She won hockey talk. She understands. Why the studios and deluge PR's Sports Radio 515 PC sabres hockey hot. Which Kevin Sylvester. Peterson you wanna talk hockey you wanna talk savers and call texture between Kevin right now 716803. Five feet. Welcome back second hour sabres hockey hotline I'm Andrew Peters and for Kevin Sylvester Matthew caller. Taking manager Peter seat today. Mediocre job of course bus Braden on the call back there doing nothing as usual. And back caller higher going to be talking obviously sabres hockey game last night mats Gunner recap. Or not recount look forward to some of the games on the docket and I even though he stands not. Involve the sabres. Percy Hartman we get myself back on a stock and sell pop unjust is also means how to pat just gonna join us big news one hour the bills Percy Hartman and Tyrod Taylor we're gonna. Gonna get his. Well let's talk let's talk first about something you and I were talking in the break and you brought up the possibility of taking Evander Kane and Jack eichel and breaking them up and who we would wanna decide to play it. Together and what we wanna do there and we both have the same thought. That two on one last night with a Evander Kane and Jack eichel. The two guys are super talent it. And they're both top draft picks and the people make plays or score a little it's different skill set but powerful big and fast. That they just don't seem yet to know how quite to work with each other on these plays and I thought with Evander Kane. That touch the puck there are pure shooter let's do that here. I'm not teaching Evander Kane how to score I'm just saying shoot it you're a shooter that's you know here. I love that you can make a passport if you look at the goal you scored later you are a sniper. Shoot anywhere. Anywhere net blog site scores I'm sure it vendor was at 211. In the second period short hit it. And Michael came down it was a 201 and Michael shot it then there was the power play also earlier where I call. Had the puck at the top of umbrella if you wanna call it that McCain was kind of drifting to the top of the circle and had a stick up for the one timer. Michael being right he could've given that park to Cambridge you know all in Michael's head. That that coach is saying get that part to the net yeah two bodies in front. Yeah of Cain there for the you know for the for the defenseman I have to TN Hahnemann kinda take them away and focus on them but they just risked the park through. It just gets through I would like to see in the past that he could have made that pass the same time. I like that the park got to the net. Because Michael has such a great shot to it's not that eichel is it's just some sort of you know pass first Kiley we've seen is shot already on display and it was one of the things that. Scouts talked about is him having better than economy David comparatively. Is that shot and I'd like to see. You mean you can only have so many guys that are going to shoot the puck every time you're you're breaking in whether it's two on one recycling or anything else. And if I've got to shoot first guys I think that can be. A little bit difficult so even though I'd love both of their size and power and ability did you make make life difficult on any defenseman who are really great skaters. I was thinking about right harp playing with a Evander Kane because he is soul much a pass first guy. Let's continue to tease this topic even even longer let's skip over over to sell compact Joseph for a minute because we gotta talk to Sao about. Do the buildup to cornerbacks and can the other one help the team win this weekend who's gonna score touchdowns Percy Harmon Tyrod Taylor go. Well. You're gonna have a tough time I think you know scoring a lot of points considering all the guys that are out pursue our and obviously we don't know is if situations though you know he's playing. Seeing a lot in is out humor he's Goodwin as I can stretch the field that. He is are placed on injured reserve the good is this LeSean McCoy explained I think he's a big help. And they still Charles Oakley who's having a really. Really buying your appetite and EJ Manuel gets a chance to go against the injury is his former coaches former offensive coordinator of the people who benched him. Four games in the last season and an officer as a professional athlete you know a lot about you know how much that probably will motive in this. His former back up to Jeff tool I mean obviously that's not made of motivating factor now okay. Sell the latest on Percy Harvick and there are conflicting reports I believe is the proper terminology we've gotten reports. On one side saying that he's contemplating retirement and then on another side saying he's just frustrated by injuries what's the bottom line on Percy heart. Bottom line is right now it seems frustrated himself. And he said you know where right now actually responsible a couple of questions and there are conflicting reports. At least actually considering retired gotten. I don't doubt 12 person is frustrated owned. Stay healthy get on the field this seems like. His