And support the event of course the mr. Patrick Kane interview. Go back and listen to or on demand audio section at WGR five that the guys Tom. Who was thought it was a fun interview ahead and enlightening and you shall. The top of the maturity. That's been talked about by many with Patrick Kane in he could see it you could feel it. With him. And he might not he might not be a fan other showed during his fifteen minutes of listening. But his daddy is daddy is and yes the answer is yes and you know it's funny as we as on the heels of talking to Patrick Kane you know we hear about Ryan O'Reilly which will will obviously get to later but. You know there's a guy that you can look at it Patrick Kane had this portrait painted of him and posted up on billboards everywhere. Of. Of this bad apple on this bad leg and and you know there's a guy there is completely. Completely. Changed his reputation through hard work and just you don't. Trying to keep as low profile as you possibly can with with that kind of. Recognition and status and I think he's I think he's. Learned to handle it much better in and so yeah I was nice to hear that and we obviously were trying to reopen any any. You know past stories of but that's a story line with a known guy and guys but I absolutely think you know a lot of times you know guys are look at the like all remember when well. Guess what I mean. Sometimes you gotta just. Be totally. Brutally honest and say this kids grown up or he's changed and he's learned his lesson and you know. I'm perfect example of late you just you you you try and and and bill from your mistakes and and and it should it should in fact. Helped her character if you can lift up your chin and and you know walk with their head up and and except it. Take your lumps and move on. Well ice moved on a three Stanley cups is great to see him it was great to see a Cody McCormick yesterday. Were there to citizen it the players are where their real quick. Healthy skating. Good to see Cody McCormick. There let's not forget about him. For the sabres roster also a delay deal was there. And right now without a home gold's anyone's race the hall and I I talked to mom and me as a home people or he's not homeless on the armed isn't a team right. And yet there the without a home in the hockey's hockey sense toward a and and it all and he's talked about the situation and it's it's interesting the the goaltending free agent market right now and a goaltender of his status meaning he. He doesn't think he had a very good year last year and end but we all know that he's a perfectionist and end is very hard on himself when it comes to performance and Matt you can definitely attest to that went how competitive pledges pledge let you let geo is with. With his career but you know he may he may be a guy at that point worry asked look at going to Europe and but that's OK that's great and that's an option I think he's he's willing to take on and but I think he'd like to stay over here why wouldn't you but it all depends on what's out there but it's time to that point where in free agency where it is it every once signs in the kind of go to a lull and people start they they get those crucial pieces that being they feel they need right away and then they start to. Form the pieces and so another guy but so we root for him as well. Which golf. I golf waves. Some throat folks from a local law firm. Good luck played nine holes with a group flew law firm in the nine holes. Well with a eight. Sponsor of the station one it's been a long term sponsor of the sabres. The bat and they are sponsoring a get away you can while by force we lot of fun. Winning yesterday and of course Kharrazi pat. I wanna Zach Bogosian by the way at the longest dry hole it's over the green and fourteen. OK so why can't I want I was so I wanted to change it just go writing you know like gymnasium. On there decision like that guy but it was gonna be a name that I couldn't see in funny I could be ready to be funny. Is Kevin O'Connell was the NC. So like complete joke and Kevin to anyway I was going to do it and who's pulling up to the eleventh tee which is adjacent to the green in fourteen. Was Zach Bogosian. And if you see exact conversion you don't mess was at the ocean so I just I just left that'll. But it tellem there would be a test a blood test after. Week's Pepsi award. What a nice guy by the a's chat with a after the argument wouldn't see their group behind him. Like there was thing where you could buy. It's from the white tees you can buy that thing where you can move up to the ladies' tees a little further ahead right. And that was the first question I had was that he tee off from the reds in the group behind him confirmed because it was the first tee shot that he had all day was first hole that he played. And he blasted him and he landed on the green it was from the whites soul it was it was legit and it was a bomb and anyway so. That was heard our house and I miss being there. You know we talked to some Tucker Don lever Terry mark Herring Neal was there. I'm trying to close who had that retain their Scotty Bowman couldn't make it this year's eve but he's made so many many many many many years I call that Danforth guys and Chris Miller's father. Richard Muller and Chris Mueller Riley from west Seneca in the NHL yeah I didn't up and down HOH. Interesting I