Shuster was. I think just and those unlucky bounce it cannot. Kills your money and momentum enough that TK go cancers cycle that. Sabres also the devils last night at 21 store. If you read to one senior squares pool for sabres devils congratulations. You either have 01. Or one loss. In your square little. Hey Claude Julien what this guy he got fired someone's gonna snap him up someone someone should. At this guy up I'd love Claude Julien. He would be fantastic. Hit look at look and if you look at his resume is is bile like we know what he's done in Boston. You back and look at Charlotte clutched means numbers okay basically did the guy has never had a season. Under ninety points. Is throw out the first year he got hired in Montreal he had 36 games coach okay throw that out all 506. He is fired in Montreal he leads with 44 points in 41 games. Lock out year okay 48 games yelling yeah what are you gonna do and then this year he's in his diesel is dense here in Boston fifty points or two target. Full season three is coach the team Bruins Canadians. And is this one year New Jersey they fired after the at a 102 points. The guy has had 5100 point seasons and 590 plus point seasons out of thirteen full seasons as I said. The other three years. Lock out. Half season in Montreal. Past season in Montreal when he first got the job. Some of us that this guy up. Someone Saint Louis has their coach from. Trying to think who else. If like Colorado or anybody anybody gonna fire the coach now because Claude Julien on the market. That's not act. I don't know what the heck happened in Boston. But I've I've always gonna offend a clutch their one point out of a playoff spot and there's ever reasonable leave that they lend it to the playoffs for a name really. 11 out of a playoff spot they're tied with the least some pointers have month Toronto is forty. Excuse me for teams and and Boston's a minus six on goal differential. Yeah. I think they'll make the playoffs yeah I always thought it's funny I thought watching dull as watching the Bruins from our perspective. The last few years I thought the Bruins were gonna dive a little more I really thought they're gonna start going down. And yet they missed last year yet but they had 93 Menendez that 93 points in 96 the year before. Honestly I thought his teams did better than I thought they were going to do. I thought the talent we start to drop they get rid of all to get rid of some guides and she each but the got rid of some guys. Off that roster and I thought his team's tended to do better than I thought they were going to do. And that's why a few weeks ago the talks started and in Boston that he was on the hot seat and he might get fired and I thought. Where's this coming from there at the time they're in second place in the division. And I still thought they were better off than I thought they're going to be this season so to me he's got a gets a lot out of this teams may be more. Then you should be able to get at some of those teams. Darren Gregor we can all see this on on Julia getting fired we can all see this coming but still seems odd given joints history. They're great enemies he's very successful a few owners might be asking their GMs about this move today. I'm waiting to see out of work very long right now it seems that lets look at the Eastern Conference that the islanders just fired Jack apple want Doug Weight been running things to the islanders call. I would mean it's a team that's two points behind Boston with games in hand Florida hot RD fire their coach this year. New Jersey Carolina Detroit. Tampa buffalo finally Tampa's two and anything there Colorado about Detroit. Detroit had a cup is in year to ready his lesson he's the guy that we don't Babcock leaves he's elevated from the AHL the all good we know that it's funny I thought about the islanders my first thought was. Discharge of errors like Claude Julien but feel like the islanders are gonna start make are making decisions based and try to keep those are sapping they should. They should other teams he'd have to be eighteen it's not in the playoffs right now would Dallas call. Lindy Ruff has been very much yeah he's on the hot seat yeah so fire Lindy higher Julian I mean I've already got a few text asking if you could happen here. Of course Vancouver right earlier this season they were talking about you know hot seat and Vancouver now they played a little better but. The still at 552. Points and on the outlook and in in the west mountain. So that's another team everything got a I mean you look at Arizona you wonder what's going on there but it's too bad I feel like Dave Tippett would have to resign like I don't deliver fired Dave Tippett and Arizona. So Julianne fired he was informed of it this morning from the did they have a loss that stands out. Missouri inning and then play last night and on Sunday. They didn't play. And on Saturday today m.'s goal meg trying to from the Bruins what they did here they lost at least six to five. It 41 shots on goal now lost six to five to Toronto. And it passed by Toronto and Julian got fired two days later in what I was