"I. I quickly got up and scarf. Apple crumble my friend. The Best Go to 'cause where I live. The closest restaurant is Broadway in riverside south, and they got a patio there. That's quite nice and out of the Blue I never order apple crumble, even though I always like it when I have it, and they brought one with one of those giant plates, apple crumble massive couple of Scoops Vanilla, ice, cream, and then caramel sauce, hot sauce dangled all over top of it. It was the best desert I've had in a long time. Yeah, yeah, that was. That's my go to you and I got a lot in common their parts. That was and when I was a kid got me thinking you know. About we like my mother Fed us. She five kids going at once here and so meals were like. Throwing stuff together, roast beef dinner in on Sunday nights that lasted until Thursday rose Yorkshire Pudding. No not yards, but the mashed okay, always always the veg. And then this thing would the next day it would be roast beef sandwiches to got. It got sort of a little less. Good Steve over the rest of the week. My mom had all sorts of designs. Roast beef sandwiches and then. Cold. then. It was hot, hot beef. Sandwich Steve Okay with the Gravy, not bad okay, and then on the Wednesday. Stephen would be cold roast beef with some ketchup. Okay, Is this ever going to run out. Okay is she should have invested A. She should have invested in one of those swarm wheels, where you could just have this big spoonful of meat, and just keeps sawing off over the course of the week. Yeah. But yeah, no choice then stevie right. You just sat down in front of you. Know like today I remember ru being with my kids when they were growing up everyone to have a different fricking meal. He gets Katie. But the big feature steep. So we would have deserved my Gel Jello all the time. Okay, okay here we go with the Jello, okay? The Little Gel packs that everyone made. Grew up on that sure, but every once in a while Steve Way left field way out of left field. My mom would come in. You'd think. FUCKING JELLO Rice crispy squares. Oh Man. Big, big deal Stevie when I was a kid. With the Rice crispy squares well I liked they come with. The store bought ones right now. The the rice krispies. The actual serial makes rice crispy squares. Now. When we were kids, it was just so. Well I know, but you could just rolling and I are calling each other on crap. We say I'm going to interrupt the show, but twenty times anyway. The point is there in these. These blue tin foil things it's like, are they? Under the impression that I only want one rice krispies square like you'd sit down and have like about eight every time. At least I did we got to you got. To remember when you said when you just could not just roll with it, please. Jim Kenyon. Did See Yeah I. Remember some talking about. Yeah, so I remember. When you and I I work together on walkie road, so you're back in two thousand, ninety, nine or something when we. When we hooked up stealing the love, affair started about two thousand eight from two thousand. Yeah and. I think you were in there at the time. Maybe not and now just before you came because like my first week in radio. No idea what I was doing and. The host of the show was jared then was the host of the show. Left Jeff Franklin Jeff Co coming out a going into commercial said when we come back, we gotta talk about the basketball match. Okay, and he was trying to go to break and I said hang on before we go to break. Okay, no, not a basketball match. Okay is a game basketball tennis match Stevie I'm telling him a chess match. But but no, you can't use that expression. Okay? This was on air and goes okay. We'll be right back. We go to break really. Really you have to point out my mistakes all the talk. Not can not just let it fucking slide once in awhile. Back because commands coming back at you. It's. I just remember that good. We don't do that here, okay? We don't bury the other guy on the fucking shit. Awhile. Just let her role. So we got on that. Are you done with the desert topic? 'cause I was digging into the deserts. Here I'm thinking greatest deserts of all time in my opinion, oh and I got thinking. Boy Cherry cheesecake would be the discussion cheesecake of any kind. Really Bury. We'll be right very solid. Yeah, there's not this hardest blueberry. There's one of those turtles. They took all the great virtues of the Candy Turtles and and somehow incorporated it into a cheesecake right Soviet, but my mom, who made made these peanut butter squares that were phenomenal. They had corn flakes, Rice krispies. They some kind of syrup in them as well and I. Don't know what some other sugary guru in there as well and. They were phenomenal. I'm going to make some of those haven't had though since I was a kid. That's a great idea, Stevie! That's a great idea i. make these score desserts Stevie homemade score bars with saltines. But the SALTINES. Good I used to bring it into work once in a while. Give all the lead these. Sweet. Baby one day to Stevie. Chicken Curry crepes. Strong Jimmy. Chicken Curry crepes is three things I didn't think would ever go together. For sure. So good, so I did have chicken and waffles quite a bit over the last couple of years never thought initially they'd go together, but they they do. Chicken and waffles. I every pub has those. Putting Syrup on your chicken, are you? Oh, yeah, Fried Chicken waffle. Syrup goes with everything. The fucking grossest thing I've ever heard come on chicken and waffles. Only God. This placenta and waffles. Grossest thing that popped into my mind at the moment. It's got to be grocer, right? It's a terrible dessert. Well, you just don't put a waffle with that. That's. GonNa Straight. What the Hell Mad! Come on! Who will never put that Combo together waffle? No. And it's really is feeling like the last podcast of our podcast week and these time for a weekend.

