"No, there was not a sidekick and traded him away right so that he's played with for six years that Has helped jacket just as much as Jack has helped Sam Reinhart. I get that, but you know what? Or maybe the numbers and the production is not as high but at least you show he's skating the way that he was before, because last year he didn't skate. He was hurt. We all know they didn't say it, but we all could see that he was injured. He had a lower body injury that limited as skating. All these points were on the power play. When he didn't have to escape. We can all see it. The best case scenario and for everybody in this situation would be to have Jack get A surgery. I don't know which one. I'm not going to argue Fusion disk replacement whatever him coming back healthy, playing some games and then next summer. Because I alright the trade deadline, But I think it's Morse likely next summer. Haven't when teams salary caps are different are different, and you're getting ready for the draft and free agency and you can do it before you hit free agency Because then you spend the 10 million somewhere else so That's where I think is the best case scenario, maybe trade deadline but most likely at the end of the season again. Does that put Sabres in a tough situation? Because once once you hit what July 1st Jack. His no movement clause. Kicks in and he gets to someone that's the deadline wants to go. Yeah, That's the deadline for the Sabres this year. They didn't have a deadline. They still don't have a deadline. Deadline is 11 months away. Jack's got to play this year, boys. He's got to play. That's it. I mean, how do you trade him? If he has the fusion, and he misses the whole season? How do you trade him next summer? I mean, there's no guarantee the teams are going to be like, Oh, yeah, just because he had the surgery. We haven't seen him play. Remember when they said Peter and I know we have to go to break remember when Elliot and Darren Drager both said, there's a situation where this would be another team's issue You trade Jack and the other team will make the decision. I really don't think that's the case. Teams don't want to acquire an injured player and then have them go through surgery. And I don't know that the Sabres one that because they'd have to take 60 cents on the dollar for what Jack Eichel is so nobody wants that. Not anymore. Yeah, we'll be back with this or that. Instigators. We'll talk more about this in the second hour Also Rasmus Dahlin contract discussion. Casey Middle Stag contract still needs to be signed. And there was one more Henry Yoki hard.

"Way of thinking about it. But you are building down the middle of the ice. Your goalie, defense and centres wingers. You can find those wingers. I'm not saying Brady to Chuck. You can find them. Okay. But I would put Critica Chuck's too. I would do Dahling one Chuck, too. I wouldn't even I wouldn't even have Darlene ahead of Quinn. Why are you Why would you take Don't mean ahead of Quinn, If what with what you've seen. We're because after what you've seen so far, Yeah, You're gonna take Darlene number one. You're crazy. I'm not crazy. There's a reason why I'm picking down number one. OK, I will ask you this 2000 and nine NHL entry draft. Who do you pick John Tavares or Victor Hedman, number one. Edmond, OK? Hedman. You picked Hedman over John Tavares Gionta versus a centre John Tavares is almost a point a game throughout his career. Okay, fantastic hockey player. Very good. Very good. Very elite. Good elite. Good. Okay, but you're still taking the defenseman number one because Victor Hedman wit is point production. And growing into his body and obviously now winning cups. And all of that. You're like Hedman has the guy. I think Darlene could be a close to Victor Hedman. Okay, Well, let me ask you this way, then. So it doesn't favor your argument. Craig. If John Tavares were in the 2018 draft, would he go number one overall for you? Or would you take Brady could Chuck Mm. Mm. I wish I had the jeopardy beepers. I probably right now. With what I've seen from Brady could chuck in his the early very early parts of his career. I think you're going to see the massive coming out party for Brady could Chuck when he's 23 24 25. That's when I think he is going to. That's what's so use named Brady could chuck then I would still say Brady could Chuck because Brady could Chuck if you tell him Listen, stay away from the mutt bag stuff on the ice and just go out and play offensive hockey and produced points for a team. I think that he would produce a lot of points. If you want him to be physical. He is definitely going to be physical. He's one of the most physical guys in the National Hockey League. He you do not want this guy fighting. You don't want him fighting, but he will fight. He's kind of like a Dylan cousins. You don't want him fighting, but you want him to play his game with the passion that he's going to play with. So you can get the most out of his game. You don't want them fighting, but you love that they're willing to. And that's Brady Could Chuck again. He's defensively responsible. He'll blocked shots. He's going to do anything. He's going to stick up for teammates. He's he's clearly taken a leadership role in Ottawa, and I would not be surprised if they name him. The captain of the Ottawa Senators absolute very soon. Absolutely. And I love to look at it. That's the first three years they're the same as Sam Reinhart's. I love Greek. A Chucky has multiple, uh, um, kind of like assets to his game. He can. One night he wants to play and score. You'll do it. He wants to be physical. Another night, he'll do it. I love Brady. Can Chuck I still want that stud defenseman Rasmus Darlene in his first year at 44 points in 82 games. In the second yard 40 points in 59 games and take then take another defenseman. Maybe, but let me ask you, so he was the best. You know, the look at Victor Hedman. And you ask me about Victor Hedman when Victor Hedman was drafted Number two overall in the NHL entry draft? Yeah. What was he known as? I'll be honest with you. I don't really remember. The only thing I remember is that there was a big debate between the centre and the defenseman. Um Hedman was a six ft six defenseman. That was big, but I I don't remember what the scouting report at that time when Bob McKenzie said about Victor Hedman and what he was gonna turn out to be, so I can't tell you what it was. Well, I can tell you this. He wasn't known as an offensive defenseman. Yeah, at all. He was taken five years to get to always know. He was known as a very big mobile skating defenseman. What kind of defenseman is he? We don't really know yet, but we know that he skates very well. We know that he's got good hockey sense and we know that he can, you know, move the puck. He wasn't offensive. Rasmus Darlene's in a different position. Rasmus Darlene is considered one of the most offensive defenseman to be drafted. In the last 2030 years. So it's very difficult for an offensive guy, which that's the reason why we drafted you first overall to fall into a position to play a style like Victor Hedman, But darling is not Erik Karlsson. He's not like one dimensional. We play offense and that defensive zone back there. I don't know what it's like. I don't play in that zone. That's not his Dolina study. The defenses don't know. Okay. I think rest was Darlene can turned out to be a multiple, uh I kind of I'm looking forward and I said asked twice, but like it has more to his game. I can't just the offensive society. I totally agree with everything that you're saying. I'm projecting here too. I'm going to tell you right? Five years down the road at 26. Okay, five years down the road at 26. We go back to the 2018 draft. And I'm gonna redrafted and I will have Rasmus Dahlin first. That's where I'm projecting it. No. No, I won't. I won't put him first, but I think that like you said. And this is the most important thing. With time with growth. Think you can see Rasmus Darlene as the Norris Trophy winner. I think he is going to evolve and understand how to play a bigger game than what he played when he was in in Sweden all those years, which was a very elusive Offensive defenseman. Okay? You're saying he could be winning Norris at a time where skilled defenseman in this league I think are at an all time high. Young, skilled young so guys that could win the generous multiple times over and over like you have the kid and then the Rangers. You have a car you have Hughes, you have high skinning. You know you want to look at look at actually still have years of Hedman. Like I know, I know Marty what you're trying to say with Darlene and where he can go with his game, but it's very tough to overlook. Uh, you know, a Quinn Hughes when he in his first year in the league, he had 68 games played. 68 53 points as a rookie. He was He had 14 more games to play. He would have had 10 more points. He would have been 60 plus points in a rookie year. Then last year. He had an off season..

Erik Karlsson John Tavares Bob McKenzie Chuck Victor Hedman Edmond five years 44 points 68 games Rasmus Darlene Hedman Sweden Craig Darlene Dylan 82 games Rasmus Dahlin Rangers Five years 68

