"For the Hockey Hall of fame this year. And Daniel offered in my part of the world would be everybody's choice to get in. Maybe in your part of the world, it would be Kevin Low I. Don't know but He's not listening to surly listed as the as the guy so the candidates this year. Daniel offered Sinn. Rod brindamour and these are in relatively. Alphabetical. Order Patrick. The devils the Oh flurry Sergei Gonchar Marian Hossa Jerome Again La Curtis Joseph. Kevin, Lowe. Alex Mogilny, Pierre Turgeon Doug Wilson those other very biggest. Names that are eligible There are others. But anybody in there. Really grab you. Jim You know I'm biased, but I think it's I think Kevin Law. Get in when I read was reading the profile? Kevin is a friend of mine. Six Stanley Cups. Okay seven time all star something like that. I think Kevin's in. For sure. I don't think Jeremy. What do you think? I say yes I'm Kevin. I don't think so based on the if you're asking me to pick the top four, I don't have Kevin Lowe in my top folk. I. Do I think McGill Nail? Get in unless he did last year I. Don't I don't know he didn't get any last year? No, no, he's still there he. He played nine hundred ninety games. And Mcginley Cup? And let's see. They. got a gold medal with the Soviet, Union and Certainly mogilny in that discussion for sure. Well actually I've got to stick to my own thing I'm GONNA go with anyone Steve Who's won a Stanley Cup this year? Did this pressure on the hall with all this discussion that? You got to win a cup to get in. You believe that. I I believe it should be the way. I believe it should be the way. Well. That certainly gives Kevin. Law Leg up because six Stanley Cups. Nobody I think that's eligible highs that many. Yeah I mean. That's what it's all about winning a Stanley Cup. Now I'm the same guy who said they should have a muck or award. Guys who guys like fourth liners men played for fifteen years. You know in the NHL but. Last year would be an example of that Yup. So out of your list, Steve, if there's if there's four guys with one cups, that's why I'm picking. But I don't. Rod Brindamour Shack Patrick Eliash the Oh flurry. Sergei Gone Shar. With Pittsburgh. Marian Hosa when it three times Gerald McGinley never one, but he's the one slam dunk that I've got. I think that's guy. He's by to me. He's a first ballot hall of Famer. He's eligible for the first time here. And I think he gets in right away. Kahlo of course is six cups. Alex Mogilny has a couple of the devils. As I mentioned in. No no cups for Pierre Turgeon not ups for Doug Wilson, so you have more than four guys with copses my point. Okay so he can win. That Way So I can, but I gotTA eliminate. Some guys who do have a company can't be might four so. Did you say mobility did win a cup or not, he did. Okay I'm going with Kevin Law Mogilny. Theo fleury. and. If you? WanNa Pick Rod brindamour. He did he cafe Carolina. There's my for. Okay. Well. I'm going to go. Let's see I. Think for sure it'll be jerome again. La that much I know, everybody else everybody else. I'm uncertain of them going. Daniel Alfredsson does fourth year and. It's. They had look at him. You look at the decade of two thousand to two thousand nine. In that decade. He was the NHL S- third leading score. So I got him. I'm GONNA fire Theo. Fleury like you. I think that's a that's a guy and AG. Jackie back talked about this today and kind of talk me into the O. Fleury think of the adversity, the two major bits of adversity for Theo, fleury. Starter out of the gate body size. He played at a time when there weren't that. Many small guys theo fleury would come into the league now and thrive. The weights played now right, but he came into the league when guys like Eric, Lindros were prowling around out there, it was a big man's game, and he was phenomenal, so and he got to play for team, Canada he won a gold medal. He won a Stanley in his very first year in the league, and was a contributor as a rookie and had over thousand points. On top of that, he he the inspirational story that he was. Overcoming now had his issues along the way, but still overcoming to get to the NHL. After the whole Graham James thing right right so the fact that he had to deal with that is is a young man in his formative years, and to go on, and have the career had he had obviously many demons and many bad moments, dark moments in the League but. Just when you think about how he was set up that that. Ninety nine times out of one hundred. That is not a guy that's going to the NHL. Let alone had the kind of career. He did so just based on the inspiration that I. Take from that Guy I think he. It's time that he got in So there's there's three and I'm going to close it out. I mean Alex Mogilny Man. That's. That's a tough one to to overlook Doug Wilson to so good I'm going to go with I'll probably throw marion hosts and their wholesome okay. I mean three Time Cup champion love the player bit of a homer bias granted. Because, he was so good with the sans wish he'd had his whole career here, but terrific career for sure, so that's my. That's the four I would pick. I think you're down. I think you're down forty, but you paid me. I'm not down. No or your? No, I'm just you know it might have been more. I know one fifty or one hundred off, you forget. For Bragging Rights Sake. I am down. Yes, yeah, you're okay so. We'll throw a double Saalbach on there. Okay. Twenty, you don't saw box TV.

How Zamboni Driver Helped Carolina Hurricanes Win Big Game
"We can't begin the show without talking about the biggest story to hit hockey since what out. Foster Scott Foster. Probably the Glorious Song I don't know so. What was the last hockey story to get on the today? Show Leyla Anderson. Probably and you know what's interesting about it to me. I mentioned Scott Foster. Is that happened two years ago and one of the more interesting things the way he handled in the blackhawks handle is he got all these requests. He was asked to go on Jimmy Kimmel and the Today Show People magazine. And he turned it all down because he wanted to be about the franchise throat. Meanwhile Dave Ayers technically property of the Carolina Hurricanes Right now. We know they don't say Tom. I'm going to rename top golf. Airs Ball David Errors. Of course is the forty two year old goalie from Whitby Ontario pro previously experienced in the Allan Cup Hockey League where he played for the Norwood Vipers. For Eight Games He was the is the Zamboni Goal Zamboni driver for the Toronto Police H. L. Affiliate the Toronto Marlies He became just the third emergency goaltender in the modern era to play in the NHL when he went out and played for the Carolina Hurricanes against the Toronto Maple leafs on Saturday evening the marlies Zamboni driver playing for the enemy and You know he beat the leafs as everybody knows but are you surprised that the like the hurricanes if there was any team in the league where I was like. This is a team that could play that. Well in front of Amateur goaltender like maybe Dallas would be the number one. Maybe the islanders would be just by the systems they play but Carolina basically saying you. Don't get the PUCK ANYMORE TO THE TORONTO. Maple leafs was something. That was entirely predictable in this. In this scenario my opinion I don't think the hurricanes got enough credit for this guy getting the win one hundred even like after the Game Rod. Rod brindamour comes into the locker room. Talk about how the team played in front of that guy for that guy. Four David eyres eight. Which is an incredible thing. And you know what I was just talking about. Who Remembering when his team had a goalie. That didn't show up. She showed up late so they they had to play six on five. Like we couldn't score a goal on the empty night. Even I mean it's amazing. How the mind works how. The effort level works in that Carolina Hurricanes team. You can't say enough about. I Mean David. Eyres only had eight eight eight saves on ten shots. I mean you know you put a lot of guys in the net with a a modicum of of skill In the position and have that performance in front of them. They're going to have some success so all the credit to him for stepping in there and getting in front of pox but man that I mean Jake Gardner was just laying out out there. I mean it was unbelievable to watch imagine if Michael Hutchinson head that Michael Hutchinson now property of the Colorado Avalanche. Because of course we're going to talk about the trade deadline. But you know I think the reason why this story resonates with so many people is that in the little child and all of us. It's the dream of a fairytale at forty two years old. He's the second oldest player ever to make his. Nhl Debut. And I guess just to put a tie on this as we get into the trade deadline talk. Think BACK TO MEETING SCOTT. Foster one year after his big day where he was the accountant. Ben Saved what was it? Fourteen minutes of scoreless hockey for the Chicago Blackhawks against the then mighty would peg jets and you know he didn't do any interviews for a year and he said at one point. I called it the incident and I had to tell myself just because you take advantage of an opportunity doesn't mean you can enjoy it so I'm just glad that day there is enjoying and enduring with all of us because we all seem to be enjoying it
How does hockey reckon with an abusive power structure?
