"Interesting and informative book to help past those restless and uncomfortable hours in coach class where minutes seemed like ours. Shortly after takeoff, I opened your treatise with great anticipation, looking forward to finally understanding the dark secrets of automotive technology. I find it hard to express the depth of my appreciation for this book. Since after about page 6, the next thing I recall was the students asking me to put my seat back to the full upright position as we were landing in California. I slept like a baby from the Tennessee border to the landing approach of San Francisco. You all book accomplished what sleepies benadryl and 6 were acting could not do for me in the past. I plan to purchase extra copies for my wife and friends in preparation for our flight to Australia next year. What a guy. Who is this Hamilton of hillsborough North Carolina a bill?

Julie Kelly Explains the Cover up Around Ray Epps and the FBI

"The FBI had him on some kind of watch list looking for him or something A very strange case I mean he's on video We can all see it Digitally recorded Saying we're going to go to the capitol People are saying fed fed fed No you know we're not going to do that Multiple times he seems to be whispering in people's ears and then these people do things They're out there They're pushing barricades after that Some of these guys what's your best take on what's going on there with epson the FBI Well it's definitely a sketchy story and most importantly because the people who are trying to protect ray apps can't keep their own story straight So let's remember that it was based on the reporting of Darren Beatty at revolve or debt used who found ray apps all this video and then noted that he was still on the FBI most wanted list will suddenly ramps disappears from the FBI most wanted list even though he clearly is inciting and provoking people into criminal behavior that day including Ryan stem cell who's the first man that whispers in his ears and Ryan Sam toler is really the first person to breach the exterior perimeter police line And so then we were all the Merrick Garland wouldn't answer questions about who ray apps was FBI officials won't answer questions So this kept getting attention All of a sudden the January 6th committee comes out and a kinzinger saying oh he's not a federal agent We talked to him at the committee This is another conspiracy theory et cetera Well then what happens this week The January 6th committee announces ray F was coming in to sit down for a formal interview under oath and his attorney says he is not an FBI agent or informant Well that doesn't mean he wasn't over a year ago So still a lot of unanswered questions but the cover up in sudden white knighting of ray eps by all the wrong people should certainly raise a lot more suspicions about his role in ties to the government

"And perk wherever you get your podcast. Final couple of segments of the program on a Monday night in squirrel is up next in Mississippi, hello, squirrel. Man, that was an electrifying column from just now. Yes, it was. And I am so jealous of you black hat club as. And now she's a member too. Any chance we're down the road, you might put a word in with me with the president, legend and kind of. You know, I don't want to say no, I won't do it. I think I'll just have to wait for the right moment though. I would really wouldn't want to be in any club that would have me as a membrane of the place. What do you say? Does she say that Jim and legend have more intelligence in their little finger than the rest of the callers combined? Yes, she did say that. I can't confirm that. Did either one of those guys graduate from? I am unaware of their educational standpoint. The legend was a little occupied. Legend was a little occupied around that time, I believe. I'm guessing legend. I mean, now hold on a second squirrel. That doesn't mean he could not have gotten a degree while he was a resident. Just as good, I'm sure I'm saying graduated from a high school. Well, I don't know that. I don't know. I've never seen Jim's retake auricular, have you? Well, you can't find Jim in many team pictures at Tuscaloosa is good. But he's in the class pitcher twice as a junior from what I understand. But I really need to hear about it. I have never seen that. Somebody did some type of yearbook search couple years ago. You know that, man, not even big metal. By the way, you can find almost anything. I mean, I have people sending me, was this really your yearbook picture? And I'm like, I'm afraid it was, yes. But my name is well known. It's public record. The day before my yearbook, the day before my yearbook put your true story, I was visiting my girlfriend and they built a little bicycle ramp in the street. And I was a big bad senior. I was going to show them how high I could jump. And I literally, the bike beat the record, but my head. My head skidded down the street at TNC. But getting back to this way, I was really disappointed to hear that she was still married because her and Jim, they really have so much. She lost her did she say she was married? She's married. She's a matter of fact. I thought she lost her husband or maybe it was her confused with somebody else. She got her confused with somebody else. But no, mister Faye is still around. I didn't know. I was unaware of that, because we were under the impression, you know what we were doing. Well, you know, that's a shock to the system. Did you know that mister Faye was still around? I thought she was a widow with a woman as we used to say. No, she can. I can clarify that. And she'll be able to after Jim hooks her up. And how entertaining is going to be everyday hear her call in a towel how great Jim is? They used to call that in the parlance of presidential politics and audience of one. So much, but it's been a great show. Jim aware that she was married to anyway. I don't think he is, I think. I don't think he is. I don't really think Jimmy. I'm not having an 83. Well, you know, we're always going there. Doesn't matter. I was just curious. I was asking the wrong guy the question. Are you saying you lose something? No, I'm just saying that at 83, can't you date around at all? It seemed like you could kind of open things up, but yeah, why not? I mean, you're 83. You can do whatever you want. That's right. Thanks for taking my call. Thank you very much. I don't know. I'll have to find the answer to that question. Bo is calling next in Georgia abo. Hey, Paul, great show. Watch you every day. Thank you. And when you've got more time, I will give you SEC history with the general newland ray graves, see you slow on Steve's barrier, which are all shooting match. I would like to put don't have time now. What I called you about was the black coach. Black guy that called and was complaining about the lack of black coaches. In the SEC, you had a chance to nail him to the wall. You could have said who, what two black cultures would you replace Bruce pearl and John capillary with? Well, first of all, there are a couple of black coaches in basketball. And there aren't any football right now. I think he was more maybe he wasn't, but I think he was more referencing the college football platform. He probably was, but I sort of took it as basketball and who would be the two that would replace capital and Bruce pearl. I don't think he's got an answer for that. But I'll tell you, I'm already the tough one. I'm all right, you're a letter. And tell you all about my experiences with Brian and Jane Stalin's and the general neyland column May on the phone and it does it already sending me airplane tickets. I would like to say anything that I could learn about general neyland. I'm fascinated by that subject. I've read a couple of biographies and you let me hear from let me hear from you on that. Mike is calling next in Alabama. Hey Mike. Yeah, I wanted to comment on the gentleman the cold earlier about the lack of black coaches and I understand what he's saying and I think he's right that there is a lack of black coaches, but I think the wrong question is being asked, if there are qualified black votes out there, he admitted himself that these programs generate millions of dollars worth of revenue. So if there's somebody out there that is qualified then, of course, the universities would hire them because they want to be successful and make those millions of dollars. I think the issue is more why aren't the black coaches being developed and I think that's the reason why we're not seeing more black coaches because there aren't enough being developed. A week ago today, we asked a similar question to Sylvester krum and he was as concerned about black coaches getting opportunities as coordinators. Because that's really the only way you can move into a head coaching position as he was about to head coach position per se. Right. You recall, LSU wanted the case for Michigan state, but absolutely. So I don't think it's anything to fire us. I think it's just something that they need to develop them more on the assistant level so that they're better qualified. What's on the SEC, which is really where I'm probably most qualified to talk, there have been you had Sylvester croom. You had obviously Derek mason at Vanderbilt, Joker Phillips. And all had pockets of success, but that's not really the issue. The issue is judging every coaching search on its merit, not simply doing something to do it. Thank you for the call. I really appreciate it. It's a good subject. It will continue with it in the coming days. And we are officially out of time for this program. We appreciate all of you for being a part of it. Some really interesting guests today will see you right here tomorrow. Thank you for listening to the Paul finebaum show podcast, the Paul Fein bob show airs weekdays on the SEC network, beginning at three eastern..

Supreme Court Allows Vaccine Mandate for Health Care Workers

"Here's a huge day yesterday, a big victory for common sense the Supreme Court ruled 6 to three that millions of Americans aren't going to have to risk the hell of being punished for being unvaccinated in the workplace, but it's a glass half empty kind of a victory. Because frankly, if you believe in the principle of government overreach, if you believe in letting the executive branch turn into king George. What about the healthcare workers? And thanks to justice Kavanaugh, once again, we see a Trump appointee side with the liberal faction of the Supreme Court and I can promise you there's a lot of nurses. There's a lot of x-ray technicians. There's a lot of physicians assistants, there's a lot of doctors. Who are pretty distraught over the Supreme Court upholding the healthcare industries

Journalist Julie Kelly Describes the Recent Hearing of January 6 Defendant Ryan Samsel

"Guys, I'm delighted to welcome back to the podcast my favorite journalist Julie Kelly, the heroine of the January 6th reporting. Julie has, well, Julie writes for American greatness, but she has an important and bestselling new book out. It's just called January 6th and I'm going to read the subtitle how Democrats use the capital protest to launch a war on terror against the political right. Julie, welcome back, delighted to have you as always, you were just at a hearing and tell us all about it. So thank you, dinesh for having me on and we'll talk a little bit about my book. But there was just a hearing this morning on Thursday morning related to the case of Ryan samso, who has been in jail arrested last January 30th. And it's important because this ties into the ray eps controversy that we've been seeing for the past several days. Ryan samso is the man who ray Epps whispered in his ear right before Ryan Samuel becomes the first Trump supporter first capital protester to breach the initial lines at the perimeter of the grounds that day. He has been, as I said, arrested and detained since last January, the government continues to delay his case. He wasn't even formally indicted by grand jury until August. What DoJ is doing now to delay his trial and what I believe is to delay revealing what happened with ray eps because of course it was a critical point right before the breach is delaying his trial. They've added defendants to his case. And the judge judged Tim Kelly again today delayed for the next few weeks until January 27th, another status hearing is DoJ adds defendants ads indictments and then claims they need to add more discovery. This is just part of DoJ's gamesmanship in delaying as much as they can what happened on January 6th and specifically related to any sort of government informants or assets that were used in the capitol

How Democrats Used the Capitol Protest to Launch a War on Terror Against the Political Right

"Okay, with this right now is Julie Kelly, she's done an amazing job her new book, how Democrats use the capital protests to launch a war on terror against the political right, Julie, thank you so much for joining the Charlie Kirk show. Hey, Charlie, thanks so much for having me on. I appreciate it. So we've had on this week Darren Beatty and Ben wein garten and you've done an amazing job covering this over the last couple months. Summarize the thesis because it's very precise what you have here. How Democrats use the capital protest to launch a war on terror. What is the war on terror that's unfolding in front of our eyes? Well, you can see this, especially yesterday when you had vice president Kamala Harris tick off past terror attacks and then add January 6th, 2021 to the end. Now let's set aside how egregious outlandish and how demeaning it is to the people who were murdered at those various days on 9 11 and of course Pearl Harbor. But this gives them justification to turn the tools of terrorism the war on terror, which has been aimed at foreign adversaries foreign threats to domestic threats and those domestic threats or Donald Trump, the Republican Party, the Republican information ecosystem. And, of course, the millions, tens of millions of Trump voters and supporters. So when Christopher ray designated under oath in Congress in March, he designated for our disturbance at the capitol, a domestic terror attack. That enabled the entire national security state, law enforcement FBI, et cetera, a local law enforcement to then treat the defendants, treat the event and anyone tied to the events of that day as a domestic terror threat.

What Have We Learned 1 Year After January 6? Journalist Julie Kelly Tells Us

"What else do we know a year later really happened on Capitol Hill? Well, okay, so we do know that there are various FBI informants, and now we know because of this newsweek, bombshell that was published on Monday that there were hundreds of elite FBI special forces. They called them shadowy commandos that were stationed at Quantico starting on January 2nd and third. And then were on capitol grounds early that morning. So who were these FBI commandos? I mean, I've seen all the video in photos. I don't see anybody that says FBI is here. If they had hundreds of these forces, what were they doing? Why weren't they protecting the capitol? Why weren't they protecting lawmakers who felt that their lives were threatened? And so this looks like another set up by Christopher ray's FBI, just like the Whitmer kidnapping plot, which is falling apart for the government as well. And so but what they've done is taken this four hour disturbance. They've blamed Donald Trump for inciting this insurrection. They have now arrested more than 700 Americans most of them charged with low level misdemeanors, but in the process have destroyed their lives, some of them are being sent to prison for class B misdemeanors, basically parading in the capitol. And so to my point in my book, which I give a detailed timeline of exactly what happened at day, but also how this Justice Department, the entire Biden regime Joe Biden himself is weaponizing that four hour disturbance and targeting the political right millions of Americans and launching a domestic war on terror against Americans

Well, thanks for having me on. Incidentally, my father was in World War II, by the way. Mine too. Mine was as well. Yeah, yeah. Well, I think my advice for some people out there would be today being January 6th. To just not watch TV and to hang out with your family, do a nice activity, go somewhere. And just stay away from the media today because you and I both know it's not going to be very truthful. It's just it's bizarre and it's so obvious. Liz Cheney makes it clear when she says the only reason the government wasn't overthrown on January 6th was because people stood up to Donald Trump. This is all about Trump. They are in, you talk about living rent free in their heads. He is absolutely rent free in their heads because they're convinced. We're convinced they're convinced that he's coming.

We're going to go into the capital tomorrow. And the response from the crowd was no, he's a fed he's a fad, and then thanks to Darren Beatty's journalism, like legitimate journalism, an unbelievably factual article at revolver news. Amazing. There was like no politics in an article at all. It wasn't like I like Trump, I hate Trump. I'm like, here's the facts. Ray apps was like alpha male posturing at the top of the stairs of the first part, basically almost conducting traffic. At the peace gate. Yes. So in part two that he just just came out just the other day. The path that they all took after the speech at the ellipse from The White House, they came down this road, and the path that they would have taken, they had to go through the peace skate. It was just where you would have walked to go to the capitol and write up stood at the peace skate, just telling everyone to go in the capitol, and they had started to Charlie specific. Yeah, and they started to he was there and they had people there taking down the fences while Trump was still in. If I remember correctly, then the Proud Boys came down the street. Almost simultaneous, you're right after, but after. It was one after the other. It was yes. It was perfectly time. Yes. Perfectly timed, and then there was another man, and he was the guy that was up on the scaffolding. This is all in videos. That's what's incredible

What's Surprised Marjorie Taylor-Greene the Most About Congress?

