"It's only a theory. It's not fact that the game had gotten a lot quicker a heck of a lot more talented and there was a European influence and that European influence. I think found its way into the mentality of the American prior the American Canadian player and as a consequence of being competitive for the same job and the European players coming from they were bad more talent so integrator migrate so I think that migration of them coming over we force ourselves integrate and enforce our game on the European play. It was vice versa and as a consequence as we well know I mean I played with five Russians in in Quebec playoffs came. I mean. Their suitcases were packed. Ready to go back to rush on every playoff game and I'm not joking. There was some great ones. There were some great ones. No I'm not saying there's a whole you're saying you know. Are you saying because they knew there like? Oh my God this is just GonNa get so much harder and more physical and I just were not training over there for this type of play. They don't right I well I don't I see again. I wasn't I'm not addressing today and so it'd be really ignorant for me to speak out of schools all right but I am speaking from a platform where I do understand that From word the last years that I played do nothing changed from gay one. Game One to two game sixteen in the Stanley Cup. Because you only have to win sixteen to win the Cop Right. So Game Sixteen. Nothing changed from the beginning. To the end everybody had their ups and downs. But you're only giving the gratitude of only having one game down before everybody else in the dragon called and said Hey motherfucker you better get your shit together. Last game was an embarrassment if you don't put it together we're all going to be on you and summer's GonNa be Duke and you in practice. I hate to get away from hockey quickly. But how many guys? I don't think anyone else besides you. That have been involved in a comic book character being named a few in a lawsuit. After that. And you're a Helluva storyteller so can you give all the listeners? The background to that entire ordeal while if we got a year Reader's digest for. Okay give me the cliffs notes. Here's the cliff notes on the deal. I got my mom calls me crying? Saying what the Hell Are you doing? Lending your name to this comic book and Mom. I have no idea somebody at one of the kids in the neighborhood. Come by a trading card and it was It was Antonio Twist Alley Aka New York mob box from Sicily who came to New York to take on that job and and I have no idea So further interest back called mcfun's eight dude discontinue and what is the name of the Response Respond I don't know where it sits now. For for for fifteen years it was the number one animated cartoons slash HP. Oh Slash magazine out there. It was a very or a wants to hop say. Did you have any pre existing relationship with todd macfound at all no stealing your name? Well it's not. Here's yes you know. And and this is where the lawsuit became different from when I believe he thought it was going to be. The lawsuit was not about. Defamation of character is about using my name pecuniary advantage using my name to gain an advantage in the market to make money without renumeration myself or give contract basis. Where I say your name. Got's you know that was what the whole lawsuit was about and I want you know. We want to sixteen million dollars overturned in the court because the judges instructions at the end Were contested the second lawsuit. I think it was like twelve or thirteen million and then settled out of court. Not For near that amount but still settled out as in anything winning the lawsuits. Only half of the battle as you know as the companies will shut down this long story short at the end todd McFarlane was a man about it the I came off the stand here on in the second round. If you gotta understand there was eighteen different lawyers and stenographers on that side. There were two lawyers and one Sinaga for on my side. All right if he could you could not look of any bigger of an asshole if worn out on his face. Because we're in the city. Are you got a whole smattering of of the jurors looking down on you the case before he showed up? I ought to stand slaps hockey game. He killed me after a piece of pizza astle. But here's the field. That's how he felt after we got out and I said I don't think that was the best idea. The Frick jury saw that todd was like the dressing room and he was still dominant. It was I did not despise despise taught in any way shape or not at all. He's not this was a first amendment issue where he had the right to do whatever when actually it wasn't even we weren't even bringing that up it wasn't about the. First Amendment issue was interesting case. They're teaching day and law school this day and every college right now. That is a study. Case would yeah. I would have never known. Like thinking of our will Antonio Twists in. He's an enforcer but on my count was Joe Sakic what in the in the in the magazine special and in the cartoons always obvious that it was him. Oh okay I'm sorry no wondering if he's made it very clear there was no no clear as it could be in a barrel because in one of the magazines.

