"rasmus dahlin" Discussed on Spittin' Chiclets

"I think Jack honestly thought that he was going to get a standing ovation. You know, he put a lot into this, you know, his game. I don't think there was too many nights when you can actually sit there and say that Jack did not give everything to this team. And I think that he was actually very surprised that the fans were bullying them. And I think that hurt, I think he was shocked, I think he was hurt. And I think there's also some media members that pushed Jack's buttons and I think Jack at times struggles with his emotions on how to deal with it. So coming off a loss in the return when you're thinking, yeah, everyone's kind of going to be like, thanks for what you tried to do here. All of a sudden, he's getting the booze. They lose and that's what that's what kind of spurred those comments that I'm not going to say. I know for a fact, but I'm guessing he regrets it a little bit, right? I mean, he's made a complete enemy out of the entire city now, whereas if he had just said like, hey, I've moved on it. It would be a little different. Yeah. Well, listen, I mean, that's the life in general, right? We make, listen, I made a shit ton of bad decisions. My career. We've got much time, you got much time. We'll get to those in a second part. Yeah, right. You know, I think Jack looking back would have would have really liked to choose words a little differently. I think there was just so much emotion. I think Jack wanted to come back here. I think he wanted to perform well. I think he wanted to win for his team. And it was just an emotional roller coaster. He gets traded for Peyton krebs. He scores the first goal. It's 20 year old kid, okay? Then all of a sudden you have Alex tuck who comes in and scores the third goal to make it three one and, you know, I think Jack was pissed off. He's a competitor. There's no question about it. He's a very, very competitive kid. But at the same time, Jack over the course of his time here in Buffalo, watch them countless time deal with the emotional side of things. He's a very emotional player, he's an emotional guy when he talks after games, and I think sometimes he just gets himself in a little bit of trouble. All right, what was the reason for the team just not let him get the surgery he preferred? Was it loyalty to the doctors? Was it an eagle thing? Why did they just let him get it? I don't know. I can't answer that question, but I'll tell you this. I think, you know, when you look at it as former players that have played in the game, you know, I think Jack did the right thing. Okay, I'll tell anybody that. I think Jack did the right thing. I think us players, no one's going to tell us what to do with our body because we're the ones that are going to have to deal with the shit after we're done the game. I mean, we've all been through this. We all have issues, you know? Like, you think that once we play all this time in the NHL and how demanding it is on your body that all of a sudden you just finish the game and everything's fine. No, there's multiple surgeries that follow, you know, I just had a surgery on my knee three and a half months ago just to continue to clean it up. I always have issues. And you got to take care of yourself. I think Jack did the right thing by holding out. It probably went longer than an expected because Jack's making $10 million a year. And there's only certain amount of teams that can fit them under their cap, right? The brightest spot for me in the Sabres this year, no doubt has been tag Thompson and I see this kid, he's enormous, his shot is one of the best shots in the league. Like, are we looking at a future guide 30 to 40 goals score? Like, this doesn't seem like a flash in the pan to you. And I know you mentioned that they didn't get much in return, but wasn't he part of that deal. The O'Reilly deal, he was, he was, but at the time it was, it didn't look like. Well, listen, I mean, when you go back to the trade and you're looking like we ended up getting four players in the trade, one guy quit halfway throughout the season and says, I hate this team so much that I'm quitting and leaving like an insane amount of money on the table and there's a few other players that were just like, you know, lower end third line guys. And then tage Thompson at the time was a first round draft pick. But after half a season in Buffalo, they ended up sending him down to the miners because he was just struggling so much. And this is the first year that we've actually seen cage Thompson come to life. I mean, he's 24 years old. He's 6 foot 7. He's 220 pounds. You know, it's taken this guy, he looked like Bambi when he was 20 years old. He was just very thin, just needed to grow into his body a little bit more, but you know, you watch him. He's got great hands. He's got a great shot. And the interesting part about it is he was put, he was put at center this year. I mean, hasn't played center. I can't even tell you how long. And Don grenado just said, we're going to try this guy at center and it's worked out very well for the team. You just mentioned dawn, like obviously he's, you know, he's done a good job of getting this group to play for each other. You know, you get videos of him talking either before or after the game. And what other reason would you credit this turnaround? I mean, obviously tuck coming in being fairly somewhat of a hometown guy. Like, what are the things that you're seeing where you could see some positivity actually going forward past this season, not just the end of the year and the doldrums of before playoffs. And kind of doing what Edmonton and Whit did for all those years. Yeah. I mean, I think the first and foremost, you're looking at a group of players, a lot of them are really young, okay? They don't even, they don't even know what the hell is going on in the league, like Peyton krebs is just, you know, he's made the sappers, he's happy to be here. Dylan cozens is only a year and a half into his playing career. And you can just go on and on and on, miss Samuelson, Rasmus dahlin. There's a young group, okay?.

