Part of fighting are fighting a part of hockey's sake and a lot of people are saying yes I think it's pretty much the the go to answer one guy writes in I'd rather have scoring. Special guest coming up here just a few minutes just few moments I should say almost on the line. Lotta people hell yeah yes needed forces to keep players in line. Agree with that but I unfortunately I don't feel that. They're going to allow those those roles anymore. When necessary not to dance around stage stuff. When a guy gets hit now has to answer for the bell. Yeah so basically. You know this fighting still involved is still laugh belong in hockey and you know the topic came up Marty you're on Greg remain myself for talking about. DHL's new rules and you know their interest in days they involve a lot of you know. Identifying that fighting is is a part of the game and is probably. Here to stay I think when your hero recap the rules for. Players who enter into a fight prior to add or immediately following the drop of the park for a face off will be assessed an automatic game misconduct. In addition to other penalties assessed. During the regular season. During the regular season any player who incurs his tense fighting major Shelby suspended automatically for one game for each subsequent fighting me dropped to thirteenth. The player shall be suspended automatically. For one game. During the age. During the regular season any player who incurs his fourteenth fighting major chubby subsequently. Automatically. Suspended for two games. For each subs for each subsequent fighting major the player shall also be suspended automatically for two games. In any instance where the opposing player was assessed an investigator penalty. The fighting major shall not count towards the players total for this rules so that meaning if someone goes out and instigate a fight. That the player that that passed the fight due to being instigated while knots. Be. I guess penalized for a fight and that won't go against his. Is record. Waiting on our guest here and he is ready and I bring him on the line here is our lives what line one annie's. He's the man the myth the legend former Buffalo Sabres captain Steve Potts I wanted the show my friend thank you for joining us on short notice. Very create great hero reliable over here fox valley golf club manager ever get a chance to get out and play fox valley your time here buffalo. I I didn't mad men where you know it you know what's Rugova called soul. I can't come and Hillary are out numbered for training camp insisted electors. In that much Stanford golf until obviously when we did it play out there but other than not. Not in that it spent much time golf I'm an hour. Let's wanna talk to about DHL's new rules and I wanna get to those in a second because I think you and I can both relate to them and how they might help or hurt the game. But you know one more thing I just wanna congratulate you on here contract in Detroit you signed a one year deal and you know those of the kinda rule quote try to signings that we. We see these teams making that add depth of the lineup man in that's that's a team that definitely needed some of that so congratulations. Thank you recommend you know we're really looking forward to it family talked about written. We spent a lot of time in the one area which is right across. You know from each straighten. He straight kind of a local home he got a late and it grew up watching one of the team's early when I was younger and now you always have. Little bit as you prepared in the back your mind when yet. I have you're you're you know you always wish you wanted to play warrants that stop for me now I'm I'm really really excited I am. Now was it was that a decision that you give me you know based on the fact that you grew up at Windsor new YouTube to block the red wings are it was a passion decision I mean it's kinda sounds like you said that went. Was there whether other options that were hard to turn down. It either or other options that we're very hard turned down be honest with you but yeah logistic lie. Family lives where my heart was like it's settle it ought to have that opportunity. Choose to put on that readily entered the you know dug a little boy. I'm sure I don't know it earlier favored Q what the body you know like brought up in a year when you're proud hockey and or use. Turn into NHL player you only to have that dream in the back your mind in not out all week that all that earned that spot on the team. Really look import that. Well here's Greg here's the best questions for a guest going into it are you going to ask permission for number nine or use don't let that one slide. I think bella and I think that should be retired are on the all Arabic Allah be honest here mr. hockey. You know YouTube put him in the same category of not I had to lock away got you early on that scheme and and I really think it's hard to keep number nine leave every single uniform. And the NHL but. I really believe there's a place that want to be completely retired. If you're just tuning in that voices former sabres captain and league wide no old tough guy and and first round pick back in the day Steve. Lottery what you're up fifty goals that the assistant junior won here yet fifty goal. Hey guys are good at it eagle on the men and absolutely. Back and score and all of them but I don't know hundred finally minister go to blew it that's so. Hey you know at that time that obviously changed but you know I don't know part