"Whole year to play together and they're going to be consistent you this chemistry and I think even getting just Craig Smith gives you that consistency where you're not, you know, definitely slipping pieces. You can for sure say coil and Smith will beat you out of the whole year and you know, I'm on the left side all that stuff. So should be very interesting. And as you said things are probably going to accelerate it would be awesome for the Bruins to get Taylor Hall just from a Content perspective just from how interesting. I think it would be dead. I think for fans, you know you fans listening. I mean, I think it would and I don't I don't have to sell anybody on Taylor at all. I feel like I'm selling people on the idea of Taylor and all but I really think it would be so interesting and I think it would reject this Bruins team over the top potentially much better chances against Tampa Bay and that second round especially if you're losing Tyler Johnson. Yep, kind of a big thing. I was most reasonable wage and like these movies are going to be happening now. Oh, I forgot by the way. Yes, Torey Krug was right. I mean. Sweeney was right choice was right to say screw, you know Tori kroge like that. That is that the ultimate the ultimate take is people who are like, I know the animal Antics won't going Frank Frank Smith or something, but he's not Mike Hoffman. I'm like, he's better than my coffin you idiots. Like Torey Krug is a trainer. If you can't beat them join them like that is dead. Funny how people being like groups of snake toward Kruk. I'm done with Tori Cruise have a contract off. He has you dummy what dude he's a human being. He's trying to make money the bruising even offer anything let the man be I hope to work groups was a hundred goals and went to Stanley Cup every year. That's st. Louis directions. Yeah now so much same style pizza now, that's so that's the one try. That's a real tragic novice. He has to get that bootleg ass pizza. That's funny that like him in Robert Thomas were tweeted each other. Yeah, just like that hit was so busy and just so humiliating for Robert Thomas. Like that's not something that you can just like tweet away. That's like funny now like you you you got your manhood taken away from you on that head like you aren't a u are not a human being anymore. Yeah, but definitely interesting but lots of crazy stuff Connor before we go. What are you working on it yesterday that people can look forward to yeah. We're breaking down kind of gone. Sweeney's press log. Friends from from Saturday afternoon. We're looking ahead of what kind of the next steps are this seems like every day something new is going to be happening. So who even knows what's going to happen later tonight in terms of how this affects wage offseason because I think you see from the Craig Smith move in in, you know, if you're looking at the lens of just this contract it's great.

"This is where you are going to, you know, live out your life for seven-plus years. I'm very surprised that he didn't consider Saint Louis before and it sounded like the decision was made. Holy on winning and to me I look at that and I say were you really ready to go. Louis? Like are you sure you wanted to do this? Because part of me thinks now, I'm not saying staying with the Bruins, but I do wonder if you done research into Saint Louis cuz didn't sound like you did. It did not sound like they were ready to go to Saint Louis and it just sounded like maybe I'm wrong and it's his decision, but it kind of sounded like it was very impulsive not leaving the Bruins. I think that was always off like we all said he was gone but choosing st. Louis sounded a little impulsive. I mean, it's I think it's one of the situations right where it seems like it wasn't on his radar. He mentioned that and then you look at the options, right? I mean if he prioritized winning and getting a fair deal in the Bruins game, let's say they offered that six six and a half million dollar contract. I'm what are your what are your other options that you want to go to Detroit and make sense from the perspective of you know, he knows Jeff blashill. He's from Michigan and makes a lot of sense but like that team's not turning things around and not you know, another year to you want to go to Columbus who has a bunch of cap space but that team, you know could be good. But like, you know, it depends on how you like Tortorella. It's not a big Market. It's not the way most happening place in the NHL and not saying Saint Louis's we already have a friggin podcast or we roasted Saint Louis for the first ten minutes of it. But and even st. Louis, you know, it's his team still on the up-and-up. I mean, they've got really good pieces but joining Bennington didn't really have a good year. They're going to lose Fortran jalloh. They signed that horrible contract for Justin fog that France why they can't keep the trans hello, but you'll get all those options and if the Bruins have that offer still on the table, I bet he would have taken it because it seems like regardless of who signing contracts. Everyone's either taking short-term deals or they're taking contracts phone number. Over the market value like we were pietrangelo signs with you know, he might just end up getting eight million seven and a half million or something like that when he could have probably gotten 9 and 1/2 thousand and ten and a half if there's a normal year and I think for you know, people are saying that Torey Krug, you know, he turned down that, you know, 6 6 and 1/2 6 years 6 and 1/2 million dollar contract last year..

"Podcast. I'm Aronofsky alongside Conor Ryan of Boston Sports Journal Connor. And do we have anything to talk about today? I don't think we do. I really don't know. I mean maybe in just I don't know the weather the weather's nice outside 77 talk about. Yeah, I don't know. I watched you watching anything on T recently been to The Sopranos on HBO show or something like that or more more A Better Call Saul Now, I actually haven't gotten around to seeing better car a big Breaking Bad Guy, but it's haven't gone around people said it was kind of slow down to get around. Okay, you know will cut the shit. Yeah. No, there's there's a lot, you know, there's a lot going on there's quite a bit. And so by the way of Shadow me new new Mike. I hope you have some better or look better with age. Right in front of me now. It's not off to the side. This was $60 more. It's like supposedly the best Mike that can be plugged into your MacBook. So I was like hell yes sure, centers are thrilled shake it off, but I sound like an angel sound like first sex with Jesus. Yes friends a lot of stepbrothers references by the way on Twitter lately we get to that second. Yeah, so lots of stuff Bruins free agency the first half of day one was nothing there was nothing. I mean the TSN show they were grasping at straws to talk about you can only talk about or kind of Carousel enough. Yeah. They were they were really doing projects for the 2022 Olympics are projecting the Canadian teen. I was like, they're going to start doing like twenty twenty six to one point of they're going to keep on rolling with it tough tough day for content for the rest of the NHL. But Kevin Miller re-signs wasn't that big a thing but then our antennas popped up when the Bruins moved Sweeney's presser back from 5 p.m. Until 6 a.m. Saturday at 1 we thought it was much bigger. They have reportedly offered Taylor Hall a short-term three-year deal. But Torey Krug were all probably settling in for a nice fun Friday night. Whatever you decide to do whether you stand whether you go out and social justice, whatever it is who's probably cut in half like ours where when it around 8:00 Elliott Friedman tweeted out croup Saint Louis down all wet. What so what was your initial reaction to that? Very interested to hear this? Yeah. I think when the news broke that he was leaving. I don't think I think pretty much all of us were in the same boat that we thought he was going to go elsewhere and get a significant deal Saint Louis being the one to offer him that that came as a surprise. I think I don't think I really expected them to sign him considering, you know, the fact that st. Louis seem like they're still in the running for pietrangelo. They had money already tied up with a guy like Justin Faulk dead. So it came as a big surprise and I think even pietrangelo was I think pretty shocked by it too. It seemed like he was going to make the rounds and then probably come back to Saint Louis and I think as it progressed, I you know, we went from a situation where you know, Krug leaves and most of us were expecting to do it. Anyway, so you already kind of you know half way out the door of like, you know, congrats congrats improved for, you know, getting a you know, getting the bag and earning that contract that he definitely deserves been here that we wanted to team like Saint Louis which you know, I'm sure sours a lot of Bruins fans, but the fact that it seems like the issue is with the Bruins just.