"Is going to be a go to guy. He'll play over 22 minutes a night. Um and That's scary. If you were to sign, Okay, Who are you to a short term contract? He is going to be put in a situation to succeed. It's the same as Casey Mittelstaedt. The Sabres are buying these players for three years. Okay, Both players are going to be put In massive situations to succeed Yoki hard. Who's going to play with Rasmus? Dolly? He's going to play major minutes. You have Casey middle stats going to have a major opportunity on the power play. There's no Sam Ryan hurt anymore. There's no Jack Eichel anymore. Well, these guys are gone. So the opportunity For these players, and all of these situations are going to be extreme. And if they take advantage of these opportunities you're looking at far more than $2.5 million. You're looking at even doubling that. Yeah. If you look around the league rebs right now, guys defenseman that are making 2.5 million. Okay, right on the money you have. Nick Jensen was 30 years old in Washington pulled a half million dollar guys. Marty, You don't even have to read them out there. Basically, you're looking at Uh, a player. Your fifth. Your sixth. Your seventh defenseman. Those guys in the league are making $2.5 million.54 50. I think that's really where it is. But, yeah, I I think you're right. I think you're looking at 1/4 or fifth defenseman on your depth chart. Is he certain? Is he certain? To be alongside Darlene Craig. We had this conversation on Friday. Neither of you are here. But I 100% and, you know, listen. I mean, they they played together last year. They had, uh, Darlene and Yoki Har. You played very well together. They move the pock extremely well together like if you were to have will Bergen here right now? He would be the one player that I'd have to take a step back and say I'm not quite sure. Yoki. How are you is a guaranteed pair. For Darlene. Because yeah, because a player like will bargain. Would be a suitor for Erasmus Darlene. Well, right now there's not a lot of suitor you're looking at Mark Pisnik. Yeah, no. You know, he was playing forward the last number of years, you know, back and forth from forward to defense and you're looking at, you know, calling Miller Colin Miller right now is going to be in your top four. Most likely will, I would think would probably play with Will butcher. Um And you're gonna Henry. Okay? How are you? They're going to be relying a lot on Henry. Okay? Are you and Darlene I I agree. I think it's darling. You okay? Are you I don't think there's anybody else that fits that mold right now. I want to throw one out there. All right, darling, I want to go out of the box here for a minute, because why is it? Why? Why? Why does it have to be that way, Craig? Can Robert hag? Play on the left side with Darlene on the right side of the top pair. How in good if you as a top pairing defenseman, which he is clearly not Okay, I I and I don't think we got to put this and I know restaurants telling people were sand when he was drafted. He's a left shot that plays the right side. Yeah, I think as a youth when you played 16 and 17 you play wherever you are The best player on your team's. You're being moved to the right side by for necessity, absolutely on the big ice in Europe. Probably even better. But here in North America, we saw Rasmus Dahlin play the right side a little bit, and then he looks way better on the left side. And to me, he should be on the left. You try to get lefty righty as much as you can. It's really important, especially in the offensive zone. When you're getting that pass from low to high. You can spring it to that that your D partner I I think it's important that he plays on the left. Okay, But yes, Jeff cold, knocking the rundown. I'm just looking for a little more muscle to play with him. Someone that's just like you know what? Rasmus. I'm never going to go just like you said Craig to Markov back in the day. Hey, Go. I don't want to go. You go again. That was 15 20 years ago. I was 20 years ago that I guess I'm not. So I guess I'm not so set. Then on the whole having two guys borderline the exact same playing on the top pair together. Well, there is that enough, not the same at all. Do you do for you? Who is extremely offensive That's going to be moving up in the rush, distributing the park and going which one is your defensive? Which one is your defensive guy? As you need, like, how are you? Really would be more of a defensive. More of a I mean, like, like I'm not here to criticize Darlene. But I mean like when you see like Darlene's not really that Great at playing defense and much I don't have, like, for example, PD just as well. We're up against the prey, but I much rather have Robert Hat Butcher. Well budget. Much. I might try to have butcher or hag play with Colin Miller because Colin Miller has some good offensive skills. He has some physicality. I'm at times you seen some struggles offensively, I think recipes darling can recover from the struggles defensively. If you don't have to put a defensive defensive guy with him, the U. K are you and Darlene can figure it out together..

"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..