"So even in Congress, not even a year, is that right? Not even a year. It hasn't even been a year. What has surprised you the most? Everything. Be more specific. Okay, so here's the way I see Congress. So, you know, I come from the private sector, never never involved a government. Georgia. In Georgia, yep. Never went to a GOP meeting, because I just didn't even know what they were. It was busy working, raising my family, just living the most incredible life. God, thank you. Okay, so I got mad and decided to run for Congress. Why'd you get mad? Well, because I would knew what Democrats were doing. That was clear to see, but it was Republicans that got me really angry, because they weren't doing their job. And so when you're a business owner, you're used to managing you're used to holding people accountable when we do things like make a profit instead of a loss. And I was looking at the Republican Party and I'm like, you know, they really failed with Paul Ryan as a speaker. They did not pursue the agenda that we all voted for under president Trump in 2016. I'm going to run for Congress because I feel like we need to put, you know, regular people in there. Get there, and here's what I find out. This is what most people don't realize. They're the most incompetent, poorly just horrible work ethic, they're lazy. They don't know how to achieve anything. They truly don't know how to solve problems because their government people. I think that's what most people need to understand. You see, in order to succeed in business, you have to be able to solve problems. You have to be able to please your customer. It's very difficult. So that's actual work, but in the government, everything is assumed that the revenue comes in automatically because of the IRS, and it's a law. You don't have to place your customer because your customer can't fire you. I mean, the American people can't fire the federal government, or yet they haven't tried. They claim they tried on January 6th, but they really didn't. But anyways, what I found is everyone's incompetent. No one can produce anything that actually works. And it's a system that's set up for failure. So I look at the capital and all I see is a glass castle. It's completely

"So congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene were supposed to hate you and I don't actually really like you. So why is that? Why does the media tell us that you're like an existential threat to our democracy or whatever that? Well, apparently that's what they want everyone to believe. I'm really proud of my Wikipedia page. I have to tell you is such a badge of honor. I will never change it. It says the most horrible, disgusting lies about me. And so I'm keeping it there just the way it is so that everyone can really understand what Wikipedia is all about. So I endorsed you early if I remember correctly. You did. And. Thank you. You got, of course, you got elected and you've decided to actually do what you said you were gonna do. And someone asked me a question once. I was in Wisconsin and he says Charlie, do you renounce your denounce your endorsement of marginally Marjorie Taylor Greene? I said, why would I do that?

"And I want you to remember what happened after they tried to tell you that critical race theory wasn't actually being taught when we all know that Kirk ray Siri is actually being taught in our schools What do they do Well then there was a letter that was sent A letter that was sent for the Department of Justice out to everybody in America all these different people telling you that you need to start curating parents like they are domestic terrorists that they show up At school board meetings if they organize Facebook groups or they send blunt messages or call their elected officials or they yell at them or they're angry at them at school board meetings that they should be treated like they are a member of Al-Qaeda Or ISIS And then what happened We saw parents actually getting arrested And we saw the left say parents shouldn't have a right to decide what is taught to your children I'm sure they'll tell you that didn't happen either It did and we have the audio to prove it But it's interesting where we are now Just change the subject Get rid of critical race theory and I'm warning all parents and grandparents right now This is my warning If there's nothing else you remember from tonight from this show I want you to remember this what happened with critical race theory is nothing compared to what Democrats are about to do to parents They are moving forward to take away all of your medical rights of your children

Nick Searcy Stars in New Film 'Capital Punishment' About the Jan. 6 Rally

"Sitting in for doctor G and we are gonna get right into the thick of the invented insurrection with one of my favorite actors and an all around awesome American Nick circe who is the star to the extent it's a star thing of a movie called capital punishment, capital with an O like the building where the insurrection didn't happen. Now, this movie Nick was and you showed us clips that were out visiting in California before, by the way, did you migrate already? Well, where one foot in and one foot out? Oh, Kevin, outpost, established, and we're going to be spending a lot of time there over the next year. But we'll be back and forth. Okay, so that's kind of good. So you can infiltrate in and out of occupied territory. Yeah, and when the whole state collapses, we can just go, okay, I guess we can't go back. Or you just appropriate Barbra Streisand's house in Malibu or something. I've got my eyes on some places I might take over when it comes down to it. But the movie capital punishment is about January 6th. More importantly, it's about what they did to our people after that. Now let's not deny the fact that there were some people who did some really bad and stupid things violently attacking law enforcement officials. There were also a whole lot more exponentially more people who were there doing protected political speech and who ended up getting scarfed up in one of the worst abuses of power. I've seen in my lifetime, and who now are in an American gulag. So tell us a little bit about what you wanted to show about that horrendous situation with this movie. Well, I was there on January 6th and really the reason the movie came about is because when I watched the news after I left there that day, I didn't see anything of what I saw. All I saw was the violence at the capitol that they showed us. They didn't show the huge crowds. They didn't show the people singing The Star-Spangled Banner and singing hymns and saying the Pledge of Allegiance. They didn't show the happiness, the joyful nature of the crowd. And so I started going what's going on? Why are they only showing this? And what we learned in creating the film is like, yeah, they were bad people doing some bad stuff, but they were also police officers doing some bad stuff. They're also people that were very suspicious individuals that didn't look like any Trump supporters. I'd ever seen that were instigating some bad stuff. They were also people there that probably worked for the FBI, a guy named ray eps and more and more of this stuff is coming out. And it came about as an exploration of what really was the story because I just knew from what I had seen that the media was intentionally leaving out a huge portion of it and lying about the other.

But you and i are kindred souls when i think of and the fact that we cannot golf here in ontario. We're not allowed to golf. Let's hope that the restrictions are lifted very very soon but our powell. Ray ferraro I don't know ray. How many times have you played golf. I know you probably played what three times this week that. I'm at eleven round so far. Yeah he's a bad on jerry. He's a bad man. You know we talked about you. Part of yeah. I love the golf. But it's it's my daughter's really golfer. So you know anyone with kids in any sport no. They're struggling so a lot of my frustration is for everybody. That just seems kind of ludicrous for the only province in place in the world but secondly she's at a pivotal time in her career like these. Oh l. and see gel draft prospecting. It's tough right. it's just an age. Where so yeah. It's probably selfishly Connected in that way. But i do feel when things don't make sense i. I compared it to be a teacher. It's like that teacher we had. Were you know every classes outside on a sunny day. You got that teacher that just says now just because you can't do anything about it and that's what it feels like it's just like there's no rhyme or reason to it we can try to make it sound like it's really dangerous all we want. There's precautions so yeah it's frustrating but i mean it's a frustrating time and there's bigger stakes here but i do think outdoor activities in general could probably be loosened so while so i'm playing a lot because we're able to be seen shot up. We know you told us yet. But i was really confused about the ontario regulations. Till i saw your when you straighten them out and you gave us the corporate update. I felt like i had a good handle on. What the hell was going on. You know i'm not thought that you put into that you know it's funny. I burn well. Here's the funny part of that.

Today it would have been one of the days that you have complained about in principle because you got the flight that landed Pittsburgh and you have one of the worst dries rocky. Where you guys got airport to the city and you hit that the traffic and all that and You know today whereas I probably would have generally in the past and making jokes about the ride or whatever it might that are all just slightly. Skewed negatives I put my headphones in. I listen to something I kind of took me out of that and to that extent I agree with you that Everything feels everything. Feels great right now and I. I took these days for granted because they felt like such a burden and they they never. Should they absolutely your Nanny Gel and you're traveling to another city to play another hockey game. I'm assuming you still smiled when he got to the tunnel in Pittsburgh like I'm almost there yup. Yeah that's when you know exactly right now bobby. So you're you're back with this team that. Oh my gosh through the youngest team around you must feel like thirty two. You must feel like you're the oldest Guy Miley. How do you view yourself as an older guy now or you just want to be a mentor? Do you want to be a leader? Do you want to just be a player? Like what goes through as you step back into this. I think ideally you you kind of you wear every cap in spurts for me right now. I WANNA finish the season as a player and and finish strong right. I WANNA I WANNA private that. I still have years left me because I don't know what my future holds. Two years left on the contract but You know you guys know as well as anybody. That's always that's always able to be taken away from me so I wanNA prove I can do that but at the same time. We've got a lot of kids at that are learning everyday life in the NHL right the the ups and downs and I guess the engine analysis of of dealing with coaching staff. And and you know it's very easy the young guy to get in your own out about things and So I guess there's a there's a sense that I'll be a sounding board for some of them and and you know guys have common. I hope they continue to come to any of these questions about things because you just WanNa you WANNA set their mind right so that they can play and And play to the best of their abilities and the future is pretty bright with a few of them. There's some really really good players that that you don't WanNa see get bogged down by the losing right of of of a process that that is a rebuild to you. You just want to keep them fresh. You WanNa keep it exciting for them and you want to expose them to to new things every now one of those young guys of course. Josh Norris and he's going to be part of the Ottawa. Senators future no question about that. How confident is this young? Because I mean this literally happened at a not last Thursday You've got the empty netter. And he is screaming for the PUCK. Is that accurate yes? He gave a yellow. I heard it Very very briefly and then I I check my shoulder to because I couldn't believe it I had to watch the video to really get you know. He expected me to threat of pass through the fence. That Yeah Eve. Excuse equate the kid. He's going to be a heck of a player. I am Bobby. Right in saying yeah. Yeah that's a first for me. I can say now I have at all but yes. You're he is one heck of a kit in euro. Are you really good hockey player? You're hundred seventy two games from one thousand. Is that His Eddie your brain at all. you know one of the one of the things. I thought about over the time out of the game was that number because yet you sign a seven year deal. Wh Twenty Six. I believe I was give or take. And you think that You know a thousand gain is is a no brainer Given where I was in a time of the contract and all that and you get some injuries and then I mean this is obviously a different circumstance. You look at all. The Man Games lost that I've had unfortunately broken hands and and this that It seems like it's a very you know uphill battle to get there right now but I would I would certainly like to. I'm certainly going to give everything I have to it. I still think I got the Machi lusted meat and That is the plan to keep keep climbing towards. The you mentioned your your hand injuries. I gotTa Tell Ya man. We're doing the broadcast. I've never seen a guy get hit in the hand. Do Wear Mittens. What do you think it's incredible isn't it? You can't you can only do so much. The gloves you guys now and we did a lot of them But you just I mean you can't plan for that I mean they're just majorly majorly freak accidents for you. Go out to block the shot and actually turned out of the way of shots to not get my hands at where everybody right up shop and break the inside fingered. I'm just so you can. I mean you can't write this so I I've been lucky. Knock on wood that I haven't had to deal with them once this year I had a Lotta time off. Obviously but it looks like I might get through one season unscathed on the injury. I gotTa tell you to be honest here. There there is a game. It was It was last year and a shot. Came the -flective hitching the hand. And you want to get looked at the producer says in my ear. Bobby's gone down the tunnel. He got hit the hand. I'm like Oh come on stop it and I was giving it to the producer among hit again. I'm like you're kidding me. And he's Nolan. Then I had A. I had a nice role he said. I don't care if we give up fifty shot tonight because your defense and gets forty eight. Just get out of the way. He's just I want that in writing and I want you not around the league to everybody. That's doing our game some color. Tv radio whatever it might be. Because I'm I need to be able to say that. I got permission to do that. But it was getting to. That point where it was it was almost laughable. Speaking of laughing take us back now obviously. It is a tenth anniversary of the Golden Goal. I did they bring that up with auto. I'm sure that they have right. Of course. Yeah of course they guys. I'm newly over and we're talking solutions but is this true and I think there's a video out there The Anaheim ducks possess the video. Where gets laugh? Perry is a neater buyer. Did they literally nickname you silver? Did that accident happen or or Chirp us at an actual Chirp of them calling you that came from Judea They had never named me. That but Somebody some some genius writer. Did it and I palled silver. It was once a week. It's it's amazing I I'll hear it on the ice around here walking around talent and somebody gets once a week and have just been able to escape it but The videos did turn out. Well I will. I will say that that We did a good job with those. And and I. I do wish I had you know. Read the fine print at that. Nickname was gonna stick with me forever. These former Olympians. Who are who are saying this to you on the ice or is it just some average player. Who got on the players have? Yeah no the players never hear it all the time around town like In Ottawa here from opposing fans. I get it yeah but never from the players thankfully because if I did I mean that's that's a fight on site. I think if he just lets you gotTa have a conversation right away or you can say yeah. At least I was in the Games. You were not well. You don't let I probably only played about three minutes. Then the guy that whoever allies I I remember ticket penalty the went okay. I think I'm GonNa Grocery secure for the rest of the way but that was the longest two minutes of my life. You still have the RV or did you get rid of that. And by the way Ray brought this up because we do a lot of preparation for the Rangers podcast and he asked me via taxi. Said does bobby still of the RV. And I said I don't think so didn't have didn't you name it like Gretchen. Or something like that What was her name Darlene Darlene? Sweet we waited and sold it to us in Idaho and we drove it for a bit. It got harder with kids so we sold it and Keep the family. I sold it to my dad's now takes up room in his driveway in South Jersey Do have to it and and I gave him absolutely zero of a deal. I signed up for every penny that was worth. But it's been some time since I've been in good old Darlie cat forget Darlene bobby. We really appreciate you taking the time to join us. Your great role model. Both on and off the ice and can't thank you enough for being so candid today my pleasure. Thank you for having me appreciate a you know we're fourteen array to be surrounded and what we do on a day-to-day basis and covering the National Hockey League. By so many good people you'll be in ownership management coaching Clearly the the number of players that we cross paths with you certainly on a day by day basis hard to beat the character of Bobby Ryan the adversity that he's faced you know he. He talks openly in the podcast. And the interview about going on a three day road trip. And then recognizing that now there. There was work that had to get done any. Couldn't put it off any longer. He's not that far removed from being away from that treatment process yet. He speaks so openly and so candidly about his experience and his future. I can't imagine even though he was describing it to us that head space of as he's on the ice in Detroit saying if I don't get off the ice now and leave I'm just GonNa Chalk this up to another bad day and grind my way through it and it'll you know and I'll just go on like he whatever rock bottom must have been for him. It had the come to a head in Detroit that day and I find like he said you know he's. He's an extreme introvert and yet he speaks so easily or openly. I just I have always found him to be a super engaging guy and easy guy to talk to in a you only hope for the best here forum for all of these people that go through some addiction recovery. They often talk about the difference between recovery and recovering and recovering is what they're doing. You Know Brian McGrath and has been a A really positive Example of someone that's been a decade has been sober for a decade in. He just passed a anniversary of it and manually. I saw them in Calgary When I was doing a game there he forgot. I hadn't seen him in a while for like how giant man he is and you know this ten years ago kind of brought him to his knees. And he's like I get I gotta get right and I have great admiration for for Bobby Ryan for for what? He's done what he's doing by being public with this and trying to give somebody else a glimmer of hope as to what can be very generous with his time joining us on the brain dregs hockey podcast. We tease this off. The top of the PODCAST and we're shifting over now to throat punch and we talked about how media over the last handful of days anyway as Talked about the major trophy winners in the voting process and really boiled into one right. And that's the quest for the Hart Trophy and I guess the primary reason Ray for having that conversation is because you've got connor mcdavid and Leon Seidel on the same team can two players on the same team be nominated in the top five for the heart and man..