car if he's actually contemplating retire it's our hope that sounds better idiot actually contemplating retirement or anything there's. In other some. Got a conflicting reports as far as that's concerned because recruit she was the first report that he was now here's the thing I heard that same thing yesterday but. I was comfortable enough with reporting it because it wasn't really from a solid source on my hand so I didn't and then when evicted. I thought OK I guess that's right and then at a Shepperd give out so well that's not really right but he is frustrated you know here's the bottom line from me. I think that you know when Europe. Highly two professional athlete but your body is he your lifeblood. Everything ear it's what you make your living with when that starts to break down with it doesn't feel right you get frustrated enough for you probably throw your arms up at some point say it was this all worth it or not. And that's probably what Percy harvest going through right now maybe to some people that means he's contemplating retirement at some people he's not but I'm I think. Maybe we should just allow proceed carbon they kind of sift through all of this in hopefully he does within the next two weeks because that's when the bills will be offered in their back on the plane. OK so if the bills and I say if because there are a lot of injuries and I I don't know how they match up against Jacksonville I'm I'm I'm convinced they're better team but. Can they got this win now. Sell yeah they can't mean lucky talking about a 15 team. They'll still have. Plenty of talent especially on the defensive side yet Kyle Williams is out with guys you know corpsman right stuff and Charles are very good linemen and they can use in a rotation there with them. I you're talking about the only other injury and defense release Aaron Williams. But you know I think the bills that are are very comfortable with the personnel they have on that side of the field in considering the playing a team that's the fourth lowest scoring team in the leak. Only eighteen point whatever points a game. What Jackson we'll scoring right now and Blake portals he's got some nice things as a second year quarterback but he also threw a lot of interceptions he threw three last week. I think if seven overall this year so there are some opportunities and I think this is the kind of game where you lecture defense do its got to do. You run the ball well off allowing you to make a few throws here there he doesn't have to win the game reportedly doesn't lose it for you. You get out of there with a low scoring victory and then you hope you get healthy and that two weeks to come back home are you ready for Miami. South about your checking him this from London for a let you go sale. The storyline has become the injuries and now Percy Hartman but. I think it would have been comments of that were made about Rex Ryan's defense by some of the star players on the defensive side. I'm going into this week he coming off that loss to the Bengals. Do you feel like we move past that at this point and I don't know is is Rex gonna feel so real pressure to start send him blitzes when it comes to facing. The jaguars week. I don't think he's gonna feel pressure to send blitzes but I think that he himself is reevaluating you know how they that uses some guys in that might just get him to aid. You know we're gonna do that in fact I'll be honest I don't know it's about blitzing it's more about letting the front four in a way after the quarterback and that's not tablets such a single play football and I think that's what he's gonna do. Interestingly today Dennis Thurman. He seemed a little odd Edger edgy I should say about that whole line of questioning he talked to the media today in a dentist doesn't speak. Very long anyway he doesn't like to be in front of the media I don't think it'll get that impression a lot. But today he was asked if he basically said look this is about people stats this is about winning games I'm I'm concerned about points given up at about getting to the quarterback. But no it was pointed out to him that day getting to the quarterback will help in you know. Points given up and it will. Allow for less points given up let you know he said this is just about playing well everybody's got to play well whether it's front four back seven or whatever and I and I understand that or he's coming from so. I do expect some sort of change in philosophy this week. But the bills defensive coaches have been around awhile guises of veteran staff. David do what they've been doing. Very successfully for many many years so I don't expect that it just you scrap everything and go to the drawing board but. I expect them though this week to tweak a few things that allow their front four to kind of pin their ears back a little bit more than half. Just win that's how the saying goes right just absolutely cell we thank you and thanks for the update angry stuff aren't these guys aren't soccer back to joining us from over in the okay. Yeah we're gonna ever call here. We're gonna have a call here. We're gonna