"By the time you finish listening to this podcast. It's likely there will be more stories out there about abusive hockey coaches right now as we are recording this and as you're listening to it. The sport is facing a reckoning. It began with the toppling of one of the biggest domino's in the game. Mike Babcock out as coach of the Toronto Maple leafs tonight. Every mounting losses position became more and more tenuous and tonight his reign lean over. leafs nation is over. Mike Babcock was fired by the Toronto. Maple leafs for the same reason. Tons of hockey coaches have been fired before him. His team was underachieving. He might have been a bigger name than those other coaches but still not unusual then. The story started during the two thousand sixteen seventeen season. Mitch Moore had a private meeting with Mike Babcock and the coach asked then rookie to list the players on the team from Best Work Catholic to worst martyr complied not realizing that that talk within show his list to some of the players ranked the lowest and not long after that it became clear. The stories weren't just about Mike Babcock. Major allegations made against Calgary flames head coach. Bill Peters a former. NHL Her Chemo Lou. who spend spend some time with the flames in the early part of this decade calling for his alleged use of racial slurs while they were both part of the Chicago Blackhawks Organization now players ears are saying publicly things that used to be kept behind closed doors at all cost and the NHL in almost every league below it is realizing that it has a problem problem or more accurately that it has had a problem for quite some time? Now the question is what happens next. What did they do about it? What changes changes in the leafs? They've been playing a lot better since they fired the guy who humiliated one of their best players who thought I'm Jordan Heath Rawlings. This is the big story. Jeff Blair is a senior writer at sports net dot CA. He is the CO host of writer's block on Sports Net. Five ninety fan every day. He has covered a lot of dressing rooms ends and locker rooms throughout his career. Hey Jeff how you doing short. I'm doing well you've You've covered a lot of dressing rooms and locker rooms over the years I was. I was thinking about this the other day when the stuff happened with the Chemo. Lou and Bill Peters out of thinking to myself. I ever seen a locker room. I thought something nothing really poisonous and happen. And I think because unbalanced I spent more time around baseball clubhouses than anything else and initially when I started reporting Winnipeg CFL locker rooms is kind of a little different than hockey. I mean baseball. There have been African American players. There've there've been Latino players in baseball has its issues but it's nothing to go on a clubhouse now and see that the white players are in the minority I mean that's just the way it is and the NFL. When I covered it's the same thing and I don't remember any relationship with a manager or coach or a team I thought was particularly toxic? I mean they're examples of tone deafness. But what I think happens more often than not in a lot of these situations is just the manager coach. Whatever you WANNA call it becomes tone-deaf two things? Well why don't you start then by explaining how we got here where it started with Mike. Babcock in the leafs. Yeah there's a couple of things first of all. I'm a little concerned that people are sort word of mixing. Mike Babcock not you but people in general people were kind of going all Mike Babcock and then Bill Peters. Because here's the thing Mike Babcock seems to have tried cried some Caveman Sports Psychology on Mitch. Martyr So tell us about that. Mitch Monitor the first year. The story is now now that everybody's confirmed Mike. Babcock wanted him to work harder. So Mike Babcock called them into his office and said list your teammates in terms of hardest working to least hardworking. And tell me where you'd put Yourself Yourself Mitch. Marna with coach wants to do this so he goes ahead and does that and Somehow and I I don't know when it came out but somehow Mike Babcock doc essentially went to some of the guys that were below martyring. Say Mitch thanks. She works harder than you. You know this guy's dog in it right now and he thinks that works harder than you and the best line out of the Whole Story and God love Mitch. Martin but the best line of the whole story's Mitch Marnie just kind of shrugging and going nobody took it seriously right. You know it's like that's just that's just babs so I mean their stories. You know you can go. God stories about would coaches used to do for motivating players or trying to catch players airs. I Never Scotty Bowman Scotty. Bowman got tired of his team's missing curfew. So Scotty Bowman would go down. And I can't remember which city this went down to the front desk of the hotel and I think curfew was midnight. Went Down to the front desk of the Hotel at eleven thirty gave a stick to the dorm and said do me a favor when the guys come in get them to sign the stick and we'll we're going to auction off to charity so the next day Scott he goes into the locker eight. These are all the guys that showed up after midnight. Their names are on the stick so I mean stuff like that is you know. That's all part of an old school. Coaching you mentality. Whatever you think of it? Yeah it's and I mean at the heart of the the coach player relationship and this and this is why we'll talk specifically about. Bill Peterson Chemo. Lucas IT'S A. It's a point I think people are missing. I mean at the heart of a coach player relationship. It's a power relationship. I'm the coach. I control the most important part of your career. I control your time I control. How many starts you're gonNA make I control? Will how many at bats you're going to get I control if you're going to be coming in the ninth inning. I control if you're going to start back to back games like Then I control. You're earning power. This is sort of at the route. That's the traditional relations traditional relationship. Is that changing it is in the NHL. I find this fascinating because the four major sports in North America all right now if you look at sort of the players relationship to to power in the game the NBA players leak. It just is players are getting lots of money They make a a lot of money from shoe deals so they're comfortable financially outside of what they're earning contract like Shaquille O'Neal didn't spend any money he made playing basketball. He invested all all he lived off. His shoe deals coaches have no power over anybody in the NBA the NFL's you know you're disposable piece of meat. There's no such thing as guaranteed contract. Baseball's always had a very very strong players association. It's Kinda splintered now and I think we're kind of in an every man for himself air but what's happened in hockey is there has been an an influx of really talented really young players and because of the way the NHL 's collective bargaining agreement is setup. You Essentially Ashley. Now have a bunch of guys who were twenty two twenty three or twenty four making eight million dollars a year under contract for five six or seven years and that's the biggest difference to me. Is that players always used to make more than the coach and this is specifically the NHL players always used to make more than the coach. But they've got more term So if you're Mike Babcock and you've got three years left on your contract you've got Mitch Monitor. He's got six years left. He's making ten and a half million dollars a year. How do you? How do you motivate that? How do you manage them? It would take us. Ice Type. Doesn't matter to him take two minutes ice time away from me. I'm getting ten million dollars a year and by the way I got a job here for years down the road and you say that so hockey ocoee more than any other sport I think is is going through. This and hockey is going to half the data and and and the coaches are going to have to. The players aren't going to have to adapt. The coaches are going to have to debt. And this this gets the Bill Peter Situation and and why I think this is particularly vile you know first of all. I mean there's no statute of limitations and racism so I've heard people will make the case. Well he said this ten years ago three organizations ago he wasn't even with the flames. You have somebody claiming that he. He used the N.. Word that he used a racial epithet. You have that player's teammates backing you up. You have subsequent you have players coming out. Who played for Bill? Peterson Peterson Carolina. Saying hey he physically abused me. You have players coming out and saying yeah not only did he. Physically abused Rod brindamour. Not only did he did. He physically abused guys. But you've got player saying oh by the way we spoke. The Ron Francis who was general manager the team at the time and he didn't do anything wrong. There was something but the Akeem loose. The situation is really. I find it really bothersome. Because what was he supposed to do. You know these guys are playing in the American Hockey League They're not making a lot of money. Bill Peters when he was coaching that team the Rockford ice hawks. He held the future in his hands. so if you're a guy like a chemo Lou and you're trying to establish yourself or you're trying to get your career going going to your general manager and writing out your head. Coaches racist is probably not not a good career. Move and I think more than anything else. What this says is that at that time? Ten years ago that organization Chicago Blackhawks. There wasn't a structure in place. I mean I'm not gonNA say that guys don't yell things at each other in the locker room or on the ice and we we know they do. We know that racial epithets unfortunately are still a part of the sort of the on Ice Onfield Dialogue and sports. I don't think this happens now though like if we were rewinding this Chemo Lou had been Ah. I don't think that happens. 'cause he reports to somebody or he goes on social media then and it's taken care of but it bothers me that people are saying that some people are saying well you know ten years ago and nobody else stood up. It's people have to understand Dan that again. This gets to that that power relationship between the player and the coach. There's no way the player could you know what are you GonNa do. You're going to sacrifice your long term financial future because of this. I mean I'm not. I'm not saying that means. Bill Peters is right but hockey I think more than any other more than any other sport just by the the nature of how players are developed. Kids leave home. Kids go to town cities. They're billeted with people dependent on the structure. They are dependent on on the power structure there absolutely dependent on the power structure. And I think maybe that's what has created this culture around hockey the the NHL is really really trying. I think to find a way and I mean the NHL in general teams coaches are trying to find a way to deal with this the new age the players the the ultimate lesson the lesson from hopefully for this whole thing with Bill Peters is that there has to be every organization has to look at itself often say do we have the structures in