"First 2021 NFL. Fantasy Football League. Yeah, my disgust for fantasy sports. Turn them down his reality, But I am in. No, they're listening. And I'm in and they need they know how to contact me. 885 52 5 50. I don't care guys are sharks. They want to play with the sharks. Guess all like Coach G M's. These guys know the league like you wouldn't believe their football nuts and stick me with an ice pick and throw me in the ocean riff. Want to go swim with the Sharks. Want to bleed all over in the bloody waters with him. I'm just a chum. I'm just the chump. Oh, man, You don't know what you're getting yourself in chump chump. What's crazy, Craig saying today Crazy Craig shows up Sometimes for two hours a day. Sometimes, you know, not at all, actually. But today he's coming out late late late to the show. We got five minutes with crazy, Craig, We're talking about Dalian Contract. What's what's crazy about it? Well, like I said, if you want to go a little little crazy little nut bar here, Um, I'm going to go off What? Scott Wheeler, um, spoke about in his top 50 prospects. Who is the number one prospect Andrew. I I wonder if he really is number one, or if he's number one, because we've talked about him so much, and you've made him number one because, like Jack, I called traded we might have made. We might have made some number one this year in the upcoming season. But Quinn by filled from the L A kings is, uh, is ranked number one. Okay for prospects that being said Would you treat? Yes. Stalling right now? Yes, right now for Quentin by field, That means to you at the break. We have talked about How many teams in this league? It's a center men's league. It's a sentiment and defenseman lead. You have to have, uh, elite defenseman. But you have to have the elite centers and for us to sit there and say that we will have Dylan cousins. Clinton by Field and Casey. Middle Stat as our future, moving five field, Dylan cousins Insane Who says Who says cousins has to be the number one? Why can't I'm not saying he's the number one? I'm saying casing Middle stat might be the number one. We don't know what we're going to get in KC Mittal stat he played Insane at the end of last year. And to say that we have Casey, Middle stat. Clinton by field and and Dylan cousins, as our three sentiment is absolutely incredible. Now you say to yourself, but you're trading away whereas still need. Yes, we are. But we're acquiring. We have oh and power. We have power. That's the reason why like this is where seventh pick in the draft this year and we draft Ackland. I'm not sitting here saying we should be trading Darlene, but because we have Owen power That's why I'm saying Could the Sabres trade Dolly? Let me ask you something. If you're rob Blake, and you're the GM of the L, A kings and I were to offer you right now. Rasmus Dahlin frequented by field, Would you do it? I think we'd have to take some money. Why Because you're because by field would be making. I mean, if he hits his bonus is probably a couple million. But I mean, cap would be a good the upwards of 3 $3.5 million. Goodbye Field, okay? Okay. Darlene is going to get north of seven. The North will be he'll be fine. Eight. Fine, eight. I don't know. I mean, eight. Okay, so you're making the deal or what? I think I would, Bob. Okay, so I have just traded away. Rasmus Darlene for Quentin by field. Now when I'm trading Jack Eichel And in the Jack Eichel trade right now without are ridiculous. Trade with Quentin by Field and Darlene. The Sabres need to get back to center. You have to get back to center. You have to get back to center. So if we make a trade with Darlene To L a straight up. Defenseman for a sentiment, okay? Now you're in a situation that you can turn your thoughts. In the Jack Eichel trade to making sure that you get back. A top end defenseman because you know that you're going to have own powers. Not next year. But the year after. And he is going to be N h l ready in a big way. Own powers. So now can you go to the Rangers? Kenny Powers? Okay. Oh, and power. Can you go to the Rangers right now? And now saying, I'm switching my thought process from trying to acquire elite offensive talent like a Kapo koku or a Philip heat all or my friend LaFraniere or someone along that nature and you look at your.

"With good recently. At this point, what's going to happen with the rumor like There are still some free agents that have yet to sign and Now we're seeing like some NHL players go to arbitration. Jacob Rana is in arbitration. But Some of these players maybe have deals in place, but they're just waiting like the cases of Zika still on sign and just going to go ahead and resign with the Islanders, But it has probably right, like Suzie guesses. I think like the biggest name free agent that's left, um, incidental charges not yet signed. He's the oldest player in the NHL. I don't know if he's going to sign anywhere. Um, but the list is not, you know, Kyle Palmeri. He's going to Paris, and they might They might both go to the Islanders. Also, the Islanders have, like half of these Eric stall. Still unsigned, uh, to Tara went back to the devil's, right. Yes. That was the tar. Okay? He didn't go back. He just joined went there. Yeah, Yeah, yeah. I get what? You're mental. Yes, Yes, Um He got 21.5 million in the process to like. Most Tatars really that good if 4.5 million from the devil's over two years. I mean, I get it. It's two years. But okay, Yeah. Meanwhile, like the sabers, I guess If we're listing the things to expect the big Big news. Big announcements from, um Buffalo Sports before the next bills game. Uh, there might be stadium news. Maybe. Maybe maybe not. There might be a Darlene extension. There might be, uh, middle stat or Yoki har, you extension or some like the next stage. I mean, none of them will be, of course of the significance of a Josh Allen deal. No, no, it'll be for 150 Million guaranteed, or 258. Possibly at the full value of the deal. Darlene Contract, you know, like the the Allen one. I don't know that it's easy to do these big money deals, but you know, like, Oh, let's just pay him like one of the top quarterbacks in the league because he played like one of the top quarterbacks in the league. Darlene his next deal. I don't know. I haven't been able to tell you what he would get for two years now, and the thought was originally like, Oh, he'll be a $10 million player because, you know, first overall generational defenseman like Definitely has not played out that way. And you Funny Britain like if you watch the NHL defenseman landscape The number of $9 million defenseman did it triple in the last month. Of a sudden everybody got $9 million. Darnell Nurse Seth Jones. Kalma car, of course. All of a sudden, every defenseman. Like 9,000,009 million Is somebody going to give wrist a line in 8.5 moment? Goodness, if that happens, good Lord. Oh, good luck with the fan base there. Well, I mean, Oh, my goodness. You know if your risk the line and you probably think that was good, great, right, he he has to put up Decent numbers for one season in Philly, and it'll be You know, eight years 68 million for him somewhere. Probably not here, but somewhere. Yeah. Looking at the top Paid defenseman here. Yeah. Kale McArdle, Dougie Hamilton Narrow. Hey, skin in our just amongst the defenseman that just got paid. North of $8 million, and those guys are our face, right? And they were all our face to Hamilton was Hamilton's A U F A. Right, right. But still I mean, the list of defenseman here that are getting paid above $8 million went from like Like eight to now. 13 players. Yeah, very quickly. Insane. Yeah, just jumped in a bunch of And in a flat cap to any year with the cap is pretty flat. We've seen some of those guys get big money. Um and that's what makes Darlene so. Tough. I mean, I know we were going to get to Eichel here. But that's what makes Darlene so tough as he's supposed to be a defenseman of that caliber, But the production has not necessarily been there. It's what happens when you had a coach that limited you and handcuffed you for nearly two full seasons until a guy that was assistant honest staff just said, Go play your game like you're the handcuffs are gone. Go, do you and he went and did him and he did really well, he did better. And that's the The other thing is the Sabres. This is I guess the point about continuity and it's hard to build anything like Sure. I mean, the Sabres obviously had back to back very bad coaches. But you know if your Rasmus Dahlin your your individual development along the way, what was he supposed to be? Well, what he needed probably was Don Granado to be his coach right away. Instead of you know another coach that decided, like, well, you're gonna have to get better at this, and we need you to be good in front of your own net and blah, blah blah, instead of building those things in slowly along the way while succeeding at the other stuff. You know what the Sabres Coaches at the time. There was kind of no, let's shut down the other stuff until you can get the base defensive game improvements or whatever you know, from a player development standpoint, he has not been granted the best player development. No. And you know, how does that reflect in contract like what to do with his contract? So that's that's something that decide right? And it seems like I mean, it seems like at this point, the Sabres and Dahlan's camp want to get a long term extension. Which is good because I still think Darlene has the absolute potential to become one of the best defenseman in the NHL. I think it's skill set is there I think that you know, in his 1st 23 years, he was kind of hindered in handicapped too. Try and be a better two way guy or try to be more of a defensive guy. And I think under Don Granado, he just said, you know, just go be comfortable. Go do what you have to do to be the best defenseman you can. And if that's still the same approach going forward for Asmus, Darlene, I think that his ceiling is going to or maybe not sealing, but I just think that his His level of play is going to step up to the next level, and he's going to get closer to that ceiling that everybody projected him to be being one of the best defenseman in the NHL and so on and so forth, So we'll see how that kind of goes, But I I am still very confident in Rasmus Dahlin and his ability to be a very good defenseman, A number one defenseman on this blue line. 80305 50 Frank Silvera, Frank Sarah. Belly reports, The Flyers are closing in on an extension for Carter Heart..

