"Front lines in the fight against prove it. 19 referred to as heroes. Many of us don't actually see the hard, dangerous and often traumatic work of trying to save lives during a pandemic. Tim Okumura wanted to capture the intensity in the emotion of that experience. He's a Canadian painter based in New York. A serious health care heroes features portrait of health care workers on the job. They're mostly nurses, but he paints other people to a few doctors and medical examiner. Tim has seen their work firsthand. He lives right across the street from a hospital in New York. He was even invited into a few hospitals to paint some of the people who work in the covert units. I spoke with Tim earlier this year about his work. And began by asking him to describe one of his paintings, the one that he refers to as nurse Tracy. The idea behind the painting was to really capture a sense of the strength and stoicism of this particular nurse. But obviously she's representative of so many medical workers out there and so many nurses, But she's basically taking on the pose the famous pose that Rosie the Riveter has captured our imaginations with for so many decades now, so she's flexing and rolling up. Her sleeve and basically displaying that she's up to the task, of course, and she's wearing a scarf on her head, and she's she's wearing a blue surgical mask as she's as she's flexing this this muscle how did you choose the woman that you would depict? As as as the nurse? You know, I was invited to and why you Lango in hospital in Brooklyn, And basically, I just kept my mind open to finding the right nurse for the pose. I had several nurses do the pose, and then it was really the final nursed. Her name is Tracy and She's Jamaican heritage, I believe, and I just I had her take the pose. And I knew as soon as she did it that she was the one that was gonna end up in the painting. So you know a lot of times.

This year has been a real challenge in the pandemic has fundamentally changed our lives but many folks have found ways to not let isolation get the best of them. I know so many people out there all around the north. Were ready to support you. I think a good storyteller reminds you that all storms pass. We've been here before but we can help to route at resilience and make them more aware of how strong young folks are this week. Unreserved how indigenous people are turning to digital communities storytelling and culture feel connected to squash those isolation blues cleo denny writer richard van camp has essentially been on a one book a year pace for two decades his latest called gathered share some secrets to great storytelling and it includes seven stories. Elders from his community have shared with him. Richard is here with us now to talk about his new book and how storytelling can help fight and banished loneliness especially during this pandemic. he joins me now from edmonton. Welcome back to the show. Richard musi cho- feeling sal. My see my friends thank you. So let's party. yes let's party. So can you tell us about your latest book gather. Oh thank you. Must he chose so. Gather really an exploration of my journey as a storyteller. For those of you. Who don't know my name. Is richard van camp. I m c show denny. I was born and raised in fort. Smith northwest territories treaty. Eight country goes born in nineteen. Seventy one and i was raised in a town. It was. It's the maty capital of the northwest territories if it's paradise schwartzman throws territories officially quadri-lingual so bush cre- dna a french and english spoken at any given time. And when i graduated from high school i ran. I went from hero to zero. Because i had no idea what i wanted to do. No idea at all. I wanted to be a break dancer. I wanted to be a minjah. i was nineteen. I had a mullet. Some pinch hickeys. And i actually had a real existential crisis. I had a midlife crisis at nineteen. Cause i was like what am i gonna do. Who am i supposed to be. And i saw that. They were looking for drivers for the handy bus. They were looking for volunteers. And when i saw that on the green screen in fort smith northwest actors. The bango channel. I realized that that was what i was going to do. I was going to volunteer. I'll start driving the elders around. Because i was a really good canadian. Really good treaty indian. I was a really good person. I was a former. But i was a really poor ki- chou denny. I didn't know anything about our language. I knew a little bit of butter culture through our mother. But you know i was so busy having fun growing up by what i realized when i showed up to begin my apprenticeship as a handy bus driver in fort smith northwest territories to the matriarchs to the lighthouses to the mama. Bear's portsmouth arthritis territories. And i'm talking about irene centers. Dora toronto seraphine evans. Emilia gate tricks. I'm talking about the sweethearts of our community. They could see right away. That i was a really hollow indigenous person culturally and that i was searching and they took me under their wings and it was bingo runs. Hospital runs medical runs. It was trips to cancers in the northern store and trips to the landslide to watch the pelicans return it was through those driving shuttling and careering the royalty of our community wherever they wanted to be that they started sharing their stories with me so gather is really about what i learned. The smartest thing. I ever did belan was i realized a few months into apprenticeship as the handy bus driver. Fort smith risk territories. No one was recording our elders. Nobody because the mistake we make as we think everybody is going to be here forever. And so i remember explicitly having this. Oh my god. If i don't record our elders and get these stories downs. I think we're going to. We're not gonna have this opportunity my message with gatherings. Don't wait to record your heroes. Honor them now.

