Us army combat veteran husband to a beautiful wife. Daddy to amazing kiddos and on this episode of the show. I want to talk to you about identifying your passion in life and how you do that. That's a big question. I think we all have even if we haven't put into so many words like how do identify my passion in life. It's like well aaron. Who are you to talk about identifying passion. Well number one. I've identified my own number two. I developed a process to do just that net processes called the nine line framework which i put into the book called resolve. That is just a step by step guide for you. The veteran to help you to rediscover purpose meaning and you guessed it. Passion in your post military life before i dive into the episode today. I want to take a few minutes until you a little story. I myself love stories. I love hearing them. And i love telling them and this story is really near and dear to my heart because it's about my son. His name is christopher and you may have heard me talk about him on the show before But this story. I've never actually shared on the show because actually just happened about a week or two ago and my son christopher almost twelve years old. he's a normal kid. Not a huge fan of school. Really good in school gets really good grades Does everything well is i. I don't know if i would say popular. But you know people like him he. He's just a normal kid. And he. And i we have this unique Father son relationship. I mean we joke around a lot. We have a very very similar Sense of humor. So we have memes that will share back and forth and that's actually across our entire family that we can laugh at together and everything but this story about his passion for video games. Now you might be thinking well yeah. He's eleven year old boy. eleven year. Old kid boy girl the one but he's eleven year old kid and he loves video games. Yeah what kid doesn't we're here's the thing. He is not just passionate about video games. He is passionate about tech in school and his technical classes studying python programming language. He studying java script and his his his little techy and he loves the technical aspect of it. Well there's this that he has for one of his platforms. And it's called beets saber. You may have heard of it. It's on playstation four for vr. And it's on oculus quest to In fact every year. we're pretty much every year. We get a family gift at christmas and this past year. The family gift that we all could use was the oculus quest to and that is a a virtual reality gaming system. That's fully wireless but the headset on. Hold the controllers and you could just play play games fun and while he has been absolutely just going nuts over this thing having so much fun with it. Well again. this game beats saber. You can create your own levels if you modify the game and there is no right or wrong i should. There is a right or wrong way to do it but there is no manual that you can look at and say okay. This is how you modify find the game. So he gets on discord. he's he finds Some experts who know about modifying the game he chats with him for hours. Some of some of them are as friends he's he's played games with everything and he's talking to them. Like how do i modify this game. What do i need to do. He figures out the programs. He needs to us figures out how to roll the game back to a previous edition. Now he knows how to launch the game with these modifications so he can play his own levels on the game. Keep in mind. This had nothing to do with school this nothing to do with any requirement. This was just something that he wanted to do something that he is naturally gifted at and naturally naturally passionate about and that is that's what that's one of the things i wanna point out here. Today is your passion in life is most likely going to be something that you are naturally geared toward you are naturally good at and maybe even it may even be something that you have spent a lot of time practicing and preparing at and you've spent a lot of time working on developing that skill. It could be anything from woodworking to the medical field to an to. I'm the the passion ideas for your life are virtually endless. But you heard me referenced. The nine line framework earlier. And as i look at this nine line framework. You know again. It's it's this step by step guide. It is the process that helps you rediscover passion in your life after the military. And i look at these these lines in here. These chapters and the storage is told about my son. I can see him in these chapters. I can see how his passion is coming out just in the things that he is naturally doing now in the last episode i mentioned and talked about quite a bit actually line four. Which is what is my personality type. you know. why does it matter. And it's not even so much. Why does it matter. But how does that. Impact me and my passion and my purpose for life. And so i'm going to touch on line for a little bit today but i want to give you some examples from line five later in the show about discovering that passion in your life but line four again i used sixteen personalities dot com. You can go there right now. You can take this free assessment to figure out to learn what your personality type is and again that is not the only tool you can use you. Can use myers briggs. You can use the disk assessment. There are so many tools you can use to figure out your personality because in the military unless you are you had a way different experience than i did. They really ask you. What your what your passion was or even more specifically. They didn't ask what your personality was. Just said hey here the jobs you can pick from pick a job do your job and then you go your military career and you get out and now you're here listening to this show and saying man. How do identify my passion in life. What is it that i am passionate about. How do i find that. Well you'll hear me say this more than once. Pick up a copy of the resolve book. That is really your first step to figuring out your passion and your purpose and your meaning in your life after the military but again light for just goes over. What is your personality type. It walks you through that process of discovering who you are and who you're meant to be and line five asks another question it says what do i have to offer. And that's very specific to you. What do you have to offer the world. Because i believe that. A life focused on making a difference in the world as a life worth living. I think that's really what we're all after is that we want to make a difference. Maybe it's just in our own personal lives. Maybe it's in the lives of our friends or family or our church or our school whatever it may be or or if your teacher may be your students you want to make that positive impact and so line five walks you through that process of figuring out what it is that you have to offer so coming up after the break. That's what i'm going to talk about. I'm gonna share some examples and walk you through blind five and sharing this for free and you can pick up a copy of the book on amazon or on kerr's to fight again dot com but i'm gonna share the the line five here with you and some examples that can help you figure out what it is you are passionate about in your life. That's after the break. Stay with us. Many americans today.

