Otter AT&T hotline ball Hamilton he was at keybank setter last night watching the hockey game all. On how aria. What's going on over there hour. Well. I woke up yet to problem it's not what who who proceeded to tell me. That in the newsroom we have one person there and it doesn't know what that symbol is monopoly I note that news and other person there is no who Yoko Ono news. I know who I know both of those is who's going on OnStar on 2.0 yeah. And our building right now I'm like life. I think fakes and wanna go listen to their show all the symbolism the monopoly based I never like to play the us. I didn't like a symbol I was the race car what there was that I think a dog in term of wood and I was never that and the person doesn't of the symbol works it. WB and the other one them and so word with route then how could someone I don't know who Yoko Ono. Younger kids would know Yoko and it's very possible to know where your Colin. Well Paul world so that's why we're noble for those things I'll delve into it. Actually Paul. I was gonna ask you what the heck is going on I mean here's NB CSF Intel and everybody in the pregame last night Michael's unhappy with his line mates and he's been why it. You gotta get a bottomless. Michael never say the about that anybody else so. If for a kept getting a lot of things about or what they're saying dammit broadcast. Which I was kind of scratching my head if that's actually what they were saying so. Yes that's. I guess that's and neuter birdie except whoever says that I'm I'm a brought here in light so that. Sarcoma and was a Gomez took the garment before the game I guess. So anyway Paul what's the story of off last night's game that they dodged a bullet because they did what they really had to do they had to be Colorado. And it's nice to do in regulation and it's nice to just look like you can be the better team. It was just yes I CME you have to put it in context. And understand that. Colorado just not a good team. In anyway shape or form I mean they would get the puck in the defensive zone and they just. As soon as it really hit the stick it would they would immediately just put it anywhere. Just it was like oh I don't want to simplistic. And nine times out of ten it was sabres day. And you know they they would continue the pressure they have. Cholera team so. You know that's the way buffalo wants to play you know a lot of time in the offensive zone which keeps missed chances down the mirror and then. They had plenty of chances their home they didn't convert many of them but a very easily could seven goals in that game. And that's the way they want a player but again and I don't wanna take anything away from him they they went out actually VO played well. But. Also have to understand. The competition they were going up against duke. Yeah they're bad justifiably so there there. They're. There are a bad hockey coupons that are watching Colorado last night that the numbers didn't Barrett out which shot attempts. But watching Colorado in the way the game was playing out a remind me of the sabres tank team and it just. Conducted out of their end and I just I I mean I never felt like Colorado was a threat. To actually you know win the hockey game last night I like a lot of things I soften the sabres. All other then they didn't finish all the chances again. Yeah it's it's as simple as that and I'm I've actually I've been thinking it has had been talking here about what you said about Michael. And let's let's let's spurt for example say that's true he's playing with a Evander Kane and samurai in our. Who would be rather play with you know and I'm content and take on the roster. That's that's basically who should be playing with that I think you know who would be rather be playing with yet that we'd like Ryan wrote to move winging complaint with them and again he does make clear he has not said that that something has got goma's claims that he said. He's never set to anybody and he's either actually. Talked many times about how he likes playing with Cain and Reinhart Everton. Address that many times and he doesn't like critical space when he says it like he's lying or anything like that so. But even if that were true I'm I'm thing in my soul OK cool would be schools whose or play it. I mean. There aren't a lot of options it's not like. There Roland. For a phenomenal lines here and he's he's playing with. The worst two forwards on the teams he's played with the hottest guy. In on the team and in hander came with nineteen goals he's always enjoyed playing with samurai narrated as talked about that that. He had a great guy likes you know they put on our back on his wing Houston wanna came outside that's cool it's great I like playing Sam we have chemistry in. That type of things so and I find that rather interesting. And he can get one of those nights again taking what it's worth but the result was that Michael is just he just move when he was Salem PA one of those nights Paul that made bees start to think what. At the end of his career. Portal his career high in points in a season beat. You know he's when he's got a complete team around him you know the defense picking get the puck to the forwards. And not to say that needs better wings right now but just. What what is his ceiling like last night's the kind of game I know Colorado is terrible but how many assists Claudia had five. Now like if we should he was all over last night. Ivan Rodriguez can data for five point game two the way he played in. And the last goal was assisted by eichel and Rodriguez's. Oh be fancies to quite often. As. If they don't usually you know having ice well off and together. With grant getting hurt they were like inserting players into the fourth line. I think Jeremy what you saw when you were asking me the one time as they they would answer that that guy in the fourth line. It and then when your rate airlines came up and they had to shuffle for one shift through. And then they went back to their their regular. Alignment Africa. Well I'm not Evan Rodriguez is this year up this year thing and I and I never really gave it much thought but he's looked pretty good and two games. Remember Murray and we could we ask because we're thinking the same thing. He played two games last year was very good and we were thinking McMurray wound up saying. That he's playing quite a bit better in the NHL but he doesn't HL. And I think he's doing it again. I mean who's doing OK let me show good enough to get a call but it seems like he gets to the NHL only plays even better. The first game we've played in. It seemed like. After awhile he was afraid to go in the