Boston Bruins' Torey Krug Signs 7-Year Deal With St. Louis Blues
"National Predators forward Craig Smith to a three year deal. The 31 year old scored 18 goals this past season. The next slightly see Torey Krug on the ice will be wearing a ST Louis blues uniforms. The former Bruins defenseman has signed a seven year deal worth 6.5 million a season. He says the Bruins last offer was about a year ago and was later pull The Patriots practicing

"NHL free you no one wants to touch over thirty free agents wants to touch these older guys who want rightfully. So their money potential once Roman Yosi, like money through what's a ton of money Taylor halls get a presumably want a ton of money. But if you if you haul on a one year deal. You know try one year deal hell yeah. I mean Jesus that's legit. Top Six guy problem. With Hall is he's not your top left wing that's marshawn and marshlands making you know six, six, point one to five I think which is. Still at a half not the best message though, right then give an outsider like hall eight, million potentially and having to your second line left. So I think they preachy I think David great to say yes to that. Creates Sediment and I think Marshall said I think the whole team would say, yes to that but I do think it's a little odd with the way the money goes. Giving him that but he deserves it also would help your team out a ton so. I think Paul would be very worthwhile investment if it short term if it's short term. Yeah. The only thing. That's like good I guess in scenarios at all teams are on this boat like the the cap is flat for everyone else I mean there's a couple of teams who like need to get to the floor Ottawa. Detroit has some cap space like so there's other teams struggling. So I wonder if the market kind of stalls a little bit because teams will be more hesitant. Obviously, you're always going to have a team be like on works going to throw money at him because we have it but I think it'll be interesting to see. I'm not sure if players will be flying off the shelves, come October ninth like right away because of the the actual cap sink flat. So I wonder if the bruins maybe have some leeway to like, Hey, like if this doesn't work out, we'll go here like if this doesn't work out, we have a back..

"Back to the Bruins. Beat down the honest media. My name is Evan Miller. I hope you guys are having a fabulous week this week on Bruins beat. We are discussing Bruins exit interviews. Usually a very depressing time because usually it's we're doing exit interviews. Then we enter into a long summer of nothing now, we're entering into a fall of potentially nothing the season supposed to start November 17th, at least for training camp. It's a tentative start which is always a very bad sign when it says tentative because it's probably not going to be when it starts and there's most I think Gamers. September 1st, whatever it is. We really don't know what this offseason holds except for the fact. It's probably going to be pretty freaking crazy. And if he's exit interviews have showed you anything. It is that it is going to be freaking crazy. And so, Ryan from Boston Sports journal and I discussed all the eggs interviews, especially to recruit because I think he's done here. But but I've had a change of heart on Torey Krug residing in Boston. So you'll get a different perspective which I think you'll you'll you might come around to you might give me crap for it. You might say Evan you're insane, but I think it's something different and I think it's something you're going to have get used to because it's going to probably happen. I know we're just getting to some other team related things before we get into the conversation. The wait is finally over and not for the first B conversation. That'll be in a second. But football is back. You might not be at a game this year, but you can still be in on the action up that online but online is going the extra mile to make sure you can get in on everything imaginable this season from game spreads and totals to team player and coaching props that online gives you more options to wager than any place on line.

"Like they they've their numbers like don't tip at all. If anything to even better. It's a smaller sample size of course, but I think when you still have those Talent up front and you give cause like a, you know, an asset roll, we're just hanging on that blue line, you know getting shots from you know, the high slot which we scored in the last regular-season game, you know, he was replacing crude. They're against Philly on March 10th way back when and you know years ago. Yeah exactly. So I think he's still brings a value their wage Is of I think you can still roll out a really strong powerful even with a gal acrylic and again, it's opens the opportunity both for him and for McEvoy to get more minutes on the power play Faith, as you know, mcavoy's you're you know future of your blue line, you know, he does a little bit of everything. There's one thing he probably hasn't excelled in yet. It's probably, you know, running a power play and it's mostly because that top palpak so good. They don't really roll them out there. So I still think you're in pretty good shape special teams wise 5.5 I think is where we have to talk about rights a little bit more dicey in terms of just who you're going to replace that those twenty-plus suck kruga logs every night. Yeah to me and you said it best. There's not a huge drop off on the power plane. I don't think there will be when grzelcyk goes on to it. You could also you said put Mac for out there, but I feel like one thing we're going to see next year is gross looking McAvoy in roles that are more enhanced that helped them both a little bit more, you know with Chris Brown. With Krug on he would probably be the the next guy up to that first power play and you could always try McEvoy. So that's another option where McEvoy kind of gets us play enhanced. And also you bring back which charendoff says he wants to come back. I think I think that's the right move. I think just reassigning him to a one-year, you know, 1 million 1 and 1/2 million dollar deal is a no-brainer wage is no way the Bruins put him on the first pairing anymore. You should be a third parent defense and we'll get to that a little bit but then you also let McEvoy be with Grizzly most likely and that's a Duo that is great on the back. All the numbers have shown that so I think you're going to start see Dem next year's going to be a huge year for development for both of those guys you hope don't lose Chris like to Seattle. I think of crude goes you probably wouldn't put quiz like up for the Seattle draft. But all of that is stuff that we will get you in a little bit first corner. I know you want to talk about that us the great people about wage. U.s..