Could a Jack Eichel Trade Land Him With the Boston Bruins?

"You want to make a safe bet how about you bet every year around this point of the Season where Jack eichel is unhappy with the situation in Buffalo there every year. It's the annual Jack. Eichel is sick of Buffalo story, but probably won't actually get traded. Maybe this is finally the years but Buffalo continues to lose which I don't know why this is a surprise to him at least like just cuz my God what Taylor home exactly like to be I don't know maybe I guess when you're in that moment, you know when you're on that team you think wow, we just got so much better. But in reality you just got a better scoring Winger on one line. Like it's this isn't the NBA where like you acquire a player of Taylor Hall is Cal log. The NBA and it's like why we are a much better team in hockey. It is four lines and you obviously one score is not going to transform whole team. So Jack eichel is reportedly not super pleased with the losing an awful. Oh, I don't blame him that miss that situation looks miserable. So every time this happens the Jack eichel to the Boston Bruins rumors always like to get straightened up baby back wheels turning on that and I I am so here so here for the even though this like will never happen. There's a less than 2% chance. I'll give it a little chance. But but less than 2% chance this ever could actually happen equal to the Bruins, but you you astutely tweeted out Wednesday morning. Give me your best trade package for Jack eichel Chicago which prompted people to give off their best trade packages. Ron Jackson office a lot of compelling offers. I mean hitmon law, this is my favorite go figure Boston gets or Buffalo gets the Evan marinoff skier F boss gets Jacqueline Connor McDavid, and I said, I think the Prof gets more than just McDavid Michael. I think you might get puter off in there too. Well, here's the thing too. I mean Buffalo is in such disorder and disarray that you need not stabilizing presence there someone that's going to bring Authority and stop the shenanigans. So who better than that having that or not graph to correct? What's been going wrong in Buffalo for decades now, you gotta lay down long. That's what he's going to do. Right right down right now. It's a it's a character thing more than talent and that's the team needs so I continually yeah exactly they need a leader. But so that was a great one quart low lands a little does. He know that Evan and Connor are package deal. So that's a no deal in my books. That's fair. That's that's that's a good point. That's always going to send me the Buffalo wage.

Is Tom Brady now the greatest team sport athlete ever?

"Who is the greatest athlete of all time to debate. That i saw again and again on social media today after tom brady won another super bowl. Mvp super bowl ring. He does again at the age of forty three and this might be as most impressive super bowl victory yet. And i don't even know how you have. That discussion in the big picture to be honest is like where. What are you basing it on is the number of championships is it. The number of mvp's is it. How levick you are It could be you know you can dismiss some guys because they're part of a team sport versus individual where it's one hundred percent of that person that drives a success like that's probably a i mean. It's an apples and oranges thing as well different sports. I don't even know how ya how you could ever come up with that. certainly james. Tom brady is very much in that discussion. Now here's the. Here's the issue. Stevie with tom brady being you know the certainly certainly the greatest quarterback of all time okay. Let's go with that all right. Let's go hands down greatest guy to play that position seven championships multiple. Mvp's multiple wins games. All that stuff. So i think he's the greatest quarterback but but if you if you were on that same team with tom say prior to the tampa and you're on the six superbowls and you know another player on that team another quarterback of course but so so. Where does that leave you. You know if you're if you're a middle linebacker going or gronkowski on. Hey i want six. There is that what is that. What the qualifiers. To be the greatest of all times. I was there. I wouldn't six so the the football kind of funny for me to pick to pick a player that has a completely different position in hockey. For example everyone you know you got a bunch of forwards bunch of skaters know and they award them bill norris trophy for defense and all that stuff and so hockey. I think you can figure out who. Who's greatest of all time because you're comparing apples to apples there. So that that's a bit of an issue for me to single dot saying you're the greatest of all time again again because there'd be other guys who played on that team who won super bowl championships you know it's just an interesting position to because everything goes to the quarterback it's such a unique position your guiding the ship. You're the leader of the team on and off the field. It's such a unique position that in team sports is not really another comparison in my opinion the other sport that i could compare that to where where i think. You're singling out a position player. So i don't think you can call them the greatest football player of all time. It's quarterback baseball right. You can get an you. Get an ace pitcher. Okay on a on team of course and if you said okay well he's he's the greatest baseball player of all time. And you're going to wait. Wait a minute wait a minute. I'm i'm sammy sosa over here. Okay right what do you mean. I'm where i'm pete rose there. I'm i guess pizza name wouldn't be in there anymore. You know what i mean. So bad is gonna wait. Wait a minute here.