didn't know like it's funny care you know he and we're gonna get to a Riley and all the other Saber stories and stuff in America but. So. Local kid went to Nichols never drafted went to Michigan State and I know a lot of people probably heard of Emeril whatever but he lost in the shuffle when your when you have guys like Cain and that. It's late sixty games in the NHL. Forget about that for second. His resume. I didn't notice to world junior goals. National championship at Michigan State. And a Calder cup and that was with Tim Kennedy right yeah he's in Michigan senate Calder cup championship with and he was Texas. Correct two years ago two years ago now this year. Yeah if you never if that's your Reza mean you never play game in the NHL that is absolutely incredible. That's an incredible incredible resident. Yeah it's pretty and it's a lot of hardware. A lot of hardware with a I actually. His first game in the NHL's against buffalo is called the from Nashville. They had some injuries and that was his first ever NHL game I actually I felt bad for the kid I have been personality is buffalo kid is first and again at buffalo and gets mean not wreck. So. Cancel. And the old self deprecating now's a good joke but are here comes Twitter and any doubt at all as you know what. I actually I felt privileged to call it gets first NHL game god awful and very nice skewed careers still going wanna say. The San Jose. Says a Western Conference team well and I Dan Simon and a sound Anaheim OK aside Senator Kerry just silent somebody. Just suck it good for him grid for a good death guy that connect come up with them all right so. This great event yes to date for charity. And I get home many this guy don't receive the news. And it just kind of popped the balloon. Of what's been going on this summer. And on the on the heels of what happened. You know who would do the bills' offensive line coach yet the Ryan O'Reilly news. Witted and yes we know he's been charged with and I'm more c'mon admit it might this is my initial reaction to I think. Most of you probably at the same reaction. And right I mean that's that's the only reaction to that and my second reaction to as well as lucky in hurt somebody. And after that. The legal system gonna do what it does. And it will see what the repercussions are from that. I mean I don't know more to say about it. This is something that. Happens all too often not just in sports but in society right to me to read the paper every day seemingly and some of its nabbed. And I see nabbed that's probably be in improper way to say it. Somebody makes a board rescission. To drive after they've you know. And one too many or few too many their abilities impaired. And they uterus support. And so that all the scrutiny comes into it and the could what do condition it is and why is he do this or that and they're all fair I think. When it comes of that regrets certainly there. I don't know why it took so long to find this out mean happened last Thursday. When I first saw the the headline of the bottom I thought it happened yesterday. It happened last Thursday doesn't matter when we find out still happened. And he's in some trouble. Could be worse it could be worse. Can be so much worse that's why I say is lucky. That he heard anybody himself as passenger. Innocent bystanders. And a lot of the oversee all wise you know why did he drive I don't know can't answer that for yeah. Why you leave I can't as a four year. Why needs your driver. I don't know can answer it for either. These all seem like obvious things. Those who have experience. Consuming alcohol. You know we don't think the same way. Deflation dry weather so I don't wanna see your sound righteous. I don't think that you know we all could it's easy to do all waited. We all know what should have been done what could have been done but wasn't. And I think to. I don't wanna see how easy it is for some like it to happen Andrew but we are an event yesterday where. You know alcohol is currently available. And nearly every irresponsible and know when to say when or a you know what I'm gonna have. And enjoy myself. And hear the peace not doing so. I don't know what more to say about that. Amy is not to be sound and NHL problem it's not an NFL promise not if because he's an athlete. This happens all that this happens all the society and profession. Okay well number one. He made a mistake and it was dumb he was dumb and flat out. You just signed a 52 million dollar contract get a driver likes like c'mon football players hawk eye and I'm the last guy that should be talking I've made personal mistakes. Absolutely and and and I just an and I just wanna say that. He's going to be penalized in some way for I don't know what it is. But the fact of the matter is is that I I I. I think that when when I sit back and look at this I say I'm gonna tell you I'm gonna tell everybody something right now. Whether your management for team a coach if you never played a sport. I'm gonna tell you something right now this kid is paying for this right now he has. Not sitting there worried about its 52 and a half million dollars he knows how stupid. And how detrimental. He what he did is to forget about hockey right now. His family's reputation. His reputation. He impairs the organization. He embarrassed the cool as who just gave him a contract that everybody criticized embarrassed general manager Tim Murray. He's been known as this great team guy in this doesn't eliminate all that. He has to now work through this this is one thing he has to now eliminate and Tryon and get past yes it's forgive couple 100%. 