"Toronto and most of the games Awesome against the Florida Panthers but we need to use our north south where we get it in deep you know get behind the defenseman cycle of a puck and it'll create scoring chances and when we do that the lightning are tough to beat But like I said we've got to be we've got to know who's on the ice I mean there's certain guys you would know when we played ray bourque or Paul Coffey or Al McGinnis Those guys are dangerous They can turn a series around in a period Scoring two goals So you know Adam Fox to me as a target I mean you can sit here and say hey we want to be nice No you can't be nice There is no nice and hockey You have to take them hit them hard same as some of the other floors you know Panera and his vanger ball We've got to knock them off the skates and control the game If we control those guys I think we've got a great chance to win because we're going to get some opportunities unsure and we'll make them pay Yeah and he's been good but he hasn't had to be great And he's come up with those timely saves I think the stop he had on stamkos one of his one one In game number two he stopped stamp cost twice in front in game number one when it was a two one game at that point in time that could have tied the game momentum shifting type of saves But having said everything we've just talked about is it too simplistic to sit here and say puck management has been the number one issue for this team We know sometimes the lightning's toughest enemy is themself They look in the mirror sometimes and it's the areas of the ice that you're turning the puck over It's the inability to connect on passes which they're a fast team but when you can't execute it at that pace you look like a slow team And they've looked slow at some point during these two games So is it too simplistic from my point of view to sit here and say that it's just been puck management that's been the biggest issue for this team Yeah you know I think it is And I think when you look at it we're just trying to make we're.

"You're right. They just eat it up there. Yeah. And you guys had the rivals with Pittsburgh. Those were big rivals, and they still is. It's one of the best rallies I think. And then HL. Is it tough to get associated off as after you will be in a head coach for the last four years? I don't want to say insulting, but it's kind of like shit, man. I was just a head coach. No, it's not insulting, but I have a really a lot of respect for assistant coaches associate coaches. A lot of respect because you got to do the shit work. You got to do the it's more work, right? It's more work and you really got to put the little fires out for the head coach. That's a really good assistant coach. We always talk about pigeon. You play this guy's a pigeon assistant coach. And I remember telling Sid Sid those story, I said, if I ever become a pigeon assistant coach, just let me know. Because I'll quit. I'll go do something else. I've never any player ever calls me a pigeon. Well, I think he kind of did. When he told you to change your suit. That was one of the most, that just goes to show not only his superstition, but that was an all timer. And you told it on the TNT broadcast. For those of you who haven't heard it, the floor is now yours. You play with them. Mister superstition. What round was this? Where were you guys at the point? We were playing Tampa. And I hope what you said it was new. It was beautiful. It was like $1600 nice blue sea. It was 5, 6 years ago. So I was kind of proud of that thing. And I did wear, I don't remember when a loop, but I remember we lost these two games. I had that suit on. And he pulled me off the bus. What's up, man? Some of the power play breakout, some about, you know, should we switch maybe the flankers? What do you want? No, can you change your story? And I said, absolutely. And you're like, hey, can I mix up the shirt tight combo? And maybe keep the suit. He's like, man. And whatever it takes to win. When city Crosby asks you to do something you're going to do it. But with you running the power play on that team, I mean, you got Phil, you got Gino, you got sick. I'm not going to say big egos, but it's guys who are all pretty confident in themselves. So you really work on just trying to manage personalities in a way. Yeah. I think we got some stretches where guys are yelling at you. And I love that though. Guys are coming off tangers yelling at Gino Gino wants the puck. Sid's mad because Gino is not going in the middle. But that's the stuff you go through. The maturity of it, but when the game was on the line, man, I mean, I stayed out of their way. I mean, these guys, that's to me is a good power play. It's two, two, 6 minutes left, or four minutes left in the game, and you got that power play. We scored a lot of times during that situation. You're up four to one. You get a power play. You go for three, nobody really. I don't really care about percentages. I care about when the pressure's on. And those guys delivered most times. I think one of the more famous clips was a genome and kessel going at it on the bench. Oh yeah. And that was a fire that you ended up putting it out. You mentioned, these are big moments, man. Even though the egos are there, you can't let them take over and overtake the team, especially when you're in the midst of a cup run. Yeah, that's one thing I loved about Sully Mike Sullivan. You know, he's a great coach. He loved that. He calls it juice. It's okay. There's a different way to bark with a guy. You know, Taylor was great because, you know, you would take a little shit from them. He would take shit, but you put them as he grew and got older, he did it for the defense. He goes, you know, I'm not saying sit or anything, but the forge. Give us the puck. We all do that. Hey, move the pocket. Get the fucking puck up, you know, whatever. And he would jump in and say, you guys start fact checking. So he would protect the younger guys. And I told tanger, that's great. Start screaming back up at those guys. And I think that helps the young guys. I really does. Do you actually told another story on the broadcast? Was it when you were in with Los Angeles with Paul Coffey and Wayne? And Wayne, when he was Barker. No, so no, Paul Coffey was Edmonton and they did the same thing. They bitch and complain and gretz wasn't bitching to cough not getting the puck. So coughs told me great skater. They need a Mira type around the net. And he saw threats up to Bill. He threw it about four inches and hit him right in the skate and Wayne, you know, he's got that high, what are you doing? So they go to the bench and he started yelling at cough and conflict and he goes, I can do this all night. So I love that. They used to do that all the time. They used to get their fights and stuff like that on the bench too. And I think to win, you got to get you have to have those arguments. Therapy is a nice guy and everybody gets along. You don't win. I don't think. Yeah, a couple fuck you matches to get a Stanley Cup ring, all right? It's true. Yeah, I would know, but I drank out of a few times, didn't win a call. We always like to go back to beginner guy's career as Rick and you were 6 round pick like I mentioned. When did possible pro care first come on your radar? How old were you? When did you stop thinking, okay, I can play in the NHL. Yeah, you know, that's a good question. I think in my second year, junior,.

