STANLEY CUP FINALS!!!! GAME 1!!!!!
"No. Now. Too Much I will quit. Air. Dog. Eat, dog, he. Yeah he doggy. Doggy. Ed. Welcome back to star cast marks the only ours. Finland August. This is Ryan and we have Chris again tonight say, Hey. And tonight we started. The finals. Done done robots. Amazing. That was sick. My intro or the fact that we're in the the fact that we're in the Stanley Cup finals interests sucked. Hey, come on. That much. How rude. We. All gathered here today continue. What are we talking about? We are gathered here today to speak of Gameboy wine. And Goodness? Gracious. I feel like we're talking about the same things every single podcast now it's almost like we're talking about the same team. I. Know, right. But at least with the Colorado series and with the Gold Knights series. The way we one was a little bit different. Right. Wasn't interesting enough for you stars dominating the game was shown in. At the end of the day, the stars dominated that game for the most part. I. I wish we had played a little bit stronger in the third period. You know. But I understand that's not how we play. We play are very defensive style and I think in the third period they out shot us like. Some insane number lake will they. To something like that they did what Vegas Colorado data whenever they got in trouble against us they just took every shot they got, and we're we're willing to give up those long range chances because we gotta get goaltender behind us. So there everything at the nets. So they got like two or three great scoring chances. I'd say the third period right where they had twenty two shots. So, not all twenty two of those shots were great shots. Right, but they were peppering and Mcginn Ainhoa. Any stood tall I know nets. The man that is Dobie but I mean. He he continues. This wouldn't you think he might falter a little bit. You know a couple of days off and he doesn't have all that momentum anymore any we get a little bit of a break. because. We are series early we didn't miss a step just made it better. What was your overall feeling? This whole game I feel. I love the stars dominated for whistle whistle honestly I know the third period was very lopsided but I actually enjoy watching a team locked down the third period. Now, that was a little more loosey Goosey than we've seen other stars, third period lockdowns but. Overall I. Still felt like the stars are in control of that game even while Tampa was pressing just because of how good our defenses and how Great Dhabi played so. I was a little worried in the second period. Remember I'd say. That I felt like we needed one more goal for the end of the second because we were playing so much better than them. In the second period the were outstanding in the second period and we needed to capitalize on it, which is what Colorado didn't do whenever they had their their good periods and we did we score two goals in the second period take a two-goal lead into the third period under the stars do that they don't lose the game and they didn't lose it again. So they played a great stars hockey game scored big goals big goals from young guys. This game especially to is the story. Well. Any know. You say young guys, but they're not really all that young, the other one that. Gave you on whatever rookies y'all know what I mean by young. Joe Hanley I actually had to look this up by a Siri. He's twenty nine and bonus referred to him as a kid. That kid has given us some great minutes I'm like. Young Guy. He's not young nucle-. I mean, I guess according to bonuses bonus has been around for forever but ordering Hawk Kills Young Yeah and then Alexia I didn't realize this but he's twenty-seven. I didn't really. I know. Not Old but. y'All it's not it's in the prime of your rookie. Right, right? Right. Right right. Well. So key Ronda does keep your onto things in every goal he has scored in this playoffs has been a huge goal just like you mentioned the three goals in game seven against Colorado the game tying goal. Against a the Golden Knights in game five, and then he does it here again at another clutch goal by Yoel Cave your. It is there something that he's doing that's causing him to be that clutch will he's winning a ton of puck battles and he's going to the right places in the offensive zone, and that's really what it comes down to you. That's what he was put on the power play right? He's finding open ice whatever he's in the high slot he's moving just slight adjustments to get away from the defense and get a chance to get his stick on the puck into put it on. So he he's been really great on the board, he's been really great without the puck finding ways to get open. And maybe he's that all around player that we've been looking for for so long. You know we have Jamie Ben, he's our big bruiser. We have tyler say again he's kind of our dangling playmaker who can still score goals and then we have are psychotic Russian elegant off and maybe keep your aunts as that two way forward and even he went undrafted. In thank you. For. Letting. Jim Noel. Know about him. Maybe he's GonNa turn into like a Mark Stone Kinda? Guy. He's looking like right now if you can keep going the way, he has been in these playoffs that he could be the guy with Jerry on often hints that becomes the core of this team for the first line. So he's looking great. So I'm hoping he continued that even after these series but for now I, hope you keep scoring goals for. In the in the current series. Yeah. In clutch goals on top of that does, but you know we mentioned the clutch goal in the second period, but he was also responsible for the hand legal. That was totally him. He pressured I think it I don't think it was headman I. Think it might have been circuit chef. Down in the far corner to the right of Celeski, and he was the reason why the goal was scored yeah. That's displaying both of the skills. I mentioned he. He's hard on the boards gets on the floor check. He finds open ice, which is what he did on his goal. So. Now I'm seeing a couple of people on twitter saying that hits Oh. No, it wasn't an I remember who it was. Now it was brayden point it wasn't a circuit Averni defenseman but the a lot of people were saying that hit looked kind of dirty. Give you onto on points and that's why big ocean went after him, and that's why that Hanley was wide open in the high slot. Was Key was because the golden went after. Give. Your onto after that hit. Do you think that hit was Kinda dirty at all? I don't think it was dirty at all I think the guy turn it into the last. I don't even think can be Raunchy didn't even really hit them that hard in my opinion he kinda tried to pin him to the boards to get the puck and the puck is Kinda came out but I think that leads to point throughout this whole game. The stars were way more physical than Tampa Bay like. By Times to like it felt like cannot match the physicality that was brought. I think I will agree with you in the first and second period they I mean it was no. No doubt I agree with you in the first and second period I think John Cooper made an adjustment in the second intermission. Instead guys were getting their butts creamed out there. We need to be a little bit more physical and they showed up in the third period I thought that is what happened to like in regular season games whenever you're down and you can't find a way to get the puck in the net you start hitting more. So that's it. Kind of felt like that's what happened during the second intermission they're like we gotta get something going. So let's start throwing the ball around and obviously didn't work out they didn't get a goal so. I think the stars are. Have the great advantage in physicality department in this series. We just talked about TV Orontes and how great he's been. Let's talk about Dobie for a second. We kinda hit him and then we kinda left him for a second but that gloves save. The Win Mail I was like. My hands over my face I'm like Oh. That's just now he's his teasing him. Yeah. You showed a little more leather there was actually necessary. I don't think that was his biggest safe I think his biggest save was. So say that toyopet that's a good. That's a good way to put it the toe pick safe and I mean that was literally on this gate blade if he had been just a tad bit smaller if he had been five ten into five eleven, I don't think he would have made that safe probably. But goodness man I mean and both of those were in the third period, right? I believe. So I believe so too. So that just goes back to what we've been saying about. Dobie is that he may not be super spectacular all the time. I mean unlike today he has huge savings the third period. Those two that we talked about the the windmill and then the the topic. But during the first two periods, he was pretty bored. That's great for the stars right. You don't want to rely in your goaltender until you need to in the third period he answered like he'd he did his job stars team in general did their job everyone the game handily so That's what we're looking for for at least three more wins. Or. We won the Game Hanley. Ha Dad Jokes. Okay. So anyways, he just got to. I mean you're you're right. We're three wins away from the Stanley Cup final and what I love what they did today is that they took advantage of the opportunity. Because of how the schedule has been because of COVID Cup in they're trying to get this done as quick possible and everything. I. Mean Tampa Bay played Thursday. They played Thursday and then came right back Saturday to play the Stanley Cup final and then we got Tuesday Wednesday Thursday Friday off. So we've got four days off. That's the longest we've had since the two days off when. The NATO shut down for the protests but. I was honestly really scared. Just, because I thought that we would get be too relaxed and then we would make that push in game one and I was thinking about the series that Tampa Bay had against the islanders and they did their game one was absolutely perfect. The islanders went to a game seven they had. The same thing like Tampa Bay in this round, they had to completely flip around and immediately go back and play hockey again two days later. And they took game one. And I was afraid. We weren't gonNA do that to Tampa Bay today. But thank goodness we actually did and we I mean we kept our. We pushing on him. Yeah. I was thinking the same thing as they get. The first period would be dominated by Tampa Bay in I. Wasn't really the stars were the better team in that period as well not by as much of a margin as they were in the second but there were definitely better and there was just luck that we didn't have the. The lead in that period in that period. So. But yeah. They're stars answer. Did they say no, we're not going to relax. We're GONNA go. Take. These games and the Cup as quickly as we can. So was good to see that awesome game from the stars. So after the hand legal. Yanni Gord had. He didn't even shoot the PUCK. If found stuff his skate ambassador opera behind. That mean that is the fluky EST goal. I mean we we keep talking about flu goals and everything, but that was a really fluky goal. And that's GonNa be the only. Way. That that's the only way they're gonNA Dhabi and this game is. By by a fluky goal like that, and nobody knew where win three feet wide it. Makes perfect kick. Save in. The corner. Completely. Unfortunate. It's like my goodness. That that I've seen that was blue kier that that was resells goal. The first time we played the blues and zero. Over the net hit the goalie in the back of the head and went in. But other than that. That goal was crazy fluky especially for such a great play by the goalie to like he does the exact right thing it gets off like what else are you GonNa do? Well, so we talked about your woke. Talked about Dobie. How about the continued. Emergence of Jamie Alexi AC. He. Did it again yeah. He's just been great throughout the playoffs. He's solidifying himself as number four, and that was kind of question if John Comes back does John's become number four number five while Alexi actors answered that questioning like No. Even if draws here, Alexia back is the number four guy he's the he's at least the third best defense have been on the team. And recently, he's been the second best with zero being first. So He's been outstanding throughout the playoffs. In the thing about our top four is the all do different things. So Miro is more of a speed. Sir He's more of the guy gets down into the zone John. Clean is the puck mover. He. I mean he's GonNa does a lot of that too. But he cleaned Berg has a special gift of getting the Puck from the point on net. He just really good at that and that's what you need especially on the power play. That's how goals go in seeing shots right exactly and then you've got Linda who's that stay at home defenceman who blocked shots, and he doesn't get any of the credit that he deserves and then you've got Jamie Alexi, who's kind of a mix of the three in. US More of a of the guy that you knocked the other big guy out of the same thing. So like. We're also talking about the battle of the big rig, the non story but I think it is like when we played Saint Louis, we couldn't. Last last season right or to the game seven. We were talking about we could. We couldn't match the intensity we couldn't match their size. In. Now we have Alexi. act. League he can. He's huge. He can do it every watts so It it's really just like showing kind of house. The stars evolved from that quick move the puck around score more goals than them style that. They got stopped by the Blues to this playoff team that is going to impose their will on the other. Right Then and again, Jim? No. Learned from that series in. Picked all of these guys up. Now. I I. Think a lot of it is also lucky in the fact that there's a lot of players that are playing extremely well I mean. Well. It's a new guy every night to right. That's what I'm talking about. That's talking about the last game Jamie was outstanding. This game he he's all right. He's making some decent plays a buck battles, but he wasn't great but this game. He was all over the is he had the puck like all the time which was crazy. hits played a great game. He had a lot of block shots. He had a great assist on the Hanley goal. So there's just new guys that are stepping up every game that are finding ways to contribute like who would have thought Joel Hanley would be the guy to scored the first goal in the Stanley. Cup finals like nobody who's Hanley not new guy is. And his that's his first goal. Ever it has first NHL goal is a game one game when. I mean. How cool is that going to be to be able to tell his grandchildren or even his children when when they get older? Hey. I scored my first NHL Goal and a playoff game there all the playoff games game one in the Stanley. Cup final during. During November it'll be way cooler if you can tell him, he won the series later to yes I agree. All right. Well, we also got A. Some of them wanted to talk about. Pat Maroon. I hate that jerk I'd use some other words for him but I can't. He's. That I mean first off. There's no point for him to do that at the end of the second period. What he did and then second, that's just flat out dangerous. Absolutely flat out dangerous and it was in the and honestly I really thought that that deserved more than just a ten minute misconduct. I mean on. I have to play like that, but it was it. Was Pretty. See, that's what I hate. About play like that. I I don't agree with you. I think was completely intentional and. Ashley might have been I'm just saying I'm not sure right now. I know I know for a hundred percent in fact that. I mean you if you watch the replay, if you watch the replay from the back corner from from Vassilev Skis, right. There's a camera over by the Zamboni doors and there's looking straight at him and he turns his head looks at the bench and shoots it straight up the bench. That is a bunch of bull crap and. The. The its completely intentional to get somebody get somebody hurt. I don't know if he intended to get somebody hurt but that's a situation where you can hurt somebody and no one's expecting something like that to happen at the end of the period that I mean the stars were already standing up starting to walk off. Yeah This is weird. I haven't seen that before it was super. Confusing I didn't know what really happened. will in and everybody missed it it seemed like the ten minute misconduct they thought that it was just said whatever. But honestly I kind wish that we had gotten a play at the beginning of the third period. I felt like deserved one after that frigging play. I mean even a two minute unsportsmanlike conduct. He was just ticked off because you'll okay of your onto did his thing and they were by two going into the third period. That's what it was. I mean, he was pulling frigging Novak Djokovic which. pissed me. Off. Okay So. One of the big things for tonight that I wanted to talk about was the continued penalty kill. So the stars are still continuing to have an outstanding penalty kill and when they do have their little, you know mess up or. A missing coverage or someone's not manning their point. Dhabi is just there just to mop up the mess. And everything I, do wish we had taken advantage of the power play in the first period more and I think that would put the game away a little bit quicker but I am happy with the penalty kill side of the game tonight. Agree one, hundred percent with the pill. The gillick great lighting really look like they had much of a chance on most of the power play maybe one time they set up for a decent amount of time. But I think the stars power play also looked it looked. It looked great. I think it definitely. It's worth the offense in the right direction to go and score the so while it wasn't. Officially productive for game flow standpoint, it definitely was productive. I will agree with you on that. Yeah. So I didn't mention that part. So they did get a lot of momentum offer those two power plants I just wish they had cashed in on those just to. and. Especially, after that fluke especially after that flute goal is the IANA. Gorge flu goal. I was like man we're playing so well in this first period and it looks like it's not even really. You know we're not really out playing them because the scores only one one and that's why it matters. Yeah. So. Yeah, the place definitely GONNA have to cash in eventually in this series, right? I. Mean we're not GonNa shut out the lightning on all of their penalties on all of their power plays and. They can't shut us out on our powerplays. We've got a score of goals there 'cause. We were the Dallas. Stars we're going to find some trouble eventually. Right. So just to throw a couple of stats, you tonight shots on goal stars barely. Twenty. MILLION IN In and I mean, it just goes to show you that you knows sometimes, shots doesn't always reflect the game flow or the momentum of the game because when you look at the first period, the shots on goal per period in the first period was five to four second was thirteen to ten, and then the third was twenty two. In favor of lightning in the third period in favor of the stars in the first in the second. I thought we dominated that first period and I thought for sure we had more more shots than that but apparently, we didn't. But Do you think shots on goal. Win You're looking at like like, say you dislike It's in the second period. The shots are thirty, five, twenty, two. Which team do you think in? It's tied one one which team do you think is? It has been the better team. It's a tie game. I definitely say the team with more shots but right give you typically but that. But see that wasn't that wasn't the case tonight. Yeah the. AMAS behind rights if you look gorgeous tap is behind and they have more shots. what I assume is that they're scrambling. Scoreline like that that's what I. That's what I saw. That's what I thought. When conducts always had all their shots and that's what I saw there vegas is just throwing everything at Pitt at dinner. So. That's what it felt like a period to write. It felt like lightning we've. Got Score got a score got score in there just throwing everything and not really getting great chances I. Mean Chances Weren't really on shots right? They were on scrambled around the front of the net. Other than the two giant safes. Well, those weren't shots. So the toe pick, it's just sliding on the ice guys blocked out. Oh Yeah that's not considered a shot. No it counts is a shot I'm saying it's not like a high skill shot. Out A high quality show. Yeah. Okay. I I. So. So it's a high quality chance, but it's not high quality shot. So it's not like someone snap it it from from the dots or slap at a hundred and ten mile an hour. One timer. So. So they're getting these shots but dowse wants to have the shots and they said that they've said, we're locking down games and especially when we're on the penalty kill, we're going to give them the shots outside of the dots. Dhabi. Is going to save all of any has so. I think the lightning should learn from the past series that the stars played in and that's that peppering the net is going to work. So if they want to win a game. From behind they're GONNA have to learn that. will end here. Here's the last question I wanted to ask his seems like a lot of people are upset that the stars are doing so well. Because of the brand of hockey that the stars play. So. They're all about the a lot of people are about the running gun offenses the the Nathan McKinnon's of the world in the stars don't really have somebody like that. I mean you see that on the Tampa Bay lightning you got buried in point you got Nikita Kucherov. You've got both of those victor. Hedman shoot the guy has nine goals this this postseason. While playing hurt. But. Everybody is afraid that. Even even if the stars don't win the Stanley, Cup? That because of how the stars played in how the islanders played that's going to affect what everybody else does in the NHL. In they look at us and they realize, Oh, were if if we go and get players hopeless play, this trap hockey is what I'm hearing a lot of trap hockey that we're GONNA get further in the playoffs. Do you think that the NHL was going to start heading that way in if they do start heading that way is that necessarily a bad thing? I think it's honestly ridiculous argument. You look at the past two franchises that have had the most success recently, the Blackhawks and the penguins. Were those trapped teams. They were great all around hockey teams, but especially, their offense was fantastic. So the idea that because two teams in a row are doing well in the playoffs that happened to be good defensive teams does not mean that the NHL is trending towards defense. It means that there's two viable game plans for how to play the game and I think fans should be excited about that like how stale would it be for? Just two offense of teams did not play defense and throw shots at each other. I'll tell you how steal it is. It's as stale as the NBA that's exactly what's happening scoring a hundred fifty points in basketball game. I can't watch that at all. It's honestly disgusting to watch to me but if you have to good styles of hockey that are fun to watch in their own right, it's obviously easier to watch an offensive team. But if you're watching a good defensive team and you know how hockey worked, it's really awesome to see people battle in the boards and fight for every puck. So I think vans should be excited about the fact that there's two extremely viable ways to play the game in two ways to build a team. So I think people are looking at that completely wrong and I think it's ridiculous how there's a lot of hockey personalities that are calling the stars not the better team like they haven't been the better team in the past three series including the including this one like just because we're playing a defensive style does not make us not a good team just because Kucherov can score budget points and put can store score a bunch of points and we don't have as many scores does not mean they're automatically. Right. So mainly from personalities I heard I saw Steve Dangles preview. So he actually took the stars to win right I know and six that's all star winning six. But like he said, the better team doesn't always win and he thought that that's what was hap-. That's what was going to happen here. But just because the team doesn't have a top guy, that's a great goalscorer doesn't mean that the they're not the better team. If you look at this game, the stars completely control the game. Throughout. Their they were outstanding there obviously better than the first two periods of the third period. If you've watched ours hockey, you know that that's what they're trying to do and they played the game that they wanted maybe a little bit too many shots did they didn't want to give up but many penalties yeah. But for the most part, the stars control the game. So I think to say that the stars are not the better team. Is Honestly ridiculous after watching this game and to complain about a defensive style when an offense style is obviously viable is is just silly. Get Commentary Chris. I'm not gonNA even add anything to that. Thought about it a lot man it's. Now, I know I know. That I wanted to end it so. I love watching the Patriots play in the Bruins especially this year it's exciting but watching the stars plays awesome to watch the grind like I don't understand why fans aren't aren't happy that both of these styles are working like it should be. It feels like we're in a great time in hockey that both styles are working. You can play however you WanNa play hockey and you could win if you're the better team. So. Yeah. That's thought on that. Either way you gotTa have good goaltending. True. Seen that throughout the playoffs no matter which team if they're defensive. Or offensive the. Better Goalie, normally wits. Right. All right well. Let's see two on on. Monday. This has been star cast marks I'm Ryan and along with Chris. We're the only Dallas Stars. Fan live broadcast.

So let's start with our agenda cause we do have a Pretty extensive list of topics to go over as the Boston bruins are currently in the second round of the National Hockey League twenty, twenty playoffs we'll have the one we get started with. With that agenda. Okay, well, we don't really WanNa talk a lot a lot about games, but we thought that maybe being in something to talk about because game was the only game of the four games this week that the bruins actually looked like the Bruins, right? So we won three to what to which I thought looked like he got effort you know you come out and swing in was like, Oh, you know Tampa Bay isn't Carolina and I think unless you're an idiot, you know Tampa Bay is Carolina so. I. Think we looked good coil I? Mean he's on thing we who else scored marshawn scored past scored. And hadn't is going to goals I think in the third to make Tampa all ideas that couple minutes at the end near the Bruins game where Bruins fan starts going. Aw. Still four and a half minutes after is this happening? You know kind of thing but we won overall good game where you feeling good on Sunday after we beat Tampa leave feeling good inside as a Bruins Fan. Yeah. Yeah I, was feeling pretty good I I mean I kind of knew that this was going to be one of those series that you the two best teams GonNa just battle it out as they did in the regular season in concerning the standing so. I mean I kind of knew this was going to happen I, didn't exactly know that they were gonNA truck over Carolina I I was totally wrong on that. I had the Bruins as a as a die hard fan win the series but I just thought that when you look over the other side, the offense and in the skill that that team had in the hurricanes. Put up a better effort, but regardless, bruins move on but it's been tough. It's been tough after this game because you know they go in in the just to need just didn't show the effort needed to get back in the series. But I'm sure we're GONNA talk about Allen Yeah we're GONNA get to that point but this game overall was pretty even right our power play was still. By our PK has been pretty awesome. Unfortunately, they've had to work a lot but game was pretty much what you would want to Boston Tampa series like yellow. Yeah. Yeah we can go. This is the series. I think as a hockey fan, you should be rooting for a seven game Tampa Boston series. I mean maybe not after watching our team play the last couple of games, but generally one would want to happen so. Yeah but not a lot of stupid penalties or anything like that. Of course, you know vision about officiating -ficiating whatever you can't went on a way either way. Then we went to game too. Yeah. We we lost in overtime for three. Not. Our best effort but still not a shit show right? Like you know we had our issues. I think that might have been the no was that the game. I don't know that might have been really hard game game three I. Don't know it's all blended together. But if you go back to game two on Nibiru Ritchie actually scored a goal which is funny when we get an extra later, it makes you wonder why Nick Ritchie one of the ones scoring and not some you know. People that you would expect more to be fall in the amphitheater he's being our snipers but I, guess that's probably the one good positive thing. We can say about Nick Ritchie this week. Yeah I. Did during the Tampa. Bay Front. Right. So Nick Ritchie has scored an that one coleman at even do not Brad Marchand came back. Kucherov ecorse them Blake Coleman marshawn. Again, marshawn is one of our only like top end players that is doing his job. To the fullest six. You know what I mean like he's had his moments. I'm sure we'll talk about it. How how many times can we should have very the night on this goaltender this kind of goaltender when you have to bury it and we haven't but that's all right and then Polat who when we discuss what's going wrong with this team. He's probably one of the biggest things going wrong with his team as a refusal to cover polat who can clearly beat. Andrew Defense and everyone else on his own team on this. So but anyway so we lost in overtime I wasn't feeling too like whatever three is gonNA, be awesome. Can You? He's GonNa be tough he he's going to be a apparently the worst game, the Boston Bruins GonNa play this season because everything everything about Wednesday's game three was wrong. Now we will specifically I know you WanNa talk about goaltending thing anyway. But just in a general sense, we won't talk about it now but I am an estate. If you're, GonNa put Dan Dr in this game. Having him have to come in for his first NHL game after team is shelling of. goaltender WHO's defensives and protecting him maybe not the best idea like I understand you had to pull on but this idea that they were suddenly going to be playing better defense just because lock wasn't and. That was if you're going to put them in for the back to back or whatever. You should've just been putting him in for the back to back that was that's just my thought on that whole process but everything was everything was Tampa now gives out wise the game before they did out, shoot us and they generally outplayed us. But there were moments we looked like us, right well, let's go really bad seven to one. Let's just look at these numbers for a second now it's not. We weren't shooting 'cause we were. We just couldn't put the puck in the NAP right? Stupid stupid penalties. Around penalties that may or may not been penalties whatever it was crappy all around. Tampa owned the bruins ass. On game three. Owned them from about minutes into that. Well, the first period wasn't so bad. It was like I don't really like this Danny guardrail bad real quick and never came back and sometimes even best teams can't come back. But you know what? They didn't do yesterday that they were supposed to do. They didn't come back swinging they should have gained four the most pivotal game especially when you play in a power house, like this is a you should expect seven games if you want to win the series kind series and I don't know about you. Even though we only lost by two goals, Tampa has literally scored. The goals that have been scored this week that concerns me. Anish. Yeah. No, you've mentioned the shots, the shots there, but then not. In my opinion quality shots against a vessel St type A goal time to that guy. I love that behind the the the net cam. Goal move in is it? He's quick in these big is. He's awesome and he's probably GonNa win the Zina Vezina. However, you spell it. I got roasted for that ink listen I say both ways as it cracks me up. As far as I know. It's the Venza trophy are as. Rosen says in anything I know about how you may pronounce that I think it's not and that's how I hear most people who are in hockey say. I do both because who knows I told them I I told the person that called me out on it. It's like I talk shit anyway. So don't worry about it. Yeah that's a nice how it's at least in my mind. So Yesterday. This is the thing that this is why Tampa's listen because again, yesterday wasn't the most horrible effort better than game. But as good as game for should have been no. Okay. But We had thirty shots. They had twenty six, but it doesn't matter if you can't put it in the net guy everyone's tinling shooting. Or as we'll get to on shore, this has been annoying you because it seems to be annoying anyone. I know who likes hockey? Can you just shoot the puck? You don't need the perfect pass. You don't need to hold the next three seconds Oh Vassal Alaska can square up and block the shot like just shoot sorry We had sixty five percent of the face off wins, which is great if you win the game. Giveaways we were even with them. They took away twelve and we only took away for. So that was indicative of some of the problems yesterday. But? Yeah. So we lost. So now we're looking at, we're going to go into the restless schedule. Win being down three, two, one and. Someone said have a on twitter. This morning said have we have come back from three to line and Maria from watertown said no but tomorrow's a good day to start and I said thank you Maria positively because I'm a very negative person not like in general but just you know me, I'm a pessimist on. Yeah, whatever. Okay but the thing because it's the great equalizer that you can have hope your team who should not be last year Tampa team this year and I would like to point out if we lose, we will still have gone out in the second round and not the earth in sweep. We did win a game. Thank you. Dr. Though we get to talk into the nitty gritty, just the general, what the Hell's going on with his team kind of talk did you do the I? Did I did what I also mentioned that we have a new sponsor and this is going to be a segment that we're going to work on for the next couple of weeks. Hopefully, the bruins stay in because this is very relevant to. The be sticking around in these playoffs.