of the payment Colombo on poignant. No I I I know but I'm sick I guess I guess my my question is too late. Did you ever think when you're scored fifty goals in junior. That you know like how how hard it how skilled it is trying to translate that into the show. You know it's extremely hard looking on at the mare couple years you know according golden image on another huge year this court Chordiant. It would be extremely hard to do so what's coming out you'd think you're super high and still guy you know he scored that he all he led this your children score in the go to any charts. Reality check it's pure play our place here for probably five years and Syria earned those situations and back right here earlier and older you know just won a Stanley Cup the 1990 I started like come in and strapped city 2000 come in and they asked me hey we need an energy player we need someone to go run around. You know create some energy for these old guys may be yet not quite there at the wake some of a mop and you know what it kind of branded myself or a year and turned into what keeps me in the NHL the day in it's something bad it was and I'll do anything it's just stay like. Like you did this same way if you wanna stand a league is long because we can't. If you're just tuning in that voice is none other than Steve Lott former sabres captain now newest Detroit red wing along with you played with Thomas here rights along with Thomas Mann act. Another guy signing their betrayal I mean that's. I listen that's a great that's a great pick up I think for Detroit to water I mean. There's a guy that I think Anne and ribs isn't here right now he he hit the course but. That's a guy. Stephen you might agree he just needs an opportunity here and and a fresh start he could still score thirty goals this week. Well 100% and EU social skills he's such a high end goal scorer in the NHL and. To get him obviously aloe and you all. That you this he'll likely have created Ian. I I know atomic they're not capable of that you're human Cuellar a book Oren. It was pretty funny and I got a text and the co captains are back together we got a couple about it he already got them on come training camp that. Yeah that's I think that's great to Coke out does that toll of our that's that they're better say is that obviously. Here are the next minute after it right there on jealousy you guys are going to be back together that's that's awesome man. Eight prospect camp going on down here I know that you're not to prostrate cancer anymore but our river was talking about. How hard it is to make it to the NHL how much lock is required and did you require some luck along the way Steve because I mean I know your first round pick that back that first round picks aren't aren't there a bonus babies and opportunities given like they are today. You guys you know he had Ernie you'd took couple years and you know what kind of luck had to fall on your lap in order to get your chance if there was any. You know you know they're they're they're obviously at some park locker hockey locker whatever you wanna sit hockey gods you know take over sometimes and be honest and yeah I got my first column because guy named Kirk Muller the legend himself got injured in. You know sometimes they're they're different opportunities there. I got myself with a lineup then you know it's just started from there and you know chipped away game here a healthy scratch Eric senior and you know you can turn it that way but it all came off of you know someone else's bad luck there are there entry that. Psyche me a chance to jump in a league yet. And replace an older player so you know it's everybody has their own ways are you make it you know it's it's. A little different nowadays is there a little bit of a spoon fed and then NHL where. You know here first round pick you automatically get a bit lucky get that chance to be glare of the skilled guys are partly all right guys. Well we started yet despair in the port wider even healthy scratch in the press box we worked on the fourth line and maybe got a chance to move up. I years later but now it's different these young guys are common undertaken a high end job rating of the optics in the picnic at a picnic at at what they're gonna be given. The best opportunity o'clock. Eighties kids don't have to roll at a camp anymore with the worries of haven't this rapper dropped the gloves not earn a spot. Some of the god there's so. There's no parts of that state contests that you would lose under than the other guy and other curse fact that I respect your horse or you know what. Now it's it's. Over spilt competition series move and about and seen the best but. And it he can't keep up you can't keep up but back then editor in every aspect you can are even a backer Garrett reports in its place and our PD. And you know maybe be tempered and yet your way back to your. Potter does just tuning in Steve are kind enough to join us today in newest Detroit red wing and that's his hometown team so. Anytime we can hear about a guy being able to go back and play for the team that he grew up watching is a great story. Otter you don't you talked about fighting and I guess I'll just sort of question I elect this. Does fighting still have a place in the game. I think it does PDA in its its service sector. Our top thing everyone sees its transition much going on correct me if I'm wrong. I don't know I'm a little in the pocket let any talent fights were thirteen or so I 1111 Matt Bartlett and hook