"Maybe that's because their teams coming out so hard and maybe we had a poor start, but if you were to look at it like and think, when would you actually be affected by the altitude? It would be later in the game. Having said that, I think Colorado just had a real slow start and kind of figured it out. I don't know. None of the leafs guys, I don't think they mentioned like feeling brutal as the game went on. Colorado just took over and first thing, I got to give it the leafs of credit. I had no idea that they're the least penalized team in the league. That is a stat that is very nice to be able to call your team that because in a sense like the rest of the rest of the team can really concentrate on getting their roles, getting the first second third, fourth line out there without having penalties disrupt the whole chemistry with line matching and things like that. So I didn't know that. But even going up against Colorado, it kind of shows that you're never really safe. I mean, three zero against them are actually the one that's really gotten me on three nothing now. It's like, doesn't mean anything. It's the new to nothing. You know how I guess it's just more of the new 20s? Well, we were in Minnesota. I had what game was that already? We would bet against each other. We were on opposite sides. It was Nashville, Washington. And Washington got up three nothing, right? Yeah. That's right, yeah. When we were interviewing Billy Garrett dropped by the ladies, this is perfect, boom, three three. So I know as confident as leafs fans probably were, all of a sudden, with that offense and what they can do, it's like you're never out of it as a fan or player. The one guy I keep watching and you talk about my car in Gerard, this devonte is unreal. And what's interesting is he doesn't, I can't believe the islanders got rid of him, like looking back now, I was like, I'm surprised that they didn't really notice all right. This is a guy like legit 25 minutes, top two defensemen kept play against anyone could play offensively and his solid defense 'cause how well he skates so he gets the OT winner, but he was creating the entire time. The other thing I noticed in the game, besides Matthews two goals, the first one was he kind of tried to redirect it and then got it back, empty net backhand easy. The next one, he was pissed off. He wanted a penalty called on, forget who was covering him at the point instead he goes and buries one bar and that was sick. So he gets two goals, which he's making it look easy as he always does. But the guy that I watched and the two passes he made was rotten in from beneath the goal line, but it was like stupid. So he had two assists, both of them used beneath the offensive goal line and he throws it in front. The first one was Landis Gaga ends up scoring it and even know it went in. And then the next one who's called the other one was a comp for who tie? Yes, short side. The cameraman couldn't even tell mccart got another shift on that. He got exactly a cargo. That's RIP this week. Holy shit, Colorado, fucking toe tag and cameramen. Yeah. I mean, did you see the fucking makar OT winner? We're going back from the marquee match up to the one against Chicago on the road. Our boy Kirby dock. Hey, bugger. Boys. I think it's happening anybody, buddy. Fuck that, yeah, that's a huge Paul coffee. Yeah, 'cause I think when Paul Coffey came about, you can't compare them to bob York because when Bobby ore came around at his peak, he was like leading the league and scoring. And nobody ever done that. So am I saying that it could never exist again? No, but I think it would be unfair to put them in Bobby or category unless unless he goes on a fucking heater of like four norrises and they win two or three cups and he gets like a con smythe in there. And he's talking, I think if he can consistently get to 30 goals a season as a defenseman in today's NHL, I think green did it when we were with Washington and it was fascinating and I remember he had those eastern stealths. I might be mistaken. Who's like the last defenseman to go back to back season scoring 30 goals? That's a good question. You know what I'm saying? It's very hard to duplicate, but he's a guy that as a defenseman right now is storing at a rate where he can put up 30 a season. But what could a defenseman even do to revolutionize the position in a way that I did? I mean, od took it to the south. That's almost something a guy could even do it for other. I don't know. I think given how good the game's gotten, it's gonna be impossible to ever rival Wayne as far as his ability to put up points and how he figured out the algorithm and how to kind of beat the system at the era that he did. That's kind of how it is, right? He just kind of found these holes and he was able to develop these tools in order to he didn't even have the hardest shot, but he had this kind of like sometimes you see in his old shot where he has this like pump fake where the way the goalies played back then they start sliding across and then all of a sudden a foot on the other side of the nets opened up. It's like, yeah, it's not fucking Ovechkin, TN one on right under the bar, like took in the fucking goalies ear off, but he figured out how to get it done. In 1985, 1986, Paul Coffey had 48 goals with 90 assists for a 138 points. Yeah, so I think that if as a defenseman, what do you do like the next year of the year before that was he getting more than 40 goals? And 83 84 he had 40 goals 8 6 assists. 26 points. I think in today's era, if you're scoring, if you can go on a rip of having like four or 5 years in a row, where you get 30 goals. I think that that's ridiculous. Green had green had 68 goals in a three year span. I think he went, he went 18, like 31, 19, right? I don't know if things exact years in a row, but that was, that was, I don't remember ever remember. It was fascinating. I remember it was I remember seeing him in the AHL right away in Hershey and he had the sickest toe drag too and basically I think my car's very similar to peak Mike green offensively while also being like faster, probably stronger. I mean, Mike green was, he didn't do much defense, but he didn't really have to at his peak. He was just so good with the puck. We have such a hard sock style too as gear wear. My car's got the similar tongues out look. Yeah, yeah, he's done that. But the same way with Paul Coffey in the same way with green with Ovechkin invasion, like when a car is able to do these things and you watch how he skates in his vision and his shot and then you see these forwards up front..

"Nhl history who have played for ten teams or more. Oh my god yeah. i don't know i. I used to kid. Paul coffey about that because he was oilers and pit in boston and carolina chicago. La you played for eight or nine. He's right there. Well let me take your misery because matthew schneider if he's the most hostal the biggest household name of the bunch. I don't think you're going to fare particularly well okay. so so. The guy's the leader former ottawa senator. Well he's a former every player every team mike cylinder played for twelve. Oh i remember mike soldier. Then you play for the sixty seven's to know he's a derringer or something like that. I don't know some something. Jer- i'm not sure so. And the other guys have all played for ten michelle petit. Jj dino oli okinawan. dominic more. Jim dowd matthew schneider lee stemp nak so those other guys that you get hit with the nickname suitcase. The ocoee trivia maybe their ego not bad not bad either really good or you're really hard to deal with one of the bunch of teams or teams. Wanna get radio still with hockey revisiting. a A very difficult story from the off season and was the arizona coyotes. I can't recall if they knew. I think they did know about it. At last year's draft in twenty twenty but they renounced their fourth round draft. Pick mitchell miller after a racially charged bullying incident from his quite distant past. I mean he's. He's eighteen years old and this happened when he's in grade eight. So what's that about thirty years early now. Four five years earlier so this racially charged bullying incident from his past came to light and he has. There's an update honey. His story someone is gonna let him play and that is going back to the u. s. h. l. And you'll get a chance to resume his hockey career going to be with the tri-city storm. And what do you think of that. Because i know there's lots of people on social media who loved the cancellation who loved you know. Not give anybody second chances. We either probably upset by this news today. Yeah so what's the lesson learnt rights so when you read the story you know a bullying story. What what happens is arizona's you know. Grabs him and the mother of the victim writes a letter to the team scathing letter but this kid going. Do you know who you're signing here right. And then the you know imagine how bad it is for the team to say okay. We want to get rid of them. We don't we don't wanna draft him or bring him on the team. Whatever that was from from this letter from mother and then i read.

"That's what they mean when they say they want to unify the country. Um Well. Steve Yes, they When they say unify, they do mean submit. I mean, I think I've been very clear about that. That's true. Their version of unity is not all of us, coming together on on sort of mutually agreeable positions and letting bygones be bygones. You know, forgetting the past and moving forward together the future. Their version of unity is you Republicans. You trump voters air bad. Admit your bad. Let us make all the decisions. Shut your mouths. And maybe we won't continue to try to purge you from American society. Not a really good unity path. I got to say I'm not. I'm not feeling overwhelmed with all the unity you know, the bite administration hasn't felt like slipping into a warm bath of unity. That's for sure. It Zbig or, like Eating a unity salad. And all of a sudden you realize you're chewing on like a scabby band Aid. You're like, Whoa! Wow, that get it. It's not good. It's not good. I know those gross. I'm sorry, but You know? This is not what we This is not what we were sold. Although I know that you we didn't think that it would be different, But the American people in the pitch from Biden was a president for everybody. Bring everybody together. We're all gonna be We're all going to be friends. And sure enough, um new, That's not that's not the way they're actually approaching this thing. Chris During the Friday roll call, Buck alluded to Wayne Gretzky's physical stature. And a level we get, like hockey writings and mark alluded to Wayne Gretzky's impressive skills, the hockey player but Mark left out the two most impressive traits of Gretzky. He was deceptively fast, but Glenn Anderson and Paul Coffey were faster. He had a hard slap shot, but his two most impressive traits were his work ethic and above all his hockey accurate. Watching Gretzky was like watching an impresario. He would go to places on the ice where the park would eventually be not where it Woz. He and the Oilers pioneer the modern day defensive zone, break out. And Gretzky made playing behind the net. A dangerous proposition for defense is in the annals of professional athletes on Lee, Michael Jordan and Pele can be remotely compared to his effect on professional hockey. Rooster mark. It's like it's like Chris rode in and Greek as far as I'm concerned, so I passed this one to you. Hold on, say that name again. Hey, Les Paylor. Yeah, you said Pele. Why didn't you did? Paley. Whatever you've heard of that person before the soccer player I know soccer. I don't like soccer. But I mean, you all right, Do the jet ski make the Gretzky's The smart words about the grill? Agree with everything, he said. You know, this is this is a political talk show. It's not a In their party show, so I don't go is in depth and make big bucks a head spin on guys gloss over, so I'm not gonna do that on the show. But, yes, I groove everything you said there's about 100 reasons Why Gretzky plus the best player ever probably Who is this? Glenn Anderson and Paul Coffey, close to his teammates. His lightnings. Oh, really? Okay. Interesting. Very cool. I n um when we were told to believe the science I can on Lee 0.2 thalidomide as a creation of science, after which everything can be viewed through the lens of skepticism.