offensive zone but he was very good defense and zone is they have the lead. And he wasn't the only one doing Matt. And but pawns in an Iraqi state. A guy shows up on this team with a leads a pretty go on the offensive zone it seems like a general theme yeah I announced they would feel wanted and that and he was very good. In his own end and the reason. You say to yourself that's pretty good because he's not on a sermon he's just learning the position in Rochester. So that shows you how intelligent he is as a player that. No he's not a position but yet he comes off to buffalo. Is playing the way he is and performing the way he is. That just shows you what a Smart player he is unity can throw you curve balls out of and it's no big deal with him. How's this. Speed quickness could see you know this team needs Bailey stands out like a sore thumb he moves up the ice so well. I never I don't. I guess I didn't know enough of DeVon Rodriguez seed he looks like he's got some decent move to and I couldn't get up ice yeah I get a bye she's got this message Justin Bailey but it's faster than Ryan O'Reilly so its kind in the middle there who got. You know so but yeah he he does give up by race and you know you you notice them getting back on and the back Jack because. He's usually the first one back. To be able to get back so. You know he does have he does a pretty good wheels and I think you'd you'd get an upgrade there when he's in the lineup. As far as that goes on. A lot of fans all right well these Bailey and Eritrea have to stay and I don't disagree at all with what their saying. But only 23. Roster spots until after the trade deadline. They righted too they're still in that salary cap thing where he threw me for them when they have a couple of guys up. Far salary cap goes so they quit line up and me we don't have a choice. Weeping nick to warrior mammals and or whatever else cute things that parents wanna do this year you can't do that. Because they are tension drag expanded. That they they had to have guys available to them to make. Available to Las Vegas and they can't risk. Putting them out on waivers and and losing them and can you would have thought well it's no rush to put their ran out waivers and next thing you know is on so. The of that's that's that's the pickle they're in right now. And it would it would not. If they were to have to send those guys down that it's not a good statement to make those players we that's when I was there at the right to stay. Yet Paul. When your conversations and he's just talking to Bailey because they fans have in a bit of a split that he should have been here longer or maybe that the fact that he's not here is is part of what makes his development. What has an on this track. Is he have them them the mentality and mindset of and give getting really discouraged if you're to be sent it down again even if it were a number or expansion game. He might because he has talked about. That the fact that you know he's the he's really concentrated this time that this is his time now. You know he's got the proper development and gone to Rochester learned a lot of things and done well now America. And earned his call up and then gotten up here and earned his play you know and and it's all fall in the place tournament. He he said he's really. Can feel it like this call up that you know it's it's it's it's right. He you know he fits in now he's playing where each where the way he can play. Andy. Would be a big blow away and I'm surely be explained to him. YP. If if it were to happen why he has to go down. Carrier was able to stay they basically had injuries the whole time. It may be able continue to have injuries that you know you don't what we're talking about they don't even have to worry about. Burgers this is skating but he's not close to contact you're anything like that so. You know grant just got injured the with a shoulder injury we don't know how long he's going to be out so. This all may be moved because the injuries may keep coming. And you don't have to worry about it. But you know that's the reality. The NHL when you're 23 man roster and salary caps and experience and giraffes and all of those types of things that sometimes it's not going to be fair and a call here afforded Paula do you for the weekend. Dave in buffalo Iran WGR with Paul right ahead. A good morning guys have all our morning or that Germany I I care deeply about this during the games when I see it I don't know what might lead. All as you noted throughout the year and maybe until a little bit. On the power play at Bristol looks Michael off and he can't he get. Are likely to be that they're pretty liberal utterly one timer personal look at him and putted on the wallets guys hit the from the Al. Michaels coming up here on the right side looks a lot figured it. Across your system reopened and the person in my act like. I don't know that he tells them that the power. Could be shot what I've actually Bristol being on the second power play. Which is more beneficial the old guys had a big booming shot. And what side they're on a double look about one and LG noted that could probably be could take a look at and TV knows own pocket pol. I've Dave thank you for calling I did see your tweet last night and I'd like to thank you know I'd like to yell at you for ruining hockey for me because. After you start realizing it I started looking for it and he did and I noticed it really so I don't Israel her. But me no maybe if you just look for something you find something so Paul. I don't know if you'd of noticed it but. Look for it now where now the Davis ruined it from about I noticed that last night not in a nutshell slow mummies. I wouldn't go so volatile and all the stories about a button hole sets out what he doesn't like him or anything and he doesn't like competitive and effective play yeah. Are on the ice or anything like that so it's not something conscious move within a notice about Bristol line in last night. Was he was getting shots yeah the witch's power play and he needs to work on know all the old game power play I'll regular game. There was like a while he's getting the shots through that something up that I felt he needed to work around for awhile than it was nice to see it that for sure he was doing on the power play ploy to get himself in the middle of the ice. And the point shot through going to inferred you know even as well there's no word yet is he right or did exactly what you described and and got through and that's why they're ethical. Have a good weekend and you got two games. We'll talk Q1 net well talked connection at some point even others about.
