You're listening to the NC gators on WGR Sports Radio 550 and MSG. And before we get to all of that's stuff fellas let's. Get to the point you wanna go to the point personally far apart early Gemini what at first before and after that one minute opening quickly yes sabres have thirteen game. And generic pop scheduled only four at home for home games in nine on the road. The only forum games that it jets flyers Dallas and Detroit everything else is on the road to get Montreal took place. I'd you know Nashville Toronto Tampa it is going to be eight go people but. I and I looked at the schedule for the month and I thought I saw the first five and I and then you guys reminded me that the rest of the games I mean it's going to be a tough month for the sabres especially. With and you know how things are going areas. Not even easier because then you have nine San Jose. Chicago Rangers again Saint Louis Nashville. I mean the next two months are. Yeah. I knowing him. Remember when we talked about where your teams that you know when you this is how you figure out where your team is that. We just listened to Marty give off the next few months of of games and what what of the games look like. Hard day all look hard arch area that there you go now you know where your team's Trimarche just off too by the way I don't know yet he. Easy schedule yet the Carolina's the New York Islanders to Florida is now that and you didn't respond now you've got the got to respond and it's even if. Tons art Pavel being on a team that looks at that schedule no no team would look at that schedule C it's easy but their trouble being on the team that can look at that say while we could win ten games. January Pittsburgh pentagon earlier Chicago Scott Willis yet the Rangers they look at their schedule right now. But what it would Pittsburgh looks at the Rangers it doesn't say it's going to be tough guy like Jack. On a play that team because I want to show the world we're best. It's not like a well it's going to be a tough game yet you look at the schedule so it's a tough schedule but you get up for it because you're excited about it. Speaking of excited Austin Matthews was named first star of the week after recording his twentieth goal of the season. Matthews edged line gain to lead all rookies with twenty goals and 32 points let's go to the point your files yes. Thirty seconds on the clock that's what we're doing you forget about what this week is thirty seconds on the clock. Who would you rather build your franchise around whining or Matthews. Mario what you go first or. That's an easy and it's Austin Hughes Jesus sediment. Number one you look at lining a Winger Mathieu is a sentiment when he's been able to do. Offensively this year scoring goals we had guys like Zach Hyman Carter brown and his wings. I mean he's got the talent and when everybody was right now Matthews and seeing any doesn't have the complete game and lining is that your goals Goran we should have lining. To meet Matthews the started up a notch and is. Put it on his back he Stan Utley out think the criticism and I'll turn it up and that's what you're getting these incredible. And on time and expect that. I'm gonna ask who I'm gonna fire. The same sentiments that Marty you guys are Matthews is. He's the real deal. Twenty goals he's second in the National Hockey League behind the best player in the world Sidney Crosby. He has 32 points and is a plus players playing. 1745. A game. This guy is only gonna can continue to get better. His old offensive scheme is very strong but his defensive game is strong all feel he's going to be. Ray player for a long time. You know let's. I don't normally chime in here but because both of you were in the same page I I absolutely disagree with the absolutely disagreement. And here's why lining. Doesn't have to be he'll be the sniper but he does have to be the star where you don't Matthews is going to have to be. The star and the sniper in Toronto listen all I'm saying is I'm. Don't you build your team around a star. The question is would which player would you want to build a team around somebody that's why it is going to be a star you said. He doesn't have to be just Darman accuse us to be just when he can be a star while not having to be the key guy I think maybe the guy that is they do and we ovals I think vote on my team but she asked us to pick one I'm gonna pick a settlement because you build your team down the middle Kerry. No owners and your both red cent that you were wrong that's. A flat our wrong flat out wrong. Todd. The league leading Blue Jackets 255. And 456. Points fellas aimed to become the just the second team in NHL history to win sixteen consecutive games. Within a single season behind the 9293 payments was paddle Lehman net thereto for the I want to be going to 43 in those nineteenth. All our younger Biden set the record for most yep best start to a career summary for gold and ten penguins were suddenly went seventeen and all. Deeply Columbus plays Edmonton tonight and the caps Thursday will the Blue Jackets. Extend. To a record streak. River dynamic and I am going to use say yes they are and the reason why is you you try and identify. How older winning games. Are they squeaking by. Are some