You can also schedule your free consultation with marco once again that's live like others can't dot com get on the path to your dream life today all right so as we go into these examples. I want you to have an open. Mind here right some of these examples. You may not even thought of. But i i want you to keep in mind that some of these may not apply to you. Some of the may apply to you perfectly but before we get into those examples and went to review. Read you this quote from a retired general martin. Dempsey actually had him on the show. A few seasons ago A great conversation. You can go check that out. He talks about you know continuing to provide leadership in your post military life again. If you don't know years he is the former or the lissi would number was of eighteenth chairman of the joint chiefs of staff and so again great guy. We had a great conversation. Should go check that out. But i want to read you a quote. He said sometimes we wait for thunderclaps drum rolls and clearly on calls to alert us to what's important when actually it's most often the subtle and persistent signals around us. That make the most difference. I want you to think about that for a minute when you think about your passion and life and what. You are naturally geared toward what are those subtle and persistent signals. So in in the book. I talk about the subtle and persistent signal. I got even as a child as a teenager. Really that writing is something i am. Naturally gifted at is something. I'm naturally good at in fact My mother found a poem that i had written She was cleaning. My room was teenagers. Don't ask me why she was cleaning my room and she didn't make me do it but i'm very grateful for her but she was cleaning my room and she comes into the room and she sees this poem that i wrote and when i get home from school she asked me about it. She says hair. Where did you copy this phone for. Almost didn't copy it. I wrote it. And i'm all of a sudden proud of myself because see my mother had always been this voracious reader with a strong command of the english language so hearing her say something like that. Which implied the poem was of this incredibly high quality right. It has stuck with me to this day. That aaron you you're naturally gifted at that and that the poetry. It wasn't anything i had to do. It was something i had in my head and maybe even my heart and just wrote it down. It was something. I felt naturally wrong to do. Just like my son was naturally drawn to develop this modification for this game and figure out all the additional software he needed and how to modify it and how to play the game afterward. I was actually drawn to writing so in that case even though my son and i we get along great and we have great father son relationship were way different as far as our passions. Go and that's okay. It's the thing is my. My writing skills are they. Were constantly improving through my life and the funny thing is even as i wrote the book wonder like am i the most qualified person to to write this book. Maybe maybe i am gifted at writing right. Maybe i am good at this. But am i the most qualified person and so why do i tell you this right. I tell you this. Because i want you to realize something that i'm still learning myself. The skills you have are probably around eighty percents better than you actually think. I want to say that again. The skills that you have are probably around eighty percent better than you actually think. Now what are get the eighty percent number. You know statistically they say what is seventy. Six percent of statistics are made up on the spot. I will say this. Evidence is more inaccessible and nature. But the things you are passionate about. You are geared toward learning more about it it just this natural thing. It's not something that you can really force. Can you learn things and learn more about Passions in your life. of course. you can't can you learn how to take care of the zales in your garden or in your new hangar. The year rose garden right. Is rose garden on. That makes sense but i looked at my window and saw zulia so i i mentioned it so it. Can you learn about that. Scher will you be passionate about it. Maybe you can develop a passion for it but passionate in your life is is this area of your life. That's built in. Its this natural part view. And so where do you go from here right. What are those examples that promised you a before we get into those examples. I want to share with you just a few questions that you can write down to ask yourself and you can kind of fill these out like to help you figure out where you go from here and figure out what it is you have to offer the world so the first question goes right along the lines of my story. I just told about not only about my son but about myself. I have always been good at blank. Fill in the blank there. What is it that you have always been good at something. That seems easy for you for me. It was english and grammar and for my son. Tech is easy for him. Technologies easy for him super easy a he is are basically our systems administrator at the house. he knows so much about For my daughter the things she is naturally good at and she finds easy music. She finds that incredibly easy from wife. She finds the medical field incredibly easy to pick up on. And it's not because it's not challenging to learn it's because we have a passion for those particular things in our lives. Here's a second question you can ask yourself. I don't know why. But i really just enjoy doing the following things and then list those things what things that you do really bring you joy for me. It's writing it's crafting something from nothing. It's looking at this blank page and putting words on it and impacting the world with a those words. And let's see what's the next one number three this. This is kind of long ones. All probably read it a couple of times. I never thought about what. I'm naturally good at and what i enjoy until what so for this question. Think of a time your life in which our knowledge or skills or ability was needed. Think of a time when you were able to use it and you suddenly realized that brought you joy so i to read that one again and explain that a little more. I never thought about what. I'm naturally good at and what i enjoy until this particular event in my life. I never thought about me being really good at writing until my mother when i was fourteen. Fifteen years old picked up that poland in my room and said hey this is really good. Where did you copy this from. I never thought about that. My son may not have ever thought about how good he is attack. Until i pointed it out and said dude that is amazing that you figure that out on your own you contact the experts in and you did everything needs to do on your own and so when you think we think of that like okay. I never thought about what i'm naturally good at. And what i enjoy until a particular event in your life and you think about when your knowledge or your skills or abilities were needed and and then you say okay. I was able to use it at that point in my life and then you suddenly realize man that made me feel really good. That brought me joy. That was dare. I say it fun and a lot of times. We as adults we. We tend to tend to think like well. You know i'm an adult. I don't need to have funding more. I shouldn't be having fun anymore. I'm more focused on business and and making money taking care of my family. Those are all great things but at the end of the day passion following that passion pursuing that passion your life a lot of times what it feels like is fun just a lot of fun number four thing. You can ask yourself. I was able to make a difference in a person's life by using one or more of my unique abilities which not only made a difference but it brought me joy as well and the question is list those skills or abilities that you use to impact someone's life or to make a difference in the world for me. They'll be writing for my son that might be tech my daughter that might be music for my wife that might be the medical field. So there's so many things that again virtually unlimited number of things where you can find passion in your life and it's those things that you are naturally geared toward they. Here's a few examples. I'm going to review these for you just to give you a sense of where you can find passion in your life and don't get caught up on the stories themselves. I want you to imagine yourself. What is it that you personally find your passionate about. Here's example number one. I was a cormon in the navy. And i learned a lot about helping others in times of medical crisis. I found so much joy. In this. I knew my job well and i knew i was making a difference. Pretty simple right pretty direct and so this person says hey. I knew what i was doing was making a difference. And i found joy in it. Here's another really good one along the video games. A video games idea. I love playing video games call of duty fortnight minecraft you name it. I get a sense of joy out of playing them and truth be told. I'm pretty good at it. My unique personality which i found in line for which i now understand. It equips me well as a teacher and so a combined those elements to start a video game players club in my community. We get together. We eat snacks. Play video games. Hold tournaments and get to know each other better. It's such a great time. And i love it. So being a woman in the navy versus playing video games way different right but still these people can find passion in these things see. Here's a here's another one very a very hands on example. I've never really enjoyed school or sitting in the classroom. But one thing i do enjoy working with my hands getting my hands dirty now that i know my unique personality type again that he learned in line for i understand more about wild like this type of work and why i tend to dislike sitting in the classroom. I love solving problems. I distinctly remember one time when my elderly neighbors toilet was leaking. She asked me. If i knew someone who could help and gladly volunteered myself. I checked out the situation figured out what. The problem was unseated. The toilet installed a new wax ring and reseeded the toilet. She was so grateful. And i had fixed a problem for her. I felt really good about myself. That's huge The the the What do you call it. The joy the inner joy that comes from making a positive difference in someone else's life is absolutely huge. Now here's here's the last example share with you because we're running up on time but this one. I really liked this one. Because i have a dog. I love my dog and a lot of you probably have pets as well but this one says. I am a pet whisper. Yes it may sound silly to some. But i have an incredible heart for dogs cats birds and just about any other animal who is suffering or quote unquote down on their luck. In fact i have adopted two dogs and two cats. I've them better lives. This has been so rewarding to me and it is a passion. I continue to pursue. See the thing is there is not one specific passion that we are all going to find fulfilling the passion in your life is going to be your own. Here's the last thing. I want to share with you how we are built as humans. We're designed to live our best life in the context of relationships with other people. I to say that again as humans. We're are designed to live our best lives in the context of relationships with other people. You know chances are we're not all going to be billionaires or a world famous politicians. Are you know billboard topping musicians but we can all make a difference when we find that passion in our lives. We all have a lot of questions but the most important question you can ask yourself is this have. I accepted the forgiveness of sins. That only comes through faith in jesus christ. I hope you enjoyed this episode. Hope it's been helpful for you and that you've learned at least a little bit about identifying that passion in your life again you can pick up a copy of the resolve book at courage to fight again dot com or on amazon and i will share those links in the show notes as i typically do. Leave us a review. I tunes at definitely helps so much. Of course follow social media kurds. Finding in dot com is our website. Thank you so much for listening. We will see you next time.
Sabres Trade Hall to the Bruins for an Underwhelming Return
"Stumps were never super high on Taylor home after a few years in the league which is a viewer Observer thought was crazy but eventually you can't you just can't deny the fact. Again you can disagree with with teams and GM's not thinking that highly of Taylor Hall, but the proof is in the pudding every time he gets moved. So he gets moved for Adam Larson and that's a terrible trade anyway. But but yep. And so everyone's like wow, he got moved for that. Little, when he gets moved to Arizona, it's like, wow, was I forget was, was there not a like, he was a conditional first-round pick up, right? I believe it was right, but so you you're thinking, okay, it's going to be a ton of stuff and it really wasn't a huge huge deal. Then he becomes a free agent and obviously it's in the pandemic and he signs a 1.8 million dollar deal with the Sabres and I you I'm sure everybody is like Bruins what are you doing site? He's one year and eight million dollars to play for the freaking Sabres. Top that everybody should be trying to top it but they weren't then he gets moved at this deadline and Elliott Friedman comes out right after and he said he said since that Paul had to do with it with wanting to go to the Bruins and having to know move, but he's like the interest in Taylor Hall. Just wasn't as high as people thought it was going to be. Again you can disagree with them. But every time he moves, we all say, why is everyone so stupid? Why is that one? Giving up more for this guy but it's happening teams don't like Taylor Hall as much as we do,

