These cell comprise GO. Well cup not shield itself up dungy ills go bungee own sound gut punch yields down coupons CEO. I'll go Ponzi elves around go to our geo on WGR. Voice of the so. Twice by mentioning Gilmore. But his article is Joseph size is about offensive players. Now we could talk about putting Gilmore and often it's the that's come up. For probably probably has had some family party that you wish you were. I'm not talking about myself that it is generally saying that probably happened. Probably happen to sell a lot right sell. That people want to just talk about. Putting Gilmore on off the worse you remember most or boy B I imagine you're nice and like how do you handle it. I basically just not my head like yeah that's probably. I think that. But I'll I I get I think one I've gotten a times over the last few years is that we definitely got a lot of big EJ Manuel tight end. Wide receiver yeah yeah it's an account via and it got to be it wasn't a swish what in general and rattled all the guy that you got an epic guests. All right so you have a today what the bill should do with each of their own and restricted free agents to be on offense and who's the one you think that is worth. The most time and money. Well first off only off it's a skill guys skies okay because but but you know I think journals the only linemen anyway but there's so many of guys honestly this year. Usually I can do it like. One or two parts but this your head decided. Do it in multiple parts because there's 23. Restricted free agents. And I'm not analyst went 31. One column order is to scroll down keep reading reading so. There's nine and a skilled player positions who are scheduled to become an restricted free agents. Manual. 12345. Wide receivers. Woods are and it went on earns eight. Tight end Greg Reggie Bush in Jerome Felton the backfield I would say to your question Robert Woods is clearly the answer but. I don't think there's any way possible you can keep Robert Woods nor should you pay the amount of money it's going to cost to keep it. Now all I can I can appreciate that they might balk at one to pay him the going rate for a free agent number two wide receiver. But short of keeping an annual meeting in a receiver surprise. What are they going to do owed to address and having that big they they don't have a proven guy there I mean is that it is out of draft pick is that the tenth pick. Human quarterback to. I think I think. Answering how to fill the void left if Robert Woods leaves I think is this is a difficult question. It is but look I mean. What we're really talking about here is who is your number two receiver going in the next year because other than that. The guys you can kind of move it now shuffle and now we've seen that and that's not abnormal around Wheatley you'd love to have. Three bar fight legitimate guys you'd love to have the giants had last year and unique plug sterling Shepperd there boom. You know you're ready to rock and roll I mean but once you get beyond two. Look Chris Hogan was going to be Chris Hogan. As he always then eat at you captain in this office she's gonna give you those kinds of numbers. So I think the answer your question is they're going to try and draft a guy who can be the number two wide receiver whether it's in the first round second round. I think you're looking at CB want to number one and that guy being number two from there. You'll you will try to fill out your roster with either a you know some of the guys they have already on the team hoping they step up and they become. You know better players insulin to roll with it Desmond Lewis he can do that call we list in The Who we haven't really seen it all play Walter Powell was still. You know under contract although he's also a you know urged a return guy type player but. I do think as a boy article there are two guys you should at least. Attempt to bring back that's our keys that when it just an honor I wouldn't give either them a lot of money. But mark he's good weeks. So we're gonna follow the speed to get an offer but I don't think it's gonna be so outrageous where you can't just say where to get via a short contract because your injury history couple years. You'll pay not much money in we'd love to have you back and just hunter's case. Pretty much the same thing although I might pay more than good win because they think his ability to give you some more of what you don't get. From some of the other guys on the team would be a little bit better is there any player on this. To viewers today that you would say or maybe did write it depends on what the quarterback situation has. Well I didn't write that on anyone I'm looking over right now I think. Think I would be ironically enough. It would be Jerome Felton. Because I wanna know what kind of offense they're running before every Jerome Felton back Jerome Felton is still one of the best blocking fullbacks in the league. And you can probably sign him back for a one year veteran minimum deal that's pretty much what he did last year. After he got caught and brought back but I don't he drove felt about my team about to be sling it all over the place he's wasting roster spot. For guys that I can have go catch passes on top of that. But it'll research on what denizens that involve them in the past sparse fullbacks so remember the old days when AM. When he was with the Broncos of the Super Bowl are what's relatives Eric Dyson Alex Gibbs