games are they playing bad but they want anyway note this team is playing. Terrific hockey are all in sync they have four lines that are that are playing for them. They've got a lot of its high and open the players that play strong defense of hockey side. Leno. Hartnell I mean you keep going on and on in you just name the players this is a very deep deep. Hockey team with the best goaltender in the world. Blow yeah. Second best or second hurdle has Italy this year after a price and do that but a guy I think no they will not extend because here's the problem. They just played a very emotional game against the Minnesota Wild Minnesota twelve games in a row. Columbus on fourteen being met on New Year's Eve it was very emotional. You focus on that game and then what happens after that game is you have a let down. I don't know why I and I know John zarrella really well as a coach he's gonna make sure that he gets everybody ready but I think it's human nature afterward got. Big emotional win you finally get to fifteen has got to be elect. Down. And Clinton's gonna get. Torts are. All sorts geez I guess they can get an average team look great. Here's the thing this is why they're gonna continue. Because the late the same way for the past fifteen games their coach in torts. Is gonna have these guys ready because torched knows that act that after that big emotional game that there's going to be a let down so he's going to make sure that there's not a lack down. And that type of players they have on the team. Our workhorse type players I named them sawed for Leno Hartnell. Colbert I mean you just go on and on down the list of this team and they are complete work courses where. Steele. Is an accurate way. And it gets out of their apartment fire alluded last two games they play with fire a little bit I mean they gave up side or up three nothing's liberal and I think in and the Bruins came back against Minnesota being allowed him back in the game a couple of times though. Have you enough fire. You can always feel when a streak is starting to kinda come to an end to squeaking by the last couple games we'll listen our team that at and I'm not trying to make this about Mir the junior sabres but we we won 25 games in a row. And it really it's hardly you find yourself winning gains just on pure skill and determination and I mean. The mistakes that are amounts could hold sending a mean lucky bounces and you can feel it start to dwindle and you can. It's like when you heart rate of about lake when you're on a team with a guy goalie that's playing with a really long streak I mean. You can just sense that like once it's over your comic off our right now we re so added. And and start a new one are we not to worry about that it's not one more added thing to it is going to a team that is a must win anyway. What's incredible about that streak is fifteen and RO. Only three world overtime one overtime to shoot outs only three were passed regulation. At least twelve regulation wins in fifteen straight that's pretty impressive. Tears wash wrote terror winter classic just for. Who is electable that was not interest in and now since I've lost I've lost it for the winter classic I mean I don't know how many times a gutsy Chicago and a winner in new investor. Aren't about the weather class yes it is in the league issued a out a set of rules. For what would happen if the game had to be called after two periods because it was raining so much nearly quit. If we can't play the game today we'll play it on Tuesday. If we can't. Late Mort in one period will finish at two well F after two period the game is called it will be considered officials that the school will stand. If there is a high after two periods and we have to call the game. We have a shoot out to decide the game on every when he fort in two months at United Center B port the next game. It is crazy I was like. You start a game. When to shoot out to decide a game from two months ago and then you're gonna play the next game. It was just baffling to me that actually out all those rules of everybody knew it was going on it was comical like it very animated with the wind thinking. I'll look it up and is that if we can't play any game today or tomorrow with a straight we will Altman we will see what the dates of the Scott trade center and played I gave indoor at some point. It's just an end DC Roberto Luongo this week which was amazing. Bobby loose as. It would be a shame if players wait their whole career to play an outdoor games. And didn't get the lead because that un force in circumstances if there hasn't it goes back to Luongo not starting the game. Eddie lack starting the game right toward relish says I'm playing it the lack in the outdoor game in Vancouver and the Longo waited a whole career to play in when those big games outdoors all fun. Instead on the ban cell. You fill poking fun at poking fun you know lost Marty's like. Two players really. Air now all about whether they get into an outdoor gamer not a Wii U yeah you played that stadium series tinian. Not play in the winter classic in Philadelphia with the Rangers as a backup Lundqvist played but yeah I. So I was bummed out when I missed out on a buffalo won because I got three of the year