Hi good morning welcome this sabres hockey hotline era double BTR seven Sylvester Andrew Peters. Back together after being separated the last two days and you know big news happened yesterday while you were landing salmon and Lake Ontario mr. Peters. It was there it was great time away from them I'm not gonna lie yeah and likewise for me on Wednesday but. We're glad to talk about the new head coach is seventeenth head coach. Of the Buffalo Sabres he joins us now here on hockey hot line Dan miles let Dan good morning and congratulations. Thank you very much appreciate that you and you know yesterday I was in the office with a gluten in my area I saw a picture wrote. Have you guys done a check them out there travel 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 get so excited really it's. Oil spewing yesterday. About the opportunity an extension. The comment about what your organization that it's obviously the last couple years that have been good. For the sabres where they expect up in the league but our prospects or or what this team in the what's coming to this team. The young players and not and well some of the players that are already with the sabres I'm real excited about the up to them so boat building and developing this team and and moving it down the road or the Lewis also dust we want to look the when he came in buffalo. Daniel it you'd mentioned yesterday Elena Astra the president about spending next year off. A bomb in evaluating 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're headed. I think epic live a pretty significant amount time that it in the course I would have yours in Pittsburgh. We made some adjustments to. How we played we made adjustments to. Even the leak and and what was happening. In the game. And promote or you know I don't really were but just were bigger adjustment and and what we did in we try to look all that the team and and Pittsburgh and although there though there may be difficult questions to answer in ask when you're in the middle of us even when your Villa. The playoffs. But a year how big a 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 it with James and throw 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 a point saying okay the next time. Because is clearly were going to be next time there is now at buffalo. And hopefully the last time as the day goes a long run Korea. Did you ever see it is up okayed it next time I'm not compromising miss or I'm deathly doing this differently. I think every situation they're tired you don't get Torre talked quote. What I can't look Pittsburgh Penguins. You know they had. They were young for certain but it shouldn't target came out and Marc-Andre or George star are all into their careers there. Again literally you know what I got their but almost established. What it started this week. And you you're out. You got that situation and it's going to be different in buffalo its not one order. Our players there are establishing a weepy. I'm not our players are under 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 an appropriate at top of this career and it came out in. Julie players do very good players and I think you add that to who your approach externally. I learned much from a damaged metadata from me as a coach in. A ticket multiply and be applicable to a deal at some of the players that are. In buffalo on coming to book quote don't shoot. And you know there's there's always knew where you look at and say it was I could've been better here right I want to adjust the situation here. I do think that situation in both slow as well 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 leak of the elite. The political news yes but that doesn't make them special and knew what they treat them differently and everyone else the same. I think you're treat. You know Jordan all. A certain way that the married at the way you treat it trouble you you treat. Although 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 out that are just present right error just were the second pick overall. You treat. Players Shirley Richard but I think you treat every where up on what they're earlier where they're at court to rule in the Chaman and argued fighter in place but I do. I do draw on that I think we talk to you to try it because everywhere you wonder what it's like there could be in the room with a star player and you wouldn't like to coach or player that. Many people consider the best in the game. And what I I you can pick what director IQ and drug bugle player in our case is one without the world so. There's always that questionable coach and star players but the get a day execs sometimes they're the most thoughtful players. Than there's some really long. So lets you talked about teaching and who. Who wrote. 