thinking enemy to and just trying to double check it I think you have this was one thought I had. Bye week. I think during their bye Rick right now they just played Toronto. And they don't play again until Thursday February 9 that maybe they were in their bye we can thought we got five days in here let's do this now now. Greg I can almost like a football team firing a guy knowing you're on your bye week and he's got some time to get ready because it. If it had been match I came tight when the rumors first started they were going on for weeks. That he was going to get fired in Boston and they went through a little bit of a skid to when he was already on the hot seat you know they've mid gender they lost four straight. And it's it's odd that they went through enrollment goes to Washington throughout on the pull the trigger almost think they want him out but let's just wait we get to the bye week we got five days off. Let's do this now. Pure LeBron reporting on Julius contract he has this year and next left on his deal. Paying him two and a half this year and three million next year. And if it seemed wants to hire him they won't have to give the Bruins compensation right they ended that. Chromium to get a second round picks again. The end of that once you fire a coach released it read that the tried and that we'll take your word for I don't remember what happened I I think they did and it isn't right. I Saber city of event for vials and even though he was fired nominally. I think the funny thing I've crimes I swear I would love does. As Darren Gregor said are there owners around the league they're talking they're GM's today about that maybe they haven't been happy with their head coach and an outgoing this guys on the market. Let laurel the trigger now look around GM's talking to their owners. Okay revert under center facility owner committed GM CI. Payless and we got a chance we get this we can upgrade yeah and I know you might like whoever this guy is. But let's look at it like we would any other position on the team whether it's a forward or defenseman or goalie. We've got an opportunity to upgrade here and let's make the call. You wonder how quickly it'll happen Bruce Boudreau is a guy that he gets dumped any is bang out 'cause he wins snapped up right away. Wynn threw liquid is stored in Minnesota of course he's a good coach also happens in the playoffs that's the bugaboo on Bruce Boudreau but where every ghost they win and they went right away in the regular season and they make the playoffs. Julie and I yup he said what 51 place finishes. And a second place finish in a whole bunch of what 123453. Place is this these days is teams are always. Very good I think he'll be snapped up pretty soon. My can hamburger on WG jogger right ahead. Now the as a one term you've got to and by the way you guys who wore a blue and Omar and well. Thank you very much we appreciate that the yeah we get us through work to somehow. Would you ask about your. What would I'm sorry what joy and ask about a catch off the. Laws about art beyond what do you think about what you article and all O'Reilly out and wind is right now or olive. Or I mean I have of art yet. Break him out of the shell I know that all signers got slammed here's about what you guys sank. And I thought wanted to. The radio beam I mean you put Jack on a wing and others talked about this on the NC gators from time to time to just kinda. Hey take responsibility away from him defensively. Go ahead and let him be a little bit more free yeah. But my question would be about possession what are our arose possession numbers of the good like I would think you might have this is not gonna have I just know we want both of them on the same line as it is just not gonna happen yet. He's your top two senators he drafted Jack to be a senator you've already moved Reinhart awful senator to the wing. I don't think he's going back to senator and maybe maybe. I just don't think it's gonna it's it's realistic. I like them split up I think both guys are good at at possession and ankle very good at hanging onto the puck a rally. Very good at getting the puck back when it's when the sabres don't have possession of and I think I would rather have. Those two components working on two separate lines is supposed to teaming them up together. Meanwhile. Quick tweet from Tom about Claude Julian Vegas. Oh George George meeting but if your club Julianne you don't want the Vegas job. You want a job where you can probably win yeah Vegas is not in a position to win any time soon as much is the league want that to pat itself on the back for. Giving them an expansion draft with rules that will give them good players I do not agree with that. They gave them the third best odds to win the lottery instead of just giving them all I don't know the first peck move that paid 500 million dollars to be in the league you couldn't get in the first picking in the third lottery spot right. I think the biggest job is a decent job but you're gonna coach of watching cast offs in Las Vegas. I don't think that's the best job yet maybe in time in George McPhee has