before and I'm like I was just a year away from playing an outdoor game right. I was bonanno and I found out that we were going there I was really excited about it it's fun it's fun for your family. Gore on the ice for the family ski the day before we practice. And then we were on the ice my son Jacob was on the ice in this full goalie gear taking shots on the players. My dad was skating around my father allows you these guys and put his deeds and when he years. It was it was I was very proud to be part of this event and that in my family there. Being that it was Philadelphia the all drove down from New York great our people from buffalo so yeah it was I I wish I would add another chance at an outdoor game and the players are really excited about. I feel bad for everyone trying to mimic the greatest game of all time the first one. Well it was great quality great in the Edmonton Oilers. What it was agree with hookers you know why. It was obvious as you guys whether nukes and played that winter. Wisdom mine's 25. And with the windchill was minus forty is fantastic in the snow. And certainly trying to like an odd how well he's got there with a talker on all you're talking about when it in Edmonton. Now that which shows that he would owe a debt to and that guys were frozen to the bone. Heritage. Heritage winner where woody when Nicklaus was here in buffalo. And it was the birth out of doors and see here's the thing here and it ago with the course of the game was in 192219. OK so let's market into that stuff. Marty and his stats and it's all you can rely it was the next question the whole. Hold on with this to the point stuff I guess my point is Marty when I'm watching Chicago for the fourth time and I'm being sold on TV about how much fun they're having and how great it is to be here. They have three Stanley cups you've guys his plea World Cup I mean. The players can't even tell you what they won't be they won't be as excited about is as say the world juniors next year here that's a completely different dynamic of an outdoor game. Watching a pro it's like watching college basketball March Madness vs NBA basketball next year you're watching. Millionaires playing at -- sake what a great day but I'm sure he'd be lost news minus or he wouldn't of had such a wonderful site. As late in life for the war in case the one was at Wrigley Field turn one was at Soldier Field. One was in Saint Louis and what was the other ones are they getting overdone. No they understand that there's a lot of them but they've had what what I was more and it and they. Excited about. Was to go and see what it was going to be like in the baseball stadium in Philadelphia done locker rooms right and then when the Rangers played at Yankee Stadium. Those stadiums series it was they weren't at Yankee locker room they were at Yankee Stadium it was exciting to be under different. Different arena and if you did it every year at Wrigley Field after a bit they'd be like okay we're back here again night but to be in different. Areas different arena has different stadiums. Different crowd different cities different atmosphere. That's what is fun about the game. You can play a hundred games in the same building all the time it's still enjoy the game hockey but that's surrounding. Environment is is wedded makes its. It's time to take it somewhere else though it's time to take this game somewhere that it never been before I don't know. One in buffalo next year you do an old seniors now in Iowa went in buffalo on army on a lake on a frozen lake could never do that only a 100 tickets because no Central Park. You just put the rink I'll go to the Rangers again Marty beard is here his injuries you know like get over. Grand Canyon in them by scandal and everything about the king. And satire so you know what what other is part. I am I don't like the right no no no in the always does the ring no organ to a Jumbotron played again. I'm a bit of a crusher and into certain were you present that's all we have to hear what we get a lot of phone it's crazy I feel the same way it's like I used to I think you're gonna get him like. Henrik Lundqvist and now I can't stand the fifth. I'm an old idea of the funded payoff on this show you guys are going to be gut going over you're gonna be like on an accused of good. To your hair does that work the news would use I know how he uses it. Headed older though Marty. Question or yes sir node does Hendrick Lundqvist is is a behind the scenes question does Henrik won. It's going to be our buy sell trade a guy it's going to be a good buy some trick is to is. Yeah are so let's go back to to the point. The guy no we're past that when it is so my question but the winner classic was it to wasserman a classic there's terror Sankoh had two goals yesterday. Following a forty goal season leads team and eighteen that are eighteen goals and twenty reassess. What terror cycle it is totals from last year. They can be a forty goal guy could be a 5050 goal guy I think that he will surpass. His point totals from next year. Goals. Assists. And points. He's a more mature player. You know today they rely on him so much for his offense that he's gonna get be given every opportunity Q produced and he's an elite player