"A week. Oh, yeah two weeks. It was very quick the turnaround it was I remember like I covered when I was good old days of high school sports. It was a you know, soccer player but like in regular happy, they found me and he like had surgery and like took like an hour, you know, it's just like they put something like a little tiny thing through and like cauterize like one like, you know centimeter. You're all good to go. It's crazy. I think she said his surgery was five hours. Should I catch that was I think maybe using a saucer or five hours which like sounds a good day at the hospital cuz usually waiting like nine hours so but I might get some preferential treatment. I think maybe the hockey player in Toronto. Yeah might do it. But so the big news of the the exit days was you have Torey Krug basically complete depression. No chance he's coming back and feels like and you have to say no Chara on the other end of it. Who's like, what are you talking about? I gotta ask that question like 5 minutes after the game table. I didn't have my mind made up then but I do want to come back. I want to keep playing so we'll hit each in their own segment. I feel like the Torah cruises bigger. So we'll start with that Krug all year as the year has gone off the chances of crude coming back are lower and lower and lower and now it feels like it's pretty much done. Some crew wants to get paid completely once you've paid and rightfully sewn. No rules don't really have the cap space for it. There wasn't a lot of contact throughout the year. According to Krug. We'll talk to Sweeney this week. It should I think the exit interviews for management is this week, I think I'd be sweetie and nearly I don't know about it. Maybe the Jacobs too, but I don't think so much for that whole debacle. I don't think that'll be happening, but we'll see but but what did what did you make of Victoria Cruz stuff? Yeah. I mean, think when you know, you listen to them on on Thursday, it seemed like kind of you know so long You know hoping maybe something has worked out but you read kind of the writing on the wall just in terms of the fact it was no contact or kind of you know, his stance of you know, someone mentioned, you know, the willingness and maybe to take you know page deal or you know, another two or three year deal or something like that. It's let you it's been doing that like almost his entire career right like you signed his ELC then like because the Bruins in such cap hell and liquid 1415 e x a one year deal for like one point seven million or something like that like below market and then another one year deal and then he finally gets his like payday and it's what a full year contract like 5.8.

"You two million more a year than the Bruins on and I'm just throwing numbers out here for the sake of discussion to bring you back to your home state. Do I wanna go back and begin the process of complete and total reboot re-build. which is what I think. The Red Wings are in the process of trying to do here. Knowing full, it's like when Damien. Woody won a super bowl with the Patriots and went out and signed a big money contract with the Detroit Lions. It already one hardy had his ring. He went out and got his money he got paid. But. Do you remember anything about what he's career? From the time he left here and went somewhere else now. and. You would think. And if you're Torey Krug. Rain here I understand that but. If, you get your money, but you're playing in Detroit. And they're in rebuild. How do you think your life's GonNa be your hockey? Life is going to be you know your your. Financial is GonNa be great, and that's all good, and maybe he wants to go luminaires, family and I understand that. But if you're talking about hockey. It's going to be walk. East you mentioned this. He's twenty nine to be around for rebuild like data I mean. Realistically the redwings aren't competing for another four years minimum I mean I. I think it's longer so you should be. WHAT THIRTY FIVE! When the red wings make the playoffs for the first time in his time there, let's just say signs. They're right back, i. mean what's your again using that? As an example? I'm not trying to suggest that's what he's doing. I'm just using that as the example. Now. And that's the thing and so the and I still somewhere else kings or another team that that that would have potentially the money for him there another rebuilding team again this off season aren't a lot of teams that have the the cap space that are good. The can sign him. I mean. Yeah, you can go get your money with the red wings, but the thing is, it's it's his hometown, and that is home stay. Home State, so that's sort of another thing you have to consider. The Red Wings are good, historically a good franchise, so they're. Six it's his home state. I'm not suggesting. Humpty organization. That's not my point. In a in a finite hockey career that Tori crew has. How. Much winning is he going to be able to do there?.

"I I. Know I've talked to Quinn about it I've talked to or about it their relationship long time after the hit was not very good, they had fought in sixty, eight, sixty nine bobby had fought quinn end of the regular season, and they fought early the next year after the head. At Bobby by the way could fight very well. Thank you very much. It was a lot better at it than a guy his size should be. And I know for a fact that for years. Their. Relationship wasn't very good bobby. Orr could carry a grudge just fine. Thank you very much, but ultimately they did bury the hatchet and Quinn's words they did ultimately come to some sort of a relationship. They ended up serving on the same Hall of Fame Selection Committee for the the NHL Hall of fame and their relationship in later years was was fine, but you know back then. You didn't. You didn't like teams. You've got some of that now. I'll agree with you. It's not as much which also play teens as my terry. How often do you play the Edmonton oilers to? Gin Up the the hatred and the ceiling. You know you've got Canadians. You've got you know. The the maple leafs that sort of thing but it. It's not the same league. No totally isn't and also I mean. There's more there's more talent concentrated back then meets. Were Dirk fewer teams teams to a European? Player pool to draw from that you have now. It's also true also had more. You've got more players to draw from internationally now than you did back. It's totally true all right, so we're already talking about good offensive left shot defensive. Why don't we talk about Tori crew? And so. Everyone's kind of wondering about his future I saw a pretty interesting article this week from Thai Anderson. Tidal is hey. Here's a wildcard of a solution Torey Krug situation I feel like maybe people were saying this and I was missing it, but it's so funny because I feel like the only two options that have been discussed crew cab. Ben Science your long term for a lot of money or signs elsewhere long-term for a lot of money, not much else. has been talked about but Anderson. Anderson Pretty much makes the argument for. Why not just a one year extension to get through this weird pandemic time where there isn't a lot of money, the salary cap would probably say that. to me I was like. Thought about idea, because then it's like then he can get his money at some point. The bruins will probably have a higher capped. Maybe pay him that money. At some point. I just want to hear your thoughts situation. Obviously the risk that the Tory crew would have to take here would have to do with you know injury. Go out there at some time in the next year, and you bought a knee or something God forbid. I think ties. Overall premises sound. All you have to do is look at the recent contract signed by Yaroslava a lot. And, he said you know given what's going on in the world You know I didn't want frag this thing out and wanted to get it over with. I could see some. I could see some interest on both sides. Look. Let's just let's just get a year out of the way we'll keep fighting at this thing. We'll keep plugging away at it. The difference here would be if the gap between the two sides is so significant that Don Sweeney and or Torey Krug say look. We're not closing this gap. We're not close into ear from now. We're not closing at five years from now. And I'm just throwing numbers out for the sake of discussion or four million dollars a year apart. What are we doing here? In which case if I'm Krueg I go get that long-term deal guarantees me injury. Protection and things like that..