"Can live with that if if I'm getting by field And who said, Does he sit in the front seat? Uh, by field is the second overall pick in last year's draft. By the way, uh, out of Sudbury by the King's might show up in the bulldog with Paul Hamilton. So that's the big one. That's the headliner is this cycle speculation? There's a lot more to do. How much does what's happening behind the scenes Paul with Eichel effect? This expansion draft list. The Sabres Oh, by Saturday. Oh, certainly, I mean, if there's a trade made, then all of a sudden your your list is going to be a lot different, probably depending on The players quite honestly. I'm not surprised. The Eichel deal hasn't been done. I am surprised The Reinhart deal hasn't been done yet, because it's different. It's a different parameter type of a thing. He's not injured. I think he has good. The best value is probably had as a pro. Um, I I don't quite I'm not understanding why? Maybe that deal hasn't been done yet, unless teams are just low balling and nobody's willing to our You know, to give you what type of value you need, or maybe Adams's overvaluing or whatever, but that's a deal. I, for some reason, think should have been done by now. It doesn't have the ingredients The Eichel deal has with injuries and those types of things that are going on. There are salary cap concerns, and other teams have to understand that. Can we sign him? We'd like to sign him to a long term deal. If we're going to trade for him now, him being a restricted free agent teams can talk to his agent. You know when he becomes the restricted free agents, so it's the stables can't stop teams from talking to his agent because they could be forming an offer sheet If they want to be so at least they can. They can get a parameter of what Kind of contract we're talking about here, but that's that one. I I kind of thought should have been done by now. Well, there's a lot to figure out with that. There's Reinhardt. There's wrist. A line in there is I mean, we don't have Coach watch anymore, but we have most of the rest of this trade watch. And you know you you've mentioned that we talked about Oh, in power a little bit recently and you said, And I just want to check back in with you on this as we're into a new week. That you'd be surprised if he weren't the first pick. Would be. Yeah, I think he's pretty well established himself as the number one guy. If you're going to take somebody else, I would say look into moving down. And find somebody who really wants to take power and moved down into the draft and get some get some more currency by doing that, But I think I I think his value to has risen as this has gone on. This process is going on. You know, the players in the rankings and things like that. So definitely. I think he probably is the number one guy and I still wouldn't give up on my idea. And it's not because I want to trade Rasmus Dahlin. It's just And only if I could trade Rasmus Dahlin for the guy who was number one overall or number two overall a couple years ago or last year or two years ago or whatever, and get a forward to do that and flip it if I'm going to draft power That would be the only way I would do it. But I'm not looking to trade Rasmus Dahlin because I don't think he's going to be what he's supposed to be, or hasn't been what he's supposed to be or anything like that. I would only be looking at it because you have a lot of young defenseman power would be coming in either this year or next. And if I could turn that into a very, very high rated forward. I would do that. And power did finally, I don't know that we heard details of his conversation with the Sabres. It was reported that late last week. He did talk to them. I I know, like a few if you write a few days prior or maybe the weekend before, it might have seemed, um, you know, conspicuous to sound like, whoa, what? The Sabres haven't talked to this guy yet. He's the number one presume. Number one pick, but that's been done. And, um, you know, so you know, whatever eyes needed to be doubted. There. I assume they've been dotted. And after that he talked to TSN, and that's when he said, You know, it would be nice to be close to home. Uh, the team you know, they have a rich history was a quote and it would be an honor to play for them and to be drafted by them, you know, So you know, he went that far after talking to atoms and whoever on Thursday All right, Paul. So Ah, We've already been talking a lot to each other, but I sense that that may continue. Yes. I wouldn't mind like talking next hour about a trade or something, right if it were to come to that that would be, uh, yeah, I'll be all about that. I'd be right on top of that. I enjoy it. I mean, we did get it. We did get a trade of a big name player in the league anyway. Say what you will of his current state of play. Duncan Keith went from Chicago to Abington. So Trades are trades are happening. Paul don't go into myself. What? Yeah. Oh, I I'm I'm not as good at this as I used to be, and I was only pretty sure I knew who the Edmonton GM was. But like I wanted to go. That's the first thing I did when I heard that trade like this is not one of these new people. Makes that it's Ken Holland. Okay, that sort of confirmed where I wanted to have. I thought so. And like it's Ken Holland that surely that wouldn't have been a surprise either. It's definitely not one of the new guys. How many, however many of them there are You know, like the new Sharps who are infiltrating sports. That's not who made this deal for Edmonton. It's got to be one of the old guard. Someone who's valuing Duncan Keith from 12 years ago. It sounds like a Sherali trade. Yeah, sure it could pass as one. Yeah, right. There's you can list GMs who you think would have made this trader could have made the straight Yeah, Absolutely So. Alright, Paul. Thanks a lot. And you know what? I think we're all hoping that we are going to talk again today. Guess that would be awesome. Sure, Bulldog wants to hear about an uncle trade when he's asleep. So unless he falls asleep during the show. That won't be good. I don't use. I don't usually fall asleep during the show, so usually we can rule that out. You know, we talked about it like there was a day last week. Paul, where I got A bunch of notifications overnight on my iPad and so like that's next to my bed, and when I wake up, I hit the button to see what time it is. And there were like 10 text and email notification like little badges that you get like there's no sound. It doesn't wake me up when it happens, but they were all I'm like who Maybe this was a trade and I thought Right, then this would be a great way to find out. Like, Go downstairs, make the coffee and then sit down. And like, okay, what do we got? What do we get? So you know, whatever. I'll take it anytime It happens, But having it arrive overnight, like a gift would be really nice waking up to it. The latest one I ever got was 10 of one in the morning from Mike Gilbert when he was with the Sabres. Believe Gratton was involved to that. And I also got a Briere one also because Briere actually played for the Coyotes, and then was traded to the Sabres, So he was having a game out West and I got one. That laid off all, Paul, Do you remember Larry Playfair being traded to the Kings? I do late at night, right? Like that was. Maybe that was one of those where I woke up in the morning, maybe for school and it was on the on the radio. Yeah, I think maybe the the team back then. But I remember the trade. I would never dare to suggest that you were, uh, maybe the big red wing trade two Scotties like Sobeih and Sean felled..

"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. We've got Ryan Hore vet bet QL coming up today as well and Lots of lots of football again today as usual, Mike show open the bulldog here again..