Ray Ferraro your in a hotel room in Toronto Ontario Canada. We're living the life here right. I mean this is this is the lengths that we go to to bring the people what they want what they need what they deserve in just podcast greatness week by week. Oh Yeah it's It's phenomenal. I don't know how Your Hotel Room it's mine is a meat. It's like think of when Rocky Balboa was punching the flanks of beef Mike. Okay I don't know what is going on in my room here but the heater doesn't work or something. It's just like soul cold in here but I'm going I'm going to grind it out. It's that time of year. Drags you gotTa get it done? Z? You'RE NOT. It's not even like you're being punked by a former teammate. Who came in and readjusted the thermostat right so no just. No that was that was well thought out. Well planned by those Gla- by Chris Tamer. Jeff odd jobs and Sean. That was well but they made my room like an oven. This just freezing. Well I'll tell you this You know often almost on a weekly basis. Tiny the rain drags mascot will bark in the background and Our guests who by the way? We've got Tyler Seguin joining us later in the podcast of the Dallas Stars. Who's also a dog lover? So we'll talk about that But tiny will often bark. Create some sort of mayhem Don't be offended alarmed or annoyed. Please Ray at when you hear the vacuum cleaner banging against my door because I can hear the made on the outside. I've put do not disturb. That doesn't matter that doesn't matter if there is aggressive vacuuming. Yeah you can. This used to be a beef when when I was playing so like you take your nap. Hang the do not disturb all right. Well they're doing their job. They're not really concerned about if you're taking a NAP or not. It's the middle of the afternoon. Stop it and that is exactly what you you get the knock on the door but has happened a year. Maybe you got a dirty hall. I literally was just out there. Ten minutes talking with his lovely person saying please. Can You keep it as quiet as possible outside my door now? I was trying to explain the podcast. Apparently she's not a podcast fan. No she didn't care. She does not care what you're doing. She just wanted to make sure my towels refresh in the garbage. Was Was taken out. Okay what do you do when you come into the room though I hang out the do not disturb green choice thing? Yeah if I'm in the room for a week. Nobody enters the room but me right. I don't need someone. I'm the only person in the bed. I use one towel how I assume you use soap when you're in the shower once a week because I don't WanNa waste. Well there you go you come out your clean your towels clean. Hang it up. Dry it off. Use the same towel. Like what do you need more towels for? What come on man. You cannot use the same towel like shower. You Wash your face. You do a number of things over the course of date I I so i. I'll use one towel for a date but I've been in Ottawa since Monday night and I've probably gone through four towels in that time that grosses me out why I have a hand towel that you know when you wash your face wildly wants to know who you do. Your hand tells right Drake's I'm not I'm not eighteen. Would you grow up just a moment towels? You're wasteful man. Seriously I what is wrong with you. Hang it up. It's dry it's clean use it again. I know see I do embrace the idea the green choice when you check in particular but you gotta use it if I just thought how. What the Hell's the difference fair enough? You know the challenge of recording the podcast aside from both of us being in hotel rooms is significant with a trade deadline looming right. I'm GonNa tell quick story so I as I said. I arrived in Ottawa on Monday. Night so I go to the morning Skate Buffalo and Ottawa Tuesday morning and in one of the first players that I run into in entrenches. The bowels of the Canadian Tire Centers Mark Bore Viet Ski of the sands. He limps over. He's got the Bat Ankle and he looks at me and he goes man he goes. You're like the angel of Death. Like what are you doing here? But it's it's one hundred percent because again trade deadline is looming and all of these players. I he's not GONNA get traded. He's hurt number one and Ottawa's GonNa WanNa keep him you know there's talk of a two year extension there but honestly you know you're in the urine arenas three four times a week so it's not unusual to see Ray Ferraro Around the the dressing rooms when you attend mornings gates But in my case you know. They're looking at Megan. What is he doing here? There must be a trade developing or something along those lines. Well the thing is like everybody's so on edge and you know how none of the players follow social media. They all do they all do especially at this time of Year Right. Because everybody's looking for a scoop in you know any. I mean it's your life right so I ended up. You know remembering back to when I was playing in you. Call your agent have you. Have you heard anything because you couldn't ask them? We didn't have. There was no texting so he'd call. Have you heard anything? You'd go? Nope even if he had heard anything he was going to say. No it's because he's not GonNa send you into a panic for something that may or may not happen and then some guy would say. Hey I heard your name pop a discussion. Because his agent might have called him something. It's like it's like the game of telephone where you whisper into somebody's ear and then by goes ten people around. It's some completely different. It's everybody's following because it's it's really such a an unsettling time so I need some advice here so just before we started recording episode twenty A player agent did call me asked about his client and I flat out said No. This is the supplier that certainly on the block and likely could be traded. It's Game Day for this player and the agents will do you think I should tell them. I'm a no now I mean I know would you? You wouldn't have wanted to know that on a Game Day would you that? Potentially you're being graded no. I don't I didn't want I wouldn't want to know that. Like how and and like I said before the problem becomes. It might not happen so talented. The only thing you're thinking about is not the guy across from you you're thinking about. What am I doing here if I get traded? I've got a I wonder where it is. I wonder where I gotTA leave. I wonder like you're not even there and so no absolutely not so. I think we need to Explain something to our listeners. Here rate I sound crystal clear pristine in fact with my fancy road travel. Mike which I remember to bring with me as I always do And you on the other hand sound like you're talking through like a headset with through your ear buds. That's what I'm doing now. It's really funny that you would bring it up because like like you. Hey that's what you sound like. We're on a video hookup. You Idiot I mean we can see each other you know. I've got my headset in. Because my road mike which is exceptional is at home on my desk because I forgot it. Okay so so. You've acknowledged that we're on a video hookup correct. Okay just did I just hold on for a second my goodness you gotTa get in the Gym Man? So could again. I know canton that okay. Can we do the rest of the podcast when the just in a T. shirt? I'm wearing boxers but I don't have found some are you with this. Are you okay with that? I'm I'm totally totally fine. Within as long as you're comfortable and get yourself into the gym I definitely do after you get back into the gym no house. You can't go there and sit there. You gotta get on a machine you got to be. It's one of the reasons why I love traveling with you especially when we're at the world championships for an extended period of time because you shame me into exercise but I need it. It's it's it's not a big deal. You're a good guy it's all about. It's all about keeping yourself moving. You can't just sit there on your phone now. Delivering as Mark Bore. Viet ski says Angel of Darkness News to the players. Speaking of again let's promote our trade deadline post podcast. I mean we're going to be exhausted right at the conclusion of Monday's trade deadline. We're on the air for an additional three hours. Three o'clock eastern is the deadline. Where on the air till six we're GONNA race over into a studio at tsn right and we're GONNA do thirty. Maybe forty minutes of opinion and analysis of everything that went down on Monday as part of the trade deadline. Best part about the trade deadline is when it's over. That's what you have. The teams can't change anymore. You've this is your group that you're gonNA either make it to the playoffs with compete for the Stanley Cup. With or not and I I really kind of like that. This is a great a opportunity for sponsorship If you WANNA jump on board with the trade deadline post podcast you can do that. If you are interested in partnering with US HERE ON THE RAIN. Drake's hockey podcast. You can visit rate and dregs dot com and hit the sponsorship form. That's attached on the website. Let's take a look the five biggest hockey items this week. Ray and We know we're recording this. You're in Toronto for the leafs and the Pittsburgh Penguins So who knows how that game will go when people are listening to this? Love a pretty good handle on it by Jeff O'Neill the Oh dog Carlo Colaco on tsn. Ten fifty radio absolutely nailed the Toronto. Maple leafs This Week. And and truthfully because of the passion they seem to be the faces and the voices of a very angry maple leafs nation. They've got all world skill. Why why is this team struggling? So mightily ably. Well the the thing that everybody keeps coming back to and it's funny the players are talking about it. Mike Babcock was talking about it. At the start of the year Sheldon Keefe is referred to it for at various times in his tenure is that they're they lack urgency. They lacked commitment. They lack detail orientation to their play. It's the same thing over and over again so the game tonight. Which of course. By the time everybody's listening will will know what's happened But the game tonight really isn't about XS and Os and whether Dennis Malkin the new. The newest leaf is GONNA fit in on a third line or fourth line. Or whether they're gonNA change their four check. None of that matters tonight. Really what matters is do they have will.

And you don't have Alex Ovechkin which shocks me shocks me that you don't have Alex Avert. I'm glad you're shocked. Your forty points behind me were trailing Kurt. Hanlon who remains in first place with seven hundred seventy three points and Erin brewer man. This guy's a Gamer. He won the first half. He's not that far behind. Kurt Hamlin at seven hundred and sixty six point so as Aaron trying to use this as a retirement strategy. Yeah he was pretty happy. Do you check your instagram posts. I mean replies etcetera.

"And Tom. Kite will come up on the T. So Tom Kite was a really good player. For Longtime Therese Stone. Cold Tops One into the Gallery abode twenty five or thirty yards to the left of the Thi box any. He raises his shoulders up. Like right like we would do like. Oh My Gosh. That was terrible. It's you really got to see it. It's don't even have time to scream for. The whole thing was that that thing was a kill shot bullets into the crowd. We've got ask green drinks coming up some real great submissions raindrops dot com. You can check us out there or you can check us out on rand's on twitter as well social media channels instagram at Cetera. We're GONNA take between the benches and ray you want to talk about mark. Gorby ask the Ottawa. Senators and I fully endorse this discussion. Because I don't quite understand the approach of Peer Dory and I get it. He's got a slew of free agent sells top of the pages. Jj Patio. I get it. I get it but Kenny Hall and the Edmonton oilers appreciate recognized. What Zack Kassian brings to that organization? So they re upped Kassian four years at three point two. I think that's fair. Value for Zack. Kassian all provides Mart Barbie. That's for me doesn't get the credit for being good hockey player as he is but beyond that. What more can this guy do for the Ottawa senators and yet he and his family are being held hostage here. He doesn't WANNA leave Ottawa. I mean give him a contract extension of three or four years at two and change per and he's probably happy as can be while three years and six million bucks seems pretty easy. The Guy Wants to stay there. He's he's he is. He has been as loyal and as effective as he possibly can be. He lays it out on the on the line all the time. I was in buffalo the other night. He got hurt in the third period. He got his skeet kind of kicked out from underneath them by Kyle Okposo Yeah. He looked like he had heard his hamstring and his back kind of so he comes but he ends up coming back in the game. They're defending lead with the empty net. He blocks two shots from Marcus. Joe Hansen in about five or seven seconds and then banks off the boards for the empty netter in the room after the game. All the comments coming out of there were just the guys just they love them and I think to me of of the decisions that Dorian has to make this as an easy one. Because I don't think the return if you decide to trade bore. Viet Ski is going to be enough for you to make a significant difference in your overall plant he is. He is part of what you need on a team. And aboard the Eski was available for trade. I could see him One of those guys that nobody really talks about it the deadline he gets raided and then in five weeks ago while that was a really good addition because he didn't cost much and man that he play his ass off for us. I I like bore. Viet Sqi a lot and he would be for the guys that have to come in to adjust to a new system. He is about as low maintenance as there would be. And Look. I don't mean to peck at at Paradorn. I gotta believe gotTa believe that. Mark Mortgage is a priority because of everything that he brings to the community and to the Ottawa senators. Well so I hope so because he deserves it to us lots of times guys get signed you you don't you don't really have a strong opinion one way or the other but Viet Ski deserves to be signed. Let's go to the mail. Bag Right As Iran Drake's and question one is from Carol Anne and Caroline says I truly appreciate your guys awesome interview last week with Jayna Hefford? How big do you believe? The women's pro game could become in North America if it was supported by the National Hockey League and its teams and television partners like has happened with the NBA to grow the W NBA. Well when you say how popular I mean are you talking about the number of teams are you talking about the viewership. I think all encompassing it'd be supported and if it had the backing of the National Hockey League would it become as popular potentially as the WNBA? Tough one that's a tough one because you got to remember here you're starting from Ground Zero the NBA's got twenty year head. Start on you And there were lots of years where the WNBA was Kind of in the Wilderness. A little bit right like it was It was a less notable product because people were had to learn about it. If you want eight or ten or twelve teams you gotTa think that's roughly twenty two players per team. That's one hundred seventy ish players where they all come from because you want the quality to be as high as you can. And that's why I think a sixteen league sounds best because you're you're still talking about one hundred and twenty to thirty players you you would have to realize that of course that there would be injury so you'd have to bring people in can they all be from North America or are you going to bring players from from Europe to play if you bring players from Europe. How how do you? How do you pay them? How do you make it worth their while to come and play? And there's a lot of challenges and a lot of work to to getting it off the ground and then once it's off the ground that's just can be the launching point. I don't I don't have a great answer for but tight one. Because there's there's a lot of moving parts to it yeah thank you to. Caroline for that Just two questions. This week great. I'm busy I get stuff to do. Good metoo along from you and not to go all the on you you and says and he loved the digs by the way at Duffy last week. Who's enjoying Miami and Super Bowl by the way? How does Dorothy end up with the third best? Hairdo on that panel. Go Luke. Wilson's got the wild hairstyle. Jabari greer's right down to the would do it. And he's got whatever he does on his head but but James carries an entourage with him right like he's got make people that they might hire locally but I think they actually travel somebody from Toronto to look after and manage the hair. See I feel like I can make comment on hair. Because of my lack thereof right like what's he gonNA say? Oh you've got terrible hair. I know yeah see. I think he dips and he swears he doesn't. I I think that there's been a considerable M- amount of hair dye applied to James Dot these coloring over the years really. We'll we'll have to investigate this at the finals. Make the haircuts the same day or the every time I bring it up. He denies it so he'll denied again. Anyway I derailed. This thing you an is using Duffy as a jumping off point and he says which of the current First Round playoff matchups besides the battle of Alberta. Do you find the most intriguing and hope happens. Un says for him. It's the Bruins and the underrated Columbus Blue Jackets. He thinks could be a six seven game series and an upset special in the making with Elvis shutting out. The bruins possibly. What's your best match up? Who else do we have do. We no no not really I mean Tampa the Tampa Bay lightning Florida. Panthers could be a match up. I Dunno it. Wouldn't it wouldn't have the wide appeal. But I think it would be really cool to have the two teams from Florida. Play play against each other Now is there any way Boston? Philly can play affiliate up the second or yeah l. Boston would have to win the division. Then after billy would have to end up as the second wildcard. Yeah which is possible. Yeah we'll see. That would be a series. I would want because it takes me back to the Old Stanley Cup. Final and stuff like that. You know the one year were Boston. Had the three nothing lead in Philly came back and won four three after David. Krejci broke his wrist and That would be but I. I know if Columbus in a series it's going to be a physical one and yeah so I I don't I don't I don't know unless you unless you're given me exact examples. It's pretty tough to come up with a series isn't it? Yeah but let's thank you in any way. We didn't really answer his question or give them anything to work with but I'd say you added nothing to that fair enough. We have a number of great sponsors on the raindrops eggs. Podcast one of the newest and arguably one of my favorites is cool back and and I think you understand. Why are buds? It cool better now in Canada with their free to play website. Cool BET DOT CO and most importantly. They're picking up the TAB and our dinner bet for dinner bet and Switzerland so a shout out to our European friends cool bet for doing this. I can't wait. I'm really looking forward to this dinner. I'm really pleased that they're on board a loved that they'd like the podcast and they wanted to get involved. I can't believe behind the scenes. You work this. We can thank rob gray part of the backbone of this enterprise for getting this done and by the way you should check this out. Cool Bet as sports betting school on cool bet dot co so you can brush up on how to do your sports wagering the right way especially with Super Bowl. Sunday coming up as of the PODCAST recording this Thursday Thursday morning the current line and the game is Kansas City minus. One point five. Who are you packing? I think that's right so right. That sounds right. Yeah that's right. Okay so I. My Fan says Kansas City because I liked the way they play in love watching Pat. Mahomes play but I think San Francisco is just too good this year. Really really good. I'm with you. I Love Kansas City and part of it for me not to just pile on James Duffy. I mean James. Duffy is a lifelong San Francisco. Forty niners fan. Oh does he ever? Yeah and we don't have skin in the game. He seems to so. That's just extra incentive for me to cheer for the Kansas City chiefs while I guess so what you're saying. You're not really cheering for somebody to win. But you're hearing for James to lose.