100% it's for forgive a bullet if anybody out there are sitting there saying. While what are any. If you're over the age of 21 and you've and you've gotten behind the wheel after having more than four drinks okay. Your guilty for what he's done OK we'd when you say struck what is struck mean the daddy that he hit the yellow pole outside to Ward's drive through is that struck excited that this morning I'm sober I haven't drank three years soul. I mean what has struck me. Until we hear more facts I cannot sit here and say. What I think a penalty should be just. 'cause he obviously didn't drive his truck through the window of the Tim Hortons insane back in reverse decades pop mr. without Greg Ryan O'Reilly here boys I'm out of here. I don't think that happened. A magazine you know I don't I don't know what his his alcohol level as in Ontario it's point 05 rules are rules. Rules that I would Canada I equivalent Canada misspoke with my brother and our friends and the rule is points or five when we went out my dad dropped us off. Point 08. Was what is over the limit but it's over the Ontario limit their rules are rules I know we live in the US but rules are rules. And you have to aren't the rules because this is a legal matter. This isn't an NHL matter this is that a cross checked from behind this is this is a legal matter. So this is beyond hockey I'm now this sounds out of character for the cute that's what that's what right now I go one step further. Was this a one time now that doesn't make it right it makes it even more wrong and not it's wrong period but. From what I understand go go Google his diet is like. Point 08. Doesn't sound like something Ryan O'Reilly naturally puts a regularly puts in his body. I could be blind he could be pulled the wool over our eyes but it doesn't sound like it to me. All I'm trying to say is that until we have more facts all you can say is he screwed up big time. Okay. And I'm telling you and I promise everybody out there not that this makes you. Have to forgive him right away and I'm not asking for a violated its very easy to pile on him because. We don't make 52 and a half million dollars and we can't afford drivers and it's easy for us to say. Why didn't you have a driver while the hero in the Mercedes who just pops seven Beers at the bar gets in the car. Doesn't wanna leave his Mercedes at the bar don't want to drive home. Stupid there are services and I'll serve maybe now that you know isolated season what area do it is still so yes let me but we've all done it. And not make it right ages but it just I want people to back off the judgment and well I think it's lining it think it's fear. The criticisms fair criticisms fair. We ask you was stupid we don't know the facts yet just like the football coach we don't know all the facts and we're so we sold quickly. Like we incriminate this guy like we want them like I had someone message me saying suspect get him out of the league roam out like. Take a stance do this penalized in this way that we. Don't even know what else in yet. He struck the Tim Hortons first of all that's sacrilegious in Canada by way. It's like that's like the tell him that's like a player that's like the state pop marsh bomb Al mass stepping on a church and that in New York City in ghostbusters. Step on cracks new Tim Hortons might town. Well fact of the matter is is that we don't know the facts. Lawyers are we do know we know a that his ability was impaired according to the sobriety test in such. According to please report. We know there was some property damaged. We know it didn't hurt anybody again. That is the best part of the story it is the only light that is nobody got hurt and there is no best part wells all there is considering what he did nobody got hurt. Because. There are other things. That out outcomes from driving while paired incidents where people get hurt and killed so he's very fortunate that that didn't happen to himself his passenger. Or anybody else out there that's fair is it. And if and if it is a problem. Get him help you a simple as that you know don't if if if if if it's like you know it's it's just like anything else if if if these if these if this is a trend that we don't see. And somebody knows about that he you've got to think about the individual first I mean. I I I did not like you just mentioned all those close call a comment you made are spot on. I worry about the individual first find out is that is that a problem. If not. Now now you know I mean like like I wanna make sure that that people can. Learn from his mistake him number one learn from him is his mistake. His teammates. Other players I mean pack kaine mentioning yesterday YouTube you make mistakes along the way and you you learn things as you go. I I can't relate to what Ryan O Reilly's. Life is like in the pressure and all that stuff and that's no excuse either why. Again cabinet mean we don't we don't know the facts and and Albie. Oh I'm the last one to jump on this kid and and and start criticizing him and talent that until I hear. Until I hear the facts and find everything out here from him or a statement