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 Renato I'm just looking or at add that there are others but what. So rule. Who was strategies or tactics have maybe you taken a little piece of and implemented in here 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 your coach probably about six years and a lot of are playing career. And really I wish. Or is a little bit shocked in the game Rivera was not where we're anxious for these ghostly rarely get up and down and what's the guy choate and sorry to give it show. Of the lack of a lack of coaching electoral. Are you you know. In the game and Gary turner had a five mile away and the game in and battled through ups and downs and saw at long time to go low or I was done playing I was. I would look at cultures and right now things stand make it a lot of literature at all. I took a lot from a lot of different people always backed up. Probably a coach and the outer shell and index them and it's so. Larry Robinson and then I think that you coaches that I. Were the most. Word and him very well what out of Los Angeles Mike Babcock and then. Anaheim and years that I spent playing and there are Mike Babcock and they're really continue to go to match and Todd Richards. A stretch out the first had coached electoral or in Cincinnati. And those first three years we're such a big learning curve for me as well as a person and other cultures there and and I really believe and the teaching aspect of the game and then a developing. Aspect of the game and really. Trying to get better every day in what you do and are you host a game room and that's something. Sabres coach or an app to do it's gonna be a vote. Development as an individual development as a group and built into a winning culture. That's Libya. Well the learning process the teaching process develop. We are I'd chatting we Dan vials mob here on the eighteenth the outline the new head coach of the Buffalo Sabres seventeenth. In team history named yesterday elbow yesterday rule was wasn't without any drama it seemed anyways from outside the and we sitting there wondering okay away. 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 he came down dishonorable we need compensation. What was that from your point of view was it confusing did you understand what was going on was it is. A 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 at the other day I domestic round pick I was flattered the Vegas. Zero to explore that's like eight absolutely I thought they were gonna throw in some blocks well. Yeah well right up in their auto news new puck they're they're round talk or when I used by. I was little I would like but I've never bend I would never trade it in my playing career. And so I would I was actually pretty uttered about. Back in or about the draft pick him appear third round pick I I felt pretty ghetto that well. It is took a little bit along heard yesterday you may be appear from the outside and and sometimes it does your dog between you two parties entry authorities shouldn't end trying to set and got the prolonged time wait spur. Burke council but. You know it look at weather and much of the Idaho are on all the. Don't be too flattered than it was a third of three thirds of doing things. Which really really close to or else well there really is. Might end up being a flood rather than yeah I. That these something. And dog ate it all worked out for everybody there I'm what how. It back to Mike Babcock first second. Played forum you beat him in the Stanley Cup final. And when 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 coach of the Buffalo Sabres. And your in the division win him. 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 I hear you know we've. We now seem to have banks aren't together always. And a lot of her time in in my coaching. Opposition within Cincinnati the American Hockey League and our our team during a lot go Mike which. Our head coaching a ban on time so I owe a lot of them. That here. Because lockout out of Cincinnati it and now we've been. We've bumped into each other numerous times. Down the road and then that. Probably looks like it's going to be a few more times. And commit just in game against the beliefs but. No wait it's a small fraternity. Of coaches that he wanted to Mike here's Seneca high school. I talked to quite a bit throughout the years that he. Her body at different times I know we've patched things note after. Disappointment and Erica well period a couple years back order a bowl game and there are a lot of different things so you know life. I'm happy for Mike Mike got a great opportunity to Toronto and Erick great challenge and no I feel the same way about what looked going to be to great challenger great opportunity it and so one of the order developing. Dan 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 ya 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 good or not dole or you know what. What's the next topic of discussion in terms of of coaches and who your team is I know they have are deserving of there as well and while where do you go from here now. Yeah well you touched on quite a few bases there that we two 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 arguing your month long process. And in dealing with some of those situations but. I'm I think the first thing that I'm going to do it. There are people who are from people. How could people in place in your organization I'm gonna talk to those people older shortly and now with archery yesterday in a couple member Rick Williams are old news and again and and some of the other one we will popular surely here but we do