Jeremy's off for a week and a half has put on deodorant two weeks. Don't know if Paul's put on deodorant but he is joining us this morning. Happy Friday, everybody. It's another day A of fun filled merriment and sports talk year on wdr. Good morning, Mr Hamilton happy Friday. How you doing? I'm well, how are you today? I'm good. These two day workweeks are murder, though I gotta tell you it is. I am exhausted. I can't speak for anybody else. But You're probably exhausted and their vacation. Um, you know? Yeah, well, yeah. Okay a little bit. I was exhausted after one day of work yesterday. So I need the need the Johnny Carson contract. I mean, you went to the city field. It was about 80 degrees warmer when you went there when I was there. Yeah, You were there for the Winter Classic. That's right. I saw your tweet about that It was It was a very lovely evening and I actually have Discussion at seven o'clock. I want to get to about my experience at Citi Field the other day, but that's that. We're getting too far ahead of the game here, Mr Hamilton. Well, I'd like to jump around. I have A major challenge for you. And I hope you're up to this challenge. You ready? Probably not. Well, you have no choice. Uh, it's Friday. By the way, we have a lot to get to this morning. We have some great guests on the show Paul's hanging out for the first three hours. We got some hockey stuff I want to get into because, as Brayton mentioned Paul's article wdr 5 50 dot com gives you an idea of what is about to happen. There's a lot of stuff going to be going on in the world of hockey. And not just for Kevin Adams, who might be trading two or three key players from the roster. The buyout period is open the expansion draft protection lists are going to be due on the 17th. The expansion draft is the 21st. The amateur draft is the 23rd and 24th free agency starts on the 28th. So there are a lot of things going on now the rest of this month for personnel departments front offices around the National Hockey League. And of course, we're all waiting for a potentially big Jack Eichel trade. Paul yesterday break. Then I had this discussion. I'll wrap it up in a very Short, uh, phrase here. Um, I've never felt this low about the Sabres. A lot of people are feeling really down on the Sabres. A lot of people feel they have hit rock bottom. We're getting ready for Yet another build, rebuild whatever you want to refer to it as so my challenge to you. If if give fans a reason, singular or reasons plural. To have some optimism right now as a saber fan. No, I think that's easy. Oh, look at you the way a lot of those youngsters All of a sudden went. Don Granato start showed up. They started to show up, you know, look at the improvement by Casey Middle Stat. Quite honestly. If Casey Mittelstaedt was playing like he had played his whole pro career coming up to one Granado showed up. Would basically be saying, Well, you're probably hoping that, uh, Seattle takes him in the expansion draft. Because there was just nothing at all. That made me think that he was going to be an NHL player and I I think I said to you. I violated my own rule of I think you know, being patient. I didn't. We didn't wait long enough for him and I basically had given up on him and thought, you know he's not going to make it. He's not going to be able to play in the NHL. And you know, all of a sudden he shows up aspirins playing well, You know, there was really no thought of him doing much. Thompson was playing well. Then all of a sudden that Darlene starts to look like the reason this, the Sabres drafted him. First overall and what the hype was all about all of a sudden, Rasmus Dahlin was looking like what Rasmus Dahlin should look like, Um Yoki Har. You came to the party after just having a horrendous season. Up to that point. So even a guy by like, uh, You go pack a lieutenant. You know that. You know, I thought, you know, here's a guy that I think is going to be a very good goaltender, but he's nowhere near ready to play in the NHL. Well out of necessity he had to play. It's pretty well, you know, really showed that He's a little bit more ahead of the curve than anybody thought he was. Um, Is he ready to be a number one goaltender in the NHL yet? Probably not. But I also didn't think he was ready to play at all. And I thought, you know I know they got to do this, but this isn't going to go well and it went very well. So they've got the guy. They've got pieces that have a good foundation for them. And I think that's something that you can be excited about now. It's all about. How are you going to fit around those guys? I mean the team as it is now. No, it's not a very good team. They're not going to win too many games with the way it's constructed now, But what are you going to get in the Eichel trade? What are you going to get in the Reinhart trade? How can you, you know, help these guys that you already have. And you can even include You know, a guy like Jack Quinn, who looked pretty good. You know, He shouldn't have been playing in Rochester. But they had no choice. I mean, Junior hockey wasn't wasn't playing then so it was either Put him in Rochester, where he's probably quite ready to go yet is an 18 year old. Or not having played at all anywhere, so he got some valuable experience. And I think didn't do anything to say, you know, he should not have been a number one pick or anything like that. And You know, I think you know, he showed some promise of being a good one. So you know, I I like the foundation. That's there for them. Now we're going to find out what kind of general manager Kevyn Adams is. And You know what he can do without interference from the coach on what kind of players to bring in and Because let's face it. That's what happened last year. I mean, Kruger Wanted it certain players, and then they went out and got him. Well, That's not the way things are going to work now. And so I don't know. What do you say Adams? Get a Mulligan for last year or Whatever it's going to be his show now not Kruger's show, and then he goes and gets players. Couple interesting points there, Mr Hamilton and what you stated actually. What we had this discussion little bit yesterday to brain and I what you just stated. For reasons for optimism and hope and all that stuff is exactly where I was. When the season came to an end in that little window before between the end of the season and before Jack Eichel, zoom call, Uh, there I was exactly where you what you just described in terms of Okay. You know, I do. It's funny. You mentioned middle stat and and I'm I was where you were quite honestly, Paul with middle stead. I had pretty much if I had. If I had actually drawn up in organizational depth chart, I would have put a line through his name as if he was no longer here. Like, okay. Draft picks, not working out. It's just what are you going to do? He's just not going to develop into anything. And let's just let's just move along like he doesn't even exist. And you know he was. Yes. He was one of the reasons for optimism. But it's interesting amidst all that, and I think you're right. You know, I think for You know, the season obviously was toast. Kruger gets fired. And now you're just, you know, Iculs, not even playing..

