Credit the situation next season where all of a sudden conditions change appear to high priced players all of sudden fall into your lap when Dyer talking about it. Recently you might you deal him for diminished package of players and after that first what you could've gotten for a bit here forward it. Scenario with the thing you know fingers flew put faith how the fees for the last couple years you walk away for enough. That's strictly shift from Yahoo! Sports. That result was the guys in the afternoon yesterday if you miss the interview. It's available on demand audio WGR 550 dot com we had to trade yesterday checkered from the blues to the gaps. Alex burrows to Ottawa. Brian Boyle to Toronto. And we're still weigh in on what's emerged gonna do and we're gonna talk about that with John Shattuck import weather coverage tomorrow on here with you in the morning yes sir and then I'm on with pulled out in the afternoon of course investigators contended and if this freaking league managers did not have a trade while I'm on all eight our office that's why you work in the afternoon if you wanna actually haven't traded talk about I do I do it like the sabres to make a trade right around with the re like posted late this least thirty and make it controversial this is the guy who who's got the pole. This let me get John Shannon on the shelves right last time we asked John to get something done it got done right make David and a lot and Matthews on and on TV yeah so John if you can work out a trade preferably involving the sabres between six and 10 AM tomorrow that would be arts. Now that similarly pertaining. I'm a little early for timber I don't know if it didn't even piracy copies of course more. They say they are you sure that's not late I mean there's the times exam can relate if you're up late enough. Maybe he's burning the Midnight Oil. Now you probably evident as he IT I think it was one of those guys you like to Christina. And I think he'd like to 59 the I expect the sabres to do something I'm not sure how much I don't think they're gonna. They're not really trying to alternatives that are in their long range and and in the end I guess it doesn't come down to whether they decided McCain or not right. I wanna ask you about that but but we you know we're fairly certain that the parts like cool cop Franzen. Even Gionta would move but friends are cool cop for sure. Joseph what do you get from him could could could you get asked a second rounder could could you get up first rounder for crude copper is that she you know smoke and something. What do you look at a price is Howard. Green curry or me now. Of course you you need to route which you'd hear of that trade between Washington. But at the same time. It it really all depends on college you're able to create a little bit of leverage the Republican Christians there in cool cop. As that extra defense and I mean we know that Calgary is looking for an extra distance and still. That they don't that they have enough depth. Who else does note there that might be able to tip might be able to like that this deal over here. And you better sweeten the pot and that that's really what it's all about I mean I think that's exactly what happened last night. Saint Louis and Washington where. Where. We're Doug Armstrong was convinced I'd convince Brian McCollum that. The Pittsburgh right Ian Maclean and they're Korea. You get these little more from from the caps were recovered Jack Kirk. Also work here John I think in I'd I would say that we don't always give this one it's worth is that. In a different GMs are gonna have different opinions of different players so our I think all the time the I think honest I think about this with the Taylor Hall trade more than any like not to bring that one up but. You know what when Larson moves in that trade every fan base Russians at how come we couldn't give up our. You know in certain defense and here it's because Edmonton had an opinion of Larsen that other GMs apparently didn't so. You know on deadline day if you're trying to move Demetric oh look off what it takes is someone to think he's really good and really worth it. That's right and end and then you have to look I mean that's why I mean I I think there may be no more polarizing player on that list that event. Because there are people that. Still covet this guy still remember what it was like in junior hockey or that first year in Atlanta. And there are others say we're not gonna touch sold so well from that perspective. That will create some libertarian that you put Evander Kane in the right environment in this leaked. It down the stretch what a difference maker he could make them eat you'd you'd like to think that the Montreal in your. Not to suggest similar to reveal what but we'd like to beat the Montreal Canadians in dire need of a goal scorer would look at and the game. Mean that to me he's he would be a better option for them and not ashamed. From Colorado cool Joseph sack quantum armour went. What would the price