"Offence Matters" to Jon Love

"So john. Love the beginning of every podcast. I asked my guests what word matters most and why so. Let's begin there. So i'll use the were offense and i'll tell you that. In a period of crisis where negative news abounds the hardest thing to do is to wake up every morning and get on your toes in lead you to be bogged down with the negativity of the moment and lord knows twenty twenty. We've had it between covid and trump and all of the other brexit on everything all this negative stimulus. What's fundamental is to get up and be able to be positive to play offense to move forward and that's true with your personal self your attitude your relationships your professional self. It covers the whole gap. Look back at twenty twenty. And don't say i'm glad it's over. What did i like. what did i learn. What am i benefit from. What was the highlight of twenty twenty and think about how you can use twenty twenty to map out what you might like to do in twenty twenty one and obviously we're off to a tough start twenty one. I mean lockdowns. Brutal that said where some positivity because negative energy always is takes away from us. Play offense think pod look forward. It's fantastic advice to begin with. And speaking of the beginnings your beginnings i read an article about you and you said a book your dad if there was a deal to be done don would be there. Tell me a little bit more about your dad and would influence is he had in your life. Father was a builder builder. Businesses builder relationships And he had great. Values was an eternal optimist. He was always playing offense and you know he offered many lessons to me into the rest of our family and to those around him he taught a whole generation of real estate young inspiring real estate executives. Who all went on to do interesting things. So what's that lake following your dad shoes talking just about what he built but the impression he made on so many people there. You're now his son. What's it like to be that a son of someone that has had such an impression knowing that you also want to walk your own path. I think know the challenge for every child of a successful parent is trying to find their own way and to me that starts with the enemy is always the enemy within and so we have to have our own off conference so that. We're not always seeking validation for me. I started my business career as a retail stockbroker. Which turned out to be a pretty good idea at the time first of all. You get gratification. Or not every day when you know what your commissions are but that validation over my almost five years as a retail stockbroker in edmonton taught me that in fact you know i could be successful in my own right and took the monkey of a successful off my back

Indigenous documentarians tell their own stories of connecting to culture

"Documentaries can be powerful tools for storytelling but for indigenous people. This wasn't always the case for a long time. We were treated as subjects documentaries. Never telling our own stories but now things are shifting with more and more indigenous storyteller stepping behind the mic. Telling their stories how they want to and that is an incredibly powerful thing. Today on the show to documentaries about culture connection and finding your way back decades ago members of the michelle first nation northwest of edmonton took an unusual step and dissolved their band. They gave up their land and treaty rights to gain the same rights and freedoms as other canadians. The michelle first nation is believed to be the only band in canada to take the step one some descendants of the band. Call a huge mistake. The cbc's calling underwood brings us that story. And her own personal connection to it. Is this the truck used to drive back then. I gave a nineteen forty nine. I'm sitting in the passenger seat averni. Calloway who's big red pickup. Too bad. it wasn't a nicer day. I know it's cloudy out. The wipers are going and his daughter marine is in the back. Look at our home. What's left leftover earnings giving me a tour of his old reserve. It's called the michelle first nation. It was originally forty square miles in size just northwest of edmonton by al-khalij. Live here my uncle alec. Let's he's gone out to dozens of families used to live and farm here. Now it's mostly private farms and gravel pits. A good gesture astor disaster when the band dissolved in nineteen fifty eight the reserve was split up and every adult was given a section of land but just about everyone ended up selling. There's off ernie's the only one who still owns this piece and he still lives here. Yeah that's pretty special. Hey oh yeah that's especially. I don't think i'd ever move. I had offers a lot of people wanna biter land here. But i no no way i would tell after you know whatever whatever that word carries a lot of meaning. It represents anger and resentment that still lingers between some of the former members of the michelle bound some argue this reserve would still be here. if it weren't for the likes of one of her knees old neighbors johnny rotten You know it always bothers me. What happened with what can you do. Whatever ernie blames part of what happened on johnny. It seems he played a major role. And here's where i fit in. Johnny rogers was my grandfather. My grandfather died before i was born. I don't really know much about him. I've seen them in black and white photos and he doesn't really look indigenous. His mom was from the reserve but his dad. Wasn't i have my indian status through my grandparents and my mom. But i've never really connected to the culture partly because the reserve no longer existed by the time i was born and partly because my mom never talked about it. I wonder how my life would be if the reserve existed today. I wanna know. What role did my grandfather play in. Its disappearance my mom. Caroline hasn't been back here on the field. Her family once farmed for many many years was the house in there. Yes like our house was in that area and then there was this role of trees and us kids used to climb up and play them because they were so they were big. And you could hide up there. My mom and her eight brothers and sisters lived in a tiny white farmhouse with their parents. Johnny in clara and there was always a great big big trough on the outside of it. And that's where the cattle would come and drink and They had pigs and chickens and cows. They grew wheat. They also trump muskrats and rabbits and other wildlife. Light wasn't easy dad in my older brothers and sisters clear this basically my older sister. So that's why they're able to working. The land was tough. But that wasn't the toughest part it was being under the control of the federal government and the indian agent. This is what my mum's younger sister nita says. You know you couldn't even go on a holiday without getting permission to lead the reserve. I'm pretty sure you even had to get permission to sell its crane. He couldn't just take it to a place. Had to permission everything you did when you were on the reserve you had to get permission and i know that was one of the things that my dad did not like her dad. My grandfather also didn't like the way he was treated after serving in world war two. He signed up in nineteen forty three. He was one of a couple of men from the reserve. Who chose to fight.