And you know the way to build relationships and you know, and the days following into the kind of Guy Kobe in terms of now I was reading stories about how you know when you go, she the aid shell in the NHL his when he was with. He would go and you know I. Think they said that you or stay goodbye to every single employee NHL Happy to be in the moment, happy to be doing this for a living and was. Put in so much work to kind of get to this level you know cargo to. A long career for himself in pro hockey and You know I. It's just a tragedy. Look at just you know guy who is, so you know you so full of energy such a a positive influence. You generally appreciated the opportunity that he himself carved out for himself and know to lose a guy like that You know twenty five years old. You know it's just got married this past summer. I mean it's just an absolute tragedy on to say the least it's tough. Yeah I know it's terrible. You know, and I am one of the things you mentioned the leadership aspect every statement about him from the Bruins. Of The instagram posts and tweets mentioned how he was such a leader, and he carried himself that way. I mean this year just socks. I the twenty twenty is just terrible, and and obviously his death has nothing to do with eerily, but it's just. It's been such a rough year, and it's only April. And you know God. Bless the the cave family. And obviously we send our condolences to just just terrible news I mean really. Awful News and you know obviously gone way too soon. and yeah. I mean really had some serious potential there and the leadership aspect was very interesting to me. Especially there. So shifting gears a little bit here. The bruins have started having zoom media abilities. They had Torey Krug last week. They had don sweeney on Friday. They had rented Carlo on Monday. And then they just sent out an email. They'll have Charlie coyle on Wednesday. So, the interesting part was they had crew. Go I obviously the big question with cruise. What's up with your contract? Where are you at right now? He says they have not had any talks over this time of the pandemic. which I guess makes some sense. There's a couple more important things to worry about, but still they had not happened. Yeah. There's there's only a pandemic going on but there have been no talks talked about how he hopes. He has not played his last game as a bruin. John Sweeney came on Friday and said we hope the same. We just haven't found common ground yet. This, feels like a little turning point to me. This feels like a time. where I have thought it's been. A pretty good chance the entire time. That crew comes back. These comments. Kinda made me think there. There's a good chance he might not be back. Did you get that same feeling from the comments last week? Yeah I think it's one of those situations where I. You know I think in a perfect world they'd both. been crew wants to stay here. He's mentioned. Multiple Times that you can take a deal.

"I think in the situation you put yourself in skins shoes. I he's an outstanding person outstanding player like I love the guy and you want him to do what's best for him obviously but you also have our teams interests in mind and myself being their long-term I was sitting next to in the locker occur. Um I spent a lot of time with them so I was definitely his year hoping trying to get him to tell me what his plan where if he wanted to come back where his head was that you know he scored forty goals last year. You know how it is. It's it's not easy to replace forty goals in the lineup at all you know so. I think is a huge part of our team so when he signed I I was super pumped. I was surprised I guess I didn't know when it was going to happen. I didn't know if it was going to happen. he kept a lot of his these negotiations. He kept a lot of that pretty close to himself and if you know skins like he's a pretty quiet guy it takes a while to open up to you and if he does he probably wouldn't even still talk about that sort of stuff so I was so happy for him. I mean he's he's such a good person and he's such a good player like he's so so important to our team team and Saas pump the yacht it I mean he worked so hard. He deserves every dollar and I couldn't be happier for the guy true anything before we wrap and we gotta go we gotta go thinks what best of luck this thank you very much. Thank you sometimes do interviews with hockey players. Elliott and that was Jijel. You need to put on your hockey player decoder ring because when they start fighting around nicknames need to figure out who they are pretty fast rhino is well. I thought it was rhino. Riley Reinhardt said it. Here's the thing so reinhardt was not at this event. Ronald Rally was and after we did the Eichel interview for TV. I had interview O'Reilly for a feature producer. Michelotto is doing and I said to him you know. I heard you had a bad performance. I'm one of these weddings. Eichel said he looked at me. Smile is is what are you talking about and finally I realized Oh oh and he goes. I think you're thinking of Sam Reinhardt so your rights as Ryan I was wrong. I Ryan I just O'Reilly was there played for Buffalo the year before in theory that could have been at one of these weddings but apparently it was Sam Ryan her okay the one thing about Jack Eichel that I'm still the one question that I'm still waiting to answer is. How good can this guy be because. I don't think we're going to know how good can be until the Buffalo. Sabres are a good hockey team. I think that's very fair because is this is a guy who takes his game very seriously. He's one of Adam oates as big as clients. He's constantly working on his game but you can see he's a guy. The losing has got I too and like losing socks and they've done a lot of it and he talked before how he's worked on not trying to show the frustration one of the biggest critiques chiefs showed the front play with break-up and he'd stare at the ceiling or you get mad and they'd skied back. He's worked hard on that but eventually you have to be in a good situation to be at your best and they just haven't been I am a hundred percent with you on this. Where are you out on the Buffalo Sabres. They got a look at the sabers right now. I have a few questions one. What are you GonNa do with all these players Yup because it seems as if right now they have too many too and get that hindsight is twenty twenty but to do you regret playing middle stat in the NHL last season and three. Should you have done something about the goaltending. Those are my questions about the Buffalo Sabres. They really like their prospect. Oh Logan yes fantastic ASPIC. They did something about the goaltending last year I mean. How many years in a row can you do something? Carter Hutton admitted to me last year that you know he didn't realize how hard it was to be a a full time starter. I think you gave him a three year deal. I don't think you blow it up after one year unless you really think it's a disaster you try again and they will. They should be better. You Know Krueger. I think he's a really good coach. I'm curious to see what happens with crystalline. He has refused to say that he's asked for a trade. The belief is he has. I just think they're going to be better. I think the whole division is going to be better like I think Ottawa chance is to be better than everybody thinks but I still think they're a bit away. I don't think they're ready to be a playoff team yet. I just think they're gonNA be better. What did you think lean is games. Sola jet as fantastic What did you make of the Yukari trade I. I was surprised at that one but I had been told earlier that Chicago wasn't high on him as other teams. Were and you always wonder under about that because they know I'm the best. So what did they see that. We're not seeing first of all they also. They have a lot of defense projects. NEULANDER BUFFALO had to to move that just wasn't working. It was time for a change. I liked that deal for Buffalo. I I really liked what I saw him when he played in Chicago. I just heard the blackhawks didn't value him as much. Is You know other teams. Did you wanted to whether he starts a season in Rochester not because of performance or not because of