be what if it's Tim Murray says Mikhail circuit chips what does Montreal site. Not its. Not a chance he was I taken. Just after they they and you land they asked version about him the other day somebody did and I I remember the quote Johnny basically said you know. He didn't say he didn't answer is that guys some guys are untraceable and some instead circuit Jaffe said you guys are Smart to figure it out there. But would they have another they have another defenseman played in the what you ignored jewels that. Who has been a little slow to develop that is that. Could be an elite player as well so far from that perspective. There there might be something you know and I I look around the league you have to wonder what she's. Are in bigger trouble what teams need to do something to try to reinforce where they are understanding. And I put Montreal on the top that let. John when you mention a vendor came in some GMs would would want him in some would think I I can't do it. Forest where I think Tim Murray stands on him right now I mean this is a player that obviously coveted but he might have his reservations about giving him another contract and the reason we talk about him so much is because of nothing more than the fact that the contract is a thing why are they gonna commit to him. After next year. Well and at that and and I did you blog Billick didn't sit with Turkoglu led timber and talk about it. Because the media is there anybody in this league with a much talent that demand McCain there are anymore. And then you might have seen a bit of an eye out kind this year or in case that focused. He you know leaps forward and and that there are always managers out there that would say OK we like. Then you have to yet it great your accurately but you're gonna have to go and decide over the next few years your arms. Or your budget. Where your where your dollars are allocated we got it happening in the Tampa Bay what. Everything that went on the air this week with what Ben Bishop the Dallas is being accurate was not gonna have enough money. Forbidden bishop after he signed all of this kid is cute that mr. Pittman who could lose one and section 27 or not. That's what that's what the cap Eric does and that's what these long term people do that keeps. John shadow and dishonor AT&T hotline from sports that John one other thing on Cain if if there if Tim Berry decided he wanted to move Evander Kane. What does it matter in terms of value and what you get back and his team as a crying need for top four defenseman. Would it matter whether it was done now would it be easier of the same more. As opposed to the summer in OK here's sometimes team's sake. I'm making a playoff run I'd love to get a game but I'm not given up something of value right now who would it matter when it was done. Up from a Saber perspective no an attack I would suggest it would be here. Support him to do it in the summertime or work in all around the graft and Chicago. I think that and I think that that's what's gonna happen as well what Joe Sakic can Matvichuk. I think it does feel so complex and so bay. That he's gonna have to wait to do so it wouldn't surprise me that McCain doesn't move. And they do wait until around the draft but to me that's that's something that came in after the. You mentioned do shame what happens Atlanta Scott. Well I mean you can't do it all the young. He can't get rid of all your core guys. I I think in the end like this dog days and in reading what what what has happened in in Colorado. Is Joseph stack and made a choice between nick and McKinnon met. And I that you like to McCann an upside much more. And the last thing on asking about his Thomas back right he's gonna move by the deadline would mean. I expect so I expect that any problem will be will we might be here in a ball bad it was my beater and watched it and we might be irritable and yet. In Detroit getting rid of you know right now senator. Centers are getting something in this league in the two at the deadline. Kenny Holland has two guys that I don't think he thinks they're long term solutions for the red wings. So all. Those three guys sitting in that. I like a one last thing GM meetings coming up in Boca and yeah I I like to talk to about the stuff we like to have fun. Talking about you know maybe that actually be creative and do some things to help this league do you expect an I know the gym for told. Bring ideas to the table when we meet in March would you expect anything significant to come out of this. Who won that I think that we don't think significant that gonna say this litigants don't we wait. And that is they're gonna they're gonna probably recommend a change in the offside rule. And created the plane likely see at the goal line or collectively and I felt so that we don't have all these silly off sider views about whether the skate would let it. It in the air right. They're not gonna get rid of the outside challenged a half. They might tweak the off site talented and not let it. OK now we