Back AC like you said, we're GONNA work more on how to incorporate them into. This. Show as we go forward but just wanted to get the partnership started. Seeing that before we get to like. Before we go into the really dark place of. You know the team. Let's talk about I. Before we get into, this is a way to be political or anything else. But we gotta talk about how you know this week sports and pausing all that. By I know mark like it's very important like we are not political and we don't believe human rights issues and things like that are political and this is just obviously important because there's movement going in our country and moments happening in the sport. So before game three. Or the day game three. On Wednesday. Wasn't Wednesday of Tuesday. anyways I'm sure by now everyone Jacob Blake and was shot seven times by the cops. Last week Kenosha Wisconsin has been a lot of stuff going on all over the country about this but the NBA chose to not play their games a few baseball teams and a few Amal. MLS teams chose not to play on Wednesday and. Hockey was. So this kind of before we get to what actually happened and what the HDA had you know came out with was finally their pledge was released to the public to look You know whatever the hockey diversity alliance if for those who don't know and talk about how sports just a little bit about sports in was the right call, not the ranked call and how. This really I wanted to talk about it because I had. All over twitter was everyone doing the I'm so disappointed because the NHL, the only league playing or whatever. Then there was this lady girl. I. Dunno, whatever she's probably she looks like maybe she's in our twenty. I don't know about social media advocate and I don't really care. Doesn't tell six weeks ago I didn't even have social media and don't care because they don't use it to necessarily whatever. So she tizzy in. It's fine. I'm not I'm not trashing this Donald saying what led to me think about a lot of things about how we as humans getting help like athletes do their part, but we citizens can do our heart. So you got pissed because I called her on basically blamed me like it was bad hockey I I'm not mad at her I. Also I wasn't going maybe say her name, but I will say only because she's hockey with Hannah, she's very popular. What does that she's a young writer and I'm all for supporting women. So I'm not I'm not trashing that. What I'm saying is if got me thinking that we as citizens are starting I think to even people we do agree with people on our side are turning and let's not do that. Let's. Think about. So the sports it was big outright and so my boy was Like if we're going to be mad, that's fine. But like for me personally sports being canceled or not it's not about, yes, you get the attention for that minute like what are we going to do in this moment and i? The NHL did not cancel their games that night but they did talk after the player initiated a pause for two days which I think. Things coming from the players and then using that position with thoughtful kind of whatever is going to be more effective in the long run to help. You know whatever just Going on so I just wanted to mention the HDA. Like an eight statement kind of pledge I'm not GonNa read the whole thing. You can see it. You've probably seen on there but. I just wanted to mention on some of the things that they're asking because I feel like it's a good way to start I think that we're in a place where everyone wants positive change no matter whatever your feelings are on things but we don't really have a plan to action. So like for me I think like I said what are the things we can do we can vote weekend nature polling places are available. We can start community groups to have community discussions to make change in our own communities and these athletes can do some things that. are a little bigger, but I do have to say that the NHL, of course, all players and teams put their statements of you know where supporting this and as much as the NHL `Bout Bass knock canceling games and also like to point out and I think Ryan, Reeves did a great job when they walked in that conference room a couple days ago to articulate at least for the NHL players that no one's asking anybody to be an advocate for everything all the time. But some of these things are asking in this pledge I think are very. Tina. Do you know what I mean simply expanding your. Executives from two three point five percent being a minority or wherever you know what I mean things like that is something that the League can make meaningful steps to back up their words not just empty. You know I'm not saying they want it to be empty but I also think it's dangerous when people just come off a cop you know expanding like evil in the you know from coaches, players or whatever accessibility. These are all things I think that you know. I know everyone wants action but I liked to see places making real meaningful. I guess plans Jeremy like how to attain your progress. So under saying as much as we love sports were obsessed with sports, right? It is not sports job to be social commentators but as good citizens if they want, they should use their platform to stimulate real attainable change. You know what I mean 'cause everything can't happen all at once but my boy noses. With all the Real World Shit Cove, whatever everything going on in this thing, let's not lose sight of what we're actually trying to do right by attacking each other. Let's listen. Let's say, Hey, like all right I work in a youth Schwartz Organization, how can I help translate some of these goals say from the other organisms community organizations to stimulate change. Because in the real world, twitter is not the real world. These is not the real world. It's not enough to just be mad about something on the air. It's also important that those that have power like athletes or celebrities are somebody used their platform to actually make real change not just be outraged for the minute like everyone keeps saying not a moment. It's a movement and in order to do that I think we should all kinda rough like to a week into you know if you have. Whatever is going on in your own community because you know run via local boards, whatever you need to do but I think I just I'm not gonna read the whole thing. That's awesome. But there's eight points basically hockey pledge everybody should go and look at it and really examine NC, and also as fans of the sport I would like us to if the players are on board and they've talked in. I mean and they're they're willing to help initiate these really in their communities when which they represent as players go out, make me achieved I know there's a lot of leagues and being and they're trying to maybe make their sportscenter is polling places. So there is a larger access things like that. We as fans need to hold the NHL or the NBA or the MLB are whatever if we truly want art sports? Platform to mean something in the big world. We. Need to hold our leagues accountable to follow through not just empty promises to help these athletes create these environments. That's all I wanted to say about that I personally more probably the NFL's players came together and made a statement from them. I think stew I think it would have been more powerful if on Wednesday the NBA players did play took over that Mike for the first hour and let them. You don't say what they need to decide what Ben More Paul of everyone in hockey took a knee or whatever out anybody expects them to do stop telling each other how to be allies yes. But they didn't. But I thought listening to Ryan Reeves speak was way more impactful than not playing the game and not just for me. So that's all I wanted to say about that and now it's weird to transition. We did have a two day pause it was a big deal thing that went on sports this weekend it would just be remiss to not mention it. So do what you need to do just be good citizens and good humans to each other and let's work it out together and not in our I mean. It's it's tough and. and. Just, it's. It's it's just disgusting. All everything. As a citizen of the United States and what we're going through the diversity and so on. It's just it's just seems to be getting worse and. I'm not happy about what I'm seeing. You know it's it's a scary situation and but I also don't want to comment much further on it because the fact is that. Social media is a dumpster fire, and if you don't agree or if you disagree you're going to get taken out of context anyway. So why bother you know but I do understand that the the message does have to get out there and and I'm not very good at speaking about this stuff because. I know my anxiety goes through the frigging of roof when I see stuff like this, and it's actually happening where I live. In it's troubling and I'm not a very good like I said, I'm not a good speaker about all of this stuff but. It just got to stop and I just I don't know what to say I. Honestly just get to a point where I don't have words enough to like comprehend what's going on I'm in awe it's like stop you know but. That's just not enough but I just want to move on. I'm sorry for everybody that's gone through this and and if family members and friends. And it's just disgusting and I just can't. I can't handle it. So someone asked me about the other day I said see this is why I don't understand like I understand why what's going on going on meaning like people being pet improved and all that I get that because. In order to have the society we want. We have to demand that. That's how a democratic republic if like you know it's not going away we want. But not just our voices like I said we have to also start a community. Whatever you have gains in your community or whatever you even we live in Suburbia, right? So, what some towns or more diverse than others, wikileaks start diversity call, and that's why I'd like again I will never like I wasn't upset about because I know my juice because I've started diversity like years ago not when it was easy not saying it's easy now but what I'm saying it's a lot more acceptable to be accepting people of different races religions whatever now even which is what makes me to is to see this because I have one tribe that's the American in my citizens and my fellow citizens of my fellow citizens and. That's it, and like you said, we just want everybody to take a breath not just use words but US action and we want everyone to be healthy NC and move on and that's not. Just, an get on, but it was a big deal in sports generally like I said and we are you know you don't want to get into it, but you don't want to avoid it either. So that's all we are saying about that. Now it seems where we're going to swing back to hockey but my big thing is everyone going read the each as what they're asking of the League. So we as fans can hold them accountable to help players of that coalition current and former and go out and help them expand their coalitions so that We got the society we want. Right. You Go. All right. So i. think that's positive but I understand that it can go either way. But now we to circle back to the Bruins after all this is the black and gold hockey podcasts. So mark were I'm GonNa. Let you let out the goal Teddy. You had it on two different things that I just summarize here. So your first point was what is happening? With did you want for the goaltending talk about. I'm GonNa let you lead that I absolutely don't understand what the hell is going on with this guy. You know. I will definitely talk about. Emotions in the bubble later on I. Just I just don't get it i. mean this is the the next guy up when when. You're starter. You know is not around so His glove hand is absolutely terrible. He's way out of position. I don't know what happened I mean we saw some glimpses of I mean he hasn't been great throughout any of these playoffs. I mean even even when he got the win, it was it was ugly so. I don't know what's going on and I'm not. I'm not proud of what I'm seeing is just. that one a one B mentality is not right now this is a one A and one C It's it's it's disturbing, but I gotTa tell you. We're GONNA. Talk about the rest of the team later on, they'll stop right now. Yeah. That's what I thought. We would start goaltending had had obviously you WANNA talk about battle obviously or Dan. Blood Dash Dr and has debut. But just we'll talk about the rest of the team because I although your ro has his fair share of how he's been playing A. It is when they say the goal is on the island by himself, this goalie is been on the island. I if you want, we can talk about defense and with. Yaro or I didn't know if you want to comment about. Can everyone just stop with the Damn Vlad our hate the dash eight over a period and half of that he inherited we'll go the team breaking down into into defense and full woods. It's been crap in front. It's been absolutely crap. There's no support. And it's not saying that the goal tending isn't the blame either. But the team in front of is has been very disappointing in my opinion. And it's just it's it's frustrating because they just don't look like they're into it. They look like they've checked out physically mentally and it's I'm not mad at that. I'm not mad at that because it's twenty twenty and this has been a shit show of year. This these people they're not near their families and I don't give a shit what people say about that. You know they've only had five months to be with their families. They can all spend a couple of months. You know the not and this is. This is a grind. This is an absolute grind when you guys get when people get to this level of hockey, it's a huge grind and it's important to have family members close by I know this stretches of road games and so on. But it's nothing like this. The separation is totally different. You. Need family members too like mentally recover sometimes from the stress levels at these guys go through playing in the NHL. It's fun. It's exciting to get to that point, but is stressful on your body and your mind so. It I, just don't understand the the the fact that just because the narrative is just so frustrating when you when you hear that they've had all this time often they're bunch babies I almost said something I shouldn't have said but. It's not even so much. The I I know a lot of it is the family but I think you hit the nail on the head when you're like this is how they distress is doing these other things and I don't know if they underestimated needing to have more with. You have them all stuck in the bubble. Makes Sense everyone signed on a great but a few of the players have commented on how you normally go get away from hockey. I know the teams of doing their bass in the NHL doing their best to try and do like movies and try to get them out golfing if they can things like that. But. There's not enough. Right and I think especially because they didn't were at home in there was a lot of. The video whatever. So the thing that would normally use on the road or whatever to help distract a not being with family to press is not decompress after a big game. So like this week, right so game three, right because Yaro driving me not in this way he is saving all can shots needs to mostly right? But the goals giving up better solely on him are the stupid ones that he's been stopping since score level hockey kind of thing, right? But. The defense has done a big thing and I'll say, right so like everyone hates Tori crew now everyone go don't resign now I'm not saying he's not playing let crap but you know what? At least where he's not doing who also was away from his wife and his young daughter and everything else at least he has a fucking else and even to be getting a game has conduct when he shouldn't be this and that at least he's trying defensively his socks but he has been trying still to pull everyone together on that front and when he's on the ice, he is not perfect and Brandon Carlo I do not know what is going Olive Brandon Carlo. He has been our most consistent defensive player all year just even Keel Yanni. and He's struggling struggling hard and when you have kroger together and say, they're ball struggling obviously that pairing is going to look like crap but the lat yesterday or tour A. One of those goals, he's like and he's on the boards trying to goes out we have four people standing in front of Yaroslava Lock in a box, not doing coverage not one on one coverage on any of the lightning half of them not even facing the Tampa Bay lightning and then you wanNA wonder why A Couple of them close enough. They could've at least moved to act like they were going to help their goaltender, but they did it right. Then there's some you can't put on your like it was weird bounce on yesterday that that just one of those freakish lake heads the slush and whatever. But. It's not just cruising harlow people. You can hey and be way and whatever you WANNA do. But all I ask is that if Tamar was going to be the last day that these boys are all going to be together obviously to not be you know what I mean. At least fucking. Go down swinging. Don't go down like this. I. Mean Lease Force again sex. Totally. Totally agree you are a better in the you've been playing and Tampa nausea about a team and that's why they're capitalizing on you looking you're not. You're not I mean so like Pasta, I don't know he must be injured. I don't know what's going on with him but. So. Maybe he shouldn't be on the blue if he can't keep the puck in on the power play right and can't get a good shot off going to go net maybe we take pasta off the first unit power under saying let it maybe that helps heal whatever. But I, do think we can win the series even if other people don't and that's gonNA solely decide on. How they play what Bruce Cassidy does with the lineup can do you before we move onto other aspects of what the Hell is going on this week mentioned about the the Dan Mixes Nhl debut? I'm not overly happy about the decision to put him in like that. You know you you obviously not going to get a spark onto making that change. So I don't get that that was more or less embarrassing to him. Because of the way, the barrister play in front of the goaltending in you know and. Yaro is just it. It's so frustrating. Throw them in to start give them the confidence. Give him the confidence to like. Hey Dan I just want to let you know we're going to start you and say that on. Sunday. So they can get mentally prepared and ready for that like Yaro talk to him yards in the hallway trying to talk to this kid it's all right. But like yeah, probably say Jim. This is not your fault and whatever happened like literally everyone else might have been bashing him on this than that which I think is insane to Baxter kid who literally has not played one minute of. Thought about it that was the bashing. You re versus Tampa Bay in the second round Oh. Yeah. This is his faulty inherited shit. I know twitter could be a dumpster fire sometimes. But when you look on there and you see the comments from passionate Bruins, fans that I do enjoy you know talking to. When you see that I, do I do scroll I I see. And it's already set in this one for failure much like they would yoga. It's so frigging sad that this guy comes into the game to recover from one of happened with Yaro trying to create a spark fo- cassidy and then did not do very well because he had no support in front of them it was an embarrassing thing to do in my opinion. And I like Dan a lot I've interviewed him several times and he's he's very passionate goaltender and he wants to do the best he can, and that frustrated him because it was just unexpected. I can get the emotions from a young kid like that twenty three years old assigned a three year deal. He is our future in my opinion and we should just. act like he's going to be a part of this organization said of already forcing them out of the frigging bubble. It's like come on give Kenneth Chance I the way they treat goal turning around here just. Just, mind boggling you know. Yeah I Know that obviously before the game, the debate was who to start. Yaro lock I think can win for us. You know what I mean but I do think again like Dan da probably should lead dash sorry I don't offend him if he ever he experience. Overall. All right. So I agree with you that. Yaro, can win for us because we're good solid team. We're playing like a team and not like whatever has been happening especially the last two games, right? I gained three I feel would have gone that way whether. Dr Started or whatever, but they probably should have if you I personally think maybe they should have started. Ludar. Game before 'cause gain threes more pivotal and let Yaro be arrested for that game but either way. One it is a lot to ask Yaroslava lock to be in peak form as he did not play any of the Round Robin Games. In he did not so. He's tired. He's not conditioned probably the way you know like the game action I'm not saying on him. He didn't really play him the round robin to complete most of the Games until to go was gone. Yaro did not get a lot of warm up as what I'm saying he didn't get a lot of real meaningful lake gapes. Here, Star wasn't being what I'm saying is what's on him is on him, but there's a lot of other things that are making his job a lot fucking harder to be the goaltender of this team because he is the one be knocked the and he's trying to use the best that he can. He hasn't left the best. Neither has the defense. But it would have been much better all around probably from both goaltenders psyche. To have started the kit on game three gave barrel a day or two to kind of talk them into like no matter. What happens you know what I mean just like you know and give them a little bit. Let our arrest and he had to get pole put jahrling instead of vice versa because you created a situation where this twenty three who's never played a game a hockey is already five bowls down again. The goaltenders partly, what's in front of the goaltenders? Alz. But again, like you said, what sparked did you think that was gonNA create no-one leaks if they're not? If the urgency of what's happening in this game three and protecting their starting goaltender isn't happening. Why do you think suddenly this team's GonNa be like oh? Jeez. Now you know Dan and that we better get together, they could've actually before Yaro ever got pulled they could have shortened that leading that's the problem they're not stunting the bleeding when it stops in. Yesterday was slow and boring to watch hockey game. It was very methodical, which is funny because that's the hockey we grew up with more thoughtful hockey but it's like we're bleeding to death and Tampa's just circling in the water. Smell in the blood just waiting like cover victor. Hedman. Okay. So all right headlines, GONNA do it every once you don't waste your energy, but you could cover someone else. Why is there no man on man coverage you know and you look at this team defensively one minute they look awesome. They killed four and a half minutes of that Richie penalty yesterday before they let up a goal, right? Then they can't stop a weak ass like all you had to do with stop an inch to the left and you could at least afflicted it and gave you goalie. Maybe a little better chance on that I. Don't know. Can we talk about the Ritchie hit bell. We're going to talk, GRA Yeah. Let's talk about it so. I don't know How Joey preference this first of all are you mad about a five minutes in the box? I am. Very distraught about the hidden general. Guided wanted either wanted to say I. Totally blindsided I. Don't Care How many times you look at the video and say it was shoulder to shoulder. Yes it was shoulder to shoulder, but it was totally blindsided and so many people that old school hockey and I get it. This is the game back. Then this is the game that they grew up with and I I did too. But this is a this is the evolution of the game in trying to be Safe Abou- playing this game. He wasn't meiring his pass is outlet pass was totally admired. That's not on him. The safety issue here is how Richie came in on the side that he was not even seen, and then threw him in the boards. Now listen he we go. Was I'm sorry who's the player again because I'm so aggravated about this? Yanni Gord. Yanni Gord. Okay. This I don't know. I think when I say this. So he takes the hit thrashes into the boards. It's kind of you know shaking moment. He goes down. Day. So. Yanni does look up and he looks at the rough. And stay down until he saw his hand up and then skated off the ice we all thought the worst. He, he did get up. And then came back into the game. So. Was it I mean listen the hit was bad very, very questionable and I'm actually surprised. I'm actually surprised nothing was said from play safety yet. But? I think I might have got the player gives us let me just double check of yesterday. Let me finish. So You keep going so. The hit was bad but. Him Getting the extra penalty and possibly faking it. Is also a very valid question. So this might not been so bad that it hurt him but still it could have been avoided because it was still blindsided i. don't care how many people come up to me and say that it's I'm gonNA come. It's blindsided. He was admiring is passed and you didn't see Richie coming that still illegal in my opinion and. Was it five? That's questionable. I agree with you because I. Even. If it is shoulder to shoulder. I absolutely. Believe that was the blindside head and I know. We weren't the only bruins fans that also were on Tampa's like that's fucked up side because. Yes. You may be too long look at your past. That's fine. But that's the whole point. The pass was long gone out of his hands up those jobs and you hit him and had he been side to side with him? I would be onboard for totally clean hat, right? He was behind him when he went shoulder to shoulder, he was absolutely Ignani gourds blindspot and even ricky probably still would across him. That was a bad hockey decision. And We'll and Tampa's in our ask the way they in the last few days I don't need dad hockey decisions that may lead to thirty. Go into the box for long spans. Timely said four and a half minutes about five minute penalty they killed off and just what can you do? That's a long for on five. The Tampa Bay lightning. So this was a response of Ritchie for the idea, the air quotes there for the people that aren't watching on Youtube. This. Response for the Coleman hit who Komen Gut thrash into the boards very similar. So I can get is trying to stick up for your teammate. But if you're going to do that, make sure you're looking at the player that you trying to get off his game or rub a little bit for what he did to your teammate seat. Let him be a man go straight at him not from the side I thought that that was very cowardice in my opinion. Side Back I. Don't like that and. I. Just. And then what happened is selfish. It's a selfish blade because he got a five minute penalty and the and the Tampa Bay lightning a power play goal. You know it's it's just unbelievable how this whole thing went through when it could have been totally avoided. Let's not just that but there's been a few times with 'em. This know like everyone slashes into. And I'm all I get your job is just stand up and like, yeah, like early in the game people took like you're gonNa Crash Coleman like I get that. But that particular hit I, have an issue with I. Don't have an issue with people stand up. On I don't have an issue atop guy plays I haven't actually west. You weren't even with him. You're coming behind him and there is no way that he would have seen you and the elder it's not like. It's a little different to me than I know people say Oh, well, the Charlie mcelroy hit on all the difference is, is that join Staal is playing heads down hockey which he knows he's not supposed to play and his body was turned towards mcevoy even if mcelroy turned his body backwards into him at the last minute. Enjoyed install had looked up he would at least been maybe racer or something. Richie did not give Yanni Gordon situation. That he could have recovered speaking of on defending the head and again like you said, and they'll be the bait whatever we may be wrong. That's will like we don't need hate mail about it. If you bring, it was a perfectly good head. That's fine. You can think that and there's a lot of people who think that. I'm not shitting on buddy, don't work for safety or review, and by the way gives me. Just, checked on twitter just a couple of seconds ago NHL Player safety has not updated anything. The last time they updated was on eight twenty and that was ten days ago so. Bring up there could be no time when they come out and say something to. They may or may not because they probably expect the Bruins. To Go home I know most people do even bruins. He's. That's the other thing. Don't want. I'm in a bad mood because my teams getting their astle up seven to one, my football team lost four straight. Super Bowl's almost thirty years ago and I have to hear that every single year. So I'm a little tougher than a Wednesday going wrong rub any so sorry. Cassidy defends the head, right? Yeah Yeah, which that which I'm surprised about like even if he was neutral about it, that cassidy was vehemently be eminently defending this play which shocks me from what I know about Bruce Casting how he expects the place Lee expects them to be tough. Not Dirty. You know what I mean. To me, this is a sign of how frustrated this team is just generally but maybe some of that comes from the director of the general so I would like to ask you. How much of these losses is on coach Cassidy lineup changes defending that you know what I mean like. Can you speak on it because I got you know we all get into it but. You like. I would like to I say the line talk about the lineup changes The that whole thing when that happened. You know game one, the bruins winning over time, which is awesome. Game Two comes around and you go to overtime and you lose. Okay. and. So it's like this. Exactly what we thought the series was gonna be like is going to be back and forth possibly need more than sixty minutes you know throughout? So I'm feeling good. As a bruins fan feeling good about getting into overtime twice. But Bruce Cassie seems to think that this is not good and I need to shake things up and he and I just think that the response of going to overtime twice. And Making these lineup changes I'm not crapping on Lynn home and I'm you know this nat- but what he did I don't think was. Positive enough and I don't think he's sent a good message to the the players that were actually in those games. In those two overtime Games corrales injured. I know why he's out. In you need replacement, I'd get that but then the other moves wanted just in quite understand so. I I'm I'm like use alike. After we lost into I wasn't mean again they mostly look think. They still look like themselves there were time, but again Tampa Bay's Tampa Bay. I'm not trying you know like we are going to have times where you know. But gains three started just a what on the living. Are you doing because like you said you don't. I think. And this is just a general comment. You underestimate chemistry when you get to this kind of point especially like a quick flash Japan let's get together kind of thing right and you've been putting the young kids in. But then now you're not even the young kids who have of created some chemistry. And I agree with you, you're making unnecessary changes to the lineup. Now is out. So pollen home you're in again I always forget your team, but when you are on the ice. You are solid. You don't really make things worse than you know you at least try to help get played like a fourth liner should be you know what I mean But then some of these other like. Like Colon. is in and I like Coleman but like yesterday should coleman be are deriving force on the offense I don't think he should, and that kid twice walked right in on Bass. Alaska trying to set something up or couldn't just get a shot off. So I don't fault him out of him I like Carson Coleman. Let you know. As the coach. Why if you one game one? And Game Two you went to overtime for three. It was still again numbers evenly matched things. Why would you? And then game three do nothing to fix the problem for game for you put pretty much. So this to me is the psychological aspect of it. Right these players can't get away from the game like assassin kinda ducked like so. Dory grew gets are probably helping him DISEA- on social in I'm not saying he doesn't. Get you blame but like He's Arden fucking probably jacked up enough of this is probably the last round with my guys, right? He's a waiver of his wife and his daughter whatever you know they're all stuck together all the time and it mean even with your best friends, right like by the end of summer yelling shit in full start I. GotTa Get away from these people a little bit and talk to other people, right it's a crap show and then they don't home and all that go back to the hotel and all they have is cush ball in. Ferguson looking on social media. See what's going on in the bruins players they know on on everybody's getting thrown under the bus you know for. Obviously, this is all Dan. Dashes. Look. You know what? I mean the guy showed up twenty minutes of his life, but does as well. I'll let in this kid's GonNa have he saw ochs doesn't act really the same goes it April like on. Sweetie sign for whatever there's that like shot up dude like we fans good better. Ugly. It is what it is. Yes. We all want them to improve but what I want to improve is cassidy's need and he does it all the time to for no reason at all. Make too big of a shakeup when all you needed was a little hit bump. You know like I want he does that stop doing that also gonNA play Golden Young goaltender in, do it before your batteries then. So shout, he needs a little bit of A. Quiet music like. I. Don't I academy. In my opinion cassidy matches up the physicality totally wrong and would. It I'm not saying he does it wrong and he's way better than this than I would ever be. But when he does it like when he needs to, okay, we are planning lightning I need to do something to get more physical and he brings in Nick? Ritchie. When he does stuff like that even in the past, I'm not talking about these play offs the results a normally agonizing and hard to watch. But I'm not saying that if he brought in a young kid likes Nica that things would be any better. What I it's just. When he wants to match up physically physically against another opponent it's just something that is just. Are Terrible Sarah and we saw it in. A hit like that, and we see Ritchie's play and he does have a has been contributing. In the factor and so on. But I just don't think that he's that much of a you know a guy that you're going to go to to to actually win a game. That's not it's a team I think he's not fun fact. Yeah. It's not enough of a factor at all I mean it's been. It's a team effort and what we're seeing right now is is is something that I don't think that everybody's all on board with to be honest with you. It just seems very. Interesting and. It's tough. Yeah will you can see it right. So in the Carolina series, you can see like after the wreck rallied around Yaro get Carolina's no joke. So you I mean we don a quicker than I you know probably would have thought we would but we did by the team seemed comfortable with with a late just as a team. Right they were beyond like themselves a little bit. They had that bruins happy and they looked like the bruins game one burst Tampa Bay. Seemed comfortable like themselves not the you know game to the overtime nothing I think they should be beating themselves up about maybe regroup. Let's recess like, Hey, how about we? I don't know like I said put someone Andre a lot because he seems to be able to put the allotted RS team. So just one person cover him right recovery has been terrible owing on what is up with. You can't like so when we look like the Bruins Not, doing man on man necessarily where playing are solid walk and move. Don't ever open up place and with Tampa Bay the team again, our tk has been awesome right. But like defensively as a team we suck, why can we played better defense for five than we can five on five doesn't make sense to me whatsoever game three years shake things up a little. I mean, even on game three everyone's like, Oh, where lineup. What's going on this? And like you said, the players don't seem to like our respond to this, and now I get your the coach and you're the guy who makes the decision like Marxists. Are Way more brilliant at us. We're just to fans gathered and no, we know you know what I mean, but it would seem to me. If my team took a seven to one shelling. Before game or I would probably talk to. I don't feel like the leaders are leading the way they should or they maybe they're not being able to lead the way they should. I just. I. I feel this team is the best when Chara is run and the show and whoever. So maybe he's not the mess defensively but like. These all inclusive beziers also giant man and if he just goes on their big Slovakian voice and says the fuck out like you you have to. Use Your. Exactly because they do right. Don't let this team don't let this team own that neutral zone I don't get help plays like polite can go right through them like Swiss cheese and create opportunities for them and we're just like, oh, it happened you know Ole, it's. It's it's so frustrating to see when. You know this is tough. I just got to remember they're a better team than they've been playing with their a better team in in Tampa knows you think Tampa has not shown up because they know if the Bruins win game five, they're back in the series and Tampa because of bear history and the history between the two clubs. Right? We would one they went. We went one you know to like on the march to the Stanley Cup. They're probably but like I said, they're like shocks in the water but you know what we could shall them a few rounds the way we did to Carolina in that third period that game. And if we do that like. Like, I just don't understand you cannot give vassal se times square up every time he's going to and it's weird to me because that's not our game where the best one were cast past past move past you re bound past. were. Not An all Tampa Bay has to do just like Saint Louis after they scored that goal in game seven is sit back. and. The bruins be their own worst enemy and we can change that they can change that we can't do anything but sit back. To, Holland dire game. Pigs that we gotta do. This. Team can still win. So can all the Bruins fans regardless of the fact that tomorrow probably may be the last game of the season? Possibly, right. That's what an elimination game as could possibly be the last time that Tori group ever has number forty seven on in this organization Jay debris, any of them for that matter, Macara's link whatever I say Grizz trying to get something done to. Be Bs and it's just like it's funny because as always we fall back on I third and fourth lines. And our second and third pairing defense and yet will not even the second year on the Crowd you know whatever but I also don't think it's productive like the cashier plays eighteen minutes, one game, and then he's on the ice. Bonine minutes the next game that kind of thing I'm just picking a name because I can't think of someone specifically time that doesn't help either I think that doesn't help the confidence level either. So you know what? If the game's going south, just let the game go south just let Wagner still have wagner's minutes instill earning because. Sometimes, shortening the bench thou a yeah. Maybe schefter too. But like a whole period if you're struggling that doesn't help either just wears everybody else. Then you get the power play. Patrice Bergeron has a little less energy and whatever also please take pasta off the power play. He can't get the puck the net right now. I'm not mad at him. Put someone who might able to put the Puck and and let him Russ that check. You know who's you know who's really pulling their weight around blocking Gold Hockey LLC company. That's Thomas nystroem our it guy and he came out with the Swedes summertime goal lacking gold hockey podcasts, shirts these very unique. I. WanNa thank him for this we had. A. Nice. Little Sale.

So, we bought some of that stuff to give away. But. We are back with toxin Bruins. had the where we're going right now. I everyone game five is tomorrow when you probably won't be hearing this. So hopefully, listen to US pretty game and you choose to send positive is I'm choosing to send positive vibes because what else can I just if not, I'll just fester angriness So gave by tomorrow at seven. PM In if there is a hockey God hopefully game sexual play Wednesday the second and game seven. On the third. So next Tuesday and Wednesday and Thursday, but that's TVD obviously as. Knows if they'll need them also, they never scheduled that far ahead because they don't know what's going to happen in this crazy two, thousand and twenty they're smart only a few. At a time so that they can quickly. Change up that. Okay. So I JUST WANNA. Ask You do you think we can win game five? I hope so I really hope so that we can try to extend this series, and like you said earlier, there's a good chance that if they win this game, they can get back in this series and and and Tampa Bay. We'll take notice of that saying here they come. You know we poked the bear and and buckle bound and get ready for this one but. Listen I'm I'm going into it very optimistic in all. It's what I've seen so far. Hasn't been pretty, but there are some things that are good I'm it's not all doom and gloom I know I understand that but. it's just this temporary team just seems do. WanNa be that that that powerhouse this year and not be a pushover like they were. Last season in the postseason with the against the combs blue jackets so It remains to be seen what team what Boston Bruin team wants to show up in which one wants to participate knees. And continue forth. That's bought it for me. Yeah I'm going with I. We have the perfect capabilities even though we haven't looked like it so much at times in the last few games especially game three. Let's all just like forget about that. It has a fluke when do the Bruins ever get? Doubt their asses like that. Don't that's the point and yes one thought game four would have been the wakeup call, but it wasn't so gained five has to be right. Oh home. Right. Exactly, trying anything like do it if anything force yourself to have one more, maybe run out and I. Think it's because they don't want to no matter how they feel. And no matter how they might be thrown off being in that bubble. I can't believe it because this team is not a good team and the whole of it. They are at least as good of a team Tampa Bay as no matter what all the pundits say. And I think if we win gave five, we can win the series. It's going if we win game five, let's go and seven. So it's going five a seven game. So sorry, anybody who predicted six you're probably on just getting now just trying to be hopeful about it. Okay. So you mentioned about Joe Haggerty had tweeted a vote like the team structure going forward type thing or something I admittedly I have. Read. So many things because you know everyone's always writing great articles are stunning tweet backings whatever. I don't specifically remember it by e wanted to bring it up someone. Let you ought to take lead when you're ready I took a screen shot of what Joe said, and it really hit home for me and I wanted to mention it but he says. At hacks tags on twitter. The unfortunate truth would bruins fans is this if the Bruins can't beat the lightning when they are without Stamkos and mcdonough, they are a long long way from winning a Stanley Cup. Now that is not only relevant for this year. But it also. Goes. Into Future. Chances in the postseasons. To, Get Stanley Cup I don't know what's going on with the core where there's a lot of these. Players that are leaders what we've seen them lead in go. It's just I. Don't know what's going on. It's not there. So moving forward. I think there's going to be a need for change. And I'm not saying drastic but there's gotta be something done to get this back. Together we do. You want to get the wound as soon as possible when it's opening gashed. Let's not set on this. Don Sweeney's got to do his due diligence. He. He needs to be that that GM that goes out and gets aggressive might be very very short off season this year. And I get that. But if you want to get back and competitive, you've got to start making changes whether it be if you can buy people out, you do it and you create roster spots that are going to be available for people look compete whether they're young veterans I don't care. You just gotTa do what needs to be done to get back on board with some of the core that you currently have I e Berge on Marshon and you know. And so. It's just something's gotta be done now, I if if they go in rolling with this almost same lineup next season and I know the caps flat. I know it's going to suck for at least two two or three seasons with that stupid cap but he's got to do something he's got to address this. In. In ways that are gonNA be able to. Manipulate. That calf, you know so. Yeah I just I. I want to see these guys went again as as a core, but I just don't see it happening completely I really don't it's things need to be changed and if it comes down to. You know. Do. We have to be that type of. of. BRUINS NATION TO, consider. It how much don? Sweeney. To blame for a lot of this stuff you know. I mean, it's a valid question. I mean his job is going to be seriously looked that if they get an early exit. Just, my opinion, this is a weird yet judge I think overall just because honestly the whole entire world has been crash out since. Actually pretty much like at least in this country sentenced January spend some kind of. Going on on all levels and usually multiple things like now. Like again, begging of the people in the Gulf right now because the last thing they needed in life was a hurricane you know kind of thing. Is Crazy. So this year is kind of like I think it's valid question to ask what dawns doing. You know what I mean sometimes and to question things I think some of it though too is like you know when everyone always wants to bring up the two thousand, fifteen draft well. I'm sorry but those kids are now like twenty, twenty three I think it's still a little too early to totally judge those players because what we've seen from those players are good things like you know what? I mean like debrusk. Sorry you might not be consistent yet you know wherever but he shows good things like he was a good pick you know. Who who else was a borough hall I know you high on right and I haven't gone to see him as much by. He seems to be you know what I mean like yeah. Has He what you? He's not Charlie McCoy Charlie. mcelroy was afraid that usually most people are Charlie mcevoy not-so-young ready and mostly you to be level and. I'm sorry I. Wish You all Zach Saination. Right he was the other one session group I. Forgot I I got but you know so things like that. But you certainly can say I won't blame him for the trade because that just have injuries. You know what I mean whatever Andrews. I can't blame him for getting ready to Din Hainan I'll say I can't blame him for sending Danton Heinen to the docks our placing he'll with Nick Ritchie who yeses a bigger body but I don't think as exactly helps because again, it least like Dan was a part of the team and like you know what I mean like the twitter twitter mentions of the Danton Heinen thing. Like when Nick Ritchie had a chance a barrier, an empty net goal of radically Tina goal. Shortly, after its the memes come out, of Danton, Heinen, Berry that that. Oh i. Love Danton Heinen but I understood something was gonNA happen at the trade deadline. But I really honestly did not think that scene was going to walk away from Tori crew like I thought and I'm not saying they won't there is still you know what I mean or whatever but. Also can ruin stop saying trade grew you can't trade him. He's done. He's done the minute free. You know you FA. FAA after the minute, he walks off his ice tactically. Doesn't that like once you leave the bubble, the free agency market in trading. Open Gio which I think is kind of after up because. What a? Cap Everyone's trying to get players by. That I think. They going to lose them both and one year like that. All the people I've defended at all these times. I do I do agree that things have obviously people are aging out like I love Chara but let's be honest. Chara may or may not be. His teeth. And he's the type of player to that. Maybe it's a little circumstantial Cova that he is the type of player that's not GonNa make a big deal about leaving either. But. It would be still growing resign him for one more year. Let's go for more time. Okay. Can we be honest if a net Karachi and dump his salary I'll teach our for another here at one under. Not like get rid of Richie and get rid of Moore. Yeah. I like John More but Oklahoma, can I say the other day though when the Excuse my language. I'm trying not to swear as much considering how angry I am at the soccer team this week I think of Domingo job especially with efforts and but. John Wa yes. Does not help the situation right by game three everyone mostly as to blame. Okay it's not Yaro. It's not Tori and Brandon. It's not John Wall. I'm not saying that help the situation has everybody everybody is include easy to blame Dan Glenda get all over him right because you don't want to say what? The Pasta Bury the PUCK, right you don't WanNa say that to him or whatever everyone it's easier to blame. Kasha. Who is not doing anything else to the top six aren't doing not getting the puck in the net necessarily what not looking at you Brad marched on doing your job You know. But if you look at it actually that kid has been helping generate a lot you know at least again, some of those players look like they have no pulse on the ice and the other ones who do have a pulse or so frustrated, they can't be effective you kind of thing or. As a team. So But you're right. The core is like we're not gonNA have. The Low Weight Patrice Bergeron? Be a bruin forever, and that's a reality and not do display a hard fifteen years of hockey. He's not a soft. Even when he was a kid and that's why like a minute we had him as like Oh yeah. This is GonNa be good and it's been a pleasure watching his career but marshawn all of them they're aging out. So we really do have to take a hard look of what we can do with the call we have which probably is not this year I. Think I'm not saying we. Would have won the COP, but we were on pace that we were going to be deservedly a couple of hours right regular. You're the best team wins. That's not an excuse if we lose, we lose because we didn't show United I'm not using that as an excuse but if there were a range into this core and it did kind of burn notice one year of our playoffs in some way. Non Excuse they can show up tomorrow and get back at Union. So the bill didn't happen. But we're also need to, and this is something may be something for you intend to think about just a Muslim round though is we also have to do a deep dive of exactly what we want happening in our far. Now I don't WanNa say farms the baseball. Star, but you know like in. Our affiliates and The players we have signed around who are we seriously trying to make the next core of this team? We Know Charlie mcevoy, we think random Carlo. He's had a rough about the last few weeks. But again, until two weeks ago, Brandon College, you know for defense like we're moving on is Matt grizzly going to nuys beat toy group but they are you know they are pretty similar in play also as much as they are different. Is, can he fell in the gap help their anyone down that can come up to help fill in the rest of any gaps. If you lose Jarrah in whatever you know what I mean off at just the structure that is now you have to have a real conversation though how many of these prospects are you really truly do like how long the I know? I'm not a trend. Frederick Person. But if you truly think threat Frederick can come up here and be a hard line player on this team I'm not against him coming up to I haven't seen it. But if that's the case, how long do you hold onto players? Who for you say like we used to joke how many centers is won? T need you know whatever? We need to look at too. It's not just about salary cap and you need to make those decisions why you have a lot of these young people under their entry level deals and stuff like that before you have to start asking how much you're GONNA pay him so We, do need to but we also right now need to look and see what the hell we can do right now to continue in this round you know. What do you think? What do you think is the most that we transition because whereas INARA transition we're kind of at the end of this two thousand. Eleven Cup winning era are a even though it's not the same team again, there is a a chunk of the same players that were affiliated with this team. What do you think we're going to have to I think you're pretty confident with our goaltending looks like future, right? Yes. Say Biden. I. Do I do. At least for one year, I believe that grass is GonNa come back and contractually obligate his last season and I think we obviously know that. Yaro signed for one more year so that that creates a a really nice. Our space for for Dr the swimming Jeremy Wayman to get his first. Aid Shell Action I believe. And and develop properly and in you know we'll see what happens. If they play very good down there, you could see I could actually see. US WAYMAN VIDAR NHL tandem as soon as next after next season. You know. If. They WanNa go and my thought is driven by the CAP if you want to insert two goaltenders and Roll the dice. You'RE GONNA save a ton of money because they're all the both both are going to be under a million dollars under their current deals. Voter is not ELC swimming would be so. We're going to be under a million. Piece so And you can save. You can get as much money as you want out of that to put it towards other players like a right wing on the second line or wherever you need. A space fill? So. But is that smart idea? Not really not really at all and I've heard so many ideas right now that people is frustrated with two because what he did, he bailed on his team a whatever you know and people just don't have the rights anymore as a human to do what's right for family and so on. So stick it but. You know it's I believe that they could do good but it's it's not an ideal situation and there's a lot of ideas out floating around that they they should trade to. Or if he doesn't if he doesn't. If he doesn't come back and he retires to go get Marc Andre Fleury I just think ten. You Nam I like I like I like maf everything but man, it's just you don't WanNa goaltender like that. He carries a pretty significant amount