talent but just because of contract yeah a lot of bodies the one thing though I'm a big believer when you're on a team like that you have to show the players. The performance matters players. I've learned understand who deserves to be on a team and who doesn't seem like that where you're trying to make it a meritocracy. Things are earned not given if that kid earns a spot and he can't get it your players notice players. I'm with you on that players know camp. NPS player and the players know who who belong the players also to understand the realities of weaver exempt. Yeah I get all that. I just think Buffalo's trying to do a mentality. Tell the thing right. That's the way I look at it the all in guy the guy that lives breeze. It's sleeps hockey matthew bars all of the New York Islanders. You know it's funny. Whenever I watch Barzel play I. I always think our fridge Danny Savard. I look at Brazil when he starts circling the offensive zone scanning scanning looking for lanes. I go back to the eighties and I'm like man. This guy looks like any savard. He looks like it plays like at that water bug though still rate shied strong player player great on his skates great stride Denise Vard wasn't that guy just when he does that move where he's circling the offensive zone looking for outlets to me. It just looks like Danny Savard interview. He is very much the all in guy this Guy Eats and Sleeps Hockey Matthew Barzel Your Account Ground San Fernando Boulevard one woman also they joined now by matthew bars all of the New York Islanders and Matt. I apologize in advance. The preamble to this question is going to be lengthy. Thank the so Elliott. Let me tell you quickly with the first time I met Matt Bars. All I think the fact that you said quickly is going to be a lie. I know so grap opened up a cup of coffee here. Chill out your feet up Matt so it's Memorial Cup Windsor and with Colby Armstrong Matt's thunderbirds have just finished their first skates and media relations director says who do you WanNa talk to her like ours. All so matt comes over and you're really gracious real nice. You put up with all my stupid questions about junior hockey. I could tell that you really wanted to talk to Colby Armstrong about Sidney crosby so from US interviewing you it turned into you interviewing colby about eighty seven you play against them now. What have you learned about Sidney Crosby in the NHL only speculated about back then yeah. I think I think that's a pretty right on that one but no just planning. It's said I got to see him. Actually at the Vail camp last year that annual Brian puts on just watching him practice like this and Kinda opening to me you know he doesn't miss a pass and practice. He you know he receives every pass. Whether it's an escape or whatnot he tries to score for every single shot and usually does score. Everything shot. Insists intense from susie puts escape on pretty much. It seems so seeing that was pretty cool as a young guy just you know this guy still brings it every day after the NHL for so long three cups I mean what else does he need. He's you know it's mid August and he's he's like lighting. Everybody up uh I think at Camp so playing against some just it was fun and playoffs. Everyone knows how crosby gets in the playoffs USA people out there and it was unfortunate you know for them. Obviously didn't get too many balances that series but you could tell he was focused and intense and did he say anything to you. Enhance shake alley at the end now he just he just said. Good Luck jet get lost. I get lost. I can imagine for your definitely not the only player of your generation who admires crosby that must have been a surreal feeling shaking his hand after that series was over here. I was you know before the series I was you know always see you watch Pittsburgh in the playoffs all the time as a kid and it's like okay planning. It's Malkin and crosby in the playoffs like this is surreal. You know so I was used up. I was excited and didn't let the UH the big stage. Get the best of me I think so I was I was it was fun. It was it was a blast actually plenum efforts playoff series especially in those guys remember Keith Yandell years ago. He told told me that when he went to the playoffs the first time they played against Detroit and he said that he realized very quickly in that series Mike Babcock and the Red Wings had game plan for him and that was a whole other level says in the regular season. They talk about you for ten minutes. You know they're you're looking at you but it's not is in the play offs to realize a whole team was coming after him. He couldn't believe how hard it was. What did you find report that I actually got to meet a key the other week down in Florida this guy so funny. It was unbelievable but I'm just going on that. I mean as an opponent I thinking okay. We got seventy seven games with these guys game one. You know you want to get the kind of the fire started a little bit and but now I could definitely tell Pittsburgh and Carolina for that Carolina. Maybe even more just very very hard on me. It seemed like they just not even individually just as a team. It seemed like they just had our game. Implant figured out and really did a good job of not giving us anything out there so credits them. How much did you guys play with a chip on on your shoulder. Last season beginning of the year rates you off. Islanders basically lottery pick all that and you make the playoffs in stone everybody how much of that was we gotTa Birendra. There are saddle because everyone's written us off. I think definitely absolutely right at the start of the year we saw projections thirtieth twenty nine of US coming yeah. I was like we were such a write off and then started hot and then people were kinda still on the fence and then we just kept on going and kind of just it was like every game. There's a playoff game for us. I share and we we want every point we can get and having Burien obviously with a new defensive system obviously having two boys I share that played unbelievable for us and Kinda on everything just worked out and we just found group during the season and rolled with it and you know we got the same crew back this year so hopefully we can do the same thing what was the best motivational tactic used a boat where everybody was picking. You guys to finish I don't know it was more just kind of look at it and be like really. You know like that's where people are putting us. You know we got a lot of guys on our team to compete in that play hard and you know it wasn't just me that saw that and was kinda embarrassed. It was kind of everybody that was you know and once we started playing well and started being some good teams where we can do this. We're you know we've got a good team here. No matter what people say a lot of people have felt that Nicoletti is underappreciated and there was one game against the oilers still have the visual burned into my brain and allow allow we stay there of him gone stride for Stride Connor McCabe back that it's just like it was one of the great one of the best things I I saw that season in hockey yeah from your point. Reviewers are forward yeah. What some things at Nicoletti does that you sort of step back and say wow. How do you do that because I think he's one of the more we still talk. I still talk to Nikko that two or other guys about that but it was crazy I was honesty. Slow on the back check. We had scored on cosmic. David ended up scoring on that play. You know he did some like one handed backhand pass. The Dry said it was it was sick but I had front row seats and I was just I was almost in all of these two guys two horses coming down the final stretch. Just like nick ended up getting scored on so it wasn't. I didn't get the last laugh. Watch them with a nuclear strike tried with no. He's like people to understand stand. This guy can fly on the ice like we do little relays or something in practice and he burns me. He Burns me good and you know I always tell them like on fast and you know I'm not ah I know I'm not now and it's he's off like he's very tough to play against especially as it. You know for a guy like maybe mcdavid like myself just like to use their speed this guy..

