McKinley parkway to be. Just a little while from now talking with Eric Holler who is a teacher coach over at spring built and industrial institute. In his eight event coming up and they do. Thursday night actually want talked about talked about now be part of that of that as well we'll get him on the line. Just a little while from now but any time we are taking your phone calls today and have a talking a lot about Tyrod Taylor and the bills in the option coming up they had the big decision on. In the future of that position with the bills so your freak on that as well 8030 by fifty or 88. I'd give did you buy that talks sabres from last night. And going forward and the back into the program coming up a little while it's Greg de host of the investigators here at the PGR with Peter Peters is going to be here with me. At buffalo sports so you're driving around when he Greg you can come to that as well he will be here Greg they'll be set in me. Just about 1520 minutes from now we'll be here exit idol on and talk with sabres now to talk about last night's game I was there. I doubt the key banks that are in. It was a disappointing effort I thought by the sabres needed some nice things at some point in the game it was Brian Gionta said that solidly this morning I thought that. But not enough consistently and at that passing was not very good power play got very good last night. They didn't take the body in front of the net a couple of times resulted in the couple bull by the capitals but we'll get in the that would him. As we go one here. The NFL has announced that they will play four games in London next year 48 they have been playing three. I keep stepping up. Four games next year. In I believe already we do know odd to particularly playing one of them is Jacksonville Jaguars of course because they have been. Already sleep did you do that pretty much every year here until the age when he. Twenty Q I'm looking next year there's already another team's schedule for next year apparently from what I'm reading. That is. The New Orleans seats. Traveling to the Miami Dolphins of course will be traveling to London will be home game for the dolphins. And then there will be a ravens home game as well there next year's Leo so saints at dolphins rams at home to to be determined. Jags at home to to be determined. And. We just had just got on Time Warner Cable there's a little while ago and he was telling me that he had been reading it used Tony Rossi of the one of the Cleveland outlets that overture wanna. Don't want that to be specifically that wasn't that person but there's been reports that the Brown's election be hosting a London game next year. So. When you look at the bills would have no chance to play there next year because. They don't go to Jacksonville. They don't go to LA it was the rams. They don't go to they won't quickly because there and I imagine an activation fourth in the division where Cleveland's gonna finish in their division that would be the cross over next year. For the bills and you are to have saints and dolphins. So I would say that at this point it looks like that is not going to be case for the bills but you never will see exactly how that works out. For the bills next year or the NFL I should say with one in the I don't think that's going to be one of the tees I don't think the bills will be in the next picture just by judging. How all of that is 803055888. Like fifty. Two by Vicki wanna jump on board today I asked that question at Twitter spot is upon question I'm getting a lot actually responses by the way Twitter at sell sports. Right. What's what is the equivalent. In any sports. Pro sport any of the pro sport on the best what was equivalent. They player in basketball getting seven straight triple doubles because Russell Westbrook has done. And I don't I don't know the answer that I was thinking maybe seven straight 150 yards from scrimmage games but. Don't even know I'd like I try to look that up by I get a lot of guys who can who have done it yet get how many games are eroding that it. And get a lot of interest responses here. Summit says seven Gordy Howe hat tricks in a row that's funny goal assist and a fight. Patrick thank you for the lap I appreciate that seventh straight retired air passing game penalty is early yet as just passing. I think you'd have to do something with passing and running or receiving. To do that T sizzle of summer says boy you create a game I hope we need seven ropes 300 is not. It's not uncommon. To have won seven straight 303. TD games passing. Says well yeah. But what is the equivalent. At any other pro sport of what Russell Westbrook has done which is seven straight. Triple doubles pretty credible on the record. The NBA is wilt Chamberlain's ninth straight triple doubles. And if he continues as to average triple double for the season the only person who's ever done that is Oscar Robertson back in 196162. Russell Westbrook is on fire. He is not playing in the charity basketball game going and it sprinkled on Thursday night. But if he was I would assume he would get another triple double because of lineup that's going to be out there although I would abide by us trying to fan and I don't think that. I'd be very successful we're gonna bring in Eric tolerate our satellite hope I think is right oh let