Paul Hamels CN. Now the. Eileen that. Studio he felt sorry for him. Area really that we had no idea what they like what do we do with Paul this week you know like what we do it grand pop and Wheaton doesn't morgue so. He's here in studio forests. For this whole hour Holmstrom of Jerry wonder road trip and he won't. Colorado Kellie Pickler she's playing in a bar Syracuse not Richmond to wanna go to Colorado with fuel and cut with the SEC Seattle and the answer to that is. Yes because you don't wanna go see Kelli Pickler a bar circuit she goes to Colorado it looked ago. And the skiing out there is wonderful I thought either that or the Rocky Mountains clearly there's it or something to draw mountain Colorado. The Hoover. It's the only place I've ever ski wants to ask you once in my life was in boulder some some mountain up in boulder. One of my teammates broke his leg. So I was in his season. And it's clear Julie Goldstein know the coach taught taught us how to scare anybody never ski taught us he was good skier. It let me ask you this case because it was the first time ever gone only time I've ever if you can do hockey stops you can jump on skis that's what I found out because I was like going 900 miles an hour down hill and when reminder. The natural thing to do was stop William Wood on skates. At least slowed me down. And then of course Paul got cocky so the last run I went up to be here as is your all your other friend are you you know me only a third all right iris that I did -- our we're doing a third person ought to cut and went to the big hill. I rolled down that hill I don't think a ski for more than three feet the whole time. And everybody was in the large waiting by the time I got them now shall. Our world on the home with the log out when I read that wasn't a real good idea. That's beautiful out there everything about it it's beautiful out there in Colorado I have a lot of fun but I never ski I would say she. It's scenery it is it's an elite state he whiskey before what are you crazy. Does do you think I would I am I in the biggest what's in the world do you think I would ever go out of colonial chair I offered Howard com I like I pay for a session to come join me with my trainer. No no dice yeah that's what I don't tell. I know no I don't wanna work out no well I I have an aversion to sweat. I would love. I don't have the guts I will never I'm telling you right now I would never tried to ski I wish I would. Because it looks like a blast in what I would really love to do it and it'll never happen to millionaires. Love to ski jumps on to. I think that would be an awesome feeling ski show off flying through the air like ski jump like any deal parachuted out of a plane no never done that I would do Paul did you not hear the part right cinema big what's. Why don't you start with parachuting out of the plug on its many planes I and I'm don't plan on jumping out of any of the prosecutor should do was show from a from a plane and then jumped to both you jumbled the pets live on the air it don't he's jumped live on the air are we doing there we're doing it I would still never do it but are we doing this like Rex right round like attached to another guy doesn't he's doing you actually have to you and your first but that's young waiter they wanna just jump on yourself out of a plane okay all right you do when you. And X multiplayer. Did for a lot of I thought for sure you're heard of Europe for an. And ethics compared to me he's the most scary guy in the world peace no forget it is just not happening boom but it felt mr. you I would I would love to ski I'm just never gonna actually put put the effort in to do it because I'd be afraid of breaking every bone in my body road trip is Colorado then the coyotes. How's that trip. Arguments plane right you're always a huge turbulence and that Denver to Phoenix or Phoenix and Denver it's it's the worst first plane ride it again. On the problem liberally in Phoenix were an airplane Denver Colorado plane go to Phoenix and it's actually a 6 o'clock. Times start in Phoenix. So I mean words were not even in Phoenix for 24 hour Leslie Sundays and Saturdays and now. In the NHL's wisdom why don't issue are buffalo has the home and home coming up with Columbus in March. Columbus is also on by a week this week. Wouldn't it make more sense to coming out of my weekend off or Paulus went home home. But no no let's let the sabres head out to Denver played back to back with the Arizona. So I told Howard yesterday that's the NHL's version of me wanna thank. From another bar we've learned. Where you know let people come I don't know how we can hold near our our aren't aren't doing well but won't let you go out and earn Arizona I'll be all right are you suggesting that the trip to Colorado is a punishment isn't going to disagree. And tell us just up just fine off the bye week and got a little bit early part of the players who ask you this. Our players required to fly with the team. We can all just meet there Ellis save. Evander Kane's home in Vancouver Tyler and misses home and Edmonton. Sam Reinhard is home in Vancouver they can just go to now it would make any sense to go all the way to buffalo to hop on a charter and then go all the way to Denver so. So long as your press the sabres are when you have a scheme on the sixth day some teams have the full five days off. Of course sabres don't so they I think if yeah if there's a they have to fly but they cannot practice for 4 o'clock local time. So which is 6 o'clock here so the sabres will practice in Denver at 4 o'clock which will be 6 o'clock here and then. Have to probably be on the ice for over an hour you would think when he had been on the ice for five days yeah and then play in Denver the next day playing altitude and. I didn't think about the altitude so so the biggest deal like we were talking about the they mentioned the other night on the telecast Paul but bottom is here for the hour 8030550. You wanna ebony Saber questions or hockey question during the U wanna bring up. Closing at I think I'm trying to sell your tweet about Ian Rapoport and I'm trying to think and reacted the same time. So. I think the last twelve teams come off their by a ball law. Their first game coming back from the botanist when he teams have had to buy their for twelve group. 