I know bulldogs joined hope now with some second graders and I've played connect four with a second grader who beat me. I feel like a second grader and an adult is a good matchup in connection or. And that's why it's obviously an outdated because I lost it. You're 72 Mike show this kid not beat a one time that we played and it wasn't like it was just sitting there holding staring at the board right. I mean there's no excuse though it. There's no excuse for losing to a seven year old with an act of war and a Bulldog he every three different ways at the end and twice. He missed. The winning play now and then the third time he had another like three turns in a row yet winning play. And like so how jobs that for me. I'll read your job is it reconnect for three match points are meant for. He had three match points Africans might show and a Bulldog the second time Mike. And I'm surprised you didn't see that that's or give it to them and then I make my play him like he's going to be one. I didn't see that at all on WG ER. For Sports Radio 550. I don't gonna. Very very slippery situation and just alters that six people like Brett writers here like two days. A lot of hockey and football. This vote counterfeit knock off an explorer. To easily. Connect for open play. Night after it hotly contested. Or age. Matches going in my living room that's a quarter and a four ish like it's. Out of the box that discounts that are another call for a row. It's remarkably similar to connect for so it's all the rules. Out. Intuitively knew how to play the game all of your expensive and it works previously asked her. Frequent the bar it's no. With an pool table but it was little. Like the this is the elsewhere struggle with that once I pocket you know it's kind of bull with. Our our game or row. By the easel for two boxer which were. To. The middle. The all that nearly as satisfying full solid checker dropped from the do that netted the game that is yes it's the beauty of it at the trigger to release the ball just sits on the road. The economic well. It's it's garbage. But the person that actually does alters strategy we know that the two columns are going to be pain. So doubts I try to beat four year old. Without using those well. Listening right now it's gonna go out of the middle. Jump in there would be nothing away. But it's. Luckily that. All that well that was well I mean that it was going to be that the sabres record I've heard of but the good tech for not golf clubs prompted the big man will be news. The sabres are required let's go to out sure. These I. That he's a he's a defenseman. From the Rangers. Finger quotes played in my article a couple of years and it was courier what Cowell you know the College Hockey. And has played almost 208 HL games. Andy's. He's now seeing property all right. Roll. He I speak is. Someone they acquired deported Rochester when they traded HL defenseman in call rightly put dude is probably the first guy that's gonna get called up once. Cool cockpit door for instance it rated. And welcome back a lot of columns company got to meet the space at Rochester like hello map voting rights to features loses Zimmer stock groceries or on the way home from work to get breast milk that that money or. I think so yeah. Or you deposit. It. Whatever or or yell I'm Judy it's that. All he wants now this is nuts the the official release from the sabres it does not say that they are signing skewed to Rochester immediately semi pro I know what area plants to make him very tolerant. It like I beat my first commentaries. That separates us. Deals under the thing that happened before the things happen if the things that happened it happened this what it looks like. Sure yeah and exciting. And it feels like except that matters. More. But he. Rarely does. This is a very weird a replacement part it. Beat is I'm going to be on the air for four hours tomorrow right after it and that's crazy you know. And we're going to be taught about the tour and that it wanted to actually added power and whatever and even worse like you know. Certainly capable of talking about any moves that happened around the NHL but. It might be the biggest things that happened was yet completely last night it was the Washington Ben Bishop was treated on Sunday from Tampa to LA. And right. And tomorrow is Telecom is going to be. We want to met bode news I think quite meaty you know or. Clinton woods and electrical companies which I I I appreciate the outbreak that voting their actual regional players. Like he's a cool after he's walking around the arena. I reports on one. Okay. I BV a reprise of the it's all right okay. So yeah others know that he counts yet but I really goal for an like you know it's important for. But it'll OK here. Imagine the most passionate sabres fans in Western New York. Is currently convicted on. That's being they need to do tomorrow and seen that people think they need to do tomorrow. Like they don't and that's our failure. Any year where they're gunning for the playoffs are there wishing for whatever it may be the division to get a more favorable seeding in the pretty. There things that you want to sure. And it sees it where your clear the just looking toward the future. I want doctor. All or eight years like pretty recently where you got. Star players people you watched for all the years that you love your problem. And builds your Ryan Miller's like ice that you would expect are going to keep you significant return yet that that you want that they'll. As that is right but this year like we are just we are. Don't really talk about quarterback purgatory at deliberately double and absolutely I don't have the sexy. I'm getting reports