gold Kilmeny golden reversed and that tells you that at and and its millions of dollars would bolster reversed if it happened that vehicle retired. Okay. John thank you very much and you got a busy day coming up tomorrow and probably today for that matter we appreciate you giving us some time. John Shannon from sports that joining us on our AT&T hotline. It didn't wanna mention. A rival but I was just looking at the TS and trade date list yes and it's funny great mention this earlier Dmitry cook top is now all the way up to three overall. He's the number one defenseman on their trade bait list. That it by the way is second overall behind Matt you sharing in the chain one panic too cool call three there's a guy in the top ten. I'm just gonna point out I think people will laugh. Weight who would it be. Is that sabres tied into this guy. Who would be funny Steve ought. Nobody probably on the list somewhere will be funny an XT bout was down in like the thirty's you're kind independent I'm writing honestly about 37 Ryan Miller. Ryan Miller. Is an ECB's on the list actually you know was on the list. You mention it earlier Drew Stafford who's doubling up your staff is listed at sixteen. But here you know it isn't former sabre who is listed eighth Ryan Miller is not on the list Jonas and drop is on the list at 36. Boy look at Michael noise berth is on the list yards lob a lock is on the list. Install former sabres. A guy a Ford. Who just scored a goal against the sabres over the weekend. In Colorado. And remember who Kelberg record of rhetoric or yogurt drink a listed as the number eight guy. On the TS and top ten right behind. He's land the Scott is six Anthony declare. Former first round pick I think rightly seven and then Greg Greco Beckel really shot among the left and it. I hi I am a hockey dot I I think in my wanna ask if I'm the only one. When I don't have anything for you start I got got some that he got a nominee and I'm not the only one you're gonna see this guy's name I gotta go gotta tell it like Elena it's not great but aren't going but still with them. You GR Sports Radio fight fifty presents. As our new hit segments in my view 1 am I the only one the signal was made for you might yield almost every strawberry there's got to be somebody else who doesn't know that this is the mining Elena doesn't know bad lip reading is the I've got off come preloaded on the things we needed a segment called in my the only lawyer right tonight WG ER Sports Radio the final fifty. I. Am I the only one that thinks Shane Doan needs to shoddy. It's matter he's calling out like. Coyotes management all you never like to see this you never like you know dole and unhappy with pedaling off parts. The pig but I think you know you're going used your life you if you could have gotten out of there you hear it a few years. In times right because teams would have won them you signed as a free agent there he turned out more money to go other places. They did you are not as a lifelong. Arizona coyote. People everybody else all I think you've I thought you played with in Winnipeg Winnipeg Ers did the last year OK first year you have been with that. Moribund. No ownership no fans. No future failed tank. That's the failed tank franchise. Forever. And it's signed with that guy for being there by choice for so long. You know what so I think you actually win because I bet you would be could you bring up Shane Doan around the league. And people talk about Ali's great white hair guy Hariri he's a leader. You know you gotta feel sorry for Shane dull the port guys there in Arizona he's giving it is all I think you actually would be the only one he chose to stay there. This is John Tavares in ten years with the islanders in their horrible ownership and building situation we elect yours is really important that once again we're selling off again and islanders have turned it around and the coyotes have had a couple of decent seasons in the air but. I'm not trying to get on don't entirely. But like you see him complain about the direction of the coyotes and you think. You've been there since tag. So yeah burial might do a big chain known doesn't really have a over here and he would have side and try to think I wanted to pull up the recently last night beside right they would sign along our titles and decide to one year contract this past year yeah. He's that your FAG's. If you FA after this season and he might be traced lies on the trade industries a rental does he have a notre trying to physique is given no trade in not accept the trade somewhere and then also complain about the fact that no. And a fifth but he site most recently did sign a one year contract. For the 201617. Seasons we could've gotten out after last season you know walked away. And I guess I would assume at some point if shamed they would have gotten calls about chain down. And they were approaching don't be whether he had no traitor not stay patient and just you know regain some calls. Do you want us to trade you. Misery