So I mean every action cartel like I mean try and what you know recreate the moment when you've got the call and you. You found out the bills were going to select you. Well voters so it in. I sort of have a lot of you to the coach is this your post what are called to vote it crossed from weird numbers are very you know I'll ask her. Aerial hay you know expect though. I didn't believe in you really want to call the stereo in my little watchers out out out out front there in the last little while Hamlin. Indicated Monday part of the what the truth you're hundred that your your Bobo followed the island. I would record. So you people were calling where ever they like pretending their NFL teams yourself or just call and I hang it up. Oh yeah it was. I guess they were. Expect in the you know feel weird number they can trapped by the country. Has that kind of effort caveat. Up figured it would probably no by the satellite that will play a joke of you know similar. Whether the great food that is. So the bills call you up it's legit you get drafted by them and when you had a chance that. Sit down calm down and think about it what are your thoughts about coming to buffalo and plan for the bills. I'm. Another record they were better situation to be here. To play a floor better coach play over all sorted greater soccer players but people. You know. Guess reflected a mothers looked to buffalo coach Larry and and they're talking about the situation in that outlook potentially be able ordered in the cable well. And you know really. Not that really it's a reality right now it is not a particular there every situation from. Are you met as you mentioned your visit here artist Jimmy also had a chance to spend. Some time with Greg Roman the offensive coordinator what what did you did it feel about that meeting with him when you got to normal little bit. Well we've missed their mark now he carried out of their chemical weaker congress you know you re a cult Bart you'll meet. In the unifil rule book that you're so. More dramatic look at hundreds of buffalo looks really more work speaker know where one goes on top vote for the more color culturally. Widget negative of overall the whole coaching staff and how that visit went. Some great people you know because this you know there. Player and things they do all of this past year you're the cut it to look a look you're our Cutler so you know have a prayer their organization but I. Leon hello there. We're with our Dow Jones on the AT&T hotline okay. Let's talk about your time at Ohio State and I mean a everybody remembers that three game stretch you had against Wisconsin Alabama and argun and it's really. I mean it's unbelievable thing back on what you in the team was able do you would you specifically coming in getting those three games in the success you had. Why why do you think you were able to come right in like that in the Big Ten championship. The national semi finals in the national title game. And have the success you had at that time. And let it Rivera home. But one of the main reason is this had a great group Bogart they're rubbing. A matter of who will coach in coach urban. And who always believed in me. It glow that kind of question you look at the start of the lowest on the cab you know what those are. They drove solid but there and just taken at approach they are they now. You know from. Currently here at cedar could end you know so be careful Richard your grade so all their daughters of my preparation or elderly. They key milk for. Not here at my plate with the circular also. OK so now you come back and you have this season and I think maybe your eight know as a starter and you end up losing the job. What what how tough was last season for you. Extremely we can't you know it goes on this year's starter bird you know things that we want to do it also. I can kind of you know oh I don't want data was in my excuse but Hugo JT turner. Rare things a little better term. Our coworkers. Cannot go to the thing. But I mean. Everything worked for the veteran still fear the boat ramp where a doctor or the leader Louis. But are still preparedness. You know make sure we're ready revoke a look much slower. And with your jump to the NFL cartel you've gotta you talk about two good situation you get an opportunity to learn. Do you do you think about you worry about thirty cannot practice the patience it'll take because. Too good to have lost that in that have not been able to start and then that you might actually have another road headed view. How do you petty keep feeling like you are playing. Like you're playing football I'm sure you know you miss being out there and be under center on a regular basis. Yeah yeah this. Our direction. You know irrelevant in you know do whatever you can access to produce voters care that pitching is better. And puppy love and out burger record. A mobile Taylor position and have a little or develop new law and order ball or virtually. I'm not be here. Water problem I mean I'm sure it's a long list the what are some of the things you think you need to learn. To do as a quarterback at the NFL level. You have to hit a long list and then I Carla Politico he got murdered. Or so cause Lee no retreat this terror. You know how to Courter player and a little bit. No what I'm lacking in my game that I need that one days. Potentially obviously support out. So a look at some near the coast sleek and went to Iran in particular order meant that kind of dissect any sort of stood up and make Leo world