Yeah. I hit a six hour Jeremy Matthew with you here on WGR thanks for joining us just a couple quick notes. Warriors are gone for the record tonight. They're playing Memphis at 1030. And if they win they'll set the NBA single season record for most wins with 73. The final game at Kobe Bryant's career is tonight as well lakers who play Utah also attend thirty by the way you wanna watch this. You don't put yourself in your comfy chair tonight starting at say seven. To watch the beginning of the Stanley Cup Playoffs Detroit Tampa's the first game they go watch Rangers Pittsburgh eight. It's a little bit to Chicago Saint Louis at 930 that you got the warriors and lakers games both going on at 1030. Words and ESPN lakers and the AFP into just make a night of it does thing I don't watch all that stuff go one. 8030550. To join us when he wrote for the warriors to win tonight that's our web Paul WGR 550 dot com won't. Hockey fans we notably watch and right we always do well in the hockey ratings in games not involving buffalo. So who would you like to see. Win the Stanley Cup this year whether it's a player. Whether it's coach Lindy whether it's a team whether it's well that if this team wins I liked his style of play be good for the NHL. Whether it's a fan base along suffering fan base which of course the odds. You can let us now industrial by fifty need to to open number 88 by fifty to fight if. Quick follow up to our conversation with a Allan green congratulations to UB. We didn't talk about all that much because it was you know that of the New York thing was their plans there were wrong with but. I hated it for every single minute that existed I know some people did like it sounded like it for me. I thought it was. Horrendous practice it's no other way Iran now can I thought it was an absolute disaster. And I understand there are known for but if there's one thing that I don't speak plays well in buffalo it's hiding that your buffalo. That's the key part it's it's you have to know your market. And I understood. When Danny white unveiled the plan that talked him a few you know we've we've had him on the shall we talked about a number of times about it I understood the reasoning behind it. But you have to know your market. And I think for a lot of people yourself included obvious you've been there long enough and you know I'm not primary but we've been here long enough for a lot of people you felt. Are we the hiding the fact we're from buffalo or something we should be ashamed about that where from buffalo and it was it was it felt like it was us like it. This is a great time to be from buffalo look at everything that happened the last five years look out a look at downtown in the development and all these wonderful things happen. Let's stick our chest out let's be proud that we're from buffalo we went on people to think uh oh yeah you're on the outskirts of New York sit here. Well we're we're here at buffalo on let's be proud about it and I think that for a lot of people. The switch to near Apple's initiative and the huge new York and on the Jersey was. What are we the we got to hide the fact that we're in buffalo this we're not gonna build recruit guys and the weeds. There are gonna come here they're gonna realize we're at the other end of the state. Despite the I think that that irked a lot of people. I liked in new. Slogan New York's public power hubs. That's the way to do it Syracuse and nine Russert he's pretty well Syracuse has gone with New York's college team for a long time and you know for UB to go for New York State was. Raleigh is gonna be second tier to Syracuse but public powerhouse. Changes that right that becomes something that you can own soul. Surely in theory yes it could be the best hobble our our constitution when it comes to athletics in the state absolutely. So while I think that's another nice move logos nice but it looks got to tell. Good for them in the level of New York attitude that they tried to poll was. In other planted New York theme song after they won games look and in a war we trying to pretend that this is New York City. And the other part is having lived in both areas having grown up downstate and having lived here now for. Twenty something years. You know there there's there's a lot of anger upstate towards downstate because it is do you feel like that's where the money goes with Dick was out of the way there or sell downstate that's where our tax dollars go there are sucking the life out of the rest of the state and I mean I know and a lot of it stroke. So that's another reason why. In buffalo you've you've got to know your market you've got to know where your act and there is resentment. Towards downstate and I noticed from your from Syracuse. Felt the same way in Syracuse. Price Phyllis and Wayne Rochester there's a lot of resentment that downstate just sucks money and does everything in this state. So why don't we have to identify with the which is be who we are so I think it's it's a good