fill in the car. Or on the sell this well if I can read it read the card here and glad moves Jos actual anger stop stalking Leo glad that. You know we honor yeah we go ahead. Okay look at there's no question have look at this team are victors of noticeable pro street particularly in pop action but. This is serious notice or GAAP to me that going forward in the apps and particularly. The defense's ability to skate Carrie caught. At supplement the opera like it I get that feeling and how are as keen that the Pollard and do victory Diop to set the market much improved. Any offer it to all the wanna look at that the fans meant it seems like they're just protecting against an odd man rush out of resolve. They and inability to jumping and accelerator Wheeler at the point jump into the play. Concerned Maine which present this opportunity. Would they consider moving you know slipping somewhat there strength that they up positions are relying party during internal oily and ordering up. Or somebody's good young puck moving defenseman Mike Bryan Murray or more here alarms pop those the guys that are shopping to meet. It's a huge gap. If you want a supplemental folic you've got to get some puck moving defenseman and they don't have it and in Ku leads what is a couple years away. We think there. I don't know what the extreme is that I would go to get a defense I think that any time he could added defensemen fell to bolster your deal is huge and yet you're right the sabres do need that guy. But. I don't I don't know I don't moccasins that Rask was is that dire right now our mark classic is that guy right now but I think those guys might have the ability to beat those guys. Down the road. I was talking about this. Do you move viewed you look at moving a guy like Sam Ryan Hart because of your death like he says to bring in that key guy. I don't I don't know I mean. Not right now not right now now that. Defenseman that he named only modest back on and they love him in Pittsburgh he's gonna be one of their franchise players Adam Larson's name has been thrown out there on the trade block. And he's interesting to me from analytic standpoint he's got really good numbers. And they seemed to not. Love him for one reason or another. Which may be it's a bad fit may be they've asked too much of a -- no he's a former top pick of the fifth overall purpose of life yep fourth or fifth and you know there it's been ups and downs I thought he had a really good year last year with New Jersey but then there was rumors about. The possibility of him getting traded the quickest defense shaping out to me. I think we're in give it time rescuers were still lying in in my mind is a true number one defenseman not yet. But he will be an eagle on all the way he's played the last few games. I don't think he was spectacular last night but I thought he was spectacular when they went to Florida and that he can do that more consistently as he goes along. How sick is a top four defenseman that I wouldn't wanna move for much Zach Bogosian is coming back he'll fit in nicely. And Jake McCabe is just starting his NHL career I think he's fit in really well. I mean he's surprised me through a lot of people don't have big complaints about where they're at right now I think you just let it grow and we're always thinking his fans how we improve our team to retreat so let's look. But does with that with this group you know I mean it it that's given a little bit of time to see I think everybody knows that. It's it's a tap in this day that they could use a puck moving defenseman. That and it's almost like saying we needed two cents. Yeah everybody. Every team needs all of wrecked Miller's all every team like like him to. Click edit defense the scores twenty goals on the worst team in hockey Elmer Myers what a spectacular player but. It'll do what they haven't crystal line so they don't have a guy like that. They don't have a twenty goal scorer from the Blue Line because there's like three of them like Shea Weber you've got Eric Karros is gonna put up eighty points and Pacman large to give put up sixty points a few guys who can do that. But Bristol line and is more like it Drew Doughty where it's. Thirty points forty points and dominance all over the ice and he brings a physical presence at six foot four that most don't it's. I don't have a big complaint about where there had I think like you say everyone needs more quality defenseman. But as they growing gel I think it's gonna look better and better as we go along and I was also very happy with how burning goalie looked him. I have for the second. My next point because he says 1120 you're gonna run down here. How excited they are about to all this law I just wanted to point of all right Hart came. That we we've been tedious and Huff we've been procrastinating on and we started to get there we we I just think that I just think that maybe eichel. And Cain are maybe trying to satisfy each other's needs too much and be too unselfish. You know I mean like. Passing the puck too much or you know where a guy might be told to shoot all guys told issue but he