"W gr, Marty, thanks again for taking the time out of your busy weekend. Happy belated Canada Day to you. Good, sir. Well, happy, belated Canada Day to you as well. Happy early Fourth of July, And I think you got Elliot Greenman coming on later. I do. I would suggest he's the mogul is the insider. I just kind of tag along with these people. I will. I mean, you you are the O G hockey media mogul. Marty, we We coined that phrase for you. I mean, Jeez, What was it three years ago. Now, with that, that super lucrative open It was a great open, and I wish we still had it because I would play it every time you joined the show, But it is what it is. Maybe I'll ask upper management if we can bring back that open at some point for you. That would be great. But every time Howard Simon give somebody a nickname and has to stick right, So he was the one that came up with it. I believe it, uh, that is going to stick for a long time. Yeah, I mean, he also has the nickname hose to him. So I mean that that's that's a great nickname as well. He didn't come up with himself. I think it was When they went to Columbus on like a hockey trip or something. Jeremy and a bunch of the other people on the bus came up with it, and it just stuck ever since. We're not nicknames work right that That is how nickname work, and the best ones are the ones that are unexpected, like they just happen. I still am with PD. We talk about it on the instigators. A lot nicknames now in the sports world, But mostly hockey are so boring. I can't like I want to see these fun. Nickname that would come back like the used to have them. You know, 30 40 years ago, right? Marty Baron, joining me here on the West. Her hotline is we're talking some hockey today as the Sabres made the official higher of Don Granado on Tuesday officially introduced him to the Buffalo media on Thursday made the news official And now the offseason, Marty, It's going to get a really interesting, but before we dive into that, just want to get your overall thoughts on the higher of Don Granado. And if you feel this was the right move for the Sabres going forward. Absolutely. I thought there was only two options moving forward. One was done Granado and and when he was moved to the interim coach of the Sabres after the firing of Ralph Krueger. I thought this is only to finish the season reset the off season and let's see what the Sabres and Kevin Adams will do for the upcoming year. Then I watched the sabers first of all in practice. But also in games and and there was so much to like with how don Granado with pushed the guys in practice, the pace was better didn't practice whole lot. But you could see a big difference. And, most importantly, the system that, uh, that he played with the It looked like an NHL team. The positioning was good. And then you know, you see the The turnaround in the year that Rasmus Dahlin had that Casey medals that H. Thompson the young players, So I think this bodes well for the Buffalo Sabres. So the option one was Don Granado option two was for me. Go after somebody like Gerard Gallant, but I think George Cullen that pretty much as pick of the litter and the Rangers came in. And after a really nice world championship, where he got gold medal for team Canada, Georgia lot got to go to the New York Rangers. So I was happy for him. That's a good spot for Gerard Gillard. But I'm happy for the Sabres because I think Don Granado is the right back. Who do you think this higher benefits the most? I talked with your your partner on the Sabres TV broadcast grind up yesterday, and I'll ask you the same question. If there's anybody on this roster that it has benefited the most that don Granados sticking around. Who is it? And I know that we saw Bunch of these younger players really turn around their games after the fighting of Kruger and Don Granado taking over and allow them be themselves on the ice. But who do you feel that this move benefits the most going forward now into the longer term picture? I think it's a Rasmus Dahlin, You look at the numbers first half of the season, he was minus 30 or what? Not in and not even 30 games. The numbers were atrocious and then in the second half Although I believe the team talent wise was not as good because you didn't have Eichel. You didn't have Taylor Hall. You didn't have Eric Staal. You didn't have Lena Sol Mark. You didn't have Jake McCabe. You didn't have a lot of players. But the team was better and restaurant. 1000 was way better in his numbers showed that way. A simple things like I do believe Phil Housley. Ralf Berger kind of played the same defensive system where it was more men on, man. Guys were chasing all over the place, and I don't think that really worked well, for a guy like restless Darlene. He was used to playing more of his own coverage. You've got your quarters. You're not chasing anybody. And that helps transitioning for Darlene because he knows where he's got to be nosy can support from the weak side. And then all of a sudden you sat down lean, you know, jump in the rush. You saw him carried apart through the neutral zone. And he didn't have to spend 40 45 seconds in his own defensive zone and then tired and can't go up the ice. I think it really benefited Rasmus Dahlin and the way that he that he likes to play in playing through strength. Marty Baron, joining us here on the West ER hotline. The Sabres this week introducing Don Granado as the head coach of the Buffalo Sabres, the 20th head coach in franchise history. So now, with the head coaching higher out of the way, Marty, what do you believe is next going forward for the Sabres? Is it mainly focusing on the draft in the expansion draft? Is it? I mean, I'm sure it's a little bit of everything with also the Jack Eichel move going on. But how do you think Kevin Adams plays this out here? Going forward? Could we see a Jack Eichel trade happened before the expansion draft. What do you think happens? Well, I've been on the records, and I don't think Jack Eichel's getting traded this summer, So I mean, that's to me. Uh, there's too many obstacles in the way one is cap hit. Moving forward. There's not a lot of teams that can afford a $10 million cap it for five years because the flat the flat cap, the cap is not going up. The revenues have not been where they wanted to, especially with the pandemic, and it's going to take years to recover. To the return has to be unbelievable for Kevin Adams to make the trade. So you know, teams have to be willing to take a you know a flyer and and and get rid of top end prospects and really good players, So I don't know that that's going to happen in three is the health of Jack Eichel..

"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.

"A huge fan of, you know, getting married to a bad contract for an extended period of time. But this is just one more area. Where Kevin Adams is going to have the flexibility. To do what's best as far as making the best deal possible. So yeah, it's really crazy, though. I mean, just just staring at the potential of the team Having that much cap space. It really is mind boggling. Yeah, and you have to like the fact that would don Granado said yesterday, too. It's just He's pretty much going to prepare. Just as you know, you know he's preparing for anything at this point, because this offseason is an off season of so much uncertainty. Given this team with the uncertainty of Jack Eichel with with many of the pieces here who knows how many people that are currently listen to cap friendly are going to be back. And goaltending did that to your sitting on zero of them right now. You know, um and that's all due respect to upl, but no one really believes that. You know, he would be in a position to To be Even number two. I don't believe this year and not that he couldn't do it. I think it's just better served for him to get a full HL season. It I I agree as well that it probably would just be best for him to be in the in the H l as much as he can next year. Brian Duffy from Stabbers TV. Joining us right now on the West, her hotline talking about the Sabres and the hiring of Don Granado, Brian from last year's performances in and the impact of Granado taking over as the interim head coach, now the full time head coach. Who do you think that it impacted the most in terms of the way they were able to either turn around their season or really kind of just able to spread their wings and fly given the opportunities that they were given under Granados tutelage. Well, I think there's so many. There's so many players that that did step up their game when they were given that opportunity. But is there anyone in your mind that kind of sticks out above everyone else that this benefits the most. I am reluctant to go all in on one guy, because again the sample size is really small here. So, um, But when you're dealing with Improvement from former first round picks. You have to be happy that he made a connection with all of them. Obviously and here we are. About two likely witnessed them picked first overall, again borrowing a deal. The No brainer answer has to be Rasmus Dahlin, because At the point in time when they drafted Darlene. This was again supposed to be a franchise changer. Right? And the only way the back still happens is if they get the best out of Rasmus, Darlene and and he becomes In the conversation. With all the other elite young defenseman in the NHL, and there's no question over his first three years. We have seen the ability is there So Keep getting the best out of him keep surrounding him with better players. And, as Don said on his call to you can't chase just one. Area here, which he was talking more from a team statistic standpoint, like you can't just expect that the team is going to be better if you fix the penalty killed or you can't just expect they're going to be better because they create more high danger chances. They only get better if all of it gets better. So I'm going to start with Darlene. But If the continuation the continual improvement of middle stat And Thompson completely falls off the map. Then that's not going to help Rasmus Dahlin either, right? So they all have to step forward together here and And that's what coaching is. It's between you and your staff. Taking every day. An understanding on which day which player needs what type of coaching And it's another reason why I think It feels like the right decision to have Don Granado there because he's got a bit of a head start on this now. He's also starting at the back of the pack, so nothing is easy for from. You know where he's attempting to take this over, but The The excitement level the desire to get On top of this now and not wait any further even though training camp is still months away. Granada was all in right now and and and this is why he wanted, you know, like anybody would when you're enough, you know, chasing a job you want to find out sooner rather than later, Right? So now that he's in place like the work is is well underway and I I'm really, you know, obviously excited and curious to see how he ultimately affects individual players. Last thing I'll ask you here, Brian before we let you go. How do you think that things are going to play out here leading up to the expansion draft in the NHL draft? Not only with the expansion draft itself and who the Sabres elect to protector leave, exposed or Uh, you know who you know who they try to get Seattle to take, but also Jack Eichel. What? How do you think everything plays out with that situation? Well, that's a that could be a long answer. Um, which I'm kind of famous for honestly like it. If there's so many things this is like that, you know, never ending to do list. Um, but the thing is from it's good that Kevin Adams has the The timeline. No. I mean we are into the month where literally everything is going to happen. Um I think there are some and they have been much speculated, Um, there are some really intriguing trade possibilities. Obviously. Um, most notably, you know, I think I think people have looked at L..

