"We'll talk about that but let's get into the one signing. I did wanna talk about because this was really interesting. I did not see this coming to be totally honest with you but big jumbo joe. Big joe is now a member of the florida panthers. The florida panthers have done some excellent signings over the past couple years and i mean they were second in the central division last year beating out tampa bay even and they went out and got even more players. I mean sam right. Sam reinhart alone scares the crap out of me The fact that. He's on that stacks. Florida panthers team and then they go out and get big jumbo. Joe so does. Does that mean that. The florida panthers could be considered as a stanley cup contender right now. Which starts on that. Obviously thornton thinks so. I mean we all know. There's only one reason he's going there right now. That's one is up and he thinks that that team can do it. I definitely think that they can. I think they're definitely at least at least a good playoff team. Without a doubt. I feel like if they have a really good regular season they could definitely be contender. But get a lotta this so these are the players. Did they have on their their team right now. And this is insane So alexander barkov.

"Sabres Hey, look, we all know about risk alliance weak spots and makes them difficult to trade The sables Bill. What are you talking about? He's great. We play in 25 minutes tonight. We love them. There's one team that really likes grass mistress the line because of how they use him, and it's the Buffalo Sabres, and nobody else would say Rasmus. First aligning should be played the way you're playing him. So it's like it's this huge, self inflicted wound that stretches across general managers and coaches. Is Rasmus crystalline. This like conundrum of a hockey player. He's big. He's tall. He's mean, we should play him this way. And everybody else who watches him is like absolutely not. You're doing it wrong. He should be like your second pair or third pair and play them on the power play. And that's it. Yeah. I mean, I mean recipes for cell line in this tale. I think we've talked about this plenty of times where he's a guy that certainly has some upside for the type of defenseman that he was. Touted about, but he gets too many minutes in the NHL, and he gets thrown at in all sorts of situations, and sometimes it's it's a little bit of information overload. I feel like for wrist aligning, and that's why I think we saw a little bit better. A version with Ritalin and when Kruger came in, because Kruger's simplified things so easily for a guy like crystalline, and it was just like, go out there and just be yourself player game. Don't worry about the complex stuff that goes into a defensive system. Just Just do you and I think we're still in and got that so easily that he actually started looking better. And then when don Granado took over, we saw other players step up. More players step up their own game and re Selena kind of I didn't I don't necessarily want to say went back and just stayed with old ways to stay the same. He kind of stayed the same. Maybe regress just a little bit, But like it was, it was clear Cut where it was just like Hey, like Ralph Krueger actually helped Rasmus for cell lining, but almost everybody else on the roster. It was a really bad thing for him to be. In the position that he was the way the Sabres use him almost guarantees negative outcomes for them when they're on the ice, and when he's on the ice because of his usage and everything they do for him. That's not true of Sam Reinhart. That's not true of Jack Eichel. When they use them, they produce great outcomes for them. In fact, you could say there that Reinhardt was underutilized until he got played at center and started really taking off with Granado there, even though he was, but for most of the year, he was consistently good for them, right. And that risk the linen would be the one who stays to do more damage to the team. Beyond the losing Reinhart and Michael would be catastrophic, like the first guy that should go as rust, aligning And you should do everything you can to keep Michael and to keep Reinhart and to keep that together because taking that one defenseman who's played 10 minutes too long every night off the ice and replaced with somebody else where you distribute the load, and everybody's playing better. Probably gets them how many more wins a season 56. And if you have a good goaltender You may be looking at 10 wins. And if you're looking at 10 lens suddenly you're you're at eighth place or seventh place and you're in the playoffs and you can stop worrying about this garbage. I mean, for a guy like crystalline in He's I mean, he puts up production He does because he's put on the power play. He's a good kind of guy. You throw it on the point at the power play a second power play unit guy, Definitely not a first power play unit guy. He doesn't have to be at the you know, doesn't have to be in front of the net. I know that some people like the idea of him being thrown in front of the net. But he's a guy that could be an offensive contributor, but he needs his his minutes limited big time. And throughout his entire tenure here, he was thrown right into the fire. He was thrown in given a bunch of minutes and I