while all the case. I mean my first two years I think it would not they're sixteen or so quite a year. And I mean it wasn't a fighter it was a apartment at the plate because it is a lot of irons better order or do and what I had to do but I had answered the balance. You know they had guy. I mean I know they're they're starting from junior now they'd be implemented that that rule long time or junior a few years to go out and and young guys that all know that your intent like the year you look like a hero so crucible there's guys that are I'd dives and 88 sites here was pre season for us that it's completely I mean that was goes your way into it up street yet but you preceded to be like I'll. Now it's I mean immunity it's weird you can't buy a weighted you're trying to they're going in and like you are there. The media answered about but even then not and out of the genes so I don't know all the way that it we year where you'd simply deem it completely changed. I think the league you know an old battle now under owner. They elect suspension that your order or whatnot. They gratitude that I mean it's a completely different air with these young guys that are grown up into the game now than what we had written. You know what people want this speed the skill and everything else or by. You know they're they're gonna be got by here and there we use you know all speech and that attitude would that role I think it's thirty. Kind of party manifest that yeah well well over the last little while. Absolutely you don't want me to said the best word is the grudges are different there's no real. It doesn't seem like there's any real hatred anymore. Between two teams it's an audit me like there might be. Three or 45 guys on each team that. That might have some peace and the other team but it's not it's not like he used to be they've definitely done a good job of scaling all that back but I wanna ask you. So you know there are familiar with the rules then that the HL is implementing for the fighting because it is the same as the junior rules where. Opt for those who are just to be at its its ten fights you're suspended for one game if you hit thirteen you're suspended for another game. Fourteen game at fourteen fights it's two games. If you instigate a fight. You're automatically given our game misconduct and a few fight right off the puck drop. So it just sounds like they're getting rid of the staged fights but are there any rose to this rule I'm hoping to see. That maybe it might help keep guys a little more honesty. Yeah you know it it it's Chad yeah yup hope somehow end and when you say that. It's it's hard I think I think where they're big enforcer. You know you're obviously one album they're not many of those guys in the league anymore. The big fighters that data tool fiber to parents opt. And he can play the game means you didn't use and the power to a situation where are you maybe sometimes a net front situation or partly and all of a sudden you've. You're fighter that he got work quite right here so I think games. Completely changed. I think a lot to. The loyalty factors that has changed because of free agents yet Sergio need. Prayers are switching teams so often now. Everybody knows each other whereas before guidance stick on a team for ten years you know and and be commended the organization until they are tired so it's. Things are so different now know old business side of the team and you know what I I'm court keeping guys healthy players walk in the park recant and have fun doing it. But that same time he can't lose the energy here that the structure of our NHL game because it's such a good one and yet when you heat up. You know the cheers are quite. The cheers of a goal all those things maker seems so special. Yeah and the one thing to him you know final laugh final couple things here stories otter I appreciate your time if you're just tuning in again Steve bot. We'll take your calls tweets after he gets off the phone. You know I I view it as and I hope I'm I'm hope I'm right when I say it but I hope that. I've guy to hand look over on the other side of the banks and say why might not run that it tonight because that guy can jump mean he's just gonna get thrown out. I'm not gonna get a fighting major. But that guy's gonna get a two minute penalties to instigate he's gonna get thrown out while I'm I'm not trying to have a sacrificial lamb but if if if somebody hits. I don't know what senior lenders in the lineup this year. I want make the glory to gloat their run the guy over in that fight. Would. They didn't cut and here I mean you're talking and obviously embarrassed for different things like you know I'd be that are thinking in it it really is almost going out because. The NHL grabbed the guy or they suspend certain situations and they handled the cliche or the police you know we used to deal would differ and and that's the way that. You know we have to respect each other players and in certain situations. But fighting. With good competitive balance I think that's where you're gonna keep a fight. You're not gonna keyed up quite that old line brawl that are out. I've heard this kind of dissipated over the last for a while it's it's still going to be mostly cute guys that are going to be compete on a part. Don't like each other perhaps the second fight and it's over let them com or eight yet seen the last few years we've seen how much fighting on dot you've seen out. You know guys about the other guys in the heat away or they