"shane wright" Discussed on The Ray & Dregs Hockey Podcast

"To see a ton of it because you were traveling, but double streak has stopped at 13 and I say weird because anybody watched it, there were three disallowed goals. Two of her goalie interference, one because Erika directed the puck into the net with his skate. That had devil's fans absolutely fuming. His amusing until they start throwing stuff on the ice and it's hitting players and it becomes a dangerous environment. I mean, we haven't seen that in a long time. Here's hoping we don't see it ever again in the National Hockey League, but just one of those kind of combustible situations. Yeah, it's a real scary place when things start flying out of the stands and you're on the ice. There's just, there's no where to go. You can't see where anything's coming from. When I was playing in Portland in the western Hockey League, we played in the old building in Seattle, which was an absolute zoo. It had chicken wire fence. Instead of glass, so the fans, like you'd be standing there, the fans would literally throw beer through the fencing onto you as your stance. There was stuff flying on the ice all over the place. And you just, you just never felt safe in there. Gets out of hand to become the mob mentality, and it's dangerous. You could throw anything on the ice and the potential for danger is there, right? Like it doesn't have to be something hard. It could be almost anything if somebody steps on it. If they don't clean it up, you know, or get it all off the ice, it becomes a danger. Greg, we played a game I was with Hartford and we were in Quebec and Carrie frazer was officiating. And he called a bunch of penalties and late in the third period on the nordiques and I don't know what the hell they did, but I think they opened up a supply closet. There were literally hundreds of rolls of toilet paper thrown on the ice and it would hit and then on travel. And so we're watching it. We're like, what the hell is going on? And so they eventually just canceled the game. I think with just less than a minute left. What's happening yesterday? That's dangerous. It's stupid. Because the potential for injury is there. Well, it forces the National Hockey League to do something knee jerk, right? I mean, you talk with your security people, you find out, okay, did we do enough? And I think the answer is yes. I mean, you can only stop it to a point, but the league pro sport in general does good things when it comes to incidents like this, because they have internal conversations, and they strategize, and they try and figure out ways to prevent it from happening again. So we'll see if there's any form of aftermath. A couple of small trades they want your opinion on because small trades don't always end up being small trades. The Toronto Maple Leafs acquire Connor Timmons from Arizona, no shock given the history of Timmons, right? A former Sioux Greyhound so that's right on there on the list of criteria that Kyle dubas holds near and dear to his heart. Given an opportunity, I don't know if you've seen enough of Connor Timmons at the NHL level. To ascertain what he's going to be, but I did a bit of reading today and some who know him well dating back to the OHL days talk about how good a defenseman he potentially will be terrific in exiting the puck out of his own zone, all of that. What's the risk, right? When you're giving up a piece that isn't going to fit into your plan moving forward. Now, I haven't seen Tim's play at the NHL level. He's had concussion issues that have plagued him throughout his career. When he was on the world junior team, he was really good. Like he was a well thought after prospect. I think second round pick by Colorado, out of the draft, and then he just never got on track. And so he's kind of lost his way through really no fault of his own just through injury. I don't mind this trade at all. I mean, if you're looking that maybe maybe there's lightning here, like maybe you get a player that can play. It's not like he's never played in the NHL before. He just hasn't stayed healthy enough to build any kind of resume to see what he would be like at this level. I was trying to think today. In the mid 80s, the least drafted every first round pick out of belleville, I think. It was one think you're right. I think you're right. And it's like, is that where the whole scouting department was or did they just live in belleville or like what the hell was going on there? Saint Marie Greyhound float around that chances are he's ending up in Toronto. So I hope for Tim and sake. That he can get his feet under him. I mean, he's had a real hard work. To really no fault of his own. Right, and leafs fans shouldn't be confused by this. I mean, he's a depth ad. If he places way into a higher role, then good for Connor Timmons and good for the Maple Leafs been Kyle dubas is still going to continue to the work from the market. He needs some more significant upgrade. Well, in the other thing, Drake's story Drake's just a touch one thing. Aside from cap issues, which are the same for almost everybody, is there at 50 contracts. So they're in a tough spot in Toronto. They play her in player has to go. Aside from the money, player has to go up because you're only allowed 50 contracts. So the challenges are great right now for them. A friend of the podcast Billy garen swinging a deal acquiring some size, some personality, obvious toughness and Ryan Reeves from the New York rangers Reeves going to the Minnesota wild and I'm always amused by the opinion and the aftermath of a deal like this, right? Some who are quick to jump out and say, oh, jeez, well, why didn't our team get in on that? A 5th round wrath pick are you kidding me? Like, you know, this team could have used Ryan Reeves, this team could have used crime Reeves, and then you've got the others that say jeez, I'm surprised they even got a 5th forum. I mean, the word was the rangers were going to put him on waivers in a week. We don't know any of them. But what we know is that Billy garin is history with Ryan Reeves and obviously likes of what he's going to bring to the wild that makes it a worthwhile experiment. Well, yes, I mean, so you got to remember like last year when the wild took that big leap. One of the things they were was a great strength that theirs was, they were really hard to play against. They were physical, they had a forge line while they had that third line with greenway, Eric snack, and felino and they were good and their big, like they're big. Then that branded douhan was on their fourth line. He's been hurt. Foligno's been hurt. Green wave's been heard. They lose Ryan Hartman, who had a great year 30 plus goals, but just an agitating guy to play against. So they're clearly trying to build again add on to that type of game. Now, I've seen Reeves a couple of times this year. And I don't know exactly if the pace is something that's favorable to him. And the other thing is probably find less and less volunteers to fight them. Many guys that are around that are going to want to even attempt that. So I'll be interested to see where what Minnesota does. I mean, they had a little cap space because they cleared some out. They've got some guys that hurt me in particular could go on LTIR. They lose Tyson jost on waivers. So that's a little more cap room. So they're kind of moving some deck chairs around to see if they can find a stride a little bit better. Let's go to Vancouver. All right, we have spanked and kicked around the Vancouver Canucks with good reason for much of this podcast season. But a nice win last night against the defending Stanley Cup champion avalanche. They scored two in the third to beat the abs, which is significant because the third has been a weak spot for the Vancouver Canucks this year, full horvat with another big effort. Second in time on ice only behind Quinn Hughes, Oliver ekman Larsson, I mean, he seemed more engaged than we've seen him. Patterson, he looked good all around. I mean, it's something, isn't it? It's something. It's something that the market can kind of just relax a little bit. I mean, it's not to say that they're heading in a completely different direction for the rest of this year, but it's something. It adds, I mean, they lose to Vegas with another two goal lead on Monday, and then they go to Colorado. I mean, that's a pretty tough week. And you got to give a check mark here to Spencer Martin, who is the a picked him up off the scrap heap and Colorado last year. And he was in the American League and they gave him a late season chance and man, all credit to him. He took the ball and turned it into an NHL deal. And he's been terrific this year for them. So you go into Colorado and I know Colorado's banged up, but by the way, their record with the amount of people out of the lineup is really quite remarkable. Like significant pieces out of that line. But Vancouver goes in and horvat's had an amazing start. This is the Patterson that I thought I saw in his rookie season, the one that reminded me a little bit of Pavel datsu. And they get a win. And Matt, just to breathe a little bit. But how about this? I'm looking at the stand. They got 17 points. In Vancouver. You know, it's been, you know, it's been a tire fire for parts of the season. And Edmonton's got 20 points. They're not far from what a playoff spot might look like. How's that all going to play out? I don't know, bull horror bat's not going to score like this the rest of the season. But if they can, I mean, the whole key for them is can they find a way to defend well enough? To let their offense carry the load because they're going to score. They've got enough people to score. I was going to touch on this and insider trading tonight being Thursday, but out of respect to for a solving in his passing, we've just decided that we're going to focus on the tribute on TSN. So we're not doing insider trading, but curious speculation around four. And we understand that, you know, because there hasn't been a contract extension. It seems relatively quiet on that front. So that in and of itself fuels the speculation of trade, but I know Vancouver wants to keep him. I mean, they recognize his value. They can see the type of character he is and to your point, okay, he's not going to, he's not going to go wired a wire with this level of offense that they've seen enough to know that he's in the interesting and needed peace moving forward. So we, in the media, I'm not looking at you ray. I'm looking at me and looking at others. We get a pump the brakes on the speculation just because the negotiation hasn't concluded to this point. Maybe even as in started with any sense of vaguer to this point, it doesn't mean they're shopping them. I know they're not shopping them and I know they want to keep them now in Vancouver. So I was going to share that insider trading. Let's see what that I mean every day until there is a contract done or a trade made. It's always going to be talked about. I mean, the one thing I would say you have to be careful of is if you don't think your team is good enough and you sign before that to 8 years times 7, if that's the number, then you've basically got the same team and you've just paid for that more money. And so you have to find a way to change the team outside a four vats deal. If that's what they're going to do. So I mean, it's amazing to watch. It's like he literally scores every game. It's unbelievable. I know. So I'm happy for him though. You know, he's one of those guys, I'm happy the puck is going in for him when he's playing this well. He is. He's done everything. Everything that he could ask. Everything that they could hold for. He's done. And where that leads, you know what the next couple months are going to tell us. Yeah. A couple more in the headlines. Then we'll move on. Your thoughts on Dallas, man. I mean, new coach Pete deboer we know is an excellent coach. No surprise there. Goaltending has been good, the old cliche, their best players, are contributing like top players do. That's helping the Dallas stars. But have you seen enough to know they're going to be a force? Not just in the west, but maybe in the league this year, right? Well, I mean, Jake gottinger gave you no choice but to stand up and take notice of him last year in the playoffs. He's going to tremendous player. Jason Robertson's on an amazing run right now coming off of 40 school year. What about Jamie band kind of finding a little jump in his life? Yeah, it becomes really interesting. A different style of play, a different approach to the game, much like Bruce Cassidy took a different style to Vegas, Jim Montgomery took a different style to Boston, Pete the board took a different style to Dallas. Sometimes it's just the right thing. How about every year, every June we go to the draft or we watch the draft and nameless kids outside of the first round. We don't know who most of them are. They just get drafted and they're like, oh, I heard that guy's a good prospect. This guy's a good prospect. The Dallas draft with mero hey skin and also included Jason Robertson and Jake. Same drive. Not bad. You know, it's almost like the last draft that Al Murray had with the Los Angeles kings, his parting gift was Audrey Cooper and Jonathan quick. And so these guys get drafted and you don't know how they're gonna turn out ridiculous. And here they are. So Dallas is Dallas is starting to make me go jeez, I gotta start watching them a little closer. I got a game coming up in Dallas, I'm really looking forward to it. All right, thoughts on Shane Wright. I mean, we pay attention nationally because the kid goes forth overall and was touted as going first overall until he didn't go first overall, but he scores his first professional goal in the American Hockey League as the Seattle kraken scratched him for 5 times, which then allowed him to send him to the AHL on a conditioning stint. High school, too, but really, but he'll get loaned to team Canada. Yeah, you'll get loaned to team Canada for the world junior championship. And then you wonder, well, what happens after that? And feel bad for the kid because he's stuck in that gray area, right? You and I are strong supporters of the Canadian Hockey League. We want the best available players playing in the. But there comes a place where player needs to also push his development. And with all due respect, the Kingston or if he gets traded in the OHL, I honestly, it doesn't feel like that's the right place for Shane Wright, but the press box in Seattle is in the right place for Sheen right either. Well, I know that's not the right place for sure. Every time I hear a coach or a manager say, oh, you know, he's learning and practice and being around the NHL team. The only thing that he's learning is that his paycheck is way better. Because you can, what do you think he's thinking, game after game after game? He's just finished practice. He's just finished the board 8 skate. He does a bag skate. Then he goes to the gym. Like this socks. I mean, I'm sure I'm sure those kids love being in the NHL, but it sucks. It's just not the right place for me. The one thing about the NHL that is always kind of interested me is that they're not very open to exceptions. It's like, this is the rule and there's no exception. Like, what if each team was allowed one player? Just one. To jump to the American League. Not for shrouds in case the team has three of them, just one player. Kind of like the exceptional status and in major junior hockey. What if there was an exception that a drafted player could go off your salary cap? Just to open up some options. So she writes stock in like he's going back to junior's not the best place for him, but I do know sitting around and not playing that will get old in a hurry. No doubt about that.