of cap space. So that really doesn't do anything when it concerns that so I mean it remains to be seen. With two I agree with you I think he's coming back to play his last year. Menendez. He's retiring. He wants you know you don't leave money on the table like that. You just don't want that. He'll finish his last year. I'm not saying he won't retire and not even mean like he might be done after next year. That being said. If, he does choose to retire and that's between him and the team, and that's a huge buyout unanimity Mo- it's not a Biot-. He's he's he's walking away on he's walking. Out Tires no money is oh damn. Okay. So I'm confused at Sunday morning. Jesus man what I was GonNa say is that I'm perfectly comfortable if we're going to struggle either way as some of these people aren't members of this evens, Dana Jar, who's you know who actually is looking better our knowledge getting his legs on ear like he's still functioning a little bit you know. But again, it's hard to put him under the live or stove when everyone has but as players leave right like whether the laws it char hate him whatever he is someone who either way you can't not respect him and you. CanNot not respect the fact is by one of the longest serving captains and as always done his best to make this team, the best they can be right. So players like that know whatever Tories went there whatever but we are Lee said is sometime to is not gonna be the goaltender and Patrice Bergeron isn't going to be our top line center and even David Krejci might not be is not GonNa wind sent me you know our our top to such as I'll just say this as we said interchangeable and our hearts and in our lineup as necessary I am comfortable with Yaroslava. Lock. And I guess you would say Blida Right? Because I mean swimming he's GonNa Still Dip as toes. He can't be you know that's Titan don't develop someone with coffee is by doing that. I'm comfortable with that for this next year because I know Yarrow show up next year you know. Maybe this playoff would be you know. We're not the way we visited it right with heaven to complain off of each other as necessary to get the team through. But I am comfortable if for a transition yeah, we need to next share ride out into the sunset with KALAC plane on his last year and whatever. That might be hawks last year because he's thirty five, holly has last year I wouldn't sign him a long-term. Why just meet him generally as a player he's had his career. He's been a been back. Why wouldn't find him one serve me. But? I agree with you I think to we'll be back I. Think the minute to goes back I. Feel. Like because everyone loves to give took is playing by actually speaking to guide do WanNa touch on something else the they'll have the Boston. The Boston Police patrolman's association. tweeted out fourteen hours ago this probably now sixteen hours ago. say what you want about to grasp but few pro athletes have done more behind the scenes charity work he's been working with the. Boston Police Department hockey team for years in a program Blue Line pals created to give inner city kids a chance to meet and see the NHL Bruins for free and that's the Hashtag to gusts all. Day going back to the zoom video that was captured with him having the hat on and so on Out of you know to make a point. It's because he's been so close with his team in the actually had a hat on hand happen to be a bpd hatsaw. Stick it again to all the haters out there that think that he was making some kind of political statement saw. Hate that Shit. God. But anyway. Like it's not politics but like it is possible that. You know. Not. All. Sides of whoever whatever I don't you know specific things it's like. Everything doesn't have to be political and you can actually support many different community organizations that perhaps all work towards the same goals. Again. We envision a society that we want right and I not judging either way I. do think it's stupid like I do think sometimes a hats, just a hat and a Blue Line is just the Blue Line and whatever your. Party very, very sensitive. Say That's part of the like you know sometimes where we get. So messages get lost like you know and 'cause we're always young but. It is possible actually that there are communities and this is just an observation as a kid that grow up in Metro Boston the Boston Police Department when it comes to although not perfect race relations generally are so much better now than they were when I was a kid, I can remember like after Charles. Stewart like literally just going into Natapei. unceremoniously making every black man in not in which you've never been to matter a lot of black men. Suspects in a murder that none of them committed because while that's white privilege asshole research. Me So I just mean like there are communities that different groups that right now because we always are our divide ups in this and that you know that actually are doing what I said earlier like we envisioned the society we want and we're all working to hopefully all go goals that we're raising good citizens who are responsible for kind loving that also give back to their communities and that's A So, it just seems sometimes a hat to hat. So you brought enough guy I know. You did bring it up I. Know I know but look style at Bruins. Talk we got. Actually. Looking thing I'll. Say. The next things. Well, that was last Pacific Berlin thing we only have a couple other just I would like to say as much as Mike Milbury has an grubby hockey guy who may or may not be a misogynist or an imagined massage whatever and Jeremy Reuben is definitely like. A crazy guy. He always has even when he was a young player, right? He is not done anything to help themselves getting the hockey hall of fame. Let's just say okay The NBC announcers are boring I love and respect them. But you what might Mellberg in Jeremy that not all of you I'm not calling anyone specifically I would like to say I love and respect. All of the people work hard at and BC. But this is not gonNA grow young fans to want to tune in to hear. Some of these talk people talking. They have less pulse than half the Bruins team yesterday and on you know whatever game three. I can't if you want to grow the sport if you don't first of all, not GonNa, let us always have access to the games and you're gonNA black things and this and that, and that's how you stupid contracts right now with the TV. That's fine because you at least entertain us a little bit. I'm just saying I. I again, I love and respect all the NBC's of not just me because I saw fans like I never again WanNa hear that Mike. Milbury is a homer when Eddie Olczyk who I love I respect more than anything is also giant homer and no one says anything about that. You know just I I, like Mike Emrick in everything but I just don't. I'm just done I've done with Mike in we move on get some youth full. People in the in the in the booth. Only, there's only so many times you can actually hear David, Krejci. A native of Czech Republic and is a potato farmer in Bruges his own fucker you know come on. I'm so sick of hearing stuff like that. I get the feeling. that. The NHL really wants the Bruins to not succeed even when they are succeeding whenever you listen to it and I think I've made it clear how I feel about our home broadcast. So it's not a look if I was doing it. No, it's not even that it's just gotta be young broadcasters, four players or someone who can help spice up these Brian Castle little because hockey is fast. Exciting is is instill encapsulated in an old crusty dusty kind of like. Back in my. Day Way Gretzky. I'm only kidding enough to Halloween Garrett's gain to. I'm just. Yeah, I need them to stop and I mean. We we sadly, we do need the Mike Navarrese in the row necks and the. Stars of the world to help keep the debate in the interest owing. Agree Catherine Tapa give it a try. I WANNA see what? On totally. I'm totally for a Catherine. Tappin lead. In this. Yeah. I'm not being facetious either I think she's had enough experience she call. Ash She's in she's grown with the sport or whatever then. anyways that's my NBC. Announced Iran. You had also brought up about this. Crazy. NHL. Wanted yet this is an idea that the NHL and the NHLPA are discussing. Moving forward, into next season. It's it's really going to be interesting how this all pans out because of the. Asan seats factor and ownerships each individual NHL, ownership making money. But there's a there's been talks they have sat down and talked about a bubble situation for the regular season next year it looks to me and from several sources that I've spoken to is that they want to move forward with this for at least a year. So there's an idea of this of four bubbles across. Either to in Canada or two in the United States will all four in the United States? Before separate sections to hold. Several. Teams more than several teams but. And do like an eight game day schedule. I don't know how it's GonNa work but. I kinda think they have to have this in place much like they had the twenty twenty playoffs and the return to play in place back in March you have to have an idea moving forward. In case, it doesn't work. You have a fallback plan I believe that these talks have to happen because the fact is that there isn't a vaccine yet. So moving forward, they might consider the bubble four separate bubbles as a way of getting on a regular season done which is not is not ideal in my opinion because the way the Boston bruins playing in the bubble right now has been less than attractive thing to watch, and that's just me I'm a passionate guy but. It's certainly going to be tough. So it's going to be so important to get a vaccine on whether you get it done halfway through the season next year or at the beginning who knows but we'll see what happens. But that is the general idea moving forward I don't know how the L. and lower minor leagues are going to operate with this mentality to because they're also Seto began their seasons in early. December so. It's going to be interesting how we're going to move forward with all of this. But it is important that they do have something to talk about moving moving forward. In just to be clear, we're not saying that no one's voted on it. It's not what's happened is just what something it's what's been talked about. It actually sounds kind of the way that they Well I mean obviously, it's not like details but like Woodley doubt because I know in the first kind of tweets came out about them considering this the players association and they were all. Members to be like. Well, you know it's not like we've actually just talked about it. It's not like you're not even before it gets out there like oh we're around bubbles. Actually seems kind of interesting though to think. Especially if They could alleviate some of the stress of what's going on Maybe, now that they've learned what to do if things are a little better come December when we're starting if you have the bubbles, maybe there's a little more opportunity for the families to join them. If you're going to do regional bubbles, things like that I think that's interesting for them to talk about these kinds of situations because they're going to learn from this bubble and. I believe I believe that's a big thing what they're gonNA do because they have the time. In, the offseason saw the way actually my wife Courtney, we were talking about this yesterday have been watching the game. The you need to have fifty four days off mandatory. That is a union rule. It's much like. The common workers weekends you know we we have to have time off to. decompress Blah Blah, and then start another workweek so much like that you have to have fifty four days. So I did account and as of October six, when the NHL is technically supposed to be done with their the playoffs fifty four days from that is technically. That, you have one day free before you technically supposed to start the twenty. Twenty one season. So it is is extremely tight but here's the thing though is during that fifty four days off I believe it's going to be mandatory that you figure out who you're gonNA bring into the four bubbles. Well, it depends on where the bubbles strategically and geographically and so on. And then you're going to have to quarantine together if you're moving forward with this group of people. You need to like do the same thing and then when you get into the bubble were all safe and this and that, but you'll be together you'd be with family and you'd be able to do some of these. Things that like Toronto what they're doing is remarkable. The workout facilities that they have ping pong tables, smash ball the field right next door. It's it's pretty cool. But the element of having your family there is also important too. So I think that that's a big thing moving forward between these two sides when it comes to just discussing I think that if that's the route that go and again, there's no, you know that's. GonNa be a very hard ask though not just on the players, but to get places to agree do what? Toronto late is the city of Toronto going to be willing to continue to keep their bubble. You know what I mean things like that like If you're looking for to other, you're going to have to find to other cities whether they being Canada or in the United States. we've talked about this due to the fact. That most of the teams are in the United States if it's possible to find a place to quarantine, but again, you can't wait just stick them in the middle of Nowhere Wisconsin which I'm sure has plenty of lovely hockey facilities by. Not, going to help with the. Keeping normal life you feel like when you're working for an NHL city, you know. That's why they had the offseason. So they can go except for you know obviously some of them lake bright burns cooking up some burgers on his ranch. She does that is odd time but. That's going to a big ask for governments and cities is especially. 'cause we don't know what's going on health wise though whatever we don't really know keep even just hearing those viruses like we are in the third wait. No, it's like but some people say we're in the third wave of the first wave of the second wave whatever all I know is I'm a new Englander and that means flu season's going to start in two months. So the more we you know. So just I mean there's a lot to consider. In it's not a lot of time to get it done. So I don't know if they do go for with that planet that doesn't throw off the December fourth year on your birthday timeline for the hockey league's north. America to really get going like ones. In. The major minor ones you know what I mean job 'cause they all seem to be starting around that time right? the first book. Stuff like that. So well, the junior leagues up in Canada they're they're they're looking at. Late. October. They normally they normally start late September the. Beck major junior hockey league, the Antero Hockey League and the WHOL normally just September late September styles, but they're going to bump it up a month. So that's good news. There's no bruins prospects up there. So I'm not really overly thrilled about that but we'll see because the draft is GonNa Happen. But. Kind of Sucky. This fricken thing because the drafts going to happen, but then these players are going to be playing. You know it's Of Weird So anyway. Let's end that there. Right. Yup that's all we have besides are. Unless you have anything else. That's all I have I don't. We did not have any SPN PNG's today kind of. Was a brain fart on that one I just been so busy.

La Greca & DiPietro
"The lease. Is that game misconduct podcast with Don league-record and welcome to the Wednesday. They should have game. It's conduct. I'm Don league-record, and who was floating around the studio that I wanted to put on former great goaltender for the out. Now, you can hear them on Humpty Canty and Rothenberg a ninety eight seventy SPN New York between the hours of ten and one is Ricky Piatra. What's up man was gone Donny you're hanging around 'cause you're founder went to go see frozen. I just liked the just hang around for that. I was hanging on to be on this podcast. They go ask listen, I gotta take advantage islanders. They said by the wildcard were in third place in the metro feeling good big win last night. You gotta love it. Because Saint Louis is starting to play better under Craig Baru be and they started winning some games surprises to people. They beat the capitals the other night capital's kind of lose a couple of tough games here. One thing lose to Nashville, but to lose to Saint Louis that was a little disturbing. But I wanted to throw it out. And I throw it out on Twitter earlier this morning. You know, one recap the games pre the games coming up tonight. But I I want I wanted to ask everyone the question, and I'll ask you who's got the best chance to be Tampa. Because it's been a long time. Rick since we've seen a team this much better than everybody else. I think I saw the stat that when they had a twelve point lead on Toronto in like December. That was like the earliest team had that kind of a lead since the original six era. I mean, this is no joke. Now, I'm not guaranteeing any kind of win. But whose beat them who's beat him in the east? I think the team that you would point to in the east is maybe Washington, right? Because I mean, they've they've been able to do it. I just think with Tampa. And if that team stays healthy as deep as they are as. Counted as they are. I mean, the the additions that they made last year at the deadline. I mean, it's funny how mcdonagh here. He's your captain, you decide to par ways. And all of a sudden now he's in Tampa surrounded by that much talent. And now he's in the conversation for the north twenty talent does. But I mean as far as top the bottom, I love as less. I think it was a blessing in disguise actually that he missed some time because last season the they played them too much. And you know, I think the teams that I would point would probably be in the east the Washington team. And then as far as the west, I really like national I really like Winnipeg. Albery? I dunno Calgary yet. I mean, I'm not sold on their on their goaltending situation. I'm not I mean, I think listen the fact that I was in locker rooms with Keith kachuck watching this little kids run around play mini sticks. And now they're doing what they're doing in the NHL. I know right. It's amazing to me. But I just think when you look at a team like nationally look at a team like Winnipeg, and you see what they're capable of doing. They have the talent they have the grid. You know, when they've done a, you know, this you watched enough hockey that when you hit the playoffs and you start adding that element game slows down a little bit element the size the physicality those. I mean, those are two teams I listen I thought Winnipeg last year was geared up and ready to to get to the Stanley Cup finals. And they got they ran into Vegas Vegas. And I think also hurt them that they had such a difficult opponent second round in Nashville because of the stupid convoluted where the NHL does their playoff system. They can have two teams that good plane in the second round. And then Vegas. I had an easier path and credit to them, but they only just ran through everybody. With Los Angeles, and San Jose and Winnipeg had to go at it with against what I thought at the time is the best team in the NHL beat them. And then they didn't have very much left. So really depends on how it's gonna work itself out. So we could talk about western teams Calgary Winnipeg Nashville, but the team where they can get picked off. I think it'd be in the east because of the way it situated here. And the scary thing about why teams are playing now. Oh, I love Toronto. They score a lot of goals. They're struggling now. All of a sudden they've kinda hit a little bit of wall. Anderson not healthy. They've got to defend better. I mean all of the defensemen or all or offensive guys. Boston's creeping up their dangerous Tronto could fall right out of the playoffs. The way the Anders are playing right now the way Montreal is playing. So I think Washington's got a shock as they did it last year they can be feisty with Wilson. They've got Ovechkin that can dominate and they've got a goaltender that's been there. And they've done that outside of that. I don't believe in Pittsburgh. I think they got exposed on this western trip. I don't think there's very d. On the blue line enough to make a serious run to the cop outside of that Boston healthy. Do you like they're young defense minute. Big spotlight Carlo like McEvoy is that their achilles heel. Is it Rask? I don't think it's Rask. I'm when I look at it in Hawass been great for them for me for my money. I mean, you can say what you want about to grasp. He's one of my favorite goal is to watch the NFL. I think he's rock-solid. I think when you look at a team like Boston. I mean that that's an interesting team because that's another team in in. I always say this people, and they ask me, you know, which teams do you feel good about I like teams that can be versatile. I like teams that if you wanna play an uptempo fast speed game with skill. I can play that. If we want to slow this thing down at some physicality. We wanna scrap it up a little bit. Yeah. We do that too in Boston's one of those teams that can do that. And you're right about Toronto. I mean, they have all the talent in the world offense. But if they don't figure out a way in their defensive zone to figure it out because you're right when when Aniston's not healthy that team struggles, and we have David quit on our show. We try to get him on once a week when we come on. He said the biggest thing that he's noticed about the Joe is is how close these games are all every night. It's unbelievable. And it just puts an emphasis on you know, what you do defensively. How good your special teams are in more importantly, and I think you saw this with the Rangers. I. Hand when Henrik was the top of his game. I mean that can compete when he's not if there's one goal a game where he says themself. I probably should have had that one. You got no chance there, and they got young depend can get exposed. So who's the Ron Haines -i who's the guy that you can trade for at the deadline that can help Toronto with the blue line. See I think the Rangers are an interesting team like that further name mcquaid that defenseman like that the grit that that he can you step in and just be just be a presence be solved. The a good good solid offensively put them, you know, with one of those guys is going to go up there kind of joined the play more often than not that kind of solidify that position. I mean, that's that's kind of what you're looking for. If you turn with this point. Yeah. Because I'm not looking for because you look at the the teams that aren't gonna make the playoffs like the ackman. Larson's aren't the guys they need. They need a stay at home defenceman. They can give you thirty minutes at a big playoff spot. Shut down the opposition stand in front of the net cleared out on carry scores. A point as long as he's his plus minus plus ten the end of the series. Look at these teams. Right. I mean look at the Washington Capitals last year. I mean, you got a guy like Brooks orbit, and he's not gonna do anything. He's not gonna while you offense. But that's that's right. That's kinda got you need. I mean, this Stroman that was one of the biggest losses. I think in my opinion for the Rangers was Anton Stroman because that guy is just I mean, he's just a solid defensive defensemen. Will you know, what killed them not to get off the beaten path here, but the not resigning Stroman force them to trade for Yandell. So it was like a domino effect. And then you would end up losing you lose declare who beat him the other night with a nice individual effort with Columbus. Columbus is a team. Let's throw them out there. All right. Very well coached. Okay. Panara n- if he gets hot aci- having a great year little worried about Broschi in a big spot. You like their blue line is is data team that maybe we need to pay more attention to the east. It's a well coached team. I do like Brodsky a lot. That's another one of those situations though. I mean, I listen I love John Tortorella. But he's not the easiest co sometimes get along with on fact that I mean, you talked to a lot of people I have never heard one bad word above Rossi. They said hardest working on the team always shows up solid. Guys, one Venice like he's he's the real deal and for them that kind of problem the contract. That's what it is. I get it. When I was there earlier in the year, they said the pan-arab rob ski contract negotiations are a major problem for this team. And if they stink they trade him. Problem solved. You can't trade him. If you're gonna finish the second or third in the division. Maybe they'd never made a run. They've never been out of the first round U Penn there. It's a great building. It's a fan base starting to grow. How do you have a chance to make the playoffs to trade those two guys away? You can't going to. I mean, those are. I mean, those are two vital pieces. I if you're gonna make run on their forget this and you'll love the story. So, you know, speaking of torts knit, and it's funny. These having this kind of problem with with Roszke, so we're planning the world championships. Nice the buses shops, though times they hate towards you know, my my wife's family's from Tampa me. And you America. Guys, put us together. Win a Stanley Cup. Kept pestering was that a pizza place made of a pizza? Finally, practic- Grozny goes this. What's your problem? I said what do you mean? What's my problem? He goes I a goalie in Tampa hobby Boone that won't talk to me, and you won't shut the bleep up. No, he can't Stangl. Those doesn't get it. They speak a different language to him. It's amazing. He that's why he loved to be in New York you'd have to worry about hang can coach himself. You know, let them while layer deal with he doesn't like the deal with goaltender. So you're probably Apas asked. He couldn't take couldn't take him. He had enough. He's like, okay. Let's just you just do your thing. I'm gonna do my thing and leave me alone. We're kind of all over the place here. But I just love talking hockey within throw anything at you. And you're prepared for it. But it's it's fun. Just talking about the conference and then the west is to kind of open as well. Like who's the best team in the west right now is it is it Calgary? Is it Nashville like you said you love Winnipeg? But one of those two teams are going to be out in the second round. And I hate that that doesn't eight niece it what you want. I mean, the you you want the at the end of it you want. What you think is going to be the best team? You're right. I think the Winnipeg like when I watched Winnipeg in because I thought national was gonna be was my pick to get out of the west last year. And then all of a sudden Winnipeg did to Nashville. And I'm like met Nashville. I mean, national was my favorite team. All of a sudden Winnipeg does what they do. There's no way Winnipeg's Vegas and all of a sudden. Vegas was going to go down in every series. I'm like well the kings. They got experience they're going to beat them. All San Jose's finally going to beat them. Whole Winnipeg is so much better than Washington. Eventually did it, and, you know, Vegas starting to get back into the conversation again, they're flurries. Been healthy Carlson starting to score goals for them. He got back all of a sudden things amazing. Right. It is amazing in Florida. I mean what floor has been able to do. I mean, you wanna talk about a perfect fit new team what he's done so far. I mean solidified that position that's a good team. And you're right. I mean that team starting to kinda hit their stride and figure it back out. But I mean Calgary's one of those those weird teams where again, you're not I'm not in love with that team. But every time I watched them play. I'm impressed by the team. Like, I'm a little hesitant to be all in with them. Just because we haven't I don't feel like I've seen enough yet. But I mean between Johnny hockey woke Chuck is doing they're actually getting. I mean, they're actually getting solid goaltending at the moment. And that's that's a fun fast team to watch play hockey while the the deals they made to solidify the blue line. I thought they underachieve defensively. And now, I think they've got a solid core. Six guys. And now you said good DRO is taking advantage of the new NHL. He couldn't played twenty years ago you killed. But here he's he he's third league scoring last time. I checked Monaghan quietly. Got twenty five goals. So I think Calgary's in the conversation about this. I wanna get your opinion on this San Jose underachieve so far this year, everything you could say about San Jose up to now. Now they've gotten they've warmed up. They'd be Pittsburgh last night is what you said about Washington if that team gets hot they've got the talent they do. I don't know if you're Jones fan, but they can score they can defend now, maybe this team will figure it out. But we're having a conversation December what's wrong with the Washington Capitals. They won the Cup. You know, San Jose has gone to the playoffs. Do you like them? No, I like, San Jose. When you look what they've done. I mean, especially over the last ten they're not one over the last ten for me a lot of what I look at as far as how I judge teams is the lot of its goal differential. You know, what I mean like how good you are with your goal differential in a team like that. And I mean, just just look at their blue line. I mean with Carlson in burns. I didn't realize how good burns shot was like I'm watching some of these games. He's got an absolute howitzer. I think with with that team if they can if. They can come to grips with the fact we're salt in the defensive zone. We give up less second and third chances one in Duns the offense will take care of itself if we can lock it down a little bit just a little bit defensively. We got enough talent we can move the park. We've got a great powerplay. We'll be able to figure that out. I think I think Jones for me is he solid, but if you're going to ask him to start I don't put him, and I know people love Jones, they reminds me a lot of carry price. That's that's overstating it a little bit. But there's guys like Vazza Leschi Brodsky guys like that that, you know, Hank when he's at his best. They can make Jonathan quick second third force as they can steal your game. If US Jones, okay. I can see it save it. We're gonna take care of the robot. It's about second third opportunities. Yeah. That's a really good team. I just are they doing that? That's the real question. Now you said goal differential. San Jose's fifty plus twenty nine. Okay, winnipeg. You love 'em plus thirty one up fourth. All right Toronto despite their holes, plus thirty three that's. Third Calgary's plus forty Tempus plus fifty eight crazy eighteen more than the second place team. Neil Smith brought it up to me when I did any chill out with him. When we came out of a lockout he said with this with this new point system, we get a point for a loss in overtime in the whole shootout and everything the true indicator goal differential, and you're right. Look at the teams Negga Tampa Calgary Toronto, Winnipeg San Jose Nashville. Pittsburgh Washington nut the top eight the islanders the islanders. Our ninth plus a goal differential plus sixteen or eighteen Vegas is a plus sixteen the that's the indicator right there. Now Toronto I think is doing it because they're outscoring their mistakes that scary. The other teams I think are doing it because they're good on both sides of the puck. You have to be. I mean at this point with all this kind of speed that you have in the it really for me. It comes down to. I think you start to see this the further we get along in the season is is good solid defensive zone. Structure taken advantage of your special teams. Having a good penalty kill taking advantage of the opportunity to have on the power play. And getting Saul goaltending in you bring up you know, Tampa goal differential. I mean when you look at that team. I mean, I I think sometimes you overlook how good because kucherov has been that good. How good Steven stamkos? Steven stamkos one of the best goal score. And you know, he's not one hundred percent. He's not hundred percent. But I I mean, Brayden point stamkos he got. I mean Yanni Gord who I love go top to bottom Polat. I mean, that's an unbelievable that that is a in was surprising to vitamin step away. Now when it seems like they're on the cusp of finally getting over that hurdle face they healthy. I mean, that's a well put together team you wanna take so much. We hear whatever you want Darnall says he has to questions do you think the devils do the right thing giving Hines a contract extension and of the owners make the playoffs to you think? They're game should be at the Coliseum while they should be at the Coliseum. What I heard is Louis really pushing it for it to be at the Coliseum. But the Hines thing was interesting. I think he's a good coach. I think the devils wanted to. Have that stability giving the contract extension, and I don't blame him Shiro didn't do anything during the off season to improve this team. But did you think the timing was right? No. I think they I think they needed to reassure the team that, you know, highs. He was going to be around. I had a chance to work with the US program. I like him a lot. I think they wanna put him in a spot to kind of grow with this young team. When you look at that, you know that situation now, you're right. I mean, they didn't make any any big moves in the offseason to make this team better. I mean, you had the MVP Taylor hall. I mean, I don't wanna say shocked, but the I mean the way he played last year was was I mean, the reason the boy was a whole different level. And on top of that. I mean, the biggest moment for me has been has been Cory Schneider. Yeah. He's not a they don't have a number one goal. No. They don't I in people don't understand this as good as Keith Kincaid played last year. There's a big difference between being the guy and being the backup. Right. When you're asked to fill in occasionally, or if you get hurt, and you gotta fill in for a couple of weeks you can deal with that. But the reason why they're starting goalies in backup goalies, and you're paying. To be that guy that difference maker. And with the injuries everything else. He has been them. I'll no I need to see more Blackwood to determine that. He's a number one goaltender to forever t h ask the question if the lightning fail to win this season. Would you consider this? A major disappointment also Tampa go all in an ad rental. Like Panara n-. I think the low at this point. I think they'll do whatever takes I think when you look at this team. I mean, how well this teams played this is and like you mentioned it. I mean, you ask the question how many teams in these can beat them in the only I mean really team that you feel good about saying could beat them as maybe Washington 'cause I mean the Stanley Cup champions. But I mean outside of that. I I don't feel good about both the other teams in the east having a great chance to beat this team. Now, they've been abroad made for too long here. They won that four. But losing the Stanley Cup final and fifteen even go back to twenty seven lost in the conference. Final lost in the conference final last year. I think John Cooper's heck of a coach. But you're right at some point. And I brought up the word point. Ironically, that's a guy they're gonna have to deal with they're gonna that's gonna be another knee Lander Monir situation. They're going to have to fork over money too. Him. I'm gonna go get sixty one points. And that's it's it's it's sick irreligious. He's twenty nine goals. Donnie pucks and pugs says Tuesday, you talked about the jackass which I do have a vote for what you thought on Travis green. He's got the Cox playing better than anyone. I think he's done a terrific job. I wouldn't have him in my top three. Because I think Bill Peters right now is the favourite the head coach of the Calgary Flames. But at screens denigrate job with Canucks. Yeah. He has a and that was the guy who I mean, that's that's not an easy situation. I mean, we kind of joked before the season with you know, that was the team the story came out that you know, they had to say no more night. But I mean, that's I mean, that's you're talking about a guy who's dealing with a lot of young players. And that's not. I mean, that's not easy to do. He's got an old school mentality. And all of a sudden adapt that to to these young kids as easy, so yeah, you're right. But I would lean towards what you said too. I mean, what Peters is done with Calgary's been has been I didn't expect it. It's been you know, really spectacular. So he favorite in Barry trot test to be in the top three as well. I mean, how are easily win because you could actually. We see it. Rick. Right. I mean, no offense to anybody. That's ever coached there. But I've covered that team and watch that team are far for a long time. And he's the best coach they've had Cintel Arbor. And you can actually see the way they play the coaching effect. It's not even a question. I mean, it was amazing. I was doing some pre-game self with the the blues last night before that game in going through some of the stats and everything else. They give up a full goal less this year than they give them last year. And it's not like, they added talent. I mean, you got rid of your best player. I mean bars L stepped up you lost errors, you really add anything, and this is a complete different team. You watch them in the defensive zone. And you always hear the catchphrase for all these coaches you wash the post game post game press conferences structure structure structure in like a casual offensive. Well, what the hell does he mean structure and watch the play defense zone. And you kind of get an idea with structure means it's a five man unit. And I mean, listen anyone expect Robin Leonard have the the best stats in the NHL right now. No, no, no idea. And he's been unbelievable for them. So that's a testament to him in. I think it was you know, coming from that team being around that team law. It was like I got to the point where you know, what we don't know. You don't know what it takes the win. We gotta bring someone in that does and Lula emerald came in completely changed everything. And you get a Stanley Cup champion head coach Christina says with quick sadly, most likely on the trade bloc which teams would benefit most for him. And what could the kings get return? Let me just say this when I was out in LA a couple of months ago legitimate conversation. That quick is done. He's had major catastrophic injuries to his lower body over the last couple of years. Listen to time Stanley Cup champion and as much as learners played. Well, I'd love to be able to add quick to the islanders. But what quicker? My getting Rick because I'm not sure that maybe he can't stand up to the rigors of along playoff series playing every other day trying to make a run because he's been so banged up. Yeah. Here's what I will say they'll about him is in you're right. I mean, we talk when he talked about someone that plays the position as athletically plays in. I mean, he is he he's all over the place. He needs to be physically hundred percent back all the things that he's dealt with. I would be a little bit concerned about that. But when you watch the way the islanders play in the defensive zone. I mean, you could make the argument that not gonna ask him to be the guy to steal all these games. So maybe he would hold up. But that would definitely be upgrade at that position. Would you do that? If you were the honors I would consider his lives in Connecticut. I mean, I would consider it. It couldn't hurt anything. The biggest thing for the islanders is I do think on the back end if they're going to go for this thing, I think they'll be a playoff team. But if they're gonna make you know start upgrading this team. The back end you could use some help on on the defensive side of it down. And but that everybody's looking for that. Maybe the best teams we're looking for that Phil says listen to Monday's podcast and someone asked about Jack Adams award pens fan so on bias. But how come Mike Sullivan is never mentioned for that award? Is it because he has sit in Gino, not everyone can coach them just ask my Johnston. It's true. I think it's it's the same thing that Mike Babcock always went through the expectations are always high. So when they win they're supposed to when they lose to tremendous disappointment. But I remember Mike is the assistant Terrell with the Rangers. He's a heck of a coach plays a great coach. I mean, he's an absolutely fantastic coach. And you're right. I think he's hurt by the fact that he's got all that talent. I mean when you have Sidney Crosby getting Malcolm in Phil kessel la- tangle the point Murray. I mean, the fact that he's. Been able to do what he's done. I mean, you're expected to win. Chris big flyer. Fan says, hey, Don, he didn't know you were on some sure he'll say hi to Reagan's. Well as a follow up to your common yesterday about Toronto needing defensemen. Do you think they could trade at least cabin to the flyers for Simmons or good as good as having a solid season? And will keep players heads up with his heart hits. I'm not a good est fan. I think he gets way too much trouble. Sometimes those hits Simmons would be a nice ad. I I don't know how that helps Toronto though minute enough physical. If I probably would take goods over Simmons. But I don't think that answers your question to keep in the puck out of that. No. That's the biggest thing for me to. I mean you like the physicality of both players. I think Simmons definitely when you add the grit what he's able to do on the power play especially in front of that. I mean Jonah there's is kind of incorporated some of that and to his game this season. They don't have a skilled efficiency the problem with Gouda is I mean, he does he does. He's a risky. He's a risk taker. Right. So he does. I mean, big hit whatever it is. He does get caught up is any less of that. I just need. Gimme. Cincy. You know what I mean back there? Good. I pass pucks in pucks. Oh, like, it's not rocket science here. It's a lost. Art Reeves helps the the biggest Golden Knights with that. We know what Wilson can do. But here's the difference with Wilson and guy. Like goodness. We'll play on the top line. He has skill. You know, so I can give him twenty minutes in a big game. Now, he might get suspended. That's a problem. But I'm not sacrificing anything by putting him on the ice. The those days are over now agai like McLeod with the Rangers. I mean, I like them he adds a little physicality, but if they were playing a best seven series, like how many how many teams would you face that you felt like you needed to have Cody McLeod out there. It was only like four of them in the league. Yeah. I mean, it would be situational. I mean, that's would be. That's what makes Wilson special as much as he drives me crazy and he plays in the first line. Right. But most of these guys play on the fourth line. And do you want your fourth line out there? You know when you look into score goal. No. You don't on top that especially when you're situation. I mean, how much how much time is your spending on the ice unless the line, which is mean, it's more of an energy than in the else plan. I mean, you're absolutely right. I clearly took advantage of today. But I wanna keep you just for couple more quick hits. Okay. You played Nestle. It's january. We're in the middle of the year. You see Toronto lose. I mean, you see Washington lose a couple of games in a row. Pittsburgh looks like they're kind of days is there that dog days of a season? Where don't look at the losses so much now because they might not be completely engaged in what's going on. Yeah. I think there's some of that. I mean, you know, it feels like as soon as you hit Christmas you start getting towards especially the by week. Now you start getting towards the all star break. This is when it becomes a grind. And. The unfortunate thing in the NHL with eighty two games in. How the schedules constructed? I mean, you experience it with the with the Rangers when you look at their schedule. It's every other night, you're playing I mean road trips you lent at seven o'clock in the morning, and then two days later, you're playing a game is there's really no time to get better. Right. Like the things that you need to work on in fixing correct? To to help you during a game. It's it's more about than anything else. I think is are mentally less physically physically tired. But mentally, you're just at this point drained a little bit. You know, what I understand that? Especially for the time that you played take a look at this league, Washington putz around there five hundred they just lost first place. All right. They could fall there. Only three points ahead of the Allders in the game in hand, you might have to play on the road because the games you lost in January. We're talking about Toronto Toronto's got fifty eight points there in second place in the Atlantic Division. Do you realize the only six points more than buffalo who's on the outside looking in? So you you you lose a couple of games here. You can not only lose home-ice advantage. You drop. Out of the playoffs not Tampa. But teams like Toronto Colorado to the same thing. But that's for me. I mean as a player that stuff to deal with because you know, every night, you have to show up in in give it whatever it takes to win that game because it's that important, but as a fan you love it, you love the fact that outside of Tampa who's got seventy four points, which is insane. Now, everyone else is still in this thing for the most part. You know, what I mean like, you still have a real chance if you put together, you know, three four five game winning streak where all of a sudden, you know, back in the mexic- seen Louis has been terrible. Like for the most part. I mean since Ruby's taken over they've been better. But that's been a disappointing team looked then they forty five points. Yeah. Look at that. Minnesota's the last wildcard in the west with forty nine points. Abington's got forty seven Vancouver. Forty seven Anaheim forty-seven Anaheim has not won a game in their last eleven and their two points out of ploughs by Saint Louis is four points out of a playoff spot, and they fired their coach. That's how crazy is man is not like the old days. I get so aggravated when I hear non hockey fan say, why would I? Watch the regular season. Everybody makes the playoffs. Well, first of all they expanded the thirty one teams almost half the teams don't make the playoffs and you see sometimes good teams. Look a Florida last year that one of the best teams in the NHL at the end of the year and the missed the playoffs in the the one thing I have noticed a lot especially now in. Back when I played there was there was definitely more of a veteran presence on our teams. So you'd see less of less of the mistakes that you see now, but because the league is so geared towards speed and young players. You see a lot of mistakes. So I think a lot of a lot of reason why these games close is because it's so predicated on youth and speed that you see a lot of. I mean mistakes lead the goals. You know what I mean? Like, you never know. So it makes it fun to me. I listen, I could talk all I could watch hockey all day every day. That's how I feel about it. But you can't have kids on the blue line earn goal. You notice that you can't have a nineteen year old at forward because you can you can move around. You can draw them to the fourth line. You can hide them. You know, what you got six defenseman where you hide in your defense. And where you hide your goal goaltender. So you're not seeing kids on the blue line and the goal. No. I mean as far as defense so defensemen you'd like to have that element of veteran leadership guys that know how to make the smart decisions goalie one hundred percent, and then you're centers. I mean, those are only God. Yeah. I mean, look some of these defensive zone. Some of these centers that just have no idea what the hell they're doing. That's that's why if I'm a ranger fan. I want them the trade. Kevin Hayes right is a free agent. You can try to get them back. Are maybe run the risk that he likes wherever he goes. And he stays there. But you know, you can get back for him a guy that scoring goals, and he's got to be healthy. Smith seven gains the upper body injury. He can play wing play center. You drop him into a team like Nashville, right, Colorado. He's been actually he has been. And I said, it's the David Cohen is on all the time. He one of the pleasant surprises me like he's been. He's been really good from this year. Very good. Really good. You see the college guys all of them are playing better. Under quinn. Kreider has played better as well. He was a beast last night. You didn't notice because he didn't really show up for sheep. But I thought he was terrific last night. He was good zuccarello was really good. You don't you don't really like about the Rangers team in. I really like David Cohen coach the BU, really good guy. Is that very rarely do you have coaches, especially coaches that that come from the college level haven't had like this long track. Like, you're gonna say my Barry Trost, seven success. He just wanted. The Cup whatever he says you're gonna buy into. But the fact that he's benching guys the fact that he calls his team out in the media. They always respond. Certainly did respond like he called them out. We got our asses handed to us and what happens last night completely completely different team. And you know, why I think they respond to it? Because I don't think he's telling media anything that. He didn't tell the team five minutes before. Exactly. Right. You know? I mean, that's for me. That's the big thing is that when you have a coach like like David Quinn. All you ask for as a player is just just like, I'm a big boy, I'm going to grow up. Just just tell me where I'm at. You'll have to lie to me don't say one thing to my face than in the media results. That's it. And I got a lot of coaches in this league. Really? That's why when I when I have to vote with Jack Adams, it's so difficult because there are so many good coaches, then when you got a bad coach, you can just see it, and it doesn't work out. But you know, Barry trots Bill Peters doing a terrific job. I think towards doing a good job in Columbus with some of the injuries that they've had. And you see what guys like Babcock do Toronto team that was like nowhere forever? Bring back Hitchcock in Edmonton. What he's done for them. Yeah. They've spotted but still I mean the instantly they looked like a better team. Now, they just have some talents use their way to top-heavy same Colorado. Got so much talent top. But do you have the balance depth? That's what wins you games. That's what when she games. And that's what will sustain success. The thing with Edmonson was as good as Tabah wasn't your one has not been had a bad year. Last year hasn't been great this year on a great defensive team. That wasn't a great pickup. He had a nice you at the Rangers. But the Rangers were, you know, presidents trophy winning team and he's gotten exposed low by like him. He's a really good kid. But I just don't know if he's a goaltenders can take it to the prom. You know, what's going to be interesting in is with the Dallas Stars doing. I mean, you had you had a good place as to it. But you see what comes with the other day that the the worst thing that ever happened to the franchise was spent in the Roth because then at the sign them, captain. I know I mean. On the comments from the owner, just but they're still hanging in there. That's a disappointing team though. Let's be serious. Well, they're disappointing. Because Ben and Sagan have been disappointments, though, their numbers are not bad terrible. But they should be much better than they are. But they're kind of hanging around. But then again, we just outlined. Everybody's hanging around is hanging around for God's sakes, the way this league is those three point games just show. You can you can hang around. But it's tough to make the jump because you chase. After a team. They lose in overtime. Or are you you lose overtime. And you lose that point this team gained the point. It's it's it's crazy. It really is. But it's fun. It's fun follow. Why? While we beg people. You we love hockey bub. I beg people. Like, they listen just folly chill for a minute. He followed for me to watch couple of games wash. How competitive this thing is which is go to one game you'll be unit for life. Get over the preconceived notions of of Bill the regular season. Doesn't mean anything. Everybody makes the playoffs. It's a goon league fighting. I've called twenty games. This year. I think I've I think I've called two fights and the twenty games that I've had now some people don't like that. But by the lack of physicality, you're seeing these kids fly I mean, just to see the skating see Seekonk David play like God. No, he's he's the fastest player that I've ever seen the can do things with speed. But let's Carl Haglund probably faster than mcdavid but mcdavid can do things while he's doing it fast. He can shoot he can pass going one hundred miles an hour. And you've seen firsthand if you're Rangers fan, I mean, I've never played with anyone that I've played with guys that fast. But as far as just crazy, upper echelon speed Michael Grabner was one of the guys ever seen in my entire life. And he gets stuck on a stick moving fast. You see him on breakaways? There's there's a disconnect. He's almost going too fast too fast for himself see mcdavid. I mean, he hits I three strides in its see later. I think that's the problem with Edmonton. Like how the wingers can't catch up with the speed of their centers. So there's a there's a disconnect there they can't find people to play with mcdavid. Well, nugent-hopkins is good. Dry Seidel is good. But I mean loses done nothing was shot. Four goals house. He keep up with those kids. That's the problem though. And that's the kind of guy that giving realistically if you wanna spend some time in the offensive zone, and you wanna create what you need to create in front of that. You've got a guy like what you need. But you're right. If you can't keep up what good is there's a but hit you'll figure it out. I Lama big Ken Hitchcock fan. What? I mean. Listen for him to do what he's done for as long as he's done it. He steps into a situation and things changed the way that they change. I mean, that's a testament to his knowledge of the game. I'm unauthorized your time. I couldn't apologize more. But this is awesome. Thank you, so much pleasure. Patrick DP tro against here on game is conduct. We had a lot of fun.