"Separate warm right broad institute the year the last year I played there in in Saskatoon that was when the separate warm up got instituted for say you have a part in in that rule existing or no. No not individually. I mean there could have been a build up to it but now we never had any tussles before the game as you know there was a couple other teams that may have partaken out you know and and the year before that before. I got there you know when Ken. Baumgartner and Manson decided to take the opposition's NAT and bring it down to their end during warm up. And you'll Charlie bomber. So bomber goes over. Their branch starts drinking their water and nobody dared go across the red line to get their naturally warmed up without a net. Alabama's drinking their water. Charges got warming up two goalies. Now may have been a build up to the following year when we had shoot separate. Moyal warm-ups of God. That is good. I I watched you fight a lot. Many moons ago. You look like a guy who always enjoyed fighting that accurate. Well I mean You know a little heavy in the drawers. Yeah I was excited and I enjoy doing and a lot of the guys in this game in the past and then I played with a bunch. Those guys you know. They were filling a role that they found necessary to make a living and on graduated to that role with the exceptional skills to go with that man. They're they're talented guys. But the fighting at got him to the platform that they were on and as a consequence it really wasn't a primary platform and guys would throw up before the game. They be nervous. You know two weeks before you know play in so and so and rece- leafless she goes. We're not talking sleepless Seattle with Meg Ryan sleepless with Nick. You know from New York at the Deli kind of thing. It was not a comfortable feeling for them and I didn't have those feelings. I really enjoyed. I enjoy doing it. You like talking to tie Domi about it as well. And he didn't get nervous where the the opposite of what you are and how you just described. That's how I was. It didn't come off as genuine all I I do. I love protecting my teammates but I did enjoy the fact that I was going to have to risk my health while doing it and there was an element of fear. And you're one of those guys that yeah but you have talent on top of it so you had to sure about other things you know when I said the last the hired hit man my good man. I was a grocery stick for most games. Yeah I separating making sure that the forwards didn't get mixed up with defensemen they always knew where to step on the. That's where I go ten ten career goals. I have great. I can remember all the mind. Can you remember all your guys? Yes yeah the same. What you're saying I understand but you still think of playing the game. Sure you still had a shift play right so you know a lot of admiration the guys like Bob Woodward who were a measuring stick. You know every guy that came in the league. When I was playing I was the measuring. Stick Guy Play. Twenty minutes a game not only had to do his job as you know. Make sure everybody keep straight but he was playing with. Stevie why stop it? I mean you gotta be hands down for me. L. THAT'S A. It's an admirable. His fighting overshadows how good of a player he was all star. Game Eighty eighty eight. Yeah I mean come on. I mean what really overshadow guess made them and the drugs and the alcohol at the end. But you know again dealing with those demons. I bring him up for a reason that Bob enjoy it. Yeah I think he did to a point because at some point you know you're not getting. Oh you know wrecked after the game like Johnny. Is I play with Johnny and Quebec. I I was in Quebec that summer. I stayed there when he died. Johnny had an incredibly hard time doing that. That role nervous throwing up before the game. I mean all he can do just to get it over with you know because he was a mess. He was Iraq and that ultimately ended you know his career and his life because he went to other things to satisfy. That demon was all right so coming out of junior. You realize how you're GONNA make a living in the NHL. You are the hired gun. What was it like going into camp at your mean? I'm a man I I'm guessing. I'm imagining that training camp. You might have had ten to fifteen fights with my first joining capital no. Let's hear not a whim. You gotta be kidding me. Throw this out of women swear to God all right so being chased her coming out of junior in Saskatoon and Brian siders. I is I ten years coach. First Year. All right so so. That's you know he was the hell of a player in the scrapper himself. So know we all show up. We have a meeting the at the Holiday Inn and Clayton. And it's the student the auditorium and all coaches come up and do their speeches right at the close out. Brian Sutter Brian. Speech was it. Was this simple if your goal score.

As doing the the scrimmages as you know every training camp when he got the scrimmages and he got four different teams and taught on the other side. I shift out there. Go right after todd. He won't fight. I do the shift income back on. He goes back out. I chase after Taty won't fight Brian. Solder you could see the smile on his face. Patty God love and be passed away but he was you know. Patty was one of the guys who got me draft and sort of bobby so the third shift he comes on left my my my gloves my helmet and my stick on the bench and I went to center ice and I started doing the chicken around the center. Ice Innocent Training Camp Okay. He had no this talk hockey news. It was like everybody was like who in the fridge. Is this idiot at center ice doing the chicken? We what he had to come. I mean there's no evanger butts we fought I got cut over the eye. He took he took a few but it was a great fight. Nobody claps so he goes to the dressing room and I go to address now in the same.