as a reaction to the Hansel trade. Well that's what we're picked everybody saw coming or don't expect it's hard to understand and what isn't was your first day in Arizona. I mean c'mon. That's a good one. You how one yeah but it's not as good as yours. Okay. Make fun of mine okay. Played about Martin's hands of quoting on Jane don't quote he was like a second father to me he's been helping me since day one play out. He's been there Intersil pockets older than dirt for goodness sakes you know. Among the only one who. It's gonna into a mets' spring training and is actually thinking count or goes she Tim Tebow playing the game Booth. We think fellas I'd I'd I didn't think about this at all until he showed up for his press coverage yesterday. I'm going to couple games down there in March I'll be at port saint Lucie are asking you can see my the only one who would go to ports in this can say. We gotta go see people playing I would say based on the fact that he's on television. No no cut OK the battlefield to whom I mean sports senator and today met today not just sports itself how. While I help how big gun training document Tebow the big guns right this is like the guys you and abuse Brady before the Super Bowl. So I just thought you know we're down there anyway. You can see the minor league fields from where the Mets play. I don't know if they're open I I assume chances go up and watch the games. But he must play and actually thought edge of the what is that we wander over there and she would Tim Tebow looks like in baseball you'd just isn't. You know it's maybe not insanity but you know perhaps and I took it and that it slightly insane not quite insanity got paid to see that. I wouldn't pay to see Tebow play but if it's for free actually did think what if they put people in like the Mets lineup that day. I don't think you gonna do then Nick Price dispute play with a minor league teams so. We'll see how much and articles. About Arizona but like a quick thing on the coyotes. As bad as that game was the sabres losing to the coyotes. Through the first two periods. You really had a feel for their their fans I mean here's Jack cycle skating all from. You know it's like that's the guy that if we have lost two more games. We would have him this. But we don't think that much they think about it they don't I'm sure I got back don't you know think they they got their tank I was on one of the radio stations and explain to them why they should root against their team yet. And they didn't know Lewis is guys like. I know you think about no ahead SNB of course of course and I know sever fans will bring the economy David hey happy anniversary. Three years ago today. Ryan Miller trade moved very great 12014. It's also the anniversary of Sidney Crosby scoring on him on him in the Olympics. The golden ball every twenty S and is the mental game yeah every twentieth when he sent. It's also. Well thanks and that says okay that that killed my vote. The Miller trade was Deborah tornado was a Friday night right I think is I guess I was leaving for Florida the next morning I was on vacation. Bryant Miller Steve got in our slot for yards a hawk Chris Stewart William Carey and 20151. Round pick and a conditional 20163. Round deal third round pick in the deal. And then they trade a lot of those pieces for other peace clock right a lot of Wear identical one word minutes. Ago Minnesota boy I really can't even remember the Montreal. And like that this is the thing about Murray. He's been here for a long time. And yet. That's why when we're talking about McCain trade. But Montreal definitely take him all right for sort of Jeff what are known and oh well that's why one. I want Mickell search of the again the sabres have a chance to pick and they didn't instead they took Alex knee Lander. And at the time and I was on with stock Craig an injury to draft and they were both kind of upset and said. Where's the defensive depth we need defensive depth and and the only reason I was actually okay with that is because of the cool look off trade other no. You know they have the appear to have picked up a guy they plan to put their top four I would imagine they'll resigning him. So you know they're not as bearing on the back end as you think there are a vocal content work out that way. And now now you're there and I'm very now you're struggling to find inserted should have he's played a little bit for them Mickell circuit chip and I know the sabres did like him. They just ultimately went with new Lander and instead. But circuit Jeb is a top flight prospect taken right one pick after the any lender picked he uniter birthday bro is well let's update it's very. You know there's if there's a bond. The smile on their prospects game we would've seen it didn't we see him playing turner we was up the front it was different year only what the prospects game and we saw. That there was a junior was Otis overall of the advocate for the flyers we saw natural rough prog rock yes I liked him. He's