idea. Is it it'd be nice to see buffalo displayed proudly. And you know it makes sense for the university Matthew was at the press conference yesterday and and he made it. A good point in the break and you can read the article WGR 550 dot com. He got athletics call themselves one thing he got a law school doing this you got the med school do in this you got another school. It's too many it is too much confusion just have one name be Hugh B York buffalo whatever. And make it nice and simple for everybody to date we get a tweet about hockey. Win will you be in hockey yeah yeah show today yeah that always comes and I'm glad that you make appointees are depressed I was gonna say about. The in the entire thing in general as I feel like the way buffalo millions look at. Buffalo is at. Were rejuvenated. Or rising city we get named on a lot of those are rising cities are things and we look at. What's happened downtown and all that and kind of big hopes for it and it always felt like you're trying to paint over. The buffalo part. Yes pretty bad pretty bad timing to go away from that as a time when I pride might be as high as it's been right for I mean pearl on time especially I think downtime and a lot to do with that people feel like. And the city is just in rough shape but. Feeling like we're bouncing back and then at the same time you've got them it felt total death. Like we should this is the time more than any to feel the pride about our city not try to pay no it's a great time than that now you show off. The city and I always tell a story about my brother's been flying in and out here he fought for should now Mets. There so he's been fly in and out of buffalo for I don't know thirty years he can't believe the stuff they always stay downtown he can't believe the changes down there and even even media mattress right you guys you Matthew year you know your your guys are connected with other hockey writers and broadcasters that are common in the town sure there was. We're past the Emerson Needham. And you know what is there to do in this town I don't think we're past that I hope I think I think a lot of people coming are coming and it found. Seeing the development what's happening down there and an understanding. That you know we've we're we're headed in the right direction here saw it again. I think that was part of any kind there was not this was not the time to shy away from buffalo. This was the time to push the fact that your university located in buffalo. Anyway but I'm one of oh yeah hockey and hockey and can you be ever get hockey. But they get about I don't know hundred million dollars for an arena. Yes. They can have. Not much else until they actually actually have a building in an arena. You know Niagara is got a rink and he shoes as a new rink. If you're wanting UB and they should probably wanna have hockey right if if if someone were to give them money for a hockey program my guess is it could be. Successful what's happened in. College Hockey. The growth in College Hockey has been significant note of course that goes with with Penn State. Division one College Hockey has. Experienced major growth from a from a sample of getting talent. And now it's. Is it on par with juniors you can make the case it's better than juniors depending on what road you wanna take. But Jack Michael going to college for a year some guys are gonna go for four years straight could jewel for years North Dakota Jimmy VC with harper. You've got lots of powerhouses in College Hockey that you have regions now quinnipiac has gone from. Nothing. To the national championship game in less than ten years and they've got a beautiful facility that. I think should be the model for every single college like. Buffalo Niagara if you are. In the market four point we need new rink in the new basketball facility go to quinnipiac. Get the price tag on that thing and find a billionaire that went to your school and say can we have one of these. Blame the arena after his quinnipiac is amazing and they're in the northeast hotbed of hockey talent. It's not just beat you with beastie anymore quinnipiac. You know you've got and it's even holy cross and Bentley with these teams that were just the bottom feeders of Atlantic hockey have seen them. An influx of talent kids that can't get into view what's the deal with stays close the hole and he's good too and he may be. In ten meters but at the talent pool here in buffalo is enough that you can just Niagara maybe UB someday down the line of thought. It could grow in a similar way Boston is a big top pocket for that and they've got a bunch of schools and a lot of help I think it will look. You bring your bring up. Quinnipiac. Elite but the yeah the selection in the wrong quinnipiac but it might be quinnipiac whatever one of the day's fast enough and it just works and an argument they're frozen fourth in the just put the new Q did and it's not as always in the spirit in. It's so horrible was very nice it was older but it was. But