White a black tape over your eye white white. But here's the thing. He went to hospital leaders and I went back. And finish the scream. He's already got the job. Don't get me wrong. He was much more talented fricken hockey player. And I was the guy had great wheels and he had hands you know neanderthal from Prince. George I gotTa make my mark up by the way the only guy wearing still wearing steel blades. Steel Blades. Everybody there was right. When plastic and steel made the transition remember? The first part was still correct. I was the only guy. How heavy were your skates? Who knows it didn't matter honest to God? The first training capsule in there after they rearranged the entire training camp so me and taught them hit the ice together again. You did you in chase going. That Cam Want No. We are on the same. Okay okay the next year. Now I spent the entire year in Peoria which was it was an interesting year. Only because you know it was I didn't play I played. I don't know how many thirty six or something like that. I had three hundred seven minutes and I mean my goal was to fight every game twice a game now until things fall apart but the second training camp we show up and chasers on his team now with todd are I are for shift out we're lined up by an R. N. And I said we're going says no we're not. I said you got no choice. That you saw the puck drops. He swings his stick. The two men knocked my head off. I ducked chaser comes from the other side. He's on his team. Two by fours over top of the head and now it's a five five. Those are my two opening trading gifts and St Louis. Stay that year because talk with suspended for ten games for jumping on the ice at the end of the game to quality. Now you gotTa understand this National Hockey League. All the players stand by each other. Yeah one game to play to get his bonus one game last game all right. Somebody came off the ice for him to get the shift at that time in the League you had to get. You'll touch the ice. Get Your Game. Play right still. Yep So yes yes. Oh he jumped on the ice and he got in a fight and whatever and he got suspended for ten games for for extra man or whatever and then I got my opportunity but you know the guys were in full support and unfortunately like you guys upstairs. You know you're sitting the damn dude for the you know does battle for you all year and you're GonNa for the whatever the bonus was you're gonNA sit him for the entire game. Just in case something happens bullshit especially. I've heard so many stories of even coaching becoming aware of guys bonuses. I mean Tyson. Nash told the story of when Quinn Villanueva Plan on my twenty five minutes one game putting out there on power play because if you got a an average ice time bonus he would have made an extra hundred grand or whatever it was so that's weird that they an that's an opposite story where that's the first one. I've heard you've gotta understand that going back. We're talking eighty eight eighty nine ninety now. The Solomons owned the The team at that point so from Solomon you could probably get the attitude that was adopted from upstairs. Solomon Salt anyways next. I want to go back to Peoria.

He's going to be able to two three weeks with a shoulder injury. shifting Vancouver more injuries this the worst part of doing this shoulder's been so far too many of them as a that's another example of why. I think that they need to shorten the schedule. Skyser dropping like flies right now. It's it's tough to see men in the latest Vancouver Brock Besse. He had a rib cartilage fracture.

I think he'd had a few coming in. We talked about it when they ended up signing them. Because I think I thought if he if he could be healthy no had no moorhead problems that he would surpass what his contract was but man. I just hope that he's not walking around in a fog all day. I mean if if he can never play again at least get enjoy time with his family and not have to be. I mean remember. We talked about savard being in the dark room for a while. I don't want I just fuck sometimes. It's just not worth. Yeah absolutely so. Let's talk about some fun stuff and I think Monday nights Tampa Bay Colorado affair that was about as fun as it gets One might even say that was a potential Stanley Cup. Final Preview Nathan MacKinnon man. He he well they call the reverse hit. I thought he was almost more stealing himself with a hit from Andre Polite and Basically his McKinnon's helmet office faced. Mckinnon did nothing dirty but it bloodied pilot and his teammates. Try TO COME TO HIS RESCUE RYAN. Graves may try to defend. My McKinnon was a whole little donnybrook. Just some fucking good old fashioned fun busy. I know you're excited for it we're called. Oh l. guys when we walk in the Locker Room. Would you call us an Gel guy? Yes everybody say. That's hockey though dude. Book does the best if I could summarize that whole play. That's hockey right. There and I fucking loved I loved it for both sides. Fucking rights McKinnon's allowed to do that. That's a reverse hit. You're coming into my fucking territory but a fucking bend those knees bitch. Let's go it's fucking man's sport and I loved it while fucking Polat someone who got the Shit Sandwich on that one. Sometimes guys things are happening so quick on the Ice Tampa Bay guys might not even seen how it transpired how it was the reverse hit but your initial reaction. When you're you're man goes down like that you think maybe fucking something bad like something dirty happened to him so I don't know if that was the case in that situation or he just felt that McKinnon didn't have the right to reverse them which is insane but in the moment he felt the need to go after Mckinnon and then and then fuck and writes for graves. Not only does it chase off the first guy but the first guy ends up dipping off and then another guy comes in at him. I don't I don't know the names I don't I don't need them. You can watch the clips for yourself. But but that's that hockey is a man's fucking game and I fucking love that Shit. That was look at the crowd. There's some passion into that and these are teams that know the top dogs. No Pun intended. Nate Dogg I I loved it. Who Do you think of when you think of reverse hit all for the for the penguins? When I played there in the minors was Tim. Wallace Alaska Peter Forsberg. I Love Wally. Wally Griffin Alaskans Alaska's finest What a hit. That was the overtime it was overtime winner right by Kucherov. I mean he burst away. God He he is Noble Bentham. But still you see that guy take off and no one was