fast. Maybe it wasn't yeah you're right private for over I was I might add I'm confusing searcher may be watch him in junior Ivan rover off was 97. So he's older he was drafted a premier. That was that we saw Lawson crops in that game too right arcing and about that the other night when their plan net. What Arizona crosses with Arizona the puck the flyers I don't know where they stand on you know maybe pro broad and cost despair. I did a tweet earlier today like. How come you guys bring up every day trading came for defenseman. I'm gonna do it every day until he's either signed or traded for a defenseman and as long as is contract sits as it is. I gotta find something a soft of the rumor way back when is like months ago we brought up on the show cane for DOS despair the wanna jump ahead you know I think the flyers would be nuts to due process there was great than last year maybe sets and soft or struggles but that's a but the the term you're gonna hear a lot in in the trade deadline is cost control. That's what McCain is not Cain is not cost control so you're trying to trade him to Montreal. You'd say on these players. What's wrong with search effort came that we don't know gonna keep group we don't know how long it's going to be. We can win another deal is gonna sign after this he's not cost controls were as. All these guys and their RFE deals you know what they're gonna make you control they're gonna make for a long time it's it's the true asset is the cost controlled player. And Cain is not that so that does knock down his value. Quite a bit 8030550. Join us the NHL trade deadline. If you forgot is tomorrow at three. We have continuing coverage over here on WGR. That would continue all day tomorrow. It's presented by value homes while most of the day present about value home center shopped quick shop easy shot value. Also brought you by the Riviera theatre set the stage with the historic Riviera theatre by holiday and leisure brink's home to the dipping dots. All ages fifteen and under league you can sign up now for that. And by Lowe seemed NG workers' compensation and personal injury attorneys working hard for hard working western New Yorkers. One of the most popular bills ever. Must keep playing football. And then do the logical thing we'll talk about that in a moment and WH ER. Strong strong sense that. You know that they have a very. Special teams and they work hard didn't know some of the guys on the team with the USA program. Competing in some of those guys it's known and they have a very strong competitive spirit so I look forward to join inspectors there. Now from the coach is unknown. You know especially Jim accorsi is then great supporter through friends. He really. Cares about his players are allowed me a chance to develop. I can make it yours Sosa's there's two questions. Ryan Miller when he was traded for the from the sabres it's the three year anniversary or just looking up the dates do because. Right after that. Right the sabres and Pat LaFontaine putt parting ways like it was all going down within a few days stretch Miller's traded on that Friday. And then. I was off that week and I think right somewhere in that week. Maybe it's. Monday Tuesday something I think that's when all the funds and stuff went down and he was gone too. Ryan Miller in the blues that here with that there's before the it was that was that they finished the saint Louis blues did that season. As the quote we police standing alone. As the fourth best team in the league and they played the seventh best team in league in the opening round of the playoffs wasn't there like today. We had a root for Vancouver to make it to what the conference finals. Something with that there was Saint Louis I mean the result is a one way finals Anaheim earlier rooting for Anaheim because of maybe Christa werder odd jobs again ushered him again and again O'Meara let me get the Miller had to make it to around three dampened sentiment and Miller with that team the blues. They were they finished the 111 points. They were a plus 57 on goal differential the best. In the league tide of Anaheim for the best in the league gold differential. I'm sorry second best Boston was number one and first round match at Chicago because you know rivalries and the lost transcript series to the team that deserved to who. Better known to little better there than they deserve to avoid Chicago right but. Yet you'll Gary Bettman says the divisional format they have for the playoffs is great that. If you go to the best teams anyway you know the game's never and that could be like at the end of the NCAA pitted one against the two seed in the opening round and fifteen against the sixteen instead and whenever you gotta go through number one anyway. No you don't not really not a real tournament. Inning you victim to an upset also while. That's at did tell us sixteen you tell sets up a bracket where number two plays number three in the opening round and number eleven plays number twelve yeah not. That's sixteen vs