Taylor Hall Shows Flashes in his First Game With the Bruins
"Did you think of Taylor Hall? Yeah, I think if you're a few of the problems you have to be encouraged as what you saw home. It's kind of interesting after the game. He saw a few like National people kind of reactive like I guess I forget who was if someone up in Canada that was like, well you saw from a game the Bruins have the works out for them with Kayla Hall like guys not confident really going to build his confidence back up which I mean he's he's admitted that but he needs to build his game back up, but I don't know how he saw anything from it off. They give you like a red flag of like all this guy's really fighting the puck. I mean, it's his first game with the new team hasn't played in ten days. People forget about the guy was literally was on the it was held out of games wage earning a new system. So, you know, I don't know people are expecting him to to score a hat-trick in his first game, but you know, I think he started off a little slow. I think he had to kind of adjust the new life mate said like kind of a bad turn over that kind of that spin around pass it went to a sabre instead of a brewing so like yes a little tentative at at this. But I think it's a game went on he got more comfortable. I think where you really kind of noticed him especially was transition wise very very kind of assertive and smooth to the neutral zone. Got a lot of an easy. Everybody was able to manufacture a lot of pretty clean Zone entries, which is usually been an issue for this team terms of kind of getting that momentum back. So I think especially moving phone number Against maybe more physical teams like the Islanders or the capitals where they really trying to, you know, have you in your Zone? Haven't got like Hall who can't support a guy like McAvoy or a Grizzly look and get the puck-moving. I think it'd be a big a big difference maker in terms of helping out that group. So I think if you're the Bruins as the the first step I think of to be encouraged it wasn't, you know, I don't get the month of drawbacks and people saying that you know, he he look like he was you know out of it or or anything like that like he was shooting off the rust seemed like he was fitting pretty well with Craig Smith and Dave G granted like Craig Smith might be scoring on a newline you put them on right now you guys just on fire so which is good news for the Bruins, right that gives them an actual finish on that line, but I think it's be encouraging. I think maybe that one thing people were concerned about, you know, there's the The Narrative about until hell not playing winning lucky or being a dog because he was on some bootleg teams, but I think his attention to details as the game went on we're pretty good. I mean That could that checking effort to really break up that last chance Buffalo hat and over time, you know, he was engaged on the other end of the ice or the thing is encouraging. So I think for a first step really know how you have to be discouraged by what you saw because the chances were there, right? He wasn't burying them. He supposed to work on a little bit but as a first kind of audition seemed like he did pretty well in that second line.

Yeah, well, the Bruins were ahead for Three minutes and 50 seconds in that game. And that's it. They took the lead for the first time at the 16 10 mark. I hated the goal. I hated the place started with middle statues kind of waving it. It's Smith in the neutral zone is he went by very poor effort there. And I, you know you go into the zone Reaching and preachy Richie and creature outwork everybody. And the sabers air around. You heard Kyle Pole, So say you got five guys, basically where they're supposed to be. But by that time everybody staring at the park. Well, what What if I always talked about for how many years now Awareness And nobody has any clue that Smith jumped in there. So whether you call it bad luck, Bad bounces. Whatever you want to call it. I call it creature working hard in the crease, giving the puck out to Smith. There He is, by himself and everybody. Everybody park watching. And You know that That stuff wasn't happening in the 1st. 40 minutes. I mean, what did we talk about? At the end of the second intermission that You know you got it can't go into the third period and have the hope that Lena saw Mark's going to stand on his head. And get to the game He almost did. I mean, he faced 15 shots in the third period he gave up to go or you know that the two goals But still made 13 say's while the other kids stands at the other end, what does he have to do? He stands there and makes three saves.

Could the Bruins Have Prevented Their Exposure To COVID?
"Know, who else has been kind of down bad Bruins and not because of bad play, but because they they got shut down on Friday covid-19. From this whole thing. I think a lot of fans are wondering as well. Number one. Should the game been played on Thursday you knew going in a Sabres staff member and tested positive. You had your Sean kuraly out where they will remember Bush said everyone tested positive accidentally slipped up and said everyone has a positive obviously didn't but Sean kuraly test positive at the time. It feels weird that they played like, I don't think a whole time like you have a guy who's been around the team who tested positive like wouldn't it be sworn to 6 today? And then just re-evaluate tomorrow. May I know what's the end of the it's it's the middle of the season it's hard to reschedule these games, but should they have played? All

And i think the sp mentioned that you know like the goaltending tandem hasn't been bad at all. I mean broschi. He hasn't been the best. But i mean he's been playing better than he was What's called like last season right. I mean last season. If i remember correctly he wasn't really playing while at all right. I mean he had a three twenty three goals against a nine hundred save percentage. He's got a slight increase this year. And then there's also chris strider drescher dry jer. Who's been playing fairly well to you know for somebody who's only had twenty seven games played in their career. You know he's had to forty goes against an a nine twenty. Eight percent jets nuts This team is looking pretty pretty fine. Honestly you know. I mean anything that i've seen with them. They've been entertaining to watch. So yeah i mean hey at the beginning of every team is good goaltending so they definitely have it It'll be interesting to see how long they're able to prolong it though. Want to look at their schedule. They have a good couple match-ups coming up. You know they have tampa they have nashville and have the blackhawks so they have a good couple of games up ahead. We'll have to take a look this week. See how do but hopefully they can stay. Hot does actually mentioned a a mentioned not again. But you know.

Contention if not already in super bowl contention so i mean green bay same situations. The bills lost in the afc championship loss in their championship. Game mccown for a championship game. The bills i believe are a better fit bill more money. Yes and the bills have a brighter. Yes the the packers are on their downturn. The bills are five years the next to you. Regard this still the packers. They're declining a the titans. Got a quarterback. It's time tannahill say never great. But they got derrick. Henry is the greatest running back. Damn right now so. That's the definition of carried by running back. But i mean it's coming out now to that there's a team there's an offer on the table forum for wanna say one year fifteen mil which is a little rich for me. But when you're paying mario. Addison jaguars probably honestly. When you're paying mario addison. I think he's making twelve thirteen or something. That's like i mean cut mario addison. He ain't doing shit and get rid of vernon butler or something and you got enough room. Both paid about ten million. So i'm saying you can make yourself enough room. Get rid of those two bombs for jawad. I don't care. I mean that's a crazy think too is seeing all of these I actually we're the expert experts wrong but like seeing these people get paid to be experts. Like espn and shit being like. Hey yeah you know. The bills are perfect. Fit for him if he goes to the bills. They're automatically you know a favourite at this point. It's like holy shit. I'm not use this. Should we make a prediction on where he goes. I think he's going awful. Yeah i feel like we have to. Because we're the expert experts from what we happens. So i'm also saying he's gonna go to the bills. I'm going to say they're gonna get him on a massage gonna give them a two year deal. I don't know why. But i think he's going to be two year deal second year player. Option i'm gonna say they're are round if they can get twelve and a half a year. I'll be happy to make my prediction. He's not going to the titans pakistan. Yeah to let's. Let's roll out the titans. Don't even our way here. Yeah come on. We every does. I'll be surprised because as the expert experts we can confirm to the titans or out of the running for. Jj watt they have no. There's just there's no fit their their their decent. But i still don't think he's gonna make that defense and he's just going to be playing on another team. That's gonna be good not great. That's where if you wanted to buffalo even the packers. At least he has help defense. The defense is both good. They just need pieces and he is a big piece so we could make large piece. Yes yes i heard something. They're going to try to move him to the interior.