You've probably twitter ones or at least a union started a company called well inspired travels now rain. I spend a lot of time in Slovakia last year. Beautiful Country Switzerland in May now as the destinations that you and your wife or promoting inspired travel sterling for sure. Switzerland's an awesome location. Yeah no we're you know. What are what's worldwide we're We're we're basically. It's a boutique. Luxury travel business that caters to anyone but our niches athletes and former athletes and and sports executives and sports personalities and people that You know it's terrible to see what happened with Koby and as we're starting this business and I mean that's that's what we're talking about. How how he was with his family. And how invested? He was with his family and a lot of times as an athlete. When you're playing your so invested in your sport and so investing in your game a lot of times. Your family goes by the wayside and it's it can be very Quick as we all know the sport and can be you know you see this happen in your life life in general. You never know what's going to happen at the next turn and when we started this it was about bettering at for other families you know. I never had a travel agent. I never had somebody doing travel. I did it all myself. You know in partnership with my wife throughout my career and and we really kind of you know. I wish I would've had one because I would have gone to more places I would have seen more would have experienced more but I was so worried about eating and training and being prepared and and not losing a beat while we were travelling that we went back to a lot of the same places. Because I knew what I was getting at. I knew there was a gym. And all the rest of that stuff and now with you know in today's era with where all the health and wellness trends and everything. That's kind of gone on with that. And and where where you know from fitness centers to culinary to The spies to all the things that players do on a regular basis. Now you can get more access to that throughout the world and and you'll be able to experience more with your family and really understand What it can do for your family if you look at a new culture and and you know maybe you WanNa give back as talking to a guy. One wants to go to Africa and I was a little shocked. He'll yeah we WANNA do a mission trip. I'm like Oh man. Wow all right so you want to incorporate a mission trip inside of a safari and on and on and on I mean there's so many cool things that you can do And so many amazing places in this world and and it's really just about experience.

We've gotten You know some pretty good traction so far and and made a lot of great relationships and you know. I think the biggest thing to for us on the athlete side is is is the mentoring side of it where I can't tell you how many times you know. Obviously I was injured a lot over my career. But you know especially in the last one with my in my head It it really brought. It brought to me where everybody asked me every single day. How you doing you know when you come back. You know how you're feeling you know. Do you need anything. But but not once. Did anybody ever talked to my wife or my kids and ask them how they were and and I think you know on the family side of things. I think that you don't really pay attention to it. You don't really think about it. You know you know. Nobody wants to say the Word Concussion. But a guys out with a concussion. He's out to three years. And you hear some of the stories about guys not know why they are forgetting what you're doing and all the rest of that stuff and you know if it's a twenty six twenty seven year old with a young wife and a young family. She's a dear. And unless you know what's going on you got nobody to talk. Nobody really knows what's going on so we're excited about about China help and not regardless of all and it's You know you have an opportunity to to try to get back and and help those That come after you and and it's been It's been very rewarding so far and we're looking forward to hopefully A long Long run. That's why it's well inspired travels It's a terrific service. We look forward to learning more about it. we'll let you go this How are you with middle seats and rooms with a windows because that's always refer icon middle seats when I first when I first turned pro in Hartford we? We were still flying commercial so being the rookie. I always got the middle seat. You must have when those yeah. I don't think the people I was sitting beside enjoyed that very much and the windowless rooms. Yeah we don't that's not part of our Bailiwick travel you get a room with a view and quite a few more amenities It sounds great. All the best to you and your family prongs and good luck with your family. Your sons your daughter basketball. I know they're all big basketball. Yes absolutely thanks guys appreciate it. Thanks for the Best Bronx. Thanks for coming on eight. Thanks right sounds like Chris. Pronger rate had a Darren Gregor household. Moment they're getting sketchy you know. The the line was starting to buzz a little bit. Yeah and then. He talked about his dogs. Were GonNA bit Squirrelly because somebody was ringing the doorbell and he's trying to do seventeen things at once and man. Do I know that? Act every week on the podcast and knock on wood. We haven't heard tiny the raindrops hockey podcast mascot in this episode episode seventeen yet. So no one's we've heard tiny off air. It is such a deep rover whatever he does there right so but no. We're thanks to prongs for coming on the last defensemen to win the Hart Trophy You know an amazing player hall of Famer but he was involved a lot of shenanigans. How many times was he suspended eight? Yeah that's a lot and as he said you know sometimes just happen. You remember the one was it the Stanley Cup final. No seven with the ducks any tag. Dean mcammond Oh you mean rate to the button elbow to the head. If that happened now he'd get ten games that it was so and it wasn't even wasn't hidden. It was right in the middle of the ice now that at the time. Everyone's like well. It's one game in. The finals counts as two. Yes and we isolated a clip as part of the promotional work of the Rangers. Podcast where he talked about how. That's the only way he knows how to play and he was like that when he was six years old. Could you imagine you're just starting to skate? I assume Chris was tall when he was saying. It's probably about five eleven at that point. Could you imagine going out there? And you're like Oh my God that tall kid. He's he's mean I don't know if I want to play all right so he has three children. I don't know if we got entirely into this basketball players. Seventeen year old boy is six foot. Seven is fifteen year old is six foot three and hasn't hit puberty so like man the Dean's monsters all right. Who's your Throat Punch candidate? This week I I had to dig a little bit for this one and I don't think you're gonna like it but so because because I'm trying to let myself off the hook I want you to go first with your throat. Punch candidate for episode seventeen. Okay I'M NOT. I don't have a throat punch from this week. Okay so so I was thinking back. What's bugged me or Kinda irk me this year that in the last few weeks or a month or so that I'd that I'd like to use and so I came up with. I got a text in a game from players. Dad Talk about something that I had said on the air about his son and I never responded but I thought I am having a conversation if I choose to get into it with an NHL players. Dad like why would they? This is not Bantam. Like why would you care? I mean I know it's still your son and your emotionally attached. And you don't like that if somebody says something negative about your son but seriously don't send me any tax so ray water. It's a positive tax. What if dad tax you to say? Hey Ray I really appreciate your analysis on little billy's play. I really appreciate that. So feel free to send those but if if you want to critique it's like the old old line that coaches say okay. I've got an open door. Yeah so coming in discuss everything. But you'd better be ready for the answer. If if dad wants to debate like I'm all if he wants to debate something I said then I'll be honest. I love it. This might be my favorite punch of the year and NHL Hockey texting like right so when we see statal all hockey dad's or hot sport parents and then the guy's a pro like who cares if you're a pro enjoy your son planned in the best league in the world. There's there's advice okay. So so from my favorite throat punch of the season thus far too. I'm just going to say this one's lame but I'm thrilled protein. Whoever designed the ten point target for the NHL All-star and the reason is you know? I guess they had to build a frame for this thing so that it would hold the netting so that obviously would catch pucks in wouldn't fall over. I mean they're shooting from how far away up high but but a number of guys Martin are included. It looked like he had put three in the ten point. Target but one actually sailed over the outside frame through the whole and into the net and didn't count so whoever made that frame who designed that frame gets my throat punch. Well I'm not GonNa say it's lame because I understand. They wanted to try something new but that one kind of fell flat. Yeah because everybody just as you would you look out there and you're like oh if I shoot for the one in the middle that's the most points. Why would I shoot for the one before three points over there? That makes no sense. Brad Hall shanking. It took a piece of my heart. I get did I mean he. He just called shanked it. He wasn't even he almost hit the fans on the right side of the building. They needed netting all the way around. Yeah going to the only thing I but this was a approach still in his in his prime these at least retire you know like so he shakes it. You can youtube worst. Pga drive ever.

I'm like man you hit your home run you should be pomp and you throw your arms up in the air if you want and because a lot of things had gone on to build the momentum to that moment much like riddick's poke check last night but I didn't like it the more I thought about it. I'm like why don't I like it like that's crazy not to like it like we want the players to show emotion and they've clearly there was so much built into that. And when when I look at it now and I see the highlights of Batista's flip the backflip. I'm like of course he should have done that. Like that was that was great. I would've I would've wanted to do the same thing for sure. So when I saw David Riddick yesterday we we talk about all. It's entertainment as well while man the guys pumped he's in the other building and he's it's like a mic drop like. I thought it was awesome. Yeah and remember. Last year he had they were in overtime. And Johnny gdre think they were in Denver and Gujral had a breakaway in overtime. And before it was in the net riddick had his arms up in the air. He was way out in front of the crease. And I'm like man that's part of his personality. Other guys aren't going to do it but he did. And I don't have a problem with it at all. I'll tell you what if that's me. I'm riding my stick and I'm slapping. My backside do everything within my own realm of possibility to piss off the wall. And you know that they're looking at it and they're like screw you pal. Like they hope riddick play Saturday. They hope they can get one hundred twenty three goals on him right like they just they don't they wouldn't like it but I thought it was. I thought it was actually a pretty cool ending to a terrific night hockey. It really truly was. It's episode seventeen of the rain rigs hockey podcasts. We've got Chris pronger standing by as we've alluded to Ray. Let's get into this week's top five headlines. The presentation of our bowels at lagaras jewelers. You can check them out at LAGARAS DOT com for all of your Valentine's Day shopping needs to remember use code Ray ten and you'll save big box. Lagarto DOT com earlier in the season. You referred to the Vancouver canucks Raymond as the best team in Canada now in fairness it was early in the season and they went through some tough times. Some Dark Times Ashley. Right after I said that here like oh thanks. Yeah in that market. You probably took some heat. It was my fault but back on top in the Pacific division a bit of a sloppy division to say the least but Diaz stand by that claim today given the fact that they've gone through adversity they faced some challenges and they've come together as a team. I still I think if I were do select today I would. I would have Toronto in front of them. Only by a miniscule margin. I Vancouver's the type of team. That would be a bear to play against in a playoff series and In talking with Travis Green. Their head coach one of the things he said that That is really a strength of their team. Is they kind of figure it out themselves? The players like as they play. What's their best style? What's their best way of playing? And they are aggressive. They're fast the really skeet. Like push the pace travis. Wants them to be aggressive in almost every spot around the ice. They've gotten excellent goaltending. Whether it's Jacob Marks Jerome or fatter dempo who was unreal against Saint Louis the other night They've got this consistent high end production from Quin Hughes. Who's had a terrific year? He scored in San Jose last night. Jt Miller been outstanding the best year of his career. Elliot's Patterson is is a star legit star and And then bullhorn VAT his. He's shown I think the reason that they selected him as the captain and he plays this all over the ice style. He takes more face offs than anybody in the League but Ryan Riley and I've left brock besser because he's kind of been put in a little bit of a secondary role. They wanted some balance in their scoring. And the guy that's exploded as Jake Virtanen got fifteen goals now right so i. I like their team a lot. I mean the the biggest challenge I mean. I look at those five teams in the in the division Arizona Vegas Edmonton Calgary and Vancouver. And I don't see anyone that's any better than anybody else I think they're kind of all the same So if you if you fall into a three week slump and you you play nine games and you only pick up a few points that might be enough to put you in a hole that you can't get out of looking so tight and I don't. I don't see anybody running away. I don't really see anybody falling apart. I'll be really interested to see if somebody can make a significant addition At the deadline. That like this could be the one area where a really good player changes the balance of a team's future in this year right and I don't get the sense in talking with connects management that Jim Benny's likely to do a whole heck of a lot as he's made clear to local media in Vancouver most of your shopping was done in the offseason. And I don't know that the Vancouver canucks need to add. But let's switch divisions to the central because the Winnipeg jets as we talked about on insider trading on Tuesday our most definitely identifying top four defenceman. They need some help. They've needed help all season long and the truth is if they don't find help they may be in store for a better draft pick in June than than what they were. Thinking is an absolute. Must that shoveled off? Gozo does whatever is possible to acquire that defenseman. No and the reason I say I mean yes from a on the ice standpoint hundred percent. I mean I did three games at the end of Jenn. What's January now I guess when the heck was it I guess it was two weeks ago. A couple of weeks. Oh Man I don't know one day anyway. I did three games in a row with the jets and in that time they were really excited to get Dmitri Kulikov and Lucas visa back in the lineup and with all due respect to guys who play in the NHL though should not be game changing guys that come back in. But Paul Maurice's had I don't know how many defensemen he's had to shuffle in and out and around the lineup and and then they're you know so that's Maurice's problem Kevin. Chevrolet offs problem is that he's trying to build as good a team as he can. He's got a six point. Seven million dollar hole in the middle of the Roster Drake's. Maybe you know this. Why does the dust in Buffalo in arbitration takes so long like? Is it not like okay? Everybody here's the date running your paperwork. Let's get going on well to be fair Ray. I believe that the players association isn't pushing to schedule a date because nobody is convinced that dust in buffalo is common back either this season or at all so I guess at some point. There's going to be a reason for challenging loss dollars but maybe there won't be. Maybe that'll be part of the case of the National Hockey League. If he just decides that he can't come back that that he's done so I think the Players Association and the League for that matter. I want a better handle on whether or not this guy has any intention of coming back before they expedite that process. Well well how are you GONNA know? Well he's going to be getting you can use right right like you're you're gonNA ask him because I would say you know that can be a yes or no and it really. Does that mean anything right so I I just think it's I think from the NHL Perspective. I'm surprised that a member team is stuck in limbo. Like this young. It's not fair to them. At drags you know. I side with the player. Ninety nine and a half percent of the time and this is the other half. I don't think it's fair to the jets. I don't think it's fair to their fans that they have. This unresolved issue that you know. We never know really what goes on behind the door but it just seems to be hang in there and so the reason I say that Kevin Chevrolet off. The general manager shouldn't necessarily go ahead and do whatever he can is to add. A top four is A. I wouldn't be interested in a rental player. They they gave up a first round pick. Two years ago for Paul Staff Nate and he was outstanding. Last year it was for Kevin Hayes and that fell flat. I mean they were trying. They were in a position they felt they. They could make a difference in act two years ago they almost made made it Stanley Cup finals right now. So but you've blown. Oh first round picks now. I know they've acquired some in the trades that that They've brought back. But if you make the playoffs which would be iffy even if you get a top four guy like if you're in like how much damage can you really do? So I don't know if this is the time be blown out assets. I know the people in Winnipeg. Don't love to hear that but it doesn't matter what happened a few years ago. You're you're in today and you can't you can't blow out assets even though they do have some very very good young prospects coming we see them at the world. Juniors that means there are a couple of years away or eighteen months away. We see those guys. They're in a tough spot and they're they're in a tough spot but I I wouldn't. I wouldn't chase it at all costs. We're we're GONNA talk about the Maple leafs in the Montreal Canadian shortly but just timely you were in Nashville for the leafs and the pres- on Monday so if we stay within the central here the Nashville predators man are they as bad as they look because when I watch the natural predators. I don't see even remotely a level a consistent level of compete. Well I I was really disappointed them. Coming out of the break Now Toronto dominated that game. It was Toronto's first game out of the break and it was nationals first game in Toronto dominated that game virtually the whole night.