one sure the occasional two verses fifteen. But it just doesn't it's games ever been better maybe. There where me and say I was gonna say nick maybe some of their bring up a GM meetings. But that doesn't side there's any. Resistance to order any kind of impetus for discussion right now arrangement in the Eastern Conference there'll be an eighteen tournament the juicy will play the three seed in the first round. Meanwhile this exceed the seven Siegel also play in the first round. Hey good news though the NHL's gonna change the rule on off sides you're skate can be up in the air they're gonna make it look like the plane of the goal big changes so. There you go out you don't have to stretcher back skate out anymore you can have it up in the air and still be on side. Oh ye of little faith with the National Hockey League. By the way you mentioned this earlier write about borrows it looks like it's official now he gets a two year extension well you know ten million dollars. And ten teams that that he cannot be traded to. Now I'd seen some law TS a refund the guy on Twitter because he had written this that basically what Ottawa is doing is loading up to convince. Carlson stay. Carlson will be an unrestricted free agent. July 1 when he team Boca and they can't negotiate and negotiate with a yet yeah but. The idea here being that. Think they make this trade they're gonna try and show we not only are we unit were committing to a good players long term. I was in the same period it may need it to her. Their four points behind first place Ottawa in the two games in hand are excuse me first place Montreal. And if two games in hand. On the Canadian so there and it that's a nice so nice guy they pick up there you know it gives you some offense. Wait wait. We'll sand paper. You're right guys got a little edge to him you know he's a past he's a pain in the neck guilt in yap a draw some penalties so I thought that was a nice pick up for Ottawa. You think that's human Robin Lehner fight next year well Hershey's he's alternate and Burroughs he's he's going to be 36 on the playoffs start this whole fruit and then they signed into expense sold for a two year extension it is that surprised me a little bit but. Venerate and go for it instead of you know your your prospect yes and the prospect they gave away John Colin I think his name. He's both be good but that's that's not a it was John to honor I know it's dollar gadget Jonathan down to Donna is he related to all. Mean might. I I think he might be was I thought I read something about. Indy related double he has been to solve very guzzle Stalin's son wire for peace in nineteen years old. So that's that's a good prospect doesn't sound like. From what I read this morning it doesn't sound like the prospect the the blues got in the capsule was anything to write home about. I met him Kevin checker will play tonight for Washington to please and in the lineup and play in New Yorkers against the Rangers doesn't have to learn the system. Hey Kevin take blocked off by its shoot score skate the guy and good. Hey quick note from the world of football wanna mention this because. We're to have power of the most popular guys ever buffalo uniform for Jackson still wants to play football. He this is that he get an interview in the soon landed news she was at the season opener for the Sioux City bandits. Not to be confused with the was it this. It's what was the suicides soft soft suicide saucy saw cease when you're here for the what is that the queen city roller girls how to game the other they were giving write tickets they're playing against the suicide softies. Parent I did nothing to do and I just wanted to just maybe think about it. Anyway he said he wants trying to play again he's open he's gonna spend an extra instruments trying to get out a roster. It ended training camp with somebody this year because you would like to play. If it doesn't work out he'll say had ten years I enjoyed every minute of it and they asked about retiring as a bill. He said quote it's automatic. It have to be as a Buffalo Bill the fan base stuck (%expletive) stuck. Behind me the most they still talk to me now. Bills mafia is to move is who has made me who I am today I loved playing for those guys. He what would like son one day contract and retire as a buffalo if you're going to have me I definitely would do that. I don't think the be any debate I think they would definitely have you he's got no hard feelings about how it ended. Yet some nice things about the team this year and and he said he thinks tyrant can be a good quarterback. But I'm not sure that it will be able to hook on May be somebody has some injuries at the spot you can bring in Fred. For some insurance and and a handful of carries the but it doesn't work out it's a no brainer just. Pick the game picked the date when you bring him back and let him retire as a Buffalo Bill too much to the adulation of the adoring crowd at Ralph Wilson Stadium. I needle 30550 to join us 888550.