412 for an OK you know the sabres do get the worst team in the league so that's. Canonized a little bit better they went after they played buff with a win 11 in overtime and Carolina. At a home game up I don't know Murphy one of but I remember was close there was it was a one goal game. So they put their play a little bit better lately buffalo that's another place they haven't won in ages. Gender I believe so yes. The just have no legs what's the what will be the biggest problem Saturday night when they start playing in Los avalanche buried there are bad enough passing team is it is a we've CC impasse on Saturday night. After not practicing for five dirt every one practice in five days. From the out WGC the passing of the Blackhawks. I actually you know what Paul Pierce through every up. Lack of fractious thing about this whole month Lou how many legitimate regular practices to their front when they're playing games every you know every other day pirate. Quote from Boudreau that his team hasn't practiced at all partly west it's worse for the Western Conference teams because of the travel. So they always get home at 2345. In the morning that no matter where they go unless it's Anaheim LA. So it's like what do you do make got to make the players coming in practice when you get in a 4 in the morning. So it's actually been worse for the Western Conference teams as far as practice goes. Let's get some football on because this is. Live breaking news right we have you can you can audible. Ian Rapoport says on NFL network it's more likely the bills keep Tyrod then move on from him. Now that might mean. That they've made progress on a different contract yeah right. Depending on what you believe from Tyrod and his agent or could they won't take a pay cut it could mean that it could just mean that the bills are. More than likely ready to pick up that option but he Rappaport says the bills are more likely to keep Tyrod and move on. And my guess would be that would be more coach oriented that the new coach came in and has a evaluate things looked at the offense and said we can work with them right you know what is offensive coordinator and said you know we can work that I would be my guess that that. It's more coach related that he may he may not want to move on from. Yeah I I would I would tendon. Tend to think that two things have happened one bright it's McDermott it's Dennison it's the coaching staff sitting down to valuing all the players in going to Doug whale thing. Yeah you know what will will figure out how to make this work with Tyrod and I I would think if if he. Sticks to what. Store the story came out that I'm not taken a pay cut are you wanna restructured affix the cap OK but I'm taking a pay cut. So my guesses are expected build just pick up the option say you know it will commit for a couple of years with tyrant and a. Hope that wouldn't change things and I speak from. I I don't have time to watch college football and hockey season. I saw IC want to play once but I've also seen that some people think the bills might want to draft him if that is sure planned. I would hope you would still do it even if you keep Tyrod. Now it's still hope that if you believe in this kid and that is your plan to draft this kid that you don't change your plan because of this. Draft a kid anyway. And and move I mean I. I would still go after a quarterback. Maybe if you if because to me you have an address you haven't addressed the problem. All you're doing is he's a place that are waiting for the guy who eventually will address the problems so that's all I would say is. Period do that that's fine. But if you have a quarterback you believe in in this college draft or that you wanna go get. Proceed don't don't stop. I'm not expecting that to happen I think that's one of the that in the layers of discussions we have about Tyrod that's one of the problems I think if if they decide to. Pick up the option or he stays under restructured contract. I think they would absolutely look at it and say. You know this is read here were close. Raleigh and for the playoffs that they would be thinking we're keeping Tyrod because we're gonna make a push for the playoffs this year. Which means they don't take the tenth pick in the draft and use it on a guy who won't play for. The year two years to get older that I mean Tyrod can he can be the place that are but you're thinking like how we think you're not you gotta think how they think. I don't I don't mean that I'm not trying to sound like a jerk I I seriously think. If they keep Tyrod and commit for a couple of years to Tyrod they're gonna look at the tenth pick and go we're gonna get ourselves a safety. Our restore her wide receiver were to get a guy comes in an impact when he seventeen. In an area where we have a whole right now if that was our plan if that. Their plan that's fine I'm just saying if their plan was. To get we've proven quarterback I don't want them change their plan just because if this were were to turn out to be true yes. And I would say to their plan of the last seventeen years hasn't worked so maybe they should do things a bit differently. Now