He wanted to know when it looked inevitable that Ben would pass away as he ultimately did in August. Edmonton's biggest and most beloved hockey fan has died. Ben stelter's father confirmed the 6 year old passed away Tuesday night, the honky community, Maureen, the loss. He wanted to know right away and had somebody call him while he was on vacation in Europe and said just let me know on the funeral would be and I'll be there and he was.

When I asked him about it, he said, yeah, you know, I've been in the league for 8 years now. I'm older, kind of more mature, but that last season would then stelter and his family, I think, kind of gave him again a little bit more perspective on life and that hockey's only a part of his life.

As of this recording, the series is tied at two games a piece, what have you seen from Conor McDavid specifically so far in this series? I see a guy who's been good to very good, but not quite at the same type of dominance that we've seen in the regular season. He's had a lot of chances in the series and just really hasn't been able to convert at the level that he normally has he has two goals for assists for 6 points in four games. 95% of the league would take those numbers, but it's kind of pedestrian by Connor McDavid standards. It wasn't until game three that he scored he had two power play goals. He didn't record any points at 5 one 5 until game four where he had to assist. So there's a lot more for Connor McDavid to do offensively. I think he's been pretty good everywhere else except for that production. But it would be foolish for anyone to count him out. He's the type of player that seems to rise to the occasion more so than wilt. And as we saw last season, when the oilers needed him the most, he was there more than any other player. And there's no reason to think that McDavid can't do that again this season. What else has stood out to you about this series overall? Well, it's certainly been the most unpredictable series of the first round, no lead is safe. The others have blown a pair of two goal leads one in game one, one in game two. And then when it looked like they were out in game four, being down three zero after the first period, they charged back three overtime games in the series. It's a very tough series to predict. The one thing is that the oilers power play has been tremendous and obviously McDavid is a focal point of that power play as we discussed going 6th for 11 is a remarkable run the kings have had their success on the power play too. And I think both teams are trying to kind of figure out the ever evolving or ever changing standard of officiating so that they're not putting themselves in tough spots because power police have reigned supreme in the series. You know, there's been this constant drum beat around the Edmonton Oilers ever since Connor McDavid joined them back in 2015, I believe. About whether or not his talent was being squandered there, he's in the prime of his career, there have been no Stanley Cup so far. What are the expectations or what are the needs for this Euler's team, this postseason? Yeah, I mean, the expectations are sky high. They reach the conference final last year. They had the second best record from the December holiday period Christmas onward from early January January 11th. They had the best points of percentage in the league. This season. Yeah, and they also went into the playoffs on an extreme high going 1401 one in their last 15 games, just missing out on winning the division. The steam is as good as it's ever been in Connor McDavid's career as an oiler. You saw last season when they got a wander Kane that really kind of elevated it rounded out their top 6. Their bottom 6, which was a huge issue for this team. That's changed. And that gives a little extra bit of confidence that this team can do well and have a long playoff run. They have two solid defensive pairings or they should. They have a goaltender who has struggled in the playoffs. I think you were skinner, but a guy who should be up for rookie of the year consideration this season. McDavid dry Seidel, Ryan nugent Hawkins and Zach Hyman, all had career seasons with all the time and getting a hundred points. So this team is offensively potent as it's ever been. It's as well rounded as has ever been. And it's probably as good as it's been defensively even though there's improvement to be made there. So they were my pick to come out of the Western Conference and get to the Stanley Cup final. And as long as they can get through the kings, they should be able to do that. All right, lastly here, Daniel. We've talked about the evolution of Connor McDavid's game, and we talked about his historic season. Are there still ways in which Connor McDavid can continue to evolve as a player or are we now witnessing the man at the very
"mcdavid" Discussed on The Lead
"Daniel nugent Bowman, welcome back to the lead. Nice to meet back on with you Anders. It's been a while, but I'm happy to come back. So Daniel, we're here today to talk about the evolution of Connor McDavid. This guy who has pretty much been the best player in the NHL for a number of years now, but who somehow just keeps getting better and better. Before we get into how he has continued to improve year over year, can you just break down what he's done this season by the numbers and give us some historical context around what he's done as well? Yeah, where do you want to start? That would be my question. There's just so much that Connor McDavid has done this season as kind of put him on this pedestal. He scored 64 goals, which led the National Hockey League in goal scoring. His first time he's ever done that in his career and his 20 goals more than he scored last season. He led the league in goals, assists and points. The first time that's been done outright since Wayne Gretzky in 1987. Wow. His 153 points that put some 15th all time for points in a season. And most of the guys on that list were kind of the offensive steroid era of the game in the 1980s. Only Wayne Gretzky, Mariel and UN Steve iceman have ever scored more points than him in a given season. You probably heard of those three guys. I mean, the season scoring is up a little bit. But not compared to those times or that time when those