No you didn't just say that because you know he that you're does that river and have the tape has no shot nor the whole it out of things act is that the same thing you know gag man for sure is seriously into the shove some in his mouth so that he maybe about chicken from Jim stakeout or something why aren't there Danny how you doing man did you seek god to watch the game last night your flyers I know here. Your are working with the flyers but that doesn't mean that your heart is completely left awful but still recent rise at all outcome of the game last night. Not really. You know the papers have been playing better hockey lately these days that. I have been playing more solid gains and you know the flyers have their ten game winning streak. In December and since then is it's been tough it's been tough for them to find it back to the net and stop supplying them a wave. Two win games. And you know they've been around a little bit of a lot lately. Little personal aren't are not very surprised by by the at all. You think that. If you think. Ball with the wildcard spots where they are and are are you looking at the parity in the league and all I mean is it not incredible but look. And say al-Qaeda has islanders in the and the devils but even still there are thirty and forty points respectively sabres have 41. And then a wildcard spot 48 I mean. Anybody can make the playoffs nowadays Danny if they get the right run. Exactly it elbow getting Iran and meet. It you know we just talked about the slightly up that game winning streak that the reason why they're holding the but right now because other than not they're heated and then. Very old so you look at Columbus Columbus cut that great run or not quite there they're under running away with it. You know what I see IP. You really above everybody else in the east. And after that you you mention the parity it pretty amazing how. Any one of the bottom he lucked out after the top five and not stop by late. I consider consider Columbus Pittsburgh Washington the Rangers. In Montreal. You know after that anybody can make the playoffs. Danny Briere joining us on the line here WG or Sports Radio 550 an MSG Craig bay Andrew Peters. I you know. Is it hard to get respect these days Danny you know leak I'm like I'm watching buffalo and I think that you look at what's gone on here last few years and where they've. Finished in the standings in the draft picks and all that stuff but. I almost think it's impossible for teams unless your like. The elite of the elite to get any kind of respect around the league. Meanwhile you've got to put yourself in that position first before before you get respect from me. You don't count that they would there the last few years now that you're there. They're kind of they've been put down and you know people are on the question. They're their commitment all the cell. Eight you know you gotta put yourself in inept leadership of the day. You know that changed a lot whip with the paper this you know the anchor leader there a lot better this year are more solid in that that would give them a chance to win every single life. You know they've been lacking a little bit offensively. But that's gonna come after missing Jack I call her old part of that first after the season when he was a big bowl too that the the sabres. Danny odd wood debris are joining us on line here investigators Andrew Peters Craig of raid W each year Sports Radio 550 and MSG. I think Danny we have a situation here Dicey situation you'd write a good one it's a it's a good one to have if you if you like that saying but. You have runners Nelson here. And Robin Lehner and I know that the Phillies had a long list of of I don't wanna see goalie problems but I wanna say like they've over the years tried to far to remember when you guys were in the playoffs you ended up having. What was the kid's name that you had a net. There. While abroad he was. It went there but we at Layton and Brian Boucher yeah. So so here we have Lennar and Nelson and I think a lot of people right now are. Looking at the latter Nelson comparison and they're not saying that one is necessarily better than the other but at what point do you. Play the guy that might give your team the best chance to win over the circumstances in which may be you have to find out what he really is. You know it's a great question and unfortunately the you know the sabres are trying to find out who gonna take during the you'd go to Iraq with the volume look at. In the fight scenes in the east that are rarely had a running away with it other than in Pittsburgh who isn't a little bit of a controversy but it also because Murray's been hurt so much if you because he would Peter clearly their number one at a very. But the other guy. You know Washington Columbus Montreal. Even the Rangers even know Lundqvist has struggled a bit this year you know he's clearly even be in the number one for a lot of years there so. I I I kinda think that all the old puppies we have clear number one and and the sabres are kind of waiting for one of those guys who can run with the ball here. How long does it normally take you think I mean with a all the goalies you play with Kerry price. You player Ryan Miller you play with the with Marty beer on you play with with a lot of great goaltenders how far does it normally takes her goal because. Letters 26 Nelson's 25 full second round picks and both have bounced around a little bit I mean Lennar less than Aaron Nelson. But you look at. Do you look at maybe Mason might be a good example you'll look all that. Talbott Bob Ross. He ended up in Columbus I mean how long does it. And there's no I guess formula of how long does it take. Yeah it's a really good question and nobody has the clear answer on that you know it's a little different for everyone but. See that for every goal yet it that lead. You know they're there they don't really take October 20 or 27 for the ball spark and and double home. The bandit hit it in their