me know what is it Chardonnay prequel that it's going out of Springdale. Next week and he is on the line this rate on the AT&T Alley Erika is a collar that is your last name. I Holler so here I have a question for your personal your at least bring bill Griffith institute. If someone at spring bill calls it spring the high school to the public dollar in the kitty or something. Now I think they went ointment a long time ago and it is caused by almost a Staten who has just got revised to a well so. Well so it's okay for me because replies why don't have to call it spring the Griffith institute anymore. Some of the old timers might want to do that but for the most part it. Sprinkle as well. All right well that's a whole other level called spring the high school that's a lot easier and it's on I appreciate it I remember I had I had nightmares traveling down there for sports that they you guys are great programs. I went to Cleveland hell we had some battles and football we have some battles in baseball and basketball. It's a place that's really enjoys. Other sports. Community that really rallies around their school their athletes and their kids and they have some great tradition that you guys do a really cool thing next Thursday. I'm gonna be a part of it as well but I'll let you got to just set the stage for everyone tell everyone what's going on their out of spring of next Thursday. Absolutely things certainly opportunity this Thursday December 15 were having a round ball rumble for rot while. And it's run by my sports and our staff and alumni vs some local celebrities and personalities and the main goals to raise money for Russell park entrances. Now your gonna have some. Celebrity jeunesse immediate members I don't take I don't put myself on the celebrity list although you might put out there I'd say I'm one of the media members playing plus you'll have celebrities but. How reliant serve it can give us a sense of some of the people that would be down there next Thursday playing in this game. I actually giant Cadbury talking to on the last hour is going to be participating. We also have John under god from channel to. Nick and all opera NBC sports soccer and owner of that he buffalo. Tom Martin. If you IDB's sports. Oh look how are you people I'm pastor. Corny Corvette out on the UK WQBW. Tyler dawn complete report over Australia and a few others I will mark spoke win. He was the winner of the TV show American grit he's also strangled bread so we got a nice little line up here. Yeah you do absolutely who's up who's on the other than who who are we playing against in this game. I their applications pretty tough you have. A mixture of teachers you have a mix of administrators and and I'm alumni you have Olivia I'm going in with a thousand point scorer. You have our building principal who was our football team that he shares as well track and field team yet artsy girls. And boys basketball coach who vote in the you know play ball so it should be good matchup. It should be and I. Accidentally be and I bet on the other team of I was actually bet because the lineup we have we got some guys some guys out there who. Out of the can really good ball that well that the other another try each other stuff but it's a pretty competitive unit. I know I'll just be passing the ball sort of embarrassed myself. I might be a hit reporter Julie generally I'd also don't want him I want to make sure I don't like throw air ball so I'll just pass it to Jolie Todd or jobless Kelly is taller you know and and you get up there by the way I. I think without it is a actual. Celebrities so we may be media members but you got the all time leader in three point shots here and what's your ideal timely high school passer until recently heavily. Right yeah and that we're excited to add Hammond and it is our students start a Twitter account for the year after the game for the class and another chapter of the levees and calling each other out and we have a little power rankings from week to week until academy and dropped on the list and in response to posted a video of him doing the work out. And an MB you know in the three point Erin dumping so I think the stats get to work out with them. Well I gotta be honestly say I've seen these power rankings I don't know why should be upset or be relieved that I haven't made the power rankings because I could be upset that so Heidi you know I don't know I could be a good player and I could be relieved because. If I'm out there that night I could absolutely have the pressure of and then very embarrassing myself I'm not actually that good so I don't know I should be honored I should be relieved that question be upset about that. We'll listen in a class had been put me out of power rankings and they say they've been going around scouting. Nice dress we east and stuff like that it's scheme tape from your time exceeds those around her pit that class so. There's one reason behind those power rankings let us. And there's a reason I'm not out of that. Recently your honor for a little bit but. Got people people have put in work can some people close up photos of them planning a Harlem Globetrotters so. And immediate this interview you're ranking might go up I don't know. That beat everybody are Eric Haller join us here in the UTT how late Thursday night next week sprinkle high school.