"But it wasn't who I was as a person big difference and I think with good people around you to remind you of what's possible outside the game you eventually intially realize that you do something that you love. And it's most amazing time of your life but it's not going to define you in the end and I think those two things became very apparent to me. You know sometime in the middle of my career where there's just more to this than playing hockey and that's where it became so apparent that you are an important part of any community that you play in and there are the things that are going on in the way you conduct yourself and how you give back and all. The things are so important to to a professional athlete in order for him to do. And I think those are things that really kind of separate you from the player and so when it's time to retire. Yeah sure I miss game love playing hockey. There's nothing better than playing hockey and being a part of a team but I was able to walk away because I had a new family and there was more to do in life in a different way that alleviates that need to go to the rink every day. And have your ego boosted because of your plan on a professional hockey team. So I think that kind of really Made it easy for me to retire into Kinda go onto the next phase in my life when at forty some years old now look if I was twenty five years old and forced to retire because of injury or something that would have been tough to retire. No no question no question so. I'm only speaking for myself that I was. I fulfilled everything you know for twenty six years pro forty four. A young family in my own mind was there anything left to prove. You know from hockey standpoint. No was is a lot more to prove from a top exam point. There's a lot more tomato tomase mark you still keep in touch with any of the guys from Edmonton I everybody everybody yeah we just had another reunion Edmonton not long ago. We had one here in New York. And what's amazing using about The city is at everybody seems to come through here at one point during the year so being able to stay connected to a large portion of the guys on a Fairly regular basis is is quite easy. I would love to be a fly on the wall for one of those reunions literally just sitting up there in a raft or watching like take the greatest hockey team that ever laced up reminiscing about. Gosh what it's been now. Thirty to thirty five years. Eighty five team was voted the top up team and the last one hundred years and so we had a reunion for that team in Edmonton not long ago and it was remarkable actually to get get that team together and see everybody that some of the guys I hadn't seen again I had but just to be able to get to your point yet get to the room and everybody somebody Sat in exact same seats on the bus on the way to the ring. It was it was. Did you guys get on the ice and skate. We never did that would have been. We should have done that. Actually we should have had some kind of it. Just came at Gimmick quick pickup or something like we should have been with both Andy and grant there you go yeah. The whole team was unbelievable. Was Amazing actually. We should have done that. I'll remember that for the next one. You know I got to meet Ronnie Lott recently. Who is one of my favorite football players ever growing up and we were after shooting? The breeze forbid I said do you guys ever get together and play a game of pickup football you in Montana rice and everybody goes. Yeah Yeah we did it actually Kinda recently and I said what was it like and he goes. It was awful. I mean I hurt for like three days. After he's like Jerry was the only one who is really really in still still in amazing shape which of course if you look a lot by the way he looks just like you. He is exact same weight that he played at. So it's not like this guy. Got Out of shape. But he's like look. Jerry was still sort so you know really in shape but but it's the same idea like to get that forty niners team of the eighties together in the orders of the eighties. I mean I don't know there's something there's something very special about those later. The connection is so strong because you have such deep respect for what you did together and the commitment that each individual put Ford's towards the common goal I think that's where the Gratitude comes in. Do you think that it's just impossible to ever reproduce that again again in the sense that like has money changed that I mean back in the eighties. You guys just didn't get paid a fraction of what players get today. Do you think that his joiners again in order to win you gotta get there somehow or another team has a shorter window to do it to bring it all together but they have to get there on an emotional level in order to win. Saint Louis did this year. The you look at them just before Christmas. They weren't even in the playoffs. Yeah kind of amazing turnaround easing Turner but somehow or another they were able to you emotionally connect on a much deeper level than they had ever in the past. And it's without that so yeah I think think the principles of winning are the same. You got a much shorter window to do. It becomes and goes for some organizations where they don't quite get there but any team that actually wins. What will tell tell you there that the team connected in a way that they didn't probably feel possible at some point prior notwithstanding that your kids are still at a point where you don't want to be away from home but fast forward a few years your kids Rollin? College or doing their own thing would you want to coach in the NHL. It's hard to say I Obviously feel like I have a lot to offer any organization any team because of my experiences that would lend itself well to any party organization. Coaching is something that I enjoy in. I don't think there's a big difference Philosophy speaking coaching a a sixteen year old team than coaching in. NHL Team because you do have to communicate the bench awareness the things that come come naturally to someone that coaches and and it doesn't come naturally to everybody it doesn't I recognize that I do have a unique ability to coach and I think I get it from my father and and to communicate so it'll be interesting to see if that ever happens day and last question. Sort of out of your purview. But we'll Toronto ever win the Stanley. A I'm asking seriously do I would think so. You know the toughest part about the R.. Game is such a tough league but the good news news is that you can see a team like saint. Louis bring it together in a short period of time. I mean they obviously had the pieces. They couldn't have wanted they. We didn't have the pieces in order to do it but somehow or another. They are able to galvanize which in a way that they hadn't previously and so when you look at the turnaround of teams that have gone on to win the Stanley Cup. In the last ten years look at L. A.. You know what is finishing eighth and win the Stanley Stanley Cup. The League structured now that every team has weaknesses. There's no perfect team right now. Every team has to decide where they're going to put their strengths and and absorbed the weaknesses because the salary cap era and what it does is it lends itself to a very competitive environment where it's a tough league and but it also gives it was a lot of teams a lot of hope that it can win and I think it's good for the fans is good for the League is good for the players is good for organizations it's going to be hard for someone to dominate innate. Perhaps like we did in the eighties or something like that but to answer your question. I believe the Toronto Maple leafs are going to with the nucleus. They have the right now they should be able to get it done and it's now probably longer than the Rangers drought. Because wasn't the leafs last cup in sixty seven sixty sixty seven so What are we working on now? Yeah so you're that's law. That's that's actually that is now longer than the Rangers for years is a long time long long long time but I love the leafs now. This is not quite literally yet another couple years but I think it's funny grown up in Toronto. I never liked the leaves. Because I just think this sort of that Harold Ballard Arrow was so bad and I mean we would go to the gardens but you're going to watch other teams. They were coming. I mean every time the oilers played including exhibition games. I I was sitting up in those crappy gray seats to watch a game but now I'm always amazed when I'm back in Toronto. Just what an ordeal. It is to get to the air. Canada CETACEA game. I mean it's got to be one of the toughest towns to get tickets. I just know coming to New York and original sixteen and the passion behind the generations of fans. That were here. It didn't take me long understand the gravity of it and if and when I say I love the leafs I love the least because of that same. Original six teams are named the history. The the the passion the heartbreak all the things that go into an organization that make it so compelling to go to the game to cheer the leafs on if you're a leaf fan and even if you're not only fan you still got a respect where they've been and where they've come from. And and the way that organization is moved into the modern era and this juggernaut organization that is just so compelling if they win this year. I've done the math now. It'll be fifty three years if they win this year. So they've got one they've got two years left to say. Fifty four is a long long time but the working on it so hopefully flitting get it done sooner or later. It'd be nice to see a Canadian team getting there but oh yeah for sure. It won't be. I can guarantee you won't be given to them. The park has been awesome. Thank you so much for all these insights you know. First Time we met. I remember you never know when you're a kid you know you meet you meet your boyhood heroes as you sort of you just never know. Can they live up to the poster on your wall. Can they live up to that time. You got that autograph. Then you've got to stand in front of them for three point seven seconds while he scribbled something on your hockey stick or whatever it's been a pleasure getting to know you and I think that this podcast I think is is just hopefully a great way for folks to get to really understand your style of leadership which is certainly not about boasting about just sort of a a quiet passionate yet. Highly intuitive and introspective form of leadership. That I I don't know I guess I'm biased. But I don't think we see a lot of that in sports anymore if nothing else. I'm highly appreciative of it. When I know that others will be also thank you great being on great talk in hockey as always in.

