I lost her survival pool a couple of weeks ago. Pick tennessee Wasn't such a good pick. So now i have limited interest in the the Survivor pools. But i am dialing in more to the super bowl odds. I don't think anybody is shocked by the tampa. Bay buccaneers plus five hundred. The buffalo bills buffalo was a little shaky early on in the regular season. Those really good aren't they. They look to be really good. We'll see anyone in that group that catches your eye like the green bay packers and plus eleven hundred. I feel like marley. Green bay should be a little bit better odds than little higher. I think they're a better team. Anyone catch your eye well. I didn't know the rams were as good as they are. And so. so there's there that's who i'm going to say you know like arizona's off to this amazing start but i don't know i just like the rams i i think there's a better chance detroit doesn't win a game. How long have they saw long time. Like the lions terrible since forever. Yeah usually get hammered. Every time he admitted your browns fan right. And now i mean it's it's fashionable be browns fan. I i like the look. I'm a bit surprised the kansas city. She's not a bit a lot surprised ebbing. They struggled pretty early in the regular season. I thought they'd find their way and they just don't seem to be finding their way. But have you seen the odds speaking of the detroit. Lions to go winless who the regular season like. Do you think there's a chance they go. Winless of there is a chance. But how good of a chance do you think you gotta think they're gonna win somewhere. No right yeah. I think so but the odds right now according to kubeck dot. Co and and you can put money on this. They will go winless plus nine hundred minus three three three three that they do not go. When in the case of drags my one of my favorite movies boulder. Yeah and you remember the scene where the manager gets them in the shower. And he's yelling adam and he turns around to his coach and he says coach losses. How many losses. We got goes. We got a lot of losses. Say so that's what i think of what i think of the lions masses.

"A fan of the edmonton weiner's sacher. Just a fan of the sport. In general it doesn't appear that you've had much of the way of growing pains in making the jump from the toronto maple leafs from the east to the west to the edmonton honors. Has the transition for you to this point. Really been a smooth as it appears been It's been pretty smooth and it's been it's been really fun but obviously when you when you move cities and windows moving you're picking up moving your family. There's there's some growing pains there with getting a house and getting a new car and getting situated but from a hockey and point and from a teammate standpoint. it's been unbelievable. and and the city's been incredible breezy point here. So everything's been really good. And i think the auto credit for the guys for being so welcoming because we do have a bunch of guys who amend and that's exceptionally when you're kicking around all this stuff at the end of last year that you know you're in discussions with the leafs. Is there a way to make it fit. You probably had a feeling one way or the other. But what's that decision like for someone who's at home plan for the leafs and you can see kind of where this is heading like. What's that last couple of weeks like a lot of sleep. The it's It's a hard time just because there's so many moving parts and and it's not just the hockey decision the vision the family decision to i need ten months. But i'm timing. I dunno seven months summertime and thinking about you know. where is your son. Grow up your wife's moving ways. She's from toronto. Atlanta's and i always kind of having a family here have. Both of our families are in charles. So it's not just a hockey situation. It's it's a ally situation but we're really happy with with the decision obviously and tamaki implant. It was so easy. We've definitely like. I said that i thought would would work really well and then instead of four but one of the most important parts fat precision was actually born outside and and the city and seeing where. We haven't seen where theo or summer grow up and alanna never been then so when she got there and was able to see all those things that we've been easier decision process and we're really happy. So you're you're playing with austin matthews. Who's probably the best shooter in the game or next to oversee the best shooter in the game and chances are you're going to go to edmonton and now you're gonna.