"Rediscover it. We're not perfect all the time so I remember when Pat Burns finally won the Stanley Only Cup as the head coach the New Jersey devils in two thousand and three. He was at the podium he was saying. You guys never thought I'd win. We're all looking like who said Pat. Verne's was never GonNa win the Stanley Cup but that's who he was he was the cop. It was the US against the world mentality right so I just think it's part of your makeup your DNA and where are you at on Tori Krug the defense. He's headed cashbox yeah. He's he's a great player and he may not be the biggest guy but he's got the big. cavs avs is we learned in the interview. He's strong and he's tough and you know he's a pound for pound is a very powerful guy. The Boston bruins bother the fans have had an embarrassment of riches on the Blue Line that stretches back to Eddie Shore Yup when you think of all time hockey right Toe Blake but you look at the Ritsuo Bobby Orr Brad Par Array Boarders Dana Char are I saw it could have been if the Japanese and like they've had a great rate on the back and I can you think of a time where there wasn't a great blue liner back there for the Boston bruins stretching all the way back like they've always had someone back there. I'm trying to remember right now but who was between Bork and Chara. Maybe the only time in my lifetime that would be the only time but like high end guys like super high end guys. I like his defiance. I like Oh edgy. He is Torii crew and a good sense of humor guy too right because my family a man from Levonia caught that Ball Jack Eichel. I'm always curious. I suppose you are as well about what happens when the star player meets a new coach and maybe it's a new coach who's a little little bit different. Yes but Eichel and Krueger will be a fascinating case study this season well. They're off to a great start as you'll hear in the interview he talks talks glowingly about Krueger in their first meeting together and I heard a story and I haven't seen the player yet but I will ask them when I finally get a chance to see them and what the story was told. Why's that Ralph Krueger met at this player. I think at a coffee shop somewhere I don't know if it was in buffalo or where the player lives in the off season and the player walked out and Krueger was still there and the player. I don't know if it's his girlfriend or his wife came back to speak to Krueger and I said I just got to tell you as his partner that that was a great conversation for him. He's he's never had someone make him feel that good about himself and I'm really happy to see him feel so positive for an upcoming season so the comments comments you're GonNa hear from Eichel Echo the COM. It's I asked him the question because I heard this story right and I haven't asked the player yet so I'm not going to say who it was now. It's like the old line right like everybody has a plan until they get punched in the face. Let's see what happens when you go on the ice but at least he's trying to change the mentality. I'm wondering what Ralph Krueger's future is going to be in Buffalo. Is he going to be the coach because I could see him taking and a much bigger role in that organization depending on how things shake out. Let's here. It's this is Jack. Eichel the Buffalo Sabres on thirty one of the Pie and across Eichel shoots scores four nothing. That's Number Twenty Jack Michael Keith Berries from the Left Circle. I'm back that I have given the Buffalo Sabres the lead with ten twenty three to go in the third period his second of the they took they hit allows Darlene. Throw it out to the zone wit speed. I Don t scars fired a dark short side show Jack. I go makes it to one sabres. Save their first game. I I call on those meets. Go and it's dumbing sabre Michael Steele Ahead Eh Washington right through a cookie act coming the sick starring Jack Michael joins us on thirty one thoughts the podcast asked and jackets seems as if the majority of players that we talked to over the past couple of days here in Chicago younger players are either getting married worried or just had a kid so here's a question. Did you either get married or have a child in this offseason now neither of those okay. What did you do this off season. We weren't getting getting married or procreate traveled. I went to a lot of weddings. I went to a lot unfortunate. It's tough to say no right. I mean in your close friends. Get married get a lot of them. You're getting that SORTA. You're getting to that age where you're getting a million invitations and you can't say no to your close friends so so you got to go but it means traveling takes up your weekend. I mean it's always a great experience right but where's the farthest I actually came into Chicago and then drove up the Madison Wisconsin for one. It was a great time. It was an awesome. I had a great experience at the wedding had one in Pittsburgh and then one one a little bit outside of Toronto so you you know what we did we asked the three guys who got married hurdle nugent-hopkins and courier which NHL Player was put on the most embarrassing drunken can performance at the wedding and they wouldn't answer directly although nugent-hopkins through one of his friends under the bus all right so at the wedding us away this other summer which Taylor put on the most embarrassing performance harder throw guys ended up. I will say like not like drunken performance bad but dancing performance bad rhino was awful at Willy's wedding. He was hilariously Salihi dancing but he's just he wiped out a couple of times dance for was wet like He. He was great. I mean it was super entertaining so I'll say he he had a a great performance at one of the wedding. That's a very good answer. If that's a very good years yes that too yeah yeah. He deserves to expectations for buffalo this year. I mean personally personally. You had a wonderful season. Last Ten game win. Streak showed Buffalo Sabres fans what could be but it was also that rug pulled out from under them mm-hmm afterwards yeah. What's the expectation. If you guys going into the season well I think it showed the fans last year what it could be but I think it showed us to what it could be. If we win right what the the town would be like how the fans treat us. Everything and I think just getting that small tastes makes you want to have it all the time I mean it was it was awesome to see the way that they reacted to us doing that. Well unfortunately it wasn't sustained throughout the season. I think for us. It's it's fine in that even keel illness throughout the year. Obviously it's a long year. You play eighty two games. You travel a lot. There's Times where you're not good. There's many times where you're where you're playing well for us. Obviously we had that good stretch of games games and and we were good and after Christmas you know whatever things on row bit but it's just finding that that even killing us not getting too high after a win not getting into low after losses just focused on your next game. You're next opponent and trying to win that game and I think if we do that we'll have a little more success. I've heard that some guys have been blown away by. Are there meetings with Ralph Krueger this off season. Yeah I mean I'll tell you like I went to meet him for a cup of coffee in Slovakia and we ended up going to dinner for three hours like like just unbelievable. I was extremely blown away. That's a perfect way to describe it. I was blown away by meeting with