"It doesn't have to be anything like I did when I was in the three hours in the gym. And all that. But if it's twenty minutes of Cardio or it's a anything a yoga session or so. I'm kind of resigned to the fact that if anybody's doing anything I'll kind of jumping on it and try it and obviously got a little bit of a routine to three or four days a week. But I'll try anything do anything and just to keep the body movement. How often do you get back on skates plan? Some charity events every once in a while. I'm on the ice quite a bit because I coach my son's team so I'm on the ice I use actually Friends rank up in wire mill. Paul Orland the Great Guy. He's got a little private rink there. So I go there and just do some cardio. You'll just get other unscathed. I'll just get up there and and just do skating exercises because it just so good for your core and for your and you don't have the impact and you don't have the impact of running and all that right and so it's just so much development of your core in your legs and all that so keep that strong. How fast can you skate? Relative to your twenty eight year old self what percent sent will what you realize is that you have such massive leg power when you're playing and when you stop that atrophies pretty quickly so if I had to say put a percentage on it. Yeah I'm curious as to how far you would fall in twenty years I would say I have ten percent would ahead way ten percent less no overall. You're that far from over. You're twenty years ago I would. I would say so but my guess is if you still. I'm still in good shape. I can still skate. But if if you get back on the ice with a bunch of forty year old dudes I bet you skate. Circles around them right depends on what you're skating. I mean if I if I took six months and skated skated in started to develop some of the muscles that you really need the skate and freer edging and all that. Yeah may maybe but you know. I'm fifty eight so you know it just atrophy unless you skate every day those muscles atrophy. You know you're growing is in your hip. Lectures your quads and Ham. I mean that whole muscle group group of of your legs and so that's just straight away speed skating around circles. What about the ability to change direction is that even more lost? Is that even though some laws because you instantly they become fatigued with because you don't have the muscle power there so it's just it's amazing actually. In fact it wasn't. It was about two years after I retired and I put my equipment Whitman to do something and I felt like I didn't have my. I felt like you were wearing someone else's equipment because my legs were about twice the size and my pants fit different and all of a sudden my legs were in the pants that I had retired with and it felt like they were just swimming on me just because of the of the atrophy. What do you weigh now? Now we about to fifteen which is not that far from what you play later. era to fifteen. or so. Just distribute it. Just you just don't have the muscle. Mass awesome you lose muscle mass just because of age but you also you'd lose must never not years. Well I mean you can't just a the Ma- mazing how much power it takes to play hockey from a legs eggs standpoint and a and a cardiovascular standpoint. It's incredible in you know when you do it from the time you're young boy till the time you're forty something and you retire you. You don't even think about it because on the ice and not even think about it. What is your son? Think about hockey the one that you coach. He's how will will lines through the older boys thirty two and he's Khotan. He loves hockey at. T's made a career of coaching kids in up in Washington. D little caps Douglas Loves Hockey's sixteen playing midget hockey hockey. And that's the one you coach. Yeah Yeah does he WANNA play pro. I think you'll love the play pro. Is it hard. How do you feel about letting him be his own guy? Oh I think he needs completely needs to go on that journey of self exploration to see what he can extract them himself to see. Ask You about it We talk often about hockey. I think he knows what's required even before whether or not you have the talent. It's an interesting journey for him to see where he can take it ultimately that will be defined by him and not by me. It's gotTa be interesting. It's got to be a mixed bag of emotions for for you to watch your watch. Your kids play this game and know that I you know I know enough about you to know that all you really care about. Is You just want your kids to be happy you want. Your kids is to sort of find their own way and you WANNA stay out of their way enough but also be there enough to answer a question and support amendment. It's just I think it just harder. When Your Dad Atas Mark Messier to Balance Your Dad was such an important part of your development? Is it sort of like you wanna be able to provide exactly what your dad did. No more no less. That sort of how you thought about being a son of any professional player in any sport is gonNA come with some baggage for the kids whether they feel it as they're expected to be a great player because her dad was and and all the things that go along with it ultimately the reason why sports in my opinion is such a great thing for all kids is it. It does take you on that self journey of self awareness in what you WanNa do and are able to do and are able to put the discipline in the time in. That's required a to be the best you can be. It doesn't matter how good everybody else's what do you have. and Are you willing to extract every ounce of talent talent and work out of your own body that ultimately no matter how far you take it will serve you well in wherever you land whether it's in a sport or in business or whatever that kind of journey can only be beneficial for for all kids and certainly for for my kids as well and I think there's something else about team sports which is all the stuff you've alluded to around this type of leadership and the difference between I was loved that movie miracle to the thought that it's such a great job of love showing how at an individual level. That team was not nearly as talented as the Soviets right but on that one moment in that tournament everything everything that they had done under her brooke sort of came together and they outplayed the best team on in the world as a team not as a collection of individuals else. And so much of what you talk about is really. You repeatedly emphasized this importance of of both leadership team play and the dynamics of the team and again I think you've you've paid a lot of that tribute both to your dad into Gretzky as being too great role models of that and many more but yeah. There's there's a lot of information mation out there for for any young aspiring sportsman sportswoman girl boy. No matter what their dance music acting hockey baseball football whatever. It is if you're interested. There's a lot to learn if you're interested Tummy put the Mark Messier Foundation. What do you guys do well? When Chris came to New York it was really important for me to entrench myself into the community? The first charter ever got involved with was the Albert Lung Association when I became a pro in In Evanston in Glen say there are codes air. Really Kinda emphasize that we'd get out into the community and pick a charity and attach your name to it and help help. The Alberto Lung. Association was an incredible learning experience for me. Because it's all about the babies that were born premature and had unhealthy lungs and whatnot fast forward to come into New York. The inundation of requests to get involved with some kind of charity in