Joy. now come on now is just the third guy of the expansion era to go back to back Stanley Cup champions with two different teams. He wanted of course last year at Saint. Louis. And he wanted again on Monday with the Tampa. Bay Lightning. Any certainly appears to be having one hell of a time celebrating down in Tampa congratulations on Stanley Cup number two, and thanks for joining us on spitting chocolates. Patty Maroon. Extra I appreciate it. Thanks Boys Arrived what an intro it's been a crazy couple few days as you can tell through my voice but. I still can't believe it. I it. It's nice to see you shared on first off. I thought there was no chance. You weren't to keep that going for the pod going to take it off, take it off of start. It off right but. You're speaking to your body. I heard you were having a sumo wrestling way offs with Ovechkin in the fucking. What's happened there? Who who had their? known everyone had me and and. I mean it was it was honestly what tonight that was to like. Doing way off with Ob and you know said there. Now of other boys I, mean it was not man like the whole the whole time. So it's good to hang out with those guys and actually have a couple of drinks get their personalities. Just who would ever thought I mean yourself. Acoustic. Saint Louis and to bring a cop to your hometown, and then you're you're not resigned which I trip them the other day I said, what we signed this guy fucking signed for nine hundred Tampa right like Jesus Christ but I digress. But then you go over to Tampa you've new John Cooper fifteen years ago whenever it was like just take me through your thought process on everything that's happened. If you really not even had the time to sit back and think about how special this has been. I mean I've had time but as you guys know the last. Few Days I've been. Pardons grank it. I've been bamboo go myself a couple days. So no I mean I had time. I mean when Kook got the call and he? When he called me, I got the call from it was you know he was like, Hey, what are you thinking about coming to Tampa let me talk to joy on Jimmy. Call Conversation with some other teams in the work but until then I wanted to go to a team that I wanted to win on and. And I thought Tampa. What they went through last year was I thought I can help their locker room I'm not going to help them on the scoresheet every single night but I know I can help them stick out from their teammates they can play a little bigger you know like Kuch can play bigger Tyler Johnson Stammer, Polat they can all play bigger and feel comfortable they have no No someone that can protect them that knew that a group That one at all and and I know I had history with winning Kooks. So was just icing on the cake. So I think he needed is good luck charm to win that cup for. You're too modest about the scoresheet thing because you're picking off sauce in the final game a mid air in the neutral zone. How good that one feel That felt good. How? Those are some Sekhmet Sarah, you look like, Kucherov on every single fucking bad pass that goes around him. He's like he's like the video game. If you just put it in his vicinity, he's going to find a way to get it on a stick in order to make a play. That guy is ridiculous. Kucherov in when he's in warm ups. Going like sixty percent and then that's a game. percent. Sean areas give me a shout out to about my stick. So. I can't complain about that. Now I mean fuck I don't know I black out there they go ahead my hands up in their bitching at the bench is you're telling me to get off and I was. Still made the places like shut up I know how long should be here. This long enough best partners I thought Volkov. It his first game and I was going nuts. Now's like who scored that I go to the pilots Coleman I was like Oh shit maybe I should have changed. Unreal that we've talked to other guys about the day to day aspect of the bubble and obviously you guys one in a great view guys. But how challenging did a gift? Not necessarily you but just the daily day to day grind of every day the same thing over and over again. I'm in it was a grind for sure. Are I think the problem is like? I'm so used to. An old but I'm used to leave an anthony every single year obviously the year before stayed in St Louis but I always used to being away from family. And I know some guys were asking me questions you know what it's like and it's GonNa hit home for you when you're two weeks and then a month and in a bubble that. You're a month and a half man and your family you can't see your kids and. And then when you get into. Yourself closer to the Stanley. Cup or the conference finals here trying to get your family Americans can't come in, but the Canadians can. Kinda sucks, and but we came together as a group during that whole time Toronto. We had Polka Ball. We had We had tennis courts. We had a pool outdoor We had like five restaurants. We had the beam oldfield where you can go over and play Spike Ball. Soccer football play catch. You know there's kind of a bar outside there's a restaurant open there at five o'clock. So we had we had thanks to do and trial. Then when you got the advertisement was kind of. The we call it the prison yard, which it wasn't, but it was a cement concrete where you can tell why guys in Edmonton were struggling probably more than the guys who? got the free ice caps. So I heard. Horton's. Best the. A free double doubles in the front. And So yeah, I mean it was. It was tough at times for sure when you're sitting there grinding your way, but we're fortunate to have a good team. So we never felt like we were out of it and I know you guys touched on a bit like when the teams down three one, three two or you kinda thrown in the towel just to get home like we didn't have that feeling we had a feeling.