him. He's somebody that if like if he says that he does something singer. It makes you want to do it. He started talking to me about like Bickham Yoga and how much he loved it so like I went and tried Bickram Yoga Jill like it. I liked it right. I'm I'm a sweater as is so I was hurting in the class it was it was tough but yeah. I mean I liked it like I enjoyed it like that's an example of kind of the type of personality. He has he when you're around him he makes you want to be a better person. Makes you want to be smarter. Makes you want to be a better hockey player like he's just he has that personality to M- it's like he brings the best out of people and I could not be more excited to start working within this year. You know what someone told me is like he's like that guy who is so oh positives so positive so positive and and you. WanNa say shop. How can you please this positive all the time but he pulls you in yeah. I mean I don't think we had one negative. Give conversation and the the whole summer I mean yeah. He is very positive and he's very he's very calculated like he knows what he wants to do and he does it and he has a plan plan for everything and nothing spur of the moment. Nothing's emotional for him. He's he's very thought out and I think it'll be really good for us. He's I mean. He's a leader like he's a very very good leader and I think you know he has the personality that it brings the best out of people like I said Yeah. I'm super excited for the season. How much of you've that three hour dinner conversation with Krueger was about hockey and was about other things Bickram Yoga itself. Yeah I mean you hit it on the head. If you sit down and have dinner with someone for that long probably not all going to be about hockey right so good. We talked about rock and roll. All we talk about cars. We talked about traveling. We talked. We talked about everything we spoke for a while. Obviously we spoke about hockey the team the sabers city but I mean I. I got normally well in the first meeting meeting. We had another one later but I got to know him. Well and I think he's somebody you can just talk to about anything I mean we went from talking about like seventies rock back to you know like Mercedes and travelling in Europe. Even politics like we talked about so many different things. That's a big one for you. Rate is yeah yeah yeah good taste like seventies rock so I go check out a little bit. I'm always curious how players talk to other players when they're going through something like Jeff. Skinner went through lassie's wonderful season shot the lights out as you all know. Oh and then went through that situation where we're all watching what's happening with skinner in the sabers. Here's is skinner coming back. How much would you to talk to either Jeff Skinner Jason Battle. How much would you talk to the two primaries involved in that situation or would you just say I'm pulling going back..

"Elliott Friedman is always always presented by GMC. This is going to be part of our star series so we're going to hear more interviews we did in Chicago from last week. You'll hear from Jack Eichel. Oh you heard from matthew bars all and you'll hear from Tory crew but it's been awhile since Elliott we did a news and notes segment on this podcast and always scare scare the you're going to be dating yourself since news notes happening at a alarming pace but if we can pause for a second and focus on defenseman around the NHL that have recently he done deals we'll get winnipeg. We'll get the Columbus. We'll get to Boston but let's start with Philadelphia. Ivan Provorov six year contract av six point point seven five million dollars which Elliott Friedman says a good deal for both player and team. I think that PR- overall long-term six point seven five is going to be good for affiliate and I'm. I'm always happy for someone who's GonNa make forty million dollars. I have looked at Provo through a bit of a different. Lens twice once in the playoff series against Pittsburgh. I thought there was a really talented guy there. Though that series didn't go well for Philly I thought he played his heart out and then last year when Ron hextall was fired he got a bit of a surprising quote saying of all the guys who I didn't think would be affected by their contract. Provo was on that list and people have admitted to me. Wait on on him a lot. I think he knew that I think the team new that I think is representatives knew that and they were thinking you know what we need some term here so the next time he deals with this. You'll just have more life experience to have it and I think he's a hell of a player and I think this is a great deal for both him and the flyers outside of Victor Hedman headman and you might be able to make the case for Judy and certainly Eric Carlson Maybe nobody from the Blue Line makes a better tape to tape long. Mom Mom pass like he's in the top five isn't he. He's a really talented guy and you know what this also is proof of. Is that the market for the RFID is not like the market for the RFA forward. Let's focus on another one that you wink at here and that's Akwa Renske of Columbus Blue Jackets three year contract. It is fifteen million dollars. This raised eyebrows because of as you point out perhaps just how low the AV was well. I think the thing about Lansky is that you're not missing anything in this summer when these contract disputes go on the summer. I mean you're on the beach. You've got your swim trunks on. You're on a boat. You're water skiing being your mountain climbing. Hell of Cracking Open Beers. You're visiting somewhere exotic. You've got like that inner tube with the DOC on the front of it around your it who cares if you don't sign and I think people are different. I think there's some people who are like. I don't care if I missed training camp. I don't care if I Miss Games Games. I'm holding out for every dollar. I believe I deserve and I think there's other players who think no white I it's not for me. I WANNA be a camp or I. I don't want to Miss Games. Let's get it done. I wrote in in my blog. This week that there was there was a player was signed several years ago right at the beginning of the season. I sent him not congratulations and he he called me and said I was never gonNa Miss Games. I'm in great shape. I'm not worried about that but I just wanted to see how far I could take this. I told my agent privately. We're never going to Miss Games. I get the sense Zack. Were inskeep as a kid. WHO said you know I know I'm going to camp and let's settle this and we'll see where we are in three years. Columbus will have to deal with a year away from unrestricted free agency but I really get the sense we're. NC was one of those guys who said Nah. Let's go. Let's play one of the reasons why we've talked about this. Before I think is going to be okay is that top four on the back end at Renske Jones and I think Ryan Ryan Murray's turned his career around in paired with with David Savar. I think they'll be real good. The question is we've always assumed that we're in ski in Jones are at the top pair but our savard and Murray that far behind so far is a really talented guy. I think he's one of the more underrated guys in Murray. Sorry the the questions never been talented but now that it seems fine. You're realizing you know what they got when they selected yes yes. There's no question about that. I mean Columbus. It's all goaltending right like you know the talent and you're sitting there and