definitely marches to the buffs. The happy go lucky. Nicest human being. You'll ever meet in your entire life like he is. The Best Prankster jokester. No bad days one of the best guys. You'll have never a bad mood. Never too bad mood like guy makes seven million bucks. He's just hopping around even in the minors. And he's making fifty grand hopping around matter. Happy guys happy to be. There just wants to hang out with the guys. He wants to drink beers. He's old school throwback guy pulls up with a groin poll every summer camp in Chicago somehow randomly would get injured every cancer. A work outs one of those guys. Got To get away with anything you want. Because he's so good as far as the situation went pick. I don't I don't really know what happened but I mean clearly he he he just doesn't WanNa play anymore. I think he just Kinda guy leaves. She made enough money. What more does he need broadcast? I think I think that that's another guy who could probably him up right after this break right now just stepped right in. I can't imagine his off season. Training was ever that elusive. He's chops right now for a comeback. He's like now. We're even playfield bitches. Let's go yeah. He's just an athletic guy. I mean he's just an athlete. He's an athlete bottom line so it doesn't surprise you to all that he essentially walked away from fourteen million. Yeah I mean why surprises me. I didn't I mean it's not something that I think. He I knew but at the same time he just didn't WanNa play so he's not the type of guy that's going to gut it out. He doesn't need the fourteen million so he can fire some my way. If you'd like to ball sh shoot it over to Sylvan Lake. Hey I'm wondering you was three full years in the minors and then like your time came that going into that training camp your fourth year. You was that like I'm making this team. No doubt are- still like I don't know man it's tough roster crack a little bit of both and. I saved because now when you go to camps now salary Cap Yada Yada. They have their thirteen Ford. Seventy like it's hard to crack team like generally speaking have the roster set. We had three open spots. It was just the Hawks. If you're a member were brutal. And they were jude on start around the curve. It was two thousand seventeen and cane or their Patrick Sharp there. They got Duncan Keith. They got Brent. Seabrook all like as rookies or maybe their second or third year and they're just starting around the curve so I was. I was hell bent on making the team. Because I knew there spots were open I was not penciled in. There's no way I was just meat. Potatoes Guy Man. I just went into camp with kind of this. I don't give a fuck attitude and I'm GONNA leave it all out on the ice in. I fought every single scrimmage. I fought every game. And if you guys have ever youtube me. I've never won a fight. I've ever been probably the club by join the club baby but the checks cash you hit it on the head. I always had this theory like when they're on the airplane when say the coaches management whoever they read my name even not my ass kicked the read by name like this was my theory like oh. The fans are going through the score. She better than having two zero zero zero zero shots on net. Zero faceoffs zero hits. It's at least there's a five mixed in there so kind grabs your day. You say guy who played. I don't know ten minutes didn't do anything you say. You remember him and everyone says no and they say oh well. He's the guy who got in that fight and like. Oh yeah I remember that those crazy get the shit kicked out of them but that was awesome right. That was my theory. I mean so I don't know I fought eating the perio- probably guide refunding Awhile Biz. But I thought middleweight guys. I don't know I I. I gave and Mass Square Garden. I fought Ryan Callahan. Who's not a fighter? But I mean I was Anna's g I thought I live the good life here a twenty three year old and Madison Square Garden. That's that's why I feel like people coming on. Read around that time and probably still do is even though you were probably at the time you left the first line center you are playing the full two hundred foot game so for you to go. Adapt to play in. That wasn't necessarily the biggest shift. You just Kinda had to add more the fight in your bag. Maybe a few more block shots in there and carve out the more meat and potatoes side and we touched on the world juniors. But that's the only reason I made. The team was filling a role so in my head. I knew I wasn't a top six player but I had these bottom six intangibles. That could make me a player fighting being one of them and it wasn't a winning. The fighter being tough was more about just I guess adding it to my game so So that's something I scared to do. It's not something that wasn't that big of a problem for me to do it. I picked my spots and I tried to choose wisely but guys. I'd meat potatoes marinating. I do is full throttle so for having beers having a hundred for golfing. I'm all in and we're playing hockey. I got one year. It's fucking hard. That's it to it. So that's all I know you had that joke. One vote would In Chicago the Blackhawks. What what kind of affected he have not only on your career but also knew as a person. I've heard a lot you know. He has a very very close a lot of his players queue. The He's probably the best coach really ever see that because he felt as a fourth line guy. When you feel like you're just Kinda keep taken up roster spot sometimes in just eight minutes to the top guys arrest Q. Always had a good way of managing his bench and making everybody's role feel important. The best thing he bid is his bench. Management is outstanding and it wasn't like so much as line matching it was like as a fourth line guy. If you're having a night he lets you run and you play fifteen minutes in. It'll be two minutes left in the game and it'll be to one game and he'll put you out there and if you're not having a game then only play six minutes and that's it and he doesn't say anything to you. He doesn't need to say anything to you. Just know where you stand so I respect them for that reason as a fourth line guy just given me the opportunity to play and when you're playing well you get rewarded. I love this stuff. Because I knew you'd be able to like give us a deeper dive all these these personalities I mean. Let's talk about the big boys like you're seeing Taes. Cain just bring it to a different level. I mean the one thing that these top players tapes. Cain the La guys that played dewey and Co Petar and these guys are like their competitiveness like is through the roof. You guys have played at these Shane. Donor crosby whoever like? They want to be the best every single day like watch Patrick Kane. Now he's thirty one thirty three or thirty two years old and he's still like every game like you made the buccaneers the on the best. I'm the best and like you never loses fire like there's some in them that is like you can't teach that stuff they just have it and consider yourself lucky dowd a front row seat to watch these guys and some of the goals. They scored Quin be on the bench and tasers address three guys. He'd be like h how he loved. He loved it as much as anyone else loved it. He'd be like Oh bad in the middle of we were winning every game though. It's easy to be like that. Nobody loves wedding more and he'd be all after we win. All the boys at everybody knew out you find out. He hit a big horse race. He was less than two on the side the whole time we were. We were playing Vancouver in round round two. Have Been Twenty Ten and Kentucky derbies going on right April right? Maybe me off Sallie Mae. Yeah so we He's in the horses. I don't know what not so I can't explain it. But you can hear him in the back room because he hit whatever he bet. Run you bastard rod and then he comes in for the pre-game about herb. The pregame speech is like nothing happened. All Right Watch the AKZO WATCH BOROUGHS. Make sure we have a good gain here. Here's the best. We Love Shit. I WANNA go to game six cup that year. Did you know Kane scored right away? 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. So didn't matter for me. Twelve million bucks or twelve hundred bucks. It's everyone treated the same and if you're not playing he'll ride you and he'll let you know so. I guess I mean I don't know if guys like that but give credit because it didn't matter to him who you were while since we're on the subject didn't he have an area banshee called millionaire's row or something the best hey copy. Why don't you come take a seat down millionaire's row it's like Mike Richards? Jeff Carter Dustin Brown drew. Doughty we get Jerome's autograph I can get it after the game for you. Like they were all laugh to. Who'd be all sitting there laughing and then? I laugh because I had actually get a play a little bit more. So you double shift time. Unbelievable he it'd be like me. Jordan Nolan and clipper. Go go to the powerplay. Go go go on our player but do you think the most minutes you played in. Nhl Game was on maybe fifteen five gas. I don't even know I would. Often I would add heart attack man. I played eleven in Edmonton One night to assist second star. How are you I? I couldn't even get out of bed the next morning. I don't know how guys were doing it at twenty minutes a night light at both ends like every game or yeah yeah that's true or to bring it even further. I mean since we're in. La Talk drew doughty. What THE FUCK. That is a farm. Animal alternate competitive like He. I don't know he's just so good name. What does he do? That's not good. He does everything so good. What what do you make of all this battle? Alberta him in CA- truck going at it and all that isn't it nice to see this stuff. Yes yeah we talk about how great it was when that was all going down in the lead up to the next game the best. And it's so it's so rare now it's missing it's and is it really hatred. I wouldn't even call it hatred. It's just two guys that are very very good players very very competitive guys. Both seen screw you. I'm better Nuno Fuck you. I'm better than you. So it's like it's nice to see like I bet you those guys met. They'd go for a beer and they laughter asses off like it's not a big deal. I love the story I think do. He's pretty funny right like he got chirps. They both got a chirp each other. I Dunno do. He's like such a good player. I mean what can you say about him? He's just does everything right. And he's not even a guy that's like a super fitness freak or a guy that has to crazy but when the game is on he is on. That's all there is to it. I gotTa ask you a quick story about Did he when Sutter came in the room one time and he was given a pre game speech he just ripped the biggest far like you in the room for that one. I don't remember but I wouldn't put it past them like in the middle of talking and do he's bent over bare ass and soldered insane. Fucking word like MJ ship. You doing son around good relationship. That might have been a made up story in my head but we're sticking it. We're going with it what we're in the finals. Do Twenty Two all and you know light God in a room. There's all these chords and there's like headphones on the floor for TV or radio or whatever and you can hear the guy through the headphones. Whoever's in the truck like Jack Jack Jack it's at our meeting and Darryl's could snap it and he goes over there and rips all the core Donald Wall but you could still can still. You're the Stanley Cup finals. Guys you can still hear the the guy on the on through headphones like Jack Jack Jack. And then our cystic cheat did last week goes on. And there's a knob on it and you like we're all dying. We're crying laughing was awesome man. Oh my goodness ask the Shit. That makes this podcast. So forget of all whatever known ripping laws on why is that does absolutely nothing but got the boys going. Didn't it is awesome. We're that's funny. Shit. I wouldn't pay to watch that guy. Go turn the KNOB down right now. It'd be there live in the room just turns it right down. We're all good everything's good. Hey I feel like you and Scuds must've got along pretty well. Yes Scuds me. Yeah he likes beer. He's all ears. He would hit Scuds for pre game meal today. Peanut butter. Jelly sandwiches voice got four kids. It's like get me. I can eat jelly sandwiches. For Pre game meal phrase you take on say Kotai might be one of the more underappreciated players in the league much underrated but under pre he gonNA say here. No this guy like the question I liked it. I mean let's hero. He answers it I that he was one of the best players he ever play quit. He's every bit as good for me. Is Name Your Selke. So Name Your Burger on your kids your kesslers whoever's up for the SAKE EVERY YEAR IF COPAYS IN CHICAGO LA Surrey Chicago New York Name. Your Market Montreal Toronto. We talk about for a selke every single year. He's like the ultimate Two-way Centerman one. Hundred points a year. But he only gets seventy because he doesn't cheat he's wholesome down to Earth normal. Nice good guy like that's it the best. He's every bit as good as those guys for me. Having played with them Brings it every night? doesn't get enough recognition. So that's me looking. It's our air like that. I I wanted to hear more. I don't mind I don't mind the stroke off sessions also stroke off. I got plenty plenty of guys on that team. I mean one Jake Jonathan. Quick don't like my goodness for I don't know if he's as you WANNA BASMA. I'm not sure but For a big game. Like if I've got money on the line and it's a game seven like he's my guy all day long cause he is plays his best games in big games and we're like if you have that guy in your net like he's though huge maybe the biggest reason why L. A. was to be a successful as we were because I mean there's no words that guy in the net no problem he's got Not a worry in the world is so. Soga doesn't have bad days bad games. Yeah he was on fire that yet you won the cop now does that does that have a ripple effect on the team. Does the team gets caught on the goal. Is that good or do you try to keep that in check? I think it's just that confidence like you just feel like you can just play. And it doesn't matter you'd make your mistakes you know he's got your back like in the playoffs. Twenty twelve playoffs Even fourteen he's just like through the roof. Good like forty saves a night. It didn't matter if we're having a good night. Bad game doesn't matter we know quick. He's playing playing good and doing the pigeon skates when he during the regular season when he had a day off. This guy would stay on for the Pigeon Skate and Billy Rampart goalie coach. It'd be like hey quickey go maybe like no I need. Take the shots for us. 'cause we always have to do it on an empty net and it was like always had so much respect for him just because he does not have to be out there. He played sixty five games a year. And here he is taking shots from the thirteen. Four hundred seventeen man just because he's a nice guy really so we touched on the close knit group in Chicago. I mean it was a different level especially during or excuse me your first run. Where rumor has it. You guys were going out partying like you wanted after every fucking round at the athletic did a story on the pony. The poney the bar we built. It's true hundred percent true. Everything in there is true and how came to be seabrook struck up a friendship with the manager and that was like are spot where it became. The fans knew where we went there but at the time they didn't and we go there regularly. They just close the curtains. The police had stick their nose in there. You guys are good. We'd be grilling grilled cheese sandwiches and tomato soup kitchen like and it was. It wasn't just like party guys. It was wives girlfriends. It was it was the whole group and the single guys and it was a big why we were as good as we were because we are like. It sounds cliche but we really were this tight. Knit group we really were like.

He sends me the sand bagger one so he's getting a little lazy on US amazing product. We tried it when we were actually doing. The first sand bagger when we were in in Texas there wet Very healthy. I don't want I don't want to rip on Beef Jerky but I liked this biltong better and like I said less consequences on the body. Do we house about five boxes of and every time we get together on the road. It's definitely good stuff in. Of course you know helping out a buddy of is everybody know states. Probably the funniest show we ever done so feel like Biltong jerk. What's not jerk is built on. Check it out. It's good stuff since our last episode. We last two parts of the last dance on. Espn the Michael Jordan. Last season documentary. I thought it was pretty good overall. I don't think it was the best documentary ever. It was fun to watch. I probably watch a couple more hours but at the end of the day it was still an MJ production. So they weren't GonNa make him. Look all that bad Horace grant come out and said he called Bullshit on some of it. He said it was some some. What was just fucking fake and outright lies. That's what happens when the guy who's you know the subject of it is making it but overall I give it probably a solid be probably a B plus. What do you got wet? I enjoyed it. Yeah I do agree. That would have been a little different if it was A. You know an unbiased party that that is doing the entire production I bet you. Jordan was the one that went on and said Horace Grant told that reporter everything in one of the one of the episodes. That's probably where he's like. No I didn't Jordan. His so adamant that he imagined trying to convince Michael Jordan that he's stubborn guy. Yeah like he's probably know horse did it. So who knows the thing that I took away? I had two things I had no idea at the end game six the game. They won the last dance. I didn't realize he drove the net. Made it at one point game. They were down three and he steals it from Malone then he goes up court and buries the winner. I what what did insane like minute or however much time ran off the clock there and the other thing Steve Kerr's father being murdered. I had no I. Did you know that all right? Yeah I knew that. Oh Shit yeah that was just like some of the most intense and what he went through and how he didn't miss a game I think at college and just took a crazy story and it was. It was not going to say funny but it was interesting because I think they ask her if he ever talk if Michael and him ever talked about both their fathers being being murdered and he said no so yeah I enjoyed it for sure especially right now with the best documentary of all time. He he had that. Jibed is preemptive statement. You'RE GONNA you're not going to like me after you watch this. I think he was saying that. Just so people would think it was going to be worse or something because it was almost like house cleaning rob housekeeping. It didn't made him look better. I think more so than worse yet but I. I think that that that was none of that. Making him look better was was wasn't true. I mean it's a it reminded everyone about what this guy did. I didn't grant I've never been a basketball fan and really understand the depths of how incredible he was and how Big Day war like the Beatles type Shit and what. He did six and own the finals. You kidding me so yeah. It reminded everyone that he is the goat. What what made him? The goat was how confident he was in a press conference after games even when they lost he was so cool on the whole going back to the horace grant thing. It's funny and I kind of believe Horace Grant because they talked about Michael. Making up the story of that guy. He was playing against just so he could pretend to hate his guts to beat him. Like he's like. I never said that. Michael's mind he did because he'd made it up. So maybe that's what happened with the Horace Grant Situation Fascinating with with how they played out the Utah Jazz Situation. And what was what was like cool was how mean even after games like like. Larry Bird came over when they'd Beaten. Pacers how he walked over Karl Malone when he'd gotten beat he walks onto the boss all the way to the back to shake his hand. Mike just had an aura about him. And when when it came down to it he could just execute it was he and the most fascinating take away from everything and what what. I think made him so. Great is his ability to stay in the moment and they emphasize that towards the end where it was like you know he he lived in the moment most of the time if not all the time and and being that big that would be difficult. It seemed like he didn't get caught up and everything too much given the size of what he was. And now you can understand why some of these athletes I mean. We talked to caloric earlier like imagine being Tom Brady. And now you move to Tampa. And you're on that you're you're you're now on the Marina. Whatever you call it and all these people are coming up invading your privacy. I touch on a few episodes ago. That would be fucking hell. It'd be hell but if you if you love dominating like these guys do like it's totally they're willing and it's worth it to them they don't care because there were like all their doings winning they can live with all the other bullshit because they're just the best at what they do. And I think I think the trash talking is to a different level when you get to the NBA. And I actually reached out to that. Richard Jefferson who was fortunate enough to win Nba Championship with Lebron James. And he's a close friend has he's he said he's familiar with our podcast and he's willing to join us so it'd be nice to pick his brain on his thoughts on it and also you know another guy who's trying to chase. Jordan so think he'll sign my NBA poster sick the sick league poster simply to should we get him in on ripping on the NBA. He probably loves it. Didn't he? Make a million guy. Richard Jefferson made a lot of. Yeah he played for longtime boys. Well before we wrap up did have a couple of notes I wanted to pass along former NHL. Kyle Quincy his young son. Axel was recently diagnosed with brain cancer. Shall we hear spitting chocolate along our best wishes to axel in as he goes and Kicks Kansas? But because we know he's going to do that. So where behind your body and your family as well on Monday Memorial Day. We want folks to enjoy a long weekend here in the states. Take a moment to recognize those who gave off the country as well just a moment to. I like to do that on that day. So you should do that as well and boys any other note. You wanted to add before we send people off for the week. Friday Frankie borelli verse pack onto the box tune in on twitch twitter Youtube facebook and Barstool sports dot com and John Scott will be popping by and we may have another special guest a few things that we didn't we weren't able to touch on but we can glance over his apparently Megan. Fox's dating machine gun Kelly now that was I think. Megan Fox in her prime was probably the celebrity crush. Her in the first transformers was up there for me. So that's why I felt the need to mention it. And did you guys see that clip of people fucking in the subway? Yes why see yes so? Nothing surprises me with thug. In New York City subway treat. I've been walking down the street and seen to people fucking in between cars here in New York City. This is and I was told to keep walking. My computer's dying guys. I love you guys.