from. Thick ice to trade that that are gonna upset people because. Well. People have burgers eyes. Out of anybody that's close to our hearts at all. Nor in my soul far out of it that I I am but at the orphanage last rating but there's no there's no going to bottom now I'm just. I'm just I'm just hanging out under treatment guys that we barely even know man then you know keep going in him finish thirteenth account. Let's say what you want about the or to a playoff dream die with those two horrible losses it just happened. It can't be dead because that's all we have liked it. After tomorrow I'm going to be looking for the sabres to win a couple games and gets excited again. That we're that's for you are urea a probably futile chase for a playoff spot regardless of what goes down to I. I want to tell you. With great conviction. You know be too well. Detectable lead me that I'm not going to do go out anymore. But I'm not only a bit of what I'm gonna watch it was right I would watch it I'm addicted. What I feel like. The the nights of watching all the team that this with the bye week. You know before they can modify it lost to Colorado and Arizona. Where might very proud client will now will Florida playing golf. Or escorts and or second half the pizza is. I don't do that anymore that's what I like. Let's I wanna save are not gonna do that anymore. Obstacles that limit the that I that I stole all the laughs I was watching. Accuracy in Montreal. It ought to be exit the owner viruses and were haven't been together what we do a lot of nights of watching a hockey game you know that was the only game at the time it was time. And at one point or fifteen minutes into a tournament that. Willingly chosen to want to New Jersey game but that's Ebert rightly we don't watch it looks like old. Like packages I've just worked its channels I just picked it would like to the that's what drew it myself let them do what the military. It just went through with the like an underwater camera. Body. Upper right. Roger's doubles. Until about the actual real level. Mysteries solved. But futures now a story about the actual double agent watched that watched that. Authors editors of that now there's a moron Netflix probably. Sixers workers. OK you know like I should do that there. You can disconnect yourself from scoreboard watching art but the you're watched their horse is injured watched. This urged to leave it up because what about that Mars that no runways Shearer was curriculum. So maybe. I was not one and no probably record. Just watch and that's. My point is that the spotlight. Roddick I left it optional the sabres win and they'll have a of that they'll lose the re over. Regulation. At 1230 whatever that's what's happened. To them yet. Paul is Paul Paul Hill who will join us at the bottom of the hour here rule we'll have our usual cast of it's cast of who really it's it's Paula properly DB staples self apart to for India at 5 o'clock and I laid out the schedule or against all coming up the Bobby are robbery at work on slate with your 716. And then sail later. For his first date at the compound but. Right so that the that the deadlines come and go at these games to come and go. And like one you know this is I'm I'm disorder. I'm just sort of hanging out. And it is arm. It is easy flat it would idle I don't wish that the sabres head. To go through what we already went through when you have the park with those popular. If you these envelopes to some extent the players. You know that have liked well let's. He spoke to shore. Up their flaws but there was excitement. Within what they were about to duplicate the work were guarding it which is change change right and here I'm just kind of they get a better defenseman you scroll in the summer somehow hold this. I don't know how they're gonna do that exactly. And what it's just I. More interested moving forward in what happened with this coach that I am what they're doing in the next 24 hours a straight line Christiane just. Paul Paul I started this spot. And it got distracted on a reprieve from Mitchell all made a lot of sense to be. Like late last week we talked about the deadline estimate that we've all these games. Before the deadline that would be in the two on the weekend apparent loss in the swamp and if this bill. To avoid just reading every. Music. The matters. They could win all they should still probably tree Demetric oh Kaufman Corey Franzen and call for war in late fall in. Over what these guys aren't making a big difference for your hockey team anyway and it you can get second round pick spore which company exec picnic go ahead. It shouldn't be rail your pursue growth. You know third in the division the second wildcard or whatever. And that's sort of hit me like OK that's not really a decision to be made probably well and that's Sasaki is treatable and offer the buyer seller that whatever we're selling I I demanding nothing but Hibbert tomorrow a. It's it is back but that's the answer to turn that it is now another mitnick they moved today. Not cheaper. Or. Somebody. As you voted Matt definitely meant a majority. Vote. I don't know. DOE. The people that's the BO BIT. Shirt met with one. Yet now looks odd all right now I got a problem though and I hope that's why I hope that's step one. But I'm gonna do is get this guy out here have won the Mets had won the meant voting Booth it's part of the she. Cut it reported the rock idol. RE eight I always want concerts I've been a person I can enjoy a oh. The like that can that happen if that's all that happens I don't think I'm going to be any more relaxed this EE go to France treated. What's that like. I don't equal cop out I don't