How can those players be better more consistently even their own team. Says the same thing. Jake muslim who. I a feel or sense of moslem that. There's there's not a lot of bullshit jake. Muhsin agreed and so he said at the beginning of the year we we've learned a to be a little more mature in our game. Yeah well right now. They need to stick their noses in. They need to get their hands dirty because they may think they are. They're not san. Jose deserved the win. The other night they played the night before and montreal. Toronto had four days off five days off. They should toronto. Should've skated those guys into the ice. And it didn't happen and not much is happening throughout that lineup. With the exception. I mean michael hutchinson and his game wasn't very good right now. They've got the injury maroshek. Sounds like he's getting healthy. Jack campbell for the most part is has been fine if not better than fine but then you look at the defense. You mentioned muhsin david camp. Who's a real good defensive forward. His numbers aren't good defensively. Their power play isn't like you're the coach your sheldon keefe. You're looking at it. Gone aside from juggling that lineup. Where do you start. Just start with the power play and say okay. It's been it's been five games but really it's been two games. Yeah i've been six games. It's been two games because matthew knives visas about but everybody's hung up on the setup whether mourner belongs in the middle or on the wing against san. Jose couldn't get in the zone right no matter what your setup is. They couldn't get in the zone so they're not sharp. They're not right. Some of it can be cured with with a little bit more as we used to. Call a little as my dad. You say a little more elbow grease right like you get you get to work here. All all throw allies patterson from the connection. That's too there are times when a player thinks they're working hard enough and they're not like pederson says. Yeah my game's not right yet and you know what think back to his first year. How many times did you see him. Just tenaciously winning pocket. Back as an always on the puck like pavel data. Klay there right now. He may think he's doing it. he's not in. Toronto is not committed enough to get themselves over the hump to let their talent takeover. They're not yet and they better get there quick. Yeah agreed likewise with the chicago. Blackhawks this imprint. They're they're not but that's the way it appears. And i didn't think that they were going to make great strides. But i did feel that they were going to be better. And maybe that was putting too much stock. And bringing in seth jones and marc andre fleury and of course jon tapes being back on the ice leadership role and being healthy again. That's just a great. Nhl story but it just it. It feels like they're coming apart at the seams with that organization. Like on and off the ice while i was there for was there tuesday. I guess now and it was their home opener. They were playing the islanders. They played a good thirty minutes really good thirty minutes and then they just fell apart in their start. One in five their minus fifteen in goals like that is a debacle. Mine is so..

"Sergei rabovsky who's been booted in the shins for the last few years for pretty average play spencer night as well. They've got aeronautic bled back joel quenneville of course behind the bench. He said he sees a little bit of you. Know the the blackhawk copiers in this panther team. Yeah terrific start for them. Edmonton is connor. Mcdavid on pace for like two hundred twelve points again. It's crazy start for him. Their power play is unreal. I think two things that are going to be key for the oilers have been terrific so far one is the play. Duncan keith now. He's not duncan keith. From twenty ten but he has been really good yeah. He's been very good for them. That helps certainly on their defense. The others are goaltending has been more than adequate. Mike smith i and then when he got banged up a bit and he'll be back later this week. Apparently mika skin it's it's been been more than adequate if they can do that in goal man at mcdavid and dry seidel there now. They got hyman. And and pull yari. As and ryan nugent hopkins. That's that's a good team carolina. I'm surprised that they got like ten or eleven new guys. I thought they were going to have a little bit of a feeling out process. Freddie anderson's been awesome and goal for them. You know so. They're they're often running in the team. That i think they're one of the better teams but it surprised me how much they've scored early as saint. Louis a write in david perron had a hat trick. The he seems to be getting better. You like saint. Louis is where he thrives right. You're right. he went away. Played elsewhere back to saint louis. It's just the place for. Yeah all right. So we go through the undefeated. Which probably won't be undefeated when you're listening to the podcast. That's fine some great stories out of the gate so now let's kick over to the not so great and we'll start with the toronto maple. Leafs who again are playing the undefeated carolina hurricanes this monday night. So perhaps that takes the maple leafs in in a different direction. The morning skate children keefe essentially changed everything. He defended nick ritchie and rightfully. So i felt in talking about okay. Everybody in the media. Want to gravitate to nick. Ritchie isn't a fit with matthew matthews minor. Finally said okay. Well you could ask the same questions..