guys were putting up that type of offense and Connor McDavid has just taken his game to another level and the other stats from the season that are worth mentioning. I mean, power play, they were power play was historically good. The orders converted on 32.4% of their power plays. It's the greatest success rate since the league started keeping track in the late 70s. Wow. McDavid had the fourth most points of any player in league history only mariell mu and three different times had more than him. So he's the focal point of that power play, which is a huge, huge reason for the order of success. Well, like I said, Daniel, we wanted to trace Connor McDavid's recent evolution as a player, which you wrote about after speaking with McDavid and some of the people closest to him. I think the story of his evolution, at least for our purposes, starts back in 2020 during the COVID shortened season, can you walk us through how that season ended for the oilers and how Connor McDavid responded? Yeah, that was a very disappointing end to the season for the oilers and for McDavid. They were the 5th seed in the Western Conference and the 5 through 12 played in the first round play on series, and they were heavily favored against Chicago, yet were knocked out of their best of 5 series in just four games. Outward, Ethan Barrett league back. The hawk to the lead. And David was actually pretty good in that series. He had 9 points in four games, but the team lost out to a team that really had no business being there in Chicago. Have won a series for the first time since the Stanley Cup championship of 20 15. That's where he realized that he had to do more. He had to find another kind of avenue in his game and enhance it. And that was the defensive side of the game. What he did was he watched a lot of the best defensive players in the league studied how they kind of went about their craft, wouldn't cheat anymore, which for a player of his speed and his skating ability, probably the greatest skater that the game has ever seen. So he would support his defensemen a lot more be engaged a lot more battles and his back checking was a lot more aggressive and he was able to kind of help his defenders on the rush too. So that was kind of the turning point for McDavid become a more complete player. So he became kind of a an average to above average player now. He's a very good defensive player. And just to clarify, this focus on the defense side of the game. This was something that was coming from Connor McDavid himself. This wasn't the coaches saying, hey man, you got to start doing this as well. This was Connor taking ownership of it. Absolutely. And he was matched up a lot in that series at Chicago series, but Jonathan taves, who in this era is one of the best two way center in the game. And the kind of looked at prophecy saw somebody like Jonathan taves and other guys like Patrice bergeron, those guys, one championships based on being better two way players. I definitely think early on in my career and it's something that maybe I took a little bit for granted and something that's super, super important. You look at all the guys that have won. And so it was all very much driven by Connor himself where he went to the coaching staff and said, what can I do and he took you forward coach of the assistant coach Glenn godson who he really had some hard conversations with and McDavid told him that he's going to be better and Glenn goldston said, and that was a conversation he wished he could have recorded for any young hockey player in terms of the way that McDavid decided that he was going to make himself better. And by being this really talented offensive player who then starts focusing on the defensive side of his game, he sort of joining a tradition of great offensive players who have done that in the NHL and gone on to have success, right? Absolutely. And Steve weissman in the back half of his career, he really became a two way player like but Dano did that as well. But as I kind of touched on there, that was in the back half of those players career when they the offensive game, maybe they'd lost a step in terms of their skating or their skill or whatnot. McDavid's doing this, it has been 20s. When he was right in the prime of his career. But when he wants a puck back, he's one of the best in the league. And taking it off with no pulling the right there, a little cross check a little separation pickpocket that the eyes the back of his head. Again, I think the defensive side of the game has allowed him to become a better offensive player because he was never somebody that really needed to achieve for offense or to, as I say in hockey fly the zone because he can create so much by beating defenseman on Russia's trip by McDavid. McDavid pulls the trigger and he scores. How quickly McDavid is able to counter. There is no hesitation. So McDavid is doing it again in the prime of his career, whereas guys like iceman, medano have to do it more so by necessity to firstly help their teams win, but also because they were in the back half of their careers. Let's jump to last season when we saw the oilers play some really exciting playoff hockey and they reached the Western Conference final before ultimately losing to the eventual Stanley Cup champion Colorado avalanche. You wrote about how Connor McDavid set out to add yet another element to his game coming out of last season's loss. So tell us about that form of self improvement. Climate David has always been a player and he said this repeatedly and you kind of scoff at it based on how creative and offensive player is, but he always says that scoring goals doesn't come easy to him. You know, in junior I used to ace any of the wide open net score, whether that was a nice pass or going through some guys. I used to take it right to the mat and it was like I was that way when I first came into the league, but it was a guy that needed to deak his way basically to the net and have a chance and close. That's how he felt. That's how he's been growing up in minor hockey. And he wanted to add another layer to his game, and that was his shot. And working on his shot for years, his general manager with the Erie otters of the Ontario Hockey League sherry bass and loves to tell a story about