So I, stopped up just you got drunk in the morning. Setup. All right. What do I do? I. Don't not a morning person I gotta get in the mood. So I thought I did but anyways, video to come. Boston's Great. We've got a few more days here but meanwhile. Game Four, Tampa, the island is Tampa with the commanding three, two, one series lead after the four one win today I got a quick one not the lead by who else brought Nelson with his ninth of the playoffs. But it was very short lived as Blake Coleman and Andre Pilots twelve seconds of pot. Tampa got two more and the third one from point in Espn G. from Pat Maroon. The island is come back here with no no God. No. Are You shitting me? There's no chance that coming back I would say that. They are so outmatched I know that you may think it sounds crazy and at times in the series they've been evenly matched but Tampa, such a better team Tampa is the best team in the League and I know that this season maybe started off a little bit slow for them but they're coming off. So PTSD playing hockey for them after the record breaking year and what we've talked happened last year and If. You look at the regular season, what the islanders were doing before the entire breakout I mean, they were struggling. So when you look at these teams, they're not even close on paper and they got point back and that was huge. But look at the Games they've won they dominated game one shit kicking game to they had nine forwards. They pulled out a win. Yeah. Game three they got beep but they made it close. They came back late and then game four and easy four one win. So you're looking at a team whose. Heads and shoulders above the islanders and I think that once you see them put it all together and when it comes back in the patch pass Kucherov made today to Polat who scores again he's got eight this playoff run I. Think. It's just been it's been dominating. So I think we got two games to catch up on but today was it was it wasn't really close. Yeah. They get one nothing in ten seconds later. So let's go back to game three. So there's some some August bad blood there with the high hit that Nelson took from grew grow given where the game was by the end of it when who was a Kucherov given? Pasha the business on the empty net no free goals there, and that kind of got things going at that point when I talked about the got a feeling. All of a sudden, the islanders make the series two one. And and they're dragging TAPA into their game into the mud make get very aggressive while I thought that that was gonna be advantage for the moving into game four but that wasn't the case and. Would you not agree in the fact that that in that style a game that that that's not Tampa style I don't think it is but I think one of the biggest things they talked about after last year's debacle was making it more their style and making a nets why pat maroons brought in, and that's why you see them go out and make the deals for Dro- and calm and understandably like you can't get pushed around so. I think that the islanders did their best and we saw before game four, we're checking in on twitter before the game they're going at it at the red light right I mean maroons talking to Johnston who's in the lineup because I believe Suzuki was out and Martins in the mix and what I really like from Tampa's yeah. They got guys like cat and they got Maroon and some bigger guys Luke Schenn's willing to fight of course but. Today what Stucco, it was Matt Martin takes a late shot I. think it was the end of first period and you could tell I was actually surprised they didn't call penalty. Playoff game no need to. But who stepped in their shattenkirk and he kinda got rag doll, Martin's an animal but still just to get in there and show that the entire team won't-back-down and I think that's what makes up. So special is. He's such a competitor and when he was chasing down per show in game three. I bet you like Cooper's thinking. Please take suspension police because he's nuts you know what I mean Seattle. Columbus I'm going to eat and you see the wires cross. Now's a pretty big slash and I really respected shota stick right back up to them that kid doesn't give a shit he's willing to fight but the whole Tampa team it's changed the way they play their physical they're not. They're not shying away and they're not afraid saying the old Tampa team might have shied away there but they go get shun they signed him of course, Maroon Coleman. Now, let's go back to game four first goal his fault. Yes sheets a little bit on Nelson ends up getting walked Nelson puts in that beauty who's Oh my God this guy actually saw a clip that. Kevin Conley actually drafted him. He was sent up to the podium. Did you see that that was good stuff? Yeah. He made the call. He got to go up there and make the call and I mean that kid is turned into quite the player for them. I think you said what eleven goals now playoff it was his ninth it was not nice but. I believe that Rafe since ninety three, the most in a playoff years been very far with ten I thought I thought that was. So Nelson can break that if he bought a couple more and yeah, that was a great shot. But Coleman, what you mentioned was makes a huge mistake. What does he do next shift? Comes back and makes up for and I will say that I've talked over the years of this podcast. One of the best pass I've ever seen with my own eyes Eric Carlson saucer pass to Mike Hoffman in in the in the garden over the entire Bruins team landed on his stick when they were with auto money went down and buried Yanni. Gord had a very similar pass on that Coleman goal. It was just an amazing play. He's got his back against the wall behind his goal. He's beneath the Golani flicks it up over everyone leads coleman perfectly into it, and he goes down got a little lucky getting under leave underneath the puck underneath Varlamov stick. The stick went down. He's able to talk was a nice goal but. To be able to make a mistake and now the the person watching a game they might not even notice that that goal was Kinda Coleman's fault I forget who the Centerman was. That was up chasing. Up High but Barzel district over a parcel district over to. Whom I thinking Nelson and home and had cheated. Coleman, thought there was going to be eternal cheat offensively. That's his guy who scored that goal and he comes right back and that's the thing you cannot dwell on mistakes especially in the playoffs to see a guy especially sorry I. The G in there I'm really working on that. But he comes back anything does what he does that that's why this team is. Take a hike. Islanders don very resilient than twelve seconds later. Pot and another one take the to one lead and it was pretty much. Done after that, going back to game three islanders fans not happy about that tying goal. I mean, Gee, you said it looked like he got the high stick on it but given that he called it a goal on the ice. They didn't overturn it. I thought that I did look maybe on the higher side, but just clearly not enough are. Absolutely not, but do I know I'm stroking off every episode of Celeski men like this guy I think he's solidifying the comments might at least on the Eastern Conference but. On the other end I'm curious who I'm drawn goes with next game but he goes with Greece Varlamov off i. mean he went with Greece unexpectedly in Christ. Grace I always say Greece because I'm a big Danny Zuko Fan. It's Christ but I'm curious to see who goes especially Greis the race, the first two goals in game four that Varlamov lead up he almost had it the breakaway on Coleman it goes underneath this thick and then I forget who a lot he. He almost got that the lot law where he ended up getting over on that pass and I, it just hit his block or. Side and went in. So play great I listen I. Guess after they dragged him into that mudfight and it seemed like the Martin Gujral scrap had really motivated that team and just how ugly it got I thought that islanders were going to stand a chance. But what response by getting point back in the lineup after he missed a game as well as caloric and they were right back to their high-flying salves and the point goal is much. Good in a dominant as bars Albany made kind of a tough play defensively on the point now he was chasing him. He was back checking them doing his best as he could to kind of get back into the play they showed the replay on NBC sports, but he ends up getting on the backside of him and he's kind of behind the net and point does a great job stopping in front and ends up getting the goal. So when you look at bars and what he can do offensively, it's just one mistaken at that time it's two one. Point goal is kind of a backbreaker it's three one the game looks completely different. Now on the third period, it's just all stay in between your man in the net. You could tell that one time he's trying to get there and end up on the wrong side and it's a backbreaker for that team. So I just think that the entire that line point Polat and Kucherov is something else and the islanders even with Nelson really can't answer. I Know Bailey's been good but they don't have the skill level that that lines plays with they're all on fire. Couldn't agree more they all had two points in game four as good to just too much firepower for them. So and of course, if temple, when's the next one the aisles will be looking filed the golf courses in the going to be want to be good when they're out there you what y'all for sure Ra, there's no better way to do that. Then wearing Peter Millar I'll tell you guys we had a sandbag there Chris Wagner Brandon Yep. It was sponsored by Peter Millar. Thank you so much. You're going to see some of the gear we had. On. But just the most comfortable clothes it's perfect a golfer you looked exactly like a golfer, which is I. Mean to make. Peter. Mark and make you look like a golf or they can make anyone look like a guard Damn Golfer but I'd say that the that's my favorite because it's able to you could throw it in the bag if it's cool out I, mean if it's a little too warm, you're wear to the course early morning fall round late afternoon rain Chechen just the pants they have the shorts everything about classy but also like athletic performance. You need it for Boston because like in the morning, it could be a monsoon out and then twenty minutes later fucking sunshine and then right back to the monsoon twenty minutes later, this place as far as whether it's concern as off the radar and you can you can go without any logos you could pick any colors you want. So you gotTA check out that it's Peter Millar dot com slash. Go to and use Code Barstool at checkout for a complimentary performance hat. So they're just chucking and free APPs. You Know How legit? Peter Morris who want to say thanks to them and make sure you check that out and I got a couple of sandbags this week already, and maybe even a third we're still waiting on Humphry freaking out over here Boyce. Okay. You want us to mention. It. Yeah. Yeah. So right now it's Sunday night we're recording and we were supposed to go against Kevin Hayes and Keith, Yandell in our third sandbags since we've been in Boston and they have completely ghosted us. So we haven't heard back whether we need to cancel the film crew. We may be doing a head to head me against wit because I feel I've been carrying the team the sandbags. He feels like he's been carrying the teams. Well, I guess we're GONNA decide that head on had if in fact, Keith Yandell and Kevin Hayes do not show their face and we're going to send him the bill for the maybe for the film crew crazy like it's a fully prank feel like there's something going on here. Well, it's not really a prank like we just won't be there. Yeah. But what if what if we show up tomorrow and in Foley's on the first screen just waiting for you I would I would laugh because Foley's banana fucking slice won't stand and the also the only chance that keep the handle and Kevin Hayes against beating us would be in fact that they're playing mental warfare before the round and and maybe maybe a slim slim snowball's chance in. Hell. lefties to do. So I think they're just more nervous. I really will be shocked if if Keith actually just canceled on us the we did and it's not a joke. I'll be really surprised as a friend of his think I think we're going to have to give them a maybe a year suffer from the pod. King of the Song he could just be sunken everybody. That's true. That's true. Are A. Song us we don't show up and he can bring to play with Kevin. So we have to get over to Dallas are before you before you hop into this I, want to say this the Dallas fans I made a mistake when I've been watching some games, I hadn't seen Jamie Ben put up any points clearly hadn't been running are watching the scoreboards. Okay. So I was wrong in saying that now I'm leading the fucking train for the Jamie Ben concentrate because ever since I did say that and wit corrected me and I admitted to getting bent over no spit no loop sandpaper finish at least an style to on one no back checkers. Listen. He he ended up getting a primary assist the episode I said it and then back to back games he scored including that one in game three and wet. We talked about it. As soon as it happened, he gives that little flick of the fucking wrist opens up Leonard when Leonard already had the angle, he already had that side of the net cover but instincts brought his pads open and what is Jamie Ben do goes five whole to give their fucking teen the to one. And stone ends up tying up that game was. The night, we did the electric chair. So we experienced maybe one of the worst hockey games I've ever seen through two periods and I had the over under which was set at five. I actually got to push out of it because the third period then not was not so. I Dunno everyone's been online or instagram and seen Ra with the wart hog has let's just go over quickly. have. We been calling him award hog. Have we been calling on the farm animal? Love Went from farm animal to we've then got who wasn't work. 'cause I couldn't remember like the Harry animal on farm. So he's scores the OT winner on unreal shot barn in. Ra said Warthog Macon Warthog Man Fifteen time to play the clip right now. Play it right now oriented. The one on. Folks down he goes. Ben Went. On Biz. Comes down and he goes barring. Thought. Holy. Letters hurt US hurt off. The warhol. Okay. Now mind you the entire time he's looking at Biz he's like Chris like hoping Biz will look. And, laugh at his warthog thing you're getting nothing get nothing from either one of us. There just weren't going to give up I was headed for myself. So I didn't give a fuck why are you looking over to us every time you having fun man was the electric chair just thanks to body armor by the way for the electric. Thank you. To Roman by the way for supporting the chair that was a Roman chair. Okay. Well, we've been doing both it's been a body armor house Roman swipes on your cock to make us last longer three weeks of what I felt. There's been three months but the stone goal now, there was another we go back to the Johnson was a high tip folks. Could Open was outside the crease and I don't think that prevented Gubin stone in weight prevented him for making that save and I thought that should have been a good good goal. Now, that's not my vegas bias I thought it was fair square than obviously we went to overtime a nice play from Pavelski on the far wall to get that to. Radulovich. I don't know. Is it another case where you think that maybe Leonard should've had that I think the slight delay makes him drop the blocker side and then rattle off goes posted in credit for the shot itself but that was it was. It was far enough out or it's surprising because you settle in and you're ready to watch what could be a long overtime in thirty seconds in it's over. So there was a turnover in the offensive zone and next thing you know rationales flying down the wing on his own I I don't necessarily think you're going to call that a bad goal but I certainly think the Angolan or had you didn't think he'd get beat there. It was just above his pad and underneath this blocker just. Maybe, you're not ready to play off the off the opening drop ot in Vegas because a lot of times in overtime you think it's going to be awhile and you have to understand shift. This thing can be over, but some teams that just takes him a couple shifts to get into it. Wall going back to the end of regulation when it was tied to is the last play. Leonard made a weird move to to save the puck on that wrap around, and then you saw him with a trainer afterward, and then you're wondering you know is he is he to hurt to go back in and he comes out odyssey ends up playing game four. So it was nothing serious but you gotta wonder, did that affect them at all going into overtime because I believe that was the first shot he faced. So moving onto game four here and you know once again. I period Vegas complete control. The only thing I'm not seeing from Vegas right now is secondary scoring opportunities. They're making pretty passing plays, but they're just not getting to the net and getting Neth nut a NEF enough Jesus Christ unstated edited out enough net front presence on Gubin who was pretty electric he. He was the story of the weekend I mean we probably should have led with him to be honest but we want with the most recent game. vagus Donald. The whole game and you felt that was one of these games. If he keeps playing like this, they're gonNA rope a dope them and they did they took a three one lead in the series you stop thirty two or three, thirty, three shots his numbers in the conference finals find them right. Because he led the he led the John Save percentage with a nine thirty. He's got a nine fifty two save percentage in the western. conference. Finals he stopped one hundred, nineteen out of one, hundred, twenty, five shots one, six, four goals against nine fifty in in the conference fine I mean just so you think it's dumb call in Dallas Gears, what you're saying well dominates. Goes a young kid who's got. A. Hyper Future. Who Dobbins more of a journeyman I mean he had he was great number two in Boston. You've got the starting in Carolina didn't Pan out there for whatever reason he did have the highest save percentage all year but I love I mean I know, Dallas, fans take have a biased or them. I love Dhabi everybody in the league loves w the media every who plays them it's just been an incredible story but one other note for you I go to. Joe Pavelski I. Like these guys like I was saying. It. was veteran that August. Exactly. You had patch ready stone takes the pop off the foot. They had a freeze it for you could barely skate Romans aren't they had gotten it up. Jeff. Van Pavilion just these Warriors Corey. Perry just killing each other going all out man it was I think one of the better games I've watched all something that got brought up and I believe it was Kevin Be Exxon hockey night in Canada. So there was a play that ended up going behind the net Perry's going one way and Alex talk which I thought. It was accidental. It looked accident. Dallas fans were not happy about it. So the spotter ends up Conan down the tunnel and Kevin X. mentioned when he was in playoffs one year that he got hit awkwardly but it was his shoulder. But because of the we got up and he favored his shoulder, the spotter came down because they wanted to check them out and. I was fucking losing my mind. I had a fine I'm fine. I'm fine I'm fine. It was my shoulder but no, it's the spotters call and I believe the same situation happened to Corey Perry. So he gets called off the bench he wasn't happy about it. You mentioned Pavlovsky on. On, the one goal he scored. Stone has he moves it over to Schmidt. Tough to tough to really blame anyone it seem like Schmidt. was able to cradle at office skate, get it to stick and then. I don't is it being too critical where he he made a soft play ends up turning it over to Pavlovski, and then tries to make up for the mistake by getting a stick on it and bloop right over Leonard in the back of their net tie game. One one, a horrible balance because you think that when you see the Puck, go in that slow you wanNA blame a goalie. Sitting there and it ends up I had so many tweets about how good Golf because it literally looked like a sixty degree weather. It just put right over the goal buddy he he's such a Gamer and On at the day before when job and was setting up golf balls for the boys. Stay away from me to Obama plus six. I just think that. To be it's the second half of the second period and you got the lead in Vegas and Dallas had six shots through. It was twenty two to six. So it's like so frustrating because you can't beat this goalie, you plan phenomenal. You actually have a lead and they're doing nothing offensively and kind of a turnover and you got the puck in your own zone. Next thing you know flu COPA VOWS HE GETS IN ITS TIE game. So then you're thinking, are we we're having trouble beaten is going had lead we felt a little safe now it's like we could be completely fucked and that's what that's what turned out to be two one I mean I I was shocked I went into the third period thing and there'd be goals and I didn't think it would end. That way. But when you're playing this good and you cannot beat them and the one thing you said very true is they're getting great chances they're getting great a opportunities, but it's Kinda wanted done. They're not really like it's not a shot and then a rebound and then a complete strumming front it's like a great h he's saving and all of a sudden it's out of his own. So they're gonNA need to really start China crash the crease and create some sort of sustain often zone pressure and I know they've had plenty of shots and plenty of possession with the puck but there's something to be said about just hammering away and like slashing at. The crease and getting a couple of goals outweigh. So I wonder if you go to flurry. That Leonard's been the reason that this series is three one. It's more the goalie on the other side. But why at this point? Why not sort of go back to your comment about getting in front, get into the blue paint and creating that traffic in order to try to beat Khudobin, you see it from Pavlovsky on the game winner, they get that power play, they set it up, they get the point shot and Polski is right there. Leonard cannot track it and who fucking who shoves it right up my who end vehicle nights Mr Ben Mr Fucking Jamie Ben Mr Conn Smythe himself I know you're Gubin locked in for that team This. If this guy keeps doing what he's doing and you and you mentioned that veterans slugfest, I feel like these guys know that. You don't get many opportunities. Yeah and they can sniff it, and despite how well Vegas is played. I certainly get the sense that is it fuck in Dallas is you're in? Did you see the clip of? The, after they, they give the post-game metals. Every team has a little whatever, and then he put it was like a big chain. He's like boys. We are not going home in the placement actually. A fucking fantastic clip but. They've been this bubble for two months who like the last thing you WanNa do you already fucking? So Pot committed man you don't WanNa go home now a couple other nodes Pavlovsky fifty seven career playoff golden number three for us born playoff goalscorers he'll tie mike. Madonna. What is next one Mellon leads all time with sixty I mean those hall of fame also, he's GonNa end his career more than likely the leading goal scorer in the history of playoff goal for American players. That is like the future US hockey hall of fame I don't think job will be in the hockey hall. Of Fame but the bias against Americans, we'll talk for sure in the United States one and I kind of agree with you Biz that it's scary in a sense that they have some islanders in where they can just Kinda wear you down and it can be slow games and they can kind of just end up getting a goaltending performance and just need one or two goals as you've seen, but they got something going. So I think to for Vegas to beat them three times in a row I do not see it happening. So another thing before game for all of a sudden these. Robin Leonard. Contract talks come up in. I mean, fuck. This team is dealt with enough goaltending issues already, and then there was a rumor that came out. It was a five times five deal. A handshake agreement and then Mike more gas on the fire as far as the rumors of flurries probably not going to make it beyond offseason. Yeah. Wish reported Leonard. Vegas have Hinchey he called it a handshake agreement on a five times five deal the goalie said it's not true which you know obviously the last in the like you said as as further goaltending distractions but. Wish you got a job to do you get a scoop. You've got to report it now that mean flower will be cracking and just lead another team. That's what I was thinking. It'd be wild if if he goes to another expansion team and goes on another tier, but there's a lot to. For that to happen I will say man, I bet you the League would want that. All absolutely. So such a market rony Francis over there just grabbing himself thinking about flour goal. You kidding me and how we got to give credit to Leno for that save on radloff. He made with fucking neck like he obstinate our net guide for some reason and he clearly hats off office fucking neck I mean you could see. The huge red well I thought he was going to have to come out wolf flurry after he took the puck off the neck, but he's not the problem for that team right now because this is per EJ radic in the last seven games excluding at the net is the Golden Knights have scored just eight goals not surprising that have gone to and five in those, and they've probably OCHIAI shot both opponents to one. Overshooting that just it's feast or famine for the right now and right now, the another little nugget here stars are now eight know when leading after two periods in the Stanley Cup playoffs this year. So look out if they got the lead, they know how to put you in that Defensive Nogi real quick to you guys mentioned everyone loves Dhabi dropped Dhabi. Shirt I think two days ago. One of the highest selling shirts in our store. So tons of Dallas share. Really. Yeah. Tons Islanders shirts were just pumping out church right now. So check out there I think we've stroke off the stars quite a bit. This pot I know that it was getting a little feisty between you and some fans. Yeah Online Ra but. We made it up to them. Oh, I meant to bring this up earlier. This is just an insane to me. Hesketh or Klingberg has been on the ice for fifty three of Dallas is fifty seven goal leading leading into game four of the playoffs. So you see that I, don't think that Klingberg's thought of defensively the way Eskin is but oh, my God is this guy good at getting pucks in and you saw the winner from Jamie Ben just Saturday night be a perfect perfect shot from the point that created rebounds. So show those two guys carrying the load for the Dow. Stars. Just going back to the electric chair one what time some To the student loan story about how I took. The amount of people doubting me I actually didn't do that as if like they know my fucking personal finances twenty seven years. So. Amazed to hear you took out a loan. Common back then. Yeah you buy a lot of people took more than you're considering buying a car. Going on a cruise no-no. I've I've heard stories of people taking out student loans to put a down payment on a house once again, cheap money he went on a cruise. So yeah. Yeah. Our our rays version was very are late are alike, but I'm saying doubting the fire that somebody took out a loan other than for student loans is not that crazy especially journal? No not that it was just what did with it I think the funniest thing is that we were dog carnival insurer ship. Money went on. Carnival all you can eat all. You can drink crews and just didn't leave the ship or the Casino on the there is there is a wrench in the story though right that the fact that you got wasn't supposed to be.