need it here but it really is free that's for I would sell short myself and I don't meet at. I've him like I'm not offended that affront to my sensibility but. If the going rate right now more. Pretty garbage you bowl defenseman it's the second round pick. I think ultimately accountable though it's one of those. Like second round picks mattered at all and it is and get. Like a eventually a second round pick if you want or Carlyle Bailey might be yours. School thought maybe or you'll get the Rasmussen asked one are excited about they got last year in the coal operators it turns out the second round like I. Just just give me some of the guys that not a part of the plan and believe it then you need something and in this case something isn't it. It's a sucker and you know. As a reasonable last night our soul. I would recommend them to do those things but even that is really just checking a box that helicopter occurrences like that painting by numbers like I you know. You should be openly treatment of Callaway I need to. Vision car there are twenty teams out there that are looking at for potential playoff run. I'm no longer one of them sold that makes me a solar. So Zell right so get out here make it out of my head in her memories that. Steve you routine the same way that we do. The GQ this us. Will he do trade deadline time or is it just it if you are him at your ID GM in the NHL. This is very exciting based on the fact that conversations SharePoint app well. That's at stake I think he strikes me. As someone who gets frequently and maybe easily frustrated. By the lack of activity GAAP and because I I think he. He may not want to trade certain players on his roster. I think he lives to sit at a gas or. Are or where ever have a smoldering and it beat the guy from San Jose's and pay. But take pride event to clean up your team have the conversation. And then hang up on each other babies rarity till the U Campbell we wanted to. An offensive offer you your baby again of the regular border and then again it's we're back at it I think I think that's I think he likes that a league like the looks the process. That the game cards that it is. Whether I actually looking to trade these guys are out I think he wants action. Seoul. I think any time there's an opportunity. And there's going to be activity in the week. I'm I'm always with him as the GM of the sabres aren't always going to be a little more. A lot more. I'm a work but I was previous to right now architecture we were asleep rule deadlines in free agency and even the draft destroyed. Everything at nineteenth and Edwards that dude where's this guy I think is he's ready proactive he's not a you know. Presently we gave it if someone called him as much as he might love the idea of hanging onto Evander Kane signing him to a contract extension. And trusting that he's going to continue to produce on the ice and stay out of trouble office. If somebody offers him a top pair defenseman. Pretender like I think he's gonna really think about. Whereas. I think previous administrations here would be to Mary that are now like my god I'm not I'm not talk to these part of Michael Moore or whatever I think Murray would. Wasn't. It Tom. McCain specifically. There was sentiment. I don't know 78 goals ago. That this guy had to go couldn't be here problem at all that ever bought that to be you know where. And I liked it right now make the case wide patch Tuesday here. You. Fairly large margins. The most consistently exciting player on the ice that you are in the business of selling tickets that the what that building and I watched every game every period every minute I don't have. Well I watched games. But I don't built it light around talking with you are Clinton will be more tightly. Michael Michael rightly I think there's guys who consistently. Chipped actors. Looks like guys go to law for. Next. I acts in this league and obviously he expects a plan if the cell is entertainment. Yeah. So he's. It I love the you know the although rumblings of what he's like off the ice. And that's before he got. Hear what a lot with that right now. Like that we're jobs and money in your backstop for big. It took like Britney. It's interesting. And it's interesting. He's interesting. Well I go I certainly respect the the there in the business of entertainment. But eventually. What I need to do is build the best hockey team Mike and bill and I am not lying to the fact that right now. And and maybe you know even moving into the future while he's under contract would leave one more year. Which is I think really is my starting point for any conversation about what happens with them. And I I need to find a better attachments. And I don't know home comical about doing that. And then I start adding up backers and legal likeness. The salary cap is a reality I've got contract extensions looming for Michael and Ryan are are already committed. Six million dollars a year rule owed so committed five and a half million dollars a year or crystal white and pocketed seven and a half million dollars to Ryan O'Reilly I'd miss the goalie at some. Point although it's not an issue right now and this new defenseman it's gonna have to be paid to the top pair guy. And how many of the old whale size contracts cannot afford to have on my team. That's one part next part does he want to beat year beyond next season. And then I'm back to I don't like it that the and if Evander Kane. Right now can give me that the man and I don't know all we does he wanna be here and cannot afford to date him in to my structure. Then he becomes a chip in the game for me to get that team where does that come from on daylight tomorrow. You write articles