thirties. So. It helped it to be patient sometimes but it seems to be good that that's crept into Montreal Canadians were very. Patient with Carey Price and look how he's turned out to be. You know because at times it was it was really up for even Montreal fans are out there for a couple of mistakes that he made that REI. What you were patient with him and and I think in my book now he's he's. The best goalie in the NHL so it's not an easy thing to do what yak goalies I I think we'll sort it thirty it is when they get. At their peak level at their very best in her career. I don't know of the army Danny probably get a chance to listen to the show leading up to your segment here but rip got absolutely schooled by a woman named. Diane in Charlotte, North Carolina and he is just he's doing some serious damage control right now he caught and if if you don't know why hasn't set the thing. He is. You know despite the people on Twitter no big deal. It and in my left bleeding right now and it's it's incredible I just took an absolute pounding this morning by you know what it was one of the best calls. Without a doubt I've had in in all the time I've been do and it's. Very knowledgeable well spoken loved it absolutely loved it but now. I'm getting crushed by all of these. That'll happen any data. Did happen here and there we we all face adult involvement resident. Horry have time I met are not going after you. That the product is out and got our problem is I bought a year career yup my body inside me he's not sick enough for me just loves it just loves that unparalleled. It's just nice for your lap thinks so much is like the greatest day ever the last couple days have been great his ribs is absolutely got the school pay Danny you're looking around the league at all like what teams are impressing you I'm looking at Sharaud all. And you know I hate to change gears so drastically but it's a team that. Is number Warren chasing Philly and they're not that far behind with four games in hand for four points back. Buffalo's chasing them as well are you surprised that their improvement I mean obviously the Austin Matthews thing but I didn't have them jags for this this year. No and I mean neither you know I admit that he you know what it's not. I've been always my years in buffalo mean Toronto Maple Leafs were one of the key that I despite the ball still it was always there's the cup cheering for them but. You know ot the Mac users and then you know so much fun to watch you know I extranet secretly cheer for him a little bit and it's been born who to watch them play and watch him like what he bit smarter as well. You know that the future. For the mid forties is that is very bright. It's looking very good at that we if he had said that hasn't cracked yeah. A lot even in the papers I mean that favors her team that early in the year I didn't know you what to expect too much. But I have been pleasantly surprised lately. I I also think they're going in the right direction it's gonna be it he that's going to be coupled play in the in the next few years moving forward. One of the guys that Philly has that rib would love to me BC if receivers could acquire or somebody is a garlic cost despair and opera hasn't complained about the bass this year and I guess the hype is kind of gone away a little bit but as you guys that. You know all. Will stay in Philadelphia as you guys you can see Philly investing the time in in the patients or Z got they might wanna move on from. Well Ali you know it interest Barack I I can't compare. The flyers getting rid of that year there defensemen were further. That your future anyway because it look at the really rightly called Barack the end. I don't look at the camp he got the chance to even playbook is he was their first round pick. Two years ago and he's clearly becoming. You know the face of the defense per for the fire at least when he gets all the pop like every single night he's only nineteen years old silk. Pro overall. And India goal that got the bear that that's right very provide a little bit more often he's more of a power play diet. What that you have a lot of good young players coming up all the lives in the system work. For the flyers back on defense Tyler Myers late for team Canada at the world junior yep Travis flat and hard. Who played last year the world juniors for Canada folk. I I think that the flyers are gonna be very very patient and and let try to let these guys grow out of with. The hope that in 45 years from now they'll have one of the best he personally. The goal is to they have both the goal is from the Canadian world juniors juniors don't think. No one goalie heart Carter heart and also the gold resource we did we not banned from you know one of goalie of the tournament so. Apple but I mean it doesn't mean anything until they're able to prove that that at this level as we see a lot of guys. Performed very well at world juniors before and not be able to it can make the next step in and dominated the NHL level so you don't wanna get too excited. But there's definitely some hope there. Do you have a favorite around the league right now I mean can we seriously say Columbus is a favorite to win the Stanley Cup. Ticker at double comfortable lead that. You know but but but you have to consider them beep beep and stole. So good they've been plain old solid both offensively and eat sensibly. The I think in the Eastern Conference you have to. You have to watch out for them. You know in the west he they still don't like Chicago and old they I think it is gonna make another pushed this year. But Minnesota is also very surprising that the that it went watch out. You know who you know who I just can't seem to figure out around the league Danny is Washington. I can't seem to find out what they are I mean it's like you they get close and then it's no cigar but it to me and ask you know I. I wonder why all these years they just haven't been able to get over the hump. Yeah I had I had