You're just tuning in and repeat his trigger for a party bureau not here today it's your show WG or sports tree of 515 amnesty. Talking about the Marty beer and roast. That's why recalled videotape from the tub is that he he needed to have little private conversation with me. About the roasted some material. That we are going to be. Listing and adding and subtracting to and from so. If you haven't gotten your tickets yet go to WGR 550 dark com checked them out go pick some up and head of the roast as it's going to be great time. See small very popular. Former athletes who game Greer JP Dumont she's morally. And probably many more. Where were you. Honestly where were you Lou when we came back here what's that it's all in the back I went to Washington are and what would happen what would happen if you went to the wash merely to go to warm up for you relate for the opening shift of the game mean exactly define or something here. It would be a fine but if I went to warm up and my skate Earl your state didn't break though you went about this the desperation thing this broke and which way the I've. Be my A JJ. Or do you know JJ in the air guy. Whispers sweet nothings broken about them so it took longer. Savers and predators 8 o'clock park job tonight here in WGR for three to 515 MSG. Pregame shows at 730. Make sure to check that out. You see you see it whispering sweet nothings in new here. I don't see the sabres wanted to whisper sweet nothings in the years of the Nashville Predators there's my little say Wayne's been over to tonight's game. But I don't think there's. Any way for us or fans or anyone to try to. Indicates that the players how important this game is in the standings. Is that an overstatement I've kind of feel like I'm overstating the importance of each and every game at the same time I'm sitting here where we're sitting here trying to. You know trying to make a playoff playoff push yeah. And they're in the same position that's why I mean everything seems to be so tight it's so tight in the east. If you're in last place in the east you're you're what 67 points out of a playoff spot. Teams in the last place teams in the Eastern Conference actually feel like they have a chance to make the playoffs and they should because all it takes is. A couple of games. A nice five game run sixth game running year you have a playoff spot. So when you look at the west the west is the same thing Nashville. They are sitting in. They're sitting in at at division's spot right now but they are there one point from being one or two points from being out of the play out of the playoffs. Every game right now and we're only we're talking the mid forties. In games played and teams are still feeling the pressure. Of solidifying spots so that's why this game tonight means so much to both teams because they wanna go into the break. Just gaining those one or two points that they need to push them in the right. Correction I know how much you love stats. And there's a stat out there the sabres have a 13% chance of making the playoffs. It goes up to seventeen point 1% with the non shoot out. Win tonight and it's a lot of Zora let me just throw it out there again. Sabres haven't as of today the sabres have a 13% chance of making the playoffs goes up to seventeen point 1%. That's four point 1% greater than it is. Now. Within on shoot go win. When the sabres after duty tonight you know when and who needs to step up I mean let's be honest here. Who has gone on a bit of a terror nobody other than samurai and are had a bit of a nice run but. Again Riley's been honest player on the team for the past and you're you're criticized not criticizing but saying it's a problem and you obviously the goal or two in his last fifteen games. I understandably points he has but he has eleven points in ten games. The other night against Detroit was his first goal and like thirteen games to. So are now concern. Concerned no. Along is that a concern if that continues yes. Absolutely we need we need him to produce. We need Jack cycle to Perdue Sam Reinhart a postal Evander Kane are big guys need to produce. That's what it's all about your top players have to be your top players your goaltending has to be sharp you look at it Montreal. We had spectacular goaltending. From what Robin Lehner. Any came out he he won us that game. That's the way I feel when you get the goaltending when you get your top players playing well. You give yourself a chance to win each and every night and I believe that this team right now can beat anybody and the national hockey week. Is Sam Bryant hurt right now maybe one of the best thanks for the bark in the league. For what he does value wise to the team statistically but also Sao relies again later comic Davidson's stuff like that but. But you don't that these this guy I don't know was really expected to be. On Saturday devices the F 29 and 46 games series has once sold on one more game and Kyle postal. One last point your paying a post of six million boxing arcane making 59 he's right around the same number maybe even. Reiner might have a little bit of a better are you talking best bang for the buck for our team. Yeah probably for Tina. Sure a lot of you know give I would say every