like that it may it may not happen tomorrow. There may be an offseason for but he he is the peace much like the same arc which you know you might do ball all brought it up would you could. Find somebody that wants to make Detroit Columbus and Nashville made last year where right you answer it the national for Seth Jones but okay. I'm gonna have a listen to you Abbas and my partner. And that's not. The question again that's not a deal for tomorrow right why. Every paper entitled the bright spots are not right and again he would Noelle I would think mean. I wanna I wanna believe he's already got an idea. Bomb because the window to negotiate beyond. Next year's contract expiration McCain opens July 1. You might have some idea is whether you trust him to be a part of your team. And I'm like yes that Marie ward he's producing he's young we keep fit keeping the big plays to get them I think he might be laudable pass a lot. To try to make that happen bought is realistic. And Dulles he want to be you're with. Courtesy wanna keep the open market go plea or what it so. All those things that he he could. Eventually become a guy that if they can't get a contract extension with them on and don't move on next year's Hagan. All season. Danica which everybody better canes got 28 goals the Prado or coming out and contract I got to do something. And I might be selling lower then because his contract expiring I am so well. Is that likely to me at all all that said that. A moral. That deal presents itself I'd find. Rasmus whistle lions' dream partner in a trade with Evander Kane probably. It's more likely that's gonna happen that that happens in June at the draft or July free agency opens or went up. This is where I start talking about it but I gotta be ready to to do that if if the needle. Well yeah especially because you know. And it is gonna talk to everybody so it's not necessarily. If you like it was tempered set yes I literally talked to every single general manager on that day I talked. Might not be everything in my because ago it not that good here okay by. But if you are having conversations. Those that part of the overall process of roster building. In the NHL involves conversations that happen on this day and Rasheed could easily be planted four and a where right now what. Talking about this is right here okay cool let's let's get together where else in the playoffs we're not brought matter right back to make it happen but yeah I would be. Will be very surprised if any sort of roster overhaul pipe that he'll surely happen. But with Murray as the GM I'm always sort of and I'm not I'm never going to be stone. Like you might might sitting around waiting in anticipation of it in all not that I read writers and for Mike today we alive it's a 16 on the bull like by the way. Sabres play the predators and it's a Tuesday night February predators are out. Will preview that. And talk about the trade deadline would Paul Hill and after a break rob ray at four live here at 716. And then later is the place because of the lot. We will shift our focus to Indianapolis where the NFL scouting combine is beginning at our self about GO is there. And we'll get a preview of that. From cell. Later on elegance in the 5 o'clock hour pregame at six sabres and predators tonight at seven all here on WG. Today's deal of the day goes like this hunger got your goal. Today's deal today for my mobile virtually thirty dollar certificate to hear and understand Albert Joey don't be yelling go that's why. We yelling go restaurant in Lancaster fifty dollars. So. Apple the I yelling don't satisfy the appetite for lunch dinner or late night notching. Great burger toward putting wings and cost pizza and more. There are bubble burst dot com. Joining us now all on the AT&T hotline. Is Paul Hamilton and I'm cool bought by the way Brad writer is here for like that it realize that once mixes with the game day sabres in Nashville Predators faced off. A little after seven in the and Paul wall is the situation as best you know it as it pertains to the goal right now. Well Omar god spoke. Like he is going to be the guy that's playing and he was the first guy off the ice Leonard did not come on the ice until. Midway through the morning skate and of course he missed the last game. All mark pretty much spoke like he's the guy and files what comes in and says swapped wives game time included goaltenders. And what are. Did say he is cleared concussion protocol he got hit three times in the head and I counted. One turned into a goaltender interference call Barry that was the hit the autumn. And he said he did start with a headache with that so just to be careful he went through NHL protocol he has passed protocol and cleared. But. They said he didn't know what they're after workout today in. Doesn't seem like he's playing tonight but files but wouldn't say for sure. Well the good news is that he doesn't have a concussion. Or obesity pity he cycle through it quickly because when I heard about that and he wasn't. Dress for the game on Sunday. You know knowing what he went through prior to his arrival here. I mean I you can't immediately. Get awfully concerned that a guy who's been playing. Look at the healthiest and longest stretch of receiver career year. And worry that it was about it on dot. No you're right he does have a concussion because they would cleared him right there would've found out he did so. Yeah that's offensive absolutely you can make here since he's been cleared so quickly that he did not have a concussion it was just a little headache from it may just wanted to check and be sure. Is this standard operating procedure for files but to be Q. About the lineup