was the offensive line coach and they loved it they love that zone blocking scheme. They did you to blaze at fullback Howard Griffith I should have given Edgerton Howard Griffith was the guy that. He was a guy that really caught a lot of passes out of the backfield he carried the ball some. Any was a blocker and then this year the Broncos what the same route on the kids they've acute that it offhand but Pete at the same kind of thing but they always had. In that type of system. A blocking fullback McCue who was more athletic than Jerome Felton who could catch passes and two more so if that's what you're looking for. Let's see how the draft plays out would see a free agency plays out of you get a guy younger cheaper room can fill that role if not a Bible bringing Jerome Felton and they will need a fullback at some point. Is it risky erect. You guys that teams will go into the draft and they will have needs but. If you wanna take the draft as it comes and pick the best players as your going going into it knowing. Or hoping to fill your number two receiver spot. Could change that for you good doesn't it make you perhaps more prone. To reach for a guy it if say they don't do it ten which mean they could it be great regret Corey Davis at ten they've answered the number two wide receiver. Question penal emphatically but if they don't and they need to draft a quarterback say. And you get to the second round. Doesn't beating to fill that spot through the draft make you kind of reaching. Putting yes we have a great example of that and that this is number two let. Member of the year they draft James Hardy. I have a tall guy got to have a tall guy all right what they do they reached for a tall guy when they are that was a loaded wide receiver draft and you know sort of what the fourteenth 2014 drafts in Watkins and those guys that one of the better receiver draft sort last several years of the George now Jordy Nelson now on Jackson. There were several guys I think the bills reached because they were specifically looking for an eight guys that's why. I say you don't draft for need initially that if you draft for need. Whether you're talking at all like receiver and number two guy a pass rusher Aaron Maybin whatever you draft for me. You're generally going to reach more often than if you just say I'm taking the best football player I can. Although it should get a position your release that. I'm taking the basketball where I can't because if you're just load your team up with good football players and the search you kind of thought your roster because you're gonna eat guys all over the place. You're have a better football team then I took it guy in the second round election taken in the fourth he's not really that good but now I gotta start. So about Joseph with us on the AT&T hotline much over the Bulldog here Gilmore that's not today's column. But right what do you predict happens if you would predictor anything. They give you an offer probably somewhere between the I would say 1112. Million dollar range. Put on the table before free agency and they tell them. Once we get free agency we can't. Promise this will be here anymore took token offer. What's up is it a token offer Novo real offer like that they'll put offer. On the table say this is what will pay you this is where we value I think they'd like to have them back with a aka. It when he lost that value him what he thinks he's valued at so the give and offer the put on the table say. Once we get free agency we keep promises will be there because we start filling our roster what's guys are going in people's hearts Heidi we have to do our things so. If this is good enough for you sign it or. Sure you wanna wait two or three days in the free agency. It's still there may be because we haven't done anything in either of you maybe it's still there but we can't promise. How likely is very key and back not like all right. I'd give it about 1020% chance they won't they won't do franchise tag I don't think so my guy but but but with in the past and we have two weeks. I was told that it's still something he discussed like that they could do it. I just. Don't think they will because. That's a pretty tough capped it again you're talking probably fourteen and a half million. Which is higher and they want him for a year that you're in the same situation go to the next year and here are limited cap space they eat the meat that they. They would like to do something there or do anything with a on the obviously wanna lower that cap number to add a little bit more flexibility. To get the player Agassi it's not a good and plus you know he made it clear is one of tag that was part of the business but. Bills generally don't go that route they have they have in the past we know that they've done they've tagged few guys here there. But some I think Portland was little different. That was always say you know we want hours about you wanna works at an outward kind of close I don't think they're that close that I think that's part of the reason why. Yeah I don't think gifts if then if they thought they were close to winning like if it's Gilmore. Being here. Really meant a lot to bear chances of winning next year's us please not an important player. But went out with him without him there's too many other big questions quarterback for example. Think it if they all sat. I can see them may be living with paying the tax oil and thinking like we