"And as I say, more confident really stronger and more formidable so whoever ends up in the Stanley Cup final not only has to play more games. And the blues shark theories is really physical as well. So it takes a toll, regardless of which TV is they've had to play so deepen series game sevens. And so the Bruins will have this extended break, which I really think is a benefit to veterans, maybe not as much to younger guys, who. That they don't to the same pounding on their body, but their bodies recovered a little more quickly, and there might be some nerves. You're sitting around you're waiting you'd rather. Get on the ice and get and get back to playing but a lot of that's mental and they've got great resources in leadership to draw on in their in their locker room. And so I don't worry about the Bruins at all having this time off. They outscored the canes seventeen to five in four games. So this is it's the right formula the perfect formula for the Bruins to this point where the red hot goalie and your top line that's really productive. But other guys who are contributing as well as for the hurricanes this one hurts, obviously, to get swept in the east finals, and to feel like you didn't take advantage of your opportunities. I mean that's that's one that's going to sting through the off season. Migo give them tons of credit really where it starts, and great team. We knew that. I thought the game we were going pretty good at the start. And then again. Apparently or we get our sucks ally of us then unfortunate play to give him a power play is really the game. Everything's going, okay. And then, you know, get into that specialty area where that's obviously a huge advantage for them. And they just made us pay. You gotta give him credit. I think the team there's this weaknesses. I'm proud of what we've done. I'm proud that we've gotten ourselves relevant again. I'm proud that we raise the bar in this position. I'm proud of their one of my teammates, just a Williams. The captain he's proud before that coach rod Brindamour who points to their special teams and really Carolina struggled over thirteen at to end the series on power play opportunities. So their last thirteen men advantages they failed to score. Meanwhile, Boston had at least one power play goal and every game. Can we talk about special teams in football right? Well, the big reason why the Bruins were able to sweep the hurricanes out of the postseason. Also, here's an interesting nerd alert for those of you who are hockey buffs. But also just like this kind of stuff, I don't necessarily think it's say predictor of the future, but it's interesting. Carolina swept the islanders in round to the islanders swept the penguins in round one. So whether you're talking about extra rest or just the kind of this weird trend. Of the teams that have had sweeps so far in the playoffs. None of them has won the next series petition. Again, I don't think that, that is a predictor of what will happen with the Bruins, or maybe they end up not winning and it's not because they had the sweep, and maybe it is about the time off, it's just quirky. Again, the islanders what the penguins, then the hurricane swept, the islanders than the Bruins swept the canes. So what happens in the Stanley Cup final things that make you go? Hall did anybody ever watch Arsenio hall late night TV I was obsessed with him when I was younger, I was in college. I can't remember exactly maybe high school, and I used to stay up and watch his show, and I loved it. I would laugh so. That make you go. And the we'll. Anyway. That was a flash.

"Aren't apologizing to Don cherry, Bryant Burke, or anyone for that matter. Sometimes boys just wanna have fun. Some teams might have been a little sensitive about being called a bunch of jerks. But is this team that would kind of like, I think we're starting to see your embracing that is that a team that can embrace this. Yeah. I it's people's opinions. I don't know what I don't think anybody in. Here's a jerk. But if they think we're jerks for trying to have fans interact and have fun with winning. And I don't think I think people have thought were mocking teams by doing. And it's it has nothing to do with us mocking any teams. It's just trying to keep our fans engaged and just have fun with them and going forward. I don't think we're changing anything. So we're probably gonna be jerks from here on it began in early October after their first home of the season, Jordan, Martinique and his teammates lined up. Their blue line got the crowd to clap along. Then skated the length of the ice in jumped onto the glass. And the storm surge was born as time went by and winds piled up celebrations became more elaborate, it would have been tough to imagine canes. Coach rod Brindamour. Participating in something like this. When he was a player, but he was completely on board with this. I know it's a huge part of any profession. You got enjoy what you do. And the first thing, you know, that you've got to put in the work if you can find a way to make it somewhat enjoyable, then I think you get more out of I know, you do I mean winning is the number one thing that'll make fun. But I think our guys, but in honest effort, and again, enjoying what you do is certainly important Brindamour Canadian. But he spent the last ten years of his playing career in Raleigh where the games routes aren't quite as deep fans are enjoying the remember that's what we're here to do. They're the ones that pay the salaries, and we have to do things a little different down here.

"Second round series beginning in the Stanley Cup playoffs. The islanders host the hurricanes who eliminated the defending Stanley Cup champion capitals with a winning double overtime in game. Seven at coach. Rod Brindamour said the next step will be even more difficult, obviously their team, you don't you don't get to this point of the season and not be a good team. And the way they do it is much different than I think Washington does. So all the it'll be a huge challenge. The sharks are also coming off and overtime win in game seven and will host the Colorado Avalanche. I'm rich Ackerman. Clever is going to beat the warriors again, we'll find out tonight canes. I'll sharks Avs, it's all happening for on any seven last. When extra money by listening to xtrasports make sense, right? There's the thousand dollar payoff sponsored by peaked.

"The hurricanes. It's just round one. But it's game seven, and it was double overtime last night huge deal for them. I mean the way they've been able to fight through this entire series. And they were down to nothing to start the series came back and tied it up and got routed in game five came back home again when that game in overtime to force the game seven then to be down two goals. A couple of times last night for overtime, then double overtime into pull it out. I mean, it's it's really exciting for them. If they've got a lot of this team, and they beat the defending champion the Washington Capitals. And so they move on. Now do the hurricanes take on the New York. Islanders in round two. Now, there are a lot of things very interesting about this team the head coach rod Brindamour was a member of the two thousand six Stanley Cup champion team. No, I was working with Bill resent ski at a different station at that time, and I didn't know whole lot about hockey, he's a huge hockey fan. So I got an education that year back in two thousand six when the hurricanes beat the and Oilers to win the Stanley Cup. And so there's there's championship precedent for this team. You just may not have been paying attention for a while. But now, you need to start paying attention because this team this feels a lot like that team doesn't not absolutely. And I think that Brindamour has been a game changer in this one coming back as a first year head coach just injecting his team with a ton of energy just changing, I think just the hallway they look at things, and they got a lot of young players on the team. Then some veteran guys as well. Just williams. I know he was crucial in the game last night. And he's he's won a couple of himself. So I think they got a good mix of guys over there right now and rod Brinda just leading the way with with his energy hold that thought because I want to come back to Brindamour in a minute. But even before twenty two thousand six. They were in the Stanley Cup final in two thousand two and I remember because I was working with Keith Larson at the time. And we were you know, Larson's a pretty big hockey fan. And we were talking about the fact that they were playing in the against the Detroit Red Wings and so- ABC had the the the Stanley Cup playoffs and the and the final and they brought an alum. Nichols to commentate trying to bring some of that miracle on ice feel and drum up some some coverage, I guess so L Michael's gets on one of the games when night, and then there's this clip which will live in infamy..