proven to be a guy that is put together winners Qaeda at least one. With high draft picks but anyway could unite I don't think the biggest job I've made that call. Majority calls today. You'd love to get your new your Vegas franchise. Instant credibility well cup winner this guy is a lot of wins under his and under his belt and Wear Las Vegas would Jordan of being Claude Julien K free agents come here we were gonna win. To grit it would be a big pull for Vegas I just. I don't know if it's the best job forum. He's got. What he may do. Art what he might do is just let this one play out I don't think the beer shortage of suitors for Claude Julien I wonder if if does he you know is he incident in if the islanders called today of Garth snow called today is against it in the islanders job they're sitting. 13. Points out of a wildcard and try to do the math real quick I apologize yes there's three points out of a wildcard spot or. Does he waits if any other Tom Julian I think I try to wait this thing out. Are there any other teams at our coaches before the season ends or. Could just wait to the offseason and see what happens teams that think they're gonna make the placid don't make the playoffs. Maybe they do fire guys maybe Dallas. Fires Lindy may be. You know again maybe Detroit moves on after two years. From a blast so I. I think he might it make more sense to let this play out. I believe he'll have. Multiple offers. If some more jobs come off the offseason and keep in mind and I don't know how much this matter stick to guys when they're in coaching. He has spent his entire coaching career in the east. Fourteen years in the NHL as a coach 14 years in the Eastern Conference Montreal New Jersey and the bulk of it the last ten years boss in Boston. While couple more things on this franks Sara valley who writes for TS PS and are covers hockey for Tia sent this is a great point. Julie Anne's firing reeks of dysfunction. After months as a talking point and rumored after months is talking point and rumored owner involvement. This is done on the morning of the Super Bowl parade. The idea being that like the owner wanted this guy gone and then today's a great data very appreciative that Sunday night that night. You're right really bury it in the fourth quarter of page with a bigger reducing fired Amendola just went and release it now if not send email. There's save percentage in the last ten games the Bruins. 86% it's 860 who they're five for five on five save percentages 860 they're shooting percentage is 5% brutal. It all translates to hear the Bruins won in a really cold streak and they fired the coach. You know it's funny there is if you wanted to make an analogy to the bills that what happened with Rex. Right how many weeks has Julian been on the hot Siebert reports have been circling the skies gonna get fired. And they wait and they wait and you think it well you didn't like the guy in weeks ago you clearly has an organization. Must've had a debate about whether the fire the guy because all of a sudden all these reports are out the Julien could be on the way out in Boston and yet he twist in the wind. He's taking what he took questions about it last what within the last week or two. He was getting asked about his job security and they let him twist in the wind kind of like what happened with the bills and Rex Ryan hey Rex is gonna get fired I don't know where that story came from he's not getting fired. Few weeks go by what happens though. Rex gets fired. So block it's nice to know. There are other organizations in the world they're dysfunctional it's not just the bills. And that was you know looking back on it. What you know what what they wait not in Boston I guess they were thinking might maybe they'd start playing better but I think it's got an odd timing thing for the Bruins as well. At the fire Julien at that point. Fused joining us Claude Julien fired. Adam approach oaks hockey is still ranked I think. Treated out the owners of the islanders captors in Vegas. Are all simultaneously sitting straight up. Or uninteresting one right. They fired Girard a line doesn't go over well they're they're now playing a little better now they've got guys back healthy right park costs back. Who goes back they're playing better. But I concede the owner in Florida saying okay we need to make it when that we need to make a move and if you do it now. But I can see where that might be an attractive name for a for the owner in Florida to bring a guy like that I got a team that is what. Just removed from winning the division last year and making the playoffs agog but I can bring in Julia and they well they just got to the best players back to right that's a big and they are what and it's a big boost for prediction. Julian hired by the Panthers passes the Bruins and makes the playoffs that would be now let's say after Jordan. I mean are you ticked off at the Bruins are you do Duff to look for job in the division and be able to beat the Bruins got mad I don't know that's where that is on his list but the Panthers. I think the campus would be an attractive job for him. We've got