Then he came to the NHL, and it took him a while to figure it out. But it seems like this kid already understands what to do. He'll still have to figure out how to do it at this level. But For sure. Hey, look, if if you're talking about a generational talent, uh, and for me that McDavid's Crosby Matthews. Um and I hedge a little bit there. Okay. Maybe internally. You have that conversation. Um, but We're not talking about I mean, own power is going to be a tremendous hockey player is going to be a terrific NHL player. I hesitate to say Star, but the the skill set appears to be there. Is he generational? He's not generational. So you hold onto that pick and that's maybe something to for the kids in future draft, so we need to kind of Highlight more that just because you're not considered by, you know people who are paid and to can, you know, label people generational or not? I still think because of the fact he's a defenseman. He's 66 to 14 and he already gets it. They don't They don't grow on trees as much as economic.

I feel like if there's an offer that is worthy of consideration. Then? Yes. You know, there's a good chance that Seth Jones doesn't start the year with the Columbus Blue Jackets. I just I don't know why you wouldn't wait. I mean, you've got time on your side. I guess The only reason is we talking through. You don't wait is because you don't want to have to live with yet another distraction, and Jones has come out to say he's not signing in Columbus.

"So james i have to. I was a little caught off guard last week when nhl ruled out the playoffs schedule. I was like week. The games are starting this weekend. What's the thinking behind the nhl jumping into the playoffs. So quickly here well. They're trying to move as fast as they possibly can. Because they've got some deadlines on the other end. The nhl had a number of shutdowns with the pandemic due to covid absences for different teams and that of structure schedule a longer than they wanted it to. And there's time pressure because nbc is obviously the rights holder in the us. They've got the olympics this summer. They really wanna get the nhl playoffs astounding out of the way before the olympic start. So there's this window where they got to cram as many games as they can so they didn't waste any time getting started. Well one of the outcomes of this relatively quick playoff start is at the vancouver canucks who had a bad covert outbreak earlier. This year are still playing regular season games even though the playoffs have already started their in what appears to be a completely meaningless. Three-game series against the calgary flames. So are you or is anyone planning to watch those games. I don't think the ratings will be very good. No it's this never happened before in. Nhl history one hundred and three years of history for the league and they never had anything like this happened before they have tv rights agreements. That are a lot of money advertising agreements that are a lot of money and they didn't want to get new situation where they were shortchanging those media partners. And we're going to have to pay some money back because sure you know it's been a tough situation for the league revenue wise. They're down three and a half billion dollars from where they normally would be as as an entity as a league. They're trying to make sure that they can play out the season. And we've had headlines on our site that are you know things like oh connects are still playing for some reason or like you know here. Here's an article about the game. If you still care you know it's it's you know to be fair to the nhl in a normal season. There's a lot of teams that are eliminated with month or two months left in the season and they're playing a lot of meaningless game so it just doesn't quite look this meaningless at the place already started.