"I'm not really sure exactly what's going on with them. But he's he hasn't been quite the same player towards the end of the season and into the playoffs and this team needs their best players to be great. If they want to move onto the next round. So how do you feel Brindamour? He's been doing a hell of a job. Obviously, how do you feel? He has going into this game. You know? I mean, you're on a virgin knocking on obviously the Stanley Cup champs in a stunning. What would be huge upset? And then move on to face the islanders and the next round. If you if you pull this off, how do you think he is psyche wise, nerve wise stress wise going into this big game tomorrow night. I think that rod. I think he's fine to be honest with you. I mean, I think he'll tell you that he's kinda in a in a in a sort of parental way. He's more nervous for the players than than he is, you know for himself. But I think he's confident. I mean, the thing that we know about rod Brindamour is that the way that he eliminates pressure is he just works himself to death. That's how it was the player. And that's always been as a coach. He's the ultimate workhorse prepares like nobody else. So and and he brings a level of experience. I think that the players like and that they latch onto a little bit. So from his perspective. I mean, I I don't know. I don't know how how nervous he is. But I know that he's going to work hard. That's just in the nature of who he is. And he has figured out a way to to to get messages across and bring things out of players that maybe they didn't believe they can do themselves. Well, I think it's gonna be a great game. I know you're excited. I think everybody's excited. Raleigh's excited DC's excited. I think the national audience is starting to get excited. They got to see to game seven tonight.

"Be scared. I think cascade of losing. Get a wanna play control the puck, and and you know, not be afraid to to make mistakes. And again, I think that we should have a lot of confidence in here. We know what we are team. We know what we have to do. And again, just a matter of doing three current shirks scored a goal a game seven Joe Thornton, Joe pavilion. Logan, couture each of them. With a pair Ken I ever game seven for the Golden Knights, but they do have nine players on the roster with experience in these decisive games. But only one Paul Stassen his played in more than one and Stassen as four under his belt. He seemingly relishes this experience. His teams are three and one game sevens. And he has four goals and four assists tomorrow night. The defending champs are on home ice Washington against Carolina in the hurricanes are going for the first round upset head coach rod Brindamour confident heading into a game that he believes part of the process our feel like where the better team. I mean who? Play but have to do it. And that's another another factor in you know, the other teams great team. I mean, there's the best for reason. So. We wanna be that you have to knock these guys and you have to do on the road. Like, that's that's another town's Washington. The best right now because they're the defending Stanley Cup champions, but not so much. So in game seven five and eleven all time just three eight on home ice while Brindamour hurricanes after the franchise's fifth straight game seven victory something that's only been three done three times before an NHL history.

"So you gotta give the capitals of the hurricanes win game seven kind of break that that. And snap that trend. But you look at it. And you just see the defending Stanley Cup champions in their own building in a game seven. That's a lot of to ask the hurricanes to go out there and do and I just wonder how the hurricanes feel inside that room. Right. They have this miracle run to the playoffs that nobody expected him to do. And now they forced a game seven. Could there be a sense of accomplishment in that dressing him? I wouldn't think so just because you've got guys like Justin Williams, Jordan, stall guys that have been there and done that remind some of the young kids like Teravainene and a ho hey, don't feel like there's some sense if we accomplish something just because we force the defending Stanley Cup champions to a game seven. Here's what we can do here. We've got a chance to beat them it Vance to the second round. And then we got an island team that's been sitting there who we think that we can be it. So the hurricanes have to be looking just like the Anders are looking say we can go on a little bit of run here. So you don't wanna spoil that by missing the opportunity to advance. So that's gonna be a great one to analyze great game last night. Even the goal that was taken away taking off the board. If you remember on the high stick didn't seem like the hurricanes were going to be beating it really didn't seem that way. Again, the team that scores. The first goal does not win. We saw it with Nashville in Dallas. We saw it with Washington. Carolina. Connolly gets the first goal comes five six the game. And there it stands and then the worst enemy of the Washington Capitals. Warren Fogel, the guy that knocks Oshii out earlier in the series ties the game up midway through so five minutes later the hurricanes have an answer. But then vetch Kim gets the tally less than five minutes to play in the period. Retake the lead to one. So now the hurricanes are certainly to be tested. They give up the first goal. They give a late goal in the first period patera vein in scores early in the second period. Major statement there don't let the Washington Capitals. Get a chance to play the lead immediately tie the game up to and then it stabilized, and then it was just a matter of who was going to blink and the blinking happened. By hoping the capitals and Jordan stall scores. His second of. Klaus three fifty one in Williams gets his first of the postseason against his old team Dougie Hamilton puts it away with the empty netter and the hurricanes apoplectic building they've gotta feel satisfied the fan wise the way this teams played three games at home three wins at home. Now, you cross your fingers toes and that they can win that game. Seven could be a major turning point this franchise history. You do have guys that played in game sevens before you do have guys on that team that won cops. And don't forget who your head coaches rod Brindamour, who's a part of that two thousand sixteen the pulled off the miracle and got the Carolina Hurricanes Cup coming out of the lockout. So there's a lot for the hurricanes. The feel good about as inexperienced as they may seem on the surface. You dig a little deeper, and you realize there are guys that have been the situation before. Now, you got the two game seven tonight. I mean, how great is this? If you're a hockey fan doubleheader both games winner, take all Maple Leafs. And the Bruins it's been a back and forth series for both of these teams can the Maple Leafs. When a third game. On the road doesn't seem possible. Does it Boston's been great all year?.