sabres and coached and Myles coming up in about ten minutes but before that. Instant trivia. Football based instant trivia Super Bowl trivia. Flex the old. Abusive brain muscles for the Obama I don't like kill brain OK so Tom Brady's set an NFL record. In the Super Bowl for pass attempts in one game with 62 attempts. That gives him 309. Passing attempts in Super Bowls. I'm looking for the rest of the top ten. Most passing attempts. In Super Bowls. Career combined. Brady is at 309. You don't the next ten please. The next times are. Paid Manny Manny is number two at 155. Play enforceable street many get. Well then I'll go it Kurt Warner number five Kurt Warner in three Super Bowls ten than a 132 passes okay. Elway always number three. Five games 152 attempts. It's surprising it's only 152 and five syllables and especially ending the thirty again you know one or two of their car. Blown out there that they were a threat. What do you what did you guess we've got Brady Manning Elway and Warner Kurt Warner want him okay. Let's see. Hum what about tonight you got where I got when Ben Roethlisberger number eight Roethlisberger in the three games attempted 91 passes that Google higher. Montana. Number six Joseph Montana 122 attempts in four games. Missing number four number seven on nine and number ten I'm gonna throw this out there just because he's in the same classes. Is Montana Terry Bradshaw Terry Bradshaw tenths. 84 attempts in four games I think it's funny. I only would've guessed it because they were in four games I didn't realize it was such a low number yeah. I thought he would had more a crimp Aikman is incorrect. I'm gonna guess. We've got I'm not confident with this economy BS Ron Amadon Ron Amadon using correct. We've got. A ninety's guy. A guy before that and a guy before that. Roger stop at number 798. Attempts in four games. He's kind. Eighties guy. Well wait a minute Kelly got to be in there Jim Kelly is correct fourths. Four games 245 attempts and finally. One more guy left. Born in 1940. Played in the sixties and seventies. Two teams. But I I know I it's no high school it you know the one Super Bowl voted for most attempts this guy went to three. It quarterback Ken stabler. Out of Athens Georgia. And play the NFL it's terrible in the NFL supposed to get nine time pro bowler. Often. Played for the Minnesota Vikings all French market and friends are sentinels your top and purple this. Three. He played in three all they lost four but he was only in three of him that's what to now you are right right after I know they were in for I didn't have the timing revenue was. Couple those numbers though Brad shot 84 attempts in four games and a now if you play in four super bulls like. Peyton Manning on her 55 attempts Jim Kelly owner and 45 attempts here Franco Harris run the ball. Which is I am one of the reasons why a lot of people were looking at Terry Brad are going. You know I know they won four Super Bowls but we're not talking a lead quarterback status here. 80305 get to join us 888550 to 550 when we get back sabres head coach Dan Viles will join us next they're back in action to night. At home against the sharks we'll talk to head coach in a moment and WGR. Sure enough. Season when you really want to know what's going on with the receivers disease on the net and as you aggressor if you respect him. Coach of the Buffalo Sabres fan violence and when Howard in Jeremy right here on the home of the Buffalo Sabres WGR. Radio five there. Thought you might call you melts your power of attorney bite into and and health helping your business stay healthy and my clothes you casino resort falls through casino resort Niagara Falls can. We're joined on the eighteenth you have my receivers that coach Dan miles mode they are home tonight take on the San Jose Sharks game to. In a busy stretch a busy week five games in seven days it's one of the things are gonna bring up with coach miles much coach at soured and Jeremy good morning how are your star. Yeah guys are you don't know that. Thank you good good I know you got you know your mind on the game tonight ambient if you're not aware of it the Bruins just fired Claude Julien. What color okay well they just fired Claude Julien. You've gone through this before what woody when you hear news of coach is being fired around the NHL what goes through your mind as a coach. Not I think this is the fourth floor. Well coached this year. That has been the relieved and and that is. The kind of shake your head a little bit at the volatility of coaching at the National Hockey League it seems to be. You know 456. Guys a year that get elect Golan and I know him. The case that Claude Julian your. The guy who's very successful coaching goes wanna lock into that organization. You know it's just. They probably feel the need to change it sparked thirteen at a time. You know where. Tersely quote to the playoffs and out of the playoffs that. They think maybe a spark here at this time would be the right thing to do. Let me just correct something I said earlier I thought it was the Bruins by a week it's not they just happen four days off in