what would be differently this time around the what we say do it differently you mean just don't settle for the quarterback don't settle I mean content. How long was it what route they gave drafted manual paper after quarterbacks in the seventh round they drafted Jones but. It just seemed like an. They were really going for a quarterback is like. Well this'll work out at some point. Is kind of like the way they they were approaching it. And I don't want to do that I want them to go forward and even if you have Tyrod Taylor here I still want you to go forward. How whichever way you were trying you're planning on doing it even if he wasn't going to be here. Well I end up thinking about this as looking to the future. I am excited to November have a conversation how he said three offensive coordinators in three years and he needs more time back McKnight I we'll be right there there's a big third offensive coordinator and that's a fair process and it it it. Partly I still think he is who we is but I mean do part of the reason they fired last offensive coordinator was because he was asking him to do too much and now we have. It'll be Rick Dennison who asks him to to run the offense if in fact he does return. That is the thing I worry about Paul without making it about you know I want them to tank worst case scenario is he's just good enough to win them seven games. And then they're drafting eleventh. And there are three starting quarterbacks that are gonna go off the board. And like you think well who also redone again and it just ends up a list of vicious cycle of were never gonna do better than this guy were never going to be we got to keep them because were afraid of falling off. And you just stuck in the same spot that you bent for ten years. For seventeen years you know to me it. If you don't think he's the guy that particular promised land move on. If it means Jones is gonna star for a year I don't care what it means. I don't wanna keep the guy just because well you know what he. We don't have any better right now also want to know. No coach I don't want the comments early this conversation earlier on in and guests like ice but I think that Israel should. I don't want to hear that get rid of him if you if you don't feel he's got to take you to the promised land. And you you can't get them for our reduced contractor or whatever just so he can be the place holder yeah until you find that guy because you're aggressively going to be looking for that guy. Adjusts. I do I don't want it I don't want the conversation withdrawal. For this year there's really nobody better Nolan. And then an emirate go get a safety Oreo Leo I'm back corner of this news that. We're not address for another year and what we're maybe worry about next debut on May be to get us there. May be the new offensive coordinator will make him into what we think he could have been when we went down and just. I should I shutter to be thinking about I'm. I'm almost none of that money that there haven't they have had that conversation I I because if not the alternate. Side of that is and I don't think this took place if this if they keep Tyrod right and we sitter and think well it's not the GM it's the new coach. You're gonna tell me the new coach in the new offensive coordinator looked at two years of tyrant here and are convinced he is the franchise quarterback you have to keep him now I think it's. This well what's out there guys what our options let's look at the free agent crop. Let's look at the draft class but it's great for 2018 that's a better quarterback draft class I think the conversation actually comes true. What are our options. There's nothing better. Let's make it work for couple years with this guy but it Jeremy said you're not gonna get in on the Tony Snow thing because in my autorads gonna get unified Barrera over a game under 500 and now you're out because in the meantime if you do keep Kyra yes they are gonna try. And make their defense better right away they are in it they they have to bring in another receiver they have to get another safety if not too. You know linebacker whatever else they're going to try and make this team better right away and 2017. And try and fight for a wild card playoff berth I'm sure they would if he. And if you don't do it if you don't keep them. I don't. Personally I don't know of cardinal Jones can be a quarterback in this league they can spend a year find out if they'd like as are waiting for that draft the word is talking about. And that's really not tanking. That's taking a guy that you think has some promise that might be able to play. And finding out if he can employ it's almost and yet you're gonna go another year without making the playoffs and what he turns into Prescott's rent or something like that. But sometimes you you've got. If you're if you're forward thinking. You've got to sacrifice one more year for the betterment of the group. Paula the Syrian studio we've been talking a little hockey that we switched over because he and Rappaport if you just joining us from NFL network. Apparently went out. The network this morning and said the bills are more likely to keep Tyrod Taylor then move on from Tyrod Taylor so that's why we cannot. Dovetailed into football you can grab a line and share your pin on an either discussion at 803055888550. To 550. Paul how would you feel about again the whole season has yet to play out they haven't signed a free agent. They haven't re signed up their guys if you know of their key guys are even going to be able to. They still. Technically could tagged Gilmore the deadline is until March 1 they hasn't been a draft so. There are a lot of moves in need to be made but. If the first big move is were picking