from the team about. What what's fact he's gonna make it okay old actor is know fact is that while the fact of of here's what we do here's what I wonder okay and maybe and you maybe we can talk about this you can explain it to people don't you wonder when we come back from the break OK perfect 'cause I have some I have some questions of of all the media reports say Brad I have some questions as terra. Just look at not not theories are flaws just holes in the story that I need to know before I can cast judgment. Okay we'll do that we come back now that we enjoyed talking other stuff went on to talk model today but we will address. The most questions we can be accurately GR. At Georgia have your program madam I'm healthy I mean you know how it is when when you're young kids sometimes a little naive and you don't really. Understand the magnitude of maybe certain situations that are looked kind of presents you might bring. When your own about. Now you and you haven't from guys like you and I wanted to stay with with the guys in the summer there you know 1819 years old to learn from. Older more mature guys that if the better around the block once or twice so and I'll give them some credit Adam Hoffmann news and news. Is good for me I was younger he wasn't a guy that was you know afraid to tell feeling. That was Patrick Kane three time Stanley Cup champion yesterday witness. I'm delete your Sports Radio 550 part of the Kevin guesthouse golf tournament it's great show. Loved albeit with his it would actually by the way albeit Danny dear friends golf outing next Monday soul. Tune in for more of the same would that next week should be great hours from Ryan O'Reilly and the impaired driving charge in Ontario. That happened last Thursday was. Released. Monday night. He and another passenger. These according to police reports fled the scene. Of the property Aaron Jackson and it's importance. A small town in Ontario. And you said there're couple things that. You wanna know of from him. From the from Nancy at a couple questions a concern and Andrew. Hello okay. But yeah I'll before raving get to that you know one of the one of the faces texting with a with a few friends here that are. That are listening in and former hockey players not all on it tellers but former hockey players and what what what I think what I think the expectation of O'Reilly should be coming from this is. He needs to and I believe he will be humbled by this. I think that. I think that he on our unfortunately he can be the billboards some of his teammates of what not to do and maybe he can encourage his teammates a little bit too. And and even I mean. For that matter. Like look at Marshawn Lynch odd duck like he's not has that got published start working again I mean. Fifty million dollar deal. You know he. Point is is that. Like if if if if these guys. Can afford. A 200000 dollar sports car. Or. A 100000 dollar. Old like our classic truck. And a Sar put a price tag on but there's a reserve that. Like you can you can how many days in the year 365. Like if you you can get a driver for 200 bucks today what is that hundred grand a year not even. Hundred dollars a day is what 36500. Dollars so 727080. Grand a year you can have someone drive you around from. ADM drop the oft in my nice bite in my box. By a sick cards in the backseat and sit on your phone. That's. I mean. Use this at lake you mentioned a great point and it was nobody was hurt which doesn't excuse it and and doesn't mean you know in condone it but. But learn from this learned that that not all but you're not invincible yeah you're not just going to get off because of who you are. Hand. There's huge lessons to be alert and whether and I made a point and you you called me out on and at the break about I said you know everyone's done it while overstatement. Yes sure I was I was being drastic and dramatic because of the circumstance but what I meant was. I'm sure that a a large percent percentage of people listening if they're of age have probably that consume alcohol of have. Are guilty of the same thing that'll Riley's guilty of which doesn't make it right not one but. Well it's all people bear you know. This is where society bears the responsibility and we're all one and I I guess I want you to go on that but just to finish my point was. We're all in if you haven't. You're one degree separation. Away or are removed from somebody that has or does or. Maybe not ever being. Caught drunk driving or whatever but it doesn't matter doesn't matter. And you wanna you wanna learn from mistakes sold that's. Yet we ought we all bear at this is where I said it's a societal thing you know we we right now the focus is on a hockey players. Com and yeah football players and as such but this is where society. Bears responsibility. In that. If we're out would somebody. Whom. It is you have a good time and they're going to leave. This is a non bartenders. Is a nine. This bows on everybody else finger point my son saved this why it's on everybody it did tell you re lol I don't British ago. They Jiang out. The coffee or call you cab whatever this is where. And it's not just for that vs protection but as for the innocent people and that's why I said thank god he wasn't hurt thank god somebody else wasn't hurt. And this is stupid. He's probably been saying that since he was arrested it's