quite sure if it had gone and right away but that if that is the Stanley Cup final that will be one of the best ones we've ever had and what's amazing about it too is those I mean. Of course Kuch in. He's a proud guy to coach. Wants to be the best player in the world. But it's a cock fight and Sodas McKinnon right so this is a poke your chest out competition like let's call. This is the the juices are flowing so I loved it. What a great entertaining game for. Unfortunately boy dog ends up on the the Shitty side of that one yeah. I think they will. The teammates probably saw the blood. I never they reacted to that because honestly when I shot in real time I thought well maybe he got it like reactive elbow may because I saw polite bleeding but you know obviously upon replays. You saw that wasn't the case so that's probably why they got pissed off when they see the blood anyways. The avs lost the game. Tampa Bay extended their winning streak to eleven games to set a new franchise record his. How temper is okay The bronze of thirteen four into twenty twenty and the lightning still gained eleven point John During that timeframe I know they had a couple of games in him. But that's still has health toss bombing Boston's playing good hockey in there. It's not like they gained like five or six on him. It's like a huge jump while playing. Well I did you say Boston's nine own won. They're lost ten. Was that what the record was? No no I was saying the in county twenty twenty thirteen four to an in that timeframe the light and instill gained eleven points on him. I just didn't know what your last ten status well because I could've sworn I was online. Actually they're they're nine and one in their last ten so that's even crazier you guys have been going on fucking run themselves and they keep getting Tampa nipping at their heels. Got Bite my tongue every week on this show. I'm kidding me. You know 'cause I mean 'cause the Bruins I always talk talk about the Bruins. All time allegedly allegedly. I don't think you have no I di- obviously don't it was early on with me and we will probably a little Boston Center and we started. I mean you know we were to bash. Holstein the PODCAST. I would be Special thanks to Bob Your Underwear Jettou special. Thanks At hothead Hugo for pointing out that Steven stamkos scored his four hundred twentieth career goal in Colorado how appropriate for twenty and Colorado shadowed so that. That's why we have our listeners. We Love Him Also pig news the avs also lost migo ranting and after he crashed into the end boards tough to see those men. Those that never never good.

"For their quick actions. On February eleventh. Our family has felt the support of the entire. Nhl Family in the city of Saint Louis during this time we've all been greatly comforted by genuine concern on Sunday evening. I returned to Saint Louis M. I am on the road to recovery. My wife and daughter is a forever grateful for everyone support. We will continue to have a positive outlook for future so nice to hear that J goes home. He'll be resting comfortably. You know who knows man you know who toy medical sciences today? If he's back skating again you never know but either way we're happy to hear he's home moving onto us some other games. Tuesday night man. The leafs They're struggling they got pummeled by the penguins. Five to two and it drew some interesting comments from various corners of the hockey world Starting with their coach he said you have a team over there in Pittsburgh that's built championship culture and what's acceptable in. We're not there. That is something the inexperienced but we also have some very experienced players that should be more than capable of leading the way now. You can look at Toronto Ross. Then there's not a lot of players who qualify as very experienced and eleven producing and I think he can deduce he's talking about on that team I mean he did not name anybody but what do you think I mean. It sounds like a shot at of hours if I mean I don't think it's fucking nod. Spats he's yelling. Making seven hundred degree granted Japan. Aaron you guys you know. I don't like hammer on young guys and and even really anyone the they're just not getting done right now I mean Christ if you want to know how deep down would feel if I if I cared enough if the leafs one like as if I was like a hardcore fan. Listen to dogs rant. Oh that's one of the best in the business and he's got not only credibility but he's got fired too I mean. Do you want to just play the clip? Yeah fired up. They have no identity five on five. What's their identity? Pittsburgh is they got crosby. Malkin's who are elite players and they work and they get wins and they do the job. Toronto doesn't work. They don't work. You don't out hit you. They don't do anything they can score off the rush they can score in transition they can score on the power play. But what is their identity? They don't they don't really have one. There's playing to win and I told you yesterday about my dad's comments saying they're paid to win games. They're not paid to go out there and throw their sticks out there and say maybe I'll get two goals and you'll get fifty. They're paid for wins. Then I know the alumni. It's an honor to put on a jacket and go in there. But it's I talked to them when you go in there and the one thing that they hate saying his man. They're they're talented but they don't really work like their coach. He should be held accountable to. He's goes on there and he liked the accountability. It's big boy stuff. You can go on there and say these guys suck tonight. If their goal is to be embarrassed they picked out too but he let's go out there and play like that they'll get dummied six or two and they'll be awful in their own zone and the next day there's Lady Gaga playing on the music system and they have skill development changed the way they play if they're going out there and continually playing like that. I don't get it well. How many times can you say about a professional team? They suck in their own zone. They're talented enough to play better than that. You played on a team in Minnesota with zero talent. Just a hardworking bunch of guys but when you went into Minnesota unlike Atlanta who just sucked from top to bottom. You had to beat them two to one or three to one. That's the only way you beat the Minnesota while but the coach decides how the team plays and he. He wants to be accountable after the game. That's great call out the players. Go ahead but the way they go out and play on the. Ice House a ball bench one of those