"Today is a bit of a tricky player to play the sense that he likes to grab the puck and go any moves really fast and he occupies his scenarios of the ice. And it's up to you as linemate has debate to sorta get out of the way. Make yourself useful by occupying areas. He's not in. And i mean scattered out last year. Because i kind of that that that shooter are two years ago you know in skinner realize okay. He's the shooter. I'm listening on the net and finish if look a lot of goals things on eighteen nineteen season you as a lot of low quality shots. But he's the reason because we knew we had skinner new. Skinner was a finished on the so he was shooting for rebounds essentially where this past season he started shooting more than have that winger anymore and so he he the mold his game but still it's kind of figuring out to where you're going to fit in the style that he that he's gonna play. Yeah that that was a really interesting development where the first four years of his career on about. How thousand shots. What's a reasonable sample size. Eichel was at like nine point seven percent of the shooter in. You would always think that while he certainly was a volume shooter. He was too talented to as a true talent level. Be like that similar to earlier or early career nathan mackinnon and this past year jumped all the way up to fifteen point nine. And i'm not necessarily certain that at dab all he's gonna be able to maintain that as well but they're certainly must be some sort of a middle ground there moving forward that he can maintain an would You know lend a lot of confidence in his ability to keep up. His goalscoring totals near what he was at this year which is significant uptick from where he'd been ad in his first four years. Yeah exac he has. He had the shooting talent to do it. It it's i. I think what he's done. This year is the past year. is he kinda narrow. He i think he crafted a shot with me to shoot it as hard but he wanted to shoot it. More accurate was always. Echoes thing where he could rip it but even the power play like he would miss the net a lot and you know i think he's cut down that slapshot that he always did from the coast pointed to his lena's wish a lot in that that helped his game in that help the scoring. So yeah i agree. I don't think is going to be a fifteen percents The rest of his career but any dropped onto what I think that's more than fair for the guy shooting telling he has. I guess like from the sabers perspective. While i do while i did say like yeah when you can offer nothing you do it and.

"The in the jessica appropriate worked for him. Come up for one year. Play with technical my point up frequency and get paid a lot of money so you kind of works out for both of them You know it gets eichel Happy that they're trying to do things that they get him. You know afford like that On this team. So yeah. I mean it's the ultimate signed to fan even further in ownership w talked about money being lost kim pointing for them. You know for them to give eight million dollars even though it's one year That that's way over to the report you know contract offers. We heard five six billion dollars for hall so they went and over paid market value for him to make sure they got them now. That there's really nothing that you could hate about this in a overall gives the team. Some credibility It gives them back in the eyes of people around the hockey world too. So i'm full marks adams for for pulling that off because that was a really nice nice job there i guess the the interesting thing in terms of stylistically trying to project how this is gonna look like is is exactly that because initially i thought the two of them. I thought it was a bit of an odd fit. I just thought they would clash little bit because when you think of them at their core. They're both what they do. Best is they're prolific puck carriers through the neutral zone absolutely transport especially rushing the puck with understood. I think and it's interesting that you blend together now. Because for years taylor hall was up there at the top of the list for this category and then i kind of took his that mantle the past year and a half or so of player of winger. Especially who's the best that goes back retrieving the puck and is being man break. Our they take a coast to coast and create and don't really need anyone to help create room for them and so when you think about it that way it's like oh is there a bit of a point of diminishing returns here where it doesn't ultimately make that much sense to play them together but then you know i was thinking about her a bit more overtime..

"Twenty four to twenty nine years yeah. It's it's kind of reminds me of the sends balking on the rumored cody c. For taylor hall trade back day before the devils stepped in with adam larsson whereas oh well you know this is a big defenceman who's combine. We drafted him early. And so we are afraid of passing on his potential. It's like after a certain period of time. If all you have an remember species time and it's a similar thing was slide where it's like. Oh look at all the manatees playing well just because he's literally playing those minutes doesn't mean that he should be or that he's using them effectively to actually return your bang for the buck and it's not translating into results and ultimately the senators had to take a massive l. on it because they basically just wound up trae nc for for nikita zaitsev. And that's what they were half the show for their blind faith and i think it is a valuable skill for any organization out there to be able to emotionally detach themselves from former high pick of theirs and critically and sort of quickly Determine how good that player actually isn't will be and whether it's golden whether they should sell on i'm gonna just remarkable to think of what could have been traded for for so many years and how we kept talking about it. They should do. They should do it. And teams are still interested and now i really do genuinely wonder if he was made publicly available. What the best thing they could get is because it would make the team better just by not giving those benefits by. It'll be really really tough bill. Swallow publicly and save face after just comparing it to what was available years prior. Yeah it's it's crazy to go back and look at all. The first round picks a Dora gregory polanco neulander. I mean we're we're at the point. Where we're having conversation on casey middle stats. Did you know pull back on android emory. Now it's yet. He's he's the guy that remains here. And it's i don't know i don't know what it is An auto lakes some maybe that that helps Ralph krueger's a big fan of his. That's one of the reasons why. There's no trade cheddar. This year. Because i think pretty presents the fact is coming back the market it wouldn't be good anyways The coach really genuinely likes them. So he's the de facto assistant. Gm at this point. So he's he's coming back and we're gonna do this again banger off the wall again and keep wondering why you know. We're not getting the result tear in Keep are just gonna point at him and it's not going to change its maddening to figure out that this guy is probably going on his contract You know in for this team. It's it shouldn't be that way but it is what it is. Forget finishing his contract. I'm curious to see what is next contract. Looks like did that. This fear though right. You mean Front about the day. And i said you know if they extend him. I'm like i'm going to cover another team. I'm going to go cover seattle if they give him a contract. That's the final offering me. I cannot contain carbon in hockey lincoln. Just they'd be the most egregious move. I think any organization should go that great but be. It'd be bad little. It'd be nonsense all right. Well let's let's talk. What's i mean. It's more positive than because you know the taylor hall signing.

"If you were actually good at hockey the fact that he isn't is irrelevant here. Because history has taught us that at least one team out there will talk into fixing on based on that profile. And they'll pay handsomely for the opportunity to do so considering on the deals we've seen in recent years it would be almost impossible for them not to come out ahead by simply doing so. And what are we kind of ours. A bored in thinking ahead how they can fix this and whether the window the sal high autumn is close. You're talking about some of the trades that have been linked to him out there in the past and i think the most egregious one that was passed up on or was it executed at time when they still could was Nikola healers wants because they certainly that deal is no longer there for the taking. So that's one that i think was a really big gus mcginnis. Yeah i mean it's nuts. I don't all over squabbling over. Throw it in the end of the day. Winnipeg tired of it. It was like all right. Just forget it. We'll just see our season goes and then we'll talk later never happened and now the problem is you waited so long teams have caught on teams understand now that he's not that good so you're not really fooling anybody manager. Sammy sosa jack. Johnson getting contracts in bc. Not erica branson gets traded every single off season. But like it's just you're not getting anybody anymore and this is a team who of they do move him. Their hard headed we'll removing. We're getting a top six ford. Nobody's giving you a top six forward anymore. I made arguments this year. That i would trade him for a draft pick. I don't even care what the draft picks you make your team better by simply getting him off your team. Addition by subtraction. It's simple as that at this point. You clear some space. They have a ton of rachel defenseman to brought menteur back and they're gonna make him to the left side now which was absolutely terrible last year. But here we go. Let's let's run up back and do that again. It's because their unwillingness to move guys out in to make these decisions and he's the guy at epa top. There's you know you mentioned. Maybe reduce his minutes in. He gets better will. I would say i don't think he got. I've done the research on him when his minutes are reduced in. He doesn't play that much at five on five. These numbers are not that much better. So i don't even know if that would help him. He's just not a good five on five hockey player the majority of his points at least a look for the majority of his career. Come on the power play where he actually is good at that now given credit the last two years his five on five points have gone up so if you could try to sell that to somebody but he's just not a good five on five. Play everything on the ice. He heard you so in theory. You limit is minutes on the last than we heard you less. But i just don't think it's going to improve him and make him a better player by reducing his benefits nikki. Lewis was literally tied with the game and brad marchand for eighth and five on five scoring this season. Six million per season for his age..