he is no the goal scorer in this league he he knows how to get it done. I think he's gonna improve. Marty server of the left two seconds on the clock there are buy sell or trade the question will be Henrik Lundqvist. Uses a blow dryer that's cool but we're not gonna answer that right now so you're gonna wanna stick around here would riven Marty FC about that Marty go ahead terror Sankoh Topps is totals from last year. Not this year. The only reason you won't tops the stills from last year is canned hits terrorists ankle and knots and and it's got played four and a half minutes in the first period yesterday. And everybody thinking of your best goal scorer it's that whole game that winter classic theoretically terrorists ankle four minutes. Let them play and any puts about their filing for the next two peers and his course. I think hit just so in his ways and Vladimir terrorist Sankoh is not obviously not liking the way that. And Hitchcock is still bite but. That I think it won't happen this year I think he could if if the Eagles score but with somebody got the idea. Handcuffs off of them his best year in the NHL with 74 point yeah. It's on page three two's year tops I'm Stanley. 45 to fifty goals he scored forty this year I'm looking cycles he's a sniper he needs to get to 52 really. Get himself into this camp goes to Crosby. Don't benched in late discussion. I don't think they'll ever put himself there. Is a sniper. He'll be at 35. To 45 goals scored every single case or what what is he is he so when you sailed back skin or another guy. I can tell you that Ovechkin just brings more than just goals I mean this energy is as a talent he is but what else does terrorists think would do as your defense jam. C. And does he make other players what does that matter is due. Scores will. And stamp co s.'s a pretty solid. Defensive player. Doesn't play center and Mori's displease wings. He plays wings bullet proof that he can play right or left. He does not. He play the wing thing. The language barrier does have its benefits on time and nobody wanted to bring you just know it's comical unless you can win an argument with too many plume fifth. But overall I. That is wrong but I. Accidentally you can win it. Are right speaking of winning it there's that speak Yang and grab JJ after the show. Tom former predators captain Shea Weber returns to Nashville for the first time since being traded to the Canadians. In exchange for. Who won the sue band Webber trade. K is too early to tell. It's too early to tell I would say that I still believe that Nashville won this event trade because I think long term Sudan will have. Given more to the national predators organization. On the ice off the ice and for a longer period of time. Now if you'd ask me November 1 artist Adam Weber is way better in Sudan right now but. You could see that whoever's kind of slowed himself down more to his regular pace and I still think long term Sudan will be that. They hardly find something. I know we're really is is going here so. I like them both but they're both extremely they're they're completely different occupiers. One is a very dynamic flashy. All fence of type defense men kind of more meaning me look at me and you have. I Shea Weber. That is your prototypical. Perfect defensemen. He is a big strong man he's offensively. Gifted and he is a defender and one of the best atom right now. Shea Weber is the best. But maybe through longevity. You might have cases he's ever wanna Norris has. Who she whoever. He's come close so many years soul. You know he's a guy he's got to be I don't know what's he up there in your. You're paying for Norris trophy candidate. You know is still the leading candidate a month ago I think again I think he's the brands earned karlson and Victor Hedman are going to be the guys again. Probably had been here it's I think now Brent Burns has fifteen goals he's on pace for over thirty. It's that this is any discipline problems and well this is my from the NHL we reward. Defenseman the best defensemen because of points you need to have two trophies yeah the fourth after trophies. The defensive forward nabbed a good idea BP did did die hard the Art Ross and all that innocent thing would the defenseman. While I get reward the best defensive defensemen don't my best overall defenseman and best offense of the weather stretches three different category ability to hate you as Democrats now are either just. Categories old offensive defenseman overall defensemen which would be the greatest overall defenseman will be nick Lidstrom KK. But my point is is that the greatest defenseman is Bobby York. Okay the greatest defensive defenseman would be. All time. Mike Ramsey there Robinson where Robinson Robinson. I mean it's like there's three there's there's I there's three categories there I would say you know you have to do is just like you do and afford an overall. That's defenseman and and best offensive defensemen which now you separate. Burns Carlson you can't put him in the overall defense and category because you've got them. Violate federal all the fast in the NHL without a question edged right sooner. Excuse me yeah you heard me. All the old yes I'm psyched up to this the best offensive defenseman