"Point project sports. And whatever you were supposed to tell me about. I interrupted you the last time. You're supposed to tell me about the rookie cards like when you re you. Bring up this gretzky. Her one point three mary card. I don't know if you gave me a price on. But what guys stevie like gordie howe when the rocket rashard. Howie morenz all these guys from from the sixties fifties with a rookie. Well howie morenz would be way way before like he. He'd be playing in the twenties and thirties. I believe but i mean the that there was not many hockey cards prior to nineteen. I think it's for boy. Fifty one. I think where Series set called parkhurst affectionately known as parke's right. They basically had the first mass produce hockey cards set and Yeah we've talked about this for my dad left me that set not an. It's not completed because the gordie howe. Rookie card is in that. Set rocket rashard anybody who was a star from nineteen thirty five onward that was still active in nineteen fifty one. Well that sets suddenly was everybody's rookie card. The whole set is a rookie card. So like i say gordie howe. I don't have his number in front of me. Exactly what his card would be worth. Probably can't find it in mint condition. It's probably about one third the size of today's cards as well and Yeah but i. I guess i don't know if it's will the the gordy while the collectible thing f. It's not quite complete but thing. Yeah i've got Is only sixteen games and There's about one hundred cards in probably something like that and I'd say my set. We worth I don't know two three thousand dollars. Wow a lot of commons. Most of them. I mean everyone would be worth about twenty bucks but some would be worth some. It'd be worth up to one hundred. I know a friend of mine is a bit of a dummy. He said he bought. He bought the got greedy and bought a putter. That was a off and was a real one. He my buddy told me he had one of those sets from way back when after the fifties and he said and it's really cool because it includes all eight teams in the nhl. I said i'd never happened. It's his yeah look at got all the guys from the minnesota north star. You get or you so that you get ripped off that bat. Stevie boy invite that guy jere auction. You'll buy anything the original eight. We all know the original eight unbelievable and at least if it's going to be the originally make it something like closer to stevie to the original six. Okay gimme gimme gimme something else even vancouver or maybe many. What's the next one. I don't know him so yeah all right. Let's say close with a couple of notes here One is a sad note from the nhl. Pierre la the former gm of the quebec nordiques in colorado avalanche has passed away at the age of seventy two and Pretty well regarded general manager in the league. He was the architect of both. The avalanche stanley. Cup wins one was in nineteen ninety six and the other in two thousand one and the biggest thing he ever did. Jimmy was get patrick. Wa out of montreal. I mean fleecing the haves in the deal while he was at it that was his gravy. Patrick wa was the difference maker obviously lequel. Also the guy that added ray bork in a trade with the boston bruins in two thousand and very quickly won a stanley cup. After bork arrived in denver as well brought in rob blake from la the following year so and apparently a great guy as well like Joe sakic talked about him today. Said he eddie. Unique bond with a guy played from in both nor deacon avalanche uniforms peer someone. I trusted very much right from the first time i met him. I'll always remember him as not only a great gm but even better person but the patrico often. We talked about recently Because it was the twenty fifth anniversary of the trade and this is another thing. I didn't realize Was fairly was. Patrick was agent for several seasons before he became a gm in the league in the early nineties. So he i would think would probably have inside. Information about advocate was discontent in montreal. And knowing that you know what is probably time to go fishing in montreal right and it is no. It's not a. it's not a shock. Knowing that background that he was the one that was able to pull off the deal. Two halves well hockey minds right or like you right that. That's very cool background. Story that thing for sure for sure because it was twenty five twenty five years ago. Patrick wa connection in montreal bench connection year. Stevie my kid says spas attack member. That's don't don't have us mas- okay. Alright listen you come on patrick. You don't need to take a spouse okay. i'll tell you. What though steve. I read the piece you sent me today about parallel qua- and a lot of it was a big part of it was from joel sack and in a time where a lot of people's particular social media or under the microscope. You know speaking of hot guys like john tortorella that shift that goes viral. But what this guy says. The i go way back before socialists. Alan iverson and some of these other guys who but what a terrible way to go out tortorella not so much right. But i when i read all that stuff about mccaw. I said what what a fantastic way to go out. You know to have know an iconic hockey player. Like joe sack. Who's of course the front office guy right with colorado and i read that stuff and you could hear the the how genuine he was in his comments and a lot of it had nothing to do with hockey how he trusted the guy and spent like porno fantastic off the ice and i sort of raise the glass and to a guy where it looks like. He was a complete and utter stranger to controversy. You know You know. And and i mean that even thinking of the patrick watery. I don't know. I don't know if i might be wrong but from everything i read today. What a great way to go on fantastic said some nice things to say about him as well and think about it from two perspectives. The habits probably felt like. Oh my god we blew that deal. Peer got the better of us in that one with the patrick wa deal not to mention. The peer lequel was the general manager of the quebec. Nordiques probably the fiercest rival. I know toronto is a great rivalry and everything but nothing had the venom of the battle of quebec and yet the haves are right there saying pierre was. I'm amanda admired and respected by all. He was a great builder who left his mark on quebec. Hockey and I mean no one likes to speak ill of the dead anyway so it would be totally classless to come out and say you know that guy. Hey screwed us ban. Hey him you know. Obviously that's not going to happen but you can tell by the tone of some of these quotes whether it's sack where the haves that there was. Deep respect for pierre lacouer close today though with one of the weirder plays that seen in a long time in football you had The university of florida basically one of their best rivalries is against Lsu and florida totally blew the game so it happened saturday night during the fourth quarter. The games tied at thirty four and number. Six florida appear to force. Lsu into a fourth down. That is until florida's. Marco wilson picked up an lsu players shoe and threw it down the field so would have been a punting situation..