It's time to wrap up another week on The Rain rigs hockey podcast with a good pal Chris Abbott, who joins us twice per week, brought to you by botana dot CA now available in Ontario. Here's the catchy tagline, but tano, the game starts. Now, we will get to the NFL game of the week, but it doesn't seem nearly as important than what's going on in Qatar. And that is the World Cup of soccer. I mean, I was in a pub with a couple of buddies watching Canada and Belgium on Wednesday. So I'm now hooked into it. So we're going to spend a little bit of time looking at Sunday's game Croatia and Canada because according to John herdman, Canada is going to F Croatia. That's what's going to happen. Does that work into a betting line in some formats? Well, I tell you. What did happen is the betting lines came a lot closer for Canada after their performance against Belgium because I don't care who you are. Nobody saw that coming. We tweeted a little gift that reminded me of the movie miracle, right? When her Brooks says you don't defend them, you attack them. And that's what I felt like happened in that match on Wednesday afternoon. So what has happened is Canada is now come a lot closer to Croatia. So yesterday I bet Canada to win or draw, which was still almost two to one odds. That's now minus one 33 to do that against Croatia. So let's say there's some believers already in the Betty markets with this Canadian team, which us Canadians knew, right? We knew this was a pretty good squad. Maybe didn't know how well they'd show out on Wednesday. No, I agree, except I do worry that you got to be careful with emotionality of what we saw. I'd say the two things I worry about is that a Canada played their best game and they can't get to that level again. I mean, I thought they were amazing. It was so fun to watch them and they literally had Belgium on their back foot. Most of the day. That's worry number one. Number two is teams that seem to do well in this tournament get better as the tournament goes along. And I think Croatia will be better in game two than they were in game one. I mean, historically as long as I've been watching it, that's kind of the way it seems to go. But I'll tell you, I just thought it was amazing to I was in a large at air Canada flying over the Germany here and man, the place was going wild and, you know, I had to leave the kid with a boat 20 minutes left at all, I couldn't believe it. I had so we saw a good portion of that first half, which was so great. Abs, like run us through some betting options here. And if it's not just, if you can be specific to Canada Croatia, if you want, but World Cup in general, I mean, it's virtually endless. Yeah, I mean, that botanical we've got like 500 markets per match available as you get closer to kick-off. Even right now, with the Canadian match on Sunday, there's 300 options. So some of the ones I ran through the money line and all that that we're used to betting the over under, which has both teams to score at minus one 15 or you can bet over two and a half goals itself at plus one 12, or you can bet both teams to score and over two and a half, both teams to score or over two and a half. But there's one that I really like, and this is how granular you can get with it. What will happen first in the match, a goal throw in at minus one 82 all the way up to a goal scored at plus 4900. Free kick, goal kick corner kicks. You can bet which of those things will happen first in the match. Method of goal, whether it's a shot, a head or an own goal, a free kick, a penalty. There's so much out there and it's because, you know, the Europeans who really put sports betting on the map. This is their big event. So if you can, if you can, if you can dream it, it's up there. So what do you got, Drake? What are you going to take? Are you going to have one? I think both teams are going to be. There's going to be mine. I think both teams score. I disagree. I don't think Canada scores. I think Croatia wins. I think it will be tight as it was against Belgium. They missed too many chances against Belgium. And I know nothing about soccer, but even I was confused. While Alfonso Davies took the penalty, in a I'm yelling at my TV, where's Jonathan David, along with all the other soccer experts in the pub. So I'm saying that it's Croatia. Ray, I'm wondering what the real analysts that we care about for this sport had to say out of your house. Incredibly sour, so excited and so disappointed. It was really cool to watch, watch my boys be excited as they were. The 12 year old Reese, one of the great negotiators on the planet, somehow he stayed home. And I mean, the game was 11. There's no point going in early. And then, come on, mom, dad, whatever. Wreath was at home, Riley, Riley went to school, but they left school at 11. And the academy went to the cafeteria to watch the game. So I'm sure they had just good for them. Yeah. What should happen? I was really happy. Even non soccer people. Non sport people were drawn into the enormity of this and the excitement of it. It was an amazing day. And there's two more cracks at it and you just