the schedule this is not thereby we they just had a little bit of a break in the schedule. To your team but let's talk about last night in New Jersey how. I got to be just for the dam between you and me. Sabres devils games that are some of the most frustrating. At times snooze fest the games. I thought what what's it like being behind the bench trying to figure out how to get some offense go and went in those games. Seems like. Is that building in particular. But it difficult. A place to generate a lot off Branson and not unlike years past I think you're you watch the doubled the last few games. Cory Schneider played park often and a lot of doesn't allow. Your team's. Just Dallas Fort Jackson and to give up their defense and really the good third defenseman back there are distributed in the park and McGuinness second period in particular just we didn't we were able to. You get there are kept me up at his own generator out or check against the level. What are you telling your guys Emmys. Going into the game if you give you I think did mention a telecast last night you had said something about out. Probably gonna have a low scoring game. So what do you tell your guys when you go into a game like that expecting the won't be a lot of goals maybe not a lot of chances and then what do you tell them as the game is playing out and you look at that. You know six shots in the first and a and a low chance game. Yet we we anticipated at the end they don't sixty minute came out kind of well experts let the game where. I'm you give you got up. Keep playing keep playing your way you play in the right way and sixty minutes. And really if you blinked first and a battle we had anticipated trial we get on I think. You know this the shots or. A little bit low yet we had a pretty good amount attempts in the first period. And several good scoring chances Matt Olson had a Google there in the first we have several good scoring chances than and a play decent first period. But again you just kind of got stay the course no it's going to be a sixty minute game and I really tall corner. Power player in college it was going to be good there at the plant well all its other guys. A couple of particular to plot points things. And or the rear end up getting one power plant doubts or have they get two goals are and that's. I'm not sure what you can say since you're not supposed to criticize officials. Would it be fair to say you felt there were some calls on the eyes that were not made last night. Reporter. Yeah you know. There's the others they get two types of games we think you can cheat called matters you know there's. The referee is conservative and it's called in and then there's not a lot of whistled on the ice he understand that it's going to be a culture away at. You know there's just a feeling that. When it goes a little bit lopsided in the called here a little bit disappointed. And that in the case. I'll ask you about power play attempts opportunities around the league Jeremy was giving us some numbers this morning Dan about. How they've been so low around the league not just one team these last three years the lowest three years in the league. History in power play opportunities do you do you miss power play listen do you remember them. He hit that yes really you know that your your your your. Got up preached that at the byproduct of how you play. You deserve the power play here yet because lonely boy. Yeah earth well you heard the call from the referee at the end. But you go through a game and have 00. And won the last two you used to know. Our coaches that it gave much can't just use the power play meeting a couple games to go to this game. I'm not having a power play two games ago we only get one opportunity yet. That but do you do you when you watched not just your games Dan I'm sure you watch other games around the league when you watch them. Do you believe that you know that the league can just do a better job of getting back to where they were 1012 years ago on just call the penalties UC. Do you think they've gotten so far away from that that it's now hurting that the sport. Although I'm just a believer that the if we. Wanna get more gold in the games because more powerful. And he used. The big spike in gold after the Lotto. And largely because they're called and one of the main reasons was they call a lot of power. In the church the Bucs were eight games seven games specially to start that. After the lock or you're getting 55 and six all play opportunity game and and put your best players on the ice and a man up situations and there was more gold the result than. You know unless they gave I think it's just it's applied only to the whole game and end. Cost or without them. It's just not not that many opportunities in the tank and as a result you're meet your goals in the name. Their bowels of the tyranny AT&T hotline sabres play the sharks tonight 7 o'clock we'll have an on WG are beginning at six with a pregame show. One more question on on the coaching change their Dan about Claude Julian getting fired you've also been on the other side of it where someone was fired