still try to force that passed because. You don't wanna seem selfish or maybe you are maybe a little snake snake snake bitten but. End of the day I think a guy like Reinhart who doesn't doesn't need to score goals past first pass first guy makes him and his passes her. Unbelievable. Soul you imagine a guy like Wright hurts cross ice passing. Overdue and Evander Kane just whipping up the wings through the middle thank he would be a nice beautiful sight to see but. And and I wouldn't even mind seeing Ryan O'Reilly and Evander Kane get a shot together too because Ryan O'Reilly not even always say these two way player to a player to player. But his skill is more on the pass side. Then shoot outside and he's a guy you expect to score eighteen goals one Eagles maybe but get. 35 or forty assists and that might work better when your playing with Evander Kane who put seven shots on goal last. And you have to. Look at San Reiner who's the dish here and then you have O'Reilly and Cain who are the other two guys that actually. They'll initiate the contact right Reilly. Right heart's not going to. Shy away from the contact it's it's like it's. It's eight to Los ease it's easy for us that we can put anybody together and were the coaches but it's. I I wouldn't know this sounds sounds nice I just wouldn't mind seeing some more. You know players get their chance to play with Michael I guess is is over getting and then. OK I can't complain when there's a two on one I mean they keep getting scoring chances Canaan and Michael you figured that. The finish them off but there has been some like should I should they issued user of this Eurostar well Eurostar to it that's. Yet I wonder how if they mixed it up with Michael it would look but and we we've got to be impressed with just the number scoring chances than. I don't know break into given me like around the NHL music might. That's them there like what do we have any good that we. The organ. It's classic. Great games on the schedule tonight at any rate if you wanna jump in on some of these before you jump in right don't we Sharon changed music. Don't you. Of the organ it is due to him or against my aunts distracted by the rate organ music. Dallas Stars in Pittsburgh Penguins Sidney Crosby had three point stylish agony and Jeannie better awesome. I want us to be like 65. Dallas already shut out Pittsburgh in the first game of the year this year. While. Who was. Just dropping some hockey knowledge on a threat is it to nothing when I think right rate is three. Excuse me you can postmark not not bad. Not very many Dallas Clark shut out last year at least ten million goal that you and now they should be shutting out every game this is that due clear vs his old team or the handle game the hot yeah notes are going to play the Rangers which I'm kind of excited about that even though like. I don't think Arizona's. Real. But if you're talking about tuning into the game to see entity player Max they'll that's pretty cool how about the struggle and ducks. The ducks at all but there at the 131. And they're playing the reds who have a great coach and good team and obviously teams with Cody hots and just win. And so creditors. I think Boudreau as a Nazi death I don't wanna see him go I'd like Boudreau I'd like to see him get the job done but I I don't know all of the players are gonna do it for quite what else does have the feel like the capitals like they had their chance they didn't do it then they sort of gave up on putra. Carlyle and talked about going. Out and I'll you are speaking of coaches exports. It's the coach's first game against Minnesota it's going to be watching now while they're often its partner 31 and one and the jackets 07 though they played the coach yesterday. Panthers and hawks. Alexander park outlooks rate tiger capitals and conducts. Often it's RT 31. And help out there its products and said. Capital's mayor on the Canadian here and in the oaks. Kings sharks and the sharks are buying my team this year. And picking them to surprise everybody in the wise. And go to the top line finally day will break through and it got off to a good start there for two and well. Mark Jones has played very well for them he's been great is Paul Martin back voice sound. Oh. You've got to turn your cheers you can look at it in I had the sharks winning last year the company and you make the playoffs like I just could not go back to the well on them again. I thought they kind of gave up on the coach had some injuries and its leadership problem all you media guys blaming these players are giving up on their coaches. They go out that they coach gives up on the play. Gets fired it off from being this delete hominid team would like. It's 56%. Accorsi percentage and you're all about the stats when the total goes up there a stack is she says you're all scrutiny. You're on your own last year they dropped below 50%. Everything's going wrong but they still had a lot of the same talent. It just screamed. Get a better goal lead then Niemi and the Emmy had a bad here yet another defenseman Patrick wal mart's huge difference maker