I'd be cheering from anywhere as the good canadian but Nine cheer inform even more knowing that A little windfall. That could be occurring here now. Wanted to ask you. I haven't seen any of the coverage. Today i've just seen highlights on social media. What are they letting fans in like. Is there a sizable gallery. Or was that just for the starter stuff. No no i see. I see fans out there. Not twenty deep not so. It's a limited crowd that they're allowing in and it seems to me. I was watching watching a hit. A tee shot in behind him. Were the they sort of the camera wide enough that there were six or seven people there and they all had masks on so i don't know if that's the that's the deal or not. So yes there are fans there as the tournament goes on with with all the shutdown here in alberta to and i understand that there i wonder if they'll keep it up. Yeah that they'll let them in So we'll have to see we're in stay at home mode here. Obviously in ontario and So it's It it started this morning at midnight. And so it's it's got. Everybody kind of unsettled. As i said at the outset at least we've got some stuff to keep us distracted. We've got the master's we've got sends oilers the finale tonight and man. I can't even picture a scenario. Where one team could be dominated. In the sport of hockey the sense have been dominated by the oilers particularly connor. Mcdavid and leon draisaitl. They have had an absolute field day. It's been unbelievable. And i mean just last night. It was just basically to even hockey teams. It looked like a pretty even hockey game until those two guys were on the freakin ice. And they just took the game over there just an another level. Yeah another highlight golay. Baikonour chopping winner theory and she to write like this he goes he goes around three guys in about. I don't know eight feet. And then makes a move and looks like he's lost control of bucknell and no one's on his stick and just wrapped it high shelf tip flipped it up there behind the goalie. Did you see what led up to it because we know when when guys are when teams are in a power-play setup right. it's pretty static bit movement. Obviously but it was a really neat move. So this setup and the ottawa zone and mcdavid leaves the zone and gets all this momentum up in the neutral zone curls back in a little drop pass and now they found a way to take advantage of mcdavid speed even in what's normally a fairly stationary thing in the power play sat up so i thought that was a fantastic a strategy by the oilers and manned christine report a miserable attempt at playing defense but to their credit. I mean they were. They were out there for about two and a half minutes. It was just sheer dominance. Like globetrotter stuff. I feel watch connor. I've always said you know well. While there's great players you know what makes him so great And everything everything makes them great but but the way he can move in close in order. I mean steve. Yankee can be his shoulder can be touching yours and you go okay work and he go well fuck around me sorry dropped. He's what happened there. You know like the city blink. Part of what makes make sidney crosby so great. A strong years on his skates and You know connor mcdavid get enough credit for how strong he is. He's not a small player at all..