you stepped in. What's it like to beat that guy that and maybe it's different if you're an interim coach you know fury assistant the just kind of takes the job but. If you make the jump if you just all the sudden have to walk into a new locker like. Hey guys then I on the coach now what what what is that like. Look at it seemed to register in person meeting the mine mine in particular who has. I was a part of the organization but then the HL team and we'll Berrian called up going to those bases that I knew the players put. There really didn't have a good idea about me so it's and it just you walk in my admin particular look at 2 o'clock came right. You know on Monday in an enemy that on the morning of the game at 2 o'clock. Kicker but I think you know. Like you're just stepped in and then replace Hitchcock in this Saint Louis at. Happening now Boston pointers. You know for me it was a real. Really kind of you had a different. Told a different chatter and with a different coach. Kind of large contrast sued Michael Terry and Mike Terry a delicate job of foundation and at Pittsburgh and they had success the year before you know the to the finals. But. You know I struck a different opponent and they're a different voice and that contrast to loose they beneficial for me step and then took. To Pittsburgh and sometimes. You know like I know beacon device fueled sex and the like you'll of east. John a lot of that as he steps in the Saint Louis and and trying to draw some of the similarities from from all nine. To what he's trying to do and in Saint Louis. What does it matter where you come from when you get the job like I would think one of the things is. You know you've got to earn the respect to those players now you're the new coach does it matter if you're is it any easier assistant being promoted. Former head coach in the league was out of work just got that job war. Coming up from the HL that you had you know the way you came up. I think we'll look at this. Several different entices around the last five years where all those. Had a good result and and some of them. I didn't do quite as well from from those different areas being an extra coach pianist who coached. And taken over at Indian American League head coach didn't. The call up for the first time makes all the stepped in. And Pittsburgh last year and he saw that rebound effect. His semen and they go on have a great happy season and into the playoffs won Stanley optional. You know he wasn't expect coach was an American Nico the climate he got all. Soria I think a little bit of credibility if you had previously year we could. Really do think that. There's. We have Camby and act and they think with Q and have success as a contrast of it and what type of coach. That you have in that. Speak to a change around for the for the players routine. Where with damn about me here at the end of ligature parents up until merry said he was I would Mike Mike show opened bull blog recently. And he talked about the rebuild but he and and some of the struggles of the team in the inconsistency and all that and he said something about how. One of the things they've got to do is tell the players he modest specifically said the young players but help the players get over the hump. In believing their playoff team. How did other than making the playoffs how do you do that if you give us some guys on your roster have been on in playoffs with the other teams. But this franchise hasn't been there in forever how do you get players over the hump and getting group of players to believe they're a playoff team. I I think you. They are big parts of that plane meaningful games and and purposeful games even at this time of the year and and highlighting those. What type of games we aren't and we've had a few of them we continue to have humor I think we're gonna have a and total floor we got five games here the next ignites. And it's a big stretch it's a big stretch for our group and our players. Have to treat those games like they're meet all playoff type games. To get that experience goes. Well winning hockey in plain playing playoff type are. That's the process achieved or got. I think he's got to go through and it's really it's really important to have been games. The players. To have that sent well. You have a lot of games this week five games in seven days you should really talk to the schedule maker. And you got your bike coming up I mean did you have any idea if this is standard around the league this year because of lies and compact schedules and five games in seven days is crazier than a playoff schedule when you get to play five games in attendance. It condensed there's no question about it and are either at or around a 180 days and and then when you take out. Good the Christmas dates and and the bye week in the all star break him. The leader condense it down and a much smaller number than one medium. When you get close to 160 mean every other day. And you know where to stretch right here where. You know we were playing five and seven site and eight years and six and nine. Over the last night in the if you go back rather it's