"And so Jonathan last season ended with the oilers out of the playoffs yet again and mcdavid really badly injuring his knee. Air Couch. CBS McKay that make David crashes into the blades. Net dripping is to call your it is again comes down. And it's the the left leg that makes the initial contact rate there on the post but I mean that's a lot of speed and weight coming through into that bar in the left lane and documentary. It came out about a week and a half ago that revealed just how bad this injury really was. Yeah so one of the interesting things about the mcdavid injury was that it was initially reported. What is being far less significant than than it turned out to be? The media's a whole believed it was a mild knee injury in fact it was six slinked injuries extremely serious. The doctor told me that it was actually a full peal. Tear tears both sides. The moment excuse toward the right off the bone mcdavid was recommended to have surgery which would have taken him out of the game for an entire year. It's it would have been a crippling. Crippling blow to the franchise it would've been devastating to to connor mcdavid and the fact that he's able to come back now and be eh the best player in the league again after an intense summer rehabilitation is. It's mind boggling. It's it's it's an almost inhuman achievement and in that documentary. They revealed how he was basically forced to make this incredibly difficult decision. And a matter of hours have to make this crazy decision that either gonna make or break. Twenty years of my life plays out the rest of my life plays out. I gotTa make this decision at Twenty to vacate. Get Him twenty four hours because they had scheduled the surgery with the second guy for four days later to make that decision so quickly at that age with so much riding on it. I don't think anybody fails to appreciate how huge of a moment that was for him personally and it seems like a really bold choice I mean. He avoided surgery and basically rehabilitated. This dramatic injury through physical therapy. And he it was you know bouncing on trampolines and doing gymnastics work and working with a figure. Skating coach at one point seems like a kind of risky and maybe somewhat alternative approach the medical staff within the documentaries. Speak to some of the dilemmas. They faced along the way. And you can understand it because it's it is it's like walking a tightrope as I'm Dr Mark Lindsay. Who's WHO's part of the team described it at one point because you wanNA stress it enough that the the muscles he'll but you don't wanNA stress it too much further damage edge and they did it successfully and I think it's just a testament to his character and his work ethic and and the amount of hours and effort that went into this? Did this film film changed the way that people see Connor mcdavid I think so. I think he's more accessible now than he was before. You can't blame. I'm a person like mcdavid. Who's been in the spotlight since he was you know since before? He was a teenager for clinging to every bit of privacy that he has this pulled back the curtain. A little bit did it showed us his support network. His family His his girlfriend. It told us it and it. Shana light into his emotion. which is something that we we rarely see You'll see react. Sometimes in game very rarely as he animated post game there have been rare exceptions to that. But this this was one of those instances this is one of those very few instances where fans able to see beneath the surface. And I think it's maybe it's it's greatest value of the documentary. was that it it. It showed us that so so incredibly. He did not miss a single game at the start of this year. Just six months after this really devastating injury and seems to be playing with the same speed and aggressiveness especially especially going to the net. That he always has destroyed the business. And I'll tell you what he's been fighting fitness but is there concern about out his long term health with that knee. I think there's always a level of concern when you have a talent. This brilliant that. It's going to be snuffed out early and any hockey fans will recognize the name Bobby. Orr who prior to Connor mcdavid was regarded as the best gator in hockey history and is still regarded in some quarters. That's the best skater. In hockey history and his career tragically ended early because of recurring knee problems. So it's something you can't rule out but at the same time if anything mcdavid there's been better this year. David David drives this way. Here is stairs go. Wow Wow wow connor mcdavid again with brilliant we are. There's no sign of any lingering ill effects. He was a little bit rusty in his first couple couple of games and and after that he's just taking off to a degree that we haven't seen before this is the best season he's played in the NHL in my opinion and as much his injury can be put to rest that put to rest and looking forward to the end of this season. What do you expect from this oilers team? Will they make the playoffs. And how far will they go I expect they'll make the playoffs and after that it's very difficult to say. They play in the Pacific Division. which is the weakest of the h four divisions and at the moment what has happened? Is this logjam where there are five teams. That are right on the playoff bubble. And you know you win two games and all of a sudden you're competing for the division title. It's an an unprecedented situation in my experience covering the game. So the oilers could. I expect them to make the playoffs. And it wouldn't be a big surprise if landing in the postseason with Connor mcdavid and and to a lesser extent. Leon Dry Seidel. They were able to make. Some noise is especially against some very comparable Pacific division teams. And you said earlier that the root of the problem has been historically bad management. Do you think the new management in particular new head coach Dave tippet and new general manager. Ken Holland have what it takes to build a winning team around Connor mcdavid. I think Dave Tippett is the best coach that I've seen in my time covering the team. He's extremely even Keel. He's extremely professional extremely diligent. He's the kind of guy who who makes adjustments and gets the most out of what he has the oilers head coaches in the past. Who have done some good things but lost players tip? It's a guy who tries to maximize every the resource at his disposal. I don't know if Ken Holland is the perfect fit to build a contender around. ECOMOMIC DAVID BUT I know he won't make the same mistakes that have they're made in the past. He's the kind of guy who believes strongly in having a process of building a pipeline that that generates a continual flow of of young talent alant and I think the oilers could use that the question now is whether he can do it fast enough and fortunately for Edmonton. The answer appears to be based on the step forward. The team has taken this season. Jonathan thanks so much for joining us and enjoy the rest of the season. Thank you very much.