think it was a bunch of information overload for him. And I think a lot of teams around the league, see wrist, align and see his advanced stats and kind of see what kind of happens when that situation is presented to him, and I think a lot of teams are saying we should probably avoid that or unless they have a plan. That is perfect for Russell. I'd like. For example, if Bristol lining gets traded to Tampa Bay. I think he's great on Tampa Bay because they know how to utilize their clam. Right, right. Exactly If you give him to a really good team like a Tampa Bay. I mean, even like a Colorado he's gonna play bottom pair minutes. But that's perfect for wrist a line in and if he's going to be given offensive opportunities, and that's even more better for him. And it works for him more because he is given less of a workload for himself. And it's fine, which is a big problem structurally for the Sabres, because if the Sabres keeping crystalline it means they're going to continue to utilize him incorrectly, they're going to utilize other players incorrectly. That's a system problem that this organization problem. Yeah, And I think that if I mean at this point, and I wrote about this just before the start of the shortened season, I'm actually it might have been just before the draft and free agency began in October or something like that. I get I remember When exactly wrote this, But I wrote an article that was very similar. Are that not very similar, but it it was an idea that At this point, you might just want to trade wrist align, and for whatever you can get first off. You're freeing a camp at a $5.4 million, which would be huge for the Sabres, and especially if you're going to trade Jack Eichel, too, And you're not gonna have to worry about paying Sam Reinhart. If you trade him, and then you're going to lose somebody to a Seattle expansion team out. Speaking with Brian Duff yesterday, the Sabres in game TV host And pretty much he he made the point where it's just like you're going to free up a bunch of money just by trading these guys and letting one guy going the expansion draft alone. You're freeing up about $16 million off your cap it which is huge, because then you can make other bigger moves to help your roster. Whether that's acquiring another player to come in, or You know, utilizing that money to sign a better player offer sheet. Somebody you get all that cap space. Why not just offer sheet somebody, But then everybody's gonna say we're going to lose all your draft picks. It's just like, Yeah, I get it..

"Guys that are getting you. You know, 55 60 points a year and 25 goals. They're not nine plus million dollar players. So here's the gamble. The Sabres If you had a one for one trade, Chuck Ryan art and why I think it's possible because the Calgary Flames would get some Reinhart and they know what he's getting. You is consistent. They know what he's getting You, Matt, you could chalk, you're getting them. Okay, which I think And we all think is the better player. But there's a gamble here. He could be a 90 point player, or he could be a 65 point player, but you have to pay him. 19. Oh, you know what he consistently does. And those are great points. Marty, I must mention if you're just tuning into the instigators here on W G R 5 15 MSG we're talking about how supposedly macro Chuck wants might want might being the key word one out of Calgary? A Shane O'Brien said yesterday with Steve Coleus on the power play podcast. Um, but you know what? You know what could Chuck does consistently that we don't have Sam is very consistent. He's very consistent. Okay? Um, but what could Chuck does consistently is he makes the opposing team It makes him uneasy. Every time he's on the I said, You know, Sam. Sam is a very creative, crafty player. But I mean, when you know when market took doesn't have the park is sometimes when he is most effective. You know, like And I can pay for that. I'll pay for that because we haven't had that in such a long time. And I'm afraid that even with the money and Rev, I don't know if you agree or disagree, or Marty, I I feel like you will disagree. Um Even with the money That could Chuck is still worth more. He's we're talking about a $2 million difference between a Matthew Chuck moving forward. Sam Reiner. And both are fantastic players. I take nothing away from Sam Reinhart the differences when you look at both of them. What do you see? Matthew could Chuck as a power play guy. So the answer is yes. Yeah. And Sam Ryan hurts the same When you look at penalty killing Matthew could. Chuck is a penalty killer. Sam Reinhart is a Um, Is there some the chuck down? Yeah. He's a down the chart a sub penalty killer. When you look at, um Your leadership. Okay? Sam Ryan hurt. Where's the name here in Buffalo. And so does Matthew. Could Chuck in Calgary. Okay, when you look at physicality One has physicality, and one does not have physicality. I think I could account on two hands. How many times Sam's made a body check last year and you can count on two hands most nights where mask it chucks has 10 hits. He's nasty. He's aggressive. He irritates other teams. He sticks up for his teammates. He is a true competitor. And I think the way he plays the game. It would be something that Buffalo fans would salivate over a man like this