up the option on Tyrod Taylor what kind of a hole do you think it would set for the 2017 season. What I'm attitude I don't know I I don't know if you guys do a better sense of the fans being in here talking to fans and I do. I had my senses that they problem that there would be real happy campers as far as fans go. It's going to be interesting on their free agents on defense. Because they're a lot of guys who played last year who fit the rats running defense. Alexander's right in the top of that list in Seoul. All the sudden you don't you don't give him a contract offer new let him go people know what he's doing. The guy who most rumored to have a lot of more than being in the year more than the end of the year but. Lot of people assume why you let this guy go well maybe because the new head coach is gonna commune near and say hey you know what. That's not gonna fill what we wanna do here yeah and and there are a couple of guys like that on this team that. Maybe don't fit what they're gonna be trying to do on defense of their of those will be some interest in decisions that they have coming up. Ants in you know Alexander's got a command a fairly good dollar I don't think is going to be. You know top money for for that per guy cameras to rush the passer but certainly going to be quite a bit more than you made now his agent was thrown out numbers like five to ten million dollars a year. If so is he going to be around. I've I'm not sure I Zach brown guys Zach brown is he going to be around I'm not paying Gilmore. Top quarterback money and it's not because I'm the typical fan who thinks he's horrible I know why I don't think he's horrible. But I still don't. I don't I don't wanna strap yourself even more on the cap for a guy who I don't think is one of the top five corners in the league I think he's very good. From I I think he's a lot better than people give him credit for but I don't I don't think that would strap myself on the cap just to keep them. I think. I'm not sure you could keep Tyrod and tag Gilmore. And still do what you needed to do in the offseason almost feel like that they've decided there they're they're going to keep Tyrod they've decided they're moving on from Gilmore. And whether you draft a cornerback or. What you know maybe you find a free agent quarterback at a much lesser salary than Stephon Gilmore I feel like you can't do both of those things that. Tyrod staying would mean they've decided we're just not gonna paste a fund you think that's fair that's probably that's probably right. Either way they've I think he probably made the decision I think they know which way they're gonna go with but I mean not even try and get it it like. There's no way he was ever gonna get top five money. But I you know I I I would have thought they would continue to try and see if Gilmore could come down closer to where they are almost one of they would just say. Yeah listen we're gonna go with Tyrod he's taken sixteen of our cap. And we're gonna have to do some other that we got to find a receiver we got to find a corner we got to find the state do we got to get another linebacker we just can't devote. 101112 million dollars cap space to Stephon Gilmore the thing you saw what went for their somebody will overpayment is a nose so he'll get him. Yes somebody's going to pay him pretty close to what he wants if not what he wants him. Now that's that's a thing in in hockey too when you're when you're talking about. You know keeping player acts or why or whatever it's like all somebody's gonna give it to somebody will give him a stupid contract on July 1 but we're not going to be the team is gonna do. Paul this year 8030550. We were talking sabres respond off into the build a little bit in either the tweet about Tyrod Taylor grab a lot you can join us in with this discussion before Rick let's give voice and tickets to see UB.

Look back at buffalo then there was the injury that is really set him back. So now he's playing again but still. Feeling the injury a little bit you know here are young men against when he wonders never got hurt or he's also he's concerned the entry is something that is on his mind so he thought Keating the way he was. He first got himself. Rochester Americans coach them and they're talking about Hudson fashion. Who is well it going through an injury shortened season Rochester we'll talk more about that in the second. Howard Jeremy Brayton Paula here as well we'll continue our discussion with mr. Hamilton terms of the headlines of what's going on the sabres sent three guys back to Rochester because of the bye week Justin Bailey nick Baptiste and Ivan Rodriguez all go to the Amex they're going to play. Tomorrow night at keybank senator. Rochus to elegance Utica. Rochester also has a home game Friday and as Paul mentioned the sabres are back in action Saturday night in Denver against the avalanche. Last night of the NHL the Panthers picked up 21 win over Saint Louis Florida complete their first ever five and oh road trip that also included three straight wins out. On the West Coast Jacob's trouble will sit out two games he's been suspended by the NHL for the high hit on Marc stone. Former sabre Nikita is a Darfur with the rest of the season for Colorado because of an ankle injury. NFL news you can't officially consummate trades but you can agree to them and the dolphins and jags agreed to two of them left tackle Branden Albert go from Miami to Jacksonville. For seventh round pick in the 2018 draft. Tied in Julius Thomas goes from Jacksonville to Miami. For seventh round pick in the 2017. Draft the jags also cut defensive lineman Jared notre. Open up some cap space and wide receiver Victor Cruz's looking for a new home he visited with Carolina Panthers there's no deal at this point. Both of the headlines you next update coming up at 9 o'clock. 