When you were growing up that you have like these big box hockey stores like this examining equipment there was more specialized. Well where where I was from. There's only one ought to call upon realized that we didn't we were I didn't live and a big big town. You know north they Ontario they only had to I can't remember what it was called but. There's only one hockey store and on and that's kind of where everybody. Everybody knew the owner Tom and years you try and now everybody trying to their deal out of them but. Use his pretty fair and no injure as if I have a till it's amazing when you come in here and you just look at all the you know from hockey stuff too. You know all the skiing. The snow board adding I mean helmets. Everything everything's seniors critical. And you know my son is Regis got a bit of its neighbors for her skate but at home Craig Adam. I don't know I've asked him what they got we have seen is gonna get but we have to ask what the F that is what they were so I'll tell you what went up regularly you know but. It's our home we wants to play hockey and you possibly low for hockey first while he makes a single national anthems but second of all then you want to play goalie I'm like dude. And he expects I come here and I'm like he doesn't have to be at they have great stuff he can do that. Well here's the thing if you're buying and if you're buying equipment for goaltenders brand new. Rightful mileage race that is gonna be an expensive. Venture but it. American hero well these are so over here this is all used. Goaltending equipment is that it yeah that is I mean it's just say this is amazing like their slate got to be thirty EU. Plus pairs of tides that are Rea drink specials don't nice to the bigger guys. 20% off all right some great stuff here great stuff not great self less laid down the key banks and I was there. We are about to leave a nice that they get their last that last hour played a set out just aim access illegal yet insured up they scored. Nice goal there like Al posada put him let's. Boy overall grade I saw a team that was not very crisp passing. The power play just could not get organized and they are put bodies in front of the net at six directly resulted in two different goals by the capitals. Well how'd it how did capital scorcher there goals in front of the net. Power play right. Which means that against the sabres penalty kill which is the worst in the on the national. This. I mean we talked to vote this the last week or two. This neighbors are really struggled in this area and I play this they are not gonna win games. If your specialty teams are not getting it done right now other powerfully did not work last night but let's not panic here right they were the top five I think going in the last night on the par place. But the penalty kill. Is second last in the league so what are we attribute this to when you sit there and you look at a 41 game it's actually 31 game is it's an open natter. But two of those schools were on the power play while you face a team that has a that's an ocean it. I mean that's going to be hard and any night especially when you're struggling yourself. On that particular unit what what does it cost me ask you don't actually it's horrible on the par will now. You know alive because they overplay overmatched in because he's the guy but you know what here's the thing that teams loaded right with health hockey players. It's the same thing is when we were in now Washington. We over play eagle badge and and and the shot came from the point from Carlson got hit in the net from my Johansson. Right now. I mean. I I I look at it nice today. You know I looked at last night did you look at the the minutes played by players I didn't I was actually just pulling up the stats right now from lessons usually how you did you notice something well. The first thing that sticks out to me is everybody's pretty proud in you know happy to see that that Rask mistress the line in his playing thirty minutes tonight we however stud defenseman. But the reality of it is is this. He shouldn't be playing thirty minutes tonight because I don't think he's the type offense defense and it should be playing thirty minutes he should be in the air in between twenty and 25. For right now were having to stretch him as far as we possibly can because obviously we don't have. You don't have confidence right 3011 now that's way too much. Goodness there's there's only certain. Defenseman in the league that can do that he's probably not want them. He McConnell don't get me wrong Carlson's 25 I mean. Carlson is in the lead defense yeah on on Washington is playing in amongst that one in meat in between 20/20 five minutes tonight yeah the other guy look at it is this. We ask Ryan O'Reilly did you ever. We need you to win all the face offs we need you to defend against all the best players five on five but when we have a power play Ryan. Ryan combine you have to score a schools and now when were on the penalty kill Ryan Ryan you have to kill apparently. Look at goal of his minutes last night for her for a for a twenty or 2419. 