team we're in the league maybe instantly it's stretched. But on this team for sure. That's not right don't I shouldn't be that way. Beyond through the I'd like to see him a lot higher. Rudy absolutely. So he's underachieving for you right now yes. Prepare. How much I know that I think he's at a solid season. I think it's been solid. I think not having Jack in the line up you know everybody suffered what you should've seen the statistics before Jack. Is abysmal. No one was having success Jack. Adds an element to this team that he makes players around him better not only does he make the players around him better that he draw eyes. The elite defenders of every single team which then there's the trickle down effect Ryan Riley's line plays against. The second line in a banner Cain who right now is on the third line. Playing with palm incurred incident in Gionta. Is playing against lesser lines. And he's he's getting. Playing while too so there's there's the trickle down effect with Jack being in the line up. And Evander Kane. A zebra and I liked his game. I liked his game when he wasn't even producing. He won twelve games without a goal but here's the thing when you watched Evander Kane played the game. He does so much more than just goals scored. He keeps the other team honest he's physical he's got nastiness. He's got speed. He adds so much more to the game. And when he starts to score. Now he looks like an elite player. And he's been scoring he's been one of the hottest players in the National Hockey League and the last little while. Sabres at national tonight 8 o'clock part drop wire we talked to all these players and how they've been and what they need to do simply be simply because. The fact of the matter is. They need to win these games and they need their top players to be their best players they aren't as deep as some of these top tier teams and leagues have they do want to squeak in. And the then they you know they do have to win these games in these players have to be the best players quickly. Josh Georgia still dealing with a abdominal injury still another sixty days off the race. Bottom workouts before. And cook off cooler coffee where's the ease starting escape the team now he's starting to stay with the team now. Take McCabe rehabbing and strengthening his shoulder. See the pro are resolved in vials on these players right now damn while talking about Tajik McCabe. Re having straightening his shoulder we'll see where it where he is with progress could be ten to fourteen days he's doing while so what's that separation grade two separation probably. The skirt skating in a week cool because there's been a very good chance we sequel cover some point on this road trips soul. Okay. So not the all star break some probably tomorrow and Alison we don't see him tonight which would be nice nice return. I see what he is. Don't share. Is there's gotta be some of you rid of the wants to bring him back next year peaking come back to be the player that that you traded for. You traded for him for a reason because he brings and element that he. Some players just don't have mark passing didn't habit and that's what put a quote operates now former first tropic. Very physical player missing time an injury but this is the guy wants he played a lot of because he's a guy that I think why couldn't he be in your second pairing going forward. I know he makes what four million marks unrestricted and restricted where's he going from there. Who knows if he's hurt who knows someone's gonna take a waiver on who knows how do you know it doesn't come and sign a one year deal here. Using someone throws a big contract a cool look off he is still kind of an unknown. He still kind of an unproven. As to what he is. In this league. There what would you do with them I right now or. I Greece I would bring him back but yet to make a decision easy and you FA he's gonna want a multiyear deal and I'm not prepared to get a multi year deal. Turn out so if he's healthy. Go to your point yesterday you know. Why do you think he's gonna come back here. I don't you all think that he's enjoyed. His time here I'm awful lot to date couldn't he's been injured a lot could tell him. You know have to be Iraq's nice to know that this guy's not happy he played twenty games for the season has one assist in minus ten do you think he's happy. This is is the biggest year of his career. And it is not gone the way he's won it it started off so integral buffaloes to blame for that no I'm not saying they're to blame. I'm saying that you know the way hockey players are. He's not happy he is the biggest year of his life. He's an unrestricted free agent. At 27 years of age. He's having the worst career year. What I will say is. I can probably say that this guy is going to be looking to have a real strong ending to the season. Get healthy and when you come back. Get ready to play this guy could be a key point or key asset. For the stretch. There's no doubt. But he's also an undershirt to free agent and what happens. In fifteen game from now. If you get to the deadline. Are you gonna keep on re gonna trade. Talking about. Dmitry cooler coffin where does he stand his UFC at the end of the year. Tim Murray treated for him. Be traded