'cause I keep forgetting about us Hudson professional we talk about the sabres forward depth. He always goes out of my head I never mentioned him as well and he should be mentioned I think he is going to be. Likely a piece of the puzzle one it's all said Don but I just I just never think of him when I. Sable the sabres have more depth on for the when they have a defense I named names and put it that she never comes out of my mouth like. I almost forget about him and that groin injury I wondered if you wanna put a terror. Which as long as he was out for he was always will be out a couple of weeks and he was up through December almost as to when he's not played like 1520 games this team unless I looked which I think he's the other day sixteen games going three goals and an assist and you just heard. I his coach say that you know he still cannot skate the way he's capable of skating. He had we're talking about Newt Alex mile an earlier Paula has some interesting things to say about knee lender. You know also talked about is the strengths of his game speed passing ability. And but also brought the fact that he's up and down as you might suspect an eighteen year old in his first year he has some good game to back games and good ship some bad ships there are times and I'd like to see him control the puck more. And carrier more and and there it and he just kind of gives it up too quickly which I maybe that's part of the growing pains that a kid's gonna go through and in his. First taste of professional Hough however reasons such a rush to get to eighteen year olds in here and well comic David can do working argued that crap and this is like relaxed Justin Bailey I think is the poster child for. Doing development right take carry eight Bailey Baptiste Rodriguez. I if I looked at their HL games evidently Karrie is at the high end at 127. And Bailey might be the low end at 109 but between the four of them are are Baptiste thing. Before home are between 109127. Of eight shell games. Learn their craft Justin Bailey didn't walk right in and do what he's doing now. You didn't even notice mommy ice most nights except for that first game in Philadelphia and after about it was is a downward trend. He needed to cold developed what this new Zealander can develop we don't need to Russian Mir and ruin them. I still wonder of the sabres Roy Nelson for what they did do me in your he had no business being in buffalo non. He needed that development Rochester he played the first game it weighs. It was awful and any sat here for six games took what do you guys do when you have. Bring just the fault here let him sit here for seven games why why is he dome air indicated these redeveloping sitting here. Not playing in many gets in the game again and it was just so obvious he was overmatched. And now you know now he has been a Rochester except for a little bit yacht called up. I still believe. He is part of the solution night when he plays what you did last year at times too Smart player he's a very Smart player. And I think figure shot his confidence and it is so strange under that they normally don't do that with their young players. But I could see Nelson being on a third pair are on a good team. If he plays the way he did if he gets stronger which he's trying to do and played the whittled almost a Wii like you did last year when he was up here. I think about next season's roster every now and then and Bailey right we expect him to be here the way he's playing now. Much smaller sample size for Baptiste Rodriguez I wasn't thinking about Rodriguez at all now I am at least entertaining the idea that maybe he can bring something to this team. But I'll ask you you can talk about those two guys Paul for next season but also carry day. Because he came up and he here's another guy that brings speed. Something the sabres needed to the forward ranks and another guy that'll it on the go into the corners we'll do some some work to play a little physical for you. We're waiting to see him produce and score into a little bit more offense where you see fit Bailey's going to be here right we know that. Where does carry a fade it's that carry a Baptiste Rodrigue Italy all here next year. Earlier Rios is because I think he would be replacement for Larson burger incidents and I want our bowl for probably be here so. I think that's the type of player he is I soy think he would still be on your depth chart. From as far as Kerry goes I think when you become good leisure fourth liner. I want speed on my fourth line I want speed and guys can play hockey and play the game while. And you you might get a tough guy out of a tough guy that can play the game as well I'm looking a full we don't hype that has some hockey. Skill but also can you know can help you with your players are in trouble carrying has hitting he has speed. It's not looking like. The scoring part of it although he started to give a couple of goals. As he is he started using his speed going to the net. And those types of things but I really think if you have a good team. Your fourth lines to its alignment is energy can skate well. I can play and contribute at times and I think that's worked carrier would fit in when it's also done. What about about pieced what's his role going from Baptiste love list due to because you can hear me rave about him since the day showed up. He scores in every scrimmage like in training camp that he is plays and and you know I saw me believing score Trevor city when two rookie tournament you know navy's he led the team in scoring error. He's that natural goal scorer that let barest talking about the bit. And