we need this is a U we need to have as good years we can possibly have right now. Because we've traded for Tony Romo or you know it Taylor had taken a step last year it was a no brainer that he should quarterback so we're ready to really go after it. But I think short of that and how did that didn't happen we don't know about Romo then the guy I idea I imagine him getting a boatload of money somewhere. Absolutely look I mean going back to last offseason I don't think they ever viewed him as a top five corner I mean here's a guy. Going this year never made a Pro Bowl as an alternate initially did as a third altered he won going. Though he missed games because of the way he tackles and by the lately he tackles the apartment tweet and I am not trying to. Help actually got but the bottom line is he does not like to stick its nose in there and you know that's our ads if you're gonna go a guy that much money either aid. He better be a lock down shut down corner on every team's number one receive your company's gonna win most of the battles. A weekly basis or be better we'll do a lot of the other things. That it takes to. You know make up for that like ill be really good tackler in run support and it would be personal plea in the slot play all over the field. Those kind of guys who thinks that bond pits and any of those categories is a good player but he is he's a good player you'll pay good players. Top five in this. Care to handicapped who the opening day starting quarterback is he could. Hey look I notices every day's question. It's I love it absolutely true staying there so many possibilities. What's less. Well. Remember what we do we did this I I didn't show with Ryan when Bulldog was off one day and took calls from people like what would you put the odds that. And we ended up around 5050 on Tyrod. And then. Karr dale was second puts still kind of lol and I had the rookies in one group Watson said Iraq. And other veterans like you know temperament. I'd say fifty card jail. 5050 starts week one yeah while it is 5050 do you think tyra is gone and yeah I mean and the lesser of. I feel that this year I think last year he stays the cartel Jones starts right now. But I don't I don't say I think he's gone I just as is trading right now I I. Think that there's more chance it Cargile Jones as the starting quarterback picture that Tyrod Taylor is as they sit here today on February 13 but laden. You know he still I think he's still in that conversation and discussion maybe 25%. And the other 2.5 percent. Divided up amongst. No I wouldn't say rookie out probably Puerto. Probably put a rookie and immediately about a 15% in one of those veterans out there and. Place it really the quarterback. Situation. Think back to grow just a few minutes you were talking about receivers retired about Gilmore leaving. That I think enhances your need at cornerback in the draft. So I need to receiver I need a corner I need safety help and we need a quarterback a quick. Mean that's a lot. You know and think about whale the talking with Chris Brown. The day that McDermott got hired and you know the process and all that they. I think you start stacking up there needs. With the reality of them getting them all filled this off season. And I think you're looking at a process here I don't think you're looking at a year where you just hit the ground and go okay come and go win eleven games. No you don't like I was just talking amid the global blog about Tom you know if you think your clothes and you do that. And or would you maybe Tonto and it went what you guys are talking about that I've. I I remember back to I I think that's what they did two years ago we didn't they did at the quarterback. You know they thought maybe EJ and that wanna not being Egypt really. The second year after. You know Terry can about the team essentially they they spent money they went out they were players this was and LeSean McCoy deal. Joseph I play was now paying going to get Charles clay they they went. They went crazy because they felt they were close enough that that they spent a little more money to get a cut to upgrade or get a couple more. You know top players in this league that the drop was gonna be over and they were going to be a playoff team. And it hit more cal and that's part of the reason why they're in the salary cap situation they are now an example and for that I think that you know. That is case but the thing that held back here was the quarterback I mean. They they played good defense they certainly had a good a defense that year and the quarterback play wound up being so inconsistent. That cost them their their stated goal the beginning. There's a good article I'm Jimmy grow up almost future today a pro football focus and be named three teams for him. And I spent a lot of time thinking about this and I thought it was it was interesting Cleveland San Cisco in Chicago. Who happen to have the first three picks in that order of the draft. Cleveland with the most picks to use in a trade. San Francisco with unpredictability of the top of the organization now but for me and I'd I norms stereotyping. For Reid John Lynch. Leaves cushy broadcasting. And also played in the league a long time so I feel like that's old methodologies. That's a team that trades for quarterback closers hired a quarterback coach Wright and Shanahan so may be San Cisco makes sense there but the the few not as many picks to trade could