don't they don't you know answer colony marker so you know what it. It's some and overall and are you get used to or not that's it's the way this is called game change and. Along with society that's the whole society in a nutshell or indoor game as well. You know what I like most of our house I'll say this to summon up. And I don't know if you ever had these emotions. Steve going into a game but I I know that you might have but those night before the game days. They came to a jitters you know going into a game knowing that you might have to get in one. Not a normal human being would never understand. What that he ordered PD knowing how big goal and fight somebody. And McCarty Kris he you look over there you're watching it stayed in the day and you try to sleep knowing that you're gonna go under. And and have a bare knuckle fight no one either no one ever will have that feeling except the guys that actually did it and it's not final right eighty you know that hurt and knowing knowing you have to do it right at work saying what it's set up and wanna do it that you need to aren't. But when you have to get that you know couple hours and they're that they're not gonna work or not and until it actually happened. You're watching the other team in warmup opened the fourth line left Winger right wingers not not taken that taken alive garages open you might have an easy night. Potter can't thank you enough for the time man and I hope that they guys are still allowed to chase guys down after a hip check at center ice a little bit late. And they get chased down and they have to go fight the other teams have who is a ring a bell. I've seen it a few times the fact. Just be. And others will not and an affiliate would you go out and a ache that hit you through I mean Dallas man I'm telling yeah I'm still feeling it. Daimler uncertain and you know it sometimes things happen from then you know I eat dog world you know on good bye for the day. Take care hotter thanks for the time but he heated big Grammy argued that but he. All right doctor soon Steve Ott joining us and Tom just tweeting and correction on the fighting world one game suspension that and and thirteen it's one game for each fight from and the thirteenth so even so even stricter. Even stricter even more strict or it's a top. We thank Steve opt for the call in the time call and talk to us for live down here fox Bally. I give us a call it a 3055888550. To 550 and let us know what you thought about the daughters' comments and some of the rules fighting does it still belong what do you think I'm here until noon. In a real fight if the 88550 to 550 or at eight PD 76 or at WGR 550 dot com hockey allied WGR Sports Radio 550. A. Welcome back hockey hotline. Andrew Peters. Surveys on the golf course. We're live here at fox valley golf and caution club in Lancaster WGR 550s it. Golf tournament and very very good fifties theme around here a lot of people dressed up in. Very spirited lot of cheaters out there in the course Hampshire. Taking birdies when they shouldn't. Give us a call 80305588550. To five it into Peters here with rate Wilson back in studio just had Steve vaught on having. Or good conversational over about is his career and he's on his way to Detroit this year. Signed a one year deal right as backyard he's from Windsor in group a red wing span and you know that's the kind of guy that I think every team needs to have. Down their roster at the depth in the agitators in the readiness that you need ignited chip in offensively they also signed Thomas panic any mention that. Two point six million dollar cap hit after and by Leo from Minnesota. I think is quite a steal because as daughter mentioned in this we've managed Aaron Schobel for that. I think we've all and no one has given up on Thomas manic or in all we'll ever questioned his ability to put the puck in the net so. It's. It's a good signing for him and the other thing we talked about two which is kind of man. The topic in the first hour and it's carried over as the fighting in hockey in. The HL announcing that there are some new rules. And you know a lot of them being suspended after after the tenth by this season. You know players will start to be suspended. For one game up to thirteen and what's it fourteen it's too gains after that for I believe each fight now. That all being said there's there's rules around the fights and how they start you know if bite off the start of a face off for the puck drops. You're given a game misconduct. I ain't so what did try to do is trying to get anybody who's willing combatants to gauge in the player at least. Have a fight off of hockey play CNET. No fans do love the fighting in and it does still I believe it does still serve serve a purpose in the game. Break Wilson. Who is on the other end with me here he he went out of the prospects game the other night the blue gold game. And I'm curious to know Braden did you see any fights are Americans are been in years past. Yeah other have been in your stance that no anti foreign Tino got a fight extra glee with Josh Chapman and got into a fight the year before with adjusting Ki ya. You know this year he tried to fight he was that he was joined a little that would nick Baptiste nick panties isn't really the type of player that's really going to drop the gloves salt. I think there was a couple of times where it got close but there wasn't any fighting going on. There was at daybreak and we're back I don't know 2003. And maybe before 2005 maybe