obviously we know best overall defenseman Brett how do you say overall it French overall. OK overall. Who finals final topic for prom. Houses segment called again the report January. He sees De'Angelo from Arizona this week. Be suspended for three games without pay for physical abuse of an official. During. The game burst Calgary on Saturday yes we watched it earlier. Nicole me it's like if you're watching this at home but you can see it. Here's go ahead Marty thirty seconds argument sure it is. Not a tree in suspense this it would happen is he got this from the linesman grabbed vote of the handles are pushed him away any Angela just can personalize it and times. He didn't shove it in the chest he didn't slap them if they incidents that Donald. He didn't try to punch him he just try to push the arms down below that Anderson that physical. Abuse of official there's a rule for that and as zero tolerance but does he was fine what event McCain did it to the linesman DOD was. Much the same and is not going to be anything there's so. Deadlines and have a job to do it off but I don't think that was a three game suspension probably because he's a young kid and he acts and the Mets. So what's his first name. He. Exactly. Party and that my point Anthony. No one knows who is known care serious we're playing in Arizona till I never even heard of the guy before and it got a three game suspension for something that's complete joke. And it jealous thrown young kid under the bosses trying to set a standard and can't. Use any that the quality towards. A rough week and you wanna go further. If you if you look at what Evander Kane did the other night. It should be you should have a five game suspension. Because it was way worse than what this young kid. Yes those little games in the NHL is linked mainly Syria yourself in they're not just go around. And trying to get away from the raft and written your arms and trying to get out action be in this this kid did nothing. He's getting I think the way he spoke to the defense to the refereed the lines comb my daughters are all okay might and soft. Getting soft you can you really stuff I just not showing I understand that this is only that this kid got a three game suspension for I don't know whimsical and hands down I think the waste and say. Pitcher. You know after he hands off of me and don't touch me. They're saying. In twenty games in the NHL he could not build up a reputation to be hard on the referees have fewer than 34 years and this is a third or fourth time that you push refereed and you build up a reputation. Then maybe. Let me finish our games they'll tell means got a rep. Haitian don't don't misunderstand what I'm I there are there are refs and linesmen it grab you when you're you're doing some changes you wanted to rural. I mean you can't tell you but would somebody from the Rangers were suspended a few years ago from like six games for bees have an official business that is on Carcillo. Carcillo Carcillo. Overreaction I think by the league over suspension wasn't it was worse than that it was being used because it's. It was a arsenal. And who cares about cars nobody cares so let's suspend a guy that no one cares about justice. SATA standard well you know like you that the this De'Angelo anti need to be tangible. Where I've never I don't know who indicated that never even heard his name before and he's played what twenty games in the NHL Marty up. And why not use this kid Moroccan if this happens Sidney Crosby either darkness suspended him Carcillo is spent and he. It. It is what I say Marty how many games occur so you right okay that's all I wanted to send a care. Or how many games they took away on all upset I'm fine. I don't think. I don't think it's it's warranted of a three game suspension this particular. Case but I do see where the leak is sending a message I wish they'd send a message and some other ways too like. It's a good example Kate can't do that officials need to be respected and that's that especially with the way the game's going if fighting is going to be less than last. The one thing you don't want is guys getting aggressive with an official as they're trying to break up more fights which seemingly they're trying to do because they're getting tweets about why are they. Breaking up all these flights probably because there prize to. Buy sell trade Kwame comeback and also we're gonna give our state of the sabres probably some rotted ladder talk in there. And honors Nelson so stick around Andrew Peters Craig remain Marty here on investigators WGR Sports Radio 550 and amnesty. Yeah. We're back with more of the instigate us presented by MP Carol hard. Welcome back to the as skaters Andrew Peters Craig we're very Marty you're on WG or Sports Radio 550. And MSG sabres played tonight in New York rib. Times are dropped. 