"Great spaces. And I mean, he had a game against the penguins recently. I think it was the first time they played at home. Where he set up about three or four absolute great 8 chances for his teammates. And he's been showing a lot more of that than I expected in the early going so far. And I mean, if you're going to combine that with all the other things we love about his game, I mean, that's going to be an unreal offensive player. Can we get into the other things we like about his game then? Yeah, these are all the these are all the glamorous. You got to mention the shot, you ought to mention the passing. What's your other favorite part about his game? Well, this is going to sound absolutely ridiculous, but I've been I was very familiar and I watch Austin Matthews grow from being a rookie into being who he is today. And I see a lot of a young Austin Matthews and Matt Benes. A lot of it have just how good he is in tight spaces, especially in the defensive zone. How he's always looking to make a play to break the puck out with control. I think it would be so easy. I think we talked a lot about this a little bit with Shane Wright, how the NHL is in a developmental league. But it's really nice that the crack and are kind of letting veneers make that occasional mistake in the defensive zone. Just by also allowing him to make those plays, which goes, which goes to set up more rushes and more offense for the team going the other way. And you can make those little plays. You can he's not afraid of evading a four checker on his own, or even using the body. He's not that big of a guy. That's I think the big difference is Matthews is a much bigger player than he was at that age. But beniers certainly doesn't play like a 175 pound player.

"And then you wait another 15 minutes in real time before you get to do that again. And then when a young player struggles in that situation, the veteran coach goes well, see, yeah, this guy just wasn't ready for this. He's got a lot to learn here. And he does, he's not deserving of being higher in the lineup because look at what he's doing with his current minutes. And it's like this feedback loop of coaches getting exactly what they ultimately want because they don't trust young players. And so they'd rather play guys are more comfortable with and they are more familiar with. And so they put them in these situations where it doesn't work out. And especially for Minnesota, they've lost these three games as we talked about. They have a higher aspirations for Seattle. It makes absolutely no sense to not be playing all of these young players that you have that you've drafted high in feature roles, just to see what you have in them and your only task for this season is to get the most out of those players so they can actually be difference makers for you by the time you're good. Yeah, and I guess there's a difference like I just looked at our Marco Rossi's most common pairing or line mates rather are Connor to war and Brandon duhan. Where they've been horrible when they played together, like the underlying numbers are awful. Well, that's clearly a sign that Marco Rossi shouldn't be playing. Again, coming into the year, everybody was like, oh, you know, maybe you don't give them every shift with the guy, but you give them plenty of minutes with Carroll capris on them, feels like those two are going to take off together. And dean Evans is like not so fast. We have big plans for him and Brandon Newman instead. Yeah. I truly don't get it. But yeah, I mean, it's kind of an unenviable situation in the sense that Shane Wright is pretty clearly last year there was the knock on him heading into the draft was all right. He's kind of bored in the OHL. So he can't go to the AHL, so what's he supposed to do this is I don't think playing 6 minutes a night horse sitting in the press box is going to help him develop his skills. So I don't really understand it. For me, it's weird because don't do anything if you were a coach. Developing one of these young players and seeing them progressively get better would almost help you with job security because then that's something you'd be able to point to as like, oh, let's see. Look what I'm doing. I'm guiding this young player along his development path. I'm getting the most out of them. You should keep me around because as we go through this rebuilding process, this is what I can do with all the young guys. That's what's something that I would be thinking if I was one of Dave hacksaw or one of these coaches. Yeah. And like I said before, I think keeping him around for the 9 games and then sending him back to Kingston. That makes a lot of sense because you get to say like on paper that makes a lot of sense because you get to say, this guy's a future of our franchise.