player. Well for let's go I was curious that the you know the experience overall. At Ohio State the good the bad everything altogether the team's success well you know what was it like for you to play in that program. Beyond that kind of that national stage actually deal about the pressure that comes playing at Ohio State. Your recollection of it looks far from me in oh. Me relax after round total of pressure because well well in my opinion about what it is but it's the best in this regard to the best. Players all of the people in the country. Don't you know that. We learn about a group of people. Like that a couple of major coaches. Oh a couple of hot public Internet. Or if you don't support that we. It's not so much pressure at all. You know because you know I think rather every day to be Superman. You know so he does you know plain looking until we get soaked and let the chips fall in the. What up for the bills fans that are listening cartel what what can you tell about a dolphins Washington. Our news news. Unbelievable piece to our defense not disregard for the blue regular glow. Quote operating Hitler who played up Obama should McGregor out everywhere for her so. But adult kind of in your mind that other you know he's he's a big guarantee unilateral retreat. And many people don't know if it was mr. Ohio national public eye so. Don't let it factually BC you know basketball court. Have you texted Reggie to remind him who won that game when you guys played there. Now not that taught how to read you either you I was you know. Now about clearly having a great two days together the kind of reflected budget they gained little Nazis an course. International cherish these little you know sparking a coma look totally kicked out but to let it be an issue. You know they can put regroup and that we have not been able to look illegal. Well congratulations again hopefully things work out great for you here in buffalo on thanks very much for giving us some time this morning cartel. Only had gotten picture has you know. You bet have a good day. Carnell Jones joining us on the AT&T hotline thumbs up love the kid fun interview nice personality took a shot the NCAA. Laugh and around having a good time blob very nice hopi comply. He's not a big fan of the NCAA. Yeah this tweet about. Classes from way back yeah. It's funny Oksana brought up over the week yeah yeah I remember when that happened and and how you felt about that at the time I thought it's pretty funny I think it's inaccurate to. Adding to get to be an athlete necessarily to feel that way. The new take classes that you thought completely useless all all you talk Roman mythology as. To me to this very day by you fulfilled your humanities. Requirement liberal arts writer writes us to like I took. Do you I had to I took I took a class are Orson Welles movies. This I took bowling. Well I took some really. It took cyclical one like why would I need to I'll maybe dealing with wireline callers actually psych one a one I taught helped explain some things just like six psychology courses like won the book was to pick my miner with political science. I can't remember anything from political science you've got a serious article on I mean it was just a flat out broadcast major broadcast major broadcast journalism minor in political science. I can only remember rank that explains a lot now I I blew what. Look inside is not about politics. It's not it does nothing to do it. I know it is angered I took a higher political thought a kinetic no. How many credits you need to have a local science minor you know you're really making the show about politics here this morning and I feel I can remember won the last about like. We learn about the core. And the periphery. He didn't talk like blue state red state all hold our own no no liberal conservatives know. Nothing like I took political philosophy was my miner and I learned a lot be it wasn't about politics again which is a little weird but a lot of it was about logic. And win year analyzing sports in situations like that logic can be helpful it's fun because logic is not often applied to politics. So that right it's strange. It may be going back in the day you know tear to your point about cartel like I have this speech of my son. Like he's he'll show me summit about the liberal arched up everybody has to go through this stuff is to get some of these classes and he's like. Dad Lima Dylan like I tell the app because you have to ordered to get your 120 at a graduation but what I'm gonna use. Took took a French amassed a master French about state of six or Spanish. I took eight years in high school that I had still that take a foreign language in college. The math I took French I took with you know I guess that Greek and Roman mythology. A whole bunch of stuff and he's taking classes now that you're just. I'm not sure how this is gonna help you but I gotta give in the old song and dance are you never know when you're gonna need. The oral history of Russia from the eighteen hundreds right I crushed sign language really relevant to my career. Radio outs but. Sign language was surprisingly fun he used to get I mean can you. Still mound yet no but at the time that I was done at the time I was done I. If I saw people using sign language out I can pick up a few things of what they're saying and I felt like I was he's dropping again spell my name steel. Well there's two things about this so Carl Jones puts that on Twitter he's actually been quite active on Twitter the Laramie console