stupid. It's gonna be said for quite some time is stupid I think you make it here. Good point about drunk driver and give it a very good point I think go a lot of us who do not make getting them. Wonder right and it gives natural why wouldn't you get a driver mean their services here in buffalo for less than a hundred bucks they'll drive you when your car home. Right prominent event. So if those of us who make a modest living can afford dad why why wouldn't. I'm making millions of dollars. Be able to do wisely Smart enough to like it could be an ally and just can't think of it it's actually kinda cool it's cooler what is. I drive and a driver shirt very guys' morale was drive and Billy I actually front seat if you. Anyway you know Eagles real fight fifty but yet edged we were gonna guys guys wait it wants a dummy or second I wanna bring this up and not the name drop but. Years ago. A late friend of mine and I knew we had a chance to play golf when Els group. And it was if you think you're a school play golf fails to for your right it was great and Alice Cooper almost died from. Alcohol poisoning. Just he that's what he did view as an alcoholic he's still is now called he consumed himself with golf instead of alcohol. But in this is when the time we play golf way this this'll show real far back it was Britney Spears is arrested for DW wired do you why. And his comment was I don't understand. How these young celebrities don't have drivers he goes you know I was a mess. And we had to and we called it drinking club boy we all drivers I tape my guide me you mentioned the new season got paid my guy. Enough money more than enough money. And his job was to get me home to the bar and back. Now set and a story while it so I don't Hussein it so it's a valid it is a valid criticism in question. I think. Of people have the means why do you not get a driver if you know you're gonna go out and have a good time. Well I'm not ready to say I'm not ready to say that the guy should be. You know. Publicly. Crucified you know like that that wouldn't that's not. But anyway while nobody wants it Chris I'm but he ease salt and he's opened himself to what he's going back to your right and now he's opened himself up the criticism and that's his own fault so here's what Ryan Reilly needs to do now. OK speaking from experience. What what I would expect. A role models I I know all. It will take time for it to seep out it'll take years for him to attack have this removed from his. Is you know the criticisms. Especially if he doesn't perform. But I hate to add pressure to it but the fact of the matter is this harsh reality of being a pro athlete. But put the Alley. I don't know that he has a drinking issue at all from what I and I don't know wolf from what I understand this guy is like like a perfectionist when it comes to putting stuff in his body so. Find that out first but all I have to say is this. If you're right O Reilly. And you and you wanna make a statement your team in your your management and you wanna own up to this that and NO and and and eight kids can't pay it back through money. Campaign Lexus now in games game suspensions or whatever maybe maybe not I don't know that's up to the management and the team I wouldn't be opposed to either way however. You put the bottle down for good. And you train harder than you are returning. And you come into camp. Head down businesslike. And you go out there you bust your ass. And you play hard. And you don't draw any unnecessary attention to yourself. And you teach your young player Sam Reinhart Jack cycle all those guys. How to how to learn from the mistakes you just made I don't guys I played with guys that have made mistakes across the board. It doesn't and I'll tell you what they'll talk about. They'll share it with. They won't come on the radio when sharing with everybody they might not share on a golf tournament. With the force and they don't know all but if they're trying to help you don't go shared same thing. Same thing pack Cain was talking about yesterday I shared an experience with him after he had had an incident. You know I even even after that after going give a kid advice you know all other things crap happens. You know crap happens and I want I want him he's he's he's going to pay for this legally however he asked do whatever fines or whatever it. A judge judge decides. And that might be enough but I'll tell you he's paying for this right now. East pay Kevin. This kid is beating himself up I'm sure his father's in his face about it I'm sure his brother's in his face about it. His brother has to answer questions now I put my brother and situation once for he had to speak on my behalf. Awful. It's awful because now you have to have I'd Darcy had to speak Lindy I had every like there was it doesn't matter what one's. And it sucks and it's public and people are bearing UN they don't even know what's going on. They don't even get it but eight it's easy to pile on. From behind a keyboard it's easy to pile on with your buddies at home too easy to do. But he should see how you wanna see what makes. T a team a team watch how he walks into his locker room how those guys guys. Receiver when he comes it. They are gonna laugh out of and they architecture America they'll say Smart out. You know whatever and then they're gonna watch and go to work and they're gonna want