"Calling but that things cut and dry. Yeah i agree. I i think i'd go go a game or two as well. I think You know there's not a lot of history there. So if he's tom wilson i'd probably go considerably more than that but i would have gone a game or two just because the intent. Was there a some people going. Well cocky niemi got got up right away and maybe didn't land. The blow is as hard as he thought. He would but I i think you have to penalize. To some degree the intent and the intent there was a an upset hockey player is teams getting worked. And i don't know if kotkin yemi had done something to provoke earlier. I only saw the highlight but This was clear intent. He was he really wanted to take his elbow and do damage right and so even though he didn't really do damage delivered kotkin yummy. Was that bad off. So what you penalize. The intent is what could have happened. Is the guys out on his feet. He lands on his face on the ice. It could have been really really ugly in the nhl has to deal with it in those terms but instead they worry. Oh well you know. Little bobby got You know oiler tickets not that not that the tickets to be had but generally that seems to be the way they deal with it. They don't wanna take their stars out of the lineup. because their fans loved the superstars. Well so what is part of the deal. Trade happen Injuries happen guys. Come out of the lineup. All the time and suspensions at part of that as well the fan base understands that completely. Yup and i agree right. The the league saying okay. Don't you know we'll try our best to not to take you out of games okay. We don't we don't want to be the one to do that right but but you know. Don't you do it okay. Don't don't make it easy for us. You know and then kick your your you know everyone freaking out kicking and screaming you know. You can't suspend that guy he can suspend the guy. Well it's okay. We can't on a fifty fifty call but let's have a look at that thing again. you know. give us a break. Give me a break. And that whole argument. Steve about you know where the guy got up right away and didn't get hurt. You know so you you you gotta give them less of a penalty less of a suspension less of a fine right. That that's the equivalent steve of driving impaired smashing someone head on hitting someone had on 'cause you're drunk and nobody got hurt in there and then them saying okay. Well we're not going to give him the the fold deal here with the law because nobody got hurt you know or texting and driving smashing into someone you know is you know she. You should have your license suspended for that stuff. You know what. I mean absolutely. Yeah it's just it's just a dumb argument you know the that the guy didn't get that hurt so you know no penalty. He also should be careful too. Because i mean part of the reason we have. Suspensions is know you're looking after player safety and the players that the league is always most were worried about is the safety of guys like connor. Mcdavid like the elite of the elite. Maybe the greatest hockey player not just now. But maybe ever. That's a discussion you can have in the in. The league wants to make sure that guy stays healthy and now he's going to run around and behave like that. I think you start to put a target on yourself. If you're going to start doing things like that. If you want target to be on you know not that. I know that mcdavid gets targeted enough. And that's part of the whole fighting thing to You eliminate fighting than it's kind of open season on guys like mcdavid but you know we talk about brad marchand. Who's another elite player. Nobody thinks twice about running that guy because he's a weasel himself Not seeing mcdavid is anywhere close to that. Obviously but you do that kind of thing enough like he did in that game on tuesday night against montreal. The target will come right. Here's the here's the bigger problem steve. So if i was the commissioner right. And i'd say whoa. Whoa whoa here. You're not giving that guy suspend what happens tonight. Stephen the games when guys start flying around there with their elbows up you know and aiming guys heads and you know they call a penalty or other. They're going to suspend the guy and he just takes that snapshot of connor mcdavid right and brings it in and goes. You can't suspend me for that right right. So it's setting them back man it's set in the back and like i say all they want is a clear cut thing and they got a clear cut thing to to make a statement. I normally agree with you if the nhl department of player safety was run by logic you could absolutely bring still f- still photo of economy gave and say well you. That was five thousand dollar fine. And i did the same thing Villagers say well. That's connor mcdavid. That's the reality. He's connor mcdavid and year Billy galardo right so right right. It's really you might as well not find him. That's a singer. Lisa great five grand. I find him at all. I don't know what the amount is fifty. Jeez that's pretty stiff. Fine i guess you know. Let's five grand. That's it stupid. That's the max. Can you believe that. Five thousand dollars is the absolute max that you can throw at a player and a player like connor. Mcdavid makes the doe. He does that's just something. He could easily find under his couch. I'd be running around all day all day with my elbows. Way up in the air. Know the economy's twenty games five the cosmic hundred grand and he can elbow someone in the head every game for the next twenty now. Speaking of superstars. I'm keen to hear your reaction to erik carlson. News conference a couple of days ago. He's as a standard zoom deal. He's by himself in front of the microphone. The cameras trained on them. Were watching on zoom and in the report is get to ask their questions on the one hand. The guys like munching on an apple into the microphone. And then on top of that.

Eric the best office game ever hauled goals and essentially trick win the game winner. The not even close shank one loud apple. We didn't dr the audio on that at all but honestly i thought that was outstanding. Yeah i'm on. i'm with you on that. I'm with you on that. I feel for those guys what they have to go through every every game after every game especially i don't i don't think san jose's planning that well are they They have no right and an air. Carl not exactly lighting it up these days either right right so you probably don't wanna take that answer when your team shitty. You probably don't wanna it's like really dude. Are you going to you know. Is this really the time for me to be bragging about good games or not. So i get. The apple thing is like what that would drive me bananas. If i was you know the press of the media guy for the team you know who's constantly trying to line up interviews right for the press yet. These guys give me a break. Val you mean break. I thought it was funny. Now is answer. I love his answer. You not even close. Not even close. Jared great answer. It was dismissive in everything is a bit rude. I suppose but you know it's it's also a little bit rude to not know air. Carlson is this guy. Is i think He's got to norris trophies. He's been runner up on a couple of occasions he's had it was like one year. I think it was run. Two thousand sixteen. He closed out the year. Like fourth overall. Not not among defensemen fourth overall in nhl scoring with eighty two points. And all. so it's basically my point is it's a. It's a hockey reporter. Who's not really doing his homework and asking a question like that and the guy didn't tune off forever. Is you have any idea who i her. Carlson and your some two bit reporter doesn't know anything about hockey. I think he accomplished all that with those three little words. Not.