We bring up kids and a lot of times in the early months they wear like the same thing every day now I got a question because it can come news that you wear like a very similar or the same type shirt every time you're on, you got hats that people are asking what now the good thing is you won't tell anyone where you get the uniform. A- you know what I will if somebody buys a cameo, my whole thing is I'm sick these fucking content vampires these lazy slugs that just fucking all they want is to suck the content out of Austin I. I'll say us because you know we're all respectively in the game in the game So yeah. I said you know what? Fine you want. You want some fucking information by a cameo And that's that's really how I'm operating right now but for Nash. And Yeah. This has become sort of like a a fucking national story what shirt I'm wearing and what had I'm wearing like? What I say to these is is. You want as little fatigue as possible. Especially when you have a kid when you have a kid, you get I've been pissed on probably I dunno twenty times and when it hits you, you don't know it's common. You don't know what angle it's coming at. The moment that that happens you think to yourself. Okay. I, gotta I gotta I gotTa get Nash Clean and then I got clean myself. I don't have time to go downstairs and worry about what I'm GonNa do what I'm going to put on to match the shorts that I'm wearing. So I have twenty six of the same t shirts that are stacked and ready to go and one's dirty I peel it off sucking harp sauce and I grabbed the. Exact, same t shirt and I put it on and I'm back in the game then you feel good about yourself because you're not fucking worrying about what you have on because you take pride in your appearance Sean Absolutely. Yeah. As as we all should right I like your winter coat Biz that winter coat, which by the way I tried to actually research it and find out who made it because I'd like to buy one for the upcoming, winter season. But that was your uniform that was your winter uniform. go back to the kid what's it like having something that you care more about than yourself in the world like it's like Yeah I mean I like man I cry so much I watch this thirty for thirty you guys might know this team are a you probably know it at this was a thirty for thirty on a a World Little League World Series Baseball team from New York somewhere New York state, and they beat the they beat the Koreans I believe in two, thousand six or thirteen or fourteen I dunno anyways I'm holding Nash and I'm watching the story about all these twelve and thirteen year olds that one a little league world world series and I was I was broken I was literally sobbing with tears and I haven't cried in fifteen years does that May. Be taking it a little less hard on the bike lane people like, are you more empathetic towards that part of Your Life Now Fuck? No. Safety Safety first now, even more you know I don't want people sucking breaking laws and breaking rules and and putting the. Children. Endanger. Die. That's you're going to be worse as a dad. Now you're even your protect everyone he's got his own kid to worry about don't fuck with him and his own son. So why were that's why we're moving like an and literally I. Think we possibly are moving to Montana. Oh, man. I heard. Yellowstone. Fin Oh. Hey, you know right and that's the complete opposite of the Big Apple Right now, which not no offense I have no desire to be near. It is the biggest ship of God on the fucking planet. It is a it is man you know this city like ten years ago was. I could say great city I. Mean there were moments where you walk in New York can go. This is the best city in the world. This city is a fucking hell hole. It is a hell hole shithole run by the biggest fucking big bird would have. One phone this guy ran for president by the way let's not forget that this guy actually ran to be the Democratic nominee just a short four months ago he nuts. He needed some Roman Schweitzer's campaign to extend it a little bit. Got, them right actually. That's good. Into a Roman swipes swipe up. That was perfect. All right. So can we talk like because? I haven't seen it yet I'm guessing you have but are we talking about what your role was? Are we going to let everyone? We can. We can talk we can talk so I drove. I drove to Danbury Connecticut tough town. By the way Ed pen zander eight they used to have a team like the Ma this Minor Leagues League around here the Danbury. thrashers trash or is it might have been. Yup and The owner when we played when the lockout when we played for the motor city mechanics, Derian hatcher Chris, Chellios Kris draper that was back. That kid was Turpin Chellios. On Youtube, about him chirping is his tanned. Really. On one of the funniest youtube clips as far as hockey's concern because the guy was mic`ed up this is when like they had VHS tapes and this guy just destroys jelly even shelly is giving at this minor league is saying, no, he saw he saw. So. A tanning bed, his basement. God. So back to your story I'm sorry. No that's great. I need to see that send me that clip. But the owner of Danbury. He was really trying to get us to go and plant. Berry and he was like Whoa cash advance like I'll send you a Western union right now for a lot of money like we're talking like in the twenty five, Fifty K. range as a signing bonus to get us to go there and it ends up, he went to jail. He was like heavily big mob guy ran all the garbage in. Danbury and So. Yeah, anyways Dan Burris at tough suck in town. Not Joke there. I think Mike Scroll might have played there actually the meal. Yeah. So I drove there to Dan rea to see it. I'm acts. Full movie theater like. The whole thing about social distancing in theaters I don't know who said that that exists because it doesn't also If you have fluid, you can just fuck and take your mask off and let it rip. So that's a little bit of an Oxymoron Ra sneaking in like googlers and milk dud to. A CVS I looked like they have a patted me down I. Like two? Kids on top of their shoulders like with a trenchcoat on it said, they'll be all fucking Gandhi and Glenn. How Ya Fuck does yeah. So. These these are the guys from Russia's sneaking back in the cash. When it was Gruber's OB stoppers. So the movie is Man. I. Think. It's it's. It's a movie they you'll walk out of after seeing the first time and go. What the fuck just happened like your mind just gets smoked I know people there's a guy in Canada right out it's trying to break the. Guinness World Record for Seen One movie that most times he's GonNa. See It one, hundred, twenty, six times. It's one of the best movies. I've ever seen I obviously am in it. I didn't get cut out of it. I have speaking roles in. Rats. Sean. That's sick. which is the other thing that's interesting about that. As I think there's only twelve people with dialogue. In the whole entire movie rather than the kind of cool. Wow, that's nice. It's movies just fucking awesome. It's. It's awesome. It's really really good. Yeah you guys. Don't think too hard. Just law deal it. You think you're able to understand it more given the fact that you knew what was going on because from what I've heard it's just a mind fuck and if you watch at one time, you're not going to be able to absorb like maybe worse some twists and turns went and Dude I still don't understand inception. Still Understand inception either we had no idea what was what the movie was about. We literally no idea and I'm talking. Not just me. Rob? Pattinson. John David Washington who's the lead as well as Rob John. David had a better idea Aaron Taylor. Johnson. No idea we had no idea like and I think Nolan did that on purpose because? when you think about. When I say my lines in the in the movie like. I'm asking questions and the questions that I'm asking I. Don't know the answers to because I don't know what's happening I. You'll curry often takes over right which you know that's the truest form of acting if you don't have to fake that if if that's real than technically you're not acting, I'm actually just trying to acquire like. What's going on here? Why pretend not movie I have no idea what's going on here but you know he doesn't let anyone read the script i. Read. The script wants and. You're locked in a room and and Yeah and the and the crazy thing was I shot for five weeks and. The first three days that I worked the only days that I had dialogue. So. I had no idea really what was going on like at least three weeks and I had seen the full set. I'd seen some other things that could kind of peace story together the first day was the day that I had the majority of my my dialogue. So yeah, there's a wild wild ride. I think it's One of the greatest action movies ever made. Now, because you had to speak impact, you get residuals or not. Yeah. Financial referring to financial by the way Biz. Yes so so Yeah. What would? No but think about it. If you had you had being a speaking role in in rocky or Jurassic Park like you're getting checks, and if a movie makes a couple of billion dollars over the over its lifetime like. I don't know I forecast probably that will end up being like. Quarter of a million dollars maybe maybe more I have no idea but it it'll be a significant amount I over time. That's so true. I wonder what fat Newman from Seinfeld and Jurassic Park when he gets eat red Lizard get he probably makes bank from those two. Free Time that movies on TV on TBS every time somebody yeah. Like you get paid on that that's that's how it works. So yeah. I'll go no. I. Was just GonNa ask like your into so many other things but I I've kind of learned about you is throat these playoffs you still love hockey I mean these video breakdowns you're doing. For the same thing it's it's it's awesome to watch. It's you go into the place. You go way back how the play really began with which I think a lot of hockey fans don't understand like the beginnings of of certain goals can go back forty five seconds. So you've you've loved to do that right you wouldn't be sitting around wasting your time. He didn't enjoy. No, it's fun. It's fun I actually you know I'm marveling at how good some of these players are. Now like their filth some of the fucking plays I mean. True Sharaf Kucherov everybody gives me shit because I don't know the fucking names like I. Say Some of the guys. What's his name Kucherov? That's enough. No, he said join join the club. It's like people get so offended dude. Sorry. Yeah like I didn't fuck in spend an hour rehearsing everyone's gone on talion. Bissonnette pay. It works for me. They never said Britney right in Russia. Right. TAME. That couture off pass in game one. That when he's at center ice and he makes that little, he kinda rolls his stick over and and I mean there's been so many of them. But yeah, like you said what? You know. Goal Start. They develop they developed like. Last night with the ban on the on the second goal, the Dilinger Defenseman doesn't get the red wine doesn't take a hit. You turn around and next thing you know the the pucks in your net but the the interesting thing is I think like. People really like it. I think that they I need to get a fucking laser pointer, but I've been researching like. Don't really work on the on the TV's and the ones that do. Are Illegal by apparently. So and I'm trying to still figure out how to work the dark web and I fuck in have no idea I've been chipping away at it. I can't figure it out. So if anyone can get me like a like a high grade laser pointer like they're using him Portland thirst, they're shooting people in the is the eight just start letting US use their clips and we can continue to grow the game and have fun get different voices. One of those what about a teleprompter? I listen I've been looking into it but that's the thing. You said it. I was going to go on twitch. You can't and I went into Barstool Media Barstool Smitty gave me the whole rundown and then he's like Oh. Yeah. But you can't do it because you're not allowed to use the feet what is wrong with this leak and why why do they? WHY DO THEY ACT TO SWEAT Like You're already making money it's not like you're gonNA take money away from them. Just going to help them make money yet. They look at it like we paid this much I know it's crazy to me that you can't be out there. All it would do is make it more popular and they still own the big dog right so it's like why worry about the crumbs right it's free market in the NBA I follow the NBA. Gifts, on twitter. It's like you know you do the same for the NHL you should just get a nine iron like versteegthe doesn't just point. Nine nine at the TV. It's. A good idea is doing that what we're seek. He's been using a golf club is a point they I. don't know if it's an actual nine, but that's what he uses. Yeah or maybe I'll walk out on the breast milk out of a bottle at it. Now are you know what? I'M GONNA? Do I'M GONNA walk out there's an asshole guy that parks his car and I don't like them I'm GonNa. Snap is fucking antenna I'm GONNA do when we're done I'm GONNA go outside I'm GonNa snap. To come in I'M GONNA, use it tonight. Aves you've been you've been tagging. NBC. So you you would like to offer them. Show my God. Do you think they would even consider giving you a job. You're never in a million years. Sam Flood Sam, Flood Okay Sam Flood First of all, he has a duty to the shareholders of NBC to put the best product he can put together that means the highest fucking rates. There's no black it's not why there's no gray area you have the highest ratings you've done a good job. Sam Flood will never hire me in a million years because I've actually said Sam flood name out loud knows who the Fuck Sam flood is unless you know men you follow. So he never hire me because of that what I do it. Absolutely. Absolutely I would do it as long as the schedule wasn't too crazy and and yeah, I would do it but it will never happen in a million years The the suits that they wear on that fucking show is just they have a blue blue background, right? Okay. NHL ON NBC it's blue. I. Don't know if they tell their guys to wear blue suits, but it would be like standing in front of a blue screen with a blue fuck and on like in a blue man suit, it doesn't make sense. Right? You like contrast you WanNa have two different colors the. The whole thing's a train wreck. While AB. They'll hire you is like a fashion person behind the scene so they can't get in trouble but I would. I would. I would like at the end of the show wardrobes provided by Sean instagram right. Hey. When you watch the intermissions improve hey, they'll be pissed proof Sean. You'll have that wax coating on. Hey have you have you thought about that? You say you don't like when your kid pisses on your uniform. Why don't you get those shirts? I, think they sell them at Eddie Bauer where they're like wrinkle and rainproof maybe. Edi. Bauer addition I pour my grape juice all over my shirt right now and it would shrink lost like one of those commercials where you see like. The rubber thing. Yeah. Yeah I'm good at all. Are you GonNa? Say wet we we get the streams gone. It's just the intermission report on hockey night in Canada you learn so much and it's brought to you just in a more exciting way and then really NBC is just kind of like I don't know it's the intermission reports don't do much for me at least. they don't do much for anyone. I mean I it's like I like pack Patrick Sharp. You know it's funny. So me and Patrick Sharper Buddies, right? We DM, each other Were Buddies. Yeah. We're. Bodies at I said Sharpie. You. Got Your fucking teeth done buddy. Nice. Nice work like you look great I. Love I'm on the obviously we're both on the program. He, said, he didn't get his teeth done and I think like I don't want to call him a liar because I don't think he's a liar what that does reports. But I think he got veneers and he's not admitting it and I don't know why he just wouldn't. I'm going get a nose job and just deny it. Would be. Tough. But the big. So you. Okay. So you think he's lying about the natural teeth, I. We're trying to get our movie teeth. He won't. He won't agree to get in the dental chair. Really if you if you guys pay for it, I'll fuck and delayed fucking rights I. I'm sure there's dentists that we could just throw out at SOS that would love to do that for free. It's so painful you'll be so you'll be so. Far You had them wet you got the. I got my two front knocked out. So when I was done, playing I got got the veneers and IT S. Awful couple. Oh my God it's like it's like getting yet your your brain drill I mean it's the worst. I think sharp got veneers and he just won't come clean with me. I. Don't know what the problem is. A We got four teams left right now you for Dallas bag. They give you a few years ago. You took a little of. Their what. I, you know I. I like. WHO's the coach? God I reports trae around yeah? Rick. bowness like just a great what a great name and I don't know I feel like I would I would have liked ric bonus plan with them if we're teammates or fuses assistant I like them. I like anyone on their team. Not. Really. Not, nobody, really tugs on my heartstrings. I'm fucking all in on Tampa Bay you love. You Love, I love circuit that. Sergei DM's were am buddies. I knew when you started calling them surrogate that you you start to have them in other instagram friend we took our relationship to the next level, and now I refer to him as Sergei. I was GONNA. Ask You who are your favorite villains now in the NHL who are some guys that stand out to you? That you're oh I mean you probably would have paid plan against them but now you respect 'cause you're like that I was out there. I like Suck Kinda like why? Like Matt, Martin's Game He's somehow resurrected his career like. You know twelve th seed under the A. Under Lemme interrupt you there because just the other night when he scored I said I said Biz like I feel like I thought he was going to be out of the league when things went down like they did in Toronto and now he's back and I said on the of I mean it as an insult but are you agree with me? It was kind of like where is he gonNA play in the League and now he's got five goals in the playoffs dirty was bad in the league. fucking. Eight years ago I mean like really bad and now. Berry trots I mean I don't know if something happens with those guys fucking S-. Zeke isn't and clutter box they're like the new grind line I mean. So I like watching those three play however became a fucking islander San like Frankie Borelli and his dad and these fucking live streams and I mean cou could be that dramatic team. How could that possibly how could you be that dramatic about a team? Okay. So it's a team that might. Okay. So you. All right. So this is the thing where I actually said. I. I think he's so insane that it's legit. But many people many people like he's he's faking. That's yeah. You think you're speaking. He's trying to he's trying to capture his moment and they're going overboard and it looks fucking ridiculous. Really really I mean it's gotten to the point where it's basically wwe now because his dad broke a chair over his back lost one. So they are capturing some pretty some pretty. Really I didn't see that. I think it's pretty genuine though because we've away before Boscell, he told the stories he would be at the game before like what signs yellen during warmups like I think he's just always been this fucking passionate and yeah I think what the cameras on what Pasta? Content, you might put up a bit I. Don't know I've enjoyed it. It's Kinda maybe the father son aspect these guys have been suffering for so long and when they finally up when they finally moved on the card's profits finally thought it was actually endearing watch them. Hug I thought that was pretty genuine though yeah I the thing that bothers me about Frankie as he doesn't have a lot of Like got wall. He doesn't have a lot of facial hair, but he's also he he's got a wall up like he's he he doesn't He's very sensitive. You know he can never be in on the joke on himself and I think it's a little like you guys are great at it. Right? That's why I think people. Enjoy us is we can have a laugh at ourselves and I don't think frank is very good at having laugh at himself. Yeah if I actually wrote him a message suck on that. If they get swept by the islanders, he would he would write back and send a video like I hope you fucking play golf and get struck by lightning with. A guy and he wouldn't be kidding, which is a good. He's very is very, very sensitive at times, right? Like yeah. Do we do any of US care about a team much like? Like I just want to see great game. I. Sniffed The coyotes jocks a little bit. I want to go back to that question about other villains like I. Thought Pep as kid he he seems to be playing that role. Good lemieux. Yeah. Wow I mean he asked me over consistent amount of time but I mean like, I it seems like there's something there like he plays like a like a piece of shit. Yeah, I mean I think the new sort of villain is Well. Ra that can hit that Ritchie hit i. mean that was just talk about a stupid fucking hit like That was the dumbest fucking hit. I've ever seen at the worst time and he probably. Cost them serious if you really boil it down XS and os two, two major bonehead plays in that Boston series. So don't like back kid and he's fat he's fucking side like he looks like he looks like he fucked in eight years. It's like half the dustin bustling like he's fat and bloated you can't look like that in the Nhl you gotta be fucking leaned need fighting machine. You got to be quick on your feet. Yeah. My Boy Chuckie mcevoy though he can look a little chunky and he's not he's machine. So that's why I don't know if Ritchie's like Daddy. That yeah. I feel like mcelroy gives him babysat thing a little bit Richie. I don't know I, don't like him. Fat States. You Got Stung by beat. I deserve the suspension for that hit with your take on that That's the one like where I don't know you know like, are you allowed to finish your hit and if a guy shorter than you and and your shoulder hits his head? Say sought right like I think those hits. Get Your fucking hat up and get ready for a hit. You know like I I think. From behind not cool. If you can see the guys numbers pull up. What about? Ended up get as a bad hit just when you're okay with him getting a game there. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah, and I I i. wish she didn't because I I need him in the lineup. So who who are some other guys that have impressive you mentioned Kucherov? Who are some other? I, think me two hundred foot game. The whole package I think stones may be one of the best right now. No who's the kid on suck in Las Vegas that is literally Scott Niemeyer reincarnate all she had already fetal. He's holy. Shit. Dude he Scott Heath Scott need buyer like everything he does. Mimic Scott Native Meyer I can't believe it, and then I was like Oh shit he's got the same number I. gave up on them. They said, we already had a Scott. Like come on, we gotta snap at around a little bit here back. Guys that kids got game. Wow big time player. Britain point I think the best player in the League. Actually. Just come over the wire actually Cologne did get a game suspension for that hit. I just saw that which like under the radar play is impressed to the most Sean like a guy you know we don't tip about the French kit on Tampa Bay a cat. No or no yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Yati going all night up. Doubt. I like his game I like his game, I take him on my team. Big Time Spent Time Coast to ifs really Yup Soggy Stop just shows like all the shows how many good players are down that level that maybe never even get seen. Or just shows like. Don't Suck in stop working. What what about the goalie that that played on one of the Western League teams he played he played in the coast a couple of years ago. Is. A rookie goalie started three games in the playoffs I don't know his case either. Yeah. I am. Buzzing right now names is you're answering these businesses. Up Sean. Weight and you think you're going to work for NBC who came remember these guys names come on I don't even think I could do NBC because I'm fumbled fucking my words half the time you gotta remember these names Sean and if you're going to be like Don Cherry, they're gonNA cancel you know time that's like walking on sat on a Nolan set not knowing your fucking lines if you're getting paid and you're and you're there to do a job I'll know my fucking names my home for that. That's one of the questions I wanna ask you going back to the film portion of it is. Especially, if you do have lines and you're a main actor where you're maybe filming something under extreme conditions, an example that comes to mind would be Leonardo capital in the revenue. Right. He's probably one of those guys where if he doesn't nail his line. To the best that he thinks he can do it. He's like, do it again, right? What what are these guys have to do in preparation to where if they're going to have to spend twenty four hours in the freezing cold where there shivering in their that dialed into that scene like do you have to fuck like what's The pregame routine for that? You you have to you have to know your lines. They have to be baked into you. Into, the fabric of your DNA so that if you get thrown off a building. And you're falling free falling to the ground you could say your lines like any. So that's the measure. That's the that's the that's the barometer. Hey Hey. Sorry is it something where you'd say that actors will remember those lines the rest of their lives like almost like singers with their saws they're done they're they're in there for good. How absolutely absolutely and when you know when you know you have them. What a beautiful ceiling. Oh my God, it's some fucking such a stress reliever like. Dude, there's nothing worse than not having them like baked into you suck additions and I don't have the lines. That's just I'm just so. I just hate Weiss I hate Weiss, what was your? What was your a quote unquote pre game routine like like when was your meal like? How did it all go down? While we were working you know people talk about that movie like Oh it's two hundred, million dollar movie that movie costs way more than that we were working. We were at like three am call times we're getting on at seven thirty at night. So I would get home I would literally try and keep my fucking is open while I was eating I. would eat and that I would sleep and that I would wake up at like twelve thirty because I was so afraid of sleeping. oversleeping and missing the transport to sat that because I was terrified like a rookie missing the boss that. I was just like man. I was so tired Oli sock it was the hardest five weeks in my life. That's why I asked about the lines like the fact that you were that nervous and anxious. When you were in fact, when the cameras are rolling, did you fuck up at all? Many. Many Times Yup. And West. The pressure mount did you feel that anxiety inside? Oh Man I watch. Yeah. But the great thing is, is that You know. Nolan. So Even Keel and. Hill even like give you a moment. and. He never shows any emotion. So he doesn't ratchet you up. It's not like he's he's breathing down your neck like I felt like he knows you're GonNa get it. And when you get, it's GonNa be the right time and I'm I'm not saying that you know I two fumbles may be two fumbles in in in the three days of like the days that we were running my seen seen that I have dialogue two fumbles isn't that bad but there were also other people that were fumbling. We didn't know what we were talking about. We're talking about fucking inverted ordinances and doing a temporal pin search it's like. Ship that there's probably somebody words in there not yet all just two syllables no no. Yeah, as did you see any and you don't have to name any names but did you see any kind of stereotypical Hollywood? Eagle Bullshit with that you would just roll into rise. OUTTA. Ataullah was everybody kind of pulled the rope the same way yeah. Not On that not on that guy's not on Nolan's set because that do doesn't I didn't see him go to the bathroom in five weeks. I never saw him leave set. He was always the first guy on set when I got there he was always already there. I I've never seen anyone with such like. DIAL THE END Doesn't take a fucking shifts off like. Man That guy is a beast in everyone feels that apparently like so we don't there's no chairs onset we know cellphones We don't know when that started. We hear wives tales that like Aaron Tom Hardy you know they they went back to his trailer and like he was late coming to sad or there was something that happened at that point Nolan was like nobody goes back to their trailers we don't care if you have four hour break like we don't need you for four hours you stay on set. And I watched two of the biggest actors in the World Rob Pattinson and John David Washington, sit on set for hours and hours at a time even though they knew they weren't working for three hours. So yeah. It's while I just watched a clip of Jona hell and not to go away from Christopher Nolan but he said that Scorsese was the best he ever saw was able to problem solve maybe thirty thirty minute to three our decisions in thirty seconds he would take a moment he would figure it out in his head and. Ultimately why Jonah Hill thinks he's the best is that very similar with Nolan or problems like this constantly popping up on set I think that he has No I think with his movies. They're so they're so dialed in and they're so planned. They're just so fucking planned and organized that. His movies are very technical, right there's not a lot of like one of the things that people say about Nolan is the there's not enough feel. There's not enough. You know what I mean are a like that's kind of with the reviews people come at them and. There's a low level of emotion in Nolan movies. There's don't comedy or anything really. There's definitely no comedy. Yeah but they're so organized right and everyone. Yeah, there's not there's not a lot of room for for like Miss Hap S- when also when you've got sixteen Chinook helicopters that are shooting fucking grenades that are attached to piano wire, and like the safety is a big thing and and people don't fuck around is it's dangerous. Really it's like they were shoot rockets. Over our shoulder and I'd never seen it before they shoot them on piano wire and the piano wires pulled tight like like you. If you snapped, you'd hear it a ding off it and they shoot the grenades. On the piano wire and the piano wire guides, the grenade so they know they can actually put it like it's going to go right over your shoulder like this just. Follow your line. You're lying you're lying that you gotta run and things are to go over your shoulder and don't work. So there's some wild things that I didn't know existed that. that. They're pulling on these things and also Nolan does everything in camera. Means, he doesn't do special effects like they don't add stuff afterwards. So when the buildings fall down and they put them back together, those are the buildings that are styrofoam that are also on wires and the wires get snapped up and the and the building gets put back together were normally that would be done afterwards as like a the acts effect it's it's like nobody does with this guy does, yeah. You still big on the practical effects tr- doesn't like the much I know what you mean like his movies that technically great filmmaking but sometimes, there's not a lot of emotional resonance with that. That's the critique you talking about. What I want like you went to the theater dude I know it's a pandemic but how fucking is the American movie going public these days even pre pandemic it's fucking brutal brutal time to go the movies people just such assholes aren't they. There's they're disgusting personal same with Broadway if you're fucking cough and I'm saying. If you're a person that costs a lot. You should not be allowed to go into fucking quiet plates. You should not be allowed to go to a Broadway show or fucking movie if you can't chew your popcorn without making it audible. To anyone past your seat directly beside you. You should be fucking. You should be strung up on the ceiling you should not be allowed to go to a movie. Okay. You should be in a fucking pig pet. And it's disgusting and people have ruined. The experience for me, and that's why generally only go I'll go like on a Thursday at one pm I'll do an afternoon matinee. Moving to Montana, because the theater does. Not come you up. I had a Broadway experience where Took my wife New York went to a Broadway show but I got a herniated disc in my neck and on the train this thing flared up. So fucking painful. So I took a muscle relaxer didn't do anything I took another one, and then we went to the show and I had some wine she looks over worse we're second row and I am fucking She's Aches Bryant and I woke up clapping all fired up and she looked over and I was back out I was muscle relaxer and then I also have to admit because I know you'd want string me on a ceiling I get popcorn and I get when I stand up this fifty pieces of popcorn that I missed with my mouth I think I'm I think I'm the scumbag American moviegoer I'm not kidding you are now the worst is the cellphone Sean. It's like I don't do that. Those are the worst even if not like it's a distraction, you the whole idea of the theaters to just focus on the screen and what some asshole pulls out the phone, it can't help. But distract you let alone the fucking talk text and that's the worst I take. I bring a mini flashlight and if anyone gets on their phone in the theater and I'm in there, I turn all my little mini flashlight out and I shine and it's a strong one and I shined my fucking flashlight on I love as. Well, switching gears a little bit I got a kick out of seeing you. On the call of course, the other day I think you reminded everyone? You do not play fucking golf you do not like golf but how did you end up out there and where was that? That looks like a pretty sick course. Oh. God I got invited and literally I said to my friend who invited me I said how bad do you want me to play because I'm probably going to hate you so much when this round is over I'm going to help hold so much resentment it's like people invite me to their wedding like you think I wanNA fuck and go to a destination wedding in the middle of July to your wedding I don't WanNa go to wet it's okay I'm done with that so you invite me to golf how bad do you want to play because I hate the game I hate the whole idea of being able to waste five hours of fucking day by Playing Golf Okay Only reason I like it is I can smoke my brains out and nobody can say anything I can just smoke cigarettes the whole time because I'm outside and I have white cold juice and by the Fort Twelve twelve to thirteen th while I stop playing I don't play. I just ride a cart the rest though the route. That's what I got an added way to enjoy the game. So what I got of that is you'll do a nine hole sand bagger with us who who would be your partner. Actually with all right. Best Ball. Don't care. Wow. Okay. Come out of retirement here to actors against us do because I don't even care who wins. I care so little about the game that I lose all of my competitive instinct. I don't give a what about what about many but. I don't care. I don't care although I love the show. Holy Moly. Have you watched it? Now it is it. It's a NBC show. It's like a mini Putt show. Really. It was a big show during quarantine. It's unbelievable. You GotTa Watch it. It's so funny. That's on the mini putt course and the two guys that hosts the show are actually hilarious. It's it's really like for network show I can't believe it. It's pretty good Sean we've taken.

So you want to stock up for that do definitely be in a few celebratory then couple of notes here the draft is officially set for October sixth and Seventh I'm not sure we tease that before but. It's officially word has come out free agents can start signing on October ninth, which was another date that had been rumored obviously will become that stuff as it happens grads, Guy New York Islanders, general manager, Lou lamoriello for of the Jim Gregory Jug is. General Manager of the year. Would I mean let's you know this guy he's been getting it done for decades between college pro whatever he's like the. of GM's they need to rename the trophy after that's a great caller hiring. A fantastic move the voting was done by GM's in a panel of NHL. Print and broadcast media and the voting was done at the end of the second round which I thought was interesting his all the other woods voting is done after the regular season. So I don't know if that fact that into what a what was interesting I thought him or breeze. Baugh sort of want it is that how you pronounce it breeds? Yeah. I thought he's done a tremendous job in Tampa, obviously with the Moose of getting Coleman and Gujral among other things the Lee kid who's who's kind of emerged as a potential potential selke finalists which were teasing for for a little later in this episode but. Well deserved man this guy's like continue to do it over the years. comes over from Toronto in two years is able to whip and organization from I don't want to see a bottom feeder but just know they've they're fucking salt squad. Now he's just gotTa. Make sure he can lock Barzel as opposed to him. Get the fuck. Offer sheet when with Doric here you guys mentioned how Lou will always stay within the old school part of the game. In the sense he'll have a tough guy playing. He's alway he has Johnston on the islanders. He's got Martin who's played great. So I think he really stays true to the way. The game was Lou originally started doing this four hundred years ago that you know you have toughness in your lineup and you're not afraid to play those guys you almost wonder if. If that was. I don't want to say reason you've got out of Toronto but just maybe the the butting heads of play, not type style and still thinking it's relevant to where. dubus has a a a style in mind in the way that he wants to play analytically and whatever it is. So the dinosaurs are prevailing right now get definitely it just any left aren't even better success with the island is maybe it was an inside job get into various to jump ship and. Evil Laugh the La Kings signed defenceman Sean Walker to a four year point six, Bandar Extension I. He was an undrafted free agent out of Bowling Green one, hundred, nine games already with the Kings. Obviously. They like what they see from when they commit to them for the future. As we know about this kid I'm going to be honest every time I watch you just see kind of flies under the radar you don't notice many mistakes. You don't really notice some tunnel offensively but. I would imagine the there's something there. They see a guy who could be consistent in the top four. When they got got rid of Martinez in got something back in return for him for sending them over Vegas. Maybe they thought he was ready to kind of slide into that type of role. So interesting to see how it all comes about because that's a team that. They haven't been playing maybe up to what their their standards are the last couple years. So they need to start trading in the right direction under Blakey, and he's a good example of a guy who you hear about all these people that play in the NHL At nineteen twenty wall. He's twenty five now and last year was his first year where he was up and down. In the NHL, and then this year you know had a full F-. His first full season and had a great season. So you don't you don't have to be drafted high. You don't have to be drafted it all and you don't have to play in the League when you're twenty twenty, one years old there's you have to have patience and this is a perfect example of it. So four years at bowling green full year in the minors a little bit more time in the minors. That's what it takes for a lot of people. With Hade. Okay. Well, I mean although the state taxes are pretty heavy. So maybe say State taxes unrestricted free agent to be titled. Two Folio. Of course went from the Kings Vancouver city. Absolutely loved his experience would Vancouver this season? He Does Wanna stay with actual the. Letter said I'd I'd WanNa stay there too. You know thirty and a sleep maybe can rent one of your seven houses up there. And? Be Reunited with his buddy tanner. Pearson. As well who they had a lot of success together and outweigh seems like he fit right in at home there and Yeah. Interested to see. That's like a reverse like you know hey, can you can I please come back? Yeah. Hey, guys I really liked it here. Can you please? Okay thanks. Yeah. He did he. Yeah. He's a great player great playoff performer as well. Well, given today's climate.

E. S. ziprecruiter dot com slash checklists. Are? MOVING DOWN FOR A. Couple of couple of trades, couple trades, boys, one of our buddies yeah. A Carolina's sent defenceman Joe Admits into to Montreal for Fifth Rounder and next month's draft. He is a pending your facial the Hampshire eventually dealing for first deb Zoll that obviously must want to sign him though I mean they're going after all the old Saint Louis guys who won the Cup there? Yes. Guy Jake Jake the snake now he's got Edmonson if they can lock them in, but we talked about Petri who's up for contract share correct I believe he's a pending Ufa. He's going to be looking that up right now, and after the playoff performance, he had in them knowing that they got be strong on the back end in order Safai to survive I. Don't know I. Mean should be interesting to see who keep around. Yeah. Peaches got one more year left. fucking. Yeah. Well, Klay Claude nobody loves veteran defenseman within close. Julianne. So I mean obviously like I said they fifth round form so they must want the inside track Oh we're gonNA. Keep me looking like an idiot Jamie Ben Situation. Now, we're going to say definitely treasury. Over again, guys in other one penguins traded Nick Buke stats and many for a conditional pick back home twenty one draft. Going to he's going into the final year of a deal that pays them four point one, million, this year half of Pittsburgh will pick up. Oh, I had him as a pen in your faith to actually. So which your take on this deal with I, I like it I mean he showed some sick promise in Florida especially one year the fifty points He's battled injuries though it seems like every year he's Kinda this year was really tough for him and at the only played thirteen games. So you look at. Big. Prospect. Coming out of Minnesota's from Minnesota had a chance in Florida to play play for a long time and then a real good sh chance in Pittsburgh to play with great players. But hasn't necessarily founded his groove in terms of where he fits into a lineup and where he can kinda play his best hockey. So now if you're going if you're thinking what could help me going home playing playing in your home city for a team that's definitely gonNA probably play you a little bit more offensively the question. Is, can he stay healthy? So if he can I think he makes a huge difference and it's a good trade. If he can't you just feel bad for a guy who had a tough time staying healthy in this league I I know from experience that Garin I think it's a good move. It's low risk high reward type of situation. If it doesn't work out, you got one year and I believe he's only making what four maybe four and a half full one in Pittsburgh's picking up half plus contract contract uniform. He's going to have extra motivation for sure in addition to being back home. Also Sean Katori when the Selke with fourteen hundred, twenty, four votes he beat out Patrice Bergeron Ryan Them business surprise here I mean people kind of little changing of the guard me. Yes. Guy I would imagine it's not as only one EP plays that full two, hundred foot game and he's right in a category with those guys in the sense that he can produce offense when doing it and while playing. Against the top lines. Yeah, and that's that's a special type of player congratulations and I believe that's his first correct I believe it is as well. Yeah, and that's tough. Called me last year. Yeah. I think I think some of these words almost like Oscars like some guys just after you get nominated so many times I think voters tend to vote nominated mcgann even if they weren't necessarily the best three that yes. Because you know. Nine years ago. Now, he's picked in the top ten and you imagine you know at at that time a flash on top ten pair. Ninety point guy in the Andes hasn't turned into an elite level score but all my God, could you Stanley Cup with this guy he he really does do it all and he's totally lived up to why he was drafted that high because he can do it at both ends. So congrats and Appel Nate Dogg. Well, it wasn't a trophy. He wanted not the Stanley Cup but he did when the lady ahead a funny quarter after talking about said, I said I got the call during the Lady Bing now on him that's about it. That's probably all get on himself. The modest I can, and we know those Yeah. They got that big brother little brother Batman. Robin relationships. What do you think the odds are right now that McKinnon gets Hart Trophy in his career Oh say. Minus two fifty. But think about like mcdavid dry. There's so many players. Yeah. That's that's. To win an MVP, you need so many things to go. Right I think he gets worn maybe plus to fifteen that minus two fifty. That's what I meant whereas for most guys. had. No. Clue. What was going on? Yeah, I just got it opposite. That's all right. It's all it should happen. Yeah. We just roll with the gambling thing plus minus I have no fucking Sunday Alex. Makia won the MESSI leadership award back to back years last year I believe as well. No. A much of the top my head. But I do know undrafted free agent to a captain man that's That's quite a fucking ride. I'll never forget he went over to Russia. I? Don't know if he couldn't find a figure out the. One Way. and. He know about a guy who completely resurrected his career and a guy like lateness career who's able to still keep up with these young guys he's my age. He's the coach and thirty seven freak nature and you could just tell by the response from his teammates online today like. tweets out right away, Zac Rinaldo this guy's beloved in the locker room and a leader through and through. So I'd imagine they get at least a few Moore's of high end production out of him. The Guy. Was One of the oldest player to ever want to Norris trophy was he not or maybe deal this I? Don't know if he was the oldest but he was definitely up there. That was a sick I think one of only a few guys past the age of thirty five Simmons. One it last year. All okay. So this is this his second one though no, you're just getting fucking. Oh, maybe it was the north I was thinking Oh whoopsie. He's got so many awards. This episode couple quick notes Shaun. Weiss might not be a name that is very familiar off the top of your head, but he played Goldberg the mighty ducks movies as a kid. He, posted the he's been sober for about two hundred and seventy two days. Now as of Sunday I, you'll get arrested last year that his mugshot. Goes Viral as as happens these days he's been battling addiction. Issues for a while well, the kid look great man he puts them weight back on you got a new set of Chiklis and he just looked happy and I, don't know I mean we we have a ton of mighty ducks fans out there and I, just thought it was a nice story won't pass along. Obviously wish him the well-known forward which from the best and you know I, don't feel. Many of his by tell them Tom with Paul Farm, yeah he looked happy for sure. Looked great and. One last thing. They'll be get another little old clip of the widow come who is finding these clips all my God the Internet's crazy. Apparently, it was a Quin Hughes mom that was interviewing you guys I have no idea. If that's true. I saw a bunch of the comments say that that was Quainton Jack's mom but. I will never forget that game because it was right around Christmas time and we played jail and we worked in Kevin Schafer who's in the videos a freshman defense, and he's having a sick year. Our team struggled out euros my junior year we both ended up with hat tricks. He got the hat trick I I ended up getting one late in the third we dominated Yale. Thumbing yeah they ended up becoming really good but then they were shit. If you played at Yale and like two thousand three, your team was trash and we rolled over on and we suck that year but we got wrecked after that game and I don't know if be. You ever had to defensemen score a Hattrick in the same game. So it was an exciting time now to see the interview. I get. So people say I look. So old in that imagine button yet Benjamin Button I almost I almost don't mind it though if I'm still looking like I, didn't call say. That isn't necessarily a bad thing that you lose bad then. Because college girls are like Dude. Yeah, are you are you a bartender here or are you in the school but I I still think that that night will be memorable because getting a Hattrick and colleges defenseman? That's Juergens that's jirgas material base knock I really is and then have to. Drove wide. I drove wide cut in for the third one. Of course, the video had no cups in my goals just my stupid ears. And my my interview God. fucking heard. Cliche said I wanted to go to serve. MINUS THREE IN A, and a half segments said, I said, you know seven times. Third. Second. Clip, but I, mean, the modesty was there. Holding it back. That's probably why you're fumbled fucking on your words. You Really WanNa be like. Krepon Bucket Post up at the Barn Swipe my old man's credit card tonight fellow as to give me twenty bucks after each game twenty box I remember we'd go to DADS -freshing. Be We all give the bartender twenty bucks drink all night and water time I didn't have a bank card. Those were the days job. All right boys I think that about wraps up.