24 minutes that's ridiculous healer he easily led the team of post it was up there at 22 but. He lets you watch that out here's the thing though the coach you about let's say going into the year he wouldn't do that too. He said he did that to last a little bit eat too much they're falling back and doing that again. Absolutely kick. UK here's. A part of that is I gonna tell you the bigger problem the bigger problem is they feel that they have to do with this lineup which is somewhat healthy on the fourth line right now. On pretty much everybody is back except for Tyler let's. Tell me why you're playing a run rally 24 minutes tonight how is he sport to produce offensively for this hockey team because that's part of the job. Is he getting paid a lot of money. Idol fans. But he also getting paid to. Shut down five on five against the very best players in the game which I think he's done a great job up to this point right now. He's he's being put on the penalty kill. And you've got to do everything so it's not just do everything it is so it's not just that tiny skinny and they ask us. What you're saying in and out that this up from what I've said last couple weeks wondered out on the ice when I get closer I've been going a little lower. In watching him he's a Bulldog with the puck he's top of the game he plays. Irregular that famous fossil beautiful daughters right usually order Libya Bulldog when you have to you have to exert energized right exert power to appeal to protect the park. It's exhausting. And he does everything yet. That you want you to coach's dream that's why he's playing 24 minutes tonight but. You know my thought is why isn't there other players on the team let's say for example. Gergen sent. Can Gergen and Tiki bigger. Job description killing penalties to take a little bit more pressure and pine and rest. A Ryan right. You know. I let me ask and I am amazed by another. And Gregory by the way host the investigators and in you probably have touched on these kinds of things during your show but my weekend. Audience hasn't maybe get a chance to hear from your thoughts on what you do in this. Where we are seeing right Harry. Because he just seems really he should have been taking the next step in the evolution of him in the house how skilled at LT is and I know hat and without having Jack heard of he's playing better now but I don't know he's quite where I need to be a case of public this what are they. They say abort any NHL hockey player. They what is that half the season you're gonna how you're sick you're sick it's your second since while he's in it right now right and I don't think samurai and hurt. Is playing terrible but our expectations. Are now. On a different stratosphere. For samurai heart we want him to be great and we need it now these aren't the reality of it is he's he's only twenty years old. And he needs time to develop and he's doing right now you also have to be. You need to take a step back and say it's a little unfair to put all the pressure on 21 a twenty year old hockey player. That is missed. You know. Ryan O'Reilly for parts of the season Evander Kane. For parts of the season Jack cycle for a large part of the season Tyler Ennis like I'm not making excuses but we can't sit there and say samurai hurt. You're not doing what we expected YouTube because he has to be surrounded with great players. In order to produce and I think that once the season starts moving forward I think you're gonna see Sam. Engage a little bit more and I think you're gonna get a little bit more complex and tell you that second year for a for for pro athlete for a pro hockey player it's. Always the toughest. So yeah and I can understand and Jack in his second year Q and unfortunately that route a lot of it because of what happened early outs that's gonna get doubly tough upper hand to get to where you know he needs to be. Just look at her on the roster loaded up on the positive a guy I didn't really I did not realize how good health specialist Italy can fly. I mean we all news vehicles as the number one bell cow freeze he never got there. A postal as the number two but was this big drop from not seen it still isn't there's a big gap there. But now I see why he was the number one guy behind him cause he's a good hockey play yeah. Kyle if you're listening right now I wish you scored that one and now what was that the Fed play. I think it was right hurt I think so that it glom on the backside asks yes and I Smith than. You know those little things here are the turning points in games are right right right if that could have been put in an ad in the open at night I know that postal would love to have that shot back. But you know what when we when we sign guys say we because I got you are still part of the party line hurdle that you also where the city. I mean that makes you more likely I'd just like you know IIQ are these guys you know and I am I wish model but once we sign posts. I mean this was in another huge piece of the puzzle and and and right now has he really frowned. His niche with this team. He's he's so funny because that they'll line up has been jump into a theater in Jack like for them in this tent they had date they are just. You know. Now that Jack is back on that offside on the power play. There's a lot of things that this team moving forward are going to iron note in the next coming weeks. And I think it's fair to say that you know Kyle proposal has not disappointed at this point he's played. Real strong