Could a Jack Eichel Trade Land Him With the Boston Bruins?
"You want to make a safe bet how about you bet every year around this point of the Season where Jack eichel is unhappy with the situation in Buffalo there every year. It's the annual Jack. Eichel is sick of Buffalo story, but probably won't actually get traded. Maybe this is finally the years but Buffalo continues to lose which I don't know why this is a surprise to him at least like just cuz my God what Taylor home exactly like to be I don't know maybe I guess when you're in that moment, you know when you're on that team you think wow, we just got so much better. But in reality you just got a better scoring Winger on one line. Like it's this isn't the NBA where like you acquire a player of Taylor Hall is Cal log. The NBA and it's like why we are a much better team in hockey. It is four lines and you obviously one score is not going to transform whole team. So Jack eichel is reportedly not super pleased with the losing an awful. Oh, I don't blame him that miss that situation looks miserable. So every time this happens the Jack eichel to the Boston Bruins rumors always like to get straightened up baby back wheels turning on that and I I am so here so here for the even though this like will never happen. There's a less than 2% chance. I'll give it a little chance. But but less than 2% chance this ever could actually happen equal to the Bruins, but you you astutely tweeted out Wednesday morning.

I mean hitmon law, this is my favorite go figure Boston gets or Buffalo gets the Evan marinoff skier F boss gets Jacqueline Connor McDavid, and I said, I think the Prof gets more than just McDavid Michael. I think you might get puter off in there too. Well, here's the thing too. I mean Buffalo is in such disorder and disarray that you need not stabilizing presence there someone that's going to bring Authority and stop the shenanigans. So who better than that having that or not graph to correct? What's been going wrong in Buffalo for decades now, you gotta lay down long. That's what he's going to do. Right right down right now.

You know definitely time to give them a chance. But the reason i mentioned him is because he left practice early today so hopefully. He's not down with an injury. But if so you know hopefully bellows gets another shot at it. And they didn't write him off too early Wait and see. I guess no definitely just you gotta wait and see just like Prospects pen now. Yeah i mean. Even if it doesn't work this season you know it's shortened season. He's on taxi squad. He's probably gonna go down to bridgeport so we'll probably have at least another one to two opportunities this season but you know you have to give him another year or two probably to develop a little bit more. Yeah this is all good experience. Will we'll put it at that for him Speaking of experience sarokin has finally experiences. I w as well as a shutout so Great great win finally for sarokin nine. Oh it's you know. I've been looking forward to seeing them for a while and i'm really glad that he was able to do that. Do the watch. Yeah no exactly. He definitely looked You know capable and he looked like he belongs which You know all that you can ask for especially you know someone who didn't have their first win yet you know. Yeah yeah no. It's been unfortunate because it feels like every time he's played the team hasn't played well in front of him..

"Stuff man. And the last thing i just want to say about it. Is that after. The article came out. Kyrie's said that they would pursue legal action against the media and her for harassment and katya sharing for harassment. And it's not very cash money. Honestly no i basically fake news and this is like bro. Fuck off that has to be like. I don't wanna say scary. But like imagine net like you you come up with an article basically saying all you gotta say and legitimate all backed up by real sources and you're going to get sued s insane. It's bullshit that is true. Well we got a few things left including talk about our our two favorite teams Who you wanna go first. I'm sure yeah why not This past week for the islanders have been fairly good. Pretty good for the team Little disappointed in last night's game against pittsburgh I don't know they re. They really weren't looking like they're ourself. Especially these past couple of games. They've been playing very well So to lose four to one pittsburgh like that was definitely definitely disappointing ethic attributed to that though was keefer bells. Unfortunately so. I believe it said that he had seven games in the beginning of the season then was bench for a little bit then came back and i was like his first game in a really long time that he was on the ice and he had a couple defensive mishaps. Miss a couple of defensive cues. I think is what i'm looking for. And he doesn't look good. He didn't look good young guy who has been playing Gets back on. The ice in has a bad game. And barry trotz had very very harsh words for him and basically called him out basically saying like you know he's here he's in the meaning so that this was his opportunity and he squandered at basically which i guess is good. It's what you wanna hear from coach. But like i feel like this past season with trotz it's been so like weird You have a guy like off who takes a five minute penalty then comes back again. This isn't a third period in a tied game. Takes a five minute penalty then loses the game on a bad defensive play and you don't say a word about him and you just say oh you're veterans are going to get their. Your veterans are going to get there and you're defending these guys. Defending guys like nelson defending guys like letty. And then you know your rookie or young guy makes makes one bad game makes a couple of mistakes. And you're ready to sell off and not stardom feels weird. It feels like he has something against the young guys which is just it's weird. It's kinda looking like bellows. Losses spot to michael dell call who surprisingly enough has been playing very well as of late..