be next year's number one it was speculated this article. And then the bears who have made trades with the patriots before Martellus Bennett. And you have a coach and Penn grapple I went to college in the area. That a coach who spent a lot of time with Rob Lowe was all laid out of this piece. And that was all pretty interest thing each team would have given different reason to think any of those three teams would be a favorite. For Barack blow but. Whatever happens there of course a major. Factor in what happens in the draft. Who is the biggest who's the first most important I guess domino is it Tyrod Taylor or is Jimmy girl oh I think it because. When one happens here it's gonna set off a chain reaction around the league maybe it's Tony Romo I. I in my I think it's Tyrod guys I think Tyrod the decision the bills make that Tyrod Taylor I think. Impacts the rest of the quarterback market more than any decision on Jimmy problem because now suddenly if the bills do it. They're also a team. Looking for want whoever gets him is probably either a getting rid of a guy or. At the very least on he becomes the number one quarterback and a free agent market. Right he's a regional trade for him I don't giving up anything to get him what you would blow maybe even for Romo will see here's one reason why that could be right once scenario that could be right. The browns. And in this was also written in the pro football focus thing. Would the browns want to trade for drop below with the condition of their team with their status maybe not like it that we don't always it's acknowledged in his piece. You don't know what they think of him. Spring like the rim rumors about him and the browns. I think I would like Taylor also because it cost no draft picks. For Cleveland more if he if he came free and so yes like what happens after that Cleveland my point here really is. Cleveland has enough draft ammunition. For teams like New England with a player to wanna wait. Weighed on Cleveland we'll see what Cleveland will do for us they've got the twelfth pick they've got to second round picks but let's see what the browns decide to do and then. Will make her move this Cleveland if Cleveland wants to make the best deal with draft picks canned. Just to get off also offer the most money. With all the cap space it has a Cleveland really has the hammer it might be Tyrod but I would say it is Tyrod if the browns like them because the browns have the most power I think here. I don't know what the browns think of Jamaica oracle but I think it party signaled that theirs they wanna start building this thing up instead of yes being where they were because they made that trade Regina college and then they signed him. Yes to a huge extension I think it's a signal right there that's the first thing that says okay we're done with this week tore it down now it's are they now we need to go the other way so. If you're going to trade for Jimmy drop below you have to have a deal in place and you're signed to long term deal of course are not just gonna trade form. On his one year remaining on his deal he's also armed. You know he's also a little bit younger than Tyrod Taylor and I think he would fit the timeline for them more than what more for what they want. Going forward because they could probably get them you know they said now at a time where the rest their team was tied it just starting to get to where they need to go. As far as the direction in the upswing so I think that would make sense for them more as is Jimmy horrible we like Kuwait in Seoul. What march 11 on Taylor. We'll know so I think we'll know something I don't think they suddenly on March 11 we're going to fight now I think something's gonna come out whether it's from me or somebody else in the media. Somebody's gonna know something about what their plans are. But yeah I mean they have until March 11 and I would expect them to use pretty much the majority of the next three weeks to figure this thing. All right any questions for us. No are you on where you going to spring training here so odd thing about all day at. Maybe Don Eaton I've never been to the needn't see the jays so possibly think it's march 3. Maybe government to Tampa for game either yankees while I. I have but it's it's a big spring training stadium obviously because the Yankees I set up top to watch them but some you know they. Obviously dropped pretty big crowd there too it's a Yankee spring training is pretty crazy that you go there and you know so people get you only get one shot if you look around there maybe to go in. Check out that teams of particles each other just say that the Legends Field I think that would be cool. Might be crazier than the rays regular season in Tampa it might hear about it until it'd LA this year all right thank you sell you welcome guys. I'm like that Tampa though it's quaint feel kind of bad forum teams. Will not let lately a thought to be better than they were last year but in the attic being a good couple years there where. Needed and loved them. And I don't know what it's almost like going there you know you should not like Roger Senator Biden won a few times have been to see the jays I'd like to while an off indoors there. That were the race play on TV interest does not complacent wannabe but I certainly don't want to watch the Red Sox played. It's depressing buy me another game it's dark it just it's no excuse me I'll hear the pirates on