wearing their jersey Well, the problem is a lot of teams would right. No. Yeah, but a lot of teams would but who has players that Like the personal injury does not want to trade Matthew Chuck for first round draft picks Exactly who has a player they want to get better. And Sam Ryan hurt is a player right now that's sitting on in the palm of their hands, saying Sam can be a really good player, and he has a history in Calgary to. I mean, Sam's dad played there right and can write, and it's tough lesson Is Calgary. A tough place to find First star players to want to go play is it does a destination. Pop it. It's a It's A It's a tougher place right now. It was they have a young player like Sam who would want to play for Calgary, which is beneficial for them. It wasn't a tougher It wasn't a tough place when they are Jerome again. Law and they had to keep herself in that and people are like, Oh, Calgary is a great team, and they go either. As Buffalo Buffaloes buffaloes an unbelievable place to play. People would love to get to have the right setting right, so but here's the thing. Like magic and Chuck, if made available, there's gonna be a liner teams wanting to acquire bench. You get chucked, but who has the quality of players that they would want to trade with Calgary to make that deal happen? And there's not a ton of teams out there most teams would say, just like we're doing with Jack Eichel right now. Would say. Okay, well, we'll give you like a high draft pick, maybe high prospect, high end prospect and maybe another player. The Sabres in this situation could say. We have Sam Reinhart that we may want to trade. We have Rasmus wrist alignment that we may want to trade like there is maybe Jack Eichel. I don't think Jack Eichel is in that conversation. But still, the Sabres have players. And good players that you know slippers would be looking to a change of scenery, bringing somebody different. Different culture. What is conquering need? What do they need for MCA? Check? What would they desperately need A return a defenseman? No. No. They would need a They would need a roster played. They would need somebody that would. This is the perfect in my opinion, the perfect match. Uh, you know, if that was a dating app it would be like green checks left and right on this one, because you get Energy guy in Buffalo and Kichak that can play as Riff said partly penalty Kill brings a Naj Can put that also has great leadership. Yeah. Great leadership and Calgary gets somebody down the middle. Maybe Okay. Maybe Reinhard plays down the middle, but somebody that consistent that puts up points that will score 25 goals a year like they would get a great return. I I think this to me makes perfect sense. It's lowering the cap to for Calgary. Like Marty said before they're going to have to qualify him. He's gonna be making $9 million next year. Well, can you bring in Sam Reinhart for 6.5? Maybe 6.75 on on a six or seven year deal. And you're paying them 2,000,002 and a half million less than what you're going to be paying, you know, Matthew, Good Chuck, and they feel that they're probably going to get the same type of player, a player that's going to produce offensively and You know this could be a great match for both sides. Someone wants to send. They want to trick they would trade Jack straight up for Coach Arc. That's what someone is saying here on Twitter. Not a chance, not a job watching this. This has come into the point where I would say, Petey, you You did that yesterday and I laughed when you talked about like You. It's been So long now that the discussion with Jack getting traded has started and the neck and all of that that After time in our minds, value starts to decrease. The value starts to come down because we've we've almost made our mind that the trade is going to happen. Whatever needs to happen the staff and it's like you put your house on the market. You say? I want 500,000 for that house, but it sits on the market six months and it's on the market eight months and now you're like I traded jabs for two first yesterday marked exactly I'd be happy to get 400. I'd be happy to get 3 50 for that $500,000 house, right? That's that's what is going on right now is the longer it goes. Our minds is thinking. Oh, like to make that trade to happen, We'll take class. We'll take a little less. I don't think that's happening with Kevin Adams. And that's why I think it's gonna take a long time and it may not happen this summer. I don't think it's going to happen to summer, Jack. Because you've got to get the right return You Kelly at Freedman yesterday was he said, didn't he? I the Sabres are asking for a boatload and they should be asking for a boatload. They're asking for a ton. Yeah. How many teams in the league actually have The equity to acquire Jack Eichel, then. Well, that was my next question. Like I remember. Um I think it came out and this was this was a while. Back when You know there was unhappy. You know, feelings with Jack and and the team, and then they started talking about okay. What's it gonna cost? And they said for First round picks. So what does that mean? That doesn't mean four first round draft picks. That means players that were either drafted as first round draft picks. Um and you would need for them. Correct? Yes, yeah..