"So I think they're going to be fine for the next little bit here. That's a lot of bad teams. On their on the horizon for them. I am curious to see how this works out. I don't know what Brandon mantra status is. I imagine he won't be out for that long, so that'll help a little bit. But there's kind of two workarounds that I thought of here. One is basically just straps Azure barkov to whatever bottom pairs they have. And just treat him as essentially their number one defenseman. What I guess Gustavo forcing is an out there, which would be interesting. I kind of see no reason why he can't just play 25 minutes is almost their top defenseman. But the second one is and this is kind of that math you could chuck chaos effect. In the to start the season, they are playing the least amount of time at even strength. They're pretty much leading the league in terms of power play time. And leading the league in terms of time they're spending shorthanded. They're basically just playing large stretches of these games on special teams. And that almost behooves this group, right? Because it's almost easier for a mark stall to just kind of get settled in his own zone on the penalty kill and blog a bunch of shots and not have to do anything. It's much harder when all of a sudden the game is flying around at 5 one 5 at even strength and he has to move up and down the ice. So not that you want to be playing shorthanded, but it almost it benefits them maybe more so than other teams to just have large stretches of these games played at special teams where they can almost kind of pick and choose who's out there more so. Yeah, and as you say, especially against a lot of the teams that you just mentioned that are on the schedule coming up, obviously the lightning is a tough draw there. But those are maybe a teams that apart from maybe the senators, you would say, oh, they don't particularly scare me on the PowerPoint ebit. Yeah. All right, that's all I got on the Panthers here. Give me your next one. We have room for one more before we go break. All right, let's quickly talk about there's kind of like an epidemic right now. And I feel like it's more pronounced than usual of rookies barely getting ice time. Shane Wright 6 averaging 6 33 a game.

"Two exhibition games were a little underwhelming for him, but he, you know, the two rookie games in Buffalo, he was great, the two scrimmages here with our team, I think he led our all players in scoring chances by a pretty decent margin. So he's been very good in parts. There's been a little, obviously, inconsistency in terms of how it translates to the exhibition games. But we've got to be we got to do what's right for him. And if we do, we said when we drafted him, we weren't looking for the best 18 year old. We were looking for the best NHL player down the road. And I don't think we do that without making the right decision for him and whether it's the popular decision or not. We're going to do what we believe is right. So that was, that was another lightning bolt of your initial initial foray into the managing was most people thinking that Shane Wright or maybe it's and terrific kids at the top of the draft and in Montreal at your first draft and maybe take us through that thought a little bit that landed you on slavkovsky as that's our pick and there's, you know, there's going to be noise around that pick. Yeah, I think there was certainly going to be noise and I knew Shane, who he gone to watch him play in Kingston a couple of times too during the year and I had the opportunity to see him quite a bit just because I had a son that would play the same age level as him. So dating back to world selects to the Canada games to under 17 worlds to the U 18 world. So I felt like I had a history automatic decent history on Logan Cooley nemesis where two others that we had less of a book on. So we watched a ton of video, we went over to Helsinki to watch. We brought a lot of people over so that we invited a lot of opinions into the equation and even those that weren't traveling and we asked them to watch on video and from the get go we told them we're going to make what we think is the right decision. And if that's not the popular decision, that's fine, but we want you guys to give us your honest opinion. Now, look ahead to beyond the exhibition season early in the regular season. I assume like every other general manager Kent, you know, you're open for business, right? I mean, if there's a deal that makes sense, if there's an aid sensitive player, a prospect that makes sense, then you're going to make that deal. How active are you in terms of a trade market right now? I always try to stay in touch with the other general managers understand what they're looking to do and share. We're looking to do. And if there's an opportunity to do something that improves our team, we'll do it. I think at the end, and we've talked a lot about it, Darren is we're trying to make sure that when we make a move, we can make short term moves here with this organization. But we want to make sure the moves that we make for the most part, something that's long term. That it's not a filler, but rather a piece for the future. That doesn't mean that at some point we don't have to do that just if we feel like we're too young or inexperienced and we need guys to have to be protected or insulated or time in the American Hockey League. So what we're using this pre season here to really evaluate, we've had some good young bees step up and play very, very well. And we want to continue to monitor it and we'll go from there.

She adds that she's always looking for female gender champions because of the difference they make for young girls. Greg Herschel, northwest news radio, and still ahead. The COVID variant currently sweeping the country has a new, magical name. I'm Brian Calvert and preventing it is harder than ever. Speaking of harder than ever, getting to and from weekend Seattle sports events is going to be a challenge this weekend. Bill Schwartz with some advice in the speak and plumbing sports update. Go early, use public transportation ride share, a bicycle, get a hotel room in downtown Seattle, any and all of those strongly recommended because of fans coming to Soto from Canada and Oregon, oh, in the I 5 revive project. The Mariners beat the Blue Jays 8 to three in their series opener, same teams battle at 7 ten tonight, a T mobile park two, northwest soccer rival matches this weekend. One 30 kick Saturday lumen field between sounders and timbers. Seattle's Kellen row expects Portland to be extra motivated after seeing the sounders raise the Concacaf Champions League banner. Just kind of adds to that, especially before the game. So we know that they're going to be fired up because they never want to see that. But it's going to be, it's going to be an interesting one. They're going to come out hot and we got to make sure that we stay focused on the game at hand and not just everything outside of it. Oh, well, rain host Portland thorns 3 o'clock Sunday, Damian Lillard staying in rip city, sources say the Portland blazers have signed their all star guard to a two year contract extension. The kraken have picked 11 young players in the NHL entry draft 18 year old Shane Wright might be able to help the big team next fall. Most of those picks could stay in the minor leagues or be packaged up in trades. Sports was for its ten and 40 after the hour, northwest news radio. Northwest news time now is 6 11, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the latest strains of COVID are making up the majority of new cases, and as Brian Calvert reports, bad news for even those who've already had the virus. You likely know someone who's now had COVID twice. It's happening due to the surge of the BA four and BA 5 strains now making up the majority of cases here in the northwest and across the country. I think if you'd asked me a few weeks ago, I would have been more optimistic about having a good July and August, but I think no one expected be it foreign be a 5 to kind of keep us at really high levels. And to illustrate how deceptive these latest strange truly are, doctor Peter chin Hong tells KR ON dot com he describes them as escape artists of COVID the Houdini and that's because the spike protein looks so different even to be a one. But Houdini of COVID. We are concerned in the United States because of the fastest spread of BA four and BA 5 it's an escape variant. It seems from the new studies that we are looking at that the vaccines are less effective in preventing infection of BA four and BA 5. Doctor Ali mokdad at the UW institute for health metrics and evaluation used the term escape to describe the new variants. It's because BA four and BA 5 invade your cells almost in disguise, which is what makes you COVID positive. Fortunately for those vaccinated or who have had COVID before, the invasion ends in the inner cell, most reporting a second or even third bout with COVID are saying it wasn't as harsh as the first time around. We are concerned that there is potentially here for another bump or an increase in cases in the coming months. Some might argue that bump is happening now, and with so many of us testing at home and not reporting our results, experts have no official numbers, but they do know that these variants are spreading quickly. And yet with all this, governor inslee recently again said restoring mask mandates is not on the table. We are not there. And we're not actually approaching that position. So what do you do? Even those fully vaccinated and boosted. You're still going to be susceptible to getting BA four and B 5. Which is why many medical leaders are going back to the single strategy that was so helpful the first two years of the pandemic. If you're going to an indoor public setting where a good mask. And making sure that we don't lose track of what circulating in our country. If you've had COVID in the last four weeks, it's likely the BA four or BA 5 variant and it means that finally you have anti COVID superpowers. That is until the next variant makes its way to the northwest. Brian Calvert, northwest news radio. And our northwest news time now is 6 14. Gets right back to the roads and the freeway