just just around that time where. There might have been ten fights that game I mean it would haven't been an absolute. Melee that just goes to show. Everybody how much the game has changed our give us a call it a 3055088. By fifty to fight it to your thoughts on fighting in the game does still have a place. Overwhelming amount of amount of tweets. Saying that yeah they they do want it get rid of the investigator rule if you know it was rather have scoring. Not semi scripted you wanna go stuff I agree that's what I did for a live a living and I agree with that. I don't think that has any place in the game but I do believe that. Playing hard nosed team and and having a guy stick up for guys if if need be is definitely. A necessity. You can tweet me at eight PD 76. Yes but I don't miss it as much as I thought I would and I only missed it because the average team is so incredibly dull now that's a sweep by. Both Jack when he seven and another tweet by Derek says Amanda if that's the case then Wayne Gretzky would have scored a 120 per season by your logic. Not sure what that means but. Sounds about right maybe. Yeah so Braden. Yes sir you're at the blue goal game the other night. But what we see we saw at some good performances at bats he's at a couple points and a few solid performances would catch. Yeah no I thought nick Baptiste was probably one of the better players that was nineteen Ballou I believe he was yet steam blew. On he was I mean he was skating really hard heat you looked like he was playing with some than approve any senate in his post game where. You know all the time to prove to buffalo that you know I can play is now. And I really thought that he was one of the best players on the ice throughout the entire game and I mean he'll holes I mean he said afterwards through that. You know with the with a guy like comic David he's the fastest player he's ever seen. And what Alex Mehl and went for second penalty shot attempt later on in the third period of that game nip that these almost chase down Alex the minor but still bet he said and he commander. You know he's he's he's a quick guy in and really did the two goals at new underscored on the odd penalty shots in the one that he had in the shoot out. Contest afterwards that those were. Polls are good sight to see sold the fans that paid twenty dollars this to see this scrimmage got their money's worth. Yeah one thing I'll say about nick Baptiste was is this is about his time now where he's either gonna make it or breakage and I don't mean that in a bad way I mean that the standpoint of he's had a nice progression of development he's got a couple good seasons in the American Hockey League. And he's the kind of guys get a hit great numbers junior. He was in celebrity that he was treated Erie for the playoff run there he's a forty gore guy in junior we we just talked to Steve vaught and he's not the same type of player or Eric to make up of Steve ought so. He's not gonna have to do what ought did to play on the third or fourth line and you know a guy like guy like that that he's I can see him. You know he's got we never talk about a brightly he's the kind of guy we never ever talk about him but. Former second round pick that you know he's a guy that you're right he has everything to. Group and this is his camp this year. Yeah I believe that. With a with a guy like Baptiste mean he he struggled at times slasher trying to adjust that the into the professional level in the HL. And this year you know. I think a lot of us want a seat. Baptiste. Has sort of what Justin Bailey did at the end of last season in Rochester where you know keep played a bigger game he was skating hard and I think that. Nick Baptiste with the with the style of play that he plays I think he can do that I mean he's got that he's got good size at 61 into one and a three pounds and he does ski. Really well I mean it's it's almost underrated because of a guy it's so big like that. But when he's got the puck he can turn on the jets in an instant and for defensemen that's kind of skating back on their heels not really you know paying attention. Bats he's can take advantage like that but. You know I watched him quite a bit when he was with eerie especially guy going down to go down to see the otters games especially in the playoff numbers are great they're fantastic I mean he was fifty points in 41 games. And he played primarily alongside challenge for all when he was down their cell. That this is this is the year for hinted to make that strike you mention a name though that I think could. Slow down that that opportunity forum knowing that's the the Justin Bailey kid he is just absolutely. You don't taken everybody by storm at the finish of the season last year. He was you don't starting the year a little bit of a ceiling he'll not even a fish out of water but just definitely had has had is. You know. Hurdles to third to climb in the pro game in the by the end of the year he was the team's best player and then you saw play in the NHL. And is speed is absolutely. By far. Over and above what you need. To get by in this league so you know working on finishing. Finishing around the net and and just playing here are good solid down low puck possession game. Justin Daly is is in my opinion you know the real dark horse stood to move somebody off. The roster this year yet he played really well the prospects game playing on the third line at that was where he started and then he kind of moved around as the game went on