there. And a new coach and you'll take off. Still all as I mean I might be a total bust in this election. But that's my sort of benign as the odds are in that favor it's a good night for we will be right back here and a few minutes. Rainier sabres hockey hotline WGR Sports Radio 550. You know I think it just shows that you know we continue aquarium Wear them down and play the piece you play it to be on fox you know we can come back Hillary likes and get down. Our first shift of the game you know our line is on the wolf her on this the goal against and for F averaged a plane and get shots and chances and my guess the following one when in the third period in couple life back ability even though accurate elements along with the shoe. Welcome back. Sabres hockey hotline I'm Andrew Peters you're just tuning in Kevin's office Matthew caller joining me Braden on the controls back there and that was bust Evander Kane. Yes I was Evander Kane right there talking a little bit about last night's game real quick. You wanna talk about Larson enemy of your of things to get through year by it with Evander Kane. Obviously he has bunny ears we kind of know that that he feels of people writing he knows of people are saying about him which. Is fine and some guys handle that well some guys they'll. What do you think of the fact that he tweeted that after the game. When he scorers and they win and they ease if you didn't hear about it a writer basically called the trade Abbas for the sabres which is. I can't possibly know yesterday today and you know what they with a straight face and. Our list of regardless of the article. I I I think that. I think it's okay. If if players sometimes fire back because you know what there are times where players are muted when people are are. Are chopping and I think that every now and then. A player with a little intelligence that can can you know carry the swagger on the ice and in shuttle where the sun don't shine. I like when they fire back and you know what else I liked about his comment his tweet I should say. Is that he said night it would I'm paraphrasing here because what what did we say again he said nice that way to bust through with the win OK it's. I like that he said boss through with a win. Because if you lose that game last night he's a nice to bust out of a scoring slump in all kinda look selfish if he if he says nice to bust out with a big goal. You know by the fact that he said the win. Kind of took it one step further and and I just I I to me it says a lot I maybe if I'm I'm. Over thinking it overstating it I'm sure that anybody that would national writes an article probably thinks I am but I'm saying that. You know what. Good for Evander Kane good for him and I think more player should do it. Because I anti something if you don't push back sometimes in this business being an athlete to some guys that will push you around the whole power of the and thing. An Italian. Athletes now have power in the on the social media world to and they have a little they can write something in context sometimes it's done sometimes it can be. You know nice and I like what he did last I don't care I think it was good it was Toronto it's all in the heat of competition it's spirited it's passion it's fire. And anyone that has a problem that just doesn't understand sports. If there is a fine line between making fun column that is patently absurd which has Damien Cox has ones. And I apologize flies and it. Well I don't know that it but today it's just it's now I don't even need to Regis that to spousal too premature are only there is a premature but of course he's got to take shots at Vander for. Going to a baseball game all times are rendered out he went to watch baseball. Applause I I just doesn't. It doesn't make any sense it's so unfair that comes off his personal it's so ridiculous to compare it to the foreign trade like all these things across the board. It's outrageous that it was written so in decades. Have a problem with the commander Cain. Make it a little fun on the side go like it's this guy I'm gonna come out tonight and I'm gonna put up that he doesn't play hard all the time I'm or put a little extra. You know an I'm gonna make sure I score tonight as shove it up this guy you know and he didn't do itself which he was trying to make plays to other players the Ike was almost like at times came was. Too unselfish he was I mean he differs Ike element to on one where we wanted him I want to shoot his whole teams they could shoot his marriage is coach is probably saying shoot Jimmer is up there yelling shoot probably but I will say if you let everything about you all the time which Evander Kane leads the league and ridiculous reports about him tweeting in. Going to baseball games and other things that I just don't think happened to most other. Hockey players why. If you let everything Bob. That it can be problematic if you. Take an article used as motivation make fun of the guy slam dunk Doolittle you know sort of like you know it. When a guy it'll say it's all of that is stared out right you post rising diet and you just