That's mogollon leads sale or the boys this find Sunday looking looking a little ragged a few of US producer. Mike G I what's going on brother Ragged I am not. We have a great interview today. With Kevin Hayes Aka the best one so unexcited sided boys. Yeah I was talking about me and busy but next up Ryan Whitney with what you do last night breath Saturday asleep by ten thirty. I'm a really long Friday tonight. A bunch of US got together big group of friends. I think it was ten couples. Couple people had to miss but what a time we had ended up going to bed very late sleeping. I don't know four hours. Maybe it's last night. I was gas pipe that I had to shut her down and I did to get ready for this podcast. I'm excited to be here. It's great to talk to you guys and let's get rippin. Let's get roll. Oh Yeah we can't bounce back like we used to speak unless you're this guy. Paul is Nasty Habits. Have Buddy what do you mean. Look ragged I was in bed was fame time as wit last night. Right I had to fly on on Thursday after my pink Whitney Event Scottsdale by the way that was awesome. Great Chat with some people. You know picture sure picture picture. I love the conversation I had. I talked to One guy for about twenty minutes. He was such an interesting guy. Brought his kid and you start asking me pointer winter sports kid in in in these young 'cause he heard the episode with all the crazy parents who like I know a man. Some of these people are fucking fit for a straight jacket and so you know I was talking to play other sports. Do like bodyweight stuff. Don't even consider chucking weights at the age twelve years old so great great event they then. I got a call last minute to do something in Toronto so I ended up flying red eye after that event in Toronto film something on on a Friday with sports sports net and I met some very interesting people. I can't say more anything more than that and then flew back Saturday morning boys and got a good got a bunch of my chores. Chores done. got a good night's sleep and I am so excited for this episode. We got faulk in Kevin Hayes about angled the best the best one. He's the best one and to have a guy who's you know. I guess of that caliber and willing to come on this podcast and share stories and be open. Because you're you're the Kevin Hayes you're getting on our podcast Kevin Hayes. That's not on the podcast. So nothing changes. There's no filter for hazy. And he's I mean he's talented at ten. He gives a great breakdown when no Passover you of you know what. It's like to have great team chemistry in a locker room in the National Hockey League. Listen you get hockey Mount Rushmore. You Got Gretzky you COMMU- you gotTa War. We don't have any three of them. All the Fourth Guy Kevin Hayes. That's a we got the one down three to go in terms of the greatest to ever do it all for those guys hazy. What the beauty? Couple of other things Biz. Shocker you went out and did a content piece. Can't believe that turned out. Great though can't wait to see it Second thing you mentioned you talk to a guy and his son at the pink. Whitney Event Scottsdale business like the only celebrity of all time he sows shredded. Just smoke the pipe that usually people like all right we. We're GONNA go like wait the conversation's just getting good. And the other thing I had to say was the rink. Shrink great feedback great feedback so we did let Ross aware. Listen Ross you gotta you gotta figure out the emails and I love. We already got a ton ton of emails about listen. This is the scenario. My son or daughter is going through. How do you think I approach it? This is what happened. who was in the right or wrong? And then you'll get the rink shrinks breakdown. So he'll have a little more Blueprint moving forward. A little outline of how we're going to do that maybe once a month we'll talk to him and other than that Forgot the last thing I was going to say but still glad to be here. And we have the best one Kevin Hayes so go ahead are where we starting Real Quick I mentioned all the coaching stuff. That's been going on When are they going to do a deep dive but Brent Soul Point Sean? Every each released statements and videos in the past week. They basically he felt that they their views were sorta misrepresented and they they both amount said. Actually they liked playing for Crawford and despite what you know whatever you did to them that he was good for them in even said that he deserved to be kicked again. I think they just felt like the media was Kinda speaking for the night. They just wanted to kind of get out there a little bit so when are going to do a deep dive on it we just want to let people people know that they had something else to say. After all that shit so we can tweet out we actually did tweet out the state or a Jaguars talking. He's I fucked. That guy didn't kick me hard enough. Yeah Yeah I think he was making very light of it and said hey man. Sometimes I need a fucking kick in the ass because I was being. Ultra ultra big asshole that day. Yeah so again those guys I think they just want to get their own narrative out and I don't think this is putting a bow on the story by any stretch but at least for this week it is so we can move onto some fun stuff and Friday night in Arizona. I'm sorry in Pittsburgh Arizona on a Coyote Phil Kessel returned back to Pittsburgh for the first time since getting traded boys that was an incredible Brownsville. Applies he got. They were sharing. I think a minute into the play when they started back back. And when you get forty five point forty nine. Playoff Games went to cups. That's the kind of reception you get. It couldn't be. You just said it perfectly you show up when the Games are at the big the the most important and you play like that in the playoffs and you raise the cup twice. You're a hero forever in Pittsburgh which he should be. What a run he had? I wasn't surprised. Is it all What a sports town to? We've set at a bunch of times underrated Sports City and I think that they respect somebody that when the when the chips are on the line that were when when when when you know when it really matters you come through in that city year God so Phil Kessel never pay for a beer again in that city or maybe people fool maybe some bookies let him skip out on money might ogm. I'm just I'm trying to think of stuff. He enjoys doing. Not giving room or anything but congrats to him great feedback great and soapies soapies betting on hockey. That clown already talked about him. I forgot the NFL by the way. Did you guys see that tweet. I sent out a James Harden. Holy Shit Biz. If you haven't seen the talk about Phil Kessler. We're going right into hardware so I go. We go to heart and afterwards go. Well I mean you said a blue collar town Pittsburgh. I mean a lot of these people's memories rely on those sports teams and they they got it done in the NFL. Kind of when we're around there it was it was. I would say more of a football town at that time and now I think it's hockey town and those guys I mean Kesselman. It talked about a guy who doesn't want the praise either like during the video like you could tell like you know rounds his shoulders kind of thing looking a little bit and like smiling but like he just he just loves the game and wants to win. He doesn't the need the praise. But you know very loved in that Locker Room. Remember there. was that rumor that him and Malkin work get along member at the start of season that AH basically the reason. He got moves because their relationship. While I mean I I'd say that we can put that rumor to rest. Considering they got the heading nockles. Going on center raced middle of the game we're going to go to the Tummy. Stick chart not quite. They've done enough together. We're we're not exactly can't God to have done that. No no they. They could have literally reverse sixty nine on the ice and I I would have been okay with that considering what they've been through together so and then Malcolm even through instagram post as as well so buddy guy an Ra. Do you have anything to say about. I want to ask reverse sixty nine Biz. All I was saying I'm like I I met as if you're doing it with a girl and you and you do it and then she's the one standing up and holding you know okay. This viewing viewing yeah. You know. I've I've done that like someone you've never seen worn all that was in nineteen you just dot com. Where the fucking woman is? It's the ones now that's popular popular because the young kids. So they're like they look like they're sixteen but they're actually nineteen. They can sign the waiver in order to run their own life but like they'll have like a girl who's he's like a little bit jacked and she'll just throw throw the kid around like any way we could probably move on the I know Kesselman. He's he's a he's a doozy. I really hope we get him on the show this time. All these teammates talk so much about him but We like to see a little his personality. So if he's listening to the city of Pittsburgh if both teams are at at the highest level is a football town. Sure all time. I'M GONNA go. I wonder what we'll hear back if they're both the best in the league. NHL NFL. It's it's a football wall town yet right now. Obviously the success level. The penguins has probably changed. Well I was factoring in the fact that Rothlisberger probably has what two years Max if even comes back. Yeah and then. If they don't have a quarterback they're going to be a five hundred team for you know for the next five six years hockey down hockey town. Now we gotta go back to another sport. Art James Harden thing. I didn't watch that video you sent to the group shot. Okay so this is what happens. He goes up for a rebound or whatever it is and he literally gets like just the back of a guy's hand just grazes cheek and so what happened was the first clip before they show the replay which I- smoothly was able to rewind with my finger on the bar like I was doing it like it was like a professional job so I I really show you what happened to him before the show them walking off the court will after he went ballistic realistic and like grabbed his face. Oh baby after you get this little back into his cheek. He ended up falling and hitting his head. Okay so that's I think why he left the game and that's what people like. You're not even showing when he hit his head. No I didn't need to idiots. I'm showing the reaction he does when he throws his hand face in his hands that he will because he did that is why he hit his head idiot so I hope he doesn't have a concussion. Nobody roots concussion. Devon me gets. NBA Guys Never WanNa see a head injury. But if you're going to actually tell me that you're not showing why he left the game showing the complete Farris reaction reaction to getting a pinkie off your cheek. So I'll say after watching this video now all you You went to town on them. Good is that all you wind with my. ooh You did that Ios your little remix yes. They'll derg bells. All the damage that occurred was was basically done by himself. But also overreacted acted to the cheek. And maybe he got banged up in the head because of it but he did play last night because I think they played against the sense. So he's back. He an Oscar occur. He was able to come back for a fucking warrior. Brought a warrior occurred on speaking best supporting actor. Nominations Thursday night and Carolina. Joe Thornton and Pete Him Razzak had a bit of a skirmish Morozov Swastika. Joe Pretty High joke pop them in the face wasn't too hard Maroshek. Went Down like the titanic and his teammates got so much of a kick out of it. They actually spray paint that a chuck right on the ice the next day to let you know that the fucking dog it a little too busy. I'll fucking funny. Was that why I guess guess. We can't be ragging on basketball hockey to write all he they don't count J so I will say if it. Let's say that was Tom. Wilson did that. We may be talking games here You might be talking Game League throw him out of the League. Big Joel Jumbo Joe gets a pass and the chop yeah. It was a nasty chop. If Hey of goalies WANNA play that game. They deserve a little shimmy shake once in a while allow catch them right off the job. Hey this is a big boy game here outside the crease you WANNA play. Let's fuck enrolled. Let's talk and go toothpick in the face g-go but Jumbo jaw. Yeah have none of that fucking bullshit slash gives them a nice little little stiff arm and it was nice that they all laugh about it it afterward. So there's probably that probably gives the Carolina fans like okay. I guess we can make fun of ourselves once in a while. If if you're gonNA slash someone or try to slash somebody and then go up to them in a form of kind of stepping to them. You have to know one thousand housing percent you get punched in the face. It doesn't matter what position you play. You tried to slash one first and then you come out and he was just like little throw punch. Praying and reaction. Action was incredible. I mean you could tell right away like it. Looked like he actually got shot from someone in the stands sniper style shooting but yeah yeah it's pretty funny jumbos like nope forty two years old or over all these. I'll do whatever I want to. And the fact that like the the melee that that ensued after I love that it was old school all of a sudden you just hand bodies kind of flying around so I happened to catch it live to somehow. Maybe I was watching. NHL Network where they just go around. But it's been in a couple of minutes after it happened but you knew the next day somehow. His teammates would screw with them and the way they did it so everyone else could see spray paint. That you said are with perfect all right. Oh you know what I really respect about Joe Thornton now that you know he's not logging the same minutes as he used to not really producing offensively and he's always in the bottom six role but he's also also adapting the chippiness as well. I mean he was just mouthing off with Tom Wilson the other day he doesn't give Fox. You always kind of been means you. Would you agree now that he's not playing as much. He has more energy in order to handle that probably shit. I think what you said is he's embracing at each point four fine. I'm GONNA I just start being more of a rat where getting one hundred twenty points. What does he even have time for that exactly? But I respect that about knowing that he doesn't think he's exempt playing that side side of the role because of what he's done in the past. So that just tells you how big of a legend He is and Carolina Hurricanes fans. I know some of you might be shaking your head and maybe you're punching the emblem on your steering wheel and you're mad because we're giving joke ordinance. Pass on this one he gets fucking pass whole God. Yeah so I think the fact the his own morass zone teammates spray painted chuck outlet on the ICE. Pretty much speaks to that. Everybody was kind of on Asthma Razek about that or do you think he's being grumpy Gills. I hadn't seen seen a quote on a yet but I mean you got to laugh at that fucking point when your boys dog. And you're like that I mean that that's I sometimes you're mad fucking dive and these these poopie pants about it. Who knows the Sacramento Kings? GM was watching the clip. He's all connect guy dribble verbal shit boys and after that little dustup. Sure I'm Razek wants to freshen up a little. And hopefully he's using or as an APP skin-care because skin and body care is strong enough a hockey sweat and has you covered if you have a few too many holiday. Toasts check out their caffeine. Infused wakeup stick as well swiped under the is to reduce the the under eye bags and darkness. Does the trick definitely. WanNa check out or ALP she or you don't like it.

Use the Code Red to get fifteen percent off and you'll be looking good smelling freshest daisy like the man over there. I smell like yeah herb. Let's get back to say. And we all look raggedy and he was the only one that looks looks raggedy who tried to bring us all down because he knew he was looking at and we're buzzing right now are I'll. I'll go down to ship at play the violin until it goes down buddy and I'll be jumping open on that raft. I'll get me bree in the baby right on the raft or out of there. Hey Garelli what did you say you never hop in mid Combo I said is I think you look absolutely fantastic right now. You're glowing right now. Well that's because of all the facial products I mean. You Look Young as hell all you. People Chirping Me Hopped on the Avery Bandwagon. I and I don't give a shit I'm GONNA look like I'm forty when I'm sixty and I'm still crushing young. You think is is as hard as because his body Grenell phys gained thirty. He's terrible I think. More about that. Your big jacked. I think. It's all his confidence I think he's going to be high no matter what he does know. He's so he's so confident with any along he's just think but then all of a sudden she's like hey. I heard that episode in November of two thousand seventeen. Weren't that great each like what No. No that's the only the premier now those rude I apologize. Oh no dude. I don't Fuck my little high. Didn't even kind of catch on what you guys are saying. And what you just mentioned writer Christmas Guy The other day he's got some salad going on the I like it. I said all yellow. Let's hope he gets good hair. My hair socks socks tennis. You'RE GONNA get those those plugs in the front. I might actually looking. I went and saw the guy might do it. I might try to thicken coming up in the front where it's really thin I duNno. It's like a get stitches in your head and Shit I don't know about it yet. I haven't decided but I've seen some pictures exists where I'm like dude. I'm a balding loser. I think I think I might get Not like a nose job and I might get my nose done soon. I had done a couple of times. I don't think so I used to Jordan. Everybody knows you're GonNa fix you. Teeth duties acknowledged that too. I am like I have the gap my teeth so I think you kind of have to have that snowed. It's a once you lose that snow. Just the guy with the Halloween Tattoo on your forearms still got my foreskin Horsley. We got really off the. Yeah I just the bet Boy Saturday night man. We had a clash of two of the NHL Vessel Fata season. Colorado Ottawa's visit in Boston and I made sure it ahead to see this game. I run up the bees. They hooked me up as usual at the credential and do that. Avalanche team is fucking unbelievable that third period they were playing with like playoff intensity dive in front of every shot blocking everything getting sticks and lanes and I met up with Mackinnon. I want to say hello to him as a chick walk out of here. You right down and say hi Dr. Yeah yeah you gotTa tell what happened with you and the captain to be a pretty cool moment for you all right. Yeah I ain't GonNa Ali'i Biswas an all at us before you have missile. We hung out with McKenna for a few days. I'll go around. He's in in Boston. I went out and say what's up to July was waiting in the hallway. And there's no one there yeah just me. Standing there and Linda Scott comes walking down the hall of what a fucking man rocket. He is boy glasses on a head. Who from the night suit and we kind of make eye contact and he stops? She's like like a faulk on it here. I sweet like in Little Bro. Sniping the hallway ship my pants but I was like arrays asking for the security camera footage. Did you guys get that. I all Shit I was like. Hey what's up. So I I was like we gotta get you on the show sometimes anti absolutely and we were shooting the breeze about the show for a few minutes. I I was like I was kind of stash truck versus just the fact like I said he snapped me. And then I nee come out a few minutes after we I I say you're GONNA WANNA make sure I said hello and we walked to the bus together shooting the breeze a little ritual and it was actually funny when Mia McKenna walking. Someone of the. I'm like Wolfgang Leans over like I thought he was going to grab McKenzie. He reached over and shook my hand. Not Mckinnon's you fucking crushing that. That ain't have no way. Yeah now you better get that fucking security footage for that second comment Alemi. Someone came up and and pigeon toss McCain in an went into the handshake for our nate. was there because we laughed faces off after it was like you know kind of like. Yeah this this is going on now so guys like Ra you still owe. Oh me too. All brands from the waiter of nine you know if anything fucking watch since I got this one. Ra they gave him his left. Shoe was definitely twenty four K.. One of my speaking of that quickly about the avalanche inch what a cool thing to read and I think you saw it or you heard it when you hurt us interview McKinnon about how down to Earth Guy He is and how much he idolizes. This crosby and I bring this up because crosby took less money and you saw the quotes from McKinnon. This week it was all about I will take. I took less money now and people talk about that. I'm the biggest bargain in the NHL. Shell kind of along with posture. Knock but I'll take less money again because all I WANNA do is win with this group and you mentioned that group alright. They went down one. Nothing in that game didn't matter one bit I mean date they Mo- mccaren the back end with a bunch of other guys. The pace they play with the depth they have Qadri was a shoot. That was a great trade for them. I'm saying for both both teams because Barry's look awesome since The coaching change in Toronto. But Still Qadri just added a little depth offensively being a rat being over being able to shut down the top guys. They are as deep of a team as you look And and I just. I was so impressed to see McCain and say that because it's not easy people people often ask why. Why doesn't everyone take the deal if they really WANNA win? Well you get some pressure from around the league and the PA because more more guys that take deals the worse it is for the entire players association. That's just kinda how it works. I mean for years Ray Bork was kind of so underpaid and you look back to the times when all oh my God few is making more everyone else would have made more so. It's not easy to be an underpaid guy and I don't think McKinnon Make six and a half again or whatever he's making now but he won't look look to break the team back with a huge deal and that does matter. That's a good point. You dismayed about guys being a little frustrated when guys take team friendly friendly deals and that's a thing that exists. Certain guys are like call US fucking Guy Luke. I tied buddies of mine. Be pissed and I'm like man like if they enjoy the environment they're in and that's what they have to take in order to stay there but you can't put a price on that now. That's another point as far as negotiations are concerned where you know GM's homes are using comparables from other guys where it's it's pretty tough as a player in an agent to go to the team and say. Yeah well I mean that guy gets the fucking win and be around competent people wait to have you seen his team. Look at us. What are you talking? That's not a cop okay. That Guy's having fun fund. I'm in hell out of here. Satan Lady Candy we are so yeah no that was an interesting point and it kind of I kind of forgot what the original comment was all McKinnon. Sorry Foam McKinnon saying that. Now if you're you're you're Colorado Avalanche Fan and I would imagine that that's the reason you wearing that hat today because you're you're an hour an adopted fan Ra Ra's wearing a call a hat for every NHL Bruins Fan. It's insanity that's Colorado rockies had actually a ebbing you didn't they wear that Jersey They they were the state flag that that see what amount that's the car. So that's why they have a version Joie but this is the rockies bef- right before they left I thought that was you're you're kind of Nine relation between you planned Tommy Sticks with the avalanche team in the garden by the way so just stab team in the back but if you're a Colorado Avalanche Fan right now you're here in the second best player in the world I think well I guess dry seidel top five. Let's put McKenna top-five. No questions asked I would put a number two behind mcdavid saying he's going to take a team team friendly deal all my Falklands. Everyone else going to do. Oh man you know what you just got it speaking of the Bruins. You just got yourself off another Boston. Fuck and Bruins Organization. Everybody's buying we're all going to win and have a good time. We're all going to still make a lot of fucking money and yeah you might have five for ten million less at the end of your your career in the long run but we're going to be led Jin's well if you look