"This but he was what donald trump wanted talk. He it'll be dropping after the election so but anyway go ahead He he was very good at bringing people together and making deals and he said i can't make this happen. It just won't work. People aren't going to get behind a huge bond issue while all this money is still on the astrodome. So that was that was the that was when it became clear to me that this thing was going nowhere and yesterday they were going to lead on of course now. We had all prophets of doom saying. Well it'll be forever before houston gets another. Nfl years Many years was at i. Five four five. Something like i think. That's right yeah but And at that point The the the jig was up. That was all that was That that was all that could be done. That was going to be done. And so now we start getting these visuals bud shutting off to nashville and and putting his deal there in place so they They did their deal. The oilers were supposed to play in houston three more years while the stadium was being built in nashville and that turned out in the first year to be every bit the disaster you might have predicted welcoming. It's become a lame duck thing right. My understanding is that with the end of the ninety five seen as we ninety five seasons when it was announced but when was it in the air was it was a before then or was it really a surprise in at when the announcement came in and of the ninety five six. I think it came into focus for people and ninety five. Yeah and so. They're supposed to play three more years and ninety six They had crowds not every game but some games of fewer than thirty thousand fans. I mean you know. This is football country. That was unheard of good team and gm whatever People were just a past the anger stage. It was. we don't care anymore. They've decided to go so we're sort of writing them out his spree at least out of our current context and so the league stepped in and got everybody together and they decided that. Go to memphis because there is a suitable stadium there and play for two years there until the stadium was ready for. That's what happens in the fans in memphis didn't like that either because they knew they were the a situation there too they were just a temporary waystation right and that too i just so how about jeff fisher the coach at the time right he. I think it's lost on all of us in this. Is this fisher. Obviously a big a character in where the The now titans sort of came into being but fisher was the coach of this thing. Ninety five and ninety six. I mean he must have and frankly brought them back to a little bit of respectability but how does he and his staff and the players have handled all this. Because we're talking about a very Traumatic kind of period of time. The last year's in houston the the couple of years in memphis while the nashville things sort of plays out and then ultimately trying to domicile in nashville. That could not have been helpful or or easy in in this process. Either no fisher. Fisher was a good man. He'd he handled it professionally and even stoically. He just kept his mouth shut. He took his lumps. They did the best he could with what he had. And i think it's fortunate he was rewarded by getting to stay on. He had been on staff. He'd been secondary coach before he was promoted to head coach. So he he been around. He knew where the bodies were buried. He knew the personalities involved and he just Just bit his. His lip is on in and and kept his head down and handled it. All is well as anyone could have. Thanks so it was good that he got to have a taste of success. After i finally got smash so as the team is overstaying. It's welcome i guess. Ninety five ninety six and the team sort of Fumbles its way into tennessee. And then ultimately to to nashville by ninety nine so give me a sense of was there any feeling of abandonment by the fans and or the sports media there and houston or was it kind of good riddance and i guess. The the the kicker of that question is what were the houston fans and maybe even the sports media feeling once the titans in their first year in nashville when all the super bowl. Was there. Sort of indignation where those with certain closet rooting for the team or was it. Was it pretty much a clean break. Because you know you had your chance and you you left us. And we don't really care how you're doing going forward like i guess. The lingering fandom is there was there is there still any During that process of leaving and then ultimately where they've been living for years since well a there's always gonna be some nostalgia. I mean i the years. I still occasionally get an email now then from somebody who said i just reread your book. It's always going to be a few. But i would say houston process the oilers leaving and ninety five well really and ninety five. There was there was anger that there was righteous indignation and there was some and it wasn't all directed but out. There were the diehard fans. Love the thought that the city and the mayor should have done whatever was necessary to keep the team and used so all that was processed by ninety six. The deal was done. He signed his contract in nashville. And so it's it was. Let's move on and that's what you said he did it. Was you know whatever whatever thought there was put into crowfoot all in houston back then was what are we gonna do to get an intake. And i don't remember just when but you know. Discussion started about a new stadium You could do a new stadium even with money owed on the astrodome. If bud wasn't going to get the benefit because he had been the guy who Who did the shake now. So by the time the tennessee titans went to the super bowl. I know that houston really noticed. It was it was though the The seattle seahawks non to the super bowl. I that's that's my recollection going back. Close.

"An army to get him to get him on the ground but for sure and and all the the video shows it right. I mean and it's also even more interesting. I did to clarify. He was Earl was the mvp of the league and seventy nine but he was offensive player of the year. For seventy eight seventy nine and eighty and he was. He was also the offensive rookie of the year. At seventy people. Sort of forget that Earl made this splash coming right out of college right which is certainly possible. But it's not always the easiest thing making that transition from the collegiate game to the pro game right. Yeah he was that good He didn't he didn't miss a beat. He was as dominant force in in the pros as he had been in college. Yes that is. That's very rare. Well so tell me about the love. Love your blue thing right. Because i'm i'm just really curious about how the fans sort of took to this right i. It's interesting in my research. And i knew enough. I mean i certainly remember the that original houston oilers number one song which i think by the way we'll will have embedded in our episode. Once we drop this. But i think on a per capita basis the houston oilers may have had more official and unofficial theme songs in their career than just about any team that we've explored. This far would.