story. That happened Thursday. And after the show Friday I found myself wishing we talked about a more on Friday cut there was a guy who I follow him on Twitter he is retired who we is because he sent something out in his Jerry matte along. And he is a veteran ESPN multi platform talent executive. Right. I don't remember why file but anyway I think he's he's a talent exact in broadcasting in whenever and one of the things he roe was about Laramie console. Any tweeted how this should be a textbook case for the payrolls and though the potential. Damages. From being active on social media and how anything you do can. Kill your career. And I do agree with that to a point. It is important and it's really important point of the Laramie console was hacked. And that somehow. We have become. We've come to a stayed in society were were ever in our living publicly through social media that he got hacked and he got blamed. Now if you'll have your bank information stolen and you get money taken from you. Are you to blame. No I would we went through identity theft or someone someone. Filed a fake tax return on our Social Security of mission all the tax return claiming they were making 8000 dollars in the refund. I went through a lot of hoops in circles not a lot of baloney to deal with that cell but it's not my fault was Jon Gruden there to tell you that's what you get for banking online now I think they hacked into the place that did my taxes and Geithner and promotion that did you get for going back tax place. My fault. They got hacked right. But in social media we blamed. With Laramie council Lotta people blame the guy that was the victim doesn't happen all the time and everything and even an hockey somebody gets hit and it's a dirty hit. Well maybe should have been in that position right Ali as always sit in the legal hit they said about only not a our rob Barry trots I think goalie and he was leaning Donald right now. No I like I've had this discussion with my son okay maybe this is me being a bad parent against our. I told him. Be careful what you tweet call for sure careful what you post on FaceBook but I've not told him. When your at your he's at a fraternity OK when you're at the fraternity party I've never told him. Look around the room. If anybody's taking any video with their phone. And make sure you go up to that individual and say. Don't ever post this stuff like five years from now. Don't post because it's gonna do harm UQ would not get a little bit like saying everybody who comes to take a picture or video hey. Delete that right now. Not just that fast for ten years from. Who'll alive will be able to run for office who lives will be able to do anything. It's kind of sounds like I'm excusing. Any sort of behavior but. The president made a weak joke at the correspondents there on the other night. That last time I was this high as the eleventh grade I thought what does this tire strategy was my major like. At some point we are going to have to accept that every one alive under the age of twenty. Will have to weeded snap jetted FaceBook or in the grand something that the older people that don't do that think is horrible and will make them. Ineligible for any job anywhere ever but the reality is. Everyone's going to have the Internet forever. And the ability for the Internet to be hacked. Your personal texts but the Mario Williams stopped when those texts came out Andy's dispute with his with a zags. It made me sick to my stomach because we are not supposed to know that stuff. And I mean I'm not. Whatever this is a little political but I'm gonna say it anyway. The point we are act. Where York texts your pictures. You nothing that you always York's any volatile public wreck everything it's all belongs to the tech companies and if they wanna just go ahead and make it public they do. And guess who gets blamed you'd. You know you're you're a observe what will last that Erin Andrews got blamed. She well you know way she made money off of that thing Hulk Hogan gawk right gawker loses that monster lawsuit. The Hulk Hogan why they lose it. Because they put out this. Video that's not new worthy there's no reason for that. Call Hulk Hogan videos about be out there it's specifically to get clicks and to make money into exploit a person while the person that release it is Laramie console video did the damage and Rexall video was not in the damage it's newsworthy. No one needs to know about it you're not revealing that he is. Two wings something to her or someone else and making a new was worthy claim your out to damage which she did and you cost him however many millions of dollar and that person should be put in jail. They should be prosecuted. For a digital offense hacking someone's information. Whether it's bank account or pictures you can't just going to someone's falling tweet if they've got pictures of themselves of their spouse or their boy for Negroponte. Naked on the phone you have a right to take a picture. You don't have a right to tweak someone else's picture. So I think it's way too much blaming the person well you shouldn't take nude pictures no excuse me I do have the right if I wanna do that if my. Whatever my girl from my one if I wanted I have the right to do that. And expect that use or can't steal votes and publish those men are serving time in prisons for revenge foreign. That's happening. These laws are being written you can't just take the video and say ha. Screw our bull on the Internet you'll go to raising if you do that. So when