right now I would Ryan Ryan Whitney's top four in the NHL or we'll go to east to West Boston Washington Saint Louis Colorado. None of them. I mean Boston and Colorado auto similar none of them make a ton of money Washington obviously as Ovechkin. There's some differences with that team but Saint Louis O'Reilly we think seven and a half cap it. I mean nothing's the things that crazy now edmonds had fans will Edmonton should be up there. Yeah they have they have two huge deals there. But it's still shows if you're lucky enough to be a fan of a team or the GM of a team at dawn. Sweeney Joe Sakic where you're looking around and saying these guys aren't trying to break the bank then we one hundred percent have leg up on other teams. It's it's a fact aside from Ovechkin in Washington because I think he's making ten and a half which I would still consider that a deal for what he does an all over the one guy mcdavid will never get shirt for making as much as he can. It's different quite like dude. You deserve that. Get Look at the last ten years aside from Washington and Ovechkin a team won it with a guy making over like eight and a half million. You go if you guys. If you got some guys on those mega-deals it's just it's hard man because now you can spend less on others and there's just not enough enough. There's not enough money to go. Get the guys like the Qadri and the and the sandpaper guys that are GonNa get the job done and and play beyond their worth so colorado auto is going to be in good shape and I i. I mentioned Boston. WHO's another team? Who every year? They're good now because they have everyone exceeding what they're making contract wise. I think you could definitely see the influence that said has on native. Of course it said on the podcast you know this summer. Take unless doesn't work unless everybody does it and you know MacKinnon said we have guys. That wouldn't be here or otherwise. You guys like him didn't take less and he said on my next deal. I'll take less again because I want to win with this group like what you said you know. You GotTa think I'd sit has some sort of influenced errors. Yeah I'm sorry. I sound like such a player Stan Stan because I was one but listen take as much as you can earn. I'm not gonNA judge you. What in the end? It's it's also I'm in such agreement. Where like dude what? How much money can you spend? So you make eighty nine million over one hundred seven million like you're flying private everywhere living wherever you want doesn't matter so I understand completely I wanNA win. I enjoy this place. I'm not going to absolutely totally crushed this team. I think we've we've set up before a if you're a player and you're GonNa Gouge. A little bit is soon as you're not playing good. I could understand why there's going to be more backlash if you want benefit of the doubt as a player and you're gonNA make a ton of money it's in your best interest to be like I'm GonNa take a little bit less. We're GONNA go a long term and we're going to get some shit down there then all of a sudden the fans are like fuck. Yeah guys with us is our body you know and then and and then I'd be Christ over over eight years Ra if you're getting Tan as opposed to eleven. I mean after the taxes and all that I mean that four I mean you're you're a great grandkid might got. You're not gonNA spend it so I can understand from a fan perspective. Why maybe some you get frustrated and you're a little bit harder on certain certain guys who don't take team friendly deals Also a couple of notes on on Colorado Goaltender Phil grew. He was slogan up after a save. Last night they ended up having to take take him out again. But I'll tell you that. His backup kid by Pavel Pavel. Franco's Merle's told us about him in the Cage Gel. He's too old to be eligible for the call to this yet but nine gamespot nine stops this year seven two two two four nine three one save percentage. This kid's been lights out. There's been absolutely no drop off from him but what's funny is After they brought him in the game I went down to visit a couple of a couple of the town. He's our at the game in one of the dudes that was hanging out. He got a call. He's a he was the bug he was legitimately understands fucking watching the game and then he got the fucking call to come down in case. You Know God forbid frank who's got hurt he would have had to go from the stands to the fucking game which always phase do do they send him down to the locker room or a room near law criminally gets dressed Kinda you. He goes down to the room. I don't know how fully dressed God they said the room. I bet not. I think they have like a like an anti-american type thing where you're not sitting with the big boys but you can be somewhat close as you get your gear on but it it just funny like we've talked about a bunch of the show. How close it is to just have some some Randall in an NHL game and the funniest part to me is that he could play for either team like if the same situation obviously Boston's maybe they probably had someone else there but he can fucking ended up shooting up for either team? That's just such a wild thing Also to Nudist Donskoy. He got hurt. He didn't return to the game in another guy. Kill Macau Guy. We talked about a ton of the show. He took a hit from my Sean. He didn't return the game after. Couldn't really tell if it was a memoir. Hopefully it wasn't his head but he had to leave the game. Hopefully he's he's going to be fine because he's he's a great player to watch Senior boy rudy. Walk via the background. He's been working pinup for a while. There what's Rudy. What's going on subways? Are you doing good. How's the how's the search field going? It's good man now. I got the hinge profile setup. Thanks to you guys But basically only question I have is now. I've got the setup I got the profile and and I'm doing my screen is like smoldering got the unlimited thing so I'm just like my fingers like Red Hot because I'm scrolling so much so that's how it works is is because you have that preferred profile. Oh that more girls were able to able to message in see your profile you can do unlimited unlimited likes. There's no cap on how many likes you can give so. That's sort of the so so you either do not do that. Then why no but now you. Now he's got a weed through the bullshit. Yeah but what an issue to weed through and I don't want to hang out with let league. It's better than not having anything. Yeah it is. That's a great point grey point but so basically the help I need is I just need help with like you know some icebreakers because like if you get all this information and I feel like you know like that Seem Zach. Alpha Nakisa the hangover. We've got Kim quesions like flying by his head. I'm sitting on my phone on my on the icebreakers tough and I don't really know know what to do on the ice because I need a couple tips on like you know how because once I'm in the game or once you're there it's easy but getting started is the hardest part so many of these girls followed your message. Judge you because they heard you on this. I'd say about fifty percent of the girls that reached our like. Oh I'd like they thought it was funny like caulking so take the ones who didn't and didn't do it because of that and they don't exist anymore okay because this is all about content so you've got to find one who's who's going to be willing to come down and break down the date and because we need to find out if you're a fucking gentleman or if you're just a fucking scumbag asshole who's pretending that you're trying to find love which I know this is this. Is that well every day. He's saying what does he say to begin with. I'm saying I don't know how you can do this over tax. It weighs you to do in person but if you say listen I need your opinion on something. A close friend of mine was Just got in touch with by a girl that he dated in high school. It was like ten years ago. And she asked him to go on the Jerry Springer show and he's he doesn't know what to do. What do you think you should do? Should he go. Because maybe she's beautiful now Prettier or maybe she's pregnant. I don't know what to tell them. What do you think you should? At least you'll get an answer. Ivory can start talking. I like that. That's something I did not expect but I I'm down for anything is like busy. I'm this is a growth experience so if anyone's trying to help me out and help me grow. I'm down for it. So Jerry Jerry Springer. I didn't expect that but I'll tell you I mean personally I would say how's your blowjob twice. Okay Cross that. That might be coming in a little hot a little fullwood once again. This is for love so I mean I'm going down a different path here that you never know. This is what I would ask. How much water you drink a day because you gotta make sure they're fucking Ph levels are fucking good? I know what happens ends up. They aren't that smells. Think up your hotel room heat. The Annals GonNa come by twenty four hours later and it's still going to be there so that that does it for the hinge date or hinge enj- APP thing. Good luck how. What's what's your job? Now you gotta go on three dates in the next week before next thing I think. That's fair yeah I think I can. I can try to get three three out. Especially if I have Jerry Springer and then lead with water I mean. That's two in the bag right there. Okay do do me this favor though is odd odd. Recommend that you split the TAB each meal just to see maybe their reaction at there. Okay going fifty fifty. I think that's important moving forward. Keep therapy bag do that or just equality down for equality so anyway. Good luck out there rudy. It's not an easy game. So good luck about their buddy. My my buddy system was on spring time. She got me on it too. Here's my surprised face uh-huh I'm actually surprised you haven't been on it. No it's still like jeopardy. He was as close as you could ever get on. You are not the father. It is Jerry Springer still going. I don't think so. I don't think he I don't know. I never go go on recently all did that. They did that skit with him. I think that was that was like a night thing. Oh no they have they have all booze and shit when you get to the show. They have they've they want people to get shit faced before they go they come on so okay. What's crazy is these people? That's legit right. I mean some of it is is fabricated or is that legit. My my buddy system was it wasn't fake. It was a real life situation him in her and some other girl like fighting over some guy in the other girl had a picture of the ultrasound. My buddy sister ripped the picture. The ultrasound thinner fucking face and then all hell broke loose cannon chat chuck. What exactly are they being compensated to go on national television flight and they get hotel rooms and they give them a bunch of booze and get loaded before the show but these are real and you can find them in Florida you can find him a bunch of states you can go? Yeah you gonNA find them in Saugus but either way. I don't think any of its made up. That is fucking crazy that they've been able to do it that long. That's how many people out there just like. That walked doubt lot of white trash in America unless apply and then she was my partner in his wedding like three months. Viking late a to put put a cherry on top of that Sunday Biz. I'd I'd love to do a bit and checklists Jerry Springer Collab- who would who would the beef be complementing each other the socks that would be one hundred pounds. I'd still love you. We will you be my father Biz. I'd be I'd be like guy in dodge ball with the mustache when he gets really fat after he fucking has meltdown. What's what's the guy in dodgeball light white goodman goodman I couch Globo? Gm you're better than me. I right once again. Way off the rails. Let's bring it back to the pucks on. La was back in Calgary Saturday night. But before that drew doughty was talking to the Edmonton media about Calgary and he said he likes Edmonton over. Calgary said Calgary's different. I don't care to talk to the media or be there at all to be honest but I do enjoy winning there for sure Pretty pretty funny stuff. This ongoing saga with Dowdy in Calgary Biz. I said it last time but I'm still like online reading twitter and like of course I like going to watch that clip. 'cause doughty's stirring the pot. He's feast feeding right into it. And we've still got the hot takes from Calgary fans that you're living rent-free free Andrew doughty's head like Fox. What are you talking about here? The game winner last time he was there. What do you have last game? Was it a goal and two assists a goal ending ending assist last last one when when when they said he was living rent-free two Stanley Cups. More than your entire organization okay. Now they're going through a bit of a downtrend fucking Stanley Cups and sometimes you have to sacrifice assets for that and then and then once again he says that before this game and then all them and again hotcakes rent-free talking about and then he fucking another going and assist on your team following that so next time he says it saying Saint. Send the same fucking tweet. You dummy I think or so fucking stupid. Well they're just seeing like a hall of fame player get rattled more than he usually usually does so they talk about it right. I mean like it's total kind of make a story out of nothing whereas he's lighting up. It's not affecting his play guy. This Guy Legend in the NHL. And it's actually it is affecting. It's better it's better. That's why he's doing it so he's like. I'm going to CHIRP him every time I'm going to elevate my play when I go in there and then some all of these knuckleheads are like always washed up. But he's fucking twenty points in thirty Games defenseman he fucking plays one think what and they stink pink. So Oh God some of these fucking idiots online and bozos in In the same game eland Lucia good as two hundred th career goals so. He's one of five active players with two hundred goals and at least eleven hundred penalty minutes join in Thornton Perry bacchus and Chara go Biz. And he's he's playing better he. He started to put up some points. He's got two goals and five assists yeses at James Neal. No Okay and I know early on that was of course the story line when they were struggling. Like all Lucia Lucia member member after they were going through a tough stretch there and they were going to be playing like weaker competition they. They'd they've been going on a bit of a roll here and they've been winning those games. I remember in the gambling corner. I said start hammering. Not Calgary I mean if they're gonna they gotta take advantage of those types of teams the the whole team starting to play a little better. I mean I don't know if you guys saw that fucking feed that Gujral gave Monaghan the other night. That was faulk in filthy. Did you see how lateral Gujral got in the in the neutral zone. He like he was going to get cut off. And then all of a sudden you just like right back the other way and the the amount of space that he covered for a guy that small and how lateral he went so fast in order to like another lane. That's Johnny Gujral. He starting to who if there if that tops six starts cooking baby lookout you got another. You've got another Colorado on your hands man. 'cause they the whole team was struggling. They weren't playing playing good hockey now. They're starting to roll. And and I tell you what I know. Everyone's talking about James Neal having success looked but I think he's rounding out that autumn sex nicely. I see another guy who got called up. I really like his game and I know a lot of people don't like him because of his pass as Rinaldo already he fucking he can move. He's he's an incredible skater. He's he's GonNa Kizzie really all my God. He's an incredible walk. He's he buzzes around out there he he had another hit against La. That I don't want to say it was questionable. I think he he kept his shoulder down. He had to answer the Bell Against Clifton. Cuffed was fighting him out there when they were Shalva. fucking ice the ice girls on the ice and these guys trying to throw hands so that might have been a first time for that but I think he's a little spark plug that adds that element women of of other teams defensemen hearing footsteps. You Know Oh kamikaze style. Where they're going to start? Making some more plays are missing. Samore passes back there. They're going to turn it over and he adds to that for check on the bottom six Lions so are the bottom two lines. Excuse me so I I. I like Calgary moving forward here. I think they've worked out the kinks and and yeah I kind of rambled on quite a bit there. He certainly brings an element. That Neil doesn't bring in like the physicality physicality in fucking Berry and people it's up. Almost congrats two hundred goals. I know we were talking about Lucia. Yeah Dot Com deserted some credit lately absolutely Louis another team. We wanted to mention Minnesota. I we know they did lose Saturday night in Raleigh. But they had an eleven game point streak before that And They Lost Miki Koivu and jared's burgeoned those obviously two huge holes in Atlanta figure the streak had end at some point plus also men. They had to play twenty of their first thirty on the road. And as mad. Doumba says that's ridiculous. I mean that's obviously buildings to accommodate other stuff have twenty first thirty on the road. That's fucking that's a tough thing to half the battle Seven one and two and they'll ask ten. It's put Minnesota Right back into the playoff mix where you know they they kinda look dead and buried a About a month ago with John. Take on the Minnesota wild will. They had a horrendous streak. I WANNA say it's like the second time ever that it's happened. Where twenty the first thirty is is on the road they come home? I think they got a three game homestand and they go right back on the road it is true right. It's not many teams in league can withstand losing two of your best players and I think that one's an upper body injury. He wants a lower body injury. They both look a couple of weeks. I think that they said spurgeon was the upper body and rumor. Has it Michael Russo. The athletic reporter for Minnesota said it's a broken hand. That's tough right spurgeon. I've been blown that kid since we start. Ra I've I've been talking about here. Ever since before I was on the podcast. Absolutely yeah. He's he's as good as advertising. Signed a huge deal because of that because what sought. Yeah thank you. You're welcome. What what I think hurts the not what I think what I know? Is that the start this is. What's so frustrating? You know. Injuries come throughout the year. Will you have such a bad start that then you finally going to run and you get things going you lose to these top guys and you you just hope to go kind of five hundred while as long as the rope but when you have such a bad start it's like it makes it so difficult you have no wiggle room. After what they went through at the beginning but bill the guarantee talked about. How big McCoy Ben and how upset he was to get injured. He'll still get honored for his thousandth game play at home at their next home game. I don't know if more Sunday Monday or Tuesday. Holy Fuck talk about a big range days. It's coming up and he's going to get on it but he won't be at the plaster that kind of that's a pretty pretty shitty feeling as a guy who is getting honored in front of all these people who spent his entire tire career there and he doesn't get to go out and perform after but the team looks good as much as we should on them. They've really kind of figured out what takes to be successful like the Joel Eriksson. AC will all of a sudden. He's founders role. He's figured out what's going on. He's probably not going to be an elite score scoring offensive player as they thought when he was drafted but he's pissing people off the guy's a pain in the ass to play against people hate playing against them. Ryan auto has been out of the lineup. A little a bit. He goes back and he's able to perform Aparicio's looked really good. And then you know Luke Kuhn this kid's a young American guy. We talked about him at world. Juniors are a years ago oh he hasn't become the the top two. I'm player yet but get him on that third line with Ericsson Aqui can be a pain in the ass to while also having offense and I guess right now. They're looking a lot better. We said some nasty shit about the wild. They are looking better. I never think they'll win the COP. I think it'll be great if they get in the playoffs but it is good to see a team. We dog really start to pick it up and play better while we didn't think they were going to be good because of their agent and and you know guys were underachieving little bit based on their contracts. I thought we were fair. We he said that you know. That's an older group will. Maybe they'll play with a chip on their shoulder because everyone's doubting him. I didn't factor in last night's game because I took some notes but one thing that's helped them since DUB EK spinout is their offense has been good. They've had three or more goals in in in eight of those ten games or they went undefeated regulation Shen. Okay and I know. They lost who they lose to on on Saturday Carolina arline. They got they got smoked. Yeah they got smoked but they beat some fucking good teams during that stretch man. They beat the avalanche. They beat Florida Tampa and Dallas. And I think that because that leadership group and the older guys kind of helped him get through that whereas if it would have been a younger group maybe they would have stumbled and remember all that Shit happened with Boudreau and soccer ever since then they did a lot better than of course the GM change in and Billy Garin comment but they got some good things going right now my one unconcern for them and it could be a positive is. They're not getting a ton of contribution from the young guys were not significant contributions. They're not getting offensive offensive contributions. It's other stuff where but it's not. Yeah you're not getting goals right but they're not having any of these young guys popoff where. Hey maybe maybe they needed this this small window at the start of the season or to find their game and now they're going to amp it up from here and with the contributions if they can stay consistent from the older guys hey they might fall. It can be a playoff team that I know it's crazy. I know it's crazy. Talk but who knows but man their top six guys other than Zucker are over the age and scoring. Excuse me are over the age thirty and above so suckers twenty-seven all the other guys are fucking thirty thirty four thirty five the only other guy Who's WHO's WHO's younger and who can contribute a little bit offensively at Fiala? Now I don't know. Is that guy going to take the next step. Is that guy going to get stuck in that. You know forty forty forty five point window where it's like okay. We'll like is your top six guy. Is he a third liner for life. What have we got here? So DENARDO DENARDO hasn't hasn't had type of success. He had when he moved over last year in that trade. Like there's another guy. I'm sure they're hoping can start. You know elevating his game offensively. I mean I think he's only I think he's under ten points this year. I write the eyelid seed. He's got yet Four Goals Three assists in twenty seventy. He's been in and out out of the lineup and then he's been in the fourth line. He went up to the second line and look good but the they basically yeah they need more out of the young guys he's included in that. And lastly we know how along dub dub neck's out I do not I do not off the top of my head. No but that that kid the cock and he's only played two games but he might the future of goaltender for this team they took them what fourth-round back and fourteen again. It's only two games but He's looking very impressive in the twos plates there you go. So if they're able to continue continue this their offense and maintain it. I mentioned that three goals or more an eight of their last ten. That was before that loss to to Carolina on numbers wise. But if they can cirque goaltending man then I think they're okay. They're competent team. Yeah Week to week and I you know they've been doing it by committee you know. They don't have like a MacKinnon tactic. Carry them so they they've done the scorn by committee in Like I said they're back in the mix right now own show notes zoo got a great great reception in New York and he also has been on fire lately I think he scored three or four straight right around there so you knew he'd pick it up after a slow start but it was cool to see the Rangers Fan Really.