feature. Together that. And surely you mentioned you know a couple made you mentioned or you're out. It's. Gonna put together at that I got to develop well Archie as well dopey teachers. The other group vertical huge. That are gonna develop this group in a movie script I wrote teach this group and that's going to be get picked auto. Oh what we got to the and at Rochester and probably an extension of that we're going to. I'm gonna develop. You know winning culture not just the book will ever for the entire organization directly Rochester. Our development process for the 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 in on. Yeah a plate plate definitely keep up with the times. With the game on on the Blue Line because there wasn't anybody last year for the younger players. Not messing will make coaching an insane there was any former defenseman. On the staff. And art the back of the sensitive subject for coaches because. I would lower. And when you start coaching usually end up coaching that the coaches coach the defense surf or run the terms. And thought about answered that question a lot if you haven't been trying to do that the last twelve years go by I. I think there are some good coaches that included offense spectacle to. Because I don't try to get our current order that you're meant someone at that level. But I think it is important at this. It's going to be a big part of the road what will report ordered art disparagement. On number of them we have a really good young defenseman but they the word that you have to grow and develop. And that's gonna be picked responsibility you know the assistant coaches that happened during the right person in. That joint book or sabres to do that's going to be yet it's not that surely. You can be a defenseman but. I. Probably am mother right now they're mostly get down at the conflicted about. I played actually you can't wait to sentence. We 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. Played expansion and food at them at that position with the step but he. Larry and others but I think you can it going to be guys that are developing you grow. Would this team and what. There are. They now. What kind of team do you think you're gonna have to build in order to win here. Eight. Net interest in question and I'm looking out the game in and let you know if the game. We're certainly talking ball. Well popular sugar and analytics so we are aware of the talks at a quieter you're not that you don't let you look at the fortunate that our remaining. Right now and buying. In game seven ticket Erica final there's. They play differently they have different attributes. Are taking your children seem to develop a strict Billick change. From there are some different ways that they've ordered I'm playing well. Became an that stretch came in getting an up and don't quickly it. They are being there or every team and a player more probable game but if they're little or check in retreat to a game in the upper orbit. All the teams. Can the center and all the teams can earn a well. And I think that's going to be a foundation for where we built a political will favors an ankle or forward and partly developed and cooling period. Who'd do you think is gonna win the cup. That's. It's I. I predicted. He's the piano very lightly to win over the couple rounds to go and I. Am stick to it that although I don't like the prospect of the better Lundqvist during games out of I numbers are far more than he got either on believe look forward then in game seven or he'd give ever up with your check out that in Tampa Bay again. And I just think gum and the last few games where. And argue that with their vocabulary and Chicago that are after they won game which is gonna pull through to get Erica Arnold. Colonel Gary Sutherland. I wanted to can go in Tampa Bay and I don't expect they'll. Interesting you mentioned goaltending in the conference files do you have someone in mind I you don't to name names her did you think under is when back is a guy that you like to give a shot too I mean is are goaltender out there. That I mean you know Chad Johnson raided Jews so. I do I do I think the going to be achieved our vote the spherical thing last year I think your. There are three different occasions. You know that that was and I had a through our guys and they played extremely well. Going back and would see them more than I puke or. You're both Florida got a pretty good job and that he certainly did that over the course of the game you play well it's certainly a situation I think where. We're gonna look at and are looking out. As potential particularly true with the team. Landscape. How that's gonna happen if that's gonna happen where that where that that is yours. We still little murky and there and look at what might be hostilities but it is terribly important position. At a place where we usually do get better at achieved so we certainly want to get better not in that area. To go forward. We only have 57 more questions for Dan miles an hour until. Now we got a bit we got a tough stance and nobody that's here used that does go. A. And it. I I still only got about eighty text messages or to give back to today though. Yeah not