hockey for this team calm and I think he's going again. Better once everything starts to kind of solidified on the team and you know the pecking order of everything all the power play and penalty kill and everything else is being played it's can take a little bit of time because. This hasn't been healthy line. Anders and they're gonna find that they're gonna find little things I think. You know coaching staff who's is in tinker around again nature that. This teams rated ago. I think that hands its organization. Coaching GM I think that cancer. Yeah I like him for me. You know just starting with the DL men. I think he's done a real solid job you know you look at the guys that he's brought in Vietnam you know. He stayed with this plan which he had a plan we got here and he stayed with it and there's going to be missteps along the way we can debates and those. But at least they think. You Eddie the eagle if you gonna let it go to a spot at the plate to get there and he stayed that course yes and you know that we. If we you know I think nursery gear years. Had a tough and it's tough. Approach to sense that he was the one who had to throw load. He was the bearer of bad news that he basically sat down and said this teams in struggle. Four for quite awhile but we're gonna stick to that he was removed memory comes in. Emery has a plan he has a plan in his head what this team is going to be like. He's made a lot of moves. Up to this point. But hasn't seen that polish products right on the ice so we can't say. Whether it's. Been doing well there are failing. All all you know always. In time moving forward into the season you're gonna see more of the product of what timber is put together and I think that once this team com. Fiennes finds the team chemistry together. Dan it's gonna help these guys in and focus in and how he wants it they want to run on the ice. This will be. He got a few more minutes to break and then rapidly it that number one question for me on the ice facing the team that with that great mate but. Before I do that on the way out here real quickly Nate let's do it three dogs Saturday time. It's gonna play games my god. Three dogs at at seventeen to fourteen years the underdog retreat for about a week number one. I'm go with a they're gonna win their first game tomorrow I'm taking a plus the points even on the field the browns plus five and half against the bagels these are incredible stats here greatness of this. A favorite has covered only five times the last nineteen when these two. They can any NFL team whose witness after we gate. 5022. And three against the spread. Any NFL team that's winless at 05 or worse with they weak rests with the browns 23 Ivan one against the spread I'll take that route plus I've have that one. Here's an ample my friend I did a double life there on win the game. To get the giant qwest arena happily help voice tomorrow look at this kid over here he even Jake and I didn't quite get out now isn't like it. I Dallas where their favorite awful it is a favorite. The only four and six team against the spread their last Wadi. Not a good team in that situation as the giants and that's what they need this victory badly in the playoff race I'll take that giant list rehab. They are what matter is what is your in this moment ago with. You know what Imus which I've known you here. All I had rebate listed on the throw that out Craig. I'm going with the bills while I haven't done enough one time this year that cover my took them. I do it again pills plus three at home against Pittsburgh Steelers Q like that. Eyes silently speak. I just think about yes I like that it's got good five I'd like I'd like you can that'll Obama I would get a good night's at a more confident the bills and the Packers that was my third one. Cleveland plus five at giants history to have those plus three. Number one. Issue facing the sabres on the ice for many of you right now I'm a question I should say. If that exactly right. Wrapping things up near buffalo sports 3840 McKinley parkway Craig made a nice enough to join me here. For the last couple of segments and major blow up plants I appreciate that always. Appreciate the time spent talking sabres. I we get audiences it's here you would not be enough to get there on Monday through Friday. This time a year Tuesday through Friday Amman. The types of Monday's woods and a twelve battle and a VG are simulcast and edgy when you think what little TV thing and it's pretty. It's fun yeah and that's why do you think you're on TV anymore like after the show ocean and think about it. You know what it was action the auditor racking. You know the first. First couple right. And now it's like being in your -- is literally Marty myself and BP it's like being in appease. To make your mom coach it's awesome well speaking of you guys had AS really lively discussions about goaltending recently and I think that every. Is the number one question right now about the team on the ice is not an issue they've played pretty well combine but. Should this be actual open competition between. Letter and Nelson because I think Paterson doesn't. Can make that case to be playing a lot more obvious OK so you can make the case com and land to Emory. Palm brought it ball these goaltenders. We're ready. Plan he had planned any had a guy