it comes to privacy. We we've lost a lot of it in its time to. Tenet acknowledged that stealing someone's privacy is a massive. Crime so the person who did at the Laramie console. Parity got a tweet you shouldn't have been in his account he did not didn't. It was a crime. And it shouldn't impacted his draft stock at all. So parents are well I can which I was out on Friday in video that someone else had and then hacked into his account to. Posted on his Twitter character. All you should even take a video no he's allowed to do that. He can do that you it's not. That he has the right to take a video of himself doing that if he wants to. And he has the right to expect that it does not go public. Don't you have a right. But you can't just report of all call think about the body Nick's been with the Tampa Bay GM right. I prosecuted. As you can't just call somebody record and then publicize it and check it out we got this guy with a illegally taped phone call. Or loss against the stuff. Anyway that are sent a smile rant about privacy because it's being eroded massive. Analysts that is like cardinal Jones is there I don't know how that happened. 85 trip ball and this all morning but you wanna make and just just we got that because colonel Jones tweets all that stuff the people all day what do you think about. What do you think about him and we just document that misty the night sky super nice guy yeah. Well I think he's a guy. Who basically said with a lot of athletes feel. I got here to play. This game and it's hopefully gonna get me a pro career. And the universe he's making a ton of money off me and I see nothing so special about that stuff they I I but that's all morning. Are you ready I finally have clues that against Gonzales. Jets jets drafted Christian Achtenberg in round two of the draft this past week and Friday. That makes nine quarterbacks moral yet have taken in the last letters and sat Denver thank you know obviously in five minutes right. Nine quarterbacks they've taken in the last eleven draft going back to 2006. Bellows the name the nine quarterbacks. Christian hack humor that is one of the unexpected. Rice paddy fourth round 2015. I remember this one because it was our old afternoon producer Tom stitches. Favorite player. Wrote the scourge of his existence Taj boy I thought I was gonna get vehicle that went around 62014. Because so many people called and suggested. That they should bills should draft Todd Boyd because Sam Hodge Boyd. Is now in the C definitely play from a on geno Smith round shoot 2013 you're going in crime a lot of chronological order I'm very impressed are right. The Alabama kid Brody oh now on keep that home. You McCarron oh well now that's a Cincinnati. We're on the McIlroy won there you go won the SEC title and a national championship Greg McIlroy. Round 72011. Very good you're still a chronological politic Helen mourning him. Hell right not Kellen Kellen Clemens Larry good Kellen Clemens round to 20061. Of truth quarterbacks they took that here however. The other guy. In terms of his NFL career was known more for position other than quarterback. And played for the bills. With that one more time is known more for something other than quarterback in the NFL he played for the bills. OK I sort of acknowledge someone here. That he he did throw some assets that are bills he did what was intercepted Brad Smith met Brad Smith round fourteenth out of hot dogs Eddie. Round 12009. I was word where you're going with that one but Mark Sanchez OK got one guy left Brooks bowl injure now. He's my go to jets quarterback think this guy has more obscure than Brooks bowl in 2008. Round five. Where anyway when it is all as it's all timer just since just since 2006 the last eleven draft nine quarterbacks can say Brooke's older one straddled on the just since 06 okay so around five he played at Tennessee. He hit the NFL he ends up being suspended. Because of steroids slash related substances he violated league policy. And he ended up being injured retiring in 2011. OK is around. Around five what's cool Tennessee Jarrett the brands and know his Kentucky he would era third all time leading passer. Behind Peyton Manning analysts say leave the keys to Claussen with the other guy is this is this guy related to someone. Ricky steaming since you have Qaeda he has the last name as a famous. Basketball player and you sport athlete and out there relate I think any changes it is mentally related. Is it is yeah I think Kevin is every change Eric Eric I didn't or about it I don't know Billy lane got no idea. Not sure I'd have to check the wonders if there relate Erica. Nine quarterbacks in the last eleven drafts taken by the New York jets' Brad Smith Kellen Clemens Erik Ainge. Mark Sanchez. Greg McIlroy geno Smith Hodge Boyd rice paddy and Christian. Concede on this. List of quarterbacks that sounds like it they they're all from the Matthew collar school of okay fine taking chances on these guys is neat in relief taking a chance and anybody if you're drafting one past the fourth round and who really have almost no chance of him being success 11 rounder. Two in the second. Sorry three in the second all hacked and while Hackett bird yeah Smith and Kellen clemens' spoken and then. Couple of fourth a fifth a six a seven yet if you're doing the fifth sixth or seventh you might as well just our way. The tour whenever case is U fourth round guys and I it's and they were. Higher in the round knowing the jets' record typically. Rice paddy who we don't know