"So I believe and some veteran players Yeah, in 98 99. They were fort in the Northeast Division. Okay, so Carolina made the playoffs. Carolina made the playoffs out of the Southeast because they were the top team, right? And they were basically they had They had 37 wins. They were the worst team going in. Carolina was worse, but they got a third seed because they cleanse the division, but they were Out of the other seven. But they had the right makeup, though, didn't they? They maybe didn't have the right makeup for regular season hockey. When all the penalties were called, I guess we're going back to the original question Was, Would you trade Jack for right? Um, Mich martyr. Right? Yeah, well, I mean, conversations they know to read to go. To go back to that. I wouldn't trade Jack for Mitch Marner. And it's it's I'm not saying that Mitch Marner is not equally on the same level as a Jack Eichel because he absolutely is times 10. All I'm saying is, I would be looking to move an extremely Productive player in a Sam Reinhart, who's basically the same age as Mitch Marner, who has produced less than Mitch Marner, but his still Who's still produced tremendously for the team that he's been on. And I look at Sam Reinhart, who's going to be you Look at Toronto. They have a cap issue. They have a tremendous amount of money tied up in in a in a couple players. I think Sam Reinhart would be a great addition and cost a lot less. Than a Mitch Marner. That's all I'm saying. And you're right. I mean, the idea if you're going to try to fool them, and I'm not saying giving them Sam Reinhart is is you're wrong. I'm not fooling it's no, no, no, I'm making it really good trade. I think. Yeah, but that's not the player you're gonna have to give. That's not where they're going to want No disrespect to Sam. Don't take it personally, if you're listening. But that's not the player they want. It's just have to settle. They may have to set off. It might be wrong there because you have a guy like, um is it Hyman Was an unrestricted free agent this year. That's gonna that he might praise himself out of the buffalo or the Toronto May police and now you're you're looking at trying to manage a cap where you have more players wanting more money. You're already paying these top guys a ton of money At some point in time, you might have to say. Sam Reinhart isn't Mitch Marner. Buddies damn close in a lot of areas because Sam playing with some really good players is going to produce without question. Well, then maybe it goes back to the Johansson million dollars. You're talking $4 million amounts. Big dollar amount $4.5 million difference between Mitch Marner and Sam Ryan hurt. Maybe you gotta do Darlene for Marner. Maybe it's more like the Seth Jones for Ryan Johansen deal. You know, Maybe it's something like that. We can talk about that later. If you want to. We can talk about it another day, But we've run out of time in this saying we have to go to break instigators. When we come back. We'll do to the point. I'll throw that in there. Can I ask you guys a question and throw that in there? Just a question before we go to the point. I want to test your NHL. Um, knowledge or history knowledge. Just quickly. Something that I just noticed, And I'm like I didn't even know Dad happened. How long do you need? 30 seconds. Do it right now. In 97 98. The Sabres were in the division with Boston, Montreal, Ottawa, Carolina and this other team who won the division named that team. I never knew the Sabres were in the same division with that team in Hartford. Nope. Hartford wasn't there in 97 98. Well, that's not my fault. So Boston, Buffalo, Montreal, Ottawa, Carolina and this theme Were in Buffalo's division in 97 98. Not Detroit, Detroit was out West bag down. Mm. The Pittsburgh Penguins gentlemen, the Pittsburgh Penguins were in the same division as Buffalo. They weren't with Philly. They weren't with the Rangers warned with the Islanders. I'm looking at the standings in 97 98. I'm like What, like Pittsburgh was not in the same division as Philly Rangers Islanders, New Jersey They were with us which surprised me. I didn't know why I remember that. You know, I remember that now because didn't Jay McKee absolutely clock Mario Lemieux at center ice? Take him out of the playoffs. With an open ice hit. Well, that was in, uh, 98. I think, Yeah. They didn't play in 98 against Pittsburgh. They played Philly in Montreal, and then they played Washington and lost the Washington Conference finals. Okay and skaters. He did hit him and he did in him. I I think that's in the 2000. One playoffs lot like it was a few years later. I didn't realize it was that much later. Okay. Alright. Different format. Maybe it might. It was that conference That was dog Conference playoffs, right? But so like it just I didn't know Pittsburgh was in the Buffalo Sabres division in 97 98. I didn't know that either. Instigators will be back with to the points to grow more to come. W g R Sports radio 5 50 all sports all the time. It's like I blinked.