"From utilize partnership with tsn. Welcome to episode. Seventeen of the ray and drags hockey. Podcast I'm in Brooklyn on -Tario Raya somewhere near Vancouver. In his palatial compound a state is what the Ferrara family likes to refer to it. As early this morning. It is early right now. It is early. You're looking fresh though I I mentioned this. I mean it's as we record us here on Thursday. It's six twenty eight. Am Pacific and aside from. Maybe not needing shave you. Look you look fresh. I'm glad to know that you notice. I've had a beard for three years. Like why why would I have? Why would I shave? But do you call it a beard when it's not really a full beard like when. I don't WanNa Look. I don't WanNa look like the guys like the you know the players who let it grow all the way. Oh by you know. I mean I'm not doing that. And besides it would be way too gray so so. You're of Italian descent if you wanted to like. Could you literally grow your beard and ours? Are you one of those men not if you sneeze? Your beard grows like a quarter of an inch. Yeah I know I would say my brother has got. He's got that side of the of the genetics where he'd Shave in the morning. And then if you really gave a damn he'd shaven but is that goes. Yeah but he doesn't. He's like yes. Whatever so we've got a great podcast coming up. We've got Chris pronger with the Florida Panthers but obviously he's a Saint Louis Native. That's where he makes his home so he'll join US coming up in the PODCAST. Shortly we've gotTa talk about a few things and we're going to do it here in the opening but let's go back to the all star because we had Jane Halford as as part of episode sixteen terrific guest. She coached team. Canada Against Cami Cammi GRANATO coaching team. Usa and as everybody knows Canada. Beat the Americans in that three on three women's game as part of the Nhl all-star event we saw Cami and team USA unload ton of Budweiser handing over as part of the bet to the Canadians. The winners was their side. Deal in the Ferraro house like on either between you and Cami or did you have something because you're an awkward spot right. I mean. Of course you're Canadian. You Cheer for Canada but there is that marital thing there is that I I always hope Cami team win gentle cheer without cheering against Canada. So I was Kinda hoping for two to tie and then they would figure out something else. You can listen to the podcast and When she heard of the deal with the fantasy bat for you and I were basically you pay the bet without paying it. She's like this is brilliant. And so you can throw your hands in the air if you want but you got out of a bet you're paying nothing and you suck you stink up ground now. You're giving up too much information or that's later in the podcast. People have been listening for sixteen episode. People been listening for sixteen episodes. Well aware of your position in this thing and by the way I didn't propose to cool but by the way cool that dot. Co they came to us. They came to us Rei and they suggested that they helped me out in Switzerland. If I had any pride you would say thank you for that but but no I really deserve or I really need to pay this bat. So in other words No there was no side bet. Budweiser came up. Large and the girls have fun. There was not left on that trae that cart that That that was work through pretty well and I also noticed that are pals from spitting checklists delivered to cases of that seems to be a lot. That's aggressive and like we're the ladies supposed to just pour that down prior to three like its vodka for heaven's sake yeah. I think the idea was to get through the game. I think that was the thought engine. Wish did you check the water bottle. You weren't there so obviously didn't perhaps Cami should have data. That's the old the old barely guys bottles you go. He's got a couple of guys that are got some foreign substance in. There's so we let just full disclosure. We recorded the interview with Chris. Bronner on Wednesday with purpose. Were not recording episode. Seventeen until this morning which is Thursday morning because both of us wanted to tune in to the battle of Alberta last night right the big rematch between the Edmonton. And the Calgary flames. You know the outcome the flames winning a shootout four three any part of that game in the build up disappoint you I aside from the right nugent-hopkins fight with SEAN. Monahan was was amusing. It was certainly unexpected. We expected CASSIE and to go and and they did but generally speaking. It's it's one of the better games that I've watched. I think this season isn't it amazing? As much as the skill that we all trumpet and Love It soon as there's conflict in a physical sport the game moves to another level. And so the animosity that had built up over the last couple of weeks and position in the standings made the game important and so you have friction. You have contact or a a contrast of the way the teams looking incident and you have conflict and that always makes the game no matter when it is better than than it might be otherwise. I mean how many people are on. Were on twitter saying man. Please a first round playoff series. I thought I thought the game was fantastic nugent-hopkins and Monaghan looked to guys at never fight. And I know because that's I don't know if my fights ever had that many punches but they were that unstylish you're the first guy I thought of and I mean this with great respect when those two guys dropped the gloves. I'm thinking I don't know like like who would be an equal Ray FERRARO verses cooed. You fight that would compare to nugent-hopkins and Monaghan we're fighting. Maybe the worst fighting. Nhl History was me and Garry Galley. And Gary Galleys. Actually a big dude. He is but he doesn't know how to fight either. It was so bad we fought and I think we got four minutes for roughing not always the most embarrassing thing is. You're in a fight and they give you the whole minor for roughing. You're like they can't even give me five for that. Which has happened a few times this and there's a conspiracy theory out there that the NHL is doing it. Just to keep fighting majors down right now. I think they just want to say to the back in the day I think they. You guys don't know what you're doing. You're embarrassing the game. Keep your gloves on. Not Getting what go go say. Drake's I love the game. I thought you know the intensity of it. How fast it was you could tell. It meant something so I was. I was all into that. Yeah a couple of separate incidents aside from the two fights and I liked. Just wrap the Kassian Kabq fight. I like how both responded post game to Zack. Kassian showing professionalism and respect to Matthew Chuck by acknowledging that. Hey you know. The kids stood up for himself. You can't ask for more than that. And then matthew explaining that he didn't feel like he had the fight. He wanted to fight mostly because of the number of punches. He took the last time they played. So that's fair enough for me. I think everybody can move on a some people. Don't like it. Some people like it. Some people are always trying to define what's in the code and none of us really know because the reason it's unwritten is because there is no real code. It's just a feel for how things should go and that was about. It's perfect example of what the code might might include. And so I was. I was happy that look at look at fights like I used to when I when I see two guys. Fight the first thing. I hope nobody gets hurt right right because we've seen too many guys get take one then and they're hurt yeah So the Fight Happen. That was it It seems like that's a bow on it however I can't imagine that the oilers are too thrilled with Marcher. Dano today yeah it's funny because we had as you mentioned. We had Chris pronger on yesterday and he he talked about because of course it had he been in that game yesterday he would have been in the middle of something for sure one hundred percent and he he mentioned that you know. It's not like you go out there and you're trying to hurt somebody. A play happens fast. Stick Lego here a hippo. Dare and that's basically what happened and John was beat and he sticks his leg out and and because it's David or even if it wasn't mcdavid but especially because it was mcdavid right. I mean that rightfully so he's passed and he and he should be. And so I. I CAN'T IMAGINE EDMUND. Inside is is too thrilled with that. No but look so I I did the Edmonton Radio Earlier this morning Dustin Nielsen and we talked about it and and I want your view on this. Now there's a history of of Marcher Nanno doing us. He has a history yet. I don't believe he's a dirty player. I think it's exactly as you described. There's a flat-footed defenseman. Maybe he's losing his mobility as every player does they get and he sees ninety seven. Common Adam Belvin speed to the neutral zone. He knows he's he can't turn and catch as he goes by so just natural instinct. Isn't it to throw an elbow? Get a Lego. Just try and do something to get a piece for sure it is and with. It comes the consequence of the you know. It's a dangerous play I I don't I don't ever think of him as a dirty player. No but this is a good move. It's dirty play now penalty. Yes it's a penalty for sure. Yeah so so. The as I won't say as a guy gets older because I mean I guess well as a guy gets older. That's one way but also there's there's guys just aren't as mobile as others. That's a defense defense men's decision every time. Do they back off or do they or are they close enough that the gap can be tight and they can take them away and so you're donald got caught and so really? The two options are trying to stick your hip or knee out and hope you get enough of them to slow him down or just let them go by and not not initiate any contact right. Neither is a very good option. Well it feels the next one and we're kind of dating ourselves when we look to Saturday. I mean this is episode. Seventeen but you know we do have to look into the future Will there be any follow up. And then Furthermore David. The goaltender for the Calgary flames. I don't know if you liked it. I love the backflip. After the poke check on Leandra side shoot..