about and Brad Smith to turn it turned into a wide receiver with cartel Jones. On Saturday when they picked him. It was hard to differentiate between saying that I don't believe quarterbacks after the fourth round ever have success and also saying. Cart Al Jones is different because of how few passes he threw. In college and what he has in terms of an arm normally you have a guy this big with this much of an arm. He's gonna go earlier but he only through 270. Passes and college you know Matt Cassel right he'd union play. Right he had no Kyle through like twelve passes its entire college career and was still pick in the seventh ranked. And became an NFL are and it's we'll have the patriots find a guy and the answer is. You didn't even play in college they just drafted him in it based on. Either recruited him a lot of measurable let's give this kid a shot it turns out he could've played the Ricardo Jones could fall in a similar write your whole. Is that. JT Barrett and Braxton Miller were just great. And they got to play over him most often when he did play. And he just needs more XP this is another point about college vs pro Braxton Miller plays out of the worst Braxton Miller addressed in the NFL. Went wide receiver ran around lodged right had a cart now and it's because in college things are so different that you can just. Mix and match and you know urban Meyer's got significant advantage with the type of player he can get type offense he runs against Youngstown State and keep them but but also in the big. And Carnell alluded to it a little bit there that the offense they wanted to run involve the running quarterback and a mobile quarterback and that's the thing is C. He's not exactly that he can move a bit and guys a bounce off them but he's more of a stand in the pocket and fired the ball which is not. The offense that they really want to run. His nickname was twelve gauge yeah because of his arm strength and he's in his uniform number twelve yeah. Pretty cool now now we're gonna get taxed about how are glorifies weapons. 8030551. I think that we do on this wrinkle or spyware and that along I think 550 to 550.

Our FaceBook pages set up for you to weigh in on our on air debates jackets dotted FaceBook dot com slash WGR 550. Everyone understands the importance of shopping local value homes that are said the locally owned and operated for 47 years.

That saves you time it saves you money it helps to get the job done shop local shopping easy shop value. You know plus they want start as well so we're excited right there and and the thing about right when that make you very excited is he. In college look equivalent to our defense is Alabama so he wouldn't comment and have familiarity right off the back. Doug Whaley on Reggie radler and another guy I like me he's gonna get off the bus and start. Another guy he said Jack Austin get off the bus and start and Reggie wreck and get off the bus and start but so is twofold it's always because a he has the town lighten the we don't have any linebackers yeah well you know I and I like. Look at you know the whole best player available thing you know when Doug really was here with a this morning and as Terry mentioned. We had the GM and for almost half hour. It is available on demand audio I'd like that he pointed out needs you know I mean yeah they used this stick to the board. Player great blab blab blah. But that's one of the things it's appealing about this draft. That and over think it and we need pass rusher picture line backing core. Oh look at defensive tackle who has pass rush ability wonderful take the three guys that help your defense. That's what the bills did that's why nobody is complaining about the draft because they got parts they needed. And still took a flyer on a quarterback and cartel Jones and hopefully turns out to be something. So as I said it would have given them B however. Draft grades of course throughout his body and particularly care bill it would be via via the got a whole bunch. Chris Brown did a nice little recap the bills dot com a whole bunch of different draft great for the bills I want to bring up Briscoe peak Briscoe from CBS sports are on luck. And I know. This is that you're not grating and exam really either there's a correct answer where there's an incorrect answer but this is more like grating a test of Athens. Each teacher would interpret the answer in a different way. As opposed to a here's the right answer here's the wrong answer but. He Crisco says the bills got a seat I thought OK why. The analysis is if you love loss and and Reggie rack and it's a good draft if you don't and I don't. It's just okay. That's why rate this an average draft C so I mean it is it's it is odd. This why you should pay no attention to draft grades basically comes down to the person doing the great. Well I don't let the bills took three guys on defense they need pass rusher. Thumping. Hard hat off physical linebacker blab blab let an upfront with good pass treasurer's. But I didn't like the first two pixels. And given the city he loved the Jonathan Williams peck. Fifth round running back from Arkansas says he's got second round talent this last season with a foot injury third day gem. Colby list and be. Burner and amp up the passing game he's wrong. But they have to love the ability of him to get down the field so that is the lowest grade the bills got that I can find this morning EC. Crisco CBS sports dot com. In an issue what are you putting your grades up that. An arrest Al lot