Shane Wright on ESPN, the kraken have four more picks and round two Friday night. One hour from Marco Gonzalez first pitch of T mobile park. Seattle Mariners series opener against the Toronto Blue Jays. Sports was worth a ten and 40 after the hour northwest news radio. Northwest news time now 6 11. Great Britain's prime minister has made it official planning on resigning after word got out that he knew of cabinet members misconduct and appointed them anyway. Brian Calvert has reaction from local political observers. Accusations of misconduct and lies continue to fly, even though Boris Johnson has already said he's stepping down. We asked our own political team, democratic strategist Kathy Allen, and Republican strategist Randy pepel, for their reactions. Well, nothing surprises me that forwards Johnson does. But then again, I'm glad that there's still some place where lies require accountability. Boris Johnson has a history of not telling the truth. I mean, as a reporter, he was fired for making up quotes for stories. So this is a long history for him. Both say the situation in England is much like the political picture here. The fact is that, you know, our own country has been filled with big lies and little eyes and the problem here is that they finally caught up to Boris Johnson. That and I just think that the British public is just exhausted by the guy. They just want somebody new. Kathy went even further in her comparisons to a former president. The important part here is that the Brits seem to be a little more proper about such things as sexual, I would say, miss conduct as well as holding accountable a guy who's not doing what he insists that his own citizens do. The fact is that he decides he's going to play to his own tune of being the prime minister and he can do anything he wants. Very similar to what we saw during the our administration with Trump where he just made up the rules as he went along. Of course Johnson was a transformative figure for the conservatives in Britain and that he also liked Donald Trump led outreach to members of the other party to switch them. I mean, the blue collar support the Boris Johnson received in 2019 in his victory was unprecedented. But Randy cautions the turmoil and unrest is really just beginning in Great Britain. The strange thing is, is that under the way that his successor will be picked is he will remain prime minister for potentially months while the party goes through that essentially a primary type process to select a new party leader who will try to form a new government.

"And I think that if the habs do make the selection that I believe I'm with cam, I think this is what they're going to do. That they're going to be happy with it. And the fans will too. I think it's going to be I hope that they are smart smart cam where like you mentioned and have faith in them that you're going to have to have a little bit of patience because he didn't miss that year of development. He did not dominate outright this year. He did improve in the second half. If you but if you do, in his playoffs, if you include his playoff production as well with the rest of his stats, you know, basically the two halves of his season are almost even and points per game. So that's the interesting thing about him too, is that he did have that really good pop after the world juniors and then it kind of leveled out after that. Yeah. Yeah, I think the road map for ways that he can contribute is the most interesting to me. I have anyone in this class. So that's why I would have him first overall. But Chris, you're picking second here. For the New Jersey Devils. So I'll just let you let you go for it. Yeah, so I mean, since it is the Devils and since he sure and Jack Hughes are there, I do feel like the best option for them at this point is to go with your isle of kofsky. To get the big power winger, the scoring complimentary player, obviously I have Cooley very high. You could move them to the wing if you wanted to. Maybe he would one day supplant a T-shirt or Hughes. I don't necessarily think so. Outright, it would take him a while to get there. But I think that that's love kosky is fits a team need there. I think there's been some rumblings about how the Devils may have to consider trading up if the abs are really considering slok koski is as I do believe that they're considering all three players as far as I can tell I'm probably one of the defensemen as well. And so that's, but for me Slovakia alongside a Jack Hughes or an being a top 6 scoring winger, they have Alexander holtz, I think slept Kafka is a better project. I think he's going to be a better player than holt still be, I think he's going to be a more consistent player at both ends of the ice. I like his ability to drive the net and also the confidence that he has offensively, that we saw in less, you know, he didn't get a chance to showcase the full complement of his skills and legal this year and no question the production throughout the season is concerning. But you know, one of the interesting things that was pointed out to me was to look at Andre kopitar's draft season and to see how most of it was most of his production came from the U 20 level. He didn't really produce it all at the SHL level. And then he had a big world championship and definitely I would say Slovakia is the eye test guy of the draft because you're basing it off of these pops of talent. But I think if the Devils, if it's not, I just don't think that either Shane Wright or Logan Cooley would be a fit for the Devils. He just, I think that they have those guys and you don't you would normally take best player available..