that's our tickets at this in three athletics program that's playing big time hockey. And I think. Look it makes sense if if I would advise Allan green the first thing you'll get a few doubts at the hockey be great. The field house and the only but they all the institution in the Mac without some kind of indoor facility. Are recruiting you for so you have to get that. And after that then you can talk about let their a lot of reasons why they should do it. You brought up you held the hot to count the area certainly New York State produces some good talent and southern Ontario. So it's your pot for. Think if you start of the division one pock program that you would know the better the idea because you know you've covered that amber for years. Started one hockey pro. Arab League if you could be more successful quicker in hockey then the two and she knew he made to division one football. They went to faxed to division I football were neck and best. You know that some serious downtime and their one football his two year. Two bold it's in the a they've been one way whereas on restarted hockey and both under the NCAA tournament. And can issues has been in the NCAA tournament so oh. Think what we need you know. That's appealing to a lot of fan the fans are saying hey let's get enough. I think you believe. That it's a way to get national notoriety. Competitive with the big time team. You'd be basketball's not going to be part with Kansas this justice UB football's not going to be on par with a Alabama. But don't you ran your hockey program all right you're the tournament and maybe you are quinnipiac or maybe you are alrighty inking a two or frozen four. Shot and I think that's the biggest thing like people talk about that but back to where we are excellent nearby. That's the biggest thing they talked about why you'd be sure that bought. Rank you can't put hockey program in the club team as an art. You can't have a division one hockey program and say play north read the recruiting is going to be the problem tenacious play was playing upstate. I bust my alma mater but come on the division one program recruiting kids I think it was some we're gonna go with the division I school that's our. He can't do. You got to build a facility. Speaking of hockey like a star tonight you've got to 3 games Detroit 10 o'clock range Pittsburgh 8 o'clock. Chicago Saint Louis 930. I was thinking I I I challenged by itself to come up with the worst slash bats. Scenario. That could possibly happen I want you to try and be like okay this matchup the five year. Not exactly TV you can beat this guy this is me wanting to watch figuratively the world Burr on. With the off site to. Tell. I've painted when I believe would be the best in the could ever happen. Which would also be the worst thing you can ever have a panic I don't you're gonna say I'm gonna wanna fight you just for selling you what I don't think I notice gonna save I have an idea just I find a way if you can however you can. To beat this. The Rangers and the penguins. The ranger score. In game seven. Late. To take a Pete and the review it. And it's called back because it's all sides with the tires skate the skate in the air are they checked the blue light jacket they go to overtime the Rangers are furious they think it should accounted. Over time ago in overtime. The Rangers score alone I again. They challenge because of course you're gonna challenge. Week to challenge it challenge a second time. When the league step in the work like that is that you know that's a good question and OK and you know I just demanded I think. What will be working really don't want the second goal to be off side and they can't tell legit. Or I was actually gonna go for goaltender interference review I think you want the second goal to be clearly off sockets but use their chaplains in regular patient all that would be that that doesn't work has been that means there are more challenges what I want to happen but it is there's these people how can I make it to the challenge de Ott is after this year that's what I need I need to challenge to dot all of a scenario that I you're gonna go to is. A team wins. This scores the Stanley cut off funding model I don't I don't in the cup final can be any round first round the Rangers bomb on on the iced the review what they call them back then the penguins score and the reason I pick the Rangers is because I want John tort relic to give the speech afterwards you know if there's anyone that's gonna yell a lot. It's gonna be torts is Columbus. I'm here right by my believing that linking LU complaint CBO and I just which Perot the Rangers. By Darryl Sutter draw the good coach Hank can hit my trying to quit bill. Quenneville you have a lot but nobody to feel that they like psychotic they've won enough but he did a thing Margaret is crotch wanton basketball players. Very trots you could go off he could. And I clutched I was with Matthew I thought I don't say. Team comes out seller like I Gus would