"Apparently there's a lot of sexual harassment and a couple of sexual assault cases in the organization. I'm not. I don't mean alanon. I don't mean to. We'll s i didn't need to laugh and i said but still just like it's like how can and like the owners like let like let it slide and like pushing it to the side. It's like it's like that's a serious thing and especially if you're like a family oriented place like that's like a serious thing like he doesn't your own workers. Don't feel comfortable. You know it's like how do you expect to run properly another thing. I think that In hindsight looking back now makes sense. Well there's two things but one of them is the mitchell miller drafting and you know the guy from this past draft to racially and physically harassed one like developmentally disabled kid through his secondary school day is like dude how do you draft that like he was literally penciled off like ten teams draft boards allegedly. He was pencilled off by the team's original Leadership like date. They had draft interviews with them and eight-day originally had him on his do not draft list obviously Chaika left and a lot of things changed in that front office and one thing. Let's another and they drafted him. Like how does the only let him go a couple yet to let him go a couple of weeks later when they realized that they fucked up. And it's like how tone deaf are you especially like an old. You know this would have only happened because of the situation that the world was in. But it's like or the the world is in but it's like this literally came a couple of months after you know like Like the george floyd thing happened and it's like this happened a couple of months after that and you know that you're and be in a bad public light when you draft this kid and it's like how are you going to draft a kid who's documented early are documented for an admitted to it. He's admitted to the like being racially abused as i'm being physically abusive to this kid throughout years of abuse. Yeah no he. He wasn't hiding it. that's for sure. No news fully open about it. And then the kyri said oh. Yeah this is a way we're gonna we're gonna try and work with them to help him understand what he did. You don't even know how to treat your workers tell this eighteen year old kid who obviously doesn't give a shit.

"I know you were very excited when you read the article from katie. Shang about the coyotes. Okay so if you guys have the athletic read this article. If you don't get the athletic just for this article it is such a good read like i. I'm pretty sure. I- creamed reading it now. Because i pray 'cause i pray on the downfall of organizations but like such beautiful journalism lake like i don't know i haven't been this high turnover of writing in awhile. Basically it's a deep dive about the coyotes owner and how much he sucks a home. Basically just that. I got out of it yet. It's extremely long but man. It is so worth the read it's called. It's called dysfunction in the desert finger pointing fear and financial woes real the coyotes organization and man it. It took me a while to read it. It's a while. I know i was trying to take a look at it because again. I know that you really enjoyed reading it. So i wanted to ask about like halfway because i was just busy running around but From the gist of it and just initial read. That i had a it looked. Well put together and Very interesting Perspective of the team. I guess i can say yeah and it's like still basically to summarize it you know the owner. I forgot scumbags name. What's his name hold on. Yeah alex morello So big part of the article was that she interviewed over twenty former employees. I think it was something like that. And they were all saying basically at hellenic if so one of the quotes if i was talking to a future employer. I'd say it's been a learning experience if i was being frank with you. I'd say it's a shit show. Basically he's trying to he. He owned a bunch of pizza chains before or like a pizza chain before and his tried implement those strategies into a team and so he reportedly hasn't been paying employees hasn't been paying players like signing bonuses and stuff cutting health benefits and like saying no. Yeah he hasn't been paying vendors either and it's like how is the league not stepping in our. The is the legal. Where do they they know about this. And they refused to comment that if anything they gary bettman has been given praise. They've been saying that. This is the best organization that they've had For you know the coyotes or ownership that they've ever had so they beginning praised from the league rather than anything else yet..