the city was overwhelming so I they had to figure out a charity involve myself with and then held as much as I could everywhere else and that became the Tomorrows Children's Fund at the hackensack medical. The university and years after retirement it became apparent that I could start my own foundation and really kind of focused on the things that inspired me. The most net was giving back to providing access and opportunity to kids. That didn't have the means to do it. Like hockey in the city so the mark missy foundation is basically that it's about creating access and opportunity in different areas. Aries of kids lives there that they would never have had the opportunity. Otherwise for different circumstances whether it's financial or infrastructure not available or in school aspects or whatever. So that's what we're focused on. And it spun out of the Kingsbridge nationalist project that we're trying to build here in the city that that would provide provide a lot more access and opportunity to kids to play hockey in the metropolitan area here with three. NHL Teams you. You'd think we could do a better job of the creating more access for kids to play sport that so much entrenched into this metropolitan area. It's hard to imagine you not living here isn't it. You have so many tentacles in this in this New York Area Business Wise Philanthropy wise family wise which is again I for me I always think of you as being from Edmonton which of course you are from but if probably lived almost as much of your life here as you have their right yeah well. Let's close. I came here when I was just thirty. And I'm fifty eight now so would spin a you know I I remember my first press conference saying they hoped my second occurs. This gives my first. We're able to win as many championships here in New York Eric. But we're able to win the one but my experience here in New York has been incredible. I think the thing that really drew me to come to new. York was not only the challenge of Reagan. The fifty four year world drought of the Stanley Cup. Also immersing myself into a city of this magnitude and and the culture and all the things that go along with it that was very appealing to to me and it didn't disappoint me in any way. I've can't tell you how much I've enjoyed my time as a player in in retirement in this area area and the people and the amount of experience that I've had with so many different types of people in the city it's interesting I mean last thing I really WanNa talk about mark. Is this idea. Where are there just seemed to be two types of athletes? There are those who retire. Who can never sort of get over the fact that they're not still all twenty eight years old and that their glory is no longer going to be wed to that and then there were another group of athletes who retire and move on an and continue to like live life to the fullest with respect to whatever the next chapters of their lives fit in your obviously the latter category? I mean we could have in a whole other podcast talking about what you're doing in business today and all the things you're doing outside of hockey do you have a sense of why you're able to make that transition and when it was time to say goodbye you said goodbye and you know your identity doesn't have to be wrapped up in that And why others have such a difficult time doing that. What what do you think defines I think you just nailed it. I think to put a very quickly. I think the the thing is. I didn't identify myself only as a hockey player. I think that in order for me to be able to do that I needed to good family around me and good people around you to remind you that. There's a lot more to life than hockey. Although it's a huge part of my life from the time I was very young to the time I turned pro in his one of the things that I had to really focus in on when I was eighteen. Because it requires all your attention to perform at your highest level. But it wasn't who I was as a person big difference and I think with good people around you to remind you of what's possible.

"What you're trying to achieve in a lot of that comes comes from the preparation and the commitment that you put into the game so there's been a lot of questionable moments long twenty six years where you doubt yourself and remember standing on my First Cup final along the Blue Line in Edmonton and being so amped up that when the anthem finished by whole right side I got blurry and I played about twenty seconds of the first shift and then went off to the restroom ahead lay on the training room table for five minutes in in order to just get vision back. Whatever happened just way too amped up way too ready to go away? Too excited in. That was a great lesson as well because when I looked over at the islanders they were just kind of in the Nice groove a nice relaxed state. And so how do you marry that with into much not enough in debt. Perfect sublime state. And then of course a lot of philosophy and some of the things that I worked on in my career from self-awareness standpoint. And things like that. Say a bit more about that. You live a different life than most people can relate to right. I mean most people finished high school. Get a job or go to college or whatever but you were sort of thrust into a limelight. From very young age you had to make a bunch of mistakes aches in front of a bunch of people and and before you know it. You're you're sort of forty four years old or whatever you were forty three when you retired I wanNA talk a little bit more more about retirement and the next phase of your life but I want to know a little bit about how you like. What kind of introspection and self reflection were you able to do as is an athlete or was that mostly something that came after? No I think it wasn't a evolution all the way through I became curious wife to start with why Wayne what's the best hockey player in the world. And so I started watching him. I started watching him in practice in this practice habits and what. He didn't practice to become a better player and how he was Zabell saucer. The puck on his forehand backhand where he would go in certain situations. And all that and then I still if you're curious enough. There's a lot of answers out there how to become. I'm a better player. Both physically and emotionally and tactically. And all the things that you would you. Don't Rep your the way you represent yourself. You're just an average guy right like you're not a a guy who had this God given gift now of course you obviously have great natural athletic talent. But you're this guy who is as you tell the story. No one could have predicted on your first day in the NHL. You are going to be the second leading scorer of all time or the first amongst mortals. They were as in the case of Gretzky if someone said that on day one. It was believable. It was more evidence. And that's why it's so amazing that your patient with in certain things that you look for in an avenue any sport not necessarily when they're younger but in how they can change in evolve so it would have been no evidence Linson until I even turn pro that that would have happened so I think that yes you are given God given talent it has to be nurtured and honed and then you have to be willing to absorb a lot information nor to become a good pro and a good teammate. And then you know how to elevate elevate your own game from a fourth line fighter to a second line left winger to a second line Centerman to a first line sentiment through the course of career rate like but yes I think curiosity one and I felt that there was a way that I didn't believe in his own Say More about that. I didn't and