I've always said. And this is a knock in Justin Bailey I think he's going to be part of the solution also. But I'll bet you when it's all said and done it that she smiled what might wind up with a better initial career than Billy clearly that's that's at the score I think he can be there. I'm just look at the goal is for the other way that's a pretty slick goal right. I don't know carrying scores that whole her you know it's a guy who. Is it who scored goals Paul's life and just has that natural talent that came out there are now is as lender said. Peaking is not normally his thing yeah he's a pure shooter. But and we see that shot to a little bit when he was up here for the beginning of the season. So I think definitely with and with the speed he possesses and what he brings it. But to me. Bailey about tees both have the talent to be on this team and beacon twelve regular contributors on this team. It's up to them how much they are they are going to let that tell Kamal. But I definitely think they both are part of the solution. We'll have a endless here in studio 8030550. Join us speaking of speed OK and again formulating a roster in your head for next season what about and it's. Rigged bid does he fit in the future plans. If you ever becomes Tyler and us again yes. But that doesn't seem a likely yeah I mean I'm I'm I'm wondering if it's gonna turn into Tim Connolly I mean Tim Connolly when he got hit by Schaefer. And we've pushing for in the playoffs. At that time. He was maybe. The best performer in the league at that point. Iowa I don't want to say the best player and only he was playing like the best player but he wouldn't say he was the best player in league but he was playing like it at the time. That's 76 game he took the team on his back and that's why they won that game is because Tim Connolly they believe me he set up or scored a shorthanded goal. I mean he's he's the one that brought sabres back about auto what you Wear this the smaller ski smirk that everybody used to call that was that game. That was all him and it was the next game I believe there where he got hit. Never ever the same player again in never was and tolerances are two major concussions. And I wonder if you'll ever be that player that we saw before that work he was on teams a tanker and scored twenty goals but. It is just he still trying to get his stride back is as far as skating goes from his injury and I don't I don't think there's a market form. Here another team even if you basically get him for almost nothing or you take a chance on a guy that. And it two major concussions in two months appear to be released smaller but ever bought out however you might describe is is like up PTO guy. Putting is that the that the value would be that low. Yeah. Yeah I think so you have a chance to prove yourself but yeah there's nothing guaranteed for the exit yet and I've I think that might via. Somebody might take a chance to be just out there but you can't buy out everybody mean people want the reviled Molson wanna buy out NS. This the only thing that would make and it's a little bit attractive. Is most of his money's argued today. Remember he made like. And 89 million the first year of his deal and errors seven point three year was it was some goofy like that. And if you look at his contract most of it has already been played out it's a fairly low cap number. If in actual dollars you're paying a malls next in the offing boy you know this sounds great for Vegas. Am get my salary cap floor up cap numbers decent don't have to pay him too much take a chance may beacon score may be given some big minutes. And over the years. Offense take a look if you want dual research look at the wake of the expansion draft spur expansion teams. You go back to the islanders in the flames and everything. Most of the guys taken expansion draft never play for that team. If you if you look at it. A lot of the guys they take are for other reasons now back then you can do the wink wink deals. Oh it will give you this if you won't take this guy you know that type of thing you know and you wind up with guys you really don't want another war would bill me you'll never use. And then those types of things now it's a new age we haven't had an expansion draft along time maybe things will be different this time. But history tells us that a lot of the guys an expansion draft were chosen for other reasons and in this case the original salary cap back then and now it's salary cap reasons so. It'll be interest in to see you want what figures does. And this is gonna make three point six. For the next two seasons. His captain is the next four or that was what this guy Saddam or the first and what do you make a 53 in the know are your own I don't know seven point three all the sellers legacy get a two million dollar signing up for the base estimate three point six seats in the next two years. Cap hit four point six each of the next few years it was a bonus I think they were they structured or was he was making seven got to read as writers here that's right that's what it was structured okay it says because it says here at spot track five million dollar signing bonus. And it breaks it down and payments of 2000002000000 and one million in the last three years over three years now but there there was oppose the first three years the sign yes. Yet so we get and others may get more of that this year so the bulk of that money is Ari on out southern imperfect candidate for Las Vegas. How many favor will make us do I think if George McPhee is Smart he does a lot of favors. And he takes a lot of guys like NS or maybe even Bogosian someone like that and says you give me a second round pick I'll take that guy and just stockpiles. And