"ZipRecruiter dot com slash Rome. Ziprecruiter, the smartest way to hire. All right. We are efforting and I will run down. Rod brindamour. And by efforting. I mean, I found him we are joined by the head coach of the Carolina Hurricanes first season as hurricanes head coach he won a Stanley Cup with the hurricanes says a player twenty-fourth in NHL history in all time games. Played a two-time Selke award winner. Carolina is just four points out of first in the metropolitan division there at home against Winnipeg on Friday night, we are joined by their head coach rod Brindamour rod. It's been a minute or two or even longer. It's great to have you on the show. How are you? Rami? How are you longtime longtime? Brought how are things things are going. Well, having me on. Yeah. We got a good little role on air fun team to the coach. And we've got to keep it going, man. You've got a real good thing going on right here. And it's gonna talk about it's only asking Boston. Gotcha last night. But you still earn a point on the road rod against a tough team, but she'd won five straight going in. So let me start there. How do you go about handling a result? Like that do you immediately flush it and move on. Or does it linger a little bit? Mark figure. Flush it move on this time of year. But it lingers little, and that's the good thing. We you know, we're at a point in. I don't know what we're near the end of the year. We're getting there, but the expectations on this team have really risen than you know, the guys go in every night now expecting to win whether you're playing the Bruins or lightning or all the best teams. You know, we feel like we can win. And I think that's a huge change from what is here last few years. Customink to the group. I mean, we got great leadership fear guy. You know? Well, Justin Williams is really just taken off and. He's led this group. Rodman more joining us. Right. It's amazing. How quickly this thing is turned. I mean, it wasn't easy, but it's been relatively quickly. For instance. It's a franchise that has struggled for a little while they not reached the playoffs since oh nine, but you've already equal the highest win total since two thousand eleven when you were named head coach back in may, what did you make of where the team was. Why new we have good young talent? And you know, it's got some young players still that are relatively unknown in the hockey world, and they're on the rise. So that's great thing. And I knew that we had good leadership in there. And that's that's the key. You know, I mentioned Justin Williams already, but bringing him in last year kinda you know, whatever reason we we didn't make him are captain. But now we have and he's just taken off. And we got some some good young players. I said we've got an eighteen year old that's on the rise. And then are Sebastian Arcos, probably, you know, one of the best known players around. And he just continues to get better and better. So we're we look good for right now. But I I like the future rod Brindamour joining us and ride you're gonna make it about the team for sure, but let me make it about you for one minute. And I bring this up because team owner, Tom Dunn. Instead of you, quote, Roddy has in essence been a one man rebranding what it means to be a hurricane means something different to him than it does to everybody else and quote, so. What does it mean to you to be a hurricane? How would you define that? Good question. I well, this is my home. I got brought here in January of two thousand and you know, the hockey it just started here and. A lot of faith in me when I wasn't playing. Well, and it just I don't know. I just stuck with me it it just means something for me to see hockey grow here. And we took it to a good place. And then it kind of fell off the map and that hurt more than anything. So I just you know, what I think you cut me open. I think I'm bleeding hurricane rather? And it's just my family's from here going up. I wanna see it, you know, succeed. And so I think that's kind of what Tom's talking about. And he's a unique owner, we have a great relationship. He's all in in. It's just it's a fun time right now. Rob Brindamour, my guest, maybe answering my next question when you answer that. But let me say this point to he also made the point that when you were hired you didn't need that job. You had a really good life going. You were willing to put your reputation, maybe even your legacy on the line by taking that head coaching job. So why was that something that felt like it was worth the risk in? Why did you take that on a challenge? But I want to be honest with you, I didn't I was assistant coach for seven years. And if you're put the same amount of hours the head coach, and you just don't get to put your fingerprint on it. And I felt like before I was done with hockey. Why not give it a shot? And and at least see the things that I think could work would work, and you know, you just don't want to have any grass in your career. And this was an opportunity, and again, I I know all these players. I had a great relationship with them going in. And I just felt like you wanted to give it a crack and still far it's been great. And like, I said Tom's been great. I mean, anything we maybe he's all and he's trying to build something special and unique, and we do some crazy stuff. But it's all for you know, for trying to be the best. And that's that's what I love. He wants to be the best. And that's what we're trying to be. There's some crazy stuff. There's some fun stuff which I'll get to in a minute ride. But when you and I used to talk when you played you always had this amazing work ethic is a player. It was the stuff of literally absolute legend where did that come from? Is that something that you can teach other guys or they just have to have it by the time they get to that level while it's I think it's a bit of both. I think you definitely, you know, I think it's in you are a little bit. But I also know that in my case, I wasn't the best player. But I felt like that was the way I could compete with the best. If you just, you know, if y'all work them, and and I think that's kind of where we've started here day one was that was kind of the mental approach. We brought. It was you know, we're not we're gonna get worked. And and everyone says that you know, and I think in every ordinary Kozo will bring that to the message to their group, but our guys have bought into it for whatever reason. And so, you know, we may not be the most talented group out there. But that competitive edge really has given us the chance to win every night. He rod we talked about the Cup. What do you remember? You're looking ahead. But if I get you look back for one minute back to two thousand six what do you remember most about winning the Cup is a player, you know, six. Oh, man. And just you know, it's all the people. You know, you know, we have some great great players, but they're all great. Great people. You know, the air coils of the world and Bret Hedican Glen Wesley just the relationships forged through going through all that you really until you've actually been there and done that it's kinda hard to explain. But you create lifelong memories, and it was a special time, you know, even hearing you mentioned, those names kind of brings me back to that time, and we were having conversations with those guys like nothing will ever replace being in the middle of the action. And the rush that comes along with it is coaching close to that in any way. Do you ever get that same kind of rush of adrenaline coaching? You do I think that's the the other part of why I wanted to give it another crack was you know, obviously, you can't play anymore. But there s the next best thing still you're in a fight with the guys. And although, you know, you're not taking any punches you still feel him. And and that's I guess that's some that. You can do it forever. You probably would. It's just fun to be involved in. You know, you definitely on the coaching side of it. I think the hard part is the losses hurt a lot more than I guess, the winds feel good if that makes any sense, it's it's, you know, it's you take it with you. But again, it's it's fun to have that emotion, the be allies against Iran Maske, this before you go one of the ways to team celebrates the winds has been with these storm surge celebrations early in the season you start celebrating the home wins with a Viking clap. And then the celebrations became even more elaborate. It's a lot of fun. It's a lot of fun to see. But not everybody seems to get it. And you know, this hockey is a game of respect is a fundamental respect amongst the guys who play it and you don't want disrespect the game. But there's line here. Right. Like, Don cherry says that your guys been called a bunch of jerks for the celebrations again, I would argue rod there after the game. You're not disrespecting the opposition. Would he come out on this just you just said it? I mean, it's it's not we're not talking about the game. We're not talking about before the game. We're not talking about anything during the. A game that's full on with, you know, do everything. Right. This is after the game when you know, the cameras are off, and and this is just a time for the players to really was to do something a little more for the fans that are coming out and just terrific. Way you're sticking and go off the ice. And it just kind of marched into you know, what kind of gotten into we had the other night. We had Holyfield come out, and you can't make this stuff up. I mean, that's that's great everyone in the building loved it. And it's for the fans, and they're the ones that are paying come watch us. You know, we need to do everything we can to make it entertaining form. It has nothing to do with the showing up the opponent or doing anything. I everybody's off the ice. This is just fear fun time. And you know, maybe we put it into work first, and then they can have a little enjoyment with the fans after nobody's nobody's getting hurt. No one's getting disrespected. No one's getting hurt. And you've got to have some fun. Carolina is at home against Winnipeg on Friday. They're just four points out of first in the metropolitan division work to be done still yet. But what are your it's been already? Rod Brindamour, my guest. Rod. I'm so glad you got caught up. Finally, so good to have you on the show. Rod. Appreciate it very much. Thanks for only three shit. That was great.