at home the way it's all a present on most black golf course I don't know them. We are right there the tank where you could pat raise. I did that. It's just visit. Sting rays are male arrays or summary is so there the race is some country's civil raise sea breeze. Yes pretty much safe raise just swimming around in there you go out there in the outfield and talk some don't do that that's that's an option we did some of that. If there's a relatively new core him into Ronald. Near Rogers Centre news CN tower wording of a tech we can you do that breeze hammered Overton and put them. I might have to go there has had seen them adding I think patting I think it's right but I don't know. What what else it would just be taught taught speech yet just touch fondle little fondle you know that on a Monday we don't talk like that on Monday. The sabres lost and the goal Lee criticized the team does it mean anything how good should the sabres beat this year how good should they be will look again at their. Record and talk about that I like that question for fans who were upset how good were they supposed to be. Is it a problem that there not better than this basically appoint a game about the same pace as last year. 8030550. Much over the bulldogs WGR. A million miles ahead of where we were last year at this that's the way of salt throughout training camp and I think stepping into the seeded here on Thursday it bodes well aware were going to be edited team. Our expectations are much different source of we've talked bottle lawyers are much higher ourselves and we think we're gonna be good team and that's what our life that is so I don't know any of us split the net if you guys but I frankly think that these notes. A bit of an oversight for doing their summer homework is looking past Buffalo Sabres right now I feel like they're gonna give it a little bit surprised by how good we are. There miles above back before the season that's back when Jack Michael have gotten hurt. And you might remember him to predicting 95 points or setting that is the goal here. Ambitious ambitious and you know at the moment he set it. Ninety five's good for almost any team in the league especially for a team that 542. Years ago two years before. All right so are you upset how good should they be. I think their record doesn't tell you that there were behind schedule but they might be behind schedule there. Possession stats have been pretty lousy all year and you know you have games like last night to that end where they're the second best team and against some bad teams in the league. The New Jersey last week as well being another example that they just get outplayed most nights. And I really did not expect. In all year in however many games were in here. Today about will be in the coach at that would be the case and I referenced gain from early last season. Last week one day thinking about a road game in Tampa. Early in the season where they just look like. The eagle what they were ready to gul and you know they didn't mean that in a playoff because it will go one night in Tampa but. I thought it was a really encouraging sign they've got personnel. And they've got a system that is going to enable them out played good teams. I'm a certain uncertain night. And that just has not really happened at all this year. And I think what Robin Lehner had to say yesterday after the game. Tells you a lot about what he's observing. And what you don't get any lines applicable with a lot of what I've heard it. Through. Knew him back to last you're last you're just sort of I never wanted to terms don't know last year when I heard. That players are struggling mobile's mine's communication system is commerce some personally there's issues but like. East peace and New Coke she won the cup shot up senior Wayne is my thought last year with the players. But I'm here and it again this year and now dot Lennar basically saying. We don't play the system these guys are disrespecting the coach basically what Weiner saying. And to me that's him observing the locker room listening to it. And reaching a conclusion that this is holding us back. So I don't think they should be the best team in the league I don't think they should have a record like Montreal or in Columbus but to be. Out played regularly by teams that Jim simply personnel wise don't stack up. I've got a problem somewhere. In preparation. Planning. Just style. Whatever it is these players and not responding to this coach that's sort of the letters telling. And whether they corrected because what are called him on an Emmy night I find that doubtful. That's what frustrates me right now so how much better should they beat. You should be not getting blown up yes when you play New Jersey you should be ready to handle Vancouver at home even though you played last night sort of day. So teams that are around you in the standings should not. Dominic you. And that happens. A lot to this team and I think there is some problem in. These guys not buying into what they're being after poll to do by the coach so that's were my frustration is end. Exacerbating their frustration is that I don't exactly think Tim Murray is of the mind to do anything about it right now so we'll sort stock. But I think that's what their problems so I think they should be yes. Here's Mitch on WGR Le match. I know that I gained yesterday and you could tell that went how physical that game start out to be an