"Houston and frankly people in texas in the afc The afc or the the current of see whatever and the old afl for that matter What a what a story this was. And frankly in many respects kind of continues to be the legacy of very much lives on the the colors and the The the logo the name and of course the history. And we're going to get into the story of the houston oilers this week. With our special. Guest ed fowler. The reverend ed fowler retired but still actually a real honest to goodness anglican church minister slash. Reverend ed fowler is an interesting part of the story here to We'll sort of get into that Interesting career change. And what was ed. Prior to his higher calling shall we say he was a longtime sportswriter. Yeah lies largely in the the houston metropolitan area with the houston chronicle but before that Places like the austin american statesman the kansas city star the chicago daily news here closer to us or what used to be closer to us back in the day when new newspapers were thing and sports writing in those newspapers were more than the thing they were probably frankly The sort of unwritten reason. Why a lot of people actually subscribe because the sports section was Not only journalism but also Diversion from The The distractions of of crazier world in the earlier. Sections produce paper but ed fowler as an interesting story himself but also the topic at hand that we're going to get into. We're going to use him and his Book that came out in the late seventies late nineties. Yeah i go. There was nineteen ninety-seven in particular And this is how we sort of discovered in an and got in contact with ed. The book is called. Loser takes all but adams key part part of the story for sure but adams bad football and big business. It's really the story of the houston oilers and sort of how it came and a mesli went and and our conversation this week with fowler gets into the story of the book the story of the oilers and as you can imagine we we try to tackle the attended. Yes pun intended All of those issues relating to The ops and certainly there were a number of them But largely downs especially on the way out of the The houston oilers. Now of course Represented in reconstituted form as the tennessee. Titans and yes. We talk about the tennessee oilers for a couple years again that messy departure from houston and at last check. Not a whole lot of oil in anywhere in the state of tennessee. But now that didn't stop the team for still being called the tennessee oilers for a couple of years before they Firmly and Officially domiciled themselves in nashville Two years many forget were a prior to that in tennessee in memphis at the liberty bowl. That's where they were known as the tennessee oilers. In before becoming the titans are all part of the the lower and the legacy and the very interesting stories. A related to that and The clip at the beginning kind of gives a sort of a hand. It certainly is debatable. As to win the era in the late seventies kind of started It is known without Conjecture however as the let's call it the love ya blue era. This is around the time. The nineteen seventy eight seventy nine eighty or so when the houston oilers were probably amongst The hottest if not in cer- certain areas of nfl football the hottest team going with an amazing array of stars including one Hot rookie by the name of earl campbell. Phenomenon really is an understatement. I guess not only in houston but in the nfl itself and it took a little while to kinda of geel into what actually became a trademark phenomenon. Literally called love your blue. but most scholars Would kinda circle around november twentieth nineteen seventy eight and the monday night football game that you just heard a little clip from the intro to frank gifford and howard cosell dan where the The oilers were hosting a nationally. Televised game against the miami dolphins and Was sort of a sort of a burst of of energy and color and noise That absolutely came across on the on the broadcast the poms waving everywhere and a hell of a game and actually many people think that is perhaps one of the best monday night. Football games of all time that game when the oilers One a very entertaining game. It's it's all there on youtube behind earl campbell. Almost two hundred rushing yards. I want to say he had one hundred ninety nine actually four touchdowns he ran for and the oilers one out and a thirty five to thirty Victory certainly others might look at some later games. But this was a national sort of shot across the bow so to speak and there's a lot of of of energy and end up going on there i some would also Frankly suggests that the next year December i think december tenth to Nineteen seventy nine to ninety seven about a year. Later was when sort of the love. You blew sort of trademark era. I guess sort of occurred but regardless of when you think it was also another monday night. Football game by the way. I regardless of how you sort of circle around it if you were there at the time and or you were just an nfl fan at the time. Paying attention is probably Burn in your memory. What this love. Your blue phenomenon was and it was absolutely ahead of time. Arguably the apex of the of the excitement that was this is franchise. Plenty of of of nadir's of course Along the way. But you have to remember that the afl when it was started the houston. Oilers were one of the franchises that helped launch that leak and we get into one of the chief protagonists. maybe actually antagonists as we get into Into the guy but adams for sure Was there at the beginning. And they're through the entirety of this team as well as how it went to to To tennessee ultimately He is The good guy certainly in the beginning years for sure Winning to afl championships early on And kind of making a mark for pro football in houston when there was none prior Certainly got got gets all the accolades. I guess around. I love you. Blue air for sure. But look he was also very enmeshed and hands-on shall we say to a fault for the majority of the years otherwise and I would argue that. Essentially not unlike the title of fowler's book The experience of being an oilers fan was largely. I wouldn't say necessarily lamentable but certainly heartbreaking and disappointing especially when They were tantalisingly close to simplisafe. Gloria that Frankly sort of alluded them not only in the love blue era but certainly thereafter as. Well we get into all of that.