"Here I can't believe you're pulled this off with it's fantastic. Actually it's a credit to the podcast in general but also because of the fantasy hockey pool which impart you created? I mean this is one of the things when we talked about a podcast that you thought we should. We should have apart right. Aaron Reuter wins the first off. He's in good shape. You know still early in the second but he's pretty excited about it so cool bet dot. Co caught wind of this. And and they're they're they're feeling for me here right because of our bet and the fact that it's looking like I making headway this week but the fact that I looking like I'm GonNa have to buy you dinner in Switzerland in May be upgraded from when you say they feel for you. Does that mean they're laughing at you or they're feeling for little bit a a little bit of both 'cause. I mean really dregs. You are the hockey insider and picking pools. Not all right. Well thank you to cool bet. Dot Co will have more on their involvement coming up later in the PODCAST. Let's switch over to our top five items of the week and I grabbed a point ray in the regular season where it now makes sense to start paying closer attention playoff races. I'm always annoyed. And James Duffy is among the worst Easter time filler. He's an excellent host. Probably the best in the business but probably around game thirty of the regular season. He starts wheeling out. You know the standings own. What are the standings batter gained thirty? But when you get to game fifty And the regular season the second half is well underway. It's it's starting to heat up in a mate sense so we're gonNA probably weekly basis continue to chew on the playoff races that Pacific Division. The Western conference is an absolute mess. And then you look at at at the central division not long ago. I'd have thought that Stan moment should be moving pieces out and beginning if not a full on rebuild and certainly a hearty renovation but it looks like blackhawks is still alive. Does that way it to you. Yeah you know Drake's the the the one thing as the as a as a player you know. I know you say like Daffy sitting there and fiddling around with his paper because he doesn't do anything on a computer it's really it's really quite remarkable this guy Do what he does. Because I think I was amazed how good James is on the air when you watch his notes. Because it's like a third grader. But anyway it gets it all done as for the standings when you're a player there's a point in the season where it's just dragging on. It's like the you know you're in it's in the Games thirty to fifty SORTA range. It's like you've played so much or start to get beat up a little bit or a lot your teams you know in a slump that travels get to you. It's like the season goes nowhere. When you get here you come back from this break. And every trainer does the same thing that you know. Those printed schedules the little printed ones. Yeah Yeah Well. They have them on the inside of their trainers trunk. One of the many pieces of equipment. They've gotTa Lug around all year and they put black XS through the months. So there's September October November all of a sudden you start to see the calendar with the X. is through the end of January and you're like man. There's no time left like it really feels Super Urgent. And so if you can go if you've been struggling and you've kept yourself around the races and you can go on heater here for about four or five weeks. When teams are a lot of guys are slogging through the the heavy part of the schedule all of a sudden won five straight like Chicago right. And you're you're in the race like the blackhawks are earth three points out of the wildcard. They've got a game in hand. It's really quite amazing. Because I'm with you drake's I thought they were done like I thought this is. It's just it's time for them to move on the just before the break. They went back to back nights in Toronto. And then they go home to Winnipeg and you know the the Great Patrick Kane scores his one thousand th career point. He becomes a ninetieth player in history. It got really good goal tending Corey Crawford. Fortunately is is back in healthy? He's a fantastic. Goalie and Robin Leonard Continues. His redemption. Story You can't help but be happy for for Leonard. They've got two good goaltenders got high end. offense of talent of course. Kane but taves is Jonathan. Tapes has started to heat up a bit. We talked last week about Dominic Google leak. He's got twenty one goals now. Their defense is kind of mixed and matched around Duncan Keith. Who seemingly plays forever and Chicago's back in it. It's really it's really pretty cool as for the Pacific. Division there's Vancouver. They're sitting at the break. Their one point up In first place and they're twenty four hours from being in fifth place. I don't think I've ever seen a division like this. And what it reminds me of Drake's I don't know what you think but like I've always thought that the the league should go for the three points regulation win two points for an overtime or shootout win and one point for an overtime or shootout loss and the reason I liked that is because then every game is worth the same number of points and that makes sense to me. I watch my son's in Berlin this year and the German League Landon and that's how they do it and you really feel like you've like you've lost even when you win in a shootout or overtime if you kick away a late lead you see. The team is like they know. They gave away an extra point. Their rights matters yet when I see the NHL standings like they are today. I don't know it's kind of. It's an imperfect recording of the standings with the different points for each game. But how can you argue with so many teams fighting over position so many fans that are so have to be so engaged because their team can go from top to middle of their division in almost? No time I I love the way it is right now we I do too I and to some degree. It's bad for business for me from an insider perspective. Because you know people ask all the time in radio interviews when you're out Noda Games and whatnot you know. Why are there? So few trades in the NHL while park that is because of the parody that exists in the NHL. The other of course is the cap and then the third element which impacts every team is is the injury bug and you know how big of a bite it's taken out of your of your roster. I'd be curious if you went through the exercise and applied your your point system. What the Matrix would look like if you went through it. I'll be an exercise to do it but it'd be interesting to see how much of a a shakeup there would be. Yeah you mean like if if they had the three points for that yeah for sure. I just think it's a I don't think it's as big a deal as we might think offers there's some teams would probably you know really really benefit from him. You'd have to get in and see you know like For example Washington's. One thirty games in regulation or overtime. Yeah right but how many of those are? I don't know off hand. How many of those overtime Wednesday have because those were the only two points exactly and then you you look at the standings and Somehow Boston's into overtime and lost twelve times like overtime or shootout twelve times while and so when I look at that I think okay. So they're not built to play three on three or to be in the Shuto While in the playoffs. That doesn't matter because when you go to overtime it's five on five now. They have a plus thirty three goal differential. So does that even wants to rent. Does it even really matter? So I'm I'm really interested in it too I delete not going to change the only way you're going to get more player. Movement is if they somehow in the new bargaining agreement. Come up with a you. Know a a franchise player or something that you take off your cap if you so. Choose to give more wiggle room to make trades because injuries. Yeah it's the standings but the cap seems to drive it all now doesn't it? Yeah and that franchise player actually. That's part of a question and ask Ray and Greg so we'll revisit later in the podcast Ray. The Toronto Maple leafs are out of the playoffs. Believes fans have been listening to the podcast eagerly awaiting your reaction and analysis of of where the Maple leafs are at this point of the season man. Has it been up and down clearly? Doubt for Mike Babcock. He's no longer on the bench. But it's been that seesaw battle for Sheldon Keefe going into this break as well. They missed the playoffs. I mean it's nothing short of disastrous. It I think if there if they miss the playoffs the only way this season could be framed is an absolute disaster. There there would be no other way. The expectations were high even though you looked at their team in September and really the same evaluation would apply today. That's that ooh. I don't know how that the fence is. GonNa hold up you know. I don't know if they can keep the puck out of their net yet. It's certainly a different even a different story now with with. Oj caused Without Morgan Riley. I mean you take a third of your defense off any team. When you'RE GONNA struggle you take your top two left handed defenseman out of the roster. You're GONNA struggle and kind of the way it is. But they can't keep the puck out of their net they defend and and until the figure that out or they make an evaluation of okay. We're GONNA have to change some things They're going to have a tough time. Like their starting goaltender. Freddie Anderson is who I think is a good goalie. I think he's very good. He sprung a leak here in the last little bit. His last twelve starts. He's given up forty two goals against Three point five goals against a game. You can't beat anybody like that. And if you do beat people. In December and January you're not beating teams in April and May giving up three point five goals again. And so the the names bandied around regional Andre Johnson cus Berry captain and even Alexander Kerr foot they might have to sacrifice a forward to get some help on the Blue Line Just think of think of teams and go out if I traded a three point. Two million dollar forward.

"And I needed that guys like. I needed that because I was on the verge of bailing. Because I was hurting I would look at it. I'm still scared but I was hurting and I was scared and the caretakers and caregivers out there we have to make sure we're looking out for them as well like my. I never saw my wife down and never saw her week. I never saw her worried around me but I sure to hell no is that. When she wasn't around me she would let her guard down in in in. Be Worried so we need to make sure now checking on the people that are sick but also we need to look after the caretakers and caregivers. Because they're going after a they're going through a lot mentally so we need to make sure we're taking care of them and that's something my wife and I have put our our hearts into to making sure that we are all taking care of the caretakers and caregivers but that for me got me back on my feet. Look it we cried. I cried for about an hour after that. Trust me I mean I hugged my wife and I you know I just was like okay. I'm GONNA okay now I. I'm going to get back on track. Your I'm just GonNa go one day at a time not gonNA worry about the next treatment. I'm not going to worry about February twenty first or you know if I don't feel good then okay. I don't feel good but you know so for me that was that was the turning point In my battle and I know there are a lot of people out there that are listening or no people that have gone through it and can really relate and The taxed the calls both of you guys at the forefront of that Um in reaching out to let you know to let me know that you guys were thinking about me here just to talk It helps a lot of people. Don't know they feel like you're bothering them or they feel like you're don't know what to say but just being yourself and getting into your relationship with that person goes a long way so you know. I know there's a lot there but for me That second treatment is where I needed to get straightened out and Diana check Grabbed me by the short hairs and pretty much set me straight and I put back my hockey helmet on and got back that mentality that we all have in his great game and that helped me get through because It certainly tested me and tested. you know my my will to live and proud to say that. I'm going on two years cancer free and got a big scam coming up in March and The farther away from February twenty first of twenty nineteen Better you know the the better that I feel so Very I'm sorry eighteen. Sorry Twenty Eighteen You know the better and more confident that I feel so very lucky. Very blessed with all the help that had the support And the team of doctors that I had a very very lucky for for all the prayers as well. I can't even imagine any the changes that you under go through that whole battle and the time line that you were laying out for us. What's different about Eddie Olczyk? Today than three years ago or Ray. Hook it in our relationship. There's there's there's no bull it's like you know. Tell me what I need to know. Not What I wanNA hear right like th that's that's us that's that's that's and it's like that's what it is honestly ray. I think what helped me get through? I was very much it piece when I was going through my battle because the most important people in my life have always known how important they are to me and how much I love them and I always tell my wife and I would tell my kids you know. Look at God forbid if something would happen to me you know you need to tell me that you know how much I love you and how much better my life has been with you in it you want and they all would say the same thing. I'll stop it stop talking. Nothing's going to happen. Stop but all day today. The big picture. Right like drags you know when you got when you got GM's and coaches calling and texting and telling you you know yeah this guy's day to day or the coaches made it while you know and the big picture we all day today really like all day right so for me Ray. That my my feelings me being at peace with the most important people in my life knew how I felt about them. That helped me get through like I've always told those people my my feelings and that helped me get through the toughest time of my life because look at if they told me. That's all you've had fifty one and a half years you've done all of this. You've had some great friends. You've had incredible family. You've done everything that you could imagine. But it's time I was okay with it. I was at peace because there was no stone unturned. There was no person out there. That hidden made an impact on me and my life and the most important thing in my life didn't know how I felt about them and that really helped me get through and what I like to say. Is that if you read the book and no Ray? There are any crayons with this book. Just for the record. I know you were dying. Krantz this book. Berry impressed agent but but I tell people I hope you do two things one is. I hope you laugh a little into is. I hope you'll love a little bit more and that helped me get through like it really did so ray. You know what I in when I reflected. I am more proud now of what I've been able to accomplish in my life personally. Most importantly my family my four kids and my wife my friends at my hockey career like like before I got sick. You Know I. I was very proud of what I've accomplished I was. I was proud but I think when I was sick. And and when you're sick like that you have enough quiet time. The last you a lifetime so I had a lot of time to reflect. I spent seventeen hours a day in our basement. I that's where I live for six months and I look back at my career and I feel more proud now in look back at what I accomplished in my hockey life as well as my personal and go you know what you know. What yeah you know. You were a pretty good player. You accomplished a lot and I don't think I ever looked at that it it. I looked at it that way before. I got sick so really if anything ray I think it reassured me I was in a great place personally professionally but then I had a time to reflect and I said you know what regardless of what some people may say. And that's what makes the world go round. I I did pretty good but I really don't I really don't I know it's long winded but I. There was important to talk about those two specific areas. Honestly Ray I don't I don't look. I don't look at things any differently. I really don't appreciate anything more so I think what it did with me. Being sick is it just reassured me that I was in a really good place before and now I know I'm in a really good place after and that's really. The heart of the book is that if I can have one person get through the day her help them get through their battle or to keep them away from having to go through what I did. Look it just doesn't have to be cancer. It could be anything I mean. Life is a battle. Look at it I was. I was bullied as a as a young kid. And as a hockey player I mean I had. It was in the hockey news. I mean it was an hockey news. Where a former coach of mine said you know? Jeeze Eddie Olczyk. Oh you know he'll he'll have a good. Nhl Career if he doesn't eat his way out of the NHL well. What's wrong with the hungry hockey player I ask and to? I'm chocolate guy right race. You know what's what's what's wrong with that but like look at if I would say that on. Tv DOWN HERE. In the states on NBC. Where if there was a player out there and I would critique him in and talk about his you know his weight or or you know I mean they would be taken look. It's different world today. I understand that but to think about that like that. It did bother me. You know but look I ended up playing sixteen years in a league and you know I mean look the rest is history but so a lot of that is in the book and and I think it's all ages. I really do. I think he could be relatable to to anybody. That obviously loves our game or is in a battle and I'm I'm very proud of that. And in Perry left. Go who drags you mentioned a little bit earlier. I mean he did a wonderful job a guy that I know extremely well from my days in Toronto and obviously he's a award winning horse racing writer as well so certainly that played into it. But I'm hoping that I'm hoping that people when they pick it up and read it They'll they'll laugh a little and the love a little bit more and if I could make an impact that way then it was well worth the sixteen months pen to paper of doing the book. Well no question. You've made an impact heads and we'll continue to do so. He is Eddie Olczyk. The book is beating the odds in hockey and in life. We've kept you long enough. Thank you for your honesty your courage Edsall and through it all an incredible sense of humor. What we love you guys Drake's and I look forward to I look forward to seeing you guys on the road. You guys do an amazing job. You're not only great friends of mine and people that I respect but you guys do an amazing job for our great game and there are so many there are so many great people in our game But we need more people in our game just like you guys so I appreciate you guys having me on your podcast and and what I read the when I read the promotion in the advertisement for the Ray Drake's or the dregs and ray podcast. It says you guys like to have a wee bit of fun we have A. We bit of fun today. That's what I wanted with that right. That's what I WANNA know Ed.

I'll we'll talk more about the book coming up in just a moment Ed Eddy. Oh but you and ray of so much history together right. I mean not just dating back to playing together back in the La days but it will be it in the broadcast circuit. Whatever in as there ever been a time where the two of you just weren't at one another or you know. Maybe Lafayette yourselves in the process.

Happy New Year Always get to be with you You know what Drake's I mean whether I saw Razor for the first time in the day or I would see him thirty seconds later. I I would. Just that's that's our relationship right. It's it's it's something that I want to say that I can't come that I can't Explained but it's just who we are Full of life. And I think that anytime I've been in a room with razor I'm always smiling. And that's a sign of a true friend and somebody that I respect As much as anybody that I've come across in my life let alone in a game a hockey so when you have somebody in your life that you respect and you love and you WanNa be around and That you know that that means the most so for me It you know like I said whether whether it's across the Room Rover two feet from me having dinner making fun of me. 'cause I'm a chocolate Guy You know we We've had that relationship so It's it's it's always GONNA be that way. It's never changing and You know we could be a church or we could be in the locker room. It's going to be quiet. Relationship is at so we're not there weren't many quiet played rides on those days back in. La Ray was there. I mean. Of course I love to fly. So you know Drake's we'd be taken off on an airplane and we hit a few look at every flight that I mean they must know that Eddie Olczyk is on the flight because we purposely fly in the air just to scare me. Okay I just telling you we turbulence and all of a sudden I hear. Oh it's a razor razor in in our good pal there. Arthur Louise Kevin Steven seagal. This isn't good. You better kiss your ass by. This is not good here is you know. What could you just shot up? Just just shut up. Leave me alone. I'll I'll have the I'll have the death grip on the seat in front of me. Let me sweat.

Just just fly the plane and then and then Rachel and so. This is not good here. I don't know the card game. We gotTa Stop The card game now. One thing you're leaving out Eddie was when you'd sit down no matter where Eddie was on the plane. Sit Down in this seat. Whatever it was and he'd strapped onto seatbelt super tight and and Kevin would from wherever he was. Oh yeah that's going to do a lot of good at so when this thing goes down.