believe in that it was just by chance at a guy would have a good game. You would hear these people talking about. Wow is really an zone tonight. I don't know why and what happened. Couldn't feel my legs. I could skate all day. Never got tired. The the goal look like a soccer net. You know didn't feel like anybody else's on. Oh you know you never once felt that I felt it but I didn't think it was just because it just was interesting. It was just a chance. You think that's happened along the way in order for that to manifest itself at that particular time so I started asking questions about you know okay. Well what is that. I mean what there's there's a bigger so what is the hager. What is your take while? I think it's a level of concentration net doesn't get discovered you know it's a whole nother. That's another whole nother podcast. But I just think it's a it's a deep level of concentration that you're not even aware of that's mixed with preparation. That's with mixed with belief chief that's mixed with repetition of the skill all that comes together as certain time and I think that in and to distant very quickly distinct that in a in a professional world. There's a lot of external things that go on outside the game that can be conflicting flitting and be distracting and take away energies from you not only physically but also emotionally and if in a perfect world you have everything in your personal life in complete order you have one thing to think about on a big game like a game seven or whatever it is so when you guys were like literally these twenty-three-year-old kids in this town called Edmonson. Do you think you were able to take it more seriously seriously as a combination of things one. It's Not New York City right so you're not or Montreal or Toronto where the pressure is unbelievable. Was Unbelievable Nimitson too but almost a result of how well you how much potential you guys brought to it and then secondly you have this thing around Gretzky which is you all figure. Go out very quickly. You're in the presence of greatness and this is a once in a lifetime opportunity your piece of history in many ways. Do you think that somehow that all galvanized to produce this environment you're describing. which is you could focus so much on your on honing your craft at an at a time when it could have been easy to have put eighty percent of that effort in but twenty percent of that could have been put elsewhere? I think again. It doesn't just happen overnight. I think this is something that if you're interested in it takes a long time to get there and I think that there are a lot of questions that need to be answered along the way of anyone's career you know why am I here. What am I here for you know what am I in tensions? What is the endgame? All my being perceived by teammates the how is a sporting hockey the world perceive me. What am I doing off the ice to be a good citizen? What am I doing to contribute to the community? That doesn't happen when you're eighteen years old. That doesn't happen when you're twenty years old that happens over a duration of period as you evolve as a person so for me when I came came to New York as thirty years old and I had a lot of time for introspection to think about you know what I was needed to do in order to be successful as a player Claire and all that maybe if I came here at twenty two wouldn't have been the same result because I wasn't ready for a or mature enough to handle the external things around the city. Who knows I just look at it? It's it's an evolution of anyone's I think that the sport has to mirror the maturity Eh of anyone's and of those two things kind of keep going on a parallel track. Then you get into players like Tom Brady and players that are redefining their sport and doing things that are considered unattainable whether you're playing into your forties and still hold your radio as quarterback. I'm just using him as yet but I think if you asked him his own trajectory when he first came out and got thrown in well. I think there's something else about. I don't know Tom Brady but I would infer from the outset that there's something about Tom. That's very similar to what you said earlier. Which is I? I don't get the impression. He's playing for another super bowl ring. Of course he wants to win another super bowl ring but that's not the reason he's playing. I get the sense. He's playing because he believes leaves can continued to perfect his craft and and I. I suspect that that's what the greatest thing but winning is the is the end result. It's the way you can measure. That is the way you can measure Asia. And of course you know every time you come to training camp you WANNA win. But I don't think you can just say you want to win. I think they're certain things especially at his age at he needs to do in order to to be put himself in position to be efficient enough at deposition in order to take his team to another and so I think that's where that whole thing I'm talking about word were were sport and life finally come together at a certain age and they parallel the tracks where you become more evolved as a person which only helps you in your sport because you have a better understanding of who you are as a person and all the things that are it takes to be successful from a physical standpoint and the training and then and the evolvement of the knowledge of the game and the experiences I've had so it's quite remarkable and is one of the things that I'm sure he would tell you because I can save myself as one of the things that keeps you in the game at that later stages of the year is is is honing that walking on that razor's edge that very few people people have done and try to do something that has never been done before. You look like you're still in great shape. What do you do today for exercise? How do you stay in shape? Little live everything. Obviously weightlifting is a important cardio and I can get cardio from many different. I was never runner but I ran the New York City Marathon back in two thousand eleven ten year anniversary of nine eleven. Are you deliberate about it. Or sometimes professional athletes when they're done they're done with structure. They've spent their whole lives being very structured in doing this doing this being here at this time being in this training camp being eating this way doing this doing doing that and then when they're done it's like look I'm GonNa work out but I don't WanNA program. I just want to do what I feel like doing. I mean where are you sort of on that spectrum. Yeah I'd say see that. Shortly after I retired I was doing some other stuff and I kept waiting for that through because I used to give myself three hours to work out when I was training. You know it'd take a minute to get an Jim and it takes me ten fifteen minutes to get myself with deep enough concentration to be able to actually put the work into that I would. That would need. I didn't need three hours actually physically work out but I to get myself mentally ready to work out and then when I retired I kept waiting for that. Three hour window to come along up never came along Because the kids and all that kind of stuff so I'm kind of a pretty loose about what I did find though is that I feel better when I work out. I physically feel more awake. I feel more alive. I feel more energized more energy fresher. I guess probably net result of doing it for so many years at your body just becomes accustomed to it and you feel sharper so you know when I did. Retire would wouldn't work all the time and it became apparent to me that I actually feel better when I when I get some kind of work in..