"We got Paul. Hi, Paul. No, I'm good. How are you? I'm well. The qualifying offers go as expected, right? Yeah. Yeah, There was no surprise there. Well, Dawson, d Pho. He never even played a game for the organization. They signed him last year out of college. Uh, western Michigan. He got hurt. And never played a game, so he was not qualified. But, yeah, you know, middle stat asp Lind. Colleen Yoki, hire you Fitzgerald. No surprises there. Paul. That'll eat up some of the money they have to spend. But it really is going to be interesting to see how they get enough money to get to the floor. You feel like they'll have to do work to do that, Or is this Is this a little bit overblown? Remember when Murray had to do that, and Murray goes, I don't know why everybody's getting he goes. Why is this even a topic conversation? He goes, It's not hard to spend money. Yeah, he said, just not worry. We're going to be just fine. Well will easily get to the floor. And I remember I don't remember who they sign and all that, But I do remember they They did easily get to the floor. So, uh, yeah, that shouldn't be a problem. I look forward to the Big $7 million a year Toby Reader contract announcement. What? Yeah, and maybe, you know, you know a free agent that I'd be looking at as a guy like Coleman and from Tampa Bay or a guy like Suzie, CAS and As you know, you got to over pay and free agency, but you know, to get those types of players. You know, maybe maybe, you know, you do have to over pay a little bit to get a guy like that. I think, especially Coleman, who really did well in the Stanley Cup playoffs, and, uh, but I think is a very, very solid bottom Six guy and, uh, somebody that certainly could help this team, especially now that he's won two Stanley Cups. But you know again, if you're gonna want guys you're going to have to over. Pay him. You're getting ahead of my questions. Paul slowdown I was I was going to get to us face. Stop jumping the gun here with the R F A s The guy's not named Rasmus Darlene. Anybody else taking much thought in terms of how the saber structure contracts? Well, you know, middle statues came around and Aspelin just came around. Yoki. How are you was good, And then he wasn't And then he was again. He's kind in the DA Lean camp that way. So, yeah. In middle Staten aspirins case. I think they'd like to see a little bit more before. They commit any long term type of contracts to them. Interesting. You know, Darlene, where where they may go with that. I think. You know, the Sabres would love to probably do do an eight year deal and try to get him for six million. Uh, you know, I don't think Darlene will be smart on his part. I think he'd be better off trying to bank on himself. And you know, he was more looking more like what you would have expected Rasmus Dahlin to look like as Don Granado had taken over. But Certainly not enough to be an $8 million defenseman or anything like that. Like, uh, some defenseman have gotten more recently. So you know if I'm the Sabres singer? Well, if I get him, do an eight year deal and get them for like six million. That would be really I think that really, really good deal for us. But I don't think that would be a good deal for Darlene. I wouldn't think he's looking for anything more than a two or three year deal just to kind of bet on himself. And you know, because if he ever does really become what The Sabres drafted and to be I mean, he's looking at the 9 $10 million a year contract at that point. Would any of the other guys get more than a one year deal? Paul the the other four guys. Aspirin or Fitzgerald or Fitzgerald. You know, he's and, uh, you know, I don't expect him to be a guy that the Sabres are going to have on his team. Okay. How are you? Yeah, I think you're looking at maybe. 23 tops. You know, As I said, because middle statin aspirin, they're still show me. Okay. How are you? And you know he again? He had a good year near the end of the year. But, you know, I know I don't see anything more than two or three year deals for those guys with their own free agents of the period open. The signing period opens up tomorrow at noon. Uh, no tampering, no legal tampering period this year. With all Mark. Let's start there and throw in to the discussion. The fact they just acquired a Goldie prospect from Florida in their trade and the Sam Reinhart trade. Do you think all Mark resigns? If so, How long should the Sabres be shooting for in a contract with Lena's Hallmark? Um, They definitely want to try to resign him. They have not given up on that. Ah, negotiations were ongoing as the last time we talked to Adams over the weekend and You know, as he said he they want him to be their number one goaltender, and they're still talking to him about that. Um, again now that you're in a spot where you got to spend some money. You know, I've been saying for how long Now? I don't think I would give all mark five million, but if it's only for two years Maybe I would You know, you guys spend some money now You've got to have a a number one goalie that helps you transition into looking in So you know, if the Yeah. You know, I'm not real interested in over paying him for a long period of time. But you know if that's what he's looking for. In the $5 million range. I'd be willing to give him a couple of years at that. I think. Again because you know, as Jeremy was talking about when we started the conversation, you've got to get to the floor. Jake McCabe is next up. I think, right. We're talking about the top two guys on their free agent list. Um, what kind of market do you think would be their former K because he's had some injury issues. Yeah, That's the thing. It's the injury issues and Um, you know, our team is going to want to take a chance, especially with the injuries he's coming off of these are serious injuries. You know, And you know that teams are going to question well, What's he going to be like? You know, is he going to be able to recover from this? You know it is he going to be ready for the beginning of the season? There is is going to take him even if he's ready to play. Is he going to be at full strength, though you know how sometimes sometimes it takes athletes, even though they're playing almost a year to become themselves again? So you know, I think injuries definitely would play in it for him. I think he's another one of these guys. He he likes. He loves Buffalo. He likes the city. But he just despises the losing and the losing. It just gets to him and has gotten to him. And he has told Adams that he is going to test free agency and, you know, I don't blame them. I mean, As I said that with Michael and Reinhart and rest of them that You know, it's just They don't want to be around that losing anymore, And that's what this organization has been since they've been in it and same thing with McCabe. So he's told them that you know he's going to test free agency and see what happens. But It is going to be interesting. I think he'll find a team because it's free agency and You know, it's stupid time and every you know, so I think he'll be able to find a team that will be interesting to see what kind of contract he can get. What kind of money he can get. Paul. He's not a right shot. He's a left shots. That's bad news for him, right. The right shot defenses seriously like we talked about that yesterday. That's that's the big market, right shot defense and Maybe he could take a picture of himself holding the other stick and send the teams and confuse them..

Rogers has one year before he hits unrestricted free agency. Another disgruntled star quarterbacks already decided he's reporting to training camp and Texans quarterback to Shawn Watson. Watson is reporting to Houston camp to avoid $50,000 a day and finds, but he still does want to be traded. The Texans are reportedly asking for some combination of five high draft picks and starting caliber players for Watson, including three first round picks within that Odyssey insider, Armando Salguero says it should not surprise that the Dolphins check in on the possibility of trading for Watson.

"Their own power wouldn't have been the player. I am sure they looked at everyone, but was he always on track to be number one? And even maybe thinking about trading the pick if that ever came into play I think once the world championship was played, and he played for team Canada Going up against NHL players. And but yet You know, here they are in the third period of the final game, and he played half the period. You know, and you know, he they weren't afraid to put him out in those certain situations, and he thrived in it. And I think he opened a lot of eyes in that world championship the way he played. You know, he still they just kept giving him Gerard Gallant has kept giving him more and more ice time and more and more responsibility, and he kept thriving on and I think that kind of sealed it right before that. I don't think he was the consensus there were. There were some people are saying, Well, I don't know if he's the guy, but I think once that all happened, I think there was no question he was the guy. Well, Hamilton joining us on the West ER hotline, Paul They got a 2nd 1st round pick in Isaac Rosen because they traded Rasmus risk the line in to the Philadelphia Flyers. So Your initial reaction to that trade of first and a second and a player. And, uh, has it changed over the course of the last three days of you as you've had a chance to chew on it a little bit. Yeah, I was shocking. You know, I never Thought that you could get the first round pick for Erasmus was to line in, but As you then I think you had to take the two trades and then look at it and then understand what's going on in the National Hockey League because You're you're going to say to yourself and you're going to be right. Well, wait a minute. Reinhart's better than Bristol line in so why did they get a better return unrest, Aligning. Well, The simple fact of the matter is in the National Hockey League right handed shooting defenseman are at a premium. And the you know they they they are going to fetch you more. And for whatever reason, which I Probably can't explain. You know, Bristol Lion has an excellent reputation around the league. And there are a lot of people like Fletcher of the Flyers, who think they're getting a Really, really, really, really, really good defenseman. So and he had that reputation. So you know the the value of a right handed shooting defenseman that a lot of people in the league feel is a very good defenseman is more Then what a lot of people considered as a winger. Yes, Reinhardt did place some center near the end of last year. But for the most part, has been a winger in his career. And so that's why you know, risk the line and would fetch you more than Reinhardt would. And I talked to Adams about that. Because, you know, I was thinking about it as the day was going on, and you know, talking to people, and that's basically you know, talking to some scouts and talking to some people that Right handed shooting defenseman right now in the national hockey who has who's big and is willing to hit has more value right now than what a winger in of Reinhardt's case would We have Paul? Why on right handed shot? Is there so much value for that specific treat? Just because there's more lefties and righties and the Sabres for a couple of years, bucked the trend. I mean, they had all these right handed shooting defenseman, and then they had to play like Monteux on the left side. Which you don't see all that often. If you think about it, you know, see right handed shooting defense and playing the left side. For whatever reason, it's easier for a left handed shooting defense from to play on the right side. Rasmus Dahlin did it his whole career before he went into the NHL, which makes me wonder if he's going to wind up doing in the NHL because the Sabres are back to that now they went from having a bunch of right handed shooting guys. Uh, you know the access of them and then Montoursville gone and Mr Line is gone and Borgens gone, all right, Shooting defenseman, and you know, they're They're going to have to go with some lefties, Probably on the right side. So, um It will be interesting to see you know who's going to wind up doing that? Paul Hamilton on the Western hotline. Alright, Paul, So that's the one trade, the rest the line and trade and, you know, talking about the shock of the value. Part of the shock, I think is that he's an unrestricted free agent. Maybe he'll stay in Philly because to give up that kind of price for a U F A. A pending U F A Think you're going to probably want to sign him. I'm trying to make the last guy that got traded for a first and a second on a U F A deal. It's just, you know, like Taylor Hall was expiring, You f A and it was a rental. That was only a second round pick for Chuck Fletcher. To make that move. I would guess they're going to commit to him. With Reinhardt. You might see the Panthers do the same that they might want to commit to Sam Reinhart, who in his basically his his goodbye, said that he was always open to a long term contract here and multiple GMs for whatever reason. The organization and and Ryan Hearts can't they could never come to terms on it. They could never get the Sabres to buy in or get Reinhart on the right number. But he ends up leaving and his his Comments going out the door were that he was always interested in staying longer. But this is where we got to. Yeah, and he was and he he never really talked about. But how many times you know if I talk to you about it, saying You know if I'm Ryan Howard, I'd be rather miffed by the whole thing that we know how come Skinner and everybody else gets gets paid, and I don't As far as term, you know, As for a length, you know he always got the short term bridge deals and one year contracts and that type of thing and Don't blame him. I would be pretty miffed about it, too..