not to mention find a place to live right I don't certainly family now those questions that probably year your family has. About buffalo about moving here we'd all its busy. I neglect I want as his earlier but your. Familiarity with Tim Murray. You know he was person a player personnel director when he played in Anaheim he joked that he complained about July as a player but. And had when your coach at Cincinnati. Had there been any. Contact with Tim what's the history hair aside from what Tim mentioned yesterday. If that might as I mentioned my first go to Dublin what eight choking or attic ducks you're a lock out. And and that year we had we had our organizational meetings and I'm a rookie charter and I'm. Oh it LA and channel Thursday and so. That was my first foray in true scouting meeting. Organizational meetings that are meeting then and I Caroline. Why on the law and order that that was the director of player personnel that time so. I guess firsthand experience into the passionately. Insulate their timber he brings to back type of discussion these. He had a pretty our reputation of being a greater value your talent and identifying. Still an errant hockey players and and I want it to Donald and sent them but that was that couple weeks of boot media was very eye opening book action on energy. I outs and didn't bring to their valuation other player in the draft picks. Yeah amateur players though I've met him better. And that on your block here and which way to. Put out of work segment where don't have time at a time we hear that. All we can would come to weekend game and them being the coaches in the coaches. Court to rule that time shall I learned from that ought to spend. It was a two of them bring access to and I would rural areas just a coach at goats and upon interim that are. Or figuratively penalizing. You know shut partner can't talk to them as well. Destroy. It's popular all this from actual place. A much talk with numerous times over. The past couple years ago and prospects game and probably impossible earlier this year in August I believe September. A bomb to an Armageddon and Chad it was him there as well shall. It's I literally ships that not a part or the pretty pretty comfortable yesterday I was right we've really. Earlier prescilla data that position. Planet them as through Buffalo Sabres in the direction that they're boring and the development streaming and virtual really but both are position. I'm very much looking portrait of Internet underwrote. I'd final thing and this is the final thing what is your favorite. Fish to catch to go for. That's your final thank you as my final thing because I don't think dude how we started this fishing and I wanna finish finishing on you know sandwich the interview here and in in what the guy go but I'm glad it's I don't think for me anyways fishing. It. Like look at what percent of this year river like fiction while it looked. The best time of the year earlier army so all part of the best but I do a lot of trial. I do a lot of I officiate anywhere anytime it despite Eric I can get out there are so. And 2003. It wasn't a guarantee when you talked about shaken Scott Stevens and. You know at at it completely. It was a funny story and photo work too long or are we got right now but. We were it was struck in two weeks we were we eleven days during the conference. Final and Erica player option. I was talking on a radio station. And it before. Our most popular polo player auto analyst mark Becker CO BR for trade secrets well. You jerseys the cream of the crop they tortured daily cup yeah players like Scott Stevens. Brodeur and in my area it would be you know what would be better than. Are you aware that Stanley Cup game seven only been about the past are spiritually as yeah that was the comment I made. Erica broken down to somehow I had a graduate stuck beer and then we'll know we're in the. They can't fit that in headlines I'm learning in this business. Yes. Through it's that our Lola I was trying desperately to kept throughout anything that would mean it's going. It would it was funny because Mike that my shoulder in the morning here at game one. And literally just so what you know. So what are you regularly treaty reached in the equivalent of a Dresser momma what are you talking about. And the red white and cut that a lot of there are. That was the lesson that. I learned pretty clearly a boat shop where our that a boat Aetna life and momentum to another team and when the that never got. All right that is better final question in my are right now. Dan thank you so much for at the time we really appreciated in the Puerto talking to you. Over the course of your first season here in the summer a lot to do I know for you personally professionally. Best of luck congratulations again. Thank god look at appreciate it looks forward to talk me down a wrote. All right that's sabres head coach Dan piles monkey used today it sabres head coach Dan piles month. Did NASA allowed jacked cycle because you can go on the audio vault and here is an obvious it was Bulldog and W Germany talked extensively about. Jack cycles talent world championships will come back we'll talk more. About Dan piles