"Jersey. That's where he left still look because I think I told you guys at like because he does a lot of heritage games will show up on the ice. People get excited and he stripped. He's like I am trash hockey yeah. He's like I am so back. I don't play anymore. Did Mark Messier score three goals already cheese. I used to play this game. This was like one of the go-to right excuse me to back in the day Games Chris and I would play together to- jam and earl play some sonic with me as tales <hes> we would play some general chaos yeah <hes> <hes> there's there's a lot of really good games for the second genesis that that you could play couch co-op and we ate that shit up but as far as competitive went in terms of sports games this was the thousands of competitive game. It was so like everything everything we loved everything about it. We Love the lead and music we love the Oregon during the Games hockey's ridiculous yeah as a sport concept is just all of its stupid. There's Zamboni. Go buy or whatever on the ice they got a groom. The ice basically got. There's an Oregon plane. Whatever all these people are gonNA fight each other? What the hell are we at right now? They're how much fun were those fights there so I played hockey yeah. It's like every sports stupid compared to hockey. It's hard to describe had the N._H._l.. Ninety four fights because you're basically on your on a single plane. Yes you can move forward or back you can't change levels and you're just trying to punch and then gliding backwards to avoid getting hit. That's it that's all you and you're just trying desperately to knock the out and they still have blood and ninety four. Yes this because that was a thing because in the movie swingers the whole point is they played this video game which is crazy at a time good they played ninety three and so it was blood that was what they blaze because apparently I was reading about this the other day <hes> they you couldn't clearly make out the team jerseys and ninety three and so they could very clearly make it the L._A.. Kings right infringe God so they didn't have to pay the L._A.. Kings for anything because it was still like an Indie film right about so ninety three you could definitely bleed ninety five the bleeding was gone. I don't remember if in ninety four you made the character bleed but regardless Jeremy Roenick killed Wayne Gretzky I and so on the game either just as a subplot Jeremy Roenick. It's brought up a lot miss. He ended up just being like a whatever hockey he became a hall of Famer. He Never WanNa Cup because to me to me and my brother Chris this. This game defined what hockey was and so two US Jeremy Roenick was the best player like you would play against Gretzky as Roenick and destroy Gretzky yeah and so Roenick was way better in our mind which I think it was honestly like this two or three year time when Roenick was one of the best but I'll see was like Sergei Federov came onto the scene Jeremy Roenick fuck off like Mario Lemieux like Marlin was always better than Germany Ronin at all times. Mario Lemieux considered like the second greatest player of all time in Germany like is in dramas in l. a. and he's on Shit like he's very dude but this is the thing that happens with video games with sports video games in particular is that every creator has a team. Yes ask and like an N._B._A.. Jam is favorite team was Pistons Yeah and he hated and he hated the Bulls. I think it was yeah so anytime you played you put up a last second shot the Bulls against the Pistons it would automatically miss. That's hilarious programmed in the guy was Pistons Fan like that loyalty extends to the people who are making these games and so I wouldn't be shocked if some dude from Chicago's Jeremy Roenick the guy it's not Gretzky..

"To river edge. Jan rutta self on the foul. It's out. Jan how you doing? JJ chips and GM of sorry about that. Timmy, my fault, man. I read the screen wrong. That's totally my bad. What's happening? Our them. JJ? Listen, I hope I'm glad I'm glad to get the ball rolling on the show for show is my favorite as you know. Now, I also think that I was the guy who kind of put this seat out there for the next you've got a lot of colors, but I was the one that was set a few weeks ago. Why be Robin when you could be back bad here for the next. I wanted Durant here, and I was trying to lay the groundwork for it. I told you hopefully to get lucky in the lottery, we get Williamson here and Durant comes bring somebody with him because who wouldn't want to play with Kevin Durant in New York. Moves a lot to win a championship in New York City. I can't stress that enough. It means more to win one here. But it does in Oklahoma City were Durant originally erase it was a supersonic and he was a thunder player. Why not come here? And would it here? You wanted me in the room negotiating with this? You said I had some great ideas. I am selling Durant on. Well. Hey on TIMMY, are you gonna come and be the equivalent of what Mark Messier brought the New York Rangers. Because Messia remember. All his years enersen. Playing along south Wayne Gretzky comes and puts on that ranger jersey took him a couple years. But the guarantee that game six against the devils beating the devils beating the Vancouver Canucks now Messier's this iconic figure here in his town. Yes. Kevin Durant would have that. If he wants it if he wins. The question is does he have this sort of chutzpah? The Mark Messier has c- certain guys they come here. They felt like a Goff. The guys, and we're seeing signs of the ramping very sensitive over criticism of what people are saying about him burner. A caps tween back and forth of people some will say it's just as combative nature. Okay. I'm gonna look at it as being sensitive sorry. And you've got to be mindful that you come to New York apply. If you think you're not going to deal with any criticism. No matter how talented you may be. Mike Piazza heard it. Cheetah heard it. Patrick Ewing hurt. It comes with territory. Scare me off if on the Knicks. I mean, listen, you welcome in what open arms you do. Whatever you can get. But I found that fascinating. It's another example of this sort of behavior from the renaissance over and over again, what said to Brooklyn Antonio is up next on the fan. Let's get Antonio JJ. What's going on before? I would think you put me on as number one. And before I get into my well wanna touch with NBA. I just wanna say now as a knick fan. I would definitely embrace. Kevin durant? I'm Kevin Durant fan and to have them here in New York will probably be just as as a good field has win. You win. The knicks. I mean, I I mean, I could deal with New York. These guys are in New York. Order time they pray in the summer. I'll the hang out here to go to parties. He get themselves into. I mean who wouldn't want to have. I'd be will be a great fit fit. Anyway, Antonio, you know, that he's great fit anywhere. 