"He's going to be realistic and he's going to be looking at coming to camp and stepping in a bottom 6 role in all likelihood if he does make the team. And so with that, you know, minutes are going to play a big part in power play deployment and everything like that. And once he comes and once he hits, then the payoff will really come. Yeah, I believe he had 1.63 points per game from December onwards. I love this line that we had on him in the guide. He said, it says this year's premier play connector. An on ice administrator through which his team's offense and defensive sequences flow through. Those expectations and pressure and kind of the higher standard he's helped do is going to be nothing new for him if anything. He's already kind of gone through that a little bit. So I think he'll be well suited to handle that. Chris, I think it also helps here in this regard that even if you're a bit concerned about what the potential kind of sealing is, the habs also do have 26 and 33 in this year's draft. And I think that opens up a lot of doors for them to take some kind of higher upside gambles later on in the first round and in the first round started the second round as well and potentially take some kind of wild home run swings where you might not even get an NHL player with one of those picks, but if he pops, it could be a legitimate star for you. And so even if you're a bit underwhelmed about the upside of right here, it's they have a couple of kicks of the can as well. So I think that makes it an interesting from Montreal's perspective as well. So I appreciate everything you guys just said because there's a lot to it. If Shane writes not the best player from this draft, he will be vilified in Montreal. Not vilified, but he will be the pressure will mount. I don't think he's going to be the best player in this draft. That's just my personal opinion. And so that's the thing is that once that, they're going to need to insulate him from that pressure somehow. And I think part of it, I don't necessarily know if the right move is to play for the Canadians next year. Do I think he's NH already? I do. But I think that he hasn't taken that step to be that dominant guy. Yeah, and he didn't take games over on just nothing that I first overall pick typically does in a draft season. And I want to be clear about this. Nobody's done that this year. Nobody has done that this year where they took over. And I think it's a coin flip. I've got my tier is coolly right. So I've got right number two. You flip a coin. I'm not going to, I am not going to criticize them for picking Shane Wright because he still has a chance to be the best player in this draft..

"On LTI money, which of course nobody really wants to do. No, because you have over just, right? And your recall gets more costly from a cap space perspective. I mean, the truth is, for anyone who wants to really dive into this, just go on a cap friendly, right? They do a masterful job of detailing and explaining all of that. So anyway, you know, it shows, I don't know if desperation is the right word of the Vegas golden knights. But some creativity. So they didn't need the sweetener because they'll utilize the LTIR. And most importantly, they knocked it on off 5 million off their cap. So now McRib can go out and do whatever he needs to do. I'm laughing because this is the third time they've traded him. Yeah. And this is the first time he's going to leave. So it is creative, yes, but I think the first words part of it too. Because it is desperate. They did not have a choice. And I still think they are great jammed up against the number anyway. For sure. So it's been a busy week in Vegas. You know, husband. Again, we've got Bruce Cassidy, the new head coach of the Vegas golden knights on the podcast today. One more thought on Montreal. I mean, the draft is looming here. Have you seen enough of Shane Wright to this point? Or Cooley? I mean, go down the list. That if you were Ken Hughes, if you were management of the Montreal Canadiens, you'd be going, okay, first pick, we know what direction that we'd like to go, because I'm telling you. And I believe them. Motorola is saying they haven't decided yet who they're taking first overall. They haven't decided. Okay, I've seen more Flipkart than of the other guys. I'm talking about in a live setting. So right by all accounts is stable and sturdy and will be an NHL player for a long time with a limited upside offensively. Okay. That's my understanding. Cooley is a burner. He is fast. He's not very big. He's really confident. He's creative, so there is the hope of bigger numbers there. So if he's a different because he's a giant and he's got really good hands and like I'm looking at the Stanley Cup final the other day. Do you know how many really small players are there? None. Yeah, not many. I mean, there are, but they're like, okay, so you're going to create offense against Tampa. Hedman, ruta. They're big dudes. Where's the little? And then you go to Colorado and you can say, well, they're not very big. You know, especially with Sam Gerard there, but kale mccar is a magician. It doesn't matter how big he is. The von tapes is a sturdy guy. Bull biram's got good size. And then you've got the johnsons. They're big. So I'm less that smaller player to me is exceptional. I would have some reservation on it. And I'm talking about him being like, I don't know if there's enough between Cooley and Wright. Oh, I'm going to take Cooley over top. Right. Yeah. So Lakota keeps the guy that I would worry about because I really, if I'm New Jersey, I'm sitting there and I'm hoping that somebody else goes first. They already have enough small forwards. He looks like a Jersey player to me. I'm telling you, man, I saw a picture of him the other day. And your description is right on point..

"You can speculate all you want. I mean, maybe lean Lambert gets a crack as an NHL head coach. By the way, if I could jump in really quick. Yeah, yeah. We say Rick talk, it's going to be behind Lambert deserves a turn. He really does. Yeah. And so I think two of those jobs are going to get filled by those two guys. Well, if either guys hired as the head coach of the New York islanders, we're going to read about it. It's not going to be breaking news. The islanders will release it. From James, ripple to maldon. This is a quirky question, but it's an interesting one. Do you think there should be any other individual awards for the standard cup playoffs? Other than the cons my trophy. And if so ray, what would it be? No. There shouldn't be. Just leaving along. In my opinion, no, because honestly, would people even care about it? Or is it just another award that you got to hand out on the ice? Yeah. Before you get to the Stanley Cup. I bet the players wouldn't want that. I think that's part of, you know, big part of the history and the tradition of the Stanley Cup final. From app inside the puck. We didn't talk about this in headlines because I was going to bring up the draft lottery with you. But this is the question and we have asked Randy Riggs. Anything. And the question is assuming shame Shane Wright is taken first by the Montreal Canadiens. And that seems to be consensus. What does New Jersey do? Do they take Cooley? Do they take what's the Slovak kid who had a tremendous winger? Yeah. I mean, big dude, right? What is he 6, four, two, 20? Was an absolute rockstar, the Olympics. Or, you know, if you're New Jersey, or if you're buffalo as an example, the buffalo Sabres have three picks, right? Starting at 9, they've got three picks in the first round. Do you get creative? Do you package those picks? And trade them off. So maybe fitzy with the New Jersey Devils says, you know, I don't know if I need another draft pick, but I do need JT Miller or something like that, right? To give us a little bit more zip. What do you think? I'm going to say that chances are the Devils use in that pick is 55% that they use it in 45% that they trade it. Okay. And they can add something more immediate to the roster, which is has to be their stated goal. They're young, the youngest team in the league. And but if they were to keep the pick, Cooley makes no sense for them because they have Jack Hughes and Nico hsia. They don't need another sentiment. And they certainly don't need another undersized one. Makes all kinds of sense there. What about trading down a pick or two if you're not that sold and then you can look at Simon nevins. The check defenseman. For David, you're a show. Who's another one? And you draft a different position..