than they know about the gulf that are talked about earlier if it had not at all he gives me goaltender. Might be the first time hasn't he if it may might have been one other time. Now he was asked are any lineup decisions going to be affected by the trade deadline. For example. You don't want your crew call for tonight's C don't trust them he said no that. That doesn't know my thought process was all right you're starting all market headed Nelson. Are you trying to keep Nelson healthy case you can trade him. Or is it just time to give the all star in the age old look again see how much battery is this year than maybe was last year. From a bowl yeah indeed right like L to be gained from the other thing right now what's what's it'll it'll mark. Yeah I mean it or are obviously Paula you know a lot of game time decision because the beach who look up to be traded ten minutes. You know pretty much so I mean I did I guess I get to some extent where problems come on from. He's not sure who might still be eager. Advocate sports what he usually gets the goaltender in medal won out his parents his team that he does battle line. But I usually doesn't leave goaltender out of conversations so. And may be Weiner just got cleared maybe the reason he only took half the work out was because he might have been seeing the doctor at the time. Yeah doctor might have been at the arena. And he was being examined. And he may have gotten cleared halfway through the work out now. Brazil all bark hallmark was the guy who who who laughed considerably earlier than the other two Goldman's. And maybe they wanted to see how one reacted to doing any kind of work on the ice cream getting cleared by the doctors wanting to go exercise and see. You know how you feel afterward and you know I don't know what the timing of while it was news conferences ball whether he would know how letter came through that you know that minimal work out that could impacted too. About about that wolf we'll find out eventually and you know maybe letter plays maybe all of marketplace. The safest bet here is that bills and isn't I think probably. All the way up here he was the last guy off but but you know what's your view of this team. Moving forward with twenty games left it. East it really. Those those last two losses obviously it's there where things were standings. It's hearing particularly how the last what went down. But ultimately. I think it's it was a team going into those two games a team that had you know a long shot at making the playoffs but not. By any stretch that and now I think they're a team where to walks out and make the playoffs. Not that says that's what it is is it not by any stretch and now it's not that the it changed more than that because I think the the public perception is that things with the the collapsed. In the last game at that that's what it sees it. I'm saying and I think that's when the players of the season and debating save and none of them says it. But walking around the locker room and Arizona. Seeing Brian Gionta still sitting there were in full equipment except as Jersey which you know oversee. And he wasn't alone there were a lot of guys just sitting there. Georges could currently speak heated know what to say. Aziz he doesn't wanna say the same thing over and over again because it's again the same thing over and over again. Just the feel of the rule that I god is it ended in Arizona and they know. You know what teams have something that's effective Smart you have to be ignorant not to know you know you can't go into those two places and lose both games. And thing. You know you are going anywhere and you know just that or boy I mean you've played the worst teams in the league you should. And then there I didn't expect them to win in Denver noble book knows that I would be shocked actually have one there. Because of circumstances a five days off combined. And people keep wanting twist these words soils stress it. Five David off combined with altitude not altitude alone you teams can go in there and win with the altitude it's not easy but you can figured out and lived through it when you have many extra five days and you combine it with the altitude. That was just to me a combination that just was not going to work in the islanders to the same thing they went in and lost to Colorado. Coming out of their bye week so wasn't just the sabres that did it I don't know if other teams have had the same situation either. But I know two of them did an able lost in Colorado so. I had no expectation of them winning that game whatsoever but the Arizona game. First of all I thought there are gonna win from the start and second of all when you. Had to now thing. And good control what's going on in the third period you're actually out shooting the other team at that time that they're your best defensemen. This cannot be your best defenseman and I think an awful lot of rest mistress to wind and rest shall ask mistress alignment is a number one defenseman in this league is only going to get better. But he can't be the guy that starts the game. I mean it's just horrible giveaway off a face off it's quickly your net and just you could just see the panic Saturn like Bono. In your ego and who knows what happens in that game at that mistake is that made maybe they do get that back Reich Bulldog because. The bad thing has happened to him yet so they still brimming with confidence and they still of a two nothing lead. And they're still not sitting back there they're getting opportunities the other teams get a few opportunities. And who knows that there are able to finish that game they probably would would finish that game. But it just can't be