'cause the player. He's one of the best players in the league. But he's got. No Antonio you pull stunt like he did in the bay area where you're not talking to reporters for nine days, you first press conference after a game you end up throwing a fit because somebody asks you a fair valid question that will not be tolerated here you right? You're right. But you know, what though if he comes to New York and the Knicks sixty and twenty and he's averaging twenty eight thirty points a game. It would that would never happen. Clal town. Correct. That's the idea. You know what I'm saying? So now, it'd be touch real quick then being with this all star game format to me. I don't like it. I'd be the NBA starting to go that route. We Asia's prayer anybody or a team. I think you know, what the is really gonna end up doing. Get rid of all the city names. Just put guys with teams keep the team colors had one big NBA logo maker one big giant Somaly toward him in in the winter, let the let the team is that a New York Knicks. Let them beat a Dolan Doboy worth four billion dollars. Let everybody just putting money in a pot. You you you? You you bogging you bid on players you try to get the best players on your desk. We say they going. I mean the list. Always dictated terms in the NBA. And I don't know where you're going with that point. I really don't appreciate call as far as your star game. It's not what Saddam I'll be the first to tell you that. I know some of the NBA diehards going to try to make the arguments that all it's something you should watch. It's going to be a lot of fun. Nobody plays defense. Thank been an absolute travesty the last couple of years. Why would put it on for about three or four minutes at a time? And I'll just become nauseated by the side of it. Don't sit here and tell me the NBA all star games could product. Nobody would tell you that. There's no competition. Guys, do not try for three and a half the cost of four quarters. I don't care what they do as far as picking teams doing this doing that. I won't watch. I don't care. No interest. Leave it at that Bradshaw. Vinnie up next on the foul itself. Any hey, Don, how're you doing mandates taking my call? My pleasure. What's on your mind? I just wanted to touch on the Kevin Durant thing about the other night. Now, I'm not trying to or anything is just my opinion. But I kinda understand where he was coming from the other night. You know, it's like seems like nobody wants to ask him about the game or the game that he just plays always about free agency. What's he gonna do? And what are you going to do? And you just tired of it. You know, it's w worry he's trying to win a title this year. And all people wanna do we talk about next year? And then he called out that one reporter for when he gives out his opinion gives making he's hearing straight from Kevin Durant. And then it gets the fans wild up, and then all this other stuff, and I didn't think tired of hearing it, you know, I understand that Vinnie. But he's a very simple way to approach. It you tell your organization you tell the reporters over and over again, look I'm here to answer any questions about basketball here to answer any questions about our team. I'm here to answer any questions about the opponent were playing. I'm not discussing anything that's going on in the summertime and coming across his defense. As he did Vinnie. You know, this is not the first time we've seen Durant exhibit this show, the baby he could get very testy at time. He's very much a guy who can't really handle criticism to. Well. I'm not saying they can't play obviously play obviously, complete a very high level. But you have to admit any. There are a lot of guys dealing with fall. Worsen doesn't he come across is a very sensitive superstar. Absolutely. I especially when I heard about the burner, a couch and everything. Embarrassing. Many you one of the best. In the league. Like who the hell cares? I'm telling you right now if I were Kevin Durant, and I got to NBA finals MVP's possession. I got all that lewd in by possession. I got all these endorsement deals in my possession. Do you think I give a rats? You know, what about what John jastremski or Vini on the bread truck or what anybody at the Sam, Bobby? I'd say, hey, look me. This is what I got come get some seriously. I I totally totally agree with that one. Last thing I wanted to say is he gets a really really bad rep. And I get it. But I think if he comes here to New York and God forbid, the title, I say all of it goes away and thanks for taking my call JJ Vinnie. Got appreciate it. Listen. Nobody's discounting. Kevin Durant down. He's one of the best players of the last twenty thirty years. He's on a top ten list. I mean, he's going to be performing at a very high level. I think for the next four to six years. Scoring titles. MVP's finals MVP's got a lot on Arizona. But as sensitive, of course, when he comes here if indeed he's. Deciding to choose the New York, thanks, which by the way is not giving considering he Angeles with clippers. They got another match player and Jerry West is there, and it's not as much scrutiny there. I say go there too. Go a lot of different places. So let's not assume it's a foregone conclusion he's going into next despite what you may read in one athletic story. So let's cool jets on that. But if indeed he does come here. Will there be a grace period for sure? Because there will be so many knick fans just jumping for joy of the I did at that ti- matters once again. Yeah. Maybe for those first couple months. All right gets a little bit of the benefit of the doubt. During the playoffs. Let's say next year. Hypothetic locker. I know Knicks playoffs. What a concept, right. Let's say they're playing the Milwaukee Bucks in a very tough series. And they lose. And durant. Let's say doesn't get the banner of onto Toco. Knick fans be calling me killing. Kevin durant? Absolutely. No about my mind. That's par for the course. That's the way it goes. Are you going to have the Bondi's and the Burmans and the beg lease and the I SOLAS? Then we every day a are better be ready for that. I'm sure climate is giving them all the ins and outs. And he will during the summertime is what you're getting yourself into. But if you do win here. It's gonna take your game and your legacy to another level. Now is that something he wants to do? I'm going to have to wait and see not sure. The New Jersey bridge. He's up next on a foul bridge day. I love your show my boss of you got one thing with harbor. I know everybody in Palestine. Too much. But. Is how not wanting to spend the money or harbor waiting for more money. It seems to me a no brainer on Yankee fan won't be run. The guy said earlier if you want when you come to the Yankees, what is he waiting for is a good question waiting remember? Now, remember? We had an offer though for ten years at three hundred million dollars that he turned down from the Washington nationals. I'm sure whoever is in the hopper can't is probably coming to the realization that ten years. Three hundred million dollars is not going to be sitting there waiting for them. I agree. Rich. Listen, if for some reason, the Yankees could somehow someway, swooping get Bryce Harper. I would do it in a nanosecond, and I've been a guy on this radio station over and over again, very dismissive of the idea of bringing him Manny Machado. I never had an interest. I never had an inkling Machado coming here. I have been very much a proponent of the idea going to get price offer. So we're in agreement there am I going to chastise the Handke's Dolan say shame on them for one of these two players know now at the team they have. Because I teams quite good. Is it a guaranteed bonafide, and it's sure-fire world champion. No. But guess what? Even if you added one of these superstar players. Is it guarantee you when a championship, Dan? Now, it's not guys. Go win. A she got hit in the playoffs. Get big ass in the playoffs. These starting pitching. And you know, what house number was right about that. They lost last year. The Boston Red Sox. Why hat Severino Sobat? All were Bertel tough to win that way. When you start is don't give you much of a chance then perform in a five game series. That's got to change stands got hit in the clutch. Very curious to see what's going to happen here with the hall, Brenda Machado market because we're causing on pitchers and catchers, neither guys sat street thirty seven here.