"The numbers that he has been able to pull up and Actually the athletic put up a article about crosby and everything like that you know just him hitting the milestone of a thousand games and stuff like that and it had a bunch of different peoples like fever goals favorite moments and like every single video that they have like three two of them were against the islanders. So he's just been torching the islanders for for years and years and it's just i'm sick of him honestly but yeah. I mean i know you don't want to hear. But i hope he's put mean thirty three now. I hope he plays forty three honestly. I love watching them play. I came along. I mean if he can stay healthy he certainly can't do it. I don't think that's out of reach for him anymore. Yeah indubitably indubitably dammit. I know i know we yesterday. Twelve dollar holler whiskey. Show alejandro kenzo the devils fan. Just getting but Us even right now. He doesn't even watch hockey. I know loser loser dork but another thing about crosby to reason he's trending right now is because he just said in an article or i think it was an interview. He said that how he plans to stay with pittsburgh for his entire career. I don't think that's a surprise or shock anybody that who would want to stay but I guess it's good to hear from him. You know i don't really. I found the pittsburgh fan. I guess i'm happy to hear that but then again i heard that before and never happened. So does crosby. Have maple leaf pajamas or something or you would imagine. I mean i think he where was he newfoundland or nova scotia nova scotia griffin. So maybe he makes maybe he makes a pushed over the border row. That'd be sick i would. I would be happy. I think i could actually support him at that point What's called is that. I'm sorry for jumping topics but isn't By kim staying From what are the there was a tweet or something and it was somebody saying like. Oh yeah crosby should say. A penguin tapes Should be a blackhawk had did you see three. Yeah yeah yeah you did send that and basically dislike you know should a player who means a lot to a team always stay there or not. And i'm thinking like shane jones. Who like always saying the coyotes like a weird thought and he was like yeah man..

"Make. David is playing in a higher scoring. League is what people are saying which to that part. I do have to say yeah. That's true however he's been like leading the scoring in the league. I think almost every year that he's been a league. Yeah no he's he's not like. Yeah so i mean. I don't know how much you could take that in consideration because it's like yet the league maybe higher scoring but he's still at the top of it back. you know. the story is really interesting. all the chart. Sorry sorry the lag. Kicking in. I had a i had a jinx on us ed jinx on us but I was gonna say the charts is crazy. You know just looking at it. 'cause i especially in the eleven twelve season right. There really played twenty two games and like adjusted for eighty two games. It's one hundred thirty seven points. Yeah i mean obviously the chances of in keeping that entire pacing tire seasons probably slim to non but yeah hypothetical world if he had a season where he was getting her thirty points. Which crazy but No i mean. He is definitely a hot performer. And of course injuries were what what really sidelined him. And you know just taking a look at this chart. I mean twenty ten tony eleven only forty seven games and twenty two than backs. Thirty six the following. So you know. He plays full seasons there. And it'll be insane series at also another quick thing about crosby. The reason why found the sharks. 'cause he's trending on twitter because Tomorrow night i think it gets the islanders right Is going to be as thousand game. Played so really. I didn't even know that you know he's crossing a milestone there But he could have had that like seasons earlier. You know for at least one or two seasons earlier. If you wasn't interest so much which you know i can't really fault the guy forgetting endured but not kinda sucks to think about but hopefully we don't see the same thing with mcdavid. Hopefully we get a full healthy career out of him so we could see see what milestones. Yeah no and i know this is just because i'm salty fan but i just hate crosby i just think he's a bitch so i really wanna see mcdavid outperform him in any sense of the word. So hopefully mcdavid doesn't man. I honestly in pulling for him. More than i would ever pull for crosby see. It's funny that you say that. Because like as conducts fan. I probably should hate mcdavid but like i. I can't i love the guys who much well no. He just seems like a nice guy too. Yeah i'm actually just did the math I added up all the points per eighty two. And if he were to have all those points you know whatever he would have sixteen hundred thirteen points right now which is which is three hundred fifty more than he currently has And i didn't actually whole which is nuts just thinking about potentially missing on three hundred fifteen points or three hundred fifty points and that would put him right now at just behind With six hundred thirteen. Yeah that would put him just behind. Joe sakic in points for he will be tenth overall points ever right now at thirty three. Jesus which is absolutely bonkers and you know. I don't know it's crazy. it's insane it is absolutely insane..