You know, when you're sick. I had nothing. But now have you missed an episode yet. No. So you have your. I also have an iron shriek as well. Ours show up Allie collect paychecks. You got the best job in the world. You know? You know? And I'm sorry. If I fended you there Grenell. You do you put in a lot of work. We'll be finished a podcast usually half to go the rest of the night by by editing it so those people listening chirp Grenell online. This guy is working in the trenches constantly, and a big reason probably why this happened. So I wake up the other morning, and you don't have a bad habit of always checking my phone when I wake up I wish I did. I know. So I go to Instagram. Sure shit. The first thing that pops up is spitting chick. Let's Instagram and Doug and in the last episode. There's a few things I said, I said Tyson berry deserves nine million, obviously, he's my buddy people think I'm delusional. I know I'm just hire pumping my buddy, he's probably gonna get seven and a half maybe closer to Haiti going like this. But hey, if he scores next game it's going to be eleven million because I'm agent now. Anyway, so I'd said some of what Seth Jones and probably how I would say he's probably in the. Five to minimum top eight defense in the league. He's in crawl Grenell grabbed my quote, and and it's there, so I read it, and then I look up, and it's Camac. It's. Picture now. I was I'm like, no way. How might this is spitting chocolates me is this is this is a funny thing since it black. So so so I text the group shag, oh, did you post this screen shot? And he goes, yes. Like with no other reply, and I'm like, you know, set Jones black, right? And he's like, yeah. I know said white guy in it could be the whitest guy in the world other than Ryan wish from Connecticut Camac so to be fair, this guy's up grinding allnight shop on the podcast. So he's probably not seeing straight. He's on his phone all day keeping up with the Instagram's and the tweets by the images. Got you. Spot Getty images Getty, images, fucked me, so hard. So I going Getty type into find the picture for the Photoshop I type in Seth Jones. I click on the most popular picture of Seth Jones, which just happened to be a picture. Camac and sin. Well, probably because they messed up and put Camac it's in everyone's laughing about it. So I look at the picture. It says such Jones I look at his jersey number. It says three you can't really see the one not my fault said Jones is in the darkest dude in the world, you know. I mean, I think he he's half black. So I wasn't sure. So I'm thinking it could be the end of a long shift. You know, gassed he's white in the face. He's he you know, he's been out there for a while. I don't know. Ricochet shoddy. He's light skinned brother. I dunno. I think he's kind of like he's like a half half guy. He I mean, either way the fact response on the chiklis group chat with so funny goes, yes. Like then. Getty. Images fucked me. Yeah. They did. They did whoever was wearing a Getty. Did fuck up. The caption on Getty images. I mean, they should know that you could see three on the jersey. But the helmet was right there. You can see the one three on the do over some of the comments because you've got it down pretty quick. It was up for about three minutes and it had about one hundred fifty comments. And that's up comment was who runs this clown show? Instead. So people who rip on the Instagram or the tweets Granada gets one little thing wrong. But this guy's at all day all night running both accounts source. He's on a horse. Oh, speaking of another scenario was he he was pumping. Adam FOX's tires and hard. I would say a feminist came out and pretty good because he said he's I think the only college hockey defenseman to ever average close to our over a point and a half per game. Meanwhile, he averaged he wanted to point at one point four or five, right? So he just rounded up whatever. And then obviously all the all the people who just want to stir shit on Twitter went after him over point five. They went after you over. But whatever that many, whatever like, you know, people are always going to be nerds about it. So he signed back and people you fall back and forth. You can you can chirp them back, and they'll be like, whatever, you know, chirp each other while this girl like goes out enlists off like ten female, NCAA hockey. Players who had had over a point a game defensemen female defenseman who'd gone over point Hafer game, basically insinuating. He was being sexist for not including the women in it where it's like Jesus Christ, man. So so so she kind of going after barstool a little bit. And I kind of I killed her with kindness. Oh, that's just a little ridiculous. So also, I wanted to tell you guys I listened to my first ever spit and checklists that's wild. So as as, you know, I don't like listening to my voice, I've never listened. But I was like I got to catch up. I got to see how the boys did without me. So I'm listening. So I wrote down a couple of things. It's basically like watching tape. You know what I mean? So I wrote down a couple of things opening song who fucking picked that song granola music. What is that song? That was that was some song by Aerosmith. That's sucks. Okay. We've used like fifty gone. It's like if you heard it. It's like, it's like all I don't know. And then the guy's. Ooh. What is this beginning? Either way guys had rallies getting shit Cantu. I suppose on news, by the way. What was the last thing? I had here. Oh step on interview. Awesome. I really enjoyed listening to him funny guy. The one thing he said that I was like I have to bring up if kids on official recruiting visits aren't getting banged up anymore. I think he said that I don't know if they do that anymore. I'll puke because that's what official visits were. That's what they are you go there. You have an absolute time the boys get, you buckled, and you enjoy college life. So if that's changed disgusted and embarrassed ever been a college hockey player. Hopefully, that's that's always remain one of the things you do is get after with the boys on an official visit other than that guy. Sounded great. I miss being on there. There were things that I was like, I would've said this. I would have said this. So I might have to check in another one after this. Maybe I'll become a listener. Now, I was driving home last trip for me this season an actual network. I'm sorry everyone. I know sometimes you like to see the nerdy wit on television at NHL net. But I was driving driving on ninety five. Through the ship bag towns it Connecticut. Fucking Norwalk Stamford, Dan, berry Greenwich. And I just started thinking back we used to play the Connecticut. I just think back to these rich little spoiled, Connecticut kids that are good at hockey, the Connecticut Yankees our team we used to play against I fucking hated these kids so much now I've grown I Ryan, Shannon. I grew up planning San we've become buddies. God that I hate these kids growing up little rich fucks, Connecticut, Yankees water name, if you're from Connecticut, but they're a great team. But I'm done doing that Dr until next NHL season. And I'm chiklis here. Moving forward love. We're happy to have you back and all your energy. I have to bring this up. Okay. The Simpsons were all over the Ottawa Senators recently. Oh, yeah. Schroeck in your cough off his incredible. Yeah. My feed was full of it on Twitter. The only thing is I just I haven't watched the Simpsons and years. So I was like, okay. It's funny. But it just wasn't the same like maybe fifteen twenty years ago. I mean, it's cool the Simpsons I did hockey thing. I guess I just I don't have that. Same Clack passion for the latest. Simpson's. The first everyone knows the first season. So what if you're the senators you're going even get by the? I think you got to embrace it. If your auto, I think, we talked about it the beer the guy chug in the beer, and now all of a sudden, you're on the Simpsons and one of the most famous cartoons. If not the most famous cartoon of all time, you I think you take that as a win auto senators fans, and let's keep the ball rolling. Here. We got some momentum. You guys are going to be fine g hair about controversy little followed after I guess there was a scene, you know, Ralph welcome that dummy classmate and the Lisa Lisa's classmate. Dad? Somebody was offended by character. Yes. He he said they will like doing some Newfoundland, and they like, you know, some and he's like he's like look at me. I am a new fee and then he liked clubs like a stuff baby. Ted off the new Fianna? New so needless to say people got pissed the new new fees will pissed I mean, I don't know how they should've. They should've just had them crack open a beer and crush it and say, I'm a new crushing the babies. Yeah. That would have probably gone over. Well, I could see why people might took offense to it. But they haven't get screeched in or get a kill get us. Tv. A lot of don't wear rubbers out there saying talked. Affects talked to get after it Saint affects near there. I don't know. We we played them at BU once that's a college. Right. That's a Canadian. I think they're close to their anywhere around there. Maybe it's closer to Halifax. I'm not great with the geography thing, you guys know that. But you guys want to jump into some hockey me, Phil English. That's possible. What are we? I don't even know what that's from who set it anything. But I'll say this his delivery on the Simpson jokes are way better in person. Yes, I I dealt with him in person for many episodes. I always liked him a little more than as well. So getting into these playoffs. This is this is incredible. We're halfway through the second round. And it's one of the most memorable playoffs I can ever imagine. So the fact that we got these teams going on right now. I know that there's not some there's some teams that aren't very traditional that looked like they could be in the Eastern Conference final the Stanley Cup. So it's just a crazy year. And and we can get into it. I with who Carolina New York, and before we do that one thing we didn't mention on the podcast, and the last few episodes was the fact that there was some crazy shit that went down in the first round. Of course, the sharks Golden Knights and leaves Bruins game two and shockingly enough the referees from lease Bruins game too. And the. Sharks game seven are no longer working the playoffs. And apparently they were supposed to keep going and working the games and the league felt that. Hey, let's just let's put these guys on the shelf just based on the amount of traction a gain online. I respect that. Yeah. That's punishment for not doing your job correctly healthy scratched if you fuck it play like shit and in game. Yeah. I mean, you have a bad night. And that's what happens. Yeah. I I'm not sure how the conversation goes behind the scenes, I would imagine that they're also trying to protect these guys to if you if you put these guys right back in the mix who knows how they're going to react like know, maybe they're going to be nervous and second guessing himself even more after that type stuff happened. So I think we got to be a little sympathetic as the fact that these guys made a mistake on all of a sudden it just getting dragged through the mud for for you know, for a week online. I saw someone sent a tweet. I don't know who it was. And they it was NBA has a lot of issues. Officiating even more. So they're having enormous issues. And I think Mark Cuban went on a rant about. It's always an issue in the playoffs, especially as social media gets bigger and bigger. But there was a quote, and it was Kevin Mikhail talking about going after a ref when he was playing back in the day. And he's like what the fuck are you doing tonight just flip it on this Raffin the ref and this goes along way? I as a former player, this would go a long way the refs says, Kevin dude, I'm just having an off night as a player you have to like, I'm having a bad night. Kevin goes, I'm not saying one more word to I'm not saying to you. Because just to say that to me dude, things are moving quick tonight. I ain't got it tonight. It happens players that happens as wraps. I think to be open as a reference say that means a lot and think about the the San Jose situation. Maybe when that puck was dropped for whatever reason he was thinking about play before at where he's thinking nothing significant is going to happen right off the puck drop. So he hadn't just tuned in right away. Whereas that split second that he missed. List? It's an have shit. Yeah. It's like Kerry Frazier talked about like he just that one second where he said that guy was in sight line. He missed the play and he didn't see it. So he couldn't call it. They said if you don't see what happened you can't call it. So the basically the opposite happen. And if you fall carry Frazier on on Twitter, he kind of explained in went through what his feelings were regarding that and plenty other stuff in the officiating with this Stanley Cup playoffs. Carry Frazier for this text back at me, text I've been running around, but he said he's got some something in the works with Gulf. I gotta give them a call. Apparently. He's a stick. I told you about this. I texted you the whole thing how we want you to join us golf club. He talked about it with biz. It's like this exclusive call club, join me time response. But I'm sure you are busy. You do guys. Let me call him back. The worst thing you have to a referee biz in any level. I didn't I didn't play much, of course. And I was I was really good to the refs in the NHL. Like, I would always get them water. I know you kidding job. But I would put water bottle and a Gatorade bottle because I would always sit closest to the middle where the lines were come over. And just stand between the benches. I think that's just protocol. So there's no Donnie Brooks in between TV timeouts, but. I yeah. I would imagine there's a few times I fucking lost. It. I snapped once in Mark recommend me. Go apologize after the game. Linesman? He got an off sides, call incorrect. They think it was. I don't remember who the lines was. I think I call them. I don't know. It was bad either way. It wasn't great. And he and Recchi's like dude, I was rookie till he's with the fuck you doing. He's going there and apologize to that guy. Oh, so sorry. Sorry. Sorry, buddy. Guy new I think he respected Rex reckon ball v. And like, what are you doing? Drink drink away my sorrows during number like fifty one at the time. I don't know. I think I still had six before nineteen. But either way I had no business talking ref like that or lying, and I mean, the the rest they have the league has to do some. But they don't want like roast them online. So to speak too much. I mean, they have to sort of discipline them for the mistakes. But they don't want to go to heavy on him. I just want them to I want them to maybe a little bit of media after. Yeah. How fucking awesome would that? Be media can ask him a question. They can explain I just missed it or they can explain their opinion. It'll never happen. But it would be it would be must watch TV. Yeah. I think your word and like you said with first round was great. Sometimes we gotta shitty second round over the years. But that's not happening this time Carolina. The island is Wednesday night and iraq-us Raleigh bond. The Carolina Hurricanes continued their unlikely much to the wheels finals by pushing the island is to the brink with the five to win game. Four to empty net has made it looked like a blow out was much closer than that. The story of the game for me was Curtis. Mcelhinney guy talked about quite a bit on the show. Thirty five year old journeyman backup was very good made twenty eight saves. He won his first ever playoff. Start become the oldest goalie to start his first playoff game. And we did mentioned last time is three first appearances with three different teams biz. That's the first guy that they were all in relief amazing story. I'm really happy for the guy. And also this before I let go off on on that series. Imagine Carolina wins the Cup. They're banged up right now going through injuries. They had us both goalies, which was a question for paying her. You actually had who who's going to be. Joining us later is teams that have the advantage of going with two guys all year. And in one guy doesn't get burnt out. And we kinda talked about that going into playoffs where where that's where they might have the advantage very similar to the islander situation. Although they have went with lender this entire playoffs. But it is. It is amazing. What they've done. It's just that next guy up mentality. Extremely well coached. They haven't stopped what they're doing. And what was the other thing? I wanted to mention about them. The fact that they got that extra day before the game was huge for them because they are a little banged up. Guys are a little tired where got club back probably because of that. Maybe we'll correct because he he took up not knowing if he was going to play or not Iraq. That's what rob Brindamour said. And he so he got the green light. And I mean, look at the islanders where they're probably like man, we're sitting on these two losses for an extra off day. It fucking sucks, man. There's a lot of thinking that's going on your head. You just want the puck to drop when you're in that situation. So just just amazing what they've done and how many guys have stepped up for them in order to be without right now. It's awesome to watch and back to mcilhenny. That's that of being the oldest to ever started playoff game. Is awesome. The guy before who did it. I don't remember his name which is bad of me because I just saw this graphic. They put up any network. I think the picture was black and white. I think it was it was wasn't black and white. It was like the original. Then then Grinnell centered in from Getty images. Wait that was perfect. So either way the fact that they have him is is interesting because they would never got him when Toronto put him on waivers. If Scott darling hadn't got hurt right before after we talked to them. Yeah. Into that was a bad luck. That was a bummer for dolls, but they grabbed him when that injury happened in Toronto did not want to lose him. They risked it, but they lost them. And people said before like all the islanders. They're going to get to play against the backup to he's not the backup marasmus and mcelhinney world were a tandem this year, those two guys, and it was not one's better than the other maranda start in the plan because he got a little Hawk Down. Shrek all it was so mcelhinney coming in. And then getting a start was not a step down for the hurricanes. Razek put an awesome, I felt bad for me Sam slam stick he was bummed out that he got hurt. But still they have a guy that table to go in and do a great job and get a win. What a cool story that is the islanders. The islanders. Let me talk to you about the New York Islanders or the Brooklyn islanders. Dave portnoy's calling now because it's a different team. That's that's for when you're playing a different arena. First thing is to all you islanders fans. I actually feel really bad for you. Because it's sucks that you weren't able to play this round in the now all seem that blows. And even as a fan watching these games. Those two games sucked to watch. It's not even fun. It was quiet guys eating sushi. It's just it isn't what hockey is. And they have this incredible home-ice advantage at the Cawley that they just don't have it really sucks as an islanders fan 'cause I can almost guarantee it wouldn't have been to ocare allina having Saint all that they lost that game yesterday. They gave a valiant effort. It's too two. They go down three two. They got two shots in the final fourteen minutes to fucking shots on net in the final fourteen minutes when you need a goal. So you can. All you want about anything else. You do not have the offense Mr. season on the season on the line. And you know, what's weird is I picked them people say what you picked him to mushroom. You picked him to mushroom. You have the power to pick against who you want to you. You can pick who you want to lose by picking them to win cushite how much fan so much much. Maybe that's true. Maybe I have some money on Carolina in this series. Once I picked him in the spitting chiklis podcast. And then I realized what's going to happen. Maybe this was all planned. But you know, what? In the end in the end islanders. I told you I told you all year you wouldn't make the playoffs. I was wrong. I admitted it I told you you wouldn't beat the penguins. I was wrong. I admitted it I also told you wouldn't do shit in the long run your wouldn't win the Stanley Cup. And I was right. You do not have the offense to compete at a high level in the Stanley Cup playoffs. They have three goals in three game. Two of which have gone off the Carolina Hurricanes. You have one goal in the second round scored off your stick without hitting whiter, red jersey. You are not that good of a team and Borelli and the rest of your pack of mutants that come after me I've been correct I've been wrong before. But I've been correct this round. So to understand me saying I wasn't rooting for your lose. I picked you. I picked you guys. So in the end, I was right about what this team had in this round moving forward. It sucks to see because they screwed on a plane in their home building. I don't think they'll get swept. You can't get swept guys you just swept someone don't make me film. A video of me scraping up. My kitchen fours, the fours just got redone. It looks great don't make me video of sweeping up my kitchen floor with with maybe a cutout picture of the islanders Borelli's face Borelli's pizza, and like a Brooklyn islanders logo. I don't wanna do that. I don't wanna have to do that. But that video could come. If there is a sweep. Trying to actually by the way. Sorry, sorry. I'm all over the map of Brock Nelson, patting me on the head. What do you doing Brock American hero Borelli calls? You what are you too? And I'm hoping we get up to that beauty league. And we can talk to my think he's a Minnesota guy. Right. Maybe we could talk about that. No, no idea. But yeah, maybe I'm a big karma guy. He was getting a little cocky there. And then not only that are a he goes around the net and gives Dougie Hamilton little cold shoulder. And by the way, like I love I love this whole Dougie Hamilton escapades during these playoffs because obviously he was ripped on pretty hard for dodge in the Ovechkin hit that led to a goal has been a guy in this playoff who's been more abused than Dougie Hamilton. And just kind of like, whatever you just puts his head down getting the last laugh, isn't he? Yes, he is. He's just keeping calm. Yeah. In case. I'll listens weren't show. We were talking about after Josh Bailey tied. The game Brock Nelson decided the Pat Curtis mcelhinney. The head kind of like good kid good kid type thing. And after that, the is outscored three nothing completely outplayed. So you wonder what you know, what do you think of doing that? I mean, it's pretty condescending thing to do to appear in the league, isn't it? And it also probably could have. Gotten a way bigger response if somebody Pacha going head, you can go sucker. Yeah. Yeah. Like craze, drew go drink out of his water bottle behind the net. Yeah. That's right. I mean, that's even worse. I would say patting the goalie on the head after we get scored on than drinking water to actually touch them in like now all play devil's advocate here. Maybe it was a fly by where he was worried because mcelwain was a little bit far of his net. Where he was just making sure if I make contact with him I wanted to make sure I was I was coming in peace where it was like a little tap either way you can now that sure. So that's maybe how how why he did it that might be how some islanders fans may have interpreted it where it wasn't malicious. Now, I wouldn't have been pleased about it. And if I was Dougie Hamilton after he did that and then got the cold shoulder. I would hit the button on my gloves, and I would've cave that fucking guys face said now, that's just me. I'm a little bit more old school don't touch my fucking goalie and in Carolina's case too. Guys that I wrote down on my phone here. Justin Williams, how long has he been doing this for Christ's sake hundred fifty or one hundred fifty one playoff games. He still scoring that goal last night on the sickest play by all if people want to argue talk about that play. Leonard made a good job stopping the puck on a rim around. He then did a good job of getting the puck in the air. That's the goal is job. Get in the air to get around the Ford. We'll all hose hand is such a complete joke. Knocks it out a mid air. Then throws this perfect pass to Justin Williams who didn't get a ton on it. But still enough to get a huge goal and he interviewed out he gave an interview after on the ice. And it's like the sky's scoring big goals in the playoffs for like fifteen years. All eventually, you're just playing with the houses money were in most cases, a lot of guys would be nervous in those situations where he's like, even if I don't score my resume speaks for itself. But that he's just so happens. He's in the right place at the right time because he's so relaxed because he is playing with the houses money, and then bloop and never. That guy never played in the H L never spent the game. He has no call one of those guys one of those guys that went right? Like, there's the oh to the NHL and just hasn't stopped like their step on one thing that we did forget to mention was he had a hattrick in his first game ever any all. Oh, yeah. Yeah. So we. So we we didn't bring that up. Did he he was very humble about his? Yeah. I scored a couple and torch said I could stick around yet. A hatch. All you got to fuck in gel that off the top of a roof, bro. You in that interview? He didn't mention that. Are you're right yet show step on humbleness made me wanna puke just kidding step. Love you. But I actually got a text from Sean Avery after and says, how do you not ask him about the assist on that third goal? He scored and I'm Mike O KU system on. He's like who. Do you? Did. He goes the nicest assist I've ever seen in my life. Sean Avery talk at autozone. Assist there except on school that we didn't match on the five cast so sorry for not bringing that up for all you Rangers fans. But there you go. How soon before we got a headline form NHL jealous shot dead by homeless man on Fifth Avenue on the the one the other day. I actually laugh out loud. He's pro. It's too early for this. Not yet. So that's just beautiful stuff. His instagram. Moore's last person, I wanna mention Carolina Jacob Slaven. Notes. No, no. I'm fucking note machine in my head. I don't need that computer RS five thousand stickers on his computer Grateful Dead star track. Oh, don't be saying that Dez star four Star Wars. There's a clump. What about what's the Clemson tiger in their forward? You know? It's funny yeti, I guess he got a yeti and decide I'm gonna put the sticker on my computer. Actually when we were down New York wall knock. It's we will whatever hotel I walked out and I had a Houston hat on the jets plane Houston that they bunch of Houston people. Hey, y'all what's going on you from Houston? Mclovin boston. And they were big Clemson fans because the quarterback on the Texans was Clemson, they give gave me a Clemson Tigers. That makes sense. Well, back to Jacob Slaven. Eleven assists in the playoffs right now. Which is outstanding. And this guy's playing an enormous role. He's a great skater. I don't think people know about this guy. I don't blame you because Carolina. You don't see them on national TV this has been a surprise season. But he is a horse. And I remember a couple years ago. He had a play on Connor mcdavid that really opened my eyes for how good of a skater. He was and the past last night, Tara, vine and on the first goal was awesome. Just a seeing eye through the box pass. That was perfect. And it's a guy that that's kind of Carolina's whole season playing out of their mind after having an off year last year as the whole team did. So it's a guy that's really carrying that D. And it's a good D. Of course, a guy like that. It's lost playing a non a major market. But he was one of the guys got sent by the Carolina or if not the only guy to the NHL media day in Chicago. So we did a what's in the box. So made it anywhere. We'll know if. Yeah, it didn't make it at he's he's a pretty quiet guy. Getting married last summer. He was an interesting guy spoke to him a little bit afterward. And, but you know, when people get sent to those obviously this kids are good player. Yeah. They're big dog. I just don't know enough about the league where I knew he was I don't fall Carolina that closely. But I was I'm gonna keep on this kid, and he's been unbelievable. If you were not faking being sick last episode. You would hurt me talk about all these d- around the NHL playoffs. We've been having some coming out parties, and he's probably at the top of the list. I got laughed I forgiven Carolina's de the angelie. Is because it was based on basically slave in Hamilton actually has twelve assists with you got two more tied. Wow. We got one on them and the empty Niners. I guess or something he's tied for the league lead. And I I actually think that's crazy that you got laughed at for that. Because I would say overall team defense going into that series. I would have given the nauseous based on their structure and trots systems, but like Faulk how about his goal to that. We say. He say nice come out of the penalty box and actually get the break room. Please your team just killed it off. And then you get the score a goal by coming out of the you get rewarded for taking a minor. Also, I didn't realize four pick man. I mean, that's a fucking gem joint fourth round missed the game in Las not least hurricanes fans that building was banana lands. We have to tip our cap to you every. I mean, it's hard to like give the advantage to one building. I mean, of course, because I said on TV that they asked what's the hardest building left to play. And granted they're all tough besides Brooklyn. And I was like I Carolina might be right. There of Scott Stevens told me when he played them later in his career at the near the end of his career and the devils in a playoff series. It was complete madhouse. So it's great to see and those fans deserve it. I understand why they don't necessarily show up a ton. When the team isn't good. But when they're good they come in droves. And they're loud included in that fan base are the cheerleaders. They have and they are nice rockets rockets, I actually met a group of welcome Dallas actually met a group of them over Christmas break when I was at the barstool Christmas party. We went out after that Bowery bar, and we met a group of six or seven of them all even that. But. Awesome. Awesome group girls, very attractive. And and what have we got next? I would say the tailgate and helps out too because people get juiced up this tailgate and seeing down there. That fact is people are more gassed up they're gonna make a lot more noise in the in the building to and I would also put him in a level of class with Nashville predators fans, whereas they're not too aggressive online all they want. All they demanded all year was just every other people's respect for their team. And they're not very malicious. They're not the type of fan base. Like, let's use Frankie Borelli as an example, not a lot of Frankie Barelli's in the Carolina wounded and he's wounded dog. Now, I mean got called him a psychopath, which he is. And it's just you haven't even heard from the kidney more what happened to him. Well, listen this series battle going. This series is not over you never. I've seen crazier things before we've seen a reverse sweep in in the last few years when the kings did it to the San Jose Sharks. So let's let's not count Frankie. Out and keep in mind, where we still got some pictures here that we got to hopefully, get right actually had some notes on that the island is trying to avoid becoming just the fourth team to get swept in the second round after doing this weeping and the first round they swept Pittsburgh shame one hundred ninety one hundred ninety times any Joe history team has trailed three oh four of those one hundred ninety rallied back to win. Like, we just said seventy five thousand one of them. So who knows a little historical precedents? They could do it as for the canes since being down three two to the cap. They've reeled off five straight wins. Three of them. Coming on the road outscored opponents seventeen to eight they've done it with two different goals undefeated at home for and also, I don't know, man. I think I think the toast. I think they get a team. They better get a game. You can't let me make that video in my kitchen. That. Just trying to imagine Frankie Borelli and how he's doing. I think we gotta move onto the next series. Oh, boys real quick before going further wanna talk to you for a second about door. Dash it's dinner time. But your stomach is rumbling.