"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.

"And lie and that type of thing. So, Yeah, he's been impressive. He Wants to entertain fans He doesn't want to. He doesn't want to see boring hockey. And the thing is to buy a sometimes boring hockey isn't always winning hockey. Unless year the New York Islanders and you have a two goal lead. And I mean the New York Islanders. You know, that's when they shut it down is when they have a lead like that, but They don't always play like that. If it's a tie game, it's or there are there behind. You know they, you know they have guys that can play in in score and that type of thing. It's just, you know the way that Lou Lamoriello wants the game to be played, Uh, you know, once they have a lead, and that's the way Aloul Emerald team has always spent. Call the staff now. Okay, so he's got the job. I guess the two part question would be. Do you think he keeps both Matt Alice and Dan Girardi? Maybe the first part of the question should be. What did you think of what Alison Girardi brought to the staff. Are they worth keeping? I did. I thought they did a great job. And, um, from what I've been told any coach that came in here was told that Matt Alice would be on the staff. Um, in hockey that Happens. I don't know what I want to say. A lot happens more times than it doesn't where the GM has a guy on the staff that he wants, and then you know the the coaches. The rest of the staff, and I think Adams told coaches that you know Matt Ellis would be part of the staff. Don't think Granada would have any problem with that. Um, I I would be surprised if he made any any coaching moves. I thought Girardi was great, especially since he had never coached and He comes in and really helps Yoki who are you really helps Colleen Samuelson comes in and has a very seamless transition from the American Hockey League. Into the NHL. Bryson had his moments good and bad. Um, but, you know, I really liked the job Girardi did with those guys. So, um I would be surprised if he many, many moves on the coaching staff unless one of those two guys doesn't want to be in Buffalo for any reason, but Matt Ellis has always impressed me. I knew when he was a player that he was going to be a very good coach. He is very knowledgeable about the game. He has He One of the best worth work ethics You're ever going to see. And players enjoy working with them, and they they know that they're going to be worked hard, but they know they're going to learn something from him. So you mentioned Alice like they were saying, Hey, Alice is going to be on the staff. Specifically Girardi. Because when we talk about Granado, Paul, some of some of what we talk about is Hey, Rasmus. Dahlin, go to have the green light. Don't worry. Just go and yolk and yolk heart you to like their games bounced back, but also in a limited time because of injuries. How Borgen. Look, they were playing Bryson Samuelsson comes up. Maybe Ryan Johnson will be here at some point. Maybe they're drafting Owen power. How much do you you think Girardi played a role in terms of working with developing or making better? The young defenseman? Lot and I, it matters to players that You know he didn't retire 25 years ago. I mean, he was still playing in the league in 2019. So they know what he knows what he's talking about. He was just on the ice just like them. Some of them have played against him. So you know that matters when when they when they hear from him and what he has to say, I think your ears perk up with a player like that a little bit more. Then they they might if you got a guy who, Well, yeah, he played in the league. But last time he played was, uh, you know, before 2000 type of a thing, so I think it matters. I think it also helps him in this situation to the league is different than it was 20 years ago. So Girardi knows that again because he played in it. He knows the speed of the game. He knows how the game is played. Now, um and and I think that helps with his credibility out there, too. And You know it. It seems like you know, from what I heard of what at what Darlene talked about, plus From what I heard. He was just kind of soaking up the knowledge he wanted to hear from Girardi. He would ask questions. He wanted to know what he thought about things and you saw the results on the ice. Paul. One other thing in the discussion of where the Sabres go from here, we asked about staff roster. You know, we're spending the off season talking about waiting for Michael Trade. We've talked to you about Sam Reinhart and I, You know, it looks like he might be on the way out. Rasmus risk the line in Do you think the Granada higher has any impact on what? Ultimately, Adams does with the roster? Maybe those three guys specifically. No, no, I think he's going to try to get the best trade. He can You know, for, uh, for Michael and I've said all along If you don't get proper value, then you don't make the trade. I mean, you hang up the phone. You don't just take the best. Offer that comes and all right. Well, this isn't good value, but this is the best offer we got. So let's go type of a thing, so and then that has nothing to do with the coach. Um, again. I think he can integrate his coaching system into anybody. That's around. Uh, just just the philosophies that he has. So, um it's interesting. I mean, we We all do it. I've done it, You know? All right. What are they going to do with the expansion draft? Who they're going to protect? Well. That's still 17 days away. And the roster could look a lot different. You know when, when that rolls? It depends who's been traded. If anybody so you know, trying to figure out who's going to be protected, who's not as kind of a fool's game right now, because What? What? What? What You're trying to protect right now might be totally different in a couple of weeks. Yeah, You know it. It's in the discussion of the young guys tying in these two discussions, right? You know, the EFI calls traded of Reinhart's traded It opens up holes at center. Cousins will be there. We know that How confident would you be based on Granado and the improvements you saw in middle stat that he will be? I don't know. Is he the number two center right now? Right now. He is, um would be rather that I would rather that not be the case once October rolls around. That you know you've made, you know. All right, you've made your trades. And moving forward. I think You know again, the team itself. You know the team itself right now, even with Granado coaching it Well, if you don't if it's this team And you don't improve it..