And that's you know the main guy because of how good he is but there's Great consolation you know. We're we're seeing it now. You had a n vp caliber season last year You know that team without him as an asia. Not my opinion season. But you know i. It's tell people all the time and it's so odd to say that that honestly might have been the most fun. I've had watching sabres hockey because that fifteen sixteen season and it was basically it was a you know a reverse playoff right. Because you're you're watching games every single night. One you're seeing the sabers lose and then you're seeing how that impacts the standings at the bottom and then you're seeing arizona's playing so and so are they are they winning or losing and then you're watching edmonton and other teams and it's really. That's kinda like the most focus you've been on the standings that late in the season. And then you have that wild arizona game sabres game near the end of the season. Where sabres fans are openly rooting against team. People are wearing like taping coyotes locals over the jersey the gals at the game in seeing that it was insane. So you'll have those things in your memories is just wild. You also had the michael knol birth run where in february that season he. He played games at nine thirty. Eight eight percentage in those games. And i guess you you do save one eight points. In in that case he lost number cost them he points and then they're like. Hey we get. This guy had a town sitting goalies until the bad ones lynn. Back and he was good too and they had to like put him behind. Somebody like they kept getting goalies overplaying. Well you know when you think about it whether it was a successor i guess. Obviously you'd say it wasn't just in the sense that the team still hasn't made the playoffs. Since i guess hasn't manifested itself into anything sort of tangible looking like success for their innovation since then but you go back to it in those two years i mean my god forty four to eighteen record. They got outscored by like two hundred goals over those two seasons. Thanks set a new low water mark. Which i don't think we'll ever be matched again in the nhl. Where at five on five. They had a sub forty expected..

They're they're great or forgive on. So what about the fact. Act that this. His love interest is working for fricken. Darth Maul I wanNA see more of that that would be an excellent Disney plus series. Yeah hopefully they're they're new do they say they are on the produce shows they if they're going to produce a show about Kassian which have a great because it was first a separatist rebel. Yeah that's pretty good stories and both. Yeah so we don't need Star Wars that much I agree with you. I just don't think we need them in the movies. I think we need. That's what I think. Star Wars do what they're doing with them on the Laurie Right. Give me some more of the one hundred percent. Whatever I think star wars actually works better on a smaller scale because if you look back at the first movie star wars because that's what it was called when you know when it came out and said no new hope it's a small movie you know wreak main characters? They have to rescue rescue the princess. The princess is a bad ass. You know they got to fight the the evil wizard and they win at the end so very simple small story when they tried to expand it. Just don't think it works as well and that's something even yours Lucas for God with the with the Prequel to more of a spectacle and this this last one yeah I liked it but the scene where Landau rescues JEN. In that was too much breath. Just like you're trying to their shoehorning stuff in. Yeah yes you're making it too big. You know here. Let's talk about the enemy. Humping more simple. Let's talk about the ending of the rise of skywalker Number one when when the homeless lady asks him. Who are you you? What's your name? What's your last name? The last name thing. No one's ever asset star wars that kind of bothered me but putting that aside for her to say skywalker. My name is Joe Ray skywalker. I didn't like because you're not a Skywalker and I get that you're trying to honor these heroes of yours but yeah I didn't like that and that's where the movie comes. Rise of skywalker. She skywalker now no. She's not be who you are number one number two. Oh why is she on tattooing. This is my biggest problem with this movie. She's on tattooing to borrow to bury these two lightsabres right absolutely right. Why why tattooing alipay nuke because with nerve from there so well but Luke Haven Tattoo? He'd he couldn't wait to get out to win the whole. First movie establishes he hates attached to win and look at tap Wayne in the history. skywalker okay. Anikin was a slave on tattooing. His mother was also a slave and dies on Tattoo between Luke skywalker is Hidden on tattooing in hates it and can't wait to get out and uncles an asshole to him on Tattoo. We'd this this is the final resting place where these two relics of of the two great jet. I you put him on this planet they hated this planet this is honoring them. This terrible terrible. What a horrible idea? I get why they did it in the film because then you get the iconic image of her standing just luke was and you see the two sons stupid humidity without it was so she is a better. A better thing would have been an indoor. Maybe on yeah via the force Aw on an actual or how about you Evan. Yeah yeah album. The Moon of the nation's best would have been made no L. Sense at all to because they wanted to end with eighteen point. It's like no. They hated this planet. The head of the people on this planet the Skywalker family does not have a good history on this planet. I thought it was terrible. They move away from the one hundred percent agree. Find any Skywalker for done. Thank God that's it no one else and you get you get more creative now. I I don't I don't mind if they come back to the sky walkers as a concept if luke had a woman in his life because they never said if she was over married or not so he he could've been married at one point and he had a but the fear that they will marriage. Eight is a great character before Disney bottom. I loved marriage aid We're back to where they could introduce her anyways But if there's another skywalker out there I have no problem with that. That'd be fine with me as long as it's not got a trilogy. It's not about Darth vader. Or from that. Maybe maybe I'm GONNA be too told in two parts maybe free maybe with war award or a Disney or Disney plus series. You can have a Disney plus series called skywalker and it's ray tracing Janai although the one I'm now because here's your those shows and you get eight turn hours whatever you want to do and you can slow things down really big on those. Oh thank you don't have to rush and you have to worry about all. We have to do this or do that. Because we want to have a big opening and we have to make a billion dollars freaking pressure right. Here's here's here's A. I think this is probably going to be unpopular. I don't really care about the character ray. I don't I think she's kind of a boring character. To be quite honest she was really good in the force. Awakens is she's learning these powers but once once you get past that movie I think she's kind of a boring catchall character and I don't care about her story after this point I really don't Finn Finn I you know if I never hear him yell run again it will be too soon. I mean every movie. He Yells Ray every movie and I'm tired of it and I don't actually. He's actually that offends it's execution because his Brennan's brings the storm through Sunday rebel and now in the last in that they they've got a fortune of serviceability very interesting character but the way they did it maybe wasn't the best now Brennan was they didn't know how to what I would like to see who it correctly is a poll. That is my opinion the best of the new characters. I really like his character. You know I even liked the end of it. where he kind of gives that little now to the one Keri Russell's character and she shakes her head no and he's like okay without saying that was really good? I really enjoyed that. That's character that I would love to see more adventures of. He's just more interested in. You thought enough money at him he'll do it and quite honestly I think a lot of that has to do with the negative reaction to the last Jedi three movies. I mean I mean it's been it's random them. Oh sure any my friend. And and what's her name release closer on counts because now the company fundamentally as something that should go away mean something but to be so nasty. Yeah and and what they did to that That actress was bad What about the whole fact that The one girls character doesn't get hardly any screen time rose fortunate and I think the thing is that I cannot judge it because I think this movie was recode so many I agree and a this every time and they're like For every three hours with two hour movie he makes he should like ours. Do you think we should get and do you think this would be a good movie to give us a director's I cut off. That's an another hour I would love. I would love for Diet for food to get that. I don't think I don't think the worst two movies need it. I don't think the force breaking needs a an extended cut. There's really nothing else in there that I really care about. Yeah but the thing is that the enemy need some things that maybe where where I don't know some sometimes. Yeah they'll work on the left. The League team that were very interesting. Yes I agree with you but I think even more so this. He's moving. I think in this movie there has to be at least an hour. Things that didn't do counterprosal doesn't the fact that Matt Smith was on efficient. Because I think I don't think Disney ever said that that was but I think that something changed living use him and then there are so many things here that you know that they shut in the Anthony Donald booth. He talks about that. There are many many things that he shot with the ray of Phantom Bowl and seems with him and some other people the daily changed at the last meeting of the script and then they would although they set. There are many because they didn't want to see him. I'm selfish and I want to see him. I Snyder everyone I I mean you know. Here's the thing about the Snyder. Cut So jumping over to the DC. Yeah here's the thing. The two movies that Snyder did. Aw were bad right. Yeah they were bad. Why does anybody think that the Justice League Snyder Cut? Would it'd be better than what we got Well from what I heard Dark side was supposed to be in it. That he wasn't so steppenwolf will be the really the bad guy he was just like a I forget his name of the item. Michael Big Word Muggle so he does not get the guy says or were to prepare thing dot com who basically Donald. So that was something that was said Ren than your Sweden made the family the Russian primarily. I think whatever they were which is more important in the movie and nobody knows why doesn't really applies when I want to give you the human perspective nine power. What's what's going on in this situation? Marvel or DC humans are grown. Roy they nobody pays attention. They just probably see these like nobody's business. Listen nothing nothing happens. But that's true star wars from somewhere yet. We're you know something that Someone pointed out. I think it was in twitter that I never thought about it but I think it's true it's every sport fight. Every laser a lifesaver bite as a private fight has been a private one is hasn't been probably that's true. Knows we've got people watching and I thought about it and win over the battles in our thoughts on two guys or girls guy now the attack of the clones. Yeah except for cloth the one but it wasn't really was really sort the sword because because the one with Duke was private right but no technically coliseum. There's a whole yeah but they weren't fighting with With with another taper. We're fighting with DROID lightsaber right. Yeah and that's uninteresting. Five but I never thought about that either. Yeah that's interesting. I'm unfunded that other. ooh That's weird. Yeah never thought about it. Yeah I mean if you saw two guys go zero holy crap. What do you think about the Cameos in this movie? John Williams is actually in the Star Wars universe. Now I love that. I was in the theory of the first nine. I just couldn't help myself I said. Hey what and then the Guy My my my right and then the next guy over the same thing. That's your Williams was like an only. I think only the two of US noticed the one. The one that I couldn't figure out is in the final big battle space battle. There's a guy in the cock and in the Governor seat on the Falcon these like. Oh Dude that was Wedge Antilles that weight and tell us yeah. I knew because I read. I recognized him but I couldn't figure who I'm like. I know that Guy I think it was reborn. Yeah I didn't know who wasn't. He's undercover and he's mentioned because network -Ly Recipes Tried to recruit him at the end of the book is kind of in the wings about it. I don't know right. Maybe I'm GonNa stay here but then in the movie here I recognize them. I didn't recognize I knew I knew him. I just couldn't figure out from there so I actually did the research to find who wasn't I thought it was like. Yes because wedge in the original trilogy was the best pilot he was better than Luke. Laws I mean. Wedge Antilles was the man now of course Kodama and is the man now and in the force awakens. When he's blowing up the tie fighters shooting the stormtroopers on the ground On Mazuz Planet. That was awesome. I love that scene I mean and also the thing that I would say about these three movie the acting best acting in any star wars. I agree one hundred percent in fact I was just having this discussion broad the bell one hundred percent driver. That's with Anthony. Doesn't say I love you right. But he's Ryan and then. I watched him the other night on a Netflix through the the Mars. I know what you're talking about. Yep Man that guy is such a good actor. I was just having this discussion. Who the friend at work? WHO's a Big Star Wars Fan? And I said here's the thing about the original trilogy. Other than Carrie Fisher.