month a lot of things you said that the connections that Tim Marie Christine here on sabres hockey outline. It's interesting question have you ever do the game against that supported the game as we certainly taught both. Puck possession our analytics so you are aware of the box that played in the offensive zone but you look at the port here that are remaining. Right now in buying. Game seven to get Derrick got finals this. They've played differently they have different attributes. Are either throw it seems that a fellow suspect LA kings. I'm there are some different ways that they've ordered some player over. Speed game and stretch payment is getting it off and don't quickly it. That's stand files must sabres head coach job when this the start show here on sabres hockey Alan if you missed the interview. Early on demand audio section WGR fight if the guy come more on the app. And your conversation Kevin Sylvester Andrew Peters. Here review and I ought to talk to him for another 45 minutes and Arnold we exhausted and there but a lot of great stuff to talk about. Oh yeah I I you know what though he. He obviously is a busy man he has the stuff to do cuts and coach is defined he's got some. So a lot of stuff to do what. He touched on some their puck possession and it you know analytics and you know par possessions to septa broad stroke word. I think we look to players what Gary he's great in the corner of the party can hold onto the pocket and you know look how long he can hang on to the park and but I think puck possession you're looking at teen puck possession. Where does it start starts he mentioned yesterday or not I'm not taking this is my own body he referenced yesterday. The key to a good offense is a great defense and these teams that are playing right now can defend weather that the scoring is. Lopsided as certain nice. They they're going to game seven so obviously they can defend. So. I believe that starts in your own zone it starts with with the you know like I closed my eyes and a picture guy like mark pass a currency starts with a guy that can make that. Nice first pass out of the zone and we joke about how how it's so important that all under pressure management rice. You know finding finding a guy you know whatever it is and then. Those players knowing what to do with the park next where to put it. Because you need to have a guy going there to the park it it you know advancing in the park through his owns and up the ice. While maintaining control but while sacrificing giving it up at the same time I mean that. That puck possession comes you know lap you know who was the first guy in on the park you want them. Pass guy the biggest town to go win the fastest like a Marcus Foley and ordered drive in there. Lift up a stake through the guy's body in the boards take apart to start the cycle down well. What you it has to start all the weight starts with your defense I believe it. My 100% believe it might even might even be able to throw a little bit of a wrinkle in that strategy by having a goaltender that can play the park. And. Well look at Ben Bishop there's been games where he's played the pock and it's been a huge key Matthew. You need to join in here your nickname is is stats sunbeam. That's naslund stat caller I like to and hired Dan vials does say that it starts in the offensive zone because I completely agree if you can and plays quickly. Keeping players on the same shift and and to play and go back in the other direction I think it starts there and if you look at the great possession teams over the last how many years. What are they always that was ever true top defenseman plays the whole game and they always have a great two way center. This team potentially has four on their roster. Which leads me to be general or defenseman right of that could be top defenseman I that's not including past sick McCabe. It's not at all I mean. It's it's Bogosian and no particular order. Ogle from from the least experienced the most experience you have posit door rob risked the line and Bogosian Georgia's. Just from from a variance to use if for top four. So. Brings me in my next comment Jay McKee was some of the boys before. Baton or our map Jeremy and Howard sorry I got map in my mind Mac caller Matt was there to. Jay McKee cystic coaching in Erie this year coach in the American League knows all of these young defensemen. He's got power brought up. He's a top pick his fourteenth overall. Was a top to defense shut down defenseman. Which is I heard his comment about Dan wanted to know he played Purdue and miles. You know stand system. Used it near you re you help me here help implement some understands stated knows what Dan's gonna wanted to these defenseman I mean tucked it. Jay McKee when we when we lost him middle 506 every once Edward Darden we lost three already but if we lost. Jane just another guy I think we were in trouble anyway is Jay was such a pivotal shut down guy. And you have. Four really good five in passing six in McCabe. They're all like could. Corrected him that could be a great potential secretary gone by and that style of game because Jay had points and junior he had forty some points and junior. So he he had offense