People are always looking for stuff like that to engage on and And one of the things. I put out there Myself late last week was the wayne gretzky card. We talked about that in recent episode. Right that it might sell over a million dollars at that. That was ridiculous but the reality is there's only two that are graded a perfect ten and one of them was up for auction and in fact it did go for over a million dollars so i put it out there on twitter as a result of that. Would you pay a million dollars for the gretzky card. And then not only did people react directly to it but they talked about alma. God Gretzky card in the spokes of my bike. And oh my god my mom throughout that card and and also saying even if even if i was a billionaire i wouldn't spend a million dollars on a card a might go by five houses for homeless people or something. Well there's there's always that but in a perfect world then nobody would spend any money on luxury items you know at one point one point three mill or something like that. Yeah it was a it was basically just over a million so one point seven five million but then you have to add the buyer this american dollars. You have to have the buyer's premium as well so. The auction house is getting some serious though as well so it ends up going for one point two nine million. Us as going auction house a smooth two hundred fifteen grand for putting a freaking piece of cardboard an image of it up on your auction site and you get to fifteen for that. Not bad right right. Well we had a guy. On right. The spin ables mark rubin who owns a sports memorabilia card collecting store new york city. And it's really weird. That be because i don't think the story broke. We interviewed him a couple of weeks ago. And i don't think the gretzky broke but the the story was you brought it up the story. Was that the collectible thing is going through the roof. Since the pandemic and i couldn't think of the last thing in the world i would think of that would do well during a pandemic with all the economic crushing with would be a sports cards collectible but but it is and then well these guys decide to launch that thing right in the middle of it again. It's only to one of two copies That get the what they call. A jam meant ten grade and talk about inflation. This same card sold in twenty sixteen in order to win for. They're like half dome even a third. I should say four hundred sixty five thousand dollars in twenty sixteen. So it's a gain of eight hundred twenty five k. in less than five years. And yeah i i guess it comes down to two kinds of collectors collectors with money. And they're the ones that Will step up and do crazy things like this and by these insanely expensive cards. And then there's the average. Joe who during covid is bored out of his mind and decides to dust off his old cards. Take a walk down memory lane get into nostalgia of things. So i guess that's the bottom line and Both of them are doing the same thing. Bored out of their minds and de reliving their childhoods. It's just the one has a as the wherewithal to do stuff like this. There was also a top car. Jim because this was an old peachy card which i think for most canadian kids. That's all you had the tops version. Was i think generally in america. It also only has two graded ten cards in the gretzky rookie and it also set a record. That card Sold for seven hundred k. So i don't know what the differences but the opec one went to for about five hundred thousand dollars more but yeah the seller did well in both cases know this. I'm not embellishing. This tv as i'm vin prone to do But if i had my shit together Let me let me think here before. I say this but yeah this is probably true if i had my shit together steve. I probably coulda had three to four million dollars. Where the stuff. When i was a when i moved out here and started hanging with the oilers. Maybe i mean that. Might that might be embellished a bit. But i was never i was never a collector of of that kind of stuff and and i always people are paying the ass when when i was around all those guys you know i get it though. I understand people. People are brought to their knees man trying to get autographs flood. You coulda done very very well if i were your consultant. Like if you. And i were doing morning sports radio and you had all the same access to those oilers of the day. Yes i would have ensured that you were Plucking this and plucking that just favors saying steal anything but yeah. There's lots of opportunity for sure i before. Get away from though. I wanted to mention that Because you know again. We're only dealing with a ten grade on this gretzky rookie card. How many how would you say. are graded nine in the world. Right now I've.

"Black Hawks And Oilers in ad Mint on a sheet of ice at 5 45 this afternoon, a great way to start the weekend. Throw something on the grill. For Nice cocktail. Sit down and watch some hockey and baseball tonight. Love it. And I think Danny is supposed to be in the nineties tomorrow. Think it's supposed to be in the nineties. So that's pretty awesome. So I'm excited to watch this game tonight. Can they find a way to win a hockey game? One shift one shot one period at a time. Jeremy Collins and says he expects the Edmondson Oilers to be desperate desperation and be the best game of the series. So we've got to prepare for that. Hopefully, we've learned a lesson from are approaching game too. It's not just gonna happen. You ready from the start? All the little details of how the work ethic away from the box. We need it need ever going. Tio have a chance to win. If we do it, we have a good chance, but we've got to make sure preparing the right way starting today. So that was Jeremy Colistin That leads us to Adam Birds from NBC Sports Chicago and a Stanley Cup winner and he joins us now, Berta worry, Buddy. I'm good cat for you. I'm good. First of all, is there a new addition to the Burns family? There is we had a little baby girl about a month ago. So if I found a little tired today I wasn't up late. Doing? Having doing what you were probably getting to do last night. Have to drink. Hang out. Watch hockey. I was upbeat baby there, baby Changing diapers. I'm going for Dad of the year, cap. They're so good, and you got a chance to win it. Yeah, I was watching the Cubs and I do a recap on Twitter and Instagram after every game, and it was nine. Nothing in the fourth. I did the recap right down and said, I'm out and I grabbed a bottle of eagle rare and said, I'm drinking that. See you tomorrow and they lost 13. Perfect. So let's talk some hockey because Edmondson's goingto play Jerry called and just said I expect desperation from them. They've got great team speed, great special teams. What are the Hawks doing? That is neutralizing that I think it's what they're doing offensively. I think the game won their power play was ran at 50%. Their power play was awesome. Game two. It wasn't end up losing Game three. They're scoring goals. You're gonna have to score four goals cap to win the series. I still think I don't think we're going to see a 2 to 1 hockey game. Edmund Timmins got too much firepower up front. The Hawks. I don't want to say you've got to open it up because you've got to be solid defensively. Matchups are going to be really important for Jeremy. Trying to get Duncan Keith out there against David. As much as you can trying to get caves is lying out there. Probably Against McDavid's line and your fourth line, You know they're going to get matchups against McDavid's. Minton's coach, Dave Tippett, got MK David and dry sidle out there against the Hawks fourth line. Almost every multiple times of period. So your fourth line's gonna have to be really good defensively, But for me, it's just living your limit your mistakes defense. We don't give McDavid's freebies. He's going to get his opportunities. Don't give him easy ones make him earn it, But he's going to get chances and he's Ah, You know, Patrick Kane's My favorite player to watch Connor McDavid's is one bee. For me. It's pretty incredible. This is the best serious going on right now. Connor McDavid's goal the other night on Monday, the second goal that he scored when he was able. I don't know how he did this. He was able to increase his speed while settling down a bouncing park twice and went by Slater Kuku like it was me on skates and then roof that over Corey Crawford. That was one of the most magnificent goals I've seen in Yeah, me RU. He went right by like that Got. We've never seen a player as fast in hockey at people can go back and take. I've ovary. Nobody. Nobody skated fastest comic game and it's unfair. He's like he's playing a video game hit. Hit the fast and going 100 miles an hour around big time NHL defense, So it's It's fun to watch. You can't be a Zahhar fan. It's it's almost enjoying. It's probably like the rest of the league looking at Patrick Aidan what Jonathan tapes have done the last 15 years. Kind of like that. I just appreciate it. It's fun to watch. It's incredible. You're seeing one of the best players to ever play the game. In number 97 for the Oilers, so it's fun to watch. I know it's not fun to defend against, so I'm glad I don't have to go out there and play against a guy like him, But he's going to get chances just don't give him easy ones. Just, you know, try and make him go 200 feet. And the scary part about the segment continues. Their power plays the best power play the Edmondson Oilers 40 years. That's That's Gretzky's That's Gretzky time associate Paul Coffey. Yari Curry. So Dangerous team, but it's it's a fun game to watch. I've got friends cap that aren't hockey Fan letter saying these are watching this this Black Hawk Siri's. This is crazy hockey. It's back and forth. It's up and down its its goal after goal. This is awesome! So I think it's fun for hockey. Yeah, I'm thoroughly enjoying watching this and excited to watch tonight. What is your perspective on Corey Crawford, who deals with the shutdown? Oh, by the way, tested positive for Cove ID. He hadn't been on the ice in four months and two of the 1st 3 games. He's been really good night. Adam as my number one star the other night when it's 32 with six minutes to go. He's making too great a chance Saves that keep that game alive. I'm with cap. It takes 4.5 months off of doing anything and then go back and do it at the highest level of good luck and For him to take 4.5 months off than have to deal with this. Sickness. Hey, said he was wasn't that bad for him, But still, you gotta deal with it the stress of it wondering what's gonna happen. And almost like your pop back into a Stanley Cup playoff game. They arguably the best best player on the ice. It's Ah, it's It's incredible. He's incredible. He doesn't get enough. You know, you and I have talked about this for years cap that he doesn't get enough credit for being probably the top going the lead If you look across the board in the Stanley Cup playoffs right now, if you've got a Game seven or an elimination game. Is there another goal? You're taken other than Corey Crawford? I don't think so. But nonetheless, him and all these guys just in general to play at the level that these guys were playing that right now in this playoffs, the speed the intensity, the skill..