"What are your thoughts on the topic? Well, again, you're not putting revert along on the hall. He doesn't have a Stanley Cup. He's gonna finish with over five hundred wins. Hank is going to finish with over five hundred wins. That to me is a lot of demarcation you're going to the hall of fame. Hang has been a consistent twenty plus game. When her every single year of his career, he's been one of the money goaltenders in the shootout. He's been in the playoffs basically every year, but two in one of the years he missed the playoffs was on the last day of the season in a shootout in Philadelphia. So you telling me he's played a entire career is one of the best goaltenders in the league is not gonna go to all of fame. And let's say he happens to stumble into a championship two years from now at the end of his career when he's like the backup. Then you put him in the hall of fame doesn't make any sense. All right. Any Giacomo doesn't have a ring. The does he not go into all fame? Now curtis. Joseph was a compiler Curtis. Joseph had a lot of wins over four hundred in his career. Didn't win a Stanley Cup. I'm not even sure Joseph played in a final. I don't think he did. But he played a lot of different teams bounced around and Hanks going to play his whole career likely with the New York Rangers. He's been their best player for a long time. I just think it's lazy analysis. Just all he doesn't have a it isn't going all you're gonna put a Nikola. Hobby Boone all fame. Neom. The hall of fame Crawford hall of fame you for those guys in all fame because they just happen to win a Cup. Now, come on lazy. Lazy lazy? Lazy hate that? This was fun. Could do it again tomorrow? That's. One. It was we got games to go over some really good ones tonight. I'm looking forward to that penguin avalanche game. I think that's going to be a lot of fun to watch same thing with the Maple Leafs in the sharks. The of the Leafs can't take advantage of the sharks having played the night before and in overtime to boot. So you want to get involved at Don McGregor. Hashtag game. His conduct is the way to do that talk again tomorrow. This was the Wednesday edition of game has gone to. Listening.

"You know, we didn't get a chance to talk about that trade. And it just seemed to be another one of those deals kinda like what we saw with his brother getting dealt away from Edmonton to the Rangers is that was kind of just the change of scenery type of deal. But I I should've asked he LA should've asked EJ about that back on Monday for a little bit more details on that trade Mark says as Hank did on Monday should goal. These be expected to immediately pull off their masks when they suspect even the slightest abnormality even though they risk being injured if play continues. Thanks. Well, it's it's it's tricky. Now, if unit me you miss the ranger Senator game on Monday, Hank took a shot off the mask, and apparently a strap. Loosened. He didn't wanna play. So he threw it off. But went into happening a shot was fired. Anyway, the official is going to be the one that's gonna decide whether it was it's okay to get stoppage player. Not otherwise you're going to see Goldie just throw their mask off whenever they feel like they're interesting just needed time out that wouldn't be fair either. It's kind of like when a player gets injured. It's at the discretion of the official. Whether he let's play continually blows, the whistle. Usually if they're not in harm's way. And there's a there's a possibility of a goal. They'll let play continue. It's the same thing with the goalie. I mean, just because you throw your mask off doesn't necessarily mean they're going to blow the whistle. So you have to be very, very careful. Sam says listening to Oilers conducts game last night, I guess he was talking about the Oilers and the stars. But maybe is listening to both the Oilers and the connects to different games. I thought their radio announcer was going to spontaneously combust when mcdavid goal in overtime was waved off. All right. So it was the Oilers stars. Okay. I don't blame him. It looked to me. Like it had crossed the line. Did you agree? With the call while you're probably talking about Jack, Michael he is the play by play voice of the Evanson Oilers. And I could totally see him flipping out. All right. We've talked about this last year and a couple of years, right? See if I can explain it to you. And I'm not sure if this relieving came up, they showed us the one angle it looked like across the line to me. But again, it has to be definitive because the call on the ice was no goal was waved off. So it has to be one hundred percent conclusive that across the line. And I'm not really sure that it was Sam because that could have been snow. The other thing about it is and people have to realize this, especially if they're new to hockey, and I didn't even think about it when it was told to me by John Shannon up in sports net. Is that? The ice is a quarter inch thick the line is painted on the floor of the arena, and then is seen through the quarter inch of ice. All right. If you follow me, so if the puck is on the line if you angle away because of the difference between the surface of the ice and the surface of the line could make it seem like it's actually not on the line and show the white between the puck and the line making it think that it's a goal. I think that's taken into consideration when they review I'm not one hundred percent sure on this case that was the situation. But I think that's something that they take into consideration that it could be an optical illusion. Think about it for a second. And again, I'm no, I'm no, I'm the physics major and believe me, I don't wanna get into all that. But that's the way it was explained to me in a kind of makes sense. So I understand where you're coming from there. AJ man's does yesterday on sports net. They're talking about Henrik Lundqvist and one of them said he doesn't belong in the hall because he doesn't have a Cup..