new they're gonna wanna see the what he's learned from mr. gonna they're gonna be watching what he's learned from this they're gonna watches every move. Well I guess is to bill many of whom will have some don't strive forum that's able to drive if they're gonna. Mean they're allowed to go and have a good time. It's just be responsible with it and that goes for everybody in society. What's grab a quick phone call before the break here. As you know I can't do get a desk and Chris Baker's gonna join us. We come back he's one is and thoughts of some development prospects we'll talk more of this bright ducked the Jonas to. 1115 here at sabres hockey Allen at WGR. During this struggle the last few years but you know being around the people of coaching staff player development people everybody. On successive months of pretty quickly and they can see oh not really tough but demanding in and they expect a lot of you here in. You know they're also very studio lot nothing's nothing's given but you're here and everything and I think that does a really good mentality and that's that's a recipe for success. Hi Jack Geico. Savers. Draft pick this year you know slight white royally annoyed by the that broadcast so you know Jack Nicholas. Thousand development camp we've been talking Ryan Riley's. Arrests in Canada. On impaired driving charge we will get back there that. I'm more because. Frankly it's a big story and it's an unfortunate story. And personally decide the largest contract in sabres history. One that them. Were all more concerned about and as I mentioned a little while ago when I first saw the news last night my reaction. Really. And I'm also thankful that nobody was injured. That we know of I'm with us. I that's the blessing. Here that nobody was injured. And oppressive the blessing in this is that it makes us all pause to think and not just athletes but everybody. Pause to think when you've had a drink two or three or four. At whatever that is all Asia responsible with it. About getting a ride to. Or go from the diner in Spain there for few hours. Treated coffee until you're sober. Call somebody for a you know the ICI got the stuff you know works all the obvious stuff. It was long he'll get behind that we are creek Chris Baker's this year sabres prospect dot com soul posit that conversation for a moment. Because where the golf tournament yesterday with so many star studded guest Sammy Chris bigger and fit the mold there but your clothes chorus you're working your way up a hump. Els terrible story. Belied your wrap of the development camp. The players that. You thought really shine that branch for the obvious players. Yeah you know I think that we actually. I sort that we worked hard. A lot of growth in players Euro a year especially acute. That comes out of the arena last year have a lot of guys like Justin Daly current apple. Bob you know it has gotten bigger stronger shot over the course of the season. In Kitchener and of course inquiry with the heat up front side that you guys have shown the ability to score goals. You know that already scored that Friday night scrimmage and side of the net. Are you can look at calculation may get a little confused on that play the what the report calls score knowing what to one of these. The net. And open up it's a great play and that's and it seemed confused gotten back scoring goals and I was really impressed with is it cool. You can how to cook the working and Jim. And again we got apple over the course last week but it's here. You know again come to light among his peers and that's notable of course there's a camera but we expected him right hurt. To command and shine and show everyone that he has these young compared with a Carl. But the work and then you lose he was just it was incredible and thoughtful ways. But of course on the reentry to leave you to. The two nights in depth news competing all the guys who bought our right at the very at a camp and I was so it's really encouraging she reaching. A wanna ask you about just have no idea I talked of about that I wasn't at the scrimmage but I saw the highlight of the goal. And he'll admit to you that he tripped at the side of the that he fell over and he says I said. Good thing your roof that otherwise you would have been not sure pretty hard for that but you're absolutely right his ability to stick with the park and but. What's what are we expecting from him this year I I. No disrespect to the kid. I think Rochester has is name all over it but I think he has a shot to be impact full in the American League and I I was talking to guys yesterday we talked to Terry Martin. Kevin yesterday and I think everyone downplays. The yet but the talent and how good the American league hockey. Truly is. Ya I wanna keep compared with the veterans cinnamon on the farm to continue what does not going to gain chemistry that. Someone can help them learn a complete game late in the need to play to succeed. That the NHL level like and that he hasn't got a frame you have to shoot even skating to achieve you to guidance to the a lot of guys latitude especially accurate. They experience a lot of pop in particular. But you have to click complete. You know while the law to wondered what game and that's why I think and being played with a lot of the veterans that they've added so our opponent to adopt. Donna Rochester Utley and