"How fast it was was and how quickly you had to make decisions and how quickly things could change. You know you go from offense and defense in a heartbeat. It was very much like basketball in that way To me and you know the the the thing I love the most about being unscathed the wind that you create in your face and it just it just feels so good for the out there on the ice yeah. Did you ever have a conversation Asian with Linda Cohn at ESPN about her for hockey. You know I haven't and I know she loves she loves talking. We worked at his pin for together for a very long time. Hi but I've only met her. A handful of times never had a chance to really have that conversation. I say that because she grew up on long island of course he was a big time islander fan and we have had long conversations about her passion for it and when she went to college she had the same experience what she had to do in order to play the sport so I just wanted to connected did I know you develop some friendships and hockey one with Wayne Gretzky. Tell me about that and playing with him. That was really fun. I had the opportunity go to his fantasy camp in two thousand four two thousand five. I can't recall it when it was still in the Phoenix and it was like a four day camp and you'd probably play two games a day and you had some practice but it was the court and all brothers were there. So zito Glenn Anderson Paul coffee which was incredible rescue was obviously there on the I and be you know you play growing up with a lot of really good players in college. I Played Men's Club at Carolina with a lot of former division one players and they were all very hey good but they are absolutely nothing compared to you all copy. I was like I'm a left wing. I was shamelessly hooking Paul coffey trying to slow down down just a little bit because someone else could come and help me out. I mean he was just tremendous one step and he'd be fifteen feet away from you and you had no chance and Gretzky. He just the way he could see. The ice was incredible. And I you know growing up. I'm not the biggest person in the world and I got away with being with the boys Inspired by being smarter and then a lot of them and getting myself to the right spot at the right time so it didn't matter if the other guys were faster I was there. I and I think Gretzky quickly realized this about me because I was always kind of parked back door and he could find a line to my Dick so we started just reading passes and I'd at all I really had to do is redirect in in that and I ended up scoring three or four goals. offices from Wayne Gretzky during that camp which was pretty incredible. It was interesting. I went to a fantasy camp as well for baseball and it was you know I was a pitcher and I thought I was pretty good and I was going up against Ernie banks and the empire. They gave me a generous call on the first pitch the second pitch. He swung and missed but I know he got really greedy. And I. I'm going to throw a fastball. By Ernie Banks Wchs fastball now. The fantasy camp was in Oakland at the stadium there when the ball came down it was San Jose Great. There's Ernie Dad. He laughed and pointed his finger at me all the way around the basis. It was like I had to go in there for a few minutes kid right. Yeah you thought you could sneak one by me. And Ernie was Ernie was probably almost fifty years old at that time when he hit that home runoff me. I was GONNA say their hands like if you play with Gretzky right now and you. He'll have unbelievably quick hand. GRANDPA had like Meat Hook Not just a total aside but GRANDPA had these like pause. He was undefeated boxer in in the navy. Not a lot of people know that and he was so fast I used to go to the house and watch fights with them a lot and I remember one night. I went up there to watch this fight and I walked into the kitchen of about twenty five. Maybe he's about seventy five seventy eight and I think you know dodging slipping and throwing little baby punches. Like Hey guys you ready to watch watch the fight and as I'm walking in I'm going to give him a hug. And he splits the tiny little fake rabbit punch that catches me on my right side and I. It dropped like a ton of bricks and it's too much information but I was peeing blood for a week in kidney years old so they don't lose the hand they they stay forever. Yeah tell me a little bit about the museum and you know for those people again. It's the Yogi Berra Museum and Learning Center which is an important part. Told me about it. So the Museum Learning Center on the campus of Muslim State University in New Jersey. It was opened in one thousand nine hundred eight. We just had our a twenty year anniversary last year It definitely the museum part. We have a lot of GRANDPA's cool stuff you know and be people accent masks and jerseys and gloved and we have all twenty seven Yankees World Series Rings. There's a lot of neat stuff to look at but we are very proud of and It is very important to us just in the learning center. Part of the title We see a lot of school groups All Year and we try to pass on GRANDPA's. Yeah pause values of humility and embracing diversity and including people being a good teammate. And just general excellent in your life onto the next generation the fans so Every exhibit that we have has educational programming surrounding surrounding it. We teach stem education unit through the the math compliance of baseball And we're just really trying to keep grandpas legacy alive and keep it relevant for for the younger generations. Yeah Yeah I know. I saw two quotes. Your grandfather wants it. Hey kids stop touching my stuff on people. He likes to kind of hang out at the museum when it First Doping Museum is attached to a baseball stadium where both among our State University Baseball Team and the New Jersey jackals which is a Canam team an independently and league team. They both play their grandma would. Just hang out at the museum watch batting practice because he liked to just be around baseball and when the school groups would come through he would sneak up on them. I'm and scare the crap out of them and then suspend some you know little jewels that I'm sure. The kids are told stories about today. Also the latest exhibit at the museum in honor of the one one hundred th anniversary of the Negro Leagues in Twenty Twenty S. Something special to me because I have been asked if I will interview the remaining fifty two living Negro League baseball players lawyers for the Library of Congress collection. And I've gotten to about twenty six of them at this point but of being able to hear those men men and women. I did not know. Peanut Johnson was a Pitcher who won more than twenty game three consecutive seasons in the Negro Leagues and talking to them. It just What they had to go through you know sleeping on the porch of hotels while they're white teammates sleep inside is something? Tell me a little bit more about about that That collection the illustrated history of Negro League Baseball. What a great opportunity for you? That sounds awesome. I'd love to hear some of those interviews But so yes this. This really is if it we have is commemorating the one hand two hundred anniversary of the Negro Leagues which is in Twenty Twenty and it is on loan from the Negro these museum. Am in Kansas City There's over a hundred black and white photos of Negro League players but then a lot of major league players Nearly early guys who became stars in the Big Leagues. So there's Roy Campanella and Monte Irvin Jackie Robinson and one thing that. We've really done that that I think makes this exhibit of it. Takes it to the next level. We've created augmented reality experience with an IPAD. You hold the IPAD over the black and white photo and it turns it into color and when you show this to a seven year old or nine year old who you know for them. The black and white photos might as well be the civil war. You show them that. The you hold. The IPAD turns into color and their whole demeanor changes their faces light up because all of a sudden it becomes real to them. And we're able to share these stories about these really players and bring them more to life because the kids realized that they were real people just by seeing them in color and right now you know these are all very important lessons. For teaching the history of racial inequality in the country through the history of racial inequality in sports were teaching them. You know lessons about what what happened back. Then and they're able to kind of Relate what happened to the Negro League players to the national conversation about race today. And that's pretty cool. Muko neo is a good friend of mine before he passed away and many conversations many interviews with him over the years one of the great stars as of the Old Negro Leagues and I just love the way he would talk about what Sunday afternoons were like afternoon. We're in the Negro Leagues. Were playing in the athletes were out there and people people were wearing white dress shirts and eating chicken in the stands and everything and I could almost get a picture of that and it's time I wish I had. If I could go back I would want to go back at that time just just to watch. It was something special. My grandmother always said that You could really feel shift in society when men South Wearing Fedora to the ballpark. There's a very clear line there. Tell me a little bit about The yogi `ISMs because the people have talked about that and everything over the years and I just wonder from an inside family perspective. What what did you understand about the things? He said how he said it. I think that that it goes back to the the reason that I would talk to grandpa about anything. He just had this very unique way of looking at the world where he didn't see shades of gray just called it like you saw a- and a Lotta the yoga `ISMs really do make a lot of sense. Nobody goes there anymore. It's too crowded if you knew. The restaurant is going to have a three hour. Wait and you were hungry. Would you show up no of course when you come to a fork in the road. Take it that down the street from our house. The fork goes both directions. They both go to the same road. Made Perfect sense to him made perfect sense to fill resume when he spent it he. Just you know I tell them all the time I had gone with the ESPN magazine to interview a tennis player I wrote a story about him. The magazine I come home. My grandmother used to dog ear all the pages in the magazine so my grandfather could find the stories easily. I walked into the house but feel their leftovers one night and he's reading the story on tennis player and he point to the kid and he said this kid is very handsome. You should date him. And I said GRANDPA swimsuit model and GRANDPA said well. Well you got swimsuits never person. There's a difference between someone in swimsuit and swimsuit model. Because they're both in fact wearing swimsuits Like I said he just had this the unique vision he didn't get caught up in nuance and and some of them ended up being very funny but but behind the humor there was is is always you know some truth to them some profound logic and the thing is I love the people love him for the Yogi assumes but it makes me a little bit sad that those Yogi Ism seem to have transcended attended everything and kind of overshadowed how good he was as a player. I think a lot of the people today remember him more for that than than.