they paid number one pick for. So I think that that all that that. That makes him I don't fault the guy got a role because America has been number one in radio and developer. Meals he signed as a free agent. I think he would trade for a while you trade form at any rate if round pick OK Ali Al threatened area. Not a whole lot to its July oh that's right it took goaltenders are based the first rounder and it and it and and right now. I believe that the goaltending. Has in. The best part of the sabres he's been good both of them have played well mom Nielsen has been able to hole wrote. A few wins. Which is making people. Com start to shift towards hey this guy should be the starter all the time he got let them run with the teams this one against tough teams out. Com. My my thought is. Is done you can't you can't hole I thought it. Emery has a plan his plan is the number one I jobs is. Is and it's not like the number one has played portly ESP eyes and I played poorly he's played very well at this point. So why it takes something away from moment start the player back up we've got to back up his entire career right. Why he got away mom gets to say well because this guy's played. Nine games this year and past it is there's something to let's say they were to start giving deals and more times because he's earned it because letter. Has played poorly is there something to that letters plea could drop off he's not in a regular basis while who know who knows I would water speculate on that media gets better. Here maybe he has a right maybe he has more time to work with the goaltending coach he's been very good obviously with both those guys media gives one term wartime. On latter has never had a an opportunity to play ball Sunnis and the National Hockey League as a number one he's he's been hurt allotted time. Com. I think up to this point. Robert miners played very well he's played very well he's not the reason why this team's hockey games right com and you know Nielsen. Is in this is is in a situation that he's played exceptionally well and in very surprising. And now people want it to us. Let's go to guy who's winning and I don't I don't really disagree with that either at this point there's going to be a point in the season where you're gonna say. We need wins. Yeah local tenors are playing well and I have to run with a guy who gets hot we thought yeah right before I let you go. League questioner I got the standings pulled up here I the entire national hot extra innings give me eighteen. You are pleasantly surprised then that while they surprised they're playing well give me team that you're. Kind of disappointed that you thought they would be. Better than they are in the standings while I gonna start with my team that's struggled this year and you know you can actually go to goal with one in each conference OK I want each each conference Florida Panthers. I've been mind boggling to me they need some huge moves in the offseason picking up some big guys on defense yet signing their young guys. I think that I thought I would. Going to be a team that would be contending. Maybe for the Stanley Cup 12124. On the street. My other team is Dallas Stars in the Western Conference. They are emerge as mind boggling to me. There are very very deep team they're very solid. But. If they were to have our two goaltenders right now. They might be one of the top teams in the league great qualities this Puerto further coach at Virginia they've put four cremated there to Florida. Remove the cold right. That GM came in and now is the head coach but they have games dismal since he's taken over and the funny thing is. Com. Is that gallant right head coach you know he would he was above 500. Winning percentage is easily it is leave it troubled that it Alice. No because you don't you don't have to you have to look any further and their goaltending is absolutely awful. They should assemble them to the miners and two minor equal partners off and they would be better off. These guys right now they are killing team the goaltending sold that and here's the thing you know. It it's tough to say but it is it is what it is. Real quick team is surprised at playing better that that Columbus Columbus lay out its Columbus Blue Jackets might be the real deal here there's seven you know 165. While were at that they've only played 25 games. Bomb and yet their daily six points or. If they win their next two games. They will be the number one team in the national hockey into amazing. And I mean this team has something gone torts who we who PD and I we're all over at the World Cup. For as the comments. This that the other but. He's obviously doing something well there Columbus and Nat teams. That team has a real. Nice surgeons of of young players. And you know raid on Columbus it's awesome I don't know if anybody is going to be the much okay is sure it's Olsen on the what they can do when you know a little something about what it's like when that team is good up there can be pretty darn well I changed it you have to try and Ron Carey Price yeah. Let's face it our he's he's a big part and I also wanna say the two players that they brought in three players rigel off. Webber and Andrew Shaw. Those three players were huge additions to Montreal here there. Thanks for doing this I really appreciate.