"We talk some hockey. Rod Brindamour is the head coach of the Carolina Hurricanes. However before we do that as you know, we're getting ready for the upcoming NFL draft. I'm trying to get as many draft prospects on the program and in studio was at possibly can we are joined right now in studio by a two time national champion, a three time all American and academic all American a winner of the William v Campbell trophy the academic Heisman check these numbers two hundred and fifty tackles forty one tackles for loss. Sixteen sacks fifty six quarterback pressures sixteen pass breakups three forced fumbles four fumble recoveries two rushing touchdowns. If. If you need him and receiving touchdown. He's a former defensive lineman for Clemson draft is coming up in Nashville April twenty fifth through the twenty seventh Christian Wilkins momentum exhausted. Presented I'm doing. Well. Thanks for having. Appreciate a lot better than I actually have. Good resume. I've done this before. But never in person. So I appreciate you. It's good to see you start here. He posted some photos from the combine on your Instagram account. And you had the message quote worked all my life for this opportunity. I had a great experience at the combine just smile, and quote, what was the experience like there. I mean, it was great just first of all obviously getting invited is funny because you combine your whole life. Does Watson guys they man. I hope I get the opportunity to be there one day like that's what I wanna work to. And this is where lead, you know, seeing it on TV than actually being there is they manage it. And then you also realize that there's a lot more that goes on throughout the whole combine processing just the field stuff. That's that's the that's actually the fun part in like the best part of the week. You know, it's a it's a monster all of the days leading up to that. Because you know, you're in me injured on interviews. You're doing a lot of different stuff you're meeting where your medical stuff, and it's just like Bandidos pretty tiring. Like, you're on my four five hours of sleep. We just show that on TV. Exactly. That's also. But the those fun to finally. Just get on the field at the end of it. Do my best on the field and doing a position where Christian Wilkins joining us in studio. Now had Justice hill from Oklahoma state on the show yesterday. He said that none of the teams ask him anything weird, except we know the one guy was asked by the Seahawks to get into a staring contest another place since you asked him if he had both testicles. What was the weirdest thing that you were asked. I mean, I can't remember. But that was just like some like so question, those I've never been asked before I just like little things like, you know, don't like this question is are you a cat or dog like which one? Are you more? This little this little weird. That I I'd like you just gotta gotta choose. What you really don't get to like explain your answer. He's just gotta get to choose when I guess I think I went with the dog. But you know, just like you had a bunch of funky questions right thing. But I'd be like, I don't know manner. You a zebra or donkey, right? This has to do with what right, but but you prepare for it. Right. And you know, like, I mean, how do you approach that? You're you're not a guy who's not used to showing a big on the big stage. So how did you approach it and prepare for that? Really you can't really prepare for it. You just kinda got like just going like expecting the unexpected in like have the mindset like all right? Hey could be as I could go through anything like. Prepare for whatever. Re ready for whatever they throw at me. Just roll with the punches bracelet on and take it all in. We're talking to you Christian Wilkins. He's joining me in studio. Now, you could entered the draft last year, and you would have gone really high. But you decide to go back to school dabbled Sweeney said, quote, I was surprised that he came back because it goes against the grain of the kosher, and where we are in society, and quote, so what went into that. And how come you went back to school? I feel like, you know, you know, it's funny. He said that too because I feel like I'm always someone who goes against the grain kinda like not in a bad way. Just like, I kind of do I'm just not I try not to be the typical person or like more than just an athlete at times to win. Always used my platform to be a person of influence and make an impact is almost live and things like that. So there's a lot of reasons why I decided to go back to school. But I mean, I'll give you kind of just ashore. And really does this gut feeling kind of thing like I had dreams and goals of doing things that Clemson I before I got there. And I feel proud of the things I didn't like I didn't finish done making in a better place than I founded and. Just growing in the areas that I wanted to grow before I went to Clemson. So that led to it from the football out of those parts of my game. I could've still really improved on before. I made the jump and went to the NFL. I feel like I did those things this year. So that was great and top it all off just got closer with my teammates, my brother's life and won a national championship at the end of it. You know and still managed to improve on his areas that I wanted to prove on on the field. You know? So I just feel really good about it on looking forward to the next couple of months. I mean, there's so many things in that. I could talk you you could talk about things are non football related for the entire interview different guy. Like that in a really good way. I think that now a lot of people know also that you got enough academic credit to graduate in two and a half years graduated. I take a lot of in that because not too many not too many people from first of all where I grow up ever go to college. Let alone graduate myself and six I come from a big family. I got eight brothers and sisters and six of us all have caused degrees. Another to do have some former outside education other than high school. So I mean, just just the challenge the competition in the house alone scandal bar, set, high exactly and not only that like graduating Antonia's is tough. But they're all year round so's easier to let you know at a couple of extra classes here, and they're just trying to get it all done that way. If I left after my junior year, I had a degree and then so. Actually this last year too. I got my masters. I was able to get my masters in a year. Because I had already got my undergrad, and I did things like substitute teaching in my off spent some time what was that? Like, how did that go, man? That was great. It was really special to do that. You know, I felt like Arnold Schwarzenegger and our kindergarten cop car. You got. You got kids running up to you. Crawling all over your leg. Like, Mr. will, Mr. Wilkins is funny. Hearing them hearing them call me, Mr. is like. No, you're looking around. Right. Yeah. Like who's Mr. Wilkins? But it was great. Because you really go to teach those kids, but you learn learn so much from them more than you could ever teach them and just it's great to see like their innocence. And like just like, you know, just as good to know that I could have such an impact on their lives in you know, because what I realized much on is that not a lot of kids have a male teacher nine till they're in upper education, whether it's high school or college, and you know, let alone a black male teacher. So I was able to do that and provide that for both from both sides of the spectrum as well Christian Wilkins joins me in studio one my thought about this because you had a great line about being a sub quote, you have an imaginary sense of what teachers actually do. Teachers lounge was a real thing perception that everybody was sitting around and they're smoking cigarettes, quote, how accurate was that where the teachers lighting up and burning their heaters in the lounge working your way and actually getting ready for the curriculum in the classes. The teachers what goes on and they're just back. Right. Drinking literally just hanging out not doing anything just shooting the breeze. But yeah, no like during the teachers lounge is actually, you know, get ready for next classes, they're eating their lunch or whatever. But they're like, you know, preparing for the next, you know, for the rest of the day. You know, there's still like, you know, there's also just hanging out chilling. But you know, that's kind of like. Like, the that's kind of like always the perception. I had just as I must've saw it on like a TV show or movie stuck with me. I guess sitting around. Right. Talk about. It's really funny. You talk about how some of these kids have never seen like a a male role model or an African-American role model. United talked about this in the past one of the things that you've been able to do over the course of your time at Clemson is honor the memory of your grandfather, Yuri stamps, senior he was shot and killed by police officer in his own home. You wore number forty two to honor him. What was your grandfather? Like what kind of impact? Do you have on you? Man. Like, so it was funny like people who know my grandfather and see me they're like man, you really your grandfather's like grandson because. I'm in my hair's and braids now, but he had a big old head full of gray hair. His hair was wild kind of like how mind is what is I embrace and just the biggest outgoing personality love everybody. He came in contact with. He be the guy who gives you the shut off his back in a second like without without question. He give you his last dollar just to know that you were okay. So those are the things that I try to emulate in, you know, try to just as our life just how he was always positive always happy always mile in, you know, at least when I saw him nothing. He was a perfect person. But you know, that's just the perception I had them and growing up. I didn't really have my dad around the house when I got to see my grandfather, he was that positive male influence, a positive male figure in my life, as I felt like, you know, once he passes always important for me to, you know. Live the life. He he would continue to live and to be his legacy. Just have him live through me. That was always something that was important. So that's always what I tried to do. And just you know, a lot of my personality is genuine, but it's still like a lotta my grandfather in there as well. Yeah. Just wear the number. Forty two was always a source for motivation from he was born in nineteen forty two. So, you know, I'm not going to be able to get number forty two on the NFL. But we'll figure something out. I mean continue to honor him whether I write something about him on my shoes or on my taper something might be. No because his life was important to me. And I just wanted to allow him to be recognized and just. Discontinued honor him. It's great question Wilkins. Joining me in studio. It's been a couple of months since that national championship game against Bama at the end of that game. You're pretty on the sideline. Everybody's got to bring up stuff. I know I was emotional album. I'll cry. Good. On the under under TV to Shelton. Now, you're producing. You want could. Somewhere. That's awesome. Can you express like what was going on? I bring it up because it was corn emotional of ever done that like something like that is just like this is like well, first and foremost, like I just truly just love the game of football so much, and I give literally everything I have to the game weekend, Dan and day out like everything that lake everything, I focused my life to live goes back to football. Like, I can't eat this like I can't stay up late because I need sleep Sokha workout. Choice every choice. You make goes back to football. And just have such a love and appreciation for everything it does. And how much it's done for me and my life and the places it's taken me. So I mean, just to put your all into the game just that alone. Let them on with everything we went through together. Like, you know, there's a lot of stuff that goes on behind closed doors as a team and just that people stuff that people didn't know about and just everything can just decided to come back another year. And like, you know, that's that's that was the result of it. And it is all hit me at once. And I just couldn't hold it in and just you know, my mostly just got the best of me. And just let it all out big dog. Was that so hard that was actually pretty cool. No, sir. All right. So listen when dabble may decision to start Trevor Lawrence this season. There's this now famous story that you were taking him out to breakfast. And you've been really humble about this whole thing. You were saying look I was hungry. Trevor had car there's nothing to it. Right. But it seems like maybe it was a little bit bigger than that..