The talk of this one Brad Marchand little shots at the back of the head. I got shit online. I called it dirty. But I also said he wasn't gonna get suspended. He didn't get suspended biz. You said you had a lot to say about this, which you take brother, man. Okay. Well, let's let's first off by Sam establish that I thought it was dirty and cowardly. I'm a little more old school that's been established. I thought it was a little aggressive of a punch. I wasn't crazy about the how hard it was. And the guy was on his knees. I love Brad Marsha in the way, he plays in the way, he competes. I think he's great for the league in the simple fact that he's he's polarizing and he brings entertainment constantly. I mean as you can see we're now talking about him again as was the entire universe hockey universe. Anyway, the last forty eight hours, I wasn't crazy about that. One. If he would have gotten a game, I would have been okay with it. And I know that that I didn't think he was going to get a game similar to RA said, I just I was like damn like, I kind of not made excuses for him. But hey, I was like, you know, he used to play like that. He's done some dirty things. He's done some things. In the meantime, that are kind of like borderline like stepping on the stick and just kind of like Chirpin guys obviously going back with a face licking. Nobody was hurt still a little bit. Like do. I think he should have got suspended for that. No. But he got a PB wack. I think that giving him a game. Here would have said, y'all. You've been getting a little out of hand you've been riding this wave of writing that line. This is kind of a slap on the wrist sand tone your shit down because as as as some old school people might say, all whatever it's a game within a game. He was just giving them a little shot to try to get that guy off his game in the climate. We're in now with with you know, worrying about player safety in head injuries. I just thought it was I wasn't crazy about the punch, and listen, I'm old school. But I I used to handle my business face to face and I used to drop the Mets, right? I didn't play like Marsha did. Now, I'm not going back off my confident my comment saying he's good for league because an entertainment aspect he is. And I would still want him on my team with. If he'd gotten suspended for this. I would have fucking lost my mind that that was come on those Nana suspension. I people who say dispension you hate marshawn. You hate the Bruins. You might be a Columbus fan that is not a suspension in the standing playoffs and the day. It becomes one is going to be a sad day in the NHL. Here's what I don't understand. How do you not find them? How do you not get a fine for that? Give them the maximum fine five thousand bucks, notice it spare change for them. It's not about the money. It's about setting the precedent that that's not cool. That's not going to be allowed because with no punishment with no suspension and no fine. It's like, okay. Well, if the refs look, and I can punch someone in the back of the I want. The issue with the whole thing is that it was such a rat play because the guys want is fucking knees. And you know, what if he wasn't on his knees? And he and and the other thing I want to say is if you just stayed there after and he stands up and says all right want to do some skating away was the was the weasel use is that a word. It was the worst part about it was the punch, and he's on his knees and skate and away Nana suspension, but should have been a fine and just a wrap move marchant a rat. This is exactly what he does. I he he cannot help himself. We've said it before we're also going to say that. You can argue he's the best left wing and hockey if he was a part of the three finals for the Hart trophy. No one would have said a word. He's that good. He said that could've season. He's also doesn't have a point four straight games that hasn't happened this year. So what do you think he's doing? He's pissed off. He's fucking rattled. And he's when he when he gets like that he does dirty shit. That's who he is. And I'll tell you right now every gun the Brune still loves them and loves him as a teammate and Bruins fans. I've heard a lot of Bruins fans. I do respect saying it was a scumbag move, but they still love him. And that's and he knows it. He doesn't care. He's built he's built to play a game in the NHL where he does not mind one bit. If you hate his guts, he probably and this is a complete guest. This is me just making a wild stab at the fact that he's not scoring. He could have been like fuck it. I'm gonna just do something a little rat. Maybe that'll get me going everyone. Everyone will hate me. Even more self motivated, tell people that's how people think go ahead. It will. Taking Columbus maybe out of their rhythm that they have going on right now. We're maybe they looked to retaliate towards them. One of the comments. You made is is you think they should find them for the punch whereas to kind of set the example, like, hey, you just can't go do that. Whereas I was okay with them. Not suspend are. Sorry finding him when he stepped on the guy stick. But are would you not say, maybe if they would find him in that case, then it would lead to him kind of guiding getting that slap on the wrist where maybe he wouldn't have approached the guy in the back of the head because it was I mean, what was it the game before? Or maybe it was I think it was the game before we stepped on Calvert stick. That was game on either way. It doesn't matter that that's that's enough. That's just it's such a rat moved. He's a little fucking rat. And I don't know if that would have been worthy of anything stepping on a guy stick. That's that's why I was I was a little surprised that he at least get a phone call or a fine. And also why surprised you didn't get a game. Because now you're setting the precedent in today's NHL where do like it wasn't like they were in a scrum, and he gave them a little pop. This guy was on his knees was facing away. And we're talking about like he gave his fuck and had a pretty good jolt there like it was a nice little job and y'all Janice. Jenner kinda saw at the end and someone Jenner would have lost his mind. Well, another thing too is is I don't know if earlier later in that game where he got his stick high on generous. Well, where he kind of gave him a little crosscheck to the face. That's funny because everyone's giving me shit. Saying he wouldn't get suspended for the punch. But I said if we're going to suspend them for anything that game it would have been the crosscheck to the face right because he got the sticks up so high. Did you see bombies quote about it though on Twitter? He said he was smart. He gave him a shot not hot enough a suspension, but hoping they will try to get revenge planting the seed. Yeah, I mean, listen, you can look at it either way. And obviously Barnaby played that game to a t and that's probably bar to be bringing. You exactly what his mentality would have been. In that series at that point in time where the felt vulnerable, right? I wouldn't I wouldn't say really at any point in time in the Toronto series Boston felt vulnerable. Now. I mean, they lost game three the similar to this. But they didn't look as bad as they do. Now. They don't look good. And and and I know what you get into Columbus. They deserve a lot of them. But I was at game too. And I watched game three Pasha knock is is something's wrong. This is you do not play like this without injury. I'm just saying he's so good. I'm watching him play right now. Something isn't there? And he also he hurt his ankle as well a little bored collision and going back to that Tronto series. Bossom is very opportunistic on their power plays. They went seven for sixteen in the first round. Well, they're one for ten in this round so far and. We mentioned Brad Marchand having points. And they're big boys. Really not getting done credit Columbus for that as well. And we we also mentioned that the fact that maybe some of these guys might be a little banged up. It's been a long sees seasons along grind. And to me Columbus coming off that sweep and then now have getting the last two games in a row now being up to one with game four at home. I think the ball's in their court and Boston's on their heels right now, and I'm in a couple of different group chats with buddies around here that are huge Bruins fans, and they're like Bruins show. This is unacceptable. Getting out work out hustled can't score. What's up with Berge on guys? Sometimes injuries happen. And this they happen. Shitty. Times for teams. The Bruins main players aren't healthy. I'm not saying marchant marchant injured, but something is off with Berge, Ron and posh knock. And when you look at guys, and they're not playing the same way. They were all year. They didn't forget how to play hockey. Columbus doing a great job. But when you're injured, dude, there's only so much you can do and that's seven game series was complete battle. And then they hopped right into this series. Columbus had all the break. It made sense. The Bruins one game one still took him overtime now. Columbus gets rest. Now, we thought that the extra day off might really help the Bruins. It really didn't. You know? They didn't look any better. They didn't look any better at all. So this team is really good that they're playing against they do seem healthy. I know we're Renske might be battling something him and set Jones holy shit. What a team Columbus abroad. Sqi is the only goal out there playing right now. I think I could be wrong. Call me out if I am who has to trophies current players to trophies. He's in that form this guy is inconsistent. Sometimes and there's going to be worries for a team out there that gives him eighty million. There will be because there's times that he can shut it down. But when he's on holy shit. And right now is no different. He's feeling it. You've seen the pictures. He's loving playing there. They're having a blast. They're like the Beatles and Columbus right now, the place is going crazy. It's great to see. But this team is good. And compare that to an injured of banged up. Brune steamed only a of team their best players are banged up. And this is what happens. It's shitty. Lock for the Bruins and their fans, and they're not completely out of this because they did hit a bunch of posts. But game fours in a must win for the for the Bruins where it's talking is making up for lost time last Mustapa soda page out of panic. I tell you right now, I missed that sewed on my this ain't good. I need this need to talk on this podcast. Don't really need 'em. I do fuck off. I listened to that thing. You guys need me far. I'll tell you that I'll start my own you guys had a needle. But I almost felt bad for Bob bathtub because marchant punch and Harrington. The bag ahead overshadowed Brusque's outstanding performance so bad for. Listen RA might drop. Some Homer comments on. Yeah. But he's a fan. But the fact that he's saying this right now, I respect do a good job straddling online. I mean, I've been doing this for twelve years now with affiliated with Basel, and there are blogs. I don't really write blog much anymore. But I would be an obvious home. If I was complaining about the rest, but I always try to cut it down the middle. I know people on me, but part of mine he didn't get suspended but Brodsky nine four three save percentage. This series on the playoffs. Nine three seven with a one eight eight. I mean, he must have had six or seven ten bells. The other night. He's clearly the difference in this series right now. And then because the other side Toca if he ends up losing the series, the idiots in this time all Raschke, I got it again to plan out of his in my two two volt. Exactly. But you know, how the idiots and this fucking town gonna play it. But I don't know they're already getting on the big dogs. I've been well. There's there's another thing too. Is you have such a historic city as far as sports franchises concerned? You have a team that's had a very good successful season. You get out of the first round. And now you your mash. Up against a very good Columbus team hitting their strive. And we mentioned about the bees being a little bit banged up. Like, your your high end guys are battling through stuff and Bergereon is ultimate professional the ultimate leader. He ain't gonna say shit about being injured. None of them gonna rub. Some fucking deep cold on it take a couple Advil. And he's going to go out there and battle for your city. So if you're one of those types of people gets really critical, but the guys and everything they've done for you and the organization online, you need to shut the fuck up testing on it. It's just wild to hear like you watch this top line all year dominate the Colorado top line or the best two lines in the league all year. And now, they're not you think they're not trying. Yeah. Go compete harder body you've seen how good they are. You can tell they're not the same right now. Use your brain they're hurt. Yeah. I mean, they didn't forget how to play hockey figure it out. I think they got all Tony from Tewksbury. I got muscle the little odd game show. And I think David back into the lineup Thursday night. Tonight's game, by the way. Well by the time his drops might be too late nine hours. We're having I'll watch body tonight. Should be pretty pretty tonight. We'll see we'll see you tonight. Hopefully, of course, we gotta talk about Matt to Shane sharp bend over for this one. Or what I don't understand. You don't need it over though, he should clean his Hooper your tongue. He said in his post in one of his post game interviews that this is so great because some of the guys on the team aiming at himself have struggled in the playoffs before. So he he acknowledged to everyone that he's had playoff struggles. You acknowledged it. And you got Schiff for it all so you're saying that I could be logical and level headed in Sessa situation for what it was without having people. Come after me on Twitter. That's shocking. But no, I'm very happy form and back to back games. He ends up getting the OT winter. And or sorry the game winner, I should say. And this has been match Shane's coming out party, and he continues to roll very happy for him. He's such a good guy. And then there was a clip of him on any channel or maybe he posted to his own Instagram. He's fucked the guitar out. Again, get it again again singing to his newborn baby voice of an angel. A while tweet that I thought was awesome. It was video of a little kid in Duchenne jersey doing his celebration from the double OT win. It was puking. And he wrote like this is like one one of the I'm paraphrasing. This is one of the coolest things about playing in the NHL. This was me dreaming of being a player I loved and now somebody's like that's I don't think people understand like how incredible it is to see a little kid with your jersey on because you you think back to being seven eight ten years old and having your favorite player. And it's like, dude, I'm there. Now, it's a full blown dream come true and happy for him. And obviously with me being a little bit critical. People just assume that I don't like the guy. He's an unbelievable person very kind very sensitive and a great example of a player who's at the top of his game. Who shows a lot of class, and you know, basically, the complete opposite of me guys. What what do you think he's gonna get this summer? I mean, you're talking about the other guys get Tyson Barry's getting ten getting thirteen. Duchenne icy somewhere out there seven years if he's not going back to Columbus. Which by the way, I wouldn't I don't think Pinera obscure back. I wouldn't be shocked. Yeah. Shane goes back there. Look like how fun it is right now. But let's take away the years because it could be eight in Colorado. I mean, sorry Columbus seven years averages. Oh to the ten year nine five year. I think he'll get in that range. He will. He goes to open market. I mean, I am nine. Yeah. Let's let's say let's say AB ends up being nine. How I m as much as you want fucking kidding me. Imagine it's two weeks while his two weeks you'll be about six hundred every two weeks six seventy five or two weeks. That's what they call getting paid. When Keith ca Chuck was playing with the Phoenix coyotes chained almost telling me every two weeks paycheck would be half a million dollars. I mean, I think I was I yeah. I mean, I think if you're making ten or eleven it's over that every two weeks Duchenne le-, let me just go by four hundred thousand dollar car cause I'm getting another one of these in two weeks. Duchenne Paronen Borowski. They're all going to get gigantic fuck Andrews. I mean, they're all playing fantastic. Should we mention Boone Jenner as well? He's been outstanding. What a playoff type guy. They got a lot of him and dander Sanat Felino guys. It just live for the playoffs. He drew that penalty that ended up leading to the game winner when Duchenne scored on power play. So I mean, he's just been doing a bad penalty. Berge onto sure. Offense own making the last that I wanted to talk to you about everyone. Columbus is the fact that March twenty first they lost to the Edmonton Oilers four one they had a big meeting. They figured this isn't good enough. We're fucking gonna miss the playoffs. They went out and they waxed Vancouver the next night. And you know, what they've done since then they've gone thirteen and two and their only two losses to the Bruins in the regular season into the Bruins in game one. And during that span their power plays at twenty eight percent PK's at ninety two percent while we're talking about a team that is playing as good if not better than anyone in the league. And we'll see how bossing and kind of get game. Foregone? I set it coming in after washing them sweep the first round against half. I said this lag. This is LA kings of when they beat the presidents trophy winner. Vancouver Canucks in five games. And everyone was like oh my God. These guys have hit stride during a well oiled machine. Everything is going, right. And they're getting quick like performance in that by Iran. They got a city phone in love with. They got a city that's going banana, Lance before we go any farther. I wanna talk to you about body. Armor body armor is now the official sports drink of the NCWA and the frozen four tournament that happened in buffalo. It means body armor sports, drink was hydrating the next generation of league hockey players as they faced off and determined who was national champions. Unlike some other outdated, sports drinks, we see you. Gatorade body. Armor contains natural flavors and sweeteners and potato potassium packed electrolytes body. Armor is the more natural better sports drink, so don't be a pigeon head out to the local retailers today and grab a body armor west I gained three between San Jose. And Colorado in Denver Tuesday, Logan, couture scored his first playoff hatrick shacks to afford to win to take two one series lead. We've talked about how he just raises his game. When the stakes are high and he's done. It again is three goals put them in the postseason lead with nine goals. The next guy down the list only has six and his twelve point seven tied for the playoff lead with slave. And McKinnon and Mike stone is obviously not playing. Anymore? San jose. As four of the top nine point get in the playoffs right now. Choi burns Carlson and hurdle. And hey, Martin Jones. I mean, I've picked on them a little bit on the show is numbers weren't good. But we gotta give credit where it's due. He's turned his game around. He's been absolutely phenomenal playoff numbs. Don't look good. But his last three or four games. He's been outstanding. He's definitely recaptured that form that led the San Jose to cover and a few years back. So what do you got on this dog? Logan could share? Sass water complete gamer what a gamer and the fact that before game three he said to the media in the locker room, they said this on the broadcast. I gotta be better job Belskis out. I looked to myself to have to try to lead this team. I got better gets a fucking hat trick kidding me. You're you're you're cool enough where you get to say you have to be better. And that night, you get the hatrick not even like a couple of games later. You do it the day. You said I have to be better. So watching him is incredible. And he doesn't blow you away with the fastest player. Doesn't have the hardest shot, but he does have is a stupid high hockey IQ. And it's crazy how he thinks the game even Calma car my saints name, right? I'm getting it and Calma car he can skate like the wind the other night. He kind of hounded him down stripped him of the puck along the wall guy, little mini breakway. Forget who it was might have been heard either way. It's just like defensively he does stuff while also being able to score and getting into position to score so often that you understand why? I mean, this guy led the playoffs and. Scoring when they went to the Cup. Final loss to Pittsburgh right now. He's doing the same exact thing. His plays. Awesome. They're missing pa- Veliky, which is a huge loss but him hurdle and team Almir guys that are stepping up and looking awesome. So I think this series is far from done. But right now, you gotta look at San Jose, even with an enormous loss of paths. Little Joe looking at them as like man came call kind of compete with them when they're on. It's really hard to deal with hurdles been a beast the entire series and team will Meyer who leads the playoffs right now in five on five scoring chances. That's a law. I mean, that's a pretty ballsy spat and five on five you got to be good in this league, especially come playoff time. So they look great. And those guys are the main reason to me, I loved San Jose's depth front coming on this. Go back to Logan chirp for a second nine goals and ten games. He's second with the most postseason goal since two thousand ten Alexander. Ovechkin has fifty Logan. Cheers and second with forty three. Now, I would say that I want to say I touched on this last episode. He is probably one of the top five top ten for sure playoff performers that are still playing in the league to this day. And you mentioned that he he's not the fastest guy. He's not the most skilled his motor is to me. What's the most impressive? If he's never given up on plays. You know, he's always making the right play at the right time. He's he's he's a kind of a Honey badger in the sense and another thing too. He doesn't waste any type of energy chirping. He plays between the whistles when the puck drops. He's ready to go. And you mentioned that play when Calma car broke away from behind the net didn't give up on it on his ass. And it's so annoying planning. It's so annoying. Fuck it's like fuck this guy, and he just keeps putting his head down going to work and very impressive from the minute. You know, he got the boys rallied in game seven. Vegas. After scoring the first goal not five on four five minute. Power play. You tell he's on a mission. And he took that one person because his boy paths went down, and it's very inspirational watch past could return this series as well. They mentioned that last night. I thought the they showed some hot bat on back and being down to not them. But could you thirty five seconds at eight sided he gave him the dagger. And of course, you got the empty netter Nate McKinnon, he still unbelievable. He played almost twenty five minutes. The snapshot off the rush when he's coming down. It's sack now is actually off one foot bar down the noises. These shots are making. It's the coolest part. Place goes wild. Like, I couldn't do that. If I stood there were twenty bucks, not skating tried to hit the crossbar to make that noise, and he's just flick of the wrist bar down. But I mean, they need more from other guys in Colorado can't rely every single night on him in Renton. Is it me or have the seemingly been like ninety and posts in every game every night? I mean, I know obviously. A lot more than we used to. I don't know specifically in that call Rodham San Jose, Boston. Yeah. And even islanders Carolina hit like seven post. I couldn't watch that. When I was flying first class here to Boston. Series. Colorado's gotta get gotta get gained four. I mean, that's enormous tonight. So two teams that really have to win tonight in games that that mean a lot. But when when San Jose's four units are going along with burns the way he's played and Carlson Carlson books Carlson looks like Erik Carlson right now. And you know, you said our Martin Jones we were all over them. Good for him pretty story to be. I mean, the guy was lost. It was like a pitcher who couldn't hit the plate who throw a strike. And now he's fucking fired him BB on the black. So it's pretty cool and tough loss for Colorado. We gotta give a couple of stick taps to Calvert. Because at the end of game too when Colorado ended up scoring on that empty net which ended up being the game winner because. Which fucking are eight for the puck line. But Calvert at the blue line and young kids listening. I know we told you played to the end of the whistle regarding the off side and the Columbus series and game one. But he's just inside his own defensive blue line. He takes a monster hit from Brent burns or to make that play to get it out. So they go down and get that goal. And he ended up he was out injury and game three because of that hit hit. It was a of Brent burns. Just crippled him. But just an awesome play for him to stand in there and get it done. And as I mentioned ended up being the game winner. So stick taps to Calvert. And before we move on Colorado. If you're a fan of Colorado for tonight, you just gotta stop turning it over there was so many sloppy turnovers. One of them led to the Meyer goal, which is an awesome rush. But he did you know he picked off a pass. So you gotta just not be as sloppy on home ice. And I don't think it's crazy to think that they could tie it up. But if you're turning over pox to team like San Jose. Just close to impossible to win you're gonna pay for and also they still life from slasher. They gotta work now. Power play, reg. They oh four last game. They had the six on full late in the game before the playoffs about Nashville. It's you don't win the Cup too. Good powerplay. It's so hard to score five on five that if you don't have success. And if you're at least not building momentum, you're done. Yep. The last series going to talk about and the always pivotal game put down and big d Wednesday night stars coach Jim Montgomery flipped his centers around wanted to shake things up. He got the desired results as a stars beat the blues fortitude even that series, and now it's a best of three Dickinson sig zuccarello Todd tallied five points for plus three Sagan's zuccarello, Ben Roger all of nine points in the playoffs. They get balanced scorn. But the big play in this game was Esselin del doing the triple Indian the corner half the battling puts but Souso he gets called for the dive Tuesday for the slash. But the whole hockey world was all over. Hockey comical have this. Well that was a game three. Okay. Right. I'm sorry. I thought my notes up. That's fine mowers. So let's go back to game three variant tents game. Of course, the topic of conversation was virtues. Oh, and Lindell Lindell went down three times, first of all I thought it was hilarious because it wasn't me crosschecking them, and I have no skin in that series. So it was kind of funny because he gets to go on Twitter and just read all the people. And then all of a sudden Amine start flying everywhere thought, it was Lou Gary very interesting how sometimes the hockey gods just loved to show up and then sure shit on that game winter Patty, maroon scored he gave Lindell little shove in the back now. Hey, you try to make a fool the referees out there young kids, you know, sometimes they might see the next one and say fuck, you you dove in the last year, you fucker, I call and shit. You fucking stand up on those who cried cannonball. So Patti maroon gets away with a little bit of a push off. And then goes off to the side of the net. Nice little play to him. He goes back into forehand rate fuck in the net and that being the game winner. So that was a huge swing a momentum. Of course, they get to steal one in Dallas. And now they're playing with the houses money because even if they lose game for they get to go home tied to two. So I thought that was very interesting. I believe at the start of game three as well. Dallas Stars fan Chuck's of beer at the Saint Louis bench. It's chaos down there pandemonium. I don't know. If you saw that RA. I I saw the clip I online I wasn't sure what the whole story was like such an asshole thing to do fuck and like throw a full beer at a fucking. Why when you drink it? I don't know I've been listening. I'm not putting all you Dallas Stars fans in a group. But I've been seeing a lot of cesspool Twitter action from some Dallas Stars fan especially in game four regarding the defending Ben Bishop for the what I thought was listen, he got he got slashed rate in the back area. There wasn't crazy hard should've been a penalty. Yes. Of course. But I mean, he flopped a little bit like let's not fucking deny that because if another team's goalie who flopped like that you'd be calling a flopper. So like, let's just not be biased. Let's take it for what it is. And give me a logical breakdown. So they're all online Kaz Riggs Riggs the Gulf guy from barstool for those. Calls them a bozo. His name. Okay. Bozo. He he he mentioned the flop and a bunch of Dallas people like all when when people get high stick. They always go down and shed their gloves and stick, and it's like we have it wasn't high. Stick the face you fucking moron. Yeah. When you when you get slash in the back and goes don't have a lot of padding their shirt might hurt. That's not what what happens. I mean. If that happened to in practice that he would not have no shot pocket teammate in line. But. Than the Lindell thing quick, I was I was horizontal and bed too. I dive I like sat up a little. The second one. I like jumped on a bed and the third I collapsed. It was like all of my guy. Whereas my phone whole we shit, and you know flipping out. He's like, you know, you know, you know, you know, you know, you know, you know. I was just amusing my mind Lindell because right away Alexander Steen who if you're talking about respected players in the NHL. He's top of the list every guy in the league respects Algan went up to him. And you could tell I don't know what he's saying. You fucking kidding me you finish fucking diver. So it was a tough look and two for karma to come back and get him biz. I'm glad you brought that up the hockey gods. Never forget, they do not. They do not ever forget and with with Bishop and the and the other and the other act, right? They're definitely got a call penalty. That's the only thing I didn't understand the refuse sitting right there and didn't call penalty like Peron legit. He I don't know if Peron wanted to look like he was trying to like slashes stick those a blatant slash to the back of goalie. So an embarrassment for sure, but a no call there was wild lecherous pretty good chain of events as well because then Jamie, Ben gave Bennington a little bit of a love tap. I mean, it was a love tap Bennington. Came up. On. Chinamasa. Jody jamie. Benn naturally, biz bended and go down. Any any entity? Those of you listening Jamie bed made comments or there's a rumor that he doesn't like eating pussies. So that was our chiming in with Ben doesn't like to go down when you texted the group that I thought you meant because he's like a tough bastard. He is he is he is too. So he's got he's got both things going for him doesn't like pussy though. But then I well then benefits, and you know, he he got a rough in mind if a hidden Ben, but did you see clip him skate off the ice? He slashed Bishop fucking when he was going off the ice. You've got another two minutes for that. There is a little something going on between Bishop and one of the Saint Louis players. It's a really tough video. I think somebody filmed it with a big potato. But Bishop kind of did the turn around and kept talking to them, and then eventually made the full turn. And then as Bishop was going in the door a little bit being ten Bennington came by game a little wack, which if you guys don't know Bennington has a little bit of a history of his wires crossing. He's a gamer, and hey, I love it. I think it's both teams just just sticking up for one another. And this is what playoff hockey become stay showed Bennington in a brawl with the Texas stars when he was on San Antonio. And you could tell there was also another clip of him fighting when he was on the providence Bruins. So he has no problem getting involved in the physical stuff, and certainly you could tell by him going after Ben that he was just furious. How that game was going for those non hardcore hockey fans when a goalie and another player on the team gets involved. Some goalies are kind of like there's a goalie between goalie feud leave my fucking guys alone. If there's an issue between you and him, I'm the other. Goalie. Also, it just kind of like when there's a strong down at the other end use your goalie like Marc Andre Fleury. Did it earlier this year where he skated out Calgary Calgary? And he was like, let's Faulk and go get you block one of my guys gonna stick up for my. That's what if there's a scrum. Let the players figure it out. Don't do anything goalie or coming down. That's kind of what we're also in that series. Roope hintz. So people who don't know Rupa hint as a rookie this year with the Dow stars and he's a player and whoever's doing the scouting over in Finland. Hey skin, wasn't that hard to find? Right. I mean, that's that's a very high pick that would have taken but Rupa Hinton Esselin Dell are Finnish guys. So they know what they're doing in terms of bringing these people over and Dallas needed to make switch for game four. They looked at listen we lost game three at home kind. Not a must win. But you're looking at it. We can't we can't lose both at home. And they broke up the big guns of Radulovic, Ben and Sagan, and they put Hinton between Radulovich Ben, and they put zuccarello with Sagan and Dickinson and it worked wonders Dickinson. Scored a big goal Rupa hints had a big goal on an awesome three onto. I think it was ratchet up to Ben who then gave hints sick pass through the seam. So I like breaking those guys up because when they're not scoring and zuccarello allows them to do that and hints is development and taking that next step allows them to do that because they have guys who can play top offense of roles. Besides those three now Patrick sharp made some good comments on NBC talking about looking like obsolete, man missile. We have we ever mentioned him in the man rocket category. He's got to be talked to him on. When I did that chiklis thing that night, the Vegas got FOX. I was I kept looking at them. I'm like, what are you doing not in Hollywood sharpie? He wrote me a message. Thanks for the tire pumps. But I'm like, I'm not even really pumping. You're hire them just hard. I wanna lick your nuts. Anyway, nobody talked about in. This is a guy with credibility got Stanley Cups. And he was one of those top and players where you said sometimes the top line. You get a little bit complacent. You're playing with the big boys where all of a sudden, you break them up and you're trying to impress your new linemates? And that's exactly what they did. And it worked out for him. And it was an interesting comment that that's maybe an element that I wouldn't have known because that never had to happen to me. I was more of the anchor where I was being somebody being forced play with me. A couple of other things. Yeah. Hey skin in that pass to tie the other night? And then of course, the shorthanded goal by cog leanna. Man. I was really surprised that Bishop didn't come out and play that. I'm sorry. Not bishop. It was Bennington didn't come out and play that puck. And I know a lot of people say like it depends really on the goalie in it ended up being kind of far away from the net. But right when you see a pocket by defense minute top. It was done up top running the point on the umbrella. If a puck it's by him, you almost no it's going to be a two on one most of the time. And that that way you could tell and Cox did his thing, man. One of the best skaters the league still should have the iron man streak fucking that suspension. I love cogs one of the funny. If people ever asked me who's the funniest guy in the league that I would knows funny. Andrew call auto doesn't credible imitations teammates, love them. And so to see him score that big oil wasn't a surprise. And it was enormous in game three even though they ended up losing that one Kagler on another guy off the ice. Just very dedicated to the game big on supplements are big time on on his gym time. And ph and his water all just to alternate professional in a great guy to have around so happy for him to get it going -fensive Lii, and I think that pretty much route I should go to Pang or now because he talks a lot about the blues color guy.

It's been very friendly for me to meet from the time we met when I was playing in the league. And I know you're a golf nut just like me. And if you're not falling around the Saint blues one of the best stories of the NHL season. You're either fallen them around here on the golf course. So I want to say thanks for joining it goes far gas. Finally, it is my pleasure to be a part of this one and only famous award winning show heard lots about it. I mean, listen I been around so long. I never thought I was going to get the call though, I'm really I'm really thrilled to be beyond today. Because a lot of my buddies that aren't real NHL guys a lot of friends lot of hockey friends sons, they're all big fans spending checklists, and they always let me know what's going on who are the gas. What's being said? And so I'm I'm thrilled to be here. Thanks. What are just I think widow went and took a Pissy completely cut you off. Pretty much the lights on here the fellas. So all right. I wanna talk first and foremost, vogue immature and some funny questions. I have you you've been around this team all year and water story. It's banned January third. I believe our ages told me was the day that they were sitting last place in the God, damn NHL and you've seen this turn around. And right now, they're leading their second round series to two one fantastical tending talk to me about what it's been like just be around that team and kind of seeing what's changed mid-season. And I don't remember seeing anything like I know it's maybe happened before. But it's wild. I thought when you came to camp as a as a walk on you and business easy life thought that certainly I would finally get my chance to be a Stanley Cup broadcaster for local team. But obviously that didn't happen. So now things changed and I end up watching the group this year, and you guys you guys both had good camps, by the way. But both you guys deserved a better fate. I talked army about that later. But sorry about that. But anyway, this season did go. The beginnings were incredibly high in terms of expectation. I mean, everybody around the league thought, you added a Riley. You added Bosak you have the same current guys? You have a great group of the what's what's to go wrong. So it was really disappointed the beginning. And there's not a person they lose the wooden say the same. But there was always something special about this group. They went on the road and they won in Winnipeg. They one in Colorado they're going to Tampa Bay. And they'd when they want against all the best teams on the road and between the benches a lot. And you guys know what it's like being on the bench when the team doesn't care about one another or the team, you know, that they're checked out or you know, that they're all in and it's just not going, really? Well, there was a lot of times that they were so into it and they went on the road. And I was so pumped up for them. I'm thinking this team is going to be really good. And then they go home, and for whatever reason expectations crowd, maybe some bad balls against maybe some bad time. They had. No confidence. And it was quiet and guys were coming in Patrick lining. Five goals? Elise. Pederson five points Brock best route three goals, then it was painful to see how they were performing at home, and I felt bad for them. But then they go back on the road. And they'd be another great team. So I'm thinking to myself got something good here. It's just gotta come out on a regular basis. And I gotta tell you boys, and it's been a fun ride. It's been four months of watching the same hockey night in night out. And this is what the game's all about guys caring for one another. They go out. They like each other. You know, they they have good dinners together, they play cards on the plane together, they play golf together whenever they can they like each other. And that's why this team is doing really well. Well, if biz and I had made that team it, really. Because it happened before it's called major league. It was in baseball. It's a movie so that would have been a complete. They were away better team than have mean him around speak through. I know really business was good. This is good on the left wing. You were you had a rough time, but business really good pinger. Do people blow the two-zone Stafford turnaround fight a little out of proportion, or do you think that that was a moment where maybe these guys were so fed up all the pressure and all the expectations where they were just like fuck it. Let's let's let's gel more together. Because sometimes after scraps and practice that happens. You don't I mean that fan a good kid? You guys probably seen him around. He's a good player. A good kid. What happened on that day? Was he found out that morning with meetings with the coach that that he was going to be a healthy scratch. They started a drill. I was right behind him in the stand like everybody that the mills which is the practice facility and. And I'm we're watching and the drills are getting a little bit more inten- three on three down low four unforced down low five on five down low cross-checking slash in. Here we go. And here we go. And and basically Sanford, Sanford gotta stick up high and actually smoker Robert Susil, I mean, him high and hard and people didn't see that in a video, but all of a sudden bortz helmet and visor was back in the back of his head and he'd had enough and he snapped. And what what happened after that was quiet. You know, what no one was real proud of it. And you guys have been down this road before. But there they were in barest. I mean, the whole team had looked selves in the mirror into. This isn't good enough pressure was on there at home, and then they had a hard drill. And you know, Craig baruti's, he's the guy that looks in the ci- I want this to be more aggressive and Robert Souso, by the way on a new three year deal after that. And I tell you what Sanford he was a regular so everybody kind of one on that. And the team really. Did respond is it overblown? You know, what I don't think? It's overblown. I think it's part of hockey and come together as a team. And I think it was a necessary ingredient for this team to get together. Love it. What specific change or changes the blues make that allow them to turn the season around in such a stunning batch. Was it like a specific Ross the move, maybe Bennington was closed meeting that got people's attention. What allow them to out such a turnaround judge. So Layton sees yeah. There's a couple of things I think one of the things that happened was they were on a western swing just before Christmas. And you know, what I'm not sure how the meeting went. But, but I did find out that that Doug Armstrong, you know, had to get together with these guys. I mean, he was either going to blow this thing up. You know, start making deals and prominent players. I mean, obviously teams are on the show were there were sniffing in the weeds here they're looking at good players here. Who can we get from the Saint Louis blues with all the expectations so high? So as gonna you're gonna tear it apart or was gonna say today's guys, you know, what I'm going to double down on you guys and the year before that he didn't double down on them because he didn't like they lost about seven or eight like games that they just weren't together. And he says, what am I going to double down on new guys right now, and and he ended up trading staffing and he ended up getting some assets. And what have you and they did make the playoffs? But this time around he put this team together. And he said the right things to them. He said, listen, I it's not like I'm gonna give you forever. But there's probably a period of time here. I gotta figure out whether you guys care about each other or you're going to look around and some of your buddies are not going to be here and look around, and that's. Great thing to say to anybody because if you care about your teammates, and you don't want them gone, and and they had the makings of a good team. So I think by number one army doubling down obviously the coaching change. Mike ios, a really good coach, but Craig ruby can handle personalities and big way because the way deals with things just black and white no gray area. And the other thing was you're right early January Jordan in Incan can comes in any shutout Philadelphia. And then he continues on his role. They started playing really really well. And they started back checking like they cared about each other. They started. Honestly, they started playing from the front of their sweaters instead of the back, maybe over Jews. But I think in this situation. It is very accurate. They check the regals finally at the door and said, okay. What are we have to do to be again and be winners? And that's what they did. And all of that came together. And but I do believe it started with army saying what he said to some of these players or the whole group. I'm not sure if the whole group or some of the players, but I do know that double down on the group. You've been around the organization for a while you with the death of the organization the minor leagues. Did you know that Jordan Bentinck was gonna be this good at the H L level? Well, no, I mean, I think that'd be crazy statement. I think I would be I would be a really good executive in the league working for somebody. If I knew that. But I do pay off course, not even working Tang. I'd be selling Mira gull clubs somewhere. You know, getting four percent back. I do believe after watching them. I went back to my my training camp notes and not this past training camp. But the before, and I and I said, I said boy Bennington improved seems to be more competitive. You know, but it was his fourth year third year. Pro I said, he's he's me really taken some steps here. But at that same time a prospect named Billy who so was on board and Billy had come over from Finland and he was a high third round pick. But a different goalie Bennington a little bit thicker, a little bit more common the net Bennington as you guys know what he's very thin by didn't biz. I didn't both you guys you were at camp. You wouldn't like he he was so skinny it was hard to seriously. Take them NHL goal tender. All that being said now skillman campus, he was he was I said at one point I said, he's like a like a model from the like from Prague or something like just look so skinny this guy. And and I and I remember saying to him like how many games do you play lots or anything like five six like he can play the games. And sometimes that's overblown like how skinny guy is. Or for me? I mean, I remember how obviously the first time that the Blackhawks on me at training camp. Our coach was click. Coral is wife saw me Linh as her name. She saw me getting off the team bus. And she asked me she clip her husband that that that stick? Boy. He sure is cute little fellow. He says, well, I got good news and bad news. Like he's my goal. And man, so I get what I impress. Our and my purse impression of Jordan was boy, I'm not sure if he's got this stamina to be able to be NHL goalie. Well. I saw him this year in training camp. And he was away different goalie, and the first thing I said was I don't know what you've done with your hands. But during a better position, and he goes, I change my hands. I did it last year. He was in providence. And I'm like, I love him. Love your hands are and his angles always been good. It's fundamentally have always been good. But I think he'd tried to become a blocker. Like all the big goalies, you know, tuck the arms into the side lean into shot, reverse VH, all that methodical stuff. It doesn't work for goalie inside. And now he's like what he did last year with providence was fantastic. And then he came to training camp. And I thought he was excellent training camp. A really really good. But again, the goalie the futures Billy who so so everybody's really paying attention to him. So it was a shame for Jordan. But I give a lot of credit for having you know, what the self motivation and the belief and the or teen layers of skin that he's grown over the years, or you know, what I'm really good. I'm really good. And I'm gonna shut the door behind me. And that's exactly what he's done. He's take. A great opportunity and he's running with and I love it. It seems like the phase developed a most is between his ears because I mean, you know, when he got asked are you nervous? And he looked ready to report was my look nervous. You know, when you can sense of someone's full of shit or not if they actually are a little bit. He didn't have a care in the world, and sometimes spending that much time in the minors allows you to grow that that mental state where all of a sudden now you finally get called up at your shot where he's like I got nothing to lose. Man. I've been down the miners for three or four years. There's another guy was probably