"The Oilers and the bills let's get you back to Howard David and Pat Haden for the final six minutes of the third quarter Houston up thirty five to seventeen but trying to prevent a third straight bills touchdown buffalo begins the possession with the ball at their own forty one yard line this is what he used to do with our defense must make something happen and it's hard to believe he could say that with a thirty five seventeen game but you're right right gears it out down the right side of his knees is made by teams that's good first to the day when the thirty six year old fifteen year program Stanford well you know that the bills are doing something smart to they're trying to get as much production as they as they can in this quarter because they do or throwing down within twenty no no one in the back nobody because they know that fourth quarter they're gonna have to throw against it and Dr Kenneth Davis running left that he is knocked down a media outlet that's a nice play by Sean Jones it is nine year from northeastern he spent four years with the raiders before coming to the Houston Oilers and he has been on a roll about the last half a dozen games he's had five sacks well you think about Sean Jones and ray Childress and Lee Williams and Williams all or they have some pretty good defensive lineman Jeff home was injured unable to play during the playoffs but did they get some nice depth and defensive line right got every shot gun second down the nine steps up with a pocket airs it out deep down the right side but there's a flag on the play there was a P. B. old we did all the against that would be against the bills number seventy nine all four what you must be seventy five yeah there is going to be seventy nine buffalo that I'm aware of unless they brought in a ringer it's a big big deal he was but Howard Ballard the the right tail number seventy five given the relatively free of penalty it's only the third penalty against buffalo for fifteen yards so it will be second down in fourteen doubtful Frank Reich in relief of the injured Jim Kelly question as to whether or not Kelly could play beyond this week or not may be a moot point because the Houston Oilers leave thirty five seventeen they have a thirty five to three lead and even Jack Pardee with eighteen point cushion has to be a little bit nervous right now the buffalo get another score here before this third quarter resented it's then becomes an eleven point game mmhm in the last fourteen games in the AFC playoff history home teams won fourteen times and right now the home team is behind it thirty five seventy and as we said they're trying to squeeze as much out of this quarter as they can when they're going down wind right got a shot going back to pass switch it out of the backfield Candice Davis the screen pass inside according to the thirty five thirty we need his a bit of the rain and read this back to make the hit want to tell you how we're down or got away with a hold on William fuller as he was rushing the passer a good screen pass by the bills they're one of the best Minnesota Vikings a good screen team all the news many yesterday in their loss to the Redskins that was a well set up screen on the right side to Kenneth Davis at the nineteen yard game for buffalo first and ten of the twenty six at right back role model they're all the same Houston ages in the next two hours absolutely bring a seat right now he was used to open on that play and what they're doing to these very aggressive boiler defensive backs to double moves on he Jerry gray the second time today for touchdowns on a double you figure out you go up and you're wide open Steve Christie for the extra point what I need to go to the book today bills have scored three unanswered touchdowns here the third this is after going down by the greatest episode thirty five degree a minute forty one seconds into the third quarter what a big downloaders separate supported with fifty eight yards with a touchdown and made a thirty five to three you probably going to stick a fork in buffalo because they would be done I think the back with three straight scoring yeah I give them some subreddit they really have Frank Reich is look like a different quarterback he's gotten excellent protection it's been a double cut loose the Jerry gray twice now touchdowns the same rule receiver goes down thanks for the many close over the top with a touchdown in as I pointed out as I said this game was over you over yet but I still think the visitors leading by eleven points this is gonna take two touchdowns and remember they still have more room but I think what's key for the orders right now is not is what your mood is trying to get something going with Paul runs a white there is a white you'd like to get the crowd settled down a little bit you know they're going to be very loud the next time war movie jobs in the field it's going to be difficult to pull this but maybe we could squeeze out a first down or two on the ground with the original white white of down break right total fourteen three hundred and seventy one yards two touchdowns in the third quarter the Houston Oilers watch Steve Christy Dr Beale fielded by letting them know we're going to go through to the end zone and hill down in the end zone they'll bring it out to the twenty yard line but there is no question at the Houston Oilers are seeking right now even though they have an eleven point lead remember how good both little has been at home over the last number of years yes they lost two games here this year but the three previous years they had not lost a home game so now the Houston Oilers twelve seed Warren moon delivered nearly a