"From Utah in partnership with tsn. Welcome to episode fifteen of the Ray and eggs hockey podcast. We've got Eddie Olczyk. And so is arguably one of the best guests that we're GonNa have ray on the podcast. This season Our inaugural season Clearly we tape this interview earlier in the day. We don't want to give too much away rate out of the gate but normally we kind of Balk. What twenty twenty. Five minute gas. Yeah I think we ended up talking heads off for the better part of forty forty five minutes just because he's a great guy but what a terrific message and story to tell What I thought. What's amazing is you'RE GONNA. You will find this interview. I'm almost certain absolutely hilarious And then incredibly poignant and For a good friend of both of ours man it was. It was really something to listen to to all our listeners. You'RE GONNA YOU'RE GONNA love Eddie Olczyk if you didn't know any before you're gonNA love Eddie now. Yeah great stuff coming up with Eddie Olczyk. We've got our throat punch candidates we've got ask Ray and dregs. We've got the usual staples here on the Ray androids hockey. Podcasts is is your microphone okay. I mean it feels like we've got technical difficulties here. Now you're in Winnipeg the time courting you didn't travel the microphone as destructed to travel with the. I forgot that it's on my desk now. You didn't have an adaptor to plug into your Mac pro but now you do have no no so. This is what this is where the real problem was. Unfortunately this was on the video that you guys were watching me. Look for after which I don't have which I don't need hokey because I thought the only way to plug in for the interview into my computer what's to have this adapter attached to my headphones. Okay yeah but I didn't need that. There's just a whole on the other side of the computer like your headphone Jack. But I'm an idiot and I didn't know it was there so it took me a while and I will say it only took me like three tries to find it and you maintain your level of temperament which was impressive You know there is a video element to this. And we're kind of dabbling with the video side of things here ray and dregs hockey podcast But our technical adviser Rob Grade. I I love how tries to coach you through things you know. He's a bit of a guru when it comes to this stuff you know what he needs to be needs to be able to invent some sort of pair of glasses which you're wearing right now as they look at you. That has all of this connected to your glasses so you remember the movie. The jerk years ago at the optic grab he became a millionaire with the and the and the dog's name wasn't tiny was something head to family show. We'll be careful with that but that's honestly because you travel as light as possible as we all do. I mean anybody who checks bag when they're going on a two three day trip you'll find yet. You're you're left for dead so you need the glasses with the microphone. Attached the adapter. That's also attach you just plug your glasses into your Mac pro and while I wouldn't forget anything like seriously. That microphone is sitting on my desk. It's not very helpful there. No An and cameras can pick up the game a little bit because she too is a great influence to the podcast. She gives us unbelievable feedback. Week by week. She's gotTa make sure that that microphone is tucked somewhere near belonging. So I say on. The list of her priorities might is about one hundred seventy third on her list. I understand that. Hey great feedback on Wayne. Gretzky interviewing episode fourteen. So what conversation backed by great guests. And we've got a surprise. You don't even know this So we've got a surprise guest for episode. Sixteen which I'm going to share with you later in the podcast before we get to the news of the day night the podcast which is the Zack Kassian suspension. I I'm going to..

"Uh-huh all right time for everyone's favorite part of the rain drake's hoc you. Podcast is throat punch. And Ray. I've I've got something special for you bulldogs all right now. The problem is I don't know how to shut it off. Hold on the part working on it right all. Come on. Shut it off series. Obviously that's the penalty box from the world junior hockey championship in the Czech Republic. And I've got a feeling that after hearing at one time. That was enough for us at fair. I can't stand that song. Now this is this is what people I don't think understand so we're doing two games a day. Most people were watching the Canadian Game. And maybe part of the other game though in the first game. Say there's ten penalties ten times. I hear that Song the Canadian game. There's seven penalties that seventeen times a day. Somebody thought that song was a great thing to play as a player. Any pressure filled time goes to the penalty box. It sounds like it reminded me of the old Benny Hill thing. Benny Hill theme get. I hated it. I couldn't even I. It would come on and you'd be like I can't even ignore it how much I dislike. Know what it was called. I think it was called Charlie Charlie something. I'd like to meet Charlie. Tell him to beat it. So Charlie gets a throat punch for sure what is going to take away from the throat punches as you were playing the song people can't see you were kind of dancing and shoulder shuffle gone. I'm not I can see. I can see why Holly thought you were a great idea back in the day. Oh what a smooth dancer. Hey you know how we met by the way It was actually I if you're old enough to appreciate this but in small town I'm GonNa say Canada but it was a Western candidates. Scotch when they used to bring in. When the ice was out in the summer they would bring in like a Roller Skating Company. Right and once a week. There'd be like a roller skating party in the Land Bird Arena Landaburu schedule. And that's where hall and I met for the first time I was like fourteen. Fifteen at the time admire skin-tight GW. Jeez on sweet ass. Like I mean really really nice and on top of that. I was wearing a Pittsburgh pirates. Remember the old Pittsburgh Pirates Hats. That were lawsuits. I mean like coke wouldn't want she's always human anyway. It wasn't my dancing. It was a masculinity on roller skates. Not Blades Skates these. Things had four wheels man. Did you have your own? No which is. It's a personal pet peeve of mine. That's the reason I don't go bowling and roller skating. Gross me out because I'm wearing somebody else's toe jam and I'm not digging it. Yeah I can bring your own socks to bowling. Oh yeah I wear socks but I guess they sprayed them. I don't know what they're sure. They did back in the eighties. Spreadable rights anyway. This is what happens when you bring pauly or tiny. I've always got a story right. And then they're usually ridiculous. That's good but my throat punch goes to the goal song because I couldn't stand it bugged me. I would give a secondary one to Corey. Perry for his play in the game. Yeah because it's funny. You can defend if you want but the stuff piles around the same guys all the time. It's coming from the side. There's only one place you're gonNA hit the player. And that's Ryan Ellis. Yeah there's only one place I didn't like that place. Oh did you think I mean five was the maximum without the in person hearing so I thought it would have been Alderman. Yes absolutely I just. I don't see how there was any other result that was going to happen from trying to make a hit right in that position. Well Yeah I'm not struggling with this but it's it's not as defined as I would like it to be normally the throat punch as you've described is it's individualized. It's either again. Your candidates Corey Perry for the five game suspension. Being perhaps a bit light for dirty play or the penalty box song. I get that I'm going with anyone who continues to oppose more three on three overtime and I get it be as I've talked to general managers about this coaches. There's at least a hint of concern that you're going to stress overplay your top dogs your top players because those are the players that are going to be out there in ending standard window of three on three but I've also talked to players and I've talked to goaltenders and there wouldn't be many who prefer the shootout over an extended three on three so my throat punch goes to anyone who says now we're good with what we have five minutes with three three overtime and leave the shoot up and in fairness that might go all the way up to the Commissioner's Office because Gary Bettman as always been a strong proponent and advocate of the shooter for me it's an individual's skills competition. I want and need more three on three. I don't I don't understand the on board with the debate over it. You know it's more ice time for your stars while if it is than us some other guys yeah right now because the the shootout. I liked it when it first came in I was on board with it. I'm like this well. Then all of a sudden there's too many games going to shootout and I'm like It's not that overtime. Toronto and Winnipeg last night was spectacular. Well they're not always spectacular right all the time they you know you don't get the best version you know you guys kind of. They're going to control the park. They're GONNA come back to center. Whatever it might be. I would much prefer that to me. That's closer to real hockey. Then you have to You know to the shadow and the reason that they will always look for an ending is because the ties were just they were unpalatable to the North American audience. Like in soccer. You have tie on the European tie it just finishes tie basketball they play. They don't go to a free throw shooting contest or three or three point shooting contest. They play overtime till it ends. I would prefer that too. I'm with you on this all right. We've got to ask Ray Andrey coming up. Do you WANNA play. You want me to play Charlie one more time Ray. Is we leave throat punch or should I just let that Rusk? I've I've almost had enough of Charlie You know what's really been interesting to drake's is how many people send it to me on twitter at me to the group that will be tweeting it at in the very near future perhaps as part of the limited promotional work that you do in supporting the rain breaks occupied cast on. These are all right. Let's go between the benches and we're gonNA start with a positive and then we'll shift over to somewhat of a negative story. Line your thoughts on the Columbus Blue Jackets and the Arizona coyotes if you look at the Columbus Blue Jackets radio months ago we're talking about Columbus. What is going on with the Blue Jackets? I mean at that point a month ago their way out of the playoffs and you know all of a sudden now. They're right the thick of things yet again yet. Well it's funny. I would say that you know we. Can you know we? It's pretty easy to to point out. What what amuses us at times from from John Tortorella when he snaps at the podium when he you know any is so fiery. The Guy can coach because their team was decimated in the offseason. They lost rate. Now are Tammy perine had sixty points New York. So they lose him they lose Brodsky. They've got to totally unproven. Goalies and Yoenis corpuscle. Who got hurt and Elvis? Moore's Lincoln's there forward group is just gutted with injury and yet now they've got fifty points on the season there. Ten One and four in their last fifteen games. They're they're at the second wildcard spot two points behind Philly two points behind Carolina I find it astounding and of course nobody really notices or none of us really pay much attention. But you're like damn they're doing unbelievable and I think it has to be knowledged Arizona's We talk it on earlier and talk to him. About what A. What a great job. He's done in the coyotes of done. This division is jammed up. You've got between first and fifth. You've got four point separating teams but Arizona's at the top of the heap. They got twenty five. Wins the both goalies on a lineup? Anti rant is hurt again and Darcy Camper got hurt now. It's down to goalie three Eden Hill and they went again talks. Done an amazing job out there but getting Taylor Hall adds another level to their team. Kessel start to warm up to the deal and they're not going to be an easy cure and some credit to John. The general manager. Who knows I mean? That's that's a coup that's a big deal and acquiring Taylor all may not be done between now and and the trade deadline. If you pay much attention to this I think you do you know it's always fun. When you see basketball players tee off show personality we see it in the NBA. Of course we see it and in the NFL to some degree on occasion. You see it from baseball players. Rarely do we see just pure personality from NHL Stars? There are a handful. There are a handful. I everytime Brad Marchand opens his mouth. I want to hear what he has to say. And and there are other players who are like that because they're not afraid of the media and they've figured out a while ago that you know what it's part of brand building is part of brand building now you can go to the extreme with. Pk Superman but then you can take it all the way back to Connor mcdavid. Who clearly doesn't doesn't love the camera. He knows that you know being captain of team matters and he has to speak with the media. I don't that he's. He's intimidated at all by media. I just don't get the sense of the enjoys doing it. Is that missed opportunity by? Nhl Players in failing to build their brand because they're not embracing the opportunity to give us more. Yeah it's it's a mess. It's a mess by the players in. It's a missed by the league. Now the league brings in the top players at the start of the year they have that media junket and they film a bunch of commercials and things that get shown throughout the year. Like I saw him You know the magician. That's doing all these tracks with the players. That's all done at the media tour. I really liked that stuff. Because you see the guys are laughing trying to figure it out now. Not Every interview has to be a grand slam but what happens too. Often I think is the players so either are uninterested or distrust what the interviews about. They don't give anything and it's not that you have to give up deep dark secret. Just pretend to be entered to to be interested watched Kesari cap and in the other day. Do over the boards interview before the game and I and I guess I am picking on him but I don't really mean to. It's just the latest one.

"Tony almost passed on us. I hope people remember but yeah that minor green in your resume. Actually my house through a super bowl party that we had and went light down and thankfully his wife a spur enough to realize that it was worse than just a headache and we went to the hospital and had hours of surgery and consequently you know he's fine but listen he was just all hurting soil You know ray never. He never cheated. The game at all. Practice played heart. They love the game and just I was so blessed to have him as a roommate. he was my last roommate after he couldn't go anymore for a while. I decided that was it. I was going to get my own. We're stuck at France today. Chat with them quite a bit and I always remember how good that line was in the Toronto series of Corey Mellon Mike Donald. Tony Granato they got the game winning goal or they put us up for two three in that game seven But nobody plays more hundred more desire and and pound for pound the toughest guy that ever played with. Just the pleasure play with excellent Gretz. We WanNA thank you for joining us and taking a good junkier day away to to be part of the ranger eggs hockey podcasts. Thanks for doing this great day. Thanks guys thanks wing. Man Ray number of stories there that I hadn't heard before coming from the great one wing. Gretzky we we. We spent the better part of probably twenty four twenty five. Maybe twenty six minutes talking to this guy. We could've talked for hours because when you when you hear wing tell the stories you can you can hear you can almost feel the passion that comes out of the history of his game. I'm I'm most amazed with with the detail that he watches a play with these breaking down mcdavid goal and and of course the way that he played but he talks through establishing a new frontier in the in the southern United States. But he's given credit to everybody else you know. It's always been a trademark of him. His humble he is. I'm just astounded for as much as Wayne does for our league. There would be no end to the asks for him. What an ambassador for the sport that he is and can be It's it's really remarkable. I I loved listen to them. Tell the stories that he did. Did you appreciate the Audio Cameo from tiny? The ran drugs hockey on ASCA. Pretty clear that tiny runs at home. So as we're recording the the interview I've got a dog walking service. Normally they just opened the door and tiny goes running but apparently it wasn't the usual dog Walker so there was a stranger at the door. Hence the outburst from tiny the RENDERINGS MASCOT. I ninety with not having any of that. No luck we We need to FAG. Nobody right I I'm pretty sure it was warm. Ish in Astravo was it or or did you require the novus jacket. No no I needed it It was warm ish and then all of a sudden the wind hit and it was cold. So if if I didn't have it I would have been caught in a bad way. Warm comfortable The jacket is fantastic. It looks good to start with. But it's great if it looks good and it doesn't keep you warm doesn't do it. It's supposed to do Minorities jacket was hit it out of the park again over and Estrada the and everything you've just said applies to notice and this podcast really is about novus because early in the podcast. We talked about you doing laundry and you talked about just talked about how windy it was in the Czech Republic. All novus jackets are wind. Proof right are you probably felt that you experienced that Czech Republic they're breathable and perhaps just as important as any of that their home so you can just fire that thing right back into the clothes washing machine. What do they call them? The washing machine. I had to close watch. What we I'm like. What are you four is?