take my job fucking bring a baby. Yeah. By dear in two hundred one game at one point to you perspective at one point. And I talked to Yanni Gord who decide what a five year five million dollar deal with the Tampa Bay Lightning like early in the year. Is that good? I could Yanni do you know, anybody that yet it fairly good? What types of national TV and Phoenix. And anyway, I say. I still I said, did you know, anybody on on the blue team? And he was all. Yeah. I was teammates with Jordan Bennington. I said George Benny can like wear you played in the Quebec league. He played me on terrier -ly, you're in different organizations. He goes. Yeah. We were both in Kalamazoo together for the k wings in the east coast Hockey League for about forty games by said like, that's unbelievable. And look where they both are right now both guy grinding it out trying to be NHL players. And I mean just fascinating that that's why call it three four layers of skin two hundred one minor league games. You know, getting shoved around at one point the blue said, we want to go to these coast finally said, I'm not going all I'm going home until you find me a place, and and as it turns out is really good friend, Malcolm sue ban early last year got picked up on waivers by bega that opened up a door with providence who needed a goalie the blues had an extra goalie that was a good American League goal. Early in Jordan, Bennington, Daytona them on there. And I give providence a lot of credit. They played a goalie that wasn't even in their system became an all star. Right. He was an all star. And so then then game competence and look REEs right now round not a lot of people probably know this story. It's very interesting ask you about that and get a little bit more in depth with you have a follow up on Bennington. No, no. I mean, that's actually I known a little of that. But no, I do not go another guy. I want to ask you about who's probably been through a mental grind is Fabri. And when me and went went to training camp. I actually talked about him last podcast. But he, but he was like he was like a little Johnny Jura out. They're all going to be. Member. It was crazy. I think he's he's a phenomenal kid. I, you know, the older we get and the more like my kids are his age. I have to my kids are older than his kids. And and I love being in a position of being team broadcaster per lot of reasons. But I I like it when you get to really know a person, you get to know their personalities, but more than anything else, you got to know when they're down, and when they don't have any confidence, and they can say something to a little maybe you can, you know, reiterate, you know, how good they are whatever it might be. And this kid who's got such team when the games on the line. I'll tell any scope that tell ask me a question anybody that wants to talk about Robby Fabbri all say, I'll tell you. What I here's the analytics, I know when the games hot and on the line, he's he wants the ball. So what else do want like that's him all the way. So when you watch Blue's game, and and they're down by one. And there's four minutes to go. Oh, he's not dumping it in his making a plate. And hold onto the puck is giving it everything. He's got he's really competitive. And he's not the biggest guy, but he's one hundred ninety pounds is become a man now, and he's working his tail off after as C L reconstructive surgeries. But more than anything else. I gotta tell you you just got game. And and the other thing with is learning to play a little bit of Gaul, and I had a chance to play some golf with them a little while ago. When the weather was good here. And the the kid got he's got he's got a good move to he's going to be a good golfer. So that's even just as important as his game on the on the rink, of course. Yeah. I know. I just we were so happy to see him back, and it was just tough two years. So he's just we just it was cool for us to get to know him. And then to see them go through that it was tough. So I'm just happy for him now. And we knew that your your buddies with them there. I'm also curious when I when I watched the blues it's like it's every night. It's the same exact thing. They just know exactly what it takes to win. And it's almost like ruby. He demands I don't wanna see demand respect. But they all love them. They love playing for them. And so whenever he saying to them they're buying in every night. It's so consistent. And I just wonder like being around him every day. Do you notice that in practice and stuff they do in the same type drills? Is it like that methodical because it right now, it's like a machine you just know they never really have off nights. No, I added I a coach, and you guys know him. Well, Darryl Sutter was a when I was growing up with the Blackhawks organization, he was the captain, and then he retired. And he was my system coach Mike first year in the NHL. And then as years went on I actually got sent down because I tore my ACL, and I went down to Indianapolis and bureau Sutter was my coach, and we wanna championship there. With a great group of guys, by the way, Bruce Cassidy on my team who's coaching right now. And we lot of really good players on that team. And and the one thing I've noticed is that Craig ruby who's a good friend of Daryl's. And God a lotta of in them. He's you know, if you look at the the the warm up the morning scape. The so the morning skate. What he does, you know, everybody's stretching at the very end of it. He goes around taps them all on the. But as a couple of words to them, you know, I can pitch them in the locker room kind of leaning over to them and saying we need you. You know, we we need a lot more. From your we need this from you. And that's a little bit of Daryl. I think he's got you know, he learned a little bit from hitch because he had him as a young kid. And then when he was in Billy together, I know they talk because in the minors. So there's a, you know, a little bit of that tactical stuff as well from from hitch, which you need to have. But I think he's got his own personality. I think he's got I think he's got the ability to patch on the back patch on the shoulder and kick in the balls. And and you know, like we patch on the back when you don't have competence, and it kicks in the balls when you've got too much and says, hey, let's go we need a little more from you. And I I love that from. And I think he's done a great job of that. With the blues. He's instilled confidence. They didn't have early on for whatever reason they didn't have confidence which I find are to believe, but they didn't. And he found the right way to do it and stay to them and build them up and make them accountable, and he has fun to coach he loves talking hockey guys. You could call them anytime of the day. I call him anytime that I'm telling you the answer. The phone and he just wants to talk about hockey. And you gotta love that part of of them. He doesn't have a whole bunch of saying he doesn't, you know, there's no ba- ruby issue. Nary to them. It's just him. He's just a hockey guy. And he wants to win a championship here at the NHL level. We wants to Stanley Cup. That's all he wants to do. Panga given the regular season success of the island is into canes using two goals, and you add in the league's copycat tendencies. Are we going to start seeing teams may be using more Tim situations? Or did we get a pair of this? You know, I think we had that a little bit of time. I think we're we're quickly finding out that you you can't just have one guy playing seventy five games anymore. It won't happen. They're not brushing off. And and you know, I think the other part is to like there's a lot of practice time. So it is hard for the second guy to stay sharp like the practices now guys. And visit you in wit you guys. See it's I'd love to play nowadays. It's a it's a it's optional. And then an optional. And then it's an option then you travel like there's and then there's a bunch of pre flowing European style drills nothing game related, and that's why you're seeing so many to on ones that are misplayed tree onto that are misplayed. I I mean, I just believe that it's a free flowing, you know, NHL so there's mistakes are going to happen. But it's hard to be that other goalie as well. So both guys got to stay sharp. They gotta play games. And I mean, it's rare listen you can have carry price and paying fifteen million dollars a year if you can find that in your in your in your in your cap, but look at the Boston Bruins right now. I mean, you're hilarious. Nominal this year. They're paying good money to be a backup goalie, but you're in the year was the backup goalie not really they're both kind of one as or one one. I don't know what you call them both to to number one. And that's the way they balanced out. And that's why you've got to fresh is even Grassi didn't play all the games this year. He had some help along the way. So that he's a fresher guy right now in the playoffs. And for those listening who don't know paying had a professional career as a goaltender. There might be a few out there paying who didn't know that. I wanted to talk a little that's why we're asking you so many goalie questions, of course, we want to talk about your career little bit. I notice that you play for the Ottawa sixty seven's in the OH L and had famous probably the most famous junior coach of all time Brian Kilrea as head coach. The greatest of all time is no question. I always enjoy when somebody asks me my junior days because every time I see former Ottawa sixty seven or fellow team, for example, Bradshaw's great coach for Columbus. And Bruce Cassidy the great coach for you know, for the bought the Boston Bruins. And like Bryan kill rate was so good. He had so many good saying he would say stuff to me in between period. That if it were said now, and it got out there, you you like you couldn't believe someone like, for example, a few like that. Let's let's hear example. Yeah. Well, I or I can go with it. But there was there's a number of different things we were playing a game in in in the su-. It was my final year the year we won the memorial Cup. And I was celebrate my guess it would have been my nineteenth birthday would have turned twenty late February. This might have been turned twenty when it was my third year major junior. A and we're out in sub. Agree. And I got a couple of buddies Darcy. Roy Brad, Sean casting all the guys we're we're having a good old time. Having a birthday we had a couple of days off between Sudbury and suze Marie. And we decided to go out and just we got we got a little ripped up, and it was a real fun night. I guess I I guess my hotel room, it's probably a motel six or something like that. And it didn't go very well. And I guess the made in manager told killer what happened and our room was a bit of a disaster. And anyway, I played the next next night. We're in the su-, and I give up three bad ones in the first period. And there's this huge pox their way up there. And I'm not sure if they're still that I was nineteen eighty four. So huge pucks up there that are on display the Sumer greyhounds. He comes into the room and always says to me is happy fucking birthday. These Pang happy fucking birthday. And he said new couldn't stop those three pucks were up there, you know. And he went on and on and on. And all the boys are looking at me. And you know, it was just one of those team moments where everybody loved it and killer was the best and sure enough next day puts me right back in the net. Again, patch me on the back. It'd be all kinds of competences come on pingpong. Let's go, you know. And that that's he was just the best. I mean when I think or inversion buddy, I know what happened and you you've already like RA parties, and you probably by. And it was all night. And all of a sudden there was some. Next thing you go motley Crue, and you just destroy the room. Then you gotta play the next night come on here. Don't get a hold back number one chiklis podcast number one. The number one biz. I never liked motley Crue. It could not have been that music. No. Attack. I met you went motley Crue on the room and destroyed it. And again, look at me. I'm just a little fell. I wouldn't do that. I might be flipped on the band or something like that. But yeah, there you go big. And know that no that never happened. I had a bunch of good roommates. We had a couple of. You know that? Okay. But six professional seasons, though. And you actually finally got your NHL in your first year actually played a game for this. I would you know, Jim L pretty well on gold for us all on one of the guys ever. And he does radio for the for the Leafs. But he he's he's I don't general Nevil public. Yeah. Yeah. He's a great public speaker. But he was also a highly touted very highly touted goal. The Blackhawks played for the sevens and a fifteen year old and played four years there, and I followed him up. So I was there after and and then I with the Blackhawks so I follow them up. There we roommates in Milwaukee my first year pro where we're coach click corals white out. I would stick and relative, and I were partners. And so he's the next getting called up, Warren score density and Murray. Bama, the goalies. And and I know going down to the minors, and I'm the backup goaltender Jim Ralph. And this was going to be a great year and him, and I were roommate. And and all all good. Well, he ended up tearing MC L plane in Toledo Ohio on twenty five cent beer night. And anyway, he was he was he ended up being done and done for the year. Sure. Enough to later Bannerman gets hurt scored entities. You know, the guy I get called up scored NC. It's hurt. I get to play my first game in Minnesota. I just turned twenty one my first year pro and I got to play against Bobby Smith and Steve Payne guys. I grew up I'd allies and they played for the Ottawa sixty seventies to watch them as kids and Steve Payne had two goals on me. Bobby Smith made them play done Bo prey within the other net. I mean, I was like you gotta be kidding me. But the funniest part about my first NHL game was do believe this is this is the tar to believe with only four letters paying an easy thing. I could've put tape on the back of my sweater. Do think I had a name plate on. The back of my sweater microbes NHL gain, not nothing. So I just I go into Minnesota. I got no name on the back. I play the game. And it was about halfway through the first period. It was a commercial break and some guy in the crowd yells out. Hey, Pang the pee-wee's run next. Stick around. And I'm I'm sitting there thinking to myself, I'm five four and a half. I was one hundred thirty two pound. And I'm thinking, oh my goodness. I am in the big show. It was sold out the hawks and the hawks and the and the north stars. They hate each other. L seek or Dino sister rally the whole group. So anyway, that was my first array into it. And I I got stay there for a couple of weeks made in NHL paycheck. Remember blind. My mother marching much. I I was making ninety thousand though, I think I had about a I think I might have made like thirteen thousand some length that in that time that I was up. By law. Two seven times that this year. That's crazy. Call are. I know I know he's gonna get paid through this summer. I was making I was making twenty two five in the minors. I mean, my Purdue was thirteen dollars a day. This was a bonus, man. I was living life exactly people at the tonight their film and rookie of the year Haughey version with fucks this who is. Other guy that now is making waves the NHL different way that you played with though was a hell of a player. I I've been told was Bruce Cassidy, right? Oh, he's a great player. Absolutely. He was unbelievable. He as a rookie in the Ontario hockey he had over a hundred and ten points. I mean, I did defensive and like he he was so calm, cool and collected. It was in it was he was incredible. I never seen a guy like the fire was out its hottest. And that guy was like, he didn't have a pulse. He would make a play. He would drag a guy in front of the net. He would the first time. I got traded to Ottawa from Belleville. I was the first call drafted by the Belleville bowl. And then the second year, I got I got traded to my hometown of Ottawa. Thank god. And it ended up that Bruce Cassidy set me. So can you play the park. What's going on? What do you like? And I go Brucie you're in trouble play back to me. I can play the puck and no problems there. Sure enough pressure on got the puck on his backhand rate in front of me, maybe ten feet and he high saucers back in poster to me racing glove. I. Catch it put it down. He peels off. I passing the puck. And he goes down the other way. And he goes to great play. I'm like great play. I didn't expect that. But that's Brucie. Brad, Sean, Bruce Cassidy were tremendous together. They were unbelievable ones right hand shot one the left hand shot, and they they do it. All they were great thing. Like, julia. You around was both in IHL and the age the eighties. So I wanna ask how insane did some of those fears get because of the fights end. Did you have have scrap yourself as a goalie? I scrap in major greenery. I I honestly I got I got my I got the shit kicked out of me. It was embarrassing. Yeah. It was it was terrible goalie named Darren Kosar, and the saddest my mother was visiting from Ottawa and she drove and she stated the same hotel. There's only so many hotels Belleville, and and it was a wicked brawl five on five and I try to join into fight album at teammate and golick came and really he really hurt me bad. Like, he hit me so bad. He rag doll. I was probably one hundred twenty five pounds at that point rookie and the only channel and a lose a rugged one. So that was my one NHL no fights for me, the IHL we had a situation one time where I've never seen it before my life. We're getting ready to go on a bus heading to Kalamazoo or Indianapolis or wherever I don't know where we're going and our coach Dennis Rosa who still sagging on which he was my head coach. Are you seriously bit? Now, he was a wildland Myron. So I can't wait to hear this one. So he would though he's just an you know, like in the beginning part of it. He'd probably be only out of plane for maybe three four years. And so he had a couple of good friends on our team Mel Hewitt and. There's another fellow Mel shoeless other guy, and he ends up. We're getting on the bus to go on this trip. So we all got a couple of beers in the back, and we're getting ready to go. We probably have McDonalds and we just finished losing a game seven to six and neck. No, like, we're we're kind of you know, what's going on the front of the bus. We all kind of pure out there. And and we're like what's going on? There's a light rate on the landing area. Right. As we're taking like, we're, you know, the the bus the doors open and like hell's going on and Mel it and our coach and another one of our players are in full pledge Grohl so roses. I mean, he's trying to I mean, he's trying to go hard on. I mean, he's fighting them hard. And next thing, you know, they've taken their, you know, their gear off the bus and Rosie comes in. He's got a little I don't hear a little shiner. He got nicked up a little bit. And we're like what what's going on. Let's go buses going, and we leave. The two are teenager sitting there with their bags right there. And I'm thinking myself, we're in the show what is going on here and a lot of our guys 'cause they they were American League players from the Springfield Indians. But they moved right directly to the. We were the number one team from two from the Blackhawks. So there was only four or five teams that were number one Phileas the rest of them were number two affiliate. So you can imagine some of the gong show that we had going on right there. It was unbelievable. And that was that was that was one the second one was always in fag on I got four of us got beat up by by some local eight local jumped out of a bar, and I got my front tooth knocked out of me. Peter Hore check with our captain and I got into the bar. And I said Chucky, you gotta come here we've been hit. And he said, I just bought a new three twenty IBM w. Rolling really hard. You know, making twenty two five in the minors. But I bought this beautiful gravy, and w and and he said, not the car, not the BMW. I said Chucky we've been hit. You gotta get here. I lost my two. And so that ended up being front page of Saginaw. You know, news stuff. So anyway, that's the miners. What are you going to go through it? And then. And you know, me I got out of the car. The boys told me to stay in the car and lock the door. I'm like, I can't do that. I opened up my door. I jumped out of the car, and I got popped like three or four times great in the melon and my tooth is lying there. I'm like, this is no good. So anyway, that was just for me not much fighter boys. We can tell but but eventually the NHL level, and you actually color. Ody's and well being Gretzky was head coach. And from what I'm hearing from all these all the people in this organization as you guys used to go out and have some pretty iconic dinners where he would just like the. And you guys would just sling stories all night long. That's what I love about Wayne. I love him to this day. He's a hot stove, and I actually met him up. He has a house here in St Louis of all places because obviously Janet's from here, but he loves it here and call the other day, and let's let's head over the sportsman's the little local establishment. And we sat there had a few pops again. And that's we talk about golf hockey. And we did that in in Arizona. I always call them the Phoenix coyotes when I was there for four years. That's what the coyotes were Phoenix coyotes, but I gotta tell you I had a blast. Mike Barnett was GM. You had obviously, Wayne talk off Samuelson. Just a great group of guys and everybody wanted talk hockey everybody wanted to hot still there's a couple of times where weighing on the plane, and we're we're, you know, we're heading into a certain city, and he's like let's go we're going right back down. They've got a couple of pops waiting for down at the bar. And we're going to you know, we're going to talk about, you know, dove it and talk about some players, and it never stopped biz. It was the like I've had a lot of fun being broadcast. I have fun. I've done this for I don't know since nineteen ninety those for years were incredible. They were incredible years pal? And I know they didn't win but win involve every single person. And that's what made it so much fun. Every every day was a great day every day was a hot day and only one win. And unfortunately, couldn't get that done there in Arizona, everyone who texted me about stories for you knew you wouldn't mention this one one day you having the ring and yet a coughing your hands. And I don't know if you're playing on your. And and you walked right by a forklift when asked over tea kettle on it on Palance, and we're going to be setting out in a little blog on our Twitter. So everyone can see it because it's on YouTube actually, Bonnie things ever seen. What have what happened there? You've never walked by a forklift before. And on new called Pango, bang, y'all. And I got a we got thank Todd walls for that. He doesn't take the blame. But there's no question that that ace reporter with targets hood. Oh, some absolute with come on. I walking down those stairs. Life's good. I think I got a brand new pair of khakis on there. I'm looking. There. Those like the Janko ones the wide leg. On. No, I had style. One pal. I went to play. I wait here come on with five five hundred place and made me look, slim and everything they were good. They were sharp video. Keira makes him look a little wider, Jack the video guys it's right there on YouTube tangos bang you'd we're gonna having blocking down there. We're going to have on her. Media to see whether those are two wide or not. And we're going to see if you got ripped on your nice suit make in place, or whatever. Okay. You get you check that out. But here's the deal about that that the forklift, okay? Number one. I'm walking down there. And yes, no doubt people that know me. No. I wasn't paying much attention. There's two things that came to mind for me number one. The the New York Rangers were in town. And I could hear a t the bus was in front of me. And I could hear that the bus was rolling peso. So I'm thinking to myself number one. All right walk down. There. Gotta go on not thinking about the bus just yet. The driver of the Orkla. There's morning Panger. So I looked you can't see this. I looked to my right and say morning probably morning big boy from guy so from JD, John. I just I say that because you know, everybody's a big boy. So he'd be boy good morning. And then I don't see that the legs 'cause they're so low to the ground that they're there, and I'm telling you what I ripped the bottom of my pants. I rip a knee of my pants and don't forget I had like I've no ACL. I I that point. I'd Sixers on my last name being hurt like hell. So I gotta pick myself up. Get all my books up spilt, my coffee, try that normal white my pants, and then look up and I saw that bus and I'm thinking to myself there in the bus, and they saw this this. This is not going to be good. You could see the good news is you'll never have to wear those pants. Yeah. Or what do you what do you make of your your auto, a sixty seven's going twelve in the first three rounds of OH L playoffs there on believable. They're unbelievable. They traded for Mikey BPH. But before that they they had another goal that with UN. I mean, really really good. And their their money. They're good. They got a lot of drafted players. They remind me of the team that we won the moral Cup with nine hundred eighty four. I'm when last year I went back there because they they had me drop the puck. I don't know. I don't like crumble brag. Yeah. I I don't want to say that Brian Kilrea vote amuse the top fifty all time there that got the puck. But anyway, you know, but. You're all brag. But I mean, if that happened, you know, then that that was really I'm actually I am more humble than what I'm talking about. But so I did get do. So I got to know a couple of guys and include window, Clark, son, who's on that team, the Washington graphic and Cedric Andrei that small goalie that at one point the vitamin was going to a game and Saginaw this year. And he's he watch the game on the way back. He called me says, holy smokes hanger. I goalie, and it was like you. And I said you saw who you see and he says auto seven Cedric Andrei, and he goes, oh my God. He's small and he's he's a he's a really quick little guy. So he'll be the goalie the future there. But that Mike. Ph where we probably gonna lead to the promised land. It's team good city. They're sold out the places alive. I love it. Because of what's going on not the Ottawa Senators themselves for what some of the things that that owner is done there. The the junior team needed some help they needed to have a winning environment. The people love hockey, they're and they're a little bit disturbed with what's going on the other side of it. Although some good things are happening, obviously with them. But still it's sold out it ten thousand seat arena. Right. Their Civic Center. You know, and it's a great spot when it's all paying you played with a couple of Boston savages under what the second generals Brian Newman from Southie and Eddie concert from challenge. What kind what kind of animals were they fly off the ice? They seem like they'll probably couple hell raises back. Then man noon. We always heard about noon and Southie. I mean, come on like nineteen family members. He knows everybody there and fill it with still good friend. He's he's. He was unbelievable because number one we started out at training camp together. And if you remember he went to the western Hockey League from from Southie and scored fifty goals. So here's this guy that comes to training camp. And I'm I'm looking at all these guys like what's that? They got this score fifty goals like noodle. So we call them noodles and go new so Nunes, and I started out in bagging on. Then he went to Halifax. I went to hell affec-. We I would Scotto same time. He went Scotto. And then we both ended up in Indianapolis on that same team. I was talking about the one the Turner Cup. So that's like we were together almost like our whole pro careers until he obviously I retired really early in my career only six years, and then he continued on. And I tell you what I love noodles when we're in Saginaw, especially I mean, you're together every day. You're you're doing everything you to movies, your drinking beers, you're going out. But the one thing I remember too is we were in we're in Hartford, and it was a rookie kind of. We didn't have the same rookie dinners. They have today where the rookies spend unbelievable the money. We we just went out to a bar. I think it was called the Russian lady in Hartford and property roll bar, and I think the Minnesota twin replaying the World Series. And so all the veterans got us, all drinking and. That was the calm and thing and news. I didn't mind that we did that for three years in the minors. So we're having a good old time. But I noticed noon was really not doing very well. And the and the vets were like keep going keep going, and they the meantime, they put some chew and some cigarette butts and all kinds of stuff in the little shot class, and they wanna do to drink, and I was looking at noon when he would stick from the dog, anyway, so I grabbed it, and I choked it down myself, and I could see vets kind of looking no, you know, in slow motion when you're chug something that's not good. They're like, no. And anyway, so I always tell that to noodles. I said, no, I saved you from all that disaster junk they put in that shot glass. I drank it with the egg Meister and funny how the little goalie had no problem with it. But that was one of the things. We're bonding experiences all over the place. And I love Nunes. I think he's just a he was a phenomenal guy. And he won the Stanley Cup of nineteen ninety four with New York Rangers. That was my. First year with the SPN was on the ice. I got to see Steve Larmer an old teammate. And I got Brian Noonan. And that was incredible. When you can see former teammate win a Stanley Cup there. Doesn't get better than that. A people say he scored that to not messy. You ready scored that goal? There is no question in the world scored that goal. And, but you know, that new thing Nunes gonna take that away from our messy not a chance in the world. But if you just have to look at the replay, it's right there. It's right there. He scored that goal masochistic stick never got on that. It's been winning. You're a beauty. Hey, this is good. But before we let you go. I gotta ask the one last question. I'm most interested in and that is this golf trip. You got the crazy crew hockey people far and wide, and they Kenny hall, and John grass Ray Ferraro, many others. Right. What is it Ireland up? I'm Bandon dunes. I hear what is up this summer Nova Scotia like how that all come together. What's the whole crew there because I have a big one that I talk frequently on here. Yeah. I love your eyeball. You guys two years way. Better you guys helicopter and stuff, and you know. Allston money. Yeah. That's exactly right. Didn't didn't have somebody wasn't Brad made out with helicopter and the cows? We're coming or something like that. Yeah. We were. I think I might have told this. But we, you know, we held back from old head, and you know, it's a lot of money, but you go into all the played thirty six. You don't have to stay there. And over a long bus ride that we do it's an NHL trip. And you know, they. Pilots have never really had guys. Crushers many beers. We had and all of a sudden like on an hour ride may days. Like, hey land this helicopter. I'm gonna piss all over this fucking helicopter. The cows looking at you like and people in the house miles away like wiser helicopter. My feel guys are hosing. I've never seen that that the difference between us, I'm I. Don't have that kind of cabbage. But that's the bottom line. You. We have a good time. First time I ever went with Kenny Holland two thousand one and I went to Scotland was with a great group. We surprised devise members thousand game, and we went with Alan Trammell, the great third basement, and and buddy named Bob ran from Detroit. And we went that was the first time that I bet that up and then in one I got in touch with the caning gun types would be and we had Joey kosher that I played a lot of golf with and and a bunch of guys. So that that was a one, and then it continued on five went back with Steve. And then KENNY'S group is is just so well organized, and you know, what you're gonna get the whole way around. And so we've been to Scotland and we've been airland we've been abandoned dunes. We are going to Cabot cliffs and cabinet links. This this August, John Butch grass in there. I I was in the group with Bucci. When now I can't remember what course I think it might have been Royal. County down. But I'm not sure that he had he had to one apar- five or three and apart five. He was humming. Boy, he was rolling. And and so we're we're going to Kavak Winston have links and Ray Ferraro's there, and we got Kenny we gotta Kenny you. We got a bunch of a lot of the similar guys that are just great guys Kenny so well organized everybody gets a laminated, basically, a passport I tin array, you know, all your two two men matches. You know, what money's in the pot? You know, what, you know at the end of the day your other field filler, you're a pigeon or your winter. And that's the way he he describes everybody. So it really puts a lot of pressure on you do. Well. And if you don't come up with any money, he lets you know what everybody let's note. And and so anyway, we might be looking for one more as he call it single digit field. Biller anybody know a pigeon out there to come to Cabot links love to have him. We know a lot of them got one of them are almost Ryan. We don't know if you've met him before panir. Lasting Corey about you. Go prediction on what you think. That's gonna go on the rest of the playoffs for the Saint Louis blues. You think they're gonna get by Dallas. Yeah. I mean, I mean being up where they're up right now, they I don't think either team has really played their best biz. And I think that's really good. I do believe and I'll say this. I said this before I think this is a seven game series. I think it comes back to Saint Louis for the seventh game far from over. But I am impressed with a lot of his young players that aren't fazed by anything this mirrow hyphen. And I'm just I don't know about when you're a defend your word adventure. Buffalo fans me all day yesterday. Because I thought maybe he deserved to be in there other than than, Darlene. I was gonna say you noticed you say all lean properly now because you've got so much grief. All mad. I got torched online for saying that saying and someone the one stat that impressed me is the fact that he led their entire team on at five on five ice time throughout the course of the whole season, gene that was one of the allow the least amount of goals like this guy was relied upon to like shutdown top lines as a as a what eighteen year old defensive or is he hit nineteen yet. Yeah. He he just turned nineteen. He's for nominal, and Cuba and Bennington done believable. And obviously you're being guy's gonna win it all anyway. So at least Patterson's gonna win it all so it's not gonna matter at the end of the but being in the top three. I I can. I mean my career ended rather quickly. But I actually was lucky enough to be a finalist for the caller trophy. And it's really cool 'cause you live with it forever. And I always feel bad for the guy that end up fourth or fifth because I mean, it just something that's kind of cool, and I I feel bad for because I think he's an unbelievable defense. But that's the luck of the draw. This is a really strong rookie crop. Because Brady Chuck was unbelievable. I think the future is pretty darn good the NHL and not to boot a free trip to Vegas with the the most important. That's exactly right. That's what we're talking about paying. I did have an intro queued up for you. And I did have mentioned that you were called the trophy. Finalist. Nineteen just for the record. I did get a five thousand dollars. Team panga. He didn't share that near. I would've had that on a silver platter? I knew you would have would I had my back. How this is great, man. It was good to finally get you on here. And hopefully, we tee it up pretty soon. Thanks to coming on. And I'll see you in Secaucus pretty soon. I'm sure. I'm looking forward to it pal.

So it makes me wanna go chatting with him. That are a we had a legit trade. Go down with the prospect in the NHL Philipson there. Please absolately not long after prospect, Adam FOX he was going to go back to Harvard for senior season the art of the VA of the Harvard. Harvard harvard. The. Who's me the hurricanes? Ship them off to the ranges for a second round pick in June's draft and a conditional third and twenty twenty the third would become a second of FOX place thirty NHL games with the Rangers next year. That's a pretty good Hoffa Carolina considering you know, he could've just went. And everyone knows he wants to go the ranges probably didn't have to give anything. But grenell. You made a great point saying give Carolina some credit. Did you own Twitter? Like, yeah. Got a second round pick from guy that everyone knew they wanted to leave for a guy that was drafted in the third round. So I mean, essentially, they flip that I mean he was originally drafted by Calgary, and then was sent over in that Lindholm Hamilton trade. But I think Carolina getting a ton of credit here agree now saying that wouldn't he have to go back and play college for another full season next year if yet, but then he will have chose any team you, correct? But I mean, it's clear that he probably thinks he's NHL ready. It's clear that the Rangers think he's NHL ready. Carolina does have. Some type of leverage and saying if you don't offer me enough, I'm not gonna train them to you to help benefit your team. He's going to go have to eat another year in college Harvard's different. Those those guys love to go back and finish out their career. And I'm not I'm just trying to analyze the entire situation. Sure. Credit can be given to Carolina forgetting a potential second round pick out of it. Right. If he ends up plan more than thirty games. But what you're saying? Is that they were like, hey, if you don't give us what we want. We're not your too good for college now, and you're going back. Yeah. Right. Well, yeah. Or we're not gonna just give up an asset to help the New York Rangers and considering your essentially fucking us by not signing with us. We'll let you rot another year in college. If that's really what you wanna do. Then then go do it. But I mean, they might say, well if you're going to offer us a fifth. No, we don't we don't. We don't care just go back to college. Then. Yeah. Hundred percent. So there's a little bit of leverage considering New York wanted them bad and thinks that he can make an impacted a lineup and the grand scheme of things if he ends up being what we all think he's gonna be. Who gives a shit was a second rounder? Yeah. And now New York knows they got their guy somebody somebody who's very high on them was was going to offer that now actually surprised that tree. Living didn't grab them back and in Calgary. I mean this kid wanted to play with the Rangers. And the whole point was that if you went back to school, it'd be able to sure sure there you go. So he found his team, and everybody's happy and credit Carolina forgetting the second pick. He only Neil that was like no one out there that he's a Long Island K grew up on Long Island grew up die digress fan. And he only wanted to play with the Rangers in this kind of goes back to the fact that you're seeing a lot that a lot of these college kids. I mean, they they kind of get to pick and choose where they want to go. You gotta wait. But yeah, if you waited out and you're good player. You're going to pretty much have your choice. You think it will be addressed in the next? Yeah. I think it may. But keep in mind if if these players. Aren't being paid earlier on like, let's say a junior kit was drafted. And then by the time. He's nineteen twenty signs. I h shell deal. Well, if nobody picks guys or pass up on them and draft them later on by the time, they get to a certain age. I feel that they should have the right to say where they go and how much money they're making. Because at that time, those they would be technically becoming other entry level contracts as the kids would be if they were nine age, age wise. Right. So it's like, well, they haven't made any money they've been playing college hockey. I mean, unless you're playing for the London knights, of course. But job, I'm just kidding. But yeah, I think that at a certain point college kids, maybe should have that. I think that some guys bring a little far and Jimmy V C if we had him on even tell it to his face like I think it's kind of funny how when he was up in when he was trying to find what team he was going to go to it was like every week. He dropped one team off the list and it kept getting dragged out where it's like dude just pick a fucking. Team. I'm sick of hearing your name hand until August fifteenth. That's the whole issue. I know, but it was like he's narrowed the list down to five. Oh, yeah. That the list that was not his fault. I'll back which is fine. I joke around about with them. But it's just like dude you haven't played a fucking game yet. And everyone senior name like, I don't know. Obviously things have changed a little bit. But coming into a locker room when I was a vet. If you had a kid like that. I'd be like smart in the fuck up. You better be bringing everything that we've heard about because if you don't I'm gonna shrivel you the entire season. Yeah. She river. They got a nice hall for that traded got a got even better for them. So looking good. What else? Do you have the biz artist wanted to stick tops Zakheim because us apparently playing on a tourney yell, obviously, it turned out to be actually attorneys yell. He he they didn't think it was that serious when it happened during the first round, and he ended up having successfully C L surgery after playoffs. So I cop lamented him on Twitter. I just I said that he's a Honey badger. He works as balls off. Just one of those guys. He's brings his lunch pail to work every day and when guys play through injuries like that. I gotta give credit where it's due. Unfortunately, it was only one tornado where I played with two. So you got some catching up to do buddy. But nonetheless, he can like add that into a children's novel the teddy bear gave his crushing note. But he was on a tornado c l like I just see him putting this into a new book. He's gonna right. So congrats to him for grinding that out. And I also wanna talk about a FaceTime. I got the other night. From a rocket. I think it was after the raptors game. I'm not sure if he went, but Peter Girgis, the guy mentioned as the most off the ice assist of all time lines up all the rookie parties for the NHL guys has a bar and awesome restaurant Tronto Clark called marble. I was I was there a few notches when I was in Toronto not a big deal, but he's also buddies Crosby, and I get a FaceTime from Peter Girgis at I think it was like what eleven o'clock and AirAsia and sure shit. He was with Sidney Crosby and sit sit sit was it was in good spirits, obviously a tough loss and playoffs. But he had a great year has just been nominated for the Hart trophy. And and he he made an inkling that he might becoming on the spit and chickens podcast come on lied on. Now, I said that he goes and his comments were I need to make up for that performance playoffs now and a lot of people listening. Don't know what Crosby is like personality wise, but he's a little bit self deprecating. And he's a fun guy. He's an awesome guy and all you people complain about all he's a baby no personality. Now, he just doesn't show it to you mutants, but hopefully, we can get that personality on spitting chick. Let's and listen he won't be telling kill stories because he isn't getting he's got a smoke and hot girlfriend if we can get him on I'll tell a couple kill stories. So thanks Gergiev forgetting them on FaceTime. And hopefully brokering a deal in order to get him on the podcast. That'd be unreal. I would say probably number two wanna list of potential guest to get an spitting chiklis number one before. Okay. I I would disagree. I would say Brett halls right at the top of the list. Yeah. We'll we'll do some on the part. Nikki six on builds. Bilges business wants kill stories put on table this noon. The ride home. No. Fortunately, we have some sad news. We got to end the show at this week tough tough story Jason botch. But he was a writer for the athlete. He also worked for TSN Canada. I passed away on Wednesday only forty eight years old apparent hot failure. He's a guy. I think we mixed it up during the Bruins Stanley Cup of years ago. He's a guy who liked to mix it up online. Like a lot of us who cover the game. And I never met him personally. But everybody who worked with them at terrific things to say about them. I know we had a wife and a few children leaves it just it's just heartbreaking heartbreaking story to be that young. And just have have Lysol young years old. I mean, I'm I'm going to be fought he said, it's at heart failure. Yeah. Oh my God. Jesus you just gotta hope that there was no pain, and it was quick form. But I woke up I was like holy shit. I saw that. And just thoughts and presidents family the consensus. Zygote from just a lot of media members who are tweeting out about him. And you knew he was a well respected guy space on the number of people who wrote comments online, but they said he was very opinionated. But wrote very good articles and stood out because he was himself. And he said what he believed, and you know, if disagreed with you, come after you even mentioned, you had a little rift with Bob MacKenzie back in the day where he was going back and forth. But listen, there's sometimes I disagree with certain media members. And how they specifically ones that continually try to shun the game like something's way more violent than it actually was. And that there's a real problem with the game that needs to be changed specifically when they haven't even laced them up, which drives me up the goddamn wall. But nonetheless, you know, we're all in this for the reason of we want to give our opinion and entertain and try to bring people's knowledge about the game to to a different level. And he got. A reaction from people. You know? I mean that the matter what that shows you good at what you do. If this many people would get upset at what he wrote or agree with what he wrote it showed. He had passionately loved the game. And we were thinking of his family because that was a really shitty thing to lose someone in the hockey family small, and no matter what part you you play a role in a lot of people that are involved were really sad to hear about that passing. And we're thinking of be a lot of fans wrote to me said he kind of wrote from the fan perspective, which is what we do. A Boston kind of tells it like sees it. He's not behold until editors he kinda just wrote from the coffin, and it was a fan favourite, and it just it's just an awful tragedy. We're Poudel hockey media community to show we wanted to ignore it and mentioned and again, extend deepest condolences and sympathies to his family friends in his at the athletic. So hopefully, everybody's doing okay. Subside Nozoe boys we getting ready to fire fired up at hurricanes to edit. This thing get it out. And we'll see everyone. Hurricanes at the garden, and hopefully for our sake the Bruins can make this thing series. But either way business getting after it, he's promised us. This has got check time for the Bruins. They need to pull this out. If they don't win this game. I think the series is kaput Sigua and see the rub is in his pocket. He's not gonna use from his so. I just hi my foreskin. But. In one one quick last thing, and I get into on this fucking online with this guy right now. So do you. So so Klingberg had a pretty funny celebration where he was fist pumping, and he was making this motion with his arm used to make and Grenell posted where your what do you grading the Selley, and I wrote to in the pink and one of the stink gets a seven point seven point eight celebration score and underneath it. I wrote ca- somebody else mentioned it or someone else already put it the underhand being blaster. Listen, it's. Yeah. Like aggressive. So one guy came at me online saying all like what are women going to think of this? When they read it, and I'm like fuck you like there's women who liked it and laughed and dot it was funny. Like, what what you're going to have the safe for what women can think humorous and not like, what type of level of narcissism is that I have an aggressive sense of humor. If you don't like it, just go the other fucking way. And I'm sick of this whole like oh being resp-. How was that not respectful to women? Do they not know that fucking guys finger chick sometimes and use that type of language? No. And there's women who think that that type of sense of humor is funny, and they're ones that aren't. So don't try to come out with your social Justice warrior bullshit. I know where that fucking line is. And I won't cross it. I'm not sexist. I'm not racist guy's finger pussy. And I think that that's what Klingberg was doing that celebration. And that is final. So fuck you. Nasty. All right. It's a pleasure to be back. I love you getting everybody have a great weekend. He's a little song. I wrote you might want to sing it note for note. Be happy. Never live. We have some throb bland, you were you make. Happen.