help you know he might be on a two year Rochester clan believe it or not. Because Yucca gonna take time there's going to be guys ahead of inevitably coming up contract of course earned their right to do their sabres and. Meanwhile it's a luxury. To have the time to develop players like that he's not a rock mayor Daley. But he does have a lot of skilled and does need to continue developing that you need to realize. How big and strong. He can beat not just on the pop up a lot of guys opposite and that's going to be very detrimental it is except number of people. Yeah I know the player at any player not just about any player. Hates hearing that two years I mean they they want it today and they want to tomorrow this year or next year but. You're right I think the best interest of a kid like this. Is after two years why he is going to be in and his familiarity with. And comfort level with the pro game and his own strength. And the strength of the his opponents. That will be where it I'd feel he is going to be able to make the most impacted the most noise an end best opportunity I think to. You know bush shake into the roster some. Yet you know coupon but Terry Martin talking about the added that American League such an important point and now of course I never experience that actually would indicate. It's a significant lead in competition going on here really to DHL. And it it's executed. Two years made it really master. To slow that he. And then covenants that are here retention level you know maybe really take a quality ethnic and Ebert are. He's right on track as far as I'm concerned. We can make at their earlier over it's great to get a taste for the lead at the end of he needed to the call up and he reported per artwork. Because he's very passionate about working with him to have much success unlike that's great you know that that's an important point. Yup and and that's but that's proper development I mean like enough of this eighteen year old kids got to make it ariz dark like. If samurai heart doesn't truly play in the any challenge he'd hate hearing this too. Till he's 21. That's to me that's Smart and if he's not ready is what I am saying there's no sense enforcing these guys. You know for a guy to command 2324. We don't see that anymore I don't know why we have to think that if these guys haven't made it by twenty. They're bus I was talking to somebody yesterday somebody referred to a 29 year old unrestricted free agent has all. I'm like what. Compared to who like to eighteen year old phenom that come into the league like what do you old. Yeah that's a the different you know could get it it's a different. Stayed in the game that we're dealing with now I'm up for reshaping itself went. And not breathing entitlement for young kids using the system and got caught the work and not have them brought in the development at the rate. And I'll admit that she's. Can make it up and make patch of the NHL level a year earlier than Justin Daly or vice Versa that's not indicative of the other ones. Well futures a chapter like that that kind of where there are of course. Yup could depend on the position at that particular needs that are are out of laughter but you know getting back to camp and what we want last week Bailey was a guy that. I'm looks ready to actually no make that transition. And inexperienced keep in value to achieve McCain didn't by the way it was. A little bit older when he you know under the age children but I'm not important I think that Stanton to reelect G and that's it's a social media. And out everything happened. Problem but now it doesn't have to happen now you want McCain to win build a club properties that it's very important to keep them. I'll tie another thing that mr. Martin mentioned yesterday and it goes along with something and it here Rosen a slate of name dropping. To daily care and Danny gare mentioned on this show that Mark Messier said to him after he won four Stanley cups. It takes character to win and you know what the American Hockey League does. It ate it it turns boys into men. If you've talked about entitlement what you you learn and build character riding that bus practicing two hours a day. And playing in instead of Florida small ray fans and dump the arena's you know like stuff like that. That is how you build character and you appreciate. Truly appreciate when you make the National Hockey League other than these some of these young kids who aren't the generational players that don't have the the appreciation for it just beats back like indicators adore us on the cal Gregor ankle those kind. Those kinds of mind sets and there's a lot more not just those two guys and they're not just Russians. I now know that I yet to let point parents are not appear at the winning cultures are and are. We can happen and we'll bury its we have in Grand Rapids organizations can Murray's done at. The intent. It's important to investing all the veterans pay them a couple 100000 dollars to beat air. Just like Matt Ellis and you're important and it is yep two years for daily use it okay. Got you talking bill we're talking like just that that general development guy who's not a first overall. Right right. We are we late but I'm gonna ask you one more question anyways here and WGR 550 buffalo. No enhancing surprise he signed with Carolina and not go back to Boston College.