he not been burdened with them so much the last few years that I got that a result. Myself. Just think in either a good regular season team. And they just don't have the leadership to take it to the next level in the playoffs the year after year after year the same story for them. So until they really do something about it being in you know at least reached the Stanley Cup final. You know I'm not gonna I'm done believing in them. What about Pittsburgh you think they can repeat. Academy when you. The best player in the league you're in the keynote to the top you know five flyers goalie caught the you know anything's possible. You hours you know strong player and lots and on defense. If Murray is able to to improve his game. You know they're they're deftly enough to keep that they know. You don't about the huge advantage in the same thing with Chicago and went for I include them because. Being a lot of wind didn't know what it takes when when you get to the all these apps like the Peter dangerous. This is a great interview because it's like rapid fire. It's just I wanna throw another wanna keep going who's gonna win the scoring title this year. I eagle I think Crosby's gonna win it. And he. This is why we have you won. The. Pittsburgh he's certainly it. He's he's been told already. Well that that. Thank you applicant that consider I've been very surprised at comic David Blaine. Thought as the season winds down I think cross used. Got a question for Danny Danny Briere on the line joining us if you can't recognize the voice. He's actually lost a good portion of its French accent Marty and the other has been living here for twenty years and hasn't lost any. But that being said eight who was the best defenseman in your eyes in the NHL. Danny I mean it's easy to see the office of guises are guys that sticks out in your mind that. Might be a little underrated because we always praised the goal scorers in the point getters in the offensive guys but what about the reality. You don't from DD DB all around and I think is is drew doubt he. I know. You know Carlton. Get a lot of the nod this year burns is getting. A lot of acclamation with you know scoring too many gold I think he scored the other sixteen. The last night her two nights ago. You know not very impressive but would would doubt he is able to do all around bold bold and NC both ends of the guys. That's really what impresses me doubles with him. Another guy that I really. Him you know I think he's very underrated is there Viktor advocates are. He's not right not happen the best year but I got to watch in the playoffs last year news clearly either under a leader on defense. It's funny how you say he's not having his last year and he's got 37. Points already in 42 games that's it it's insanely impressive. So where does Russ mistress Salina fit on that list of mis fifth in the league in scoring. You know a young kid I mean I don't know how much of awful UC but you know restore. He's I think he's. Don't think he is I mean he's is becoming the real deal more and more in this year's been yet been just a great year for. Yeah yeah I only agree and easy that we climate off the list. What until your TV people could be you know to move into the top European HL that's what you're going to be C you know another department that aren't the problem. Is that accurate Larkin in in Phoenix I think. It it'd probably. You know what are quite different in the NHL but we don't hear about on. The Phoenix Coyotes that are struggling year after year. You don't nobody really ease and who until. You know the sabres are able to make a little. Playoff port. In to get the recognition I think I read the line and we'll all know what that happens out there and will be recognized out. You know the best defenseman in the league but he is that we climbing list. Cheney re air on the line in the book of knowledge in just an all around analysts of the NHL Danny before you came on the show I sent out a tweet saying. Send me your questions for Danny Briere right throw couple of the best questions out there so Jim I'm taking a few questions from the fans. Not at all lyzard that they are 37 miles. Well yeah but that's our job he's on here to answer our questions not on here to necessarily be accurate. At my back and I two as the bodies are right. First question Danny best team you ever played on. You know that the at the western quite a bit at the thought between you know the sabres wouldn't eat out. We lost to Carolina in. Conference finals and the sabres today and the flyers 2000 and when we lost pew where Chicago in in the Stanley Cup finals. To this day and those convinced that we had the best be left all all Ortiz left. With the sabres against the Carolina. You know if it wasn't for all those injuries but they're part of the game. We got beat work fair and square but. I still believe we have the best be left. Yeah I'd say 05 or six although I will say this when I was in Jersey and in all 910 the guys went to the finals you know you guys beat us in the first round in five games and that was a very complete yet and all around team you guys had such a just top to bottom you were so deep fast off. He has forgetting at all that your. Another question. Good question here what do Jews think of buffalo when you found no you were coming here and did it change. My first reaction was I'm leaving their arms in the golf courses in. In Phoenix tactical play in the know. But. You know elected as I got the ball well and I and I remember. That flight from Phoenix to be too ball boy and I haven't had the chance to beat the lit yet and dark humor here and it was extremely positive. That doctors before I got on the plane that when I was on the plot that the flight flight over I told myself but but I got a comedian. With a positive attitude in it that you're gonna happen and that's exactly what turned out to be it was the best thing that happens mare in my career. Being traded the ball well and having the chance