7 o'clock seven is dead. Who sets and only one feeling Marty you'll be you'll be a bit long before curfew. Yes probably. With biker beauty. Aid. All the Al that erroneous. It cool hey you know all I'm the one that's getting soft round here let's not lose focus of that yes. And I want you to. Talk about beautiful me. Alia. Soul. Just before the break we bought by sultry Marty don't choose to wanna talk and okay well. The because they them tonight sailors play tonight. In new York and probably one of the best looking athletes ever walked the planet. At that just happens in one of the best goal is to is but not without a cup Marty he needs a cop he needs a cup by. He is Henrik Lundqvist and buy sell or trade today is going to be about Henrik Lundqvist. And by selling traders brought to you by buffalo sports where you can go and buy sell. And trade could used equipment and they have lots of good new stuff to go check it out awful sports on McKinley parkway sort buy sell trade. Don't wanna buy solitary and the sabres right now because not a lot going on right now but. Henrik Lundqvist uses a blow dryer to make sure that that hair is pristine and perfect. And I and the reason why I I want this to be the but look at this guy I mean look. At this guy okay. Is that his brother program now that's him that's an. This debt is generalized to the I am gonna apply it yes because. Are the things I think that at some point you have to use hair dryer to get the flow going or Hendricks got. You know look in week you look in here and all of that with this year you know all in black. I guess talking immutable drier you know why. Because his hair never removed. His hair is set in late. You watch the game tonight when Hendrick Lundqvist got a ticket mask off party and shake it it's all part that if you'd tell him. If you tell us for now that he has a blow dryer as walker his agents are typically. Just do yourself a favor. No I've not seen them use the blow dryer after game because let me tell you is here he gets this hour. You've is that how it looks a little Nancy it's a product is Dan. And it's perfect again and I'm like how does that work. It's just it's fantastic. Which we do that to face the for packages joking hey I'm talking about goalie and I don't know if but Anders Nilsson tonight so we Il it's. Seles was again the Sheldon Nelson so. Maybe something there for to get the team sparked a little bit of Sweden vs the sweetest Nelson vs. Lundqvist got a try to knock off your fellow hunter Leonard latter would have been against Lucas as well who who played last game against the Rangers won that big game. Mr. Nelson. That's at nine it's a question Marty for you I'm answering an question. So why was that there was a certain lenders that. Does matter mom I'm not as a censure but. There was the game ours Nelson played nine game. Plating credible. Just so happened that king Henry took a sabbatical was not acting if you few take a leave about to leave of absence for only had his way and I guy is game was nowhere nearly terrible now so hopefully this neighbors skin and then and Hank. Has this memory. Hippies played bad against that team. And it was kind of a point in the season where he needed to step up. He gets up for dosed at the games ago. Or anything. He's gonna be tough to beat just gonna be a shadow YA RD wildly out for Hank. If you want no known nothing shop if the sabres won a win tonight it's at 21 game you need to play hard defensively. And not give the Rangers stats second a third goal he did that's gonna be game over if you do. All right rift that was a very long buy sell trade. Does he is a blow dryer or not. Yours is just a man this is a little light touch agree. That's the question losing your job I got it for many rim you know if I don't want to know the use an air dryer jock I would want an old pot is his hair silky smooth. Let's guts more liberal like is molded shampoo. It's on the ocean is that. No I I thought it was a layers when UC takes a bath and here and it's perfectly in like he has helmet. Amazing interview him you mean the guys as the perfect pass it and he plays guitar and John McEnroe. Kind of across anyway incredible enough that we can make that our buy sell or trade presented by buffalo all sports and Lundqvist is going to start tonight. Let's go around leap or not rallied around a team do little state of the sabres what what's the mental state of the team right now. Going into tonight's game. Is is a case of me it is it doable I guess fellas because I mean I don't ever really remember. Needing to be there but a team needing to hit the reset button completely and quite honestly cleaners and a little late for that. No it. It's never too late to press did that reset button like the clean slate because what the slate clean whatever because. You can do that in March it doesn't matter where you are. But to do it is extremely hard. To say I'm gonna forget about what's just happened the last week and focus only in the future is hard because you always. Grab a little bit of the past which you a little bit of the frustration a little bit at the disappointment. When things are going good to Columbus Blue Jackets you grab the positive which you from game to game. It's really hard so I think what have they done. What is through each game. Then there buildings something. The Columbus Blue Jackets are like Columbus Blue Jackets days they they just didn't all of a sudden. Go out there play one game and you know they had lived in every game no they have small little details. That everybody. Everybody has bought into. Yeah defense first caring about their zone which creates. Offense in the