"rod brindamour" Discussed on WGR 550 Sports Radio
"Rod Brindamour tonight's coaches were they ever teammates. No. Got about Brindamour thousand games between them right Brindamour is Saint Louis originally. Let me see how bad I do on his career. I think it's Saint Louis originally Philadelphia Carolina for sure. He was around so long that I'm probably missing one or two. But now, I don't think more than that. I I remember blues flyers hurricanes. I don't recall him in another uniform. You're right. Okay. Then no way but Housley played for one of those teams. Flyers blues. When did he play for the blues as it happens after Brindamour had left for Philadelphia Bryn Mawr was there ninety nineteen one and Housley was there for twenty six games in ninety three ninety four. From Winnipeg to Saint Louis and then the next year Calgary and then the next year New Jersey, and then the next year, Washington, really. It was. He got quite got three quite a vagabond by the end. He Toronto's the final stop one game one game. What year is that two thousand three? That's incredible. He played until two thousand three one game. He was minus one and he got a penalty such a goon wonder. Yeah. Sabres and hurricanes Housley and Brindamour their teams tonight tied in the standings just outside of the playoffs. We have talked a lot about sabres this week. Couple of games makes sense. We would be doing that the deadline is. Two weeks from Monday, the twenty fifth, and so we're kind of in this mode here as sabres have chance as we know it's mode here with the show like got an idea player. You want a player you want to see them trade sort of a philosophy? We've been done a lot of names with the deadline. But we're figuring out at least for me. Like yesterday was a day for me where I had a new thought about the deadline, and what I want to see the sabers. Do this year has been more like not not interested in pressing for for this season. I'm not trading anybody really young away in the name of getting somebody older and better or somebody whatever it is like the one of the draft picks me and the reports of Ben more toward them not doing that not wanting to do that. I would give up one of the picks. I got three of them. I, you know, I know I find it'd be great to use them all. But if the right thing were there, and it was the difference between what you know, what what is that pick going to get me. Is that is that pick with a prospect something that gets me a decent rental? Yes. Then I would do it or even someone under contract. Okay. I think someone with money like, I know I know that Jason bachelor said they're not in that market. They're not going to trade futures for rentals. And I a part of me feels like that's just the kind of thing that you say when you're the general manager of a team that is still sort of building. But I think if it gets right down to it. And there's a player they think could really fit and help them that maybe you would say, you know, what we just had. It was the right time to do it. And we get kind of like the bills with Kelvin Benjamin. Even though that fizzled, it's good cautionary tale. But we're better than we thought. We'd be I didn't really wanna trade something for a player. But I feel like I should do this for the team if you can do that smartly this this may be obvious. But in my opinion, the fans would love that if the sabres traded a first round pick and a Rochester piece, whoever it might be for if they were to do that you would be getting someone that fans know of like that would be for a name. Yeah. Not a star necessarily, but it would be known player. And I think this fan base would love that. Yeah. And I think you know, if it's not saying go too, far, we deserve it. We have just had all these years of building and draft picks. You know, all of that like. Like. If you can do that in a way that that doesn't compromise. And I assume if they were to do this, it wouldn't the bigger plan? Then I think that that would go over very well. And I want to consider that it's important. I think it should matter. What the fans want to sell to some degree. Yeah. I think so so yeah, I mean, I think the right guy. There is. If that's attainable. That's something that I I want to entertain. And and I don't. What we do a talk show, but in my heart because I'm just sitting around here up at the bar. You know, enjoying a delicious beer. Which I've been prone to do. I think I would I would say the same thing. I I don't I don't take box rolled literally that we're not gonna do that. I think when you get you get down the road here. And there if they're three points out a point out in a spot, and it's Monday, the twenty fifth and the Rangers wanna trade, Kevin Hayes. Okay. What's it gonna take to make that happen? This isn't a great player. But this is a good player and someone who would definitely help your forward doubt right now. You know, not a prolific scorer. But a good score. Like, he's a good player. They want to do that. He's twenty six years old. Okay. I I mean, I'll be able to sign him. I'm not gonna worry about that. Right now. I'm going to put him on my team, and we're going to go do this fine. I got a trade Brandon Guli and a first round pick to make it happen. Okay. I'm I'm I'm okay here that might sound insane bottle were here this he he crashes car. They what are you crazy? I don't know that seems reasonable to me. I've got three of those picks. And that that is something that could help me, and I don't I don't think those guys a guy like bottles doing his job thinking about fan approval ratings. But. Man. I mean, I think you're absolutely right. That Pete people go. Oh, wow. We did something to help us. Now, we can do that in hockey. It's been forever. I mean, when's the last time they made a deal that was supposed to I mean. Well, Tim Murray did plenty of that. Not like not the same. Right. But the team wasn't good. But he was trying to make the team good. Yeah. He made big traits. But not not like this. What you're talking about? What is the last raid mean, it would have been Darcy were gear making it? Yeah. And so most people will be thinking well that it probably didn't get made. But. Eleven two thousand eleven they make the playoffs. Two thousand twelve they came close. Did they make buyer moves? They probably did something right, man. I'll bet I don't even know. Dominic more. Yeah. Dominic more that could that might might have been that guy. Raffi Torres right actually sabres. Wow, Raffi Torres and like neither did anything. Either guy. A any difference Soros had to leave where he could make an impact of the playoffs needed. If I just run in some some guy in Chicago getting suspended, right? That's right. Hosa? Somebody was it hosts on. Yeah. Yeah. Suddenly just went way back there. So anyway. That that idea is still good Hayes is on my mind. Scot Colin wrote a piece about his today at NHL dot com. Used to be with TSN, he's freelancing or whatever. Anyway, I read a piece on him at NHL dot com today thought like why I don't know if I'm the Rangers. I wanna trade that player. But you know, they're in a weird spot. Are they what are they doing? You know, they're going to keep this player. They're going to build around him. He's kind of a tweeter. He's not super young. But he's not old. He's not signed. So I don't know. That's just one idea. I need a new name. I like to have a name when I do this and Charlie Coyle. That idea sort of died for me yesterday. When Meco got knocked out for the year. I just don't think if Minnesota was ever going to trade, Charlie Coyle. I don't know. I really don't know if they ever we're going to. But it was a fun idea for me to think about I think that sort of got dusted by Koi penile now for the yearly there in a playoff spot. I don't think they can afford to trade another center away losing. So that doesn't have to be right. But anyway, I'm onto Kevin Hayes now. But that's my new one that's new idea for me. I'm open to other ideas. The call idea was not something I thought of myself a caller brought it up to us a month and a half ago. Okay. That sounds good. Sit with that for a while. Who knows if they even want to do anything like that in themselves, but you know, Guli this is the the rest of the point earlier talking about him. I think that there should be some action to their defense corps. I think there should be some action. And I you remember from yesterday, and Jeremy and I were talking about it in the suite on Tuesday night. I decided that taking this position on Guli. I want him here or traded by February twenty fifth. Let's make a decision on him. I want something. I I guess I want a next thing on Botterill to sort of to to think about and to have it be some. Just like a new item to ponder and try to figure out whether it's a good move. And how are we doing here? Like this season has been such that almost any outcome around where they're going to be is is you can argue that it's okay. Because of where they were last year and still like there's there's baggage here like how how much you really can you demand from them this year? So the deadline is a is a. An opportunity to evaluate him. And I wanna like I need more confidence in the sabers. Like through these moves these decisions, then I have the winning the lottery was awesome. And it gives them a chance. But like I needed also think really want to be able to think that they're going to do smart things. And there are a lot just the defenseman alone. There are lots of possibilities in the next couple of weeks there deep what they they're not good. But they have played a lot of bodies like almost everybody is here next year, unless they do something first McCabe, and who was it the two RFA's McCabe is RFA. And while using our guys are are f as all the other guys are signed including Nelson, including. Homework like they're all signed for for next season. So one way or another I think I want to affect that. And here's Guli who has some promise. You know, we know who he is AHL all star player young big skater. Like do. I wanna know what Jason Botterill is going to do there. I want to see him up here or traded. So I have some answer on him. I mean, it's not reasonable to demand that necessarily, but that's all I want. I want to have something there that they can give me a clue about what what I what I think of him. What I wanna do here on the blue line. I can't imagine Guli if he were in the lineup tonight would make them worse. I mean, you've got a team right now defensively and really most of the year. That's really sloppy. They they could have given up a lot more than four goals against Minnesota. I mean, it's just been. It's kind of a highway wreck sometimes. And some of that some of that is Darlene..