"The only team you could really compare to them is the nineteen seventies dynasties of the Montreal Canadians which you know. We're we're a whole other level entirely as well and it was. It was a different world. We haven't seen it like the nineteen eighty s oilers since edmondson's unique city because unlike a lot of other markets. It's a one team city and the oilers are are everything sometimes it's to their detriment because Edmonton is kind of perceived as a fishbowl. oilers are recognized on the streets. Everybody knows them. It's it's it's the talk of the town they are maybe the number one one civic activity in Edmonton and I and I have to say from my perspective it feels like the oilers put Edmonton as a city the on the map to a lot of people outside of Canada and it's so far north in it so far out of the mainstream. It's you know if you're not in the oil industry street which is the other way you might might come across it. Alberta of course being famous for its oil and for its beef but Even if you're not a hockey fan I think most people have heard the name Wayne. Gretzky having that sort of transcendental star it can't help but raise the profile the city and and I think ultimately the expectation is that at some point Connor mcdavid will reach at the same level of consciousness. Obviously we're still very early in his career. And of course Gretzky era ended in nineteen eighty eight in one of the most shocking and monumental moments in sports history. I'm disappointed about having to leave Evanson. Truly Meyer all the fans and oilers fans recovered from that yet. I think there's been recovery because I think there's understanding you know in hindsight. It's it's one piece civil larger collapse because the OILERS Cup after Gretzky which I think a lot of people who may be aren't in Edmonton or or more casual fans don't know there was a phenomenal supporting cast. Ask those guys were all removed. Sort of in the span of five years and It it was such a total collapse that you you almost kind of had to start from scratch as a fan and now fast forward to the modern era this Edmonton oilers team was really bad for a really long time thickly even though it would go over all time ago cargo Edwardson and thanks the owners. I kept getting number one. Pack after number one pick but kept losing and then they got the number one pick the Edmonton oilers would like to select with their first. Pick nick from the Connor mcdavid and yet even with Connor mcdavid. This team has really struggled. Why why is that? Why haven't they been able to win even with this generational talent historically incompetent management that? That's the that's the simple answer right there. This was a team that should be far ahead of where it is now. And the reason it isn't you have to look at the at the time. Peter Sara Lee who was fired midway through the past season and and deservedly so because he he was handed a good young core Connor mcdavid and got one playoff appearance out of it and there was this big moment home at the end of last season. Where in an unexpected moment of candidness connor mcdavid talked about how frustrated in unhappy he he was with the team's lack of success has been roller coaster? It's been emotionally challenging. It's been hard mentally to to kind of keep keep on going. You know You know but we were always kind of. He was so upset. He was so frustrated he was so disappointed with the performance of the team and and where it was ad in the NHL standings where it was at in in the broader NHL picture that he just reacted in the heat of the moment and it. It's it's impossible to to criticize him for that because it would be frustrating. He's holding up his end. He needs the the franchise around him to hold up. It's and I think this year there's been a transition to where we've seen the team around him get better. We've seen more support. We've seen more intelligent decision making from the front office and ultimately that's the only cure to those sorts of frustrations uh-huh and Jonathan. There have been whispers that perhaps Connor mcdavid request to be traded. If the oilers continue to fail is is that a realistic possibility like could Edmonton fans. Who once lost Wayne Gretzky also lose? Connor mcdavid I think it's possible but I also think the danger of it is overstated. I think there's a level of wish fulfilment in other markets where they see mcdavid being Wasted on a team that that has struggled for so long and want to get him out of there. I also think that the mcdavid feelings on the matter were made pretty clear when his entry level deal expired he could the four something at that point. He didn't instead. He signed an eight year commitment with the oilers and That that's not an indication of the player who wants to bail on a problem. NHL wants it superstars to succeed. They need their superstars to succeed for lead to be successful as it wants to be and this guy is the face of the NHL so from the perspective of the League what is at stake with. Connor mcdavid success every league. Take me to market at stars in the NHL has been criticised and rightly. So I think for years for failing to do that. They've they've tried to get better at it to me. You want the best talent to play at the highest stage possible and ultimately that means getting mcdavid on a long playoff run plane in the Stanley Cup finals and I think it would be good for the game. I think it'd be good for the League. I think it'd be good for Edmonton. If that were to occur.