Oh Yeah my buddy. Sent me this. I was looking looking over over the facts so I I would assume that. It's the only professional sports team to not lose in regulation but this is going to make any any other people outside of Boston. Nuke the Bruins are also the first professional local team to lose at home since the Red Sox lost a Baltimore Orioles on September twenty eight. What's the Patriots are five and on home this season and the Celtics improved to nine and on Friday? All why I live right so so the people of the Boston haven't gone to a game in a two and a half months since a loss with the regular regulation loss which I mean. That's law matters. If you've got you know listen you gotTa leave your happy in home on. Yeah it's pretty pretty impressive like in Boston. Still dragging nuts across the rest of the content. When it comes to sports you said something there with reminded me of something I wanted to talk about? Do you guys agree. That Layton Games James now in the NHL. If it's tied moats most teams play pretty passive. Where the last five to ten minutes can be you know unentertaining the road teams? I completely disagree. I think that they should try it for a year. Where wins and regulations count as three points? Oh I couldn't agree more with that. I've said it three to one soccer style. It's enough enough is enough maker regulation when more valuable. Yeah and and that's because like I I just think the entertainment aspect. Another thing that we talked about it was was going long or three as opposed to shoot out. I'm GonNa stay by my word. I liked. Try them do at one season where it's the three to one. As far as points or spread out of course it would be three deregulation win to furnish overtime or shootout win One point if you go to pass regulation elation the seven or eight minutes of three on three hockey the only problem being that of course the best players are on the ice. They're playing more the season long. You're you're talking injury prevention so the PHP would have to agree to it but but the NHLPA yeah all a PHP. Oh sorry my bad. That's what happens when you play three year in the fucking jungle the assure career anyway but I just like to see them. Try it because it would make Games down the stretch more entertaining especially later in the season where like if teams have to catch up. It's like we're we gotta go forward here. We're we're pressuring. There's GonNa be more offense less boring hockey you all right I was actually going to say the devil's Before that Biz the devils come and said Jack Hughes will not be playing in the World Juniors after Christmas Smith's I guess the what's his name. Ken Campbell the Hockey News. He basically roller call saying he should play in the juniors and kind of caused enough of a Kerfluffle with the devils felt the need to come out and say that he wasn't playing head coach. Al Ala Owain or is it. Does it Alina Allen Bits. All Elaine Nasty. Yeah Yeah He Komo and said quote it was shut down right away. We have no intention of sending him there. He's on the team. He's a big part of this team. So it's not something where we want to lose him for three weeks. Yeah he's not going and like I said. It seemed to be a response to a common hockey news but Jack us isn't going anywhere. It's up as Jack Service. Oh I was just going to say quickly set. I didn't read the article. I don't know how critical was now if if we're talking about him going to world juniors. I wouldn't think it'd be a bad thing just for the simple fact that he's been in a losing environment to start out as early. NHL Career and maybe go back to get a little bit of confidence. Maybe like you know you know touch. Watch the puck in more situations in and you know in in remember what it's like to winning environment wouldn't be a bad thing but as you're saying if they're if they're knee him him and he's fucking one of their better players he's carrying play then yeah. Of course you're not going to send it back to the world. Juniors Jack Hughes is on pace for like fortyish points it's after a horrific start and looks like You know my neighborhood playing street hockey every day. He has zero business playing in the world. Juniors that is beyond he he's done enough. I've seen enough where no way. He is playing on our first power. Play that is not going back to the World Juniors. I'm not saying it would really hurt. Heard him because you are right to be winning. Probably a lot of Fani light it up he ended he is an NHL player. That's that's why we've moved. We've moved past. I won't don't even consider hammering anyone who said he's not going to say I wouldn't see it as a negative okay after the ducks caps game on Friday Orion gets left called Gannett Catholic cowardly For taking so long to respond After the spitting stuff gets left said hatheway could have done a lot better job sticking up for himself answering the bell when he should have. I thought it was a cowardly thing to do to sit around and wait and wait and wait and act like he gets to make the decision when he when he spit on someone They used to be a pride in a code and again that you answer the bell when you do things like that and a good Branson expressed disappointment as well but he appeared to move on Quote not ideal from my hi standpoint. I thought it was a pretty simple thing to deal with but he handled it the way he wanted to handle it. Which is certainly not the way I would have but at the end of the day had happened and I'm happy it's over with and we can put it to bed I Those culture courtesy of Russian machine never breaks Biz. I knew you had some comments on this. Yeah I'm a little confused too. I've never done that. You know I would never cross where I felt like the need to spit in someone's face but if I if they did an all female different story but it was it was requested. Okay pure. You're fucked up all right. I'm not even trying to talk about the sex shit and you're the one bringing it up. How do I get hammered on sex ship you guys teaming up more than anything now lost my train of thought but if I had ever done on it the first thing I would have done in warm ups would call them over and say dude? I'm fucking sorry about that. I was a fuck up but yeah I shift. Let's let's get this over over with fight. Get now the only explanation for is maybe hathaway knew that good brands could fuck and beat him up and he and he was maybe a little scared to fight him so he was trying to play mind games in order to maybe fuck with his rhythm but man about the fact that you fucked up and you spit in another man's face. I know some people think that it was deserved because of the sucker that good Branson gave him unexpectedly. But I think spitting someone's face is crossing the line so What do you think the only question I have is? When did the fight ended up going down that game? Yeah listen dude. Hathaway ain't a fighter Cabrera's a monster and he's tough like that socks but you gotta do that right away one for your own good and by the way that somebody who's leading up to that game he's just like faulk me and when he got traded where do you get he from Calgary so he knew it was gonna he probably right away. Someone like that's like what am I playing him again. I know Oh after. Fight him that game get it out of the way it sucks but you spit in his face there. There's a couple of things you know you bully. Someone's brother or sister year. End Up having a fight. The older brother this things in life spitting so no you spit in someone's face you have to fight the person so do it right away and I also say Gets laugh has all the credit in the world is a guy who can come to the media and say something like that not come the media when he's asked say something like that because he would answer the bill. All I saw gets off. Fight Joel off. The opening faceoff playoff game. There was never any question of Ryan gets up thawed to fight someone. WHO's fighting him? He sees somebody does the complete opposite. He has the right to say something hall. However he signed every autograph in in a few years Ryan gets off and then you'll hall famous do they? Rate H. O.. F. And the year they were inducted opted. How's that for a fucking autograph? You'd say whatever you want I would completely agree on when he speaks. It's usually because he's right and and recently actually called his team when they were struggling with a little bit he went. He went public with it. And said I need to be fucking better and everyone is locker and receive better and like he's not he's not a raw raw type of guy he just shows was op handles his business. So when you don't want a guy like that talks in the locker room and everyone's like Oh my God it's like your old man threatened to get you with the spoon I will send it over to a buddy. Hazy would just do a quick little injury round up in case you're unaware your team might be missing a guy just mentioned Colorado. What they they had to deal with Saturday night the leafs Forward Andre Johnson was placed on long-term injury reserve that the hurt his leg blocking shot during Wednesday's loss to Colorado. He had skin a cat scan the fallen day. He'll be reassessed by doctors after Christmas. Got Sixteen points in thirty games. He's a good contributes at out squad. the Blackhawks They just three points behind the second wildcard spot right now but the playoff chase just a little bit tougher They lost both Duncan Keith. and Andrew shots a pair of injuries he's going to be out for a few weeks Just mentioned many place Mikko Koivu on. I do the lower body injury and travis connect knee suffered enough of upper body injury during Saturday's he's tilt versus Ottawa Boys. Oh actually we didn't get to that game. That was unreal game Saturday but connected. He's GonNa be out of flies. We'll have an update Monday. Did you guys get a chance to see that Saturday. The afternoon 'til Fillion Ottawa. Very physical very entertaining game And then Brady CA chuck at the end of the Game Biz. Gave a little cross check to. What's his name lodden? You had been run around around all game and basically Brady's you say is why is crossed. He gave them a nasty. Crosscheck will not nasty little crush. That then he kind of jumped on math that he ended up getting fined. Twenty five hundred bucks Check this game out at all. Yeah I saw the game not all of it but I did see the end that moment. The only thing I'd say is I think Brady could chuck goes over. And well. He crushed him first and then he kind of dropped his gloves and jumped him. It's kind of weird to say because it makes no sense now that I think about it but it's almost better if you just kinda jump drop your gloves and grab them and give them somewhat of a moment because he didn't jump until he was down on the ground and I don't think he drilled them with a punch too bad when he was on the ground but he also he could've made that where if I wanna get you I can get you in a different way but used pissed off. That's a that's what I consider a pretty dirty play a guy that's frustrated frustrated but doesn't really want to square off with someone that's what it looked like to me k now I don't know the time line. Ra but at one point Lawton John was was yelling taunting the Ottawa bench. I didn't see that right so that's why I looked into it online because I didn't get to see the game aim so I was trying to piece everything together so it was a physical game. Things were getting chippy. I don't know what was said by law into Ottawa's bench that could have even been after that That that he got jumped. But I will say this. I don't think what's his name. Brady could shock was happy about him saying that to the bench. And that's that's why he went over and did that. I think that him doing that and skating over I think Lawton was well aware that he probably wanted to scrap them now. The way the way it all went down. Yeah you could also make the argument like no we Kinda fucking blindsided them and then jumped. But if if I'm yelling at a bench and then that guy that guy specifically typically and then I'm on the ice with them I- contacts being made. He's well aware that that I'm on. The ICE. Like Lot knew he was out on the ice snow. You GotTa think also you gotTa give credit what across check because you e- cake this little area between the shoulder pads and the pants that you seniors cripple someone right in the rib and you could tell it to recall them unless Lawton completely die but look like it was a solid one and then Brady said fuck. That dropped his club song. This is what I looked at the way I looked at overall is is brady. Chuck was sticking up for the integrity of his team because lot and was chirping at the bench which whatever the game got chippy. I don't know what maybe Brady. He could chuck it given him across check earlier. Where that's why? He was fucking yelling at the bench. I don't know but I'm download Brady. Could Chuck sticking up for his fucking team like that regardless if they were only down a a goal with whatever time boys they're going for the lottery pick like who who who gives a fuck at that point like what Brady Chuck Show. Does he cares about his boys in this crest and if I'm an auto a phantom. I'm very pleased about that. He Ain't just rolling over. Yeah when he slammed into the I don't even think he'd throw a shot. I think it was more of a lie. What are you look just like his old man when he did he wasn't going to the that's what I kind of man? He didn't drop his glove and hit him in the cheek with a punch when down on the ground look almost shaken them and just prior to that Brady got checked into the bench. And I don't know if you start. It looked like one of the flyers grabbed his stick when he was skating away. You know when guys get checked on the bench the the opponents talk with them a little bit so it looked like they would be like. What's your credit card number? It looks like they've talked with him. Just just prior to that so that probably set them off even further but not beat a dead Ed Horror Story. I believe that was a response to lot in Turpin the bench and that's why he went after him just watching the clip over in a time line so something was set by law because she looked fucking mad when he was yelling at the bench. A couple of F. bombs in there yes definitely a very chippy game. Even Buddy Jake. Chuck dropped the gloves without with Nick Wall after Paul Buried. I think it was connecting. Who Paul buried so Definitely an entertaining hill and I think we should send it over to our favorite flyer right about now. Kevin Hayes would he okay boys. Let's without further ADO buddy. Kevin Hayes the best one. What a pleasure? What a pleasure that'd be joined by one of our favorites one of our most popular recurring guests?

We we interviewed for the Strip that we're getting you and We were just talking about before the interview started. We were talking about him with the music situation. -Tuation now you're saying in the locker before games. That's you're you're at a full blown concert and he only plays life like you know like for you guys you spotify if I up on music song and it's the song that everyone listens to. It's the same. I'm the only one here that has it without. The ads doesn't premium I'll okay. You guys preview so he only listens to live very little. I've ever sauce. It's like a live versions of little POPs that somebody recorded on their fully. That's on cassette tape. But like all of you. Listen if you say like a Bruce Springsteen song and you go to it on spotify three minutes right. His is the live version. That's seven to twelve minutes. Like oh good intro. Talk Fourteen minutes. He knows the whole conversation to like. So of Bruce is talking queen is talking to the audience. He says it as if he's them in the line he's walking around with. The hot is unbelievable. Look at the Queen's never really listened. I'm usually like up to up to date with the new music and stuff so I never really. Dad was obsessed with old school music. Can he used to make me drive around and pick up tickets and money with them growing up and I hated going in the car with them because it was for like get home from school. He'd be like hey we gotta go pick up something hopefully flee how long. It's like ten minutes four hours later at right back on my crying. My Dad had me in the car for so long. Driving around. Listen to the seventies on seven sixties on six. I hated eight of the old school music. That's why I always listen to the new music and four check is completely turned it around. I know everywhere all plays now. It's unbelievable fab. Top Autumn Girl Queen. He mentioned Queen. Loves Queens. LOVES BRUCE IF I could go back in time I think Queen would be the one concert that I would go live that he always plays alive. Dacian version live aid. That's the movie one. Yeah like when we were in Chicago for the recent trip flyers. replaying planning. It's the hawks and six Nipe in that game. Thank you one call back an one call the only one who scored broken check. That day we went to coffee in the morning and I I just like always loved Borchet. Com told me stories. I asked you right away. Like he's one of the best people people I've ever met. He really is an unbelievable think he has. The best stories doesn't give a shit. Oh he doesn't even shit. The law has like the Czech accent too so it just makes it that much fun. and He's dead serious when he tells these funny stories. When I tell stories I you know something funny? It's coming because I start dying often store and he tells it with a straight face and I'm like what is going on. Should I sit actually. was that the punchline. Yeah but you don't know because when you try to make a joke lies telling the story but he's not in a joke 'cause he wants to finish his story and but then I sit next on the plane too so he always talks about like old school game compared to the because he's definitely been in both both versions and he's an old school player like an old school guy too you and it's back to music. It's so funny. He loves one. Sammy Adam Song driving me crazy. So we're flying home from Boston big big win shootout win And he played. Sammy Adams driving me crazy. Like Forty Times on my phone and and just kept on playing it back but he was reading the lyrics on his. He's like I need to learn. This layer memorize only knows the chorus of like driving me crazy like that. So he's sitting there playing playing cards in his check. Accent wrapping as we're flying like people are trying to make the calls at a card game. He's walking up broken glass cingulate singing all his stuff. Christmas is is a karaoke. Want her all. I do by twenty five days of gifts Christmas. Everybody's doing new give gifts out you give just every. Is this your home on move. Whatever Hockey Jersey number you are you gotta give that day and if you don't get if you're hired in twenty five you fill it on the other days? What a move by the fifty million dollars off some of this shit too? So you signed that deal. Kevin in Rome Likes Basketball Zapata congratulate you like what's the vibe so there was a bunch of a bunch of articles came a wit. Have my back on one of them that that was. Yeah Oh yeah I actually we. I ran into him at the airport. Actually Franks volume Any reporter nobody's out of. I think he started as a filler report. Yeah Yeah and Literally the day. I got to Philly how this happened. I don't know I don't understand like I landed in the the airport and he was on my flight and I'm sitting there waiting for my bag and he comes up to me and he's like Hey Frank and I don't really know who he was and he was like I didn't mean to cause anything with article but it just so happened literally. The day I moved to Philly. I ran into like before what happened. What was said? I remember. WH- it back in the up hours. Something was said something said. We're like I told the current NHL player that. I'm the only way I'll come to phillies. If they overpay me crazy and let me my my four goals says release back up right now but so but they take take one away. They've somebody else offsides. God No Blake. That's just a side story but but But like so. That article came out so I think that was kind of in the media so early on I could. It's hard coming to a new team like being the new guy especially the team so close and when you signed that deal you're supposed to be a big part of the team right away so I try to be like in. I'm a pretty personal guy. So guy tried to like step right in and join join the guys and stuff and there was a couple or remarks being like. Yeah I know we get it. You only came here because you wanted the money and stuff but like I think it all stems from that article. It was a podcast. I think I think so. Yeah I again I think the fans got one of the fans and then it went viral and let the philly media of fans so all of a sudden for less than I wasn't there. You're saying you didn't say it now. You're you're kind of behind the eight ball a little bit by public deception a little bit tough city. No it isn't it is awesome so far I mean we're playing well But like I think that like what the guy guys are joking. I mean if you know you catch exactly even if that article never came on catching heat for signing the deal yes I think we should make a lot of money. It's would you have on the board first game of the year Especially when that's a guy who is rich as you. Now you're like all special call action lawn bone in the Waddell beef. I think it was a team. Dinner six dollars go to Nobu team dinner. Six grand grand for the trainers grand for game-winner bow. Wow try actually had on national the other night but then I but then jake walks in. And it's his hometown. You dropped me. See what he writes. Wall Wall Wall Jake the snake God again like he and he got to hear this. We gotta hear you tell what it was was. It was at a Toyota Corolla it. There's a lot you can probably buy it though what I'm saying but like I mean that was a big win for the fun of mocking a lot of the year here because I signed connecting over oxide hometown time signed. And it's like you guys got football game discontents. First Game Seventy Five K.. Heavy it was a huge range. Rover define honor supercharge on you by the way go ahead. Good going back to the story with the Serravalle. He hurt some that. Maybe someone in your inner struggle something that wrong i. I honestly think it was probably like the in a boss that was in before the Boston game name and honesty the the night that he said I said it. I was actually in Philly with Chuck Fletcher. I wasn't even in the town of Boston that day. And and so it was probably someone that knows my family you you know. It's like everyone around. Boss is three hundred forty and someone probably said something like all. There's no way he's going affiliate because they just Boston people think they know everything and and then they price added in all the only way he's going he said why would i. Why would I ever say that to anyway? Why would you? Why would I ever say something like that? That would make me look like an idiot. If if that thing eventually happened and so I I I mean I'm not like shit on Franken all because we squad should combine them. He actually ride home from the airport. The brick built all. I'm like the last guy who wants to get into coffee with any type of meat. It just sucks. Fox's he probably ran with it you know it would maybe bowl it probably bolstered his podcast and then someone in the right environment and everybody loses. Yeah I was still route though this clown what playing golf and this is morning or the afternoon where the deals done. I'm like dude I'M GONNA put it out Sir. I have two people him and Keith where I could break contracts. He's like yeah you can break. I can tell me he goes. It's done but don't write it yet. I'm like all right tell me one. I'm scrolling through twitter and nineteen reporters Kevin Hayes seven fifty seven forty nine also. I was off by millions. You know I gave you the right numbers. I didn't release it. I because it's my agent now works with a big company and I think that the the people work with the reporters are now with that like the hairs if I say it so it honestly got out before even officially don't break the contract golf do that morning and I'll make hay out. Something might happen tonight. They I told rich. This is crazy that I even have to ask you to explain this but recently the a few articles were released about money on the board and people who listen in this podcast were still asking us. Even Grenell will vouch for me. Oh what's the money on the board. Is it like gambling. If you put it up you can win it. Explain what money and the board means because we just said that. The Range Rover that the team had put define first game of the year. Ex- explain Myanmar. I so money. The board is on every team team. It's in the NHL H. L.. It's it's everywhere I mean even I think college teams like do it as a joke. Pray for a little less money but a much. All Juniors it was I I was in junior. B Locker Room recently stepped on the team logo in the middle of the room and they said two dollars so I fucking one hundred. US and I go so they went and Party party like Vora Campaign Don in well in non Perreault us so money the board is it's usually. It's a big game for someone on that team. You like for trade from Home Taus the like the silent rule is like your last two who teams if you're a suitcase and you've played for eight teams able to put money in the board eight times for every team you were played for like I got drafted now see. I hunted guys down. I'd I be like I saw a picture. You wearing. A Calgary flavors Rue des he he gets people so we had. We had a guy On our team just get called up and he played for a junior team that hoots goods as part ownership is the supports t right so someone was like. Hey what team did you play for a junior and he said it jeeze I o incudes. Don't you own that team buddy. Money Liberal I gotta do your case so I guess some of these people are right in asking you. There's a lot that goes to money on the board relation from from the older guys. The younger guys where you get bullied to putting money up and they're like we're gonNA fucking pay for another bottle of came as so hundred percent and then you gotta be careful who you tell you leave tickets for because if a young guy tells me make a girls don't even say we're playing in they say Chicago and like a younger guy. 