to let it play and to grow up with they it's fabulous the back. Great key make that like we got to stock developed it it was two years where we needed to the conference final. Those were a lot of fun. So you called the GM right away union way to monthly ripped it. And have come in with like a brutal attitude and like just not want to come here to support players in them before you arrived at good that's that's that's good for you Danny. Karl tweets and do you ever consider coaching. You know what I see. So I quote it is no way he UPD a different race OG you know kids. The fifteen year old and I also have a good group of seventeen and eighteen year old. That might get my own sons play on and I enjoy very much. I I love that part of the not big on you know get the right side and then deciding who like our place so that. Part that I don't enjoy it quite as much so. For a summary of that right now I don't see myself as a head go. What I would lol down the raw meat eat out the chance to teach. Maybe be apart like guy or he's gonna probably yellow coach something like that where I keep teach two guys. God that's where my action. Dan Avery are joining us satellite couple more questions for you Danny here from the fans and we appreciate your time somebody I know you're busy. Who's the best player you ever played against. I think I'd have to say when Peter Forsberg would that the gain athletic team in the leak. And human Joe Sakic will will probably. The top two guys and they were obviously he we didn't see literally out of play the the avalanche quite a bit. Was played in the playoffs well so and here was. The two guys I think we're will the public view that the fate. All the when I was with they the neighbors we have the play in the first round. As the sole supplier of Forsberg was there and you still. You know at the top of the game in the it was a tough match up it's wonderful down. That was when full boastful plus the app last question for you Danny. And it's a great question. Who's the best player you've seen. That didn't make the NHL. That you think back that prospect in the plate and you know back in 1996. And how many guys you forces that you have the way I remember that. How many guys like just. Didn't make it out of that game alone but yeah all the guys you've seen in junior heard about draft picks guys you are probably from mark mark why mean. Like dessert guy that sticks out. There. The one thing that you come up here and people that when I talk to people ask me about my track who might throughout the 1990. Stick NHL draft I believe it was probably that week to score. Ever. Draft what ever in the history of the NHL but there's one guy you. Could you would number one in the ranking pretty much the whole time. You know it was his name was. And Don bulk of my belief. All Alexander Paul Scott yeah Alex vault that he ended up being drafted for the overall. But I don't think you ever played a game in the NHL analysts silk and raised and bite him when I come up that prospecting EB big he was that he was strong. So I don't know what happened in the bat that we got one name that comes. That's what I mean and you know what Danny. He he did play three games what that is not nearly enough for what he was I mean you look at the guys that were drafted number one overall Phillips. Zoos in due modules will be at the rose and I'm not trying to answer but you have faults cough who went forth. And I remember that guy GA lady due mom went third overall yeah and I remember volt golf played for the Berry colts and he was he was supposed to be. The biggest superstar. And I error with absolute full old boss talk. Yeah. And the eagle the first we pick it up Miami Tripp Phillips that are fabulous career in auto law. You know the first that we pick ended up playing and then Andy had a decent career. But after that if you were on the list it's it. Pretty the end in the first round I think the best player in that draft. And they'll be in the that you Sharaa who drafted I believe in the third row. So where so yeah I would pretty amazing at 96 that draft last week that was pretty weak. There Stan pretty weak there's Danny Briere number 24 overall Phoenix Coyotes are 973. Games. 370 goals 389. Assists 696. Point one question Briere was first rounder who currently are really big goal this I mean it's ridiculous it is and it Ali was all over those junior magazine that years or eight did you ever do you ever look back at your careers I wish they is seventh in the fourth and physicists and and Quebec major junior is I like how you get a 163. Points. 67 goals and 67 games like you are like really. You included. After every bill you'd Hilliard number of you 48 junior. I was fourteen. The little easier this whispering. Yeah ever wish you played a thousand games or got that 700 point. Are you not care what that's stuff I ask where this all the time if you elect of god that thousand game is only sixty games away or fifty games away or something that. Yeah I mean it would it would have been cool to be able to say B but you know what I'm on the flip side with all the playoff team. You know we got over that that. Now we've seen threshold. I eagle it would have been good to have that number are pretty cool to see that number beside your name. But you know overall. You know I I can't complain I was very fortunate to have. At the camp the place for a long. 124. Playoff games 116. Playoff points it was a point where you were at a point gain Danny outstanding career. And thanks for your time again manner love having you on here it's been a few times we really enjoyed and all the fans do as well. Yet it'll sort Citigroup. What's it thank you you know what it's just a pleasure listening to them talk it really is guy with such a great player in the league for so long. And then to listen to him give his opinions on all these things it's it's it's fun to listen to loved it thanks recruitment. Daniels Sarah buddy or your thanks man we'll talk to soon.