guys that make eleven million bucks if Mitch. Monitor's going out there. Being an idiot with back passes and stupid. Plays turning the PUCK bench him. Because that's you can't win games like that. It is not a skills competition during any shell gained time. And every coach. That coaches in the league. They say one thing competitively. It's a competitively marred to win hard to win yesterday like that. Let me tell you this free. I know every single listener right now is disgusted as I am that we haven't had him and he hasn't been on Spin WanNA rants. I'm in that is like it's it's not easy to go on rants people think. Oh Yeah you red sox. That wasn't a great one. Why don't you try doing a rent? Old Dog just went off script from his heart and unloaded on a team. He was paying for season tickets but but he he's talking about alumni and he's talking about I I actually don't know this but is he from Toronto Police Fan. He's he's from King City. Okay so he's doing a great job describing what you know who else called this a long time back the human buffalo himself lovie member what he said side and at the time it Kinda. It didn't cause it didn't cause like an issue at all because people said he was able to discuss it. 'cause that's exactly what the capital dealt with. They did this. It was it was. Although the capitals were winning president's trophies and then flaming out in the leafs are so inconsistent and he talks about their own end to go watch. Crosby's goal from he'd gone three assists while four points as soccer looked. Really good on that line too. Yes soccer's wife had a funniest tweet. He there was a tweet. That said fine finds you someone that looks fine. Someone looks at you the way that Soccer looks at Crosby and then she re tweeted and said someday it's slow motion after gives them like a tap and and he's just so genuinely second sit on the bench and I'd be like Oh my God sit. Got Me a second but go watch the goal in look at the defense it is so pathetic and it is guys just not bearing down and when you talk about veterans like who you think. He's talking about the virus because if you look at two virus contract right now it's a little scary right. Yeah ten million dollars and you know. He's he's not young and like so. You see this team not winning and Morgan Riley being don't that's brutal. That is such a big loss. So you can't just go about and say that this is their roster but every teams battle injuries. I just If you're a leaf's fan you gotta be disgusted. And I'm wondering like now you hear do busting on fire do but say party. What was it it was fired? Babcock like is it so as long as they keep. Do players not really catch much of the blame there. I feel like the young studs they don't really catch or they haven't until now. I'll say to be fair. Though they had they have produced. I mean Matthews. But that's the point it's the other side. Dude right right. Well then. Yeah it's like well if you don't also don't have any more money to spend anywhere else you know. Maybe when you do you bring the wrong people in I mean. Yeah there's they they gotta figure things out. And that's a lot of pressure. I mean even even knee lander like me landers being underpaid at this point. Now for what? He's what he's done so far this year so I don't know they gotta figure it out though and that was an unreal ramp by. Oh Dog I don't think we really need to say much more. Yeah we can move right along Connor mcdavid he had his new documentary. Dropped by what was the Tuesday night on? Nbc Down here. I believe NBC. I believe it was all over the continent candidates Canada as well. It was called whatever it takes. It was about his rehab from his knee injury and whether debating whether or not to have surgery and it was such a huge decision especially when you consider the long Sad history of knee injuries the NHL potential. It was pretty good stuff a little peek behind the scenes that you got a chance to look at it what I know. I was mesmerized. I thought it was so well done some of the things that I learned from that I mean talk about the shock of that kid and I was very surprised. She didn't get emotional and break down a little bit. When even it recap and I guess now being healthy it's a little easier but just thinking back a- emotional watching it when he's sitting there and they show him with the trainers from Evanston td fours unreal doctrine reducing that documentary Greek either the Edmonton training staffs top notch. The best Quick and and You know health wise the best but they're hold enemies in his arms last game of the regular season and he says I broke down and you can just you can get emotional watching it and especially remembering injuries and thinking that then he had to deal with questioning twenty two years old. Am I ever going to be the same? And not only that but trying to make the decision of surgeries in two days. Like I have to get another opinion. And then he gets so he gets the first the first doctor and we won't explain the whole thing. The first doctor tells him Are you need surgery right? I think the guy the guy said like you need surgery immediately. He didn't get a second opinion. And the guy says Yeah well I don't think you need surgery. I think you can rehab. This will then you bring in Mark Dr Mark Lenzi whose genius he lived with him and he had never even rehabbed injury. This severe without surgery he used. He was used to rehabbing with guys. Post-surgery ho shoulders post needs immediately. Getting them feeling better quicker getting into things with Rehab wise right away as opposed to waiting but he said there was times that they're sitting in the waiting room doing an MRI figure. Do we get the surgery. And this is now sin so the whole thing you have to check it out. I cannot I cannot describe how much of a freak of a human being Connor mcdavid is and I think by watching this. You'll kind of realize what I mean and I'm not just talking walk. Player won't parade. He is he's not from this planet and the drive he shows in this video and how much he cares and and the fact that there was cameras following them throughout the throughout all this. This stressful time is his agent Jeff Jackson talking about so. Just check it out. I'm kind of spoiling. I feel bad but Biz. What else did you have on? I was just going to say what's crazy is the behind the scenes. All these people that have went to school and learned how to Rehab and it's it's a whole nother level. Now he just watch it. It's all around great job by the video crew who filmed it who edited it tended attempt.