would you trade mark pass sick and maybe a pick. Or he got to pick but either way it was player for player. And you know he hasn't had the best he's as river just mentioned one point twenty games minus ten. Here's the thing we have talked about him before even even when. Every site it was a trip form and I'm still excited. I just hope that this player still a young guys 26 years old I hope that he can put the first. Part of his a time here buffalo away. And start it fresh Dan miles were commenting there's a very good chance we could sequel cough at some point on this trip. On Josh Georges he said he still dealing with a abdominal injury still another six to seven days of off vice work out before he hits the nice. And he also commented on cheaper cable where he's at. It's re having strengthening your shoulder. And we'll see wearers. See where he progresses could be ten to fourteen days he's doing well so. You know. Last game I wanna ask you some receivers just five right handed defenseman last game. There's an obsession here about right left right left I coach now and I don't care about right left eye care what I advancement I don't. I care what defenseman that can make plays under forehand and the backhand yet obviously well there obviously there's a strong side obvious to every defenseman as a strong site every forward there's a strong side we should be able. As a defenseman to play both Josh Georgia's said he started on his wrong site that was how we had to get in the league and you had to do the same union. No. I've played on the left before. To everybody difference it's absolutely huge difference now granted I will say that there's some defensemen. Love the plan their offside more than there than their strong side. That's some defensemen as a let's say as a coach for me I would want my guys to be on their strong sides. It's the way you move the puck the pockets move quicker the way you pick up the pox on the boards in the defense's own there's all these different things that Saddam. You know you have to be used to but like I said some players like the plan their offside better than than the strong side. So I can make all the arguments against it but I hide I just don't think we have the time right now I quite ignored it doesn't really matter we have five defenseman playing right. Forgive and right now its plan on his off side you have Bogosian. Who looks extremely. Comfortable on his offside. Lot of lot of good stuff. Our source of stats are meaningful meaningless assist continuance that tree because I know that you are big stack and you know what on game days sometimes we do meaningful or meaning less. And play in the national predators assume we're you've been criticized for them cancer we don't put the team anymore. From what hear no player scored more goals and Philip Forsberg since December 19 is eleven goals Craig. Five goals and an NHL leading four game winners in his past six. Gains. I got to watch Joseph for what would you tell your team of this guy well he is. He did score one for the thirty goals last year had 33 goals is known as a surprise there is no surprise but let me tell you this. Did you see it start of the season. Number you know like one or two goals in the first 25 games of the season he started extremely slow. He's caught fire as of late. Obviously eleven goals it's right Tom he's catch and at the right time and they desperately needed him to catch fire against. He's he's one of their big guys he's the guy that you have to watch on the ice he's a big strong. Powerful. Players that can really put the puck in the net he's confident right now things are going well forum soul. Certainly a guy that they're gonna have to watch for tonight number armor Pasternak we started out of the start of the season of the goal game we Earl argument I would pretty yet fifty this year and we talked to bode Ambien is the is gonna win the rocket. Well isn't scored in. Seventeen games. So it's it really is it's not how you start it's how you finish tonight in my opinion. So other meaningful so meaningful to me was that what he Wheatley talent there. I'm fired upon the coaches you from coach files I'm telling these guys scored every time is as the park. As you know was gonna touch the park yeah absolutely arms and that has to be every park closest player to a to fill Forsberg when he has the part you have to lay a body. Well that's where harassed mistress the lining comes in. Wrist those got to be a guy against that line Johansson and and in the Forsberg line he is gonna be playing a lot of minutes tonight because they're gonna trying get that match up that. Am I have re still vote against. Forsberg and on some talk about scoring first being very important national. They're the only team in the NHL that is not lost the game here's that isn't as interesting stat. They've not lost a game in regulation when scoring burst savers. Historically this season no further. Sloppy starts. It and back at doctor Berman fade. They don't come out hard against this team early. But let's every game they've done very well lottery game that's every game for the sabres it doesn't matter they have to they have to start every game. And have to be that the dictator of the guys that