your best defenseman make in the play Ryan O Reilly for two straight games now has been your fourth press center. That is that cannot happen he has accepted the challenge of being the highest paid Saber however. And they are too many nights you're walking away seeing what was wrong with trying to rally tonight he has to be better there are nights where you just love the way he plays. And he does Purdue's but for two straight games he was your fourth press center. That can't happen. All it OpenId AT&T hotline with us I'm the bull by Brad writer filling in warm like today were alive at that once it sabres in Nashville Predators. Coming your way tonight a little after seven pre game at six. So all of that's said with the assorted downcast. Feeling in the room after the Arizona game. How big a task is it to expect this team. Two card pick out of that I mean it's a team that is not had a great attention to detail. Maybe in the best of times. If they feel like they're post what are we looking at here for I didn't the foreseeable future. Well even if they won both those games I'd be sitting here saying to you I've seen nothing. All season long when his team that would tell me they're gonna go on that long. Little run that they need to go want to get in the playoffs. I justice you know you see a little bit of it and then it goes away many see a little bit of a bit to see enough of it. So what there's nothing. At all that is indicated to me that they are ready to go on the run necessary which is even a more severe run now. To be able to make the playoffs oh. You know I just think. Murray has has worked Bill Murray has to figure out now we have a team that doesn't listen to its coach. This the coach does not coach them to sit back and Penn. He teaches them north south to go forward. But. You know it is. That that turnovers I mean picked. There's there's a disconnect between the team and the coach why are is that team. Constantly standing in the locker room after a loss saying well coached tools what to do but we didn't do it. So is the coach not able is not able to get his point across well enough. So the team talking a lot of ex acute the game plan that he wants to see out there. Does he have guys who weren't Smart enough to be able to execute it is it too complicated. They he Murray has to figure it out either have to figure out he's got some players in here. Who are never gonna figure out if they haven't figured it out two years or not gone. Or he's got to coach it just is not relating well that was players and we we know the players don't like the coach which again. I'll say it again so why I've airlock coaches who are dislike Mike Babcock is right in the top of that list but his team plays for him. So that you don't have to love the coach but you still have to be but he still has to be able to get the best out of you. And there was a decisions Murray has to make and maybe Google has a decision Miami we will we import whatever but he under the fire if you want to go to federal state himself is Marie doing what he needs to do. Are you know is it's or are of them to earth some of the most he'd made questionable or does he need to be held accountable. There's a lot of things that they have to figure out here they wanna become a good team. Yeah I mean I guess I guess I I've I would. Rule out who glow looking at Murray like you brought files but me and now you're telling me he's got a goal woke up one click right I got so the meal. Real slim percentage dance about what. On the table like asleep I would I would say. Oh how widespread is this those are the players like him things the city in its its abroad it's a broad general statement. But does that. I mean it is just me you know I am well nitpicking about every little thing but. I'm sure that every single player on the roster doesn't feel exactly the same way about any thing let alone any person. So can you just feel I'm how widespread this this problems. No I've heard it from many corners of the locker room. You know that this this is a lot deeper than you guys think it is type of thing. It's. It's the key. Players play up to fight because they're so scared of making a mistake because he's going to be all over him. Type of thing and and you know what you'd walk into the Roman errors and nine in the race boards there were nine different things. And they're not digesting at all. You know they don't like the way some of the way. Power plays are lines that get set up some of them don't feel they're being used the way they should be used. Type thing and you know some of them fielder too easy to defend. Because CEO of coming out of their zone you you'll see this quite often Germany's appointed itself. All the sort of the president thinks is going to be a player there they passed what the players not there. So what were where's what's the confusion there. Right somebody asked me yesterday Paula the show started are you like what why it's too bad passing team and I think it pertains directly to this slick. Guys are expecting guys to be somewhere and they are not there because not everyone is paying attention to the system. And don't respect the system that's what Robert waters thought I think were disrespectful. Very you know they're not they're not. You can't be relied upon Mike ID guy and that's gonna make you a bad passing heated. Somebody sport to be over there at US what people prepared you'll split second over there have been out there are you what did the. But just because the players feel that way to me in the right right now so that's what Maria to figure out. Of the players is winding. Are are they right. Are they not right is the coach Wright he's he's got a