seven and eleven then and it just means a lot of hockey games. You know we. We had a disappointing loss last night given up that power play goal third period. In that game to London and it's a challenge that. To get home last night and got to regroup rebound and security expert. Sound they hear and and the number games or plant that's that's what we have to do. You have to spread out minutes sir dictate what you do differently this week when you've got five games in seven days. Well you like this on these like spread out the minute you like to be aware of that situation. You liked. He would like to be in games where you can do that even more. Where you don't have to tax. A top players and and top. But you know sometimes it's move players around a little bit more spread out next time. And not to not text everybody is much used but you do have to view where Irving our Norplant back to back nights we traveled last night. I think it was a pretty good time she's forest in terms spread notes and minutes and but same guy view you can't leave it to you can't leave the dress or go all I try to. To win hockey games here and that's sort Roger do. Yeah lasting four yeah I I did when asked about Justin Bailey backup be having a good season in the HL he sets and some time here with you this season he. He's certainly brings speed to the game and he's a guy I think a lot of fans are really intrigued about. I wanted to ask you when it comes time to making lines and you see a guy like Bailey what's the thought process there again as a fan I would say. Hey this kid let's see what he can do from him what one of the top six in a one of the top two lines and let him go. You know don't put on the fourth line let him play with some your top forwards what's your thought process when it comes time to figure out where you wanna use just in Bailey when he's up. Well speeded disaster that is. Intriguing it's area Karen particularly. Put up force on the other team wrote in defense and and that the opportunity you want women feel that do that. Without our lineup where that stands right now he's he's getting. Less that he didn't get a ton of minutes in the third period. But. Trying to get an opportunity judgments and with good players in Dubai and ask. You what he can do that opportunity it means. They haven't Jack Ryan. Play a line of evidence though for our ships.

And by independent health helping your business stay healthy also by falls few casino resort. Niagara Falls Canada Bruce Cassidy is the new interim coach of the Bruins not Butch Cassidy Bruce Cassidy yeah one when we get back a story. These sobs go Micah please cast city's first stint as a coach with the capitals at the time. How he lost the room. Quite story six. Six before. Well coached this year that has been the relieved in these kind of shake your head a little bit at the volatility of coaching the National Hockey League it seems to be 456. Guys a year that get the let's go one the case with Clark Julie Guy who's a very successful coach goes wanna lock into that organization. It's just states probably feel they need to change it's. You know where they're tersely close to the playoffs not in the playoffs doesn't think maybe a spark here at this time with the other right things this. Davis coach damn Val and joining us moments ago talking about the news coming out of Boston's. Bruins have fired Claude Julien. If you'd like to watch the press conference good block they're doing it during the Super Bowl parade I'm not sure that anybody in Boston will be paying attention to the Bruins press conference. We're all going to be watching duck boats. Bruce Cassidy is now the head coach of the Boston Bruins. So story said along about Bruce Cassidy is comes from the Twitter account jeepers rank who covers for the capitals Travis Yost three twittered it here's the story. Because Cassidy at one point was coach for the Washington Capitals was his first head coaching gate. So Jaber frank writes this the frustration of losing in the lingering issues between players and coach came to ahead. I one point it was a game in New Jersey Cassidy ripped the team for a three nothing lost made references to players. Not using pregnant wives and sick children as an excuse for poor play. Many of the players have young true children or wives about to give birth Olaf Kolzig and autistic child. Brendon wits wife battling a life threatening illness. All of last year. The remarks angered many players and coupled with two more likely wins mark the end of his tenure he apologized in a meeting with the team. But according to one player quote. That was the final straw that comment really a lot of guys hard you can't take that one back things had been bad for a long time but that was the worst. Cassie left with the right coach Glen Hanlon. Was aloof some capital said it was a bad it was bad right from the start so that's Bruce capacity. Currently the coach. Of the Bruins that's cringe worthy Andy I've you know I'd. I don't know the guys on this and hope that it was just you blew his gasket in the moment he didn't realize she didn't think about what he was saying