do initiate all the I don't it's a there's a talent he doesn't want musicality. A motion. Don't pace. Just play. Play with skill player with speed beat creator of do what you need to do but they need to start it rate from the drop of the puck because obviously the statistics show that if national scores first. They become of being airy competent team they have not lost this year when they score first but you know what. Stats. They're meant to be broken. I just want these guys to come out. Guns ablaze in right off the hop. And you know what they've played very well as of late. And in the last number of games where they've they've had really really strong start so hopefully they can get that done tonight. Fill in the blank with Gregory eBay and Andrew Peters Rebecca McNamee as the gators is a lot of questions here good ones to talk about the Norris trophy whose are favored to win the cop. The Calder trophy think there's some obvious names out there but there are other ones that many people underestimate. Bruce read the power of the Schwartz when we return investigators to reach your Sports Radio 550 amnesty. We're back with. The instigate us presented by MP Carol hard. Welcome back to the as skaters Andrew Peters Gregory van paid WGR Sports Radio 515 MS GA. Like you're the field as this hits this accident name I was looking or. As river. People can't see my job behind the scenes but as ray of absolutely butchers the names of players around the league vacuum. Frequently butchery in. Segments segment and run it's that JJ. Prepares you for a long in advance so. You know we all we're all human yes so now it's now time for blank or the field. And I guess. You know will will tie and a half of the this works so for the Norris trophy is it easy to say that it's. Brent Burns or the field as the winner of the enormous amount of the field does it feel like everybody else right now says Brent Burns is the shoe in for the Norris trophy. Is everybody's thing. While I think yes and I'll tell you why because the end of the day everyone looks bad statistic says the key in the department of the Norris trophy now it's been. Tom Selleck to the last few years it's all stacks. Like last year. Drew Doughty. In most it is of the most numbers it's not boats it's been along time coming for him. That's they actually Carlson has been so dynamic offensively like he's like forward. That he's putting up you know 7880 point two years that he's he's won multiple times and career of who deserves it. Who really deserves it. Is it Brent Burns is it Eric Carlson I mean is it one of these guys. For these guys music at least literally a sideshow. This shall. The topic of Brent Burns today. Rosie put in his backpack that he brings into his team he looks like he's going into the wilderness for a month. If you're sleeping bag in there he's got some trail mix of some pots and pans out of bonds and burner is gut. Aghast paying. You never know when you're gonna need that stuff what is the army how much laundry can you possibly think that there. What what you guys bring to the rink and those backpacks he must have an arbor Sheen. He must have the game ready machines. I don't care what any hats but I'll tell you this whatever he has and that maggots work inform. Twenty goals as adept at Richmond fifty points. Recent iron talk about Sidney Crosby and and economy David they're the best around their absolutely feel like eating up the league. Our boy youth any Malkin. Well he's four points behind. The best forwards in the game four point six points behind karma if it. Guys twenty goals. Is he a bass player in the National Hockey League. No. No he's not. Plus seventeen. Point five minutes tonight fifty points in 48 games when he goals. He. Okay. How is he is a defense. I don't I'm not a plus seventeen I mean always on all over me like I'm asking the question like I'm doubting what you're saying maybe arm. Feeding some more. You know trying to suck some more of that knowledge Audi rip as you know it's not always you know instigating antagonizing sometimes there's. There's a method to the madness over your body. He's posing as a defenseman serious question how is Brent Burns as a defenseman I don't know is he. Is he is you guys you have on the ice I'm only asking. He got the app on the ice the last minute of the game if you're down a goal. Yes. I beat out a goal yes operable. Because he's probably playing with Edward the last Ari who offer will noted goat it's probably the best defensemen defensive defenseman in league. Operable. The defender Nat absolutely correct result with a six foot 5235. Pound beast that can skate he can cover ground. He can force he strong. You know. Like I said twenty goals. You know that twenty goals. He's gonna have to she laughed. This is insane his statistics. That's just in insanity rate now what's going on with him he's in the same breath as terrorists Sankoh he's in the same breath as a patch are ready Malkin. All bashed in on a 122 goals. He's with in amongst the best goal scorer in the league and he's defenseman Kurt. He literally. Could shut down his game. For the next 35 games this season and still win in ours. That's how good season so far. There's no one even close. But when you