"Was probably becoming predictable and then when the players start to smell it then you really have to make a move. You like they were traveling. When the heroics of this effort came into play in Toronto Connor mcdavid goal versus the Toronto. Maple leaves on Monday. I know you've seen it obviously multiple times. I mean when you see once you've got to watch it a dozen times just to to make sense of what connor mcdavid did Morgan Riley and the impact. He finishes in in scoring an unbelievable unbelievable goal. You know we use goal of the year as as Cliche but I mean this one has to be an early. Favourite candidate is hitting the hot for two thousand twenty. I assume something might be able to challenge it but the sheer brilliance of what he did at the speed he did against the defenseman. That is a hell of a player and Morgan Riley. Now you put it all together and I mean it was. It was a thing of beauty it really was and I did watch it. I was on the plane I saw you know on on twitter and then I watched it again and then I watched it at home and like one of the things I was most terrified of in the NHL was getting a pass. And then having a one on one against the defenseman. Because I knew I could never beat him. No matter who was back there was no chance that I was going to be able to get around this guy. And then you got the whole rink looking at you like this kind of embarrassing. Because I can't get by the guy that guys were good and I can't get by him. That's not my game and he took it and just undressed riley like it was spectacular. I mean the edge work this. Yeah the deception. It was all there is. It was a thing of beauty. His level of confidence mirrors his athleticism and creativity. I think that's why I expect the unexpected now and as as glorious as that goal was and it probably will be the the goal of the year. I'm waiting for the next one because I know there's going to be a next one from Connor mcdavid. I. I can't debate it. I just I'm trying to figure out how could look if a better his ability to go super fast in one direction and then changed. Directions without losing speed is astounding. I would say is I think about the changes in the game with the players. That ability across the board is has grown more and more to the player's ability to change direction on their edges without losing speed. We couldn't do that. We could change directions but it took a lot lot more time than this. I mean that that stuff is broken. Thinking of the guys I think a Jack Eichel how he changes directions right like these. You can go across that nate McKinnon like then of course Mick Davids the. It's the prime. He's he's number one at at all. Well Wayne Gretzky perfect seat in Toronto. Watching that game no question. He was out of his seat in celebration in the Mcdavid goal he`ll. He'll join us on the rain rigs hockey podcast. Coming up shortly. speaking of greatness. And you know it's it's a category that we have to put mcdavid in now. Obviously Wayne Gretzky for many top of the list. Alexander Ovechkin Ray. Six hundred eighty four goals scored two against the Ottawa. Senators in our wrote of the sense Earlier in the week. I mean it's conceivable now tied for eleventh. All Time in goals was six hundred. Eighty four with James Salani. It is conceivable is it. Not that he could. He could catch Gretzky's eight hundred ninety four. Now there's a two hundred ten goal gap as we're recording the podcast here. Who which isn't chump change by any means. But are you a believer that it could be done? He's thirty four or do you just get. It's it's an impossibility at this stage. I don't think it's an impossibility in the reason I don't is because obese game in my opinion will age pretty well because he'll still be able to get to the front of the net not as often but he's still going to wait two hundred and thirty pounds. He's still going to be a horse. He's going to get in there. You can stand there like a statue in the left circle and score ten to twelve goals. A year can score thirty year. Thirty five goals a year. We have another fifty goal year. Pass this one in. Because he's GonNa need a year or two. That are big ears. Yeah so what does he have now? Does he have twenty nine. Twenty eight something like that. Yeah we don't want to say twenty six. That sounds right. I think he was twenty four going into that Ottawa game. So is going to be near fifty again you know. Can he do it again? One more time that that's going to be critical to whether he can score of these two hundred ten goals you know. He's going to have to have one big year. He's going to have to average near thirty five goals a year. It's possible I hope he gets close and I think Wayne would hope gets close to because the excitement for the game would be astounding like the records that could be challenged. Just think the most all time goals that that would be amazing. Now Wayne is both most humble person. You can come across but I would never cheer for anybody to break my record away. Plus Stamkos has as four hundred nine plus. Now he's all right right and I saw. Her name was was was an achievement. No question yeah. I saw this thing like He was You know it was quite a milestone for him you know. He was really excited about passing it. I was hoping it was going to go into a six year slump. Be Honest with you. I'm sure you were by the way one thing about lovie because I think he's GonNa get close. I'd like you'll be in the ballpark anyway. Put it that way whether he gets there or not. I guess is is. It's you know we'll we'll we'll find out but it's astounding. He did this. You know the the number of goals he's got to tie Salani. That's three hundred less games. I know and also think about three hundred less games. Amazing what he's done well and that's six hundred and eighty four goals in eleven hundred twenty nine games and again just as a as a point of Reference Wayne Gretzky scored eight hundred ninety four goals in fourteen hundred and eighty seven. Nhl Game Salt provided over. You can stay healthy. Obviously you know we're saying he's got a chance Let's kick over the Montreal Canadians. Wrap up top five rape. They lost to the Detroit Red Wings on Tuesday. Seven-game winless earlier. This season are seven-game winless. Now as we're recording earlier this season they went through an eight game winless stretch. They've now lost to the Detroit Red Wings three times this year. They could miss the playoffs for the fourth time in five years can can you make sense of this because the market in Montreal is getting warm right now and starting to point fingers and call out names? Well I can make some sense of it on a couple of things that that really are tied together. Montreal doesn't have offense that's GONNA come from explosive players guys that can change the game. Standalone player you know. Their offense has to be across the board right. It has to be depth. It has to be one through four lines. They have to play really near the top of their capabilities to be a successful team while Joel. Armenia has had a fantastic area thirteen goals last year. Got Eleven now. And then he's out along with Brendan Gallagher you know. They're they're top score along with Paul Byron along with Jonathan Drouin. Who had been playing terrific hockey? So you ask any team or look at any team. They take four of their top nine. Four words out of the lineup. They got problems. If you don't have guys that can carry your team while then you got even bigger problems. That's kind of where Montreal is offensively more Berge and the GM said look. We want to stay in the race until the end of the month and we get healthy. I don't even know if they're in the race. Still no you know and so we can look at the immediate and then if you go back and take a look at their draft choices in the first round only from two thousand nine to two thousand fourteen with the trade of Michael McCarron Nashville. Six straight first round picks and they don't have anything for it not so good and those those guys are between twenty eight or twenty nine and twenty two at this point like. That's that's safe. Four of those six picks work you know and there's Nikita sure back and Louis Leblanc back in the day and Michael mccaren you know or those are three of them and they just Jared tenacity is another. They just haven't worked for them and they're paying the price for that So would you be among the chorus of preaching patients or do you think? Berge has to step up even as difficult as it is to make meaningful trades in season. It can be done. Otherwise have done it. He's done it. Would you be patient and allow the Montreal Canadians to meander forward? Missed the playoffs again. And do their work in the off season. Or would you be one would be preaching for Change at the state why? I don't think they can make anything happen right now. That will change the season. The only way I'd make a significant move now as if it if it has benefit going forward the problem Montreal has talked about the first round. Picks they've got some really good young talent and then they carry price Shea Weber in the middle part of that is really where the issue start to sit so. I don't know if you've ever tried to do two things at the same time. It never works no right. You're looking for your keys in your conversation. Now you forget what you're talking about is you're looking for your keys or you go to pick up your keys. And you forget the conversation when you straddle the fence you can catch yourself right in the middle do exactly. And that's where they are. They've got these. You know these stud older players in price who by the way has been not even average this year. His statistics are not even average and Shea Weber had a fantastic year. You've got them at one end of the roster then you've got a bunch of young guys that just doesn't work. They're trying to get younger and better. And then they've got these there twenty million dollars tied up in two players. I don't know how you make a meaningful trade now to fix that but getting into the draft. They've got to use some of their cap space. They could take players on that. Other teams are looking to create cap space with. Yeah you might be able to get high price player from somewhere else because they can afford it rather teams can't do that good stuff rape. We've got Wayne Gretzky. The great one coming up on the Rangers Hockey podcast. And of course a little bit later a weekly staple throat punch ask gray and grades.

"New Year everyone and welcome to our first episode. Two Thousand Twenty. It is episode fourteen of the Ray and rigs hockey podcast. Darren Gregor along with Rape Ferraro. Rare you well rested I I mean. I'm I'm watching on twitter this week. You're back from the Czech Republic. You're back in the NHL Grind. But YOU'RE GETTING UP TO FORTY FIVE. Am Pacific. I mean clearly clearly. You're traveling your body clock aren't meshing right now. No happy New Year Drake's to you and to all our listeners. Hope everybody's got the nice start out to the new year. I am not even close to being on time. So yesterday. Today is. I believe Thursday. So yeah it was. Wednesday is up to forty five. What do you do it to forty five in the morning? I'm better be sleeping on the day. I do a lot of things at two forty five. Imagine but you weren't you haven't gone to bed yet. No no so. I did a couple of loads of laundry my expenses and book my travel for into the end of March so I was very productive at six o'clock. My head hit my desk like a stone and slipped till eight when the kids got up. And we're ready for school so I'm limping along but no I'm I'm getting there. I'm getting well look. We had Cami on the podcast not that long ago and she described meticulous and sensitive. You are to the cleanliness of your environment and I've witnessed this firsthand traveling with you and obviously sees on a day to day basis in your home but let's back up here a little bit. I share in your appreciation and O'Kane of doing laundry because to me. Laundry is like a fake chore. It seems like you're accomplishing a lot. With very little effort you throw the clothes in there now. You don't even have to worry so much about whites and darks and all that just because all of that and then you let them dry but I I where grow weary of doing laundry is the folding part of things and and you know if one sock doesn't match on pissed off like who would do that. Put both socks in the hamper. And let's get let's get going with okay so I don't mind the folding I I like it to me. It's like it is fake work. It's not like it's hard No. I'm not washing the clothes like my grandmother used to do like. I just pitched him in a machine and I throw them into the other one. The the socks thing he drags you are. You're a few steps in front of me. Okay I've got a thirteen and a ten year old. The chances that those socks all get into the dirty clothes is about zero percent. My favorite is when they clump them up in a ball and throw them in so they all I either. So that's my that bugs me and could anybody throw a shirt in? That's not inside out now that that's not happening so anyways. I like the. I like knocking off all the laundry. I like it clean but I just I go into back. I turn the music on like we're the laundry is and music and folk laundry. Not that's there you go so so looking at value in episode fourteen. We're we're now presenting laundry tips on the podcast. Do not separate anything. It's a waste of time and goes in together. Do not dry your wife's jeans and then she's really sour at you. Because what are you doing all? That's bad news. I get strict instructions when it comes to my wife or my daughter's clothing. Don't dry this or better yet. If you're drying for an hour stopping at thirty and make sure that you hanging so that. I'm going to do that all right. I'm telling you when I push starting the next time I go back. There is what I hear the thing. Go off all right. Talk about kicking off two thousand twenty with a mega guest. Wayne Gretzky the great one is going to join. Us later in episode fourteen. I this guy need as me for a lottery isn't a hockey aside. But he pops up and curious places and he does a ton of travel and it's not all hockey related travel specific to the oilers obviously is son-in-law Dustin Johnson kind of a big deal on the PGA tour. So you'll participate in that. But he's kind enough. Ray Takes fifteen twenty minutes to join us later in the PODCAST NOT GONNA lie. Get Nine on. The podcast is twelve better efforts. I would say I would say I would say so. It is it is amazing to me. How certain athletes and certain sports transcend time because there? There's a period of time when an athlete retires. Now they're still really relevant because everybody remembers them but now you're you get a generation or two away from their playing days. Gretz retired in right around two thousand right. Nineteen Ninety nine nine now. So it's twenty years so anybody. That is twenty five years or twenty eight years old or younger. They have no real recollection other than highlights our old gout. That's on of the brilliance. That Gretz had we talked yet. They know him and then we could talk about this later. But I I. I know you on on twitter earlier. We're of course all in all of the congregated goal in Toronto on on Monday. And we'll talk about that later in the show as well coming up as part of our top five items as a matter of fact but then someone tweeted something about video of Mariel Bugle and it must've been obviously back in the nineties eighties whenever it was but he was getting hooked and hacked and everything from his defensive line pretty much through threes homes and he's still scores a goal of. What would amuse me about? That was all of the backlash that we see. And we hear about almost on a game by game basis for those who are connor mcdavid fans and I think we all are obviously about how he's you know obstructed on a shift by shift basis that it's not even close. Who's watched that video if you haven't seen it Ivory tweeted it. You could find it my twitter account. Just watch it and please note at no time. Did an officials hand to go in the air so I tweeted out. There were six hooks on this play and Andre Kole. Petar answered decide. You missed to hold as well. It was it was A. It's an amazing piece of video. Know what I do remember dregs about that about that time when Mario complained about all the hooking and holding he actually was criticized. Pretty roundly furthering complainer. Now you look at it and you go well. No wonder at the time. We didn't even notice. That was just the way the game was but he was like. This is ridiculous and he was more than right. And it's proven to be right because the game has changed so much that the video is fantastic by two referees. Imagine the number of goals. Mario would've scored Wayne. Gretzky finished his career with eight hundred. Ninety four I mean if the game were called the same way you would have scored six hundred goals. Gretzky widow scored over a thousand. I mean and Mary Likewise Mary would have been literally unstoppable on the six foot or yeah with that ability. Just think of him. Eric Lindros in today's game. How were you gonNA stop them? Cau- Mario's at a different level but Lindros injuries aside. Who is going to stop him? You wouldn't you just. You just couldn't know all right. We've got plenty coming up on the podcasts or throat punch candidates or warmed up teed up ready to fly. We'll take you into the segment ask Ray and dregs. And we'll also announce her first half winner of the rate and Greg's hockey fantasy pool. Now you're just back from the Czech Republic. Tell me if I'm wrong here. The gold medal game between Canada and Russia has to be has to be up there among a highlight game. That you've called to this point of your broadcast career. I would say in the top few that I've done to them. Gold Medal Games. One of them was the other day when Canada down three one in the third period came back to to win against Russia. The other would have been twenty fifteen Canada Russia gold medal game. Was this six five wild crazy thing in Toronto unbelievable and what I what really connected me to that game dregs was. I was between the benches for this last one. I was up top like you could see these kids just like emotional swings in the game. It was just amazing. This tournament gets better and better More and more people watched we had over four million people watch on tsn and rds. And that's a game from Europe. That was eleven o'clock in the morning back here in Canada On against some pretty heavy traffic on. Nfl playoff weekend and things. But the game just seems to draw more and more people in I can't remember a better final in Europe that that we've gotten to call. It was amazing. I want your thought on travel experience coming back because that that always amuses me and our podcast listeners. But I'm feeling a little testy but feisty today so maybe we'll we'll leave the European experience with this. I I give him noise when media or fans start the tournament. And you can you. It's like clockwork every year. Where they're like Oh. Dsm puts too much pressure on these young boys. You know this is all about TV. This is all about ratings. I mean these kids would give anything to make this team and to have the opportunity to win a gold medal for their country. Of course there's pressure but isn't there pressure on an eighteen. Nineteen twenty year old Blair in playing in in the Memorial Cup or in the playoffs or any big game in college junior etcetera. I mean do you get is annoyed by The the negativity that comes prior to this. Turn on the so-called pressure resided. Of course I do. I mean now that I. I've done the tournament nine times. I'm certainly more sensitive to it. More sensitive to the criticism that as you say is like clockwork when the tournament starts funny. Part is most of the people that are bitching about the tournament. They're watching it so if it so offensive to them. Don't watch now. The tournament is fantastic. It these kids play their hearts out. They get a chance to to wear their country's flag on their chest and for many of them a good many of them. These are the biggest most important games that they will ever in their lives. I remember a goalie. Dennis God la the first place for Slovakia at.