elaborate a couple of other. Our young players who also are cool I ecole. Was slipping out there are multiple times in the game he slammed his stick. After the second period. And I blamed partly coaching football players I wouldn't wanna see a coach gets later. Because of their players most early losing their cool and I I I agree with all about it's it's we cannot continue to get. Beat badly hurt two are the brief period. Two teams that are worse than us by I think work where we should be in our development and I purposely we're gonna turn it around from that point and make out a. Okay well that's the way that's one way to Mecca call now while I'm I am not optimistic about that at all I mean I it it's just it's been. Pretty regular that the reach a certain employee and then lay NA. And it's you know they were gonna do is he within three we get a chance Beckham back with Boston whatever is and you just get some of the worst performances of the year in the spots. I don't know. Hockey can be funny it can turn on a dime. But I don't. I don't at all sit here right now and think like all the other structural they go 81 in one through the next tends to sit there aren't suited to this haven't gotten there yet they have 26 games left to make the playoffs that probably need. 1718. Wins so good luck. Frank is on WG Harlow frank. Good afternoon gentlemen I hope your well thank you. Should be nervous it's only you're about to tell me that I'm grounded that. A player voice. Just kind of be. The sink in this. In this. What I have to say. I'm not upset for the sabres are right now especially considering all the injuries and to whom the injury occurred. But I think that the frustration among the buffalo fans comes from watching. I don't. Sitting there. So far bowl last year and now all of a sudden there and the urgent. Oh playoff position. I think that might be a small factor but I don't think it's a huge factor. Well take it for myself. Yeah well that would know. No not not I say vote for myself it's not. But to route you know and they don't have that anymore points in buffalo and consider in the buffalo and all the injuries again you think it would have been much further. That a turnaround I look I'm stuck here in the middle of Ohio. And I am you know I get some news from the from the Blue Jackets and of course the only reason we didn't lose because wedding and the position that there is that they aryan and where they came from. It's it's rather. I'm almost remarkable but be that means that. Even what's that the project is called. For the ad called yesterday for a meeting with quarter relative clarify. Is. Whether they're not they're good. There are IA I politely recommend frank you open up Corsica hockey one day if you get bored just look at. Some of the smarter numbers Toronto was pretty good last year. Especially for a last place team they pour goaltending they finished thirtieth and they won the lottery I don't think it's surprising. That thirty cent. Make him score a problem is defense right now. Columbus got really lucky in scenes power play conversion rates it happens you can get lucky and when sixteen straight games or MG. Buffalo. Still mostly bad last year the year before or shortly bad this year still mostly that. Key. Where's are lucky if I'm lucky I was able to sit and hear you arguing that discrediting. Sixteen wins and roll or the ten wins and roll and wouldn't it well like. The best we know what the three games in overtime it all kind of loopy. There's not really indicative that they've routed any kind of a corner and it didn't give barely even Muster up the big gumption to get. What about that for crying out. Some lofty. And discuss I would look to be listen here. You can use their own eye test their own way of determining whether they think teams are good. In almost all the stories you get all the stuff about sticking up for teammates horror you know. They're good in some periods of the good in some buildings are all that I've got no time for me that. What I would love to be able to do is have this team B five points out the people that. Drop a stack of Corsica stats in your lap every day Mike don't worry about it hang in there Thomas basically have Boston's year or just like a small version of that. Where you're record isn't as good as you'd think as I would think it should be. But like just relax the goaltending is good. You guys are controlling you guys the sabres are controlling games just stayed cool media make it you deserve better if you don't make it then top block. That is not working poor bet. That is not where rat so I can't say that they could also have. Oh lucky year like Columbus. And I would pick my spots telling you that it's gonna it's gonna end badly probably. But most the time I just stay out your way and you know you've got to playoff spot all but assured that would be nice to. That that is the thing about this team the it yes is that is the personnel. Perfect of course now. You know. For dune fault means the defense of death has been tested. But. For the most part it upfront I've got my guys and furthermore despite the the problems on defense. You don't. They're goaltending has been good the good they don't suffer. Badly as a result of having this this troubling personnel on defense. I am India's well into the second year with this coach and his style and his system. And I've got rhino rally and I've got Jack Michael and I got Sam