perfect pass misfired on only three passes out of twenty two that he threw in the first half recording played this only had the ball group to position and what was the defense's position this is the third year second offensive possession back to the school bills thirteen yeah yeah we do thank you S. plans is it makes the connection the web's the scenarios but that amounted to twenty seven yard line there is a white was upset the backfield that's going to be a guest room Lindsey Whitehead moved up to hear the audible here the snap count got caught movie illegals as you need a big play this game as important as talents his confidence right now this buffalo team their offense has given the defense confidence you're you're absolutely right but there's no reason why the order offense should feel confident the way they played the first half but you're absolutely right the adrenaline is flowing the report they're moving quickly on defense and the players on the sidelines of the crowd seventy one should rich stadium where we need to do a lot worse than fifty eight does it deep down the middle we change the twenty twenty three yes it makes in some way Houston twenty a sixteen yard would turn in regionals with most interceptions in the NFL this year where they just going to mention any return to those nine interceptions for touchdowns though this wasn't the receiver's fault he was over the head of Webster slaughter just put a hand on it on it in Henry Jones well in a very good strong safety because he's played very good close to the line of scrimmage in the run defense throughout the year and then it just terrific in pass defense intercepted his night mass read walked in to the right B. B. to the left Kenneth Davis stays in as a running back he gets the ball running right to about the twenty one maybe the twenty yard line now three and a half to go the third quarter bills don't have to hurry right now they get a touch down here get a whole quarter to play even if we get a field goal quickly precisely precisely it inflicted over the Houston oiler defense what they need to do is is two things one make sure they don't score a touchdown forced the field goal attempt what more even more poorly perhaps trying to force the turnover forced a fumble get somebody in right speaks in the first half they put a lot of pressure on them they have not said second in seven the lady and Dr Kenneth Davis running right slipped out of one tackle but not the second he gets a couple who about the eighteen yard line is pulled down by Al Smith the low bar laden what day Kenneth Davis yeah running awfully hard and now you come up to a situation which is now third in five again though the Houston orders leading thirty five to twenty four to thirty remaining in the third quarter I mean this is a download on thirty five over the last couple years Andre Reid has owned hello readers lined up all the right ones didn't beat me to the left and right right loading the signals takes the snap drops back to pass with time scribbles to the right looking around and throws it to the ground do almost avoid Sacchi at Kenneth Davis in the neighborhood and we'll see if Marv levy sensible field goal team has to I haven't seen any movement yet by the field goal unit the operative unit is still out on the field I don't know what to do let's see it's eleven point game how to kick a field goal is still down but by two scores yeah so you write that they need to go for here which they will know if that was the thought process though maybe take two runs on thirty five now.

"Who was politely a defensive liability and so you have essentially this double boost of your EA stats if you on right like your defense has gotten better amongst your forward lines and your defensive pairings and I think that plays a huge role in all all of a sudden winning five in a row at home? Chew on this nugget Chompers Ready Slava Voinov. What number did he were? Sean Walker the number. Does he want coincidence. And Jack Johnson s numbered three and two six linus to. Yeah there's something in there We'll leave it at that. Yeah so so. You're going through doubt if you're you're out. He played the game. I'm going with Jack. I'm going with Jonathan Quick because at the end of the day this after all that. Yeah okay because this season is about. We said this season about answering questions nations and learning lessons and teaching the kids and the reality is you can't learn getler nothing if the puck in the back of your net. Every time he turned around and there were about a good coach. Show me a good goalie. L. Show you good coach And I think the strong play of Jonathan Quick over the last five games again we reference. Yeah okay it's Chicago. Yeah okay as Minnesota Yeah Case Troy but Vegas. It's a close game. They win it. You know the the goal the game winning goal late and Jonathan Quick holds on and in this game never really questioned Donovan. Quick I mean I mean okay. He didn't shut them out but he's basically shut them down. I mean and it's not like this was a night that edmunds and took off like they were writing. They were trying right but it was never in doubt. I don't think he's ever. I mean there was two zero one one of those three one. No Jackley Josh. One hundred percent right. He said he leaned back and he said look. Yeah Yeah two goal lead is the worst. How you know Blah Blah but when you've got rice idle and mcdavid on the other teams seven goal lead to nothing is essentially zero all because I can minutes shifts to show uh-huh yeah? I think we are going to wrap it up on that. Unless there's any parting words you WANNA leave King signs with. Thanks for having me.