Penguins Beat Maple Leafs

"Co Emma? I would really be tempted. If I had the last name home on a name, my kid something interesting grand, slam Homa game winning Homa. It's a home or somebody tweeted me Okla Homa. You have a last name Homa. You just got to take advantage of that. I think all right here we go phone calls. Chris Knicks Ville, not happy. He's an islander fan and he expected better. How are you? Chris welcome to the fan. We're hanging in there is well, first of all the honeymoon is in there is everything else. You know, the smooth. So once interviewed on this station Joyce Randolph. Yes. Back in the day. But anyway to get too happy gays, so it terms of the aisles. Well, it was a great season as much as watching those first three games of that of the Carolina see series. It's probably the three most frustrating gains. I've ever watched and succession in my life of any team. I for it literally made my hair her, you know, what the team gave everything they got. You know, I can't count was you know, clearly bettering game for the first three gains. It was a game of inches. I mean Lord knows they hit what I don't know. Ten twelve. Yeah. As you know, it often is that's why hockey so hard to predict and why the lower seeds often do quite well. Art was was disappointing in the fat. And the fact that they were they really got disappointed. I guess was that they knew that they were not a high scoring team. And that maybe they would need help in the postseason offensively. And I guess that Lula Morella would think about trading pick and trying to get more offense in here, and they stood Pat. And in the end they didn't score enough. I mean, it's a sales that they didn't give up eight. They didn't give up Jack. And they were down two games to none. I mean, I know ate. Well, Lou the go harder to Shane and stone of Ottawa. But those are the teams I mean, you'll see in the next year. So they gave up a lot to get those guys. But well, I think the future. I don't miss only with this team. I mean, obviously, you've talked about this all the time in terms of, you know, one of the chaps going to do what are the Mets do a new Heike? Look, I don't have faith in the people calling the shots. Here. I say in lieu and try, and I know they have a number of free agents. But they have a lot of good young players have more coming. They're gonna make the right decision. That's fair. Thank you good about where it in one. Last thing. I get it. And I get the economics and I'm not blaming anyone. But boy, I wish those first two games or ethical team Coliseum with this Calvin John Carolina's fence men play with you on this his whole career. And so this year that I saw this in the paper, we caught a break that the first two games where balk I don't think about that. I don't think there's any doubt about that. It's just a different world there. And unfortunately, they also had a which is a double edged sword or a dark lining to a silver cloud because they had success there and had been used to winning their the way they did in the first round and the atmosphere there, then it had to be whether they intended it to be or not it had to be a letdown to not have that building for those players in that organization because they had had great success there. People were very enthusiastic about it. And that was a Downer in and of itself before they even stepped on the ice that they weren't going to have that environment again, and they just had it like they didn't do anything wrong. And now they have to move out of the building where they just beat the Steelers the penguins twice. So that part was unfortunate for sure key port is our next. Stop Joseph you're on the fan Joseph. Chris our good. What's up? Quick shout out. You have a really enjoyable show. Listen to and enjoy listening to thanks quick question. If you can define the the line, it's wean being over dramatic and not letting your good players play. And actually be concerned about this. I, you know, my personal opinion is is that if you're going to have a good player, you gotta utilize them as much as possible to get as many games one as possible you wanna successful season. And that's what that's what the fans want. Right. A little rain. I don't know. What points? Do you say you're being over dramatic? Exactly. Right. That's that's exactly right. That's what makes opinion. Joseph. You use stated it. Well, at what point right at what point? Do you say in the eighth inning? We've got to put the tarp out here. It's not safe at what point these say. Maximum security fouled. Got to put him in the back of the pack at what point you say. He's at forty six degrees. Is it forty three degrees? Is it thirty nine degrees. If it's raining out is at ten o'clock degrom started. If it was ten thirty or eleven. I mean, that's what they get paid for. That's what this unpire got paid for. That's what the stewards got paid for yesterday. That's what we spend our time talking about. There's nothing wrong with it. Unless you're not open minded enough to take in all of the data come up with your own opinion. And then realized that your opinion may not be shared by many others or that. In fact, it is just opinion our struggle is that we like to say things as fact we like to say. One idiot. Not putting the tarp on the field. One an idiot to to. Put maximum security at the back of the pack. How did they miss that? Call now occasionally like the New Orleans game. Okay. We're all on the same page. But that's rare most of the time they're up for debate. And I would have said if Chapman came out tonight. What is he thinking putting Chapman back out in the ninth in this weather absolutely