sample here you know plus he's got to get. He's got to finish the rebuild I mean nobody said this was going to be a Stanley Cup winning team this year but I think. Well I don't know I know the coach and GM both said they expect this team to challenge for the playoffs this year and that hasn't happened. So there's accountability issue here why what what happened Jack like a lot for 21 games that's definitely a factor. But what's they're record with Jack Michael in the lineup is out of playoff record if you take it out over. 82 games and you know what I don't I'm home I don't think it is salt. Audio we were hoping that they would end up with. Appointed game while Michael was aren't properly talking about that a lot and they did back. And here we are 62 games played in just one. It got 62 easily put him in there than ever and ever really elevated. Whom are improving on Madden it's not gonna give them casino 82 times one is 82 that's not a playoff. So. I know you're talking earlier what makes this trade deadline a little bit different. Is the expansion draft and I think you're going to see more hockey trades and you've ever seen. In this particular trade deadline you normally don't see too many hockey trade but it trade deadline and I know he commander Cain would be one that did happen. Hodgson for Cassie at the time seem like a hockey trade when you look at it now wasn't compatible at that time it seemed like a hockey trade and but with the expansion draft. And it was pointed out to me by a hockey executive that hey. Minnesota. They have a lot of defenseman. Anaheim does and their gonna lose a pretty good defenseman for nothing in the expansion draft that they don't do something. So they may be interested in moving a defenseman. That you that a sabres would be very very interested in. You know now instead of waiting you know for the draft or the week before the draft when those trades usually are made. And further complicating it is the use each ethnic decision which track on a goal. I don't they're protecting that and like reread skater right you might be sitting on the border line. And have the ability to make a move that solidifies which what you wanna go with that at all about that all so yep that's why we are. Oblique but a it possibly could make tomorrow a little bit different just because of that be where GM's having that in mind does that bring guys like Paul I don't know markers for illegals and its currency and click I like that more into the conversation restricted free agents to beat. That. You don't maybe maybe those are hockey two ready to quote unquote candidates. Sure why it should absolutely I think it would better earthy you know what we were talking about though last last week. Somebody. You've got some really young defenseman well you willing to part with samurai and art if you want you know that type of betrayed. You know 23 year old her for don't care what Sam notes when he won 21 year old for a 22 year old something like that. And you know would you be willing to make that type of deal. Where the predators you know did that with Nashville. So so all those things could say they will be but I think they're at least going to be considerations when phone calls are being made tomorrow. All we've gone super logger but both before you go. 100% and school culprits get traded you know maybe don't wanna. Percent I you never know you can find somebody to treat them too and Natalie Hurst and give them away but. There's there's there's of of really great cancel got a paltry right. I think than others record chance especially since guys like Ron means he have been treated it's like my. He hasn't been relevant in the NHL about five years. And he he fetched a second round pick so affront here the end. You know although all of them are bouncing around in Smith of the red wings. You know you should be able to bounce who often on and around to everything. Jamie that would be a big story is broader. The security amendment right Williams I do we Amanda is one a mature audience crashed car. He picked up. When I'm not glad it was a crack. Well Brad vehicle crash their cars anyways dad okay and here's why didn't speak opera there and it's that it has been pleased that you heard genie back. That's like the girl in my head. It's got him. It's his other. With whom we hear her name Jones see is Jones. Just the basic grizzly in the fifth. If that is not right we don't work to do that often we still have that that ability to. He pitched a all right Paul eight I GR title he'll join me to suck the pre game but Tom Brian Gionta what are the other Saturday. Are you still does not want to be traded and he said he wants to see this series the captain of this team he wants to see it through he has a he has control. From the fact that there's only five teams that Murray can trade him to without having his permission doesn't seem like you'll get permission to anybody else he has. No interest being traded and he can't do anything about it if it's one of those five teams but. As he said and he's he's maintain this all along he's the captain this team whether it's good whether it's bad he wants to be here for all. Would you predict that hurried odder situations ball. Well to them us told me he has not spoken with Gionta personally now we know we've spoken to the agent. But he has not spoken to not to personally talked about this but I via. He knows how I feel Summers nodded not on the you know rights of one on any spoken to the it to so he knows O'Brien feels. He may have a conversation but maybe had one today. I talked to him up and over the weekend so. But. I'm sure he knows Bryant field. Are Paul thank you very much for this.