Have some brilliant hockey minds and teddy pursell in about half of genius from real genius hockey talk. And that's what you're going to be getting on this all star week, we act we've yet to name it as as of right now, and we're recording. And we're going to have Brett name off some of the names that have been sent into us so RA want you to kick us off. I liked hashtag chick. Let's go west get any love producer to eager granola. What's up guy? What's up boys going on going on while while we slept? Big news Lau, maybe if I was sleeping and the rest is, but pita sure Elliott as many people have been expected for awhile is fired as the general manager of the Oilers been a longtime common at a lot of disastrous moves there. We can we can name them. I will probably get this Jose by time with. But what the teddy would you take? Pita Shirley, finally getting kin. Never he was nice to males with them for about a year and a half an Emerson. He was open with me of the teams. I was gonna get traded to at the deadline. But you know, you always feel bad when someone gets gas like that especially a couple of years ago. It seemed like the new rink two boys were back there in the playoffs. They did. Well, they lost in Anaheim and seven I think in the second round. And then all of a sudden, it's like me and we're talking about today. It's right back to the basement again where they've been for so long and from playing there like it's never fun on care. How much money you're making your plan in the NHL? We're also competitive you wanna win. And when you're losing like that. And getting embarrassed it's you feel bad for the fans, you feel bad for the organization that has you there, and you feel bad for each other. But I mean, you gotta get out of it some way, and I guess they thought that cannon Pistol Pete was the first step. I did you see mcdavid quote two days ago, who is something of if you don't believe in this group to get out of this locker, and I'm like, I don't know if he knows of people guys players, they're people that don't believe in that team. But it was it was it had to be done. I mean, it's a bit said to me this morning in the shower goes, can you believe the Edmonton Oilers the worst team in the league again, like it's it still is the same way. Like, it's just it's shocking to see the best player in the world. And be that team. What I mean? And then excuses are all well, Malcolm, Malcolm cross enough to play together. We'll why does mcdavid Android software together. They're both nasty. They can both run a line one too. Like they gotta get players for those guys to play with..

"Offs that some of the teams around them. Jeff is don't have few things conspiring against the Edmonton Oilers. One of them is the Pacific all of a sudden is getting real good at the top. Right. So we're looking at best case, of course, wild card for the Oilers, but all of Calgary's been hot Vegas might be the hottest team in the NHL the best team playing right now, San Jose Sharks. Have been dismantling teams on the regular. We'll talk with Erik Carlsson logo later on the podcast. So that's all conspiring against Edmonton. And again, I mentioned off the top of was conspiring about them compounding all of this. I would imagine weighing heavy on the psyche of the Oilers an oil fans Calgary's, really good. Calgary's a really really good team. And it's tough to watch your provincial rival thrive like this. When you have the best player in the NHL. And you can't get it in the right gear. I would say that is a factor. But to me the frustration build up has been coming along time for that. I mean, that's just probably for their fans and added kick in the teeth. But I don't know if that's as big a factor, maybe internally or even on social media than than some of the other things like I said earlier, Jeff you think they were fifty points out of the playoffs. And they're they're right. Their social media. I think is I always am careful about how much weight to put into it. What percentage of the public has a Twitter account? It's like twenty twenty percent of the people have a Twitter account. And I think Twitter has certain leanings. Both politically in terms of who uses it. But if you thought that everybody had a Twitter account, you would think that there would be riots in the streets of and right now. And there is there's no question that there's a lack of consumer confidence in what the orders are doing. Right and Kenya. Scott got in there, and you breathe a little bit of life into the team. He got them going. He's still has them in the race. Even though it sure looks like a Mirage. I just see a fan base that has no belief in what the organization is going to do. What's the saying? If you start listening to your fans who never them. Yeah. So I do understand that felt bad for last night. Even though he finally scored Lucia I just hope that he's not on social media. And if he has a hope he wasn't reading it last night. It's supposed to be going on out there finally scores in North America. Scored the goal in the preseason overseas. Finding scores our goal, and it is just that's the excuse to get this thick out for the pinata. And it was have a go at Milan Luchik. And if you can religious, you know, exactly what he said Africa scored the goal and getting back to the bench and all the afterwards was him getting starched on Twitter. That's this team. That's been false started outside of the stretch. When Hitchcock I took over so many different times this year when you have a team that gets false started like that. Maybe you shouldn't be surprised at that reaction. It is the paper anniversary so read the piece of paper up to GMC terrain, by the way, you mentioned I hope cheese on social media. Yeah. I hope is family. Im- isn't telling him what is said on social media because that's the worst. I always tell relatives and friends don't tell people what set about the Monte or social media because you always make it worse..