"So what did you Brad Marchand last night here. Here he is. He's got a chance to win the hockey game or at least keep the game going taking on the flyers. It's a shootout flyers up by a goal in the shootout marshon needs to score to keep Boston in the game. And he skates up to the PUCK. Ready to rumble. Oh the excitement. And then over skates the puck worse he actually nixed the puck with his stick on the way by causing it to move about. I don't know six inches. But that's enough for him to qualify as over escaping the puck. And that's the end of the hockey game. Unbelievable way for games ending so embarrassing. I think if you overskated period I don't even gaffed touch the PUCK. No I think you can do. I think he can loop back right off the get. Go if you skip past it and you don't touch the puck you can loop around again and get it. Yeah Okay Anyway. Look look at that for some reason. I think that but you know me how wrong I can. You imagine the practice to see those practices if you've ever been to. NHL team practice right there there there. They grind old shit. Man They're working on plays and the coaches Holds these practices all the time. And he's like okay. Listen we've got this plays a little more intricate. You know. We got to go over this if we lose the face off. Here's the here's the move if we win it here's what we're GONNA do. You gotTA break up here. You gotTA check here. You've got to look over there okay and So there's all sorts of Shit right that they gotta do and by the way you're going to have to practice your snapshot after we need to shoot it lower when you're going through traffic all sorts of stuff and now today it's like okay. Spent ten minutes here. Keeping your heel of your stick on the east approaching the PUCK okay. We're GONNA apparently gonNA work on that. Maybe a good poll question. What would you do? If you're Brad. Marsha what would you do after you made that mistake. Okay Okay Yeah okay. I'm not sticking around Stevie okay I'm I'm keeping my skates on I'm walking right down the Zamboni exit and entrance going right up the ramp right to my car. And I'm driving home of Ice Skates on. Okay people people are GonNA think it's weird but that's what I'm doing. You know the the poor Perec what can you do you know what can you do. I'm trying to think think of other. I'm sure all the sports networks will be making top ten of this this week. Well we've got. That's our poll today. So I'll jump in there the RB computing web poll in Pro Sports. What's the most embarrassing moment or blooper that you've ever seen during a game and I've I've compiled a list all of the NHL Gel but The good listener on twitter at TSN Steve as suggested some in pro sports got one here from the empty net goal all that was missed only get scored on at the other end moments later that was Dallas in Edmonton oilers. Back in two thousand seven Patrik Stefan as an empty net to put the game him away and he puts it to his backhand inexplicably. Why why you do that? But The puck jumped over his stick and not only that he falls and then starts the breakout the other way okay bye. Poking the puck forward almost like a perfect pass to the oilers they had seven or eight seconds left and they marched up ice and tied the game. Like can you believe. We've that eventually won it. Didn't they know I think Dallas won that game so at the end of the day wasn't story Steve. I'm not sure it rolling today. I saw I've seen that play. In fact that was I was I was at the arena. Steve but got locked doubt and I missed it. I went outside to have a fag. And that's a British term for a cigarette. Ladies and gentlemen and I was trying to get back in and the guy was sort of was hammered and the guy was he can't you can't get back in the eye just the door he goes. I can't and I went out and shut. Shut the door. Okay and then I could. I couldn't get back. I heard the roar but I saw that play. That one's it's not quite as embarrassing. If you look closely you can get some bad ice. And that PUCK SORTA as changing from forehand-backhand. It flipped over some ice. It got it got moved around for sure again. It was wasn't quite. You know quite the Boehner move that A hundred percent bolder move. Well nationals Craig. Smith did have one that was the total Boehner move. They're taking taking on the leafs. This is probably I duNno. Must be seven eight years ago now Craig Smith as a rookie for Nashville. And he's got the empty net and there's no no one between him and the net and he decides he's going to put it upstairs where Mama keeps well. Whatever Mama puts their the homemade jam the ovaltine and and cream of wheat and dad keeps the dirty magazines shoe way up there? What else in that upper shelf? Anyway he puts it way over the net right and over the glass as well just trying to go roof and he puts an everybody was like celebrating going over to him. It was almost like an optical illusion. You just assumed it was going in your. Your mind was trained to say. It's impossible to miss that so the Nashville players were all going over to congratulate him. And he's like fellas. I got bad news for you. I didn't score there. Yeah Yeah I didn't even didn't even hit the net yup when you when you think of that not hitting the net. I'm going we we back here. It Lee Steve was playing the World Cup of soccer on a penalty. Shot and dude misses the whole net does that's Rossi Rossi. Yup seemed to have this many years ago now but that was a big one. That was a big one. He's just blew it right over the top of the net So that was big Steve Smith or that'll be in there somewhere. People weighing in on this poll question going to going to pass the PUCK. You know He was in behind the net. You know chopping stakes a little bit and then moves out from the side of the net goes to fire it up. The right side hits the back of their goalie in playoff playoff game man. Yeah the winning goal I think. And that's why the oilers didn't have a dynasty. That was maybe five straight years ears. That took them out. Calgary would go on to lose in the fine leading that year to the Montreal Canadians but Yeah that was kind of an little bump in the road for the oiler dynasty of the the eighties and he did go on to win three cups. I think after that so and that was the first guy. Think Gretzky gave the cup to the following year right That's right eight which always come I'm trying to think In Golf although it can happen. But it was like if he would just taking his time or a regroup Scott Hoch missed a fucking eighteen. INCHER GONNA play off in the masters Greg Norman Yup those collapses sort of what I can't you know the the Steve Smith goal that that soccer thing I remember Well what else I saw I saw a guy. One time lose his mind and score on his own net thinking was the opposition. Yep Yeah that's that's like just pure fucking brain cramp you know no explanation for it. Nothing you know unless he was betting on the other one that you mentioned golf the one that popped to mind when you brought up golf. Hadn't even thinking about Gulf for this pool was Joe Joe Daley At q school in two thousand. He's got a short PUTT. He makes it John Daly or Joe. Daley Joe Okay. So in two thousand he misses a pot what is he. He's at q school and she short pot and it just goes in and comes out it goes right in the heart of the cup and comes out because of a fault in the in the cup. So what put embarrassment on Joe Daley. I'd put the embarrassment on whoever the greenkeeper was that day. But imagine you miss that. PUTT and you miss your chance at the PGA tour and he never ever. That's nineteen years ago now or twenty years ago sorry and he's never had gotten back on the PGA tour brutal okay. Let's go through some of the other. The other embarrassing moments that People have given us On our twitter poll and Let's see Bill McDonald writes since watching Paul coffey score in his own net in the playoffs. That set the bar are so high for mess ups that I zero fear of making beer league blunders and it still carries forward. What about making blunders on twitter when it comes to NHL Trivia? Yeah Paul coffey. That's funny that's Steve Smith. Not Paul Coffee That's funny we got Wondering I was gonNA cough never skirted its own no. He sure didn't sure didn't Patrick was statue of Liberty Blunders still haunts me as Colorado Avalanche Fan. That is from Brian. Burns Burns e seventy nine. Yeah that was a beauty that was Colorado in Detroit. I think even in the playoffs. I want to say where I think it. Steve is Herman takes shot on Patrick or WAN and raw makes us amazing glove save but instead of just waiting for the whistle. Go in the face off to happen. Patrick do I wanted to make sure that everybody knew he had caught. That puck so he put his arm straight up in the air and as he threw who is arm up really quickly. The puck came out and trickled into the net and all happened so quickly. The referee hadn't blown the whistle. And that was that the Red Wings score big goal to Oh i never knew that. Oh Yeah to beauty gallon here from sporting's guy. A CERTAIN CFL game comes to mind probably not one of the worst mistakes but if you have to rate the all time oops moments in sports it probably comes in around the thirteen mark and that would be thirteen men on the field by the schedule and rough Friday's in the Grey Cup Montreal with with a field goal to win the game and they miss it. Scotch one wins. No scratch Gotcha on too many men on the field move it up five yards. Montreal makes the field goal and wins the Grey Cup absolute heartbreak. That Regina will never forget. Yeah there's is a bunch of it in baseball Of course the big one. I'm waiting for here. Who boots the ball? Their first base the the biggest blunder ever bill buckner bill buckner The the fan of course leaned over and Chicago. Steve Bartman Ball does that and wrecks the game Sometimes you'll see outfielders catch a deep fly ball and thinking it's the third out and so the catch the ball and then they start to piss around and start to jog in Larry Walker district and they start to jog in the meantime the the base runners there's guy and based they realized what he's done and fucks off right catches the base in the guy's not even looking at it you know he's not even looking for.