but. Bailey made a really nice play on the third goal in the first period of that game where he takes the pock beats that thundered to the Nat crashes and and hard. And you know creates a rebound chance fur for gold that was a was put inferred team blew. But I mean the speed that he is showing just is incredible in this prospect camp in me he looked light years ahead. Of everyone else out there and eight and we should be seen that from kids like Justin Bailey. I mean he's become an you know he said he wants to be a leader in this in this development camp I think he has. I'm gonna be really interested to see where his compete level and how well he's going to play. And training camp and see if that transitions over peaking keep up with the pace because I think if he does there's absolutely a chance that he can beat out. Somebody on the roster. Two to beat. You know a third fourth line right Winger for now and then eventually be a nice addition to the top six. You let's say somebody gets injured he can come up into the top six in fitted nicely. I a and I agree with you a 100% I did you know because if this were 2003. Years and before 20056. Or whatever. You know likes a guy like that you know would be able to play on the fourth line but now with the way the game has changed we just talked to Steve audit at 11 o'clock. This is the perfect time for guys like Justin Bailey committed be checking line players and and work the way. Were there themselves slowly up up through the to the roster. His speed is unbelievable watching him in Rochester one of the things Aussie before reuniting for break. Every game I want to see implant probably someplace about eight times last year. He drew penalty every single game just by driving wide. Tight turns in the quarter trying to take defenseman can handle defenseman do not know how to play against his speed so when he does learn how to regularly. Transition those chances in the goals I mean he's going to be lightning bolt on the ice with a series scoring threat so. More with Braden and I wont we return final segment a hockey outline a more about the blue and gold scrimmage that took place Saturday afternoon right here. And hockey hotline down here fox valley golf club WGR Sports Radio 550. I thought that was crucial for me. I know that you know in my time to make a statement for buffalo is is now on and I thought that I did have a pretty good Jordan tonight and I got to continue that trust is template percent to an intimate. Look back that was nick that's east final segment on hockey hotline here. Andrew Peters joined with Craig Wilson Gregor bay is on the golf course we're here live at fox valley for the WGR 550 golf tournament speaking of that. Have to throw little. Shout out to my buddies over their superior auto sales for the gorgeous car they gave me to drive over here today and show often parked in front it was drooling over its. 1967. Cadillac convertible. Eighteen feet long was linked to the suburban. Like an old and an extent it's a bloody this thing is ridiculous how long it is I can't I don't even think I be able pull it might rise. Just talking with break here about the prospect tournaments if you wanna go check out that car that I drive it's an SES cars dot com has is cars dot com they have classics it everything over theirs here auto sales. Give my body record calling you give you hopefully great deal. Yeah operate and anybody else that go to your. Yeah I really the play of asked this rat arrest is asked when I'd. I can't get the names rates it ressam's asked when he was Buffalo's second round pick 33 overall this year he was the pick that. Buffalo traded up to get out side in the cool cop trade. But. And aspirins a really really nice two way player plays real well and all zones in the ice. And he's going to be go home back too far to stand in Sweden at least that's what he said at the draft but. Mean if he plays well enough the sabres couldn't persuade him to stay. In North America and join the hammer spurred for this season it if you quick of course wants to. Quick notes are to cut jobs bring in Ryan O'Reilly. Found not guilty in his court case today I'm just finding this out from a tweets. Dole. Try to confirm that but I think I was reading a little bit about that and drop all charges are dropped start becoming more and more people are we need confirmed so. Sure he'll be out of boom move on from that part of his life in we. We all make mistakes that we need to learn from them so hopefully that is one that our Ryan O'Reilly in depth we try to turning to a positive in. You know. Use it as an example of what what not to do when talking to young kids in. Yeah so good news for Ryan O'Reilly. Sorry rate it mean to cut you off there but Rouse miss us when but I I just thought that that's. Definitely hockey worthy in and no. And I've lost in. Which is fine because we're about to wrap up here anyway. Rasmussen Aspen just on on greens thought there. Rasmussen asked when is eligible. To go back to Europe. And which I think he's going to do which in playback in in March that. Or he's seeking comment plane numerically but. You know either way it's time that scenario that. Tim Maria I think likes to have. For young prospects out of play pro hockey because you saw with a guy like cal Gregory goat not ready for the NHL couldn't go to the American League. Had to go back to junior just a lot of times the players are better than the leaks that are in which is why their draft in drafted so high.