noble team comes out celebrating the cop wait a minute we go check the Blue Line or red camera to see whether it was good or not. It it isn't and they wiped out and the neglect on that and. Even if they don't like it out Stanley Cup games DeVon winning goal is scored as the organist and this one at Toronto. We've got the capitals stand by the bench wait and watch in key flash and the guy hole in the cop that. I think I'm gonna bring it up now is gonna get waved on are you sell it or not teams are wondering and that we wait for six minutes while it looked on and add this scenario XP wanna cry your there's and the fans that came my jump up and down to celebrate a couple hugged my. I. Which is eating and in the rough comes out says at the further you go stands accused of the goal it directly at the starlets are. That's everything about it that night everything about is there you brought up the question that I don't know the answer to a night I'm wondering. What does with challenges in overtime in the playoffs. Like today they have blue line can they have you blind camp blue line can't. What is it still is at the same rules you get your one challenge in that sick or in overtime in the Stanley Cup play offs. They automatically view any questionable mine plan. For offside. They just visit the when challenged carries through and you use it when you think you should you. And get code is the answer to challenge a call on regulation or do you think what this game goes to overtime I better not challenge. No incidents. You are is that it's a mental up to the NHL but you don't know what does don't know what it'll be released after the flight I wrote in a couple more it's a Matt hall an that was sent out tell you but there was a memo dated eight role. In April 12 team. We just never actually released to anybody with an Earl memo it's a copy of it. It's. It's not going to. About basketball tickets I don't think it's going anyway. It's worse than anything the sport S. The inability to be happy about a goal and two leadership and that because my country oh lost game six. Or whatever it is new but this is the cup which is will again and tell you it's about getting the coaches shouldn't be in charge. Coaches of the last game but it is coaches ruin the game so the G girl's true I I got dark I did have a thought today I was gonna ask you. What if we had a National Hockey League where we just play occurs and no coaches and yet. With the games be like you got to have GM's right. Before the roster but it's but it gets to the point of it was the truck route commons the total relic comment made me think. So what about pulls at the same thing. It's not a relic common maybe think what if we had no coaches in the N shell who are worried about locking down only needs and shutting down three outbreak and that I thought well you still have GMs and they're gonna wanna I thought Kenya have a league without coaches and GMs because then. The games would be what I'd opening would be people view would be freaking out about the stop you from scoring. I get taxed at that this night arts and mail app is that it's. It's no old. At this time it is a goal all and they call back and it's against Alice in Portland. If the federal bench and have to have a rally abroad have been dealey plaza were JFK was shot in the annual state of all of the talk off the again and I said this once before but it. Did the other anyway. Yeah I do not want long dole is in playoff games get ready for the channel just get ready for the outside of news. Wait for the first double challenge. Where the call on the ice is talent is and then the official look at it and and one unhappy and they used their challenge after the review. They'll be off.

Rangers Pittsburgh 8 o'clock Chicago Saint Louis is at 93 we're gonna fill out our show old. Stanley Cup bracket minute I have a question about Tampa and went right for them. The bill signed linebacker Lorenzo Alexander and safety COLT Anderson both are very good special teams colors. Josh Gordon not re tested by the NFL because of a diluted marijuana tested inching little irony here. Person from Billy with situation. Says that Gordon raised the red like Tony's hosted a press they spoke the condition of anonymity because results of NFL drug tests are not made public. Apparently they are. Yeah attitude we are where the league you know well. Sample collected took traces of Merrill and a deluding substance in its system yanks beat Jay's Mets lost to them Ireland's. And Brian calls or text if I do not mention Baltimore is off to a seven and start those of the WG sports lines next is coming up. At 9 o'clock. Oh playoffs here and talk about you know we're gonna pick that stuff. With the ruling on Tampa. As far Stamkos you'd think you'd think what they do in the playoffs FX at all what happens with the campus because I need to know. Which are gonna pursue that maybe the sabres can get Amoco's bonito on my rooting for the lightning to win. Win long enough that he gets