Of the Buffalo Sabres he joins us now here on hockey hot line Dan miles a day and good morning and congratulations. Thank you very much appreciate that do that you know yesterday I was sitting in the office with a bullet and Tim Murray and I saw a picture Roche. Have you guys done check them out there Hamels ran out of theocracy and try to join yet so little jealousy yesterday under. I'm old I'm a little jealous that I was an able to get down of the press conference that I was. Fishing and let's just get right into it how do you feel then. I guess they're excited really it's. Oil spewing yesterday of about the opportunity and I think you know. The tour apocalypse there are organization with its obviously the last couple years I've been doing good. For the sabres where they expect up in the league but are fast but short order this team in the what comment this team. The other players in the and some of the players that are part of what the sabres I'm real excited about the up to implode boat building developing this team and and moving it down the road who would who is also dust we want to look the when he came in buffalo. Daniel it you'd mentioned yesterday Allen Astra the president about spending next year off. If value waiting things in and perhaps some changing trends in the game. But how much that time do you spend reflecting on what worked. In Pittsburg what didn't work at the end and where you were headed. A picnic and they're a pretty significant amount time that in the course I would have yours in Pittsburgh. Who we made some adjustments to. How we played we made adjustments to. Even the leak and and what was happening. In the game. And promotes you know try to evaluate and adjust or bigger adjustment and and what we did in we try to look all the team and and Pittsburgh and although there there may be difficult questions answered ask when you're in the middle of us even when your little Lola. The playoffs. But a year out you got that step back and it'll look at not only. What we did what oh how we change or just that but what beleaguered doing as well and you look at the retain control it from a totally different perspective of being in the dated date. We're kind of trying to win games and then played the National Hockey League. For for you personally the way you approach things the way you operate they did he come to points in al-Qaeda next time. Because is clearly are going to be next time there is now at buffalo. And hopefully the last time as the day goes on a long run Korea. Did you ever see it is up okayed it next time I'm not compromising this or I'm deathly doing this differently. I think every situation acquired dealers get Torre talked quote. But I came to a Pittsburgh Penguins. You know they had. They were young for certain but shouldn't drug came out and mark under or George Starr are all into their careers there. Again literally ya know what I got they're almost established. That started this week. And you you adapt. You doubt that situation and it's going to be different and upload it's not one lawyer. Our players there are establishing an elite the I'm you know our players are on their way down to shoot to becoming the buffalo. And let's let it differently you drop that if you drop back that. Had the opportunity to coach should try albeit at top of this career and it came out in Julie players do very good players and I think you. At that tickle your coach certainly. I learned much from a damaged decorated for me as a coach and a ticket multiply and be applicable to deal with some of the players that are. In buffalo come in the book quote on the shoot. And you know there's there's always knew where you. Look at each day which I could've been better here right I wanna adjust the situation here in. If you think the situation in them but slow it. Quite a bit different a different stage than the coach and the requirements. How hard is it. Coaching. Star players I mean like Crosby and Malkin is it hard is it do you have to be different with those guys because they are the a leaked of the elite. A little bit political news but that it would make them special and the like that treat them differently and everyone else the same. I think you're treat. You know Jordan all. A certain way at the Marriott and awaiting a treat certain trust you you treats. There can interpret them differently. Well based on the player there aren't everywhere their ads so I don't think it's. It's different just sit near death grip came opener adjusters and Ryan Carter just were the second pick overall. You treat. Players Shirley Richard but I think you treat every lawyer are somewhat there early and where they are court there ruled the Chaman and are your are your team plays sparked I do. I do drop on the epic Douglas you try it because everywhere you wonder what it's like there to be in the room with a star player here. What would like to coach a player that many people consider the best in the game. And what can I I didn't pick what director I teach and drug bugle player in our case is one of the past the world well. There's always that questionable coaching star players but that the other day thanks so that was the most thoughtful players. Than there's some really don't. So lets you talked about teaching and who. Who vote. Did you learn from I mean you've coached with Todd Richards in your past you played for Mike Babcock. You've coached with Jacques Martin and use our coach with Tony and are oh I'm just looking all right Ed there are others but but. So who. Who was strategies or tactics have may be taken a little piece of and implemented endear. Style and maybe even what you've taken from coaches when you were a player. William you alluded to it I I started thinking about and claiming to be coached probably go six years into my. Are playing career. And really I wish. Arlen is a little bit shocked in the game and arrows where we're anxious for these ghostly Mary Dooley get up and down and what's your reaction oh and then charge you make sure all. Of the lack of a lack of coaching electoral. Archie you know. In the game and Gary turner had a I'm miles away in the game and and battle through ups and downs and so I have long time ago well I was unplanned I would. I would look at cultures and right now they're angry and make it a lot of literature at all it. I took a lot from a lot of different people all backed up. Bob Blair a coach in the united show in Phoenix and it's so. Larry Robinson and and I think that you coaches that I. Learn the most we're paying him very well out of Los Angeles Mike Babcock and then. At a time and years that I expense play and there are Mike Babcock and they're really continue to go to Gretchen can't Richards. But Bradshaw wrote the first a coach like coach or in Cincinnati. And the first three years we're such a big learning church Serbia as well as a person and other cultures share in and I really believe and the teaching aspect of the game and then a developing. That aspect of the game and really. Trying to get better every day in what you do and are your post game room and that's something has sabres coach we're gonna have to do it's going to be a vote. Development at individual development as a group and built into a winning culture. That's Libya. The learning process the teaching process developed. We are chatting we Dan vials mob here on the eighteenth he outlined the new head coach of the Buffalo Sabres seventeenth. In team history named yesterday elbow yesterday rule