bring waves. Please someone out there Tommy that your doubt he's the best defensemen leak. Now he's not sorry. What about Ryan's suitor. Ryan Souter very good defenseman love him but you know what print Ernst is doing something special. He does something special that. There's there's. But you're doing something special does that mean you're the best last year at 78 points in 82 games and defenseman twenty plus schools. Just because you're doing something special does that make you the best that's my question. Like Pasternak scoring all those goals he continued that that's doing something special. You know what Brent Burns is doing right now that's dude that's something special for today's dating game. But Ryan Souter has done this consistently. For ten years he's the most efficient defenseman in the National Hockey League he'll have. Sixty. In a lap 55 points this year he'll finish supply us. Mean I he's already a plus 28. He only has a hip. Hop power play points and the so anything is and why is he never even in the Norris trophy if he plays in Minnesota and their always on the bubble. San Jose goes the final last year they. You know like they've been one of the best teams no question Brent Burns is huge part of that but what Ryan Suter has done. Is soul overlooked so overlooked he is a plus here's another guy. We talked about it yesterday and you know I love these kinds of stories is Justin Schultz just doing something special or is he becoming the defenseman we all thought he would. He can't Rula what he's doing 33 points in 46 games in the paint on the penguins. Plus 27. It's amazing that Edmonton Oilers wanted to give this everybody want everybody around alone says this guy it was a joke. It was a boss in Pittsburgh traded forum he made their defense worse with this country Pittsburgh traded for yeah I was lasted the deadline what they treat form wasn't away prepare and I don't think he was a waiver panic I believe it was tree and it might have been draft I I I don't know for sure. But I know that he was picked up. For depth defenseman I heard there. It doesn't talks and a signed stick from Sidney Crosby that one across the other side. That's how little that's how what that's what they thought of this player in Edmonton he could not in play on the war one of the worst defensive teams in the league. He could not play in the team. Their daughters are special now we're sitting here looking at him. And he's got 33 points plus 27. And he is ninety minutes defenseman scoring fourth fourth in defenseman scoring. It all just when you think that your having a hard time and one team. You might light it up on another because you get a different opportunity to play with different players different environment. You know it's a great story here so I think I you know I I think I think for some it's a topic for burns. But I just need to make the argument that is if it's absolutely the easiest whenever I am going to sit year and I am gonna look you in the eyes of pat you on the back and say 150%. That Ryan's Souter is the most underrated. Under valued. Under appreciated. Player in the national should get the argument he makes nine point fire him. They're all no argument there you can make the money but if you there's also recognition that comes along that he does not get a proper recognition defensemen that plays more than any player in the league for the past five to eight years he plays upwards of thirty we we sit here and talk about Bristol line in all my guy he played thirty minutes a game axle. He does that every single night for the past eight years. In in Minnesota and on top of that he put up fifty points year. All right next blank of the field that's segment named black to the field you're wondering. We just talking about the Norris trophy writ says burns I say you know enough but the point stop looking appoints let's look at the all around defenseman. It's Ryan Suter from me it has been for the last few years. Like the field to win the cup was your favorite to win the cup. Preferred wizards host of good group Pittsburgh aren't very artery Peter. I'm gonna do it. Because I think that they actually are the team to be rate now I really do I think Sidney Crosby's having I agree year I think Yevgeny Malkin. Looks like he's the young young buck but they've got guys Phil Kessel is having that. Beautiful quiet season when he's up there and and in points. On the they've. Horn quest. Is dead silent assassin. You yet. Brian rust a harsh Jiri they have so many weapons on this team that are playing well for them. That this is an extremely hearty plate they have two goaltenders two number ones that they can go with that any time. Com and they've got some defense. That are so underrated it is ridiculous. And they don't even have their big boy in the lineup right now whose injured in Chris what I think and they haven't missed missed the beat they are going to be. And extremely. Extremely tough team to play. In the long. In our. I can't argue with it I was hoping you're gonna see some meals and I don't wanna see Washington. All right let's I don't want to say Columbus I don't think it's it. See it. Because I can tell you want me to say why is Bruce it's Pittsburgh against Columbus. In