offensive zone and they've got guys driving the net hard. That the goals that are scored are not these pretty little goals that are on. The highlights every night. Their goals that are are nasty in their driving the net hard they're getting champions and they're playing strong simple hockey buffalo. Has a very difficult schedule coming up in the next month. But they don't have to worry about what's in front of them they have to worry boat just the game tonight. And they need to do the little things. That will give this team success. What is coming to dumbing down what is. The little things that we'll have give this team successor now because. It's not I'm not gonna talk playoffs or standings for a good month. Because it doesn't matter because. It's. It's about the little things would I'm gonna watch a game tonight. And if I look at the little things and witness to a final to. How about the passing how about. Ramp up to speed because while Italian up markedly Antananarivo passing back a little little things I look at it and they don't often do they connect. On the passes through no proposal to push the pace. When it they're slowing the game down by carrying it through the neutral zone you know they're not making did defensemen. I adjust their game are switching from one app via the other half when the ice by just eating it through to neutral zone. When are you gonna pass and try to catch a defenseman adding to make a decision am I gonna close the outside on you or am I gonna worry about that did the middle of the ice. The third little think those things that. The Rangers are doing a Pittsburgh thing was that Nolan and its neighbors are having a tough thing to watch the simplest little thing. I was watching the winter classic yesterday and Jonathan Toews comes down the wing. And it was plain senator but he comes on the boards and he tries to walk a defenseman OK. If he chips that park. Now he walks she tries to watch the defenseman turned the puck over Saint Louis goes down this course okay. Very uncharacteristic. Play by a guy like John to John Toews who is Stanley Cup champ Olympic champ World Cup champ. Those are the little plays that cost teams now. This team doesn't have appointed Jonathan Toews to say okay we go back and try to get that they were yesterday for Chicago but. They have the the track record to show. That they have the star power in the smarts to play that style game to win. The sabres me too many of those plays way too often. You talked about little plays a simple plays it is those little plays that literally separates the team. From a win or loss is not a missed chance in front and outer pole shot when people complain about right are hitting the crossbar twice in the game. It's the little plays it's a little player like what Jack article made the other day if he just held his ground that part doesn't get out of his only mean Arco down. 165 feet. I mean. Being good but again it comes I don't think Lou I'm suit. Did did pox and pucks out that passing. That simple game. Those are all things and and does this the attention to deep pills that stops and starts. I hate there'll cliches right of the problem as we're gonna get and if you don't you don't go to us and this is war talk more attention to details.

But worth mentioning well going in to tell you if there defensive T. The most in the NHL so they have to be they have to rely on having better defensive instincts beast wrong in their defensive zone. And you know wait for opportunities. To me is. At a come down to reduce the we talked about little details but. You Walt outscored in New York Rangers the AD yet on the roster again the transition game points awhile so to me it's gonna have to be. Penalties we don't purpose play in the defensive zone with a purpose. Played a neutral zone structure you're left wing lock our. Depending our where do you want to do right wing lock and left wing lock whatever. Plea that would structure so you don't give the Rangers any room guys come to wait time in speed and and guys and then you know wet reliably be your partly that's in. Your key. For to be in this season. At ten election dial especially in Boston five and three and all of that stuff while those three nothing happened but still. Oh wait for the opportunity. Don't force. It's not going to be if you force against the Rangers it's coming back to haunt you wait for your opportunities. Late this strong structured gain. Don't give the Rangers any room but boring game in Jersey devils won cops for playing boring hockey you're on the road.

You've either got to make a push every got to make a push so you're looking at Philly. The last dot sec and things what can I playoffs on Wednesdays and Thursdays and Mondays and I'm not there and Tuesdays and Fridays. I'm. Standings and playoffs. I didn't say that they were the start of the year and just saying that from the the mindset of a player I am not. I'm not rule area ten points behind Boston and they have. Four games in hand there are eight points they give their own Levitt points behind Philly and they have three games there are seven games before low 500 if you considered a RM Marty here I don't like you know like you're negative at a French travel solidarity negative.