"The league possible hall of fame. Famer Ryan kesler was twenty third overall. You had Brian Boyle twenty-sixth over Allstone league. I say stone the league because you're talking about a draft that was fifteen years ago. Corey perry. Twenty eighth overall. All right, Louie, Eriksson thirty third overall Pierre Burr Berge Patrice Berge on forty fifth overall. Corey Crawford Stanley Cup champion coal tender fifty second overall, David back. Carr's sixty second overall, Jimmy Howard, sixty fourth overall. And then you go way down the list is maybe one of the biggest deals two hundred fifth overall Joep Veliky. All right Tobias end Strom still in league two hundred and thirty eighth overall Dustin buffalo and still believe two hundred and forty fifth overall. All right. You're Slough locked two hundred and seventy first overall Bryant Elliot two hundred ninety first overall player still in the league at the bottom of a draft from fifteen years ago. So right now to me two thousand three's the best but twenty fifteen has to be really really knocking on the door. Philip says maybe too late, but I'll give it a try. If you had to vote today for the Jack Adams award who would who would be your top three great question. Let me think about this for a second. Of course, Jack Adams trophy is for the coach of the year. Certainly Phil Housley would have to get consideration buffaloes in first place in the league and their ten game winning streak. So Phil Housley would have to be inconsideration. I would actually throw rod Brindamour name into the mix as well. There weren't a lot of expectations around Carolina. If the season were to end today pass the quarter pole they would be a playoff team. I think Peter's who was let go and Carolina now in Calgary has done a terrific job. Montgomery and Dallas has that team is a playoff team. So I had to narrow it down to the three. I mean, here's what I would give you I would I would probably give you and we can argue it, and you can fire tweets. Emmy, if you wanna if you wanna get into Phil Housley, I guess would be my number one. I would throw Phil Housley in that rod Brindamour, and let's throw Montgomery in Dallas, those will be the three that I would give for my my coaches of the end and just coincidentally, I actually do have a vote for that. And I will be looking forward to making that selection not now but clearly at the end of the season when they'll be a lot more information. And finally, Ricky says please discuss Allders moved to Nassau and your thoughts on teams expectations this summer. Nobody gave them a chance and they are still in the mix twenty-five percent in to the season. Yeah. I think you have to be. Somewhat happy on the goaltending has been pretty good. They haven't necessarily been healthy. They've they've survived that Barzel is not having a sophomore slump. I, but I do think teams are focusing on him just a little bit more. I think they've been a nice story. And what they've done is the Barry trots is given them structure, and you could clearly see they're better coach team, and your and your absolutely right. And we should definitely take it into consideration. The fact that they're going to be returning to the Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum on Saturday when the. Coming up on Saturday when the islanders will be like quickly. Look it up here playing host to the Columbus, blue jackets, and they we playing select games at the Coliseum. So that should be fun opening up that old barn..

"Leading radio. Pre game report rolls along. We're getting except for lightning and hurricanes. Greg Llanelli with you joining me right now, the guys that be calling the game Dave Mishkin and the hall of Famer Phil Esposito back in the saddle. Phil good. Do. We've got a good game. I think for you tonight. Carolina. Maybe one of the surprise teams in the league off to a great start. Well, I watched him play the other night. Actually I've seen him play twice. Now. And the speed really a freshman. They got a lot of young guys. Rod Brindamour done a terrific job. And getting these guys to change your whole style. And and I think it's the leadership group. You know, Justin Williams is something Jordan stall. But Justin Williams, even looked faster to me. Watching on television. Anyway. And. When you get leadership like that. And they started to get into this team building and everything else and it's working for them right now. I remember 'cause we saw Carolina that first preseason game. You did that game with. That's right. And then we went to Carolina for the next night where the lady brought a younger loss during his preseason both teams at younger players there. But I was chatting with John Forslund, the longtime announcer for Carolina, and he was talking about how impressive the team had been training came. We had three practices at points that you can tell all ready. I can tell already he said the big difference from last year to this year because Brindamour was on the staff last year previously Peterson there metrics are always good felt like the always outshot the opposition they'd really low shots against the never took a lot of penalties. Yup. But they'd always not always a lot of times they lose three two to they just couldn't score at a key time and invariably they missed the playoffs by a couple of points. He said the difference is they've taken what Peter's taught. And carried that into this year. But Brindamour has brought them. No, gopher Mizzou. Played that way. He he was a heart and soul guy. And he has them go go go, and they have a chance to make a play. And that's the difference. I think for them. I think you're right. I believe you're right. But you know, we can't get ahead of ourselves a glut five six game. Yeah. But they've outshot the opposition every thirty or more shots in every game. More shots in four of the six while talking to I was talking to the trip. She also works with John. And he said to me. Brindamour said the wants you to shoot the puck. Yeah. I mean. That.

"Hadn't sport games. Stamkos. Getting those players good about themselves. What's? Well, I think has said that earlier. That's if you're going to score you want your big is said to do some of it. And they that's what they're used to doing. So when they don't do it all of a sudden, you don't want lack of confidence or any of that stuff creeping in both those guys have done it now consistently. And so it's just a matter of time. All right John Cooper's post game press conference game presented by WMU Cooley law school, the Tampa campus has coop said Brian preseason games. They don't matter. Carolina was perfect in the preseason. Was it matter? Well, they're four zero and one now they're leading the metropolitan division. I know it's early but not too many people saw that coming out of the gate not too many people saw Fifty-seven shots on net tonight against Minnesota on the road in a comeback win in overtime win as well for the hurricanes. So yeah, we saw Carolina in the pre season. But this is. Definitely a team. That's a feeling a little underappreciated months to prove the world wrong here. So we've got an interesting little match up between these two teams Tuesday Carolina's good up and coming team. They've got lots of young talent. They are very young. They'd had good structure in the last couple of years under Peterson and he got fired and he's in Calgary now. But that structure is there then rod Brindamour who's elevated from assistant coach to head coach now and former player played with a lot of passion. And he has given some passion back to the players and expected passion back from them. And you know, the up a little bit looser rein to score some goals. So in other words, I think they're enjoying themselves more, you know, I think they got so clamped down because they were so young Bill Peters. I think maybe just put, you know, shoved stretch of structured down their throat so much that you didn't see anything else. So you know, you got some young talented players. It's early in the season, and they're feeling a little bit and good for them. It's good for the league whenever you know. When teams. Are successful in stretches. It gets everybody's attention and so- Carolina coming in here. Next games like Vancouver. Nobody expects Carolina to do much. Nobody expects Vancouver to do much and couvert won the game the other day, so beware. Exactly. And we see that winning is contagious and winning is fun. When you start having a little fun when you're showing up at the rank something hurricanes have not had a whole lot of since they won the Stanley Cup in two thousand six it's amazing the.