was wasn't without any drama but it seemed anyways from outside VMware it's sitting there want it okay way. What what's going on here because. At least publicly seem last week Jim Rutherford said they had Dan you can talk to anybody want to ban all the sudden when it came down dishonorable we need compensation. What was that premier point of view was it confusing did you understand what was going on was it is. Convoluted is our make it sound. Are you gotta love it when it's hard elect all right Dan you made it harder for them to let you go. I ideas that they the other day I expect OPEC I was flattered to Vegas. Zero export that's right eight absolutely I thought they were gonna throw in some blocks well. Yeah. Well right now. I knew I don't use new puck weird third round of talks or when I use them but I was little I would like about this I've never very. I would never trade it in my playing career. And so I was I was actually pretty letter to vote. Back and forth about the draft pick him appear third round pick I electoral pretty ghetto that oak. It is fickle little Millard yesterday you may be appear from the outside and and sometimes it does your door between you two parties entry authorities shouldn't get into China said and got the prolonged time we were. Burke council but. You know it look and weather and much of the strike that I don't count on all the. Don't be too flattered than it was a third of three thirds of things. Which really relate to or how well it really has. Might end up being a fourth rounder and yes I. But these a. And dog ate it all worked out for everybody there I want how. It back to Mike Babcock first second some. Played forum you beat him in the Stanley Cup final. To win it with a penguins lost two home in the Olympics. In an epic game to get to the gold medal contest and now. After all the drama Babcock last week you wore the go to the Buffalo Sabres. And your in the division within. Your coach of team USAA's coach of Canada buffalo Toronto I mean the story line could matter in any better right now dandy you appreciate that. And I I do play you know we've. We got into and out of bag tied together the way. And a lot of her time and in my coaching. Opposition within Cincinnati American Hockey League and art are you enter an automatic which. Our head coaching and time to time so why are a lot of them. Of that here. Because lock out out of Cincinnati and now we've been. It bumped into each other numerous times it down eroded and that. Probably looks like it's going to be a few more times. And some adjusting games against the beliefs but. No it it the small fraternity. Of coaches that he wanted to Mike there's so that a guy who. I talked to quite a bit sure appear that he. Bert place at different times I know we've actually known after. Disappointment and Erica well period that I a couple of years back corner a ball game and there are a lot of different things so you know life. I'm happy for Mike Mike got a great opportunity at Toronto on and a great challenge and no I feel the same way ammo box well it's going to be a great challenge a great opportunity and didn't wanna look at order developing. Damn I gotta I gotta ask you there's always these assumptions when a coach gets hired anywhere they he's bringing his guys Wear them as an assistant and there's. You know your Rochester available here I don't know how much. Input you're going to be having in natter whatever about. What is like. People talk about just associating you with Tony agree or not all or you know what. What's the next topic of discussion in terms of of coaches and who your team is finally have our deserving there as well and while we're eagle from here now. You thought you touched on quite a few bases there that we do have to address and there are gonna go to pretty immediately. Here in I don't know what's gonna happen over the next 24 hour bug or your month long process. And in your emotional situation but. I think the first thing that I'm going to do it. There are people who and people. Are good people in place in your organization I'm gonna talk to those people older shortly and now with archery yesterday and talked with him briefly at a whole new and again and and some of the other one we will popular surely here but we do future. Together that. And you surely you mentioned you know a couple meg mentioned or you're out. It's. Gonna put together that that's got to develop well Archie as well dopey teachers. The other group vertical huge. I'm that are gonna develop this group resembled this script I wrote teach this group and that's going to be get picked auto. Well what we got to the Epson and Rochester it's probably an extension of that we're going to. I'm gonna develop. You know winning culture not just the bot will ever for the entire organization erratic in Rochester. Our development process of our players so it won't stand. Tutu Rochester now will be part of well you know what trim can look oracle cherry. In Rochester at all. How how important do you feel what is to have a coach for your defenseman that played the game. Nick and teach them not. It. You play it played definitely keep up with the times oh with a game on on the Blue Line because there wasn't anybody last year for the younger players. Not messing with a great coach in an insane there was any former defenseman. On the staff. And our that they're that bit sensitive subjects for coaches because. I was slower. And when you start coaching usually end up coaching that the coaches coach and the answer or under the terms. And thought about answered that question a lot to you have been trying to do that the last twelve years all right I. I think there are some good coaches that didn't like defense spectacle to. Because I was trying to get to our current order here that someone of that hole but I figured it isn't aura had this. This going to be a big part of the ball well there are exported our disparagement. On number of them we have a really good young defenseman but they have to learn and it you have to grow and develop. And that's gonna be picked responsibility you know the specific culture that happened during the right person in. That joint book or neighbors to do that's going to be you know it's not that surely. You can be a defenseman but. ID. Probably am at right now they're mostly. The conflicted about. Played actually you can't wait to sentence. Who know. In the recent future not now that we're all brought a much older but those guys I think all of them. But most parks. Later sent him and Buddha and look at that position will step but he. Leonard and others but I you can it's going to be guys that develop and grow. Would this team in the. Are. They now. What kind of team do you think you're gonna have to build in order to win here. Well I think. It interest in question and their routine out the game and end up going to the game it. We're certainly talking both. While pot possession of the analytics so we are aware of the talks at a point in the offensive zone but you look at the fortunate that our remaining. Right now and buying. In game seven ticket Erica final. They play differently they have different attributes. Are taking your children seem to develop such a bill or change. I'm there are some different ways that they've ordered complaint over the became an. Stretch came in getting it up and quickly and they are being there or Kerry team a player more methodical game put it there or checking retreat to a game in the opera all about.