"I wouldn't go over eight. His skin in, I think has played much better than Darlene has throughout his career so far, and their young starts. You know? So you know, he got over eight million Ekblad for the Florida Panthers is over $8 million. I don't understand that one. I mean, these are pretty good defenseman, but not not eight million in my mind at all. But the Florida Panthers they like to over pay for goalies and over pay for a lot of things. So, um, you know, that's what they did there. So you know, if if, uh, in Darlene's case, he might be open to a contract if you're over $8 million, But if I'm the sabers, I don't think I go there. You know, but if I could wrap him if if he would accept 6.5 for eight years Find the sabers. I would do that. But I don't think the player would want to do that. I think the player would be looking for two or three year bridge deal where you know he can really Play like Rasmus Dahlin is supposed to be playing and try to capitalize on that. That's what I would be trying to do if I were him with with the trade stuff. We were discussing this in the first hour and I don't I don't know the answer. I'll ask you. I'm not sure if you know the answer, either. Amidst this discussion of teams not having access at this point, apparently to Jack Eichel's medical information teams that might be interested in trading for him reports yesterday that the Rangers and the Wild still did not have access To the medical information, is it Is it possible? That could Jack Eichel and or his agent basically just give all of their medical information to any of these teams that want to know what's going on with his neck. Sure, I mean, they could, but they can't contact Jack Eichel's agent, or Jack likely is under contract. Nudge. Nudge, Wink wink. Yes, Mhm, But you know they can't do that. So although not supposed to Paul, but you know Well, if all of a sudden they came up with the medical records You're going to get a tampering charge. Well, you don't have to tell us. Yeah, right. You know what? To tell the Sabres. It came up the medical and, of course, Strip your Stanley Cup if yeah, uh, I mean, You know, you know, Adams is waiting to get further deeper into conversations. Now from what I'm reading, tear it. Singles records are the blues are fine with that. You know, as far as you know, sharing terrorists, ankles, records and that type of thing. Adams, for some reason, has decided that all right, we're going to really need to Be deeper into trade discussions that, you know, maybe this is a real serious offer that we're considering accepting. And now we'll let that I mean they've got I would think You know, they've got to be able to To give the other team these records before a trade actually will happen. I mean, I guess the thing is, When does Kevin Adams think the time is right to be able to do that? I can't imagine. He would say no all the way through and expect to get maximum amount value for Jack Eichel when the other team's going well. You know, that's a pretty significant injury here. We we would like the medical records and you want us to give you all this back in return for Jack, uncle and you're not going to let us investigate this? Okay, let's go ahead. I'm sorry. Little poker game. Like all right, Let's say you think he's going to be 100% healthy? Chris Terreri or whoever the GMS Bill Garin, like, Alright, we've agreed on what the package would be. Okay, so we've got a Framework on a deal. Okay, here are his medical records like the Sabres would fully expect that no matter what happens, the wild the Rangers could look at the medical be like this is fine, but they're going to go back to the Sabres and say, hope. Well, I don't know about this right? We're going to pull a couple pieces off the table. So you get that that little bit of Ah, and whenever talk of war Poker poker face Whatever. And I think it may be. Kevin Adams wants to do it because he wants the person involved Jury or Garin. And, you know, I don't know if this is a concentrated strategy, Paul just an idea. He wants them to feel like they've got I call on the finish line. Come on. You already agree? You know you want to do right right instead of months to think about it and other team and getting every team to kinda come in a little bit lower. You get somebody right there. Come on, sign on. This started line. Let's go. We're ready to make this happen. That's that's my best way to try and spin. It is why they would do it this way. Yeah, there Whereas all right, we We basically have the framework of the deal. Yeah, Now, you now you just need to feel OK here at the medical records. You just want to go through it, but we basically have the framework of a deal. As you said. It's like Well, now you've seen the medical records, and now now we're going to try to make a deal once you've seen them and the other team, saying well, This doesn't look great to us type of thing. So, yeah, You're right. Where now? Adams and say, Well, wait a minute. We basically had a deal here. You know, in the medical records aren't that bad type of a thing? You pretty much knew. From what we told you what this is gonna be. And you have the framework of a deal so he might you're right. He might be wanting to do it that way. Honestly, it might be that at that point instead of Let's say that that happens in Bill Garin comes back with something, Kevin Anderson say, Like, Listen, we like your end of the framework. If you're a little concerned, let's talk about what else we might have to throw in like the Sabres at a third round pick, or they had a They had a conditional thing that would protect that other team a little bit right, like the Sabres, at least in this kind of scenario could get the pieces that they know that they want on the table. And then if there's any sort of pushback instead of pulling one of those pieces off, the Sabres would go a little further to try. Fine. What do I gotta do to finish this? You know, you need a third round pick that becomes a second if he misses this year. Or something. I'm just like thinking about if they have any sort of Game theory or however, they would play this out. Yeah. I mean, you could tweak it, but you would still have the framework of the deal that you made before you gave up the records. And you would know that Rossi or Boulder. Whoever's on that. You know, those players are not untouchable. Like you just had him on the table. You know, I know I can get those guys from you. Right, And it might be now in Minnesota's case. You know, I think Buffalo has probably has to take some salary back to be able to make the whole thing work. With with Michael, even though Minnesota has gotten rid of some salary. You know, I still think there are certain situations where they are going to have to help out. And take some take them salary back like Subotica and that kind of that kind of a deal. But you know, the other pieces have to be pretty solid. I think, especially if you're going to take some salary back from another team and take a player that you don't particularly want. That's what I was curious about, because whether it's the because of the somewhat of the uncertainty over the medical situation, flat cap. Uh um I don't know. Whatever. Or maybe teams don't get the medical records at any point Would retaining salary be the answer? Any or all of those issues. Just say all right, You know what Don't worry about it will keep X amount of dollars. Absolutely not. There's there's zero chance they are. They do. They are not keep doing the dead money thing. That they haven't done it for years. They Pakula's will not let them do that. They did it like for the end of Taylor Hollis Contract, and Pominville is the last one. Maybe two, right? Yeah, they they they did it like all right..

"ST Louis, which I didn't see coming price. For Montreal. Like I don't know. Does that idea maybe now get less likely? Because originally, hey, the cracking. Maybe we're going to all of this cap space. Whereas now, all right, we've got these big name, big money, guys that if we want to be good right away. Maybe we can do that. And if they're going that route, then suddenly guys like a postal, which maybe was unlikely in the first place are almost completely out the window. Right. Well, if they if they man, it's so interesting because the vague the Vegas The Vegas expansion went away. It went and they were in the Stanley Cup finals. You know, one year after starting their team I mean, that was unprecedented. Nothing even close to that had ever happened. And I don't know. Like what What? What is Seattle? What should Seattle be trying to accomplish? Should they be trying? I mean, you'd love to duplicate what? What Vegas did, but GMs Making terrible deals with Vegas led to a lot of that, right, Florida. It's well documented, You know, like like teams just didn't didn't Accurately evaluate their players, and they they made trades to protect guys. They probably shouldn't have protected and gave up assets that really helped Vegas hit the ground running. I I want to Want to bet against that happening again. Like if I'm Seattle? I don't think I want to take Johansson or do Shane oral post so I might take some just to help me get to a salary threshold. But I don't think I want to load up on contracts that other teams in the league appear to be eager to dump and I'll put price right in that same same category, like Start Start, start from scratch and build your team. Don't spend $10 Million on a goalie or seven plus or $8 million on Ryan Johansen or mad to Shane or Kylo postal like Two unless you have to to get to the salary threshold, Otherwise, I I think you can build and you know Think you can respect a team in expansion not being in the Stanley Cup final the first year like it just shouldn't happen that way. So I know maybe we need like a reality. Check on what expectations should be for Seattle going into this thing, because I just can't fathom that it's going to happen twice in four years that a team is going to go through an expansion draft. And they're going to explode out of the gate and be one of the best teams in hockey. You know, for the foreseeable future. I just It's not supposed to work that way. And I doubt that it will work that way again. I really wonder too. What if Skinner does not waive his no movement clause. Who's the Who's the next guy on there? I think that's that's an interesting question to wonder how that would have all shaken out, but Jeff Skinner and we've talked about this and people were wondering if it would happen. He did what Carey Price did he said, Sure. You know, you can do that because nobody thinks they'll take them Take them, But it helps protect another guy on the team. So he gets his name put on the list of by the way, if they were to choose Kylo post, So oh, my God. Like what a gift That would be for the Buffalo Sabres, right? I mean, we all agree that would be a great thing to happen. I don't see it happening. But when I heard that I'm like, okay, let's roll. Let's do this. Um, you know, get it. Not that he's you know, he started playing better. We all know that towards the end of last year, But do the Sabres really need Kyla Pasta on the roster and his salary right now? Of course not given everything you just said, and what they're trying to do, But I wonder what Who was next in line of Jeff Skinner does not agree to be put on on the expansion list. My guess and we'll get into this with Paul Hamilton at four o'clock Paul will be beyond with us and probably every day this week with the way the week will will shake out, although we won't have a lot of news between now and Wednesday. Until that roster freeze expires. But, um my guess would be Aspelin. Sale would have been the odd man out there. Um, because it seems Paul's Paul's asserted quite strongly that ownership is really bullish on th Thompson for maybe not the best reasons. Um, you know, he's the last. Well, it's not the last. They've got a draft pick. Dr Ryan Johnson, developing playing college hockey at the University of Minnesota. But the return in the O Reilly trade is th Thompson right now, tangibly like that's the guy and to expose him or lose him. I think maybe the Agulhas just felt like they couldn't stomach that, so I always felt like Respecting Paul's. Knowledge on that subject that he'd be protected. I think Don Granado has spoken highly of Andrew's Byork. I think he would have been protected. So I think aspirin probably would have been the odd man out and Skinner Making himself available for this saves the Sabres the trouble of potentially losing Rasmus aspirin, but that's just you know, I'm just connecting dots there, but that's my best guess. And then the other thing was, um, didn't didn't real quick. Didn't Kevin Adams say wasn't there the, um What trade? Was it? Was it the trade for Taylor Hall? The how he acquired another graphic, and he said, That's something we have to look at. With expansion draft coming and things like that. Is that so this leads me to. Maybe they do have a deal in place for them not to take Borden like that's the whole purpose of acquiring that extra draft pick they acquired. Yep, they very well could And, um, you know, uh, so you know, Losing him? Maybe isn't a concern if you're cutting atoms, and maybe that's why you're handling this the way you're handling it, because you know you're going to get something for risk The line and That you want some asset of some kind draft pick prospect, whatever. And if you're comfortable, the Sabres do have 10 picks in the entry draft. The draft is seven rounds long, so they doubled up in a couple of rounds and they've got extra assets if they want to play with one to protect. Someone from Seattle taking them. I think maybe they're equipped to do that. I don't know how much urgency they would feel to do that. But it's something that sell, possibly, I think is, uh, is realistic. All right. We're gonna spend a lot of time today on this because I believe in and we'll get the the guys in on this after we take a break here that the next 345 days have the potential to be like the most important period of time for the Sabres franchise. And really in the next few years, I think that the direction and the opportunity that they have if they make the trades that we're expecting them to make Um, they are essentially starting over. Um And yes, there are guys here that we like Dylan cousins, Rasmus Dahlin, maybe at the very top of the list. But if you're getting younger You're starting from scratch again, and I think it's a very important It's a very important week for the future of the Sabres here, I think and I don't think that that can be overstated. So we'll get into that as we go. As I said Paul Hamilton will join us at four o'clock. We'll, um we'll spend some time and some other things to the open championship concluded. I don't have Don't Don't Mike nor Brian. Brian is on vacation. And Mike has the day off, so I don't have them to gloat over. Uh, but I had the top four and six of the top eight. That's what picking chalk will get you Sometimes I guess I played it safe and, uh, and was rewarded, so we'll spend a little time on the open championship. Red Sox and Yankees played over the weekend sales of big Yankee fan. I'm sort of Getting back in touch with my Red Sox fandom. I'm going to play tonight. Downtown against the Blue Jays. Um, so we'll spin that around a little bit, too. And Sal, We're just about a week away from training camp for the bills, right? Yes. A week from Wednesday is their first project. All right, Well, we'll spin that around two. As we go..