"Three sports talk Saturday coming your way right now, making a recording Griswald hanging out with you all morning and into the afternoon. I'm going back to the Western Hotline for my final guest of the afternoon. It's Pete Jensen. He's a senior. Fantasy editor over at NHL Network Pete First time, Long time. Just kidding. It's been a long time. No man, it's good. Oh, it's good to have young. Um, Unfortunately, I wish it was under more positive circumstances. But we'll talk about the rest of the league and the playoffs that are about to get underway here. But yeah, I'm at first were gonna rip offs and scabs and talk about the sabers. Yeah. I mean, it's tough because you see what went on in the division outside of Buffalo, right? You saw like the Rangers have a really good season, missed the playoffs because they drew the tough straw and played in a division with Couple other jug or not, So even like with the Flyers going off the rails, Rangers were unable to make the playoffs. Nor where the sabers then the Rangers go ahead and pretty much blow up most of the organization from the leadership standpoint. With Gordon and John Davidson gone and the coach David Quinn, and then you look at Buffalo, like the expectations were also high, but it's just It's crazy like how the league has reacted to just this shortened season and things like that. But clearly, Buffalo has some issues and the biggest one is the Jack Eichel situation, which is just Such a big topic for us fantasy wise because he's a top 15 player in the league, you know, but I mean, if he's not happy there, if if they have to move on, it's just like it's an unfortunate thing for all the fans and buffalo that they couldn't Seymour out of Michael Yeah, I think maybe the worst part about it. Pete is just the continued narrative that oval trade him to the to the kings. But don't even mention by fields name don't even do it. Don't always go into the Rangers Will. You can't even talk cock. Oh, so it's like to me. How can you have these conversations around moving Jack Eichel when you can't even mention the team's top prospect, coming back and return and and what does that say to you about the state of the rest of the league and how they're viewing this Jack Eichel situation does. Guess. Does it speak to how dire the situation here in Buffalo is that even though they still have the leverage of right now, this year, this is the sabers have the most leverage right now heading into the season with the no trade clause kicking in next offseason. So does it say more about the state of the franchise? That there is still this view that even though they hold the cards in terms of financial and note movement clause that they're still being talked about is well, they're not getting anyone's top one or two prospects. I mean, what does that say about the state of this franchise and the leverage that they have in any Jack Eichel trade? Well, the state of play of the whole league right now. It's tough because you know it's during the pandemic. Luckily, they were able to play the season. But you know, a lot of these teams didn't have any fans for most of the season and Another cap is flat and their teams out there that are on the custom contention. Some that air in the playoffs that would love to add and Michael and, you know, I mentioned the Rangers obviously, like Seem like Montreal or Minnesota that are in the playoffs clearly need on elite center on the roster. But in order to do so, like you're you're strapped in terms of your cap. Constraints and stuff like that, so and then you have some top prospects. But you know these teams they're not like The sabers are not in the driver's seat, because it's kind of a falling out if they if they do have betrayed him, you know, it's not like we're these teams can they all feel well? Feel free to give up cold Caufield for? You know, like, why would they? Why would they offer them? It's gonna be the leverage is not Really in Buffalo's end. Unfortunately, so even though I kal is a proven, you know, top flight player in the league, so that's what's going to be. I'm sure like some of the conversations will be. It's gonna be really tough, you know? I think they're going to be able to get a lot back in return for a player of Michael's caliber, but It's unfortunate like this injury this year is a serious one, right if it was like a neck injury, and then you know throughout his Buffalo career, it's like coaching change after coaching change and You know you don't pin all of that on Jack Eichel, but especially, you know, the captain of the team past couple years. It's you know, it's been more and more on him, the more and more that it happens. So that's just something that follows the player. As he has You know progress in his career. Unfortunately, so the numbers speak for themselves, but there's a lot more attached to this situation clearly, and I think I mean, obviously, the same conversation is likely being had about Sam Reinhart, who's coming off of Ah. By the way, a top 10 scoring season in the league. Maybe his most consistent start to finish campaign We've seen from Sam