'cause obviously have to to progressive two girls tutorials tickets and I tell Jee- JEEZE I. Did anyone leave. Girls Young. Have to be like the other day. SAY NAMES WE'RE ARE IN A. We're in Calgary and Stewart's like did I see anyone walking hand in hand with their girlfriend into the lobby Calgary but I've never seen money in aboard the amount of money that goes on the board in Philly but the reasons we know everyone play soccer before the game whoever hits the roof with the ball the most has a two fifty. Oh I've never heard of that. Build the fun home Mike. I would've gotten you like you're playing Chicago. Goes like hazy. Anyone drafted by the black holes from wonder no wonder drew got new teeth. He probably paid for with the fucking say it so in the rule is to. It's not the rule but like two teams and I got traded to Winnipeg so that acts is out Chicago so I don't put money in the board and then so some. JV is like. Did anyone get draft after the first round of Chicago and people like who the Hell Chicago and I'm like oh I did it. They're like one hundred percent. I got called last game. 'cause we like Farabi. He just played his eleven game so now he burned here with contract. It's money in the world. Oh Don on deal you guys are here in Philly. So I've seen a few teams at a few guys be able to manipulate money board like if I was a healthy scratch they'd somehow talk me into sears. And then we went on a seven game winning streak so I was putting up like one hundred or two hundred bucks every game. I don't know I wasn't making that much money. I was putting fifteen hundred on my salary on the board a three-week stretch but this is sane. No it's insane. What the reason but the amount we all? We don't want to sound like we're assholes with money but you can find any reason for money. The more you have to put that much. No would've been making reason. Exactly things also change early on when you come on board and you're like Oh shit they're going to make me put money on the board so you're putting one hundred dollars hours at a time now where it was when you sign a big contract you have to be very cautious is the same amount as fabio up in Jerusalem zero on the back. Yeah just add one more good so in Boston. I put money in the book because it's my hometown right and like but then I'm like how the hell does that make sense sense because we're never going to play a game in Welland Ontario. All that all of those guys get paid all maple. Usually it goes. Close a scam so I would always have to put I would always put. Shaw always put Buffalo. Yeah that's my bubble so I want more for the listens to how does the money get dispersed the money what. How does it get all these if you win? That means you all that money. Okay one of the train is usually takes a picture of puts a date and then you have a certain date to pay the defined fun okay and then the money goes into a fine fund. One Guy on the team has credit card for the fund and its team. Dinner's getting T.. So the misconception is people thought Oh you you put that much money up and you win that if no if you're saying boys when this fucker it'd take my money my fucking we're going to go. Nobody pays that's why I game of the year overseas. They got every they basically whole team was new lil. They probably we talked a lot of money and game. Probably Talk Perot into putting fucking money or by the sound and they win it and as we said they want the team's gotta range injure over in the final less than twenty four hours into the season going to be a fun year. Where every time you're on the road and there's over ten guys at like having a couple POPs ops? Maybe you go for dinner. Yeah exactly like ten guys out there. It's usually like someone picks up the TAB and then you're like you come in the next age like hey I paid last night can find fun river. She WanNa go play fortnight. While you're not GONNA get through experienced by the school shifted. Say something that you you know. Sometimes I I'm the only guy that has the balls to say it as a former player fight a lot of money on the board and we got a point. We're in the shootout uh-huh yet. We still got a point. That game boys when I had I five hundred and up on the board I was sweating. I was okay with a point. But there's there's there's some times where it is the stupidest reason why there's money in the board and then you can convince anyone to put that amount of money in the board like rookie like Niskanen always had some roof. The most so he's to fifty every game. Are you a soccer guy. Though I really don with just they don't even pay him. I'm the money more this allocate part of his page so sometimes teams instead of paying a checkout. It comes out of your paycheck in the to find fun when you have money in the war which I think is as you don't WanNa go to the bank. There's some dot. Yeah but then the guy that is the fine collector like is all hi. This is the thirtieth time I've asked you to pay your fine. They can use true and and the fact that sometimes there's a little confusion. Yeah oh I remember when the shitter. I gave it to you. You're looking at that playboy. I could tell your wife you're looking at playboys in the stock girlfriends other game. If if your parents are intolerant parents were in town and Phil. You probably have to put up. You gotTA keep it quiet. Yeah okay so you guys seem a close team and you and you mentioned that you guys. I still do silly junior shit like mustache boy in the magazine away but I just came up with the idea to G and I want I want this to happen. I I don't know like I want to tell you guys I feel like this could be honore Kevin so I think it's going to be really funny. It could be stupid but if you don't like so do people know the listeners. You know what mustache boy is. Yeah shootout after practice last guy to finally put a pocket in the net. Yeah has to have we WANNA WE WANNA do like That at that shootout but you have to do an interview with like the typical hockey slaying saying the Canadian junior guy you know real inter yet associated with that would be awesome that we want to be so bad and then we rank them all at the boys were buzzing i. Just it's like they're stupid. You have to save them so that might that might happen soon. We'll see I think we need to get behind this and then we'll have of our fans vote on who is the best and maybe we can do the interview. Maybe we can get the loser. This starting the season in Europe it. It seemed like a long way to Gulf one game. But was it worth it in the long For me it was great because I I got just got the right Jacobs Waco Week but like as a new guy. It's it's such an easy way to get to know your teammates. Where like when you play when you were in your hometown not your hometown team? Where your your team is at like guys have wive guys have girlfriends guys have kids like they have their own lives outside the rinks like during training? It's hard to get to know guys because you don't you don't want to bore them like hey come up to near the on the new guy. They have their shit going on like. That's totally understandable plug in Europe. We're all in the same schedule. There's no wives and girlfriends. They're out to dinner every single night. They'll lives play playing cards cards like it was awesome to know that he had actually get to know your teammates really well and I think A great reason for why we started pretty well as a three new coaches new players and like that trip kind of was a huge in trip for us again. I I thought it actually really. Everybody knows what everyone's going through because the new guy exactly like and so like we went to Louis Luzon Switzerland. We actually lost the game. I remember five four or something with probably. They were Basel they were they were. They were a good team. But there's probably a good thing for us because we're going to take home town coming off a loss and league so I think it kind out of made us. Yeah we go that hard we source pucker up Betas realize hey. We can't be starting the season like this. We gotta figure figured out quickly. We know he's GonNa be ripping it up so check check was at the be. The last night was epic. It was so fun but I think the loss actually really made it a lot like got us in better shape at Hawkesbury roast them seven one we go and rip it up in Prague Iraq. Probably just say Europe trip like we're going to jake hometown one game and but I think it actually like cruising around him. He's celebrity over really. Yeah everybody goes everywhere like there. There was one guy who asked for autographs outside the sorry crying no way it was unbelievable and he has. The highest voice was was was. Jackie Lavin just hugging him and he realized his hometown and like the he. He the Abrasive for sure shaky start singing tunnel. He was very professional about it. He probably was asked to do a lot of shit there. That is pretty aggravating aggravating. Like you you have an off day. You don't want to go take pictures by the bridge or interviews all the time and he. He kind of embraced. It ended in a very professional way. But like this guy hi that was crying like the highest pitch voice in the world so it's still a practice screaming we're linemates so you ask you for Bassett's everything coots hairs incudes sides diet if people would be like. Oh that's me it's no it's not. ooh I gave you a moment to bond over. He got US moment would take it for like I. I love just fucking around around practice. Is you kind of live for janitors by favor. The guys on this team actually think I've been saying like they say hey it's like you said when you started laughing. What are you trying to like Michael Ralf? Oh He's like man. What is wrong with you seriously and I said in the change room? I'm in. He's unbelievable to Australians. I play with him and grabbed her. The same exact person 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 they're like I don't know he's the best player ever in so like I didn't know what to say at the time so I'm like yeah. He should be a top twenty center. But I didn't really I said it to say 'cause I played for Philly but like after playing. I think it's been seventeen games. Maybe a hundred percent deserves to be analysis. Now listen he's he's the East Coast. copay tar to me yeah. That's good actually no. He's he's heavy he. Just you said great. Two Hundred Foot tame to he does. I hope people I want. Yeah there is sometimes. We're like it's not even like a comes from board to board and if someone is ending their on the bachelor fuck but pretty big. Yeah you can put a total talent. The guys he'll score fucking twenty five goals a year right. They're not necessarily I think if you if he pledged to the right people you just say. Hey if you can skate and do some go to the net and like Sarah Eh mug touch exact or thirty but fifteen 'cause I know this isn't NHL podcast. And I fade. It wants to try Brian. What he's saying right now? It's funny I played. I took ice skate. I I played right now I I I played online. Would like to have a roommate a week would play and then I played one week and like hey we actually need a body WanNa play again and I played one kid wandering applause goal. One kid at two who awesome high school plays and do it. I would get set up more than fucking ellen degeneres in highschool every fucking priest I could score all day and it was like wow. I'm not even good but like planets. It's two other guys like that on any level like you just put I wanna see. Ra Press Goalie challenged I and Ra. Well actually I'm team. Ra A. R.. A. said he thinks he can beat with in a game of basketball. I one to ten one on one. I suck at basketball. I said it's the only regular why played high school and he's Izhak uh-huh I put a thousand bucks on IRA. I would honestly be worried about me getting hurt. That's my only equals on agree. If you seen seen me like I'll I don't think I'll ever be on camera with shorts if you're putting money on the board for Ra or wet thousand bucks you think I need is thousands box with Ra fuck. He didn't appear pants. Are you're like hey take this thousand. Get a new wardrobe and he throws rose on the devil's money. Dude come on all right general six in a row dude. What else do what else is? So so like what are you doing with your off time here any like any movies. What your deal like? What are you in a movie theater? See Anything lately. There's a AH joker well we're talking about. I liked it. Yeah do you gotTa See Jack. Do the joker you know. He has his shirt off the the arms over his head. All the weird Danny de it does it lager. It's so funny for finding vomit up. No wonder he they pam so Mike really is. He's so funny and he. It just seems like a very honest to like I feel like Europeans are a lot more honest than Americans. North Americans don't really have a sense. What's him in Geez relations? Oh it's so so funny. It's because they've got soul right and and G G is. He's pretty serious but he likes to joke around the same time but like he's he's a captain so he like you can't be cloudy in hill started going off and we'll be like g shut the fuck or like coots always going to and they'll be an argument going on over here and vortex this shit I've been dealing with for eight years. She just listened to. GD Old married couple. This is the shit that I've been dealing with that. That's one thing I was GONNA say about coots too and I guess really. Your whole team is all these guys who are good are awesome. Yeah so so you just gotTa like he's just like nice and it's it's weird. They the two teams that I've got traded to because I know a pretty good amount of guys in the league. The two teams. I've gone traded to Winnipeg in Philly. I didn't know anyone in the teams like here. I knew ghosts ghosts a little bit through. Jani Haughey's Charity Golf Tournament Donate to it. And that's that's it so I I was brand new to both teams and the this team is the closest team. I've ever Winnipeg I mean. Do you WANNA get into that. I personally I might not have been the best experience but ah no. It was just different like I got traded from New York. New York City to Winnipeg is Yasser Culture Shock. Yeah it was like the way this movie came out lash in fact I was Utah. They challenge for me like I. I didn't leave my apartment for three weeks. I would go. That's not your the Euro One Euro Walker at the coffee shop like yeah. Try to text everyone. That's on my team. They cover coffee. Yeah just come like if you walk with your wife saw by as a single guy appreciate it guys like you when I was in Arizona had like no no single guys. I be like on three dates a day at starbucks out to practice I go for George Barna Bender over my one bedroom fucking apartment you plan. NHL Asked us all about my first ever NHL Hundred Ninety dollars one hundred percents the cheapest H. L. History speaking of him. How about the song just taken off you see him Song Fan and the islanders they tro check was wearing a song? A Song Christmas sweater with me. He's he kind of fortune. He's again Keith. got a little bit known as like the funniest guy in the league. Everyone talks about Phil Kessel. I don't know Phil really like I say hi norm. But he's kind of a legend that no one really knows what was going one all about. Yeah and that's I think that's Wojciech for me like people say like. Oh you've got to play with Phil Kessel before your career you have to play with. He's unbelievable he's so funny and I guess he when He. I don't know if you guys are gonNA release before me but I I guess he was way more wild before for clear. I'm thirty now. I can't do it by best. Friends is is Rick Nash and he played in Columbus with Jase right and so when I they were young pretty young trade her natural. Like hey you gotta make sure like talk to Jake. He's awesome but like again. I didn't know anyone on the team and playing in New York. You hated Philly. Yeah I mean it was just like even if you didn't actually hate philly. It was just like he kind of had to play the role. And let's Say York Islanders Philly devils voles boss accurate. Hate them like it's just because you played it. I was there for five years so I knew nothing about this organization honestly when I came down here and I got traded here I came by myself off. Call my agent. I'm like man I I loved it here. I was a call chuck and kind of figure something out here like they made that trade. Not Knowing if you would word right. I mean. They hadn't met on a golf course in Minnesota. They don't WanNA president like yeah but like I was reading my phones at two percent my fault my agent called me was. Hey you just got traded to percents. I'm on hold twelve of forty eight forty eight over. Take my driving point right so on just to talk trade tomorrow. I gotTA straighten this thing out losing this but no but like back to like not knowing anyone on this team and then you come here and it's it's just like I honestly feel like I've been for the boys Brian. How is this kid so comfortable already so nice? That's the feeling it is. It really is anything about New York. What what city? I love that city. It's it's awesome Like to be able to get home from practice and you don't you don't work nine to five and you can just go out to meat-packing can her. So that was right Allie. We've we've done New York before it so you like the policy and that's yeah like you for me. I do minds on. I don't think I could play in a city. That wasn't a big city dude. If you like. We're on the Carolina hurricane from seven years ago. The yeah the. I don't know what I would do your mind. Yeah so like for me. I Love New York as a city. And it's it's weird like I loved my time there. It was awesome. I have some of the best memories and some of the best friends that I've ever made through hockey but now like I play for Philly and like I got in trouble early for like for trash and the organization or something. I didn't mean no harm to the organization but like I can't Bich- saying how much I love New York in how much I loved everyone there when I play for Philly. Yeah you've moved on one hundred percents well th. They moved on to keep you reasonably like our phone for sure herb but like I loved my time there and we've had unbelievable teams here but it's like I play flyers now and it's like I love I honestly I've had I'm having so a a Lotta played those guys and you know it's a whole new team but I. I am enjoying hockey so much right now. Like I love where Matt at the time of my life like twenty-seven playing good hockey making pretty good money and like reading and living in Philly. And it's been it's been it's been unbelievable. So far The goalie young. Have you ever played a goalie. Seem that seems pretty. Unflappable for young played with Quist. I know but it is. It's cool to like play with a to play with Hank for for five years to see how like how dedicated uh-huh his framework and like He. He's he's one of the hardest working teammates I've ever played with like He. He loves to win Obviously Hanky has a lot of accolades in his in his career. And it's cool to see like how he goes about his daily life professionally and like for me. I just thought Oh. He's played so the only games like he's just learned how to become a professional and I come here and I'm considered somewhat of an older guy on the team. I've been in the League for six years now and to see party like he reminds me of Hank the way he goes about his life but they're so opposite an age like heart she's only twenty one years old like he is working on his game in he is also one of the hardest. Working guy watched a ton of film like he if he lets goals. Et takes it to heart lake in attractive as weird no pun intended. But but he's just seem old all you just seems very mature though he is composed Eh. No one hundred percent but I think at the same time I think a someone that helps helps them. Do that is the backup. That doesn't get a lot of attention here. Brian Elliott. Who's still really really good? And he's unbelievable guy so I think he helps Artie. Doc Hearty such a young guy and I don't know how it is a goalie but like if if you're designated starter to designated backup but I don't know how that relationship is. I'm sure every goalie wants to be the starter and I think they're on a friendship level. Where like party feel super comfortable with Moose in? Yeah you don't want a guy who's maybe like. Oh you're not applying. Well I'M GONNA weasel and they're like hey man listen like when I was going through this. Yeah that's how it is that is so value of a mental Woah. Like Moose's their hearty artsy struggled a little bit earlier this year and Moose came in and one three who yes. Yeah we were there already were shooting when he was a witness fake shot Halford. What happened for somebody wouldn't have been that great? But I think that actually but I think knows this kid's the future sort of on the back nine. Besides Gee I would say heart sees the face of the flyers. How hard was that early on? When he was struggling? A little