"We had EJ on earlier that there was some in his opinion, the differences philosophically was the direction of the franchise as far as bringing some of the younger players up. It seemed that Hextall was a little too patient for the ownerships liking. I've also heard rumors that they were in on the knee Lander deal that they could've traded four Willie leat Neil Lander. But Hextall didn't wanna give up. Certain players in the organization, so. That's that's some of the stuff that you're hearing there. But I do think there's going to be a new head coach there anyway. So it probably doesn't matter Robert says, what is your choice of greatest player. Name of all time. My vote is for Morris. Titanic who played nineteen games for the Buffalo Sabres from seventy five to seventy seven with zero points. The sabers it picked him in the first round twelve overall in seventy three he turned out to be a Titanic bust. I get what you said nother. Great question off the top of my head. Those Kriva crafts off who played for the Chicago. Blackhawks I believe his first name was eager. He was eager Kriva crafts off. And the reason I love the name was because I was working at sports phone at the time and sports phone and for people that don't know what sports phone is this is back in the nineties eighties nineties when you'd have to call the number to get a score nine seven six one three one three was based out of New York. There was a New York line of Chicago line of Detroit line. And there was a nine hundred number that was for national people. So I had to do the update in Detroit and Cueva crafts off gets called up. And he scores a goal, and we're all trying to figure out how in the world do you pronounce eager Cuba crafts off? And this is before YouTube and the internet so and we we didn't have the game on television. So we had to figure it out and we eventually figured out. It was green crabs off. That's the name that I loved Ron tug. Nut is also the for for kindergarten. Humor is still a great name for sure I have to say. That that was one of my favorites as well. Troy said just wanted to say I feel carry price is overrated to in all honesty. I think quick does more for the Los Angeles king than price did for Montreal on another note. Dylan Strom had a pretty productive night for Chicago any thoughts on the trade..

"Am in agreement with you in not understanding why he's rated so high when he hasn't been an elite level in recent memory like last night Curtis mcelhinney made forty eight saves but price gets the headline for making a big hit when he gave up to early goals in a loss in that hit by the way that he I forget who the hurricane that. He hit behind the net was should have been a penalty. It was a nice hit. But the energetic star for the hurricanes should get. More credit? Yeah. I don't know what it is. I mean Curtis mcelhinney is a guy that's bounced around. He's claimed off waivers on a team that plays in Carolina. And then there's carry price who who want a championship of the AHL was anointed the be the next Patrick wa for the Montreal Canadians and us lived up to expectations, and and people have to understand this. I'm not lashing out at Carey price. I'm not saying he's not a good goaltender. I would even go as far as to say that at times he plays like a great goaltender but overrated does not mean you're bad overrated means that you are overrated. And I think there are a lot of people especially up in Canada that rate him as the best colder under the National Hockey League. And I don't even think it's close peck arena is so much better goaltender than than than price. It just is. I mean, overall Henrik Lundquist is better better goal tender in his career than Carey price. I I don't care that he beats Lundquist in the regular season. And I know he missed his opportunity in the playoffs because he got hurt, but the consistency. The fact that that the the has been injured the fact that he's been on some good team. That has not made runs. I mean, there's a lot of things working against him. And I do think he's a good goal tender. But my gun they rate the goaltenders they got him like as the best goaltender in the top three. I don't think he's in the top three. I really don't change says between the Rangers and islanders which local team has surprised you the most. Well, I would probably say it's the Rangers. Although I think I thought that they could be a playoff team going in. But when they got off the such slow star. What was it two seven and one whatever it was in the first ten games. I don't think there was ever going to be a chance that they were going to be a team that would flirt with first place. So that that's kind of a surprise to me. Forever t h says, hey, Don yesterday. You said Carey price was overrated. So what is your mount Rushmore of most overrated players of all time. According to you. Wow. That's a great one. Because I'd have to really think about that overrated players. You know, what let's file this away. Let me think about it. And I'll come up with a list tomorrow. I mean, I hate to kill players like that. But you know, what's you know, when you when when you talk about a player being overrated, first of all, it's it's over it's an overrated criticism because you could be great. I think Joe Montana's overrated doesn't mean Joe, Montana's. Not great doesn't mean to Joe, Montana's. Not one of the greatest quarterbacks I ever saw. I just think that people rate him too high. That's all that it is you could still be great and be overrated. And I think that it's more of a criticism of the people that are overrating him than the actual player. So it's not that I'm really criticizing Kerry price. I'm more criticizing the people that have compliment them so high so let me try to do. Do that tomorrow? But a great one Jake says, hey, Don, I've read different things on the Hextall firing are with some saying that the flyers fired the wrong guy. What's your opinion on the organization's decision to read Hextall? Listen, they could've got rid of both of them and hacks and Hextall, and I think hack stole is going to be gone once they figure out who the next general manager is going to be unless it's somebody within the organization, then he's gonna wanna probably bring in his own guy. So I think it's only a matter of time before hassles. Fires. So it's it's really semantics here you're hearing a lot of different rumors..

"When you think about the fence men, he definitely leaps to mind, and as you seven seventh overall appoints is is pretty significant. He was a part of that seventy nine team the came very close to winning a Stanley Cup stills around the organization relationship is very good. I mean, there was a problem for a long time with retell getting his number retired. But the relationship is very very close between the Rangers and Ron gresh out love to see him get his day. I will ask around and see if there's any kind of a mental towards something. Like that happening. Zach says completely agree with yesterday's case. The price is overrated. He is not consistent another overrated. Goldie is Matt Murray. Yes, injuries are shame. But it's just. It's just not a lead. I don't see him lasting long in the NHL. And certainly, you know between him and dismiss trying to figure out who's the number one goaltender Murray has been hurt. He's as you know, you're you're you're part of a couple of Stanley Cup championships. But you look at what happened with quick you. Look what happened when the EMMY you look what happened with Crawford. We saw crew we've talked about the so much. We we've there's been a crop of goaltenders over the last twenty years that have no shot of the hall of fame that I would never consider a leap, but they have rings now. Quick differ anyone to and he's been very good. Although his injuries and ways playing right now, you don't think of him as a legal tender think he's going to the hall of fame and yet you can have goaltenders like Roberta Longo and Henrik Lundqvist go to the hall of fame without ring. So it's interesting kinda like quarterbacks in the NFL, you kinda judge them by championships. But is that fair when you see guys like Nikolai hobby Bouillon with a championship, and and really good goaltenders like peck arena, not winning a championship cab says Rimac. Done a having a career year plus seventeen eighteen points tied tenth defenseman a buzz about being Norris trophy contender. Do you? See anyone on the current Rangers roster that can replace his skill and leadership. I see good play. But not defense the way mcdonagh place while the hope was that it would be Brady shea and he's having an off year. All the other guys are just too young in their career. I think PR got the ability. Now, he wasn't drafted high. He was a free agent. But I think you see potential there both defensively and ofensive Lee can skate. He's got a good shot. He can handle the point on the power play. If you you asked me of the guys that the Angelo's the Shays that seems to be a kid and peon that I think can be a flat out star in this league. Matt says done how in the world was buffalo and allowed to reenter the game last night. He could hardly stand and needed a lot of help to get over the boards. I understand. He's one of the toughest in the league. But team Dr Shirley turned a blind eye. On this one. I don't know. I mean, I could ask around. I mean, you got to go through the concussion protocol. And you would have to assume that he did. So I'm not gonna pretend to be a doctor guys wobbly. They take them off and he passes the concussion protocol. There are times where a guy skates off on his own power looked like he's fine and fails the concussion protocol. I'm not even gonna pretend to try to figure out what these doctors. No. But I I do agree with you that it was kind of odd that that had happened. David says he's got to tweets here have to admit I got a real kick out of your unloading on Carey price today. I.