Reinhart, and I think what it speaks to Pete is how long it can take in this league for young players to find their game and hit their ceiling, and it's what makes it so disappointing that you know, you have finally got to a point where Sam Reinhart's playing his best hockey. You have Jack Eichel, who sort of entering into that prime of his career, and now we're talking about them moving on from them before you get to actually reap the benefits off those dry Have pecs and I think you know the same conversation will eventually be had about Rasmus Darlene, who I think had a really nice turnaround under Don Coronado compared to the system he was playing in with Ralph Krueger. But you know, you look at this team and you say to yourself. It feels P Taylor wise or not far, and I was talking about this with Joe. You're done earlier here, and we talked about how There's this disconnect in the term Byeon, which has been used a lot by Kevin Adams, and by the previous coaching staff in this current one, where you have this talent and Taylor halls perfect example of this Taylor Hall scores, two goals and whatever it is 40 games here in Buffalo 35 games and he goes, he goes and scores five in the 1st 10 games when he's in Boston, I think buy in is an interesting way to basically say. I don't know. Try hard play your best game and like like, what is it about this team, But they can't get their best players or really talented players to buy into what they're trying to do on the ice and doesn't speak to him or organizational problem, Or is this strictly They didn't have the right coach. Maybe they do now and maybe that it's a simple is just the coach in the scheme. The coach is a huge part of it right. I mean, the night and day turn around when they're in the midst of that long losing streak, and they fired through there and then the way they played down the stretch was like really encouraging. And like, I mean, Ryan hard played his best hockey down the stretch for sure. And you saw middle stature step of. I mean middle stead last year's like in the H..

"Way know that the Buffalo sabers have lots of trade interest in Sam Reinhart leading right up to the trade deadline. The return just wasn't worth the value that you get in Sam Reinhart as a hockey player as AH high character individual. That position hasn't changed from Buffalo's perspective. Are they going to have to pay more in terms and maybe a little bit more in a V to keep this guy happened? That's what we don't know. I suspect over them might be the case. Yes, the sabers Darren Dreger on the instigators W GR earlier today, that time of year we talked about How or why or if it's possible to trade away their best players. That's on Sam Reinhart. One small point. I think it's small on this. Speculation about Eichel and like my Twitter was like this today, when I maybe when, when Darren was on the station or maybe not then, but it was like With the Rangers, but they don't want to trade this player like Laughren year with the king's maybe, but they don't want to trade this player by field. This idea of the best prospect and most of my Twitter is like, Don't even talk to them. Then just remember one thing. And you know those guys who make those points probably know this, but just remember one thing It's not like the the exact 30 best prospects out there are on 30 different teams. The same team could have the two best prospects in the league. Yeah, So I mean, I don't know There should be any sort of attitude about this, which is like if it's not their best guy. You can't have a conversation. I mean, it depends on who else they've got. Maybe it's possible that you could make a trade that you could live with. Yeah, I think I think so. But I I know. Um I mean, we'll see how it unfolds.

Um, I don't. I really don't think legitimately any any player in any teams organization. Should be off the table. If you're talking about trading for that guy, especially guys who just showed up in the league and maybe haven't even played it all but are you know projected to be really good like you're trading for somebody who is already made. And is going to step into your line up and Be a real contender for the best player on your team, if not flat out the best player on your team. So you know, you want to make that deal you're giving up five or six years of age, you know, with a guy like by Field or Turcotte. Another name, maybe. L. A bolo by field that you could live with. You know, the Rangers Um, I think you know, laugh. Rainier. Adam Fox to me is a very interesting piece there. Um, little older, you know, he's not. He's not a big 19 year old or anything. Defenseman Real Brill's just came on like crazy this year. Um, so there's there's ways around. I think a toast with those two examples. The perceived top guy. Ah, but that's where you should be setting your sights, starting out for sure. I don't know you might not end up there because of the injury. Right on back to football.

I think there's a lot of people out there who mistake quiet for week. And if you listen, I interview, he's a quiet guy Johannesen, but he's definitely not week.