back to play. Warm rooting for the lightning to lose lose early stamp coastal think I'm out at a year. Does anything that happens with Tampa impacts Wednesday that's a good question. I need to know how to root for the lightning are not yet Stamkos is now or. Asset at a site text that's a good quest I'll tax them I don't I would think so it wouldn't. His decision be based on I I think he I would think he's made his mind up already regardless of what happened I wouldn't. I don't know if he's made his mind up already but I don't think that they want to stick. Campbell was in game six of a cup finals last year but still the idea that he would based on how close they are with him Derek contender. It's not as if they're. This to be their first time ever getting close in the era. Franchise it's never done anything and then if they made it to the conference final this year he'd say oh we're going in the right direction rest of their ringgit six. So which I refer in the go belly up and around one and I'll say now. I surely wouldn't say the beaten those close but he might have a up this hour days to go you have to get an eagle this way instead. You sit you hope they go far without him management thinks are we got stats he's the guy other are not gonna pay him right that's another argument could they do have. We touched on this yesterday they do have a number of players in the next you are cute they're gonna come up. First big payday and they will have if they pay him 8910. Million dollars a year is Summers suggested going to get. They're gonna have some cap issues and a couple of years in Tampa they cannot keep everybody's so that's the other argument. For the in the make a run ago we can do this without we can't we can't risk the rest of the team. 030 IP of the joint 8885525. If the richer and WG arbor right now at. The portrait you know about who would be there for boats to explode in the playoffs. Lindy because if you watch and then. Well the America only thing they're that is seen that. But they would even know that I agree it either but. You know that goes into what I wanted to artwork out my IE. Our we're BP that it won't pull that over I probably knew what HL and it. You know I watched and expel all they're gay man and I don't think that it here by the but you get into overtime and it wanna beat the recap our prayers are what we're the reentry. Where this it's always bother me at all clear the rule think in this that and discreetly. Put out there and it played the most important game that he here by the rule that they are all year I. And I hate it goalie shut them I mean Jeremy were quite a bit. Are you are and I hit all they are ready then. And the seat cover backer or better then in the NHL but purports to relegate it. It's just so if there I don't know how they expect anyone to buy it that little won't care who wins. NBC's coverage of Premier League is perfect fantastic you get a lot of teams you yet. Great cover I wouldn't disagree that. Well to their credit donate they do it they cover all the NHL games every and it's on right he's not dead joining payment progress there all devoted to their own channels like credit for that did you guys see the an average rate in four and BC sports network hockey coverage this season how many people approximately watch. The average NBC sports network game does not know seven in America. 386000. It's deaths slightly better than full house reruns on Nickelodeon. Still win I think is. We talk about the year casual fan and all the time and involved no exit I believe in buffalo there are some people who are like again and hockey playoff time. Across America. It's not the thing it's a thing that gets talked about its of its its nonexistent. There are no such thing is schedule hockey and there are people who love hockey at our guys play all sports fans and buffalo we have the highest ratings of any. Average NBC sports network games we watch them. So we think that there are these average fans that are out there 'cause they're here buffalo but in general enough for this I I think we should. What hockey fans want what they should get don't worry about trying to bring in more. Don't ask actually happening you know what sport has more capital fans that the NBA. And they have in the warriors whether their play in the spurs or under that Saturday night game which was after the roast. They've got the people the Indy has has enough casual fans will say all big game tonight all right I'm in employs less time hockey game. Had warriors and spur the other night had the highest rating NB ATV is ever the US Canada gold medal game and then Miller was playing now. Maybe I think I think fans who were victims of hockey. Who just love watching anything Olympics and would have to that would ratings were bright red right they had good ratings probably the USA Canada Olympic women's game I remember a lot of people talk until we got yet. And while a high ratings are good here in buffalo. The warrior will probably beat