BECCA faulk man. These fans can get hard like yeah in it good for him. He took it so again he he actually gets pissed when you say well before beginning like Kat it again. He's like we. Stop saying that like you guys got to stop saying it. Then you gotta get up getting this kitchen though it it so like but I honestly for me when I was young and I was struggling like I had had. Yan's I had national Mardi Saint Louis like dude you're in the fucking NHL Relax. You're not down it's fine. I think that actually really helps artsy back in Moose. Everyone talks about the goalie. When you think about the goalie in Philly you think well Carter Heart? And he's unbelievable but I think Brian Elliott has lots of two so like big not to get a little deep on you but I like you know really good friends with your brother Jimmy and things right now like his careers not necessarily over. But it's been like a tough go for the past couple years and you've just flourished and all the things you've accomplished like do you feel really blessed a lot like do you understand that you feel lucky in life on where you're at and they deserve all of it but it's just an awesome place where you are in life right now one hundred percent and like I never in my life who would ever think a financial for this long eight. Never make when you're we're like ten and eleven and I thought for sure like all I want to spend any joe but then like I went through my pride my first two years of college. You weren't that good when I was like fuck. I need to go to class. I still wasn't gonNA glass but they need to go to class to get a job like wait. This isn't like going as I planned all like like literally. I think my second year myself fat boy though Right Jack now though like my second year yeah I remember my dad and my assistant coach. We're talking to me like they weren't even and I think I had. I don't want to be wrong here. But it'd be my yeah. I think I had six goals. And five of them were on the power play so my whole second year software or college. I think I had one five on five goal. And you're a first round pick. Yeah Yeah you like to think. I'm not sure you can. I be the assistant coach here. He's going to check it for for freshman. You the five on five. Yes yes. I remember like my sophomore. I'm like Holy Shit. I actually don't know hockey's going the thing for me I wanted to be. Did you change that summer. All by injury okay. Injury run your dog over. Hockey deep. CBC's Winnipeg Jersey. Click on it and get to look. I didn't know you can do that. On Mojo in Winnipeg explain. What's happening right now so apparently this might be a new feature on hockey DP? You're welcome dug up for edible rate cook on for the Rangers. It gives them a different picture. That's a new feature else. Yeah I think that's been there you guys. I know what the Fuck I'm doing hockey. I know what hockey Ab Shit going on. No I've yeah. He looks like Nick Cage. In this way we have to ask if you said the thing that changed your entire nick director or of horrible injuries. Knicks Nikkei's remember the Nicholas Cage H. I remember that the face out that just came out like where you take a picture and then it shows four pictures if we yes. You look like a show that I don't even want to do that. I don't know who really you said. The injury changed the trajectory of your career. What injury I got a really bad injury my junior year. College got need against Ole On February twenty six. I remember it was. It was horrible and I ended up having like four surgeries hospital for twenty three days told out never play hockey ever again quad right for scar like yeah you can see it coming out like if I I don't pants off but like you can't muscle here like it just soon scarf from here to here like every time I go into a new locker room at the guys in the flyers like what the fuck is on your leg. It's it's like a huge thing that just comes out and and so like from that like I. I don't remember anything the doctor said exhausts. Soli your to fall back on for all these surgeries and and then like my trainer. Bert Lens always loves these articles that come out to me like about me like doing well and he would. They got the beginning he would send him to the hospital. Well it said like hey. Why are we doing this surgery? This kid's never gonNA play hockey again. All really yeah and he would always keep you always get so happy to be like they tried to wrong. Yeah that's what he thinks like it for me. I love because he helped me like he was the reason that I did so well. Come out of Rehab and rest. Rose I was Kinda signed pro with the hawks out year because I sucked in college in my age it was like maybe we just try a canoe scenery. Maybe that like sometimes you get traded to a new team and you're unbelieveable so you're you're brutal. Let's go to a better league goes. That was. That was our thought process that this happened and I I missed the rest of the a year. I missed odd skate all summer. My I practice my first time. Skating was the practice with the senior. Sixty five points seventy seventies. Oh Oh no johnny hockey play dealers you think maybe the the separation and then maybe the passion again four do for. I'm sure I think I think I party too much You know. And he's been told he did. Yeah Yeah Yeah I mean for for some people might have been too much. ooh Don't like fun but no I honestly think that not to get deep like you said I actually think that was like the best worst thing that's ever happened in my life. Dan Hand like I don't think are easy here like how many people know that stories. Have you told them podcast before. No but I think it's I just from phillies. Just did a article on it it but yeah it is something where like I live. It was in the hospital after my surgery. I was still there and I'm sitting there. Oh my God I almost never was allowed to play hockey ever again. Like sometimes I. If I didn't play hockey I honestly don't know what I would do like no neither do I. It's it's it's crazy to think about because I gotTA scary Jay if you're lucky at the age of forty or yeah then you have another forty years Zaki A- and it's like for me. It was like they still didn't know if I was ever GONNA play hockey even learn how to walk in the it was it was crazy. I would tell a story but I can tell them. What do you mean you went through all this salon embarrassing stories though it was I forget but no I honestly think like that whole summer summer like I rehabbed think and it was more of like a like a fuck you? I'm GONNA prove to these people I can be and you needed that. I think it is a kick in the arse help played with Johnny Hockey to goes back to our rain playing with two players. I mean he seventy two points so it's it's definitely like sometimes like I'll be just by myself and I'm like this is the best life ever you like. Like I worked my whole life for this and then my junior college I almost lost and then fast forward six seven years later. It's like these sheets like hey financial advisor Have you been surprised by the player. MATICA CHECK I know. I know you well Charleston. Everybody's from his is just how good he's been no honestly haven't there's a funny story with him too like his dad's a hall of Famer. His keys is cousins with my mom along with the Fitzgerald's worlds and we have like a big hockey family But like when Matthew and Brady were becoming like legitimate hockey players it was so funny they only look at their data as a fourth line play for the blues like they. Don't they probably remember a little bit. But I never saw it but what they saw at the moment when they were like when Keith was trying to tell them what to do when they were back. Talk and Keith being like you don't know what you're talking about. You're on the fourth line toy ki like Keith Wood. Text US me and my brother and that we would talk talk to them because they thought that we were the ship because we were playing Alagbon walkout. Yes sad because I I it was. It was my dad's plug out there. And so they have a j Keith. Call them and say beat the APPS fucking wheels off those two. It's summer teach wouldn't even mess with those guys you fucking. They're the big boys but like they. They have a summer house in Cape Cod. We have a house in Cape Cod so we would see him in the summer and stuff and it it again. That's a whole full circle thing to remember. What would would you will get you and your brother would keep shirts peg funny? How is the jets or the blues came to the the guy play the Bruins my whole every player that we played with ninety two kings the devils Miss School that day just went to the practice every ten? Am All ask for a thousand people on the hot the hot. Fuck it over one. You guys saying Keith. Tisch remind me of Yan's I I figure I'll tell the story with him there since they're such good buddies but the other night right we. We all met up the panthers played. The Rangers at one. o'clock flew to Boston so we had dinner and then we went out so a bunch of the panthers. Medicine Hooper Dough. Oh and Frankie but Toronto is one of the guys.

The week frowned up. Sold Yeah last week the corner went to and six Lost Two hundred and seventy five bucks off per the pets. I listed one and four on Monday. One and two on Thursday When when we did record Sunday I only had vegas on the money line but when I posted the blog Tuesday I did add vegas in regulation only so sometimes that happens they do play late But Yeah I wouldn't say John Jim but lost a couple of bucks. But that's I write back on it this week Looking ahead till Tuesday night I got a pair of games on my ball and Toronto auto is in Vancouver and ranges in L. A.. I'm GONNA jump on both of those squads east teams going West WE'RE GOING TO JUMP ON TORONTO. Let's see we'll all money line. Do this thing that I read Toronto with the money. Line half of the money line wager on the pipeline and as far as the ranges Our offense maybe not as potent. Oh Toronto so right now. Ranges on the money line in La so who picks Tuesday night Serranto money and have the puck in the ranges money line in La. That's that's where I like right now. What are you hitting buddy? I'm on fire this week on fire. Let me read you something. Quick Right now win Win Win Win Lose Win Win Win Win Win lose lose lose win. Win Win Win Lose Win Win Win. Why good encounter those winds? Everyone and I'll tell you right now. I got three early games Sunday at one o'clock recording. I got this afternoon going on. I'M NOT GONNA I'm not. I am up so oh macho. I'M NOT GONNA lose it all back but I'm GonNa try to really crush. I feel like the moments I really crush his. When I'm up because you get loose you get firing and all of a sudden it's like you get a hat trick and then in a to assist game the third game? What do you think going on your confident you lose? That's me gambling right now. So talk to Whitney on the gambling corner when I lose I lose bad but when I win hi go on vacations. It's up as so. I believe the last time we talked. That was one of your worst stretches. Yeah a a couple of times. So what Hap- I win more like the less. I bet it's it's bizarre. I Dunno I that doesn't make sense. What if I if I lose a couple huge bets Monday and Tuesday? It's like you're you're screw like it's it's almost a miracle to get it all back and end up plus whereas if you chip away and you chip away and you get hot and you chip away and then you just be a little bit more patient. It seems to be the best thing that can help myself as a gambler. So is it like playing blackjack where where. Let's say you're going on this hot little run. Do up the ante more like deter playing with more trips will kind of. That's what I'm saying I can do now whereas I don't WanNa come out hammer or in the chips the first five hands of blackjack. GimMe a bankroll and then I started. DUMMYING EM we're some people just go hard from the start but then if you go down early it's a long week young you're screwed grew so if you kind of build up the amount of the bets from Monday to Sunday night and that's why the Sunday night game usually I'm biting off my fingernails realizing his rider going to be able to go to high school college. Your Hall Call High Schools Free in the end but all well not not. If you're some people's kids some I'm the always paying twenty five K.. For fucking elementary. School Wadi Are you kidding me more more more yes. Isn't that send your kid to elementary school. That's thirty five thousand year urine idiot opportunity you kids picking his nose and you're paying thirty five thousand dollars. You're an Ati the eightieth. Some people would disagree because that's at the point in their life where their brains of a sponge and if they're able to absorb as much as possible in fourth with grade or you can go to fourth grade anywhere. I was just playing devil's advocate now. Is it rude for me to ask during that. Stretch of time that you just listed off as far as your bets. What would you say? You're up one hundred K.. No no I wish I wish wish V it's going to. I don't understand Portnoy that guy literally will be up or are you never up. He'll be down five hundred two thousand I I think would get like I think my financial adviser told my parents that people would come storming in my house. There'd be what do they call it What was that old intervention intervention intervention? And I don't want to deal with that I mean I'll I'll lose thirty grand a man. That sucks but I'm never I mean that's the only thing holding back because the fact that you don't want to have the intervention. I don't want them in my family here. My gambling this. That's what I put in bets. That's that's that's my goal. I'm so intrigued by the whole betting world and that's why it is so true because when you go and you get thousands of dollars out you started thinking everyone's done on this weather it's your your guy. Four hundred we own forty grand. Are you start thinking what you could've spent with the money you're taking out of the bank and it makes you sick. Have we wrapped up gambling corner yet. Yeah Yeah I put my picks in okay One thing I got to talk about so Patrick Reed got busted cheating again. Did you see the club dude. Hi Carol Baby. Let's go patrick. Reid is an absolute slob and a a half but forget how he looks. He's a piece of Shit has zero respect for the game. And I'm going to bring up a person right now Chandler Chandler. I know you're listening. Jan is a friend of mine. He's the head pro at Hazeltine Golf Club in Minnesota Beautiful world-class course that's held Ryder Cups in. US Open's and anything you could imagine. I was there this summer. We'll Chan there's been on. You've been on twitter Chan there and you've really been defending him. I'm guessing you're friends with Patrick read. Because he's been he's been making the point of how do you know what in a player's mind. End All the media. You cannot say that you know exactly what he was doing because you are not him which I do respect it understand. Patrick reads excuse. Was this. This guy's the camera angle where you can see him taking sand in the practice swing when you're in a bunker you cannot touch the sand that is a penalty. Patrick read what he was doing is he was in a footprint so there was a lot of sand behind the ball. What he did was he took practice swings on the takeaway? The practice swing. He took San. He was trying to get rid of some of the sand that was behind his ball so it would make it not as difficult of shot at twice will listen Patrick the second time you did it. You showed exactly what you knew you were. We're doing your a scumbag. And what he came out and said was if there was a camera that was face on. You would have realised I was far enough behind the ball where I was not at all changing in my Lai or just in the sand. And how much and there has my ball if you look. I was a camera angle that we've seen behind me. It looks like I'm right behind the ball take off. Aw that's a fool proof excuse because he knows there wasn't a camera head on but you are a liar. Patrick read and you know exactly what you're doing and this is not not me saying you're a liar because of this one instance. This is a guy that was caught cheating twice in college. When you say the Word Sheet Engulf Ura fucking there? Yeah you want to cheat on your taxes go ahead. You don't golf game of honor and pay raise taxes. Would you just say uh-huh that was one year when I was hurting Listen the game of golf is able. You're able to go out and play eighteen holes by yourself and give your score Gore. 'cause it's a game of honor and I know so many people cheat it's a fact the life by fucking dirtbag in a loser if you do and I'll tell you right now. Patrick read knew exactly what he was doing doing. And what happens a clip from four or five years ago. The same thing comes out where he's taken sand on the practice strip on the practice swings. Patrick read get a fucking can little case of honor and listen. This is a guy who I don't know what's going on with his family but he's got rid of his family. He doesn't talk to his family is his wife is somehow convinced him. Or there's some instance since where his family is no longer in the picture and he's just a guy that is so difficult to root for. I can't stand looking at him. He wore red on Sundays. One time even though tiger did that he's is just a loser and the fact that Tiger Woods in his own tournament watch this guy. Cheat this is tiger woods is hero. Tiga would never cheat go tiger who knows title walking broads. I don't think Tiger Woods sheet on a golf course. Tiger Woods could have said listen. That was so blatantly. Obvious that's such a pathetic. Look for any player in this sport sport. You're off the President's cup team would bring in someone else that would have sent a statement the best of all time. No sorry. That's Kevin Hayes the goat of Golf Tiger Woods if he came out and said you are off the President's Cup team. What a story that would have been? That would have shut. Patrick read up forever but walk instead. It's allowed to go on and you've seen Australian players Mark Leash men in Cameron Smith both say hey. Australia are crowd. Let's give it to this law blitz. Give it to this. This is why one Cameron Smith Cameron Smith said had an incredible quote. He's a young Stud Golfer and Australia. Whose on the President's Cup team it's in Melbourne Mel Melvin? That's how they say Melbourne Mlb U. N.. Melbourne Well Listen Cameron. Smith came out and said I don't have any sympathy for anyone that cheats. I hope the crowd absolutely absolutely gives it to not only him but everyone on the American team next week so look forward to the present and that's unfortunate that I'm rooting for team. My country. Who has a fucking SLOB? Cheats Pizza Golf Okay. So here's where I'm at is I always do. I know that's why there's like an we love you. I'm I'm not a great golfer right golfing with you if I was golfing with you if you were staring right at me and I was like taken back San and shit. Ah I tell you I tell you right away. Hey I'm doing this so I don't shake it into the lips or here for another half an hour. 'cause like the like I'm not having my scorecard. Scorecard POCO chess just like. Hey Man I fucked kind of broke under one hundred. I just wanted to save us some time there right. Yeah but if it was if it was a money match me version. When you did it I'd be like dude? No penalty Iraq correct correct correct. I'm not like on a whole that I'm GonNa take a win on. There was none of that business going on right. If I'M GONNA fucking put a snowman in as opposed to twelve I'll do it okay. You're not there's no money exchanging hands if that's happening right in but I also played a sport where are in hockey like. You're trying to get away with shit all the time. There's like cheating going on every little area like you give a guy a little whack in the back of the knee and the raft and see it while you you fucking you got away with one right so that's a completely different sport in that regard and I guess I was kind of talking about how bad people were about it but here you is a a golfer and how it is. All the game has pitch. Yeah like yeah okay. That's all the game is about honesty. It's a boat I I couldn't my buddy. It's a kid playing in the forego with if he's ever in a bunker and he hits a good shot to close and I'm up on the green on my Zephyr Pars acknowledged duff torn down there. It's actually provide like that's different ballgame. No I know but that is a different thing than what Patrick Reed did but he still knew what he was doing. And you won't convince me otherwise enchanted. I love you. Oh we'll not convince me that he didn't know what he was doing. Well there was another. I think there's a whole reddit thread on times. That fans have seen him cheat there. It was a story that came out. I added a breeding that too because I was intrigued by this whole thing. Now like Ray Ferraro Between the ages in the NHL he he was like what he went. MP went to town on read on twitter. Which I was like? Oh Shit like that's fucking serious thing then and what the story was that he he was in the fescue you and he he addressed the ball and took a big whack at it and then he he. The ball didn't move and what he did was you could tell the guys who noticed him cheating. There's a split second where he's like. Oh God did you see that. And then what he did is he took a couple more wax and then he went up to this category. I'M GONNA Change Clubs. And then he ended up fucking with again and then and I think that's when Patrick Reid is like okay. I can't cheat again for the second time so he went and told the Marshall he so the once again the guys noticed so they wanted to know what this guy was gonna burn a scorecard because I think he ended up posting a double. Aw when it shouldn't in fact been a triple so he so that was another case of patch. Agree treated cheating so as you said I was. I was diving more and more into this. I wanted to get your take gone at so you. So there's no more benefit out. This guy has one hundred flat out a fucking cheater it was. I don't think he had the benefit of dope before this and he's a masters champion. He's a member forever. Gusta Dad guy come out and seeing again about Patrick read recently. The Guy who just talked about that was just after the last incident didn't really yeah. Yeah Oh God so so. What so if it happens again is like the tour? They considered a rules rules violation. He got two strokes. They didn't call it cheating. There's a difference like a he. He's like bulletproof because how good he is. It's bizarre okay. So you don't think if if if he does one more thing because this one got so much attention that they are in fact in an say we're GONNA have to penalize you moving amort. It's it's GonNa say I can't say what it probably will happen again though which is bullshit you all. These guys are coming out and saying stuff. Like how often do you see deep players. Turn on a guy in a league. That's crazy if people don't often say the word cheat in golf either like to say that word is Cameron Smith did. It's a pretty harsh words when you talk about the game of golf players talking about one another. They felt a lot of. Do you think a lot of regular day to day. Golf is like Joe Public Cheat. I've also many they do. Yeah so many people. I also understand if dude if four buddies go out and they all are like twenty-five handicaps body. Fuck you playing your own game with each other. It's way different. Canals lakes moving forward though. I'll be more cognizant of being. Hey I'm taking sandbox. 'cause I don't Wanna I don't WanNa hit a ten on this okay or are we all good here in a little beggar. Invitation on Dallas. Right Rate G.