"What he did that you write to pull Mark Messier off the ice obviously worked up, but here's the caveat this. So I play for eight nine because you know, they roll Gretzky Lemieux, which they should be. So it's last minute. We're up sixty five I'm of the last minute. Like, I mean, I'm played eight minutes. My legs are like, but the adrenaline stuff. That's what might that. You know? That's the sort of things did he'd pull certain guys on an office OMI stories from that any seven that's summer that the tell one tell your favorite one well the best Izzo. So I I was playing for my keen of Philly, and you know, a little bit of a drill sergeant. So I think I've come in. And they wanted, you know steak, and I scream and stuff and makes it now we we didn't have in Philly as he was head of his time with the proper foods and stuff, and I remember messy comes in Gretzky. Where's the steak, where's the ice cream? They look at me, and Brian proper just saying is like doesn't have any goes Invesco. Mike doesn't want watch this marched into Mike you either put stake here at ice cream, or I won't be here for the summer because you know, back then we had took a month off the whole summer. So part of your summer, especially those guys they won the Cup, but we had steaks with like twenty minutes, and we had big public within twenty minutes. So, but that's what was it. Like, I mean that room was a division between the flyers. This is always the rumor. Yeah. Oh, it's right down the middle. There's the Oilers, and there's the flyovers and orders before but there's a little bit of stuff. But I I became best friends with Paul Coffey. Seven Mike you remove Wayne Gretzky for about two weeks. I became friends with Wayne. That's when he started dating Janet Jones. So I remember keep quiet. Remember that? So I was very lucky and we had a great group of guys. I mean, so there was no division at all. So. So Rick weren't Toronto. Which is your home? You were a long shot to make it your late traffic. And here you are. Now, it's been thirty five years you're still in hockey, you're coaching. Now. I wonder when you look at your journey, and what you expected in where you thought you'd be at this point in your life. How far you of exceeded your own expectations? Yeah. I mean, I'm blessed. Everything I've got is from the shell. Whether it's planning coaching, the friends, the people I've met it's really blessed lucky to be involved with the NHL. I remember sixteen. I was going to say Marie and I hurt my knee. And I've never used the Senate out of tier two. And I remember Terry Chris said when it keep you for a week or you need better. But you know, when you're ready to get back in the lineup. And I remember when I hit the ice that I'm ever that had to do something. And I'm getting a fight. I went to the net. And I scored a goal in the end up kept me. And then I play three years for the soup greyhounds and Terry Chris went out of the table in much of the draft. And that's what they had six rounds and another six, and I was like near the end of the six around. So so Terry crisp almo- lot. He's the guy that got drafted Philadelphia. And did you have any idea the flyers were interested in you? Did you think anybody was there? No, I talked to a couple of teams that you know, like was kind of lake guy. I thought buffalo I talked to buffalo a couple teams like that. But when I got the fourth Rams, I heard some might take me and then it was like the sex round. And I was with my brother in the stands where you know, we're way up there..

"Another hand you here. It's an absolute joke that his handlers essentially giving that impression when there's no way in hell, he'll come to the New York Knicks. But the one thing you hear is extreme trepidation on a part of any marquee name to come to New York to play for the Knicks because of James Dolan. Did you present that reality to him at all? And if so what did he have to say about it? I I didn't ask him that specific question. But and I think he believes now that they have they gotta get porzingas back healthy. And if they can prove he's healthy. I think that'll help them this summer. I did talk to some agents about that one. In particular said that Dolan is a negative factor. There's no question about it. I think there are a lot of people around the league who believe that. I don't think Dolan believes that about himself, and you can't just rest on the fact that you provide resources and New York, of course, is is the the biggest and many would say the greatest market in all of sports. I think the one thing where you could make a case that it makes sense for Kevin Durant. If he wins another ring for the warriors, there's one way to maybe separate himself, legacy wise. Lebron James do the one thing. Lebron didn't write as much as LeBron loves Madison Square Garden. He never came to the Knicks. If if Durant wants to be the Mark Messier of the Knicks and be the one to end the championship drought going over decades. Going back decades that would be a major major boost his legacy might put him up in the same neighborhood with LeBron James ultimately, you only need to win one championship in New York to be lionized Forevermark messy found that out. He won five Stanley Cups and Edmonton, nobody talks about that five. They talk about the one or they remember the one he won for the Rangers in ninety four. So that is really the only context where Kevin Durant makes sense to the next. But I think the next believe they have a real shot there. Why did James Dolan tell you or Luda? I don't I don't I don't know if he said directly. I don't recall, according to the article, he basically said, hey, if we wanna championship I wouldn't be a part of that parade. Why is that? I think he's lost the appetite for the whole public side of being an owner. He he says he can't go to dinner without a security guard. He's got fans heckling him when he's out shopping. And so he just he just wants to what he told me as he wants to do is work on the sports side of his professional life. And basically, just go home and be left alone. It's just not something he likes anymore. Obviously, he said sometimes fans will yell out positive stuff and. What either what what what bothers after they won their first game. He said a few people actually call out some positive things to them. And and then he told me, you know, what I didn't like that either. So again, I think a lot of people having a hard time believing that it's possible that anyone including Dolan would sell something as as lucrative and just as essential to the New York landscape as the Knicks. I do think it is possible because he's consumed by entertainment properties. Now, he really doesn't want to be part of the public arena when it comes to being the owner of the Knicks. He has proven he'll make big deals and just the fact now that he told me he's spent so little time on the Knicks anymore. All he does is provide the resources go to the games and occasionally talk to Steve mills, and that's basically it..

I don't I don't I don't know if he said directly. I don't recall, according to the article, he basically said, hey, if we wanna championship I wouldn't be a part of that parade. Why is that? I think he's lost the appetite for the whole public side of being an owner. He he says he can't go to dinner without a security guard. He's got fans heckling him when he's out shopping. And so he just he just wants to what he told me as he wants to do is work on the sports side of his professional life. And basically, just go home and be left alone. It's just not something he likes anymore. Obviously, he said sometimes fans will yell out positive stuff and. What either what what what bothers after they won their first game. He said a few people actually call out some positive things to them. And and then he told me, you know, what I didn't like that either. So again, I think a lot of people having a hard time believing that it's possible that anyone including Dolan would sell something as as lucrative and just as essential to the New York landscape as the Knicks. I do think it is possible because he's consumed by entertainment properties. Now, he really doesn't want to be part of the public arena when it comes to being the owner of the Knicks. He has proven he'll make big deals and just the fact now that he told me he's spent so little time on the Knicks anymore. All he does is provide the resources go to the games and occasionally talk to Steve mills, and that's basically it..