"Western hotline, we're going to get to Tony Ferrari from Darfur prospects dot com. Uh, Tony, I just want to be able to to get this hear from Tony. He is the editor. He's the chief editor at Dover prospects dot com. I believe I have that right, Tony, right? Is that correct? Yeah. Managing Editor Dog prospects dot com. Excellent. Fantastic. And Tony is joining me right here on the Western Hotline. I appreciate you taking the time this afternoon to join us here, Tony so exciting times for you guys, especially because we're now less than a week until round one of the NHL draft, And certainly this draft class is one that has been talked about for quite some time just because it doesn't necessarily feature that number one star studded prospect that we've seen over the years for so many years. But what are your thoughts overall? On this draft class and where it stacks up. It's been a really interesting year because like you said, there hasn't been that number one guy. There is no Sidney Crosby, Rasmus, Colleen Jack Eichel. Even there isn't a player of that level. So there's about seven or eight players that realistically have a chance to be the best player in this draft clock. Without kind of being too hot, cakey or anything, so it's really interesting to see how many different names have been at the top of different boards. Tony. So with the Sabres. They're picking number one, obviously, after winning the draft lottery this year, and I think a lot of people have thrown out that own power is that quote unquote consensus pick with the number one selection for the Sabres. Where do you sit on Owen Power? Is he the number one pick in this year's draft? Or do you believe that there's still some room for Buffalo to maybe consider somebody else at the top. Well, I think all in power has been the guy that everyone's defaulted to because he is at six ft. Six defense minutes over £200 and in place, So projected Lee. He has such high end tools that you're like, is this Works out in the future. If if you can kind of project out and work these tools into his game a little bit more consistently. He could truly be a special defenseman. Who Who is that top pair guy that maybe him and Rasmus Dahlin could really lock down the back end. But I do think Buffalo has a few options. And I think the two other guys that they're considering our back souvenirs. The center out of Michigan who played with Oh in power, who is Just maybe the most mature to a player in the draft. He's so smart plays with such a pace and intelligence. It's just really fun to watch. He's a really hard working guy. But he's not that number one center that you're looking for at the NHL level at the kind of at the top of the draft, so he gets knocked down from that. But the other guys think Buffalo's considering there were reports that last week that they're talking to him. Is William Echlin, who is the winner from Sweden. He played on the top on the top line on for your Garden SHL team, which is the top men's league in Sweden, and he was a fantastic player he played with Alexander Holt, who was the top 10 pick from the New Jersey doubled last year and heat and William Macklin was the one driving that line. He was really the one pushing the pace. And Alexander hold of the complementary player, So seeing him be able to do that at the SHL level against men. Well, he's only 18 was really impressive. So spoil alert. A, uh Tony has his final rankings up at Dobra prospects dot com. Feel free to check that out. And the two guys, you just mentioned veneers and Ekland. They're they're very high on top of this list, so I recommend checking it out. If you want to get to know a little bit more about the prospects going back to power, though, really quick. I just want to get your overall thoughts on his game and just what stands out about him what he needs to improve, and, um I mean, it's likely that he's going back to Michigan going forward, at least for next season. But whether that is the right move for a guy like power going into his second season at Michigan. Yeah, I think my biggest gripe with own power all years in the fact that there was so much uncertainty as to whether he'd take that second season at Michigan because I think with the tools he has in the raw package that he has because he is such an excellent skater. He's such an excellent physical presence. When he wants to be six, ft six He checks every box that you want to check when you go down the list of tools and everything. The big thing with him is I think he needs to mature a little bit refine something his defensive play at times. You can get a little bit leaning because he has such a bigger player he can over rely on his region stuff like that. So when he kind of work on those things another year in Michigan, I think there really is a chance that he ends up being at that top pair numbered one or two defenseman that every team wants, but My biggest thing is go back to Michigan. Take your time. You don't need to rush a kid like this because of the Russia kid like this, you could end up with a player ends up being Tyler Myers, who everyone in Buffalo is fairly familiar with perfectly serviceable player. But that's not the guy you want. At first overall, you want a guy that's coming out in being a star on your team. Tony Ferrari from Dr prospects dot com Joining us right now on the West, her hotline on W. G R, So we talked about own power potentially being number one. You also mentioned Matthew Veneers and William Ackland, possibly going number one. So the Sabres, they're they're likely trying to acquire another topic in this year's draft, whether that be with the Ducks at number three or the King's at number eight. In a potential Jack Eichel trade. Maybe no Sam Reinhart trade could net them another first rounder. But who are some of the other notable names in that first part of the draft. That really stand out to you in in really being a possible player that if the Sabres.