Because it's been it's been a long week for the family and friends ends of a very special person. His name was Mike Riley Mike Donovan Riley and Good friend of mine a good friend to so many a lot of guys. You've been on this this show Keith. Yandell net haven. Brian Yandell a lot of people. I bring up a really good buddies of Mike Riley and got some awful news and I think that It's best when I'm able to Kinda share something special about the people. I know we have such a great audience in a huge audience. Wild that it's cool to be talk about You know my friends and things they do will. It's awful to have to talk about a friend in this way. But he passed away and I got the news when I was in Vegas last week and and just devastating. Just the biggest Gut Punch in the World Mike Went to a wedding on Saturday. Night and Sunday never woke up and on his poor wife. Jen his parents very special people. I spent time with them A lot of time with them went to their place in Naples in Florida. Tom and Diane Riley. I'm so sorry for you and Mike Sisters It's just been. It's just been a complete a complete nightmare and and I just wanted to talk about them a little bit because to be able to bring up a friend that that I'll never see again just which is crazy to think it's just so crazy you think on never see him again. I'm sure everyone's had these thoughts and since he's passed away everyone was close to him but he made everyone's life like so much more fun this kid and ironically enough mike and I met On a good friend of ours Corey Griffin passed away a couple years ago and I think people have seen the hats I wear. CG The Cougar Foundation. It's it's so eerie to how similar Corean Mike where they just were so inclusive. They treated everyone with with respect back. They treated everyone and they treated everyone the way that You treat your best friend. It was crazy if you met Corey. If you met Mike Right away you were welcomed in a lot of fun. Lot of laughs. Didn't matter where you were. They just like to have a good time and they've really really made everyone else. Feel more at home and more special when you spend in time with them and when Corrie passed away Mike and I had known each other a little bit prior but we weren't we weren't that close definitely friendly but Became really good friends. After he passed away we spent a ton of time together. We golf together. We Love Watching Games together. Mike loved gambling. Kid was eight loved action activism time me and then we're on a flight from Florida. We played we played. It was the day before the Super Bowl against the pats and falcons big comeback. We flew home the the night before and we were we were sitting and we started playing rock paper SCISSOR. I ended up I was it was up. Forty five hundred. Well what are you know. Thirty minutes Riley's up five grant me rock paper says it back and forth and ended up being even which yeah I think is probably a good thing. I think we're letting each other battle back but we became so close and I heard some great stories. You know the the the wake was so hard. Thirteen hundred people showed up to say goodbye to this kid and see his family and it was so so tough I I saw his wife and his parents I started are you know just broke down. I feel so bad for them. It feels so heartbroken for them. It's just not fair at all but then you know the funeral. His father gave the most amazing eulogy. Sorta the sisters they said I think it was a list of fifteen things To live your life the way Mike did just a great list and his father spoke so highly of his son. His only son He just did such an incredible job and after we went in there. was you know people were having drinks celebration in his life. And he's talking Buddy Evan and he told me another just classic classic variety story and I think people have been sharing them on facebook facebook and obviously that night. But you said this was math. Class are not evident. Mike went to a local school. Saint Sebastian's outside Boston. I'm just GonNa read what he wrote your wallet in Mr Sullivan's Matt Gossett states subs we were. We were required to put one of our problems from the homework the night before on the Board Award and we had to show our work to go to the chalkboard and do all the problem and show exactly how you saw. Didn't Evans says I would put mine on the board and I'd go sit down as Mike. Like chicken scratched his out. He's stuck up there he's taken forever whereas I wasn't paying attention and Mike was still up at the board. He would change a portion of my problem so that it didn't make any sense after Mr Sullivan called on me and Mike Listen to me. squirm trying to explain myself knowing what he did he would pull the bag coming down in the seat in front of me. It's stick his cheeks to the opening between the desk hates aged stickers by cheeks through the opening between the best back in the seat so as crack was par impossible for me to not to notice. This wasn't a one time thing. Either he did it many eight times and as I was struggling to get through answering Mr Sullivan he would say in a very serious voice. The teacher and I totally picture Riley doing this. I don't know what seems used to be so funny to Evan. Right now as he was the most mature person in the room got another time I I was telling one of his friends and all of our buddies. You're talking about with me and Ryan me and Riley Harare's played in The WALSTON `member `member `member together and it's it's It's always on Memorial Day weekend. You GotTa Win Five matches to win the thing. It's a grind eighteen hole matches so we one Friday. We one Saturday we we one Sunday Sunday afternoon. We got another matches the semi finals. The finals are played Monday morning. While what happens we're We're we're down four with four ago and we went fifteen we win. Sixteen we win seventeen. We're now down one on with wanting to go and Riley stroking I'm like you're making a fucking bar he goes I am I am this kid he was he was he was like a sixteen handicap. Who who literally hit the ball? Three hundred ten yards. It would just go sideways sometimes but he was an absolute ball striker. Helvin athletes get great hand eye or does he do he just pounds owns driver and then he hits a nice little approach. But it's a little short where it's over the bunker. He's chipping he can chip it up close to the green and knock in a four three and we we we move onto a playoff hole because the team was in for five four. We needed four for three four net. Three well Riley's the chip and he chipset. You said about five feet faulk rile. You're supposed to chip the thing. Like forty yards. Duty Barely gets the thing on the green. He's got fifty feet left fifty to sixty feet left with ten feet of break or is this psychopath do he fucking and said he's running around. Holy Shit I'M I. Try to tack Colombo. We still have more golf. The play it was the biggest ballsy move I've ever seen in my life. A fifty foot ten feet ten feet of break it drops it on the last rotation we go nuts and it was his first part of the walking day God. We ended up losing in the Finals House Monday morning. But what a run we had. We hung out after we talked about it all the time. And he's GonNa be so messed he's going to be so messed so Glad I was is able to talk about him a little bit and more than anything for people who don't don't you know. Obviously they didn't know Mike It's just like Harvey Hug. Your loved loved ones. You know you never you never know. And it's like every day is a gift.

Faulk an ra is high step into the livestream last night which we should probably get right into which shaking his head right now toge. Where's the toe. Jam shirt is already on ebay account with a signature on it. It's a pile of ashes at the bottom of the rented houses fireplace where god. I haven't been more disgusted ever watching a video in my life. You talk about two guys. Girls worn copy. Talk about the thirty atlanta's disgusting stuff in the in the history of the internet. And as i'm eating dinner i see a video of a pick is told cheese from his big toe. You hasn't cut the thing in three months. And he rubs it on my shirt now. Are i walked in the room. I said. are you fucking right. He knew that last night. Because i didn't see you in. The video was broke and i said you're like wall. We gotta get into this in the show guy. May i got a i got. I got plenty of things i to say. There's a blatant video rubbing your toes whether it was dead skin cheese or acid that you left under your toenail from some monster trip you had then then rub it over me while i was in the middle of the discussion so you have to say the highway for this. I think we call it. I was pretty fidgety yesterday. For no reason. I don sometime not no reason. I think you're fidgety guy. You're you're shit and fuck sometime definitely yesterday. Also if you watch the video. I scratched myself thousand times ashy larry. My skin is super dry. I was scratching all day. I scratched it. I don't even remember doing it. It was like sub-conscious touch my foot rubbing wit and watch the video. And that's exactly what i did but it was just a scratch noto cheese. I just i can't even say herbs lee did it. Okay i know this is thinking like way outside the box if i'm like itchy every day and ashy larry as you call it yourself. What about throwing some lotion on your legs. Hey shower robin with albeit team player. You rubbed your mother-in-law's feet with cbd cream and now it's just it's it takes three seconds your legs. Maybe because pasha was a little bit delayed in rolling out the sandbag which will get to as punishment he needs to be. Ra's lotion all pasha. You won that back yesterday but you just lost big one suck on that. Those calves are ready to get rubbed. Where do you. Where do you rate in the sack area. So pasha can get sensitive hands ready. My wife saw me all the time. Says i should use lotion. I'm just the guy. I've never used moisturizing lotion i have. It's like man. I keep walking out of the house. And i'm tripping over my shoe laces and it's like tie your shoes just so easily fixable for a few scratching and then put on me but i'll tell you what though toe jam aside. It's great to see you guys live in the flash. We are down and yeah it's great really overshadow. We're finally altogether already. Didn't make scottsdale right so the last time all of us were together was boston. Sam bagger city fuck We're down here. Doing one of those we can chat about the success of us going to five and one in our careers as partners. Four in a row a little embarrassed. Because i didn't bring my game wit. You is the most complete you've ever brought to the sand bagger and we needed it and we're on a four game winning streak we four game winning streak and you were taking heat which was well deserved ground ball after ground off ground ball at the driver. So i think we're gonna be able to get some things figured out your game. You got new tailor-made clubs tonight thank you so much. What are what are they. The p ninety seventy or seventy we'll figure it out we'll get we'll let you know either way they're pure and listen biz. I am like reading the shatt. It's hard to read. Because when we do the premier i go on. And i'm like china like basically like give my input two different things that are happening because we've watched it prior to being released and people are just all over my parting all over the party. Yeah putting is not my strength. i'm three-under bogey-free and i see some people chirpin me through seventeen. Eighteen look like the easiest par-five in the world. We just drove and we were feeling pretty. Good this is said to me on the sixteenth hole. I totally forgot you said. Are you hitting a good today. I don't have a bogey. is that good. But that just shows that you are in your own world which i've learned to accept his partner but i think we are willing to grow and move forward and sandbag shadow pasha. Who took a lot of heat turned oak tree chaser as well as chase chase helps out with the graphics. He helps out with shooting it a sea. Of course these things aren't easy so we're trying to figure out the production and continue to make them better and better we obviously added drone shots showed securely golf club great track. What's the word that i'm looking for. When the fairways are green in the dormant grass was a. That was a good discussion about that movie when we did remember that word finding the doormat grass. If you haven't seen it's like they keep the fairways. Greens the color green but in the winter when this grass dies they just let it go and it's actually pretty cool. Look it's also nice to play on those courses because he granted you have dessert. You hit into trouble. We saw biz in national. Do that but there's no rough so if you miss the fairway little bit that things running and rolling fast golf so we're releasing other one. We did one more in scottsdale. I don't think we're going to release. The names can release it okay. So we're going to release the names. We got re the wizard. Whitney whitney hockey player. The man who probably gets asked As often now more than anything his life are you though. Pink whitney guy. Because he's a hockey player. He's really is like like like probably admitting lee knowing that he is way above me. In the whitney game right. He's he's he's over thousand games over thousand points. Yeah good x plane while he's also stiff. I've talked for years about how good a player he is. Joined by the one and only Mike babcock stan mike. Commodore i know right. Now you've sandbags you you fans this handbag thinking what a combo and i know that we have many things that are going to be dropped within this video because the day the day is is is in my mind like i see it so clearly still that. I think it's going to be one of our best if not the best excited for to look forward to the next one to come and do some announcing from the car get banged up. Rub rub your on myself by self enticing nash. We're having a great time. He was an absolute comedy show. He's had the pleasure of working with this guy. Since i started in my media career with the coyotes guys he has he has really like made me feel comfortable and and get better in that role. He does the color of on the television side of things for the coyotes. So tyson nash. Who i didn't get a chance to play with in arizona but he was doing the media gig and of course shane. Don't thank you to both. I think that was probably probably the most successful one. As far as numbers early on it was trending at one point. And once again to all you tickles fans who showed up for the livestream. You guys irv or viewing. Excuse me guys have you guys. Are you loyal. Loyal colleague jake halley. How'd you get all the kids. Say i'm not the one. How'd you gain all the weight. Who's up larry king. Yeah yeah yeah so fat. Should we What was the one thing we just discussed the boat on over my keep going sir. All i do wanna mention now. That hockey is back. You can have to find your shot and what better way to do that. Then with pink. Whitney from i much twenty-sixth given chick. What's fans the chance to win. Custom pink whitney shot machine. I have to do is post a picture of you in your pink whitney and use the hashtags hashtag pink whitney hashtag take your shot. Hashtag sweepstakes will be picking winners from the us and canada every other week. So make sure to get creative. We just submissions. Even those bad boys away soon. Now we're gonna shift their over to the old north division. The canadian division. That's where the big news was last The canadians fired coach. Claude julien was as fifth season. There they lost that shootout so the sense. It was kind of weird to the base of the cage. Won that game over the overruled. That you gotta get. We gotta get into that hornets talk. I think listen. That was a fucking horrible call for a few reasons one. He was battling positioning and he got hidden by the ottawa defender. Okay let's say that you're like no no no. He's got to go the long route. Because that's just as much the defenders ice. Okay fine. i'll meet you there. So then he makes contact with murray. Okay so he hits his right leg now. Most you'd say well. He spun him around well technically he didn't he hit him. And then you could see murray. I believe he ends up using his right leg again. The one that got hit to to make what they do in pre-game skate when they're warming up the so he ends up making the full term. Because you might have thought. I it's just easier to go with the flow and the plays going out towards the blue line soul time to get set so by the time he ends up standing up what was ought to me was he doesn't position has stick to wear his five whole this which was normally as a goal. You you would. You would get sat right to me. It felt like he was being lax days. Cool with it. Some people say wall might have taken a time to track where the puck was because he did the three sixty well. May i remind you. He's the one who went three sixty so he doesn't right away. Put the stick to his five whole well as he tracks the puck. The shot starts coming. He tries to go five. Hold to get it gets it gets tangled up with gallagher skate in the crease. Mind you after. Gallagher had originally got hit and he was down he got back but he got pile monto by another ottawa. Senators guys trying to get out. He was trying to get out so not only the not only the amount of time that burry would have had to get reset but also in my opinion he was colliding with murray because he was essentially pushed by auto bullshit goal which is crazy because then they end up losing that game and if they don't well maybe joint doesn't get fired. Well okay all right well. So i think that that's a valid argument. And what else is going to say. But they said the decision had been made. They said the decision had been made prior that they were going to fire him after that game now. I think this is a good time to bring in. And shoot this over to eric and yeah all angles is a guy. I met when i was working. The trade deadline show one year for sports. He covers a montreal for sports. That so we figured we'd have him on for the first time in chat. What's been going on there. What's the issue with the team and house everyone reacting to the big news. We're gonna shoot over to him now before we do that. Though wet we just want to mention most guys tried lasting longer. Embed different ways they can about baseball doesn't always work baseball season. Trained in spring training started up but the full show biz is afro fledged six love. It actually the folks that roman and online men's health company. I change in the game with roman swipes the secret to long lasting sex roman swiped story clinically proven way to last longer effective easy to use the and fast acting and the best part. They don't require a prescription. Roman can ship swipes too indiscreet unmarked packaging in each swipes. Pack at a small enough to hide your wallet full whenever you needed this super easy to use you just take swipes out a packet. Swipe it on you let it dry on. The web is good too. Good too good to go. That's it baby so go to get roman dot com slash chocolates and get your first month of swipes which is five dollars when you choose a monthly plan. That's get roman dot com slash tickets. And now we're going to send it over to eric angles quickly though is when we were four up through nine and you said this match is going to need a roman ripe. It was one of the funniest things you ever thought. And then i tried to do an advocate after the five minutes. I couldn't even talk. So thank you to roman for sponsoring the sandbag. That was one of the reasons why you guys got to see it and enjoy eric angles. One of the big news last week. Was mario firing coach. Claude julien. so we're going to bring on angles. He's the canadians. Beat reporter for rogers sports net to discuss it tremendous reporter eric. I article is fantastic about shea web. Thanks for joining us pal youth. You guys was this just a classic case of of a team tune out a guy after five seasons like we see all the time in the nhl. Yeah well you know. That's that's what it is in simple terms. I think you know there was a lot of pressure on the canadians before they came into the season. Right they. They made some great additions in the off season. And you see the way those of work out. So far jake allen's towards the top of the standings of any goaltender. that's played it at least five games. Josh anderson has nine goals in his playing like a freight train Tyler toffoli fourth in nhl scoring twelve. Goals you look joel. Edmonson is leading the league at plus eighteen. There was a lot of things that improved about this group and they built on what they had shown in the bubble in terms of their cohesion and knicks zucchini very cockamamie taking steps forward. So the pressure was on. And when you start going into losing streak and the trends continue to be negative and power play in the penalty killer. A problem in the face offs earn issue but more than anything. When you hear someone like shea weber start to say that a heaviness as overtaken the room in the year nick suzuki saying we're too much in our own heads. It becomes clear that you need a new voice. And that was what mark berge made focused on when he said he hired dominic ducharme. He said we needed a new voice. Yes he's been on the bench the last couple of years. But he hasn't had the ability to assert himself in a way that he will now. And we're already seeing some positive changes. Take shape i mean they. They probably could have won that game against the first game was against winnipeg but the goal tending You talk about jake allen but carry prices the story and with one of the biggest capital league goal. And what's going on there and almost in a sense a couple years where. It's a trend of him not playing like he used to. Is there like panic there where we have to continue to start price. Or we're just riding jake allen. But he's the guy that's getting us wins. You know one of the first big decisions that he had to make to sharm was whether he was going to go to price after struggling in a loss to ottawa season long struggles that kind of led him to that point and he did you know that the fact that he gave him that kind of confidence boost that artificial confidence boost. Because you can only gain confidence from within and you guys know that as guys who play before but for your coaches say you know what i know. You've been struggling. But i'm going to give you a chance to redeem yourself. Every player wants that the first chance that he had was the first game against winnipeg on thursday star. It's hard to remember what happened last week. You know price was okay for the first half and then those same struggles were there where he's making great saves than let's in some bad goals in goldie. Lead in to nate thompson was was a goal. That was symptomatic of what's wrong with carey price when he doesn't play well and i've talked to price known price for fourteen years. I've covered entire career. One of the things that he likes to say is that you can't be guessing out there that every fourth liner in the nhl now shoots the way a first liner dies and it was one of the. This came up. Because i once asked them like you know you and dominik hasek would never be compared to each other in terms of the style you guys have but are you able to play the way he did in the sense that like he could show you block and take it away or he could show you five hole and take it away. He said you just. You can't do that anymore. The game played. And if you watch the goal that nate thompson scored on him to put the jets up four three. In thursday's game the puck goes behind the net. He drops to his knees right away. Thompson gets a pass just outside the slot on the side and he's got the bottom of the net covered and yet he lifts up his stick comes off the ice. There's a whole He's guessing and that is not carry price when he's at his best when he's confident in what he's doing you knows exactly where the puck is going. Because he's so positionally sound and so structured in terms of the way his position that nothing requires a guest so now that he had that i stumble. They turned jake allen. He plays very well. A two one loss to winnipeg where they played a much better game. I don't know dominic ducharme speaking as we're taping this right now. I don't know if he's going to reveal his plan. For tuesday's game wouldn't surprise me. Jake allen is in for that one and probably the next time we see carry. Price will be thursday when they play the jets again on going back to last year because of the shutdown and everything that happened were there were some rumors that they are potentially going to do this in the off season now they were planning on heading the playoffs. And of course they ended up getting in and then beaten pittsburgh. Do you think that helped. Julian essentially keep the job to start this season. It had to you know. I think if the season just ended with them in two thousand four th place and they didn't get that chance the nhl players association of play in the postseason than they would have seriously had to contemplate making a coaching change right then because they had to eight game. Losing streaks in another five gamer where the trends just continued to go negative and then didn't reverse the other way so the reason why julia was kept in place and i think rightly so people forget because they solve a kirk. Muller did against philadelphia. It was julia who got them passwords for julia who elevated knicks zouqi to the first line it was gave yes barry cockamamie max dummies role essentially. It was julia. Who jumbled all these cars relied on the youth. He did a lot of things that most people would elect in like. This isn't