"And the thing is I started to figure out is there other ways I could do it says start using the team names. I do it as a jumble. Remember the old guy? I I had the jumbles my dad loved those skit there's lots to play. It's a blank canvas blank. Campbell's Habla Raza. I believe is how they refer to it. So good for you committed to its right off the bat before we get into the into the podcast. We have a lot of really good ask through, by the way. Like, she's pretty smart. I don't know her at all by she's got a pretty bright future. Like, I say don't know or at all I'm a little bit familiar with her work. But people tell me, she's she's very bright future. You know, you're good. When you vanish. Yes. She's an expert person that might show for the eagles vanish from hockey Twitter. I'm a big believer in the right? People are always watching. And I think they've been watching her who's been watching the Edmonton Oilers everybody a lot of our ask thirty ones and can't get to all of them. But a lot of them evolve around the Edmonton Oilers and what to do with the team. What's happening with the general manager? How you feeling if you're Connor mcdavid what's happening with Edmonson right now as record this podcast. They just got stomped seven to by the San Jose Sharks after walking into Anaheim and winning four nothing after getting curbs not the night before against the Los Angeles Kings. California's been an interesting trip again for Edmonton. And they'd beat Arizona to which was a game. They have to have this is their year. Jeff there's six of the next seven or at home and the only road game. I believe is Vancouver. And of the seven teams, they're playing the only ones that currently stand a playoff position or buffalo and Calgary they have to make their move here. You think they were fifty points out the way people are talking about them. They're two points out. But what's going on? Edmonton says to me that this is an organization saying for lots of different reasons missing the playoffs are not an option. Sometimes you see. Team lurching the way they are an organization will say this is not our year, and we're not going to waste assets or warrior but assets to try just get get in. That's not what's going. I Admiral tin, and I think there's two reasons number one. They've got luxury suites and stuff that are up. Some of them were on a three year term this is year three. So I think there's that that organization understood what a playoff run could do for them financially when they were there two years ago, and they went seven games with Anaheim in the second round. I think you get a bit seduced by that. But between that and the sweets. I think there's that and number two jobs are on the line. And anytime jobs are on the line people do things that they wouldn't normally do so between those two forces. There is an added level of importance to make the play..

"I'd have to look into it as far as the logistics of that happening. But shouldn't it be the case? Anyway, Winnipeg's dot their team back. Let's forget about Atlanta. No offense to their fans. But that team has done. Nobody seemed overly interested in. Anyway, I called a couple of games they're eight thousand fans in the building and five thousand of ranger fans. That's just a fact so I would like to see that. But you don't see it necessarily with the Houston Oilers, Houston Oilers in the NFL still are part of Tennessee's history. Even though Houston did get a team back in the Texans. But they didn't take the Orlando took the Texans name. So that's a little bit different my head spinning right now. But Ricky, you're absolutely right. If the coyotes moved to Houston than Winnipeg should get the coyotes history. Absolutely, Tom, where's the love for Mitch Monir at the all star game. He's not even a bailable to vote for the last man in what else do you think? Who who else? Do you think that's not? Well, I guess that. Kreider snubbed should be the last man vote for the Rangers not match to Carello ridiculous. Okay. Kabul. Mary got snubbed he should be in the all star game. But he's at least got a chance to get into the last vote Patrick line either. Same thing has a chance again of last Jeff Skinner has a chance to get into the last vote. However, you only pick one guy from each of the divisions. So you can't pick multiple guys from each division. So that's gonna make it difficult for mourner to get in like if you want if you even have more energy was there, if if Skinner gets the vote will then that's going to put an end to anybody getting in from that division looking at the divisions. Now trying to get it all together here you were the division in question. We're talking about is the Atlantic Division. All right. So Morgan Riley who was not a bad selection for Toronto, man. The Leafs are just Laden with talent. That's the problem. I probably would have martyr heteronomy, but Riley's had a great year. He's also leading all defensemen in scoring at least the last I checked, but if you've oats Skinner in will then Briley can't go in because you only get one vote one guy from the division. So that puts you know Skinner in buffalo. Maybe it makes it difficult. You know, the metropolitan division Palmeri deserves to be in the in the in the all star game representing the New Jersey Devils, not Taylor hall, but he's not going to have a chance to get voted in Tang in Pittsburgh or Backstrom in Washington is definitely going to get the Don why is land is Scott getting vote, and he was on the best line in the NHL saying there were Patrick line. It does get frustrating. Even though I keep saying, I don't care. It does get frustrating. Jim says when is Chris tangoing to get the respect he deserves? It's a great question. I was thinking about this and talking about what David only one was calling the game the other night. Pittsburgh's got so much talent. It's easy to get lost. Right. Like, you feel bad for getting Malcolm have Malcolm's on any other team. He's their best player and he's getting his do. But he's on the same team is Sidney Crosby. So Sydney's going to get all the credit Sydney is going to get all the love Sydney's going to get all the conversation. He's got to be the second best team. He's one of the top five players in the league's not even the best player in his own team. Then you look at Phil kessel Phil Kessels a tremendous player all year about him is trade. Rumors. All right. And then you've got crystal Tang who sees the ice better than maybe any defenseman in the league? All right guys got a tremendous shot. Tremendous speed. You don't talk about why. Because you too busy talking about Crosby Malcolm castle. You know, the goaltending situation. It's amazing. Did you can get lost their in Pittsburgh with all the firepower and all the star power. But anybody who's anybody understands the importance of crisslow Tang on that team. He's by far their best defenceman, and he gives them a chance to win every single night on that blue line, which is something a lot of teams don't have..