an in the Eastern Conference finals. Buying it diary now if there's one team out there that could give Pittsburgh are really tough time it's either going to be Washington. Or it's going to be Columbus Columbus. Is built. For. A long stretch in the playoffs they have rioters markers. Work horses. And they're going to be very very tough to play against and you know what. You never know what that these teams are gonna do with the deadline some of these teams are gonna trying get better because I believe Washington Columbus and Pittsburgh. Our teams right now that feel that this is their time and they have to go after it and they're gonna try to make the team better at the deadline. Point here we deal with on Twitter on a daily basis certainly. Here's that we deal with Twitter if you want Wendell though the life of luxury of Andrew Craig. JJ tweets and not RG aging. Why don't you just Mary Ryan sooner already it's obvious you have a thing for him. OK JJ. Odd next topic. Is assuming everything for an suitor. Now I think it too I think it's so warranted it it's he isn't on raising that player. Amazing where. Talked about enough I can't argue with the with. Blanketed the call plank of the field when it comes to Pittsburgh I think Pittsburgh is going to win again I just I think Crosby's. This is a real. He's just unreal I think he's better now than it was five years ago. Let out a relatively and Malkin they're both. You know thirty years of age the castle the castle p.s castles castle where he fits on the team on what his role is on the team. Is what makes the team so dynamic he couldn't beat the guy and Ronald was and is. Was it his his role on the team was not that you know he didn't want PD. He would want to be limelight don't don't you want that don't you want Jack to be that guy kind of Ryan O'Reilly and Sam Ryan RP year. You're one they're two guys kind to have Jack has your mall in a career castle guys can fly non under the radar because he's so dynamic but not have to be your best. Player not to be your best where he talked with a city lead your team in scoring sure but bass player doesn't have to be the case Cain isn't the best players Chicago. He's the most important player first in terms of statistics and and driving your offense in your power play but without a doubt Toews or host or are two guys that. You you have to have in your roster any given night each job Chicago short years ago they they could get by with a cocaine. But anyway so next topic for Blanco the field from Calder is it to is that it tap in for Austin Matthews he's. Is either who is it like in the field so roster Matthews feel. No no. No I think ought to Matthews. Had a real strong season. I like Patrick lining I think Patrick lining has been. Super dynamic this year he's put up the points. And have you noticed the difference. In the Winnipeg jets. In the games that he's been out. Yes. How have they done not very well not good at. All. Because he is a mass of peace to that team. He's very dynamic. On the way this guy shoots the puck and makes plays and I say shoot the puck. And make plays yes he's making plays out there that are he's setting up players on his team making them better. I love the way this kid plays the game armed and you know what the other thing that I really walks. Obviously coming from. You know defenseman I watched how guys like this with you lead talent. I watch how guys like this come back and play defense and up higher rate now he comes back hard. He comes back hard and he forked backtracked hard. I I appreciate that sewing and David Patrick line I think once he gets back I think he's gonna take off again I think it's going to be handed Austin Matthews because I sort that's the most obvious topic I think him and now. Whatever but. For me and I think a lot of people Agassi here Celek an expert on this player but sacked for a ski and what he's done an added to the Columbus Blue Jackets he was in the eighth pick overall out of Michigan so what you're enemy rate now is you're not leaving in a put. Toronto's boy Mitch martyr who's leading all rookies right now points you're nodding in Puerto mean your top three so are you saying that has to be based on stats again because of your basic you know as the you how hard it is the play. You have to consider this them what he's doing the success of the team. Yes martyr and Matthews absolutely. Lining of course. This guys alone on that team as a rookie and he's helping that defense already be a better defense and you just wanted to talk to book Columbus in the end. As the favorite to win the cup. In this kids on the team if I were to tell you draw our favorite to win the cup what would you say to win the cup. The answer would be no. But I say I say Columbus. And you do is a big part we just excuse Zach or rescue nobody looks the value now of what the player is to the team and how the team is doing certainly not overlooking. Him but. I think Mitch martyr from day one. All the way to gave me wanna guy sorry you just you talked him through loss and the break. When we come back. Skills from the trips Nashville's a place that we the to go to in the and we're gonna reminiscent of at least I am so it's easier to he's. Never heard of it.