would've said that as I said about the ground the other night. But it's just my judgment by opinion. I'm not giving up a month or two and be second guessed forever. I think in single game in April or may. I'm just not. I'm just not. But you might does that make you wrong and me, right? Ecorse not. It's a point of the bait. It's what we do. People take it way too personally. And they get way to upset about things that, you know, in the end don't matter much, and by the way to that point. And then we'll back to the calls. They can do whatever they want. You have to understand that you're not going anywhere. The people watch Kentucky Derby this year will be watching it again next year. The people that went to the Yankee game and rooted for the Yankees today. They'll be back to root for the AKIs whether they resume this game or the game's over. Whether they don't think they should have started it because it was too bad conditions, whatever they think they'll be back these leagues and these sports organizations because it is a hobby of people is a choice not a requirement. Have you were they want you? They're not afraid of losing you. This too shall pass for the people at the derby. Whether you agree with the decision or not this too shall pass people. Like, the bet they love the spectacle of the day. And that's it. It's a tradition, and they are going to come back. So what seemed like big time decisions because it seems like it should be are not. There's no other Kentucky Derby that you're going to go to to replace this one for you. You may not have liked what they did. But they're not losing any revenue because they made one decision or the other if MAC security had one everybody would be back. Maximum security did not win. Everybody will be back. That's just how it works. Let's go to Richard in Manhattan who is next on the fan. Hi, richard. Chris talking about hockey teams that way you remember Toronto when they had that tie Domi. Yeah. Man. There were villains. Flies in the seventies. That was traveling Risley shout. Yeah. Anyone? I Rueda the rations against that. When they play. Jones tie Domi. Bob pro Burt. Tony twist. Wrestling show, say right? Talking about the weather. What about this morning yet? What twenty thirty thousand bicyclists that one out in the rain all day? I don't understand that. How can you stay out in the rain all day on a bike which is kind of dangerous anyway, what kind of enjoyment? Can you get from that to be with other bicyclist? Just go run. That's that's a lifetime member for those guys. Unbelievable and the race yesterday. I don't see how they can call that with that kind of weather. Anything CHAI felt sorry for those is obviously the ready officials have been doing it for years and years and years, they know what they're doing. But you would think that was unsafe. It was that was the difficult part, Richard. And it's a good point in normal race. If that had happened, it would clearly be the foul of the jockey. And you would not have the kind of ANC stand uncertainty. You have as to how much the weather contributed to the drift. Maximum-security drifted out of his lane. He's not allowed to do that. Did he do that? Because the weather was so bad that the track was so muddy that a couldn't control him the way normally would be able to or was he trying to gain an advantage. Somebody has to decide that we know how they decided spike bought the plane's up next on the fan. Hi, spike. Hello, my friend, by the way. What's the guy's name on the golf tournament? Max Homa HOA. Father's name was. I wanna go. Okay. Drumline? I go home. Okay. All right. Listen I've been playing horses. You've been on this planet. I got a pretty good idea. What would you? So you know, that comes down every time and twice on Sunday in the old days. They lay your host player. I think and they five to one that comes out that guy has a reputation the train. This got a bad rap. You know winning creek claiming loss in as a second choice. Twenty two field. Come on. It goes to the front something with cockeyed idea. Number one. Number two Sayas has a reputation of being a little risque yet. And then a battery is ago he made that dangerous situation. Listen, if you bet the twenty and then heritage he was already been affected that was in that race. It was just a bad scene. They tell you route twenty two minutes, I've been through a million dollars. And that thing have come down..

And after every one of his fights they play on the loudspeaker. Let's twist again. Let's twist again. I also hold on. There was like a tag team and Saint Louis there too as the animal Brett Hull era. Right. So one of the best names ever for a fighter in hockey. So you had Tony twist. And you had Garth butcher Garth butcher wasn't really a fighter though. But like to me. He would drop them out. You wanna talk about best fighting to talk about Stu Grimson and it called reaper. Yeah. So I mean, that's pretty bad ass name. I know we could go down this poll. I don't but I'm into the second part was question. Today's NHL. I would I think I would take Ryan rates because he can score you a few goals he can play the game. And that's what you have to have. Now, there's no guys are just on the team justify it. You have to be able to play a little bit. Promo diving got twenty four season program quits goes to I think right now if you're asking right now, it's like Ryan rooms or the guy like Tom Wilson on Washington who's playing under top. But can also fight. So. Yeah, there you go. Little hockey chat. There. We've had quite a bit hockey chat today. From Zachary k who wins in a fight shuttle, flat nose or pulse. Mac. I mean, come on.