but that is. I mean there'd be an awkwardness in the room and as you said the probably you say that you can't jam it back in I gets out it's done that you can't deny it you can't. You know different if I ever got out to the public you could somehow try and deny it but once that's out the room amongst the players they don't forget something like that specially with. Affected Brenden with wife had been battling but life threatening disease. That is a coach who snapped and said the wrong wrong thing and I could see where guys would just completely not wanna go to. Go to battle for this guy just have no desire to play for. Claude Julien. This is really going to be fun to watch. He's gonna get scooped up idling the sabres are even close they're considering I have felt for a long time and I've told you a lot. I just think Viles with safe yet. And Andrew Phillip pony actually who covers. Pittsburgh sports 9% in the fan he text me a couple of ex you'll like how safe is files month. And my answer was I think he's pretty safe I think that this team would have to start next year. Badly. For him to even start to get heat dialogue and other heat to be dialed up where are they right now in last. How far they from where we would all think hey this is this is going well in spots about six plus six points yeah. And it's frustrating and it does say that's why it's frustrated in its its of this venom frustrating year. They're not bad they're not good I think are just I think they're kind of bad there somewhere in between there their their fairly consistently. Did it. That's just what they are if you look at their defense score it makes sense their forwards they had scored on a average clips and cycle returned to their goals against is actually pretty low. But in terms of sustaining pressure in games. It's death by blue line they just don't have the horses back there and I think the GM probably knows it. It cool cough being her whole week most of the year is a major factor viewer Tim Murray. And you go to Dan browse month and there's an anecdote about this in the Buffalo News like how aggressively talked to Viles on idea you you want some more from him. In Marie relate to the Buffalo News that you know he is at times Matta the coach at times happy with the coach it's a bit of a roller coaster he admits that. I don't think he's going to be. Overly reactive. To what he sees if they lose tonight and they lose to Anaheim. I'm sure we'll talk Friday about the idea if if Julian Stiller yeah we'll talk about it like. New would you make this move. It's I think files mutt is safe and again I feel like it college program in any one of these scenarios. Everybody's got a price I bet you love your quarterback we're not gonna trade Matt Ryan no way. What Tom Brady's a free agent. Well signed Tom Brady you know you just you might like your quarterback until. A guy that's clearly better becomes available so I think Viles is safe course the X-Factor would be if Marie just logs Claude Julien but I wouldn't expect anything. I think what can get come down to is the guy that's out on the market. Not as much about the guy that you have coaching your team will say this if there's any. Discussion about blouse but it's possible the sabres will look at that you brought up cool lookup filed thrown Bogosian is well he can make the argument that. Two of the sabres top four defenseman have basically missed half the season. Cooler cost played in 26 of 52 games. Bogosian has played in 33 he's missed 22 games and cool cop has missed 26 you might also got to the got to go there's two top four guys out manner from identifying Bogosian I know four but you know what the that I think may well but he is for them pressed for now and ask for now I believe they would identify those guys as top four. And then would make the argument that. Michael missed the first 21 games to top four defenseman have been out Cain missed a month and strolled out all together and as you said. Realistic where are that about six points where we thought they might be at this point so I don't think. That the head coach is on the hot seat nothing that would bring up it's the idea of we talk about this with players I know I talked about it with Tyrod. I don't dislike Tyrod I don't think he's bad but I think you can do better at that position. I don't I mean we might have beeps with some of the things about ms. Dunn in terms of coaching philosophy this season probably is a bad head coach. But if there's somebody out there was a lot better I think you got to have at least have a discussion internally. And and talked about it Tim Murray Terry per goal of the hockey department. And consider the fact that. We were. You know we're not unhappy with our coach but if things don't play out the rest of the season and Chileans on the market you have to discuss the fact that there is a of really good coach out there who might be better than the guy you have right now. Might I think Chileans are really good coach. So I I think you'd have to have the discussion as an organization if you don't you're not doing your job. 8030550. Join us 888550. To 550.