everyone got in an incomplete. It seems boring. Well. I actually have to see the players play. And in the teams it's gonna be a very short article that you post that you know I thought about writing an article about the leaks today but I'd. It was going to be. Raised in sarcasm it was released the shortest start main article ever written like hate Toronto here's what we think and it was gonna say. The leaks tanked that's fine Stoppard and they didn't congratulations on winning lottery that's. And that's. That's the weird weird frustrating part. They really looked to be putting themselves in in a great place. You know it's we said that's their right. Lot of I don't want. I'm a sick twisted human being I don't like rivals to be good even though it makes for better rivalries right it was much more entertaining when the bills and dolphins were good at the same time. Kelly Marino has been far more entertaining then fill in whatever quarterback you wanna fill in for the bills and for the dolphins. It kills the drive through and win neither team is good. Having said that I really I like when to run as miserable but they're they've the and so many good things. And that's why. I. Didn't want them to win because people are gonna point out that this is how you do this is the proper way to do how to rock did it iPad people tweet this morning. Well they end up with seventeen more points in the same percent last year I think yes Esther was also a very strange year guess what there was another team completely tanking. The Arizona coyotes is a race was in most years the worst team in the league has what upper sixties low seventy somewhere around the seventy point. Last year with the coyotes are two years ago. Was a really weird occurrence you had two teams fighting to get to the top of the draft. The sale of fifty whatever needs to obstruct just quickly. The leafs are making good moves yeah I really do think they're headed in the right direction I just don't want people to portray anything they've done. As any different. War less offensive. Than what the sabres in the coyotes did an icon except some good players to. I'd throw in good shape and have made good moves at the thing of it is if you if you. Once you enter the tanking word which is. Designed to be at the bottom did your organization. Designed to finish in last the answer is yes. That's the end of the quite a like a dinner conversation released designed to be in last yes. Did they make roster moves to help that happen yes. Soul on the idea of the finish of more points or goals against differential wasn't as bad. That does not make any difference. They play Garrett sparks five times in April. Like. No we know what they did everybody knows what they did ninths. It's fine I'm mad about it it's fine were mad that in for some reason in Toronto you've got many many members of the media that. I don't know wanna paint a pretty picture of it like it was somehow. Dignified. Or batter or. Or that they got the first round pick because of harmonies people that don't donors now drawings were apparently they wanna they wanna drawing because they did this war. More with more dignity they were rewarded for the next step in the offseason is the Drake could jewel sweepstakes the North Dakota product. According to Elliot Friedman visited with eight teams they've it's believed eighteens. He is down to a shortlist Tim Murray had said as far as he knew this sabres wanna shortlist. The teams he is said to have visited. From Elliot Friedman buffalo Chicago Edmonton Ottawa Philly Pittsburgh Tampa Bay in Vancouver. Bit of advice to Drake could jewel. Ottawa and Vancouver.

When's the last time it was fun really fun for both sides and both were good. When he met the conference finals. It's been like fifteen years teen year itch.

And this day and nine. Teen 39 Lou Gehrig. Took himself out benched himself. A quitter. Is only 2130. Straight games or Lou. Why are mean he could have played in named a disease I'm looking at a pitcher I'd look at picture right here. A tricky get a play. Took a day often may. A team could cost your team and you don't have a sentimental bone in your body on camping and as this from baseball historian. About that at peace now so this day in 1939. Right so we could see sabres leafs. There's good news bad news with this the good news is hey maybe the games have some juice again. The bad news is that means Toronto fans come to the building. The good news is your season ticket holder and pay a lot for tickets might be able to get some money back on the strong games that news's and in Ronald fans are in the building. It is what it is but probably take over the draft. What happens. You know what else might happen with this Toronto might actually learn who Jack eichel is. He's only can't carry out to Matt writes the strange side effect of this is that at Toronto will have a great player Austin Matthews whose American. And it might be pointed out to someone in Toronto. Jack Michael. That's EI CHE. Out he's also American. And out really gut. And all the a lot of Canadian media outlets have really had a lot of fun forgetting the second highest point producing all over the whole season. Rookie. But on in my name. I would do my best luck you're right it's better when if you have a rivalry it's better when both teams are good that when the sabres and the senators were both god. That was fun that was enjoyable you'd got you got psyched up for regular season games that you got a little bit more you know little more energy