gets 72. Round picks in May be forced out of the deal he can take bad contracts. It you wanna build your farm system go to build your team is Betsy candidate of any chance of winning right away no chance committed to save us. About Bogosian. I don't know this I have not heard worry talk about him nor have I ask him about him. I don't think Murray is any interest in letting Bogosian bill and non these key should. It's getting there. If we if you if there's a trade deal while there or something like that but. I can almost guarantee almost because I haven't asked him he has no interest at all losing him in the expansion apple gone can make it there but I think about. Bogosian wanna be you know watching on us Thursday or Saturday and Paul he obviously has if you if you were go to a calm mind skate and shoot into all that stuff. Super impressive and why he can skate well he doesn't process the game fast enough. That's when it comes down to the game just moved too fast for him when the puck comes to one he doesn't know the elect. You know that split second. That's the whole thing about him everything skill talent it's all there just doesn't happen fast enough. How often do you acres is falls in this category two do you see a guy score role in May react as the guy as the as the shot is leaving the stick. Instead of reacting the split second before the shot is taken or the pass gets there. Their reacting as the shots going in is leaving their Staten and that's exactly what Germany's talking about. And it also gets back to. Why don't players process what their coach is telling them. And they tell us after the game the coach said or told us for an hour in the morning we're should play like this we've played the exact opposite. I can't begin to tell you how many poles into sugar forfeit that. Why why why is the coach laying out a plan. And you guys can't play it or refuse to play or why why why isn't it B kerik being carried out. Jerry may have a point right there on why the camp process. 8030550. Join us 888550. To five to do we get back pulse the rap for another segment. We'll talk about your true project tackle in the development and and went Paula scene from. Mister eichel this season eagle 30550 join us 888550 to 550 here on WGR. Think part of the pastor's class about meeting and bought last season was learned. But most papers system. And to basically used the same language that Dan and his staff you've. So we're able to do that with our players here and and you know we try to practice the same ways they do. Stanley and bear became a power on the instigators yesterday it's one thing Howard does this instigate fights all the time because. I could find an on demand W chaired by fits and I'm conscious about that falls the is the heat on Dan miles look completely cooled. Because that little wind streak all right idling its core I look I don't think anything's happening this week all right but. And I and I still think there'll be a valuation at the end of the year hub of the whole year. And how they play from here until we and into the season will be a big part of that a valuation. I think they just need to see a few things they need to see improvement they need to see that damn miles this message is getting through to his players. I think they need to see that they know what he teaches arm. You do they do the work. I mean the coaches are lazy and they're not there it's not Rex Ryan in here and what he was doing it's it's if they put the work and they know the game. But can they get it across to their players. So their players are playing the game that they're teaching then that's what I think a lot of this is and was and it will be. And I think they'll be a lot of the evaluation. You know as as we were you know way if you talk in a parole or mayor whatever may be. Went as meat we move forward Kenny is this thing this staff. This is the coach that can get us to where we want to be have we seen enough improvement this year. You know take the factors of that and we've seen enough improvement in our young players are they developing. When their up here pose a lot of questions that they'll be thinking about and asking and talk and it. Have been talking about it will be talking about. All Jack cycle. Your Q. What kind of development. How are you seeing him elevate his game assuming arcing and well they're giving him more responsibility. He plays usually the last. Twenty seconds or less of the penalty kill. And he's he's cost me a few times he's also had a couple scoring chances where he is produced you know here we will go the other way. You needed to pick your superstar needs to be on the ice in all situations most of the mark. The weather's Crosby or those types of things of a they recognize that and they're starting to give him more responsibility now are were gonna start inching him into the penalty kill where he a van Chile will become a regular penalty killer. You know people get all upset about his defense of players sometimes and it cost them a goal. That's part of the growing process. He'll learn from that you don't take him out of that situation and not let him be in that situation. Like I've had some people suggest. That's not the way to do it. He is going to be on the ice a lot he is going to receive a lot of ice time. He needs to learn those mistakes that he makes. And as a young player that's part of playing 181920. Year old Nagle can they are going to be making some mistakes that are gonna cost you goals. He has done that. Don't get upset about just look at. OK but he's gonna learn from that he's that he's not stupid he is a Smart person. He held learn from those things he wants to do better when he talked about after Lennar and all that kind of