like why you you know try to block it again guy who I just dumped on your face. I think that's good I like a little brash as there especially the type of player he is the goal scorer like he needs that sort of swagger. Sit back and wait for opportunities he's trying to create and he's he has jam he plays with a ton of it finishing checks the speed the fore check. Loves to throw the park way Adam. And going get it they'll they'll throw it to himself or scare up the boards is boom gone. I do think though all. There is a fine line with that because it you we know that they're going to be things said on social media this thing can be said by writers art stuff that on our air waves. That are going to be critical as we go along here. You can't get away with here in the National Hockey League herb get away from and I mean there's always going to be people are analyzing you this fan base wants to win. And if you have a stretch three don't score. People are going to start looking at you and saying all right it's been X number games with what's pucks in the neck is that's your job editing not doing the little things he's an idiot if you didn't score last night I still would have come on here with conviction and said I think Evander Kane played a great hockey game last night. Played hard finished jacks he shot he tried to make a pass I hated that he tried to pass that eichel. And I'm sure Michael sinking shoot it through but regardless. I love what he's trying to do I love what he is doing whether he's putting the puck in or not getting chances. I love the way he's playing as an overall game to. I think what I'm getting at is if you let everything bother you that isn't quite fair in your mind. Then that can be to your detriment I'm thinking about Ryan Miller with this. That there are a lot of things said about Ryan Miller that were true there are a lot of things that were set a bottom that were just come on I mean the whole. It's easy to eat I mean is just the quintessentially. Ridiculous. Conversation is a guy like while he sort of is what he is and whether you wanna call leads are not but it would always get. Wrote in his face well you were good the one time and you're not beats and like. If you're Ryan Miller I think at times it let it got to him it bothered him and there were a few times where it may have affected him. On the ice. That it was in his head sometimes. And if you get to that point that's where you could have a bit of problems so well I do like this and with the whole world is laughing at this guy with the so. I don't wanna stick it on a regular basis I don't wanna see him score tomorrow night two goals and and you know let it go it's over I think that that's kind of I like what you're saying we got a lot talked about Larsen for you know 56 and order pick on the guy because I I like his game last night but there were two plays that I saw where I'm sensitive about I know. But I don't care and I'm kidding I know what I understand I liked is I like this team. There were two plays there that if I'm thinking if I'm Dan miles when I'm there and pointing out of sync America show you two plays some last night that I am not happy making anymore. It was the one where he came across the Blue Line he had the parking his backhand he opted not to get it deep. OK I understand. CA learn from it and then there was the play in his next shift after that was really good really that he was flying which is great you wanna see guys come out with a little bit of fire after they make a mistake. That's the great thing about piles guy makes a mistake gives him another opportunity doesn't make you wait fifteen minutes. On any makes another one coming down on the boards might in the same period. Couple shifts later stamina on the wing turns up in the American League if he's playing there and you could turn up 20 Drake sauce past. Do whatever you want it but in the NHL that park past BD. Has to get down below the goal line because if you're turning up that means guys are crossing the line with speed of guys across the line was beaten your standing still parked. And you don't have a shot on net no one's there were two of the park go. In the corner. You know one of the things I think about with Larson is just how much adaptation. Has. Instead of turning the puck over at the line you'd just need to. Gated in and get the live to fight another today because if that part of your job back a 160 feet. That team the team loses the game I think that absolutely Ares momentum or any kind of energy your wife that the players had. There at home I'd turn over you have. 8000 leaf fans they're cheering so you're kind of thinking let's not give them any life. But. There will be times that Larson has an upscale. And defensive abilities nationally to balance out other lines where he's going to want to make plays and we saw the end last year how good he can be I've seen it in Rochester for a few years. That he can't be good setup man he can't finish at that at times so he's gonna have to I think adjust to whatever it is that he's asked to do one nightly basis. And like everything else