And no offense, because that's harsh word I just said, that's harsh. I played for Arizona coyotes. With Wayne, Wayne was my coach. I have three games. I have a total of 12 minutes I stuff. About the same issue. Positive notes for the oats just quickly to end this Clayton Keller. Having a really sick year. He looked awesome. There are no three on three, but he's made a big step this year. So that's definitely what they need in terms of getting a little better. All right, what do you got? All three games went on to talk to him when the final game had three dis log goals. I got a question from the only Tito says they should go one ref, no lines and take out the lines. What do you think? Just for the All-Star Game yeah, like bond hockey style the most. I think I'm open to any idea for all star. I said that last week, I think you should make it hunger games style. I think that I think it's fair to say the skills in my opinion have taken over viewership wise than the actual game. And sometimes it's hard to get the guys when competing against each other going as hard as they want as opposed to like an individual skill. So maybe not maybe the maybe the final stage is like assembling a random team on both sides where they compete against each other for the money. But how you get there should be individual skills based and if you're not good in those individual skills, you get dropped off of the first day. So you kind of eliminate them just like you would. You bracket. There's so many fun silly ideas you could do with the NHL All-Star Game in order to gain viewership. And I think that the smaller segments like the skills Garner the most attention because then afterward the guys are a little bit looser because it's not a game. It's you get the interview afterwards. But that's not, you know, they did an incredible job incorporating new things they did at the Bellagio fountain. So keep pushing the limits. Keep doing silly shit. Get more from the players behind the scenes. Keep pushing that narrative. I said this to you. I like this idea. What if they did like Olympic style? Like the three on three, what if that's U.S. three USA players? Three Canada players three Sweden players because then people are going to get behind their country. You know what I mean? And then they'll get behind their fellow countrymen as well. Maybe, yeah. Olympic style built. There's enough players from all the countries now. Exactly enough. Obviously, Ken is always going to be number one. Give them two teams in. There's two Canadian teams. Exactly. Look, you mentioned that final was U.S. Russia. We'd be like, all right, we gotta watch this. Exactly, or even USA, Canada. And then if you put the Swedes against the fins, those guys will kill each other. Yeah. Don't go harder than they do in their NHL game. I'm saying lower the case. They lower the case. Those guys have that. We're onto some nationalism. The little nuts. So the Finns hit the ruskies more than the Swedes given like all the history there. Finland, Sweden, the biggest rivalry for hockey, for they just, they always want to beat each other. Well, you live in Sweden, so do they talk shit about Finns? Oh yeah, there's always the jokes and what do they say? I know when I was in England and I was living in Wales and they used to call a sheep fuckers. A lot of trouble if I tell these jokes. I gotta go live there. No, no, buddy. I played in card if I was called the sheep fucker dude. Are you a fucking cheap? I'm a hate, you know, it was a lonely trip. I mean, 7 weeks, you know, bump, there's no bumble over there. Anyway, back to you. What would you say something to someone from Finland? Yeah, you're a you're a, you're a sauna addict. Well, there's gonna be a lot of why I'm considering myself a suite. We're better than them already. You know what I mean? So we don't even deal with them. They cheer bus. It's kind of like Canada U.S.. I don't have anything to chirp a Canadian because I already know I'm better. You guys are the ones that have the chirps against us. Does that make sense? I think 50% of our listeners are Canadian. So I love Canada. You've just lost half your EBR following. I love EBR. I love Canada. We're coming up there soon. I get more messages. Can we get the cannon? And I go, we're coming soon. Double wrist, they're coming. Thanks. Hey, I love Cana morning. I played Nick Toronto metro league. Poutine is my favorite food in the world. Harvey's no free ads is my favorite burger joint.

"That's all those bong hits. He took when you were younger thinking of all these crazy ideas. Those two times, I didn't get anything, man. The other one last kid too on Team USA. Matthew nice Toronto pick is second rounder flying around, dude. Like, plays at Minnesota's like a point per game. That's the other thing. I'm all over hockey DB elite prospects watching this. I love it. I was a little bored by the USA game. I was kind of fading in and out. I was the candidate was fucking was very entertaining though. Yeah, fuck you, buddy. Guys, can I do a name out there? So jesper wall stat. He's the goalie for sweet. And last year, I said yaroslav ask her off. Russia's the next Carrie price. I said he was going to be the next carrier price. I think he was the worst goal in the tournament last year. So I'm doubling down this year. I think just the first round pick, wasn't he? I know, I know. He picked before the draft. Maybe he was picked. I think he had a battle before. He had a bad world juniors. He's a little he's a little too active. He's very athletic, but very active. He gets a little spazzy in there. So Jean Dublin. He asked her out dead? Yeah, ask her off the bank today for Russia against Switzerland. I'll say this. I mean, Russia has just been very disappointing. They're the 5th strongest hockey nation now. It used to be like neck and neck with USA and Canada and we're ahead of USA for so long. My question is, do you have any idea why are there kids who are in this world junior that were drafted 2020? Is it you only supposed to play after once after your draft year? No, I think it has everything to do with age. It doesn't have anything to do with draft. Because ov ovi was a late birthday. So he was drafted. He was drafted later on. Now, I had another name written down this kid, Samuel Helen yes. I'm fucking butchering it for Finland. They had three goals in the first two games. He was drafted in the second round, 6, 6, another guy who moves pretty good for a big guy. He's got three tucks, as I mentioned. His old man asked you used to play in the NHL. He played with Dallas. Christian, right? No, his dad's actually named Sammy. So his name Samuel and his father's name Sammy, helenius, I think that's how you say the last name, but he was a 5th round of the flames, bounce around quite a bit, but this kid, I just mentioned Samuel. He was actually born in Dallas because his old man was playing in the NHL at the time. So another he looks like a great second round or 6 6 huge frame, some silky mitts so he's had a great start to the tourney and he was one of the guys that popped out to me, but you quickly mentioned mctavish, he looks like a man amongst boys. We talked about him. He's got like a fucking he had a hairy chest out of the womb. And I don't really have anyone else. He had the Swedish goalie. Oh, I was just saying yes for wallstadt. That's it. That's all you got? Yeah, I think he's I'm doubling down. I think he's gonna be the best goal in the tournament and I think that Sweden will win the tournament if he plays as good as he can. All right, he's gonna get the LVP least valuable player, chalk it down. So I do like Sweden, but I think in the end, it's too tough to pick against Canada. Can you call really like Logan coolly? USA 2022 draft eligible plays a development program this year. He's unbelievable. Okay, so I got one more topic. Owen power going back to him. Did you notice the fact that he's chewing bubblegum out there, just blown bubbles having a good time? Really? Love it. I have we seen it. It hasn't been common. I think it was pretty common in the 50s and 60s and then I remember back when I was watching Stevie Lama who played for the black hawks ranges, always chewing gum, always popping bubbles. Brian noon. Always chewing gum. And I think cool, especially if a couple of bubbles there is a couple gifts going. I can't wait to fucking buries the winner in OT against Team USA in the final and bowls of fucking bubble in that coach. He talks about face in line. He's talking a lot of smack for just losing last year and just not even having any sort of issue with your team thinking you're just going to get it done again. You guys are the favorites, but you were last year, too, and you didn't win. So I'm looking forward to another night on my couch where I could wear my old Olympic Jersey and go bananas on Twitter. There you go. The final score Sunday was Canada 6 three over the Czechs, Swedes beat the ruskies 6 to three and the fins beat Germans three to one and then actually Monday these scores just commend Finns beat the Austrian 7 to one Monday in Russia's up three to one as we speak over the Swiss and as your point, it's going to be tough for the U.S. to repeat when you look at Canada's roster. This is from my buddy Georgia barstool. They have 12 first round draft picks on the roster in three possible number one overall pick. So obviously Owen Powell we've just talked about taken by buffalo and last year, number one, Shane Wright is the consensus number one for the next draft and then kind of a dad is the likely number one in 23 so that the idea they have three top fucking picks overall. Yeah, it's gonna be a tough climb for the U.S. but here's my prediction, but I needed one game to catch up to the speed and figure everything out and he's gonna just fucking tear it up now. Him and there's a prediction for you. Shove that in your hope. We'll see. I think that Mattia Mitchell cake, I think he looks unreal. Do you see that goalie had been to the right side? Oh, wait, one thing we didn't talk about was a couple things with team Russia, Putin and Putin calling in that goal, it was not a goal by that high end Russian prospect. What's his name again grin? Did you just say it? Yeah, that's what I was talking about matta Mitch Kevin Mitchell. That was not a goal. But according to the rule book, I read it is dangle some compromise, fucking. Oh, so the net can come off the moorings before the puck is cross alliance. So if it was going if it's because of the defender, if it's his fault, the net came off the moorings. Okay. Fair enough. Putin. So the rules seemed a little crazy. Like once you see that replay, I actually watched I was like, wait a minute. This isn't a goal, but then if you read the rules, it's crazy as it is. It was legit. Okay, so maybe there's some logic behind it. Maybe they should, they should change it in the NHL. Now the other funniest thing other than the hologram, Tupac hologram by button was Ivan Ivan Ivan. The Russian kid Tony. And everybody thought it was a typo, but apparently someone's like, not all that's his name. Ivan Ivan Ivan. He's like the spit and chicklets. Who did that comment? He was trying to what was it? Did you do that? Yeah, when you're trying to reach the word count a day, that's. The best. These are Russian NASCAR driver. Ivan Ivan Ivan. All right, a couple more notes. We got on this..