"And do you feel it's the right move for the Sabres and Granada going forward? Yeah, absolutely. That's no surprise at all. Um, I I knew he thought a lot about them, and I think He's right. They were instrumental in what went on for the same and how they improved. Especially in Girardi's case with the defense. We just talked about Yoki Ha, you and Darlene. They could relate to Girardi. I mean, they both played against him. So they they've seen them on the ice. You know, he played right through 2000 and 19. So you know, he gets that instant credibility of he wasn't retired 25 years ago when the game was different. You know he can. He can relate to the game as it's played today. Now. Yeah. Rasmus Dahlin doesn't play the game like Dan Girardi did. But still, he can relate to certain situations that that Darlene can get himself into our that Yoki, har You or Samuelson, orb organ or any of the young guys can get themselves into So he got a lot of respect that way, and I think he was also key and them improving their games. Matt Ellis I. There was no question in my mind when Matt Ellis retired. He was going to be a coach. I just thought well, when's it going to happen? I mean, I've watched him run skates, you know, during prospects camp, I mean, they'd have him out there and and he would do it. You know how the players used to arrive in town in August and I'd be out there talking to some of them. It wasn't a Sabres practice. Somebody had to run it. And since Matt Ellis was over there with the program's over at Harbor Center, you know he would run practice for him, and it was just like an NHL practice. And they appreciated. You know, he made it hard and did the drills that he did. Um Matt Ellis is very bright about the game. He was the type of guy that analyzed the game. He was the first guy to the arena, the last guy to leave always in the gym, always an example he had to be that way because he didn't have the talent to play any other way. You know, that's how he was going to make the NHL and that's how he made his mark in the NHL is by doing all these things, and it's carried over into his coaching too. So, yeah, no surprise at all that he would want them on the staff. Last thing I'll ask you here, Paul before we let you go on this wet and rainy Saturday, just with the your your thoughts overall on how the Sabres are going to approach uh, the next few days after the expansion draft, so the expansion draft takes place on the 21st. The transaction frees lifts on the 22nd at one o'clock and then the next day on the 23rd is round one of the NHL draft. Do you believe that there's going to be any big move made in terms of maybe an Michael trader Ryan Hart trade so they can get those first round picks this year to keep to help build your prospects system a little bit more. Uh, do you think the Sabres draft own power number one overall, like many people expect, how do you think things kind of play out? I I know it's asking for protections and you don't do predictions. But just how What's your gut instinct when you're looking at The next few days after the expansion draft. I would be surprised if they didn't draft power. You know, I think that's their direction. They're leaning in. Um You know, I am a little bit surprised that Reinhart is, um, Adele. Yeah, that trade is so much different than the Eichel trade. So again, you know, did you just not get the offers that you think you need to get to trade him? Um It wouldn't shock me at all that as soon as I mean, I think there's no question as soon as that trade freeze is lifted. I think you're going to hear deals, announced trades announced. I think teams are going to have trades ready to go. You know, As I said, just because you can't make a trade doesn't mean you can't make a phone call. I mean, you can still call another GM and talk about a trade and get something ready. So when the trade freeze is lifted, then you know, just all you need to do is basically send it into the NHL and announce it. So, you know, I think I think, uh, on the 22nd. It will be very busy around the NHL. Um, I don't know the the Eichel thing. You just It's impossible to know Only because of the injury. You know what teams are thinking. How big of a chance are they willing to take? You know? Do they think the injury is going to be fine? Do they agree with Jack? As far as the surgery goes, or do they agree with the Sabres that they'd rather not have it done? But what Jack change his mind if he went to a team like Colorado Thinking I have. I have a chance to win the Stanley Cup here. Why, and why in the world would I just not agree to do it their way? You know, right that he's not going to do that with the Sabres because He doesn't want to be here. But you know if he's going to go to a team like Colorado or Vegas or somebody like that, he might say, You know what? I want to win the cup and I want to be in the playoffs. Let's do it their way, right? Well, Paul is always your time as much appreciated on the show, and also just throughout the time on W, G. R and, um, hope you enjoy the rest of your rainy weekend and we'll talk again. I'm sure on Monday sounds good. Thanks for having me alright. Paul Hamilton joining us on the Western hotline with the latest on the Sabres and what's going to happen again? The Sabres will have to have their protection list for the expansion draft in by five o'clock today. At some point tomorrow. We should know who they left unprotected who they protected as long as the rest of the NHL and then the speculation and can begin Who to Seattle Take Who does Seattle not take and we go from there. 80305 51 8885 52 5 50, Speaking of Seattle, we'll go out to Seattle coming up next years. We're going to reach out to Chris Daniels from King five news in Seattle to talk about the crack in their preparations for the expansion draft and also their preparations for the 2021 22 season. That's coming up next year is I'm Britain, Wilson and I'm filling in for Negeri once again on Sports Talk Saturday on W G R w G R Sports Radio 5 50.

"Start talking about their fourth or fifth best guys as the return in the Eichel trade and my desire to take on that contract, even though I have, uh I mean, I have a sinkhole of a problem in goal. I don't have any NHL goalie signed. Right now, like I'm in real trouble, but I, You know, it's got to be the right trade. I got to be getting the right pieces back. If I'm going to take what is quick to more years at six million, or 5858. Um, you know, like he solves a problem in a certain way for me and doesn't really because of this point I've already made about Opus. Oh, and the salary cap for the Sabres doesn't really create a problem for me. You know if it if it avails me of the right guys coming back. I can live with Jonathan quick in his in his current state with that salary for a couple of years, because by the time he's done with that contract, and I'm done with him in that contract I'm probably just getting ready ideally to get going again. So it's not a big deal to me. If I have to take on that money, you know, it's not the best case scenario but again. The target is moving to me, depending on what I'm getting back. And you know I to me it would be worth it if you're getting either of their top two guys. Then fine you want You want to make me take it now. I don't know. I haven't looked at quick You got Can you get to keep friendly? Quick, quickly? Yes, I'm quick. Yes. Um, is he is he? No move, like is he? You know he's over status in the left. Nothing, Nothing. Okay, well, then, you know the new would convince him. I know. Maybe he signed it long enough ago, before everyone got those. Um, you know, if you have to convince him to come here, um fine, like I I got I have. No, I have no problem taking that if I get the right return. Yeah, that could be good. I mean, there's there's quite a I don't. I don't like saying this. I'm being a little cheeky here, but there's kind of a freedom and no expectations of winning it. All right. Like you want to make the playoffs someday. A When B. Could the Sabres get away with sort of using a date? Probably not, And that's something the teams wouldn't do. No, usually right. Like what if they said three years is that something that they would think is bad would be bad for their fans to hear. I mean, how? How obvious do they want to be about this right? It depends. I guess on what a trade like that looks like if they trade Jack Eichel to the Kings, and they get to young pieces and Jonathan quick. They can go to the press conference and be real. Or they go to the press conference. Say, Like, Look, Jonathan, Quick is won Stanley Cups We're back. I mean, just I don't know. I want them to be real at all times. And what's real here? I think or what it will be is like we're starting over. But you know those those words are not always right. What our teams want to put it. I I I doubt that they would if really pressed. Um And this might even be an honest answer to an extent like they might know. In their heart of hearts. It's going to take a long time but putting a date on it. I think it's hard. It would be hard for me to put a date on it. Honestly, aside from saying this year, it's not happening. Because I don't know how quickly and I don't know who really knows how quickly any of the guys they get in return in a Jack Eichel trade or Sam Reinhart trade. Are going to be impactful NHL players, nor do I think they know exactly when Rasmus Dahlin is going to hit his peak or Dylan cousins like, How quickly is he going to be a really impactful NHL player? It could happen quickly. It could take two or three years for that group of guys and they're all not going to emerge at the same time, Probably, but for you to have a fully formed group of guys that when you're starting out are between the ages of 19 and 22. Saying. I mean, it's hard to put a target on that, I think, like so that I mean, I sound like I'm rehearsing for the news conference with a cop out of a refusal to answer the question, but I think legitimately, it's hard to put a date on it. It's hard to put a date on it, and you don't want to rule out the possibility that it happens fast like in in the best case scenario, like I I think experience is overrated. I think development maybe even is overrated. It's certainly I think, overplayed or over over discussed by teams teams use it as a crutch or an excuse, well development. But, you know, put your best guys on the ice. And apart from that, like, I just think who knows how fit how fast or how long it should take for a team of that short to be competitive, like making the playoffs and even It. On a team like that. It's just sort of getting better and giving like we've had that here. We've had that with the bills. We had that with the sabre team before the cancelled season, If not since Where going into that? Well, they had the year off. And then it was kind of starting a new again but that there was a buzz about some of the guys there and like what that was going to look like. Coming out of it. And then the year after that, they were great. So that that can work. You know that can work people are going to have you know, Some people are just going to shut the door to them. But You know you can. You're going to have some sort of new, fresh kind of attitude about who's on the roster and what that can be. And you know that can take That can that can be fun. That can be fun. So maybe if you see a team there where certain individuals at least look promising and look like you know, these are guys we can really go with. Then they have to do what they didn't do. Well, the last time Which is it's through the rest of it right? And so you know, that's not today's problem, I guess, but Well, Corey had a bunch of dates there. I I had trouble. With like the the order. It's a lot. There were kind of all over the place, but it's too much it is. It is a week until You have to put it put in your protected list like that's next Saturday. Mm. And I didn't think about the one he had about how the league has a roster freeze after that. From the Sunday to the Is it a Wednesday that the expansion draft or whatever that is? Yeah, it runs runs up close to the draft itself. The NHL draft 21st. Yeah, right. Okay. That's two days before the entry draft, right. So for a few days there, you can't make those moves, But that's when you're talking about them, and then You know you You hit us with them after that, right at the entry draft, Probably Yeah, but this proposal thing would be before it'll be next week at the latest by next Saturday, as would any sort of if there's cycle news or anything. They want to. Do something and then be able to have the protected list that they want. Then that would also be be next week. Do you know when you want to when and where you want to be for that news Like What kind of state you want to be at work. Do you want to be? Yes, Kel News? Yes. Um, I have for Five or six days running now. Um, when I wake up whenever that is four, A.m. five a. M six A.m.. And I press my my iPad to see what time it is. I will see notifications with emails there and There had there was a day this week where there were like six notifications there. From when I had last looked at it from when I fell asleep until whatever hour that was again sometime early in the morning, and I got excited the day there were a bunch of because I like Oh, my God is one of those from the Sabres. So I wanted to happen while I'm asleep and wake up to it. I want to wake up to this trade and, like, go go put the coffee on and sit down. And like, okay, what do I have? That is what happened to me with Antonio Brown, but that's kind of screwy because like that, was it 10 at night and I was asleep. The Sabres were in Chicago. Remember that? And so I woke up to check the score and Twitter was all about Antonio Brown like you. Wait. I think I better get up, right, so not not asleep asleep, but something like that well. Thinking about certain other big sabers, news events where we were, You know, some of them. You'll remember we might get into that as we get through the day. 80305 50 is the number not just doing Sabres today we've got Jeff Erickson from Roda Wire will do Fantasy football.