"And in terms of all time greatness. It's really not a stretch to draw a line from Wayne. Gretzky to Mario Orialla Mu to sidney crosby and now to connor mcdavid. I mean this guy is the superstar the NHL. Yeah No. It's it's no no stretch at all. I mean if if he were to retire tomorrow I think he'd be in the hall of fame just based on what he's done through at age twenty three in in the NHL. He's he's not even in the heart of his career career yet and he's he's up there with the all time greats and what's he like as a person what have your interactions with men like. Well he's he's it's he's guarded with with the media. Let's put it that way hockey and we're going to try and go out there and play hockey. Not Cement Voltage. So he's very reserved. He is a guy who who is all about the hockey. He's very serious. He's very dedicated to his craft exciting. Yeah would always does when these two teams face off tight tight eight division. If anything I was reminded of a description I once heard of from German generals in the first world war where they don't have hobbies. This is what they are are. And that's how mcdavid is with the hockey. He this is what he is and has that worked to his detriment. I mean have fans had hard time warming to him because he is so singularly really focused and kind of reserve. You put a player like him on the ice. What he can do on? The ice fans will warmed him no no matter what he's like off of it but I think what it has created as a little bit of distance. You don't get a lot of looks into what he's really thinking you don't get a lot of feel for how he's really perceiving things and and because there's that distance it's allowed sort of rumors to abound in and people to kind of read into body language and see what they wanna see but you have to respect what he does the level of professionalism. I think there's almost universal admiration for it and let's just take a step back for a second. The Edmonton oilers oilers his current team. This is a team that has you know one of the greatest histories or traditions of any team in. NHL.