and art and I've got rest mistress lineman I've got a gander came if you want him if he's a part of this. But I've got. But some some some core guys here in there's no. Real evidence to support that error. Figuring out how to play the with this guy. But under this but this does not improving. But they're they're play. Generally like. There almost a lot and then they get their roles and the win some games but there never been it'll look good. And the stats can tell you sit down and watched opinions and goal. Am I know it's only one not in your New Jersey but I didn't guilt but it is it is a just survive getting the puck out of my zones like to make a wind change. Shift after shift after shift. It should not be the case with a team that has drafted the talent it's drafted and traded for some of the other talent they've traded for. The vision not be getting handled that and it happens regularly. 8030515. I will. No I will not and if that I just checked my script we're never gonna know I just checked my script and I've chosen that I will not do. That thing that I didn't tell you about yet. So stay tuned for that not happen all yeah. Paula amateurs don't miss. Paul Hamilton later from Ottawa where the sabres play tomorrow night to 730. Games this week at Ottawa tomorrow at home to Colorado on Thursday much over the Bulldog lines open now this is WGR. It's mental error I'm not sure maybe it's mental or physical other nations to slap the next few should could be at that that we didn't play well but that game's over with so we do a lot of good things in Toronto we've got to get things you know since 2017 came around. I think that consistency of our claimants sixty minutes and she's a little better. Jack cycle and the sabres play again tomorrow night in Ottawa. They have beat Ottawa three times this year and lost in a shootout in a fourth. Tomorrow the fifth and final meeting pretty good. Ottawa. Has a six point deficit. Better put Montreal as a six point lead. On Ottawa Ottawa has five games in hand on Montreal so they are at a better. Point per game pace Paul beyond its six Paul might say it this way I like to do points per game and Ottawa is at a Montreal this point. Which would be correct about that. I am with Boston. For money. And you don't ID. Encouraged judgment I welcome or welcome judgment could. Sure but they are what I want they are a great possession team at a great price so. Let's see I think there is a pretty realistic scenario were Boston gets in and plays only a couple one or two you know okay teams in the playoffs. And then has one top opponent. Maybe the penguins and the capitals in the semis. And you can catch that if you want if you get them on the east bet you can hedge at that point Neil I've done in Washington has to be the favorite right. I probably I don't know they've every been made the semis already fears oldest. The thing about making them without I wonder if that's factored in are you just look at what you call the your is going to mean there're there are the first in the conference how about a lot. They are a nine point lead on the second best team in their division. And they played two more games in Columbus okay. It up fourteen points out of Montreal was the first place team in the Atlantic peel the division in the conference and indeed they walk like the class of the of the of the certainly the conference. If not leak it's the capitals and penguins. Right in the eye was crystal really good right. Sabres have beaten them. Such as it was in a shoot out Cal O'Reilly that. And you know. They did not beat the capitals in three tries its close ones Leo but they didn't win. I have had a terrible time lately keeping. My glasses calling. I've got this thing in my hand here that they give you what the glasses place to keep her glasses cleaned him do these become erupt probably dirty. I'm always touching it or he in my pocket I lie I think so. Yes do you have to throw these out I think you need need freshen you depression mop and one that makes sense that you would do you wash them. But this thing looks like you could. Oh in the wash I didn't feel like never wash one I don't know. And I've never bought new ones. To rebuild what's left paper towels. Tissues you know. A lot yeah I mean I have those things in my glass cases and you want in my truck at home but editor leaves. They'll. And so usually sure. Which I think they get mad if I I think every hearing that they don't you do that I did that with a pair of sunglasses when I bought when I went to the same place you got your glasses I got my glass is there. And I started to student out of habit with my sunglasses. And the lady went home these inscriptions. Disturbed and the use my regular glasses and they seem all right communal group I'm fine. Another bad habit you're getting away with us is is this sabres season a problem we've talked for a lot of the first half The Today Show about that. Considering what expectations. Were or what yours were. Is it a problem that this team isn't better how big of one what should they do about it the trade deadlines coming up is there much they can do there. The coaches Wear off in this conversation arrives. What about for you last night's game another disappointment for the fans. 8030515. Your theories your advice for them we'll talk about all this stuff so more as we come back and Paul Hamilton will be on again later today. Much over the Bulldog here on WGR.