"That is Sabres General manager Kevyn Adams speaking about the draft class. And yesterday. The question I believe was was asked in the way of, you know, you know, I think it was Mookie Hawkins, who asked this question. And he asked, you know about Oh, and power, Just like you know. How do you feel about him? And, you know, is he going to pretty much be the next you know Josh Allen of this draft or something like that. And Kevin Adams had that response. He didn't necessarily mentioned Oh, and power and Listening to it again, You know, um, certainly it It leaves a little doubt in your mind as to if the savers are actually going to draft him. I mean, yes, I get it. The Sabres have been busy with the the coaching search and coach watch and figuring out what they're going to do. And they hired Don Granato. And yesterday A story comes out from Mike Morey Allen NHL dot com. Talking with Own power. Little bit of his future and whether he's going to make the jump to the NHL or go back to Michigan and play another year with the Wolverines, which I think is absolutely fine. Power can do that veneers can do that. Ken Johnson. Obviously he should do that. But Looking at the top of the draft, and we just talked with Will Scotch Great job with the scouting report on YouTube, and, uh, he's at Scow Ching on Twitter. He does a great job breaking down these these prospects and putting them in their own tears and rankings and He definitely said something that I would agree with. I would agree with the fact that I'm not necessarily so sold on Owen Power. Yes, I think Owen power had a good World Championship, and I think that at times he really he really did flashes potential at the car at the collegiate level, but There are certain things about Owen Powers game that Still needs some work. And you know another year college could potentially help with that. But Will scour each pretty much put it as you know, it took him time to adjust it with certain things. And there were certain aspects of his game that necessarily didn't come about, you know. Right away or didn't come about at all during the season, so We will have to see. But I'm looking at this year's draft that I'm looking at the top of the draft, and I really do like Matthew Veneers. I really like Matthew B. Ba nears a lot and if you if you missed it, and it's been a while since I I wrote these prospects Profiles, but I did write about Owen Power and I did write about Matthew veneers on our website. W gr 5 50 dot com. And Looking at Both of their games. Matthew Veneers is Definitely a player that people no matter where he's going to get drafted. People are going to love Matthew Veneers. He is a 200 ft player. He goes 110% 100% of the time. And he he's just never going to give up on a play. That's exactly what people in buffalo are going to love about Matthew Veneers and with Owen Power, and this is a and I hate bringing this up. Because this has been brought up in the past and talked about here, especially in Buffalo. If you're drafting Owen Power for size in skating. Do not expect him to be Zidane. Oh, Ciara. Tyler Myers when people when we drafted him, and everybody was just like, Oh, he's got to become the Sedano Ciara, please. Zidane Oh, Ciara's. They do not grow on trees. They do not come every once in a while. They are once in a lifetime players and the way this game is going Players like Zidane, Achara. Yes, they're still going to be around, but they're not going to be many of them. And for people looking at Owen power and thinking that Oh, well, he's got the six ft six frame £215 yada yada. Well, if he adds another £20 and adds a little muscle and gets tough, He can be the city. No trial. No, We cannot expect that of these guys, especially in today's game. A lot of these type of defenseman are going to Make the they're going to develop into these very good skating defenseman with heads up all the time and making these really nice plays and Owen Power is one of those guys who probably has one of the who probably has arguably the best vision of especially the defenseman in this draft class. He skates really well, but if you watch him, his head is always up, and he's always looking around trying to make the best passes and trying to make the best players. He's got very good vision. Very good hockey sense. And, you know, there are reasons why he is projected to be where he is at number one just because of the potential that he has Especially if he goes back to college this year and really puts it all together and starts to dominate at the collegiate level that will make that pick even more of a Oh, yeah, for sure, That's why he was drafted number one. However. Like Will said there are certain things with his game that there are still plenty of question marks about And I personally really like Matthew veneers. And if I am the Sabres at number one, I'm probably taking Matthew veneers. But Then again. Like I brought up You look at his Potential projection and and, you know, looking ahead at what he could become if he becomes a really nice second pair defenseman, especially on the left side. And if you have Rasmus Dahlin here in Buffalo as the number one defenseman who you know he's shown over the past few years that he can have that potential to become That top number one defenseman for an organization and and be able to do all he can do. The Sabres have Darlene and power 12. That's a really, really nice 12 punch on your defensive group, and especially with Ryan Johnson coming in who could be the Third or second pair left handed defenseman on the on the right side. You've already got Henry. Okay? How are you? And you've also got Will Borgen, Who's there? And Oscar relaxing and is a really, really.

"How are you? And Bryson. In helping them and they see a guy that Was just a player back in 2019, so he knows what the modern player is going through right now. He didn't retire 25 years ago when the game was different. Anything or well, I know the answer, but it's my job to ask you these questions. So anything new on the Michael front out of yesterday's zoom call that we learn anything. All the saber still have not changed their stance as far as the surgery goes, Uh, He was Kevin Adams has asked twice point blank if he has spoken with Michael. He didn't He just danced around it twice the second time, he did say That he had spoken, had a long conversation with pickles agent on Wednesday. So, but it doesn't you know, since he didn't really want to answer that question, it doesn't sound like that. He's had a conversation and Michael with I call in a while and If your plan is to trade him, you probably don't need to be talking to him to be quite honest with you. What are you gonna say to him? You know what would have already? You already had your conversations with him. And if your trade is the way to go, you're going to probably be talking through his agent. So what would the good conversation with an agent be in that spot? Because you're not getting through a no trade or no move. You're just Updating him on how things are going. Um, you know what? What's that conversation like Paul? Is it giving them more freedom to talk to other teams or talk to other teams? Doctors? Um It could be. You know, if you're going to make a trade, it's going to have to you would. I would think you're going to have to relent and let Iculs agent and doctors speak with the other team. They're going to want to be. Somewhat comforted too. All right, we're going to pay all this for Jack Aiko. We need to know what's going on. I think you know the trade. Whatever may be has to be further down the road, then maybe he is now Or maybe he is further down the road with the team. And has spoken to the agent and said to him, okay? You know, we're getting in the home stretch with team a And, uh, you know, we're going to let them talk to talk to you. You know, speaking to the agent, that type of thing, so I'm sure what what a good conversation being why they took so long as to update him on. You know where the trademark it is and what they're thinking. And you know, uh, to see. Maybe if the Eichel camp is willing to Relent on what they want, which I would say. Probably not. You know, it seems like both he both sides are very entrenched in their belief in what should happen, and it would be very surprising to me if one of those two sides changed. You probably answered my next question because I was thinking so the agent apparently to Associated Press, and the Athletics said they are headed toward a resolution Now I think most of us would look at that and go. Okay. That means that you know, a trade is coming. Is it? What? What are the possibilities? Paul that Adams has done all his calls. She's made all these efforts. He's gotten everybody's trade offers, and he doesn't think the right value is there and the resolution is Not to trade him at this point. I don't think he would make that decision now yet. I mean, you haven't even gotten to the draft. So, Yeah. I mean by. I mean by the draft by that Friday night, round one if we're using that as the first deadline marker by that night, what? What are the chances He could say? It's just not the right deal for us. He could, but I don't think that needs to be a deadline. Quite honestly, Next year's draft is quite a bit better than this year's draft. You just don't have the certainty of where you're going to be picking. Where you would have that in this draft. You could actually wind up better. You could wind up with a lottery pick if you if you go into next year's drafted And wind up better than what you might get in in this year's draft, But the certainty is there for this year's draft. But to me, it's not the end of the world just because you haven't made the trade by the draft. Um, there are other drafts and you know you can get first round picks in next year's draft and maybe wind up being better. You just have to wait and see. Mhm. All right, Mr Hamilton. So we think it will be well, barring a trade of one of the names that we've been talking about. We're quiet now until expansion draft list. No, I wouldn't say that. I mean, it could anything with with what this team needs to do. Something could happen this afternoon. I mean, you never never know. So no, I would never. I would not say in the least that things will be quiet. Uh, everything is just way too up in the air to know that we forgot to bring up. Maybe the Most not delicate, but one of the tougher predictions Paul Darlene's contract. He's do. I would think that would be a bridge Bridge two or 32 or three year deal. How much? Who knows? I mean, he just started playing like Rasmus Dahlin should be playing in the last X amount of games. What does that mean in the contract? Do the Sabres want to go try to get long term long and get years on it, knowing that all right? We think he's going to be better. We can maybe get a bargain here. If you're Darlene's agent, I don't think you allow that to happen. You know, I think you count on your player. You say Granados back and he's been doing pretty well. Why would I want to time and I'm doing that? Eight year deal right now, you know, I don't think his agent would want to do that. And and, you know, you guys like you know, Marner didn't give an eight year deal and he didn't want one type of thing. So I would think Darlene's side wouldn't want that. So, Yeah, I think you're looking at maybe a 23 year deal, but for a money standpoint, I don't know. I I I don't know if I don't want to guess that right now. Okay, well, and we'll let you go. And, uh, you get back to us on the money standpoint. Something like around way Howard makes you know we're we're at. Yeah, right. We're having an offer sheet discussion yesterday. You know about Kehlmann cars like the hot name in the offer sheet Rumor mill at this point. And you know if someone ever did throw an offer sheet at the Sabres on Darlene, Like, how far would you be willing to go? And it was it was really hard. I mean, I actually said Jeremy, I don't have an answer for it was. I know it wouldn't be You know you match anything, no matter what. I wouldn't just say blank. Check it and match it, But it's really hard to come up with. You know what is the right number or what is too far to go with Darlene at this point. Jeremy. Why do you torment yourself here with you, George? Offer sheets. You torment yourself so much with these And then And then the guy is always sent resign with their team and you get so upset. Maybe not be one this year. Why does the NHL not use their rules? The way they're ready to be wrote the used while we had one last year, Sebastian Aho. I know, but and that GM.