them. Television rating warrior games will be NHL games here. I mean the teams here like a one point two of them want. On such a one point two million. I thought why don't read it to where the radio and five or sixers I don't think to get a one last year at Google the war the NBA finals beat. The NHL outs consistently. Let's pick our bracket in HL has its bracket. Kind of like the NCAA tournament. We will vote on who won the series two out of three advance tells that. We'll just you know Dallas Minnesota we've all picked Dallas Dell's moves on if its to a three pick in team that teams on Dallas Minnesota. Oh ops aren't sleeping Dallas Dallas county's. Saint Louis Chicago. I'm taking things I am too it's their year to finally get by Chicago and ought to be the same as you guys on this that Chicago and then in Saint Louis advance. I edited by majority vote yet alias did the morning shows official bracket for bankruptcy long runs and I have a job. I have tiger to come on now gonna do the segment under protest that Anaheim Nashville. And a time for me at all so it again and I'm all right have a vote and so they meant by what we gonna I don't know being national. This feels good. They are good they have the best defense in the playoffs. The best line of anyone in so ever we want the ducks to win so the sabres get a better picture and make the order of the plant in Anaheim has just been such a powerhouse since about the first after about the first fifteen games of the season they've been as good as any. They don't act out so if there watching ducks games and why this is popped in my head but we should be watching what camp Ballard. Write his name has been and about with the sabres may be any buttons are restricted free agent but if you're watching the ducks are most. The predator finished the season. Six and fourteen in overtime and two outs there. Artificially kept low oh once. They get to me it's. Once how do you purple once they changed the rules because those rules don't exist in the play offs so let's roll those out. In the better indicator of how good your team is is the puck possession numbers which they were fourth in the NHL. It doesn't match up at all politically as an overtime and you know that's set. People pick in Anaheim yes. LA and San Jose and taking LA San Jose I want Jose in this series yes you want them with you it's one dollar one time you're gonna you're going to win I am picking San Jose real in this year's start the morning shall brackets canal I don't know that that's that's OK but I I think that there's a great case he made him. For San Jose is. Built the best Ron Oster. Had the way that Brent Burns is place or 26 couples this year as a defenseman you added toward Paul Martins that team. I think they're very very dangerous because of their offense and they have the best goaltender that they've ever had during this entire stretch of the team and Brent Burns lab best player of spirit of anybody as easy actually are ready and every shade. I'll stay in the west Dallas Lewis. And you know what if it's the blue easier then I'll take Saint Louis and if they get bash Chicago amid it is the year to make a run them. I'm gonna take Dallas. When he's pretty good playoff coach. He's had isn't it good record on the road Evan finishes with his goal Israelis consistently had think about all the times the sabres were in the playoffs every times it Lindy of the team that wasn't better team that if anyone is below pursued and as the higher seed presidents' trophy they lose in five games Ottawa. The scoring dries up I also think Dallas they outscored the next best team west by thirty goals and Dallas. And I'm in LA. Who by all want this year. A lot of guys that can be you know again they actually. It pretty physical series right. Is it weird and if I didn't take pickings in the first round but take him here today I would add it up I will take them here that saw these two teams play when I was on vacation. And and LA it. Just a strong Rangel trying to play against them is like drowning I think he comes down to doubting. And that's it controls the game yup and I'm very good I'll go in LA in that series then Dallas and LA. This is the best defensive team vs the best office articulate that point. I think I'm at a particular else. Ella writes of a morning show in LA winning the west in the Eastern Conference. Florida and the lenders I have no bones about it before it is a good they can score Longo is. I agree I think the islanders might be the worst team. Florida or the Minnesota and Tampa Detroit. Detroit's been playing not well down the stretch. In Tampa is banged up. It has got soma injury is slick and edit today Stamkos is outraged trauma that's still out yet Tyler Johnson was banged up. It's really a shame that on 1 side of the eastern wracking if the islanders red wings and lightning and on the other side you have the capitals penguins and and it's much Rangers but. Or take him with Tampa Matthew Matthew that I'd take camping here