I you're you're you're you're not you're on different fucking planet at this point. It's like being put an insane asylum because I guess not whether you're going to go crazy, it's how long it's gonna take you go crazy Jesus. Well, let's get away from all. Well, the best part is they brought me to live at the rink biz. So when I get there the guy brings me to the ring, I think I'm dropping off. My gear we walked on this long dark hallway, and there's like two giant wooden doors opens one and there's another wooden door staring right at me again. Open the second one there's a massive hot water heater that in there like the rings hot water, and then a couple of beds and a TV, and he's like you go like it's the Ritz Carlton or something like proud of himself to give me this room. And I'm like holy shit. I'm getting shanked tonight. You tip 'em. Or what dip them knowing Kip funk. If I put my wallet, he would've tried to take the rest of my money. That's right. That's right. Good move smart guy. I wanna talk about your your rookie season. There's your first year in the NHL ninety five ninety six played three games. So I'm assuming that you didn't have rookie party in that period of time. When was in fact, your rookie party the next year going fifteen games or was it the ninety seven ninety eight season. My official official rookie party would be my third year. I think ninety seven ninety eight year why? Yeah, I was up. It was in Vancouver, buddy. Okay. Let describe the night. Well, Jeff Courtnall was on the team. And obviously he's a veteran from the connects goes and knew the city pretty well. And I think he might even live out that area still, but he said it up, and I swear to God, I can't remember the damn restaurant. We went to and this probably because I was already blacked out at that point. But I I was just of the belief that night that I'm paying for this anyways. So I'm going to get the most fucked up out of everybody here. And it was great. I mean, we went out and then. You know, some guy's obviously, we we free included the what's frigging strip joint. They're not made brandies. That's it. Yeah. French name Calgary. Forgot about that one. So you've heard how. But so I've heard allegedly, you know, but yeah, we went over there. And I forget exactly how much it was. It wasn't that bad though. I because the year before I was up for it. But I didn't have to pay and the guy's got soaked. Young got soaked for like twenty five grand each. And this is not the time. This is back. When guys aren't making rookies aren't making seven eight nine hundred thousand million dollars rookies are making like two fifty at the time. So those bit of a kick in the nuts. And I remember some of the older guys saying, you know, my you that they weren't gonna run up the time just tap some fun whatnot. I just remember giving a blank check to Grant Fuhr and saying just let me know what the amount is. But you know, it's out some fun. And it was awesome. I loved my rookie party. You played on that you played on that team. Tony twist. Was he was he the toughest guy who have played with a one of toughest guys you have played with. Twister was scary, man. Like out of all the guys I played I played with some really tough guys, and certainly respect the job tremendously. Just because I can't imagine having to do that. I mean, it's just the tough job. But twister was a whole other level. Like he got to the point where when he stepped on the ice is like roaches when you turn on the light wherever they scatter like he got on the ice, and even tough guys scatter guys new and guys still fought him from time to time like they were not excited about at all was the on the gymnasium was that ever talked about. You know lightly discussed, but do you ever show?.

Well, Mike Peluso is definitely one, you know, during our interview, I remember him looking at me, and he started crying, and it was as far away from me as you are right now just a couple of feet, I crying and telling me how he tried to kill himself. A retired of seizures in the medication took almost seizure. Medication? Poured into a bowl news gonna take all of these these medications and overdose. And the only thing that stopped him was his dog coming down the stairs. And the realization he said that if he killed himself. There'd be no one to look after his dog Coors. I'm sorry. I took the pills put him back in the bottle. He did say my life. There's there's no question about it. And Mike story sticks out for couple of reasons. One just because of how sad and alone. He is, you know, midway through the interview. Again, he looked at me and said, I'm sorry. I can't remember your name is. I don't remember guys. His name's as you introduce yourself today. I'm sorry. Yeah. No short term memory since he left, the NHL historians. Just been such a tragic one. He was in a fight in one season in December in Quebec City against a Kubeck Nordic player named Tony twist, and he hit his head on the ice, and he was conscious. All the way down right there. He came to and was taken to the locker room and he dressed, and he got in the shower, and then he got dressed, and then he undressed not in the shower and that went on for four three or four times and the one of the massage therapist for the team noticed this and said to the trainer, what are we gonna do this?

Even after this episode a neurologist Senate report to the team. And said listen, Mike and play hockey again. But he can't keep having repeated head trauma. It could cause more neuro cognitive problems. Well, Mike never saw that report. And he went on to have more than one hundred fights in the NHL after that report was sent and in testimony the general manager for the New Jersey Devils was asked about Mike. Why would you let him keep going back on the ice? And his answer was one that we hear throughout hockey Lula Morello said, well, I asked him if he was okay to go. And he said he was okay..

"I just don't feel that there's support for that theory. I think that if you follow the rules of the game. If the referee is enforcing new rules. If the league is forcing the rules. You don't need enforcers to be the policemen for the league, the argument just doesn't hold. But sometimes one expert's opinion clashes with reality. Here's criminologist. Dr Victoria, Silverwood an enforcer. Derek boogeyman Dugard. Statistics can't really tell you something because there's no control great.