"Kind of nice when the coaches can give a guy a tickle like that, right? Give him some extra minutes, right? He's doing all the dirty work. He's doing all the heavy lifting for our team. And you just reward him by giving him, you know, hey, here's a bowl. Take this PK on like it's your own and you'll get yourself on the ice that much more. And he loves it. So it's a win win for all of us, but certainly does is a great story and another guy. I think that has like four kids, so there must be something in the water out here in California. But you know what? It's a great story. And if you ever wanted to delve into it deeper, it's well worth documenting. I want to go back to Terry for a second. He saw that maybe the latest example of why teams should probably probably be patient with some prospects and not give up on him early. Oh, absolutely. Absolutely. You know what? It takes guys, you know, sometimes a couple of years to feel comfortable on the ice and you know do what they can do best. Again, we go back to say let's talk about drysdale, right? So if you let those really mistakes get to you, you're probably stop trying to do the things that got you to this league or to this level. So I think it's been a little bit of give and take for Taryn and the coaching staff, maybe past and present. There's going to be some hiccups in his game. You know, he's going to probably try some things to puck management, probably isn't always what the coaching staff's looking for late in a period or late in the game. But you don't want to stifle a guy that's as creative as he is. So you've got to find that happy medium. And you know what, for the most part, his pauses far, far outweigh any negatives he has with maybe trying to do too much. I love getting to ask you about certain guys in this roster because the same way you mentioned people don't talk about Fowler and a lot of the demon. A lot of the ducks don't get a lot of love just because of where the games are played and because of that like mason mctavish this year, right? He's an 1819 year old kid. He's been up and down a little bit, but what type of player you look at? Like, what's the ceiling and what have you seen so far in terms of playmaking ability and offensive style? Well, you know what? MACD, I was fortunate enough with to have him at the under 18 the world championship. And you know what dominated there, right? Yeah, he certainly did. And you know what? You know, the talk was Connor bedard and Shane Wright and rightfully sold, like those guys, I think this is Shane rights here to be drafted. He's probably going to be maybe considered what number one overall and certainly the next year, but art. But you know what? The guy that led the team kind of said jump on my back in a way we go with, right? We had him, you know, in all situations he was center iceman and when you get into a tournament like that and somebody's able to elevate their play that's telling you something about he's a big game guy. So he's, you know, in that tournament, I mean, he looks like he's about 32. So it was a matter of he was more mature than all the other guys he was playing against. And in here, he still fit in. He's doing a good job now. The thing with Mac tea as you guys know, you know, he's he can only play 9 games and we've got to make a decision as he stand or is he is he going to go back to junior. Now that's still up in the air, but his play is telling us that he warns being on the roster. He's fit in. And he has been in and out of the lineup. He did get injured to go down. He had a two week assignment down in San Diego and from all the reports I got there. It was, you know, he was the best player on the team there. So, you know what, you've got a guy that's in my opinion, you know, gets you can't play forever, so who's going to be that next guy down the middle that plays hard, physical, kind of a smash mouth game, where, you know, he can beat you with some skill and some talent or he'll just basically run rate through your smack in the mouth and put it in the back of the net. So, you know what? He's an interesting kit. And I think that he's going to have a hell of a career. Like, I'm sure you are familiar with a lot of the roster coaching against him in the halbert. Who is really surprised you may be as a person as a player as someone you didn't expect to jump out at you like that. Well, there's a few of them. I mean, again, you know, the ducks, they don't get a whole lot of love and nobody's talking about them. But I got to go back to cam Fowler. I did not realize how good he is. I didn't. First of all, I didn't realize how big he is. I thought he was a much smaller guy. And his efficiency getting around the ice is incredible. Like he can skate. Great vision and buck distributor. And the amazing thing about him is, you know, there's been a lot of nights where, you know, we've wrote him hard, like he's played a lot of minutes, and he's one of those guys. He comes back to the bench and, you know, you think, oh, man, we got a bypass, and we got to sit him out. And you know, he's ready to go. So like his engine is extraordinary. And I think if he was in a bigger hockey market, probably people would be talking about him more. Now, the other side of that is cam doesn't seem to be one of those guys that needs that adulation. You know he's quite comfortable just being in the background in that supportive role..