in the building so. I just I I tend to look at sportsman very selfish standpoint you know I want rivals to really stink I don't want the leafs to win. But it's three for the betterment of the rivalry and and the games are more fun and all this other stuff. Sure it's probably better for the least be good in this ever to be good at saint time. It makes the games more interest I think if you are a Boston Red Sox. And you look at what the Yankees are doing this year you probably say. C'mon guys. McCullough along come along we need to beat you in the playoffs or something if you. If you go back years I mean what's the Red Sox. Most shining moment it's beating the Yankees in the playoff series and I know the way they did it and coming back and if the Yankees are in last place in the Red Sox dole win the World Series and don't have to go through the Yankees it's just not the saint. I think that's fans don't like the Phillies but right now beating the Phillies is kids play I think he just getting the nationals most of those of the games that you really get fired up for right now you just like watching them lose no matter what I would of love them to lose the lottery that's I was really rooting for Toronto. Obligated lose lotteries and I'll refer them to lose with Boston Matthews and lose with everyone but Khryapa. With dignity. Golf course and more compete with these guys. I think it was the most disappointing to me that the sabres didn't end up in the top three because the top three. Whether would be if Patrick cline NA or Jesse poli RB would have set them up. So well from me young superstar level player standpoint with Patrick lining. I mean I believe that he is elevated himself to nearly equal to Austin Matthews what he did in the Finnish league playoffs is almost unheard of for a kid is eight. To scored ten goals in eighteen games in a league that has all sorts of veteran players and experienced players that doesn't give a lot of respect to their young guys. I mean that's spectacular I was envisioning. OK now you don't have to do the stand goes thing and you've got this player and he could be with jacket salmon that sets you up for success because. So much of whether you succeed in the league has to do win. You know ease the situation you get put in so would've been perfect form and now it's gonna take. More development is a Smart move by his agent they were had they ran a feature. On. NHL tonight and it shall never lose a featured done by Elliot Friedman to sports that about. Matthews that's done minera when he was in. Was at Sweden Switzerland to remember. Swiss right yeah they did futurity was playing good this season but amid deployed the agent said. We want a new play against the at a higher level of competition to prepare him so they decided to did not go the NCA route. They didn't go to the Canadian hockey league this and I'm over to Europe plus she played for team he's playing against you know older guys he's playing against guys that were in the NHL. And he was playing on Tina was coached by mark Crawford so he's getting exposure. And coaching from a guy who was in the National Hockey League self serve really it turns out to be a great idea for that works are great for the kid. He plays well that league. Well I think he's solidify solidifies his status as the number one guy does he said what they were two teams now. They're talking about lining as the guys that have number one on the board yeah that mentioned the TS NPs last week. Bob McKenzie is peace they pulled a number of Scott's. And there were a couple of scouts maybe three or four who were talking about lined a giving us to Matthews. A run for the number one shot. Well there's a person on Twitter whose name is C road it's amateur that is but. By James moral or Christian wrote this NHL draft. Okay there's a calculator. That will take any league game go to any other league so how many points in the Swiss legal what's that mean in the NHL. And according to the calculator Austin Matthews his production. In the league he played in this year is the equivalent of 42 points in the NHL the 42 point c.'s current. So now. Next year start your over under at. Last year kind of what I had about 42 if you played the league this year so now I think you could probably pencil him in for a around what Michael I'd literally 5560. Point. That's where I would what do probably 5060 you'll get. All the power play time and lots of favorable minutes the question will be for them whether they want to move Bellini Lander to wing or have him be a senator and then. What do you do with Condrey is Condrey the third line center now because they just resign him to the big. Long term contract is it weird airs wrong that I immediately started thinking all right fine you've got Austin Matthew so. I delegate to the playoffs and this is important O Reilly matches up against Austin Matthews Michael goes out there who'd they match against cycle. You know in your nine year Billy really gone down all their right or not real is now what about it about I don't I hadn't advanced that far very gut. I did and try to pull this off they actually did have a a Maple Leafs. Depth chart. At TSN site I was looking at it to see how their lines are coming I want Sar incorporated the break Scott. Thank you heard AJ who sent this long Scott Wheeler tweets. Jack cycle. Carrier of skates. And then the list of career awards that he has all tournament team first team all American all rookie team Kobe baker winner gold medal the world juniors.