"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.

"Called You really sweatshirts and Hoodies over sweatshirts because it wild, says 65. It's going to be chilly. Yeah, that golf course by the way. Looked unbelievable. Like the pictures right up there when you were tweeting pictures of sawgrass, plaster, whatever that was. Yeah, yeah, Pebble Beach this time and it was every bit it lived up to the hype absolutely was incredible. All right. Well, let's get to the Sabres a little bit here before we run out of time in this segment, because I think we seem to be at least gathering from some of your replies on Twitter this afternoon after Friedman's comments, especially the one saying Uh, from the GR account at the end of the day. I don't think the Sabres want to bring back Jack Eichel. They want to move on. My first instinct was who is benefiting from that information being out there and I Right like, isn't it? I'm not saying that I know it's from the agent. It just makes sense that it would be coming from the cycle camp because they don't want it to be seen as they're pushing their way out there demanding a trade there being difficult because they don't want that reputation sticking to Eichel going forward. Yeah, I think that in it's it's really ugly, and it's not surprising that it's ugly. I think it probably gets uglier. The idea that the reputation will stick to article I just don't think it will. I think the the party here that's got a bigger lift to shed its reputation is going to be the Buffalo Sabres because he's going to go somewhere. And he'll play for who? The Rangers. I saw a report today The Kings are out. Yeah. John John haven yesterday said that he had heard that Michael was not on their shopping list, I think was the exact way it was said. And then, Friedman said today. You know something along the lines of If John knows John is saying that he probably it is. Yeah, Fair enough. So okay, The Kings are out. But if it's the Rangers if it's the Bruins if it's the Minnesota wild or the Panthers or hurricanes, like all of these teams have had more success than the Sabres of late the Rangers. Not much, but you know, there are there are original six blue blood that they've got a reputation. Where Michael goes, is going to be in immediately. They'll get a lot of attention, and the story will be what he's going to do for them, and the Sabres will be here, you know, sweeping up. The dust and turning out the lights and starting over again. So you know, the Sabres reputation has been damaged quite a bit by there. You want to see their treatment You want to say by their, um, their moves I mean, Also on Twitter. Today was the all list of players who wanted out right now. O Reilly, Eichel, Evan Rodriguez, Zach Bogosian. These aren't even really necessarily good players or contributors risk the lining. Each years like I mean, Yeah. If you guys want to send me somewhere, so you get to a point where, huh? It's like everybody seems to want to leave. At some point. I hope the Sabres have what it takes to look inside and say That's our fault. You know we've done this. We've made this happen. It's not bad luck that they've picked a bunch of players that don't want to play for the Sabres. So Get. I get nervous about that, When when we go. We'll talk about this going forward. If they keep doing things the way they've been doing them, then Dylan cousins will be next. And Casey. Middle Stat will be next in Owen Power and whoever So he needs to be massive Darlene, right. There need to be massive change in the way that they operate the way that they succeed because it seems like everybody that comes out of there has been Miserable for quite some time, Of course, losing because that's the common denominator, right? And the the only thing I'm thinking that the only thing one of the things I'm thinking of while you're talking there is about Just kind of playing right to the whims of the player. You know, Like the last few years. It's kind of been like your term of the fear bunker of like, When is Jack Eichel going to ask for a trade? When is he going to want out and kind of just living with that pressure that, okay, I've got to win now, because I've got to convince this guy that I'm good enough that that he shouldn't asked to be traded that he shouldn't want out. And the reality is, if you're probably going to trade Jack Eichel, and they're probably going to be bad again next season, and we're going to move on to the next guy with that. That's not a reality I want to live in, but that's why to me. The change needs to come somewhere in the organization and the way that this team operates in evaluates players scouting like it's got to start up top because It's Michael now, but if you go lose, and you're terrible for the next 23 years, we'll do. The first thing I think of is what we're gonna be right back here talking about this with Rasmus Dahlin in a couple years when he needs an extension, Sure, right? And you know, you could say that you're catering to the whims of a player. But This is true of any team. I mean, right now. Edmonton's worried about MC David and the story has already been, when is he going to want to leave and it happens all around the sports world. Generally, it happens when a team is bad in the player is good. Aaron Rodgers of the exception, right player. Good team. Good. He's a bit of the exception. That's like a personal relationship thing, but guys that want to move they they look at their bosses, I guess And they say LeBron in Cleveland, I'm doing everything granted, He went to the finals. I mean he was missing the place. But LeBron left Cleveland because he looked around and said You guys don't work. You don't do enough. I'm going to go somewhere where they're going to do what it takes to win, So he left and then he went back and it's just to me. You. We judge these players on wanting to win, and then sometimes when they show up and say, this is ridiculous. I want to win their turned into a bad guy. Legacies are are based on On whether or not you win games and what you do to win games, and it's not like Jack, who has been here for two years. It's been six How many guys of his caliber have had to wait six years for success or to see any positive signs of success. In Michael's case, he has liked some of the coaches they fired. The reputation is he's a coach killer. He has a good relationship with Kruger and said he wanted to continue that..