that I guess we'll just easing for awhile and it's true. That will take some time. He needs to stop thinking that he's being charged based on points. Yeah he's kind of been that guy his whole life I think that I think that when you get this level that might be the hardest thing for some guys to let go. So all. But it. We're gonna get to break here we're gonna be right back we have now five minutes we'll carry out this conversation. Feel free to call an 8030551. Triple A 550 to 550. We'll see you right back here a few minutes sabres hockey allied WGR Sports Radio 550. It's usually. Her first our group I think you know really had a good game there in Tampa and I've had a hard time scoring goals here but we've been playing really well and you know it's it's something we can build off of them. Enjoy its name and the important that we can. Well about a favorite variety let me do my job your Mac to had jobs finally excited he's got me excited well you know what path. It says about the went but listen this guy's this guy deserves a lot of credit and he's not a test tomorrow we don't know if we're gonna see. The big man. At this movie something interest thing to watch is. Dan miles most said it will see another goal. In back to back that he's not going to play Chad Johnson back to back he did not say Nathan little. Who has been serving as the backup did not say it would be little in it that would be the other goalie Peter Sarah's car routed the curry Ramo is on the waivers I think it still noon for him to get picked up he hasn't gotten picked up yet. And I know that Emery said he wants to be patient here. There's a possibility. Even I guess that they could go with line is all mark who's off to a really good start in Rochester that they can move him up to starting game. Instead of Nathan loin. I don't know what they're gonna do here I would not have hated it if they get picked up car rob. I would have hated it. Only you need them because I think it gives you the opportunity. To. Try some of these other goalies they can talk all mark may be Lu Lan but I just like that gives Johnson the net no easing control the net now. What he does sort of here's one thing and I think tomorrow it's going to be true true test if we do see Johnson and it'll be itching to see I mean I think a lot of tomorrow is going to come down to coaching and how Dan miles man gets his team to play. Against Montreal how do you solve Carey Price and we're gonna talk more about this tomorrow but. Yet to start the idea you're starting to prep today whether your are on the ice for your in the video rumor here. Whether they had a complete day off it doesn't matter your connect you're starting. That preparation whether you're at home relaxing as a player obviously tuning in the hockey outline. Your getting ready for. I get your preparation on its the blood movement there I'm Alan did you see his saved Carey price's save. I'm Sidney Crosby. A few nights ago just like he is unbeatable right now and the thing about Montreal is last year. I think they were a bit of a paper tiger because they had Carey Price and it's unbelievable hash it ask year. But the rest of the team was there. This year. They'll Chan yuk he's taken a real. Like top role with them and stepping up and he's nearly a point per game player. And they've added some nice players around including Torrey Mitchell who's become a pretty good role player they were there praising Kory Mitchell about his last game of Grady one I thought he I saw some of that game I thought he played really well they've added to the depth of that team. And they might be for real they might be more this year. Then just Carey Price and I also think one thing we never factor in with players or coaches is just. They you get a reputation and then people think that that's that you are for ever. But Michelle Terry has been known as kind of an old school coach not up with the analytics but. I've seen some changes in the way that they're playing the game from last year where you might be seeing him. Making adaptations to the rest of the league and if they do that would this illegally and don't Chan yuk is a franchise player. They could be a serious contender Natchez now but I mean for for quite some time. All right final thoughts they're from Jack handy and firing a final final thoughts right here are. Cotchery should be suspended for that hit on Evander Kane. You know all I do I think he was aiming for the head no but that's the fly by shoulder to the chance that you see when it was a player has a stick out it's the Louis Ericsson textbook every twenty games it's more an example how not playoff hockey. You don't hate guys like that you cannot afford come across at their jobs Zack and all the needs to be suspended to Terry in Philadelphia as. History of concussions he. Beilein forum. And now could series hurt in return so. These kinds of hits means you're going to be consistent with the be consistent with it we're gonna be consisting get out of here on time to talk more about this tomorrow right here sabres hockey hot line ten to noon WGR Sports Radio 550.