Designated that area here in the building in May be you know around 8815 neck and go close my eyes for a few minutes every day. Naps are great I used to make fun of them but man I'm telling you I think inept every day it's the the the most wonderful thing in the world. What else that we teeth how could not Craig button former NHL general manager who works for GM said. Enough. Always comes up with his bucket list you know as as we get ready for draft time he always comes up a list of the top prospects while he was on the infant gators. He was talking about one of these sabres recent top picks actually Alex need lender came up near record but I'd say about it. I don't think gallantly latter I'd remind you so much a jolt of he can play left blank right wing cattle point on the power play he can surely make plays competitive edge Smart I guess he saw anything out Saturday ladders game picture. Scream it's important important player. And I think don't say he listed him as one of the top he did a list the other day of the top players top prospects. Outside of the NHL. And the Lander is pretty high up on the list I believe. Rasmussen asked Lynn was on the list as well little further down the knee lender that would be Craig button from a TS and so. You hander Jeremy were talking earlier about grueling would you expect goalie to be here or with the sabres Judah. Let's not rush guys let's let him go under Rochester. What do you think about a mile an hour at least to start the seasonal Murray talked about a like he's going to be here next year right lest I would not last time the one of the one of the times he joined my trouble while he sure some of what you expect to be here. That's part of part of the pressure on Murray comes down to pay our our our your draft picks Redick is if they're not you gotta get some guys here you've got to. Finish getting your dad wait and pick up what to blue liners. It and now likely you what what I need for words do they mean. Well depends removing came. I wouldn't expect them to in the next two days there is a good point to be made that. Think is is isn't his value did drop in the summer or is it gonna drop. In. Next year's season during the trade deadline as you're gonna go for it but it might be you might have more teams willing to trade for him in the summer you might have you wider field. You money you have more of a hockey trade there yeah. By. Move that could drop in Italy it is big gamble if you go into next season. You have to hope that he continues playing at the level and again has no issues while the season's going on to be a bit more to gamble killed on there's an aim to watch for today. The Leno. So much about nick. Watch for markets believe again today calls he's an RFA. He's making 2.2. You know.

That you go home today you love life you can house mainly wet and you just think. I could just be told well tomorrow there's your easily tradable and I easily tradable I'm moving to a Calgary yet just bank. No warning shock of shocks like Michael doesn't expect a call K it's it's it's demo hates him what's up you're traded at countering. Ball and you might not have been planning to trade him but someone called in thought death. All right that's a good idea forwards that are under contract for next year or Riley a also came Molson and it's. Michael's scent Michael Reinhart the Lauria a Bailey. Kerry kept those your forwards defenseman under contract wrist the line in Bogosian Georgia's McCabe and fall. So you're adding at least two defenseman cure hopefully three because George's is not here in your forwards kind of depend on daily that teased. Me lender. My miss they've it may be Rodriguez. In ovals I got of those guys all here now I've got ten guys under contract Rodriguez sure bring him back he's in our effect. Larsen what happens with Larson and her relatives that are effective government in gear and this is a perfect example. Somebody want him yeah I lets us know she yeah our FA cost controlled asset. That a team that wants a two way forward yet to add to their playoff lineup I would plan on Larson coming back next year. And say. Can I get depth gonna get defense for cure for instance it. Glad Britain. On Scott powers from the athletic in Chicago writes appease saying that the Blackhawks are looking to trade a couple of their prospects going into the trade deadline. You mentioned it's doable mark McNeill is one. Not really interest that the other guy bill defenseman defenseman or right handed shot defenseman 22 years old to be restricted free agent the end of the year Billy polka. All we could do a lot with polka path I would trade for just for the name but they know they mentioned that they got. Dirk did they get Thomas got. Mr. Clinton would get yes they trade for Thomas he could because the job. A few weeks ago they were saying. That the hawks were really pushing hard for wing but they have tons of prospects in terms of defense I know Anaheim's chock full of them. But Chicago was another team that they were saying.