stuff and he talked that day to. One of the things he talked about was I need to be better in my own zone I need to have if if they if I'm gonna make a difference. I have to be better. All aspects of the ice and I think he is getting better I'll give you one play that I saw the other day. He made a horrendous pass to panic. He was in the in the offensive zone he just short the slot the oil once and there was panic and panic took off the other way Jeff what stand in the corner. Jack. It's it's how you play without the puck in he caught panic and lifted his stick and stole the puck back. Right when about he was gonna shoot and he was way behind him but he it's he was. Determined. I've made this mistake. I'm gonna go get the puck back that's that any tract it. Not only did he get the puck back he took off the other way of panic wanna taking a penalty on him so both of the types of things that were I see improvement. His his play with out of pocket what is he going to do to go get it back well and I think about it this discussion because we do we get. We get people who get upset about d.s own issues with Jack cycle low is going to be upset with a softens and I'll get that many though I know but but but the coach gets upset and Paul does that make it happen I think the coach understands that to what he say to you guys now he's gonna turn the puck over way right because we want him carry the puck. If he carried enough. You're eventually gonna turn it over I guess my point is there's there's it's not a lack of one Q it's just. It's his second year in the NHL you're gonna learn things about. That are just gonna come with time as a young player develops as opposed to he just has no desire to back check into anything defense yet in their coaches are worried about his defenses all play growing up even probably in college. But in the NHL. On and I will say unfortunately that's where the league is a ball a evolves. I mean defensive zone play is the first thing they talk to you about it then. Good defensive zone play is gonna lead to good offenses all played unfortunate that's what the league is. In my in my LC deteriorated too but that's the way it is that's what whether we like it or not. That's the NHL a mass with good players have to play. Listen thanks to come an end. For a go I wanna give you one thing that I've been after parting to research in reaching out to sources and everything about the Attica is a quarter crack. So I call it that your payment Mike twittered in about six or Molson. As like wood in Vegas take Molson. And pointing out a family connection between George McPhee and Matt Molson which. I've been trying to track down first time effort to mention and the story is that Molson is wife. George McPhee is her godfather. And that that Molson have a child named George. That at least according to. It's believed that the deck could be of there's a connection that there's a family relation between Mick fee and Molson and in and his wife I would think that. If you're doing the Molson is a favor you've taken in the weeks since they stripped off I I I am trying to confirm if this is true and the relation is true but either way. Play if you're looking for a penal Molson they'll take him. I think you can't say. I don't wanna move my family to Las Vegas to play for about hockey team right before my ultimate retirement eventually you know I checked kids right now yes I can I and I hope George McPhee better than. If if that's how he plays the game tonight fire. Hey that's not the way GM should be should be looking at things he needs to be looking at things what's best for his team if you got up doing a favor fur for our family member what he did at the if he did the hole I'll take Matt Olson up your hands but you've got to give me a draft pick like your can be a futures thing like all right and like you said. It happens and expansion draft sure hey take Molson are right Tim Tom taken Molson you're gonna do this for me and you can you can and after that happened just not doing this because his wife is you know I'm the god brought to his wife went up and is people. Or are kicking around two Ebert I'm about expansion draft Blake came in those types things don't forget Cain is a hockey tree. Hockey trades happen usually a month or last around the draft hockey too literally made for a month or less during the whole season. And mom I think the trading deadline is more going to be bit about the expansion draft. Rentals. That are always says the new expansion draft as can be part of it to his players need to give their rosters set for the expansion draft. I'm not saying you never see a hockey trade around the trade deadline. But it's rare so I would think if there is that there isn't a vendor came type of betrayed. That is more of a hockey trade that would happen more closer to the draft then march 1. Thanks come in and appreciated. Relates let's get to headlines for go to break sabres have said Justin Daly. Nicholas the Baptiste Evan Rodriguez to Rochester they can all play for the hammocks tomorrow night when Rochester plays in buffalo at key banks that are against Utica. Bet there's one last night two to one got a goal of about five seconds left two game suspension for Jacob true buffer is high here to mark stone and the big story which we should talk about when to back in Rappaport now reporting. But the bills are more likely than not. To pick up the Tyrod Taylor Hicks I don't know to have. T he tale rather than doesn't say pick of the extension but more likely than not. Which reminds me of the flight gate of course is the patriots were more likely than not to have done something wrong so Taylor could be returning we'll get to that wondered turn it. Karen W each year.