"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.

"Quality care pharmacy. Go to fourteen half. Milers? Let's not off. Alex baseball's around the corner. What do you think your cubs this year? So since you asked me about that. All right. The cubs are a ninety one ninety two win team. The should win that division. But Saint Louis is going to be better than the walkie and be their number one competition. Okay. My take out this. Didn't wanna division last year? They won more games. Correct. Ninety five games last year. They did they didn't do much in the off season now and for them to contend. They've got to get a comeback year from Bryant Russell on and off the field. Come back here. You're missing somebody Darvish. That's where I'm going. Yeah. It is an addition in a way knows kind of blurred here. Those two years. I don't care about their. Then do I don't care about that. I wanna see if he can stay healthy. That's what I'm concerned about. If he's healthy. He's a good. He's a good middle the rotation pitcher. Well. They signed him to a twenty four million the six year contract, or whatever it was. And they give a lot of guaranteed money after stunk in the World Series. You before they wish now numbers before that. But we'll see you right now. It looks bad. They're still five years left, which is a lot. And the point is I told you the time I thought it was a bad signing. We'll see I I was frustrated as all could be last year. But we'll see if it should be. I will say one more thing about the cubs without saying that the cardinals by the way had a heck of an offset. They did. So that's going to really cut the cubs win total down a little bit from what it was last year. The card. It's card. Seventh grade off season. That's what I'm saying. That's the number competition. That's number one competition is right, then the verge aren't bad, obviously, very very good. I just think that. Cubs. Gotta get those comeback. Here's if they do they'll be fine. You're missing somebody to contrasts contrast needs to hit again, he does need to hit. Again. He needs to be more consistent Russell's gotta get his average up higher. And you'd get us off the field act together, which I know is capable of doing that. We don't know suspended for the first chunk of the season. So it'll be heavier by shortens Zubrus second books like Sobers after a bad start last year, really penny Strauss. He finished strong last year. I'll get I'll give them the credit for that. Remember one more thing about the rest of the baseball. There's so many people that are on time. I know what that's holding up everything at us. That's why they can't trade kissed. You. See what do we do? What falls on here, dominos fall? I don't. You'd think by now they would next week's going to be a pretty big week or they're going to miss part of spring training fifteen of the top fifty free agents. According to CBS sports is still inside. They're asking for too much money. Maybe give you better come down a little bit. I don't think the Phillies should sign. Harper. And I'll tell you why. Could your last year Phillies slumped at the end of one twelve of forty games? They went downhill at the end, I would sign Machado, but I wouldn't signed because you look at the numbers Phillies had less to do the worst defensive team in baseball. And now they're getting one of the two worst defensive outfielders. Him and cast is the two worst defensive outfielders FARs run-saver runs prevent it. Now the channel 'cause you're batting average. They were thirtieth and batting average in the league last year. And their pitching staff is still they've got a couple of good ones. But it's just not. Even their owners said we may be spending stupidly, and I think you are going to spend stupidly if you go after if you go after and he's not a good teammate onto the right field. I'm not talking about Machado. Questions on him too. They're just not a good. A good team. Justin Wilson, by the way, gotta tear ten million dollar deal for the Matz. Oh, he didn't sign with the cubs. Re-sign note. The cubs spent their mobile didn't spend a lot of money on George kontos, Kim a minor league deal. But that's going to replace Justin Wilson, it looks like. I thought he job last year. Three forty six year reign one point four three wet not bad. Not good. But not bad. And I'm wondering because they wanted to resign them. But they didn't offer a whole lot. I know that. Well, the cups got some issues, and let's it's going to be interesting spring training and interesting season next year. What do you think about the Tigers getting Gordon Beckham? I know it's just a minor league deal with inviting. I think you'd have nothing to lose correct? And look when he came up with the White Sox several years ago. I thought he was going to be a star. And he looked like a star the first year at third base. The White Sox screwed him a young guy like that. They moved to second move back boot back and forth, and he never recovered. He never recovered from that you'd think well, it should be covering the company's never did. But thirty one hour or something like that. So he's got he's gonna little some miles on them. But. Nothing to lose with minor league contracts. We'll see what happens who signed Albuquerque. I'll look at that. I thought I heard he signed two Diddy Beckham's thirty two do you think you'll make the team though? Or were they give it to a younger guy. They wanna see. I think he's a chance plays second base here. This year. Start. Yeah. Wow. Start. I mean, I would like to see a young guy. Maybe good dream platoon from my legislative lugos start. I think you want to see a good Trump. Is utility for oppositions. He's a jack-of-all-trades a master of none crush. I don't think Lugo was ready now to be a big league started second base. I led to see a little start move around. Like, you said spell, I think they will start in there. But I think Beckham starts well in AAA they'll Zuma with no problems is said would say a tall looks like the Blue Jays fan over Kirke. I'm sarah. Actually, he's a free agent. Still always you free at least and they didn't resent him. He's only released by thirteen fourteen teams leave alone you realize Zia raise only three sixteen first career three one six. Yeah. That's leave aloen lead. Oh, come on. Seventeen and eight thousand three sixteen year old on why did ten twelve twelve thirteen number one at that many to. Yes. Yes. Look teams. And he's playing the busy playing in the big leagues before teams at least for a couple of organizations. I think only five I think you'd better look again here exaggerating a little bit. But anyway, he's released twice by a couple of teams. Yeah. The royals in the Whiteside recently. He's always thirty one. So Albuquerque's you trust them in the clutch balk. Tide. They brought him. And he's a this guy is good. No. No, oh, no. That's albuquerque. Seth report box in the clutch for Woody runs to score. Runs to score price. Dickerson was with a love with them. They were in love with L. The amazing L. That's like the amazing price in the amazing Dickerson too. We don't have much time left this hour. And then we'll be joined by Ray, Scott next. PM any comments or questions a quick comment? A question on sports. We invite your calls at eight hundred nine two three nine three eight five. Eight hundred nine two three nine three five better not take anymore. Emails. We got an Email now we'll go to that. And then don't forget coming up next hour former piston player and coach Ray, Scott, I guess on sports talk, which we have one more here. We have Paul Paul's in Wyandotte and Paul's Email is about the Red Wings. Ryan. You haven't talked about your playoff prediction about the Red Wings. Looks like they're not gonna make it looks like it. What went wrong, and why did you think that there are plans? As well as it could this year. And I think they've lost some tough games. They're still young. But unlike the pistons, they have a future right seven Ford could be stars under twenty five years of age with the pistons half. Right. Could be could be one way that they're doing it now. Yeah. I mean, there's more potential with rendering some. L albuquerque. No, not Albuquerque. But I thought you were crazy pretending they're playing I thought I thought they could have made the plaza and lost a lot of tough games and games L shot him. And once he did now shot they won the won the outshot. They loss which is it's a strange way of doing it over on a pretty good year. It's not for the play offs. But overall, it's been a pretty good year. And I think in two or three years this team is going to be knocking on the door of so good real good things. You can see the wildlife. People didn't have making a so we see that. I see that those issues are in their head. But I agree. They do have a future helluva future. Mike the Tigers tiger's take a little longer. I think. The wings. A little shorter pisses. Forget it. They have no future. We'll talk to Ray Scott about that. We continue the next hour on sports, talk and. I've been waiting to make a decision on the restaurant just got to recover a little bit more from the surgery. You know, this is a tough surgery. I went through and I'm more or less recovered. I do have to get both knees replaced. They told me. Now, I'm walking great are a lot better. I should say some of the whole debt off while the doctrines giving medications to hold it for me. So I told them I talked to him this week. I got to hire a couple people when I do that. I'm gonna call them. We're going to make the deal in the one in Livonia, I can tell you that. Let's go to John Detroit. You're on sports talk. John. Hi. Hi. I just want to say that the player in the NHL that gets the least respect going back years is Bobby or the greatest hockey player ever. I don't think I love Bob your, but and and all that stuff, but he didn't play long enough and his knees went on them Gordie Howe played he was dominant. Fifty. Yeah. But I just think he's like kinda like Bo Jackson, you know, the greatest probably the greatest running back never waited his career. These again on him. You're saying the same thing. Yeah. Hip the hip injury. Bobby or changed the game a hockey and not for the good when he changed it. Everybody. Tried to be another Bobby on the hockey went down after being not Bob yours fall. He just he was great. So it wasn't his fault. They just they couldn't up to that responsibility. The three scoring title. I mean, how many how many defensemen win three scoring titles? You only one guy near him as an offensive near of not in this category. Was Paul Coffey not as category. And he did he won Stanley Cups with the Edmonton Oilers. But he wasn't as good as or but he was dominant offense of defenseman. Both of them..