you know that every game that you play against them you're going to have to fight for for every inch of that ice because that's the way they play and that's the way John Tortorella wants him to play. Every centimeter is a battle so so they're gonNA stay in a lot of games because of that. They're going to stay in a lot of games because of their talent. I'm curious to see this year like he is always tortorella given Jones and we're an ski a rope like they're both rovers basically. Can you make it any more Roveri without the peninsula and there to create offense. I ran into Josh rimer. Yesterday we were at the maple leafs media digs taping something with Tyson Barrie podcast and I ran into Josh River and he said he said you watching this is Jeff does the play by play play. A guy in Columbus and Josh is obviously biased towards his dad and he said Texas is going to be a great player. we've seen hints of it already okay so what are these two contracts tracks mean then for. Charlie mcevoy so Charlie mcevoy here's the news of these deals him and his agents say and we're doing this on Friday. Provorov signed signed on Thursday night. I heard last night that the bruins and mcevoy were really working to get it done like they're in. Not You know who knows by the time this podcast the cast comes out it could be done but I had heard Thursday night. They were really pushing it and the bat to me was it would be a three year deal around. We're in ski. Maybe a little a little bit higher because the feeling is right now. The bruins don't really have the room to do six so we'll see. I expect mcevoy gets done. The person in who seems to know said he bet more on three than six and Josh Morrissey very quietly goes about his business. One of the top defenceman the Winnipeg jets on the top defenceman in the entire Western Conference. It is an eight year contract fifty million dollars six and a quarter. I look at that and say Josh Morrissey what a bargain is a bargain again. I mean it's funny to sit there and say guy is a bargain for fifty million but you know they tried to extend them a year ago and he said no he said I'll take a bridge and I'm I'm sure he looks at what he could have got last year and he got this year is being much better. That's a big win for the jets to you know the summer true traded Myers Free Agent Lion conor not signed as the tape this podcast. They have a victory. It's a victory you can say hey. We got a win here and that's a big win because I agree with Josh Morris. He's a hell ova player okay. Let's get to our star series. Now you'll hear from Matthew Barzel in a moment you'll hear from Jack Eichel in a moment as well but we just mentioned Charlie mcevoy a second ago. Let's focus in Boston. Bruins Bruins defenceman a couple of seasons ago. Torey Krug scored sixty points something that's Dana Chara had never done as a member of the Boston bruins and I believe from many turn heads if it I didn't it should have he is someone that you've pointed a couple of times a boat to get paid by the Boston bruins or someone one else He is very much a new school defenseman. Ignore the size focused on the skill in advance of this interview. What did did you expect out of Tory Krueg before. He chatted with them in Chicago. I've always been told that he has a real edge to him or he's not afraid to say things. I think you'll hear in this interview that that's the case remember last year. He got knocked out in one of the playoff games against Toronto because you got hit by Amazon and you know I said to him when the Kingdom Toronto. I got a chance to talk to him. After scrambling I said did you forget that Muslim was on the ice and he laughed and he said yes I did because he's the only Guy Tron a little hit you so there's definitely an edge there air and but like a mischievous edge and I think that comes across really well in the interview this was as we found out during the NHL media tour the summer of weddings his and the summer of kids as well and that's. We're going to kick off the interview. This is Torii Krueger the Boston bruins on the podcast brought to you by the next generation. GMC GMC Sierra trucks are John Takes. The bomb crazy swoops through the the high slot crew fires comes on the wrong side. Dan Elliott congratulations are in order for our next guest where he crew defenseman for the Boston bruins a a father for the first time and this may have had a game seven implication to it as well against Saint Louis first off Tory congratulations thank and tell us about almost missing game seven close my wife and I welcomed their first child a girl four days after game seven and it's great to get over the loss. I guess was scheduled birth or was no so so she goes into Labor game six game seven. What would you have done so we had discussed discussed the implications of that and being our first child labor typically as a little bit longer than the normal and she'd give me the green light to play in any game that ah immediately happened on the morning of a game or something go ahead and play and see what happens and just get your ass back there before the baby does. Ah Team Canada just played at the World Cup of basketball and there's a player for team. Canada's name is Melvin E. Jim and his wife gave birth while he was playing for Canada and he was there via facetime and I gotTa tell you like I always leave the choice up to people you make the choice it's good for you can imagine what that must have been like. He was in China. You must have been torn in totally different directions no I'm. I'm very thankful. I'm glad it worked out the way that it did. unbelievable experience and etes leaves you speechless to be honest. What is the way that parenthood fatherhood has changed. You already just even in three months. just you know you realize how selfish office yards a person before you become a parent and everything that you do even revolves around you especially being a pro athlete the meals what time you eat what time you gotta get up up and go to the rink and train and get your workouts and you realize how selfish she really are and and once you have someone to take care of you put their needs in front of yours and you go on your way before we get to some hardcore hockey questions here. Tori Elliott has a question of Boettcher cab Elliott so you are you the player rapper the alternate no player. Rep for Boston none. I'm Kinda just all just really intrigued and interested in really intriguing interested but you were at the player meeting on Wednesday night in Chicago. NOPE and you came out of the meeting and you're wearing shorts and chemo and people are auditory crew. The cavs are on full display. Now these art Martin Saint Louis Ask but the did get noted as being impressive Tori. I appreciate that I'm very flattered. Everyone's chasing Mardi so he's. He's the Guy our jammies pushing the pace for a long time so I'm very honored that my calves in the same sentence is there's still still using the same sentence though there was one player years ago from the Minnesota Wild who couldn't get cavs and ended up getting implants and guys roasted about so these are all the these aren't implants implants like these unnamed player with the Minnesota Wild. I don't have implants one of one of your teammates. All of a sudden walked in with calf implants. How would Torey Krug React Act. Oh we would be all over and if you think for a second that marshy without a guy walk into a room with Catherine plants here. You're doing it wrong.