"Of course, Dallas comes in with with Sagan, and sped son Rach aloft, and Ben, and then, you know, the Oilers with their players would mcdavid and dry Seidel. And it ended up being that combination that ended up winning the game as dry Seidel finds cleft bomb with a great shot to forty two and overtime on a look like earlier comic David wanted as he gets a partial breakaway. The puck was crawling towards the line really looked to the naked eye when they showed the overhead that the puck did cross the line, but just couldn't definitively tell whether there was white between the black of the puck and the red of the goal line. Didn't matter anyways, the Oilers ended up winning that game in overtime one too. Nothing another overtime victory. This one for the kings. They beat the Canucks two to one that fast conduct start that great story Vancouver is now over is. They're just really struggling Dustin Brown gets his seventh fifty three seconds into overtime to win dust Brown's been very good for the kings since he came back from his injury and have seven goals on the years. Good. So certainly it's a law season for the kings who did activate Jonathan quick off. I are but the kings just they're dot destined to make the playoffs. They're destined to be in a bit of a rebuild Jardins. Got a lot of work to do there in Los Angeles. But a nice win for them in Vancouver to get the victory. Very interesting games tonight. Tough one for NBC sports, and that I won't lie blues in the Red Wings semi themes that are under five hundred you know, it's a rivalry that goes back to the eiser men with the big goal in the playoffs twenty years ago. But these teams don't even share a conference never nine division anymore. Neither of these teams are going to the playoffs. But that's the nationally televised game. If you've got the package, you'll be able to enjoy the ducks and. The Panthers can the Panthers kind of build off that overtime win over the devils. And can the ducks get the second back to back?

Anybody wants to climb aboard and ask them questions and make some comments David says with lists talking about Leia's Sanderson playing in the fourth line around the fourth line for the Rangers. I don't want him to approach the game as a traditional fourth line center. He. Needs to play his game in order for his skills to flourish. I don't disagree that he needs to do that. The question is will playing on the fourth line a give him the minutes to do that. And be will he be flying with players to be able to sensu eight his talent level? So I agree with you. But I think sometimes you've gotta play to your strength. But also you've got to play to the strengths of who you are playing with. So I understand his philosophy is got to be impressed. So I can move up. I'm just not sure you're going to have the capability of doing that when you're playing with obviously, not MacLeod. Now, he broke his hand.

"The darling deal last year just didn't seem to work out. You know, Cam Ward's now in Chicago, so looks like the hurricanes might have found their goaltender and Curtis. Mcelhinney Ottawa three unanswered goals to be Philadelphia. Four to three the final there and Phillies first game without Ron Hextall as the general manager and kind of went the same way as before. Four can't hold onto a league. Can't get quality goaltending. And that's been a major problem. Philadelphia going back, you know, a long way not just recently. But their goaltending has been obviously, a major major problem for them stole ours is the fifth goaltender to make a start. Philadelphia this year, and he faced only twenty two shots and made eighteen saves to get tagged with the loss the jersey born kid getting the loss against an Ottawa team that I mentioned to you yesterday is actually a team that's got some talent. And they will play the back end of the home at home against the Rangers. Coming up tomorrow for seven thirty start in Ottawa. How about the ducks beating the lightning in Tampa of the final score? There was three to one as demeaning ends up getting beaten, but the story and this one is Anaheim's able to come back getting two goals in the third period. Nick Ritchie gets his second. Remember, they had the play a long time this season without Ritchie and in rowdy gets his second. Both goals coming in rapid succession, four fifty one and five thirty nine. So I don't think too many people thought the ducks would walk in Tampa and beat the lightning. But. That's exactly what happened especially with the Tampa blowing lead in the third period. Nice statement for the avalanche beating the Nashville predators. Three to just proven to them that they can hang avalanche and the eleven game losing streak versus the predators. They did win a couple of games in the playoffs. Let's not forget that. But and of course, the star goals number sixteen and seventeen on the year. But it would be Jost getting the game winner five seven into overtime as national just for some reason just does not seem to be the same team at home. Nice win for the coyotes. Is they go to Minnesota and beat the while the final score. There was four to three. It would be Archibald getting the game winning goal at the midway point of period. Number two. Michael Grabner, also got his sixth of the season Archibald scored earlier in the third as well. So three unanswered goals for the coyotes and the third period to by Archibald gets a nice road win for the coyotes decline with the game of five hundred what's going on with the. Golden knights. They score six against San Jose. Now, they score eight against Chicago an eight three victory over the Chicago Blackhawks and Blackhawks just in free fall right now. I know that they're not a playoff team, and they just made a trade, and they just fired their coach, but you shouldn't allow eight goals against anybody. Especially the Golden Knights who've really struggled outside of the game against San Jose over the weekend to score goals. But this thing was over quickly. Dave Daniel car gets its first. Tuck gets his eighth Eakin get's his ninth. Three nothing in the first period. Chicago does score two of the three goals in the second. But wedged in between was Carlson. Gold is seventh. And then then it would just lights out from their Reeves. Theodore gets a couple of goals. Eeking gets a second. He's gal got ten so as Vegas trying to find themselves here a little bit late in the season. Now climb above five hundred thirteen twelve and one as the offense is starting to go. I know we've talked so much about offense in. This league. But what a fun watch between the stars and the Oilers last night and the goal the game winning goal. Didn't come until we got to overtime not a ton of shots thirty one to twenty eight favor of Evan timid. I thought it was a fun game. Lot of town to players going in this game..

"He's got nineteen including the overtime winner. One forty one in overtime. They blew to nothing lead. Pa- Veliky gets a couple of goals both of them coming in the third one coming late, but buffalo doesn't seem to blink blow a two-goal lead. So what will still win and give a believe late? So what will still win go to overtime shootout? They're finding ways to win the best team in the league. I don't believe they are. Okay. Standings may differ. I still think camp is better when push comes to shove when everybody's healthy. I think Boston is right there with them. I think Toronto is probably a better team. They are. But it's a young team. That's figuring things out. And his each game goes by they are responding. Now. Eventually the streak is going to come to an end. And I've always been curious how teams respond when that happens. You don't wanna follow a ten game winning streak lose? And then lose three or next four or go five games. Like, just two points. Data will be interesting to see when a finally does come to another ride and a high in a division. It's very top heavy, but they've been competing in it. And they're not beating pushovers here. Either. They've been some good teams in the streak. I think the sharks are a team that is going to be better when the season is over then the probably right now. But that's a nice win again as buffalo just continues to ride and they're getting to goal tending they need as well. Big three to win the other game that was paying attention to last night penguins. And the jets we talked about it yesterday. The load of talent there was going to be on the ice for this one. And you feel good for the people of Winnipeg because they only get to see Sidney Crosby and you have getting Malcolm and all these guys just once a year, and they were hoping to get a win. But they didn't the third period turned out to be the difference. Tan of gets Winnipeg off to a good start with a goal. But then late in the first period Crosby gets his tenth, then at shy fli. It's two one. But then shea Han. It comes right back. Very underrated acquisition last year for Pittsburgh ties. It back to shy flea gets his second to make it three to only to see Pittsburgh comeback with to answer goals in the third early in the third grant gets his first and then Austin Reese gets his second. So that's when Pittsburgh is going to start to show me that they've turned the corner when it's other guys that are doing some things. Okay. He was like every time I watch Pittsburgh when a game it's because of Crosby, Malcolm Gansel, sometimes, of course, there's other players, but you know, when you can get things from grant and Austin Reese players that aren't among the elite, you know, Riley Sheahan. That's when you know, Pittsburgh is really a complete team. So they've got a lot of work to do. But listen, it's not too often that you beat Winnipeg when they're protecting a lead going into the third period, they're pretty much a lock and not last night. So that was an interesting game. Also interesting in Montreal as the hurricanes beat the Canadians by the final score of two to one. But a couple of things going on in this one not necessarily having to do with the result of the game. And that of course is shea Weber finally returning him. And there was an awful trae Nashville's one that trade in a slam dunk PK sue ban just a better player a healthier player younger player than Weber. But when Weber is back in the lineup Montreal certainly is a better team than without him. He did not contribute as a goal last night. But they did have an assist on the one tally that Montreal had midway through the third period to cut the deficit in half. So to be able to have him back is pretty significant of this organization moving forward. Also Carolina continuing to call up young kids really showing all the draft picks David able to accumulate at after missing the playoffs for a decade..