he had more offensive people knew but he is simplified to gain you do the little things that make you successful and miles most of my point all of this asked. Jane the key. To block last shots I heard that this morning I remember Jay telling us Kevin off the air that story. But he told us that he told on the block less shots now if I'm. If I'm hearing that as a forward or I'm thinking like you want jima key to watch block less shots. But they knew you hear why box so guys you're big you're strong you could take the body we got a star goalie and tell us the Zito said the exact same thing why are they blocking shots let the goalie save he's making five million bucks. Save your body. Let the goal either play it or you played or your defense partner clears it or your support forward clears. Textbook hockey boys. I found. I found Dan's answer interest team when it came to the defensive side. Having some the coaches defenseman. And in really you know what as a Smart answer. When he says you know what I believe you can coast offense and having played it but it's a very sensitive saying and I think more from a player perspective. It probably a message probably resonates. Better when it's a guy who's done it. On the Blue Line as opposed to a four word out who probably knows exactly what they need to do Andrew. But because they guys play in the game didn't watch him play that position. Growing up they have probably hasn't resonated well right. And piles of files and I had. Reardon with them who is in Washington and he's in Washington tiger and there and he's a lesson he's going to be key piece to that team. For awhile. I think Washington's definitely trending in the right direction I think they showed that this year Tony Granada was in Detroit he went there after miles always like go and work actually exe Babcock stranded at Granada to go to Toronto welcome. I I have so I guess you know the next thing to drop his assistant coaches. And and I guess that's what brings me to Jay was on this morning he's a friend of mine but I wouldn't be safe suggesting jade this easily if it were. Blue shade or. Peter of war we connect dots every day. So there's obviously a relationship aerobic I know what's gonna play here for ten years he's one of the best defenseman in Buffalo Sabres history forget statistics. On numbers were talking defenseman. In their fur two different times recently of excellent teams. 99. Oh Sylvia what's. He be able to tell these the what these. Not. Forget about his buying into the system and all that stuff but what what the fans are gonna want Aussie. I think that's important yup there's an expectation from there's an expectation from. Friends and eyes of what we're gonna see got a players like if. My only if the cell you know what I don't get to sell any of us I'm Jamie key. Meet personally know you don't sell products always who'd be your forward who Iraq's own options out there. I don't know I don't know all you got to look at connections today and guys East Coast would dumb guys that he knows need tactic Wilkes-Barre Scranton mean listen. Dan miles long was a role player penalty killer when he played. And maybe it's somebody like that maybe he brings in a better shock marte and was little that Pittsburgh and maybe what's the situation there jock is I believe. Available who knows well he also gotta you gotta look at this in all fairness. Maybe you don't like author Rudy Boston let's goal of Eric DeLeon their staff I mean Doug Houda. That'll be great. There's another guy that that but I mean listen. The options are are endless and if if if you take another few brought. Petered abort let's see you Peter de boer hires in San Jose San Jose ranked. Because that's probably who we would have brought here Patti Patti come here who was a guy that we heavily talked about. I was I was looking forward to maybe him being in the culture. Well as its sole by the way and asking and his connections to Tim and you know what nobody connected to that nobody connected the dots that day and Viles all the dots connected Dan piles mower. The Pittsburgh people on the front office it came from Pittsburgh had black. A company was odalis those are the handles the dots connected to Dan vials and they were not the docs dots. Connected to Dan vials went to Emery and the when Scientology and he's he's. In one way to form has been in touch it around to emerge for quite some time. We have our list up there and it's obviously wiped away but files Mo was obviously on it. But the connection to vials of a freak forget off if the Anaheim stuff didn't fit and Seiji and say he wasn't in Pittsburgh. He has a cop. On the rise it made everything you look at four that's right and we have coming here to buffalo. Potentially I like to say potentially because there's a lot of potential for a lot of stars on defense. And on forward. And he is coached and that's one of the first questions we asked how was it coaching stars. I don't wanna see egos but that's what I wanted to stir because let's be honest stars know how good there they have to. Think they can feel a lot of now they feel every two weeks alternate paycheck has been liberty also you know what I always play so