"February twenty fifth NHL trade deadline this year. What is the dynamic right now, and who is playing slash trading slash managing for their job. Hate the stuff, but we all know part of the business. The reality GM is certainly on the hot seat, Ken Hitchcock. They said was this year. And then we'll see I mean, if they made changes next year at the top, then the changes could come everywhere. But I also think that the owner has made it pretty clear he expects to make the playoffs this year their season ticket renewals. Go out soon. I'm some of their Rogers place weeds are up after three years were in the third year. Those are going to go out soon there's wide ranging hockey and business decisions that have to be made with the Edmonton Oilers. The first round pick is interesting because one thing I didn't think of until after I read it after a road. It was I'm sure that's going to be protected in some way for sure for example, if they make a deal is it going to be top three protected top pick protected what? Exactly. Are they going to be looking at? I'm not sure they're gonna get away with top ten. Protect would imagine all depends on what you're getting back. Right. If you're getting a home run back. No protection. Yes. Beginning the home run back the chance that that is not going to be a lottery pick anyhow, right? And what do you say like some of these teams of dine will protect it from one to three or one to eight or one to ten this year. And if you don't get it this year, then you get whatever next year right Edmonds bet on itself to be better next season. But then again, they did that this year someone who would know was saying to me that he thinks it's more likely the first round pick gets dealt then pull gets dealt if they go and make that deal ause on that is that because the marketplace is depressed for v you can't keep secrets in the NHL anymore. Nobody watches play RV everybody talks about pull Yar v. Everybody has seen him play either in Bakersfield or with the Edmonton Oilers. Everybody's well acquainted with you know, what the issues are with player via and even. The fact that the discussion has been had and the name has been out there for a little while. Now does that raise red flags about Yari? It's seldom I know what happens more so than ever. But is seldom that someone who is that higher? Pick is available that quickly. That's true. But like I said, Jeff I've heard there are people in the organization who say we have to be patient with this guy that we don't have a lot of heavy bodies who can play. And he's a heavy body who we still think could potentially play one of the guys I've heard that Edmonton had some interest in. And I don't think this was very recent. But a while ago was Jake Virtanen from Vancouver and a year ago. You might have looked at Jake Virtanen and said, Nope. And now you're looking at Jake for tan, and you see a path you see ineffective player a guy who can play in your top nine in the NHL. I gotta think that there's people in Edmonton saying why can't pull you RV the same way. I do believe there people there who wanna hold onto. Him as much as this is the decision of the general manager, Peter Shirley has the hands on the wheel on this one and on and on these deals..

There was a another couple. They are each they were fun and super chill, and we had a good time getting along with them. We talked on nights and see drink a lot. We were kind of playing on her phone. So we exchanged numbers. And once the drink started flowing kinda talked about like what her and her husband were into and what my husband were to. And we kinda had some seem things except she told me that her and her husband are in an open relationship, and she likes to have fun with women. Okay. So we kind of part on and leader on the knights came up to me. And she's like I have to tell you your husband is very attractive. And I was like, well, I know so I had to tell him, and he kinda got all cocky, and then we were kind of joking about bringing her to a room and totally joking. And then at the end of the night, we left with them and in the back of the cab her, and I actually kissed totally playful and from what I remember the night kind of just ended in me went our separate ways. So they went back home. And now we've been talking like in a group chat with her myself and my husband, it's kinda flirty. It's different. I feel like me and my husband have girlfriend right now. And I just kind of went hope to go ahead with this. Okay. So I made out with a dear friend of mine in college to sort of impress guys. I think that that's probably pretty typical.

It put a little bridge in our in our friendship, but the point I'm getting at is.

"Tonight, the Edmonton Oilers top the cover avalanche six to four and a wild one especially that third period of this game. The Colorado Avalanche had forty three shots on goal tonight. The outshot the Oilers forty three to twenty six but Coskun was insane. The man was standing on his head tonight. I mean the app scored four they easily could have probably hit double. They. They could've score ten that. I did the Colorado Avalanche. But Meco Coskun it just a monster between the pipes for Edmonton this evening. If you needed example of that just the final two minutes and third period when they just kept shot after shot after shot, and he was he was somehow finding a way to make saves planning to get to here and your postgame show. We will head downstairs. Into the into the dressing room. We'll hear from head coach JR Bednarz type it all scores round the world of sports. But first and foremost, why don't we go ahead. And listen to the highlights from this contest. First period cop rods, yet gets on the board is third of the season made at one nothing Edmonton. Then in the second period. The oilers. Well, the the entire gain got kind of wild there in the second matter of fact, we had four goals and spent a three just over three minutes there in the second. I hope it was right nugent-hopkins. He's court twice in the second period to start things off his ninth and tenth goals of the season. All of a sudden Edmonton was up three nothing and then Khan mcdavid on a breakaway scores. His seventeenth the oil had a four nothing lead. At that point in the abstract is looking to get on the board. They're looking to snap whatever's gotten into Kosta in tonight. And that leads us to this highlight Tyson Barrie working his way up the nearside wall now on towards center rights, Renton and holds looking shooting scarred. Rented in. A piece of good news for the Colorado Avalanche. Santa's point streak. Live Meco.