All mine. Thank you so much check Murray. How was it? You became a doctor? Well, it's because I got cut from university of Michigan's hockey team. I dedicated my whole life to being a pro hockey player just like my dad and brothers. And that's all I wanted to do. And so played junior hockey up in Toronto with Gretzky and Paul Coffey and had Gordie Howe gloves and Gordy Howe stick and all the right equipment, all the right training. But just lack the talent the size the meanness. And so at Michigan. I was cut, and then I thought, wow, what am I gonna do with my life? And I love sciences. I loved math. I loved working with people, and I love helping out wherever I could. And I thought wow. Being a physician might be a great way to be able to accomplish all those goals. I didn't think I was smart enough to get into medical school. But I I east my way through and. I feel very fortunate that I found a passion that I love as much as as my dad, loved hockey. And the passion is to be a radiologist. We all know that word, but what what do radiologists do not much. No, we I I specialize in sports medicine imaging. So do a lot of readings of are MRI's of the knees and shoulders and other body parts on on athletes to help them to get back to their full potential, which is a lot of fun for me. So I helped my family a lot to kind of get through all their war wounds. But radiologist most of us do general radiology as well. So we'll read emergency scans the head chest abdomen pelvis during a car accident. I might be the the guy behind the curtain that's making a diagnosis for all your injuries. Speaking of helping people in tough. Times. Let's go back thirty one years. August sixteenth nineteen eighty-seven eight forty six PM where were you? And what happened? Yes. So that day I was actually on call at university of Michigan, hospitals and. Someone came over to me from the ER, and they said, we'll get ready because there's been a big plane crash, and there's going to be a lot of people coming in. That was the the the crash where over three hundred people died and the the the sole survivor was a little girl. She was about three years old. I believe at the time and Chicago. Yes, yes. And so when Cecilia came in pretty much all hands Ron deck through the ER, and we did all the imaging that she needed to be able to diagnose her injuries and get her to the operating room lickety-split. And as I understand it. She made a complete recovery, which is absolutely miraculous. I mean, literally the only human being amongst three hundred plus passengers, and as I understand it was her mom shielded her and that allowed her to be able to sustain such an incredible. A crash. You're from Michigan. You are Michigan. You live in Ohio. The buckeyes versus the wolverines. What happens with you and your patients? Well, I take care of of of all human beings, regardless of their their university loyalties. There's there's a lot of wolverines that live in our in our hometown. And certainly a lot of buckeyes as well and. I appreciate the the athletic talents. And the academic towns of every person, regardless of which school there from so so we route we root for everybody. Really? We just root for for for a great performance. You mentioned that the start Murray that in your freshman year at the university of Michigan the hockey coach, Dan Farrell cut you. Yes. How did you tell mom and dad and what happened? Well, it was it was devastating because it was it was somebody saying to me that the thing that you had wanted to do your entire life was not going to happen. And I was so choked up that I I I wanted to wish the remaining players, good luck. But I couldn't do that. So I wrote good luck on on the chalkboard. And then stepped out and said, wow, what am I gonna do with my life and just kind of walked around the campus in a in a daze? And when I got back to my dorm, I called my mom and dad and just said, you know, finally, there's a there's a how that got cut from a hockey team. And and the reminded me that my brother Mark actually had gotten cut as a midget from one team. So I wasn't the first. But then my mom. Mom, said well, you know, we we at least we don't have to worry about you anymore and that took the pressure off. And and my dad said, well, you didn't seem like you're having that much fun with it. Anyway. So I am glad that you can now pursue what you really want to do. So that really was all I needed to hear to to know to to be able to follow my my other passions. And and know that that I was loved to no matter what speaking of being loved. We're talking to Dr Murray how who's the youngest son.

"paul coffey" Discussed on View From the Penalty Box

"I shook his hand. And that meant a lot DRA me to see that these kind of people are still out there. There's so many people that do things for themselves or the do something because it cameras are on them. And that's the reasoning do at Paul Coffey did this from his heart. And he told me said, you know, I was kinda sleep. And meaning he wasn't wasn't tuned into bidding on that. First one. Friskin tar with the pitches because he said, I probably would have gone after that form. But you know, when I thought about it later, I'm glad Paul didn't get involved in that Qatar because you know, it's the two families. It was down to that wanted it in a wouldn't be right for Paul just to go bid the one family. They give it to the Joseph's. I just think it was up to those two to work it out. But but by Paul stepping up and just doing little some through the Josephson. It was that kind gesture where you got nothing in return. And I don't even know if it was mentioned in the paper. But when I see people that do some like that in always stays with me. And I wish that I had more funds available that I could go around and help people that really needed to or you some good. And when I saw Paul it. You know, I've always believed if you see something good. Here's something good set about somebody doesn't do any. Good just to keep it to yourself. So when I who still capable what Paul did I have to go over to shake his hand. And really is tell them, you know, you just moved up book cites or that that that's gonna make his day. But I told him that the and again, a did Mahar a lot of good to see somebody for no motive other than to maybe make the Joseph feel a little bit better. Call today for all right?

So I mean, they play baseball. They played soccer hockey, they didn't like football, and I didn't want to coach football sided get wall. But so you know, what I talk about coaching and we're referring to hockey specifically. But it is not. Things that I've learned about cultured kids, and I don't even know if I've learned is just something that to me. It's common sense. You could apply this as a coach at any sport. Like any sports were, you know, kids are paying what thing when you coach whatever sports and for me, I'll just use hockey you have to remember as coach kids a play, very they paid play one of my first lessons that Aw, gotta tell you.