Tampa Detroit's goaltending has been a big question mark on the stretch. Op capitals flyers. Images in a cast yes I don't think the flyers are very good. I know that they get every game to overtime got a shot if they change the rules and overtime this through that and 27 overtime games. And a three and three you know so yeah I I I like to cap that's Washington I've got Washington also opt penguins Rangers paintings. They're they're banged up to welcome back yet but. Boy that the Rangers were just playing so bad dumpster Florida in Tampa. Florida we do I think Florida dongle come up big they've got talent to get an easy road to the conference final. I'd like I think floor. Washington Pittsburgh. The Washington I'm gonna take Washington. Because of their goalie. Paul BS celibacy is one of the best Hillary's been very good this year right he was very good for most of the last two years including last year's playoffs but I don't trust him. Oh don't trust them and I think that. Pittsburgh they play now this really up tempo game lots of risks jumping up in the player of all the defenseman. But at Washington to play that they're very few teams in the east we can keep up with the pace in Washington can and an attempt when. And and finally Eastern Conference final next base port in Washington and by the way if the fall final fours Dallas Alley floor Washington. Probably feels about that but I would you can do when. Yeah to Washington and then our morning show Stanley Cup final. LA and Washington. I'm watching. About Gary Bettman if that's the final four as he told a press conference say. And face it hockey couldn't work and warm weather city with the quarterly who was that I wonder why it. So which could take my shot and I wonder health bar in the Stanley Cup final they'll tell him which teams are playing. So what do we have to win over the Washington Washington and LA LA. Well I don't know who will win I would ought to Washington to win does that that doesn't count them not at that point I guess I think I would take Los Angeles I think the capitals. What did you get the vote I get to vote. Okay my case is Russia both teams are tremendous defensive teams they both have great goaltenders. Label them. He forward units capitals of a better goaltender. Yeah right. It's not often you say that against Jonathan Quick but right yeah he's been the best guy in the playoffs. No Lundqvist is the best time but I hope he's not even Lundqvist and not implying that that's is that a poultry has beaten Lundqvist in the playoff I don't worry about how long quest when the playoffs last year playing portly news and he's got the flu. He's the Lundqvist is the best goalie but hope is hoping it's right there but where the way he plays in the post season. Is. Pretty incredible. The way he steps up his game but yeah okay I look at that is is being pretty then maybe you can give us a slate it'll be but the offensive game of Washington and Jenny who's now it's off. Andre Borkowski like they have depth on that team. And they filled it out with a a linchpin player for the kings for very long time. In Justin Williams is now playing for Washington I think the slight difference there is that Washington is more dangerous offensively football team's future. At each other now. Well you said I would take LA. That's up to me on her official if the caps make it to the final. And lose it's a major building not built for two and a Stanley Cup I can't wait for that. Line to be honored when they lose all the out there are rounder to get past to avoid the they're not I bet it would have been if they lose in the first two. They lose to Pittsburgh. And it'll be. Not built for the playoffs overmatched he can't win in the playoffs the NHL playoff narrative bracket is pretty fun right the sharks like it's Hortons fault because he can never believe extra the last that is the story and hey maybe they took the Seaway is our for the mastered in Manila Crosby's the coach killer in the adversity of playing being without the latter event being his fault. I'm sorry Crosby right a popular Crosby could never win more than one co op and I mean you can just go down the line. And I mean maybe that's what's fun about sports but it's also frustrating because someone. Is only one team is gonna win and everyone else as a boss flow what's your vote. Welch is our final four Dallas LA Florida and Washington the number of top three pick Ellis has 23. LA has won Florida and have the pre Dallas has won. By Spezza Sagan. I think Latin and correlate with 31 thing as an ounce of three top model up on topics. I will pick Washington. Congratulations the capital. They've won Barbara Perry gonna be the best team earlier. Stay healthy that's another. It's gonna come doused it got down to who stays healthy the healthiest team has won like the last six cops. One of the reasons Chicago's won so many it's because they don't give her. They've they haven't had a significant injury at any point during their cup runs up. 515.