cliche go back to the dollars and cents. But seriously. The you don't is winning record percentage. And a top. Tim Murray said yesterday he has something I don't have yet a cop it's something he can teach. You learn a lot from being on a team with success. He could've it's probably still talk a lot from losing in the cup. This just as much as he did winning a cup soul. Maybe he still he you know he has a lot to prove to everybody because he'll always be you know what acted Crosby and Malkin. But he's got his own little thing here is someone said yesterday he got on a bus in Pittsburgh at the right time and I truly believe. This was probably the most coveted job in hockey after Babcock fell. In buffalo. An in hockey right here in buffalo he jumped on our roster that I think a lot of coaches are going to be jealous of in in years to come are we come back and why was compensation and issue. Witness. Why was it will tell you why next. Had the opportunity to coach Sidney Crosby had it not this career game not game. Julie players do very good players and I think you. At that it will yours both externally and learned much from from them as maybe they did for me as coach and I think at the no fly and you're both bolts of you don't have some of the players that are herbs in buffalo come into applause don't shoot.

So that's tomorrow night if you if you 10 o'clock 10 o'clock the ceremony scheduled to begin. So I get their own anchor. You year old Andrew and I went last year to the ceremony. Great as it was fantastic self. 1045 breakdown Matty. And I got an emotional breakdown for everybody out okay. A hole I'll hold the Rutherford conversation after the break down. You know we talk a lot about how old. You know how how was it when new players come onto a team after they played against each other for so long there. They said one another and obviously that's a that happens every year OK every time there's a trade there'd been words between a player on the team he's going to hand that player doesn't matter how you look at it. I needed. Personally there note Dan vials much. Until he was being I'd be to always being hired here me as a coach that dangling volume just hated him. Because he always had a good team. He always had Crosby he always had mark and they always were good. And he always had a top. Fourth line which I needed to some teams you play against and they were good like Detroit didn't have a really tough team. But while most had Eric daughter. Ten you know yes Tanner Glass or to resolve. It but now he. There when he's just always I'm just going to his rosters. McEntire. The needle rock. Penalty was there with George or not I'm looking right now always there and I tell you would have LeRoy. Now. Was deleted Georgia on the show again by Terry Goddard was there he just always had in you knew he wasn't afraid to use him like he would put him out there. And that is machine guns just just fire away run around. But I look forward to seeing what he's gonna do here and that's why we asked him what what kind of team we you know have to build an hour at least that's my breakdown it's kinda like it's that. You know you hate him as a competitor in the now that he's he's wearing your logo you'll like you look at it it's like you know now yeah. Like that great survey and I wanted to kill each other the first time we ever skated together in the eyes. On the same team. So it just. That happens all right so welcome aboard. Disco Dan. There always has to be that. Mary here that drops in only should I shouldn't lock your opponent right I gotta have a distaste for once I did let us especially when their goods. When they're not good and you understand why they're playing that way you're being that way because they're struggling and they're going through a tough time and he got to do that to save face you can hate respected the same time I hate respect to the same time. Hate and no respect is is worse than hate and it's on a respect like brute. And it ties and you hate because of the success in your it's more jealousy than anything. Alright. I wanna mention is Jim Rutherford. The general manager of the Pittsburgh Penguins. All the snow and all of this and it is nasty and Twitter. Raissi still like canister putter when this does nasty and I'm glad you're OK gotcha Jim Rutherford. Yesterday like this are supposed to be done yesterday morning. A tank penalty itself most in the show but we were waiting and waiting and then I'm listening. Pour Matt Keller. And knows that it fits to the board forfeits two. Definitions here but anyways. Portman I calorie yesterday I thought he'd laugh at at least man. Evidences of anticipation three hours it was great anticipation and as soon as I walked out of the door they announced it play and I know how we feel on a daily basis like all the news breaks at 1215. But anyhow. And the reason why I was held up was this issue of compensation. Between. Teams to hire. You know and he had coaches general managers presidents. And wanna tell you a lot we come back and it's they would Jim Rutherford said Emmett tell you why it is what I really think happened. And we'll try to sort out next Brian Gionta also next hour here receivers Akio.