Good morning. Everyone wants to talk about here. Is there some Is there? Jack Eichel Newser. Is there Jack Eichel conversation. There's draft conversation about which players the Sabres scouts like and where from and Maybe a con contrast in reports, but we'll talk about that in a little bit. I say good morning to my two friends, one of them my Canadian friend. Happy Canada Day, Craig. Wait. Thank you. Whoa! Well, hold on. Well, that like Craig finishers at Happy Canada Day to Craig because he's the only Canadian with me riding shotgun on the show here. Good morning, Craig. Happy can Yes. Good morning, Andrew. It is a wonderful day. Happy Canada Day. Do all our friends and family back and back in Canada and, uh, Marie White Yard. Or do you have anything to say? I am offended by your comment. Did you call your family and say Happy Canada Day, But they didn't say it back to you, though. Did they marry? No, I did not call them yet because I had a busy morning being on the ice with some goalies and trying to make kids better. So I did that. But anyway, uh, I am very offended that you said the only Canadian on the shore that the new PDS Gregory, right? Um, because I am a proud French Canadian American buffalo knee in and I think I can wear all the hats at once. So I do not accept your your fences all kind of come together to y and you kind of just sit right at that point where the two come together. And then the long part that goes down. Kind of, like, right in the middle there. You don't know which way you're going to follow whatever day you wake up. No, there's no offenses. It's all inclusive. There's no offense is I am a wide open arms, wide, open type of guy, and I welcome you all in. Did you just hope that they were creed song at the Open the arms wide open? Uh, so anyway, there's a cheesy band I was I was ashamed to admit I loved Oh, go on, but Happy Canada Day riff. Happy Canada Day. Along with your favorite band of all time. Nickelback Nickelback. So well, let's not get into that because I watched some kind of monster. I've been listening to a lot of Metallica And if you just if you took Nickelback song, slap them on a metallic album, you wouldn't know the difference. That's the problem. It's just that their Canadian Happy Canada Day, everybody Cabs. Like I said, no one's really happy in Montreal. We will carry the Don Granato press conference at 11 o'clock and looking forward to hearing you know some of his answers. He's always been very good in his press conferences. His end of the year media address was fantastic. And Marty, We haven't had a chance to really chat with you since he was hired as he was hired on Tuesday. We talked about it yesterday. What was your initial thought before we get into some of the other stuff here, Sabre related when you heard the news? Were you surprised that it was don Granado? No, I was not surprised. I think we've all been, uh, an agreement that don Granado was going to be the next Sabres coach. Unless they were able to land maybe a jar gallant and somebody with a high profile like that, But I still thought that Don Granado was the leading candidate from the end of the season. When Granado got the interim job. We were like this is just to end the season and he really made it happened for himself. The way the team played the structure as to which the Sabres played with the way the younger players developed and playing much better and produced, Um it's not that the record was great. In the last 10 games, there were three and seven. The records weren't great. But these also didn't have Jack. I called in an F. Taylor Hall didn't have her exalted in Avellino soul Mark they didn't have didn't have a lot of players. Jake McCabe. Jake McCain didn't have a lot of players, but Who stepped up and you look better. Rasmus Dahlin, number one Rasmus Dahlin was 100 times better under Don Granado as numbers are not even comparable because It's two different players. Casey Middle Stat dates. Thompson Dylan cousin stayed the same, but also Dylan cousins, a 19 year old player while he turned 20. But still, uh, that just, you know, in his first year, so he's just out there to play. Jeff Skinner was better. Sam Reinhart was really, really good at center when nobody thought Sam could play center anymore, So there was so many great things. To look at Don Granado that to me and made it made perfect sense that he was gonna get a chance to continue on what he had worked on. All right. Well, we're going to hear from my thought. Rivers going to chime in there. Um, we're gonna hear from Don Granado at 11 John Vogel yesterday. The scouting staff likes all the guys from Michigan, so power will go first, and the Sabres will try to get another pick to take Matt Ben ears or can't Johnson now here's the other. Side of that last Lisovsky tweets sources Tell me the savers are higher on William Ackland than any other forward in this draft, so Where do you guys stand on this? Is this something that excites you? If the Sabres were to get back and grab another top 10 and take the Michigan Boys.

"Certainly not with the number of candidates that are available, and you know, trying to do all the due diligence and making sure you bring in the right culture and don Granado to come back, But I mean, really the most important thing for the organization's future. As it happens with Jack Eichel and all energy has to Kind of be on that that is Chris Peters from hockey sense. He was on the show with the bulldog Yesterday. Sabres Coach Watch is powered by Gen Tech Power Systems, your team for Generac home generator repairs, service and sales. So just to reiterate Two things one from today as bright mention, before you hit the brake. John Vogel from the athletic is tweeting out. The Sabres have begun or word is the Sabres have begun leading candidates? No. If they're out, Um Darren Dreger on Friday last Friday on the instigator, said he thought there might have been a coaching announcement last week. He thinks it's still possible for this week and termed Don Granado is the strong front runner. Uh, if as far as I'm trying to remember break and I were going through the list of the break in terms of guys that have been reported as actually interviewed for the job, Rick Tocchet did I think twice might add two interviews. Um Bruce Boudreau was mentioned early in the process. Rikard Gronberg, who's coaching in Sweden, worked with Switzerland. Switzerland was in Sweden with Rasmus Dahlin, among other Swedish players for quite some time. I think that's the list. And, of course, Granado. I'm not sure that anybody else has actually been reported as formally interviewed with the Sabres, So looks like they're starting to tell some guys that they're out now. Doesn't necessarily mean they're making announcement this week that could be going to a Second or third round of interviews. You know, whatever the case, maybe so we shall see how that proceeds on the Eichel front. Let's talk more about maybe another team that could be in the mix. Should the Sabres be trading their captain, and we're going to talk a little bit about Chicago. We're going to the West. Our hotline, bringing in former colleague of mine former W B E N sportscaster former W E B R when it was 9 70 news or news radio. 9 70 Dave Kerner, who works at WBBM in Chicago, joining us in the Western Hotline. What was it was a NewsRadio. 9 70. What were you guys over there at E. B. R. Uh, yeah. What? These radio 9 70? Yeah, Yeah. I grew up listening to you. You and Sam Anson. Just so you know, I grew up listening to you guys. Yeah, Yeah, We, uh That was a lot of fun. And then it was equally fun Howard to hook up with you as we did for those few years of be in and In some respects, it seems like boy that was a long time ago. In other respects, it's gone by, like a blip Now. It was a long time ago. Dave. Thanks for trying to make us both feel younger. It was It was a long time ago. I just wanted to make the younger here. I was just trying to play the card. If I listen to you growing up, people usually use it for me. I just wanted to use it on somebody else. Thanks for letting me play along. You and Hamilton. Um Chicago. Let's start there with the Blackhawks, would they? Should they be interested in Jack Eichel? Mom. Well, would they be? Yes. Should they Well, that's a That's another story altogether, that there's a few issues here. At least as I see it, um The first is Quite frankly, for me is Jack Eichel's help. What is the deal with his neck? Uh, Would he eventually go along with some other teams saying, Let's just do the regular kind of things to get your neck. Okay? Or would we say, Gee, Jack, the surgery that you're talking about? Yeah, I'm on board with that. Wouldn't be on board with it. I don't know how Stan Bowman would feel about that sort of thing if he has this interest in in Jack cycle, so there's that. The other element to me is, um, well, I think the Blackhawks I mean, they're always looking for centers they were hurting at the center position all last season. How is this going to impact them? Money wise, They're gonna have about six million bucks in cap space freed up starting next season, and that's if they don't move anybody. But that said you got Jonathan Taves and Patrick Kane at 10 million Plus and you've got some dead money now and Brent Seabrook at almost seven million who was retired. So this makes it a little more problematic to try to fit Jack Eichel in. Obviously you've got to trade away money. If you're going to get his 10 million coming in. How are you going to do that? I think for the Blackhawks sets up Bit more of a difficult proposition than it might be for a lot of other teams right now. One thing I was wondering, Dave is about where each franchise is like again, through all things being equal, maybe not necessarily focusing on the neck. But like Anaheim is turning out there trying. I think they're trying to turn over their roster. You know they they hung with the core. They haven't really been much, but you can see. Okay. Iculs going to help them turn things back around. Kings up and coming franchise. Get Eichel Rangers Really good pieces in place. Get Eichel, Who are the Blackhawks? They really haven't had Much success since the 2015 Cup. Are they still in a window where they believe they are cup contenders? I don't think so, Um.