"Going to start with Um, the friend here, LaFraniere. It's going to start with Laughren year and their home and hunter and say No, We don't want to do that. You're going to do it because it's Jack Eichel, who's 24 years old. Okay? So LaFraniere is going to be one of your guys. Well, you also need another piece to make this work. What about key? Andre Miller? Yep. Six, FT five left handed defenseman boom. You tell me you're not going to make a trade for LaFraniere and key Andre Miller for Jack Eichel. Do it right now. In a heart beat. The Rangers are stacked with your good young bees. Okay, so there's that up now, Now you take Owen power Do we need all in power anymore? We have to kill three million picks 5 to 20. You have Samuelsson, Who's 65 to 25 or 2 30? You have Rasmus Darlene's like He's like a slinky offensive genius that he is. We are going to see some major strides. And who isn't isn't power supposed to be similar to Darlene, but just bigger. No, He's not Darlene. He's No, He's not. He's not enough. The ice offensively Mining didn't carry carry that He was carrying the park all over the place You're world champion like carrying the pocket college up. The ice is dangling to everybody Don't know what Darlene does. He does Speedy gets the puck up the ice, but he's not. He's not always that offensive. Many kids get in the fucking He's moving it. You know, it's when we're talking offense. It's him getting up in the place and creating, you know, quarterback. All that kind of things. Do you need another left handed defenseman? If you have Tia Samuelsson, Rasmus Darlene and just say, hypothetically key Andre Miller. The answer is no. So that trade with l A and Quentin by field looks pretty damn good. That's all I'm saying. Yeah, well, you know what many others If you're going to target that kid, there's there's options with Don't do I know that, Rob what if l A said you We don't want We don't want power. We don't want power. We're in more of a rush because drew doubt he's eager. So we'll take Darlene because you're going to get power anyway. All in for by field. So what you're saying? Yeah. I wouldn't. I wouldn't do that. Because I think I think, um, when you look at What we are going to get moving forward from a Rasmus Darlene, who has already been through The tougher, more developmental years of learning the league. Okay, ask Miss Darlene. I believe moving forward is going to be a guy that's going to play 25 minutes a night. He's going to run your power play. I think he'll have the ability to play against the top two lines. I think he's going to really blossom as a young player, his skill set as a as a defenseman. Skill set. There's probably one or two players in the entire league. One being Kehlmann car. It's probably one or two players in the league that is more skilled than Rasmus stalling. And I think that Rasmus Dahlin right now is a guy that we're going to want inner line up for the next 10 years. Plus, Yeah, and I would not ever think about moving him right now. The reason for that is He is. Three years into his development of learning the league learning the players learning what he's what he his strengths and weaknesses are and now you're going to get that confident, young man moving forward, and I think there's still a huge upside with Rasmus Dahlin, so I'm not moving them. No, I'm not moving to me either, because I think you just once he gets a little more help back there. And a lot more help up front and he's going to be able to play the game. You can play. Yep. Instigators w gr 5 50 msg Steve Shields, We'll be able to come on and say review are not gonna wanna trade the number one pick for anything because he's that good, so hopefully You know, he says something like that. But Steve Shields coming on at 11 o'clock, and we look forward to chatting with him. Ribs knows them. We got a lot of history to talk with him because razor played with him. I don't know him at all. But I just I just dug him up. You missed out. Yeah, That's what I heard. I'm going to tell you something. I'm going to tell you something right now. I have heard Only amazing things about this guy. You know, on the end of the Yeah, on and off the ice. I heard he's heard. He's a tremendous human being. Um, what happened razor? When? First of all, Why weren't you on the ice at the start of the video? Like the start of the show? We started with a video where you guys are playing Vancouver. In Buffalo. Lindy takes hashtag out of out of the net and put Steve Shields in because Steve Shields is known as a tough guy. He's a tough boy He's fought before. So what happened? Bashir goes after Peca. What happened leading up to that was I even in the in the game, I well, I would assume you would have been on the ice at the end. Vancouver Random That's what I heard. Vancouver Random And you may be my maybe you are already Maybe you were already booted out of the game. Because Bashir was on the ice. He got tossed. Don't live in the past video. I decided that day to day now. I can't remember that stuff. Stop it! Stop! You don't live in the past. Look at the sticks behind you all That is the past. Trophies that is that is called retirement..

"To Elite projects.com and they had him as a thirty-six-year-old and so on so I didn't really trust that. I might have been spelling the name wrong and so on but whatever he was in as a backup, but it was just a tough game is Bruins give up three power-play goals on this night. And and like Anthony Greco was just running around just causing Havoc Ty ronning. He scored his seventh and eighth and Tommy cross was the only Providence Brewing to get on the board. He got his third at the 10:40 Mark of the third. Assisted by yaakov. Lalko and Cooper's XO tough one the next the next games. Well, actually I shouldn't talk about the next games cuz I don't have the schedule a lot. But right now after 18 games played the Providence Bruins wage. Comfortably in the in the Atlantic division with a 13-4 and one and O record with 27 points. They unfortunately broke a two-game winning streak and Thursday 7 to 1 one in the last ten. They are ten points ahead of heart for who's in second place with 17 points and Bridgeport is just they got three win a seven point. So there's a 20-point gap right there. So we still don't know what's going to happen with the Calder Cup playoffs. I've been listening to around the a podcast with David foot and Patrick Williams very closely to get their inside stuff about if the League's going to entertain playoffs from here and it's not going to happen because they can't get fans in the stands. And if you can't do it now nobody's making money nowhere. So why have it so long? It's it's a bit unfortunate on that. And yeah, no, it's it's sucks to these kids right now man. Like I really feel for them. Like you hear some of the stories about how long These teams that even NHL prospects didn't play for almost over a year. Like it's that's crazy to think for like they were talking about Rasmus dahlin and his home like how he didn't he didn't end up playing for like a year and how much that hurt him at the beginning of the season and it really heard the whole Buffalo line up on a whole cuz he was supposed to be there guy, right? Yeah. Yeah absolutely dead. So I don't have the schedule up but that is my mind. Oh, no, I do have something else one more thing Mark divver tweeted out the other day that 2015. 7th round draft pick Jack Becker. It sucks that he had to leave school. Yeah, I got a ice pack had to leave school because of the University of Michigan Wolverines. They withdrew from the National Tournament. So that was his senior year and ultimately aimed his his his NCAA career, which I thought I wrote an article about it and the potential of him signing a pro contract 1 year entry level deal with the Boston Bruins much like Whitney Wolfe did coming out of the University of minnesota-duluth. So but differ come over the other the other day and tweeted out that Becker has decided to stay in school, but not with Michigan he is going to the State of Arizona Sun Devils to play extra year a fifth year of college hockey and I and I know you can do the job..