really closely and this is in his he. He was bowled some both decisions and he deserved the opportunity to continue forward. And he's a stanley cup. Winning coach is an excellent coach. But all coaches have blind spots an ad issues in his just came to roost when when the time came that he lost the shot. I was just gonna follow it up by saying you. Do you think it hurts the organization at the fact that it basically is i to pressured into hiring french coaches where it eliminates a lot of good candidates but you feel that that is the case and it does hurt them in the long run because kirk muller was one name that came up but once again the power play was struggling and he kind of had the reins on that. So what's your feeling on that whole thing. My feeling is it's an exceptionally complicated issue. That's very difficult for people to understand that don't live in. Quebec and montreal is a fifty fifty city in terms of french and english but every other region in quebec is eighty percent french versus english. Now i'm not justifying these decisions there is a i think the canadians are in a place where their owner is french and english. Their general manager is french canadian there. They've got assistant. General manager. marty lapointe french-canadian french canadian players. You know. I think there is a a pressure on them to have a coach that speaks at least in the same language is the people that they can understand what he's saying when he speaks but i think we're also in twenty twenty one where you're in a place where you know. What if it's that big of an issue have an interpreter. Right up there next to him. It's not like everyone. In the media speaks french and english so weakened beacon decipher and translate it. But i just think there is this. If it's the right coach you know it can't just be anyone when when they when they fired Jock martin and randy connie worth took over. It became an issue. It became this political issue. That kind of persisted. The other side of it. Is that like if it was if it was mike. Babcock were gerard gallant. For example you know. Maybe they'd be able to come out and say hey we've got one of the best coaches in hockey. He was available to us behind hired him and they may have even been willing to go that route when they fired michel -tarian but clubs leeann was available as of the week before. And he is. He was one of the best coaches in hockey quebec. Also has a ton of great coaches within this system and if the canadians organization whether it's on their own bench or lower down now that they have an sea l. franchise and also age franchise if they're not using those those areas to develop french-speaking coaches if this is a an important thing for their organization then there than they might as well get away from this to begin with so yeah. You know anyone who saying that it's a handicap for them. It's it's impossible to argue against. You wanna hire the best coach available but they have found some people that are great coaches and i think you guys know a lot about the guys that have been behind the bench and i see this dominic to sharp. It's a short sample. And there's very limited information that we have on how he'll be as an nhl coach of my insight is telling me that he's going to be a really good one whether it's with this team right now or moving folk and you talk about the special teams in along with the goaltending. Be an issue because five on five. They're a good club. I mean edmonson couldn't be plus eighteen if they weren't pushing the pace and controlling the puck five on five. Have you seen any changes immediately to how the power play may be different or the pk. It's like they had the guys where it's like gallagher and front in web shot. It's like their power. Should be so much better. You know you you talk about their power play And we can get into that for me. The biggest one is the penalty. Kill how this team is. Twenty second on the penalty kill with carey price and jake allen and adds with shea weber bench joel edmonson and jeff. Petri outs romanov on defense with a forward group. That includes anderson tyler. Toffoli nick suzuki and philip the no and paul byron artery lake and that to me they should be top. Fire should be their bread butter in the nhl but on the power play. They definitely shouldn't be twentieth. They shouldn't top five. They don't have connor mcdavid. They don't have leon draisaitl. they don't have health. Wise pederson austin matthews or mitch martyr. But they can be better than twentieth and one of the things ducharme talked about was mentality Get the puck back. Beat intense treat it like a situation where you are five on five and be had showed that desperation. Composure is another big one. I think when powerplays are operational and wit. You can definitely speak to this. There is a mentality where it's like. We're not getting off the ice. Where the guys who are going to score this goal like there's no were like it's a competitive thing between both units and there's a feeling like i want the pocket. I'm going to make the difference in that. Mentality needs to take shade. Alex burrows is going to be in charge of that right now and he's got the experience to help in those regards. Let's see what he brings to. I saw some improvements on saturday. But one thing that i saw that i really didn't like if they're gonna use joel army on the power play and you get to looks from foley and suzuki on a on a wing play where they gotta clean rishaad or you get a one timer for weber which is rarely available and he blasted on that you need to be in front of the net and corey. Was there for one. Chance on. Saturday is very cockamamie. Took a shot and it just happened it. Hello bucks glove. But it was a perfect screen and probably a goal or rebound opportunity needs to change on. Denault was one of the names. You mentioned. We talked to mckinnon before the season started. And he said he's one of the best centers that he played against in the league. He's unbelievable shutdown guy. He seems to have been struggling so far this year. What's going on with his game. And why why the struggles. There's a lot of layers to it you know. He started off the year where he said. I'm not ready to just accept the different role and you think about what he did for the last two years for canadian seeing that wasn't very good and honing his reputation as guy. That named mckinnon would say that to you guys about on your podcast like this is a guy that is very good at two ends of the ice and people are focused on the zero goals. So far i like personally. Don't really give a shit about the zero goal. Yes obviously you'd like for him now. Have one or two. I think is max is thirteen. This is a guy can distribute the puck. Well but what. The thing i do care about is the face offs and this is a key face off player and he cannot be set out for the the the defensive zone faceoffs and losing them clean. It's you're gonna get beat by some guys but you can't afford to lose them clean in the defensive zone. That's one aspect for filipino. That he needs to focus on but in terms of why. It's kinda gone a little downhill there. There was the pressure of his role being being reduced a little bit and the of suzuki and cockamamie but there was also he's in a contract year it got leaked out. During the gerald dubois trade scenario possibilities with montreal that denault had turned down a six year. Deal worth five million dollars a year. There's something that that kind of stinks about that whole situation for me. I don't like the fact that it leaked out. Somebody if i'm if i'm filipino. At that specific time while he's trying to find his game it's tough what not helpful for them and the other thing about it is like a look into it by he's represented by newport and on and i know dahmen well enough not particularly my best friend but i know that if a five or six year deal worth five million dollars comes across the table. I'm pretty sure his next move is not hanging up the phone and saying no deal It's normally you'd have a deal done within about six minutes But i don't know if it was a maker like i'll take it or leave. It offer without trade protection at all the different elements come in. One thing i do know is that filled annot had built himself. That profile and john gabrielle's has the all right now. I could see essentially the same deal rumored that he's turned down. He is actually be coming into. The season built that case to have a contract. That was better than that pandemic adjusted. We talked about something different. I'm just saying like there's something more to that. That needs to be fleshed out and i'll do my best to do that but at the same time like. That's a tough situation for any player. But right now he needs to put that all aside is being given a chance to play with gallagher and tatar. Who had great success with and she needs to rise to the occasion and play better because he's an important player for this team. I look at a young town. Well i look at montreal. And i think They made the calculated move. They don't have a true scoring stud but they have depth where all their lines can still can score. But you look back to the draft and you look younger players and talk to me. I mean third overall two thousand eighteen and after him. It's like brady chuck. Quinn hughes. Even farabi in philly was available. And you haven't necessarily seen what i think. Any canadians fans hoped when when they have top three selection. Is that still there. Is that possibility where you're looking at a point per game player or is it too early for you to even kinda judge where the rest of his career may go. It's a great question and a relevant question. Because obviously you need that. Pick to hit quick the thing about just very cockamamie is a couple things here i. He started off. His career is the youngest player in the nhl. Eighteen years old and yet the canadians just didn't have anyone center. Desperately needed him there and he didn't just earn a bye here like he. He earned his way onto the team. He he really played great nat training camp and found his way at thirty four points as the youngest player in the nhl a in in a sheltered role playing only thirteen and a half minutes. A game it tells you the potentials there last year went through some classic struggles for a player who was elevated pretty quickly into the nhl and as of right now At twenty years old. There's maybe as in the nhl that are older that are younger than him. So that's one factor. The other factor is you can look back in hindsight and look at that draft and say what are they doing picking cock the emmy third overall when he was probably gonna go sixth or seventh or maybe even as far as tenth like the canadians had two and a half decades worth of just a barren center ice position if they don't get the best center ice -ment available in the draft. That's what we're talking about today. Because mark burs spent eight years or nine now talking about fact you can't trade for them. They never become available. You can't sign them in free agency because they never teams. never let them go dubois. I understand he became available but that was a really unique circumstance. Who knows where it goes. Which in buffalo. we'll see. But now they've got suzuki and cockamamie. And i love brady could shocking. Everyone news going to be a good player. But i'll tell you going back to that draft. The canadians had arizona behind them at five. They knew that arizona wanted a center. They ended up taking barrett aidan I think they would have taken this very cami. If he was available at five they couldn't really trade down out of the position and they made the choice. we're going to get a centerman with the third overall. Pick because we need one and you bring up berge even in its eight years and i mean i dunno possessively fair to ask you or you wanna say but i'd have to think personally if they don't get in the playoffs this year. He's probably gone. And i would have to agree. And i think you look at the moves that have been made here and it's clear that that's on his mind and might not even be that they'd be looking to fire him. It might be that he might say you know what. I'm going to step aside. I know that he loves the job in. Doesn't wanna do that. But i also know that the pressure is on for them to perform right now and i'll say this we all had. I'm sure you three had the same opinion that i do before the season happened with was that he had he knocked it out of the park. Gallons did a good job information. We all know that. And i mentioned it off the top here what those guys have done so far. But it's a team you gotta bring everything together. You have to make decisions at the right time and if it doesn't work out if the canadians missed the playoffs this year. It's it's probably time for a new direction. And i would think that's a big part of the reason why dominant disarm has an interim tag as head coach. You know if if potentially you can have a new gm because it didn't work and you couldn't turn it around. You'd want that guy to sign his own coach or decide on his own if you wanna extend ducharme so there's a lot going on here but i don't think berge remains under any illusions about what's at stake a season do you think was it Was it probably going to be him. Who would have gotten the job if if it if it had happened after The regular season last year. 'cause it seemed like berge ovens very confident in this guy and he seems seems to be he was going to be the guy. That's a really hard question to answer. But i'll say this Berge man could say quarantine or not. Ducharme is my guy and he should say that because he's made him the coach. His future is directly tied to this coach. He believes in the coach. And i think he's absolutely genuine when he says he's on percent my guy and i believe in him but we also know there was major constraints and being able to bring in a coach from outside if you bring them in two weeks before you fire juliet. Good luck keeping that under wraps that's gonna get out somewhere whether internally or externally if you bring him in an urgent situation where you've lost that number of row and you need to turn the tide and ramco chen. He's got a quarantine for two weeks. Having an exhaustive search outside of the organization in the middle of what's going on in the season is virtually impossible. But i do believe that. Mark berman believes the arms a good coach and i would say this in the very short time that to sharm has been here in position. I think burs may be really reassured about a number of elements from what he's trying to tweet In terms of the strategy but also in terms of how common collected he is with a media. That is not a vicious meteoroid. Anything like that. But we're well in tune with what's going on and we're asking hard questions and questions. That are not easy to just navigate your first time in that position. The pressure of montreal. There's a tornado fresh going on around him and he is handling extremely well. And if i was mark berge may. I would be really reassured by that. While we're we're super. It should to see how this plays out. And i take a long time coming. You you join the pod. Great job on the webinar close. You mentioned in all your coverage of the canadian. So i right away backtrack from me saying they weren't gonna make the playoffs now. I'm like wait a minute. I don't know what's going on but it's going to be a fun story to kind of watch over the next few months so thanks for joining us at the risk of putting myself on the line here. I'm i'm confident that they will. I think we'll turn this around And then if they don't we can we can make fun of me for for however long guys want if they don't that's a pastime of arson think anyone that comes on the show so we have we appreciate it. Thanks guys thanks eric. Thank you very much eric. Angles will be chat with him again in the future. No doubt i mean personally it was like it was a little surprising and i think mainly because you saw the start that they had and i didn't quite realize how bad it had gotten for a little while they're trying to fall the whole league so he's still you see him fired. You're a little surprised but then you hear angles explain it and you really do hear him say that. Berge vince. pretty much reliant on this year and that could be it so if he's not in the playoffs he's at he's kind of ditching. He knows his last effort. He's gonna find a coach that he thinks can get this thing switch around because like angles also mentioned shea weber saying like it's just so negative around here that's that's kind of shocking to see. That's when you probably know all right time to make a change show to jeff petri. We didn't even bring him up. i think he's fourth league scoring. I've brought his name autonomous. But he's he's had a great season for them so the guy who covers most things they can turn around and we'll be in the playoffs. What do you got. I just i get. I mean hearing that of course takes me off the fact that if they win that game maybe six around than you said that they'd already had the decision made but it's obvious that there's there's just a few things that need to be turned on. I mean we believe kerry price can turn that switch on. i think that ultimately it's special teams will figure themselves out. You mentioned the five on five numbers like there. There's out they got a solid team and if they just turn a few those nozzles either going to be okay. We're going back to the gallagher thing. I thought one of the interesting comments after the game was he thinks that most video review has spacey. Ruin the game and it down and in situations like that. Maybe i agree completely. There's too much overthinking going on in a sense. That's that's a little hypocritical for me to say mr fuck and not even known if starting at half the time but as far as the firing would you guys thank like i mean. Do you think well deserved. I mean we were shocked. I think when we had the texture of the next just because it seems to come out of nowhere in a game that basically the canadians won. I got screwed on that call. I'm curious what's going to be next for clothing. I mean he's going to be sixty one he he kind of defensive style with league is kind of going a little bit more up temple. I'm sure he'll have a job view on. But i'm curious to see you know if a team's going to bring him in if if they're gonna wanna guy with a defensive approach if that's gonna work because chitwood won't he got hired. We started the show and we were questioned. He was the right guy for the job and not that he was a failure by any means. I mean he's six years old plays that style. it just didn't mesh well for whatever reason. So i'm curious to see cloud we're going to get dale. We saw because he was firing off on twitter. He was saying well. I bet that they get a lot less too many men penalty so apparently he forgets to call the lines out. I've played with coaches for coaches like that before too up. I think god barry trotz is like that to where they get so focused on watching the play and how how the game you know how. It's all transpiring to where you know. Part of it is trying to remember to match up and call i so he. That's one of the things that i i was reading on on twitter last couple of days. Y'all is an interesting little thing he put out. He's pretty funny. Let's wait to get him on the show. But i was mark spector tweeted out like what other job with his dog post odds on who's going to get fired next and they had a list of names i mean would just put out the travis green three to one next to get fired hines four two one win six one i mean. Dj smith not get fight. I don't know why he's on there at seven one. But they didn't have jeff wireless 'cause i send out a tweet the other night. Who's going to be the next coach to get shit camden. I think it was overwhelming a lot of flames fans. Would it be rude for us to like throwing her picks. No i mean i. It sucks to get five. But i think people need to remember these guys. They'll get paid when they fired. So while it sucks assists. The next paid vacation i would. I would guess hines that would be my pick. They have been a little bit better over the last couple of games. Yeah national step. That up a little. But i guess if you're the owner nashville. Okay now if poile brought in tignes and it's not working out there you're gonna take a look poiline always cop one more. Are you going to do a parlay are you gonna. Is this a bar stool book. Em coach polly sports sportsbook. No i mean. I would have sick odds i think if you're the owner and you look at his last higher it's like okay this. If hines at work out. I mean they might turn it around here. But if they don't as you're going to look at previous higher and say this is working out and i mean again pls. Record is what it is. But i don't think maybe maybe think of if you're the guy i don't know man that's so hard i don't read them again travis green now i don't clean hines. Dodds david david quinn. Dj smith he's not going away. Ablaze blaisdell bugno talk it bowness eakins crew and like i said they didn't have jeff ward listed as so i would not one more coach gets fired during the this season this year. I'll tell you what action. No way i think i think john heinz gets fired and one other aspect to angles brought up the fact that there might be a quarantine process that has to happen right so they may be factoring that in saying it's a shortened season. Let's fuck in. Let's just get alive. I didn't pick anyone. I i know john heinz. Well i mean. I guess it looks like he would probably be the next one. I really hope it doesn't happen to him. Though i've known him since i was like fourteen years old. So he's a great guy. Does i mean. I know you mentioned they get paid. You still wondering like am. I going to get a chance again. So there's there's some there's some probably panic for those yeah. We're not rooting for anybody. Lose their job here but you know it is something dog yup absolutely but i'll take a look at the rest of the division men winnipeg is like quietly consistently people aren't really talk about them. Connor box plan out of his mind. Taking a look at it wherever they the division twenty-seven points. I gotta give a little love to the jets. I think especially like i said. Hello buck yeah i mean. Everybody was criticizing their back. End going and where and but you know. I think they've heloc mate might be cleaning up a lot of that mess but ultimately yeah. They've looked really good. They've kind of tried to. I mean i think everyone's after edmonton's run here. And i think it was at one point eleven and two in their last thirteen. I don't know exactly but they obviously have picked it up and it's like them in. Toronto have started making the steps to kind of pull away while winnipeg's right there and everyone else if you look they got chase them down now and i know much only played. Twenty games in winnipeg still has a chance to make up ground but helluva creates like a team. Where are they know. They're going to score. They have enough talent front. Like healers looks awesome. I've always actually loved watching him play. His style plays like he's he's going so fast and every shift. It seems like he's given it like there's not really much laid back like he was almost the opposite of line. Where you're just like some nights. There's nothing there healers every night. I think fans love that guy and then like the talent of shy flee and all that but when you have a goal he was playing. There's so much mental. There's so many different parts of the game mentally as a defenseman worth. If you know that there's probably going to be a big save. Made it just loosens you up like makes you feel at ease when you're on the ice and snow where you can throw a couple pizzas. Listen i don't want to throw a pizza. But if i do i could bailed out here so i think that they're going to be there all year. I think they're going to be competing. And that's a place. That i mean i know fans is like so far from now. I think but with their barn going. It's like i wish that was the case. Because i love i love their whole fan fan base and i really hope they do well this year. They're fun team to watch. I think maybe the funniest highlight from that division. All week calgary. Going david riddick headbutting. Milwall gus for the redskins quarterback break his neck. I had buttered the wall. After a touchdown dislocated his neck category in the angeles footsie. That didn't happen to riddick but unless goalie had bought a wally dep is i. I'm sure it happens every week. In the cage l. meaning can almost headbutting. If i guess it just happened so much. They don't even bother releasing the footage. But i tell you man. There's there's been a few times in my career where the wires of crossed i. I'm pretty sure headbutted shit up. Pretty sure i've punched a few walls and faulk man that that's that's especially playing in the canadian market. That's the type of built up shit that you deal with. I mean you're constantly in the media. The team hasn't necessarily been playing that great. Although i don't think goaltending necessarily been the issue. Yeah the fucking wires cross what do you. What are you gonna say. Read that team right now. Like they they got blown up by edmund tin seventy four or five games ago then. They beat toronto and then they lost in overtime. It's like all right. That's a pretty big step back after embarrassing display and then they get blown out again. Six months i it's like oh my god. So yeah i guess. Ward and gin calgary put his name up there. Because i don't understand it. I mean they made changes this summer. Like goudreau's look good. It's just so odd marks from head times. He looks off at the beginning. I mean like in the way. That team was pl
